~ YES, I CAN BE longwinded in these things, so today, a short one.
A sad realization I’ve had over the past few weeks– Oleg Atbashian (The People’s Cube) was a former Soviet propagandist, he’s also an author, essayist, satirist, and graphic artist. He came to America for freedom.
Like many former Soviet dissidents come to the West, his reception was mixed– now, he’s a positive threat to the new Sovietization of the West. The same happened to Jamie Glazov’s parents, at Marxist-deluded Dalhousie University in Halifax, NS, Canada. Don’t reveal the ugly truth of the Worker’s Utopia!
Now, under the politically correct, the corrupt establishment, politicized academia & media, we are going Soviet. Soft Soviet, with a smug smile and an iron fist. This devolution has been underway for almost a century, under many guises, and stages. Coercion of thought and behaviour is the ultimate goal.
Symptoms, just on Campus? Tribunals, trial by media & mob, the politics of personal destruction, radicalization of politics, thought-police, a quiet terror keeping people quiet & scared. Wrong-thinkers versus the Party Truth. Spying & tattling & surveillance. All must be sacrificed for the utopia.
We have become a Soviet-style prison, just waiting for the final bars & locks to be fitted. Ironic, no? Tragic, too.
“In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, not to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is…in some small way to become evil oneself. One’s standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to.”
A Gift To Us All
And patiently, year by year, Oleg & his amazingly insightful website has been warning us of the risks ahead, from his life under the Soviet nightmare. We should all be grateful, and aware of his work.
Go read his blog. Read his book “Shakedown Socialism“. Buy his merch. I’m not saying he’s always right in everything said & done and thought– but that his angle is unique, deeply insightful, and hard-won by bitter experience.
Heed his warnings. Tragically, he’s turned out to be right, so far.
“A war is something that can be won by one side or the other and there is no path for ISIL to actually win against the West,” Trudeau said. “They want to destabilize, they want to strike fear. They need to be stamped out.”
~ Justin Trudeau, 2016 ~

IT IS AD 9, AND a shaken Caesar Augustus, first Emperor of the Roman Empire, has been roaming the halls of his palace for days, weeping with rage, banging his head on the wall, and shouting “Quintili Vare, legiones redde!“ (‘Quintilius Varus, give me back my legions!’)
What military disaster could so shake Rome?
After all, The deadliest military machine in the ancient world was the Roman legion. Armor & shield, gladius sword, bow, spear, giant catapults and crossbows, simple tactics– when it was ready to fight, it was like one great beast, inexorable, sometimes winning against odds of ten to one, or more.
Gladiator: The Roman War Machine At Work
However.. 35 000 Roman legionaries stretched out over a muddy 10 miles in marching order through the towering and crowding-in Germania’s Teutoburg forest? Under damp and misty September weather, and a threatening Fall storm? Not ready.
Legate Publius Quinctilius Varus heads up three veteran legions, XVII, XVIII and XIX– with newer auxilliaries alongside– deep along a forest track into Northern Germany, toward Winter fortifications. The Legate believes his forces so strong, why bother sending scouts out?…
Then, out of the mist, they came.
Countless lightly-armed German tribesmen, led by Arminius (Hermann), a Germanic Roman-educated officer, ambush both sides of the legion column at once, chopping the great army train into sections– and the killing begins. Roman blood and bodies fall everywhere. The Roman strength in prepared battle has been turned to weakness by careful ambush.
One legion somehow fortifies itself through the hellish night. The next morning, a desperate escape attempt– fails. The storm and rain make Legion bows useless, and their shields waterlogged. General Varus suicides on his sword. Archaeological remains tell the final tale– endless Roman remains and armour and all the cast down panoply of war.. mingled with relatively few fallen German tribesmen.
15000-20000 Romans die, the rest go down to slavery. The stream of regular reports to Augustus Caesar cease, there is only.. silence.
Everything Old Is New Again
We are like the Romans: proud, powerful, dangerous. Modern political Islam is like the Germanic warriors: fighting their war in their way, not ours. It’s like boxing with fog, or nailing down Jell-O.
Our politicians, police, and militaries have inadequate responses to this very old and faceless front-less Uh-What-Direction-Do-I-Shoot-Sir? form of paramilitary terror-warfare. For a while, we chased baddies around in the deserts and hills of Afghanistan and Iraq; now, America and her terrorist-allies are asploding Syria to hell and back. Is that it?
This is a new kind of ancient war: olden barbarian/ Medieval hit-and-run, but with our weapons & tactics & communications. Maximum results, minimal efforts. The Scots and Welsh employed a lot of these tactics against the invading English in the 13th and 14th centuries. This is what made William Wallace a great warrior, if not a great general of armies, or national leader. This is how the American Minutemen fought the British regular army. Keep it asymmetrical.
1st Generation War? That’s your Napoleonic-style line-up men and shoot– defeated by heavy artillery, and machine-guns.
Second gen? Fortifications, an orderly & organized artillery of all the things, then march in– which was wrecked by tanks and airplanes.
3rd Generation warfare? Germany’s WW2 Blitzkrieg: ignore the front lines, maneuver, and cut the enemy off– wrecked by?…
..4th gen warfare. Olden-tyme guerrilla tactics with modern technology and tactics and communications, non-state warfare, no ‘front lines’.
Wake Up!.. Coffee Is Smelly
Super-heroic tough-talker Canucki PM Justin Trudeau? A 2nd/ 3rd Generation war thinker: “A war is something that can be won by one side or the other and there is no path for ISIL to actually win against the West”…. They want to destabilize, they want to strike fear. They need to be stamped out.” [my emPHASis]
Hm. Good luck with that, dude. Really. This from a former part-time drama teacher.
