    The Lie of the Apartheid buses returns

    in Politics

     Remember a few years ago when the Israelis set up another bus company in Judea and Samaria [the "west Bank"] that would make life easier for Arab workers in the West Bank who work for Israel. Those buses would not stop at any Israeli settlement and did not charge a high price like the "pirate" buses. The world called those buses "Palestinian-only" buses. Arabs were allowed in the other buses; but the so-called "Palestinian-only" buses wer emore conveniant for them. The anti-Semitic world said that Israel operated "segregated" and "Apartheid" buses. Now the smear returns when Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon announced that Arab workers would have to return from the Eyal checkpoint, the same checkpoint where they entered Israel to work. Now the world is again  alsely accusing Israel of having "segregated and "Apartheid buses, as well as falsely claim that Arabs won't be able to ride Israeli buses. Tune in, as I discuss this repeat of the false charge against Israel coming from the left and the anti-Semitic liberal media and international community.

    Resurrecting Apartheid: War On Black America

    in Motivation

    It seems like no exaggeration to suggest that at this moment, a half-century after the greatest victories of the civil rights movement, America is drifting backwards towards apartheid. It’s not a word I use lightly, nor one we are accustomed to using when describing our current condition. Indeed, its not even a word that most are willing to utter when referencing our past. It’s a word we like to reserve for others, for the formerly white-dominated South Africa, but not for ourselves, and certainly not now, what with a black president and all.
    But beyond the presence of brown faces in high places, can anyone really claim without gagging on the sheer dimensions of the lie, that we are even within intercontinental-ballistic-missile-striking-distance of that state of post-raciality so many naive white folks assured us had arrived upon the election of Barack Obama? People like Rudy Giuliani and William Bennett and John Bolton and Ann Coulter, all of whom proclaimed racism essentially over as soon as the election had been called?
    Is it really a stretch to call it apartheid, even as one after another after another after another black male (roughly one every 28 hours) — and more than a few black women and girls — are gunned down by police or vigilantes in city after city and town after town, unarmed, or armed only with an air rifle in a Wal-Mart? And this, even as white men can point their guns at federal officials or parade around the streets, or in Target or churches or Chipotle, or bars (because guns around booze is always a great idea) or anywhere they damned well please with weapons — real ones, with bullets — and be left to see another day? Or in some cases even lauded as heroes and the new “freedom riders,” standing up for their constitutional rights?

    Cuban Americans remember the tradition of "Los Reyes Magos"

    in Christianity

    Guest:  We remember "Los Reyes Magos" and growing up Cuban with Tersi Bendiburg (storyteller) and Amarilys Rassler (author).    As kids in Cuba, and the US, we used to get our toys on January 6th, or "El dia de los Reyes Magos".    It was a wonderful tradition and we all have memories of it.

    Hard Starboard Radio: Environmentalist Civil War?

    in Politics Conservative

    The criminal negligence of Barack Obama's pro-terror policies; No, barry, the Cuban people are suffering because of their repressive communist government you love so much, not the U.S. embargo; Is there really a growing schism within American environmentalism?; "Reforiconservatism" has a strong "abandoning free market principles to save the free market system" vibe to it; and, if we must, as little Hillary Clinton crap as possible.
