They’re “African,” We’re American: Obnoxious Celeb Ad Campaign of the Week

Annoying Hollywood is at it again. Several leftist celebs (is there any other kind?) donned war paint and war beads in an “I Am African” campaign about AIDS in Africa. It reminds us of last year’s fizzled “I have AIDS” campaign featuring several of the same bloated-ego celebs (like Palestinian Gigolo Richard Gere). Yet another empty self-absorbed incarnation of “We Are the World,” “Hands Across America,” etc., etc., etc., ad nauseam.
We wouldn’t buy a pic of the desperate-for-attention Sarah Jessica Parker without war paint and beads. Why would anyone buy one with those ethnic-pandering “adornments”?

Even the New York Times attacked this silly Keep a Child Alive campaign. Everything about the campaign is obnoxious, including the fact that these wealthy phonies are giving little to none of their own money, but asking the rest of the world to donate money in response to their silly make-up.
Where is their American warpaint and campaign for charities benefitting American troops or poor Americans? Nowhere to be found. When it comes to giving charity in America, most are also similarly absent. But they’re everywhere, when it comes to campaigning against tax cuts or for Al Gore & John Kerry, as Gere, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Gwyneth Paltrow all did. We wonder–when all is said and done–how much of the money will actually go to African kids with AIDS. Precious little, we bet.
They may be “African” today (and Samoan or Fijian, tomorrow). But we’re American. Maybe someday, they’ll remember that they are, too.

“We wonder–when all is said and done–how much of the money will actually go to African kids with AIDS. Precious little, we bet.”
Precious little is right! There have been numerous reports that the money donated for AIDS in Africa has turned into a gigantic scam. It has been reported that the overwhelming majority of the money donated goes directly into the pockets of government officials. And that it has gotten so bad that various other diseases are actually being claimed as AIDS in order to fetch even more money. The stories on this should be very easy to find on the web.
My heart bleeds for children with any kind of deadly disease or suffering but I won’t line the pockets of corrupt govt. officials.

Right on, Beautiful Sista!

Those celebs are high-paid, above-the-fray counterparts to the women who stumbled into this cult.

(ahem) this cult:

A bizarre belief among many African black men that sex with a virgin — even a child or baby — can cure HIV/AIDS is fueling what is already one of the highest child sexual exploitation rates in the world.
According to the latest report by South Africa’s Police Service, children are the victims of 41 percent of all rapes and attempted rapes reported in the country. Over 15 percent of all reported rapes are against children under 11, and another 26 percent against children 12-17. For the year 2000, some 58 children were raped or the victims of rape attempts in South Africa every single day.
The trend is worsening. Babies as young as only a few months old are being raped almost daily. Many black South African men infected with AIDS erroneously believe that by having sex with a virgin — even a baby — they will be cured of AIDS or their HIV infection.
Read the rest of this article at:
Let’s face it; The corrupt governments/dictators of many Africa nations are pocketing the money meant to educate and treat AIDS patients. They are purposely keeping this epidemic growing like wildfire.
The western media is guilty by associating for not exposing this fraud.

Thee_Bruno, we seem to think so much alike it’s beginning to scare me.
Most people are not aware that there is one place on earth where RAPE INSURANCE is routinely sold and purchased. Guess where that might be? Yep, South Africa. Another thing most people don’t know about South Africa is that news broadcasts are routinely filtered by the government before release is allowed. The government does its best to keep the rest of the world from knowing what is going on there and it isn’t pretty.
I know several people who have fled South Africa because the crime has become so hideously awful and the government so corrupt. For anyone who adheres to the belief that all people and cultures are essentially the same, as is so commonly taught in the halls of academia, one need only visit the continent of Africa. Or China for that matter.
The women pictured above remind me of the one’s in Jerimiah’s cult story. Trust me, their not African.

No, the women pictured above are spoiled Western women who don’t have a clue what their lives would be like if they had to actually live as most women in non-Western cultures do. Say, in some Muslim countries for example. And in parts of the Orient.
They seem to completely take for granted the freedoms and civility that their own Western culture provides for them. It’s like someone being rich their entire lives and not knowing what it is like to need anything. They have very little solidarity with their own people and culture because they really don’t know anything else. They have the “luxury” of doing that whereas most all other non-Western women don’t. While I understand their motivations may be for a good cause I also agree with Debbie in pointing out their hypocrisy. They seem to be doing it to make themselves feel good more than anything else.
Which brings to mind my love/hate relationship with Tammy Bruce. Tammy has a brilliant mind and I love her reasoning abilities on most topics until she goes into that certain rant about men. And not just any men, it’s Western men. You know, men like her father, grandfather, cousins — all her male relatives for thousands of years I presume. When she gets mad at men she invariably says those “pasty white males.”
As if she is not a part of them! Like they are some alien creatures she has no cultural or genetic ties with at all! And I’ve heard other Western women (RadFems) do the same thing. For a Western woman to condemn all Western men as if she doesn’t have anything remotely in common with them is the very height of hypocritical ignorance. And I’m not just talking about her being angry at some of the ways men act sometimes, which is understandable, but rather it’s actually a racial condemnation of them. I guess you would just have to hear her on the radio to know what I mean. But it is very distinct when she does it.
I love your show Tammy, but puhleeese. I’m sure those who hate Westerners, like the mad man from Iran, for example, love it when you do that.

who cares sara jessica parker best movie was footloose that was 20 years ago and her sex in the city show she was the only one that was never nude why is that we got stuck looking at kim cadrell isnt she about 60

I share your love/hate relationship with Tammy Bruce (however, she’s one good-looking lipstick lesbian).
Now, as South Africa goes…all of the whites fled that country after apartheid was repealed. Whites, after apartheid, were persecuted, just as in so many other African shitholes – Robert Mugabee, anyone?. However, are even the black South Africans better off since “whitey” was thrown from controlling that simmering cesspool? Hell no! The blacks were certainly better-off with apartheid (if anyone wants me to prove my point – please, you LIBERALS, just ask me).
It just became another primitive African basketcase, like so many other African countries that declared the white man evil. Now, all of these “wonderful”, “celebrated”, much to be “emulated” African countries have DEVOLVED into machete-weilding, home-grown barbarism, AND totalitarian-imposed Islamicism.
Africa surely IS the Dark Continent – in more ways than one! Yet, EVERY SINGLE AFRICAN COUNTRY BEGS FOR DOLLARS FROM THE WHITE MAN!
I say, let them reap what they sow!
Let them simmer and perish in their own self-inflicted diseases. After all, what civilized society allows its people to rape infants?!!!!

There is something about Sarah Jessica Parker that makes me sick.

Ripper on September 6, 2006 at 9:49 am

Surely the headline should be…
or in Sarah Jessica Parker’s case

Jack Bauer on September 6, 2006 at 1:51 pm

They’re has-been. I wouldn’t fuck them with my dog’s dick.
