Jeep declares war on intellect.

They're sponsoring Call of Duty:whateverthehellnumber : BlackOps. In the Jeep commercial they show screenshots of a Black Jeep SUV in some tropical location that exists only in the imaginations of the designers of the game, who never got closer to actual war than speeding up as they passed the Army Recruiter's office on their way to a College Republicans meeting. Call of "Duty"? BlackOps is not very discrete code for Murder, Kidnap and Torture, in other words, REAL terrorism funded and backed by a massive military industrial complex. Of which the manufacturers of Jeep are a proud member-group. BlackOps is not anybody's "Duty" it's a pleasure romp for people who enjoy killing and enjoy torture and enjoy the feeling of helpless victims fearing them. The sick bastards who play the game on their computers in their Moms' basements and fantasize killing are only slightly less sick than the ones who go out and commit the actual Murders, kidnaps and tortures. Or the political bastards who order the Terroristic BlackOps strikes. Games like that destroy your own capacity to think rationally, it's a downward spiral into being the formerly human equivalent of a mechanical drone. THEY push your launch buttons and aim you toward their target, as intelligent and free and human as a simple bullet.

Coward Racist Republicans

Now calling for Senate Majority Leader Reid to resign. Where was their outrage two weeks ago when their Racist Tea Party, at their urging, did a mock hanging of Barack Obama? Where was their outrage when their Loudmouth Talking Rectum, Rush "Lardass' Limbaugh was selling recordings of a song "Barack the Magic Negro"? Answer, the same place their Outrage was when Rush and Cheney and Bush and Romney and Reagan and John Wayne and the ChickenHawk College Republicans decided that they were "Too Good" to fight in the wars they supported. Along with their "outrage" about the United States Military causing Spontaneous Aborti "miscarriages" in Iraq and Afghanistan and VietNam and every other place the Air Force targeted Civilians... Not to mention their "outrage" about the Children who were already born, Murdered by their military actions. Seems RePukeLickin' Party members can fake outrage whenever necessary, accomplished Liars that they truly are. Like Beck with his Ben-Gay under the eyes so he could weep on demand. Not just Physical Cowards, sending the sons of the poor to fight for their Sorry Worthless Collective Arse, but Moral Cowards as well. Now they'll probably get on my case for calling THEM names. Hypocricy in Action.

Why a centipede is called a centipede.

Or a millipede a millipede. It's because most people are too lazy to count beyond 38. I stopped counting how many times the Right Wing Retards have called us "Retards" for pointing out basic facts, like: George Bush, the source of their information on the War On Terror, and his Retarded Henchmen, have been consistently wrong, so often that they're either a) lying to you or b)God-damned retarded. Yet the Retards who willingly believe every Retarded Lie that the Right Wing has fed them, especially on the subject of the War, get all upset and huffy and pout and whimper and wet their pants if they're called Retards. Or ChickenHawks. Or whatever. GROW THE HELL UP. It's not our fault that you can't or won't see the fact that you've been lied to you. We haven't been keeping it any kind of a secret that you've been lied to. So either you accept the dubious honor of being Not Guilty by Reason of Stupidity or, you're a deliberate liar yourself. Which would the Right Wing prefer, now? The left wing "retards" you describe by those exact terms, we're not the ones who lied to start two wars. We didn't tell you that there were a million pounds of Nerve Gas in Iraq. Your Leaders did. We, the Left Wing, actually have spent the past 8 years in a semi-organized effort, involving hundreds of dollars and Billions of people around the world, educating you in the fact that your Stupid Beliefs in the lies told to you by YOUR leaders were, in fact, Stupid. Instead of listening, taking much advantage of that (from your point of view) Free Educational Material, you stuck your fingers in your ears and said things that make Nanny, nanny boo boo stick your head in Doo-doo look positively scholarly by comparison. Now your Leaders are telling you the same LIES regarding their so-called "War on Terror" and you're eating it up and asking for "more,please". I could, easily, run a scan on the site looking for every instance of the word "retard" in any form, I personally stopped counting after (just not on this exact site) 9/12/01 early in the day, when the use of the word "retarded" to describe Left Wingers who didn't buy George Bush's LIES reached into the thousands. But doing that, and showing you RETARDS actual proof of y'all dishing out the insults you so freely whine and snivel about when they're directed back at you... but it would be futility. The WMD lies were demonstrated beyond any but the most Retarded Doubts to be false claims, before the invasion started. Did the Retards listen? No. They chose instead to break out the "retard" insults, also "lefty loon", "moonbat" and "liberal bedwetters" When the New York Times ran a half page ad for stating that Generally Betray-us was Lying, the Right Wing Retards spent several days screaming their OUTRAGE! on DumFox Noose about a Brave, Noble Hero being insulted. And the New York Times giving the exact same deal on

