Greta Thunberg Removed From German Performance Art Happening

Like, physically. Is that even allowed?

I mean, is it legal to, you know, touch her? And where did they remove her to? I sure hope it’s an institution that will finally be able to give her the help she so desperately needs. Then we can move on to helping her followers.

Swedish activist Greta Thunberg was removed Sunday by police along with other protesters as they demonstrated against the razing of the German village of Lützerath for the expansion of a coal mine.

Thunberg did not comply with a police request to leave the area, prompting officers to physically escort her away, German media outlet Bild reported. Thunberg was among a group of activists still at the site on Sunday, the newspaper said.

How Stunning And Brave

And hilarious and ridiculous. Absurd, too.

And really, really, dumb. That the media could think anybody is interested in this nonsense anymore, I mean. German catastrophist activists have been performing this dopey performance art ritual since the 80s, at least.

German Of The Day: Nervenzusammenbruch

That means nervous breakdown. Having them is a favorite German pastime. These days especially.

Germans on the verge of a nervous breakdown – It’s a sign of the nation’s fraught state of mind that many seriously believe this week’s unlikely plotters could have toppled democracy.

Early Wednesday, thousands of balaclava-clad German police officers fanned out across the country, arresting 25 people and seizing weapons to upend what authorities described as a diabolical plot to overthrow the country’s government and reinstate the monarchy. The group’s “military arm” was surreptitiously building “a new German army,” the lead prosecutor on the case said.

A day later, however, the case looks more like the script of a Monty Python episode than a sequel to the Day of the Jackal…

Al Qaeda it was not.

German Media Clearly Pissed Off By The Good News

This Putin guy really is a jerk.

Talk about being totally unreliable. The Russians did exactly what they said they were going to do. What’s he got up his sleeve this time?

Nord Stream 1 operator started gas deliveries after maintenance – German media reports.

Gas deliveries through the Nord Stream 1 pipeline have resumed on Thursday and gas was flowing again, Spiegel and daily FAZ reported, citing a report by German newswire dpa.

More Sophisticated Argumentation

Anti-Vaxxers = Nazis.

I know. This comparison has never been tried before. That’s what makes it so, I dunno, sophisticated or something. Yawn.

German Anti-Vaxxers Are Fleeing to Paraguay Just Like Nazis Did 70 Years Ago – A failed Aryan colony, runaway Nazis, and loose coronavirus regulations have led to a flood of European anti-vaxxers arriving in the South American nation.

How Far Is Der Spiegel Willing To Go?

Will “Putin’s Apocalypse” be enough?

Or should they try “Russian racist ideology” and “Russian death camps” first? “World War III” is getting a little tiresome, don’t you think? I just don’t know. It must be tough being a balanced and objective journalist these days.

How Far Is the Russian President Willing To Go? – The West has expressed shock over Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine. But the Kremlin boss has been speaking openly for years about his vision of a Russian empire. This is the escalation he has been seeking for 20 years.

German Of The Day: Gegenteil

That means the opposite.

German state TV in action: An Islamist fires a machine gun in Israel, killing one Israeli and injuring others. Israeli security forces kill the attacker.

What does German state news channel ZDF do? They broadcast: “Israel: Palestinian Shot.”

This is nothing new in “journalism,” of course, whether in Germany or anywhere else. But here you can’t “switch the dail.” Germans are taxed to support these state channels, whether they support them or not.
