UPDATE: G20 Toronto Police Riot!!! Police Get New Toys & Lots of Over-time & Welcome to the New Improved Neocon Canadian Police State

UPDATE: 4:41 PM June 30

Tomorrow is Canada Day will the police arrest anyone who sings O'Canada as they did during the G20 Summit in T.O.

Welcome to the New Improved Neocon Canada . Where all of PM Harper's Dreams Come True- Where dissenters are met with violence- The Canadian Way -EH!
Where all of PM Harper's fascist dreams come true.

And this is what the government & its Media echo chamber calls restraint or a measured response WTF!!!
What the supporters of the police state call a measured response is that the police didn't open up on the peaceful crowds with automatic weapons or shot guns and so didn't kill anyone-next time expect a death toll -Just what the conservatives, neo-cons, Canadian Religious Right & Harper & the Middle Class would approve of-just read many of the comments below these videos- the pro-police wanted more blood to be shed -
Meanwhile the G20 leaders ignore the police riot . As long as they & their friends are OK then everything's OKay.

G20 Toronto Police State - Police fire muzzle blast at woman and peaceful protesters

Riot police fired at least three shots of individual applications of tear gas and powder at protestors outside the temporary G20 jail on Eastern Ave. around noon on Sunday, where minutes earlier a peaceful demonstration by the Toronto Community Mobilization Network was broken up when plain-clothes police stormed the crowd to snatch at least two people in targeted arrests. After the arrests occurred, police ordered the crowd to move north, first surging forward with batons and then firing these "muzzle blasts." One man and one woman appeared to be injured after the blasts. (Brendan Kennedy, June 27, 2010)

Where only the right wing are permitted to peacefully protest ie they hold protests such as Pro-Life, Anti-Gay, Pro-War, Pro-Corporations , Pro-BP, anti-welfare,anti-Muslim etc. without being attacked by police.

Toronto Police ,CSIS, RCMP using a small group of violent protesters to beat the shit out of peaceful protesters.

In fact it seems that the so-called violent "Black Block" had been infiltrated weeks or months previous to G20-so police knew what their tactics or plans were & either just went along for the ride or encouraged the "Black Block" to carry out their violent activities.

If this had happened in China, or Iran the mainstream press would be lamenting & accusing those countries of crushing any sort of dissent.

Unfortunately for those of us who believe in equality and justice for all are seen as crazy idealist at the least or as evil terrorists who must be silenced.
Note for instance what happened recently to activists who took part in the Free Gaza Flotilla -Israeli fully armed Commandos acting like thugs and pirates boarded ships unlawfully in International Waters and was praised by Canada, the USA & Great Britain.

G20 Toronto Black Block get green light to rampage?
CanadianNanaimo-July 28, 2010
A photo Journalist describes his experience following the black block as they rampage through the streets of Toronto during the G20 Summit.

20,000 police and security officials and a $1 billion security budget were not enough to stop 75-100 black block anarchists from smashing windows and torching police cars during a 1.5 hour rampage. The Black Block were able to rampage through the street for 24 blocks until they reached the 'official protest zone' where they quickly changed clothes dispersed through the crowd of peaceful protesters and then left the site.

The police were fully aware of the rampage and watched the black block from a distance at a number of locations. It wasn't until they had dispersed into a crowd of peaceful protesters who thought that they were in a sanctioned area that the police took action beating innocent people with batons and spraying them with pepper spray.

Why was this allowed to happen? Police abandoned police cars at Bay and King when they didn't need to, why? Was this allowed to happen so the Harper government could justify an outrageous security bill when there was no credible terrorist threat (according to CSIS)? Who led this group of vandals? Were they infiltrated by government paid provocateurs as was the case in Montebello where police with masks and rocks attacked their own riot squad?

1 billion dollar price tag outrageous
Seattle Summit one year ago cost 100 Million dollars

Violent Protest or Agent Provocateurs? Toronto G8-G20

Thousands of people took to the streets in Toronto, Canada to demonstrate against the twin G8 and G20 summits. Violent protesters caused riots according to the police, but one has to question from where the violence came from.

Agent provocateurs have been used many times in the past to incite violence amongst peaceful protesters, so that the police can move in arrest people and break up the protests even in free speech zones. The main stream media is also quick to report on the violence discrediting the 10s of thousands who are there without violence.

Police and security services have infiltrated black blocs with agents provocateurs. Allegations first surfaced after several demonstrations. At the 2001 G8 summit in Genoa, amongst the many complaints about the police there was mention of video footage in which "men in black were seen getting out of police vans near protest marches".

In August 2007, Quebec police admitted that "their officers disguised themselves as demonstrators." However, they were easily recognized by the genuine protesters as police, as they were still wearing their police-issue footwear.

Given the powers the police have under this Public Property Security law at any time it can be instituted without the legislature or parliament's assent and they do not need to announce publicly that such a law is in effect-most the protesters and the people of Toronto did not know that such a draconian law was in effect.
So they did not know that wherever they were might be a no-go zone and this designation might change at any moment .

Are these police officers responding because they are physical jeopardy are the protesters in this clip destroying public property , they are supposedly in a Free-Speech Zone but they don't know the police can arbitrarily decide if a place is a free speech zone or not and they have the right to arrest people on any sort of pretext they can cook up-so next time will the police shoot to kill ???

'I have lived in toronto for 32 years. have never seen a day like this' Journalist Steve Paikin's twitter account of protest By rabble staff ,, June 27, 2010

Journalist Steve Paikin, calling it an awful night for democracy, witnessed quite a bit in yesterday's demonstration(s), including being "escorted" away by police, and you can read his series of tweets right here.

