Not just Bolivia
I observed yesterday
that Deepstate is preparing the redefinition of Bolivia that always precedes an invasion. Evo is
an illegitimate usurper, and we have the moral "right" and "obligation" to remove him before he does any more good for his people.
Now the process is starting for Mexico. AMLO hasn't been fighting drug gangs firmly enough, and our DEA-sponsored drug gang recently defeated the police. Deepstate, via The Israelist,
has redefined Mexico. Mexico is
a failed state.
An eye for an eye, a definition for a definition. Our redefinition of Venezuela didn't work, and we've finally been chased out of Syria by the long hard efforts of the sane side of the world. Two definitions down, so we need two new definitions and two new obliterations.
I wonder what Sam Johnson would think of this. He defined a lexicographer as a harmless drudge. Modern lexicographers are mass murderers. Words have always been weapons for propaganda, but the genocidal power of a single definition is relatively new.
When a man is
a woman, he can commit all sorts of crimes with impunity. When a country is
a failed state, we can wipe it off the map with impunity.
