Schoolchildren are converting to Islam ‘out of fear’ in German schools: Study warns Christians feel they are outsiders and are desperate to try and fit in since huge migrant influx.

Reminds me of a book I’ve read, an alternate history book that does not seem so unreal now.

Can’t remember the title. The main character was German boy drafted into the Janissary corps, and his sister. Eventually they escaped to Switzerland.

I’ve written a, very polite, letter to my local Liberal member about the idiocy of Dutton supporting this social media bill.
After seeing Albo complaining about him being subject to political caricatures surely Dutton will see how it is intended to stifle those who oppose the current regime.
Twitter isn’t a censorship free zone.
Unwanted graphic content, racism, calls for violence, threats are not tolerated. Accounts get suspended, people get permanently banned for the more egregious stuff.
Australian politicians need to look after their own backyards.
Hate speech is fine as long as it’s spouted by the right kind of people.

Went to a service in a Labor stronghold. When it started with an acknowledgement of Aboriginal elders etc. I got my back up.
Despite hitting all the usual points you’d expect, I was left feeling like it was more like a skin suit of a service than a genuine one.
Shouldn’t be to surprised I suppose. For Labor, and it is a Labor stronghold, it’s always about politics.

I did also note the only non white person there was the schoolgirl laying a wreath for a local school. But I’m sure all the immigrants will assimilate and value our traditions, right?

Can’t remember the title. The main character was German boy drafted into the Janissary corps, and his sister. Eventually they escaped to Switzerland.

The novel is “Caliphate” by Tom Kratman. He made it available for free on Amazon. A horrific warning.
The novel contrasts a character in 2006 with her great grandaughter in 2106 when the Islamics have taken over Germany.
Best bit was the awakening of the bleeding heart mother after her daughter was attacked, raped and mutilated by some Islamic animals.

I found it as disturbing as S.M. Stirling’s “Draka” novels and stories although certain individual Draka do have some admirable qualities. To some extent people are a product of the society they grow up in.

Twitter & TikTok are the first places I go to for news.

On twitter, I only look at my “following” tab & almost never go to the “for you” tab.
I can see what’s happening, a few different takes & a lot of links to quality analysis.

On TikTok, it’s the opposite. On the “for you” tab, I will see video of stuff going on globally that takes hours or days (if at all) by the legacy media sites.

TikTok censors, curates far less than any other site.
For example, today there was a pro-Pali video showing a line up of dead babies & toddlers.
Shocking no doubt.
Then in the comments when people ask “why are there differing levels of decomposition”.
Ie, the Pali’s had been collecting the bodies of the little ones for at least a couple of months for this planned event.
Sure it doesn’t show Israel in a great light.
At the same time, it shows the Pali’s to be the stage managers that they are.

I know someone who works at TikTok in Australia on the ecommerce side of the business.
It is all about engagement.
Then selling shit to people & clipping the ticket.

Channel 9 news has more engagement via TikTok than it does with people sitting down & watching it of an evening.
Sure, they might only be getting 30 second snippets on TikTok, not the full curated free to air news.
But Channel 9 news doesn’t care.
It’s engagement.

So if Channel 9 has some footage that 100’s of thousands of people want to see, it gets promoted in the feed, and more ecommerce opportunities are placed around that, which directly leads to more revenue going to Channel 9.

It’s not the boogie man it’s made out to be.
It’s the ecommerce beast that is slaying other social media platforms ecommerce revenue globally.

Perhaps.

And then there’s the provenance of the bodies. Exactly how did the children die? At who’s hand? If they have been “collected” from various locations, which locations?

Claims like this deserve forensic analysis. Good luck with that when Hamas is involved.

But Justin Smith on Sky will lap it all up as truth and then spew it forth when the Pallis are inevitably challenged. I thought the creature would have apoplexy last night.

From Indolent’s link:

At Microsoft, Inman Grant focused on issues such as cyber bullying, online safety for the family, and online reputation management, and was promoted to the role of Global Director for Privacy and Internet Safety.
From there, Inman Grant moved to Twitter as Director of Public Policy for Australia and Southeast Asia between 2014 to 2016, when the company was focused on building a ‘safer’ environment, rolling out new rules against online abuse and improvingtolerance and diversity

In other words, she was an abject failure at both organisations. Dorsey must have loved her though. And, naturally, our very own rolled gold termite, Turnbull.

