Russia started attacking ISIS and the Al Qaeda linked Jihadists less than two weeks ago. Iraq and Afghanistan have already asked for Putin’s help. The world has caught on to the fact that the US funded both Al Qaeda and ISIS. It has been against American law since 9-11-2001 for Americans to give aid to Al Qaeda. Yet our State Department has been buying white 4 wheel drive Toyota trucks with US Special Forces style gun mounts that wound up with ISIS in Iraq. Yesterday while Russia was bombing ISIS and other Jihadist terrorists, two US F-16s bombed a Syrian power station near Aleppo killing innocent civilians just like they did at that hospital in Afghanistan.
Humorists seized the obvious fact that Russia has rescued us from the evil ISIS Boogeyman so why not fire the TSA gropers, bring back the Bill of Rights and get rid of the jerks in law enforcement who think 911 gave them the right to abuse the public? There are a series of memes below capitalizing on that theme. I would hope you share your favorites.
But I also want to challenge you to create some new memes. Post them in the comments section so we can learn from each other and see what works best. This tyranny has to go. The middle class will be destroyed if we don’t. Working people and pensioners in America could soon be dying from starvation.
Here are a few suggestions: Catherine Austin Fitts said Wall Street stole $40 trillion and will steal tens of trillions more. Can anyone in Washington say Enough? Who Dares to Say No to Bankers?
In the 1930s 3 million Americans starved to death. We now have more bank fraud and more Unpayable Debts but we also have 2 1/2 times as many people. Message to the Bankers: We are not willing to starve to death for you again.
Suggest other wording and other themes. We need to get a creative spark going before someone in Washington does something Crazy.
Here are several memes driving the same point home to different audiences. I selected the first because I remember a story in the news about a California Sheriff’s Department that put video cameras in the girls shower at the high schools to protect them from terrorists. And another about a school in Pennsylvania that used the camera on student lap tops to spy on teenagers in their bedrooms. Years ago parents would have said No. But this fear of ISIS and of the National Security State that rose up after the Oklahoma City bombing and 911 has crippled our national psyche.
The government is spying on us 24/7 but they do not seem to be able to catch either terrorists or criminals.
I have heard so many stories about cops kicking women who are 6 months pregnant and about people being shot dead because they had a power tool in their hands working in their yard or on their cars. Enough with those police training programs in Israel teaching cops to treat Americans like Palestinians.
I normally don’t watch TV news but I saw a story about a pervert who attempted to grope a couple of 14 year-old girls at their school. The cops caught him. What the local station needed was an editorial saying that if that man had gotten a job for the TSA he could have groped those young girls, their sisters and their mothers.
Did you ever wonder why there is so much Internet crime from ransom ware to Identity theft? Did you ever ask yourself why the NSA doesn’t track down cyber criminals? Did you ever stop to wonder why the Fourth Amendment protection against unlawful seizure of our papers does not seem to apply to our computers?
I heard an interview over Internet radio with an American who was fluent in German and had worked as a translator for the government before going into business. The image of Americans has been so degraded by Presidents Bush and Obama that he decided years ago that when he travels to Europe to tell people he is a German. We need to end the tyranny before we are all ashamed of ourselves and of our country.
Zacarias Moussaoui was waterboarded 183 times but did not confess. The American interrogators got their knowingly false confession but only after they threatened to torture his children. I can remember a time when it was illegal to torture children and also illegal to use those confessions as evidence in a trial. No more. It is time to get our pride back.
I am fortunate that I do not go to school in the modern era. I can remember studying American history and the Bill of Rights. What do they do nowadays? Tell the students that people who believe in the Bill of Rights are racists and homophobes?
Finally, I want to give credit to Mike Rivero at http://www.whatreallyhappened.com who posted these memes. They need to be shared. The map below might indicate the original author actually lives in the East Bay across from San Francisco. I was born in Oakland but grew up in San Francisco. I did not create these memes.
Please feel free to use the comments section below to contribute more memes and other satires to take down the tyranny.
