My War
« on: February 28, 2007, 07:53:03 am »
Warning: Radical ideas ahead...

Sorry guys, I turned the TV on tonight.

I just watched a bit of Daily Show and was made privy to a developing story somewhere in the Mid-West. You see, a Muslim group out there is trying to build a mosque, school, and community center on a small piece of land in the middle of a white Christian neighboorhood. The whites there do not want this to happen. They site many reasons, including A. the land is too small for the project, B. they don't want to look at the golden dome, C. they don't want to hear the call to prayer every 3 hours. They stated it was not because they were Muslim, but it is simply a conflict of interest.
To protest they have been having pig races on the border of the proposed site. If you know Muslims, you know they aren't crazy about pigs.

As the story wore on, i was reminded of the gut wretching experience of seeing Borat. Funny? Yes. Disturbing? Goddess, Yes! As the movie progressed you could see the contempt that many Americans across the country have for, well, anyone not like them. The gays were the most discriminated against, and at one point a man basically suggested stuffing them in concentration camps.

Jon Stewart guest was John Amechi, a gay former-NBA player. We were all reminded by the comments made by Tim Hardaway (if you follow sports contraversy). His feelings were much like many: Kill those gays!

The thing that sticks out are not the big points, but the subtleties. I can hear "I don't want them in school with my boy," but what stands out to me is those eyes. Those evil hate-filled eyes. I can sympathize with not wanting a mosque near my home. They have loud prayer calls, traffic will increase, more people around. I know about these issues because I live down the street from a Catholic church. Loud bells, they take the parking, they block the streets. The difference is the eyes. I don't want a mosque because I don't want a bunch of people who follow a stupid religion cluttering my neighborhood. They don't want a mosque because they see Muslims as genuinely lesser people. Their sick, irrational hate oozes out of their eyes, and it sickens me.

It's not just TV and movies. I've been around the world, and i've seen those eyes all over. I'm a first hand witness. I've seen those eyes pointed at gays, and the blacks, and latinos, the muslims, asians. Those eyes have fixed on me, be it my poor looking clothing or my tattoos. My long hair or white skin. I've felt the eyes of disgust for being a "race traitor."

Here we have the basis for My War.

There are a number of varied political viewpoints here. We have advocates for Socailism, and we have Libertarians. We have Communist and Anarchist. I don't have much use for these titles. I used to wonder "what should the balance between freedom and equality be?" Would Libertarian freedom really set us free? Is a Marxist society a Utopia?
Short answer: I have no idea.

What I do know though, is that lynching a man because he likes dick is wrong. Evil. I've always felt morality is relative, but here I take my stand. I genuinely believe that these types of people are a detriment to any good society. This is the one thing that I will fight against. This is my one man jihad against all these bigotted motherfucks.
Unfortunatly I do not have the means to fight a full scale convential war against the neo-nazis and the KKK. What I do have is my tactics. The "anti-bigot boogeyman" we could say.
My form letter?:
Dear Bigot,
You may have noticed that I took the liberty of slashing your tires and putting a brick through your windshield. The psychological and financial pain you are feeling reflects the pain you have put others through during your years of bigotted discrimination. Perhaps it is time to rethink your life.
I know where you live,
White like you.
(or black, or straight, or whatever to drive it home)

Others write songs discouraging racism. People hold marches to promote gay right or open racial dialogue.

I am a soldier.

But, yeah, if those fuckers want Armageddon--that's what they'll get.  The Messiah, Mahdi, Riz Jeez or whomever he's called in Daoism, Hinduism, Voodoo, ad infinitum.

Hey Cain, you turn up anything on Gypsies smuggling people out of the Balkans during your research?

fears a wonderful thing isn't it?
Through me the way to the city of woe, Through me the way to everlasting pain, Through me the way among the lost.

On a more serious note, I agree with Hunter.  However, I wouldn't exactly call it a "war" so much as I call it "pest control".

we gotz the bigots up here in serious numbers. Before it was against the natives, now its against this family who has a East Indian restraunt by my house (on a side note, they make aswome curry and thier waitress daughter is stunning)
all that really happens now is people drive by and shut shit like "go back to Iraq", or "uncover your face. Its degrating towards women!"
the funny part about this all is they're not even Muslims, they're Hindus, but I guess bigots are expected to know the difference.

Our own bigots are almost totally against Muslims, who only make up 3% of the country here.

Oh, and Albanians/other Balkan types, because they "are all criminals".

Not that you ever see them protesting against US businessmen coming over here....

I fucking hate bigots! I hate them as much as I hate the oppressed minorities who get shit on by them. I'm not sure who I hate the most, the haters or the hated, both I think. I hate anyone who has an ethnicity, regional accent or sexual persuasion. I hate them when they're in a huge crowd, shouting abuse at everyone around them. I hate them when they're whining about being victimised by a different huger crowd. The same ethnics that were wining about the BNP kicking in their doors in 80's are running about in gangs terrorising white kids or chinese.

Bigotry isn't a problem or some kinda vicious cycle, it's a symptom. One more glorious expression of human stupidity. In college the anti-racist people were just as much of a bunch of nazi wankers as the racists.

I'll wait for your book "The Zen of Misanthropy"

Athough I also wanted to point out that the most annoying factor (for me, at any rate) is how incredibly non-sentient most human actions appear to be.  The few humans I do like happen to be those who have managed to convince me that they are, in fact, intelligent beings.

As for the rest of it, however, I must confess that I despise bigots and their victims; the bigots for their irrational, senseless violence; the victims for putting up with all that shit.  Honestly.  No belief is worth dying for.  That would be pointless.  Kill for, yes.  Not dying for.  It is a little known fact outside of the meat packing industry that the domestic bovine race has an advanced, albeit pacifist, culture and are currently awaiting the return of the "Marinated One" to free them.  Troof.

Just think how differently Americans would think if Patrick Henry was quoted as saying "Give me liberty or I'll fucking kill you!"

I wish. I am not a wordsmith like, say, LHX who is capable of twisting words into a poetic weapon. I am not like Cain whos vast knowledge of political structure can lead me to write intelligently on the subject, and hope to sway hearts.
I am a dumb ape, just like the very people I hate. I am , however, a large dumb ape with enough knowledge of combat and guerilla tactics to be a nuisence.
The streets have enough poets. It needs more troops.

we gotz the bigots up here in serious numbers. Before it was against the natives, now its against this family who has a East Indian restraunt by my house (on a side note, they make aswome curry and thier waitress daughter is stunning)
all that really happens now is people drive by and shut shit like "go back to Iraq", or "uncover your face. Its degrating towards women!"
the funny part about this all is they're not even Muslims, they're Hindus, but I guess bigots are expected to know the difference.

A disturbing article I read shortly after one terror attack was about a man that was drug out of his store and savagly beaten to death. His attackers wanted to show that freedom would stand, and terrorists would be punished.
The man was a Hindu from India.
And the madness grows.

Yes.  Things like this are the reason Amurikkkans could never stop terrorist on their own.  The real terrorists here look like white guys in suits.

I have ceased to be amazed at the seemingly bottomless depths of Amurikkkan stupidity.  Recently I was witness to a few average white guys casually insulting a Sikh truck driver.  They called him a "raghead" and snidely informed him he should "go home".  It was all rather comic in a way.  I could tell the Sikh was irritated but he was man enough not to let it show too much.  I also wondered if those idiots realized that most Sikhs carry some really wicked knives......
