While last week’s New Zealand massacre continues to dominate headlines, the New York Times has not yet fully memoryholed yesterday’s attempt by an African immigrant to burn alive 50 children in Italy to protest limits on African immigration. From today’s Times:

Call to Speed Italian Citizenship for Boy Who Made SOS Call
By The Associated Press
March 21, 2019

MILAN — The leader of Italy’s 5-Star Movement says the country should grant citizenship to a 13-year-old Egyptian boy hailed as a hero for alerting police that he and his middle school classmates had been abducted by their bus driver.

Luigi Di Maio said Thursday that Ramy Shehata “put his life at risk to save that of his classmates,” and that he would ask Italy’s premier to confer citizenship for special merit. …

  1. The African saviour trope…

    Damn they are fu*king good. They can focus on a story that fits their narrative, and blow it out of proportion to gaslight the majority into thinking whatever they want them to believe. They can just as easily memoryhole a story that doesn’t quite fit. And now they show the ability to get mileage out of a story that by all means they should have memoryholed.

    What could be better for them? They get to show that they in fact do cover stories involving migrant crime, but now they get to focus on the non-citizen ‘hero’, and don’t have to show pity towards the natives who would never have been threatened like this in the first place had migrants not been accepted.

    This dishonesty is similar to government reports “establishing” that white supremacists are the biggest terror threat by changing definitions and indulging in basic mathematical lying.

    This morning BBC radio interviewed a public broadcaster from New Zealand who assures us that the people are united in admiration for the leader’s swift leadership and unanimously support the sweeping new restrictions which include the seizure of property by executive order (and not law or referendum) and imprisonment for viewing videos. That’s very nearly her wording.

  4. So, a cagey hyena saunters into a pride of lions feeble-minded by some neurotoxic parasite. The hyena suavely offers to look after the cubs while the lionesses go about their business.

    “Swell, thanks; we’ll provide you meat from the hunting we can get done while we are away!”

    What could possibly go wrong, leaving a ravenous hyena with defenceless cubs?! Whoever heard if a hyena or jackal causing problems for lions, anyway?!

    (Needless to say, those adult, male lions not also rendered impotent by the neurotoxic parasites have been spurned by the females and driven away by the infected lions of both sexes.)

    ‘Member in the bad, old, boring days of the patriarchy – when lionesses looked after cubs, and male lions destroyed any hyenas who came anywhere near the pride? Pepperidge Farm remembers!

  5. The NYT forgets to mention that it’s a package deal. The little Egyptian nipper and his extended family of 28 will turn out to be the final count when it comes to Italian citizenship!

  6. Ed says:

    As long as they strip the citizenship of the Senegalese guy and deport him. I don’t see a problem.

  7. Hmm. Maybe Italians will reject the murder of innocent children by a vibrant, diverse, inclusively excellent immigrant. I think that is what most will do, but hey, I am just an unreconstructed, hapless, unwoke bystander.

    Unbelievable. How did this rapist get in from Congo I wonder. On a diversity visa? More reason to end that stupid program, another brilliant idea from Bill Clinton.

    The guy is 15 years old and is 6’1″, 210 pounds? Sounds mighty suspicious to me. More likely he is in his twenties, either the mother doesn’t know how to count or she lied about his age.

    So I think we can safely assume without any prejudice whatsoever that all “public broadcasters” around the world imitate Radio Pyongyang when it comes to State Approved Gun Confiscations.

    Nope, another kick in the nuts from the Bush family, Bush 41 having signed into law the Immigration Act of 1990, which established the current and permanent Diversity Visa (DV) program.

    Indeed, all ya gotta do is put words in his mouth, and Steve (or anyone really) becomes a low-g OG. Who here doesn’t remember the sabermetric discussion where Steve said he wanted to punt newborn babies like an American football, only do it over a national border because that way it’s not illegal and the babies will almost certainly be rescued by socialized medicine? That was a good thread.

