From the very origins of its existence, Continual War, Mass Murder and Genocide have been the cereal and milk for the Amerikan Empire. This monstrosity of assassination has maintained various wars simultaneously, both against foreign nations across the globe while waging vicious campaigns of warfare against its own citizens.
Many fine examples have included the Drug War, the War against the Mormons, the War against African-Americans, the War against Islam, the War against the Indian, the War against International Communism and Subversion, the War against Alcohol, the War against Tobacco, the War against Terrorism, the War against the Human Body and Mind, and the Class War against the Poor.
From its fetid birth, this imperial abomination has also maintained another covert, hidden, brutal ideological war: the War against History. For example, how many world inhabitants know about the US government’s incessant war against the Haitian people?
The sky darkness held shears of red strips dripping through it. It was as if some pirate phantasm had taken his saber, and then like some madman, ripped apart the black drape of night sky. Some people said that a red skull with a bloody heart was also present in the blackened, navy blue, evening cast over. Baron Samedi cackled in the distance. A murder had happened.
How ironic that the murder took place on November 1st, All Souls Day, or the Day of the Dead, remembered in most of Latin America. And it took place right in the undead city of Port-au-Prince, Haiti, the land of the Voodoo Lords of the Night. The ominous year was 1919. The unfortunate victim possessed the colonized name of Charlemagne Péralte. The murderers were an organized mob of thugs and criminals recruited through some fancy pants, state terrorists way up north.
This rabble of hoods represented Haiti’s new invaders and occupiers; ever since the Haitians had gained their first independence and freedoms some 110 years earlier, and after suffering hundreds of thousands of victims from a ten-year guerrilla war fighting the French, Spanish and English colonizers, slavers and invaders. The particular culprit represented the new Amerikan Empire on the world stage, and which had recently robbed the Cubans, the Boricuas, (Puerto Ricans), and the Filipinos of their own freedoms.
This Amerikan Empire invaded, occupied and murdered Haitians en masse, starting in 1914, the same year the mass murder campaign began across the Atlantic on the continent of Europe. The Amerikan invaders-occupiers would then stay until the mid 1930s, and once again, invade eighty years later. The genocide against the Haitian people still continues up to this very moment that I write this essay.
Now it is under the cover of the United Nations, or the UN Army. The Amerikan Empire murders gracefully in Europe, North Africa and in West Asia under the phony initials of NATO, and it does the same under the phony initials of the UN in Latin America.
After the US Empire invaded Haiti in 1914, Haitian patriots moved into the warpath of resistance. Many Haitians knew about their glorious history of combat. The Haitian Empire had once owned the whole island of Hispaniola, which included the then phony republic, called the ‘La Republica Dominicana.’ In order to safeguard this phony republic in the 1930s, the US government supported a dictator there, named Trujillo, who would murder over 30,000 Black Haitians and Dominicans found in ‘his territories.’
Similar to other invaded countries fighting against the Amerikan Empire, the armed resistance in Haiti against the Amerikan occupation was quite successful. The US government began sending in Marine invaders to complete the ‘foreign policy goals.’ The Marines used almost every conceivable atrocity against ‘the enemies.’ from burning prisoners alive to using captured ‘insurgents’ for bayonet practice. Like all criminal syndicates, the Marine officers especially went after ‘the leaders’ of the patriots.
They simply chose an educated and eloquent man who supported the Haitian rebels. When they captured the man, Charlemagne Péralte, the armed goons nailed him alive to an old, colonial wooden door originally built through the labor of kidnapped African slaves. The sadists laughed as he died miserably on the door-cross. The joke among the Marine officers was – ‘what does one expect when dealing with niggers speaking French.
These officers also brought over their extreme racial hatred against African-Americans, while lynch murder was still a legal practice throughout the continental United States. The US occupiers had also introduced Amerikan racism to multi-racial Cuba and imposed a form of American-style institutional racism on the island. When the Afro-Cubans revolted around this same time, the Cuban political flunkies resorted to American style lynching in order to deal with the rebellion.
The Haitian resistance would well continue until the end of the Amerikan occupation, in the 1930s. But the Empire did not leave the island in vain. By the end of the occupation, they had murdered over 30,000 Haitians.
When the Amerikan Empire invaded Haiti once again in the 1990s, the US Army kidnapped President Aristide and left him somewhere in Africa! They would continue to murder Haitians, from outright killings of protesters to allowing outbreaks of hunger and disease. The Empire has notched up another list of Haitian victims within its Great Amerikan Holocaust. And yet, the holocausts, genocides and mass murders continue…
Those actual atrocities have no publicly opened records, no media accounts, nor do most Americans discuss such outrages. This morbid and criminal history somehow does not exist – except in the margins, such as this Anarcho-historian blog.
Few people know about this historical and concurrent genocide in Haiti, nor do many people know about the Amerikan genocide in the Philippines, during the early part of the 20th century – or the concurrent genocide in Afghanistan perpetuated by the same Empire since the beginning of the 21st century.
In the human condition, people always want to find the murderers and hopefully see justice for the victims. This natural desire for justice explains the popularity of TV crime shows, mystery dramas and even donut cop shows. Why is this not the case with the Amerikan Empire of Sociopaths?
The Amerikan Empire since its birth in 1790, or the US Government in Washington D.C., has been deeply involved in a long-standing War against History. Its hideous methods have represented complete white washes of the historical records. This infernal technique completely denies the atrocities, even washing them off the state historical files, while only leaving the actual historical accounts of its holocausts to marginalized historians and out of print books.
