D’ya think ANTIFA might be a trap?

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. 50587

Founding Fathers dumped Bill of Rights

Religious freedom was passed by popular vote but only after the Official Founding Fathers rejected the entire Bill of Rights, which is why they (ten out of 13, not complete) are the first Amendments to the constitution. Now we have neo-fascist pigs like , well, the entire Republican party wanting to make Muslims wear identification, be registered and monitored like Megan's Law, all dark skinned persons denied immigrant or refugee status etc. 46459

OMG. Trump is not the Fourth Reich. You are!

The face of American Fascism is ugly ugly ugly, by art deco spiffy uniform standards. To pluralist, multicultural tastes, it's warm and fuzzy. You probably find it palatable, you don't mind it telling you why we must settle for war, poverty and injustice. You recoil in fear when its faces tell you that Donald Trump is Fascism on the rise. American Fascism has been in high gear since consolidating everyone else's trading monoplies, resources, and colonies. It began with the Louisiana Purchase and lept from the continent gobbling Spain's former possessions. Our Veterans of Foreign Wars were the Nazis before the Nazis. Instead of targeting the Jews, the scope of Western genocide has been much broader. Today our Mandarins have friendly faces but their final solution is merciless and straddles the planet. On their domestic list are the homeless, the healthcare-less, the zero-stakeholders, essentialy the 99 percent. Internationally it's everybody who doesn't serve a purpose, for example, refugees. If you are complicit in this exceptionalism, you are the "Fourth Reich" everyone is warning you about. Donald Trump is an egomaniac with a Napoleon complex. Maybe he wants to liberate the common people from the old guard, cut the purses

Recognize the face? Benito Netanyahu.

You've seen that blustery fascist before. Blimp-necked, stone-faced. As Zionist war criminal Benyamin Netanyahu struts from one warmonger venue to another, isn't he the spitting image of a much reviled sociopath of another era? Same first name approximately, same mission. Racism, war and genocide.

Yet another Fascist Pope for the Catholics

... It really is no surprise, but the Vatican has picked yet another Fascist Pope who tries to hide it away in the closet of time. Anybody who was a member of the Argentinian Catholic clergy during the years of Argentina's military dictatorship knew exactly what was going on and was complicit with it if they did not speak out. Bergoglio is the perfect guy to follow up the Pope Rat, who himself was a Nazi youth before he ascended up through the disgusting Catholic Church. Bergoglio did not speak up as the Argentinian generals and military officer corps tortured and murdered political prisoners while stealing away their newborn babies. He has not spoken up after the generals fall from grace either. So we get yet another fascist creep as top head in Rome!

Fascism on the Colorado State Seal

That's Fascism on the Colorado State Seal. Seriously, not just "a" symbol of fascism but THE defining symbol, on the state ID, badges and vehicles. On the signs on state offices, parks, the arm patches of uniforms and on letterheads. Just below the gap between "OF" and "COLORADO" at top center is the Eye of Horus, the Egyptian/Coptic/Masonic symbol. That's the symbol another fellow was showing me when my eye was caught by the one just under it. I had seen much smaller pictures and had thought it to be a calumet "peace pipe." Instead it's an Estruscan/Roman battle axe, with fascia, other rods fastened around the handle for reinforcement (like a splint) and to make the business end heavier, more mass for a more solid strike. 36345

Prominent Fascist Leader Silvio Berlusconi resigns…

All the scandals? Maybe? Probably not, the Italian people have historically supported some of the most heinous rapists, murderers and other criminals imaginable. So maybe it was getting hit upside the head with a church that finally, (after what, 3 years?) convinced the old War Criminal/slash/babykiller/rapist to give it up. Which is literally what Massimo Tartaglio did, hit him with a model of a cathedral right square in his lyin' mouth. So long, Silvio! See you in the funny papers! (in your case, the obituaries...)

