Why Just The Flag?

Why not ban the organization and the people who wave it?

German government agrees to ban Hamas flag after antisemitic incidents – The German government wants to send a message to Jewish citizens after several antisemitic incidents took place amid pro-Palestinian protests last month.

And You Thought That Art Today Was Trash

How could you not? But some of this older stuff might still be of value to someone, one would think.

“Can I toss this or is it part of the exhibition?”

German police say 17th century paintings found in highway dumpster – An art expert has concluded that the paintings by Pietro Belloti and Samuel van Hoogstraten are originals.

But How Is This Possible?

Germany has some of the strictest gun control laws in the world. And if you manage to get a gun illegally, shooting people is also highly illegal here.

It just doesn’t make any sense. I know! Make the German gun control and shooting people laws even more illegal! Let’s see which political party is the first to demand this, shall we?

German police are searching for a gunman who shot and killed a man and a woman in Espelkamp, a small northern town near the city of Bielefeld.

Police have not hinted at any motive for the shooting, but they say there is no threat to the public…

The popular German tabloid Bild, quoting unnamed sources, says police are now negotiating with the gunman to get him to surrender.

Just Because We Illegally Occupy Apartments Doesn’t Mean We Can’t Illegally Attack You With Stones

Berliners love the smell of left-wing radical madness in Berlin in the morning. They must. Nobody in the red-redder-green Berlin government here plans to do anything about it.

Berlin: ‘Rigaer Strasse’ Looks Like War Zone After Attacks Against Police – A day before fire safety experts are supposed to check an illegally occupied apartment block in Rigaer Strasse, left-wing radicals attacked police officers from roofs, by throwing stones and firecrackers at them. As many as 60 officers were injured.

“People who set tires on fire are not fighting for open spaces used by left-wingers, but harass their own neighborhood.”

Thou Shall Not Drive A Car With An Internal Combustion Engine

Thou shall not fly. Thou shall not participate in free trade…

Bans, prohibitions, Verbote. That’s what green folks do best. And Germany’s latest Green Moses just came down from the mountain. It is election season in Germany, after all. Time for more true Green religion.

German business lobby group defends its mocking of Greens leader – A German business lobby group on Tuesday defended a controversial campaign in which it portrays Greens chancellor candidate Annalena Baerbock dressed as a biblical Moses, holding two tablets under the caption “Annalena and the 10 bans.”

In its campaign, lobby group INSM attacks the Greens’ policies to steer Germans into electric cars and onto trains instead of domestic flights. But its portrayal of Baerbock as Moses has met criticism and accusations of anti-Semitism.

We don’t need a state religion.”

Woman Who Never Worked A Day In Her Life To Turn Germany Into A Socio-Ecological Economy

As soon as anybody can figure out what “socio-ecological economy” means, that is. Might take some time.

Oh yeah, I forgot. There is no more time. The world is coming to an end and man-made CO2 will kill us all and all that. So actually, it’s easy to figure out. All socio-ecological economy means is to spend more and ever more of other people’s money (and their children’s and their grandchildren’s and their…).

Greens vow to turn Germany into ‘socio-ecological economy’ – Party approves election manifesto that calls for fast-tracking of switch to carbon neutrality within next 20 years.

Germans Want Faces Back

They want to save face. No, that’s precisely what they do not want. They don’t want their faces saved. Only if they are in a save place. I mean safe, of course.

Let’s face it. If you take what they say at face value, this means they don’t want companies like Clearview AI all up in their face. And they’re not joking either. They’re demanding that they get their faces back with a straight face.

How I Lost Control Over My Own Face – A company called Clearview AI secretly scrapes the internet for photos, thus producing a gigantic database for government agencies and police. Is it possible to remove yourself from the collection?

Make Iran Nuclear Again!

Germany is certainly doing all it can to reach that goal.

No contradiction here. Although Germany’s Middle East policy is, officially, based on a commitment to protect Israel’s right to exist, the Germans continue to, unofficially, do everything they can to help Iran – a country with a mullah regime that denies Israel’s right to exist – develop nuclear weapons. What could be behind that? Other than future economic gain for German companies in Iran, I mean.

Iran nuclear talks restart as Germany urges flexibility – It’s still unclear whether the talks in Vienna will lead to the restoration of the 2015 nuclear deal. The negotiations come as Iran holds presidential elections next week.
