Revolution! Revolution! Revolution!

 

Malcolm X quotes

 

 

It would seem that TPTB want to see some sort of re-action from ‘We The People’. Will it be peaceful or will it be violent? I do believe, THEY have decided the course that the next revolution will take. And this is just a little poem to get you in the mood.

The Revolution IS Coming!

How can I be content if my brother is in pain?
I would not turn my back if I saw my sister slain.

The world has had enough and the rich should lose their head.
Those who try and stop us will lie among the dead.

Peaceful, we have tried and it only got us where?
Poor, homeless or dead, they don’t really care.

No corner of the globe should hide these thieves and liars.
Light a billion torches, fry their spying wires.

Rest is for the dead and we have no time to waste.
They must know real fear, they must have a taste.

They have played their hand and took our rights away.
Do you think we’ll get them back if only we will pray?

Stand strong and hold your ground for they cannot kill us all.
Tear down the corporate sign and breach the outer wall.

Progress must be made in one form or another.
The protests, they have squashed and dissent, they try and smother.

Hate has been their tool and we must overcome.
They treat us just like dirt and they tell us we are scum.

You should not run, you should not hide for the stakes are just too high.
And when they come for you, will you fight or will you die?

There comes a time in everyones life when they must make a choice. We have been headed in this direction for some time. Those who initiated this hellish nightmare that is going down have been preparing for this while we were distracted. And now that what is in store for us can no longer be denied, you have a choice to make. You can either go out obediently and quietly or you can make a noise before you go out. Which is it going to be? They are hoping that we will continue to acquiesce to getting our asses handed to us. They are thinking that we have, for too long, been lulled into apathy and complacency and in addition to this, they have been destroying us little by little and weakening our bodies by filling us with poisonous toxins. This was intentional. For those of you who can remember a few decades back, you can remember a time when obesity was not as prevalent as it is today. And we did not need Facebook or Twitter to help us remember what we saw with our very own eyes because back in my day, people actually talked face-to-face with one another. There were no smartphones, nor was there Skype and the like. And I for one, can remember when food tasted good and was good for you, not like this garbage that we spend much more on than we used to and quality is non-existent.

As long as we are alive, we can change things. The obstacles may seem insurmountable but the alternative is not to be endured. If we don’t take a stand, we never will. Anything that comes too easily is not worth having and when you have given something your all and you see the results, you appreciate it more. Just something to think about as you look around and wonder what in the hell happened? This is not how we are supposed to live. Too many people are hooked on drugs to escape the pain of reality and this just should not be. Too many people are imprisoned today and this was not always the case. But you must understand that psychopathic monsters have been in control of us for far too long and it is time to show them that we will not continue to aid in our demise. We will resist. That is why those worms militarized AmeriKKKa and terrorized the rest of the world into submission. They expect the status quo to remain; they expect to continue their reign of terror, brutality, destruction and death.

Those of you who have family members in police departments all across AmeriKKKa, you should be telling your daddy or your spouse or your brother, cousin, uncle, aunt or sister, if they are a cop, that you will be facing them the next time another cop kills an innocent man, woman or child. You should tell them that just because they lost their humanity, it does not mean that you have lost yours. And for those of you who have loved ones in the military, ask them if they would appreciate some general commanding them to send a drone to kill you. Ask them if they were so ordered, would they murder you for standing up to tyranny, racism, brutality and war crimes. You may not want to hear the answer, but you should know all the same, if you don’t already.

We could all play a part to ensure a better future for us all. Most of us have children and we want our children to have a future. They will not if we continue to remain hypnotized by those who would continue to control us if we allow them to. Look into the face of your child. Go outside and watch the children playing together. We used to do that. We were not always looking at skin color. I know I didn’t. When I was a child, I did not play with someone based solely on their skin color, I played with them because they were human, just like me. Just like us all! Why did we, collectively, move away from each other; physically, spiritually and emotionally? If you can answer that question, honestly, then that is a start!

