Rock, Palin and the Rumors (Reality) of a New World Order

Ministry and Megadeath sang of a New World Order.

“…Joining hands with the wicked one/Revelation has come to pass/ New world order, will hold the mass/A book written by man/Used to control and command/All rights will be denied/Without the mark you shall die/No confession, all is know/New world order, you shall be shown/New world order comes in stages/Currency is obsolete/Feel the agony of defeat/Symbol of society today/A must have or you shall pay/As human flesh leads the mind/Just as a pawn the last martyr dies…”

I couldn’t help think of my angst filled youth draped in black and discussing various conspiracy theories with my teen cohort when I read the recent article by Naomi Wolfe on the Huffington Post warning of the impending police state with Sarah Palin riding at the helm. Click here to read the complete article.

“Please understand what you are looking at when you look at Sarah “Evita” Palin. You are looking at the designated muse of the coming American police state.

You have to understand how things work in a closing society in order to understand “Palin Power.” A gang or cabal seizes power, usually with an affable, weak figurehead at the fore. Then they will hold elections — but they will make sure that the election will be corrupted and that the next affable, weak figurehead is entirely in their control. Remember, Russia has Presidents; Russia holds elections. Dictators and gangs of thugs all over the world hold elections. It means nothing. When a cabal has seized power you can have elections and even presidents, but you have freedom…

…What’s the plan? It is this. McCain doesn’t matter. Reputable dermatologists are discussing the fact that in simply actuarial terms, John McCain has a virulent and life-threatening form of skin cancer. It is the elephant in the room, but we must discuss the health of the candidates: doctors put survival rates for someone his age at two to four years. I believe the Rove-Cheney cabal is using Sarah Palin as a stalking horse, an Evita figure, to put a popular, populist face on the coming police state and be the talk show hostess for the end of elections as we know them. If McCain-Palin get in, this will be the last true American election. She will be working for Halliburton, KBR, Rove and Cheney into the foreseeable future — for a decade perhaps — a puppet “president” for the same people who have plundered our treasure, are now holding the US economy hostage and who murdered four thousand brave young men and women in a way of choice and lies.

How, you may ask, can I assert this? How can I argue, as I now do, that there is actually a war being ramped up against US citizens and our democracy and that Sarah Palin is the figurehead and muse for that war?

Look at the RNC. This is supposed to be McCain’s America. But you see the unmistakable theatre of Rove’s S and M imagery — and you see stages eight, nine and ten of the steps to a dictatorship as I outlined them in The End of America. Preemptive arrest? Abusive arrest? “Newly released footage, which was buried to avoid confiscation, shows riot cops arresting and abusing a giant group of people for nothing…

…I am not telling you this because it’s about my life. I am telling you this because it is about your life — whoever you are, Conservative or Liberal, independent or evangelical. Your politics will not protect you in a police state. History shows that nothing protects you in a police state. This is not about my fear and anxiety: it is about what awaits you and everyone you love unless you see this for what it is”

In the first few eeks of Palin’s arrival on the national stage, I asked my students how much they know about this woman.  Crickets.  Tears in my eyes.  Their faces were glazed over.  How could they miss the momentous period in our history?  How could they sit back idly without learning everything they could?  How come half my students were/are not registered to vote?

While there are multiple variables involved, it is foolish to overlook the amount of hours they play Halo and World of War Craft. In fact so much time is gobbled by addictive video games that rehab centers have sprung up to treat the afflicted.

When my students know more about the Jolie-Pitt children than the political future of our nation, I have to examine the environment they’re immersed in.  By and large, the general population is inundated with mediated messages sponsored by entities interested in selling not informing.  The relationships and characters on Desperate Housewives and Ugly Betty become more real than their own. In this media climate, Sarah Palin and her action figures fit right in.

  1. Wow….this honestly has to be the best article I’ve read in a LONG time (this includes Ron Paul’s emails/articles) This is so true on so many levels (I resent that Halo comment, however! haha…but, video games will be all we have left if the GOP ticket is sworn in).

    Mel, I’m so impressed by this article, I guess I didn’t know you felt this passionate about it. It makes me really excited that, as a teacher, you are able to touch so many young people on issues that concern THEM directly, some just don’t know it yet. Your class has been a real eye-opener for me and I have recommended it to all my friends.

    I knew you wouldn’t be fooled by the Palin VP choice. This woman outright scares me. I’m looking forward to her being eaten alive by Biden in the VP debates. Biden’s real knowledge and experience will be too much for anything Palin will try to regurgitate from all the “prepping” by advisors on foreign policy.

    Although Ron Paul is my first choice and in my opinion the answer to all our problems, I have a lot of faith in Obama…I don’t think I’ve ever seen a man with so much inspiration since JFK and Bobby Kennedy, and that’s saying a lot. Did you see Obama on O’Reilly? Haha, even Bill couldn’t deny Obama’s all-around intelligence.

    People like to throw around the word experience when it comes to Obama, but he is the exception in my opinion. Let’s face it, two families have ran this country since ’89, that’s 20 years! And that’s not even including Bush Sr. as VP, that’s another 8… for 20 of 28 years, the Bush regime has been in power…experience is the LAST thing we need. We need someone like Obama to come and clean up house…I really think he’s legit, I honestly do the guy is special…As Bill Mahr said in last week’s episode of his show when it came to American’s making the right decision for the election: “I honestly do not trust Americans to do the right thing or make the right choice, they’re just too f*ckin dumb.” People might get offended by that statement, I surely don’t, anyone who does is probably the same people that voted in Bush in 2000 or 2004. Ok I’m done for now, looking forward to reading more of your articles! Keep up the great work.

  2. This scares me so much. I am reminded of the moive V for Vendetta. The sence where Evey Hammond is out past curfew.(which will more then likely happen if Palin ends up as president)She has an encounter with three men who end up being government officals. I feel that this will end up being a tatic to keep people quiet and scared. When you do not know who is watching you will not speak up and go along with the government says.

    This will make people scared of thier goverenment and the dumbing down of America will continue until Americans can no longer offically think for themsleves.
