HitlerJugend, all over again...

The Dutch Government is on track for creating the HitlerJugend all over again, by introducing a new program for youth care, called Electronisch Kind Dossier (EKD), or Electronic Child Dossier, starting from birth. Looking at the plan, a better name would be Einheits Kinder Dienst, or Unified Child Service, as the project aims to monitor and signal all medical and other development of children. Investigators will judge how much of a burdon kids are for parents, and whether or not parents are deemed capable of raising their kids.

This means that goverment officials will get unlimited access to all medical details of all children between 0 and 19 years of age, no more medical privacy. If you happen not to be deemed capable of raising your kids, you will be forced to accept 'help' from youth care 'professionals', which get a golden opportunity for indoctrination from birth, instead of having to wait until children start visiting school. And as it's government who will decide whether or not you're capable, dissidents and members of the Freedom Of Speech and Individual Rights movements will have to fear that their children will be taken away from them, as they will never be raised to be good and obedient socialists. It's a collectivists wet dream, HitlerJugend all over again (Einheit der Jugend in der HitlerJugend means Unity of youth in the HitlerYouth). Boys from Brasil rings a bell as well.

Let's look at what the project's intentions are:

Monitoring and Signaling
This item I covered briefly above

Assess the needs for support
Here we're getting on dangerous grounds already. Given the not-so-good reputation of youth care in NL, who's competent to be the judge of that? We've had numerous cases in the recent past where kids were killed or damaged for life by incompetent parents, that had been guided by youth care for months or even years. So why should we trust their judgement? They're good at criticism of others, but once they're exposed they refuse all responsibility. So who will decide when and what support wil be needed? Not the parents, apparently.

Screening and vaccination
Early detection and prevention of specific medical abberations and the offering of vaccination. This is more or less standard practice already; it's not clear whether vaccination will become mandatory.

Provide information, advice, training and guidance
Both parents and youngsters will be able to obtain guidance and advice, individually or in groups. But it looks like the 'guidance' will be offered, not sought, on the basis of the monitoring's findings. So people that feel they do not need guidance may well be forced into it, because they will be deemed unfit to judge.

Affect external factors that influence health
Environmental factors that may influence a child's health will be evaluated and acted upon. So we may expect even more lunacy on fine dust, power lines, GSM antennae, traffic exhaust fumes, until the entire economy grinds to a halt. And then some.

We may expect that norms will be lowered even further, still more limiting laws will be instilled, until it is virtually impossible to obey them. Already in 1957, Ayn Rand wrote in Atlas Shrugged:
"Did you really think we want those laws observed?" said Dr. Ferris. "We want them to be broken. You'd better get it straight that it's not a bunch of boy scouts you're up against... We're after power and we mean it... There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What's there in that for anyone? But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced or objectively interpreted – and you create a nation of law-breakers – and then you cash in on guilt. Now that's the system, Mr. Reardon, that's the game, and once you understand it, you'll be much easier to deal with."

It's a totalitarian statist's wet dream: a full electronic file on every citizen, from the cradle to the grave. Combined with the intended Pay-per-Drive system, which allows for monitoring al that citizens movements whether by car or train, it will provide for perfect scapegoats for crimes whose real perpetrators should not be caught. Total control, you can't even fart without the state knowing all about it. Knowledge is power. But I'm sidetracking here.

This extensive medical file will later on become part of the Electronic patient file, which covers all medical details of an adult. It's a great idea: all information an a person, centrally stored, countrywide available at tyhe push of a button. It cannot get lost, it can be searched, and correlations can be made that will help improve the quality of (youth) health care dramatically. Sounds good, but we know from experience that information like this can, and thus will, be used for purposes that are now claimed not to be the intention. Where it will lead is already visible in the UK: fingerprints, schoolresults, diets and even whether or not parents are a proper rollmodel will be to the file, starting from 2010. And there it is: rollmodel. The creation of unified children, obedient slaves to their government, working for the needs of others without ever complaining. HitlerJugend. It won't succeed, but it'll make life hell for those who are subjected to it.

