14 yr-old Philip Chism, black, charged as adult because Trayvon Martin

George Zimmerman's MO has nothing on the US justice system. High school freshman Philip Chism is accused of murdering Boston teacher Colleen Ritzer. Though he's only 14, Chism is being arraigned as an adult. The media is playing it down but Philip Chism is black. You'd think somewhere in America, district attorneys want to prosecute an African American juvenile AS A juvenile because, you know, Obama and shit. Neatly bookending this story today, white felon and Kennedy kin Michael Skakel, has been granted a retrial. Skakel was 39 when the law finally caught up with him, but Skakel was TRIED AS A JUVENILE (AT 39) because he was 15 when the murder was committed. In a further flaunting of priviledge, the judge granted Skakel a retrail because the judge decided his original defense must have been inadequate. That should set quite a precedent for anyone who's been failed by a public defender, which would be EVERYBODY! But probably this precedent will only apply to everybody who's white, and a Kennedy.   Grace is only afforded to juveniles who are white, consistent with Western disregard for the children of the Global South whose adult worklife begins even before puberty.

Bored Oklahoma teen murder suspects not bored or under-educated enough to be considered teens

Bored Oklahoma teens who shot a random jogger in the back are being tried as adults not juveniles because "it was an adult crime"; though killing while bored seems a juvenile crime by definition. So does immediately confessing a motive, "we were bored," to the police, it would seem to me. But there's more. Despite the confessions, it was not immediately clear who pulled the trigger as the three teens trailed their victim, Australian college baseball player Christopher Lane, in their car, then sped away to find a next target. But that didn't stop Oklahoma police from charging just TWO of the boys with first degree murder, bail denied, with the third considered an accessory. I've provided the mug shots to give you a hint. For which 15 and 16 year-old do you think the state of Oklahoma is seeking the death penalty? (Spoiler: YES) And the older accessory --17 but white-- gets bail and will be tried as a juvenile.   Pundits deride African American leaders for not decrying the Lane murder like they did that of Trayvon Martin, presumably because the victim was white. But I'll ask where is the community outcry for young James Edwards and Chancy Luna, joy-killers they may be? Though I understand full well that other than the "doing it for fun" headlines, this event is unexceptional. Black children bear the brunt of law enforcement everyday, our prison system follows in the lynching tradition.

Florida open season on black teenagers

George Zimmerman has been found NOT GUILTY of chasing and shooting dead a black teenager for being a "fucking punk". Now what? George W. Bush got away with murder, he and Zimmerman are peas in the same simian-eyed pod. Yes a Mack Truck might have been as good as a guilty verdict against lynch mob of one Zimmerman, but that was yesterday. Today the system is broken. Will "Justice For Trayvon Martin" be served by calling for Zimmerman's blood? For the jurors'? Our society is racist, the justice system corrupt. To root out injustice, let's start with those who exploited the Zimmerman pony show, distracting the public from concurrent Supreme Court malfeasance and the kangaroo court assassinating Bradley Manning. If Manning is declared guilty, we've no use for any authority. But let's ask, what public outcry could go beyond the reaction that is clearly expected and as such, orchestrated?

Israel caught birth controlling the Falash Mura, ethnically cleansing Jews of false flesh tone

How's this for a Wikipedia item update? After five years of having denied the practice, the Israeli government admits it is secretly administering birth control injections to its Falash Mura population, reducing that community's birth rate by half. Falash Mura you may ask, translates to "horse of the raven" --consult Wikipedia if you'd like to see some champion dissembling from the racist imagery of that term-- and refers to the descendents of Beta Israel, or Ethiopian Jews, contested as improbably Jewish on account of their skin color making Semitic Europeans uncomfortable. Israel has very reluctantly offered birthright invites to their Ethiopian Diasporans. Israel's Law of Return is not to be confused with the International Right of Return, to which all refuges are entitled, which Israel refuses to grant Palestinians, the original and more likely descendents of ALPHA ISRAEL. But getting back to this breaking story on Zionist racism, it turns out Israel has been preemptively ethnically cleansing their darkies, no worse than the US does with ghettos, drugs, cheap guns, and the prison industrial complex.

Obama cried because the Connecticut schoolchildren were not Pakistani. Is that statement untrue?

