The Rediscovery of Osama Bin Laden

Once you accept that terrorism is a justifiable weapon for the oppressed, this isn’t really that much of a stretch.

It’s not as if bin Laden’s letter to America was a big secret. It was always out there for anybody to read if they wanted to. Few wanted to. That’s all changed as it’s gone viral. While reddit removed the letter, it’s still available should anyone want to read it. For a quick taste, here’s how it starts.

I say from the onset:

Your former president warned you previously about the devastating Jewish control of capital and about a day that would come when it would enslave you; it has happened. Your current president warns you now about the enormity of capital control and it has a cycle whereby it devours humanity when it is devoid of the precepts of God’s law (Shari’a). The tyranny of the control of capital by large companies has harmed your economy, as it did ours, and that was my motivation for this talk. Tens of millions of you are below the poverty line, millions have lost their homes, and millions have lost their jobs to mark the highest average unemployment in 60 years. Your financial system in its totality was about to collapse within 48 hours had not the administration reverted to using taxpayer’s money to rescue the vultures by using the assets of the victims. As for us, our Iraq was invaded in response to pressure from capitalists with greed for black gold, and you continue to support the oppressive Israelis in their occupation of our Palestine in response to pressures on your administration by a Jewish lobby backed by enormous financial capabilities.

Forget about what you think of the letter, of the attacks on 9/11, and consider its rediscovery in the paradigm of people who have accepted, if not embraced, the belief that the rape, kidnapping and murder of women, children and the elderly (and yes, men too, not that anybody gives a damn about men these days) is an understandable response to simplistic claims of oppression.

If they can excuse October 7th, they can understand September 11th as well. And why not? The cynic will explain that the only reason the United States reacted with outrage over the 9/11 attacks was because it happened to us, it happened on our soil. Why would we be special? Why are the grievances of Palestinians no less a reflection of our policies and actions supporting their oppressor, Israel, and our own greedy capitalists who care only for black gold?

It’s unclear whether they would have applauded the planes flying into the Twin Towers, but would they have been sufficiently understanding and accepting of the need to kill thousands to fight oppression “by any means necessary”? If they can understand Hamas, why wouldn’t they be able to understand Bin Laden?

And if the rape, kidnapping and murder isn’t so heinous as to be rejected and reviled under any circumstances, then why would it present a problem for Israel, and its “genocidal” conspirator, America, to accept the premise that October 7th, like September 11th, was justified and capitulate to the terrorists? And that is, indeed, the final solution.

This isn’t to say that all progressives have fallen down the rabbit hole of embracing terrorism as a justifiable weapon for the cause, just because they chant “from the river to the sea” and “intifada.” But if only one percent of the American population accepts this premise, that’s 3.3 million people. And if only a tenth of a percent is prepared to act upon their ideology, that’s 330,000 people. It no longer seems far-fetched to think that terrorism can happen here again, and this time by our own people, our own children, who have lost their way.

    Perhaps all of these female SJW’s should pack their stuff and move to Afghanistan if they think the US is so bad and this “LETTER” has triggered them so much.

    We’ll have to see how this all plays out. But to remark, my view of unrest, hatreds, incidents of violence, and such over the past several years is that civil war in America is (or was) unlikely and probably impossible because the different, varied sides could not be recognized. But this question of recognizing the enemy or the opposition is starting to clear up — note the uniform garb worn by the protestors at the DNC. Also, as we’ve seen in recent pro-Palestinian demonstrations, a kiffeyah was worn by many of the demonstrators, symbolic of identification with the Palestinians, but also potentially an element of a uniform. Too much analysis to go more into this here. But the trend is obvious. Sides are becoming clearer, as the varied groups combining to become the pro-Palestinian side have synthesized, for the moment at any rate. One of the most informative books I’ve ever read on this pre-civil war phenomenon eventuating in savage civil war and political-social revolution is “The Shadow of the Winter Palace: Russia’s Drift to Revolution 1825-1917” by Edward Crankshaw. When I checked on the spelling of “kiffeyeh” with Google, there was a line of pictures of kiffeyehs for sale at many online stores, including Amazon. I wonder what business Amazon is doing in the sale of kiffeyehs.

      Not to disagree entirely with the main point of your comment, I can offer some reasons why businesses like Amazon sell kiffeyehs. The are extremely useful in a sunny environment. Almost every PX clothing store I have been in sells them to American soldiers. They can regularly be seen worn during field training and operations. They are incredibly useful for keeping the sun off one’s neck, as well as for use as a dust shield over the face.

    It boggles the mind that the same people who were chanting “believe all women” just a few years ago and who thought nothing of ruining young men’s lives because a woman, who might have ‘recontextualized’ a college hook up with a classmate, can now justify ACTUAL rape and murder. These people have shit for brains.

    Also, did they miss this line “Your current president warns you now about the enormity of capital control and it has a cycle whereby it devours humanity when it is devoid of the precepts of God’s law (Shari’a).” Do they understand what “Shari’a” entails. Where women are property of the men, and are beheaded because they somehow dishonored the family? Again, shit for brains. I don’t know what to make of this ‘cult’ because that is what it is. It’s a cult that these young people have joined.

    The “mostly peaceful protests” have come home to roost, as the rabble of lumpen street thugs has turned on its former masters.

      They plan to give Genocide Joe some time to think about it.

    A keffiyeh is contextual. In a desert environment a keffiyeh or shemagh is equipment, on a college campus a keffiyeh is a hipster swastika. Similarly an inflammatory manifesto can be a subject of study or a call to violence. I wonder how many TikTok users fit the intersecting set of reciting Bin Laden now and role-playing Anne Frank two years ago.

    Sit down, I have something to tell you about domestic terrorism and it’s going to make you very sad.

        There once was a poster called Jake
        Who purported to have a hot take.
        He pretended to show
        He was all in the know
        But the truth was that he was just Fake.

            To be fair, it was all you deserved. As I’ve tried to explain to you many times, retorts like “educate yourself” are vapid crap. Maybe someday you’ll understand, but today is not that day.