America’s been trying Justin’s way since about 1963– before he was born, and placed in a manger– with little to show for it on five major occasions except corpses, frustration, and increasingly wealthy military-industrial complexes. PM Justin Trudeau, his advisors, and their equivalents in Western governments must unlearn what they think they know, or be doomed to an endless cycle of repeat and fail and weep. 4th Generation War is now here.. and everywhere.
Where We Actually Are
Truth be told, our huge force-against-force olden-style 1800s or 1900s warfare just doesn’t work very well when the other team refuses to show up, and won’t play by the old or accepted rules.. and when they vanish like morning dew if you try to force the matter. We’re still armed and organized to fight WW2, or the long-feared 1980s Soviet attack on Western Europe. That’s why terrorism is so very effective in 2016: our states actually need other states to fight with.. not an alphabet soup of terror-groups.
The front is everywhere possible and imaginable: nobody is safe, and all those radicalized mosques, and Muslim ghettos in our major cities are recruiting grounds and potentially hostile occupied territory, war-wise. Mass migration? Another facet of 4th gen warfare! Thus, the Euro-elite “Migrant Problem” is a self-imposed war, with collaborating leaders effectively attacking their own people.
Likewise the Islamofascist terrorism of all kinds, boundless cruelty, supreme confidence versus our cowardice and cringing. See? Atypical warfare, 2016-style– and we imported this: why do we continue to do so?
Leaders For The Fail!
Our elites? Clueless, pandering, state-worshipping nitwits who cannot see what is right in front of them, and keep trying things that can’t work– or which will enslave their own populations in “peace & security”. The Belgium attacks just don’t fit any of their politically correct categories.
Says Robert Spencer:
“It’s time for the governments of Britain, France, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, and more to fall….. The existing governments are responsible for policies that have turned Europe into a war zone, and that war is just beginning. The political and media elites have failed Europe and the free world, and put Europe on a course toward civil war and bloodshed unseen on the continent since the days of Hitler.”
Love them or hate them, their no-nonsense light rapid response, strict airline security, layered internal protection (including that infamous but fairly successful anti-bombing wall) are all defences against 4th generation warfare. It`s not perfect, but there is no perfect defence against guerrilla warfare.
Back Out, Canada
Should Canada keep dropping bombs & fighting in Afghanistan? No. Afghanistan is quickly reverting to what it was– a failed state ripe for terror, with mostly tribal law & order.
Likewise, our “helping” in the U.S. wrecking Syria in the puppet-theatre of American conquest for power and oil– sorry, ‘Arab Spring’– wasn’t stopping, preventing, or stopping DAESH/ ISIL/ ISIS, or local Viet Cong-type attacks. This is Jihad, and the end game our enslavement under Sharia Law: the whole thing, big-time. The Russians get it: the best answer on the terrorist’s own ground is not apologies or hand-wringing or submission, but BOOM.
The End Game: Submission Eurabia
The To-Do List Is Long
This is a religious terror war exploding all around us, and we’re currently caught like General Varus, or like the Americans in bombers and tanks eternally attacking phantoms in the Vietnamese jungles. Or Somalia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria…
We need to Israel-up: walls, strict serious airport & airline security; everybody trained and willing & ready to fight; prison, deportation, de-gehettoization; subvert the subversion; use special ops and counter-infiltration, and especially of mosques and false-front groups. Local vigilance, and reportage; preparation for treachery from our own side. Protect our leaders and government locations– i.e., war everywhere, against everyone.
We need to harden ALL our critical infrastructure, and imagine (within reason) All The Things which are potential targets: internet & hackable infrastructure, the power grid, communications, military site, energy, water & food supplies, industry, transportation, statiums and large gathering places, all of it. In America and elsewhere, Muslim groups have already been nosing around water supplies and crucial power grid components directly, and via cyber-attacks. Halt all Muslim migration until we have a way to sort them out. Be willing to imprison potential terrorists.
We have a great deal to (re)learn, and a lot of blood and misery and mistakes ahead of us. Civilians will have to understand that they are the front-line, along with police and military and trained professionals. This war is not going to end quickly– and it is a war. There will be casualties, no matter how ready or prepared we are– and right now, we’re not very.
The Doom Is Strong
The alternative is not The Same Old Just Like Before, but ending up like Publius Quinctilius Varus and the lost legions of Rome– and like Augustus, wondering how and what had happened. Within 4 centuries, the barbarians were banging on the doors of Rome herself, as the Empire decomposed and fell into ever smaller pieces.
Us? We don’t have anything like that long, because they are already here, and more pouring in every day. The alarm clock is ringing: time to awaken from our pleasant dreams.
2016 Europe under siege is bursting with lessons for Europe, and North America: if we have the eyes and the will to see it. Our freedom, and all we have known and love and lived for and built, stands at risk. ~
~ IT VERY MUCH APPEARS that the Belgian airport bombers wanted radioactive material for a dirty bomb, or even (possibly) to cause a Chernobyl-style meltdown at a Belgian reactor complex only an hour’s drive South-East from Brussels.
Observant officials got suspicious, so the terrorists scattered, and ran with the airport plan, but it also looks like they had inside help at the nuclear plant. Police found the surveillance video of the nuclear plant on a raid of one of the terrorist’s flats.
