Japan & Germany Forge Alliance With Confederate States Of America To Win World War II
In a stunning blow to American workers last night, Senate Republicans killed any attempt to assist the Big Three U.S. automakers. Banding together to protect the interests of Asian and German automakers, they possibly dealt a death blow to Ford, GM and Chrysler. Jon Meacham of Newsweek, in an appearance today on Morning Joe made the following observation about last night’s collapse: “Japan, Germany and the American South have formed the new Axis of Evil.” I couldn’t agree more. Did we really win that war?
Within a few days of the 68th anniversary of Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor, they have finally succeeded in their efforts to bring down the United States of America. Using the southern wing of the Republican Party, they have managed to kill, once and for all, the great manufacturing base of the U.S. Those same hypocritical politicians who love to wave their U.S. flags and act more-patriotic-than thou, have banded together with corporations supported by foreign governments to bring down a segment of the U.S. economy. How shameful!
I suggest that these so-called patriots climb back into their U.S.-made pickups with the Confederate flags plastered across their back windshields and start honking a new chorus of Dixie. Finally, The South has gotten its long-awaited revenge on The North for not allowing its secession from the Union 150 years ago. Perhaps Lincoln made the wrong decision. Perhaps he should have let them go. I’m sure that an apartheid-style dictatorship in the old Confederacy would be a greatly viable nation today. NOT!
Of course, I jest because I would be one of the unfortunate citizens of such a nation. Maybe as a first son of a first son I would be relatively exempt from the bad side of such a government because I would still hold my family’s plantation in South Carolina. But I would probably be facing an eternity in hell for supporting slavery, not to mention abusive treatment of the “poor white trash” who would still be stuck here.
Everybody in the old Confederate States of America likes to fantasize that they are descended from the gentry who owned plantations and lived the life depicted in Gone With The Wind. Being from a dust-bowl Okie family, I never lived under that assumption. Imagine the surprise my dad’s family felt when we learned a few years ago that we were descendants of a Colonel in the Confederate Army who owned a profitable plantation, complete with slaves, in South Carolina. Of course, that little loss of a war in the mid-1800s changed the family’s fortunes forever and sent them on a western pilgrimage that ended in poverty in Oklahoma.
All I can say about that unfortunate outcome for my family is, “Thank God.” Why? Because the grinding poverty felt by my family, which threatened to imprison me as well, taught me some compassion for the downtrodden. This seems to be lacking in the elites who now rule southern politics. They consider grinding poverty a sign of fiscally-sound government that should be continued at all costs. Of course the only costs they are concerned with are their own losses of what amounts to a few dollars for them in taxes. The loss of health and well-being on the part of great numbers of their fellow citizens doesn’t faze them in the least. We saw that displayed by the Southern Senators last evening as they embarked on a selfish plan to bring down not only the UAW, but all unions in this nation and possibly the entire U.S .economy.
These vocal and hypocritical people who control every aspect of life in The South always blame the poorest, least represented elements of society for every problem. During the Reagan years they crusaded endlessly against “welfare mothers.” The drain caused on our nation’s treasuries and the recession of the mid 70s and early 80s was all the fault of lazy welfare mothers who wouldn’t leave their children at home and go to work. I say “leave their children at home” because these same politicians had no interest in helping these poor, unfortunate women pay for childcare in order to go to a minimum-wage or less job. Oh, the “less”, would be the jobs of domestic servants in the big houses located in every southern town and city. The unwillingness of the masses to wait upon the fine ladies and gentlemen of the south was often lamented in the expression, “Good help is so hard to find these days.” I know that has been a problem ever since you couldn’t just go down to the slave market in New Orleans and purchase “help” for life. Such a loss!
Yeah, all my life I have heard the complaint of my fellow southerners about how much better things would be if only we had won the Civil War. Confederate flags have been as prominently displayed on our Statehouse and County Courthouse grounds as that “other flag”, the U.S. flag. And “Dixie,” the national anthem of the Confederate States of America has always been played and sung with the same reverence and pride as the “Star Spangled Banner.” Yet, when called to task for this treasonous behavior back in 2000, the whole South rose up to claim that the “Stars and Bars” is a part of our heritage and in no way represents any ill feelings toward the U.S. Government. And it in no way can be interpreted to be an indication of any racist sentiment on our part. I call BULLSHIT! It’s time to rip the blindfolds off of everybody’s eyes. The rich elites of The South have used racist politics to divide and conquer a poor majority and continue their corrupt policies as clearly illustrated in the Federal report uncovered by our sleeping media yesterday. Can it be considered a mere coincidence that the top four states on the list of the most corrupt states in the nation were from the old Confederacy? Could it be a further coincidence that the most poverty-stricken states in our nation are former members of the Confederate States of America?
It’s not just time for the nation as a whole to awaken to these truths, it is way past time for the downtrodden citizens of The South to realize that they are being played, misled and ripped off by their political and religious leaders and put a stop to it. It’s time that we in The South rejoin the United States of America and stop our endless rebellion against it. Because if we don’t, our children and grandchildren are going to have to learn to speak Chinese, Japanese and German in order to survive in the new world that we are helping to forge. Hey, Southerners, did you notice that Spanish didn’t make my list? That’s because, for all the hype and misdirection about illegal aliens, the real threat to our national identity and well being is being posed by our elected officials – Republican elected officials – who are selling us out in the name of “open trade.” Wake up! Your house is on fire! And somebody closed the fire station.
It’s time for my fellow southerners to get their heads out and start thinking for themselves and learning the facts. The consequences of hanging on to our old ideas are dire.
Oh, and by the way, one other thing to think about. When the maker of your recent-model American pickup or SUV goes into bankruptcy, one of the contracts that they will be relieved from honoring will be that warranty that you depend on when something goes wrong. Did you think about that? Oh, don’t worry, nobody will be making the parts to fix it anyway.
Silly me! Why worry at all? Just climb in your pickup or SUV, burn some Arab oil and head on over to Wal-Mart, whistling “Dixie” all the way. Once you’re there, buy something made in China. You’ll feel much better. Merry Bleeping Christmas!
KEEP FIGHTING THE GOOD FIGHT!
