I Am Not A Shell Of A Human Lacking Humanity!

no humanity

Strong hands rest on gently rounded hips,
smooth dark skin and thick, full lips.
Tightly curled hair, my crowning glory;
a picture perfect, wordless story.

Sculpted features, carved by time,
upon my face, not one wrinkle or line.
Legs that stand firm to bear my weight,
and a Teflon coating that repels all hate.

Torn from Africa and brought to these shores,
compared and found lacking to pale-skinned whores.
Desire in the eyes of sickly white men,
with fetid breath and reeking of gin.

Sent to the fields and whipped every day,
trying to understand why I’m treated this way.
No hope of returning to the home that I loved.
I’m poked and prodded, pushed and shoved.

Stripped and sold and draped in chains,
told that I’m an animal and that I have no brains.
Am I a beast of burden or the white man’s slave?
To him, I am both until I’m lowered in my grave.

He will have to whip me, both day and night.
And still he’ll not crush me nor dim my light.
It glows from within and it will not die.
My bloodline will continue to multiply.

I will not worship his god; a deity of hate,
nor confine my soul to the white man’s fate.
That is not who I am and never will be,
I am not a shell of a human lacking humanity.

I absolutely refuse to bow down and worship the white man’s god! How can I worship that which produced filth that would enslave my ancestors and me, commit unspeakable atrocities against us and then have the unmitigated gall to then turn around and head inside a church to bow down and worship a so-called, god ‘of love’?You cannot have it both ways. Love cannot come from hate and whatever hatred is praying to, it is not a ‘god’ of love! You are being played! Stop playing the fool!

The ‘white’ man’s god is not a god of ‘love’ if it produced him, he who is filled with nothing but hate! Negro people, where is your capacity for critical thinking? How can you emulate the ‘white’ man’s ways when you know it doesn’t make any sense to follow him over the cliff? How can you know what he has done to your ancestors and is also doing to you and yet, you take up his habits, his beliefs, his justifications for why he does what he does and worship the same false idols? Are you insane? Because that would seem to be the case from where I sit. You dutifully bow your heads at the table and pray to a ‘god’ that produced hate, bigotry, racism, prejudice and a false sense of fake assed superiority designed to keep you in your place when that filth that has you believing that you are inferior is rotten to the core?

And yet, you still believe that evil personified is going to save you if only you will stand in line and vote for that which has been trying Its damned best to wipe you out of existence? Go ahead and continue playing the stooge for something that is less than an animal and is planning your genocide at all times!

Don’t Even Act Like You Don’t Know!

american history

It has come to my attention that some white folks are wondering why all of a sudden, they are seeing some shit that they have never seen before. Oh, really! I wonder why is that! Like fucking hell I do! You see, for hundreds of years, whites have been hell bent on making life as unpleasant and downright miserable and ugly for any and everybody that had a permanent tan of some sort. The whites have reduced the Indians, indigenous to America to less than a third of their initial population count that was up in the millions upon millions before the whites landed here and murdered the innocent Indians, confiscated their land and indoctrinated their children into the white’s culture AND then proceeded to inform anybody else that wanted to come here that they must first apply for citizenship when the whites NEVER applied to the Indians for citizenship, they just killed them. Shot them dead and then glorified the killing of these people with the likes of John Wayne and Glen Ford and Gregory Peck riding shotgun with a wagon train attempting to get those innocent ‘settlers’ into hostile Indian territory and oh how disturbing it was to view the wagon trains that were wiped out and see the pale ass scalps of the pale skins lying all about the goddamn ground. Oh, those horrid Indian savages! How could they? Yep! That’s whitey whites take on the history of this here shithole! Just ask fucking sick and twisted ass Hollywood!

