This is the logo of the 2012 Olympics in London.
What does it look like to you?
Think about it…
If you answered:
(a) A colossal waste of £400.000 for something that could have been done by a primary school class with a packet of crayons and some cartridge paper during lunchtime then score 10 points.
(b) Lisa Simpson performing The Act of Horatio score then 5 points.
(c) The word “Zion” and therefore proof that the London Olympics is a vile plot aimed not just at hosing Britain’s remaining credit up the wall and down the drain for the benefit of the Rothschilds but that Boris Johnson is in thrall to the Elders of Zion and Dan Brown had better get typing already then go to Tehran, go directly to Tehran, do not pass Go and do not collect any points.
Iran has indicated it will attend the 2012 Olympics in London, despite complaining that the Games logo resembles the word “Zion”.
Last month the Iranians complained to the International Olympic Comittee and called for the graphic to be replaced.
They objected on the grounds that its resemblance to the word Zion – a Biblical term for Israel – was racist.
“Racist” – the A-bomb of all accusations. Well, I suppose Lisa Simpson is yellow… But, c’mon! It’s a very silly logo. I quite liked the bid one which was a ribbon of the Olympic colours in the shape of the Thames with “London 2012″ in a nice clear sans-serif font. A Zionist plot though! Bloody hell the mullahs are either deranged beyond human comprehension and wear tin-foil under their turbans or they were raising the stakes in a staggering bluff in the game of victimhood poker. Whichever it is they are demonstrating weakness. Only a cultural milieu that is profoundly insecure could be that silly. The Iranian government here displays itself as (to reference The Simpsons again) a sort of “Comic Book Store Guy” typing tripe in grimy Y-fronts. It’s like the worst idiocies of the blogosphere (that they try to ban). Hell, they might as well be birthers!
The simple truth of what this reveals is that just like “Comic Book Store Guy” sitting in his basement arguing via the web the relative merits of Kirk and Jean-Luc their culture is so trammelled and of such paucity that they have to resort to such idiocy. It is pathetic that so much of the Islamic World has to create enormously about such risible complaints to do with the (allegedly) insidious power of a small country of perhaps six million people or so… Pathetic but the only way to explain how, whenever it comes to Premier League fisticuffs, the Israelis always hand their enemies their asses on a plate. It is the same mentality that trumpets this “stealth fighter” when to anyone who knows anything about combat aircraft it’s just a warmed-over F-5. Yeah, the twin canted fins will reduce RCS from certain angles but the claim this is the equal of an F-18 Hornet is ridiculous.
It is the rhetoric and bombast of failure. Fundamentally it is a cultural failure because culture needs freedom and without that it is nothing other than to be laughed at. We take the Islamist threat from the likes of these loons too seriously. They cannot win for they have no culture. Culture is not coherence but quite the reverse and pathetic paranoia about alleged Zionists is not a substitute. The great “axis of evil” is fundamentally flawed here because when it comes down to it they are very, very silly. It is well beyond time we started deploying the one weapon they cannot stand: mockery.
One day (and perhaps these revolutions are a start) the peoples of the Middle East and North Africa will be proud of what they are and not what they were “denied” and then… Well, wouldn’t that be kick-ass great? A collection of nations that are about what they are about and not defined by a mythic and stultifying sense of what was “taken” from them by the usual suspects.
PS. Whilst shopping in Central Manchester on Thursday I spotted on the big screens that for the Eurovision Israel is again fielding trans-sexual “diva” Dana International (won in ’98) singing a song called (best Terry Thomas) “Ding Dong”. The Israelis seem to regard such international jamborees with appropriate good humour. The mullahs do not and that is their essential weakness. A weakness we should exploit mercilessly until the arrant hypocrisy and screaming idiocy of such regimes is seen in 100 metre high neon letters over Qom. To quote the Simpsons again, “Ayatollah, Assaholla”.
Tip of the feline enumerating hat to Snowolf. Read the whole thing. It’s ace!