Some highlights:

i have lived in toronto for 32 years. have never seen a day like this. shame on the vandals.

so the police just started arresting people. i stress, this was a peaceful, middle class, diverse crowd. no anarchists

the demonstration on the esplanade was peaceful. it was like an old sit in. no one was aggressive. and yet riot squad officers moved in.

i saw police brutality tonight. it was unnecessary. they asked me to leave the site or they would arrest me. i told them i was dong my job.

ppl standing around with hands in air. this was peaceful. it won't be now. unprovoked attack by police

Accusations of police ignored the basic rights of the 900 G20 detainees

Conditions for detainees at 629 Eastern Avenue are illegal, immoral and dangerous By Justin Giovannetti and Lex Gill June 28, 2010

Editor's note: Roughly 900 people have now been arrested, according to police, after a weekend of mayhem on the streets of Toronto during the G20 Summit. This is now the largest-ever mass arrest in Canadian history. No word on how many charges have been laid. Compare it to this: 497 people were arrested during the ‘October Crisis and the war measures act' in 1970, which came before Canada had a Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

Complaints and charges against the police include:

People were held for up to 35 hours with a single meal
Inadequate water, as little as an ounce every 12 hours
Facilities over-capacity
Major delays in processing
Inconsistent charges
People put in solitary confinement
No pillows or mattresses to sleep
Unsanitary and unsafe living conditions
Police intimidation of released detainees
Non-stop light exposure/loss of natural light rhythm/sensory deprivation
Exposure to extreme cold
Sexual harassment of women and Queer people
Youth as young as 15 in adult cells
Denial of legal counsel
No phone call
Belongings stolen/damaged
Threats of assault/harassment
Obviously illegal civilian arrest
No access to medication or medical treatment

UPDATE: G20 Toronto & Police Over-reaction & Glenn Beck Hijacking MLK's "I have A Dream " & Beck Hero Ezra Benson Racist John Bircher "

UPDATE: 1:39 PM, June 28, 2010

First a peek at Toronto Police's Draconian ACTION

Freedom Of The Press in Canada -Not so much especially in Toronto
So Martin Luther King jr. 's talk about freedom of Assembly, freedom of the Press still a burning issues as Uberconservatives back draconian Police Actions

Real News journalist attacked at G20

TRNN's Jesse Freeston, one of the members of media attacked or arrested at G20-June 27, 2010

Glenn Beck trying to hijack Martin Luther King's Civil Rights Movement to back his own Take Back America style Rally.
Beck spews fear, hatred, bigotry insane conspiratorial theories about liberals & Progressives -if anything MLK could be called a liberal and a progressive and a champion of equality and justice for all.
Whereas Beck believes that the wealthy elite or Corporate elite CEOs etc. must be supported unconditionally . Taxing the rich at all is UnAmerican and part of a communist plot now led by an African-American president.
He and his ilk for instance defend BP oil against President Obama claiming BP is the real victim not the people in the Gulf or the sea shores or the ocean or the American people.Daring to tax or regulate big Business is seen as a Communist Plot to destroy traditional America.

Martin Luther King Jr - I Have a Dream

1968 - Martin Luther King's Prophetic Last speech - Remember

According to conservatives such as Glenn Beck, Fox News , Sean Hannity , Limbaugh , Coulter, Newt Gingrich et al don't know what all the fuss was about or why there was even a need for the Civil Rights Movement because in their distorted revisionist history African-American's were never oppressed or terrorized by the KKK , the White Citizens Groups and the state or federal government.
They claim Black Americans and other minorities have exaggerated their victimization.
These Uber-Conservatives characterize all such protest movements such as the Anti-Vietnam War movement which Martin Luther king became a part of or the Feminist movement, or the anti-poverty Movement or Gay Rights movement or Native rights movement as being unnecessary because there was in their view no real oppression or denial of civil liberties to these minority groups.

Facts and real history hold no sway or power over the Uber- Conservative mindset.

Another hero of Glenn Beck bites the dust-this one Ezra Benson outed as a racist and supporter of the extremist organization John Birch Society and a pro-segregationist Mormon.
Beck is also another American Conservative trying to redeem the notorious Joseph McCarthy as an American hero .
History has shown McCarthy was on a witch hunt most of the people he accused were not Soviet spies or Communist Infiltrators. McCarthy has been characterized as a self-serving bully and egomaniac who enjoyed notoriety more than truth or justice .
Glenn Beck is organizing a march by his followers on the Lincoln Memorial supposedly in part to celebrate Martin Luther King's notable speech" I Have A Dream" given at The Lincoln Memorial August 28.
as one of Beck's heroes earlier was shown to have direct connections with the Nazis in Germany in the 1930s & 40s.

Via Media Matters
Beck: "I am not hijacking" MLK "legacy in any way, shape, or form"
He adds: "On 8-28, we plan to salute Dr. King and the civil rights movement"
June 23, 2010

One wonders if Beck's rally should just be ignored or should should he be criticized for holding a rally on that day.
Beck's earlier 9/12 rally on Washington Beck claimed it as an overwhelming success as he claims there were around a million people in attendance but others including independent non-aligned officials put the tally at some 75,000 to 100,000 marchers.
So even if the rally is filmed by various independent sources Glenn Beck will make up his own numbers of those attending
What if the KKK were to march to the Lincoln Memorial claiming they were celebrating the life and works MLK-what would average American's think or do -would they question it at all?

Top U.S. civil rights leaders accuse Beck of hijacking Dr. King's legacy, plan 8/28 counter-rally via media matters by Will Bunch via Media Matters , June 22, 2010

Some of the nation's top civil rights leaders are angrily accusing right-wing media star Glenn Beck of "hijacking" the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream" speech by planning to rally his conservative forces at the same Lincoln Memorial site on the anniversary date of Aug. 28 -- and so they are planning a counter-rally and march of their own.

"Beck is hijacking the imagery and symbolism of August 28 and the Lincoln Memorial to promote an agenda of intolerance," said Marc H. Morial, the former New Orleans mayor who is now president and CEO of the National Urban League, one of the counter-rally organizers, said earlier tonight in a telephone interview.

