Julia Gorin: The Inescapable Scourge of the Predetermined Mind: An “Artist’s” Anti-Serb Exhibit at the Olympics

Serb-bashing photo exhibit at London Olympics

No sporting event, pet adoption day, bake sale, or balloon ascension would be complete without an anti-Serb exhibit.

And so it is that in the heart of London during the Olympics, we have a photographic display delivering the 1,654,789,425,378th recycling of “What The Serbs Did.” By some douche named Tom Stoddart.

And these artist types purport to be “original.” Check it out (with thanks to, and to Draga for letting people know): [LINK]
On a page announcing the exhibit appears the following caption:

Photographer Tom Stoddart stands at his Perspectives photographic exhibition at More London on July 25, 2012 in London, England. Seventy-eight of Stoddart’s signature black and white pictures form a free, open-air display at More London Riverside, between City Hall and HMS Belfast. During his distinguished career Stoddart has travelled to more than 50 countries and documented such historic events as the fall of the Berlin Wall, the Siege of Sarajevo and the election of Nelson Mandela as South Africa’s first black president…

So everything that’s supposed to capture our imaginations, he’s swept away by. All the pop-historical markers that we’re supposed to celebrate or be infuriated by, he’s there. To deliver a visual representation from the same perspective already served up. He reviles, and honors, everything he’s meant to. Just another swine at the feeding frenzy.

Artists’ talents are always and only intended and welcomed if they’re of service to existing narratives. So, as people of mere talent, they’re not to question the official story behind what they’re depicting; they’re just to be the artistic leg of the allowed narrative. It’s voluntary servitude and it’s been with us in the free world a long time.

May our God bless you!

The attached about anti-Serb display is outrageous and very dishonorable to the Serbian people.

First all I have some questions about this display.

1. Who authorized this display to take place at the Olympics?

2. It’s the Olympics committee responsibility then to allow this display, and does such a display need permission from the Olympic committee?

In the Serbian quarters of the Olympics we have not found any such display of the following:

1). The destruction of 153 Serbian Orthodox Church’s and monasteries.

2). The list of several missing men, women, and children.

3). The grave sites of children and youth killed in the region while fishing, the beheaded Father Hariton, and the missing Father Stefan.

4). The constant attack of Serbian families and stealing of cows and threats on a constant basis.

We have not seen such displays at any Serbian headquarters at the Olympics.

What we do see is when something is done what the Serbs might of done then the media knows about it within an instant, but if something happens to the Serbs against the Albanians – we hardly ever hear about this information in the media.

The Olympic committee for the year 2012 is now responsible in allowing this display and we should address the Olympics about our dismay, and disrespect towards the Serbs.

Peace to your soul!

God love and bless you!

Humbly in Christ our Lord,

+ Very Reverend Archimandrite Nektarios Serfes

Make yourself heard!

I would imagine that the London Organizing Committee okayed the exhibit by dimwit Tom Stoddart. I complained to the email address supplied in Julia Gorin’s excellent article, and I hope others did too. As long as we can string together a few sentences in understood English, there is no reason why more people shouldn’t indicate their complete disgust. The email address is:

I believe it is long past time that people make the effort to indicate their disgust. Also, to the International Olympic Committee. That was pure evil.

So Israel gets no memorial for the murdered Israeli athletes, and the Serbs are singled out for particular scorn.

Common root? Whatever the Muslims want.

To 1389:-
Would appreciate for your recommending some reading so that I could understand the history of the problems with Serbs. Our Embassy was targeted by American cruise missile during that conflict. I need to understand the truth behind the war in that part of the world.

I’d say…follow the MONEY. Somebody must be giving grants to all of these lefty “artists” to keep on doing what they’re doing.

You just don’t see a big, prominent exhibition in the middle of a national capital during the Olympics without somebody having provided the funds and influence to put it there and publicize it.

This calls for a public shaming of everybody involved in sponsoring or funding this obscene spectacle.

5 1389 August 13, 2012 at 8:27 pm

@American Delight,

The British have had a lamentable tendency to favor the Muslim side in any conflict. One historian (see link) suggests that this pro-Muslim bias dates back to the reign of Elizabeth I, who was of course Protestant, and her rivalry with Catholic Spain, which had very recently expelled the Muslims.

