ETHNIC FURIES IN THE
June 6, 2006
by: S.R. Shearer
"... nation (ethnos) shall rise against nation
(ethnos), and kingdom against kingdom ..."
Most people in the United States are fixated -
and not without reason - on the Middle East and the emergence there of Islamic
Fundamentalism as a potent "civilization challenge" to the West,
and most particularly to the American New World Order System. Islamic Fundamentalism
has proved to be a powerful, cohesive force in uniting a huge and otherwise
multi-ethnic portion of the earth - one that stretches from Morocco in the
west to Indonesia in the east - against the brutal machinations of the American
There is, however, another challenge that is emerging
south of America's border that - because of its proximity to the American
homeland - may ultimately prove to be just as much a "civilization challenge"
to the American New World Order System as the one posed by Islamic Fundamentalism.
And while it may not possess the biblical significance that the Islamic challenge
possesses, it may prove in the end to be just as lethal to the American system,
and just as intractable.
The cohesive force behind this challenge - called
the "Bolivarian Process" (named after Simon Bolivar, the "George
Washington" of Latin America) - is a strange mixture of RACE and
socialism that pits the "indigenous peoples" of Latin America under
the banner of socialism against "white domination" flying the flag
of the American New World Order System. In the first instance RELIGION
(i.e., Islam) is the cohesive force uniting the various "players"
against the American elites; in the second instance RACE (the indigenous
peoples of Latin America) coupled with socialism is the unifying element.
THE GREED AND AVARICE OF THE AMERICAN ELITES
One should understand,
however, that underlying both challenges to the American New World Order System
is a fundamental revulsion by every-day people - every-day people in both
the Islamic World and Latin America - to the bloodsucking avarice of the American
elites. Moreover, one should be cognizant of the fact that the avarice of
the American elites toward the resources of Latin America is every bit as
rapacious and brutal as the avarice of these same elites toward the oil wealth
of the Islamic World.
The truth is, the brutish
economic policies pursued by the American elites in their slave-states south
of the border - e.g., the confiscation of peasant lands by multi-national
agricultural and mining interests, the forced sale of public assets in these
countries for pennies on the dollar (forests, water rights, mining rights,
local industries, etc.) to American multi-national companies or their agents
- is breathtaking in its enormity, and so much so that over 80 percent of
the resources of Latin America are now owned either outright by American multi-national
corporations or by their European proxies, or by indigenous "front organizations"
controlled by the American elites.
This on-going confiscation
of the wealth of the people of Latin America has virtually stripped average
people there of their ability to make a living. Take, for instance, what Glamis
Gold, a so-called "Canadian" company whose shareholders are mostly
American "richy-riches" (and whose corporate headquarters, strangely
enough, is in Reno, Nevada) did to the people of Guatemala.
THE MACHINATIONS OF GLAMIS GOLD IN GUATEMALA
As reported by Cyril
Mychalejko in Z Magazine, Glamis Gold was given a $45 million loan
from the World Bank (the WB) - one of the three pillars of the American New
World Order System, the other two being the WTO (the World Trade Organization)
and the IMF (the International Monetary Fund) - to construct and operate a
gold and silver mine in San Marcos, 90 air miles from Guatemala City in the
country's western highlands. Two of the towns directly affected by the project
were San Miguel Ixtahuacan and Sipacapa, whose populations were 98 percent
and 77 percent indigenous respectively.
According to Prensa
Libre and Vox Latina Institute, ninety-five percent of the populations
in the area opposed the mining project. Nonetheless, the lands on which these
people made their living as subsistence farmers were ruthlessly confiscated
by the lackey elites of the Guatemalan puppet government and in essence handed
over to Glamis. The evicted peasants were forced off the land and into the
dingy slums of Guatemala City as "human trash;" and those whose
lands were peripheral to the mining operations of Glamis Gold were forced
to stand aside and endure the savage destruction of their environment, and
the cyanide poisoning of their drinking water by the mining operations.
Similar mining operations
are going on all over Latin America - displacing thousands and thousands (indeed,
millions and millions) of peasants and forcing them to move as so much "flesh
and bone rubbish" to the huge shanty towns and slums that surround cities
like Rio de Janeiro, Mexico City, Sao Paolo, Guatemala City, Bogota, etc.
