Today as a nation we face the greatest threats to democracy and
than at anytime in the past, the enemy is not from abroad but the enemy
is from within. They are the extremist and odious members of what
for conservatives in today's politics. They have attacked the very
of our government and the institutions that have made it great. We have
yielded far too much ground in the 1980's our future freedoms depend
stopping them now, we
must fight now.
I wrote those first two paragraphs when the White Rose first
appeared on the internet over seven years ago. Today our cherished
freedoms have been severely restricted and curtailed by the
illegitimate regime of George Bush. As a nation we now stand on the
brink of full-blown fascism. The Fourth Reich is rising like a giant
Phoenix from the ashes of 9-11. Reports of terrible atrocities and war
crimes committed by our armies in Afghanistan and Iraq have already
surfaced. Who will survive to bare witness if the Bush regime is not
removed by the upcoming election?
May15/1969 speaking to a news conference about clearing the protesters from the University of Califorina Campus, Gov. Ronald Reagan blurted.
"If its a blood bath, then let it be now."
May 3/1970 Republican Gov. of Ohio James Rhodes blurted.
"We're going to use every weapon possible to eradicate the problem."
"Nothing is so unworthy of a civilized nation as allowing itself to be governed without opposition by an irresponsible clique that has yielded to base instinct. Who among us has any conception of the dimensions of shame that will befall us and our children when one day the veil has fallen from our eyes and the most horrible of crimes - crimes that infinitely out-distance every human measure - reach the light of day?"

As Americans we smugly say that Nazism could never arise here that somehow we are better. Yet since, WWII our foreign policy has been one of overthrowing democratically elected moderate and reform minded governments to install fascist type dictators that support corporate America. We did in Vietnam, Guatemala, Chile, Argentina, Brazil, Iran, East Timor and in every corner of the globe. How many more nuns, priests and poor peasant farmers murdered at the direction of the CIA are we going to tolerate? What evils lurk behind Iran/Contra/Cocaine? What horrors were hidden behind the October Surprise? But even more ominous is the domestic terror at the hands of law enforcement agencies. We sit idly by and watch as police beat Rodney King and others. We sit listening to the evening news of reports of police shooting a semi-conscious woman 12 times. We sit and watch as police rub pepper mace into the eyes of peaceful protestors. The problem is we are a nation of bleating sheep, we just sit. That's the same thing they did in Germany before the Nazis seized power, they just sat there. And yes we just sat there as they shot and killed college students. We need to demand that these perpetrators of civil injustices face trial. We need to demand our freedoms rather than sit by while the Republicans in congress seek to limit our free speech by passing a flag burning amendment, our right to sue corporations for damages, our religious freedom by establishing a defacto state religion and the right of every woman to control over her own body. Its time to rise up against right wing tyranny and walk upright like free men again, its time to take action now before we end up in prison or in the streets homeless, victims of a corporate America gone mad.
Tin soldiers and Nixon coming
We're finally on our own
This summer I hear the drumming
Four dead in Ohio
Gotta get down to it soldiers are cutting us down
Should have been done long ago
What if you knew her and found her dead on the ground
How can you run when you know
Remember COINTELPRO? It lives on.

The White Rose urges you to fly your own flag upside down in the universal symbol of distress until we once again hold free elections and have a president that has been elected by the people and not appointed by corrupt political hacks pretending to be justices. Demand that congress impeach this blight on freedom along with the impeachment of the corrupt Supreme Court Justices that appointed this dimwit.

"The most effectual means of preventing tyranny is to illuminate,
far as practicable, the minds of the people at large, and more
to give them knowledge of those facts, which history exibiteth, that
thereby of the experience of other ages and countries, they may be able
to know ambition under all its shapes, and prompt to exert their
powers to defeat its purposes." Thomas Jefferson
