I just read a hate-laced email about Muslims, democrats and those disenfranchised by the current events in America and the world. I usually let such ignorant commentary pass, but I couldn’t let this one go.
I salute any citizen that questions this corrupt swamp that was once our government, but misguided messages are buying into the deception, fraud, corruption and hate spewed by that propaganda machine. Before we dive into the deep end of the pool, let’s get our facts straight because ignorance kills (not guns).
Our government has already been overthrown. It was an inside job completed on November 22, 1963. Eisenhower warned us about the threat of the military-industrial complex. He wasn’t talking about Muslims or illegal aliens.
Eisenhower was trying to warn us that a government that is so entrenched with corporate interests as to falsify wars and other current events to enrich banks and arms dealers can’t serve the interests of “we the people.” This pattern is fully exposed in a great book called the Shock Doctrine, by Naomi Klein. We now have crisis managers in government, not leaders. It’s called crisis capitalism. Government-driven crises now dominate the landscape and they are driving bad policy, stripping us of our rights and property, and bleeding us to death (and doing their best to instigate a civil war).
Our government has the destructive model down cold. Uncle Sam has been overthrowing healthy democracies around the world for profit for more than a century. It had nothing to do with the “spreading of democracy” or true capitalism. The weapon of choice has been economic warfare and bankruptcy. Our war to liberate Cuba in 1898 became a land grab that blew up in our face. We used the marines to steal Hawaii from an unarmed queen (for the benefit of the sugar companies). We couldn’t have won WWII without the Russians. But after the fall of Berlin, and then convincing the Russians to push the Japanese out of mainland Asia, we instantly declared war on them to justify the continued arms race. The Vietnam war would have ended in 1965 if Kennedy were not assassinated (an inside job for many motives). Bush Inc. said it best– “Mission Accomplished.” The list goes on and on. Watch a great series on Netflix called the Untold History of The United States by Oliver Stone. The best piece of modern history (since 1900) that I have seen. All backed up by detailed facts.
Unfortunately, the greatest threat to the survival of the U.S. constitution is bankruptcy. It’s not far away. While the public is being whipped into a frenzy about guns and Muslims, default will end the American dream without a shot being fired. We are funding this great nation three months at a time. Government shutdowns are threatened four times per year just to get the public conditioned to the dysfunction. Once we default on our debt payments to China, we get to start all over again with a new constitution that won’t include the first amendment or the second or the third…(do you speak Mandarin or Russian?) Trump has been selected by the machine to help guide us into financial default. (As a warm-up, he’s already taking aim at Social Security and he put a bankruptcy expert on his cabinet.)
Those who are tired of paying taxes to cover your Social Security, Medicare, VA benefits, regulations to protect your food and water (the neoconservatives are modern day fascists, masquerading as republicans and democrats), would love to pull off the greatest inside job of all time. Meanwhile, these same thieves have no problem taking taxpayer money. Do you know how much money the feds give to the oil industry each year for doing nothing, but taking our public lands and contaminating our air and water? Billions. Is that free-market capitalism?
They produce propaganda to divert attention to false threats, including phantom terrorists and religion. Every religion has its extreme and destructive factions. Remember the crusades when religion was used as a tool for conquest. Why hasn’t the world declared war on the Catholic church for lying, stealing, contributing to genocide and abusing children on a grand scale (and covering it up).
Did you know that Islam worships the same god that you do? Did you know that Islam believes in the old testament, including Mary, Jesus and Christmas? Why aren’t those with big mouths and narrow minds bashing the Jewish faith for not accepting the prophet Jesus? That’s devil-talk for most hard-line religious zealots.
If we keep buying lies issued by corrupt governments, we are nothing but stupid sheep who deserve what we get. Muslims aren’t the ones killing our war veterans by denying them access to medical care. Muslims aren’t the ones causing 20 of our war veterans to commit suicide every day. Muslims aren’t contaminating your food and water supplies in ways that are contributing to autism, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, cancer, endocrine disruption and much more. We have met the enemy. They’re thumbing their nose at us.
