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.”
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.
