Sweet. Jonathan Pie tears Count Dankula’s sentencing a new one

  • By: Timon Dias
  • Jonhy P. delivering once again. Especially if you haven’t heard enough “fucks” and “cunts” yet this week, do yourself a favour. Of course, it’s about Count Dankula’s sentencing for the video below, in which he taught his girl’s pug to do Nazi salutes while saying “gas the Jews”. The judge deemed “context to be irrelevant” and found him guilty of “inciting racial hatred”.

    European Parliament’s new anti-terrorism report: “Radicalisation not to be associated with any one ideology or faith, may occur within any of them”

  • By: Vincent van den Born
  • “whereas, because of terrorism and radicalisation, there is much stereotyping of religions, which in turn is bringing about renewed upsurges of hate crimes and hate speech motivated by racism, xenophobia or intolerance of opinions, beliefs or religions; whereas it must be pointed out that it is the perverse misuse of religion, and not religion per se, that is one of the causes of radicalisation.”

    Jordan Peterson responds in written publication to what the alt-right calls the ‘Jewish Question’

  • By: Timon Dias
  • “The players of identity politics on the far right continue ever-so-pathologically to beat the anti-Semitic drum, pointing to the over-representation of Jews in positions of authority, competence and influence (including revolutionary movements). I’m called upon–sometimes publicly, sometimes on social media platforms–to comment on such matters, and criticized when I hesitate to do so (although God only knows why I would hesitate :))”

    Lol. Did the new Slovak Prime Minister just drop his ‘magic powder’ in front of a dozen cameras? 

  • By: Timon Dias
  • Well, we don’t know man, we just work here. But if the speculations are even trending on 9Gag, you better get your PR in order. Some are rushing to his defence, inserting that it’s an innocent toothpick (below), while others are counterclaiming that it looks like a toothpick because the bag is now folded between his fingers. Anyhow, the freshly appointed Slovak Prime Minister Peter “The Snowman” Pellegrini has some explaining to do.

    100 French public intellectuals sign pamphlet rejecting ‘Islamism’. Good stuff, so we translated it

  • By: Vincent van den Born
  • The new separatism advances undercover. It wants to appear benign, but in reality, it is the weapon with which political and cultural Islamism seeks to conquer. Islamism seeks to be separate, because it rejects others, which includes Muslims that do not share its ideas. Islamism detests the sovereignty of democracy, because it denies its legitimacy completely. Islamism feels humiliated just because it is not dominant.

    Summary: Kenneth Clark’s Civilisation Part 6 shows little love for the Germans

  • By: Vincent van den Born
  • One might assert that his view of Germany is a 20th-century sentiment speaking through a man who has lived through both World Wars, and is maybe somewhat inappropriate for a discussion of the late 15th century. When Clark talks about “these destructive national characteristics,” he uses 19th-century concepts that barely fit the political or cultural constellation around 1500.

    Mythology – Was Thor a drag queen? Well, yes, but he had his reasons you know

  • By: Robert Ossenblok
  • And so it came to be, Thor dressed as a bride and pretended to be Freya, who was about to be married off to ThrymskvidaI. At the banquet, Thor, whose near-limitless appetite was only matched by his lack of self-restraint, ate whole oxen and drank by the barrel. When the king inquired about the bride’s appetite, Loki ensured him it was only because the bride was so in love that she had lost her appetite for the previous days. Only now, in the presence of her one true love, was she able to eat again.

    European Parliament calls for three new taxes “to match EU’s ambitions”, despite being €24.7 billion behind in payments

  • By: Vincent van den Born
  • The clip also claims that MEP’s stress that EU taxpayers should not have to pay more. Instead, the EU needs to find new, own resources. The clip’s suggestions?

    “a financial transaction tax, a digital sector tax, and a share of corporate tax revenue or environmental taxes.”

    It is hard to see how more taxes are ‘own resources’, rather than, well, more taxes.

    Cathy Newman: “The internet is being written by men with an agenda”

  • By: Timon Dias
  • It’s worth pointing out here that Cathy is not making this stuff up. Being the investigative TOC journalists that we are, some Twitter searches on “Cathy Newman cunt”, “Cathy Newman bitch” definitely do result in near-endless hits.

    A search on “Cathy Newman execute”, however, only resulted in a tweet saying “Cathy Newman would have voted to execute Socrates”, which, well, you know, is probably true.

    Belgium: Two Dutch women raped by four men “of African descent” named as Mohamed S. (22), Tijani D. (19), Eliel B. (20) and Lamine N. (20)

  • By: Vincent van den Born
  • According to the NOS, the Public Prosecutor in Antwerp is investigating a gang-rape “involving” two Dutch women, after they visited a party in the Antwerp discotheque Roxy. They got talking with a group of men, and were probably drugged afterwards: the women told the police they can’t remember anything from after the party. The NOS reports that three men have been apprehended and that police are searching for a fourth.

    Nieuwsblad gives a different number of suspects. Their article reports five suspects.

    Summary. Kenneth Clark’s Civilisation Part 5 – The Hero as Artist: Michelangelo, Raphael and Leonardo da Vinci

  • By: Vincent van den Born
  • Clark describes Medieval Rome, maybe too harshly, as a time when the Romans lived in their city, essentially as people without a past. Pressed down by the weight of the giants of Antiquity, which they no longer understood, they treated the city as if it was a natural phenomenon. This is, according to Clark, what changed with the Renaissance, when Antiquity no longer oppressed, but was taken as a challenge. Concentrating on art, as always, Clark describes three “heroes” of the Renaissance: Michelangelo, Raphael and Leonardo da Vinci.
