A “Tribute to 9-11” played before a national audience at the RNC Convention. It sounded and felt, to this writer, like a call to arms for the war to end all wars, an apocapolypse against “islamic jihadists” who “seek to destroy our way of life.” I could not help but think this is how Germans were persuaded to attack their neighbors and commit all kinds of atrocities, all in the name of protecting the “Homeland” and doing God’s will in eradicating the world of the Jewish race.
Below is a video of the “Tribute” and Keith Olbermann’s comment:
The Republican Platform is clear:
- Police State.
In a juxtaposition of contradictions worthy of a Shakespearian play, this election is a choice between black and white. But in true Shakespearian twists, Black offers hope; White offers fear. Black walks in the path of Light, while White operates on the Dark Side. And, if fear weren’t enough, White throws in a seductive charmer, a “Miss Congeniality” to add a certain sex appeal to the ticket. Their call is to the lowest common denominator of the masses: fear and lust. They offer an illusion of hope (for riches) and security from imagined terrorists at every corner.
And what does the Black candidate offer?
- Reasoned approaches.
- Respect for our differences.
This is not an easy sell to the masses. The masses are more easily swayed by emotion than by reason.
The next 60 days will make a mark on the history of this world like none other.