Another FOX brainwash session

They're reporting the mine collapse in China as being a failure of the Communist economic system, and just not pointing out that it's CAPITALIST deregulation that caused it, just like the mine collapses in New Zealand, Chile, Peru, West Virginia.... and the Deepwater Horizon oil rig in the Gulf Oil spill Massive Petroleum Hemorrhage were caused by the POP principle. Profits Over People. The difference is that in China the Death Penalty applies to murder by Corporation. The CEO of the Chinese mine is likely to become an unwilling organ donor. Don L Blankenship, the Retired CEO of Massey Energy, who created 29 job openings with one (predictable AND predicted) reaction to defiance of existing regulations, will continue to be a multi-millionaire and will continue to donate to Right Wing Causes like, loosening regulations even further... so he can KILL more miners, Oil workers, factory workers, construction workers, farm workers, unlike himself REAL workers, and feast on the proceeds of their life and death. Those who like myself are merely crippled by their policies will be discarded, jailed, treated as psychotics and criminals and, if the plans of Blankenship and his allies, and their political appointees, to buy the entire governance

Shock and Awe, Oderint Dum Metuant and the term 1%

It finally occurred to me why I had so much difficulty with the term "1%" as applied to Banksters. It's a biker term. Someone in the late 50s, a motorcycle enthusiast magazine, had said "99 percent of all motorcycle riders are decent, honest law abiding citizens" (very true) and it was a response to a growing distrust of motorcyclists by the general public. Probably fed to the public by propaganda because the Wall Street types would make more money selling people cars than bikes. So a lot of the Sonny Barger types (he was president of the Hells Angels) took to tattooing "1%" on their forearms where it would be really prominent. Some undoubtedly were and are Billy. You know Billy, right? Billy the Badass? Some had never met Billy and others had met Billy and got their lunch money taken and sent home crying. Menacing glares and display of anger can be faked and your average citizen wouldn't be able to tell the difference. Me, I ride because I enjoy it, and to get from one place to another in a reasonable amount of time. Never gave a crap about the Leader of the Pack attitude. Although I heard

Bank of America to Americans: “You gonna be our bitch”

Yes, our old friends who took a billion dollar gift from America, paid no taxes... Got us again. Seems they're going to make the consumers pay for regulations which prevented them from unannounced and hidden fees. The smug perfectly manicured bastard interviewed by NBC news said: "People should complain to their congressmen" because Congress told them they're not allowed to steal (sometimes not allowed) from us and thus they "lost" MONEY THE THIEVING BASTARDS DIDN'T ALREADY HAVE, IT WAS STILL OUR MONEY AND THEY WERE PROHIBITED FROM STEALING IT. Yes, by those calculations, anybody who buys a watchdog or installs a burglar alarm Owes The Burglars Compensation. The Smiling Smug with the hands that never touched a shovel said "Well, somebody's got to make up the cash, it's just going to have to be the Consumers" .. Like he ever gave two shits about the well being of consumers. Watch as they give out another billion in year end bonus payments, and sneer at us Mere Peasants who dare to believe we shouldn't be ripped off. And they wonder why people throw airplanes at their buildings. 27860

More on the Anti-Muslim, Anti-Jewish, Anti-Christian 9/11 memorial hate-fest

One of the things that's being done in many places around the nation, even in churches and synagogues, is to have the children of the congregation, many as young as two, stand up and parrot the empty words of the Pledge of Allegiance and no, that isn't photoshopped, those are real American Kids chanting words they didn't understand to a graven image.   Right after the "attack" which is avowed as The Official Story Being True, (But the officials who tell the story also said that there were WMDs in Iraq and the Wars are about "freedom"... so, where do the lies end?) children in schools across the land supposedly came up with the idea, with no coaching from their parents or teachers, to have a synchronized chanting of the Pledge. As a show of "patriotism". Kids who don't know what death is, or any of the myriad twists and turns of the lies needed to start and sustain wars... told by their teachers to do this, and to lie to the world and say it was their own idea. And if they didn't, they were "terrorists". Now, who could find any fault with that? How about maybe GOD? The

Robot Workers

There's a commercial for a well known insurance company that has a woman saying "To save money I enrolled my kids in a day care center run by robots"   And one for a hamburger chain which has a robot trying to eat one of their sandwiches "Machines can't eat them, machines shouldn't make them". Noble sentiments that, but for the fact that an auto insurer and fellow earth-rapists like a Fast Food restaurant really aren't doing much for humanity or the rest of the species on the planet either. Like self-checkout machines at stores. Designed to maximize profits by simply not paying humans. Some of them, like the ones at WalMart, go even further and bitch at you if you don't scan or put money in fast enough. Service With A Snarl. 26453

ACLU and Shepard Fairey drape Lady Liberty in nationalism & jingo-freedom

Is "Freedom" the same thing as Liberty? Let's see, ACFU? It has an unfriendly ring to it.   The American Civil Liberties Union commissioned this fundraising magnet from halftone-deaf one-note Obamartist Shepard Fairey, but somebody confused this for a Department Of Defense contract. "Leading Freedom Forward"? That's USA's imperialist catchphrase! Please note at the helm is Fairey's first client: Obama. 25129

Uncle Sam wants you to pledge you’ll only resist his violence nonviolently

At Juneteenth this weekend, I saw the local Justice & Peace table being manned by young graduates of its "Peace Camp." I resisted asking them if their religio- pacifist training was being extended to corporations and oligarchs, or was nonviolence a prohibition for just them, the social-justice-minded, idealistic youth? How convenient for an increasingly deaf leadership to require that even the most desperate, urgent protestations remain toothless.

