Among the more nauseating elements of what has become the American national character is the moral preening, the lecturing of others on the virtuousness of the Exceptional Nation, on America’s incontinent goodness and sense of superiority. The world isn’t buying it. The internet makes fraud impossible.

Start with the domestic. The whole world can see, in what calls itself the richest country in the world, squalid, diseased, often rat-infested encampments of tens of thousands the homeless on the sidewalks of city after city: Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Portland, Austin, on and on. In New York they live in subway stations, often on the trains. Forgotten diseases return. This must cause astonishment in civilized countries such as Japan, South Korea, Singapore, Taiwan, China.

Next, crime, levels of which constitute a measure of civilization. American lawlessness is a wonder of the world. Over seven hundred killed annually in Chicago, three hundred in Baltimore, with perhaps three times as many shot but not killed. Similar numbers per capita can be adduced for many other cities. Equally elevated figures exist for assault, rape, carjacking, mugging, shoplifting. To citizens of Taiwan or South Korea these numbers must look more appropriate to civil war in Sudan than a country that regards itself as an example to the world.

America talks of its commitment to human rights. Yet the world just watched agape as some four hundred cities exploded in looting, arson, and vandalism citing abuse of human rights by the police. Uighurs? As the world can easily see, and does, the black population lives generation after generation in crime-infested, drug-ridden semi literacy. Racial relations are terrible, probably worsening, and so bad that whites dare not walk in black regions. The frequent horrific racial attacks by blacks on whites are carefully kept out of the American mass media, but the world can see them in foreign publications such as the Daily Telegraph.

The fetid, necrotic, and hopeless ghettos are widespread. Consider Newark, Camden, Trenton, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Detroit, Chicago, St Louis, Cincinnati, New Orleans, just to begin.

Human rights? America’s unending race riots appear in graphic detail all around the world. Cities burn, over and over, decade after decade, as American politicians speak of their values, which they seem to want the rest of the world to adopt.

Race relations in the most moral, preachy, and indispensable nation, two examples of many, many dozens that could be given:

Public disaffection is rampant in America. Washington is so afraid of its citizens that it called in over twenty thousand soldiers to assure calm when Biden was inaugurated. The whole earth watched, some in shock, others in amusement, as infuriated citizens stormed the Capitol. During a recent trial in Minneapolis troops were needed to protect the proceedings from an angry population, with stores boarding up in fear of looting. Can anyone imagine this in Tokyo?

And of course, few around the world can hve failed to notice the disparity between China’s quick and effective response to the epidemic and the chaos, verging on anarchy of the American, in which no one appeared to be in charge and much of the population refuses to cooperate with the government.

 

Americans are not an historically aware people and so have little idea of how or why they are regarded as they are abroad. Consider Mexico, where I live. People here know of the Mexican-American War (of which, preposterously many Americans have never heard) as well as the bombardment of Veracruz and Pershing’s incursion. Peoples remember their defeats and humiliations as the victors do not. Mexicans know they are powerless against America, resent it intensely. Latin Americans in general know of the almost endless list of invasions, coups, dictators installed, economic exploitation that Americans have never heard of. Today they see the persecution of Cuba, the attempt to starve Venezuela into giving Washington control of its oil, the coups and murder attempts against Maduro, the coup in Bolivia, other attempts in Ukraine and Byelorussia, on and on.

Many countries have endured American manipulation exploitation, invasion. Americans seldom know of these things, but the countries involved do. For example, China remembers that American (and European) gunboats seized Chinese ports, forced the opium trade on the country, and that American troops have rampaged through Beijing, looting, raping, and killing for sport. There was the burning of the Summer Palace (look it up if you haven’t heard of it.) During the Cold War, Americans saw themselves as on a moral crusade against Communism. The Chinese saw it as a crusade against China. Which is how the “trade war” looks to them now.

How does America appear to much of the world today? As a brutal, utterly unprincipled, destructive, out of control monster wreaking havoc on any country that doesn’t submit.

If this seems to you extreme, you are probably a normal American. But try for a second, if only as an exercise in mental gymnastics, to see how it looks from abroad.

 

America killed hundreds of thousands in Iraq and wrecked it for generations, has killed and killed and killed for almost twenty years in Afghanistan. Supervised the destruction of Libya, currently occupies much of Syria and kills there too, bombs Somalia, supports a grisly Saudi war against Yemen. In an earlier generation it killed millions in Southeast Asia.

At this writing America is the only country of note steadfastly supporting Israel’s search for lebensraum in the West Bank and its conversion of the Gaza Strip into the Warsaw Ghetto, with the IDF inflicting its usual devastation.

Human rights? The world saw the godawful photos of torture in America’s prison at Abu Ghraib. They know of the continuation of “enhanced interrogation,” in Guantanamo. These things could be seen, and were, everywhere from Kathmandu to Finland and all over the Moslem world, where they served to spur enlistment. The American media carefully do not speak of the horrors of the torture camps, or of the death and mutilation caused by the wars. Web sites in other countries are not as reticent. No, the pols speak ok American values.

