A millennium of Christian White Terrorism has given birth to counter terrorism from the IRA, African National Movements, the PLO, African National Congress, Al Qaeda and ISIS

Britain through their 400 years of British Atrocities and the United States with its slavery and attempted genocide of Amerindians and other European Imperialists who invaded and illegally occupied peoples from S. America, Central America, North America, Asia, Australia, India, China, have in the age of Christianity killed more innocent people around the Globe that ISIS, Al Qaeda, the Palestinian Liberation Front, Mao Tse Dong’s Communist China, The USSR, the Algerian Revolutionaries, The Irish Republican Army will ever do…the balance sheet is fact…the murderous Christians easily out kill even the most vile and disgusting excess of ISIS and ISIS is totally deplorable, but as John 8:32 says Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” It is time every Christian from Moscow to Mexico City, from Santiago to Vladivostok, from Fairbanks Alaska, to Sydney Australia, from Wellington, N,Z, to Accra Ghana From Berlin to Rome to Paris, to Madrid, to Vienna, to Warsaw, to London, fucking England that Christian Terrorism has over the last millenia killed more people than any other people in the history of mankind..

I studied the oppression and brutality of Western Imperialism under Professor James Jordan at York University, I studied The Politics Of Military Dictatorships from Latin America to African with Professor Liisa North at York University, I have studied Political Philosophy of 18th, 19th and 20th Century; I studied the disgraceful Opium War in which the Christian Anglican England used brute military force under General Gordon to ram opium a harmful drug down the throats of innocent Chinese…how Christian is that?

Oh yes, I remember now LOL hahaha Christ in his last dying breath on Mt. Golgotha saying unto the Christians ” And may all you fine followers of me invade China and do me a big big favour before I die on this pleasant Good Friday afternoon —GO TO CHINA AND RAM OPIUM DOWN THEIR THROATS.

I remember how a Queen Victoria was so disgusted by the treatment of her Indian subjects and the abuse of India my the British Military that on several occassions she threatened to resign along with her entire royal family as Queen of England. But Victoria is too conflicted she did not resign and the weight of history doubts her sincerity…also note Queen Victoria is a Lady McBeth for ever tainted by the colonial excess of her British Mauraders and Invaders and exploiters of lands far away from Buckinghan Palace.

BBC – Radio 4 Empire – Queen Victoria and Abdul Karim
www.bbc.co.uk/radi…/history/empire/episodes/episode_66.shtml
May 15, 2006 – Did You Know… Such was Victoria’s feelings about India – a place she never visited – that there were moments when she exhibited pangs of alienation among her own British subjects. When a courtier confronted the Queen with evidence of Abdul Karim’s doubtful doings, she is said to have angrily …

Of course the British cut their teeth conquering and exploiting her neighbours primarily Ireland and the Irish did what any self righteous people do when they are mistreated they fight furiously for justice from oppression and thus Irish terrorists emerged and paved the way with the blood of their English Overlords to Create Ireland.

Ireland vs. the British Oppressors provides the model of  how Christian colonial terrorism generates and gives birth to liberation movements for all the oppressed people of the world. Of course what is a liberation movement in the oppressed nation is always distorted by the oppressor into the pejorative linguistic juggling act which returns the negatively tinged “Terrorism” with which the Oppressor can bamboozle their own people and world opinion against legitimate liberation movements.

IRA_900

The Irish Republican Army was created in the dialectics of colonial Christian Terrorism giving birth to Liberation movements like the IRA, PLO, Iranian Revolutionary Guards Al Qaeda and ISIS. In other words the terror of the Christian Colonial Oppressors generates the terror of those who want Liberation from Oppression. Photo Courtesy of Youtube.com

Facts are facts. Consider, the Irish did not colonized Britain, The African Nations did not invade England, India Did Not Invade England and impose a tyranny there; Afghanistan did not invade American, Iran has not invaded Britain or the US; North Korea has not invade the US but the US and the misnamed United Nations troops did invade Korea; Algeria never invaded France, but France did invade and occupy Algeria. Do you get my lesson.

You may have heard one of the 3 thermodyamics of physics — every force has an equal and opposite reaction — Christian Terrorism every where it has gone, assisted by its hand maiden priests and nuns sows the seeds if reactive and justifiably counter terroristic movement by oppressed people who want what the oppressing nations have — freedom from being invaded and oppressed. Ironic eh?

The tyranny of Colonizers will be fought strenuously as the Irish Republic Army said to cruel Christian Oppressor Britain. All others, because it is human nature to want justice and freedom from oppression, have followed the Irish Model of how to battle disgusting invaders like the Britain, France and, Spain.

