Brussels launches new struggle against ‘Afrophobia’
The EU watchdogs have a new favorite enemy: the perpetrators of "Afrophobia". The notion has been at the basis of a resolution adopted by the European Parliament in March in order to afford privileged protection to the "fundamental rights of people of African descent in Europe".

With propaganda and dirigiste measures, a lot of money has been made available for lobbyists and profiteers to interfere in everyday life and civil liberties – and ultimately to advance the reinforcement of large-scale non-European immigration.
The agenda has not fallen from the sky either. The resolution follows the tried EU principle, which ex-Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker described so inimitably: “We decide something, put it to the room, and if no one rebels, we continue until there is no going back.”
In this case, however, someone has noticed what is going on, albeit with some delay. Austrian FPÖ politicians have warned against a plan for the “Africanisation of Europe”.
The notion of “Afrophobia” signals the direction of the latest political thrust in Brussels. Skepticism about immigration from the African continent should, analogous to similar expressions such as “Islamophobia”, be outlawed and criminalized as outdated and irrational, they believe.
While citizens are generalized as potential “racists” and regarded with general suspicion, the resolution has justified special rights for an arbitrarily selected immigrant group. And in order to justify this preferential treatment, therefore, the term “structural discrimination” had to be invented.
The categories are are also mixed up in the process. There is no distinction between long-established, well-integrated and educated citizens of African descent or newcomers unwilling to integrate, not between genuine xenophobia and well-founded reservations against, for example, criminals and social fraudsters, illicit discrimination or narcissistic persecution.
Instead, by using the usual social-justice vocabulary, the resolution only recognizes vulnerable migrants who are always “victims” and admonish the backward locals who are only “offenders” and subject to far-reaching educational and disciplinary measures.
The resolution was preceded by a series of hearings on “Afrophobia”, leftist studies on the condition of African migrants, expert groups, EU bodies, working papers and strategy conferences. This process had started long before the migration crisis of 2015.
In the resolution “Civil Society Organizations” are given an important role to play in combating “racism and discrimination” and calls for funding are multiplied.
They should also work towards a positive image of African migrants in public and remind Europeans of their “special responsibility” due to colonialism, slavery and exploitation. This implies historical political manipulation and far-reaching interference with freedom of expression and research.
The resolution of the European Parliament is thus more than a stimulus program for the social industry since its ultimate goal is to break down resistance and barriers to massive immigration from the African continent to Europe.
“Migrants, refugees and asylum seekers” are lumped together, they should all be allowed to “enter the EU safely and legally”, and “decent housing” must also be ensured, conservative columnist Michael Paulwitz noted.
The EU’s Fundamental Rights Agency FRA, in order to justify its own existence, is always in need of finding someone that is being discriminated against because its survival in beautiful Vienna depends on it, Nicolaus Fest, an MEP of the AfD and former deputy editor-in-chief of Bild am Sonntag, told Berlin weekly Junge Freiheit.
This then quickly becomes “Afrophobia” and an “institutional-structural” racism if the FRA is able to find a dark-skinned person to confirm their worst fears.
“This racism must be combated by privileging Africans and discriminating against whites. Therefore, it needs more ‘social inclusion’, or a thousand promotion measures for colored people; in schools,” Faust explains. “Colonialism then becomes the main topic; and jobs and homes are also preferrably given to people with a darker skin color.”
Faust says “all this nonsense is then poured into a ‘resolution’ that is then actually accepted by the historically unsuspecting, largely left-wing European Parliament”. It therefore becomes “self-evident that African relatives of allegedly discriminated EU Africans should be guaranteed safe entry”.
According to Faust, there is no greater enemy to the peoples of Europe than Brussels.
Germany already receives hundreds of thousands asylum applications every year, with nearly two million people having entered the state upon since 2010, according to government data.
In addition, thousands of them have returned to Germany multiple times after being deported.
German newspaper Die Welt am Sonntag cited federal government figures showing total of 28 283 deported individuals that have made at least one more attempt to remain in the country via asylum procedures.
The official data was revealed after parliamentary questions submitted by AfD party chairman Martin Sichert. The majority of asylum seekers, 22 050, applied for asylum in Germany a second time, while 4 916 made a third attempt.
And around 1 000 asylum seekers are currently have submitted their fourth application, while for others, 294 in fact, it was their fifth or sixth time.