Those savage Indians just could not be got along with and so the ‘christian’ whitey whites just had to do what was necessary to tame and subdue the original inhabitants of this land; subject them to torture, maim and kill them. Round the remaining Indians up and put them on reservations where the whites could keep an eye out for any Indians that may look cross-eyed due to their situation being what it was. Never mind, the savageness of the ‘christians’ who just wanted to live in peaceful bliss with those savage ass Indians who refused to share this land with the white peacekeepers. Every fucking body knows that whites have ALWAYS been ALL about the business of PEACE! Just ask those pesky savage Indians! Ask the poor Black slaves that got dragged over to this shithole once the whites figured out that the Indians were not going to build this shithole up for them! Ask the Black people over in Africa and the other Brown people over in other Middle Eastern countries that have had the whites on their asses since day fucking one! Ask them if they’ve ever known the whites to get their big ass boot up off their goddamn necks! Ask ’em how wonderful, benevolent and kind the white ‘christians’ have always been towards them.

And now, some white folks are wondering why they are just now seeing what the Black and Brown population of this here planet has known ever since they saw the first white foot set said foot on their motherfucking land. Some white folks are just SO fucking bewildered now that there are Youtube videos of eyewitness accounts of white motherfuckers fucking up the goddamn day of said Black and Brown bodies all across this godforsaken planet! Ain’t that just a bitch? They are fucking wondering what’s about to happen to their ass! What’s about to happen to your goddamn ignorant, clueless ass is what has been happening to every Black and Brown body that the whites have been fucking up for hundreds of goddamn years! That is what is fucking happening! And about goddamn time, I say! So read the damn writing on the wall and don’t even bother to prep for that shit ’cause you ain’t gonna have time for that shit! No indeed, you are not! Your turn has come! We’ve been dealing with this shit for, AGAIN, hundreds of goddamn years and you white motherfuckers that’s just waking up are all a’gog over what you are just now privileged to witness! How lucky you goddamn Rip Van Wrinkles have been!

Sit up and recognize that your nap is being disturbed and how! Now fucking suck on that because you don’t like having your bullshit nap disturbed over some Black bodies that’s getting torn to bits every goddamn day but if you continue to see military vehicles arrive in a suburb near you, why “what’s the goddamn problem, officer?! This here ain’t the fucking hood! We is white bread christian America, doncha know!!!” I hope their fucking boot that’s been planted squarely on our necks for centuries gets shoved up your white asses so goddamn far that the toe comes outta your fucking mouth! Now, how’s that for a fucking ‘christian’ attitude! Yeah! I know! I ain’t even close to being as rotten, vile, nasty, barbaric and shitty as the peace loving ‘christians’ are but I promise to continue to work on it and that’s for goddamn certain! And AGAIN! Suck on that!

On The Wicked Ways Of Man

Jesus

I came back as a homeless man

And you locked me in a cage

The guards beat me ferociously

My Father was consumed with rage.

 

When next He sent me back to you

I walked across desert sand

A drone was sent to kill me

And I was back in my Father’s hand.

 

I was sent once more to shed some light

On the wicked ways of man

You once again, paid me no heed

since I had the deepest tan.

 

No more will I come for you

Your sins have damned you all

And when you die, you’ll not come here

In hell on your knees, you’ll crawl.

 This one is for the Christians because you guys have just finished patting yourselves on your goddamn back  and screaming and yelling about how “He is risen!” etc., etc., and then got on with the business of hating on your foreign neighbors, got on with the business of playing fake ass do-gooders when you’re really taking all of the tithes that you bilk from the blind sheep and using it to purchase your fancy vehicles and take your grand vacations. I’ve watched as you beseeched the public for funds to feed the homeless, only to turn around and fill your pantries and freezers with the choicest meats and delicacies and gave to the poor and hungry, outdated shit and you smiled all day long over what your hypocritical ass was doing. Oh, you’ll get yours, indeed you will.

