Anti-Fascist Resistance and the Struggle to Defend Human Rights in #Charlottesville and #OccupiedPalestine // @TheAngryindian Speaks with US Attorney Stanley Cohen

Summary: The United States is facing a serious, sociopolitical crisis of national identity following the right-wing terrorist killing of anti-fascist/anti-racism activist Ms. Heather Heyer during a neo-Nazi #UniteTheRight event held in Charlottesville, Virginia USA. And the tacit support such organisations are receiving from the Trump administration; the US Justice Department; the Republican Party; police officials and their supporters is sending a message of hate and division across the nation and across the world. Even the creator of ‘Argumentum ad Nazium, reductio ad Hitlerum’, or, ‘Godwin’s Law’, writer Mike Godwin, says: ‘It’s OK to call Charlottesville white supremacists Nazis‘ while the US president argues that there are ‘Good People’ amongst the far-right, neo-Nazi and Ku Klux Klan members that heavily populate his narrow-minded support base and those who wilfully participated in the pro-fascist, domestic terrorist activities that occurred in Charlottesville.

To help dissect this exceedingly complex subject, FWR host @TheAngryindian speaks with North American attorney-at-law Stanley Cohen, a well-known – if not infamous – political figure recognised for his legal work defending many US progressive movements; social justice activists and human rights/anti-colonial causes occurring in North America and Occupied Palestine. Raised in an orthodox Jewish family and shaped by a formal Hebrew education, Mr. Cohen has legally represented members of the Hamas (Gaza Strip); Hezbollah (Lebanon) and Assad (Syria) governments; provided consul to relatives of Osama Bin Laden (Saudi Arabia) and to the American-born sheikh, Abdul Rahman Yasin, said to have engineered the World Trade Center attack of 1993. Aside from defending notorious world actors, a number of other, lesser-recognised clients closer to home have also used his services, such as the Legal Aid Society; VISTA (volunteer services); the Winnebago, Omaha and Santee Sioux Nations and he has worked alongside prominent, pro-People attorneys such as the (late) William Kunstler and has legally defended a member of the Weather Underground with the (late) Lynne Stewart. As quoted in an article by Jessica Schulberg for the newrepublic, Mr. Cohen calls it an honour to be voted the “world’s number one self-hating Jew”, and on FWR he discusses unpopular subjects such as: the rise of fascism in the United States under the Trump administration; the silence of the Zionist movement regarding racialism and Judeophobia within the Trump White House; Rojava and the question of Kurdish independence and western apathy; American Exceptionalism; Homophobia, Sexism and Feminism within the Arab and Muslim Worlds and how this paradox relates to the US taxpayer-funded state of de facto Apartheid within Israel/Occupied Palestine and the questionable, undue pressure human rights activists in the US and Canada face when addressing Indigenous/First Nations; Afro-American and Native Palestinian issues. This discussion is exceptional for Mr. Cohen’s debunking of false (and racist) allegations suggesting that the US ‘created’ Islamic extremist groups in Western Asia and explains why the American left-wing needs to get its act together.

All this and much more on, 4WR.

4th World Radyo // The Rise of the #NeutralNegro: Self-Hating Afro-Americans and the Lyrical Lynching of Black America

Black_alt_reich-10-58-24.png

Summary:The #NeutralNegro in North America is the focus of this Indigenist, spoken-word political analysis by @TheAngryindian (primarily) in response to a Twitter post by a Black American conservative arguing in a reply to @MarcACaputo after the neo-Nazi terrorist attack in #Charlottesville, Virginia USA that:

Democrat policies since 60’s have greatly suppressed Black progress. I welcome a Nazi govt, if ALL Americans treated EQUAL under the LAW.

Courtney West, (@girlfeliz1)

Black conservatism in the United States under the jaundiced oculus of German/Scottish-American Eurosettler Donald J. Trump is one thing, actively supporting and promoting German Nazism – a political philosophy that officially defines all African Peoples as unnecessary, ‘sub-human’ entities – is quite another. Whether one is of Indigenous; Jewish; of African descent or not, Nazi philosophy – social/political/economic – is anti-human at its base. It is a negative, anti-social system of marginalisation; social implosion and eventually, the genocide of the ‘unwanted’.

