5 June 2009: US President Barack Obama vowed on Friday to seize the moment to advance Middle East peace, underlining the historic commitment to Israel with a solemn visit to a former Nazi camp. Flanked by Nobel survivor and Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel and German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Obama became the first US president to visit the Buchenwald concentration camp in central Germany. "To this day, there are those who insist that the Holocaust never happened, a denial of fact and truth that is baseless and ignorant and hateful. This place is the ultimate rebuke of those thoughts - a reminder of our duty to confront those who tell lies about our history," Obama said.
It’s hard to take this kind of political nonsense seriously, when Obama-the-wannabe-moralist has just suppressed the release of photographs of rape and torture from Abu Ghraib prison and declined to prosecute Americans guilty of war crimes.
We have in America a great class of right wing blowhards who deny the American military and intelligence services routinely commit rape, torture and murder. A denial of fact and truth that ought also to be deemed baseless and ignorant and hateful by Obama. And Obama could force these right wing blowhards to face the truth, by releasing the photographic evidence and prosecuting the war criminals. But Obama is not a moralist, he is a coward, terrified to confront the American military.
The military has become America’s new priest class. Even America’s so-called *peaceniks,* who claim they are against America’s wars, continue to *support the troops.* This is a schizophrenia produced by the deification of the American military. After America collectively wet herself on 9/11, the sheeple placed what little was left of her faith in the military.
It is Obama’s job, through his incessant speechifying (a kind of gott sprache), to guard this faith. That is why Obama refused to allow the release of the photographs which show America’s saintly troops raping boys and girls in Abu Ghraib. That is why Obama refuses to prosecute American war criminals. The holiness of America’s saintly warriors must be protected. If the American troops are ever stripped of their sainthood, the military collapses, as it nearly did during Vietnam. And then the American empire collapses.
There is a kind of parallel between the American troops and all the cock-sucking priests of the catholic church, but the troops have a far higher standing—they are now the ones created in god’s own image. . .they are considered holy men of god on divine missions to save us (the *good*) from them (the *evil*), while the catholic priests are just considered old phonies, perverts presiding over a dying church, a vestigial remnant from our superstitious past.
Now Obama is on a world tour, speechifying. That’s what this mulatto does best. He is the perfect follow-up to the inarticulate Bush. Obama’s incessant chatter, his God damned American logos, is designed to speak out of existence all of the crimes of BushCo, even while these same crimes continue during his presidency.
Thus the folly of Obama lecturing Ahmadinejad on the holocaust. After refusing to confront his own country’s crimes in Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Guantanamo and in all the third-party secret prisons, Obama points his finger at Ahmadinejad. The staggering hypocrisy! Some sand nigger needs to throw a shoe at this pompous ass!
