Know Your Enemy!

 

 

 

Malcolm X2

They make the rules for you to obey.
They hold the cards because they’ve got it that way.

They don’t play fair and they never will.
They break their own rules, but it’s you they kill.

They gave you a number and they gave you a name.
They sold your body and they did it without shame.

They made you a slave for you to clean up their mess.
They destroy your home and they say its progress.

They take your culture and they turn a profit.
They have you bowing and worshiping their prophet.

They try to steal everything you are.
They rule over you and they go too far.

They judge you and they say that’s fair.
They fill your days and your nights with despair.

They will always be your enemy number one.
They hate the beautiful dark ones kissed by the sun.

Malcolm X knew who the enemy was and he was killed for it. Yes, I know, the Nation of Islam killed Malcolm X and if anyone believes that the U.S. government had no hand in it, then believe this; there are no guns in Texas! Malcolm X was called many things; radical, racist, an angry militant separatist, but despite all of this, he was always right on point. The truth, he told, got him assassinated. The truth gets you buried and if that means, to be set free, then it is a most fucked up way to be set free!

Sigh, here is the latest evidence of who OUR enemy is!

White SC officer charged with murder in black man’s death

Dramatic video that shows a white South Carolina police officer shooting a fleeing black man after a traffic stop has led authorities to file a murder charge against the officer amid public outrage over a series of deaths of unarmed black men at the hands of law enforcement agents.

The video shows Scott falling after the shots and then the officer slowly walking toward the man and ordering him to put his hands behind his back. When Scott doesn’t move, Slager pulls his arms back and cuffs his hands. Then he walks briskly back to where he fired the shots, picks up an object, and returns the 30 feet or so back to Scott before dropping the object by Scott’s feet, the video shows.

Walter Scott may have tried to run from the officer because he owed child support, which can lead to jail time in South Carolina until it is paid, Stewart said. Scott had four children, was engaged

We’re Already Dead!

Do you see what I see?
Can you believe your eyes?
Take the blinders off
and don’t believe the lies.

We are living in a shithole
that needs to be destroyed.
Gather the world’s forces
let your weapons be deployed.

We’re already dead,
so get on with the show.
Don’t stop until it’s over,
destroy your mortal foe.

A Government Of War And Terror!

crimes-450x478

The next time you find yourself on a goddamn airplane and you’re looking askance at someone who appears to look like he or she is from the Middle East, you best look askance at that American soldier who is sitting in the seat right next to you. He or she is the one most likely to get themselves in the news for going the fuck off on some post traumatic stress shit from endless deployments and for killing people who’ve done not a goddamn thing wrong to them.

We are busy being pointed towards a made-up enemy by the worthless warmongering shits that’s got three-fourths of the United Snakes of America hating all up and down on the people of the Middle East that we’ve been fucking over for decades past and present. And then you wonder why somebody from the Middle East should EVER want to fuck us up? You can thank your goddamn terrorist organization called the United States government for that shit since they are hell bent on terrorizing the whole goddamn world, especially the Middle East.

The CIA is as I type this, fostering hate all over the world and CIA operatives are training rebels to shit stir and are making moves to topple democratically elected leaders of other nations while we are being made to look elsewhere with finger pointing government officials telling us who our enemy is when if indeed they are our enemy, they were made so by the useless fucks we elect and those they represent, the rich warmongers who get their fucking jollies off on destruction, chaos, calamity and death and who are laughing all the way to the goddamn bank.

It is no accident that the shit that’s going down in Iraq is all over the news all of a sudden. We had heard nothing out of Iraq for quite some time even though things were not exactly kosher there. There were suicide bombings almost daily and a shitload of other hellish nightmare acts that has riddled that country since America’s filthy paws swiped the hell out of Iraq, time and time again.