Which leads to a question I often hear in Mexico: “Why don’t the gringos worry about their own problems instead of causing new ones for the rest of us?”

Amen.

The best case scenario for my homeland is that California gains independence and allies with a rising Asia. I know it sounds laughable, but the coming years are no laughing matter. One must at least have a vision. Failing that, a passport or residency in another nation. Anything but the path we’re on.

    I agree we should not be in all these wars. Let those folks kill themselves, not us

  6. Maybe Stalin was right about the Doctors’ Plot, Jewish doctors scheming to poison him.

    Yes, that’s true. But what Fred carefully doesn’t mention is that a lot of this immigration is subsidized by the gov’t. Messycans and other brown people that have come here send word back to their home countries that Uncle Sam is an easy mark for welfare, free housing, Affirmative Action, free medical care, SSI, etc. They get lots of benefits that native white citizens aren’t eligible for. Many if not most of the homeless are native-born citizens who are being displaced by these invaders as a result of deliberate gov’t policy. The new arrivals aren’t the ones living in homeless camps, that’s for sure.

  11. Fortunately I have some solutions to the problems Fred outlines:

    –End NATO and ANZUS. Civilized countries shouldn’t want to be aligned with a brutal, warmongering, “preening” nation-state. They should want to isolate this virus. I say to the Euros and Bogans and Canucks, fund your own militaries properly. Stop aligning with toxic America. You’ll feel better about yourselves.

    –Shut down all immigration. No one on the planet should be subjected to America’s racism, violence and disgusting sanctimony. That’s why I say the borders should be closed–to protect foreigners.

    They should remain in their countries where they will be safe and all the bad American traits are happily non-existent. Like Mexico for instance, which is truly blessed to be a low-crime paradise. Mexicans who come here must have been hypnotized or something to emigrate to such a hellhole. Probably the CIA put something in their water.

    I also want to congratulate Johnny come lately Reed on addressing the I/P issue. It wasn’t that long ago that he was publishing pox-on-both-houses consensus drivel that could have come from any Creators Syndicate opinion hack. Now he’s at least throwing shade in the right place. He’s pushing 80, so it took a while, but better late than never.

  15. Sulu says:

    What Fred says here is true. America, a once great country, is crumbling. We are witnessing the death throes of the empire. I suspect what is coming next will be a stock market collapse with an accompanying great depression. Then perhaps hyper inflation due in part by the dollar loosing its’ reserve currency status. And finally, another World War, the outcome of which is anyone’s guess.

    All of this can be laid at the feet of the Jews and their incestuous relationship with the military industrial complex and their ownership of the media.The Jews are conducting an undeclared war on the White race. They continually agitate the blacks and tell them that they would all be kings were it not for the White man holding them down. They avoid telling the truth about the overwhelming amount of black on White crime which is rampant in America. They are the progenitors of feminism which has destroyed the relationship between men and women. They own the courts which destroy men in divorce and reward women. Women are propped up at every turn while men are stepped on. The Jews are the producers of the vilest porn imaginable the intention of which is to destroy the moral fiber of the country. Thirty years of internet porn have completely broken down White women’s resistance to having sex with blacks. The Jews convince “woke” mothers to inject little White boys with hormones which will forever damage their sexuality while they tell them that they are girls. They promote homosexuality at every turn, which destroys the concept of a normal family. They allow “pride” marches for every race save Whites and label any White which wishes to do so as a “White Supremacist.” They speak of White privilege, which mostly consists in being cannon fodder for Jewish wars, while ignoring the fact that they are the ones with all the privilege. They claim eternal victim status for themselves while they bomb children in Gaza. Their dual citizenship politicians have infiltrated our government at every level which makes the U.S. the lap dog of Israel. And they label anyone who questions any thing a Jew wishes to do as an anti-Semite.

    They are eternal agents of chaos. They destroy or defile everything they touch. They need to go. Either peacefully or at the point of a gun. But they need to go.

  16. anonymous[139] • Disclaimer says:

    The US is an empire that has been steadily expanding through conquest. This means dropping lots of bombs, dismantling countries, overthrowing governments. It usually arranges for incidents like Gulf of Tonkin to occur so as to have a pretext to attack. In doing so it’s managed to provide a good standard of living for most, but not all, of its inhabitants. It’s safer to be on the inside than the outside. When the US attacks it portrays itself as defending against aggression or ‘spreading democracy’ or ‘promoting our values’, true doublespeak. There’s nothing nice about it. The kicker is that most Americans are so stupid they actually believe the propaganda about bearing gifts to the natives via explosive missiles and helicopter gunships. It’s down to a science whereby the guys in uniform are doing it for a salary rather than being allowed to take a share of the plunder which is reserved for the guys in suits. Once you take off the blinders all this becomes so obvious one wonders what took so long to see it.

