The War Against Tommy Robinson

Tommy Robinson arrested

Tommy Robinson arrested outside Leeds Crown Court while live streaming and jailed the same day without trial

The rule of law is fragile, and relies on the self-restraint of the majority. In a just society, the majority obey the law because they believe it represents universal values—moral absolutes. They obey the law not for fear of punishment, but for fear of the self-contempt that comes from doing wrong.

The arrest of Tommy Robinson is a hammer-blow to the fragile base of people’s respect for British law. The reality that he could be grabbed off the street and thrown into a dangerous jail—in a matter of hours—is deeply shocking.

The domestic violence industry demonizes men

feminists

(Excerpt from Chapter seven of my book, Western Civilization under Siege.)

It has been shocking to watch the attempts to reduce domestic violence morph into a worldwide domestic violence industry determined to ignore evidence showing the complexities of violence in the home while avoiding prevention strategies that would tackle the real risk factors underpinning this vital social issue.

The whole thing is based on the erroneous notion that domestic violence is caused entirely by men, out of disrespect for women.

Chinese Communist Party propaganda - Confucius Institutes

Chinese use of soft power to extend its global influence

The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) also uses ‘soft power’ to advance its influence and interests in foreign countries. ‘Soft power’ is an all-embracing term, covering propaganda, infiltration of foreign political parties and institutions, influence peddling, control of foreign media, the mobilization of overseas Chinese, and threats against dissidents.

Confucius Institutes

The Chinese government has established research centers and institutes in leading Western universities. From 2004 to 2014, it increased the number of foreign universities with Confucius Institutes (CIs) from one to 465 university campuses in 123 countries,

Western Civilization Under Seige

 This is my new book, Western Civilization Under Seige

 Under the sub-heading, The Assault on the Western Mind is a montage of faces representing what I consider to be eight of the most critical players in reshaping and undermining the culture and philosophy of Western civilization. Who are they?

This book takes a wide-ranging look at the multitude of threats facing the West and Western civilization. In my opinion, the majority of these threats are exacerbated by what I call the assault on the Western mind.

China a threat to world peace

Hegemon Rising: extract from my new book,  Western Civilization Under Siege

By Kenneth Schultz

A Short History of China

To fully understand China’s motivations and intentions in today’s world, it is useful to study some Chinese history.

Since Mao Zedong defeated the Nationalists in 1949, the Communist Party of China has grown from a rag-tag army of rebels to the largest – and arguably the most disciplined – political organization on the planet, with some ninety million members.

The word hegemony is a useful word in describing Chines politics and ambitions. Hegemony means the domination or predominant influence of one state over state or region. An autocratic ruler can also be described as a hegemon, because, effectively, he is the state.

Germany: Crackdown on Middle Eastern Crime Families

On 3-4-2013, this website ran a story from retired Australian detective, Tim Priest, titled The  Rise of Middle Eastern Crime in Australia.

The article revealed the extent of criminality of Lebanese Muslim crime gangs. Tim Priest warned that without sdustained police action, these gangs would proliferate in the future, posing an increasing threat to law and order.

The story below from Soeren Kern and published by the Gatestone Institute reveal the current dangerous level of criminality of these gangs in Germany.

"The state must destroy the clan structures."

  • Middle Eastern crime clans now control large swathes of German cities and towns — areas that are effectively lawless and which German police increasingly fear to approach. The crime families, which have thousands of members, have for decades been allowed operate with virtual impunity: German judges and prosecutors were unable or unwilling to stop them, apparently out of fear of retribution.

Hollywood creates a culture of violence

Hollywood violence 

Hollywood hypocrisy reached its zenith at the 2018 Oscar awards.  Some of the stars on the red carpet were wearing an orange flag pin which denotes the Everytown for Gun Safety campaign, a worthy cause, but one which is not well suited to those hypocrites. Hollywood has taught generations that problems are solved, arguments finalized and relationships terminated at the end of a gun. Some of the preening virtue-signallers would, no doubt, have returned to their studios the next day to work on the latest violent movie where a Bruce Willis - type actor solves a law and order problem by killing twenty or so miscreants with – you guessed it – a gun.

Milo, the champion of free speech, wows them in Perth

Milo

I attended Milo Yiannopolous's sold-out Perth show.

And what a night it was.

I arrived half an hour before the start time. Not a protester to be seen, either inside or outside the Perth Convention Centre. However, I was confronted with a massive queue that stretched the length of the centre.

When I finally entered the large auditorium it was rapidly filling up with an enthusiastic crowd. What struck me was the demographic of the crowd. I am used to going to meetings to hear conservative speakers, where the average age of the audience is around sixty. Tonight the crowd was predominately young. For once, my grey hair seemed out of place.
