Doctress Neutopia: Flag Blinded Right-Winger Offers Pie-in-the-Sky Patriotism

I’m surprised that Republican candidate, Sean CF Murphy, would admire the former, notorious AZ governor, One-Eyed Jack Williams. He was the racist governor who fought against Arizona native, Cesar Chavez and the right of farm workers to organize in the state of Arizona. His unjust actions led to a 24-day protest fast that involved 5,000 people. The fast was dedicated to the late Bobby Kennedy, whose son, Robert, came 3,000 miles for the privilege of taking part.

The protest against Governor Williams echoed across the nation and around the world. Cesar Chavez went on to international fame, was honored with his image on a US postage stamp, and he has been recently acclaimed by Arizona Republican Senator John McCain. The one-eye jackass governor who fought viciously to deny rights to hard working people is now but an ugly little footnote whose present day admirers can be counted on one finger.

As for candidate Murphy or any other pie-eyed jingoist who thinks he has some exclusive rights to interpret the symbolism of the “stars and stripes,” well guess again. That star-splattered banner is just an unimaginative rip-off of the flag of the East India Company, the world’s first pillaging, multi-national corporation, and originator of the opium trade.

The East India flag which preceded the American knock-off by a hundred years, consisted of thirteen red and white stripes and a little white cross stuck on a rectangular field of blue in the upper left hand corner. What a coincidence. And, despite all the sappy artworks by 19th century painters, no Revolutionary War battles were ever fought under the flag, and no founding fathers ever flew it. They didn’t even know what it looked like.

These are just some more reasons why the gaping hole in “Old Gory” doesn’t need a pastry plug. It’s already been eclipsed by the singularly honorable flag of Planet Earth.

  1. Thank you Doctress for taking the time to educate the sheeple who may still be lapping kool aid from the Republican trough. Murphy’s typical numbscull gibberish is aimed at those with room temperature IQ’s. He must have thought the eye patch could pull in some Johnny Depp fans.

  2. I hate to admit that I might be room temperature IQ but I honestly do thank you for enlightening me, I wish I could keep up more with the politics wich with religion does not mix. Sometimes it takes someelse to point it out especially if one does not know where to look. thanks
