I noted in today’s Press TV piece that everybody seems to be talking about false-flags:
False-flag meme goes viral on 9/11 anniversary
The real breakthrough: Col. Wilkerson’s exposure of the Syria chemical weapons fiasco as an Israeli false flag.
Meanwhile, Rand Paul is stealing my stuff, asking why the US should become al-Qaeda’s air force on the anniversary of 9/11.
Today, on the 12th anniversary of 9/11, I seem to be the only one who isn’t talking about false flags. That’s because I have been asked to give a five minute speech at the Million American March Against Fear, which is happening today from noon to 2 pm on the National Mall between 12th and 14th Streets in Washington, DC. I am supposed to focus on the mission of the March – and the mission of its sponsor, the American Muslim Political Action Committee.
So I will try to prove that I can talk for five minutes without mentioning false flags.
Here is (more or less) what I will say:
Today we are here to memorialize all the victims of 9/11 – including those who have been killed, robbed, and deprived of liberty in the wake of that terrible day.
And we are here to gently point out that most of that killing, robbing, and depriving of liberty has targeted Muslims.
So we are following in the footsteps of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., who demanded equal rights for his people – but did not stop there.
Martin Luther King’s March on Washington in 1963 challenged white America to move beyond its scapegoating and demonization of African-Americans.
Today, after 12 years of scapegoating and demonizing Muslims, we are here, “United in Courage” to demand that the civil rights of ALL Americans, and the human rights of all people, be respected.
Dr. King began by demanding equal rights for his people.
Today we are demanding equal rights for our people.
But Dr. King moved beyond the limits of that agenda. He leveraged his call for equal rights into a movement for peace and social change. He inspired people to rise up and make sure that the USA moved beyond its limitations, and lived up to its highest ideals.
Our mission today is not just equal rights for Muslims. Our mission is to bring all Americans together to regain the Constitutional liberties that were eroding before 9/11, and have been imploding since 9/11. And our mission is to help America realize its potential for peace, liberty and prosperity that was never perfectly implemented before 9/11, but which seems to be slipping away completely post-9/11.
So we are here to help save the American dream not just for Muslims, but for all Americans.
It is time to reject the politics of fear, and put the era of the 9/11 witch-hunts and mass killings behind us.
If Americans rise up and reject the fear-mongering and the hate-mongering and the ignorance that some of our leaders have inflicted on us, we can not only save the American dream, but we can start making it a reality.
