As I Type This, I am Literally In Tears – Man dying of cancer says $289M Monsanto verdict not “in vain”

You will always be in my thoughts. And believe me, those who did this to you are going to get what’s coming to them! Count on it! You can be forgiving of them, it won’t!

 

 

Dewayne Johnson knows that he most likely will never see one dollar of the $290 million that a jury awarded him in a trial against the agricultural giant, Monsanto, but he wanted what happened to him after Monsanto’s Roundup came into contact with his skin, to not happen to anyone else. He will leave behind him a wife and two sons and he wanted them to know that you have got to be “strong and go all the way through.”

“Dewayne Johnson’s ordeal began when he took a job as a pest control manager for a Bay-area school district in 2012. Part of his job? Spraying glyphosate-based weed killers made by Monsanto – chemicals he said trainers told him were safe.

“One of the things that stuck out to me the worst is when they told me it was safe enough to drink,” Johnson said, adding, “Actually, they – it became a joke almost. Like, ‘Hey, man, did you drink your –’ … It was like, ‘What?’ You know, it was really a shock.”

Despite that, Johnson said he always wore his protective gear while spraying some 20 to 30 times a year, sometimes two to five hours a day.

“Oh, you’re gonna get it on you. You’re gonna get it on your skin. You know what I mean? It was never like ‘Oh, I didn’t even get any on me today.’ It was always like, ‘Man, I’m glad I had this on,'” Johnson said.

Especially after a hose came loose, he said, spraying chemicals inside his suit. It was a few months after that he developed a rash that spread over his body. “It never went away. And it got worse, and then worse, and worse,” Johnson said.

Doctors diagnosed him with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Later that year, he called Monsanto.

Of course no one from Monsanto called him back even after a  representative at Monsanto told Mr. Johnson that she would relay his message to someone to give him a call. During the trial, it was revealed that an executive did indeed, receive a message to call Mr. Johnson, but he stated that he could not recall if he ever did speak to Mr. Johnson. That lying bastard knew that he had not bothered to call a man he knew was dying from a product produced by the vile company he worked for.

Mr. Johnson, despite having been told by his doctors that he had only months to live and most likely would not even live to testify at the trial against Monsanto, not only lived to  see the lawsuit against Monsanto come to trial, but has also lived to see the $290 million verdict handed down against Monsanto since it is their product that is killing Mr. Johnson.

Dewayne Johnson, a human being, a descendant of slaves, who were it not for the fact of slavery, would not be in this country dying from a toxin produced by a corporation owned by those who look just like those who dragged his ancestors to this country to become slaves. Whatever Dewayne Johnson chose to do with his life, it should have been his choice to make, but that choice was taken away from him when his ancestors were dragged from their native land on a floating barge of enslavement and death and though some may assume that Dewayne Johnson would not have had such a wonderful life in Africa, how will he ever know? Because he was not allowed to live the life that he should have been allowed to live just as his ancestors were not allowed to live their lives the way they otherwise would have if not for the fact of a trans-Atlantic boat ride into slavery.

Dewayne Johnson and the rest of us who are in America through no fault of our own; certainly not by way of immigration are being systematically eliminated as though we are not even human and that is how it has always been and always will be. And as usual, those who are the descendants of the very ones who dragged Mr. Johnson’s ancestors to this land, are denying any culpability, any responsibility in what their ancestors set in motion hundreds of years ago as they continue with the same today.

Whatever deposited the filth on this planet that could do to Mr. Johnson what was done to him has no conscience, no moral compass, no compassion, no ethics, no decency and no humanity. You are pure, unadulterated dead white filth and though Mr. Johnson has been extremely benign in his words to the dead white filth that killed him, I am not so inclined. I sincerely hope with every fiber of my being that what I know is coming for your filthy, dead white asses will make you suffer such agony that you will not even know your own name and that of any one in your so-called family of murdering psychopaths since you still deny to this very day, that your product is what is killing this man  and in a most horrible way. May he not suffer what you will and those who lie for you!

