OBL, Whitney, and the rise of American Theocracy.

Oh my! It seems my girl Whitney had quite a few admirers all over the world.

"Terror mastermind Osama bin Laden is so obsessed with singer Whitney Houston he thought about killing her husband, Bobby Brown, it was claimed last night.

"The suggestion is made by Sudanese poet and novelist Kola Boof, who claims she was bin Laden's sex slave for four months 10 years ago.

In her autobiography, Diary of a Lost Girl, she writes: "He told me Whitney Houston was the most beautiful woman he'd ever seen."

Boof, 37, who claims bin Laden raped her and held her prisoner in a Moroccan hotel, says he could not stop talking about the songbird, even though he disapproved of music.

"Osama kept coming back to Whitney Houston," she says in the book, excerpted in the magazine Harpers' Bazaar. "He asked if I knew her personally when I lived in America. I told him I didn't.

"He said that he had a paramount desire for Whitney Houston, and although he claimed music was evil he spoke of someday spending vast amounts of money to go to America and try to arrange a meeting with the superstar.

"It didn't seem impossible to me. He said he wanted to give Whitney Houston a mansion that he owned in a suburb of Khartoum.

"He explained to me that to possess Whitney he would be willing to break his colour rule and make her one of his wives.

"Whitney Houston's name was the one that would be mention constantly.

"How beautiful she was, what a nice smile she has, how truly Islamic she is but is just brainwashed by American culture and by her husband Bobby Brown, whom Osama talked about having killed, as if it were normal to have women's husbands killed." [Source] (h/t to Susan)

Damn, OBL had more love for Whitney that some of the racist mofos in this country. (And people wonder why I despise FOX and everything they represent so much.)

Anyway, tonight I want to blog about the "occupy woman's vagina" folks who have hijacked this contraception debate. Because we all know that blocking a woman's right to reproductive services is the republican thing to do.

President Obama, much to my displeasure, compromised with the Catholic Church in this debate. I hate to break it to him, but if he thought that the folks who are trying to score cheap political brownie points from this would back off, he would be wrong.  And the Catholic Church certainly isn't giving any ground. (Why should they? It's not like we are talking about pedophile priests or anything.)

"It's still clear that President Obama does not understand this isn't about cost--it's about who controls the religious views of faith-based institutions," Blunt said in a released statement. "President Obama believes that he should have that control. Our constitution states otherwise."

And who should have the control over a woman's body? If a------ fill in your religion other than Catholic--- woman chooses to work for a Catholic hospital or university and wants to buy birth control pills for whatever, are you telling me that she shouldn't be allowed because she works for a Catholic institution? (One that most likely gets some kind of public funding.) What about individual freedoms in this country? If a non Seventh Day Adventist man works for Andrews University and wants to buy a bucket of chicken in Berrien Springs, Michigan on a Saturday night, are you telling me that he shouldn't be allowed to because Adventist don't believe in eating meat? And if the poor guy gets a heart attack because of his love for the Colonel's cooking, are you saying that the Seventh Day Adventist health plan shouldn't have to pay for his hospital visit to clear out his arteries? Should an employer who is Jehovah's Witness be allowed to deny blod transfusions to one of his or her employees? Of course not. We all know a stretch when we see one.

The hierarchy of the Catholic Church and their political soul-mates are trying to pull a fast one on the American people. This is not about religious freedom, it's about religious tyranny. Do you honestly believe that if men had to give birth to children we would even be having this debate?

I love what Wendy Kaminer wrote in The Atlantic:

"What accounts for the rhetorical excesses of the Catholic Church and its advocates on the campaign trail and in the media? They reflect some genuine outrage, no doubt. But, in part, the rhetoric is an organizing tool (which may succeed in wresting new concessions from the administration). And in part, it reflects larger rhetorical trends: We inhabit a culture of hyperbole, especially during election years. Every argument is a gunfight (to which someone mistakenly brings a knife), every gunfight is a war, and every war a potential apocalypse.

