“Your husband put us in a bind.”
…by assuming he had rights…
Is Google now an arm of the U.S. State Department?
On 3/18/15 we received a note from Google Adsense informing us that all ads for our site had been disabled. Why? Because of this page showing the horrific abusescommitted by U.S. troops in Iraq at Abu Ghraib.
This page has been up for 11 years. During all that time Google Adsense has been running ads on our site – but as Washington gets ready to re-invade Iraq, and in bombing, killing, and abusing more civilians, they suddenly decide that their “anti-violence” policy, which prohibits “disturbing material,” prohibits any depiction of violence committed by the U.S. government and paid for with your tax dollars. This page is the third-most-visited page in our history, getting over 2 million page views since it was posted.
Of course the intent is to spin it away as an alleged small number…
Let’s remember what isn’t being reported at corporate media:
The new deputy prime minister, Oleksandr Sych, is from Svoboda; National Security Secretary Andriy Parubiy is a co-founder of the neo-Nazi Social-National Party, Svoboda’s earlier incarnation; the deputy secretary for National Security is Dmytro Yarosh, the head of Right Sector. Chief prosecutor Oleh Makhnitsky is another Svoboda member, as are the ministers for Agriculture and Ecology (Channel 4, 3/5/14). In short, if the prospect of fascists taking power again in Europe worries you, you should be very worried about Ukraine.
The named mass-murdering Nazi war criminals have killed at least 6000 of their countrymen, with the full support of the US and its partners.
This is what modern fascism looks like:
The corporations poisoning and contaminating drinking water are suing their victims for talking about it. They should be in prison cells. This is the corporate-state power Mussolini championed.
Surprise! Americans don’t like Gestapo free-for-alls in their hometowns.
Some of us have been warning about this glaringly fascist shit since the 80s and before. Anyone remember COINTELPRO?
Six people and multiple Chicago attorneys came forward to the Guardian this week with detailed accounts of police holding suspects and witnesses for sustained periods of detention inside Homan Square, without public records, access to attorneys or being read their most basic rights – involving what they said included shackling, physical abuse and being “disappeared” from legal counsel and family. The Guardian’s recent investigation into Chicago police brutality began the week before, with a two-part account of the tactics of Detective Richard Zuley, who went fromChicago homicide investigatorto Guantánamo Bay torturer.
“It [France] was a country that embraced everyone and encouraged freedom in every way, shape or form – artistic expression of freedom… Now that’s completely gone.”