  17. The international crimes Fred listed were committed by Washington, not America. And now Washington is destroying America just as surely as it destroyed all those foreign countries. The latest salvo from Washington is to push the 1691 project on government schools. On top of CRT, drag queen story hour, forced masking, etc.; our schools are worse than useless. Poorly educated people cannot sustain a modern, livable country.

    “people living around the world are desperate to come to these United States” ; only the starving people as a result of the exploitation and wars that the US have foisted on them.
    To a starving person, a crust of bread is a luxury.
    “I spent 33 years and four months in active military service and during that period I spent most of my time as a high class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street and the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism. I helped make Mexico and especially Tampico safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefit of Wall Street. I helped purify Nicaragua for the International Banking House of Brown Brothers in 1902-1912. I brought light to the Dominican Republic for the American sugar interests in 1916. I helped make Honduras right for the American fruit companies in 1903. In China in 1927 I helped see to it that Standard Oil went on its way unmolested. Looking back on it, I might have given Al Capone a few hints. The best he could do was to operate his racket in three districts. I operated on three continents.”
    ― : D. Butler, War is a Racket: The Antiwar Classic by America’s Most Decorated Soldier

    99% of the world would not move to America if you paid them.
    Americans are incredible.
    Incredibly arrogant and incredibly stupid.

    “The American is marked, in fact, by precisely the habits of mind and act that one would look for in a man insatiably ambitious and yet incurably fearful, to wit, the habits, on the one hand, of unpleasant assertiveness, of somewhat boisterous braggardism, of incessant pushing, and, on the other hand, of conformity, caution and subservience. He is forever talking of his rights as if he stood ready to defend them with his last drop of blood, and forever yielding them up at the first demand. ”

    The American self image is not a lot different than how a people see themselves. In the minds eye we imagine ourselves as still 25 even if we are 75. No one has a dream where they are old and frail. The brain does not allow it.

    So it is for the American nation. It sees itself as it was before 100 million third world immigrants poured in.. The America of Neil Armstrong landing on the moon. The arsenal of Democracy whose industrial production won WW2 and put V-8 automobiles in suburban driveways.

    Like the cartoon drawing of the evolution of man that depicts an small apelike creature growing taller and more upright until ‘modern man’ emerges that was the American view of itself in the 20th century. Unfortunately we know now a 5 foot tall Guatemalan mestizo does not become a 6 foot tall white American suburbanite simply by moving to America. Instead he ruins our public schools and healthcare system and turns once pleasant suburban communities into shabby barrios.

    Fred, no one in America is saying we are superior. The Democrats – and, by extension, the media, since they are the same thing – have, since 2008, been beating the drum of American racism and claiming that America is not, in fact, exceptional. So please keep up.

    Second. One wonders why you are so very concerned about 100or so citizens “storming” the Capitol, but not about the fires of BLM and Antifa, which have been destroying our cities for months now, while the media ignores the story. Who pays these people (some of them say they are being paid)? Who pays the companies that are delivering food to them, along with pallets of bricks? Why are the Democrats who run the cities allowing their destruction? Why don’t you ask those questions?

    Trust me. If you lived in America, all you would have heard, for more than a decade, is how bad America is. Except during the Trump era, when our president, at least, had some respect for the nation and what it stands for, even if the carrying out of that is imperfect – AND he started no new wars, which should have put him high on your list, for that anyway, but somehow you failed to noticed.

    You should conclude with advice of how to solve at least one of the problems.

    The first thing you need to learn about Fred Reed’s writing is that he doesn’t care about solving problems. He has no solutions. That’s OK, as he’s just a curmudgeon down in Ole Mehico, pretending to be some gonzo journalist because he went on a 2-week old-people’s tour of China.

    What I resent is that Fred Reed derides those who do understand the root of problems and do have solutions (for example, the writers at VDare, Donald Trump – hey, to some degree, and the few actual Conservative politicians). Ask him what he thinks about Ron Paul sometime. He won’t answer here, but it doesn’t matter. Ron Paul is an old fashioned traditional American, but Reed would badmouth him too for providing solutions and shit …

  25. Which leads to a question I often hear in Mexico: “Why don’t the gringos worry about their own problems instead of causing new ones for the rest of us?”

    The Pax Americana was first about keeping communism at bay, and in its stead was installed a vast interconnected commercial enterprise fed by growth. “Growth,” straining against natural limits, is now replaced by credit expansion and it is to maintain this expansion and its vast circulation of “money” that America ventures out into the world.

    That which cannot go on, stops, and the credit expansion will soon end.

    One should not be so naive that one suffers under the delusion that this will be replaced by peaceful co-existence.

    • Agree: Alternate History
  26. Firstly, you’re not abroad, dumbass. “Abroad” means across a body of water. The Rio Grand doesn’t count.

    During the Cold War, Americans saw themselves as on a moral crusade against Communism. The Chinese saw it as a crusade against China. Which is how the “trade war” looks to them now.

