The Right To Bear Arms & Multicultural Utopia….

I cannot imagine anything worse than the ability for force combined with bottomless, indisputable, idiocy.

Sadly this is a most distressing combo that people easily forget about and/or know nothing about, since they’ve never been directly exposed to it for a prolonged period of time….

I was first made aware of this phenomenon when I went to school over in the U.S.A.

I wasn’t particularly interested in being bullied around by kids from the ghetto who also had access to the school that I attended, in the name of egalitarianism I presume.

The danger of putting high achieving and/or privileged kids together with those from “projects” is that one group will easily take advantage of the inexperience and naivetรฉ of the other….

A certain attitude is required to survive in particularly rough environments….

Inner-city roughness gives birth to, and enables the rise of “mini-dictators” and a certain prevailing rudeness of character that will see kids reared in privileged environments eaten alive if they aren’t careful….

Since I wasn’t interested in being one of the cowed I found myself in a situation where I was all of a sudden being “eyed” and pointed out by groups of “project kids.” It dawned upon me that America certainly wasn’t Norway (which used to be homogenous, high-trust, very safe and civic-minded,ย before government-approved “cultural enrichment” from tribal, low-trust, more violent, alien societies) and that a refusal to be bullied by low performing individuals, who’s greatest aspiration in life was to be some sort of “gangsta,” probably wasn’t so smart.

This experience certainly turned me into a big believer in the 2nd amendment since the only option for protection that I had was signing up for self-defence classes…. Something that I started doing out of necessity rather than having an innate desire for being Rambo.

On a couple of occasions I also overheard how other students would throw it out there that they wanted to “Columbine their entire school,” because the other students were “stupid,” whenever I then turned around to see who these potential delinquents were, they were always without exception: short, fat, ugly, female and white.

(God certainly has some bad days or maybe the Devil has some very good ones….)

I always felt very troubled when overhearing such “lone gunwoman” statements, because at what point do you call the authorities? Is it a joke? Is it just a saying? Is it just a way to vent?

Which is precisely why I always turned around so that I could scan their faces and know their names and why I also sharpened my ears further. I certainly kept an eye on these weirdos but reached the conclusion by observing them that they were harmless. Which I was right about. Thank God.

I realised back then that everybody hates and everyone is hated, and that those who don’t fall into one of the two categories are the exception to the rule. I even wrote a Metal song about it.

Even if some people espouse hate it doesn’t necessarily mean that they’ll stab or shoot the person that they openly loathe; that being said I take it as self-evident that the threshold is lower when it comes to kids from rougher environments. This is why you hear of people being beaten the crap out of just because they looked at someone weird or spoke up. These are prevalent stories on both sides of the Atlantic. The same can be said of white kids being targeted simply because they are “whities.” Something that I became very scared of myself. Wouldn’t it have been ironic if a Norwegian was beaten up or shot due to American segregation and slavery in the past? That is a bizarre thing to walk around and be afraid of.

Over here in Europe things have taken on a whole new form; I heard of a hate-crime story where African women physically attacked white Spanish women on the London underground, because “only English should be spoken here in England.”

So that means that if I speak Norwegian with my relatives when I go to the capital, then I might run the risk of African women beating the crap out of me, when I’m genetically closer to white people who live on this island than these Africans are????? Talk about strange. I’m actually more closely related to the natives in England since I’m actually a NATIVE EUROPEAN just like the Spaniards are. Talk about ridiculous.

Anyway … It greatly troubled me when I lived over in the U.S.A. that someone like myself, who knew what I wanted to do with my life, could all of a sudden end up the victim of either a school massacre and/or a targeted hate-crime assault committed by low performance losers with no goals and no purpose in life at all whatsoever.

When I later moved into a territory where MS-13 were expanding and recruiting new people, I certainly felt that my conclusions about egalitarianism-culture was well founded.

The same can certainly be said about “cultural enrichment” in Europe.

