26 January 2018. Brother Ajamu on FB and Censorship

________________________

If FaceBook’s move to kick TeleSUR English offline doesn’t outrage you, then, you deserve the fascist state that some wish to impose on the people of this country. While Trump’s theatrics diverted you, liberals collaborated with the state and corporate sector in an ideological war to make sure people believe that there’s NO Alternative to the capitalist order. All the powerful states are now engaged in censorship because of their fear of democracy and the people. Moreover, they should be because we’re coming for them.

Has it ever occurred to you that Trump’s antics are DELIBERATE? Did you ever think that they’re a smokescreen behind which neoliberals can rob this country of its remaining freedom? The Clintons made a good start of dismantling democracy in the 90s… Hillary wanted to complete the job. Now, it’s clear that Trump has the exact same agenda… all power and money to the already-rich… no power to the people… the Establishment speaks and all others must listen. Note well that the “liberal” proponents of Hillary were all “peace n’ love” sorts back in the day. It tells you much about their character, doesn’t it? “Conservatives” such as Rod Dreher are merely crude and grasping… one can see their evil. The “liberal” cover their greed and grasping with a smarmy and “nice” exterior… that makes them twice as evil. As Ted Rall put it so well, Trump gives us clarity. His crudity and open mendacity make his agenda obvious. Note well that Hillary is a more-polished item… her evil wouldn’t be as glaring… but it’d be twice as rancid and dangerous. Keep focused… the times aren’t good.

24 March 2017. What the American Dream Really Is…

____________________________________

America isn’t something you can buy in a store. Yes… it’s something just a little bit more…

You don’t have to believe in rightwing lunacy to be a patriot. Indeed, I’d argue that rightwing Yahooism is the antipode of true patriotism. Do think on that…

6 April 2015. The Bible is NOT the Law of the Land… THANK GOD!

00 this is the law of the land. 06.04.15

******

The House I Live In… Paul Robeson… it says it all… the Republicans hated him and what he stood for. They persecuted him and made it impossible for him to earn a decent living. Those who hated Paul Robeson and what he stood for LOVE the Indiana Law… fancy that…

______________________________

Despite the loud bloviations of some on the right, the Founders did NOT intend to establish a Christian Republic. Rather, they wanted a SECULAR Republic, with no ties to an established religion. That is, the Constitution, NOT THE BIBLE is the “Law of the Land”. You may like that or you may not, but that’s what is. The United States of America was not, is not, and shall never be a “Christian Republic”… those who advocate such want to ram potty Radical American Sectarian (“Evangelical”) notions down everyone’s throat. THAT’S EVIL. Church and State are separate in the USA, and that’s the way it should be. As a member of a minority religion (there are only about a million practising Orthodox Christians tied to parishes in this country, all told), I tend to get worried whenever a Sectarian starts babbling about “morality”… often, that’s only a thinly veiled attempt to force Sectarian fancies on everyone.

The Indiana law was an abomination in legal terms… the state is not in the business of “defending religion”… that’s OUR TASK, as people, not as citizens. If we’re living our faith… whether it be Christian, Sectarian, Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, Secularist, or whatever… there’d be no need for such laws. It’s a sad commentary not only upon us as a society, but as believers. Only unbelievers need such laws. Ponder that, if you will…
