Citizens! My fellow-traveling Nazi-Americans! Like the suddenly aroused First Ladies—FLOTI? FLOTUSES? in Newspeak— we wring our hands instead of wringing necks. We are all complicit in the vile destruction wrought by the monstrous Trump, remembering that Obama ousted over two million of the same sort of people during his reign of smiles and subterfuge—a Nobel Peace Prize winner! Ha-ha! Ha-ha! Ha-ha!
Not to mention the destruction of the Middle East ushered in by the father-son Bush team then doubled and redoubled by the bellicose democracy-crazed democrats. And now? And now? No secular Middle Eastern country need raise their hands in surrender. In the name of democracy our demo-nazis have destroyed them all. My goodness! We didn’t realize that we could not kill all of “them.” Too bad about all those refugees banging on Europe’s door, babies washing ashore on Turkish beaches, financial targets of opportunity for political creeps like the fascist Turkish regime that pockets billions of Euros of panic-money from the European Union.
Nor to forget that our “smart” bombs and drones have brought great credit to the manufacturing war-complex laughingly called “private industry.” Congratulations to my fellow democracy-loving citizens for allowing our elected congressional war-patsies to fund the obscene weaponry that our culture revels in. Jingo! Jingo! Jingo! goes our Big-Brother-President.
But there is so much more that makes us pop up our patriotic chests. Oh my, not that Vietnam thing again, millions dead and agent orange too! We coulda-woulda-shoulda used nukes cried the fearless generals way back then, remembering well the effective mushroomy carnage over yellow-peril Japan. And haven’t we had our share of other “color” problems? Of course we have. The “Red Man,” the first terrorists according to our Declaration of Independence. So we exterminated them making our world safe for democracy, cotton and segregation. And consider the “Black Man.” And now we must contend with the “Brown Man!” What’s a freedom-loving, heaven-blessed nation to do?
We are doing it! We, the people are allowing our government, a government of the people, by the people, and for the people, to destroy children and their families in plain sight. The railroad tracks no longer lead to Auschwitz. The villagers can no longer look away. We, the people, now see everything. It is time to awaken to what we have become. It is time to wring political necks!
