American Afghanis fined for relieving suffering of Icelandic lamb

Googling pictures of cute lambs to remind myself why I don’t eat lamb, I came across this story from July and ran it through Google Translate.

I also avoid pork.

Foreign tourists who went on Breiðdalsvík last night began to chase a lamb and cut it on their neck when they reached it. The tourists, nine men, (Gentlemen, have any of you even gone on holiday with eight of your male buddies, leaving the gals at home? Just curious. – Ed) said they intended to relieve the lamb’s suffering, but one of them was both charged and fined for the act.
Björgvin Gunnarsson, a farmer at Núpi in Berufirði, was in a food shop in Breiðdalsvík last night when he received a call from his daughter that foreigners were chasing lambs south of Breiðdalsvík, not far from Kleifaréttur. His uncle and other daughter began to investigate the matter. “Then the game had arrived there towards Breiðdalsvík and had the lamb of there by the sea and on which it flows to the sea. Then they called us over to Breiðdalsvík and the policeman who is a temporary worker, and we went to a closer look and there was only a lamb in a rubbish bag inside a big mobile home they were wearing and cut it on the neck, “says Björgvin.

Hreinn Pétursson, a farmer at Ósi, says the men were badly speaking in English. (Terrific. They can barely speak English. How did America get so lucky? – Ed.) He has counted nine people, most of whom said they were from Afghanistan but residing in the United States. Björgvin says they respected the policeman even though he was unharmed, but before he came to the place, someone else had been on the cube. “They started lying and did not want to acknowledge anything. They were just taking pictures, but when they began to thrive more, they began to relieve the suffering of the Lamb. But they did not want to recognize it immediately. They just had to take pictures and something. ”

According to information from the eastern police, the sheep were taken to the police station at Fáskrúðsfjörður, where one of them killed the lamb was fined by 120 thousand krónur, then he had already paid the farmer the damage by about 20 thousand krónur. He was also charged with violations of the Animal Welfare Act and property damage. Björgvin says that the lamb was in the range of 10-12 kilograms. “It was untrue to see the lamb cut on the neck in a black rubbish bag and the knife under the bag. It’s all unhappy with this, “says Björgvin Gunnarsson, a farmer at Núpi in Berufirði. (Emphases mine.)

Jim Goad: We Are All Charles Manson Now

Charles Manson, who for decades existed as an emblem of wide-eyed 60s idealism gone fatally wrong, died last week.

Within moments, leftist scribes rushed to disavow him and to insist he had nothing to do with leftism or the 1960s counterculture.

“Charles Manson Was Not a Product of the Counterculture,” claimed Baynard Woods against all evidence in a New York Times opinion piece:

Apart from the long hair and the casual sex, however, Mr. Manson, who spent much of his life in prison with a swastika carved into his head, had more in common ideologically with far-right groups like the John Birch Society than he did with the anarchic leftism of, say, the Yippies….The paranoid, racist and apocalyptic ramblings of Mr. Manson are the DNA of the reactionary alt-right.

As of this writing, Mr. Woods has not responded to my questions about when the John Birch Society prophesied a race war or, for that matter, even bothered to mention race. Thus I was unable to ask him a follow-up question about his feelings regarding this quote from Yippie leader Jerry Rubin:

I fell in love with Charlie Manson the first time I saw his cherub face and sparkling eyes on TV. His words and courage inspired us.

Even in India they’re trying to shackle Manson to Donald Trump and the Alt-Right. An essay in The Hindu aggressively denies that Manson was in any way a product—and especially not the reductio ad absurdum—of the 1960s counterculture:

Manson had a well-documented hatred of Jewish people, African-Americans and women. Rather than the liberal counterculture movement of the 1960s, his bigoted philosophy bears a disturbing resemblance in some respects with the far-right or alt-right brand of neo-fascism that has mushroomed in certain pockets of U.S. politics recently.

Writing for Raw Story, 85-year-old hippie icon Paul Krassner blames imprisonment and Scientology—Manson for many years claimed to be a Scientologist—rather than the 60s counterculture for molding Manson’s psychology: “Manson was never really a hippie,” he writes.

