From The Local in Germany:
Guttenberg slams ‘porn chic’ of female pop stars
Published: 14 Sep 10 11:43 CET
Stephanie zu Guttenberg, the wife of German Defence Minister Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg, on Tuesday attacked the sexed-up, porn-influenced style of pop stars such as Lady Gaga and Rihanna and their potentially harmful influence on children.
Should this great-great-granddaughter of Germany’s nineteenth century Chancellor Otto von Bismarck not rather worry about the racism in Germany of Thilo Sarrazin and the NPD nazis?
And, instead of accusing Rihanna and Lady Gaga of “porn”, shouldn’t Ms Stephanie zu Guttenberg rather attack the real obscene porn: the images of the Afghan civilians, killed or hurt forever, by the occupying German army, for which her husband is responsible?

Germany in the dock over Kunduz airstrike
20 March 2013
Relatives of Afghans killed by an airstrike ordered by a German NATO officer in northern Afghanistan have taken Germany’s government to court.
The country has already paid more than 400,000 dollars – or 330,000 euros – in what it calls aid. The families from Kunduz want ten times that amount.
At the courthouse in Bonn, federal government lawyer Mark Zimmer said: “Of course I can understand these people because they suffered a terrible fate. At the same time, it is our task to fend off this claim because Bonn District Court is not the right place for it. There are rights based on international law and there are payments which have already been made, also by the German government.”
Karim Popal, a lawyer for the plaintiffs countered: “The goodwill aid payments of 5,000 dollars were handed out in a men’s assembly, so a lot of orphans and widows received nothing. A lot of strangers lined their pockets. Some of our clients received this aid, others did not.”
Scores of people were killed or maimed in September 2009 when two stolen fuel tankers were hit in the airstrike.
The planes were American, but the order came from a German commander.
Germany’s lower house of parliament said it was ‘one of the most serious incidents involving the German army since World War Two.’

“Born This Way” is Lady Gaga‘s minority and gay rights anthem, and as such, she’s decided not to partner with a chain retailer known for its donations to anti-gay rights political candidates: here.
Lady Gaga is once again following in the footsteps of pop icon Madonna — this time, she’s courting controversy from the Catholic Church over her latest single, “Judas”: here.
Multiple reports say that the Lebanese government impounded shipments of “Born This Way,” the already-platinum album due to its alleged insults to Christianity and its all around “bad taste”: here.
