The Infamous Merging of Church & State Politics: The “Rwandan Genocide” – How Race Wars, Tribal Conflicts & Theory of Divide & Conquer Pose Ominous Harbingers for 2017 & Beyond

‘The hottest places in Hell are reserved for those who, in times of great moral crisis, maintain their neutrality.’ ~ Dante Alighieri
The Puritans who dragged themselves up on to the shores of what came to be called “THE NEW WORLD” – (an oxymoronic concept) given that European history of the time was entirely ethnically exclusive (embroiled in slave trading & human trafficking, religious darkness, foul superstition and bitter tribal infighting & baseless wars amongst the barbarian fragments of the old, pagan Roman Empire), would eventually bring this same divide & conquer mindset into a place that came to be known as “the glorious land”. A unique place inhabited by Native peoples, who for centuries ran trading links, culture and an advanced esoteric civilization as far as the Caribbean, Latin Central & all of South America.
In a historical piece by Americans United (For separation Of Church & State) records show how “Roger Williams, an iconic Puritan minister who was later briefly a Baptist and after that a free-spirited Christian outside denominational bounds, founded the colony in 1636. He was driven to do it by his devotion to absolute freedom of conscience. Williams never really fit in with the theocratic Massachusetts Bay Colony. He was always making trouble and frequently challenged the oppressive union of church and state there. When the colony’s General Court decided in 1635 that all men should swear an oath of allegiance ending with “So help me, God,” Williams objected. A magistrate out not to tender an oath to an unregenerate man,” he wrote, because that would compel the oath-taker ‘to take the name of God in vain’.”
Three hundred & eighty one years later, if Trump & Pence are to be believed, the Apostate, fallen Protestant Church in AmeriKKKa will be invested with the power her Jesuit, Catholic masters have long work for and adamantly believed she will need to bring about a world ecumenical movement under the authority of the Papacy – where the Pope of Rome will rule as the Vatican did during “THE DARK AGES”.
The First Amendment of the US Constitution purposefully designed within its walls a sacred proviso which says: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof…” Some today are arguing that Thomas Jefferson’s statement: “the Separation of Church & State” (though a counter-balance for unbridled religious power, transgresses the boundaries of its rightful authority) then decided that because Jefferson was in France at the time of the Constitution’s & Bill of Rights’ drafting and approval process, his opinion on the First Amendment’s intent was interpretatively irrelevant.
True separatists Protestant apologists would beg to differ strongly over that mundane argument based on the historical evolution of what took place during Middle Ages and the “BLOOD” that was shed by the Catholic Church by the use of state force – where the organs of state control used every device at its disposal to crush Catholic dissent over what it considered blatant heresy. It was for this reason that the Pilgrims fled Europe, because they wanted no king or Pope to rule over them, given the tyranny of church & state.
In John Daniel’s book “The Grand Design Exposed” on p. 27- 78 states: “Through relentless torture, starvation, genocide, massacres, burning at the stake, against every conceivable fury of [Papal] Rome, they [i.e., the ‘seeds of protest’] could not be extinguished. History estimates that over one hundred million people lost their lives during that time of [Papal] Roman tyranny. Is it any wonder that God graphically describes this onslaught of [Papal] Rome as her being ‘drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus’, and calls her the ‘Beast’?”
In our age of such moral declension and socio-cultural dystopia, have modern day citizens of the United States of amnesia & paranoia forgotten their history? Will this selective amnesia be an ominous harbinger in the very near future, seeing that the “Sword of Damocles” now hangs so precariously over the necks of a people who have been inebriated by subliminal programming, that it will take a holocaust of Rwandan proportions to awake them from their stupor?
Almost twenty three years after the Rwandan Genocide, the appalling nature of man’s inhumanity to man cannot be understated. In the book, “Death by Government”, by the late Professor R. J. Rummel, posits some hard truths on how democide remains a “Gordian knot” running through the 20th century. He states: “Power Kills; Absolute Power Kills Absolutely. This new ‘Power Principle’ is the message emerging from my previous work on the causes of war and from this book on genocide and government mass murder – what I call democide – in [the 20th] century. The more power a government has, the more it can act arbitrarily according to the whims and desires of the Elite, and the more it will make war on others and murder its foreign and domestic subjects. The more constrained the power of governments, the more power is diffused, checked and balanced, the less it will aggress on others and commit democide. At the extremes of Power, totalitarian communist governments slaughter their people by the tens of millions; in contrast, many democracies can barely bring themselves to execute even serial murderers.”
