I'm the Iceberg

I’m horrified to learn that on many of the broadcasting channels around Europe, there were no translations of the lyrics at the bottom of the screen during the glorified drinking game known as Eurovision.

And that would explain why Greece’s gypsy punk song, which adeptly explains Greece’s economic policies, didn’t win first place

The whiskey is not to blame
The ice cubes were methylated
And our boat finally has wheels
Breathalyzer and traffic warden
Terror is not for us
The sea starts going downhill

Alcohol, alcohol, alcohol is free
Alcohol, alcohol, alcohol is free
Alcohol, alcohol, alcohol is free
Alcohol is free
Alcohol is free

Why Europe can’t shake its weakness for NazismLike vermin in a time of pestilence, neo-Nazi groups appear to be enjoying a resurgence in a Europe plagued by increasing financial chaos and uncertainty. As Europe celebrated the 67th anniversary of V.E. Day and the defeat of Hitler’s Nazis last week, it also reeled in disbelief as an angry Greek electorate gave 7% of their votes to the neo-Nazi, anti-immigrant Golden Dawn party.Boasting an “army of brave boys in black,” who strut the streets of rundown Greek neighbourhoods, flicking off Hitler-esque salutes and staging anti-immigration rallies around a swastika-like flag that is based on an ancient Greek decorative border called a meandros, Golden Dawn became the first far-right party to enter the Greek parliament since the collapse of a military dictatorship in 1974.In an echo of Europe’s tortured past, Nazism, with its association with the Holocaust and horrors of the Second World War, not only survives, but in some instances is thriving.

Even fucking Germany with its restrictive post-war constitution is going through a worrying resurgence of Neo-Nazism right now.
Fuck this gay Earth.