Carlos Santana booed at Racist Atlanta “Civil Rights” baseball celebration

For pointing out that Georgia's Arizona style "show your papers law" is Racist. He was supposed to be the Token Mex for MLB. But he just AIN'T gonna be somebody's Stepin Fetchit. And of course it's not about Racism. I mean, when La Migra threw down on me with machine guns, while dressed like a Salvadoran Death Squad, and then very snottily told me that it was MY fault because I "looked Mex"... no, I don't. Mexican is not any race, there are all of the so called "races" of the world in Mexico, Chinese-descended Mexicans, IRISH descendants, even Jewish Mexicans. What I "look" is American Indian from the Cherokee side of the family. 24421

What’s wrong with privatizing public resources? Quite a lot, actually…

(Editor's note: Some Colorado Springs councilmen don't see anything wrong with leasing public assets for private profit. Is there anything wrong with that?)   Well, let's see. The City Council is so top heavy with Real Estate Brokers including Princess Barbie Czeladtko, and Tim Leigh, and if they get their Fascist way fellow Realtor Steve Bach as "strong mayor" who all ran on money donated by people who favor privatizing ALL public lands, from the BLM lands to the Indian Reservations to the National Parks, National Forests and... city and county parks. How would they do that without a conflict of interest? It seems they're throwing City Funds straight to their own businesses. Then there's an Issue Princess Barbie and a few of her friends (if self-absolbed Princesses HAVE "friends") blaming the drastic fall of real estate value on the visibility of poverty. 23999

The US favors me over Democracy. Who am I?

I imprison without charges, I torture, I assassinate, I overlook police brutality, I kill foreign journalists, I kill innocent civilians, I lie about how many. I spy on my people, I violate civil liberties, I impose emergency law, I persuade with propaganda of a complicit state media, I preside over a despised single party system, I rule with military might, I ally with tyrants & racists, I steal from the people, I provide for my cronies, I ignore public protest, I promise meaningful reform, when I have to, I deliver meaningless. Who am I? 22741

Now the shitkicker is on the other foot, will Bush Doctrine suffer?

This story is from the Yakima Herald: "YAKIMA, Wash. -- Wyatt McNulty was listening to country music and waiting for a friend in the parking lot of the Social Security Administration building Monday morning when the magazine popped out of the gun concealed in his waistband." OK, that's the setup. For clarity, here's a synopsis of the story. So, the gun he says he keeps unloaded but had a clip in it, he drops the clip.. then reloads...In front of a Federal Building. He's "like, what the heck?" that people would be frightened by a redneck, listening to Country Music in a pickup and packing unloaded heat at a Federal Building... or why anybody would call in armed reinforcements when they observe somebody popping a clip into an automatic weapon... Hello? Don't the words Waco, Oklahoma City, Tucson, Lone Wolf "misfits" conjure up ANY images, any thoughts in that massive airspace between your brain and your ears? 22437

Berlusconi gets another church thrown at him…

Only this time it's the actual Pope getting in his face, rather than a statue of a church. About having relations with a teen prostitute. He dismissed the accusation as Politically Motivated and vowed to punish the magistrates. "I Am Your Emperor, Obey Me!! (paraphrase, because he's not going to stand up to the REAL Empire anytime soon)   Not looking good for Silvio. Seems a bit snotty to say that about him, but there's something about His Merciless Majesty that just doesn't inspire kind thoughts. I just would a heap rather they throw war crimes charges against him.

