Draft Dodger Commander-In-Chief Demands U.S. Military Parade!

 

That is rich, literally! I mean, mostly it was the rich who got out of heading over to Vietnam to get killed or sprayed with Agent Orange while using ‘liquid fire'(napalm) on the innocent Vietnamese.

Now enters Donald Trump, a screaming and a wailing for a massive military parade to honor the U.S. military. So, now that he can no longer get drafted, this draft dodging coward wants to honor the very military that he refused to be drafted into since he claimed four college deferments and one ‘heel spur’ deferment. My! My! My! Yep, mostly it is the idle rich who  could get away with avoiding any kind of ‘unpleasantness’ that might get in the way of their living a lavish lifestyle at the expense of the poor.

How it even makes sense that this draft dodger actually became the Commander-In-Chief of the very military he fought, tooth and nail, to never have to serve in, should just be beyond the realm of understanding on any level. The claim is that Draft-Dodger-In-Chief, Donald Trump, witnessed a French military parade and suddenly developed this nostalgic idea. It had to be nostalgia right? I mean, since he almost served, but thanks to four college deferments and a heel spur, he didn’t have to? Right?

The Draft-Dodger-In-Chief did not get hit with a ton of deep, unrelenting shame over the fact that his non-existent heel spur got him out of going to fight in a war for love of country. Oh, no, never that! France was hosting a military parade while Trump looked on and voila! The idea just suddenly popped into Tweet Brain Trump, better known on Twitter as Dim Tweet Trump who, despite the logistics and cost of hosting this type of parade,  is remaining insistent that this military parade should come to pass. The rest of the world should get a clue of how bad ass America’s military is. Newsflash! The rest of the world is very much aware of the U.S. military especially seeing as how there are over 700 military bases stationed all across this planet and Americans are most definitely aware of the U.S. military since we pay ‘mightily’ for that military through our tax dollars to the detriment of our roads and bridges, environment, food and water and safety net programs.

Here’s an idea! Since billionaire, Draft-Dodger-In-Chief, Donald Trump, wants a military parade so bad, present him with an estimated bill for this military parade and tell him that he will be responsible for this extravaganza and see how fast his enthusiasm dries up. It will dry up almost as fast as his enthusiasm for love of country dried up upon expecting to receive his draft papers. College was just too good to be true at a time when it was most needed and then when that no longer served its purpose, enter ‘heel spur’. I am quite sure that many poor men who were drafted wished they had known just how easy it would be to get their names erased off the draft list if they had just ‘developed’ a heel spur and so could lie back and enjoy the good life of having some other poor schmuck fill in for them.

What a difference in the treatment Muhammad Ali received when he refused to be drafted. Muhammad Ali was stripped of his world heavyweight title for refusing to join the army in 1967, his boxing license was suspended during his peak years for boxing, he was arrested, convicted by ‘no jury of his peers’, but by an ‘all-white’ jury and jailed for refusing to get drafted based on religious reasons. Muhammad Ali stated that, “The draft is about white people sending Black people to fight yellow people to protect a country they stole from the red people,” and “The real enemy of my people is here (in America). I will not disgrace my religion, my people or myself by becoming a tool to enslave those who are fighting for their own justice, freedom and equality. If I thought the war was going to bring freedom and equality to 22 million of my people, they wouldn’t have to draft me, I’d join tomorrow. I have nothing to lose by standing up for my beliefs. So I’ll go to jail, so what? We’ve been in jail for four hundred years.”

I have much respect for Muhammad Ali for standing up for his beliefs while Donald Trump’s only belief was that he was just too rich and white and important to have his worthless hide sent over to Vietnam to die and for what? Certainly not for love of country by ‘virtue’ of military service because if he ‘loved his country’, no heel spur or college education could have kept him from insisting that he be sent to fight in Vietnam. And yet, this draft dodger, with the most dangerous and deadly disease ever to exist, ‘heel spur’ disease, would go on to eventually become the Commander-In-Chief of the very military that he was scared too shitless to be drafted into. This Draft-Dodger-In-Chief, Donald Trump, goes beyond hypocritical when espousing on how much reverence he has for the very military of which he insisted that a heel spur must keep him out of. How in the world can that draft dodger look himself in the mirror if he had one ounce of shame, guilt or embarrassment and yet, he exudes nothing but bravado when speaking of the U.S. military as if it it actually has personal meaning to him.

