As I mentioned the plight of Monika Schaefer in my previous blog post, I thought this would be a good opportunity to finally upload to YouTube a recording of one of our performances together.
In March last year during a tour of Canada organised by free speech campaigner, Paul Fromm, I had the pleasure of performing twice in the province of Alberta with Monika. In my opinion, Monika is the perfect playing companion: no need to give her detailed instruction, she knows exactly where it’s at, musically speaking. Her emotions are intact and authentic – a blessing when one knows that Monika has now been held on remand in Germany for over three months for the crime of merely expressing an opinion.
Historical revisionism is a forbidden topic in the so-called ‘democratic’ state of Germany where there are currently thousands of people in jail for thought crime. As Monika is a Canadian citizen of German origin, the authorities did not grant her bail because she is considered a flight risk.
You can hear some of Monika’s letters from prison read out by yours truly, Down The Rabbit Hole with Andrew Carrington Hitchcock every Friday. Please write to her, sending your best wishes of encouragement and support.
The recording is very basic – an iPhone placed on the top of an even less basic keyboard. Monika’s accompaniment helps to lift the ambiance. The song is a parody of Edith Piaf’s La vie en rose and describes my ongoing legal ordeal from the satirical perspective of my accusers at the Campaign Against Antisemitism (CAA). You can find a better quality audio version here, this time on guitar – alas, without violin accompaniment.
The CAA, a pro-Israel lobbying front parading as a charity, was recently in the news for organising a demo at the London Labour party HQ in a bid to oust Her Majesty’s Opposition Leader, Jeremy Corbyn. In a shock move, ex-BNP leader Nick Griffin yesterday came out in support of Corbyn over Syria. Unsurprisingly, the mainstream has gone into total meltdown.
Interestingly, my songs also get a mention today on the Socialist Workers Party England (SWPE) website in a segment which expresses almost to the letter the same ‘strategy’ argument espoused by my critics within the Revisionist-Nationalist movement.
Life is never dull!
Enjoy the video and please support Monika and all other victims of tyrannical oppression.
