When People Can Not Process What They Are Reading.

Standard

Years ago I remember taking offence to a Serj Tankian song called “The Unthinking Majority” I thought of the title as extremely arrogant and felt it was disappointing that a political artist, or at least an artist with politically motivated work, would express himself in such a way.

I took offence to how The Chimp Paradox. was presented as well as I don’t think of it as a good idea to address the masses like they are mongrels.

I don’t talk to people like they are s-t-u-p-i-d, I have no interest in saying “those people over there.” I’m part of this world just like everyone else, I’m not above the law, I will fail, I will be wrong and just because I’m right about certain things doesn’t mean that I will be right about others. (Depending on how you define what is right or wrong). We are all hiding behind statistics funny enough and drag out surveys like a final piece of evidence. Yet statistics can be misleading, which is why every side has “evidence” to back up whatever claim they might have. Yet once you de-bunk the collection of data, it might not seem as straightforward after all…  someone disagreeing with you politically doesn’t give you the right to dismiss them as unintelligible, unless it has  been clearly debunked time and time again that what they support is inefficient and false. Meaning: that “truth” has been consistently buried and banned on their part so that their “ideology” can prevail well-guarded from justified scrutiny.

” If I disagree with you, you have to be retarded…” is not a particularly well thought out argument. The same goes for name-calling. If you want to pull the “you are an idiot card” you truly need to have a substantial amount of hard evidence, just as if you are going to pull the “you are insane argument.”

Yesterday my brother and I had a very long and interesting conversation as he is currently reading a lot about genes & IQ. This is of course a very controversial topic as the current orthodoxy is that there is only equality. We spoke and agreed about the grandeur of a meritocracy, discussing how evidence shows that the general IQ at universities have increased since “future leaders” are recruited from all aspects of our societies. The general “intelligence” has therefore gone up since education isn’t only reserved for the children of the wealthy. Yet….the dark side of the moon are quotas enforced when politicians decide that they want to lift the “entire population” or 50% of the population up. As amiable as this may sound like it is simply not do-able.

The result will be a collection of educated people, with official papers for jobs that they cannot really do. This might seem un-fair, but it is actually true. (feel free to read up on all of this, there’s lots of information.)

As horrid as it might be, 50% of the population will not be geniuses. If you drown people with knowledge this will not change as their brains just cannot process the information. This is of course very depressing if you fundamentally believe in “giving everyone a fair chance” by raising the population up, stretching towards national greatness. I take it that this is why those who “headhunt” for the best have to look internationally, to poach “the best people” for their projects.

Yet among the best you also have some cases of those who over think to such an extent that they almost think themselves into idiocy. That’s when  degenerate social constructs are presented to the world, as it might make sense logically if you disregard the human factor or if your brilliance is restricted to one field. There are also those who use elaborate sentences, spending an enormous amount of time on research only to be biased or completely off the hook in terms of their conclusions. The mind is a tricky beast.

Different groups of people have different trait frequencies. There is a plethora of information regarding this. I’m currently reading articles that would certainly come across as “controversial” to all of those who subscribe to the notion that ” we are all created equal.” That said, just because we are “all created differently” doesn’t mean that civil liberties should only be reserved for a small group. I suspect that the furore against “admitting that genuine diversity exists” reminiscent of mass hysteria happens, because people don’t want the idea of “this group being better than that group” gaining ground once again. My point is that “supremacy” or feelings of superiority will emerge regardless, as people will always “find something” to make them “stand out,” even if it is not “legitimate.”

Whether it is a financial situation making someone feel superior to those who are destitute or whether destitution raises ones victim status to such heights as to make someone morally superior. Grievances can be perceived as legitimate and worthy of punishment by the state directed towards those guilty of wealth. The rich person might feel superior but the poor will too, as their struggle makes them superior morally speaking. Rich = mean, poor = good. In terms of appearance it is “all about personality” since slim and/or pretty = mean while fat and/or ugly = nice. A person who looks good and uses this as an asset might feel that this is the “ace up their sleeve,” but just as this can create a sense of “I’m better than you” the traditionally unattractive can relish in their misery by again being seen as the “victim” or “challenging traditional standards of beauty.” Someone who is good at school/academics and/or good in any other field such as sports, music, business you name it, will feel that this is their “ace” whereas those who aren’t good at anything at all can take pride in being morally virtuous since they are unambitious. They are nice because they will not make anyone else “feel bad” by beating them in a competitive sense.

Being honest about “diversity” is not the same as treating people horribly. It means being honest and aware of the challenges a nation faces, both internally and internationally. How can one create the best school system for example if people are in denial? Maybe it is a good idea to focus more on practical training than merely theory designed for the brainy? Maybe a division at an earlier age would be an idea, so that those who hate reading could thrive by learning “how to be handy?” Maybe segregating the genders, so that boys can be approached like boys without being reprimanded for not being like the girls could benefit boys who are falling behind in the effeminate education system?  What will result from such a religious devotion to modern orthodoxies as we have today is the firing of any academics who dare to uphold “the truth,” which brings to mind the popular representation of “the dark ages.”