Just For Example
It wouldn’t take much for terrorists to wreak untold havoc, say, in London – with just basic explosives and some nuclear waste. Such is the gruesome reality of the dirty bomb. It’s a non-nuclear bomb which invisibly spreads deadly radioactive particles over everything nearby, via wind and explosive forces. Says the BBC:
“It would wreak panic in built-up areas, see large areas contaminated and closed off and result in long-term illnesses such as cancer, caused by the dispersed radioactive material attacking living cells.”
Cancer and radiation poisoning are the longer-term (days and months) effects– shorter term, utter panic & chaos, people fleeing the region, refugee problems, looting, opportunistic violence and Jihad, overwhelmed emergency and medical services, local martial law, and contaminated parts of the city cordoned off for months, even years, until remediation and reconstruction could take place.
Multiply By.. 1000?
Of course, setting off an entire reactor into a nuclear melt down is a horror and disaster of Biblical proportions. Whole regions, thousands of square miles, could become unlivable, and radioactively quarantined for decades, like Chernobyl, or the exclusion zone around Fukushima. The wind currents of the atmosphere carry the fallout from there, all over the local regions, then around the world.
Just how many opportunities exist for such demonic mass-slaughter schemes by radicalized terrorists, for either dirty bombs or melt-downs? Wait for it.
There are 61 commercially operating nuclear power plants with 99 nuclear reactors in 30 states in the United States. Thirty-five of these plants have two or more reactors.
And many many many more all around the industrial world. Even worse, the internets is still innocently, carelessly, and naïvely full of immense amounts of potentially dangerous and revealing information about many such matters. I won’t link to any of it, but it’s all out there for the evil-minded and malevolent web-surfer.
And no, dear authorities, I’m not a terrorist. I’m trying to be one of the good guys in this war, mmmkay?
Time To Wake Up
In a mostly peaceful, old-fashioned warfare world, you can have nuclear plants for power generation all over the place, because the battlefront is usually far away. This is no longer that world. Welcome to the skin-crawlingly unpredictable world of asymmetrical guerrilla warfare, where no matter how evil or murderous or unthinkable your plan, you’ll do it for ‘the cause’.
Even this. And something nuclear-related almost took place in Belgium just last week, only if the authorities been less vigilant.
Get Busy, Folks
Let’s write to our elected officials, local and regional governments, and make sure that all our reactors around the world– big, small, research/ university, whatever– are all properly manned, supervised, securely protected, and kept safe from inside or exterior ideological threats, given just how horrible the alternative could be.
Also, consider being radiologically prepped (Google or YouTube search it), especially if you live near, or downwind of a nuclear plant. ~
THE POINT OF TERRORISM is.. terror: submission, paralysis, fear, to control & change you inside. Politics, warfare, & conquest by other means.
You acquiesce to increasing levels of “peace and security” fascism at home, to supposedly prevent internet & mosque made Islamofascists from home and abroad. And you’re never allowed to forget or think otherwise than: You. Are. Helpless.
So, welcome to the new normal, and the atypical and strange form of war, where you are on the front line of the Jihad. Your ordinary life– but suddenly with added machine guns, bombs, soldiers & police, and ever more safety-rape at security checkpoints. This is, of course, daily life in much of the world, now coming home to roost.
These terror attacks are not going to stop, although thankfully some are prevented by the authorities, despite themselves— though one does wonder if such terrorism isn’t found useful by advocates of a disarmed populace in a prison-state. You know, “useful crises” for the dark powers within the West, and the Jihadi threat-makers, too.
You can be safe, but not free. Or, you can be free, but not safe.
This truism is our life in 2016, and we made it. It’s founded on the fact that Baby Boomers and later could not did not or would not have replacement levels of children; that we imported people to replace our own missing kids; BUT (and thus the Canadian & more general problem) after Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau removed the educated-immigrant requirement, we increasingly allowed in welfare-ready, criminal, and under-educated people, including non-Westernized Muslims (and others) who brought their radical problems and ideas from home to here.
Canada In The Bullseye?
So far, useful-idiot Canada has been part safe-house, and part money-bags for radical terror groups. Our naive and well-intentioned “Multiculturalism” was supposed to mean cool new restaurant menus, and neighbours with exotic outfits and recipes at FolkFest. That’s because to us, faith and politics and Big Ideas and even our entire society are no longer to die for.. that’s the government’s job, now. Yet we import (or create) serious radicals who can operate well below our mental and political radar, people who are gladly misusing Canada’s nice reputation and passports and smug cluelessness.
Moreover, the informal hawalabanking system which allows money to be brokered all over the world from Canada? It means that some families are getting extra money from their Canadian relatives.. and so are some groups who like killing, bombing, raping, and decapitation. Terror gets saddle-bags of cash sent to them from Western supporters and mosques, and there’s no easy way to track it. It might– just might– mean that Canada will only be targeted by homegrown solo or small-group Jihadis, and not ISIS bombing a major airport, big city, or some mass gathering of people.
Who To The Rescue?
Since we’re all unofficially evil & dangerous, even law-abiding peaceful citizens in Canada can go to jail if they shoot or stab a home invader, or, one presumes, a bomb-strapped terrorist. Don’t worry! we’re told, polices will protect you!
This is a fraudulent promise, in the case of Jihadi-suicide terrorism, since the moment the scumtards start shooting or/ and then explode is the moment you’d like really some protection. When seconds count.. the police are only minutes away! I’m not saying that a gun-toting citizenry can solve everything, but nobody really can– even a total police state, overflowing with “Pe-E-e-eace & Se-E-e-ecurity“, and where everybody gets lightly raped at the airport.
