I know I already posted twice this week, but I felt the need to post this Sunday morning. Those of us who blog, use social media, or hang out in the forums of alternative political sites sometimes spend so much time talking to each other that we forget what the Normeis are saying –the blissfully ignorant man on the street.
I was in a McDonalds recently, and overheard part of a conversation of a group of three 20 something white male patrons. They were discussing foreign policy, while fiddling with some type of playing cards. They did not appear to be religious, and the language was not G rated. They seemed to like Trump. One of them wanted to cut back on all foreign aid –except to Israel. I also heard one venture that Iran hates the U.S. more than it hates Israel, that Iran is developing a nuke to use on America, and that if Israel finds out in time they might attack Iran to defend the U.S.A. I am not joking. Someone does not understand the relationship between the head and the tail, or the last 30 years of U.S. policy in the Middle East.
Then I was talking to a relative last week. She fears North Korea, and thinks that Russia and Iran have nuclear weapons that they would like to use on us. Yes, your read that right- and IRAN. None of the Neo-Cohen talking heads that I am aware of are even claiming that Iran has a nuke, only that they allegedly want to develop one. Apparently mainstream Christian radio, which this woman regularly listens to, is more wacked out for Zion than Fox News is.
Finally, my Dad was in a public place on Saturday –wearing a bright yellow cap with the Gadsden rattlesnake and Dont Tread On Me emblazoned on the front of it. A woman asked him if he was a veteran, because she saw the hat, and then thanked him for his service. The Gadsden flag of Revolutionary War fame was designed by Christopher Gadsden of South Carolina. A variant of the Gadsden was used by the Continental Navy, and another variant by the Culpepper Minutemen unit. I always associated the Gadsden flag with the American Revolution, the patriot/militia movement, and political protest. But in this woman’s mind the Gadsden flag somehow was connected to being a veteran of the armed forces of the present day American empire. Okay. Be advised: Normies often think strange and illogical things.
