The Hollywood’s inspired racist war on Asian Americans continues.
The Hollywood’s inspired racist war on Asian Americans continues.
Given that Bill O’Reilly has lamented the demise of the white, Christian, male power structure and seems to be concerned about how “the white establishment is now the minority” in a country where the president was elected by minorities who want “free stuff,” it’s not surprising that he would have a soul brother in Peter Brimelow, the founder of the white nationalist, anti-immigrant, anti-Semitic SPLC designated hate group, VDARE. Not only is Brimelow concerned, as is O’Reilly, that “weird aliens with dubious habits” are destroying traditional America; but like O’Reilly, he’s really, Really concerned about the “Christophobes” and Jews who are trying to ruin Christmas. In fact, he seems to be the source of what has become O’Reilly’s and Fox’s season cottage industry the, wait for it – War on Christmas. And he’s proud of his spawn, as reflected in his recent praise of Bill O’Reilly’s valiant effort to beat back the heathen hordes!
Brimelow, now editor of VDARE, took the War on Christmas mainstream. Like Bill, he was offended by the use of “Happy Holidays.” In his book, “Alien Nation,” he cited how this secularization of the Christmas vernacular was an example of the multi-cultural “struggle to abolish America.” After founding VDARE, named after the first white child born in the American colonies, he established a “War on Christmas” competition in which writers would document the worst offenses toward the sacred holiday. In 2001, the winner was a writer who said that the Jews were behind the War on Christmas and that teaching children about Hanukkah “inculcates negative lessons about Christianity, not positive ones about Judaism.”
Brimelow recently wrote about how the War on Christmas is one of his favorite topics and compared it to German Chancellor Bismark’s “drive to eliminate Catholic influence in the German empire.” He whined that, apart from Bill O’Reilly, the evil mainstream media is ignoring this pernicious threat to American Christianity. In the spirit of good, traditional, Christian anti-Semitism, he attacked Jon Stewart’s lampooning of O’Reilly’s War on Christmas as “irrelevant but uninhibited expression of Jewish alienation and Christophobia.”
He then cited – drum roll please – your humble correspondent’s 2008 thread about anti-Semitic connections to the War on Christmas. He claimed that, for some “paranoid reason,” I mentioned VDARE. (Actually, Pete, I was providing some background on the “War” which had, as I mentioned here, anti-Semitic roots as evidenced by the VDARE writer who blamed the Jews for the “War.” Reality, baby – not paranoia.) Brimelow then mentions my recent News Hounds (according to Brimelow an “anti-Fox leftist media enforcer”) article that, “with ludicrous portentousness,” reported on how the ADL once reprimanded O’Reilly over some perceived anti-Semitic comments made in connection with the War on Christmas.
Brimelow followed that article up with the article “Bill O’Reilly’s Very Moderate War on Christmas” in which he dismisses Media Matter’s report that O’Reilly talked more about the bogus War on Christmas more than he’s talked about real wars. He referenced how Bill O’Reilly “exposed” RI Governor Lincoln Chafee over the holiday tree and promoted the Fox enabled lie that Chafee was going to cancel the tree lighting. He then says – another drum roll please that – ready for it – “Bill O’Reilly isn’t really the point man in the War On Christmas (although VDARE.com commends him for continuing to report it). That role is taken by grass roots Americans, who fight back at the level of the School Board and town square.”
So while O’Reilly isn’t quite the head Christmas honcho that he thinks he is, he still got creds from some folks who do seem to have less than six degrees of separation in what would appear to be racially biased world views. And thanks for reading News Hounds, Mr. Brimelow, as the saying goes, that’s mighty white of ya!
BTW, in 2011, Brimelow, who just happens to be a columnist for News Corp.’s “Market Watch,” held a press conference during which he discussed “Why the GOP Must Win White America for Victory in 2012.” Wonder how that worked out for him!!!
who is teaching this boy racist behaviors?
A high school in Baldwin, Wis., a small town about 40 miles east of the Twin Cities, has suspended a ninth-grade student for giving a miniature noose and “KKK symbol” to a black classmate.
Eric Russell, principal of Baldwin-Woodville High School, said he suspended the boy Dec. 14 after he confessed to placing the offensive items on the desk of the classmate, whose foster mother said she is 15 years old and one of only three black students in the 450-student school.
“They were in an art class, and a little macrame noose was made, and some kind of KKK symbol,” Russell said Friday. “These two small objects were placed before this individual. The young man said it was done as a joke.”
But it wasn’t a joke to the black student and her family, said her foster mother, Sarah Hitzeman, who, with her husband, is in the process of adopting the teen.
“She has been experiencing racial comments since joining our family her eighth-grade year,” Hitzeman wrote in an e-mail sent to an advocate for disadvantaged youth and shared with the Star Tribune. “Her freshman year started out with students calling her ‘Big Mocha’ and making fun of her hair and breasts.”
The student told Hitzeman about the Dec. 13 noose incident when she got home from school, and Hitzeman notified Russell the next day, which happened to be the last day before the holiday break.
