Crooked FIFA official blames 'the Jews' for his downfall

Former FIFA vice-president Jack Warner has blamed Zionism for the circumstances that led to him and former Asian Football Confederation chief Mohammed Bin Hammam being forced out of world football.

Warner, 68, resigned from FIFA after ethics investigations were begun into a meeting he held with Bin Hammam where FIFA say payments were made to Caribbean soccer officials ahead of the election for FIFA president in June.

Qatari Bin Hammam was handed a lifetime ban by FIFA for his role in the affair while a number of Caribbean officials were given suspensions last week.

Bin Hammam was not immediately available for comment.

Trinadadian Warner says in a letter to the Trinidad Guardian, which will be published in full on Tuesday, he intends to speak out on the affair and highlighted who he felt was to blame for his downfall.

"I will talk about the Zionism, which probably is the most important reason why this acrid attack on Bin Hammam and me was mounted," Warner told the newspaper...

Today is the great Christopher Lee's birthday!

 Happy 93rd, Sir Chris!
...He's the only person to play both Sherlock and Mycroft Holmes (he was also Sir Henry Baskerville). His characters have executed both Charles the First of England and Louis the Sixteenth of France (and, as a badass side note, Lee is so into the idea of public executions that in real life he can recite every official executioner in England since the 15th century). He's portrayed Englishmen, Egyptians, Spaniards, Transylvanians, Frenchmen, Greeks, Poles, Chinese, Indians, Italians, Wallachians, Romans, Germans, Arabs, Gypsies, and Russians, played the lead role in the biography of Mohammad Ali Jinnah, the founder of Pakistan, speaks English, German, Russian, Swedish, Italian, and French, can do any English accent he wants, and sings everything from opera and death metal in a hardcore bass voice. IMDB credits him with 274 acting roles, Guiness says he's appeared in more films than anyone ever, and the Oracle of Bacon lists him as the Center of the Hollywood Universe because anyone in history links to him in 2.59 steps (he links to Bacon in 1). If that's not enough, Lee's movies have grossed more than any actor ever – his top five alone grossed $4.4B (number two is Harrison ford with $3B) and that doesn't even include the new Hobbit stuff and whatever the fuck else he's got in the works. He's such a veteran pro that he filmed every single scene in Star Wars 3 in a single day, and even though he's never received a Best Actor nomination he's been in 4 movies nominated for Best Picture and he can rest assured that even the shittiest movie of his career is probably a fuck of a lot more entertaining than The English Patient...

From a Metal album Christopher Lee released on his 90th birthday:

"Social Justice" Wankers discover musical genre that refers to women as "bitches and hoes" might be misogynistic

There's a new "Social Justice" campaign to get a rapper who goes by the name of Action Bronson kicked out of Toronto music festival NXNE because of his songs' "violent misogyny."

I never heard of Action Bronson before today, but I checked out a few of his videos and find them totally inane. But that's what I expected.

Most people could probably figure out there were going to be some references to violent, grisly, disgusting imagery from someone who put out a Rap album called "Dr. Lecter" referencing the cannibal from Silence of the Lambs and featuring songs like "Brunch" and "Get off my P.P."

There might be, just maybe, a dozen rap songs I can stomach hearing more than once. As a musical genre, with only a few exceptions, like some Run DMC, some early NWA, the original Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, and a few other examples, I find Rap to be almost completely asinine.

But what rap is, and the pervasiveness of misogyny and glorification of violence that runs through the entire genre is no secret. It's a genre with with hit songs by stars like Dr. Dre called "Bitches Ain't Shit." One of Rap's best known stars, Eminem, wrote a song in which he threatened to rape Iggy Azalea.  I find it repugnant, so I don't buy it, don't listen to it, and in the unlikely event I ever become Prime Minister, I won't be having Dr. Dre or Charlie Angus performing any rap songs at the after-party following my swearing in.

All this begs the question, Where have these idiot Social Justice Wankers been the last 30 years?

Banning something they don't like, rather than choosing to ignore it, is the deplorable natural instinct of the Social Justice Wanker.

If you don't like Action Bronson or what he stands for, don't attend his concerts. An Action Bronson concert that only attracts a handful of people will put him out of business faster and more effectively than a petition trying to ban him for being offensive.

