Never Forget

14 years after 9/11 and the U.S. government is waging war on 7 countries publicly and many more secretly or through mercenaries, resulting in millions dead, millions injured, and millions displaced in what is nothing short of a Muslim holocaust…

The U.S. government has assassinated thousands of human beings including at least 4 U.S. citizens without charge or trial, including a 16-year-old boy…

The U.S. government continues to kidnap and imprison Muslims indefinitely without charge or trial, while filling its prisons and cemeteries with Black, Latino and Native people through a policing and judicial system that has been proven to be discriminatory in both policy and effect…

The U.S. government continues to torture its prisoners and detainees, calling it either “enhanced interrogation techniques,” “forced feeding,” or “solitary confinement”…

The U.S. government has gone public with a program of mass surveillance of people and communication that no dystopian novelist could have dreamed of, and used it to murder, kidnap, exile, frame, and harass people who work for human rights and social justice against U.S. political and economic interests…

The U.S. government has overseen an increasing promotion of the wealthy and marginalization of the poor, a growing wealth gap, ballooning debt slavery, and that’s just inside the U.S. itself…

The U.S. government has overseen an increase in white supremacist organizing and hate crimes, including yesterday’s attack on an elderly Sikh man near Chicago.

The U.S. government at the local level is still blocking Muslims from building houses of worship, like the one in Michigan voted down last night.

And despite all this, and despite the fact that even so-called attacks on the U.S. nation have so often been proven to be false flag operations (including, most probably, the September 11 attacks), U.S. government and media institutions have the gall – THE HYPOCRISY – to consider themselves the police of the world, the model of a free society, the standard by which others are judged.

If your community leaders tell you to ignore this and wait, if they obfuscate these truths, if they hem and haw and make excuses, if they point the finger at some other government or group fighting for their own survival and say “look, there’s the real bad guy,” then those “community leaders” are co-conspirators in the criminal enterprise that is – yes I’ll say it again – a HOLOCAUST.

There is no activism, advocacy, reform or political punditry without acknowledging these truths. We must know how bad the problem is if we are to envision a solution. And we should know now that the source of violence in the world is very clear, that for Americans there can be only one target upon which to aim our revolutionary organizing, and that is the government that uses our tax dollars and complicity to murder, rape, and steal: the USA.

#NeverForget indeed.
