Migrants Committing Disproportionately High Crime In Germany While Media And Govt Focus on ‘Far Right’ Thought Crimes

Migrants Committing Disproportionately High Crime In Germany While Media And Govt Focus on ‘Far Right’ Thought Crimes, by Raheem Kassam And Chris Tomlinson.

Foreign nationals …[are]… 11 or 12 per cent of the total population of Germany … Illegal immigrants and asylum seekers account for around 2.5 per cent of Germany’s population…

Amongst total offences, non-Germans accounted for 27.6 percent while illegal immigrants and asylum seekers accounted for 5.7 percent. Of homicides, the figures are 29.3%/8.2%, and of sexual assaults, the figures were 20.5%/4.8%. …

‘We will multiply our descendants’ Turkey PM says NO Muslim should use birth control

‘We will multiply our descendants’ Turkey PM says NO Muslim should use birth control, by Selina Sykes.

In a stunning speech broadcast live on television, [Trurkish President] Mr Erdogan also said women cannot be treated as equal to men.

The devout Muslim said women should have at least three children.

He said: “We will multiply our descendants. They talk about population planning, birth control. No Muslim family can have such an approach. …

Despite a decline, Turkey’s fertility rate is one of the highest in Europe and the population is just under 80 million.

Muslims openly talk about conquest by the womb, but our PC numbskulls choose not to understand.

Nor are western feminists protesting this outrageous blasphemy — “women cannot be treated as equal to men”. Imagine their outrage if George Bush, Tony Abbott, or Donald Trump had said this.

Demography is destiny, and Turkish citizens are about to be allowed to move anywhere in the EU. It’s all very exciting for the progressives.

See 12 million Turks say they’ll come to the UK once EU deal is signed.

UPDATE: Asylum seekers ‘sexually assaulted 18 women at free concert in Germany’. Like Cologne.

All the complainants claimed they were “surrounded” by their tormentors before being “touched and fondled” improperly at the annual free Schlossgrabenfest music festival over the weekend.

The Political Roots of the Safe Schools Program

The Political Roots of the Safe Schools Program, by Mark Latham.

Having lost the battle for economic and foreign policy in the 1980s, Neo-Marxists embarked on a long march through the institutions of the public sector, especially universities and schools. …

Even though Australian students are falling down the international league tables in maths, science and English, teachers are devoting class-time to the mechanics of breast-binding and penis-tucking. …

Welsh academic Christine Weedon, in her book Feminist Practice and Poststructuralist Theory, is apparently the academic scribbler behind this latest PC nonsense, the intellectual inspiration for the Safe Schools program.

She thinks that from our first moments alive, we are brainwashed into accepting the social order around us.

Governments, schools, churches, the media, popular culture and even fashion trends combine to reinforce the “power relations” and dominance of capitalism.

The things we know from observing nature and studying science are dismissed as “biological determinism”. So too notions of truth, commonsense and life-experience are disparaged as “historical constructs” — delivering “false consciousness” and tricking people into a misunderstanding of their best interests.

So having dismissed science, economics, and the Enlightenment, what does Weedon divine?

Individuals are said to be “sexual beings from birth”, reflected in the “initial bisexuality of the child”. …

“For young girls, the acquisition of femininity involves a recognition that they are already castrated like their mother”, forcing them to submit to patriarchy, or male dominance. No one is immune from the process of false gender identity.

Whew. Just as well Weedon and the neo-Marxists are setting our children straight. Oops, “straight” might not be the correct word.

It’s the new political correctness, comrade:

Education has been relatively free from ideological indoctrination. But this is not the view of the new curriculum designers, with Ollis depicting schools as “in a unique position to educate for social change”.

Weedon also said she wants to engineer an androgynous “ungendered” society through classroom tutoring. The other key Leftist battleground is for the control of language. …

This is why Safe Schools seeks to eradicate the use of terms like “his and her” and “boys and girls”. It believes genderless language will produce a genderless generation of young Australians, self-selecting their sexuality as a fluid identity.

Political correctness is not an accident, a random form of censorship. It’s a carefully targeted campaign designed to outlaw the language of observable facts in the discussion of race, gender and sexuality.

Mark Latham knew Gough Whitlam quite well.

Gough Whitlam must be turning in his grave. The Great Man dedicated his life to the principles of the Age of Enlightenment: that rational, evidence-based argument could create a better and fairer society. Not only is the post-structuralist agenda anti-reason, anti-science and anti-family, it is also anti-education. …

Australia’s political leaders are sleepwalking into an educational disaster.

