1. After taking a huge break from even occasional blogging I come back to see that nothing has really changed. The zionist industrial complex (ZIO) has most Americans on one side or another of a host of stupid issues, perhaps the stupidest is the issue about a flag. Really? Any American who thinks that the issue is about Trump versus Kaepernick and worshipping a towel very likely made in China is at best an unwitting participant in an absolutely zionist bullshit issue (ZBI). This is a hoax people, wake the fuck up.
I suggest that the NFL and Trump – and many of the NFL owners support this guy – try an experiment. Instead of having the national anthem played while the American flag is flying right before every meaningless football game to instead have the band play Ha-Tikvah and have the Israeli flag flying instead. (And then have a bunch of American-made Israeli F-16s, fly over the stadium and drop a bomb on some Palestinian children.) Then let the games begin.
Let’s see who says what then. I wonder what the Vegas odds (does it bother you that a town entirely based on crime plays such a huge roll in your sports entertainment? No, I didn’t think so, but I digress) – say an over and under – would be for the number of Hillary people who would protest in the US? You get one guess, Shas party members get two.
Now, now, I can hear you all saying “But Mantiq, don’t you think that is really over the top? We know you like to exaggerate for effect, but good fucking grief Mantiq, do really think that the Israeli planes would drop only one bomb on those Palestinian children? You’ve got to be kidding. In fact, it would be even cooler if you added some Lebanese kids to the mix.”
Okay, well you have a point. I just don’t want to get Giraldi-ed. But yeah, you are probably right. More on the Giraldi issue in an upcoming post.
2. Why the fuck do you think that the anthem is played before sports events and why do so many children have to say the pledge of allegiance every day in school? They are turning you into flag-worshippers, flaggots, to keep your asses enthralled with the ZIO and only talking about utterly meaningless issues while you and your children are victimized by these assholes. Let me tell you where the anthem is not played all the time and where the pledge of allegiance is not said every day – in fact damn near never. Do you think the folks in the intelligence community – those 16 or more outfits usually with three letters attached – recite the fucking pledge every day? Hell no. And I mean hell no. Do you think they play the national anthem all the time – except on certain occasions like when they reward personnel for whatever management has misunderstood about what they were actually doing in their jobs. Otherwise, fucking forget it.
But Johnny has to say the pledge in school every day even though they can’t legally make him do it. And when you take him to a pro football game or a baseball game you both get to stand up for the anthem and if you don’t, then you are some sort of son of a bitch. The guy behind you will insult you, you will turn around and punch him in the face, he’ll put out a knife, you will pull out your licensed concealed handgun and blow him away, and neither Trump nor Hillary will give a fucking shit about you or him. They never have and they never will.
3. الحب. Love. All of the male tuyuur here at Mantiq al-Tayr have become the Majnun to the Layla of the blogosphere. The gorgeous, brilliant, witty, sarcastic scribe from the land of Oz, Caitlin Johnstone. At once exotic yet familiar, so far away, yet so near to their hearts. Humble and charming to the woke, a thunder clasp to those who are asleep, she fears not any critic. She’s also funny as hell sometimes.
And damn she is distracting the hell out of them. I can’t get them to read anyone else. I’m getting no fucking help with my research anymore, so I tasked them with collecting some excerpts from her blogs for this post. Suddenly I got some cooperation.
So here are a few excerpts from recent posts along with the links. Note to Shas party members, there is no need for red highlighting here as all of them should be savored – in fact they should be read aloud in coffee-shops around the world.
“It baffles me how some people can continue to say that Donald Trump is politically inept and doesn’t understand how Washington works. He crushed both the Bush and Clinton dynasties on his path to election, he’s got a significant and heavily-armed support base willing to literally fight and die for him if he’s ever impeached, and his ability to use wedge issues to manipulate support puts even David Brock to shame. His political bullshitting IQ is off the charts. He was born for this.”
(The above are the opening lines of her take on the flag issue.)
“Fourth, the notion that “the free world is counting” on the US for leadership is moronic flag-waving, chest-pounding bullshit.”
“The Real Reason Hillary Can’t Just Shut The Fuck Up And Go Away”
(such a great title for a post)
“I’ve hyperlinked the aforementioned names to their respective Twitter accounts in the preceding paragraph for you. You’ll see them babbling about Russia, DACA, “Teflon Don” whatever the fuck that is, but you won’t see anything about the Senate’s vote to leave unbridled military force authorization in the hands of a president they assure us is a traitor, a madman, and a barely-closeted Nazi.”
“If you oppose the expansionism of the US war machine (and I insist that you’ve got no right to call yourself part of the left unless you do), then establishment Democrats are not your friends. Their whole McResistance is a farce designed to herd Democrats back into the stables of the neoliberal neoconservative one-party system, not to oppose Trump.”
“Don’t do this, please. This is bad thinking and bad behavior. US foreign policy isn’t made less evil by your pointing out the fact that Kim Jong Un is not Mahatma Gandhi. We already know he isn’t (he has a completely different arrangement of letters in his name), and nobody benefits from your interrupting the dialogue with this obvious fact while the grownups are talking.
“The US war machine lies constantly. The US war machine kills people to advance the agendas of war profiteers, oligarchs and neoconservative ideologues. None of the statements I just made are disputable, and none of them are nullified by the fact that there are other bad people who may also be doing bad things.”
“The idea, I guess, is to try and blame Trump’s opportunistic tweets about the DNC election results for the anger that progressives have been expressing over being used as toilet paper by the Democratic establishment again and again and again.”
“Besides the fact that she (Hillary) keeps making an absolute ass of herself whenever she rears her plastic head, more revelations have come to light since the election which prove that those of us who fought her tooth and claw were absolutely right to do so. Here are three of them.”
“For all of Trump’s idiocy both foreign and domestic, he has been vastly more restrained in Syria than Clinton promised to be. Even as recently as April she was still saying that Trump needed to destroy the very air force that Syria is using to defeat ISIS, Al Nusra and the other violent jihadist factions who oppose the nation’s only legitimate government.”
4. I found this one on my own. Oh my Layla.
And I kiss this wall and that wall
It’s not Love of the walls that has enraptured my heart
But of the One who dwells within them
5 . Okay, it’s video time.
US Knesset Member Cardin being given a tough time. This is almost as good as watching Sadie belly dance.
Sadie. I bet you people will just skip to here. 🙂
