NFL, NBA, MLB ordered by Trump to fire all employees who protest, Teams said “NO”

And man is it ever got the WingNuts screaming. tRump told everybody it’s an affront to the soldiers. This from a man who was a Draft Dodger and War Profiteer (what does anybody expect? He’s a thief and the Military Industrial Complex has huge piles of unguarded taxpayer money laying around) and so was his equally worthless Dodger Profiteer daddy. Only reason his kids aren’t dodgers is because Ford abolished the Draft in 1975. I would say that making money from other people dying is a real affront to the soldiers. And their Families. OK, Everybody …  LeBron James refused a visit to the White House and instead of being a propanda token he told Trump NO and added “it was always an honor being invited to the White House until you came along” The ChickenHawks are trolling every forum on the internet, nothing new there, but these dudes who Trumpf says aren’t racist are sure using the N word about it. And exclaiming large resentment and envy because Black people actually have jobs in the NBA mostly because the black dudes in question learned the sport and became very proficient Practice does that. Like the name-calling titty babies who infest the Republican party, they’ve been practicing to blame Blacks, Latins, Jews etc for their own failures. Somebody who wants a job in a restaurant, or some other job where every employee is a salesperson… and has been openly bigoted toward, say, Hispanic, who speak spanish even though they also speak english thus are Bilingual… puts in his/her application and comes back later and somebody else had the job. Somebody with a typically dark face who is bilingual. So the person starts resenting what obviously is Affirmative Action and the Mexican stole the job the bigot didn’t have in the first place. This happens a lot. But hey, why not analyze the situation. Logically.

Trump conjures COVFEFE, Kim Jong-Un coins DOTARD. Who’s the madman?

Turns out much-maligned bad guy Kim Jong-Un has upped the Western media’s very best efforts to lampoon our imbecile madman-in-chief. Is North Korea’s dictator an immature despotic bumbling statesman? Hardly. What happened the last time the US accused an adversary of having nuclear weapons, then make them disarm until they hadn’t so much as a SCUD left? Once fully de-horned, we invade them. Rivals to US hegemony have only one option. Kim Jong-Un’s.


Not The People v. Stephen Nalty and Steven Blyfield. Right to an Unfair Trial.

Paper Terrorists Tried in Juvenile Court
DENVER, COLORADO— The trial of accused “Paper Terrorists” Stephen Nalty and Steve Blyfield began Monday in courtroom 2H of Denver district court. The two face 28 odd charges, from conspiracy, criminal enterprise, to racketeering, brought by the Colorado Attorney General and the FBI, and they’re defending themselves. In handcuffs. Don’t worry, they’re holding their own. But already it’s day one and authorities are piling on every disadvantage. On Monday the defendants were cheated of being able to prevent the state from stacking the jury (and they don’t even know it).

Denver magistrate separates mother from breastfeeding infant. Jail refuses pump, as they do common decency.


DENVER, COLORADO- A heartbreaking scene unfolded yesterday when Denver Magistrate Kate Boland decided to impose a $10,000 bond on a domestic violence detainee, against the recommendations of the husband (victim), the public defender, and even the city prosecutor, who all wanted the 35-yr-old mother of five released on personal recognizance. Most critical, no consideration was paid to the family’s month-old infant who is breastfeeding. Neither by Boland, nor the downtown detention center, known for its systemic disrespect for the rights and needs of its inmates.

