’60 Minutes’ goes to Sweden to cover plight of refugees, gets assaulted on camera

23 Nov

Fellowship of the Minds

A bleeding-heart CBS 60 Minutes news team went to Sweden, to cover the plight of Muslim refugees there — what the female reporter calls “communities of disaffected migrants who can’t find jobs and have few prospects.”

As the reporter intones that “many locals [migrants] are polite and friendly and happy to talk,” police left and young black males (North African Muslims?) with masked faces began attacking the 60 Minutes news team on camera — throwing a rock, kicking, and punching.

Here are some screenshots I took followed by the video.


Hey, CBS! Look up the definition of “useful idiot” ’cause that’s what you are — useful idiots for Islam!

THE BLUEBLACK2010: Australian and International Pageantry Blog Site

The stage play is about the life story of a morbidly obese (600 pounds) woman  who is inherently good with a sense of humour named ‘Vicky’.

Interestingly, the role of Vicki who is discriminated because of her weight mirrors the life of the former beauty queen when she was almost stripped-off her crown when she gained weight during her reign.
