You Shall Know Them by Their “Slip Ups”
You shall know them by their fruits - their actions - is indeed a true statement. People, governments and institutions will say anything to serve their needs and spout about how they are going to do this or that while they don’t. Talk, talk, talk, yet where’s the fruit? This lack of following through is very revealing, however, as the saying, “A drunk man’s words are a sober man’s thoughts” reminds us, words as well can tell us a great deal about the person uttering them.
I’m amazed at how Americans continue to believe in their leaders when often their words reveal their complete disgust for the masses when they let their guard down and loosen their tongues. I shouldn’t be amazed. The masses have been programmed to exalt authority, and as the abysmal State of the Union shows, the sheeples are happy to be led by the wicked so as not to indulge in that pesky activity called “thinking”, with bread basket Republicans and religious folk trotting along at the head of the herd.
The ruling elite often blurt out exactly what they think of the masses when alcohol or “the moment” reveals the depravity of their motivations, and still, the masses continue to worship their immoral asses. Masses for asses. Of course, we have to consider the sheeple’s infantile need to be right: to be on the right team, the right political party, the right God, which means that even a horrifying slip up by their “leaders” usually won’t impel a sheeple to fire up any neurons and get a clue.
Let’s take a look at some verbal slip ups, starting with the current overlord in power since this is most relevant to our present predicaments:
"I want to thank you, the haves and the have mores. You are my base.” George W. Bush, at a formal fundraiser dinner. Bush is saying exactly how he feels about the rest of us who aren’t in his elitist club and who are excessively taxed - without representation I might add. This gives credence to the fact that he does everything to enrich the haves at the expense of the have nots, which has truly been the case. Quite enlightening, Mr. President. If I didn’t feel like a scum bucket peon of the system before, I sure do now.
"See, in my line of work you got to keep repeating things over and over and over again for the truth to sink in, to kind of catapult the propaganda." - George W. Bush, 2005. Whoops! He really let his guard down on this one. Here we have the leader of the supposed free world admitting his scripted dither is propaganda.
"If this were a dictatorship, it would be a heck of a lot easier, just so long as I'm the dictator,” - George W. Bush, 2000. The revealing words of a psychopath, and ones he has studiously endeavored to make come true. Bush has done everything in his power to get more power and to answer to no one as America now teeters on the edge of a full blown dictatorship.
"You work three jobs? … Uniquely American, isn't it? I mean, that is fantastic that you're doing that." - Bush, to a divorced mother of three in Nebraska last year. Here, Bush highlights how out of touch he is with the desperate population of a country he bankrupted while also providing tax cuts to the people who need it most: the rich. More telling is his feigned empathy, which is classic sociopath behavior.
Bush’s mother, Babs, follows suit with this appalling and very illuminating, “Oops. I revealed my true elitist self”, slip up:
"What I'm hearing which is sort of scary is that they all want to stay in Texas. Everybody is so overwhelmed by the hospitality. And so many of the people in the arena here, you know, were underprivileged anyway so this (chuckle) – this is working very well for them." – Barbara Bush, on the hurricane evacuees at the Astrodome in Houston.
“Dictatorships start wars because they need external enemies to exert internal control over their own people.” - Richard Perle. Here Perle very adequately highlights the motive for Iraq, The Patriot Act and other appalling police state controls unleashed upon the American public.
And finally, a few slip ups that speak for themselves:
“In politics, every day is filled with numerous opportunities for serious error. Enjoy it.” - Donald Rumsfeld
“It's not a matter of what is true that counts but a matter of what is perceived to be true.” - Henry Kissinger
“Military men are just dumb stupid animals to be used as pawns in foreign policy.” - Henry Kissinger.
Perhaps you might share these quotes - straight from the wolf’s mouth - with any sheeples you know. If they still don’t wake up to the fact that America is a plutocracy masquerading as a democracy infested with psychopaths, then there is absolutely no hope they will ever rise above their brainwashing, manipulated egos or their unfortunate stupidity.
