Retired NFL Player Marcellus Wiley Exposes Black Lives Matter’s Hate Toward the Traditional Family

Former NFL player Marcellus Wiley reads the Black Lives Matter mission statement, that includes “We dismantle the patriarchal practice,” and disrupt the traditional nuclear family. And he goes into what happens when little kids don’t have a father raising them with the mother.

By the way, regarding children growing up in one-parent households, i.e. mostly with the mother as the one parent, Wendy McElroy recently wrote an article on abusive relationships and domestic violence. It was not particularly in reference to single-parent homes, but she did mention that “a 2006 report from the Department of Health and Human Services found that 70.6% of abused children were brutalized by mothers, and 29.4% by fathers.” So in my view that at least implies that given those high numbers, a child in a mother-only home may be more likely the victim of abuse. That’s just my own interpretation from that, and I could be wrong. (In those 70.6% of abused children abused by mothers, perhaps the abusive mothers were themselves abused by their mothers? Or by their father or their mother’s boyfriend?) And could the problem of abuse in a single-parent home be a contributing factor to the high violent crime rates in the cities, and why we see so much violence being committed by “Black Lives Matter” at the “protests” in the cities, i.e. riots, occupations, destroying businesses and looting?

How Ignorant Are the Rioters, Statue-Topplers, and Race-Based Censors?

Charles Burris with a post on marauders and vandals going after the Tadeusz Kościuszko monument in Washington DC. He quotes the article he links to about Tadeusz Kościuszko:

Kościuszko also fought for the rights of national and racial minorities. In his will, he donated a portion of his estate to free black slaves belonging to Thomas Jefferson, one of the founding fathers of the United States. However, Jefferson did not fulfil Kościuszko’s testament.

Kościuszko also bequeathed sums for the education of freed Afro-American slaves to enable them to function normally in society. According to many historians, he was ahead of his time with this will.

And supposedly “Uncle Ben’s” rice will change its name and logo, because of “racial stereotypes,” even though the guy “Uncle Ben” was a prominent black farmer in Texas, not a manual laborer but the owner of his business selling great rice to millers. The makers of “Uncle Ben’s” are caving to ignorance and irrationality by changing the product’s name for no good reason.

So much for education in Amerika.

Turley on the Mob Cultural Revolution Hysteria

Law professor Jonathan Turley has a terrific article on the cultural revolution taking place right now, with brainwashed activists tearing down statues and defacing historical artifacts and getting college professors fired for saying something that their apparent betters of the millennial generation disapprove of, as well as getting people in business fired, and bloggers and website owners “deplatformed.” it is a revolution of hysteria, intolerance and criminal harassment of innocent people. (I’m not familiar with “Gab,” an apparent new alternative for Twitter and Fakebook, but I hope Gab’s CEO Andrew Torba is able to sue Visa for what that company is doing, if true.)

Current Civil War-Era Hysteria Reminds Me of Interview of Tom Woods by a Zombie

With all the hysteria now over historic artifacts such as from the Confederacy or statues or military bases named after “Confederate generals,” I was reminded of Tom Woods’s “Interview with a Zombie,” in which the “Zombie” represents the typical brainwashed “Social Justice Warrior” who has been told without any evidence that “America is a racist country,” that keeping historic artifacts or statues in place is “racist,” and especially that advocating “Nullification” (The title of Tom Woods’s book that was published at that time) is “racist.” This Interview with a Zombie was 10 years ago this month, apparently, and as we see today nothing has changed. The Zombie could very well be anyone from CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times, the Washington Post, etc. So, I thought I would repost this video now.

My Earlier 2012 Article Covering “Civil Unrest” Events Similar to Now

Because of the recent events, the race stuff and rioting and the economic collapse, I was reminded of an article I wrote that was on LewRockwell.com in 2012, asking, Civil Unrest: Do Our Rulers Actually Want It To Happen? So I wanted to repost that here now because of some similarities from that period to what is going on now. There are maybe a few little things in there that I might not write now, but most of it is relevant, I believe. Any links that weren’t working I either replaced with Wayback Machine version, a different but similar page, or removed completely.