The Morial-led Urban League is teaming with well-known activists such as the Rev. Al Sharpton and his National Action Network in planning a "mass rally" and march that will begin at a high school in Northeast Washington. Morial said that one of King's surviving children, Martin Luther King III, is also on board.Less than three miles away, the Fox News Channel host and former half-term Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin are headlining a heavily promoted rally called "Restoring Honor."
The Religious Right in America in the late 1970s were galvanized in their fight against the US government & secularism not over abortion or gay rights but in large part due to their fears in the 1970s that they would lose their tax exempt status on their schools and universities and lose government grants they received if they did not integrate. Falwell and others disparage the Civil Rights movement and they claimed that segregation was ordained by God.
Glenn Beck Racism Mormonism Civil-rights movement

Beck, A Self-Proclaimed Heir To Civil Rights Movement, Promotes Quotes By Anti-Civil Rights Ezra Taft Benson by matt Corley Think Progress June 25, 2010

On his radio and TV show, Glenn Beck regularly pays tribute to the civil rights movement, claiming that one of his goals is to “reclaim the civil rights movement” and that his followers are “the inheritors and the protectors of the civil rights movement.” He’s drawing heavy criticism from top civil rights leaders now, who say that he is “hijacking the imagery and symbolism” of Dr. Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” speech by planning a rally at the Lincoln Memorial on the speech’s anniversary.

Beck denies the claim and says he plans to “salute Dr. King and the civil rights movement” at the rally. But Beck seriously hurt his civil rights credibility on his Fox News show yesterday when he used a quote from a 1966 speech by former Eisenhower Secretary of Agriculture Ezra Taft Benson to justify his claims that communists are infesting America...

...Beck’s decision to feature Benson on his show was a revealing one. As Beck knew quite well, Benson was not just a member of Eisenhower’s cabinet. He was a notoriously illiberal Mormon Church president who helped pioneer Mormonism’s apocalyptic hard-right strain, which Beck latched on to and appropriated following his conversion. Had Beck allowed the tape of Benson’s lecture to continue, it is possible that listeners would have heard Benson ask, “When are we going to wake up? What do you know about the dangerous civil rights agitation in Mississippi?” Or they might have heard the sound of Benson’s voice railing against “traitors within the church” who criticized the mixing of religion and extreme right-wing politics.

Beck then went on to favorably cite disgraced Sen. Joseph McCarthy and his claim to have in his “possession the names of 57 communists who are in the State Department.” Watch it:

He and Beck do sound alike in their fear mongering and hate mongering and their somewhat racist & bigoted world view .
Both see commies everywhere . Both believe that the Communist Conspiracy has been working to undermine American government and American culture and society for at least the last 80 years or longer.
The conspiracy they envision at times sounds a lot like the one conjured up by anti-Semites which has in their view existed for at least a couple of centuries.
Accordingly they believe progressives and various Presidents of the United States and others in the American government have been working diligently and patiently behind the scenes.

John Birch Society exposed! Opposed Desegregation

Sunday Sermon: Religious Right Lou Engle Rod Parsley Christians Must Enforce The Law Of God On All Mankind

Their version is Love thy neighbor if they are Christians .

I don't remember Jesus saying anything of the sort?
Instead didn't he defend Mary Magdelin who was a prostitute?

Kill those who are sexually immoral!

Lou Engle is becoming one of the most prominent preachers of the Religious Right.
Others include James Kennedy, Ron Luce, Michelle Bachmann, Newt Gingrich who are spreading a radical form of Christianity with the intention of making America into a Theocratic State. Peter C. Wagner and others preach that Christians must become the dominant voice in all spheres of American life- they refer to these as the Seven Mountains,- Government,Judiciary, Education , Media, Arts & Culture , the Family & Business. This notion of taking over the spheres of influence can be traced back to the Theologian/philosopher community organizer Francis A. Schaeffer and to the even more sinister Reconstructionist Rousas Rushdonny and see Chalcedon Website

Rod Parsley and Lou Engle: Together At Last by Kyle Rightwing Via People For The American Way on June 23, 2010

First a word from Rod Parsley on America following Europe's slide into the darkness of Post-Modernism, Post -Christian Paganism.
He says there is no Middle Way, no room for compromise or negotiation True Christians have to put on their Holy Armor to fight against all those who do not accept Jesus . Their fight he say is to enforce the word of God on all humankind.

They can't wait for the Apocalypse and the deaths of Billions of Non-believers and then they talk about God Is Love
so he told these guys to judge all others and to persecute those they hate and revile whom they refer to as Secular Humanists. They reject empathy, sympathy or tolerance preferring to demonize those who do not agree with their agenda of creating a theocratic state .

AFA Targets 10 Year Old Parade Marshall, Fox Quotes Bryan Fischer by Kyle via Right Wing Watch at People For the American Way June 24, 2010

Last year, we wrote about Will Phillips, a 10 year old boy in Arkansas who was refusing to stand and recite the Pledge of Allegiance until gays can get married and achieve full equality.

Phillips has been tapped to serve as Grand Marshall of the Northwest Arkansas Pride Parade in Fayetteville on Saturday and the American Family Association is freaking out, sending out an action alert targeting the mayor and calling it a "form of child abuse":

I am shocked to learn that the city of Fayetteville is issuing a proclamation in support of the homosexual activist group, Northwest Arkansas Pride.

It’s offensive enough to sensibilities that they are going to parade their deviant lifestyle on the streets of the city.

It’s even more abhorrent that the city is supporting it, knowing very well that the organizers of this event are exploiting children to push their radical sexualizing event.

I implore you to withdraw the proclamation and focus on issues that promote a healthy and safe lifestyle, rather than one that is risky and dangerous.


AFA President Tim Wildmon says, “It’s shameful that adults would abuse a brain-washed child in this way. He’s obviously just parroting the nonsense he’s been told by manipulative adults. For gay activists to trot out this child and make him the poster child for promoting unnatural sexual expression is a form of child abuse."

So of course Fox News picked up the story and just take one guess who they quoted:

“We believe that it goes beyond the pale for adults to exploit a 10-year-old child for dark political purposes,” said Bryan Fischer, the director of issue analysis at AFA. “He is too young to understand. There is nothing about homosexual conduct to be proud of and much to be ashamed of.”

The AFA, according to Fischer, has sent an “action alert” to its members in Arkansas, and he says they have deluged the mayor’s and city council’s office with e-mails “asking him to stop this charade.” Though there are no plans to actively protest at the parade, Fischer said, “as of noon Thursday our records show that the mayor and city council had received 12,300 e-mails asking them to stop the parade.”

