America Resembles Gunfight at the OK Corral
by Stephen Lendman
Hollywood is now real life. Instead of good v. bad guys shoot ‘em ups, it’s killer cops against people of color, mostly unarmed Black youths, victims of racist injustice.
Do five Dallas police officers lethally shot days earlier, another 10 wounded and now three Baton Rouge cops killed, seven others wounded on Sunday indicate victims are beginning to retaliate – or perhaps as one of my readers suggests a “gov’t covert ops designed to foment race war.”
Most likely it reflects a combination of justifiable public anger exploding, along with state-sponsored terrorism, most recently in Orlando and Nice, false flags turning Western communities into battlegrounds – terrifying people to accept permanent wars on humanity and elimination of fundamental freedoms on the phony pretext of protecting national security.
Whatever is going on suggests much more it, followed by greater state repression than already – full blown tyranny the final outcome, packaged so people will accept what harms their welfare, fundamental freedoms and futures.
America’s deplorable state continues on a slippery slope to dystopian harshness, a police state unfit and unsafe to live it – serving its privileged class exclusively at the expense of most others, enforced by militarized killer cops targeting everyone challenging the system for justice.
