"Commies and Faggots"


-
Planet Earth 1988
-


-
As genocide after genocide continues to be pushed under the rug Russia continues to forcibly align its former states with Moscow. The Ukraine president today stated that the mass starvation of Ukraine peoples could not be considered genocide. After all, Stalin was just trying to build character.
-
This comes after the defeat of a Kremlin gremlin fighting president was narrowly defeated in what many consider to be rigged elections. It appears that the long arm of Putin has reached back into the eastern block. Once again the "iron curtain" is falling and nobody cares.
-
2008, Georgia (the country, not the state, for all you Hoosiers out there) was invaded for backing a separatist in the Abkhazia region. When the Red Army came marching in the media was ushered out. For the remainder of the summer, beginning on August 5Th, the Soviets slaughtered anybody and everybody they could find.
-
As for the UN and the rest of the world, the fight in bloody August was supposedly provoked by the Georgians. This was the same explanation that Stalin gave for forced starvation back when he killed 3 million Ukrainians in one year. In all the great Red god of Russia killed an estimated 10 million Soviet citizens that year.
-
So why do we consider everything Russia has done as "unfortunate circumstances"?
-
Well it is simple, much like the Rwandan major Pierre-Claver K... Russian leaders claim to "have saved millions". All the while, much like Pierre, they tend to have been the ones killing the innocent bystanders of their tyranny.
-
On August 12Th Russian President Medvedev (Putin's puppet) supposedly ordered the halt of all Russian Forces. This was supposed to keep the Red Army from continuing its attacks deep into uncontested Georgian territory. Yet missile attacks and even soldier intrusions continued deep into Georgian cities. The killing of all who opposed Moscow went on for nearly two weeks. It wasn't till October when the Russian reds finally withdrew back into South Ossetia and Abkhazia. Both are claimed to be independent nations and yet they only exist due to having been break away territories of Georgia (break away territories that are friends with the Kremlin).
-
To date the Russians still use their power (or threat of it) to force its eastern block nations into compliance. The Ukraine elections were rigged without a doubt. These elections have led to the continued use of Ukrainian Black Sea ports by Russia so as to continue their blockades of Georgian ports. This purely demonstrates how Putin continues the Stalinist approach to communist rule.
-
It is clear and concise to all reasonable minded individuals that the Soviet forced famines were tools of genocide (or politicide). Stalin took all forms of food away from the peoples of the Eastern Block. He and his select elites perfected the techniques used by Hitler and the Nazis. And these are the same techniques used in Darfur.
-
Therefore we must recognize the slaughters of innocent people as Genocide whenever and wherever they fit the bill. We cannot turn a blind eye to this case simply because we wish to forget our differences with the Reds (communist). Their way of perpetrating genocide has been utilized from Columbia to Cambodia. And it is about time the United States gets over the Cold War and wakes up.
-
Never again... our hollow phrase.

Death Threats...


