AMERICAN DEATH THROES: a guest column by Menachem Mevashir
AMERICAN DEATH THROES
by Menachem Mevashir
As I thought about the New Yorker hit piece on Donald Trump, the thing that most struck me was the confession of the author, Tony Schwartz, that his own economic insecurities and avarice led him to work for Trump, a man for whom he had no respect at all. He rationalized his relationship with Trump out of a sense of his own economic desperation.
I suppose the New York Jewish media glitterati and illuminati are all gloating over this mea culpa of one of their own. They now feel that, having confessed his sin and bared his soul, they all can go back to enjoying the bread and wine at their journalistic communion table. The problem is that this confession is totally bogus, like that of a mafia hitman who confesses to the priest on Sunday knowing full well that, come Monday, he will be back to his whoring gambling drinking murdering ways.
The fact is that the Pressititutes of the American Whoreporate Mess Media have been covering up the truth (at best) and lying to us (at worst) for decades. They are busy little bees serving as the unofficial ministry of propaganda for their government and corporate benefactors and colluders in the great American Fascist experiment of Welfare Capitalism, characterized by private gain (profits) and public pain (bailouts).
The media have been asleep at the wheel ever since the JFK assassination, and probably long before. They failed to tell us the truth about fluoridated water, about the explosion of autism spectrum diagnoses traceable to mercury contaminated vaccines and a whole host of environmental factors. They kept silent about the mounting evidence of the dangers of GMOs. They totally avoided the grave implications about Fukushima and about nuclear power in general, with its totally unmanageable and uncontainable toxic waste products.
They kept mum about the obvious chicanery used in the 9/11 terror attacks. They allowed the government to cart away and destroy evidence and to pay off survivors to ensure that no comprehensive investigation ever would take place. And then to use this masterful lie to justify endless wars of imperial aggression.
Today it is safe to assume that just about anything that appears in newspapers magazines or on tv is a lie, or at least a shallow misrepresentation of the truth.
When I returned to this country in December of 2005, I was on a plane with two New York City radio news reporters. I told them that my mother was raised in New York and always boasted that New Yorkers are the smartest people in the world, but that my impression from seeing the New York media’s ineptitude about 9/11 is that they are the most craven and pusillanimous people on earth. The two journalists stared at me with daggers and then said they are off to a fun convention in Las Vegas and don’t really care what I think about them. Case proven.
So my first thought about the New Yorker piece is that it is another phony confession from our mass media elites to lull us back to sleep.
My second thought is that Trump is right that Schwartz expresses ingratitude. Whatever his mixed motivations were, Schwartz was catapulted into success by collaborating with Trump. It really is ingratitude for him to now punch back at his benefactor. Perhaps he should have penned this piece anonymously? I don’t know. But Trump has a point.
And Trump has a deeper point too. Trump says Make America Great Again. In my view, America was great when it was populated by Native American tribes, who roamed its beautiful landscapes, loving laughing living lying laboring and warring among themselves, in relative harmony with the natural environment. Ever since the white Europeans invaded this continent (and indeed the entire Western hemisphere), their sick and depraved culture has metastasized across this continent, from sea to shining sea, until today we are teeming with the putrefaction of their two legged white maggot culture.
And now we are faced with the likely prospect of the Prince of these maggots being elected to sit in the White House maggot palace. Rather than lament this, I think we all should embrace it as a lifesaving opportunity.
For the sad fact is that Trump epitomizes what American culture is: mendacious mediocrity masquerading as meritorious virtue. For years the elites have used television and the entertainment industry to dumb down the American public. These elites enjoy art galleries and opera, lavish vacations and round the world junkets, opulent homes and extravagant restaurants, while the rest of society languishes in a putrid cultural cesspool of rotten television and exploitative movies. Studies have correlated tv viewing habits with income and education, showing that the corporate elites watch less than 30 minutes of tv per day while the lowest paid and least educated folks watch up to eight hours per day. And now Americans are lobotomizing themselves on electronic media for 12 hours per day!
The elites have enjoyed the good life while failing to provide for a good society for everyone. It is not even a priority to them. And now they are reaping the very bitter harvest of a vulgar and mediocre electorate, that they have helped to create, rising up in fury to nominate the Maggot Prince for President. If the elites don’t like this, if they fear it, then they have only themselves to blame. They’ve listened to fiddlers at the Metropolitan Opera House while Rome burns, but now the conflagration threatens them too. They’re like the fools on the Titanic who thought the gash in the ship’s hull would flood out the steerage riffraff so they could enjoy the entire luxury liner for themselves. But they didn’t realize, stupefied with their own depraved decadence, that they too will drown as the ship of state sinks beneath the waves.
If Hillary Clinton is elected it will be painting more makeup and mascara on the old ugly whore face of America. If Trump is elected we have an opportunity to finally recognize who we all are. When Trump says Make America Great Again, I think he really means Make America Hate Again. And when the Maggot Prince, who represents most of us who have zero intellectual curiosity or integrity and who are proud boastful shallow prejudiced vain narcissistic and grossly materialistic, sits in the White House maggot palace and pulls out his well-endowed urinary tool and pisses on the rest of us, the shower of warm sticky liquid just might help wake us all up to recognize that the only enemy we have to fear is us. We can all look in the mirror and hate what we see. And then we can thank the maggot Prince for helping us to recognize the awful truth of what we’ve become: an odious contemptible society of moral and spiritual and intellectual losers.
