Tommy Robinson appeal: English Defence League founder STAYS …

Leading judges have reserved their decision in the conviction and sentence challenges brought by former English Defence League (EDL) leader Tommy Robinson.

The Court of Appeal, in London, today heard challenges by Robinson against his 13-month jail term for contempt of court.

The ex-EDL leader – whose real name is Stephen Christopher Yaxley-Lennon – was locked up in May after he filmed outside a criminal trial and broadcast the footage on social media.

The footage, lasting around an hour, was watched 250,000 times within hours of being posted on Facebook .

The far-right activist was given 10 months for contempt of court, which he admitted, and a further three months for breaching a previous suspended sentence.

The 35-year-old made a bid to have his sentence cut at the Court of Appeal in London today.

Al Sharpton talks to Michael Cohen, who says there’s ‘no …

Michael Cohen. Brendan McDermid/Reuters

President Donald Trump’s former longtime lawyer Michael Cohen chatted with the Reverend Al Sharpton for an hour, Sharpton announced on Twitter on Friday morning.

Cohen responded to Sharpton’s tweet minutes later, saying there wasn’t anyone “better to talk to!”

“Just spent an hour w/ Michael Cohen, Trump’s former attorney,” Sharpton, the host of MSNBC’s “PoliticsNation,” tweeted Friday morning. “I bet you’re wondering what we could be talking about! Stay tuned.”

“I have known Rev for almost 20 years,” Cohen responded. “No one better to talk to!”

Cohen is the focus of a criminal investigation in the Southern District of New York into whether he violated campaign-finance laws, committed bank fraud and/or wire fraud, engaged in illegal lobbying, or participated in other crimes. The FBI raided Cohen’s home, hotel room, and office in April, seizing more than 4 million documents.

At the center of Cohen’s troubles is a $130,000 hush-money payment he facilitated weeks before the 2016 presidential election to porn star Stormy Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, to keep her from talking about her allegation of a 2006 affair with Trump. The FBI sought documents related to that payment and other similar agreements with women.

Trump, Cohen, and the White House denied that an affair took place. Originally, Cohen said Trump did not reimburse him for the payment. In May, Trump admitted to paying back his lawyer for the cost.

Cohen has split with Trump dramatically in recent weeks. During an interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos that was published earlier this month, Cohen said his family “and this country” have his “first loyalty.”

Cohen also split with his legal team and hired a pair of new attorneys. Cohen’s defense will now be guided by Guy Petrillo, a partner at Petrillo Klein & Boxer who has extensive experience in the Southern District of New York and is the kind of lawyer a person would choose if they were seeking to cut a deal with prosecutors, experts told Business Insider. In addition, Cohen brought on Lanny Davis, notable for his work as a lawyer and representative for President Bill Clinton during the Monica Lewinsky scandal.

Michael Cohens Meeting With Al Sharpton Was Intended To …

3:53 PM 07/21/2018

Chuck Ross | Reporter

Former Trump attorney Michael Cohens meeting on Friday with Al Sharpton was intended to send a signal to the president, the civil rights activist says.

Out of all the people he could reach out to, reaching out to me is sending a signal to Mr. Trump and I think, probably, to prosecutors that he was not one who would not deal with someone who has been fighting Donald Trump for decades on social justice issues, Sharpton said in an interview on MSNBC on Friday.

WATCH:

Sharpton and Cohen met at a restaurant for over an hour on Friday morning, shortly before news broke that months before the 2016 election, Cohen secretly recorded a two-minute conversation with Trump regarding Karen McDougal, a Playboy playmate who allegedly had an affair with Trump in 2006.

The Washington Post reported that Cohen suggested purchasing the rights to McDougals story from AMI, the parent company of the National Enquirer. AMI paid McDougal $150,000 in August 2016 for her story.

According to The Post, Trump is mostly silent in the recording. At one point he asked Cohen how the payment would be made.

I received a text from him saying he wanted to meet, Sharpton said on Saturday. We met at a public restaurant and we spoke for over an hour. He was very troubled and felt in many ways cast wrongly.

And I feel he was saying that he had been abandoned by Mr. Trump, Sharpton continued, adding: He was adamant that he was opposed to things that Mr. Trump was doing.

Sharpton tweeted about his meeting with Cohen shortly after it ended.

Just spent an hour w/ Michael Cohen, Trumps former attorney, Sharpton wrote. I bet youre wondering what we could be talking about! Stay tuned.

Cohen confirmed the meeting, writing that I have known Rev for almost 20 years. No one better to talk to!

Trump blasted his former attorney in an early-morning tweet on Saturday.

Inconceivable that the government would break into a lawyers office (early in the morning) almost unheard of. Even more inconceivable that a lawyer would tape a client totally unheard of & perhaps illegal, he wrote. (RELATED: Perhaps Illegal: Trump Rails Against Cohen For Taping His Private Conversations)

The U.S. Attorneys Office in Manhattan is reportedly investigating Cohen over his business dealings and possible campaign finance violations. Cohens payments to women are reportedly a part of the investigation. Just before the 2016 election, Cohen paid $130,000 to Stormy Daniels, an adult film star who also allegedly had an affair with Trump in 2006.

The FBI raided Cohens home, office and hotel room on April 9.

Al Sharpton: Cohen is ‘sending a signal’ to Trump

The enemy of my enemy is my friend.

Donald Trump is definitely my enemy, and hes gotbillions more enemies on this planet.

Good God, Ive never felt so loved.

Of course, if recent reports can be believed, it looks like we all have a new friend in erstwhile Trump fixer Michael Cohen. And Al Sharpton, who has known Cohen for yearsbut islight-years distant from him ideologically, is a new friend of his, too.

Sharpton had a sit-down withCohen recently … at a restaurant in full view of the public. And Sharpton thinksthe encounter was fraught with meaning.

From The Hill:

I received a text from him saying he wanted to meet, Sharpton said. We met at a public restaurant and we spoke for over an hour. He was very troubled and felt in many ways cast wrongly.

And I feel he was saying that he had been abandoned by Mr. Trump,” Sharpton continued, adding: He was adamant that he was opposed to things that Mr. Trump was doing.

Sharpton told [Ali] Velshi that Cohen’s decision to sit down with the MSNBC host known for his work in the civil rights movement was a “signal” to Trump andRobert Mueller’s special counsel investigation that he was not in lock-step with his former boss.

Out of all the people he could reach out to, reaching out to me is sending a signal to Mr. Trump and I think, probably, to prosecutors that he was not one who would not deal with someone who has been fighting Donald Trump for decades on social justice issues,” he said.

Can there be any doubtthat Cohen is ready to flip on Trump?

And if he does, is there any doubt it would be very, very bad for Trump?

Stay tuned. This rigged witch hunt is getting more and more entertaining by the day.

Meet Milo Yiannopoulos, the Appealing Young Face of the …

Milo Yiannopoulos is a beast.

The 31-year-old, boastfully gay Breitbart writeror dangerous faggothas quickly become a hero to young conservatives and libertarians for smacking down the ridiculous out-of-control social justice warriors who troll college campuses.

If Donald Trump defies political correctness, Yiannopoulosan avid Trump supporter prone to calling The Donald daddyobliterates it.

A woman confronted Yiannopoulos during his speech in a packed American University auditorium last month, asking if his controversial rhetoric invalidated minority views.

Fuck your feelings, he told her.

The kids loved it. Me too.

How could you not? As the student left becomes insufferably extreme, Milos become the perfect counterpunch.

Hes irreverent. Hes exciting.

To an old guy like mea whole decade Milos senior!hes punk rock.

At 62, punctuated by a tall poof of bleached hair his friends will tell you, he is always on, whether hes railing against the matriarchy, bragging about his own fabulousness or discussing his love of black dick, wrote Fusion last year.

