in response to reader comment: my responses

Submitted by a Filipino liberal (Philippines), Feb 13, 2006 at 04:17

And after all that, I'm still not going to change my opinion.
It's true you raised some good points, but nothing that I don't have a counter-argument for.

When I first typed the article, I knew that you would mention Ms Rice and Mr. Powell in your counter-argument - those two are always mentioned by conservatives as justifications to show that "conservatives are not racist". Always the two of them. Because you don't have anyone else, do you? And here's my answer. The idea came from a Mexican called danielacova, who noted that Rice was like "a white man inhabiting a black woman's body". She also noted that "what's sad is how many blacks and other minorities think that the best way out of the system of racism is to become part of the very system that oppresses them" There. That's why you like Rice and Powell now. You like blacks when they support you, but when they don't? That's when you dislike them.
And even if the US weren't racist, I'd still find many other reasons to continue criticizing them. You don't have to worry about me stopping.

And as for my "pure unadulterated garbage" of accusing the US of wanting to control the world, my response is this: Have you ever heard of "indirect control"? Like when you have a government that's supposedly independent, but whose leader is in fact bankrolled by the US, as Mobutu Sese Seko's in Zaire was? Not sll control is through conquest. If you're as smart as you think you are, then you should know that. Don't act so sarcastic and all-knowing unless yuo really do know everything.

And lastly, fool, as for what you have said that the US "liberated" the Philippines from Japan in WW II at the cost of thousands of American lives, you make it sound like Filipinos played no part at all. An American general at the time said that the Filipino guerrilla resistance "undoubtedly saved thousands of American lives".

And the US liberated us, yes, mostly thanks to McArthur, but they liberated us into a new condition of being heavily influenced by the US in all matters. I don't need to "express my gratitude". Come on, stop playing dumb. Both of us know that the US liberated us for their own self-interest (the Philippines was a valuable American colony)

Also fool, I'm not trying to show how important I am. I'm not arrogant, like you Western conservatives, in fact arrogance is one of the things I hate the most, which explains why I dislike cons so much. Besides, aren't you the ones trying to show your own importance by showing "how America saved the rest of the world?"

I know you're not going to read this, but I'll type it anyway.
