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.

Woody had this sign he would paint on his guatar or printed up on paper and glued to it,

For a long time I’ve been engraving this message on my flutes, (descant Recorders, actually)

In tribute to a man loved by the people and hated by the Fascists, like Beck, like the TeaBags, the Republicans…
No, I don’t think it’s hyperbole to mention the FACT that the main difference between a Nazi and a Republican is that the Nazis were far more organized and efficient.
They were, at the same time as the Anschluss, organizing in America, actually had rallies at venues like Madison Square Garden. Huge rallies attended by the Elite of the Republican Party. Pastors like Billy Sunday preached at their rallies. The Klan attended their rallies.
Kind of like the Tea Party Rally Beck and Palin held at the Lincoln Memorial. Wonderful company they keep, and they get all bent out of shape when somebody on the Left has the gall to mention it. Or mentioning the FACT that the Modern Nazis, Beck and Palin, attack a minority religious group from the Middle East, just like Billy Sunday and Prescott Bush and their American Brownshirts attacked the Jewish middle eastern minority religious group. They choose American Muslims today because they’re cowards and want to pick a fight with the smallest minority group possible.

But you know what kept the Nazis from taking over in America? Sure as HELL wasn’t the American Fascist Republican Party.
Wasn’t the American Military, either, Doug MacArthur and Eisenhower and Patton actually ordered American Soldiers to fire on… American Soldiers, in Washington DC within spitting distance of where the Modern Fascists held their rally.

It was leftists like Woody Guthrie, Pete Seeger, the more public faces of the anger sweeping across America at the Industrialists and their minions in the Nazi Party and the Klan. And the millions of Americans displaced, unemployed, uprooted, for no crime other than being at the bottom when the Very Rich crashed the American economy on top of them.

And the PIGS, true to form, today and then, took sides with the rich.

Could it be, Olbermann fired by FOX?

Since the following chain of logic is true, very possible and knowing the “ethical” standards of the American CorporaFascist Empire therefore very probable. Quote:November 05, 2010 12:14 PM
What Role Did Comcast Play in Keith Olbermann’s Suspension?–UPDATED
By karoli
There is a double standard at work with regard to Keith Olbermann’s suspension, not only between other personalities appearing on MSNBC as commentators, but also at the very top level of the food chain. Comcast now owns MSNBC after their acquisition was completed earlier this year, despite protestations from many of us. A look at campaign finance disclosures for several organizations shows that Phil Anschutz, chairman of Comcast major shareholder and content partner with Comcast, donated large sums of money to the First Amendment Alliance,
(How very Orwellian, have we wound back the clock to “1984”? Does the Legal Staff for the “First Amendment Alliance work only for the Rich? What a foolish question, of course they won’t defend anybody else’s freedom of speech -Jonah) one of the largest outside groups targeting Democrats in the 2010 midterm elections.

The Anschutz Corporation, wholly owned by Phil Anschutz, gave $50,000 on 9/24/2010 to the First Amendment Alliance. The two candidates targeted by the First Amendment Alliance? Jack Conway and Michael Bennet.

Keith Olbermann gave to Jack Conway’s campaign along with Raul Grijalva and Gabrielle Giffords.

In addition, the Anschutz family donated $169,900 to Republican candidates and committees during the 2010 election cycle, according to Open Secrets.

Additionally, Comcast Corporation has contributed $125,000 to the Republican Governors’ Association in the 2010 cycle (as of 9/30/2010).

There’s been a lot of chatter about MSNBC policy, and whether Olbermann should have gotten advance approval for his donations to Jack Conway, Raul Grijalva(Targeted, literally, by the Neo-Nazi group “the Minutemen” for taking a stand against their Racist anti-Immigrant policies, they fired shots at his office and have repeatedly threatened him, along with Murdering the American Child Briseña Flores in her home because her surname is Spanish) and Gabrielle Giffords on October 28th. The policy I’ve seen reads like this:

NBC and MSNBC TV require permission of the president of NBC News. (MSNBC.com is a joint venture of NBC Universal and Microsoft.)

