The Worst Thing on Earth
When you look at the history of the State of Missouri, it's completely obvious what happened between Wilson and Brown. Missouri was the "swing state" of the Civil War, harboring some of the most bitter infighting between Confederate and Union sympathizers. Before the war began, Missourians were split over the issue of slavery. Same old story: farmer-types, people who wanted to use the imported poor for inslavery semi-skilled labor for farming cash crops, versus factory types, people who wanted to use the imported poor for outslavery semi-skilled labor to run their factories. Slaveholders, being old-fashioned, were willing to invest capital value in their assets, while factory men were crafty enough to foresee the future of externalized slavery, reducing repression costs by condensing slave populations into urban ghettos, thereby increasing overall profit while cutting their caloric capital losses when poor children starved.
The Worst Thing on Earth
In 1828 was born the worst monster ever to be created on Earth: the American Democratic Party. It was an expansionist, imperial party, feigning opposition against the Bank of the United States to consolidate popular support behind tribal genocide. Very quickly, the Democrats' modus operandi revealed itself: fight a showy losing battle against a preferred cause, while using that same battle to conceal terrific atrocities committed gleefully. Across the face of three centuries, now, the Democratic Party has acted in the same way, successfully employing this technique to become the greatest butcher the world has yet known.
In the persona of Andrew Jackson--just the first of the Democratic Party's Mammonist puppets--this took the form of fighting against the Bank of the U.S., drawing popular attention to a good (though purposefully doomed) cause, while increasing the intensity of the Indian Wars. The Jackson Administration was able to make genuinely good arguments, such as the protection of common Americans (white, small-landholding) against the destructive power of finance capital, and thereby appear to be helping Americans, by slowly giving way to the Bank...all while it massacred the aboriginal tribes at a then-unprecedented pace.
Pause for a moment of reflection on the Indian Wars, then and to follow. These were the times when the military president Jackson brought in more artillery; when the Democratic Party began aggressively expanding its power base, at a pace that put the Puritans to shame. Heavy guns moved into the fields in increasing numbers, not only laying the stage for the Civil War, but blasting apart tribe after tribe with scatters of grapeshot. Not even for resistance, this, but for simply not exiting annexed territory quickly enough. This was the era of shooting papooses, bayoneting open pregnant women's bellies, and throwing fetuses under horses' hooves. The Democratic Party took all the nastiest elements of British colonialism and modernized them, sweeping away great swathes of land to open to southern slave plantations, northern trading centers, and railroads.
The Bank of the U.S. was meant to succeed, as of course it did, although Andrew Jackson may have actually loathed the "Bank" idea. Meaningfully, Jackson himself personified what was to become the 20th and then 21st-century Democratic voter: such an impassioned, idealistic believer in one of the Party's token "causes" that he could commit any act under the sun in service to that cause.
Jackson brought in his successor, Van Buren, who was boring but connected to Andrew Jackson, driving America through a banking "panic" (e.g., a cyclical recession caused by finance capital) while continuing to steal as many tribal lands and order as many babies shot and slaves whipped as he could. While in office, Van Buren--who was boring, as has been mentioned--helped out with a lot of the backroom politicking that solidified the Democratic Party's organizational structure in Washington. No one liked Van Buren, but again, he was Jackson's VP, so he got in that way.
During Van Buren's term, the Democratic Party realized what it needed to do to maintain its hold on power: create a false opposition power, crafted in the image of its true desires, to both shock and horrify simpleton voters into Democratic arms, and to make Democrats look appealing to intellectual voters by verifiable contrast. Whereas Andrew Jackson probably believed he was part of a "new" party, the Democratic Party turned out to be only a sustainable model of the large landholders' party: a model that, unlike the "Democratic-Republican Party" of yesteryear, would be able to cut down on infighting by externalizing its negative counterpart. In short, the image of an "inter-party" debate was determined to be more cheaply accomplished than the previous image of "intra-party" debate.
