Geert Wilders sparks racist chant storm

20 March 2014

A parliamentarian member of the Dutch far-right Freedom Party has resigned in protest against a speech made by party leader Geert Wilders.

During the meeting he encouraged supporters to chant racist slogans against Moroccans.

Wilders addressed the meeting:

“So I ask you what do you want in this city more or less Moroccans?”

The crowd chants, “Less. less.”

Wilders continues: “We will fix it.”

The crowd laughs.

Ronald van Vliet will keep his seat, but as an independent.

The Dutch mail service has dismissed an employee for racist sayings on the Internet.

The man from Zwolle had, eg, reacted to the recent bomb attack at the Besiktas football stadium in Turkey, which killed 44 people.

He wrote on Facebook:

What a pity there are only 29 deaths, there should have been many more, but at least these 29 [people from Turkey; the initial figure in media reports] won’t come here [to the Netherlands], great.

Will British nazis be considered terrorists?


British National Action nazi march

By Charlotte England in Britain today:

British neo-Nazi group ‘to be classed as terror organisation and banned’ in unprecedented move

Fascist group tweeted picture in support of terrorist who killed MP Jo Cox

A British neo-Nazi group is expected to be labelled a terror organisation and banned in a landmark first for the UK.

An order proscribing fascist group National Action is due to be laid before Parliament on Monday. It will be the first time membership of a far-right group has been outlawed in the UK.

The self-styled “nationalist youth movement” has praised and glorified Thomas Mair, the white supremacist who murdered Labour MP Jo Cox in what a court described as a terrorism offence, and employs anti-Semitic language lifted direct from Adolf Hitler’s Nazi party.

The group’s Yorkshire branch, which is believed to consist of about 100 fascists, also encourages ‘lone wolf activism’ on its website, a phrase which usually refers to acts of terrorism committed by individuals.

Proscribing organisations is difficult because groups “often skirt around the law”, a senior government source told The Sunday TimesNational Action, however, has been deemed to have “crossed the line and glorified terrorism”.

One tweet by the group reportedly showed a picture of Mair with the message: “ … Jo Cox would have filled Yorkshire with more subhumans!”

Another read: “only 649 MPs to go.”

The group has also altered its listing on Google to read: “Death to traitors, freedom for Britain!”, a slogan which echoes the phrase Mair said in court when asked to give his name soon after being charged with Ms Cox’s murder.

Mair received a life sentence for the killing when he was convicted last month. The 53-year-old was revealed to have a Third Reich eagle monument, embellished with a swastika, and other Nazi paraphernalia in his bedroom, along with information on white supremacist neo-Nazi movements in the UK and abroad.

The Yorkshire branch of National Action has been accused of seeking to incite the murder of Jewish people, tweeting a derogatory term used by the Nazis to describe Jews during the holocaust: “Tykes gassin K#kes is our motto, #Yorkshire needs you #AntiCommunism #ProNationalSocialism #DefendBritain.”

The groups Twitter account has now been suspended.

National Action is not unique in the UK. The North West Infidels said on social media the group believes Ms Cox “got what she deserved” because of her liberal views and … urged supporters to “fight extremism with extremism”.

The British government appears to be taking the threat posed by the far-right more seriously than in the past, leading to speculation other groups could be banned in the near future.

Speaking after Mair’s conviction, Home Secretary Amber Rudd said: “I am determined that we challenge extremism in all its forms, including the evil of far right extremism.”

People at risk from far-right indoctrination now account for 25 per cent of all cases receiving help from Channel, the official scheme for those deemed likely to engage in violent extremism, The Times reported.

National Action’s monthly update for November, posted on the group’s website, dismissed reports it could be proscribed as “below discussion on grounds of extreme ignorance”.

“We neither sanction or endorse terrorism,” it said.

MPs and Peers, however, are reportedly expected to have approved the order banning the group by the end of the week.

Anyone joining or drumming up support for proscribed organisations faces criminal prosecution. Groups can also have their assets frozen.

The Home Office said: “As a matter of routine, we do not comment on whether an organisation is or is not under consideration for proscription.”

Dutch neonazi anti-mosque firebombers sentenced


This 4 January 2016 Dutch video is about the Selimiye mosque in Enschede in Overijssel province. Racists had advocated burning mosques on the Internet. The video is about security measures because of that.

