“Our Job is Repression…the Police is a Paramilitary Organization”

March 18, 2009 by

15

«Comprenons-nous, nous ne sommes pas pour l’établissement d’un État policier, nous savons qu’il faut travailler avec la population et créer des liens. Mais il y a des groupes pour ça. Notre boulot, à la police, c’est la répression. Nous n’avons pas besoin d’un agent sociocommunautaire comme directeur, mais d’un général. Après tout, la police est […]

America’s New Counterinsurgency Doll: On Store Shelves this January 20

January 16, 2009 by

In a whirlwind of war, economic crisis, deepening pain that nurtures deepening suspicions and hatreds, some managers of crisis looked for a new means of pacification. George W. Bush was far too provocative (“Bring ‘em on!” — and on they came), too confrontational, too much like the stereotype of the cowboy, destined to be reviled […]

One More Scholar to Bash…on the Way to the Dustbin!

October 30, 2008 by

The good part about being publicly demonized by the likes of John McCain is that it reaffirms your value and relevance as a scholar. In other words, McCain makes you look good. No flattery is intended, he would have made you look good anyway, pretty well by virtue of the fact that he is John […]

In Support of Bill Ayers

October 27, 2008 by

It has been painful to sit through countless verbal lashings of Bill Ayers by the likes of Sarah Palin and John McCain, the tarring he gets with labels such as “domestic terrorist” and “washed up old terrorist” (a rich one, coming from the likes of McCain) to then find out that William Ayers is in […]

The Imperial Presidency & the National Security State on 1D4TW

October 11, 2008 by

Comments Off

It’s been a busy week on 1D4TW, with posts on AFRICOM, the invention of “the ugly AmeriKKKan,” cultural self-criticism, and the politics of race in the U.S. electoral campaign (Palin’s paean to the pale face, euphemizing whiteness and dehumanizing Obama). There will be more posts soon about AFRICOM (especially with a debate and struggle emerging […]

Cultural Self-Criticism: Escaping from Fear Fascism

October 10, 2008 by

Comments Off

I just finished writing in my previous post about distinguishing between Amerikkka and America, and about that American “underground” that is essentially a counterculture whose virtues include strong self-criticism, rehumanization of ways of perceiving Others, greater empowerment of disadvantaged communities, personal decolonization, to name only a few. Moments afterwards, I found the following comment posted […]

A Shift Toward the Center (of Fascism)

July 22, 2008 by

6

In “shifting to the center,” Barack Obama has now established himself as the other war candidate — pity those of us who maintained some glimmer of hope that this man’s touting of hope itself, and change, would have meant some conclusion to this latest round of imperial expansion. Pity those of us who thought that […]

“Me so horny, me love you long time”: The Phallo-Fascism of a Vainglorious Anthropologist in the Academilitary

[Note that within a week after this was posted, the blog in question was presumably deleted and remained so for quite some time until late in 2009 apparently. Concerning the initial act of hiding the blog, see this subsequent post.] Eros and thanatos, meeting, in such a loving, lustful embrace. This post will appear to […]