In fact, 19th Century South American liberator Simon Bolivar assisted by Italian Giuseppe Garibaldi may have served as role models for the 20th Century Irish Republican Army who in turn inspired a host of 20th and 21st century liberation movements.

These groups that some call terroristic were created in response to Christian terrorism opposed by justice seekers who want to overcome the tyranny of foreign oppressors and death merchants has set up a crazy dialectic of terror perpetuated by Christian terrorists and opposed by Hindus, Muslims, Incas, Aztecs, the African Peoples, the Aborigines and Maori in Australia, the Chinese, the Mayans, the Amerindians, the Black Slaves in American, the Canadian First People, including First Nations and inuit.

The Aggressors have always been the heavily armed Christians who aimed the total force of their military might to conquer, subjugate or exterminate innocent peoples around the world in the rush to colonize that lasted from about 1850 to 1950 when decolonization began but didn’t end until 1990 and in some places it continues still. Culminated in the holocaust by Germany and the dropping of two atomic bombs on Japan.

Today the Christian overkill continues in the long wars in Afghanistan, Iraq and now Syria.

The truth will set you free…open your eyes and minds. The facts are there for you to see. Get your calculators and notebooks and do the math of Christian Terrorism and its death toll over the last 1,000 years.

And I have, of course read up, on various trains of thoughts emanating from theses strands of study.

I am not just whistling Dixie, naked by the statues of Hitler, Stalin, Andrew Jackson and Robert E. Lee.

Also consider the number of annual murder by Christian Americans by guns of other Christian and non-Christian Americans by NRA sponsored terrorism 34,000 per year over 10 years 340,000 Christian murders, over 30 years 1,300,000 Christian murders.

I would love to research the Age of Christian Terrorism more thoroughly for a Master and PHD , because the rhetoric of self-righteous Christian Truth deniers is staggering in how they are condemn defensive and reactionary terrorism Mark my word ISIS and Al Qaeda are every bit as murderous as Colonial and Post Colonial Christian Terrorists and the recent overkill of the reactionary Al Qaeda and ISIS terrorists have provide the umbrella that Christian nations headed by the US Britain, Fance to continue the millenial excess of previous Christian murderous excess in:
1. The Crusades which the Christians and the disgraceful popes and kings of Christian Countries started
2. The fraticidal pope vs. pope wars between France and Rome — Avignon Pope vs. Roman Pope
3. The fraticidal Christian vs. Christian religios wars in the 14, 15, 16 , 17, 18, 19 and 20th Century culminating in the aggressive fight for colonies in the late 19th Century, World War 1 and World War 2.

The question to be answered who started the mess we see being played out in Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria…the question is its the Christian nations. who after leaving the middle east and the Indian subcontinent set up murderous regimes to defend their economic interests like Saddam Hussein in Iraq, the Assad family in Syria,  the Mubarak/ Al Sisi Dictatorship in Egypt and the Rezha Pavlahi Shahship in Iran until it was as in the Irish oppression-liberation cycle by the Iranian Revolutionary Guards in 1979.

The Quiet American is a 1955 novel by English author Graham Greene which depicts French colonialism in Vietnam being uprooted by the Americans during the 1950s. The novel implicitly questions the foundations of growing American involvement in Vietnam in the 1950s and is unique in its exploration of the subject topic.

In Deer Dance, System of a Down explore the dynamics of oppression…”Pushing little children with their fully automatic they like to push the weak around.” That prophetic line from System of Down simply captures the dynamics of oppression…the little children will grow up to be the IRA, the PLO, ISIS and Al Qaeda

The quicker Christian nations accept this murderous dialectical sword dance as the truth, the sooner we can start to heal and build towards reconciliation

Donald Trump Can’t Handle the Truth : Political Humour by Frank Giorno

A message to Boss Trump from Jack Nicholson – You Can’t Handle The Truth!

Trump you, and your bone spurred heels, just  Can’t Handle the Truth!

Can't handle the truth

Donald “Big Boss Man” Trump Can’t Handle the Truth…so he lies and lies and lies…so much so that he has set many of his pants on fire. Photo courtesy of Pinterest.

So you lie and lie and lie and lie and lie and lie. You lie so much you are starting to resemble a rug! Bad-a -boom.

You are such a liar that you have set numerous of your pants on fire! Badda bing!

You have had to order a supply of fresh, fire proof, Trump pants from Trump clothing manufacturers in Bangla Desh and China. Yep! Trump is lying when he tells you he will force American companies to manufacture in the US and create jobs.

