Uther Pendragon is a Neocon


Uther would have been right on board with the unprovoked invasion of Iraq, as long as you told him that Hussein was developing chemical, nuclear, and magical WMD

There’s this show on BBC called Merlin. It covers the story of Camelot, of Arthur and Merlin, when they’re teenagers.

Prince Arthur’s father is, of course, King Uther Pendragon. In this version, Uther’s son is learning to become the good ruler his father is not.

In watching the show, Uther is presented ambiguously, as one of the protagonists, but I find myself force to take a stance (in my head, or to friends) against him, because he is constantly doing things that, were he not one of the “good guys”, would be instantly recognized as evil.

In fact, I’ve come to the conclusion that he is actually the most evil part of the show, the actual antagonist without whom none of the greatest wrongs or conflict would occur.

What’s most interesting, though, is that every single aspect of his role in the show is identical to that of the violent, authoritarian interventionists in the American and British political class (sadly, this turns out to include Obama), in real life.

Although it’s a specific movement of Trotskyites, I’m using the term “neocon” for this movement, because it’s familiar and its evils are widely recognized across most of the political spectrum.

Uther Pendragon / A Neocon:

  • Claims to defend the people’s rights, but governs as an authoritarian, using safety as their excuse
  • Once quietly supported a movement for their own gain, but then decided it was their enemy
  • Has since imposed a police state, along with supportING violence, war, and tyranny elsewhere, in the name of stamping out that movement
  • Will unhesitatingly torture, imprison, or kill in pursuit of the war against the movement, including using proxies in order to be able to claim clean hands for themselves
  • Will threaten, imprison, and worse anyone who might reveal their involvement in some of these evils
  • With their brutality and wrongdoing in the name of crushing the movement and any other opposition, has created their own enemies
  • Those enemies included good people, driven bad by desperation under the evils of the abusive government
  • And actual evil men, criminals, et cetera, who would have been nothing more than part of a fringe underworld end up able to ally with and manipulate the desperate good people, gaining far more power and influence than they would without the evil of the abusive government
  • The people of the nation end up being subjected to retribution and violence driven purely as blowback against the previous evils of their government
  • That government lacks credibility in the struggles for justice of many other lands, despite a long-past history of being a beacon of justice

Frankly, I could have written an article about either the violent interventionists of the American political class, or Uther Pendragon, and then just did a search and replace for words like Bush/Uther, Camelot/America, and magic/Muslims, Gaius/Assange, and published the new version credibly, without any other modification.

Whose evils does this article really reveal most clearly…the fictional Uther or the real Neocons? Sadly, I think it’s hard to say.

Gingrich and Santorum are Enemy Combatants


Freedom of speech is one of the most important, fundamental, sacred American values.

Secrecy in government, on the other hand, is one of the worst forms of tyranny.

So when politicos like Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum call for people fighting against government secrecy to be falsely classified as “enemy combatants”, “a terrorist organization”, or even to be assassinated or publicly executed, it’s pretty clear who the real enemy of America is.

What Wikileaks, and its founder Julian Assange, have vowed to do…and done, far more than most of us ever expected…is to bring the openness to American politics that politicians like Obama, McCain, and Bush promised but ended up opposing in almost all things.

They exposed Hillary Clinton ordering DNA samples and credit card information stolen from top UN officials.

They revealed a source of the bizarre push to attack Iran; it’s being ordered by the world’s top sponsor of terrorism, Saudi Arabia.

They showed that the US is secretly using its missiles and drones to slaughter people in foreign countries, while the tyrannical, abusive governments of those countries claimed credit.

The response to the whistle-blowing of these inexcusable coverups?

Above, we have a list of crimes against the American Constitution…but the criminals are named in the first half of each sentence, not the second.

Entrapment: The FBI Rolls its Own Terrorism


The FBI has a disturbing pattern of taking loudmouth bluffers and pushing them into FBI-supplied "crimes"

All over America, right now, drunks are sitting in bars talking about how they’d love to shoot their evil Ex in the head. Almost none of them will ever do it, of course.

But, someday, one will.

If the police state then organizes a task force to go around offering guns and encouragement to those drunks, then arresting any who are talked into acting on their bluff, it will be entrapment.

Some of those men (almost all, in fact) would never otherwise have done it.

Right now, all over America, angry people are talking about how they’d like to do this or that thing that really amounts to terrorism, if it weren’t petty hot air. A task force looking for these people and offering to help them is exactly the same kind of entrapment evil.

Some goofy, poser kid in Oregon was recently bragging that he could “get a gun because I’m a rapper”, wanted to blow something up, et cetera.

The FBI contacted this kid, pretending to be a terrorist organization, and got him to accept a fake bomb, which he then tried to use to blow up a Christmas tree.

This was precisely the same kind of unacceptable entrapment. We will never know whether the kid would have actually tried to blow up anything, without our own government’s encouragement and enablement.

And worse, this is a disturbing pattern. They did it in Chicago, Dallas, New York, Rockford, and elsewhere. We also don’t know how many will be spurred on to do something they wouldn’t have, but end up bypassing the FBI scammer and actually kill someone BECAUSE of our own government’s urging, as happened with the 1992 WTC Bombing.

Entrapment is always wrong…even when the police state uses Appeal to Cowardice to justify it.
