CNN Turns a Boring Royal Visit Into a Racist Nightmare in Just 13 Seconds | PolicyMic
How long does it take for the most trusted news source to turn a boring non-story into a racist, xenophobic nightmare?
About 13 seconds it turns out, and that’s only because CNN news correspondent Jeanne Moos takes her time narrating the intro [video here].
Earlier this month, Prince William, the Duchess of Cambridge and chubby-cheeked baby George took their first visit overseas. There’s not much to say about royal trips abroad, aside from cute playdate photos with the commoners, but CNN, bless their hearts, found a way to make us sit up and wonder what century they belong in.

Ugh…fuck CNN and fuck the Royal Family. The Brits should have done what the French and Russians did to their royal/imperial families *ages* ago.

What did the Royal Family do wrong? They were clearly informed of and prepared to honor Maori traditions,  it’s just CNN who have the cultural sensitivity of the East India Trading Company.

A German soldier attempts to cut barbed wire in order to attack a Russian position in Stalingrad. It is interesting to note that he has his Model 24 Stielhandgranate tucked into the front of his belt. He is most likely planning on using it immediately following the breaching of this obstacle.
