Where did our America go? Who stole it? How much political cheat and deceit has occurred, to transform our relationship to the rest of the world? Watch and listen very carefully to this remarkable video that details how our present condition came to be.
Students of a cynical philosophy taught by Leo Strauss at the University of Chicago, were taught to believe that they, as the elite, should use deception, religious fervor and perpetual war to control the ignorant masses — you and me! Religion was for the masses; rulers need not be bound by it. Strauss believed that those who are fit to rule are those who realize there is no morality and that there is only one natural right -– the right of the superior to rule over the inferior. This requires perpetual deception by the rulers for the purpose of perpetual war.
Strauss taught that a political order can be stable only if it is united by an external threat. In the footsteps of Machiavelli, he advocated that if no external threat exists, then one has to be manufactured and maintained with an aggressive, belligerent foreign policy. “The freedom of individual choice” is a powerful manipulative tool used to control us… inspired by Sigmund Freud’s psychological theories of hidden human drives which trump all moral authority.
In line with the Frankfort School, Neo-Con Michael Ledeen wrote, “Creative destruction is our middle name, both within our own society and abroad. We tear down the old order every day, from business to science, literature, art, architecture and cinema, to politics and the law. Our enemies have always hated this whirlwind of energy and creativity, which menaces their traditions (whatever they may be) and shames them for their inability to keep pace. Seeing America undo traditional societies, they fear us, for they do not wish to be undone. They must attack us in order to survive, just as we must destroy them to advance our historic mission.”
This movie is a good introduction to the problems America now faces. Pay close attention. We have been set up for defeat by an internal enemy.
God bless Fred Phelps, minister of the Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, Kansas.
What else could possibly bring the “left” and “right”, “liberal” and “conservative” political extremes together, but a commonly-shared dislike and disdain for the work of Fred, the hateful hater — and their love, honor and respect for his tiny intended target?
Thanks to Fred, here comes everyone from every walk of life to stand tall, dignified, in a graveyard in Tucson, united as a human wall, against Fred’s tasteless, disrespectful, godless rhetoric — and a peaceful gathering unfortunately necessitated by the murder of a little 9-year-old girl, Christina Taylor Green (9-11-2001 to 1-8-2011).
What has gotten into that man? Why would he want to disturb others in any way, ever? Why would he want to create chaos and distress? Has he forgotten that “God is Love”? That he claims to worship the “Prince of Peace”? Fred needs a good shot of stillness, peace, quiet, humility and clarity. We wish this for you, dear Fred.
The good news is that the Arizona legislature — both parties in both houses — voted unanimously to ban picketing and disturbances at funerals — a miracle of unity and cooperation. Fred’s wicked rallying cry of “Thank God for the shooter!” is now mirrored by our own, “Thank God for Fred Phelps,” for Fred is the force that has brought us all together in our artificially-created world of division, conflict and opposition.
Michael Moore also has some ingenious ideas about how to fight Fred.
When did Christmas become Xmas? As the world spins in the destruction of food sources, economy, ecology, I pray that any and all grinches will reverse their negative agenda and join in the fun, as in this story by Dr. Seuss.
Eleven years ago I had the distinct weirdness of meeting the Reverend Fred Phelps of Topeka, Kansas.
You know Fred. He’s the head of the loony Westboro Church in Topeka, Kansas. They’re the people who like to go around to funerals of gay men who’ve been murdered (Matthew Shepard) or died of AIDS (Randy Shilts) and hold up signs saying “God Hates Fags.” They’ve also gone after Ronald Reagan, Princess Diana, Heath Ledger and Jerry Falwell after they died. They did this because…well, I can’t really follow their logic at this point, but clearly they feel very strongly about whatever it is they’re doing.
Lately they’ve branched out to protesting the funerals of soldiers who’ve been killed in Iraq or Afghanistan… Article and video by Michael Moore… read more by Moore at his website
Published here in the JTA, The Global New Service of the Jewish People on October 18,2010…
JERUSALEM (JTA) — Israeli Sephardic leader Rabbi Ovadia Yosef in his weekly Saturday night sermon said that non-Jews exist to serve Jews.
“Goyim were born only to serve us. Without that, they have no place in the world; only to serve the People of Israel,” he said during a public discussion of what kind of work non-Jews are allowed to perform on Shabbat.
“Why are gentiles needed? They will work, they will plow, they will reap. We will sit like an effendi and eat,” he said to some laughter. Continue reading
