I call on artists to make Nascar jerseys for all of the D.C.
politicians, Democrats and Republicans alike, who are – with a few
exceptions – bought and paid for. For example, Obama has raised more money from Wall Street than anyone else.

Time Warner's PAC office sits right across Laffayette Park - their glassed-in conference room looks down directly at the Whitehouse.  Do you suppose that is a coincidence?

I think the 1980 Alan Arkin film SIMON was the first to promote this idea. But it also added rubber noses and clown wigs.

Yeah, there were some messed up people.  Somewhere (maybe on Glenn Beck, I don't remember) I saw videos and pictures of Nazi rallies in Madison Square Garden and Nazi camps in NJ).  Of course this was in the 30s when people didn't know (or maybe pretended not to know) what Nazis were all about.

 

Probably several around here who wish Wesley Crusher could warp the space-time continuum for them so they could go on holiday there.

Who is monetarily backing the amalgam of school, community, city, cultural, and nation wrecking misfits that comprise the mob of envy bound together by nothing more than "critical theory"?

blacks, jews, homos, communists, illegals, muslims, fetus killers?

michael moore, cornell west, van jones, russell simmons?

What a crew of degenerates.  The jew is behind each, of course,

here we have a foreign leader addressing our congress and getting what was it, 19 standing ovations?

who is your daddy boenhner...? the man is a traitor like just about if not all of them and he should pay for what he has done like a traitor should or does the concept of traitor no longer exist anymore?

by the way, outlaw, please stop sugarcoating it and irritating the jews......thanks in advance....

For the record "Outlaw", I looked at your first 25 posts you made after joining ZH

- 9 had anti-Jew slurs

- 7 had anti-black slurs

-- of those 7 posts, 3 are also counted in the anti-Jew slur category since it contained both

- At least 3 contained other ethnic slurs (2 of those already counted above)

- 1 recommended killing members of Congress (+ 2 others unnamed, so either non-voting member of Congress or Pres + VP)

- 1 recommended violence against Jews

- 1 hoped Obama would be killed

 

OTOH, being a glass is half-full kind of guy, 9 posts out of 25 (almost 40%!) contained no slurs or threats of/hopes for violence!

 

Do your children know the hate their father has in his heart?  Your wife?  Your mother?  What happened to you that made you so depraved?

I do like pastrami, though I have to be careful as it gives me bad breath.  But it is yummy, especially when warm

I have no idea what "splc" means though.  Is that a typo?  Unfortunately either your typing skills or my ignorance of the term  took the sting out of your barb. 

Try again.

EDIT:  Did you mean spic or Southern Poverty Law Center?  I looked "splc" up, FYI.  I still don't get the connection to pastrami though (but you did make me hungry!).

For the record, I think the Southern Poverty Law Center is a bunch of left-wing hacks.

one of them , brendon o'connell sits in acia prison, cooling off for 3 years, for daring to say things in public that caused the ears to itch and was imprisoned for hate speech. imagine that. hate speech. what a joke. they want this here as well. if outlaw was in australia, he would be found and he would be arrested for saying such things. i kid you not....

actually the small voices of dissent on this issue have no say in what goes on in that event, correct?  the real problem with ows is that it is controlled by the same people who are controlling our government. any movement of this type requres funding. the small voices of dissent on this issue like most in the "patriot movement" or whatever, do not have any real money to speak of , and so they speak while they still can on the only free venue they can, the internet... lenin said...........to control the opposition , you must lead them....

 

i leave you with a interesting video by the admittedly eccentric and former jew , nathanael kapner........

 

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IYYtE42bddQ

as a christian i can tell you that most of my life i was hit over the head about this stuff on
God's chosen people stuff, and now we see that this was a (for all intents and purposes) 20th century idea , at least here in the states......and a powerful one it was , no? what does this do to anyone wishing to ask questions or to voice dissent? it squelches them right off the bat, because the Church in this country is controlled and this is why it is silent on so many issues that will soon enough affect it in a most deleterious manner.........kapner speaks on many issues such as this and people had better listen. in the middle ages such men were called apostates because they turned on their own people.......what better man to know the jewish mind than a former jew......during the disputations in the middle ages that were argued from time to time before various popes, the man arguing the Christian case was usually a former jew.....imagine that......and so now comes kapner at this late hour........hmmmm....