(If you're not much up on that kind of history, debate within parties used to be a much larger component of American politics. Creating the Democratic Party and its various offshoot "antagonists" cut this way down, to the point where we are now: even the in-party fights are shows, as the DLC manages (1) who will get nominations and dollars during winning years, (2) who will get bought out with consolation government posts after winning elections, and (3) who will get honored with the nomination in losing years. E.g., Walter Mondale, Al Gore, John Kerry, Michael Dukakis...Bob Dole, John McCain...throwaway candidates being honored for their Party service by being permitted to run with "the full support of their party," despite the obvious forecastive impossibility of their success.)
After Van Buren, it had been two Democrats in a row, so time to put the Democratic strategy into effect: pass the ball to the counterpart to take some kind of fall. Unfortunately, William Henry Harrison was the one who died after 32 days, and like CIA Bush to Reagan, the Democrats had a man on the inside: John Tyler, the VP who took over once the old, retired, pneumonia-infected Harrison died (no doubt causing much surprise and consternation within Democratic Party halls, gasp!). Harrison and Tyler had been Whigs in name, but Tyler showed his true colors swiftly, making an agreement with British banks as to how to divide up American tribal resources for the U.K. and the U.S. (Webster-Ashburton), how to divide up Chinese resources for the U.K. and the U.S., (Treaty of Wanghia), and how the Qing crime syndicate, the British royals, and the American military would control the international opium trade (Wanghia also). The brutalizing that the Treaty of Wanghia caused worldwide, and of course in China in particular, would prove staggering, eventually forcing the barons of the Qing crime syndicate to transfer their stolen assets to Taiwan under British and American protection, and many Qing heirs to eventually relocate themselves and their assets to America and western Europe, while always trying to regain their former power over China's people.
To accomplish his staggering imperial overreach, which echoed the Monroe Doctrine but globally rather than regionally, John Tyler had to act like an emperor, rather than a president. He issued executive orders, ignored Congress and the judiciary, and was rather the original FDR. Need dead Indians? Sign here. Need dead Chinese? Sign here. For his insanity, Tyler was expelled from the Whig Party, and came out of the closet as a Democrat, where he was happily received.
Tyler didn't just try to kill Chinese and American Indians in what is now the United States of America, though. He was a big supporter of killing Mexicans and Central American tribal peoples, as well, and spent the last two years of his presidency obsessing over invading Texas (which can be nicely put as "annexing" Texas). After the Civil War, the good Democrat sided, of course, with the Confederacy, and serve in legislative office there; to gloss over this fact, Tyler is usually treated as "an un-influential president," even though his work on China would set the stage for many of the Democratic Party's most profitable twentieth century wars. Whereas Whigs and other parties had been less cooperative with London banking interests, the Democratic Party had shown itself to be a perfect extension of the British Empire, perceiving its gradual heirship from London, France, Rome, and Athens. New York City was to be the new empire city; the new face on the world's financial comptrollers, paying homage to western civilization in the proper way. And the Democratic Party was destined to lead that rise and eventual fall. Tyler's cooperative stance reassured the imperial bankers that America was on-board. No more Whigs; no more notions of independence or self-determination; hello, globalism. In this, he was perhaps more influential than his successor, Bloody Polk.
The First Big One
Tyler's failure to crush the independent tribal peoples and settlers of Texas, and to stop those peoples from seeking protection from the Mexican Government, turned out much like Obama's recent failure to murder a bunch of people in Syria. The Democratic Party had, for the first time, overreached itself, trying to gobble up too many parts of the planet at once; killing too many hundreds of thousands more than the country yet had the spine for. Many dozens more American tribes needed to be slaughtered to complete the expansion across the continent and fulfill Manifest Destiny, and worse, the Democrats' counterparts in Spain, then France, were exerting indirect financial control over Mexico, threatening to make it into an annoying regional power, a la Canada. The midwestern tribes needed to be murdered and dispersed to make way for railroads, but railroads were closely linked to the Democrats' favored London-centered banking interests.