Dutch daily Metro reported on 27 October 2016 about five violent extreme rightists, on trial for firebombing another mosque in Enschede.

The court convicted these five members of the xenophobic ‘Dutch Self Defence Army’ paramilitary gang to four years in prison, some of it on probation, for terrorism. People, including children, were in the mosque. The flames nearly reached a bituminous part of the building. If that inflammable material would have caught fire, then the consequences would have been lethal.

The aim of the ‘Dutch Self Defence Army’ militiamen was to scare the local Muslims and local authorities into not providing housing for refugees.

On the Internet, the men had praised Adolf Hitler. They had provided a picture of a cleaning solution with the caption ‘remover of Moroccans‘. Another picture showed an African man, run over by a car. The neonazis had captioned that picture: ‘Goddamn, now I have nigger blood polluting my car paint’.

Why Isn’t There Wall-to-Wall Coverage of The Kansas Crusaders?

Thom compares the media coverage of the arrest of three men in Kansas who were plotting to harm immigrants with coverage of previous events perpetrated by Muslims. Is the difference in coverage a reflection of the media’s views on race?

White Privilege Wages Jihad: Kansas ‘Militia Members’ Aren’t Considered ‘Terrorists’ Because They’re Not Muslim

The three white men planned to unleash a killing spree and to bomb a house of worship—what should we call them?

October 19, 2016

On Friday, the Federal Bureau of Investigation announced that it had arrested three white men, Curtis Allen, Gavin Wright and Patrick Stein, who as part of a militia group called the Crusaders planned to bomb a housing complex and mosque in Garden City, KansasAllen, Wright and Stein had stockpiled 2,000 pounds of ammunition and numerous homemade bombs to conduct the attack.

Their intended victims were Somali immigrants. In information gathered by the FBI, Stein, the apparent ringleader, told his followers, “If you’re a Muslim I’m going to enjoy shooting you in the head.” Stein also wanted his confederates to “if you start using your bow on them cockroaches, make sure you dip them in pig’s blood before you shoot them.”

The destruction and murder would have been total. Allen, Wright and Stein planned to spare no one from their hateful wrath; babies and children would be killed along with adults. Stein told his fellow militia members, “When we go on operations there’s no leaving anyone behind, even if it’s a 1-year-old. I’m serious. I guarantee if I go on a mission those little fuckers are going bye-bye.”

Their ultimate goal was to “send a wake up call” to (white) Americans about the “threat” posed by Muslims. Stein said “the only fucking way this country’s ever going to get turned around is it will be a bloodbath and it will be a nasty, messy motherfucker.”

In this political moment, the Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s tendrils are everywhere: Stein is an avid supporter of Trump and was organizing a “security detail” to protect his hero and champion when he visited Pennsylvania and Ohio in late October.

The bomb plot by Allen, Wright and Stein is part of a larger pattern. As reported by the Council on American-Islamic Relations, 79 mosques were attacked last year. The Southern Poverty Law Center has documented how the number of hate crimes against Muslims has increased this year.

The murderous actions planned by Allen, Wright, and Stein are the very definition of terrorism: politically motivated violence against a vulnerable civilian population.

The headlines from major American news outlets, however, described Allen, Wright and Stein as “militia members” instead of “terrorists.”

White privilege takes many forms in America. Terrorists are nebulous brown “Arabs” and “Muslims.” White privilege deems that such a label not be applied by the mainstream news media and in the popular discourse to white Christians such as Allen, Wright and Stein.

On these matters, white privilege also imperils public safety. Since 2002 more Americans have been killed by white Christian right-wing terrorists than by Muslims or Arabs. As reported by Duke University’s Triangle Center on Terrorism and Homeland Security in 2015, “Law enforcement agencies in the United States consider anti-government violent extremists, not radicalized Muslims, to be the most severe threat of political violence that they face.” In its announcement about the arrest of Allen, Wright and Stein, the FBI also referred to the Crusaders as “domestic terrorists.”

But the right-wing media and the Republican Party has chosen to actively suppress that information — as was the case with West Point’s Combatting Terrorism Center’s findings about the threat posed by right-wing anti-government groups, which were met with protests, derision and threats to cut research funding. In all, the image of the Muslim-Arab bogeyman with a suicide vest hiding under the beds of white middle America does more political work for conservatives than a mature discussion of the significant dangers posed by white right-wing radicals and terrorists in the “sovereign citizens” and militia movements.

