Zionism's Useful Idiots
Zionism's Useful Idiots
by Kurt Nimmo
That's you and me, taxpaying US citizens....
We're useful idiots for the Zionists in Washington and Tel Aviv. Useful
because our hard-earned paychecks can be harvested to pay for war and mass
murder in the Middle East, idiots because we don't do anything about it.
So outraged were the Sons of Liberty over British taxation without
representation, they pitched a whole lot of Darjeeling tea into the Boston
We're couch potatoes, useful idiots more interested in Bachelor Bob than the
possibility of an apocalyptic war that will consume the lives of our
children and our wealth.
So usefully idiotic are we that treacherous neocons no longer bother to
offer threadbare lies to cover their murderous tracks....
On Thursday, November 20, the former lead conspirator of the Pentagon's
Defense Policy Board and long-time accused Israeli spy, Richard Perle,
proudly admitted Bush's invasion of Iraq was illegal. "I think international
law stood in the way of doing the right thing," he brazenly told a London
In other words, laws reached by international consensus, agreed upon by the
vast majority of civilized people on the planet for centuries, are little
more than doormats for Zionist gangsters such as Richard Perle, Douglas
Feith, Paul Wolfowitz, to name but the most obvious, and their bosses,
Donald Rumsfeld and Dick Cheney. Like their philosophical and spiritual
swami, Ariel Sharon, these criminals not only thumb their noses at their
foes, but also target them for assassination if they get in the way.
It's as if Perle and his ruthless gang have suddenly decided to dump the
philosophy of the neocon cognoscenti of Machiavellian lying and deception,
Instead of telling lies and building half-ass fabrications in preparation
for committing war crimes and crimes against humanity in the name of a clan
of Likudites in Israel and corporate mobsters close to the Bushites in
America, the neocons now seem more than happy to tell the truth and let the
chips fall where they may.
It's easier, less hassle, and besides Joe Taxpayer doesn't really seem to
care one way or the other if he's lied to, told the truth straight up, or
kept in the dark entirely. He's essentially imperturbable, or maybe
So long as the ultimate cost, in lives and hard cash, remains an abstraction
in the short term, well, nobody on Main Street's going to complain too much.
Maybe a few anti-war types here and there will hoot and holler, but they can
easily be sloughed off -- or ignored entirely -- by the Bush Ministry of
Disinformation (i.e., Fox, ABC, CNN, CBS, etc.) as hate America firsters or
a meaningless focus group.
Death on such a magnitude cannot remain an abstraction forever, especially
now with coffins (the Pentagon calls them "transfer tubes") and wounded
coming home in ever-increasing numbers. For now, however, the wounded piling
up at Walter Reed and Fort Stewart, and the dead arriving daily at Dover,
will not make prime or any other time. "I don't understand why these guys
are so hidden, why there are no pictures of them," Cher lamented recently.
Well, Cher, that's a no-brainer.
The Bush neocons understand something very essential - people, that is
average, every day people -- will do almost anything to avoid war, mostly
because they are the ones to pay the highest price for it.
Roosevelt understood this -- and that's why he steered the Japanese into
invading Pearl Harbor. Something outrageous has to push the people into war,
be it the prospect of rapacious Japanese murdering defenseless GIs or Saddam
conniving with Osama to murder Americans with weapons of mass destruction.
Never mind that the Japanese had no intention of killing Americans until
Roosevelt embargoed their oil. Never mind that Osama hates Saddam and,
besides, there were no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.
It was, and is, murderous deception.
"Of course the people don't want war," mused a recalcitrant Herman Goering
at the Nuremberg trials. "But after all, it's the leaders of the country who
determine the policy, and it's always a simple matter to drag the people
along whether it's a democracy, a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or
a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be
brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is
tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of
patriotism, and exposing the country to greater danger."
If the average American were suddenly exposed to an endless parade of
coffins and the gruesome stories of those seriously wounded in Iraq, the
dreaded Vietnam Syndrome would come screaming back - in other words, people
would demand an end to war, like they did during the Vietnam war -- and the
neocon jihad against the Arab Third World in the name of Zionism and
neoliberal corporate theft would be throttled in short order.
Obviously, the Perles and the Wolfowitzes and the Cheneys and Rumsfelds and
their ideological bedfellows outside of the White House and Pentagon are not
going to let this happen.
They're going to do whatever it takes to keep the "war on terrorism" moving
forward, even if it means another attack on the American heartland. Even if
it means another slaughtered 3,000 office workers, or a dirty bomb going off
during Christmas rush in the parking lot of the Mall of America.
