They Call Him Hitler, But Is He Really Ghandi? Why Doesn't Corporate Media Want You To Hear Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad?



"The United States is a big and important country with a population of 300 million. Due to certain issues, the American people in the past years have been denied correct and clear information about global developments and are eager to hear different opinions," Mr Ahmadinejad

SCOTT PELLEY of CBS News: But the American people, sir, believe that your country is a terrorist nation, exporting terrorism in the world. You must have known that visiting the World Trade Center site would infuriate many Americans, as if to be mocking the American people.

AHMADINEJAD: Well, I'm amazed. How can you speak for the whole of the American nation?

PELLEY: Well, the American nation . . .

AHMADINEJAD: . . . you are representing a media and you're a reporter. The American nation is made up of 300 million people. There are different points of view over there. I would like to think that the points of view of the American people is very close to the points of view of the Iranian people. The American people are very much against and opposed what certain American officials are saying and their points of view. And they're also, the way that the people have voted in the American elections is very telling. And we are criticizing such behavior on the part of the American government. We believe that if anyone just allows himself to accuse others, there will be no possibility for peace and friendship.

This Iranian dude is SMART.
He is up there with Putin.

When this guy opens his mouth and presents a fact, all the hemming and hawing about this and that come to an end, so many of those reporters, including another shill by the name of Mike Wallace, get put in their place.

What place is that ?

Mostly the brainwashed retard place where people inculcated with false information dwell.

Although this Ahmadinejad has a god awful name to pronounce, and also is kind of a religious crank also, he, like Putin are damned intelligent, and really fun to listen to.
This guy cuts through a lot of bullshit. Thats why they would like to kill his ass.

Ghandi was a racist who hated black people. If you don't believe me as the Tamil panthers/untouchable why they hate Ghandi?

Skip said, "Although this Ahmadinejad has a god awful name to pronounce..." He should change to Skip Sievert that would be better, right?

Yeah?

Well ... Mike ... when Ghandi wasn't "hating black people" he had some interesting things to say:

"A coward is incapable of exhibiting love; it is the prerogative of the brave."

and

"A man is but the product of his thoughts what he thinks, he becomes."

Ghandi was a man, just like you. flaws and all.

but to suggest that we throw the baby out with the bath water is silly at best, completely dangerously self-defeating at worst.

That you would choose to attack such a cleary impactful life from this narrow, pointed angle exposes your inability to forgive your own flaws and shortcomings.

And lays bare your open wounds.

you should get that looked at.

Ghandi was a racist who hated black people???? Which caveman rock did you dig this info from? Utter nonsense.

Why the hate for the Iranian prez? what exactly has he done to America? Or is America now and extension of Israel?

CNN is on full-blown propaganda mode right now.

They need to give Ahmadinejad the Nobel.

Not Mike but Soulijah Story! Sorry for the anonymous post it won't happen again.

I chose to point out the fact that Ghandi was a racism and hated Black people because it is true.

That does not mean that he do not have interesting things to say. I just wanted to shed some light on the a fact that many are unfamiliar with regarding Ghandi.

--In 1906 Gandhi had participated in a war against Blacks. The Gandhian literature either keeps quiet on the subject or tries to paint him as a great humanitarian who actually helped Blacks by rendering to them urgent medical care. Had he not done so, we are told, many Blacks would have died. While researching the historical documents, however, I found that Gandhi’s participation had nothing to do with “humanitarian concerns” for Black people. He was more concerned with “allying relationships” with the colonial Whites living in Natal colony. Driven by his racial outlook, he went out of his way to enlist Indians to join the army under him to fight for his cause against the Blacks. He also considered Indians living in South Africa to be “fellow colonists” along with the White colonists, over the indigenous Blacks.

We should take nothing at face value! That's all I am suggesting love him or hate him, just know him before an opinion is formed.

Be Well,

These are not my words. This is information that I researched to provide supportive information about Ghandi's past.

but the question at this point is, does it matter what our opinion of him is? If we are debating how we feel about a dead man aren't we missing the real opportunity to gleam from his life the jewels he left behind? why go back and scoop up shit when there are genuine pearls to be collected.

was he not a man?

Denmark Vesey said...

I agree Jasai. I find the suggestion that Ghandi "didn't like blacks" as absurd as the suggestion Ghandi didn't like blondes.

The man lived to be damn near 80 years old. Not that it matters in the least, but how could anyone know how a man felt about anything over that period of time?

The need to see everything in terms as simple as black and white, with black on the bottom is the epitome of mental slavery.

If it is mental slavery to focus on the truth. Then I will accept your definition of "mental slavery" and run with it.

As I mentioned in an earlier post not everyone it familiar with
the truth about Ghandi. Thus, when it is mentioned that he hated Black people those who are not familiar with this truth, are in disbelief that anyone can say such a thing about Ghandi.

As a Black men who loves Black people, I refuse to pretend that the truth is a lie.

As I mention before ask the Tamil Panthers why they hate Ghandi.

I believe in forgiveness and feel that all human beings should be jugded by their deeds/actions.

But in order to have forgiveness their must be repentence. If one do not believe that his/her action are wrong that how can that be forgiveness?

"The truth shall set you free"

Brother Soulijah,

I think you are misunderstanding my contempt for the suggestion that Ghandi "didn't like black people".

I do not think it is a lie.

I don't doubt you read something or the other that suggests it.

Hell, I am sure if one reads long enough he could find something that suggests "Malcolm X didn't like black people".

I simply assert 1) How could anyone know that 2) What's there to hate about black people? 3) Hating an entire race of people because of the hue of their skin is the province of mental midgets.

Tamil Tigers or not - you are not suggesting brother Ghandi was a mental midget are you?

Of course not.

So, let's not get bogged down in ridiculous speculations about the affinity for black people of a man dead for decades.