And if you are sitting somewhere expecting an announcement that Jesus has come back, are you serious? There will be no trumpet announcements and “Gather ye!” messages. Your biblical Jesus was poor and humble and walked the earth in a robe and if you truly believe that He will arrive driving a Cadillac Escalade with an Armani suit on, are you for real? You faithless shits wouldn’t know Jesus if he walked right through you. You wouldn’t even feel Him because you are dead inside. The only thing you care for is material shit and to see people who you think are your enemies, dead. You chase after ever more elusive highs because your sad and pathetic little world is really not doing it for you, is it? No, it’s not and that is why you have to deaden the awareness because you are not really living, you are just pretending because that is expected of you and you need stronger drugs and more alcohol to get you through the day because no one can know that you are not really as happy as you claim to be. But you won’t do what you need to do. You refuse to stop worshipping money and you just can’t stop being greedy, cold, callous, thoughtless and selfish. You pretend that you are not any of those things when in fact, you are all of them and so much more of the like.

If your Jesus did come back, what would He think of you? Yeah, I know and what’s more, so do you!

 

No One Dare Accost The Righteous!

religious drones

The pastor is at the pulpit
spouting out his lies,
while another child in Iraq,
from a drone strike, dies.

The priest blessed the altar,
while we dutifully bowed our heads.
And the drones rained down,
as American barbarity spreads.

The Reverend held the bible,
and he said, “Thou shall not kill!”
But the drone operator,
paid no heed to God’s own will.

A Rabbi reads the Torah,
but he never mentions drones.
He speaks about old Moses,
but not about what God condones.

Our Bishop looks so fine,
decked out in full regalia.
His lips don’t move at all,
about the drones that struck Algeria.

The Pope had much to say,
on how we should help the poor.
But never did he mention,
America’s thirst for war.

We pretend that we are good,
compassionate, loving and kind.
And our pious souls are pure,
but to the drone struck, we are blind.

The hypocrites gather faithfully,
and they pledge to love all men.
What you fail to understand,
is that ‘all men’ just means their kin.

No one dare accost the righteous.
There are no ghosts to haunt our nights.
Our days are spent in oblivion.
To the world, we are its knights.

Do you hear the keening wails
from those who mourn their dead?
And as they look towards the west,
you sleep soundly in your bed.

For what are they to you?
An enemy? Surely not.
You say your soul is pure,
but hell has saved your spot!

Those of you who think of yourselves as Christian, you really need to take a deep and introspective look inside your ‘heart’ and come to terms with the fact that you are nothing more than a hypocrite. You sit in your places of worship and you bow your head and half of you are not even listening to the word of your ‘God’ because if you were, you would not sit idly by and let this country that you live in continue to rain drones down on the heads of innocent people in foreign lands. You would not continue to believe that in order to keep your worthless ass safe, it is imperative that your government continue to kill people who have done no wrong.

The reason that I am directing this one to the so-called Christians is because you are the very people who go on and on about ‘love thy neighbor’ and ‘do unto others as you would have them do unto you’ and so much more that is actually quite meaningless to you. You don’t care about anyone except for those who are in your own little cocooned world. But the thing is see? Your religious books speak of a loving ‘God’ that loves ALL people including those that have been touted out as your enemy. Be that as it may, you are supposed to continue to love them despite what others say to the contrary because that is what is in your holy books. So then, that makes you a hypocrite and it also makes you ‘selective’ in who you love because if you can love your own child but ignore the death of another’s child just because he/she lived in a different part of the world, then what does that say for what is in your ‘heart’? Get real about ‘religion’ or quit bullshitting yourself because that is exactly what you are doing every single time you see a picture of a child that was killed by drones that you pay for and yet you just simply look away because after all, he was no ‘kin’ of yours. But according to your religious books, yes he/she WAS!! Think on that! Meditate on it! Consider it and stop lying to yourself that you are about the business of love because not only are you a liar, you’re a two-faced, fake ass, conscienceless liar. You’re not good. Nor are you pious. And don’t even think that a confession is going to save you because the one that you’re confessing to is going the same route as you. They too have their spot in hell saved for them, just as you do. So, again, think on that!

 

The Pope On Charlie Hebdo

The Pope

Pope on Charlie Hebdo: There are limits to freedom of expression when religion is insulted

Pope Francis said Thursday there are limits to freedom of expression, especially when it insults or ridicules someone’s faith.