We should ALL have died  from the sheer shame of it, the shame of having a draft-dodger as Commander-In-Chief of the most murdering and depraved military on the face of this planet! And yet, we have no shame because not one word has been said about how much of an atrocity it is that this coward, who was so hellbent on never seeing a day of military service, actually feigned a piddling little medical diagnosis just to get out of doing so after having exhausted all college deferments, IS the Commander-In-Chief of that very same military.

Donald Trump’s ‘dedicated NON service’ to his country reads as follows:

Back in 1968, at the age of 22, Donald J. Trump seemed the picture of health.

He stood 6 feet 2 inches with an athletic build; had played football, tennis and squash; and was taking up golf. His medical history was unblemished, aside from a routine appendectomy when he was 10.

But after he graduated from college in the spring of 1968, making him eligible to be drafted and sent to Vietnam, he received a diagnosis that would change his path: bone spurs in his heels.

The [heel spur] diagnosis resulted in a coveted 1-Y medical deferment that fall, exempting him from military service as the United States was undertaking huge troop deployments to Southeast Asia, inducting about 300,000 men into the military that year.

The deferment was one of five Mr. Trump received during Vietnam. The others were for education.

That was then!

Today, well now, that’s another story!

[Draft Dodger-In-Chief], Donald Trump is incredibly supportive of America’s great service members who risk their lives every day to keep our country safe. He has asked the Department of Defense to explore a celebration at which all Americans can show their appreciation,” White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said.

Of course, Donald Trump is supportive of the military NOW! Yes indeed, all the rich white hypocrites, along with the biggest rich white hypocrite of all, the Draft Dodger-In-Chief, Donald J. Trump, can now press for the urgency of a military parade so that they can all express smug satisfaction over the fact that they, like Donald Trump, received deferments instead of draft notifications and so did not put their life on the line for a country built on the premise that “All men are created equal.” What a load of bullshit! Those who have don’t have to fight. Those who have not, have to fight! And you can be a draft dodger and still get to enjoy the status of Commander-In-Chief of the U.S. military, if you’re white, that is.

Ain’t life grand for the rich white man?!

In Memory Of Muhammad Ali Who Refused To Shed Someone’s Blood He Did Not Know!

Famous Muhammad Ali quotes

Blood Will Always Flow!

I look down at the weapon that I hold in my own hand,
standing over a lifeless body in a strange and foreign land.

I just took a life and I don’t even care!
But on my daughter’s head, I would not harm a hair.

What difference should it make and how could I ever kill?
And yet I look down at you and in death, you lie so still.

I stand here blaming you for the cause of your own death
and never think that who I kill for are those who hold the wealth.

They say that I am a soldier and that what I do is right.
I just go to the wars they start and then I begin to fight.

What use is there in wondering if it’s me who’s in the wrong.
I know that what I do ain’t right and I’ve known it all along.

But you see, it’s just a job to me, it’s not personal at all.
Remember, I’m just a soldier and your death was not my call.

If I take the fight to you, then you won’t bring it here.
They control us with their lies and say it’s you that we should fear.

You are dead and I’m alive but for how long I do not know.
The war machine continues on and someone’s blood will always flow.

Muhammad Ali refused to allow himself to become a tool to be used for rich ‘white’ men to kill for the sake of killing; to be used as a tool for the empire to continuously steal, rape, pillage, plunder and decimate, running roughshod over sovereign nations when he and his people were subjected to the same right here in AmeriKKKa.

