Gates of Vienna News Feed 8/31/2012

Gates of Vienna News Feed 8/31/2012In a speech today, Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke strongly emphasized his intention to keep stimulating the American economy through the Fed’s monetary policy. The stock market responded tepidly to his words, and the spot price of silver rose sharply after Mr. Bernanke spoke.

In other news, a Swiss magazine published an article that discouraged its readers from visiting Ireland, saying that 70% of Irish people have scarcely a tooth in their heads, thanks to inbreeding.

I don't know whether to laugh or cry in regards to the article about German Jews demanding the Muzzies stop their anti-semitic attacks.

In some ways it's a WTF(excuse my French)moment of shock. Look the Jews by now ought to understand that the Muslims hate them and want them dead because of Koranic injunctions(along with apostates, gays, emo's, pagans, atheists, feminists, etc).

The thing is, the rise of anti-semitism correlates to the rising population of Muslims. No one in Europe outside Wilders or a handful of English folk will admit this though. The German government has looked the other way and punishes those that dare speak out. They don't care even though the threat grows more ominous every year. How long before Germany is faced with the riots and no go zones France has. Two or three years?
