Thousands rally in Denver against wall and Muslim Ban


DENVER, COLORADO- Thousands streamed into Civic Center Park to spend Saturday afternoon listening to speeches against President Trump’s MUSLIM BAN. Lots of families with kids so I kept my sign on the fringe pointed outward. I don’t usually favor profanity but this slogan was spotted at New York’s JFK airport last Satruday, then replicated across the country the same weekend. I spotted several at the Denver rally AND in Colorado Springs, because I think, NOT TODAY MOTHERFUCKER says it best. Racism, bigotry and wanton abuse of power is obscene.

Charlie Hebdo cartoonists didn’t merit death, like adversaries of West do.

I AM A CIArLIEEven the nuanced critiques of the CHARLIE HEBDO COMEUPPANCE in Paris begin by disclaiming “of course the cartoonists didn’t deserve to die.” But I wonder, have none among us yet earned our adversaries’ judgment? We western imperialists are quick to decide which of our opponents deserve to die, even as mere collateral in our preemptive justice-dealing. How uncharitable of our exceptionalism to think that only we can direct extrajudicial assassinations. Paris is a front line like any other noncombatant zone marauded by US drones. Our intelligence agencies aren’t bothered to explain who they target and why. Contrast our existential rationalizations with the concrete evidence, much of it rubble, with which anti-imperial defenders can condemn us.

I dunno, maybe that was some kind of sign, you reckon?

It’s difficult to inject logic into either politics or faith without being the subject of a lynching, but here goes.
There was a statue, 62 feet tall, of Jesus on the side of a highway in Ohio. People would actually pull over and pray to it. So last year about this time it was struck by lightning, caught fire and burned down. Or burned up. Means the same thing. Now, there’s long been a controversy in Christianity and Judaism and Islam over the making of graven images and with special notice given to a statue, picture or whatever of God.
Much Christian blood has been spilt by other Christians with Iconoclasm being one of the issues.
The Hundred Years War for instance. Somebody who was crawling up out of the Medieval Tradition and had learned to read, and noticed that there was a discrepancy of sorts between “Thou shalt not make any graven image” and the Church tradition of making lots and lots of graven images. So, that left no choice but to wage bloody, expensive and generally tragic War for a hundred years, hence the name. There were other issues, mostly having to do with which Christian king got to own which land and the people therein.
So, now, there’s almost completed, another Touchdown Jesus statue being made by the same corporation which makes the fiberglass Big Boy hamburger franchise statues. With the notation of “it’s lightning-proof”.
Here’s where logic should be employed…

If as the Bible says, God controls the storm, Jesus specifically, then it’s pretty likely that God has decisively said “NO!” to the statue of His Incarnation Jesus, and building another one right in the same spot and DARING God to strike that one with lightning might not be all that good an idea.

In fact, it might be considered downright foolish. And expensive, the last one cost $600,000 and the notion of fiscal conservativism is a big issue with Christians nowadays.
Not that the ones who sing the loudest praises of conservativism actually conserve anything but that’s a longstanding pet peeve of mine and y’all probably already noticed that it’s my pet peeve.

I was thinking of getting a dog and naming it Peeve so I could go around saying “that’s my pet, Peeve” but the humor would wear off after about, o, I dunno, the second time I told the joke. Dogs sometimes live to be twenty years old and I don’t think the joke would last quite that long.

But back to the theme, spending more than a half million to replace a statue that God already rejected, kind of violently and to the point, one could say “in a shocking display” is, I don’t know, maybe “squandering” as opposed to “saving”.

Mind you, it’s not my money. I do, however, wish and pray that people would stop doing things to make Christians look stupid.
In a related theme, a preacher named Pat Robertson has often tried to make White Southern Christians look stupid by telling the entire world that White Southern Christians all agree on his Hate Speech talking points, and that they’re not Hate but Love.

It’s incredibly insulting. I’m not any more than half white and I’m insulted. Maybe Brother Pat can go stand near that statue.

Things to De-Celebrate this National Hate Week

Which is a smack to the back of the head to all those who told us in 1984 that the Police State setup from the BOOK of the same name couldn’t possibly happen in America because it was all about Socialist Dystopia and nobody, no not ever, could set up a CAPITALIST dictatorship. God, they’re stupid.
 
But here’s what the post 9/11 “patriotism” has gotten us. Eight years of a moron for president, an evil moron but a moron. His crew of more intelligent evil people used the occasion to make it unpatriotic to question their plans to deregulate American industries. We’ve seen a 9/11 worth of dead Americans every single month due to denial of Health Care. We’ve seen pollution that al Qa’eda could only hope to inflict on any one small town, done daily and across the nation. We’ve seen our national surplus turned upside down, and many multiples of the amount of that surplus in debt, due to the Wars started by the aforementioned Moron in response to 9/11. The badly misnamed USA PATRIOT Act is being invoked against Julian Assange and Wikileaks in response to their telling the TRUTH about 9/11 and the aforementioned wars, the moron who started them and the morons who still follow his leadership even though it’s destroyed what used to be America. Those Morons have banded together into Right Wing Terrorist Groups such as the TeaParty, Minutemen and other “patriotic” front-ends for the Ku Klux Klan. They’ll be flying plenty of the Hate Flag. By Tea-Klan MORONS such as this couple who made their Wedding into a Hate-fest. Yep, that’s right, they’re celebrating their wedding with symbols of Starting A Racist War which killed half a million Americans in order to keep according to the 1860 census 3,950,528 Americans in perpetual bondage based on the color of their skin.

To deny AMERICANS the rights to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness spoken of, ever so nobly, in a revered document written by a Slaveowner. So much for the “original intent”, Jefferson spoke of Liberty in one paper then wrote whole books demonizing Black Americans and condemning them to slavery.

You find that a lot in the “original intent” doctrine espoused by those who want to return America to an official slave nation.

Emboldened by the level of pure ignorant and racist Hatred engendered by 9/11.

So, De-Celebrate it by burning the Racist Flag.

And, not just those of us who are of Darker Skin, or mixed “race”.

Every WHITE person in the world has a stake in this as well, a huge stake because it will only be by the WHITES rejecting the label the Racist PurkMeisters like the Tea-Klan want to place on All White People.

They would have me and thee and she and he and we and everybody in the whole world believe that all white people are as stupid, ignorant and hate filled as they are.

So I’m calling on the so-called “white race” to step up and redeem and reclaim the dignity of what their and my white relatives have done FOR the world. Of course, a lot of it is mixed in with some very stupid and often Evil crap.

The world wars saw many millions of mostly “christian” whites killed by other “christian” whites. Literally marched into belt-fed water-cooled machine gun fire.

And those wars, like the ones leading up to it, some of them so long and vicious they’re called by the number of years they took between declaring war and declaring peace, just for the sake of simplicity.

Which were also direct pre-cursors to the American Civil War and, yes, planted the seeds of Hatred which blossomed so brightly on 9/11 and afterward.

The Colorado Springs city and county governments are giving away red-white-blue ribbons pledging never to forget, with the suggestion that we put them on our trees, mailboxes, fences.. fuck that.

