Coronavirus Highlights Irrelevance of Entertainment Elite

The Iconoclast zeroes in on possibly the most beneficial silver lining of the Wuhan coronavirus pandemic. America’s version of royalty — the entertainment elite — is suffering from a “crisis of relevancy.” The posturing, self-important leftists comprising it have been “exposed as egotistical narcissists.”

Forgive me for the excruciating first half minute of this video, but nothing emphasizes the cluelessness and irrelevance of Tinseltown glitterati like watching them sing John Lennon’s moonbat anthem “Imagine” while normal people lose their jobs:

“This Is Unprecedented” – South Africa Invokes Military-Controlled Lockdown As Infections Soar

“The law is that you stay at home. The exception is for survival: food [and] health, with security forces making sure that the law is enforced,” government minister, Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, said.

The sale of alcohol and cigarettes has been banned for three weeks, along with any outdoor activity such as jogging, walking dogs, and or going to the park. The government warned that offenders would be prosecuted and either fined or jailed.

South African President Cyril Ramaphosa tested negative for COVID-19 on Thursday. He visited troops at a military base in Soweto township outside Johannesburg before they launched deployments across the country.

“I send you out to go and defend our people against coronavirus,” Ramaphosa said.

French Official Says Quarantine Should Not be Enforced in Migrant Areas to Avoid Riots

A top government official in France has admitted that draconian lockdown measures being imposed on the rest of the population shouldn’t be implemented in the country’s migrant-heavy ghettos in order to prevent riots.

In a letter leaked to magazine Le Canard Enchaine, French Secretary of State to the Ministry of the Interior Laurent Nunez advises, “It is not a priority to enforce closings in certain neighborhoods and to stop gatherings.”

In a separate video conference call, Nunez told other officials that restricting movement and shutting down shops in France’s infamous banlieues risks igniting violent social disorder if enforced too rigorously.

Germany plays Russian roulette with Covid-19, welcomes refugees from high-risk infection zones

Germany has imposed harsh travel restrictions, essentially entering a bunker mentality amid creeping hysteria seizing the country. Only German nationals or foreign citizens with an “urgent reason to travel” may cross the border. Shockingly, however, refugees from the Middle East and Africa arriving at Germany’s border in search of asylum are given the red carpet treatment into the country.

While it may be difficult to argue against providing humanitarian assistance to refugees under ‘normal circumstances,’ what’s the point in imposing a transnational quarantine if you’re going to let in a select category of people whose movements can’t be tracked for infection safety?

To do so in the middle of a deadly global pandemic is a bit like puffing away on a cigarette at a gas station. At the very least it makes for some very poor optics.

Nietzsche (ᛣ 1900–2020): System Virtue-Signaling vs. the Great Replacement

One could start with the expression “the great replacement.” This wording, coined by the writer Renaud Camus, is deemed unworthy by the System.[iv] Nonetheless, although Camus’ book is very useful, its title may be subject to misunderstanding. Instead of the expression “the great replacement,” one is tempted to use a more specific expression: “the great invasion.” However, even the term “invasion” harks back to the notion of the political of the previous centuries when its use was generally accompanied by an armed conflict—which is not the case for the time being with the floods of non-Europeans who are being adorned by the Western media with the sentimental title “refugees.” Understandably, the System and its scribes must avoid the usage of the terms “invasion” or “replacement,” preferring instead the romantic expressions such as “cultural enrichment” or “diversity”—terms which went global after having first appeared in the American language in the 80s of the previous century. Moreover, even if one were to agree on the label “invasion” when describing Afro-Asian migrants on their way to Europe, the choice of this word would take us far off into the field of polemology, a subject that can be tackled only in passing.

According to Nietzsche the moralization of politics leads to chaos which he labels with the word “democracy.” It is incumbent therefore upon his readers to study the effects of democracy peddled globally by the System if one was to grasp the incoming tide of chaos. To that effect it suffices to listen to the hypermoralistic language of the ruling class in order to realize that the true goal of their political experiments—dubbed “democracy” and “diversity”—is nothing else but a gigantic hoax. The outpouring of hypermoralistic narratives among Euro-American leaders, other than serving as a legal smokescreen for humanitarian actions on behalf of non-European migrants, also functions as a grand cover up for the repression against independent thinkers.

Bulgaria bans entry of trucks en route to Turkey as Ankara imposes Covid-19 restrictions

Bulgaria has imposed a temporary entry ban on trucks from more than 65 countries that plan to pass through the Balkan state en route to Turkey, the Health Ministry said on Wednesday. The decision was taken after Ankara imposed stringent coronavirus restrictions on truck drivers.

A 45-km long line of trucks has already built up at the Bulgarian-Turkish main border checkpoint of Kapitan Andreevo after Turkey banned entry of truck drivers coming from countries with large coronavirus outbreaks, Reuters reports.

UK Lockdown Chaos: ‘Youths’ Fire Bomb Food Delivery Vans, Launch Missiles at Police

Two supermarket delivery vans were firebombed by a group of “youths” after Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced that the United Kingdom would enter a three week nationwide lockdown.

The group of “anti-social” teenagers took to the streets of Bristol in apparent defiance of the lockdown, throwing bricks through windows, destroying cars, and setting two food delivery vans from the supermarket chain Iceland on fire.

WATCH: Scenes Resembling First World War as ‘Battle of Evros’ Between Greeks, Migrants, Turks Continues

Footage shot from the Greek side of the border and shared by Greek media outlet Proto Thema appears to show Greek personnel and army amublances bathed in noxious fumes in scenes reminiscent of the infamous gas attacks on the trenches of the First World War following one such bombardment.

The Greeks have themselves used tear gas to try and repel illegal aliens hurling rocks and petrol bombs at them, or attempting to tear down or otherwise dismantle border fencing — but recent videos show a number of migrants at the fences now appear to have been supplied with gas masks so they can sustain their attacks on the border regardless.

Romney Says Pelosi, Democrats Put U.S. on Path to ‘Social Destruction’

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) is accusing Democrats who blocked the Senate coronavirus stimulus bill of putting America on a path to “social destruction.”

In a pair of tweets published late Sunday night, Romney exploded at Democrats who, after spending the weekend negotiating a compromise bill that was on the verge of passing with a bipartisan vote, appeared to change their minds after Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi threw a partisan bomb into the chamber.

There is even talk that after five Republican senators were forced to go into quarantine, Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer saw this as an opportunity to gain the upper hand. If that’s the case, the word “cynicism” doesn’t begin to describe what just happened — and what just happened is that a bill that was meant to stabilize our economy and provide immediate relief to American workers and the companies that employ them was sabotaged for partisan reasons at the last minute.

And Romney, who is one of the senators forced into quarantine, is not only furious; he’s sounding the alarm at the potential damage this could cause.

“Nothing in the Senate has shocked me, until today,” Romney tweeted. “Standing in the way of a critically needed rescue package is irresponsible and reckless. Dems say not enough money to states: nearly $200 billion isn’t chump change. Hospitals get at least $75 billion.”
