I’m getting into this viral video chart thing (Ahmadinejad & Swedish vomit)

First encountered here (to where I keep going back as I cannot remember the link but have not yet admitted myself enjoying this, hence no bookmark so far), the Viral Video Chart is now providing a daily moment of diversion to me. Yet I’d really like to now what a Mensvärk is – period pain? People able of the Swedish tongue, please advise!

Yet the most disconcerting of all videos is this snippet from Ahmadinejad’s talk at Columbia university. “In Iran, we don’t have homosexuals like in your country. We don’t have that in our country. In Iran, we do not have this phenomenon, I don’t know who’s told you that we have it.”

*Gasp*

It’s shocking to have a situation where certain groups or individuals are forced underground because the regime has imposed capital punishment on THEIR BEING SO – and you find out that this regime REALLY thinks that these individuals do SIMPLY NOT EXIST: “We might have capital punishment for homosexuals, but nobody gets killed because we don’t gave any gays here.” Assuming that what they’ve created is reality. In the German Democratic (who were very good at creating situations and taking them for reality) they believed they didn’t have AIDS (of course they had, but the people with HIV/AIDS just weren’t acknowledged and thus also didn’t get the appropriate treatment).

The only relieving thing about this is the laughter in the audience, telling us that at least in the best we are past the stage where a majority thinks that homosexuality is an aberration. Maybe as an addendum to the Anti-Americanism post yesterday, one should mention that American universities are places where such talks as possible, exposing what kind of a clown Ahmadinejad really is.

  1. I’m with you on Ahmadinejad. Here’s how cynical the government of the united states is. Yesterday, while he was addressing the UN, senator Joe Lieberman who has a ripe spot in hell with his name on it, was trying to push a bill through the senate with language about Iran that mirrored the language used to go to war in Iraq.

    Here is the language from the amendment:

    (3) that it should be the policy of the United States to combat, contain, and roll back the violent activities and destabilizing influence inside Iraq of the Government of the Islamic Republic of Iran, its foreign facilitators such as Lebanese Hezbollah, and its indigenous Iraqi proxies;

    (4) to support the prudent and calibrated use of all instruments of United States national power in Iraq, including diplomatic, economic, intelligence, and military instruments, in support of the policy described in paragraph (3) with respect to the Government of the Islamic Republic of Iran and its proxies.

    Note the inclusion of “military instruments.” That’s authorization for war. The amendment has not to my knowledge passed.

    Note the way that the Bush administration and its congressional cronies take just indignation for Ahmadinejad and try to use it to mobilize for more war.

    The scary part is the way Lieberman tried to just sneak it on through. No debate. “Nothing to see here.” Again, shameful.

  2. Oops, Ahmadinejad was addressing the UN, not Joe Lieberman. His leash doesn’t go that far.

  3. This is so insane! I am really sorry, but how many countries do they wish to attack? This is increasingly reminding me of Nazi Germany – made the war ever bigger, expanded the front line ever more (which is probably good in hindsight, because that became their vulnerable spot – yet only at the sacrifice of millions of lives)

  4. It is despicable and scary!