Oh, really?

Girl Guides to let transgender members shower with the girls

 

h/t tom_billesley

Teenage boys, who dress or live as a girl, will also be able to use the same changing rooms, showers and toilets as females when away from home on trips.

The controversial move comes after the group, formerly the Girl Guides Association, changed its “girls only” rule to allow transgender girls born male to join.

Yesterday the Girlguiding movement was criticised for allowing itself to be manipulated by an “extreme minority.”

“It is a shocking and ultimately sad story that the Girl Guides would decide to destroy themselves in this way,” said Laura Perrins, a former barrister and family campaigner, now co-editor of The Conservative Woman.

…It emerged in January that boys who identified as girls could join the Guides for the first time.

…Girlguiding UK had no record of the number, if any, of transgender members.

Karl Lagerfeld sparks fury over migrants Holocaust comments

Via Mark Steyn

“One cannot — even if there are decades between them — kill millions of Jews so you can bring millions of their worst enemies in their place,” he told a French television show.

“I know someone in Germany who took a young Syrian and after four days said, ‘The greatest thing Germany invented was the Holocaust,'” he added.

Several hundred people lodged official complaints about Lagerfeld’s comments, the French media regulator said Monday after he appeared on the “Salut les terriens!” (Hello Earthlings!) talkshow on the C8 channel on Saturday.

The veteran Chanel designer, who was born in Hamburg just as Adolf Hitler came to power, had earlier lambasted Merkel for taking more than one million asylum seekers since the migrant crisis of 2015.

Breitbart: UK government blasts charities for being ‘too white’

Charities must do more to ensure boards “reflect the communities they serve”, the charity watchdog has warned, after a report found the vast majority of trustees are white.

The Charity Commission urged charities to encourage applications from women, young people, and ethnic minorities, presenting research which revealed that 92 per cent of trustees are white and more than half are retired.

“There is a danger that charity trustee boards might become myopic in their views,” said the report, which was commissioned by the Office for Civil Society and the Charity Commission.

Check out the first link. What this is actually about:

  • the average age of trustees is 55-64 years; over half (51%) are retired
  • 75% of trustees have household incomes above the national median (I suppose they should be on welfare. – Ed)…
  • 71% of trustees are recruited through an informal process

is a push to make “charities” government controlled. They don’t want independent volunteers.

Winnie Mandela the movie

For decades, Winnie Madikizela-Mandela lived in the shadow of her husband, Nelson. But now, nearly four years after his death, Winnie’s own story – as the controversial, uncompromising activist who has been largely adored at home yet reviled abroad – is finally being treated as documentary-worthy in its own right.

Winnie, by British filmmaker Pascale Lamche, focuses on the grassroots campaigner in her political heyday. Featuring testimony from Nelson and Winnie’s daughter Zindzi as well as Winnie herself, now 81, it is one of a number of films emerging in African cinema that seeks to redress a long-held status quo – whether that’s about gender, race or politics.

For Lamche, who has made a number of films in and about South Africa, the prevailing narrative about the “rainbow nation” has long required that Nelson be the saint, and Winnie, the sinner.

“Patriarchy operates all over the world,” says Lamche, who won a Sundance directing award for her treatment of Winnie in the film.

Birmingham Muslims Claim Grooming Doesn’t Happen in Pakistan, Say British Society ‘Encourages’ Abusers

Pakistani Muslims in Birmingham have told ITV News their community is not to blame for the child sex grooming epidemic, saying the crimes are caused by conditions in British society.

“It is our responsibility? It is not!” declares one man, clearly indignant.

“The crimes are committed in this country; these grooming crimes are not committed in Pakistan. They are committed in this society, and it is the conditions of this society that are encouraging people to commit crimes like that,” he asserts confidently.

Those poor child rapists, seduced and victimized by Infidel decadence. Video at link.

Boris Johnson, idiot

Make the bunny Foreign Secretary.

