I suppose this can go here, went to a counterdemonstration to a PEGIDA (a German acronym for a German-based anti-Muslim group) here in town. There were about 30 nazis and about 200 cops protecting them from about 100/150 counterdemonstrators. Two leftists got arrested (one for throwing a smoke bomb and another because he didn't show ID, which I didn't have with me either, but nobody asked) and a police horse died of heart failure.

Video from local paper's website

Dead horse:

Oooh, this is a nice pic:



Slogan says Geen mens is illegaal (no human is illegal). I'm somewhere behind it. We were walking around a lot trying to outmanoeuvre the cops and making noise to drown them out (they had to abandon their PA at the square where they started out, so it was easy enough to drown them out). There were a lot of cops though, so we weren't very succesful at keeping close. But of course the cops let them yell their slogans at an asylum center.
This is still only part of the counter-demo, there are others in the street to the left.

Ironically a German bus (line-bus to just over the border) got stuck behind the police cordon too.

You know what pisses me off most though? They can't even just be fucking assholes, they have to be pathetic assholes who I actually pity. I got up close to some of them and the one who wasn't too stupid to not shit his pants was telling me 'you've got it wrong' whenI told them they were nazis. He was probably going to tell me how 'the elites' were fucking me over or something. 'The elites' are using you as a pawn, you not-as-stupid-as-your-braindead-friends-nazi. You follow like sheep inna wolf clothes.

This city brought to you by Amazon.
Cities are courting amazon to build a new headquarters with some interesting offers... and I thought stadium deals were shitty!
Sell your soul? Free shipping with prime!"Chicago has offered to let Amazon pocket $1.32 billion in income taxes paid by its own workers. This is truly perverse. Called a personal income-tax diversion, the workers must still pay the full taxes, but instead of the state getting the money to use for schools, roads or whatever, Amazon would get to keep it all instead."

"New Jersey remains the dollar king of the subsidy sweepstakes, having offered Amazon $7 billion to build in Newark."

"Boston has offered to set up an “Amazon Task Force” of city employees working on the company’s behalf. These would include a workforce coordinator, to help with Amazon’s employment needs, as well as a community- relations official to smooth over Amazon conflicts throughout Boston."

"Fresno promises to funnel 85 percent of all taxes and fees generated by Amazon into a special fund. That money would be overseen by a board, half made up of Amazon officers, half from the city."

Stupid supermarket rags. Harry is NEVER going to become king. First we have Elizabeth, squatting on the throne of Harold Godwinson. When and if she dies, (Long life and Health to her, [for our British readers]) Kronprinz Karl will become king. If the Chuckster does not predecease Elizabeth. (His real name is Karl von Battenberg und von Saxe-Coburg Gotha). Upon the death of King Karl, William will become king. After William, William's children.

The only way Harry can become king is to raise a rebellion and win.

Done this day, November 28, Anno domini 2017, being the 947th year of the English Peoples' Republic.

Prince William walks into the pub you’re in, you know the party’s winding down.

Prince Harry walks into the pub you’re in, you’re probably not going in to work tomorrow.
