    A Black Agenda Radio commentary by Glen Ford

    A culture that celebrates the annihilation of whole peoples, casually and without guilt or introspection, is devoid of human values at its very core.” Ultimately, such a society turns against itself. It’s not a sudden madness, but a long history of mass murder come full circle.

     

    The Ultimate Logic of a Society Built on Mass Murder

    A Black Agenda Radio commentary by Glen Ford

    Mass murder is at the core of the American national religion.”

    As a native-born American, I grew up watching cowboy and Indian shoot-em-ups in which the highlight of the movie was when the white guys in the circled wagon train shot the Indians off their horses until all the red men were dead, and very silent. Indians didn’t do a lot of screaming in pain when they were shot; they just expired. Same thing with buck-toothed Japanese, line after line of them, charging into U.S. machine guns, falling instantly silent and dead. It was somehow quite clean, almost antiseptic, these cinematic rituals of death, all staged for the broadest popular consumption to demonstrate the inevitability – and cosmic justice – of ultimate white victory over the darker races.

    This was mother’s milk to the white American nation – which is why Richard Pryor and kids like me rooted for the Indians. Mass murder is at the core of the American national religion, which is a celebration of a genocidal march across a continent filled with other, doomed human beings. America’s contribution to European culture was to invite “all the nations of Europe” to come to these shores and become fellow “white” citizens, whose status was defined by the enforced inferiority of Blacks and the remnants of the Indians. Ritual burnings of Blacks were organized as great public festivals, attended by thousands, staged in order to affirm whites’ collective right to commit murder. This monopoly on violence was what made them white Americans.

    The modern mass American murder is overwhelmingly a white phenomenon.”

    U.S. foreign policy reflects the nation’s origins and ghastly evolution into a globe-strutting mob, that empowers itself to kill at will. A million dead Filipinos at the turn of the 20th century; aerial bombing of Haitian villages less than a generation later; the totally unwarranted nuclear annihilation of two cities at the very end of World War Two; two million dead Koreans shortly thereafter; three million dead Vietnamese in the next decade,; and, since 1996, six million Congolese – all, and many, many more, slaughtered in the name of U.S. civilizational superiority – the ghastly opiate of the white American masses.

    What kind of human beings does such a culture produce? To paraphrase the Bible, “By their massacres, ye shall know them.” The modern mass American murder is overwhelmingly a white phenomenon. Yet few whites ask the question, “What’s wrong with white America?” It is seems that white America lacks the capacity for self-examination. It cannot grasp the simple truth, that a culture that celebrates the annihilation of whole peoples, casually and without guilt or introspection, is devoid of human values at its very core. In the end, it turns against itself. That is the simple lesson of Newtown, and Columbine, and Aurora. The same cultural deformity creates a huge market for games like the very popular Assassin’s Creed, whose latest version integrates individual and group murder with events of the American Revolutionary War. American kids can simulate mass murder all day long, and feel patriotic and smart while doing it. Assassin’s Creed features an inter-racial cast of killers – possibly in deference to the brown guy in the White House who owns the ultimate Kill List. It’s the modern equivalent of the cowboys and Indians movies of my youth. The same sickness.

    I found some other video's from these guys that I thought would be "interesting." I posed the question of why would white workers vote in Republican's who are pushing through more draconian anti-worker laws. The answer is that they're indoctrinated with this ideology:

    Their reaction to the re-election of Barack Obama:

    Why would Blacks workers vote for Democrats ?

    "I posed the question of why would white workers vote in Republican's who are pushing through more draconian anti-worker laws"

    Democrats   are   just  as   anti-worker as   Republicans.  Obama   is   no  less  owned  by  Wall Street   than  Republicans.  They   pretend  to  disagree,  with   workers  getting a  few   crumbs and  Democrats  the  credit; and   each  election  cycle, the   crumbs   get   smaller. The   ultimate  goal  is  more  money   for   corporate   America and  to   reinforce  the   Dem/Rep  mindset.

    As   for  the   guys  on  the   videos, they're  no  less  indoctrinated   or   programmed than  blacks   who  don't  realize   Obama   and   the   Democrats   don't   give  a  damn   about   them.

    White or Black

    MOVE or Waco, if you're for the people, guns aren't going to do you much good. Unless you have something that will bring down drones....

    I don’t expect to see this

    I don’t expect to see this article which I can’t really forget. Can’t do anything with it and keeps on thinking about it that made me scared. I’m trying to ignore it by creating free xbox live codes and share it to my friends and chosen public figures.

    The Sad Story Of the Past

    This is going to be one of the saddest story of the past of the humanity, genocide and racial execution for those who are not related to any race and culture. This happen probably because some people think they are more important and more right and think they are very different.  I hope everyone will put their shoes to this issue and think for the good of the mind kind. This is hardly unbelievable for humans doing these public executions. Its time to value people and our neighbors.
