America Has Always Been A Bully

bullying

America has always been a bully.  Americans are convinced that they have a God-given right, or destiny, to expand the country’s borders from “sea to shining sea”.

“The land of the free and the home of the brave” was conquered with complete disregard for the rights of America’s original inhabitants.

Full of expansionist tendencies, Americans engaged in wars throughout the entire world and became involved in foreign affairs where their participation was unwelcome.

Native American Indians welcomed the Pilgrims with open arms, unaware that increasing numbers of settlers would cost the natives their land and lives.

With all that stolen land, white American bullies needed slaves that ships brought from Africa to work the land.

In a war with Mexico, the western settlers stole Texas. Eventually, large northern portions of Mexico, including California, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico and Utah were occupied and ruled by Americans.

By the middle of the 19th century, America decided to force Japan to trade with the U.S. Japan had to accept the U.S.A.’s terms or face naval bombardment.

Due to strong U.S. expansionist sentiment at the end of the 19th century, another conflict broke out between Spain and America.  This time the U.S. wanted Spain’s territories of Cuba, Puerto Rico, The Philippines, Guam and the Caroline Islands.

A large part of the 20th century saw widespread hatred and persecution of communists and foreigners with the U.S. engaged in military conflicts in Vietnam in the 1960’s and 70’s.

America’s history of conquests is beginning to resonate with another, more recent, history: that of Israel.

When Israel has thoroughly isolated the remaining Palestinians on small reservations by American bullying tactics, where will they expand next?

Is there any reason to believe that the Israelis won’t continue to use the American model of occupation and rule? What will Israel use as a continuation of “The War on Terrorism”? Israel’s hawks and the Zionists in America want Iran decimated.

What do Israel and America need to consider before further bloodthirsty expansion?

First, they rely on proficiency in weapons manufacture and military tactics. In the past, they have always been one step ahead of the nations and people they were trying to conquer.

Next, their conquests have never been based on victory alone, but on total and complete subjugation. Herein have been the difficulties with leaving Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan.

Third, control over their own internal affairs has never been enough. They need to interfere with internal affairs of other countries and exploit potential crises for their own personal gain.

America and Israel have involved themselves in an ever-growing military escapade in the Middle East, spreading it with the help of scare tactics and lies.

With America, it has been the threat of terrorism. With Israel, the bogus need for greater self-defence.

Deciding to take military action by disregarding U.N. disapproval and on ridiculous and unproven grounds, America and Israel qualify as the bullies of our time.

It’s time for America to grow up and let Israel deservedly take the condemnation as the world’s chief bully. What should America do?

  • Stop invading, bombing and “regime changing” countries that haven’t attacked us or invaded their neighbours.
  • Quit supporting Israel’s bullying of Palestinians, Lebanon, Gaza and other neighbouring countries.
  • Cease interference in other countries’ domestic elections.
  •  Stop assassinating foreign leaders.
  • Dismantle our global military empire, withdrawing our troops from other countries and giving up the notion that we should exert military control over the entire world.
  • Join the international community as one member of the family of nations, rather than as the biggest bully.

    This article is written as if the majority American public controls the direction of its policies. It does not. Zionism is in complete control of the political economy of the U.S. America cannot do any of the things enumerated by Balles until it deals with Zionism at home.

    With all due respect this article reads as a Chomskyite manifesto that assumes the composition of the ruling class of the 19th Century matches the ruling class in charge of the 21st. It doesn’t and this historical continuum axiom has become a tool to divert attention and analysis away from Zionist power.

    Also when it comes to slavery, the historical records indicates that only a minority of “white” (about 1/3) owned slaves however on a percentage basis the majority of Jews owned more slaves then “whites”. Jews also comprised the overwhelming majority engaged in the slave trade and ownership of slaves in Brazil and owned the Dutch West Indies Company that built its global wealth in the slave trade. Finally the justification for African chattel slavery is has been now shown to come straight from the Talmud. Therefore blaming “whites” becomes a cover for concealing Jewish involvement and importance to the “bullying” alluded to by Balles. In other words, Balles bullying motif simplifies and “white-washes” the historical record and promotes the “Chomskyite” excuse of Israel’s “junior partnership”.

    In addition Balles narrows and isolates the threat of Zionism’s quest of global domination to Israel. Zionism’s expansionism will not end with Palestine being “draw off the map” nor will it end with “greater Israel”. Zionism has already displayed its power in corrupting the major western governments: USA, UK, France, Germany and Australia via its lobby groups. Thus it is sheer folly to assume that Zionism will limit itself at Israel’s yet to be declared boarders.

    What is needed is not flowery, wispy, vague and unclear analysis wrapped up in political correctness. What is needed is raw truth. That is how you educate people and that is how solidarity is constructed.