I’ll probably be picking up hundreds of them off the roads and out of the ditches the same way I STILL pick up those stupid damned antenna flags that “patriots” lose off their cars and don’t go back to retrieve them.

In fact I’m going to go around with a camera taking pictures of the ribbons and flags, the store-bought fake-ass “patriotism”, laying in the weeds and ditches and mud-gutters as I’m picking them up and it will be a reminder of the SHAME those ignorant Socially Retarded Animated Sphincters (walking assholes) bring to their own definitions of “patriotism”.

Blind racism and fear of Arabs, whether or not the Arabs are Christian, Jewish or Muslim, (yes, people, your stupid stereotypes are WRONG, take THAT, byotches!) and in fact there was a “Mosque” AT THE TWIN TOWERS which was being used for prayers at the moment the attack began. There were Muslims on the planes who were merely Passengers. In fact for all anybody knows, the ones credited with the kill might have just been passengers who happened to be Arabic.

None of the alleged hijackers were from Iraq or Afghanistan.

Indeed, among the many victims of 9/11 were several dozen innocent Muslims, ranging in age from their late 60s to a couple’s unborn child. Six of these victims were Muslim women, including one who was 7 months pregnant. Many were stockbrokers or restaurant workers, earning a living to care for their families. There were converts and immigrants, hailing from over a dozen different countries and the U.S. There were heroes: a NYPD cadet and a Marriott hotel worker, who sacrificed their lives attempting to rescue others. The Muslim victims were parents to over 30 children, who were left orphaned

Also many of the victims were “illegal” Immigrants who were working at or near the Towers, another group of people the Hate-Freak Confederate Tea-Klan like to demonize.

Again, take THAT, byotches! Fold your bigotry and prejudice and racism until it’s all sharp corners and shove it up your collective Arse, sideways so it hurts more.

The shocking part about the AI PACkers… Listen up, Lamborn fans…

It’s not the blatant anti-Semitism involved in wanting to set Israel up as a target for near-total destruction, it’s not their arrogance in making money supplying the means, the money, weapons, propaganda, anti-social gospel of indifference, answering the question of Cain “am I my brothers keeper” with a resounding NO, warmongering on every level… setting all the preconditions for an apocalyptic global destruction, the one they make money predicting… predicting the ride of the Horsemen and grooming their horses for them at the same time…
No, the really shockingly delusional part about it is their overwhelmingly conceited belief that Everybody Else on the planet would be so stupid that we wouldn’t notice that.
We’re supposed to not notice that they’re warning of destruction, and sowing the economic seeds of that destruction daily, using the monetary policies that will ensure famines, ensure that natural disasters will have a far greater human scope than would be possible otherwise.
Huge concentrations of people on the edge of recurrent natural disasters, kept there for the profit of a very few.
Mass indoctrination of Hate, to keep the unnatural disasters of War going.
All traced back to a very tiny minority whose faith is in no God or gods but only in money.
They devour the houses of widows and orphans and for a pretense make long prayers.
Their bogus “support” for a Jewish state is just one facet of the evil they do in every other facet of their public and private lives.

They should feel shame but obviously do not.
In Genesis, God declares blessings on ALL the descendants of Abraham, Isaac AND Ishmael, Jacob AND Esau, not to mention the descendants of Abraham’s cousin Lot. That gets ignored in the AIPAC “christian” rhetoric, the only blessings recognized are a direct line of Abraham-Isaac-Jacob-Judah-David.

The whole of the Bible, old and new testaments, even the Apocrypha, is dedicated to showing that there is none righteous, no not one. That we can not be redeemed from ourselves by our own actions nor those of our ancestors. We don’t attain salvation or blessings from our heritage.

The notion of an ironclad blessing of righteousness placed on one tribe of humanity is a coin with two sides, on the darkside of it, would Herod be sainted, perhaps? Ahab? Would the man David, who in one chapter is called “A man after God’s own heart” be saved, and his descendants after, by his good works, or condemned by his evil works?
It’s more a case of God being extremely tolerant -to the point of absolute Liberalism – toward mankind as a whole. Judah sold his own brother into slavery and committed adultery with his daughter-in-law, marrying her after he got her pregnant, but is counted blessed.

These are examples of grace, not earned. Yet the blessing of grace is taken to be a license for mass murder.
The admonitions against such crimes is turned around to be somehow an invitation to commit more, and to feel good about doing it.

Lamborn is one of many playing that game.

Yahoo empire blinks on Libya!

Saddling up, out of the shadows of covert participation in the Libyan rebellion against bogeyman Gaddafi might be the US misstep which the Arab movement has been looking for. It’s not enough that Barack Obama’s active suppression of public uprisings in Bahrain and Yemen unmasked his administration as anti-Democratic, now he’s deploying the brute force already visited on Iraq. Bombs against Gaddafi will soon enough yield innocent civilian deaths and America’s War on Islam not only expands in North Africa, it pits itself against the entire pan-Arab revolution. The Qatar-based Al Jazeera Network may have its own motives for beating the drums of war against the loose cannon madman Gaddafi, while sparing the House of Saud similar vilification, but AJ has succeeded in goading the Western powers to put their weapons where their oil is, effectively throwing fuel on a fire that was stalling against the firewall of the dictator’s repressive might. Forget Ben Ali, Mubarak and Gaddafi, the adversary to unite Arabia will be the USA. And while conventional wisdom for Western governance is to announce unpopular policy during the black hole Friday news cycle, our arrogance shows itself tone-deaf to Islam. We might have figured it out watching what happened in Egypt’s Tahrir Square. The secular week-end in the West can erupt as Days of Rage after the reflection of Friday Prayers.

News from Imperial Rome, Crusades 2.0, and Racist Hysteria

Italy is warning the rest of Europe about Tunisian refugees and others from the wave of rebellion against the Empire in their home Vassal States, coming to Europe and taking over. Like they haven’t been doing exactly that same thing to North Africa since the Punic Wars. Guess it’s different when the shoe and the foot are on the other shore. They DO have some legitimate cause for concern, the last time the Empire got this big and powerful, it was taken over and some say, taken down, by a wave of religious refugees from the Middle East. They’ve even got a church where one of the Imperial palaces, the Vatican, once stood.

Cameron vows Racial Cultural purity for Britain

Says he doesn’t have anything against Islam, just “radical” Islam, meaning, Muslims who don’t bow down before his Naturally Superior White Culture. He also, as prime minister to ROYALTY, and incidentally the same Royal Family that used to hunt his ancestors, just for sport, babbles much about Democracy and respect for other cultures. Which he says is somehow the hallmark of the British Empire.

There was, earlier, a parade honoring what the Irish call Bloody Sunday, when Mr Cameron’s Loving and Caring and ever-so-respectful Queen ordered her storm-troopers to fire on a crowd in Derry, in January 1972.

* John (Jackie) Duddy (17). Shot in the chest in the car park of Rossville flats. Four witnesses stated Duddy was unarmed and running away from the paratroopers when he was killed. Three of them saw a soldier take deliberate aim at the youth as he ran. He is the uncle of the Irish boxer John Duddy.

