The Israeli government hatched a plan to offer Israeli college students grants if they tweet pro-Israeli propaganda. What desperation! We know Israel has long had sites where this has been happening. But to plan to expand it throughout the university system! My Gosh! The things money can do!
Folks in America that need rights, Hello, copy the Israeli government’s dirty strategies! Morality and decency aren’t going to get you anywhere in a culture where corruption is valorized. You have to be corrupt to get rights just like everybody else within this paradigm of dishonesty. The reason many of you are so fucked up is because you are too hungry for honesty when your humanity is under siege; you are too damn honest, you are too proper, too decent while your lives are taken from you.
Me TOO. I’m fucked up! But I am sick and tired of being proper when marginalized peoples are ethnically cleansed in the Middle East. Sick and tired of America’s continued act of waging CIA-government-destabilization programs on democracies in Latin America, a fact that is not widely told as Americans are schooled to believe they have rights to label places like Russia, China, Iran and others as demons.
How you doing, America? Since you can’t see for yourself, follow me and look in your own backyard! Can’t you taste the piles of shit and severed fingers in the food you’ve been cooking? Can’t you smell the filth of screaming dead memories you don’t want to acknowledge? Can’t you discern that your seas aren’t blue, but full-blown bloody red with floating bones and dead consciences?
I’m sick and tired of being decent! I have a dick and I was trained to feel ashamed to admit that I put extra-virgin olive oil on it and jerk it to keep my sanity to keep me out of prison. I have my pussy and I am ashamed to tell others to follow me and look with a mirror into its prettiness to keep its healthiness.
We preach, we testify, we prophesy, and we teach others to be upright, to be a moral example in order to realize successes and dreams. But we know a truth: Corruption is just as valuable as decency. We, however, never admit this out loud.
Admitting it will make us feel corrupt, and we will get increased scrutiny from others who are lost in denial that most of the people and institutions we elect to serve us are corrupt. And most of the legislation we hope will lift away our social, cultural, racial and gender shackles were negotiated with the tongues and tools of corrupt men and women.
We are surrounded, penetrated, policed, praised, divided, rewarded, and united by tools of corruption. Yet the default logic on our tongues remains the same—a looking down upon corruption and its power to liberate oppressed peoples. In many ways, our looking down is really a looking into landscapes of lies, a looking away from truth that tells how fucked up our society is and how we have been rewarding systems of corruption, and energetically so.
The America government is one of the most corrupt countries, which are all corrupt. But America likes to act as though it is the holier than thou. Yet I love American, and consequently take time to remind America of its crooked body, its shortness of breath, its one sided heartbeat, its dementia, its stained cannibal teeth, and stories of its brutal tides.
It acquired its power from corruption slaughters, hijackings, destabilizing Third World countries, labeling radicals for freedom as terrorists, and well-organized propaganda machines that control schools’ curriculum, media gate-keeping, publishing trends and books, and the who is who of histories.
With all that evidence, oppressed groups in America think they can fight the oligarch and plutocratic American machinery by playing clean. They think they can fight the gunman with talk about morality and non-violence. They have been trained to demonize power brokers like the Black Panther Party members without realizing that the violent force of the Panthers was the very thing that counteracted the KKK and forced America to begin to acknowledge the peaceful voice of persons like Martin Luther King Jr.
If Americans hadn’t seen the Panther’s violence, they would not have seen King’s peacefulness. That is why I will NEVER oppose gun ownership, because gun ownership was never a serious issue in America until the ’60s when members of the Panther Party decided to use it for the same ends that KKK and the police were using it. I don’t care whether or not the NRA benefits from wider gun ownership, I care about poor folks having the right to own guns like wealthy people, and using that right when needs be to defend themselves against foreigners, country men, or corrupt agents of the state.
Even to this day, some people have issues with the hero Malcolm X, because they cannot understand that America had no choice but to put the reputation of the brave Martin Luther King Jr. in a cultural chariot just so Americans could demonize Malcolm X’s wisdom: an eye for a motherfucking eye! Here corruption is evidenced in the brutal media and educational machinery that still continue to cast Malcolm as a champion of violence rather than as a warrior for American states in which people of color could reside in peace.
Times changed. Strategies must change too. Sure, we can still claim victories from marching and holding placards, but we need to become corrupt to fight for group solidarity and equality. As I see it, “strategically savvy” is the euphemism that usually introduces the concept of corruptness. But now is not the time for me to be pretty with the corrupt politics of rhetoric, because I feel dirty today. My mouth feels stink. I even feel to wash my battyhole in public right now.
Marginalize groups must become corrupt like their opponents. How can Americans defeat the corrupt Israeli machinery that wages its agenda from the level of the American president and Israeli prime minister? We are already also dealing with the force of the most powerful lobby in America—AIPAC, which is far more powerful than lobbies such as the defense lobbies and big oil lobbies. At least we can criticize defense and oil programs but we dare not criticize the Israeli apartheid that regards Palestinians as chickens in coops as it sends non-Jewish babies home too soon.
Israel realizes its days of lying about the terrorism it has been waging on the people of Gaza is now exposed by regular folks who use their cameras, Twitter, and Facebook. Frightened that it is losing its propaganda war that puts a gag order on every American for over 60 years, Israel now wants to institutionalize the propaganda machinery through the university system.
If this plan to further corrupt the Israeli educational system can be so blatantly articulated as government policy, then what would stop Israel from dictating that it must become American government policy for public institutions of higher education. Which president of a leading American university or which U.S. senator would oppose this if Israel wants it here as well? And do any of you really think we can counteract this latest move of Israeli’s corruption and violence-affirmation without similar strategies?
