Today, in the decaying remains of what was once the United States of America, we celebrate the unofficial beginning of Summer. It’s a day for heading outdoors (in normal times, anyway), taking time off from our labors to enjoy family, and in the evening, returning to our paleo roots by firing up charcoal cooking pits and searing the first outdoor meats of the post-Winter season.
That’s what the day has become in recent decades. In times past we would use this day to commemorate the death of the nation’s warriors in the many conflicts the Powers That Be have committed us to over the nation’s 244 years of existence. Hindsight reveals very few of these conflicts to have been justified, which no doubt has been no small contributing factor in the devolution of this holiday from one of commemoration and reflection to one of hedonistic pleasure.
I propose restoring this holiday to its original purpose, but not for the reasons that the jingoistic pseudo-patriots among us would have us celebrate it. Rather than celebrating the fallen as “heroes” who “defended out freedoms” to their very last death on glorious fields of battle, I would have us celebrate this day as a national Day of Mourning, or, perhaps more accurately, a National Day of Shame. Far from having fallen in battle “defending our freedoms,” the unfortunate souls who made the ultimate sacrifice more often than not did so for the selfish interests of the Ruling Class, interests that had laughably little, if anything at all, to do with “our freedoms,” or even defending the country’s territorial integrity.
On a hot summer day, the day after the Fourth of July, 1979, I stood in a large room in a federal office building in downtown Oakland, California, raised my right hand, and swore the following oath:
”I, [Feeriker], do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign AND DOMESTIC; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.”
Immediately thereafter I, along with the few dozen other deluded souls with whom I took the oath, was shuttled off to San Francisco International Airport across the Bay, put aboard a plane to San Diego, California, and for the next eight weeks molded into a member of the seafaring arm of The American Imperial Legions. The brainwashing and indoctrination, combined with the shallow and half-formed life goals I clung to at the time, would lead to squandering two precious decades of my short life in service to the imperial ambitions of the Reigning Cabal.
Looking back on the whole experience, and re-reading today the oath I took on that July day 41 years ago (an oath that has no expiration date, by the way), it shames me to think of a what a thoroughly and criminally lousy –indeed negligent– job I did in executing the key portion of my oath, in bold font in the quote above, and in particular the capitalized part. The Constitution of the United States, in particular the first ten amendments thereto, enshrine the “freedoms” that our rabid nationalists believe me to have been defending for two decades. Looking out on the landscape now, it is obvious that I did no such thing. Whatever it was that I was “defending,” it clearly was not that which is the only thing that makes the maintenance of the United States of America as a nation worth the effort.
The capitalized part of the oath cited above is by far the most criminally neglected part of it, for it is undeniable that ALL of the enemies of the Constitution of the United States have been domestic. Other than King George III of England, who for obvious reasons never would have wanted the Constitution enacted in the first place, exactly NONE of America’s foreign enemies have had any interest at all in the U.S. Constitution, let alone wanted to see it destroyed.
The Mexicans, whose territory the U.S. invaded in the late 1840s following its annexation of Texas, had no interest in destroying the U.S. Constitution; they merely wanted the Yanquis to GTFOO their territory and leave them in peace to let them live under their constitution, whatever form it might have taken.
The southern U.S. states that became the Confederate States of America not only did not want to destroy the U.S. Constitution, they were demanding that the very federal government charged under said Constitution with protecting it simply do its damned job and stop behaving unlawfully.. It was only when that government, under the tyrant Lincoln, refused to do so that they said “fuck this shit, we’re out.” Apparently, in Dishonest Abe’s mind, the demand that he adhere to the terms of the document that gave his rule any legitimacy at all was tantamount to destroying it.
The American Indians of the Plains States certainly didn’t want to destroy the Constitution or “take away our freedoms.” They just wanted the white man and his constitutional republican government to LTTFA so that they could enjoy THEIR freedom to live as a free people.
The Spanish sure the hell didn’t want to threaten the U.S. Constitution. The very idea was laughable even to the most ignorant of Americans on the street in 1898, which is certainly one reason why there was noticeably more opposition to the blatantly contrived war against Spain, and the imperial campaigns that followed it, than there had been to any other war up until that point in the nation’s history.
Kaiser Wilhelm II didn’t give a verdamnte Scheiẞe about the U.S. Constitution. His biggest gripe with the U.S. of A was its arming of his arch-rival, Great Britain, in violation of the U.S.’s own declared neutrality in what was then a world war, a series of acts precipitated by the bankster’s bitch Woodrow Wilson in violation of the U.S. Constitution.
It goes without saying that neither Uncle Adolf, Il Duce, nor General Tojo bore any animus toward the U.S. Constitution either, and that not only were they not interested in harming it, they actively tried to avoid conflict with America, Adolf and Hideki in particular pulling out all the stops to placate the U.S. government, often to their own detriment. Another bankster’s bitch, one Franklin Delano Roosevelt, couldn’t afford to let that happen, though, and thus provoked one of the aforementioned trio into attacking the U.S., thus dragging the other two into it out of political necessity.
After dragging the U.S. into a conflict that nearly destroyed humanity, solely at the behest of their bankster masters, the Cabal gave itself a breather of a few years before deciding that first North Korea, and then North Vietnam, two impoverished peasant countries on the other side of the globe that couldn’t even convincingly threaten their impoverished neighbors, let alone a First World power half a world away, were the latest dire foreign threat to the Constitution and “our freedoms.” By now nobody was even pretending to follow the constitutionally prescribed requirements for waging war on the nation’s behalf, and a century of government indoctrination masquerading as education had convinced a majority of the American masses that “my country, right or wrong” was as sacred an idea as anything in the Christian Bible and that if the government thought that war was good for the country, then by God, who was any mere peasant to say otherwise?
The last fifty years have seen the abandonment of even a pretense of defending the Constitution against foreign enemies and no one would even dare think of using the forces authorized by the government to deal with what are clearly domestic enemies.
In short, and to put it bluntly, EVERY SINGLE soldier, sailor, airmen, or marine who has given their life while wearing the uniform has, with the rarest of exceptions difficult to cite, done so not in defense of the Constitution, but in defense of the interests of it’s enemies. One need only to look at the trampling of the Bill of Rights that has taken place over the last two months (this being only the latest and most egregious assault in a series that goes all the way back to the founding of the republic) to see that NO ONE in any position of authority, in civil government or in the active or reserve armed forces, is taking their oath of office seriously. Until they do, the only way to “celebrate” Memorial Day is as a day of shame and a call to action.
So yes, it is indeed better that the American people simply use this day as an excuse to take a paid day of leisure than to pretend that it represents something more noble than it does. Until those who took the Oath of Enlistment atone for their negligence (and that includes yours truly) by standing up and doing something to defend the Constitution, specifically its first ten amendments, against the depredations of the globalist Ruling Class that have all but killed it, there is nothing to celebrate.
There may be a meaningful Memorial Day in the future, but I assure you of this: it will NOT be an official holiday recognized by any predatory government!
