Don’t need no stinkin’ facts: Co-founder of Pink Floyd and anti-Israel activist Roger Waters claims Israel’s military “invented” the chokehold used by a Minneapolis police officer that killed George Floyd. Israeli Defense Forces taught Americans the technique that cuts off “blood supply of the carotid artery to the brain.” “That is an Israeli technique, taught to the militarized police forces of the United States of America by Israeli experts, who the Americans have been flying over to the United States, to teach them how to murder the Blacks because they’ve seen how efficient the Israelis have been at murdering Palestinians in the occupied territories using those techniques,” Waters said. ” Roger, ol’ buddy, I hate to tell you, but that hold is from Jujitsu, was developed by the Japanese, and was used 3-4 hundred years before there was an Israel. But don’t let the truth get in your way.
Just trying to stay relevant: King of the “B” movies, Eric Roberts unleashed his fury by tweeting ”Ther weren’t enough empty-headed people 2 fill th empty seats.Some of those seats would hav been filled with people who died because believing u led them to disbelieve the devastation of this virus, about which you joke, mocking efforts to save lives”(sic) The Suits actor also lambasted the president for holding the rally in the first place. Roberts also ripped into Trump’s proposal to criminalize the burning of the American flag, hinting that those who mock people wearing masks as protection against the virus should be prosecuted instead. No word yet on how Eric feels about rioting, burning, looting or giant unmasked “protests.”
Just thinking: Does anybody realize the next 5 months spell JASON ? 2020 is not shaping up very well.
Alternate future: Many years ago I read R.A.H.’s “Farnham’s Freehold”. Anybody else? I don’t seem to remember any uproar over it, it predicts a “black” controlled world. Just waiting for them to demand R.A.H. be banned as a racist, or something.
The visual is the important thing: The headline says, “Florida woman claimed she was mistreated by Tampa police after an officer drew his weapon and had it trained on her for over four minutes before she was handcuffed — and eventually released without charges.” Okay, the vehicle she and a passenger were in had been reported stolen, the officer was in a solo patrol vehicle, he did not approach nor threaten. The officer made a “felony” stop, controlled the action until additional officers arrived, and she was released pending further investigation of the stolen vehicle. But what did you visualize reading the headline?
