We did it.  For over a hundred years, proud Americans were belittled and marginalized for openly celebrating extra-judicial killings -- for bringing the family and posing for photos at a lynching.  Little details - like the executed man wasn't convicted in any court - stood in the way of what entire communities intuitively knew to be true: that this person is guilty and deserves to die.

Now all of my fans understand, and we're cheering together.  If your community is terrified and you're fighting a war against that terror, you can't waste time and resources.  When good people are sure someone is guilty, all that charging him with a crime, indicting, evidence, trials, judges, convictions -- it's so much bureaucracy it's practically unAmerican.

I've never lived in the South but I've always felt bad for my southern and Republican friends over the heavy social judgements made against them by the Professional Left.

We don't call it lynching anymore, of course.  But does every sheriff who has someone locked up without charges have to be able to pronounce "extra-judicial killing" to shoot him?  That's like saying every president with his finger on the button needs to be able to pronounce "nuclear".  Well, I won't let anyone call me an ivy league elitist.

First the people needed to be eased into it.  We started with bin Laden -- who took credit for 9-11 but wasn't charged, and was shot in the head twice when he was found unarmed.

Then outspoken US citizen Anwar Awlaki: never charged, indicted or convicted - just killed.  
Then his innocent 16 year old son and his companion.  No point in the kid growing up angry and avenging his father.  It's part of the same anti-terrorism program that has us bomb rescue teams and funerals after a drone attack.

Now my fans accept every declaration of secrecy and cheer (or ignore) every drone strike.  We'll be fully healed when we finally embrace our brothers and sisters and the children shown at this lynching in Virginia.

All that's left is to end the old hateful view of lynching as some kind of racist act.  But it never was: even in Mississippi and Alabama there was never an official rule that only negroes could be lynched.  Likewise, I swear to you that in our secret process there's no rule that only Muslims and brown people can be executed by my mideast and African drones.

I know there will be leftists, skeptics and jihadist sympathizers who won't believe I'm being fair and just, because I've never assassinated a white person, a Christian or a Jew.  They'd love to cast this as religious persecution and racism -- even though I'm black!

Well trust me -- I'm working very hard to finally correct that perception.  Our ideal target would be an atheist albino.  We're very excited about getting a hold of Julian Assange -- he looks like he might be both!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