So, no, the twenty schoolchildren killed at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown Connecticut were not Pakistani. That’s apparently what everyone is so upset about. I’m rather embarrassed how distraught Americans are about the Connecticut school shooting, considering equivalent child-massacres happen daily in Pakistan, victims of US drones, to no public outcry. In Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, and all the far reaches of our multinational corporate empire, child killing is public policy, far from being a subject of public anguish. Now I’m besieged with invitations to join local and statewide protests to “end gun violence.” I say YES, so long as I can ALSO commemorate the thousands of children killed by US drones and US troops. “Don’t politicize this tragedy” is the indignant objection. Classic. Might there be a value to hopping aboard this bandwagon opportunity to call for gun control and mental-healthcare reform? Maybe by showing solidarity with this profound revulsion to our cultural violence, a social justice movement can broaden a reciprocal sense of solidarity for the larger pool of its victims? I doubt it. Showing antiwar support for veterans of war, for example, hasn’t yet tempered anyone’s senseless enthusiasm for militarism or blind patriotism, or I’ve yet to see it. A disclaimer: my apparent insensitive is helped by the fact that I don't watch television. I'm guessing the media are really cooking this tragedy to an unrelenting boil. Probably my lack of exposure has rendered me unfathomably incapable of addressing the subject with sufficient tact. I've no idea the orchestrated catharsis indulged upon the viewers over dead American children. My profound condolences to the parents, but curses upon the media for exploiting the event to condemn lone crazies and not to curb the culture of violence which breeds them. Frank Lloyd Wright said television was chewing gum for the eyes. Turn it off. You'll quickly see what an emotional maelstrom they've made of the Sandy Hook shootings. Imagine if they created that kind of drama about war's atrocity. We'd have viewers clamoring to end war. This might give you some idea about why the ongoing Sandy Hook fallout leaves such a bad taste. My advice to nearly all Americans parents upset about the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting: get a hold of yourselves. These weren’t your children. Your schools and schoolchildren are many leagues out of harm’s way. Connecticut may as well be Pakistan for all you care.

The racist religion of the IDF soldiers

Copycatting the racist Christian soldiers of Nazi Germany in the past and the Far Right Christians in the US military of the present, the so-called Israeli Defense Forces sing and dance religious songs as they murder others of another race and culture. From the Israeli press comes this scene of Jewish racism and religious hatred in action... Video: Soldiers Keep Up the Spirit, Sing: We Rely on God

If Israel can intercept Hamas rockets, it can stop pounding Gazans

If the Iron Dome works, Israel won't have to retaliate after each Hamas rocket! These acts of desperation by the besieged Gazans, victims of Israel's occupation, will become like the rocks thrown by Palestinian youth, futile. Hopefully Israel will expand its dome of impunity to protect Gazans too, from whoever is striking at them.

ARGO is a near deftly crafted thriller, jingoist agitprop, full-on Islamophobic mockumentary

This movie is rated AYFKM-- Film critics are unanimous in their praise of ARGO, Ben Affleck's retelling of an Iran Hostage Crisis era escape caper. Either these reviews also reflect media agencies uniformly shrugging off Argo's obvious anti-Iranian jingoism or these authors are inured to crude Islamophobic propaganda. Whatever the film's highly praised period piece accuracies, the Angry Arab and bearded terrorist stereotype are pure post-9/11 refinements. The ill-fitting eyeglass frames, face-obstructing Prell hair, and presumed fitness-less sloop-shouldered physiques pretend to lampoon everyone of that era, but the character assassination is precision targeted at Iranians, all of them. "Mockumentary" is meant to describe a mock documentary. Argo is not a documentary, although it asserts to be historical, but most assuredly it mocks. Borat couldn't have made this film more offensive. If the Muslim world wasn't in an uproar about a fictional Hollywood video disparaging to Islam, Argo would do it. What a mockery to pretend that real Zionist movie moguls aren't laughing about a story that depicts Jewish movie industryists pranking Iran with a fake production they called Ar-Go Fuck Yourself. Let's dispel right away the pretense of historical accuracy. The painstaking period details, and mimicked video footage is meant to lend a scent of authenticity to a CIA personnel expatriation that did happen, but much of the villain-at-their-heels tension was fabricated. Poetic license might excuse drama, were it not for the added perk of vilifying, parodying and humiliating a people. I counted no insult spared. Angry Arabs (the Persians aren't Arab -- do they filmmakers know or care?) never attenuating their cacophonous accusatory gibberish. Death squads circulating house to house, Muslim-garbed women hypocritically enjoying Western fast food, every dark face a humorless compassionless fanatic, their soldiers hirsute menacing mongrels who do everything by force. I'm off to research Argo's fabrications which so flavor the Iran-bashing. For the time being I can surmise two. The film assert that the White House pulled the operation at the last minute, prompting ballsy improvisation when our hero agent went rogue. Later he was awarded the CIA' highest honor. How likely was it that they gave a medal to an agent who really defied every link of his chain of command? Unless he didn't. And second, the movie plot has Iran's Revolutionary Guards so hot on their heels that the guards shoot their way through airport doors and mount pickup trucks to brandish guns as they chase a departing jumbo jet along the runway, providing Argo that Black Hawk Down, post-apocalypse Iraq, Libyan rebel stereotype sent up so well in Team America. The tarmac scene is witnessed only by the movie audience and the CIA extraction specialist as he looks out the airplane window. None of his charges sees it because they are of course real people who could do interviews and swiftly confirm the exaggeration.

