The Klan is the US GovernmentRepresent Our Resistance by Lenore J. Daniels
Those who believe that the president or the
vice-president and the congress and the supreme
kourt run this country are sadly mistaken. The
almighty dollar is king; those who have the most
money control the country and, through campaign
contributions, buy and sell presidents,
congressmen, and judges, the ones who pass the
laws and enforce the law that benefit their benefactors.
The freedom of the murderers is virtually
guaranteed - so long as the murders have the
might of the U.S. government behind them. This
was the case with the Ku Klux Klan. The KKK was
more than a vigilant group. As a preeminent
organization, the KKK was not limited to southern
states but consisted of respectable military as
well as civil leadership that included clergy,
local, state, and federal politicians, and local,
state, and federal law enforcement personnel.
Civilian populations participated in the witch
hunts and terrorism, but the organizers had a
clear purpose: to control the population of newly
freed Blacks and, in the process, for the
protection of Americas social, political,
economic life, stage executions with immunity
granted by the U.S. governments silence.
A succession of U.S. presidents and their
administrations looked the other way, eyeing the
resources on the lands in the southwest, while
Black Americans were lynched, their homes and
business burned to the ground, and many were
chased out of what became white controlled communities of good ole Americans.
The Klan is legitimate now! We did not witness a
truth-finding investigation after the murders of
civil rights organizers, El Hajj Malik Shabazz
(Malcolm X), or Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. Why?
And why are we now in a post racial era with a
Black man in the White House?
The Ku Klux Klan is legitimate now! The Klan is
the U.S. government - still in the business of
protecting the social, political, economic
control of the American Empire, and guaranteeing
the immunity of its practice of, now, global terrorism.
Reaching the end of Peace Mans first year in the
White House, we can say that the ancestors of the
Ku Klux Klan and its living descendents are proud
of the change in Washington. The Black Peace
Man, who has the audacity to proclaim himself the
product of Kings legacy, has taken to heart the
Klans lynchem and Chicago gangs shoot-to-kill policy of white supremacy.
Smoke em, out, says Peace Man, looking to the
East. American lives are on the line! American
lives are all that matters, and in the name of
American lives, and with more fervor than ever,
the Klan is having a field day!
On January 1, 2010, 5 Blackwater (now known as XE
or a paramilitary unit of trained terrorists)
security guards were found innocent of killing 17
Iraqi civilians (including children) in Nisour
Square, Baghdad on September 16, 2007. The case
was thrown out of court. What are we - not
human? Abdul Wahab Adul Khader was one of the
20 wounded by Blackwaters guards (Iraqis
Angered as Blackwater Charges Are Dropped, NYT).
Why do they have the right to kill people?
On November 19, 2005, 24 Iraqis, 15 noncombatant,
including children, were killed by U.S. Marines
in what is known as the Haditha Massacre.
Following an investigation, charges against 8
Marines involved in the incident were dropped.
The pattern of acquitting the innocent of
murder is not new, and it continues today within the U.S. .
Amadou Diallo, the unarmed 23-year old Guinean
immigrant was fired at 41 times by 4 New York
police on February 4, 1999. Diallo looked like
the description of a wanted serial rapist. A year
later, the officers responsible were free to go! Acquitted!
On May 3, 2008, three detectives involved in the
50-shot killing of unarmed, groom-to-be, Sean
Bell, received acquittals. The judge indicated
that the police officers' version of events was
more credible than the victims' version. The
people have not proved beyond a reasonable doubt
that each defendant was not justified in firing,
he said (Huffington Post). The 3 detectives were free to go!
On August 4, 2008 in Lima, Ohio, another white
police officer, Sgt. Joseph Chavalia, received
his walking papers following the shooting death
of an unarmed Black woman, 26-year-old Tarika
Wilson. Wilson was holding her year-old son who
was also shot in the shoulder and hand during a
January 4, 2008 SWAT raid on her house. One of
the childs fingers was amputated. (Associated Press).
Officer Chavalia was free to go!
