Bob Dylan with Sara. From the 1976 album Desire.

Sara - Bob Dylan from Ismael Alexander Aguilar Garrido on Vimeo.

Kind of a tribute to his wife - even though they were in the process of divorcing. He laid all his heart in it. Must have been quite painful.

Fast forward twenty years. Eels with Your lucky day in hell. From their debut album Beautiful Freak.

US alternative rock band, formed in Los Feliz, CA in 1995. Frontman Mark Oliver Everett aka "E" is the band's only constant member.

Exhibit 1

Belgian "quality" daily De Standaard gleefully reminds us that as of June 2015, more than half of butchers in Brussels Capital Region are halal.

 photo brussels_butchers_halal_zpshbfdmufq.jpg

"Brussels Capital Region [give and take 1.2 million inhabitants - MFBB] currently counts 256 independent butchers [i.e. not counted are those in super- and hypermarkets - MFBB]. Of those, more than half do not offer pork meat or derivations, but meat prepared according to islamic guidelines. 141 butchers in the capital have the halal label, that's 55 per cent, according to La Dernière Heure.

The numbers come from the Brussels regional agency Atrium. The halal butchers are situated mainly in Molenbeek, a part of Anderlecht and Schaarbeek and in Sint-Gillis."

De Standaard helpfully adds:

"The halal butchers serve non-muslims too. Meat is often cheaper than the meat from traditional butchers."

Exhibit 2.


"In the Brussels commune of Sint-Agatha-Berchem, police every Friday closes off a street so that local muslims can say their prayers. The reason: the adjacent Al Inaba mosque cannot take anymore the number of faithful. Them poor poor poor muslims must make do with the Hubert Blauwet street right around the corner. "For safety reasons", police has decided to block off the street during prayers.

And that's how it goes. Before long some local politician, presumably of the Parti Socialiste, will discover this appalling situation and come to the conclusion that there is but one solution: to build a bigger mosque with taxpayer dough. Infidel taxpayer dough, to be sure.

Exhibit 3.

In the town of Aalst, some twenty-five kloms west of Brussels, the chief of the "Groendienst", say Park Maintenance, opines that Aalst should levy a tax on lawns. Via HLN Online:

"Bart Backaert, Head of Park Maintenance in Aalst, proposes a "lawn tax". "Lawns are less good for nature than most people think" he says. "All of Flanders is built over and a large percentage of the remaining green consists of private gardens. There's a lot of nature to be saved there, but then we have to manage our gardens in a different way. Eighty to a hundred per cent of our gardens are grassfields, but these are green deserts. A honeybee, butterfly or beetle does not find food in them and starves. On top of all that, it requires work [leftists in general and ecolunatics in particular are allergic for the word "work" - MFBB]: some people mow their lawn twice a week and pour poisonous pesticides on them. That lawnmower emits CO2, not to mention the noise". Therefore Backaert says that the town should impose a tax on lawns. "Evading the tax is very easy: simply transform your lawn into an ecological paradise, a garden full of flowers or a copse of wood with fruit trees. I do not advocate a complete elimination of lawns. Children must be able to play in the garden. But we are far too much indoctrinated into thinking that a garden is only beautiful with a nicely trimmed lawn".

No asshole, we are not too much "indoctrinated" into thinking that a garden is only beautiful with a nicely trimmed lawn. If anything, we are (far) too much indoctrinated that human CO2 emissions actually matter, courtesy legions of green fanatics like you with dark inhuman fantasies in grisly corners of their minds. Beware of fellas who are more smitten by beetles or, for that matter, earthworms, than by humans. People like well-trimmed lawns because they are to a garden what well-groomed hair is to a head - a kindergarten lesson you obviously flunked btw. I suppose that indeed beetles, butterflies, spiders and stuff prefer hedges over lawns, but don't worry, your average garden is bordered by hedges, flower- and treelines, bushes and what not, and that's where them l'il beasties can breathe, defecate, copulate, have a BBQ, read a Rachel Carson book, whatever. I am not a Park Maintenance honcho, but there's something I know re the creepy crawlers and that's apparently terra incognita knowledge for our green lunatic Mr Backaert. Via The Globe and Mail:

"... This online resource tells us that there are an estimated 10 quintillion insects on Earth. That’s 10 followed by 18 zeros. Taking the Earth’s human population at seven billion, that means there are 1,428,571,428.57 insects for every person on the planet. Let’s round it out to say there are about 1.4 billion insects for every human. (Incidentally, this doesn’t include spiders, because they’re arachnids, not insects.)

