Right under our noses.

I may have to learn how to use the FNC after all.


Fjordman from Norway who, in the absence of decent Swedish bloggers (have they been silenced already) covers Sweden for us, has an interesting story on tow Swedish svhoolgirls who were sent home for wearing sweaters with the Swedish flag.

The photo shows the girls in question, Linda Larsson and Charlotte Bertelsen. In case you understand Swedish (fat chance), here is the story as it appeared in a Swedish newspaper.

Now, Fjordman, who has become somebody on Scandinavian blogger forums (hell, in the blogosphere for my part) cites a poster, a woman in Sweden, commenting on the affair. Just scroll down the discussion Is Swedish Democracy Collapsing? till you come across the post by the poster "perpetrator" (what's in a name) of Friday May 20, 9.20am:

it seems you know extremely little of the political climate in sweden. the swedish flag has become a nazi symbol. ordinary people don't WEAR patches with the swedish flag -- only nazis do. thus, if you as an immigrant see a person wearing one, the natural response is to feel unsafe. i doubt these girls were sent home from school ONLY because of the patch, a very good guess is they were notorious nazichicks.

Fjordman again:

So, wearing a sweater with a tiny flag from your own nation makes you a "notorious nazichick". Welcome to a parallel universe.

Oh boy. If there are intellectuals and reformers busy on defining a moderate version of Islam, they better had it coming quick. Since you are in the business of scrolling down, you may want to continue here. Sometimes I get the feeling it's five (hours) past twelve.

I'm not making this up:

...doctors are calling for a ban on long pointed kitchen knives to reduce deaths from stabbing.

What next, cheese graters?
This story is just unbelievable. The Chirac government is already planning to ignore what looks to be a "non" vote on the EU constitution.
Listen to this pathetic whining by Senator George Voinovich speaking about the upcoming vote on John Bolton becoming the official U.N. ball-kicker.

In my mind's eye I picture Zell Miller walking up, grabbing him by the lapels, telling him in no uncertain terms to get his shit together and act like a man and then giving him the mother of all headbutts - completely caving in Voinovich's face.

I found this over at Radio Blogger.

You might have better luck saving it to your hard drive and then playing it.

What in God's name is the matter with Senator John "Assclown" McCain? It wasn't enough that he fucked us with McCain-Feingold? And don't forget McCain-Kennedy.

Now he's come up with this.

There's nothing wrong with John McCain that a tub of bear lard and a couple of Karelian Bear Dogs couldn't solve...

I try and try, but I just can't seem to get myself to give a crap about the stem cell debate.

Thanks for listening.
Here is an interesting little piece by John O'Sullivan on why it would be a good thing for the U.S. if the EU constitution is shot down by voters.

At least some European countries allow their citizens to actually have a say in important political matters - it blows me away that France is actually one of them...

Hat tip to the Corner.

I love this bumper sticker:

I found it over at the Righty in a lefty state blog which has a story about their counter-protesting an anti-war march this past Armed Forces Day.
Call me a sick bastard but this is funny.

I want to see the video.
"Poll after poll predicts that the French will reject the constitutional treaty in a referendum on Sunday."

Hmmm. Maybe the French don't have their heads completely up their asses...
