Genocide and Slavery Were Good

So says Paul Harvey.

"We didn't come this far because we're made of sugar candy. Once upon a time, we elbowed our way onto and across this continent by giving smallpox-infected blankets to Native Americans. That was biological warfare. And we used every other weapon we could get our hands on to grab this land from whomever.

And we grew prosperous. And yes, we greased the skids with the sweat of slaves. So it goes with most great nation-states, which--feeling guilty about their savage pasts--eventually civilize themselves out of business and wind up invaded and ultimately dominated by the lean, hungry up-and-coming who are not made of sugar candy."

Paul Harvey tells an ugly truth. This nation was built on crimes against humanity. He tells another ugly truth. The cry for war is the cry for domination, white supremacy and death. Other war mongers are less honest, but they feel the same way.

On the other hand all empires, that is what he is referring to, die. It doesn't happen over night, but the signs of the death throes are evident. Bush will hasten the end for this empire.

In the meantime, ABC/Disney needs to know that Harvey's comments are unconscionable. I also suggest asking for equal time for other points of view. Too bad the fairness doctrine went out the window.