This got us wondering about approximately how much humanity is outweighed by all those little critters. So we did the following, very rough calculation: Assuming the weight of an average insect is 3 milligrams (as is the case with ants) and the average weight of a person is 60 kilograms, then the weight of the world’s insect population is about 70 times that of its human population."

So converting our lawns into urban jungles WON'T - MAKE - ANY - SIGNIFICANT - DIFFERENCE for the planet's insect population, there are more than enough already, got that, you fool?

What will make a difference is the ump-ump-ump-umpteenth tax hike our moral betters are planning to visit on us, because make no mistake, every single foolishness concocted by our red and green ecoguerillas invariably starts with letting up little balloons, if possible by gullible minions like Bart Backaert, so as to minimize the risk of negative fallout for the next elections. I suppose that it's the same in towns and cities the world over, can't change that, but people in positions like Backaert almost invariably thank their job to some services paid to local politician so-and-so, that's how municipal elections work.

And for God's sake, I can live with that.

What annoys me is that I'm sure that there's right now some members of the Aalst City Council who harbor wet dreams of introducing yet another tax. The idea may have come from Backaert, but you know how it goes. "Jeminy Bart, what a swell idea!!! Them Formica pratensis and stag beetles definitely need more Lebensraum! You know what, float it, we'll get some friendly reporter to publish an article on it so that people get warmed up to the idea!"

Outlaw Mike loves nature. I sure do. It's not that I don't see the valuable input of your average natural conservation organization.

But the green movement as a whole has been hijacked by ecolunatics with a socialist syllabus.

Either way - that's what's happening in Belgium right now. The islamization of our country is in full swing. Meanwhile, the dwindling autochton population is fooled into believing that the real danger facing us is too many lawns.

French Emperor Napoleon Buonaparte's ballsy (see photo) swagger and shrewd tactical insight on the battlefield was no match for the vigilant Belgian Police this 18th of June. This time, contrary to his brush with the Brits on the same field some time earlier, there was no escaping for the man from Corsica: he was taken prisoner by our brave men and women in blue (and flashy orange):

Re-enactor Frank Samson, who's been playing the role of Napoleon on this field during historical re-enactments since 2005, had the greatest difficulty to prevent Belgian police from hauling his car away, since he had parked it where it was not allowed. Only after heroic rhetorics and the promise that he would never invade Belgium again, were they persuaded to look the other way. This time. (photo by Loic Vigouroux).

A compelling article over at American Thinker by Selwyn Duke:

"Have you heard about the millions of Chinese flooding into the Tibet? With their displacement of the native peoples and the supplanting of Tibetan with Chinese culture, anthropologists and human rights activists have labeled the colonization “cultural genocide.” (See here, here, here, here, and here, for example.) It is a cause célèbre with its own popular bumper sticker.

The situation corresponds precisely to what’s happening in most Western countries — most notably the United States — except for one minor detail:

No compassionate liberal activists call it cultural and demographic genocide.

They call it “diversity.”

Everything else reflects the West’s immigrationist malaise. This cultural sickness is not limited to America. The Swedish multiculturalist and anti-Western social engineer Mona Sahlin, commenting on the planned Islamization of her land, said in 2001, "[T]he Swedes must be integrated into the new Sweden; the old Sweden is never coming back."

The old Hazleton is likely never coming back, either. There recently was a news story about how the Pennsylvania town has gone from 5 percent to 37 percent Hispanic in just a decade, between 2000 and 2010. Another news piece, one at titled “Not all in Hazleton convinced old town, new immigrants can co-exist happily” (they must be “racists”), points out that “[f]or years, the hospital ran deficits because of the number of people visiting the emergency room who could not pay” and that “[w]hen the Hispanic population started to boom in the early 2000s, Hazleton’s crime rate rose….” Of course, I’m sure this is mere correlation. Because we all know that our strength lies in our displac…er, I mean, diversity.