This is one of their core beliefs…

Can’t testify about what the Odinist religious services would be like.  Not even curious. But there are people who use Christianity, with and mostly without scriptural authority. Hey, if you’re blaspheming you might as well go the whole courrse, right? It’s insidious rather than raw naked hatred. Fear and hatred walk hand in hand though. You might not have caught the nuanced phrases the Supremacists have been spewing about Not Being Replaced. They build their beliefs on many legs. One is that English ‘civilization’ is to replace any part of Hebraic beliefs. Islam, Judaism, Orthodox Churches, it goes on. That English as a separate RACE and blessed above all others and they believe the biblical promises to Isaac and Jacob and Moses have been translated to the English, and only the English. Get them talking about other European “races” and they’ll talk your ears off trying to explain it. They always seem so fervent, like they’re on acid or something. Nowadays Meth gets them on that road. But the next part is really scary and they teach it in churches to kids. The narrative is that Jazz, Swing, R&B and rock and roll is To Cast A Voodoo Spell On White English Kids To Bring Them Down To The Level Of The Negro. And this is to get Whites to not reproduce with Whites. I noticed the traces of it at the Juggalo rally at Washington DC this weekend. That being the multi-cultural fans of the band Insane Clown Posse. The White Supremacists who are flooding their hatred on every discussion forum on the Internet. Many of them are Artificial Intelligence Bots, which differ from the Limited Intelligence Human operators, only in the level of grammar and spelling. The Bots win. Their anti-gay agenda is built in the same way. And brings it “straight” back to their ‘suppression of English procreation’ FEAR. It’s the English version of le Tonton Macoute. A French boogieman. Southern U.S. French people, Creole and Acadien “cajun” people, some of them will give you a seemingly dope-crazed version of this and hasten to remind you they have English roots as well. They won’t be very coherent about it. There’s a lot of folk mythology like “why those Mixcans say they’re Injun but they’re not” and I’ll put it past the “read more” paragraph break.

Trashapocalypse at Standing Rock and other heinous lies

Remember the “trash” the Army and  Oil Company LIARS reported in January? The Weekly Standard, a FOX property, admitted the so-called Trash was mostly tents and other belongings the Army refused to allow the people to take away. The stupid FOX and Trump supporters believe everything they’re told.   I wanted to have something to bring to the feast than just a hearty appetite. So I started collecting statistics. About the ‘trash’ the Army used as propaganda, which I understand was tents, clothing, mostly. The army had set it up that nobody could just come and go at will, and the Supremacists ate it up as though it was facts. Stupid racists are like that.  I feel almost sorry for them.

Bobble-heads at FBI To Freddie Grey’s Family:Fuck off and die

Nothing new here, Murdering Pig Scum consistently back up their White Supremacist Murdering Coward Scum Comrades, like Trump giving a green light to the punks at Charlottesville, and pardoning his fellow Klansman Arpaio. Maybe he’ll pardon our local Klan Leader Terry Maketa.

Damned if this isn’t the funniest thing I saw today..


D’ya think ANTIFA might be a trap?

Black Bloc
By all means shout down the fascists. Shout down white supremicists. Bash the alt-right. Do it in black bloc, if you must (and yes we must). March on, against, and over, capitalism. Declare yourself anti-fascist. Express solidarity with ANTIFA protests and counterprotests across the country. I would rethink, however, opening an Antifa franchise without knowing who elsewhere can now act IN YOUR NAME.

Five former leaders of the free world say YOU should pay for disaster relief

Presidents Carter, Clinton, Obama, Bush, and Bush
THAT’S RIGHT. Five US ex-presidents, so-called most powerful men in the world, who each did their most to expropriate the public wealth for the super rich, who denied you healthcare, job security, infrastructure, a clean environment, even peace, every last POTUS son of a bitch, now think the rescue of America’s refinery capitol should be at your expense. Never mind that your taxes will already pay to rebuild Houston. These still-shilling salesmen-in-chief want whatever extra they can squeeze out of the American little person in the name of Christian Charity.


nine-eleven-zero-one, Corporate Pirates got hit

This started as a reply to a comment about the NFL and other Corporate Thieves ripping off America and demanding we show homage to their empire. Above and beyond the money the sports fanatics pay for their really stupid entertainment. Well, it’s a Hell of a racket. They’re trying to say now that it, worshipping an idol made of cloth by standing for the pledge and for the the anthem is ‘patriotism’ and refusing to do so dishonors ‘our’ troops which is pure bullshit. The owners of the sports leagues are the same ultra-rich asswipes who believe their stolen money makes them better than all others. Every war being fought by the Empire is a war of Corporate conquest. Like the piracy the Navy did in 2014 by commandeering a ship on the high seas, the Morning Glory oil tanker because the oil was owned by the parts of Libya not under Imperial Rule. The Corporates, as always, depended on the largess of the American Taxpayers, that’s anybody and everybody.