I will never keep a civil tongue in my head when speaking of whites because they are why we have toxin filled food, water and air. They are why we have weapons of mass destruction. They are why the world is at war. They are why our home, this planet, is also dying. How in the world could dead white filth ever have originally come from this planet when they are the only ones, who from day one, have done nothing but invent shit to destroy it. Every group that is indigenous to this planet has melanin. Dead white filth which is always calling itself, superior, but which is in every way, inferior, are the only pieces of shit that have no melanin. We are superior to them in every way and they know this, but they want us to believe that it is the other way around. Never believe that for a nanosecond. Why do you think they are doing their damn best to get us to lie down with them? It is to continue their species because it is dying out. And those half-breeds that are being produced come out with the same concept of immorality of those that lent their DNA to the production of the continuation of a species that needs to die out! Because only by their complete annihilation will the rest of us live and we are running out of time. I cannot make you refuse to lie down with your enemy. But consider yourselves, warned. They are NOT your friend. They never have been and they never will be and that half breed that you produce with them is just like them! Believe me, I know. I have got two of those things in my family and I don’t recognize either ‘its’ as family nor do I recognize my own son who laid down with pure dead white filth and helped produce another enemy and even another that when those ‘its’ grow up, will kick his ass and mine from here to kingdom come because they are doing it now.

Wake the fuck up, why don’t you!!!!!

And lastly, even though Mr. Johnson will never read this, I honor him even as he never says a harsh word against his mortal enemy, who once again, wins because Mr. Johnson will die leaving behind sons who need their father but who will only be confronted by more dead white filth in blue and brown uniforms, stopping to pull them over for having melanin in their skin. But know this, dead white filth, this planet will do to you what we cannot. It will get rid of you and your shit in one way or another and it has already started. You don’t have a fucking prayer, not that you even give a damn for your fucked up religion that you use to control the masses, but even that fake ass shit won’t save you. So preach it to the rest of the dead white filth sitting up on Sunday listening to your lies and they are still going to get exactly what you are going to get, something so horrific it will make every vile invention of yours pale in comparison. Count on it, you murdering depraved, lying, deceitful, white, dead filth!

 

Carr fire in Redding moved faster than evacuation orders, leaving a deadly toll. To Me, This Is Reminiscent Of Hurricane Katrina

 

Can you remember back to the days when Black people who lived in New Orleans and who could not escape the flood waters when Hurricane Katrina hit were ridiculed for not being able to jump into their fully gassed up SUVs and flee the city?

Organizer Says Black Residents Were ‘Left To Die’ After Hurricane Katrina

“This country showed us how they feel about black people and people of color.”

Comments on every major news site comment section were filled with contempt for those who were too poor to make it out of New Orleans before becoming trapped and of course, whites were the ones with the most vile comments aimed at those poor Black people. Now, fast forward to what is going down in California and I have not seen one comment that is ridiculing or expressing contempt for those whites who absolutely refuse to leave their homes even though many of them could actually see the flames from where they were standing and at the last minute, attempted to leave resulting in the deaths of some. It has been estimated that at least 41 people have lost their lives as a result of the California wildfires.

Carr fire in Redding moved faster than evacuation orders, leaving a deadly toll

REDDING, Calif. – The Carr fire swept into the edge of this city without mercy, leveling two neighborhoods on either side of the Sacramento River.

Officials said the system they used for evacuating neighbors in the path of the fire July 26 simply didn’t account for the rapid change in its speed and behavior, which was marked by dramatic “fire tornadoes” that pushed the flames at more than 160 mph.

The blaze’s speed overwhelmed firefighters and the county’s ability to alert people ahead of it when it jumped a 90-degree bend in the Sacramento River. It also comes less than a year after fires in the state’s wine country went into neighborhoods with little official warning and killed more than 40 people in the middle of the night. Many folks here said they suspect the Carr fire would have been just as deadly had it come through at a similar hour.

The chaos surrounding the fire’s surge into Redding – thousands of people fleeing as firefighters and police rushed to the scene – has forced public officials to reassess their response to adapt to an age of increasingly fast and destructive blazes.

For months, there has been headline after headline about the California wildfires and the fact that there is no end in sight to them and that phenomena never before seen has been recorded such as “firenadoes,” which have been described as a rapidly rotating column of flames above an intense fire, caused when air, dust, etc. is drawn into the fire from the surroundings and rises, creating a vortex much like what occurred in Hawaii with the eruption of Kilauea when what was described as lavanadoes occurred when intense heat from the volcano causes the air to rise rapidly and stretch out into a column, under the right wind conditions, this column of air can begin to rotate, creating a twister made of fire, smoke, ash, and even lava if it can stay suspended in the air.

Even a private hire bulldozer operator was killed when a fast-moving fire approached him while he was trying to save someone’s house. Now, he is dead, the house was not saved and so what was the point?

So, even when told to leave, some whites simply refuse because their possessions are just too important to them and not only will they risk their lives but they also have no problem with someone else risking their life in an attempt to save their possessions.

