Swedish royals condemn swastika-laden art that depicts king eating pizza off naked woman

Published

on

Sweden’s royal court has criticised the publication of an artwork showing the Swedish king eating pizza off a naked woman’s body, while the queen tries to scrub a swastika off the floor.

“There is a limit to how much anyone should have to endure. The picture is offensive, hurtful and malicious,” the Marshal of the Court, Svante Lindqvist, said in a statement.

In the picture, King Carl XVI Gustaf is shown overlooking the naked body of pop singer Camilla Henemark, together with a group of people eating pizza off her, some of whom were named in an unofficial tell-all biography that shook the Swedish monarchy two years ago.

The 2010 biography claimed the king had a year-long affair with Henemark and gave details of his alleged partying at dubious clubs, one of which was owned by an ex-convict.

Artist Elisabeth Ohlson Wallin told Swedish tabloid Aftonbladet that the montage “shows how women are treated in these types of boys’ clubs”.

The picture is to appear in a magazine published by the Social Democratic party and is controversial even in a country that cherishes its freedom of speech.

“I’m prepared to take my punishment if it’s illegal,” Daniel Suhonen, editor-in-chief and publisher of Tiden, told news agency TT.

Elisabeth Ohlson Wallin is known for sparking controversy, and has made headlines in recent days in Serbia with her exhibition “Ecce Homo”, featuring photos portraying Jesus among homosexuals, transsexual people and people with AIDS.

The exhibition, organised as part of Belgrade Pride Week, opened Wednesday under heavy police security despite the threats by extremist groups to target the show.

I feel like Melania must have had a hand in copyi--I mean, designing this.

Republican Martha McSally absolutely destroyed by GOP consultant for her defense of Trump

Published

on

Interim-Sen. Martha McSally (R-AZ) was shut down on Twitter on Friday by a top Republican as she tried to defend President Donald Trump on Twitter.

House impeachment managers have argued that America cannot wait until the 2020 election to pass judgment on Trump, as the first article of impeachment was passed because the House of Representatives concluded he was attempting to cheat in the election.

"The president's misconduct cannot be decided at the ballot box. For we cannot be assured that the vote will be fairly won," Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) charged on Friday.

McSally said Schiff was wrong and judgment on Trump should be decided by the voters, even if Trump was caught cheating.
