america, RIP, 1776 - 2006

well, we've arrived. we stand on the gleaming shores of our Own Brave New World. a world where you can be held indefinitely, without knowing the charges against you, be tortured by any number of Presidentially Approved methods that may or may not violate Geneva Conventions, never see a lawyer and never have a public trial, a world where you must watch what you say and who you say it to. a world where the twisted savages amongst us are running wild and tearing the throat out of what's left of the American Dream, gleefully rutting in the bloody muck, snorting and bellowing, the foul stench of pure loyalist shit rising like a deadly mist all around us. these are dark days. it is no longer about debate, it is no longer about reaching a middle of the road compromise. no no, it is now about defining yourself as PRO TORTURE and PRO WAR or not. and if you support the current administration and its headlong rush into soft fascism and the full apparatus of a Comfortable Police State, then you support the terrorists who want America dead. get it? you want the same thing they do: the end of the America of freedom and justice, of habeus corpus and the Bill of Rights, the end of privacy and personal space, the end of the very principles that we fucking stand for here in this goddamn country.

go here, here, and here (for how we have it in Fulton County, GA) if you want to get a better idea of what the fuck is going on.

I leave you with this:

Okay. That's it for now. Read it and weep...See you tomorrow, folks. You haven't heard the last of me. I am the one who speaks for the spirit of freedom and decency in you. Shit. Somebody has to do it.

We have become a Nazi monster in the eyes of the whole world - a nation of bullies and bastards who would rather kill than live peacefully. We are not just Whores for power and oil, but killer whores with hate and fear in our hearts. We are human scum, and that is how history will judge us. No redeeming social value. Just whores. Get out of our way, or we'll kill you.

Well, shit on that dumbness. George W. Bush does not speak for me or my son or my mother or my friends or the people I respect in this world. We didn't vote for these cheap, greedy little killers who speak for America today - and we will not vote for them again in 2002. Or 2004. Or ever.

Who does vote for these dishonest shitheads? Who among us can be happy and proud of having all this innocent blood on our hands? Who are these swine? These flag-sucking halfwits who get fleeced and fooled by stupid little rich kids like George Bush?

They are the same ones who wanted to have Muhammad Ali locked up for refusing to kill gooks. They speak for all that is cruel and stupid and vicious in the American character. They are the racists and hate mongers among us - they are the Ku Klux Klan. I piss down the throats of these Nazis.

And I am too old to worry about whether they like it or not. Fuck them.

-- Hunter S. Thompson, Kingdom Of Fear, (2003)
