Adelphi brings banana republic pomp to university lacrosse games

Adelphi brings banana republic pomp to university lacrosse games

The Athletic Director and Lacrosse coach at a private university on Long Island, NY have claimed that they “were obliged” to play a campaign speech of President Donald Trump that was set to music as the college’s men’s lacrosse team entered the playing field before games Adelphi Athletic Director, Danny McCabe, cited the policy adopted by the sports team regarding ‘warm-up’ music as having been followed explicitly. The policy directs that warm-up music must not contain “vulgarity or inappropriate subject matter.” McCabe apparently did not consider the aggressive promotion of xenophobic and military themes to be either vulgar or inappropriate, […]

30 percent is not a majority

30 percent is not a majority

by Patrick Devlin Only partisans ensnared by duopoly insist that there are only 2 choices in American elections. In 2012, 57 percent of American voters voted for president. Obama won 51 percent. Romney won 48 percent. That means the president was ‘elected’ by about 30 percent of American voters. It is not my fault that the status quo legacy parties have pursued a program to discourage voting reduce voter choice and stifle democracy in our country. Recall in the mentioned election, 2012, our presidential candidates chose to not debate about: imperial war and the cost of military industrialism, the failure […]

Trump-thugs: The most fabulous and violent narrow-mindedness America has ever seen (yet)

Trump-thugs: The most fabulous and violent narrow-mindedness America has ever seen (yet)

by Patrick Devlin As the bully-boy coward Donald Trump spoke at a rally at a Christian college on January 20 in Oklahoma, a gang of his middle-aged flabby thugs assaulted audience members who chose to silently protest the public event. Strangely, for this audience of self-proclaimed Christian Trump-thugs, no one mentioned the words of Jesus; “I say to you that everyone who is angry with his brother will be liable to judgment; whoever insults his brother will be liable to the council; and whoever says, ‘You fool!’ will be liable to the hell of fire.” The assaults have now become […]

Donald Trump: America’s Fascism Whisperer

Donald Trump: America’s Fascism Whisperer

by Patrick Devlin A duo of brutish Donald Trump supporters assaulted two silent protesters at a campaign rally in Lowell, MA earlier this week to the triumphalist audience chants of “USA-USA-USA and “Trump-Trump-Trump”. The attack, a video of which has surfaced on the Internet, was aimed at two sign holding event participants who remained silent during their protest and up until their forced removal by Trump hired security personnel. One of the protestors held a sign the read, “America’s already great”. The assault was carried out by two paunchy and angry white middle aged thugs and was egged on by […]

A Thank/sgiving Day Appreciation

A Thank/sgiving Day Appreciation

by Patrick Devlin Thank you NSA, for deciding that I cannot have privacy…ever : your fascism is breathtaking. Thank you oligarchs, for decimating the middle class and ending class mobility forever : your greed is stultifying.

Christ Needs to Tap One of Those Rich Dudes in Heaven

Christ Needs to Tap One of Those Rich Dudes in Heaven

by Patrick Devlin Biblical financial self-help pitchman Dave Ramsey, whose get-rich-scheme is to convince followers of the first century homeless preacher called Jesus of Nazareth (who advised cult members to “give up all you own and follow me”) that they can become get-rich-quick-Christians by buying his greed absolving screeds and who is featured weekly on the TV station owned by televangelist-presidential candidate-sect leader Pat Robertson, advised viewers recently that, stunningly, Christ was a heretic. Ramsey was hawking his latest tract, The Legacy Journey: A Radical View of Biblical Wealth and Generosity when he advised Robertson and his TVland fold that […]

Worker Solidarity, Eugene Debs and Why Labor Day isn’t International Workers’ Day

Worker Solidarity, Eugene Debs and Why Labor Day isn’t International Workers’ Day

by Patrick Devlin A salute to working women and men in America on Labor Day! Even after 50 years of stagnant wages, union-busting, job outsourcing, and the appalling lapdoggery of politicians in both legacy parties who serve the interests of the modern oligarchs – we are obliged to stand with our fellow workers and acknowledge that our work makes our land. And, remember also that it is not to enrich the selfish wealthy that we work…at least that is what Eugene Debs believed. “I am opposing a social order in which it is possible for one man who does absolutely […]