“There are so many people who speak badly about religions or other religions, who make fun of them, who make a game out of the religions of others,” he said. “They are provocateurs. And what happens to them is what would happen to Dr. Gasparri if he says a curse word against my mother. There is a limit.”

http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/pope-on-charlie-hebdo-there-are-limits-to-freedom-of-expression-when-religion-is-insulted/ar-AA8cjxx

So there you have it folks, from the good Pope himself. Free speech is all very well and good, but for many, there is a limit; a line that can be crossed. Say the wrong thing, provoke me and you just might find yourself getting your eye poked out. Oh, you can say whatever you want but when you do, be prepared to accept the consequences when your free speech strikes a nerve in me. It doesn’t matter if it’s over religion, the right to bear arms, corporal punishment of your children, or whether or not gays should have the right to get married or even over abortion rights. Rile me up good and proper over something that I feel strongly about and if I’m crazy enough, then you just might find yourself staring down the barrel of one of my ‘right to bear arms’ arms. Yeah, it’s that fucking simple, stupid! If you didn’t know, now ya know!

So keep provoking people with your free speech and expect what happened to happen because what you don’t seem to realize is that if in France, I draw a cartoon depicting anti-Semitism, I’m going to jail. But that’s me expressing free speech, isn’t it? Well, isn’t it? What if I drew a cartoon of a Jewish person sitting at a table on Shabbat holding money in one hand and a fork in the other, looking hungrily at a suckling pig with an apple in its mouth? Or better yet, say that the ‘Holocaust’ didn’t happen. Is that okay to do in France? Go on over there and find out! And then tweet us from jail about your experience. Why doncha? See if you can get 5 million tweets showing solidarity for your freedom of expression, a great big group hug from the world’s leaders and millions marching outside your jail cell protesting your arrest! Give it a go!

Don’t Make Fun Of My Religion!

shootings in France

Don’t make fun of my religion.
And if you do, I’ll shoot you dead.
Your free speech just pissed me off.
And now you lie in a sea of red.

Are your cartoons still funny?
Will they joke about your death?
My mission is accomplished.
You won’t take another breath.

To those who carry on,
this message is for you.
You can write whatever you want,
but you’ll pay when the bill comes due.

Charlie Hebdo: Gun attack on French magazine kills 12

Charlie Hebdo editor Stephane Charbonnier, 47, had received death threats in the past and was living under police protection.

So much for the ‘police protection’. And if Stephane Charbonnier had received death threats, then Charbonnier obviously did not mind finding himself dead since it was his choice to continue with what was causing him to receive the threats on his life. After the firebombing of his office, he reportedly said, “I’d rather die standing than live on my knees.” Brave words from the new martyr for free speech.

President Francois Hollande said there was no doubt it had been a terrorist attack “of exceptional barbarity”.

Sadly, barbaric attacks are the norm. Israel’s barbaric attacks against the Palestinian people. America’s barbaric attacks against Iraq’s people, Syria’s people, Yemen’s people, Afghanistan’s people, Pakistan’s people, Somalia’s people. Need I continue?

US President Barack Obama has condemned the “horrific shooting”, offering to provide any assistance needed “to help bring these terrorists to justice”.

And of course Obama chimes in. Wow! I wasn’t expecting that. Yes, Obama, provide your assistance “to help bring these terrorists to justice!” You know the ones, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, George W. Bush, Condoleezza Rice, Colin Powell and many, many others and don’t forget, you need to be brought to justice your damn self! So get the fuck in line!

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said: “It was a horrendous, unjustifiable and cold-blooded crime. It was also a direct assault on a cornerstone of democracy, on the media and on freedom of expression.”