All this to say nothing about how the operations of giant First World agri-businesses
like Swift and Company, Cargill, Monsanto, etc. are similarly expropriating
peasant farm land and "relocating" the displaced peasants to the
urban slums of Latin America, there to rot like so much garbage in a putrid
IT'S NOT AS THOUGH THE POOR IN LATIN AMERICA
DON'T UNDERSTAND WHAT'S HAPPENING TO THEM
Now it should be understood
here that - contrary to the thinking of most Americans - these peasants are
not "dummies." They are well aware of what's been happening to them,
and that it is the greed and avarice of the American elites and the multi-national
corporations they control that has made life so miserable for them. For example,
MST - an organization of landless peasants - has been founded in southern
Brazil to organize against the First World agri-businesses that have made
life so wretched for them. Their views on what's happening to them are well
articulated, and they have a clear understanding of the "plantation farming
system" that has been forced on them by the rapacious greed of the American
elites - turning vast amounts of land to the production of "cash crops"
for export to Europe and the United States as coffee, sugar cane, fruit, lumber,
cattle grazing, flowers, cocoa (for chocolate) - and ipso facto, taking
the same amount of land out of the production of food for the indigenous people
of the area.
And in all of this,
one should not think that the profits from these agricultural products find
their way back into the pocket books of the indigenous people of the area;
they don't. Rather they are funneled into the coffers of the ultra rich in
the United States and their lackeys in Europe. For example, a 132 pound bag
of coffee (60 kg) sells for $335.00 in the United States, of which only one
penny finds its way back into the hands of the people who actually grew and
picked the crop. Think about that: ONE PENNY in every $335.00!
This is RAW GREED
writ large, and the indigenous peoples in Latin America know it. It is against
this kind of greed that the Bible thunders:
"Go to now, ye rich men [i.e., the elites of North America],
weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you.
"Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are motheaten.
"Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness
against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure
together FOR THE LAST DAYS.
"BEHOLD, THE HIRE OF THE LABOURERS WHO HAVE REAPED DOWN YOUR FIELDS,
WHICH YOU HAVE FRAUDULENTLY KEPT BACK FROM THEM, CRIETH: and the cries
of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of sabaoth.
"Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; ye have nourished
your hearts, as in a day of slaughter.
"YE HAVE CONDEMNED AND KILLED THE JUST; and he doth not
resist you." (James 5:1-6)
MST TELLS THE TRUTH TO THE PEOPLE
MST, however (as well
as countless other peasant organizations like MST), is determined to tell
the truth about what's happening. They are those about whom the Bible says
"BEHOLD, THE HIRE OF THE LABOURERS WHO HAVE REAPED DOWN YOUR FIELDS,
WHICH YOU HAVE FRAUDULENTLY KEPT BACK FROM THEM, CRIETH: and the cries
of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of sabaoth."
In small classes, meetings
and assemblies, and through their newspaper, Jornal Dos Trabalhadores Sem
Terra; their magazine, Revista Sem Terra; and numerous pamphlets,
MST informs its base about what's happening through a well-planned program
of political education - explaining to them in detail how they are being cheated
and impoverished by the American New World Order System. They have even established
schools in their encampments, settlements and cooperatives to instruct their
base as to what's occurring.
This instruction is
translating itself into action: For example, in a draft document on the "Fundamental
Principles for the Social and Economic Transformation of Rural Brazil"
directed at the "people of Brazil," MST has taken special note of
how the economic policies of the American New World Order System has led to
the increased consolidation of land and wealth in the hands of those who have
sold Brazil out to the North Americans, and how these same policies have led
to the impoverishment of the great majority of the Brazilian people.
The document calls for
the people of Latin America to challenge the greed and avarice of the "Colossus
of the North" - and the "people of Brazil" are beginning to
do so: From taking over large estates owned by the corporate interests of
the American elites; constructing black plastic-covered encampments along
the side of the road to call attention to their demands; and even marching
and staging confrontations when necessary. At times they have been brutally
repressed, their leaders assassinated and imprisoned; yet still they persevere.
Moreover, their tactics are being copied everywhere in Latin America - from
the tin mines and gas fields in Bolivia, to the copper mines in Chile, to
Latin America's giant fruit and coffee plantations.
