As_DaVinci_would_have_seen_Pain

Yesterday Ron Mapes of Concord, New Hampshire wrote the following letter to the editor of the Concord Monitor:

“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our government’s reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, ‘the buck stops here.’ Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.”– Sen. Barack Obama, March 2006

I think this statement by Obama, failed leader of this nation, pretty much explains to all honest, true red-blooded American patriots who love God and country what exactly is wrong with the United States of America right now. The time for Obama’s impeachment is now; the proof is there many times over. It’s time to get rid of those we elected last time and bring in honest, faithful political leaders who have the guts to get the job done and get it done right the first time.

It’s obvious those we elected last time were bought and paid for, not elected. Wake up and get it right this time.

Mr Mapes selectively quotes then Senator Obama’s speech of 16 March 2006 on the floor of the United States Senate. The full text of that speech is archived here at Snopes.com. The point the letter writer is trying to make is not a simple one, however, We, Ourselves, see the message as very clear. President Obama, to Mr Mapes and millions of other like minded Americans, is not an honest person. To the conservative element bent on having its way despite being a retrograde minority view sees the 44th President of the United States as the antithesis of a “true red blooded American patriot.” The leader of the free world therefore to the far right does not love the G-d that all conservative white Americans worship on this very day. And most definitively this man that was twice elected President does not love the country despite garnering 135 million votes in those two elections and presiding over the most difficult economic recovery in American since the Great Depression.

Mapes says the time for Impeachment of the sitting president is now. We, Ourselves of The Collective and the Meditators feel America, to use a popular colloquialism has bigger fish to fry. We believe that those who believe as this man does are fighting a war long lost on behalf of the memory of those long dead who reaped the benefits of generations of misogyny, bigotry and power concentrated in the hands of a tribally loyal few. The Collective understands that there is huge profit in telling people with closed minds exactly what they want to hear. Rush Limbaugh has made a career of doing just that. We, Ourselves, would ask you, the reader of this post, what has Limbaugh ever offered as a solution to any of the problems that America has today? Better, when his ideology ruled in Washington did he do anything other than to support his side blindly?

The Meditators often ask why people, no matter how tribally motivated do such things? We ask the same question in regard to minority violence in urban centers all across America? But unlike the far right which seeks only to blame others for its ills while offering nothing new as a solution, We Ourselves do strive to put measures forth to stem the suffering of the American middle class. Ron Mapes ideology is not the disease it is a symptom of the inability for a segment of America not to be able to let go of the need to have someone to struggle against vice joining the fight for Progress. Trillions have been wasted on the War on Drugs and the War on Poverty which were doomed without utilizing the proper tools. The solutions to both are legalization and education. To be a member of free society demands both responsibility and sacrifice and to that end ideological conservatives and thugs that want to hurt people and damage property are joined at the hip. Neither see what they are doing to their reputations as a group as harm because they are enjoying their moment in the sun.

Impeachment is not the solution to the problems that Ron Mapes sees that are a cancer in America, because Obama is not the problem. The problem in America now is that the conservative ideologues on Main Street USA have taken the Middle Class hostage piled them onto a train speeding toward a mountain tunnel where the poor are forced to roam and are smiling all the way to the bank with overflowing campaign coffers thanks to Citizens United. If you want more freedom and prosperity in America do not vote for the party that wants to send America back to back alley abortions, racial segregation and criminal prosecutions for LGBT persons; vote for a party that wants all people to be at least middle class and if you falter will be there with a safety net to allow you to reach for the brass ring. Bruce Currie who comments on the letter makes the obvious even more clear:\

This letter illustrates the extent to which some in this country are completely divorced from reality–when it comes to economics, politics, and virtually anything that requires coherent thought. That’s a summary description of those who identify as Tea Party members or their fellow travelers. Ted Cruz and his merry band of pranksters have led the Republican Party to the brink–and are taking the country with it. They’re getting hammered in the polls, and dragging the greater Republican Party down with them. Their recklessness is hurting millions of Americans who depend on the government, and yet we have some here who are cheering them on, and blaming the president and the Democrats for what is entirely the fault of a few extremist Republicans. Have they no appreciation for facts and the truth? Have they no shame?