Thankfully I survived being exposed to “enforced egalitarianism” and “cultural enrichment,” but it certainly taught me how annoying it is that you can dream and plan about a career and a certain life, only to have it all taken from you in a second due to a no-gooder; who hates you because of presumed privilege, who hates you because of the colour of your skin, or hates God and all of mankind due to their own failures.

It is tragic, but it is sadly an aspect of life that is often overlooked and/or forgotten. People escape from cultural enrichment if they can. If people don’t like how their neighbourhood is changing they pack up as fast as they can and leave. Those who don’t know any better or cannot go anywhere have the option of being treated like crap, to join the newcomers by integrating into their culture, or to fight.

A good indicator of how Urban America can profoundly change a person was when I found myself out walking in London one evening and I heard loud hip-hop bass coming from a car driving up behind me. My hair was literally standing on edge, I quite frankly had goosebumps, and found myself scanning the environment for a place to seek refuge as I instinctively sensed danger and an attack.

What I’m addressing in this entry is most important to keep in mind when initiating National or even worse, Continental social projects. When you open up the flood gates to other cultures that you arrogantly assume will just praise your values and automatically integrate into your societies, you might just end up being conquered.

So much for so-called high-performing populations, with all their tech and academic intellectuals..

It is all useless unless you’re prepared and equipped to deal with “so-called” low-performing population groups, who might not have your art and philosophy, but who’ll kick your ass left right and centre, both when it comes to violence and birth rates….

What I’ve certainly taken away from all of this is this: Listen to your instincts – never the experts or the mainstream media narrative.

Freedom in Europe & Tommy Robinson. Freedom in U.S.A. & Roseanne Barr.

I became greatly troubled when I heard the news of how Tommy Robinson had been sentenced to 13 months in prison for standing outside a courthouse streaming from yet another grooming case. What I found especially worrying was that no one in the press were allowed to report on it, until the ban was lifted today (Thank God). Now I do not consider myself to be a member of the press, but I’m a civilian Westerner who participate in our societies, which is what we are meant to be doing … I sign petitions that are being passed around the digital world, I’ve sent some emails to local representatives asking about MicroPlastics in our drinking water, I’m helping out in the local community and I registered myself as a voter last year and campaigned within the family to get as many votes with me as possible down to the Norwegian embassy in London. I also shared information on my blog regarding the election and promoted the whole ordeal everywhere in order to inspire my fellow Norwegians to participate in the democratic process!

I sent an email to the local Parish council wondering if I could be of help, since I knew that there was a position open and that they struggle to get new people in. I was not eligible due to the particular EU deal that my country of origin has – but if I had been eligible I would have been very happy to help! I live in a small village and feel that I’m experiencing the best of England. My experience of this country is nothing but good. That being said I am seriously considering investing in Medieval Chain Mail for my next London trip … since it is illegal for people to protect themselves in this country……

I myself don’t have to worry about “Trucks of Peace” at the local Christmas market where I live, but I also understand that there is no guarantee that this Utopia will continue….

I live in one of the safest areas in the UK and can in many ways just turn a blind eye to the suffering and fears that other people in this country have to deal with, but I have not.

Whenever a person decides to voice their opinion there is usually a turning point and for me that was the one year anniversary for the attack on Charlie Hebdo in France.

Like many troublesome things … it all started with France…..

A post shared by The Commander In Chief (Berit) (@thecommanderinchief1) on

You see … I lived there for a year and attended school there, so I know that you will never get any good grades at all, if you don’t participate in the exchange of ideas.ย Yes ladies and gentlemen, this is the beauty and the essence of France’s greatness. At least in my opinion. It is all about having your say and expressing yourself, being yourself, being YOU and celebrating libertรฉ, รฉgalitรฉ, fraternitรฉ!

Regardless of what you might want to believe, the French are fearless. They are not interested in their rights being taken from them, they are not interested in being treated unfairly, and will march out in the streets, throw their fist in the air, and let the whole world know what they think!

Sure, I do not envy anyone working within the French Government, as that must surely be a challenging endeavour. In fact, I would probably sleep in a bunker every single night if I was Macron.

