Ted Cruz Uncritically Supports Israel… Israel Did This… If You Vote Republican YOU Support This Too

00 palestine. kid injured by isreali cops. 22.05.15

______________________________

On Thursday, witnesses said that Israeli occupation forces critically injured a Palestinian child after shooting him with a rubber-coated steel bullet near the Shufat refugee camp. Yahiya Sami al-Amudi, 10, was walking near a checkpoint by the East Jerusalem refugee camp when Israeli soldiers shot him. First responders took him to the Hadassa Hospital in Ein Karem with a fractured skull, jaw, and left ear, and surgeons had to remove his left eye. Doctors say that he’s in critical condition. Thaer Fasfous, a spokesman for Fatah in the camp, condemned the targeting of children with tear gas, stun grenades, and rubber-coated bullets. Israeli police media contact Micky Rosenfeld said that there were “disturbances” in the Shufat area after locals threw stones at municipality workers. He added that Israeli occupation police used “non-lethal” weapons, “slightly injuring” a 10-year-old boy, who responders took to hospital.

I am anti-Zionist to the bone… I am anti-anti-Semitic to the bone. This is NOT contradictory. I will stand for no racial hatred. That’s why I oppose anti-Semitism… that’s why I oppose Zionism… that’s why I oppose the US Republican Party with its support of Southern white bigots… that’s why I oppose Galician Uniate integral nationalism with its cries of “Knife the Moskals (Russians)!” and “The Ukraine for Ukrainians Only!” It’s all the same to me. They’re all haters and they’re all evil. FULL STOP.

5 May 2015. Racism is Racism… There is No “Unique” Form of It, I’m Afraid

00 Vitaly Podvitsky. American Democracy. 2015

_______________________________

There’s no such thing as a unique form of racism. That is, there’s no form of racism that’s worse than another one is. They’re all equally vile… they’re all equally corrosive to the society and people that shelter it. For instance, the USA hasn’t dealt with its refusal to recognise that racism against non-whites is endemic. Likewise, the Galician Uniates have a deep-seated hatred of Russians that they refuse to admit. Both are similar to the Central European antisemitism that gave birth to Nazism. It doesn’t matter what the object of hatred is (Roma, Jews, blacks, Mexicans, American Indians, Russian Orthodox, Armenians)… the hatred directed at a particular class is identical to the hatred one sees in other situations. That is, the American hatred of blacks is analogous to Galician Uniate hatred of Russians, just as Central European hatred of Jews and Turkish hatred of Armenians is the same thing.

There’s no “UNIQUE” racism… as much as this-or-that group may think so, there isn’t. It’s all of-a-piece, sadly enough. That is, George Zimmerman gunning down Trayvon Martin was no different from a Galician Azov Battalion tough raping a woman in Mariupol. I’d say that the racist motivation behind both were not only same… it’s the only form that racism can take. Love is creative… hate is not. That’s why racism is so distressingly similar in its banality and horror. That’s why I won’t vote Republican ever again. The Republican Party smiles at American racism and it smiles at Galician Uniate racism. Don’t forget Pastor Niemöller’s poem… if you don’t stand up for others, there won’t be anyone to stand up for YOU. Think on that…

Mississippi Tops List of 21 US States Where Low-Income Students Prevail

01 Evangelical Jesus

______________________________

A report released by the Southern Education Foundation (SEF) revealed that Mississippi is the leading American state in the number of poverty-stricken children attending public schools. The SEF said in its January 2015 research bulletin, “Thirteen of the 21 states with a majority of low-income students in 2013 were located in the South, and six of the other 8 states were in the West. Mississippi led the nation with the highest rate, 71 percent, almost three out of every four public school children in Mississippi, were low-income. … For the first time in recent history, the majority of schoolchildren attending public schools in the USA come from low-income families. … The latest data collected from the states by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), evidence that 51 percent of the students across the nation’s public schools were low income in 2013″. The research was based on children’s eligibility for free or reduced-price lunches in American public schools. According to the authors of the study, poverty rates among American schoolchildren increased since 1989. In 2013, the official poverty rate in the USA was 14.5 percent, according to the US Census Bureau. Over 45 million people in the United States were living at or below the poverty line for the third consecutive year in 2013.

Does it surprise you that rightwing Republican racists misrule the state of Mississippi? In the American South, racists label segregationist academies “Christian Schools”… they receive all sorts of aid from state sources. They also purvey the worst sort of Know Nothing rubbish… like Young Earth Creationism. These sectarian madrassas instil a mixture of Love It or Leave It xenophobia, radical sectarianism (they’re NOT Christian in the least), and junk “science”… Ted Cruz went to such a “school”… it shows, doesn’t it?

Russian Orthodox people… the konvertsy pal about with sectarian trash… shitbirds of a feather do flock together. This is proof, even for the slow learners, that the konvertsy aren’t of us nor really with us… God willing, they’ll leave soon enough… the Alaska abuse case shows us what they’re made of, sadly enough.

George Zimmerman, Acquitted of Murdering Trayvon Martin, Arrested for Aggravated Assault

00 Politics. Zimmerman again. 02.01.14

______________________________

Florida police arrested George Zimmerman, acquitted in the murder of unarmed black teen Trayvon Martin, on an aggravated assault charge. Zimmerman had multiple encounters with the law in the last eighteen months since his acquittal. The Seminole County Sheriff’s Office said that they arrested 31-year-old Zimmerman in Lake Mary FL on Friday night; now, he’s at a local gaol. His scheduled court appearance is at 09.00 EST on Saturday. No further details were forthcoming on the arrest.

Friday’s arrest isn’t the first run-in Zimmerman had with the law since his acquittal. In November 2013, Zimmerman faced charges of aggravated assault with a weapon, domestic violence battery, and criminal mischief following a domestic dispute with his girlfriend. Two months earlier, cops detained Zimmerman after his estranged wife called police, claiming that he’d threatened her and her father with a gun and punched her father in the face. In both cases, the alleged victims declined to press charges.

In 2005, Zimmerman’s ex-fiancée also filed a restraining order against him, alleging domestic violence, prompting him to file a reciprocal restraining order. The judge who presided over Zimmerman’s initial bond hearing called the 2005 incident “run of the mill”. In September 2014, Orlando FL Channel TV news reported that police said Zimmerman threatened to kill a driver during a road rage incident in Lake Mary, and he later showed up at the man’s workplace. The man claimed Zimmerman, who was carrying a gun, asked, “Do you know who I am?” before threatening, “I’ll fucking kill you”. The unidentified driver also opted not to press charges.

On 13 July 2013, a jury acquitted Zimmerman on charges of second-degree murder and manslaughter after shooting Martin, an unarmed 17-year-old black teenager, dead in the streets of Sanford FL. Zimmerman, who was in a physical scuffle with Martin at the time of the shooting, claimed he acted in self-defence. The prosecution argued that Zimmerman racially profiled the unarmed teen and instigated the fight that led to the shooting. The incident sparked a national debate on race and self-defence laws, which led to the current “Black Lives Matter” protests across the USA.

If Zimmerman had trouble with the law before the Martin Incident, why was he in the Neighbourhood Watch programme, and why did the Police Department involved wink at his carrying a gun (such things tend to get known rather quickly on the street)? Would Zimmerman have avoided serious slam time for these violent incidents if he’d been a black man? Perspirin’ minds wanna know…