And now she’s decided to boss others around and be paid to do it from the public purse. What a win for Australia.

Andrew Bolt:

It’s becoming scarily clear that a multicultural society needs heavier policing and more censorship.

Ian Kershaw, head of the Australian Federal Police, gave that game away at the National Press Club on Wednesday when supporting a ban on videos of the stabbing of Assyrian Christian Bishop Mar Mari Emmanuel.

People could be “inspired”, he said. Inspired? Who would see a bishop being stabbed and want more?

Sure, Kershaw might also mean Assyrian Christians could get angered into violence themselves. But that wasn’t the only sign of multicultural stress in Kershaw’s appearance alongside ASIO boss Mike Burgess. Burgess warned extremist Sunni Islam was the “principle” source of ideologically motivated violence, but quickly added Christian extremism was also a problem, given the riot after the bishop’s stabbing. One riot, and Christians get mentioned alongside Islamist terrorism?

You see the game exposed. Our government and security agencies not saying things that could offend Muslims, for fear of what a radical few might do.

The government can’t even mention our obscene levels of anti-Semitism without immediately deploring the almost invisible Islamophobia, too. Kershaw also grieved that “respected leaders of faith (he wouldn’t say which) tell us the interpretation of religion is being purposely distorted on social media” and “their communities and religious beliefs are tarnished and blamed for violent acts carried out by those who have been radicalised”.

Oh, blame social media again. Convenient. Face facts. Today’s terrorism sponsors include the Islamist leaders of Iran, Gaza and the Palestinian Authority.

In Australia, Sheik Taj al-Din al-Hilal, when he was our Mufti, called the September 11 terrorism “God’s work against oppressors”.

When John Howard created a Muslim Community Reference Group, a third of its 14 members supported Hezbollah, notorious for its terrorist wing.

Yes, Islam’s main leaders in Australia today seem far more moderate, yet not one condemned the Hamas terrorism of October 7 – the slaughter of 1200 Jews, the rapes, the kidnappings. Few, if any, have publicly challenged the Sydney hate preachers calling Jews “rats” and quoting holy scripture about killing them. No, safer to demand censorship of us all, and police and politicians – equally frightened – agree.

That Burgess and Kershaw said this at the National Press Club long lunch for Chardonnay sipping Leftist journos giving each other wristies tells you all you need to know. They are not serious about their jobs.

it is also to promote division. That footage will be repeated everywhere, but the comments won’t, and I guarantee you people will be insulting each other in the comments shortly. That is why the comments are not censored.

OTOH Chinese TikTok feeds for teens isn’t filled with influencer shit, but educational… Think short snippets of scientific stuff like Julius Sumner Miller used to do.

I don’t leave it to ANZAC DAY to remember my relatives nor others that served. As far as I know none of mine were killed. Mums cousin I remembered recently was wounded and wife’s grandfather gassed. I recall as a nipper going to town with granddad and him meeting some of his old serving mates along the street. The glint in their eyes remembering their fallen comrades. Mostly they were a lot younger than I am now. He died when I was 10 and stopped going to town when his mates had died too soon. I still remember the last old mate saying, ” not many of us left, Johnny”. Never saw him after that. Can still walk past that same spot about 62 years later and see two, what I thought were old men shaking hands in a bond that couldn’t be broken. There must have been something quite profound about the moment for me still to remember.

Yeah with the blessings of our elites. Herald Sun:

War heroes and army veterans have unequivocally slammed a group of pro-Palestine protesters who are set to rally at several city locations on Anzac Day.

Activist groups plan to camp out at the University of Melbourne on Thursday with sleeping bags and tents while they demand the tertiary institution “cut all weapons ties”.

They are also tipped to attend several other CBD locations throughout the morning.

The Unimelb for Palestine group wrote on social media: “Support the encampment, Anzac Day Our way. Solidarity with Gaza”.

RSL Victoria president Dr Robert Webster said the series of protests on Anzac Day was “disrespectful” to Australian war veterans.

“I have no issue with them having peaceful demonstrations, but what comes along with that is the right to respect other people,” Dr Webster said.

“They’re choosing to disrespect the veterans of this country who treat tomorrow as our national day, that to me is the issue.”

