First they came for....


Editor of Brussels Journal under attack

Dr. Paul Belien, the Editor-in-Chief of the excellent Brussels Journal blog, is under legal and media attack in Belgium for supposedly inspiring a skinhead murder spree. Dr. Belien is a journalist and founder of the Center for the New Europe, a free-market think tank. He is hated by the Euroleft… well, you know why: He's articulate, smart, courageous, and able to think straight.

Belien and his wife are also involved with the Flemish Block, a party that seeks secession from Imperial Europe. He is also a member of the distinguished Mont Pelerin Society, founded by Friedrich Hayek in 1947.

Sounds pretty intellectual, right?

Well, here's what happened:

Yesterday (May 12) Hans Van Themsche, an 18 year old high-school student who had just been expelled from boarding school for smoking in the dormitories, went berserk and set out on a bloody rampage in Antwerp. In the morning he shaved his head down to the neck. He put on combat boots and a black leather outfit and went to a store of sporting and hunting gear to buy a rifle. Dressed as a "Goth" he walked through town and shot at three people who crossed his path: a veiled Turkish woman, a two year old Flemish toddler on a tricycle and her black nanny, killing the latter two and seriously wounding the first.


As if that isn't bad enough, the Belgian version of the Screaming Left has decided that Dr. Belien must be responsible.

Managerial socialism cannot deal with people as volitional beings. It can only deal with people as statistical material. If we refuse to protest against the managerial usurpation of our privacies as individuals, then we become increasingly managed by those who rely further on statistical models to further mold and fashion new and improved behaviouralist models of social control. As the sytstem grows its appetite for growth grows. It is a loss of power for the democracy at the gain to the system. Those who favor the system cannot favor the individual at the same time. One cannot manage free individuals. Paul Belien is a free individual. He might not remain so if we do not remain so. That is up to us as free individuals to decide the value of.

A lunatic skin head goes crazy and kills people and it's conservative ideology's fault?

A lunatic rag head goes crazy and kills people and he's just a lunatic. No possible way it could be the murderous and bloody ideology preached in the mosque and koran.

The left is so screwed up. There's no hope for them.

Glad you're back Dag:>)

The Left is on a rampage. Today as well I found that Hirsi Ali is being stripped of her Dutch citizenship. There is an end to it. We are that end.

Dag,
Why is Hirsi Ali being stripped of her Dutch citizenship?

Lots of info on that, Jane, but the short verwsion is that the Dutch government and ruling elites have decided to toss her to the wolves in order to quell at least temporarily the Muslim radicals in the Netherlands who are on a campaign to impose sharia on the nation. The Dutch are literally committing suicide as a nation, a culture, and as an ethnic group. This goes beyond rationality, beyond any ideological stance of stupidity and perverted thinking. What we see in the Netheralnds in the Hirsi Ali case and in the world generally is a shift in population, a bifurcation, a splitting in two that will leave one group victorious and the other as dead and forgotten as the Hittites. I see Hirsi Ali as but one public figure, a light shining, an emblem of what is taking place before our eyes without us having the experience to name it or even to know it: I see the end of Humanity as we have been for 5,000 years and perhaps for most of Human existence. I see the death-trhoes of the primitive world and the emergence of the spaceman.

The Dutch are tossing Hirsi Ali to calm the Muslims in The Netherlands. The worthless excuse is that Hirsi Ali lied on her immigration application form. Good grief, I've done far more than that with a can of hair-spray and a potato. No, then, it's not a matter of lying on the form. Hirsi Ali is payment for no summer rioting among Muslims in The Netherlands.

See also the story on Brussels Journal for more outrage. The time is here, Jane, for the world to become anew. We are part of a great transformation. This is a glorious time for us to live in. Whether we shed our past or our past expels us we are beginning something entirely different, and there is no stopping it now.

Muslims will be demonstrating at the Vancouver Art Gallery on May 27th to remind Canadians that as "immigrants" they must be treated fairly. They are not the only group protesting; actually it is a range of minority groups but Muslims are listed first on the poster. They're copycating the Latino immigrants' demonstrations in the U.S.; they'll be wearing white t-shirts, etc.
These allied groups are not all alike, though, just because they are "immigrants". Latinos are not dragging Sharia Law along with them when they come into Canada, as Muslims are.
At the demo, it will no doubt be mentioned that under Prime Minister Harper there will be an increased emphasis on temporary work visas. Everybody knows, though, that this new policy is being implemented to prevent young Muslim men with terrorist aspirations from making themselves at home.

Now that is some good news for us. Thanks for the h.t., Jane.

We'll see what we can do to dampen the mood at the party.
