Goodbye Uganda And Kenya

The tragedy of Africa is,not only the colonial experience under European powers, but the aftermath of being colonized by its own leaders whose only concern is with retention of power for themselves and their associates. Thanks to the benefit of Western Christianity, a high percent of Africans are infused with hate toward those who fall into the category of being homosexuals. New laws in Uganda, Kenya and Nigeria make homosexuality a crime that is punishable not only with fines or prison, but even with death. President Obama, along with numerous European leaders, urged African heads of government to take a stand that protects the rights of gays and lesbians, Unfortunately, the words of Western Christian leaders is more attractive. They have educated people to hate homosexuals.

Sweden presently contributes over $40 million in economic aid to Uganda, but that money will no longer be delivered due to the new anti-homosexual laws. Along with Norway, Denmark and the Netherlands there is now a movement to halt any economic assistance to an African nation that has made homosexual love to be a crime. Unfortunately, the poor and women who need birth control assistance and children in school will be deprived of economic assistance in order to whip or beat or jail or kill those who are gay or lesbian. Such is the way of Christianity in Africa!!

Black On White In Sweden

The northern nation of Sweden is mainly populated by those who have white skins and fair complexions so it is rather unusual to encounter those with dark skins in one’s daily life. There are only about 180,000 people who fit the description of an Afro Swede. In America, when one refers to “African Americans” it refers to those whose ancestors lived in the North American continent hundreds of years ago, but an “Afro Swede” describes someone whose parentage is of more recent times. It is estimated that anti-African attacks and prejudice has increased by at least 24% over the past two years. It is rather ludicrous to worry about fewer than 200,000 people in a society of tens of millions, but many Swedes still regard one whose skin is not white as their own to be an individual who most probably is a criminal or one living off the largese of the Swedish government.

Times become economically on the down size readily leads to feelings of anger toward those who perform work that native born people-black or white skinned–do not wish to touch. People in economically advanced societies have incredible hatred toward those who perform the dirty jobs of society arguing they “take away jobs” from those who are native born. Hogwash, if you want to pick up garbage, there is a job for you. In reality, you are happy the black skinned person is doing it!

Who Can I Throw Out Of My Restaurant?

Mr. Kent Ekeroth is a member of the Swedish Democratic Party. Of course, when one refers to a “Democratic Party” in the country of Sweden the word has nothing to do with the word, ‘Democratic’ in the United States of America. Swedish “Democrats” originally were an organization of pro-Nazi thugs who enjoyed wandering around wearing Nazi armbands and pretending they were tough guys. They beat up “those people,” you know, those immigrants who were not of true Anglo-Saxon heritage and whose blood was not the same color as that of we white folk. Mr. Ekeroth went out to dine at a restaurant only to be informed by its owner that his presence was not welcomed in his establishment. It has now reached a point, says Mr. Ekeroth that “Swedish Democrats and friends of Swedish Democrats are no longer allowed to go out to a restaurant.”

I assume this raises questions about freedom:

1. Do I have the right to check your political views when you enter my restaurant?

2. Do I have the right to check your sexual views when you enter my restaurant?

3. Do I have the right to check your sport views when you enter my restaurant and gaze at sport events on my television set?

4. Do I have the right to eat with those of my own kind?

Times are getting difficult for Mr. Ekeroth with no Muslims to beat up this week!

With God On My Side

It was my assumption that if one had found the “true God,” than nothing in the world could prevent them from becoming a happy and joyous individual. After all, if one has God on my side, what can anything or anyone in the world do to prevent me from experiencing peace and contentment. A pastor in the Protestant Church of Sweden spent last summer in quiet reflection and concluded that he had been in contact with the wrong God and Church. He discovered that Catholicism was really the place for his heart. The pastor informed the Protestant faction of God that he really wanted to belong to the Catholic faction of God. However, there was one small problem, he had to eat. So he asked for six months salary from the Protestants so he could spend his time with the Catholics.

It turned out that he wound up with about $45,000 from Protestants so he could spend more time with Catholics. During his reflection, the pastor realized “my decision meant that I risked being penniless.” I thought God handled the eating part of being a minister.

Gang Rape OK In Sweden

Every so often one encounters a story which makes absolutely no sense other that bigotry and hatred are still alive against women on planet Earth. A fifteen year old girl in Sweden was assaulted and raped by five teens who were between the ages of 15 and 17 while at a party. Oh, another boy was on hand to ensure that each boy had a condom. At least the rapists believed in safe sex. The boys were initially convicted of rape but a higher court ruled the prosecutor’s claim the girl was in an “incapacitated state” was incorrect. This court argued the girl could have resisted the rape if only she fought back!!

