I refuse to even hold my nose and vote a lesser evil. From the New York Review of Books article, The Clinton System:
[D]irect payments to Hillary Clinton’s political campaigns, including for the Senate in 2000 and for the presidency in 2008 and now in 2016 … had reached a total of$712.4 million as of September 30, 2015. Major donors include four of the world’s largest banks: Citigroup, Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan Chase and Morgan Stanley.
Including the 27 amendments, the Constitution of the United States of America contains 7,591 words. Not one of those 7,591 words are: god, christianity, christian, jesus, christ, lord, commandment, new testament, or bible.
If you’re not god-damned liars, you’re god-damned fools, and a clear and present danger to my grandchildren’s survival.
Santa Claus, Saint Nicholas, Saint Nick, Father Christmas, Kris Kringle or simply Santa is a figure with historical origins who, in many Western cultures, bring gifts to the homes of good children on 24 December, the night before Christmas Day. The modern Santa Claus is derived from the British figure of Father Christmas, the Dutch figure of Sinterklaas, and Saint Nicholas, the historical Greek bishop and gift-giver of Myra. During the Christianization of Germanic Europe, this figure may also have absorbed elements of the god Odin, who was associated with the Germanic pagan midwinter event of Yule and led the Wild Hunt, a ghostly procession through the sky.
Santa Claus is generally depicted as a portly, joyous, white-bearded man—sometimes with spectacles—wearing a red coat with white collar and cuffs, white-cuffed red trousers, and black leather belt and boots and who carries a bag full of gifts for children. Images of him rarely have a beard with no moustache. This image became popular in the United States and Canada in the 19th century due to the significant influence of the 1823 poem “A Visit From St. Nicholas” and of caricaturist and political cartoonist Thomas Nast. This image has been maintained and reinforced throughsong, radio, television, children’s books and films.
The Santa Claus we all know and love — that big, jolly man in the red suit with a white beard — didn’t always look that way. In fact, many people are surprised to learn that prior to 1931, Santa was depicted as everything from a tall gaunt man to a spooky-looking elf. He has donned a bishop’s robe and a Norse huntsman’s animal skin. In fact, when Civil War cartoonist Thomas Nast drew Santa Claus for Harper’s Weekly in 1862, Santa was a small elflike figure who supported the Union. Nast continued to draw Santa for 30 years, changing the color of his coat from tan to the red he’s known for today.
From 1931 to 1964, Coca-Cola advertising showed Santa delivering toys (and playing with them!), pausing to read a letter and enjoy a Coke, visiting with the children who stayed up to greet him, and raiding the refrigerators at a number of homes (which could get him shot today).
Santa Claus has been believed to make a list of children throughout the world, categorizing them according to their behavior (“naughty” or “nice”) and to deliver presents, including toys, and candy to all of the well-behaved children in the world, and sometimes coal to the naughty children, on the single night of Christmas Eve. He accomplishes this feat with the aid of the elves who make the toys in the workshop and the flying reindeer who pull his sleigh. He is commonly portrayed as living at the North Pole and saying “ho ho ho” often.
Ha ha ha. Selling shit to rubes. Hmmm… Where’d they learn that?
Flying a Confederate battle flag is no different than flying a NAZI swastika. If you fly a Confederate battle flag or a NAZI swastika you are a traitor, an enemy of the American People, enemy of the American Way of Life, and should be shot on sight. No hesitation, no questions asked. No quarter.
So too the Israeli battle star.
You are a clear and present danger to my grandchildren’s future.
You can buy books down at the “christian” bookstore written by Phil Robertson, a man who not only looks a lot like Usama binDead since December 2001 but claims to be working for Dog and The Almighty Jesus Christ!TM, and whose suggested solution to the problem at hand is to convert them, or kill them.
As I’ve looked deeper into this Daesh cult, itself a sub-cult of a sub-cult of a sub-cult of the Abrahamic Cult – the Judean-Christian cults – I am struck by the remarkable similarities with the Jew-Christian end times cults here in “America”. Both await a precious lord and master’s return, his arrival on a flying white horse attended by thousands of angels to carry the faithful away to paradise, though for both before that can happen a number of ducks need be in a row, ducks that all seem to involve rape, murder and all manner of war and mayhem – until 2/3 of Israel and the Jews are destroyed and the blood runs as deep as a horse’s bridle, and that it is both their Manifest Destiny to put those ducks in the row.
The word “daesh” (pronounced dooche) is a derogatory term more civilized Muslims use to refer to nutball fundamentalist end-timers. We can use it here.
The barbarians are inside the gates.
You want me to call it “radical Islam?” “Islamic extremism, Islamic terrorism?”
No problem: it’s radical Islam. Islamic extremism, Islamic terrorism. ‘K?
Now, when I see radical Christianity, when you ram your the world is six thousand years old science is bullshit and Jesus is going to float down out of the heavens on a white horse with a thousand angels to carry the faithful away to paradise a generation after the establishment and subsequent destruction of Israel (and the rest of us) bullshit down our throats that’s what I’m going to call it, what it is: “radical Christianity.” When you preach hatred and intolerance from the pundits and the pulpits, when you turn your backs on the orphans of a war you are responsible for because they’re not white and not “Christian” I’m going to call it what it is: “Christian extremism.” And when you bomb medical providers, as you gun down congregationalists at an African American church, when you send money to Israel to finance a genocide of an indigenous population I’m going to call it what it is: “Christian terrorism”.
Likewise, when I see radical Judaism, this notion the Jews are “God’s Chosen People” and the rest of us are naught but cattle bred to service their ends, I’m going to call it what it is: “radical Judaism.” When a Zionist movement can invest an hundred and fifty years perfecting the propaganda to justify the invasion and occupation of an innocent and unwitting country I’m going to call it what it is: “Jewish extremism.” And when the Zionist invader and occupier perpetrates a genocide upon the indigenous population, forcing them into open air concentration camps where they are routinely bombed and their children gunned down in the streets I’m going to call it what it is: “Jewish terrorism.”
You want me to call it “radical Islamism?” Not a problem.
You all bow down to the same damned dog.
