D., who was released from prison this week, was incarcerated in one cell with six other girls; now she’s dreaming about the boy she met for a moment in the prisoners van.19:00 29.04.16 | 2 comments
The so-called Nobel Peace Prize committee has a long history of awarding the prize to white racists, colonizers, and genociders, along with those who truely believe in and work for peace. Given that long twisted history of hypocrisy, President Obama's receiving and accepting the prize, and his speech in which he misrepresented and trivialized the usefulness and effectiveness of the beliefs and works of people such as Gandhi and Marthur Luther King was not really a new low. He just didn't raise the bar any. The West lost any credibility it had in the field of neuclear non-proliferation when it looked the other way while Israel and other so-called Western democracies worked hand in hand with the thoroughly repugnant Apartheid regime in South Africa to create a nuclear armed anti-black state in Africa. After lying for years about the existence of the weapons, these heroes removed them when it became clear that the weapons would no longer be in safe white racist hands.
