One-worlders quake with fear as nationalists win elections everywhere

George Soros, his puppets and minions, are much disturbed this week by results (actual and anticipated) of elections in India, Australia and the European Union. Around the world, nationalism -- not "white nationalism", but nationalism pure and simple -- is on the rise, along with anti-immigrant backlash and pushback against the globalists' one world, "new world order" agenda.

In India, the world's largest democracy (TM), exit polls suggest that Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is on course to win the general election which has been in progress for the last two months. The official results will be announced on Thursday, but expectations are that the BJP will emerge even stronger than after its 2014 landslide, with a majority in the Lok Sabha (lower house of parliament) a possibility.

Why does this bother the gliberals? Who cares what happens in India? To find the answer, look up "Hindutva" in the dictionary. It means "Hinduness", thus "Hindu nationalism", not "Indian nationalism". (There can be no such thing as "nationalism" in a state with such a diversity of languages, races and religions!) For Mr Modi and his people (Walt uses the term advisedly) it's not "India first!" but "HINDUS first!", to the exclusion of Muslims, Christians, Buddhists and even Sikhs. The spectre of more sectarian strife, and even another shooting war with Muslim Pakistan, looms. The prospects for peaceful coexistence in south Asia are just about nil.

Meanwhile, a couple of thousand miles to the southeast, Australia's ruling conservative coalition won a "miracle" victory in last week's general election, stunning Antipodean pollsters, the (((controlled media))) and the opposition Labour party, which, like Hellery Clinton's Democrats, had been seen as certain to win. Apparently Aussie voters didn't buy into Labour's progressive plans to fight climate change and "inequality".

And there was the immigration issue, which proved to be a ballot question for the "quiet Australians" who fear being called "racist" but fear even more Labour's proposed "humanitarian" relaxation of strict border controls which have kept boatloads of bogus refugees on islands off the Australian coast. The Financial Times quotes Duncan McDonnell, a professor of politics at Griffith University in Queensland, as saying, "The heart of Australian politics beats on the right. It's a conservative country and I think there was a trend in this election in which voters asked 'if it isn't broke, why fix it?'"

And now we come to Europe, where opinion polls show populist forces set to make major gains in the European Parliament election to be held later this week. All of Europe's mainstream, pro-EU political alliances are expected to lose seats, with the big winners likely to be the Europe of Nations and Freedom group, anchored by Matteo Salvini's League in Italy and Marine Le Pen's National Rally in France.

Take note of the name "Europe of Nations and Freedom". The group rejects absolute the idea of  a "post-national" Europe run by a supra-national government at Brussels which would have the power to override the wishes of the different peoples of the different nations which comprise the EU. As the sign says, their ideas of  "power to the people" and "a Europe of free nations"  are spreading everywhere in Europe. 

Last Saturday, Matteo Salvini led a rally of right-wing populist leaders in Milan, as they campaign for the transformation of European politics. Sig. Salvini, Minister of the Interior and head of the League party, is at the forefront of a growing movement of nationalist leaders seeking to free the 28 nations of the EU from what he calls the "illegal occupation" of Brussels.

Sig. Salvini was joined by ten other nationalist leaders, including Marine Le Pen of France’s National Rally and Joerg Meuthen of the Alternativ für Deutschland. The event was a major tour de force for the expanding movement ahead of the vote that will take place in all 28 EU nations on May 23rd-26th.

In his speech, Sig. Salvini decried unchecked migration, pledging to close Europe's borders to migrants. He also attacked Islam, saying it mistreats women. He said Turkey would never be a part of Europe and rejected the label of extremists for the leaders with him. "In this piazza, there are no extremists," he said. "There are no racists. There are no fascists. If anything in Italy and in Europe, the difference is between who looks ahead, between who speaks of the future...instead of making trials of the past."

Dog lover to be deported from Oregon... eventually

Over the years, Walt has occasionally posted stories about zoophilia -- sexual attraction to animals -- described over a century ago by Richard Freiherr von Krafft-Ebing in his seminal work [Careful! Ed.] Psychopathia Sexualis. [Ed., have you seen my copy? It's not in its proper place in the library!]

Bestiality -- having sex with an animal -- is one of the few perversions still considered a crime, maybe not in the Middle East but in the rest of the world. Examples posted on WWW include horses, goats, and, from Egypt, a story about a woman who molested a monkey. Just this past March, Walt passed on a report of an illegal alien who was arrested for boffing a cow. WWW 27/3/19.

Sadly, such shockingly deviant behaviour is being reported more often than was the case before hordes of illegal immigrants started streaming across the Rio Grande to take up residence in America's stupid "sanctuary cities". This week we have a report from Breitbart News of the release from detention of Fidel Lopez -- that's him in the picture -- an illegal alien convicted of raping a dog to death. Mr Lopez, aged 52, was turned loose by the sanctuary state of Oregon after being sentenced to just 60 days in prison, for killing his girlfriend's small Lhasa Apso with kindness, so to speak. The judge in the case said he would have given the perv a longer sentence, but that 60 days is the max under Oregon law.

Mr Lopez was able to walk, after hearing his sentence, because he'd already done the time while waiting to stand trial. But what about his illegal alien status, Walt hears you ask. ICE (the Immigration and Customs Enforcement folks) had requested that Mr Lopez be turned over to them for deportation should he be released from prison, but officials in Multnomah County ignored the request and released the illegal alien into the community.

But there's a happyish ending. ICE arrested the miscreant and expect he will be deported from the US of A one of these days... unless sympathetic Democrats and SJWs intervene on his behalf.

Thanks to Agent 6 for the link to this tale of depravity, which Walt would otherwise have missed since, as is well known, he doesn't pay attention to such things!