A POPULIST RAGE AGAINST THE
AMERICAN NEW WORLD ORDER SYSTEM
The anger of the people
of Latin America against the oppressive economic policies of the American
New World Order System is rapidly morphing into a "populist rage"
against the lackey elites that the Americans have installed in their puppet
states south of the border - inspiring whole communities to opt out of "government
control." Take what's happening in southern Mexico, in a region of land
scarcity and government-controlled death squad activity.
When the Mexican government
sent in troops to force the evacuation of peasant farmers from the region
so that the land could be turned over to the control of huge North American
corporate mining and agri-business combinations (specifically, President Vicente
Fox's much-publicized "Plan Puebla-Panama Project"), the people
of the area turned to the Zapatista Army of National Liberation (EZLN) and
"opted out" of government control and began forming autonomous governments.
Similar populist movements
against the governments of America's lackey elites in South and Central America
are spreading like wildfire - taking root in Argentina, Brazil, Colombia,
Ecuador, and Peru.
THE EMERGENCE OF PRESIDENT HUGO CHAVEZ OF
VENEZUELA AS A "POPULIST CHAMPION" OF THE PEOPLE
These various "grass-roots"
movements of the people of Latin America have begun coalescing around
the emergence of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez who has arisen as a vexing
and potentially dangerous adversary for the United States - an adversary who
has developed close ties to Cuba and is now generously subsidizing the island's
economy. In addition, Chavez has championed the rise of Evo Morales in Bolivia
- who is now threatening to "socialize" the Bolivian economy and
disinvest Bolivia's rich natural gas fields and tin mines of their foreign
owners - specifically the American elites and their European lackeys. All
of this, coupled with the re-emergence of Daniel Ortega and the Sandanistas
in Nicaragua is causing much alarm in the board rooms of America's multi-national
corporations in New York - and well it should!
Chavez, buoyed by Venezuela's enormous oil wealth,
has launched Petrocaribe, an energy alliance designed to deliver subsidized
oil from Venezuela to the small states of the Caribbean, and has also begun
financing Telesur, a regional news network intended to compete with the BBC's
and CNN's Spanish-language programs; and all these anti-American initiatives
are but a small example of the "mischief" that Chavez has been up
to in Latin America.
Venezuela and the United States have repeatedly
clashed at the Organization of American States (OAS) and other regional institutions.
For example, in 2005 when President Bush and the hemisphere's 33 other elected
presidents and prime ministers traveled to Mar del Plata, Argentina, for the
fourth Summit of the Americas, violent anti-American demonstrators filled
the streets. Chavez was the only head of state to join the protesters, although
Evo Morales (now President of Bolivia, but then only a candidate for the office)
joined him. His raging polemics fired up the crowds and revealed his political
reach and popularity in the region.
REVOLUTION AS A LAST RESORT OF THE PEOPLE
In the face of all this unrest, it certainly could
be said that the people of Latin America are ripe for revolution. But Revolution
is a very difficult, dangerous and bloody undertaking, not something casually
entered upon, especially a "people's revolt" - a revolt from the
bottom up. This is not what happened during the American Revolution. The American
Revolution had the support of America's "indigenous elite:" the
merchants of New York, Boston, and Philadelphia, and the planter elites of
Virginia, the Carolinas, etc.
Very few "people's revolts" are - in
the end - successful - perhaps only five: (1) the French Revolution of 1789,
(2) the Russian Revolution of 1917, (3) the Mexican Revolution of 1911, (4)
the Chinese Revolution of 1949, and (5) the Cuban Revolution of 1959. And
of these revolutions, two (the French and Russian Revolutions) ultimately
came to nought; two (the Mexican and the Chinese Revolutions) were co-opted),
and only one remains viable: the Cuban Revolution.
IMMIGRATION AS A "SAFETY VALVE"
As a result, revolution is a LAST RESORT,
especially when there is a possible "safety valve" through which
the people can find an escape from their misery. That "safety valve"
is IMMIGRATION to the United States - a safety valve that the American
elites have surreptitiously and furtively encouraged as a means:
their vast investments in Latin America from the fires of revolution.
