Milo is awesome.
The attack on him is beyond the pale.
He is my hero and I stand with him – no matter the smear campaigns against him!!!

Oh, this brings back so many flashbacks!!!
Including using ‘wheat paste’ – a type of ‘glue’ (if you can call it that) that is made up from mixing wheat flour with water.
As kids behind the iron curtain, this was the ‘go to’ home-made recipe for glue when no real glue could be bought in the stores. It is temporary at best and dissolves at the first rain…without making any mark whatsoever on the material it had been pasted on.
And, it would also ‘flake off’ if it dried out too much – say about 12 hours after being applied in a low humidity environment.
In other words, using ‘wheat paste’ glue is proof that no property damage was intended or inflicted. Yet, the arrest and charges and potential jail sentence remain. To be served in mosly Islamic part of the prison, no doubt…
Humour is the best medicine. It is also the best weapon against bullies, totalitarians, or anyone who takes themselves too seriously. Perhaps that is why humour is one of the first things curtailed when freedom of speech is threatened.
We have seen Canadian comedians fined thousands of dollars for telling a politically incorrect joke.
We have seen German comedians charged and threatened with extradition to Turkey for authoring a humorous poem about Recep Erdoğan.
We know we are not far from the days when Socialist Regimes on the wrong side of the Iron Curtain would routinely jail people for telling jokes…
Well, some of us know…
Perhaps those who lived behind the Iron Curtain remember it better than most of us. Perhaps that is why they cherish their Freedom of Speech and why they use humour to ensure it does not become as eroded as it has become in much of The West.
And Czechs do love their humour. It is therefore not surprising that Dr. Martin Konvicka, a brave patriot who is fighting to preserve his cultural heritage – and his freedom of speech – and his organization IMK (Iniciativa Martina Konvicky) have turned to humour to deliver their message.
And deliver it they did!
On August 21st, Czechs mark the anniversary of the invasion of Czechoslovakia by the Soviet Union of and the rest of their Warsaw Pact ‘allies’. This invasion had ended the liberalization of Czechoslovakia, called Prague Spring (after which the Arab Spring freedom movement was named), and was opposed by the vast majority of the population. Yet, when it became clear that the invaders were going to succeed in rolling back the progress towards liberalism and that hard socialism would indeed be imposed, many people had started licking the heels of their oppressors in order to improve their social status.
Now, Europe is experiencing a very different type of an invasion: millions of young, strong, able-bodied Muslims are flooding in, falsely claiming to be fleeing war, and imposing Sharia restrictions on the Freedom of Speech through threats of violence and massacres should the local governments refuse to impose them. And there is absolute proof that these people are not poor refugees fleeing war: some of the ones who had already been granted asylum in Europe – and living off of government subsidies – are also holidaying in their countries of origin.
Dr. Konvicka and IMK took the opportunity to draw parallels between the two invasions: the invasion of Czechoslovakia by their socialist brothers on the one hand and the Muslim invasion on the other. And the anniversary of the Warsaw Pact occupation was the perfect occasion!
As you can see from the videos above, it was a fun skit, people were enjoying it, except for the few who disagreed with the message – and who were not afraid to say so…which they would presumably be if they had thought this really was ISIS. Despite all of this evidence, Czech and International media corporations have universally reported panic, injuries and havoc…
And that is why you have to go to the blogosphere to see what had actually happened.
Following this street theatre, Dr. Konvicka was kind enough to grant this interview:
As you can see, humour is an effective tool to use against totalitarians of all stripes (or stars).
After the skit, many ‘Progressive’ politicians demanded an investigation into how Dr. Konvicka had managed to get a permit to stage this skit, calling for the bureaucrat who had granted it to be fired and Mr. Konvicka to be charged with something. Anything! Spreading false news, perhaps? (Would this not apply even more to the mainstream media?)
Well, there is still some sanity in Czech and the investigation had concluded just last week and found that everything was fine, and nobody has to get fired or charged with anything. Even more sanity: a judge has just dismissed all charges against the protesters who had carried gallows during last year’s anti-migrant demonstrations.
