In yet another of the now standard orgies of shameful behavior that charlatans engage in, Sarah ‘lock and load’ Palin has latched onto the Rolling Thunder Memorial Day rally as her latest public relations spectacle. Palin, out of the news as of late for her detestable national display of self-victimhood in the aftermath of the Tucson Arizona shooting rampage is back with a vengeance. The klavern of clowns that is the 2012 Republican party presidential field is bracing for the queen of the teabaggers and the ugly shrillness, race-baiting, rabble-rousing and insinuations of Obama the secret Muslim is going to be kicked up several notches. Palin, like a bad case of genital Herpes just isn’t going away, a parasite that refuses to detach from it’s host, Sarah Barracuda is poking her proboscis back into the national political scene and a shameful corporate media that has barely finished licking it’s wound after being played by “the Donald” is eagerly lapping it all up in all of their inept laziness.
Not that Sarah Palin, a Wasilla hillbilly piece of northern trailer trash who hit it big when John McCain, a real life war hero shockingly plucked her from obscurity in a desperate attempt to win the presidency is doing anything different. All of the Republicans and especially the teabaggers revel in shamelessly exploiting the nation’s war dead for their own political expediency. They are always the ones thumping their chests the hardest, shrieking the loudest for others to die on foreign soil for their slothful ignorance and waving the bloody flag of raw nationalism yet what they truly exemplify is a truly stupid form of cowardice unique to our star-spangled sheep colony. Today on Memorial Day, 2011 there are many a BBQ being fired up with the beer-sodden pigs that are the scumbaggers eating cheap hotdogs, waving their made in China replicas of Old Glory and praising chickenhawks like Palin and her ilk for their faux patriotism.
As a military veteran myself, there is nothing that I find more despicable and odious to me than those who cheer the wars and those who die in them while parking on their sofas playing Call of Duty on their XBoxes. Their support of tin pot Republican despots who also never served along with their fervor to destroy the very freedoms that so many paid with their lives for amounts to nothing less than spitting on the graves of those who are being honored today.
So a message to the nation’s war dead from the Palinazi teabagger fifth-column:
Other than a right-wing Koch Brothers underwritten Republican fascist political agenda hellbent on destroying America from with here is what you paid the ultimate price for:
So that law-abiding Americans could be spied on by their own government with the complicity of the corporate hacks in congress who lack the morality and the backbone to take a principled stand against such an egregious violation of the fourth amendment which specifically protects Americans against unwarranted invasions of privacy. All of the great totalitarians in the rogues gallery of the evil and the damned enjoyed the ability to conduct surveillance against their peoples so as to identify political opponents, quash dissent and suppress those who would seek to learn the truth about what sort of business is really conducted behind the closed doors of the Politburos, Reichstags and White Houses of the world. The rogue Bush administration’s use of the NSA in partnership with the telecom giants to electronically eavesdrop on law abiding citizens under the guise of protecting the cringing, servile, ignorant and apathetic populace of what was once justly referred to as ‘the land of the free and the home of the brave’ is an affront to every concept of freedom that you sacrificed so much to protect. Obama has not only continued the Bush Gestapo state but has reinforced it.
You perished before your time so that a rogue faction of extremist fascists could one day come to capitalize on mass public ignorance and apathy in order to rig not one but two national presidential elections, a bloodless coup that installed anti-American vermin like Richard Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Condoleeza Rice and a neo conservative junta whose ideologies were more influenced by the same thinkers who underwrote the Nazi regime. They are those who have far more in common with their brownshirted cousins than with the intentions of the founding fathers and whose seizure of the levers of power were manipulated by an utterly diabolical and ruthless Machiavellian traitor named Karl Rove to pit American against American using such age old tactics as race and religion baiting and feeding on nationalist frenzy so as to distort, deceive and mislead a cowed citizenry into surrendering the treasured liberties that you paid for with your lifeblood against enemies of the same sort of those who now shamelessly wrap themselves in the flag while waging war against the American people in the name of profiteering, empire and global hegemony. Obama has done not one goddamned thing to end these illegal wars and has now put yet another one on our tab in Libya.
You sacrificed so that America could one day become a torture state no better than the cruel and vicious enemies who you so valiantly fought against. The President of the United States and those who are the true power behind the throne have broken down barriers to inflicting cruel and unusual punishment against vaguely defined ‘enemies’ through the practices of acts so heinous that they are barred by the Geneva Convention which the axis of evil ensconced on the banks of the Potomac not only fail to recognize but hold in as much contempt as our very own constitution. Extraordinary renditions are used to transfer ‘enemy combatants’ to vile torture state nations where pesky courts do not act as an impediment to brutality and sadism. Our sexual perversion and wanton viciousness in acting out at Gitmo and Abu Ghraib has forever tarnished our people and our country in the eyes of the world outside of our brainwashed, self-indulgent fortress state. Neither history nor God will judge us favorably.