Dr Webster said he wanted to ensure that marches and Dawn Services were safe for everyone.

“It’s going to upset veterans if their day is interrupted.”

Vietnam Veterans Association of Australia Victoria president Bob Elworthy said Anzac Day should be “left alone”.

“They have the right to protest, but I don’t respect them protesting on Anzac Day,” Mr Elworthy said.

“Anzac Day is not about glorifying war, we’re paying respect to those who put themselves in harm’s way so that people can protest.”

War veteran Lucas Moon said protesters could choose a “better day” to express their message.

“If they have to protest, they can give their message peacefully and not disrupt the march and stand to the side,” Mr Moon said.

“These protesters forget the reason they can express their opinion and express their views is because of the men and women, who have defended their freedom.”

University of Melbourne Provost Professor Nicola Phillips said the university understood a small group of students would exercise their right to protest at its Parkville campus on Anzac Day.

“The university has a longstanding tradition of hosting an Anzac Day Dawn Service at the Parkville campus cenotaph,” Prof Phillips said.

“The university does not support the exercise of freedom of speech when the speech?undermines the capacity of individuals to participate fully in the university.

“Freedom of speech is respected and supported at the University of Melbourne and is central to our values and identity.

“The university welcomes debate and peaceful protest on campus, provided it does not extend to violence, threat or intimidation.”

Victoria Police said they were aware of at least three planned protests across town on Anzac Day and have boosted patrols for several city locations.

This includes the University of Melbourne in Parkville.

“Victoria Police closely monitors protest intelligence in the lead up to major events and days of significance,” a statement said.

“We are aware of a number of unrelated rallies and events occurring throughout the CBD across Thursday.

“We are well-prepared and resourced to respond should any protest activity require our attendance.”

Executive Council of Australian Jewry co-chief executive Peter Wertheim said: “The situation has been aggravated by deep moral confusion within university administrations in failing to understand in real life situations where free speech ends and abuse, harassment and intimidation begins.”

Teachers and School Staff for Palestine Victoria, who are organising some of the protests, remained adamant they would not disrupt services.

“We are not planning any actions to disrupt services. We are participating in an anti-war picnic and supporting an anti-war protest,” a group spokesman said.

“We are elevating an anti-war message (on Anzac Day), as standing against war is one of the most important lessons and traditions to have come out of World War I.”

What the actual phuck does that last sentence mean?
Our finest men and women who perished fighting for our country must be spinning furiously in their graves at this shit.
Those uni students should be identified like those Harvard arseholes and blacklisted.

What violent extremist ideology might that be in SW Sydney, one wonders? And, all under the geeky nose of Burgess and his band of internet snoops, all fully engaged in listening in to those dreaded Catholic right wingers.

Lewis, one of my favorite fiction writers, was also a shrewd culture commentator. He understood how fickle Americans could be and how easily we could fall into fascism if the right people came into power. 
He was also something of a prophet. How else could he have so accurately described the future Joe Biden in 1935?

“The Senator was vulgar, almost illiterate, a public liar easily detected, and in his “ideas” almost idiotic, while his celebrated piety was that of a traveling salesman for church furniture, and his yet more celebrated humor the sly cynicism of a country store.

Certainly there was nothing exhilarating in the actual words of his speeches, nor anything convincing in his philosophy. His political platforms were only wings of a windmill.”

Also noted cadets – Air Force and Navy especially, also plenty of teenagers marching with the SES and Ambulance. Four pipe bands, a helicopter and a P51 Mustang low pass with barrel roll. My eyes noted a couple of pairs of tradie legs up ahead and I wondered why they were wearing backpacks back-to-front……… of course then realised they each had a baby in a carrier and very lovely blonde wives with them.

From the Oz…

Bishop fears Wakeley stabbing could be ‘weapon’ to suppress free speech
The Assyrian bishop at the centre of an alleged terror stabbing says he does not want the attack be used as a “weapon” to suppress freedom of speech, declaring that he was concerned it could be hijacked to further others’ “political interest”.

Bishop Mar Mari Emmanuel said he was not opposed to the video of him being stabbed at his western Sydney church remaining live on social media platform X, because the right to freedom of speech and religion was “God given”.

