Amerikan Terrorists, American Tragedy

Manuel Valenzuela: The Rise of the Amerikan Nazis (Part I)
Manuel Valenzuela: Death of Democracy (Part II)
When the thunderous clouds of fascists past and corporatists present finally dissipate over the vast lands of the United States, leaving in its wake a nation recovering from the violent downpours of mass lunacy, fear and collective schizophrenia that have caused a dustbowl-style drought of humanity in the nation of gluttonous undertakings, it will finally be seen, beyond the enveloping haze of post 9/11 hypnosis hindering American visibility, the devastation of what was done to us and what has been done to the world in our name, oftentimes with our willing consent and through our complicit guilt through silence and acquiescence.
The shock and awe storm of the Amerikan Nazis will inevitably one day pass, as all tyrannies eventually do, yet what will remain to haunt us, what will tug at our conscious for years to come, will be the dishonor and shame upon our society for the human malice spawned in the minds of so many millions of Americans. For the Amerikan Nazi phenomenon has with the passing of each sunset grown and mutated beyond the small cabal of criminal corporatists, power hungry warmongering fascists, military-industrial complex elites, delusional Zionist-first neocons, religious Bible-Belt fundamentalists and profit over people capitalists. Today, the cancer is spreading far and wide, infecting those residing inside the belly of the beast, afflicting first and foremost the most unenlightened and ignorant among us.
Tens of millions of Americans are being transformed into conduits of barbarism and catalysts of violence, regenerating the evil of racism against an entire population of purposefully scapegoated innocents whose only crime is belonging to a group the Amerikan Nazis have chosen as the necessary enemy from which to unleash perpetual war for perpetual profit. The deliberate conditioning of tens of millions of citizens by the Amerikan Nazis into purveyors of mass murder and violence accepting and indeed deriving pleasure from the death of 100,000 innocent Iraqis should send shockwaves throughout the world that perhaps a communal lunacy has infiltrated a large segment of the American people.
This has been achieved through the deadly mixture of raging patriotism/nationalism and the powerful ignorance ingrained in Christian fundamentalism methodically injected into the populace. The Amerika of the Amerikan Nazis is a land where the collective memory of the population is easily forgotten and recycled in spans of eight and twelve hours. It is a land where news is as artificial as aspartame, and as corrosive and cancerous to the mind as the sweetener is to the body. Amerika is a nation where the attention-span of the average American is that of a gnat, from birth the brain rewired through ceaseless hours of watching rapid-moving, perfection-filled fiction television imagery.
The country of the Amerikan Nazis is one where more and more citizens are dependent on the effects of mind-altering and controlling pill popping pharmaceutical drugs, a land where education in schools is nonexistent, serving only to brainwash to the tunes of a corporate dominated world and a government obedient drone, and where corporate controlled television spawns state-sponsored jingoism in a raging orgy of propaganda, in the process becoming the thinking grey matter of so many people who not only believe every word they listen to, they regurgitate it as their own. In a country where the airwaves are both omnipresent and omnipotent, the minds of those residing in its entrails are easily corralled, controlled and conditioned.
In order for the fictional war on terror to succeed, an enemy must exist, for offensive wars of conquest cannot exist without enemies. The masses must be conditioned that this enemy must be feared, for fear blinds human logic and analytical thinking, and this fear must be manipulated into hatred, for hatred is itself a catalyst for ceaseless war through control of a now conditioned, manipulated and militarized populace. As long as fear leads to hate war will be present if it is sought by warmonger leadership, for hate blinds and is easily controlled by puppet masters moving minds like sacrificed pawns on a chessboard.
With an enemy selected, alien in culture, language and religion, fictionalized, stereotyped, slandered and ostracized, conditioned into the American mind as an uncivilized barbarian seeking only destruction and terror, unknown and not understood, made to be feared and hated, the Amerikan Nazis, through their vast army of lackeys in government and the corporate media, indoctrinated a susceptible public to the next enemy created to captivate the minds of the American citizenry. The new heathen and savage, the inhuman ‘Untermensch’ of the German Nazis and the Israeli-Zionists had been born, now free to be mass murdered and dehumanized, their lands, resources and lives invaded and conquered.
