The stupidity of Racists

Posted by Henric C. Jensen on March 26, 2008


Patrick Owomoyela

BERLIN, Germany (AP) — The head of Germany’s top far-right party was charged with incitement and defamation Tuesday for allegedly publishing a pamphlet before the 2006 soccer World Cup that prosecutors said called into question whether nonwhite players should be on the national team.[…]

The flyers showed the traditional white German jersey with the No. 25, which was worn at the time by black defender Patrick Owomoyela. They read: “White, not just a jersey color! For a real NATIONAL team!”

Owomoyela, who has a German mother and a Nigerian father, plays for Werder Bremen but is no longer a member of the German national squad.

The NPD called the charges “absurd” and “political” in a statement released on its Web site.

“The German justice authorities are ever more zealous when it comes to pursuing and persecuting the national opposition,” the statement read.

Beier insisted in a telephone interview with The Associated Press that the use of No. 25 was “pure chance” and insisted the quality of the printing was unclear, meaning it could be interpreted as a 26 or even a 23.

“Everyone can see their own favorite number in it,” Beier said.

How stupid can you be? With a defense line like THAT, you deserve to be indicted and prosecuted, and hopefully convicted and sent to jail.

Go Germany!

ALL is not Crap in China

Panda with Cub

(CNN) — Animal handlers in China have developed a “sexercise” program to try to encourage extinction-threatened pandas to overcome their notoriously low sex drives.

Featuring hip and pelvic-strengthening “dances” for male pandas, the program also sees inexperienced pandas watching their older relatives make love to learn a few moves.

The handlers hope to encourage mating among the sex-shy-but-endangered animals, the Chinese state media reported Tuesday. They work at the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding in the southwestern Sichuan province, the China Daily said.

Keepers teach male pandas a dance-like routine to strengthen the pelvic and hip area — it also boosts the animal’s stamina, the paper said.

In the wild, pandas are solitary animals, coming together only in the spring to mate.

Keepers place a male panda in a female’s den when she’s not there and vice versa. This allows them to smell each other’s odors. And if the pandas get randy at the same time, keepers bring them together, the report said.

“We arrange love-making between two excellent pandas in front of inexperienced pandas, which have never had sex. It does work,” the reserve’s deputy chief, Fei Lisong, told the newspaper.

The unusual measures are aimed at increasing the population of captive giant pandas. They have famously low sexual desires — and that threatens their future.

Fewer than 1,600 giant pandas survive in the wild, along the edge of the Tibetan plateau in China, according to the .

Finally some good news from China. We need that, my friends, we really do.

While we work hard to make the Chinese Government see sense, let’s also celebrate that which is GOOD about China – if it had not been for the dedicated work by Chinese panda handlers and animal preservists, there would be no Great Pandas left in the world. Much is BAD in China, but this is GOOD. Please keep that in mind.