Does this sound familiar?

This is because Buford Rogers was caught before he could commit acts that would have certainly been deemed terroristic. Had they been committed by anyone with connections to a foreign group, a religion other than Christianity and been non white. From the interview done with Buford Rogers’ parents, We, Ourselves of the Collective clearly have the Federal Bureau of Investigation to thank for keeping this domestic and local grudge from becoming something much more serious and deadly. Many conservative forums and blogs are making light of this arrest. The Meditators find this both amusing and shocking.

Rogers family Montevideo

Consider this scenario; a man is caught in a home with pressure cookers and black powder and nails and ball bearings and a tip leads to the FBI arresting him and his brother days before the Boston Marathon. After the holiday the media report the findings of local, state and Federal law enforcement. The plot to bomb the race and to carry out further attacks in New York City has been thwarted. Now is this person a potential terrorist based on what the police and the FBI suspect he could have done had he completed his bombs? Does it really matter if the person is an adherent to Islam from Dagestan or the product of poor white trash in western Minnesota?

The crime that will likely not stick against Buford Rogers is the possession of a firearm by a felon charge. It is alleged that Rogers had a Romanian AKM rifle and other firearms based upon his fingerprints being on them. Jeff Rogers, the father of Buford, says that his son only cleaned the weapons. What would the NRA say about a legal gun owner allowing a relative who is known felon who legally is barred from possessing a firearm easy access to them? Is this not one of the gaping loopholes in gun ownership regulation in America; the sales between relatives many times done after straw purchases?

Margaret Rogers a woman identified only as being married to Jeff Rogers said there were no pipe bombs in the home but the FBI stated the pipe bombs and Molotov cocktails were found in the shed with other potential weapons. Conservative blogs have already picked up on the words of this woman which echo terribly similarly to those by Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s mother which claim Buford is not a terrorist and that there was nothing found in the home. The reaction of the Rogers family and those that knew Buford Rogers run parallel to the sort of things that were said about the Boston Marathon bombers. Rogers even has a younger brother who can be seen in the picture above wearing camouflage and standing next to a poster which could be used for an anti-illiteracy campaign.

The words of Jeff Rogers are clear and to the point for all to see, “Bucky is not a terrorist. He is not out to bomb anyone. He’s a patriot like we all should be.” The Collective knows and understands exactly who the “we’ Jeff Rogers refers to in this quote. Rogers and his sons were members of a minor group of patriots in Minnesota known as the Black Snake Militia. The BSM has ties to the Southern Brotherhood Milita whose stated goals are [Emphasis Ours}:

“We oppose the United Nations , NATO and the Powers-That-Be, we are against the Federal Secular Humanists that run our Anti-Christian / Anti-God Government. We oppose Abortionists, CFR, the International Bankers ( Banks ) and Corporations. We oppose all meddling beauracratic [sic] entities.

We are anti-conformists and believe people should show absolute respect for the diverse differences in beliefs, ideas and character of others.

Our foremost objective is to establish a Theocracy .

We employ a social tribal order, to maintain our laws and see to the social welfare of our people.

Our purpose is to stand against all evil and utterly destroy the perpetrators of evil.”

And now this becomes, yet again, a matter for the Laal Hethri. The beliefs of many groups like the BSM and the SBM are the beliefs of the rank and file of the TEA Party. When an adherent to Islam commits such acts it is always terrorist when poor white theocrats plot to do similar things it is to conservatives simply a “local dispute” that got out of hand and the FBI has “overreacted.”

“Penn State shouldn’t have been given athletic sanctions by the NCAA for looking the other way during Jerry Sandusky’s repeated rape and abuse of young boys. If America were truly exceptional, the military should have been brought in and the entire county which worshipped at the altar of Joe Paterno would have been razed to the ground by all those leftover bunker busting bombs Bush bought for the Iraq war.”– Governor General Srindra Singh or Gilbesht in a debate about American exceptionalism with Sheol conservative MP Yancey Harrell on “Overdark” with Maarit Outi Pekkonen last night.