With a complacent and indifferent Amerikan populace, conditioned that to be Arab-Muslim was to be below human, thereby erasing any human guilt of complicit murder and devastation done in their name, validating the savage assault on human rights, the reality and truth of what has transpired in Iraq hidden and whitewashed by a criminal corporate media enterprise, the war of aggression and utter annihilation of a society could commence.
It is perhaps a product of the lack of accountability at the highest reaches of governance why tens of millions of Amerikans applaud the utter destruction of an entire society. If the Amerikan Nazis at the top, nothing but war criminals and criminals against humanity and the planet, are able to direct atrocities on a massive scale without so much as a whisper of guilt or questioning, then average Amerikans are surely able to discern from this that tacit approval of the brutality occurring in lands thousands of miles away is therefore warranted. Thus the acceptance of state sponsored terrorism has been birthed.
Indeed, at the upper echelons of government Amerika is about to approve as Attorney General the man responsible for making legal the use of dehumanizing torture on prisoners of war, thus validating war crimes oftentimes against innocent people who happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. To nominate and approve such a man to head the Justice Department would be to make torture an accepted mechanism in the perpetual war abroad and the growing police state at home. Before long, torture, whose resulting confessions can now be used against the victim, will become a mainstay part of Amerikan justice and jurisprudence, used to find guilt, imprison the innocent and instill the face of fear on a terrified populace.
When an aggressive, invading nation is also the most powerful country on Earth, the rules of war, in a battle pitting poor versus rich, can get trumped and rewritten to suit the interests of the Amerikan Nazis. Interpreting the laws of war and of enemies in favor of the superpower, with hardly a voice of disapproval from the larger world community, has led to untold levels of torture and humiliation, dehumanization and suffering.
Suddenly torture has become a legal justification to condemn prisoners, many of whom will say anything so the pain and suffering will stop, to a sadistic ritual prevalent in the Amerikan armed forces and in society in general. It is a product of a violence based society, a war culture conditioned from birth to seek the way of the gun and the philosophy of force. This reality can be seen in the incessant war crimes being committed in Iraq and Afghanistan today. The truth is never easy to accept, but it is the truth nonetheless.
Based on the racist idea that Arabs and Muslims are nothing more than subhuman barbarians, the systematic torture of body and mind has caused terrible suffering to the victim and inhuman pleasure to the perpetrator. Interpreted and given credence by Alberto Gonzalez, approved by George Bush and implemented by both the Justice and War Departments, torture has become as symbolic of Amerika as apple pie. The photos of torture we have all seen countless times are the true face of Amerika, a land the Amerikan Nazis call home to the roaring applause of tens of millions of people.
From sleep deprivation to loud music to solitary confinement to imprisonment in tiny claustrophobic cages to intimidation and bites by attack dogs to verbal abuse to food and water deprivation to heat exposure to the wearing of blinding hoods to asphyxiation to being submerged in water to having all appendages tied together to laying motionless on the ground for days, surrounded by your own fecal and urine waste to getting punched with fists throughout your body to getting struck by rifle butts in the head to being forced to live life completely nude (the most disgraceful form of punishment to Muslims) to being beaten and kicked to being forced to perform degrading sexual simulations with other prisoners to being sexually raped to being anally sodomized by brooms and light fixtures to being slowly electrocuted with wires attached to your appendages and private parts to slowly being pummeled to death to getting shot in the stomach without medical assistance to finally succumbing to human evil and leaving the wretched world you had been trapped in. This is the work of wickedness, of an evil whose dehumanization will leave those not yet dead wishing they were. This is the product of the Amerikan Nazis, of Amerikan Terrorists.
Yet in the realm of the psychotic only grunts and pawns have been brought to justice. Only those told what to do by hierarchical chain of command emanating directly from the White House have been made scapegoats. It is those at the top, however, the Amerikan Nazis, who initiated the reign of terror upon the lands of the Middle East. It was those without empathy, those without a sense of human understanding that signed the paperwork necessary so that evil could be unearthed.