Privacy is void, autonomy is shot, freedom is out of the window. The information will be readily available for future politicians with even less moral ideas and slavery will be the net result. And it will cost a fortune and probably never work. A fortune as government historically has no control over budgets, initial estimate is 72 million euro, but a 150 million has already been rumored. Never work as historically governments are notorious for failed projects, certainly on this sort of scale. But it'll cost the taxpayer a lot of money, money that could have been used to spend time with the family and drive the economy.

Site unblocked

Today, DutchConcerns has been unblocked again after having been blocked for some time by Blogger on allegations that it might be a spamblog. This is the mail I received today:


Your blog has been reviewed, verified, and cleared for regular use so that it will no longer appear as potential spam. If you sign out of Blogger and sign back in again, you should be able to post as normal. Thanks for your patience, and we apologize for any inconvenience this has caused.

The Blogger Team

Over at Gates of Vienna, Anon suggested my blocking may have been related to my linking to Foehammer's Anvil:

my suspicion is that the person who previously tangled with Foehammer's Anvil is now picking off people who frequent Foehammer's site. R. Hartman and Lady Predator are two of Foehammer's readers who have blogs with Blogger. Lady Predator's blog was recently blocked, too. According to her, someone with a account visited her blog 10 to 20 times a day for a few days, each time for only a few seconds (just enough time to press the "FLAG BLOG" switch)

Let's just hope the free speech blogs will not continue to be terrorized this way, should this suspicion be on the money. If I remember correctly, GoV also got blocked after Baron Bodissey reported on Foehammer's Digg ban...

More Dhimmytude...

The Dutch newspaper published more dhimmytude today, in response to the commotion caused by Minister Ellen Vogelaar's interview in Trouw, which got some attention earlier on this blog. The opening lines tell a story in themselves:

"In the US, Muslims are Americans, just like the rest. Minister Vogelaar's attempt to reduce the fear for Islam recently caused angry reactions. Why is it that Muslim immigration in the US progresses so much smoother?"

The article continues by relating to a Muslim basketball event in Sterling, VA, held in the local mosque. For an hour, players yell instructions at each other in both English and Arabic. There's a lot of physical contact, all part of the game. Sajjad Ahmad, a 27 year old financial advisor who started the initiative, explains that "it's a way of showing young Muslims how to integrate in American society without giving up Islam".

According to the article, Muslims in America are much more integrated than in Europe. Americans feel that Europe is handling the immigrationproblem unwisely. Daniel Benjamin (former aide to Pres. Clinton) stated that the EU keeps immigrants too much outside of society. Well, I've got news for him: immigrants keep themselves out of society. They refuse to integrate. They chase people from their old neighbourhoods and create no-go areas for the natives. And all the while government pampers them with free money, housing and every right to make their backward sharia demands. According to Benjamin it's our fault that Muslim youth don't finish their schools. Well, he could have a point there: if you shower them with free taxpayer's money, why would they ever want to go work for a living? But I'm sure that's not what he meant.

"Americans take in new immigrant groups much easier. The fact that after 9/11 there were no successful terrorist attacks in the US, while Europe suffered losses in Madrid, London and Amsterdam (Theo van Gogh) proves this" (emphasis added). Ehh.., how exactly does that prove anything?

"America has a big heart towards other religions. Not one nation-wide paper published the Danish Cartoons, as it was felt that Muslim feelings would be hurt." How's that for dhimmytude? According to the article, a survey by Minnesota U. last year confirmed that distrust towards Muslims has increased since 9/11. But it also states that "when you ask an American whether they would have their child marry an atheist rather than a Muslim, the vast majority of the respondents will choose the Muslim". I rather doubt that, unless the survey was held among the American Muslims from the second paragraph of this post.

The article rampages on, also mentioning Ayaan Hirsi Ali. According to ex CIA analyst Marc Sagerman, she has her facts wrong. He says she cannot prove her statement that Islam itself feeds terrorism. Typical dhimmytude: a Western bureaucrat claims to be more informed than a woman, who was victim of Islam herself, fought herself free, analyzed Islam thoroughly and has a strong and valid view on the subject. Apart from that, Sagerman is simply proven wrong by 14 centuries of Islamic savagery.

