“The Greatest” died last night and the news of his passing is shitting all over the internets.
Former world heavyweight champion Muhammad Ali, whose record-setting boxing career, flair for showmanship and political stands made him one of the best-known figures of the 20th century, died on Friday aged 74.
Ali, who had long suffered from Parkinson’s syndrome which impaired his speech and made the once-graceful athlete almost a prisoner in his own body, died a day after he was admitted to a Phoenix-area hospital with a respiratory ailment. -Reuters
As much as all the so called civil rights fear mongers and perpetual victimhood peddlers wand you to believe that Muhannad Ali is a hero of some sort, his past tells a very different story.
“Ali was the mouthpiece for a religious group that had the same beliefs as the white supremacist Klu Klux Klan.”
“Ali has been all but canonized these days, but Thrilla reminds us this plaster saint was once one of the most divisive men in America — and deservedly so.”
Ali’s famous conversion to the Nation of Islam led to his declaring himself a conscientious objector to the Vietnam War, and he began giving speeches agreeing with the KKK on interracial marriage. Ali famously made the Fight of the Century more than just a simple boxing match; he relentlessly condemned Frazier as an Uncle Tom, “the enemy,” and made audiences take sides based on racial politics.
Thanks to the media’s lapdog approach to Ali, the audiences picked their side for every reason except boxing: As narrator Liev Schreiber states: “If you were rooting for Muhammed Ali, you were black, liberal or young, against the Vietnam War and supported the civil rights movement. If you backed Joe Frazier you represented white, conservative America.” -Source
Ah, mainstream media hasn’t changed in all these years, has it? Emphasis mine. They are always on the prowl for their next Uncle Tom.
But then Ali himself liked to call one of his own people that too:
“What about when you’re fighting Joe Frazier,” the bemused reporter asks, “Is that fighting a holy war?”
“Yes, sir! Because he’s the Uncle Tom!” Ali shouts.
“Oh, he’s not an Uncle Tom,” the reporter chides, vainly trying to introduce reason to the discussion.
Ali will have none of it. “He’s the other type Negro, he’s not like me,” Ali shouts to the now stunned white interviewer. “There are two types of slaves, Joe Frazier’s worse than you to me. … That’s what I mean when I say Uncle Tom, I mean he’s a brother, one day he might be like me, but for now he works for the enemy”
But as one of Frazier’s camp, Dave Wolfe, points out, “Joe was the working-class black person Ali claimed to be speaking for, Ali never worked a day in his life except at being himself.”
It was Frazier who lived and trained (and still does) in the neighborhood called “The Badlands” in Philadelphia. It was Frazier who grew up tilling the fields in a segregated South Carolina county where the local bank would later not even cash a small check for him when he returned home as the heavyweight champion of the world.
All of this was known to the media, but the reporters nevertheless played along, eager to get the next Big Quote from Ali. -Source
That’s right, reporters were sucking black cock back then, and they’re still doing it now. Something about this brings the term “Dangerous Faggot” to mind.
Here is the documentary talked about in the source link above.
And here’s this little jewel of an article:
When he passes from this mortal coil, the hagiographic writers will elect him immediately into the pantheon of Great Athletes Who Qualify For Sainthood, and it will be déclassé to speak any ill of the late departed. So, while he’s still alive, we can tell the truth about him: Not everyone in Louisville thinks he’s so great.
How prophetic. It’s only a matter of time before Ali ascends to sainthood. They go on:
Not all biographic treatments of Cassius Clay ignore the ugly and sordid aspects of his life. Purdue PhD Jack Cashill—widely respected for his PBS documentaries—wrote a starkly revealing portrait of Clay in his 2006 best-seller, Sucker Punch: The Hard Left Hook That Dazed Ali and Killed King’s Dream.
Dr. Cashill reminds readers that Clay was an unapologetic sexist and unabashed racist, who called for the lynching of interracial couples and an American apartheid as late as 1975. Using mostly primary sources, the author gives examples of how Clay routinely denigrated black heroes who did not share his point of view, including Joe Louis, Jackie Robinson, Thurgood Marshall, and especially Joe Frazier. And he shows how Clay shamelessly courted some of the most brutal dictators on the planet: Qadaffi, Idi Amin, Papa Doc Duvalier, Nkrumah, Mobutu, and Ferdinand Marcos.
