Alfred's Odd Ode #385
- Alfred's Odd Ode #385 (June 4, 2004)
Bigotry disgusts me. It's a bane on humankind. It's at the root of all
that's wrong; a rot that fills our minds. It presupposes honesty; it's
ignorance extant! Bigotry insults the sense of where one's really at.
Bigotry belies good sense, has something less than heart, and hardens ones
insentience to its paucity of smarts.
Bigotry's a liar, false witness will it bear, and it proves it has no
conscience living lies without a care. Authoritarian, inflexible, and
dogmatic when it's wrong, it has practiced, flawlessly, malfeasance all
along. Masquerading as the measure of a way to live ones life, it weaves a
cloth of misery and contributes to our strife.
It keeps us from reality, obscures a ready truth, and cuts the nose off
faces like it's found its only use. It foments a resentment, provokes a
_just_ contempt, and fuels a detestation on its opening attempt. It dulls
the wit, betrays the trust, and breaks the ties that bind, as is usual with
intolerance from a less than open mind.
Bigotry is why we fail. Bigotry? Defeat! Bigotry is where we lose.
Bigotry? Conceit! It's a limiter of wisdom as perception is decreased.
It's all the wrong ideas and its ethics are diseased. It's bigotry that
turns back clocks to suit an arbitrary so just a few can profit on the
misery of many.
It's lack of understanding and the conflict that must bring. It's terror in
our futures! It's an awful... loathsome thing. It prostitutes our honor.
It increases our travail. Bigotry offends the soul like Christ's three
nine-inch nails. Bigotry lacks all respect. Bigotry's despised. Bigotry
is at the source of _all_ that cheats and lies!
The first thoughts expressed from our tinhorn lapdog media regarding the
Mexican FLIR UFO sightings in March was born of sneering disrespect,
laughing dismissal, and a reflexive bigotry refined in 100 years of social
hijacking, corporate manipulation, and cultural conflictedness. Bigotry,
again, went largely unchallenged.
The bleached neo-aristocracy concocting, nurturing, and otherwise
maintaining this bigotry looks down its nose at the rest of the world, and
through the aforementioned corrupt media's unceasing propaganda facilitates
the generation... of generation after generation of _new_ bigots. It's the
To be "black" was to get back and to be "brown" was an invitation out of
town, or how else does one explain the very real difference between the
United States comparatively closed _southern_ border when contrasted with
the more open _northern_ one? And no, I don't hate America; I just think
she's better served by reflective and thoughtful criticism than she is by
reflexive and thoughtless adulation. Question my patriotism, please. I'll
eat your literary face...
The days are over when we can look around the world and see a 'superiority'
born of what has been proffered to us by conflicted agencies, suspicious
institutions, and appointed governments. The people south of our border
cannot be dismissed as taco-bending siesta takers sleeping off their latest
peasant banquet of rice, beans, and tequila -- ignorant and credulous
savages seeing angels and UFOs... or living hand to mouth in non-awareness
and intellectual squalor (...as is subtly suggested by our official media
and stealthily practiced by ourselves!). We dishonor, humiliate, and
_betray_ ourselves (in the long run), not to mention THEM... to perpetuate
these egregious unspoken myths.
We are talking about human beings, reader, located immediately south of a
dry dusty border - credible persons like ourselves with their own
prerequisites, predilections, and prerogatives ... intelligent and educated
people, forthright and deliberate people... smart, focused, and courageous
people. Indeed, this is exactly what was demonstrated in the recorded
behavior of the intrepid pilots with regard to the Mexican UFO FLIR case!
I was a professional pilot for many years, reader. I trained, and was
trained by, the absolute best, achieved all the highest ratings available...
like IP (instructor pilot) SIP (standardization instructor pilot) and IFE
(instrument flight examiner). I had an 'experiential' 'PhD' in professional
aeronautics and aviation systems management. I flew as Aircraft Commander
in combat, served in line aviation units in supervisory positions, was the
Senior TAC Officer at the Army's only Warrant Officer Candidate School, and
finally ended my career as a military aviator evaluating candidate aviators
for an aviation career track. I was the aviation _judge_, ladies and
skeptibunkies, for many years. Verily.
The Mexican pilots in that aircraft, from what I have seen and heard thus
far... were top freaking drawer! They were models of courage... just being
out there to perform their duty (!)... forgetting that they encountered
something decidedly off the 'menu' of what they were, already, bravely
looking for... drug-runners, something a little dodgy to begin with...
The bravery they displayed was nothing short of exemplary! They found the
grit, gravitas, and sizable cahones to laugh, however nervously, abruptly
_surrounded_ by the highly strange! Still, under extreme duress and beyond
duty's call -- they functioned. With precision, calmness, and proficiency
they continued to do their jobs. In a position to know, I can report that
it just doesn't _get_ any better than that. _Yea_ and verily!
I'd like to think that _I_ would have been as brave and professional as
these men were in the performance of their duty. I would like to think
that I could have been as cool and practiced as they were, undeniably,
during this entirely out of the box (...and far reaching!) affair. But... I
don't know. I don't know.
It remains that these Mexican pilots were, though. Indisputably, they are
on record and laboriously translated by John Velez among others, as such.
And, in as much as they provided no self-humiliating ammunition (...absolute
ly zero in this writer's professional opinion...), they are just the thing
to obviate the ignorant and _baseless_ bigotry that is entertained by those
north of their border, and fanned by that duplicitous popular culture for
them... about their (ongoing!) UFO sightings, courage to be interested in
those UFOs, and then, with real guts, their reports on same.
America? We _can_ (and better!) take the lesson!
