Understanding the Halle Synagogue & Kebab Shop Shootings

Stephan Balliet

1,557 words

It happens now with accelerating regularity: a white man who is alarmed at white ethnic displacement — “the great replacement” — goes to a place frequented by non-whites, often a place of worship, and starts shooting.

  • On Saturday, August 3, 2019, a 21-year-old white man, Patrick Crusius, walked into a Walmart in El Paso, Texas, and killed 20 people and injured 26 others.
  • On Saturday, April 27, a John Earnest, a 19-year-old white man walked into the Chabad synagogue in Poway, California near San Diego and shot two people, killing one. Two others were injured by shrapnel.
  • On Friday, March 15, 2019, a 28-year-old white man, Brenton Tarrant, reportedly entered the Al Noor Mosque and the Linwood Islamic Centre in Christchurch, New Zealand, killing 50 people and wounding around 40 others.
  • On Saturday, October 27, 2018, a 46-year-old white man, Robert Bowers, was arrested for entering the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, killing eleven people and wounding six others, including four police officers.
  • On Sunday, January 29, 2017, a 27-year-old white man, Alexandre Bissonnette, entered the Islamic Cultural Center in Quebec City, Canada, killed six Muslims gathered for prayer, and injured eight more.
  • On Wednesday, June 17, 2015, a 21-year-old white man, Dylann Storm Roof, entered the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina, killed nine blacks gathered for Bible study, and injured three more.
  • On Sunday, August 5, 2012, a 40-year-old white man, Wade Michael Page, a racist skinhead, opened fire at a Sikh temple near Milwaukee, killing six worshipers and wounding three others. He then shot and killed himself.

And now it has happened again:

  • On Wednesday, October 9th, 2019, a 27-year-old man, Stephan Balliet, brought a gun to a synagogue in Halle, Germany. Because he found the building locked, he reportedly killed a woman who was in the vicinity and another man in a nearby kebab shop. His victims were neither Jews nor “kebabs.” They were fellow Germans. He also wounded two other people.

Because these shootings all follow the same basic pattern, I have created a boilerplate article responding to them:

The basic argument is always the same. I just need to change a few of the particulars.

As a white person, I look down upon the criminals among us. I do not reflexively defend and glorify them. This was a terrible act: immoral, illegal, and politically damaging to white interests. I hope Balliet receives a fair trial and — if found guilty — a just punishment, but that seems unlikely given the racially charged, anti-white atmosphere in Germany today.

We obviously don’t know all the facts yet, but based on Balliet’s livestream, we can say several things with confidence.

First, Balliet was definitely concerned with white racial dispossession.

Second, this shooting spree could not have happened in a homogeneously white society. When different peoples are forced to live together in the same system, frictions are inevitable. These frictions give rise to misunderstandings, distrust, alienation, and long-simmering resentments, which flare up into hatred, violence, and social upheaval. Balliet’s actions are predictable consequences of multiculturalism. Sadly, we will only see more such violence until white nations regain their sanity and reverse multiculturalism.

Thus the New Right stands for the principle of racial divorce. It is time for whites and non-whites to go our separate ways and pursue our own destinies. We stand for the creation of separate racially homogeneous societies, through the peaceful and humane process of redrawing borders and shifting populations.

In the case of Germany, virtually all non-Europeans there are recent, post-World War II immigrants, and the best solution is for them to return to their homelands.

Third, we should resist dismissing Balliet with the all-too-easy claim that he was “crazy.” Yes, he did something evil and stupid, as well as downright embarrassing. But his underlying motive — fear of white race replacement — is not irrational or insane; it is a healthy reaction to objective facts. All white people have innate ethnocentric tendencies, wired deep in our brains. We love our own and we fear strangers. As diversity increases, all of us will bear increased psychic costs, even those who pursue wealth and status by selling out their own people in favor of foreigners.

Balliet and people like him may be nothing more than canaries in a coal mine: the first to sense the presence of a threat to the survival of us all. Balliet may have just been abnormally sensitive to the terrible psychic consequences of losing control of our society to aliens: stress, alienation, anger, hatred, rage, etc. This heightened sensitivity might also go along with a whole suite of other abnormal traits. But we dismiss people like Balliet at our own risk. For in the end, all of us will feel the same effects — unless we heed the warning signs and turn back the rising tide of color.