pledge allegiance to the flag of the Corporate state of Amerikkka

The NFL owners demand that players and fans alike comply with their brainwashing technique of training the people to act in unison at the cue of a musical intro. It’s Pavlovian Condition at it’s most basic, Slobber when the Good Doctor rings a bell and be rewarded with a doggy treat, fail to slobber when the O Say can You See bell is rang and you get punished. Classic. Mass Demonstrations with coordinated ritual actions teach GroupThink and total domination of their intellect by an Elitist Few. Football is a Corporate enterprise and you pay to go in to be trained like little puppy dogs. The owners of the teams have become the owners and Masters of the fan(atics) combined.


Michelle Malkin is back and still irrelevant.

She wants to be a Klan member but they won’t let her. But Michelle, babe, you just keep on going with your dreams. The Klan is as insignificant as you and soon they’ll want to let in just anybody, not just WHITE trash. By the way, sweetie, the English “Founders” came over with no papers, no permission from any of the Established nations and no intention of actually paying for the land they forbade us to ever use again. And proceeded to make all kinds of treaties which were broken by the English Immigrants as quickly as they were written and signed, … and proceeded to kill as many Americans as possible. We kind of resent that and your proclamation that everybody ask THEIR God-Damn permission to even exist in America, is bullshit.


Almost unbelievable hubris

Then there’s the OTHER massacres, genocide, the only nation in the world to have successfully used Nuclear, Chemical and Biological warfare, deliberately, (as opposed to the Spanish and Portuguese introduction of Measles, Bubonic plague, Chicken Pox and Smallpox, accidentally and because Europe at the time was filthy.) But we’re supposed to believe that God has been the one to blame for all of the crimes done in His name. As though the totality of people world-wide have done since the beginning isn’t enough, they’re at it AGAIN selling the “patriot cross”. The cross as in the instrument of MURDER used by the Roman Republicans to kill Jesus and a literally countless number of others. All of whom were created in the likeness of God. The reason the number is ‘countless’ is that the first ‘Christian’ Emperor of Rome not only had people crucified, and the marriage of Church and State blotted out HIS abominations and any that were committed by the Triple Lie “Holy Roman Empire”. And that’s just one murder weapon. How many children (literally) of the Living God are going to be roasted in a device called appropriately “Hellfire” missiles, today? Not counting yesterday and tomorrow, just today.

Trump restores program to give Pigs military murder weapons, and permission to kill Americans without due process

As though it wasn’t already happening. Any of the local Minutemen want to comment? Do you think you’ll be deputized like Arpaio and Maketa did?

I’m getting a bit mean-spirited by and toward my fellow americans

The ones who call themselves conservatives but are instead radicals. Just as a start. The ones who refer to anybody of non-European descent as “third world scum” and telling us to get out of “their” country. The ones who say that white americans and white europeans are supposedly superior and use stupid anecdotes like medical advances, technology of all kinds etc etc but none of the ones who bark like that actually has a patent, a doctorate, any advanced degrees of higher education, don’t speak english very well but insist that everybody else does, and by the way they don’t speak any other language, who use the made up words irregardless and nukular because a) they’re stupid and b) their leaders like anybody who’s a Bush family member are stupid too. The ones who bark about literary and musical achievements but have never published a book nor learned any instrument or music theory. The one in the white house who never wrote a book (no, really, somebody else wrote that “art of the deal” shit) and was a proud draft dodger but tries to make out that he’s a military genius. The one who calls any revelation of his wrongdoing and stupid as ‘fake news’ but has some holdings in the National Enquirer…. that’s the trigger for this rant by the way, supposedly Orenthal Simpson said after making parole he was going to get somebody, he’s next, that sort of shit. If he had he wouldn’t have gotten out the door. He has a passion for hating black folk but says he’s not a racist. And his disciples dutifully chant that over and over.