Hes a middle finger to the establishment, left and right.

Slamming #NeverTrump Republicans last week, Yiannopoulos scolded the GOP for offending young Trump supporters like himself, Unlike most right-wing writers, my biggest demographic is 18-34 year olds.

Those werent just any old voters you were alienating, Milo said to anti-Trump Republicans. They include the next generation of conservative firebrands, who are currently gravitating to Trump, the alt-right, and me.

The alt-right.

There are worse things than political correctness.

***

In March, Yiannopoulos coauthored a 3,500-word piece for Breitbart called An Establishment Conservatives Guide To The Alt-Right.

Although initially small in number, Yiannopoulos and Allum Bokhari explained, the alt-right has a youthful energy and jarring, taboo-defying rhetoric that have boosted its membership and made it impossible to ignore.

This movement is young, they do defy taboos and unfortunately, the alt-right has become impossible to ignore.

Because its racist.

I dont mean racist like the left does, where merely being white and male is a sin.

I mean rationalizing that youre intellectually or culturally superior because youre white. I mean believing that black and brown people are less valuable to society and should be viewed with contempt.

Ive never met Milo Yiannopoulos and am not really that concerned with whether hes a racist or not. Such accusations are what the left does ad nauseam and part of what Yiannopoulos rightly fights against.

But I do think he flirts with racism: The alt-right openly crack jokes about the Holocaust, loudlyalbeit almost entirely satiricalexpresses its horror at race-mixing They have no real problem with race-mixing writes Yiannopoulos.

I do think he opens windows that concern me: Anything associated as closely with racism and bigotry as the alternative right will inevitably attract real racists and bigots, admits Yiannopoulos. The alt-rights intellectuals would also argue that culture is inseparable from race, he writes.

I know well where this kind of collectivist thinking can lead. (You can read at The Beast about my own Southern Avenger controversy).

Ive spent the last eight years as part of the Ron and Rand Paul-inspired liberty movement, speaking to groups like Young Americans for Liberty (a few YAL local chapters have sponsored some Milo Yiannopoulos events). Today, YAL is the largest center-right youth group in America.

As an organization dedicated to individual liberty.

The alt-right is the polar opposite of libertarianism.

Analyzing a subset of the alt-right who call themselves neoreactionaries, Voxs Dylan Matthews explains this important distinction, Most modern libertarians are individualists, motivated by a desire to prevent the masses from oppressing the individual

Neoreactionaries are not individualists neoreaction places huge value on group membership and group loyalty, Matthews says.

They are tribalists, and for the most partlets not mince wordsthey are racists.

Much of Yiannopouloss Breitbart essay defends the alt-right from charges of racism (Are they actually bigots? No more than death metal devotees in the 80s were actually Satanists, says Yiannopoulos), while virtually every critique (The Racist Moral Rot At The Heart Of The Alt-Right, says National Reviews Ian Tuttle) you will find (Responding To The Alt-Right: Are They Bigots, Or Just Stupid Children? asks The Daily Wires Ben Shapiro) of the movement (Yes, The Alt-Right Are Just A Bunch Of Racists, says The Federalists Robert Tracinski) focuses first and foremost (You Cant Whitewash The Alt-Rights Bigotry, says libertarian Cathy Young) on the obvious racism (there are elements within Hitlerism and Nazism that I admire, says Alternative Rights Alex Fontana) alt-righters dont even try to hide (I dont think we can pray away the gay, but maybe we can pray the blacks back to Africa? says tweeter @_AltRight_).

Then again, sometimes Milo just seems to be having a bit of anti-PC funlike his antiwhite bedroom policy which Yiannopoulos says he would gladly break for Daddy Trump.

Either way, race or racism is always at the center of the alt-right debate.

Theres a reason for this.

Despite Yiannopouloss promotion of cultural libertarianisma much-needed call for freer speech, which I agree withthe heart of alt-right tribalism leads to something that is definitively anti-libertarian and functionally authoritarian. The alt-right is characterized by an extreme collectivism that is unavoidably racist.

Libertarians can also be extreme in their obsession with individualism. There is such a thing as a common good and a minimal government is necessary for some basic societal functions.

There have always been libertarians who argue against any possible form of collectivism and such debates are not new. Arguments in the 1950s and 60s between traditionalists like Russell Kirk and libertarians such as Frank Meyer explored whether emphasis should be placed more on the collectivefamily, community, countryor individual human beings with inalienable natural rights.

This tension between traditionalists and libertarians is what has been considered the American conservative tradition for most of its existence. The alt-right mostly rejects traditional American conservatismthat of classical liberalism and the individualism that has always been a central focus.

The alt-right takes the traditionalist aspect of that older right ideological coalition, the collective concerns of family, community, country, to the extreme end of race.

Individuals become subservient to the collective, and the new line between friend and foe becomes who is within or without a particular group.

For the alt-right, that group is white people.

Its no coincidence that alt-righters who dont like libertarians or more traditional conservatives often refer to them as cuckservatives. The Daily Callers Matt Lewis explains the term, A cuckold, of course, is a legitimate word for the husband of an adulterous wife (but) the people who throw this term around are most likely referencing a type of pornography whereby a (usually, white) man is humiliated (or ironically thrilled) by being forced to watch his wife having sex with another (usually, black) man

So what does this have to do with conservatism or politics? asks Lewis. By supporting immigration reform, criminal justice reform, etc., a white conservative is therefore surrendering his honor and masculinity

A cuckservative is, therefore, a race traitor, Lewis notes.

The Daily Caller reported of Yiannopouloss recent event at American University, One angry audience member took his time at the mic to just call Yiannopoulos a fucking prick for expressing his opinions. The writer shot back that his adversary was a cuck, short for cuckold, which has become a popular slur among Milos fanbase to sling at opponents.

The audience roared in its approval and chanted cuck as well.

Did this young audience even know what they were chanting? Does Yiannopoulos? Or is it just for kicks?

And if so, is it even funny?

Whats going on here?

***

Whos a major cuckservative? according to the alt-right? Rand Paul. Why? For pursuing criminal justice reform, engaging in minority outreach, not demonizing Hispanics in the immigration debate and daring to criticize Donald Trump.

Rand Paul is not supposed to help non-whites, according to the alt-right. Hes betraying his tribe.

Yes, this racist tripe is what some are seriously discussing in 2016.

Its also the inevitable end result of collectivist-racialist thinking.

Criticizing extreme Black Lives Matter protesters, for example, something many conservatives do and often with good cause, can quickly become an indictment, and perhaps even hatred, of African Americansas if the average black American isnt just trying to get by day-to-day like the rest of us.

But if you go down this collectivist path, you end up forgetting about that. Individuals humanity is diminished. Everything and everyone becomes political.

It becomes as if black lives dont actually matter, and police brutality isnt even a real thing.

For the alt-right, who cares? Theyre black.

You begin to see people of a different color, people whove done essentially nothing bad or to you, as enemies.

Its a horrible and unhealthy way to go through life and view your fellow man.

Discussing immigration can become a loathing of all Hispanics. Perhaps you might even cheer a candidate who calls Mexicans rapists. Being politically incorrect when discussing the relationship between Islam and jihad-based terrorisma discussion that should happencan quickly devolve into condemnation of all Muslims and Arabs. Perhaps you might even like politicians who want to ban them from entering the U.S.

The mainstream right does this toofor every racist or xenophobic thing that Trump says, and the alt-right cheersthere are mainstream conservative outlets that indulge the same prejudices. The potential to replace the identity politics of the left with that of the rightas the alt-right hopeshas conservative radio, television, and websites that would probably not hesitate to facilitate such a trend if they were ratings and traffic getters.

Its scary. Its an unnerving time for those who value individual freedom and human dignity. The trend on the youth right for a number of years now has been toward libertarianism. This new alt-right is basically the same old racism being passed off as something high-minded or even hip.

