Ollie North: Still crazy after all these years

I loathe and detest Ollie North and his ilk. The square-jawed, flinty-eyed, flag-waving, God-fearin’ drug-running perjuring adulterer, who parlayed a few months active service in Vietnam into a lucrative career as a full-time professional American.

Now he’s on again about the perceived loss of American sovereignty due to some vague plan for greater international legal uniformity. Wrapping the flag firmly around his bemedalled chest he intones that “I am not a citizen of the world. We're American citizens. We raised our right hands and took oaths to "support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.”

Straight from the Great Book of Cliches he adds “America's sons and daughters serving in harm's way around the world as soldiers, sailors, airmen, guardsmen and Marines deserve protection from "international tribunals". My old American Heritage Dictionary defines "sovereignty" as "complete independence and self-government."

Well I agree fully on that Ollie, my old gun-running friend, but tell me this, if you’re so all-fired enthused about "complete independence and self-government”, why did you spend most of your miserable life interfering in other countries’ attempts at achieving precisely that? To name but one, Nicaragua?

You’ll remember(and you should remember Ollie , as you took your precious Holy Bible in your muscular hand and perjured youself on it) that you helped arm, by gun-running to the ayatollas in Iran (you know, the people we’re all so het up about now?) and by supplying drugs to the US (you know, the country you pledged to defend?) a murderous ‘army’ which set out to overthrow the democratically elected government of Nicaragua? This resulted in at least 10,000 deaths, the vast majority innocent civilians. What have you got to say about that Ollie?

As for those “America's sons and daughters serving in harm's way around the world as soldiers, sailors, airmen, guardsmen and Marines”, don't you see any contradiction, you secretary-shagging hypocrite, between that and your concern about ‘sovereignty’?

No, you smug, self-righteous shit, your argument is that laws only apply to other countries, the same argument you used to justify your drugs and arms running. If you really believed in sovereignty you’d support the total closing of the estimated 1000+ military bases that the USA has in other countries and let those countries have their sovereignty. But that wouldn’t suit your paymasters in the military and their ‘independent’ think tanks, would it?

And talking of think tanks, let’s look at who Ollie selects out for most praise in the fight against the threat to American sovereignty: None other than the Freedom Alliance, the Center for Security Policy, and The Heritage Foundation. What have these got in common? Well, first they pay Ollie generously for being a professional American and parroting their agenda.

But there’s more. These organisations are primary shills for so-called ‘free trade’, you know the thing that has America’s destiny in hock to the Chinese and the Arabs, that has destroyed the pride of American manufacturing with outsourcing, replacing it with millions of Macjobs, changed the ethnic foundation of the country with unrestricted immigration of cheap labour from the Third World, and the ‘freedom’ from un-American regulation that enabled the banksters to loot the general populace and bankrupt the country in the process.

Yet sadly, huge numbers of Americans will always fawn on a scumbag like North once he, like his mentor Ronald Reagan (see this post), wraps himself in the flag and regurgitates the standard set of religious and conservative platitudes.

Actually, maybe North isn't ‘still crazy after all these years’ – it’s the rest of us.

Bravo Savant. My sentiments exactly. This creep has been living off the patriot game all his life.

Ollie has his faults for sure, but we need the likes of him to repel the Islamic/immigration threat.

Spot on. With the likes of the power nugry and rapacious destruction by the American/zionist power off our backs the world may return to a little sanity and healthiness. Fuck them. This is one of the best posts of the month.

Quartermain said...

Double spot on, thank you for telling the truth about phoney patriots like North & Reagan. It was phoney conservatives like them that paved the way for clinton, obama and their ilk.

Keep telling it like it is.

That is sooooooo true. On the button. And especially so about so many Americans still idealizing those traitors.

You're too hard on Ollie.

This, after all, is his paycheck we're talking about. What makes you think he believes the things he says?

Ollie is just a small cog in the "professional American" industry here. Surely you don't begrudge these folks a livink?

Bollocks, what the UK and Ireland need are more people like Ollie who are prepared to stand up for their country

Ollie is a fucking neo-con which speaks for itself.

You're right about American power being on the wane, however much Ollie bleats.

But you Irish had better start arming yourselves in earnest once those US Marines pack up and go - or d'ye fancy speaking Russian or Chinese? Europe's enjoyed a fat peace dividend from letting America pay the lion's share of defense duties over the past decades. THAT party will soon be over.

Ifor one like your blog for the most part but in the last decade I have noticed that the Irish have taken a hate America stance, I seem to recall the waitresses and const guys in the USA who sent money back to Ireland to support the poor at home who were under the thumb of poverty and the Church in the 50s and 60s. the new set of young Irish in America if you ask where in Ireland they are from will say Dublin and they all seem to be engineers of one sort or another and if they condemm my country to me they will be battered as i have already done so, as for Ollie North you couldnt carry his jock strap, this mAN SERVED IN Nam and was a bonifide hero when you were sneking slugs of wine in the sacristy, Ireland has come into prosperity via the Celtic Tiger and now blames America for its down ward spiral well welcome to the real world you wanted into the EU and noe you got the somolia Willie Man, but best wishes to your future if you have one.

