A Slip of Patriotic Paper

CharmSnake1030292

On small pieces of paper print the following message:

__________________
… FOR LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL …
I love my country
because it stands for freedom and justice.
Please remain seated
(or go down on one knee)
during the National Anthem
if you also love your country,
freedom and justice
… for all.
____________________

Pass the papers out at any event where the National Anthem is played, whether a little league match or a big pro event. Anybody, any spectator or fan, player or pro, is free to peacefully express a desire for justice. It’s as patriotic and American as it gets.

If you would like to test the patriotism of anyone or any organisation claiming to be patriotic or progressive, contact them and request that they encourage the act of remaining seated during the National Anthem as a demand for justice. You are likely to be surprised by who turns out to be a really or a falsey.

Progressive Nightmares

SpiderwebRust-1030835

Common Dreams is the name of a web and mail news organization. They claim to be progressive.
They are not.
They claim to be independent.
They are not.
They claim ”to bring the news that matters.”
They don’t.
They are a branch of the American Democratic Party with a mission to support and promote the “left-leaning” wing of that party. They are typical of almost all ”leading progressive voices of our time”, which they claim to represent.

Their ”Common Dream” (unstipulated) aims at returning to a time when the empire was kinder and more just. They are in other words reactionary, they don’t want to go forward (progress), but back (reaction). For all their progressive talk, they’re the alternative version of ”Make America Great Again” (without disturbing the money-oriented prevailing order or the foreign policy of dominance.)

Almost as often as they ”bring news that matter” they bring pleas of donations. At the heart of one of the latest of these ”beggar-mails” we can read that their ”leading progressive voices of our time /—/ speak truth to power. The voices that bring us new, progressive ideas that help take us one step closer to bringing our common dreams to life.”

Whenever you read ”speak truth to power”, you know a ”progressive” defender of the empire is on the soap box. Speak truth to power! Sounds great, says nothing. Well, not nothing exactly, it’s nonsense. It’s as logical as speaking truth to gravity or solar energy. Speaking truth to the people would be valuable, but let’s not get carried away.

They expose their impotence with the blatant lie that their progressive voices ”take us one step closer to bringing our common dreams to life.” Common Dreams has been amplifying these voices for 20 years. Are we closer now to our dreams than we were 20 years ago? No! We’ve been taking steps backwards. Common Dreams and the ”leading progressive voices of our time” talk progress but walk reaction. They are defenders of a dying empire. They represent Common Nightmares.

Imprisoned Graffiti

JailedGrafitti1030690

You can lock me in a cell
of decadent culture
behind bars of propaganda
but you can’t prevent me
from seeing what there is to see.
You invade, occupy and devastate
kill, maim and desolate
with technological frenzy
and historic proportions
and tell me
that all opposition
is terrorism.
It’s you
not me
who can’t see
the writing on the wall.

To Preach Impeach

Krozai-1030588

In the land of the free
millionaires
and home of the brave
billionaires
the we the people
ordinaires
try to achieve savoir-faire
by replacing Satan
and allowing the Devil
to take his place.
Extraordinaire!

 

(The present vice-president, who takes over for the present president,
has been described as a Christian Taliban.)

Imperial Logicization

IceOnRocks-1020848

It’s OK for us to kill
100s of 1000s and even millions of them
because we are good guys.
We have a democratically elected Congress
of lobbytomized millionaires
and a billionaire president
advised by billionaire financaires,
military militaires
and a nepotomized billionaire.
Should anyone survive
the massive destruction
of our shocking and awe-inspiring
hellfire weapon power
and blow themselves up
to kill a dozen of us
(well not us exactly,
but some of our citizen commodities)
they should be condemned
as bad guys
with the vilest adjectives available
while we carpet the scene of their violence
with flowers
and arrange a concert for their victims
to drown out the sound
of our continued mass murdering.

Uncle (Tom) Khan of London

Zilla-1030560

Mayor Khan of London may be short in stature, but he is a giant of hypocrisy.

In his short speech about the London Bridge attack he called the perpertrators ”sickening”, ”twisted”, ”barbaric”, ”evil”, ”unforgivable” and ”horrific” and referred to them three times as cowards. The attackers may qualify for all the adjectives applied by Uncle Khan, but cowards they are not. Cowards don’t rush into certain death by attacking people with knives in central London. A coward is someone who sits comfortably in luxurious surrounding while sending poor citizens to kill poor people in foreign countries. A coward talks indignantly about the death of a handful of citizen, while hiding 100s of 1000s of deaths in silence, and doesn’t dare mention the circumstances that drive young men to such desperation that they are willing to die and kill others to affect some retribution for the injustice, humiliations and bottomless losses they have suffered. A coward risks nothing, but talks bravely for the benefit of weapon dealers and conflict peddlers.

According to UN report 11 000 Afghani civilians were killed in 2015. Civilians! 30 a day for every day of the year. In Afghanistan. I don’t know the figures for Iraq, Syria, Pakistan, Libya, Yemen and Somalia but we can be rather certain that 100s of innocent people have been and are being killed daily, and that the British rulers (and subservient Mayors) are and have been directly or indirectly involved. For nearly two decades. Not to mention their juicy weapon sales to Saudi Arabia. And their support for apartheid Israel.

Of course, Uncle Khan is but one of the well-paid administrative clowns spouting demagogic rhetoric for the rulers. The admirable thing about him is his ability to speak at all with lips against his superiors’ assholes.