Finally, Balliet’s “solution” to his rage and alienation — killing innocent people — just makes the racial situation worse rather than better. We will surely learn a lot more about his ideas and affiliations in the coming months. But based on what we know now, we can say that his actions certainly resemble those of racially-motivated spree killers like Brenton Tarrant (whom he was obviously imitating), John Earnest, Robert Bowers, Dylann RoofAnders Behring BreivikWade Michael Page, and Frazier Glenn Miller, all of whom are products of what I call “Old Right” thinking.

By the “Old Right,” I mean classical Fascism and National Socialism and their contemporary imitators who believe that White Nationalism can be advanced through such means as one-party politics, terrorism, totalitarianism, imperialism, and genocide.

Today’s Old Right scene is rife with fantasies of race war, lone-wolf attacks on non-whites, and heroic last stands that end in a hail of police bullets. Intelligent and honorable people have emerged from this milieu. But there have been more than a few spree-killers as well.

This kind of violence is worse than a crime. It is a mistake. It does nothing to advance our cause and much to set us back.

Given that reason, science, and history are all on our side, and the greatest apparatus of coercion and brainwashing in human history is on the enemy’s side, doesn’t it make sense to attack the enemy at his weakest point rather than at his strongest? This is why the North American New Right pursues White Nationalism through intellectual and cultural means: we critique the hegemony of anti-white ideas and seek to establish a counter-hegemony of pro-white ideas.

Only a fool picks a battle he cannot win, and we cannot win with violence. Fortunately, we don’t have to. The Left lost the Cold War but won the peace through the establishment of intellectual and cultural hegemony. We can beat them the same way.

Furthermore, the only form of violence that even has a chance to be productive in halting multiculturalism and non-white immigration would target the people responsible for these policies, not random innocents.

Moreover, killing innocent people — even if they are racial invaders — has entirely predictable results. First, such violence creates sympathy for the victims. (Even I feel sympathy for them, yet I would deport them all tomorrow if I had the power.) Second, it plays into the establishment narrative of evil, crazy, intolerant whites whose freedom of speech and weapons must be taken away.

Beyond that, Balliet is in a special class of moronic white spree killers who end up killing only white people. Frasier Glenn Miller murdered three people in the vicinity of two Jewish buildings in Kansas, but he managed to kill only white people. Balliet’s victims were two Germans. With defenders like this, who needs enemies?

As I argue in my essay “Against White Nationalist Terrorism,” White Nationalists are making tremendous progress by means of propaganda. We are converting people to our worldview. The more people we convert, the sooner we regain control of our homelands. This is why our enemies are hell-bent on censoring and deplatforming us. They use every shooting spree like Tarrant’s or Balliet’s as a pretext to further clamp down on our freedom of speech, which restricts our ability to change minds and delays the implementation of sane, nationalist policies. And every day we are delayed is paid for in white lives.

Stephan Balliet killed two people in Halle, both of them fellow Germans. But far more white people will die if his deeds lead to further erosions of freedom.

I wish I could erect a wall between myself and the kind of unstable, undisciplined people who go on killing sprees, but you can’t change the world from a bunker. Thus, responsible white advocates need to adopt the next best course of action: (1) we must be alert to the signs of mental instability and inclinations toward violence and rigorously screen out such people, (2) we need to draw clear, unambiguous intellectual lines between New Right and Old Right approaches, and (3) if anyone makes concrete threats of committing such acts in our circles, we need to be the ones to call the police.

My goal is to persuade our people that White Nationalism is the solution to ethnic conflict, not the cause of it. Spree killers and the people who celebrate them are part of the problem, not part of the solution.

    Greg I agree overall.
    My question is what has happened to the MINDS of white young people, then again Glenn Miller, who testified AGAINST his “comrades” for the Feds, was an older fellow.

    As to “genocide” I don’t know of any WNs who, other than being provocative, e.g. Andrew Anglin, have ever supported that, also there is a serious disagreement, by learned men, that NS Germany ever intended or committed genocide.