Trained by the Israelis to the best dehumanizing devices, tools and forms of torture to be used against Arab Muslims, Amerika now finds itself on par with the German Nazis of the 1930’s in the sheer ruthlessness of its indiscretions. Amerikan gulags now dot the Earth, from Guantanamo in Cuba to Abu Ghraib in Iraq, from the prisons known to nobody in Afghanistan to those financed by Amerika in Israel to the CIA torture jet flying victims to your friendly neighborhood torture-loving regime. A system of gulags and concentration camps now abound, hidden from view and from reality, invisible but known, undoubtedly unspeakable in horror and devastating to both body and mind.
In a year or two or three, these institutions of human malice might be imported to Amerika, serving as centers of re-education against dissidents, artists, progressives, minorities and the ever useful scapegoated enemy. How many Muslims picked up after 9/11 remain missing? How many have been disappeared, never to be seen again? After all, it is said that human rights violations are first enacted on foreigners before commencing on citizens. This is Amerikan fascism at its best, a way to silence and disappear those whose opinions differ from the regimes, much like those Amerikan sponsored despots in Brazil, Chile and Argentina.
The Amerikan Terrorists have devastated an entire nation, destroying the fabric of society, exporting chaos and anarchy into the Cradle of Civilization. Fear reigns in Iraq, its citizens unable to feel secure or live life as they once used to. Most prefer the tyranny of Saddam to the devastation of the Amerikans. Over 100,000 of their loved ones have been killed in a year and a half. Many more have been maimed in body and mind, forever to carry the physical and mental scars inflicted on them by the occupiers.
Entire cities, such as Fallujah, lie in ruins, devastated by aerial bombardments meant as a form of collective punishment on an entire population. Daisy cutters and 2,000 pound bombs flatten entire city blocks, candy-like cluster bombs spread destruction throughout neighborhoods, their sinister candy and toy-like appearance a curious delight to young children. Napalm is being dropped onto homes and streets, its gel-like petrol attaching itself to human flesh as it burns the life out of innocent Iraqis. Soldiers have been told to shoot anything that moves; snipers pick off women and children as if they were carrying AK-47s. Bullets riddle the skies, mortars explode on the ground, car bombs devastate the occupiers and all hell has broken loose in the lands of Mesopotamia. A much deadlier and silent killer, however, lurks in the wings.
Depleted uranium will kill more than all the bombs and bullets and artillery shells it is attached to. For 4.5 billion years Iraq will burn in the silent heat of radiation, condemning millions of innocents to radioactive black dust penetrating bodies, like a parasite attaching itself to all vital organs, bones and muscles. Cancers and diseases have and will continue to increase exponentially; birth defects will only get worse. Already Iraq is producing reproductive mutations the likes of which have never been seen. Invisible clouds of silent death are infecting the land, the soil and water of a land once called fertile, gushing with rivers that helped spawn civilization.
How many hundreds of thousands will die thanks to a nuclear war commenced by the Amerikan Nazis? How many deformities will Iraq have to deal with? The genetic code of these people may be in the process of mutating thanks to depleted uranium, a process not discriminatory on Amerikan troops. The same madness of cancers, disease, lower immune systems, chronic illness and birth defects affecting Iraqis is also being transported back to the United States inside the bodies of soldiers. They will suffer the same consequences as their Iraqi counterparts, having already experienced such ramifications after Gulf War I, where thousands of veterans have already died from depleted uranium exposure, though nicely covered up the corporate media and the government.
Amerikan Nazis are Amerikan terrorists, unleashing fear and insecurity in the United States and savage carnage in Iraq and Afghanistan. They have manipulated our psychology just as they have devastated that of Iraqis and Amerikan troops returning to a world now alien to them. Tens of thousands of soldiers whose vital organs are now protected by Kevlar vests have survived deadly attacks, though to many, a life maimed and without appendages, with severe burns and head injuries, suffering the corrosive demons of a war that will never escape their thoughts, is what they can expect for the remainder of their lives. Sacrificed for a war without honor, based on lies and deceit, fought for profit and power, the Amerikan soldier returning home will be eaten from the inside out by inner demons tearing him or her apart thanks to the atrocities they saw or committed, or by the deadly and oftentimes miserable manifestation of depleted uranium as it tears the body in pieces.