    Ronald Reagan, Maggie, Konrad, John Paul II, Lech, and millions of American soldiers, sailors, airmen, engineers and technicians won the Cold War. It wasn’t a crusade exactly, but it was a great moral cause. I don’t see old fart Fred pining for a life in N. Korea. He could have met a cutie years ago and lived in old Ho Chi Minh City if he loved Communism so damn much.

    No, the Chinese didn’t see the Cold War as a crusade against China. You know no history, Fred. Americans felt so bad for the Chinese starving in the 1960s-’70s that we still sent corn to them to go along with their dwindling rice rations, even during this Cold War. (Sure, it was feed corn, not the tastiest, but Commie beggars can’t be choosers.) The Cold War was predominantly about the US vs. the USSR, as we were the ones with the 1000’s of nuke-tipped ICBMs.

    The trade war can “look” any way the CCP wants it to look, but “our” American pols set us up with an extremely raw deal on trade from the mid-1990s on. It’s time to get out, before they can buy up the whole country.* “The Chinese are not happy with their > 20 year-long unfair! trade deal with America”. Not our problem.

    .

    * See the 6-part Peak Stupidity series on “Will America get looted by China?” – Part 1: Intro., … Part 2: Housing, …Part 3: Big Biz, …Part 4: The Fruited Plain, … Part 5: The Widerness, and Part 6 Conclusion: The GoldenRule.

  27. Fred Reed can get stupid at times, but this column takes the cake.

    And of course, few around the world can hve failed to notice the disparity between China’s quick and effective response to the epidemic and the chaos, verging on anarchy of the American, in which no one appeared to be in charge and much of the population refuses to cooperate with the government.

    … and… loving it! So, you’d rather us get bossed around by Dr. Fauci. Fuck that! Next column will have writing disparaging Americans as too compliant, right? Can’t wait…

    For example, China remembers that American (and European) gunboats seized Chinese ports, forced the opium trade on the country, and that American troops have rampaged through Beijing, looting, raping, and killing for sport. There was the burning of the Summer Palace (look it up if you haven’t heard of it.)

    OK, let’s see, this was how many? 150 years ago? In the meantime back at the same time as the War Between the State here, there was A Great War never even heard of – the Taiping Rebellion, in which 20,000,000 men died directly and up to 50,000,000 other Chinese people are said to have starved from the disruption. Oh, then the Japanese came and raped Nanjing and lots of the rest of the country. Oh, and then Chairman Mao took over, implemented that hard-core Communism that America had such a bug up its ass about, and inadvertently starved another 30,000,000 to 40,000,000.

    Something tells me that the seizing of Chinese ports is not a thing that your average Chinaman gives a rat’s ass about. Hell, they’ve got KFCs everywhere, and they likely think that Colonel Sanders was the leader of the American Volunteer Group, flying material to Mr. Peanut across the hump. (Speaking of all this, there is Peak Stupidity‘s humorous take on this – “Superpower Battle of the Chicken Titans – Sanders v Tso”.)

    There’s no doubt that America is in bad shape. We know the government HATES traditional Americans, especially White middle-class men. We know that black disfunction is an albatross. We know that a beyond-broke country should have its military at home, perhaps defending the southern border. WE! GET! THAT! [/Tucker] How about quit badmouthing the people who try to do something about it, you self-righteous asshole?

    Most of the rest of this shit is all in your head, Fred. Put down the bottle, and get off the TV.

What about Julian Assange, abandoned by every one of Australia’s prime ministers, who all kiss Washington’s dirty rear orifice for fear of finishing up like Gough Whitlam if they try to make Australia independent?

    Thankfully, American privatization has not so far gone as far in Australia as in Chile, and the Australian Constitution, noting the nastier aspects of the American Constitution and electoral system, avoided then. Australia is still heavenly relative to the hell that is America. No voter ID but that name can only vote once, must be on the roll for just that electorate, and all votes on paper and counted by hand. No officially recognized political parties, party names a private matter. Heaven.

    Something Australia needs to do on its path to independence is find another name for its currency. Australia abandoned pounds, shillings and pence in 1966, went decimal, but stupidly (or for some sinister reason) called it the Dollar. We need to find a short word in an Aboriginal language and adopt that for our currency.

    Washington is destroying America just as surely as it destroyed all those foreign countries

    Yes, there’s a lot of truth in that – but it’s only a component of the malaise. Another huge factor is social discipline – a recognition that you must earn your right to be a part of society by contributing, by following rules even if you don’t feel they apply to you, by willingly practising self-denial when called for and by considering the safety and comfort of others before yourself. What we once called “old fashioned values”. Yet another part of this is the social engineering dictates coming out of the over-funded, bloated universities – fighting racism with racism – even as the entertainment and pop industries systematically trash the value of human intellect and culture.

    For the USA, in particular, the very idea of curbing personal ‘freedom’ is ludicrous. Yet in the far more disciplined societies of East Asia this is not the case – Japan, Korea and, in its own way, China too, show justifiable pride in what they have accomplished – and their people have a strong sense of shame if they fall short in meeting expectations. Do these cultures stifle dissent? Yes, certainly they do – and they have to – but perhaps they’ve found a balance between freedom and repression that we might envy.

