Re: Brenda Walker's blog post  German Arrested for Los Angeles Arson Attacks and James Fulford's blog Immigrant Arson Suspect Apparently German—Says "I Hate America"

From: Mark Mallarde [Email him]

Uncharacteristically, VDARE.com might be asleep at switch.  The media is elated to report about this apparently Aryan terrorist from Germany to prove that white Europeans can wreak as much chaos as that most nettlesome minority group—Muslims.

Of course, our media does not understand that Germany has changed along with the U.S.  It has adopted a large Muslim population.  That population often burns cars when upset.

True, the German in question's surname is "Burkhart."  You cannot get much more German than that, right?  Surely, he is not a Muslim immigrant but is native-born German.

But the hints keep coming in that he is a Muslim immigrant to Germany.  First, there were the reports about "travel papers" from Chechnya.  According to Wikipedia, Chechnya is 95-percent Muslim.  Now we have a report from The Globe and Mail that Harry and his mother, indeed, "were born in Grozny, the capital of Chechnya."  Further, the two "eventually settled in Germany and become citizens…"[Accused L.A. arsonist begged court to stay in Canada , Toronto Globe And Mail, January 5, 2012]

We do not know if the Burkharts were one of the  few minority Christians in Chechnya.  It seems at least as likely that Mama Burkhart was married to a German at one point or changed her name to help blend in and commit her fraudulent schemes against her German hosts.

Whether the Burkharts are Muslims or not, the media cannot use them as a symbol that German migrants pose as great a threat as ones from Muslim countries.  The Burkharts are from a Muslim country.

Who, if anyone, will find out if they are Muslim?  Will we ever know the truth?

James Fulford writes: This story is still developing. For example, the Burkharts, mother and son, came to the US via Canada, where they tried to claim refugee status from Germany:

“The story of how Dorothee Burkhart and her son ended up in L.A. begins with their arrival in Canada in September 2007.

According to Federal Court documents obtained by Postmedia News, the two fled Germany and applied for refugee status in Canada claiming they feared they would be imprisoned, tortured and killed if they were sent back to their home country.

A right-wing fascist group that they claimed had infiltrated the government and German police was targeting them based on their Russian origin, Dorothee Burkhart told the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada.”[ L.A. arson suspect Harry Burkhart’s mother Dorothee pleaded to stay in Canada, National Post, January 5, 2012]

That’s a very peculiar claim—last I heard, Germany was governed by politically correct anti-Fascists, who actually persecute right-wingers and those with politically incorrect opinions.  And I don’t know if by “Russian origin” above, they mean “Russian-Russian” or Chechen, as Mallarde suggests. We’ll keep an eye on it.

At the same time, there’s also been some anti-Muslim arson in New York,  with mosques firebombed allegedly by a black Guyanese immigrant who was “dissed” in some way by Muslims, and who is being arraigned at Bellevue Mental Hospital.

Of course, guys like that go on rampages all the time—Sam Francis wrote up a case in 2002 in which the headline was Man Shoots 3 In Rampage In East Village in which no one suggested that it was a hate crime. It’s just that in multicultural New York, they have an opportunity to feel aggrieved against Muslim immigrants.