Don’t you sit your fat American ass down on a goddamn plush ass couch and point at an Iraqi citizen and declare them to be our mortal enemy. Remind your stupid ass that since 1991, America has aided and abetted in the killing of over a million innocent people in Iraq. Remember the lies that were told to get American troops sent into Iraq. Remember the reasoning behind American troops remaining in Iraq long after the lies had come to light. Remember all the billions that American contractors made in Iraq. Think of the wasted trillion of our tax dollars all over a lie that Bush thought was fucking funny. Yeah, our elected officials have always been all heart, honest and full of integrity and if you believe that load of horseshit, then believe this, we ain’t got a goddamn thing to do with the chaos that is now loaded down in Iraq. We fucking start shit because of our fucked up agenda and dependence on foreign oil and because we can’t fucking stop coveting what some other country has because this one has gone to shit and ain’t no goddamn body trying to fix the issues in America. Bridges falling into rivers, drinking water tainted with every toxin you could name. Trains are steadily derailing with crude oil spilling into lakes and streams and drinking water. Electric grids are antiquated and failing. Droughts are causing entire towns to turn into ghost towns and yet, we need the military to go back into Iraq(like we fucking ever really left)because we need to help stabilize a country that WE fucking destabilized. We make so much goddamn sense and if you can’t sense the sarcasm, then hit yourself upside the fucking head to get the brain cells moving.

You want to feel safe, do you? And you think that the reason you don’t feel safe is because of some Mid East threat coming here? Feel threatened motherfuckers because it’s YOUR fucking American government that would cause a goddamn calamity to come to America. Your filthy ass government is hell bent on trying to cause some hellacious shit to be unleashed in America because then they can again point the finger at some innocent people and unleash hell on them. We are already of no account because we don’t whimper at all when getting radiated to board an airplane. We don’t whimper at all at the fact that every keystroke we type is headed straight to spy central. We don’t whimper at all that we can be taken out of our homes on some bullshit and be indefinitely detained without counsel and without being charged with a crime. We simply believe in the goodness of our government. Are you fucking kidding me? Your government is your mortal enemy! Get a goddamn clue, clueless motherfuckers and stop with the lame brain nonsense that your government would do you no harm and start thinking for yourselves. You’re busy looking around for the enemy and the enemy is every single goddamn lying, corporate-owned whored out politician. Not a one of those evil useless motherfuckers has your interest at heart. It’s all about money and power. You ain’t got it peons and so therefore, you are useless and insignificant. They’ve bigger fish to fry because your ass is already toast and don’t they know it.

America ain’t got long before it will be replaced as the world’s top dog. The shits that run this stinking, sinking shithole barge know this and they are in a last desperate ditch struggle before they go down for good and guess what! They’re taking you down with them. But remember, you were warned but you just couldn’t be bothered because you didn’t want to know. Just wait, you ain’t seen nothing yet. When the shit hits the fan, you’ll turn on your own mother and that’s a fact!

Those people in the Middle East were never your enemy. You were told that by your government and because you didn’t want to believe the obvious, you chose to take the easy way out. Well, it ain’t gonna be easy much longer. The people of Iraq ain’t gonna be the only ones suffering, tremendously! A hard row to hoe is coming to America. “So look lively there and all! Think not of what you had, into that gutter, won’t you crawl?” And crawl, you will; useless ass, clueless, hypnotized, brain dead Americanos…and remember to ‘look lively’ when you’re crawling!

Memorial Day!

memorial-day-cost

Men and women died for those who hoard the wealth.
And that is why this weekend, we celebrate their death.

Eat your hotdogs, hamburgers, steak and baked beans
And pretend that you don’t know what war really means.

Display the stars and stripes and lay a wreath on a grave.
Our soldiers fought the enemy, oh they were so brave.

They sacrificed their lives for the freedoms we enjoy.
The enemy just won’t die, there’s always someone to destroy.

We celebrate the dead who need not have died.
We gorge ourselves on hate, intolerance and pride.

If the dead could speak to us, we’d not celebrate this day.
They’d question why a death in vain deserves a holiday.

Soldiers, keep fighting the wars started by the rich. Maybe one day, they’ll hand you more than $20,000 a year, food stamps and a flag to drape over your coffin. Yes, keep fighting and keep hoping for more and meanwhile, we’ll celebrate your sacrifice on Memorial Day. We’ll eat a hotdog in anticipation of ‘in loving memory’ of you because it’s only a matter of time before you’re in a flag draped box.

