The Mainstream and the Margins: Noam Chomsky vs. Michael Parenti

Originally posted on Popaganda:
Noam Chomsky is, as anyone reading this knows, a linguist, MIT professor, and the English-speaking world’s foremost radical dissident intellectual. Chomsky’s work in this latter capacity is so well-documented that it’s not necessary to recapitulate too much—however, a few choice high notes include decades of criticism of US foreign policy, some…

Happy Birthday Bob Dylan

The best song ever written about the phoniness of Americans, the phoniest people ever created.

The Espionage Act

I wonder why this German ape has so much lust for white (presumably French or Belgian) women when there are actually plenty of white women in Germany. It’s important to put the Espionage Act (which is being used to prosecute Julian Assange) in its historical Context. Back in 1917, Wall Street had loaned billions of […]

From the war on terror to russiagate

Surely I can’t be the only one who’s noticed that John Walker Lindh was released from prison the same day as Julian Assange was charged under the espionage act. NPR assures me the FBI is watching Lindh. It’s hard to believe it’s been 8 years since 9/11. Lindh of course wasn’t a terrorist, just an […]

Every once in awhile you have to feel guilty about being a good German

At least until the RAF bombs Dresden.

When it comes to Game of Thrones, I’m on the Side of the Feminists

Happy endings aren’t always bad. Cynical, contrived unhappy endings aren’t always good. In fact, when it comes to popular culture, they can be downright reactionary. So game of thrones sets up a narrative where a teenage girl becomes the female Luke Skywalker and saves the world from the dead. The handsome prince Jon Snow is […]

On the Issue of Sanders and the Contras

So the New York Times does a hit piece on Bernie Sanders for opposing Reagan’s policies in Central America. Lest anybody forget, Reagan colluded with the Iranians (sold them arms when they were under sanctions) in return for money to support a terrorist war against Nicaragua, which went to the world court and got a […]

Daenerys Targaryen Burns King’s Landing

Just kidding. It’s actually West Philadelphia, and it was actually a gang of Democratic Party officials including future Pennsylvania governor Ed Rendell. It was just around Mother’s Day in 1985 when the Philadelphia city government stuffed explosives into a satchel, flew a helicopter over a home on Osage Avenue in West Philadelphia, and dropped the […]

The Death of Stalin (2017)

It is I, Robert Mueller, and I have come to the White House to depose Trump and restore Hillary Clinton to her rightful place in the Oval Office. For an American, or any westerner, honestly confronting the legacy of the Soviet Union under Joseph Stalin can be especially difficult, or even impossible. On one hand, […]

Peterloo (2018)

Rise like Lions after slumber (but not with this pompous cunt) In unvanquishable number, Shake your chains to earth like dew Which in sleep had fallen on you — Ye are many — they are few. Try to imagine, for a moment, that the March on Washington ended, not with Martin Luther King’s I Have […]