To depress wages
in the United States and destroy their union adversaries.
Estimates are that there are now upwards of 30
MILLION (not the 10-12 million, or even the 20 million that are "advertised"
in the press) "illegal immigrants" in the United States - most of
them from Latin America. Immigration to the United States is the much preferred
option of the people of Latin America - and, as we just suggested, it is an
option that the elites are more than willing to encourage, and to HELL
with the plight of WHITE, native-born American workers (and black for
that matter) who suffer as a result - giving the lie to any belief that the
elites are interested in "patriotism" as such.
What do they care if their workers are black,
brown, or white; or whether they are "illegal immigrants" or native-born
Americans - JUST AS LONG AS THEY ARE CHEAP, and that the money they
save using cheap labor flows into their pockets rather than the pockets of
their workers. This is surely what Tyson Food thinks, what the Hilton, the
Wyndham, the Marriot, etc. hotel chains believe; what Monsanto, Cargill, Archer-Daniels
Midland, believe; what Wallmart believes, ad nauseum, ad infinitum.
THEY ARE EVERYWHERE!
The fact is, as these economic refugees pour across
America's southern border, they cannot help but depress the wages of American
workers; they cannot help being used as a battering ram by the elites against
the country's unionized workers - an army of unemployed workers able and willing
to act as "scabs" wherever and whenever American workers go out
on strike; they cannot help but strain already underfunded social services.
As a result of all this, they have had a profound and very disheartening effect
on the bottom two-fifths of America's workers - and the fact
that you may not realize this only indicates that you are not a part of this
portion of the population.
And make no mistake
about it, they are EVERYWHERE - these illegal immigrants: on construction
sites, as maids and janitors in even the best hotels and motels, as short-order
cooks, as gardeners, as day-laborers standing on corners for jobs, as garment
industry workers, as employees in the meat packing and poultry industry, in
every nook and cranny of the services industry, ad nauseum, ad infinitum.
And in this connection, it should be noted that the
vast majority, numerically speaking, of those who inhabit the bottom
two-fifths of the population are working-class WHITES; people that
"establishment types" - i.e., "centrist" Democrats and
"centrist" Republicans (there is, after all, very little difference
between "moderate" Democrats and "moderate" Republicans)
- call "poor whites" or "trailer park trash."
THE LOWER TWO-FIFTHS OF AMERICA'S WORK FORCE
ARE RAPIDLY BEING EXPELLED FROM THE MIDDLE CLASS
The truth is, despite
the statistics that are everywhere trumpeted by the mainline media in this
country suggesting that the country is enjoying unparalleled prosperity, this
prosperity is not a prosperity in which most have shared. It has been a prosperity
in which only those in the top two-fifths of the country's population have
participated in; for the rest, it has been a time when both husband and
wife in the middle one-fifth of the population have been forced into the workplace
just to stay even, and where the remaining two-fifths of the population -
those who are at the bottom of the economic pyramid - have actually lost ground,
a lot of ground. And in this regard, it should be noted that the belief
that the jobs that illegals take are jobs that America's native-born workers
won't take is nothing more than a LIE perpetrated by the American elites.
"Illegals" are being used to drive down the wages of native-born
workers. Jobs that once paid a decent living are being handed over to "illegals"
who are willing to work for half as much, and American workers are being told
to take the pay cut or they will be fired and their jobs handed over to "illegals."
of "working-class" jobs has had a fundamental effect on the United
States. Increasingly, we are facing a situation in which there exists two
Americas - separate and unequal; two Americas that uneasily exist side by
side with each other, and there is little indication that the growing division
of America into two classes will end any time soon. The so-called "American
Dream" is vanishing for millions of heretofore middle-class, white Americans.
As Bartlett and Steele said some fifteen years ago,
"... if you work for a living and if you are in the middle-class income
range ... the chances are that your standard of living is falling or will
do so in the coming years ..."
THE COMING RACE WAR
Naturally enough, the "BROWNING"
of the American labor force has not gone unnoticed by America's white, native-born
workers - leading growing numbers on them to conceive of the struggle they
are engaged in order to maintain their "middle-class" status as
a RACE WAR - a race war that growing numbers of native, white Americans
are coming increasingly to believe, and rightfully so, that they are losing.