But then, that would deny the Social Justice Wankers their supreme joy of dictating to other people how to live.

Iran: Why trial of Washington Post reporter should raise red flags about proposed nuclear deal

Tuesday a revolutionary court in Tehran began trying Washington Post Iran correspondent Jason Rezaian on charges of espionage. Rezaian, who has already been held for more than ten months, is but one of four American hostages which the Islamic Republic holds.
Former FBI agent Robert Levinson just passed his 3,000th day in Iranian prison.
Monday, on Memorial Day, retired U.S. Marine Amir Hekmati spent his 1,367thday in an Iranian prison. He was picked up by security in Tehran while visiting his grandmother. His visit was not careless; he had secured permission from the Iranian Interest Section in Washington, D.C., before making his trip.
The fourth hostage is Saeed Abedini, an Iranian-American pastor from Idaho whom Iranian authorities arrested in 2012 while he, too, was visiting family...

Contemporary Western Society Is The Real Suicide Cult

Those who sanctimoniously denigrate Islam as a Death Cult or Suicide Cult point to some of that religion's tenets regarding jihad, and the supposed rewards for 'martyrdom' in the hereafter which encourage extremists to imagine death preferable to life.

However, if you compare western culture as a whole to Islamic cultures over the last two decades, it is abundantly clear that the west, and not Islam, is the one that has become dedicated to self-eradication.

Suicide bombing may poll moderately well worldwide among Muslims, yet in reality only a very, very tiny percentage of Muslims think highly enough of the practice to strap on explosives and fragmentize themselves, hoping to reassemble and deflower 72 virgins in the Great Beyond.

Notwithstanding the numerically insignificant few who blow themselves up, neither suicide nor lack of confidence are Islamic cultural flaws. Islam, as a culture, is self-affirming to the extent of exaggerating its achievements, and is supremely confident in its merits, righteousness, and ultimate conquest of the world.

On the other hand, we in the West, as a matter of cultural norm, have adopted institutional practices designed to belittle ourselves, denigrate our highest achievements, disparage our military strength and service, curse our cultural values, and appease anyone who finds us offensive.

No Islamic society is that suicidal.

Islamists are building armies and honoring those who are willing to die for their beliefs, while we mock and insult those among us brave enough to risk their lives in service of our values.

Madrassas throughout Pakistan, Iran, Indonesia, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, and dozens of other Muslim-majority countries, as well as Saudi and Iranian-funded Islamic schools in the west, aren't teaching their children that Islam is decadent and oppressive and needs reform, as we are in western education. They're teaching their children that they are vastly morally superior to the decadent west, and that the spread of Islam throughout the world is the only true way to achieve justice.

Islam's leaders also have the wisdom to take the long-view, which is vastly strategically superior to the shortsightedness of the west.

The leaders of Islamist terror movements like ISIS, Hamas, al Qaida, Hezbollah and the Taliban don't tell their followers that if they fail to achieve all their goals in a few years, then they should cut and run. Their timeline for success isn't in months, or years, or even decades. They are looking ahead in terms of generations and centuries.

To win in conflict, whether it be military or cultural, nation building is essential. If, at the end of World War 2, the western allies had not dedicated enough resources and determination to the rebuilding of Germany and Japan, a Nazi Fourth Reich and a resurgence of Imperial Japanese militarism almost certainly would have emerged from the vacuum left behind. It took years of perseverance to ensure that the victory over the Axis powers in the Second World War was not undone and even today, 70 years later, there are still dozens of US military bases in Germany and Japan.

But after a total military victory in Iraq that cost less in western human lives than a couple of bad hours in any single major battle in World War One, our stupidity and lack of foresight has led us to abandon Iraq to totalitarians. That's because we became impatient that after all of ten years, during which the US allowed Iran to exert major influence there, Iraq didn't miraculously turn into a Swiss-style democracy .

This should surprise no one.  While the questioning and reform of society in order to correct injustices is laudable and something we must pursue, we have morphed into a culture that fetishizes self-deprecation, self-criticism and self-destruction for our perceived sins. This coincides with the adoption of a moral relativism that can endure no serious criticism of any culture except our own.

