It isn’t likely to happen with Naomi Campbell, but sometimes celebrities do something right. You can tell this has happened when the media abruptly shifts from obsequious fawning to righteous denunciation.
A headline at Variety:
Van Morrison and Eric Clapton Strike the Wrong Note About COVID-19
Tightly clutching her pearls, the author shrieks:
In what world are these two living?
The fact that they would decide to collaborate on a song slamming COVID-19 lockdowns, discouraging people from taking extreme precautions and wearing masks to protect themselves and others, is beyond unconscionable.
The crime of these classic rockers is to release the song “Stand and Deliver,” which objects to the COVID-19 tyranny that the media holds dearer even than celebrity worship.
For Van Morrison, this is not a first offense.
Earlier this fall, Morrison released three other songs protesting the ongoing lockdown in the U.K., where, by the way, some news reports state that as many as 75,000 lives have been lost.
Does he not understand that all these lives would have been saved had Britain jettisoned its long tradition of liberty so as to impose draconian lockdown decrees? Oh wait, that’s what Britain did. But too much tyranny is never enough to suit the MSM.
The great Eric Clapton has transgressed. Out comes the racism club:
When Clapton announced last week that he was teaming with Morrison on a fourth anti-lockdown song to raise money for struggling artists during the pandemic, racist remarks he made onstage at his concert in Birmingham, England, in 1976 about keeping “Britain white” were unearthed on Twitter. He got pummeled on social media — rightfully so…
Wanting to keep England English is even more “unconscionable” than wanting to keep it free. Eric Clapton, consider yourself canceled. Your music will vanish.
In contrast to the thought criminals Morrison and Clapton, moonbat celebrities are caressed with coos of praise:
Meanwhile, humanitarian Bruce Springsteen teamed with fellow New Jersey artists Jon Bon Jovi and Jon Stewart to launch a statewide “Wear a Friggin’ Mask!” billboard campaign in which the three are featured wearing COVID masks.
This trio actually stood up and delivered.
That could be why so many entertainers are moonbats like Springsteen and Bon Jovi. It gets them good press, and good press equals money.
Listen fast before YouTube censors this for standing up to authorities:
Maybe it’s a matter of taste, but that sure sounds better than anything I’ve heard from Bruce Springsteen or Bon Jovi.
On a tip from Lyle.
It didn’t take the apparatchiks at YouTube long to censor this song, as predicted. There was a time when no American would have put up with this level of censorship. Hear the song via BitChute here.
The North African bled to death slowly and painfully. When the investigators broke into his room in the municipal refugee shelter in Lohmar on the morning of July the 15th, they were confronted with a horrible sight: The 45-year-old lay tied up on the floor, dead, his face shattered and hardly recognisable, his whole body full of cuts and bruises. The emergency doctor could only confirm his death.The Bonn public prosecutor’s office brought charges against two Moroccan refugees on Tuesday December the 1st, according to court spokeswoman Saskia Wielpütz, who was asked by the prosecutor. The 28 and 29-year-old men are accused of murder out of greed, cruelty and for enabling a crime to be committed – namely aggravated robbery.According to the indictment, the two refugees, who were then living in the Central Accommodation Facility (CUE) in Sankt Augustin, tortured their later victim for more than two hours in the early hours of the morning, kicking, stabbing and cutting him. They are said to have struck his head with a metal table leg at least 20 times with full force, cutting not only the upper and lower eyelid but also the right eyeball.
In addition – according to the results of the autopsy – his right shinbone had been broken, as had his left ulna, and an index finger was smashed. With a pair of stolen Nike trainers and a mobile phone of the victim, the suspects left the accommodation at 6 a.m. The victim, who was dying, remained tied up.
The two Moroccans were arrested on the same day. In Siegburg, they were drunk and smeared with blood when they were arrested. When the police arrived, the younger one had left on the Line 66 in the direction of Sankt Augustin, the other one was taken into police custody. A small stab wound in his chest was treated. His buddy was later arrested in the refugee accommodation. The duo could quickly be linked to the dead man in Lohmar.The two defendants, who arrived several years ago as refugees and were only tolerated for a limited period, have so far remained silent on the accusations. Only the younger one is said to have declared to an expert that they had used and drunk cocaine together. Suddenly he was attacked by the 45-year-old with a knife. But he does not remember anything else.The prosecution does not rule out the possibility that the three men – who probably knew each other from the drug scene – spent the previous day or even hours before the deadly escalation together in Bonn and finally accompanied the 45-year-old North African to his accommodation in Lohmar. What might have caused the excessive violence, however, is still unclear. Residents of the house had heard screams, beating, hammering and breaking glass in the early morning, as the guard book of the accommodation records – also that a pair of scissors and a knife were found underneath the dead man’s room.All this must be investigated by the Bonn jury court. The trial will start next year at the earliest and has not yet been scheduled.
