One-gun salute to Washington, DC?


by  Kevin Barrett, Veterans Today Editor


A woman in California isn’t happy with her local authorities. So she’s putting up a giant middle finger statue in her front yard.

This got me to thinking. What have those local authorities got that Washington, DC hasn’t got?

It’s springtime. The birds are chirping. The bunnies are humping, I mean, hopping. Why stay indoors on your computer, flinging verbal venom at the psychopathic serial killers in our nation’s crapital, when you could be outside on the lawn, soaking up some sun aiming a giant middle finger statue at them?

Image a nation with a couple of hundred million front lawns each featuring a bird-flipping colossus giving the digitus impudicus to D.C. Now THAT is the kind of country I wouldn’t mind living in!

The Founding Fathers would be proud. I understand that they have given up rolling over in their graves; now their worm-nibbled skeletons are slowly raising their right arms and extending their middle finger bones.

Muslims achieve a feeling of togetherness by all turning to face in the same direction when they pray – toward the kaaba in Mecca. So why shouldn’t Americans come together in our shared loathing of the bastards in DC, by building a few hundred million giant middle finger statues all pointing thitherward?

Objections, naturally, will be raised. Some will say: What about the people who live in Washington, DC? Not all of them are AIPAC-addled congress-critters, Constitution-butchering judges and justices, White House appendages, Pentagon war criminals, or other illuminati arch-villains. In what direction will the handful of nice, ordinary people in DC point THEIR giant middle finger statues?

If they flip their giant concrete birds at the White House, then they’re ignoring Congress, the Supreme Court, the CIA, and a lot of other creeps. Ditto if they choose any of the other targets.

What America needs is an omphalos – a national navel toward which all Americans, including those in DC, could raise their middle fingers skyward.

If the kaaba is the omphalos of Islam, symbolizing the God toward which all monotheists turn, perhaps the George Washington monument could serve as the omphalos of the post-9/11 police state usurping what used to be America.

True, most people see the Washington Monument as a giant phallus, not a giant middle finger. But since the extended middle finger is itself a sort of symbolic phallus delivering the “up yours” message, it seems to me that DC’s great stone obelisk, with a few minor modifications, could become the national symbol of illegitimate authority toward which all Americans unite in flipping off a big one-gun salute.

I proposed this idea at my local town hall meeting yesterday and got a very enthusiastic response:


The patron saint of our new national salute will be – who else – the late, great Johnny Cash.

But before implementing this concept, and starting a national movement to build middle-finger statues on everyone’s front lawns, I figured I had better ask permission from the one government that deserves to get flipped off even more than America’s does. So I called up Netanyahu, who quickly put the kibosh on my idea.

“I don’t care what Dan Brown and his freemason friends say – the one eternal and undivided capital of the New World Order is ISRAEL not Washington DC!” Bibi screamed. “The world must make its undying salute of sacramental hatred in OUR direction or we’ll nuke all the capitals of Europe!”

So Bibi and I are now working on a plan to place a giant quenelle statue in the middle of Rothschild Plaza in Tel Aviv.

The "Holy Quenelle" statue will be the focus of worship of the NWO's one-world religion.

  1. Any chance we could “frame” your new logo with a six-pointed dual-triangle “star” and make some lapel pins, bumper stickers, sunglasses and other fashion accessories? Hell, I’d even put one in my garage, and “I ain’t even got a garage, you can call home and ask my wife.”

  2. Laughter is indeed the best medicine Dr Barrett

    and music is the universal language of Soul.

    Thank you.

  3. Effin Great Editorial!!! Best Editorial I have seen in years, maybe EVER!!!!!
    Please find someone to make those things and offer them for sale on the VT site.
    I want one. Should come with instructions on the proper direction to point.
    Someone gets me. Read my mind and heart. Kevin Barrett I am now a fan.

  4. It looks like a smaller version of the controversial statue Netanyahu donated to the Freedom Tower lobby in NYC, there’s an array of interpretations, oddly Netanyahu has the statue insured for six billion in case of a terrorist attack.

    Rumor has it Netanyahu has just hired Justin Casquejo as a special consultant.

  5. Such a magnificent job our elected officials are doing. After all the years of war, bogus or not, human struggle and sacrifice, singing the national anthem, praising God, studying history, paying for education, building structures, establishing highways, soaking We the People with financial burdens beyond necessities we now resort to this behavior as this. We the People have all the power in the world to correct the situation but we are simply ignored. Our efforts are scolded like one does a puppy, causing it to cower away. The only fight we know is weaponry. Someone steps up, speaks out, and we condemn him as we’ve done many citizens before trying to expose the anti-American traitors working within. To object to the status quo is not a sin, but a blessing. We need to listen, trust, digest and act. We don’t need to condemn them for their efforts. In retrospect, it has been proven they were telling us the truth on a majority of issues. Their lies, hoaxes, misdirections, premediations, pre-emptions, misguidance, smoke and mirrors, slight of hand card trickery, flim-flam, shell games, we have swallowed it all hook line a sinker, and although they deserve the symbol stuck where the sun doesn’t shine, we are dipping to an all time low, and have no one to blame but ourselves. We have become no better than they. Good article. Nice idea.

    • Perhaps an oldie but a goodie is the way to go – The Gadsden Flag
      “Over the years the Gadsden flag has become more and more associated with rebellion and totally disassociated with pride in one’s government.”

      Yeah – that pretty much says it all.


      An American timber rattlesnake, not a generic serpent – “the Rattle-Snake is found in no other quarter of the world besides America.”

      “- in 1774 Paul Revere added it to the masthead of The Massachusetts Spy and showed the snake fighting a British dragon.”

      “Tradition holds that in May 1775, when the citizens of Westmoreland gathered at the Hannastown Tavern and issued their own Declaration of Independence, they tore down the British flag that was flying there and made some modifications. The original flag had an open red field with the British ensign in the upper corner. They painted a coiled rattlesnake and its “Don’t Tread on Me” warning onto the center, as if ready to strike at the Union Jack. This flag still survives. It’s at the Fort Pitt Museum in Pittsburgh.”

      We’re still fighting that dragon> The City of London-The Vatican-Washington, D.C.
      “Anyone visiting London for the first time and walking along the Thames Embankment may be surprised to come across an original Egyptian obelisk.”
      “At least eight obelisks created in antiquity by the Egyptians were taken from Egypt after the Roman conquest and brought to Rome. cont-

    • Pope Sixtus V – the Obelisk Pope who moved the St Peter’s Square obelisk to the front of the basilica in the Vatican”
      And we’re all familiar w/ the one in our nation’s capital. Now I ask you, who’s giving the middle finger to whom?!!!

      The Minutemen of Culpeper County, Virginia, chose a flag that looks generally like the Gadsden flag, but also includes the famous words of the man who organized the Virginia militia, Patrick Henry, i.e. “Liberty or Death.”

      And THAT pretty much says it all too.
