What's the difference between the New York Post and Park Slope?
I'm so angry about this that I can barely communicate. The principal of Khalil Gibran International Academy, a Bklyn middle school set to open this fall, has been forced to resign. Her offense? Explaining the meaning of the word "intifada". The resignation comes amidst pressure from Bloomberg, the New York Post, and the President of the United Federation of Teachers (*my* union!). None of these Islamophobic fuckwads surprise me in showing their true colors. What does surprise me slightly (though I should know better by now) is that the supposedly liberal parents of Park Slope and Boerum Hill are themselves so blatantly racist. Fake-ass Free Tibet Organic Co-op pseudo-multicultural bastards!!! Reminds me of somethin' Phil Ochs used to say :
Ah, the people of old Mississippi
Should all hang their heads in shame
Now I can't understand how their minds work
What's the matter don't they watch Les Crain?
But if you ask me to bus my children
I hope the cops take down your name
So love me, love me, love me, I'm a liberal
