This is a picture of bikers in New York yesterday which appears on the excellent Atlas Shrugs American patriotic site
Denise wrote, (addressed to Pamela Geller) “I was down on the Mall in D.C. today watching Rolling Thunder and saw this. I thought about you and knew you would love it. There were a bunch of these guys with “Free Gilad” flags on the back of their bikes but they were moving so fast I couldn’t get them in the shot. This is the only one that turned out, but it’s a pretty good picture of the flag with Gilad’s face on it.”
The picture was taken on Memorial Day in America, in New York, and it shows very patriotic American bikers with a large flag devoted to the Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit, who has been held for many years by the Fascist group Hamas.
America is split in its mind.
There is the insoluble crisis in the world capitalist economic system.
There is America who took on the leadership of this capitalist system, around about 1945, when Britain was eclipsed and America emerged as the main representative of capitalism.
But the contradictions have caught up and the whole shebang is bankrupt, not by Obama though he helps, but for reasons inherent
THE GLORIOUS FIRST AMENDMENT
Then there is the America and American nationalism which created the First Amendment, which is the most important single political right I would say that a human being can have, the right to Free Speech.
It is this right to Free Speech that the decrepit political capitalist forces and their governments in Europe are seeking to do away with, the sharpest point of which is the trial of Geert Wilders.
But this American ruling capitalist class are not at all innocent.
They created the conditions for the Big Lie of Srebrenica.
Despite these bikers the American Governments have led since 1948 in the demonization of Israel.
Given that across the spectrum of those politically mobilized on this issue, from one pole to the other, everybody appears to have the same opinion on this, casual observers are naturally drawn into agreement as well, creating a crushing consensus all over the world: the US is an ally of Israel.
But is it true?
Pamela Geller stands for not that tradition of betrayal of Israel but for the very opposite.
You see, Geller is far more on the side of Tom Paine than any other and this is shown in her consistent support for the Serbs and for the Jews.
In fact it is the bitter enemy of us all, including all of us real “Leftists”, the MediaMatters.org which is far closer and a bigger ally of US Imperialism today
It is Soros, carter, Obama, aspects of Bush and Rice, etc who are the real voice of US bitter betrayal of friends and horror repression in the world today.
The discussion must continue.