Put Down Those Weapons Of War!

weapons of war

You may be able to kill the messenger,
but his message will live on.
When the masses finally awaken,
there will be a brand new dawn.

For some, hope has all but fled.
They see no way to win.
Victory looks too far away
and fear is in the hearts of men.

Throw off your yoke of oppression.
Those who keep you towing the line
are the ones who send you off to war
while they sit back and wine and dine.

Take a minute and ask yourself,
“What the hell am I fighting for?”
Now, look into your baby’s eyes
and put down those weapons of war!

If you cannot kill your daughter or your son, then how can you kill someone elses? The same love and pride that you feel when you look at your own children, another mother and father across the seas is looking at their children in the exact same way. They just speak a different language when they tell their children how much they love them. Killing someone elses child should be just like killing your own. You couldn’t do it! Again, let the warhawks and the warmongers fight their own battles. You have no dog in that fight!

Weep For The Children!

tears I cry

Weep for the children
who are born into this world;
a world of seething hatred,
aimed at this poor little boy and girl.

You say you want someone to love
and you need an innocent child.
Take a look at the world around you.
What was paradise is now, defiled.

Think again about what you want
and what it is you are about to do.
You are pounded by the force of hate.
Is this what you want for your child too?

This is not about Planned Parenthood
and abortion was not on my mind.
I just see that innocence is doomed,
thanks to the evil that is mankind.

I am not trying to tell anyone what to do. I am merely stating that if it were up to me, I could not bring an innocent child into this mess. I just could not. And seriously, take a look around. What do you see? Wars, hatred, ignorance, bigotry, genocide, murder, lust, STDs, avarice, homelessness, mass incarceration, mass water shut-offs, poisoned water, millions of refugees, radiated oceans, dying sea life, climate change, rising seas; a world teetering on the brink of war. How in the ‘world’ could I ever think of bringing a child into this? I weep for the children.

I Miss The Days When Men Were Men

Nasty motherfuckers!

Nasty motherfuckers!

I miss the days when men were men
but the tables have been turned.
A man is now so feminine,
he wants a bra some woman burned.

Feminine is now quite masculine.
What a topsy-turvy world.
Just thinking of this perversion
only makes me want to hurl.

The claim is that they fought
for civil rights for gays.
And that Blacks should be quite happy
giving the high court’s ruling, praise.

Not so fast, this shit ain’t cute.
Being gay is an orientation.
It is not a civil right
to display your aberration.

What sex act you perform
should not be granted such distinction.
Nor be held up as a victory.
It only leads to man’s extinction.

You cannot procreate your seed
when it’s shoved inside a man.
Nor can a woman bear a child
by engaging in sex with Ann.

You’re on the road to hell,
you deviant queers and freaks.
And as you head for wedded blitz
know that your ass of sulfur reeks.

You nasty gay Black motherfuckers, what the hell is wrong with you? The Black man used to be a MAN and not a goddamn pussy. I understand the white man’s agenda is to emasculate you, but why do you buy into that shit? You did not come from wimps. Back in my heyday, this was not a goddamn epidemic. Black men were MEN. They weren’t the punk ass bitches that are crawling and slithering around emulating the white ‘man’s’ ways. Yeah, whites have always been on some perverted shit, but that wasn’t us. We did not assimilate as easily as you motherfuckers of today allow yourselves to be and quite obviously, having no problem doing so.

And Black lesbians, you are just as bad. You weren’t into pussy licking and you fucking know that. Now, everywhere I turn, you’re somewhere proclaiming your gayness and talking about rights. This gay shit has nothing whatsoever to do with the rights that Black people have been fighting for, for over 50 years in this hellhole. You are no sista of mine as I denounce the vile ass shit you do and don’t think for a minute that I am buying this fake ass shit that you are selling. You are not denied a goddamn thing because of your sexual preference. You have just joined in with the whites that have been proclaiming this to be a fight for civil rights when it is not about civil rights, it is about the fact of making perversion, legal.