Hitzeman said she later learned that the school initially gave the boy in-school suspension for one day, but changed it to an out-of-school suspension after the school was contacted by a NAACP representative whom Hitzeman had contacted.
Russell confirmed that since the school break, he has imposed the more severe suspension on the boy. It will begin when students return to school next week. Russell declined to say how long the suspension will last. He said he also notified the boy’s parents and Baldwin police.
The boy’s parents were “upset, shocked” about what their son had done, said Russell, who added that although a police officer interviewed the boy, “I believe no charges have been filed at this time.”
Baldwin Police Chief Jim Widiker, the only department official authorized to answer media inquiries, was out of the office this week and did not respond to a telephone message.
Fred Friedman, the longtime chief public defender for northeastern Minnesota, said he learned of the noose incident through contacts in the Duluth-Superior child advocacy network and was so disturbed that he wrote to the U.S. attorney for western Wisconsin. He said he also tried on Christmas Eve to report it to the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction but could not reach any officials there because of slim holiday staffing.
Media relations officials for both offices were on vacation this week, and neither responded to requests for comment.
‘This isn’t OK’
According to the latest census, the sister communities of Baldwin, population 4,000, and Woodville, population 1,300, are about 96 percent white. Blacks, American Indians and Asian-Americans each make up less than 1 percent of Baldwin’s inhabitants, and Hispanics or Latinos account for 1.6 percent, according to the figures.
School Board Member Deb Rasmussen said Friday that she hadn’t been aware of the noose incident until a reporter called her. She said she doesn’t believe the incident reflects any larger intolerance at the school or in the community.
“Baldwin-Woodville is a good place, and we’re proud of that fact,” she said
Russell called what happened “absolutely not acceptable behavior” and said he believes the boy is remorseful. He said the school may increase the number of activities it does each year designed to promote tolerance and respect for others. He said each grade already has annual “respect retreats” and a student leadership program in which older students mentor incoming freshmen on proper behavior.
Hitzeman said that other students, after hearing of the boy’s suspension, have criticized her foster daughter, saying she overreacted to a joke. Hitzeman said she wants school officials to lay down the law to students and teachers, telling them that the school won’t tolerate race-based harassment of any kind and will come down hard on anyone who harasses someone for reporting it.
“To have a school that has no tolerance for bullying but a lot of tolerance for racial issues isn’t right,” Hitzeman said. “I want my daughter to understand this isn’t OK, and she doesn’t have to accept it.”
this racist app just reach the mainstream media
Asian-American groups in the US are demanding from Google to remove an application (app) from its Google Play store called “Make Me Asian” which allows users to alter their photos to resemble Asian stereotypes.
A similar app called “Make Me Indian” has also received criticism.
“These apps perpetuate hateful and offensive stereotypes that are used to this very day to marginalise and humiliate Asians and Native Americans,” wrote Washington pastor Peter Chin on the website change.org, where he has started a petition for the apps to be taken down.
“They are not funny, and their use highlights a vicious double standard, where people are allowed to characterise” both groups “in a way that they never would do to other races,” Chin wrote about the series of Android phone apps created by designer Kimbery Deiss.
“You can for a few seconds to make himself a Chinese, Japanese, Korean,” Kimbery Deiss wrote on Google Play about the app that allows users with the click of a button to be transformed into an Asian with a Fu Manchu mustache and a rice paddy hat.
Deiss also said that by altering your photo to look like an Indian with brown skin, war paint and a feather headband that will now allow you to “not get bored!”
On the change.org website, Chin is asking that individuals sign a petition stating the apps “are racist and perpetuate false and offensive stereotypes that are hurtful to both Asian and Native American communities.”
college campuses becoming hostile places for non-white students.
Purdue University reported the second-highest number of hate crimes among the country’s colleges last year, according to statistics compiled by the FBI.
The seven alleged hate crimes reported on the West Lafayette campus in 2011 were the most among Indiana colleges, the Journal & Courier reported. So far in 2012, Purdue police have documented 12 hate crimes.
The University of California at Santa Cruz reported nine hate crimes, the most of all colleges in 2011.
The FBI report said five of the incidents reported at Purdue reflected racial bias and two were related to religion. The offenses involved assault, intimidation and vandalized property.
The largest number of hate crimes last year and this year were reported against blacks, closely followed by Jews. Other alleged victims included Muslims, Asians, whites and a gay man, the newspaper said. The majority were acts of vandalism.
A hate crime is defined in federal law as a “criminal offense against a person or property motivated in whole or in part by an offender’s bias against a race, religion, disability, ethnic origin or sexual orientation.”
One hundred hate crimes were reported in Indiana last year, including 13 on college campuses.
Besides Purdue, hate crimes were reported at Indiana State, Indiana University-Southeast and Indiana University-Purdue University-Indianapolis.
Purdue officials attributed the number of local reports to increased awareness and an online reporting system created in 2010, when Purdue reported 11 hate crimes.
“I am confident that we are getting better reporting now,” campus Police Chief John Cox said. “It is unfortunate but in my experience some crimes against people – sexual assault, battery – go unreported, but now we have software that is in place. We have the ability for anyone on campus, for visitors, to report bias incidents now.”
