The most important town hall meetings, café coffee discussions, or instruction, learning, discussion of any type taking place today in the United States are in the comments sections of Memory Hole Blog and Veterans Today.
I have never joined in before, except to listen. I had a thought the other day and just would like to ask MHB readers what they think. If you go here you will find a map entitled “History Is A Weapon, Guerilla War in the United States 1965-1970.” http://www.historyisaweapon.com/defcon2/domguemap.html Hover your cursor over the marks and get details of many anti-government attacks in the United States 1965-70. Go here and see many people still in United States prisons for actions (violent) taken against the United States military and government. http://www.thejerichomovement.com/prisoners.html I guess I have more than one question, but anyway, the first one:
Given what we know of fake terror events in recent years, are we to assume that all these events were organic?
Here is something from Fr. Daniel Berrigan, who knew something about the political protest scene in those days. “I have a very great sense that there is going to be much more sabotage and that the government itself is inducing it.” – Fr. Daniel Berrigan, interview with Scanlan’s Monthly while underground for burning draft files at Catonsville, published January 1971 issue “Guerilla War in the U.S.A.” But when you search through those photos and names and descriptions on the Jericho Movement website you will see “In Prison 20 years,” In Prison 38 years,” 33 years, 41 years, and it goes on and on. So, these folks are for real. Second question:
Why are almost all of those people from the ‘60s and ‘70s, that era?
Is it because we have lost heart? I asked Jim Fetzer about this. His response:
Mike, Nixon ended the draft and the consequences have been enormous. Most families no longer care about issues of war and peace because they know that, whatever happens, their children will not be affected. There were real reasons for the young to resist. Now they don’t care. Jim
There were also leftist bombings, leftists fighting back in the earlier part of the century and beyond: the 1920 Wall Street bombing, Haymarket Square bombing in 1886, Palmer Raids begin in July 1919 in response to alleged anarchist bombings in April and June of government officials, businessmen and law enforcement officials, including the home of Attorney General Alexander Palmer in Washington, D.C. It just seems to me kind of strange — all those people in jail for real resistance from decades ago. None now, and all now are false flag events. And of course, there is always the question of violence versus non-violence. But my questions here are more about the motivation, of moving, getting off the sofa, out the door, down the street. I don’t advocate violence, bombing, but I would also have to insert that to contemplate such is to choose to become more deeply involved than when joining a march, with one pretty much guaranteed of being back in time for the pizza and beer celebration. We don’t have that now, except phony FBI traps that purport to have prevented terror events, when actually it is they who conduct the whole exercise. I guess I am just amazed when I see these people, their photos, their descriptions, and beside it says “33 years in prison,” “40 years in prison.” They might say they are political prisoners, prisoners of war. Class-war, ideological warfare. We could decide to say they belong there because they hurt people, stole money. And we can also wonder what we would think of them if they were now in power rather than in prison. Did Franklin, Washington, Jefferson, Paine consider killing and theft beyond their reach, things they would not do to obtain “freedom.” We could choose to say that non-violence is the only way to go.
But how can we go forward without any thought to those who are STILL in prison for revolution, fighting against America, as we also say we are.
That’s all I got, look forward to hearing your thoughts.
