Recently, someone posted a comment with a link on this blog, followed by the question, who is brainwashed? I followed the link to a fascist pro-war web site (which is ironic because one of the things they claimed that war ended was fascism. And if you don't think that these pro-war anti-dissention right wingers are fascist, just compare their actions to the brown shirts of the Nazi party.
There, on the home page, I saw it. Zion.
Yes, folks, the real reason we are fighting and killing and dying in the Middle East is not a war against terror, it is a Holy War. We are fighting to create a Greater Israel. Because according to two separate, unrelated passages in the Book of Revelations, when a Greater Israel is created, then Jesus will come back, the rapture will begin and all good Christians will rise to Heaven.
My brother James has been studying scripture and Biblical matters for thirty years. He says (he quoted a source that slips my mind) when they got together to decide which books will go in the Bible and which ones to leave out, there was a question of whether this should even be in here.
The Book of Revelations has been used by the truly insane to "predict" Jesus' return for centuries. ^Take a little from here put it with this and voila, you have a Biblical"truth". Surely you've heard of the Book Of Revelations, haven't you? It was the book Charles Manson used to justify his killing spree.
And how did he get his followers to believe it? He repeated it over and over, until they had no choice to believe it as they were brainwashed. Much the same way that right wingers listen to Rush, and Sean, and Michael Savage, and Fox News repeat the same lie over and over until they believe it. Like the way they all repeated the lies about Iraq(WMD, links to 9/11,etc., etc.) until the American people were brainwashed.
While I'd kind like to see this all played out to the end so when Jesus doesn't come I can go haw-haw, losing my freedom to the Likudniks really wouldn't be worth it. But if you do believe it, that all the Middle East belongs to Israel (such is the basis of Zionism), because thousands of years ago it was all Israel, may I make a suggestion. Get the fuck out of the US as this land all belongs to the Indians.
You are brainwashed.