Islamists are forcing Yazidi women to become sex slaves and are raping them in the thousands, and our "Social Justice" activists cannot bring themselves to utter a single negative word about the religious ideology that drives the barbarian hordes of ISIS.  But when the fictional character Sansa Stark is make-believe raped on the medieval fantasy TV show Game of Thrones, our Social Justice Jihadists literally become insensible with rage and take it as proof that hatred of women is pervasive in our society.

The difference between Islamic suicide bombers and western Social Justice Jihadists is that the suicide bomber is killing a few people to serve the aims of his society, whereas the typical Social Justice Jihadist is trying to tear down our society to improve his or her own personal self-esteem.

We in the west live in the wealthiest, most equitable, most technologically and socially advanced civilization in the history of the world. We act like there's no way that civilization could move backwards.  Yet history teaches it can.

Romans in the Fifth Century thought exactly the same way as people dominating cultural and educational policy in the contemporary west.. The Western Roman Empire, prior to its destruction, became a multicultural society that allowed its military prowess to deteriorate, while surrounded by supposedly backwards Goths, Vandals and Visigoths who determinedly built their forces for generations following their defeats by the armies of the great Caesars. Roman leaders became so overconfident in their own superiority and ignorant of the lessons of history that they weakened the empire to the point that made its downfall inevitable, while thinking that if they were 'nice' to their enemies, they would leave Rome alone.

They didn't. The barbarians conquered Rome and it took the world over a thousand years to regain the technological and cultural advancements that the Romans had achieved.

As the Visigoths and Vandals sought the destruction of Rome, Islamists seek the destruction of the decadent western infidel culture. And our western, so-called "Social Justice" activists are doing everything they can to suppress criticism of those who want to conquer us.

So which is really the "Suicide Cult?"

Poll says majority of Canadians see Omar Khadr as a threat

A majority of Canadians see convicted terrorist Omar Khadr as a threat to Canada.
A poll of 1,514 Canadians conducted by Angus Reid found that 55% agree that Khadr "remains a potential radicalized threat" while 45% disagree with that statement.
A majority of Canadians in all regions, with the exception of British Columbia, felt Khadr remains a threat. Men were slightly more likely than women to see Khadr as a threat (57 to 54% respectively) and Canadians over 35 viewed Khadr as a great threat than Canadians under 35.
Among political party supporters, Conservatives (73%) were most likely to view Omar Khadr as a threat compared to NDP supporters (44%) and Liberal voters (39%).
Liberal voters were also more likely to support the court ruling that freed Khadr on bail while he appeals his conviction on war crimes before a US court.

U of Michigan football coach Jim Harbaugh meets with aggrieved Muslim students over American Sniper tweet

Michigan football coach Jim Harbaugh met with Middle Eastern, North African, Muslim and South Asian students in a private meeting in the Michigan Union on Wednesday to discuss the University’s April screening of the movie “American Sniper,” a film based on the autobiography of former U.S. Navy Seal Chris Kyle.

E-mails obtained by the Daily sent Tuesday to listservs for various student organizations — including Students Allied for Freedom and Equality, the Middle East and Arab Network, the Arab Students Association, the South Asian Awareness Network, Michigan Pakistanis, and Muslim, Lebanese, Malaysian and Persian students — announced plans for the meeting. The e-mails said several students requested the meeting in response to a tweet Harbaugh sent April 8 regarding the movie.

“Michigan Football will watch ‘American Sniper’! Proud of Chris Kyle & Proud to be an American & if that offends anybody then so be it!” the tweet read.

Harbaugh’s tweet came amid national media coverage of the Center for Campus Involvement’s April 7 announcementthat it would cancel the movie’s screening scheduled for April 10’s UMix. The CCI said it made the decision in response to a student petition that raised concerns about how the film portrays Arabs, Muslims, the Middle East and North Africa.

However, following another student-generated petition calling for the University to reverse this decision, E. Royster Harper, vice president for student life, issued a statement April 8 saying, “the initial decision was not consistent with the high value the University of Michigan places on freedom of expression and our respect for the right of students to make their own choices in such matters.”...