Randy Newman dreams of a White President and a sarcasm-enabled internet

"He won't be the brightest, but he'll be the whitest, and I'll vote for that!" sings Randy Newman of his dream president, drawing the reaction he got when he penned "I'm a Redneck" or "Short People." America needs a laugh track to know what's funny. In real life we look at each other when we don't get something, but online, those slow on the uptake know only to be "first" with an indignant response, as usual, humorless. Newman's youtube vid even includes his lyrics: I'M DREAMING George Washington was a white man Adams and Jefferson too Abe Lincoln was a white man, probably And William McKinley the whitest of them all Shot down by an immigrant in Buffalo And a star fell out of heaven I'm dreaming of a white President Just like the ones we've always had A real live white man Who knows the score How to handle money or start a war Wouldn't even have to tell me what we were fighting for He'd be the right man If he were a (everybody!) I'm dreaming of a white President Someone whom we can understand Someone who knows where we're coming from And that the law of the jungle is not the law of this land In deepest darkest Africa nineteen three A little boy says, "Daddy, I just discovered relativity. A big eclipse is coming And I'll prove it. Wait and see!" "You better eclipse yourself outta here, son And find yourself a tree There's a lion in the front yard And he knows he won't catch me." How many little Albert Einsteins Cut down while in their prime? How many little Ronald Reagans Gobbled up before their time? I don't believe in evolution But it does occur to me, What if little William Howard Taft had to face a lion Or God forbid, climb a tree? Where would this country be? I'm dreaming --Buh buh buh buh 'Cause things have never been this bad So he won't run the hundred in ten seconds flat So he won't have a pretty jump shot Or be an Olympic acrobat So he won't know much about global warming Is that really where you're at? He won't be the brightest, perhaps But he'll be the whitest And I'll vote for that Whiter than this? Yes Whiter than this? Yes Whiter than this? Yes Whiter than this? Oh yeah

More Jewish hate attacks in the news

Because of US and Israeli government policies of hate, and systematic efforts to destroy all of Palestine, Jewish residents of the Apartheid state of Israel are increasingly engaging in hate attacks on the Arabs they have yet to push outside of the boundaries of their hate filled Jewish supremacist country. See the latest incident... Israel arrests teen girls over hate attack on Palestinians. Though some of the perpetrators are getting arrested, the IDF (Israeli military) engages in these sorts of hate crimes against Arabs in routine and banal manner as a daily standard of Israeli government policy.