Karma has a way of returning favors. For every action, after all, there is an equal and opposite reaction.
The legacy of the Amerikan Nazis abroad will be the utter destruction of human rights in the Middle East and the untold level of carnage created in Iraq, where the resurrection of human evil has been successfully implemented. Hundreds of thousands are now dead, entire cities lay in ruins, now glowing with the poison of radioactive depleted uranium, and an entire society has been gutted. Reincarnations of Nazis past does the world find itself dealing with, though blind most remain to the human evil taking place in Iraq thanks to a complete propaganda-laced blackout of the reality and truth behind the war.
Through the illegal invasions and occupations, the torture, the gulags, the razing of cities, the dehumanization of Muslims, the use of DU and napalm, acts of collective punishment, the death of 100,000 innocents, the disappearance of Arabs and the willful trashing and utter disrespect for human rights the world can see what leads the United States today. It is a new form of Nazi, or human wickedness if you will, running amok, in control of the most powerful nation on Earth, as well as its population.
From the past arrives the present, as Nazis have existed throughout man’s brief but tumultuous history. Always reincarnated to once more unleash humanity’s evil upon our kind, brought back from the dead to baptize violence among the plains of the planet and reborn to once more tempt mankind’s will to self-annihilate itself, the Nazi rise to power, and its grip on war and human violence, is but the challenge we give ourselves to see whether or not we can learn from our historical mistakes and progress forward in time and space.
Their rise is the greatest obstacle we grant ourselves, being that we forever remain addicted to suffering, and the ultimate marker by which we measure our insatiable need for violence. We always let them rise, inexplicably blinded by their ascension, yet, somehow, the Nazi always falls, after laying waste to land and man, and nearing us to the self-extinction we always seemingly toy with. At the end, the goodness of humanity defeats the evil of greed, the addiction to power and the violence of warmongering leaders.
We only grant them an enormous head start from which they unearth their devastation upon the world. We fall asleep, becoming drones captivated by their aura, only when on the verge of their triumph do we mobilize. The time to catch up is upon us, for this batch of Amerikan Nazi is as rabid as they come.
Lacking education while growing abundant in ignorance, sprouting from birth conditioned chants of patriotic fervor and for years dumbed-down through school and television, possessing no free logical thought while regurgitating the opinions of corporate media puppets, manipulated through fear and insecurity, brainwashed to the dogma of false prophets and religious fundamentalists, trained to never question authority and always follow the dictates of governance, tens of millions of Americans are falling prey to the hypnotizing light of the Amerikan Nazis. Tens of millions are in the process of or have already become Amerikans, trying to establish the tyranny of the United Corporations of Amerika, the antithesis of what hundreds of millions of sane, good, decent human beings who live in America wish their nation to be.
Amerika is the country at the opposite parallel dimension of America, a land born through the paradigm shift that was 9/11, a nation of hate and racism, a land where at present almost half of its population wants to restrict the civil liberties of Arab and Muslim Americans, simply out of ignorance, which leads to fear, which itself leads to hatred and racism, and simply because marionettes tens of millions of people have become, their strings easily toyed and manipulated with. (What’s next, Muslim ghettos, cattle-car trains, concentration camps, gas chambers? What is this nation becoming? I fear what another ‘terrorist’ attack will lead to) Amerika is a country captured by fear and madness, bred by ignorance and brainwash education, a populace hanging in the trance-like vortex of schizophrenia, afraid of dark-skinned bogeymen and different cultures, captivated by the systemic manipulations of the corporate world and its brainwashing media. Hypnotized like deer to car lights, Amerikans are traveling down a slippery slope of lunacy, tens of millions transfixed in collective psychosis, regressing back to 1930’s Germany, each month hating more, fearing more, racism and scapegoating fusing into a deadly mixture of acceptance of what is being done in their name, their thirst and acceptance of Arab blood growing with each new drumbeat of war and image of Muslim carnage.