    I think the approach that CC has always advanced is the most hopeful.

    Greg, your writings have always been what most any reasonable and unbiased person could heartily agree with.

    The only drawback to TRUTH and INFORMATION not winning the day for us is the deplatforming so that readers can only know what the Media Bosses want them to know.

    Despite how we may be portrayed in the Mainstream Media I have found our side to be most civilized and reasonable people.

    The proponents of White genocide, frankly, do not seem very reasonable to me, from Tim Wise, to the SPLC and the ADL.

    One hearkens back to what happened to the ethnic Russians after 1918,
    The fellow who wrote the GULAG ARCHIPELAGO said that the non-Russians slaughtered nearly seventy million ethnic Russians from 1918 to 1950s.

    While I sincerely condemn the attacks on innocent people as delineated by Greg that when one considers history WHO ARE THE REAL FIENDS?

    This reminds me of an article I recently read that mounted an impassioned philosophical argument against pedophilia….quoting actual philosophers and stuff!! Because pedophiles are so susceptible to dialectical Hegelian logic, right? It’s gonna work. It’s gotta work!
    Same thing here. We’re gonna have a civil and rational counter-hegemonic discourse with POC about a peaceful racial divorce? The author must not have much real-world experience with POC. The one thing that they absolutely must have in order to survive is access to White wealth and civilization. Separated from Whites, not one in twenty would be alive after three months. And they know it. And they hate both themselves and us for it. Attempt all the rational discourse you want. You may as well make faces at the Sphinx. As soon as they figure out we would like to stop subsidizing them, they will go apeshit. And POC sure as hell don’t give (and have never given) a single f-k about the doings of their own, especially jews, they revolutionaries that bombed Brits in encyclopedias and books of great importance.

    Moreover, not a single revolution in history, in the magnitude you envision (massive racial separation and the gain (or loss) of a dominant status in the society as a group) has happened peacefully. Name just one, I’m waiting. And while you try to figure out some vague example, I’ll name Israel and almost every European nation-state post WWI that has achieved their goals with it.

    All you propose is pearl clutching and pointless discourse that has failed in USA for almost a hundred years now, HUNDRED, and you keep on beating around the same bush.

        “Ultimately the only people we have to convince are other white people. Once enough whites get behind it, non-whites just don’t matter.”

        Allow me to confirm the truth of this statement from my own personal experience.

        When I was a young man, I emigrated from Britain to Australia. After a short time the obvious occurred to me that I, an Englishman living and working in Australia, was as a matter of fact absolutely dependent on the Australians for everything: my employment, my wages, the roof over my head, the food on the table, etc.

        Now believe me every foreigner, every immigrant, every “refugee” living in the West knows exactly as I knew in Australia, that he is absolutely dependent on the host community. Q.E.D.

      I disagree. They do not know it. And even if they would, they would not care. I think you might be projecting too much whiteness onto non-whites.

      This is something I had a hard time accepting, but I am now convinced that non-whites do not think like whites. They operate in an entirely different world. You can see some of that in today’s political scene. But only superficial as the dem’s are still dominated by whites.

      Look at Africa: they happily killed white farmers while we knew this would create missery for themselves. They however did not know, and did not care.

      Most of the world is not capable of delayed gratification. And seems unable to think in abstract terms.

    I can’t imagine what a nightmare it must be to be a young German man in the land still called Germany. I’m sure people like him could have greatly benefited from community…something harder and harder to find.

    I find myself sympathetic to his plight but also contemptible of his actions. He will not target people responsible for the problem because it is not a crime planned out, it is a man lost to darkness. In times past someone would reach in and pull him out… but we’re simply a disconnected diaspora at this point. All around him were specters and images of something that was.

    Truly I am sympathetic with the shooter and the victims but then it is an expected hazard given the occupation of Germany. It will continue to happen while the many others unheard of simply point the gun at themselves and bid farewell to the world we have now in hopes of finding something warm, even if it is eternal darkness. Only a ghost can be warm there.