What Freedom?

soldier saluting

So, you want to fight FOR your country. Why? You want to fight for your country because you’re protecting freedom. Isn’t that right? You want to fight for your country because your country will take care of you and your family while you fight for your country. Isn’t that how it goes? You can’t find a job and so you don a military uniform, grab a weapon and defend America against what, an enemy that is threatening the freedom of Americans? Let me clue you in on something, Americans have never known what freedom is.

First of all, have you taken a good look around lately at what America is descending into? America is descending into a military state. Americans no longer have any rights, much less a goddamn hint of freedom. What you claim to be defending by fighting for never existed. You’re fighting and you don’t even know why. To those who start the wars and conflicts that you are sent into to fight, you are nothing. You are expendable. You are cannon fodder and even you don’t have any rights. You don’t even have the right to see war crimes committed and speak out against them because if you do, you’ll be imprisoned, just ask Chelsea Manning about rights and freedom. Is this the America that you are fighting for, an America that claims to stand for freedom? That shit has always been bullshit and we ALL know that. When the founding fathers sat down and penned the Declaration of Independence, there was no freedom for all. There was no “we hold these truths to be self-evident that ALL men are created equal…endowed with certain unalienable rights.” Many of the founding fathers owned slaves and even though American history has been whitewashed and fucked with, we ALL know that the slaves were not included in any ‘freedom for all’ bullshit. We know that hypocrites stole this country from the original inhabitants, the indigenous peoples. The Indians were also excluded from that ‘freedom for all’, bullshit and don’t you know it!

Now, fast forward to today and tell me, what has changed? The game is still the same, only the names of the hypocrites have changed. You are fighting for a country that never intended to stand for freedom for all. That is just a mere word to give you a false sense of patriotism and to get you to fight for some ‘freedom’ bullshit that never was and never will be. You are fighting for a cause that NEVER WAS. There was never any intention of America standing for freedom for all, just a select few. And guess what? You’re not included in that select few, just as I’m not. But the difference is that I’ve always known this and you have been fooled into believing that you were one of the chosen, the few, the proud, the military. Oh, didn’t that just make you feel so damn good? When you stepped out in that uniform, you didn’t see it, but I did. Your uniform had ‘SUCKER!’ written all over it and I bet you also failed to see the ‘bull’s-eye’ that was located right in the center of your forehead. You are nothing more than a hired gun and a poorly paid hired gun at that. It’s just a ‘job’ to you. It’s not personal. But there, you are wrong because it is extremely personal when you kill someone who has done not a goddamn thing to you. It is extremely personal to that man, woman and child that you murdered in THEIR country, not YOURS. You didn’t even have a right to be there. What about their freedom? Freedom ain’t meant just for you. They were fighting you because you were infringing on THEIR freedom by your very unwelcome presence in their country. You did not have a reason to shoot not one single person in Iraq. You had no goddamn reason to shoot one single person in Afghanistan and guess what? That’s on YOU! You chose to don that uniform, pick up that weapon and simply do as you’re told without question. Even if you knew it was wrong and you did know, you still went right ahead and pointed your weapon and fired and people who had done not a goddamn thing to you, died.

So let’s say that somehow, you make it back to America and what happens? Your family is grateful to have you home, the only thing is, you’re not all of a piece. You’re missing a limb and if you’re not missing a limb, your brain is fucked up. You can’t seem to function and the family is complaining that there ain’t enough food to eat and so what do you do? You sign up for public assistance and when that ain’t enough, the next thing you know, you’re all homeless. Now, you’re not worth shit to anyone, not to your country, not to your family and not to yourself. And you begin to ask yourself, “what was it all for?” And the answer ain’t pretty because the answer is that it was all for nothing. You killed someone, not for freedom, not for democracy, not for justice, not for human rights. You killed someone because the elite warmonger fucks just wanted to continue to line their pockets and the pockets of those who sent you into foreign lands to kill or be killed and they didn’t give a damn about you and they damn sure didn’t give a damn about your family or what happens to you if you can no longer perform. You’re a ‘has been’. You’re like a horse with a broken leg. They’d rather ‘put you down’ then continue to feed and house and clothe you because the warmongers only want you when you’re able to carry out your ‘duty’ of killing and when you’re no longer up to the job because your limbs are missing or your mind is fucked up beyond hope from witnessing some horrifying shit, you’re a liability. You’re no longer an asset, so then, you must get ta steppin’ and they don’t hardly care where you step nor whether you’ve got a leg left to stand on.