But in good news, Fayetteville's Mayor is refusing to bow to the AFA's pressure and Saturday’s parade will go on as scheduled.

and some fear mongering over Kagan Confirmation will lead to a rise in anti-Semitism in America???

Kagan's Confirmation Represents an "Existential Threat" To Jews In America by Kyle RightWingWatch Via People For the American Way June 24, 2010 -

Normally, when we post a release from Rabbi Yehuda Levin it is about how allowing gays to serve in the military will cause natural disasters or cause God to repeal his "Divine Grace from our military's struggles" which will thus make us lose wars.

But in an apparent effort not to be typecast as merely an anti-gay loon, Levin is branching out, today releasing a statement opposing the confirmation of Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court on the grounds that she is Jewish and that she will issue "extremist decisions" from the bench - the combination of the two, you see, will inevitably cause a "backlash" of anti-Semitic violence to sweep the nation, representing an "existential threat" to Jews in America:

It is clear from Ms. Kagan's record on issues such as abortion-on-demand, Partial-Birth-Abortion, the radical homosexual and lesbian agenda, the "supremacy" of the anti-family panoply over religious liberties of Biblical adherents, et. al., that she will function as a flame-throwing radical, hastening society's already steep decline into Sodom and Gommorah.

USA Homegrown Terrorists & Honor Killings???

Note if a Muslim American had tried to have his wife murdered Robert Spencer Pam Gellar, Glenn Beck , Limbaugh & other anti-Islam bigots would have had this as a lead story for days if not weeks-but since the guy is Christian & white these blowhards are not interested. In the same way they are not concerned about Mosques being attacked or attacks by American terrorists on integrated or African-American churches.

Racists See ‘Set-Up’ in Arrest of Idaho Lawyer by Larry Keller Via Hatewatch & Southern Poverty Law Center June 22, 2010

Onetime Aryan Nations attorney Edgar J. Steele was denied bail today in a case that has many of his fellow bigots suggesting in postings to white nationalist websites that the Idaho attorney must be an innocent victim of a conspiracy because of his racist views — not a man who plotted to have his wife and mother-in-law killed.

Steele was arrested June 11 and charged with use of interstate commerce in the commission of murder for hire. Federal authorities contend that Steele, 64, paid a man he knew to make it appear that his wife, Cyndi, and her mother died in a car accident. Steele hoped to collect on an insurance policy, an FBI informant said.

Four days after Steele’s arrest, auto shop workers discovered a pipe bomb attached to the underside of a sport utility vehicle driven by Cyndi Steele. Larry A. Fairfax, who like Steele lives in Slagle, Idaho, was charged with two felonies in connection with the pipe bomb and also is being held without bond. Fairfax — who was the FBI’s informant — says he rigged the device so that it wouldn’t explode. Prosecutors maintain that Fairfax didn’t disclose everything he knew about the alleged plot.

Raining Oil In Louisiana? (VIDEO) via Huffpost & Oil Spill God's Judgement On USAs iLL-Treatment of Israel???

Raining Oil In Louisiana? (VIDEO) via Huffpost June 23, 2010

This shocking video shows what appears to be the aftermath of oily rain, filmed in River Ridge -- just outside New Orleans. The filmmaker captures the clearly visible sheen in the gathering puddles, and describes the remaining substance as "thick" and "foamy," noting that it not only looks but also smells like the oil they witnessed the day before on Gulf beaches from the spill.

American Christian Zionists connect Obama's treatment of Israel to the BP oil spill. God punishes people of the Gulf for daring to question any action carried out by Israel.

Does this let BP off the hook since it was part of God's Plan?

Oil Cap Removed: Oil Spill Now Gushing Unchecked via Huffington Post, june 23, 2010

NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- Tens of thousands of gallons more oil gushed into the Gulf of Mexico on Wednesday after an undersea robot bumped a venting system, forcing BP to remove the cap that had been containing some of the crude.

The setback, yet another in the nine-week effort to stop the gusher, came as thick pools of oil washed up on Pensacola Beach in Florida and the Obama administration tried to figure out how to resurrect a six-month moratorium on deepwater drilling

Gulf Oil Spill: Gulf Methane Levels One Million Times Greater Than Normal Via Huffington Post, june 23, 2010

Texas A&M University oceanography professor John Kessler, just back from a 10-day research expedition near the BP Plc oil spill in the gulf, says methane gas levels in some areas are "astonishingly high."

Kessler's crew took measurements of both surface and deep water within a 5-mile (8 kilometer) radius of BP's broken wellhead.

"There is an incredible amount of methane in there," Kessler told reporters in a telephone briefing.

In some areas, the crew of 12 scientists found concentrations that were 100,000 times higher than normal.

"We saw them approach a million times above background concentrations" in some areas, Kessler said.

The scientists were looking for signs that the methane gas had depleted levels of oxygen dissolved in the water needed to sustain marine life.

"At some locations, we saw depletions of up to 30 percent of oxygen based on its natural concentration in the waters. At other places, we saw no depletion of oxygen in the waters. We need to determine why that is," he told the briefing.

Methane occurs naturally in sea water, but high concentrations can encourage the growth of microbes that gobble up oxygen needed by marine life.

Joe Barton Will Keep Energy Committee Post After Apologizing To GOP Colleagues by nick Wing via Huffington Post, June 23, 2010

Rep. Joe Barton (R-Texas) convened privately with his GOP colleagues Wednesday and apologized for the controversy he created last week by expressing public sympathy for BP during a much-awaited hearing with the oil company's CEO. The apology appears to have done enough to convince his party's leadership to allow Barton to maintain his position as the leading Republican on the House Energy Committee.

According to the Washington Post's Greg Sargent, House Minority Leader John Boehner recently made it official, "telling reporters that Barton will be keeping his committee slot."

