Like I said in the other thread, humanity isn't ready for a global society. When/IF (and I do mean IF) humanity is ever ready, immigration won't exist. Neither will borders. That is why I said it would take another 500 - 1000 years. We are no where close to that point.

The piece described a “devastating report” that suggested 300,000 “illegal migrants” were living in the suburb of Saint-Denis, north of Paris, where drug dealing, crime and poverty were rising due to the “quite simple” explanation of “immigration on a mammoth scale”.

The article, by the journalist Andrew Malone, first appeared as a double-page story in the Daily Mail’s Saturday edition on 28 July. But it was removed online following criticism from the French activist Marwan Muhammad, a former director of the Collective Against Islamophobia in France, in a lengthy Twitter thread that raised more than a dozen issues with the piece.

In addition to criticising the overall depiction of Saint-Denis and disputing suggestions that it was a “parallel state” where no one would shake hands with “an infidel” reporter, Muhammad pointed out that it would be difficult for 300,000 illegal migrants to live there, given the official population is 110,000.

However, a Daily Mail source insisted the article had only been taken off the site temporarily and the “the intention is to restore it” after considering the complaints and correcting where necessary. The source admitted it may have confused the population of Saint-Denis with that of the department of Seine-Saint-Denis, where 1.6 million people live.

Seems fitting that his face be associated with something that can make you very sick and die.

That would suggest it was a mistake. There were no mistakes in the article, there was only deliberate misinformation. Their target audience will read it believe it to be the absolute gospel truth. They will never see the retractions and apologies for inaccuracies. If told about them, they will accuse "leftards" or "the pc brigade" of suppressing the truth.


These articles are 100% functioning as designed.

He's been busted! Although he avoided using any direct racial slurs during that video, once the situation was over and the victims had left, police found him walking up the street repeatedly screaming "F*** that (n-word)!" and arrested him. He's been arraigned for disorderly conduct already but the police are considering whether to file hate crime charges.

EVERYBODY LOOK THE EFF AT HOW THE POLICE OFFICER IN THIS VIDEO HANDLES THE INCIDENT AND READ HOW THEY HANDLED WHAT HAPPENED AFTERWARDS AND IF POLICE EVERYWHERE WOULD JUST START DOING IT LIKE THIS MY GOD

SO here's a case that just keeps getting weirder and weirder.

Three days ago, county police in New Mexico raided a squatter camp which they had been surveilling for days as part of an investigation into the possible kidnapping in Georgia of a four-year-old boy by his father, Siraj Wahhaj. The possible kidnapping had been reported by Wahhaj's father, who is an imam at a mosque in New York. The little boy apparently has a severe mental illness which impairs his ability to walk and subjects him to frequent seizures, and before the kidnapping Wahhaj allegedly announced an intention to have an exorcism done on the child, believing him to be "possessed by the devil".

When police raided the camp, they did not find the missing boy. What they did find was Siraj Wahhaj and four other adults living there, along with eleven children ranging from 1 to 15 years old living in absolute filth and squalor. They were apparently all subsisting on a box of rice and had very little water, and reportedly the police raided after receiving a request for help from someone inside the camp claiming they were starving. All five of the adults were arrested and the children were taken in by family services.

Sadly yesterday, police announced having found the remains of a young boy while processing the scene, although it has not be confirmed to be the body of the missing child.

Now I don't know about you, but to me a handful of adults surrounded by a dozen children and a small arsenal of guns living in an isolated trash-camp in the middle of the desert with no access to food, health care, or the outside world in general already screams "cult" as it is. But then today, a complete WTF moment in court when the prosecution's criminal case against the five adults was announced. According to those documents, the adults at the camp were training the children to use weapons as part of a larger plan of employing them to commit school shootings. Srsly, holy f-word.

I think a lot of the crazy stuff going on is caused by the fact that most humans no longer have a clear path for their lives. And there are so many of us crowded together.

I don't suppose when the Yanks run their tanks over the border I could sleep on your chesterfield for a few days before I make my way up to family in Kiri Kiri? I'd be pleased to buy the beer and food and admission to a cricket match.


Provided I can even access any cash at all.

Dear Americans, just in case you were beginning to think you were alone in having to deal with racist politicians, let me present for you the Australian senator who actually used the term "final solution" when discussing Muslim immigration...

Quote:
Fraser Anning, formerly of the far-right Pauline Hanson One Nation party, and now a member of the Katter’s Australia party, used his maiden speech in the Senate to call for “a plebiscite to allow the Australian people to decide whether they want wholesale non-English speaking immigrants from the third world, and particularly whether they want any Muslims”.

Hours after being released on bail on a domestic violence charge, a Utah man borrowed a small plane from his place of work and flew it directly into his house, intending to kill his wife along with himself. Fortunately she was able to escape unharmed, along with her son; Captain Bastard died instantly though.

It seems to be the case that collision with some other objects while flying low just before impact caused the plane to ultimately hit very low where the front of the house met the ground, rather than actually flying directly through the face of the building which would've had much more tragic consequences for those inside.

The plane used was one of these:
