We recently asked a Brown University-educated retired businessman who is also a retired Marine and FOX News junkie the following question: “Do you think the two or three Americans who were victims of Middle East head choppers are equivalent to the literally hundreds of thousands of women and children in Iraq, Afghanistan, and elsewhere in the Middle East who have been the victims of American bombs and shootings?
Naturally, he answered “yes.” This is the result of the malicious myth of “American exceptionalism” which also explains why almost everyone not only ignores but celebrates the fact that “we” nuked Japanese women and children in 1945. Ever since the regime’s victory in its War to Prevent Southern Independence, it has worked mightily to brainwash Americans in the notion that that war created “a treasury of virtue” that would forever excuse ANYTHING the U.S. government ever did, no matter how immoral and barbaric.
(By the way, the phrase “Boobus Americanus” was coined by H.L. Mencken).9:34 am on December 18, 2014 Email Thomas DiLorenzo