These people are sincerely immoral, even sociopaths. Their legacy is
Operation Northwoods, the firebombing of Hamburg, Tokyo, Dresden, Kobe, and
the nuking of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. It's the deliberate murder of 500,000
Iraqi children, the spreading of depleted uranium across the globe, the
methodical serial murder of nearly 3,000,000 Vietnamese.
Of course, the average American -- the sheepish Untermensch, the useful
idiot for Zionism, the guy who unconsciously donates part of his paycheck to
Israel every year -- he's immersed in an entertainment fog, the modern
equivalent of Roman bread and circuses, so he's essentially clueless to
what's going on.
Since he rarely ventures beyond Fox, the Bush Ministry of Disinformation,
for his "news," he knows nothing about Zionist control of not only the White
House, but also Congress and the very media he's passively consuming.
He's a blinkered cash cow.
Maybe, as well, his kid's a bullet stopper for a Zionist settler who thinks
Americans should die so he can steal land from Palestinian Arabs, so no
powerful rival will emerge in the Arab world to challenge Israeli crimes
"An immensely wealthy and powerful republic has been hijacked by a small
cabal of individuals, all of them unelected and therefore unresponsive to
public pressure," explains Edward Said. This "small cabal," writes Edward
Herman, consists of "the powerful pro-Israel lobby in the United States,
which advances Israeli interests by pushing for U.S. aid and protection to
Israel, and, currently, by pressing for a war against Iraq, which again will
serve Israeli interests. This lobby has not only helped control media debate
and made congress into 'Israeli occupied territory', it has seen to it that
numerous officials with 'dual loyalties' occupy strategic decision-making
positions in the Bush administration."
You can't get much more "strategic" than Dick Cheney, vice president, the
guy right below Bush (or some would say Bush is below Cheney).
Here's a former advisor for JINSA, short for the Jewish Institute for
National Security Affairs, running the executive branch of the government.
Directly below him are staunch Israeli-firsters, friends of the war criminal
and mass murderer Ariel Sharon and the criminal, Arab (and British and
American) killing machine, also known as the Likud Party, a gangster
organization based on "revisionist" Zionism, in other words the philosophy
of Vladimir (Zeev) Zabotinsky, a fascist Arab hater who harbored warm and
fuzzy feelings for Benito Mussolini.
The Israel-firsters in the Bush administration, according to Ann Pettifer,
"pursue political power not in order to make the US a better place, to right
wrongs or to fight inequality here, but to promote Israel's pre-eminence in
the Middle East, to confine Palestinians to a couple of Bantustans or,
better still, engineer their expulsion to Jordan... Wolfowitz and fellow
Jewish neo-cons Richard Perle and Douglas Feith have emerged as the
Pentagon's Paladins, their aim being to subdue the Islamic world through
decisive, pre-emptive use of American military superiority."
In other words, chew up US treasure and kill American kids who thought they
joined the military to defend their country -- or, like the hapless Jessica
Lynch, joined up because they couldn't get a job or an education anywhere
The streets of Iraq have become in short order murderous hellholes designed
by malevolent former Ba'athists -- who were brought to power by the CIA in
the 60s -- to kill US soldiers. Bush, of course, and the Likudite Zionists
who run his illegally appointed administration don't give a rat's ass about
the lives of a few thousand American soldiers or, for that matter, 28
million odd Iraqis.
Israel, and the racist colonialist mentality of the Zionists, is all that
matters. It's currently what the foreign policy of the United States is all
All of us, especially the Arabs, are expected to pay homage to the Zionists.
Those of us who live in the United States and pay our (war) taxes, we ante
up every week or two weeks, certain our money will go to build Israel's
apartheid wall, pay for new settlements on Arab land, or grease the gears of
bulldozers that smash down ancient olive trees.
We pay dearly for Israeli ethnic cleansing.
Meanwhile, by default or mere stupidity and ignorance, the American people
remain useful idiots for Zionism.
They may not realize George Bush's so-called "war on terrorism" is actually,
as the neocons deem it, the opening salvos of World War IV (according to
neocon and former CIA director James Woolsey).
It's a war Bush has declared will last a long time, possibly for the rest of
our lives, generations, but few Americans seem to glimpse the obvious
implications - more mass murder, increasing hardship, loss of constitutional
liberties, maybe even nuclear Armageddon.
As Wilhelm Reich knew, the "little man" will invariably embrace not only his
enslavement, but also revel in his own denigration. He not only supports
dictators such as Hitler, Mussolini, and Stalin (and now Bush), but admires
them as well.
"You give impotent people with evil intentions the power to represent you,"
Reich wrote. "Only too late do you realize that again and again you are
Now's the time to stop the fraud.
But I don't know if the useful idiots of Zionism are up to it.