* Patrick Joseph Doherty (31). Shot from behind while attempting to crawl to safety in the forecourt of Rossville flats. Doherty was the subject of a series of photographs, taken before and after he died by French journalist Gilles Peress. Despite testimony from “Soldier F” that he had fired at a man holding and firing a pistol, Widgery acknowledged that the photographs showed Doherty was unarmed, and that forensic tests on his hands for gunshot residue proved negative.

* Bernard McGuigan (41). Shot in the back of the head when he went to help Patrick Doherty. He had been waving a white handkerchief at the soldiers to indicate his peaceful intentions.

* Hugh Pious Gilmour (17). Shot through his right elbow, the bullet then entering his chest as he ran from the paratroopers on Rossville Street.

Widgery acknowledged that a photograph taken seconds after Gilmour was hit corroborated witness reports that he was unarmed, and that tests for gunshot residue were negative

“Widgery” refers to the first investigation, which in spite of all these inconsistencies, cleared the British Stormtroopers of any wrongdoing.

* Kevin McElhinney (17). Shot from behind while attempting to crawl to safety at the front entrance of the Rossville Flats. Two witnesses stated McElhinney was unarmed.

* Michael Gerald Kelly (17). Shot in the stomach while standing near the rubble barricade in front of Rossville Flats. Widgery accepted that Kelly was unarmed.

* John Pius Young (17). Shot in the head while standing at the rubble barricade. Two witnesses stated Young was unarmed.

* William Noel Nash (19). Shot in the chest near the barricade. Witnesses stated Nash was unarmed and going to the aid of another when killed.

* Michael M. McDaid (20). Shot in the face at the barricade as he was walking away from the paratroopers. The trajectory of the bullet indicated he could have been killed by soldiers positioned on the Derry Walls.

* James Joseph Wray (22). Wounded then shot again at close range while lying on the ground. Witnesses who were not called to the Widgery Tribunal stated that Wray was calling out to say that he could not move his legs before he was shot the second time.

* Gerald Donaghy (17). Shot in the stomach while attempting to run to safety between Glenfada Park and Abbey Park. Donaghy was brought to a nearby house by bystanders where he was examined by a doctor. His pockets were turned out in an effort to identify him. A later police photograph of Donaghy’s corpse showed nail bombs in his pockets. Neither those who searched his pockets in the house nor the British army medical officer (Soldier 138) who pronounced his death shortly afterwards say they saw any bombs. Donaghy had been a member of Fianna Éireann, an IRA-linked Republican youth movement.

Paddy Ward, a police informer who gave evidence at the Saville Inquiry, claimed that he had given two nail bombs to Donaghy several hours before he was shot dead.

* Gerald (James) McKinney (34). Shot just after Gerald Donaghy. Witnesses stated that McKinney had been running behind Donaghy, and he stopped and held up his arms, shouting “Don’t shoot! Don’t shoot!”, when he saw Donaghy fall. He was then shot in the chest.

* William Anthony McKinney (27). Shot from behind as he attempted to aid Gerald McKinney (no relation). He had left cover to try to help Gerald.

* John Johnston (59). Shot in the leg and left shoulder on William Street 15 minutes before the rest of the shooting started. Johnston was not on the march, but on his way to visit a friend in Glenfada Park He died 4½ months later; his death has been attributed to the injuries he received on the day. He was the only one not to die immediately or soon after being shot.

Here’s something that will sound familiar to those who watched, either here or another site, the leaked video of U.S. Army helicopters shooting up a residential neighborhood in Iraq. And where one U.S. soldier, who rescued two badly wounded CHILDREN, was censured by his Commanding Officer for doing so.

“At a certain point, reports of an IRA sniper operating in the area were allegedly given to the Army command centre”

The cause of the “riot”? The respectful and democracy loving British PIGS Mr Cameron gushes about with their constant working for Freedom, had ordered the Irish not to hold a protest march.

Something our Colorado Springs critics would do well to remember, when they start talking about our own St Paddiy’s Day Massacre four years ago, and berating us for making political statements at St Paddy’s, which “everybody (who has been indoctrinated to always obey anybody who claims authority) KNOWS has no political ramification”

The Pro-Babykilling War Machine marched with no interference. The Young Marines Brainwash-the-Kids marched with no interference, teaching the little bastards how to grow up to be Babykillers just like mommy and daddy.

Boy Scouts, actually an offshoot of British youth paramilitary groups, same thing. Nothing political about that, now was there? There was as far as I know not one rendition of “Wearin’ o’ the Green” played, which has the line in it, referring to the 400 year Killing and Suppression Spree in which the Brits engaged, “they’re hangin men, and hangin’ women, fo’ the wearin’ o’ the Green.”

The Al Khaly Shrine band, however, did play “God Save the Queen” as the Colorado Springs Gestapo were Ideologically Cleansing the parade.

There were even British military in the St Paddy’s parade.

But, back in England, the Scion of Scots who is now a lackey to the English-born German Queen, has turned his attention to Muslim British Citizens. Probably has much to do with the Irish having finally beaten back the English “pro-democracy freedom loving” masters.

The Republic of Ireland, by the way, did not back the Bush/Blair regime war of conquest, based on lies, of the Iraqi nation. And still don’t.

Tripoli and the Original Intent of the Founding Great White Fathers.

You know the first line of the Marine Corps Hymn, ends with “to the shores of Tripoli” So, why, exactly, was Tripoli so important? Well, since American Capitalism was and still is heavily dependent on goods and services produced by Slavery, an important slave-shipping region like the Barbary Coast (North Africa from western Egypt to the Gibraltar Straits) was the “Raw Material” source for American, British and French Capitalism. Slaves. Human cargo. The Bush family and the Harvard trust and the Yale trust got simultaneously Fantastically Wealthy through the ‘necessary evil’.
 
Capital can only work if the Richest make other HUMAN BEINGS poorer. The “rising tide lifts all boats” bullshit is simply that. In a system of finite resources, and there is no resource which isn’t… the Rich can only gain and maintain their wealth at the expense of everybody else.

Just as with Roman Capitalism, the foundation of that wealth has to come from conquest. The “free” market = the Slave Market.

The Barbary Pirates as they’re usually called in American History also made huge amounts of money selling captive Africans to White European-stock Americans like Washington, Hamilton, Jefferson. Those who didn’t own slaves, benefited by transporting, selling and providing the “seed money” Capital to the Slave Industry. They rode the whip-shredded backs of African slaves to “freedom” and wealth.

For a short while the Barbary Coast slave traders worked it in both directions. Not that the American and British and French “christian” Slavers were averse to white people being enslaved, heck no. They had plenty of white slaves themselves, just held in bond through chains of debt. Get the Suckers to believe that if they work really hard for really low wages and then turn around and re-invest part of their meager fortune into the Corporations of Their Masters, like a 401-k plan, and they too might become wealthy. It was a lie then and a lie now.

But the “pirates” perhaps by mistake sold some of the Aristocrats into slavery. OOPS.

So, the Marines were sent in.