Other repellent methods have included the use of media nostalgia, nondescript archaeology, (such as Department of Interior sites found across the continent), museum building in the capital of D.C., and cheap selling junk trinket stores, such as antique furniture and reproduced artworks in tourist towns. All of these methods trivialize actual history while leaving out the multiple atrocities of Empire. The Amerikan Empire replaces actual history with low culture superficiality allowing no connection to our present times.
The United State Department of Interior has thousands of historical sites across the continent related to ‘American history.’ I once visited an old slave plantation in Louisiana, and not once did the antebellum, dressed up ‘ladies’ in fine gowns and white skin privilege, mention African slavery during their presentations. They talked about furniture pieces and interior decorating styles from the nineteenth-century, yet the African slaves who had originally built the plantation-prison set up never entered the dialogue.
On a fun visit to Miami, Florida, I decided to visit the National Cop Museum as a joke. The Museum showed Amerika’s cops as the paragons of public virtue, crime fighters, expert weapons handlers, and defenders of the good citizens versus the bad ones. Not one of the exhibits mentioned racism against African-Americans, the legal rights of police to murder American citizens, police militarization, police immunity from state prosecutions, rampant corruption within urban police departments, or even the outrageous crimes committed by policemen found regularly in the news.
Then there are the themed visits of historical sites, such as Jamestown, Virginia, Independence Hall, Philadelphia, Tombstone, Arizona or Virginia City, Nevada, where clownish people dressed up in historical type costumes try to lure ignorant visitors into the ‘tourist traps,’ such as gift stores that sell trinket junk, overpriced restaurants with GMO laced food, and shabbily reconstructed jails, mines, workshops, opera houses and old government buildings.
The capital of the monster, Washington D.C., remains the absolute master of museum, fake history madness. There must exist over fifty museums around the National Park Mall alone. Within that square area stands a museum for every conceivable cultural interest – yet none of them mention the Amerikan holocausts and genocides – including the Holocaust Museum!
Amerikan TV sitcoms have shown certain historical epochs, such as the 1950s, as simpler times of fun and innocent hi-jinks. ‘Happy Days’ and ‘Laverne and Shirley’ are good examples. Did not the 1950’s feature a nasty dose of Fascist McCarthyism and general cultural repression? If the 1950s were so innocent and moral, then why did films, such as ‘Rebel Without Cause’ and ‘The Wild Ones’ incite such powerful emotions on the young people who viewed them? Nostalgia and clouded perception memories win, while historical actuality disappears.
We can also cite the hundreds of History professor cowards that bow their heads when speaking to six figure gaining, hack university administrators, and who fear the telling of truth to their ‘right-wing’ students about the historical crimes of the US government.
We have the outrageous cable shows on the American TV, called History Channels, where most of the shows have nothing to do with History whatsoever. Are we even shocked when American state, public high schools teach ‘Social Studies’ instead of any real history?
Some bad historians have stated that Amerikan state terrorism and mass murder began when Bush II declared a coup d’état after the ‘plane bombing’ of the World Trade Towers in NYC. Other commentators, within the more right-wing perspective, cite the Clinton Presidency in the 1990s. Then other intellectuals, have cited President Roosevelt’s National Socialism during the 1930s, or President Wilson’s involvement in World War I, or the Amerikan Empire’s official birth during the Spanish-American War at the end of the nineteenth-century, or the Civil War, (or depending on one’s regional perspective, the War of Northern Aggression against the South), during Lincoln’s presidency in the 1860s. They still forget the basic history of this imperial monster.
When the US government was only eight years old, 1798, the Federalists in power enacted and implemented the Alien and Sedition Acts against all forms of subversion. This same US government successfully prosecuted and imprisoned ten people under such a legal outrage. The amount of ten people does not even come close to the number of prisoners in today’s Amerikan gulag-concentration camp-prison system; yet only a few years later, an anti-Federalist President sent in a US Marine contingent to invade the Kingdom of Tripoli, (Libya), and this would not represent the last time the Amerikan Empire had invaded this sovereign country. The United States bombed the country in the 1986 and then again in 2011.
But those ten people in late eighteenth-century America, and those Libyans in 1805, 1986 and 2011, all had important lives just like we have today. Just like the millions of forgotten historical victims of Amerikan state terrorism across the States and across the globe. None of those people deserved their fates due to the crimes of Amerikan imperialism.
Let us cite the historical list of victims from Amerikan state terrorism, intentional genocide and its outrages: Native nations during the second half of the nineteenth-century, the Filipinos some years later, the Japanese in the 1940s, the Koreans in the 1950s, Cambodians, Laotians and Vietnamese in the 1960s-70s, and the Haitians, Iraqis, Russians, Syrians, Serbs, Germans, Central Americans, Chinese, Mormons, Poor Americans, Cubans, Puerto Ricans, Hawaiians and other Pacific Islanders, Muslims, Mexicans, White Southerners, African-Americans, Libyans, South Americans, Yemenis, Somalis, Congolese, West Africans, Palestinians and Working Class Americans.
I probably left out other victimized people from this list. But there are historians, such as myself, who continue to document the annihilation and willful murder of everyday people, both at home in the States, and abroad, across the Earth. The historical silence is deafening and the historical white washes committed through the Amerikan Empire have been insidious.
The Truth eventually busts into the Light however. Actual History moves into this reality because it represents the Truth, while the Truth suddenly bursts forth after the ascendancy of Death.
Such will be the future case for the Amerikan Empire after its eventual destruction. Human history will associate the Amerikan Empire as the most evil, murderous and sociopathic of world empires. Stupid American TV shows and the crass productions of Hollywood will represent some of the propaganda icing over the fetid excrement of empire. All the while, the media manipulations carefully conceal the horrid oppression and legal crimes.
