Google, P.C. Cowards or Anti-Enviro Activists?

Jason A. Lefkowitz, 16.02.2004 16:31

You're not going to believe this.

Last week, we at Oceana decided to buy two of the small text ads you see on the right side of the page when you search the Web using Google. These are called "Google AdWords", and we thought they would be a good way to introduce new people to the ocean issues that Oceana -- and you -- care so passionately about.

Those ads started running on Friday, February 6. Two days later, Google shut them down, telling us our ads had been "disapproved". Why?

Because they contained "language that advocates against Royal Caribbean"!

Prophetic Bush Speech describes rise of the BEAST

Brent Herbert, 15.02.2004 16:19

Karl Rove must be hard at work crafting what is supposed to be the election year platform that will get Bush reelected in the fall (although with this Diebold voting machines leaving no paper trail, where there is a will there is a way...) This election year platform is riddled with hypocrisy, and could only sell to some in America, but nevertheless, I found it prophetic, in that it described the rise of the BEAST and an international police state...but then its the apocalypse, right, so I suppose you would expect to start seeing that sort of thing...

BRITAIN SPIED ON UN ALLIES to aid in legitimating the War


The Katherine Gun espionage case is showing just how far the US and Britain were prepared to go in their ultimately unsuccessful attempts to persuade the world of the case for UN support for war against Iraq.
Details are emerging in the relation to the Gun case about the US-UK operation to spy on diplomatic missions at the UN a year ago. The US-UK espionage occurred at a time when the US still hoped to get a second resolution from the Security Council legitimating the war on Iraq.


Maggie Thurs, 14.02.2004 18:40

Any surprise that the corporate media and their right-wing trailers have
turned the focus on the supposed "indecency" of Janet Jackson, a black
woman, "allowing" herself to become exposed on television, instead of
expressing indignation at the sexual and racial implications of having a
simulated sexual assault by a white man on a black woman disguised as
entertainment for the Super Bowl, the world's most watched television
program, on the day when the greatest number of sexual assaults against
women occur every year?

That is the real "indecency" that needs to be exposed.

Fallout from Breastgate: Sexual Assault as Entertainment
by Maggie Thurs

Super Bowl Sunday ended up a great day for fans of football, television
commercials, popular music, live entertainment and, as it turns out,
fourth-degree sexual assault. The stunt/accident/malfunction (or whatever
you choose to name it) forced on millions of unsuspecting viewers by
Justin Timberlake and Janet Jackson was a remarkably realistic
dramatization of sexual violence rivaled only by online pushers of rape on
the Internet.

Such online merchants may have to keep track of a new competitor: prime-
time network television. The drama played out during the Super Bowl's
halftime show is what most state's statutes would consider fourth-degree
sexual assault. Punishments vary from state to state, although a hefty
fine and prison sentence are not uncommon.

But as disturbing as the Super Bowl's halftime portrayal of sexual
violence was, it is more disturbing that public discourse has revealed a
complete apathy toward the violent content. Callers to nationwide radio
shows have expressed dismay over the appearance of a breast on prime-time
TV. Jackson has been accused of exposing herself, despite the fact that
she did not remove her clothing; Timberlake did. A nation, shocked into
frenzy by a breast, has accepted a woman having her clothes violently
ripped off as entertainment.

Where's the shock over a woman being assaulted by a man informing her,
without negotiation, that she will soon be naked -- dramatization or not?
Have we come to a time in America where sexual violence, particularly
against women, is so mainstream, so unimportant, so entertaining that
exposing a single breast is more shocking than assault? Has the
relationship between sex and violence, justified and promoted by so many
sexual predators, pedophiles and misogynists, become a normal part of our
national consciousness?

How frightening for the hundreds of thousands of us who, according to the
U.S. Department of Justice crime victimization survey, will be sexually
violated in the year to come. No wonder our sons will grow up thinking
that healthy sexuality is about violence and power. No wonder so many
victims live their lives without telling a soul. No wonder so many of our
daughters simply accept sexual violation as a part of growing up in
America. The journal Child Abuse and Neglect estimates that one 1 of every
4 girls in this country will be sexually violated before she turns 18.
Considering what happened during the Super Bowl, and how America reacted,
it's really not so shocking after all.

But there are things any individual can do to challenge the commingling of
sex and violence broadcast around us. Criticizing media is using, not
violating, First Amendment rights. When we comment to the media about the
images and messages that become part of our cultural scenery, we're
participating in our culture and our economy.

In particular, parents should talk about sexuality and sexual violence
with their children. One way or another, children will decide for
themselves what is healthy sexuality. Will they learn it from you or
Justin Timberlake?

Maggie Thurs is a public awareness coordinator for the Coalition Against
Sexual Assault in Madison, Wis.

Why Mel Owes One To The Jews

Rabbi Daniel Lapin, 14.02.2004 18:27

From audiences around America, I am encountering bitterness at Jewish organizations insisting that belief in the New Testament is de facto evidence of anti-Semitism. Christians heard Jewish leaders denouncing Gibson for making a movie that follows Gospel accounts of the Crucifixion long before any of them had even seen the movie. Furthermore, Christians are hurt that Jewish groups are presuming to teach them what Christian Scripture "really means." Listen to a rabbi whom I debated on the Fox television show hosted by Bill O'Reilly last September. This is what he said, "We have a responsibility as Jews, as thinking Jews, as people of theology, to respond to our Christian brothers and to engage them, be it Protestants, be it Catholics, and say, look, this is not your history, this is not your theology, this does not represent what you believe in."

&quot;Wir stellen uns quer - we will stand in the way&quot; Activists have formed a group in Dresden to resist transportation of nuclear waste caskets more than 600 kilometres across Germany to Ahaus near the Dutch border. About 20 people from various groups met on Friday 6 February to organise the resistance against transports, probably by road, expected to begin in March. They’ve given themselves the name “Aktionsbündnis Castor-Stop Dresden” (Dresden Castor Stop Action Alliance).
The highly active was is now in the grounds of the former research centre of Rossendorf, about 12 km from Dresden.
