Farage On Greek Chaos: "You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet"

Tyler Durden's picture

Outspoken and oracular MEP Nigel Farage bombards his fellow unelected officials with 'you can't handle the truth' comments as he points out the total contradiction that is the European Parliament's (and 'Puppet Papademos') view of how things are going in their democracy relative to the reality of a TROIKA-ordered coup forced on the man in the street. Greece is being driven further and further into chaos and as he implores his peers: "If they don't get the Drachma back, you will be responsible for something truly truly horrible!".

Speech on the Floor of the United States Senate

"...

Then, Senators, we recur to the compact which binds us together; we recur to the principles upon which our Government was founded; and when you deny them, and when you deny us the right to withdraw from a Government which thus perverted threatens to be destructive of our rights, we but tread in the path of our fathers when we proclaim our independence, and take the hazard. This is done, not in hostility to others; not to injure any section of the country, not even for our own pecuniary benefit, but from the high and solemn motive of defending and protecting the rights we inherited, and which it is our duty to transmit unshorn to our children.

No the real show will be here in the good ole USA.  $10/gal. milk and gasoline should do the trick, but it won't happen till we lose reserve currency status.  In the meantime, printing our problems away is successfully kicking the can down the road.  Do your think the PIIGS would have any of these problems (or riots), if they had a Euro printing press?

You mean Nigel 'martial law' Farage?

Of course the Greeks are being deliberately screwed & so protest. The riots in the UK on the other hand are the nefarious work of criminals, juvenile delinquents & other assorted scum who deserve to feel the iron fist of the state.

The Shocking Jewish Role in Slavery Part I: What Jewish Historians Say

huh?  You mean the book that paints them out as a victim except when GOD tells them to commit genocide?  LOL.

Jews have been neck-deep in every vice trade since the dawn of time.  They are not a reviled people for nothing. 

During the egyptian famine, they watched out for each other and lent at interest to the egyptians and ended up owning most of the country.  Then the egyptians rose up and put down the foreign nomad war tribe clan.

Nobody ever wonders how they went from ruling class to slave class?

farrakhan is all over jewish involvement in the slave trade. 

Breaker's picture

"farrakhan is all over jewish involvement in the slave trade."

Farrakhan is an idiot. There's an inverse relationship between the stuff he is "all over" and stuff that is true. He's probably not always wrong. But his being all over something is a pretty good indicator the subject is nonsense.

Until English and New England Christians made slavery illegal, seized ships carrying slaves, and fought a war about it, pretty much everyone in the world had and traded slaves. Assyrians, Greeks, Romans, Egyptians, Muslims, Christians, Jews, Blacks, Whites, American Indians, Aztecs, Maya, Incas, Spanish, Portugese, English, . . . . and I haven't even hit Asia in the list yet. And, slaves were of all colors, nationalities, religions and hues. It was a rainbow coalition on both the slaver and slave side. It was the norm. The winners got slaves. The losers got to be slaves.

The idea that slavery is not good is a very modern idea, with it's strongest roots in the English (later American) Puritans. That idea coincided with the era in which a disproportionate number of slaves in the Western world were black. That coincidence distorts the modern narrative on the subject into the inevitable and by now boring discussion of race.

Slavery is the historic norm. We live in a short-lived era where slavery is mostly gone except in Africa, Islamic countries, and parts of Asia. Blaming one group is pretty much a mugs game of finger pointing when the finger should be pointing back at yourself. Blame sinful human nature if you have to blame anyone and be thankful you live in a time when it is unlikely you will be taken slave.

Beard of Zeus's picture

That was awesome. Well said.

The existence of slavery then and now doesn't bother me.

People use the issue to make moral gestures to make themselves look better.

Denouncing slavery is a form of moral grandstanding and competitive altruism.

White people in particular are very good at this.

By Jove, you've got it. All truth claims are disguised assertions of power. My slave just brought me a second gin and tonic. He's happy to have food and shelter after MF Global blew up his ranch. Yankees go home.

