Checkmate: Real feminists are refusing to wear the hijab

Real feminists?do not submit to the culture and values of a foreign culture and a misogynistic religion/ideology. They make a stand as all these women have done. It is no accident that all these women also happen to be highly intelligent. I suspect that their ability to think logically and to visualise what their opponent is going to do in the future is behind their principled stand against the hijab. When you think about it the Islamisation of the West is like a Chess game. Only some of us are not fooled by their use of pawns. Only some of us can see ten steps ahead and know where their attack is heading.

Marine le Pen

French…National Front presidential candidate Marine Le Pen canceled a meeting on Tuesday with Lebanon’s grand mufti, its top cleric for Sunni Muslims, after refusing to wear a headscarf for the encounter.

…After meeting Christian President Michel Aoun – her first public handshake with a head of state – and Sunni Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri on Monday, she had been scheduled to meet the Grand Mufti Sheikh Abdul Latif Derian

He heads the Dar al-Fatwa, the top religious authority for Sunni Muslims in the multireligious country.

“I met the grand mufti of Al-Azhar,” she told reporters, referring to a visit in 2015 to Cairo’s 1,000-year-old center of Islamic learning. “The highest Sunni authority didn’t have this requirement, but it doesn’t matter.

“You can pass on my respects to the grand mufti, but I will not cover myself up,” she said.

The cleric’s press office said Le Pen’s aides had been informed beforehand that a headscarf was required for the meeting and had been “surprised by her refusal”.

Marine le Pen tells Muslim cleric to stick it when asked to wear head scarf

An aide of Lebanon’s Grand Mufti Sheikh Abdel-Latif Derian, left, offers a headscarf to French presidential candidate Marine Le Pen, right.

Marine le Pen has told a Muslim cleric to shove it when she was asked to wear a head scarf in order to meet him:

Marine Le Pen, the National Front leader, has provoked a row by refusing to wear a headscarf to meet an eminent Islamic scholar in Beirut.

The French far-right presidential candidate walked out of the offices of Sheikh Abdel-Latif Derian, the grand mufti of Lebanon, after being told she could not see him unless she covered her head.

The incident is likely to bolster Ms Le Pen?s popularity among National Front supporters, many of whom are hostile towards Islam. But it may undermine her attempt to portray herself, during a two-day visit to Lebanon, as a serious future world leader, not least because the trip included her first meeting with a head of state ? President Aoun. ? Read more »

Is it an anti-establishment movement or a return to values of democracy and patriotism?

Some say that President Trump has fired up an anti-establishment movement in Europe but I think he is simply part of a Western swing back to democratic and patriotic values. Democracy is about the will of the people, not the elites and the people in America and Europe have had enough of multi-culturalism, political correctness and mass migration.The popularity of so-called anti-establishment political leaders like Donald Trump, Marine Le Pen, Pauline Hanson and Geert Wilders is proof of that.

“There is a genuine feeling that Trump taking over the White House is part of a bigger, global movement. Our critics, looking at Trump’s candidacy and his speech yesterday, would call it the rise of populism. I would say it’s simply a return to nation state democracy and proper values…. This is a genuine political revolution.”

-Nigel Farage, former head of Britain’s UKIP party, who led the effort for the United Kingdom to leave the EU.
“This disruption is fruitful. The taboos of the last few years are now fully on the agenda: illegal immigration, Islam, the nonsense of open borders, the dysfunctional EU, the free movement of people, jobs, law and order. Trump’s predecessors did not want to talk about it, but the majority of voters did. This is democracy.”

-Roger K?ppel, editor-in-chief of Die Weltwoche, Switzerland.

They may march backwards but sometimes they are cunning

The cheese eating surrender monkeys might be the world champions at marching backwards but their politicians?are sometimes very cunning.

Nicolas Sarkozy on Sunday crashed out of the race to elect a Right-wing nominee for next year’s presidential election in France, after Fran?ois Fillon, a Thatcherite with a Welsh wife, came a spectacular first ahead of Alain Jupp?.

The race to pick a nominee for the Republicans party has sparked huge interest as the winner is likely to meet – and defeat – Marine Le Pen, leader of the anti-EU, anti-immigrant Front National, in the definitive presidential run-off next May.

The ballot was open to anyone willing to pay ?2 who professes agreement with the values of the centre-Right.

In a surprise outcome, Mr Fillon was on course to finish far out in front in round one.

With almost 9,000 out of 10,000 polling stations counted, Mr Fillon was on 44.1 per cent, Mr Jupp? on 28.2 per cent and Mr Sarkozy well behind on 21 per cent. ?? Read more »

A Frog who probably won’t march backwards

The anger from voters shown in the?US is just the tip of the iceberg. In Europe, there is likely to be a bigger backlash against the sopping wet liberals who are putting nations at risk.

Marine le Pen is likely to received a big boost, despite media saying otherwise.

What might be the knock-on effect in Europe of Donald Trump?s victory? The next big democracy to vote after America is France, which holds its presidential election next spring. Could Marine Le Pen, leader of the populist National Front (FN), be elected president?

