Nelson Mandela – a legacy

July 2, 2008

Nelson Mandela, former prisoner, former anti-aparthied activist, former president of the ANC, has been taken off of the US terrorism watch list-finally. As unbelievable as it may sound, this Nobel Peace Prize winner has been on the terrorism watch list because of his anti-aparthied and anti-racism activities. In other words, because he has devoted his life to ridding South Africa of the racism imposed by a white minority government, and was imprisoned for 27 years fighting for equality for his people, the US puts him on the terrorist watch list.

Actually, it fits right in with the racist, scared-to-death-of-anyone-who-doesn’t-look-like-us mania that’s so pervasive in the US these days.

Mandela is in high demand world wide as a trusted advisor and mediator and is perhaps the most well respected elder statesman alive and still active. How respected is he?

He can get anyone on the phone. “When Mandela calls, the president takes the call, no question,” said a White House spokesman.

This is a man who has made a difference, and a positive one for his people. This is a man who commands respect and deserves it. This is a man who will maintain a revered legacy and take his place in the history books as someone who devoted his life to peace and the advancement of mankind.

George W. Bush, you are no Nelson Mandela. You couldn’t shine his shoes.

9 Go Free After Raping 10 Year Old Girl

December 11, 2007

bradleya.jpgUnbelievable. A female judge in Australia has given either probation or suspended sentences to nine men who raped a 10 year old Aboriginal girl. Justifying her ruling, racist pig-woman Judge Sarah Bradley (pictured) told the nine scumbags that the girl “probably agreed to have sex with you.”

And of course, a 10 year old girl is mature enough to make that decision, right judge?

Sarah Bradley obviously needs some “up close and personal” experience with gang rape so she has a clearer understanding of the process. Finding males willing to stick it to that uptight ugly bigot could prove challenging, however.

Boni Robertson, an Aboriginal activist in Queensland, said there could be no excuse for the judge’s decision.

“There is nothing culturally, there is nothing morally, there is nothing socially and there is definitely nothing legally that would ever allow this sort of decision to be made,” she said.

Does Sarah remind you of the prosecutor down in good ol’ Jena, Louisiana? Guess its good to know that the US is not alone in perpetuating bigotry and racism.

World Gone Mad

Genocide: A Pretty Safe Business

December 2, 2007

swastika1.pngA Jewish human rights group has launched a last-ditch initiative to find Nazi war criminals who may still be hiding in South America. 

 The centre’s Last Chance project started in Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia in July 2002 and has turned up 488 suspected Nazi criminals in 20 countries. Among those still believed to be alive and living in Argentina or Chile is 93-year-old Aribert Heim, known as “Doctor Death,” who has a $450,000 bounty on his head.

In addition to seeking a final justice, efforts like this are apparently supposed to relay the message that, if you commit war crimes or other crimes against humanity, you will be sought out and brought to justice no matter how long it takes. You know, so others will think twice before they commit similar acts. Problem is, that strategy only works if people give a shit.

No, I don’t think that is the message these efforts send at all. I think the message is this.  If you commit war crimes and inhuman acts you probably won’t have to worry about being prosecuted at all and if you are, it will be decades before that happens. You’ll probably die of old age first which is exactly what has happened to most of the Nazis.

The industialized or free world  doesn’t really care about bringing these criminals to justice because there is no profit motive and moral justice no longer matters. Thus, any effort to find these criminals will be possible only through private funding and because of that it may take decades to bring them before courts, if at all. 

The very same situation exists with the mass murdering Khmer Rouge who only now, over 30 killing.jpgyears later, are being brought before the courts in Cambodia. Well, 4 or 5 of them are anyway. Why? Because the Cambodians could not raise the few million dollars to make it happen sooner and heaven knows the US or Europe is not going to give it to them.  No return on investment.  Now think Darfur, Liberia, Zimbabwe, Congo. Don’t hold your breath waiting for anything to happen to the slaughterers in those god forsaken places.

So mass murder and rape, genocide, ethnic cleansing….these are pretty safe crimes as far as the potential to escape justice. On the other hand,  if you’re a black kid who hits a white kid, or a black man that looks sideways at a white woman in the American South, that is a totally different story…..

Breaking News: God Hates Fags

November 1, 2007

Before my fingers cooled down from the last church story, this one hits. A federal jury in Baltimore has ordered the Westboro Baptist Church of Topeka, Kansas to pay $10.9 million to the family of an American soldier who died in Iraq. Seems the church was protesting at the funeral of Lance Cpl. Matthew Snyder. Excellent call by the jury.

Church members showed up at Snyder’s funeral chanting derogatory slogans and holding picket signs with messages including “God Hates Fags.”
They’ve picketed the funerals of dozens of troops killed in Iraq and Afghanistan, claiming that God is punishing the United States because of its tolerance for homosexuality.god-hates-fags-kids.jpg

What an ablsolutely un-christian thing to do. These assholes have no concept of what the church is supposed to represent. I thought tolerance for all of God’s children was a basic tenant of the church. And I’m not sure I ever heard, during my christian upbringing, that God hates anybody. I must have been home sick that Sunday.

Seriously, once again the fascist, Bush loving christians (I don’t capitalize that on purpose) expose themselves as the sick, racist hypocrites that they are. They of course don’t have any skeletons in their closets and I’m sure that there is not one gay person, man woman or child,  in any of their families. And just to prove it, they have their kids wear T-shirts to make sure everyone knows it! Think these girls even know what a “fag” is? Think they have a chance in hell of growing up with a healthy christian attitude?  

I don’t speak for anyone else but myself but I would much rather have gay next door neighbors than intolerant pigs like these folks.  

Jena, Louisiana – Racist, Ignorant, Stupid White People

September 20, 2007

Is this the America our troops are fighting and dying for?

noose.jpgBy now you should be familiar with this story. In the racist town of Jena, in the racist state of Louisiana, in the country of America where racism like this is as traditional as apple pie, 6 black teenagers are arrested and charged with crimes-including attempted murder-for a school fight in which one white kid was beaten up, went to the hospital, was treated, released and went out for fun that night.100000948.jpg

Was this one of the white kids who had previously hung three hangman’s nooses from a school tree after black youths had the nerve to sit under it? I don’t know.

Do I wonder why a black kid had to ask a school official for “permission” to sit under that tree? No, its Louisiana. Of course he had to ask. He’s not stupid. And besides, it’s called the “White Tree”.

Was the fight because those white kids who hung the nooses never got charged with anything? Not sure but certainly not surprised. Oh, by the way, one of the black kids just got sentenced to 22 years in prison for it.

kkk.jpgDoes it shock me that 60% of this town voted for David Duke, the former KKK Grand Wizard, for congress? Ha Ha Ha. Nah, no shock there. These are the stupid, racist, ignorant white parents who taught these white teens to be stupid and ignorant and racist, too. Just like them!

This is the best video I found on the story. Not the MSM, that’s for sure. There will be much more on this story but it doesn’t matter. Somethings never change. Like ice cream being cold, Angelina Jolie being hot, and the south still having an abundance of stupid, racist, ignorant white people. If you’re interested in helpin, the petition for the Jena 6 is here.