White privilege also deems that certain questions will not be asked about the Crusaders and its nefarious plans to kill Somali immigrants in Garden City, Kansas.

What are people like Allen, Wright and Stein learning in their churches and other places of worship? Are the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security monitoring those sites?

Who radicalized Allen, Wright and Stein?

What role does Fox News, the Republican Party and the right-wing media play in teaching white Christians like Allen, Wright and Stein to hate Muslims?

Where were Allen, Wright and Stein’s family members and neighbors? Are they aiding and abetting them? Why didn’t they call the police earlier?

Given that 2016 Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is openly hostile toward Muslims, should he be held responsible for encouraging violence and terrorism against that community?

It is no coincidence that the Crusaders’ terrorist attack was planned for Nov. 9 — the day after the election. The political movement of fascist Donald Trump has normalized political violence in contemporary American politics. Allen, Wright and Stein’s plan to kill Somali immigrants in Garden City is a reflection of that reality.

At his rallies, Trump extols the virtues of such behavior. Like a political thug in a banana republic, Trump threatens to put Hillary Clinton, his Democratic rival, in prison if he wins the presidency. Moreover, Trump’s supporters have even been recorded as threatening Clinton’s life. Trump’s foot soldiers have attacked Black Lives Matter and other protesters and sucker punched an elderly woman in the face at a rally in North Carolina. Armed Trump minions have also pointed guns at protesters.

It is becoming increasingly clear that the question is not “will there be blood on Election Day and thereafter?” but rather how much blood will be spilled by Trump and the basket of human deplorables — a rabble that includes terrorists — over which he wields control like a political Rasputin.

At least, in the Netherlands, when a gang of Islamophobes (also admirers of Adolf Hitler) firebombed a mosque in Enschede, the public prosecutor did call them terrorists.

Three Southwest Kansas Men Charged With Plotting to Bomb Somali Immigrants

WICHITA, KAN. -Three men from southwest Kansas were charged in federal court here today with conspiring to detonate a bomb at an apartment complex in Garden City where Muslim immigrants from Somalia live and worship, Acting U.S. Attorney Tom Beall said.

A criminal complaint unsealed today alleged the men conducted surveillance to size up potential targets, stockpiled firearms, ammunition and explosive components, and prepared a manifesto to be published after the bombing. The attack, the defendants said, would “wake people up.”

“These charges are based on eight months of investigation by the FBI that is alleged to have taken the investigators deep into a hidden culture of hatred and violence,” Beall said. “Many Kansans may find it as startling as I do that such things could happen here.”

Charged with one count of conspiring to use a weapon of mass destruction were:

Curtis Allen, 49, Liberal, Kan.

Gavin Wright, 49, Liberal, Kan., owner of G & H Mobile Home Center at 1250 E. Tucker Road in Liberal.

Patrick Eugene Stein, 47, Wright, Kan.

The complaint alleges that since February 2016 the FBI has been investigating the defendants’ activities planning a violent attack against Muslims in southwestern Kansas. A confidential source [who] attended meetings of a militia group called the Kansas Security Force, providing the FBI with information about the groups’ activities.

The defendants were members of a small group they called the Crusaders. After considering possible targets including pro-Somali churches and public officials, the defendants decided to target an apartment complex in Garden City, Kan., where Somalis lived and maintain an apartment that served as a mosque. They discussed obtaining four vehicles, filling them with explosives and parking them at the four corners of the apartment complex to create a big explosion.

On Oct. 12, defendant Stein met with the confidential FBI source in rural Finney County to examine automatic weapons the source had brought from an FBI lab in Quantico, Va. After trying out two of the weapons, Stein took the source to see the apartment building the defendants were targeting in Garden City. Stein said he would provide ammonium nitrate for the bomb and contribute $200 to $300 for other materials.

Stein also talked with the source about defendant Allen’s arrest in a domestic violence case in Liberal the previous day, Oct. 11. Stein said he was concerned that Allen’s girlfriend would give Liberal police information about the defendants’ plans.

