Reader’s Links for April 22, 2021

Each day at just after midnight Eastern, a post like this one is created for contributors and readers of this site to upload news links and video links on the issues that concern this site. Most notably, Islam and its effects on Classical Civilization, and various forms of leftism from Soviet era communism, to postmodernism and all the flavours of galloping statism and totalitarianism such as Nazism and Fascism which are increasingly snuffing out the classical liberalism which created our near, miraculous civilization the West has been building since the time of Socrates.

This document was written around the time this site was created, for those who wish to understand what this site is about. And while our understanding of the world and events has grown since then, the basic ideas remain sound and true to the purpose.

So please post all links, thoughts and ideas that you feel will benefit the readers of this site to the comments under this post each day. And thank you all for your contributions.

This is the new Samizdat. We must use it while we can.

    In case you doubted that there was a conspiracy to deceive you going on, take a look at this piece of deceptive propaganda. The actual video of this police shooting shows a rabid black teenager about to plunge a knife into either the face or neck of another girl when the police open fire and kill her. But NBC News decides not to show you that and leaves the incident open to speculation that maybe the officer fired for no reason other than that the girl was black. NBC News, for some reason, wants you to think the black girl was murdered by the police because they are racist white men who hate negroes. And then NBC hopes that huge crowds of negroes arise in the dead of night and start slitting white throats… That’s what NBC wants to see happen… Gee, they wouldn’t be being paid by China would they…?

    It only speaks to the fact that either too many people don’t understand what money is and where its value comes from, or else they do and cynically make up capital-squandering white elephants even though it is knowingly based on false scientific concepts.

    • The left likes to yell about going green, what are they gong to do when their carbon neutral and carbon negative starts reducing the plants due to lack of CO2? To say nothing about what happens when the animal life starts suffering from the lack of O2?

      • I would like to drive to Florida and see my Grandchildren but the border is closed. In 1987 a prof of the Environmental Ethics class told us Florida would be under water by 2014. The sky was falling way back in 1987 and it is still falling. Anybody out there tired of stupid professors yet?

        • The “(coastal city of choice) will be under water by (sometime soon) has to be the biggest blockbusting scam of all time. Al Gore himself bought a 5 million $ condo on beachfront in Florida at the peak of his bullshit narrative. And people still didn’t wake up.

    Look at this. The Blacks are demanding “dhimmitude” for whites visiting the sacred “Shrine of the Holy George Floyd”. The sign lets you know that if you’re white you’re only there at their pleasure and you should act in a subdued and respectful manner – shamed by your own impurity. That’s exactly what the Quran says about dhimmis who live under Islamic rule. I’m surprised they don’t exact a “jizya” tax while they’re at it.

    You can argue about possible definitions of the word “fascism” but in my mind, that word describes a belief that your group is supreme and the other group is worthless and without rights and can be killed if necessary. It also means that your group has every right to attack and destroy the other “inferior” group. Do you think the current group of Democrats doesn’t fit my definition of “fascism”? How about Antifa? Black Lives Matter? They all look like Brownshirts to me…

    Thank God they killed Malcolm X or he would have converted all the Blacks to Islam and the whole situation would be ten times as bad…

    • If he hadn’t been killed the race war and the return to tribalism would have occurred while the Blacks were still under 10% of the nations population and when White Supremacism was still a semi dangerous problem. The return to tribalism would have made it a very real problem that would have driven the vast majority of the people of color out of the country. You are projecting today’s attitudes onto the people of the 1960s, they wouldn’t have put up with a lot of the BS.

      The riots of the 60s were stopped by the Missouri Governor calling out the National Guard, issuing fresh ammo to them and ordering them to put down the riot in KC. The official number of dead rioters as 100, a relative who worked in a KC hospital said there were over 100 dead at her hospital and that the other 5 or 6 hospitals had the same or greater numbers of dead. That is what would have happened in all states if the current problem or worse had occurred in the 60s.

      I was overseas at the time and didn’t learn the facts until several years later.

