This Embarrassment …

US Troll Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley praised Israel on Tuesday for showing restraint as Palestinian militant group Hamas “has been inciting violence for years, long before the United States decided to move our embassy” to Jerusalem.

Addressing a UN Security Council meeting on recent deadly violence in Gaza, Haley said: “No country in this chamber would act with more restraint than Israel has.”

Yeah… How dare the Palestinians be upset that they’re being starved, brutalised, murdered, kept prisoners behind walls & having their homeland stolen!

Gaza is a concentration camp, and what’s going on over there is pretty much a mass murder by Israel. Period. 

It’s interesting how you can quote the Bible and be a cold-blooded bitch at the same time…

That so-called human being, Nikki Haley, is nothing but an embarrassment to diplomacy and a symbol of disdain, corruption, denial, ignorance and cruelty.

Band of Frustrated celebrate Toronto van attack

Alek Minassian, the fucked up dude who killed 10 people with a rental van in Toronto on Monday, is being praised by misogynistic communities of the dark web…

Apparently the reason of the mass murder was the rejection he felt from women and his overall failure to attract the opposite sex.

Just before carrying out his rampage, he praised on his Facebook the “Incel Rebellion,” and California mass-killer Elliot Rodger (a 22 yo kid who did the same back in 2014).

Incels, or “involuntarily celibate” is a misogynist online culture of men who don’t have access to sex and believe it’s a basic human right. Following Monday’s carnage, members of the incel community praised the Toronto truck attack, calling for similar action, saying “it’s now or never.”

According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, an organization that monitors hate groups and extremists, incels stem from the pickup artist movement, a culture that offers men tips to persuade women to sleep with them. When theses pickup tips fail them, the men become bitter.

Let’s think for a moment… WTF!!!

We all have probably felt rejected once, or twice but that’s life. 

Also, it’s not all about looks, but about personality. 

More than any negative feeling I feel sincerely sad for that band of frustrated. It’s obvious they need physiological help, yet is scary how many angry men, about not getting laid, are out there. To say all of them need some sex in their life to chill the fuck down, it’s not a frivolous remark. But the truth!

The Cop who didn’t shoot

There have been a lot of these… London. Munster. Berlin. Barcelona. Paris. Nice. Stockholm.

It’s hard to recall the details of any one specifically or to tell them apart. There’s a van or a car. Often it is rented. The driver steers it into a crowd, killing as many pedestrians as he can. Most end when whoever is behind the wheel is shot, or shoots himself.

Today it was Toronto, 10 pedestrians dead, 15 injured…  A horror. A tragedy.

But this one may stand out in our memory for more than the fact that it happened here, in Canada. It will also be remembered as “The one with the cop… the cop who didn’t shoot.”

No motive is currently known, all we know is that the criminal is a 25-year-old fucked up!

At any point if the cop had fired and killed the suspect, the public, his peers, the press, even the driver himself, everyone would have understood. In fact, we likely would have called him a hero.

What held his finger? Bravery? Training? Compassion? Perhaps we will find out in the days ahead. But whatever it is, it deserves attention.

It is easy to take a life. A quick turn of the steering wheel and 10 people are gone. A small amount of pressure on the trigger, and the suspect is dead.

We kill each other out of hate, or fear, or ignorance, or duty. Sadly, we understand this instinct well. This is the dark side of humanity. And rightly, we are mesmerised by the horror of it.

But we also possess the instinct to keep each other alive.

This part of us can be more difficult to understand. But it deserves our devotion much more than the act of killing does.

These moments of humanity are not uncommon, but they are precious. It would be good if we could remember that about Toronto, remember the cop who didn’t shoot the bastard.

My thoughts go out to the victims of this senseless act of violence.

La petite fille à la Kalachnikov: Ma vie d’enfant soldat

Done! I finished this book on Monday, and I started a new one that I’m about to finish too.

Child Soldier is an account of China Keitetsi’s life in Uganda. She portrays a difficult upbringing and a dysfunctional/abusive family structure.

Her tense relationships with her father, grandmother and stepmother make up more than half of the book and she tells this story from her perspective as an abused child.

Tired of the violence at home, she eventually runaway in search of her biological mother.

She finds her but then leaves almost immediately as she had learnt not to trust anyone. It is then that her life as a child soldier begins.

She describes her life from when she joins the NRA at 8 or 9 years of age, through her training and then the bloodshed, abuse and violence, until later when she’s already an adult soldier and decided to leave the country.