So, yes, Im disturbed by an auditorium full of young people chanting cuck! or that the speaker theyre listening to also leads an alt-right chorus. Its not a defense of the left, who deserve every bit of scorn they receive and moreits concern for the right.

Particularly the young right.

My worry is that passionate, well-meaning, but still intellectually curious young libertarians and conservatives might wander too far into what the alt-right is peddling. Particularly in an election year when Ron Paul isnt running for president, Rand Pauls campaign did not live up to expectations and the alt-rights favorite candidate, Donald Trump, is the likeliest Republican nominee.

Even the most non-racist, liberty-minded person accustomed to intellectual pursuits could be attracted to shiny and popular new objects. Sometimes out of boredom.

***

Milo Yiannopoulos is cool. Even I think so.

But the alt-right is not, and no one should think so. Its not edgy, its not new and its not good. Its surrendering to the worst parts of our nature.

Its darkness. Its fatalism.

Just like how the crazy left condemns all whites, or males, or heterosexualsyoung rightists attracted to this movement will inevitably start judging their fellow man primarily by the color of their skin.

No matter how they spin it, thats exactly what the alt-right wants you to do.

Dont.

Martin Luther King, Jr. I Have A Dream Speech – YouTube

Martin Luther King, Jr., (January 15, 1929-April 4, 1968) was born Michael Luther King, Jr., but later had his name changed to Martin. His grandfather began the family’s long tenure as pastors of the Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, serving from 1914 to 1931; his father has served from then until the present, and from 1960 until his death Martin Luther acted as co-pastor. Martin Luther attended segregated public schools in Georgia, graduating from high school at the age of fifteen; he received the B. A. degree in 1948 from Morehouse College, a distinguished Negro* institution of Atlanta from which both his father and grandfather had graduated. After three years of theological study at Crozer Theological Seminary in Pennsylvania where he was elected president of a predominantly white senior class, he was awarded the B.D. in 1951. With a fellowship won at Crozer, he enrolled in graduate studies at Boston University, completing his residence for the doctorate in 1953 and receiving the degree in 1955. In Boston he met and married Coretta Scott, a young woman of uncommon intellectual and artistic attainments. Two sons and two daughters were born into the family

In 1954, Martin Luther King became pastor of the Dexter Avenue Baptist Church in Montgomery, Alabama. Always a strong worker for civil rights for members of his race, King was, by this time, a member of the executive committee of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, the leading organization of its kind in the nation. He was ready, then, early in December, 1955, to accept the leadership of the first great Negro nonviolent demonstration of contemporary times in the United States, the bus boycott described by Gunnar Jahn in his presentation speech in honor of the laureate. The boycott lasted 382 days. On December 21, 1956, after the Supreme Court of the United States had declared unconstitutional the laws requiring segregation on buses, Negroes and whites rode the buses as equals. During these days of boycott, King was arrested, his home was bombed, he was subjected to personal abuse, but at the same time he emerged as a Negro leader of the first rank.

In 1957 he was elected president of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, an organization formed to provide new leadership for the now burgeoning civil rights movement. The ideals for this organization he took from Christianity; its operational techniques from Gandhi. In the eleven-year period between 1957 and 1968, King traveled over six million miles and spoke over twenty-five hundred times, appearing wherever there was injustice, protest, and action; and meanwhile he wrote five books as well as numerous articles. In these years, he led a massive protest in Birmingham, Alabama, that caught the attention of the entire world, providing what he called a coalition of conscience. and inspiring his “Letter from a Birmingham Jail”, a manifesto of the Negro revolution; he planned the drives in Alabama for the registration of Negroes as voters; he directed the peaceful march on Washington, D.C., of 250,000 people to whom he delivered his address, “l Have a Dream”, he conferred with President John F. Kennedy and campaigned for President Lyndon B. Johnson; he was arrested upwards of twenty times and assaulted at least four times; he was awarded five honorary degrees; was named Man of the Year by Time magazine in 1963; and became not only the symbolic leader of American blacks but also a world figure.

At the age of thirty-five, Martin Luther King, Jr., was the youngest man to have received the Nobel Peace Prize. When notified of his selection, he announced that he would turn over the prize money of $54,123 to the furtherance of the civil rights movement.

On the evening of April 4, 1968, while standing on the balcony of his motel room in Memphis, Tennessee, where he was to lead a protest march in sympathy with striking garbage workers of that city, he was assassinated.

The Irish Senates Boycott Israel Debate | Jewish …

JNS.org Reading thetranscriptof the debate that took place in the Irish Senate on July 11 before that body voted 25-20 to criminalize commercial relations with Jewish communities in the West Bank, I was struck by how the arguments fell neatly into one of two categories.

Category one: Those who believe that a boycott of Israel is a necessary moral undertaking and seek to introduce such a policy through legislation. Category two: Those who believe that a boycott of Israel is a necessary moral undertaking, but do not agree that enshrining such a policy through legislation is the right way to go about it.

Here are some illustrations of those arguments. Speaking in favor of category one, Senator Niall Donnghaileof the nationalist Sinn Fein party invoked no less a figure than Nelson Mandelawho, incidentally, never once described Israel as an apartheid stateas he urged his colleagues to consider what is happening in Palestine, and to look at the will of the House and the majority of Irish people, who want to see us take this mode of solidarity.

Something approaching a counter-argument was offered by Senator Terry Leyden of the opposition Fianna Fil party on behalf of category two. I would certainly boycott products coming from occupied territories sold by the Israelis on the international market, but it is a different thing for a state to involve itself directly in this area, said Leyden. I advise caution.

July 20, 2018 12:04 pm

Leyden elaborated on his advice with several sensible, practical reasons, including one so grave that you have to wonder why no other Irish politician is apparently worried about it at a time when the potential impact of Brexit is already casting a dark shadow over Irelands economy. In 2017 we exported $868 million worth of goods to Israel, from where we imported $63 million worth of goods, Leyden explained, in a bid to persuade his colleagues that many hundreds of jobs in Ireland are at stake.

Boycotts are serious, Leyden continued, before adding, I do not recall a Bill being introduced here when South Africa had apartheid. When it came to addressing the rank hypocrisy that underpins the boycott of Israel, that final observation was about as far as the debate was willing to go.

Indeed, opponents of the bill were so nervous about being seen as defending Israel that they resorted to every other argument available, including opening themselves up to caricature and lampoonery in the media. I have spent hours trying to build relationships with people who will be involved in decision-making that can bring about peacePalestinians, Americans, Israelis, and others in Jordan, Egypt, Cyprus, and many other neighbouring countries, pleaded Irish Foreign Minister Simon Coveney of the ruling Fine Gael party as he made the case for a no vote. I have spent a substantial amount of taxpayers money funding my travel in these endeavors.

These endeavors, said Coveney, were aimed at rectifying the deep injustice that has been imposed upon the Palestinians for decades. And it was crystal-clear from the wider debate, whether the speaker spokefor or against the legislation, that Irelands Senate was in near universal agreement that this injustice had been imposed by Israel alone.

It is this notion of Israel as conceived in original sin, with the Palestinians cast as the Christ-like victim, that binds this soft version of the BDS campaign, which ostensibly targets only Jewish communities in the West Bank and eastern Jerusalem, with the more familiar hard version that targets everything and everyone Israeli or linked to Israel in some positive way, as most Diaspora Jews are. It is the consequence of a worldview that dismisses the Jewish nation in Israel as a foreign interloperlike the English settlers who reaped the rewards of Oliver Cromwells brutal conquest of Ireland in the 17th century or the Boers in South Africa who placed the yoke of apartheid on the black majority during the 20th.