Yet it is this passion and this celebration of individualism that makes France so very fascinating, even if the French are picky when it comes to how you speak their language….

A year after the vicious attack on Charlie Hebdo I couldn’t get over it, I couldn’t let it go. Nobody else seemed to care anymore. There were no hashtags, there were no flag-filters, people were busy with their own affairs and seemed like they had forgotten.

To me it was the day that I published my very first entry about the current continental crisis that we are standing face to face with in Europe today. At the time I didn’t know as much as I know now, I’ve changed somewhat, but I knew that I had to speak my mind and speak up for our part of the world, and whether people agree with my particular values or not; that is precisely what I did.

After this I’ve expressed my opinions online continuously and can’t understand for the love of God why Britain would be interested in deconstructing itself, a phenomenon that isn’t solely English, but a cultural and political issue that can be observed all over the Western world.

In fact I’ve started to wonder if there is a biological expiration date in the “coding” and whether or not this can be credited to the self-destruction mode that apparently has been activated among peopleย withย pale complexions all over the world regardless of geography….

But that would mean giving up on The West and I’m not willing to do that.ย 

I myself have never participated in any protests anywhere in the world and have absolutely no crime record at all whatsoever, anywhere. In fact, if one was to dig properly, nothing can be found, besides my opinions, my sense of humour and me sending slightly (in fact very) retarded messages to people I’ve considered my friends – because yes – I do like to troll people, and yes that will sometimes result in you falling flat on your face. That being said; if I know that I’ve been acting like a fool, I will also apologise.

The idea that I could all of a sudden be some kind of an enemy due to what I’ve liked on Facebook, re-grammed on Instagram or re-Tweeted on Twitter, seems absurd. If I was to be considered a criminal due to openly supporting the US President or for opposing deconstructionism in Europe, then we’ve officially dishonoured all of those who’ve died in the past to allegedly secure us our much envied freedoms…..

I’m asking myself why people have died for their countries if their legacy is to be overshadowed by “The People’s Democratic Republic of Europe,” and that is precisely the disgustingย monstrumย that we’ve degenerated into if you’ll get a SWAT team crashing through your front door at night for standing with your country of residency, rather than promoting the caliphate, burning the flag and/or demanding reparations due to some legitimate or un-legitimate offence in the past.

Am I asking the Germans for money? Am I suing them? Am I eating cake when Germans are killing themselves with their self-destructive policies? The answer to all of those questions is a resounding no. I am the last person interested in a German shouting at me, which they easily resort to it seems, but even though this is true I’m not popping the champagne when their Nation is going to shit. There are people out there who want reparations now because of the TransAtlantic slave-trade, there are people who try to play all kinds of cards due to colonisation: “Remove your flag – it is a sign of imperialistic oppression.” Do you want to import these type of attitudes into your country? Well not if you want your country to survive.

When I started sharing my concerns regarding Europe here on my blog I certainly didn’t sit here with a strategic master-plan. I’ve expressed my opinions as a European resident/citizen, and these concerns are legitimate. I do not have a go-bag underneath my bed, nor do I have 50 different fake passports in my safe, nor am I currently trying to destroy my own fingertips so as to make identification harder, nor do I have a stealth-Niqab at the ready.

If you live in a dictatorship you know that liking something on a social media platform, if you even have access to such a thing, can be the equivalence of firing a shot. There are a great number of Christians out there who live in constant fear that people will find out that they have a Bible in their household. People are afraid of speaking their minds all over the world and if one thing is to be said it is that you should never go into a fight or a battle if you are ill-prepared.

If the conclusion I reach regarding our current Europe is that you must have a grand strategy in place before you can even say something at all online, then we’ve already lost. Thankfully I read this evening that it is alright for people to share the news regarding Tommy Robinson’s arrest, and that was surely a great relief.ย 

Now; I’m not trying to say that Robinson is a Saint, I do not know the guy, have never met him, but I’ve seen some of his content. This man loves his country and hates what it is becoming, from what I can tell. He is also the last man who I would want to piss off, because believe me, if this man feels wronged or if he is on to something, he will not stop. I’ve seen how he has confronted those who try to bring him down and that is precisely why he is now in prison. ย He displays the same drive and energy that can be witnessed when mainstream media people are running after a person they want to get hold of and/or target. He is obsessed with the future of his own country and has risked everything for his cause. By throwing him into prison he has automatically been given the martyr status that any sensible opposition should have avoided. Whether he survives his very long sentence or not;ย he has become a symboland symbols never die.