Avarice & corruption knows no race or religion.

One of my best friends was 30yrs my senior and held the "dirty joo" meme until his death. A wonderful man in every other respect. I used to say to him...I'm shocked, shocked I say, to find blacks opening businesses to sell jeri curl products to blacks and the Chinese having the gall to open Chinese restaurants ;-)

Its when I'm forced by my own government to subsidize Chinese people having their hair jeri curled I start to have very large problems...lol.

The arab monarchs are not joos. They pillage their own peoples wealth, live in "castles", eat only the finest meals as their own people live in abject poverty and eat flat bread. Chavez is not a joo, neither is that dickweed Mexican president.

Greed and power lust is not unique to one race or religion...it never has been and never will be.

on the issue of arab monarchs, i have had arguments with muslims about this very subject on some patriot radio forums......they come around seeking support for what is happening to them, i can understand that for sure.......i say to them. how do know your leader is arabic?  silence........i say just because someone dresses arabic, speaks arabic and acts arabic does not necessarily a arab make , no?  they agree. they think there is a lot of stuff going on and they are waking up to it. take for instance the fact that muslims always go around saying well the world has over a billion muslims in it.....i say fine. then perhaps you can explain to me why it is your people always seem to get the short end of the stick. why is that?  what causes that........for instance some arabs understand.........to wit:

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OP2h_DvWobQ

 

the jews have this enemy. its called islam. the jews or those who call themselves jews, decided they wanted to live on arab lands in a place called palestine and they took it by force and killed many of its indigenous inhabitants..now they call it israel.....for many years before that, islam and jewry collaborated especially during the times of the islamic conquest. many jews in their own self interest converted to islam.......its true........and they remained there, while in the privacy of their own homes, etc, kept their allegiances to judaic talmudism. this collaborative effort has been in effect for a very long time. but now things are different. the arabs are no longer of any usage, since the jews have their own state now and they have their own money and their own power and 400 nuclear bombs, which by the way, the israelis stole from the technology from the united states in order to build........and for this jfk was killed.....but that is another issue....

so now the arabs and islam are the enemy where in days gone by they were useful idiots......the goal was to annihilate christianity and in many areas of the middle east this was accomplished...islam accomplished this task admirably but now as i said before they are in the way. so now they are the enemy. so what do you do when your enemy is so much bigger than you are numerically speaking.....well you divide them and have them fuss with each other, correct? so now we have sunnis and we have shias and we have wahhabis and assassins and mystics and on and on it goes. so this divides the enemy and makes him much more easier to control and to attack. and so now comes the us army, another group of useful idiots who are now serving their purpose, to destroy the jewish enemies, islam..........and so it is. and one day very, very soon and that day is on the near horizon , we too shall lose our usefulness and this is happening now....have you noticed any deterioration in this country as of late? hmmm?

i argue with these arabs. i say listen, is it any wonder why your people never seem to be able to get anywhere? is there a reason for this? but in the endgame, islam too, is a interesting subject in and of itself. for you see , it too was a manufactured religion, that was created for a purpose and then it was set loose on the middle east and north africa. now having said that, i can day , that sometimes , when something is created like this, it can and does take on a life of its own.......and i believe this is the case in islam. they retook jerusalem and they refused to turn it over the to the jews (under the auspices of the english king) and it was then that the jews realized they had lost control of it.....but no matter, when in doubt collaborate and become a useful subject at court and so they did......and the christians...? well they bought the farm, at least at first, but then they were offered the way out, and that was paying the religion tax. i think the muslim caliphs started to realize if they go around killing everyone in a place, then they would have no subjects to govern or tax...........

and that is just the tip of the iceberg

"the jews have this enemy. its called islam."

Islam has this enemy...its called anyone that does not prostrate themselves before it. It works the other way as well doesn't it?