    The protections that membership of a society affords come at a price.

  55. Lack of historical knowledge about the Mexican War is part of America’s cultural sickness. This was one of the greatest wars and triumphs in American history, and won the entire Southwest including California for America.

    But in our current system of theology, this is now denigrated as evil colonialism, imperialism, and even racism. Thus it is quietly forgotten rather than taught to Americans as a feat of historic greatness by a young, dynamic, and expanding nation.

    This is cardinally different from contemporary American imperialism which pointlessly inflicts pain on others for no gain to itself (quite the opposite).

    I agree with your overall assessment, Fred. The arrogance, preening, hypocrisy, and destructiveness of our political class are a wonder to behold. As always, a fiery missile launched from the south bringing insight and enlightenment.

    That said, the American people are indeed not going to win any prizes in any revival of Jay Leno’s man-on-the-street interviews but in their defense it’s hard to get a handle on what the political class is doing when we all live in a mile-deep layer of steaming propaganda about homosexual love, interracial partnering, white perfidy, capitalist exploitation, strong women, “climate change” [nonsense], POC wonderfulness, Russian perfidy, our amazing ally in the Middle East, righteous AUMFs, indispensable NATO, and the rules-based international order. Nor is the total Jewish political control of America anything that will be discussed on the incomparable Fox News channel, and you’ll wait a good while to hear anything about black hatred of whites and of America or of their near universal inability to build a functioning, thriving culture, eject thuggery from their midst, abandon dependency, and give up their eternal victimhood.

    Our cities exploded in looting, arson, and vandalism because black will not govern themselves and it had precisely nothing to do with any supposed “abuse of human rights by the police.” Tucker Carlson, to his credit, drove a stake through that particular monster in the worst way.

    The black population does indeed live “generation after generation in crime-infested, drug-ridden semi literacy” but is there a white person (a) over six who (b) doesn’t live in NYC, Portland, Seattle, or Austin and (c) who doesn’t have a degree from an Ivy League “university” who doesn’t know that this is due 100% to black moral, intellectual, and cultural failure. Baltimore and D.C. schools are number one and two respectively in per pupil funding . . . and the academic results? Down on the deck. Still clinging to that “thinking white” thing. Some black Atlanta school administrators went to jail after deciding the only way to deal with black academic failure was to pad the test scores. And you have to be brain dead to think that 80% of black births to single mothers is anything but an unalloyed disaster and the perfect formula for breeding young black criminals.

    Racial relations are terrible, probably worsening, because hatred for whites is being fanned by black so-called leaders and savored by the black population. Ever watch what happens in those BLM riots? Pure hatred and simian joy and the salutary therapy of Reeboks and a wide-screen TV.

    “The fetid, necrotic, and hopeless ghettos are widespread” — because of black failure. “Unending race riots” — because of black criminality.

    Cut to the chase, after decades of white contortion, trillions of dollars expended, and no end of self delusion on multiculturalism, the black response to a simple “now show us what you got” has been pathetic. Anyone born in or resident of the U.S. could until recently be said to have won life’s lottery but non-foreign born blacks remain mired in truculence and fairy tales about white supremacism.

    Next, the election thieves called in over twenty thousand soldiers “to assure calm”? It is to laugh. No one, repeat, no one, threatened to drop a gum wrapper on the National Mall let alone disturb the peace of the Temple of our Democracy. All bogus. Theater. Pathetic, cringing posturing and narrative huckstering. “Infuriated citizens” in short supply and for sure no “storm[ing]” of the Capitol. What’s next? Hand wringing over “incitement”?

    Finally, the Chinese Communist monsters saw the crusade against communism as a crusade the Chinese variant of that hideous cancer. If Americans have a lot to account for the Chinese communists can suck it up too and take a look at themselves. The Great Leap Forward and the Cultural Revolution were orders of magnitude worse than anything the evil Americans have inflicted on the world in recent decades. And that’s saying a lot.

    Excellent point about proposing solutions. Americans can’t even grasp the danger of open borders and “multiculturalism.” If massive numbers of foreigners taking over your country don’t wake you up I don’t know what will. There’s Jewish media dominance, of course, so it’s not like anyone in public life harps on these things. Cong. Steve King in Iowa, a true immigration patriot, was easily defeated in the primary so even “conservative” Iowan didn’t have his back. A later illegal murder of a young woman no doubt meant nothing to those people.

    On the Libya point I think it’s not as though Gaddafi was the last and only bulwark against the northward wave of migrants. Migrants could be backed up for a hundred miles and it wouldn’t mean they could make it to Europe. The missing element is not Gaddafi’s helpful cooperation; it’s European courage and resolution in the face of invasion. The Greek/Bulgarian border with Turkey is a mere 175 miles yet Europeans act like they would have to defend across the Steppes of Russia themselves. Landmines (covered by fire) and just one dinghy towed back to Libya followed by just one sinking in sight of the Libyan coast would stop it ALL in an instant but instead it’s hair pulling and chest beating and “deary me” ad astra and on rolls the wave. Wir schaffen das, German for “we surrender,” is I think the current battle cry, interesting stirrings within the French military notwithstanding.