It was clumsy to silence the press, it drew instant attention and made the story go viral. I mean look at this:ย http://www.breitbart.com/london/2018/05/26/redacted-arrested-for-redacted-outside-redacted-leeds-crown-court-issues-media-ban/

Since I’m a Westerner, who lives in a free democratic world, with freedom of speech as one of its/our greatest virtues – I haven’t exactly prepared for a battle. I represent the very individualism that our part of the world champions, but this also means that I’m not exactly meeting in secrecy with unofficial organisations that will have my back if I’m all of a sudden considered an official threat for being pro-English, pro-Europe, pro-French, pro-Scandinavia, pro-American – in other words – pro-West.

Am I guilty for being curious? And am I guilty if I care about the well-being of this country? You see that is the impression one can easily get….

Yesterday I got pissed off when I saw a Tweet from Gad Saad. It is certainly rich to sit over in Canada and ask oneself why on earth people aren’t talking about Mr.Robinson over here in Europe when the media has officially been told to shut up about a non-ethno-Nationalist being thrown into prison, where he will probably end up getting killed! Gad Saad doesn’t even live here, and if you all of a sudden suspect that you’ve woken up in the new USSR, then it certainly isn’t risk-free to address our current challenges, especially if you officially stand alone without any firm and/or confirmed alliances. Apparently this hasn’t crossed the mind of someone like Saad … if the gag order had not been revoked I could have concluded a much shorter entry by making a point of:

“what Mr.Robinson? There never was a Mr.Robinson in Section E-42856? Welcome to The People’s Democratic Republic of Europe!”

Thankfully I’m not ending a blog entry with these words … or at least not yet.

In other news this evening I saw that Roseanne Barr was thrown under the bus today by everyone; even Breitbart, after she Tweeted something insulting to Valerie Jarrett using the word “ape.” Now I’ve actually referred to myself as an ape in one of my older entries. I do believe it was “pale nordic ape” … but then again I do think that all humans think too greatly of themselves … we are all silly little apes caught up in silly little arguments, wasting away, consumed with petty disagreements, but I guess this thinking of mine is worthless in an age where any comment, and especially any insult, can become lethal ammunition if used right.

Roseanne Barr’s comment was clumsy and I think the reason as to why I didn’t get really, really, angry is because I’ve referred to myself as an ape in the past. Then again I cannot really see myself calling a brown-skinned individual, or a minority person, for ape, because why on earth would I? It was a really silly or thoughtless move in an age where people are looking for racism and anything they can use anywhere!

Roseanne Barr gave the left what they wanted and what they are always on the look out for … I’m guessing that it would be catastrophic if President Trump now went out and defended Mrs. Barr, because the President has to deal with his own accusations of racism, something that he seems to be battling daily. (Record Low Unemployment Rates for Minorities in the U.S.A.)

This means that Roseanne has been disavowed by everyone which is a pity, because her show was much-needed. The opposition won, or at least this time around. Roseanne’s show has to come back because it was important, and people loved it. The fact that the left dictates what is allowed or not has to come to and end, because they insult and behave badly yet somehow manage to portray themselves as having the moral high-ground time after time. As of now there are lots of politicians all over the Western world who live in fear over what the media might write about them and this results in them having no balls, quite frankly.

The deconstructionists will win if they are allowed to dictate the rules of what one ought to talk about and what one oughtย not to even think about.ย 

Written by a pale, elusive Nordic ape in desperate need of sunshine.

Give Peace A Chance….

Today I saw this on Twitter & re-tweeted it…

I couldn’t agree more with Miss Mia.