To live in Amerika is to live in a nation devoid of free-thinking minds, with education, healthcare and necessary social services being eviscerated each year in favor of an ever-growing Department of War budget – now $450,000,000,000.00 annually, not to mention another $200,000,000,000.00 that it has taken to prosecute the war in Iraq – providing untold sustenance and profit to the military industrial complex. It is to live in a nation embarked on preemptive war of aggression, illegal and immoral, designed for oil control and profits, imperial hegemonic expansion, for the security of an apartheid, racist regime, for Iraqi resource pillage and usurpation, and the complete highway robbery of America’s treasure by the criminal elite, even as poverty, unemployment, outsourcing, hunger and illness grows throughout America and even as the gap between rich and poor continues to increase. In the billions of dollars being stolen, both from Iraqis and Americans, can the real reasons of this greed-infected, capitalism-crazed invasion and occupation be seen.
The Amerikan Crony Capitalism Crusade has been unearthed from the soils of centuries ago, designed to bring the ‘miracles’ of the Almighty Dollar to savages and barbarians of the Middle East, with the expansion of imperial hegemony disguised as bringing freedom, democracy and human rights to the region. In reality, only death, destruction, chaos and human hell are being exported by Amerika and its platoons of corporate mercenaries killing and maiming in the name of Amerikan style debauched democracy and crony capitalism.
The delusional and fanatical among us, however, see what Amerika is doing in Iraq as the beginning of yet one more failed Christian Crusade, pitting Christianity (good) versus Islam (evil) on the way to Armageddon and the second coming, an event extremists have been waiting 2000 years for, each generation as disappointed as the previous when no higher power arrives to turn off the lights on humanity. This time will be no exception, but to the Amerikan Nazis it is a useful fiction to pacify and gain the support of millions of worshiping Amerikans who see the salvation of Israel and the invasion of evildoers as necessary steps on the way to the Rapture. It seems theological control of believers still thrives, in the present as it did the past, to attain the vested interests of those in power.
The Amerika of the Amerikan Nazis is designed to exist as a Christian fundamentalist theocracy, the better to dumb-down and control the populace, where tectonic shifts are blamed on the gastrointestinal rumblings of an imaginary entity, where Earth is believed created in six days, where woman is believed derived from a single male rib (talk about the male ego of those who concocted such fiction), where through fault of women humanity was banished from Eden, forever tainted with sin, where Noah saved every conceivable species on Earth in his ark during the Great Flood (which now is said to have created the Grand Canyon), where the continuing erosion of the fable of creationism by science is giving rise to ever more creative and desperate strategies trying to save the primitive and archaic thought of thousands of years ago (think intelligent design being taught in schools), where a metaphysical god allows the unmerciful mass murder of tens of thousands of those it created in its own image, where killing and inflicting misery onto others is seen as a key needed to enter the kingdom of god, where peace and love are but impediments to the conquest of new souls and the exploitation of their lands, where destroying an entire society has the blessings of the Almighty because hey, it speaks directly to Amerika’s Dear Leader, George Bush, though his actions are the antithesis of Jesus’ teachings, making him the opposite of Christ, the Anti-Christ.
At the opposite end of the American spectrum, the America millions idealistically dream of, Amerika is an imperial bully arrogant in power and ignorant to history. It is a warmongering Empire addicted to both black blood below ground and red blood on the surface, a violence-laden nation apathetic and unknowing to the ways and peoples of the world, lacking precepts of humanity, breeding entire generations of desensitized and sadist-seeking robots programmed that only through the barrel of a gun can problems be solved. Amerika is a land controlled by the corporate world, spoiled by greed, rotting from the inside out by the exploitation and subjugation prevalent in crony capitalism, where profit will always come before people, the bottom line trumps the moral line and where the Almighty Dollar is the omnipotent sovereign ruling over its domain.
Amerika is a land of despotism and non-existent democracy, where Washington has become an overflowing and randy bordello opening its legs to the highest corporate bidder. It is an Empire of hypocrisy, espousing democracy and freedom abroad yet denying it throughout the globe, even in its own lands, where elections are a sham designed to give the appearance of legitimate democracy giving power to the People. The Amerikan Nazis have rigged elections in Afghanistan and in the United States, have devastated Haiti with a pre-planned coup, have meddled in the elections of former Soviet countries like the Ukraine and tried to destroy democracy in Venezuela, though failing in the process. As the need for natural resources continues to grow, with competition from China, Europe and Russia expanding, Latin America and Africa will likely see, once again, the exportation and infiltration of Amerikan style ‘democracy’ into their lands.
