More Moral Confusion at PeTA


Speaking of Research

The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PeTA) are, once again, intent on proving their deep moral confusion to the public.   This time, they felt necessary to comment on the killing of Osama bin Laden with an invitation to bite his head off:

If you’re a little hungry after being up all night watching the news and chanting “USA! USA!” we’ve got the perfect snack for you: PETA’s “Bin Laden Bites” chocolates.

Many vegan readers of PeTA’s blog were not amused by this invitation.

One commented:

[…] How can we promote ethical treatment of animals if we promote violence against human beings as well. Your slipping up PETA. I expect a higher level of ethics and sincerity in your efforts.

Another exclaimed:

This is disgusting! An absolute disgrace to humanity. I cannot actually believe my eyes. What on EARTH does this have to do with the protection of…

Islamisering Europa: Concerten in Zweden afgelast of alleen nog maar voor vrouwen


Door: Xander

Cultuurverrijkers veroorzaken schurftepidemie op scholen in Bonn, medicijnen zijn op vanwege enorm gestegen vraag – Londen: 17 jarig meisje in één uur 3 keer aangerand door migranten; Birmingham: 15 jarig meisje twee keer verkracht door migranten op treinstation.

Terwijl in het regeerakkoord van Rutte III het woord islam niet één keer wordt genoemd, gaat de islamisering van Europa in onverminderd hoog tempo verder. Bij (pop)concerten in Zweden zijn de afgelopen jaren zóveel vrouwen en meisjes aangerand of verkracht door migranten, dat voor het komende jaar tal van jaarlijkse concerten zijn afgelast, óf alleen nog maar voor vrouwen toegankelijk zijn. Oftewel: overeenkomstig met de door de islam geëiste scheiding van de seksen. In de Duitse stad Chemnitz werden politieagenten door Arabische migranten aangevallen en mishandeld toen ze ingrepen nadat de cultuurverrijkers twee meisjes van 14 en 16 meerdere malen probeerden aan te randen.

Zoals bekend staat het linkse ‘multiculti’…

CONCORD, Mass. (AP) — Prison officials in Massachusetts say someone tried to send drugs to an inmate by mailing a laminated prayer card that contained wafer-thin strips of a prescription narcotic. The Boston Globe reports that the state Department of Corrections discovered orange strips of Suboxone sandwiched inside the card, which featured an illustration of Jesus…

Mosque Plan Sparks Backlash In London’s Jewiest Neighborhood


Mosque Plan Sparks Backlash In London’s Jewiest Neighborhood
October 13, 2017 By Ari Feldman

Golders Green residents voting in 2016.
An Islamic group’s plan to build a mosque in a major center of London’s Jewish community has sparked outrage among Jewish residents — and outrage over the outrage — the Jewish Chronicle reported. The backlash began after a former concert venue in the Golders Green neighborhood was bought by the Center for Islamic Enlightening.
A petition against the mosque plan has garnered 4,000 signatures. Most of the complaints refer to concerns about noise and added foot traffic in the area around the mosque.
But a vocal minority are concerned that the mosque will lead to Jewish-Islamic tension.
A prominent local rabbi has attempted to quell concerns over the mosque by comparing the situation to how Jewish integration into the neighborhood was opposed over 90 years ago.
“I suspect it’s the same sort of thing said about Jews moving to Golders Green in the 1920s,” Rabbi Mark Goldsmith told the JC. “Golders Green is not entirely Jewish. It’s a special place to live in and we all get along together. That’s what London is about.”

During and after Hurricane Harvey’s slow and catastrophic crawl over the Gulf states at the end of August, inmates in multiple prisons in Texas were left to suffer in horrifying, inhumane conditions in ravaged facilities across the state, according to nearly 100 inmate accounts obtained by the National Lawyers Guild.

The accounts collected by the NLG report power outages and insufficient access to food, water, and medicine.

Inmates described cells flooded knee-high with water contaminated by urine and feces, as well as the inability to flush toilets, take showers, or change clothes for two weeks.