17684_10151302678801275_1550939780_n

The idea of American exceptionalism is not a new meme. The thought that the people who now live on this land, once occupied by the Human Beings; taken by violence in the name of profit, are more prosperous, more intelligent, cut from a more moral cloth and closer to the favor of their chosen Creator than any other has been clearly a concept of Faith for those who now call themselves “Conservatives” for the better part of the last one hundred twenty five Terran standard years. We, Ourselves, of the Collective and The Meditators have a problem with any such notion based simply on the statement expressed in the stripes of the flag above. One must begin to ask the questions of common men, the hoi polloi, and the oligarchs who now own your government and rule your media, “Who profits from this disaster?” and “What will be the spark that causes someone to give up their comfort in a revolution from which they may not reap a similar status to those they are fighting against?”

These are serious matters, not to be taken lightly as they were at Blogs4Victory just this past week. The conservatives there simply wanted to throw red meat at downtrodden aging white men who see their fathers have lost their birthright of unchecked bigotry in the last few decades and left them nothing more than the onanism of “being white is better than being black or brown” along with their Bibles to cling to in these desperate times. And, yes, We, Ourselves admit these are desperate times– for Conservatives. Not only is their ideology, their worldview dying, they are dying. For the moment there are a few million ardent young whites out there who shout just as loudly as the over 50 crowd about the “many ills of President Obama” but let Us be honest with Ourselves, these young men and women in their twenties aren’t in this politics game to bring back the Reagan years, roll back women’s reproductive rights or to solve America’s debt issues. They are seeking a pool of like minded people who given enough familiarity will allow them to get laid; something they wouldn’t do in a similar setting surrounded by more attractive more intelligent Progressives.

the good old days

So who does profit from all of America’s ills? There are many who do profit some of these groups will shock you others are well known. All must give up something or the Union will be lost to time and to history.

The-Rich-Get-Richer-Income-Inequality

Income inequality is clearly profited from by those who really run the country the oligarchs. Not just corporate CEOs but hedge fund managers, the boards of large law firms who write the laws and then pimp them to Congress and of course the religious oligarchs who are desperately trying to remain relevant in an age where technology is nearing its ability to make deities out of Men. And in the end this is nothing more than a clearly visceral reaction to the short duration of the human lifespan manifest in the form of greed for all things material.

Poverty-In-America-704926

Poverty has been used as a tool to keep the masses at bay since Time Immemorial. Poverty is profited from by the Church, the oligarchs and their corporate media. Poverty as an extension of bigotry feeds the furnace that drives the powerful to remain powerful. They do not care that a child is one day celebrating the reelection of America’s first Man of Color to the highest elected office and the next day a victim of gun violence. They do not care that children go hungry in the wealthiest nation on Terra as long as they are safe behind their gates and in their dens of luxury. Poverty is a prison sentence handed down by generations of greed and fear in the name of tribal purity.

An examination of these two ills shows how all the others are interconnected. It is time to drain their trough or America will be the soil where the seeds of failure of an entire species will be sown.

As you likely have noticed, the Dis Brimstone Daily Pitchfork has taken a well deserved break from terrestrial matters over the past few weeks. This respite will continue for a brief period as we shift from American political and social matters, which I as Editor-in-Chief feel are decided at least for the near term, to focus on the larger and more pressing matters that affect all of Terra’s population. The new and more global vision of Hell’s leading daily newspaper will debut on the day many feel the Mayans predicted your planet would cease to exist, 21 December 2012.

Until then our writers will post opinion pieces from time to time about the subjects of their choice. I begin this soft period of transition with a return to American social and political matters. I read this morning at Blogs for Victory a post by Mark Edward Noonan that made me think very deeply about the future of American politics. Mr Noonan, who is keen to make predictions without taking all the myriad forces at play, stares into his conservative crystal ball yet again. This time he looks toward his latter years and even predicts the age of his death, 77 in 2041, and the cause, liberalism:

I’ll have died at the age of 77 of an easily treatable disease which I could not get care for because the National Health Service didn’t have sufficient resources to treat me before the disease went too far.

I’ll have been living from the age of 67 forward in a one-room, government-supplied retirement home which I was forced in to because given the way the economy developed I was never able to secure enough wealth to replace the home I lost in the wake of the 2008 financial crash.

