Well actually speaking politely wiith due respect and reverence for life…. I think a molotov magnum 93 octane would be more appropriate. Let the punishment fit the crime.

The english boobies are calling them asians now. I’ve heard of color blindness but maybe they think they’ve been invaded by mongols.July 31, 2017 at 2:28 am #52143
Brulen, you must understand that somebody from Lebanon is “the same” as somebody from Japan, Mongolia, North Korea, etc., don’tchaknow!!! The “Middle East” is now solidly classified as part of Asia. It’s interesting that older, especially more ancient maps (1700s, for example), don’t show the Middle East as part of Asia, but as we’ve gotten more and more “enlightened” in the “modern” world, we now are wise enough to just hook ‘em all together, and call that just one big continent. I’m certain the tectonic plate boundaries are absolutely along political boundaries, of course. So, yes, in today’s modern vernacular, an Armenian, Turk or Lebanese is continentally equivalent to a Vietnamese or Filipino. But an Egyptian is an AFRICAN, don’tchaknow! Never mind that they’re right across the dune from the Saudis. And don’t you dare try to classify the Egyptians in with the Israelis – those Israelis are part of Asia, just like their brethren in Iran and India. C’mon, man! Get your politically correct geography straight! LOL Anything to keep from callin’ ‘em Arabs or Muslims! They’re just like those continental cousins only a short drive away in the Philippines!
Want a really good fight, though? Try calling an Iranian an Arab or camel driver. You’ll instantly get, with great emphasis both verbally and bodily, “I am PERSIAN. I am NOT Arab!!!!!!” (Nothing like a good squabble between Asians. )
(Just so there’s no misunderstanding because of black/white on a computer screen without voice tone or facial expression, the preceding all comes with great sarcasm aimed at the world’s politically-dictated idiocy, not you.)
Oh – and never mind that there are separate Arab, Filipino, and Indian plates, or that the Eurasian (!) plate extends all the way from the Atlantic Ocean to the Australia, Filipino, and North American plates. Somebody clearly didn’t clue in God, who obviously broke up the plates the wrong way! So just bring on them Mongols! LOLAugust 1, 2017 at 10:17 am #52146
GS. I would have to wonder why Asians dont call eurozone the European subcontinent. And the english? Well aryans of course from india. Thus giving india a stronger claim on england than the eurozone. We may all be asians. I know i know flunking geohistory again. China will claim everywhere sooner or later.August 1, 2017 at 3:37 pm #52147August 2, 2017 at 8:07 pm #52156
Or do it the way the Romans did . They called almost anybody non Roman ….Barbarian . That term pretty much is appropriate . A little xenophobia is good for a culture sometimes . Japan has always been that way .August 5, 2017 at 4:31 am #52157
Getting back to Whirlibird’s original post, and in all seriousness, the following new essay (or interview, actually) really goes to the heart of what we read anymore about any “news.” As usual, totally disregard all the links and shaded boxes in this article – just read the article content itself. It’s brilliant. It goes to the heart of the process of actually controlling what “we” think (meaning society in general, around the world as well as here in the US). Here’s the intro:
[T]he AP puts out a stylebook every year that includes universal guidelines for stylistic matters like punctuation, capitalization, and even word choice.
In this year’s version, the AP encouraged writers to not use words such as “pro-life,” “migrant,” “refugee,” “Islamist,” and “terrorist.”
It’s completely ludicrous. Yet, sadly, it’s a sign of the times.
In the interview below, Doug Casey tears down the AP’s blacklist and discusses why this is happening…
Click the link at the end of that quote for the entire enlightening article. The insights are excellent. (And by the way – the big teaser for the special online training event next week actually does have a decent basis – subscribers already know what it is, and have been reading about it for a couple of months or so now. But save your money and don’t get on any more email lists by clicking the link and registering for the online event. It’ll just be another Porter Stansberry seemingly endless tease, followed by a sales pitch for one or more of the Casey Research (which Doug Casey no longer owns controlling interest of) publications. It’s fascinating, but unless you intend to subscribe to at least one of the expensive publications AND spend considerable time investing in what are sometimes penny stocks in mining and energy, you’ll waste your time, money, and end up with more junk mail.)
Meanwhile, you can contemplate for FREE, Doug Casey’s insights into our “news” media’s use of language, and how it slants society’s beliefs and false-understandings. Whether the Swiss chainsaw attack was “Islamist” or not, the point still remains that the “new” media are shaping our understanding of ALL news. This official Associated Press stylesheet update is (or should be) extremely troubling to most people, yet almost no one will even know about it, let alone understand the significance. And few people read Doug Casey interviews, or read from the pages of the SHTF Forum. Despite the lack of recent activity here, there are absolute gems sprinkled through the Forum’s pages, free for the taking (thank you Selco and Toby).