Still, while the fate of American civilization doesn't depend on this debate about the obligations of church-affiliated institutions to abide by secular law, the stakes are relatively high. As government workers are laid off and government programs shrink, the public role of private, tax-exempt non-profits expands. The stronger their right to dispense public funds and deliver public services according to sectarian religious dictates, the weaker our rights to a non-sectarian public sphere. It's a zero-sum game." [Source]


I disagree with her about one thing: the outrage expressed by church officials might be genuine, but the outrage expressed by the poli-tricksters rallying around this issue are as phony as a W's cowboy persona.

How is Obama Handling Muslim Institutions with all the health care mandates? What are your thoughts on that?

PilotX said...

I still say Barack wins on this one. Sure he compromised but as some pundits pointed out now the argument moves from religious liberty to reproductive rights. If he engages in the first he loses if he engages in the second he wins. He led the rightwing nut jobs into a trap and now he will gain the moderate/independent woman vote.

Man, that's cold. Not only are you a sex slave, getting raped for four months, but the dude doesn't even have the common courtesy to stop talking about some other woman.

I'll bet he didn't even give her a nice parting gift when it was all over.

It just goes to show you the kind of manners someone has who would send airliners into the World Trade Center.

The nerve.

Do you really not understand this issue? Not one person, not even the Goddamn Pope, has said anyone shouldn't be allowed to buy contraception, only that the Catholic Church should not be required to pay for it.

There is a huge difference in having control over a woman's body and insisting on the right not to fund an activity that violates a basic tenet of your faith.

Talk about "inhabiting a culture of hyperbole".

Not true. Santorum wants to overturn the ruling that made contraception legal and return this choice to the states. Google Santorum, better yet don't do that, who knows what you'll get.

@Field POTUS wins on the issue of health insurers paying for contraception. Head wingnut Mitch McConnell and his cronies have already proposed a bill that would allow ALL employers to deny coverage for contraception. The Komen dust up was nothing compared to what will happen if republicans try to tell American women they don't have the right to decide what's best for their health.

Nothing against TaNehisi but I hate the Atlantic. Sullivan is a disingenuous creep.

@Field carrying over from the prior thread...no disrespect meant but I really do miss this blog as it was a year and a half ago. The trolls probably don't realize they're creating Obama supporters with their race-based attacks. Honest debate would be a welcome change. Republicans tell us we're on a plantation yet they haven't made an honest effort to change our minds about POTUS.

Lola Gets said...

The Catholic Church did something similar with DC Government. A lot of mental health services are run by the church and if DC government was going make them do something similar, then the Church was going to stop offering services to needy residents. I'm talking about thousands of people getting help from them, that they were getting government funds to use, and if they didn't get their way, they were going to take their ball and go home. Losers.

Field, this is about the morals and ethics of the Catholic religion....SPIRITUAL PRINCIPLES...something you wouldn't know about because you still have yet to experience them. You are so politically far left that you couldn't possibly understand what's going on. But I must hand it to you. You are a courageous soul even if it means showing a low spiritual IQ.lol

Far left wingnuts are at the other extreme of far right wingnuts. But 'extremism is extremism'. Which means both extremists have a lot in common. They don't get it but will argue for extremism.

Yesterday you gave a great post but today's post is off-the-charts. You should have left this one alone. I bet when you were writing there was a little voice whispering, "there is something wrong with the picture you are painting...it doesn't feel right. Leave this one alone."

Brotha Field, I think you are going to take a beating on this one.

I am still depressed about Whitney. In singing the National Athem, Whitney set an unreachable bar for those singers that follow her. And, she sang it with such ease and grace! Truly God gifted her with a voice unmatched by any human being.

I held my nose and checked out John Gibson , and Glen Beck on the radio yesterday and their take on Whitney Houston's death was that all Black folks that are wealthy spend their money on Crack and party's. The coverage of her death was so respectful. I thought it was disgusting .Down right shameful.