Like Princess Cruises’ management is what US society has let itself become

US society is like a giant luxury cruiser in international waters which is always saying 'Sorry' as it sometimes actively and most often passively, repeatedly kills people of other races and nationalities. In short, American society is a lot like the criminal Princess Cruises luxury ship, which sailed on by three Black Panamanians signaling a distress call at sea, so as not to inconvenience its mainly White clients on board. Here, in this event, one can see a microcosmic version of all that is wrong with US society today. Two people died due to the indifference of Princess Cruises. And thousands upon thousands of Iraqis and Afghans die due to the indifference of Americans as a whole. Princess Cruises sorry for ignoring Panama castaways. Yes, Princess Cruises is sorry, SORRY that it is getting bad publicity for DELIBERATELY leaving these 3 Black men to their fate of being abandoned at sea, while their own rather well-to-do White customers sailed on by, even as several of them had the heart to urge that the ship stop and give aid. Princess Cruises says it is all a big misunderstanding.... 'a breakdown in communication'. However, ship records show otherwise and the Panamianian government has now filed criminal homicide charges against the ship's captain, Edward Perrin. The problem of this attitude of Perrin's and Princess Cruises' is much bigger than just this one affair though, as the previous cruiseliner disasters already showed... Italy cruise ship disaster could take toll on industry In fact, in industry after industry (nuclear, oil, cruise liner vacation, real estate, banking, medical insurance, and on and on goes the list) capitalist corporations show themselves to be totally indifferent to the well being of the people they supposedly serve, and to other folk whose paths they merely cross in usually most destructive a manner. YES, indifferent Princess Cruises style management is exactly what the US has let itself become under its corporate dictatorship. And the racism of our society surounds us everyday, for those who will only open their eyes a little and think. Why should we allow Princess Cruises to escape liability for its murderous indifference to life? We shouldn't. Unfortunately our own government will most probably continue to not regulate adequately the cruise liner industry located INSIDE the US like Princess Cruises is. Plus, allowing the boats to sail under foreign flags shows how corrupt these enterprises really are, and how corrupt is our own government for allowing just that. That practice should be brought to a halt.

USA – Land of the Not so Investigated Hate Crime

As the George Zimmerman case plays out, we in the US still live in a Land of the Not Investigated, racially motivated Hate Crime. The latest Hate Crime seems to have happened just last Sunday in Arizona, and has received scant attention in the US press. See Phoenix area's Fox News' inadequate coverage 1 of 2 Border Shooting Victims in Eloy Identified for minimal info about this case. Seems that hate attacks on 'illegal aliens' are hardly worthy of coverage per our US press corps. Notice that one of the victims of this racist attack was from Guatemala, a country ravished by a genocide perpetrated by a US backed government and with US trained troops. No doubt that none of this mattered to the military camouflaged assassins who ambushed these people. Wonder if they themselves had US military training in their own backgrounds? What better place to have racism glued to one's soul than in the US military, where racism is essential to how most US troops see the rest of the world from their US-centric mindset. Kill! Kill! Kill! Code of honor to do so. The gun toting soldier in the US trains the gun toting NRA thug to be a gun toting thug. These vet groups then become a gun loving lobby that helps make the US MORE a racist minded society where killing of some by more mainstream others becomes a rather accepted norm to many. Time to call a halt to this increasing mayhem. Time to stop the impunity for the uniforms of America that they currently enjoy and count as their privilege. Time to change for the better instead of simply accepting more and more of the carnage as our future. Time for a new country, one not run by military trained gun toting nuts. However, we still live in the Land of the Not so Investigated Hate Crime so the spin is in that perhaps perhaps this was a 'drug related ambush', etc. Whatever? It's pretty clear that little to no investigation probably will probably get done though. The two victims were not considered all that important and nobody in Arizona law enforcement circles really wants to uncover the possibly incriminating activities of their Minutemen friends. More dirt to simply be swept underneath the rug in racist USA. Hey! Let's not let them so easily do it though.

Police response to Tulsa killings contrasts to killing of blacks elsewhere because in Tulsa the cops are not protecting those seen as their own

A couple of White men killing Blacks ad lib in Tulsa, and the police have responded quickly and appropriately and arrested the responsible parties, so far. But in Florida it remains a different story as the police apparently there see George Zimmerman as being somehow basically one of their own. Th reason for that is the intervention of the father or the vigilante assassin, and how that and his local political allies influenced decision making. In Pasadena, California, the police just blew away another Black teenager and they then afterwards tried to charge another man entirely with the charge of 'manslaughter'! That charge did not fly but still the cops allowed themselves to walk scotch free despite their unnecessary killing of a man. See Family of Black Teen Killed by Pasadena Cops Alleges Racial Profiling for that story of cops protecting their own, as they themselves commit unlawful acts. And in Chicago, Black ex-cop shot 28 times by White cops is found guilty, fights for justice the cops shot away at a Black man 28 times, and then charged their victim with 'assault'! The cops walked away free of any investigation of what they did in their attempted murder of a Black ex-cop. Protecting their own once again, gets both cops and soldiers free rides so very often! These two uniformed groups apparently see themselves way above the law themselves and their government bosses see it that way as well, because The People have allowed democracy to be totally stripped away from our society. Let's not let them continue to allow Robert Bales and the other soldiers to get off, despite their slaughter down of innocent children in Afghanistan. Cops and soldiers should not be above all law. That's just too dangerous for all of us. Bales needs to be sent back to Afghanistan to face the law there for his crimes, and we the American People need to demand that the US government and the Pentagon stop hindering the investigation there of what happened. Throwing dollar bills at the survivors of these dead civilians simply is not any real justice for them. We should be ashamed of what our government and military officials are doing. And we should feel personally threatened by it as well.

