Emperor of Ethiopia. Bob Marley sang something about him. That's all my thoughts on him. Don't know about the Jersus thread but I'd suspect somebody pushed the button on him.

Yes, Haile Sellasie was the king of Ethiopia. He became a cult hero to rastafarians and others in Jamaica. IDK why he rose to such exalted status, but he did.

There is a funny story recounted by many. In a desire to connect with his sycophants in Jamaica, Selassie flew to Jamaica where he was greeted by about a gazillion crazed admirers. As the plane touched down at the airport, the Jamaican devotees bumrushed the airport to see their king!

Selassie, seeing so many people charging his plane, freaked out and ordered his pilot to hit full thrust and take off again. Yeah, he left his followers high and dry at the aiport!

Tell me about the buried thread.
Jersus was dismayed that the bars in his neighborhood did not open until 6pm on Christmas day. Some of my southern brothers invited him to move south. Someone else said they ordered Indian food. I asked if they ordered it hot or white guy hot. Someone wrote a post that was reminiscent of, and in the style of, Vinnie-- a THT legend who was perhaps the nicest guy to ever grace this corner of the internet. Vinnie's posts were also, uhm, cryptic.

Sorry, that's all I got. IDK why the thread disappeared, but I provided a start.

I have not seen him in quite some time. I have heard back channel rumors that he is active on another internet forum populated by many THT guys who were fed up with being sent to band camp too many times.

That's not quite the way it went, Selassie spent some time in Jamaica, I think part of the fascination with Selassie is, his roots traced back to Solomon.
Selassie I, Rastafari for I.

Black Uhuru did a great King Selassie song. I keep it in rotation on the boat playlist. Everything I know about King Salassie is from this song and that’s enough.

He was considered the second coming of Jesus because of a prophecy that the second coming would free his land of foreign occupiers. When Selassie gained independence for Egypt he was tagged the second coming. The funny part is he wanted nothing to do it.

Haile Sellasse was a badass.
Beat the crap out of Mussolini's black shirts before they came back en masse with bombers and gas,
He was the first of the notable WWII leaders to re-enter their capitals after helping the Brits defeat the 300000 strong eytie army occupying his country
Rastas worship him as he was a direct descendant of King Soloman.

Read the rules up top - We have a politics & religion forum. It is the Bilge. If you must talk politics on THT, use the Bilge. If you are not qualified to use the Bilge, you may not post politics on THT, period. Simple as that.

No religion up in here - Bilge only for religious discussions.