-
... over headscarves.
-

-
The battle over burkas has reached a new high (or low, depending on which side you are on) in France. Under the flimsy leadership of Nicolas Sarkozy the French are looking at a fascist style law that would ban a select piece of clothing due to religion and bigotry.
-
Of the 60 some odd million French people only about five million claim to be Islamic. Of these only about 2,000 Muslim women wear any form of scarves on their heads or to cover their hair. Of these only an estimated 200 wear the Muslim headscarves (burkas) under question by the Sarkozy administration.
-
Yet here we have a "free" people ready to turn on a select minority with the intent of striping these women of a religious sacrament. For what reason? Well the French have two to be exact... national security and women's rights.
-
Yeah, national security is the first reason given by the French. 200 women, who they claim are oppressed by Islam, are going to overthrow the French government. Obviously they are hiding weapons of mass destruction under those burkas.
-
But on a serious note, the liberals in France (who would normally be opposed to national security) are being lassoed in by the proposed "women's rights" issue of the Islamic headscarves question. So with this on the ticket, the libs in France are ready to sign off on the bill that would make it legal for police in France to jail or fine women for voluntarily wearing a religious symbol (of modesty none the less).
-
Now let us look at this from the other side for a moment.
-
Say out of the 60 some odd million French only about five million where Christians. Therefore the remaining will be Muslims for the purpose of our little observation here. And thusly now lets issue a similar bill, only this time we are going to make it illegal to wear a cross on your clothing or as jewelry.
-
Hard to imagine right? But that is exactly the same issue we have here. This bill has nothing to do with security or the liberation of Muslim women within France. It has everything to do with the fact that the liberal Europeans have allowed immigration of foreign peoples and foreign ideals for decades. And now they have a growing community that they are suddenly (and unfortunately for them on an philosophical standpoint)uncomfortable with.
-
So with this said, if the French are going to call themselves a democracy then they are going to have to get use to foreign ideals. For this is how a democracy matures and grows. Had it not been for the United States establishing the democratic republic that we now live under than France would not have gotten the fascist tainted democracy they now live under. So clearly the acceptance of foreign ideals into any government has the potential to spark change.
-
However it is unclear how the allowing of a religious sacrament is going to overthrow a government. On the other hand it is clear how the banning of a religion in part or in whole can change a government for the worse (i.e. Nazism).
-
So before you jump on the wagon and think that it is fair to ban a headscarf (for whatever reason) just ask yourself this... where does this line of reasoning stop?
-
P.S. The reason the war over burkas has reached a new high in France was due to the death threats now streaming in from all sides. Not only Muslims are upset over this clear violation of civil liberties. And as for Belgium... they are currently without a government, so their bill will be delayed till the government can decide on what language they are going to speak to one another with.

Socialist or Fascist?

-
Battle of Burkas
-


-
It is obvious that we Americans have just a few things in common with the Belgians. We both call ourselves democracies. We believe in civil liberties to an extent. And we both are capitalist to a point. But is it possible that our government could pass the same sort of fascist laws as Belgium?
-
I would like to hope not. But when you have the French, Danes, and even the English looking at this Brussels style "Burka law" with mouths watering you might wonder. I mean this is a country that fell to Nazism with record speed and now they are moving back to the same hard line socialist style.
-
You might be wondering by now what law I am referring to. This would be the law that vaguely references the Islamic headscarves some generically refer to as "burkas". The content of the law would make it illegal to wear such garments in public. Thusly banning a voluntary practice of a well established religion (under punishment of jail time or heavy fines).
-
Now rewind the time period a hundred years or so and pass the same law under the same context. We aren't tossing Turkish or Moroccan Muslims into prison but instead are jailing entire monasteries. That's right... Catholics wear similar headscarves voluntarily now don't they? At least their nuns do and their priest wear those funny hats. And don't forget Jews... they wear funny hats too.
-
But seriously speaking... I would be willing to fight for the right of any Muslim who willing wore a traditional garment. And despite the ideals and fantasies of the western world, most Muslim women in our sector of the world wear these garments willingly. The headscarves and the more conservative clothing worn with them are a display of modesty when the Muslim woman wears them.
-
Sure, I have heard every ideal put forward on the topic. The Islamic tradition of "forcing" women to conceal their hair or face is oppressive is a popular one. The "fact" that "most or all" women who wear them are forced to do so by their husbands is another one. But after having met several dozens of Muslim women, even having befriended several, I have never met one that has worn the traditional headscarves forcibly.
-
In fact, a very close friend of mine once told me that her ex-husband had tried to convince her several times to wear the headscarves. She said that he had quoted scripture and said that she should wear it out of respect for him. But in the end, she never once has put on a burka, niqab, hijab, al-amira, shayla, khimar, and especially not a chador. All of which are worn by differing Islamic cultures around the world.
-
Now on the other hand, her mother wore the al-amira each and every day. Her sister wore one only when she felt like it. And several other women I worked with at this store wore al-amira scarves daily. But when asked politely, most said they wore their headscarves for the same reason I wore my cross around my neck.
-
Hence where I come to my next point. If a government can ban a symbol of religious tradition why not ban another offensive symbol... crosses? Or maybe the governments of Europe can propose bans on rosary beads and dots of ash on the forehead following Lent? No, now that would be taking hard line Nazism style socialism just a bit to far. I mean after all, Europeans don't like Nazism... just agnosticism.
-
So I will move on to my next point.
-
Is it possible under the current administration that we too could be looking at a ban on religion or religious practices?
-
It is hard to imagine that any administration would take our system of government any further toward European socialism. But at the same time we now will suffer under "Obamacare". We are looking at another expansion of government into Wall Street. And the current administration would like to gay up the military a little more too (more than Clinton did).
-
So yes it is very possible that our government could find it, in much the same manner as the Belgians, a security threat to allow the "burka". After all this could also be a way to further our cultural experience by eliminating all barriers between our cultures.
-
Green MP Stefaan van Hecke- "If you want good communication between all communities, and there are a lot in Brussels, it's important that we see each other when we speak to each other. I think it's very important to social contact."
-
But we will have to overlook the idea that we are forcing a select group of people conform to an idea of fashion we traditionally condone. And in doing so we will strip them of a religious symbol they have traditionally condoned. Fair enough right?
-
After all, they aren't asking you to turn in your cross necklaces or to give up your stars of David... if you happen to be of that minority. So why worry right? Its just a group of people you don't really care about anyhow right? Belgium