Tyrell Connor, president of the Purdue Black Graduate Student Association, said the number of hate crime reports show Purdue does have a problem handling discrimination. In the past year, students and staff have held rallies against racial incidents on campus and formed an anti-racism coalition.
“What this immediately says to me is that Purdue’s campus creates an environment that allows for certain individuals to feel comfortable to commit these hate acts,” he said. “My dream would be to actually sit down with top university officials and (incoming) President Mitch Daniels and work together on solving this problem.”
Junior Victoria Loong, a Chinese-American who has criticized classmates’ online insults of Asian students, said statistics are less important than experience.
“Numbers don’t matter; what we’re actually experiencing does,” she said.
The FBI database includes 600 campuses. Of those, 500 – including IU-Bloomington – reported no hate crimes, though IU’s annual security report listed three in 2011.
white privilege is when a white man KKKuentin Tarantino can make movies using the n-word in his movies to dehumanize black people and still allowed to make movies. But if you are non-white and defend yourself from a racist white man on facebook comparing your natural non-white features to be being poor and dress in rags you will get fired from your job.
The famed “He Got Game” director says he’s boycotting the new movie because he finds it insulting.
“American Slavery Was Not A Sergio Leone Spaghetti Western. It Was A Holocaust. My Ancestors Are Slaves. Stolen From Africa. I Will Honor Them,” he wrote on Twitter.
The tweet came shortly after he told VibeTV he couldn’t comment on the movie starring Jamie Foxx and Leonardo DiCaprio because he decided not to see it.
“I can’t speak on it ’cause I’m not gonna see it. I’m not seeing it,” he said in a video interview.
“All I’m going to say is that it’s disrespectful to my ancestors to see that film. That’s the only thing I’m gonna say,” he explained. “I can’t disrespect my ancestors. I can’t do it. Now, that’s me. I’m not speaking on behalf of anybody but myself. I can’t do it.”
Lee, 55, even tangled with another Twitter user who took issue with his Holocaust comparison.
“The goal of the holocaust was death and destruction; the goal of American slavery was tobacco, indigo, rice, and cotton,” a post from a user called Rogue Academic read.
“Like Slaves Didn’t Die? What Kind Of Academic Are You? And George Washington Didn’t Own Slaves Too?” Lee responded.
Tarantino, 49, has been the subject of Lee’s ire before.
Lee criticized the “Pulp Fiction” director for his liberal use of the n-word in his third feature film, “Jackie Brown,” a 1997 movie starring Samuel L. Jackson and paying homage to the blaxploitation films of the 1970s.
“I’m not against the word. And some people speak that way. But Quentin is infatuated with that word,” Lee said of Tarantino in an interview with Variety.
“What does he want to be made, an honorary black man?” the “Do The Right Thing” director asked. “I want Quentin to know that all African-Americans do not think that word is trendy or slick.”
Racist Hollywood continuing their war against non-whites by engaging in black-face choosing a light skinned mixed Latina dressing her up in prosthetics to make her look like Nina Simone the black female Jazz Singer. a similar racist yellowface movie cloud atlas is now playing in theaters.
pictures showing Zoe in blackface using prosthetics
Here is light skinned mixed Latina Zoe Saldana
She caused controversy when it was first revealed that she had been cast as Nina Simone, with many saying she wasn’t ‘dark-skinned enough’ to play the legendary jazz singer.
But in first pictures of Zoe Saldana on the set of highly-anticipated biopic Nina, the 34-year-old actress has shown she is throwing herself into the role whole-heartedly.
Zoe was seen wearing a black afro-style short wig and what appeared to be a prosthetic nose, clutching a folder believed to contain her scripts as she made her way to the movie set.
She also appeared to have some slightly darker make-up shaded along her cheek and jawline.
She wore a black dressing gown with white trim, teamed with a matching pair of slippers as she prepared to meet with the wardrobe department ahead of her day’s work.
The decision to cast Zoe as Nina was met with strong criticism with many in Hollywood, including Nina’s daughter Simone Kelly.
Simone took to her Facebook page to voice her concerns, writing: ‘Appearance-wise this is not the best choice.’
However, Simone then continued to say that she had no problem with the star’s acting ability, but added she would have liked to see a darker-skinned actress such as Viola Davis or Kimberly Elise take the part.
But other stars have come forward to back Zoe in the part, with singer and actress Jill Scott telling black women’s web site Hello Beautiful: ‘Zoe is an incredible actress.
‘I think that there should be some work done, like a prosthetic nose would be helpful and definitely some darker make-up.’
The synopsis of the motion picture so far only details that it is the story of the jazz musician and classical pianist, including her rise to fame and relationship with her manager Clifton Henderson.
The civil rights activist certainly celebrated women of darker complexions with her track Images (Of a Wayward Soul), which includes the lyrics: ‘She does not know her beauty. She thinks her brown body has no glory.’
Nina, which also stars The Help actor David Oyelowo as Henderson, is due for release in 2013.