The Amerikan Nazis are no doubt attempting to subvert real democracy in Iraq, destabilizing the citizenry and installing yet another puppet proctor to mangle the interests of Iraqis in favor of those that put him in power. Throughout the globe, the Amerikan Nazis have installed, protected and sponsored dictators, despots and royalty in numerous underdeveloped nations, nothing but Amerikan puppets, minions and lackeys, pilfering these countries of their riches and of the interests of the native population, making extinct any semblance of honest and real democracy, sequestering freedoms, liberties and rights, and installing neo-liberal economic policies that act to exploit and pillage lands, peoples and their governments. This is democracy and freedom, Amerikan style. This is market colonialism and economic genocide. This is Amerikan capitalism.
Claiming a leadership mandate in human rights even as it tortures, rapes, pillages, destroys and murders tens of thousands abroad, Amerika holds two million of its citizens in prisons, many sent to rot inside cages for years at a time for petty crimes, many indigent and of color, unable to afford adequate representation in a system designed to imprison those who lack the education and resources to escape the halls of so-called justice. Amerika is the only industrialized nation to execute prisoners, for years hanging, shooting, electrocuting and poisoning inmates, many of who, it turns out, were sentenced unjustly, based on indigence, skin color and racism.
Amerika is the land of overabundance and of waste, even when the planet can no longer sustain the appetite wrought by a plague of locusts devouring everything in its path. Addicted to materialism, programmed to produce and consume, millions of gluttonous Amerikans sustain their habits through the exploitation, oppression and subjugation of third-world land, resources and peoples such as Iraq. Wars of conquest are validated and subsidized by those same citizens demanding inexpensive gasoline and heating bills, cheap foods and products, ever-larger homes made from forest and jungle wood, abundance of material wealth and the comforts afforded to those lucky to live in the most superfluous nation in the brief history of humankind. It is the control, subjugation and exploitation of poor nations’ governments, economies, resources and citizens by the United States that allows for the high standard of living for those residing inside its borders. It is our demand for cheap, excessive-filled lifestyles that makes us complicit in the devastation of countries such as Vietnam and Iraq.
In the lands owned by the Amerikan Nazis, the environment is seen as a resource to be exploited and destroyed, forever scarred by industrial machinery and the destructive hands of man. For wherever man goes, destruction soon follows. Amerika pollutes with wretched abandon, contributing twenty-five percent of worldwide carbon dioxide emissions even when its population is only five percent of the world. It refuses to abide by environmental protocols, mechanisms and regulations, arrogantly denying accepted science and thumbing its nose at the plight of the world, even as Earth continues getting sicker and more volatile.
Its corporate dominated government allows industry to pollute air, land and water with various toxins and poisons, contributing to tens of thousands of annual deaths, all premature and avoidable. In the Amerika of the Amerikan Nazis, the corporate world runs free to lace our foods with carcinogens, chemicals, hormones, preservatives, toxins and poisons that are killing and making sick hundreds of thousands per year, all in the name of profit, the bottom line and expanding revenues. If corporations were living, breathing human beings, they would be sentenced for mass murder, executed for being psychotic and criminal entities. Instead, their executives get bonuses and promotions.
Society is one based on an almost inescapable caste system that determines the future and present of millions, robbing them of talent and ability, denying them opportunity based on their hereditary environment, their socio-economic status and the color of their skin. Amerika is a nation whose system socially engineers castes, promising dreams and delivering nightmares, from birth creating divisions of labor, ethnicity, education, health, economic viability, environmental upbringing and opportunity, creating from the indigent and working classes the next generation of capitalism’s slaves and from the privileged elite the next generation of exploiters and oppressors, criminals and murderers.
The Amerika of the Amerikan Nazis is at war with science and education, bastardizing fact while espousing myth and fable in an attempt to further dumb down the citizenry. It is immersed in a never-ending battle against truth and reality, blitzkrieging us in a deluge of lies, delusions, deceptions, misrepresentations and manipulations, mixed together for control over millions of minds. The dumber the masses, the more power and control the Amerikan Nazis will have. The more power and control they possess, the harder it will become to abort their hegemony.