Civil Unrest: Do Our Rulers Actually Want It To Happen?

September 18, 2012

Copyright © 2012 by LewRockwell.com. (Link to article)

There have been several different predictions and scenarios involving how inflation and austerity measures in the U.S. could bring about food shortages and other shortages, food riots, looting, violent protests, flash mobs, and martial law.

All these things can be prevented, of course, if more people could wake up to the fact that government central planning in money and economic matters is inherently flawed and doomed to failure, societal self-destruction and collapse.

Some people see the recent German court decision to approve German bailouts of irresponsible European governments as a new dictatorship for Germany and a boon for investors. And there are others who see this new scheme as the beginning of runaway hyperinflation in Europe that will spread to the U.S.

Following this decision by the high German court, the U.S. Federal Reserve has announced a new round of quantitative easing (QE3). Some people believe that QE3 will cause more economic instability, and further destruction of the dollar.

Eventually the austerity measures we have been seeing in Europe will reach the U.S.

Austerity measures will hit public employee benefits and pensions, and welfare and Medicare recipients (but not the bloated salaries, benefits and pensions of Congressmen and their beloved bureaucrats).

But it seems that the U.S. government has been pushing hard to get as many people dependent on government as possible. Food stamps spending has more than doubled since Barack Obama became President, although the number of Americans on food stamps almost doubled from 2001 to 2009 during the presidency of George W. Bush as well.

And the Obama Administration has gone so far as to push U.S. food stamps onto Mexicans! (And Mexicans can’t even vote for Obama this November – theoretically, that is.)

Also distressing is how private corporations profit from the government’s exploiting the population’s vulnerabilities that the government’s own interventions cause. One example is JP Morgan Chase’s shamefully profiting from the food stamps program.

Incidentally, employees of JP Morgan Chase donated over $800,000 to Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign and, so far over $155,000 to Obama’s 2012 effort. (There certainly has been no quid pro quo here, as former President George Bush the Elder might say.)

Now, regarding eventual shortages, austerity and civil unrest in America that would involve the unavailability of Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) payments, in large part affecting food stamp recipients, one scenario I’ve seen details how rioting and turmoil could unfold, mainly beginning in the cities, but eventually flowing out into the suburbs. It is not a pretty picture.

One would think that the government bureaucrats who control these social programs could see ahead what would happen when withholding such benefits, especially with millions of people dependent on them for their daily sustenance. So, in the case of possible future EBT cards not functioning followed by rioting and violence, one has to wonder whether such an action by the government could be purposeful.

In the aforementioned scenario, the writer emphasizes urban minorities as the ones mainly perpetrating the flash mob rioting and violence. But, in 2010 34% of food stamp recipients were white, 22% black and 29% Hispanic, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

However, the flash mobs committing acts of violence in the cities in recent years do not seem to be associated with government austerity measures, food stamps, hunger, etc. In some instances, such violence has been racially motivated, black against white, as witnessed in this account, for example. Unfortunately, the mention of such a modern social phenomenon in the U.S. is politically incorrect, as many newscasters and newspapers reporting on those events censor the race of the perpetrators and that of victims, as author Thomas Sowell has noted. Race demagogues such as the Rev. Jesse Jackson and the Rev. Al Shrapnel have gained much fame and popularity from such “race-hustling.”

So are the Chicago-Washington community organizers and agitators trying to promote race riots? Obama and his “social justice” cohorts do not seem to have any comments on the violence committed by inner-city punks. The Holder Justice Department has refused to prosecute black against white voter intimidation cases. And Obama wants public schools to stop disciplining misbehaving black students. Hmmm.

And why have U.S. military recruiters allowed so many white supremacists to join the military?

It appears that the efforts of the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., the 1964 Civil Rights Act, and now the election of Barack Obama as President do not seem to have healed the friction among the races in America.

