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.

Here are 7 suspicious revelations from the US attorney forced out by Bill Barr

Published

When Attorney General Bill Barr tried to force out Geoffrey Berman, who had been the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York, he created a mess he clearly didn't foresee. He claimed Berman had stepped down, but Berman quickly refuted that claim. Berman's opposition foiled Barr's attempt to replace him with an outsider to the office, and eventually, Berman left on the understanding that his deputy, Audrey Strauss, would take over.

The tumultuous and dramatic series of events left a question that has yet to be answered: Why did Barr want to replace Berman so badly? Given the SDNY's centrality to several cases that directly or indirectly implicate President Donald Trump, the hamfisted effort to oust Berman has raised suspicions of potential misconduct and improper influence.

Published

on

Astronomers believe they have discovered a new, bizarre type of cosmic object that is invisible to all wavelengths of light except radio.

This story originally appeared at Salon.

The strange circular objects in question have been unofficially dubbed "Odd Radio Circles" (ORCs); three of them were discovered in a recent data accumulated during a preliminary survey by the Australian Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder, a radio telescope array in Western Australia. A fourth Odd Radio Circle was discovered when researchers sifted through old data from 2013.