My 401k had been destroyed years previously. First by a government program to start taxing it, secondly by the massive inflation which was necessary to get our annual deficit to become 15% of GDP.

While I officially retired at the age of 67 and started to collect my Social Security (worth about 50% less than it is today because during that bout of inflation the government kept insisting, in spite of rising food and fuel prices, that inflation was non-existent and thus SS payments remained constant in dollar amounts while going down in actual value), I actually quit work at the age of 60 because I found out that by a varied combination of government benefits, I could actually get more income by sitting on my duff than by working 40 hours a week. At that point, it stopped bothering me so much that a cheeseburger costs $12 because Uncle Sam was picking up the tab. Until, that is, they banned the purchase of cheeseburgers in the interests of cutting National Health Service costs.

I did get some exercise from the age of about 57 on because the government mandates on fuel efficiency priced me out of automobile ownership. This resulted in a great deal of walking on my part as the inefficient bus system provided by government didn’t get me to where I needed to be when I needed to be there. I moved out of the suburbs and in to the city center because at least there were stores closer to home: on the other hand, I had to pay higher prices for the basics because government policy was to forbid “big box” stores in the area because they provided “unfair” competition to the small shops.

I found as I entered my 50′s that food was harder to obtain – the price kept rising and there kept being less of it. Various agricultural policies were taking more farm land out of production while various taxes were making the production and consumption of things like beef out of the question. I was given Supplementary Food Insurance which allowed me to buy whole grain bread, government cheese and all the potatoes I could eat.

I got a boost to my health as I gave up cigarette smoking when the banned it outdoors, where I did most of my smoking. Also, even buying generic smokes at the Indian reservation was running me $80 a carton. On the other hand, I found out that ‘Capulco Gold Lights were an admirable substitute, though they did make things a bit hazy; on the plus side, I was permitted to fire up a joint even indoors at work!

My initial reaction to this post was that Noonan was suffering from eating to many sour grapes. However, there is something more deeper and more telling about this post than first met my eyes. The writer is clearly anguished that his worldview has been rejected, in clear electoral terms, by million of people in the United States of America. Terrans like Mr Noonan believed that the election of 2008 and the attendant social struggles that have been championed by the Democratic Party [steps toward single payer health care, tax relief for the middle class, gay rights, worker’s rights, women’s reproductive rights and pay equality] was an historical outlier driven by the desire for minorities and liberal voters to elect the first man of color to the highest office in the land. They did that and nearly immediately forces in the conservative power camp lept into the fray with hundreds of millions of dollars to give birth to the TEA Party which was able to disguise bigotry behind a hood of lowering taxes for the middle class.

Of course, it is well realized now that this was not only a waste of treasure by the Kochs and Adelsons of American conservatism but also a group delusion on the part of their lesser heeled followers. All of the lies failed in the end for the conservatives refused to admit the clearest of truths–their numbers are smaller than the numbers of the coalition built by liberals. Plainly, the right does not know how to attract blacks, gays, Latinos or women to their ranks because their policies have a negative impact on these groups and they will continue to do so as they triple down and move more to the Right.

Noonan believes he will die from the lack of health care to which he can be exposed due to ObamaCare in 2041 at the age of 77. More than likely Mr Noonan will die of stupidity and fear long before that if he continues to believe that his worldview has a national following large enough to have a majority in both houses of Congress. Noonan is angry that his beliefs have been rejected by the voting public and to be fair we likely would have seen a similar reaction from liberals had Obama lost the election. That die has been cast; the American people have spoken and Noonan and the Religious Right and the TEA Party bigots still are far more free than virtually anyone in opposition politically anywhere else on Terra.

The suffering for Mr Noonan must be horrible. His wishes of a Cold War apocalypse where his End Times beliefs would come to fruition were dashed so he joined in the worship of conservatism’s only deity–Ronald Reagan. Years later his own religion was exposed as corrupt as countless priests were found guilty of the sexual abuse of children not only abroad but in the United States. Then comes the criminal behavior of the Bush administration post 9/11 to restrict freedom strictly out of fear that corporations and the wealthy would flee and America bombarded with terror attacks. Now Noonan is staring down a recovery for which a liberal government can take credit with a man of color at the helm. These are dark times for the man who feels that America is devolving into communism when actually what is happening is America is becoming just socialist enough to assure that capitalists continue to be prosperous. As a demon journalist I wish for Mark Edward Noonan, our American cousin, two things, that he have a long life so he can witness all the prosperity to come and that he live in interesting times.