So there seem to be extremists on both sides, and the rest of us are caught in the middle.

But when there will be government austerity and EBT card non-functionality, the flash mob violence we have seen recently will probably be much worse, regardless of race or ethnicity.

But, racial conflicts aside, why have the Bush and Obama Administrations increased spending on food stamps so much? Social programs such as food stamps rob people of their incentive to provide for themselves, and they become serfs to bureaucrats.

It is as though these imbecilic bureaucrats are encouraging the masses to get dependent on these bureaucrats, and for devious purposes.

No, they wouldn’t do that. Not that there hasn’t been enough information about Obama and his immoral, unconstitutional acts as President to indicate any sort of deviousness, no.

With the moral hazard of government bureaucrats’ luring people into this kind of dependence and serfdom, QE3 will cause further economic instability, part of the inherent moral hazard of having a central bank and lack of freedom and competition in money and banking. Such Fed policies continually rob the people through inflation, particularly the lower and middle classes.

Added to those moral hazards of these professional bureaucrats are Congress’s raising the debt ceiling, Washington’s lack of prosecuting criminally irresponsible banksters, the 2008 extortion-like bankster bailout, and foreclosure fraudsters.

And Obama’s pushing through Congress the bill allowing for indefinite detention of Americans without charge or evidence, and his signing it into law, followed by his appealing the judge’s striking it down – there probably isn’t any deviousness behind that, and probably won’t be any targeting of political dissenters during future civil conflicts in America, no. (There certainly hasn’t been any of that, not in America, no.)

All these acts of government criminality could be leading America into a total breakdown of society.

So these people in Washington are either extremely clueless and don’t know what they’re doing, or they are doing these things intentionally, in which case they are just plain evil.

So, could the ruling elites be purposefully trying to cause so much massive dependence on government and such massive weakening of the financial and monetary systems, followed by a false-flag type economic collapse and sudden withholding of government benefits and unavailability of our own money in the bank, to intentionally bring about rioting and violence?

And, if Romney is elected in November, would he be any different from Obama?

And so, if these scenarios play out, and there is indeed massive civil unrest in America, we already know that various federal agencies and local and state police as well are preparing for it. The police state that J. Edgar Hoover, Oliver North, and Dick Cheney put in place is being fully embraced by Obama, the Department of Homeland Security, the TSA, FBI and CIA, as well as many local police neanderthals all across America – it is as though they are drooling for some action, and for a chance for them to show the rest of the world just how tough they are.

Can you imagine people with the kind of extremely questionable character and level of dishonesty and untrustworthiness as Obama and Romney presiding over a situation of military martial law?

In addition to all this, the Obama Administration has allowed foreign troops onto U.S. soil. NATO troops were in training in Tampa just prior to the Republican Convention. They now have Russian soldiers training in the U.S., and some insiders believe that these foreign troops are joining with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security toward some sort of illicit action against Americans under the pretense of “peacekeeping” during a time of civil unrest in America.

In my opinion, having foreign troops coming into the U.S. for any reason is dangerous, and Sheriff Richard Mack agrees with me.

And now, because of inner-city gun-related crime rates, and recent isolated shootings and mass killings, the emotionalistic calls for gun control have been on the increase. This despite violent criminals who disobey laws against assault, rape and murder probably are not inclined to obey gun laws as well.

And, as John Lott has noted, would-be assaulters, rapists and murderers are less likely to commit their crimes when they know their prospective victims are armed.

But because of the emotionalism surrounding certain tragedies, even Republicans such as SCOTUS Justice Antonin Scalia, radio host Michael Savage and TV host Bill O’Reilly have shown irrationality on the matter. How will Americans, in their cars stuck in busy intersections when flash mobs rampage and attack them, be able to defend themselves if they have been disarmed by the government? When looters and burglars break into their homes and businesses, how will disarmed homeowners and businesspeople protect themselves?

