Anti-US Protests Spread To India, Bangladesh, Indonesia

Tyler Durden's picture


Did we say Arab Fall? We meant global fall. From the Star Tribune: "Thousands of Kashmiri Muslims protested Friday against an anti-Islam film, burning U.S. flags and calling President Barack Obama a "terrorist," while the top government cleric here reportedly demanded Americans leave the volatile Indian-controlled region immediately. In the southern Indian city of Chennai, protesters threw stones at the U.S. Consulate, shattering some windows and burning Obama in effigy. Police quickly cleared the area, arresting more than 100 protesters. U.S. Embassy officials in Delhi did not immediately comment." And elsewhere: "In Bangladesh, about 5,000 hardline Muslims marched in Dhaka's streets after Friday prayers, burning U.S. and Israeli flags and calling for the death of the filmmaker. Police prevented them from marching toward the U.S. Embassy several miles away." And elsewhere: "In Indonesia, the world's most populous Muslim nation, about 200 protesters chanted slogans and held up signs in a largely peaceful protest outside the heavily guarded U.S. Embassy in Jakarta. American diplomatic outposts increased security worldwide this week after clips of the film went viral online and sparked violent protests in the Middle East. About 20 protesters outside the U.S. Embassy in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, shouted "Allahu akbar!" and handed reporters a letter addressed to the U.S. ambassador expressing their anger over the movie and calling for greater respect for religions."

Many more coming, providing a convenient cover to launch a defensive strategy against the entire Muslim world. Or something like that.

It's all under control though. 50 or so marines are on their way.

And let's not forget the silver lining: Ben Bernanke will single-handedly "stimulate" the US economy, and this time not by diluting its currency, but by printing replacement US flags for all those being currently burned down in literally half the world, and rising.

They are "demanding more respect for religion"!!! How about some fucking respect for freedom you uneducated, brain washed, pieces of shit!!!!

We are getting what we deserve with this shit though, pandering to those those fucking scumbag dictators for their fucking oil!!! This thing is so out of control, it's not even funny!!!

Going forward, we need to establish a litmus test for any Country that wants our money or help in the future, one question........"do you believe in freedom as the basis for your society"? If yes, let's talk and see if your living up to it, if no.......go fuck yourself!!!!!

"As far as I can tell, Islam does not believe in, nor respect, freedom."

Depending on your interpretation, neither does Christianity.  In fact, those that interpret the Bible as it probably should (I read it as essentially implying the ultimate individual sovereignty of man "the kingdom of god is within you") are typically branded as heretics and "handled" accordingly.  Reference Tolstoy, Ghandi, and Martin Luther King as particularly famous examples of these "heretics", the Quakers are particularly hated by "certain interests" as well because of this stance.  Puritan WASP or death, amiright?

Exactly right, which is why Jefferson and Adams made damn sure they envisioned a Country that was NOT run by religion in any way! But at the same time said, if you want to be fucking crazy, you have the right to and we will protect that right, however you dont have the right to control the govt or form a national religion! Because they understood power corrupts and govt power really corrupts, but religious govt power is fucking murderous, crazy corrupt (ala Iran and the boys)

Yeah, you're "free" to submit to GOD. burn in damnation for eternity.  It's your choice.

It's the same as Christianity, really.  Obviously only a loving and merciful creator would put us all here and DARE us to reject him and invoke his wrath.

As far as what is accepted as commond doctine from those three religions discussed above, the NT comes nowhere near to advocating the kind of violence and outright crap that the Talmud or Koran advocate. Nowhere near.

Saying that people who come in the name of religion have done bad things is fine. But the NT can hardly justify the kinds of behaviors that the Koran or Talmud justify.

To some of us, this is an important difference.

You won't find many theocrats quoting the NT when they're trying to justify stoning fags and bombing brown people.

If the 'Murkin Xtian "right" would pay more attention to Jesus' message, they wouldn't constantly be pissing off the other 80% of the country.

Primitive fanatics gonna fanat.  Not much to do about it.

True--no disagreement here, Blunder.

But my point is about the texts and how they differ. It makes me sad to see the NT get lumped in w/the other two.

