The Governor of New Jersey Railroads a Black Critic of Israel

New Jersey Globe first reported on Dye’s Facebook posts. Some of the ones cited have been deleted from his page. Politico New Jersey said it also viewed some of the posts. The website said one post accused Israel of sterilizing Ethiopian Jewish immigrants without informing them. “Ya’ll keep thinking these people are harmless against blacks,” […]

Can a White Actor Play a Black Historical Character?

I found this old interview of James Earl Jones by Dick Cavett. Anthony Quinn (a Mexican of Irish descent) had planned to make a film about the Haitian Emperor Henry Christophe. It’s fairly clear that Jones doesn’t think Quinn should play Henry Christophe but he makes his point in a very nuanced, sophisticated way that’s […]

How to Steal Anybody’s Dirty Gym Clothes

I mostly ride my cheap 800 dollar aluminum road bike through wealthy suburbia. So normally I don’t take many precautions about its being stolen. It’s not that rich people don’t steal. If you follow the local news closely you’ll be surprised at how many nice 5-bedroom McMansions owe their existence to Medicare fraud and insider […]

Slavery vs. Free Labor

This is how the ruling class actually talks about us. From the movie Queimada by Gillo Pontecorvo. It’s also a pretty good explanation of why the ultimate outcome of the United States Civil War was capitalist oligarchy.

A Reason to Impeach Trump Now

1.) The Constitution gives Congress and only Congress the right to declare war. 2.) The United States funds the Israeli military to the tune of billions of dollars a year. 3.) Trump is colluding with Benjamin Netanyahu to keep members of the United States Congress from traveling to Israel, limiting Congress’s ability to make informed […]

Our Fascist American Labor Unions

A union in Pennsylvania goes along with Royal Dutch Shell’s coercing their workers into attending a speech by Donald Trump and forbidding protests. “This is just what Shell wanted to do and we went along with it,” Ken Broadbent, business manager for Steamfitters Local 449, told the newspaper. He said he wouldn’t “bad rap” the […]

Was I an Anti-Racist or Just a Grandstanding Jackass?

Like most Americans, I’m a gutless worm incapable of rebelling against our corporate slave masters. But I’m also a social misfit. All I really want in life is to fit in, to be normal. Yet sometimes I don’t know how. I live in passive aggressive, upper-middle-class suburbia. As a child, I was told by my […]

Charles Bukowski Wonders Why Americans are Incapable of Rebellion

“People simply empty out.” And what hurts is the steadily diminishing humanity of those fighting to hold jobs they don’t want but fear the alternative worse. People simply empty out. They are bodies with fearful and obedient minds. The color leaves the eye. The voice becomes ugly. And the body. The hair. The fingernails. The […]

Assange Must Not Also Die in Jail

Originally posted on The Most Revolutionary Act:
By Craig Murray | August 13, 2019 The highly dubious death of Jeffrey Epstein in a US maximum security prison is another strong reason not to extradite Julian Assange into one – particularly as many of the same people who are relieved by Epstein’s death would like to…

Ulysses Grant and Leo Tolstoy

  Let us consider the Battle of Gettysburg and the Battle of Borodino, the two greatest battles of the 19th Century. Most Americans, even the most historically illiterate Americans, know that from July 2nd to July 4th in 1863, Robert E. Lee and the Army of Northern Virginia, after having scored a stunning victory at […]
