America's Heart Of Darkness Celebrated On Thanksgiving Day & Islamophobia"s " The Stealth Halal Jihadist Turkey"

This fearsome beast is the The Stealth Halal Jihadist Turkey which Islamophobe Pam Geller has been trying to warn her fellow Americans about. (see article below)

Massacre at Wounded Knee December 29, 1890.

It should be noted that the Massacre at Wounded Knee was just another tragic episode in European- Americans' on going four centuries of slaughter of the Aboriginal peoples of North America.

Anyway not to diminish the horrors of America's injustices committed against Native Americans or AfricanAmericans and others but there is an attitude or disposition in the American mind-set which is rooted in a militaristic outlook which when faced with any challenge to the status quo the first impulse is to use violence to settle the matter. From the get go in the history of  America and the Thirteen Colonies in the colonial period the reaction to an act of violence is met with even more violence. For instance a      Native American kills a white settler so the settlers wipe out a village of Native people sometimes is the most horrifying manner imaginable ie setting the village on fire then shooting anyone trying to escape.
And we see this repeated again and again played out at Wounded Knee and at My Lai in Vietnam or in Fallujah in Iraq destroying an entire city killing thousands to revenge the killing of four Americans.

This attitude or mind-set we see being played at the Occupy Protests but we have also seen in our lifetime played out in Vietnam but also in Selma and Montgomery during the Civil Rights era .

Those in positions of power and authority still believe in trampling on the rights of any who dare question the status quo and given America's ultraviolent history we wonder how far will they go. Will they just stop at arresting some 5,000 #OWS protesters or will they go beyond pepper spraying and tear gassing and a few hundred unwarranted beatings  will they next use lethal force. Will we see another Kent State or worse.
This is quite possible since President Obama for instance  is still backing the military in Egypt, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia as the respective regimes  crackdown on dissidents and protesters. The Obama Regime like the Bush Regime before it has little interest in establishing real democracy in any of these nations.
They only believe in the veneer of Democracy symbolized by the iconic purple thumb - having elections is only one part of the creation of a democratic state.

The sickness at the heart of the American Empire

"The Pioneer has before declared that our only safety depends upon the total extermination of the Indians. Having wronged them for centuries, we had better, in order to protect our civilization, follow it up by one more wrong and wipe these untamed and untamable creatures from the face of the earth. In this lies future safety for our settlers and the soldiers who are under incompetent commands. Otherwise, we may expect future years to be as full of trouble with the redskins as those have been in the past..."

Above Quote by L. Frank Baum, author of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, editorial he wrote for the newspaper Aberdeen Saturday Pioneer on January 3, 1891.

The Wounded Knee Massacre

Wounded Knee Massacre Dec. 29 1890 from Wikipedia.

The Wounded Knee Massacre happened on December 29, 1890, near Wounded Knee Creek (Lakota: Čhaŋkpé Ópi Wakpála) on the Lakota Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota, USA. On the day before, a detachment of the U.S. 7th Cavalry Regiment commanded by Major Samuel M. Whitside intercepted Spotted Elk's (Big Foot) band of Miniconjou Lakota and 38 Hunkpapa Lakota near Porcupine Butte and escorted them 5 miles westward (8 km) to Wounded Knee Creek where they made camp.
The rest of the 7th Cavalry Regiment arrived led by Colonel James Forsyth and surrounded the encampment supported by four Hotchkiss guns.

On the morning of December 29, the troops went into the camp to disarm the Lakota. One version of events claims that during the process of disarming the Lakota, a deaf tribesman named Black Coyote was reluctant to give up his rifle claiming he had paid a lot for it.[3] A scuffle over Black Coyote's rifle escalated and a shot was fired which resulted in the 7th Cavalry opening fire indiscriminately from all sides, killing men, women, and children, as well as some of their own fellow troopers. Those few Lakota warriors who still had weapons began shooting back at the attacking troopers, who quickly suppressed the Lakota fire. The surviving Lakota fled, but U.S. cavalrymen pursued and killed many who were unarmed.
By the time it was over, at least 150 men, women, and children of the Lakota Sioux had been killed and 51 wounded (4 men, 47 women and children, some of whom died later); some estimates placed the number of dead at 300. Twenty-five troopers also died, and 39 were wounded (6 of the wounded would later die). It is believed that many were the victims of friendly fire, as the shooting took place at close range in chaotic conditions.
The site has been designated a National Historic Landmark.