I think it is interesting in that these protesters indirectly tell you alot about themselves. If you saw an offensive (pick any offense) made in India, Europe or a free country would you immediately associate it with their government? We would not. I would not protest the Indian embassy if something offensive to Christianity was filmed in India. Maplethorpe did overtly purposely offensive Christian art and nothing got burnt down. Hell, we could not even stop his government funding.

My point is these people think in terms of authoritarian govenment. They assume that everything in a country is controlled and approved by the government because that is the way they operate. I think it is inculcated deeply in their culture and it comes through their religion. They have a religion based on conquest and submission and merging of government and religion. The only type of government acceptable to them is a theocracy of some sort. It raises an interesting question of whether or not they can do some form of pluralistic government as we in the West understand it. I tend to think not. In a direct democracy how many think they would immediately vote to eliminate all the Jews, Christians and other minority religions in their countries? I think they would.

I would guess it is nearly impossible to move forward on any kind of social or even technological progress. It raises real questions of whom we would support for government and even what trade relations we would want to have. I personally have recently changed my mind on what I think of dictators in the Middle East. I viscerally hate dictators everywhere. Hell, I hate bureaucrats who rule all western nations. However, only dictators seem to keep any form of peace in these countries.

That is a shallow stupid comment. We are friends with democracies everywhere but democracies do not exist everywhere. In fact, democracies control only a small but the most prosperous parts of the globe. America, like all countries have interests. The point that I make is that perhaps dictators are the better of two evil choices in some countries. You think the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt plans on a pluralistic society that includes religious minorities or setting aside sharia law for them? From an outsider perspective a Mubarak may be better than a Mursi.

"Mob rule" is GOOD when it's your preferred mob.

It's BAD when it's a mob you don't like.

Honestly, it's amazing to me how many folks here have fully bought-in to the idea that these protests/riots/attacks/wtfever are "responses" to the release of an offensive film on the Internet.

Psst: the film is just the EXCUSE.  These folks have plenty of reason to be pissed off and want to firebomb our embassies ALREADY.

LA burns about every 30 years.  Rodney King getting the black beat out of him wasn't really the CAUSE of anything. 

The firing-pin isn't what propels the projectile at 3000fps.

Well, I think an ancillary part to the issue of dictators is that religious freedom/diversity is often times better under dictator rule...  if we could just get them to shut the fuck up about ending the dollar oil peg and get them to continue sending us cheap oil for freshly devalued dollars, then all would be well.

phew!   thankfully amrka has no leanings in that direction. . .

no history of "manifest destiny" nor murder of indigenous peoples in the name of ". . ."  because they're obviously heathens, they aren't in multiple layers of clothing to hide their shameful bodies!  and they're lazy, they only work a few hours a day tilling their soil & plants!  we can take their land 'n' stuffs, they're not real humans!  they don't look anything like our god!!

all in the name of whatever god is handy. . .

Bullshit.  You obviously do not hate dictators.

"However, only dictators seem to keep any form of peace in these countries."

See?  Necessary evil, right?  By the way, this is also bullshit.  Way to allow your brain to be manipulated in precisely the form they intend.  Think, man!  Think!  Your brain is your only potential source of personal sovereignty.  You have to actually do the work to ensure that potential becomes kinetic.  There are catalysts posted all over this site.  Educate yourself dude.  I'll start you off with Iran:

Just a small sampling of the extraordinary quantity of shit they had to deal with that's still happening right now.  I really, really hope you understand that the ME has been one big, long proxy battle between the Brits (and their US proxy) and the Russians.  Yes, I really did just call the US a proxy state for the Brits.  Hopefully by now you understand who controls our money supply.

Interesting that you mention Mapplethorpe's government funding. Dave McGowan, in Inside the LC, has an interesting bit:

The most likely scenario is that Hodel committed the crime in conjunction with various others in his pedophilic, Luciferian social circle. Man Ray, for example, is a compelling suspect, given that the posing of Ms. Short’s body appears to mimic The Minotaur, one of his better-known photographs. Man Ray, by the way, was something of the Robert Mapplethorpe of his era – the same Robert Mapplethorpe, it should be noted, whom investigative journalist Maury Terry has similarly linked to the Son of Sam case and various other ritualized murders (for more on George Hodel, Man Ray and the Black Dahlia murder, see Black Dahlia Avenger by Steve Hodel [George’s son and a former LAPD homicide detective] and Exquisite Corpse by Mark Nelson and Sarah Hudson Bayliss).