    Well, Fred aka showmethereal,

    Drug prohibition is a recent thing.

    It is a cancer on the United States and on Mexico. It has caused hundreds of thousands, millions of deaths.

    If human history continues, the 90 years of prohibition will be looked upon as the most disastrous, ignorant, cruel, murderous episode of all times.

    My theory is that El Fred is afraid to tell the truth about Jews because he knows that they have the power to disrupt his social security check, which probably makes up the lion’s share of his income. I could be wrong but I bet I’m not. When ever you wonder why a person behaves a certain way you usually don’t have to look much further than self interest.

    The thing I find really telling is that El Fred has not once addressed the issue of the so called “dancing Israelis.” That one incident alone proves beyond a doubt that the Israel government at least knew 911 was going to happen and did nothing to warn the U.S. It also begs the question as to whether or not 911 was in fact orchestrated by Israeli intelligence in order to get the U.S. to destroy the enemies of the Jews. It’s not much of a stretch.

    But what is El Fred’s, the legendary journalist of old, response to the incident of the dancing Israelis? Crickets. El Fred shot his last journalistic load years ago. He is now cowering in some casa in Mexico hoping he doesn’t run out of money before he runs out of time. He’s not about to open his mouth about the Jews.

I admit to feeling some schadenfreude when I see images of burning cities in the USA, because that is what your foreign policy has wrought on us whites in South Africa. Rainbow nation? My ass!

    El Fred’s, the legendary journalist of old, response to the incident of the dancing Israelis? Crickets

    worse than crickets

    he mocks those who seek the truth about 9/11 as deluded and unhinged nuts wearing aluminum foil on their craniums.

    https://www.unz.com/freed/legion-of-the-tinfoil-hat/

    I agree with you that his myopia is motivated by self-interest, but I doubt it’s just to keep the SS checks coming in.

    I suspect Fredo earns quite the generous stipend for his fulsome shilling. He now lives in an upscale gated community down there in his adopted homeland. Travels often, and ‘bon vivants’ from time to time at schmoozey DC area venues with fellow whorenalists and assorted professional liars and elites.

    Telling the truth, that Israel has American blood on its hands vis-a-vis 9/11, would slam those doors shut in Fredo’s face.

    The question for me is, what is more important to Fredo..

    The shekels? Or the social acceptance?

    Consider someone like John Roberts, who has all the money anyone could need, but betrayed his oath, his nation, his fellow countrymen and his soul to continue to be a darling of the DC cocktail party circuit.

    With some men, their vanity (and back-slaps from people who no-doubt despise them) is far more important than their integrity.

    Don’t blame the average white American for what was wrought in South Africa.

    Most whites I know were not keen to see our brothers and sisters in South Africa sent reeling into wide-spread farm torture/murders and rape land.

    But our elites were. And their assorted celebrity whores and stooges. Some of the ((elites)) were motivated by an ethnic iron imperative to see all white nations destroyed, it’s true. While others were simply motivated by the shekels and continued fame and laudations from their media. Like Bruce Springsteen and so many others. But that certainly wasn’t limited to American celebrities. Look at Sting and all those Brits piling on demanding white South Africa commit suicide.

    Or just consider England, who waged a war on South Africa to steal the gold and diamonds on behalf of their Jewish masters, over a hundred years ago. It was Perfidious herself who invented concentration camps for the purpose of killing the Dutch farmers and resistance fighter’s families.

    Since then, Perfidious has done all it can to destroy Western civilization on behalf of its ((master)).

    But I still take no pleasure in all those reports of little British schoolgirls being systematically gang raped by sub-human scum. Like the typical middle and working class American, those girls had nothing to do with the destruction of South Africa, or Germany, or their own doomed island.

    Rather it’s the elites whom I blame. The F. W. de Klerks and the British pedophile royal family, and all the assorted shills and professional liars who make up their fifth column.

    The typical white person of South Africa is much more like the typical white person of America, (or white father in Rotherham) struggling to get by in a culture and societal tenor that is brutally and viscously anti-white. Cash Gernon is just as dead as Brendin Horner.

    It’s our elites and their whores, (celebrities, writers, etc..) who’re selling us all out. Not the beleaguered typical white American, who is today the world’s whipping boy, and upon whom all things, from wars to Gaza to Detroit to Third World poverty, are blamed.

    He did it!

    You could very well be correct. El Fred was probably once a serious journalist. Now he may be no more than a minor whore for the Jews. In any case I no longer have any intellectual respect for the guy.

    Also, he may fear trouble when re entering the U.S.A. if he tells the truth about the Jews. What ever is the answer Fred is done as a journalist.

