Hooray for Israel

UNTHE POLAR opposite of the oppressive, backward, violent Mohammedan world is, of course, Israel, the sole democracy in that neighborhood, and the only nation thereabouts where women are free.

Another smelly spot on the world stage is the United Nations, where dictators and/or religious nuts gather — mostly on the American dime — to fight freedom. Take a look at the U.N.’s condemnation list for 2014.

As 2015 approaches, let us pray that it will be a very bad year for evil people.

  1. The U.N. started with good intentions, but has evolved into a huge bureaucracy that wastes time and money (something like the U.S. government). I am sure some programs do good, but could be better run by private organizations. Unfortunately, it will continue to stumble along, and accomplish nothing.

  2. It appears that the UN condemnations are directed at Israel taking preveventive action to preserve its very existence. This sounds a little like the Bush Doctrine. It sounds more like negros condemning police for defending themselves in the face of imminent danger.

    1. Carlos: Don’t you know you can’t say negro in public? Once you could, but now you can’t. It used to be the polite term because the others were bad ones. And you can’t say African-American here because I will fuss at you. So that kind of narrows the range of words you can use, I think.

      We say negro here in Mexico, but that’s just fine because it’s surrounded by words in Spanish, which changes everything, plus it’s pronounced a bit differently. But it means the same thing.

      1. And I got fussed at because I said “mallate.” I remember when in the newspaper they would put (C) after one’s name if they were a person of color. The term “darkie” is a no no; the N word will get one in deep trouble, even though you can hear it used amongst themselves. I guess the only acceptable term is “person of color.” Now, I am not even sure if that is safe. I guess we just have to mentally figure out what color applies.

        1. Señor Gill: As I recall, I “fussed” at you for using Spanish, not for the definition. And the reason is that many, likely most, people who pass by here speak only English.

          Putting (c) after a name in newspapers if the person was black? I never heard of that one. Perhaps it was regional. No newspaper I ever worked for did it. Darkie sounds like Gone with the Wind and ole times there are not forgotten, look away, look away … whoops.

          Times and language change.

          As for the N-word, as you know, blacks use it relentlessly. They shouldn’t.

          I think “person of color” is absurd.

      2. A rose by any other name? Maybe those taboo terms don’t refer to the likes of roses. Did you know that Egyptian Americans are also African Americans. So what is PC for this week or until the rose wilts. I kind of like Sub-Sahara African Americans or just Black African Americans.

        1. Carlos: When I was still a working stiff in Houston, one of my coworkers on the newspaper was an immigrant from South Africa. He had lived in the U.S. much, perhaps most, of his life. He was a lily white guy, blond, probably a descent of the Boers. He had become a U.S. citizen, so he was an African-American. Just one example of why that term is silly. It’s too full of flaws. Best to say black American, white American, etc., if race is the issue at hand.

            1. Carlos: From what I have read, and common sense concurs, black Americans who visit Africa are viewed by Africans not as soul brothers but simply as visiting Americans. They don’t really get the “African-American” thing in Africa. The African culture(s) are a universe away from the culture of America, and that includes black Americans no matter how much kente cloth they wrap around themselves. Basically, black Americans who embrace the African thing are just plain silly. They’re Americans, born and bred.

  3. Oops, I am sorry. Working in the prison system for all of those years, I learned a lot of interesting descriptive terms for things that one didn’t dare say in plain language. I do slip into one language or another quite often; we mix it up a lot.

  4. The UN condemnations are only from the General Assembly, which has no teeth. On the UN Security Council, the United States has vetoed every action against Israel. No American president has ever risked the wrath of the Israeli Lobby.

    Personally, I believe the UN should be abolished. It is a very expensive debating society with the intent to create a global government with the authority to collect carbon taxes and eliminate national sovereignty.

    1. Andrés: The General Assembly condemnations reflect the opinions of the general membership. And, yes, thank God for the much smaller Security Council. I too support the total end of the U.N.