‘We want an arrest. Shot in the chest!’

Thousands upon thousands of marchers today were active nationwide demanding that justice be served on George Zimmerman for his assassination of Travon Martin in Florida, with whom he started a confrontation with because he thought it suspicious that a Black teenager was walking in his neighborhood. Americans simply cannot allow gun toting nuts to kill people ad lib and have local cops take no action to prosecute these racially paranoid fools. Shame on the Sanford, Florida police for how they mishandled the case! Shame on America for largely having accepted as the norm the routine racism of American municipal police forces for so damn long. See Trayvon Martin marchers to Sanford, Fla., police: 'We want an arrest. Shot in the chest' ...Yes, we want George Zimmerman arrested for his murder of Trayvon Martin NOW!

Go back to your country, Terrorist?

US government militarism occupies this woman's country and kills over a million of its citizens over several decades, and yet it is the Iraqi born woman who is labeled a terrorist by her killer? All decent Americans need to demand Justice for Shaima Al Awadi!   Is this killer of this poor woman perhaps a soldier or vet, too?... because American occupations of other peoples' countries now fuels this racist violence running rampant throughout the US. See Iraqi mother, Shaima Al Awadi, dies days after being viciously beaten with tire iron.

Right wing blogger asshole Andrew Breitbart died of shame, obviously

More likely gout. Obviously Breitbart's body lacked the bilious elasticity of Bill O'Reilly or Rush Limbaugh. Speaking of which, were you in the loop on this email joke? A young black Limbaugh asks his mom; "Mommy, how come I’m black and you’re white?" To which his mother replied: "Don’t even go there Rush! From what I can remember about that party, you’re lucky you don’t bark!"   Probably you'd find that joke more crude than either a Limbaugh or Breitbart mother would deserve, but imagine that the actual subject of the email was President Obama and his mother. The real story is that such an email was forwarded by Montana Chief US District Judge Richard Cebull to his inner circle, with the following personal note: “Hope it touches your heart like it did mine.”

Growth Busters’ all white cast asks dark skinned people not to have kids

COLORADO SPRINGS- Local filmmaker, city council candidate, and critic of urban sprawl, Dave Gardner, screened his new doc GROWTHBUSTERS to a receptive hometown audience last night, on the heels of its world premier in Washington DC. Gardner has long defined his personal mission as questioning the wisdom of "growth". Finally his unpopular theme is gaining traction. With GrowthBusters Gardner addresses economic growth, rampant consumption, carbon footprints and over-development, building to what he's decided is the most elephantine challenge in the room, global population growth. Except, I'm sorry, that's an elephant of another color. I resisted the Q & A, not wanting to pull down the evening's celebratory curve. A giddy panel of white folk is for me as much a temptation as the easy target Gardner chose. In the privacy of the internet, we at Not My Tribe don't have bubbles we're too reluctant to burst. Dave Gardner's long unrewarded campaign against our city's recidivist, graft-driven, and ever tragically unsustainable growth is so damn laudable, and his chopping away at the Capitalist assumptions of neoclassical economists is so urgently pertinent. But by folding both into the Inconvenient Truth of exponential global population rise, does Gardner mean the Colorado Springs audience takeaway to be we must distribute condoms to our Machiavellian land developers? Let me first applaud Gardner's critique of our region's imbecilic growth. It's ugly and residents are unhappy but powerless to depose the greedy exploitative speculators in charge. A memorable segment describes the Southern Delivery system being built to bring Pueblo water northward to serve El Paso County's endless eastward developments. The energy to pump that water uphill will require the output of an average coal fired power plant, that much more emissions, pollution and coal ash. Over the years Gardner has proven to be more than a gadfly battling our land barons. When he challenged Jerry Heimlicher, a pro-growth incumbent for a seat at the city council, the otherwise like-minded progressive adversary beat him, only to resign after his victory to make a sudden move out of town, leaving the position to be chosen by the usual undemocratic powers, looking suspiciously like his campaign had been a desperate measure to keep Gardner's anti-growth voice off the council. There's more to applaud about Gardner locally, but first-- I know this is easy to overlook in Colorado Springs, but Dave, the demographic character of the Stargazer Theater audience was what, last night, entirely white? It was, and probably not coincidentally, the dozens of experts you interviewed onscreen were also with one single exception white. Further, I'm sure we can agree the economic class represented was equally homogeneous; let's call it comfortable. Tell us then, Dave, what does Middle America's middle class white birthrate add to the worrisome arc of population growth? Not that I think any socioeconomic group should address itself to out-breeding the next, but an audience with a zero or negative birthrate hardly needs to concentrate on curbing its numbers. Anticipating the challenges of exponential population growth is important, but