So, all you motherfuckers out there that’s got a problem with pedophilia, get the fuck over it because now that Pandora’s Box has been opened, now that this can of worms has been opened, expect for every deviant piece of filth to crawl out of it and declare that it is a right to engage in sex acts with minors; that is a right to wed children, 9 years of age. What’s to stop this? Not a goddamn thing! Because if your perversion has been ruled, a protected right, then so must the perversion of a Catholic Priest. Why deny the Catholic Priests, their young boys to sodomize? It’s only a sex act and therefore, protected by the Supreme Court’s ruling. Next, the Catholic Priests should be requesting that they be allowed to marry the young boys that they sodomize. Ain’t a goddamn thing wrong with that because it’s ALL about sexual orientation and if a motherfucker is oriented in that way, then what’s the goddamn problem? There is none because perversion has been defined as a right. So, everybody is happy. Dude wants to marry his favorite sheep? Great! Let him! That is his sexual orientation and it is a protected right. Prepare the church for this dude and his new bride, the sheep’s, wedding. A woman wants to marry her dog? Fine! Prepare the church for her wedding with Fido! Let’s ALL have our sexual perversions, I mean…orientation declared, legal, enter into a contract, walk down the aisle and live happily ever after.

I Have Never Seen A Rainbow!

I have never seen a rainbow
nor have I ever smelled a rose.
My home was bombed so many times;
dust clouds my eyes and nose.

I have never held a puppy
nor have I ever played jump rope.
But I have dived for cover many times
and prayed and held onto hope.

I have hoped and prayed for peace
but war is all I’ve ever known.
I have cried so many times
since my father and mother are gone.

You, who are in the West!
Have you ever thought about me?
Do you know that I am human?
And that you made me a refugee?

When next you play with your children
and you bring them home a toy,
remember, I’ve never had a teddy bear
because I am not your little boy.

I know that these are only words
and that you can’t see my tears.
But I think that you should know
you’ve laid waste to my best years.

Written for all the little children of Iraq who have had their lives torn asunder thanks in part to bombs and drones and CIA trained insurgents that I paid for through my tax dollars. These children have been turned into orphaned refugees with nowhere to turn and yet, we here in America are having no problem shopping for teddy bears and puppies and other toys for our children. We can look up at the sky after a good cleansing rain and see a rainbow, but is that what the orphaned children of Iraq see? Do they have puppies and teddy bears to play with? And now Obama has signed for more U.S. soldiers to head over to Iraq since, according to him, he has no idea what to do about the shit that America got started over in Iraq. But are those of us in America paying for our victim-filled crime? Only with our tax dollars and still off to the mall, we go! We’ve got some teddy bears to buy!

We Continue With The Illusion!

delusional1

Ask yourself, “Why?”

Why am I not prepared to die

So that my children can be free

And not indentured like you and me?

Though we are paid to toil away

We can never take a holiday

The bills just pile up higher

Why don’t we light the fire

And burn our debt to ash

and watch the Wall Street crash?

Never mind, that ship has sailed

Because on our children, yes, we bailed.

They are simply not worth the stress

And so we put up with the mess,

For if we bow before our masters

And pay tithes to hypocrite pastors

We continue with the illusion

That freedom is not a delusion

And democracy is alive and well

and we hear the ringing of liberty’s bell.

No, death has come to our future

thanks to your apathetic and complacent stupor!

We Turn A Blind Eye!

 

eye

Drones strike nearby

Innocent children die

Widowed mothers cry

Missiles cross the sky

Our bloodlust, we satisfy

Treaties, we nullify

Israel, we gratify

Torture, we justify

The truth, we classify

Countries, we occupy

The innocent, we vilify

Murder, we glorify

The media prints the lie

Their bullshit, we gladly buy

The world, we terrify

We don’t question, “Why?”

Silently, we comply

We’ll eat our apple pie

on the fourth of this July

and drink and just get high

since freedom does not apply

And justice has no ally

We turn a blind eye

to the horrors,  we can’t deny.