If convicted, the defendants face up to life in federal prison. Investigating agencies included the FBI, the Liberal Police Department, the Seward County Sheriff’s Office, the Ford County Sheriff’s Office, the Garden City Police Department, the Dodge City Police Department, the Finney County Sheriff’s Office, and Kansas Highway Patrol, and the Kansas Bureau of Investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Tony Mattivi is prosecuting

In all cases, defendants are presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty. The charges merely contain allegations of criminal conduct.

FBI: major attack on immigrants foiled

Today, 09:13

In the United States of America, three men have been arrested who wanted to assassinate immigrants on the day after the presidential elections, the US Justice Department reports. It it is said to have been their intention to blow up an apartment in which about 120 Somalis live.

The suspects were members of a small militia calling itself the Crusaders. The far-right militia is directed against immigrants, Muslims and the government. Those arrested are two men of 49 years old and one of 47 years old.

The FBI has foiled the plan of these three men after investigating for eight months. According to the prosecutor, the investigators found themselves in a “hidden culture of hatred and violence.”

The suspects chose the apartment building in the US state of Kansas because many Somalis live there and there is a mosque in it. They wanted to detonate four vehicles full of explosives at the four corners of the building. After the attack they wanted to distribute a manifesto.

According to the indictment the men with their action wanted to wake up America. “The only way to get this country on the right path is a bloodbath,” a suspect is said to have said.

Dutch police arrests terrorists … whoops-a-daisy, tourists

6-year-old girl on U.S. anti-terrorist No Fly List

5 October 2010

A Ohio family recently learned their 6-year-old daughter was on the Department of Homeland Security‘s ‘No Fly List‘.

Alyssa Thomas, 6, was traveling with her parents when a ticket agent notified the family she was on the list of restricted fliers.

“We were, like, puzzled,” said her father, Dr. Santhosh Thomas. “I’m like, well, she’s kinda six-years-old and this is not something that should be typical.”

When the family tried to clear up the issue with Homeland Security, they received a letter notifying them that it could not be changed.

“She’s been flying since she was two-months old, so that has not been an issue,” said Dr. Thomas. “In fact, we had traveled to Mexico in February and there were no issues at that time.”

Transportation Security Administration told that Alyssa never had any problems before because the “Secure Flight Program” just went into effect in June for all domestic flights.

“The watch lists are an important layer of security to prevent individuals with known or suspected ties to terrorism from flying,” a TSA spokesman told.

The Thomas family plans to make another appeal to Homeland Security.

In September 2015, the Egyptian military dictatorship killed twelve terroristswhoops-a-daisy, they turned out to be Mexican tourists.

Maybe Tony Blair, extremely well-paid adviser to the Sisi dictatorship in Egypt, has advised the Egyptian regime to have a very broad definition of who is a ‘terrorist’? Just like when Mr Blair was still Prime Minister of Britain? After all, the words ‘terrorist’ and ‘tourist’ both have the letters t, r, s and i. [sarcasm off]

Also in September 2015, Dutch police arrested a terrorist … whoops-a-daisy, he was a homeless teenager. However, that teenager looked like a Muslim, and according to racists all Muslims are terroristsNOT!

Now, on to today. Dutch police in a supermarket in Medemblik town have arrested two terrorists … whoops-a-daisy, they were tourists.

This time, these tourists were not suspects for having brown eyes, brown skins or headscarves. They were suspects for looking vaguely like two ex-members of the German so-called Red Army Faction (defunct in the 1990s).

For The Source of Extremism, Look No Further Than Saudi Arabia

26 August 2016

Thom talks about the connection between Saudi Arabia and terrorist organizations.

The ideology, the cruel punishments etc. of organisations like ISIS originate in Saudi Arabia indeed.

However, one should not neglect the role of other governments, eg, Turkey, Qatar, Bahrain, France, Britain, the USA, etc. in the rise of groups like al-Qaeda and ISIS.

Outrage as Microsoft’s @bing search-engine translates ‘Daesh’ to ‘Saudi Arabia’: here.

USA: Several federal agencies with responsibility for counterterrorism opened files two years ago on Ahmad Khan Rahami, the man facing charges for at least two bombings Saturday in New Jersey and New York, according to media reports. Neither the FBI nor Customs and Border Patrol added Rahami’s name to the vast US government terrorism database, the agencies claimed: here.