Never forgets (until next time)! Roll out the fraidy-cat hashtags, avatars and animated GIFs! Signal that virtue! Lower the flags and light the monuments! Much sads! So feels! Tweet your defiances! SHHHTerror-nausea risingSHHHH….
What’s to be done, Binks? Be proactive, prepared, and not a victim. Because I said so, dammit! You. Are. NOT. Helpless.
In Canada, and gun-lite Europe, everybody CAN and SHOULD have (1) An Every Day Carry (EDC) kit, (2) An Emergency Plan, (3) A Way To Help, and (4) Some Self-Defence Skills. Even if our modern airport faux-security theatre undercuts some weapon-options, you don’t have to be totally helpless if dangerous, terrorist, weather crisis, or other emergency situations arise.
1. Your Very Own EDC
(1) Google or YouTube search for ‘Every Day Carry’ (EDC)– and most items are detailed on Amazon.com, so you can buy them more affordably on eBay. Every responsible, mature, and thus safety/ self-defence minded person from 8-year old on up should have some basic daily carry items.
Your EDC, for example? A rescue knife, keychain, good flashlight, a paracord bracelet, a mini-BIC lighter, a tiny Swiss Army knife (with tweezers & a pen), emergency whistle, small multitool, a smartphone, a watch or other time-piece, pen and paper (you can even get self-defence pens), some water, an LED micro-light, a firesteel. In the U.S., you should also have a punchy small gun (.40 or 45ACP), and your concealed-carry license, where possible.
Then.. there’s yer plastic raincoats, emergency mylar blankets, a compass, power-bars, a small backpack, tissues, some Ibuprofen, a bandana (for slings, wounds, and many other uses)….
There’s an EDC out there for every budget, level of readiness and complexity, and you can even colour-coordinate if you wish, ladies and gentlemen. Make an EDC keychain for each person in your family, and one for the car. Start small, build up, and switch items depending on your daily needs and travel.
Ask yourself: if you were ditched in a snowstorm, on a sinking ship, or caught by a hurricane, or some other emergency, how happy would you be to have these items? How much would you be willing to pay to have them on your belt, in your coat, or stocked in your purse?
2. Get Me Outta Here!
(2) Fun With Escapism. Play this video game in your head, wherever you are. If a bad guy or group of them were to come from this or that direction around me, where could I and my loved ones escape/ run to/ hide from bullets or other violence? Practice this mentally at home, the mall, supermarket, parking lot, airport, tourist location, nightclub, school or university, wherever.
Always try to have a plan A, B, and C– such options keep you from just panicking, and freezing in place. Think: I must be where the danger ISN’T.. and move away if it’s coming close. Don’t be conspicuous, or needlessly heroic– be bland and grey and unremarkable.
Americans: if you have your conceal carry license, use it and carry your sidearm, at very least to create a safe-zone or an escape route for yourself and others. Usually, the police will not be rushing in to save you any time soon. That’s not their job.
3 & 4. Help Out, Self Defence
(3) Do you have a basic First Aid/ CPR course? Could you operate one of those emergency Defibrillator machines you’ll sometimes see around? Could you stanch a wound, secure a broken neck, or use a tourniquet? Get those skills, now, when it’s not urgent. Sign up the office, or the whole family, or the whole school.
Re: helping– Beware that rushing right in after a bombing may be super-dangerous, because some bombers will plant delayed secondary explosives, for when they think the ambulance, police, and firemen have arrived– for even more horrible and costly collateral damage. Do what you can, be cautious, but a dead or wounded you is no use to anybody in need of help.
(4) Basic men or women’s self defence courses are available almost anywhere. MMA/ Brazillian Jiu-Jitsu, Karate, Tae-Kwon-Do, Krav Maga clubs are all over the place, and give you health, confidence, and some self-defence skills at the same time. A little weapon-training will help you fight with various weapons, or improvise, or know how to defend yourself (and others) against different attacks.
Almost Done, Ye Windbag Elf?
The middle class and upwards in Western Europe and much of North America have been generally safe, soft, and peaceful for almost three generations. We’ve enjoyed an extended local vacation from readiness, preparedness, living on the edge, thinking in an emergency.. because we’ve been mistakenly taught in the nanny state mental universe we live in that The World Is Safe, and if not, that Somebody Else Will Always Come Along To Save And Help Us.
A helpless, needy, compliant, disarmed & sheepish populace is ideal for those in power– but not the people themselves. Especially in emergencies.
This is naive at best, and grossly negligent and irresponsible at worst. The world isn’t really like that, so thank emergencies and bad people in this at least: we must be prepared as a minimum level of responsible adulthood. Sure it will cost some time and money and learning– but how much is your life or my life worth? That of our kids, grandkids, or neighbours?
Please keep learning up on those four starter-topics, via Google, YouTube, even Pinterest (and more here)– and pass the word on to others. We don’t have to either live in fear and terror, or in a prison-state.
Be free, and brave, and responsible with that freedom.
Except for the actual refugees from Syria, especially the persecuted ones– and peaceful integrated non-Jihadi immigrants: home you go. Second or third generation extremists? Pick a country, and go away from here.
Screw the EU parliament, Soros, Merckel, Erdogan, Warmongering Overlord Obama and his excellent Syrian Adventure, Trudeau, and all the other socialist globalist lunatics supporting this evil scheme of cultural overthrow and enslavement.