The Foreign Office is studying a package of measures to ease relations with Iran before a visit to Tehran by Boris Johnson that has been billed as the foreign secretary’s chance to win the release of the jailed British-Iranian Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe.

On Friday, the FCO was playing down the chances of a breakthrough in the visit later this year, and stressed that any measures to ease Anglo-Iranian relations had already been under consideration before Johnson said incorrectly that Zaghari-Ratcliffe had been “teaching people journalism” in Tehran. Her family and employer have always said she was on holiday at the time she was arrested.

…The Iranian judiciary and media seized on Johnson’s remarks, made at a foreign affairs select committee hearing last week, to claim that he had revealed the truth about her activities in Iran.

Zaghari-Ratcliffe had already been sentenced to five years in prison and Iranian officials had threatened to add extra charges even before Johnson’s remarks to MPs. However, his error gave Iranian hardliners a further incentive to take a tougher line with her.

It has been reported that Zaghari-Ratcliffe had been hooded and interrogated, had cried uncontrollably when she was separated from her two-year-old daughter and had spent her first eight months in solitary confinement.

Not refugees, not children

I was interviewing ten foster parents in west London for a report on children in care. Foster parents are in great demand, so I was startled to discover that only one of the sets of parents was looking after the sort of vulnerable children you imagine to be in the care system. The others were looking after unaccompanied asylum-seeker children.

They made an alarming claim: three of these seemed to be adults passing themselves off as boys. ‘The first thing they ask for is a razor,’ said one foster parent, ‘They’ve got these big beards.’ A woman admitted she found it embarrassing having a grown man posing as a 17-year-old. But the authorities appeared uninterested. ‘Our concerns are just fobbed off,’ said another.

…The truth is, nobody arrives in this country without the help of a people trafficker. This means it is the people traffickers who control our immigration system — not the Home Office. It is they who dictate who comes here. Refugees who cannot afford to pay never make it. If we really want to help the vulnerable, we should be taking children directly from refugee camps.

…As one immigration officer at a busy UK airport with 20 years’ experience of dealing with refugee children explained to me: ‘Ninety per cent of them are not orphans. Their coming here is very well worked out. Their families have paid the people traffickers to bring them here. The intention is for the families to follow shortly after. These are cash-rich young people.’

…The immigration officer is frustrated because he knows by sight many of the ‘facilitators’ or people traffickers. These are often young men on benefits who appear mysteriously able to travel ten times a year to Dubai and Africa. They charge a high price for a personalised service in which they accompany the young migrants on the plane before leaving them at the terminal. But the traffickers have British or EU passports. ‘I have no power to stop a British citizen longer than five minutes otherwise my bosses upstairs will kick off. I can do nothing without the traffickers’ permission. Nothing — and they know that.’

Despite the security threat, few in authority appear willing to tackle the problem. When a Conservative MP suggested checking the age of young asylum seekers with dental or X-ray tests of the hand to measure bone density, he was accused of ‘vilifying’ refugees. Ruth Allen, chief executive of the British Association of Social Workers, said medical tests would be ‘very intrusive and could be re-traumatising’.

When Norway insisted on a dental examination of arriving refugee children, they discovered nine out of ten were, in fact, over 18.

The Independent: How the teachings of Islam could help us prevent more sexual abuse scandals

On the plus side, she’s probably not being masturbated at by Harvey Weinstein.

Via. Saith lying Ahmadi Qasim Rashid:

If the Harvey Weinstein sexual abuse revelations shocked you, then you’re dangerously ignorant to (sic) reality. According to RAINN, an American is assaulted every 98 seconds, one out of every six women will deal with rape or attempted rape in her lifetime, and 90 per cent of rape victims are women.

I’m a Muslim, and a civil rights lawyer with a special interest in advocating for women’s rights. My advocacy is informed not just by the law, but by strategies detailed in Islamic teachings and Prophet Muhammad’s example to pre-empt sexual abuse. Yes, the cancer of sexual abuse against women that we see in Christian majority America is just as prevalent in Muslim majority Pakistan, (not enough islam in Pakistan, I guess – Ed.), but also in Hindu majority India and state atheist China. This proves that men worldwide are failing in our responsibility to end sexual abuse and gender based violence.

…Yes, Islam implores accountability to the creator, but rather than preach empty dogmatic theories, Islam instead prescribes a proven secular model.

In a recent internationally broadcast lecture given live before roughly 6,000 Muslim women, the Khalifa of Islam said, “Chapter four, verse two of the Holy Quran…clarifies that women were not created out of the body of a man or from his rib. Rather, the Quran testifies to the fact that men and women were created from a single soul and are of the same kind and species.”

Thus, the Quran 4:2 first establishes men and women as equal beings. Chapter 4:20 then forbids men from forcing a woman to act against her will, thereby ensuring women maintain autonomy and self-determination.

…Together, we can employ a proven Islamic model that will stop this madness, and re-invoke gender equity today in America, and the world.

Tina Brown Explains How the Narrative Cake Is Baked

In the New York Times, Tina Brown, who quit as editor of the New Yorker in the late 1990s to edit a start-up glossy magazine backed by Harvey Weinstein called Talk, explains a little about how The Narrative cake is baked:

Harvey spent most of the hours of his working day ensuring that all the bad stories went away, killed, evaporated, spun into something diametrically its opposite. It was a common sight outside a Harvey opening party to see one of his publicists trapped in a car on the phone, spinning — spinning the dross of some new outrage into gold.

When I founded Talk magazine in 1998 with Miramax, the movie company Harvey founded with his brother Bob, I also took over the running of their fledgling book company with Jonathan Burnham as editor in chief. Strange contracts pre-dating us would suddenly surface, book deals with no deadline attached authored by attractive or nearly famous women, one I recall was by the stewardess on a private plane. It was startling — and professionally mortifying — to discover how many hacks writing gossip columns or entertainment coverage were on the Miramax payroll with a “consultancy” or a “development deal” (one even at The New York Times).

Harvey engaged sexual harassment’s legal bulldog, Lisa Bloom, she who brought down Bill O’Reilly and recently appeared on the stage of Women in the World’s Canada Summit as thrilling feminist avenger. Then, it emerged The Weinstein Company bought Bloom’s book on Trayvon Martin for a movie — classic Harvey M.O…

It’s interesting to speculate what percentage of tendentious liberal media projects exist mainly to pay off insiders who know too much. On top of that, what percentage of the projects that never come fully to fruition but for which somebody got […sic…] are, basically, bribes/rewards for staying on Team Liberal despite learning about your teammates?

A NEW LOW: CNN Says Russian Meddling Extended To Pokemon Go

“We have exclusive new details about the Russian-linked effort to meddle in the 2016 presidential election,” a breathless Brooke Baldwin breathlessly breathed on CNN.

Then she cut to some other amped-up guys who said the Russians used the mobile game app Pokémon Go to — stay with us here — somehow put Donald Trump in the White House.

…The goal of Operation Pokémon GO: heighten racial tensions…

…”According to CNN logic, African Americans shape their public stance playing Pokemons,” Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova wrote on Facebook, according to RT.com.

“That is how feebly the TV channel explains the emergence of racial problems in modern USA. Russians are to blame again … and the Pokemons they control.”

Ann Coulter: Media Find Las Vegas Shooter’s Motive–He’s White!

If the media are going to keep wailing about how vital a free press is, could they start reporting stuff?

There’s a remarkable number of dangling facts about Stephen Paddock’s mass murder in Las Vegas, which the media have shown little inclination to investigate…

…The sum-total of the information we know about Marilou Danley, the woman who’s been living with Paddock for years is the following: She was out of the country at the time of the attack. She’s not involved… within hours of the first indictments in the Duke lacrosse case — later, all thrown out — the media was bristling with information about the players’ parents, the homes they grew up in, the ritziness of their neighborhoods, and the tuition at their Catholic high schools. Doesn’t any reporter want to ask Danley anything?
