Other Items That Caught Our Eye This Week - w/e 26 May

by The Participator – 28 May 2018


ARRESTS AND REPORTING RESTRICTIONS

An arrest of a high profile individual in the UK this week briefly hit the headlines before reporting restrictions were announced. Many concerns have been expressed for the individual’s safety in prison due to his high profile anti-Islamic activism (UK prisons have a disproportionately large population of Muslims, including convicted terrorists and violent criminals). From Breitbart:

[Redacted] Arrested for [Redacted] Outside [Redacted]: Leeds Crown Court Issues Media Ban

Curiously though, some well known news sites still have their uncensored pages up (we have redacted the headings). The Independent published this despicably biased and libelous article:

([Warning] Please note that there appears to be a hacking attack embedded in this page, do not click on this link unless you have up to date and robust internet security software in place.)

[Article heading redacted]

Emotions were running high in London, a protest was staged outside the entrance to Downing Street. From the Evening Standard:

[Article heading redacted]

Presumably the news sites involved are not subject to the media restrictions, despite the fact that they are based in the UK? As of 27 May 17:30 there were also still un-redacted articles up at the Times, the Sun, the Metro and the Spectator.

We will have more to say about all of this in due course when the restrictions are lifted. A number of high profile politicians have spoken out against the arrests and restrictions including in speeches made in this clip:

WE’RE NOT ALLOWED TO SAY WHY WE ARE HERE

Apparently there may be a legal challenge against the arrest soon.

A second arrest took place which may be under sub-judice restrictions, for an apparently absurdly trivial incident, this time of a woman who has become known in recent months. Strangely, she has also been involved in anti-Islamic activism. Are anti-Islamic activists inferior before the law, are they being targeted for selective enforcement? Of course we ask the question rhetorically because we know the answer already.


FREEDOM OF SPEECH UNDER ATTACK AS USUAL

Last Sunday the Express had this report that Sajid Javid was planning to “rid the internet of hate”:

New laws aim to rid the internet of hate

Another related story also from the Express:

‘Make Britain safe’ New laws to end internet ‘Wild West’ in threat to web giants

This is not unexpected though as the last Tory election manifesto promised just such measures. We don’t have to try too hard to read between the lines of these articles to realize this is probably going to be aimed at many more people than just real terrorists and paedophiles.


LEWISHAM BY-ELECTION

Labour have selected a candidate who’s policy stances on the EU are at odds with those of Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn. From the Independent:

Lewisham East byelection: Janet Daby wins Labour candidacy after pledging to fight for single market membership

The constituency is apparently heavily pro-Remain.


PART TIME WOMAN STANDING FOR WOMAN-ONLY ROLE

While we’re on the subject of strange Labour selections, we have this from Breitbart:

Labour Allows Bearded Man to Stand For Woman-Only Role Because He ‘Identifies’ as Female Once a Week


ISLAMIC LAWFARE USED TO SILENCE UK PRESS

From Harry’s Place:

Mohammed Kozbar of the Finsbury Park Mosque and Lawfare Silencing


IS GEORGE SOROS TRYING TO DISRUPT OUR DEMOCRACY?

From Breitbart:

CLAIM: Soros-Backed Activists Being Trained to ‘Ruthlessly’ Target MPs to Pressure Them to Reject Brexit


HATE NOT HOPE

From Breitbart:

HOPE Not Hate Identified in Swedish Military Report on Left Wing Extremist Violence

Also:

Antifa Advertise Conference Featuring Group Who Had Members Convicted of 1993 Bombing

The above article links to a 1995 article about Red Action from the Independent:

CHARGE OF THE NEW RED BRIGADE

This article contains details of the strangely English terrorists who planted a bomb on behalf of the IRA.


MI6 DIVERSIFYING

From Breitbart:

Children of Migrants Allowed to Spy for Britain for the First Time in Diversity Drive


MIGRANT CRISIS

From Breitbart:

European Court Estimates Over 90 Million EU Residents Are First- or Second-Generation Migrants

From Germany we have this story, from the Express:

Germany sets aside £68bn to fund immigration amid fresh attack on Merkel policy


SWEDEN COMBAT READY?

From Breitbart, news that the Swedish govt. has sent out a booklet preparing for war:

Government Sends Every Swedish Household Booklet Preparing Citizens for War

War against whom though, we were wondering…

Is Sweden about to go to war with itself?


IS ERDOGAN INCITING VIOLENCE?

From Breitbart:

Deliver an ‘Ottoman Slap’ in ‘Failing Europe’, Erdogan Tells E.U.’s Muslims


ANOTHER RAPE CASE BLUNDER BY THE UK POLICE

From the Express:

Jail hell over Police rape blunder: Businessman latest victim of justice scandal


ROHINGYA MILITANTS MASSACRED HINDUS

According to the Guardian:

Rohingya militants massacred Hindus in Myanmar, says Amnesty

Quote:

Testimony collected by Amnesty from dozens of witnesses and survivors of the attacks in Rakhine in August have detailed how up to 99 Hindu men, women and children were killed by Arsa militants armed with knives, swords and sticks. Only those who agreed to convert to Islam were spared.

The article then goes on to “explain” the emergence of the Arsa terrorist group:

Arsa - the Arakan Rohingya Salvation army - are a group of trained fighters estimated to be in their hundreds. It was formed in around 2012 in reaction to long-term systematic discrimination against the Rohingya community in Rakhine, but only came to prominence in October 2016 after a series of attacks on Myanmar’s security forces.

However another article from Dr. Andrew Bostom gives us a longer term view:

Before There Were “Rohingyas,” Colonizing Bengali Muslims Waged Jihad in Myanmar-And It Continues Apace

Quote:

As we shall see, like their ethnically cleansed co-religionists to the south, in western Myanmar’s Arakan province, the Buddhists of the Indian subcontinent were subjugated to the near extinguishing ravages of jihad, albeit some 800 years prior

In March the UK government pledged to support Rohingya refugees with a £70m aid package, according to Sky News:

UK pledges £70m Rohingya aid ahead of rainy season


GEERT WILDERS HAS JUDGES REPLACED

A little bit of good news to end on a more cheerful note. From Gates of Vienna:

Wilders Did It Again!
