Will the war in this country never end?

Sad that the racism goes on and on ....

Certainly not while we have the Conservatives and Strahl in charge of the fisheries.

"Prime Minister Stephen Harper has stirred the waters among fishermen on the West Coast with a vow to end so-called race-based commercial fisheries in Canada."

And here is the lead asshole on the issue.

You can really see the difference in Vancouver , in the west side where the ultra rich elite have created a society of GREED and PERSONAL SELF INTEREST while so much poverty exist around the fringes, and believe me this rich filth laughs at the destitute and impoverished--- its their right to live this way. So much inequality in a city where the rich would have you believe otherwise.

personally I wish the rich luck because the shit has hit the fan. Bring their world down. www.metalblade.com/behemoth ov fire and the void. A message for modern world.

Re: the Behemoth video. What is this traditional misogynist crap doing here?

Yes I mentioned this in the salmon extinction thread several days back when it first happened.

So, I see  the attackers had strong foreign accents, then they are at best landed immigrants to Canada, who apparently believe they have a right to attack FN's fishers, who are catching food fish. Again...white male privilege knows no bounds.

How in the hell is Harper going to over throw a SCC decision, that FN's fishers provinding food fish for their communities have primary rights?

Your bigotry is showing.

How can we as a modern technological super wealthy country pretend that a substantial number of first nations peoples live in subhuman concentration camp conditions called reserves? It took canadian parliament 130 years to come to the conclusion that Metis are human beings, we are beyond social politics and into global corporate politics, there are no more societies. Politics is about the power elite controlling the masses with manufactured ideologies supported by the power elite, and dispensed to the industrial slave working class through mass media. We are taught to value nothing but wealth and material things, and are given blood sport turned into religions like Hockey. Times up--- Ov fire and the Void is the most powerful demythologizer I have ever seen, please don't limit this artistic statement to a modern world gone pathogenic with idiotic remarks trying to make this out to be sexist or something it isn't. It is much more powerful--- it deals with the soul--- something you don't believe in. I would suggest referring to Evangelion for further instructions. I didn't say it was not controversial or disturbing, something has to shake this gentrified mind set out of its bubble. Now its has.

My biogtry?

If that is what you call getting sick and fucking tired of white male supremacy and my expressing it against the 2 British Empire white males who have come to Canada and believe that they have a right to push First Nation peoples around when they are food fishing for their people's?

If so, you betcha!

Perhaps it is your bigotry, that you see nothing wrong with it?

Only a bigot would automatically assume that someone with a strong foreign accent is "at best" a landed immigrant - and then suggest that their supposed imigration status is in any way relevant to their bad behaviour.

My smaller point was  with immigrants at best is that they could just as easily be tourist sport fishers. And given their point of origan, either way, they  apparently have a good deal of colonia overlord mind set.

My real point is that it is typical white male supremacy,  perhaps fostered by colonial supremist beliefs. You apparently just believe they are nasty human beings and thus  you are refusing to view it from a classist and and racial implications framework. Or do you save that analysis for white people only discussions?

That's an ignorant lie and a smear designed to deflect my point.

Why don't you have the decency to admit you made an unacceptable remark, instead of trying to justify it or throw shit at other people when you're called on it?

remind remind's picture

Oh...more ignorant and smearing  than you calling me a bigot because I stated that white male privilege knows no bounds, even if they are immigrants to Canada.

Again with the lies. I've already explained why I called your remarks bigoted, but you just don't get it.

Lies?

More smears by you mspector, and apparently you just "don't get it", and IMV are giving a typical white male response, when challenged on your privilege.

 

M. Spector M. Spector's picture

IMV you are giving a typical "remind" response when challenged on anything.

Okay, you two, enough.

remind, M. Spector had a point regarding your original post, assuming that someone with a "foreign accent" is an immigrant. 

M. Spector, you could have expressed that without calling remind a bigot.

Both of your points have been made, so let's move on.  And it would also be great if we didn't have "third people" jumping into the fight after this post.  Thanks.

Any way you can see just how powerful this stuff is, it reaches us at a level so deep we are defenseless. We have no reference points to guide us any more. We need to change, not the technology. We need to be smart not cell phones. Some how we have all lost our collective self respect in our pursuit of uniqueness, as we all attempt to congregate at the top of the mountain. I believe we are spiritual beings having a human experience, not human beings having a spiritual experience. Don't forget the big picture.
