Just bear in mind that this exhibit of Viking artefacts on loan to the Melbourne Museum from Sweden features nothing but Viking artefacts. Included in the cache that arrived in Australia were some Viking human remains which were to be on display. But not anymore.
Why you ask?
Because of complaints from the usual suspects of Australian “First Peoples” as they like to characterise themselves, Aboriginals elites with their bogus and fraudulent claim that such a display would cause distress and sadness.
I’m sure most reasonable Australian would find this outrageously offensive. What next will be cancelled for reasons that its causes distress and offence.
So a few aboriginals in 21st century who are are a gazillion light years away from and have no connection at all to marauding Vikings from the 8th century of the Northern hemisphere are dictating what will be on display at a public museum in Melbourne in 2018 on the fraudulent claim that it will cause distress and sadness. I call total crap on this. What do these snowflakes do when they go to the movies or watch a documentary on FTA or cable television which features human remains?
And more to the point, if Melbourne Museum is prepared to fall for this bogus dictate from aboriginal elites why not simply run a trigger warning (as they do on television) outside the enclosed area to the effect that ‘this program/exhibit features nudity, violence and drug references and human remains’.
