Boundary island benefits seen to flow

The government has come up with a new catchphrase to describe the Hong Kong Boundary Crossing Facilities Island on the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau bridge “the world converging.”

Writing in his blog, Secretary for Development Paul Chan Mo-po said the government has initial plans for the island with reference to foreign success in “bridgehead economy development,” meaning the use of geographical advantages strategically so that the newly developed location may be a bridgehead to boost economic activities.

Chan said that with the island’s proximity to the Hong Kong International Airport, it could serve as a gateway for Hong Kong and the western Pearl River Delta.

The three directions of the development under such a theme would be: experiencing Hong Kong and the world; business launchpad and logistics support; and aiming to provide spots for tourists, creative industry, logistics and business services on the 150-hectare island.

Lawmaker Yiu Si-wing, who represents the tourism constituency, said he is generally positive toward the direction of the development.

Yiu forecasts a 50 percent increase in tourists visiting the city following the completion of the bridge, the airport north commercial district, Hong Kong Disneyland phase two, and the third airport runway.

“One worry is that the government seems to be doing a lot of the planning alone. Without cooperating with the Airport Authority, the development of the shopping areas in both the airport north commercial district and the island may be competing for the same group of tourists,” Yiu said.

“More cooperation and communication is needed so as to maximize the benefits of the whole tourism development on Lantau Island.”

The first stage of the project Community Engagement was launched earlier this month to collect public opinions on the initial concept and comments for the possible land use.

Chan hopes the island will bring employment opportunities. Apart from the bridge, the commercial district, Tung Chung new town extension, Siu Ho Wan and Sunny Bay reclamation are also on the development agenda.

Finnish Politician Condemns Multiculturalism, Enrages SJWs

On the 25th of July a True Finn’s Member of Parliament, Olli Immonen, released aFacebook update where he openly declares to be against a multicultural Finland. The text was posted in English and it is included below in its original form:

I’m dreaming of a strong, brave nation that will defeat this nightmare called multiculturalism. This ugly bubble that our enemies live in, will soon enough burst into a million little pieces. Our lives are entwined in a very harsh times. These are the days, that will forever leave a mark on our nations future. I have strong belief in my fellow fighters. We will fight until the end for our homeland and one true Finnish nation. The victory will be ours.

Needless to say, there was a quick reaction from Finnish politicians and media. Even the Swedish media picked up on the story. The first to the fight was Finland Swedish professor Kimmo Grönlund from Åbo Academy, who stated that the Facebook post was a “call to violence” and unless the True Finns party takes action against Mr. Immonen and remove him from the Finnish parliament they are condoning racist thinking.

Mr. Immonen responded by stating that he “won’t go back an inch” on what he has stated. Furthermore, he released a second Facebook update to rebuke Professor Grönlund’s respons. I have freely translated his response below:

The Swedish speaking professor Grönlund has completely lost his temper after my yesterday’s Facebook update. The multiculturalist Grönlund ought to take a breather before releasing press statements. To Grönlund, I say that Finland is not like Sweden where nationalist minded political parties are isolated and forced to kick out their members for offending the Green-Leftist elite’s multicultural world view. I will not go back an inch from my defense of a nationalistic Finland. If Grönlund wants a limited freedom of speech and the persecution of those who disagree politically with him, he could move for example, to Sweden. But first, he must resign.

More or less everyone in Finnish politics has attacked Mr. Immonen for his views, starting from the Prime Minister and Minister of Finance. There is one notable exception: Mr. Jussi Halla-aho, a True Finns party’s Member of European Parliament, who stated that he would like to clarify that he is also against the ugly bubble of multiculturalism and against multiculturalism in general.

He also questions why it is newsworthy that someone from the True Finns party is against multiculturalism, as the party has always had similar views. Halla-aho added as a final remark that he does not share Mr. Immonen’s optimism that the bubble will burst before it has ruined European societies.

Meanwhile in Sweden 

The Swedish press quickly reacted and Svenska Dagbladet responded by writing a news article that claims that the True Finns party “grows hate speech.” Nobody can be surprised that the Swedish media would rush first to condemn the statement by Mr. Immonen, as Sweden is by far the most caught up in the dream of multiculturalism of all the Nordic states.

Coincidentally, the beautiful fruit of multiculturalism yields was again visible as on the 26th of July, when another hand grenade exploded and shook the immigrant rich area of Malmö during the early hours of the morning. This explosion was the latest in a series of similar events.

On Tuesday the 21st of July, a similar explosion, also caused by a hand grenade injured one person. Evidently, the Swedish authorities believe that these explosions are revenge for the sentencing of “three young men,” words most frequently used in the PC press to mean immigrants, for a bomb strike that occurred on Christmas Eve in Rosengård, Malmö.

The situation in Finland grows more difficult—on the one hand Finns do not want to duck in fear of hand grenades on Christmas Eve, but also, nobody wants violence based on racial prejudices. The crux of the issue with multiculturalism in Finland is that the problems related to it are not yet so widespread as to require overly drastic action, as reversing the situation in Sweden would now require.

The author believes that having a civilized discussion, and subsequent policy changes could solve the issues related to multiculturalism in Finland, however, this will not occur if the current persecution of those voicing their views against multiculturalism continues.

This may in turn eventually lead to what John F. Kennedy very aptly described in his statement: “Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.

At Anti-Bullying Conference, Middle Schoolers Learn About Lesbian Strap-On Anal Sex, Fake Testicles

In rural, small-town Iowa, a group of parents and community leaders is seeking to prevent students from the local taxpayer-funded middle school and high school from attending future versions of an anti–bullying conference for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender teens.

The last one — in April — left many of the denizens of Humboldt, Iowa up in arms, reports Des Moines NBC affiliate WHO-TV.

Iowa Safe Schools, an activist group out of Des Moines, hosted the conference.

It was quite something.

Among the nearly two dozen speakers, “only two” addressed bullying, one attendee estimated, according to EAGnews.org.

The rest of the sessions involved issues such as “how to pleasure their gay partners.”

Middle school girls from Humboldt (pop.: 4,690) had the opportunity to learn “how to sew fake testicles into their underwear in order to pass themselves off as boys.”

One speaker wore a dress made out of condoms to which could be “used as needed.” Another speaker raised the important middle-school issue of using the Internet to locate an orgy.

A father from Des Moines whose daughter attended the conference described the girl’s experience.

“She thought she was attending this conference to learn how students can be supportive of their homosexual peers,” he explained, according to EAGnews.

“When she got there, it wasn’t really on bullying; it was basically a sexual education class for same-sex couples,” the mad dad said. “It was crude. One presenter told students who asked whether anal sex hurt that, as a lesbian, it really depended on how big the device is that their partner straps on.”

The main, featured speaker, drag performer Miss Coco Peru, cussed a lot and encouraged attendees to vandalize the property of critics.

Peru also sang a song. It went: “People suck. They don’t give a fuck about you. People thrive on smashing our pride to the ground. People that suck, fuck you.”

Still another speaker discussed “how pleasurable it is for gay couples to eat each other’s behinds” and how using flavored oils can improve the taste, notes EAGnews.

Thousands of middle schoolers and high schoolers from the region attended the April event.

Humboldt, Iowa school district superintendent Greg Darling said the funding for students in the district to attend the conference was provided by a student-run organization.

He said he could do nothing to prevent the club which sponsored attendance at the event from fundraising for it next year or sending local students.

“We support all clubs in the school that meet the polices and procedures,” Darling told WHO-TV. “We are an equal opportunity school and do not discriminate against anyone. We strive to have a positive learning environment in the district but we do not support any group of individuals who uses profanity in presentations.”

Nate Monson, executive director of Iowa Safe Schools, said parents who worry about middle school kids hearing about anal sex with strap-ons and analingus are “disgusting.”

“It’s incredibly frustrating that adults are being the problem and being the bully,” Monson told the Des Moines NBC affiliate. “We can do better in Iowa.”
