Al-Jazeera Says Not Wanting to Eat Insects is Racist

Because Christopher Columbus, or something.

Published

on

According to Al Jazeera, not wanting to eat insects is racist because Christopher Columbus said it was a trait of “savages”.

Yes, really.

Al-Jazeera’s Yara Elmjouie put out a video entitled ‘Why bugs are the protein of the future’ in which he claims that westerners have a fear of edible insects because “European colonizers demonized indigenous people as “savages” for eating insects.”

“Those early racist characterizations played a part in forming later conceptions of insects as “disgusting,” tweeted Elmjouie.

“Edible bugs are seen as sustainable protein, receiving even the UN’s blessing,” wrote Elmjouie, citing a 2013 UN report that “promotes insects as a sustainable high-protein food.”

“Over 2 billion people eat insects around the world today. So…let’s also think about reframing our past, and chart a new course toward a future that’s fully liberated from those early colonizers’ misinformed worldviews,” he added.

Gross. I am not eating bugs.

As we highlighted yesterday, VICE gave a sympathetic platform to people who enjoy the fetish of including insects in their sex play, including literally putting worms up their penis.

The progressive utopia is you sitting alone, atomized, in a converted sewer pipe pod eating bugs while crying in front of your only companion which is an emotional support pig.

No thanks.

Photographer Hired For Balenciaga ‘Kiddie BDSM’ Shoot Says He’s Being Made a Scapegoat

Gabriele Galimberti says he didn’t choose pedo-inspired set design.

The photographer hired by Balenciaga to take shots of children holding BDSM teddy bears says he is being made into a scapegoat by the fashion company.

As we highlighted yesterday, there was uproar after images to promote Balenciaga’s Paris Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2023 collection showed young girls holding plush bear bags adorned with bondage gear.

The bears are seen wearing padlocks, fishnets, leather harnesses, as well as ankle and wrist restraints.

Another photo court showed documents concerning Ashcroft v Free Speech Coalition, a 2002 Supreme Court case. The case struck down a portion of the Child Pornography Prevention Act (CPPA) of 1996, ruling that “virtual” child pornography is protected speech.

Despite some ‘fact checkers’ labeling the issue an “absurd conspiracy theory,” Balenciaga publicly apologized for the controversy and said they were pursuing legal action against those responsible.

The fashion label claimed the photoshoot included “unapproved” items that were not given the green light to appear in the campaign.

However, it now appears this may have just been a deliberate ploy to deflect blame.

Famous photographer Gabriele Galimberti said the shoot was intended to be based on the theme of giving and receiving gifts, drawing inspiration from his “toy story” photography series.

Mr Galimberti responded to Balenciaga’s threat of legal action by telling Newsweek: “I am not in a position to comment [on] Balenciaga’s choices, but I must stress that I was not entitled in whatsoever manner to neither choose the products, nor the models, nor the combination of the same.”

In other words, Galimberti is claiming Balenciaga threw him under a bus and that the company itself was responsible for creating the pedo-friendly photo shoot set up.

The argument that the scandal represents something rotten within Balenciaga was bolstered by other evidence.

As a Twitter user highlighted, in a separate Balenciaga photo shoot, a book by Michaël Borremans, a Belgian painter, appears on the desk next to a model.

Some of Borremans’ paintings depict naked children who appear to be traumatized or involved in some kind of abusive environment.

Meanwhile, Kim Kardashian, an ambassador for Balenciaga, has refused to comment on the issue, despite publicly condemning her soon to be ex-husband Kanye West for offensive words he posted on Twitter.

Balenciaga Apologizes For Vile Kiddie Bondage Ad Featuring Child Porn Prop

Fashion brand claims ignorance.

Fashion brand Balenciaga has apologized for a vile photo shoot which featured kids holding teddy bears dressed in bondage gear and a prop relating to a child porn Supreme Court case.

Critics slammed the Spanish-turned-French label after photos were released showing young girls holding plush bear bags adorned with BDSM gear.

Perhaps even more insidious was the placement of a prop showing court documents concerning Ashcroft v Free Speech Coalition, a 2002 Supreme Court case.

The case struck down a portion of the Child Pornography Prevention Act (CPPA) of 1996, ruling that “virtual” child pornography is protected speech.

In an Instagram post, Balenciaga wrote, “We sincerely apologise for any offense our holiday campaign may have caused. Our plush bear bags should not have been featured with children in this campaign. We have immediately removed the campaign from all platforms.”

The company also claimed ignorance when it came to the Supreme Court case prop, adding that it would be pursuing legal charges against those responsible for featuring it.

“We apologise for displaying unsettling documents in our campaign,” the company stated. “We take this matter very seriously and are taking legal action against the parties responsible for creating the set and including unapproved items for our Spring ‘23 campaign photoshoot.”

“We strongly condemn the abuse of children in any form,” the statement continued. “We stand for children safety and well-being.”

Respondents on Twitter expressed their utter disbelief that the campaign, which was part of Balenciaga’s Paris Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2023 collection, was allowed to run.

“Frightening how many adults must have been involved in this,” one Twitter user remarked. “Parents, photographers, creative directors, copywriters, design agency staff, producers, managers, advertisers… and not one of them thought, ‘hang on a minute?'”

Balenciaga had previously departed Twitter, presumably in protest against Elon Musk, with critics pointing out that the decision could have been influenced by Musk cracking down on the platform being used to facilitate child exploitation.
