PATRIOT'S MESSAGE FOR THE "HOMELAND": HAVE HOPE & TURN THE OTHER CHEEK & HOPE...GET TOUGHER ON "TERRORISTS"
Obama's eloquent speech was just what his masters need: a Black man down with the folks, connected to Black nationalism 'transcending' a radical vision to unite all under the white supremacist american flag's expanding empire. Movingly he spoke of the effects of national oppression and its ideological engine, racism ... using historical facts to lie about the truth, the source of the horrors, to ensnare people especially Blacks and 'progressive' whites in the deadly trap of capitalist electoral politics, to misdirect them from the only real solution, systemic, revolutionary change.
Was it an accident his grievances and promises omitted particulars of the 'hope' he sells for U.S. imperialism, its genocidal genesis and history up to this moment in Iraq, Palestine, Africa, Central and Latin America? Did he forget the fascist oppression, unjust imprisonment, degradation, deprivation, criminalization and police murder called 'justifiable homicide, the state terror behind the criminal justice system, the systematic elimination of the BPP and others who dared fight for real change? The fascist witchhunt and terror against peoples of color and immigrants, especially Arabs and Muslims?The fascist Patriot Act and its endless spawns enmeshing us in total surveillance, 'intelligence' databases and state propaganda called 'news'? No, Obama did not forget. His message was a calculated effort to divide potential believers from those who dare to know they have nothing left to lose and dare to resist, dare to give their lives rather than crawl on their knees before the oppressor... the 'suspected terrorists' who stand in the way of amerika's dream.
Obama betrays everything the Black liberation and the working class struggles have fought for and stand for ... with the winning charm of the snake oil salesman.
