Statists, Republicans, Democrats and, especially, Cop apologists give real insight as to how Hitler and Stalin were able to co-opt whole peoples into National Madness.
Every time a person says; Just don’t break the law” I remember the Holocaust and wonder how many people told the Jews to “just don’t break the law.” I wonder how many political dissidents in the Soviet Union were told “just don’t break the law.”
How man Khmer were told by Pol Pot apologists; “Just don’t break the law.”
How many politicians have used folks like your average Cop Apologist to murder and plunder whole nations?
I imagine many of the folks who justify every action by Police as necessary to “uphold the law” are the exact same people who rationalize concentration camps, re-education camps, genocide, mass murder and every other evil ever committed by the State.
It always starts with these folks. Those who see the evils of the State as necessary and good.
This is President Obama’s reaction to the death of James Foley. In the statement, he shows a naive, wishful view of World History.
Radicals are the “folks” who move history. Radicals end nations and start nations.
Even our Founding Fathers were radicals. Look back to the American Revolution. The Revolutionaries carried out some nasty deeds. Massacres…town burnings…hangings. I’m fairly certain they beheaded a few people as well.
Obama seems to think that history is made by peaceful “folks” who suddenly agree that things should change. I think he’s seen one too many “Faux Revolutions” in Eastern Europe. He seems to think that those “upheavals” were the norm. What happened when the Cold War ended and the walls came tumbling down. The history of the era is not so bloodless as they seem. The old regimes’ rulers died. It’s just that they didn’t show it on TV. The 90s upheavals were heavily sanitized here in the West. We weren’t shown the deaths that are inevitable with any regime change. These things are inherently violent.
And then we had the Balkans. Plenty of folks were killed. Massacres were everywhere in the Balkans. So much so that Clinton decided that he had to intervene. Serbians hate America to this day.
Below is the Obama delusion:
President Obama delivered the following remarks in Martha’s Vineyard on the beheading of American journalist James Foley by the militant group Islamic State. Transcript courtesy of Federal News Service.
PRESIDENT OBAMA: Good afternoon, everybody.
Today, the entire world is appalled by the brutal murder of Jim Foley by the terrorist group ISIL. Jim was a journalist, a son, a brother and a friend. He reported from difficult and dangerous places, bearing witness to the lives of people a world away.
He was taken hostage nearly two years ago in Syria, and he was courageously reporting at the time on the conflict there. Jim was taken from us in an act of violence that shocked the conscience of the entire world. He was 40 years old, one of five siblings, the son of a mom and dad who worked tirelessly for his release. Earlier today, I spoke to the Foleys and told them that we are all heartbroken at their loss and join them in honoring Jim and all that he did.
Now, Jim Foley’s life stands in stark contrast to his killers. Let’s be clear about ISIL. They have rampaged across cities and villages killing innocent, unarmed civilians in cowardly acts of violence. They abduct women and children and subject them to torture and rape and slavery. They have murdered Muslims, both Sunni and Shia, by the thousands. They target Christians and religious minorities, driving them from their homes, murdering them when they can, for no other reason than they practice a different religion.
They declared their ambition to commit genocide against an ancient people. So ISIL speaks for no religion. Their victims are overwhelmingly Muslim, and no faith teaches people to massacre innocents. No just god would stand for what they did yesterday and what they do every single day. ISIL has no ideology of any value to human beings. Their ideology is bankrupt. They may claim out of expediency that they are at war with the United States or the West, but the fact is they terrorize their neighbors and offer them nothing but an endless slavery to their empty vision and the collapse of any definition of civilized behavior.
People like this ultimately fail. They fail because the future is won by those who build and not destroy. The world is shaped by people like Jim Foley and the overwhelming majority of humanity who are appalled by those who killed him. The United States of America will continue to do what we must do to protect our people. We will be vigilant and we will be relentless. When people harm Americans anywhere, we do what’s necessary to see that justice is done and we act against ISIL, standing alongside others. The people of Iraq, who with our support are taking the fight to ISIL must continue coming together to expel these terrorists from their community. The people of Syria, whose story Jim Foley told, do not deserve to live under the shadow of a tyrant or terrorists. They have our support in their pursuit of a future rooted in dignity.
From governments and peoples across the Middle East, there has to be a common effort to extract this cancer so that it does not spread. There has to be a clear rejection of this kind of nihilistic ideologies. One thing we can all agree on is that a group like ISIL has no place in the 21st century. Friends and allies around the world, we share a common security and a common set of values that are rooted in the opposite of what we saw yesterday. And we will continue to confront this hateful terrorism and replace it with a sense of hope and civility.
And that’s what Jim Foley stood for, a man who lived his word, who courageously told the stories of his fellow human beings, who was liked and loved by friends and family. Today, the American people will all say a prayer for those who loved Jim. All of us feel the ache of his absence. All of us morn his loss. We keep in our prayers those other Americans who are separated from their families. And we will do everything that we can to protect our people and the timeless values that we stand for. May God bless and keep Jim’s memory. And may God bless the United States of America.
Most of the remarks were empty words. Harmless. Meant to make the Foley family feel as though the US did all it could to retrieve their son and bring him to safety. This is and obvious lie but one that all Presidents tell the American people. One can’t blame Obama for following in the footsteps of Reagan, Carter, FDR and LBJ. Lies are common when Presidents speak to the America people.