Speaking directly to his supporters in an Anzac Day message, Bishop Emmanuel explained his reasoning for supporting the footage remaining live, arguing that removing it would be a threat to “human freedom and freedom of religion”.

The eSafety Commissioner, Julie Inman Grant, has launched legal action to force the social media platform, owned by Elon Musk, to hide the violent content.

Lawyers representing X (formerly Twitter) told the Federal Court on Wednesday that the Bishop Emmanuel would submit an affidavit backing the tech giant’s bid to host the video.

“I do not condone any acts of terrorism or violence,” Bishop Emmanuel said in the video.

“However, noting our God-given right to freedom of speech and freedom of religion, I’m not opposed to the videos remaining on social media.

“I would be of great concern if people use the attack on me to serve their own political interest to control free speech.”

Bishop Emmanuel said threats to free speech undermined “human identity and dignity” and he did not have the right to “cause harm” to a person who attacks his faith.

“The moment we oppress this very freedom of speech and religion we are losing the very human identity and dignity as well.

“As a Christian if someone, if another human being, does not believe in what I believe in, if another human being attacks my faith and attacks My Lord, that does not give me the right to go and cause harm to that person.

“This is inhumane at a human level, it is unacceptable.”

Bishop Emmanuel reaffirmed that he had forgiven the 16-year-old alleged to have attacked him, declaring that he will “always love this person”.

“The very dignity of the human being … regardless of what our race is, our colour, our gender, our faith and religious background,” he said.

“We are human beings, and as human beings we need to love and respect everyone.

“And at the same time, (for) that human identity to be always protected and preserved.

“It is the very identity which is God-given identity and that is to have the freedom of speech and freedom of expressing their religious beliefs, or whatever beliefs they have.”

Police arrested seven teenagers with alleged links to the attack at the Christ the Good Shepherd Church on Wednesday, executing 13 search warrants across NSW over fears of an imminent violent extremist ideology attack on the eve of Anzac Day.

X Corp’s barrister Marcus Hoyne told the court on Wednesday that Bishop Emmanuel, would file an affidavit stating he was “strongly of the view the material should be ­available”.

He also said the Federal Court’s decision to extend an injunction sought by the eSafety Commissioner to compel X to hide the content “might be futile” due to the material proliferating online.

Well said, Bishop Mar Mari. The good man has a firm grasp on the reality around his stabbing, unlike the spineless jelly-back Liberals. Oh and here’s a thought, perhaps Bishop Mar Mari could become leader of the federal Liberal Party? I might vote Liberal if Bishop Mar Mari assumed the Liberal leadership. The good bishop certainly has a better grasp of the principles of free speech than the current leader of the federal Liberal Party and his motley craven team.

One of the few cultural improvements seen in my lifetime is that Aussie men are perfectly comfortable with pushing a pram or carrying a baby in public. On the contrary, they are proud to do it.

When I was growing up, this was a very rare sight. It seems to signify that they are much more engaged with their kids from Day 1 than fathers were when I were a young-un.

Raids arrests ‘heavy-handed’: Muslim spokesman
Alexi Demetriadi

Wednesday’s terror-related raids in Sydney caught all by surprise, particularly leading Islamic leaders and organisations, who said they feared it would only further widen societal divisions, particularly against the Muslim community.
The Australian National Imams Council legal affairs adviser, Bilal Rauf, echoed concerns raised on Wednesday by the Lebanese Muslim Association, saying they too had been left in the dark.
“The safety of all of us is paramount,” he said.
“However, the sudden nature of the arrests came as a shock given that community organisations were not told of any issues nor were asked for any information.”
Mr Rauf criticised a “heavy-handed approach” towards the arrested teenagers – of the seven, five were charged on Thursday morning – particularly without the involvement of “elders, community organisations or social workers”.
“… (It) risks entrenching and promoting violence among disillusioned youth, alienating communities, and creating distress,” he said, saying the approach risked conflating religion and an ideology.
Mr Rauf said there was a “high-level of cynicism” in the manner in which police conducted the raids.
“It is concerning that before any engagement with community organisations or leaders, the authorities seemingly engaged with the media (first),” he said.
“ANIC and other organisations are hopeful of being provided with an understanding of the circumstances and that all parties are worked with for the wellbeing of all.”
The five teenagers will appear at a Children’s Court later this morning, but at the time of publication there matters had not yet been heard.

