    The Best Carnival in the World Takes Place in Aalst, Flanders



    “The annual Carnival parade in the Belgian city of Aalst went ahead on Sunday, despite being stripped of its UNESCO cultural heritage status last year over anti-Semitism accusations.

    The event featured participants dressed in costumes representing Jewish stereotypes, with some wearing the shtreimel, a fur hat worn by hassids, or displaying golden teeth and hooked noses.

    Revellers stressed that the parade was meant to poke fun at Jewish people, rather than being an anti-Semitic or racist event.

    “If you are a Jew you are included. You are included in our Carnival. If we laugh with you that means we like you. If we laugh with you, we love you,” said one.

    Earlier this week, the Israeli Foreign Minister urged the Belgian government to ban the parade, but criticism was dismissed by the city authorities who defended the costumes as ‘satirica’.”

    My town of birth, Aalst, has been at war with world Jewry for about a year, ever since part of the parade featured Jewish dolls and people dressing up like Orthodox Jews and yellow (and multicolored) Jew star badges were distributed. It's harmless satire, but as you can imagine, some people don't view it that way.



    Aalst Carnival is the biggest carnival in Flanders and Belgium, it's what Köln's carnival is to Germany. But now its future is uncertain as the Jews want to ban it or perhaps transform it into some kind of gay pride parade. Yet that would result in some actual counter-semitism as Aalst carnival is a huge and popular event and none of the locals think that their favorite hobby is somehow wrong.

    The Jews and their NPC-allies made a big deal of the facial features of the parade dolls too, which they say are reminiscent of NS-propaganda, despite the stationary dolls being dolls which are put into service every year to serve different purposes, they've also been dressed up as crusaders before, for instance. For now though the local authorities and the nationalist mayor don't give in.





    “We think that we are born today tabula rasa without a history, but man has always lived in the myth. To think that man is born without a history within himself — that is a disease. It is absolutely abnormal, because man is not bom every day. He is born into a specific historical setting with specific historical qualities, and therefore, he is only complete when he has a relation to these things. If you are growing up with no connection from the past, it is like being born without eyes and ears and trying to perceive the external world with accuracy. Natural science may say, “You need no connection with the past; you can wipe it out”, but that is a mutilation of the human being.” – Carl Gustav Jung, 1957