After all that Andrew Jackson had done to make people think that the Democrats were the one party on the side of regular American people, by opposing the Bank of the United States, the Party was now stuck between a rock and a hard place: it needed those financiers to get their free land, loans, jails, and nationwide network of banks and express delivery companies (credit transfers at long distance before computers and phones required deliverymen carrying notes in person on railroads), and yet, it couldn't be seen to cause such things to happen. What the Democratic Party needed now was its first-ever fall guy. Its patsie; its stooge; its Dubya.
But the stooge model wasn't yet complete. Eager to complete its work of stealing Texas, the Democratic Party had James Polk elected. Polk was a horror of horrors. Though later Democrats would do it again in still more horrible ways, Polk pulled the mask completely off the Democratic Party's skull head, going around treaties and Chinese-slaughtering far away, and taking America directly into war against Mexico. He wanted to create living space for pure American people, so he killed those who were already living there, and claimed he was seizing a barren wasteland for the needful people of his fatherland--a familiar British, then Democratic, refrain. Like Saddam Hussein, Polk killed "his own people," butchering American-born Texas settlers who didn't want to be part of "the Union," and indicating that the Democratic Party was unilaterally about murder and theft.
The First Patsy
After Polk, the first sucker to take on the job of "the more evil option" was Zachary Taylor, a general who'd obediently killed people for the Democratic Party's invasion of Mexico. For his service, he was rewarded with the second-ever Whig presidency after the Democrats had consolidated their power; just like William Henry Harrison, Taylor died after only about a year. There was nothing mysterious about his death, of course; it was just one of those things that happened. As a result of Taylor's death, Millard Fillmore took over--a Know Nothing Party member (not a full Whig like Taylor), who started laying Civil War groundwork. Being a vulgar, openly-racist Know Nothing, Fillmore made his successor, Franklin Pierce, look reasonable by comparison, even though Pierce was a frothing maniac. Pierce is usually considered "minor," in the traditional way that American history tries to make its major players of minor importance; Pierce was a Democrat (of course), who reviled the abolitionist movement and continued empowering the American slave states to play them off against the north. Perhaps even more importantly, he used the Kansas-Nebraska Act to expand banks and railroads farther across the midwest, giving away more large chunks of American (read: tribally bloodstained) land to the New York and London banking consortiums that wanted to, and would soon come to, own the continent. Just like in Iraq, a bunch of poor white naive idiots died fighting swarthy people, so that distant families could grow safely rich.
Pierce stoked things up nice and good, too, for his successor Buchanan, by brutally enforcing the Fugitive Slave Act, and empowering the dying southern economy so that it would be strong enough for the Civil War. The Democratic Party is often seen as the "stupid southern party," but if so, why was it occupying the White House almost wholly in the years leading up to the Civil War? Why and how would so many powerful presidents of "the Union" be responsible for the long trend of predictable "mistakes" leading up to the Civil War? And why would so many American historians call so many clearly deliberate acts "mistakes"?
(For foreshadowing purposes, in case you didn't know, James Buchanan, Pierce's successor and the sitting President of the southern secession, was also a Democrat.) (If you're at all into freemasonry, or any of those wacky baseless theories that certain groups infiltrate places to start wars on behalf of certain financial interests that like money and depopulation, Buchanan was quite the active mason.)
Life After Death
So there are the Democrats again, whipping darkies to death and raping preteen housemaids and selling the continent to London, when they take a brief break from shooting Indians in order to build the modern police state. While the "Whig" party lost power, and therefore plausible deniability as to its ability to be a "counterpart" to the Democrats, the Democratic Party metastasized two new tumors to fake its own death and resurrection, in homage to the Party's Machiavellian methods: Unionist Democrats, who were meant to form the faction controlling northern states, and Separatist Democrats, who were meant to form the faction controlling southern states.
The sham contest between the two "factions" of the Democratic Party occurred in all of America's stolen tribal graveyards ("states"), where elite party managers formed paramilitary squads to execute people based on race, religion, and perceived political alignment. For voters in 2014, familiar with the "inept, bleeding heart donkey" image of the Democratic Party, this sounds unbelievable, but it's all too true--birthed in the blood of dead Indians and bullwhipped darkies, the Democratic Party soon turned itself into the pre-Civil War slaughter factory that led straight to Antietam. What distinguishes Democratic paramilitary murders from "conspiracy theory"-type accusations is that the Democratic murders of this period were formal, open, and acknowledged. Local party officials, from mayors to town councilmen, openly called for violence against political opponents.