This one is really good. Not only does he appreciate all kinds of music, he loves comedian Bill Burr.

Black guy, 40s, grew up on hip hop in Ohio and is thrilled by the music that he missed. It’s sincere. He loves Dolly Parton singing ‘Jolene’ and let’s not get started on ‘Ode to Billie Joe.’ Floyd, Zeppelin, Elvis, Traffic – he loves it all

I’d never heard of Bill Burr, but he is an absolute hoot. He has done some amazing shows about black and white people in the US, funny without being racist. His speciality is political incorrectness without actually being racist/sexist, just being factual.

You can get Polo’s link from the one below to Bill Burr.

Ok Jim. As long as you want to open the lines, stop, and convey this to your writers, referring to illegal invaders as migrants. I am sick and tired of you and those working for you adopting the words and phrases invented by the communists

and would refer that warning to the politicians and the many commentators in the media (including Sky) not to use other communist words like ‘renewables’ , ‘carbon’, ‘rainbow’ and the many others that have been hijacked by the left in all so-called debates.

Oh, and I noticed no decline in spectator numbers either!

The silent Australian majority gets bigger as the noisy anti-Australian minority gets louder and more abusive — especially on Anzac Day.

The outcome of the 2023 apartheid referendum reminds us that the radical minority can’t win elections with its nation-wrecking agenda.

And the more the trade union national government behaves like the radical lunatic fringe, the less popular it becomes at the ballot box.

Ben Roberts-Smith spotted at Perth Anzac Day dawn serviceBy Michael GenoveseBen Roberts-Smith was spotted sitting among dignitaries at Western Australia’s flagship Anzac Day dawn service at Kings Park.
It’s the first Anzac Day since the Victoria Cross recipient was found by a Federal Court Judge to have carried out or been complicit in the murders of four unarmed prisoners in Afghanistan.

The government has previously said the civil defamation finding was not enough to strip Roberts-Smith of his military decorations, which he was wearing today.
The Perth-born former soldier’s display at the Australian War Memorial in Canberra last year had a new 84-word plaque installed next to it to acknowledge the court’s finding that he was a war criminal.
Robert-Smith is currently appealing his defamation loss.

Hidden side of a cheeky Pom who became an ANZAC

By David Miles in today’s ‘The Daily Telegraph’ –

He was an Englishman but the ANZAC hero John Simpson traversed our land more than most Aussies and his sense of humour was as cheeky as any larrikin born here.

Remembered for bringing the Gallipoli wounded to safety on his donkey, before his own death on 19 May, 1915, age 22, John Simpson was a man who “knew no fear”.

I read SBS is joining in on the Musk hate- as Tom said he has been identified as a tribal enemy so the Australian chapter of the Demonratic Party is mobilising. Does anyone watch SBS these days?

I watch it only once a year, when they televise the Eurovision Song Contest. I used to make up a spreadsheet for the marking part of the contest and would later look at who gave what scores to whom. It was most interesting when there were professional panels scores from each country and then the public phoning in their choices. I’ve lost interest in it the last few years though might watch it again this year.

I joined the Labor Party in 1979, while still at school.

The negative coalition which made up the No Aircraft Noise Party—Tories, Trotskyists and political opportunists—were united only by their vehement hatred of Labor.

There is overwhelming evidence that spending on public infrastructure has a positive impact on private sector growth.

I have always been a strong advocate for a pro-active, efficient and dynamic public sector.

When those critics of Labor’s equity programs spoke about `all of us’, there was an implied imagery of a nation of Anglo-Celtic, middle-class nuclear families. The bigots who criticise programs aimed at the special needs of sections of our community ignore the fact that there is not equality of opportunity across class, gender, sexual preference and ethnicity..

I am therefore confident that the present Leader of the Opposition, Kim Beazley, will lead Australia into the next century as the next Labor Prime Minister.

What a foetid brew of envy, hate and mongness, never learnt a thing, and forgot none of it.

SMH lifts the lid ever so slightly.
Magistrates aren’t available on weekends in Dubbo for bail hearings.
Why?
Because most magistrates in regional centres are long gone by Friday afternoon, back to where they live.
Maybe if magistrates lived in the community they’d have a different mindset.

JC, it’s nothing to do with the stabbing. It’s all about the left trying to regain control of Twitter as it was before Elon Musk bought it.