Democrats, still intent on hammering the issue until the November elections responded with a release from DNC spokesperson Brandi Hoffine:

Joe Barton can't seem to stop apologizing -- but the only apology that Barton actually owes is the one he has yet to offer. And that's to the residents of the Gulf Coast who've suffered at the hands of the company that Barton has went to great lengths to defend.

and here's an example of the hate speech spewed out on World Net Dailyby Molotov Mitchell. Mitchell like other Islamophobes such as Pam Gellar, Robert Spencer, Fox & GOP goes over the edge because Muslim Americans want to build a Mosque near Ground Zero 9/11. He doesn't mention that it includes a Mosque but its main funtion is that of a community center
It is understandable that some Christian Americans would be upset over this but they go to extremes in their attacks on all Muslims & Islam & the Prophet Muhammad.
These Islamophobes since 9/11 have been upset that Muslim Americans were not all rounded up and put in concentration camps or deported.

When Christian Spain took over Moorish Spain the Muslims were forced to evacuate while the Jews were told to convert or be expelled or killed. It is these conversions of Jews which led to the Spanish Inquisition which was set up to uncover any so-called Conversos who were secretly still performing Jewish rituals and ceremonies etc.
The Christian churches preached a virulent form of anti-Semitism for over a thousand years yet the Anti-Islam spokespersons deny that anti-semitism was not just prevalent among Christians but was in fact embedded in Christianity.

Mitchell sticks to all the talking points which prove Muslims can't be trusted and have their agenda of hegemony.
The fear mongering anti-Islam crowd are guilty of spouting such myths as Europe is already lost to the radical Jihadist Muslims and now only America is left standing.
Many Europeans would be surprised to hear that their nations are under the complete and absolute control of European Muslim Mullahs.

The anti-Islam Christian Zionists appear to have a revisionist view of Western society and Christianity promulgating the Myth that Ilam is a uniquely violent religion while Christianity is a religion of peace and not war.
Either they are not aware of the blood soaked history of Western Civilization or of Christianity and its convert or die mentality or they believe Christian nations have only been involved in defensive wars or that the Christian conquests were justified in spreading Christianity and eliminating non-Christians.
Islamophobes even attempt to argue that Islam was more anti-semitic than Christianity -so they argue that Hitler was a secret Muslim like Barack Obama . Hitler in fact saw himself as fulfilling God's Plan in which Germany would create its 1,000 year Reich. Hitler compared himself to the Jesus who went into the Temple turning over table while going into an insane rage. He like a large portion of Christian Evangelicals today believe not in a "Meek and Mild" Jesus who cares about justice and equality but rather in the Jesus of Billy Sunday a middle class decent white American who is a believer in the necessity of war and of injustice and inequality.

such as what the War against The Indians, native Americans from the arctic circle to the tip of South America conducted by the British, the French, Spanish, Portuguese , Dutch , German etc. They also ravashed Africa, Australia New Zealand , India and Asia all in the name of Greed and Avarice

Show the Muslims we're Americans by Molotov Mitchell commentary at World Net Daily June 23, 2010.

and believing everything the IDF and Netanyahu say publicly Mitchell thinks the Israelis Commandos should have killed more if not all the members of the Gaza Flotilla.
He exaggerates the destruction caused by these makeshift rockets which tend to miss their targets over 90% of the time. Meanwhile the Palestinians and Arab Israelis are terrorized by the IDF & the Fanatical Theocratic Settlers Movement which intends to drive all Palestinians, Arabs, Muslims and other non-Jews including Christians out of the occupied territories and Israel proper.

He doesn't bother to question why the Israeli government decided to board the ships using commandos at night, the soldiers faces covered by balaclavas. Why did the Israeli Commandos fire on the ship and instantly kill and wound a number of passengers before they actually boarded the ship.
The so called Jihadist and would be martyrs if their intention was to fight ,wound and kill Israeli forces surely they could have crafted some more effective weapons than just throwing chairs and dishes at the Commandos.
Unfortunately Mitchell's views are shared by many Americans who believe in defending Israel even if they dropped a few nukes on Europe or Great Britain.
The pro-Israel Christian Evangelicals believe what ever Israel does is part of God's plan so no one but God is therefore able to judge the actions of Israel.

This aint no LoveBoat-Molotov Mitchell

UPDATE: BP Disaster Response PR Ponies and Balloons & BP Is The Victim Says GOP & Its Media Echo Chamber

UPDATE: 12:32 PM, June 23, 2010.

Just to review: A group constituting roughly two-thirds of all Republicans in the House takes the position that President Obama was wrong to demand that BP set aside money to guarantee that those whose livelihoods are being ruined by the oil spill will be compensated.

In other words, it's more important to kneel at the altar of radical conservative ideology than to feel any sense of compassion for one's fellow Americans. This, ladies and gentlemen, is how today's GOP rolls.
Eugene Robinson Via Washington Post

One begins to wonder how gullible are Americans ?
Media Matters -FOX Defends BP & despises "The Small People"

Those who unjustly devour the property of orphans
devour a fire into their bodies
They will soon be enduring a blazing Fire.
(Qur'an 4:10)

Muhammad & the Qur'an judge harshly those who take advantage of those whom BP refer to as "The Small People". The Nations BP defenders say are to bow down and worship the Corporations as Fox News does.

Glenn Beck for instance thinks that the rights of the corporate elite which now includes Beck come before the rights of "The Small People" or the average citizen.
This is also why Beck ,Fox News & the GOP have little interest in the fact that 11 employees were killed but not anyone in their view who is of importance such as a CEO or Manager & other VIPs.

Drinking Glenn Beck's brand of Kool-Aid Beck expects his followers to believe anyone expecting any compensation from BP or who dares question the actions of BP is to be judged UnAmerican /Not a Real American/ a socialist and anti-Christian since Beck's "Jesus" loves the Wealthy and hates the poor.

The BP disaster occurred in large part because there was little or no government oversight of BP's drilling operations.

So there's still a hole in the bottom of the sea and the Gulf Region is devastated.
You might think that maybe when a whole region is being destroyed even conservatives might feel their pain but of course not . Instead They are more concerned about BP and allowing Oil Companies to do as they please. They are against regulations of any kind .
BP created this disaster not Obama or the average citizen.
When profits come before workers safety or the protection of the ocean or the livelihoods of a few million citizens who are of little importance compared to Corporations.
Fox News has been using the spill for their own political agenda from the get go .
So it was a surprise to see someone on Fox ditching the official talking points. Dr. Many who's giving his report on the Gulf Disaster becomes more combative while the anchor keeps trying to get Dr. Many back to the script .

