All the super woke people coming out to talk about the past crimes of France and the Church. A musician I like musing on all the food programs for the poor and scholarships for teens etc. that the money spent building Notre Dame could have funded.

all the super-wokes on twitter making me not give 2 fucks. IT'S A BUILDING. No people were hurt. That fact is all that's important here.

Christ, when Grenfell happened it didn't get this much of a reaction.

It's easy to laugh but the American right have been using this as an opportunity to talk about "Judeo-Christian civilization" and the like so if someone can be fucked to have that argument so I don't have to it's a public service.

Obviously it'd be better if all the internet bar Thumped, Reuters and google maps was turned off but, sure hey

I thought it was a weird "take" (am I using that right, Take"?) It's like saying if the Pharaohs hadn't spent all their riches building the Pyramids at Giza all the Egyptians could have had small pox vaccinations and iPads.

Anyway, burning churches is only cool if it's done by young male black metallers

Well I haven't followed it all too closely but I did see someone pointing out that France was busy expelling its entire jewish population while the Cathedral was being built and others talking about the influence islamic architecture had on it all.

It's a weird situation where my first reaction to seeing this happening was "oh no, the takes that will follow. THE TAKES."

2 guests were on Fox news last night trying to suggest something was up and surprisingly, in fairness to the anchors, they were cut off immediately from that kind of speculation.
Apparently there have been a number of attacks, including arson on churches in France recently. People with an agenda will of course conflate those with this.

I hope it was just an accident , or a black metaller

Nearly a thousand years later I don't think that'l all that important. However I do think it's a little offensive that France's richest man has pledged €100 million to the rebuilding efforts, if you can afford to give that away on a whim then you probably should try to help people living below the poverty line first (or be taxed a lot more so the government can do it.).

That Varg, always up to his mischief.

I can't remember if it was Cernovich or Shapiro, one of those idiots, who was on a "the west has fallen" kick last night.

was it not destroyed in the war and rebuild back then too?

like, it's an historic building, but now it has a new bit of history. The 'big fire' that happened cos one of the workmen left the toaster on too long.

if they can rebuild St.Mels in Longford, this will be a piece of piss.

Along with almost every other country in Europe. It was a bad time for Jews, or anyone else who wasn't Catholic.

It was nearly destroyed during the French Revolution.

I really hate how quickly certain types are trying to turn this into, simultaneously, a hate crime and a reason to engage in hate crimes. People suck!