He could not even eat in a restaurant. He could only listen to “We don’t serve Negroes in here!” And yet, AmeriKKKa wanted him to fight and DIE for THAT? Seriously? If only those who had allowed themselves to be dragged off to fight no enemy of theirs, if only they too, had stood up to this vicious, evil and corrupt stolen nation, maybe, just maybe…we wouldn’t still be toppling rulers of sovereign nations to this very day.

Barack Obama should have burst into flames upon speaking Muhammad Ali’s name especially since his Administration has launched more wars and drone struck more innocent people AND hospitals since George Bush’s illegal war in Iraq.

Barack Obama had this to say, “His fight outside the ring would cost him his title and his public standing.  It would earn him enemies on the left and the right, make him reviled, and nearly send him to jail.  But Ali stood his ground.  And his victory helped us get used to the America we recognize today.”

Is this clown for real? “And his(Muhammad Ali)victory helped us get used to the America we recognize today.”

The America of today is the reason Libya is on fire. The America of today is the reason Yemen is on fire. The America of today is the reason Iraq is STILL on fire! The America of today is the reason Afghanistan is on fire. The America of today is the reason Syria is on fire and the cold war has re-ignited and American troops are stationed all over the world. American CIA agents trained ‘terrorists’ and let them loose on the Middle East, bringing chaos, pandemonium, bedlam and death to that region. America is responsible for the neo-Nazi mess in Ukraine and Obama wants to ‘drone’ on and on about “And his victory helped us get used to the America we recognize today?” Muhammad Ali was against everything that Barack Insane Obama stands for. That lying piece of hypocritical filth has no right to even whisper Muhammad Ali’s name because Obama would have been attempting to have Ali locked up for refusing to be drafted. Don’t think so? Then why is Chelsea Manning rotting in prison for exposing war crimes? Why is Edward Snowden in exile in Russia for exposing the spying done on a massive scale against innocent American citizens? Because Muhammad Ali’s victory helped us get used to the America we recognize today? Hell if that is so! Because if what Muhammad Ali was about had caught on, we would be looking at an entirely different scenario of what IS the America of today.

Obama couldn’t even care less about Veterans because I just read that “VA Chief likens veteran care wait times to Disney park lines..” This is a disgrace! And yet again, Obama ‘drones’ on and on about how he ‘thanks’ the military for their service even while knowing that many are dying before they can even be seen at a VA hospital or clinic and that the number of suicides of enlisted service men and of veterans is skyrocketing.

This liar-in-chief has the unmitigated gall to weigh in on Muhammad Ali’s contribution to the anti-war effort? Unbelievable!

And apparently, Obama has yet to read this report.

Suicide surpassed war as the military’s leading cause of death

War was the leading cause of death in the military nearly every year between 2004 and 2011 until suicides became the top means of dying for troops in 2012 and 2013, according to a bar chart published this week in a monthly Pentagon medical statistical analysis journal.

For those last two years, suicide outranked war, cancer, heart disease, homicide, transportation accidents and other causes as the leading killer, accounting for about three in 10 military deaths each of those two years.

Muhammad Ali, thank you for being all too human and for looking into your own children’s eyes, knowing that if you could not harm a hair on their head, how could you turn around and harm a hair on the son or daughter of another’s child. Thank you for showing us just what true ‘humanity’ is all about because believe me, too many of us have no clue! Thank you and peace be yours, finally!

Muhammad Ali Said It Best! “I Ain’t Got No Quarrel With Those Vietcong!”

Muhammad Ali

 

 

As we all know, boxing legend, Muhammad Ali has died. He was 74. And though, I am not a fan of boxing, nor any contact sport for that matter, I hold Muhammad Ali in high esteem for the fact that he refused to let himself get drafted to fight no enemy of his. At least he stood up for his principles against a country that has never held a valid and undisputable claim on championing the rights of her Negro citizens. So, why would we fight for this country? We should not and Muhammad Ali made no bones about the fact that he would not go to Vietnam and fight against people he had no quarrel with.