And you can say what you want about anti-UN “conspiracy theories” and so forth. But, mirroring a zany 1961 U.S. State Department call for complete civilian disarmament, the 2012 UN Arms Trade Treaty would require signing member nations to enact much stricter national gun ownership restrictions. That was up for a vote in July but has been postponed until probably later this year. Some analysts have interpreted Article 15 of the Treaty to allow for foreign troops in the U.S. to confiscate guns from Americans in their homes. Even having U.S. troops going around door to door to search for and confiscate firearms is itself illegal and unconstitutional, but foreign troops?

It should not be difficult to believe that not just local police but our own U.S. troops would go door to door to seize Americans’ means of self-defense, when we know that they have much experience in doing just that in Iraq, a country in which U.S. troops had no business or reason to be, violating private Iraqi civilians’ own right to bear arms and defend themselves.

As the people’s right to defend themselves against looters, rioters, rapists and killers, as well as against government tyranny, is being criminally whittled away by the degenerates in charge, those same degenerates are arming themselves up and preparing for something that could be interpreted as outright treason.

I have already expressed concern about martial law and explained that U.S. military and other federal armed goons and local police, who have all sworn to obey and defend the Constitution of the United States, are obligated to disobey unlawful orders by commanding officers including the U.S. President.

Unlawful orders include those in which a soldier or an officer is ordered to violate a presumably innocent civilian’s rights to free speech, protest, dissent and criticize the government, right to bear arms and defend oneself against criminal assailants including government criminals, right to due process, and “right to be secure” in one’s person, home and effects. If the officer or soldier does not suspect a civilian of some actual crime, then that agent of government is obligated by law to leave the civilian alone, no matter who ordered otherwise. (The Oath Keepers have made a list of orders they will not obey.)

Further treasonous is the rulers’ inviting foreign troops in to aid in the rulers’ abuses.

And, given the criminality of monetary easing to enrich bankers while creating inflation that robs the poor, one might very well describe those actions as treasonous as well.

If only Americans had listened to the American Revolutionaries’ warnings about paper money and tyranny, wealth redistributionism, and their warnings against foreign entanglements.

“Hate Speech” Is Not a Crime

Robert Wenzel has this post on Rand Paul being the only U.S. Senator who is holding up an “anti-lynching” bill, and Wenzel includes several tweets by ignorant people who aren’t considering Paul’s objections. However, I don’t think that Rand Paul himself is understanding why such a bill is objectionable.

Wenzel posts the relevant section of the bill:

(1) Offenses involving actual or perceived race, color, religion, or national origin.–Whoever, whether or not acting under color of law, willfully causes bodily injury to any person or, through the use of fire, a firearm, a dangerous weapon, or an explosive or incendiary device, attempts to cause bodily injury to any person, because of the actual or perceived race, color, religion, or national origin of any person– (A) shall be imprisoned not more than 10 years, fined in accordance with this title, or both;

Rand Paul’s objection, as quoted in Wenzel’s post, is that the bill will “conflate someone who has an altercation where they had minor bruises, with lynching…” and “would allow altercations resulting in a cut, abrasion, bruise, or any other injury no matter how temporary to be subject to a 10-year penalty…”

Now, Merriam-Webster online defines “lynch” as “to put to death (as by hanging) by mob action without legal approval or permission,” so, just as I had thought, lynching someone involves killing someone, and usually by hanging.

I agree with Rand Paul’s conclusions. However, that’s not the real problem with this new bill that apparently 99 ignorant Senators are supporting.

The real problem is that it is a “hate crime” bill. With the other “hate crime” laws and even the Civil Rights Act, these acts of legislation are criminalizing thought, feelings, and perceptions.

But thoughts, feelings and perceptions are not crimes.

In that proposed Senate bill that Rand Paul is holding up, “Offenses involving actual or perceived race, color, religion, or national origin…”And, “attempts to cause bodily injury to any person, because of the actual or perceived race, color, religion, or national origin of any person…”

So “hate crime” laws criminalize how someone thinks of someone else or something. Sorry. Only make it a crime to actually DO something to someone else that involves an act of physical aggression (or actual threat thereof). But for decades now the U.S. and the world has gotten out of control in going beyond condemning someone for racist, anti-Semitic or otherwise “offensive” speech or expression, but criminalizing such thoughts. (Jonathan Turley wrote a recent post on the criminalization of thought and speech.)

