Gates of Vienna News Feed 7/6/2010

Gates of Vienna News Feed 7/6/2010While President Obama was busy with a lawsuit against the state of Arizona for attempting to control the flow of illegal immigrants across the border, a leader of Hezbollah was arrested by Mexican police in his home just across the border from the USA.

In other news, former boxer Mike Tyson, a convert to Islam, has embarked on a pilgrimage to Mecca. There’s no word yet whether Mr. Tyson has the ear of King Abdullah.

Goodness knows that Iron Mike got into a world of trouble with the IRS when he tried to deduct Evander Holyfield's ear as a business lunch. [rimshot]

Good for Mikey that, like the overwhelming majority of black Americans converting to mahoundianism, he doesn't know any arabic except for the mahoundian version of Heil Hitler (allahuakbar.) I don't think he'd find it very flattering, on his little trip to the home of the giant black cube, to hear his fellow mahoundians of ayrab descent call him abd (slave in bedouin-savage gibberish), since that's the word in their language that they employ to refer to black people.

In Tyson's case, and in the case of all black calling themselves mahoundians, ignorance truly is bliss, isn't it?

@UK: How East German Communists Helped Fund 1984 Miners’ Strike

This headline is laughable. which one was the destroyer of Great Britain Thatcher or Scargill?

The old school socialists such as Scargill were politicaly easily containable while the neo-socialists of neoliberalism such as Thatcher could run amok behind the convoluted politics while masquerading as conservatives.

Let there be no doubt the modern political foundations of neoliberalism in the UK were set by Thatcher.

As history revealed Thatcher went on to destroy the UK not Scargill.