Another fact, Muhammad Ali was all about staying true to his Negro heritage. He was not into intermingling and erasing our culture. He said it best again when he said,

“We are different. We are not the same. Blue birds fly with blue birds. Red birds fly with red birds, pigeons want to be with pigeons, the eagles like to hang out in the mountains, while the buzzards like to fly around in the desert. They each want to be with their own.” And when told that this should not apply to people because we have more intelligence than birds, Muhammad Ali replied, “they have the intelligence to want to stay together and we should have more intelligence than them. They’re all birds but they’ve got different cultures. I’d rather be with my own and have a beautiful daughter, a beautiful wife that looks like me and we’re all happy and I don’t have to worry about any trouble resulting from an interracial marriage. Every intelligent person should want their child to look like them. I’m sad because I want to blot out my race and lose my beautiful identity? No! Chinese love Chinese. Pakistanis love their culture. Jewish people love their culture. A lot of Catholics want to marry another Catholic. They want the religion to stay the same. Who would want to spot up yourself and kill your race? You’re a hater of your people if you don’t want to stay true to who you are. You’re ashamed of what ‘god’ made you? ‘God’ didn’t make no mistake. No woman can talk to me, cook for me and please me like a Black American woman, no woman! And the last is a ‘white’ woman that can identify with my feelings and with the way I talk. And you can’t take no Chinese man and give him a Puerto Rican woman and holler about we in love, emotionally and physically when really they’re not happy because she’s going to hear some Puerto Rican music, he’s going to hear some Chinese music and they’re going to be clashing all the time. It’s just nature. You can do what you want, but it’s nature to want to be with your own. I want to be with my own.”-Muhammad Ali excerpt from an interview with the BBC November 1971.

I could not agree more with you Muhammad Ali as no one but my own would get me. And I certainly cannot get with those who have oppressed people who look like me every single chance they get and I am to expect to receive love from them? Get real! Those of you who go in for interracial marriage are making the mistake of your lives. You are not adding to your culture. You are destroying it and that is why this interracial mess is touted at every opportunity. If they cannot wipe us out of existence one way, they’ll damn sure as hell try another. And you are helping them along with this. You are a traitor to your people and no sista or brotha of mine, believe that! I denounce that stupid mess and you!

Muhammad Ali did not say things to make people feel good and to be politically correct. He spoke from his own perspective and from his own life experiences. When after having won the Gold at the Olympics, he came back to AmeriKKKa, thought that he would be welcomed in restaurants that he had previously been denied entrance, only to find out that that gold that he won ‘for’ AmeriKKKa, meant nothing because even gold could not compete against the color of his skin. He put his suit on and went to a restaurant, sat down and the waitress came over and said, “We don’t serve Negroes in here!” Ali responded, “I don’t eat them either. Bring me some coffee and a hotdog!” They put him out. And people have the nerve to take exception to his comments about integration and interracial marriage? You have got to be kidding.

Unfortunately for me, I did not know any of this until I read up on Muhammad Ali after reading about his death. I watched videos of interviews given by him and he mirrors my thoughts exactly on so many issues, it is unreal. He even made the point of why is everything connected with ‘good’,’white’. Everything, he said, that is associated with purity is white; “why is the ‘Lord’s’ supper ALL white men? Angels are ‘white’ the Pope’ , Santa Claus, GEEZUS, Snow White, Mary had a little lamb and its feet were ‘white as snow'” and so forth and so on. He said that he asked his mama would he get to go to heaven and his mama said yes and he responded, “but where are all the Black angels? If the ‘white’ folks are up in heaven, then the Black angels are in the kitchen preparing the ‘milk and honey'” He said, “Tarzan is the king of the jungle in Africa and he was always ‘white’ and yet Tarzan was talking to the animals and the Black people had been there for centuries and couldn’t talk with the animals. Also everything was white, White Rain shampoo, White Cloud toilet paper, an ‘angel’ food cake is white but the ‘devil’s food cake was the ‘chocolate’ cake and the president lives in the ‘White House’ but everything that was bad was associated with Black; the little ugly duckling was a ‘black’ duckling, and the ‘Black’ cat was the bad luck and if I threatened you, I’m going to ‘Blackmale’ you, and he said, “mama, why don’t they call it ‘whitemale’, they lie too?”