In keeping with the theme of the Democratic Party, we'll unpleasantly employ the nicest versions of the Party's preferred terms when discussing the period.
Nigger killing. Democratic Party separatist factions swept the south clean of "uppity negroes." Yes, this is that period: lynchings, beatings, dragging bodies through the streets, raping women, tossing crippled babies into rivers...the Democrats shored up their control of the American deep south by murdering African Americans who had too visible a public presence. Slaveowners had to be careful about letting their human assets go into unfamiliar areas, lest they be claimed by the Democratic "bushwhacker" paramilitary gangs that roved through the south, murdering blacks to instill a climate of fear that was supposed to prevent slave organizing, rebellions, or cooperation with abolitionist organizations in the north.
These kill squads preceded the Klan and the modern American police department, laying the groundwork for both. Protected by Democratic mayors and sheriffs, white men would just rove around the rural and urban south, cleaning the streets of blacks. This is Darren Wilson; this is George Zimmerman: the recurring Americanism of white people who hunt through the night for vulnerable blacks, confront them, and kill them, all the while genuinely believing that they are the "protectors" of their society. Elites only rarely sacrifice them; for hundreds of years, the aim of American financiers has been to shield their professional killers from punishment, in order to signal to others that the assassin's creed protects its own.
(If you follow Jesse James, who is mentioned later, you'll notice how even the "Unionist" government didn't give a good god damn about his murders--it was a private bastard with his own blood feud, Pinkerton, and some more-independent local sheriffs, who actually tried to catch him.)
Kike killing. Like Germany before the Holocaust, the Deep South well before the Civil War was largely abandoned by lighter-skinned, wealthier, non-observant ethnic Jews, who moved to the north ahead of the conflict to join the unionist Democratic factions. Darker, poorer, observant ethnic Jews often fled northern urban discrimination and settled in the south, where they were strong forces for abolition. This wasn't the phony, mealy-mouthed abolition that "northerners" frequently blabbered about in the decades before the Civil War, but real, on-the-ground abolition, where southern Jews would educate, feed, and speak out at personal risk for African Americans. These Jews were not sheltered in Manhattan offices, but living as small-town teachers, lawyers, and doctors, in the south, letting their kids play with black kids, associating with freed slaves, and generally wearing bullseyes.
The Democratic paramilitary gangs hit them hard, as the Ku Klux Klan, then later paramilitaries, were to do (if you can stomach Grisham, see The Chamber for a 1967 take). In terms of Jewish history and ethnography, many of these Jews didn't end up making it--the Confederacy, the Klan, and the Democratic Party managed to extinguish most of those voices, often literally, such that later American Jewry lost much of its practicing, orthodox component.
If you're into Jewish history, this is a very interesting period--the time when "Jewish," in America, ceased to have much to do with the Torah, Hebrew, or a personal relationship with God. America's deep south was used to kill off darker-skinned Jews, the survivors becoming further marginalized as old-fashioned and kooky (besides being more Middle Eastern in appearance), while their history was largely replaced and subsumed by a class of white atheists who used the term to indicate their comparatively newfound cultural identity. "Yahweh" became a metaphor for "our belief in each other," "kosher" became a mere health issue or cultural identifier, and Jews who were still actually Jewish became second-class laughingstocks.
Even today, in the most expressly racist, "pro-Jewish" society in the world, Jews will ban Israelis from the lunch counter if they think the person's genetics are "too Middle Eastern" or "too Arabic." Read the foregoing link--it describes an Israeli Druze IDF soldier, who had just finished loyally killing Palestinians in Operation Protective Edge, being barred from a pub because they didn't think he looked enough like the right kind of Caucasian Jew. Jews who question the ethnic supremacy of the light-skinned union-Democrat Jews are labeled as "self hating Jews," in much the same way that earlier generations of Caucasian Jews shifted the original, African-blooded, Jews away from being able to publicly claim the appellation "Jewish."