    Sulu,
    Fred is 100% service connected. That’s about 3200/month. My guess is his wife also collects around 1k/month as his health provider.
    No doubt the man worked his entire life and built some capital. He prolly has the good sense to squirell a few nuts away even today.
    Nobody is touching that VA pay. SS, yeh, it can be garnished but not VA.
    and what the fuck…let the guy have his remaining years doing/saying what he wants. Ya think he’s ready to say , up men and to your posts and let’em know ol virginia stands?
    I think Fred should drink his wine and collect his hard earned coin.

    Close relatives are ineligible to to collect federal monies for being someone’s healthcare provider. As a general rule, nobody is eligible to collect federal monies for healthcare services rendered overseas to a retired US citizen residing overseas.

    I’m not so sure that Fred was in the military long enough to collect that \$3,200.00 a month check you’re talking about either.

    The VA has for many years provided for such a thing. I know many vets whose wives(and one gf) that get paid. It’s about a grand per month.
    Veterans-Directed Care
    Family members, including spouses, can be hired as personal care providers. The Veteran’s Health Administration sets the hourly rate that personal care providers are paid, which is estimated at \$8.00- \$22.00, depending on the geographic area of the country. Not all veterans are eligible.Jul 11, 2019
    I found a more detailed explanation but it was a pdf and…
    Fred isn’t retired from the military he’s disabled.
    I don’t know Mr Reeds biz. I’m only speculating.
    Fred was grievously injured. I don’t know his rating. But it’s a 100%. You don’t have to serve 20 years to get a fucking check.
    What do you think happens if some poor bloke loses his legs the 1st day of his service? To the curb? No alms for you, laddie.
    No, they are provided for.
    I don’t know the exact numbers for each rating but, yeh, Mr Reed is 100% and he doesn’t have to reside in Amerika to receive it.
    I remember him clearly writing about coming…’home’…to recieves med care and he went to a VA facility.
    Mr Reed, regardless of anyone’s opinions of what should have been, was carrying a rifle and he damned near got his dick buried.
    Many he went to high school with did get their dicks buried and, if they had survivors, they received monthly payments.
    This I’m very sure of.
    And Mr Reed is underpaid for his service to this country.
    What’s your vision worth?

    I don’t know how the VA determines much of anything.

    I know without any doubt Veterans that i know personally live abroad.

    [MORE]

    I know a guy that’s been living in Thailand for years. I last saw him in 2016. He didn’t seem to be having any probs.
    He told me he could get just as good med care there as here but he wanted to come here to get it.
    He was in-patient for 3 months at mt home.
    I think i know him ok. He said he knew many vets in Thailand. He used his gi bill ed benefits Togo to school in Thailand.
    Seems to me the gov’t would’ve known that.
    I know a few other guys that live in various places;
    One in the Philippines. He Seems to be doing ok and his Filipino wife is his primary home health care provider and he can get services in the Philippines but he mostly goes to Guam.
    Stands to reason the 🇺🇸 gov’t knows about that.
    I know another guy that has lived mostly in saipan for years. He gets his check. I don’t know about his paramour but i figure she’s in on the hustle to boot.
    I can’t say i know directly any well but i know without a doubt their are many that live in Mexico(and that’s prolly most likely where most live that live outside the 🇺🇸 but i don’t have numbers it’s only a guess)but yes, for sure, if they have a certain service connected disability rating and they have a significant other then, yeh, I’ll bet ya they are in the game as well.
    I know a guy locally that isn’t married, he’s been with the same woman for years (10+) and i know her and she draws from that program.
    Maybe the VA considers them common-law? I don’t know how they decide shit. I know Miriam wouldn’t lie about it and I’m sure my eyes don’t decieve me when she shows up Togo to some training seminar(i don’t what it is)at the local VA.
    Look, you can find shit out for yourself.
    The VA ain’t hiding.
    And what makes you think Mr Reed doesn’t have ties, physically, to Amerika and if/when he comes here for med care(which he does, so according to him) that his wife doesn’t travel with him and she does what the VA asks of her to qualify?
    Do you think they would pass that up?
    No one i know does.
    Not everyone is eligible and i don’t know what the average pay is for home health care providers but you can believe what ya want. It’s true. Some(those with a certain service connected rating) qualify.
    I doubt the 🇺🇸 gov’t deposits money into bank accts in North Korea or Iran or…ya get the idea. Lots of service connected vets live in all sorts of places and they are getting their service connected pensions.
    And if their is anyway their, say wife/lover/partner in crime can qualify hmm I’d say they are on the list.
    Say Mr Reed wife only gets 300\$month. I’m arbitrarily throwing that out. That’s 300 she didn’t have and she is for a fact providing care for Mr Reed that the VA is, in a sense, saving money by not providing.
    Look, guy, 1/4 of my neighbors have someone come by 2 maybe 3x a week(they have nobody)and those people(9x out of 10 it’s a black woman or so it seems and I’ve met everyone of them)and they clean there apt or…just do shit for them that they cant much do for themselves.
    So…you tell me, I’m a skeptical motherfucker, what do you know that i don’t?
    Tell me how this whole thing I’ve said isn’t jibing?
    What are ya not sold on?
    I live in an area with a major VA facility. It serves a very wide area. like fucking large. Many many very live here and i know several that have a qualifying%that’s service connected and their hook up or squeeze out wife or whatever(cause like you can better believe this shit…those significant others change for some often guy…i know a guy whose been thru least 7 that i know of and yep…they all draw and for this geo location it’s about 1k a month. Those babes wouldn’t hang around if they were doing shit straight for lov my friend…such is life).
    I don’t qualify tho i am service connected. If my rating was higher do you think i wouldn’t have a woman on the payroll?
    I have to do with what i have. Some do better. The better did some.
    Happy Memorial day my friend.
    Not saying go out and thank a vet but ira Hayes died drunk, in a pig pen, frozen to death.
    Ya feel good about that?
    Why should we let another ira Hayes die without someone benefitting enough to keep him from, hell, at least, not freezing to death in a pig pen.
    Today, if you qualify, you could find yourself a gal that would be paidto put a blanket over him and live another day.
    Is that fair?
    The VA doesn’t really have the staff to do what someone lives with you can so…they get paid.
    Been that way for years.
    Hoops and all. Even the disabled can find a way to jump thru the hoop if the money is right.
    Why wouldn’t you hope Mr reeds wife puts a few dollars in her pocket? Don’t you think that would help the veteran, Mr Reed? Ain’t that worth it?
    How do you know Mr Reed doesn’t keep ties to the US what with having 2 daughters and all.
    If I’m not mistaken he once wrote the only 2 things he ever did right was those girls.
    Maybe he has an address in ol ferginny for all we know but i seriously doubt if Mr Reed can put a few extra dollars in his wife’s pockets, uh, Mr Reed knows how to add and i think he’d ya know add that.
    Ya ain’t gotta approve.
    That’s how it is guy.
    Say hi to a vet today. Many are just as miserable as anyone else. I wouldn’t thank them because none i know want it.
    Somebody else started that shit.
    Nope…I’d say most would be happier with having a couple extra bucks. Just like the rest.
    Get it while ya can.
    Or get out.
    Or do whatever.
    Happy Memorial day.

