AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL JOINS THE VOICES SAYING GOOGLE AND FACEBOOK THREATEN HUMAN RIGHTS

Creepy Line“Welcome to the party, pal” as Bruce Willis said in Die Hard. The dangers posed by the modern-day Robber Barons called Techno-Fascists and Techno-Tyrants have been clear to the rest of us for years now. Amnesty International, better late than never, hopped on board recently – click HERE  

Breaking up the monopolies of these privacy-violating outfits or suing them for being publishers and not platforms are two options that keep getting discussed … and with good reason. 

BY THE WAY, ROBERT LUDLUM’S NOVEL THE PROMETHEUS DECEPTION DEALT WITH TECHNO-FASCISTS LIKE FACEBOOK AND GOOGLE WORKING WITH CAREER POLITICIANS TO OPPRESS PEOPLE. 

Mascot sword and pistolTHE TECHNO-TYRANTS OF SILICON VALLEY – The modern-day versions of the disgusting old Robber Barons might well be the corporate fascists aka techno-fascists in assorted tech industries, not just regarding Silicon Valley but also  privacy-violating rich pigs at Facebook and elsewhere.

In fact, you could make the case that people like Mark “Skippy” Zuckerberg and his fellow corporate fascists at Google and elsewhere are even worse since I don’t recall bloated rich pigs like E.H. Harriman or Cornelius Vanderbilt trying to police other people’s every thought, word and deed. The invasive and ever-expanding tentacular reach of techno-fascists or in this fictional case Techno-Tyrants would make these villains a very credible threat to political freedom and freedom of expression.

Freedom of expression amnesty internationalIn recent years outfits like Twitter, Facebook and others even made public noises about banning customers based on their conduct UNRELATED TO THOSE UTILITIES! Can you imagine the old, old Ma Bell monopoly cutting off people’s phone service because their operators caught those users discussing voting for political candidates disapproved of by Ma Bell’s upper echelons or expressing opinions frowned upon by Ma Bell?

Even worse, places like Google and others have made it firing offenses to be caught holding opinions at odds with the one percenters and bloated rich pigs who run those tech-related outfits.

For the Techno-Tyrants of this blog post it’s a quick jump to depicting such abusive totalitarians working in tandem with an oppressive government. They could leave citizens unable to access the internet or their various accounts or medical records until they recant any statements or opinions frowned upon by the Techno-Tyrants of Silicon Valley.  Continue reading

AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL: WORLD RESPONSE TO THE ISLAMIC STATE “SHAMEFUL AND INEFFECTIVE”

Islam clingingAmnesty International has labeled the world’s response to the Islamic State “shameful and ineffective.” I’ve always been blunt about my opinion regarding the need to openly oppose Islam’s reactionary forces but this hypocrisy from Amnesty International is hilarious.

If the world had been capable of a mature, long-term view when the U.S. and other nations were STILL IN IRAQ in large enough numbers then they would not have been pressuring us to leave prematurely, which is what enabled the rise of ISIS and will enable the rise of ANOTHER such force if “the international community” once again does its usual half-assed job of dealing with a situation like this. Premature withdrawals do more damage than not going in in the first place, as we’ve seen with Obama’s insane haste to flee Iraq.

Obama  work here is doneLet’s be honest here – no matter how many nations are involved in the anti-Islamic State effort it will be treated like an “imperialist U.S. invasion” the minute the world – with its short attention span – wearies of the conflict. The presence of all the other nations with us will once again be smugly dismissed as “a coalition of the bought, the bribed and the bullied” like in the most recent incursion into Iraq. No matter HOW determined the international community was to send troops in we’ll be told it was a war based on lies from that eeeevillll America.

What Amnesty International is REALLY saying is: “Hey, Western Democracies – DO SOMETHING, you callous bastards!” But we all know that right after we do “Do something” the cries in the Middle East will change to “Get out of our countries you racist imperialists! You just want to exploit us and steal our oil! Withdraw IMMEDIATELY so we can throw away the accomplishments and sacrifices of your dead soldiers by allowing another group just like ISIS to take over.”  

ARE THE PEOPLE AT AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL AND ELSEWHERE CAPABLE OF UNDERSTANDING THAT: Continue reading

AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL NAMES OBAMA A WAR CRIMINAL; HUFFINGTON POST DECLARES HIS WAR ON PRESS FREEDOM “A DICTATOR’S DREAM”

A piece of political sewage who bubbled and gurgled up from the cesspool of Chicago politics.

A piece of political sewage who bubbled and gurgled up from the cesspool of Chicago politics.

It’s no secret that the Obama administration may well be the most corrupt and abusive in history. And I’m the furthest thing from a Conservative you can find. I could fill this site every day with stories about the ongoing developments in the countless investigations into this weak, inept and crooked little man but we’d all get bored with the repetitious coverage of this criminal’s venality, pomposity and general douchebaggery. (To borrow a phrase from Ted White)

Not only did one of Little Barry’s usual lapdogs, the Huffington Post, declare his war on free speech to be “a dictator’s dream” but Amnesty International quite rightly declared this Continue reading

ISLAM’S WAR ON WOMEN CONTINUES WITH A VERY OLD CHARGE: WITCHCRAFT

 As if perpetuating the superstitious savagery of killing people for drawing pictures of the blood-soaked “prophet” Muhammad isn’t bad enough, leave it to Islam, the most backward religion on the face of the Earth at this particular moment in history, to still be killing people over witchcraft.

Under Sharia Law convicted witches are  beheaded in the Muslim world according to Amnesty International, which has Continue reading
