New same old game in town: "ultra-romanticism".

Germany's Romantic literary revival built on Blade Runner and seven deadly sins

Hieronymi’s ultra-romantic manifesto rails against “impostors” for whom their “homeland is a grave to be urinated upon”, while Strauss prophesies that “strangers” are “a danger for all those who believe that their life will continue as it did until now”, even though he remains ambiguous whether that could also be a positive.

That's bad enough (my sympathies are always on the side of those pissing against odds, bullies and bourgeois sentiment) but then the sickening little Horst Wessel redux ends with praise to... Macron.

“We have to find a new, more Romantic language to talk about Europe – that is something that Macron has started to do.”

Wasn't the rise of that fellow in Austria, in the late 19th/early 20th, what's his name - the parvenu aristocrat -, fueled by such lazy-minded mawkishness? Whipped up all the proles against the liberal government. Thank god we've held fast....

A lot of promising housepainters are taking up novels these days it seems!

I love how they are all for sinning--against people--but pissing on "the homeland" is strictly verboten.

Rebellion starts with iconoclasm against the false gods, Dummköpfe! But then the whole point is that they are not rebels and innovators--they can't wait to stretch out their legs in an orderly march.

The newspapers are full of bullshit stories - especially the Guardian - but this one takes the cake. Anyone only halfway familiar with German Romanticism probably already stopped reading when the author mentioned Goethe in one sentence with Friedrich and Schlegel.

Strauß is as untalented as the professional Jewish rabble-rouser Biller who failed miserably in making a living as a literary pornographer. Not the only parallel to Henryk Broder, by the way.

We've seen far too much iconoclasm in the last 100 years. Hence the devaluation - not Nietzsche's 'transvaluation' - of all values has rendered large parts of the western world spiritually, morally, ethically and intellectually void. The crooked shady Oedipal bankster Macron actually is just another metastasis of this cancer. A more romantic language to talk about Europe? That retard probably doesn't know any French. Either that or even a truck couldn't pull him out of his world of make-believe.

>4 Phlegethon99:

We've seen too much scum blathering about "Jewish rabble-rousers". Get lost, you fucking Nazi shit.

Ew. Grossed out. And blocked.

I'm sure there are many sounding boards for this nasty variety of mawkishness. Please, this isn't one of them.

Not "Jewish" but "professional Jewish". Therefore Biller and to a lesser degree Broder are massively frowned upon in the German Jewish community, at least the firmly established predominantly orthodox ones. Of course your reacting like Pavlov's dogs whenever Jewishness becomes a topic (and no matter whether you like it or not, at least in this country it *is* a business) just proves my point that today's societies rapidly turn towards uncalled-for hysteria.

Timothy Garton Ash looks at the latest revival of xenophobic nationalist scum, this time the Alternativ fur Deutschland:


"Tiresomely familiar to any observer of Trump, Brexit, or Wilders is the demagogic appeal to emotions while playing fast and loose with facts."

8: And stop race-baiting! It's so tired and cliche. And I always am amused at how the mongelized hordes on an insignificant peninsula (Whites in Europe) think they are the Master Race, yet are always, always, always whinging about being the victim of whatever ethnicity du jour tickles their dirty sphincter. Your Dollar Store Ezra Pound routine ("Jewish" vs "professional Jewish") is dumb. Don't turn this discussion thread into a racist swamp populated by neofascist baboons. In summary, the Dresden firebombing was good, right, and completely justified. (S'mores not included.)