That the realization of Jewish sovereignty in Israel should be associated with these earlier outrages is nothing new. For nearly a century, the struggle for the autonomy and independence of the Middle Easts non-Arab or non-Muslim minoritiesJews, Kurds, and Copts among themhas been ignored by Westerners in thrall to the myth that satisfying Palestinian demands against Israel will bring peace and prosperity to the region in general.

From there, it is but a short step to the embrace of some form of boycott, along with an unquestioning acceptance of the anti-Zionist ideology that underpins such a campaign. And as Ireland shows us, those who argue against a boycott can still share the same prejudiced assumptions as those in favor of it.

As it stands, the country that will be most damaged by an Irish boycott of Israel will be Ireland itself. Read the debate for yourselves and see how many Irish politicians are willing to sacrifice the jobs and livelihoods of Irish citizens for the gesture politics of boycotting Israel.

Common sense may yet prevail. If it does, none of us should be surprised when Irish politicians explain their retreat as the consequence of Zionist pressure and American bullying. After all, what other explanation could there be?

Who is Lauren Southern, and why is she doing an Australian tour?

Last week, Lauren Southerns opponents rejoiced when the controversial Canadian was denied a tourist visa for Australia; Sweet. May she continue to be denied entry to all nations, one critic tweeted.

But their joy was short-lived.

On Thursday the 23-year-old strode into the arrivals terminal at Brisbane airport, her new working visa approved ahead of her Australian tour. Emblazoned across her chest, was a single slogan: Its okay to be white.

***

This kind of statement would come as little surprise to those familiar with the ultra-conservative social/political commentators work.

A political science drop-out, Southern achieved notoriety and, yes, immense popularity via her contributions to The Rebel Media, a far right-wing Canadian political and social commentary website.

In her regular video series for the platform Stand Off with Lauren Southern she rails against mass media, multiculturalism, political correctness, Islam, feminism, and more.

In one, she pretended to be a man in an effort to undermine and mock Canadian gender identification laws. In another she attended a Slutwalk protest bearing a sign that read: There is no rape culture in the West. That particular clip has been viewed more than 2.3 million times.

So

Southern is in Australia for a tour hosted by Axiomatic Media in which she will appear alongside commentator Stefan Molyneux in a series of talks in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth, Brisbane and Auckland later this month. Some top tier tickets, which include private dinner arrangements, have sold for $750 a pop.

The tour will also coincide with screenings of her new documentary, Farmlands, which delves into the plight of white farmers in South Africa.

Its a pleasure to land here and see Australia upholding its commitment to free speech and Western culture, she said last week according to SBS, something that may not be here for much longer if left-wing Australian politicians continue their pathological worship of multiculturalism.

Pauline Hanson, for one, is welcoming Southern with open arms.

Sorry to hear about your trouble getting a visa Lauren Southern, the One Nation senator tweeted. If you are still in Oz when Parliament sits in August you have an open invitation to dinner. Id be very interested to hear your thoughts on the situation in South Africa & on Islam.

Good luck with your tour.

While she posits herself as champion of free speech, Southerns statements routinely tread into hate speech territory.

Here are just a few examples of Southerns more, erm, controversial moments:

For more in this vein you can read her 2016 book, Barbarians: How Baby Boomers, Immigrants, and Islam Screwed My Generation.

Yep.

Lauren Southern Existence and Nature – webenz.com

Why the fuss and is there justice?

Lauren Southern by all accounts is a Canadian woman with a voice, and she has gained a degree of traction in the sociopolitical sphere to the point where authorities are suddenly concerned about her. Her views are upsetting people yet those people are the namby-pamby who may be called neoliberals, who implicitly believe that multiculturalism works and the world has nothing to fear from Islam, a belief that is incredulous if you know anything of Islamic history.

Perhaps they don’t teach very much about this in schools and what they do teach is somehow glorified to give it a sense of normality although you wouldn’t want it to happen to you. The questions forced the population of Europe to convert to Christianity at the point of the sword and we don’t know how many tens or even hundreds of millions of people died who didn’t want to convert all had different views. Islam was no different, within a few generations of its inception it had spread from Saudi Arabia, West across North Africa and up into Europe, it also spread north into Persia and east across North India and down through the Southeast Asian archipelago. The history books are meant to tell us that some three hundred million Hindus died in the path of Islam.

Few people today seem to realise that Muslims have infiltrated almost every country in the world, the numbers are growing and they refuse to integrate. That’s not their personal opinion, that’s how their belief is shaped. While they make up an increasingly disproportionate percentage of the prison populations in all countries, their mosques are venues for anti-Western propaganda and the incitement of hatred for Western values and anyone who is not Muslim.

Western politicians are busy playing for the Muslim vote and giving them great concessions, ignoring the hatred spewing out of the mosques and the strategic designs for Islamic global dominance. Unfortunately there are few real human values within Islam and Laura Southern knows this. She is calling it out and perhaps because she is so blonde and beautiful, another sector of society is beginning to stir in its slumber.

Of course if enough people start waking up, governments may be forced to do their jobs and protect their people. But the governments of the world are doing such a dismal job that Lauren’s assertion of the right to bear arms represents the scenario for when government law and order fails, and nationwide she had against non-Muslims accelerates.

“With most of these migrants being jobless, they are a strain on our economy as well as police resources when crime spikes. Worst of all, they are coming in such high numbers that assimilation is near impossible. Most of these migrants are coming from nastiest Islamic regimes, and will now help increase and further radicalise the current the current Moslem enclaves continent wide. How long can Europe sustaining growing population that are entirely averse to their values? How long before Europe is no longer Europe anymore?” ~ Lauren Southern

In this video, Lauren Southern tell Paul Murray on live TV that multiculturalism will inevitably fail when people who value Western culture become a minority and that western culture possesses unique identities that must be defended against migration.

“Victorian Police (in Australia) said they will charge Canadian speaker Lauren Southern a staggering $68,000 after violent thugs threatened to protest her talk in Melbourne.” ABC news.

This really amounts to her being asked for protection money because she wants to present her point of view to an audience. International speakers come presenting their points of view in every country with frequency and governments sometimes spend tens of millions of dollars, pounds or euros to protect them and the public not to mention providing extra security for popstars and idols without charge.

This has to be the ultimate bigotry by the authorities, especially in the multicultural society where everyone is supposed to be equal and deserving of protection under the law. But it goes to show that there is a major drive to suppress such inconvenient truths and even in New Zealand, the head of the New Zealand Islamic Council has been reported as exercising some political muscle to try preventing Lauren from coming to New Zealand.

She was booked to speak at a city council venue in Auckland, but so much political pressure was brought against the Maya and the City Council that they broke their own contract and now those organising Lawrence to have to find another venue. Fortunately she has been granted a visa to enter the country unlike the UK banning entry on grounds of terrorism while welcoming Islamic extremists.

It really seems that the Western world is inviting its own destruction, it is importing a mental illness that will ultimately destroy it and the only remaining white people in the world will be those who have converted to Islam or taken safe haven in countries like Japan or China, the rest will be dead. Unfortunately the Islamic disposition that celebrates base emotion and the abdication of personal autonomy will continue to tear itself apart for the amusement of those in power. The world will return to something like the tribalism of Saudi Arabia during the time of the profit, technology will erode way, new diseases will sweep the planet and the survivors will become nomads on a toxic earth.

Perhaps this is the wheel of karma turning, the wealth of Western civilisation was built on the exploitation of everyone else. But ultimately everything came from the earth and like a failed experiment, the earth mother is taking everything back. It’s not too late to remedy the problem, but if that’s going to happen, speakers like Lauren Southern should be given full diplomatic protection and invited to speak to the governments of the world and need to take off their blinkers, dropped their selfish agendas.

If there is to be any concept of world peace, the truth must be made known as and Lauren has said, Government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem. How long can heads remain buried in sand?

