JOHN CHUCKMAN COMMENT: A PIECE ABOUT AMERICA FAILING TO CONFRONT THE DARK HISTORY OF SLAVERY – IT DISPLAYS REMARKABLE NAIVETE CONSIDERING THAT JUST A QUICK GLANCE AROUND SHOWS WASHINGTON BUSY ABUSING, THREATENING, AND KILLING IN A DOZEN LANDS – IMPERIAL GOVERNMENTS DON’T DO APOLOGIES OR ADMIT WRONGDOING – AND THEY SURE DON’T COMPENSATE VICTIMS   Leave a comment

COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE BY ANDREW BUNSCOMBE IN THE INDEPENDENT

 

“Why has America taken so long to confront its dark history?

“Efforts to force debate on the legacy of slavery come at fraught time for nation under Donald Trump”

 

Pretty much empty blather, something not uncommon from this writer.

Does anyone really think that the establishment of the American empire is going to pry up the paving stones in Washington to reveal all the maggots squirming underneath?

America was built on some terrible, terrible practices, slavery being just one of them.

This is a country, we can see right now, abusing and threatening and killing people in a dozen different lands.

The activity is right before our eyes, yet Washington pretends it’s all otherwise than it is.

The horrors of Syria are owing to its own government, so just ignore all those paid cutthroat mercenaries carrying American weapons.

Starving millions of people in Venezuela is supporting democracy. Orwell couldn’t have said it better.

Israeli soldiers kneeling behind a fence and shooting unarmed demonstrators is “restraint.”
