Ignorance is Not Bliss

German men confronting the police over migrant rapes
I left this
comment on an October 26th Gatestone column by Soren Kern, “Germany’s
Migrant Rape Crisis: Where is the Public Outrage?
“Where is the
public outrage?” The outrage did not exist because the federal government
and the local police forces withheld information about the identity of the criminals
in an effort to ameliorate public opposition to the invasion of hundreds of
thousands of “refugees,” most of whom were fully grown males. But
now, as s

poradic news stories are reporting, the German public is waking up to
the stories that have been suppressed in a futile and dishonest effort to
“educate” the public and not “stigmatize” whole races or
religions. The government and the local police would rather
“stigmatize” groups opposed to “immigration.” That policy
is also beginning to fall apart, as well. In its efforts to keep Germans in the
dark about the perilous situation Germans are in, it is laying the groundwork
for possibly a civil war between the duped Germans, immigrants, and the
government itself. What brilliance!

In the meantime,
in Britain, Her Majesty’s government has seen fit to “screen” children from the
Calais “jungle” – or rather
hide behind
physical screens their arrival and the fact that most of these “children”
are advanced teenagers or full-grown males.
In Sweden,
the government and
the press mitigate
the criminal impact of Muslim migrants on its society.
and wrote, in order to underscore the fate of
Swedes, or of Geert  Wilders, or of anyone else brave enough
to report the facts about immigration and made to suffer persecution by their
own countrymen:
Michael Hess, a local politician from
Sweden Democrat Party, encouraged Swedish journalists to get acquainted with
Islam’s view of women, in connection with the many rapes that took place in
Cairo’s Tahrir Square during the “Arab Spring”. Hess wrote, “When will you journalists realize that it is
deeply rooted in Islam’s culture to rape and brutalize women who refuse to
comply with Islamic teachings. There is a strong connection between rapes in
Sweden and the number of immigrants from MENA-countries [Middle East and North
This remark led to Michael Hess being
charged with “denigration of ethnic groups” [hets mot folkgrupp],
a crime in Sweden. In May last year, he was handed a suspended jail sentence
and a fine — the suspension was due to the fact that he had no prior
convictions. The verdict has been appealed to a higher court.
For many years, Michael Hess lived in
Muslim countries, and he is well acquainted with Islam and its view of women.
During his trial, he provided evidence of how sharia law deals with rape, and
statistics to indicate that Muslims are vastly overrepresented among
perpetrators of rape in Sweden. However, the court decided that facts were irrelevant….
Soren Kern
raises these facts:
Despite the mounting human toll, most of the
crimes are still being downplayed by German authorities and the media,
apparently to avoid fueling anti-immigration sentiments.
“The police are not interested in
stigmatizing but rather in educating the public. The impression that we are
engaging in censorship is devastating to the public’s confidence in the police.
Sharing information about suspects is also important for developing prevention
strategies. We must be allowed to talk openly about the problems of this
country.” — Arnold Plickert, director of the GdP Police Union in North
“The Press Council believes that editorial
offices in Germany should ultimately treat their readers like children by
depriving them of relevant information. We think this is wrong because when
people realize that something is being concealed from them, they react with
mistrust. And this mistrust is a hazard.” — Tanit Koch, editor-in-chief of
Bild, the most-read newspaper in Germany.
It appears
that the majority of German police entities adhere to Angela Merkel’s “Let’s
not be beastly to the migrants” policy,” and under-report, or do not report at
all, rapes committed by Muslims (and Muslims of all origins have committed
them: Afghans, Somalis, Iraqis, Turks, etc.) at all. Identifying criminals  is verboten
and “discriminatory.”
statement about the Yazidis is that they must be raped to “smash the blonde
bloodline.” Doubtless that is one of the purposes of the widespread rapes in
Germany, Sweden, Denmark, and Norway, countries with a high proportion of
blondes and blonde victims. Yet German and other European governments refuse to
ascribe to Muslim rapists the least tinge of “racism.” Yet anyone pointing to a
gang of Somali or Pakistani rapists and expressing the least hint of “Islamophobia”
is automatically deemed a “racist.”
In the
meantime, back in the U.S., damaging, incriminating facts, regardless of how
they acquired, are given short shift  by
criminal politicians and their wonks. 
Interview with Mook:
Clinton Campaign manager Robby
and longtime Clinton confidant John Podesta thought the deal ― in
which Clinton had committed to speak at an event for the king[of Morocco]
on the condition of his $12 million donation ― would look bad. Clinton aide
Huma Abedin tried to explain that it was simply too late to back out.
“Why wasn’t that classic pay-to-play?” Wallace asked.
“There’s nothing new here,” Mook replied, deflecting to
Donald Trump’s sagging poll numbers.
“But, Robby, there is some new stuff,” Wallace responded. “Emails
show ― and I’m going to go through some of them ― you were not happy
at all the idea of this meeting and her going there.”
Mook maintained that it was all just a scheduling issue
that had nothing to do with corruption or public perceptions of corruption.
“We didn’t want her going overseas,” Mook said. “I didn’t
want her going overseas before the campaign was kicking off. Again, these are stolen documents.”[Italics mine]
Ergo, the information about
the illicit activities committed by the Clinton campaign is nullified? Not
admissible in a court of law because the emails proving the existence of
criminal activity were stolen?
Suppose Eliot Ness of TheUntouchables (a fine TV crime series until it succumbed to early PC) purloined a series of memos between Al Capone to Frank Nitty about
what to do about the Bugsy
Moran gang.
“We got to deal with these buggers. Can we rub them out without
getting a lot of bad press? Without everybody pointing fingers at me?” “Yeah,
Al. Got to call a pow-wow between us and Bugsy’s people. Lure them into a trap.
A garage would be perfect. Got to be stealthy like. Send in a bunch of our
boys, some of them dressed like cops. Then let them have it. Use machine guns
to be thorough. Let me handle the details and the press.”
Would that exchange be
admitted as evidence in court because the memos were “stolen.”? Would Capone be
indicted, tried, and jailed for conspiracy to murder and being an accessory to
murder, instead of being jailed for the paltry charge of income tax evasion, as
actually happened?  Members of the Moran
gang were indeed murdered execution style by Capone’s men.
Possibly Ness’s purloined
(or “hacked”) Capone-Nitty correspondence would be admissible in court, but
then that was another era.
Let’s go one further:
Suppose the mayor of Chicago had criminal connections to Capone and his gang, and
wanted the whole Bugsy Moran or St. Valentine’s Day massacre issue removed from
police and court records. and also removed from “public” consciousness. Would the
massacre have actually occurred? Possibly, but it would have been written off
as “just a bunch of yeggs with mental problems.” Yes. But there is no longer a
record of it. The public is left in the dark. The mayor issues a public statement
to the effect that all the rumors that Capone was responsible were false and slander
the good name of Capone (PPBUP or
Benedizioni e la pace sia su
nostro pisano
So, if the documents were
not stolen, the information would still be festering inside the emails, but no
one would know about it or have any knowledge of the wrong-doing. We would
remain ignorant of the corruption and the scale of that corruption aside from
the King of Morocco issue. Is that what you’re saying? That evidence of
duplicity, if not revealed, would not be judged, or enter into anything because
you might have been successful in suppressing the information, regardless of
the legality of the hacked emails.
Welcome to the universe of thoughtcrime.
Let’s imagine for a moment
that someone was able to hack into the records of the Dusseldorf police, and
the records showed not only how many rapes of German women had been committed
and reported, but the specific “migrant” identities of the criminals, most of
whom were handed light to non-existence sentences. None of that information had
been released, and the public was ignorant of it, even though much of the public
knew something was terribly wrong.  
An episode in Muslim “cultural enrichment”
Suppose the hacker
published that information on his own blog site, a la Wikileaks,  causing an outrage, knowing that no German
newspaper would publish the information lest they be reprimanded by the German
Press Council or its employees even imprisoned and fined. The police track down
the owner of the blog site and he is arrested for “theft” of government property
(the information coming under the rubric of “security), and for instigating “hate,”
“bigotry,” and the “blasphemous libeling” of a racial, ethnic, and religious “minority.”
Soren Kern added:
Germany’s migrant rape crisis — which has continued
unabated day after day for more than a year — has now spread to cities and
towns in all 16 of Germany’s federal states. Despite the mounting human toll,
most of the crimes are still being downplayed by German authorities and the
media, apparently to avoid fueling anti-immigration sentiments.
The German Press Council (Presserat) enforces a
politically correct “code of media ethics” that restricts the
information journalists can use in their stories. Paragraph 12.1 of the code states:
reporting on criminal offenses, details about the religious, ethnic or other
background information of the suspects or perpetrators is to be mentioned only
if it is absolutely necessary (begründeter
) to understand the reported event. Remember that such
references could foment prejudices against minorities.”
On October 17, the Press Council reprimanded the weekly newspaper, Junge Freiheit,
for revealing the nationality of three Afghan teenagers who raped a woman at a
train station in Vienna, Austria, in April 2016. The press council said the
nationality of the perpetrators is “not relevant” to the case, and by
revealing this information the newspaper “deliberately and pejoratively
represented the suspects as second-class persons.”
On the other hand, it’s
okay for Muslim preachers to advocate war against the West and to take sex
slaves. Ali Hammuda, a Muslim cleric in Cardiff, Wales announced in July to his
teenage audience, as reported in the Daily
“One of the interpretations as to what this means is that
towards the end of time there will be many wars like what we are seeing today,
and because of these wars women will be taken as captives, as slaves, yeah,
women will be taken as slaves.
“And then, er, her master has relations with her because
this is permissible in Islam, it’s permissible to have relations with a woman who
is your slave or your wife.”