It seems like our enlightenment has gradually brought us closer to darkness since any truths violating the  “feelings” of a group, regardless of how marginal the group is, are discarded or left in obscurity. Writing about democracy, in fact mentioning and addressing in-depth any of the issues mentioned above could result in volumes upon volumes of material, which is what we supposedly have academics for. They are not there to be fired if their findings collide with the “values” of our modern “dictatorship of goodness,” it is their job to find the truth or to seek to find the truth through empirical evidence.

To demonstrate how frustrating it is with people who cannot process information that isn’t even particularly complex, I’ve included a series of screen shots below. This is how democracy looks like in practice, this is why it is easy for critical thinkers, obsessed with “truth” to fall into the unforgiving, melancholic, grip of misanthropy.

On Friday, the 24th of March 2017, these three individuals were trending on FB…

Trending on FB

Katie Hopkins was making waves online due to her commentary about the terrorist attack in Westminster. People were raging because she had the audacity to suggest that England has a cultural problem and that the UK is weak in spirit. Her commentary pretty much addressed what I had been addressing in one of my own blog entries, so I was of course puzzled by the negative reactions she experienced as what she had written seemed spot on. (Unless one chooses to be in denial). While I was scrolling around the timeline connected with the “Hopkins topic” I came across a guy in the USA. I agreed with his entry and shared it on my personal FB.

Online Democracy 1

What followed was a public online argument where the guy who had authored what you see above had to defend himself from people who clearly didn’t understand his original post at all. It is not hard to comprehend what he is saying. An interesting thing to note is that he didn’t know that his post was set to “public….”

Online Democracy 2

Obviously I’m trying to protect the identity of these people, as one does…You can see that one individual agrees, then one is clearly disgruntled about Hopkins, someone else agrees, but then enters a very typical argument: “rather __________, than racist.” This is a slogan that has been advocated by Swedish Feminists in particular.

Racist Clear.

What you see next is a very typical argument…”the guy was British.” Well…to be fair no he was not…This was a muslim man of foreign descent, who happened to have a British passport and citizenship…in this day and age that is not really the same as being from that particular nation. A woman of absolute muslim descent, walking around in full traditional, muslim dress, is not Norwegian just because she happens to have a Norwegian passport. She is a citizen yes, and is lucky to live in a western country, where you can enjoy the full benefit of citizenship regardless of where you originally come from. The lady (note how these individuals are women) clearly does not understand the argument from the American man. Her conclusion is that he is “racist clear” whatever that may mean…..

Enters a proper Racist.

Then enters a proper Racist. This clearly illustrates what I’ve been addressing on my blog in so many of my entries. The guy who initially started this discussion has up to this point engaged in arguments protecting himself from the false accusation that he is racist, then enters a real racist, who generalizes and is completely unapologetic in his views. An argument then ensues between the “accused-non-racist” and the “I’m-proud-to-be-racist-racist.” The leftists have succeeded in destroying the meaning of the word “racist” just as they’ve dismantled the word “hate” as used in “hate speech.” False accusations of people being “brown shirts” have taken away the severity of “you are a Nazi” since everyone who at this point questions the left in any way is labeled “literally Hitler.” The unavoidable result is that people will just get nauseated whenever the WW2 argument is brought up, and not for the “right” reasons…..people might even start saying “yeah…what did we really fight for? Maybe the Nazis should have won?” these type of sentiments will probably become more widespread as a result of the left’s way of arguing, rather than an explosion of pro-Nazi sentiments. In other words, if you poke someone long enough they’ll get sick and tired of your bullshit.

Exit Nazi & Permission to share posts

A certain somebody asks for permission to use this discussion in a blog entry….the racist from the previous frame, admits that he is proud to be what he is.

Enters random guy.

Another character enters claiming the “he was British argument” before the classical “IRA argument” is brought up. In fact this whole thread illustrates all the common narratives in the current political climate. Note how the “new arrival” in this thread uses the “fake news” narrative. The American who accidentally ended up in a public discussion, that ended up highlighting all of his points due to the contribution by those who are hating on him, is becoming tired….as can be understood by his posting below…

the IRA argument

Argument continues

The American who started the thread tries to conclude the discussion, at this point he also adds one of his comments in the thread into his original post, in order for people to see where he is coming from. The lady with the “IRA argument” clearly can not let it go, so another discussion then ensues with an evidently tired American, baffled by the inability to process basic information displayed by those attacking him….

Arguing Online.jpg

The thread, as it looked like at that point, ends with this:

Conclusion

This discussion alone prove the points I addressed above. It would have been one thing if these screenshots were my only evidence…..but no…hold on… I got more……

The argument below is more sophisticated in nature due to how the participants express themselves. Regardless of this the topic is the same; I’m calling this sequence ” The Oxford Argument.”

OA1

The post attracted one individual who decided to express his dissent….this was counter-attacked by a guy who was clearly interested in commencing a discussion.

OA5

” I read that paragraph but I just hear racism.” Again that same old card is used in an incorrect manner. Also note how these individuals perceive Muslims as the victims and any precautions on the part of “the west” as unjustified racism. The argument is made from “the dissenter” that concerns about Muslim supremacists are justified, especially when seen from a historical perspective. This of course clashes with the current orthodoxy or the false enlightenment claim, that all men are created equal. By admitting that there is an enemy you are merely engaging in discrimination. Even when “the dissenter” specified “NOT ALL muslims” it was still concluded that he was a racist and “good riddance.”

