Confederate flag still flies over Denver

DENVER, COLORADO- All eyes have been on South Carolina, Bree Newsome, and the White Supremacist rallies which have percolated since, but Colorado indignants could note that a Confederate battle flag does still fly over Denver. The historic Riverside Cemetery commemorates Memorial Day, Veterans Day, and notable Civil War anniversaries with flags honoring American soldiers. They don’t fly Old Glory over the Confederate vets and the manager assured me they don’t plan to dishonor the Rebels with a Union flag anytime soon. On the graveyard’s Northwest side, nearest to the Evans crypt there’s a cobblestone patch where the bricks are engraved with the names of Colorado veterans who served the Confederacy. Over the gathering is a flag pole which was dedicated in 2003. It’s a discrete affair visible to only visitors touring the cemetery’s historic tombstones or dog-walkers heading out to the Riverside’s wetland conservation area.

Iwo Jima, the Veterans of Foreign Wars and Memorial Day

There appears to be no more popular symbol of American patriotism and resiliency than the raising of the flag on Iwo Jima. Do Americans think Mount Suribachi overlooked Pearl Harbor? (As if Hawaii in the mid-Pacific was even US manifest destiny). Of the USA’s far flung “possessions” Iwo Jima was not among them. As usual the US Marines were laying claim to lands of others, of the Japanese. It had as much to do with protecting our freedom as Montezuma and Tripoli.

W.A.S.P. Triumphalism, Memorial Day and The Wingless Vultures

I swear the Territory Days Triumphalism celebration (Like the so-called “Islamic Triumphalism” rally around the world last September 11th, remember that? They were celebrating Eid, one of their holidays they celebrate every damn year using the same Lunar Calendar the Israelis use. It’s like Famous Racist Jerkoff Mel Gibson if he would actually go so far as saying that Passover is Jewish Triumphalism for killing Jesus) is getting More Racist every year. Anyway, at Territory Days they’re celebrating Custer, Kit Carson, Gen Palmer, Colonel Chivington… claiming once more that the Sand Creek Massacre was instead a necessary battle because the Cheyenne and Arapaho, ama-yetli de sdya da ni ludk, Ka no kwo 'uhwana hisd Tsalagi who had a legal right to be there, were Threatening Being Bad Indians And Not Doing What Their Newly Self-Appointed White Overlords Told Them To Do. The White Overlords who didn’t have a legal right to be there.

They had separate treaties with the Ute chief Ouray to be in Colorado City and Denver, but not where downtown C.S. is now. Ouray, according to the Brochure the Modern Klan organizers of the event are passing around, was a “Good” Indian for honoring the treaties even though Chivington and later Palmer consistently refused to honor.
And, the Military Recruiters are using all the massed White Supremacist Triumphalism AND Memorial Day to get more kids to join up and go fight the New Indian Wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, perhaps soon Iran and Pakistan…Libya, the Sudan, Somalia, Yemen,

They’re two-legged jackals, vultures without wings. They’re chosen to be recruiters because they look pretty in their uniforms and can therefore sell the Pentagon Bullshit effectively. They even get paid annual bonuses for every twenty souls they broker selling them to The Beast.

Using a memorial to the Dead to sell more people unto Death.

My assessment runs from “Tacky” to “Full-on Evil”.

Some will disagree, of course. The difference between my free speech and theirs is that I don’t threaten them with arrest or other forms of violence when they exercise theirs.

Oh, and they rewarded Chief Ouray for honoring the treaties, by passing a law while he was still alive that effectively made it a death penalty offense to be Indian.

It’s probably still on the books. Forbidding anyone to possess the regalia or implements of a Medicine Man.

Why people shoot Cops, just in time for “Police Memorial Day”

You know, if the cops want to convict you of something quick and dirty, without having to prove anything, they have a few tools. Like “disorderly conduct” or “public intoxication”. If you object, they can and often do have three PIGS hold you down while a fourth stomps on your head. Then charge you with resisting arrest.
Like the Euless Police Department did three weeks ago to Albert Nicolas, age 36.
When his family came to arrange his bail, noticed how badly injured he was, (a Major Concussion, which is a bruise on the brain, and a couple of minor ones) and requested that the PIGS should take him to the Emergency Room, the PIGS not very politely sneered that they didn’t have to, their Jail Nurse had “determined his injuries weren’t life threatening” (they were).