So, the police officer who murdered some guy committed that act of killing someone. It may be relevant to the case that the officer did so because of racist sentiment (if that were the case), but the racist sentiment itself is not a crime.

It is not a crime to be an ignorant hater of others based on race, whether the haters are black and hate whites or whether the haters are whites who hate blacks. Hate is not a crime. it is an emotion, an attitude, a mentality. I don’t condone that, by the way. The only people I hate, if I do hate anybody, are politicians and bureaucrats. They are scum.

Related to that stuff, Wenzel also has a post on the entertaining “civil war” going on within the New York Times. Some of the staff of the Times were apparently triggered by the microaggressions of neanderthal Sen. Tom Cotton who wrote an op-ed promoting Trump sending military in to deal with protests.

Some at the Times are saying there is an “Old Guard” there concerned with civil liberties, vs. the younger crowd concerned with being “woke,” and “social justice,” i.e. being irrational kooks far removed from reality.

Wenzel quoted some of Times staffer Bari Weiss’s tweets, including, especially: “The New Guard has a different worldview, one articulated best by @JonHaidt and @glukianoff . They call it ‘safetyism,’ in which the right of people to feel emotionally and psychologically safe trumps what were previously considered core liberal values, like free speech.”

Sorry, Ms. Weiss, no one has a “right” to “feel emotionally and psychologically safe.” (Keyword “feel.”) And thus, it has been implied, the millions of brainwashed “woke” millennial sheeple have a “right” to silence other people through censorship or violence, those others who have the guilt of “offending” or of causing the snowflakes some sort of anguish merely by speaking one’s mind or by expressing an opposing or dissenting point of view.

“Anti-racism” has gotten to the point that millions of brainwashed sheeple just couldn’t stand to hear Trump brag about how his policies (signing tax cuts into law and deregulation) resulted in the lowest unemployment rates for black Americans in history, so some of the more powerful “anti-racist” Trump-haters got into the “lockdown” business-closure mentality causing some of those same black Americans to LOSE their jobs, and now the “anti-racist” activists burning down or looting from entire businesses which effected in even MORE job losses of black Americans!

Talk about Stupid! You ignorant “anti-racist” activists have caused black Americans to lose their jobs!

It’s real craziness now. Our society apparently hasn’t learned anything when it comes to “Civil Rights,” and yes, TOLERANCE! That is, tolerance of dissenting or disagreeing points of view.

And how awful that the younger generation are being brainwashed to tolerate actual physical violence against innocent people and their property, homes and businesses (such as in the ongoing riots), but NOT tolerate speech or thinking that is “unapproved.” Not good.

The State of the Onion in Amerika, USSA

Happy New Year, everybody. So Donald Trump decided to start the new year by going into neocon puppet mode and bombing and killing an Iranian general who was allegedly targeting and killing Americans in Iraq. But why are Americans in Iraq in the first place? is the question we must ask.

I’ll get to that a little later. I really wanted to start this with the Democrats and the people on the left. We are in an election year, and, while Republicans are bad enough, the Democrats are quite the cheaters and sore losers. They don’t like the outcome of a presidential election so they aid and abet the national security state’s narrative of Trump-Russia collusions and “hacking the election,” none of which occurred, and they have Congressional investigations, the 2-year Mueller fishing expedition and exoneration, and when that’s not enough they use a CIA flunky in the White House and call him a “whistleblower” which he is not, and do more investigations and even a House impeachment based on a phone call, repeatedly and erroneously describing the phone call with a foreign leader as asking the foreign leader to “investigate a Trump election opponent,” which it wasn’t in any way, and then have an election year Senate trial for no good reason.

