Editor Speaks with Forked Tongue
By Servando Gonzalez (2008)
of the latest pieces by Joseph Farah, Editor of WorldNetDaily,
is a hateful diatribe against Lew Rockwell, Editor of LewRockwell.com.
According to Farah, Rockwell is an anti-American of the worst
type, who tells “vitriolic lies about America.”
What are, according to Farah, Rockwell’s anti-American vitriolic
lies? Let’s see what Rockwell wrote:
"Once again, Ron is the only man in the House of Unrepresentatives
not to take the pro-war, CIA line. He refuses to do what is
constitutionally none of the U.S. government's business: intervene
in China. He is also keenly aware of the irony of a murderous
empire that has killed 1 million civilians in Iraq alone, in
order to maintain its subjugation, criticizing anyone else."
(I took the Rockwell quote directly
from Farah’s article,"Off
the deep end.")
Well, either my English is more deficient than I think or I am
missing something here. Let me read again “… a murderous
empire that has killed 1 million civilians in Iraq alone, in order
to maintain its subjugation, criticizing anyone else." Apparently
Farah’s subconscious mind is playing tricks on him, because,
as you see, there is no mention of the United States of America
in that text.
Of course, Rockwell is referring to an empire that, just by chance,
until now has been based on the USA, but soon it will be based
on the North American Union and, eventually, on the American Union
as a previous step to include the whole world in what the conspirators
who control it euphemistically call the New World Order. If Farah
does not know what the North American Union, the American Union,
or the New World Order are, I suggest him to read WorldNetDaily,
particularly the Letters to the Editor section.
Actually, the criminal empire Rockwell refers to is the one controlled
by an elite of Wall Street bankers, oil magnates, and transnational
corporations that, using Fabian (or Gramscian) techniques of infiltration
has managed to get full control over the U.S. Government and is
using it to advance their own, secret comuno-fascist totalitarian
agenda. Unfortunately, most of the world hates us, the American
citizens, for the atrocities these small elite has committed and
is currently perpetrating.
This Wall Street mafia of bankers and their secret agents infiltrated
in the U.S. Government, not Lew Rockwell, are the true haters
of America. They are the ones telling vitriolic lies about America.
They are the ones who plan to destroy America. They are America’s
In a 2003 article, “The
pending demise of WorldNetDaily?,” Tom Ambrose, commentary
editor of WND, criticizes the critics by arguing that the site
is an independent news site publishing viewpoints from all over
the political spectrum. I have no objection to this. Disagreement
is part of the democratic, civilized way of living. Contradictory
points of view among different individuals is a strong evidence
of freedom and a very healthy feature of a democratic republic.
What is not acceptable, however, is contradictory points of view
expressed by the same individual. This is precisely why
most people don’t like politicians like the three ones now
running for the presidency of this country. And most people don’t
like them because inconsistency is the mark of the opportunist
and the liar. Unfortunately, inconsistency is precisely what has
characterized Mr. Farah’s thinking of lately.
For example, like many WorldNetDaily readers familiar with Farah’s
articles, I expected he was going to support Ron Paul, because
most of Paul’s political position agreed with most of Farah’s
expressed position. But, surprisingly, Farah did an unexplainable
about face and wrote “Earmark
this, Ron Paul!,” a vitriolic, hateful article against
Ron Paul. In my eyes, with that article Farah lost all credibility.
More intriguing, he published it after the media, particularly
the Republican “conservative” media, had started a
take-no-prisoners war against Paul. After reading this article
I dropped Farah in the same trash can I put Pat Robertson after
expressing his support for Rudi Giuliani and Richard Mellon Scaife
after showing his sympathy for Hillary Clinton.
In another article, “Why
Ron Paul is disqualified,” Farah claimed that he did
not support Ron Paul because “Paul essentially calls for
running up the white flag of surrender to an enemy that seeks
America's destruction.” Apparently Farah is a believer in
conspiracy theories -- particularly the ones advanced by the Bush
administration --, because actually Paul was calling for a fight
against the worst enemies of America: the Wall Street bankers
and their secret agents of the Council on Foreign Relations. Ron
Paul intended to bring the U.S. Army back to America, where it
belongs, to help us defend ourselves from all enemies, foreign
Farah claims that Lew Rockwell hates America, which implies that
he, Farah, the super patriot, loves America. The problem with
that view is that, now more than ever, it has become evident that
there are two Americas. Like many Americans, I hate the murderous
empire that, under the control of the Wall Street bankers, is
hiding behind the façade of the United States of America.
These bankers, not Lew Rockwell or Ron Paul, are the ones conspiring
in the shadows to destroy America.
For obvious reasons, I cannot call current America under the Bush
regime, like Farah does, the greatest experiment in freedom the
world has ever known. The country that was a beacon of liberty
and freedom is rapidly becoming a totalitarian comuno-fascist
dictatorship. Having lived under a democracy, a dictatorship,
and a totalitarian dictatorship (in that order), I have a first
hand experience, and I know very well the differences. And, frankly,
this America Farah loves so much scares the hell out of me.
