If you wondered how you would react during a slave rebellion or anti-colonial struggle, well, this is how you’d react. It’s happening right now, in front of you in this cursed panopticon. Israel is a literal settler colony and they’re slaughtering the natives that dared rebel against them. And the other colonizers are piling into help. This is why colonial history is important. Because it’s not history. It’s happening right now.
Nat Turner’s slave rebellion in 1831 was covered the same as the Palestinian rebellion today, as you can see in the woodcut above. The enslaved were portrayed as brutally murdering women and children, and then mercilessly pursued by Dragoons with modern weapons. What’s happening to Palestine now? It’s literally the same script, 200 years later. They even use the same lies to justify themselves.
In a 1641 Irish rebellion, newspapers and politicians fabricated accounts of the rebels killing babies and disemboweling pregnant women, just as the Palestinian rebellions is being slandered today. Just see the headlines in almost every UK paper, based on nothing. A lie gets half-way around the world before the truth gets its pants on.
Even the IDF and White House deny any evidence of this baby killing, but it is being used to collectively punish the population of Gaza, which contains over a million children.
As you can see, it’s literally the same story used to justify colonial violence since colonialism. Save our children, by killing theirs! Based on what can only be blood libel. The image above is just comically propagandist. The enemy is killing babies, while our guys are saving puppies. None of this is true, of course, and even the ‘journalists’ know it. Here’s the international correspondent of The Independent explaining why she deleted a tweet about it:
I just wanted to clarify that I did not tweet 40 babies had been beheaded. I tweeted that foreign media had been told women and children had been decapitated but we had not been shown bodies — which was my response to reports which had gone viral about the 40 babies. I realised the way my tweet was written was too short to explain the full context, so deleted it. My headline of my story references that toddlers were killed.
She deleted the tweet but saw fit to run it the story on the front page, where even more damage was done! These people know what they’re doing, it’s the same old playbook from every rebellion the colonizers have brutally suppressed, and of course they face no consequences. These are the same people who incited their population into supporting so many wars, and they only fail upwards. Only the anti-war journalists get fired, in countries that are now trying to ban protest or even flying Palestinian flags. It’s the same colonial shit, different colonial day. Make the colonized look like merciless savages, then mercilessly savage them. This is how they break the back of anti-colonial rebellions to this day.
Even the words coming out the mouths of politicians are the same. Here’s a 1641 statement from the British Parliament, about the Irish rebellion:
All I can tell you is the miserable state we continue under, for the rebels daily increase in man and munitions in all parts, except the province of Munster, exercising all manner of cruelties, and striving who can be most barbarously exquisite in tormenting the poor Protestants, cutting off their ears, fingers, and hands, plucking out their eyes, boiling the hands of little children before their mothers’ faces, stripping women naked and ripping them up.
And here’s Joe Biden, the doddering heir to White Empire, now centered in Washington DC instead of London:
You know, there are moments in this life — and I mean this literally — when the pure, unadulterated evil is unleashed on this world. The people of Israel lived through one such moment this weekend. The bloody hands of the terrorist organization Hamas — a group whose stated purpose for being is to kill Jews.
This was an act of sheer evil.
More than 1,000 civilians slaughtered — not just killed, slaughtered — in Israel. Among them, at least 14 American citizens killed. Parents butchered using their bodies to try to protect their children. Stomach-turning reports of being — babies being killed. Entire families slain. Young people massacred while attending a musical festival to celebrate peace — to celebrate peace.
Women raped, assaulted, paraded as trophies.
Families hid their fear for hours and hours, desperately trying to keep their children quiet to avoid drawing attention. And thousands of wounded, alive but carrying with them the bullet holes and the shrapnel wounds and the memory of what they endured. You all know these traumas never go away.
Many things Biden lists are completely false. No babies killed like that (even the IDF and his own White House denies evidence), the festival was not about peace, and no creditable reports of women being raped and paraded through the streets. Even his own White House had to ‘walk back’ his remarks:
A White House spokesperson later clarified that U.S. officials and the president have not seen pictures or confirmed such reports independently. The president based his comments about the alleged atrocities on the claims from Netanyahu’s spokesman and media reports from Israel, according to the White House. In response to questions from The Post, an Israel Defense Forces spokesperson declined to comment on the state of victims’ bodies.
As Sahouraxo said, “In other words, Joe Biden lied about seeing pictures of beheaded Israeli babies in order to justify Israel’s ongoing massacre of Gaza’s civilians. Just like Obama lied about Syria and Libya, and Bush lied about WMDs in Iraq.” I argue that these lies go all the way back to the start of colonialism, to the first slave rebellion, to the first native resistance. It’s the same phenomenon, only now they add the asterisk (we were lying!) a few days rather than centuries later.
Like that corrupt British journalist’s ‘walkback’, it’s too little too late, and they know exactly what they’re doing. They spread the lie widely and bury the truth in a shallow grave. Both Biden and the entire corrupt ‘liberal’ establishment are openly giving marching orders to a militarized pogrom. They are inciting violence just as their predecessors incited violence throughout colonialism.
Every atrocity Biden makes up is to justify the atrocities they’re doing and about to do more. Every atrocity he lists as ‘pure evil’, Israel has done at an industrial level, and is doing even more so. Propagandists even use images of Israeli atrocities to make their point. Here, for example, is Justin Bieber saying ‘pray for Israel’, over a picture of destroyed Gaza!
As Mohammed El-Kurd said:
“Hamas dissected a pregnant woman’s body,” but it’s actually a report of the Sabra and Shatila massacre where Israeli soldiers did that to a Palestinian woman. “Hamas keeps babies in cages,” but the images show Palestinian babies caged by the Israeli military. What a circus
I, personally, remember the photograph of a Palestinian father, desperately holding his son before they were both mowed down by Israelis. Rape of women, men, and children is endemic under Israeli apartheid, this is also well documented. Entire families are being slain as we speak in Gaza, and Biden talked about the traumas this causes. Does that trauma go away because Palestinians are, in the Israeli War Minister’s words, “human animals.” It makes sense that these people are destroying the world environmentally, they think animals deserve brutality, and apply this wicked hierarchy of feeling even within humans. I’d say the language is demented but it’s not. As Donald Glover sang, ‘this is America’.
Biden is simply repeating what Thomas Jefferson — who raped slaves and enslaved his own children — wrote in the Declaration of Independence, complaining about the British King not being genocidal enough. That founding text of America reads:
He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers,the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.
This statement is not an aberration, it is the American creed, now exported to their colony in the Middle East. Hamas did attack Israel, primarily military targets, and people were killed. In response these acts of war, Israel is seeking carte blanche for war crimes, with no concept of proportionality (because they’re animals). And they’re getting permission and arms for this, from the heart of White Empire. The provinces of the UK and Australia, so fond of lecturing, now see nothing wrong with cutting off food, water, and electricity to an entire population (which definitely kills babies, ie newborns in incubators).Meanwhile America pulls up an aircraft carrier on a concentration camp, to prevent them from getting any relief from the ocean, besides jumping into it and drowning.
We are witnessing colonialism in real time, with industrial machinery. We are witnessing the crushing of the Warsaw Ghetto all over again. We are witnessing all the stuff liberals sanctimoniously say is in the past, but it’s happening right now, right in front of us. The rebellion of Palestine is being crushed by the colonial outpost of Israel, with the full backing of the still ruling White Empire. Colonialism is not distant history. It’s happening right in front of us, right now. So if you’re wondering what you’d do and think during colonialism, during Nazism, during all of the evils you think are in the past, this is what you’d be doing. This is what you’d be thinking. So you have to ask, what side of history are you on?
