Letter from a great, great, great granddaughter of two veterans of the Grand Army of the Union
The quotable quote about the "diversity quilt" obscures the deeper, darker truth about the CIA--which is that it HAS been doing its job; and doing it quite well. One simply has to understand the standards by which it is being judged--and who is judging it.
For some reason people refuse to grasp the fact that "their" government--that is the government which they fund at great expense--does not see itself as the defender of their homeland, their culture or, least of all, of their lives.
A globalist class runs the bureaucracy and the bureaucracy is loyal to itself exclusively. One need only read a bit about the French bureaucracy which survived every French convulsion before and after the ancien regime virtually intact; names changed but the bureaucracy rolled on.
There are occasions when the globalist elite and its bureaucracy pretend an affection for the American populace. And that is when these entities feel themselves physically threatened. Then, the all of the machinery of propaganda--which at any other time is used to inculcate self-loathing, community displacement, intellectual isolation and cultural homelessness (who is a "native American" by government standards--hmmmm?) in the majority of Americans--is marshaled to persuade citizens to DIE on behalf of a decaying concept; a concept that the elites loathe and work to undermine when they are feeling fit and frisky.
That the ruling class has been successful in teaching majority Americans to hate themselves is all to evident in thread after thread on Free Republic where posters express satisfaction that their leaders have prepared them for bushels of body bags. There was a time in history when Americans proudly demanded proof from their representatives that the sacrifice of blood was necessary to defend THEIR interests.
Today, we are willingly going to war against an "enemy" and there has been no proof offered that THAT "enemy" committed the act of war.
Still less is anybody asking how it came to pass that America has a planet-load of enemies. The sickening pabulum that "they hate us because we are free" is so outrageous, so banal so easily shown to be false, that I can only conclude that the multi-cultural teachings of the past 30 years have instilled a death wish in the majority of Americans.
Reading the absolute joy with which people are greeting the Presidential announcement of permanent war ("be patient everybody") against terrorism; of a further engorgement of the police powers of the State in the name of "homeland security", of the inevitable body bags without even paying lip service to a declaration of war (war against whom? Nobody cares--to kill the unknown Other and to die is the thing) is the saddest thing in the world. The little foxes have won.
Perhaps a head or two will roll at the CIA. But it will not be displayed on the battlements at dawn. Such populist savagery will not be tolerated. And besides it might give the less "well-educated" among them ideas. It will tumble into some lucrative corporate basket and live out its life in extreme comfort while Americans wave their little plastic flags made in China and bury more of the dead.
The CIA is doing just what it is supposed to do, in spite of this quaint, populist squawk by the "Washington Times". And it will continue to be funded in secret--funded much, much more lavishly in the wake of this catastrophe--because the American People will insist upon it. That says everything....

...of two veterans of the Grand Army of the Republic humbly grants you permission to post that response on the Southern Independence Party's web site.
It appears that the true outcome of our Great Calamity is only now revealing itself. I confess--here in the anonymous confines of the internet--that I think my ancestors would be re-evaluating their sacrifices in light of the actions of the American Empire.
However, I am not yet courageous enough to use my real name. I apologize for that bit of hypocrisy. But some of us are only now waking up to the Facts Of Life and it is hard to shed the old "loyalties".
I'm trying to picture myself telling grandma that one of my posts has been used on "The Southern Independence Party" forum. Sincerely, (and with newly-found and growing respect) MJL--LaBelleDameSansMerci