Tommy Robinson appeal: English Defence League founder STAYS …

Leading judges have reserved their decision in the conviction and sentence challenges brought by former English Defence League (EDL) leader Tommy Robinson. The Court of Appeal, in London, today heard challenges by Robinson against his 13-month jail term for contempt of court. The ex-EDL leader – whose real name is Stephen Christopher Yaxley-Lennon – was locked up in May after he filmed outside a criminal trial and broadcast the footage on social media. The footage, lasting around an hour, was watched 250,000 times within hours of being posted on Facebook . The far-right activist was given 10 months for contempt of court, which he admitted, and a further three months for breaching a previous suspended sentence. The 35-year-old made a bid to have his sentence cut at the Court of Appeal in London today. Read below for recap

Al Sharpton talks to Michael Cohen, who says there’s ‘no …

Michael Cohen. Brendan McDermid/Reuters President Donald Trump’s former longtime lawyer Michael Cohen chatted with the Reverend Al Sharpton for an hour, Sharpton announced on Twitter on Friday morning. Cohen responded to Sharpton’s tweet minutes later, saying there wasn’t anyone “better to talk to!” “Just spent an hour w/ Michael Cohen, Trump’s former attorney,” Sharpton, the host of MSNBC’s “PoliticsNation,” tweeted Friday morning. “I bet you’re wondering what we could be talking about! Stay tuned.” “I have known Rev for almost 20 years,” Cohen responded. “No one better to talk to!” Cohen is the focus of a criminal investigation in the Southern District of New York into whether he violated campaign-finance laws, committed bank fraud and/or wire fraud, engaged in illegal lobbying, or participated in other crimes. The FBI raided Cohen’s home, hotel room, and office in April, seizing more than 4 million documents. At the center of Cohen’s troubles is a $130,000 hush-money payment he facilitated weeks before the 2016 presidential election to porn star Stormy Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, to keep her from talking about her allegation of a 2006 affair with Trump. The FBI sought documents related to that payment and other similar agreements with women. Trump, Cohen, and the White House denied that an affair took place. Originally, Cohen said Trump did not reimburse him for the payment. In May, Trump admitted to paying back his lawyer for the cost. Cohen has split with Trump dramatically in recent weeks. During an interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos that was published earlier this month, Cohen said his family “and this country” have his “first loyalty.” Cohen also split with his legal team and hired a pair of new attorneys. Cohen’s defense will now be guided by Guy Petrillo, a partner at Petrillo Klein & Boxer who has extensive experience in the Southern District of New York and is the kind of lawyer a person would choose if they were seeking to cut a deal with prosecutors, experts told Business Insider. In addition, Cohen brought on Lanny Davis, notable for his work as a lawyer and representative for President Bill Clinton during the Monica Lewinsky scandal.

Michael Cohens Meeting With Al Sharpton Was Intended To …

3:53 PM 07/21/2018 Chuck Ross | Reporter Former Trump attorney Michael Cohens meeting on Friday with Al Sharpton was intended to send a signal to the president, the civil rights activist says. Out of all the people he could reach out to, reaching out to me is sending a signal to Mr. Trump and I think, probably, to prosecutors that he was not one who would not deal with someone who has been fighting Donald Trump for decades on social justice issues, Sharpton said in an interview on MSNBC on Friday. WATCH: Sharpton and Cohen met at a restaurant for over an hour on Friday morning, shortly before news broke that months before the 2016 election, Cohen secretly recorded a two-minute conversation with Trump regarding Karen McDougal, a Playboy playmate who allegedly had an affair with Trump in 2006. The Washington Post reported that Cohen suggested purchasing the rights to McDougals story from AMI, the parent company of the National Enquirer. AMI paid McDougal $150,000 in August 2016 for her story. According to The Post, Trump is mostly silent in the recording. At one point he asked Cohen how the payment would be made. I received a text from him saying he wanted to meet, Sharpton said on Saturday. We met at a public restaurant and we spoke for over an hour. He was very troubled and felt in many ways cast wrongly. And I feel he was saying that he had been abandoned by Mr. Trump, Sharpton continued, adding: He was adamant that he was opposed to things that Mr. Trump was doing. Sharpton tweeted about his meeting with Cohen shortly after it ended. Just spent an hour w/ Michael Cohen, Trumps former attorney, Sharpton wrote. I bet youre wondering what we could be talking about! Stay tuned. Cohen confirmed the meeting, writing that I have known Rev for almost 20 years. No one better to talk to! Trump blasted his former attorney in an early-morning tweet on Saturday. Inconceivable that the government would break into a lawyers office (early in the morning) almost unheard of. Even more inconceivable that a lawyer would tape a client totally unheard of & perhaps illegal, he wrote. (RELATED: Perhaps Illegal: Trump Rails Against Cohen For Taping His Private Conversations) The U.S. Attorneys Office in Manhattan is reportedly investigating Cohen over his business dealings and possible campaign finance violations. Cohens payments to women are reportedly a part of the investigation. Just before the 2016 election, Cohen paid $130,000 to Stormy Daniels, an adult film star who also allegedly had an affair with Trump in 2006. The FBI raided Cohens home, office and hotel room on April 9. Follow Chuck on Twitter

Al Sharpton: Cohen is ‘sending a signal’ to Trump

The enemy of my enemy is my friend. Donald Trump is definitely my enemy, and hes gotbillions more enemies on this planet. Good God, Ive never felt so loved. Of course, if recent reports can be believed, it looks like we all have a new friend in erstwhile Trump fixer Michael Cohen. And Al Sharpton, who has known Cohen for yearsbut islight-years distant from him ideologically, is a new friend of his, too. Sharpton had a sit-down withCohen recently … at a restaurant in full view of the public. And Sharpton thinksthe encounter was fraught with meaning. From The Hill: I received a text from him saying he wanted to meet, Sharpton said. We met at a public restaurant and we spoke for over an hour. He was very troubled and felt in many ways cast wrongly. And I feel he was saying that he had been abandoned by Mr. Trump,” Sharpton continued, adding: He was adamant that he was opposed to things that Mr. Trump was doing. Sharpton told [Ali] Velshi that Cohen’s decision to sit down with the MSNBC host known for his work in the civil rights movement was a “signal” to Trump andRobert Mueller’s special counsel investigation that he was not in lock-step with his former boss. Out of all the people he could reach out to, reaching out to me is sending a signal to Mr. Trump and I think, probably, to prosecutors that he was not one who would not deal with someone who has been fighting Donald Trump for decades on social justice issues,” he said. Can there be any doubtthat Cohen is ready to flip on Trump? And if he does, is there any doubt it would be very, very bad for Trump? Stay tuned.

Meet Milo Yiannopoulos, the Appealing Young Face of the …

Milo Yiannopoulos is a beast. The 31-year-old, boastfully gay Breitbart writeror dangerous faggothas quickly become a hero to young conservatives and libertarians for smacking down the ridiculous out-of-control social justice warriors who troll college campuses. If Donald Trump defies political correctness, Yiannopoulosan avid Trump supporter prone to calling The Donald daddyobliterates it. A woman confronted Yiannopoulos during his speech in a packed American University auditorium last month, asking if his controversial rhetoric invalidated minority views. Fuck your feelings, he told her. The kids loved it. Me too. How could you not? As the student left becomes insufferably extreme, Milos become the perfect counterpunch. Hes irreverent. Hes exciting. To an old guy like mea whole decade Milos senior!hes punk rock. At 62, punctuated by a tall poof of bleached hair his friends will tell you, he is always on, whether hes railing against the matriarchy, bragging about his own fabulousness or discussing his love of black dick, wrote Fusion last year. Hes a middle finger to the establishment, left and right. Slamming #NeverTrump Republicans last week, Yiannopoulos scolded the GOP for offending young Trump supporters like himself, Unlike most right-wing writers, my biggest demographic is 18-34 year olds.

