A comment at Unz Review,

#300 in response to my Ann Arbor Postcard:

Dr. Taylor

It is truly embarrassing to read this oriental’s screeds against the people and structures that gave him any worth. He would be hunting dogs in the streets if not for them!”People” like Linh are no less than a tumor on society. They use and use, all to their benefit while plotting to destroy the very bodies that sustain them. I hope against hope that one day this glorious nation will elect a leader who isn’t afraid to cut these malignant actors out of our country. I would volunteer!

Linh, you must be doing something right to incite that much hate. I used to think I was doing something wrong if everybody liked me.

I just now (yeah, 2:36AM) finished “A Trenton Education” in ‘Postcards from the end of America’. Linh’s commentary and dialogue in ‘Postcards’, accurately describe ‘this glorious nation’. Of specific interest at this instant is Linh’s face off with our protectors in “A Trenton Education”. Here are some excerpts:

“I took my photos in full view of the recruiting office’s plate glass windows, with who knows how many eyes behind them, so within seconds, a uniformed soldier appeared to say that that was not allowed, so I smiled, apologized, then walked away. He also smiled…“

“…already past the back of this building two more soldiers came running out with one asking me to stop, which I did… a second soldier then demanded I delete my photos of the recruiting office … By this time, a third older soldier had appeared, so four well-trained gung-ho combatants had so far been dispatched to handle one dumbass middle-aged retard with his beat-up, often repaired camera with a dusty lens and missing eyepiece.”

“Faced with this farcical situation, I laughed, shook my head and told the soldiers, ‘This is ridiculous’… That’s when they gave me the predictable line about the heightened alert against the threat of terrorism.”

“Back and forth we went, with a soldier telling me that, ‘it is illegal to take photos of a federal building,’ which is not correct…”

“When the pissed one snapped, “I’m defending our country,” I responded, “You’re not defending anything! You’ve been standing out here harassing me!”

Read ‘Postcards’. An entertaining, but sobering, discussion of the state of affairs in ‘this glorious nation’, it contextualizes the 47% adult functional illiteracy rate in Detroit.

Freuidian defense mechanism projects the very blind shame to LD, who merely gives a simple voice in their own words to those shunned and deemed irrelevant by glossy msm/hollywood worlds (except for occassional dancing with stars working class breakthroughs)

Its as if the angry commenter is furious to see the wizard of oz behind the curtain....the hatred for the messenger with no rational argument other than race hatred barely disguises the hatred of the undeniable truths in the message!

Meanwhioe, tpp shunned corporations will be planting their gmos across vietnam this year. no doubt!, feeding the investment fund portfololios of the commenter lol!

LD, Gore Vidal wouod be proud! Keep u the good work!