Screw us, too, for failing to bother to do the most basic thing required of all lifeforms, from the algae on up: reproduce. Then we import the kids we didn’t have or prevented or aborted, except the imports don’t all want to be like us, because we’re becoming soft, decadent, wimpy, and passive slaves of our stuff and our comforts and pleasures.
Set Europe free from this new chapter in the 14 centuries of The Book Of Jihad. Or else. Set it free from the grey faceless plotters and schemers and central planners who all have their brilliant dreams of taming and enslaving humanity forever.
No more free rides, rape-gangs, taharrush, crime, riots, assault, welfare Jihadis, no-go zones, poolside molestation, changing room assaults, deliberate thuggery, child & polygamous marriage, soft jihad, or any of it.
Send them home, now. Canada: only let in a few at a time, and if they won’t assimilate and obey the laws, and build up Canada– then send them home.
The PM of Hungary full transcript, Budapest speech by Prime Minister Viktor Orbán on 15 March, 2016.
“Salutations to you, Hungarian freedom, on this the day you are born!”
Ladies and Gentlemen, Compatriots, Hungarians around the World,
With a cockade sewn by Júlia Szendrey pinned to his chest, a volume of poems in his pocket, and the still thrilling experience of the Revolution in his head, these are the words with which the poet Sándor Petőfi welcomed the fifteenth of March in his journal. Salutations to you, Hungarian freedom, on this the day you are born! And today also, one hundred and sixty-eight years later, it is with unfettered joy, the optimism of early spring, high hopes and an elevated spirit that across the Carpathian Basin we celebrate – from Beregszász to Szabadka, from Rimaszombat to Kézdivásárhely: every Hungarian with one heart, one soul and one will.
Just as then in the decisive battles of the Freedom Fight, now also Hungarian hearts are cheered by the fact that we have with us a Polish legion. I welcome the spirited successors of General Bem: we welcome the sons of the Polish nation. As always throughout our shared thousand-year history, now, too, we are standing by you in the battle you are fighting for your country’s freedom and independence. We are with you, and we send this message to Brussels: more respect to the Polish people, more respect to Poland! Greetings to you. It is a sign of the shared fate of Poland and Hungary that another glorious revolution of ours – that of 1956 – was born between the Bem Statue and Kossuth tér in Budapest. It rose up with the unstoppable force of our glorious ancestors, and by the evening it had dragged the Soviet generalissimo out of his boots.
Ladies and Gentlemen,
By nature, Hungarians stand up for what is right when the need arises. What is more, they fight for it if needs be, but do not seek out trouble for its own sake. They know that they can often achieve more through patience than through sabre-rattling. This is why those like us are rarely given to revolutions. We have only gone down that path twice in one hundred and seventy years. When we did follow that path, we had reason to do so: we felt that our lungs would burst if we could not breathe in freedom. We threw ourselves into it, and once we had started a revolution, we did so in style. Modern European history has preserved both Hungarian revolutions among the glorious memories of the world: two blazing stars, two national uprisings bursting forth in 1848 and 1956 from Hungarian aspirations and Hungarian interests. Glory to the heroes, honour to the brave. Chroniclers have also recorded the revolution of 1918–19, but the memories of that period are not preserved on the pages of glory; indeed, not only are those memories written on different pages, but they appear in a different volume altogether. The 1918–19 revolution can be found in the volume devoted to Bolshevik anti-Hungarian subversions launched in the service of foreign interests and foreign ambitions; it features under the heading “appalling examples of intellectual and political degeneracy”. Yes, we Hungarians have two revolutionary traditions: one leads from 1848, through 1956 and the fall of communism, all the way to the Fundamental Law and the current constitutional order; the bloodline of the other tradition leads from Jacobin European ancestors, through 1919, to communism after World War II and the Soviet era in Hungary. Life in Hungary today is a creation of the spiritual heirs and offspring of the ’48 and ’56 revolutions. Today, as then, the heartbeat of this revolutionary tradition moves and guides the nation’s political, economic and spiritual life: equality before the law, responsible government, a national bank, the sharing of burdens, respect for human dignity and the unification of the nation. Today, as then, the ideals of ’48 and ’56 are the pulse driving the life force of the nation, and the intellectual and spiritual blood flow of the Hungarian people. Let us give thanks that this may be so, let us give thanks that finally the Lord of History has led us onto this path. Soli Deo gloria!
Ladies and Gentlemen,
Not even the uplifting mood of a celebration day can let us forget that the tradition of 1919, too, is still with us – though fortunately its pulse is just a faint flicker. Yet at times it can make quite a noise. But without a host animal, its days are numbered. It is in need of another delivery of aid from abroad in the form of a major intellectual and political infusion; unless it receives this, then after its leaves and branches have withered, its roots will also dry up in the Hungarian motherland’s soil, which is hostile to internationalism. And this is all well and good.