My last example before I conclude my entry stems from my very own Twitter. Yes you’ve read that right. I launched this blog a couple of years ago at the request of my fans, not really knowing what my blog would be about.  I’m not a “pink blogger” I like to read, and enjoy to think, discuss and write about what I’ve read. I’m a virtuoso musician and would classify myself as pretty geeky. My blog entries where I’ve written about personal matters have proven very popular and overall I’ve certainly seen that people adore entertainment while abhorring intellectual discussions. I’ve shared my blog entries on my Twitter and in my entries I usually provide people with links to the articles and/or YouTube videos that inspired me to write that specific blog entry, so that people can see my “sources.”

This year I received a request to do an interview about my entries for the very first time. I was asked about the content on my blog regarding Islamism mainly, since it seemed like the interviewer was obsessed with ‘the terror threat.” I replied to the best of my ability and said among other things this:

“It’s obvious that there are some who are just born with a “complaining gene.” We are spoilt in our part of the world. I don’t think there’s ever been a point in history where people had it better. There is healthcare for everyone, there is so much food that the poor are obese, everyone has access to some sort of education, pollution levels are much better than they were under the industrial revolution for example, you will not be imprisoned or chemically castrated just because of your sexual orientation, women can get an education, work their way up into the system. You can come from a minority background and become the leader of a nation or go into important government positions in a country that you weren’t even born in. We’ve come as close as we can get to Utopia and should just be happy, but no. Then you get people complaining about trans-gender bath room issues, micro-aggressions, sexist snow-removal and pronouns. There is no end to the stupidity. I believe in equality when it comes to the starting point and opportunity, but it has now been brought to my attention that those who talk about egalitarianism usually advocate equality when it comes to outcome. Which doesn’t make any sense to me.”

I also said this:

“Yes, there are plenty of disturbing videos of this, I’ve posted some of them on my blog. You got angry young Muslim men shouting and then you got angry young white men shouting. Looks like a mess, especially if tensions escalate.”

Then you got this:

“I assume that the majority are afraid, because people like to conform and don’t want to be ostracised. They see what happens to those conservatives and classical liberals who speak out and decide to stay quiet, whereas those who shout the loudest are those who hate immigration because they actually are real racists and real nazis.”

…and this:

“What it is that we want immigrants to “integrate into” for example is a question nobody is asking. We keep on mentioning vague values, that apparently are “our shared values,” but it can easily seem that we don’t really have a cultural identity anymore. It is not strange that foreigners should be horrified at the fractured families of the West or the unintelligible mainstream entertainment we have that produce nothing but icons of degeneracy and vulgarity. High culture of beauty and excellence is something we have sacrificed on the altar of modernity. Spirituality and faith has been crushed and is routinely mocked. Masculinity is actively worked against in the school system. It is understandable that people would be reluctant to “integrate” into this. Let’s not forget that. After all, why should anyone respect a culture that doesn’t even respect itself?”

If you read through these segments you will understand that this is not a racist talking, but someone who is concerned, especially if you read the whole interview. What I say is critical of militant Islam and the effects of “the change” that has been imposed on Europe. When asked about: “What about Islamism in Scandinavia? Have you been back to Norway recently? What do you see happening there?” I replied in an honest way; describing a country where immigration has become stricter but where certain specific changes were observed by me during some visits back home:

“1-Norway has changed to such an extent that my father and I were the only white people at a supermarket up in the mountains, deep into the fjord land.
2-I’ve had elevator rides where I was the only white person and the only woman not wearing a burqa.
3-I’m not even Norwegian anymore, I’m an ethnic-Norwegian apparently.
4- I visited my grandmother some years back and there was a terror warning on the news “today the terror alert has been raised to severe.” That, in particular is ridiculous. Why are we supposed to accept this as a new reality?”

First of all it is important to specify that Norway is not America. If you live in the USA and you get surprised by encountering an Afro-American or a Native-American, well then you got issues. America has always been a diverse “nation,” there was diversity among the caucasian population, there was diversity due to slavery and the “original population.” Norway is not America. We got Norwegians and then we got Samis, who are nomads living up in the North, moving around between Northern countries with their reindeer, etc; It is just and right to question the changes that have been imposed on Scandinavia, as these are neither natural nor justifiable IF they result in demographic displacement or gradual demographic replacement. It is racist, to support this type of activity and the fact that these type of measures are supported and initiated by ethnic Europeans is nothing but extraordinary. (Obviously I have to specify that there is a major difference between some immigrants here and there, and demographic displacement/replacement. I hope that people can comprehend that….) It cannot be justified in any way, that English people should all of a sudden find themselves becoming minorities in certain parts of their country, nor can it be justified that there are “no-go-zones” in Sweden, but an interesting thing to note, and this is important, is that I highlight that the worst of these changes is the terror threat, that we are supposed to treat as “normal.” 