The Civil War
Eventually, the financing poured into the American paramilitary wasteland, and--a la Napoleon v. Britain--a profitably depopulating war was held. Europe's continental financiers strung along the comparatively pastoral Confederacy, making them think they might achieve backing against the industrialized pro-Londoners of the north, while President Buchanan--the penultimate Democrat--conducted endlessly incendiary sham-negotiations between the American north and the south, guaranteeing a terrible war as deftly as a modern-day Kerry ensuring an Israeli invasion of Lebanon. Oh, what a "failure" for the "ineffective, hamstrung President," right? Yeah, just like how Cheney "failed" to predict the consequences for Iraq of removing Saddam Hussein in power. It's so terrible when unimportant humans die while your factory receives record numbers of gun orders and seizes vast tracts of land and natural resources, isn't it?
This was the cauldron in which the Jesse James legend was born--a separatist Democrat, James was just a murdering racist from a slaveholding family, who wished Missouri had joined the Confederacy. He never went to war, but he did work with a separatist Democratic newspaper to murder unionist families and random blacks during the war (see The Last Rebel of the Civil War for mounds upon mounds of good cites).
Boom boom, shoot shoot, die die. The Civil War looked so bad to so many, and the "separatist Democratic Party" so reviled worldwide, that the Democrats realized they couldn't hang onto the term "Democrat" for the whole system. They needed to find a new collective patsy to serve as counterpart, and they found it by having their unionist section form the "Republican Party." Now, instead of one Democratic Party, there were two! The Unionist Democratic Party, a.k.a. the Republican Party, and the Separatist Democratic Party, a.k.a. the Democratic Party. In the words of Darth Vader, the circle was now complete: the repugnant, incestuous marriage of cash and murder that would last for the next few centuries. The wedding between the "Democratic" and "Republican" parties of Mammon--the polygamously legitimized timeless rape-fest of the world's greatest usurers and eugenicists--was a dramatic one, but Lincoln played his part well, ensuring that the conflict could continue to pay dividends in shredded flesh for the next two hundred years.
One would think that, after defeating a "Democratic Party" (theoretically) devoted to the destruction of a nation, the said party would be disbanded. Similarly, one would think that, by invading a country dominated by murderous Islamist tribal warlords, the Islamist tribal warlords would stop being empowered. Ever hear of Afghanistan? Wrong. Fucking. Answer. The Democratic Party, like the Northern Alliance, remained in play, given license to dominate the south for nearly another ninety years. The Democratic Party's offshoot Republicans took credit for saving the Union, and used the credit to shield the other half of the propertied party from the destruction it surely deserved. Under the Republican mantle, Democratic leaders in the South laid down the Jim Crow laws and organized additional paramilitary kill teams, including former Confederate bushwhackers and the Ku Klux Klan, while still using federal funds to break up the old plantations into harvestable land that could be turned into cash funneled through New York and London.
Make no mistake, slavery was terrible, and the southerners were complete immoral idiots, their culture a wretched Democratic Party mess (albeit a different kind of Democratic Party mess than the plagued urban hells of Manhattan and its satellites). But the Reconstructed police-state nightmare that succeeded it was worse: a subtle, insidious beast that turned "owner" into "employer," and removed the financial incentive for rich scum to prevent poor blacks from dying too early. Freeing blacks without also granting them votes and equal protection under the law made them a Dilbert-like commodity, though one that couldn't at least use the capital loss caused by its own death to require a modicum of investment from an owner. Accordingly, "free employment," coupled with increasingly clever restrictions on life, improved the lot of major investors, who could now externalize the costs of sharecropping onto the sharecroppers themselves.