ChrisFromMorningside's picture

I denounce slavery and it's not because of moral grandstanding or competitive altruism. Quite simply, I don't want to be a slave and I'd prefer to leave my children a society where the chance that they could ever be enslaved is as close to zero as possible. Slavery is a flawed economic system. Free labor and "Free Soil" is what made this country great (for a time, anyway ... it seems like many want to drag us back to slavery via debt and cultural brainwashing).

With that being said, the poster above is right that slavery is/was commonplace around the world and the Anglo-African slave economy of the U.S. was but one (relatively minor, in the grand historical view) instance.

If other societies want to practice slavery, I won't crusade against them. However, said societies should stay the fuck away and not try to bring that back to U.S. shores.

@Breaker

Minister Farrakhan and the NOI have simply revealed the truth about Jewish involvment in the slave trade.

If you read volume 2 of the 'Secret Releationship Between Blacks and Jews' you'll discover Jewish rabbi's, scholars and respected Jewish sources clearly documented their financing and control of slavery America, the Caribbean and Brazil.  The Minister didn't write their history, they wrote it. It's time America learned the truth.

Breaker's picture

I'm sure this was covered in the Protocols of the Elders of Zion also. I cannot imagine anyone being obsessive enough to devote TWO written volumes to the Secret Relationship between Blacks and Jews. I have no doubt that there were Jews involved in the slave trade. Duh. Every group has had its slavers, including blacks and Muslims. Beyond the "duh," what is Farrakhan's point? That Iran should nuke Israel? That we should all go kill Jews? That people should all give Louis Farrakhan a lot of money and power because, unlike Jews, his ancestors were never involved in slavery? Whoops! I suspect Door No. 3--money and power. But maybe he's just insane.

Random_Robert's picture

The only people that could/would be "taken" slave are those who are so weak that they would choose to serve others (involuntarily) rather than fight to maintain their personal right to their own destiny.

Life. liberty, pursuit of happiness... does ANY of this sink in?

Patrick Henry (the real person), and Kunta Kinte (the fictional character in Roots) possesed characters that were both cut from the same cloth- ie: they were not PUSSIES.

Most of the rest of humanity?  Pussies, every last one. 

"If I don't change my name and serve you, you will kill me...? Oh dear, What's my new name, again?"

Liberty is about nothing but the personal choices we would make given particular sets of circumstances.

Compelling someone to do something involuntarily (ie: against their will) is morally inferior behavior- that is why a society based on personal freedoms can not simultaneously condemn slavery, and collect mandatory taxes from its population.

Are British Butlers slaves? No? Why not? Do they not serve others? Do they not put up with the inane crap of a bunch of Burgoisie swine?

Yes, but they do so VOLUNTARILY.

I had a history teacher in 8th grade who was a retired Army Colonel.  On the last day of class he stood up and addressed us very formally.  He said, "If you remember anything, remember this:  The Civil War was NOT fought to free the slaves."  Also, "There is a distinct difference between FREEDOM TO and FREEDOM FROM."

bpom's picture

There were two apparent causes to the war. One was Slavery and the other was State Rights. However, if Slavery were out of the way, there would be no trouble from State Rights. The war, then, was about Slavery, and nothing else.

trav7777's picture

my communist teacher in HS made a persuasive case that the war, like all the rest, was about ECONOMICS.

Take a look at protective tariff regimes and the structural differences in the economies if you want to know what wars are really fought over.

Slavery was a nice mythic narrative like Jessica Lynch or "Let's Roll"

In reality, the industrializing north enacted tariffs to manufactured goods via their majority in Congress, which were promptly retaliated against by the European manufacturing nations, greatly injuring the South, which was a commodities exporter.

The secession was business.  Nobody REAL cared about slavery.  They cared so much they sent the Irish to slaughter over all this.

BliptoP3's picture

yes for many people, the North was afraid the south would use slaves in the factory system - this would have ruined their economies.  The laws passed to keep industrialization out of the south were becoming unteneble - something had to give.