Apart from anything else, a Pew Research Center Study showed that Muslims in America are only about 1% of total poulation, while this is over 5% in The Netherlands. And they have a much harder time entering America than the Netherlands: they have to cross an ocean and have an education, among other things. They are excluded from public welfare (for the first 5 years if I'm correct), while in Europe they just have to cross open borders and get welfare, housing and medical attention starting from day one.

"Only 5% of American Muslims support Al Qaeda; in Europe this percentage is much higher" (emphasis added), according to Luis Lugo, a Pew director. I think it's fair to say we get more of the backward inbreds, compared to America, and over 5 times as many, relatively speaking.

This article, intended to support Vogelaar's statements, clearly shows the leftist guilt cult that has taken over Europe and The Netherlands. It's our fault Muslims won't behave. We don't treat them well enough. Well, most Muslim crimes are tolerated, as they are induced by their religion, and critics will get labeled fascist, racist, Islamofobic, xenofobic and a number of other terms I'd never heard of about two years ago. But the lemmings are clearly heading for the cliffs.

By the way: the same article mentions a visit to Barak Obama's Islamic haidresser. Barak, of Islamic descent, frequents an Islamic hairdresser. Whether this has any bearings on his intentions after he gets elected (hope not) cannot be said, but I'd be careful. After all, given the article's info, only 1% of American hairdressers should be Islamic. Maybe it's 'just' political correctness, maybe not...

Gates of Vienna is back!

Blogger has unblocked GoV again. So it probably was an automated glitch. Let's at least hope so and think positive about it.

Gates of Vienna blocked by Blogger

Here's a message GoV's Baron Bodissey left in the comments to his latest post on GoV:

I just attempted to post at Gates of Vienna, and was told by an automatic message that our blog is suspected of being a spam blog, and has been blocked by Blogger.

The full text of the message:

“This blog has been locked by Blogger's spam-prevention robots. You will not be able to publish your posts, but you will be able to save them as drafts.”

And here’s what Blogger says about what we are suspected of:

“What Are Spam Blogs?

“As with many powerful tools, blogging services can be both used and abused. The ease of creating and updating webpages with Blogger has made it particularly prone to a form of behavior known as link spamming. Blogs engaged in this behavior are called spam blogs, and can be recognized by their irrelevant, repetitive, or nonsensical text, along with a large number of links, usually all pointing to a single site.”

I followed Blogger’s instructions, typed in the visible letters to prove that I was not a bot, and am now awaiting a response from the Powers That Be.

In the meantime, I can’t even post a notice at Gates of Vienna bout what is going on.

If you don’t think Gates of Vienna is a spam blog (and assuming that your blog has not also been blocked by Blogger), please post a notice about what has happened. If you know of a way to contact Blogger or Google, please let them know that Gates of Vienna is *not* a spam blog, regardless of how politically incorrect it is.


Thank you.

GoV is not a spam blog, but its messages may be not exactly the kind that the Special Envoy on Racism and Xenophobia of the Useless Nations might want to read. Let's hope that it's a genuine mistake, caused by all trackbacks to and from GoV, and that there's not a more sinister reason. Given earlier information, obtained from (a.o.) FoeHammer's Anvil, I'm not too sure.

The bad news from Holland

Unbelievable as it may seem, the Dutch 'Minister voor Wonen, Wijken en Integratie' (Residence, Neighbourhoods and Integration (I'm not making this up)), Ella Vogelaar, today has declared in an interview (in Dutch newspaper Trouw) that The Netherlands will be Islamic at some point in the future. She feels that The Netherlands should adapt to Islam, and subsidise Islamic institutions. What will emerge, according to her, is a "Christian-Jewish-Islamic culture". As if Christianity and Judaism aren't 100% opposite to Islam's teachings. The stupidity of the statement is mind boggling.