Of course, the "race
politics" practiced by such groups as La Raza, La Familia, etc.
in the Hispanic community don't do much to tamp down the fury of native born,
white Americans. And just how infuriating these politics are is made clear
in what happened in San Jose, California, recently when "flyers"
appeared out of "nowhere" that flooded the entire "south bay
area" declaring California, Arizona, New Mexico, etc. part of Mexico:
in addition to a lot of hate-filled rhetoric directed against "white
Anglos," the "flyers" announced "null and void" the
Treaty of Guadeloupe-Hidalgo and urged all people of Mexican descent to rise
up and take California back.
As a result of all this,
increasing numbers of working-class whites believe that if they don't do something
quickly, they are going to be engulfed numerically by a "brown army"
of Latinos from Mexico, and Central and South America - all of them breathing
slaughter and hatred against whites as the come, intent on wresting control
of the United States from the whites.
Many well-meaning Americans
such as Lou Dobbs of CNN believe that the issue of illegal immigration from
Latin America can be separated from the issue of race; that most Americans
- after having survived the Civil Rights struggle of the latter part of the
Twentieth Century will be able to make such a distinction. They would scoff
at the idea that racism as such could ever again be a "player" in
the American political arena - either as a factor in the developing struggle
between North America and Latin America, or internally as a struggle of white
Americans against America's minority communities. The thought that, after
almost fifty years of integration and "racial progress," the country
could again be plunged back into open racial conflict seems to most Americans
absurd. But, sadly, the Bible says that that's exactly what is going to happen
in the "end of days."
THE ACTION-REACTION SPIRAL OF ETHNIC CONFLICT
Indeed, the Bible
speaks of ethnic (i.e., racial) conflict
as one of the most pointed and distressing signs of those events leading up
to the "Beginning of Sorrows" (i.e., the first half of the Tribulation
and the appearance of the Antichrist as a messianic savior) - the creation,
as it were, of what Paul Hockenos calls in his book Free to Hate, an
"action-reaction spiral" of one ethnic group "raging"
against another. Specifically, the Bible says:
"... nation (ethnos) shall rise against nation (ethnos), and kingdom
against kingdom ..." (Luke 21:10)
It is EXACTLY
this kind of war that is taking root between the United States (on the one
hand) and Latin America (on the other hand), and the fact is, once such a
war is ignited, who knows where it will end. It could very well bleed into
the now very tattered multi-ethnic fabric of American society and rend it
from top to bottom.
Now in all of this,
it is important to understand that "ethnic (i.e., racial) mobilization"
is not an elite phenomenon; it is a "populist phenomenon" (at least
in its initial stages). It is a "grassroots" affair which is driven
from the bottom up, not from the top down. In this kind of a situation, elites
are powerless to stem the radicalization process because the rage that is
driving the process is a "people rage."
As the racial mobilization
continues in its deadly process, even those who had at first put little value
in their ethnic identity are pressed towards ethnic mobilization. The opportunity
of choosing between a "moderate" (multicultural) identity and an
ethnic identity slowly disappears as the rhetoric becomes ever more heated
- forcing more and more individuals in each ethnic group to adopt ethnic identities.
More importantly, ethnic identity is often imposed by the opposing group,
specifically by its most radical elements. This is what happened in the former
Yugoslavia; for example, take what happened to one "moderate" (multicultural)
Bosnian Muslim school teacher as the "action-reaction spiral"
of ethnic conflict began to take hold there. She laments:
"We never, until war, thought of ourselves as Muslims. We were Yugoslavs
(i.e., multiculturalists). But when we began to be murdered, because we are
Muslims, things changed. The definition of who we are today has been determined
by our killers."
TWO POSSIBLE END SCENARIOS
There are at present
two possible outcomes insofar as this ethnic conflict is concerned, both bad
insofar as average Americans are concerned. One scenario is represented by
legislation that has been passed by the House of Representatives, and the
other scenario by legislation that has been passed by the Senate:
The legislation that has been passed by the House reflects
the overwhelming majority of the American people; it is a draconian bill that
would mandate an end to the flow of economic refugees from the south into
the United States by building what would amount to be an "Iron Wall"
between Mexico and the United States. In addition, it would make it a felony
to be an "illegal" in the United States, and it would criminalize
the hiring of "illegal workers" by employers. It would stop the
flow of immigrants and end immigration from the south to north as a "safety
valve" against a social upheaval in Latin America directed against the
American New World Order System in Latin America.