Actually, the Marines lost. It would be considered humiliating, if they couldn’t spin it somehow.

While they were busily trying to arrange a coup-d’etat, which failed, The “pirates” renegotiated their supply contract with the American envoys, with a clause that they should refrain from taking White Aristocrats as slaves.

So the Marines, to save face, have to say that their machinations, which failed, and cost Marine lives, must have frightened the “pirates” into compliance.

When instead it was just (slave) business as usual. A miscommunication between divisions of essentially the Same Corporate Entity. Nothing to see here, SLAVE Citizen, keep moving, get the Hell back to work, nothing to see…

Judge not lest ye also be judged…

Which is a distillation of the basic part of Jewish law. When one brings an accusation against another in before the priests (judges) both parties are supposed to be judged. Equally. Leviticus goes on and on about using the same measurements to sell as you use to buy. Standardized weights in every facet of life especially, in cases before the priests.
Israel says Hamas has Anti-Aircraft missiles.
Sure, if I had hostile people in multi-billion dollar attack aircraft flying low over my family and friends and occasionally SHOOTING at us I’d perhaps want some way to shoot back and maybe keep the Rich Murderers from killing me or my family or friends or for that matter ANYBODY.
It’s a huge leap of arrogance for Ehud Barak to go all crybaby and say Waaaahhh those people we’ve been steadily killing in their own country which doesn’t waaaahh actually belong to waaaaah Israel and Israel has no legal authority to waaaaahhh use high-tech terrorism against their people, mostly civilians, have gotten a waaaahh waaahhhh wahhhh way to keep from doing it sometimes.
No Fair!! Waaaahhhh Waaahhh we’re the only ones allowed to kill waaahh waaaaaaaaaaahhhh!”

By the same measure with which ye judge shall judgment be measured out to ye. People who want to argue the point can talk to Moses about it. Or God.
You’re not going to have it both ways, an unlimited Magic Ticket to killing anybody anywhere in the world as Mossad claims the right, and nobody else having the right to stop you from doing it. If you say God gave you that authority then you’re simply LYING and using God’s Name in vain. There’s two of the Commandments right there.
Since the commandments given to Moses extend far beyond the ones Charlton Heston dragged down the mountain, the “Ten”, and the first part of it is that you’re sworn to keep the whole law, and you have to have kept the whole law in order to judge any to death… (which is impossible by the way) you either have to actually live by the Law or quit saying that you do.

It’s not all that difficult to understand. 613 mitzvoh (plural of mitzvah, laws you’re sworn to obey on Bar Mitzvah for young Jewish men and Bat Mitzvah for the ladies) isn’t all that much. Lots of traps in there if you want to just arbitrarily declare yourself to be a judge but that’s the way they’re set up.

There lies the arrogance of doing it.
Aside from all else, eagerly seeking any excuse or “commandment” that allows you to KILL people marks you off as very strongly wanting to kill people and looking for a loophole to the “thou shalt not kill” from God’s Top Ten Hits

There are a lot of Christians and Jews and people who don’t even give a fat flying ferret about what God had to say, but want to KILL.. and Kill PEOPLE, and “get away with it” as far as any laws in predominately Jewish or Christian societies which wisely prohibit killing PEOPLE. and they’ll say that somehow, even though exactly NONE of the people propounding the idea actually speaks fluent Aramaic or Classic Hebrew, that it simply MUST be a clerical error, that the original Hebrew, which conveniently they don’t speak,
AND EVEN MORE CONVENIENTLY THE PEOPLE THEY’RE TRYING TO CONVINCE OF THIS LIE DON’T ACTUALLY SPEAK classical Hebrew, that it really said in the Original, which is conveniently not present, “Thou Shalt Not Commit Murder”.

The fallacy of that is inherent and apparent just in their smarmy-ass Fake Elite elitist presentation of the case.

It’s obvious just from them making such statements as “God said it, we’re the only ones authorized to interpret it and thus you had better believe us or we’ll make sure you burn in Hell” that they

a) fully intend to kill PEOPLE and
b) they’re not sure if they’ll be prevented beforehand or punished afterward and
c) don’t want to take the risk of being punished for their wrongdoing and
d) are going to convince as many people as possible to take their side, and
e) knowing the nature of their own cowardice probably talk other people into doing it for them and assuming all the risks….

Like the risk of somebody returning fire when you’re in your multi-billion dollar Jet Fighter Aircraft murdering them and their neighbors.

Has Faulkner bin beatin’ his old lady?

Who knows? Gary Faulkner will undoubtedly get more Due Process from Colorado’s courts (Go ahead, Gary, THANK us “bleeding heart do-gooder Liberals” for not just turning over Due Process meekly and without protest to your Fascist Whore-lords) than he was willing to give Osama bin Dead_for_8_years.
Which is more to the point, but if the un-named by reporters female who was alleged to have been assaulted by him (and given more than one injury) is his wife and he did smack her around, Mrs Faulkner, forget that life insurance policy you’re waiting to collect, ditch his crazy ass. It ain’t worth it, baby.
Meanwhile, he made some cryptic statements back in June about “Wait until August, then you’ll see”. August ended a month and a half ago and the most anybody has said about Osama is that stupid faked up picture the F.B.I. tried to push off on the rest of the world.
And an admission, once it was shown to be a retouched picture of a Spanish member of parliament, that they don’t have a single picture of Osama from anytime in the last 8 years.
Almost 9 years now. So, Mr Stupid Crazoid Faulkner, how the hell were you intending to know if the “ay-rab towel head sand-nigger” you would have ended up murdering was in fact Osama bin Laden? The God-Damned Freakin’ Bureau Of Incompetence DOESN’T EVEN KNOW WHAT HE LOOKS LIKE but YOUR stupid ass was going to commit murder in the Tribal Autonomous Region,

and then run around like an idiot with some vague idea that the lying-ass United States departments of State, Defense and Justice were going to back you up on it? The Pathans would have been parading your pin-sized head on a stake for a week after your very short trial.

That’s just on the very off chance that Gary Faulkner will read this or more likely have one of his Responsible Grown-ups read it for him.

For his fan club who think it was a good idea, and who get all their information on Islam, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Arabs, other Muslims (an Arab would stand out like a sore thumb in Afghanistan or Pakistan, like a Guatemalan tribal leader would in Berlin) consider this, o ye Expert Ones… your Expert Psycho-Social Profile Experts like Bill O’Reilly and Glenn Beck, neither of whom know the least little thing about Islam, don’t know any Muslim PEOPLE, don’t speak read or write Arabic, or Hebrew, or Aramaic, or any of those other Religious Languages they claim to be Authorities therein…

According to the Profile Osama bin Laden is a glory-hound who wants his own name on everybody’s lips and wants the entire world to recognize him as a great Religious and Political Super-Leader.

Wouldn’t you think, just maybe, that a glory-hound like that might want to have his verified picture taken regularly? If, that is, he were still alive?
It seems to me, you know, that as long as they can hold up a picture or other representation of the Bogus Boogieman Osama the Corporate “leaders” can continue to collect huge amounts of money with their own very expensive to us but costs them NOTHING “hunt for Osama” and “Global War on Terror” and they can also use stupid people like Gary Faulkner to draw attention from their own very serious ongoing Crime Spree. Kind of like the Myth of Goldberg from the novel 1984 by Eric Blair pen name Orwell.

