Births of Babies in Unlikely Places — Or the Grinch Who Impeded Gay/Lesbian Equality
By : James Nimmo - Monday December 24, 2007
1 comment
By James Nimmo During this winter solstice time in America some of you will consider again the birth of babies in unlikely places, such as a particular middle-eastern stable during the Roman era approximately 2,000 years ago. And while reading about the 2007 Sissy Awards at www.advocate.com I got to thinking about another unlikely birth place, a particular lesbian womb of the early 21st century. The animal stable birth is well publicized by the anecdotal writings of the Middle Eastern (...)

FRANCE / A Look into the Muslim Headscarf Hysteria

y Laila Lalami, The Nation A kind of aggression." "A successor to the Berlin Wall." "A lever in the long power struggle between democratic values and fundamentalism." "An insult to education." "A terrorist operation." These descriptions — by former French President Jacques Chirac; economist Jacques Attali; and philosophers Bernard-Henri Lévy, Alain Finkielkraut and André Glucksmann — do not refer to the next great menace to human civilization but rather to the Muslim (...)

Why We Shouldn’t Celebrate Thanksgiving
By : Harry - Thursday November 22, 2007
By Robert JENSEN Thanksgiving Day should be turned into a National Day of Atonement to acknowledge the genocide of America’s indigenous peoples. After years of being constantly annoyed and often angry about the historical denial built into Thanksgiving Day, I published an essay in November 2005 suggesting we replace the feasting with fasting and create a National Day of Atonement to acknowledge the genocide of indigenous people that is central to the creation of the United States. (...)

Australian Election: Bush-ite Media IGNORE Iraqi Genocide, Afghan Genocide & Aboriginal Genocide
By : Dr Gideon Polya - Saturday November 3, 2007
Australia is in the middle of a Federal Election campaign but to the best of my knowledge the Australia-complicit carnage in Occupied Iraq – the Iraqi Holocaust, the Iraqi Genocide - has not simply NOT been aired by Australian Mainstream media, the ABC or politicians in a process of egregious and remorseless holocaust-ignoring and genocide-ignoring. This holocaust ignoring in Australia (the Land of Lies and Flies) is so sustained and comprehensive that it amounts to utterly repugnant (...)

The late scholar and author W.E.B. DuBois once wrote, “The problem of the Twentieth Century is the problem of the color-line.” Sadly, it is also the problem of the Twenty-First Century as demonstrated by a majority of so-called “justices” on the current United States Supreme Court whose racism is so blatant they had the audacity to cite the case of Brown vs. Topeka, which outlawed racial segregation in public schools, to reinstitute racial segregation in public (...)

Emmett Till was 14 when he was beaten to death in Mississippi back in 1955. He had supposedly whistled at a white woman but that minor offense carried a death sentence.

SEVEN THOUSAND Lashes and Twenty Blows to the Head
By : James Nimmo - Wednesday October 10, 2007
SEVEN THOUSAND Lashes and Twenty Blows to the Head By James Nimmo (OKLAHOMA CITY) As we approach the ninth anniversary of the death of Matthew Shepard (October 12, 1998) it’s neither sentimental nor maudlin but realistic to reflect on two festering sores that have finally broken open this past month in the Congress. Their maturation has been a long time reaching this point but I’m afraid suppuration will begin again from the re-infection and contamination by the (...)

by Wayne Besen It was the oddest event in my fifteen-year activism career. I had ventured to Orlando, Florida last summer to attend the National Education Association’s annual meeting. Crashing the conference was the so-called "Ex-Gay Educators Caucus," a sham organization run primarily by anti-gay lobbyists, who are attempting to get the viewpoints of "former homosexuals" into public schools. To counter their presence, I staged a press conference outside the huge convention center. (...)

A Hero Gets His Due

Ghost Dance

Ghost Dance By David Glenn Cox When the Teton Sioux nation surrendered in 1876-77 they were promised that they could maintain sovereignty on their land.

They could choose only the leaders that met with Washington’s approval. They could set only policies (...)

The renewed anti-Muslim media campaign is partly driven by a political agenda which seeks to justify war Seumas Milne Thursday September 20, 2007 The Guardian Britons are now more suspicious of Muslims than are Americans or citizens of any other major western European country, including France. According to an international Harris poll last month, nearly 30% of British people believe it’s impossible to be both a Muslim and a Briton (compared with 14% who think you can’t be (...)

The difference between Black and White in the United States: Jena 6 vs. a White family of 6

What is happening with the Jena 6 is reminding us all about the times when Slavery was the Law and Lynching Blacks the norm in the United States of America. An “all-white jury, promptly convicted” a black teenager “of aggravated second degree assault, battery and conspiracy,” for beating a white kid. This high school student is now awaiting “sentencing which may put the teenager in prison for the next 22 years.” Five of the remaining black kids are (...)

Warren Throckmorton - Dr. Blog
By : Wayne Besen - Saturday August 25, 2007
by Wayne Besen Every now and again, a snake will show its fangs. Case in point is Dr. Warren Throckmorton, one of America’s leading "ex-gay" therapists. Last week, a Nebraska-based website so obscure it was inaccessible by popular search engines such as Google, was discovered by right wing activists. What the website had to say was quite disturbing. "Without GSA [gay straight alliance] access, students are forced to simply kill classmates who taunt & bully - shooting, (...)

If it had been called Kosher Pigs there would have been a tremendous outcry from the international Jewish community and Blogger would have been forced to close it down without further ado.

Channel Four, producers of the "investigative" programme, Dispatches, have been reported to the industry regulator, Ofcom, by the West Midlands police for undermining community cohesion by misreporting the words of a Muslim preacher at the Birmingham Green Lane mosque. The preacher, an American Muslim, Abu Usamah, is reported by C4 as having made several racist and homophobic remarks. These, Abu Usamah says, were all taken out of context and, after examining over 50 hours of footage, the (...)

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy. The situation on the ground is not as simple as pro-EU and trade versus pro-Putin and Russian hegemony in the region. When US Senator John McCain dined with Ukraine’s opposition leaders in December, he shared a table and later a stage with the leader of the extreme far-right Svoboda party Oleh Tyahnybok. This is Oleh Tyahnybok, he has claimed a "Moscow-Jewish mafia" (...)

I’VE DECIDED TO "WASTE" MY VOTE
Sunday 28 October
by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

PART I PART II PART III If there is one major inconsistency in life, it is that young people who know little more than family, friends and school are suddenly, at the age of eighteen, supposed to decide what they want to do for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately, because of their limited life experiences, the illusions they have about certain occupations do not always comport to the realities. I discovered this the first time I went to college. About a year into my studies, I (...)

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

How much corruption can a “democracy” endure before it ceases to be a democracy? If five venal, mendacious, duplicitous, amoral, biased and (dare I say it) satanic Supreme Court “justices”—John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Anthony Kennedy—have their way, America will soon find out. In several previous articles for Pravda.Ru, I have consistently warned how the Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United decision is one of the (...)

A question I’ve frequently been asked since I began writing for Pravda.Ru in 2003 is, “Why did you become disillusioned with the practice of law?” This question is understandable, particularly since, in most people’s minds, being an attorney is synonymous with wealth and political power. I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
