On October 3, 1992, singer Sinead O’Connor appeared on Saturday Night Live and performed an a cappella version of the Bob Marley song “War.” As she sang the final word in the song, “evil,” she held up a photograph of Pope John Paul II. Then she ripped it into several pieces and said, “Fight the […]
began to have religious visions that eventually prompted him to rebel against his enslavers and go on a killing spree of white people….
Listen up you brainless, slack-jawed, truck-nutted, racist, shake-and-bake-meth smoking, Confederate-flag waving motherfuckers. You. Fucking. Lost. Asses kicked. Game fucking over. Traitorous troops capitulated. The official flag of the Confederacy forever shall be the waving white flag of “Please stop killing us we give up.” Deal with it. Assholes.….
Witches have long been feared and hated in Christian circles. Even today, pagans and Wiccans remain a target of Christian persecution, especially in America. It seems that they long ago took on an identity which reached far beyond their own existence and became a symbol for Christians—but a symbol of what? Maybe an examination of the events will give us some clues…
Welcome to another euphemism-o-rama to describe white people being shitty. If some bleached bastard so much as imagined a Black man raped a low-melanin woman, his life would be at risk. And not just from lynching. In the not-too-old days, Black men could be sentenced to death by the state for sexually assaulting sunscreen slatherers. […]
8 women were convicted, executed and burned at the stake, sometime during the 1600’s. Sentenced not only to death but to exclusion from society, deprived of the blessing and denied a burial in consecrated ground. What was left after the fire did its thing was trampled into the bog and covered with stones so that they could not “walk again”.
On August 28, 1955, while visiting family in Money, Mississippi, 14-year-old Emmett Till, an African American from Chicago, is brutally murdered for allegedly flirting with a white woman four days earlier. His assailants—the white woman’s husband and her brother—made Emmett carry a 75-pound cotton-gin fan to the bank of the Tallahatchie River and ordered him to take off […]
One night in June 1914, a 49-year-old Swedish sailor who had recently arrived in New Orleans agonized feverishly in a steamy downtown boarding house. Rushed to Charity Hospital, he would soon die the loneliest of deaths — in an isolation ward, far from home, surrounded by solemn doctors consulting furtively. An autopsy confirmed their suspicions: […]
The Pentagon Papers, officially titled Report of the Office of the Secretary of Defense Vietnam Task Force, is a United States Department of Defense history of the United States’ political and military involvement in Vietnam from 1945 to 1967. The papers were released by Daniel Ellsberg, who had worked on the study; they were first brought to the attention of the […]
The phantom time hypothesis is a historical conspiracy theory asserted by Heribert Illig. First published in 1991, it hypothesizes a conspiracy by the Holy Roman Emperor Otto III, Pope Sylvester II, and possibly the Byzantine Emperor Constantine VII, to fabricate the Anno Domini dating system retrospectively, in order to place them at the special year of AD 1000, and to rewrite history. According to this scenario, the entire Carolingian period, including the figure of Charlemagne, is a fabrication, with a “phantom time” of 297 years (AD 614–911) added to the Early Middle Ages.
A lot of people have died because of the cocaine business. Coca-Cola used to have cocaine in it. And Coke (capital “C”) has killed a lot of people too, but not just from obesity. But because the company is an evil fucking empire. Allegedly…
8/10 … I really don’t know what to say about this that haven’t been said before. I love this movie, but then I’m a sucker for “bad” movies that wasn’t meant to be bad … or comedic. A movie where the director thought he made something great, but fails miserably.
So what’s not to like? Tombstones made out of cardboard, A Swedish wrestler who can’t act, Boom mikes showing, Toy UFO’s and much, much more goodies throghout the movie….
I’m a bad person, because the deaths of these five men strikes me as rather hilarious. It’s the epitome of “fuck around and find out.” What they found out was that a tribe living in isolation in the Ecuadoran rainforest had earned its reputation for violence, and they weren’t interested in converting to Christianity. Eat […]
In Sweden, the word for the pastry chocolate balls, have been called ”negroballs” (negerbollar) since the first half of 1900’s. The first paper trail of this is an add in a Swedish newspaper from 1918, and in the mid 1950’s it was represented in several cookbooks. Around the late 1990’s more and more voices where […]
One book at the National Library of Sweden stands out among the rest: the Codex Gigas. Bound in wood, consisting of 620 pages that are each nearly three feet long, and weighing in at 165 pounds, it is quite a hefty tome. But it’s not the size of the Codex Gigas that is its most intriguing feature. […]
