Posted on 06/04/2016 5:49:51 AM PDT by rey
The following is an Op-Ed by the Editors of Salon.com Following U.S. President Barack Obamas inspiring visit to Hiroshima, its important to reconsider the most important lesson weve learned since the ending of WWII: we should have let the Axis win.
Bigots will no doubt try to factsplain the notion that Japan attacked the United States at Pearl Harbor first. Its simply more of their typical use of historical privilege, justifying a tradition of victim blaming and vilification of minorities.
The only reason the aircraft that dropped the bomb on Hiroshima was named Enola Gay was so the military industrial complex could blame the dawn of the atomic age on the LGBT community. The American experiment has been nothing but a massive plot to denigrate protected classes.
Lets be candid, its taken over 70 years for Americans to have a serious conversation about National Socialism and firmly divide people along racial lines. Thanks a lot Allies. During that time, what has America actually done for the world? Given us an addiction to technologies dependent on fossil fuels? Domestic surveillance techniques? Patriarchy? The great American melting pot is more like a great American chop shop of appropriated culture.
In contrast, Germany is internationally known for their good will towards other nations, and Japan is one of the world leaders in technology. Think of where they could have been if we hadnt held them back in 1945. The Cold War would never have happened under a one world government presided over by our Fuhrer and the divine leadership of the Emperor of the Rising Sun. No doubt the Soviet Union would have become a beacon of communist utopia without the incessant proxy conflicts instigated by the United States.
Its high time we admitted to ourselves the Axis powers were on the right side of history with their progressive ideals concerning the internment of the wealthy and confiscation of their property. Allied meddling has led us to a dystopian future decidedly lacking in Volkisch hentai anime and annual Kristallnacht holiday weekends. Its a world we should be sad to live in.
Someone should check this logic out with the Burnster.
Satire is truth for idiots. It works because some fools believe it.
The new world order folks would have noting to do if Hitler and Hiro had won. We’d be one great big happy goose-stepping world without borders!
For satire to work it as least has to sound plausible. It’s a satire of Salon parodying Salon. Or something.
Years ago, someone had published an online article laying out the idea that in reality the Imperialists were the good guys and rebels were the terrorists in the Star Wars sage. It was a great read!
BTW, Enola Gay was the name of Tibbets’ mother.
I love how the media insists on continuing to use the term “fossil fuel” long after it is clear to anyone with an IQ above room temperature dinosaurs had nothing to do with petroleum. If the progressives ever lose that “hill” (fossil fuel) the entire global warming thing evaporates into nothingness. They know it and so continue to hammer at it. Our side needs to start laughing at them immediately and every time they use the phrase. Point out how stupid anyone who uses the phrase is.
“factsplain” obviously, newspeak is here.
Orwell had it right in so many ways.
John Semmens took satire to a new level on here. Some of it so good it had you guessing.
I for one am glad you did, because this could very well indeed have been written by some of those that write over at Salon. Since most people start reading the body before they ever get down to the keywords that tells us that it is satire, the words read make one want to say WTF and respond accordingly..
Oh, I thought it was high school history.
“It works because some fools believe it.”
If, eight years ago you had told me that the DOJ would be suing companies for not allowing men in women’s restrooms I’d have thought you were nuts. Or, that the IRS would not only be allowed to target conservative groups, but that they would get away with it. Or, that the Secretary of state would migrate her top secret emails to a private unsecured email account. All of these things are, or were, too ludicrous to believe. But time marches on. What might have been satire less than a decade ago is now historical fact. Who, then, is the fool? I propose that all of us are being played as fools.
People are having trouble distinguishing truth from reality, because reality has gotten way too weird.
I appreciate you labeling it satire, next time add it in the title (Satire)
The left has always had problems keeping that right arm from rising in a HH salute:
Our President apologizes to Japan instead of the descendants of Pearl Harbor victims. Germany is now taking over Europe with their new Nazis for the globalists, Muslims. And US leadership is okay with the obliteration of the nationhood of our former allies and ourselves.
Makes one wonder why WW1 or WW2 were fought. So Germany and their fellow Illuminati can win WW3?
Not a fan of Adolf. But after Hitler, when German generals wanted to surrender to the US so we could all fight the Soviets together.....we should have taken them up on it. The Soviets were a bigger longer enemy. Patton was right.
>>As much as I hate to do it, because I live it when people cannot distinguish satire from reality, I must point out, this is satire.
Thanks. It’s impossible to tell satire from from what the Left would call serious discourse anymore.
>>Years ago, someone had published an online article laying out the idea that in reality the Imperialists were the good guys and rebels were the terrorists in the Star Wars sage. It was a great read!
I loved that article (I think it was two articles actually). It changed my whole point of view towards Star Wars and pop culture in general. I think it was Frank Fleming who wrote it on imao.us but the article is gone now.