And that is just one dirty way that today’s Democrats are cheating, first with trying to overturn a legitimate election of 2016 and then by trying to tarnish the 2020 election with all the aforementioned. But not only that regarding the presidential election but with other elections as well. Democrats won’t allow requiring IDs for voting. They don’t seem to mind requiring IDs for cashing a check or flying, but not for voting. They say that’s “racist,” although minorities are just as capable of providing an ID as others are. No, the real reason is because the Democrat activists want voter fraud and cheating in elections. There are also same-day voting registration and automatic registration with license renewal, etc. Not only those things, but there’s this new scheme called “ranked-choice” voting the latest way for mainly Democrats to complicate voting enough so that the actual winner of the election loses the election.

Republicans are bad too, don’t get me wrong here. Like in the 2000 election when Al Gore won in Florida, but the Republican majority on the Supreme Court rubber-stamped a Bush-Cheney win. Hmm, it seems like that was just yesterday, for some reason. And as I have already mentioned, the two Establishment parties, Democreep and Rethuglican, are both a criminal racket and should be outlawed, in their making laws to restrict the rights of non-DemoRethug candidates to get on ballots.

And what’s the latest with the 2020 campaign? Now I thought I heard that Democrat Cory Schnooker suspended his campaign, but on the Internet it seems that he hasn’t, although he’s currently at about 2-3% on the daily tracking polls as of this morning. But it is the case that Julian Castrate has “suspended” his campaign. He couldn’t even get 2%.

So the Democrat Party is the “racist party” now? Three white men and a white lady are now in the lead, Joe Kinnock, Burning Cinders, Pete Butternutter, and Elizardbeth Warren. (I guess the Democrats don’t want another minority president again just yet after 8 years of Obama?) And no, Liawatha is not a “minority”! Others who are now out of the race also include Kamala Harris and NY Mayor Bill duh Blasio. (See how national security bureaucrats have groomed Mayor Pete for future power-grabbing, and see his road-to-communism economic plan. Yay!)

Okay, okay, I’ll stop it with the making fun of people’s names. It’s Christmas, after all. And New Year’s, etc.

Continuing here. The Republicans are bad too, and communists just like the Democrats. For instance, regionally speaking, in New England there are two liberal Republican governors, Chris Sununu of New Hampshire and Charlie Baker of Massachusetts. As I have mentioned here before, Sununu signed the bills for “transgender rights” and anti-“conversion therapy” into law, just a few weeks before his reelection in 2018. So Sununu doesn’t believe in private property rights or freedom of thought and conscience.

And now, Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker — or should I say, Charlie “Half-Baker,” especially more recently in his and his Bacon Hill cohorts’ frantic conniving and scheming to find a way to spend the state’s $1 billion budget surplus! Hmm, they have a surplus of $1 billion and so they are trying to figure out just how to spend it. Doh!

How to spend the people’s money that these bureaucrats stole from the people! Hey, here’s an unusual suggestion: why not give it back to the people! Ya think? It’s their money, and obviously it is a billion dollars more than your already bloated budget calls for, so you in the gubmint don’t need it! (Alas, that never occurs to greedy, power-mad, thieving government parasites. Oh, well.) Like Democrats and leftists, many of today’s Republicans and conservative statists live off the hard labor of the workers.

So with Republicans like these, who need communists? Speaking of communist Republicans, Laurence Vance had this recent post on “Marco Rubio: Republican Communist, Rubio wants the U.S. government to have a ‘pro-American industrial policy’.” (That’s actually more fascism than communism, although in my view they are both the same, with fascism having a slight pretense of private property which isn’t even private property because the real owners are the gubmint and its bureaucrat criminals. But I digress.)

And Charlie Half-Baker is also a fascist, in his constantly banning things, like menthol cigarettes and flavored tobacco and vaping products, banning “conversion therapy” just like NH Gov. Sununu did. Baker also signed a bill restricting opioid drug prescriptions, ordering schools to screen students for addiction risk, and concocting a state “Prescription Monitoring” database. So much for doctor-patient privacy, fascist half-baker.