Faulkner, dude…
You’re lucky that the actual Pakistani military caught up to you first.
Now the Colorado police have rescued you a second time.

So let’s recap.
The people who are in charge of putting out the propaganda don’t know even if Osama bin Laden is actually alive, and do know he’s probably been dead for more than 8 years.

The pictures of him training at and training others at Paramilitary Bases in Afghanistan, those bases look suspiciously like U.S. Army bases and don’t exist anywhere in Afghanistan.

Osama might be just as mythical a construct as those bases.

The “Experts” who tell us otherwise are largely Actors like Bill O’Reilly, Ann Coulter, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, who are paid to read propaganda provided to them by people who might or maybe not believe the lies they tell the DumFoxers to pass along. And Rudi Giuliani, Sarah Palin, Mitt Romney, Huckabee, all of them supposed to be “Experienced” in fighting Terrorism, all of them actually Chickenhawks, none of whom served in the Military, and the closest one to having experienced Terrorism would be Giuliani whose claim to expertise involves him getting skunked twice in the same location allegedly by the same group. No proof of Osama there.

Also each and every one of those lying Chickenshit jackasses have made the claim that there’s a million pounds of Nerve Gas hidden by Saddam Hussein.

Was Jesus a Muslim (tee-hee)?

Listening to Islamic studies scholar Robert Shedinger taunt the CC audience with whether Jesus may have been a Muslim reminds me of the not-so-old joke about returning the Statue of Liberty to the French, because we’re not using her anymore. At his fundamental, Jesus espoused what we are accustomed to consider were basic Christian Values, but who are American Christians to lay claim to those anymore?

Islam, on the other hand, is a religion to suit the poor and oppressed, traditionally Jesus’ favorites. Unless we’re talking Embed Jesus.

Shedinger urged “constructive dialog” between Muslims and Christians, that each might learn of our common ideals. But his lesson would seem to be entirely for the Christians. All religions share the Golden Rule, do unto others as you would have them do unto you, although one might doubt Americans have given that much thought for awhile.

While many would argue that American religious hypocrisy has been growing fetid over the course of a centuries of imperialist invasions and wars, the Fundamentalist Christian/Moral Majority “WWJD” has taken a turn since 9/11 to mean bomb, maim and torture. Has the American Jesus become Un-Christian, or is this the New World Order Christianity?

In spite of what may be pious America’s best intentions, Capitalism has relegated its moral cover to doublespeak and subterfuge, American churchgoers to dupes, and US missionaries to unwitting cohorts to the deprivations of our businessmen, soldiers and loan officers.

The War on Islam isn’t being waged by Christianity Proper, but by the systemic greed of Western Capitalism, secular and godless, unless you count money to be divine. Capitalism may have Xmas, but it has no claim on Jesus.

R W Lunartic fringe and the Lunar Year

One would think that people who claim to be very pro-Israel (long as them thar jewboys don’t get too uppity) would at least know when the High Holy Days are. Glenn Beck, for instance, Breitbart, Fox News, all of them claiming a victory for Right Wing Lunatic Fringe politics and policies because the Israeli delegation wasn’t at the U.N. on one of the days, Sukkot. These are the leaders of the same fringe groups who tried to make meat of the end of Ramadan being the day before September 11th this year, difference, their Adult Handlers noticed it so there weren’t any Hysterical Shrieks about “Muslim Triumphalists dancing in streets on 9/11!!!”
And MOST of them have dropped their ridiculous pointed slur that Barack must be an exclusively Muslim messianic name… in the face of some people replying to the their Jackass Statements with the notation that one of THE Judges, from the Book by the same name in the Old Testament, was named Barak (although today he would be described as an Unlawful Combatant and Terrorist) and the Israeli Defense minister is named Ehud Barak. One of their “oopsie” moments, one of several (hundred) (thousand) (hundreds of thousands) similar Oopsies.

I’m thinking, here, that it’s a massive failure of Private Education and Hoam Skewl and no, their Pastors don’t know a thing about their own religious beliefs either. Oh, and these are the same Dangerously Inbred Cretins who call us Ignorant Morons because we don’t share their vision of English Americans as “The New Jerusalem”, don’t call for the destruction of Israel in order to usher in the End of Days or other Semitic Anti-Semitism crap-ola.

“Stand with Israel” except they want the Jewish people to be (almost) completely wiped out.

Muslim Mommas never cry and other heinous lies

What got me started on this offering was a TV show on at midnight, only lasted (from my perspective, because the channel got changed quickly) for about two minutes. The show was about 9/11 survivors. One of them said “That’s the difference between America and everybody else… in America when there’s great tragedy and danger people band together and help each other out”. So that means the only people on the entire surface of the planet where people actually have Human Feelings is in America, and everybody else is incapable of actual humanity. Subhumans in other words. Nothing Racist about that? No Religious bigotry either, like when a Muslim preacher orating at a funeral says the deceased is in Paradise, that’s supposedly cold-hearted brainwashing and encouraging the other members of the congregation to do suicide bombings.

When a sold-out Christian Priest, military OR civilian, says that a fallen American soldier is in Heaven, that’s of course not anything to do with glorifying the war that killed the soldier or saying that the cause was just, and righteous, and ordained by God, is it?

Especially when so many of these Sold-out Priests actually DO come right out and say that their version of Jihad/Crusade really IS just, righteous, ordained by God… A “Holy” War in other words.

The Anti-Islam Pro-Holy War Media break out a doll allegedly given to Palestinian kids with bombs, guns, swords and other knives, with a faction-specific headscarf identifying the doll as being Hamas.

and of course, like the funerary eulogy, is “brainwashing the kids to become suicide bombers” while the U.S. version thereof, pictured here, is NOT brainwashing the kids to be Fighter Pilots, Bomber Pilots, Drone Manipulators, Marines, Soldiers and Seamen who use large numbers of heavily armed comrades and high tech weaponry to Kill People using guns, bombs, knives and torture techniques applied to handcuffed prisoners… because, of course, the High-Tech weaponry makes the notion of a Suicide Bomber unnecessary.

If other people who don’t have access to a Drone that can be launched from a heavily guarded air force base and controlled by some Coward Punk Uniformed Child sitting at a desk at an air base in Nebraska, use the more “hands on” approach to delivering their ordinance, then THEY are the cowardly ones, right?

Teaching uniformed children to use weapons and military techniques and tactics is of course a strictly un-American concept, because we would NEVER do that, including not teaching our kids to use the same skills they would need to manipulate Drone Robot Bombs into the living space of other Human Beings with the purpose of Killing The Other Human Beings, by remote control…

No, that’s the province of Other People.

When an American Child is killed violently, usually the violence either accidental or deliberate occurs in America.

Since by most counts the U.S. majority is White and Christian, that means that the majority of both Victims and Victors would be Christian Whites.

