Hate the Scumbag Fascist GI Mercenary Poem

Hate the Scumbag Fascist GI Mercenary Poem

---John Paul Cupp

I. Peaceniks For Fascist Opportunism

You say "No to war, but I support the troops".
So what, if its the neighbor's kids,
or you say I'm violent and rude?
The real question is, on what side are you?

Anti-Imperialists support the fedayeen,
and the rights of nations to determine
their own course and destiny.

GI, I support whoever,whenever, and however when they kill you.
I think its funny when they dump eggs and cuss at you, too.

The only way you'll learn is from a gun shot wound,
or seeing your brother's face when he's blown in two.
They won't admit it over here,
but they know its true.

II. An Ode to Useless Garbage

Worthless Pieces of Trash.
Poverty Pimp Recruiters.
Even stringing them up,
isn't too rash.

That said,
so what if your "working class"?
I don't give a rat's ass
about your tired excuse
of a poverty draft.

All you mercenaries punks,
are just in it for college and for cash.
Everyday, I read the newspaper,
so I can smile about a new attack,
and I don't want to hear it
when you all get smashed.

From the Commander-in-Chief,
to the lowly Private,
death to Imperialism!
Independence forces are sick of it.
Hear that, valid military target?

From the Pentagon crime,
to the first guy
on an occupation front line,
you are the guns against resistance.
Now its time to die.
Good Bye!

III. Bleeding Heart Pathology of a Pig

The pig against the contradiction
that keeps his existence in place;
all of a sudden he feels your pain.
Objectively, his statues
is still, just the same.
Bush is to blame,
but cover your ears, mama,
for Iraq's victory,
your son needs a bullet in his brain.

You don't like to hear this?
Don't go!
You don't like to hear this"
Then resist.

When you support liberation,
it means supporting attacks on US troops.
They are, after all, hired guns of imperialism goons.

Otherwise, your just another CHUMP American whining
"Why do they hate us?".
Good, because I hate you, too!
The world hates you.

Were going to fight you,
until your pride is bruised.
Its time for beat down,
black and blue,
a tooth for a tooth,
and an eye for an eye,
until your chauvinism is ready to die.

The only reason to like little GI Joe,
whether he's white, brown, black, pink, or neon green,
is because its really great to see
when he's lit on fire and dosed with gasoline.

After he's been properly kicked and dragged.
The Army wastes a body bag.

Mail him back, wrapped in plastic.
Their must be no tears,
for a mother's worst fears,
when they drape the flag,
and lower the casket.

When fighting fascism-in-power,
BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY is never too drastic.

J.P.C. = Just another Person that's Clueless 13.Jul.2004 00:40

...Clueless about the fact that american soldiers are victims of the global corporate capitalist machine that they have been duped into serving to the same extent as the Iraqi PEOPLE that they are currently helping to "liberate" from Saddam Hussein's despotic regime, which, as you will recall, came into power with the overt backing of this same elite consortium (that's spelled C.I.A. - operations branch of the global financiers that pull the strings on puppets everywhere).
Many PEOPLE join the military with a desire to serve a country that they have been taught since before preschool represents the Shining Beacon of Freedom, Truth, and Boundless Opportunity through which Humankind will achieve its Highest Potential. These PEOPLE are the grease on the cogs of the machine; the fuel of the machine is Joe and Jane Average Taxpayer- well over 100 million people who regularly pay into the system that subjugates OUR World for the profit of an elite few that oversee the plundering of our future generations' legacy in order to satiate their sick delusions of power and priveledge.
I grant that there are those in the military who are psychopaths who have no other venue in life but to find an outlet for their desires to dominate and subjugate others (met some of those! (PEOPLE)). The survivors go on to become cops and prison guards here in the Land of the Free. Yes, there are also those who join the military in order to further their own agendas for increasing their educational and employment opportunities (why should it be thus?), and there are those who simply wish to take advantage of any means that they can escape the rathole in which they grew up (here in the Land of Opportunity). There are also many PEOPLE who are intelligent, informed, and tragically indoctrinated into the belief that The American Way is the way of Truth, Justice, and Freedom, and they will Fight to the Last (hu)Man to defend this ideal.
Hey, J.P.C. - Did You Know... that many of the soldiers (PEOPLE) caught in this meatgrinder realize now that they have been played as pawns in an ill-conceived, losing game, but lack any means to opt out? Many others (also PEOPLE) continue daily to put one foot in front of the other with the belief that something good will eventually emerge from the chaos and senseless death and destruction that is the hallmark of this Cradle of "Civilization". And there are those (PEOPLE) who believe that, in spite of all of the subterfuge, misdirection, and downright seditious exhaltations from the "Liberal Media" against our involvement in Iraq, etc., etc., (insert your favorite resource-rich country here), america is exporting Democracy and Equality to these poor, wretched countries, in order to help their PEOPLE.
So, J.P.C., are you advocating that all of these PEOPLE should die - cease to exist - be wiped from the Universe (hah!)? Should all of the BAD PEOPLE be killed off by the GOOD PEOPLE? Who will be left after this happens - YOU? OK, so maybe you'll spare one or two or ten impressionable young chickies in order to populate the New World with Right-Thinking PEOPLE. I do hope that the children will behave themselves :-)
Oh, and here's a cool song...

Universal Soldier Lyrics
by Donovan

He's five foot-two, and he's six feet-four,
He fights with missiles and with spears.
He's all of thirty-one, and he's only seventeen,
Been a soldier for a thousand years.

He'a a Catholic, a Hindu, an Atheist, a Jain,
A Buddhist and a Baptist and a Jew.
And he knows he shouldn't kill,
And he knows he always will,
Kill you for me my friend and me for you.

And he's fighting for Canada,
He's fighting for France,
He's fighting for the USA,
And he's fighting for the Russians,
And he's fighting for Japan,
And he thinks we'll put an end to war this way.

And he's fighting for Democracy,
He's fighting for the Reds,
He says it's for the peace of all.
He's the one who must decide,
Who's to live and who's to die,
And he never sees the writing on the wall.

But without him,
How would Hitler have condemned him at Dachau?
Without him Caesar would have stood alone,
He's the one who gives his body
As a weapon of the war,
And without him all this killing can't go on.

He's the Universal Soldier and he really is to blame,
His orders come from far away no more,
They come from here and there and you and me,
And brothers can't you see,
This is not the way we put the end to war.

Chords:- F,G7,C,Am Dm,Em

I Support Our Troops 13.Jul.2004 11:24


I support our troops
when they frag their officers

Think that's insanity?

jail house rapists with your phallic guns
and DU sperm

You died IN VANITY.

Calling this poetry is like calling Kim Il Sung a Marxist 13.Jul.2004 23:01

Not a medic

Buffy Saint-Marie wrote "Universal Soldier", not that hippie dude.