Although one can’t help but sympathise with the child’s struggle, this book was badly put together. Nonetheless, it provides a bit of insight into the realities faced by child soldiers, harsh and difficult. 

Not the best book on the subject, but okay.

DISASTROUS

It was all supposed to be so simple… Go to India, show off our Indo-Canadian cabinet ministers, sign a trade agreement or two and cap it all off by gladhanding with everyone’s favourite world leader, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Instead, trying-hard Canadian Prime Minister turned into a Bollywood parade of foreign gaffes.

The first days politicians refused to meet him (due to Trudeau’s support of Sikh separatist groups,) Trudeau was in India for several days without seeing the country’s Prime Minister… But this isn’t all that unusual.

India is a populous, emerging economy that generally has better things to do than hang around with the now  attention-whore America Junior.

Still, after numerous hug-saturated foreign trips, it’s a little discordant that Trudeau was brushed off by the huggiest leader in Indian history.

Seriously, dude hugs whatever moves…

Anyhow, the fact is Trudeau was acting like a clown ruining the honourable image of Canada with his tackiness.

But the gaffe-prone visit morphed into a full-blown foreign policy disaster when Surrey, B.C., businessman Jaspal Atwal was invited to a Canadian diplomatic event Tuesday where he was photographed next to both Sophie Gregoire Trudeau…

Atwal is also a convicted terrorist, having attempted to assassinate a Punjabi cabinet minister in 1986 while the latter was visiting B.C. Atwal was also charged, but not convicted, in the vicious 1985 beating of Ujjal Dosanjh, a vocal anti-extremist and later Liberal cabinet minister.

Keep in mind that this visit is happening amid widespread Indian accusations that Canada is nurturing a resurgence of extremist Sikh terrorism… And that the government is too incompetent to notice.

This was nothing more than a family vacation at our expense with a heavy dose of indecorum.

I guess, we can finally all agree that when it comes to World Leaders Justin Trudeau is without a doubt proven himself over and over again that he is NO LEADER whatsoever. 

The good news is, we can dump him the next election!

On behalf of my fellow Canadians, I apologise for all the embarrassment.

Pablo Escobar: My Father

Done! I finished this book yesterday.

Although I found the first half interesting (and debatable,) I got bored of Juan Pablo’s narrative.

Written by the son of Pablo Escobar (the most powerful drug lord and narcoterrorist that ever existed,) he clearly outlines the price the family had to pay for a life they did not choose.

At first, it was difficult to understand why his father was such a wanted man, then as he grew, Juan Pablo Escobar became very aware of his father’s criminal history of violence.

Overall this is a good book, however, I’m not sure how credible some of Juan Pablo’s recollections are, considering that he was only 16 when his father was killed… How much a teenager can understand of an international criminal enterprise?

From times the author tries to look badass, but most of the time he is apologetic… And I may sound like a jerk but I found him ANNOYING!

I have no doubts Juan Pablo is a decent man, he is also a victim… And all the shit he went through in exile in Argentina (with all the names he mentions that I’m familiar with) was malicious as hell.

Yet, I don’t buy his humble character. I don’t feel it (at least not in this book).

I feel more like he’s seeking empathy, and perhaps also trying to humanise a bit his dad’s image. I don’t condemn him and I don’t admire him.

What Juan Pablo makes me feel is complete indifference.

I believe we all transit our issues the best we can, and this was his way.

Another Shooting In America…

Here we go again….

Just 7 weeks into 2018 and there has been another school shooting in America, making it 18th since the start of the year.

Nikolas Cruz is the latest sick bastard on the list of fuck ups.

The kid is a member of a White Supremacist militia.

Described as a loner by a former classmate, the 19-year-old returned to Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School with an AR15 rifle and gunned down at least 17 people in a massacre that ranks as one of the deadliest mass shooting.

I don’t really know what to say anymore…

It’s sad and terrifying how our neighbour country can be so violent, but even more sad and terrifying the fact civilians can still so easily purchase a machine gun. It’s been ages now that the United States stopped being a land of hope to become a land of fear.

Meanwhile, the orange creature issued some statements on Twitter, labelling noting there were many signs that Cruz was mentally disturbed… genius! Also, he posted this:

And got few replies, one of them was this 16 year-old student…

At this point, as a nation, America has told the world the safety of their children is less important than the rights of gun owners.