Maybe for others, but not for Boss Trump. Gee Willy, just do as Boss Trump says and don’t worry about the the lying he does. OK? Don’t worry be happy!

Trump wild-eyed, crazy

Trump! Drain thyself.

Hey Big Boss Trump! Liar Liar your nose is longer than a telephone wire. Ba ba ba boom!

Let’s hear the truth about Big Bad, Mad Dog, Donald “The Lying Twit” Trump. Here is a classic by the Castaways that sums it up nicely.

And while Big Boss Trump is being such a wooly bully, attacking war hero John McCain, nice guy President Barack Obama,  and straight talking Florida Congresswoman, Frederica Wilson ; weasely Republican senate majority leader Mitch McConnell; befuddled Attorney General Jeff Sessions; cool as a cumber Republican Senator Bob Corker and many, many, many more. A virtual cast of thousands bullied by President Wooly Bully Boss Trump.

Please add the names of others bullied, by the Wooly-Bully-in-Chief , Trump the Grump right here.

In fact, Big Boss Trump is such a bully, that being his best friend won’t prevent him from bullying you or even firing you, right Mooch? Right Dr. Evil Steve Bannon? Right Paul Manafort, Mr. Russia! Right, Roger Stone-face, international man of mischief! Right Corey Lewandowski! Right, Sean Spicer! Right, right, right, right,

Might as well get the scoop about bullying from….are you kidding me? First Lady Melania Trump is making anti-bullying her life’s calling. Poor gal obviously has gotten first hand, eh? But, give me a friggin break here.

Forget Melania, let’s go with the classic bully song from Sam the Sham and the Pharoahs — Wooly Bully!

Uno, dos, tres, quatro! Holy Shit! Mexicans and Muslim extremists all rolled into one, Mr. Trump, oh no!

Murder by 2nd Amendment: America’s largest mass murders made possible by NRA by Frank Giorno

Such great sorrow in America…deepest sympathy to all those who died and their families in this unbearably senseless and preventable tragedy.

This photo from Rolling Stone Magazine’s coverage of the Las Vegas second amendment murders depicts the terror concert goers experienced during the largest massacre of Americans by a mass murderer. Photo courtesy of Rolling Stone Magazine

These 58 deaths in Las Vegas should be known as murder by 2nd amendment. For it was the shooters 2nd amendment rights that permitted the right to purchase an arsenal of weapons to slay 58 Americans. Imagine of those 58 deaths occurred at the US embassy over sees, what the reaction would be?

Think about the majority Republican Congress and the strident comments they would be making about stopping terrorism, restricting immigration, building a way, curtailing people’s civil liberties by torturing those responsible and tapping phones and spying on social media.

Sadly, the cowards in the Republican party will act sad and decry the crime, but the will stand by the National Rifle Associations distorted and incorrect view of what the second amendment says about who may own guns.

The 58 murders in Las Vegas and the shootings every where in the United States really are brought to you by the NRA and their 40 year record of helping people like Steve Paddock, the Las Vegas shooter, obtain an arsenal of deadly weapons by fraudulently asserting everyone’s right to guns of all sorts including rapid fire machine guns and military assault rifles.

Thanks to the NRA instead of a well regulated system of gun purchases, you have total gun anarchy.

And this is despite recent polling showing that Americans overwhelmingly want some form of control on guns to end gun anarchy that NRA has promoted and bullied lawmakers into achieving.

Majority of Americans Support Gun Control: Time Magazine

Donald Trump supports NRA absolute right to guns. It is no coincidence that since this  deadly and divisive President assumed centre stage there have been at least four or more deadly shootings since June 2016.

In fact, since Trump took over the presidency in January, 2017 there have been 273 mass shootings already in 275 days according to the Gun Violence Archives.

Gun Violence Archives Mass Shootings in America

The NRA and its executive leadership should be viewed as accessories to mass murder, by literally handing those guns to murderers like Paddock who bought his weapons legally.

The NRA has since the mid-1970s been forcing US lawmakers, through what amounts to bribery, in the form as major cash donations to candidates running for office to support their extremist view of the 2nd amendment.

This is democracy? The majority want gun control, but money bribes by the NRA bullies politicians into denying the majority what they want — gun control, not gun anarchy!

Las Vegas native and late night host Jimmy Kimmel put it this way:   Since the 58 dead and 500 wounded were murdered by a rich American gun owner as opposed to a non-American,  Trump, McConnell and Paul Ryan – the Republican party, will do nothing “because The NRA has a money belt clipped around their balls.”