A decent person who raises their children and works hard to build the course of their life does not usually end up as a revolutionary. The right-thinking person who stands on their own two feet and has control over their future knows that upheavals and the sudden upending of the ordinary course of life rarely ends well. The person of goodwill who seeks a life of serene and peaceful progress knows that trying to take two steps at once leads to you tripping over your own legs, and instead of moving forward, you will land flat on your face. And yet these right-thinking people of goodwill, these upstanding citizens of Pest instantly rallied to the call of our revolutions, marching at the front, right behind the university students. They formed the backbone of the revolutions and freedom fights, and they were to pay with their own blood for the honour of the Hungarian people. Every revolution is like the people who make it. On the committee which oversaw order during the 15 March revolution, in the shadow of the colossal figures of Petőfi and Vasvári, we find the furrier Máté Gyurkovics, and the button-maker György Molnár. Our revolutions were led by respectable citizens, military officers, lawyers, writers, doctors, engineers, honest tradespeople, farmers and workers with a sense of national duty: Hungarians who embodied the nation’s best aspects, our homeland’s very best. Hungarian revolutionaries are not warriors for hare-brained ideologies, deranged utopias or demented, unsolicited plans for world happiness; in Pest you find no traces of the illusory visions of quack philosophers or the raging resentment of failed intellectuals. The revolutionaries of 1848 did not want to salvage stones from the ruins of absolutist oppression in order to build a temple to yet another tyranny; therefore the Hungarian revolution’s songs were not written in honour of the steel blade of the guillotine or the rope of the gallows. Our songs are not sung by lynch mobs or execution-thirsty crowds; the Pest revolution is not a hymn to chaos, revenge, or butchery. The 1848 Revolution is a solemn and dignified moment in our history, when the wounds of the glorious Hungarian nation opened once again. Springing from constitutional roots, it demanded the granting and return of the rights seized from and denied to the nation. It is exhilarating, but sober; ecstatic but practical; glorious, but temperate. It is Hungarian to the core.
Ladies and Gentlemen,
Three weeks before his death in battle, in his last letter to János Arany, Sándor Petőfi asked the following question: “So what are you going to do?” When we, his modern descendants, read this, it is as if he is asking us the same question. So what are you going to do? How will you make use of your inheritance? Are the Hungarian people still worthy of their ancestors’ reputation? Do you know the law of the Hungarians of old – that whatever you do should not only be measured by its utility, but also by universal standards? This is because your deeds must pass the test not only here, but also in eternity.
Ladies and Gentlemen,
We have our inheritance, the Hungarian people still exist, Buda still stands, we are who we were, and we shall be who we are. Our reputation travels far and wide; clever people and intelligent peoples acknowledge the Hungarians. We adhere to the ancient law, and also measure our deeds by universal standards. We teach our children that their horizon should be eternity. Whether we shall succeed, whether finally we see the building of a homeland which is free, independent, worthy and respected the world over – one which was raised high by our forebears from 1848, and for which they sacrificed their lives – we cannot yet know. We do know, however, that the current European constellation is an unstable one, and so we have some testing times ahead. The times in which we live press us with this question, which is like a hussar’s sabre held to our chest: “Shall we live in slavery or in freedom?” The destiny of the Hungarians has become intertwined with that of Europe’s nations, and has grown to be so much a part of the union that today not a single people – including the Hungarian people – can be free if Europe is not free. And today Europe is as fragile, weak and sickly as a flower being eaten away by a hidden worm. Today, one hundred and sixty-eight years after the great freedom fights of its peoples, Europe – our common home – is not free.
Ladies and Gentlemen,
Europe is not free, because freedom begins with speaking the truth. In Europe today it is forbidden to speak the truth. A muzzle is a muzzle – even if it is made of silk. It is forbidden to say that today we are not witnessing the arrival of refugees, but a Europe being threatened by mass migration. It is forbidden to say that tens of millions are ready to set out in our direction. It is forbidden to say that immigration brings crime and terrorism to our countries. It is forbidden to say that the masses of people coming from different civilisations pose a threat to our way of life, our culture, our customs, and our Christian traditions. It is forbidden to say that, instead of integrating, those who arrived here earlier have built a world of their own, with their own laws and ideals, which is forcing apart the thousand-year-old structure of Europe. It is forbidden to say that this is not accidental and not a chain of unintentional consequences, but a planned, orchestrated campaign, a mass of people directed towards us. It is forbidden to say that in Brussels they are constructing schemes to transport foreigners here as quickly as possible and to settle them here among us. It is forbidden to say that the purpose of settling these people here is to redraw the religious and cultural map of Europe and to reconfigure its ethnic foundations, thereby eliminating nation states, which are the last obstacle to the international movement. It is forbidden to say that Brussels is stealthily devouring ever more slices of our national sovereignty, and that in Brussels today many are working on a plan for a United States of Europe, for which no one has ever given authorisation.
Ladies and Gentlemen,
Today’s enemies of freedom are cut from a different cloth than the royal and imperial rulers of old, or those who ran the Soviet system; they use a different set of tools to force us into submission. Today they do not imprison us, they do not transport us to camps, and they do not send in tanks to occupy countries loyal to freedom. Today the international media’s artillery bombardments, denunciations, threats and blackmail are enough – or rather have been enough so far. The peoples of Europe are slowly awakening, they are regrouping, and will soon regain ground. Europe’s beams laid on the suppression of truth are creaking and cracking. The peoples of Europe may have finally understood that their future is at stake: not only are their prosperity, their comfort and their jobs at stake, but their very security and the peaceful order of their lives are in danger. The peoples of Europe, who have been slumbering in abundance and prosperity, have finally understood that the principles of life upon which we built Europe are in mortal danger. Europe is a community of Christian, free and independent nations; it is the equality of men and women, fair competition and solidarity, pride and humility, justice and mercy.
This danger is not now threatening us as wars and natural disasters do, which take the ground from under our feet in an instant. Mass migration is like a slow and steady current of water which washes away the shore. It appears in the guise of humanitarian action, but its true nature is the occupation of territory; and their gain in territory is our loss of territory. Hordes of implacable human rights warriors feel an unquenchable desire to lecture and accuse us. It is claimed that we are xenophobic and hostile, but the truth is that the history of our nation is also one of inclusion and the intertwining of cultures. Those who have sought to come here as new family members, as allies or as displaced persons fearing for their lives have been let in to make a new home for themselves. But those who have come here with the intention of changing our country and shaping our nation in their own image, those who have come with violence and against our will, have always been met with resistance.
