When the White Liberals Fail it is Time for the Militants

We must teach these fascists that the overwhelming majority of people in the world do not think and act like them and in fact that Americans do not think and act like them.

When the White Liberals Fail it is Time for the Militants

By Lloyd Hart

After reaching the threshold where I can no longer tolerate the white liberal pretense of caring about environmental, labor, women's, minority and gay rights here in the US and abroad, I have reached the conclusion that it is time for militancy on these issues right across the board. The white liberals will say that militant behavior will ruin any chance that they have at effecting change in the democratic process. I would like to point out to the white liberals that they walked away from democracy completely and finally when they did not challenge the ethnic and political cleansing of the voter list in Florida in 2000, effectively turning their back on the black vote in America. The white liberals claimed that George Bush did not have a mandate but rolled over on every significant issue Bush put into play. And when 9/11 occurred the white liberals tossed the US constitution into the scrap heap of history by voting for a completely illegal piece of legislation, the Patriot Act. And now that the glaring and questionable circumstances surrounding the security failures on 9/11 need investigation as to why Paine Stewart got F-16s in ten minutes prior to 9/11 but four very large air liners full of just as interesting people didn't the white liberals roll over again. And again it is revealed that commerce and the stock market are the lie that we always knew it was, the white liberals can't even make it an issue in an election they bragged they would win.

When it came time to neuter the fascist in the white house the white liberals didn't even show up let alone show up with a message that could mobilize the left leaning voters to the poles. The white liberal cabal inside this bankrupt democracy that almost never crests above 50% of eligible voters is actually two different parties. The one that can't stomach the wing nut christian fundamentalists who effectively control the republican party, so they call themselves democrats but are actually fiscal conservatives who are in it just for the money and who by the way have succeeded through the democratic leadership council to drive all real lefties from the process . And the others who are corrupt lefties that were once idealistic but have succumbed to the will of the big donors and who are cowards to the bone when it comes to effecting change or the will of the people.

Now that aggression has proven to work for the right they will continue to use it while the sects on the left bicker on how bad a fascist Bush really is. The only hope in this situation that can galvanize the left wing sects is militant behavior in the streets. Show those American minimum wage earners that you are actually willing to fight, to lay your life on the line for their freedom. Human beings instinctively react in favor of those that engage in the defense of their human rights. When the person clad in black through the garbage can through the window of the starbucks in Seattle the average working person in their heart of hearts had a reaction of empathy with that act, consciously or unconsciously they react favorably for the simple fact that powerlessness is universal amongst Americans. Which is why Blacks and and Latinos make up the majority of low ranking members of the military, powerlessness. People have turned away from the white liberals and the white fascists by a majority in pursuit of base satiation of their needs, settling for much less than democracy and a much lower definition of their needs.

As always history is event driven and the speedy march toward the Bush Doctrine of global domination and military primacy will provide plenty of opportunity to display our resistance in a militant fashion but unfortunately the so called non-violent aspect of what should now be called the opposition movement instead of the peace movement as the white liberals can't effectively claim that label any more. The non-violent peace activists see property damage as an act of violence instead of what it really is, an act of self defense. Causing damage to the very things that are destroying our lives like this economic system where the very air you breath is being turned into a commodity tradable by the haves by stealing it from the have nots. Violence is when you physically harm a another not commit an act of self defense by throwing a garbage can through a starbucks window. I do however caution those that feel that they can no longer contain their anger to be conscious enough not to bring harm to others if they feel that they need to break something. I do however advocate when you are physically being harmed as in being aggressively struck about the head and body that you also act in your self defense.

I would like to remind the non-violent peace activists that Gandhi was assassinated and it was made to look like it was done by religious fanatics but was quite clearly the work of the British. Yes Gandhi may have succeeded in securing India's so called independence but you must remember that Gandhi did this with actions and promises that India would redistribute the wealth being stolen from Indians by the British. Gandhi, if left alive would have then turned his sights on land reform and redistribution of the wealth. This is why he was assassinated, unless of course you wish to tow the official line. It is also important to remeber that if Gandhi had to confront America Fascists he would have been assassinated much earlier in his career, you know, like Martin Luther King.

If you do not stand up against the destruction of this planet as the New Delhi Doctrine of Adaptation to global degradation is now policy, you are simply appeasing the myth of the Fascist Social Darwinists and the Radical Christian Book of Revelationists which feed off each other to acquire power. How can reasonable people stand by and allow the activities of only 25% of the adult population of America drive us to destroy our selves. How can this be. Well it can't stand, It won't stand. It is now time for the second American Revolution in which America must answer for the crimes it has committed in the name of empire. A revolution that puts an end to the destruction of this planet. A revolution that removes commerce as the central operating principle of humanity and allows the free distribution of food, water, healthcare and housing that nature provides us so generously. A revolution that halts the space program in favor of the bio diverse replanting of the world's forests that are the single greatest source of food, water, healthcare and housing on this beautiful planet. A revolution that allows a well regulated free market to operate only after the fulfilling of the basic human, plant and animal needs. A Revolution not of workers but of human beings, where women are equal in all matters and where race is a joyful difference, and where culture is an incubator for enlightenment not an excuse for oppression.

If we are to save our selves and all life on this planet we can no longer exist with the same co-operation in our own demise. We must challenge the deforestation lumber business and pollution energy business by making it impossible for them to do business. These two industries must change or perish under the foot of Revolution. If the deforestation lumber business and pollution energy business think they can use our children and our taxes for their public subsidized fascist colonial plans we must teach them that they are dead wrong.

We must teach these fascists that the overwhelming majority of people in the world do not think and act like them and in fact that Americans do not think and act like them.

I would rather die than let this planet perish. So now I am a Militant Revolutionary. Viva Revolution!