Niagara Falls starts using "low-sound" fireworks - Walt reveals why

This is a holiday weekend in parts of the Great No-longer-white North. On Monday locals in the more British parts (i.e. not Québec) will celebrate the Queen's Birthday. Not Her Britannic Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, but the very late Queen Victoria. That shows you how up-to-date Canadians are.

In Niagara Falls -- the clean one on the Canuck side of the river -- the Niagara Parks Commission begins its nightly fireworks showed, intended to make clear to those stuck on the shabbier side of the river that people on the western side are having lots more fun. Not just two casinos instead of one, and a lower drinking age, but fireworks too!

The nightly pyrotechnic display is pretty spectacular, to be sure. And it used to be pretty noisy too. Depending on the wind, you could hear the explosions echoing through and above the Niagara Gorge, up to ten miles away -- especially those ones that explode in a small circle of white light followed by an almighty BANG! Why, they sounded just like bombs, or cannon fire. You know, the kind of noises you'd hear if you were in a war zone. And that, gentle readers, turned out to be a problem.

To understand the dilemma faced by the NPC, you need to know that (according to Agent 78, who does know), white Canadians don't visit Niagara Falls. The whities you see oohing and awing are mostly Americans, who haven't heard about Canada's changing demographics. (Merci, Justin Trudeau, et mange d'la merde!) Canadian visitor are mostly immigrants, including hordes of Middle Eastern and south Asian "refugees" and asylum-seekers. And they, poor things, have a tendency to be "triggered" by the sound of explosions. At least, that's what the SJWs told Niagara Parks.

As a result, in a display of sensitivity and political correctness unusual even by Canadian standards, the NPC has sourced some new "low sound" fireworks for the nightly show. Instead of going "BOOM", these ones just explode with an inoffensive "pop". Less bang for the beaverbuck! And so the "accommodation" of "newcomers" reaches another high... or low... depending on how you look at it.

Footnote: The same argument was used last summer to dissuade the organizers of the CNE Airshow, the largest in Canada, to cancel the show entirely because the noise of the "warplanes" could "trigger" the poor downtrodden "refugees", yada yada yada. Fortunately the CNE has more guts than the NPC. Or at least they did last year.

VIDEO: Japanese precision walking champions -- really...

And now (as John Cleese would say) for something completely different...

This video has been on YouTube since November of 2011, but only came to Walt's attention today. [It's been a slow news day, thank goodness... Ed.] There are lots of videos of military drill teams, but I don't remember ever having seen a company of civilians. The differences seem to be that (a) they're not marching but walking and (b) not carrying weapons or flags, and thank goodness for that too. Amazing choreography -- that's certainly the right word -- here, including, near the end, a backwards crossover, which I'd have thought all but impossible.

I am not very knowledgeable about the ways of the inscrutable Orientals, and am left wondering... Are these people professionals? Is it possible to be a professional walker? Or are they merely talented amateurs? Do the Japanese have clubs or societies for this kind of thing? How often do they meet to practise? You couldn't get this good just getting together every couple of months for a bit of walking and some ice-cold Asahi... could you? Is there money involved? Do they have a yen for fancy walking? [Couldn't resist, could you? Ed.] Ah, the mysterious East...

VIDEO: World leaders imagine world peace (song by John Lennon)

What follows is a fuzzy-minded utopian vision reduced by John Lennon to a simple song. Yes, folks, all you have to do is "Imagine" and everything will be just fine, in spite of the Islamic extremists. Bullshit! But this video is worth seeing, just for the technical skill involved in putting it together.

Thanks and a tip of the turban to Agent 6 for sending this along.

VIDEO: Tim Conway: Mr Tudball hires a secretary, all the outtakes

Tim Conway, the second banana who quickly became the star of the Carol Burnett Show (IMHO) passed away yesterday, at age 85. In memoriam, we're reposting the long version of the outtakes of the sketch in which Mr Tudball and Mrs Wiggins meet for the first time. There's a shorter version on YouTube, but the long version disappeared some time ago. Fortunately, Ed. downloaded it for the WWW archives. You need to see the first couple of minutes, before the entrance of Mrs Wiggins, to understand what follows. Enjoy.

Farewell, Tim, and RIP. Hope you're looking down on us from above and laughing.

Sri Lankans strike back at Muslims after Easter Jihad bombings

The south Asian island nation of Sri Lanka has been under a state of emergency since the Easter Jihad in which bombings at three Christian churches and three hotels killed more than 250 people on the holiest day of the Christian calendar. See "Sri Lanka massacre work of 'the Religion of Peace'? Hmmm?", "Sri Lanka: Suspicions confirmed; Islamic terrorists kill nearly 300" and "ISIS claims responsibility for Sri Lanka massacre of over 300 Christians", WWW 21-23/4/19.

Jesus called on his followers to "turn the other cheek", and, predictably, nominally Christian and secular world leaders, up to and including Pope Francis, called on Lankan Christians (90% of whom are Catholic) to keep calm and carry on, be tolerant, and understand that it's the Muslim terrorists who are the real victims of racism, marginalization, yada yada yada. We mustn't provoke them any more!

So the apologists for Islamic terrorism tell us, but in Sri Lanka at least some Christians are getting up on their hind feet to counter the Islamic jihad. Despite a nationwide curfew, there have been dozens of attacks on mosques, Muslim-owned businesses and Muslim people. Muslims constitute some 10% of Sri Lanka's 22 million people; Christians make up around 7.5% of the population. The majority are Sinhalese Buddhists, and it should be noted that many Buddhists have joined in the riots. Here, then, is a thought for the day.