"Born as Ghost"


-
The Future... Up in Flames.
-

-
Oh father why have you forsaken me? Oh mother why have you turned away thy face? Born into a war with which I hath no fight. Born as ghost in to this cold callous night.
-
Islam in the world today has two far stretched extremes. At one end you have a group that would rather see the world set ablaze. At the other end you have the populous the select few crush beneath their heel. It is not in the interest of this blog or its writer to belittle or attack Islam, but to make a call for an end to its application of violence to its message.
-
In Gaza mothers strap bombs to their children and parade the fruits of their efforts without regard for the future. Blinded by the fires of smoldering bombs these foolish few have come to represent the masses. With narrowed vision they look to the future and see only flames and pillars of smoke. Yet is Islam not the "religion of peace".
-
In Moscow the KGB... FSB (Russia's new secret service) identified the decapitated head of one of the "Black Widow" bombers. Only 17, the young lady found the modern day meaning of "peace" in Islam. Her Messiah's message severed her head as her body was turned to worm's meat.
-
It leaves one to wonder where this all ends. When do the bombs stop? When does Islam come to realize that the "barbarians" are here to stay?
-
On each side of this ever growing war we have the possibility of genocide. So much so that some already claim it has begun or has been going on for some time now. The "innocent" in Gaza claim they are the victims of genocide even in spite of the fact that they harbor Hammas and other genocidal militants. But however you look at it, both sides are preparing the killing fields of tomorrow.
-

-
Preaching to the youth of our nations the propaganda war often breeds prepares them for death and dieing in much the same manner Hitler used his programs. However we should not lie to our children either, like Stalin. Islam is being used to subjugate entire populations. However it is not in the teachings of Islam to use "jihad" to spread its message.
-
Often I have had the privilege of speaking to intelligent people who despite their intellect openly speak of the death of Muslims with some joy in upon their lips. Given that these same people would never speak of the same thing if one were to substitute Jews, Christians, or even Hindus in the place of the Islamic subjects the underlying problem becomes clear. We suffer from a siege mentality.
-
With bombs erupting all around the world like the beating of drums upon the battlefield a desire to fight wells up within us. As good natured people all we want to do is protect the innocent. Fathers wish to grab up their weapons and take to the hunt for those guilty. Mothers want to wrap their arms around the young wide eyed youth now forever scarred by the far reaching effects of this war.
-
"It will be a war not fought upon the fields of some distant land, it will be fought here..." in your homes, your hearts, your minds.
-
Agencies all around the world deal with children after war has left them destitute and on the verge of death. Many for the first time in their lives know what death is and some even at young ages wish to have been taken up in its numbers. Having seen their families and friends slaughtered (like those children of Rwanda, Cambodia, Bosnia) they fight the war over and over in their minds. So much so that when UN workers had children of Rwanda paint pictures they would often paint men with machetes.
-
The children of Islam paint pictures of men with funny belts.
-
For the 17 year old bride of a terrorist (the first "Black Widow" of Moscow) the funny belt ignited her world ablaze. One survivor of her attack said her eyes looked as though she was drugged... like she wanted nothing more than to leave that subway tunnel. And yet in a few moments after seeing here standing in the subway, she blew herself to tiny pieces... only a severed head to remain.
-
So what can we do to help? Nay, to stop this endless flow of blood?
-
The darkest hour comes before the light. With the fight against Islam that hour has yet to come. Seemingly not enough Muslim mothers have buried their young yet. Not enough Muslim Fathers have seen their lineage burnt to Hell.
-
On our side of the fence, we have had our 9/11. Now we need to teach our children that we are not at war with Islam. We are at war with those who would use their children to fight where they themselves would not venture. We are war with those who would deny the freedoms they themselves enjoy to their own children let alone all those they intend to victimize. We are at war with the one percent that rest like a rotten apple at the bottom of the barrel.
-
War is a horrible thing, better it be so that we might not become too fond of it.

