This story out of the UK seems to making big headlines overseas. It involves the head of of the FIA, (International Automobile Federation) Max Mosley, who has apparently beclowned himself by taking part in a “sadomasochistic Nazi orgy” with five prostitutes that reportedly involved Nazi role-playing in a “torture chamber” in Chelsea.
Formula One’s governing body is keeping its distance from sexual allegations in a British tabloid newspaper about its president, Max Mosley.
“This is a matter between Mr. Mosley and the paper in question,” an International Automobile Federation (FIA) spokesman said.
The revelations are particularly damaging because Mr Mosley’s father, Oswald, was the pre-war leader of Britain’s fascist “blackshirts” who invited Adolf Hitler to his wedding.
Mr Mosley was said to have spoken in German and brandished a leather whip as he beat the women after allowing himself to be subjected to a humiliating inspection for lice. The News of the World said that Mr Mosley paid £2,500 cash for the prostitutes’ services.
The five-hour orgy ended with “the prostitutes drinking wine while Mr Mosley, 67, recovered his composure with a cup of tea”.
The revelations angered Jewish groups, who called for his resignation from one of the most powerful positions in world sport.
Motor racing insiders also questioned whether his position was tenable. The FIA does not simply administer Formula One but all other motor racing championships and even holds sway over road safety organisations such as the AA and RAC.
Video here. Warning!!!: not for the faint of heart…involves a lot of bending over and being spanked.
Kind of makes our country’s sex scandals look tame in comparison.
If Obama winds up being the nominee, as he almost certainly will be, Republicans will have a field day with ads like this one:
Get a load of this telling exhortation from My DD:
If we choose Obama as our nominee, we are locked-in to this narrative. There is no going back, no bogus NBC polls to save the day. No Anderson Cooper softball interviews or phony charges of racism that will rescue us.
You mean this guy is so bad, even the usual Democrat play-book election year shenanigans won’t help? Awww Shucky darns!
I love it when the mask slips, a little, don’t you?

The Dutch prosecutor’s office is preparing to take legal action against the maker of an ‘anti-Koran’ film in an attempt to ease tensions over the film’s release, the Dutch foreign minister said on Monday. Maxime Verhagen told ambassadors from 26 Muslim (countries?) that he was happy with the relatively calm reaction he had witnessed since the short film was posted on sites Thursday by Dutch MP Geert Wilders, adding that the film in no way reflected the religious views of the Dutch government.
Dr. Rusty Shackleford ofThe Jawa Report wants to know what the charge is going to be: “Failure to submit?”
I want to know: If you’re happy with the “relatively calm reaction” to the film…why throw the film maker under the bus?
Radio Netherlands quotes the Dutch foreign minister as saying prosecutors are looking into it and the last line of this DPA report agrees. Scum:
The Dutch prosecutor’s office is preparing to take legal action against the maker of an ‘anti-Koran’ film in an attempt to ease tensions over the film’s release, the Dutch foreign minister said on Monday…
Although moderate Islamic groups have said the film is “nothing new” and have made appeals for Muslims to “react calmly and within the law,” the prospect of a backlash in the Islamic world remains a distinct possibility.
Obama represents “positive change” for America and the World. Obama is capable of stirring the “melting pot” into a better “molten America”.
If you recall, it’s inclusion among other Obama supporting blogs at the community website caused a minor firestorm a couple of weeks ago, causing the embarrassed Obama campaign to remove it, while intimating that it was a hoax. (It wasn’t).
“In America,” Obama says, “we have this strong bias toward individual action. You know, we idolize the John Wayne hero who comes in to correct things with both guns blazing. But individual actions, individual dreams, are not sufficient. We must unite in collective action, build collective institutions and organizations.”
Organize and mobilize more black churches:
In an interview after the class, Obama again spoke of the need to organize and mobilize the economic power and moral fervor of black churches. He also argued that as a state senator he might help bring this about faster than as a community organizer or civil rights lawyer.