And only one person that has been interviewed or photographed is Black. Go figure! Black people could not get out of New Orleans because they did not want to. They could not get out of New Orleans because they did not have the means. Meanwhile, the mostly white folks who are being impacted by these California wildfires have the means to escape, they just refuse to leave their precious possessions and so are willing to die with them or hire someone else to protect their possessions and die in the process and that is what they are doing because there is no way that they can fail to see the flames in the distance heading their way when I have seen news reports that state that the smoke from the California wildfires has made its way to the East Coast.

Report: Smoke from the California wildfires has reached the East Coast

Air pollution from wildfires has made its way across the U.S.

Why in the world are you people insisting on risking the lives of others who are trying to go door to door to get you to leave your possessions? What is wrong with you? Your possessions are more important to you than life itself? Apparently!

And as if that is not bad enough, it has been stated that inmate firefighters are ‘earning’ $1 an hour battling these blazes.

California is paying inmates $1 an hour to fight wildfires

There are roughly 14,000 firefighters on duty battling fires across the region. Among them are more than 2,000 inmates.

The inmates are part of a volunteer firefighting program run by the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR). They’re paid $2 a day, and $1 an hour when fighting an active fire. They also earn time off their sentences.

CA Corrections

@CACorrections

Today, more than 2,000 volunteer inmate firefighters, including 58 youth offenders, are battling wildfire flames throughout CA. Inmate firefighters serve a vital role, clearing thick brush down to bare soil to stop the fire’s spread.

 

Youth offenders? Youth offenders are fighting these wildfires and we don’t have a problem with that, do we? Of course not! Because they are protecting THE PROPERTY OF WHITES! Underage children are out there battling blazes that have killed seasoned firefighters! What the hell is wrong with U.S.? Will we ever draw the line at anything or just continue to stop at nothing?

This is why your shit is burning down! This is why what is going down is going down and will continue because you don’t give a damn about people, you only give a damn about buildings and other possessions. Someone’s child is out there battling a blaze to save your goddamn house and vehicle and you say absolutely NOTHING! You find not a goddamn thing wrong with that because you are morally and spiritually bankrupt and that is why your shit is burning to the ground! May it damn well continue, you pack of filthy savages!

He’d Get Even!

 

A child was born, dark as night,
and sent out into the world.
Everywhere he turned,
such insults, people hurled.

He took this all in stride,
grew up and became a man.
Took one look at his skin,
it was darker than a tan.

On a mountaintop, he stood,
looking out on a sea of hate.
He decided that once and for all,
he’d be the master of his own fate.

He had been followed for many a day,
even when he’d stopped to rest.
He thought he’d never feel secure,
knew that to him, this was a test.

God, they said, loved him
and he believed it for awhile.
but he carried with him, a match.
It’ll be evidence at his trial.

You see, this man, he may have snapped
on a hot day in July.
They say he lit a match or two,
but that could be a lie.

They say he took a match in hand
and lit it with intent
to burn and scorch some wood
and express his discontent.

Or maybe he got tired
of America and her shit!
And decided he’d get even
with a match that he’d just lit!

I wrote a poem similar to this one last year and only tweaked it a bit. But you can read the other one here!

This poem was written because a Black man has been arrested for starting the California wildfires that have consumed so many acres and burned so many structures and the fires are still raging even though there are also stories bandied about that fires were started by a vehicle burning up and the wind carried the flames. Nevertheless, this Black man is being charged and held in lieu of $1 million bail in connection with the wildfires. If he did start some of those fires, I for one, don’t blame him. Maybe he did snap. Maybe, he got fed up and that was the only way he knew to fight back. Do I fault him for that if this is indeed, the case? Absolutely not! And from the looks of the structures that have burned, it looks to me like no Black person lost their home or livelihood especially seeing as how the only ‘people’ who have been interviewed are ‘white’. Go figure! It would seem that ‘white’ folks want a race war and since that is the case, you may just get what you’ve been spoiling for. But remember, there is more than one way to skin a cat!

TEMECULA, CA — A Temecula man has been arrested on suspicion of starting the out-of-control Cranston Fire burning near Idyllwild, fire officials announced Wednesday night. And not only is the 32-year-old accused of starting the 4,700-acre fire Wednesday — but he’s also accused of starting four other fires in Southwest Riverside County.

Brandon N. Mc Glover was arrested Wednesday. Riverside County Sheriff’s Department records show he was booked on suspicion of five counts of arson on a structure, five counts of arson on land and three counts of maliciously setting a fire. His bail was set at $1 million.

