Prove Him Wrong

“Civil disobedience is not our problem. Our problem is civil obedience. Our problem is that people all over the world have obeyed the dictates of leaders…and millions have been killed because of this obedience…Our problem is that people are obedient all over the world in the face of poverty and starvation and stupidity, and war, and cruelty. Our problem is that people are obedient while the jails are full of petty thieves… (and) the grand thieves are running the country. That’s our problem.”

~ Howard Zinn, debate versus Charles Frankel – 1970

SPOT ON!!!!!!!!!
I am so disgraced by the American people these days. they are worse than the tyrannical treasonous bastards. At least they are upfront and personal about their intentions to destroy us. The American People however have become spineless DUMBASS SHEEP COWARDS!! It mortifies me to think that I am an American. I do not want the world to group me among these people who lack the courage to do or endure dangerous or unpleasant things for the sake of their freedom!

“Everything Zinn wrote was couched in the language of Marxist class warfare. Key events were omitted. The mass slaughter that followed the Communist takeover of Cambodia? Good luck finding it in “A People’s History.” Like his fellow Communist historians in Moscow, Zinn conveniently “disappeared” the more than 2 million murdered by Cambodia’s Communist dictator Pol Pot.  
Zinn was a member of numerous Soviet front groups, and he helped found the socialist New Party, which helped Barack Obama launch his political career. Zinn mentored a young neighbor in Connecticut, Matt Damon, who went on to be a movie star, and who plugged “A People’s History” in his film “Good Will Hunting.”
Zinn helped found the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC), a communist organization that undermined the non-communist National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) and instigated political violence.”

The useful idiots have been reborn in America. They are easy to identify, they all wear mask.
