THE LONG WAR. The Longest War the USA has been engaged in is not with Afghanistan. It is with Truth. It is against Truth. It is the war for White Supremacy, and it takes many shapes over time and yet never owns up to its own name: War. Waged by other means.
This week’s episodes includes notes on the two recent murders of Mexican nationals at the hands of the US Border Patrol, one of them the 14 year-old Sergio Adrian Hernández Guereca; on the very nasty Prescott Arizona’s City Councilman, Steve Blair who lost his radio job (but not his government gig) over his racist commentary on a new mural in Prescott; and the overall weave of hostilities and violence against the Mexican people by US law agencies, and how this fits into a historical definition of “justice” in the USA.
[slider][A note of thanks to eric of newcomm.org and a video they are now producing, for spurring my thoughts on the Alamo. I put a title card mentioning this at the end of this vid, but as I was wrapping up video production after about four heavy days of work, I was up late and exhausted and didn't realize how fast it went by.][/slider]