Remember 2nd Amendment says “…for the purposes of a well regulated militia the rights to bear arms shall not be infringed.”

Second Amendment to the US Constitution

I guess current American conservative gun advocates do not speak English very well, because their interpretation of the 2nd amend is predicated on the erroneous view, that the first clause in the amendment is irrelevant, and has no bearing on the second clause — “the right to bear arms shall not be infringed.”

Conservative legal scholars have argued that the for purposes of maintaining a well regulated militia was a meaningless and hollow preamble, and should be disregarded.

Now an example of a preamble that does not relate to the second part of the 2nd amendment would be something like ” Wasn’t that a great ball game last night,  the right to bear arms shall not be infringed.”

In my understanding of the English language there is much weight and relevancy to the fact that the founding fathers wanted a well regulated militia, and for that purpose, for the purpose of a well-regulated militia, the right to bear arms shall not be infringed.

Why? Because the USA of 1784 did not have the military might of Britain, France, Spain, Germany and it necessarily depended on well armed citizens to come to the aid of their country if invaded.

The founding fathers certainly did not want guns to go into the wrong hands, that is why it was a well-regulated militia.

Not complicated at all, if you understand the English language.

In other words you can buy arms to participate in a well regulated militia. And you can screen those who purchase arms for purpose other than maintaining a well regulated militia.

After all, there were many people in the newly founded USA of 1784 that the founding fathers did not want to own guns like British spies, possibly slaves who wanted to rebel, Native Americans who wanted their lands back, and others who posed a serious risk to the foundation of  the young US.

I doubt Steve Paddock bought  the arsenal of weapons , without background check, without restriction, so he could serve in a well regulated militia.

Police in Las Vegas said, Steve Paddock, the shooter who mowed down 58 innocent Americans, lawfully purchased a varied of weapons at gun stores. Thank you NRA for making this mass shooting possible. Photo Courtesy of Slate.com

Yet even the Supreme Court of the United States have become so politicized over the 2nd Amendment that conservative judges voted to refuse to hear gun control challenges after the Sandy Hook mass murder of school children and teachers by a mental disturbed young man who loved to go shooting at a gun club.

Nice guys, eh? 26 people killed at Sandy Hook, many young children and SCOTUS doesn’t give a whistle about their lives snuffed out as such a young age.

Suffer the little children, SCOTUS would rather you die to protect the NRA myth of absolute gun rights for all. Gun Anarchy! Or Gun Control.

Please send an email, a letter – Hell if you are close enough tie a note to a rock and throw it through the NRA’s window, and tell them how you feel about The NRA allowing gun anarchy in the USA.

58 dead in Las Vegas; 49 dead in the Orlando night club shooting;26 Dead in Sandy Hook; 9 dead in a church in South Carolina;  20 Dead in Aurora movie theatre shooting etc etc etc.

Last year was the 50th anniversary of the 18 people killed by Charles Whitman at University of Texas from a clock tower in 1966. Since then 1,000 people or more are killed by guns each year in the US.

Since 1966, approximately 50,000 Americans, and that is a conservative number it’s probably way higher.

50th anniversary of first modern mass murder by gun in August, 1966

Thanks to the NRA, once an organization of hunters and responsible gun owners up to the mid-197os, when it was hijacked by extremists, the Americans have suffered unbearable sorrow at the hands of legally sanctioned gun anarchy.

NRA, this mass murder in Vegas is for you, for all you do to guarantee, people like Steve Paddock, can buy the most vicious weapons unchecked. Way to go guys! Thanks to the NRA gun anarchy reins supreme.

Mass murder thanks to the NRA, and its ass kissing conservative lawmakers have made mass killings, and indeed all gun murders an American Ritual….where everybody loves to Shoot Shoot.

And Trump wants to ban Muslims? And Trump wants to build a wall against Mexicans.

Please!

Walt Kelly’s perceptive comment voiced in the Pogo cartoon strip. Courtesy of Pinterest

In the words of Pogo the cartoon character “I have seen the enemy and the enemy is us.”

Well not “us” but the NRA and Donald Trump and that ilk of fear mongering bigots and distorters of the intent of the 2nd Amendment.

Sometimes I wonder, if some Americans actually speak the English language…but that is another story for another blog.

The ridiculousness of the SCOTUS  leaving out the first clause of the 2nd amendment calling for a well regulated militia, is not only poor English but it is maniacally insane and poor legal interpretation.

End Gun Anarchy with thoughtful and necessary Gun Control.

Simple as that.