  5. Some of the debate text

    While fasting during the daytime, many Muslim Canadians continue to be on the front lines of our fight against COVID-19. During these unprecedented times, we remember the many contributions Muslim communities have made to our country since the pandemic began, as they have done for many generations.

    Sadly, I think the Prime Minister is more concerned with engineering a pandemic election so that he could guarantee a majority for himself, rather than focusing on benefits for, and the well-being of, Canadians. We saw a budget announced that was really just an election budget.

    What difference would it make? The Emergencies Act, for example, allows the government to decide where critical supplies should go. That would include vaccines.
    We are getting reports that Ontario has for political reasons not listened to science and has not delivered vaccines to the places where they are most needed. Low-income, racialized communities with high levels of COVID were not given the vaccines they should have received, in preference for areas where Conservative voters predominate. I do not know if this is true, as it is a media report, but it is absolutely wrong. It verges on the criminal. Certainly there is more we should do to ensure that vaccines go where scientists say they should go

    As often happens, global crosswinds can blow through the smallest local dust-ups. Such may be the case with a cargo ship sailing for Danish shipping line Thorco, which was caught in Sri Lanka this week entering port without declaring a hazardous cargo of uranium hexafluoride gas (or UF6).

    The ship, M/V BBC Naples, is flagged by Antigua and Barbuda and is on its way from Rotterdam (the Netherlands) to China. The report caught my eye because the ship is carrying UF6 from Europe to China, which raises a few questions.

  7. Alberta RCMP participate in recital ceremony in recognition of Ramadan

    The Alberta RCMP was honoured to be invited for the first time to participate in part of the observance of Ramadan on Friday, April 16 at the Akram Jomaa mosque in Calgary. This invitation involved a recital of the Islamic call for prayer at sunset by Corporal Nader Khalil around 8:00 pm, which signified to Muslims the time to break their fast for that day. Respecting current physical distancing rules and mask requirements, the community gathered outside the mosque for the evening prayer recital. Approved by the municipalities of Edmonton and Calgary, this year mosques will be able to broadcast the brief call to prayer on speakers for the duration of Ramadan. The public is welcome to observe this in an opportunity to celebrate cultural diversity and support inclusion in our communities.

    Ramadan is the Arabic name for the ninth month of the Islamic lunar calendar, and lasts either 29 or 30 days, depending on when the new crescent moon is, or should be, visible. During this month period, there is a practice of spiritual fasting from dawn to dusk each day with a sunset prayer each day to break the period of fasting for the day. The final day of Ramadan is normally a large and festive celebration known as Eid al-Fitr and is one of the two major religious holidays of the Muslim calendar.

    As we continue to adapt to new ways of gathering and interacting, we look forward to more unique opportunities like this to be able to engage with citizens and the diverse communities in Alberta.

    • Hand of God” technique invented by Brazilian nurse draws praise from WHO chief

      Brazilian nurse Lidiane Melo earned praise from WHO director-general Tedros Ghebreyesus after inventing a technique using surgical gloves and warm water to calm and treat struggling COVID patients.

      Footage filmed on Tuesday in Nova Iguacu shows Lidiane preparing some gloves while explaining how she had this breakthrough idea.

      “This idea came during the pandemic last year. With the war scenario that we were living through, what I had were the gloves and an agitated patient who could not get any oxygen. I tried the idea of this simple technique and worked out,” explained Melo.

      Tying a knot between two gloves and filling them with hot water to create the feeling of a real hand, Melo managed to improve blood circulation and brought calm to those who were feeling alone in an ICU bed.

      SOT, Lidiane Melo, Nurse (Portuguese): “It was very satisfactory for me to see how the situation of the patient changed, she became calmer and it helped to alleviate their pains. Seeing there were people on her side, regardless of the shift, and being worried about the COVID complications helped her feel more welcome,” stated Melo.

      The invention led to praise from WHO director-general Tedros Ghebreyesus. After being introduced to the technique Tedros posted a picture of the ‘Hand of God’ in action via Twitter. ‘No words can express my admiration for healthworkers? on the frontlines in this pandemic and the incredible ways they are finding to comfort their patients. There’s so much we must learn from you and do to assist and protect you,’ read the post by Ghebreyesus.