    There’s really nothing we can do to stop this, we have no power after all. Perhaps each time this happens and the screws turn tighter on white people something will give. I certainly don’t look forward to a future of massive antidepressants similar to Scandinavia though… and after seeing reactions to that Joker movie I think that might be the case.

        I have a bit of sympathy(not for the act but for the guy) but one thing is clear everyone who isnt in line has to brace himself. Its a welcome excuse for those in power. If they do it like in Austria with Sellner and the Identitarians this could be devastating cause I dont think in Germany there is the money and backing to surive that.

        Call it a crisis of identity or internal crisis I’m projecting on him then. Being of German ancestry I find myself becoming so unwilling to identify with it. The more I see of Germany and Scandinavia the more I feel ashamed and want nothing to do with them. What kind of spineless soulless people have they become? Eternal cucks? Being American however I am sure one need only to search for a second to levy the same insults at us.

        It’s just that the more and more propaganda I consume the more it affects me even with me knowing that is its purpose. What is to save in Germany and Scandinavia if they are so willing to destroy themselves? Even the most German and Scandinavian populated areas in the US (Minnesota/Midwest etc), the real towhead states, are almost identical in their cowardice and fervor in self-destruction.

        Part of me thinks a lot of why these particular Europeans have become such spiritless “cuckolds” is because of the great effectiveness of things like Feminism. What makes a young man more willing to fight than a woman to fight for? Your “eternal companions” are essentially inviting your destruction, often in the most grotesque way. What will to fight is left after that? With every towhead so uninspiring, meek, and empty who cares anymore.

        Then every so often you’ll run into the little blonde boy or young man who isn’t so into the progressive social pipeline. He’s quite aware of what is happening and I’m sure was “redpilled” by fashy memes or something and is quite against the Great Replacement. When that happens I’m met with inner turmoil and crisis of conscience once again. But I am also met with inspiration and purpose. This blonde boy is worth thousands of other self-loathing towheads or Progressives Whites. Even if there are only a handful of people left to care about it is still worth caring.

          In the case of Germany, the US has much to answer for in making them this way. What other result could the “Denazification” propaganda have possibly had? It was deliberately designed to instill shame and erode any semblance of nationalism. Add in that many of the men who were installed as leaders in both West and East Germany had been political prisoners in the Third Reich. The Allies wanted to build a Germany that would not pose a threat at any point in the foreseeable future, and they succeeded in that effort.

          I know considerably less of Sweden’s history, so I feel less comfortable weighing in on their situation. But I will still say that I think even the Swedes are in better shape than the US.

    “In the case of Germany, virtually all non-Europeans there are recent, post-World War II immigrants, and the best solution is for them to return to their homelands.”

    Yes, but I’m afraid that this is easier said than done. Most of these immigrants are probably not interested in returning to their true homelands, since the standard of living is much lower there.

    In many cases the descendants of the early post-war immigrants are not even citizens in their ancestral countries, and would therefore not be allowed to return permanently. Some of them can’t even speak the languages of these countries.

    And for states like Turkey a large diaspora is way to exert influence over Europe, so they will probably not be of much help with the repatriation.

          “Obviously what is given can be taken away.”

          Its quite obvious that this will not be well received and someone has to enforce it. I dont see the institution or the people that are capable of doing that. Look at the Viedeo of the Halle guy, that is the state we are in. The establishment is making sure there is no capabilitiy of doing such a thing from the individual level to institutional level. You would have to organise yourself and then the inability of the individual to enact force kicks in. And of course I cant advocate stripping people of german passports for legal reasons 🙂

            As to the people, I kind of agree. Though there are probably more than you would expect. But I have lived in Germany and was stunned by the meekness of the people there. The only exception seems to be the people from the former east germany. They were ok.

            Institutions are imo not a problem. Theyw ill do whatever the politic orders them to do. I could even imagine them hiring ‘enforcers’ fro other countries…

            This may actually be athing that can work in our advantage: the pople will vote right but they will not behave right. However when enough people vote right the institutions will follow, and that may be germany’s only hope.

        How can “they” give something away which is yours to give?

        I.e. citizenship is not something that can be given away by a goverment. It must be given by the people by extending the cooperation they give to their fellow countrymen to the ‘new citizens’.

