America is the city on the hill, god’s favored people, the exceptional nation spreading freedom and Democracy around the world.
Keep repeating this for over 500 hundred years in schools, churches, media, parades, national holidays like the 4th of July and Thanksgiving, the pledge of allegiance to the flag, standing for the national anthem, before and during professional sporting events, and every president mouthing “and, god bless America,” and eventually everyone believes it.
The neural programming is hard-wired in our individual and collective brains and this prevents most Americans from seeing the obvious. America is none of the above.
The FACTS are that our ancestors, the white, colonial Europeans stole the land, its resources, and committed genocide for over 100 years before the Mayflower brought a couple hundred “religious refugees” from England to Plymouth in what is now Massachusetts. The stealing, plundering and genocide continued for another 400 years until the entire continent was conquered by the descendants of these savage European colonizers.
All of this was blessed by the Roman Catholic pope in Rome in what is known as the Doctrine of Discovery, wherein he decreed that the pagan savages could be murdered and their land and its resources could be taken. To this day, the Catholic Church has not condemned and revoked this position.
The U.S. doctrine of Manifest Destiny, a phrase coined in 1845, expressed the philosophy that drove 19th-century U.S. territorial expansion. Manifest Destiny held that the United States was destined—by God, its advocates believed—to expand its dominion and spread democracy and capitalism across the entire North American continent. Once that was achieved, this doctrine was expanded to the entire globe and explains U.S. foreign policy and military adventures around the world.
The most important story in America and the world today is not immigration, the Mueller investigation, Trump, Brexit, voter fraud, epic wild fires and floods, the Dems retaking the House, the Florida and Georgia elections, but what is happening to America and the world as a result of The Big Lie.
Leonard nailed it in his song, Everybody Knows…
Everybody rolls with their fingers crossed
Everybody knows the war is over
Everybody knows the good guys lost
Everybody knows the fight was fixed
The poor stay poor, the rich get rich
That’s how it goes
Everybody knows that the captain lied…..