This was my reply though to one of my followers who commented…

I also agree with this re-tweet:

The problem is that there are plenty of people out there who are literally on a non-stop crusade. They want to tear down everything that people like myself hold dear.

One thing is to have imported suicide bombers; it is something else entirely to have suicide-legislators/culture-warriors/politicians/foot-soldiers, who look like you, have the same heritage as you, but hate what ought to be looked after and protected.

These people hate everythingย what we’ve been lucky to inherit, especially military victories, since it is mean to win!

These characters don’t want to be criticised either when they launch their attacks! If you respond to their anti-European, anti-American hate-campaigns, then somehow you end up being the bad guy; it will especially look odd to those who are in the unknown and who don’t bother to watch or read what ticked you off in the first place. In fact it might look as if though you’re the angry “problematic” one.

What might surprise those who read my blog entries regularly is that I actually never initiate political discussions unless I’m discussing things within the family. It seems kind of deranged to throw out political statements when you bump into people you hardly know … One of the first rules I learnt when I was little, was that you don’t discuss politics and religion during dinner parties, as this might create unwanted tension which is the last thing you should opt for if people are gathering to enjoy themselves … What I find astonishing is that everyone else I seem to bump into automatically just blurt out left-wing political statements all the time, as if though these type of statements aren’t anchored in a political spectrum, but just fall into the category of “common sense” and “profound indisputable wisdom.”

I therefore find myself quite often in the receiving end of all sorts of left-wing propaganda, and when I then finally try to get a word in, after patiently listening to a “post-modern-sermon,” which quite often includes vulgarities of such a nature that I should probably run off to a monastery to cleanse my soul and ears, the other party is left stunned. How on earth can any soul disagree with the wisdom of deconstructionists? How is it even possible?

Conservatives on the other hand talk about other matters, probably because they are not on a non-stop revolutionary crusade. Because of this you will not really know where they are politically and even when you find out that the person in question is not a red, there is a high probability that you will never quite figure out where on the right-spectrum they might be; unless they have a blog or an official social media profile.

Here are a couple of splendid arguments that I’ve had to endure listening to, since I am so polite that I actually let people preach to me … even when it is completely uncalled for … As a result my brain has now expanded to such an extent that it has literally smashed through my cranium….. Behold minions. I will now share this wisdom with you:

1-I’ve been presented with the argument that because there are problems with crime and gangs in America already then it doesn’t really matter if you get some Islamist attacks on top of all of that in addition … The logic goes something like this: if there are white-supremacist prison gangs in America, then it doesn’t really matter if a huge terrorist attack from Middle-Eastern men kill lots of people in one go since the white-supremacists (who are in prison) will apparently kill just as many – but over a prolonged period of time … the conclusion is therefore that US President Donald J. Trump is a massive threat since he should not target specific demographics with travel bans or heighten US border security since this somehow makes him racist …ย I guess the logic here is that if the authorities are looking for a criminal with red hair and freckles, then it is of utmost importance to officially spy on, and target ANY demographic, even sub-Saharan Africans, so as to avoid, offending gingers………..

2-A blood relative of mine, (who is the only extended family member I have who actually looks a lot like me), is a proper intellectual who advocates that Norway needs more migration! Norwegians are not getting enough kids, so we have to engage in replacement migration to salvage our welfare-state! This bright relative of mine (no pun intended actually) even believes that there are no biological differences between population groups since differences are only the result of culture …The problem with my relative is that the information that she has studied and internalised isย extremely outdated. She remains strong in the faith however….

These are just a couple of enlightening examples. As I wrote in a blog entry after the election over in the U.S. of A.; I was apparently some kind of a bad guy since I wasn’t openly crying all over social media but officially celebrating since the candidate I supported had won! Nobody even cared to ask me why I didn’t support Mrs.Clinton. In fact I’ve never been asked that question by any of my friends…

Me liking anti-invasion, anti-Islamification statements from protective European politicians and patriotic groups on Facebook also cost me some acquaintances, who just mysteriously vanished … these were people who were pro-mass-migration posting “refugees welcome” posts. They didn’t bother asking me any questions either … Outspoken people on the opposite spectrum, love to believe that they are virtuous. That what they support is common sense. This is the impression that I have. And since they are the nice ones they certainly do not want to have anything to do with those who are mean!

