The establishment and media must stop excusing the actions of the recent Islamist terrorists as being caused by “mental health problems”—because all terrorists have such problems, Freedom Party of Austria (FPÖ) presidential candidate Norbert Hofer has said.
Responding to the latest series of attacks by Muslims in Germany, Hofer said on his Facebook page that the “terror in Europe shows that we need a different policy with regard to foreigners.
“The open borders policies and the false tolerance idea must be ended,” Hofer said.
“We must also reject the notion that such actions are excused by saying that these people have mental health problems. Anyone who commits such an act is always outside the mental norm.”
Hofer was referring to the controlled media’s continued attempts to always portray the Muslim attackers as “loners with mental health issues” instead of reporting the reality that the attacks form part of a deliberate—if autonomous—campaign of Islamist terror.
In each and every case of the most recent attacks—in Nice, Munich, Reutlingen, and Ansbach—the controlled media has either lied outright over the identities of the attackers, or tried to disguise the fact that they were Muslims. The controlled media also often refuses to even admit that the incidents were terrorist attacks.
In Nice, for example, it was claimed that the truck driver was a “loner” who was having domestic issues which caused him to “flip” and engage in the attack—until firm evidence of his ideological position emerged.
Similarly, in the Reutlingen attack, the controlled media claimed that the “asylum seeker” was “frustrated” because his asylum application had been rejected—implying that it was Germany’s fault—and that he had previous “mental health issues” before he took a meat cleaver to passersby in the street.
This same tactic was used by the controlled media in the Munich and Ansbach attacks, although in the case of the Munich shooter they went even further and tried to link the Iranian gunman—who shouted “Allah Akbar” while gunning down his victims—to the anti-Muslim Norwegian shooter Anders Brevik and even the Alternative für Deutschland party, and “xenophobia.”
The Times newspaper in Britain, for example, ran a headline report in its print edition saying that the Munich shooting was motivated by “anti-foreigner” sentiment and warned that “Germany was bracing for a wave of right-wing violence.”
The good news for Hofer is that in the latest opinion poll in Austria, commissioned by the Profil news service, the FPÖ has now decisively taken the lead should that country hold an election today.
According to the poll results, the FPÖ will take 35 percent of the vote, compared to the Socialist Party of Austria’s (SPÖ) 24 percent, and the Austrian Peoples’ Party’s (ÖVP) 20 percent. The Greens stand at 14 percent.
The FPÖ figures are the highest yet—and higher than before the last presidential election in Austria earlier this year, which bodes well for Hofer’s chances in the rerun of that election.
