This morning I saw an ad for Jules Archer’s book, The Plot to Seize the White House: The Shocking TRUE Story of the Conspiracy to Overthrow FDR. According to the history, Prescott Bush [Poppy’s father, W’s grandfather] was one of the financial barons involved in the plot to overthrow FDR and install a fascist government in these United States. Except that, in some sort of Seven Days In May twist to the plot, General Smedley Butler uncovered the Machiavellian plot and stopped it dead on its track.
Like all Bush related matters, the Bushes managed to silence this piece of Bush history... so, voilá, historical documents attesting to Prescott’s career managed to disappear in some unexplained library fire... (And, in the face of still so many unanswered questions about 9/11 my mind can’t keep from underscoring to itself, “just like the unexplained melting down to rubble of those twin towers on 9/11.)
The Bushes have a penchant for managing to push truth down into some deep, dark desk drawer; or into Plato’s allegorical cave where light never reaches and where people are kept in chains by the lack of truth and the perception of shadows.
The Bushes seem to have managed to keep Prescott’s true love for a fascist state, locked in the darkness of a desk drawer, or of an allegorical cave, or in the smoldering ashes of an unexplained library fire, far away from its reaching any sort of light about them or yielding forth any sort of revelation of their truth. Facts disappeared in said unexplained library fire where only ashes remained, giving no one the possibility of unearthing the truthfulness about the Bush Ravenous Soul. Except that, truth outs itself always, and it outed itself through those souls, unafraid to speak truth to power, who were part of that history...
The Bushes seem not to have learned that truth, like anything that is pushed down, whether it be into some Plato’s cave, or into some padlocked, dark, desk drawer, of the most repressive state, will simply just out itself. It always does.
Sometimes truth seeps out through the incongruity of spoken statements, as in the case of Poppy who says he loves America but stands by, supports, and probably runs from behind the scenes, his son’s take-over of our American democracy.
Sometimes, Truth outs itself in the incongruity of actions as in the case of Jr. who pretends to be, “protecting” America from terror, while seeding terror throughout America and the rest of the world; draping his quest for imperial domination in patriotic slogans and the American flag. A Bush family quest for imperialism, which creates more hatred towards America.
In this sense, Jr. is in fact, a Redeemer. He is the redeemer of his grandfather’s quest. He is the generational envoy who is trying to right the derailment of the fascist goals as sustained by his grandfather Prescott. We are the slaves chained by the untruths of Prescott’s history, by Poppy’s hypocrisy, by Junior’s use of 9/11 to further his causa redemptoris, and by the darkness inside Plato’s allegorical cave, err, Bush’s phantasmagorical, delusional world of Lies, Mud, and Darkness.
Unlike the true Redeemer who gave His Blood for the redemption of the world, Bush’s causa redemptoris has caused many others to give their blood on behalf of the Bushes, or in a fight to prevent the Bushes from establishing their causa redemptoris magna.
The local newspaper lead into one of its articles reads, “Do you qualify for refinancing under President Bush’s plan?”
Uuuggghh?! Refinance under the Bush plan? God have Mercy!
On reading that lead, I immediately felt dirty, as if just by reading the line, “BUSH PLAN,” some malodorous mud had been hurled at THE LISTENING/READING CROWD; as if contamination with stiercol through the reading of a newspaper article carrying Bush’s words could be possible. It was as if, all of a sudden, I needed a hazmat suit to survive in Bush’s world so contaminated by lies, manipulation and propaganda.
I wondered, “Why is the newspaper even printing more of Bush’s mud and lies loaded stories on any refinancing when, as a general rule, his words say one thing but mean another?
I thought about the F-Cat which teaches nothing to kids other than how to take a test, I thought about the No-Child-Left Behind and the funding cuts that followed Bush's speech on the No-Child-Left Behind. I thought about the Katrina dead, the New Orleans survivors, and the promised rebuilding of New Orleans.
I thought that the Refinance Plan was another one of those strokes that Bush likes to paint himself with: he likes to pretend to people that he holds, inside of him, a spirit of helpingness towards those who are facing the aches of financial straits or any other kinds of aches, when darn well he knows the program will do nothing to help those who do need the help. How in the world anyone who has lost their job to outsourcing, privatization, lack of federal funding, or (insert your own) ... refinance their home?