One thing we can say about Hazelton’s transformation, at least, is that it was driven by economic and lifestyle factors such as jobs and better neighborhoods. Not so with Obama’s amnesty plan to use illegal aliens — or, if that term is offensive, let’s say, undocumented Democrats — as “seedlings” to further effect the “fundamental transformation” of America. Oh, you haven’t heard about this? Well, it’s not the kind of scheme laid out in official policy papers or analyzed in The New York Times. But the gist of it, talk-show host Sue Payne told us while reporting on a conversation she became privy to involving federal officials, is that “new Americans” (read: “foreigners”) would “navigate, not assimilate” as they “take over the host,” create a “country within a country” and start “pushing the citizens into the shadows” (click here for more). The moral of this story? No one is talking about “assimilation” except suckers, who, it seems, are natural-born every minute.

Speaking of which, it’s certainly tempting to blame all this on Barack Obama. But note that the majority of Hazleton’s transformation occurred under George W. Bush’s watch — not that Mr. Mush deserves all the blame, either. Understand that the die for our fundamental transformation was cast long ago, in 1965, with the Immigration Reform and Nationality Act (gracias, Ted Kennedy). It radically changed our immigration model, creating a situation wherein for 50 years 85 percent of our immigrants have hailed from the Third World and Asia. And if demographics are destiny, we should ponder the almost unprecedented demographic shift the act has wrought. In 1965, whites were almost 90 percent of the population.

Now non-Hispanic whites are down to 63 percent.

Oh, did I mention race? So sorry. I guess I should be sent to that cornfield populated by the likes of Jimmy “the Greek” Snyder and James Watson. Except that to the left, this is all about race and ethnicity.

Do you think Mexican-born Univision journalist Jorge Ramos — who recently (and poorly) debated Ann Coulter — and his La Raza soulless mates would make amnesty their raison d’ être if most of our illegals were white Scandinavians? Don’t kid yourself — ethnic bias animates them.

Then there was the Huffington Compost’s cutsie piece “So You're About To Become A Minority...,” which gloatingly mentions demographic projections indicating that whites will be a minority countrywide in 30 years. It sarcastically asks, “So what's a privileged white person to do?” and then, “to ease the white transition into life as a minority,” as the Compost puts it, provides a spoof PSA video that mocks white society. Could you imagine leftists taking this approach with one of the many primitive tribes facing decimation?

 photo HuffCompost_zpss64y5zcm.jpg

Yet the Compost has nothing on our post-racial president. Obama, who perhaps takes no issue with illegal aliens because, as his Dreams book states, he finds whites “alien,” has overseen a Department of Justice that won’t pursue voting-rights cases in which the victims are white. He also has spoken positively of America’s demographic genocide, though he doesn’t put it in quite those terms. Like Britain’s Labour Party — which, admitted a former Tony Blair advisor in 2009, used massive Third World immigration to “rub the Right's nose in diversity and render their arguments out of date” — he uses code words. Obama says that because our country is becoming a “hodgepodge of different folks,” because of “diversity,” he’s confident conservatism will be drowned out. My, I’ve always dreamt of living in a hodgepodge. Haven’t you?

Note here that “diversity” has become a code word for, as American Thinker put it, "let's have fewer white people.” Evidence? While Hazleton’s transformation is portrayed positively as diversity, when the white population of an area increases, it may be called a “bleaching out.” Yeah, The New York Times actually used that term when referring to the white techies moving into San Francisco’s Mission District. I wonder, can we call our wider demographic upheaval “the browning of America”? Or does that make it cornfield time again?

None of this should come as any surprise because leftists are the gurus of group politics, the pashas of polarization. They’ve given us affirmative action, quotas, Ebonics, identity politics, “gender” identity, critical race theory and white-privilege conferences. Then, when someone turns around and sheds light on their race-oriented immigration policy, they try to silence him with screams of “racism!” lest anyone catch on to what they’re really up to.

Race and ethnicity matter because, as Dr. Walter Williams put it, they can serve as a “proxy” for harder-to-observe qualities. A couple of these are ideology and voting tendencies: The groups represented by 85 percent of our new immigrants vote for socialist-oriented Democrats between 70 and 90 percent of the time. Leftist immigrationists are importing their voters — and the destruction of Western civilization.

