British leaders hysterical after Trump retweets Britain First
British premier Theresa May has condemned US president Donald Trump for retweeting to his 43.6 million Twitter followers, three anti-Muslim videos posted by the deputy leader of Britain First. May's official spokesperson called Trump’s actions "wrong" and Twitter lit up with British indignation.

The three videos Trump retweeted from Jaydan Fransen of Britain First showed a group of Muslims pushing a boy off a roof, Muslims destroying a statue of the Virgin Mary, and a Muslim hitting a Dutch boy on crutches.
British Labour party leader, Jeremy Corbyn, as well as other members of parliament called for Trump’s planned state visit to be cancelled. Corbyn labelled the tweets “abhorrent, dangerous and a threat to our country”.
On Wednesday, May’s spokesman issued a statement declaring: “Britain First seeks to divide communities by their use of hateful narratives that peddle lies and stoke tensions. They cause anxiety to law-abiding people. British people overwhelmingly reject the prejudiced rhetoric of the far right which is the antithesis of the values this country represents, decency, tolerance and respect.”
Justin Welby, the archbishop of Canterbury, called the tweets “deeply disturbing” and said the US leader had “chosen to amplify the voice of far-right extremists”.
The Muslim Council of Britain called it “the clearest endorsement yet from the US President of the far-right”.
British Communities Secretary Sajid Javid said the US president had “endorsed the views of a vile, hate-filled racist organisation”.
This morning Trump rt’d 3 anti-Muslim videos posted by Britain First, far-right, ultra-nationalist political group known for Islamophobia.

Jaydan Fransen thanked Trump for the retweets. “Thanks for the retweets @realDonaldTrump,” she responded. “I’m facing prison for criticising Islam. Britain is now Sharia compliant, I need your help!”
White House press secretary, Sarah Sanders, dismissed concerns about the credibility of the videos. “Whether it’s a real video, the threat is real.”
Trump has meanwhile hit back at Theresa May’s criticism of his retweets, calling on May to rather focus on terrorism. “Theresa, don’t focus on me, focus on the destructive Radical Islamic Terrorism that is taking place within the United Kingdom. We are doing just fine!”
During her “slapstick conference speech” in October, British daily The Telegraph noted that May had been wearing a bracelet bearing the image of Mexican artist Frida Kahlo, Leon Trotsky’s girlfriend. “We’re usually the first to proclaim that a female politician’s accessories aren’t as interesting as her policies. But, in this instance, we can’t help but feel Mrs May was trying to send a message.”
Kahlo became famous only because she had had an affair with the Soviet mass-murderer Leon Trotsky – an icon also to Jeremy Corbyn – while Trotsky was hiding in Mexico.
The Russian civil war that turned Trotsky into one of the century’s leading amateur generals also unleashed his capacities as a killing machine. The sailors at Kronstadt, when speaking out, were massacred on his order.
Trotsky had a direct responsibility for the mass killings and atrocities committed by the Red Army. Industrial-scale murder had been an essential part of the murderous Bolshevik and rabbit farmer’s theory. He claimed to have carried out killings in the name of “class struggle” against the bourgeoisie; though usually the commissars are themselves from the middle-classes, and the most numerous victims have tended to be the working-classes.
In the Eighties, Corbyn however called for the “complete rehabilitation” of Trotsky. In 1988, the Labour leader – then a backbencher – demanded the Marxist revolutionary and other communists have their achievements formally recognised by the Russian state. Trotsky’s idea of permanent revolution, still deeply appeals to Corbynites.
When it became clear that the vast crime called the collectivization of agriculture would involve a massacre of the peasantry, Trotsky’s only criticism was that Stalin’s campaign was not sufficiently “militarized”, meaning that Stalin had not killed enough poor Russians.

WarsawIn the mainstream media, Poland has been branded as a country which does not respect the "foundations of democracy". But it is precisely Poland that is now at the forefront of freedom of expression on social media.

The HagueSome 240 people were arrested, mostly in Amsterdam, after riots broke out in at least 10 cities across the Netherlands on Sunday evening. On Saturday night was the first curfew in the Netherlands since the end of World War II, and police arrested scores of young foreign men and handed out 3 600 fines for curfew violations.
BrusselsCountries in the EU are theoretically bound to the neutrality obligation in its use of tax revenues: The taxpayer's money must not be used for political purposes. But just as the German government wants to spend 1 billion euros in the next four years on the so-called “fight against the right”, the EU is funding a network of “civil society” NGOs that represent clearly left-wing politics, actively combatting conservative politicians and their parties – Matteo Salvini and Viktor Orban are but two examples.
MiesbachThe most important lesson to be drawn from the Corona crisis appears that it has become a great risk to be a retirement home resident. If one is assigned to such an institution, one invariably gives up basic human rights. At first it was "only" the restrictions on freedom of movement and contact with loved ones that the elderly had to endure, but now it is the Corona vaccination, which one can hardly avoid in these custodial institutions.
GeneveSwitzerland will hold a referendum that could stop the government from imposing lockdown measures. The country has not introduced a lockdown like many other European countries, but has instead - like Sweden - mainly emphasized personal responsibility. In terms of the spread of infection and the number of deaths, it is about the same as in Sweden.
The Minister President of North Rhine-Westphalia, the most populous of the 16 states of Germany, Armin Laschet was elected as the new CDU chairman at the digital CDU party conference on Saturday. In the runoff election he prevailed with 521 votes against his toughest competitor Friedrich Merz (466 votes). In a nutshell, the party establishment pushed through its candidate, while the voter's candidate failed.
Deir EzzorThe Syrian province of Deir Ezzor is back in the news after Israel's devastating airstrikes on Syria. However, against this background, most of the Western media has overlooked other events that may prove to be far more important to the security of both the Middle East and Europe.
RomeBad news for the Democratic Party in Italy, which has seen Giorgia Meloni's party dangerously approaching them in the polls. Fratelli d'Italia (FdI) seems to be making great strides towards becoming the second largest party in the country after the Lega led by Matteo Salvini.
ParisA particularly worrying assessment of crime in the French countryside has seen the light. Crime is on the rise almost everywhere in France according to the 2020 report from the SSMI - Statistical Service of the French Ministry of the Interior .
ParisThe numbers are overwhelming, and so are the testimonials. Data collected by French pollster Ifop for the Jaurès Foundation, which had interviewed several teachers confronted with political Islam even in their classes, paint a dreary picture.
