1. Dozens arrested for erecting giant cross in Lesbos meant to deter migrants

Dozens of people were arrested on Sunday on the Greek island of Lesbos for erecting a giant metallic cross meant to deter migrants and refugees from reaching the island.

Police arrested 35 Greek citizens and an Albanian man on charges of arbitrary occupation of public property and erecting an illegal construction. The site on the cliffs of Apellia in Mytilene — Lesbos' capital city — is on the grounds of the island's famed fortress and is protected by archaeological law.

It comes after a cement cross was similarly erected in August 2018, drawing the ire of the local "Coexistence and Communication in the Aegean" group, which denounced the monument as "offensive to the symbol of Christianity, a symbol of love and sacrifice, not of racism and intolerance."

It labelled those who had erected it as "aspiring crusaders" and called on authorities to take it down.

2. Report: Immigrants behind 70 percent of violent crime in Oslo

A report from Norwegian media has revealed that over the last year, around 70 percent of those convicted for violent crimes in Oslo have been immigrants.

Oslo courts have seen a total of 140 individuals convicted of violent crimes and then sentenced in the last year. Two out of three of those convicts have been revealed to be migrants, Norwegian broadcaster TV2 reports.

According to Statistics Norway, the number of immigrants as a part of the total population of Oslo is 33 percent, meaning that in violent crime, immigrants are vastly overrepresented.

3. Furious Muslim parents withdraw 600 kids from Parkfield School over “LGBT” row

Furious Muslim parents reportedly withdrew 600 children from Parkfield Community School today after claiming they were being "brainwashed" over gay lifestyles.

The pupils were taken out of classes as the row surrounding LGBT lifestyles being taught openly in the classroom escalated.

Some reports suggest as many as 80 per cent of the children at Parkfield Community School in Saltley have been removed - around 600.

Kids have been withdrawn over the school's "undermining of parental rights and aggressively promoting homosexuality", according to Alum Rock Community Forum.

The forum adds: "Dialogue, petitioning and protests by parents have been repeated and arrogantly ignored.

'Our children, Our Choice - Work with parents not against them.'”

10. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s chief of staff ran $1M slush fund by diverting campaign cash to his own companies

Two political action committees founded by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s top aide funneled over $1 million in political donations into two of his own private companies, according to a complaint filed with the Federal Election Commission on Monday.

The cash transfers from the PACs — overseen by Saikat Chakrabarti, the freshman socialist Democrat's chief of staff — run counter to her pledges to increase transparency and reduce the influence of "dark money" in politics.

Chakrabarti's companies appear to have been set up for the sole purpose of obscuring how the political donations were used.

The arrangement skirted reporting requirements and may have violated the $5,000 limit on contributions from federal PACs to candidates, according to the complaint filed by the National Legal and Policy Center, a government watchdog group.

Good for the local residents who labelled the metal cross “offensive to the symbol of Christianity, a symbol of love and sacrifice, not of racism and intolerance.” And good for the Rebel on acknowledging it. Often the Rebel itself is seen as a sign of intolerance, but not in this case.

If we only had a Gov’t in Canada that listened to the people; that UN Global Compact thing is going to kill this Country, if it hasn’t already started doing so.

3) I love that the parents are standing up against the sexualization of their children in schools. I want it to be because people are waking up to the damage it causes and what a breech of trust it is between adult and child as well as a threat to parental rights. I don’t want accommodation of any religion to be a part of it.

I look forward to the day when Canadian parents stand up and say NO to this sexualization of children in public schools. A healthy future for our children and society as a whole depend on it.

Justin Trudeau is wrong in his promotion of this.

“1. Dozens arrested for erecting giant cross in Lesbos meant to deter migrants”

Whether those claiming the cross is anti-migrant realize it or not, they are clearly stating that the migrants are anti-Christian and that Greeks must submit to the will of the anti-Christian migrants.
