Eurovision Song Contest - End this Embarassment

Written by Birmingham UK Com

Continued from page 1

When a commentator such as Terry Wogan can practically predictrepparttar outcome ofrepparttar 139300 voting based on who are neighbouring countries torepparttar 139301 vote giver, you immediately know that something is wrong. Also, did anyone notice that Britain's entry was more Turkish in sound thanrepparttar 139302 Turkish entry?.

Russia, France, Greece, Hungary, Turkey andrepparttar 139303 UK all had quite reasonable and catchy songs with good presentation. However,repparttar 139304 voting of our new neighbours in Europe leaves a bad taste inrepparttar 139305 mouth. Almost to a man they voted with their neighbours in order to maximise their winning potential and score levels. The whole escapade was as embarassing as it was predictable.

No, I cannot and will not bring myself to watch another Eurovision Song Contest. Good though he may be, even Terry Wogan has overstayed his welcome. Its time we collectively snubbed this farce and moved on.

Dogged by political symbolism and ruined by vote rigging controversy, this is one awful singing tournament that has become a world embarassment. We should get out now and leave this camp, flamboyant, kiss my ass contest torepparttar 139306 East Europeans and Greek and Cyprus.

Ideological Imperialism

Written by Doug Bower

Continued from page 1

Let me tell you why this is a prime example of American Ideological Imperialism.

Jackson and his ilk have an ideology of what should and should not be said when referring to people ofrepparttar black color. Or, for that matter, what should be said, thought, or felt. He is here in Mexico, right now, "extending his rule over Mexico with his political orientation that advocates imperial interests".

Jackson's imperial interest: Forcerepparttar 138894 rest ofrepparttar 138895 world to adhere to his African-American Political Correctness. Do you see this? Are you getting what I am trying to say? Jackson, Sharpton, and their organizations are not alone.

American Ideological Imperialism applies torepparttar 138896 Jackson and Sharpton blacks,repparttar 138897 Gay Agenda Activists,repparttar 138898 Feminists,repparttar 138899 Abortionists, you name it—if there exists an American ideology about ANYTHING there will someone trying to force it downrepparttar 138900 throats ofrepparttar 138901 rest ofrepparttar 138902 world.

This is a major reason, I believe, whyrepparttar 138903 world hates America! Why can't America get that? America engages in Ideological Imperialism, they will not stop, andrepparttar 138904 rest ofrepparttar 138905 world recognizes this asrepparttar 138906 height of super-arrogance.

Americans apparently believe that their views, and no one else's, on issues of race, homosexuality, economics, terrorism, Mexican migrant workers, immigration, Homeland Security, feminism, and whatever else underrepparttar 138907 sun arerepparttar 138908 only right views!

"It's my way orrepparttar 138909 highway!"

And they seek to ram their ideology of human existence downrepparttar 138910 throats ofrepparttar 138911 world—a.k.a. Jesse and Al, in Mexico. God only know what they are saying!

Ideological Imperialism—memorize it!
