Sinead’s Hand Well Worth Watching

My wife suggested that I view this video from Ireland. I highly recommend it for folks as it is creative while making you think and personalizes an issue that I think too many people only think about abstractly and reflexively. Well done!

  1. This is the website for James O’Queef not James O’Keefe (the patriot), WTF is “social justice”….is that what Van Jones was talking about? He got his justice indeed. What happened in your childhood to turn you into such a whiny, liberal, self-hating, white-guilt having chode? I don’t get it. I guess it’s all about gay pride? I dunno. Your son must be really proud of you.

  2. Hi Al,
    Thanks for writing.
    Personally I see myself as a patriot who is fighting so that others can exercise the liberties that you and I take for granted such as the right to marry or not be cheated by wealthy financial corporations. I know my marriage is not threatened if gays or lesbians marry. Is yours really threatened?
    BTW: Social Justice in the Green’s Ten Key Values is that:
    “All persons should have the rights and opportunity to benefit equally from the resources afforded us by society and the environment. We must consciously confront in ourselves, our organizations, and society at large, barriers such as racism and class oppression, sexism and homophobia, ageism and disability, which act to deny fair treatment and equal justice under the law.”
    One last thing, Al. Why hide behind a pseudonym and a non-existent email address? Are you not strong enough to stand up for your ideas with your own name?

  3. James, thanks for setting the record straight to this Al guy on the issues. People just don’t understand us. I think Van Jones said it best when he said “The white polluters and the white environmentalists are essentially steering poison into the people of color communities because they don’t have a racial justice frame.” I think together, you being the white environmentalist and I the white polluter can work on steering some of the pollution to our own local minority communities. (video clip here:

    And can we just clear some other things up about what we believe, there is no such thing as “homophobia”, that was a word made up by the gays. I’ve yet to meet anyone with a phobia(fear) of homos. I know of people who are grossed out by the idea of one dude ramming his junk into another dudes poop chute, so for the record the new word is homogrossia. I think you’d agree. On another topic, I’ve got some left over carbon credits I can mail you if that’s cool. Or I can just fly there and drop them off, either way. I just hope that our Green Party can really get out there and do our thing like our ACORN friends, they are awesome! Our green party fought the ugly tide of racism when we went to bat for those white firefighters who were discriminated against in Connecticut. That’s what makes us awesome! Go Green Party, Go Van Jones, Go ACORN!! SOCIAL JUSTICE!! LET’S PAY THOSE REPARATIONS!! (seriously James, we haven’t gotten your check yet, we need you to send a check for 5,000 a month, starting this month, make it out to “reparations for blacks and indians”) Also, please join us on our movement for social justice in sports, we are DEMANDING that all basketball teams are equally represented by all races! AND no more overpaid players, each team will have 2 blacks, 2 whites, 2 hispanics, 2 asians, 2 middle easterners and 1 eskimo and ALL will be paid $40,000 annually. REFORM THE NBA NOW NO MORE RACISM IN THE NBA SOCIAL JUSTICE NOW!! Thanks again James!

  4. Hi Kareem,
    Thanks for posting. In regards to environmental racism, there are plenty of cities and towns that have been dumped on whether because they are poor or non-white. Lawrence, MA, a city which is a majority Latino, comes to mind with at least three incinerators in or down wind of it.
    On your contention that there is “no such thing as “homophobia””, what on planet do you live? As Wikipedia reports:
    “In the United States, the FBI reported that 15.6% of hate crimes reported to police in 2004 were founded on perceived sexual orientation. Sixty-one percent of those attacks were against gay men, 14% against lesbians, 2% against heterosexuals and 1% against bisexuals, while attacks against LGBT people at large made up 20%.[93] Violence based on perceived gender identity was not recorded in the report.
    The FBI reported that for 2006, hate crimes against gays increased to 16%, from 14% in 2005, as percentage of total documented hate crimes across the U.S. The 2006 annual report, released on November 19, 2007, also said that hate crimes based on sexual orientation are the third most common type, behind race and religion.”
    And there are more reports at

  5. Hi James, I’m a transgendered person who would be interested in baby sitting, is that cool? I’m also friends with Van Jones, aren’t you a supporter of his? (9/11 was an inside job right?)