The Amerika of the Amerikan Nazis honors its cherished principles of corruption, criminality, mass murder, illegal wars and sadistic torture. It fights wars for Zionist interests, drops bombs for Israeli security and applies Zio-Nazi dehumanization methods perfected after years of Palestinian occupation. It abhors justice, civil rights, freedoms and equality. Capitalism, profit over people and greed are its mantras, the military industrial complex its lifeblood, corporatism it goal, the Establishment its true and only cerebral cortex.
In Amerika, the corporate media is nothing more than state and government propaganda, its journalist leeches sucking the mammary glands from the great corporate Leviathan. It hides truth, suppresses reality, sponsors the interests of its sponsors, fails to report and inform, distorts facts, whitewashes news and protects the interests of the hand that feeds it. It is a tool of the corporate world, a loudspeaker of the interests of the Amerikan Nazis. From its complicity in the debacle in Iraq Americans cannot see the reality of war, with its devastation and death, its destruction and suffering. Americans are prevented from seeing flag-draped coffins and the thousands of soldiers maimed for life. They are prevented from seeing the sacrifice made for mistake after bloody mistake and for achieving the interests and wealth of those in power. Through the sellouts acting as journalists we are given false propaganda and fictions designed to placate and control us. The Vietnam lessons have been learned, and under no circumstance will the populace be allowed to see the reality of war. Decades ago truth led to a growing tidal wave of anti-war action, which inevitably led to division, instability and a raging citizenry demanding an end to the conflict. To those in power, this mistake cannot be repeated.
This is the Amerika so loved by the Amerikan Nazis, the home of greed and the land of the slave, the cradle of growing ignorance and indifference. Fighting for the continued growth of wealth and power of the elite, the new Amerikans thus become the slaves and army of capitalism, living like serfs in beehive housing, forever indebted to their corporate masters, living day to day through the wages they must inevitably return to their employers and controlled by a system that decides how they spend their waking hours, what they can and cannot do, what foods they will eat, what products they will buy, what they will watch, how society will shift, how long they will work, how happy they will be. Amerikans thus become trapped and exploited by the same system they ignorantly follow and defend.
Beyond the appetite for vengeance and violence, the thirst for dark-skinned Arab blood and destruction, Muslim suffering and maiming, rampant scapegoating of enemies through xenophobia and homophobia, blind, psychotic patriotism and hypnotic nationalism, fundamentalist ignorance and brainwashing, and the blatant racism and arrogance of tens of millions of Americans since 9/11, lies a much more disgraceful, shameful, cold-blooded demon in the Amerikan consciousness. This is the silent complicity in the destruction of an entire nation and its people. Millions have relished the tragedy, and in this mindset the Amerikan Nazis have succeeded in turning once moral citizens into ravaging demons craving violence and destruction.
In time we will look back in shame and disgust at what was done in our name, at the war crimes tens of millions applauded and cheered. Only then will those hypnotized by lunacy awake, finding their humanity missing and their goodness extinct. To those who cry and lament the evil sponsored by the same nation that created the Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights, the devastation taking place is testament to the evil of the Amerikan Nazis, and our wonderment of how so many could be blinded and made to hate is only reinforced by the truth that emerges out of Iraq, usually from the wonders of the Internet.
We can only hope the return of America ushers in a new dawn of goodness and humanity, finally exorcising the fiend that is Amerika. Until then, however, the inner demons of what Amerika did in Iraq and Afghanistan will linger like a bad drought, drying our humanity and scorching the once temperate beliefs of hundreds of millions of good, decent, enlightened Americans whose head now bows in shame at the atrocities committed under the red, white and blue.
The Amerika of the Amerikan Nazis must not be allowed to exist, for if it does then the America of the majority will cease to exist, only to be found in the history books being fed to the bonfire of despotism, devastation and fascist belief. The struggle to regain the America of our dreams and our wishes is upon us, for everything that goes up must inevitably come back down. So it must be with the rise of the Amerikan Nazis.
