Banning

Turkey is banning again. Still not a ban on the development of more shopping Mal's, build in areas were there is a lack of green and parking places, but again a ban on YouTube (one of the reasons that you don't find any clips of YouTube on this blog... all these naked pages all the time can insult someone, somehow, somewhat...
I don't know what the boy scouts in Ankara are doing but it looks like that they are either insulted or busy with insulting someone, in perpetual motion. Voila: the new YouTube ban, but we have word press back and the ban on the headscarf is still not unveiled: it's in some kind of grey zone.

But what I really don't understand is; all these Turkish politicians who are so busy with making life so difficult for one and each other, are suddenly the front soldiers to keep the dignity and spirit of Ataturk high. I miss here the logic.

Reverend Jeremiah Wright his speech

Below a part of Reverend J. Wright “Chickens are Coming Home to Roost” sermon, given just days after September 11th, Wright explained some of the atrocities of America’s “terrorist” past.
Jeremiah Wright does not hold back when it comes to blaming everybody except the African American community for many of his accusations and shortcomings. Its haunting Obama - who is (was) a member of his congregation - in his aspirations to become presidential nominee for the USA democrats 2008.

America’s chickens are coming home to roost! We took this country by terror away from the Sioux, the Apache, the Arawak, the Comanche, the Arapaho, the Navajo. Terrorism! We took Africans from their country to build our way of ease and kept them enslaved and living in fear. Terrorism! We bombed Grenada and killed innocent civilians, babies, non-military personnel. We bombed the black civilian community of Panama with stealth bombers and killed unarmed teenagers and toddlers, pregnant mothers and hard-working fathers. We bombed Gadafi’s home and killed his child. “Blessed are they who bash your children’s head against a rock!” We bombed Iraq. We killed unarmed civilians trying to make a living. We bombed a plant in Sudan to payback for the attack on our embassy. Killed hundreds of hard-working people; mothers and fathers who left home to go that day, not knowing that they would never get back home. We bombed Hiroshima! We bombed Nagasaki, and we nuked far more than the thousands in New York and the Pentagon, and we never batted an eye! Kids playing in the playground, mothers picking up children after school, civilians - not soldiers - people just trying to make it day by day. We have supported state terrorism against the Palestinians and Black South Africans, and now we are indignant? Because the stuff we have done overseas has now been brought back into our own front yards! America’s chickens are coming home to roost! Violence begets violence. Hatred begets hatred and terrorism begets terrorism.”


Jeremiah Wright brings up very important points and topics in his sermons, but they need not be taken at face value. He uses the topic at hand to run off the deep end with his political views and beliefs, and it only brings down the quality of thinking for the congregation, and for America. Now that he is a household name, he will surely try to capitalize on it.