By all means, keep pretending that you are fighting for a country that stands for freedom for all and because you think that if you fight for your country, your country will fight for you. If that were the case, then why are so many veterans, homeless? How is your ‘freedom loving’ America fighting for your ass? Why are so many people incarcerated in America? How is ‘freedom’ working out for them when we incarcerate more people than all other developed countries, combined?

If America stands for freedom for all then why the need to kill to obtain that when no country has attacked America since the Pearl Harbor attack in 1941? If Americans are so free, then why must Americans get radiated in order to board an airplane? If Americans are so free, why are Americans spied on every single day by America’s NSA program? Are we all terrorists? If Americans are so free, why are people being detained without due process? If America is all about freedom, then why are innocent people killed by drone strikes all over the world? If America is all about freedom for all then why are military bases all over the world, to ensure freedom for everyone? You know better than that. How can you not fail to understand that the very threat to freedom is coming from you? Yeah, you….the one who is wielding the weapon that is meant to kill an enemy you never had. That is why that at the end of the day, when all is said and done, you will either go insane because you will finally understand that what you have been doing goes against the very idea of freedom and how freedom is born because freedom can never be propagated by using military force or you will become that which is what the warmongers champion, an empty, evil shell that may have once housed a human, but whose humanity has now, fled the building. You will have become freedom’s mortal enemy.

Put down your weapon and let the warmongers fight their own battles. See how many wars they start then. And remember this sad little fact; there are no homeless elite warmonger fucks, just homeless veterans, both male and female. There are no hungry elite warmonger fucks, but there are plenty of hungry veterans lining up at soup kitchens every single day. Remember that when you’re told that the only way to bring freedom to the world is by picking up a weapon. America doesn’t even know what freedom means because America never stood for freedom and it never will and when it comes to fighting for you, when you are no longer any use to the warmongers, you’re on your own.

Join The Movement!

globalization

When the parasites have sucked us dry and evil rules the day,

we’ll turn upon each other as the ‘Hunger Games’, we’ll play.

One by one, we’ll be picked off; the lords will slap their thigh.

The ruling class will drool as they watch the peasants die.

We need no drummer’s beat, this is no marching band.

No dress rehearsal needed, the final act is planned.

Before the day is done, will our numbers shrink or gain?

Or will the movement grow just like a spreading stain?

Fear is not our friend, it’s the enemy don’t you see?

They want us to give up, and never to be free.

Some have lost it all, they’re hollow-eyed and gaunt.

Others lie in graves; their spirit’s on the haunt.

Need we all succumb to the lords’ decree for us?

When they throw a hungry victim underneath another bus.

The battle will be long and there is no way to know

if we will be victorious in vanquishing our foe.

There soon will be no option as it all comes to a head.

Either we engage the enemy or we will join the dead.

The Price of Greed!

greedy

If Hell is where the devil dwells and Angels fear to tread.
Then we are all just zombies in the land of the dead.

Greed destroyed us all and led to our demise.
We turned our back on love, the poor we did despise.

Wars became the tool that led us to this end.
An enemy we made out of what was once a friend.

Who can say we’re good when evil we embraced?
The plaque of human kindness was brutally defaced.

Silently we strode to the chamber of our death.
No whisper did we utter, nor did we take a breath.

We marched in mindless fashion down into the grave.
Defeated without mercy, no white flag could we wave.

Heaven does not wait for us, no pearly gates we’ll see.
If only we had known, greed paid the exit fee.