The Three-way War Between Modernity, Post-Modernity, and Islam

The Three-way War Between Modernity, Post-Modernity, and Islam, by Charles Hill. We are in a worldwide, three-way, cultural war between:

  • Modernity — The Enlightenment, universal human rights, open trade, open expression, consent of the governed, an international system of states with restraints on the worst horrors of war, a determination that religions should not be inserted into political, military, and diplomatic world affairs, the doctrine of “the equality of states,” etc.
  • Post-modernism/PC — The EU is a new form of trans-national entity that eschews war, abolishes sovereign borders, exalts diplomacy, and supersedes the Westphalian system (the idea that countries do not interfere in each other’s domestic affairs). The EU has a new flag bearing no hint of national identity and a new currency depicting unidentifiable architecture of no discernible origin. It avoids any reference to Europe’s Christian heritage.
  • Islam — A meme designed to conquer the world, from seventh century Arabia. An implacable adversary of modernity and post-modernity. It cannot change, fundamentally, because the Qur’an is the unchallengeable word of God, dictated to Mohammed by the archangel Gabriel and not open to later re-interpretation.

The main battleground is Europe.

If Europe is where the siege is to take place, the drawbridge already is up:

  • Islamism abhors the state; the EU has emasculated it.
  • Islamism recognizes only one border: between itself and regions yet to become Muslim; Europe has opened its borders to the point of abolishing the concept altogether.
  • Islamism regards democracy as un-Islamic because it enacts laws other than Sharia; the EU from its inception has acted assiduously to prevent people from governing themselves democratically.
  • Islamists, like Machiavelli, know that armed prophets are victorious and unarmed prophets are destroyed; the EU has deliberately diminished its capacities to defend itself or to back its diplomacy with strength.
  • And while Islamists declare religion to be the answer the EU has seen religion as the problem. As Pierre Manent has pointed out, had Europeans maintained their identity as sovereign states with a Christian heritage, the assimilation of Muslims could have been possible on the basis of comity whereas now it lacks an answer to “assimilation to what?”

Americans need to understand that the Modern Age with its pluralistic structures, societies, and beliefs is under assault and that the enemies of modernity are … unwilling to accept others on an equal basis.

The postmodern PC crew are so focused on defeating modernity (basically the native western populations) that they are willfully blind to their greater enemy, Islam, and indeed assist it (the enemy of our enemy…).

Islam, of course, has no respect for political correctness and postmodernism, and detests it. However Islam respects modernity, having been dominated and beaten by modernism for hundreds of years. Seeing post-modernism emerge as a real threat to modernism, Islam can hardly believe its luck and has been quick to exploit post-modernism.

Pope Francis might jettison idea of a ‘just war’

Pope Francis might jettison idea of a ‘just war’, by Maria Stephan.

Developed in the fifth century A.D. by St. Augustine, the doctrine of a “just war” empowers rulers to wage war only as a last resort to confront grave wrongs. As Augustine wrote: “Peace should be the object of your desire; war should be waged only as a necessity.”

Later, the Summa Theologica, written by St. Thomas Aquinas in the 1260s and 1270s, clarified that war could only be waged by a properly instituted authority like the state, that it could not occur for purposes of self-gain, and that attaining peace must be its central aim. …

But it seems that Pope Francis – who is by all accounts a progressive thinker, unafraid to challenge old Church doctrines – might welcome a debate over the church’s foundational tenets on war and peace. “Faith and violence are incompatible,” he repeated in a 2013 mass prayer gathering at the Vatican. … In his letter to a recent Rome conference, he exhorted participants to revitalize the tools of “active nonviolence.” It was a call, in other words, to challenge the idea of “just war” and to propose an alternative paradigm.

Robert Spencer scathingly applies realism to dispel the Pope’s PC nonsense:

That would remove one of the West’s key philosophical foundations and leave Catholics no alternative but to surrender to the advancing jihad. But with the monuments of Catholic Europe in ruins and the Church subjugated and enslaved, as the jihadi’s blade slices through his neck, Pope Francis can congratulate himself that he was never, ever “Islamophobic,” and that he and his bishops made sure that those within their purview who spoke honestly about the jihad threat were duly silenced.

The Pope has forgotten, if he ever knew, that (as Winston Churchill put it) “we sleep safely at night because rough men stand ready to visit violence on those who would harm us.”

German Protestant bishop wants Islam classes in all state schools

German Protestant bishop wants Islam classes in all state schools. Reuters reports that “The head of the Protestant Church in Germany has called for Islam to be taught in state schools across the country as a way to make young Muslims impervious to the ‘temptation of fundamentalists.’” Robert Spencer:

He suggests this because he assumes that Islam is a religion of peace that has been hijacked by a tiny minority of extremists. In reality, however, if Islam is taught in state schools, Germany will find itself confronted with more jihad, not less. But by the time they figure out why it is happening, it will probably be too late.