A GOP chorus of Joe Bartons on the BP oil spill by Eugene Robinson Via Washington Post, June 22, 2010

Joe Barton is not alone. The Texas congressman's lavish sympathy for BP -- which he sees not as perpetrator of a preventable disaster but as victim of a White House "shakedown" -- is actually what passes for mainstream opinion among conservative Republicans today.

...But Barton was only echoing a statement that Rep. Tom Price (R-Ga.) had issued a day earlier in the name of the Republican Study Committee, a caucus of House conservatives whose Web site claims 115 members. The statement groused that there is "no legal authority for the president to compel a private company to set up or contribute to an escrow account" and accused the Obama administration of "Chicago-style shakedown politics."

Just to review: A group constituting roughly two-thirds of all Republicans in the House takes the position that President Obama was wrong to demand that BP set aside money to guarantee that those whose livelihoods are being ruined by the oil spill will be compensated. In other words, it's more important to kneel at the altar of radical conservative ideology than to feel any sense of compassion for one's fellow Americans. This, ladies and gentlemen, is how today's GOP rolls.

...Barton's remarks were no spontaneous gaffe. They came in a prepared statement and represent his genuine view of the situation: that the rights of a private company are absolute even when weighed against the clear interests of the public.

While the party leadership has managed to squelch members of Congress who might have been tempted to weigh in on Barton's side, the conservative amen chorus can't help itself.

Rush Limbaugh called the agreement on the $20 billion escrow fund "unconstitutional" and accused the administration of acting like "a branch of organized crime."

Newt Gingrich said the White House was "extorting money from a company."

Stuart Varney of Fox News claimed -- falsely -- that Obama had moved to "seize a private company's assets" and complained that the action was "Hugo Chavez-like."

Weekly Standard Editor Bill Kristol said that "I have no sympathy for BP," but then proceeded to be sympathetic, offering that "it's not helpful for the country, for the economy as a whole, for the president to bully different companies and different industries."

I'd advise these people to get a grip, but they're just saying what they believe. It just happens that what they believe is absurd.

Yes, President Obama used the power of his office to pressure BP to set money aside for compensation. If Republicans believe he shouldn't have, then by all means they should speak up. Come November, the voters will be able to decide who's right.

USA's Homegrown Terrorists & Racist & more on Israel's Commandos Brutal Attack on Gaza Flotilla

As of yesterday, there had been 37 suspicious fires at black churches in the last 18 months, including two in Mississippi late Monday night. During about the same time frame, according to the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF), there have been 23 suspicious fires at predominantly white churches, which far outnumber black churches. Just this week, another white church, in suburban Atlanta, was heavily damaged by fire that investigators are examining for possible arson.

Responding to the wave of church burnings, the House yesterday overwhelmingly approved legislation to make it easier for federal officials to prosecute those involved in church burnings and to make it a federal crime to damage religious property because of its "racial or ethnic character."

At first glance one would assume that this quote was referring to the civil rights 1960s era when the South responded with violence to the Civil Rights Movement
Surprisingly the quote refers to a number of Church burnings in 1996 when Clinton was president. So racism did not end during his two terms in office.
And in fact there have been such racist motivated acts up until the present.

The civilized Israelis whom we are told represent the ideals and values Western Civilization have a policy of shooting unarmed civilians and beating , abusing and torturing prisoners especially those who are Palestinian or Arab.

Israel backed by the Obama administration are still upset that one Israeli soldier is in the hands of Hamas . Yet they do not mention the thousands of Palestinians who are being held as political prisoners in Israel who are abused & terrorized by Israeli guards.

The Americans who also believe that international laws do not apply to them abuse, beat and torture Prisoners.
Due to American exceptionalism, Manifest Destiny & God's Chosen Nation the rest of the world's nations and peoples and religions have no right to question American policies.
Israel has shown itself to have an arrogant delusional view of itself as the Chosen of God or of History.

Springfield, Massachusetts Man Pleads Guilty to Church Arson

WASHINGTON—The Justice Department today announced that Benjamin Haskell, 23, of Springfield, Mass., pleaded guilty to a superseding information charging him with two crimes related to the burning of the Macedonia Church of God in Christ, a predominantly African-American church, in Springfield on the morning after President Barack Obama was elected as the first African-American president of the United States.

The superseding information charged that in the early morning hours of Nov. 5, 2008, within hours of President Obama being elected, Haskell and his co-conspirators agreed to burn, and succeeded in burning, the Macedonia Church of God in Christ’s newly constructed building where religious services were to be held for its predominantly African-American congregation. The building was 75 percent completed at the time of the fire, which destroyed the entire structure leaving only the metal superstructure and a small portion of the front corner intact. Investigators determined the fire to be incendiary in nature and caused by an unknown quantity of gasoline applied to the exterior and interior of the building.

Haskell damaged religious property and obstructed the free exercise of religious because of the race, color, or ethnic characteristics of any individual associated with that religious property. Haskell conspired to injure, oppress, threaten, and intimidate the parishioners of the Macedonia Church of God in Christ in the free exercise or enjoyment of the right to hold and use real property, a right which is secured in the Constitution and laws of the United States.

“The freedom to practice the religion that we choose in a safe environment without being subjected to discrimination or hateful acts is among our nation’s most cherished rights,” said Thomas E. Perez, Assistant Attorney General in charge of the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division. “Anyone who violates that right will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.”

U.S. Attorney Carmen Ortiz of the District of Massachusetts said, “Today's conviction should send a strong message that hate crimes will be vigorously investigated and prosecuted in Massachusetts. When I announced my civil rights initiative earlier this month, I made it clear that the U.S. Attorney’s Office will be reinvigorating it's efforts in this area, and making it one our top priorities.”
Ah the good old days of the 1990s - Racism was alive and well then and with Obama as president the racism continues in the guise of rhetorical flourishes and dog whistle coded words ie socialist , not a real American, Not one of us etc.

