I had no idea who Colin Kaepernick is until quite recently. It turns out he’s the 49rs quarterback guy who started kneeling on one knee at the national anthem, a sign of protest that I, former Catholic schoolgirl, find incongruously reverential,

Genuflection (or genuflexion), bending at least one knee to the ground, was from early times a gesture of deep respect for a superior. Genuflection (or genuflexion), bending at least one knee to the ground, was from early times a gesture of deep respect for a superior.

So much for that.

The quarterback apparently also {hearts} Fidel, unhesitantly repeating an old Castro propaganda point,

“One thing that Fidel Castro did do is they have the highest literacy rate because they invest more in their education system than they do in their prison system, which we do not do here, even though we’re fully capable of doing that.”“One thing that Fidel Castro did do is they have the highest literacy rate because they invest more in their education system than they do in their prison system, which we do not do here, even though we’re fully capable of doing that.”

Never mind the fact that the budget of the U.S. Dept. of Education alone (not including local school districts’ budgets) is almost the size of Cuba’s entire Gross Domestic Product; never mind that the Dept. of Ed.’s $77billion is greater than the prison system’s $39billion annual price to taxpayers; never mind that Cuba’s so-called “literacy rate” is based on numbers provided by the Communist regime that are not independently verified; Fidel Castro

repeated incessantly that under him, Cubans are “the most cultured people in the world,” even the prostitutes, while redoing the excellent, definitive Don Quijote de la Mancha 4th Centenary edition by the Real Academia Española. Fidel had Hugo Chavez abridge it, remove the essay “Una novela para el siglo XXI” by long-time foe Mario Vargas Llosa, and replaced that essay with a short preface by José Saramago, a much friendlier Communist. The Communist regime can’t have “the most cultured people in the world” exposed to an essay which essence is that Don Quijote’s a free men’s novel.repeated incessantly that under him, Cubans are “the most cultured people in the world,” even the prostitutes, while redoing the excellent, definitive Don Quijote de la Mancha 4th Centenary edition by the Real Academia Española.

Look, we all know about celebrity displays of ignorance and stupidity, to the point that by now it’s rather apparent that ignorance and stupidity are job requirements to celebrity status.

But by now, if ignorance were bliss, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick would likely be the happiest man in the world.

Nothing says “peaceful coexistence” like a wave of arson:

Fires have broken out from the north to the south in the last two days. The Israel Police is saying that “a wave of arson has befallen Israel” after 220 fires were reported during these past few days. The Israel Police has not ruled out arson as the cause of many of these fires. Fires have broken out from the north to the south in the last two days.

Not rules out arson?  ya think?.

The fires that have burned across Israel since Tuesday raged on Thursday with new areas threatened by flames as other blazes have come under control. Fifty percent of these fires were caused by repeated arson, Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan told Army Radio Thursday morning.

Also on Army Radio, Shimon Ben Ner, a senior Haifa firefighter, said “I know for a fact that they tried to set fire to the department’s station in Haifa deliberately to cause the Haifa fire department to be paralyzed.”

There have been a few arrests

.Israeli police have arrested four Palestinians in connection with one of several large fires that damaged homes and prompted the evacuation of thousands of people over the past few days.

Well this is horrible but it’s not as if arabs are celebrating this kind of thing, oh wait

As Aussie Dave puts it:

Of course, I am sure there are many Arabs worldwide not celebrating the fires and even sad about them, but they are not the ones trending this topic on Twitter.

Besides their hatred of us, what these celebratory tweets also show is how little they care for the Arabs and Muslims in Israel. After all, they are also well and truly in harms way.

Also, it just goes to show you how little they really care about this land.

Update: There is also a hashtag in English #Israelisburning. Same deal.

And anyone who, understand the reality in Israel. knows that this is coming here just as it’s come, on a smaller scale to France.

Two Closing thoughts:

It will be interesting to see if Twitter that was so ready to Ban Stacy McCain and Milo will be in any hurry to ban folks celebrating the burning of Israel in arabic or english.

I’m wondering what potential DNC chief Keith Ellison will say about this? I’m sure he’ll get around to banning it just before he signs onto the bill to stop the arab “Pay to slay” business (via elder of ziyon)