Unless you have the silly-ass notion that American Christian Whites don’t ever commit violent crimes.

Until the insertion, forcibly, of the Killer Kristian Krusade into Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Iraq, most violent contact between people in the regions would by default be by other Iraqi, Afghan or Pakistani citizens. “Killing their own people” is the screeching denunciation launched against every Muslim on the planet by Professional Lying Crybabies, like the Pentagon Media Liaisons and their largely unacknowledged Killer Kreep Komrades at FOX and AP and BBC “news” Outlets.

So where is the outcry, whither the screams of loud lamentation, over American White Christians in America “killing their own people”?

Oh, that’s right, it’s all from the “discredited” Radical Left. And of course disproved, even though the facts are obvious, simply because a Leftist writes about it.

And of course wouldn’t reflect on the patent dishonesty or Moral Cowardice of the Radical Right.

Nor would their myths that AFDC, Food Assistance and Medicaid go mostly to Black Americans, when the fact is that White Americans, simply being in the majority, depend more heavily on these “entitlement” programs.

Since RICH Americans are in the tiniest minority and people living below the poverty line are the Vast Majority.

“Average” income and “Median” income don’t mean “half the people in the country make that much or above”.

That would take some Algebra, true, but it’s basic algebra. Anybody who plays checkers or dominoes or any card game knows the basic math to work out that 85% of the wealth being controlled by 5% of the population means there’s 95% of the population would control only 15% of the wealth. In order for a middle class to even exist would mean that the “underclass” those of us “subhumans” who don’t make anywhere near Median Income, is the true Majority.

But it’s only Racial, religious and ethnic minorities who have Public Assistance. Which counts for less than half the Federal Budget. According to the Hate-Mongers.

They also have a myth that Federal Prisoners get food stamp and AFDC benefits. Ronald Reagan, GHW Bush and Newt Gingrich made a campaign issue of it, and actually won. So did “libertarian hero” Ron ‘not really a racist but i play one on TV’ Paul.

And the REAL Welfare Payout, to the “defense” Contractors, is more than half the budget, and going to a tiny minority of the people in the country.

The ones who fund the Hate-Speech Demagogues like Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck and Ron Paul to tell us that Black and Hispanic people on public assistance is what’s breaking the budget.

And incite more Racially Motivated Wars, too, so they can keep their “defense” industry sponsors’ snouts firmly in the trough.

And if Americans of any ethnic, religious, racial or political subculture, get killed in the process, that of course isn’t Anti-American violence, because of course, the Tea Party and other Ku Klux Klown groups have reserved for themselves the right to say who is or is not a “Real” American. People of Ethnic, Religious or Political Difference to the Tea Party “mainstream” need not apply.

9/11 of course. What did you expect?

Thanks to Friend Tony for pointing out that people who don’t believe the Official Story of 9/11 is actually valid, are so stupid that we don’t merit being read, listened to or answered. This makes somewhere around a hundred times he’s made this comment, after listening to or reading them.
I guess it should be pointed out AGAIN some of the many reasons why the Official Story needs some serious questioning. One is the cult like nature of the Resistance Movement Against Questioning The Official High Priests Of 9/11. Such as the Congressionally appointed commission which was stacked top to bottom with people who reaped enormous profit from touting the official story. War Contractors top the list. Political Hacks whose only chance to survive is by groveling to the War Contractors and taking the bribes offered by said Daddy Warbucks types. Hacks like Bush, and Palin, and Daddy Warbucks types who are ALSO Political Hacks.
Cheney, North, Rupert Murdoch and his cast and crew of Paid Professional Liars, which now includes Sarah Palin.

Then there are people who have only one purpose, one drive to continue life… Hatred. People like Pamela Geller. There’s some crossover with the War Contractors and Political Hacks on that score as well, Michelle Malkin leaps to mind.

The biggest thing about any and all of these people who either demand that we not question Their Sacred 9/11 Gospel of Hate, lest they brand us as Non-Americans. Which, you know, when enough of the Anti-American Terrorists like the re-branded Ku Klux Klowns of the Tea Party catch somebody whom they’ve declared to be “Not a REAL American” out alone and helpless, extra heavy on the helpless, they can get really vicious. Killing Vicious.

Alternated with mocking anybody who questions them or points out their dangerous behavior problems, like Murder, Arson, Aggravated Assault… those type of things, must be “stupid” or “Crazy” or some other version of “not able to think rationally nor intelligently”.

And all this from people who either consistently Lie about just anything they open their cake-holes to spew, deliberately and with full knowledge that they’re lying, or the Disciples of their 9/11 Official Story Cult, apparently some of them unable to tell that the most blatant lies are in fact lies,… but most of them too Morally Chickenshit, lacking the courage to face those Lies and call them Lies.

The proponents of the 9/11 Official Gospel also told us that there were Training Camps in Afghanistan, camps which, after almost 9 years of continuous occupation by United States and allied armies, have never actually been found.

The million pounds of Nerve Gas supposedly in Iraq.
Supposedly moved around an urban population center, Baghdad, by underpaid, underfed, undereducated, undertrained and badly demoralized Teenage Conscripts who had no training in handling Nerve gas, often only a half-hour ahead of U.N. Weapons Inspectors… without one single accident.
The United States, which has more stockpiled Nuclear, Biological and Chemical weapons than the rest of the world combined, stores “our” Nerve Gas in climate controlled, heavily guarded, monitored, stationary locations. They don’t move the shit around, ever. And there are still leaks, accidents, sometimes fatal.

I’ll have to remind the deliberately Slow types that these wonderful Disinformation Packages were provided by the same Lying Sources who back up the Official Myth about 9/11.

These same sources tell us, constantly, that Osama bin Laden, hiding in a cave somewhere, is directing world-wide terror plots. They offer us recordings of what’s reported to be his voice. Which were questioned by other people with considerable expertise in voice analysis. They’re just not the Officially Approved experts.

That stamp of Not Officially Approved means, to the simplest and most churlish of the Cult of the 9/11 Official Gospel, that they must be either Stupid or Crazy.
Again, sources, sources, sources.

The Officially Approved Experts, while acknowledging that Osama bin Laden hasn’t actually been seen for 8 and a half years, therefore they have no actual pictures of him freshly taken, created with what they SAID was sophisticated FBI Approved Expert Age Progression Analysis. Aided by computer software, a Picture of somebody they claimed was Osama. But instead was a photoshopped picture of a Spanish Politician. One who, just by mere coincidence, mind you Opposed the wars.
Which throws into question every case the FBI has “solved” using this non-existent Age Progression Technology.

There have been, from the same sources from which springs the Official 9/11 Gospel, prosecutions of people who could not possibly be guilty, including a group of street people in Miami who, though penniless, offered to blow up the Sears Tower, blow up “the dam at Lake Toronto” wherever the Hell that is and thus flood downtown Chicago. And to travel the country putting poison in Salt Shakers at diners. That prosecution was “successful”.

And the same liars who told us that, told us the Official Gospel of 9/11. The faked bomb plots, resolved in the nick of time by the brave, dedicated and above all Not Professional Liars in the Police State Appparati whose jobs would be in jeopardy if Americans don’t believe their story line.

