A Planetary Pariah of Biblical Proportions

Bush the Most Hated Man in the History of the World? He is a Planetary Pariah of Biblical Proportions
By Rob Kall

The dictionary defines a pariah as an untouchable. To me, an untouchable by caste is a person who is unjustly treated as a person to be totally avoided and to be accorded contempt. The untouchables in India are born into their caste and it is not their fault.

George Bush has grown into untouchable Pariah-hood. He has taken on the mantle of a religious fraud, the rapist of a nation, the despoiler of nations, the waster of billions, nay hundreds of billions of dollars of resources and assets, the killer of tens of thousands. The destroyer of thousands of homes.

His fellow Christianists (if we call Muslims who are fundamentalist and unable to function cooperatively in the world, treating other faiths with respect Islamists, then lets call Christians who can't respect other faiths Christianists,) craving early death through the end-times when the anti-christ arrives, ushering in the return of the messiah, believe he is moving them towards their life-rejecting path. But it is just as arguable, perhaps even likely, if one chooses to dance with the "rapture" story, that the ultimate evil anti-christ would masquerade as the great leader who would take the faithful to their dreamed upon heavenly glory. The ultimate antichrist would seem to be the good guy.
So.... right now, about 50 million Americans think Bush is the good

guy. Maybe another 100 million Brits, Germans, Poles, Australians, Italians, Kurds, Iranians, Saudi princes and Japanese, hey, maybe even 500 million more have enough financial or political interests to also support Bush. I don't think most of those 500 see him as a good guy. They see him as a venal scoundrel who will sell out his country in ways that support their interests.
That leaves about 5.8 billion people on this planet. The world Muslim population is close to 1.5 billion. Assume 97% of them hate Bush. The sane citizens of the rest of the planet have to see Bush and his supporters as venal, dangerous predators and leeches, fanatic religious zealot fools or duped fools.
Even NY Times right wing pundit Thomas Friedman says, "I have never known a time in my life when America and its president were more hated around the world than today. I was just in Japan, and even young Japanese dislike us. It's no wonder that so many Americans are obsessed with the finale of the sitcom "Friends" right now. They're the only friends we have, and even they're leaving."

William Kristol on the receiving end of a PATRIOT's pie. Call it four and twenty blackbirds of freedom crying "TREASON".

...It is tragic that such a small majority of active American voters (Diebold?) have been able to create such a vile, reprehensible untouchable who most certainly is the most hated, most loathed man in the history of the world. I wonder how Hitler's supporters felt when he was the most hated man. Did they realize they were supporting a monster? Were they proud to be contributing to his power? What about after Hitler fell, or Mussolini, or Idi Amin? Did their supporters realize what they'd helped to create? Did they stay loyal to their monsters? Did they see the light and experience regret? George is not the first ugly, planetary monster to be created. We should learn from his and his predecessors. Like dinosaur researchers, paleontologists, who study dinosaur shit, we should be studying the destroyed industries, the fraudulently justified actions and causes, the ecological disasters and the lies built upon lies and more lies that enabled Bush and his malignant predecessors to attain power. That way, at least we can begin to understand what enables a tiny fraction of the people on this planet to insanely ejaculate such loathsome creatures into such positions of destructive power upon our planet.