Ahhh…Ban Ki-moon, where have you been? You’ve apparently missed out on quite a number of ‘horrendous, unjustifiable and cold-blooded crime(s)’. So many that I haven’t a clue as to where to begin. But a good place for you to start is by looking at the United States’ crimes against the rest of the world and include many of its citizens. Get real! This shit is worldwide! Our outrage is so last century. I mean, really? Aren’t we overdoing the ‘outrage’ thing a bit? It is so damn hypocritical! We ALL hate each other! Isn’t it obvious? How many countries are at peace, not plagued by economic woes, or disease, poverty, austerity? And if you can name two, is that a good thing? And this was a ‘cold-blooded’ crime as opposed to what? A ‘warm-blooded’ crime?

…About A Needle’s Eye…

eye of a needle

Who cares about a needle’s eye?
Eternal wealth is what I crave.
I do not care about the poor.
Let them lie in a pauper’s grave.

As you attend your service to god,
You believe in him, you say.
But if you had my wealth,
to whom would you still pray?

Cease with the pretense,
that religion is all about love.
You know there is no heaven,
and no deity from above.

Whenever sheep awaken,
a shepherd is produced,
To keep the sheep in line.
another coma is thus induced.

An awakened world is dangerous,
so we invented a fairytale,
to keep from you the fact,
that there really is no hell.

Could you be kept in line,
if you were wide awake,
and not afraid of any god,
that religion could ever make?

Matthew 19:24- Matthew 19:29
And Jesus said to His disciples, “Truly I say to you, it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. 24″Again I say to you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.”

25When the disciples heard this, they were very astonished and said, “Then who can be saved?”…

26And looking at them Jesus said to them, “With people this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”

27Then Peter said to Him, “Behold, we have left everything and followed You; what then will there be for us?

28And Jesus said to them, “Truly I say to you, that you who have followed Me, in the regeneration when the Son of Man will sit on His glorious throne, you also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.…
“And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or farms for My name’s sake, will receive many times as much, and will inherit eternal life.…

Now, ask yourself why the Wal-Mart Waltons are holding tight to their wealth. Ask yourself why politicians who avidly profess to being conservative Christians, continue to sell their ‘soul’ for money and tightly clinch to their chest, the bribes and kickbacks they get from lobbyists. Why are Bill and Linda Gates deemed such philanthropists but they are NOT so filled with love that they are concerned about ‘getting through the eye of the needle’ that Jesus Christ supposedly talked about?

Why do the rich seem to not concern themselves with a so-called ‘afterlife’? It is because they don’t BELIEVE in some unseen deity beyond the stars. They know better! But you’ve got to be kept in line, praying to god to fill your empty pantry so that you can feed your children while corporate executives swill the finest wines and eat the choicest of meats and delicacies. Why are they not concerned about getting to ‘heaven’, entering the Pearly Gates, meeting up with St. Peter, ‘getting through the eye of a needle’?

It is because this is all a lie! A big, gigantic lie to keep the sheep, docile with the hope that some deity is going to reward them for the hardships that they endure on this planet and not look at those who have hoarded all the wealth and rise up! Religion is a tool to control people and I’ve got to say, it IS working!

Wake up people! No one is going to rescue you or save you, but you! Stop allowing yourself to be controlled. The shit that the ‘poor man’s Pope adorns himself with could feed a small country in Africa, but you don’t see him refusing to wear it. If Jesus supposedly walked around, attired in a robe with a rope for a belt, is the Pope any better than ‘Jesus’? What is your bishop, reverend, pastor, rabbi driving? A horse and buggy or a Cadillac Escalade? Are they walking? Exactly!

Mike Brown Was At Fault!

state troopers in riot gear

The verdict is in, is any one of us surprised?
I could say that I was, but then I would have lied.

It was known all along what the outcome would be.
Darren Wilson was innocent, why else has he been free?

Mike Brown was at fault, he should never have been born.
Didn’t his mama know from birth that her child would be scorned?

Those who came before us paved the way to where we are.
But when you look around you, have we really come so far?

Our pastors pray to God to stop those bullets made of lead.
And yet Emmett, Eric, Trayvon, Mike and Amadou are still dead.

Yes, let us pray to God to stop the racists with a gun.
And while we are at it, ask God to tell us what we’ve done.

Were we brought here against our will, or did we climb into a boat,
and row from Africa’s shores when we read the white man’s note?