Recognize yourself in this one? I am sure you do! Now, you can look away from the truth of this one if you want, but the shoe fits and you are wearing it; stupid, clueless Americans! And while I am at it, let me disabuse you of the notion that there is anything, ANYTHING at all exceptional about you, ’cause there ain’t! I do realize that since there is nothing but air in the space between your ears, you’re finding this hard to absorb. Let me make it more clear for you. You are a stupid, useless fuck! You think the world revolves around you because you are an American. Newsfuckingflash, it SO doesn’t and you are simply a piece of shit that just refuses to get flushed down the goddamn toilet despite my many attempts to flush the lot of you, down! You ain’t getting flushed for lack of my trying and that is for damn sure!

 

PESTILENCE Is Already Here!

_h353_w628_m6_otrue_lfalse

“The Homeland Security agency responsible for removing immigrants who are in the country illegally will run out of money by mid-August unless Congress approves President Barack Obama’s emergency request for $3.7 billion to help deal with a flood of child immigrants crossing the border illegally without their parents, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson says.”

http://news.msn.com/us/obama-official-says-immigrant-kids-draining-funds

Well, well, well, ain’t that a bitch? “In this country illegally, eh?” Who the hell ain’t here illegally? Unless your goddamn ass is one of the indigenous peoples of America, your ass is here, illegally. Unfortunately, the Indians’ immigration policy was largely ignored as once the Indians realized that the European settlers were hell bent on relieving them of their land, they attempted to put a deportation system of their own into the works, but their deportation system was no match against their conquerors.

And so now we come to this, who can stay and who must go. “You, yeah you! Over there, you stay but you, hell naw, now git! The Statue of Liberty ain’t talking about you! We don’t care how tired, how poor and how huddled you are, we got fucking standards, ya know and you don’t meet ’em, so git!”

That’s some real shit right there and we’re some real shits, we are because this nation is a nation of immigrants and don’t hand me no bullshit about how if they come here, legally then all is well and good because we’re ALL fucking here illegally. I don’t care if you were born here. Somebody in your family came here from elsewhere and most likely got off at Ellis Island and now you want to sit back and point fingers at the dirty, the tired and the poor who cross the border looking for a better way of life or to escape gangs, violence or political persecution. I understand that these are children whose parents have sent them over and that many have relatives who live in America. So, what’s the problem America? This here is the land of opportunity for all, ain’t it? We’ve got lady liberty shining her beacon to welcome ALL immigrants to the shores of America, don’t we? Well? We fucking do or we don’t! If that ain’t the goddamn truth, then fucking lady liberty needs to step the fuck up off her pedestal, why don’t she?

What’s coming beats ALL. I read a quote from some ignorant piece of shit about how the immigrant children from South America have brought PESTILENCE to the shores of Amerikkka! HUH? Say WHAT?!!!! The fucking PESTILENCE is already here motherfuckers! It’s called, VULTURE CAPITALISM! It’s called, INCOME INEQUALITY! It’s called the 1%! Millions of Americans are already suffering from a pestilence. So, clue your stupid ass in, why doncha? And as if that isn’t bad enough, it is my understanding that some of the child immigrants are from Guatemala. Now, do you knuckleheads recall the Guatemalan STD Study? Huh? Well? Of course you don’t want to recall that because that right there was a PESTILENCE that America visited on poor unsuspecting Guatemalans, oh ye christian hypocrites of fake ass faith!

U.S. scientists knew 1940s Guatemalan STD studies were unethical, panel finds

“U.S. government researchers who purposely infected unwitting subjects with sexually transmitted diseases in Guatemala in the 1940s.