The legislation that has been passed by the Senate reflects
the desires of America's elites; after making an empty "show" of
better enforcement of U.S. border laws, it would essentially continue things
as they are, permitting the flow of refugees into the United States. This
preserve the United States as a "safety valve" against
pressure that could build up to a socialist revolution in Latin America that
would strip the elites of their holding there, and
it would continue the downward pressure on wages in the
There are severe consequences
to both pieces of legislation. The House legislation would UNDOUBTEDLY
- as several recent articles in Foreign Affairs Magazine, a mouthpiece
of the American elites, have suggested - precipitate a continent-wide, socialist
revolution in Latin America. Such a revolution has already taken root in Venezuela
and Bolivia, and it is threatening to do so in Nicaragua.
In addition, Brazil,
Argentina, Uruguay, Ecuador and Peru stand at the brink; indeed, the continued
status of these countries as "slave-states" in the American New
World Order System is being preserved only by subterfuge, rigged elections
and brute force. That's certainly true of Colombia where the central government
is fighting a losing battle with the FARC, and is being maintained in power
only by the clandestine presence of 10,000 U.S. troops who are pretending
to fight the drug trade while really fighting the socialist forces of the
And then there is the
ultimate nightmare for the U.S. elites: the loss of Mexico to a socialist
upheaval, which is a very real possibility given the growing number of political
districts in the south of Mexico that have declared themselves "autonomous"
from the central government's control; there is also the very real possibility
that the upcoming elections in Mexico could sweep both the PAN and the PRI
from power and place the government in Mexico into the hands of declared socialists,
which has already happened in Mexico City.
The very real fact of
the matter is, the U.S. elites are holding onto their ill-gotten gains in
Latin America by a mere thread - and that thread is unrestricted IMMIGRATION
of Latin America's "excess population" to the United States. If
that thread is broken, there will be an EXPLOSION - and the only way
to contain it will be through the use of BRUTAL and utterly INHUMANE
military force - and the sons and daughters of America's middle-class will
be conscripted to fight this bloody war. For average Americans to think that
the American elites will allow the people of Latin America to "confiscate"
their property in Latin America without a fight is naïve at best, and just
plain stupid at worst.
On the other hand, should
the legislation in the Senate prevail allowing the continued unrestricted
flow of "economic refugees" from the south to continue, it could
lead to a populist EXPLOSION in the United States. It should be said,
however, in this connection that, given the degree to which the American elites
control the mass media, all the organs of the government, and the police forces
of the country, it is highly doubtful that - in the end - this explosion could
not be contained, though racial violence would continue to simmer just below
What it would mean,
however, is the EXTREME PAUPERIZATION of America's older, white, native-born
workers; a situation where millions and millions of heretofore middle-class
workers are dumped out of the middle-class into a black hole of economic despair
where bankruptcy as a means of escape from their problems is no longer an
option, where there is little or no health care, where both husbands and wives
are forced to work not just one job, but sometimes two and even three jobs
just to put a roof over their heads, put food on the table and pay the electric
and gas bills; where they are ghettoized much as poor blacks are now ghettoized
as "trailer park trash;" and where the ability to meet bills, foreclosure,
repossessions, lost credit, etc. are a reality of daily life.
The fact is, thousands
- indeed, millions - of middle-class, blue-collar workers are being displaced
by immigrant labor - in the construction industry, in the services industry,
and even in well-heeled major corporations. Only a quarter of those laid off
will ever again find similar well-paying jobs. Welcome to downward mobility.