Maybe we can get some justice here

Terry Maketa, Jim Beicker of Fremont Co, (whose deputies murdered John Walter with his consent and permission and probably with a little hands-on assistance)Douglas “Tar Baby” Lamborn, maybe they can go to Federal Prison as accomplices and for Known Association with Felons like Joe Arpaio. They file charges like that often. Lamborn is grand wizard of the Heritage Foundation here in the Springs. And other terrorist organizations like the Minutemen. Including the Minutemen. One of their Klan accomplices in a previous murder just got executed in Florida, the first White man ever executed in 200 years for killing a black man in Florida. There has never been a policeman executed in the entire history of the United States. None. But they commit murder daily. In the streets and in the jails. And often torture the lynched men, women and CHILDREN who they murder. They become sexually aroused by any use of force and thus they’re raping the victims by killing them. There’s always a core group of Civilian Fascists who unfailingly provide the PIGS with excuses for their terroristic activities.


OK this is conclusive evidence the Right Wing will bark at ANYTHING

I looked on Yahoo about the eclipse. It’s true. The Trump Zombies were complaining about the eclipse and blaming Barack Obama. This is stupid of cosmic proportions. It’s official, the Stormfront Base for the Republican temporary victory, have completely lost their minds. I wondered, many times, would these emotionally stunted undereducated rednecks actually blame the Vast Liberal Conspiracy if it doesn’t rain or if it does rain, if the sun comes up in the east, if just any event far beyond the control of anybody or all of humanity collectively, these titty baby candy-ass professional complainers will find fault, not on the part of God or more importantly their social structure, of course. Maybe it’s that they themselves create their unhappiness over anything they don’t control? BLASPHEMY! Off with my head!
There’s another possibility. Maybe the trolls are actually bots programmed to respond to any writing on any subject.


At last a reasoned response in the Statues issue…

It’s a little bit flawed but it works. Robert E Lee could have made a few statements for Abolition and since he was wildly popular in the south it might have stopped the secessionists in their tracks. So I have a habit of posting my viewpoint on many forums. Like yahoo news. The New Confederacy is well represented there, usually very incoherent and really, on behalf of my white relatives, they should shut up and stop embarrassing everybody else who happens to be of the same complexion. And they bitch, whine and snivel that somehow yahoo is silencing and censoring them. I can’t tell… I guess some people see enemies everywhere. But this cat was a little more educated and less hate filled (I hope) and he responded to one of my posts.

So, what were they doing at the synagogue?

The nazi “protesters” in Charlotte, you know. They and their ridiculous president keep saying they were only ‘defending’ themselves when one of their Storm Troopers rammed a car into a crowd. Only defending themselves waving around assault rifles. So why did they also besiege the Synagogue, during shabbat services? What’s their excuse for that? I know that some can’t separate the government of Israel from Judaism, Jewish ethnicity and for that matter Crusaders. Let’s for fairness appearance add in whatever fringe movement within Islam, Zen, Buddhism, Tao, the 7 million gods of India (I have no idea about the exact number nor did the British author who first published it)…. But the nazi marchers went after a Synagogue which wasn’t part of their announced itinerary. And that wasn’t the only discrepancy of their post-hate crime explanation/slash/excuse.