Despite his middle-class upbringing in Louisville, he turned his back on the city of his birth (“…so-called Negro people in Louisville are treated like dogs and denied simple human rights.”) and joined a racist cult; the Black Muslims who believed white people were made in a test tube by an evil doctor named Yacub who successfully bred light skinned blacks together until he created a mutant race of blonde-haired, blue-eyed beings.
That last paragraph gave me a serious case of the lulz.
It’s hard to find much virtue in a man who refused to defend his country during the Vietnam War, cheated on every one of his wives, and fathered several illegitimate children. Despite the fact that his family proudly traced their lineage to Kentucky’s famous Henry Clay, “Muhammad Ali” falsely claimed that any white blood he had in him was the result of “raping.” This makes for a good story, but ignores the fact that Clay’s great grandfather was a white man married to Cassius’ black grandmother well after slave holding days. -Source
Well isn’t that something? Ali has got some white in him after his great grandfather put some white in his black great grandmother. Emphasis mine.
7. Ali has Irish roots.
Perhaps not surprising given Ali’s gift of gab, but his great-grandfather Abe Grady was an Irishman who emigrated to the United States and settled in Kentucky in the 1860s. There he married a freed slave, and one of their grandchildren was Ali’s mother, Odessa Lee Grady Clay. In 2009, Ali visited his great-grandfather’s ancestral hometown of Ennis, Ireland, and met fellow members of the O’Grady clan. -History.com
It’s been well written about that Muhammad Ali hated white people. He couldn’t come to terms that he was part white himself. He fancied himself a “pretty” man. I think we all know where he got his “pretty” from, and it ain’t his ex slave grandmothers.
In addition to him being a draft dodger, and cheating on “every one of his wives” as many if not most black men do, he allowed his son to live in poverty.
During his glittering career, Ali made and lost several fortunes. In 2006, however, he sold his image rights to CKX (now Core Media Group), which also controls the rights to Elvis Presley’s image. The deal, which covers licensing rights and trademarks, was worth at least £30 million — more than enough to keep Ali and his wife in comfort for the rest of their lives.
Why, then, must Muhammad Ali Junior, 40, his wife Shaakira and their daughters, aged five and four, languish in a charity-furnished garret owned by his in-laws, scraping by on food-stamps worth £135 a month, plus the few dollars he earns selling autographed photos and doing odd-jobs?
It is a question that puzzles many people in Englewood, where he has lived for more than a decade and where his identity is well-known. -Source
I think the following passages sum up “The Greatest” in the most honest examination of his past:
A list of Clay’s virtues is a short one. He was an accomplished athlete, rather handsome, and made millions by periodically beating the crap out of fellow pugilists in America’s only remaining blood sport.
A list of his vices would take more space than is herewith available. He’s uneducated and not very bright. He flunked his first Armed Forces Qualification Test, and only later passed it when the manpower demands of the Viet Nam war forced the AFQT to lower its cutoff to IQ 75. He never wrote anything of note (The phony “Wit and Wisdom of Muhammad Ali” is predominantly quotations and doggerel poetry written by his handlers), and has never been quoted as making an intelligent remark on any subject other than prizefighting.
A milti-millionaire, Clay is not on record as having made any substantial monetary contribution to any charity; and receives compensation for most of his “appearances” at charitable functions. Interviewers are careful never to ask him his opinions on such topics as homosexuality, inter-racial marriage, Christians, Jews, or the status and treatment of women.
In reality, he is nothing more than a blank screen; moved around from place to place by rich white people, who project their views and beliefs upon his once-attractive surface. He’s said to be a big supporter of fairness, brotherhood, economic justice, peace, environmentalism, and every other liberal dogma from regular flossing to periodic tire rotation. In reality, Clay is clueless; his mind having tragically left his body years ago. -Source
As stated in the quoted paragraph above, there is not enough room to tell all the truths about this man, who at the end of the day was not a “King”, was not “The Greatest” man alive (although a great prize fighter and tool of the left); he was instead just man who’s final fall to the mat occurred far too late.