Speech is never free. It comes with a cost by Frank Giorno

Let’s get one fact straight about “Free Speech” – speech, like action is never absolutely free.

Every utterance; every action comes with consequences.

That’s why it is best to think before you speak. Think before you act. Your words can hurt others, and so can your action. It is like throwing a pebble into a lake or pond. Words and actions cause ripples.

The noble eight fold path, developed 500 years before Christ, enshrined the concept of responsible thought, speech and action. Thought gives rise to speech. Speech gives rise to action. They in turn produce consequences, or in the words of the Buddha – karma.

Right thought, speech and action  may generate good and positive results for the individual, his or her  community, his or her neighbours.

Bad or wrong thought, speech and action brings dire consequences for the individual who influenced by faulty thought impulses, speaks recklessly, and harmfully caused or inspired violence, hatred of others. It could lead to condemnation, arrest and incarceration , a life time of ridicule.

For hate- filled proponents of Free Speech in the U.S., Canada, Europe and else where , who go around chanting anti-black and anti Semitic provocation they must accept the cost of their irresponsible thought, speech and actions.

3670405542

In Charlotesville, Virginia the cost of hateful free speech was the murder of a young woman of outstanding character and understanding, Heather Heyer, who worked to improve lives in America.

She was murdered by a troubled young man who made a very bad choice — he chose hate over love and compassion.

There is no such thing as Free Speech…it comes with a cost.

images

Heather Heyer was murdered by an American neo-Nazi terrorist who slammed his car into her body killing her and injuring 18 people who were speaking out against neo-Nazis , white supremacists and the KKK. But as Heather’s mother said at Heather’s funeral eulogy, “they didn’t silence her, they magnified her” and her values of love and decency.

 

 

 

American free speech has been paid with the blood of its citizens, soldiers, who died fighting to defeat Nazism a philosophy that silenced tens of millions of people.17_0820_USfightingNazis_WW2_A

To see American, neo-Nazis demanding free speech  and exercising “free speech” in order to organization, and build up their power to oppress decent Americans is totally unsupportable. American neo-Nazis demand to express their speech to gain power to silence people they do not like.

People like Donald Trump, he is no president and I will not call him such — aid and abet white supremacists and neo-Nazis. His own personal history shows he has been an out right racist as in the 1970s, when he was prosecuted for discriminating against blacks in his apartments buildings.

Trump, the man who murdered truth, and decency ignited his hate-filled drive to become the accidental president, by perpetrating one of the greatest hoaxes in US political history.

He fanned the flames of bigotry by insisting Barack Obama was not a legitimate president, because he falsely claimed Obama was born in Kenya.

Even after Obama showed his Hawaiian birth certificate racist Trump continued to spread false news right up to the month before the November 2016 election about Obama.

The audacity of Trump to cry that the media is trying to de-legitimize his accidental victory over Clinton — the bastard made his career attempting to de-legitimize Obama.

Talk  about karma, eh? Trump, what goes round comes round.

While Trump fans the growth of American neo-Nazis and white supremacists he is taking a giant stand against American history.  America is passionately anti-Nazi. America has fought against white supremacy in the civil war, in the civil rights movement. America took a strong stand against Nazism by fighting to defeat it in WW2.

Trump embraces neo-Nazis (despite his insincere condemnation of them on Monday only to go back and defend them at the disgraceful news conference on Tuesday.)

Neo-Nazi’s are in fact traitors to the US, and all the gallant, Americans, British, Canadians, Australian, Russian, French; and all the French, Jewish, Polish, Italian resistance who fought  — Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini and other Nazis and fascist.

Nazism and fascism oppressed speech that did not conform to its hateful philosophy and policies.

Nazism and white supremacists are anti-Americans, the are an enemy to mankind.

Every hate-filled thought, speech and action by American neo-Nazis’ and White Supremacists’desecrates the graves of all Americans who died fighting Nazism; the graves of Union soldiers who defeated the Confederacy and brought an end to slavery in the U.S.

The deaths of US soldiers fighting against Nazism and fascism and slavery is proof that speech is never free.

17_0820_USfightingNazis_WW2_main_900

Nazi officers surrender to American Troops. Why should Americans follow neo-Nazis like Richard Spencer, when US soldiers spent four years fighting Nazis?

The United States lost 415,000 troops during world war 2. Britain lost another 370,000 lives combating Hitler and Mussolini.

The United States fought Nazis in WW2.