Ward Churchill speaks on which settler invasion wrote the book on Apartheid

Ward Churchill spoke in Tucson on Friday and Brenda Norrell has posted the footage. Watching the ex-CU professor speak, I can't help but think about the university students' loss. They're missing the lamentably rarefied perspectives he offers of course, but more important, the inspiration gained from such an engaging luminary. Throughout his lectures, Churchill likes to put questions back at his audience. He understands, if I can presume to project his rationale, that a mentor's role is to bounce ideas around, and be sure his students have minds open enough to let them resonate. It's also a sign of someone fully confident with what they are teaching. Churchill gives you the impression he's interested in the best argument you've got, and I believe him, but in reality he's going to have few peers up to the task. When it's time for Q and A, Prof. Churchill calls it mud-wrestling, and welcomes all shots, "even spit wads." He draws the line at brick bats, because he says, one might bounce off his head and hit somebody else. He warns, as if he's had practice, "because someone might get hurt. I can assure you it won't be me." I wished at that moment that Tucson was not so far from Churchill's curiously vile detractors, who attended his trial in Denver, and who hold bitch fests online about every Churchinalia for reasons unspecified. I predict they're remunerated; the love-to-hate pretext is wearing thin, these yahoos are pro-Israeli tea-baggers. So there's no Drunkablog or Pirate Ballerina there tonight to take the "perfessor's" challenge. Although wouldn't such an exchange have been simply tedious? I recall this dismal attempt mounted against "Wart" by a couple CU college Republicans, it was just embarrassing. Have Churchill's online critics ever confronted him in person I wonder? They can spout off in the safety of anonymity, and that's about it. Churchill's speech to the predominantly Anglo and O'odham border activists was about the bigger issues behind the border wall. The theme of the gathering was Apartheid in America, and Churchill demonstrated how South African Apartheid came of the successful colonial methods practiced in the United States. These were the strategies employed by the Germans in taking and settling the Eastern Front during WWII, and of course the goals of Israel in Palestine. Churchill described how settler invasions vary from colonial administration. In the latter case, the colonizers can go home, in the former, they stay. Another distinction is critical, the settlers aren't moving to a land and becoming part of the social system, they remain citizens of the occupying force. They bring their identity and the foreign system with them, to apply against the people indigenous to the land. The process involves two steps: displace enough of the natives to make room for yourselves, but leave just enough to serve as a labor pool, for all the building that is required of empire building. You've need of only a portion of the original population, to do the manual labor required

UCSB Hillel students Rebecca Joseph, Tova Hausman highlight poor education

Today'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. The literacy level of these two students is probably on par for Twilight fans, but definitely unbecoming for the University of California system. The first letter is reputedly from a college senior. Rebecca Joseph's opening argument was plagiarized from the internet, but she continues to scold Professor Robinson for straying from her idea of what makes a university professor. The second complaint from UCSB junior Tova Hausman copies the first letter's form, but adds the accusation of sexual misconduct for leaving her feeling raped. Is it unfair to put simple college students under national scrutiny like this? From their own words they show themselves to be rather helpless. But what to do when students, or some unscrupulous backers, are taking aim at a respected tenured professor? It's serious business. Organizations like ACTA and Hillel are out to enforce a veritable Right Wing PC rectitude. As if it's politically incorrect to make fun of uneducated on campus! Keeping educators silenced was easier during the Bush administration, but the dampers are still on Academic Freedom. Ward Churchill may have won his case in court against the University of Colorado, but opinionated faculty are still few and far between. The latest attack against William Robinson attempts to reinforce more of the same. Probably by now Hillel is wishing they'd coaxed a better educated pair of students to face off against Robinson. The administrators who received the complaint letters should have earmarked the girls for a remedial English refresher in anticipation of their graduation. But let's look beyond the cheap shots. The accusations inarticulated here are scurrilous where they are not outright illogical. You be the judge. First Student Complaint Here's the first complaint received by UCSB, from Rebecca Joseph, Vice-president of the Santa Barbara campus Orthodox Jewish Chabad. Interestingly, UCSB has a number of pro-Israel action groups: Hillel, Jewish Awareness Movement on Campus, American Students for Israel, Stand With Us, AIPAC and the Israeli Palestinian Film Festival (which judging by the lineup runs films only by un-self-critical Israelis and sympathetic Palestinians). Here is Rebecca Joseph's complaint, uncorrected. To Whom It May Concern: On Monday, january 19, at 1:02 pm, I received an email from Professor Robinson for the course Sociology of Globalization (Soc 130SG). The subject of the email was "Parallel images of Nazis and Israelis." This email compared the aggression of the Nazis to the Jews in Germany, to that which is going on between Palestine and Israel today. Professor Robinson wrote the first three paragraphs including the following: "Gaza is Israel's Warsaw..." In addition to his few words, he attached

College Republicans not brightest bulbs

BOULDER- A favorite photo from Thursday night's event. This is the president of the CU College Republicans, who got up to object to student funds being spent on terrorists and frauds. Even after Ayers and Churchill spoke about how neither education nor students should be treated like commodities, sweaty dope Andrew Crown asked why a university could not do like any well-run corporation, and fire whomever it wished. The crowd booed, but the panel of guests calmly encouraged us to let everyone have their say. It's a reserve and graciousness of which I am in short supply. These guys shout down activists, attack progressives, remember the RNC Kicker, and the Protest Warriors? They have the ear of the mainstream corporate press. Why would we need to tolerate a single of their blimp-necked peeps at a discussion for intelligent people? If you think I am assessing someone's intelligence level based on whether he agrees with me, I am. On academic matters, it most certainly is appropriate. In classes, assessments of the retention and comprehension of man's accumulated understanding of the subjects are called tests. Does the University of Colorado have no admissions standards? Mr. Crown's questions was answered well beyond his ability to understand, and he returned to his seat shaking his head like the whole lot of us were incorrigible. I hope so.