So far so good, one should hope, but no. Even though it should be ridiculously easy to follow what I’m writing above, I received this tweet after the release of the interview:

evil CIC 2

Curious I decided to check out this individual and saw this:

CIC evil1

First of all I said in the interview that I don’t live in Norway anymore. I also said that “my father and I were the only white people at a supermarket up in the mountains, deep into the fjord land.” This describes a supermarket. I also describe being in an elevator as the only woman not wearing a burqa. I’m clearly describing a country undergoing radical fundamental changes. But I’m not describing an entire town, and seen from a European perspective it all makes sense, if you’ve followed what I wrote above. In the interview I can be quoted as saying ” I’m not even Norwegian anymore, I’m an ethnic-Norwegian apparently.” Again this goes to demonstrate a “core change” within a Nation. I’m not even Norwegian anymore.” So you see a change of word-use in terms of how an ethnic group is being addressed and labeled. This is not minor. Obviously this is not hillbilly talk, as a hillbilly would probably behave like this:

Enters a proper Racist.

Some months later I received another Tweet from a different individual as a response to a blog entry I had published on January the 30th, 2017.

twitter argument.jpg

These are some quotes from the blog entry that he was referring to:

“We need to make sure that we advance into the future “with baby steps” so that we can successfully integrate the new-Europeans into the fabric of our societies, without losing ourselves.”

We are reaching a tipping point & the only sensible course of action would be to do everything in our power to prevent escalated chaos within our continent.”

“….then why not keep those who like it here & have integrated well, while sending out those who do not?”

“If “refugees” thrive at the expense of the original European population, it will create anger and resentment within the ethnic populace and rather than directing this anger towards government figures, we run the risk of this sentiment being directed towards innocent muslims.”

These things are clearly not written by someone who hates ALL Muslims. This is obviously written by someone who is concerned about EVERYONE. And someone who is critical towards Militant Islam. No wonder that people give up, when those who are “moderates” or tempered in their assessment, are accused of being “racist.” I did the dumbest thing and decided to engage with this man in a short Twitter argument as I obviously assume that my fellow human beings “can understand what I write.” I’ve made the mistake of expecting people to be reasonable. Which brings us back to the very beginning of my very long entry…. Here are the Tweets:

Again, I’m obviously not racist, but then comes the kicker:

At this point I realised that what I was engaging in was pointless….When I then saw the thread further up in this entry later that month I realised that I had to write a blog entry. It is a serious issue that so many cannot comprehend the information that they are presented with. Sure, it is tough to read science papers, especially if written in an academic language, it is difficult to read ancient literature, of course this is hard, but none of what I shared on here today is. None of it. None.

This is why politicians talk “down to people” this is why there are PR agencies that are commissioned to create and manufacture easy slogans and “perfect” official personas. People who never say anything that contradicts or challenges the orthodoxy, even when they are aware of how bad things are, such as Podesta. This is how corporations get away with blood on their hands, because they are good at marketing and making their products “human.” How healthy is this for a society and how healthy is it for the west? Not particularly, which I’ll address in my next entry, where I’ll discuss an article I read some days ago about “Politics vs. Emotionalism.”

Patron Saints of Europe.

Standard

I was looking  for a symbol that could represent Europe besides the EU flag. On my quest for this I came across the following Saints listed below … I guess I was thinking of Athena, patroness of Athens while I was searching for a “unified Europe symbol” I couldn’t really find much besides what I’ve listed ↓

  1. Saint Benedict.
  2. Saint Catherine of Siena.
  3. Saint Ansgar. The patron saint of Scandinavia.
  4. St. Teresa Benedicta of The Cross.
  5. Bridget of Sweden.
  6. Saint Cyril & Saint Methodius
  7. Saint Scholastica, the twin sister of Saint Benedict.
  8. Jan Hus. A very interesting read about one of the “predecessors” of Martin Luther.
  9. Christina, Queen of Sweden. An interesting read about the “tomboy Queen” who converted to Catholicism & abdicated her throne.
  10. Eternal King and Patron Saint of Norway: Saint Olaf.
  11. Saint Magnus Erlendsson. A patron Saint of Norway.
  12. Religious Retreats.
  13. Croatian Hand Tattoos.
  14. What the KKK and the & Catholic church have in common.
  15. Odin.

 

The End Is Nigh…..(yawn)

Standard

So Marine Le Pen lost yesterday … I guess it is time for me to start a riot, whine all over my social media, unfriend those who disagree with me while lamenting that the end is nigh…..

I’ve seen countless posts on FB celebrating that “Democracy won” in France this Sunday; because as we all know: Democracy only works when those you cheer on win!  (http://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/264865/stop-hating-white-people-and-maybe-theyll-vote-you-daniel-greenfield)

I sincerely hope that Macron will do a good job. Do I think he will? No. Apparently he believes in the creation of a new “Eurabian Identity” according to what I’ve heard…so no wonder then that he was endorsed by anti-western leaders such as Obama and Merkel… in fact such endorsements should be enough to freak out anyone who cares about their country and its safety if you think about what these type of leaders support:

I personally find Macron’s victory puzzling, especially since France has suffered so much at the hands of Islamists. It is a country that gives off the impression of losing itself completely so it would be natural to expect some sort of backlash…..or maybe people have given up?

