Whenever anyone dares to point out the painfully obvious fact that the U.S. and its leaders have for two hundred years consistently acted in a fashion diametrically opposed to the values which America claims to represent, that person is instantly accused of being anti-American.
Am I anti-American? I don’t think so. But, if believing in free speech and real democracy is anti-American, then I guess I am. If believing that a government should not lie endlessly is anti-American, then I guess I am. If believing that a government should not spy on its own citizens is anti-American, then I guess I am. If believing that a government should not kidnap, torture and murder is anti-American, then I guess I am. If believing that a government shouldn’t slaughter millions of innocent people simply to further enrich the same old handful of psychopathic bastards and their offspring is anti-American, then I guess I am.
(PHOTO: 1912: CUBA. The U.S. puppet dictatorship of Cuba systematically represses, harasses and murders black Cubans and establishes concentration camps into which they are forced. When black people demonstrate against their repression in Oriente province, thousands (estimates vary from two thousand to six thousand) are slaughtered by the U.S.-installed and maintained dictatorship.)

Making the World Safe For Hypocrisy is a chronology of the largely suppressed history of the United States. It is the history that good upstanding Americans are not supposed to know.