The United States Penitentiary, Beaumont, operated by the Federal Bureau of Prisons, was inaccessible to visitors for up to a month after the hurricane. In the Texas prisons affected by the storm, officials have either declined to comment on conditions or denied all inmate claims about the conditions.
As the wettest storm on record in US history bore down in the last days of August—dropping five feet of rain in some areas—completely inundating Houston, killing more than 70 people, and damaging almost 200,000 homes, at least five prisons on the east coast of Texas were evacuated.

The logistically intricate process involved moving around 6,000 inmates, including transferring approximately 600 inmates into beds in the Wallace Pack Unit—a facility that had been emptied only weeks earlier after a judge called the conditions at the unit unconstitutionally hot.

The Texas prison population, one of the largest of any state, counting inmates in both state and federal custody (not including Immigration and Customs Enforcement detainees), is around 160,000 inmates.

But while five prisons were evacuated, Texas Department of Criminal Justice (TDCJ) decided not to evacuate the Gist, Leblanc, and Stiles units, and the BOP opted not to evacuate their Beaumont facility. There are over 8,000 combined inmates in those four prisons….

Was Gallier und Katalanen gemein haben


Brights - Die Natur des Zweifels

Eine fiese Zentralmacht und ein Volk, das mehr Unabhängigkeit will: Die Autoren des neuen Asterix-Bandes sehen erstaunliche Parallelen zwischen Comic und Wirklichkeit.

Frankfurter Allgemeine

Die Macher des neuen „Asterix“ sehen in ihrem Comic überraschende Parallelen zur aktuellen Lage in Katalonien. Autor Jean-Yves Ferri und Zeichner Didier Conrad sagten der Nachrichtenagentur AFP, ihr neues Buch „Asterix in Italien“ sei ungewollt „ein Gleichnis über die europäische Einigung“ geworden sowie über die aktuellen Zerfallserscheinungen in Europa. In dem Band geht es um ein Pferderennen zwischen verschiedenen Völkern der antiken Welt, das Julius Cäsar ausrichten lässt.

„Die Frage, ob man sich in diesem Wettbewerb solidarisch verhält oder nicht, ob man Gewalt gegen die Gegner ausübt oder das ablehnt, das erinnert mich an die Situation in den verschiedenen Regionen, die nach Autonomie streben, insbesondere in Katalonien“, sagt Ferri. Das sei allerdings nicht seine…

Some conspiracists think Theresa May and Angela Merkel are in the illuminati because of a hand gesture

Theresa May is entering her second week as prime minister.

She has said that the UK will no longer take up its scheduled presidency of the EU Council next year and will instead focus on its preparations to leave the union.

The UK was due to take over for the second half of 2017, but it’s possible we may have triggered Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty by then.

In a statement, a Downing Street spokesperson said:

The president of the European council Donald Tusk called the Prime Minister yesterday evening to congratulate her on her appointment.

The prime minister explained that we will need to carefully prepare for the negotiations to leave the EU before triggering Article 50.

This may have been…

Rescue Ladino, The Language Of Sephardic Jews

Rescue Ladino, The Language Of Sephardic Jews
Sarah AroesteJune 12, 2017Shmuel Aiello
Ladino, the language of Sephardic Jews, also represents a culture that has survived hundreds of years and is still relevant today. And more people need to know about it.
Ladino is a pan-Mediterranean language that crosses geographic, linguistic and cultural boundaries. Otherwise known as Judeo-Spanish, Ladino is the hybrid dialect that Jews from the Iberian Peninsula developed after their expulsion from the region in the 15th century. As they dispersed, they took the Castilian Spanish they had been speaking and combined it with bits and pieces of languages from the countries where they ended up settling. In this medieval Spanish, you can hear interwoven words of Portuguese, French, Italian, Greek, Turkish, Hebrew, Arabic and more. Today, UNESCO lists Ladino as endangered.