As we all know it is “perfectly normal” to be plagued by foreign holy warriors … who either undermine their “host” population discreetly or openly … I don’t buy into Khan’s narrative that terrorism is “part and parcel of living in a big city” I honestly consider it one of the dumbest things I’ve ever heard from anyone ever, but … each to their own.

Maybe the French don’t care about their identity anymore, maybe they don’t even know what it is….maybe they’ve bought into the narrative that the greatest threat to Europe are conservative leaders, who knows. They’ve cast their vote. Let’s see what happens next.

Ce n’est Pas Mon Problème!

Standard

The title of this entry translates to: “It’s not my concern,” or “that is not my problem”and it can be easy to feel that way if one lives, works and/or travels within a bubble….

Leaving a quiet hamlet in the Cotswolds to travel via Heathrow’s Terminal 5, to fly with British Airways towards Nice, with Marina Baie Des Anges as your final destination can certainly evoke that feeling of safety from the 90’s, if one is to ignore certain signs altogether.

My travel companions were two of my siblings this time around, which was very nice.

Our journey into the airport was seamless, moving around Heathrow was as well, and when we came out to our largely desolated gate we could hear beautifully spoken French and saw only what appeared to be locals and/or probably some expats here and there. It certainly looked like a very well dressed bunch, contrasting greatly with the usual suspects and diversity of characters one will see when travelling elsewhere. I received another reminder, by looking around, that a personal wardrobe update was much-needed…. :/

IMG_2837IMG_2867IMG_2881

The scenery reminiscent of the 90’s was only emphasised once we landed at Nice airport, which appeared to be completely unchanged. As we moved within the time capsule, making our way to the exit, memories were evoked of a past when travelling around in Europe felt safe, familiar and easy.

This bubble was burst the second we came into the Arrivals area as we bumped straight into heavily armed soldiers, patrolling the airport with a serious aspect. This was the only point during our journey when Europe’s current reality reared its ugly head. As we all gazed upon those who were armed to the bone I quickly asked my dad: “Are we in danger here? Has there been a threat?” I think we were all eager to get out of the airport as soon as we could. For a brief moment we were reminded of France’s “State Of Emergency,” Hollande’s total lack of control and France’s descent into total perdition. These thoughts crossed my mind  but not for long as I was greeted by palm trees and sunshine once we’ve made our way out of the terminal….

IMG_2892

A quick drive away from Nice, passing Cagnes-sur-Mer and we arrived at the “Marina Baie Des Anges.” A place I had seen countless times in the distance when we lived up in the hills, but a place I had never visited. Surrounded by yachts, and yuppie looking locals (to use a very American word) we raided the Marina supermarket for typical Mediterranean food, before we reached our final destination: Dad’s apartment.  I had never been there before, so I was utterly shocked to see the location, not to mention the view!

The expat life-style at the Marina Baie Des Anges surely contrasted greatly with the reality of a family living up in the hills.

When we lived in France, as a family, the stress was never-ending. Due to the location of our home we depended on our car and it wouldn’t have been a far cry to suggest that my mother could might as well have moved into our vehicle. Life on the Riviera was stressful, a hassle.

I did well and liked living there, but for parent’s of a newborn baby, having to drive the older kids back and forth to school, having to take care of errands, dealing with a shady land lord and the difficulty of finding houses to rent long-term, not to mention the difficulty of getting anything done on the Riviera…. etc; Well…the situation was exhausting, especially due to countless relatives and friends visiting non-stop since they all wanted to come to France, especially when the accommodation and hospitality was for free…. This hotel-activity only added to the work load in an already chaotic existence, add to the picture how child-fiendly and unforgiving the school system can be to those who struggle with the language and/or fall behind and you certainly won’t have much of La Vie En Rose….

IMG_3068

Living as a pensioner, without small children, in an apartment on the beach is a very different situation and can therefore not be seen as representative neither for the vast majority nor for those living a regular lifestyle.

My latest France-trip was altogether a very different experience and I can finally say that I actually enjoyed staying on the Côte d’azur for the very first time. I suspect that this had a lot to do with the nature of my travel and the location….far removed from the tragedy of Nice…one had the impression of “space” and peace, something that is almost unattainable on the modern-day Riviera. You literally have to find a little “pocket” far away from the over crowded beaches and tourists, which is easier said than done….

IMG_2928

Life in Baie Des Anges appeared easy enough. Waking up to the wonderful weather, eating light Mediterranean food, abandoning devices and the never-ending torrent of horrible news, to “promenade” past the peaceful Marina, heading towards a small local coffee shop on the Beach.

Because this little restaurant is as close as it is to the Marina, you didn’t get the same amount of people as you would other places. The clientele seemed to be expats killing time and local Frenchs who were dressed as if though it was autumn or winter….

Properly equipped with wetsuits we went swimming, as one does, especially if Scandinavian….I will not claim that the water was particularly pleasant, but it felt good to swim and be active even though it left me exhausted every time.

….And so the rhythm works at the Marina…. You go about things as I described above, including a very long coffee break before and/or after you swim. You then go back to your flat to eat lunch on the terrasse, followed by a prolonged siesta…..whatever happens after that is up to chance, followed by a prolonged dinner and a good nights sleep. Things can certainly drag out…..as seems to be the norm the further south one goes….