Johannes Mehserle, free, Eli Lilly employees, scot free, Pop Stars doctor, Jailed.

Only, the PIG Johannes Mehserle deliberately shot Oscar Grant, in the back, while Mr Grant was face down on the sidewalk, with the 200 pound PIG Johannes Mehserle kneeling on him. Mr Grant was also already handcuffed. The PIG Johannes Mehserle claimed he though he had his Taser instead of his double-action (rare) Sig-Sauer automatic pistol and was tasering Mr Grant. Why taser a handcuffed man in the first place? Because PIGS, like Johannes Mehserle and every other uniformed badge, are sadistic and sexually enjoy the pain of others, especially when the Others are helpless. Yeah, I do think that of cops. Cops beat it into me, while I was handcuffed and on occasion wile strapped into chairs, for talking bad about them and "hurting their feelings". Awwww... Poor widdle cwybaby PIGS. What will you do, beat it out of me? While I'm handcuffed of course because you would never engage in equal combat. There are fewer than a million website references to Johannes Mehserle. How many do you think would be about the Doctor? I'm deliberately not feeding the bear on this... Ready, set, GOOGLE! Ooops... more than 72 million in a tenth of a second. Pushing dope with a doctorate usually doesn't get you any jail time. Ask Eli Lilly and company, thousands of doctorates in their company and almost as many lawyers. Lawyers who make sure the doctors don't go to jail for KILLING people with drugs such as Zyprexa, which by the company admission over a DECADE ago actually causes and exacerbates inflammations of the liver, kidneys and pancreas, as in: Instant Diabetes How many Eli Lilly employees are serving time or have felony records for that? NOT A SINGLE ONE. The doctor/dealer/candy man is being pilloried by people, many of whom protested the murder of Oscar Grant, and one helluvalotta more who protested against so much as an Investigation into the actions of Johannes Mehserle or any other killer kop. The ones who are Back The Badge morons are the ones who scream loudest that the Doctor should be punished to the fullest extent of the law. Deliberate murder by Cops? Not a problem, according to the so-called Law and Order fanatics. ("WE make the Laws and YOU obey our orders, or we'll kill you!") A truly accidental homicide? 72 million web comments. It had to be accidental, drug dealers seldom deliberately kill the people who lay the golden egg. The Gossip "news" shows, tabloids in electronic form actually, and the actual tabloids, plus the "legitimate" press and broadcast news, have been on this issue like Stink on Shit since day one. With not-quite insinuations that the doctor was guilty from day one. No poisoning the jury pool there, no sir! When they preface the Slander Session with "Every accused is innocent until proven guilty, of course" I automatically cringe. It's like hearing "well, if he had done nothing wrong, why would the police investigate him?" "If you've done nothing wrong, why should you fear the gestapo, citizen?" or "I'm

The Stark truth about race in Texas.

