Q: Venetians, you have spine and wisdom! When would others follow you?

https://rusreality.com/2017/06/21/venice-want-to-close-for-tourist-ships/

 

Basically they are saying, 'you are an eyesore, we do not want you in Venice, we would rather earn less and preserve our culture, peace and happiness'.

 

Who? http://theconversation.com/tourists-behaving-badly-how-culture-shapes-co...

 

Not just Venetians, 'overseas' Chinese like Hongkongers who have the misfortune of being 'reunited' with these psychos.

 

'Protests against tourist behaviour have erupted in Barcelona, Venice and Hong Kong.

 

In Hong Kong, tourists are blamed for being noisy, inconsiderate, urinating in public, buying up necessities such as baby milk powder, and generally not following local customs. Chinese tourists, in particular, face harsh criticism in Hong Kong as well as in Thailand.'

Hong Kong also makes public service announcements about covering your mouth when coughing or sneezing.

I was in Hong Kong and I had a very heavy bag with me. I was told that I would have to use a lift to get to the next platform to transfer trains. There was a woman in a wheelchair and two people with crutches standing behind the line in an orderly queue. I stood behind them and patiently waited also. Next thing you know, a huge horde of screaming peasants all started to walk around the woman in the wheelchair and stood to her side and gradually started to shuffle so that they were ahead of her and the rest of us who were waiting in the queue.

 

To all those people who grew up with political correctness and the fetishization of different "cultures" all I can say is thanks for taking our fangs out. You've left us bereft of the means of surviving and preserving our civilization.

 

I wonder if the Romans felt the same emotions when the Ostrogoths came rampaging through the city gates?

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