IMG_2950

Not being particularly keen on neither siestas or taking things easy, I was trying to experience as much as possible. Whether it was walking for two hours on the promenade with my brother, or chasing everyone out to partake in a collective bicycle trip, or hiking in the mountains! The most enjoyable activities on the Côte D’Azur are those that cost little to no money and take place in little “pockets” in a considerable distance to Nice or any other densely populated area. Whether you are eating like a Frenchman (which is worth the cost) in the hills or reading Nice Matin on the beach, you want to avoid any place that is too “accessible” such as “Galeries Lafayette.”

As I mentioned above, it is easy to forget about France’s “State Of Emergency” and I was therefore really surprised when my mother mentioned during one of our evening talks that there had been a terrorist attack in Paris!

Since I had officially taken a “holiday” from my phone I was utterly ignorant of the matter. I then decided to bring my phone with me as a “security measure” in case of an emergency, which seemed almost comical while hanging around in the bubble of “Baie Des Anges.”

Reality burst the bubble once again though when I was stopped by a security guy over at  Galeries Lafayette who refused to let me into the building without going through my bag first. The fact that the guy stood there all by himself didn’t exactly make us feel any safer, so we moved around the shopping mall, vigilant and cautious, as the place was overcrowded. It was also significantly more diverse than other places with a plethora of traditionally dressed Muslims. It is easy to see why such a place would be an ideal target for Boogeymen looking to inflict as much damage as possible…not that it would be easy to pick them out from the crowd….the air quality inside the mall was poor as well, so it felt good to get out of there as quickly as possible…there are other shopping opportunities around the Riviera….

Reading about terrorism and the increased threat in the local newspaper “Nice Matin” day after day, seemed surreal. One can easily throw both hands up in the air while exclaiming “what Islamist problem!?” if not exposed to the real world or if paying no attention to alterations in the current European environment, subtle, but still noticeable if one remembers…. 

The greatest curse of humanity is its short-term memory….I’m sure….

After explaining how one can come to the Riviera and leave again in good faith, believing that the panic of the right is greatly exaggerated; it was then suggested that maybe it would be a good idea to go into Nice….The idea of public transportation was quickly rejected, as there is certainly no need to expose oneself to unnecessary danger, the idea of going into lost territories where one can no longer see a single Frenchman was rejected equally quickly, but we decided to drive through Nice, which is probably the best thing to do….when we did we were reminded once again of the “current France” as we drove past heavily armed military men, patrolling Promenade Des Anglais….

We drove along the Mediterranean, looking at the Villas, the boats and the view, driving through Monaco, where I witnessed the most ridiculous spectacle ever: car chasers. At first I thought that there was a huge celebrity behind us, after driving into the onslaught of big lenses and manic looking people. But I realised while we drove around in the tiny Principality that no; these were “car stalkers” wide-eyed and mad looking, throwing themselves after any fancy looking car….with their oversized lenses or cellphones…  Of all things…..

My stay in France was “lugnt” but the ghost of a France in shambles was lurking in the background, albeit discreetly. Posters were on display everywhere of the various candidates for the French presidency and the papers were writing about increased, heightened security at any voting station….bringing to mind the state of affairs in other countries, in far away places, where voting can be a lethal affair…..

In addition I couldn’t help but notice how the region could benefit from an infrastructure update, just like its other western counterparts, such as the USA. The west in general gives off an air of being “passé,” let’s cross our fingers that this can be changed….with the right anti-globalist, pro-western leadership…

“Wouldn’t it be nice” I mused; “to own a boat and escape away from it all, soaking up the sun in the middle of the Mediterranean in peace?” Only to realise the moment that these words had left my mouth,that you can might as well run into bandits as you lounge on your yacht. For all I know you might run into a rowboat with Migrants who’ve kindly thrown Christians over board, as Muslims aren’t too keen on sharing a boat ride with infidels….There are few places where one can truly “hide.”

“Experts” lament the tragedy of divisive leaders, utterly ignorant of a divide that already existed, as a result of previous leadership’s fiascos and idealistic self-destructive ideologies. These things along with all other problems faced by Europeans are easy to forget if one strive to deliberately remain ignorant. By self-segregating in a pleasant bubble while avoiding any news and online activity, one can delude oneself into thinking that there are no issues. The bubble is increasingly shrinking though and can be blasted into pieces at any given moment if you are unfortunate enough to be in the wrong place at the wrong time….

I predict that gated communities will become increasingly common and that personal security levels might reach those often portrayed among whites in South-Africa…

Heading back home after a wonderful week of peace and quiet, a reminder of the current state of affairs resonated once again when a Muslim-looking-man right in front of us was denied entry by the passport controller…. Reality reared its ugly head too when the British Airways flight captain included this during his announcement: ” I just want to add, that regardless of your religious believes and where you come from you are always welcome into the UK” … great I thought to myself … another one completely ignorant of the fact that we do have enemies … sure it’s nice to be welcoming … but you cannot be welcoming to all….especially not towards those who want to kill you.

After a flight that was notably less glamorous than the previous one, thanks to a family behind us with a baby crying all the way, accompanied by parents who were complaining about the baby to the baby….not to mention the fact that said baby threw his pacifier hitting my head…..we finally landed…..