Despite this, some Black Americans, American Indians and Spanish-speaking Native Peoples from Latin América agree with ‘giving Hitler a chance’ and proudly lend their moral support to the White Supremacists of the ‘alt-Right’. They make a point of condemning anti-fascist and anti-racist protesters as ‘dangerous’, anti-White radicals seeking to ‘destroy Israel’ with secret funding from George Soros. In essence, these are Black Folks (House Negroes) regurgitating far-right talking-points explicitly designed to confuse the general public into a state of hyperdiffusionism through a process identified as: ‘non-linear warfare’. In other words, it is no surprise that Black American conservatives are performing their historical role as apologisers and moral attendants to Eurosettler power and class-constraints. What is new is the shift towards an American African, neoconservative penchant for actively endorsing racialist political ideologies, such as an Americanised version of German Nazism, and worse, their passionate defence of far-right rhetoric; terrorism and the civil and political rights of anti-African, Nativist Eurosettler movements.

4th World Radyo : Justifying Homophobic Murder(s): Examining the False Utilisation of Feigned Ignorance as a Means of Defending Prejudice

two-spirit_people_at_DuckDuckG2017-08-11_15-14-51.png
Summary: In another spoken-word sociopolitical rebuttal against foolish social biases; unwarranted ignorance and scary Far-Right normalisations for homophobic violence, @TheAngryindian discusses the increasingly apathetic focus on the basic #HumanRights of our #Trans/#TwoSpirit Brothers and Sisters (and everything in-between) with regards to anti-Transgender discrimination; physical assault and extreme prejudice and/or (premeditated) murder of people simply because they are different; vulnerable and un-protected by the legal/justice system. It is important to understand that this critique is centred on one particular source of independent Afro-American news media, not the broader effort undertaken by Black broadcasters in North and South America to address and eliminate prejudice(s) and the rush to belligerence in an supposedly (progressive) humane society.

EXTRAS: Listeners should anticipate the usual political satire clips – this time from ‘Secular Talk’ and political entertainment in the form of ‘Revolution #2’ by The What – and – ‘Straight White Middle Class Male’ by veteran troubadour Dave Lippmann. There is also archived audio from a televised interview with a Two-Spirited Dine’ (Navajo) person who sat as a guest on the (usually ‘Liberal’) Phil Donahue Show (circa: 1991) following the Danny Bonaduce prostitution scandal; and internet media from Africa discussing the struggles of Transgendered People on the African continent.

Two-Spirit – Wikipedia – Two Spirit (also two-spirit or twospirit) is a modern umbrella term used by some indigenous North Americans to describe certain spiritual people[1][2] – gay, lesbian, bisexual and gender-variant individuals – in their communities.[3][4] The term was adopted by consensus in 1990 at an Indigenous lesbian and gay international gathering to encourage the replacement of the outdated, and now seen as inappropriate, anthropological term berdache.[4][5][6]

“Two Spirit” is not interchangeable with “LGBT Native American” or “Gay Indian”;[2] this title differs from most western, mainstream definitions of sexuality and gender identity in that it is not so much about whom one is sexually interested in, or how one personally identifies; rather, it is a sacred, spiritual and ceremonial role that is recognized and confirmed by the Elders of the Two Spirit’s ceremonial community.[1][2] While some have found the term a useful tool for intertribal organizing, not all Native cultures conceptualize gender or sexuality this way, and most tribes use names in their own languages.[5][7] While pan-Indian terms are not always appropriate or welcome, the term has generally received more acceptance and use than the term it replaced.[5]

Third and fourth gender roles traditionally embodied by two-spirit people include performing work and wearing clothing associated with both men and women. Not all tribes/nations have rigid gender roles, but, among those that do, the most usual spectrum that has been documented is that of four genders: feminine woman, masculine woman, feminine man, masculine man.[1]
