Most people -- and that includes Americans --- gain their impression of the US and 'what it means to be American' from the media. Most of us --
even if we don't remember it -- gained our impressions of the US and 'American life' from tv and movies: American War Movies, American Wild West
movies, American situation comedies. In those movies and tv shows, Americans have always portrayed themselves as heroic, generous, god-fearing,
good-looking, fair, just, defenders of the weak and fearless lions when confronting the 'bad guys'.
According to American tv and movies, one American is equal to a hundred 'bad guys'. We see the American hero --- impossibly outnumbered and losing
pints of blood per second from multiple gun-shot and stab wounds -- fight his way through dozens of bad-guys. The American hero's bullets never
miss. In fact, if American movies and tv are to be believed, one American bullet is capable of passing through and killing at least ten 'bad guys'
at once. The American always wins, in these movies and tv shows. He saves the old, the poor, the children and the dog. He grins bravely at the end,
his perfect teeth blazing white against his tanned skin. We sigh in relief, knowing another wonderful, decent, kind yet rugged American has saved the
In American movies and situation comedies, American houses are filled with huge rooms and lovely furnishings. The American Dad is always so wonderful
towards the kids, the neighbours, his wife and friends. The American mothers are always so beautifully dressed, so kind and patient and so filled
with wisdom and humour. The American neighbourhoods look so wonderful, the streets so wide and filled with trees, kind neighbours, beautiful lawns,
cars, kids on bikes. The American police are so decent and brave. The American government is portrayed as benevolent, ethical, courageous, caring,
upstanding, herioc. I mean, what about those GREAT guys in the MIB movies --- how could ANYone ever be afraid of ANYthing when the MIB are there to
save the world ? Look at Steve Martin in those 'father' roles he plays, or Dianne Keaton as the mother. How about Robert De Niro in the Meet the
Parents movies -- he's ex-CIA; he's spent his entire career protecting America and its people -- what a guy; brave and funny to boot. Or maybe you
prefer all those American college movies, where the girls are all blonde and sweet and funny and the guys are all handsome and idiotic (but underneath
we just know that they're going to turn into Mr.Brady, or Robert De Niro, or American CIA or honest-lawyers or even Presidents, once they've
finished fooling around in college).
In the post-WW2 years, the movies (and later the tv shows) were dominated by stories of how the US 'saved the world' and made it safe for all
mankind. America's economy boomed after both world wars. And for those who believe America 'gave' other nations anything, let it be added that
the US continues to receive 'repayments' from all those countries. That's right: none of it was free. America made a fortune out of both world
wars, just as it's making a fortune out of the wars it's currently involved in. America was selling armaments to Germany AND to the UK during WW2
-- that's what George W Bush's grandfather Prescott was busted over: he was selling bullets to Germany which were used to kill American (and other
After the war, Americans had never had it so good. They made movies and tv shows which minimised the efforts of all other nations or portrayed them
as 'evil' or inept. American movies portrayed Americans alone as the 'heroes' and 'good guys'. The majority of returning American military
gilded the lily when it came to recounting their war-time experiences. They didn't tell their children about the tens of thousands of German
prisoners of war who were deliberately starved to death, for example. They didn't tell their wives about the women and little girls they'd
'liberated' (code for raped) in Europe. They didn't tell anyone about the needless cruelties and indignities they'd inflicted 'over there' in
Europe and the Pacific. Nor did they mention the children they'd fathered and deserted, all over the world. No, they were greeted home as heroes
and the movies portrayed them as such and didn't bother with little things like the truth.
Japanese orphans, with the skin scorched from 90% of their bodies and their parents, grandparents, siblings and friends reduced to steam by the
bombing of Hiroshima .. or the children of Vietnam, with their skin hanging from them in strips from American bombing --- saw all those impossibly
wonderful movies that Americans make about themselves. Those children had never seen such wonderful homes and lifestyles as shown in those movies.
The orphans loved the Brady Bunch. How wonderful it must be in America, they thought, where everything is clean and everyone has so much to eat, so
many lovely things to wear. All over the world, in the aftermath of WW2, people went to the movies to escape the misery and grief of their lives.
And Americans watched the same movies -- for the same reasons. Because a lot of Americans weren't having such a great time of it either: a lot of
them never have and never will.
