Assorted Nr. 26: Mongolian Nazis, Kurdistan Kids Not Lovin Turkey, Fidel Eternal, Leipzig Bombing, Bye Bye Oire Szene, A Day at the Train Station

*Mongolian Nazis.
Yes indeed. And no, this is not posted because of the easy infantile and rather out of place jokes many of you fools are probably tempted to make. Crazy shit though…their own bar, and especially the fetish like attire. My favorite is the guy with the knee high boots!

You can read the Guardian article about them here and there is also a pciture gallery.

*The Kurdish kids „still not lovin“ Turkey.
Which is nice and good, but ummmm….arent these kids a bit too young for this? I really think under 13 or 14 years old is kind of pushing it, and some of these look like they are about 8.

*Oire Szene says goodbye. :-(

*Fidel Castro tells it like it is!
Seeing as how he has again (for what is apparently the 147th time) escaped death and now at almost 90 he seems to be getting younger every day again, I am really truly objectively convinced that the man is immortal. Who? Why Fidel Castro of course! And if immortality wasnt enough, he again shines through his words. A few weeks ago he was apologizing and exercising self-criticism for the shortcomings of the revolution in dealing with discrimination against homosexuals. Now, he is telling it to Iran regarding Judaism, Israel, and the Holocaust. And I quote from this article very much worth reading…
He said the Iranian government should understand the consequences of theological anti-Semitism. „This went on for maybe two thousand years,“ he said. „I don‘t think anyone has been slandered more than the Jews. I would say much more than the Muslims. They have been slandered much more than the Muslims because they are blamed and slandered for everything. No one blames the Muslims for anything.“ The Iranian government should understand that the Jews „were expelled from their land, persecuted and mistreated all over the world, as the ones who killed God. In my judgment here’s what happened to them: Reverse selection. What’s reverse selection? Over 2,000 years they were subjected to terrible persecution and then to the pogroms. One might have assumed that they would have disappeared; I think their culture and religion kept them together as a nation.“ He continued: „The Jews have lived an existence that is much harder than ours. There is nothing that compares to the Holocaust.“ I asked him if he would tell Ahmadinejad what he was telling me. „I am saying this so you can communicate it,“ he answered.

Also good, when asked if he now, in his old age, believes in God he answers „Sorry, I‘m still a dialectical materialist.“

Now all we need is for Fidel to give a similar lecture to Chavez and well really be getting somewhere! :-)

*Leipzig Bombing!
Nice! Bonus points for these people!


*Best Goalie Celebration Ever
Very very funny. Especially him celebrating while its going on…

*Finally, something like a journal entry. Experiences of a saturday morning at the local train station…
Its amazing how much you can experience in one Saturday morning and afternoon at the local train station. Why on earth would one spend half a day at the train station you wonder? To do the mandatory first aid course to get a German license of course! Yes, only 7 years later and Im finally going through with it! A random mix of thoughts, impressions, and incidents of the day…

-Im maybe a bit oversensitive with my recent (and probably extremely short lived) revival of sober living, but I couldnt help noticing how damned addicted the kids are. Every single break there was a large gang of them desperately smoking as if they had been lacking oxygen for two hours. Im tempted to say pathetic and pass disgusted judgement, but if they are addicted to cigarettes/alcohol/drugs, but Im addicted to other things…am I really any better? Probably not…

-Fashion bonus points go to the young lady in front of me brave enough to show up in COMPLETE tracksuit/jogging outfit. Not only that…matching jogging outfit. Those of us in the Fire and Flames world, while big fans of jogging pants and jackets, are strict adherents to the rule of „one or the other,“ meaning if you are wearing jeans a track jacket is OK, and if you are wearing a real jacket then jogging pants are OK…but never both together (except for the occasional trip to the kiosk).

-Minus points on the other hand to the young kid next to me in full „casual“ hooligan attire. Stone Island jacket, Lacoste shoes, plaid cap, and of course the hipbag across the chest in „szene typische“ style. It was too much too young.

-Speaking of „hooligans,“ I also had the displeasure of having enough time to more closely study some German football fans, in the form of Hannover 96 fans. The stupidity, the bad music, the idiotic outfits, the growling chants…Im definitely not a fan of this football culture.

-I think Sarazzin is right on one point. There is indeed such a thing as the integration resistant migrant. I know…as I realize further and further that I am one. 7 years in Germany, and the relationship of hatred towards my surroundings does nothing but grow. And that although I am an experienced migrant, having lived several year periods in several countries spread over three continents. In every case there was the immediate affinity to the anarchist/autonome scene, but there was always still some cultural „common points“ with „normal“ people. Im just not really finding them here to be honest.

-“Displeasure“ is probably what the three Nazis I had the fortune of encountering at the „bahnhofsvorplatz“ experienced. One of them was even so stupid as to be sporting a black/red/white flag as well as „reichkriegsfahne“ on his backpack. This was too much for my tolerance, so despite my injured status (cast on foot, so wearing flip flops!) I decided to exercise my civic duty and show some „zivilcourage,“ just like the cops taught us last week.
A friendly smile, a bit of calm „aufklärung“ about how concerned I was for their safety since Göttingen is such a dangerous den of anti-patriotic left-wing extremists and if you hang around for too long god knows what atrocities might befall you. If I was a young and pretty dumb looking Nazi, I would still probably intelligent enough to leave quickly. I wished them a good day, and told me if they needed me for anything I would be sitting on the bench a few meters away. Two minutes later, they were gone. It is of course entirely possible that they indeed had a train to catch, but still…

-You might think that with this many distractions I might not have learned much of anything…but you would be wrong. And although I did much whining and complaining beforehand, I have to admit that I did indeed learn useful stuff. That said, seeing how „learning resistant“ a lot of the other people in the class were (several couldnt even repeat the information that was given to them *seconds* before) I wonder how effective this really is. In any case, at least its better than the Argentina license standards, where in more than one region or neighborhood the license process consists of „are you blind? No, good. Got 150 pesos? Yes, ok…heres your license.“
