‘White Europe’: 60,000 nationalists march on Poland’s independence day

Excerpt from The Guardian

Tens of thousands of nationalists have marched through Warsaw to mark Poland’s independence day, throwing red smoke bombs and carrying banners with such slogans as “white Europe of brotherly nations”.

The march organised by far-right groups was one of many events marking Poland’s rebirth as a nation in 1918, overshadowing official state observances and other patriotic events.

Police estimated 60,000 people took part. Many were young men, some with their faces covered or with beer bottles in hand, but families and older Poles also participated.

Those marching chanted “God, honour, country” and “Glory to our heroes”, while a few people also shouted xenophobic phrases like “pure Poland, white Poland” and “refugees get out”.

Some participants marched under the slogan “We Want God”, words from an old Polish religious song that the US president, Donald Trump, quoted during a visit to Warsaw earlier this year. Speakers spoke of standing against liberals and defending Christian values.

Many carried the national white-and-red flag as others set off flares and firecrackers, filling the air with red smoke. Some also carried banners depicting a falanga, a far-right symbol dating to the 1930s.

The march has become one of the largest such demonstration in Europe and drew far-right leaders from elsewhere in Europe, including Tommy Robinson from Britain and Roberto Fiore from Italy. It also attracted a considerable number of supporters of the governing conservative Law and Justice (PiS) party.

State broadcaster TVP, which reflects the conservative government’s line, called it a “great march of patriots”, and in its broadcasts described the event as one that drew mostly regular Poles expressing their love of Poland, not extremists.

“It was a beautiful sight,” the interior minister, Mariusz Blaszczak, said. “We are proud that so many Poles have decided to take part in a celebration connected to the Independence Day holiday.”

A smaller counter-protest by an anti-fascist movement also took place. Organisers kept the two groups apart to prevent violence. However, there was one incident in which the nationalists pushed and kicked several women who chanted anti-fascism slogans and had a banner saying “Stop Fascism”.

Hope for Europe: Austrians Vote for Youth and for Self-Preservation in Face on Migrant Onslaught

SEBASTIAN KURZ. EXPECTED TO BECOME THE NEW LEADER OF AUSTRIA.

From where we sit here in America, the resolve of Sebastian Kurz to control nonwhite migration looks fantastic. The Jewish Press reports, however, that Euro-Jews congratulate Kurz, but also warn him to avoid the “far right”.

Likewise, The Telegraph associates Kurz with Nazis.

Times of India

VIENNA: “Whizz-kid”, “Basti Fantasti”, “Messiah” are just some of the monikers given to Austrian conservative Sebastian Kurz+ , the world’s youngest leader in waiting.

His People’s Party (OeVP), revamped by the 31-year-old as a more hardline “movement”, was projected to have come first in Sunday’s election with some 31.5 percent of the vote.

“Many people have placed great hopes in our movement,” the fresh-faced wonder boy told a sea of supporters in Vienna on Sunday evening.

“It’s time to establish a new political style… I accept this responsibility with great humility.”

But his possible next move — entering a coalition with the far-right Freedom Party (FPOe) of Heinz-Christian Strache — could see some of his shine removed.

The takeover of the OeVP in May by “Emperor Kurz” was as swift as it was radical.

First he ended the decade-long unhappy coalition with the Social Democrats (SPOe). Then he rebranded the OeVP and its black party colour as a turquoise “movement” tough on migrants and easy on taxes.

The strategy of “putting Austrians first” propelled the sluggish OeVP to pole position in opinion polls and Kurz to near-rock star status.

Wherever he goes, fans sporting turquoise T-shirts chant his name and women ask if they can hug him.

Selfie sessions with Kurz, always in slim-cut suits and tieless white shirts, last over two hours.

Observers say there hasn’t been this much euphoria over an Austrian politician since Joerg Haider, the magnetic but controversial FPOe leader who died in a drink-driving car crash in 2008.

“His phenomenon isn’t all that new and resembles the… expectations placed in Joerg Haider,” journalist Christa Zoechling wrote in current affairs magazine Profil ahead of the ballot.

In slick campaign adverts of him scaling the Alps, Kurz promised — echoing the FPOe — to slash taxes and red tape and “return this beautiful country to the peak”.

“The time is now,” read election posters with Kurz pensively staring into the distance.

“The republic gets a fresh start with Kurz,” jubilant supporter Werner Schwab, 64, told AFP Sunday.

His appeal as an agent of change is remarkable given that he has been a key cog in the political machine he now seeks to overhaul.

The only child of a secretary and a teacher, Kurz joined the OeVP’s youth wing in 2003.

As its chief, he drew ridicule with a 2010 council election campaign featuring the slogan “Schwarz macht geil”, or “Black makes you hot”.