Never mind separation of state and church, Vogelaar is willing, even advocating, to spend extorted taxpayer's money on converting a western nation to Sharia oppression. According to Vogelaar, "terrorism and religious violence are not unique to Islam; this also occurs with other religions. We have to accept this as part of our society and of every religion". Vogelaar wants to "make Muslims feel at home". Well, if they come to The Netherlands voluntarily, which they do, and they don't like it here, which apparently they don't, nobody's stopping them to go back home. I fail to see why I should have to pay in order to make another person happy, and that does not only apply to Muslims.

Everyone has a right to life, freedom and the pursuit of happiness. They do not have a right to happiness, as it would make me their slave, having to make them happy no matter their demands. Well, suit yourself. If you can adapt to the Dutch way of life, become western, and make your own future, through your own achievements, you are welcome. If you feel you have to impose a totalitarian belief, live from my money, and complain we don't adapt to your backward culture, please go home and stay there. Don't invade my freedom.

Only recently, a Muslim woman was murdered on the Alkmaar railway station by her Turkish ex-husband. She'd left him because he used to beat her up. Well, that was his right, wasn't it? She was his property, right? He killed himself after the fact, and it turned out his family had put him up to it: honor killing. Man and husband were cousin and niece. Not at all uncommon. But it's widely known what inbreading will do to both physical and spiritual health: lots of genetic defects and low intelligence, with all sorts of psychological disorders. Those are the Muslims we're importing, this is the Islam Vogelaar wants to become part of the Dutch culture.

Unfortunately, Vogelaar is just one of many traitors to the western culture, member of the PvdA political party (Partij van de Arbeid, Labour Party). She is totally incompetent. Ignorance never was an excuse for incompetence, and it's certainly not becoming one now. She actually thought that Mohammed Bouyeri, Theo van Gogh's killer, was some sort of social worker who's ideas she found agreeable. Is it surprising that PvdA has been nicknamed many names: Partij van de Allochtonen, Partij van de Allahs, Portemonnee van de Ander, Partij van de Achterlijkheid (Immigrant Party, Allah Party, Other People's Wallet, Retard's Party) and then some more?

The PVV (Freedom Party), the only party in The Netherlands that hasn't succumbed to dhimmytude, has asked questions on the issue to Dutch Parliament. The PVV wants these statements withdrawn, or else Vogelaar should resign. While PVV is the most (classical) liberal party we have in The Netherlands, and the only one with a critical attitude, I feel this is not good enough. Even if the statements were to be withdrawn, it won't change their meaning. Vogelaar said it, and she meant it. If she retracts, just to stay in office, it won't mean a thing. This woman is evil, and should be forced out of any official function immediately. In fact, she should be tried for high treason, but probably get equitted for being utterly clueless.

The only thing we may be thankful to Vogelaar for later on is that her incredible stupidity may have awoken some Dutch minds that up till now were too blind to see where our government is leading us. Whether it's too late or not, only time will tell.

Malaysia increases pressure on non-Muslims

According to AsiaNews Northern Malaysia has announced heavier punishment for Muslim apostates. A Muslim who converts away from Islam wil be punished with 5 years imprisonment and a 3,000 dollar fine. In contrast, when a Malayan Muslim marries a non-Muslim who then converts to Islam, he or she is rewarded with a home, a car, a bonus of 2,600 dollar and a monthly allowance of 260 dollar.

I guess the punishment is far better than the beheading prescribed by the Qu'ran, but it's still a far cry from personal freedom.

Tadzjikistan discriminates non-Muslims

AsiaNews reports that the Tadzjikistan parliament considers forbidding religious education for children below the age of 7 years. But there's a catch: the measure only applies to religious minorities with less than 400 members per district. As Tadzjikistan is Islamic, the measure is clearly intended to suppress non-Islamic religions. 22 Religious minorities have appealed to the Tadzjikan president.

Should the proposal become law, not only 400 members per district will be required, but also 800 in a city, and 1200 in the capital Dushanbe. It would also require that every member is registered with full personal details. The old law recognized religious minorities as small as 10 members.