If Albert had not gotten bailed out and rushed to the E.R. by his bondsman, he would have DIED from the injuries. The PIGS, who get sexually aroused from any form of exercising power over Other People, probably would have tasered him as he was dying in convulsions, saying he was “acting out”. The Jail Nurse and the Coroner, both of them sworn deputized PIGS who do anything their fellow PIGS say to do, including Lie Under Oath, would have sworn that he had banged his head himself.

The Moronic “Back The Badge” PIG-Loving political COWARDS (here’s looking at you, Patch!) would believe everything the PIGS said and that would be the end of it.
Until somebody who actually cared cornered one of the PIG motherfuckers (and yeah, I’ll be called a “potty mouth” for that) and put a .45 slug between his piggy little eyes and out the back of his piggy little skull.
Then the PIG’s Sow and Piglets would be interviewed on TV boo-hooing and promoting the fiction that the PIG was actually an honorable and courageous man, kind to everybody (except to bound or handcuffed prisoners he stomped to death) and How Could Somebody Do That To Daddy? Well, Piglets, your daddy was a Power Tripping PERVERT who masturbated to the pain and suffering of Real Men. Truth hurts, yes? Tough. Your daddy got exactly what he and his PIG organization dish out. Get over it.
Call me a potty mouth for putting it like that, but hey, my nephew almost lost his life due to PIG arrogance.

Happy Pig Memorial Day, punks.

Agents of injustice

“Law never made men a whit more just; and, by means of their respect for it, even the well-disposed are daily made the agents of injustice. A common and natural result of an undue respect for law is, that you may see a file of soldiers, colonel, captain, corporal, privates, powder-monkeys, and all, marching in admirable order over hill and dale to the wars, against their wills, ay, against their common sense and consciences, which makes it very steep marching indeed, and produces a palpitation of the heart. They have no doubt that it is a damnable business in which they are concerned; they are all peaceably inclined. Now, what are they? Men at all? or small movable forts and magazines, at the service of some unscrupulous man in power?

Visit the Navy Yard, and behold a marine, such a man as an American government can make, or such as it can make a man with its black arts — a mere shadow and reminiscence of humanity, a man laid out alive and standing, and already, as one may say, buried under arms with funeral accompaniments, though it may be

‘Not a drum was heard, not a funeral note,
As his corse to the rampart we hurried;
Not a soldier discharged his farewell shot
O’er the grave where our hero we buried.’

The mass of men serve the state thus, not as men mainly, but as machines, with their bodies. They are the standing army, and the militia, jailers, constables, posse comitatus,etc. In most cases there is no free exercise whatever of the judgment or of the moral sense; but they put themselves on a level with wood and earth and stones; and wooden men can perhaps be manufactured that will serve the purpose as well. Such command no more respect than men of straw or a lump of dirt. They have the same sort of worth only as horses and dogs. Yet such as these even are commonly esteemed good citizens. Others, as most legislators, politicians, lawyers, ministers, and office-holders, serve the state chiefly with their heads; and, as they rarely make any moral distinctions, they are as likely to serve the devil, without intending it, as God. A very few, as heroes, patriots, martyrs, reformers in the great sense, and men, serve the state with their consciences also, and so necessarily resist it for the most part; and they are commonly treated as enemies by it. A wise man will only be useful as a man, and will not submit to be “clay,” and “stop a hole to keep the wind away,” but leave that office to his dust at least:

‘I am too high-born to be propertied,
To be a secondary at control,
Or useful serving-man and instrument
To any sovereign state throughout the world.'”

–Henry David Thoreau, Civil Disobedience

Honor heroes not war criminals

Honor heroes not war criminalsA special Memorial Day banner for those who would confuse supporting our troops for a blank check endorsement of militarism. Remember the dead and veterans of 1812. No subsequent war has been about protecting American freedoms, but rather to increase our imperial business interests overseas. Declare another holiday if you must for the blimp-necked brutes who supply the muscle for US belligerency.