I must say, Brandon N. Mc Glover knows how to stick it to the ‘white’ man. Burn his shit down and you’ve fucked up his day! Discommode some ‘white’ folks by rendering them homeless like the Black people who have been displaced by gentrification and you fuck up the ‘white’ man’s day. My day ain’t fucked up behind this and that is for damn sure! You see, camping is fine for ‘white’ folks when it is something they WANT to do, but when it is something they have to do…well now, that’s a different story. Ask the ‘whites’ who are still camping out in Hawaii if they still like camping out thanks to the Kilauea volcano erupting and  burying their homes in lava. Karma is a bitch, ain’t it ‘white’ folks??!! And you ain’t done receiving yours yet, so don’t even think it!

Man pulls gun on neighbor in Hawaii and screams, “Get Off My Fucked Up Piece Of Paradise!”

Weary from the ongoing flow of lava from the Kilauea volcano, 61-year-old John Hubbard, went berserk and pulled a gun on a neighbor and fired several shots as the lava flow is getting hotter, more fluid, and faster, covering about six football fields an hour. During the four-week crisis, molten rock has spread across four-and-a-half square miles of the Big Island – more than three times the area of New York’s Central Park causing tensions to rise among those in the affected areas who have chosen to remain in their homes despite officials insisting that they evacuate as the spreading lava has the potential to cutoff their only remaining escape route.

From looking at the video, it would seem that things are heating up in Hawaii in more ways than one. Sixty-one year old Hubbard is seen in the video pointing a gun and shooting at or near another man who seems to be trying to explain to him that he lives just down the road, but outraged over the lack of ‘paradise-like’ conditions, Hubbard is having none of it. Fortunately for his other neighbors, Hubbard has been arrested and accused of opening fire and allegedly assaulting a neighbor.

Hawaii’s police department has long been trying to urge residents of this area to leave due to the rapid approach of lava and if incidents like this one continue, the police will have an easier time of getting these people to leave by merely arresting them. And from what I can tell from the video, there has been not one Hawaii Native yet to kick up a fuss and get to shooting, however, whites seem to have no problem shooting it out as the going gets tough, hence the reason they flocked to Hawaii in the first place; to experience ‘paradise’. Who would have thought that ‘paradise’ came with its own issues? How is it even possible that whites should be inconvenienced by a volcano erupting and spilling massive amounts of lava thus covering their homes, vacation rentals and hindering their ability to traverse the terrain around an active volcano?

This island, Honolulu, Hawaii, was touted as ‘paradise’ and by god, ‘paradise’, it should be! What need has ‘paradise’ for an active volcano spilling lava, cooling and then forming massive molten rock walls with lava still flowing between them? It is just too much for whites to take and so it is no wonder that, as usual, guns are the answer to solve the problem of fury over volcanic eruptions. Homelessness is something for the Native Hawaiians to have to deal with, not the whites who usurped the rights of the Native Hawaiians, rendered them homeless and who are now shooting it out amongst each other over ‘Paradise Lost’.

It matters not where whites eventually end up, the solution to every single one of their ‘problems’, ‘inconveniences’ and volcanic eruptions, is to grab a gun and shoot the ‘problem’ or ‘inconvenience’ or volcanic eruption away. I would not be surprised if they did indeed, try to take a gun to the fast moving lava in an effort to cause the flow to cease and desist so that they can, once again, relax on the lanai with a refreshing, alcoholic beverage in hand, while their housekeeper, Native Hawaiian, of course, is busy cleaning up after them. Is that not what happens everywhere white people wash up? Ecuador, Costa Rica, Belize, Panama, Aruba, The Bahamas, Antigua and Barbuda and the list is endless? Make use of the natives as cooks, maids, gardeners and housekeepers? That ‘cheap’ labor thing, you know.

I wonder where the whites will take themselves to next after they lose their homes in Hawaii thanks in part to Kilauea? Just stay put and do not expose innocent people to your penchant for guns, violence and exploitation of the natives of other lands. Haven’t they already put up with more than enough from you?

And lastly, the image of the white man holding a gun on another white man is indicative of their nature. Forever the warring type with an inability to even get along with those who look like them, much less others. But people have the nerve to wonder why others would consider it a favor if whites did not show their faces on their land bringing with them such as this. I don’t wonder. I pity the natives of every island nation or country that was colonized by the likes of these aberrations who desecrate the native peoples and their land and then claim superiority. If only what is pictured below was coming after your white ass! If only!

AGAIN…….IF ONLY!

Whites Made Homeless In Hawaii Thanks To Kilauea Volcano Eruption! How Does It Feel? Ask Those Indigenous To Hawaii. They Already Know!

 

On January 31st of this year, I re-blogged a post from a fellow blogger regarding the fact that Hawaii’s indigenous population has been made homeless thanks to the Europeans moseying on over there and taking control of every piece of Hawaii, from Hawaii’s infrastructure to political representation thus rendering the voice of the true islanders, null and void.

