Carl F. Worden

The red flag that should give pause to most Democrats this primary season is the undeniable fact that the corporate-owned media is heavily backing Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination.

I don’t have a dog in this fight. I initially supported Obama, but had to withdraw that support when I discovered his positions on economic issues, gun issues and moral issues like abortion and homosexuality. But I can state unequivocally that my change of heart had nothing whatsoever to do with what Obama’s former pastor, Jeremiah Wright, had to say in sound bites, the NAACP meeting or the Washington Press shindig.

No, I do not believe evil U.S. scientists created the HIV virus to kill off black Americans, but if you know anything about the Tuskegee Experiment, where white doctors diagnosed black patients with Syphilis, but didn’t tell them in order to see how their disease would manifest itself untreated in the latter stages, you might be a little more inclined to understand why Wright would be inclined to believe such a thing about the origins of HIV.

But the overwhelming majority of what Reverend Wright had to say was based on absolutely accurate and historical truth, so why do the talking heads at CNN and Fox keep accusing Wright of “demonizing” this nation and being a racist? Wright mentioned the unconstitutional and unthinkable act of rounding up American citizens of Japanese decent into concentration camps during World War Two. Well what’s the problem? We did it!

Wright mentioned that the “chickens were coming home to roost” on America because of our intervention into the affairs of other nations. Even the 9/11 Commission Report concluded that the attacks of 9/11 were motivated by our interventionist actions all over the Middle East. Anyone stupid enough to buy the line that we were attacked because Muslims “hate our freedoms” is a total sponge who will believe just about anything. They are also the same morons who still believe our soldiers in Iraq are fighting to protect our freedoms. Our freedoms were never threatened, and no nation on earth right now is in a position to threaten them. We have far more to fear from our own president and Congress, in terms of loss of freedoms, than any external threat.

Do you readers have any idea what our nation did to prop up the most vicious dictators that have ever existed since Hitler and Pol Pot? Our American operatives sometimes assisted and other times acted unilaterally to overthrow and/or support governments all over the world in an attempt to defeat the spread of Communism, and in so doing we helped slaughter millions of foreign citizens.

The former Shah of Iran was a cold-blooded murderer who would order his secret police to kidnap, torture and “disappear” anyone even remotely suspected of supporting his opposition, and our government supported him entirely in both word and deed. That is an historical fact, folks, which is why we now have so many Iranians angry at us. Bin Laden was motivated to pull off the 9/11 attacks because of our intervention and military presence in Saudi Arabia. Forget the conclusions of the 9/11 Commission Report; bin Laden came right out and stated as much!

Then there was the “Vietnamese Pacification Program” that came to be know as “Phoenix”, where tens of thousands of South Vietnamese citizens were assassinated on the mere suspicion that they were either financial or logistical supporters of the Viet Cong during the Vietnam War.

I could go on and on with the dirty laundry list and I realize most Americans have remained blissfully ignorant of the terror we have inflicted on other nations these past 60 years, but just because you didn’t know what we did with your tax dollars, does that somehow translate into “We didn’t do it”? Is Reverend Wright wrong to state the absolute truth?

As I have written many times before, when individuals sin, God deals with them individually; but when an entire nation sins, God deals with that nation nationally. That means everybody pays. That is exactly what Reverend Wright has been telling America. No wonder Reverend Wright proclaimed, “God damn America”! Somebody had to come out and tell us that God doesn’t take orders to bless America, no matter how many times people stand up and demand it. If you know anything about how God has treated his “Chosen People” when they repeatedly stayed from him, just imagine what God might do to a not-so chosen people like us for doing what we have done all these years. I can’t remember who said it, but to paraphrase, the speaker said, “If God does not punish America for what we have done and are doing, then he owes the people of Sodom and Gomorrah an apology”.

Currently, we have militarily attacked and occupied the sovereign nation of Iraq, a nation that did not threaten us or in any other way attempt to attack us. That is a first in American history, no different than when Hitler invaded Poland, and if our attack on Iraq was not in self-defense, then all the people we have unnecessarily slaughtered and maimed in Iraq were victims of murder, and do you think God didn’t notice?

The talking heads on CNN and Fox keep acting oh-so indignant and insulted by what Reverend Wright had to say, but not one of those jackasses has ever tried to correct what he said, except to point out that Wright is a racist and extremist for believing that nonsense about how HIV came to be. But everything else Reverend Wright had to say is truthful and mirrors very much of what the ancient prophets of God had to tell their people.

The response is about the same. The biblical prophets of God seldom had a lot of flowery good news to tell the people of a certain nation under threat from God, and those prophets were often killed by people who really didn’t want to hear what they had to say. They simply murdered the messenger, and one way or another, that is exactly what these corporate whores are trying to do to Reverend Wright in order to discredit Barak Obama and help Hillary get the nomination.

I’m really glad I caught on to Obama when I did, because he has now chosen the path that appears to be politically expedient: To completely distance himself from Reverend Wright altogether, no matter how truthful the man’s word is. That tells me Barak Obama has no better character than Hillary, and both disgust me equally now.

Frankly, black or white, Jeremiah Wright would be a far better candidate than any of the three people likely to run for president. At least the man wouldn’t blow sunshine in our ears when it is his duty under God to tell it like it is. And remember this: Had any of the nations repented and turned back to God when warned by the ancient prophets of their impending demise, they would have been spared the total annihilation and destruction each of them suffered. I doubt today’s Americans have better hearing, and every time I hear somebody proclaim, “God Bless America” I tend to duck and look for cover.

For the murders and mayhem we have committed as a nation, God should surely damn America for no other good reason than to maintain his own credibility. God happens to be an absolutely just God, and that does not bode well for the United States.

But the big giveaway this primary season is the obvious support for Hillary by the corporate-owned media, and if anyone has wisdom, let them understand that whoever gets the support of the multi-national corporations, is a person who will not act in the best interest of the middle class after being sworn into office, no matter what assurances that candidate may give to the contrary now.