        Sure, the government can hand out passports and give the immigrants the right to vote, to receive financial benefits etc, but all that does is to undermine their own position as the accepted representatives of the existing population.

        It is simply impossible to force somebody to like somebody else. To force people to trust other people etc. Whether they have a passport or not.

      I don’t know about the rest of the West but here in Canada the standard of living is in slow decline, taxes are up, congestion is up even more and the winters are cold. But c’mon in folks as we are all going to be living like it was in the 50’s – the government said so.

        ”I don’t know about the rest of the West but here in Canada the standard of living is in slow decline, taxes are up, congestion is up even more and the winters are cold.”

        We have a similar situation here in Sweden, but our standard of living is still much higher than in Somalia, Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan, which many of our immigrants come from.
        So very few of them will return voluntarily.

        What makes me somewhat optimistic is that there is a growing awareness of the immigrant-related problems among Swedes. When people start to understand how mass-immigration affects their everyday life and the future of their children, they are less inclined to vote for the parties which are responsible for it.

        Repatriation is still a very controversial issue, but more and more people realize that it is the only solution. The question is how it can be achieved.

      ‘..not interested in returning to their true homelands..’

      That’s probably true as things stand today, but over time conditions could be changed to favour those who do return.

      A first step would be ending chain immigration to prevent family reunion in Western nations. A related step might be to provide aid to those wishing to reunite with family in their true homelands. As Greg has said, the departure of recently arrived migrants might take years or decades, but that’s fine. We lost our ethnic homogeneity over 50 years or so – it might take us that long to regain it.

      Great works take time.

      I don’t think we have a ‘snowflake’s chance in hell’ of removing any of our Mexican and Central American invaders from our country’s midst — our border is still nearly 90% open — and secondly, they have only come here for the money (in the ‘poor me’ guise of ‘a better life’), which the Socialists love to tout in their defense. The problem is, they will create the same chaotic platform for poverty here that they left behind. I have no idea how to ‘deport’ them, especially when we give preferential treatment to Central Americans over Mexicans, so none of them — wisely — have any ‘papers’ to prove where they are, or are not, from. I think we have to form ourselves into gated enclaves until we can gather enough money to buy back huge tracts of land for our existence, though that will take years and many lawyers. What is Counter-Currents’ Foundation about? Creating foundations and trusts is how most rich white people gather land unto themselves. Just throwing out a few random thoughts here.

    Excellent article. WN 1.0 cannot work. Even if this latest lone wolf attacker killed a high value anti-Europeans target such as Angela Merkel , it would only help the cause of the advocates of the great replacement. To save our peoples of Europe and the diaspora in North America and elsewhere, we must win the meta political war and change the culture to being pro European and discard old grievances e.g. French vs the Germans, Irish Vs English etc. If violence is indeed needed, then it will be collective actions of large numbers of our peoples winning back our rights to self determination and our own homelands

    Jonathan Bowden said in a speech that it took 400 years for the Irish to have a balanced and judicial view of Cromwell. It will take us a comparable amount of time to regain favor–centuries, that is; I’d wager at least two. All we can really do is keep the flame of these ideas alive. Violent action taken against civilians is morally repugnant and only radicalizes people toward the other side.

    Unfortunately, reason and science appear to be marginal strengths. When it comes to public opinion, feelings outperform facts every time. Charisma and re-framing are ultimately more impactful than presenting well-reasoned opinion. This is why it is a mistake to join the chorus of condemnation; rather, we should take a page from our opponents’ book and excuse our extremists, focusing entirely on the oppression which causes their disenfranchisement and justified indignation.

    To your credit, you do draw attention to the preconditions of ill-advised violence here, but then you undercut with these “Thanks, A-hole” captioned images. Perhaps you’d disagree, but I don’t think we score many points with the public by virtue-signalling about how reprehensible we find such acts (even if sincere). I believe it more effective to say “It’s tragic, but what did you expect? Stop destroying our people!” as opposed to “This is disgraceful and we disavow it entirely, smh at all the losers in our movment… But our position is still correct, you know.”