Kurz posed with skimpily clad girls on top of a black Hummer, the so-called “hot-o-mobile”, and distributed black condoms.

This blunder notwithstanding, the former law student enjoyed a meteoric rise, becoming secretary of integration in 2011 and foreign minister two years later, aged just 27.

Full of praise for Hungary’s populist premier Viktor Orban, Kurz claims credit for closing the Balkan migrant trail in 2016.

The move saw the Austrian named one of the most influential Europeans by news website Politico.

The notoriously private politician — he’s seldom seen in public with long-term girlfriend Susanne — ran a campaign as immaculate as his trademark gelled-back hair.

Even his OeVP takeover had apparently been months in the planning, according to a leaked document.

But critics have accused Kurz of being a “mini-dictator” running a “one-man show”.

Some analysts warn that Kurz’s election will be an “earthquake” for the EU, despite his pro-European pledge.

“He’s a ‘Haider light’ version,” said Paris-based Austria expert Patrick Moreau.

Kurz’s ideas on everything from immigration to economic policy represent a “complete rupture” with the EU, Moreau added.

Get ready for the ‘tech alt-right’ to gain power and influence in Silicon Valley

Among the things we’ve learned from the James Damore Google Memo is that Google keeps blacklists of conservatives, making sure they won’t find work in the tech industry. The senior people at Google also engage in “witch hunts” (one of Trump’s favorite expressions).

It doesn’t matter whether you think Damore’s 10 page manifesto war right about women and men. What matters is the fallout that’s predicted to hit tech like a hurricane.

The SJWs game is to destroy people in the name of virtue. Conservatives (cuckservatives) will never play that game. We on the alt-right will. We’re in a war for our survival as a race and as a country. Search and destroy missions need to be added to our toolkit. When presented with an opportunity, SJWs can be demonized, fired, and blacklisted just like conservatives.

Business Insider

The firing of James Damore over his “Google’s Ideological Echo Chamber” memo will empower the tech alt-right.

To understand why, imagine yourself as a Republican working at a big Silicon Valley tech company.

You agree with Damore that some average differences between men and women probably explain some of why such a high proportion of computer programmers are male. You, however, in no way consider yourself sexist.

What Damore’s termination tells you is that many in your field consider people with your beliefs to be unfit to work with. They hold opinions of you similar to those of former senior Google employee Yonatan Zunger, who wrote about Damore, saying:

“Do you understand that at this point, I could not in good conscience assign anyone to work with you? I certainly couldn’t assign any women to deal with this, a good number of the people you might have to work with may simply punch you in the face, and even if there were a group of like-minded individuals I could put you with, nobody would be able to collaborate with them.” (Emphasis mine.)

THE LEFT SAYS PUNCH HIM.

Trump Advisor Stephen Miller DESTROYS CNN’s Jim Acosta at Press Briefing

Verbal conflict arose at a White House briefing today. A CNN reporter, Jim Acosta, was called “ignorant” and “foolish” by Stephen Miller, President Donald Trump’s nationalist adviser and speech writer. Miller, who is Jewish, is the architect of Trump’s plan to cut legal immigration in half.

CNN’s Acosta, whose roots lie outside the U.S. in Cuba, accused President Trump of being a racist for proposing an immigration plan that requires immigrants to speak English.

This is probably the most widely covered story today.

Suddenly, There is Hope for France, and It’s Name is Emmanuel Macron

I haven’t investigated all of the claims about President Macron of France that are stated in the graphic above. However, that last claim can easily be verified. He understands the population problem in Africa and is willing to talk about it when no one else is.

New French President Torched for Saying Africans Have Too Many Children

The media are calling it his first gaffe and social media users are noting that “the honeymoon is over” for French President Emmanuel Macron thanks to some controversial comments he made at the G-20 summit in Hamburg, Germany over the weekend.

When a reporter asked Macron why no Marshall Plan existed for Africa, he said that the challenge of Africa goes beyond reconstruction. It is “totally different and a lot more profound.”

Africa, he said, has a “civilizational” problem and women are having “seven or eight children.”

Social media users were not pleased.

Some pundits, like The Independent contributor Nabila Ramdani, called it outright racism, before pointing to his history of supposedly belittling minority communities.

Macron was torn apart on Twitter and Facebook for his crude racism, but there was generally silence from France’s establishment. This is because imperial attitudes prevail in a country that has by no means altered its condescending approach towards those it subjugated, often with immense barbarism.

Politico attempted to provide some cover for Macron, noting that Twitter is missing the full context of his remarks.

In his three-minute discussion of the topic, Macron laid out the differences between a postwar reconstruction program such as the Marshall plan and modern country-level and regional-specific approaches to development. Macron called for the creation of partnerships as he pointed to challenges like trafficking, corruption, weak states, and the demographic transition.

