The Rise Of The Fourth Reich
By Indira Rai-Choudhury
Almost beyond speech. I, am an
attorney, an activist, a former Air Force Officer who served in Desert
Storm, a veteran who waited more than 10 years for her VA claim, a champion
of the underdog and tireless fighter, am almost without words, and I
I do not fear for myself,
though perhaps well I ought to...but I have real and palpable fear for
this country, for what is left of Democracy, for the future of my children
and, for the rest of the world.
I watch as everything I was
educated to believe in crumbles around me. I watch as there are secret
detentions, extraordinary renditions, secret trials, disappeared, people
held with no charges and no evidence, searched without judicial review
and without their knowledge, a homeland security office that last spoke
of round ups of "disgruntled" and people from 33 nationalities.
At the same time, our unused military bases are being turned into concentration
camps. And, this is just the start, the time before the sunset provisions
of the Patriot Act or being eliminated either through the Hatch bill
or by the Domestic Security Act...
I watch and I am afraid...
I watch the Zionist JINSA
Cabal carry out its arrogant and racist Program for a New American Century
as it ignores international law and international will, as it commits
war crimes with no shame, and guts benefits to the elderly, to the veterans,
to health care and education, while subsidizing all of those programs
inside "Israel." They call Sharon, the butcher, a man of peace,
as the blood of thousands at Sabra and Shatilla are still wet in my
tears. The US protects Israel, a "nation' who stands in violation
of more UN resolutions than any other nation on earth. Protected as
she holds onto to her atomic weapons . Protected in her racist apartheid
genocide by the US veto used as a bludgeon against the people of Palestine.
And they call those who defend Palestine terrorists. And they call the
deserter that stole the election the Commander in Chief and a leader
I could almost laugh through my tears, but instead, I watch, and I am
I watch this country accept
willingly the loss of all that the founding father's proclaimed to be
important, the destruction of separation of powers, checks and balances,
due process and free speech, the right to privacy, the targeting of
people based on religion and ethnic origins. These are things men fought
and died for and they are now given up willingly.
I watch and I am afraid...
I watch as the rape of the
American taxpayer finances the million dollar a year payola to Cheney
from Halliburton, the dealings of Perle, and the declarations of Woosley
that there is a World War IV and it is against Islam. These Zionist
members of JINSA, who will be running a "free" Iraq, as they
are about to declare war on Syria, or Iran. Endless war, endless bloodshed,
I watch as the rape and sodomy of children in the Gulag that is Camp
Bucca, or Abu Ghraib is tolerated while the men who conspired to evade
International law still stand at the helm of a country I no longer feel
part of. I wonder do the screams of those babies echo in the minds and
hearts of our Senators who have seen these atrocities on tape?
I watch, and I am afraid.
I am afraid because this
is the rise of the Fourth Reich...the rise of racist and immoral power
hungry men that rationalize crimes against humanity and criminalize
I am afraid, and I have run
out of words, or, rather, it would seem words have had no effect, have
done nothing at all to stop the rise of evil and ruthless men to eviscerate
all that once made this Nation great.
I am afraid, and I will become
one of the disappeared. I will either be taken away, or I will leave
this place, this country that I no longer know and now fear. I am a
stranger in my own land...I am a woman without a country.
Beware the rise of the Fourth
Reich...it is upon us.