Trump to anti-racism People: Fuck Off And Die

The Punk In Chief is considering pardoning Joe Arpaio. After a long investigation and proof, not just evidence, that he targeted darker skinned people for traffic stops and kangaroo court detentions, especially with his personal fetish for dressing male prisoners in pink panties, which would be a sex offense if a civilian did it. If a civilian so much as prevents another person to leave, restraining another person in any way, it’s kidnapping. Making the person perform degrading actions is an aggravating circumstance. Like forcing people to work for his corporate masters/accomplices and of course sexual harassment which doesn’t just border on rape, that’s a border he has no conscience about blowing past at 90 miles an hour. If he needs somebody to help him resolve his fetish for pink panties there are bars in Phoenix where he would probably get somebody to force him to wear pink panties. Instead he chooses to use government resources and abuse of power to beat down other human beings and essentially rape them. The Pig establishment, the kangaroo kourts at every level of “law enforcement”, actually took action to the civil rights abuse, a slap on the wrist for a much reduced charge. But he and fellow titty-baby Trump feel even that is too much. Neither of them could commit their crimes without a lot of backup, from racist retards like Back The Badge, the various Police unions and equally cowardly prosecutors, judges and congress”men”. This on the heels of Trump waffling about condemning the Nazi rally in Charlottesville. He’s been praising them with faint damns. To twist the words of The Bard. He tried to pull a fast one by condemning the people who opposed the blatant assault, terrorist threats and pure racism. Make no mistake, Joe Arpaio and his ilk, (Like Terry Maketa and Congress’man’ Doug Lamborn) are terrorists. They attempt to frighten people, to change social, religious and governmental institutions. Terrorism. al Qa’eda was never so prolific in promoting terrorism. That, and their sheep-like and probably sheep-raping supporters LIE to portray their actions as anything less than Terrorism. They’re criminals and should be treated as such.


Trump says he’s sorry we don’t condemn the storm troopers he sicced on us.

I made the title kind of sidewise because that’s what his condemnation of “all sides” looks and sounds.
Klansmen are the longest-running Terrorist group in America. Their Leaders, like Robert E Lee, were too cowardly to stand up for the rights of all humans, even slaves, to freedom. Lee didn’t denounce the Klan, didn’t denounce the slave codes which allowed the lazy plantation aristocrats to rape or even kill their ‘property’ laws prohibiting the slaves from being paid for their labor or to learn to read and write. They attacked schools first of all, and churches. Why? Because they were too lazy to learn anything. The Klan prey upon the fears of ignorant whites to this day, and their terrorism target saturday was another school, a University. Trump condemned the people who opposed that terrorism attempt right along with the terrorists. The terrorists who backed his election. The ones he quietly denied being his base. He lied then and he’s lying now.


The nazi terrorists are whining about nobody backing down to their threats.

Blaming everybody but themselves.  Pity the racist coward klansmen? Your organization is the most pervasive terrorist group in American history. Not only did your leaders, including Robert E Lee, have 300 thousand Union AMERICAN soldiers and 200 thousand Confederate AMERICAN soldiers slaughtered outright in an effort to keep Human Beings, AMERICAN human beings, in slavery forever. Your Klan founder Bedford-Forrest had prisoners of war slaughtered because of the color of their skin,at Ft Pillow MS who were fighting for their own freedom. You aren’t smart, moral or brave enough to allow freedom and equality and at this rally you wanted to terrorize people to keep supporting your hatred and terrorism forever. The People you chose to terrorize didn’t back down to your threats so you think of yourselves as victims. Grow up, grow some testicles, learn some manners and stop trying to threaten anybody who don’t agree with you. Stop being stupid.

Supremacists get resistance and then get violent, and still lose.

The stupid bastards actually thought that nobody would dare talk back to them.  Ever noticed the biggest mouthed elitists aren’t actually elite? They were marching against a school, college actually, just like always they go against education first.


Things to do for the Supremacist parade in Virginia

take pictures of the license plates. The cops already are doing that. Maybe steal their list. Maybe steal is the wrong term as we paid for it in the first damn place. Get a subscription to a information site, like spokeo. Trace their tags. Give all the addresses to criminals,  doesn’t much matter which races, who can go to their houses and steal everything they own, especially the watch dogs. To take a watch dog, you put sleeping pill powder in a squeeze bottle of butter. Squirt it on the dog where it would be easy to lick it off. The dog has an instinct to do exactly that. Take pictures of the purloined dogs and put up posters all over their neighborhoods. Saying “I’m retarded and somebody stole my guns, computer and watch dog while I was at a big Klan Rally to prove whites are superior. Come to my house and take everything that’s left because I’m stupid”