THE FALL OF DINESH D’SOUZA

[Journ.]

I’ve been watching carefully the descent of Dinesh D’Souza from the lofty pantheon of conservative punditry and Fundamentalist Christianism based political power based on his power to agitate the conservative base especially in regard to President Barack Obama. In a recent article written by Warren Cole Smith in The World Magazine, a news sheet with a considerably right wing and Christian bent, D’Souza is said to have been seen in the company of one Denise Odie Joseph II at the ironically named Truth for a New Generation Conference at the First Baptist Church North in Spartanburg, South Carolina. Smith reports that named sources informed him that D’Souza told them that Ms Joseph, who is known now to also be married, was his fiancee. Another source told the World magazine reporter that it appeared that D’Souza and Joseph checked in to the same hotel room. This is a serious crisis for a noted evangelical speaker at a conference for evangelicals dealing with issues such as, “The impact of the gay agenda on America,” “Homeschooling: It’s not about schooling,” and “Is the Bible intolerant?”

Dinesh D’souza upon learning of the article being posted at World magazine’s website became at first, I imagine, became quite fearful for his position in the inner sanctum of conservative politics and Christianist opinion. Of course, as the presenter for Obama 2016 D’Souza was a favorite of religious conservatives who hate President Obama. D’Souza was also the President of King’s College in New York a position that only served to embellish his conservative bona fides. Today, D’Souza is out at King’s College and scrambling to explain what exactly happened in Spartanburg, South Carolina.

Why is Obama on the social issues — and I’m thinking here of abortion, I’m thinking here of gay marriage — why is Obama so aggressive in attacking the traditional values agenda? I think the reason for it is because when Obama thinks about colonialism, about the British and the French who went abroad to conquer other countries, or earlier the Spanish and the Portuguese, I come from a part of India that was a Portuguese colony at one time, I think for Obama colonialism is identified not just with the soldiers but also with the missionaries. Remember it’s the missionaries that went alongside the conquerors, the conquistadors, came to the Americas and worked on converting the Indians and later missionaries went to China, India and Japan. So I think this is the problem, Obama doesn’t like traditional Christianity because he identifies it with colonialism. Obama’s own Christianity is more of a Third World liberation theology, a very different kind of Jeremiah Wright type philosophy, summarized in the idea that America is the rogue nation in the world.–Dinesh D’Souza in a conference call with Rick Scarborough’s 40 Days to Save America.

The assumed fear, now fully realized as the sunlight of public knowledge exposed D’Souza’s hypocrisy, soon gave way to anger. This man decided that to come out swinging against his enemies, this time all on the Right, was the only course of action to save him from being thrown onto the ash heap of conservative punditry. He told the story that he and Joseph stayed in separate rooms initially, but then when it became clear that the hotel was fully booked he changed his story and said they shared a room but no sex took place. This is neither here nor there to me because the sex isn’t what’s important here in the final analysis.

D’Souza was a noted apologist; he was on the front lines for Christianists in their perceived war against atheism, all religions other than Christianity as they see it, and the notion of a homosexual agenda. This left the man with only one remaining course of action and that was confession. As a man who referred to himself as a Roman Catholic after his years as an undergraduate at Dartmouth College, D’Souza was especially keen on the rules regarding adultery and marriage. Divorcing his wife of twenty years would have been a scandal in itself for a Catholic apoligist, but D’Souza burned that bridge when he crossed the road into fundamentalist, yet nondenominational, Christianity in the late 1990s. To this writer it appears this coincides with the time that D’Souza began to have problems within his marriage–or read more clearly that he decided he wanted to have relationships with women that were not his wife.