Lie after Constant Lie, and we’re supposed to believe their version of events or be judged as Stupid and Crazy.

The Korporate Backers of the TeaParty/Ku Klux Klown Hate Group have made money exploiting the hatred generated by the constant Muslim Bashing to slow implementation of what eventually has to be done, Public Option Medicare for Everybody.

In doing so, they’ve killed 120 Americans a day, more every month than were killed at 911. And that being only those Americans who could afford Private Health Insurance, and were denied Health Care anyway. Many more die uncounted because we don’t get to even see the Primary Care. Not diagnosed BEFORE death and certainly not diagnosed AFTER. Scrape the body off the sidewalk and a Police PIG “doctor” Coroner signs the paper end of story period.

That makes them Murders many times over and above the numbers of Americans killed on 9/11.

They, too, insist on the Official Gospel of 9/11 being believed, along with all the Corollary Lying about WMDs, Osama bin Laden, whatever Lies it takes to keep their wars going and sucking America dry.

Including the paid professional Liars at Fox networks. Two of whom I know have been paid more than a billion dollars apiece to turn chickenshit into chicken soup on FOX, over the years.

But we’re “crazy” for pointing that up as well.

Where the Sheep-like Idiots who believe every word spewed out of their lying mouths, regardless of how false, hey, they’re Smart and have good common sense. Four legs good, two legs Baaaaaaaadddddd!

And the notion that they obviously enjoy the violence committed against their Fellow Americans is “crazy” too.

Hairball Donald Trump, Capitalist Pig Supreme…

Tried to buy off the Community Center “ground zero mosque” developers, and thus, in his mind, prove that Money is Truly God and that Everybody would bow before it.
His stupid looking Rich Bitch ass was Rejected.
The words of Simon Peter to Simon Magus “Thy Money perish with thee, you have no part in this”

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.

If I were to judge on YOUR retarded standards, I’d go around murdering anybody displaying the Confederate Hate-Flag or any indication of being TeaBags, burning their homes and churches the way YOU and YOUR Retarded Comrades have urged your followers to do.

Further, somebody could justify by YOUR Retarded judgment of guilt, slaughter anybody with a light complexion or a Stupid Smirk on his Piggy Face like the portrait you posed for.

Every bit the haughty Arrogant Racist Klansman, aren’t you, Pastor? The PEOPLE you’re so presumptuously sending your Followers to murder are AMERICANS and that, sir, makes YOU and all of your Ku Klux Komrades Anti-American Terrorists.

Wall Street Journal in Anti-Mosque Rant.

Saying that moderate Islam doesn’t exist, that al Qa’eda and Taliban operatives would kill anybody who expressed in the Arab Countries any non-extremist position.
What a Fat Load Of Shit.
Again painting Islam as a monolithic entity, no differences between nations or even PEOPLE.
Let’s put that in Christian Western Moderate terms yes? Since the Crusades pitted Christian against Christian more often that Christian against Muslim, and every war since then, German chaplains instructing their soldiers in Both World Wars to go into battle screaming “Gott Mit Uns” meaning, God is on OUR side, and the British Chaplains same way instructing their Cannon Fodder to scream “God and King!” as they marched in an orderly fashion through the portals of Hell…
There must not be any such thing as a Moderate Christian because the Radicals, like for instance Michelle Malkin, and Sarah Palin, and Glenn Beck, would have us all killed if we expressed any form of moderation. Although that IS the ultimate logical end of their truly screwed up mindset.

There’s an internet rule that nobody is supposed to be compared to the Nazi regime no matter how much their plans for a New World Regime goose-steps right along with the Nazi philosophy. That’s a huge benefit for Sarah and Glenn and Michelle and Pam Geller and similar Nazi-think-alikes.

Do they consider the import of their making war against ANY religious belief? Especially in the name of what many other churches would consider Fringe Elements in for instance Sarah Palin’s AOG church or Glenn Beck’s LDS church, or Hannity’s Catholic Church. The reason they’re writing Slave Owner Thomas Jefferson as being not really a Founding Father is because he actually wrote a treatise on Separation of Church and State. Something they deny was the Holy and Unquestionable “original intent” of the Holy, Saintly and of Course Unanimously Christian (even though the first four presidents and Benjamin Franklin, Paul Revere and Samuel Adams were Deists, not Christian)

They’re writing off Jefferson not because of his slaves, a position of which they approve, National Burn the Confederate Flag Day 9/12 but because of his position on Religious Freedom implicitly and explicitly being dependent on No National Religion. He lived in Virginia, which before and even after the Revolution exchanged shots with the Catholic contingent in Maryland. Not a coincidence, but the very names Virginia and Maryland reflect the ongoing war in England at the time over Catholic-versus-Protestant.
Neither name has anything to do with the Virgin Mary. It’s Mary Stewart, Catholic, and Elizabeth Tudor the Virgin Queen of England who never married and officially never had sex,

Their bloody little Christian-on-Christian Crime Spree was just one corner of a Vast anti-Christian Christian Crusade which still goes on.
Both Virginia and Maryland not only each banned the other’s Major Denomination but also Jews, Quakers and Native American religions. Thomas Jefferson opposed that.

If the Muslim Countries had even HALF that kind of track record of Militancy there would be probably only two Muslim fellows left in the entire world, playing a mad game of Heavily Armed hide and seek, maybe peering at each other through sniper scopes as they each squeezed the trigger…

I can’t paint any human, not even me, as being a Perfect and Saintly type (although I come close)

(hey, flaunt what you got)
Neither can I demonize wholesale a quarter of the human beings in the world.
One thing I’ve learned, since I was old enough to choose and chose Christian, of all the religions in the world the one that probably has the Very Least room for casting stones is Christianity.

By the way, TeaBags, even if Obama WERE a Muslim, he’d still be the president. There’s no law requiring anybody to be of any religion in order to hold any public office. And there’s explicit Constitutional Law prohibiting any such a statute ever being passed. Bite me.

Also there’s a provision in Christian churches, because of the massive Christian on Christian ongoing crime spree, for somebody being secretly catholic or secretly protestant, or even secretly Jewish (view the book of Chadassah)(Esther) but there is NO such provision in Islam.

Guess opposing him on the strength of your Racial and Religious bigotry is a lot easier than opposing his continuance of the War, right? Especially since your TeaTard leadership supports the Continual War Everlasting.

Also if you did manage to have him arrested, deported, impeached, whatever, Joe Biden would be President. Not Sarah Palin.

Missionaries say they don’t proselytize

No, and that’s not why the Christian International Aid Mission was banished from Afghanistan, and why the US invasion reinstated it. Ask its volunteers why they don’t exert their humanitarian impulses for non-religious operations, then you’ll be getting past these pleas of feigned victimization. Missionary-tourism brochures extol bringing your faith “through the witness of humanitarian aid.”

