Recently the Chicago Police Department released a video of a white Police officer shooting 17yr old Laquan McDonald 16 times.
An 18-month-old Palestinian boy, his mother and father were burned to death after settlers set fire to his family house in Duma village, south of Nablus city, in the occupied West Bank.
A white Minneapolis police officer fatally shot Jamar Clark, 24, an unarmed black man, on Nov. 15. A peaceful march in protest was disrupted when 5 protesters were shot. The police said that they had arrested a 23-year-old white man, and that two other white men, ages 21 and 26, turned themselves in on Tuesday afternoon.
The first to be arrested of course was a 32-year-old Hispanic but he was released when the police determined that he was not involved in the Monday night shooting.
Tariq Abu Khdeir, a 15 yr old PALESTINIAN-AMERICAN who is from Tampa, Fla., was seen on video being kicked and beaten while on the ground by an Israeli border guard in Jerusalem . Tariq was demonstrating against the death of his 16 yr old cousin who was kidnapped and burned to death by Illegal Jewish Settlers. The US State Dept. called for a quick and credible inquiry after footage of the beating spread worldwide. The guard was sentenced to 45 days community service. The State Dept. did not protest. Apparently there are US citizens and US-Palestinian citizens.
PALESTINE USA exists! You ask “where is this place”? In White American and Israeli minds. Could it be that this is what Netanyahu means my “Shared Values”?
I’ve had this BLOG “TPMR” (http://www. mrs-t.com) for a very long time, but for the first time today, I realized how “POLITICALLY CORRECT” I’ve been. I’ve heard so many people complain about this “politically correctness”. For me it has been a “trigger” word or code, for “I want to be able to call you whatever I want. It’s my right! I’ll take the First and Second Amendment and that’s all I need. I’ll say whatever I want and I have a gun to back it up.” But it’s not just that. It can also be silence!
Today, a Republican Donald Trump and a Democrat, Secretary Kerry spoke to me.
Donald Trump campaigns on NOT being politically correct and he leads the Republican primary. This means there are a lot of people who feel the same way. I was on the golf course and a member of my foursome expressed a similar feeling. “Whatever happened to free speech”? he asked. Since I didn’t know him, I didn’t want to spoil a day of golf. I decided to be “politically correct”, BY NOT ASKING, if that applied to Helen Thomas.
Pioneering journalist Helen Thomas was the first female member of the White House press corps and the United Press International’s first female White House bureau chief. She was often called “the First Lady of the Press. She exercised her free speech about ISRAEL and was promptly fired.
Today Secretary Kerry, with Netanyahu standing by his side nodding in agreement that the current wave of violence on the part of the Palestinians had to be called “terrorism”. I was “ASHAME”!
Since September 81 Palestinians and 19 Israelis have died.
For the sake of argument, let’s say 40 of the Palestinian deaths were attributed attacks on Israeli’s resulting in 19 Israeli deaths. What the hell happened to the other 41 Palestinian deaths?
Sec. Kerry’s comment was not only nonsense but offensive.
“I feared for my life”, “he reached for my gun”, “she attacked me with a knife”. If no weapon is found “they must have gotten rid of it after I shot them.” Or “I thought I saw a weapon. My bad! ”
The weapon of choice, by Ill-legal Israeli settlers. Appears to be, burning alive.
I’VE TRIED, BUT I CAN’T IMAGINE A WORSE DEATH THAN BEING BURNED ALIVE.
Isn’t that what ISIS did to the captured Jordanian Pilot?
What’s happening to Palestinians and Black Americans can’t be disconnected.
And It seems to be open season in PALESTINE-USA!