Ladies and Gentlemen,
At first, they are only talking about a few hundred, a thousand or two thousand relocated people. But not a single responsible European leader would dare to swear under oath that this couple of thousand will not eventually increase to tens or hundreds of thousands. If we want to stop this mass migration, we must first of all curb Brussels. The main danger to Europe’s future does not come from those who want to come here, but from Brussels’ fanatics of internationalism. We cannot allow Brussels to place itself above the law. We shall not allow it to force upon us the bitter fruit of its cosmopolitan immigration policy. We shall not import to Hungary crime, terrorism, homophobia and synagogue-burning anti-Semitism. There shall be no urban districts beyond the reach of the law, there shall be no mass disorder or immigrant riots here, and there shall be no gangs hunting down our women and daughters. We shall not allow others to tell us whom we can let into our home and country, whom we will live alongside, and whom we will share our country with. We know how these things go. First we allow them to tell us whom we must take in, then they force us to serve foreigners in our country. In the end we find ourselves being told to pack up and leave our own land. Therefore we reject the forced resettlement scheme, and we shall tolerate neither blackmail, nor threats.
The time has come to ring the warning bell. The time has come for opposition and resistance. The time has come to gather allies to us. The time has come to raise the flag of proud nations. The time has come to prevent the destruction of Europe, and to save the future of Europe. To this end, regardless of party affiliation, we call on every citizen of Hungary to unite, and we call on every European nation to unite. The leaders and citizens of Europe must no longer live in two separate worlds. We must restore the unity of Europe. We the peoples of Europe cannot be free individually if we are not free together. If we unite our forces, we shall succeed; if we pull in different directions, we shall fail. Together we are strength, disunited we are weakness. Either together, or not at all – today this is the law.
Ladies and Gentlemen,
In 1848 it was written in the book of fate that nothing could be done against the Habsburg Empire. If then we had resigned ourselves to that outcome, our fate would have been sealed and the German sea would have swallowed up the Hungarians. In 1956 it was written in the book of fate that we were to remain an occupied and sovietised country until patriotism was extinguished in the very last Hungarian. If then we had resigned ourselves to that outcome, our fate would have been sealed, and the Soviet sea would have swallowed up the Hungarians. Today it is written in the book of fate that hidden, faceless world powers will eliminate everything that is unique, autonomous, age-old and national. They will blend cultures, religions and populations, until our many-faceted and proud Europe will finally become bloodless and docile. And if we resign ourselves to this outcome, our fate will be sealed, and we will be swallowed up in the enormous belly of the United States of Europe. The task which awaits the Hungarian people, the nations of Central Europe and the other European nations which have not yet lost all common sense is to defeat, rewrite and transform the fate intended for us. We Hungarians and Poles know how to do this. We have been taught that only if you are brave enough do you look danger in the face. We must therefore drag the ancient virtue of courage out from under the silt of oblivion. First of all we must put steel in our spines, and we must clearly answer the foremost, the single most important question determining our fate with a voice so loud so that it can be heard far and wide. The question upon which the future of Europe stands or falls is this: “Shall we live in slavery or in freedom?” That is the question – give your answer!
Go for it Hungary, go for it Hungarians!

~ THESE DAYS (and since WW2, especially) railing away at politicians and various national leaders may feel good, but misses the point. The bullseyes lie elsewhere.
Prime Ministers Brain Mulroney, Jean Chretien, Paul Martin, Evil Steve Harper, and “Just Watch Me” Trudeau Jr. all had or have a certain amount of power, but long ago sold their souls to the powers behind them– of globalist, banking, and political elites, and the lies and half-truths and toxic tales they tell. Most world leaders that matter are on a leash, albeit of gold and studded diamonds.
Nonetheless, a lot of modern political leadership– like Blair, Obama, Trudeau, the unelected Eurocracy, and others, seem to be a specific hollow and unpleasant type. Perhaps it makes them more prone to be bullies, and sockpuppets, I dunno.
Got A Point, Binky?
A recent take-no-prisoners article by American Catholic flamethrower Ann Barnhardt (Diabolical Narcissism: GASLIGHTING) certainly seems to have the current pope down to a nicety– and the same inward evil seems present in a lot of other leaders, politicians, celebrities, and Social Justice Warriors and progressives in The Year Of Our Lord 2016.
Give her a read, and feel free to agree or disagree or differ– it was recently a free country after all, so the police won’t be by to round you up quite yet. Soon, perhaps.
And of course, anyone, no matter own ‘ordinary’ can be a malignant narcissist. They just get a lot worse the more power they have, and the more people they can hurt.
~ POLITICAL CORRECTNESS, or progressivism in words & thoughts & actions, is mass-delusion, and mass-denial. This is not that; things are not as they are, or seem; it is true that there is no truth; it is good that there is no good or evil. Logic says contradictories cannot both be true: but round squares, or living dead people, are nothing compared to the contradictions of the politically correct mind.
Cologne Germany had a very, um.. complicated.. New Year’s 2016, with some of their refugees. It got a little violent, and a little.. well, rapey, along with the partying and fireworks. Between 80-100 women were assaulted by between 800-1000 young men in organized groups, using fireworks as ground-attack and panic weapons, there in the shadow of the world-famous Kölner Dom cathedral of Saints Peter & Mary.
