These dumb Europeans just need to learn from the American corporate/government fascist MSM. When an American man (Thomas Ball) self immolates on the courthouse steps in New Hamphire the MSM just doesn’t report it. Therefore, it never happened. Those who control the present, control the past.

2 + 2 = 5 or whatever the BLS says it equals.

Google Thomas Ball Self Immolation to see how many MSM outlets reported the story: ZERO

Two Spaniards Self-Immolate Due To Financial Problems

First it was a German, then an Italian, and now, two months, later, the European self-immolation wave has spread to the country that many expect will be the next one to follow Greece into effective debt default. El Pais reports that an impoverished 57-year-old man who set himself on fire in Málaga Thursday, and subsequently died of his injuries at Carlos Haya hospital. He had third-degree burns on 80 percent of his body and suffered a multi-organ failure. The victim, thought to be of Moroccan origin, had worked in construction for years but was out of a job now, said people who knew him. In the last few months he had been scraping a living with the small change he made guiding cars into parking spaces near the hospital, an illegal practice that is usually overlooked by authorities. The police, who have not yet located his relatives, are not ruling out the possibility of an accident just as the man was lighting up a cigarette. Just two minutes before the event, he bought a pack of cigarettes from a local newsstand whose owner asked him how he was doing.

“I don’t even have enough money for food,” he replied. The man is thought to have been homeless at the present time, and seemed even more depressed than on other occasions, said the stand owner.

Several taxi drivers came to the rescue with their vehicles’ fire extinguishers when they saw the man go up in flames on a side street from the hospital. A few hours after being admitted into the emergency room there, he was transferred to a specialized burn unit in Seville, where doctors were unable to save his life.

He was the unlucky one – as BBC follows, another Spaniard also lit himself on fire on Thursday night, in the same city, but lived.


Another man is being treated in the same hospital apparently after setting himself alight in Malaga on Thursday.


The 63-year-old was found with serious injuries beside his burning car under a road bridge, police said.


No other details were given of that man but, according to Spain’s El Mundo newspaper, preliminary investigations indicated that the fire had been lit intentionally.

Spanish media have reported a number of cases in recent months of people facing poverty in the country’s recession killing themselves.

Considering it was an identical act of self-immolation in Tunisia that set off the Arab Spring in the winter of 2011, Europe has for shown far more resiliency to socio-economic collapse than many had expected, although this is not unexpected: after all, Europeans, and especially Spaniards, still have more to lose than gain by rising up against a reverse Robin Hood globalist system bent on taking from what’s left of the middle class and giving to the status quo banking oligarchy. Or so they think: the big strawman, is and for the past 150 years has been the welfare state myth.

Then again, now that Spain has almost drained its entire social security fund, and replaced it with worthless ECB repo material, i.e., Spanish bonds, will Spaniards finally wake up and realize that while they were snoozing, their government spent 90% of their pension and retirement money to prop up the Ponzi for one more year. And instead of committing suicide, or even patching up various symptomps, shouldn’t the people of Spain, and all of Europe, finally address the real underlying cause of their misery: a dysfunctional government, which contrary to indication, is merely a puppet in a banker-led globalist system?

If not, how many more people have to burn themselves to death before it becomes clear?


  1. Actually, I believe suicide is illegal, at least in the US. But ‘luck’ is not surviving a self immolation. Being burned is unbelievably painful; people have been known to scream with pain while having their wounds cleaned even under anesthesia. I hope God has pity on the souls who’ve suffered enough to do this with their life.

  2. Stuck

    Google the story about the Tunisian man who self immolated and you may notice thousands of U.S. MSM articles about him. 99% of Americans don’t even know where the fuck Tunisia is, but they know the Arab Spring began with this poor schmuck’s self immolation.

    So why is a Tunisian self immolation news worthy in the U.S. but not the only self immolation suicide that I’ve ever heard about in the U.S.?

  3. It was newsworthy because it is exactly as you said ….. because the Tunisian guy’s suicide led to a Revolution.

    The Tunisian guy protested about something very important to Tunisians … the high cost of vegetables. Likewise, the American guy should have self immolated for something Americans actually care about …. like, maybe, not enough new Honey Boo Boo episodes.

  4. ” The Tunisian guy’s suicide led to a revolution”

    Check….and that is precisely why the self-immolation of Thomas Ball gets hushed up. The elites who own the American media don’t need no stinkin’ revolutions getting started in these parts. It’s bad for business.

  5. I just googled Thomas Bell, not much about him. There was a link that had a brief story and the entire letter he dropped off at a local newspaper before he self-immolated. It is extremely lengthy and I couldn’t finish it all, but the guy seems to have spent a large amount of time researching the topics that were affecting his life.

    I can tell you right now, after reading that half of the letter, that it is no surprise that it received zero coverage, the guy is actively telling disenfranchised men to burn down government buildings and even briefly instructing them on how to do so.

    The only “revolution” the media will cover is the one the government intentionally tries to start.

  6. “When an American man (Thomas Ball) self immolates on the courthouse steps in New Hamphire the MSM just doesn’t report it. Therefore, it never happened. Those who control the present, control the past.”