    You make some good points Deadbeat… I think Balles was postulating which is inherently uncertain in nature. I can see strong similarities in American and Israel’s ways though.

    I think you are right though zionism has spread far and wide. The question is where is the “Achilles heel” of Zionism?

      I think there is dimension in Jewish mentality that I haven’t heard talked about very much: an uncommon and unquenchable thirst for revenge.
      It may well go back to judaism — the religion of blood-thirsty god who demands that the Jews kill every man, woman, child and beats of a conquered people.

      Most other aggressors are satisfied if they have beaten you but Jewish supremacists after “victory” want to DESTROY you. You see it time and again in how they hound the “deniers.”
      Furthermore, retreat, like the so many subsequent craven apologies we read about from those who dared to criticize them, are signs of weakness that do not appease but further inflame the bullies’ thirst for revenge.
      They don’t just destroy the opposing argument/the criticism, they want to destroy the person.
      Shakespeare’s Shylock is a memorable character–he doesn’t just want his money back, he wants the “lapsed” debtor to give him a pound of flesh.
      One answer to your question is exposing Jewish supremacy in all its ramifications.
      Another is in Shakespeare: using their own weapons. Shylock was after all defeated in court by a Talmudic argument.

        I guess when it comes to “bullying” you have hit on an important yet undisclosed topic.

    • Deadbeat May 13, 2012 at 4:09 am #

      I can see strong similarities in American and Israel’s ways though.

      No doubt there are similarities but unfortunately these “similarities” have now become an axiomatic rhetorical cover used by the pseudo-Left (especially by Chomskyites) as a way of shifting the narrative away from Zionist power and influence.

      The aim of this narrative is to introduce a “guilt by association” strawman in order to fallaciously argue that it is “hypocrisy” for Americans to criticize Israel (and Zionism) when “WE” or “white people” are responsible for world imperialism and colonialism? This is not that far apart from Omar Barghouti – on “White People” arguments.

      Such logic even lets Capitalism off the hook because the focus is on some vague idea of “bullying” rather than on sound concepts.

      I’ve grown intolerant of this “blame shifting” narrative that is characteristic of the pseudo-Left scoring talking points with this line of diversionary argumentation.

    The question is where is the “Achilles heel” of Zionism?

    TRUTH is Zionism’s Achilles heel. The truth cannot be avoided and it means rethinking one’s ideology. My experience with the 2003 anti-war movement and 2004 Nader’s campaign removed the ideological blinders off my eyes to the “Left”.

  4. Jonathon Blakeley May 13, 2012 at 4:11 pm #

    Deadbeat it is a pleasure to have some interesting comment & I think you are dead right. Truth is what zionism fears most and the Left are largely gatekeepers and controlled opposition. TBH the right are much more trustworthy than the left it often seems.

    • Deadbeat May 13, 2012 at 9:48 pm #

      the Left are largely gatekeepers and controlled opposition. TBH the right are much more trustworthy than the left it often seems.

      The irony from my Left-wing affinities is that the Right was offering a great deal of truth which is why I think Alex Jones has been embedded on the Right by Zionists.

      What I do today now is cherry-pick the news and the sources and try to apply Leftist principles to the pieces of the information I cherry-pick.

      For example the important pieces of information that I’ve obtained from the Right was about the banking system — money in general, Zionism, and Bolshevism. I used to attend ISO meetings as they are a “Marxist-Leninist” outfit but I never learned about the ruthlessness of these Bolsheviks and their affiliations with the Wall Street bankers until reading material from the Right.

      The Right unfortunately has it set of ideas that
      I reject such as its xenophobia and staunch defense of Capitalism.

      I adhere to principles of peace, justice, fairness and equality. That is what I define as the Left but the pseudo-Left has totally corrupted those principles in order to advance Jewish supremacy.

      This is why I believe that the front-line battle for the saving of humanity must be the direct confrontation of the pseudo-Left and Zionism arm with the TRUTH. From this I believe you’ll be able to construct a long and lasting solidarity.

    I am with you Brother. I pick the best from where ever I find it, but of late I find the right is being slightly more honest. There is an unwillingness to confront certain issues. Nationality, Mutliculturalism, immigration, and so on. Which is why the right wing is surging as in France.

    But What they said in France was that it was a rejection of all three main parties that let Le Penn make the gains. This is i think becuase the political system of many contries have been subverted and infiltrated by Zionist lobbies.

