The terrorist spree killer Brenton Tarrant wrote in his disgusting manifesto that he hoped his murderous rampage at two New Zealand mosques would galvanize governments of the world to overreact causing a chain reaction radicalizing more people to commit violent acts.
Sadly, it looks like Tarrant may be getting his wish as the Australian and New Zealand governments both rush to enact Big Brother crackdowns on civil liberties following his attacks. Australia has even banned a man from the internet completely after the state determined he no longer should have free speech.
The man is also being charged for possessing pistols and other weapons for self-defense purposes that he claims he obtained legally.
ABC Australia reports on how the Orwellian Nightmare is unfolding in the land down under:
“An Adelaide man has been banned from using the internet after allegedly making comments on social media in support of the Christchurch terrorist attack.
Chad Vinzelberg’s alleged online comments prompted police to raid the 37-year-old man’s northern suburbs property on Friday.
They allegedly discovered a replica pistol, which was loaded with a single bullet, two flick knives, an extendable baton under Vinzelberg’s bed, and a medieval mace and a crossbow in his shed.
In an interview with police, Mr Vinzelberg said he thought he had acquired the weapons legally.
Mr Vinzelberg was charged with four counts of possessing prohibited weapons and one count of possessing prescribed equipment.
A police prosecutor told the Elizabeth Magistrates Court that Mr Vinzelberg posed a genuine concern for the safety of the community and that authorities were undertaking further investigations in relation to other devices located at his address.”
This accompanies news that Telstra, Australia’s leading provider for internet services, capriciously took down certain websites following the shooting – setting a dangerous precedent that can be exploited in the future.
We've started temporarily blocking a number of sites that are hosting footage of Friday’s terrorist attack in Christchurch. We understand this may inconvenience some legitimate users of these sites, but these are extreme circumstances and we feel this is the right thing to do.

Individuals who share livestreams of the killer’s rampage can be charged with thought crimes and face years behind bars, and a teenager may pay the price with a lengthy prison sentence as a result of Australia’s totalitarian clamp down on digital speech.

Meanwhile, New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Aldern used the incident to virtue signal. She dawned the hijab, a worldwide symbol of female oppression, to demonstrate to Muslims worldwide that her nation is ripe for conquest.

The tyrannical response from the Australian and New Zealand governments toward their people is likely going to fuel more extremism as radical Islamists plot revenge attacks. The big winner from this overreaction is the loathesome Tarrant, who is watching these wretchedly incompetent government officials dance to his tune from his jail cell.
New York Young Republican Club Teams Up With Swedish Youth Organization to Promote Populism
On September 18, 2020, the New York Young Republican Club announced a partnership with Konservativa Förbundet, a nonpartisan student organization with the mission of spreading conservative views among the Swedish youth.
The partnership between the two conservative organizations has plans of promoting cultural exchange by providing networking opportunities and offering members of each organization the chance to learn about the political and social context they operate in.
The NY Young Republican Club noted that Sweden became the first country to get rid of censorship and protect the freedom of the press in 1766. The Freedom of Act (Tryckfrihetsförordningen), which is descended from that Enlightenment-era law, forms an integral part of Sweden’s uncodified constitution. The U.S. followed in Sweden’s footsteps by embracing the freedom of the press through its ratification of the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
Although leftist Swedish governments passed laws banning “hate speech” over the past few years, free speech is still strong compared to other EU members with more draconian hate speech policies. The NY Young Republican Club and Konservativa Förbundet will hold discussions on the best practices to combat free speech infringements. They will use specific examples such as the case of Austin Tong to put free speech awareness on the map.
Swedish immigrants were one of the most important migrant groups that came to the U.S. at the end of the 19th century. 1.4 million first and second-generation Swedish immigrants lived in the U.S. by 1910. They left their mark on the frontier and prominent cities such as Chicago. Swedish Americans like John Nordstrom and Oscar Frederick founded corporations that are among the most respected in the country.
Although the use of the Swedish language decreased among Swedish migrants during World War I, Swedish Americans still maintain solid cultural institutions and the achievements of the early waves of Swedish migrants have laid the foundation for a successful migration story.
In the 21st century, Sweden and the U.S. still have strong economic ties. American companies have a strong presence in Sweden, while Swedish retailers such as H&M and IKEA have grown significantly in the U.S. market. As first world, service economies, both countries face similar challenges. Although Swedish migrants largely came to the U.S. legally in the 19th century and immediately made economic contributions, both Sweden and the U.S. are taking in large swaths of low-skilled workers who tend to be burdens on their respective countries’ welfare and social services.
The NY Young Republican Club and Konservativa Förbundet view this trend as “unsustainable.”
In its statement, the NY Young Republican Club concluded:
In addition, the New York Young Republican Club pledges to defend the rights of Swedish Americans and expatriate Swedes to exercise their cultural heritage in a proud and unabashed manner. While Midsummer New York 2020 was canceled due to the ongoing pandemic, we look forward to this annual event returning to Battery Park City in 2021.
The NY Young Republican Club has been active lately in forging alliances with different groups across the globe. BLP previously reported on one of their recent partnerships with Lega Giovani, the youth wing of the Lega party in Italy.
Populist movements across the world will need to band together and pool resources to ensure that they can fight back against their respective political establishments.
Groups like the NY Young Republican Club are leading the way in promoting such a model of international cooperation.
