It is not any less true though, more news outlets report on this.
Probably one of the very few old-timers here who hasn't been a regimental leader.

I was just poking fun, I actually thought the linked article was quite well written and factual.

That said, there are some god-awful editors for this particular outlet. See this for example - one of many articles on the front page that are arguably more skewed than what is coming out of CNN. The comment section has been closed, of course.

Lol no, it was just the first place to report it. I mainly get my daily news from the BBC and CBC, and in-depth analysis from blogs.

~10 Catholic blokes seem to cause quite the stir in the Netherlands with their presence. I love to see civil discussion where one side wears masks and attack the others. Was a good meme

god damn, Anthony is smart, he was able to get the shit AEF to tie with the best reg in the game. The tactical geniusness needed to pull off such a feat is insane. He's the Erwin Rommel of NW.

That's actually in my city, just in front of the train station. Even see a few guys I actually know personally, and the guy I voted for last two elections.

'Gezin in gevaar' is such a meme. "I'm confronted with people being different every day!!11  :'( :'( :'( ". The whole protest was against Suitsupply because they made an advertisment with a gay couple. So what do they want? Gay people to become invisible? It's retarded, and truly nobody cares. I wouldn't call 30 people on a saturdayafternoon a 'stir'.


I actually found their written report

Roughly 150 pro-homosexual counter-demonstrators, many of them masked,

Hahaha 150. Never. Never ever. Even if you count all the press, police, protesters and counterprotesters, there weren't more then aprox. 50.

Protesting the gay advertisement was a bit much but masked half-men attacking you is probably worse in a country built on DEMOCRACY. I  think it sets a bad model for Antifa to be a worldwide thing considering what they do and the values they are walking all over.

in a country built on DEMOCRACY

Our country was built on tax avoidance and the freedom to force everyone to believe in a very specific branch of Protestantism. The whole democracy thing didn't come in until...well, never.

I have trouble feeling any form of pity for people whose goal in life is to strip me of my rights so that they can feel better about themselves. I have this argument with Christians a lot.

Someone call the boys over at Guinness, we've got another one for the book.

I'd think our current pope is more of a danger to Catholic values than a group of masked Dutch queers. I understand your argument in regards to civil discourse, though.

What is wrong with current Pope?  Is he following words of Jesus to much instead of made up shit priests came up in middle ages?
