Home to many Congolese expatriates

Brussels police arrest 200 over Congo vote violence.

That title itself is extremely amusing. One of the zillion signs of the africanization of Europe. Read the news, it only gets more horrendously hilarious:

“Protesters in the former colonial power, home to many Congolese expatriates, threw Molotov cocktails at police cars, a police spokesman said. Shop windows and bus shelters were also smashed near the Congolese quarter.”

“Friday night’s riots in Brussels follow several days of tensions between police and anti-Kabila protesters, the Belga newswire says”

Absolutely the true spirit of “expatriates”. They all came to Belgium either work for multinational companies with fat paycheck or study in the universities as they are super smart. They got bored of their “expatriate” life and decided to give a piece of of their mind on the rigged election in their homeland Congo. I said attaboy! Who’s the colonial bitch now?

The limit of chutzpah

Recently Israeli government withdrew a series of TV commercials that aim to lure more Jews from US (with the biggest Jewish population) to the homeland Levant (second biggest Jewish population). It is understandable that Israel, in constant anxiety of the population war with the Arabs, would want all Jews back if possible. Such commercials should have no problem in easily touching the Jews in the States, who have always been very ethnocentric and supportive of Israel all along. But how come the commercials have to be pulled off all of sudden? Well, here is a brief description of those commercials:

“In one of the advertisements, Israeli grandparents sit in front of the traditional Hanukkah candelabra while speaking to their granddaughter on Skype. When they ask the child to name the holiday they’re celebrating, she says “Christmas.” In another, a napping father can’t hear his son’s calls of “daddy” and only stirs awake when he hears the word “abba” — Hebrew for father. A third, shows an emotional Israeli woman marking Israel’s Memorial Day and her non-Israeli partner unable to relate. The adds are all capped by the slogan: “They will remain Israeli, their children won’t. Help them come home.”

Obviously the explicit ethnocentrism made American Jews very uncomfortable. It’s recognized that Jews’ power in the States are inexorably formidable, more powerful than any other group. Without their influence, Israel would not survive and thrive. But explicit orthodox Jewish ethnocentrism seems not much shared among the American Jews, who have in fact in a large extent already began to mingle with different gentiles in the melting pot. This reminds me that there’s a widely known theory that American Jews were the ones who set the fire of leftism ablaze in the West in the 20th century. Ironically, now that the Israeli Jews came up with some explicit messages, which makes perfect sense for them, most American Jews still declared their loyalty to the holy grail of leftism once again. In some sense multiculturalism is one of the masterpieces by the Jews. But I never expect that they would turn their back when their own people advocate for ethnocentrism. For all I know, there’s no people more ethnocentric than the Jews.

I do, however, have a sense of compassion for Israel. Their worry about American Jewish population is quite reasonable and I admire their audacity in explicitly addressing their concerns. But I guess even chutzpah has a limit, as long as the Jews themselves are as well exposed to the poison of multiculturalism. How sarcastic…

Italy as Italy

Just a couple of days ago hbd chick was talking about the dissolution of Italy and how much Italians really feel for their country. Italy, being Italian, has never really been a solid paragon of the modern nationhood. It’s hard to convince me that they have anything in common with the Romans other than living on the same ground where the highly disciplined Roman legion had vowed to fight for. Anyway, today I have seen a rather amusing piece of news from the internet: Euro crisis prompts Italian village to declare independence.

There is something interesting about the first reaction of the major economic downturn. You see a Greek might hurry to Athens to protest against the governmental austerity plan; a German would probably point fingers to the slacking Southerners for the fault while triggering their forbidden Deutsch pride; even an American could go for a hippie movement to target on the high-table bankers. But for a tiny Italian village, the first thing that crossed over their mind was to secede from the country (I said clean and to the point, maybe).

It seems to me that the tradition of the city-state in Italy still has quite some support. Other long traditions of Italy, a modern papacy, or the Spanish rule would most likely fail nowadays in the Apennine peninsula. As I wonder, who is going to be the next city to propose such deal, too? It now strikes me that no wonder Italians would be fine with the loss of Nice, Corsica, and Istria. That also answers my wonder why San Marino has always kept “independent” all along.