I would probably have kept myself to a more centered, neutral position, if it wasn’t for the fact that these type of characters are constantly supporting, formulating, promoting, not to forget, enacting ideas that are downright dangerous. Nor do they try to be discreet even! There are no safe-zones for those who don’t want to listen to self-righteous virtue-signalling.

In fact, this is what I am asking myself:

  1. What is the point of practising for months and months, or dedicating years of one’s life to master a technique, that will enable you to keep parts of our cultural heritage alive, when we have fellow country men and women all over the Western world, who are at war with all of it? At what point will classical music be censored?
  2. What is the point of creating new art if you run the risk of being dismissed as politically incorrect?
  3. What is the point of thinking at all if you will automatically be guilty of thought-crime unless you think and express yourself within a set, restricted, politically correct frame?
  4. Should those who seek to destroy our shared and individual heritage, in addition to our Nations be left unchallenged?
  5. And what is the point of saying that you love your younger relatives if all you seek to do is to make their future increasingly unstable by supporting ideas that will make them targets simply because of the colour of their skin or their faith?

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: if we don’t care about our books, buildings, artworks, music and founding documents, then nobody else will!

Who will ever respect cultures that don’t even respect themselves?

The Silent Revolution.

On the 1st of February 2017 I received this in my inbox:

“In a 2005 article published by National Review, Gorsuch argued that “American liberals have become addicted to the courtroom, relying on judges and lawyers rather than elected leaders and the ballot box, as the primary means of effecting their social agenda” and that they are “failing to reach out and persuade the public”. Gorsuch wrote that, in doing so, American liberals are circumventing the democratic process on issues like gay marriage, school vouchers, and assisted suicide, and this has led to a compromised judiciary, which is no longer independent. Gorsuch wrote that American liberals’ “overweening addiction” to using the courts for social debate is “bad for the nation and bad for the judiciary”.[44][21]”

Assisted suicide? That was what stuck with me … mainly because of this horrifying article, which really shook me:ย Industrialised Murder in the Netherlands.

What on earth can be said about a society that wants to kill its own? Socialism at its absolute worst? Socialism reaching its final stage? And why on earth is this a core issue pushed by “liberal” activists on both sides of the Atlantic?

Aren’t these the people who like to think of themselves as generous and highly empathic? So concerned in fact about the well-being of women that they do this:ย French anti-pro-life Law.

Maybe it can be argued that it makes sense to support “assisted suicide” in the name of empathy, but then again where do we draw the lines of what is acceptable or not, not to mention how the Netherlands give their doctors carte blanche to kill their own patients. Good grief, if the times were different we could have put them under foreign administration on the basis of morality ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜›

Taking into consideration what I’ve posted before on my blog and how the current political landscape looks like today, this article should be of great interest:What’s Happening in America (1966) by Susan Sontag.ย The smell of hatred is just as poignant in 2017 as it was back then. Terrifying.

These articles should be of great interest to anyone & everyone, (especially if you’ve read my book review aboutย Warriors & Citizens), this is how unbalanced our institutions are:The Far Left Academia.ย &The End Of The University.

For anyone who is curious to find out about our “democratic construct” this is certainly mandatory reading:Democracy & The Intellectuals.

Here is a must-see video about McCarthyism. I don’t think anyone is ignorant of what McCarthyism is synonymous with, but it seems like we’ve been all taken for a ride … please take the time to watch this:ย 

Here is a very interesting phone conversation with Nixon actually, I listened to the whole thing. Check it out:ย Nixon on the Phone.

If you are bored and you wonder what Trump’s opposition is up to, then have a laugh at this:ย Anti-Trump propaganda.

Here I’m sharing a couple of videos from Canadian icon Jordan B.Peterson, please take the time to watch these two:

 

I’ll finish off with where I started by sharing a video about ridiculous legislation. Check it out!