6 1389 August 13, 2012 at 8:38 pm


Yes, I remember that. The Chinese embassy was bombed using a B-2 stealth bomber that flew directly out of Whiteman Air Force Base in the US. I do not know what sort of bomb or missile was used. Three Chinese reporters died, and 20 other people were injured.

I was out protesting against this bombing in Chicago afterward. Not that anybody paid much attention!

I suggest you start with the “Balkans for Dummies” series on 1389 Blog [LINK]. More detailed material about the Balkans is on Julia Gorin’s blog, Republican Riot.

In answer, of course the anti-Serb exhibit was well planned and funded. That’s why we can’t remain silent, but have to demand answers. I’ve already written to the 2012 Committee. It’s not necessary to write an epistle (long email), simply to slam them for having (during the Olympics) a well-orchestrated smear job on Serbia. Surely, the Serbian athletes, and Serbians generally, don’t merit such evilness and lies thrown in their faces. Who is Tom Stoddart anyway?

Thanks for your war on the ongoing propaganda war against the Serbs. Passed this on to some of the blogs and will continue to as many as I can:

Atlas Shrugs
Family Security Matters
Creeping Sharia
Nice Deb

Someday, Clinton will pay for his dastardly deed. (and others of course that supported this conflict)

@Ann S,

Thanks very much!

The bombing of China’s Embassy , Which Bill Clinton said was accidential .. But George Tennet said he authorized the attack . Brought China and Russia back together believing they still do have a common enemy . This new enemy is looking more and more like the old enemy they faced during W war 2 . Becuase of the propaganda and lies

11 Nick D. Petrovich August 14, 2012 at 11:57 am

Clinton is a rotten soul ,a pathological liar, and an American Caligula.

After his presidency everything goes in America.

hmmm – let’s see – a hatred of Jews and Serbs… can you think of anyone else, historically, who harbored such hatred? Hint: Arbeit Macht Frei!
May I make a related, if obscure, comment on this topic?
Although I follow some of the Olympic events, I do not watch or enjoy the opening or closing debacles, which have nothing to do with sport but are an obscene waste of time and money; but several years back I saw a portion of an opening which was ultra-pagan and dark in every way. it was oppressive and reeked of occult and ‘new age’ influences. Well, I saw a bit of the closing rituals from this recent Olympics, and noted that it was also dark, pagan new-agey and occult-tinged in many ways. And IF any of you have ever studied the occult and demonic associations of Hitler and his inner circles in the Nazi elite, you already know where I am going. If you have NOT studied this, please do so sometime. If nothing else, google Hitler and the occult, or ‘occult connections to nazism’. The dark, heathen rituals of the Olympic ceremonies and the IOC’s love of muslims and hatred of Jews and Serbs ( especially Serb Orthodox Christians ) does NOT seem unrelated to the Nazi associations.
Just food for thought.

Interesting that you should mentioned occult/pagan connection in your post. In 170 BC, the Olympics were dedicated to the Greek god Zeus. Antiochus IV (a protype of the coming antichrist) which was in rule of Jerusalem at the time, set up an image of Zeus in the Holy Temple and sacrificed a swine and forced the Jewish people to eat it.

As more info we get the United Nations, in their meditation room also has New Age like atmosphere and heavily involved in the cult of Gaia. Clinton and Gore both are new agers.

Well, we all know their one common denominator is their hatred for the Jewish people and the nation of Israel. Islam is Hitler’s ongoing “Final Solution” as they made an alliance with the Nazis in WWII and had their own extermination progrom in Bosnia where tens of thousands of them died in the death camps.

What begins with the Jews, does not end with the Jews.

In every Islamic country, Christians are being tortured, arrested, Churches burned, their property confiscated.

It is so heartbreaking; The Serbians were such brave fighters and were our allies in WWII and even George Bush supported the Islamic takeover of Kosovo.

Well, some of us won’t forget.

Thank you,

No Cross, No Crown !

Not sure what you mean by that!

If Christianity disappears from UK, there will be no crown–No empire !
