Tag "racism"

And now a word from a true Saker hater (Troll “SITREP” of sorts)

The mods have to intercept a lot of plain ugly and sophomoric (or even semi-literate) comments.  The trolls go especially crazy when I post any appeals for support (I guess the thought of somebody actually helping me *really* pisses them off).  So today I decided to share with you one such comment, which is so typical in its mediocrity, that it could be in a dictionary next to “troll”.  Here

Systemic racism or systemic rubbish

By Ilana Mercer, posted with permission of the author The “systemic racism” refrain is a meaningless abstraction. Operationalize the nebulous abstraction that is “systemic racism,” or get out of my face! To concretize a variable, it must be cast in empirical, measurable terms, the opaque “racism” abstraction being one variable (to use statistical nomenclature). Until you have meticulously applied research methodology to statistically operationalize this inchoate thing called “racism”—systemic or

What Happened in Ferguson

Foreword: I am so busy with the events in the Ukraine that I barely had the time to follow the events in Ferguson so I will readily admit that I have no opinion about it.  I do have quite a few opinions about race-relations in the USA, including some rather politically incorrect ones (I don’t consider US Blacks either as either Africans or Americans, for example).  While I lived in

Who benefits from the expulsion of a Greek athlete from the Olympics?

Frankly, this is a dumb story.  But then, considering how politicized everything “Olympic” really is, it makes me wonder whether there is more to this one that meets the eye. Voula Papachristou Pretty simple summary: a Greek athlete called Voula Papachristou posted the following joke on her Twitter account: “So many Africans in Greece at least West Nile mosquitoes will eat homemade food.” I don’t know about you, but I

Brown-nosing Black man

On Friday, October 17th, 2008, right before the 2008 Presidential election, I posted the following video of Malcolm X: and I added the following words: So what do you think? Is Obama a threat to the system (a “field negro”) or the obedient slave of the system (a “house negro”)?  Is Obama a force for “change”? Time has proven, beyond any doubt, that Obama was not only a ‘house negro’,

Listening to Eric Prince – musings about US SOF and the Empire

Jeremy Scahill, the award-winning independent journalist and the author of the international bestseller, “Blackwater: The Rise of the World’s Most Powerful Mercenary Army” has just published an article on his blog at The Nation entitled “Secret Erik Prince Tape Exposed“. Scahill was also interviewed today on Democracy Now. Check out the article and the interview, interesting stuff. Here is, however, the one quote by Prince which is really priceless: “These

Netanyahu’s overt racism

I just saw this quote from Bibi’s latest speech: Any demand to resettle refugees within Israel undermines Israel as a state for the Jewish people He is absolutely right. And denying the right of return of those illegally displaced is, in itself, a form of Jewish racial supremacy, in particular when combined with the equally racist right of “return” for any and all Jews worldwide (nevermind that they never lived

Israel furious over EU discontent with Bibi

Press TV reports: Israel has threatened to block the Middle East peace process over the European Union’s harsh criticism of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. An Israeli Foreign Ministry official said on Thursday that Israel strongly protested at the criticism by EU ministers and senior officials about Israel’s new government, warning that the Netanyahu’s largely right-wing cabinet will forgo the Mideast peace process as long as the hawkish administration is under

Gilad Atzmon – Ahmadinejad: “Read My Lips” plus Full Text of Speech

by Gilad Atzmon for Palestine Think Tank Once again I find myself saluting Iranian President Ahmadinejad, in full support of his words. No one could do better bringing to light European racial discriminatory sentiments. What we saw yesterday at the UN Anti Racism Forum was crude collective institutional Islamophobic racism in its making, a coordinated show of rabid western chauvinism. A bunch of European diplomats behaving as a herd of

Gilad Atzmon – Lexicon of Resistance

by Gilad Atzmon for Palestine Think Tank The following is an attempt to present my own personal dictionary of what seems to be the most charged terminology and concepts attached to the Palestinian solidarity and anti-war discourse. Palestine– a piece of land on the eastern shore of the Mediterranean Sea. For many years Palestine was the home of the Palestinian people: Muslims, Christians and Jews who lived in peace and

Israeli humor: 1 shot 2 kills

Check out this amazing photo representing a T-shirt popular among Israeli snipers: It shows a veiled pregnant woman (presumably Palestinian) through a rifle scope. Under it, a short sentence: “1 SHOT 2 KILLS” (read all about it in Ha’aretz) Can anyone even imagine the worldwide outrage if, say, Iranian snipers had been seen with such T-shirts with the Muslim woman replaced by a pregnant Jewish Haredi woman? If one picture

Listen to the Zionist crazies who are running the USA

(Many thanks to Anna for pointing me to this video. VS) I mean, really, listen to these lunatics, ain’t they just *unbelievable*? Kudos to Max Blumenthal for the gutsy idea of interviewing them when they are “at their best’! Also – make sure check out Max Blumenthal’s article on Alternet.

More on “the only democracy in the Middle East”

by ‘Lenin’ for Lenin’s Tomb The news is that Israel has banned Arab parties from standing in the upcoming elections: Parliament spokesman Giora Pordes said the election committee voted overwhelmingly in favor of the motion, accusing the country’s Arab parties of incitement, supporting terrorist groups and refusing to recognize Israel’s right to exist. This can’t be a complete surprise since a) there are many Israeli politicians who would like the

Hassan Nasrallah calls the Israelis “stupid and dumb”

Al-Manar reports: “Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah called on Tuesday Lebanese to take part in the massive Ashoura march scheduled on Wednesday to renew commitment to the Resistance choice and hostility to the Zionist entity as well as the “Greatest Satan” which gives the orders. His eminence slammed the decision to launch a war on the Gaza Strip as foolish, thanking God “for making our enemies so stupid and

Predictably, Pakistani papers blame Mumbai attacks on Mossad “false flag” operation

This was to be expected: Pakistani websites are blaming Mossad for the Mumbai attacks. Russians have a small aphorism which makes fun of pathological Jew-haters which see “the Jews” as always responsible for everything: If there is no water in the faucet – then the Jews must have drunk itIf there is water in the faucet – then the Jews must have peed in it (it rhymes in Russian) Seriously,

1000 Palestinian kids in Israeli jails

Press TV reports: Nearly one thousand Palestinian children are imprisoned by the Israeli regime, a spokesman of Palestinian prisoners’ affairs ministry says.The spokesman said Israeli forces have detained at least eight thousands of Palestinian children since the start of the second Palestinian intifada (uprising) in 2000. About one thousand of them are still in Israeli detention facilities, he added. Marking World Children’s Day, hundreds of Palestinians children on Thursday rallied

It will be is easier to live among people who rejected McCain

So Obama won, predictably I think. The McCain/Palin ticket was truly the perfect embodiment of everything the world hates about the USA. But that is not the important thing here. What is far more significant is that the McCain/Palin ticket also embodied what so many Americans hate about their own country and that is why Obama won such an overwhelming victory. The readers of this blog must know by now