During the civil war 620,000 lives were lost on both the Union and the Confederate sides. The pro-slavery south lost the civil war and surrendered in April 1865 at Appomattox, Virginia.  Slavery was ended. But that was not the end of the fight for civil rights as white supremacists, KKK’ers, and others enacted Jim Crow laws, instituted racism and discrimination as part of their government. Lynchings and other terrorist tactics were unleashed to spread fear among the black American. In some parts of the United States, the north as well as the south it was as if the Civil war never happened.

general-ulysses-grant-accepting-the-surrender-of-general-lee-at-appomattox-severino-baraldi

Robert E. Lee signs surrender marking the end of the Confederacy and slavery.

Civil rights leaders and activists like Martin Luther King, James Meredith murdered by racist terrorists. Innocent children, college students who supported the fight for equality were blown up by terrorist white supremacist bombs.

Speech must be responsible and it must lead to the greater good of our neighbourhood, community, cities and towns. Our country.

Let’s look at the sister right of freedom association. You can choose to associate with others, but that right is not absolute either. You cannot associate with others for example to conspire to commit crimes.

Similarly, the United States, Canada, Britain, France and especially Germany have enacted laws to prevent hate crimes ,

Thinking hate, speaking hate, acting out hate is the lifestyle of neo-Nazis, white supremacists and KKK activists and their supporters.

Their values harm social harmony and the public peace.

Free speech comes with a high cost.

Therefore it is right and just to counter these latter day Nazi traitors at every turn until they see the folly of their ways.

But make no mistake about it — people like Richard Spencer and David Duke are using poor, unhappy, alienated white children and teens to propagate their vile plans for an all white state.

They are using free speech to recruit and organize. Armed “militias” with great firepower are preparing for a new American civil war.

It’s up to all of us to work together and reach out to these alienated youth, who feel marginalzed and show them the right path, the right way to succeed in life.

It starts with teaching out through schools, social agencies, sports organizations, popular culture and showing their is hope in America.

Government policy can help by providing free college and university education, financial support to impoverished families of all races who need a hand up.

It is not enough to merely oppose neo-Nazis, it is important to deal with the root causes of lower class, poor whites. Well educated neo-Nazis like Richard Spencer and KKK’ers like David Duke are using these children and teens, poisoning their minds for their own purposes.

As with extremism of all kinds including ISIS it is poverty and ignorance that provides the fertile soil to grow generations of hate.

Let’s think right, speak right and act right by extending a hand to all the poor people of the world and unite them with hope.

Above consider which side are you on?

As this song by Pete Seeger asks. Which Side are You On.

I know which side I am on. Equality for all. Love trumps Hate.

 

Kathy Griffin is right ! And spare us the selective outrage — Trump has done worse, but as a man he gets a pass! by Frank Giorno

I defend Kathy Griffin and her right to express how she feels about the harmful policies of Donald Trump through her use of political theatre. Political theatre is a legitimate form of expression.

17_0603_Kathy Griffin News Conference

Kathy Griffin is exercising her freedom of speech in holding a prop that resembles Trump’s head smeared with ketchup…it is tame compared to Hollywood standards.

Kathy Griffin is well within her first amendment rights of free speech to show her disgust at this vile man masquerading as President of the United States by engaging in political theatre.

As a Canadian and a neighbour of the United States, I respect the office of the President. FDR now there was a President! Dwight D. Eisenhower, what a leader!

I am afraid though, that after Trump there won’t be much of an office left to respect. This man is a wrecking ball.

And speaking of theatre, for Christ sake the American movie industry is repleted with grosser props than the ketchup drenched fake head held up by Griffin…only those indignities we call blockbuster movie hits.

Griffin is only doing what Trump has been doing. He uses sensational words and phrases, while Griffin uses no words and a prop to get her message out.

I guess a fat, ugly, white man with $4 billion can joke at  an NRA convention in 2016 in the midst of a presidential election about using their guns to kill a female presidential candidate – Hillary Clinton,  but a woman cannot joke about Trump, a man –  by holding a grotesque -Halloween, fake, severed head prop.

Candidate Trump can make disparaging remarks about Megyn Kelly’s saying quite proudly that the former FOX News anchor was bleeding from her whatever…and people still elected hi president, well it was on 300 something members of the electoral collage , but thank God! more than 3 million voters voted against the six time bankrupted businessman, alleged serial groper and according to Harry Hurt III a wife beater.

Donald Trump’s Bloody Imagery Hurled at Megyn Kelly

In my books , 3 million Americans is a lot larger number than 300 electors. Some democracy, where a blade of grass in Iowa, has more voting clout than a human being in California.