Ruh-roh! Nothing to see here, move along. All is well. What’s a few rumpled fraus & frauleins, ja? Can’t be accusing anybody of anything! Don’t want any hate or anything.
Eventually the police in Cologne got around to, well, a little actual policing.
Big Scary Ideas
So: for reasons known to the U.N., George Soros, Turkey, and other malevolent forces, various parts of the Western world are being filled with refugees from one of America’s destabilizing wars. Never waste a crisis? Heck! MAKE a crisis, then don’t waste it. The chickens are coming home to roost.
Except, these chickens are predominantly Muslims, with some actual refugees, but also a high percentage of unmarried men, and a small but dangerous minority of ISIS-Al Qaeda-Muslim Brotherhood name of the week bad guys, who’d happily like to bring mayhem, rape, pedophilia, plunder, and jihad to a little town possibly near you.
Beasts Sniffing For Blood
Back to Cologne & European refugee-dumping. Ever since the first waves of Muslims & Muslim Syrians arrived– some refugees, some not, some terror-minded, some opportunists and criminals, some not even from Syria, some affiliated with Jihadist terror-groups– there’s been a purely coincidental crime-wave. Theft, assault, harassment, rape, vandalism, mobs, and even a little game called ‘Taharrush’, or in English, mob acts of opportunistic mass sexual assault & theft against a chosen non-Muslim woman. Or, a thousand.
Bitches had it coming, though. Cologne imam Sami Abu-Yusuf: Women provoked sex attacks by ‘wearing perfume’ and being ‘half-naked’. Then he said he didn’t say it, but it remains said, and is probably his real opinion. So: German women raped for not acting & dressing like Middle Eastern women. Gotcha. SUBMIT!, says Islamo-Mafia. Nice women you gots there– same if anything wuz to happen to them.
In Canada, Supreme Overlord & Emperor Justin I has decreed it will be so here in the Great White North Of Justin, though his dictate was slowed up by reality, calls for background-checks, and a Canadian public not willing to undergo what they’ve seen in Italy, Germany, Britain, Greece, Sweden, and most other other places where the Refugee Storm has come ashore, and begun to wreck everything (I think, quite deliberately— so we will all need & demand more ‘Peace & Security’, surveillance, law and order, less freedom, more cops and big government). Globalism has cool ideas for our futures.
The politically correct deeply and irrationally presuppose that things and people and events are not what they are, such are actually what political correctness SAYS they are. If you see a penguin, but political correctness disbelieves in penguins, so you are not seeing a penguin. It’s as simple and obvious as that, stupid. Look! A Penguin! No it isn’t!
The response of the authorities, from police on up to Prime Ministers? Denial. Weasel-words. Looking the other way. Laughable and bizarre make-believe. Warnings about ‘backlashes’. Blaming the victims (the real kind, not the feminist kind)– just like in 2013 when Swedish authorities were photographed ticketing cars which had been torched en masse in a giant car-b-que by non-specified generic ‘Youths’ the previous night. Why tickets? For the expired meter-readings, of course.
Just Listen And Believe!
The Christmas 2015 refugee narrative (according to one TV spot I saw): “So, you know, Mary & Joseph & baby Jesus were refugees” (they weren’t); “and the imported ‘Syrians’ are all holy and special refugees” (they’re not), “and they are downtrodden and victimized and you should feel guilty if you don’t open your home to 50 of them right away, you privileged white Western hypocrites.” (we aren’t) And if that’s not a mile-high teetering house of cards and lies and half-truths, I don’t know what is.
Binky’s free advice, worth every penny: Trust, but verify. Assume the best, always prepare for the worst. Trust in the Lord, but lock up your house. Protect yourself, loved ones, community. If someone turns out to be the real deal, welcome them. If not, report them, and call for their deportation, after suitable imprisonment. You may well have to fight the authorities for justice to be done.
Canada’s Big Heart
Most people are willing to help actual refugees– especially Syrian & Iraqi Christians, and the Yazidi group, who have suffered real persecution, rapes, and mass-murders due to the current cycle of American War Without End & profiteering in the Middle East, and the open support of Jihad by the Obama Administration.
What people don’t want, and I hope will eventually fight back against, is the importation of who knows what, with heaven knows what actual ID and actual motivations, into our small towns and cities, where some of may them choose to get their Cologne on, like wolves amongst sheep because we live in mostly peaceful and orderly societies, where threatening to randomly decapitate other people is mostly frowned upon, however Muslim it may be.
Canada Obeys.. Turkey?
Finally, as Ezra Levant asks, exactly what kind of tin-plated doofus is our Prime Minister Selfie to allow an Islamofascist and anti-Christian like Turkish leader Erdogan to export Syrian refugees (previously living safely in Turkey) to Canada and elsewhere, according to his say-so, and selection? A very special kind.
This 2015-16 refugee rush is a violation of our sovereignty, safety, due process, and an insult to all the actual refugees and honest immigrants who have waited years, even decades, for the process to grind along, and approve their cases. Whoever is running this refugee circus seems to have found an obedient lapdog in Mr. Trudeau, who doesn’t ask questions, and who seems to resent Canadians questioning his inspiring decisions.
Pundit and doom-watcher Mark Steyn has asked before, and it’s worth repeating again: are we willing to stand– let alone suffer or die– for our society, our civilization, our friends & family & children, ourselves? Or will we huddle around our glowing screens as the wolves outside howl and prowl ever closer.. while we seek a few more morsels of infotainment and distraction and false comfort, no matter the cost to the future? ~