BART Police Chief Gary Gee stated that his agency
is committed to completing an unbiased, thorough
and detailed investigation into the shooting
death of Oscar Grant III, on New Years Day 2009,
by BART police officer Johannes Mehserle
(Huffington Post). Mehserles trail in Los Angles
is expected to take place later this year. But,
former BART police officer Mehserle, according to
his attorney Christopher Miller, is a fine young
man. Miller expects his client (the fine young
man) will be cleared of murdering an unarmed
young man. Mehserles lawyer seems to be
channeling the history of exonerating State
violence, particularly when State violence is
employed to repress rebellion from the Red,
Black, Brown populations in the U.S. Mehserle,
according to Miller, will be free to go!
Red Alerts! Red, Black, and Brown people in the
U.S. know something about terrorist surprise attacks!
Certainly appears to me that the Klan is not only
in the business of practicing terrorism with
impunity but also in the business of continuing
the practice of exonerating the perpetrators of
racial profiling now on a grand scale.
The Peace Mans administration called the
Goldstone Report deeply flawed. It is not just
the Report the administration considers deeply
flawed. The 1,166 to over 1,400 Gazans,
including over 300 children, too, were deeply
flawed, and as a result, their flawed racial and
religious difference justified the siege on Gaza,
December 27, 2008 to January 18, 2009 by Israel,
and its suppliers of high-tech weaponry, the U.S.
Four thousand homes, 80 government buildings,
hospitals, schools, roads, markets, in Gaza were
destroyed - reminiscent of the Klans beginning years of waging terrorism.
Peace Mans administration dismissed the
Goldstone Report, but, on September 29, 2009, US
Assistant Secretary of State Michael Posner
announced that the United States was confident
that Israel, as a democracy with a
well-established commitment to the rule of law,
has the institutions and ability to carry out
robust investigations into these allegations (Human Rights Watch).
In other words, the Israeli government and the
U.S. government acquit themselves or is it itself
(as the U.S. and Israel seem one entity of
Klanish terrorism) on the grounds that it is a
democracy, with a well-established commitment
to the rule of law. No international tribunal
hearing for Israels assault on Gaza.
Bush Jr. and Darth Vader himself could not ask
for more compliance with Peace Mans
well-established commitment to maintaining the
U.S.s hegemony as manipulators of humanity and the Earths resources.
The Klan is the best at whipping up hysteria!
Look under your bed for terrorists! Look for
suspicious packages in the basement of your
church! U.S. citizens are asked to look for -
rather than ignore - dark-skinned people! Watch
and then report those in suspicious religious
attire! Men dressed in black gowns with white
collars, or with men wearing yarmulkes are fine.
Women with straight, silky processed hair or
lengthy attachments are okay. But be alert when
women in veils, with men in turbans, or with men
or women in African attire are about,
particularly if you cannot understand a word they are saying!
Distractions abound! Should the U.S. citizenry
recognize the white sheets worn underneath the
dark suits of those in control of the government,
their eyes would no longer focus on their
immediate surroundings in an effort to report a
terrorists to the authorities. Consequently,
the U.S. governments 5 corporate PR firms
further instruct citizens about conniving
dark-skinned people with tales of terror plots
against them - Americans! - (because Americans
have freedom). Because the U.S. citizenry was
willing to believe it has freedom and it can be
taken away from them by the terrorists from
without; because it is willing to believes the PR
firms (those corporate cable and print news
outlets) story that Peace Man was walking the
halls of the White House contemplating the hard
decision of whether or not to send 40,000
additional troops (their precious young men and
women) to Afghanistan, the U.S. citizenry were
never told by these PR firms that in November
2009, Peace Man was signing a military pact with
Yemen. With the 40,000 plus additional troops for
Afghanistan certain, Washington moved on to plot
a justifying narrative to conduct bombing raids in Yemen.
On December 25, 2009, a terrorist incident
created the perfect excuse to present Yemen to
the world as the foremost terrorist state! What
happened to Afghanistan? Well, it is happening!
Yemen, another poor country with a chaotic
government, where the Nigerian Abdul Farouk
Abdulmutallab was trained before boarding a
plane headed for the U.S., Yemen, we now
discover, urged to look to the West, signed a
pact - Peace Pact? - to receive peacemaking
weaponry from the U.S., the worlds largest arms
dealer, so Yemen, too, along with so many Klan
foot soldiers, can rain down misery and death upon its poor population.