    They get lots of benefits that native white citizens aren’t eligible for. Many if not most of the homeless are native-born citizens who are being displaced by these invaders as a result of deliberate gov’t policy. The new arrivals aren’t the ones living in homeless camps, that’s for sure.

    Absolutely!

    And the fact that Fred doesn’t mention that is why he’s the one guilty of moral hypocrisy.

    Oh, I see. Since Fred is “blue collar” he gets a pass on being a whore for the Jews? No need for him to ever address the “dancing Israelis” and the fact that this proves at the very least that Israeli intelligence knew 911 was coming but conveniently neglected to inform America since a new war would serve their interests? No need for Fred to mention that instead of being our ally, Israel routinely conducts spying operations in America and doesn’t give a damn if thousands of our citizens are killed by a terrorist attack? Better for Fred to parrot the official story. No need to rock the boat. To do so would be to engage in real journalism.

    Come to think of it the first talking head I saw when I first switched on the news on that fateful day was Dan Rather informing the public that considering the usual workforce present in the twin towers that immediate death toll could surpass 10,000. Of course that number diminished with time to less than 3000. Funny how many Jews had doctor appointments that day. But of course all of this escapes El Fred. And apparently you also.

    Fred’s a good goy. They’ll smear and kill him last.

    The jews’ hatred of white America is astounding. Everything anti-white and anti-American can be traced to that tribe, its money, and its representatives in the academy. It matters not that you do not hate them: they hate you passionately. Americans simply do not know their enemies. Every pathology that has taken root in this country since the 1960s can trace its origins to that tribe and its ministrations and machinations. Give the kikes one more generation and the job will be done. Fred Reed knows this, but he’s a coward, and he wants to be part of the in-crowd, so he vilifies America and lets the self-chosen people off the hook for the sins they commit.

    I was in college when I pieced it all together, and came to understand who championed the anti-white and anti-male dialectics and practices university students of my generation were forced to endure. Every fucking book excoriating white men was seemingly written by a jew, while they would always ignore their own iniquity or blame whitey for every dullard black who raped and murdered. The teachers in school who attacked men were invariably jewesses, and the men they targeted were always white, gentile, Christian. The most prolific, self-serving liars in class were, you guessed it, members of that same tribe.

    Our grandparents were right, and we laughed at them and allowed ourselves to be anaesthetized to the point that our survival instinct as a white race is moribund. And we were taught to hate ourselves by the same motherfuckers who want our sons dying (again) for israel.

    Fred Reed is a pussy and a piece of shit. He’s also a cowardly liar who peddles a fake narrative that is causing Americans real pain.
