From the New York Times:
Israel needs to protect its borders by whatever means necessary
Isn’t that what Hitler said about Poland and Czechoslovakia? We set the borders here and this is our country and we’re going to do whatever we have to do.
No country has the right to exist asshole. People have a right to exist and that includes Palestinians as well as Israelis, despite what Israel and Co. would have you think.
Guarding the border was more important than avoiding killing, and guarding the border is what Israel did successfully.
Spare us the bullshit. It seems the Israeli propaganda machine is out in full strength after killing 60 and wounding over 2,000.
If those damned Palestinians would just get in line and obey this occupation there wouldn’t be any further killing.
How dare they demand human rights, the right to exist or the right to fight back?
From the Daily Beast here:
The divide between the Democratic base—which is increasingly progressive—and establishment Democrats was on display again this week. We saw it after at least 60 Palestinians were killed, including women and children, and reportedly 2,700 were injured by the Israeli military during protests in Gaza on Monday. Despite this incident marking the biggest loss of life since the 2014 Gaza war, most leading Democrats were silent.
Ahem, lining up right behind Trump and Pence and the Pentagon to put their quiet stamp of approval on the decades long occupation.
From the Guardian:
Syrian refugees don’t ‘want to go to US’, envoy says in defense of Trump ban
Somebody finally pointed out the irony of Trump’s missile chucking into Syria.
He could give a flying fuck about Syrian people, or any non-white people for that matter. He’s let in 11 Syrian refugees thus far this year.
Who’s the animal Donald?
From the Intercept:
Their silence is deafening — and telling. Palestinians, it seems, have been so dehumanized that they don’t deserve a humanitarian intervention; their blood is cheap, their plight is unimportant, and, perhaps above all else, their killers are our friends.
How dare Palestinians fight to have a homeland?
How dare they stand up to Israel?
There’s always some reason why the rights of Palestinians can’t be considered equal to the rights of other human beings, most notably Israeli citizens.
And this is the essence of dehumanization — you deserve what you’re getting which is nothing.
From NBC News here:
Hundreds of parishioners flocked to a Pennsylvania church to exchange or renew wedding vows, while carrying AR-15 rifles. The World Peace Unification Sanctuary in Newfoundland included a blessing for the assault rifle, which it believes symbolizes the “rod of iron” in the book of Revelation.
This is way past silly and into the area of mental illness. Who renews their wedding vows where crowns of semi-automatic weapon bullets.
It’s fucked in the head and that part of Christianity that revolves around fighting for Christ and the Christianity is a bucket of runny shit and should be denounced by decent people.
So all you fake ass Christian humps can go fuck yourself bigly cuz you’re engaged in some high end bullshit word salad/garbage.
From the CNN here:
“(We) finally did away with the individual mandate tax that was established under that wonderful bill called Obamacare,” Hatch said. “Now, if you didn’t catch on, I was being very sarcastic. That was the stupidest, dumbass bill that I’ve ever seen.”
“Some of you may have loved it. If you do, you are one of the stupidest, dumbass people I’ve ever met,” Hatch added. “There are a lot of them up there on Capitol Hill from time to time.”
I do think the individual mandate was a horrible idea. I would prefer universal health care funded by cutting the ridiculously bloated budget of our War Machine.
Orrin Hatch would disagree, I’m quite sure. And he could give a shit about the physical and mental health of ordinary Americans — he could give a flying fuck. And that’s why he is a rank, diseased anus of a man.