Did we come to build this land and expect not one thin dime?
We were whipped and chained and raped and now we’re doing time.

They’ve got a plan for us but let’s not go out peacefully.
If they want a goddamn war then arm yourselves for anarchy.

We were pissed on yet again, so fuck shit up tonight.
Or go back home, get on your knees and ask God to do what’s right.

We’ve been doing that shit for how long now, it’s getting kind ‘a old.
I’m tired of waiting on a miracle while Black bodies are getting cold.

God ain’t lying on these streets, our sons and daughters are.
We got no time to wait on God or just wish upon a star.

You say Mike Brown is with his God; his soul is now at peace.
If what you say is true, then to God, send the damn police!

http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/grand-jury-wont-indict-ferguson-cop-in-shooting/ar-BBfxHNc

No indictment for police officer in death of Michael Brown.

A grand jury has decided not to indict Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson in the death of Michael Brown, the unarmed, black 18-year-old whose fatal shooting sparked weeks of sometimes-violent protests.

St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Bob McCulloch announced the decision Monday evening. A grand jury of nine whites and three blacks had been meeting weekly since Aug. 20 to consider evidence.

At least nine votes would have been required to indict Wilson.

Pastors were planning a rally and prayer service later Monday evening at the West Side Missionary Baptist Church in St. Louis.

“There’s a lot of hurt, a lot of brokenness. There’s anger and frustration on every side,” said the Rev. Ronald Bobo Sr., the church’s pastor. “We need the hand of God to lead us and guide us.”

Expect No Mercy!

religion

As I look down at the scorch marks on my skin,
I realize that I’ve been to hell again.

The blood stains on my hands won’t wash away.
And when I go to sleep at night, I cannot pray.

On whom could I place the blame for what I’ve done?
From the horrors in my mind, where can I run?

My sins will be judged from high above.
And why from God should I expect undying love?

For I gave no love to enemies I never knew.
So, follow not in my footsteps, for if you do,
expect no mercy from the demons that pursue
your very soul for the innocent that you slew.

I get so damn tired of the hypocrites who claim to be christian and who are the most blood thirsty warmongering filth that ever crawled on this earth. They are a most intolerant bunch of heathens and who preach about God and love but only when it fits in with their agenda. When it comes right down to it, christians are the epitome of hypocrisy. How do you reconcile with yourself when you pick up a weapon and kill? How do you reconcile with yourself over how badly you treat others, those who are not of your faith or who are not of your complexion? How do you get to pick and choose who lives and who dies? Who made you gods? One of the ten commandments is THOU SHALL NOT KILL! So, since you believe in God, hell and the ten commandments, when you kill someone for whatever reason, where are you going? And if you say, “Why, through the pearly gates, for sure!” That makes you not only a flaming hypocrite, but a damn liar as well!

You’d better get all the enjoyment you can out of this life because after they plant your ass, scorched skin’ll be the least of your worries, that is, if you truly BELIEVE in your heaven, hell and god!

Iraq:Round III

...and a child says, "Get the hell out!"

…and a child says, “Get the hell out!”

Wow! We’ve been fucking up Iraq since the Gulf War

(2 August 1990 – 28 February 1991),
for operations leading to the build up of troops and defense of Saudi Arabia and Operation Desert Storm (17 January 1991 – 28 February 1991) was a war waged by coalition forces from 34 nations led by the United States against Iraq in response to Iraq’s invasion and annexation of Kuwait.

Thanks to George H. W. Bush, and coalition forces, we swept through and got shit done right and proper like. We fucking knew there’d be no need to EVER go back to Iraq ’cause it was just too easy the first time. But wait! What the fuck happened? Were we too cocky? Did Iraq attack the U.S. over Operation Desert Storm? Did we fucking go back and strike Iraq for legitimate reasons? What the hell happened? I thought Iraq was soundly defeated and sanctioned to pieces.

