No one did more damage in the modern era to the American experiment than Dwight Eisenhower.
He was and is an American Quisling.
He betrayed the values of the Founding Fathers which are rooted in a decent Christianity that respects and values other people.
Throughout the 1950s when Alan Dulles and John Foster Dulles were tear-assing around the globe committing much naughtiness against sovereign nations, Dwight Eisenhower stood by and gave his tacit approval.
In 1953 we overthrew the government of Iran.
In 1954 we overthrew the government of Jacobo Arbenz in Guatemala.
Throughout the 1950s Ike set the table for what would become the Vietnam war in which millions of people died.
He aggravated the government of Indonesia which was finally replaced in 1965. The man, Suharto, that our CIA installed, killed one million communists. The CIA was not ashamed.
Ike tried like hell to kill Patrice Lamumba of the Congo. Who cares about the Congo? Everybody cares about the Congo. The Congo is the most valuable piece of real estate in the world.
When Lamumba leaned (you only need to lean) toward the commies, our leaders decided to deep six him.
Many of the problems that we face today, such as our ongoing conflict with Iran, our massive immigration problems coming from Central America, can be laid at the feet of Dwight Eisenhower.
The entire debacle of Vietnam could have been avoided had Eisenhower taken an enlightened approach to their desire for independence.
Eisenhower though became another President in the long line of Presidents who kneeled before corporate power.
That Ike warned us of the military industrial complex is a joke.
Sorry, my friend, you don’t get points by fucking me over and then warning me about yourself when you’re ready to retire.
Ike was the military industrial complex and had been his entire life.
He was groomed to lead.
In the Philippines he was Douglas MacArthur‘s assistant.
In World War II he was commander of the armies.
For crying out loud, he became the President of the United States.
In short, Ike was the military industrial complex.
When Joe McCarthy reported on communists at Fort Monmouth, what was Ike’s response?
Was Ike gratified that Joe McCarthy had exposed an espionage ring at Fort Monmouth?
Not at all.
Not only did Ike not appreciate McCarthy’s efforts, he worked behind the scenes to destroy Joe McCarthy.
What Joe McCarthy was really revealing to the American people was that our government was acting contrary to the positions they would state publicly, contrary to the dreams and aspirations of the American people, and contrary to the principles of the Founding Fathers as they embodied them in the Constitution.
It’s fair to say that the American people are primarily interested in the welfare of the American people, as they should be, as any citizen of any country should be regarding their own country.
Ike betrayed the American people.
Like Truman, like George C Marshall, Ike bowed down to corporate interests.
He and his ilk were globalists.
In those days we called them communists.
Today we understand more fully that there is no real difference between communism, fascism, crony capitalism and corporate socialism. It’s all the same.
Ike placed corporate money above the welfare of the American people.
He ruthlessly prosecuted an unnecessary and fruitless Cold War that expanded the government, enlarged the military, and enriched the corporations and their leaders far beyond what any actual war could produce.
If Franklin Roosevelt was the architect of corporate tyranny, surely Dwight Eisenhower was its general contractor.
He was an American Quisling.
