Wade Michael Page, made by the US military

Wade Michael Page is the loser trained in the US military who went into the Sikh temple in Wisconsin killing innocent people. Where did he learn his hate from? Page served as a psychological operations specialist in the US Army from April 1992 to October 1998. Before he left the Army at the rank of specialist, he had received five Army Achievement Medals, two Army Good Conduct medals, and an Army Commendation Medal.


Woody Guthrie at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade!

Actually, his son Arlo. Now, usually on Thanksgiving we hear Arlo’s “Alices Restaurant”. Which is a good song sung for a good cause, the Alices Restaurant Anti-Massacre Movement.
Unlike a parade at which he sang the song in 1968, in Chicago, and a parade in Colorado Springs where the music was all militaristic, even the Al Khaly Shrine band playing God Save the Queen, the British National Anthem at a St Paddies’ parade, with Royal Marines marching in the band, where neither Arlo, his most excellent music or really any radical ideals were expressed, (save for the Military theme of “We get to go to exotic lands, meet interesting people, and kill them in order to take those exotic lands”)
The Macy’s Parade wasn’t interrupted by Uniformed Thugs beating up Americans for daring to say that peace is better than murdering people.
And his song at the Macy’s parade? One of his fathers songs. “This land is made for you and me” which Right Wing Media Lunatic Beck makes a huge Hysterical Anti-Leftist Spasm about, because the song expresses a Communist principle that the land does NOT belong exclusively to the Wealthy. Especially since every square inch of what is now defined as the United States was taken at gunpoint from the original owners, and those who refused, were slaughtered, along with their families. Including the Babies. At public expense and for the immediate and long term benefit of the Very Rich. The ones Beck represents. And his TeaBag fake revolutionaries
Unlike the marchers at the St Paddies Parade, unlike the marchers at the Democratic Convention 68, unlike Woody Guthrie, Gleen Beck and his Fascist Fellow Travelers in the Tea Party, not a single TeaBag has EVER been prevented from speaking, forced to the ground or had his face hit with club or Taser or Police Jackboot, the TeaBags have NEVER been gassed or had the PIGS ride into their midst on horseback swing clubs and busting skulls, even though they advocate KILLING Americans. Chickenshit fake-revolutionary PUKES have the full backing of the PIG establishment. Really BRAVE of them.

TSA and Pentagoons play same lame blame game

TSA of course saying that people being angry about their Neo-Gestapo (betcha thought I was gonna say “nazi” huh?) thug tactics would cause delays.
And not their Thuggish heavy-handed State-Sponsored Terrorism. The people, you see, have no right to resent being treated as criminals with no evidence. Guilty until proven innocent.
Then blame anybody who acts any way non-docile or non-subservient for the punishment THEY, the Gesta errrr… Noble Defenders of freedom CHOOSE to inflict on other people. There’s a counter-terrorism standard employed and enjoyed by every dictatorship, including the U.S. Military “free” puppet governments, (not just the Nazis, although they’re the ones most famous for it) where they would round up local civilians in areas where a “terrorist” attack had occurred and simply execute some of them, and made sure to tell the survivors to blame it on the actions of the Resistance Fighters.
That’s the TSA tactic. Also, the Pentagon/State Department Gesta tactic for dealing with Wikileaks. Kill the messenger. Never mind that it’s not the REVELATION of their many murders and miscellaneous misdemeanors, mayhem and malicious malfeasance that’s caused their shared TSA/DoD/DoS/DoJ problems.
It’s the actual commission of their multiple misdeeds that caused the problem. If they didn’t want the name surely it would have been easier to avoid that by not playing the game.
The best way to avoid gaining an undesirable reputation as a Babykiller is simply not actually killing babies.

Blaming 9/11 on the Qu’ran is like blaming the Civil War on Slaves

Or blaming the Crucifixion on Judaism. In other words, bullshit.
But I do know people who are Southern, Christian, White… like the Pastor in Florida… who actually DO blame Judaism for the Passion and who blame the Civil War not on Slavery, but on the slaves themselves.
So go ahead, Pastor, get your Ignorant Damn Bigoted Ku Klux TeaTard “christian warrior” MORONS all frothing at the mouth, burning books, maybe you’ll convince some of the stupid bastards to lynch people for you. AMERICANS whether you or your IDIOT Party have enough courage to allow us the title, or even admit that we and all your other HATE SPEECH targets are Human Beings.
Tell the Bloodthirsty Mob that GOD, Himself, Ordained you to tell them to go out and Burn, destroy and above all KILL in His name. You’ve already gotten your Demented Disciples to burn a community center in Murfreesboro Tennessee, your Rabid Leaders Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck have incited at least one Racist Bigotry Inspired Murder in the past two weeks. A cab driver who didn’t grovel to the Haters and beg their forgiveness for something done by somebody else.
YOU, Pastor, and your Hate Speech Comrades like Palin, Beck, Limbaugh, Malkin, Geller, Ollie North, Gunny Bob Newman, are guilty by your own standard of judgment.
YOU condemn a Billion people on the basis that they shared the same religion with people accused of murder. People, who unlike YOU and YOUR Killer Koward Komrades on FOX and Hate-Speech Radio, did NOT actively incite or inflame or even support the bombing of the idolatrous Temple of Monetary Imperialism.