Macron can read a graph, n’est pas?

President Trump is invited to spend Bastille Day (French independence day), Friday, July 14, in France with Macron. That is a very hopeful sign. If Macron decides to follow nationalist policies, while refusing to acknowledge the leadership of Angela Merkel, then Europe will be a better place.

It’s probably too much to hope that Macron will ethnically cleanse France, but he may make it respectable for someone in the future to do that. Remember, he was expected to be France’s Obama, not France’s Trump.

The Leftist British paper The Guardian has slammed Macron in the last few hours. Let’s hope that some of Trump’s resistance to the press rubs off on Macron.

EMMANUEL MACRON AND FIRST LADY, BRIGITTE.

Young Marion Maréchal-Le Pen ‘to quit politics’ Following Aunt’s Defeat in France’s Presidential Election

MARION IS STANDING DOWN.

BBC

Marion Maréchal-Le Pen, the niece of defeated far-right French presidential candidate Marine Le Pen, is to quit politics, French media report.

Ms Maréchal-Le Pen, 27, who is an MP for the National Front (FN), had been seen by some as a future leader of the party.

She is the granddaughter of FN founder Jean-Marie Le Pen.

She is one of the best known figures in the party and one of only two FN lawmakers in the outgoing parliament.

Analysts say she takes more of a hardline position than her aunt.

According to Le Figaro, Ms Maréchal-Le Pen will announce on Wednesday her intention not to stand for a new term in parliamentary elections in June. She will also quit her position as president of the FN in the south-eastern region of Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur.

It is understood she wishes to spend more time with her young daughter, the newspaper adds.

The party would not confirm the report but senior FN official Bruno Gollnisch told reporters it would not be totally unexpected.

“I think it’s in the works, but I will let her announce it if she wants to,” he said.

Sky News reports that Le Pen’s grandfather, Jean Marie Le Pen, founder of Front National, is critical of his granddaughter’s move.

JEAN MARIE LE PEN.

The younger politician is more conservative on social and economic issues and she took part in rallies against gay marriage laws, while her aunt avoided them.

She said her relative’s decision to soften her stance on seeking to quit the euro had come too late for voters concerned about that part of her programme.

Other differences between the two include their relationship with the party’s founder, Jean-Marie Le Pen.

Ms Le Pen is estranged from her father, while Ms Marechal-Le Pen and him have closer ties.

Speaking to Le Figaro, he called his granddaughter’s move “a desertion”.

He said: “This will create a huge disappointment… Marion represented a hope for the future for many FN voters and activists.”

Political expert Joel Gombin said of her decision: “This raises a lot of questions on how the party will evolve.

“It risks leaving a number of people orphan, and could trigger some fighting among those would like to take over from her at the head of the ultra-conservative faction of the FN.”

AU REVOIR, MARION. WE HARDLY KNEW YE.

French Mayor Fined for Saying 91 Percent Muslim Students “is a problem.”

In France it is illegal to speak the truth. But only if you are a white Christian person. If you’re a Muslim you can say any damn thing you want without fear.

Who knows what will get you arrested in France? Who knows what words are taboo? The chilling effect on free speech, if there is any left in France, is profound when people are arrested for saying the truth.

As in so many other formerly white countries, the government is the enemy of the indigenous white population and should be treated as such.

The Blaze

Robert Ménard, mayor of Béziers in southern France, took note of Muslim children flooding classrooms on the first day of school last September, tweeting that he was watching the “great replacement” happen before his eyes.

BBC News characterized the term as “divisive” and “used to describe the alleged eviction of France’s white Christian population by migrants.”

Ménard didn’t stop there, though.

A few days later during a television appearance, he said that “in a class in the city center of my town, 91% of the children are Muslims. Obviously, this is a problem. There are limits to tolerance,” BBC News reported.

The network said French law “prohibits data based on people’s religious beliefs or ethnicity.”

Menard, 63, apparently didn’t see what the big deal was.

“I just described the situation in my town. It is not a value judgment, it’s a fact,” he said, according to BBC News. “It’s what I can see.”

Seems that wasn’t a sufficient defense, as Ménard — described by the network as “far-right” and an “ally of the anti-immigrant National Front party” — was fined 2,000 euros for inciting hatred over his words. (That’s about $2,200.)

The public prosecutor had asked for a fine of 1,800 euros, saying Ménard “pointed the finger at kids, whom he describes as a weight on the national community,” BBC News reported.

Apart from the fine, the Paris court awarded 1,000 euros in court costs to anti-racist groups that had brought the case, the network said, adding that Ménard insisted he’ll appeal the ruling.

Ménard took heat last spring for reportedly attempting to keep track of the number of Muslim students in classrooms:
