Éric Zemmour runs for president of France. I have dubbed Éric Zemmour’s candidacy speech with my own translation and added the melody again to recreate the sentiment of his original delivery.
I don’t hold any rights on his speech and less so on its visual part, but I can safely assume Monsieur Zemmour’s consent to my use of it since it is the defining nature of a political campaign to see its material widely spread.
Long and heavy rainfalls have flooded Germany over the weekend. The most affected areas are the states Rhineland-Palatinate and North-Rhine Westphalia (NRW). 170 deaths have been confirmed, but many people are still missing. Naturally the politicization of the events is slow because even the most reckless players have an incentive not to appear too reckless and unconcerned about the plight of the people on the ground. But slowly media articles dribble down suggesting that this flood is a manifestation of the omnipresent man-made climate change. The New York Times offers additional humidity in warmer air as a reasoning. German magazine Focus expects ‘permanent rain and droughts’ to come. Both. Not much effort goes into sorting the logic out and to educate the public. In fact the New York Times mentioned explanation was crammed into a single sentence. Their readers are supposed to do all the education on their own.

Yesterday, a Chechenyan pupil beheaded his history teacher. The murderer was taken aback by the presentation of Charlie Hebdo’s Mohammet portrayal. Apparently, he lived in a microcosm where it was unheard of that, first, this picture exists, and, second, that such pictures are totally unoffensive. It points to our larger cultural crisis in which Muslims and non-Muslims alike fall under the omerta du jour.
In France, any public mention of Muslim anti-Semitism can lead you to court. In February 2017, the scholar Georges Bensoussan was sued for “incitement to racial hatred” because he mentioned in a radio debate how vastly widespread anti-Semitism is among French Muslim families.
Now, however, two types of Muslim anti-Semitism are being highlighted by the media. These two types could be called “hard anti-Semitism” and “soft anti-Semitism”.
Hard Muslim anti-Semitism is the anti-Semitism of murderers. Soft Muslim anti-Semitism is anti-Semitism of “anti-Zionists” and harrassers of various stripes.
Thanks to the Geller Report, I get to hear about the (probable) terror attack in France. I wouldn’t hear from it through German media, a shame! No, it’s disgusting! I don’t want to hear about Donald Trump’s former home being rent out and other yellow press tosh when our European soldiers are attacked and wounded. It’s sickening. Which side is our press actually on? Traitors!
Edit: Today 10th August, they start mentioning it.
The suspect arrested after the attack on soldiers in Levallois-Perret on 9 August was identified.
Born in 1980 and named Hamou B, he resides in the Yvelines zip code 78000 where a search is currently taking place, according to police sources. After several hours of cavalry, a man traveling aboard the vehicle who drove on soldiers in Levallois-Perret (Hauts-de-Seine), wounding six of them, was arrested on 9 August in mid- On the A16 motorway towards Calais, at the commune of Leulinghen-Bernes. According to police sources, the man is called Hamou B, was born in 1980 and lives in Yvelines.
A search is in progress at his home. To escape arrest, the driver hit one or more vehicles, and the police fired several times, according to a judicial source. If the investigators confirm that this was the vehicle that struck the soldiers in Levallois-Perret, they did not confirm at this stage that the driver arrested was indeed the one who overthrew the soldiers. The security forces have been tracking a BMW vehicle since the early morning after fleeing a group of Operation Sentinel soldiers four days after an attempt to attack other soldiers at the tower Eiffel.
Against the backdrop of a strong terrorist threat in France, the government denounced a “deliberate act”, and the anti-terrorist prosecutor seized the investigation.