Those who received entry bans were jailed for only a few months upon their return, with longer sentences for this transgression are rare.
According to the German Office of Federal Statistics, some 1,78 million people have entered the country seeking asylum in the last eight years. In 2019, 3 243 return asylum seekers submitted a new application.

CLIMATEThe United States' government scientific organization, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), predicts zero sunspots from 2031 to 2040. This is an extreme situation that has not occurred in as long as humanity has been counting sunspots, and it leads us into uncharted territory in terms of our solar system. However, this prediction aligns with the warnings of the world-renowned solar researcher Valentina Zharkova for many years, who indicated in 2019 various signs of this catastrophic phenomenon, including the extreme hailstorms we have seen in Europe and the world this summer. The forecast and various observations this year give cause for very significant concern. In this unique analysis, Free West Media explains why.
EUROPEAN ELECTIONSOn Saturday, August 26, representatives of six European nationalist parties gathered in Budapest. The meeting was initiated by the Hungarian party Mi Hazánk and took place in the national parliament. Representatives of the parties signed a joint declaration that not only reaffirms the parties' friendship but also their unity on a range of complex political issues. A surprisingly clear and radical manifesto was established. The hope is that this cooperation will lead to success in the EU elections and eventually result in the formation of a group in the European Parliament. For Swedish nationalism, this meeting marks a success as Sweden, for the first time, has a party represented in a leading nationalist cooperation in Europe. Free West Media was present at this historic event.
Sweden will have to wait a bit longer for NATO membership, according to Turkey's Justice Minister Jilmaz Tunc. First, Sweden must extradite the "terrorists" Turkey wants and stop the desecration of the Quran.
The Russian attack helicopter Ka-52 is considered one of the world's best and has struck fear in Ukraine, where it has hunted down tanks and other armored vehicles, often beyond the range of many light anti-aircraft systems. However, it has met its match in the Swedish air defense missile system RBS 70, which has quickly led to significant losses for the Russian helicopter forces.
Top Researchers Push Back Against Climate Lies."The correlation is as clear as day," explained the Israeli astrophysicist Nir Shaviv, who was hailed by the establishment, before his interview with Forbes was hastily deleted. What he says contradicts the climate narrative, which points to humans as responsible for Earth's climate. Shaviv firmly asserts that it is the sun that controls the climate, something that can be scientifically proven in many ways. Contrary to the popular belief, the sun's influence on Earth has, in recent years, caused unusually cold and rainy weather, a trend that solar researchers warn will worsen significantly in the coming decades. The sun has exhibited an unusually low activity since 2016, during Solar Cycle 24, which was the weakest in a century.
Alternative for Germany (AfD) held a party conference on July 29-30 to select candidates for the upcoming EU election next year. EU Parliament member Maximilian Krah, belonging to the party's more radical, ethnonationalist faction, was appointed as the top candidate. The party's two spokespersons delivered powerful speeches criticizing the EU's failed migration policy and trade sanctions that isolate Europe and Germany from the rest of the world. They argued that it's time for the EU to return a significant portion of its power to national parliaments. However, they have dropped the demand for Germany to exit the EU.
The rising popularity of AfD has raised strong concerns within the establishment. Despite lies and demonization in the media and isolation from the overall political establishment, the party continues to grow. Certain representatives of the party are accused of becoming increasingly "extreme," and in an unusual move, the influential weekly newspaper Der Spiegel demanded that AfD be "banned."
What is happening in the Netherlands? It is often difficult to follow events in other countries, especially when distorted by system media. We give Forum for Democracy (FvD) the opportunity to speak out on the political situation in the Netherlands and the staunch resistance they face in trying to save the country.
After a criminal complaint in Belgium against the President of the European Commission, the so-called SMS-case, now takes a new turn. The judge responsible for the investigation will likely gain access to the secret messages exchanged between Ursula von der Leyen and Albert Bourla, CEO of Pfizer, at least if they haven't been deleted.
Arktos has distinguished itself by publishing groundbreaking philosophers and social critics. Now, the publisher's international distributor has abruptly terminated the cooperation, and more than 400 already printed titles cannot reach their audience. There is strong evidence that the distributor has been under pressure, something that has also happened in Sweden. We have spoken with Arktos founder Daniel Friberg about the ongoing struggle for freedom of speech in a shrinking cultural corridor.
