    I consider myself a leftist, but this is like a perfect example of leftist retardation.
    Boycott an lgbt festival in the only country in the ME that has lgbt rights to support a national struggle of a group of people who hang lgbt in the street. wat

    They are standing up for human rights and are heroes as they do this at their own expense.

    Even Canada is on this:

    That's retarded. It's an event to promote lgbt rights in Israel, many of whom are Palestinians that escaped the persecution the face as sexual minorities in the WB.

    Palestinians Thank Argentina and Lionel Messi for Canceling “Friendly” with Israel

    June 6, 2018


    Mobilizations across the world succeed in thwarting the Israeli government's use of the match to cover up its war crimes and egregious human rights violations against Palestinians.


    [​IMG]

    Argentinian trade unions as well as the Madres de Plaza del Mayo joined the calls. Last week, a rally took place outside the Argentina Football Association (AFA) in Buenos Aires....

    The cancellation of Israel’s ‘friendly’ match with Argentina is a boost to the Red Card Israel campaign, which has called on FIFA to expel Israel - as it expelled apartheid South Africa - due to its violations against Palestinian football and its disregard for FIFA statutes....

    I remember when they gave it to Obama right after he was elected. Clearly only given to the most deserving causes.

    My blood pressure always spikes when I hear about the Nobel Peace Prize. It is handed out by Norwegian ex-politicians whose appointement to the commitee is basically a reward for long and faithful service rather than actual merit. As the committee is appointed by the norwegian parliament it also tends to (surprise surprise) reflect the current party composition of parliament.

    So we have a nepotistic group of retired career politicians consisting exclusively of people from a country completely detached from international affairs (the norwegians are basically hobbits for f's sake), handing out a prize to proponents of whatever political cause the dominant party/parties of the norwegian parliament happens to be sympathetic towards at the moment.

    Not only does it baffle me how this prize garners such international attention; it baffles me that it ever became a thing in the first place. At least the other Nobel prizes are handed out by people competent in their field.
