LETTERS / Hating Victims And Loving Their Oppressors

Dear Editor,

“You’re not to be so blind with patriotism that you can’t face reality. Wrong is wrong, no matter who does it or says it”.  Malcolm X

Unless you pay close attention the prestitutes will have you hating the victims and loving their oppressors, as they successfully do now. In America we have our equality illusion. Those who believe that fantasy can be illustrated by the three monkeys; hear no evil, see no evil and speak no evil. The true believers bypass reality and live in an imaginary world. America can’t admit to its/their sins. To do so would require that they be responsible for their actions.

This country gave the Medal of Honor to several of the soldiers who massacred women and children at Wounded Knee, our last “Indian war”. Contrariwise, the officer who attempted to stop the My Lai massacre was labeled a traitor by congress. In this land only approved people and ideas are acceptable and nothing useful is allowed from “questionable” sources. Blasphemy in America is questioning the official story; independence isn’t tolerated.

Many are amazed that the true believers demand we accept their illusions, wondering how sexism, racism, militarism, corporatism, elitism, imperialism, and other hypocrisies are rampant here in the land of the “free”. Washington’s confrontational policies persist as do “our wars”. It’s much like the bad old days; change came but somehow didn’t.

America trades lives for pride, and conquest, lying for the benefit of a few; Pride so big those possessing it won’t budge and can’t imagine anything else when, for example, they speak of bringing democracy to others. Do you ask why we support dictators? Using international and American law, American actions abroad amount to international terrorism.

We have trial by “our free press” where the acceptable are unmolested while dissenters are attacked and convicted. If it’s not reported, it didn’t happen, and you never have to deal with the issues.  The Boston bombers were convicted by official press release via the propaganda parakeets, as were those accused in other such disasters. The American media, “prestitutes” are whores for Washington and the corporations. Reporting the real news is their last concern. The prestitutes are a Ministry of Propaganda and Cover-up.

Nixon was driven from office for lying about a burglary which he didn’t order. Clinton was impeached for lying about a sexual affair. Baby bush took America to wars based on obvious lies, and so has BroncoBama. America is guilty of war crimes, violating international law and ours. Yet, the prestitutes question and investigate nothing. Congress will never act responsibly; No 9/11 truth, it fails to oppose unaccountable power in the executive branch, the demise of the Bill of Rights, and not the endless wars against Muslims who didn’t attack America first.

The Third Reich attained power through the democratic process, and then declared a state of emergency. “This time it’s different” is just about never true. Defending yourself and your community is a duty, and sometimes offense really is the best defense but defense can grow into unceasing offense. Great Britain defended itself into a world empire, as have we 

“Consumers/cattle” didn’t care about the Patriot Act, Guantanamo Bay, waterboarding or drones strikes. Here’s a bold prediction: they won’t care about the NSA scandal either. The same mindless, all-American tubbies who bought duct tape after 9/11, believe Saddam was just like Hitler, and said it was better “to fight terrorists over there than over here” will decide for us. They do because they’re “mainstream”, and right now they’re saying: “If you haven’t done anything wrong, you don’t have anything to worry about.” Understand this clearly: these are the words of a predator speaking to his hostages.

If you tell the great unwashed about our war crimes you go to jail, but if you commit those crimes you get a medal. You might counter with “security” concerns, but remember we prosecuted Germans for not opposing their government’s crimes. The “elite” are angry that whistleblowers take their oath to protect and preserve the Constitution seriously enough to expose illegal and unconstitutional acts by “our government”. They’re embarrassed that they’ve been exposed as the liars that the public generally sees them to be. It’s disturbing to think that “our government” is focused on our activities, as though we’re the ones not be trusted. It’s up-side-down.

Police states operate this way. They tolerate no effective opposition. People wanting to live free, who say so, are considered enemies. Challenging government of, by and for privileged elites is criminalized. Governments subverting popular interests lack legitimacy. Expect much worse ahead.

When society is fashioned for the convenience of the police, it’s a police state, even before the brutality climbs. Remember, they can do anything to you in the name of “officer safety”.

Who needs death squads when you have secret dead-end courts? If a country isn’t a “daylight democracy” then it’s not a democracy, or even a constitutional republic. Who damages America more; those building a police state, or those who tell us its being done? There is no longer any limit to government power over our lives, No line beyond which it may not step, that it lies, spies and tyrannizes.

“The liberties of a people never were, nor ever will be, secure when the transactions of their rulers may be concealed from them”. Thomas Paine
