|Racism in America|
Today's article is longer than what the experts claim Americans can handle.
I hope they are wrong.
It has been a while since we wrote about the ugliness of racism and how it is perpetuated by those who need it to further their political agenda. We all know that divided people create easy pickings and the victor get the spoils.
In an article published back in August 20, 2011, we touched on different types of racists and how their primal fears are used against them to provoke chaos in society.
Below is an excerpt to set the tone on what the right wing nuts are predicting will happen in this upcoming presidential election:
The Arrogant buy AK-47s, military fatigues and survival rations. They know, they just know, that someone is coming for their women, their land and their food. They must be prepared for these upcoming events. The billion dollar industry that feeds on their paranoia continues to laugh all the way to the bank.
The Arrogant crowd are tired of being on edge and can't wait to instigate a horrific confrontation in which they will feel vindicated. They taunt by bringing their weapons to public places and use intimidation techniques to provoke "others" - specially if they are white, but liberal, or elitist democrats who betrayed their race by supporting an "Other" into the White House.... (you can read the rest here.)
The new conspiracy theory is viewed by the media as laughable and ridiculous. It has been dismissed as the ranting of lunatics that have invested heavily in tin foil hats while spending all their disposable income in stockpiling ammunition and military-style food rations.
Let's take a look at this conspiracy theory from a different perspective: Code for doing exactly what they hope one of these lunatics will do.
|Watt's Riots - August 12, 1965|
In the article describing the hoped for events, the seeds of suspicion are clearly planted; The Trayvon Martin murder is cited as a key point in the conspiracy theory. The shooting that took place at the White House is another.
So far we have fear of black people, recognizable names, and actual (unrelated) events. Let the conspiracy continue.
Other important elements: A deep-throat-like source at the Department of Homeland Security - whose “super-secret code name.” is Rosebud. (I kid you not, this is what the author said) The author claims that the super-secret name's origin is only known to three people and one of them is no longer part of the scene. The suspense is killing us.
Or maybe not.
We could just infer that the author of this fantasy lacks imagination and ripped off the name from the movie "Citizen Kane" - A biography about Randolph Hearst.
Spoiler Alert: Rosebud was the name of Randolph Hearst sled.
Can we assume that this character was invented by the author to create a bit of separation from his lunacy? or that there is someone claiming to be an employee of the Dept. of Homeland Security that has A) an ax to grind, or B) Homeland Security is not in the habit of vetting their employees?
Either way, the conspiracy theory gains a sense of mystery and danger that is essential to keep the hopeful reading.

This is akin to putting cross hairs on a map and not expecting an emotionally disturbed individual to take it upon himself to find a direction for his hatred.
The right wing consistently denies provoking the atmosphere in which these types of event can, and do, happen. In this case, they will deny any events arising from using the following rhetoric and making it go viral (which is a point of pride made on the article):
Watch for a false flag event against Obama or his family, something that will outrage ‘black America.’ It will be carefully choreographed, but executed in a manner that will evoke the ugliest of reactions and create racial chaos in this country that will make the Watts riots, 1968 and the Rodney King riots pale in comparison. That’s the third leg in this.” .... "....stating that “a civil war” is the more appropriate term." ..."...They are revolutionaries, and revolutionaries thrive on chaos,” "...Economic chaos, chaos through racial division, and chaos through class division, ..." "... Farrakhan (Working for the CIA) is to coordinate the Blacks and the Muslims to prepare for riots this summer, using any means necessary.”Additional red meat found in the conspiracy theory article; "... It is common knowledge that Obama is not an American,..."
See what they did there? instructions and justification for anyone that answers the short electrical brain waves penetrating the tin foil. It should be obvious that they expect one of their unstable followers to reach into their stash of stale bullets, and go Rambo against our President and anyone on the street that looks like him.
Needless to say that "this summer" is almost over and the riots have not happened, but hey! we can't have reality intrude in conspiracy theories can we? - The worst part is that the hatred before the election is reaching critical mass in social media and we have reason to fear these lunatics.
People targeted in this bizarre article include:
Valerie Jarrett, Louis Farrakhan, Bernanke, Gheitner, Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, George Soros, Henry Kissinger, Jon Corzine.
|President Bush and Alberto Gonzales at the Ranch|
August 26, 2007
Look at his lavish vacations, his limited work schedule, and those with whom he is working. This is a very dangerous man who has, as his closest advisors, people who have orchestrated the revolutions of the 1960s.Not enough red meat? A black man with limited work schedule (code for lazy. No reference to W. Bush spending the majority of his presidency MIA. The same thing he did when 'serving' in the National Guard)
Take a look how they represent Timothy Geithner:
"Do you actually think that the fact that Timothy Geithner’s father worked with Obama’s mother in Indonesia was coincidental,” .... "...including George Soros, Henry Kissinger,"The plot and conspiracy thickens through invocations of European economic crisis and the hopeful implosion of the American economy. Chaos, chaos is invoked a lot. They love their chaos. The more confusion the better.
|The real Homeland Security|
I loathe putting a link to the full article here, so I'll ask that you Google "The planned re-election of Obama revolutionary style" , or Doug's name, or Canada Free Press. You will find this is just one of the many incendiary articles that are fodder for the nut jobs on the fringe of society.
What we need to be concerned about is that the whackadoodles are fondling their AK-47's awaiting for their moment of glory and orchestrated chaos.
As decent human beings, we may want to keep handy the following information and report any "free speech" about assassinating our president, and, or his family. Social media anonymity is easy to unravel by the real professionals.