As our journey came to an end I couldn’t help but notice that none of the people working at Heathrow were British, besides the Border Control Agent….contemplating gradual, deliberate, demographic displacement and replacement, I thought to myself how strange it must seem to those visiting Britain for the very first time, to not see any Englishmen employed anywhere as they land and set foot in England. These thoughts though abandoned me once again as I headed out into the countryside, where remnants of genuine English culture still lives, while it gradually fades away everywhere else, especially in urban  areas….

One can easily say: “Ce n’est Pas Mon Problèm,” but for how long will it remain so?

Norway’s Worst Nazis by Bernt Rougthvedt.

Standard

During one of my visits to Norway I saw a book about “Norway’s Worst Nazis” while passing through the airport. I thought that this was interesting since the only narrative we love to share is the one of “resistance” and “contempt” for “the occupation.” So this time around I made it my mission to track down the work! I was really happy that I was able to find it since I had forgotten what the title was which meant that I had to go through lots of WW2 books over in Bergen, as I was only able to recognised it due to the “wording” or the author’s writing style on the back of the book.

This work features 60 Nazis who had influence in Norway during the “occupation years.” Some of them were ideologues others were guilty of torture, some were actual Germans, the most hated ones were Norwegians aiding the occupants, some received a sentence that they deserved when the war was over, others escaped very cheaply from their crimes…(Gestapo man Georg Wolf became a journalist for Der Spiegel for example….. some other German nazis apprehended in Norway were deported back to their homeland where they got themselves normal jobs………)

The book makes for a sad read that’s for sure, especially because some of the most heinous crimes depicted in this book came from Norwegians mistreating, torturing and killing their fellow country men over ideology…

Written about Thorvald Thronsen: ” 30. November he led a group of 15 “hird-men” in an outright attack on students and teachers at the Oslo “Handelsgymnasium.” They wanted to set an example after a “hird-boy” at the school had been in conflict with other students. During the attack they forced themselves into the school building and classrooms mistreating both headmaster, teachers and students.” (direct translation by me from the Norwegian text).

Written about Ole Wehus and his torture of Tor Njaa: “Njaa developed gangrene in his wounds, and over time he was incapable of standing upright. Big meat-chunks the size of the palm of a hand came off his body. The stench in his cell was intolerable. Sipo-SD however never managed to get any information out of him … He died under a transportation to Dachau in september 1944. This was however not the only time that Ole Wehus was active during the interrogation of a prisoner. He had tortured and mistreated more than 90 people before the war was over.” (direct translation by me from the Norwegian text).

“Germans deported 644 students to Germany, after Jews, military officers and police officers had suffered the same fate.” (direct translation by me from the Norwegian text).

There is special focus on the ship SS Donau in the book, probably because this was the first “shipment” of un-wanted people (jews). There were more individuals who were deported though not mentioned in the book. Out of the 532 prisoners on SS Donau only 9 survived the war, more deportations (and escapes) followed suit. 767 Jews from Norway were deported during the occupation, the majority ended up in Auschwitz, only 26 survived. Internment camps were also erected in Norway.

“Nasjonal Samling” Norway’s only legal political party during “the occupation” were literally “puppets” for the Germans, they were butting heads though as Germany’s vision for Norway differed. Quisling was very keen on Norway re-gaining its sovereignty and his main ideologue emphasised “Norwegianness” which clashed with Germany’s view of Norwegians as a sub-race to “Übermensch” Germans. It is believed that Quisling’s main ideologue, along with his wife, was assassinated by the occupants, when his car officially slipped off a ferry drowning him. The couple was apparently asleep in the backseat when it happened, but it wasn’t legal at the time to drive/leave a car with passengers inside the vehicle onto that type of boat. As the men on board were Germans, and things were politically tense, the accident gave birth to conspiracy theories. The Germans were not happy with Norwegian patriotism, but Quisling, funny enough, managed to get a promise from Hitler himself, that Norway was to regain its sovereignty after the war…..

The book reminds me of a real life “Game Of Thrones” in many ways, with all of these different characters, many of them extremely intelligent and successful, competing for control and power. There seems to have been many assassinations carried out by the Norwegian resistance during “the occupation.”  The most popular targets were Norwegians aiding the Nazis, Quisling even asked for 10 000 personal pistols to “his people” so that they could protect themselves from the rebels.

An interesting character that stood out to me was Halldis Neegaard Østbye who through a letter written to Quisling tried to delay or postpone the Jewish deportation, advocating for imprisonment in Norway instead, as the country was facing so much instability internally that she felt that a “moderate” direction would benefit NS more.  She also proclaimed that it was “un-aryan” to kill people slowly prolonging the suffering of ones enemies. Yet she also knew what the deportation entailed for the unfortunate victims as she wrote that: “it is granted that “the final solution” should be brought to completion without sentimentality when it comes to securing our own people and Europe from a new Jewish foray.” (my own direct translation based on the Norwegian text). “She meant that ” the jews are no race,” but viewed Judaism as a religious sect where followers had been guilty of inbreeding, isolating themselves from the outer world for centuries.” (my own translation based on the Norwegian text). 