“The UN Security Council imposed comprehensive economic sanctions against Iraq on August 6, 1990, just after the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait. When the coalition war had ousted Iraq from Kuwait the following year, the Council did not lift the sanctions, keeping them in place as leverage to press for Iraqi disarmament and other goals. The sanctions remained in place thereafter, despite a harsh impact on innocent Iraqi civilians and an evident lack of pressure on Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein. A UN “Oil-for-Food Programme,” started in late 1997, offered some relief to Iraqis, but the humanitarian crisis continued.

The US and UK governments always made it clear that they would block any lifting or serious reforming of sanctions as long as Hussein remained in power. After more than twelve years of sanctions had passed, the US and the UK made war on Iraq again in March, 2003, sweeping away Hussein’s government. Soon after, Washington called for and obtained the lifting of sanctions, a step that gave the US occupation authority full control over Iraq’s oil sales and oil industry. This section covers a wide range of sanction issues, including the humanitarian impact, the Oil-for-Food Programme, criticisms of the sanctions and the debate that took place about their termination.”

Seriously? And we are supposed to be the ‘good guys’. I fucking find that hard to believe! The Americans and the British knew who would be adversely impacted by the sanctions. Both knew that sanctions would have a devastating impact on innocent Iraqis, especially children and they didn’t bat a goddamn eye over imposing them. We are worse than some filthy, foul ass shits. The deepest pit of hell would be considered a 5-star resort to the evil motherfuckers that initiated such a horror on innocent people! And as if that wasn’t bad enough, Iraq has to get attacked again over some bullshit! Operation Iraqi Freedom, now ain’t that a bitch!

Bush said he invaded Iraq “to disarm Iraq of weapons of mass destruction, to end Saddam Hussein’s support for terrorism, and to free the Iraqi people.” And I say, “Bullshit!!”

“Defense of the American people is primary among the goals and objectives of U.S. actions in Iraq,” Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld said. Again, I say, “Bullshit!!”

Those murdering bastards lied through their teeth and many of us knew it but we were considered to be unpatriotic for denouncing outright murder against innocent people who had suffered enough but who were about to get the hell that only America can unleash on them, unleashed. The people of Iraq were dirt poor, but the country was oil rich and we fucking need that goddamn oil, fucking oil gluts that we are! So, bring on the lies and the propaganda and the hype of freeing the Iraqi people from their evil dictator. They’ll thank us, they will. They want OUR brand of democracy shoved down their throats and it don’t really matter what the hell they want. They want what we want them to want and that’s the fucking way it’s gonna be. We’ll see to that. Come hell or high water. We’ll get those Iraqi people in line with OUR way of thinking. Now give ’em hell and they won’t know what hit ’em. It’s Operation Iraqi Freedom time! The American people are sheep, so fucking easily led, just shove patriotism down their oh so willing throats and we can get away with murder and make money, hand over fist while doing it. Of course, we’ll have those American sheeple in debt up past their eyeballs once we’ve thrown a trillion dollars in Iraq, all unfunded of course. Why, we’ll just print some more money. Who the fuck’ll notice and meanwhile Bush’s cronies and Dick Cheney’s cronies made billions. And the American sheeple? Those suckers ate up the lies and ran with them, just like the swine told them to do. Fucking stupid, clueless, useless motherfuckers that they are!

But goddamn, I digress! American forces and British forces and a couple of Australians said, “bombs away in Iraq! Bomb them into freedom! They want democracy and goddamn it that’s what they’re gonna get if we have to kill over a million Iraqis to get it done. It’ll all be worth it in the end!”

So, Iraq was bombed to smithereens, Saddam Hussein was captured and killed. American contractors saturated Iraq and began making billions. U.S. soldiers were used to train Iraqi security forces because somebody had better be protecting that goddamn oil, Black Gold, Iraq’s Prime. And so now we come to this, “Iraq appears on the brink of a violent ethno-sectarian divide between Sunnis, Shi’ite and Kurds that poses the greatest security risk that the country, and the region, has seen since the U.S. invaded in 2003.”