The German state of North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW) is organizing aid for the homeless as winter approaches. But the aid provided for the homeless does not compare with the resources available for immigrants.
NRW has given the paltry sum of €340 000 for the plight of the homeless. During the frosty season the homeless in particular are exposed to the freezing cold without protection. Without it, they may freeze to death. Therefore some heated tents, sleeping bags, backpacks, non-perishable foods and disinfectants will be distributed to them.
And while the homeless have to make do with tents, asylum seekers and “winter refugees” can count on heated communal accommodation at the very least. They also receive three meals per day, and many have an apartment given to them with a fitted kitchen.
The regional daily, the Rheinische Post reported that Social Affairs Minister Karl-Josef Laumann (CDU) has made state funding available to finance “alternative options”, for example in heated “larger tents”, in which the relevant hygiene regulations and distance rules for Corona infection protection can then be observed. More than 90 independent homeless support providers from all parts of the country are ready to help.
It appears that finding a place to stay even with the help of the housing companies in North Rhine-Westphalia, has become difficult for homeless persons. The homeless “carer projects” which started nine months ago in 20 districts and all urban districts will now be extended for two years, and two more districts have been added: Düren and the urban region of Aachen.
Five years ago already, immigrants cost each inhabitant in NRW just under €3 a month on average, according to the Westfalen-Blatt (Bielefeld).
Thus a total of 557 million euros were paid in North Rhine-Westphalia in one year for services under the Asylum Seekers Benefits Act, such as accommodation, food, medical care, and pocket money. In addition, €50,3 million was spent in Westphalia-Lippe (€11,2 million) and in the Rhineland (€39,1 million) for the care of underage immigrants.
“Overall, refugee costs are an enormous burden for cities and municipalities. The conversion to every citizen however shows that fears that refugees would endanger our prosperity or our welfare state are absurd,” said the CDU member of the state parliament André Kuper said at the time.
If you divide the total (€607,3 million) by the population of North Rhine-Westphalia (17,6 million), the cost per citizen is €34,50 per year or €2,87 per month.
Also, the costs had significantly increased within a year. According to Kuper,“at least three to four times as much”. German cities no longer have space for migrants – or their homeless – and have to either buy or rent containers or build houses.
The Berlin Social Democratic Party (SPD) wants to abolish clan crime. But it is not the crime it intends to eradicate, but only the term. For the SPD is particularly concerned about “migrant Berlin businesses”. As long as the police call a spade a spade, they are subject to “discrimination” in the course of raids.The political “Working Group on Migration and Diversity” in the SPD claims that there has been “an increase in attacks on businesses run by people with a history of migration”. The daily Berliner Zeitung suspects that this refers to the large-scale controls and police raids in districts where foreigners live, such as Neukölln and Kreuzberg, which have been intensified for over a year. It reports: “Heavily armed police forces regularly march here, checking and searching shops and shisha bars that are considered to be part of the clan milieu. If the SPD has its way, this should be over.For this reason, on October 31st, in the course of the Berlin SPD party conference, the party introduced a motion to “protect migrant businesses”. In the future, the SPD wants to work towards abolishing the term “clan crime” in official use. According to the Berlin SPD, the police should no longer be able to refer to the crimes referred to as “clan crime”. The party believes that the use of the term will ultimately only end in racism and discrimination.However, SPD politician Franziska Giffey replied in the course of the state party conference: “Good politics begins with saying what is. We are dealing with organised clan crime in the city, which makes life difficult for the people”. With this view, however, Giffey is now a minority. The motion was accepted by the SPD delegates.The SPD demands that “the number of police forces deployed be limited as far as possible and that disproportionate heavy armament be avoided” and that the police be trained “in how to prevent discrimination in the conduct of official duties”.
According to the Hamburg Office for the Protection of the Constitution, the illegal Islamist Hizb ut-Tahrir is becoming increasingly popular in the Hanseatic city. While in 2018 there were still 220 and last year about 250 German or Afghan and Turkish-born supporters, the “Party of Liberation” today has about 300 members, said Marco Haase, spokesman for the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution.The reasons are the general influx into the Islamic communities as well as the new insights into the dark field by the Office for the Protection of the Constitution. A total of 1660 people in Hamburg currently belong to the Islamist grouping, which also includes the new grouping “Muslim Interactive”.
