Gates of Vienna News Feed 11/5/2010

Gates of Vienna News Feed 11/5/2010The German government is very unhappy with the Federal Reserve’s decision to buy up an additional $600 billion in U.S. Treasury bonds. Finance Minister Wolfgang Schäuble says the Fed won’t be able to solve America’s financial problems in this manner. The move is seen as detrimental to the Euro countries because it causes the value of the dollar to drop, and thus gives American exports an advantage.

In other news, despite playing a major role in the policies that just led to her party’s drubbing at the polls, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has announced that she will have a go at maintaining her leadership of the Democrats when they become a minority in the House in January.

  1. Quote:
    It was the new interpretive work of the Islamic feminists that produced the idea of full gender equality within the context of the family—a gender equality that accounted for gender difference—as in keeping with Islam.
    end quote.

    As usual, Islam arrives late and claims an inventiveness and intelligence the community does not have.
    The conflict between “equality as sameness” versus “equality as acceptance” was advanced by Carol Tavris in 1987 in The Mismeasure of Woman.
    I don’t believe that Muslims will ever accept anything without a deal with the devil– rape, rape and more rape.

  2. Quote:
    The Party of Swedes is typically described as a neo-Nazi party and its sees “the current chaos” as a result of democracy. It wants to replace democracy with another governmental system.
    end quote.

    You never use rhetoric like “neo-Nazi” unless you have proof that the group in question has Nazi characteristics:
    1. racialist view of civilization
    2. anti-semitism
    3. gangster tactics
    4. intimidation of opposition
    This article was written by someone who knows nothing of Nazism, German history, European history or perhaps, even Swedish history. The understanding behind the article is two inches wide and one micron deep.
    Perhaps a non-westerner wrote it?

  3. Quote:
    The radical cleric argued that such a move would render him ‘stateless’ as he had already been stripped of his Egyptian citizenship.
    end quote.

    The decision to strip a person’s citizenship is a political one.
    It has nothing to do with human rights, but with political rights.
    The privilege of doing so should belong to the nation itself.
    If a man is stateless, rest assured, he was very active in making himself so.