In Church Fires, a Pattern but No Conspiracy
By William Booth
Washington Post Staff Writer
Wednesday, June 19, 1996; Page A01

The people burning down black churches in the South are generally white, male and young, usually economically marginalized or poorly educated, frequently drunk or high on drugs, rarely affiliated with hate groups, but often deeply driven by racism, according to investigators and a review of those arrested or convicted in the burnings.

Little evidence has emerged to suggest a national or regional conspiracy, according to investigators. But they point to a climate of underlying racism that encourages the arsonists to strike at African American churches.

Noah Chandler at the Center for Democratic Renewal, a civil rights watchdog group in Atlanta, put it this way: "The conspiracy is racism itself."

At the same time, the burnings of predominantly African American churches occur against what investigators said is a backdrop of widespread arson against houses of religion of all kinds, including white churches, mosques and synagogues.

As of yesterday, there had been 37 suspicious fires at black churches in the last 18 months, including two in Mississippi late Monday night. During about the same time frame, according to the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF), there have been 23 suspicious fires at predominantly white churches, which far outnumber black churches. Just this week, another white church, in suburban Atlanta, was heavily damaged by fire that investigators are examining for possible arson.

Responding to the wave of church burnings, the House yesterday overwhelmingly approved legislation to make it easier for federal officials to prosecute those involved in church burnings and to make it a federal crime to damage religious property because of its "racial or ethnic character." President Clinton, meanwhile, asked Congress to provide an extra $12 million for investigations; a House Appropriations subcommittee indicated it would go along.

Gaza: End of the Siege? by Robert Dreyfuss The Nation Via Common June 22,2010

"This is the beginning of the total collapse of the siege."
So said Hanin Zuabi, an Israeli Arab member of the parliament who was aboard the flotilla that was attacked by Israel on May 31. That judgment may be a bit premature, however, and both Hamas and the Palestinian Authority are being far more cautious in their assessments of the Israeli decision to weaken its blockade of Gaza.

The siege hasn't ended yet, and it's unclear precisely what commodities will be allowed to flow in and out of Gaza. The naval blockade remains, but land crossings are to be reopened, while being carefully controlled by the Israeli armed forces. But Netanyahu himself said that while Israel will prevent "weapons and war-supporting material" from entering Gaza, "All other goods will be allowed into Gaza."

We'll see. There are major questions about how it will work out. Construction materials and equipment, for instance, will be allowed only when tied to projects approved by the Palestinian Authority and carried out under international supervision, i.e., not by Hamas.

Quartet asks Israel to implement easing of Gaza blockade Via M&C,June 21, 2010

New York - The Middle East diplomatic group Monday asked Israel to fully implement its decision to ease the blockade of the Gaza Strip.

A statement issued by the United Nations, the European Union, the United States and Russia - the diplomatic group known as the quartet - called for Israel to elaborate on the details of its new policy, which was announced last week after Israel was criticized for its military intervention to stop a humanitarian flotilla bound for Gaza on May 31. Nine people were killed in the incident.

'Full and effective implementation will comprise a significant shift in strategy towards meeting the needs of Gaza's population for humanitarian and commercials goods,' the statement said.

Israeli Defence Minister Ehud Barack, who met with UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon at UN headquarters, told reporters that crossings into Gaza were being opened to let goods enter. But Barack said commodities like cement and iron remain banned.

'The decision by the Israeli cabinet is being implemented to ease the inflow of goods as long as they are for humanitarian needs and not war materials,' Barack said.

He said the decision to ban cement and iron is applied also to the West Bank in an agreement with the Palestinian Authority. Israel claims cement and iron can be used for defence purposes. The Palestinians in Gaza said they need those items to rebuild destroyed buildings and the infrastructure.

The quartet's statement said other needs include civilian reconstruction and infrastructure, economic activities and Israel's security. The statement asked Israel to carry out its decision 'as quickly as possible.'

The quartet said it will closely monitor the easing of the blockade 'in all its aspects.' Israel closed crossings into Gaza and mounted a sea blockade three years ago after militant Hamas won election to rule Gaza and its 1.5 million inhabitants.

(The quartet in effect denied the legitimacy of the Gaza Flotilla as a means of resistance to Israel & its illegal and inhumane blockade of Gaza- So the Palestinians get to eat or eat a little better because Israel decides from on high being God's chosen nation and whereas they characterize Palestinians as barbaric , blood thirsty fanatics who must be quarantened as the South African Apartheid regime did to Black South Africans as if the Afrakaners treated Black South Africans justly and fairly which would be utter nonsense.)

In a reference to the flotilla incident, the quartet called on organizations that want to deliver goods to Gaza to do so 'through established channels so that their cargo can be inspected and transferred via land crossings into Gaza.'

'The quartet emphasizes that there is no need for unnecessary confrontations and calls on all parties to act responsibly in meeting the needs of the people of Gaza,' the statement said.

The quartet, which has tried to maintain a balance in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, also called for the release of Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit, who was captured by Hamas militants four years ago on Saturday.

The quartet 'condemns' Hamas' violations of international obligations to let the International Committee of the Red Cross visit Shalit. It called for Hamas to allow such a visit.

Christian Evangelicals' Love of Israel Tainted By Endtimes Scenario : Jews Either Convert To Christianity Or Are Tossed Into Hell

Israel refuses to return all the equipment and personal items such as lap tops, cell phones, credit cards , passports etc. taken from the Gaza Flotilla activists.

IDF Piracy Looting & kidnapping

June 15, 2010 — They have also been using passengers credit cards to buy alcohol in Tel-Aviv.
An investigation by Press TV has revealed that up to 3.5 million dollars worth of money, electrical equipment and other items may have been stolen by the Israeli military from the Gaza flotilla survivors. Hundreds of survivors have reported missing cash, laptops, phones and clothes since they were released from Israel last week. Press TV's Lauren Booth reports from London.

'Israel is a Lunatic State' - Finkelstein on Gaza Flotilla Attack
May 31, 2010

The Israeli current government under Prime Minister Netanyahu is rather extremist and appears to be using its influence in the United States to ignore International Law, the Law of the Sea, The Geneva Conventions and the United Nations to commit acts of piracy, targeted assassinations , kidnapping , looting, murder & other terrorist actions etc.

