How the Tea Bagger Racism Kills Americans

Those old enough to remember the Vietnam War may remember one of the most divisive and bitterest incidents during the war – the visit by Jane Fonda to North Vietnam while American Troops and North Vietnamese troops were actively engaged in trying to kill each other. Go to any VFW in America, and you will find a bunch of folks who view Jane Fonda with the sort of derision usually reserved for foreign enemies like Hitler or Tojo.

Strongly opposed to the Vietnam War, “Hanoi Jane’s” picture sitting on an anti-aircraft gun utilized to shoot down American Pilots gave me a lot of heartburn. There is a Grand Canyon size distance between opposing the actions of your government, and supporting the folks shooting at your friends, brothers, fathers, and fellow Americans.

Which brings us to the situation today. If Hanoi Jane was a traitor – then so too are the small legion of Tea Baggers currently putting our troops in the Middle East at risk so that they can promote ethnic racism. The Peter Kings, Alan Wests, Herman Cains, Michelle Bachmans et al are traitors too. In the case of Bachman, King, and West – they are even lower level scum because they are elected officials of the US Government, and as such are briefed on what happens to American personnel when crap like their Muslim baiting hits the press.

My position is that these scumbags should be impeached and convicted by their peers – and suffer the legal consequences.

I’m not sure if any Americans were killed in this one – but this is the logical conclusion of the sort of ethnic and religious racism and extremism promote by the Tea Baggers.

How many of our soldiers have died because of these treasonous, racist scum?

UN staff killed during protest in northern Afghanistan

Protesters outside the Blue Mosque in Mazar-e Sharif, Afghanistan (1 April 2011)At least eight foreign UN workers and four others have been killed in an attack on a UN compound in the Afghan city of Mazar-e Sharif, officials say.

The violence happened during a protest over the burning of the Koran in a US church last month.

Witnesses said hundreds of people were protesting peacefully in the city when the scene suddenly turned violent.

A local police spokesman told the BBC the city was now under control and a number of people had been arrested.

The UN has confirmed its workers were killed but has not said how many – it said the situation remained “confusing”.

“We are currently working to ascertain all the facts and take care of all our staff,” said spokesman Dan McNorton.

UN officials quoted by Reuters warned that the death toll could rise and added that those killed included foreign and local staff, UN guards and Nepalese Gurkha soldiers hired to protect the compound.

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon described it as “an outrageous and cowardly attack”.

US President Barack Obama also condemned the attack “in the strongest possible terms”, saying the work of the UN “is essential to building a stronger Afghanistan”.

F*** condemning the attack, President Obama. What you need to be doing is offering the choice of a rope or a bullet to the right wing American scum whoring our people’s lives for political points.

Dude, You Have No Koran!

American perspicacity and strong motivation for doing what is right wins again!

Would The Real Americans Please Stand Up!

Is it just me, or some other folks out there getting tired of the ignoramuses and bigots stealing all of the oxygen out of the public discourse?

Real Americans, Please Stand Up

By DICK CAVETT

All this talk about the mosque reminds me of two things I heard growing up in Nebraska.

I had a 6th grade teacher who referred to American Indians as “sneaky redskins” and our enemies in the Pacific as “dirty Japs.” This abated somewhat after I asked one day in class, “Mrs. G., do you think our parents would like to know that you teach race prejudice?” She faded three shades.

The rest of that year was difficult.

As a war kid, I also heard an uncle of mine endorse a sentiment attributed to our Admiral “Bull” Halsey: “If I met a pregnant Japanese woman, I’d kick her in the belly.”

These are not proud moments in my heritage. But now, I’m genuinely ashamed of us. How sad this whole mosque business is. It doesn’t take much, it seems, to lift the lid and let our home-grown racism and bigotry overflow. We have collectively taken a pratfall on a moral whoopee cushion.

Surely, few of the opponents of the Islamic cultural center would feel comfortable at the “International Burn a Koran Day” planned by a southern church-supported group (on a newscast, I think I might have even glimpsed a banner reading, “Bring the Whole Family,” but maybe I was hallucinating). This all must have gone over big on Al Jazeera news.

I like to think I’m not easily shocked, but here I am, seeing the emotions of the masses running like a freight train over the right to freedom of religion — never mind the right of eminent domain and private property.

A heyday is being had by a posse of the cheesiest Republican politicos (LazioPalin, quick-change artist John McCain and, of course, the self-anointed St. Joan of 9/11, R. Giuliani). Balanced, of course by plenty of cheesy Democrats. And of course Rush L. dependably pollutes the atmosphere with his particular brand of airborne sludge.

Sad to see Mr. Reid’s venerable knees buckle upon seeing the vilification heaped on Obama, and the resulting polls. (Not to suggest that this alone would cause the sudden 180-degree turn of a man of integrity facing re-election fears.)

I got invigorating jolts from the president’s splendid speech — almost as good as Mayor Bloomberg’s
— but I was dismayed, after the worst had poured out their passionate intensity, to see him shed a few vertebrae the next day and step back. Read the rest of this entry »