Ku Klux Kountry
Everyone thinks the Ku Klux Klan was one of the Democratic Party's greatest 19th century misdeeds, but the drama of the Klan tends to obscure the far greater numbers of Democratic killings conducted by un-costumed murderers with formal governmental sanction. The "bushwhacking" that had begun even before the Civil War continued in intensity, now that murdering a random black person was 100% guaranteed to not cause a capital loss to the owner. Now, every black person was a target, every Jewish person still alive a guaranteed collaborator, and anyone who didn't join you a potential Republican. As Johnson spoke about gooks; as Truman spoke about Japs and Chinks; as Obama spoke about Muslims; as Wilson spoke about Krauts: this is the phony Ku Klux Party, which cares far more about murder itself than it does about any actual racist agenda. Woe unto you, deceived racists of the past, who were so ably used. In one perspective, the Klan is just another one of the Democratic Party's many abused girlfriends, used for a while, then tossed aside when a new discrimination opportunity comes along. (Look sharp--here come the 1990s student diversity organizers! Oops, now it's a few years later--let's us Democrats all laugh about what a cunt Sarah Palin is, ha ha!)
(Since everyone loves the make-believe legend of Jesse James so much, I'll mention how) [T]he Jesse James work linked above provides a nice picture of Jesse James' part in this process, and again, it behooves us mention that this was open policy. In southern and western states, Democratic Party official policy was to drive off (by killing, or stealing, or burning out) white settlers, as well as any and all blacks. Democratic Party meetings would involve discussion between local Democrats about which "carpetbaggers" or "darkies" to murder in order to send a message that the Civil War wasn't forgotten, and Democratic voters exulted when they read about the killings. Many of them even took the killers into their homes, and made heroes of them, sheltering them from the occasional federal investigation--or more often, a staged local investigation, much like a Missouri grand jury, where taxpayers would gleefully throw money at whoever had killed a nigger, help the person hide out until the heat was off, and then go on with their normal murdering lives. Jesse James was just one of hundreds of ex-Confederate bushwhacker kill teams that survived for years in the south and the west, by being given food, horses, ammo, money, and days or months of shelter in the homes of communities who were happy someone was "taking care of them." The newspapers were filled with anti-black, anti-Indian, anti-Jewish, anti-Chinese, anti-almost-everything propaganda, proudly devoured by the burgeoning Democrats. (The "me so solly" Chinaman with the buck teeth makes an appearance in the literature of the time, joining, of course, the deliberately chimpanzee-drawn African American.)
Again, there is nothing remotely new about Darren Wilson, nor the vile community support for people who are proud to protect one of their own from international backlash when yet another black kid gets killed by some 70-IQ scumbag who trolls the darkness with his friends looking for uppity negroes to discipline. This has been a feature of American life for over a hundred years. Even after the Civil War, white households were proudly sheltering bushwhackers for murdering entire families of poor black sharecroppers.
We remember that these shootings, lynchings, and rapes were open policies to remind us why the Democratic Party is so evil as an ongoing entity. It wasn't that "the Democratic Party appealed to people who were racists," or "some/many members of the Democratic Party said bad things," but rather, that the party's formal plank, year after year, was these things. This was an intrinsic, fundamental crime of the Democratic Party. Like slavery, the Indian Wars, the invasion of Mexico, and the many to follow, the Democratic Party was founded on principles of, and has always been to this very day, an entity of consistent, vocal support for genocide, slavery, and paramilitary murder without trial. It is the worst and most dangerous entity on planet Earth; the foulest den of arch-lunatics and malignant bankers; the country club of child sacrifice and cash-bloated killers. Thoreau may have called it a disgrace to be associated with the American government, but it is far more vulgar an act to have even a brief association with that country's Democratic Party. The reason the Democratic Party so easily split apart into the Republican Party, then so deftly swapped a few members and viewpoints 90 years later for the Civil Rights Show, is because they're the same party, the same people, running perpetual cover for the same agendas.
No, "not all southerners were like that," and lots of white southerners were killed in the ethnic cleansing post-Civil-War--just as many black southerners were willing to turn on other slaves or freed blacks in order to gain blood money and personal power. Like the Seattle protests against the World Trade Organization, the Democratic Party loves attacking whites nearly as much as blacks, particularly when whites do abolitionist things like resist the free trade of commodified human beings.