The Peace Mans ever-so-casually hooded
administration insists that state sponsored
terrorism is out there and his administration
has complied a list (which used to be yea long
with the names of Black Americans, terrorists)
of countries, now, whole countries harboring
these darkies, these boogie men, these
niggers we are compelled to hate. The hoods at
the White House and their hounds at the Pentagon
unfurl the list: Afghanistan, Algeria, Cuba,
Iraq, Iran, Lebanon, Libya, Nigeria, Pakistan,
Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, and Yemen.
Peace Man, ever the causal Constitutional lawyer,
will check in with the Chiquita Banana attorney
at the Justice Department to ensure the U.S. and
its Klan are absolved of murdering civilian
populations in the above countries and others
waging proxy wars for the administration.
Now, the U.S. is not on the list and neither is
Israel. Britain, Columbia, Indonesia, and Ethiopia are also not on the list.
Honduras is not on the list!
The un-elected regime in the Honduras is not on
the list. The coup regime in the Honduras is not on the list!
Yet, the bodies of slain activists are piling
up, Killing Organizers in Honduras (Upside
Down World). The international media, Joseph
Shansky writes, is quiet while a dedicated
network of friends experience the systematic
killings of their companero/a. The killings
are happening almost faster than they can be recorded, Shansky writes.
What is this, if not state sponsored terrorism?
The victims, the author writes, are those
perceived as the biggest threats to the coup
establishment. These victims, Shansky explains,
are the bravest, and thus the most vulnerable:
Members of the Popular Resistance against the
coup. Their friends and family. People who
provide the Resistance with food and shelter.
Teachers, students, and ordinary citizens who
simply recognize the fallacy of an un-elected
regime taking over their country. All associated
with the Resistance have faced constant and
growing repercussions for their courage in protesting the coup.
So, then, these victims of state-sponsored
terrorism are not fighters for democracy with a
well-established commitment to the rule of law?
Well, apparently not. Follow the money, and the
money is not among these poor and working class
citizens of the Honduras. That is the way
American democracy works: If you really want
democracy, you are an enemy of this - the U.S. - broker of terrorism!
The bodies had names like Marcos Vinicio Matute
Acosta and Roger Andrés Reyes Aguilar suspect
names. If these people had not been killed by the
Klan-like gang trained at the School of the
Americas, they would have been hunted down and
stuffed into a cell on ICEs turf and held
indefinitely - for the protection of American lives, of course.
As Shansky notes, silence from the U.S. and
Europe and their respective PR firms have
acquitted the Honduras terrorist regime: The
international community, given the green light
by the US that democratic order has returned via
elections, means it is open season for violent
forces in Honduras working to tear apart the
political unity of the Resistance Front against the coup.
So the bodies piling up in the streets in the
Honduras, as these bodies are, are not evidence
enough for the community organizer himself, Peace
Man, and his security of state, that Honduras is
a state-sponsored-terrorist regime?
That is immunity for the imperial wizards of Amerikkka!
The new list of suspected countries of terrorists
is the pretext that allows the U.S. to acquit
itself of any wrongdoing as it is the
self-proclaimed innocence in pursuit of evil.
If we assume Peace Man is politically naïve;
Peace Man wants to experience the power, as he
often says, of this great country; if he is now
caught in something for which power and great
country has befuddled him, then he is being
terrorized into committing terrorism by sheets.
If, one the other hand, Peace Man is, as he
claims, the commander-in-chief; if he was pleased
to accept the backing of Goldman Sachs since
Goldman Sachs found in this Black man something
acceptable; and if he was and still is willing to
bow to the Klan, then he has willingly submitted
to a form of slavery in which he offers his voice
and his rhetorical skills in the service of the white sheets.
Maybe it is all of the above? Or is it
something more sinister: The wizards went looking
for a grand wizard who could charm the U.S.
citizenry into compliance with everlasting war?
Why is it that other nations with their eyes open
now recognize the white sheets and the flaming
crosses behind the rhetoric of peace in Washington D.C.?