Governments for centuries have drawn on the phenomena we call “propaganda”, to elicit the synthesis it requires based on the Hegelian Dialectic. During The Great Depression, Edward Bernays in his 1928 book, “Propaganda”, wrote of secret, ubiquitous and persuasive powers at work in society. He said that ‘we are governed, our minds are moulded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of’. Bernays was speaking at the time based on his professional expertize as a career public advertising & marketing guru. Thus he knew the power of subliminal suggestion and how the manipulation of public opinion was key to getting the masses behind an idea or a movement.
In a similar book, “Age of Propaganda: The Everyday Use and Abuse of Persuasion” by Pratkanis & Aronson cite that “Americans create 57% of the world’s advertising while representing only 6% of its population; half of our waking hours are spent immersed in the Mass Media. Persuasion has always been integral to the democratic process, but increasingly, thoughtful discussion is being replaced with simplistic soundbites and manipulative messages.”
Pratkanis & Aronson further opined that “Drawing on the history of propaganda as well as on contemporary research in social psychology, ‘Age of Propaganda’ shows how the tactics used by political campaigners, sales agents, advertisers, televangelists, demagogues, and others often take advantage of our emotions by appealing to our deepest fears and most irrational hopes, creating a distorted vision of the world we live in.”
It is this subtle mass programming which according to Professor Vejas Liulevicius have led to all the major wars, tribal conflicts and the mass genocide witnessed in Rwanda in April 1994 – where for 100 days, the citizens of what was a devoutly Christian country, (scenic beauty & terrain to die for [no pun intended]), took up machetes, guns & other tools of warfare and murder and mayhem – killing, maiming and destroying brothers, sisters, neighbours and friends in a Satanically-induced frenzy. All of it orchestrated by re-LIE*-gious forces in cahoots with the state apparatus of political control and subjugation.
In a one hour twenty-four minute documentary on BBC in concert with National Geographic that some have argued is nothing more than holocaust & genocidal revisionism – given the “Denial-Phobia” still running rampant by Anglo-Saxons, who created the tyrannical evil in the first place. As revionists still try to muzzles the real truth notwithstanding the testimonies of Rwandan Tutsi survivors who paints an untold story of their harrowing experiences. Many commentators still continue to use the outdated figure of over 500,000 for the numbers killed in the genocide while statistical reports based on the graves and empirical census figures point to numbers more in the region of over a million to 1,037,000, although no one will ever know the final total.
In Jacques Ellul’s 1962 book, aptly titled “Propaganda: The Formation of Men’s Attitudes” suggest that “Political propaganda aims to mobilize the masses to move an agenda forward. That’s most effectively done when the masses are unaware of the process. It’s what “community organizers” work towards, whether they know it or not. Once the masses are mobilized to push for a cause, the propagandists’ goals can be put into law.”
If Ellul is correct, then we can deduce (in a POST-OBAMA era) how a Black man of (mixed race) – a “Community Organizer” from Chicago was able to become President, for the select purpose of carrying out a proscribed neo-liberal agenda which would ultimately lead to what we are now seeing across the AmeriKKKan socio-political landscape. Clearly, it was all an orchestrated “SET-UP” by the Caucasian Elite!
No credible critic can deny the central plank which “reLIEgion” played in the Rwandan state Genocide. When the “LETHAL COCKTAIL” of church & state fuses, what emerges is often the Brotherhood of the Dragon. The above piece cites that “Christianity and the state of Rwanda are almost inseparable. Their history together started almost immediately Christianity began in the East African nation. The Belgian colonial masters started their colonisation through the church, and at a point, the church was at the centre of government. Whoever the church favoured was favoured, whoever they blessed was blessed, and whoever they cursed remained cursed. Such was the power and influence of the church in Rwanda. The relationship between the church and the Tutsi is explained in a documentary titled “IN THE NAME OF GOD”
In Rwanda, 90% of the country’s citizens considered themselves Christian. The debacle surrounding the genocide was in many ways a punt from the play-book of Mediaeval Dark Ages Europe – where the Catholic Church was intent of making this picturesquely, beautiful African country the “Poster-child” for its nefarious shenanigans by taking a cross section of uneducated Black Africans and fomented a plan of divide and conquer by using the historical penchant of tribalism.