I'll tell you here and now, I have no intention of ever converting to it or paying the jizyah tax for not converting to it or dying without taking a bunch of the sons of bitches with me who would be trying to impose it on me.

"the jews or those who call themselves jews, decided they wanted to live on arab lands in a place called palestine and they took it by force and killed many of its indigenous inhabitants.."

So are we talking Joshua here or Cannanites?

If so, this is long before something called Islam was ever invented by Mohammad. The word Israel itself comes from Egyptian texts in relating to how they were conqured in that place and then enslaved by them. Egyptians. It should be noted they did not call the region Palestine either.

Look HPD, these people (both sides) have been fighting and dying over those rocks for centuries. They are surrounded by nations who not only want to see the nation gone but "that people" exterminated...wiped from the face of the earth. Not just defeat them...but slaughter them and their children so that they are no more.

One has to ask why that is.

From every standpoint I have tried to look at it from...it comes up pure evil...from a right to self determination standpoint or religious or cultural. You have the luxury of believing what you want whether the facts fit or not.

The facts I have gathered point to Islam being a bastard religion which allows its adherents to lie to "infidels" to achieve any political or social goal desired. No other religion on earth is like this, where the act of common decency (telling the truth) gets a get out of jail free card in the written word of it.

Believe what you want...I'm done with the subject.

well bob, if you can listen to a guy like kapner trying to reason with you, and he is a former jew telling the truth about what is going on, then how can anyone else try and reason with you about it.  for you see, it is real truth it is the deep dark secret that most people refuse to accept or acknowledge. i as a christian man must balance this truth with  things that i know to be true from a christian perspective with the way this world works and always has worked. now believe me, that can be a chore at times.  one thing is for sure. money is power and power is money. when you control most of the world's money then it must be ascertained that you also control most of the world itself. as usual, all things boil down to race and tribe and everything else really doesn't matter that much , right now. this is why nato is having such a hard time in libya. they have run into the ancient concept of tribes.  this ancient concept of tribes will be revistited here again one day. it has to happen in order for the people to survive and in the end as it is in the prisons of today, the races and tribes will seperate and protect each other in the anarchy that is coming. this is my own theory about it and if you can come up with a better scenerio i am all ears...

 

by the way you mentioned feminism....do you know who started feminism and why it was started?

Bob's picture

I know pretty much everything you need to know about feminism.  Including that you can't reason with the deeply sincere yet twisted fanatics.  Nobody can "know why it was started," (as if it were some clever plot that sprang from a single deranged mind) although the grounds for popular support should be obvious. 

There is a good reason people see this great conspiracy theories as bigotry.  You could apply them to men.  You could distinguish a little finer and pick on white men.  You could get even finer and pick on New Yorkers and Londoners. 

You can find some angle for picking on any group.  Others will see the passion that is its real foundation, but if you've invested a world of time in "study," you'll miss that element entirely.  Others will be more than happy to support you, however, especially in the echo chambers of the internet.

Why not just stick to the game itself, rather than the players? 

Not satisfying enough . . . somehow?

I'm too old and painfully wiser to imagine any longer that this world is going to fit my fantasies in even gross detail.  This particular incipient movement has yet to even claim a single focus.  With all the jockying for position now going on its impossible to reliably predict it's outcome, imo.

Why do so many Jew-haters try to pretend it's just Israel they are upset with?  Why do they hate a whole group of people?

How is this any different from hating blacks, whites, Asians, Indians, Irish, or anything else?

They are no different from Nazi, neo-Nazis, KKK, Black Panthers, and other hate groups.

Granted, not all take action against others, so their hate should not be illegal (the concept of a hate crime is idiotic), but it does show what small-minded little worms they are.  I know not many here are Christian, but the depth and breadth of their passion truly is a satanic influence.

We are not meant to hate each other, but to love and cooperate and build each other up.

Yes, people (Jew and non-Jew) do evil and should be punished for it.  But hating any whole group of people is completely irrational.  Strike that, it is evil.  That may not be your intent, but it is the outcome.