SAVANT said...

anon 18.03 - I'm not anti-american or anti-Israeli for that matter. But it does seem to be the case that if you say ANYTHING negative about either country you're classified as an enemy. Like any country America has its flaws - and boy, does Ireland have flaws, as I constantly show.

(PS - if you have an old jockstrap of Ollie's, send it on. I know there'd be thousands of people - like you - who'd pay big money for it on eBay)

JP, I never bought into the idea that if the US didnt have major bases in Europe we'd all be under the Russians, or even more preposterously, the Chinese. Recently revealed material from the archives in Moscow show that the Commies had no intention of such an invasion. Again, that doesn't mean I like them or dont like America, it's just what happens to be true.

Kind of strange, arguing for a rather narrow meaning of "sovereignty" when also pushing for "free trade," owing vast amounts of money to the Arabs & Chinese, importing just about everything Walmart sells from China & offsourcing so many jobs to India, stationing troops in just about every country around the world, being dependent upon foreign oil & declaring Canadian fresh water as a "strategic resource," etc. It even seems that the US started importing more food than it exports a few years back.

I think the only way Ollie could get this kind of "sovereignty" would be by practicing the kind of autarchy the Albanians tried with such obvious success under Hoxne...

Ollie North isnt our real enemy. In his own way he's trying to do what's best for us.

Anonymous said...

No, in his own way he's latched onto a nice little earner by recycling platitudes that help keep Americans' eyes of the ball - while the country is being ruined around us.

Big Bill said...

Yeah, you are right, we Evil White Racist Imperialist Hypocrite Americans deserve to die and submit to whatever punishments the World International Criminal Court doles out.

But you know what? You Evil White Racist Irish Nationalist Hypocrites who swamped america with masses of Irish refugee drunks 150 years but NOW resist immigration by decent loving Nigerians and Gypsies ALSO deserve to die and be replaced by better races.

Whew! Now that we have our leftist namecalling out of our system, what say we stop trying to kill each other off by ramming white guilt down each other's throats?

I will support you in your quest for Irish rule and autonomy, and you support mine, OK?

And neither one of us has to surrender sovereignty to the UN, the EU, the ICC or the NGOs based on our Evil White Racism and Hypocrisy, OK?

SAVANT said...

Big Bill - why do you and so many others misconstrue what I'm saying?

My point is Ollie North is a shill for all those who are really destroying America. And I find all this bullship about flags and bibles sickening when it's just a cover up for the real agenda. This international legal systm is just a prop for this agenda.

But yes, I make no aplogies for saying that America should get the hell out of all thise countries around the world. The only ones to benefit are the military/industrial complex, who in fact are bleeding the 'real' America dry.

Anonymous said...

You're obviously better informed than me on these things Savant. I saw North on his fox news show and he came across as a good guy but you make some interesting points I didn't know about. I can understand why Big Bill is pissed. The Americans have done a hell of a lot for our country. I know you don't care for fox news. They only go so far. I saw Glen Beck at the San Antonio tea party and he didn't mention that all those folks were white in a city that I understand has a Mex majority. But if he had mentioned that I suppose he would have been sacked. Or sotomayor would have been up his white ass.

SAVANT said...

anon 1.01. Yes, North does come across as a 'good guy' - and thats the reason he's been co-opted by the bad guys. Much as with Ronald Reagan. They see a medium that'll gell with the sheeple, then feed him their agenda.

anon 00.32. Well, I was in Boston during the early seventies and I can assure you I hightailed it out. It's not that me and the other 'Seamus's' were cowards (I was!) or that we wouldnt fight for the US of A.

It's that we didn't want to be over in some goddam war of choice, blowing the shit out of people that never did anything to us (or to any American) and risking them blowing the shit out of us in return.

Vast numbers of Americans took the same view, by the way. Sensible people.

Reading this post only confirms what I've half-believed for a long time. We're all just puppets, and the puppet masters must crack up laughing at how we fall for the'patriot game' as espoused by the likes of Ollie North.

However, I believe that he is also being duped, being wound up and sent out to befuddle natural patriots here while his controllers snigger in the background.

Exegesis said...

The problem with Oliver North is that he has a really cool name. I think many people like him simply for his name and clean-cut looks.

Yes, it's as shallow as that.

Anonymous said...

Exegesis - yes, I think you're basically right. But don't overlook the fact of people's capacity to rationalize their own actions. Amazingly powerful!

an American said...

This is a pretty old post, but I just wanted to say that I agree with you on this Savant. To his great credit, Lawrence Auster makes mincemeat of these fauxcons all the time over at his blog, View From the Right.

I would ask for a little patience on behalf of my fellow Anglos, though, Savant. We seem to be a little short on friends (since the 60's) and we're pretty gullible anyway. That all adds up to a fat target for con-artists, shams and plain old politicians.

SAVANT said...

Thanks 'American' - I fully agree. You're sure entitled to patience, but do you have time? I dont think so. You'll be in a minority in no time.
