Nary

Nary

A shot was fired

Meanwhile an

Out of touch

Uneducated

Myself included

Populace

Has succumbed

To

Losing its dignity

Not to a

Foreign power

Or an

Oppressive regime

Merely

Greed and consumption

Deceit and distraction

Patriotism and subjugation

Nihilism and nationalism

Almost collectively

In lock step

With the

Party

And the

Party’s slogans

*     WAR IS PEACE

  FREEDOM IS SLAVERY

IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH

And finally

A whimpering cry

down with big brother

down with big brother

down wit……awe #uck it

As the masses

Stare blankly

At the telescreens

Getting

Reality rations

Of

Regurgitated rhetoric

From a

Republican racist

Claiming no collusion

Which may

Or not be the case

However

He is definitely

Playing deep

From a

Propaganda playbook

Otherwise

Why would you care

Save the

At will

Personal sadism

To manifest

Destructive agita

When

If you simply

Turned off

The radio and TV

Hugged a family member

Asked them

About

Their day

Checked to see

If they’re okay

Cherish them

Also

Be kinder

To someone that

Doesn’t look like you

Or speaks differently

That believes in a

Different invisible

Bogeyman

Than you

Learn to

Appreciate

Their point of view

Despite all the

Hifalutin egotistical

Narcissistic thoughts

Of your/our/my

Self aggrandized

Importance

*

WAR IS PEACE

Attacking Syria for attacking their people

WTF?

FREEDOM IS SLAVERY

“You have to stand proudly for the National Anthem or you shouldn’t be playing. You shouldn’t be there. Maybe you shouldn’t be in the country,”
– Donald Trump

Having taken a dangerous and circuitous route to essentially and nearly irrevocably outlaw flag burning. As a similar use of a nonviolent protest such as the * “taking of a knee”

To bring attention to the indiscriminate brutality and unpunished murder by a few members in a group of government paid (your tax dollars at work “to protect and serve” ?) employees.

By another group that has an albeit public yet distractive forum to highlight how some of our fellow space travelers are systematically being injured and killed by state power simply because they can. **

It is as if, that pathetic police protocol of pistol popping gets a pre-pardon from punishment while perturbed and perplexed pallbearers perpetually plant their people.

Whose only offense is having an epidermis pigmentation that reflects less light.

IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH

***

Proven by who is in the white house
Who should probably realize……..

.”More people watch football, then vote for President.”

– Joe Rogan

*
In youth sports, players take a knee when another player is hurt. It is an acknowledgment of the vulnerable humanity that, for the moment, has been obscured by the intense competition of the game. Taking a knee in that context is, like a religious genuflection, a gesture of self-surrender before the greater reality of human suffering.

//

Likewise, when black players take a knee during the national anthem to protest police violence against African-Americans, they are making a gesture of pain and distress.

They are putting America in a more honest context — our “Star-Spangled Banner” dimly seen through the mists of deep injury. It is like flying an American flag upside down in a moment of emergency.

“First they came for the Socialists, (Blacks) and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist (Black).

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, (Immigrants) and I did not speak out. Because I was not a Trade Unionists. An (Immigrant).

Then they came for the Jews, (Muslims) and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew. (Muslim).

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.”

“Hello…..

Is anybody

Home???”

*** “Stopping Trump is a short-term solution.

The long-term solution, and it will be more difficult, is fixing the educational system that has created so many people ignorant enough to vote for Trump.”

– Andy Borowitz
