American Handala

By mike flugennockTuesday - September 2nd, 2014Categories: Middle East, Obamarama, War on Terror, liberty

You’d have to be living in a cave to not see the clear parallels between the Israeli treatment of Palestinians — and Gazans in particular — and the police abuse and brutalization of poor black neighborhoods in the US. Poor black neighborhoods are occupied by militarized police who murder with impunity, collectively punish, threaten, harass and humiliate residents with tactics learned from the Israeli military. Tear gas, concussion grenades and other weapons used by police in towns like Ferguson, Missouri are manufactured by the same corporations which arm the Israeli military. It’s no surprise that during the Ferguson Rebellion, Palestinians in Gaza provided residents of Ferguson with tips on street fighting and proper techniques for the handling of tear-gas grenades.

This cartoon is in honor of dissident Palestinian cartoonist Naji al-Ali — who was assassinated in 1987 — and his iconic Handala character, and is a call for solidarity between victims of US police brutality and Palestinians enduring the same kind of oppression at the hands of Israel.

From Gaza to Missouri!

By mike flugennockTuesday - August 19th, 2014Categories: Obamarama, liberty, media

Nothing bugs me more these days than listening to posh-living white Liberals whining about the “rioting” in Ferguson, Missouri.

Affluent, NPR check-mailing White Liberal Americans have never had to deal with being denied economic opportunities, decent housing opportunities, or educational opportunities, nor have they had to endure the threat of brutality and murder at the hands of police every day of their lives.

So, just shut the hell up, white Liberal America. You can call it anything you want, but don’t call it “rioting”. I prefer to call it “uprising”, or perhaps “intifada”.

Toys In The Attic

Just in case you haven’t been following the bloody shitshow in Gaza, it isn’t just the Israeli state and military that’s batshit these days — it’s the whole damn’ nation of Israel that’s hopped aboard the crazy train.
