You've Got: Compulsory Diversity News!

It's been a busy day. Let's run down the stories...

Story 1: Sometime’s you feel like a nut … sometimes you don’t.
Confessed Rapist Castrated to Avoid Life Sentence

Well, castration is a good first step – and is much more justice than is meted out against most rapists – but the public will still have to pay to feed, clothe, and house this filth for the next twenty five years. Just kill him. Well, torture and then kill him. Wait, I’ll compromise – since he was willing to be castrated, let’s be lenient and just kill him now, without torturing him. See? I am capable of mercy.


Story 2: Though today’s headlines may read - MIT Student Lucky To Be Alive After Airport Bomb Hoax

More appropriate headlines would read something like -Butt-Ugly Weirdo Nearly Murdered by Airport Security for Taping a Nine Volt Battery to her Chest
This story says she went to the airport to meet her boyfriend. I’m guessing he’s blind, or named George Glass.


The Decider Decides Mandela is Dead, Who is Going to Break this to Still Living Mandela?
It has been making the rounds that Bush gave a speech in which he suggested Nelson Mandela was killed by Saddam Hussein. Of course, this is being used by some to support the accusation that Bush is mad, drunk, stoned, or a mix of all three. Though incapacitated in some fashion he may be, the truth behind Bush’s bizarre comment is very easy to explain, and is more meaningful in context than out of context.

Here is what Mr. Bush said yesterday:

I thought an interesting comment was made — somebody said to me, I heard somebody say, “Now, where’s Mandela?” Well, Mandela’s dead because Saddam Hussein killed all the Mandelas.
It may seem mysterious and bizarre, but it was just an inelegant rehashing of a talking point from weeks ago. At this link, we can watch FUX News repeat the talking point as it was meant to be parroted:

Then the president added that it has been hard to find a truly unifying Iraqi leader after decades of Saddam Hussein's brutal dictatorship. Quote, "There's a great line somebody said, 'Now where's Nelson Mandela when we need him?' The Nelson Mandelas of Iraq," he said, "are dead because Saddam Hussein made sure that if they didn't escape the country, they were dead."

Former President of SA, Noble Peace Prize Co-Winner, Nelson Mandela
The real story here is not the supposed Madness of King George, but the endless repetition of talking points to which the politicos and the press share access. We don’t have evidence of George’s altered mental state, we have evidence that news is tightly scripted, so that even if the politician fails to speak his message, the press knows what he meant to say and will make sure we still get the message that we were meant to be propagandized with.

To protect the illusion that we have an independent media in this country, the press tonight will have to acknowledge Bush’s slip of the tongue and let him off the hook by trying to explain what he meant, rather than let it get out that this has all been said before, thereby exposing the fact that the speeches, press conferences, and live news events they bring us are rehearsed, that the reporting they do is, for the most part, the reading of scripts prepared for them by the people they are supposed to be questioning. Just now I watched as MSNBC explained what the President meant by citing an administration mouthpiece on Capital Hill who had said something similiar. This of course forgives Bush's mistake, without exposing the fact that Bush himself has delivered the exact same message before, and that the media-abetted government is propagandizing the public 24-hours a day with scripted talking points.
Story 4: Delaware State Shooting = TNB
Mark my words, this story is a total non-starter. Delaware State is an historically Black college. 'Nuff said.