Believing politically correct ideas is dangerous because they are founded on falsehoods.

Top Gear relaunch fails to wow critics

Top Gear relaunch fails to wow critics, by

The relaunch of Top Gear, with its all new presenting team, had been eagerly anticipated for months.

With Chris Evans and former Friends actor Matt LeBlanc at the helm, viewers were keen to see how they fared compared to the previous trio of presenters.

And so too were the TV critics. Although none appeared to be overwhelmed by the new show, it did not attract a lot of criticism either.

The Daily Telegraph said that while the new presenters had “sharp things” to say about the vehicles, “the show’s trademark flights of savagely funny sarcasm were as thin on the ground as edible grub in service stations”.

The Sun review was a little more critical, saying: “If you hadn’t seen the old version, BBC2 would have a perfectly serviceable new motoring show on their hands. But we have seen this done before and better.

The reason Jeremy Clarkson’s Top Gear was so popular has little to do with cars. It was simply that the presenters were politically incorrect, sarcastic, and scrapped with each other in a manly way. You hardly ever see that any more.

The original line up had it all: a non-PC grumpy funny old guy, a nerd, and a young (originally) trendy.

‘Dilbert’ Creator Scott Adams to Bill Maher: Donald Trump Will Win Election In A Landslide

‘Dilbert’ Creator Scott Adams to Bill Maher: Donald Trump Will Win Election In A Landslide. Bill Maher is openly a PC leftie, but nonetheless this is interesting.

Scott Adams:

I’ve been studying persuasion for decades and when I saw Trump last summer displaying the tools of persuasion I thought, ‘Oh my God, he’s not a crazy clown. Everything he’s doing, including his complete ignoring of the facts, is persuasion perfection. I called him to be the landslide winner in the general election last year.

Essentially he’s basically bringing a flamethrower to a stick fight. There’s nobody using the same tools that he’s using. So his complete ignoring of facts are actually part of the persuasion because he doesn’t give you targets. He doesn’t give you details of his policies, usually. So he’s reducing the number of targets while making you feel good and focusing on the things he wants. So it’s not about facts, it’s about focus and attention.

SHOWDOWN: EU Vows To Use New Powers To Block All Elected ‘Far Right’ Populists From Power

SHOWDOWN: EU Vows To Use New Powers To Block All Elected ‘Far Right’ Populists From Power, by Liam Deacon.

The President of the unelected executive arm of the European Union (EU) has vowed to block all right wing populists from power across the continent, shortly after acquiring the power to exert “far-reaching sanctions” on elected governments.

Jean-Claude Juncker, the president of the European Commission, promised to exclude Norbert Hofer, the leader of Austria’s Freedom Party (FPÖ), from all EU decision-making if elected ahead of yesterday’s presidential vote.

Hofer was narrowly beaten. How many Austrians voted against him because he and thus Austria would have been excluded from these decisions? This is clearly meddling in the internal affairs of a country.

The [European] Commission can now trigger a “rule of law mechanism” (Article 7 TEU) against nations it perceives as deviating from “the common constitutional traditions of all Member States.” Ultimately, “far-reaching sanctions” can be exerted, and a country can be stripped of all voting rights in the EU and have funding blocked.

PC is becoming ever stronger, more brazen, and more extreme. Throughout the western world. Increasingly, the politics of different Western nations are interacting— witness all the meddling of one country’s leaders in the domestic politics of other nations, such as Obama weighing in on Brexit, or this arrogant declaration by the EU that it will ignore democratically elected European governments if they aren’t socially and ideologically like them.

The US election is essentially about political correctness. Trump’s main policy is to oppose political correctness, while Clinton is the corrupt queen of PC. The establishment in nearly every western country has been almost entirely captured by the PC, so the battle of PC vs. non-PC looks like establishment versus outsiders.

The Australian election is so boring because both main contenders are PC — there is nothing much at stake, no prospect of real change.

As we detail here on the Wentworth Report, PC policies are causing immense harm to the native populations of the West, particularly on immigration, Islam, sex, marriage, families, banking, debt and the concentration of wealth, and global warming. The West will be weakened fundamentally and permanently if these PC policies are allowed to continue for a few more years. The need to kick out the politically correct from power has became urgent if we are to preserve the features of our societies that made the so successful.

A lot of trends are coming to a head simultaneously — immigration and Islam are real threats now, the world’s debt load is going to break from stagnation into either depression or significant inflation, and global cooling is about to give the lie to the power grab via climate. The next decade will be interesting.
