Skyman alerted me to the following piece of news:
poems about laces, eintritt verboten (be.me.fi video), define: para aesthetics
No wait, that was just what was in my ctrl-c memory. I mean: he alerted me to the following piece of news:
Den åländske lagtingsledamoten Mikael Igge Holmberg har polisanmälts för ett kränkande omdöme om prinsessan Estelle. Den anonyme anmälaren reagerade på att politikern i en debatt på Facebook kallade prinsessans födelse för en “parasits födelse”. Holmberg har senare sagt att barnet i sig är oskyldigt, men att hon “som kron-whatever fortfarande är en symbol för en familj som parasiterar på samhället”. Efter det har han lämnat en skriftlig ursäkt.
Let me translate that into Imperial for you (very freely):
“Politician charged with princess-taunting
A complaint has been filed with the police regarding a defaming statement about the princess Estelle made by the member of the Åland Parliament Mikael Igge Holmberg. The anonymous filer of the complaint reacted to a debate on Facebook where the politician called the birth of the princess “the birth of a parasite”. Holmberg has later said that the child itself is innocent, but that she “as crown-whatever still is a symbol for a family that parasitize on society.” He has since filed a written apology”
That is, a politician in another country has the courage to publicly state what everybody already knows, and he feels pressed to write an apology for it when some anonymous jackass who doesn’t understand what “freedom of opinion” or “freedom of expression” means reports him to the police. Now, let’s see, who apart from royalists are against freedom of opinion and freedom of expression? Why, I think I provided a list of them in my last post!
This appears to be the full quote of what he said:
(“And this at the same time as an entire hospital is being prepared for the birth of parasite. How the heck can a modern country still have an anachronistic monarchy?”)
A gem! And Igge Holmberg is a beauty! A beard you could hide a gorse bush in!
Googling on Igge Holmberg, we also find royalist absurdities such as this, where a vacuous twit presumably called “Eva” asks Igge:
“Min fråga till dig “Igge” är: Vad försörjer du dig på?
Är det inte lite parasitärt det?
Jag menar alltså: du lever på de pengar som dina landsmän tjänar in och betalar in i skatt. Lite som en parasit, alltså?”
(“My question to you “Igge” is: What do you earn a living on? Oh, tax money?! Isn’t that a bit parasitic? I mean: you live on the money your fellow countrymen earn and pay as taxes. A bit like a parasite, that is?”)
And then goes on to point out that Igge is a social democrat.
What is wrong with Eva’s post? Well, let me put it this way: the next time I say that I believe it is wrong to let seven-year-olds have their own homepages, this may be used as a very good example.
Do elected politicians earn a living from tax money? Yes.
Do non-elected kings and princesses earn a living from tax money? Yes.
Does this in any way mean that the two sets of people are comparable? NO, and you, Eva, are twit and a treeweasel for even trying to suggest that.
The Royal Familitis that infests this and several other countries are parasites, because we can’t get rid of them when they misbehave, they are not obliged to take any responsibility for their actions, they are immune to prosecution, and they NEVER FUCKING GO AWAY! This is not the same as Igge Holmberg and the rest of the Social Democrats in Sweden and on Åland, who will simply fade away if no one votes for them. NO ONE EVER VOTED for the diminutively brained pox-bearer that is the King of Sweden. NO ONE. He was just squirted out of a vagina one day and from that day on, he didn’t have to do anything and could still get to live in castles and drive fast cars and fuck prostitutes in fast cars all day long and have the audacity to claim on TV that people can’t expect to just sit on there asses and money and food will be handed to them on a plate.
AND HE WILL NEVER GO AWAY. Well, he will die one day — and oh what a glorious day that will be; I cannot wait for him to buried so that I may get a chance to spit on his grave — but other than that, even if he were to resign in favour of the dropped-at-birth daughter of his, or even in favour of the rat-faced ulcer that has been displayed in newspapers recently — even if he did that, we would still have to pay for his pointless upkeep with tax money, because he used to be the king and that somehow means that he should be allowed to go on stealing from single mothers, the unemployed, the terminally sick, and refugees from war zones.
Because we must never forget that that is what this puss-faced frogking of ours is doing. He and his putrescent clan of inbred clowns have had the audacity to ask for increased allowances at a time when the liberal-fascist government we live under have been having a destroy-wellfare-society-bonanza for the already rich and the aspiring psychopaths at McDonalds, Carema, and other societal cancers. While society as a whole has had to cope with everything getting progressively worse — which is what the conservatives mean when they use the word “progress” — the court has the fairyland idea that it is the tax payers’ responsibility to pay for his daughter’s wedding to a gym owner.
Somewhere this idiocy has to stop. And now, the new-hatched frogspawn Estelle is the daughter of a gym owner and the descendant of a book keeper. Hopefully, this will dispel any remnant illusions of her having any form of “royal blood”, and we can dispense with this charade once and for all, or we’ll just have to shoot the lot of them and end it the quick and dirty way.
Meanwhile, I would like to say to Eva and the anonymous prick who reported Igge Holmberg: if you so want to live under a dictatorship that has a sea of minions to silence it critics by reporting them to the police, here is a travel agency that specializes in trips to North Korea. I am sure they can arrange a one-way ticket for you.