What is equally sickening was the fact that President Bill Clinton knew that this diabolical evil was going to unfold but he did nothing to stop the loss of some 300,000 lives, had he acted then, would have saved the lives of another 700,000+ innocent men, women & children. With mid-term elections going on and AmeriKKKa’s debilitated appetite for military intervention in a Black nation, which most saw as savages fighting amongst themselves, and given that there was no serious mineral wealth to protect – Caucasian foreigners were simply shuttled out before the CRAP hit the fan.
Anyone who can justify imperialist wars of aggression based on regime change, protection of oil, natural gas & mineral rights or the flagrant disregard of the tenets of democracy vouchsafed by government, by the people and for the people, can only be described as tyrannical.
This must be resisted by any means necessary!
Bill Clinton continued with his narrow platitudes, well after the demonic deeds were done, by insinuating in the Huffington Post that “#BlackLivesMatter in Africa, in one of his many responses to Black Lives Matter activists’ protest over his controversial crime and welfare bills, and comments by former First Lady Hillary Clinton. The words were in reference to a Tanzanian shopkeeper who named his shop after presidential candidate, and his wife, Hillary Clinton…”
However, Claude Gatebuke, who is a Rwandan war and genocide survivor remarks that: “On the day the Rwandan Genocide is generally commemorated, former President Clinton’s words rang hollow both in material and delivery. Instead, they conjured up images, of white foreigners being evacuated from Rwanda to safety at the outset of the genocide. The rest of us, the innocent civilians, were provided with neither the option of evacuation, nor the decency of protection, but were left, amidst a bloody war and genocide, come what may.”
This is the legacy of the EDOMITES* in the land!
Many so-called Christian reLIEgious groups were involved in this mass murder (from Pentecostals to Seventh day Adventists) – however, the Catholic instigators bear the brunt of the blood upon their hands, given that the Jesuits who were responsible for the educational institutions in Rwanda – sole intent was the extermination of the Protestants in the country by using other protestants and they knew that using the “RACIALIZATION” factor as a pretext for malicious propaganda would have violent repercussions.
The Seventh Day Adventist Church leadership in Rwanda was especially culpable, as pastors and others in leadership roles, took bribes and joined in the tyranny to destroy their own brothers and sisters in the faith, which has left a damnable stain upon the character of a church organization which purports to uphold such lofty standards and positions of doctrinal purity & righteousness. Adventist magazine, Spectrum, lays out a narrative which clearly shows that when you peel away all the layers of lacquered religiosity – all that’s left are “UN-CONSECRATED” human beings, who in times of perilous adversity, cannot and will not live and practice what they claim to believe. More so, when rank complicity is merged with the tyranny of those who have evil intentions towards others – simply shows that we are just as bad – if not worse than the Scribes & Pharisees of Jesus’ day.
May God help us to learn the lessons and to avoid these historical snares!
As President-SELECT* Donald Trump takes office on January 20th, 2017 – the world gulps and swallows with bated breath. No one quite knows what the first 100 days in office holds. Further on, speculation over the next 4 years remains shrouded in a form of manic anxiety, daunting mystery and ominous foreboding – where most expect bedlam and are preparing for the worst. Some folks are already packing up, selling up and moving up to Canada and other English-speaking countries.
The mass mind control programming that have been done on most human beings harps back to scholarship done by Dutch psychiatrist Joost A. M. Meerloo around 60 years ago, where he opines in his ground-breaking work entitled: “The Rape of the Mind: The Psychology of Thought Control, Menticide, and Brainwashing” where he states that “his book attempts to depict the strange transformation of the free human mind into an automatically responding machine – a transformation which can be brought about by some of the cultural undercurrents in our present-day society, as well as by deliberate experiments in the service of a political ideology.” Is this the reason why we are witnessing in AmeriKKKan, British, European & politics across the globe, a socio-political meltdown, given that TRUTH has been the first commodity to disappear from the shelves of commonsense and common reason when tyranny takes hold?
So-called educated human beings seem to have lost all powers of reason and logic – allowing the mood music of propaganda to sway their intellectual decision-making processes. If we have learnt nothing from the subterfugal machinations of 2016 – doubtless there will be any transient awakening any time soon – barring a cataclysmic phenomenon occurring on our doorsteps, most will continue, merrily, merrily – life is but a dream! In a state of almost abject “denial”.
We are the resistance! We must push back against all forms of tyranny and evil in our world. That much said – the pen remains mightier than the sword! #Maranatha