Lefties have figured out Musk is an alpha male billionaire like Trump so he and Twitter must be destroyed as they are a threat to the left’s control of the political narrative.

First, the victim was a Christian and a clergyman to boot therefore not from the designated victim class according to our masters. Second, the stabber declared it right there and then why he did it therefore record of the whole incident must be wiped from public consciousness in order to save the attacker who is from a designated victim class.

How did I do?

Anzac Day: Women experience gendered disadvantages in the ADF, new research finds
By grace baldwin

  • Breaking news reporter
  • 7:51PM April 24, 2024

Women in the defence forces and female veterans experience gender disadvantages due to a “highly masculinised culture”, new ­research has revealed.
A study from Flinders University has found the experiences of women in the ADF are “largely invisible”, with researchers calling upon Anzac Day commemorations to specifically acknowledge the contributions of women.

Significant gender challenges included misogyny, sexual harassment and assault, and systemic failures to recognise women’s specific health needs – all as a result of being less valued than men.
It was also found women continued to experience such disadvantages after leaving the service, with feelings of invisibility as a woman veteran in the civilian world causing long-term negative impacts.
These included a higher suicide rate for female veterans and a ­pattern of veteran transitioning programs being less effective for women.

Women accounted for about 20 per cent of ADF personnel but the public “still have a dominant image of veterans as men”. “One woman in our study noted that when she marched at an Anzac Day event, someone asked: ‘Are they your dad’s medals?’” she said.

Veteran Cherisa Pearce, who began her army career in 1994 and now a fierce advocate for veteran affairs, said the findings “do not surprise me in the slightest”. She said she endured years of gross sexual misconduct from men.
She had seen the community of female veterans grow over the years, but support services tailored to them had not grown at the same rate. “But I’m really impressed the Department of Veteran Affairs now knows that women have had a different experience in the army compared to men,” she said. “They really want to make a difference.”

People are terrified of the Muz. Over the years they have seen knifings around the world. Heads cut off, throats slashed, rapes, abductions, hijacking … London Bridge, Martin Place, Bataclan, Melbourne, Egypt, Syria, Israel.. the list is endless. All for insulting Izlam.
All this works on a deep level. It is the subconscious. Say the wrong thing and you can be killed, suddenly and unexpectedly. It is why it has gone from a bunch of ragtag desert camel herders to a quarter of the world.
In sense this terror is brilliant. It allows the other Muz to be nice and sympathetic, victims… The press, politicians, Universities and even the coppers are terrified.

Good to hear that VC Keith Payne has expressed support for BRS. Watched the march & thought that reps from Special Forces and SAS abut sparse. Not surprised, given that they have received so much negative stuff from both the media and current military hierarchy.

Attached large Aussie flag to our farm gate with bunches of rosemary on either side.

Lousy time at the moment, dealing with favourite steer who is painfully lame. Cant get him 1km away to our yards & crush for proper examination – so vet has just guessed at structural injury. Been nearly 4 weeks now & slow improvement. Always hard to know when to curtail further suffering. He is eating well (damn good lucerne hay – so he should!) but still not wanting to put weight on one leg. Have now noted a typical horn injury on the inside of his leg, making us suspect our 1& 1/2 tonne bullock (who dislikes the steer) has chucked him in the air and caused the injury.

…none of which seemed to have any clue about stabby-jihaddy boy or stabby-adjacent suspects. Or, if they did, were aiding and abetting them to evade detection.
If there are taqqiyas enabling terrorism, then they too should be hauled in for questioning, i don’t give a damn of they’re “elders”. And conspicuous compassionistas should be removed from the public payroll, if their “social work” foments anti-social outcomes.

The Twitter/X bunfight has zero to do with the actual stabbing in the church.
It is all about trying to ensure that future incidents of this type can be carefully filtered.
Julie Imam Grant is looking for D-Notice type powers to gag publication of inconvenient events. The only difference is that the premise will be “National Cohesion” rather than “National Security”.
The real snag with this incident was that it was live streamed so the cat was well and truly out of the bag before the Safety Kommissar got wind of it.
In the Brave New World envisaged by Julie Imam Grant, the footage of the stabbing would have been buried and we would have only seen film of “Islamaphobic riot by far right Christians”.