And Dr. Konvicka is far from being done. To mark the 15th anniversary of the Islamic attack on the Twin Towers on 9/11, he held a demonstration in front of the Saudi Arabian Embassy in Prague:
The event took place on the 11th of September, 2016, in front of the Saudi Arabian Embassy in Prague, from 2 pm until it had been disbanded about 30 minutes later.
The large sign behind Dr. Konvicka, hanging on the Saudi Embassy fence, has a delightful little rhyme:
Dr. Konvicka was not the only one to speak at this demonstration. Beata Radosa, a former Muslima who explained that she used to believe that a hijab would keep her modesty and protect her from sexual harassment. When wearing the hijab did not protect her from harassment by Muslim men, she began to loose her faith and eventually left Islam. Now, she is an activist and a blogger. Her site (in Czech) is called Women Against Islam.
In her above-linked post, she points out that the Magister’s office warned them against using the port-a-potty to represent the Ka’aba…even though this was not specified in the permit application. This can only bring us to one conclusion: in the minds of the Magister’s office bureaucrats, the Ka’aba and a port-a-potty are closely related.
And, she writes, the Port-a-Ka’aba was such a danger to public safety that a whole squad of police in riot gear had to come and monitor the situation.
Martin Vitek was the third speaker and he pointed out some negative aspects of Islam and how they are connected to Saudi Arabia.
Then came the street theatre, until, that is, uniformed police officers pulled the plug on it and heavily armoured police officers arrived to let everyone know they are willing to use force on unarmed citizens if they don’t obey the order fast enough. Photos of the armoured police dispersing the citizens are at this Czech language site.
The lesson of the day? ‘Piss Christ’ is art, ‘Dung Madonna’ is art, but ‘Port-a-Ka’aba’ is hate speech. And the Czech Republic, despite being one of the most enlightened societies, is perfectly willing to use physical force to curb speech it does not like.
Czechs are, however a tenacious peoples. (Is it still allowed to say that or is that now racist?) Dr. Konvicka and IMK are planning more activities: on September 17, 2016, and on November 17, 2016.
Stay tuned, dear readers, for what is coming next!
We all know this.
Yet, there is a difference between ‘bending the truth’ and ‘not living up to unrealistic promises’ and a 180 degree reversal in, oh, a day or so.
OK, let me paint the background.
“The #Dublin procedure for Syrian citizens is at this point in time effectively no longer being adhered to”
In other words: come to Germany, the rule of law no longer applies to illegal migrants… All are welcome, all will be let in and given extremely generous handouts.
This tweet was, understandably, the trigger for the tsunami of migrants coming to Germany. All of them claim to be ‘Syrians’ – even though the vast majority of them are not. But, they had destroyed all their documents and, in Germany, innocence/truthfulness is presumed until found guilty/proven fraudulent…which is extremely difficult to do with people with no documentation whatsoever.
Soon, Germany began to be inundated by so many mostly military-age, male, Muslim migrants that its infrastructure began to fail. And the criminality – especially sexual attacks and property damage/theft went through the roof.
Unable to cope with this influx of migrants who do not respect the ‘law of man’ – but only the ‘law of Allah’ = the Shariah, Germany swiftly switched its position as THE ONLY country that invited both refugees from war AND illegal migrants (its laws deny Germany the right to differentiate between true refugees and opportunistic migrants) to the position that all EU nations must take in their ‘fare share’ of migrants who are unwilling to assimilate nor are they willing (or able, education wise) to work.
As if ‘Germany invites them, everybody else must take care of them’ were somehow ‘fair’.
But, there is reasoning behind this madness.
Yes, I said ‘reasoning’ – not ‘reason’.
Because this ‘reasoning’ is anything but ‘reasonable’.
To understand it, we must look to the EU and the philosophy that underlines it.
In no uncertain terms, the EU is, in anything but name, the Fourth Reich. The significant difference between the Third Reich and the Fourth one is that the Third Reich was nationalistic. The Fourth Reich in ‘internationalistic’.
