has been a lot of criticism of LewRockwell.com on FreeRepublic,
an ostensibly conservative discussion site. Much good comes out
of that site, including excellent coverage of the latest war. Patriotism
is considered de rigueur there and many of those who post
are quite conversant with the constitution.
have never heard of it. LRC is referred to by some Freepers as a
"blame America first" site. They are correct in supposing
that LRC writers including myself are not gushing over the Republican
Party. It is flawed thinking however, to suppose that we are by
default, supporters of the left and are not patriotic.
tired of taking this on the chin, and for several reasons. First,
I was myself fighting communists when many of these guys were potty
training. I’ve seen Communism up close and personal – with me it’s
not just dislike of a political system – it’s hatred for a devilish
secular heresy and yes, I believe this heresy, this dreadful murderous
communism has come to America.
a blank check to government is the quickest way to find ourselves
under the shadow of the gulag and that won’t be pretty. I base this
conclusion on a consistent pattern of government support for policies
that harm America.
I’m firing back with an accusation or two of my own and for reasons
that should be obvious I chose to title this after the famous case
from the end of the nineteenth century where the French government
protected itself by blaming an innocent man for an act of treason
committed by another man, a man who was in government. They were
afraid it would make the government look bad. What could be worse?
innocent man, Alfred Dreyfus, was falsely accused of treason, and
wrongly convicted and sent to Devil’s Island. A guilty man went
free because of his support for a corrupt government. A writer named
Emile Zola made this a cause celebre when he wrote J’Accuse,
an indictment of the government – ultimately Dreyfus was released,
but not before Zola was accused of libel and spent ten years in
exile. Justice was not the issue – Zola
had dared to question the government and government had chosen Dreyfus
as a scapegoat which was to have been the end of the story in their
consider the issues and use the facts to consider if government
deserves our unswerving support.
most certainly did not make America great. We are, or were,
great because of what we as Americans did, what we built and produced,
and what we believed. We as a people were fairly devout and honored
God, family and country. We worked hard and earned money that we
kept for our own families. When the government clinched its fist
against the Southern states there was a fringe benefit – the income
tax. American no longer had control over their own finances. World
War I, that least necessary of wars, sealed the tax in gold and
FDR brought us the glory of income tax withholding. Nixon took us
off the gold standard without so much as a "by your leave."
Are we truly free when these people can take our money and use it
to finance an agenda of which we do not approve? Is it unpatriotic
to state the facts?
At this point in time we are in a bad recession and a war simultaneously
– Yet this recession would be over if government would stop stealing
our income, and that the war would be over if we would start hitting
the real targets. We are not living the dream the founders had for
us – it has turned to a nightmare.
supposed to unconditionally support the government whose school
system teaches about homosexual perversion as natural but declines
to teach American history. I didn’t make this up – it’s your government
folks – I start complaining when you question my patriotism because
I don’t support this kind of nonsense.
to Planned Parenthood, NOW, and other extremist hate groups, our
society, encouraged by government muscle, slaughters over a million
babies a year. Our schools have drugged over half, yes that’s half,
of the male children that attend. The teacher’s unions, who just
happen to own the Democratic Party, are a treasonous cultural Marxist
organization and we have surrendered our children to their tender
are often reminded that it is remiss to criticize government in
time of war. What has government done with it’s freedom to strike
the Persian Gulf War we had the spectacle of US troops replacing
the gold faucets on the Kuwaiti Royal Family’s bath tub while acting
as security guards for George Bush I and his oil buddies but where
was the threat to American security?
lured the Kurdish resistance to Sadaam Hussein out in to the open
with calls from Bush to "rise up against the tyrant."
Bush then allowed Sadaam to slaughter them with his gunship helicopters.
Meantime, we’re flying operations Iraq for violating the no-fly
zone and have kept it up for ten years. It is just me? Can’t you
see this is not only wrong but downright stupid?
stop Serbia where Christians were bombed to protect Islamic terrorists
and drug dealers – people whom the government has characterized
as our enemies and enemies of freedom it self. We still have soldiers
in Yugoslavia protecting these bums as they purge Kosovo of Serbians
– even though we supposedly went there originally because of the
horrors of ethnic cleansing! All this murder and then it turns out
there was no holocaust, no rape camps – it was all propaganda. I’m
unpatriotic because I don’t fall for these shameful lies?
government has been playing patty cake with these terrorists for
years. As of three months before nine one one they sent hundreds
of millions of our money to the Taleban and have yet to be called
on it. They are now bombing the heck out of that same Taleban without
comment on the former support extended to them. It’s unpatriotic
we’re told, to bring that up.
at lewRockwell.com have never suggested that the perpetrators of
nine one one should get anything but grief. Somehow though, I keep
asking myself what bombing Kabul did to further that endeavor? We
did after all know about the camps and caves where the Al Qaeda
organization could be found. Isn’t the shortest distance between
two points a straight line? Not here in never never land.
to WorldNetDaily.com our willingness to placate our "ally"
Pakistan may have allowed bin Laden to escape with hundreds if not
thousands of his terrorist gangsters. We heard on TV that Pakistan
pulled out it’s own nationals who were fighting for the Taliban
in Afghanistan while the US unilaterally ceased fire. That’s weird
enough for one war but wait there’s more: Al Qaeda may have taken
full advantage of this cease fire to get out of Dodge but
I’ll let you judge how true this is.
one "honest" politician, John McCain, explained on CNN
that we had to fight expand the terror war and attack Sadaam Hussein
or he would harm Israel. Excuse me, but since when is Israel
a part of the United States?
for one have supported Israel for a long time and that time is about
over. Allies that involve us in constant warfare, such as England
and Israel, are classic examples of silly Americans propping up
socialist countries who want nothing more than to have us under
their thumb. Their own cultures live on a thin edge since their
socialist systems do not work without somebody to prop them up.
Do you like supplying the cash and the shooters for a bunch of socialists?
I don’t like it – not even a little bit.
know with absolute surety that the WTC was taken down by Muslim
extremists, mostly Saudis. Yet the "evidence" tape so
widely touted by the government turns out to have been "doctored"
to avoid embarrassing our Saudi "friends." They are not
my friends so whom can they be talking about? And
why are the thugs at the airport shaking down granny when they know
damn well that seventy five year old white women have no terrorist
back at Propaganda Central we are deluged with pro-Muslim nonsense
and horrified by having Ramadan celebrated at the White House. Did
they ask you if we wanted to become a "multi-cultural"
country or did they just decide unilaterally to destroy that nasty
old Western European Christian heritage? A heritage by the way that
has provided a safety net for minorities for several centuries.
where there are a lot of Muslims there is war and social disorder.
And I wonder every day why my government has brought six million
of them here to my country, where they are more apt to water down
our existing culture than assimilate.
about government support for the UN? Do the right wing conservatives
who are clapping their hands each time new "smart" bomb
film is released to the networks wonder why the government is selling
our national sovereignty down the tubes to that bunch of clowns
in their Halloween costumes? Our government pays most of the bills
for an organization that wishes to destroy our sovereignty, and
uses our money to do it.
you wondered why this government which you claim it is treason to
oppose, has failed to defend your borders against one of the largest
mass migrations in history? Or do you like having eight million
illegal aliens living next door to you?
you wonder why George Bush has refused to investigate the crimes
of the most despicable criminal to ever hold office, his predecessor?
reason folks, is simple. The Republicans are up to their necks in
it. It’s not about some individual – it is the apparatus. We have
a huge government system staffed by people who have an agenda other
Constitutional Republic has been stolen out from under us, and much
of this conservative posturing is based on wishful thinking. I understand
all too well how good it would feel to believe in the Republic again
but pretending we are still the America of old is a form of denial.
If we want America back we have a lot of work to do and we need
to start thinking straight.
accuse the American conservative movement of capitulating to
the neo-cons and giving a despotic government a free pass to give
our constitution the coup de grace and create the warfare
state they have been longing for. Israel’s cause is now our cause
– even though several hundred Israeli intelligence operatives are
still being detained in the wake of the WTC attack – some of them
arrested before 911 and some immediately after. Here is a
let me return to FreeRepublic.com and note that virtually every
fact I’ve stated here has been stated there. Yet for
some at least of the Freepers, there is a serious disconnect somewhere
between getting the information and processing it. Some of those
folks, and many conservatives nationwide, fail to draw the conclusions
that are supported by the facts. We can not trust this government,
we should not trust them, and we are running out of time where
that will matter because there will be no recourse.
same folks fuss about gun control – do they think Sadaam Hussein
is the one imposing that upon us? Perhaps ATF is part of the "elite"
Republican Guard about whom we once heard so much. Or was it those
nasty Chinese? Did Osama Bin Laden frame an American citizen for
a murder he did not commit – or was that the FBI?
same FBI which conservatives wish to empower to work in even more
secrecy is the one that did that. This violates common sense – it
is down right pathological that any one could support those people.
accuse American conservatives of shortsightedness, and of a
lazy man’s approach to patriotism. Some of you seem to view the
culture war as the media against us and our protector, George Bush.
I should think by now you’d have worked through the connection between
government and media. They share an agenda, they are implementing
it and we are straining at gnats while swallowing some mighty big
accuse American conservatives of taking the easy way out – it’s
fun to shout "Rah Rah" when the terrorists get a bomb
on their heads – I like it myself. But to pretend that this government
should get our unequivocal support is a dangerous fantasy. Just
ask your child if he is allowed to mention the "C" word
in his government school. You know – "Christmas?" Chances
are he is not. That wasn’t some foreign aggressor who foisted the
cultural Marxist agenda on our taxpayer-supported schools. Who is
the real "enemy of freedom itself," if not those who are
destroying it systematically?
accuse Southern American conservatives of tolerating disrespect
for your ancestors and your heritage, collaboration with a wicked
and heathen occupier and abandoning your God given task of being
the conscience of this Republic. If I am wrong – then explain to
me why the flag of the Confederacy no longer flies in America? There
was a time when even Northerners stood up for the flag, which as
a shared memory had helped re-unite us after the War Between the
States. Now the cultural cleansing is in full gear and our shame
is that it has been successful.
accuse conservative Christians of pursuing aims like the support
of Israel and the Drug War which have hastened the collapse of our
Republic. Blue Laws made it clear to everyone in America that you
can pressure government to impose your will on other people. You
have put social agenda ahead of the Gospel and your personal politics
over the intent of the Republic. Time spent in pursuit of political
goals from a pulpit is time stolen from Christ and His Gospel. Let
the laymen handle it.
the American soldiers who in the midst of all this insanity, are
doing an ugly job that has to be done, I salute you all and wish
you a Merry Christmas – and particularly Captain Larry and his Marines,
and Major Kirk and his MPs. They are in Cuba and Kuwait respectively
and they deserve better backup than they are getting from us. They
are prepared to die for our freedom – shouldn’t we at least fight
for it too, here on the home front?
the enemies of freedom, and of Western Culture, I wish you confusion
and despair, that you might see the error of your ways and we might
be protected from the horrors you are unleashing upon us. I pray
that God will fill you with His grace that you might have eyes to
see and find true repentance and the joy of His salvation.
finally, to the folks who murdered those people in New York – I
hope that Santa comes down the chimney soon….
