Last October, under pressure from the U.S. government, the Norwegian police shut down the satirical anti-Bush Web site, which was run by Norwegian communist rap group Gatas Parlament, and which asked readers for donations to help hire an assassin to kill President Bush. The group's inflammatory video, "Kill Him Now," banned in Norway, can now be viewed here courtesy of The video, presented as a fake newscast, is more amusing than disturbing, especially when the anchor breaks into rap. Considering all the hoopla, it's really pretty mild, mostly a lot of dancing newscasters exhorting you to "dance against the Americans" and burn the flag. The song? I hope it's more fun to listen to if you understand Norwegian.