Sharia will dominate the world, even if perpetrators must show up in court and
be slapped on the wrist, leaving their victims to deal with the rapes and
fearing more.  But Westerners are not
supposed to fear that, or even know about it. That’s thoughtcrime, Islamophobia!  As far as the State is concerned, when it
comes to reporting Muslim crimes, “mum’s the word.” The State doesn’t
want you to know
Ignorance can be bliss,
until you’re raped. And even dead.


Parallels in Evil: Part II


The Ubiquity of Lies


  1. Edward Cline

    Ignorance is indeed not bliss. An ignorance of a present and predatory peril is not conducive to a peace of mind. Those responsible for informing one of that peril have abdicated their role as protectors in favor of siding with the predators. They are contemptible and as despicable as the predators.

  2. Rob McVey

    Ed, Indeed, it should be made explicit that, as you say, "Those responsible for informing one of that peril …" include the media whose very profession is the conduit from events to us; as well as police to announce perils and profiled types of which to be wary.

    Good piece; we need more exposure of the authorities' ostrich behavior.

    Re this revelation about Britain's Calais "children": France is blaming Britain for the plight of those "children," most of whom are expert system "gamers" who are adult males: see this Reuters article (which does not allow comments allowing one to contradict or educate Reuters): "In the meantime, in Britain, Her Majesty’s government has seen fit to “screen” children from the Calais “jungle” – or rather hide behind physical screens their arrival and the fact that most of these “children” are advanced teenagers or full-grown males.