Seeing there were people on her side, regardless of the shift and being worried about the COVID complications helped her feel more welcome.”

      SOT, Lidiane Melo, Nurse (Portuguese): “Most of the hospitals have hot water in the showers, and when there is none then the water can be heated on the microwave instead. So, basically, wherever there is hot water it can be placed inside the gloves, closed with a knot, and placed between the hands of the patient.”

On Friday, Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi announced the government would be taking ‘a reasonable risk’ by reinstating the system, with restaurants in yellow and white zones allowed to serve meals outdoors starting on April 26.

  12. NEWSWEEK – YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki Gets ‘Freedom Expression’ Award Sponsored by YouTube

    YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki received a “Free Expression” award from the Freedom Forum Institute in a virtual ceremony sponsored by YouTube, an online video platform owned by Google.

    On Thursday, YouTube creator Molly Burke presented Wojcicki with the accolade in a video shared to the platform. “I’m so excited to be here tonight to present Susan Wojcicki with the Free Expression award. As the CEO of YouTube, Susan is facing some of the most critical issues around free expression today,” Burke said.

    Wojcicki sat down for an interview during the online ceremony, during which she emphasized the importance of free speech and the role that YouTube plays in protecting it.

    “I’ve just seen the real benefits that freedom of speech has, as well as representing people of all different backgrounds and all different perspectives, and the freedoms that we have, we really can’t take for granted,” she said. “We really have to make sure that we’re protecting them in every way possible. I feel, because of my family history, a deep connection to those freedoms and I’m very thankful for the freedoms that I have.”

    The tech CEO also discussed the platform balancing people’s right to free speech with protecting the community from harmful content.

    “We want to be able to have as diverse and open a platform as possible and represent as many views as possible on the platform, but we also need to make sure there are limits,” she said. “Since the beginning of YouTube we’ve had community guidelines.”

    “President Joe Biden is already starting to push people too far with his constant refrains about how racist this country is,” writes Quin Hillyer at the Washington Examiner.

    He was at again during his remarks Tuesday evening when he played the “systemic racism” card for perhaps the thousandth time since his inaugural speech promising “unity.”

    But his continuous hammering away at what he calls the putrid “soul of America” also seems to run contrary to his own espoused views. These views were the substance of a CNN article published in March of 2019, a time when the Democrats understood the former vice president was an aging relic and wished him gone from the primary race.

    central role in shaping and shepherding the tough-on-crime bill will likely face scrutiny in a Democratic primary should he run for president in 2020. His 1993 comments, which were in line with the broad political consensus to tackling crime at the time, are at odds with a new bipartisan coalition of activists and lawmakers.”

    After the murder conviction of the policeman who killed George Floyd, Virginia’s progressive politicians are calling for passage of the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act, which would allow police departments to be sued when police stops aren’t racially and sexually balanced.

    Congressman Bobby Scott (VA-03) said, “This verdict is a start, but it does not absolve Congress and the federal government of our responsibility to reform policing across the country, and it is a reminder of the need for the Senate to pass the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act.”

    Virginia’s senior Senator, Mark Warner, called on his Senate colleagues to pass the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act: “George Floyd’s life mattered. Justice has been served…we owe it to Mr. Floyd, his family, and far too many others like him to take meaningful action to reform our policing system. We can start by passing the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act.”

    Joe Biden also backs this bill. But it has a downside: it could lead to more racial and sexual profiling, such as gender-based stops of female motorists, or racial or gender quotas for police stops.

    NYT wastes no time misreporting the shooting of a black teen in Columbus

    In 2018, New York Times publisher A.G. Sulzberger met privately with then-President Donald Trump, whom he “implored,” according to the Associated Press, “to reconsider his broad attacks on journalists, calling the president’s anti-press rhetoric ‘not just divisive but increasingly dangerous.’”

    “I warned that it was putting lives at risk, that it was undermining the democratic ideals of our nation, and that it was eroding one of our country’s greatest exports: a commitment to free speech and a free press,” Sulzberger is quoted as saying.