Idiocy and martyrdom

Looking back into history, volunteer martyrdom was either portrayed as the noblest sign of altruism if it was in favor of the right side, or treated like the most despicable  blasphemy of humanity if it was for the losing edge. So much for the manipulative indoctrination. The truth is: people who volunteer for martyrdom are either blindly fanatic or absolutely stupid. But then again, you need a strong emotional impulse to have the lunacy to not think through the 1,000 better solutions other than blowing yourself up like a worthless flesh bomb. That is essentially retarded, too.

Maybe Muslims are extremely sexually repressed and so darn horny about the 72 virgins in paradise promised by Koran. After all, who else is stupid enough nowadays to kill himself for nothing? What’s even more hilarious is that there are more Muslims, who were lucky enough to be raised in the West away from their shithole homeland Mogadishuor Baghdad, deciding to finish their lives in the most idiotic and senseless way. Here is a piece of news I read today:  US citizen perpetrated Somali suicide bombing: Islamists.

The sword on those flags always give me creeps

You know how rare and valuable it is for groups like Al-Qaeda or Al-Shebaab to have a guy who speaks perfect American English with US passport on their side? They could have made the kid into some kind of Jihad hero that could at least blow up some buildings in the west, or some radical imam so that he could get back to US and infiltrate the land of opportunity with extreme Islamism. But once again they chose to have him blown himself in the middle of the god-forsaken rubble of Mogadishu. The idiocy of such act is even beyond the common level of conducting martyrdom. But clearly this was not the first time for them, here is an excellent post by the War Nerd about a similar incident back in 2008: MINNESOTA TO SOMALIA: THE KINKO’S CRUSADE.

“If you were a real terrorist with a real organization, you’d convert to the Baptists, study electrical engineering in Alabama, blog on Free Republic about wiping out the Muzzies, and then, after a few years of living la vida un-loca, board a domestic flight with, say, a sharpened piece of plastic from the frame of your carry-on bag. Big, big difference between that and pulling your suicide string to blow up a roadblock in Puntland.”

If the only things they could do is to drop inbred babies like rabbits and occasionally blow themselves up to kill some innocent folks, it’d be an insult to say the Western Civilization would get rumbled by those people with their Medieval mentality. That reminds me of another funny story: A few years ago the Netherlands set up some ridiculously benevolent policy to grant virtually all Somalis the status of asylum seeker as soon as they claim to be the victims of the civil strife. This was followed by an insanely large flow of Somali immigration to the Netherlands, mostly through fraud claim actually. Of course when the Dutch taxpayers found out they were purely wasting money on mostly frauds (and most Somalis who landed in the Netherlands immediately become the welfare parasites or street criminals), a public outcry occurred that put such absurd policy to an end. Recently I have met one of those Somali in the Netherlands (on a random street at night). You’d expect his gracious attitude towards the Netherlands and his good luck of living in the land of freedom and modernity. But through the whole conversation, the only thing he was talking about, or rather bashing, was how racist Dutch government was to colonize Africa and repress Islam.

Free Syria?

Syria opposition vows protests until regime ousted.

Let’s just take it as some piece of serious news. Then take a closer look to those appealing pictures they showed on how those innocent and good people are fighting for freedom in Syria:

The first picture shows “the determination” of “Syrian people” to strive for freedom, and the ouster of Al-Assad. They are learning fast and getting more pro on the PR (assisted by AFP of course). Bringing a clueless kid on the street with a “Free Syria” sign in English to be pictured by AFP is a brilliant trick (special effect: the red stripe painting dripping down…). Somehow it just reminds me of those images in many Western leftist protests… When people see a kid shouting “Free Syria”, we do feel immediately emotionally connected and overwhelmed. We get your message: Kids + Protest = Always the good side.

This picture probably depicts a much more accurate of what’s really going down there than the previous one. Oddly, the thing that was set ablaze was not the picture of Al-Assad or Syrian Flag. According to the picture’s subtitle in that news article, they were ferociously torching a Russian national flag. Looking at the guy who was valiantly waving the Syrian flag near the fire, it must be quite a show. They should really just storm into Russian Embassy and tear down the concrete wall as well, I am sure they got enough talent to make that happen.