It is interesting to note that the Jewish community was criticised since they did not integrate but rather created parallel societies within European countries…….

Even in Norway properties and belongings were confiscated, something that disgusted certain individuals within the Nazi/NS regime as it was seen as tasteless and corrupt theft of other’s property.

There was a lot of internal division. Some nazis were full on supporters of the Germans only, others of only Quisling, the majority of the population probably hated the whole scenario, while some of the resistance fighters appears to have been full on communists. Written about Per Imerslund: These groups formed a left-ish oppostion to NS, who they accused of being a capitalist party managed by freemasons. The Ragnarok-group … was just as anti-capitalist as it was anti-communist.” (translation by you-know-who).

It is also interesting to note that those who were reluctant to partake in the horror-regime were sometimes threatened with deportation themselves from their superiors: ” his subordinates feared him, because he threatened to send them to concentration camps or kill them with his own hands if they disobeyed  his orders.” ( Written about Ernst Weiner p.173, translated by guess-who).

It was also part of the plot of course to infiltrate the church, the education system and entertainment industry, in order to win the culture war and sway public opinion – and we all know who won that war in the end……*cough*The ghost of Marx*cough*cough*

The book is an interesting read for sure. I think it would have been good if a “map” of all the different Nazis mentioned had been included though, depicting how NS and the various German institutions overlapped, along with the personnel included. Since the perpetrators are presented to the reader in alphabetical order, you’ll find yourself going back and forth within the book to connect the various dots.

I would certainly recommend this book. I liked it.

 

 

International White Person Day.

Standard

Today we celebrate the immense contribution of extraordinary pale people from all over the world.

We realise that the globe would be a grim place without anemic creatures in need of sunlight, so today we should all stand in solidarity with white people, no matter where they might be.

If you refrain from sharing inspirational quotes from white people on this day or if you under any circumstance dare to mention anything negative about anything white-related, then you must sure as hell be an evil, bigoted, racist.

How To Be Evil In 2017.

Standard

A little while ago I came across a “scandal” that was creating quite a buzz over in Norway. The online frenzy had been caused by  a commercial, launched by a Norwegian weapon manufacturer. The company in question had teamed up with the national ski jumping  team creating a poster depicting the athletes with a Norwegian flag waving in the wind.

This created a social media “backlash” since the “national romantic” picture could resemble “Nazi” propaganda according to critics. A representative for the company even bothered to officially apologise claiming that they only saw “proud ski jumpers & the Norwegian flag” but that they would never use such an ad again….(here is the story)

Yes…you read that right…I’m guessing that one of the reasons for the backlash was the fact that all of the athletes were white. You see an all-ethnic-Norwegian line-up, looking towards the sky, with the “evil” flag in the background. This of course looks nationalistic and has to be suppressed. I’m willing to bet that the ad would have been welcomed with open arms if the girl in the front was wearing a hijab. But alas, only Norwegians are in this picture featuring representatives of Norwegian sportsmanship  so of course this is offensive………..

Everyone knows that a national team is only good if the majority are immigrants so that they don’t really represent how an ethnicity/nation would actually perform internationally…. A good team, just like the military has to reflect what is politically correct, so I have to say that I’m amazed at the fact that a quota hasn’t been forced upon the ski jumping team as the absence of such measures must surely be racist….

I’ve previously mentioned “national romanticism” in my “Identity” entry, as this movement was very important to Norwegian culture as we had just gained our independence from Sweden. This movement emphasised and celebrated everything Norwegian, as we took our power back.

Now though, regardless of its contribution, the mainstream do everything in their power to destroy it, in a desperate attempt to create the “new Norway” where being Norwegian is not an ethnicity anymore and where the Norwegian flag only counts if an imam is waving it…if a blond Norwegian waves it I bet it would be very “nazi-ish.”

There was a debate raging some years ago about whether or not it was wrong that Norwegians were waiving Norwegian flags on Norway’s Constitution/National Day as this was offensive to outspoken Muslims.

Yes I repeat…it was offensive to wave only Norwegian flags on Norway’s National Day.

Norway is only Norway if anything or anyone can be Norwegian….including the flag.

So a Chinese dish is as everyone knows very Norwegian, a mosque is totally viking, a turban wearing Sikh is the epitome of Norwegianness, in fact everyone knows that it is very “Nazi-ish” to be white and live in Norway or any other Scandinavian country…

Openness is the new shared European value, which means that there really is no culture anywhere at all, as anything goes. The only cultural identity is no identity at all or actual cultural appropriation.

In this spirit Sweden has apparently spent or is going to spend   1,5 million Swedish Kroners of taxpayers money to build a camel centre…..as everyone knows camels are very Scandinavian, so of course it makes sense that you would go to Sweden to pet them. Muslims are for some strange reason feeling insulted as the initiative is meant for them! I have truly no idea as to why they would feel that a camel zoo in Sweden is ridiculous…(when I first heard of this I thought it was a joke…a part of me still want to believe that…)

This ties in with some other articles  I came across where a certain Eastern-European leader is described as disgusting. Why is he disgusting? Because he is an actual nationalist…and everyone knows that the number one way to make enemies in the current year is to be European, proud of your country and waving your flag while singing your national anthem…..