    • Deadbeat May 14, 2012 at 12:31 am #

      I think you’re right about the rise of the Right. Where the Right has been most honest is about the banking system and usury. I was an avid reader of a lot of Left-wing periodicals: Z magazine, Dollars and Sense, Left Business Observer, The Nation, The Progressive, Mother Jones, In These Times to name a few and none of these journals ever mentioned usury and money creation. In fact these journals always advocate the government to borrow more money without mentioning the regressive redistributive effect of that policy.

      To be fair they did call for reductions in military spending and increased progressive taxation but they never challenged the fundamentals of the Federal Reserve and usurious monetary policies. Nor did these publication every identify the raising power of Zionism and its influence on the American political economy. The watch word was always “corporation” as if a form of enterprise is the real problem and not the aims of the people running it.

      However they had an explanation for that “the profit motive”. In other words what the psuedo-Left did was to alter Capitalism from a crisis prone economic problem to a Zionist cover. This gave some credibility to the Right’s excuse for Capitalism that the problem is really “corporatism”. In fact the pseudo-Left has not even adopted this rhetoric.

      The Tea Party was way ahead of OWS by about a two years and the pseudo-Left tried to smear them as “racist” and “white nationalist” thanks to Glen Ford of Black Agenda Report. Reality woke up these Black “leftists” brothers when their Jewish comrades supported the destruction of Libya.

      I maybe that OWS got started because the pseudo-Left could not smear the Tea Party. The Tea Party had popular supported because they responded to Obama bailing out the banks and EVERYONE, no matter your political affiliation, was against the bailout.

      However because the Right, especially the excellent video Money is Debt explained how money is really created, people are now beginning to question why their even is a need for a Central Bank. Why don’t government produce their money debt-free and distributed it to the people. There is no need for governments to borrow a single dollar. This crisis like the Iraq War has FULLY EXPOSED the pseudo-Left as Zionist shills.

      Because the Right has been honest on key issue and the Left has been totally corrupted is the reason for its rise. However you will see that the Left’s rise is mainly for the anti-Capitalist position and to cover Zionism. This is what will lead to the Left to tenuous solidarity on the Left and you’ll see the Left playing the race card in order to bolster its ranks amongst people of color only to control and to betray them at the proper time.

      You are right however. If I had to choose a side right now I would choose the Right over the Left because I know that the Left is totally corrupted by Zionism will eventually betray solidarity. I’ve witness this first hand in 2003-2004. Just take a look at what happened to Gilad recently. That proves it straight away.

        “people are now beginning to question why their even is a need for a Central Bank. Why don’t government produce their money debt-free and distributed it to the people. There is no need for governments to borrow a single dollar.”

        Where are the people who question all of that? I bet you can’t fill half a stadium with them. Most American believe the Fed Reserve is a governmental bank because it has the word “federal” in it.
        Yet when they bump against some statement somewhere that we OWE the Fed this or that much in INTEREST it doesn’t throw them for a loop.
        To pound all that in you’d need a main TV channel on which to explain it over and over several times a day until everybody gets it.

    quite right that we must look at many sources of information, and improve our perceptions by learning to identify various biases. for example some of the coverage of geopolitics on Press TV is in a different league to the ‘Western’ mainstream media, but i would not rely so willingly on it for information about political dissent in Iran.

    and, naturally, we must always beware of our own prejudices, and strive to reduce their effect on our perceptions, or our choice of preferred sources of information. a traditional ‘leftie’ would dismiss, say, someone like David Duke, without feeling the need to read what he says. and an anti-zionist might miss the probability that Israel, that mistress of disinformation, might nevertheless have useful insights about the seamier side of Arab politics.

    again, the price of avoiding dogmatism (of which the extreme development is bigotry) is learning to live with uncertainty.

    the left generally (defined in the broad sense) has two faults which do no service to the causes it espouses: splittism and name-calling. i shall not belabour the point, but i suspect most people would have some idea of what i mean.

  7. Ariadna Theokopoulos May 14, 2012 at 3:00 pm #

    I will take up space just to repeat your statement because I feel strongly that it is tremendously important and true:

    “we must always beware of our own prejudices, and strive to reduce their effect on our perceptions, or our choice of preferred sources of information. a traditional ‘leftie’ would dismiss, say, someone like David Duke, without feeling the need to read what he says. and an anti-zionist might miss the probability that Israel, that mistress of disinformation, might nevertheless have useful insights about the seamier side of Arab politics.

    the usa is mostly now a country of the world’s rejects. it’s been that way since the europeans started colonising it.

    the problem is not that zionists are really different than the parasites that stole the americas from their original inhabitants, but that they are the same subhuman defects of the worst of them.

    just when the usa looked it might make positive advances upon it’s disgusting past and join the human race, the zionists took over and bounced it right back to its 19th century parasite mentality.

    there was no american golden age after 1492, it’s all been shite.