“Anyone working for NBC News who takes part in civic or other outside activities may find that these activities jeopardize his or her standing as an impartial journalist As opposed to an “entertainer” edit by Jonah because they may create the appearance of a conflict of interest. But not Corporate donations nor the contributions from the Elitist Scum who effectively ARE the corporation- Jonah Such activities may include participation in or contributions to political campaigns or groups that espouse controversial positions. (even though Mr Olbermann made huge sums of Profits for MSNBC by celebrating or opposing very controversial positions) You should
(but not “Must” -Jonah) report any such potential conflicts in advance to, and obtain prior approval of, the President of NBC News or his designee.” (who insist they have no such moral obligations, far less legal -Jonah)

That language clearly says “should” and not “must”. Further, anyone who thinks Keith Olbermann is an impartial journalist should have their head examined. (sic -grammar -Jonah) He’s not, never has been, never will be, and is not presented as one.

But it leaves this question lingering for me: How is it that the parent corporation of NBC and chairman of that corporation, Pat Buchanan and Joe Scarborough are accorded First Amendment rights to political speech and Keith Olbermann is not?

GET THIS: From the NYTimes:

The News Corporation is one of the biggest suppliers of content to Comcast, with contracts worth hundreds of millions of dollars.
End quote.
So whazzup on that, Dawgs? It would seem that Fox, feeling empowered by their Corporate Sponsored “victory” over American Democracy and any sense of real liberty, is now punishing people who don’t even work for their particular subsidiary node of the Corporate Empire.

For doing on a private individual basis for Democratic candidates whom Fox and the head offices of Comcast had targeted Publicly and, when they did so, with amounts of cash that would dwarf KO’s entire stash, let alone what he could afford to donate. And, in the case of Fox, non-stop, 24/7 for 17 YEARS providing free advertising for the Republican and Tea Parties.

FREE airtime, from a Corporate Hypocrisy that actually got the United States Congress to condemn the New York Times for SELLING an ad to MoveOn.org at a discount.

Said that any criticism of then President Bonzo the Semi-Articulate Chimpanzee was de facto an endorsement of and a campaign contribution to the DNC.

Coward bastards hid behind a technicality that they more than technically break and have broken consistently for 17 years. And, it wasn’t so much a criticism against George Bush, but his Mouthpiece General Betray-us. Allegedly, the Pentagon doesn’t belong to any political faction or party. FOX sees it differently and had enough Corporate Slave Congresspersons to back them up on it.

There were REAL stories which got buried by the storm of OUTRAGE! instigated by the fake “revolutionaries” at Fox. A wave of racist terrorism which Fox tacitly endorsed, anonymous COWARDS hanging nooses outside the homes and offices of Black “troublemakers”.

One of which was hanged outside the office of a Coast Guard professor… inside the boundaries of the Coast Guard Academy.

A major victory of anti-American TERRORISTS on a supposedly secured American Military Installation, crawling with Navy SPs and monitored front and back, up and down, and sideways by Security Surveillance of every kind, supposedly somebody sneaked onto the installation to deliver the Hate Message. Was this story reported on FOX? Fox no it wasn’t. Fox was too busy beating the drum FOR Bush and his accomplice Generally Betrays Us.
FOR organized slaughter in pursuit of the almighty dollar. You know who DID mention it amid all the DumFux Noise Nutwerks generated hooplah? Keith Olbermann.

Also in the pipes during the same short period of Journalistic Shining Ethics on the part of DumFux, was Comcast consolidating their Unholy Alliance with MSNBC, now their Lackeys who do their dirty work for them… like firing KO… who incidentally, unlike DumFox Noose Nutwerx, DID comment on that.

Show of hands, class, is there anybody here who doesn’t believe either Comcast, NBC, Microsoft or especially FOX news would be above doing something like that? Anybody? Bueller? Anybody? Who believes they have enough morals to refrain from that given the means and the motive? Who believes they don’t have the means or the motive? Anybody?
