Drengestreger

Det danske samfund ser med stor alvor på nedværdigende behandling af enhver, der kommer i myndighedernes klør.

Og det skulle bare mangle andet. Derfor har vi også haft endeløse diskussioner, undersøgelser, retssager, DR-finansierede dokumentarfilm, parlamentariske stormløb etc. i anledning af påståede mishandlinger af danske fanger i Irak og Afghanistan.

Et sted er der blevet talt hårdt til tilbageholdte, der har fået at vide, at deres penis var for lille, er blevet nægtet drinks og har måttet sidde ubekvemt. Et andet sted har danskere overgivet tilfangetagne til amerikanerne, som har underkastet dem en klipning og så vidt Groft sagt forstår holdt dem vågne længe efter deres sengetid samt tilføjet dem diverse knubs.

Men hvad takserer vi i grunden den slags til efter dansk retspraksis? Det får vi et vist indblik i ved at studere den dom, som retten i Hillerød onsdag afsagde over en 18-årig mand fra Lejre. Han fik 3 måneders fængsel for at have maltrakteret en evnesvag kvinde. I løbet af nogle timer ydmygede han hende på forskellig vis, mens en kammerat filmede optrinene. Hun blev beskudt med en hardballpistol, fik tværet flødeboller ud i håret, oversprøjtet med glasrens, ligesom hun blev lokket til at drikke sodavand, som den dømte havde tisset i.

Det skal tilføjes, at dommen på 3 måneder inkluderede en tidligere betinget voldsdom. I lyset af denne domspraksis må man antage, at de irakiske og afghanske overgreb, der nu i årevis har sat nationen på anden ende, må henregnes til kategorien drengestreger.

Hvor meget rejser de på DR?

En læser af Biased BBC har spurgt det meget politisk korrekte BBC om dets medarbejderes rejsevaner. Det overraskende svar kommer her:

BBC staff travel 125 million miles a year by air

Blimey, that’s a lot. 30 million miles further than the Sun. Commenter J.G. writes :  Fed up as I was with the constant bleating about man-made global warming we get on the BBC, I thought I would find out just what they are doing to help the planet. So I put in a FOI request asking about the air miles the BBC fly, the carbon that this produces, and how the BBC offsets this. Get ready for some amazing numbers (all relate to the last reporting year):

Total UK domestic flights: 17 million miles

Total European flights: 14 million miles Other flights: 94 million miles

Total air miles: 125 million

Total cost: £15,147,000

TOTAL CO2 EMISSIONS: 25,676,000 Kgs

TOTAL CO2 OFFSET: 0 kgs. Yes, 0 Kg.

The FOI document is here.

Hvor meget rejser de på DR og andre medier, der har så travlt med at give alle os andre så dårlig samvittighed – for eksempel angående ferierejser etc.? 125 millioner miles per år svarer til 200 millioner kilometer om året eller cirka 4444 gange rundt om jorden. Det kunne være morsomt, om nogen skrev til DR og udbad sig et svar, for eksempel med reference til BBC.

The 4,000-square-foot house is a model of environmental rectitude.

Geothermal heat pumps located in a central closet circulate water through pipes buried 300 feet deep in the ground where the temperature is a constant 67 degrees; the water heats the house in the winter and cools it in the summer. Systems such as the one in this “eco-friendly” dwelling use about 25% of the electricity that traditional heating and cooling systems utilize.

A 25,000-gallon underground cistern collects rainwater gathered from roof runs; wastewater from sinks, toilets and showers goes into underground purifying tanks and is also funneled into the cistern. The water from the cistern is used to irrigate the landscaping surrounding the four-bedroom home. Plants and flowers native to the high prairie area blend the structure into the surrounding ecosystem.

No, this is not the home of some eccentrically wealthy eco-freak trying to shame his fellow citizens into following the pristineness of his self-righteous example. And no, it is not the wilderness retreat of the Sierra Club or the Natural Resources Defense Council, a haven where tree-huggers plot political strategy.

This is President George W. Bush’s “Texas White House” outside the small town of Crawford.

Al Gore’s elektricitetsforbrug er blevet dissekeret fornylig

Men den brave miljøforkæmpers forbrug af naturgas blev kun nævnt i forbifarten.

“What’s maybe even more interesting is the gas bill, reported to average $1,080 a month over the last year (none of these figures, first released by a Tennessee free-market think tank, have been disputed).

Nobody else seems to have done so, so it’s interesting to see what that translates into in terms of emissions.

We learn from the US Department of Energy that Tennessee residential gas prices were around $13.50 per thousand cubic feet last year. So $1,080 would buy about 80,000 cubic feet. That dollar amount is an average monthly figure, so that would account for 960,000 cubic feet over the course of the year.

One cubic metre equals 35.29 cubic feet, so that translates to 27,200 cubic metres.

One cubic metre of natural gas emits 1.891 kg of CO2 (see page 13), so this represents a total of 27,200*1.891 = 51435.2 kg (51.4 tonnes) of CO2 emission.

By striking coincidence, this is within a whisker of total CO2 emissions per average US household – including household operations, automotive uses, and “indirect emissions” – which amount to about 118,000 pounds (53,636 kg).

The point bears repeating. Mr. Gore’s natural gas-based emissions alone account for as much warming as the total due to electricity, heating, transport and “indirect” factors of an average American household.

But that’s OK, isn’t it? After all, the Gore family purchases carbon offsets – “a concept the right-wing fails to understand“.”

Offentliggørelse af Muhammed-tegning sætter Cambridge-universitet i chok.

En 19-årig Cambridge-studerende har udløst den største skandale i årtier på det ærværdige gamle britiske universitet.

I Clare Colleges ugeblad Clareificatio optrykte den 19-årige som gæste-redaktør en af Morgenavisen Jyllands-Postens Muhammed-karikaturer. Nummeret var viet til religiøs satire.

‘Cambridge i shock. Den største skandale i årtier’. Der må sandelig være kedeligt på Cambridge.

Voldtægtsepidemien breder sig til Frankrig

In the second such case tried in France in as many weeks, seven men appeared in a Versailles court yesterday accused of repeatedly gang-raping a 15-year-old girl over a period of eight weeks five years ago.

Amid growing public concern, lawyers and social workers have called for an urgent judicial crackdown on a phenomenon said to represent 10-20% of all serious cases in French juvenile courts.

Læg mærke til betegnelsen ‘french youth’. Det er den samme metode medierne bruger i alle europæiske lande, til at skjule, at det drejer sig om indvandrerbander. I Frankrig fra Nordafrika.

Og hvordan reagerer de politisk korrekte så på de søde små? Jo på samme måde som for eksempel i Norge:

 But French psychologists say heavier sentencing may not be the answer. They say preventive education is needed because violent sexuality becomes the only way in which youths in disadvantaged areas can attain social status.

Så ved vi det. Hvide piger må finde sig i voldtægt, så indvandrerne kan stige i social status.
