TELEVISED STOOGE MICHAEL CHE CONTINUED TO WEIGH SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE DOWN AS, LAST NIGHT, HE CAME TO THE DEFENSE OF COMEDIAN AND ACTOR KEVIN HART BY NOTING THAT OTHER COMEDIANS HAD USED HOMOPHOBIC SLURS.
WOW. SHOCKER. OTHERS HAVE SAID HOMOPHOBIC THINGS. WE ARE SURPRISED.
BUT THEIR HOMOPHOBIA WAS TARGETED AT ADULTS -- KEVIN HART ADVOCATED BEATING CHILDREN IF YOU SUSPECTED THEY WERE GAY. THAT'S A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE.
REACHED FOR COMMENT, CHE INSISTED, "I'M JUST A STUPID DOUCHE AND I'VE RUNIED WEEKEND UPDATE. MY MOTHER THINKS I'M FUNNY -- EVEN IF NO ONE ELSE DOES. JUST A FEW DAYS AGO, USA TODAY CALLED FOR ME AND COLIN TO BE REPLACED AS WEEKEND UPDATE ANCHORS. CAN'T A GUY EMBRACE HOMOPHOBIA AND BE UNFUNNY AND STILL STAY ON SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE? WHAT'S THE PROBLEM? OOPS, I S**T MY DRAWERS AGAIN. HA HA THAT'S FUNNY, RIGHT? I'M STILL FUNNY. I'M STILL RELEVANT. I BOMBED AT THE EMMYS AND I BOMB ON SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE BUT I THINK I'M FUNNY. S**T MY PANTS, I'M LAUGHING BECAUSE IT'S FUNNY AND BECAUSE I DID IT."
FROM THE TCI WIRE:
We've frequently covered the use of Depleted Uranium in Iraq under Bully Boy Bush. Let's note this from Barbara Koepel (WASHINGTON SPECTATOR) about Poppy Bush:
The weapons were first used in 1991 during Desert Storm, when the U.S. military fired guided bombs and missiles containing depleted uranium (DU), a waste product from nuclear reactors. The Department of Defense (DOD) particularly prized them because, with dramatic density, speed, and heat, they blasted through tanks and bunkers.
Within one or two years, grotesque birth defects spiraled—such as babies with two heads. Or missing eyes, hands, and legs. Or stomachs and brains inside out.
Keith Baverstock, who headed the radiological section of the World Health Organization’s (WHO) Center of Environment and Health in the 1990s, explained why: When uranium weapons explode, their massive blasts produce gray or black clouds of uranium oxide dust particles. These float for miles, people breathe them, and the dust lodges in their lungs. From there, they seep into the lymph system and blood, flow throughout the body, and bind to the genes and chromosomes, causing them to mutate. First, they trigger birth defects. Within five or more years, cancer. Organs, often the kidneys, fail.
At one Basra hospital, leukemia cases in children up to age 14 doubled from 1992 to 1999, says Amy Hagopian, a University of Washington School of Public Health professor. Birth defects also surged, from 37 in 1990 to 254 in 2001, according to a 2005 article in Environmental Health.
Leukemia—cancer of the blood—develops quickly. Chris Busby, a British chemical physicist, explains: “Blood cells are the most easily damaged by radiation and duplicate rapidly. We’ve known this since Hiroshima.”
Dai Williams, an independent weapons researcher in Britain, says the dust emits alpha radiation—20 times more damaging than the gamma radiation from nuclear weapons. The military insists the dust is harmless because it can’t penetrate the skin. They ignore that it can be inhaled.
Father and son ensured that birth defects and they both should have been held accountable. Poppy Bush is dead so we can consider that both a win and a blessing. But Bully Boy Bush is alive and he should be held accountable. He paints cute pictures! Michelle Obama loves him! He paints hollow bulls**t that will never pass for art and Michelle Obama was greedy and corrupt long before she became First Lady so find a better testimonial for him.
While I'm grateful that one less War Criminal walks the earth, that gratitude does not -- and should not -- translate into silence. Lie after lie has been broadcast non-stop for six or so days now to sell the notion that Poppy Bush was some kind of wonderful.
Bruce A. Dixon (BLACK AGENDA REPORT) points out:
George HW Bush was a one term president who committed committed the usual quota of domestic and foreign atrocities. He put the bloodthirsty Dick Cheney, who’d been Gerald Ford’s chief of staff in charge at the Pentagon, and named Clarence Thomas to the Supreme Court. He invaded Panama, where US forces commanded by Colin Powell obliterated an entire black neighborhood killing tens of thousands of civilians to prevent inconvenient protests against the occupation. Jimmy Carter had negotiated US bases in Saudi Arabia, and Bush filled them with hundreds of thousands of troops, artillery, armor and aircraft for a planned invasion of Iraq.
Millions of Iraqis have died since the Bush invasion, millions more have become refugees. Hardly a week has passed from then till now the the US hasn’t bombed some place in that unhappy country. One of Bush’s last acts as a lame duck president in December 1992 was to land a contingent of US Marines in Somalia to keep that country from forming a unified government that might not be to Uncle Sam’s liking. A quarter century later US forces are still in Somalia, backing this or that warlord faction, or the Somali central government whose reach most days doesn’t extend past the capital’s suburbs, sometimes with Rwandan or Ugandan proxies, sometimes with US paid mercenaries, complimented with US special ops forces and drones.