Kiss the credit cards goodbye. Everybody in the family works - your spouse,
your kids. Several years ago, Business Week describes what happened
to one such worker: Allen S.:
"Several years ago Allen had a steady annual income of $50,000 … [as
a blue-collar worker] in West Hartford, Conn., and a marriage of 14 years
… Two days before Christmas three years ago, Allen was laid off ... Despite
good outplacement help, intense networking, dozens of interviews, and hundreds
of resumes mailed, Allen has yet to find permanent work. He divorced, worked
for minimum wage in the stockroom of a Marshalls Inc. discount store, and
lost $13,000 of his savings starting up his ... (own business). Early this
year, his ... (home) was foreclosed and auctioned off. He owes the IRS $22,000
in back taxes and penalties because he withdrew his 401(k) retirement funds
early. Several months ago, he sold his camcorder, photocopier, and fax machine
to pay bills. Today, Allen lives on ... Social Security disability. He has
no medical insurance ... ‘I have lost the fight to stay ahead in today’s economy’,
he says. ‘I was determined to find work, but as the months and years wore
on, depression set in. You can only be rejected so many times; then you start
questioning your own self-worth’."
And it’s not only Allen
S.; it’s people like Larry W. and Belinda S. Both used to work at a glass
company in Pennsylvania. But both lost their jobs in a very circuitous fashion
to immigrant labor several years ago. Larry now works part time at a marine-supply
store. His wife works in a sewing factory making about $6 an hour. When he
lost his job, Larry refinanced his mortgage on the family home and has been
draining his savings ever since just to stay afloat. Jobs that paid the $15
an hour at the glass company simply don’t exist any more. Belinda S. also
was forced to go back to work - as a nursing home aide making minimum wage
- far below the wage she had been earning at the glass company
Alarmed at this trend,
economist Paul Glastris reports that - as a result of immigrant labor - American
workers are finding themselves reduced to the same status that the laboring
class in Latin America finds itself - AND DO THE AMERICAN ELITES CARE?
NO! - NOT AT ALL. They're more than happy to wave the flag and send the
sons and daughters of Middle America off to war in defense of their vast,
world-wide holdings, while at the same time shipping the jobs of their "fellow
Americans" "offshore," and bringing vast amounts of illegal
immigrant labor into the country to break their unions and put downward pressure
on their wages.
Such an outcome cannot
help but produce a fascist mindset in the American people. Fascism is a phenomenon
that takes root in men and women who feel they are being thwarted from their
legitimate worldly destiny by "lesser people." In Germany,
where race-thinking became official doctrine for more than a decade, the surrender
of the German people - even German Christians - to the appeal of racism originated
in despair - a despair born in the belief that they were in danger of being
overrun by "lesser people," particularly people from the east (just
as today white Americans feel threatened by "brown" Latinos streaming
up from the south, black Haitians washing ashore on the beaches in Florida.
Put simply, FASCISM IS AN ALTERNATIVE TO MADNESS FOR PEOPLE WHO FEEL BALKED
IN WHAT THEY CONSIDER TO BE THEIR LEGITIMATE WORLDLY AMBITIONS. It is
a faith rooted in the consciousness of a thwarted self-worth and confirmed
by the Tertullian principle of "Certum est quia impossible."
Are you a disappointed
person? Do you feel that you have been thwarted from the worldly destiny
you feel is legitimately yours? Do you believe that America is in danger of
being "overrun" by "lesser people?" Do these things anger
you? If you answer yes to any of these questions, then you are a candidate
for fascism! - AND THAT'S THE TRUTH OF THE MATTER; one race raging
against another; each claiming God to be on their side. And it's coming! And
insofar as America is concerned, it's coming soon as a result of the very
dynamic we have been talking about here - an "action-reaction spiral"
of one ethnic group "raging" against another. That's what the Bible
means when it says that -
"... nation (ethnos) shall rise against nation (ethnos), and kingdom
against kingdom ..." (Luke 21:10)
YOU DON'T REALLY BELEVE?
You say that such fears
are misplaced? Oh, really? Well consider what the late R.J. Rushdoony, the
Karl Marx, so to speak, of today's "dominionist Christianity" in
the United States, has to say about the minority communities. For example,
take what Rushdoony has to say about the necessity of maintaining the purity
of the white race. In The Institutions, he writes:
"Clearly history has witnessed genetic deterioration. Selective breeding
in (white) Christian countries has led to a degree to the progressive elimination
of many defective persons (i.e., people of mixed race) ..."