    So how well has the Times lived up to those lofty ideals? It hasn’t. It continues to publish half-truths and out-and-out lies that promote its far-left agenda. Sometimes the paper will brazenly neglect to issue a correction to a story one of its “journalists” has been forced to rewrite.

    The latest example of this occurred on Tuesday in the paper’s coverage of the tragic police-involved death of 16-year-old Makiyah Bryant, who was fatally shot by a police officer as she threatened another girl with a knife. The article references a tweet by civil rights attorney Benjamin Crump that itself erroneously claims that Bryant was “unarmed.” (Crump also incorrectly identified the girl’s age, according to family members.)

    • Israel says Syrian missile was not aimed at nuclear reactor

      JERUSALEM (AP) — The Israeli military said Thursday that a Syrian missile that reached deep into Israeli territory and set off air raid sirens near the country’s top-secret nuclear reactor was the result of a misfire and not a deliberate attack.

      The missile landed in southern Israel early Thursday, prompting Israel to respond with airstrikes on the missile launcher and other targets in Syria.

      The army’s chief spokesman, Brig. Gen. Hidai Zilberman, was quoted as telling military correspondents that the Israeli air force was already operating in Syrian airspace when the anti-aircraft missile was fired. He said the projectile, identified as a Russian-made SA-5 missile, missed its target and exploded in southern Israel.

      The missile, also known as an S200, set off air raid sirens in a village near Dimona, the southern desert town where Israel’s nuclear reactor is located, and some 300 kilometers (200 miles) south of Damascus.

      “There was no intention of hitting the nuclear reactor in Dimona,” Zilberman was quoted as saying.

      An Israeli missile-defense system tried but failed to intercept the incoming missile. Defense Minister Benny Gantz said the incident was under investigation.

      In Washington, Gen. Frank McKenzie, head of U.S. Central Command, gave a similar assessment to the Senate Armed Services Committee on Thursday.

  16. Journal de Montreal slammed for fuelling prejudice with front-page image of Trudeau in Indian garb

    QUEBEC CITY — Quebec’s minister responsible for the fight against racism says he’s concerned that the Journal de Montreal is feeding prejudice with its Thursday cover story.

    The Journal features an archival photo of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau dressed in traditional Indian clothing with the accompanying headline “India’s variant has arrived. So, Justin, are we cutting ties with India quickly this time?”

    Minister Benoit Charette responded Thursday by saying he was concerned about the consequences.

    He recalled that since the beginning of the pandemic, there has been an increase in racist acts targeting people of Chinese origin.

    “With similar representations, we risk feeding prejudice,” he said on Twitter.

    The Journal de Montréal later faced a barrage of criticism in the National Assembly.

    According to Liberal leader Dominique Anglade, the Montreal daily is making an “amalgam” that she calls “inappropriate” and even “very dangerous.”

    “What is the message?” she asked. “We must beware of Indians? The variant is the Prime Minister? We have to be very careful about the message we try to send to the population.”

    She also pointed out that Asian-Quebecers have been victims of prejudice and “absolutely unacceptable remarks.”

    “What we need is to make sure that we are all together to fight this virus,” she said

    “When it came to the British variant, there was no mention of ethnicity,” said Quebec Solidaire (QS) parliamentary leader Manon Masse.

    “The virus has no ethnicity,” she said at a news conference.

    Masse said the Journal de Montreal is “deflecting” the debate.

    “Is it necessary? Absolutely not,” she said.

    “The measure is always a good guide in times of crisis,” added PQ MNA Veronique Hivon. “I think we must be careful not to feed prejudices that, as we know, are already present in the current context.”

    Questioned on this subject, Premier Francois Legault said: “It is necessary to be careful not to stigmatize certain communities.”

    INDIAN VARIANT REPORTED IN QUEBEC
    On Wednesday, public health officials confirmed a first case of the Indian variant in Quebec, in the Mauricie–Centre-du-Quebec region.

    Legault announced that a letter signed by several provinces will be sent to Trudeau asking him to do more to protect the borders.

