There is no justifiable reason to celebrate independence day.

To many of you, my words are treason. But to those who exist under the imperial juggernaut that is the united states government, to those who struggle with maintaining a manageable life in a society that exploits them dry to the bone, and to those who experienced first-hand the unforgiving wrath of this state’s domestic and international violence; my treasonous words speak only truth. 

While you run to your nearest window in excitement when you hear an explosion, families in Libya, Afghanistan, Somalia, Pakistan, and Yemen cower and panic from bombs bursting in air over their heads shot from our country.

While you wave your flag to express your patriotic spirit, Puerto Ricans, Cubans, Mexicans, Haitians, Dominicans, and other Caribbean, Central, and South american peoples feel resentment and loathing to the forced glorification of the flag responsible for their collective historical and contemporary destabilization and torment. 

While you deify commanders in chieves, either founding fathers or recent presidents, indigenous peoples across the north amerikan continent and its captured territories and its documented and undocumented immigrants see only the blind cult worship of murderous colonial settlers or those responsible for tearing apart families and livelihoods.

What is there to celebrate in a country founded by settler colonialism?
What is there to celebrate in a country built by genocide and slave labor?
What is there to celebrate in a country that favors the rich over the poor?
What is there to celebrate in a country that puts profits before people?
What is there to celebrate in a country responsible for capturing foreign land?
What is there to celebrate in a country that’s responsible for toppling foreign democratic governments for the sake of corporations?
What is there to celebrate in a country that needs constant crisis to survive and is responsible for creating both refugees and terrorists?
What is there to celebrate in a country that still uses slavery as punishment for prisoners?
What is there to celebrate in a country that harassed, murdered, and imprisoned marginalized groups since inception, and does little to actively protect them?
What is there to celebrate in a country whose leaders only care to listen to you when they want your vote, then shut you out whenever you have a problem?

If you truly do care about humanity, about mankind’s troubles: stop supporting the nation responsible for our collective international misery.

There is no justifiable reason to celebrate independence day.

House Democrat introduces article of impeachment against Donald Trump

  • Rep. Brad Sherman (D-Calif.) on Wednesday introduced an article of impeachment against President Donald Trump, saying he obstructed justice when he fired former FBI Director James Comey.
  • “Recent disclosures by Donald Trump Jr. indicate that Trump’s campaign was eager to receive assistance from Russia,” Sherman said in a statement. “It now seems likely that the president had something to hide when he tried to curtail the investigation of national security advisor Michael Flynn and the wider Russian probe. I believe his conversations with, and subsequent firing of, FBI Director James Comey constitute obstruction of justice.”
  • The article — the first formal legislative move taken to remove Trump from the White House — was co-sponsored by Rep. Al Green (D-Texas) but reportedly does not have any other supporters at this point.  Read more (7/12/17)