The Bear's Paw


-
Fighting Back... Tunnel Rats.
-


-
"Scrape them off the bottom of the sewer."
-
With the modern day Satan on their tracks, the rebels of the Caucus are bound to be facing Hell for their recent attacks on "Mother Russia". And once again we will no doubt see the phrases "militant" and "Islamic" side by side. Yet this battle between the bear and the "religion of peace" has been long standing.
-
"They should be poisoned like Rats."
-
On one hand it is hard to defend the people who destroy the lives of innocent bystanders yet JFK said it best with; "Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable." At no point was violent revolt made impossible or preventable in this instance. Moscow has attempted, without resistance from its allies in the west, to enslave the Caucus region for its oil (something we love far to much). Yet the execution of innocents is unforgivable, just ask Allah.
-
"The war will come to your street... and you will feel it on your own skins."
-
On the other hand it is hard to deny the right of a people to fight back against tyranny. And that is exactly what the government in Moscow has been willing to spread across its former republics. It is obvious in Chechnya and other neighboring states that nobody gets into leadership without the Kremlin's backing. Independence is a state of mind in this region, not a state of being.
-
"A vote is like a rifle; its usefulness depends upon the character of the user." -President Theodore Roosevelt
-
Deliver onto the populous of a nation the right to choose its own destiny and you have true and unrestrained freedom. Relinquish the reigns of tyranny and a nation can experience true liberty. However the Russian government has not yet allowed its own peoples to vote freely and honestly so it is a far stretch of the imagination to think Putin would allow Chechnya to do any different.
-
"A people free to choose will always choose peace." - President Ronald Reagan
-
It is of my opinion that even in Iran you will find Muslims that want nothing more than peace. You will find fathers who want nothing more than the best for their children, fathers that work every day to provide for their families. Even in Iran you will find mothers who want nothing more than to see their sons and daughters grow in a world without the threat of death or the clergy's calls for deaths in the name of Allah.
-
The same can be said for those who are seeking "change" in Chechnya. If they had been born to a nation starved of grain and oil they would not be in their current predicament. However, the peoples of Chechnya do have oil and fertile land so they will continue to be milked by the money hungry Bear to the north. From her lair in Moscow the beast will without remorse continue to exercise it current punitive policies toward the tiny Chechen government. Its peoples will have to continue to suffer as the radicals these policies cultivate continue to fight back in the seemingly only plausible manner... violence begets violence.
-
"The main lesson that ordinary Russians should draw from this tragedy is that the authorities and the people exist separately from each other,"- a Moskovsky Komsomolets journalist.
"If you are not prepared to die like cattle, be ready to defend yourself. Rely only on yourself. In this way, you will be able to save your own life and the life of your country."
-
So as far as Putin goes, Hell has a special place for those who prey on the weak and voiceless. And for the forseable future, the Islamic radicals in Chechnya will continue to be a thorn in the Bear's paw.
-
"They are animals. I have no doubt that we will find and destroy them all." -President Dmitry Medvedev
