Last Gasp Europe Just Before Everything Went Smash [Bumped]

Too bad about Europe. It had nice ideals.

Great. Now I'm crying. On my lunch break. At work. I hate having to explain these things. Damn.

Music is an insult to Allah. Women performing in public is an insult to Allah. Families gathering in the public square with no man to own them is an insult to Allah. The buildings, put up by Christians, are an insult to Allah. Kill them all and raze the square. Erect some tents, a slave market, and install open sewers and a hand-operated water pump. Allah will be pleased to listen to the lamentations and the whistling of the whips!

Alas! The Great Chastisement is well underway.

Bunch of privileged racists. How dare them gloat like that.

Thank you for posting this. A nice coda to my day.

And all being destroyed because of the endless wars of the neocon filth

Oh, Bugger off Bill Jones!

Start with the destruction of society by Nato, in the old Yugoslavia in the 1998's/9's, the floods of refugees to the Nordic States: read some of their fiction from 5 years before and five years after. Try Nesbo.
Look at Libya, a country destroyed by neocon filth, Iraq, a country destroyed by neocon filth, Yemen a country destroyed by neocon filth and their latest effort Syria.

Tens of millions fleeing the wars of the neocon filth and as a result destroying the finest culture the world has yet seen.
Go fuck yourself, Kinch.

My white privilege thanks you.

Bill Jones: Take your anti-Semitic innuendos elsewhere.

Anyone who would voluntarily read Scandinavian detective stories is already a sick miserable depraved leftist soul and merely looking to wallow in their depravity.

Ode to JOY. Doubt you'd know what joy was if it bit you on the ass. Begone!

Posted by: Kinch at February 17, 2016 1:55 AM

What Jewel said....but at least I'm in the privacy of my own home and don't have to try to explain the tears of joy. It is, however, almost a video of a 'lost time' there and that makes me sad rather than joyful.

Schiller/Beethoven "Ode to Joy." One of the supreme achievements of the Germans.

Posted by: bob sykes at February 17, 2016 11:29 AM

The last movement of Beethoven's last and final symphony. He was stone deaf and could here it only in his mind.

Posted by: Denny at February 17, 2016 12:52 PM

HEAR it.

Then the "refugee" in the crowd detonated his suicide vest, blowing them all to smithereens.

What I see is this: some not so European families enjoying the music with their children, in addition to the natives enjoying it as well. It would perhaps be overly optimistic to hope that the better elements of European culture might rub off on some of the newcomers the way it has the East Asians

Consider that a certain dictator(could have)had bonfires by burning only the confiscated violins of his victims. Consider what was lost to the world by that evil Holocaust.
The current invaders have made it clear they will do worse, as they include not only Jews, but Christians, Buddhists, and every other religious person who will not bow to their demand.
The people of Europe who do care for their progeny have protested the Islamics New Years muggings, but they cannot go home and celebrate their boldness. They must over and over and over come to the town square and boldly celebrate those things that make them Civilized. The barbarians must be defeated if there is to be a future for Europe. There is no assimilation of those who come to lie and destroy that with which they do not agree, who lie without remorse about the simplest of things, and have no remorse about murder, most foul.
Somehow they missed the #5 on the Top Ten:
Thou shalt not kill(murder).
and a few more:
Honor thy Father and thy Mother
Thou shalt not covet

I enjoyed the music. I am expecting the worst.

Home alone after work, clicked on it and wow. Some tears.

Posted by: tripletap at February 18, 2016 3:59 PM

Cry, the beloved country ...
All we yearned for was for all to be able to express their peaceful abilities, to add to the joy of the world.
To fulfill our yearnings we will have to earn their fulfillment -- the old-fashioned way.
We must again water the tree of Liberty, the hard way.

Posted by: Howard Nelson at February 18, 2016 5:42 PM

I love you all, well mostly. I will miss you. We will be next. Thanks, BHO; lovely fellow that one.

I would add that the barbarians at the gate, literally, have and will destroy that which they do not appreciate, or consider contrary to their beliefs.
To my mind, it is much easier to destroy than to build. A madman caused the destruction of so much of Europe, so many deaths, and it appears that his henchmen(they loved him back in the 1940's) will have another go.
I hope the men that protested the New Years gropes and rapes rally rally rally rally and do something, push their governing goose to throw off her/his PC rose tinted glasses, and face reality. Else there is but destruction.

I want to remind Bill Jones that you can't be smart and be an anti-Semite. Anti-Semitism is a moral and mental disease that rots the brain. Notice how Jones keeps saying 'neocon this' and 'neocon that' as if he is really saying something? The phrase becomes a reocurring mental tick that torments Jones and will eventually push him into insanity if he is not already there...
