King of the hill: Elephants, elegance and 170 years of Carlsberg

Some 170 years ago, a visionary brewer named Jacob Christian Jacobsen (1811-87) laid the foundations for a modern company in Denmark.

The man took over his father’s brewery business and followed his passion for beer on a lifelong journey to improve the quality of the brand he named Carlsberg. From lagers and ales to stouts and wheat beers, Carlsberg is arguably today the most popular beer in Denmark as well as many other countries across the world.

Cultural contribution
JC Jacobsen and Carl Jacobsen have contributed significantly not just towards the Danish business arena but also towards enhancing the architecture and cultural life of Copenhagen.

Among the landmark architectural structures gifted to Copenhagen by Carlsberg are the iconic Little Mermaid, the Botanical Garden and the New Carlsberg Glyptotek art museum.

Moreover, the Carlsberg Foundation, which was established by JC Jacobsen in 1876, supports visionary and innovative basic scientific research in natural sciences, social sciences and humanities.

    The Little Mermaid should have a burqua on her head to conform with the new multiculturalism standards.

    Now, although it would seem incredible to the PC mass, and to the normies, yes, the swastika was used everywhere, even before Hitler chose it as the symbol for his party…
    Off-topic:
    Viking, do you remember when we tried to access Stormfront and it didn’t work? Well, just look at this set of instructions from the Roper Report…
    https://theroperreportsite.wordpress.com/2017/09/20/how-to-get-to-stormfront/
    Read searingreverie’s comment. It mentions something that is crucial to make these instructions work.
    Make sure that the .hosts file is not set to read-only, or it will save the changes to a hosts.txt file instead, thus not letting you access SF. I did what he/she says, and I could get in.
    People are posting there, so it works. Also, do not forget to execute Notepad as an administrator, or it won’t let you save the changes (learned that the hard way, lol).

        You are welcome.
        Did they work, right? Remember to uncheck the read only attribute of the .hosts file, or it won’t work at all.
        This cannot be repeated often enough. It’s crucial.

        Thanks.
        I am glad to help. The commenter searingreverie pretty much figured it out. Since we were modifiying that ersatz hosts.txt file, nothing would work.
        After you are done modifiying the .hosts file, and after you know that SF can be accessed, set again the read-only attribute on it. Windows probably sets the read-only attribute on the .hosts file for something.

        I did last night, and it worked. Just make sure you have unchecked the read only attribute of the .hosts file. It’s something that the original set of directions doesn’t mention, but is key to make them work.

        Same here. Just wanna help.
        DS is on the surface web at an Iceland domain.
        I wonder if Anglin considered seriously the purchase/register of a .tk domain…
        Tokelau seems to take almost everything. Although it would be too much heat for them, probably.

      Maybe, all this (technologic stuff) is more or less new to me.
      This kind of censorship is something new, too. Like a historical thing, we dont know the outcome off.
      They really want to shut us down and remove our freedom of speech.

        Indeed, they want to shut us down. They also know that their castle of lies is crumbling pretty much, and are scared that “normies” might find out the truth… Maybe the older generations are more indoctrinated, but the younger ones are not so much (or at least, have less years of conditioning, thus making them break the brainwashing more easily).
        We are still a minority, but we are a minority that is growing fast… That’s why we face censorship and threats.
