Embracing Slavery in America
A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet
Well, here we are. I honestly thought, indeed, I HOPED, I'd not live long enough to see my country, the USA, become a dictatorship. But, as I said, here we are.
those of my generation, who actually remember what freedom was like,
what America was like as a truly free country, it has been stunning at
how quickly America transformed from a constitutional representative
republic to, well, whatever form of Marxist dictatorship we are
suffering under today. The speed of America;s devolution has been
Even more remarkable, for me at least, was the lack of resistance. None! We just sat back and allowed it to happen.
And then I saw a couple of young Americans on a cable news channel just the other day
debating whether the US Constitution ought to be scrapped. Again, I
was stunned, blind-sided, by the utter stupidity of the conversation in
which those young Americans -- with all their college degrees and a
string of alphabet letters attached to their names -- were engaged. It
My father used to tell me, "Son," he'd say. "There is NO FOOL like an educated fool!" How right Pop was.
looked at them and thought: "These are mere children! What do they
know of life? What do they know of taking up arms in defense of the
constitution? What do they know of freedom? They have never
experienced the freedom I have as an American. And yet, there they were
postulating their theory that the constitution was too old, outdated,
it no longer fit the modern American people, and it just had to go.
I thought, are the people who voted for Obama. Dumb as a post --
unable to locate their own posterior with both hands, a GPS -- AND -- a
I slid forward, onto the edge of my chair, and
watched and listened with rapt attention to the noises emanating from
those day care drop outs. The more I listened the more I became
convinced that all is lost. There is no hope when America's future is
to be placed in the hands of such incredibly ignorant people.
is it possible to even think America could exist without our the
constitution? Heck, it's all we can do to exist WITH the constitution.
Remove it, and the country collapses into something unrecognizable.
That, I am willing to bet, is exactly what those who would dump our constitution want.
DO see where they are headed with their argument, don't you? I am
convinced they are a part of the global governance movement. These are
the folks who want a one-world government. No countries -- just one
great global community ruled by one great world dictator -- preferably
the United Nations.
As long as we bumpkins
in America insist on holding onto our founding documents, the
Constitution and the Bill of Rights, they cannot collapse America and
fold it into that amorphous Pangea-like blob of Terra bound humanity.
youngsters, having already learned to embrace slavery to the state, are
the "Useful Idiots" of the one-worlders, the global governance crowd.
The gray beards in the movement are dispatching the kids out into the
minefield to explode the ordinance and clear a path for their wisen
heads to advance their plans for what would amount to a slave planet.
decades our public education system in America, up to and including our
colleges and universities, (which we laughingly refer to as
institutions of "higher learning") have been indoctrinating our young in
the way their masters would have them go. The scriptures tell us that
" ... as the twig is bent, so growth the tree." Look at all the bent,
warped, trees around us today, in our schools, in our universities, in
our government, and yes, even in our churches. Get 'em when they are
young, indoctrinate 'em when they are young -- and you've got them
forever! Works every time.
For half a century, America's
schools have been indoctrinating our young in the ways of a "global
citizen." That differs mightily from the way schools taught when I was
a young student.
We were taught "good citizenship" as AMERICANS.
classroom had a US flag and at the beginning of each day we all stood
and faced that flag, placed our hands over our hearts, and recited the
Pledge of Allegiance to the flag of the United States of America. We
were citizens of America. We couldn't have cared less for Pangea,
Laurasia and Gondwanaland, or some kind of one-world government held
together by ignorance, fear, and armed force.
Today we are told
that was all wrong. They tell us now that we were taught "nationalism"
and nationalism is dangerous. That, dear reader, is total "bovine
Heck, yeah, I'm a nationalist. I am an AMERICAN nationalist.
Nationalism is love of country and the willingness to sacrifice for
it. Nationalism, for me, also means that I believe that America's
national culture and the interests of America are superior to any
nationalism explains why I despise the United Nations. You see,
nationalism is the doctrine that nations should act independently
(rather than collectively) to attain their goals. I believe that.
Therefore, I have absolutely no use for the United Nations, NONE. I
make no apologies and no excuses for it.
Nationalism has also been described as the aspiration for national independence felt by people under foreign domination.
I'll put my American nationalism up against their one-world, global
governance, "citizen-of-the-world" nonsense any day of the week. I have
no intention of surrendering the national identity of America and
constitutional authority of my fellow American citizens to a world
But first they must make us believe that our
Constitution and our Bill of Rights are both irrelevant and
dysfunctional. How do they do that? By brain washing our kids in those
indoctrination centers we refer to as public schools.
slavery is so simple and so easy for millions of America's young today
because they -- ONE: have never been free (in comparison to earlier
generations of Americans) -- and TWO: it's what they have been taught.
Plus, they have been taught it is their duty, their obligation, to
proselytize, to convert others to their warped sense of adoration for
"involuntary servitude" to the state.
I agree with Kurt Nimmo's comments in a recent article in which he said:
" ... the average American knows almost nothing about the Constitution
and certainly nothing about republicanism, liberty and inalienable
Far too many Americans know virtually nothing
about classical liberalism, the ideal of limited government, and the
unbridled liberty of individuals including freedom of religion, speech,
press, assembly, and free markets." SOURCE: http://theintelhub.com/2011/06/22/fareed-zakaria-dump-the-constitution/
of us who still love America, and place her first amongst all the
nations of the earth are being leaned upon, coerced, if you will, to
learn to love the new slavery, the cradle to grave government intrusion
into our lives, every waking (and sleeping) moment. To them -- this IS freedom!
learning curve is far too steep for this old conservative curmudgeon
and it will be a cold day in warmer climes when they break down my
heartfelt, and to-the-core, nationalism for America.