The US government is heavily influenced not just by Israel and its lobbyists in Washington but also by Evangelical Christians ie Christians United For Israel who believe Israel must be supported & defended unconditionally.
So they become the enablers of Israel's flagrant violations of human rights and the UN judgements against Israel.
The Israeli government & its Evangelical Christian supporters ignore the criticisms of human rights organizations which have condemned Israel's illegal and immoral blockade of Gaza.
So they call any NGO that criticizes Israel as being pro-Palestinian and anti-Israel and therefore according to them such groups are characterized as being anti-Semitic. For instance Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch and The International Committee of the Red Cross have been and are still critical of Israel's draconian treatment of the Palestinians, Gaza and Arab Israelis.
Israel under Netanyahu is not interested in a peaceful settlement since they believe the Palestinians must give up on their claims against Israel while Israel should decide what the ultimate solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict should be .

It is the most radical and extremist forces in the Israeli government and amongst the so-called Jewish Settlers movement who are now calling the shots.

“There is a war between Islamofascism and freedom. There is a war between the culture of death and those who love life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. It is a war WE MUST WIN. The Bible says that you, ladies and gentlemen, are the light of the world. May God anoint each of you and there can be a spiritual awakening in this country. That Christ will be seen as the answer. For there is no other name given among men whereby we might be saved.” Pastor John Hagee

By portraying the Evangelical apocalyptic worldview from within their community, Waiting for Armageddon seeks to clarify the elusive relationship between Christian Zionists and Jews, and foster dialogue among dissenting groups. In the end, the film asks whether this large American voting block is creating a self-fulfilling prophecy of international holy war.

America's 50-million strong Evangelical community is convinced that the world's future is foretold in Biblical prophecy - from the Rapture to the Battle of Armageddon. This astonishing documentary explores their world - in their homes, at conferences, and on a wide-ranging tour of Israel. By interweaving Christian, Zionist, Jewish and critical perspectives along with telling archival materials, the filmmakers probe the politically powerful - and potentially explosive - alliance between Evangelical Christians and alliance that may set the stage for what one prominent Evangelical leader calls "World War III."

“Christ will come back with a sword on his side. And, he will come back as the ultimate judge of the world. We’re going to be behind him with, I believe, swords in our hands and we’re going to be his army. And, this battle…the blood from this battle will be as high as a horse’s bridle. It’s just something mankind has never witnessed before.” Laura Bagg

Seven Mountains of Christian Evangelicals aka Christian nationalists ( Marci macDonald The Rise of Christian Nationalism in Canada pub. 2010 & Michelle Goldberg's 2006 book Kingdom Coming: The Rise of Christian Nationalism )

Israel 's Best Friend Christian Zionists Who Wait For The Obliteration of The Jewish PeopleFirst they support Israel and the Jewish People and then toss them aside and into Hell.

Waiting for Armageddon is a documentary about American Christian Evangelicals and their connection with Israel and what it means for America politically.
US foreign policy must be based upon the Bible's Endtimes scenario.

Evangelical Christians whose theology that is their interpretation of the Bible they believe Israel plays a major role in the Endtimes & Jesus Second Coming . They therefore support Israel unconditionally .
Their support and love of Israel has a dark side to it. In their view God's plan is that the Jews will return to Israel who will then rebuild the Temple to perform sacrifices which will then hasten Jesus' return.
The Jewish people during the Endtimes upheavals will either accept Jesus as their savior (the 144,000) and those Jews who do not accept Jesus will be killed & assigned to an eternity in Hell.
So these Christian Zionists or friends of Israel relegate the Jewish people to a role to be played out during the Tribulation period .
For the Jewish people to be saved according to Evangelical Christians they must give up their own religion that is abandon Judaism to become followers of Jesus or die.

The non-believers including the Jews will be tossed into Hell for all eternity.
Such a positive religion the Four Horsemen of The Apocalypse , rivers of blood and as grand finale a few thousand nuclear bombs go off maybe God just blows them up where they are.
are the Christian Nationalists dancing in the streets or keep their joy to themselves while the Gulf region is being devastated by BP's massive oil spill-
See they claim when God or Jesus returns the earth will be returned to its pristine state.
Of course that's after the Rapture and the anti-Christ and Armageddon

Remember Falwell and pat Robertson were not in a solemn mood but used 9/11 to prove that God was punishing America
Hurricane Katrina blamed on Gay rights
Pat Robertson said the devastating Earthquake in Haiti due to a deal their founding father made with Satan- OMG
Or the Zsunami hitting the Pacific some Hindus and Muslims as well as Christians blamed it on their respective God's wrath.

Maddow What Obama Should Have Said & Rush Limbaugh Re: "Let Them Eat Cake"??? GOP Appologizing to BP For Obama's "Shakedown" ???

Here's a funny & disturbing bit from Comic extraordinaire Rush Limbaugh.

Rush Limbaugh's idiotic response to the fact that many school age children may go hungry during summer vacation because they would not have access to the Government run school lunch programs.
Limbaugh says these kids should if hungry go to the refrigerator in their house & they will find food otherwise he suggest they go to MacDonalds.
This is as bad as France's Marie Antoinete's remark that if the people are without bread "let them eat cake ".
Limbaugh is unable it appears to even conceive that there are millions of poor people in America & that their refrigerators & cupboards may be empty and that there is no money to give to the kids to go to macDonalds

Playing Russian Roulette with workers safety and with the environment.

June 17, 2010 — "I'm here to announce three major developments in the response to the BP Oil Disaster ... Never again, will any company, anyone, be allowed to drill in a location where they are incapable of dealing with the potential consequences ... [A] a new federal command specifically for containment and cleanup of oil that has already entered the Gulf of Mexico ... I no longer say that we must get off oil like every president before me has said too. I no longer say that we must get off oil. We will get off oil and here's how ..." -- Rachel Maddow as Fake President Obama

Barton says the government had no right to chastise BP and making BP accountable for their actions.
Yet we now know that BP lied over & over again to the US government & American citizens & the world claiming the spill was not that bad and that BP was fully prepared before hand for any large oil spill.
BP cut corners & did things on the cheap without regard to worker safety or the possibility of a spill in the Gulf.
