Macaca And Terror Politics - America Is Headed The Wrong Way! - Articles Surfing
"Let's give a welcome to Macaca, here. Welcome to America and the real world of Virginia." -- Sen. George Allen, Republican Presidential hopeful calling a student of Indian descent a "Monkey" in coded racist language. Allen then began talking about the "war on terror."
The recent terror arrests in Britain show the need to fight "for our security in a rational, serious way rather than being bogged down in a war than is harmful to our security." -- Ned Lamont on the terror arrests in the U.K. after beating incumbent senior Senator of Connecticut, Joseph Lieberman.
Ned Lamont's Connecticut victory is a victory for "level headed" America. George Allen's xenophobic slam is a demonstration of the extremist and desperate direction that some section of this country is so hell bent on steering it to...a one hundred year backtrack.
George Allen's apology is pure nonsense for his record of "accomplishments" speaks volumes. This same man:
1. Led the charge against a holiday for Martin Luther King - a prince of racial peace.
2. Is a key figure in fueling the rampant anti-immigrant mood in the country today - kick them ALL out (legal & illegal), they are contaminating our culture, taking our jobs, raping our women and introducing new diseases to our beloved motherland.
3. Had been dogged by numerous allegations of racial insensitivity for years as governor - his record as Governor of the state of Virginia (1994-1998) reeks of racially intolerant acts.
4. Has a past that includes a vociferous admiration of the Confederate flag and an office that once displayed a noose.
What more does one need to catalog this man as a die-hard racist?
Senator Allen is not only "foolish" and "mean" as some of his moderate Republican colleagues have called him but he is just a well-chronicled racist....period!
Because of his desire to become president in 2008 and due to the cognizance that an extremist will never be elected president in modern America, Senator Allen has introduced a half-baked anti-lynching legislation in the Senate and promised to lead the charge for an official apology for slavery...desperate political gerrymandering tailored to flaunt an extremist as a moderate.
The two Republican administrations of George Bush and Dick Cheney are textbook examples of how not to conduct the affairs of any government. I have watched this administration bungle and mangle the affairs of this great nation in the most alarming and reckless manner.
The 9-11 debacle was like a gong going off to mark the inauguration of a "rotten" era in American politics. This grave event has been milked and abused by greedy and selfish politicians at all levels of government, the media, the bigots and the supremacists.
Even the religious sycophants and "Jesus Freaks" such as Pat Roberts of the 700 Club have not been left out. Some are forecasting a third world war with quotations from the Bible...to advance their agenda of theft and deceit.
The Bush administration aided by some sectors of a partisan media has over the last six or so years outrageously manipulated a relatively factually ill-informed populace. A TV educated public that is largely incapable of analyzing news from a non-partisan and logical perspective. A people held at ransom by a marauding media in pursuit of the almighty dollar.
The people of the United States have been hoodwinked, cajoled and totally mesmerized by an administration fueled by "third world like" blood letting. "Scheduled" Terror alerts have been orchestrated for selfish political gain. Some exceedingly comical and outrightly ridiculous.
Intolerance, which until this administration came about, was somewhat subdued and slowly dying its natural death is now above the radar...thanks to George Bush and Co. Hate groups have been rejuvenated and re-invented...fueling hatred across the country.
On Immigration, Hate and "Macacaism"
Politicians are running amok taking sides on this issue to position their selfish selves for the forthcoming November elections. Some like Colorado's Tom Tancredo have even forged "coalitions" with the most dastardly and virulently predatory hate groups in this country. Newscasters like Lou Dobbs of CNN, Sean Hannity and Bill O'Reily of FOX NEWS among many, are skillfully using their privileged positions in these media organizations to hammer in and stir salt into the open wounds of hatred, unremittingly using fear and misinformation which have instigated horrible hate crimes against immigrants, especially Latinos.
Tattooed Skinheads and the Ku Klux Klansmen wielding pistols and hi-tech rifles are running around the country vomiting hateful rhetoric...proclaiming imminent war on the "invaders," poisoning the minds of well-meaning citizens.
Reminiscent of the slavery days, Hispanics are being portrayed as "lower forms of life"'it is not too long ago that this was said of blacks and earlier immigrants.
Commentators and Journalists have mindlessly manipulated news items on immigration, repeatedly narrating the most desperate and extreme talking points, in order to inflate their rankings in the Nielsen sweepstakes, a crucial yard stick in generating ad revenues.
Racism in America is on the upsurge and the predatory and ferrety instincts of the bigoted in this country are as sharp as ever. Racism never went away as we all know; we beat it down into a hiding hole, now the intolerant half of this nation is using the "illegal immigration issue" to rear their ugly heads out of their foxholes.
One issue stands clear - no one want's terrorists in this land and the majority favor an orderly immigration itinerary, but a despicable few have cashed in on this issue repeatedly to transport their agenda of hate and intolerance.
Because of the reckless war policies instituted by the Bush administration, fewer Americans want to join the military, resulting in missed recruiting quotas ...now being filled with hate-filled recruits.
It has been widely reported that white supremacists have infiltrated the military forces because admission standards have had to be lowered due to low recruit turnouts, ostensibly to defend the "homeland" from "foreign invaders."
"Cazamigrantes" (A conglomeration of hate filled immigrant hunters) like the "Minute Men" are on the march and "chapters" are spreading like wild fire across the country igniting more hate.
These in my humble opinion are future "Home Grown Terrorists." The military training they take delivery of today will be used against their "targets of hate" in the future, and they hate almost anything and anybody. How frightening!
The War in Iraq
In his recent statement, Mr. Lamont elucidates five critical observations:
1. With a force of 132,000 troops and a cost of $8 billion per month, we are currently refereeing a civil war in Iraq with no signs of progress and no credible exit strategy.
2. Our force readiness to face another threat elsewhere in the world has been diminished because of our preoccupation with Iraq.
3. Both anger at America around the world and the number of terrorists seeking to do us harm have increased. We are not stronger and safer because of Iraq; just the opposite is unfortunately true.
4. Potential attacks like the one that appears to have been foiled today are clear and present dangers. Al-Qaeda continues to have operational capacity to threaten air traffic around the world, including into and out of the United States.
5. We need to focus on our security, on apprehending Osama bin Laden and other terrorist leaders and on building a credible, effective foreign policy with our allies.
Osama bin Laden has not been caught, yet Vice President Dick Cheney continues to daydream about "weapons of mass destruction" in Iraq, a country that for all practical purposes is in the middle of a brutal civil war, a civil war emanating from politics of greed and deceit...sinister agendas that have absolutely nothing to do with Osama bin Laden and the war on terror. Meanwhile a hapless Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and an irritating and arrogant Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld continue to strut around like castrated peacocks.
Sure, Saddam Hussein was a brutal dictator but what did this have to do with the 9-11? Shouldn't all efforts have been invested in Afghanistan where Osama bin Laden still perches, taunting America to "pee-pee" fits!
The American people need to wake up
America is a great nation, a nation that must learn from what it endured in the past. A nation that must review its bloody racial history and not repeat the same mistakes. A nation that must vet incompetence when electing leaders of high office, for you voted in "third world" incompetence in 2000 and again in 2004.
"The chain reaction of evil -- hate begetting hate, wars producing more wars -- must be broken, or we shall be plunged into the dark abyss of annihilation," -- Martin Luther King Jr. said.
I sincerely hope that America will recuperate and survive the immense moral and emotional damage that has been inflicted upon it over the last six years.
I rest my case.