Protestors from a feminist network, Femen, entered the Svea Court of Appeals, bared their chests and showed breasts to the judges who insist 15 year old girls can fight back against teen age boys if they do not want to be raped. The case will be appealed by prosecutors.

Question: What does it take to get a rape conviction in Sweden?? Death?

Another List

We inhabit a world in which at any moment some police organization at some place in the world is making a list.No,they are not making a list of what to ask Santa Claus.No,they are not making a shopping list as to what should be purchased at the supermarket.We need a list about some group of “terrorists.” After all,how can we be safe without a list? Police in Sweden decided to compile a list of Roma in their district. After all,one must have a list of the Roma children in their police district if they are to prevent stealing in the area. Roma list today. Muslim list tomorrow. Gay List in Russia. Palestinian terrorist list in Israel. Muslim Brotherhood list in Egypt.

Brother can you spare a list for someone down on his luck and who does not have a list? How can anyone make it through the day without getting on a list??

Forgotten European Youth

Among the tragedies of Europe’s dance with austerity has been a dramatic rise in unemployment throughout the region. An estimated 50% of young Spaniards lack jobs and similar figures are evident in Greece or Italy or even Sweden. Hundreds of Swedish young boys and girls went on a rampage through the streets of Stockholm showing their anger at being ignored and having their lives put on hold. They set fire to over 300 cars, burned down a restaurant and threw stones through store windows. There are even reports of a police station being burned to the ground. The initial outbreak most probably arose from police killing a 69 year -old man who was wielding a machete. Young people felt the police over-reacted.

It is time for Europe to abandon the austerity tactic and go back to some old fashioned John Keynes stimulus to the economy. Sweden might borrow the Depression CCC which placed one million young Americans to work on infrastructure tasks. FDR even pushed through bills that paid artists to paint or musicians to play music of people to put on plays. Provide meaningful work and riots will cease and desist.

Future For Youth?

Four years ago in most European nations young people were hopeful that with further education there would be ample opportunities to secure a good job.Today, the unemployment rate in Spain or Greece is over 50% for young people with scant prospect of changes during the coming decade of their life. Stylia Kampani, now works as an unpaid intern for an important Athens newspaper. What happens after the end of her internship is unknown. “None of my friends believes that we have a futureor will live a normal life. That wasn’t quite the case four years ago.” She is now part of a lost generation which is doomed to low wages, uncertan job security and loss of control over individual lives. European nations have not learned the lesson of America’s Depression when the federal government created jobs for youth like the CCC. It funded the theater, opera, symphony orchestras and provided many job opportunities in society.

Germany recruits some  skilled workers from Greece or Spain. In the UK anger is directed at immigrants because the government has done nothing to offer youth a chance for the future. Oh, it has tripled the cost of college. Youth needs to go beyond protest and organize political parties which pledge to create jobs, and, in so doing create hope. If governments refuse to act to create jobs, the end result will be emergence of neo-fascist political parties based on hate an violence.

Separate And Equal

A bus driver in Stockholm decided to strike a blow for equal treatment by separating white and  black skinned folk who ride buses. After all, it is simply not fair for those who possess a white skin to be forced into close proximity with those whose body smell of the black person. We offer some other ways to ensure that all  humans are treated in a separate and equal manner.

1. Definitely we need to separate men and women on buses. This ends my need to mentally undress attractive women whose gorgeous presence prevents me to concentrate on work.

2. We need to have baseball teams with either right or left handed batters and pitchers.

3. We need to separate singers in audiences between singers and listeners.

4. We need to separate slow walkers from fast walkers. How about a slow walker path in malls?

5. We need to separate slow and fast people who order food.

6. How about separate but equal voting booths? One for the intelligent voter and one for those seeking to vote for Republicans.

Speak English In Sweden -Or Else!

Gonzalo Munoz was born and raised in the country  of Sweden by parents who had migrated from Chile. Recently, he was waiting in a metro station in Stockholm to meet a friend when approached by a policeman. The cop, speaking in English, said to Mr. Munoz: “I’d like to see your passport because you are suspected of being in Sweden illegally.” Fortunately, Mr Munoz, in addition to his native Swedish also knows the English language. Fortunately, that day he also had his passport. Imagine if he did not speak English or did not possess his passport, a day in jail.

The purpose of  police in any nation in the world is to capture criminals. In New York City during the past year police stopped and frisked about 850,000 people. By some strange reason 75% of them were Hispanic or Black. I gather they did find fewer than 100 weapons. I am glad police waste their time halting honest New Yorkers. Oh, this does not mean there is evidence of racial profiling!