And nationally, the Republicans are terrible and yes communist-like in their anti-immigration, anti-foreigner drooling. They oppose free markets and private property rights in their wanting not only bureaucratic restrictions and a police state to prevent foreigners from entering “our” country, but an actual physical government wall on the border. You can read all my elaborations on those points regarding the immigration issue in this post, if you are interested.

When it comes to freedom and free markets, in a free society everyone has the freedom to come and go as they please, and everyone has the freedom to buy and sell whatever they want and to and from anyone they want, without any bureaucrat’s authorization required, including one’s labor and employment, as long as they are peaceful, as long as they don’t violate the person or property of others.

Unfortunately, many in the anti-immigration crowd believe in this myth that the whole territory is “property” that is being violated or trespassed by “unauthorized” people, in the same way that someone breaks into someone’s home. But no, the territory as a whole is not a parcel of property, it is just a territory. There is no such common or public or U.S. citizen ownership of the territory as a whole, because that would imply that everything within the territory is commonly owned, and would negate the idea of private property.

And like many of today’s Democrats and leftists, many of today’s Republicans and conservatives are also narcissists and moral relativists. We see that in their being True Believers in the false god of American Exceptionalism, in their blind worship of the national security state and the military.

For instance, most of the “conservatives” I have heard in the past day or so have been showing support for Donald Trump’s bombing and killing of the Iranian general in Iraq. Their rationale is that the general is responsible for “killing Americans in Iraq.” But wait a minute, why are there Americans, specifically U.S. military, in Iraq? Why have they ever been there? Are there Iraqi soldiers here in the U.S.? Of course not. We would see them as … “invaders”! So, if people actually believed in the Golden Rule, they would see U.S. military in Iraq as invaders in the same way, because that’s exactly what they are.

A lot of people are also ignorant, respond emotionally to government propaganda, such as post-9/11, and cheer their government’s crimes on without question. But when someone points out that the U.S. government invaded Iraq in 1991 and occupied and bombed the Middle East prior to 9/11 and that there wouldn’t have been a 9/11 were it not for President George H.W. Bush starting that first Iraq War in 1991, then the obedient sheeple accuse one of “siding with the terrorists,” and all other expressions of their government-worship brainwashing.

That’s an example of the conservative/nationalists’ short-sightedness and inability to question or challenge their believed rulers, and their Dear Leader Donald Trump as well.

Another example regarding this Iran paranoid propaganda stuff is that I hear the national security “experts” and talk radio ditto-heads constantly referring back to the 1979 Iranian Revolution including their taking of Americans hostage, but not to times prior to that.

The conflict with Iran goes back to the 1950s, started by the CIA, which after taking down Iran’s democratically elected prime minister the CIA then supported the Shah’s police state “SAVAK.” (And it’s really all about oil, as well.) So, if the CIA didn’t engage in all that tyranny against Iranians, which reinforced a growing Islamic extremist movement, there probably wouldn’t have been a hostage taking and “Revolution.”

But many people believe in this American Exceptionalism crap, in which the U.S. government may invade and occupy and bomb other countries, but certainly not the other way around. They believe that the U.S. government has some sort of moral authority over those other countries that those other countries don’t have over the U.S. So, rejection of the Golden Rule and belief in moral relativism are the highlights of today’s “conservatives” and the Republican Party. (See Laurence Vance on the madness of the military mindset, by the way.)

So of course the bloodthirsty warmongers who believe in American Exceptionalism support more bombing in Iraq, Iran, Syria, and all points between. I think they really just love the idea of bombing foreigners, quite frankly.

And so in the new year of 2020 we will have another useless election that won’t result in any change for the better, because it is a choice between Tweedledum and Tweedledee, a choice between one criminal or criminal-wannabe and another criminal or criminal wannabe. In USSA Amerika the culture has dumbed down and we have lost the basic sense of morality and common decency, the sanctity of private property and the principles of self-ownership and non-aggression that “America” was founded on. Happy New Year!
