Donald Trump and women, parody song

This 20 October 2016 satiric music video from Britain about Donald Trump and women is called Madonald – “I Like a Virgin“.

It is a parody of the song ‘Like a virgin’, by Madonna.

The lyrics are:

20 October 2016

I made it through the primaries with record numbers
I just don’t know how to lose, ‘cause I’m a winner
Won’t be beat, ‘cause I’m neat
I’m a star, I’m a real big star
So I had a feel, yeah I had a feel
A fun little fondle

Of a virgin, groped for the very first time
I like a virgin, put a roofie in her wine

Gonna have my way with you, girl
I’m allowed ‘cause I’m a star
And if you ever try to sue
I’ll say I’ve never heard of you

You’re so fine, and you’re mine
I’ll come on strong ‘cause I’m feeling bold
I’ve got nice, big hands
I’ve got larger than average-sized hands
And they’re ready for a touch

Of a virgin, groped for the very first time
I like a virgin, put a roofie in her wine
Like a vermin stepping across the line
I like a virgin, put a roofie in her wine

People power forces neonazis to cancel gig

Tuesday 18th October 2016

ANTI-RACIST campaigners claimed victory yesterday after a neonazi concert due to be held in Scotland later this month was cancelled.

US white power band Bound for Glory were booked to perform in Falkirk this Saturday but cancelled the gig due to fears that anti-racist activists would target the event.

The cancellation was announced on Sunday by organiser Vicky Pearson, who said the concert had to be called off due to a combination of adverse media attention, the likelihood that the US band members would be refused entry into Britain and fears that the venue would pull out.

A spokesman for anti-racist and anti-fascist campaign group Hope not Hate said: “While obviously we will remain vigilant to ensure that she [Ms Pearson] is true to her word, we can celebrate a huge victory for people power.”

Labour MSP Neil Findlay, who also pushed for the gig’s cancellation said: “This is really good news — groups like this have no other purpose than to spread division and hate.

“We must always to be vigilant to ensure they don’t play in any of our communities.”

More than 1,700 people contacted their MPs and MSPs over the weekend expressing their disgust at the event.

However, more than 500 tickets had been sold for what was believed to be the biggest-ever white supremacist gig in Scotland.

Scotland’s Cabinet Secretary for Justice Michael Matheson had pledged to write to Westminister Home Secretary Amber Rudd recommending that she refuse the entry of the band to Britain.

Mr Matheson said: “There is no place for hatred of this kind in Scotland.”

“I myself was slapped in the face by him (Georg Ratzinger)

priest, director of the Regensburger Domspatzen children’s choir (which he made perform, eg, at the NATO summit in Germany in 1982), and elder brother of Joseph Ratzinger, who became Pope Benedict XVI

, and it was particularly painful when he pulled me up here by my sideburns, that was very mean. Although I was not a bad singer. But when it was about the music, he was a full-blooded musician, he really was quick-tempered and forgot about everything.”

“The responsible persons in Regensburg knew that there was something wrong. They did not act and therefore I was quite surprised, at the beginning of this week, that (Johann) Meier was still there in 1991 and that a witness had said that nothing had changed and Meier was still beating students in 1991.”

Two alleged victims of a child abuse scandal connected to the Catholic church in Germany came forward on Thursday, including a former member of an all-boys choir led by the pope’s brother.

Germany’s top education representative sharply criticised the church on Thursday for failing to report cases of physical and sexual abuse in a timely fashion.

The uproar came a day before Germany’s highest bishop was to meet Pope Benedict XVI in Rome.

At least 170 former students from Catholic schools in Germany have come forward with claims of sexual abuse recently and others have spoken of physical abuse.

Wolfgang Blaschka, a 52-year-old graphic designer, said that corporal punishment was the rule, not the exception, when he was a student at the Etterzhausen school just outside Regensburg.

“One day I found myself hanging in the air by my hair – my whole bodyweight – in the claw of this Principal Meier,” he said, referring to then-director Johann Meier.

He alleged that Ratzinger had hit him too.

The scandal has clearly shaken the Vatican.

One hundred new reports of abuse in German choir

Today, 17:46

A German bishop who does research on abuse and violence at the German Catholic boys choir Regensburger Domspatzen, has now received reports from 422 people. These are over a hundred more than earlier this year, the bishop of Regensburg has said. 65 of the 422 reports concern sexual violence.

Since last year research has been done about abuses at the Bavarian choir in the period 1945 to 1992. The sexual violence ranged from fondling to rape. Boys also said they were beaten until bloody with a stick, key ring or seal ring. If a child had wet the bed, then he was banned from drinking anything.

End of next year a committee will decide on compensation. Victims can look forward to financial compensation of between 5,000 and 20,000 euros and are offered therapeutic help. There will also be an investigation into the causes of the abuse at the choir.


The perpetrators of abuse are now deceased. Georg Ratzinger [still alive], the older brother of former Pope Benedict, was between 1964 and 1994 the leader of the choir. The lawyer of several victims thinks he knew about the abuse. Ratzinger is in denial about that.

The Regensburger Domspatzen is the choir of the cathedral of Regensburg. The choir is more than a thousand years old.

This 2015 video is a German documentary about the abuse scandal in the Regensburger Domspatzen children’s choir.

Bob Dylan wins Nobel Prize In Literature

2016 Nobel Prize In Literature Awarded To Bob Dylan

10/13/2016 07:02 am ET

STOCKHOLM, Oct 13 – Bob Dylan, regarded as the voice of a generation for his influential songs from the 1960s onwards, has won the Nobel Prize for Literature in a surprise decision that made him the only singer-songwriter to win the award.

The 75-year-old Dylan – who won the prize for “having created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition” – now finds himself in the company of Winston Churchill, Thomas Mann and Rudyard Kipling as Nobel laureates.

The announcement was met with gasps in Stockholm’s stately Royal Academy hall, followed – unusually – by some laughter.

Dylan’s songs, such as “Blowin’ in the Wind,” “The Times They Are a-Changin’,” “Subterranean Homesick Blues” and “Like a Rolling Stone” captured a spirit of rebellion, dissent and independence.

More than 50 years on, Dylan is still writing songs and is often on tour, performing his dense poetic lyrics, sung in a sometimes rasping voice that has been ridiculed by detractors.

Some lyrics have resonated for decades.

“Blowin’ in the Wind,” written in 1962, was considered one of the most eloquent folk songs of all time. “The Times They Are A-Changin’,” in which Dylan told Americans “your sons and your daughters are beyond your command,” was an anthem of the civil rights movement and Vietnam War protests.

Awarding the 8 million Swedish crown ($930,000) prize, the Swedish Academy said: “Dylan has the status of an icon. His influence on contemporary music is profound.”

Swedish Academy member Per Wastberg said: “He is probably the greatest living poet.”

Asked if he thought Dylan’s Nobel lecture – traditionally given by the laureate in Stockholm later in the year – would be a concert, [he] replied: “Let’s hope so.”

Over the years, not everyone has agreed that Dylan was a poet of the first order. Novelist Norman Mailer countered: “If Dylan’s a poet, I’m a basketball player.”

Sara Danius, Permanent Secretary of the Nobel Academy, told a news conference there was “great unity” in the panel’s decision to give Dylan the prize.

Dylan has always been an enigmatic figure. He went into seclusion for months after a motorcycle crash in 1966, leading to stories that he had cracked under the pressure of his new celebrity.

He was born into a Jewish family but in the late 1970s converted to born-again Christianity and later said he followed no organized religion. At another point in his life, Dylan took up boxing.

Dylan’s spokesman, Elliott Mintz, declined immediate comment when reached by phone, citing the early hour in Los Angeles, where it was 3 a.m. at the time of the announcement. Dylan was due to give a concert in Las Vegas on Thursday evening.

Literature was the last of this year’s Nobel prizes to be awarded. The prize is named after dynamite inventor Alfred Nobel and has been awarded since 1901 for achievements in science, literature and peace in accordance with his will.

This Nobel Prize for Dylan is not that surprising, the prize being Swedish. Carl Michael Bellman, arguably Sweden’s most famous poet, was a musician as well.