    “We can ask ourselves, on a flight from New Delhi to Montreal or Toronto, are there passengers who can be contaminated?” he said. “More needs to be done on international flights, on land entries and among ourselves, the provinces, we have agreed to do everything we can to reduce travel between provinces.”

    For now, the Legault government has no intention of further limiting inter-regional travel in Quebec or isolating the area in Mauricie where the Indian variant is located.

    RESPONSE FROM OTTAWA

    The debate quickly moved to the other side of the Ottawa River, where the New Democratic Party (NDP) was particularly scathing.

    “I am an opponent of Justin Trudeau, but the front page of the Journal de Montreal this morning is particularly disgusting,” said NDP MP Alexandre Boulerice. “It is an irresponsible and crazy amalgam. But above all, it encourages the stigmatization of a community. It is pitiful.

    “It doesn’t really surprise us, unfortunately, coming from a newspaper whose journalistic standards are crumbling every year, with more and more commentators from the populist right.”

    For his part, Conservative MP Alain Rayes seemed to approve of the Journal de Montreal’s work, reposting Justin Trudeau’s photo on Twitter and saying: “Nothing to add.”

    Throwing fuel on the Marxist fire.

    The trial of Derek Chauvin, the white ex-police officer charged with killing black suspect George Floyd in the process of restraining Floyd during an arrest, has made Minnesota once again the epicenter of intense nationwide attention, nearly a year after Floyd’s death. Add to this the riots that erupted over the accidental police shooting in Brooklyn Center on April 11th of a young black man, Daunte Wright. The last thing Minnesota needed at this time was an outside provocateur to throw more fuel on the fire. However, that is exactly what happened when radical California Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters dropped into Minnesota last Saturday to join a protest in Brooklyn Center demanding justice for Daunte Wright’s killing. In advance of jury deliberations over Chauvin’s fate, Waters used her response to a reporter’s question to call on protesters to “stay on the street” and “get more confrontational” if they don’t like the jury’s verdict.

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Smirnoff) has been getting a lot of heat, as Matt Margolis detailed, for thanking George Floyd for being good enough to die “for justice.” But amid all the scorn and ridicule Pelosi is justly receiving, a key point is being overlooked: While her words may have sounded mawkish, maudlin, and incomparably tone-deaf to outsiders, to true believers in the left’s new secular religion, everything she said was entirely appropriate. In her capacity as high priestess of this religion, Pelosi was performing a hieratic role and giving thanks to the new savior.

  20. Democrats Comply with the ChiComintern – Frontpagemag

    While Romania rejects entanglements with China’s Communist regime.

    Back in February, the government of Romania adopted a memorandum that would exclude Chinese firms from public contracts for highway or rail projects. This comes at a time when Romania “desperately needs to start infrastructure works,” according to deputy prime minister Dan Barna, concerned about companies that “do not live up to European standards.”

    As Barna and leaders around the world should know, Chinese infrastructure also falls short of American standards. Should that be doubted, consider the new span of the Bay Bridge from San Francisco to Oakland, California.

    California Democrats could have tapped federal money for the infrastructure project, but that would have required the use of American steel. California Democrats preferred Chinese steel and Chinese labor, and both fell short of American standards.

  21. sky news australia – Intellectual inquiry in ‘really sad place’ as Richard Dawkins cancelled by the left

    Sky News host Rowan Dean says Richard Dawkins getting cancelled for a tweet inviting discussion on identity politics was a sad reflection of society’s capacity to engage in intellectual inquiry.

    “What Dawkins said in his tweet was perfectly acceptable,” he told Sky News host Andrew Bolt.

    “Perfectly legitimate question and he even put in ‘discuss’- in other words, which is the classic thing you put in to tell the class ‘here’s two sides of a debate’ or ‘here’s a problem to be solved intellectually’ – off you go people, go and solve this intellectual conundrum.

    “He puts these conundrums out there – we used to call them brain teasers, we used to call them the opportunity for a good debate.

    “We are really in a sad place if that sort of intellectual inquiry or argument is now just verboten, it’s gone – you can’t say it.”