    Now I realize that you are an intellectual providing nuanced opinion, not just some anonymous memer (which also puts you under legal scrutiny). So please don’t misconstrue my comment as hyper-critical; I just wanted to share my opinion on the general strategy I think we should adopt.

      There is no excuse for stupid and counter-productive behavior. People like this need to be discouraged, and the quickest way to discourage them is to heap scorn upon them. If the bloody-minded fools who lionized Tarrant instead joined a chorus of universal mockery and condemnation, do you think that Balliet, Crusius, and Earnest would have been likely to copy him? At the very least, it would have lowered the chances.

    Our enemies are also engaged in running false flag/hoaxes and I consider the list you made above too be pretty much ALL ‘hoaxes’. Any attempt by white nations to re-assert themselves is made to look bad by association with these ‘shooters’. My contention is there are no shooters for the most part these are constructed events for propaganda purposes. And the fact you seem to implicitly believe the ‘story’ shows it is working only too well

    I simply think it needs to be made clear that lone acts of violence never accomplish anything. Certainly revolutions rarely materialize without organized violence, but organized it most certainly has to be in order for it to accomplish anything. Unfortunately, we live under conditions that amount to a giant stale-mate of inaction, and without a catalyst such as systematic economic collapse, nothing will ever change that.

      Lone acts of violence, such as those of Bowers and Earnest, accomplish nothing? Okay, there never used to be anti-Semitism in the United States. The Jews called the USA their “exceptional nation” because anti-Semitism was almost non-existant. Suddenly it has appeared! Why? The Jews consist of two types: the assimilated and the nationalist. In the USA the assimilated Jews are powerful in the overall Jewish community. Now then, most likely the assimilated Jews are blaming the nationalist Jews for the sudden development of anti-Semitism in the USA. Is this conflict within the Jewish community not in White interest?

    Let’s try to put the Halle shooting into a wider context. First off, can anyone deny that, from the point of view of the German multicultural establishment, the Halle incident couldn’t have come at a more opportune moment? Look at what has transpired in Germany recently, all within the time span of just a few short months:

    – The somewhat right-wing “Alternative fur Deutschland” (AfD) gaining considerably in several state elections, with more of that expected in the near future. These gains have happened despite a gigantic and lavishly funded campaign of demonization and obstruction directed against the party including persistent and wide-ranging violence committed by state-sponsored antifa. They have also happened despite of deep divisions within the party, where a pro-establishment wing based mainly in the West tries to steer it away from its programmatic stance, which is actually just a rehash of what the Christian Democrats stood for until unification, s stance that already unacceptable in polite company in today’s Merkelized Germany. The establishment tries to exploit the persistence of the AfD’s success by creating an ever more polarizing dialectic. But it must still be unnerving for them that the trajectory of the AfD’s electoral success is clearly upward.
    – The AfD is just an outwardly visible tip of the ice berg of a thriving and diverse right-wing opposition in Germany, which is mainly centered in the East. This opposition consists of all kinds of groups and initiatives from the moderate to the radical, including intellectual opposition like what can be read on the Website. Mind you that Germany still has an uncontested right-wing street presence by way of the ongoing Pegida demonstrations in Dresden, something that cannot be said about almost any other place in the Western world. It’s a pity that these developments are not more recognized in the English-speaking world. Again, it must be unnerving for the establishment that this opposition refuses to go away despite everything that’s being thrown against it.
    – The German economy, in particular the auto industry, going into recession. During its initial phase, the Merkel government greatly profited from anti-worker legislation introduced under her predecessor Schroeder. Germany went into a competition of low wages against its European neighbors, won it, and that together with high productivity led to economic growth, which financed Merkel’s policies. Then came the financial crisis, which the government papered over just like everybody else by money printing. The money printing all over the world created demand, which gave Germany’s export-oriented economy a new lease of life, and political experiments could go on. This model is now unraveling with economic growth all over the world abating and money printing becoming less and less effective in view of the imbalances and mountains of debt it created.
    – The Merkel government caving in to the Greta craziness. In her usual opportunistic fashion, Merkel saw over a “climate package” being passed, the intention being to placate the demonstrators. That did not happen as the demonstrations are still going on. They are actually becoming increasingly radical with street blockades in the central parts of Berlin. At the same time, millions of working people are realizing that increased fuel taxes are going to add to their costs of living. These effects are so obvious, even the main stream media cannot deny them.
    – Relative costs of living in Germany are already high in Germany. Taxation is high to finance a gigantic welfare state that still leaves millions in poor condition, wages are low compared to productivity, the money printing has created a real-estate bubble, immigration has further exacerbated the situation on the housing market, energy prices are high.
    – The policies that have led to high energy prices, a flagship project of successive Merkel cabinets, are also unraveling, and again the mainstream media cannot deny it. There is hardly any net increase in the number of wind turbines as their life spans so short that older ones now being phased out almost compensate for new ones being installed. It has also become generally accepted that wind turbines kill large numbers of birds and insects, a fact that is used effectively by local initiatives in fighting against new wind turbine installations. To top it all off, there is now mounting evidence for wind turbines leading to droughts in their wake paths, a phenomenon that Germany experienced in severe manners in 2018.
    – A renewed phase of immigration like the one in 2015 may be just around the corner. Turkey is invading Syria and post-Salvini Italy has performed a 180-degree turn in its policies towards refugee ships approaching its harbors. German politicians can do nothing about it. Even Merkel’s minister of the interior and pseudo-hardliner Seehofer, a Christian Democrat from Bavaria (where they are called the Christian socialists), has overtly jumped on the immigrant-friendly bandwagon by declaring his support for refugee quotas.
    – Brexit may still occur, although it is somewhat doubtful that it will. If it occurs, the EU will loose its major cash cow besides Germany. That will put further strains on Germany’s finances, all the more so since Brexit will render the Southern voting block in the EU so dominant that there is going to be even more re-distribution from the North to the South.
    – The murder of a local Christian Democrat politician in the Hessian town of Kassel entered the news cycle and then left it despite a great deal of media hysteria about it. The politician had made a name for himself by vocally supporting the government immigration policies. A purportedly right-wing guy was arrested for the murder, confessed to it but has since withdrawn his confession.
    – Germany has a net outflow off highly educated people numbering in the tens of thousands every year, the infrastructure is crumbling, new infrastructure projects like the new airport in Berlin are not coming to fruition, the armed forces are a joke with the draft having been abolished and most of their major equipment being in-operational, Germany is falling behind in major international indicators like the level of investment into education, the list goes on and on.

    In short, Merkel’s ascendancy to the chancellorship marked a phase shift to the left in Germany, although this shift had been long in the making at least since the 60’s. After more than ten years of unabashed leftism, Germany is a polarized, impoverished, crumbling mess and this mess cannot be denied by the mainstream media. Opposition is growing even within the Christian Democrats, at least, where there are calls for letting the party membership elect a candidate to run for chancellor. That would surely oust Merkel’s designated successor, an obscure female politician carrying a name nobody can pronounce or even remember how to write. (All the overtly left-wing parties in Germany, the Greens, the Social Democrats etc., are totally hopeless and will never generate any opposition.)

    Just a few days before the Halle incident, there was another incident, now conveniently almost forgotten, where a Syrian refugee touted by witnesses to be shouting “Allah is Greater” drove a lorry into a row of cars, injuring several occupants. Life has already very visibly changed in Germany with the approaches to Christmas markets and other public gatherings regularly protected by rows of concrete blocks. These blocks, lovingly called “Merkel blocks” or “Merkelpoller” in German, have appeared everywhere in aftermath of a number of people, including children, crushed to death or severely injured in the lorry attack on a Christmas market in Berlin in 2016. Another gruesome attack just this summer saw an immigrant throwing a mother and her eight year son under an oncoming train in broad daylight at the main railway station in Frankfurt. The mother survived, the child died. There was a great deal of reporting about this attack in Germany, and it was not the only one of its kind, with at least two youths having been killed in the same manner elsewhere not long before. There was a hope that the German state at the very least had brought the security situation somewhat under control in the aftermath of the crisis in 2015 and the terrorist attack in 2016. These hopes have been dashed by what has happened since summer, everybody could see that nothing was under control in Germany and the news reporting was full of it all.

