Press TV: Romney more Hitleresque than Bush
Romney even more Hitleresque than Bush
By Gordon Duff and Press TV
At least in cowboy movies, the bad guy gets shot. In American elections, they can return from the dead like Nixon, rise from the ashes, reborn, rebranded, “new and improved.”
For Romney, who is expected to lose, the odds makers give him around one chance in three, he died long ago. Romney has rebranded himself so many times that even American voters began to notice, and that takes a lot.
The election is decided by the State of Ohio. One problem we have in Ohio, as this is where I live, is a criminal state government. Ohio, with Florida, rigged two Bush (43) elections. We even know who did it, Mike Connell, working for presidential political advisor Karl Rove. Connell was caught, was being forced to testify against Rove and sought police protection.
He believed Rove, Bush and Cheney were going to have him murdered.
Then, a few days later, his small plane crashed for no reason, there was no investigation, no questions asked, he was dead. His family talked to the press once, then stopped.
Chances are they got a call or a package of some kind.
This is the reality of American politics.
One of the greatest powers over the American people has been their willingness to have their rights taken away. Americans have given up their right to honest news, to decent wages and honorable jobs and, increasingly, Americans are fooled into thinking political parties are the same.
There was a film, “The Usual Suspects” with a famous line that I turn to from time to time:
Of those who spread the message that both parties are the same, that each is equally bad, that message generally comes from two directions.
One is the “hasbara,” the paid “helpers” of the Israel lobby, who spread a feeling of despair and loss of faith, of hopelessness. Some are paid to suppress the vote, genuinely evil people, Malthusians, who believe that the common people are “useless eaters” who deserve death in wars, life in prison or daily slavery as long as they continue to profitably serve their masters.
In Israel, some radical religious leaders speak of such people as the Goyim, those who live only so long as they serve the needs of Jews.
These are the followers of the King Torah, the Likudists of Netanyahu, those who believe all but those they choose, not even all Jews, but the elite are those intended to survive.
Similarly, America has its Evangelical Christians or Christian Zionists, a permanent underclass that feels religious belief and fear of a vengeful god is all that will prevent them from sexually abusing their own children or shooting down crowds of innocent customers at shopping centers.
Charlatans and hucksters, half-educated bigots in ecclesiastic garb bilk them of their meager incomes while lulling them into virtual insanity with bizarre stories of burning flesh and human suffering.
In America, religion is a business, one that feeds off fear of death, feeds off hate and ignorance. Religion is a product, one easy to sell, one carefully groomed to exploit the weakness in man and make him the lesser for it.
Religious people in America are Republicans. They love war and torture, they wish for control, they long to see suffering and punishment and the politicians they have managed to elect have delivered.
Suffering and death at the hands of American leadership, the crusade to bring Christian civilization to the world’s masses, delivered through Depleted Uranium, through drone killings, through shiploads of cluster bombs delivered to Israel, this has given America’s “believers” a world they can feel proud of.
Sometimes I feel anger. I think, instead of the idols, there should be photographs of the dead children of Iraq and Afghanistan, of Pakistan and Palestine, of Syria and Yemen; these should be the images that represent the efforts of so many.
When Mitt Romney talked of the 47% of Americans he would never be able to convince, he may well have been right. This may well be the percent of Americans who are not potential sociopaths, who cannot be convinced to hate and kill without reason, thus a group that cannot be convinced to support a political movement meant to destroy the world.
But then, we are told all are the same, Obama or Romney, the same? Then I stop and think, what if Obama told the American people the truth, that Israel destroyed the World Trade Center on 9/11 or that Osama bin Laden was never a terrorist and died in 2001.
What if Obama said that 5000 Americans died, fighting to destroy the lives of innocent and decent people and that those who fought back did so to defend their families, their communities and their nations.
Americans now hear that Israel may not be such a good friend. Few mention why. There is no “pop culture” reporting of the murder of Palestinians or the apartheid life in Israel.
Instead, there are only lies, always lies, endless lies.
Thus, we damn Obama, we Americans, because either he does not know the truth or is it something else? He does not tell us the truth because we do not want the truth, not many of us anyway.
This is where the issue of Ron Paul comes in. This was a candidate that, at one time anyway, called for an investigation of 9/11, implying high-level wrongdoing, actual treason by the American government against the American people.
Paul spoke of the evils of the Federal Reserve System, of the Israel Lobby, of the War on Terror and the loss of freedoms, the torture, the kidnapping and suffering of so many innocent victims that it brought. Paul spoke of war for profit and how evil it is.
Then, when it came time for him to run for office, his voice changed, as with Obama, he believed Americans did not want the truth, weren’t ready for it.
Twice, a group of Hitleresque sociopaths managed to steal their way into power, the two Bush (43) regimes. They destroyed the world economy, killed untold numbers, built a way of life no human was ever meant to take part in and did so, at times at least, with vast support.
Romney, clearly worse than Bush, either Bush, a man caught changing his words more often than his underwear may still be elected president.
If he loses as we are told to expect, still many millions will stand with him, stand for lies, for deceit, for hate and bigotry.
There is nothing the least bit in common between Romney and Obama.
There is nothing the least bit in common between Democrats and Republicans.
No sane person could ever say that.
However, so many do, so many who have seen the difference and yet do not care.
What is it they do not care about? That answer is simple. So many, a very vocal group, do not recognize the difference between right and wrong. They themselves are the “fallen,” bitter and destructive, lacking hope and vision.
Those who say America is broken only have to study its history, even the poorly contrived versions schools espouse.
We are all meant to love our own countries, people are like that. What has changed is that we are now able to reach out, touch the world, find friends, see the common humanity and care about the world as we once only cared about our family or village or nation.
For the past two centuries, political systems have risen, have fallen, each with a promise to make the lives of humanity richer.
For endless centuries, religions have tried the same, some with more success than others.
There is evil. It is easy to describe.
Evil is when we stop, when we quit caring, when things no longer matter, when we stop trying to fix what is broken, when we choose to look away.
Goodness is not peace and plenty, goodness is caring and working to change things.
Romney is obviously insane, more than most can guess. All those bank accounts, all that money, all those lies.
Obama, this is another problem. Is he weak or is it that he does not trust Americans? If he finds us lacking, if he finds that we turn away from hard truths, is it our fault or his?
Sometimes I think America’s president should be chosen, picked from a group of people who hate the idea of it, see it and the empty promise of power as a prison.
When we find such a person, we will, just perhaps, regain some of what we have lost.
