‘Give me some water you fucking chink’


richie-incognito-2Would that kind of language uttered in any board room or office be acceptable in any company?  Evidently it’s perfectly acceptable in the locker room of the Miami Dolphins. 

Incognito, Jerry and Pouncey admitted that they directed racially derogatory words toward him, including “Jap” and “Chinaman.” At times, according to Martin, they referred to the Assistant Trainer as a “dirty communist” or a “North Korean,” made demands such as “give me some water you fucking chink,” spoke to him in a phony, mocking Asian accent, including asking for “rubby rubby sucky sucky,” and called his mother a “rub and tug masseuse.” Martin and others informed us that Incognito and Jerry taunted the Assistant Trainer with jokes about having sex with his girlfriend. Incognito admitted that these types of comments were made to the Assistant Trainer.

On December 7, 2012 (the anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor), Incognito, Jerry and Pouncey donned traditional Japanese headbands that featured a rising sun emblem and jokingly threatened to harm the Assistant Trainer physically in retaliation for the Pearl Harbor attack. Martin reported that the Assistant Trainer confided to him that he was upset about the Pearl Harbor prank, finding it derogatory and demeaning.

The NFL commissioned a report about the problems players were having with Miami Dolphin staff and in particular Richie Incognito, entitled Report To The National Football League Concern ing Issues of Workplace Conduct At The Miami Dolphins.  Can you read the whole thing here.  It’s pretty sensational and probably a lot more common in the work environment than we as a society care to admit.  Hopefully this will get the ball rolling on ridding the work place from this vulgarity.

GREAT STUFF


Below are two of my favorite signs from this past weekend’s event in Washington, DC.  the rally for fear or something like that.  The meaning of the rally’s name escapes me right now; I think it was in reaction to Beck’s rally earlier of tea party supporters, and no, I’m not gonna’ get into the numbers game either.  Of the two rallies, I would hang out with the people at this latest one and the signs below point out why.  For a full look at all the signs head over to HuffPost.

 

The Xenophobia of the Israeli Press


Amazing!  Simple amazing what one can find on the printed pages of the Israeli press!! It espouses a racist agenda in something as far reaching and cross cultural as sports competitions, i.e. the World Cup play and who to cheer for, while still managing to maintain its victimology status, and yes it probably is satire, much like the “joke”, ‘We Con the World‘ was shameless satire

The Turks, whose Islamic fundamentalist wannabe martyrs tried to kill Israeli soldiers aboard the Mavi Marmara last Monday, did not make the tournament. The sanctimonious Swedes and Norwegians thankfully won’t be there, either.

Brazil, in cooperation with the Turks, initiated a proposal that could have facilitated the nuclearization of Iran, voted with the Turks against Wednesday’s UN sanctions, and recently treated visiting Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad like a king.

Israelis won’t be cheering for North Korea, which built a Syrian nuclear facility, or Algeria, for obvious reasons. Germany remains Iran’s largest-trading partner, and a massive 20-billion-euro Swiss gas deal with Iran should prevent Israelis from backing Switzerland, which hosts the notoriously anti-Israel UN Human Rights Council.

There are many reasons not to root for England; from its attempt to prosecute opposition leader Tzipi Livni, its deputy prime minister’s support for banning weapons sales to Israel, it being the home of Israel boycotter Elvis Costello, and its recent expulsion of a Mossad official due to his alleged role in facilitating the use of British passports to kill a mega-terrorist.

Honduras has a large Palestinian population. Paraguay sheltered many Nazis, including Joseph Mengele, after the Holocaust. The Ivory Coast is 60% Muslim.

There’s more but I think you get the point; Israeli media has a bone to pick with most of the world and it’s all because the world has made Israel a victim, and the Muslims are to blame for it.
