Tea Parties and Blinders

Take the blinders off of a work horse and he can see the whole field. This creates a tendency for him to not walk a straight line.

The tax protests of today are being organized and hyped mainly by the right wing repubs who for the last eight years never took any steps to speak out against the crimes of the Bush Administration. They are correct in bashing Obama's policies but if you look closely at his actions, they are only a continuation of the Reagan/Bush/Clinton/Bush destruction of our country. What should be a bipartisan protest has essentially turned into a media event to further polarize those who still insist in participating in the false left/right paradigm.

Local conservative Nashville talk radio is having full time coverage. One of these gung ho tea party radio hosts has continuously called for the bombing of Iran, including the use of nuclear weapons if necessary. He is also a major shill for Israel, praising their bloody actions against Gaza and never questioning the untold billions 'we' give them each year in cash and weaponry. These 'talkers' also never mention the Federal Reserve except in passing. It's off limits to discuss the Fed's role in the theft of trillions of dollars.

A guest on one of the shows this morning was warning that plain clothes cops will be everywhere and that even some homeland security personnel will be watching the Nashville protests. Looking for those 'domestic terrorists' as stated in a new DHS report sent out to police all over the country?

The Department of Homeland Security is warning law enforcement officials about a rise in "rightwing extremist activity," saying the economic recession, the election of America's first black president and the return of a few disgruntled war veterans could swell the ranks of white-power militias.

A footnote attached to the report by the Homeland Security Office of Intelligence and Analysis defines "rightwing extremism in the United States" as including not just racist or hate groups, but also groups that reject federal authority in favor of state or local authority.

"It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single-issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration," the warning says.

"The purpose of the report is to identify risk. This is nothing unusual, the Homeland Security Department did this "to prevent another Tim McVeigh from ever happening again."{more}

Will Grigg has a good analysis of this DHS propaganda in Revenge of the 'Waco Gene.'

Not everyone has the blinders on. The tea parties should not be a one issue protest and a great number of people agree with that. Just not enough.

War is missing from the tea parties. The Fox News klan will blast away at Obama's financial policies and the next minute praise his perpetuation of false wars against 'terrorists,' the surge in Afghanistan and sanctions against Iran. Not a mention that the biggest military budget in history for 2010 and the untold costs of the wars of bank and military/industrial profiteers and for Israel over the last eight years may have a bit to do with our economic mess. And they certainly don't mention that civilians in their native countries are being killed for their 'freedom.'

There's never a discussion of how the bank bailouts relate to the intelligence services and the false flag of 9/11. See Greg Bacon's The CIA front AIG's Connection to 9/11 and Chris Bollyn's The Zionist Nexus Linking 9-11 and the Financial Crisis for some background.

Of course the whole truth won't be told. That might result in more than just a few tea parties. Propagandists use the same tools as they always have. Tell a little truth, divert and cover-up the real stories, lie and play on the emotions of the gullible. Continuously repeat 'the Republicans will save you,' or 'the Democrats will save you' but never say that the whole system is a corrupt criminal enterprise.

The tea parties are needed. Perhaps they will morph into a more all encompassing activism that will fight against the real enemies of America.

First the blinders have to come off.

  1. Looking for those 'domestic terrorists' as stated in a new DHS report sent out to police all over the country?I read that report and if you leave off the cover page and the introductory page, sure enough, halfway thru the second page, one of the biggest war profiteering and Fed/Treasury department looters is mentioned, twice.

    You'll see the terms "Jewish" and "anti-Semitic."

    All of this brouhaha about us "right-wing terrorists" and those bumper sticker wielding terrorists is most likely being generated by the real gang of criminals and terrorists raping this country blind, the Kosher Nostra.All one has to do is look thru the appointments by Obama to see that a large majority of them are Jews.

    They're getting nervous that their decades long scamming and control of the federal government and Wall Street is being exposed.