Speaking of Nicaragua…

The Artist, formerly known as School of the Americas, THE largest and best funded State-sponsored Terrorist Training Camp in the world, whose alumni include some of Colorado Springs cops, (as I understand, some of the "Homeless Outhrach" officers) used some of the Trainee Terrorists to disperse and arrest and beat down peaceful protesters at their "school" last week. You know, give the cadets a little first hand experience at beating down civilians. Kind of like these guys. Real Freedom Fighters there. They fight freedom whenever it rears its lovely head. Then, far from being embarrassed at their outrageous lies about fighting for Freedom, they instead send one of their number to make retarded comments about anybody who, unlike him or his FELLOW SCUMSUCKING PIGS, keep the memory alive. What's the matter, PIGS, Can't handle it when people point out your lies and hypocrisy, you have to send a puke like Stephen Patch in to talk smack? Or have the ACLU put down like mad dogs for not joining in with the Pigloving Sucks who applaud the actions of the Fascist Storm Troopers. 20628

Here’s an interesting challenge.

Since the Republican't Party is taking their senate still-minority, and running it up as a National Mandate to repeal Health Care, why not have a two-part challenge. For the Democrats, have a lame duck vote and put the public option in to Health Care right where it belonged all along. You'd get back the independent voters who stayed away in droves. For the Republicans and TeaBags, first, you're complete idiots. As evidenced by your Twitter hero who tweeted thus: "We should do to LIBERALS what Hitler did to the JEWS, give them a chance to RENOUNCE Liberalism, if they do not, send them to ovens-PatInMichigan" See, we try not to call y'all a bunch of Nazis, then you let a Jackass like that who is One Of Your Own, call you Nazis who have a strong desire to Kill Your Fellow Americans. Even though you have a cop-out you've already played again and again, that anybody who doesn't agree with your Whore of Babylon Palin is "not a REAL American". Which shows the depth of both your hatred and stupidity. The challenge for YOUR party would be along the lines of, either YOU take out YOUR (he's white too but that's just a coincidence, right?) Trash

How come Pottery Barn rules don’t apply to Haiti?

When Tony posted nearly three years ago (!) about how shocking conditions in Haiti had become, it was a magnet for people saying the starving kids pictures (from Medicins sans frontiers, internationally respected medical aid agency, just not so much here in America) were recycled pictures from Ethiopia 3, 2 and one decade ago. Then when that was refuted, and before they raised that Stupid Response again, the people of Haiti were blamed for their own misfortunes. As though their LEADERS had actually been empowered by popular vote instead of installed, against the expressed will of the People, by and for the profit of American Corporate Hegemony. Alternating with French Hegemony until the AmeriCorp bought out the French. We broke it, we supposedly bought it, right? That's the one of the irRationale for staying in Iraq and Afghanistan. (rationale is both plural and single, I checked, you didn't, kiss off) Of course, it's not the American Corporations who are Paying the bills "we" ran up by breaking all the pottery, although they seem to be getting quite a lot of public funding to manipulate the Public Army and the Public intelligence community and the public "rebuilding" campaign, which mostly consists of taking

Libertarian me-first values exemplified by face-stomping teabag Brownshirts

Move over RNC Kicker, Rand Paul preemptive-linebackers Tim Profitt and cohort Mike Pezzano have been identified as the "lead stomper" and protester-wrangler of yesterday's face-stomping video. MoveOn activist Lauren Valle was holding a sign meant to highlight Kentucky senate candidate Paul's corporate fealty when she was tackled to the ground by the teabag duo. Profitt's index finger pronounced, as he stepped off atop her head, that he meant the girl to read his Tea Party button literally: Don't Tread on ME. 20376

Tennessee Fire-Non-Fighters and the Bible

The language used by the fire-non-fighter is heavily ingrained indoctrination. There's a movement with some familiar names on the letterheads, spokesfreaks not leaders, Beck, Hannity, O'Reilly, Malkin... people whose ambitions are to create an American Sha'ariah based on their own interpretation of the Word. Or more importantly how the words of the Word get translated into English. They believe that somehow King James was a Liberal. Rather than the really vicious killer he was, and point to speculations on his sexuality, which really doesn't make three quarters of a fat rats ass. The dude was a killer, that trumps any other social or moral consideration you could think of. But the contention is that the Shakespearian English, and they toss in the "Shakespeare was queer, you know" wink wink nudge nudge low-flying canard as evidence, used in the KJV 1611 was "effeminate". Oh, he's a lumberjack, he's okay. (so gay?) And they're actually Re-Writing the Bible to reflect what they think it should be. Nothing new there. Even by their own admission. Many of them cite the "Thou shalt not Kill" commandment, saying that "They" meaning, not the person speaking who is as ignorant of who "They"
