The Un-Story

September 21, 2011

Have you been interested in the American hikers who trespassed into Iran?  I have not.  To me, two (originally three) educated and arrogant Americans assumed they could go wherever the hell they wanted to, because, you know, they are Americans. This little “get to know them” piece does not do much for them.

In the Middle East, Bauer planned to spend time “absorbing on the ground whatever he could in the Arab world and offered to contribute stories to us,” Sandy Close, executive director of California-based New America Media, told CNN in 2009.

In other words, does whatever the hell he wants wherever the hell he wants to and profit from it.  Because “sharing” in white educated male (and reasonably attractive white educated female) means profit, –selling stories, blogs, advertisements, etc.  Same old shit, different day.

And we all know, we all fucking know, there would be no way in hell two (originally three) Iranians would be able to claim they accidentally wandered into the United States if they started a little hike in Canada or Mexico.  Those two (originally three) Iranians would be in Guantanamo Bay (or the like) faster than one could say “What about those American hikers that stumbled into Iran.”

Fascism is what Fascism does.

    “And we all know, we all fucking know, there would be no way in hell two (originally three) Iranians would be able to claim they accidentally wandered into the United States if they started a little hike in Canada or Mexico.”

    It’s not funny, but I had some very comedic visions from that. “The Adventures of the Curious Iranians.”

    “To me, two (originally three) educated and arrogant Americans assumed they could go wherever the hell they wanted to, because, you know, they are Americans.”
    Yes, the entitlement knows no bounds, and the usual issues crop up whenever these types go someplace “to study” the “natives.”