    I read Thomas Ball’s farewell letter before he torched himself. Yes, it is long. But I do not get the impression that this was a deeply troubled or cruel, abusive human being. Ball carefully reviewed his circumstances and the flaws in our society which led to his suicide. He was most definitely mentally alert and competent.

    Thomas Ball was CRYING OUT AGAINST THE INJUSTICE OF “THE SYSTEM.” In his case, it all started with a child “abuse” charge and turned into a long, long legal nightmare. He finally pulled the plug in what only can be described as one of the most horrific ways to die.

    I do not think he deserved to die that way. TPTB drove him to it. And his grisly suicidal death certainly deserved national attention. Period. Punto.

  7. Shit, let’s ban gasoline. Might kill someone who douses himself/herself with it and farts fire….

    Gasoline kills.. Can’t have that.


  8. “So boys, we need to start burning down police stations and courthouses. The Second Set of Books originated in Washington. But the dirty deeds are being carried out by our local police, prosecutors and judges. These are the people we pay good money to protect us and our families. And what do we get for our tax money? Collaborators who are no different than the Vichy of France or the Quislings of Norway during the Second World War. All because they go along to get along. They are an embarrassment, the whole lot of them. And they need to be held accountable. So burn them out.

    In the last 25 years they have arrested one in six adults in this country and forced 25% of the men, women and children into homelessness. In 50 years it will be one in three adults arrested and 50% of the men, women and children ending up homeless. Most of our kids will live to the age of 68 years old. As bad as it was for you, your children will have twice the odds of it happening to them.

    Some of you will say that 50% homelessness sounds absurd. But 25% is absurd and that is already here. There is no evidence that the police, courts, or government is planning to do anything different in the immediate future. And they will not do anything different until we make it so uncomfortable that they must change. Bureaucracy at its worst. So burn them out. This is too important to be using that touchy-feeling coaching that is so popular with business these days. You need to flatten them, like Wile E. Coyote. They need to be taught never to replace the rule of law. BURN-THEM-OUT!

    Most of the police stations built in New England over the last 20 years are stone or brick. Fortunately, the roofs are still wood. The advantage of fire on the roof is that it is above the sprinklers. But even the sprinklers going off work to our advantage. There is no way they can work in a building with six inches of water. And I am certain we will disrupt their momentum once they start working out of a FEMA trailers. If they still do not get the message, then burn down the trailers.

    The easiest way of burning a building is with the Molotov cocktail. It was invented by the Finns when the Soviets invaded in 1939. You fill a bottle with gasoline and stuff a rag in the end for a wick. You light the wick and throw bottle, It shatters on impact spraying gas everywhere and the wick ignites the gas. Simple, readily available, and effective. And only two things to remember.

    First, use a glass bottle. Thinner glass is better than thicker glass. You want it to shatter on impact. When I was teaching a kid at the high school on the West Side Worcester, MA. threw a Molotov cocktail into his school. Fortunately, he used a plastic bottle. It burned about three square inches of carpeting. I had to laugh when I said to myself, “Thank God for dumb kids.”

    Second, you need to tie the rag to the bottle. Nothing worse that throwing a Molotov cocktail, landing where you wanted it, and having it shatter perfectly. Then you noticed the wick had fallen out on the way to the target. No wick-no fire.

    Some of these building will have brick faces and metal roofs. Just break a window and throw the Molotov cocktail inside. Carpets, furniture, computer plastic, even paint on the walls will burn. It is okay if the sprinkler goes off. I wonder if you can get hip waders over a gun belt?

    We had a kid in my hometown that burned down the old junior high school. He walked up to the front door one night with a can of lighter fluid. The applicator on the end squirts the lighter fluid out. He squirted under the door and along the seams and lit a match. The kid took out the entire old part of the building. Why are kids so competent when it is something they should not be doing?

    There will be some casualties in this war. Some killed, some wounded, some captured. Some of them will be theirs. Some of the casualties will be ours.”

  9. Setting fire to oneself because you are mired in poverty is not news. Doing it to protest our totally fucked up family law racket that has destroyed your life is definitely news.

  10. Z

    Exactly; liberals and democrats support “family law”, which results in the dissolution of the family, losing their children, men being raped and losing most of what they have, and 1/3 of what they will earn, and makes lawyers rich. The liberals and progressives own and run most of the media outlets. They (democrats, liberals, lawyers) will some day have to answer for destroying the family, either here or in the after-life.

    “Those who control the present, control the past.”

    Admin is correct, but those who control the present and the media also control the future; as they shape what boobus obesus Americanus will see and be fed, media-wise.

  11. Six Jewish Companies Control 96% of the World’s Media

    “You know very well, and the stupid Americans know equally well, that we control their government, irrespective of who sits in the White House. You see, I know it and you know it that no American president can be in a position to challenge us even if we do the unthinkable. What can they (Americans) do to us? We control congress, we control the media, we control show biz, and we control everything in America. In America you can criticize God, but you can’t criticize Israel…”
