AntiUS International

What the fuck is the problem with Amnesty International. I'm getting really fucking tired of them accusing us of being the downfall of human rights in the world. Where the fuck were they when Saddam was gassing innocents. Why aren't they fucking orgasming over Africa. I mean, really, leopards have more fucking rights and protection in Africa than humans do. To compare the US to Niger or Communist Russia is fucking ricockulous.

When was the last time you feared for your life in the US. When was the last time you were worried you wouldn't have running water. When was the last time you were afraid to vote. I'm not saying afraid because both canidates suck, I'm saying, afraid because you'll die. Amnesty International President Schulz needs to go live in Africa or Iran, or Taliban run Afganistan or somewhere where there are real violations.

I'm not saying that it doesn't happen occasionally in the US, but it is not a rampant problem eating away at the core of the Earth. The US isn't devaluing human rights and attempting to overthrow any type of international system [no international system of anything will ever work fuckers]. I'm not knocking Amnesty International's job as a watchdog for human rights. Just pull Michael Moore's dick out of your mouth and Ted Kennedy's dick out of your ass and try doing your job rather than trying to overthrow a conservative US government and instilling a socialist democratic network like Europes panzy asses. Oh, and by the way, way to go Europe on fucking over the EU. I actually liked that.

That is all. [Wow, that was kind of hostile]

This is going to be interesting...

They were where they've always been, and still are, telling people that the place has issues that need to be addressed. They were ignored by a lot of Americans because their heads were pretty far up their asses stressing over the trivial shit they tend to stress over, such as who is gonna make it in Survivor or Janet Jackson's tit.

They are, in fact, STILL in the same places in Iraq and pointing out that the shit still gets ugly. That it gets ugly under the eye of the world's most powerful country, who espouses the highest ideals of human freedom and enshrines human dignity as one of its foundations for its prosperity is dissapointing.

If you can't count on the USA to try and do the right thing all the time, then who can you count on? Deep down, everyone knows the US has to be the foundation on which you make the world a better place. They're just making sure that foundation is flawless, and they're pretty brave to do it.

Simply, just because other places are worse doesn't mean we should get away with lesser violations, if indeed they're lesser. The problem with secret prisons is that you can never know how bad it really is. That the US government condones it and has a system set up for these crimes is very worrisome.

Am I scared? A little. I haven't done anything wrong, but that doesn't necessarily mean anything anymore, does it? That small doubt, which is bigger for others, is what Amnesty as an organization addresses, and what they see the US doing abroad: the wide-scale suspension of due process rights, which then lead to more atrocious human rights abuses.

Sidenote: The EU constitution was rejected for many reasons, one of them being that many French voters thought it would impose anglo-saxon capitalism on the continent and dismantle their socialist network.

This goes to show that they, like you, had little clue as to what the fuck was going on with that thing. It also means that when a constitution is accepted (and one will be, eventually), that it'll likely affirm their socialist stances more than the current one. Pinko-scum wins, Jack!

Ricockulous? Now that's new.

Jack wrote "fuck" or a word derived from "fuck" at least 8 times in this post. Congratulations.

"If you can't count on the USA to try and do the right thing all the time, then who can you count on? Deep down, everyone knows the US has to be the foundation on which you make the world a better place. They're just making sure that foundation is flawless, and they're pretty brave to do it."

I don't know. This paragraph leaves heavily toward advocating the holding of double standards, at least in my interpretation of it. Perhaps it's just that it's easier to lob accusations in this nation due to what still are generous levels of free speech.

I wouldn't say it holds a double-standard. Amnesty and other organizations have nitpicked at problems in the US before, including its allowing of the death-penalty and some abuse in women's prisons. They do this in various other Western States, too.

I believe the big deal this time around is because this is the first time they (rightly) accuse our executive branch of perpetrating major abuses.

As for my personal take on it, I meant to imply that the same standards apply everywhere, you just want to make sure the USA adhered to them first. More of a matter of priority than a matter of different standards.

Gotcha. I doubt either of us really want to write a 7 page essay on how exactly we stand in order to make a statement that can't be misconstrued by the read. Oh God, I'm kind of wasted.