The Third Reich used violence to subjugate other European nations, while the Fourth Reich uses promises of trade deals to subjugate the rest of Europe into vassal states. The means are different, but the result is the same.
Its founders truly believe that the lesson to be learnt from the Third Reich and the Second World War is not that totalitarianism is bad, but that nationalism is. These naive geniuses truly and honestly believe that if they could erase national diversity in Europe, they would effectively prevent all the wars in the whole world. Because European nationalism is the cause of all evil in the world and nothing can stand up against it…
Aside from being extremely egocentric and supremacist of these elites (something they are blind to), it misses the point that the healthy competition between European nation states is what had ushered in the unprecedented age of prosperity we are living in now. And that destroying it would prevent the healthy growth of our civilization instead leading to stagnation and corruption.
Or, perhaps they DO get it – but want to bring our Western European/North American civilization back down to the same lowest denominator as the countries with the lowest level of civilization live under. Which is the stated goal of the United Nations. But, that is a different rant…
Actually, I do believe this second option is the true motivator for the elites’ sabotage of our Euro-American culture: they think they can isolate themselves in luxury and security and want the rest of the world’s cultures to be homogenized, bringing everyone to the lowest common cultural denominator – and thus eliminating ‘inequality’.
But, I digress.
Two days ago, the Czech Prime Minister – in a speech – said in no equivocal terms, that he does not want a strong Muslim minority in the Czech Republic.
One day ago, he had repeated the same message to the visiting German Chancellor, Angela Merkel.
Merkel’s visit to Prague was seen as a provocation by many citizens and, indeed, they turned up in huge numbers to show their dissatisfaction with her migrant policies. It was, perhaps, the very first time Frau Merkel had faced such massive demonstrations against her and her policies.
And, it seemed, the politicians were on board with the citizenry – as they should be.
President Zeman told Ms. Merkel, in no uncertain terms, that it is unfair and unacceptable of Germany to invite the migrant tsunami and then to shift the responsibility for looking after the migrants to all EU nations.
Similarly, the Prime Minister of Czech, Sobotka, delivered speeches on both Wednesday and Thursday, refusing any migrant quotas and stating that he did not want a strong Muslim minority (community) in the Czech Republic.
No sooner had Ms. Merkel left the country than…
…the Czech Ministry of the Interior had put our an RFP for a general cotractor tp provide housing and integration services for 6,000 migrants for the next 3 years.
While I’ve been writing this post up – with the aim to produce background and then translate the original article fro the Czech Website Parlamentni Listy, the story I wanted to both link to and translate has been disappeared.
Insert the most vile curses of your choice here – PLEASE!!!
Now I cannot document my claim – because I took too long to give the background and archive the link itself.
Please, do insert even more vile curses here!!!
I am reporting the truth!
More vile curses, please!
I am not lying – the article was published, by Parlamentni Listy, and was available just a few hours ago – but has vanished since.
If I can hunt the link down, I will update. In the meantime, my dear readers, I would like to call on you for help: if you can find any article/news story confirming this, before they get lost into ‘memory holes’, please, help me and post the link in the comments.
In the wake of the harassment of Ghostbusters star Leslie Jones, Twitter has permanently suspended conservative pundit and Breitbart Tech editor Milo Yiannopoulos.
Yiannopoulos, who tweeted under the handle @Nero, had several hundred thousand Twitter followers.
His account was permanently suspended around 10 p.m. ET on Tuesday.
So, just in case you wanted to catch his latest speech, here it is:
For those who do not know who Raif Badawi is:
He is a Saudi liberal who had run afoul of the theocratic dictatorship in Saudi Arabia – specifically for his classical liberal values. He has been sentenced to 10 years in jail and 1,000 lashes – 100 of which had been administered, but the rest of which is only being held back by international public pressure.
100 lashes are difficult to survive.
1,000 lashes – a death sentence.
Intellectuals from around the world have volunteered to take a portion of the lashes on Raif’s behalf, but the Saudi government refuses to even acknowledge these offers.
Here is a video from yet another Amnesty International rally in front of the Canadian Saudi Embassy protesting the treatment of Raif Badawi:
