Agreed, thisisunreal. I can’t for the life of me figure out VC’s motto.


“Symbols Rule The World, Not Words Nor Laws”


Things that (may or may not) represent or stand for other things “rule the world”?

Definition of symbol in English:

symbol

noun

1 A mark or character used as a conventional representation of an object, function, or process, e.g. the letter or letters standing for a chemical element or a character in musical notation.

‘the symbol r in Figure 5 represents a gene which is ineffective’

‘the chemical symbol for helium is He’


1.1 A shape or sign used to represent something such as an organization, e.g. a red cross or a Star of David.

‘the Red Cross symbol’

‘the Star of David, the Jewish symbol’


2 A thing that represents or stands for something else, especially a material object representing something abstract.

‘the limousine was another symbol of his wealth and authority’

Instead of calling a spade a spade one should focus on the symbolism of a spade? I don’t get it.

Dear all, I better just post the below Youtube / Google video (which has almost reached 1.5million views in only a few days - thus further boosting this unfunny comedian's "popularity") with little or no comment on my part. You never know nowadays: to vent your disgust at any sort of repugnant, obnoxious, abominable, unpalatable, viscid, sanctimonious, hypocritical and downright clownish celebrities might get you cited for "defamation" - or even "hate speech"...Ugh. :mellow:

Barf bags ready? Ok, here we go:

Comments are, however, quite welcome. At your own risk, I suppose ! :P

Social engineers with little little steps have taken society to a point where we get this. This is wrong on so many levels that it makes my head spin. It is almost as good as the genderless bathrooms. Come to think of it this idea belongs there :lol:
Angela Merkel Says Freedom Of Speech Must Be Curtailed To Keep Society Free
“Those limits begin where hatred is spread, they begin where the dignity of other people is violated. This house will and must oppose extreme speech otherwise our society will no longer be the free society that it was,” said Merkel.
Double Speak at its best.

Wow. Cohen just made me throw up in my mouth. I'm speechless and that's just as good since the Nutwork seems to work overtime now to outlaw anyones words but their own. Good luck with that. :o

Let's listen to an agitating song instead

His comedy is always based on one thing - exploiting the good nature and hospitality of the real people he chooses as victims, expecting us the audience to share his contempt for them, both for who they are and their stupidity in inviting him in and accepting his ridiculous persona.

My reaction was always a feeling of shame and embarrassment on his behalf. What he did show was the generosity and open hearts of ordinary people whatever they may be.

His special gift is to be able to hide this clever unfeeling nastiness behind the guise of a simple crazy nice guy, but if you laugh it leaves you feeling you joined in with the school bully.

Dear Patrix,

Now, that's funny ...

"Video unavailable in (my) country"

Sasha Baron Cohen should be pleased with that. <_<

Haha. It’s called ”Throw the jew down the well” and Borat is singing in a Redneck bar where everyone sings along emphatically. It looks very staged though as I believe most of Cohens work are.

This is an interesting interview where he while being groomed by the interviewers drops the hilarious “I grew up in the suburbs and then I went to Harvard…” (or something along that). I hope its allowed to see in Italy :D

We’re awfully sorry Sir Cohen that we are making your jokes not work anymore (as he complains about in the last part of his ADL speech).

It’s funny how a guy like this, very out of touch but with much chutzpah, tries to enter the stage and “fix things”. His scheme seems to be to demonize his fellow Jew Mark Zuckerberg so that they can work together and censor Facebook et al. even more, so that “freedom and democracy can prevail” and most importantly so that his Ali G and Borat jokes will continue to be funny…

A snippet from his Wikipedia says it all :)

Early life
Baron Cohen was born in West London to Jewish parents. His mother, photographer Daniella Naomi (née Weiser), was born in Israel. His father, Gerald Baron Cohen (1932–2016), a clothing store owner, was born in London and raised in Wales. Baron Cohen was raised Jewish and is fluent in Hebrew.

Baron Cohen's maternal family were German Jews, emigrants to Israel. His paternal family were Ashkenazi Jews, who moved to Pontypridd and London in the United Kingdom. His paternal grandfather, Morris Cohen, added "Baron" to his surname. His maternal grandmother, who lived in Haifa, Israel, trained as a ballet dancer in Germany.

Baron Cohen has two older brothers: Erran and Amnon. Erran is a composer and has worked on several of Sacha's films. Baron Cohen's cousin Simon Baron-Cohen is an autism researcher.

Education
Baron Cohen was educated at The Haberdashers' Aske's Boys' School, an independent school in Elstree, Hertfordshire, attended the University of Cambridge, read History at Christ's College, Cambridge, and graduated in 1993 with upper-second-class honours. As an undergraduate, Baron Cohen wrote his thesis on the American civil rights movement. While a member of the Cambridge University Amateur Dramatic Club, Baron Cohen performed in plays such as Fiddler on the Roof and Cyrano de Bergerac, as well as in Habonim Dror Jewish theatre.
