challenging European/American male patriarchy

by moth Tuesday, Nov. 04, 2003 at 11:17 PM

Oppression is perpetuated by wealthy European/American white male patriarchs; from Columbus slaughtering First People of North America to U.S. Dictators GW Bush and Cheney. The oppressed people were/are Iraqi, Dineh, African, Irish and any other race/nationality that did not suit the dominator's patriarchal culture.

When we combine the current abuses against people and ecosystems on a global basis, we need not look far to find a wealthy European white male at the helm steering everyone into war/genocide. From Cristobal Columbus and his massacre of North America's First People to GW Bush and his massacre via military of Iraqi/Afgan and others, the wealthy European male seems bent on destruction/enslavement of others..

We need to look at class also, many footsoldiers of the military are lower income Europeans, Africans and Latinos who are coerced to die for their imperialist masters. Many are in difficult financial/legal situations and given false promises of rewards/forgiveness of debt. Young people just out of high school are influenced to die for their country by mass media propaganda. Racism continues in the military as the front line soldiers die for master GW Bush..

During colonial slavery (Howard Zinn, People's History of U.S.), the European (Irish) indentured servants joined forces with African indentured servants to free themselves from the plantation owner's tyranny. The people were then separated on the basis of race to prevent workers solidarity. Racial segregation is used today against unions and prisoners. Enforced racial segregation in the prison system keeps the population fighting one another in racial gangs while the guards and wardens sit back and laugh..

While so many people are locked up for petty drug offenses, the war criminal GW Bush is still at the helm, steering America into another genocidal nightmare, this time against Arab people, but not limited only to Arabs. The soldiers on the front lines are lower income and predominantly African/Latino/"poor white". The lower the economic/social status of the European, the closer they are put to the front lines. The educated European Americans from good family lineage sit back and make plans. The wealthy Europeans encourage others to fight their battles for them..

..and their shiny SUVs keep burning Iraqi oil..

Africa is still being raped of her diamonds, forests and oil. This is not the USA alone, but France, England, Germany and other EU powerhouses. The former colonizers of Africa have not stopped exploiting her people and environment. The WTO encourages the continuing rape and plunder of Africa under the guise of "free trade". The WTO leaders and DeBeers diamond execs met with CA dictator Arnold Schwarzenegger to discuss their plans. All good Europeans are expected to fall in line and not question the orders from above. To do so would be unpatriotic and risk rejection from the comfortable social circles of Euro-Americans..

..and Israel's apartheid wall around the Palestinian people grows higher with barbed wire..

GW Bush is another replaceable puppet. The oil war under Gore would have taken place in Columbia instead of Iraq as Gore's family fortune is connected to Occidental Petroleum. While Monsanto supplies the Columbian Army (filled by School of the Americas) with glyphosate "Round-up" pesticides to spray over the Putamayo rainforest, they coerce African farmers to give up their organic farms and move to the cities so biotech Gene Engineered crops can replace traditional indigenous African farming. With support of WTO and GW Bush's standing US army of global liberation of course..

..monoculture biotech GE crops replace biodiversity of traditional indigenous farming and lead to famine. When a new mutated plant virus destroys the monoculture GE crop, all the ex-farmers trapped in the cities will starve along with everyone else when the food runs out. Controlling a population's food source could lead to famine, willful ignorance by Monsanto/biotech of famine risk conditions from GE crops is GENOCIDE..

..Monsanto's GE "Bt corn" contains toxins from bacteria Bacillus thuringensis, in the same genus as Bacillus anthracis, commonly known as anthrax. The Bt toxin engineered in the corn is lethal to insects such as the Monarch butterfly larvae who eats the milkweed that the Bt corn pollen lands on..

Monsanto claims "Of course the toxin from Bacillus thuringiensis is not harmful to people."


More prisons in California to house the growing population of American people of all races/nationalities who choose to stand up against the fourth reich dictator team Bush/Schwartzenegger. Can we talk about forced experiments on prisoners of the latest psychiatric chemicals? Fear, surviellence cameras and propaganda are always good tools to keep the population in line..

Genocide against Africans numbered 20 million during the slave trade, and now many descendants are in the military front lines facing ever growing Iraqi anger, not to mention US depleted uranium left in the warzone of Iraq. Those not in the military are sent off to prison for trying to survive in the "drug war". Merrily humming Wagner as he cruises down the I-5 freeway in his HUMvee, Arnold Schwarzenegger is glad that the Iraqi oil is still flowing through the Halliburton pipeline..

..another oil spill kills thousands of sea animals and fossil fuel smog causes children in LA to develop asthma/lung cancer..

..forests are being clearcut by multinational timber corporations and the Earth becomes drier everyday.. a European/American male i am sick of my people's continuing racism/classism/genocide and i want to learn how to live on Earth without being oppressive. That comes with recognition that i am living on stolen land and profiting from slavery and stolen oil. Please join up to end this oppression of people and life on Earth..
