The Fetch! Live from the Philippines! – 8.24.19
Inside the Eye – Live! broadcast out live from Laguna in the Philippines, a location that is literally “half way around the world” from the studio in Kentucky for the Saturday, August 24 show. Graham Hart made a short appearance in hour 2, cut short due to network problems. Fetch discussed some cultural insights on Filipino perceptions of Americans and how there is a distinct difference to Jewish “open border policies” that promote “inclusion” as opposed to the reality that in foreign nations, foreigners, including Americans, are not necessarily all that welcome in “the local neighborhood”.
I have been to the Philippines in the past, but admittedly, over a decade ago. At that point in time, it was an entirely different, traveling as I was as a telecommunications consultant and living in 5-star hotels. In such circumstances, you are not really a part of the local environment. But this trip was completely different. The whole intent is to relocate from Jordan to the Philippines, and that will require a whole new set of cultural understandings to be able to ebb and flow in the environment.
A rather interesting insight was learned when I was sat down with the family members on the compound and informed of the “scuttlebutt” surrounding my appearance within the “baranguy“. It seemed the locals were not taking too kindly to an American staying in the baranguy, with a primary question of, “Why is this American here? Why isn’t he staying at a hotel?”
Admittedly, the area is very poor and the living conditions less than ideal to Western standards. However, at a time when Americans and Brits are living on the streets while their respective governments coddle to immigrants of persuasions, the fact that these people were living on the land, OWNED the land, and had roofs over their heads seemed admirable enough to me.
After all, quality of life is not necessarily financially driven. The comfort of one’s existence is relative. But for these people, perhaps there was some perceived embarrassment or “shame” in how they were living and they did not necessarily want to have a outsider learning the real way of life within these baranguys.
Another interesting tidbit was the idea that, aside from the fact that Americans were necessarily welcome, that Americans were not really all that respected, either. Apparently, Americans are seen as being “irrationally generous”, giving their money away to local women and then finding themselves being thrown out on the streets when the money stops. More than a couple stories of wandering Americans were brought to my attention.
Third world Internet, a hot and humid tropical climate, all hinted that the Philippines was going to pose a unique challenge to the quality driven efforts behind Inside the Eye – Live!
Moving on to contemporary issues, the recent news that Alison Chabloz was banned from entering the EU – for 40 years!, highlights the encroaching vindictive and vicious absurdity of a society run by and for the benefit of Jews.
Imagine being denied access to nearly the entirety of the EU – because you sang a song that Jews didn’t approve of. It is mind boggling, really.
After Graham Hart’s attempted hour was cut short due to network issues, we went on into a discussion of how these attacks on individuals are really an assault on us all, and how attacks on individuals not only deserve, but should be met with spirited defenses that send (((leftist))) assaults into retreat.
The battle lines are rapidly being drawn.
