Since 9/11, the English vernacular has changed in ways that no one could imagine, thanks to Bush. I remember when Rebels, Freedom Fighters, Militants, Revolutionist had a meaning, and now of all of those meanings have become extinct. Now it’s words like terrorist, insurgency, terrorism, and so on that are constantly used to define something that has nothing to do with terrorism, or the like. Now an illegal immigrant is a terrorist. A freedom fighter is a terrorist. So what is next? A protester is a terrorist? A revolutionist is an insurgent?
I bring this point because every time some pinhead leader of a state i.e. bush, blair, gedi, yusuf…talks about opposition parties, freedom fighters, or revolutionist, they use “terrorist” as a way to scare the shit out of ordinary people. I remember the 2006 Midterm election in the U.S. when the republicans put on that infamous “if you vote democrat, you’re voting for bin laden.” I mean, what has this world come to? Fear, fear, fear? I’m tired of these assholes telling me what I should be afraid of. I know what I’m afraid of: assholes who start war that they should’ve never started in the first place. I know I’m more likely to be struck by a lighting than a terrorist attack. So why the hell should I take these self-appointed pricks serious?
Maybe it’s time we all start our own revolution. A revolution that says no to fear and bullshit.