Subscribe Thank You! You are now subscribed to the Daily Digest and Cheat Sheet. We will not share your email with anyone for any reason. Those werent just any old voters you were alienating, Milo said to anti-Trump Republicans. They include the next generation of conservative firebrands, who are currently gravitating to Trump, the alt-right, and me. The alt-right. There are worse things than political correctness. *** In March, Yiannopoulos coauthored a 3,500-word piece for Breitbart called An Establishment Conservatives Guide To The Alt-Right. Although initially small in number, Yiannopoulos and Allum Bokhari explained, the alt-right has a youthful energy and jarring, taboo-defying rhetoric that have boosted its membership and made it impossible to ignore. This movement is young, they do defy taboos and unfortunately, the alt-right has become impossible to ignore. Because its racist. I dont mean racist like the left does, where merely being white and male is a sin. I mean rationalizing that youre intellectually or culturally superior because youre white. I mean believing that black and brown people are less valuable to society and should be viewed with contempt. Ive never met Milo Yiannopoulos and am not really that concerned with whether hes a racist or not. Such accusations are what the left does ad nauseam and part of what Yiannopoulos rightly fights against. But I do think he flirts with racism: The alt-right openly crack jokes about the Holocaust, loudlyalbeit almost entirely satiricalexpresses its horror at race-mixing They have no real problem with race-mixing writes Yiannopoulos. I do think he opens windows that concern me: Anything associated as closely with racism and bigotry as the alternative right will inevitably attract real racists and bigots, admits Yiannopoulos. The alt-rights intellectuals would also argue that culture is inseparable from race, he writes. I know well where this kind of collectivist thinking can lead. (You can read at The Beast about my own Southern Avenger controversy). Ive spent the last eight years as part of the Ron and Rand Paul-inspired liberty movement, speaking to groups like Young Americans for Liberty (a few YAL local chapters have sponsored some Milo Yiannopoulos events). Today, YAL is the largest center-right youth group in America. As an organization dedicated to individual liberty. The alt-right is the polar opposite of libertarianism. Analyzing a subset of the alt-right who call themselves neoreactionaries, Voxs Dylan Matthews explains this important distinction, Most modern libertarians are individualists, motivated by a desire to prevent the masses from oppressing the individual Neoreactionaries are not individualists neoreaction places huge value on group membership and group loyalty, Matthews says. They are tribalists, and for the most partlets not mince wordsthey are racists. Much of Yiannopouloss Breitbart essay defends the alt-right from charges of racism (Are they actually bigots? No more than death metal devotees in the 80s were actually Satanists, says Yiannopoulos), while virtually every critique (The Racist Moral Rot At The Heart Of The Alt-Right, says National Reviews Ian Tuttle) you will find (Responding To The Alt-Right: Are They Bigots, Or Just Stupid Children? asks The Daily Wires Ben Shapiro) of the movement (Yes, The Alt-Right Are Just A Bunch Of Racists, says The Federalists Robert Tracinski) focuses first and foremost (You Cant Whitewash The Alt-Rights Bigotry, says libertarian Cathy Young) on the obvious racism (there are elements within Hitlerism and Nazism that I admire, says Alternative Rights Alex Fontana) alt-righters dont even try to hide (I dont think we can pray away the gay, but maybe we can pray the blacks back to Africa? says tweeter @_AltRight_). Then again, sometimes Milo just seems to be having a bit of anti-PC funlike his antiwhite bedroom policy which Yiannopoulos says he would gladly break for Daddy Trump. Either way, race or racism is always at the center of the alt-right debate. Theres a reason for this. Despite Yiannopouloss promotion of cultural libertarianisma much-needed call for freer speech, which I agree withthe heart of alt-right tribalism leads to something that is definitively anti-libertarian and functionally authoritarian. The alt-right is characterized by an extreme collectivism that is unavoidably racist. Libertarians can also be extreme in their obsession with individualism. There is such a thing as a common good and a minimal government is necessary for some basic societal functions. There have always been libertarians who argue against any possible form of collectivism and such debates are not new. Arguments in the 1950s and 60s between traditionalists like Russell Kirk and libertarians such as Frank Meyer explored whether emphasis should be placed more on the collectivefamily, community, countryor individual human beings with inalienable natural rights. This tension between traditionalists and libertarians is what has been considered the American conservative tradition for most of its existence. The alt-right mostly rejects traditional American conservatismthat of classical liberalism and the individualism that has always been a central focus. The alt-right takes the traditionalist aspect of that older right ideological coalition, the collective concerns of family, community, country, to the extreme end of race. Individuals become subservient to the collective, and the new line between friend and foe becomes who is within or without a particular group. For the alt-right, that group is white people. Its no coincidence that alt-righters who dont like libertarians or more traditional conservatives often refer to them as cuckservatives. The Daily Callers Matt Lewis explains the term, A cuckold, of course, is a legitimate word for the husband of an adulterous wife (but) the people who throw this term around are most likely referencing a type of pornography whereby a (usually, white) man is humiliated (or ironically thrilled) by being forced to watch his wife having sex with another (usually, black) man So what does this have to do with conservatism or politics? asks Lewis. By supporting immigration reform, criminal justice reform, etc., a white conservative is therefore surrendering his honor and masculinity A cuckservative is, therefore, a race traitor, Lewis notes. The Daily Caller reported of Yiannopouloss recent event at American University, One angry audience member took his time at the mic to just call Yiannopoulos a fucking prick for expressing his opinions. The writer shot back that his adversary was a cuck, short for cuckold, which has become a popular slur among Milos fanbase to sling at opponents. The audience roared in its approval and chanted cuck as well. Did this young audience even know what they were chanting? Does Yiannopoulos? Or is it just for kicks? And if so, is it even funny? Whats going on here? *** Whos a major cuckservative? according to the alt-right? Rand Paul. Why? For pursuing criminal justice reform, engaging in minority outreach, not demonizing Hispanics in the immigration debate and daring to criticize Donald Trump. Rand Paul is not supposed to help non-whites, according to the alt-right. Hes betraying his tribe. Yes, this racist tripe is what some are seriously discussing in 2016. Its also the inevitable end result of collectivist-racialist thinking. Criticizing extreme Black Lives Matter protesters, for example, something many conservatives do and often with good cause, can quickly become an indictment, and perhaps even hatred, of African Americansas if the average black American isnt just trying to get by day-to-day like the rest of us. But if you go down this collectivist path, you end up forgetting about that. Individuals humanity is diminished. Everything and everyone becomes political. It becomes as if black lives dont actually matter, and police brutality isnt even a real thing. For the alt-right, who cares? Theyre black. You begin to see people of a different color, people whove done essentially nothing bad or to you, as enemies. Its a horrible and unhealthy way to go through life and view your fellow man. Discussing immigration can become a loathing of all Hispanics. Perhaps you might even cheer a candidate who calls Mexicans rapists. Being politically incorrect when discussing the relationship between Islam and jihad-based terrorisma discussion that should happencan quickly devolve into condemnation of all Muslims and Arabs. Perhaps you might even like politicians who want to ban them from entering the U.S. The mainstream right does this toofor every racist or xenophobic thing that Trump says, and the alt-right cheersthere are mainstream conservative outlets that indulge the same prejudices. The potential to replace the identity politics of the left with that of the rightas the alt-right hopeshas conservative radio, television, and websites that would probably not hesitate to facilitate such a trend if they were ratings and traffic getters. Its scary. Its an unnerving time for those who value individual freedom and human dignity. The trend on the youth right for a number of years now has been toward libertarianism. This new alt-right is basically the same old racism being passed off as something high-minded or even hip. So, yes, Im disturbed by an auditorium full of young people chanting cuck! or that the speaker theyre listening to also leads an alt-right chorus. Its not a defense of the left, who deserve every bit of scorn they receive and moreits concern for the right. Particularly the young right. My worry is that passionate, well-meaning, but still intellectually curious young libertarians and conservatives might wander too far into what the alt-right is peddling. Particularly in an election year when Ron Paul isnt running for president, Rand Pauls campaign did not live up to expectations and the alt-rights favorite candidate, Donald Trump, is the likeliest Republican nominee. Even the most non-racist, liberty-minded person accustomed to intellectual pursuits could be attracted to shiny and popular new objects. Sometimes out of boredom. *** Milo Yiannopoulos is cool. Even I think so. But the alt-right is not, and no one should think so. Its not edgy, its not new and its not good. Its surrendering to the worst parts of our nature. Its darkness. Its fatalism. Just like how the crazy left condemns all whites, or males, or heterosexualsyoung rightists attracted to this movement will inevitably start judging their fellow man primarily by the color of their skin. No matter how they spin it, thats exactly what the alt-right wants you to do. Dont.

