Spain: Toy advertisements may no longer be pink or blue
In Catholic Spain, of all places, gender activists have won a new victory. Children's and babies' toys may now no longer be advertised in "gender-specific" colours such as pink and light blue. In Germany, woke parents are subjecting their children to the same grooming.

The umbrella organisation of Spanish toy manufacturers has committed to rules against gender-specific toy advertising vis-à-vis the left-wing government in Madrid. The two sides signed an agreement that for the first time explicitly bans the portrayal of girls in “discriminatory or derogatory” ways in advertising, according to the Ministry of Consumer Protection.
The aim is to “promote a pluralistic, egalitarian and stereotype-free image of minors”, the ministry wrote. Therefore, the portrayal of girls with gender-specific references would be banned. Advertising for toys related to personal hygiene, housework or beauty, for example, should not be aimed exclusively at girls, and those representing drive, physical activity or technology should not be aimed specifically at boys, it said.
The new code contains no less than 64 standards that are to apply to toy advertising in the future.
The “undesirable” messages signalling two genders must also not be incorporated into advertising by “implicit” references, such as the classic colours pink for girls and blue for boys. In addition, the advertising must be designed to be understandable to minors, and it must show what advantages the product could promote – such as creativity, physical and mental development, sociability and empathy.
Toy advertising will thus become “more egalitarian, honest and supportive”, claimed Consumer Protection Minister Alberto Garzón. This is important for the protection and development of children. “Sexist” advertising has been banned in Spain since 2004.
In a video published by his ministry in 2021, animated toy figures were seen calling for a “strike” to “eliminate sexism and gender roles”. In the video, two dolls – one female and one male – complained that toys were “pigeonholed” and claimed their right to play “with 100 percent of boys and girls”. At the end, they cry out for “equality”.
German public broadcasters go for grooming
In a video screened on Wednesday in Germany, the topic was: “Gender-neutral upbringing: is it good for children?” The reporter asked the young family at the breakfast table what it was like when the little girl chose her own gender-neutral name.
The little girl is silent, but the father’s enthusiasm for gender theories is given ample room. He speaks for his daughter: “You can contradict me, but Nova often says that Nova doesn’t want pronouns.” It is quite unlikely that a young child would understand “pronouns”.
But with such an attitude nowadays, one catapults oneself into the avant-garde of the woke elite. The “gender-fluid” educational grooming by her parents gives Nova the choice not to be a girl. She is instead faced with a passive-aggressive father who has imposed the time-consuming selection of genderless tights, pajamas, sweaters and pants as well as at least five versions of her name. Her mother even translates “queer” children’s books that deal with transsexuality into German for Nova.
Teacher: Nova is sometimes overwhelmed
The ARD and ZDF public broadcasting network is aimed specifically at young people between the ages of 14 and 29 with an annual tax-financed budget of 45 million euros. Their reporter must have guessed that a good report needs a critical voice. So he actually visited Nova’s kindergarten teacher Angela, who offered two minutes of reality.
The educator described how Nova was sometimes overwhelmed with decisions in the daycare center. “I am sure that children also need adult guidance, instruction and orientation.” Sometimes it is important “that someone says: Come on, that’s good for you, I decided that for you,” said Angela.
Regardless of whether Nova feels that she is a girl, her “gender-neutral” upbringing helps children who are transgender according to her parents. That is very important to the father, because “trans children have a really difficult childhood and youth and experience a lot of violence”.
The final word goes to Nova. When the reporter asked her what her favorite color was, the four-year-old replied, “Pink and pink!”

CLIMATEThe United States' government scientific organization, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), predicts zero sunspots from 2031 to 2040. This is an extreme situation that has not occurred in as long as humanity has been counting sunspots, and it leads us into uncharted territory in terms of our solar system. However, this prediction aligns with the warnings of the world-renowned solar researcher Valentina Zharkova for many years, who indicated in 2019 various signs of this catastrophic phenomenon, including the extreme hailstorms we have seen in Europe and the world this summer. The forecast and various observations this year give cause for very significant concern. In this unique analysis, Free West Media explains why.
EUROPEAN ELECTIONSOn Saturday, August 26, representatives of six European nationalist parties gathered in Budapest. The meeting was initiated by the Hungarian party Mi Hazánk and took place in the national parliament. Representatives of the parties signed a joint declaration that not only reaffirms the parties' friendship but also their unity on a range of complex political issues. A surprisingly clear and radical manifesto was established. The hope is that this cooperation will lead to success in the EU elections and eventually result in the formation of a group in the European Parliament. For Swedish nationalism, this meeting marks a success as Sweden, for the first time, has a party represented in a leading nationalist cooperation in Europe. Free West Media was present at this historic event.
Sweden will have to wait a bit longer for NATO membership, according to Turkey's Justice Minister Jilmaz Tunc. First, Sweden must extradite the "terrorists" Turkey wants and stop the desecration of the Quran.
The Russian attack helicopter Ka-52 is considered one of the world's best and has struck fear in Ukraine, where it has hunted down tanks and other armored vehicles, often beyond the range of many light anti-aircraft systems. However, it has met its match in the Swedish air defense missile system RBS 70, which has quickly led to significant losses for the Russian helicopter forces.
Alternative for Germany (AfD) held a party conference on July 29-30 to select candidates for the upcoming EU election next year. EU Parliament member Maximilian Krah, belonging to the party's more radical, ethnonationalist faction, was appointed as the top candidate. The party's two spokespersons delivered powerful speeches criticizing the EU's failed migration policy and trade sanctions that isolate Europe and Germany from the rest of the world. They argued that it's time for the EU to return a significant portion of its power to national parliaments. However, they have dropped the demand for Germany to exit the EU.
The rising popularity of AfD has raised strong concerns within the establishment. Despite lies and demonization in the media and isolation from the overall political establishment, the party continues to grow. Certain representatives of the party are accused of becoming increasingly "extreme," and in an unusual move, the influential weekly newspaper Der Spiegel demanded that AfD be "banned."

After a criminal complaint in Belgium against the President of the European Commission, the so-called SMS-case, now takes a new turn. The judge responsible for the investigation will likely gain access to the secret messages exchanged between Ursula von der Leyen and Albert Bourla, CEO of Pfizer, at least if they haven't been deleted.
Arktos has distinguished itself by publishing groundbreaking philosophers and social critics. Now, the publisher's international distributor has abruptly terminated the cooperation, and more than 400 already printed titles cannot reach their audience. There is strong evidence that the distributor has been under pressure, something that has also happened in Sweden. We have spoken with Arktos founder Daniel Friberg about the ongoing struggle for freedom of speech in a shrinking cultural corridor.