And we have the audacity to take up what Caucasians put down and run with it. How the hell can you expect shits that view you as evil to have anything ‘good’ attached to their ass? They cannot and they do not! You worship the same false idols as they do. Your ‘god’ is also blond-haired and blue-eyed.  Their ‘god’ is just as fictitious as the saying, “A ‘white’ man is a ‘good’ man.”You will live beside the Caucasians in mansions in the sky when they don’t even want you to live beside them on this god forsaken planet?! What the hell is wrong with you? You have your children paying homage to another fat white fictitious bastard in a red suit and he is the one who is bringing YOUR children, their toys? Are you serious? As hard as you work and for less pay than they receive?! And then I have the nerve to wonder why the Negro race in AmeriKKKa is in such trouble. With the shit that you take up and run with, it is no wonder! People like Muhammad Ali tried to school you fools on exactly how it is and still you wouldn’t listen and to this very day, you don’t listen. But will wonder instead, why you’re fucked up! Keep wondering because your willful ignorance will lead to your demise which is what the Caucasian is after any way, but you’re hell bent on helping his cause along, aren’t you? Indeed, you dumbasses are! Our demise benefits the Caucasian in every way because our blood is stronger than his. You can’t figure out that this is why he wants it weakened? And the reasons for all the experimentation on you that goes even further back than the Tuskegee Syphilis Experiment. You can’t figure out why the Caucasian invented AIDS? You have no clue, do you? Again, it is because OUR blood is stronger than his. And he cannot have that! Why do you think Bill Gates’ ass is funding experiments in Africa? It ain’t for the good of the Africans and that is for damn sure. Why do you think the Red Cross is so prominent in Africa? They are not there to help! Why do you think AmeriKKKa has sent the U.S. military to Africa? Again, it ain’t to help, that’s for damn sure! Yeah! Keep on sitting back and taking this shit up the ass and you will find your ass handed to you!

Now, some of you may think that what Muhammad Ali said was quite funny, but it is SO not because what Muhammad Ali said is quite true and it still rings true today. Don’t think so? Just take a look around. Negro people are still perceived as the ‘bad element’ when in reality we ALL know that the very last thing the Caucasian is synonymous with is ‘good’. Ain’t a damn thing ‘good’ about you and that is a fact and Muhammad Ali knew this and made no bones about his knowledge of that fact.

Muhammad Ali, I wish you “bon voyage”! Be at rest and at peace for you have earned it and thank you for speaking these truths and likewise, they are just as relevant today as they were decades ago when you spoke them! More’s the goddamn pity!

At Least Sterling’s Slaves Get Bank!

shocked about racism

And you thought racism was dead?
Who dropped you on your head?

At least Sterling’s slaves get bank.
Just what the fuck’s your rank?

And you call yourself, “a pro!”
You ain’t nothing but a ho!

You sell yourself each day,
as you watch your soul decay.

In the ring, you’re knocked about,
’cause there ain’t no other way out.

You’re like Muhammad Ali.
who got stung by Massa’s bee.

You’re just a puppet on Massa’s string
who will bend and kiss his ring.

He made you president,
another White House resident.

You think that slavery’s gone?
You’re still ole Massa’s pawn.

He shoves us back and forth.
It’s the same if you head north.

You can’t escape the bonds of hate.
Massa’s got such tempting bait.

Massa owns just everything.
You can’t fly with a broken wing.

Massa can cut you down to size.
If you lose, you get no prize.

That’s the way it’s always been
Massa just looks on with a grin.

78 percent
According to racial equality activist Richard Lapchick, the NBA in 2011 was composed of 78 percent black players, 17 percent whites, four percent Latinos, and one percent Asian. The league had by far the highest percentage of black players of any major professional sports leagues in the United States and Canada.