This is represented in the social media, currently has almost 4000 subscribers on Instagram and the target group is primarily young Muslims living in Germany. The circle of supporters for the media campaigns is around 100 people, said Haase. The organisers and supporters of the actions come from Hamburg, according to the findings of the Office for the Protection of the Constitution, or at least the videos are usually staged against the Hamburg backdrop. The use of language in the films shows clear parallels to the networks Generation Islam (GI) and Reality Islam, which in turn can be attributed to the ideological context of Hizb ut-Tahrir.
Muslim Interaktiv had drawn attention, inter alia, by protest actions in front of the Austrian and French embassies in Berlin and by a motorcade in Hamburg downtown, all of which were subsequently distributed online. Haase emphasised: “In such actions and campaigns it is not the thematisation of social grievances or the advocacy of those affected for certain population groups that is questionable, but the misuse of important topics while concealing the real intentions.
Hizb ut-Tahrir – which originated from the Muslim Brotherhood – supports the use of violence as a means of achieving political goals according to the Federal Ministry of the Interior’s decree banning the use of violence, spreads anti-Semitic hate propaganda and calls for the killing of Jews. It is striving for a worldwide caliphate and wants the complete introduction of the Sharia. The prohibition of activities issued in 2003 was confirmed by the Federal Administrative Court in 2006. The European Court of Human Rights had rejected an appeal against it in 2012.
Recently, public demonstrations by Islamists in Hamburg, organised by several groups in response to the murder of a Parisian history teacher, had caused a stir.
The British army has chosen to go to “war” against opponents of the upcoming mass vaccinations that are planned. It is the 77th Brigade, the so-called DCSU, or “Defense Cultural Specialist Unit” that will monitor and counter “online propaganda against vaccines”.
According to the Sunday Times, vaccine dissidents will be hunted down by pinpointing adversarial physical, virtual and cognitive behaviours. The unit was founded in 2010 and worked with psyops teams in Afghanistan by studying the behaviors and cultural characteristics of the Afghan people and then providing cultural and linguistic advice to the British ground troops, the brigade noted on its own website.
But the department’s work has continued and now focuses on influencing people via social media. Ahead of the planned mass vaccination campaigns that will be launched in the UK, the brigade’s collective experience and capabilities are said to play a major role in counteracting and combating opponents of the vaccines that the authorities want to force the population to take.
According to the newspaper Newsweek, at least one of those in charge on Twitter has direct links to the 77th Brigade. This individual is Gordon MacMillan who started working for Twitter in 2013 and is responsible for the editorial work that Twitter puts out in the Middle East and North Africa. At the same time, he also worked for the 77th Brigade as an “active reservist”, but both Twitter and the British military have played down their cooperation.
Twitter has denied sharing information with intelligence services. The 77th Brigade said in a brief statement to Newsweek: “There is no relationship or agreement between the 77th Brigade and Twitter, other than that we use Twitter as one of many social media platforms for engagement and communication. The army does not comment on the specific activities of reservists working within the division.”
According to the Sunday Times, the brigade is already monitoring the network for Covid-19-related material and analyzing how British citizens are affected by this. The brigade denied that it was actively trying to influence British citizens in a specific direction, instead claiming that it “collects evidence of vaccine information from hostile states, including Russia”.
But the brigade’s activities do not stop at gathering information, but also consist of direct surveillance and countering of “enemy actors”, which in this case includes what is called “militant vaccine opponents”. How vaccine opponents become “militant” seems unclear, however, instead it seems to be about all groups and individuals who are opposed to the vaccines, regardless of whether this comes from conspiracy theories about the dangers of vaccines.
The British authorities will thus soon launch a massive and comprehensive campaign to combat vaccine resistance, which is also large in the UK, where every third Briton – similar figures as in Sweden – is hesitant to take the rapidly evolving vaccines that will soon be available, experience Times. The work of the 77th Brigade will then be to attack and fight vaccine opponents in various ways so that only a positive image of the vaccines will reach the population through various information and misinformation campaigns. Even when one chooses to call vaccine critics and opponents “militants”, one can assume that these campaigns have already begun.
Sweden is also suspected of launching extensive mass vaccination campaigns through several authorities, such as the Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency (MSB) and the National Board of Health and Welfare, during the winter to, just like in the UK, influence people to take the new vaccines.