Homeless in Hawaii

Pu’uhonua O’ Wai’anae village is Hawaii’s oldest and largest homeless community. Most people who live there are Native Hawaiian. The unofficial mayor of this community, Twinkle Borge, had this to say, “How is it that the Hawaiians are struggling? You came here and took our land from us and we are struggling.”

A third of Hawaii’s homeless population are Native Hawaiian. And the white folks who went to Hawaii and apparently made it big off the tourist trade now own multi-million dollar homes and are demanding that local and state politicians continue to enact laws that make it illegal to be homeless in Hawaii and yet another law was enacted making it illegal to ‘sit or lie’ down on the sidewalk.

What was done to these people is worse than a disgrace and those of you who are of European descent have much to answer for, too damn much and yet, you are immune to the suffering that to this very day, you are the cause. How can you even think that you can call yourselves, “human?” Because it is quite obvious that the majority of you have no conscience to bother you at all.

The average house in Hawaii costs $700,000 and it has been stated that most people have to work two jobs just to pay for somewhere to live. And yet while the native islanders are homeless, in this video there were tourists who were having wedding photos taken at the same time that people whose land this was originally are trying to find water and who have no electricity in their homeless encampment.

These are the times when I am so very glad that I am not ‘white’ or otherwise of European descent because when the time of reckoning comes, I won’t have to worry, you will! And how! And hell would be too good for the likes of you!

The Most Revolutionary Act

Now fast forward to today and the news out of Hawaii is most gratifying.

Hawaii volcano’s 3 weeks of hot lava and toxic air — with no end in sight

Gov. David Ige said the volcanic eruption and its aftermath have spread fear and uncertainty. Volcanic vents, or fissures, have cracked open across the area and gobbled up dozens of homes and vehicles.

Several fissures, or cracks in the ground, are pumping out lava that’s threatening a local geothermal plant. If lava gets in the wells at the plant, it can release hydrogen sulfide, a dangerous gas.

Yes indeed, let’s come up with a brilliant idea to build a geothermal plant on an active volcano and expect the best possible outcome. What ‘brilliance’ was behind that decision? Now, the geothermal plant workers are supposedly working furiously to cap the wells so that no other gasses are mixed with the poisonous gasses released from the volcano that is costing Hawaii’s pasty-faced population millions in tourism dollars while the mainstream media would have us believe that now is the best time to visit ‘paradise’.

While Native Hawaiians have been suffering mightily since the Americans arrived, all the focus has been on what a toll this volcanic eruption has taken on those who have no business there in the first place. At least if the island had been left to the Native Hawaiians, there would be no need for worry over a geothermal plant meeting up with flowing lava.

The arrogance of whites will result in the destruction of us all while everyone else is expected to bemoan their fate from what they put into play. Those whites in Hawaii who have been impacted by Kilauea erupting can just cry me a river because I will save my anguish for those who are their innocent victims like Twinkle Borge, who is working tirelessly to aid the indigenous population to deal with homelessness that they were experiencing long before this latest volcanic eruption. And what she said about what the Americans have done to her and her people bears repeating.

“How is it that the Hawaiians are struggling? You came here and took our land from us and we are struggling.” – Twinkle Borge

Yeah! How is it that her people are struggling while you pasty-faced devils stole those peoples’ land right from underneath them, but yet, you are the very ones who are now wailing and moaning because lava is now covering your houses and you’re sitting somewhere in a Red Cross shelter expecting pity and talking about how bored you are. Fuck you! I sincerely hope that every single dwelling that houses an American pasty-faced piece of shit from the mainland manages to come into contact with hot ass lava flows and is incinerated. Then sit your nasty ass down somewhere with a tent over your head and find out how it feels to live like Twinkle Borge and thousands of other Native Hawaiians.  You’ll get no damn sympathy and pity from me because as far as I am concerned, you don’t have a plight. You’re about to come into contact with red hot karma and ain’t she a bitch??!!! Now, bitch and moan about that! And then take your pasty ass on over to the Virgin Islands and deal with the ongoing devastation of those islands thanks to last year’s hurricanes. And remember, hurricane season starts June 1st. You’re just in time for a relaxing time on yet another island ‘paradise’. Running out of ‘paradises’ are you? Well too fucking bad! Because this planet ain’t done with you pasty-faced shits yet!

Kilauea, fucking burn their shit up over there for the next ten goddamn years!!! You nasty white bastards never think that you’ll ever get your due, but when the innocents of this planet are not able to beat your pasty-ass back, this planet can, will and is! Throw your money and credit cards at Kilauea and see how much of a difference it makes to Kilauea if you’re pasty-assed and rich!