Martin Luther King, Jr. I Have A Dream Speech – YouTube

Martin Luther King, Jr., (January 15, 1929-April 4, 1968) was born Michael Luther King, Jr., but later had his name changed to Martin. His grandfather began the family’s long tenure as pastors of the Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, serving from 1914 to 1931; his father has served from then until the present, and from 1960 until his death Martin Luther acted as co-pastor. Martin Luther attended segregated public schools in Georgia, graduating from high school at the age of fifteen; he received the B. A. degree in 1948 from Morehouse College, a distinguished Negro* institution of Atlanta from which both his father and grandfather had graduated. After three years of theological study at Crozer Theological Seminary in Pennsylvania where he was elected president of a predominantly white senior class, he was awarded the B.D. in 1951. With a fellowship won at Crozer, he enrolled in graduate studies at Boston University, completing his residence for the doctorate in 1953 and receiving the degree in 1955. In Boston he met and married Coretta Scott, a young woman of uncommon intellectual and artistic attainments. Two sons and two daughters were born into the family In 1954, Martin Luther King became pastor of the Dexter Avenue Baptist Church in Montgomery, Alabama. Always a strong worker for civil rights for members of his race, King was, by this time, a member of the executive committee of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, the leading organization of its kind in the nation. He was ready, then, early in December, 1955, to accept the leadership of the first great Negro nonviolent demonstration of contemporary times in the United States, the bus boycott described by Gunnar Jahn in his presentation speech in honor of the laureate. The boycott lasted 382 days. On December 21, 1956, after the Supreme Court of the United States had declared unconstitutional the laws requiring segregation on buses, Negroes and whites rode the buses as equals. During these days of boycott, King was arrested, his home was bombed, he was subjected to personal abuse, but at the same time he emerged as a Negro leader of the first rank. In 1957 he was elected president of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, an organization formed to provide new leadership for the now burgeoning civil rights movement. The ideals for this organization he took from Christianity; its operational techniques from Gandhi. In the eleven-year period between 1957 and 1968, King traveled over six million miles and spoke over twenty-five hundred times, appearing wherever there was injustice, protest, and action; and meanwhile he wrote five books as well as numerous articles. In these years, he led a massive protest in Birmingham, Alabama, that caught the attention of the entire world, providing what he called a coalition of conscience. and inspiring his “Letter from a Birmingham Jail”, a manifesto of the Negro revolution; he planned the drives in Alabama for the registration of Negroes as voters; he directed the peaceful march on Washington, D.C., of 250,000 people to whom he delivered his address, “l Have a Dream”, he conferred with President John F. Kennedy and campaigned for President Lyndon B. Johnson; he was arrested upwards of twenty times and assaulted at least four times; he was awarded five honorary degrees; was named Man of the Year by Time magazine in 1963; and became not only the symbolic leader of American blacks but also a world figure. At the age of thirty-five, Martin Luther King, Jr., was the youngest man to have received the Nobel Peace Prize. When notified of his selection, he announced that he would turn over the prize money of $54,123 to the furtherance of the civil rights movement. On the evening of April 4, 1968, while standing on the balcony of his motel room in Memphis, Tennessee, where he was to lead a protest march in sympathy with striking garbage workers of that city, he was assassinated.

The Irish Senates Boycott Israel Debate | Jewish …

Pro-Palestinian protesters near the Irish parliament in Dublin at a rally against Israeli air strikes in Gaza in 2009. Photo: William Murphy / Flickr. JNS.org Reading thetranscriptof the debate that took place in the Irish Senate on July 11 before that body voted 25-20 to criminalize commercial relations with Jewish communities in the West Bank, I was struck by how the arguments fell neatly into one of two categories. Category one: Those who believe that a boycott of Israel is a necessary moral undertaking and seek to introduce such a policy through legislation. Category two: Those who believe that a boycott of Israel is a necessary moral undertaking, but do not agree that enshrining such a policy through legislation is the right way to go about it. Here are some illustrations of those arguments. Speaking in favor of category one, Senator Niall Donnghaileof the nationalist Sinn Fein party invoked no less a figure than Nelson Mandelawho, incidentally, never once described Israel as an apartheid stateas he urged his colleagues to consider what is happening in Palestine, and to look at the will of the House and the majority of Irish people, who want to see us take this mode of solidarity. Something approaching a counter-argument was offered by Senator Terry Leyden of the opposition Fianna Fil party on behalf of category two. I would certainly boycott products coming from occupied territories sold by the Israelis on the international market, but it is a different thing for a state to involve itself directly in this area, said Leyden. I advise caution. July 20, 2018 12:04 pm Leyden elaborated on his advice with several sensible, practical reasons, including one so grave that you have to wonder why no other Irish politician is apparently worried about it at a time when the potential impact of Brexit is already casting a dark shadow over Irelands economy. In 2017 we exported $868 million worth of goods to Israel, from where we imported $63 million worth of goods, Leyden explained, in a bid to persuade his colleagues that many hundreds of jobs in Ireland are at stake. Boycotts are serious, Leyden continued, before adding, I do not recall a Bill being introduced here when South Africa had apartheid. When it came to addressing the rank hypocrisy that underpins the boycott of Israel, that final observation was about as far as the debate was willing to go. Indeed, opponents of the bill were so nervous about being seen as defending Israel that they resorted to every other argument available, including opening themselves up to caricature and lampoonery in the media. I have spent hours trying to build relationships with people who will be involved in decision-making that can bring about peacePalestinians, Americans, Israelis, and others in Jordan, Egypt, Cyprus, and many other neighbouring countries, pleaded Irish Foreign Minister Simon Coveney of the ruling Fine Gael party as he made the case for a no vote. I have spent a substantial amount of taxpayers money funding my travel in these endeavors. These endeavors, said Coveney, were aimed at rectifying the deep injustice that has been imposed upon the Palestinians for decades. And it was crystal-clear from the wider debate, whether the speaker spokefor or against the legislation, that Irelands Senate was in near universal agreement that this injustice had been imposed by Israel alone. It is this notion of Israel as conceived in original sin, with the Palestinians cast as the Christ-like victim, that binds this soft version of the BDS campaign, which ostensibly targets only Jewish communities in the West Bank and eastern Jerusalem, with the more familiar hard version that targets everything and everyone Israeli or linked to Israel in some positive way, as most Diaspora Jews are. It is the consequence of a worldview that dismisses the Jewish nation in Israel as a foreign interloperlike the English settlers who reaped the rewards of Oliver Cromwells brutal conquest of Ireland in the 17th century or the Boers in South Africa who placed the yoke of apartheid on the black majority during the 20th. That the realization of Jewish sovereignty in Israel should be associated with these earlier outrages is nothing new. For nearly a century, the struggle for the autonomy and independence of the Middle Easts non-Arab or non-Muslim minoritiesJews, Kurds, and Copts among themhas been ignored by Westerners in thrall to the myth that satisfying Palestinian demands against Israel will bring peace and prosperity to the region in general. From there, it is but a short step to the embrace of some form of boycott, along with an unquestioning acceptance of the anti-Zionist ideology that underpins such a campaign. And as Ireland shows us, those who argue against a boycott can still share the same prejudiced assumptions as those in favor of it. As it stands, the country that will be most damaged by an Irish boycott of Israel will be Ireland itself. Read the debate for yourselves and see how many Irish politicians are willing to sacrifice the jobs and livelihoods of Irish citizens for the gesture politics of boycotting Israel. Common sense may yet prevail. If it does, none of us should be surprised when Irish politicians explain their retreat as the consequence of Zionist pressure and American bullying. After all, what other explanation could there be? Ben Cohen writes a weekly column for JNS on Jewish affairs and Middle Eastern politics. His writings have been published in Commentary, The New York Post, Haaretz, The Wall Street Journal, and many other publications.

