Racism in the Netherlands/Party for Freedom/PVV, Wilders and the poison of racism (tags)
The extreme right wing and Islamophobic Party for Freedom [PVV] of G. Wilders is a great danger, not only because of its discriminatory, racist, repressive and hate speech agenda, but also because of its embracing of causes like anti EU and battle against Dutch austerity measures, thus reaching people, who are not perse racist, and the cooperation with European right wing parties as the racist and antisemitic Front National.
The Zell[ing] Out of the Baltimore Sun (tags)
Sam Zell, a multibillionaire and “committed Zionist,” will soon gain control of the LA Times, the Chicago Tribune, the Baltimore Sun, and 23 TV stations. Zell, an AIPAC supporter, has promised he won’t interfere with the news sections of any of the media outlets. I think he’s another Mortimer B. Zuckerman of the NY Daily News, who pushed for the Iraqi War. America--prepare for a “Dark Age!”
Merry Shi'ites rejoice in front of reporters hotel - but what comes next? (tags)
The images of the statue being pulled down will probably become one of the iconic images of this war. Those destroying the statue were Shi'ites who had been kept in poverty and oppressed by Saddam. The protest took place, not coincidentally, right accross the street from the hotel where all the journalists were shacked up. Now we know that the extreme right wing in America has no love for the poor. How much did the CIA pay for that protest, and will it be enough for those impoverished Shi'ites to retire on (Uncle Sam, after all, doesn't do the charity thing)
Terrorist strikes begin in response to attack on Iraq (tags)
Two small bombings on British interests overseas have taken place, and are a harbinger of things to come. Dangerous times are ahead, but in no place on the planet is it going to be more dangerous than in America, as a looming scandal drives the extreme right wing to ever more reckless actions...
Who is going to crush the Kurds? (tags)
After just listening to the Bush speech on Monday evening, and his appeal to Iraqi Republican Guard units to give up without a fight, I am led to ask the question, 'Who is going to crush the Kurds of Iraq' after Saddam is gone from the scene, and the answer would appear to be the Republican Guard, if they should be turned by the Americans.
Fear of a spiral into Depression as job losses mount (tags)
Dismal sales at Christmas time were propped up by deflationary price cuts, and now the retail sector is among the hardest hit as one third of a million jobs are slashed in February. Not coincidentally, the same rise of the Extreme Right Wing is taking place as was seen during the depression of the 30s, with the same drive to seek relief in aggressive wars of conquest...
Sheep being sent to the slaughterhouse (tags)
Why is it the case that when you look back over history you find that time and time again the Right becomes more and more powerful, and the left become the sheep being sent to the slaughterhouse?
The Campaign to Impeach George W. Bush (tags)
For there is always both seed time and harvest, a time to plant and then a time to sow, a time such as this, when the berries are ripening on the bush, and the grapes of wrath hang heavily on the vines.