What is troubling about such a massacre is that those who carried it out were exonerated and some given medals for doing their duty.
It should always be noted that the settlers in the colonies had been committing massacres of Amerindians since soon after they first established their settlements

But it was not just native Americans whom the European Americans massacred but others as well including the peoples in Haiti , the Philippines , Hawaii and later the Vietnamese , the Iraqis, Libyans , Afghans and the Pashtun . America never seems to tire of killing and then finding a multitude of rationalizations for their actions.

The European settlers showed little or no respect not just for Amerindians but also Africans who were brought to America as slaves their humanity denied and once slavery ended the racism and bigotry continued with the passing of Jim Crow laws , the creation of the Ku Klux Klan , and lynchings and murder .

The American people also demonized other immigrants such as the Irish, Germans, Dutch, Asians , Hispanics, Catholics, Jews and these days a newer target has been people from the Middle East , Arabs and all Muslims. And still America claims it is a bastion of tolerance, human rights and freedoms and democracy.
But the real face of America we have seen recently in the police brutality meted out on the Occupy Movement  .
But we have also seen it in the images from Abu Ghraib of torture and humiliation of POWS or the massacre of Iraqis in Baghdad and Fallujah . Thousands if not tens of thousands of Iraqi citizens have been abused , tortured and murdered in the name of the 1 % to expand the American Empire. And like those Empires preceding America those in positions of power and authority have little concern for the lives of the peoples of those nations they bomb and invade or the citizens of  those nations run by  American friendly brutal regimes.

America is at heart a racist arrogant self-deluded nation which does not honor the dignity of all people but only of those they consider as "Real Americans" whatever that might mean.

It maybe that this racism and xenophobia would diminish if those in power in America refused to defend and promulgate such hatred of various groups such as Blacks, Hispanics, Asians, Arabs or those of a different faith than Christianity ie Muslims, Jews, Buddhists, Hindus or even atheists. .

As in the War with the Indians America erroneously sees itself as besieged as the real victim . And so because of the tragedy of 9/11 America wants its revenge and the death of some one million Iraqis it appears is not enough so they are bombing more countries to get their pound of flesh. This is the trouble with such "Blood Feds" there is no end to them there is always another casualty to be avenged.

And now for something on the lighter side as it were  as the website Islamophobia Today takes a humorous swipe at the Islamophobic New Yorker Pam Geller of Atlas Shrugs who is also the head of the organization "Stop The Islamization of America". So this is just part of the articele go to Islamophobia Today .org to read the rest.

The Stealth Halal Jihadist Turkey: Or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying And Love the Muslim Trojan Horse by: Wajahat Ali, November 24, 2011

American Muslim communities celebrating Thanksgiving with a traditional Turkey feast represents an encouraging sign of integration with American values and rituals.

But, of course, we Muslims fooled you.

Yet again.

You should have known that our baked, brined, and deep-fried masala turkeys were simply veiling our nefarious, anti-American plots to replace McDonald’s arches with minarets and convert the White House to the United Colors of Benetton House.

Pam Geller, our anti-Muslim Paul Revere

However, not all patriotic Americans were gullible and naïve! Nay, some America-holic crusaders, like bloggers Pam Geller and her fearless co-horts, called out our “stealth jihadist turkey plot!” Like modern-day Paul Reveres, they blogged, tweeted and mass mailed our ingenious plot “to submit unassuming Americans to Islam by feeding them halal Turkey” this holiday season. (Halal meat is slaughtered according to Islamic custom, similar to Jewish Kosher laws.)

Our nation’s Cassandra, Pam Geller – the preeminent anti-Muslim blogger and conspiracy theorist aficionado – believes President Obama is a Muslim, illegitimate son of Malcolm X who once went to Pakistan for drugs and jihad. She also uncovered Arabic is not just a language, but actually a spearhead for anti-Americanism. Thanks to her, we discovered radical Islam has infiltrated our government, which is secretly being run by Islamic supremacists. She also accused Muslims of engaging in stealth cultural jihad by wearing their headscarves at Disneyland.

Truth be told, we’ve already converted Goofy. Donald Duck was always our Manchurian candidate. Mickey was the first to turn Benedict Arnold. As for Porky Pig, he better watch out; we’re coming for him next…with our scimitars.

Damn you, Pamela Geller, your anti-Muslim, detective nose is too evolved and sophisticated in sniffing out our dastardly plots!

I guess the feathered, red wattled bird is out of the proverbial bag. There’s no reason to hide the secret any longer.

It’s true. The turkey is our new Trojan Horse.

After spending decades learning to cook and enjoy the famously-dry turkey, we Muslims decided to use the bird to launch our turkey jihad after successfully conquering it in our respective kitchens. We’ve evolved from creeping sharia into states to creeping cholesterol and obesity into American diets. After taking over all the street meat vendors in New York, the Islamization of the turkey bird was inevitable.