 

I have ancestors who were quakers though, for them the issue was completely about slavery; but seeing as they were quakers, they would never go to war to achieve that ends.

IN THE BOOK "A DIARY FROM DIXIE" MARY BOYKIN CHESTNUT.  FARM PRODUCTION USING SLAVE LABOR WAS NOT ECONOMICALLY VIABLE.  OVERSEER'S COULD NOT BE HIRED EVEN OFFERING 100% OF THE PROFITS.  i'm sure using extreme techniques as used in the tropics would have increased production, but unlike "uncle tom's cabin" harriet beecher stowe. southern people were very religious and very seldom used vicious methods.

 

very interesting quote by someone that northern interest were worried that slaves would be used in manufacturing.  this could be true but i feel the largest problem was the northern abolitionist wanted to "free the slaves", and that is where their plan ended.

 

due to haiti, and numerous slave uprisings the southern people were petrified to free the slaves without some workable plan for resettling them.  abraham lincoln bound the civil war to slavery with the emancipation proclamation after antietam the first major not-a-loss of the potomac army, this to elicit more support from the rabid abolitionist,  george mcclellan was appalled as were the rank and file of the union army

This is correct.

Lincoln said it was not about slavery on many occasions. Again, if you pull up the "Emancipation Proclamation" you can clearly read that it was a purely political document. The power to free or bind slaves is by force...brute force. Wherever the Union army was in control (the force) the slaves were left just as they were, that is slaves. Wherever the Union army was not, this document presumed to free them. But there was no force to free them in those places.

It was (the document) meant for European consumption. It was a political contrivance.

As an aside and for full disclosure, my great grandfather was in Virginia serving under AP Hill at the end of it. The point being, the north was using "immigrants" (Germans & Irish primarily) on the front line.

The yankees felt them more expendable than themselves.

They were fed into the meat grinder of frontal assaults on entrenched and well covered positions. My ancestors company was capturing men who couldn't speak English but through translators found these men were promised US citizenship if they joined the Union army and carried a gun against the south.

All they had to do was survive.

Pretty callous on their part by todays standards...or not. They (yankees) didn't call US Grant "Butcher Grant" for no reason ;-)

i would agree INITIALLY the "War between the States" wasn't about slavery--but if you haven't read the Gettysburg Address then you simply have no clue about the war became ALL about slavery...and of course..."slavery was ended" i might add. (Imagine a politician NOT engaging in a bait and switch in this day and age.) And this was Lincolns genius...he literally called it "a NEW BIRTH OF FREEDOM." I would agree of course "it has been far from realized in our current condition." And needless to say "there are no Lincolns on the horizon" either. I can think of some quality places to start however. For example turning all Class A truck drivers, airline pilots and ship Captains into Federal employees.

nmewn's picture

The issue of what to do about the slave economy imported with the people who came here was...in fact...put on the back burner at our conception as a nation.

We simply could not afford to not come together over that issue with Britain still pissed. And they did invade us after that...but I digress.

The cause of the war was economic, not slavery, as you correctly say.

The document itself (the EP) is quite plain, if you read it with an open mind you will see it is a political fraud meant for Europe, not for slaves.

All the high sounding words mean absolutely nothing when you've arrested writers & editors of newspapers in NY & Maryland (freedom of speech & the press) and you've suspended habeas corpus defined in our Constitution and in our common law for anyone who disagrees with you AND you are threatening to arrest the head of the Supreme Court...it is not advocating "freedom" for anyone in any lawful manner.

Again, this conception (of us) was voluntary at the outset. This carries weight of equal measure.

The force of the scale much came later, with Lincoln & the war, which was/is the problem. You can't have a meaningful forced marriage, it has to be voluntary.

I would remind you where the term greenback came from...it was under his tyranny and alliance with the monetary interests. And I am under no illusion that if he had nukes he would have used them on his "brothers" both white, red, black and yellow.

BliptoP3's picture

Lincoln ran on a pro-slavery platform.  The man wanted to preserve the Union; by whatever means necessary.