Uzi Landau doesn’t steal Palestinian homes because there is no such thing

Dr. Uzi Landau speaks to University of Colorado Denver, October 28
DENVER- Israeli PR envoy Uzi Landau addressed CU Denver students today, the majority of whom were antagonistic to his message. Denver policemen lined the walls, altar and choir loft, as Landau went on about the mortal threat which “extremist” Islam poses to Judeo-Christian civilization. Landau likened Iran to Nazi Germany and Ahmadinejad to Hitler, but had no comparison for the nefarious and subversive terror plots which Iran has been foisting on the free world. I’m thinking perhaps, like the CIA or Mossad?

Armed UAS drones need no defending

Predator Unmanned Attack VehicleI was curious about the etymology of the term “drone” applied to military (& DHS) Unmanned Aerial Surveillance aircraft, these days, mostly Armed. Obviously Armed UAS are not named after the stingless unproductive bees whose task it is to impregnate the queen, nor lazy idlers, nor clueless computer sales techies, nor thankless menial worker drones. Anyone who’s been around Radio Controlled model planes knows drones are named for the sound they make, a steady drone as they labor across the sky. While military aerial surveillance predates the Wright Brothers, and RC model airplanes have been around for half that time, it took the advent of asymmetric warfare to open the window to military drones. Their constant buzz offering the most intractable reason.

“Not hate, Heritage” and other lies.

Speaking of course, of the Confederate Battle Flag. The “Southern Cross”. Rejected as a candidate for the United States Flag due to its Religious implications (two of the three crosses on the flag, the cross of St Andrew and the cross of St Patrick, half of the four crosses on the Union Jack British flag) being very uncomfortable reminders of the Christian-on-Christian multi-million counts of Murder which led directly in to the Revolution, and in the confusion of battle and especially the thick smoke from black-powder muskets, pistols, rifles and cannon it looked too much like British regimental flags.

Company wolves in nonpartisan clothing

Would you believe it? Not My Tribe is “nonpartisan!” We favor neither Republican or Democrat, although current usage presumes you are of course one or the other, it’s just that you’ve agreed not to show bias. Nonpartisan is not “non-aligned.” It does not mean you are neither. Nonpartisan has become more like “nondenominational.” Which means not of a specific religious adherence, but certainly belonging to one of them. And like nondenominational, isn’t it a ruse?

US extrajudicial reach extends to assassination of spouses and progeny

In a demonstration that they are closing in on Pakistani Taliban chief Baitullah Mehsud, the US military is claiming success with a drone attack on his father-in-law’s Waziristan home, where a missile killed Mehsud’s second wife, three unidentified civilians, and wounded four children.

Two Right Wing Talking Points from Shooter von Brunn

This makes three that failed in their attempts to suicide themselves to Right-Wing-Glory, worshipped by the American Taliban as fallen martyrs… but in the case of Adkinsson, Church Shooter who was aiming to shoot the children on stage when the gun was finally wrestled away from him, and von Brunn, and not a coincidence The Same Shit KVOR talk radio puts out, President Obamas birth certificate and George Bitch’s non-existent service record.

Anti-Zionism 4D: Defining Demonization Double Standards and Delegitimization

The word “nutritious” defines a food quality that provides sustenance. I’ve no doubt as skepticism grows about the likely poisonous aspects of refined sugar and High Fructose Corn Syrup, the corporate sugar-water purveyors will append “satiates your subliminal impulses” to the meaning of nutritious. Who safeguards our dictionaries from authoritarians who profit from reweaving the fabric of knowledge we consider inviolate?

You told them to leave and if any of their children now get in the way, you have washed yourself of all their blood in responsibility, now haven’t you Mr. First Black President?

UCSB Hillel students Rebecca Joseph, Tova Hausman highlight poor education

Charges against Professor William RobinsonToday’s university campuses have to deal with College Republicans, ACTA and NeoMcCarthyists. The latest uneducable creeps shopped their leftist-professor- horror-story to the Anti-Defamation League, to brand their teacher’s criticism of Israel as “anti-Semitic.” UCSB senior Rebecca Joseph and junior Tova Hausman both took exception to Professor William Robinson’s Sociology Listserv email comparing Israel’s mop up operation in Gaza to the Warsaw Ghetto. Below are the words they cut and pasted together to accuse Robinson.

UCSB Prof William Robinson pro-Semite

Putting down the Warsaw Ghetto uprising
Wouldn’t you think it bad form for Israeli militants to behave like Nazis, while immunizing themselves with the self-righteous indignation that any criticism of their actions can simply be dismissed as “anti-Semitic?” Photographs and confessions emerging from the IDF’s atrocities in Gaza just beg comparison the German Einsatzgruppen in Poland. Earlier this year UC Santa Barbara professor William Robinson forwarded an email photo essay to a UCSB listserv, the already much-circulated side by side comparison to the WWII atrocities. Two students complained, plagiarizing stock IDF lingo. Now the Anti-Defamation League wants Robinson to recant. With IDF propagandists pouring on the bullshit, let’s revisit the documents.

Cheney and other Perverted Torture Freak Scum…

There’s a standard, a psychological finding used to determine
when somebody is a serial killer, and determine whether he is
worthy of the death penalty.
The prosecution doesn’t actually NEED it in many cases, but they
always do the testing and make the determination.

Canada welcomes Bush, bars Galloway

Canada refused to bar entry to Ex-president George Bush, then declined calls for his arrest for war crimes and prevented attempts by others to make citizen’s arrests. But in the same breath, Canada denied entry to a prominent antiwar voice, British MP George Galloway, because HE was infandous. Clearly they have no standard at all.