Before the American result, the question seemed absurd. Polls have suggested for months that she would do well enough to secure one of the two second-round places at voting next April. This in itself would be a victory of sorts, repeating the achievement of her father, Jean-Marie Le Pen, in 2002. But no polls have indicated that she could beat the centre-right candidate likely to face her.

Now, the unthinkable has become conceivable. There was no disguising the delight in Paris at the FN headquarters. A jubilant Ms Le Pen, who had argued that a Trump victory would be good for France, congratulated the American president-elect and praised the ?free? American people. ?It’s not the end of the world,? she declared, ?but the end of a world.? Her lieutenant and party strategist, Florian Philippot, summed up the mood at the FN: ?Their world is collapsing; ours is being built.? Even Mr Le Pen, who has fallen out with his daughter, tweeted: ?Today the United States, tomorrow France!? ? Read more »

Get ready for Nexit, Frexit and ItaLeave

After the result of the EU referendum in?the?UK there are now calls for the Netherlands, France and Italy to also have referenda on?the?issue.

The plague is spreading.

Britain’s vote to leave the European Union fired up populist eurosceptic parties across the continent on Friday (Saturday NZ Time), giving fresh voice to their calls to leave the bloc or its euro currency.

Right-wing and anti-immigrant parties in the Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden and France demanded referendums on membership of the union, while Italy’s 5-Star movement said it would pursue its own proposal for a vote on the euro.

Geert Wilders, leader of the Dutch anti-immigrant PVV party, said he would make a Dutch referendum on EU membership a central theme of his campaign to become prime minister in next year’s parliamentary election.

“I congratulate the British people for beating the political elite in both London and Brussels and I think we can do the same,” Wilders told Reuters. “We should have a referendum about a ‘Nexit’ as soon as possible.”

On Thursday (Friday NZT), Britons voted to leave the 28-nation EU, forcing the resignation of Prime Minister David Cameron and dealing the biggest blow to the European project of greater unity since World War Two.

“There is no future any more (for the EU),” Wilders said. ? Read more »

Big right-wing shift expected in French regional elections as anti-immigration message finds fertile soil

The liberal left are getting a pasting in France in elections over the weekend.

Marine Le Pen?s far-right National Front is leading in six out of 12 regions in the first round of regional elections, Reuters reports citing exit polls.

Le Pen and her niece, Marion Marechal-Le Pen, are both set to take more than 40 percent of the vote in the north and southeast of the country, TV exit polls showed on Sunday.

Assemblies in the 13 regions of metropolitan France and in four overseas territories were being elected. Results for Paris are not yet in.

The Ifop, OpinionWay and Ipsos project polling agencies predict that the National Front won between 27 and 30 percent of the ballots in Sunday?s voting, followed by former President Nicolas Sarkozy?s party, The Republicans, and President Francois Hollande?s governing Socialists. ? Read more »

Josie Pagani has bigger balls than all our MSM and the rest of the left-wing blogosphere

I like Josie Pagani, she is an honourable lefty, and someone who actually has her head screwed on right.

She has written a post at Pundit which puts the rest of the left-wing blogosphere and all of the mainstream media to shame.

Her courage should be applauded.

[T]his must be crystal clear – Charlie Hebdo, the editorial team, the cartoonists and the staff are not to blame for their own murders.

The brave and just response to the Paris murders is to stand up for freedom of speech – ?no buts, no qualifiers.

Some will use the slaughter in Paris to whip up anti-Islamic sentiments. Marine Le Pen, France?s far-right leader, has already compared Muslims in France to the German occupation of the 1940s. George Packer of the New Yorker fears ?today might very well be the day that Marine Le Pen became President of France.?

Her attempt to demonise all of Islam is tactical and ugly. The majority of muslims are peaceful and live comfortably alongside christians, jews and atheists. Anyway, the tactic of terror is to provoke a backlash against all Islam and vindicate their teaching of victimhood.

Le Pen?s views must be rejected.

But it is also true that an extremist faction of Islam does not want to live in peace and believes that purity can only be realised by killing infidels and moderate muslims.

These ideas and this barbaric strand of Islam must be named and shamed. It is just as?important?to stand up for the Kurdish muslim woman in combat gear fighting for her right not to wear a hijab, as it is to stand up for the right to wear one on?the?streets of Sydney and not be attacked.

Let them eat pork says Marine Le Pen to Muslim and Jewish schools

France’s far right leader Marine Le Pen has decreed that in towns controlled by her party they will enforce secular rules and refuse to allow Jewish and Muslim schools to offer non-pork foods to students.

Far-right National Front leader Marine Le Pen said on Friday it would prevent schools from offering non-pork alternatives to Muslim pupils in the 11 towns it won in local elections, saying such arrangements were contrary to France’s secular values.

France’s republic has a strict secular tradition enforceable by law, but faith-related demands have risen in recent years, especially from the country’s five-million-strong Muslim minority, the largest in Europe.

‘We will not accept any religious demands in school menus,’ Le Pen told RTL radio. ‘There is no reason for religion to enter the public sphere, that’s the law.’

Pork is forbidden under Jewish and Muslim dietary laws.? Read more »
