In Germany, reporting on the Richard Curtis-produced 1010 No Pressure child-slaughter clip has been virtually off the radar.
Still, NoTricksZone reader Ike has found a short blurb at the online Suedeutsche Zeitung (South German News) publication called jetzt.de, which found the clip: ‘hilarious’.
The blurb was written by someone who goes by the name okkasionalsozialist and is titled:
What’s in Store For Enviro-Skeptics: ‘No Pressure’
Keep in mind that the Sueddeutsche Zeitung is a leading center-left national daily in Germany. But judging by what it feels is fit to print, I’d say it’s slipping back toward the bottom of the gutter.
Here’s what okkasionalsozialist of the Sueddeutche Zeitung jetzt.de says about the 10:10 clip:
10:10 is a funny British campaign that motivates individuals and organizations of every type to reduce their CO2 emissions. To make their educational intent more clear, they had Richard Curtis produce a hilarious little film, which in my opinion is really a bit expressive though.
Allegedly too many viewers misunderstood the clip, and so it was taken down, at least officially, by 1010.
So there you have it. Appalled viewers are simply not sophisticated enough to understand what the exploding kids who chose to dissent really means.
Here’s a screenshot of their little report, just in the case they get the idea to pull a 1010 deletion.
Okay, some will say that jetzt.de is only a sub-publication of the Sueddeutsche Zeitung, and so the Sueddeutsche Zeitung is not really responsible for the content – right?
At the jetzt.de website, it is specifically written that the Sueddeuteche Zeitung is responsbile for content.
Obviously the Sueddeutsche Zeitung is not at all offended by the smut, and offered no words to condemn it.

UPDATE; Reader Dirk H points out that the piece is filed under the jetzt.de label: “climate porn”, and so the author may be expressing some irony here. Yet, there are absolutely no words condemning the film.
