The Terrorist Government of the United States

"How can you have a war on terrorism when war itself is terrorism?"

 --Howard Zinn

"Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have the exact measure of the injustice and wrong which will be imposed on them."

--Frederick Douglass

Everyday ordinary Black, White, Brown, Red, and Yellow people of the United States are living under the yoke of a self-legitimized organized corporate / military crime syndicate known as the government.

This government (including both Democrats and Republicans) is propped up by an insidious propaganda apparatus known as the main stream [i.e. corporate-stream] "news" media. The objective of the media is to legitimize the daily economic, political, and social de facto terrorism against the ordinary people of this nation, and to legitimize the economic and military terrorism against the everyday peoples of this entire planet - Mother Earth.

Under the cover of allegedly fighting "terrorism," this self-legitimized corporate / military organized crime syndicate [i.e. the government] engages in constant unbridled subterfuge, disinformation, and cynical manipulation -- which repeatedly disfigures, distorts, and quashes the legitimate aspirations of everyday people in this nation and around the world. It is itself, a terrorist government, whose hypocritical policies enhances rather than diminishes "terrorism." This is, quite simply, because the U.S. corporate terrorist government, in reality, thrives on terrorism, at the horrible pain and expense of ordinary people everywhere.

In the fallacious name of protecting an essentially non-existent everyday people's U.S. 'democracy,' this U.S. governmental corporate / military crime syndicate wages an unending propaganda and economic and political war of terrorism against the struggling people of this nation. In so doing, the ordinary people are deliberately and perpetually kept ignorant, in fear, and in disarray -- easily manipulated, controlled, and used as malleable cannon fodder by the amoral and avaricious elite.

Examples of The U.S. Governmental Crime Syndicate's Terrorism

We must understand that corporate hegemony [i.e. domination] is terrorism. It is terrorism against everyday ordinary struggling people. Moreover, economic 'austerity' is also terrorism against ordinary people. Yes, it is terrorism! It is blood sucking, by the rich and powerful, of the masses of people.

The trillion dollar criminal 'bail out' of the Wall Street banksters, pharmaceutical, insurance, and other corporate-elite robber barons was, and continues to be, a brazen act of terrorism against the economic and human rights of everyday people.

The draconian Patriot Act and the NDAA (i.e. the so-called National Defense Authorization Act) are also acts of terrorism against the civil, political, and human rights of everyday people. In the name of fighting terrorism, the U.S. governmental crime syndicate is wantonly engaging in terrorism and repression against the masses of ordinary people.

The attacking and bombing of Libya, north Africa, by the U.S. and its NATO puppets was not only unconstitutional and an egregious abrogation of international law; it was an act of terrorism -- plain and simple. Moreover, such acts serve the financial interests of the bloated corporate elite, while simultaneously and deliberately heightening hatred towards the ordinary people of this nation who are ourselves under steady attack by the U.S. corporate crime syndicate, known as the government.

Even as Barack Obama, and his Democrat and Republican accomplices hypocritically rail against foreign "terrorism," the U.S. corporate-government crime syndicate covertly launched a massive terroristic cyber attack against the sovereign nation of Iran, and covertly coordinates and militarily supplies the bloody armed conflict in the sovereign nation of Syria. These covert acts of terrorism have nothing whatever to do with 'democracy,' and everything to do with subterfuge, corporate greed, and callously manipulating the everyday people of this nation and the world. So-called U.S. 'national interests' means, in reality, nothing more than serving the financial interests of the tiny U.S. corporate elite, at the horrible expense of ordinary people in this nation and abroad. It is the very real terrorism by the elite avaricious rich, against ordinary struggling people everywhere. It is the terrorism of the U.S. corporate-government crime syndicate against the everyday people.
