Wal-Mart In East New York, Brooklyn

Yesterday WBAI radio news reported that Wal-Mart is trying to break into New York City by opening its first outlet in East New York, Brooklyn just as I predicted back in 1997 in "The Fall of New York":

"Just saw the most disturbing advert on television. It was a political ad by Guiliani. It had two Democrats endorsing the fascist. One was a Black City Councilwoman from East New York, the poorest district of the city. She’s endorsing Guiliani because he plans to develop her district. I can’t believe it! I wonder how much money she’s received?
Development? Sure, that means malls in the ghetto. The premise is that malls mean revenue and jobs. New housing developments which probably no one in East New York can afford. Middle class white yuppies will move into the area soon. Sounds like a nightmare. Upon closer examination reveals the following:
More consumerism for useless and unhealthy products. Minimum wage jobs for the few people in the area with good credit. The new workers will not earn enough to afford to live in the new middle class housing developments. Gentrification of the neighbourhood.
Negative integration: whites in, Blacks out. Where will Blacks go? If Guiliani and this Councilwoman have their way, it means upstate to prison."

BBC= British Bollocks Cocksuckers

I lost all respect for the BBC in 1999 during the illegal NATO bombing against Yugoslavia. It was clear back then that the BBC were propaganda shills. The BBC has gone downhill ever since. The BBC has been caught scores of times telling outright lies and fabrications.
However, this time the BBC has sunken lower than sewer pipes. During last week's student protests in London against the tripling of university tuition, the police went on a violent rampage against the demonstrators viciously beating children as young as 10 years old. That wasn't enough for the Metropolitan police. A gang of them attacked a paraplegic wheelchair bound man. It was caught on video. You can see the video here.

The BBC gave a nasty interview implying that the the disabled man had rolled his wheelchair towards the police which justified the violent police reaction. The BBC moderator asked that if he had been victimised, why hadn't he filed a complaint immediately. To which the man replied that he had decided to consult his lawyer as to the proper steps to take.
Think about it. If someone in a wheelchair was brutally assaulted by the police without provocation, would they be so quick to file a complaint? Of course, they would be afraid.
The BBC wouldn't have it. "Reporting" on the video the BBC writes:
"Video footage of a protester apparently being dragged from his wheelchair by police and pulled across a street has emerged amid claims the police used disproportionate force in dealing with student demonstrators last week." (Emphasis added)
Apparently? How about obviously! To add insult to injury (no pun intended) the BBC plays both the victim and the public for chumps and morons. The BBC implies that the victim had concocted up his story and that perhaps the video is fake! The BBC gives the following disclaimer:
"The BBC cannot verify they authenticity of this footage."
What other conclusion can one draw?

A Winter Morning

Jacques woke up in his bed. He turned his head and looked out the window from his second story apartment. He saw a cloudless crystal blue sky. “Tabernak!” He muttered.

Free Julian Assange! Defend Wikileaks!

It is with great reluctance (not mention a bit of shame)to write that the planet has reached a crucial crossroad. As pointed out in the previous entry, Democracy in the West has died. Western society has crossed the threshold and there is no turning back. Before our very eyes the brutal and vicious character of Western society has been exposed naked before our very eyes. The ruling elites of the Western countries are throwing away the pretences and formalities of Liberal Democracy as their agenda to turn more than 85% of the planet's population into serfs and slaves are the antithesis of democratic norms.
Since last Spring, Wikileaks have released explosive military and diplomatic files of the United States government. The video footage from an American Apache(sic) helicopter showing the indiscriminate killing of civilians (including two Reuters journalists) in Iraq exposed the brutality of the Iraq dirty colonial war to the world. The most recent release of diplomatic cables have shown just how venal and degraded American imperlialism has become.

Democracy RIP

There is nothing else that needs to be said. Anyone that believes that Democracy remains and that Western society is far from dictatorship is either delusional or in denial. The signs have been there over the past 15 years. Yet people continue to go about their lives as if nothing has happened. Even though events have presented themselves in broad daylight, people continue to live in delusion and denial. Let's look at the facts.