Jesse James specifically carried out numerous targeted assassinations in this way: he would ride with a gang to the house of a white person who was known to sympathize with "the Union," ask them to come outside under some pretext (like, "look at my sick horse" or "whose farm is that over there?"), shoot them in the head, rob them, and then ride off. See a black guy or a suspected Union sympathizer on the road with a nice horse? Murder him and take the horse. Near the end of his life, James started robbing trains, which gave him a stupidly romanticized place in history; as for the other thousands of Democratic guerrillas, they're not remembered, and modern Americans drastically underestimate all their victims, which are blamed in popular memory on "the Klan."
Centuries from now, American (and British, and Anglo-American-influenced) police departments will be seen that same way. Modern America will be looked at like one gigantic Nazi Confederacy, so obviously, Godwinishly bad that it's not even a joke anymore, with a death toll of tens of millions of blacks dead peacefully in rape-prison and thousands of blacks being shot dead in the streets every year. This is its own Klan, the endless Klan, the worst thing on Earth. Your great-great-whatever grandkids could be watching a history video, wondering, "Grandma, did your grandma's grandma just sit there while the police were killing all those people?" Yes. This is all the Deep South. History will offer no quarter to massa's claims that, "They treat each other badly, too, therefore our murders are less hideous," because removed from the ridiculous context of modern police apologetica, that argument will stand out as the eugenicism that it is.
The trend of local authorities murdering black people for existing isn't only matched by modern American police departments, but by modern American popular opinion. When ex-Confederate bushwhackers murdered a black preteen they found playing in a field somewhere, no one arrested them, and the papers were full of proud letters to the editor hooting on the killings. So too with today's exterminators, who have slaveholder armies standing by to put down popular unrest after any given murder.
(But no, Obama does not intend to use his unilateral executive powers to send a drone after anyone who has just killed an American child. He prefers to drone children himself, so he understands his Klan all too well. Suggestion to al Qaeda: wear police uniforms, and Obama will let you kill as many Americans as you like. He'll also give you paid retirement and warn people not to be upset or use the collapsed towers as an excuse for violence.)
The paramilitary murdering process became formalized, eventually, in the addition of "police departments" to the former sheriff's office. Sheriffs still exist, enforcing bank foreclosures and repossessions where necessary, but the cornucopia of victimless crimes we have now is the direct descendant of the anti-terrorism monitoring birthed with southern Reconstruction. Like the cocaine wars of the 1980s black ghettos, or the Pinkerton agitations and battles of the early 20th century, the Civil War showed itself to be another Democratic Party modus operandi: sending instigators into a target population, inciting crimes, taking a partial fall, then using the turmoil as justification to intervene. That's the way the U.S. destroyed so many countries during the Cold War, once the Democrats honed their powers for full use on the world stage. The outright invasion of Mexico, and the slaughter of the aboriginal American tribes, would not do for a sustained image in the coming globalism--the Civil War was the practice pretext, preparing America to enter the imperial world by murdering Filipinos. Ever onward and upward.
It's kind of sadly cute how many racists now understand that the War of Northern Aggression was a clear police state action, but think that every time the U.K. or the U.S. invades Iraq, it's some kind of selfless, necessary act. Conversely, it's cutely sad how so many leftists now can heavily analyze the fraud involved in (at least some of the recent times we've been involved in) invading Iraq, yet how they look back on the Civil War as some kind of example of a heroic north saving blacks from slavery.
Jim Crow laws, and Reconstruction, were the model for the police state the Democratic Party wanted to impose on the entire country. At first, it began as an experiment against blacks, as prisons are now used to prep the population at large for a school-to-prison style life. Over time, with quiet insistence, Jim Crow laws, a constant professional standing army, and vast layers of an endless, expensive surveillance state, slipped into place upon everyone. The Jim Crow-styled regulations upon employment, personal behavior, communication, and group association have been an integral part of American legality for decades, though because they are now evenly applied, the American thinks there has been progress. The everyday monitoring of Reconstruction, and the climate of constant fear of paramilitary killings, made the post-Civil-War American south the ideal vision of the Demopublican Party's future. Endless years of an endless army of Darren Wilsons roving through the streets, backed by a creature that came to life in 1828, the oldest and most powerful political party on the face of the Earth...