Who is Lauren Southern, and why is she doing an Australian tour?

Last week, Lauren Southerns opponents rejoiced when the controversial Canadian was denied a tourist visa for Australia; Sweet. May she continue to be denied entry to all nations, one critic tweeted. But their joy was short-lived. On Thursday the 23-year-old strode into the arrivals terminal at Brisbane airport, her new working visa approved ahead of her Australian tour. Emblazoned across her chest, was a single slogan: Its okay to be white. *** This kind of statement would come as little surprise to those familiar with the ultra-conservative social/political commentators work. A political science drop-out, Southern achieved notoriety and, yes, immense popularity via her contributions to The Rebel Media, a far right-wing Canadian political and social commentary website. In her regular video series for the platform Stand Off with Lauren Southern she rails against mass media, multiculturalism, political correctness, Islam, feminism, and more. In one, she pretended to be a man in an effort to undermine and mock Canadian gender identification laws. In another she attended a Slutwalk protest bearing a sign that read: There is no rape culture in the West. That particular clip has been viewed more than 2.3 million times. So Southern is in Australia for a tour hosted by Axiomatic Media in which she will appear alongside commentator Stefan Molyneux in a series of talks in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth, Brisbane and Auckland later this month. Some top tier tickets, which include private dinner arrangements, have sold for $750 a pop. The tour will also coincide with screenings of her new documentary, Farmlands, which delves into the plight of white farmers in South Africa. Its a pleasure to land here and see Australia upholding its commitment to free speech and Western culture, she said last week according to SBS, something that may not be here for much longer if left-wing Australian politicians continue their pathological worship of multiculturalism. Pauline Hanson, for one, is welcoming Southern with open arms. Sorry to hear about your trouble getting a visa Lauren Southern, the One Nation senator tweeted. If you are still in Oz when Parliament sits in August you have an open invitation to dinner. Id be very interested to hear your thoughts on the situation in South Africa & on Islam. Good luck with your tour. While she posits herself as champion of free speech, Southerns statements routinely tread into hate speech territory. Here are just a few examples of Southerns more, erm, controversial moments: For more in this vein you can read her 2016 book, Barbarians: How Baby Boomers, Immigrants, and Islam Screwed My Generation. Yep.

Lauren Southern Existence and Nature – webenz.com

Why the fuss and is there justice? Lauren Southern by all accounts is a Canadian woman with a voice, and she has gained a degree of traction in the sociopolitical sphere to the point where authorities are suddenly concerned about her. Her views are upsetting people yet those people are the namby-pamby who may be called neoliberals, who implicitly believe that multiculturalism works and the world has nothing to fear from Islam, a belief that is incredulous if you know anything of Islamic history. Perhaps they don’t teach very much about this in schools and what they do teach is somehow glorified to give it a sense of normality although you wouldn’t want it to happen to you. The questions forced the population of Europe to convert to Christianity at the point of the sword and we don’t know how many tens or even hundreds of millions of people died who didn’t want to convert all had different views. Islam was no different, within a few generations of its inception it had spread from Saudi Arabia, West across North Africa and up into Europe, it also spread north into Persia and east across North India and down through the Southeast Asian archipelago. The history books are meant to tell us that some three hundred million Hindus died in the path of Islam. Few people today seem to realise that Muslims have infiltrated almost every country in the world, the numbers are growing and they refuse to integrate. That’s not their personal opinion, that’s how their belief is shaped. While they make up an increasingly disproportionate percentage of the prison populations in all countries, their mosques are venues for anti-Western propaganda and the incitement of hatred for Western values and anyone who is not Muslim. Western politicians are busy playing for the Muslim vote and giving them great concessions, ignoring the hatred spewing out of the mosques and the strategic designs for Islamic global dominance. Unfortunately there are few real human values within Islam and Laura Southern knows this. She is calling it out and perhaps because she is so blonde and beautiful, another sector of society is beginning to stir in its slumber. Of course if enough people start waking up, governments may be forced to do their jobs and protect their people. But the governments of the world are doing such a dismal job that Lauren’s assertion of the right to bear arms represents the scenario for when government law and order fails, and nationwide she had against non-Muslims accelerates. “With most of these migrants being jobless, they are a strain on our economy as well as police resources when crime spikes. Worst of all, they are coming in such high numbers that assimilation is near impossible. Most of these migrants are coming from nastiest Islamic regimes, and will now help increase and further radicalise the current the current Moslem enclaves continent wide. How long can Europe sustaining growing population that are entirely averse to their values? How long before Europe is no longer Europe anymore?” ~ Lauren Southern ” In this video, Lauren Southern tell Paul Murray on live TV that multiculturalism will inevitably fail when people who value Western culture become a minority and that western culture possesses unique identities that must be defended against migration. “Victorian Police (in Australia) said they will charge Canadian speaker Lauren Southern a staggering $68,000 after violent thugs threatened to protest her talk in Melbourne.” ABC news. This really amounts to her being asked for protection money because she wants to present her point of view to an audience. International speakers come presenting their points of view in every country with frequency and governments sometimes spend tens of millions of dollars, pounds or euros to protect them and the public not to mention providing extra security for popstars and idols without charge. This has to be the ultimate bigotry by the authorities, especially in the multicultural society where everyone is supposed to be equal and deserving of protection under the law. But it goes to show that there is a major drive to suppress such inconvenient truths and even in New Zealand, the head of the New Zealand Islamic Council has been reported as exercising some political muscle to try preventing Lauren from coming to New Zealand. She was booked to speak at a city council venue in Auckland, but so much political pressure was brought against the Maya and the City Council that they broke their own contract and now those organising Lawrence to have to find another venue. Fortunately she has been granted a visa to enter the country unlike the UK banning entry on grounds of terrorism while welcoming Islamic extremists. It really seems that the Western world is inviting its own destruction, it is importing a mental illness that will ultimately destroy it and the only remaining white people in the world will be those who have converted to Islam or taken safe haven in countries like Japan or China, the rest will be dead. Unfortunately the Islamic disposition that celebrates base emotion and the abdication of personal autonomy will continue to tear itself apart for the amusement of those in power. The world will return to something like the tribalism of Saudi Arabia during the time of the profit, technology will erode way, new diseases will sweep the planet and the survivors will become nomads on a toxic earth. Perhaps this is the wheel of karma turning, the wealth of Western civilisation was built on the exploitation of everyone else. But ultimately everything came from the earth and like a failed experiment, the earth mother is taking everything back. It’s not too late to remedy the problem, but if that’s going to happen, speakers like Lauren Southern should be given full diplomatic protection and invited to speak to the governments of the world and need to take off their blinkers, dropped their selfish agendas. If there is to be any concept of world peace, the truth must be made known as and Lauren has said, Government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem. How long can heads remain buried in sand?
