Mother Heckles Mayor Khan on Knife Crime at Public Event, ‘We Don’t Feel Safe’

Mother Heckles Mayor Khan on Knife Crime at Public Event, ‘We Don’t Feel Safe’, by Liam Deacon.

London’s Labour Mayor has been shouted down at a public event, with a mother explaining she and her son do not “feel safe” in his city.

Sadiq Khan refused to take responsibility for the massive violent crime wave sweeping London, once again blaming the Conservatives and calling the Government “anti-London”.

The crowd did not accept his excuses and the Mayor was “booed by the audience as he finish[ed] his speech” as the people were “very angry at the level of crime in London”, LBC editor Theo Usherwood reported.

“There are no bobbies on our street, Londoners don’t feel safe, our communities don’t feel safe,” the unidentified woman shouted at the LBC State of London event, to loud cheers from the crowd.

She added: “You give me statistics Mr Khan, but for me as a parent, I’m telling you, we do not feel safe. We do not feel safe in London and we want you to do something about it!”

Don’t let the long arm of China reach to our critical infrastructure

Don’t let the long arm of China reach to our critical infrastructure, by Peter Jennings.

Who thinks it would be a good idea to hand over our next mobile communications network to a company with intimate connections to the Chinese Communist Party and the People’s Liberation Army, and which is obliged under Chinese law to support Beijing’s intelligence-gathering activities?

Second question: who thinks it would be a smart idea to allow a Hong Kong company to dominate electricity and gas distribution in Victoria and South Australia, gas transmission and distribution in Queensland and the Northern Territory, and critical gas transmission assets in Western Australia and NSW?

It says nothing positive about Canberra’s approach to national security that these developments are regarded in some circles as serious possibilities to take over critical infrastructure essential to how we function. …

Canberra should move quickly to block Huawei’s access to 5G and CKI’s access to APA’s gas and electricity business. This is the necessary price of maintaining national security interests in the face of an increasingly predatory China looking to maximise its own strategic interests at the expense of all others.

Two Kinds Of Barbarians

Two Kinds Of Barbarians, by Rod Dreher.

If you have a serious interest in politics, you should be reading columnist Thomas Edsall in The New York Times. He’s a liberal, but he’s much more interested in deep data analysis than in making ideological points. In his most recent column, he writes about research findings showing that liberals who are quick to call whites racist actually drive them into Trump’s arms. …

To the overwhelming majority of liberals, wanting to limit immigration to preserve the cultural status quo is an act of evil. As racism, along with homophobia, is one of the sins that call out to liberal heaven to be avenged, well, no wonder Democratic candidates are now calling for the abolition of ICE, and open borders (either openly or cagily). …

Diversity training:

Every single diversity session training I’ve ever had to attend as an employee made me angry, because the political biases masquerading as virtue were as plain as day. To object to anything the instructors claimed was to out oneself as a bigot. It was coercion — though I can easily imagine the instructors, and the company management that hired them, saw no political content at all.

We just want our employees not to be bigots, is all. OK, fine — but what counts as bigotry? That’s the neuralgic point.

I came out of those sessions not more bigoted (at least I hope not), but even more skeptical of the concept of “diversity,” seeing in it a program designed to marginalize and demonize people like me, and our interests.

Why the left cannot process this graph:

Population 1950-2010 Africa, ME, Europe

The professor, who teaches geopolitics in a university, simply mentioned that managing the massive migration efforts out of sub-Saharan Africa (this, given the skyrocketing birthrate, and lack of economic development) is going to be the chief challenge of Europe in this century.

European elites — political, academic, ecclesial, etc. — have not wanted to deal with this. The information in the Edsall column indicates why: because they are terrified of sounding and being racist. They believe that defending the integrity of their own cultures, and the ways of their own people, is somehow immoral. We can see that our own liberals view it the same way. The European elites are, therefore, conceptually defenseless against the migrant invasion. One imagines that Europeans, with their militaries, have the means to stop the inflow, but they lack the will.

Stupid, stupid, must be replaced. Under their rule, a new dark age beckons:

It is perfectly just to refer to what’s happening in Europe as “barbarian invasions,” with reference to the massive, civilization-changing influx of the Germanic tribes across the frontiers of the Roman empire. “Barbarian” was the word the Greeks used for peoples unlike themselves, bearers of different (and, to the Greeks, more primitive and therefore inferior) civilizations — or rather, those who had culture, but no civilization. The Germanic tribes were not Romanized, but they wanted to live within Rome’s ambit. The Empire in the West lost the ability to defend its borders … and eventually collapsed. That was the end of Rome.

The cultural point remains: the more people from alien cultures you have moving into your own, the more fragile and vulnerable your own culture becomes, especially if it is held with less force than the aliens hold their own. A Europe that is dominated by resident Africans is not Europe, any more than a Japan dominated resident Europeans is Japan, or a Ghana dominated by American migrants would be Ghana, or a Rome dominated by Germanic tribes is Rome. This is something very difficult for Americans to grasp, given that our own culture is so plastic and commercialized. You can’t spend any time in Europe, though, and fail to grasp this point. …

Is it racist to want to preserve your own culture and civilization? Yes, according to most liberals, per the Kauffman study. …

If the price of being progressive, or even virtuous in the judgment of progressives, is to hate your own fathers, your mothers, and your civilization, well, to hell with progressive virtue. …

African migrants to Europe, as well as migrants from elsewhere, are “barbarians” in the sense that they are bearers of profoundly different, alien cultures that are often antagonistic to European norms — and if they move into Europe in sufficient numbers, they will overwhelm traditional European cultures. This cannot be denied. Liberalism cannot stop this, in part because it can’t even admit that it’s happening.

Leftists choose not to distinguish between expressions of white racism and expressions of white self-interest. Sure, in the short term they harvest immigrant votes for a leftist welfare state, and they get to rub their opponents noses in diversity. But the long term is appalling — where in sub-Saharan Africa is there a civilization you would want to live in?

North-African migrant stabs Belgian boy to death for protecting a waitress

North-African migrant stabs Belgian boy to death for protecting a waitress, by Abdelhamid Kaddour.

Ahmed S was drunk and harassing a waitress in a bar near Capucins street and the Leopold Place. He was asked by the waitress to leave the place. At this point he caught the attention of a the young Jean-François, a 19 year old Belgian native.

The migrant, who arrived in Belgium only a year ago, switched his attention to the young man who was trying to protect the waitress and asked the young Belgian to buy him a drink.

Jean-François refused. As both men walked out of the place and headed to the train station, the migrant stabbed the 19 year old multiple times and sliced his throat.

The victim was quickly cared for by the rescue services but despite all their efforts, he died a few hours later in the hospital.

The suspect was arrested and judged Thursday morning. Judges and police in charge of the case are particularly shocked by the murder’s simplistic motive.

Diversity and different cultural norms. Are you ready?