  17. Ha, the NY Times outsmarted itself this time. “Ramy Shehata” is a Coptic Christian name. So, assuming the boy hero is a Copt, he is exactly the kind of immigrant Italy needs–heroic, Christian, and ethnocentric. Even based Hungary has welcomed some immigrants, like Syrian Orthodox Christians.

    A million miles short of Jupiter’s orbit, moving well above the plane of the solar system, Phssthpok matched velocities with the native ship and began to close in.

    Of the thousands of sentient species in the galaxy, Phssthpok and Phssthpok’s race had studied only their own. When they ran across other species, as in the mining of nearby systems for raw materials, they destroyed them as quickly and safely as possible. Aliens were dangerous, or might be, and Pak were not interested in anything but Pak. A protector’s intelligence was high; but intelligence is a tool to be used toward a goal, and goals are not always chosen intelligently.

    Phssthpok was working strictly from ignorance. All he could do was guess.

    That was hard to read; a chronicle of a society swirling the drain. Just flat out destruction.

    To echo Autochthon’s above comment, we’ve got an immigration system rendered feeble-minded by some neurotoxic parasite that feeds hyenas into an education system rendered feeble-minded by some neurotoxic parasite and now the hyena is further weaponized and emboldened by a judge who has been rendered feeble-minded by some neurotoxic parasite.

    The irony is that black Africans ‘voluntarily’ keep out of Egypt – even though according to standard Economist theory they’d ‘boost both their own and Egyptian incomes’ by merely walking across an internal African border – mainly due to the fact that if they even *thought* of pulling shit like this in Egypt, they would, literally, taste Hell.

    Migration from Congo shot up during the Obama years. Through a combination of diversity visas and refugee resettlement’s they’ve grown to 10k a year. Trump has curtailed the refugee portion but can’t curtail the diversity portion without Congress.

    The WSJ has been following a Congolese refugee that “fled” to America. The coward left behind his wife and 10 children to suffer their fate but don’t cry for him he’s looking for a new wife in America.

    The first African immigrant I met in the US was in the early 1990s. He had a wife and small kid at home in Nigeria.

    Oops, did I say “immigrant”? I meant, visa overstayer who cashed in his return ticket and abandoned his wife and kid so he could live the high life on the lam in America!

    I knew some people at the nonprofit who had sponsored his visa and airfare, so—thinking of his abandoned family—I asked if they were going to do anything about it since they knew his approximate whereabouts.

    “Best of luck to him,” I was told.

    And yes, they were all smug af boomer liberals.

    That is the story of the coverage of both the civil rights movement and the sexual revolution.

    That is the way the American press has operated since, at least, Abraham Lincoln shut down newspapers that disagreed with him, his Republican Party, and their war to force states to be serfs under the Federal Government.

    They had an uplifting article on how New Zealanders were spontaneously handing in their guns.

    True…technically….37 guns (Out of 1.2 million)

    These people are shameless, and the media has been fully weaponized now. It’s a tool for them to use against us. The one positive is they seem unable to be subtle about it and people are catching on.

    Christine Blaissy Ford and Brent Kavanaugh and probably Montgomery County Circuit Court Judge Steven G. Salants kids went/go to private school in Montgomery county.

    Immigration has little to no effect on them. Maybe makes their yard work and child care cheaper if anything.

    Montgomery County Circuit Court Judge Steven G. Salant has no problems allowing sexual predators in Montgomery county public schools though. The middle class kids in Montgomery county get the broom stick figuratively and this case literally shoved up their ass.

    The TruCon wishful thinking of “immigration: good. As long as it’s legal” must surely be jettisoned.
    Western Countries all need 20-30 year Immigration Moratoriums until they sort themselves out.
    For starters, you can’t have immigration at all when the University-Media-Indoctrination Complex is actively weaponized against Assimilation, and engaged in incitement of minorities against the Native Host Population.

    As the Italy incident reveals, 3rd World immigrants are habituated and encouraged to make Western countries more like their homelands via accelerated immigration & multiculturalism. Basically, immigrants are becoming the Shock Troops for a Cultural Marxist takeover of the West.