Now I’m not the sort of guy that would restrict Mr D’Souza’s clear constitutional right to pursue happiness as long as that pursuit breaks no laws. Oh, wait, that’s not actually in the Constitution it’s in the Declaration of Independence. Mea culpa. D’Souza’s own words point to an arrogance that relies on the people who actually believe in conservative values than those values themselves. It seems that once a person becomes famous in the conservative realm all the same foibles of reality tend to strike them just as much as they do those who espouse liberal political ideals. I want to make a point about late in life conversions as well before I finish this up. What appears to many to be a revelation from some divine power is coming to be understood as nothing more that swapping one set of restrictive rules for another. Newt Gingrich, twice divorced, converted to Roman Catholicism to give his third marriage an air of greater respectability as well as open a new door to national politics within the GOP. Gingrich may or may not be the smartest guy who calls himself a Conservative but he’s no different from Eliot Spitzer, or any other politician that wanted to have sex with someone other than their spouse. The only difference is that most liberal pols aren’t constantly hammering their opposition with calls that they are immoral because of what they do in bed.


In Hindsight

A number of things could, and in my opinion should, have brought down Dinesh D’Souza. His support of torture of detainees, his anti-gay bigotry or his clear hatred for the President of the United States just to name a few. What really brings him down isn’t simply that he wanted a new partner, or even that he pushed back against the Conservative press and blogosphere to try to maintain his lofty status. What brings Dinesh D’Souza down are his own words:

“If you read John Milton’s Paradise Lost, you discover that the book is populated with heroes and villains. The heroes, of course, are God, Jesus, and the good angels, man is sort of in the middle, and then you have the bad guys: Satan and his legion of deputy devils. Critics have noted that the action in the book always intensifies when the devils come into the picture, and Satan himself is an irresistibly attractive character. God is changeless; he always takes the same position and says the same things. But Satan is incredibly creative. Every time he is thwarted, he comes up with a new scheme or a new project. He is, from a literary perspective, a very rich and adaptive character.

Years ago, the suspicion began to arise that Satan was actually Milton’s hero. As one critic put it, “Milton is of the devil’s party without even knowing it.” Look at Satan’s reason for rebelling against God. It’s not that he doesn’t recognize that God is greater than he is. He does. It’s just that he doesn’t want to play by anybody else’s rules. This idea that it is better to reign in hell than to serve in heaven is Satan’s motto, and it turns out that this is also the motto of contemporary atheists such as Christopher Hitchens.”–Dinesh D’Souza in an interview by Marcia Segelstein, Salvo magazine, Salvo 7, Winter 2008

And if that doesn’t frost you enough:

“If you really look at the motivations of contemporary atheists, you’ll find that they don’t even really reject Christian theology. It’s not as if the atheist objects to the resurrection or the parting of the sea; rather, it is Christian morality to which atheists object, particularly Christian moral prohibitions in the area of sex. The atheist looks at all of Christianity’s “thou shalt nots”—homosexuality is bad; divorce is bad; adultery is bad; premarital sex is bad—and then looks at his own life and says, “If these things are really bad, then I’m a bad guy. But I’m not a bad guy; I’m a great guy. I must thus reinterpret or (preferably) abolish all of these accusatory teachings that are putting me in a bad light.”

How does one do that? One way is liberal Christianity—you simply reinterpret Christian teachings as if they don’t really mean what they say. The better way, of course, is to ask where morality comes from. Well, it comes from one of two places. It either comes from ourselves—these are the rules that we make up as we go along—or it comes from some transcendent source. To get rid of God, then, is to remove the shadow of moral judgment. This doesn’t mean that you completely eliminate morality, but it does mean that you reduce morality to a tool that human societies construct for their own advantages. It means that morality can change, and that old rules can be set aside. You can see why this would be a very attractive proposition for the guy who wants to live his life unmolested by the injunctions and prohibitions of Christian morality.”–Ibid.

WHAT THE OREGON TEA PARTY TERRORIST BIGOTRY BUS TELLS US ABOUT THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN LOVE AND HATE

I’ve seen some really dumb things in my job here at The Dis Brimstone Daily Pitchfork in the past 15 years doing research and for a brief time serving as interim Editorial Page Editor. Nothing, and I do mean nothing compares to this:

Okay, put into its simplest terms anyone that would drive this thing around has some issues. There’s a lack of love in his or her life that can only be filled by fanatical religious belief. Lucky for this person they live in America where people just shake their heads or laugh rather than pulling the owner out and setting trailer on fire. That said I want to show you what love looks like as a counter point.

