    German Guilt is Built on Fake News (Part 4)

    The popular view is that the National Socialists in Germany were anti-intellectual, anti-science and anti-literature, based on the notorious book burnings in 1933. The popular view is wrong because it’s based on fake news. First, some context, as described in part two of this series, Jews around the world declared economic war on Germany in March of 1933. This, naturally, led to a reaction in Germany against Jews, Jewish thought and Jewish intellectuals. Among those targeted was Magnus Hirschfeld, a Jew, a homosexual and an early promoter of deviant sexuality. Wikipedia says this about him: An outspoken advocate for sexual minorities, Hirschfeld founded the Scientific Humanitarian Committee. Historian Dustin Goltz characterized…

    German Guilt is Based on Fake News (Part 3)

    Read the headline, and the sub-head and then the date. This is March 24,1933 and the Daily Express is reporting a concerted effort by Jews around the world, including powerful Jewish financial interests, to boycott German goods with the aim of crippling the country’s already precarious economy. Its Special Political Correspondent correctly says they had, in effect “declared war” on Germany. He could hardly have missed the story because on March 12 the American Jewish congress announced a massive protest at Madison Square Gardens for March 27 and the day before, on March 23, 20,000 Jews protested at New York’s City Hall and rallies were staged outside the North German…

    German Guilt is based on Fake News (Part 2)

    It’s well known both sides use propaganda in wartime, what we now call ‘fake news.’ It’s also well known that “history is written by the victors” (Winston Churchill). So it really shouldn’t be a surprise after we won WWI and WWII, we used our own propaganda to point the finger of blame. This is why most of us—anyone schooled after 1939—have a clear idea Germany started both wars and is guilty of crimes against humanity. I’m going to deal with this in six parts, starting with WWI. Did Germany start it? Let’s look at the sequence of events and see where and when Germany enters the picture. 28 June 1914, Archduke…

    Multiculturalism is Bad for the Environment

    The following post was originally written in 2007, but it’s just as relevant today, perhaps even more so. Their mission statements are very clear. Those organizations fighting to achieve a stable population level for their respective countries do not want to muddy the waters with concerns that would decoy attention from the major task at hand: containing and reducing the numbers of consumers in their societies. The ethnic, cultural or religious composition of those numbers is immaterial to their environmental impact. That’s the party line, and it is defended and believed with conviction, against the determined efforts of open-borders critics and human rights activists to impute racism and bury the…

    Armed Violence is as Christian as the Pope

    Most of our freedoms today are as a direct, or indirect, result of actions by the Christian church, specifically, by the Pope. At least two, and possibly all three, of the decisive battles fought by Europeans to defend our civilization were either organized, or supported, by the Vatican. First let’s look at the list: Frankish King Charles Martel defeated Abdul Rahman Al Ghafiqi at the battle of Tours in 732, John of Austria led the combined fleet of the Holy League against the Ottoman navy at the Battle of Lepanto in 1571, and Polish King John III Sobieski lifted the siege of Vienna in 1683. Charles’s victory stopped the northward…

    Christ and God Had Armed Guards

    This post begins an occasional series on religion. Many Canadians think they have to be pacifist to be good Christians. This isn’t so and they should understand why. The above image from the church in Gacé, Lower-Normandy, shows St. Peter sheathing his sword after defending the Lord on the night he was arrested on Gethsemane. It’s an odd grip he has on it, his thumb should be against the hilt, but no matter. The more interesting fact is that St. Peter is wearing it from a belt or baldric over his shoulder. This isn’t surprising since an early Roman short sword, an xiphos, copied from the Greeks, was between 18 and 22-inches long,…

    Liberals and NDP Erase History

    Maxime Bernier, Leader of the People’s Party of Canada, says all the major political parties are in favour of curbing free speech. Here’s a note he sent out yesterday to his supporters. Attacks against free speech continued this week in Ottawa. And they come from all the other parties. It started when Andrew Scheer kicked out his MP Michael Cooper from the justice committee for speaking his mind. Then the Liberals and NDP voted to erase what he said from parliamentary records. They are rewriting history, just like in the novel 1984! The Conservatives did not even oppose this. Then all parties voted to remove the video feed when defenders…

    Thoughts on D-Day

    Another D-Day and Canadian soldiers wading into the surf against German gunfire. I’ve seen the pictures before, indeed, the landing craft doors opening and the beachfront houses are as familiar as my own house. And yet, my view might have been so different. I was three years old on June 6, 1944 and living in Trinidad, B.W.I., incredibly enough, with my missionary parents. D-Day was just another day in Paradise for me. And my mother; what did she think? Her maiden name was German, her ancestors emigrated to Canada from Pennsylvania, so both Y.E.L and Pennsilfaanisch-Deitsche. She spoke German, not to me, but to her father. Mom visited Germany in…

  • White Nationalism

    White Nationalism is Now a Crime

    YouTube announced today it will ban videos it calls ‘racist,’ ‘hateful,’ or ‘supremacist.’ You can read the details here, here or here. You should, because the reports conflate white nationalism, what we call ethno-nationalism, with white supremacism. The difference isn’t pedantic, it’s critical, even catastrophic. Supremacism means “The belief that a particular race, religion, gender, or culture is superior  to others, such that those who identify with it are entitled to dominate, control, or rule those who do not.” White nationalism, on the other hand, means whites believe in their own race, as do blacks, Asians and others, and would like a country to live in as their own. The AFP report by Rob…

    UNB Professor Forced Out

    The following is part of a CBC New Brunswick report on the Prof. Ricardo Duchesne situation at the University of New Brunswick. A University of New Brunswick professor accused of being a white supremacist and denounced by more than 100 colleagues for his views on immigration is taking early retirement, the university announced on Tuesday. Prof. Ricardo Duchesne provided his notice “to focus on his own pursuits as an independent scholar,” vice-president Petra Hauf said in a statement. “We respectfully accept his decision and thank him for his 24 years of service.” CBC News requested an interview, but UNB spokesperson Heather Campbell declined. Duchesne, who teaches sociology at the Saint John campus, has appeared…
