Keeping Africans in chains while herding Westerners into the same prison
Bono's latest efforts to dodge taxes and invest in the very capitalist
franchises he supposedly rallies against prove that he is one of the leading
characters in a puppet show that, far from helping emaciated kids in Ethiopia,
serves only to keep the third world in chains while herding Westerners into
the same debtor slavery prison.
It's commonly acknowledged that of the estimated $500 billion that
has been poured into Africa over the last 40 years, the majority has gone no
further than ruling dictators who keep the money and use it to bankroll their
opulent lifestyles while their disease ridden subjects starve to death and are
infected with AIDS from poisoned vaccines generously donated to them by billionaire
philanthropists who advocate mass
population reduction and genocide.
The only way to truly elevate third world is to give them the tools to build
the infrastructure necessary for modernization.
But the World Bank/IMF/Globalist doctrine is not about improving the status
of third world countries, its about bleeding westerners dry in the name of fighting
poverty and AIDS and then siphoning off the profits to their own dirty cronies.
Bono is a figurehead for this policy and was even in contention for the World
Bank crown before losing out to arch Neo-Fascist Wolfowitz..
World Bank and IMF
documents betraying a focused agenda to deliberately foment economic turmoil,
riots, and then enforced bondage to eternal debt in countries like Argentina
have been leaked.
The plan is not to elevate the third world but to lower the living standards
of Americans by guilt-tripping them into financial sacrifice in the name of
humanitarian disasters created by the globalists themselves, in addition to
a global tax at the fuel pump mandated by the imaginary specter of global warming.
Meanwhile, Bono shifts
his assets to offshore tax havens to avoid paying the very taxes that he
campaigns for - this is he height of hypocrisy and exposes the beast that the
U2 singer fronts for.
No doubt Bono would also embrace the virtues of the 'global warming' orthodoxy
elite who zoom from each scripted press conference in their air-conditioned
luxury jets while preaching that Americans must take their SUV's to the knacker's
Notable therefore it is that Bono himself once ordered
his favorite hat to be flown first class via British Airways to Italy at
a cost of $1700.
The Wall Street Journal listed ten
ways Bono could have put the money towards relief for the poor instead of
ensuring he achieved just the right balance of urban cool for the gig that night.
Bono has always fitted the mold of the elitist yuppie icon, an image that is
perfectly encapsulated in Bret Easton Ellis' Novel American Psycho, a work set
in the 1980s but written a decade later, that typifies the seedy underbelly
of American yuppie culture.
The Chapter Title is "Concert". The Narrator, Patrick Bateman, is
a designer-label-wearing, drug-taking, Wall Street broker, who happens to torture
and kill women in his spare time. The names of the other characters are not
important. They go to a U2 concert almost by default and end up in the front
row. There he feels a "connection" with Bono - the connection is of
course a hideous, shallow and superficial yuppie connection that reveals more
about Bono and his place in culture than it does about Bateman, who we already
know is a horrid human being.
The much vaunted Live 8 and 'Make Poverty History' campaigns last year, organized
in part by Bono, were again co-opted by controlling corporate interests and
did little if nothing to help worldwide suffering.
Smaller charities were banned
from participating and after the event it emerged that establishment charities
like American Red Cross, World Vision and Oxfam had secretly met and divvied
up a huge slice of the booty between themselves and kept it - as happened after
the OKC bombing and September 11.
Veteran journalist Jon
Pilger summed it up better than I ever could during last year's G8 meeting
"Africa's imperial plunder and tragedy have been turned into a circus
for the benefit of the so-called G8 leaders due in Scotland next month and those
of us willing to be distracted by the barkers of the circus: the establishment
media and their 'celebrities.' The illusion of an anti-establishment crusade
led by pop stars—a cultivated, controlling image of rebellion—serves
to dilute a great political movement of anger. In summit after summit, not one
significant 'promise' of the G8 has been kept, and the 'victory for millions'
is no different. It is a fraud—actually a setback to reducing poverty
in Africa. Entirely conditional on vicious, discredited economic programmes
imposed by the World Bank and the IMF, the 'package' will ensure that the 'chosen'
countries slip deeper into poverty."

In his many meetings with the British Prime Minister, Bono has failed to mention
the fact that Blair's £15 million ID database system, used to monitor and
control the lives of the British public with no discernable benefit to anyone
but government snoops and mega corporations, would cover the cost of anti-retroviral
drugs in Africa for the next three years.
Bono and Blair were playing bosom buddies for the cameras once again last weekend
as they hob-knobbed with Rupert Murdoch, while informed
speculation postulated a visit to the creme de la creme of old boy networks,
Whilst Bono hangs around doing business with his elite pals then occasionally
sounding off at them for the media, rock stars such as Thom Yorke of Radiohead
take a more modest approach at illuminating their wrong doings.
When Yorke's dissenting voice became more prominently public last year he declined
an invitation to meet with Tony Blair because he knew it would be spun into
a PR device by Blair's cronies.
"I came out of that whole period just thinking, I don't want to get involved
directly, it's poison. I'll just shout my mouth off from the sidelines. It's
a nasty business. It's up to people with pure integrity who know what they're
talking about," said Yorke.
Whilst Yorke continues
to use his rock status to berate Blair over his continued elitist and ignorant
policies, Bono is using his to hob nob around with Blair in San Francisco on
a personal business trip paid for by British taxes, a system that Bono clearly
believes he is too good for.
