3 June 2018. Money Talks and Bullshit Walks Department… EVERYTHING’S For Sale in America

________________________

You see, if a poor person commits a minor crime, they’re only fit for serious time in the slam. On the other hand, if a rich person commits a major crime, they either get off with a minor wrist-slap (as above) or they only do short time in a cushy soft joint (oh, no… we can’t put GOOD people in Dannemora or Attica!). Yes, everything’s for sale and race has little to do with it and money has everything to do with it. You know the old cynical expression… “Money talks and bullshit walks”. I wish that it weren’t so true…

Blame It on the Ambien

_________________________

Actress, comedian, and former US presidential candidate Roseanne Barr claims the prescription sedative Ambien was the true culprit behind her describing Valerie Jarrett, a former White House senior adviser, as a child of the “Muslim Brotherhood and Planet of the Apes”. While some were debating whether Barr’s tweet was likening Jarrett to apes or speaking from a place of Islamophobia, the former ABC star returned from her hours-long Twitter hiatus to proclaim in a now-deleted tweet that her 0200 “Ambien tweeting” was “indefensible”. Not to be used as a scapegoat, Ambien maker Sanofi’s US branch shot back at Barr without even mentioning her name:

People of all races, religions, and nationalities, work at Sanofi every day to improve the lives of people around the world. While all pharmaceutical treatments have side effects, racism is not a side effect of any Sanofi medication.

Anxiety, depression, nervousness, strange behaviour, thoughts of self-harm, memory loss, hallucinations, and severe confusion are reported side effects… especially in women. Naturally, US President Donald Trump, who received vocal support from Barr during the 2016 presidential election, also joined in on the Roseanne cancellation “party” by calling out Bob Iger, CEO of Disney, which owns ABC:

Bob Iger of ABC called Valerie Jarrett to let her know that “ABC doesn’t tolerate comments like those” made by Roseanne Barr. Gee, he never called President Donald J Trump to apologise for the HORRIBLE statements made and said about me on ABC. Maybe, I just didn’t get the call?

While the ultimate fate of the leading lady’s show is unknown for the cast and crew, it seems certain that the actress is won’t be backing away from the Twitter app anytime soon.

Editor:

I think that ABC came down especially hard on Roseanne as she attracts the “wrong” kind of people… proles. Do bear in mind that Upper Middles look down their long noses at us and treat us with either condescension or contempt. I spit on them and everything that they stand for and hold dear.

Ajamu Baraka: “The Capitalist Class Couldn’t Care Less That Trump’s a White Supremacist”

00 ajamu baraka 030318

Understand this, the capitalist class couldn’t care less that Trump’s a white supremacist, hell, they’re white supremacists, too, just not as crude. They don’t even care about democracy because they know that there’s no democracy in the USA… just political theatre every two and four years. Their anger at Trump was at his opposition to TPP and his threats to disrupt neoliberal order. That’s what Russiagate was all about at first until they saw that they could use the Russia issue to constrict information and political discourse and pre-empt radical opposition, especially amongst the youth. Now, they’re seeing even the idea of running outside of the two-party hustle as being possibly subversive; if you question US warmongering, you’re a “Russian agent”. Very slick.

Now might be an appropriate time to commemorate the memory of MEDGAR EVERS, and remind people that race is a myth and not something real. Racism is a denial of God, a denial that God created ALL of humanity. Racism isn’t only heresy; it’s blasphemy.