Despite the “loss-win” Trump continues to act  like King Donald I – absolute monarch of America…didn’t you guys have a revolution in 1776 to overthrow your last absolute monarch — King George the III?

Folks, it is not Donald Trump’s head Griffin is holding…it is a prop. Like the props used in many grotesque Hollywood movies and television shows. Such grotesqueness has not led to producers or directors getting fired. Rather they have gotten quite rich and famous because of their gore. Take Sam Peckinpah please!

So why the outrage?

Something is wrong with America, that can consume hours and hours of murder porn, like Criminal Minds as entertainment, but acts outraged at Griffin’s prank.

“Bring Me The Head of Alfredo Garcia”…the name of a Sam Peckinpah 1970s movie starring Warren Oates and a severed head prop. No outrage there.

Actually, Peckinpah’s ultra violent movies are considered high art. Of course, Griffin is no Peckinpah…she is after all a woman, and though Peckinpah’s disgusting movie and prop are hailed, Griffin and her prop are reviled. I guess Quentin Tarantino, another man, has followed in Peckinpah’s footsteps and carried on the good old ultra violence.

Alfredo Garcia

Sam Peckinpah’s movie about a severed head is hailed as cinematic art…all of Peckinpah’s bloodied films are. Poor Kathy Griffin’s bloodied head prop is reviled as much as Peckinpah’s is hailed. Go figure

Consider how many innocent men, women children  were killed by Trump-approved tomahawk missiles strike in Syria, the stepped up military action near Mosul and the mother of all bomb strike in Afghanistan, where was the American outrage?

Those blown up bloodied heads and bodies were real. Kathy Griffin’s stage prop was a piece of rubber covered with ketchup.

So much outrage over a prop that was not real.

Kathy Griffin, a woman with a bloody prop gets fired. But Donald Trump gets lauded as acting Presidential.

Kathy Griffin, take an extended road trip. You will be a big hit in Paris, Brussels, Amsterdam, Rome and Berlin, where they see Trump murdering NATO and killing the planet by withdrawing from the Paris Accord.

You go girl! You will get standing ovations.

The bloodied Trump prop-head is political theatre as much as Trump’s Syrian air strike or his outrageous comments during he election campaign,

Why not fire Trump for his really bloodied hands, and his comments about NRA members using their guns on Hillary Clinton? Or Megyn Kelly’s bloodied “whatever?”

And you hypocritical Americans…yez you Al Franken, and you Chelsea Clinton, and you Anderson Cooper — just go back to watching your Criminal Minds and your other murder porn favourites, like Dexter and Hannibal Licter and Freddy Krueger.

Bloodiest TV Shows

Hell, you don’t have to watch fiction just turn on your nightly news outlets and you see real life blood oozing out of an about to die American or other death rattles….where is the outrage over those deaths brought to you live in your living room.

Or you can watch Spike TV or the Discovery Channel’s 1,000 Ways to Die.

1,000 Ways to Die

 

This outrage over Kathy Griffin hoisting a Trump prop head…It’s a selective and calculated outrage over Kathy Griffin. It’s a sorry, cold blooded ploy to deflect from Trump’s selling out America to the Russians.

Like the calculated approval to strike  a Syrian airfield another more deadly smoke screen to divert from Trump’s Russia problems.

Trump kills in Syria and Afghanistan and Fareed Zakharia on CNN’s GPS hails Trump as acting Presidential.

Trumps deadly airstrikes in Syria makes him presidential ?

Trump, the man gets away with murder, and disparaging remarks about women, and gets elected president. A woman, like Kathy Griffin, exercises her right to free speech, and political theatre ,and she gets fired.

 

So it goes as Kurt Vonnegut would say.

I guess it is, as James Brown sings… a man’s world.

FDR showed that great personal sacrifice and unselfishness are important characteristics of that a president of the United States must have to lead the nation.

During this time of great tumult, hatred and division, let’s cheer a truly great American President, Franklin Delano Roosevelt.

During the 1930’s,  when the United States faced its great struggle with the Depression, it was blessed with a great President -Franklin Delano Roosevelt.

Roosevelt  was a very wealthy man, But his far-reaching, generous policy and concern for the well being of America’s middle and working class led to the creation of some of the greatest public works projects ever undertaking to create jobs –  e.g. The Tennessee Valley Authority, a hydro-electric project that created jobs and also extended electrification to remote parts of the US.

FDR had great advisers and he listened to them. He sacrificed the narrow interests of the plutocracy of which the Roosevelt family stood. Theodore Roosevelt, a president in the early years of the 20th century was a cousin, to really benefit and improve the lives of the less financially well off.

