White Jesus, Caucasian Santa and Drones that only strike terrorists – myths of modern America

In an age where Obama’s weak attempt at universal health care can be attacked as ‘socialism’, Uncle Sam seems to be dredging the barrel for things to proclaim his greatness of late.

Fox News’ latest dip into the feral right wing culture war of paranoia they so breathlessly love to stoke, revolves around assuring viewers last week that Jesus Christ was white and that Santa Claus is caucasian. The tsunami of ignorance needed to aggressively voice those assertions is as much a testament to the politics of delusion as they are to feeding the fires of stupid hatred.

When you are desperately trying to avoid scrutiny of the genocidal rampage against Native American Indians that built ones’ nation while refusing to critique the role of slavery in creating an economic base that gave them an advantage to glossing over the irrefutable fact that corporate plutocracy makes a mockery of the democratic process, beige Christs and St Nicks must be a welcome relief for America’s corporate myth making manufacturers.

Equally vacuous but infinitely more tragic is the myth of surgical precision by America’s playstation death fleet of robotized murder drones who once again failed to differentiate between terrorists and a wedding party…

Air strike kills 15 civilians in Yemen by mistake: officials
(Reuters) – Fifteen people on their way to a wedding in Yemen were killed in an air strike after their party was mistaken for an al Qaeda convoy, local security officials said on Thursday.

The officials did not identify the plane in the strike in central al-Bayda province, but tribal and local media sources said that it was a drone.

“An air strike missed its target and hit a wedding car convoy, ten people were killed immediately and another five who were injured died after being admitted to the hospital,” one security official said.

…turns out those smart bombs ain’t so smart. The immorality of remote controlled warfare is that the perpetrator sidesteps the one brake pedal on a Democracy for waging never ending war, the brake pedal of domestic casualties. Nothing saps a peoples will to fight like body bags of their daughters and sons being returned for burial. With no risk of casualty, a corporate militaristic ‘Democracy’ like America never has to seek peace, and the endless rain of Hellfire missiles falls with no justice ever in sight for the collateral damage paid for by civilians mauled by these state sanctioned, non-judicial assassinations.

Arguing that Santa is white while drones bomb a wedding party sums up the horror of this absurdity.

  1. On a more serious note…

    Just imagine if Yemen launched a drone strike against US military personnel, considering them to be terrorists, and instead killed 15 people attending a wedding.

    The term “there’d be hell to pay” would become literal, as Obama launched a massive retaliatory strike.

    The phrase “Truth, Justice, and the American Way” seems to have achieved a kind of reversed meaning, as did the nazi slogan “Arbeit macht frei” (“Work will set you free”).

    Whenever Obama or one of our other American cuzzies talks of high sounding moral behaviour between nations, my thoughts automatically move to Guantanamo Bay and drone strikes.

  2. And the irony must surely be that inside Playstations and Xboxes along with most other technical devices like cell phones , cameras and i-things there are subcontracting manufacturers who also supply components to the USA military .
    The most powerful nation on earth is also barking mad and our banks borrow its money to force feed us on so that we’re able to buy it’s junk while our politicians rachett up the cost of living thus forcing us to borrow … etc etc . In the immortal words of the Dahli Lama … WTF ?

    I go back to my own personal mantra , particularly poignant at this time of year when our marketing strategists are brain washing us in to worshiping an invisible beardy man who lives in the sky , and all for a dollar .

    Repeat as necessary ; Don’t Do Debt . Don’t do debt . Don’t Do Debt .
    A 3D mindset is cheaper than a 3D tv and you get better reception in all areas .

  3. I guess they’re called ‘Fox’ ’cause they’re feral and sneaky, prone to vicious attack…

    I never understood that Nobel Prize decision. All he’d done was make some uplifting speeches and some promises that they didn’t wait to see fulfilled (as it turns out, they’d have been waiting a long time).

  4. Remember the furore when the French upset Americans, so they renamed their fries “Freedom Fries”. One word – bigots.

  5. a corporate militaristic ‘Democracy’ like America never has to seek peace,

    The USA has been in a state of continual war for more than a hundred years. Any outbreaks of peace from that rogue nation are the exception and probably accidental.

    • Warning! Massive Sarcasm Alert!

      Well, it’s hard to maintain a creaking behemoth-like cash vacuum like the US military-industrial complex without manufacturing some hilariously absurd justification for bombing the crap out of a nation of emaciated goat-herders… because, you know, they’re all dirty terrorists. American jobs are at stake goddammit! And those cluster bombs and depleted uranium rounds don’t build themselves! Oh, and we’re Amerika, and we’re the bestest in the word at, like, everything… dude.

  6. And neither does long-time leftie. She does care about the casual and pervasive racism implicit in the assumption that any supernatural force would have to be personified by a white male, though. It’s bad enough that those who DO believe assume that their god would naturally have a son (with a woman used as an incubator but not fit to personify the deity – after all, we were after-thoughts, only created to keep men happy). Now the racial identity of the guy has been appropriated and altered by these bigots. I bet they also claim he was a Christian, as opposed to a Jew.

    • I watched Brotown and Atua looked Samoan 🙂

      Some early Christians did apparently see Mary as personifying the deity in some way, but I think they ended up nailed to crosses on the Appian Way.