Anonymous said...

It is amazing that some people in America could degrade Whitney Houston's death with racist comments.

Some Americans are evil and come from the bowels of hell. Their brains are twisted and filled with the stench of hatred and degradation toward Blacks. They have white skin but their hearts are black. Yet, they are unconsciously trying to be God. Sick, very sick.

Fox won't last. It's just a matter of time before they destroy themselves.

If you were White, you would think the same as Glen Beck and Gibson. Whites don't have good images of Blacks like Blacks would like. It's hard to be White and superior to think otherwise. It's called White Privilege.

Unfortuately, Blacks aren't doing much to change that "crack image". I love Whitney but between her and that asshole Brown they displayed the typical crazy drug Negro image.

Kola Boof's "I screwed Bin Laden" story is a hoax perpetrated by a crazy person. Only chumps believe it. She's claimed to have had sex with a dozen famous men, including one who died before she was born.

Shady_Grady said...

If men could give birth to children they'd be women.. it's a meaningless hypothetical.

The Catholic Church wasn't trying to outlaw contraception; it was trying to insist on its right not to be forced into paying for it. Huge difference.

The same group of people who smugly shout "if you don't like abortion, don't have one" also say "if you don't like contraception, pay for mine anyway". That doesn't make a whole lot of sense.

The right to do something does not automatically become the right to make someone else pay for it.

Why should contraceptives have no co-pay while drugs to treat cancer, diabetes, hypertension, etc still have a co-pay? This is pure political posturing on both sides.

PC, I loved Whitney as well,but Marvin's rendition of the anthem was in fact better.

Changing {lowering} Standards To Encourage Minority Admissions To Medical School


Economist Mark J. Perry:

1. For those students applying to medical school with average GPAs (3.40 to 3.59) and average MCAT scores (27-29), black applicants were almost three times more likely to be admitted than their Asian counterparts (85.9% vs. 30%), and 2.4 times more likely than their white counterparts (85.9% vs. 35.9%). Likewise, Hispanic students with average GPAs and average MCAT scores were about twice as likely to be accepted as white applicants (68.7% vs. 35.9%), and more than twice as likely as Asian applicants (68.7% vs. 30%).

2. For students applying to medical school with slightly below average GPAs of 3.20-3.39 and slightly below average MCAT scores of 24-26 (first column in the table), black applicants were more than 8 times as likely to be admitted as Asians (67.3% vs. 7.7%), and more than 5 times as likely as whites.

Bottom Line: In my previous post, I concluded that the medical school acceptance data suggest that medical schools must have admission policies that favor blacks and Hispanics over Asian and white students. Even if factors other than GPA and MCAT scores (which are probably the two most important ones) are considered for admission to medical school, wouldn’t it still be very hard to conclude that admissions policies to medical schools are completely “race-neutral” and completely free of any racial preferences?

Did you ever watch the wretched reality show she did with her ex-husband Bobby Brown? Whitney DEGRADED herself by showing all her warts and imperfections with her vile, felon ex-husband.

Years ago a white guy on my job, who once was a fan of Houston, said she looked like a CRACK WHORE which she did at the time he said it. There was NOTHING I could say. I had to agree. I sure a lot of white people said the same thing. Just like a lot of white people wondered why she married the baby daddy thug Bobby Brown.

The Catholic Church retains the religious right to have any person working in the actual church to not have contraception. What the Law did was place all the non-church activities on an equal footing with comparable secular functions.
Essentially, the Bishop/Cardinal secretary may not have coverage...but the 20-something woman working in the church-owned parking lot/rental agency/etc would have contraception covered.
EEK!

You do realize, young wingnut welfare posters, that you are repeating the tired canard of 'landlord rites'...where Goober claims they don't have to rent to 'miggers'?

Somehow, I do believe this explains your dateless situation.