“All we have to fear is fear itself…;” said FDR. He left out the Bankers and others who love to push America to war for profit. After all, he was in cahoots with the Bankers. Why would he speak truth to the power of the Bankers in American Foreign Policy. If the American people were ever roused to the truth of American Banks…well, nothing. Americans are too busy watching American Idol.
Obama says that no religion “teaches massacre of innocents.” This lie ignores the commandments of God in the Old Testament and the Suras in the Qu’ran which continually command Muslims to murder the non-believer. Until we come to terms with the truth that religions (faiths) do command murder, genocide and the killing of those who believe differently, we’re not going to successfully change the attitudes of the believers of this Earth. We ignore the truths regarding these faiths at our own peril. Obama should know better as he is a secularist and only pretends to be a church goer for political reasons. It’s time, or rather it is past time, to speak the truth to these religions and of these religions.
Christianity and Islam have blood stained histories. That much they have in common. Both are knee deep in the blood of innocents. Let us speak the truth.
Obama also says that “people like this ultimately fail. They fail because the future is won by those who build and not destroy.”
This is half truth at best. Stalin did not fail. Mao did not fail. Pol Pot did not fail. Ho Chi Minh did not fail. Tamerlane did not fail. Genghis Khan did not fail. Alexander the Great did not fail. The radical and the violent succeed. The radical and the violent do not fail. To say that the future is won by those who build and not those who destroy ignores 6,000 years of human history. Even America has destroyed. The American North invaded the American South and destroyed it. The American South still feels the wrath of the Northern Invasion.
Obama’s hero Che Guevara is one of those who was a destroyer. He believed and acted on the belief that Capitalist societies must be destroyed in order to re-build a more egalitarian society. He acted similarly to ISIS and al Qaeda. Che used the tactic of terrorism to destroy the governments in Central and South America.
Perhaps, this has Obama confused.
What person who has lived a life and made mistakes could run for office and win? Why would any sane person wish to have his or her personal life flayed and left open for the criticism of hypocrites.
While Clinton was being Impeached for sexing up the fat girl, it was revealed that Henry Hyde had had an affair in similar manner at the same age as Bill Clinton. When asked about it, Hyde responded something to the effect that it had occurred when he was a young man and didn’t know better.
I lost my appetite for many politicians…hell, for most politicians in the Clinton Era. They lied, schemed and generally did the opposite of that which was good for America in the name of party politics.
The only proof of corruption needed is to look at the Oil and Health Industries.
The American “health” industry is disgusting. It’s a death cult. Profit as much as possible from poor health and death. No one in the health industry are interested in saving lives. They’re only interested in profits. They’ll give you a pill for 500USD a month that could be had in Canada for 500CAD a year.
On one side, the market pushes you fat pills that crushes your health and on the other side, the market pushes “health” that crushes your finances. All pushed by a market and a government that wishes only to tax and spend us into oblivion.
The tech is here to move away from the petroleum industry that has sucked us into the Middle east and it’s interminable wars. Yet, in order for America to remain the global police, we push oil and refuse to reach for other energy tech. We export oil. Yet, somehow we find it wise to import oil from our enemies in the Gulf and countries such as Venezuela. How does this make sense.
We meddle and intervene everywhere using “terrorism” as an excuse to spread terror. How does this make sense? Saudi Arabia is the epicenter of terrorism. The Nejd is the origin of the ideas behind the Muslim Brotherhood, al Qaeda, the taliban and every other extremist form of Islam excepting only the Iranians and their Hezbollah.
Yet, Saudi Arabia is our ally.
Most Muslim Extremists are either from the Nejd or were raised on the teachings of radicals in the Nejd.
Somehow, we can’t figure out that this is a problem. It’s as if there is some black liquid in our eyes with a lush green sheet acting as some kind of veil (or hijab not to be confused with Jihad!).
America has created it’s own enemies out of paranoia (N. Korea, Iran & Vietnam) or Imperialistic greed behaviors (Iran, Iraq, Russia, China, Somalia, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, etc) for over half a century now.
We created the Khmer Rouge in the same manner that we created ISIS and helped to create the Taliban. We even assisted in the rise of Ho Chi Minh and Mao through our stupidity.
And pls don’t get me started on the early days of the Soviet Union and how we propped up Stalin so that he could fight Hitler.
Almost every problem we have today finds American finger prints in it’s DNA.
But let’s talk about Obama and how idiotic he is.
And let’s call anyone who makes such statements a “blame America firster.”
Our economy is based on banks who use US foreign policy to rape local economies and gamble constantly. They can afford these gambles because the Fed and the US Gov’t will bail them out as they have done since 1907. The American tax payer is nothing more than a battery compartment for Banking regeneration in a post-fail economic recovery. It has been this way since the turn of the century.
But, we’ll all pretend that the President or Party in power actually matters.
(This is a rant I first posted to facebook…lol)
As for giving peace a chance, the sentiment is nice, but it does not work when your self-appointed enemy wants to kill you. Gandhi’s campaign of non-violence (often quite violent in its reality) only worked because his opponent was willing to play along. Gandhi would not have survived very long in Nazi Germany,Stalin’s Russia , Mao’s (or today’s) China , Pol Pot’s Cambodia , or Saddam Hussein’s Iraq . Effective non-violence is contractual. Where the contract does not exist, Gandhi dies.