At least 5,500 prisoners, mental patients, soldiers and children were drafted into the experiments, including at least 1,300 who were exposed to the sexually transmitted diseases syphilis, gonorrhea and chancroid, the commission reported. At least 83 subjects died.”

http://www.washingtonpost.com/national/health-science/us-scientists-knew-1940s-guatemalan-std-studies-were-unethical-panel-finds/2011/08/26/gIQA2CxLoJ_story.html

…and you want to talk about a goddamn pestilence crossing over into America when Amerikkka IS a goddamn pestilence! Always has been and always will be no matter who the fuck crosses over. Just ask the Indians, you know, those who never gave you permission to bring your worthless ass over here to begin with. Ask the Indians about who brought pestilence to them in the form of small pox blankets. Why doncha? Bunch of goddamn chicken shits, sitting somewhere in your cozy air conditioned penthouse most likely nursing your own goddamn pestilence that you got from some ‘high priced hooker’. You’ve got some damn nerve, spouting off at the mouth while you nurse your pestilence called, gonorrhea with the hounds of hell nipping at your heels, hell bound hypocrite that you are!

Amerikkkans seriously make me want to puke over the outrageousness of their hypocrisy. This nation was supposedly founded on the principle that “all men are created equal,” and yet slavery was rampant and the Indians were being indoctrinated into the heathen settler’s way of life after having had their land stolen from underneath them and now that the European heathens are at the helm of this lopsided sinking, stinking shithole barge, they now want to pick and choose who gets to cross into THEIR Amerikkka. You know what motherfuckers! Fuck You!

“Immigrants from Central America, bring whatever the hell you want to bring over here. Escape that Homeland Security shit and fuck up their goddamn day because you ain’t had time to board a boat and get processed at Ellis Island since you’re fleeing a goddamn war zone!”

Don’t Come Here!

src_adapt_480_low

Don’t come here tired and don’t come here poor!
You’re not to huddle beside the golden door.

It is not meant for you and it never will be
no matter how hard you try or how much plea.

You’re bringing pestilence into this land
and we’ve got more than we can stand.

Just ask the Indians why the white man won’t go.
He’s got it too good, their mortal foe.

Heads Up! I Am About To Go The Fuck Off! If You Have Delicate Sensibilities, Stop Reading!

63513953-50ee-4973-b7e5-15ba0835f8d3-460x276

On my most recent post, I mentioned this topic, but I did not delve into it. But I read something that consumed me with hate and rage!!

“Welcome to Detroit’s water war – in which upward of 150,000 customers, late on bills that have increased 119 percent in the last decade, are now threatened with shut-offs. Local activists estimate this could impact nearly half of Detroit’s mostly poor and black population – between 200,000 and 300,000 people.’

The situation in Detroit has gotten so bad that the United Nations was called to step in. This is not just a human rights issue, this is about racism and crimes against humanity, crimes against a certain ethnic group and since that is the case, where is the goddamn Federal Government in all of this? Why hasn’t Obama stepped in and laid down the goddamn law? Why hasn’t something been done to nip this shit in the bud? Why is this being allowed to happen? Because the majority of Detroit’s citizens are Black and therefore are of no account. Can I get anymore blunt than that? Hell yeah! And I intend to. Now fucking read this shit!

“The official rationale for the water shut-downs – the Detroit Water Department’s need to recoup millions – collapses on inspection. Detroit’s high-end golf club, the Red Wing’s hockey arena, the Ford football stadium, and more than half of the city’s commercial and industrial users are also owing – a sum totalling $30 million. But no contractors have showed up on their doorstep.”

I fucking wonder why! Like hell I do, they’re not some poor Black person who has lost their job and therefore, their ability to pay their goddamn water bill. What poor Black person is a member of Detroit’s high-end golf club? And how in the world does a high-end golf club owe on a water bill in the first goddamn place? Oh, that’s right! Because it can, being high-end and all! And isn’t that just something? The hockey arena owes, the football stadium owes and more commercial and industrial water users owe and ain’t a goddamn city official standing in the doorway demanding immediate payment and if not receiving it, shutting the fucking water off. But if you’re Black, there are no exceptions, no delays, no consideration for your children, your fucking water’s getting shut off.

