Desmond Tutu, the South African Bishop, is complaining about President Obama sending drones to other countries to kill its citizens. And Desmond Tutu questions the President on why the president feels it’s okay to do this to people in other countries, but not to Americans. He questions why those lives that are not American are worth less than those who are Americans.
Well, I would love to speak with Desmond Tutu and let him know that it is not only people in other places that are victims of the U.S. government, but a lot of Americans are also victims of the President’s program.
I’d tell him that we are Americans who became targets of the government and that we’ve committed no crimes, but the U.S. government treats us like criminals. And only does it treat us like criminals, but it sends criminals after us. Criminals who have no scruples and will do what the U.S. government tells them to do for money. Criminals who are given carte blanche to mistreat us.
I’d tell Desmond Tutu that we are Americans the government considers not worthy of protecting, or not deserving of constitutional rights.
I’d tell Desmond Tutu that we need someone like him to speak up for us Americans targets who no one will listen to and who no one cares about.
So, if Desmond Tutu reads this: Please Bishop Tutu, listen to me. I am a victim of government harassment, along with millions of other Americans who the American government is mistreating. We have no voice in America. No one will listen to our plead for help. Please use your voice and power to speak up for us. As you use your voice to speak up for all the powerless people of the world, please use your voice to speak up for all the Americans the government quietly tortures. We are all being slowly tortured to death.
The other people of other nations are not the only ones being tortured, we Americans are also.
Please, Desmond Tutu, help us Americans. Speak up in our name. We know you have the power to get people to listen to you.
If anyone out there reads this and knows Bishop Desmond Tutu, please get this message to him. Thank you.