Of course, now the Land Commissioner is putting through using his State Agency an official OK for issuing license plates with the confederate Hate Flag for a group called Sons Of Confederate Veterans. A group for which I qualify but I would never darken their doorway because I believ Know For A FACT that they're celebrating a four-year long continuous 9/11 Terror Attack against Americans, for the purpose of the "states right" to use state funds and state police and state militia to enforce the perpetual denial of every human right to Americans based on the color of their skin. They're a front group for the Klan in other words. But that's not the whole story nor where I got the title for this post. I had a neighbor in Polytechnic Heights, a neighborhood in Ft Worth. Her name was Mrs Stark. Age 98. One early morning, I wasn't there, I was in Oklahoma at Job Corps learning to cook.... she was struck by the Poly Rapist. Who was actually more than one person. Struck repeatedly with a hammer then raped, then laft to die. For all that, she lived another week or so in intensive care. The attackers were a youth gang. Teenagers. And black. But that isn't really relevant, they didn't rape little old ladies because they were white or the attackers black, it wasn't revenge for slavery or anything like that. They were just cowards, out for the cheapest thrill available. Which during that long hot summer was rape and murder. It wasn't racially based, it was based on them finding the easiest victims, the ones most helpless. God help the stupid bastard who tries to tell me that White Americans never attacked or don't still attack the most helpless victims, they're not off the hook. This was the late 70s, legalized segregation wasn't a very distant memory. There was a very half-hearted offer from the Klan to patrol the streets. Yeah right. They were fishing for a way to look like martyrs, prevented from Nobly Protecting The Elderly by Liberals. While the Stark truth was that they wouldn't have been able to do it. They, too, prefer their victims to be as helpless as possible. They were going to try to play it up as a Black vs White conflict. They don't have the intestines for a real New Civil War but they'll start one anyway and hide behind the real combatants. Same as they do in Iraq and Afghanistan. They'll try to use the "reverse racism" issue to propel Perry or some other Racist Moron into the White House. Count the bleeding corpses later but get their short term profit guaranteed. Hell, they might even dig up Mrs Stark, hopefully not literally, as a rallying cry for their Hate-based (per) Version of Christianity. The best weapon against Hatred is Truth. Hate needs lies to manifest itself and perpetuate itself. Lies like those spread by the Sons Of Confederate Veterans, "Heritage" groups, and the polish

Police attack Occupy Oakland and Occupy Atlanta

Not so good news from Atlanta and Oakland where popo busted up the occupation with tear gas and swinging clubs. This in spite of the fact that no violent acts or threats of violence had come from the occupiers. I'll preface this next statement, because some on the MightMakesRight Wing don't have very good reading skills, Tear Gas is sometimes lethal just as Nerve Gas(es) are not universally lethal, many people have died from tear gas and many people have survived being gassed with The Other. It's not a question of whether Tear Gas is lethal but a mere question of relative lethality. Much like the difference between being shot with a .38 special and being shot with a 12 gauge shotgun and that relative to being shot several times with a belt fed machine gun. The Oakland PIGS, famous for hiring a white supremacist from the former Rhodesia who subsequently MURDERED an American Black Man, Oscar Grant, by shooting Mr Grant in the back while he was laying on the concrete.... Then let him get away with that murder through a deliberately botched investigation (Blue Wall)... Stated that the Oakland Occupation was "a danger to the public" so they used poison gas on the CITIZENS involved in constitutionally protected free speech and freedom peaceably to assemble. And arrested 140 of the citizens for daring to criticize their Wall Street whoremasters. Thus making sure that the only medical statements about the injuries suffered by the Citizens would come from the Jail Doctors, in other words: Their Fellow Pigs who can Always be counted on to join them in the Blue Wall. "gassing their own citizens" is Officially the reason for which Saddam Hussein was hanged, with the full blessings and unofficially at the command of the American Corporate Government who had supplied the gas in the first place. Unofficially his "crime" was not being Pinocchio to the Wall Street Government's Gepetto. The same reason Occupy is being attacked with lethal gas across America and in every country over which Wall Street claims ownership. How DARE the puppets tear off their strings and declare themselves to be Real People!

Gilad Shalit trade goes to Israel’s head

But that's not news. Trade ratio of 1,000 Palestinian prisoners exchanged for one Gilad Shalit could not but encourage the Zionist notion that Israeli Jews are worth more than your average cretinous Palestinian. Of course, Palestine held only one prisoner, versus Israel's 6,000, so Israelis might consider that Shalit was worth only 16% of real exchange rate. Mathematicians might wonder how any multiple of non-Jews could be considered equal to one Jew. Apartheid suggests you don't want to be compared to a low-life nothing, especially at a magnitude. Really, are Palestinians supposed to make peace with that? The trade is complicated by several factors. One, Shalit gets to go home, while many of the Palestinians are being released into exile. Likewise, Shalit returns to safety while the Israel is free to detain Palestinians at whim, those released or any multitude of other, their relatives for example, or have them killed in airstrikes. So it's actually a raw deal. Israel retains 5,000 captives, but if you count Gaza, described as an open air prison, what's the number really?