Water is a necessity of life. We ALL need water to survive. Black people survive off of the same things that white people do. We are not sub-human. We are not three-fifths of a person. We are 100% goddamn human and yet, we are treated like we are America’s mortal enemy. I am fucking sick and goddamn tired of it! I cannot imagine what it must be like to be a child in Detroit right now. I cannot imagine what a little Black child must feel after reading about the fact that Black people all across Detroit are getting their water shut-off and yet fancy, smancy clubs, arenas and stadiums that owe on water bills still have running water. What does that say to that poor child? It says to them that you are of not account. You are a thing. You’re of no consequence. It destroys their sense of self worth. It destroys their innocence. It takes something from them that they may never be able to get back; dignity, strength, resilience, hope. And as if this is not bad enough. Keep reading!

“There is one other way the situation in Detroit would never have come to pass: if this was a city predominantly of white people instead of black. Too much of America views Detroit like the policemen viewed Charity – as deviant, inferior and beyond repair. This racism has meant decades of block-busting, red-lining, police brutality and the legislative punishment of the city. And it has done something more insidious: it has written off the people of Detroit.”

“The attitude was expressed in a recent statement of L Brooks Patterson, the elected executive of the mostly white Detroit suburb of Oakland: “I made a prediction a long time ago, and it’s come to pass. I said, ‘What we’re going to do is turn Detroit into an Indian reservation, where we herd all the Indians into the city, build a fence around it, and then throw in the blankets and corn.'”

Of course the blankets would be infected with something much like the smallpox blankets and the corn would be poisonous and addictive like crack. No doubt about that shit! And then people have the nerve to wonder how hate is propagated. Just read the above two paragraphs and that about sums it up. What you see here is why what is happening in Detroit is going to spread. It will spread to your white bread world and I for one, cannot wait. I cannot wait for the shit to hit the fan in a suburb near you. In fact, I cannot wait until the shit storm that is due hits you. I hope that you will know worse than what those poor little Black children in Detroit know. I hope that when the shit hits you, it never lets up. I hope that for those of you who believe in god and if you call on him that he turns his back and spits. I hope that you only know trouble, strife, hunger, pain, heartache and that the evil that is what holds you together will soon collapse your ass and I mean every goddamn word that I have typed. No more Miss Fucking Nice! Every goddamn so-called Black city in America is being gutted, torn to pieces, pissed on, put on lockdown, gentrified, sold to the highest bidder. And the comments from the whites on social media about those cities are on par with what is being done to them. I fucking hope like hell that all you nasty ass white motherfuckers end up in some form of hell. It would still be too good for the likes of you! And don’t fucking ‘like’ this! This ain’t about getting ‘likes’. These are MY people who are getting shitted on, left and right. It ain’t about you, white motherfuckers! It’s about what you’re doing to MY people. And don’t come all up in here talking some shit about what you understand. You don’t understand a goddamn thing, white motherfuckers ’cause you ain’t Black! It is war! Ain’t no goddamn peace!!!!

http://www.theguardian.com/environment/true-north/2014/jun/25/detroits-water-war-a-tap-shut-off-that-could-impact-300000-people

Oh, you poor Black Child In Detroit!

Oh, you poor Black child in Detroit,
your mama must so be distraught.
The water that you need to survive
and to keep you hydrated and alive
in the sweltering heat of the day
was shut off because your mama couldn’t pay.

Oh, you poor Black child in Detroit,
your mama must be overwrought.
You can’t brush your teeth and take a bath
because you can’t escape the white man’s wrath.
They can never take enough from you.
And at you, so much hate they will spew.

Oh, you poor Black child in Detroit,
you don’t know the battles that were fought
by the leaders of the Civil Rights Movement
and when I look around, there is no improvement
when your cries still fall on deaf ears
and now to wash, you must use your own tears.

Oh, you poor Black child in Detroit,
those who came before you were bought.
Sweet child, you’re not the one to blame.
They were stolen by those who had no shame.
Your eyes have been awakened now to hate
and I wish that I could say, “I can’t relate!”
