    For you and I this isn’t our first rodeo.. We’ve been through violence, uprisings, civli unrest, government oppression, insensitive leaders etc. etc. But this time may be different, and therefore even more dangerous. In the midst of a deadly virus, Minneapolis has exposed us all to another virus that has been with us since our first setters arrived in Jamestown in 1607. This virus is injustice, and the result of its infective virulence has affected Indians, slaves, women, immigrants, whole ethnic groups, and even those who hold unpopular political views.
    We may eventually get a vaccine or medicine for the Coronavirus. But so far, in 400 years, no one has found a cure for injustice. The late and great historian Richard Hofstader once wrote that there were two Americas that have developed side by side. One America was steeped in liberty, justice, and tolerance. And the other America was one of oppression, intolerance and injustice. He felt the two Americas were in constant tension with one another and he was unsure which one would prevail. Are we more certain about that even today? Which America will prevail?

    I don’t think “which America” needs be asked. We ‘who are not the people’ of America (though we are by rights Americans by virtue of living on an American continent) know, not being blinded by the greater virus of patriotism, that “America” represents power and oppression. Not just internally but globally. By arrogance and hubris liberally dosed with massive ignorance is how it’s known world-wide. Internally, “America” never wanted slavery to end. It never wanted “the West” to ever be conquered. The oppression and the wars were to be endless. Damn those “Indians” for running out of bodies to torture, sicken, starve and slaughter, just like the buffalo. Damn those “niggers” for waking up to a need for some freedom and because of Wall Street greed and Washington’s desire for hegemony, a civil war was fought in which slavery became a reluctant issue – a convenient false flag – to justify a war to decide if states had the right to secede from the “Union.” When you see a picture of a white cop killing – lynching – an unarmed black man you know which America rules. But for how much longer? As Dr. Bramhall comments, you can only kick a dog so many times and it will bite back. I sit back in my own underground bunker on top of Mount Slesse, watching and waiting. A gargoyle is very patient. Soon America will collapse on itself, an event much worse than the dissolution of the Soviet Union, and its states will become little Third World nations, their citizens struggling to survive, finally using those second amendment guns to kill each other. Then they’ll be taken over economically and politically by their old enemies and payback will begin.
