Returning to America

by Ken O’Keefe

I will be returning to America in the next 36 hours as a publicly accused “terrorist operative”, according to the Israeli military that is.  It will be interesting to see how my birth nation will handle me.  Especially because I headed to Gaza aboard the Freedom Flotilla in order to “train a commando unit for Hamas” (according to Israel).  But before I was venturing to train commando units I was already on the US “terror watch list”.

To be honest, having the two greatest purveyors of terrorism and propaganda accuse me of “terrorism” is a massive compliment.  Living as we do in George Orwell’s 1984, where black is white and white is black and the truth is nothing but a word, being a “terrorist” is a great thing.  You see in this New World Order kind of world those with power speak a language in which words mean the opposite of what they seem.  So when Israel and America say they want “peace”, that is Orwellian double-speak for “we are gonna bomb the bastards and steal their resources come hell or high water.”

Its funny actually, the greatest knock I have of myself is my utter failure to learn any language other than English… except for Orwellian double-speak that is.  And I realise now that I have been able to understand double-speak for quite some time now.  Like for instance, when I was in America on 9-11 and everybody was ready to kick some “terrorist butt!” and fight the “War on terror”, I knew plain as day that the actual plan was to carry out yet another war of terror and kill a whole bunch more innocent people.  Sadly most of my fellow Americans could not understand double-speak, or I am sure they would have thought otherwise of the plan.

And so here I am, accused and/or suspected of being a terrorist, you just gotta know the language, what they are actually saying is that I am a man with a proven record of humanitarian causes based on truth, justice and the desire for peace.  Israel and America are giving me a great compliment!

For clarity’s sake, “terrorist” translates to humanitarian and/or freedom fighter in double speak.

Now I’m no Nelson Mandela but he was paid the same compliment back when he was a “terrorist” convicted by another Orwellian agent, Apartheid South Africa.  Who knows, maybe I will likewise be rewarded with imprisonment because I refuse to abandon the lawful right of self-defence?

This is a long-standing language really, back in the day of colonial Britain the “intellectuals” and “leaders” of that era also knew the “terrorists”, today we know them as the Founding Fathers of America.

For clarities sake, “leader” translates to tyrant/traitor, “intellectual” means indoctrinated minion.

And so the Orwellian language remains as it was.

I made my last trip to the States through Canada thinking my travels would be smoother through the north, but the Israeli and Canadian governments are very cozy indeed, so that was a miscalculation.  My Canadian welcome included two days of “detention” in a Canadian jail before I was released without charge.  Welcome to Canada, where I guess they are not able to understand double-speak and apparently thought I was a real terrorist; easy mistake to make when you don’t know the language.

For clarities sake, “detention” without charge translates to, you have no human rights.

Eventually I made it south to the “Land of the Free”, while in Hawaii visiting my mother I had a Special Agent of the FBI come to visit me; and so I we chatted for about two hours.  He seemed a nice enough chap, but I made clear his boss (FBI Director Robert Mueller) was a traitor with inside knowledge of 9-11.  I guess that was enough to get me firmly on the “terror watch-list”, checking in and flying became quite silly after that, but the escorts throughout the airport made me feel real secure in the homeland.

And as if I did not already know, my friends within the airline industry told me that I am most definitely “ON THE LIST!”  If you want to know what it feels like to be Jihad Hussein with a massive beard and thick Arabic accent travelling from Mecca to the United States, just come on a trip with me, it is pretty much the same.  Actually, it isn’t really; if I were Arab I would have long since found my way into the torture chambers of the state terrorists.

And so I return to America in the next 36 hours, planning on meeting some of the American citizens with functioning brains and hearts that do more than pump blood.  There are thankfully more and more such people in the US, and beyond, and it is always great to connect with such people.  I will be mostly in the Northwest; Washington, Oregon and California, with a planned visit to Kansas as well.  We’ll see if expanding the visit to other places becomes possible, but maybe the good people at Homeland Security have other plans?  I suspect they may feel the need to protect the homeland from the likes of me.  We shall see.

So if I am sitting in a jail cell or worse in just over a day, please do not think of me alone, think of the unknown amounts of innocent people who rot in jails and dungeons, often tortured, at the behest of the embarrassing, disgusting, criminal US government.  And then thank Barack Obama the saviour who ain’t helping them one bit.  Nope, Guantanamo Bay and other torture chambers remain.

Now that is change you cannot bloody believe in.

Always great to return home!

On January 7, 2004, O'Keefe burned his US passport in protest of "American Imperialism" and called for US troops to immediately withdrawal from Iraq. He replaced his US passport with a World Citizen Passport, proclaiming “ultimate allegiance to my entire human family and to planet Earth." He is a former U.S. Marine who served in the 1991 Gulf War and subsequently spoke out about the use of depleted uranium as a "crime against humanity" and the US military using soldiers as "human guinea pigs" (with experimental drugs that were directly linked to Gulf War syndrome). He is also a social entrepreneur utilising direct action marine conservation in which he pioneered endangered Green Sea Turtle rescues in Hawaii. But he is more widely known for leading the Human Shield Action to Iraq (2003) and as a survivor of the Israeli attack on the MV Mavi Marmara (2010) in which he participated in "defending the ship" and "disarming two Israeli Commandos".

  1. As a “canadian” second and a Quebecer first, I’m sorry our dear leader Harper and his gang treated you this way. Our speach rights are being infringed upon because of pressure from the jewish lobby in canada and there is not much we seem to be able to do about it. Harper is so enamored with the lobby that he bends as far as he can to please, going as far as being blind to massacres of civilians by the IDF. The canadian sense of justice has evaporated with this neocon government that acts more and more like a dictatorship and less and less in line with what were canadian values.
    Hope everything goes well for you in the US.

    1. Michael,
      Okay, I know your heart’s in the right place, but WHY do you say, “As a ‘canadian’ second and a Quebecer first…”? How are you any better than any other smug and xenophobic patriot when you subscribe to such language? NEWS ALERT to ALL WHO CARE: Nobody on this planet, EVER, has been, is, or ever will be a ‘Canadian’, or ‘American’ or ‘British’, or ‘Israeli’ or any other such Proper pronoun titles that refer to abstractions imposed from the outside to hijack your sovereign, God-given identity! It is all your minds, and you ALLOWED it to be put there.

      You are H-U-M-A-N first, last, and everything in between! Your duty is to all life, your love and responsibility is to all creation and all peoples, NOT Quebeckers first! When you get to that level of consciousness, then you will be able to join an EFFECTIVE fight against the dictatorship of savagery that threatens not only this country but all humanity. First, you must conquer every ounce of savagery in your own person. Don’t take it personally, I’m not calling you a savage. Just pointing out a common blind spot, so common it’s common beyond hope I’m afraid.