On blacks, Rushdoony
"The white man has behind him centuries of Christian culture and the
discipline and selective breeding this faith requires [and heaven only knows
where he got such an idea, certainly not from the Bible, maybe from some genetic
handbook left behind at Aushwitz by Joseph Mengele - editor] ... The Negro
is a product of a radically different past, and his heredity has been governed
by radically different consideration."
"The background of Negro culture is African and magic ... Voodoo, or
magic, was the religion and life of American Negroes. Voodoo songs underlie
jazz, and old voodoo, with its power goal, has been merely replaced with revolutionary
voodoo, a modernized power drive." [And notice here, Rushdoony - in using
the word, "revolutionary" - is plainly playing to the fears of whites
that blacks are out to get them.]
On black slavery, Rushdoony
"The law (i.e., the "law" that Rushdoony and his cohorts would
set up in their idealized "Christian state") here is humane and
also unsentimental. It recognizes that some people (i.e., blacks and "lesser
sorts") are by nature slaves and will always be so. It both requires
that they be dealt with in a godly manner and also that the slave recognize
his position and accept it with grace."
AND ALL THIS FROM
THE FATHER OF AMERICAN DOMINIONISM! And
if Rushdoony could say this about blacks, he certainly would have no compulsion
in saying it about Latinos.
David Chilton, another
Reconstructionist, believes that "... even Southern Slavery was not as
unbiblical as many have charged." Chilton argues that slaves should be
well tended and eventually freed if they are Christian. [What does
that mean? - that whites have the right to hold people who are not Christians
in slavery. The multinationals would love that. That would certainly end their
perennial search for "cheap labor." And you can imagine how the
multinationals would treat evangelists if "conversion" eventually
meant that they would have to "free their slaves." That would certainly
be bad for business.]
HOW WIDESPREAD IS THIS THINKING?
And just how wide-spread
is Rushdoony's ideals in the evangelical community today? - very widespread,
indeed. Rushdoony appeared frequently on Pat Robertson's 700 Club,
according to Christianity Today and The Wall Street Journal.
Gary North, another Reconstructionist, has also appeared numerous times on
the 700 Club. Both North and Rushdoony have been repeat guests on televangelist
and religious right organizer D. James Kennedy's television broadcasts, and
Kennedy has called their biblical commentaries "essential" works.
The Traditional Values
Coalition and Citizens for Excellence in Education have advertised "Rutherford
Institute Seminars" in which Rushdoony was a featured speaker - along
with Rutherford Institute founder John Whitehead. Rushdoony was described
in the advertisement as a "theologian ... who represents scriptural framework
for building orderly structures in society ..."
Herbert Titus, the founding
dean of Pat Robertson's Regent University Law School, has said that the school
has used Rushdoony's and Gary North's works as course texts. Regent public
policy professor Joseph Kickasola has written for a Rushdoony publication.
Kickasola and Regent adjunct professor Gary Amos were teamed with Rushdoonyites
David Chilton and Peter Leithart, among others, in a three-day theological
debate - "The National Dialogue on the Kingdom of God."
While many evangelicals
say they don't agree with such beliefs, they continue to welcome them at their
conferences and hire them in their seminaries. For example, George Grant,
a notorious Reconstructionist, is a very sought-after speaker at Christian
Coalition conferences. Grant's work was part of a series of four reconstructionist
tracts edited by North that Jerry Falwell, a leading evangelical, has described
as "a tool Christians need" for the difficulties "that confront
This is just the tip
of the iceberg - and you say that there is no reason for the minority community
to be afraid of the Religious Right? I would be if I were in their shoes -
and so would you!!
AN IRRESISTABLE DYNAMIC
As racial radicalization
continues down its dogged and inflexible course, white evangelicals are ever
more being drawn into this kind of thinking. You say that won't happen to
you. Oh, really? - well that's what countless numbers of good German Christians
said about Hitler's race politics. When push came to shove, what happened
to them? RACIAL RADICALIZATION MAKES MONSTERS OUT OF US ALL - AND ALL IN
THE NAME OF GOD!
What is God's answer
to all this for American Christians? The Bible says:
"Flee out of the midst of Babylon, and deliver every man his soul: be
not cut off in her iniquity; for this is the time of the LORD’S vengeance;
he will render unto her a recompence." (Jeremiah 51:6)
Hurry! Hurry! - your
soul is at stake!
God bless you all!