We’re informed the missionaries killed in Afghanistan were bringing toothbrushes to youngsters who’d never seen toothbrushes before. Having floated that sparkling meme, the media would have us ignore the preponderance of photographs of smiling Afghan children, sporting cleaner smiles than the average American child. Not having “tooth brushes” does not mean their culture has subsisted without dental care. Perhaps the missionaries should like to impress us that they are bringing Velcro shoe-fasteners to children who know only shoe laces.

Reading about American missionaries on the receiving end of Islamic wrath, I found this quote by 23-year-old Allen Nunnally, caught up in the Ugandan bombing that targeted western missionaries assembled to watch the World Cup. The explosions killed a missionary from Delaware and wounded others from Pennsylvania. Even among United Methodists there are denominational loyalties.

“There was blood everywhere. There was blood on us,” Nunnally told The Birmingham News, but none of the Alabamans were hurt. “At first we didn’t know if it was ours. But we were literally untouched. We are so blessed and so in awe of God’s protection of us.”

Jealousy, envy, and the “natural superiority of Western Civilization”

First we need to define a few basic terms. Jealousy and Envy are often used interchangeably. They are not interchangeable. Jealousy is the notion that somebody else wants what you have, whether it’s based in truth or in sick fear. Envy is the desire to possess something somebody else has.

In America, most of the resolved homicides fall under those two motives, to the point that when a person is shot in his/her home, her/his spouse or lover is almost never immediately dismissed as a suspect.

Envy takes the form of Avarice, Envy and Avarice are described theologically in the Seven Deadly Sins. Avarice leads to the taking of those things of which one is Envious.

When that is done at gunpoint, it’s called Robbery, and if one crosses the line between Armed Robbery and actually pulling the trigger, it’s Capital Murder. What level of money would you wager that those charged with murder in the commission of a robbery are far more likely than those charged with murder of a “cheating” lover or spouse, to receive a Death Penalty or Life w/o Parole?

Now, the Non-Western civilizations are accused of promoting Terrorism either through Jealousy or Envy of our “superiority”… but are we superior?

One of the things that gets thrown around is the notion of Honor Killing. What, specifically, would be the biggest difference between killing your mate over alleged or actual adultery, and on the other hand, killing your mate over alleged or actual adultery?

If you don’t go all the way, don’t kill, and merely beat your mate into a very dangerous medical condition in a “ritual” manner or if you do it in a non-ritual manner? Where is the difference? If a court system in one civilization condones by default, through lack of actual protections for the battered spouse, or a wink-wink nudge-nudge say-no-more Patriarchal lesser punishment for the Killer Spouse, How is it substantially different in a Religious Zealot society, like America, or another Religious Zealot society like Saudi Arabia, Iran, Afghanistan?

Is the murdered or battered wife of a Christian in a Christian society more or less, better or worse, than the same scenario in another culture or faith? Mind you, the apologists for bombing the living Hell out of other countries often avoid using the Religious angle, they say instead the “christian oriented” Superior Culture of America v. the “muslim dominated savage infidels” in the Rest of the World.

Much like the racist notion that one’s RACE isn’t the primary divider, it’s the White Anglo Saxon Protestant CULTURE and Heritage that’s superior to the just-by-a-coincidence Non-White, Non-English-nor-Pretestant cultures they’re ummm… not necessarily putting down as Inferior, mind you, more like “The White Anglo Saxon CULTURE is ever so much better, you understand, we don’t think you’re necessarily not as good as us, we’re just Better Than You.”

A slight warning here, when you go around saying you’re that much better than others that you get to run their lives or oppress, repress and suppress them if they don’t allow you, they’ll hit back. Hard.

When you take that to the next level and say that you can justify bombing their countries and killing their people, you’ll get hit again.

The “Superior” Military Might of the Empire is proving to be far less an advantage than originally thought…

“How DARE those rag-head sand-niggers continue to Defy OUR mighty and superior Army?”
–The epitaph of yet another fallen empire

Silly Palin praises fallen Medal of Honor marine, but fails to note a couple things

One is that the actions he was taking, along with his comrades, when he won the medal, were War Crimes. The use of Military Force to compel people to obey his Terrorist Government. Civilian People. Making War against CIVILIANS.

The other thing Mrs Palin neglected to mention is that neither she nor her Accomplices in the Bush and now Obama administration, and their Oil Company puppetmasters, gave two shits more about the life of the Marine or any of his 6000+ fellow soldiers who were slaughtered in the act of their commissions of War Crimes, than she or her Accomplices care about the Civilians who were either enslaved or Murdered at their command. She makes money from every soldier who dies, and every one of their victims who dies or is imprisoned as well.
If her OWN son gets his stupid head blown off, she’ll make money from that as well, AND use his death to make herself “look good”. Typical Warmongering Money-worshipper.

The Dollar Bill is their god. They even call it “The Almighty”. It only makes it that much more blasphemous when they go to church and pretend that the atrocities they commit are done for Jesus or any other name of Jehovah.

DC Sniper John Allen Muhammad was early post-911 Muslim Avenger

john allen muhammad beltway sniperWhat morbid fortuity that as President Obama heads to Fort Hood to commemorate the victims of renegade Nidal Malik Hasan, preparations are being made for the execution of another Islamic avenger, the Beltway sniper. As Americans satiate their blood lust against Muslims in the person of John Allen Muhammad who is scheduled to die tonight by lethal injection, perhaps comparisons to Major Hasan will draw attention to the ideological motives behind the 2002 shooting spree. We don’t have to like them, but it would obviously pay us to listen.

Not to excuse the Washington DC killings, nor suggest that the Gulf War veteran and convert to Islam is any less a cold-blooded murderer, but TV crime shows have painted he and accomplice Lee Boyd Malvo as sadistic serial killers, completely burying the sociopolitical elements which tie the snipers to the Global War On Terror/Islam, the legacy of the African American struggle, and its extreme incarnation as the Black Liberation Army.

Muhammad maintains his innocence, primarily because the evidence implicating him remains circumstantial. He was convicted on the strength of partner Malvo’s testimony, and recently lost a Supreme Court appeal. In his testimony, Malvo described three phases to Muhammad’s murderous plans. First was to be the sniper killings, which the two calculated could claim six victims a day. Phase two involved plans to murder a policeman and set bombs at the site of his funeral, to claim an unprecedented toll of police casualties. With money extorted from the government in return for a cessation to the killings, Muhammad and Malvo planned to retreat to Canada, where they planned to build a Utopian community for other disenfranchised African American men, where they would be trained for bigger and more numerous missions against the US.

While I can understand US public figures having to distance themselves from Muhammad, I’m not sure why the organizations speaking out for US political prisoners weren’t showing their solidarity for his motives. Were Muhammad’s ambitions much different from the freedom fighters of the EZLN? Does the rejection of Muhammad reflect the post 9/11 pallor of insurrection in word only?

The case against Major Hasan proceeds apace with the usual unofficial press leaks. I heard reporters site sources who don’t want to be identified by name, in deference to the legal constraints of the ongoing investigation. The accusations they make against Hasan, however, for the benefit of the media outlets, reflects not a concern for Hasan’s due process, but rather their fear for getting themselves in trouble. But the media is eating it up.
