  1. French politics: houlala!

    Also, former FN members claim that Le Pen's abandoning blatantly racist, particularly anti-semitic positions is just for show. They can still hold and discuss these positions among themselves, but have clear instructions to never do it in public.
  2. German politics xth attempt

    Serdan at his best, as usual! I agree it's disturbing. Also, Erdowie- er, Erdogan has really been riling them up against Germany, with his nazi accusations and suggestions like his "have 5 kids each of you to fight them from within!" comment... But I've generally made my peace with the fact that democracy is SO last century, so ...whatever.
  3. Attempted Coup in Turkey

    Well, he has already basically called the Dutch and the Germans nazis, so it's interesting to see if he can come up with anything worse...
  4. German politics xth attempt

    I think it's definitely time to be horrified, particularly wrt social life in Germany...
  5. Attempted Coup in Turkey

    Looks like Erdogan won, i.e. the majority voted "yes" by a narrow margin. Considering that any critical press has been silenced, many journalists or dissenters imprisoned or fled, Erdogan non-stop on state tv (and giving up to 3 speeches a day), it's certainly not a landslide victory, but still... The final numbers are not out yet.
  6. There is at this moment a press conference of the German government. Germany is a-okay with the bombings. Journalists keep asking whether it is really clear that Assad is responsible for the chemical attack; the speakers keep answering that Assad did it in the past, so...

    Thanks for sharing.
  8. Rant and Rave without Repercussions [S7 Leaks Edition]

    Very good idea, please do! I'm sure there are other crafty people who would collaborate. The FAQ could also point out the contradictions of these repetitive questions... I mean, there are some trolls coming back again and again to this thread (not alluding to recent posters, mind you), so I'd beg to ask: If this thread bothers you so much, why do you come back to it? Which is also a nice answer to the question of why we are watching the show...

    Wow. He refused to do the handshake with Merkel for the press. What a classless a..
  10. US Politics: Lock Him Up!

  11. US Politics: Lock Him Up!

    As long as Trump himself doesn't correct his accusations, will Trumpers still believe him?
  12. US politics: Donny, you're out of your element

    You just beat me to it. Although I was just gonna write, Oh God, now he wants more nuclear weapons... O God, oh God, oh God. Something about it being a good business, or whatever.
  13. US Politics: Deep State Solution

    Well, that explains it! (I mean, I love the contest, call it Stockholm syndrome, but the so-called music is a bit jarring.) I kind of hope they'll make a new, updated "Sweden Second" video, including Trump's mention on the rally, the Euroviision song contest, plus the moose incident.
  14. US Politics: Deep State Solution

    You have got to be kidding. Even if we ignore the big 12-year-sized elephant in the 20th ecntury room, while Europe does not have this tradition of recent slavery and the segregation laws that came afterwards, there is a long history of segregating/ persecuting/ even killing jews. Not to mention the very long tradition of discrimination/ segregation of women.
  15. US Politics: Deep State Solution

    http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-39018096 Before Air Force One landed, President Trump came to the back of the aeroplane. He shook our hands and told us we'd see "a fantastic crowd of people" at the rally. He was warm and friendly to us on the aeroplane but things changed at the rally. Standing on stage, he said reporters "are part of the corrupt system". When he attacked the media, people in the audience screamed their support. I sat with other journalists in an area that was surrounded by metal gates. At times the animosity towards the media felt personal: my colleague was taking photos, and one man held his hand in front of her lens. As we left the hangar, another man said to us: "Goodbye, lying media."