So conservative reader, how is your marriage suffering because these two people are in love and have committed to each other? It’s love despite what Mitt Romney says and it should be respected in marriage if they choose to commit to marriage. Ownership of the word marriage is the bunker where conservative bigotry is making its last stand against Freedom in America. Love is so clearly fundamental to everyone it seems other than fundamentalists and a few black preachers who are still scared of the gay.


In Hindsight

The Culture Wars, as I have said many times really ended in 1920 when women got the right to vote. Now no matter how many qurans Terry Jones burns, or how many rallies for the TEA Party the Koch Brothers have or how many stern letters Catholic Bishops send to the White House they have all been exposed as frauds and the people have decided that America isn’t a faux Christian nation but a secular Liberal/Progressive nation that assures even the most vile and odious right wing religous nuts have the right to freedom of speech.

MITT ROMNEY IS A POLITICAL AMATEUR; PASTOR TERRY JONES AND SAM BACILE SHOULD BE ARRESTED FOR DEPRAVED INDIFFERENCE

An Internet video little seen in the United States, but promoted by Qu’ran burning Pastor Terry Jones, which depicts the Prophet Muhammad [qcpn!] as a paedophile, has sparked widespread violence in North Africa. The violence in Benghazi, Libya has lead to the death of United States Ambassador to Libya J. Christopher Stevens in a rocket propelled grenade attack. Yesterday being 11 September, was a political press embargo day for both GOP candidate Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama, out of respect for those who lost their lives in the terror attacks eleven years ago.

When the cause of the violence in Cairo and Benghazi became known The White House remained silent seeking to gain more details about the scaling of the embassy walls in Cairo and the armed violence in Benghazi. The United States Embassy in Cairo issued the following statement prior to the violence in an effort to defuse anger about the film:

The Embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims – as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions. Today, the 11th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States, Americans are honoring our patriots and those who serve our nation as the fitting response to the enemies of democracy. Respect for religious beliefs is a cornerstone of American democracy. We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others

This statement was directed at Sam Bacile, a 52 year old Israeli-American real estate developer who wrote, filmed and produced the Muslim bashing film The Innocence of Muslims. However, the Romney campaign decided that this would be a golden opportunity, on 11 September a day of mourning for patritotic conservatives to attack the Obama administration for being “weak on Islam.” The Romney campaign issued this statement, which it states should have been held until 1 miniute after midnight this morning:

“It’s disgraceful that the Obama administration’s first response was not to condemn attacks on our diplomatic missions, but to sympathize with those who waged the attacks.”

This of course is chateaubriand with a rasher of bacon to the far right who are already in the Romney camp. Romney’s advisors miscalculated horribly, which is what political amateurs do, because the above statement was issued before it was known the ambassador and three others had been killed. This is not a gaffe it is political incompetence on the part of the Romney campaign as it was released to attack President Obama on 11 September. Are you listening undecided American voter? These are the people who want to drown America in another war of choice, this time with Iran, with no clear exit strategy. Haven’t you seen that movie before?

The Obama campaign responded to the Romney campaign early this morning in the form of an e-mail sent by campaign spokesman Ben LaBolt:

“We are shocked that, at a time when the United States of America is confronting the tragic death of one of our diplomatic officers in Libya, Gov. Romney would choose to launch a political attack.”

Sam Bacile, who is allegedly in hiding in fear of his life, has made no statements but Pastor Terry Jones vows to continue to press on and show clips of this obscure yet fatal film. This is the pastor’s right, but he has to keep in mind, in light of the events in Benghazi and Cairo that bigoted actions can have a brutal cost, globally, in the digital age. I would say that inciting people to riot and do violence is a crime and because of this Sam Bacile and Pastor Terry Jones are responsible by their incitement of those offended by this “film” and they both should be arrested and charged with depraved indifference. Both men sought this sort of violence and they sought fame in their communities for being so vehemently anti-Islam. They should now both reap what they have sown.