So that became the pattern: wage a war, waste entire countries ... and to make all the ugly truths fade away, all you have to do is RE-WRITE history:
turn the truth on its head: portray yourselves as heroes: blame everyone else .... and INSIST, in schools, in the media and in history books -- that
YOU are the 'good guys', ALWAYS. Then make another movie to show how great you are.
The truth is, if little American kids had been raised in another country (Iraq for example) they would see the US for what it really is. They would
be so disappointed in the US and in Americans generally. Just as the world right now is so disillusioned and disappointed in the US and Americans.
The REALITY of the US and Americans does not match -- does not live up to -- all the American propaganda as shown repeatedly in tv and movies.
Heroes are supposed to defend. Heroes are supposed to be just and fair. Heroes do NOT invade small countries and murder and rape the populace and
strip the museums of their priceless art, or shoot old people in the street for target practice, or torture and sodomise people for fun --- and
video-tape it so they can have a chuckle about it with their heroic American buddies later. WHERE are the movies that show Americans doing that?
Where are the movies which show Bruce Willis and John Wayne and Arnie, sticking a nightstick up the anus of a thirteen year old boy? Where are the
'light, situation comedies' that show Steve Martin forcing little girls to have sex while their grandmothers are beaten into silence in the mud?
Where are THOSE American movies?
Where are the movies to show American politicians sitting in luxurious surroundings with zionist pigs, enjoying the best foods and drinks that the
American tax-payer can provide ... as they plan which country to invade, rape and destroy next? Who makes THOSE movies .... Michael Moore is about
the only person in the US who dares even hint at the reality of what's going on.
But who can blame the average American ... not me. Because *IF* I'd been raised in America: * IF * I'd watched all those 'American Hero' and
'America is the best and ONLY place on the planet' movies and tv shows: *IF* I'd been indoctrinated in falsehoods from birth onwards --- then I'd
probably believe the lies too (or would try to) the way a lot of Americans apparently do.
There are close to 6 billion of us on the planet, being dictated and lied to by a handful of genuinely 'evil-doers'. How do they get away with it,
you might ask. Well, all you need do in order to understand, is remember how it was at school. Remember all the competition against other schools
and other teams? If you were in an average school, you would have known nothing about it at first, until the need to compete was instilled in you.
Then you would have been told that this or that school was the lifelong 'enemy' of your own school. You would have been encouraged to believe your
school 'had to' beat other schools, for the sake of your own school's 'honour' and 'tradition'. In the same way, as a child, you were taught
(whether or not you remember it) that your COUNTRY had to compete against all other nations. And you were taught that YOUR school and YOUR country
were 'the best', the most worthy, the one with God on its side. And because you were young, you bought this rubbish and you believed it. Which is
how 'they' wanted you to feel, because 'they' plan wars years in advance and ONE day, 'they' wanted to be able to manipulate you and your
emotions and insecurity and instilled-competitiveness .... in order 'they' could send YOUR body into war. And in order your parents would accept
your return in a body-bag without too much complaint.
It's called 'Divide and Conquer' and it's the game the few have always played upon the many.
So how do a HANDFUL of evil-doers manage to control SIX BILLION people? Easy. They tell them lies, they instill division and competition. They
persuade all the separate groups that they are ALL 'in the right'. And then they turn all the groups against each other .... and the handful of
evil-doers sit back to watch the fun and reap the profits.
Those handful of evil-doers are able to manipulate and control millions of people in much the same way a school principal is able to control two
thousand pupils. It's not difficult if you brainwash those pupils from early infancy; if you instill in them rigid, inflexible beliefs and attitudes
and insist that they all compete against each other; for 'grades', for 'honour', for 'a chance at a better future'. Once that's done, the
pupils control themselves, according to the blueprint instilled in them by the principal and his staff. Presidents and prime ministers are the
principals. Politicians and heads of military play the role of the principal's staff.
It's not only Americans who act like school children. We all do, to some extent. And our world leaders and religious leaders sit back in luxury and
laugh as they pull our strings. The string they're pulling at the moment is FEAR. They are encouraging us to be AFRAID that 'bad guys' are going
to hurt us. And like morons, we all shake in our boots and decide (as we've been programmed to do) that WE will hurt others before THEY can hurt us.
Except we have NO reason to believe that others EVER intended to hurt us at all. Instead, we've *all* been USED by our leaders (and religious
leaders) to fight THEIR fight, to hurt people we don't even know, so that our LEADERS can grow richer and more powerful.
Aren't we dumb, huh ?
