EU signs European Council’s Istanbul Convention, aimed at social engineering of ‘gender roles’

  • By: Vincent van den Born
  • Surely, all EU member countries had these in place already? Why is this rambling piece of undemocratic legislation, which states the obvious in one case, before overstepping mandates in the next, considered to be such a major milestone? Where is the debate, where is the democratic mandate for these attempts at social engineering?

    Awkward stuff. Israeli Judoka wins tournament in Abu Dhabi, which refuses to show Israeli flag / play Israeli anthem

  • By: Timon Dias
  • That turned awkward rather quick when Flicker won gold, and it made for some quite poetic footage. Flicker remained calm and collected and whispered his country’s Hatikvah, while the organisation played the International Judo Federation’s song [which apparently exists for these occasions] while Flicker was honoured under the International Judo Federation’s flag instead of the Israeli flag.

    Ireland goes full Liberal College Kid and puts Communist Mass Murderer on Stamp to commemorate his Death

  • By: Vincent van den Born
  • “It doesn’t matter that it’s an image created by an artist, it’s the image of a murderer. And to me it’s really shameful that Ireland would put the image of someone who was a foreigner, went to Cuba to kill… was a failure in everything he did. So I don’t know what’s there to honour about Che Guevara.”

    Swedish feminist praises Islamic Polygamous Marriage, ignores dark sides for Utopian interpretation

  • By: Vincent van den Born
  • Lundegård, faced with the breakdown of traditional marriage – because that is what she describes, even though she tries to hide it – caused as much by feminism and the fight of the ‘progressive Left’ as anyone else, in effect calls for the acceptance of Islamic morals to combat the ills her own movement caused. So the fight against Western Patriarchy has brought us a Feminist defence of a system more oppressive to women than Western Patriarchy.

    France: Man on Terrorism Watch List just became a Police Officer, after being rejected by French Army

  • By: Vincent van den Born
  • The man tried to enrol in the army, after which the DSGI (General Directorate for Internal Security), France’s intelligence agency, flagged him. Notification of this ‘fiche S’ was sent to the Ministry of the Interior, responsible for France’s police. Despite this, he slipped through the net when, after being rejected by the army, he tried his luck with the police. He was appointed as a Security Assistant (ADS) and began his training for police officer.

    Dear NATO, can your Social Media team please stop what it’s doing?

  • By: Vincent van den Born
  • Are you in the mood to shallowly support NATO? Want to show that, like only five out of 27 member states, you’re all for spending 2% of GDP on defence? Feel compelled to change your FB profile in response to terrible things happening, like an American president pointing out the lack of defence spending among NATO members? Well, have we got news for you! You can now use a NATO filter! It even comes with instruction, so you, like NATO, can be hip and happening on social media. Oh, and next time, at least make it look like you tried by adding some feel good tune. Djeez.

    Meet “Braco the Gazer”. A droopy Croatian who heals crowds with… his gaze

  • By: Timon Dias
  • Yeah, we’re not actually sure what to say, so how about we just don’t say anything and just gaze back. But you know, life can be tough and lonely and if god’s gift to mankind helps you alleviate the pain, knock yourself out man. At least you’d be able to say you have something in common with Naomi Campbell, which might otherwise be pretty hard.

    Needless to say, the scientific community is not convinced, but Braco’s bank account has yet to complain.