The Christian right: intolerant, narrow-minded, falsely nostalgic:
“The right wing, the Christian right, has done a good job of building these organizations of accountability, much better than the left or progressive forces have. But it’s always easier to organize around intolerance, narrow-mindedness, and false nostalgia. And they also have hijacked the higher moral ground with this language of family values and moral responsibility.
It’s society’s job to teach children about the left’s version of morality:
“Now we have to take this same language–these same values that are encouraged within our families–of looking out for one another, of sharing, of sacrificing for each other–and apply them to a larger society. Let’s talk about creating a society, not just individual families, based on these values. Right now we have a society that talks about the irresponsibility of teens getting pregnant, not the irresponsibility of a society that fails to educate them to aspire for more.”
Obama goes to the Million Man March:
Obama took time off from attending campaign coffees to attend October’s Million Man March in Washington, D.C. His experiences there only reinforced his reasons for jumping into politics.
“What I saw was a powerful demonstration of an impulse and need for African-American men to come together to recognize each other and affirm our rightful place in the society,” he said. “There was a profound sense that African-American men were ready to make a commitment to bring about change in our communities and lives.
“But what was lacking among march organizers was a positive agenda, a coherent agenda for change. Without this agenda a lot of this energy is going to dissipate. Just as holding hands and singing ‘We shall overcome’ is not going to do it, exhorting youth to have pride in their race, give up drugs and crime, is not going to do it if we can’t find jobs and futures for the 50 percent of black youth who are unemployed, underemployed, and full of bitterness and rage.
“Exhortations are not enough, nor are the notions that we can create a black economy within America that is hermetically sealed from the rest of the economy and seriously tackle the major issues confronting us,” Obama said.
Oh, here it comes…the “mean, cruel” Republicans:
We must deal with the forces that are depressing wages, lopping off people’s benefits right and left, and creating an earnings gap between CEOs and the lowest-paid worker that has risen in the last 20 years from a ratio of 10 to 1 to one of better than 100 to 1.
“This doesn’t suggest that the need to look inward emphasized by the march isn’t important, and that these African-American tribal affinities aren’t legitimate. These are mean, cruel times, exemplified by a ‘lock ’em up, take no prisoners’ mentality that dominates the Republican-led Congress. Historically, African-Americans have turned inward and towards black nationalism whenever they have a sense, as we do now, that the mainstream has rebuffed us, and that white Americans couldn’t care less about the profound problems African-Americans are facing.”
White America doesn’t care? This is the real ‘post racial uniter’, folks.
One thing that seemed positive (to me) about the Million Man March was that it asked men to take a pledge to eschew the sorts of pathologies that often plague black communities. (Click on link for Youtube video of Pledge).
But that seems to have left Obama cold:
“exhorting youth to have pride in their race, give up drugs and crime, is not going to do it” …
It seems to me that Obama’s main criticism of the Million Man March was that it didn’t offer the types of collectivist solutions “for change” that he was so into, (and still is).
Obama didn’t have anything to say about this Farrakhan interview from 1995, before the Million Man March:
Via Gateway Pundit, we find a Huffpo writer enthralled with the similarities between Obama and some 20th century Marxist philosophers. Yes, you heard right…they’re not even trying to hide this stuff, anymore, brazen commies that they are:
Listening to Obama, I’m actually reminded of the writings of many mid-twentieth century Frankfurt school Marxist philosophers, particularly the work of Ernst Bloch and Theodero Adorno. In fact, Obama’s entire political ideology is thematic zed in the title of one of Bloch’s most profound volumes, The Principle of Hope. Bloch’s notion of hope as an indexation of what he called a politics of the “not-yet-here” resonates deeply with much of Obama’s rhetoric. We can hear the traces of this earlier Marxist tradition when Obama makes comments such as “hope…is all those men and women who are not content to settle on the world as it is, [but instead] who have the courage to remake the world as it should be.”
