Open Letter To The All Blacks: AIG’s CEO Thinks He Is A Lynched Nigger Cause Of His BIG Bonuses. Where Is The Outrage!

The uproar over bonuses “was intended to stir public anger, to get everybody out there with their pitch forks and their hangman nooses, and all that — sort of like what we did in the Deep South [decades ago]. And I think it was just as bad and just as wrong.

Update: Here is what Max Keiser has to say about Bob Benmosche’s outrageous statement:

(Disclaimer: I do not describe people of color as Niggers. I used the word to express my outrage over this rich prick’s appropriation of the suffering caused by the lynchings based on racism in the deep south and want to ask what the all Black team is going to do about their Sponsor’s disgusting quote.)

In what should be a deal breaker for the All Black Rugby team sponsored by his company, AIG, Bob Benmoshe came out with what is arguably the most vile attempt of a 1%er to redirect criticism of the indecent bonuses they pay themselves for selling Joe Sixpack the crappy financial scam products.

Bob Benmoshe is the boss of AIG. AIG is a thoroughly discredited Corporation which had to be bailed out in the 2008 crisis because they were caught with their pants down in the Mortgage derivatives collapse aftermath. But even while the US citizens where looted in order to do so he and his bankster mates still received bonuses of many, many millions.

Bob Benmoshe this week equalled the public outrage over this with the hunting, torturing and lynching of black people in what can only be explained as the utterance of a thoroughly narcissistic man devoid of any insight of how the remaining 99% of the world has to live because of his and his bankster mates greed.

So my question is this:

The All Blacks proudly perform a Haka each game. This Haka has become Iconic for NZ pride and National identity. This Haka was composed by a Maori in a time racism (Not that I am saying it isn’t here now) and interracial wars were raging and  for many to see it being performed by the all blacks is a great source of National pride.

The All Blacks also were at the eye of the storm when popular protests erupted in 1981, with the Springbok team touring in NZ,  against Apartheid in Africa and was seen by many as a focus point in the international struggle against apartheid and a breaking point for the South African stance to continue their apartheids politics.

In light of this will they ignore their sponsors narcissistic, callous use of the suffering of thousands of blacks in the deep south of the USA or will they take responsibility and end their relationship with this discredit unethical corporation in order to maintain their integrity and patriotic duty to represent New Zealand and not their big sugar daddy.

If the All Blacks refuse to address their sponsor’s vile attempts to redirect the righteous anger of millions of Americans who are suffering because of the massive bailouts to AIG and other financial institutions I suggest Maori should re-appropriate the Haka and let the All Black be who they have chosen to be: A rich mans toy and money generator for more dishonest financial scams and products.

  1. And now you’re alleging that not only did he call himself a Nigger, he’s also called “every black person in the US a Nigger.”

    Classy, real classy.

    • Ah, the old let’s challenge the blogger tactic. Read my martyr page and suck it. It’s the spending to much time with a blog you have never been too drawing the author out into character assassination discussions defending something of no concern to the commentator while having no other presence online that always gives the game away!

      Tick, tick, tick… You ticked at least three of these:

      1. Thou shall not attack a person’s character but the argument itself. (“Ad hominem”)

      2. Thou shall not misrepresent or exaggerate a person’s argument in order to make it easier to attack. (“Straw Man Fallacy)

      3. Thou shall not use small numbers to represent the whole. (“Hasty Generalization”)

      4. Thou shall not argue thy position by assuming one of its premises is true. (“Begging the Question”)

      5. Thou shall not claim that because something occurred before, it must be the cause. (“Post Hoc/False Claim”)

      6. Thou shall not reduce the argument down to two possibilities. (“Fake Dichotomy”)

      7. Thou shall not argue that because of our ignorance that the claim must be true or false. (“Ad Ignorantiam”)

      8. Thou shall not lay the burden of proof onto him who is questioning the claim. (“Burden of Proof Reversal”)

      9. Thou shall not assume “this” follows “that” when “it” has no logical connection. (“Non Sequitor”)

      10. Thou shall not claim that because a premises is popular, therefore, it must be true. (“Bandwagon Fallacy”)

      And yes you have disappeared into my spam filter!

  2. I’m a little confused. I’ve read the interview and watched the video, but I didn’t see or hear Benmosche saying or using the N-word anywhere. To my knowledge and after some research he has never used it.

    Why did you use it, and put it in your headline? I read your disclaimer well below the headline and video, but I don’t know why you chose to use that particularly vile word.

    • miked999,

      A billionaire who pays himself millions and millions of dollars of bonuses while the rest of he country had to bail his ass out because his company has been speculating with money they didn’t have based on Mortgages that should not have been given to the people they gave them too compares himself to the poor blacks who were killed by white people who called those people niggers as a matter of course, might as well say the N-word while describing himself as being in a comparable situation.

      These sheer audacity of his statement should be a slap in the face of many black people. Especially since the whole financial aftermath was one of the biggest transfers of wealth once again from the black population to the Bob Benmosches of this world.

      The use of the N-word in and of itself is not the greatest insult. The statements of guys like Bob Benmoshe are. The thieving, lying scumbags who targeted the poorer Black and Hispanic communities with cheap starter mortgages only to turn up the interest and pushing all these people out of their homes is the big insult. He was in essence calling every black person in the US a Nigger when he used that comparison while knowing full well he has made a killing over the backs of the descendents of the people lynched in the southerns states.

      • I get that you don’t like this guy. I understand why. But to run a headline stating that he “..Thinks he is a Lynched Nigger..” when he has never said (and for all you and I know, thought) that sentiment is drawing a very long bow.

        It does you no credit, and you didn’t need to do it.