FDR was the first president to use the First 100 days as a measure for how well he was helping the Nation. And he did plenty. His policies to help Americans cope with the Great Depression is known as The New Deal

FDR’s   National Industrial Recovery Act (NIRA), Works Public Administration (WPA) and National Relief Administration (NRA), the National Labour Relations Board (NLRB), the Social Security Act,  and a number of other progressive measures  helped millions and millions of Americans survive the Great Depression.

FDR embodied the spirit of sacrifice and unity. For those who planned to profit from the people’s misery, FDR had this to say:

“The forces of ‘organized money’ are unanimous in their hate for me—and I welcome their hatred.”

He went on: “I should like to have it said of my first Administration that in it the forces of selfishness and of lust for power met their match, [and] I should like to have it said of my second Administration that in it these forces have met their master.”

In his second term a much more aggressive fight against the people who were profiting from the Depression-era troubles of ordinary.

FDR at the mikes

Franklin Delano Roosevelt was a great leader, a great US president who despite personal suffering helped improve the lives of hundreds of millions of Americans

It is not hard to see why FDR won an unprecedented 4 terms as US president. A feat that will never again be accomplished because of term limits imposed by Congress after FDR’s death. Presidents may now only serve 2 terms.

His measures have been attacked by the neanderthal Conservative Democrats and Republicans have been railing against for over 80 years.

You see, to be a great President or champion of the working class you don’t have to be from the working class.

You just have to stand by your personal principles of unselfish caring for your neighbours and taking measures to help them, instead of fooling them to vote for you and then abandoning them only to enrich your own pockets.

In fact some of the greatest enemies of the working class and middle class have themselves come out of the middle and working class..e.g. Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini to name two.

Hitler was a loser who failed at everything he tried.

Mussolini was a bombastic idiot, who instead of following policies steeped in reality to help the Italian nation, he was obsessed with childhood fantasies of rebuilding the Roman Empire.

Let’s Cheer the Great Franklin Roosevelt ! And remember a truly great American President.

A man who showed that disabilities, he was wheel chair bound due to polio, need not be a hindrance to being great.

Also lets recognize that it was under FDR, the first seedlings of the civil rights movement were planted with such historical events as Marion Anderson’s Lincoln Memorial Concert, the first time a black performer sang on the Washington Mall.

That generation produced some great music. Here is Woody Guthrie’s This Land Is Your Land sung by Peter Seeger and Bruce Springsteen in 2010.

Perhaps current political leaders should listen to the hopes and dreams of this inclusively themed song, instead of spewing hatred, bigotry and division.

They’re coming to take the President away…haha…heehee…to the funny farm

Donald J. Trump is a paranoid, who hallucinates nonsense and then tweets his delusions to the world.

The birther nonsense in which he falsely accused former President Obama of being born in Kenya, when in fact the records clearly show Obama was born in Hawaii, which last time I checked was a state in the United States of America.

Donald 1

A clearly unhinged President Donald J. Trump tells the world via a post midnight sleep deprived tweet that Obama bugged his phones. He is mad I tell you…completely kookoo.  

More recently, Trump claimed that 3 million illegal aliens voted against him and that is why he didn’t win the popular vote.

He clearly was angered that his claims to the greatest electoral victory in US history actually ranked 46 out of 54 elections.

He deluded himself into thinking that the crowd at his inaugural was “yuge”, the largest ever and lashed out at the media when they showed that Obama’s first inaugural was actually “yuger” as was the Women’s protest the following Saturday.

Now he has gone completely beyond the pale into absolutely, weird territory and perpetrated the greatest outrage by a sitting President against his predecessor.

Trump announced earlier this week in one of his frequent sleep deprived, midnight tweets that President Obama wiretapped his phones at the Trump Tower.

Trump had absolutely no evidence but the rantings of Breitbart and other wingnuts of the alt.right movement. More importantly the Hallucinator in Chief clearly had no idea how difficult it is to obtain a court ordered wire tap. I guess he shoulda attended his intelligence briefings prior to being sworn in.

Wrecking Ball Trump

I came in like a wrecking ball All I wanted was to build more walls

This latest hallucination clearly shows that man is a danger to himself and the nation. So why not fill out a community committal order at the local D.C. Mental Health Hospital.

“Mr. President, I regret to inform you that they are coming to take you away – those nice young men in their nice white coats. With the butterfly nets. They are at the door sir.”

“They are coming to take you away sir. They have the white straight jackets ready.”

“Should I inform Melania and the kids?”