Let’s call it Arab Spring Revolution, for freedom, justice, and most importantly, democracy. Raging Fire.

Free Syria?

Free Syria!

Runaway train

Some interesting news for a little entertainment for us to forget about the gloomy economic environment for a minute:

An Indian train found lost its direction after hundred kilometers on the wrong way

Pure magic. Reminds me of the song “Runaway Train“:

Runaway train never going back 
Wrong way on a one way track 
Seems like I should be getting somewhere 
Somehow I’m neither here nor there 

The train first took the wrong direction in some intersection after the operator mistakenly issued a different destination code. Starting from the Southern Indian city Tirupati, the train was supposed to head towards Eastern city Bhubaneswar. Instead, the train mystically traveled over hundreds of kilometers on the wrong track to Central Indian city Warangal, 980KM away from its supposed destination.

“The express train had managed to cross three of India’s railway divisions and travel hundreds of miles without anyone noticing it had lost its way.”

It was those overloading passengers who first discovered the oddness when they found the landscapes along the railway weirdly unfamiliar. Check here to see the itinerary of the accidental adventure.

It’s difficult for me to understand how this could happen and remain undiscovered for so long in the Indian railway system. It’s even miraculous to see that the “runaway train” actually manged to make its way safe and sound after traveling for days in the wrong track without hitting any other trains in India’s old and overloading railway system.

Speculation: first, the train operators probably still use the colonial style train operation system with handwritten cards and telegraph for information exchange, the only reason why this peculiar incident could happen in the first place (when at the same time not a single staff is familiar with the route). And secondly, it’s a really lucky train in a country that train accidents aren’t something that rare…

If India is ever going to fully embrace modernity, and I am not talking about how many engineers, scientists, or billionaires India has produced, if India wants to be developed wholly as a country, then they have to focus their major energy on improving its sketchy ageing infrastructure system first. Nothing else, just the darn infrastructure.

What we consider epic, they deem bland

Asylum seekers’ riot in Australia

Today in Darwin, Northern Australia, a riot broke up in a detention center and set the whole facility afire. Firefighters went to the location trying to extinguish the fire and were greeted with stones thrown at them. Quite “coincidentally”, this day is also the Muslim holy day Eid al-Fitr which marks the end of the month-long of fasting of Ramadan. Also another one “contingent” fact is that the detention center “happens to” detain lots of third-world inveterate “asylum seekers” from neighboring country Indonesia. Most of the asylum seekers are Indonesian Muslims. Not exactly knowing how paying to be smuggled to Australia on an overloaded raft equals the “asylum seeker” status, they are there in the detention center.

“A source inside the centre said no detainees were allowed to attend Darwin Mosque today to take part in the festivities.”

Blatantly revealing as it is, the officials has to be politically correct to omit certain facts:

“The Federal Immigration Department confirmed there was an incident at the centre but said it was too early to comment”

Of course they don’t want to comment on it. The truth is they accepted a bunch of Muslim mobs in their land, and must have a real headache on how to deal with them without being seen discriminated. Is it incorrect to associate Muslims as loose cannons and mobs potential? Quoted from the Australian Federal Immigration Department: “it was too early to comment“. Islam in Indonesia has undergone a rapid radicalization process in recent years. The old peaceful jungle people are more than ever devoted to the religion of those Arab traders nowadays. The result is all those radical Islam movement you see in the country: banning ancient pagan tradition, bombing Western devils, restricting young people’s public behavior etc. However, the mentality of you-don’t-allow-me-go-to-mosque-I-burn-your-house does perfectly match the IQ and the ideology of its believers and the warrior religion itself.

Australia should send those barbaric mobs to Malaysia as part of the immigrants swap agreement with their government. They must not release them and grant them the Asylum Seeker status. Picture this: a block where Muslim family waving to a gay couple next door while women walking in bikini on the street. The likelihood of that happening is laughably slim as long as Muslims still take Islam as the guideline for everything they do. If the liberals really feel compassionate at the starving third world people, there’s plenty of infidel minorities in those Muslims countries under fierce persecution under Muslim governments.

Unfortunately, The incident comes on the same day the High Court ruled against the Federal Government’s refugee swap deal with Malaysia.” A great victory for leftists and their Muslim brothers.