“The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, whose name alone indicates the breadth of its goals, has gained control of an estimated 10 percent of Iraq’s territory since its lightning strike on the northern city of Mosul earlier this week. The group’s leaders indicate that they want nothing less than complete domination of Iraq and the eradication of its Shi’ite majority, which they deem apostates. In a direct threat to Shi’ites, ISIS spokesman Abu Mohamad al-Adnani urged his fighters in a radio address on Thursday to march on the “filth-ridden” Shi’ite-city of Karbala and on “Najaf, the city of polytheism” — and home to Shi’ism’s major center of learning.”

Did the U.S. really think that it could stop centuries of hate between the different sectarian groups that has now spiralled out of control and since there is no dictator there to squash one group’s attempts to eradicate another, this violence will escalate to an all out civil war?

What is going down in Iraq is not much different from what went down in America. America erupted into civil war, pitting one group against another, states seceded from the union. One group squashed the other, the slaves were supposedly freed only to have one form of slavery exchanged for another. This group, that group, the other group. A group over here, a group over there, what the fuck? So, how then can we invade another country and then proceed to attempt to show them the way, the truth and the light towards a better tomorrow for everyone when they’ve got a group here, a group there, everywhere a group, group and each group wants to dominate the other? Hypocrisy becomes no one and most definitely NOT an entire nation, but America is synonymous with hypocrisy, always has been and always will be.

So now, we’re back in Iraq. Why? What could we possibly accomplish now that we’ve thus far been unable to accomplish? Every single time the U.S. has by way of military intervention, invaded Iraq; only death, destruction, corruption, hatred, blame and terrorism has been the outcome. The so-called militant groups that have taken over key cities have the use of weapons and vehicles because the U.S. left them behind for the Iraqi security forces to use to enforce stability in Iraq. Gotta take care of that goddamn oil! And capitalism needs expansion. We have armed the ‘rebels’ and made a bad situation, worse. American tax dollars are funding the chaos that is now ongoing in Iraq. Once again, we have the blood of an entire country on our hands and everywhere you turn, veterans are bemoaning their sacrifice, wondering why the hell they were ever there. You enlisted, now get over it. You contributed to that shit and now it’s not about you. You made a choice to enlist and get shipped out so don’t now turn around and wail and whine about your “in vain sacrifice.” It just doesn’t cut any ice now. Shut up about it and go seek help at the VA or better yet, call Obama so that he can tell you to “go fuck yourself!” And remember,

O beautiful for heroes proved In liberating strife,
Who more than self their country loved,
And mercy more than life!
America! America! May God thy gold refine
Till all success be nobleness,
And ev’ry gain divine!

O Beautiful for patriot dream
That sees beyond the years
Thine alabaster cities gleam,
Undimmed by human tears!
America! America! God shed His grace on thee,
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea!

So, fucking pray to God to shed his grace on thee; oh hero, oh patriot, oh liberator! Thanks to America, ain’t every goddamn body feeling free from sea to fucked up sea??!!! Like hell!

Update: The sectarian violence might not be real. It may indeed be a fabrication, another lie. According to one of my readers, the different sects have been getting along in Iraq for centuries unlike what has been stated by me in this essay. So hell! I don’t fucking know what’s real anymore. I’m going to have to pinch my own ass to make sure its real and not a hologram, goddamn! Shall we read between the lies and propaganda especially since we already know that big lies have been spread about Iraq before and they certainly have no problem continuing down that road. But whatever is going down in Iraq, the U.S. has no fucking business there and doing nothing but contributing to the problem if not outright causing it, much like the situation in Ukraine. We ALL know who’s behind that shit stirring and it ain’t as if we’ve got all roses and sunshine in this shithole called, America. We just can’t mind our own goddamn business much to the detriment of whose business it is we are minding at the moment. The people of Iraq, AGAIN, have my sincere sympathy because it seems that America ain’t hardly finished fucking with Iraq. The only thing America wants to do is to liberate Iraq from its oil supplies and shove capitalism down its throat! And if Iraq is shoving back against that shit, I say, “more power to them!”
