"Get out of here, you lowlife scum!"

-Sen. John McCain to anti-war protesters, January 29, 2015

by Joe Giambrone

One unexpected revelation, that John McCain's death has shown us, is that we completely misjudged some notable players on the national stage. Bernie Sanders, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and even Audrey Denney in Northern California have praised the serial warmonger as some kind of national treasure. Real progressives, on the ground, expect those people to fight against John McCain's imperial agenda of mass murder for mass profits.

What do these representatives stand for in reality? When did imperial wars of aggression become the norm and beyond criticism? What alternatives do we now have in America to this Nazi-styled, industrial-scale barbarism and an ongoing domestic propaganda victory, which Goebbels would have been proud of concocting? Belligerence is now heroism.

The Tweet from Cortez is so depressing. I thought that she would 'get it.'


There really is no hope to end the Empire, is there?

Yes, we could end it. If people would pay attention. But we need to be radical, outrageous, focused, and determined. Citizens need to understand what's at stake, both right now and in the near term. It's our job -- yours, mine, and anyone else who cares enough -- to inform them. By not just talking about the problem, but providing them with a decisive plan, a compelling, actionable trajectory, i.e. to stop the military madness and endless wars, WE DO THIS! And we refuse to take 'no' for an answer. Either we do something like this or something equally drastic, or as you've said, there is no hope. Maybe people have already given up. I haven't, which apparently just bores and annoys folks. I don't get it but then again, I don't get suicide either.

"What do these representatives stand for in reality?"

They stand for exceptionalism, a world view of America as home to a super race, exempt from international law, above the standards of basic decency and respect for others. They stand for a contempt of principles, a disdain for anything resembling morality. They stand for standing shoulder-to-shoulder with war criminals if that flatters them, raises their reputation in the eyes of a brain-washed, ultra-nationalistic citizenry. These people are no better than the Bloods, Crips, and other gangs who put loyalty and camaraderie, being accepted and lauded for complicity in horrible crimes, before even the survival of the human race.

McCain was just another rancorous thug, one of way too many, pushing us closer to nuclear war and extinction. Apparently Cortez didn't learn something from her rich and rewarding experiences which anyone bathing a dog understands. Both soap and sh*t float. That doesn't make them equivalent to one another.

Thank you for writing this. The level of brainwashing in western empire is almost beyond comprehension.


The psychological warfare on the left has been a smashing success verified by the outpouring of hero worship for a war monger like McCain. The psychopaths in charge certainly know what they're doing.