Of course, demographic and cultural genocide is not only nothing new, but the historical norm. The indigenous Ainus have largely been subsumed by the Japanese; North Africa was once Roman and Catholic, then it was a Germanic Vandal kingdom and later became Arab and Muslim; and we no longer have tribes called the Alans, Langobards, Illyrians, Harii, Thuringii or Sarmatians. Oh, their genes and perhaps even memes are extant in modern populations, but their cultures, per se, are no more.

This may be a bad thing or it may be a good thing — the vanquishing of primitive Aztec culture ended wide-scale human sacrifice — but it is a real thing. When Muammar Gaddafi mentioned in 2006 that “[w]e have 50 million Muslims in Europe,” it wasn’t followed by the lament, “And, man, they’re all gonna’ be assimilated and ‘pop!’ goes the caliphate.” Rather, he astutely noted that “without swords, without guns, without conquest, [they] will turn [Europe] into a Muslim continent within a few decades.”

The people make the culture and government, not the other way around. Import enough Mexicans or Muslims into the U.S. and you no longer have Western civilization; you have Mexico Norte or Iran West. Would this be preferable? If you’ve evaluated south-of-the-border cultures or Dar al-Islam and concluded it would be, then you should accept that “Our strength lies in our diversity” really means “Our strength lies in our destruction” — and welcome it.

This certainly is the left’s perspective. Remember the old Stanford University chant, led by Jesse Jackson, “Hey, hey, ho, ho, Western Culture’s got to go!”? Well, it’s going, going…and will be gone unless we make some profoundly radical changes. It’s cultural and demographic genocide, generally lamented except in the one case in which, labeled diversity, it’s trumpeted.

That would be the case of the one civilization leftists hate with every fiber of their being."

You bet.

What a difference the Obama "Administration" makes! In Jakarta, Indonesia's capital, the US Ambassador saw fit to move the July 4 celebrations one month forward lest they don't fall during ramadan.

The key points from Fox News's Todd Starnes take on the disgraceful subject:

"US Embassy in Jakarta moves Fourth of July celebration to June to accommodate Muslims

The United States Embassy in Jakarta, Indonesia celebrated Independence Day a month early — to accommodate the country’s Muslim population.

It seems the Fourth of July is right smack in the middle of Ramadan this year so the embassy decided to move America’s birthday to the Fourth of June.

“We are celebrating a month early to respect the holy month of Ramadan,” Ambassador Robert Blake told a gathering at the embassy.

It sounds like every day is April Fool’s Day at the U.S. Embassy in Jakarta. I wouldn’t be surprised if they observe Good Friday on a Tuesday.

The Jakarta Post reported on the holiday swap. I suppose that Muslims would be too busy with their fasting and prayers to enjoy an all-beef frank and fireworks.

And as the Obama administration constantly reminds us — we simply cannot offend Islamic sensibilities.

The State Department downplayed the change during a June 9 press briefing by pointing out that official Fourth of June celebrations are not meant for the average American living in Jakarta.

“These are not events for the American citizen population that’s resident there,” spokesman Jeff Rathke told a reporter. “It’s not like a picnic you have with your family and friends when you’re back here in the U.S. These are official events that are — the purpose of which is to represent the United States to the host nation and to the host government.”

That explanation did not set well with Jim Hanson, the executive director for the Center for Security Policy on June 10.

“I think the problem is we have become overly sensitive to Islamic sensibilities,” he told Fox & Friends. “Ramadan is a time when most Muslims fast from sunrise to sunset. Well, if we wanted to be courteous, we could’ve just held the celebration at night. You know what else is great after sunset, fireworks?”

Mr. Hanson has a point. Sparklers aren’t nearly as fun during daylight hours."

US Ambassador Robert O. Blake, an Obamba appointee of course, is a fucking COWARD and a dhimmi. I have never been an ambassador, nor will I ever be one, but I do know that embassies represent their sovereign states. As such, the country on whose territory an embassy finds itself, cannot have a say on what happens on the embassy's premise. I don't know if there are muslim countries of which independence day falls on Christmas and which happen to have embassies here, but of one thing you can be certain: they would NOT, repeat, NOT, move that day forward or backward out of respect for our 'sensitivities'.

Robert O. Blake, the asshole, just did such a thing. As an ambassador of the supposedly mightiest nation on the planet. Congratulations with representatives like this weasel.