    In 2015, Rachel Dolezal, a white chapter president of NAACP, was vilified for identifying as Black.

    Some men choose to identify as women, and some women choose to identify as men.

    You will be vilified if you deny that they literally are what they identify as.

    • AHA strips Richard Dawkins of Humanist of the Year award after famed author criticizes transgenderism

      “It was also not my intent to ally in any way with Republican bigots in US now exploiting this issue.”

      The American Humanist Association (AHA) revoked biologist Richard Dawkins 1996 Humanist of the Year award, after the famed author of the “The God Delusion” criticized transgender ideology in a post on Twitter.

      […]The post by Dawkins created a firestrom of angry individuals on Twitter. Dawkins later caved to the mob and said he doesnt align with “Republican bigots.”

      “I do not intend to disparage trans people. I see that my academic ‘Discuss’ question has been misconstrued as such and I deplore this. It was also not my intent to ally in any way with Republican bigots in US now exploiting this issue,” he wrote.

      https://twitter.com/RichardDawkins/status/1381665011127451652

      […]“His latest statement implies that the identities of transgender individuals are fraudulent, while also simultaneously attacking Black identity as one that can be assumed when convenient. His subsequent attempts at clarification are inadequate and convey neither sensitivity nor sincerity,” the statement said.

      […]“The progress of science has helped us better understand who we are as trans people. As the American Psychological Association notes, ‘Many experts believe that biological factors such as genetic influences and prenatal hormone levels, early experiences, and experiences later in adolescence or adulthood may all contribute to the development of transgender identities,'”

    The United States Postal Service has been secretly collecting data on Americans’ social media posts, Yahoo News revealed Wednesday.

    According to a March 16 government bulletin obtained by the outlet, the USPS’ law enforcement arm is tracking citizens’ social media activity to gather data on a host of topics, including “inflammatory” postings and planned protests, that it shares across multiple federal agencies as part of an effort called the Internet Covert Operations Program, or iCOP.

    Yahoo News said the document, which was marked “law enforcement sensitive,” specifically mentioned an examination of alleged planned activity for March 20 and was distributed through Homeland Security’s fusion centers.

  23. China’s Fishing Fleet Is Vacuuming the Oceans

    China has by far the world’s largest fishing fleet. However, the Chinese fishing fleet is about much more than fishing. According to investigative reporter Ian Urbina, “Against the backdrop of China’s larger geo-political aspirations, the country’s commercial fishermen often serve as de-facto paramilitary personnel whose activities the Chinese government can frame as private actions.” Pictured: Filipinos protest China’s incursion in the West Philippine Sea, on June 21, 2019, in Manila, Philippines.

    Communist China seems increasingly to be depleting the world’s oceans of marine life. The country has by far the world’s largest fishing fleet of anywhere between 200,000 to 800,000 fishing boats — accounting for nearly half of the world’s fishing activity — approximately 17,000 of which belong to its distant-water fishing fleet. The growth has been made possible by enormous state subsidies. In 2012, for instance, the Chinese state poured $3.2 billion in subsidies into its fishing sector, most of it for fuel. However, according to a report from 2012, “government support for the fishing and aquaculture sector could be as much as CNY 500 billion (USD 80.2 billion, EUR 61.7 billion) when regional and national subsidies for rural-based fish farmers are taken into account.”

  25. Oklahoma lawmakers confronted by more than two dozen protesters

    More than two dozen angry protesters swarmed the Oklahoma House of Representatives chamber during a session on Wednesday to demonstrate against several bills that target demonstrators and trans girls.

    The House and Senate were forced to lock their chambers as the protesters entered the Capitol’s House gallery on the fifth floor while lawmakers were in session.

    Video shows the group chanting ‘no justice no peace’ and ‘Black Lives Matter’. But others heckled legislators, with one screaming ‘you are a f–king disgrace to the whole country!’

    One of the bills the group showed up to demonstrate against was a Republican-backed anti-protest bill that shields motorists who strike protesters with their cars when caught in a ‘riot’.

    Gov. Kevin Stitt signed the bill Wednesday.