Gulag systems are currently being constructed right here in America by the same massive corporation that profits off of the blood and carnage in our latest illegal lie of a foreign war, Haliburton/KBR is the beneficiary of no bid government contracts facilitated by former CEO Richard Cheney, a five time draft deferment abusing chickenshit who dodged serving his country during the last bloody lie of a war in Vietnam. Who will ultimately be interned in these camps? Most likely the very Americans who choose to dissent against the tyranny of the cynical, amoral rulers of this sad, fading nation that once held so much promise but was betrayed by the enemies within whose disregard for democracy is surpassed only by their lust for power and riches. A heroic young whistleblower named Bradley Manning, an American citizen is being held in inhumane conditions and tortured right here in America as the pigs fire up their Memorial Day BBQs.
You served with honor so those who are the most dishonorable of all, those whose only loyalty is to money have destroyed the once mighty American manufacturing base and now this country is the world’s largest debtor nation, owing trillions to China and the same Arab countries whose tyranny towards their own people still surpass ours… barely.
Our foreign policy is now more concerned with defending the existence of the bellicose state of Israel, a country whose arrogant belief that it has been chosen for the glory of God’s favoritism mirrors our own deep seated and misguided belief in exceptional qualities and divine providence and acting as its Golem in securing the Middle East while unfairly ignoring it’s very own cruelty and inhumanity towards the Palestinians. This misguided support is against our very own self-interest and fuels the fires of hatred across the region towards our bestowing of special nation status upon the mortal enemy or the poverty stricken and oppressed, this only perpetuates animosity and leads to more ‘terrorism’, perhaps another 9/11 style attack is what is most desired because it will be the trigger event for the imposition of the dictatorial police state for which the infrastructure has already been built. With Bibi Netenyahu’s recent visit to the U.S. Congress which is most appropriately described as Israeli occupied territory there will be no serious change in policy as was evident by the thunderous applause that this Zionist war criminal received.
You forfeited your futures so that we could become the must uninformed, overly entitled, apathetic, ignorant, regressive, overindulgent, selfish, reckless, cowardly, decadent and just plain mean collection of bitches and bastards on the face of the planet. A people devoted to the accumulation of materialistic goods, the pursuit of hedonistic pleasures, gorged to the point at bursting at our groaning seams with the cheap products of consumerism, instant gratification and the fascination with the bread and circuses that distract from the rot of the empire. We as a people are so poorly versed in history that it is a safe bet that most of our young (and a good percentage of our mature) citizens cannot even identify the wars in which you spilled your blood or locate the countries in which you died on a map. Our disinterest in civics have led to a political system as corrupt as any in modern history and allowed for criminals and sociopaths to gain control of all of our institutions of power from which they loot and plunder and eat away at the pillars of American society like termites. Our regression into pre-Enlightenment religious dogma has only served to allow an intellectually lazy public to seek an easy answer to the complex problems of the modern world, our disdain for science as well as our increasingly destructive bent for fundamentalist religion has made us a laughingstock to the civilized world.
God Damn us all for betraying your honorable sacrifice, we sure as hell don’t deserve it.
I will close this little rant with a passage from Dalton Trumbo’s Johnny Got His Gun:
You can always hear the people who are willing to sacrifice somebody else’s life. They’re plenty loud and they talk all the time. You can find them in churches and schools and newspapers and legislatures and congress. That’s their business. They sound wonderful. Death before dishonor. This ground sanctified by blood. These men who died so gloriously. They shall not have died in vain. Our noble dead.Hmmmm..But what do the dead say?Did anybody ever come back from the dead any single one of the millions who got killed did any one of them ever come back and say by god I’m glad I’m dead because death is always better than dishonor? Did they say I’m glad I died to make the world safe for democracy? Did they say that I like death better than losing liberty? Did any of them ever say it’s good to think I got my guts blown out for the honor of my country? Did any of them ever say look at me I’m dead but I died for decency and that’s better than being alive? Did any of them ever say here I am I’ve been rotting for two years in a foreign grave but it’s wonderful to die for your native land? Did any of them say hurray I died for womanhood and I’m happy see how I sing even though my mouth is choked with worms?Nobody but the dead know whether all these things people talk about are worth dying for or not. And the dead can’t talk. So the words about noble deaths and sacred blood and honor and such are all put into dead lips by grave robbers and fakes who have no right to speak for the dead. If a man says death before dishonor he is either a fool or a liar because he doesn’t know what death is. He isn’t able to judge. He only knows about living. He doesn’t know anything about dying.If he is a fool and believes in death before dishonor let him go ahead and die.
Shame on you chickenhawks, shame on all of you rotten fuckers!