    And now, like at the flick of a switch, it’s all forgotten. German media are all fretting about the Halle incident. In particular, the AfD is being held responsible for it. You can be sure that public hysteria is not going to abate quickly and that there will be more measures in the “fight against the right”, the “Kampf gegen Rechts” as it’s called, which has already led to severe curtailments to civil rights across the board. The fight against the right is nothing but the fight against everything that does not conform to multicultural leftism.

    Johnson has already noted other coincidences. Places of worship being attacked, obscure loners doing the attacking, random people, not even worshippers being shot, livestreams put op on the Internet, crude ideological tenets being sputtered, ever more civil rights being curtailed in the aftermath.

    There are just too many of these coincidences. We have to entertain the possibility that these attacks are somehow orchestrated, even if they may not be false-flags attacks in the most narrow meaning of the word. We have to think about whether it might be possible to set loose attackers at opportune moments even without the attackers themselves realizing what’s going on. What possibilities might exist to control the minds of certain vulnerable people? We are not talking about conspiracy theories and cheap science fiction. It can be assumed that certain right-wing groups are heavily infiltrated by the security services. Could it be the case that would-be attackers are sought out and then surrounded by influencers? Could it be that would-be attackers have their electronic communications hacked to present them with an alternate view if reality? This is all wild speculation but what is the probability that all these attacks go down in the same fashion, leading to the same results? Seeking out psychologically unstable, less than bright, right-wing loners would certainly make sense just like letting them attack random religious worshippers but never, ever any of the elites.

    Germany has actually seen something of a this kind with the so-called NSU murders. The NSU or “Nationalsozialistischer Untergrund” (nationally socialist underground) was a group held responsible for a string of murders of Turks and one police woman roughly since 1999. It all went bust when two of their members purportedly killed themselves by setting alight a van they were sitting in in 2011. The NSU and everything around it was another major news item in Germany all through the 2010’s. Lo and behold, the security services have their fingerprints all over it, in the most egregious ways. It’s easy to look up on the Internet, everybody is invited to do so. Files were destroyed, witnesses died, one of them on his way to testifying before court (!), the whole gamut. Just one tidbit for everybody to consider is this: Of the supposedly killed Turks, several were targeted at fast-food joints, and all of these were actually Kurds. How could the NSU have known or even cared about that they were killing Turks of Kurdish descent?

    The situation is so serious, we have to make room in our minds for what seems to be exceedingly improbable at first glance.

      I think the NSU is clearly a deep-state hoax. Not a false flag. But a hoax stitching together real crimes probably committed by other Turks with fake testimony.

      That does not imply that the appalling stupidity in Halle was a false flag.

      Sadly, there are all too many bloody-minded morons in our movement. It is perfectly believable Balliet is one more of them.

      The point about timing makes no sense. The Left is masterful at exploiting such events. It does not have to manufacture them. I am pretty much sure that the exact same people would milk this crime for political gain in the exact same way if it were to have happened one month before or one month hence.

      Talk of “coincidence” is misplaced here. It is not a coincidence that so many of these shooters are targeting places of worship. It is part of the plan. Not the “deep state” plan, but the plans of one bloody-minded fool copying another bloody-minded fool.

        Surely, you have watched the video that was allegedly made by the Christchurch shooter? What would be your take on what can be seen in this video? Socks don’t lie.

    Even the title of ths article is wrong. There was no synagogue shooting.

    This idiot managed to shoot two of his fellow Germans, that is all. One of the two, a young construction painter, who one would assume would otherwise have made a family. The other, an innocent disabled fan of bad pop music.

    Tarrant, OTHO, I know that violence is counter-productive, but as I am sure many others have suffered at the hands (or waved knives) of Moslem invaders.

    Many lives have been thus disrupted or destroyed.

    Tarrant saved New Zealand from much future crime. His action was also stylish, the inscriptions on weapons worth a thought..

    I have been in Christchurch, New Zealand, years ago. A very beautiful place.

    No mosques, no moslem sub-humans.
