BRUTALITY TOWARD VETERANS

Some Americans may know of legislation to strip Veterans returning from military service of their firearms as part of a long-term tendency to negate second amendment rights. This tendency distinguishes modern dictatorial regimes that prefer servants and subjects to citizens, that dislike accountability and, perhaps worst, intend to do things to citizens that would occasion ordinary decent people to seek justice as supported by the Second Amendment.
The following real life horror story relates to these matters. It was brought to my attention by a post from the “5301 Club.”
The members of this club are working for America’s survival and renewal with a focus on Veteran – related issues that affect the structure of our society and all our lives. Their name is taken from Federal law, USC, Title 38, 5301(a) (1) that protects the lives of Vets by reserving for them alone compensation they earned by sacrifice of their health during service. These payments are “exempt from taxation…from the claim of creditors, and shall not be liable to attachment, levy or seizure by or under any legal or equitable process whatever, either before or after receipt by the beneficiary.”
That would seem sufficiently explicit to insure that the Veteran who paid with part of their health or mobility would receive this compensation and that it would “NOT be liable to attachment, levy or seizure under any legal process whatever.” But we live in “interesting times,” these post-Modern days when words mean whatever the “Master” says they mean, -- that’s all! (See my previous essay). “Everything is a social construct” is the Queen’s phrase (“off with their heads!”), men are utterly expendable and not only justice but even law becomes impossible in a state in which words lose their meaning and the victim and outcome are designated before the game begins.
The ultimate ‘masters’ today are the petty tyrants of family law in which the guaranteed winning play is to beat up the man even when it’s a Vet’s 5301 disability compensation. Jere Berry of 5301 notes that Veteran’s disability compensation “is tax exempt, and uniquely awarded to a single individual based on their specific disabilities.” Nevertheless, heartless enforcers of the feminist world state, so long and ruthlessly sought by utopian “social scientists” and their corporate enablers, are using these payments as “divisible assets in divorce courts nationwide” (www.offe2008.org). Men who already have given chunks of their lives are having their ability to live the rest of it looted.
Because few Americans have acted for nearly three decades as feminist ideology with its grand goal of destroying the family, gender, the status and reality of fathers so that women ‘marry’ the state and, in due course, via their damaged kids, serve the pharmaceutical-psyops industry these horrors have now attacked even the disability compensation of Veterans, soldiers who are to be disarmed, along with the rest of law-abiding Americans. The juggernaut of “no-fault” (that is, female-initiated, the man is always wrong) divorce, tightly knotted with government programs regarding multi-cultural ‘education,’ abortion, “welfare” and mandatory “health care” has grown so entrenched that it does not pause to commit even these enormities; it must sense that Americans are too busy with the pressures of getting by and/or by the distraction machine of Culturetainment that serves as their disabling respite to notice or do much to halt the atrocities. When have you heard a discussion of divorce courts and bias against fathers on the media? Yet it has ravaged scores of millions of Americans.
One of many bitter jokes in this aspect of post-modern, end-game American life is that the father has little idea, and no de facto ability or right to know if the “child support” the court orders them to pay to the mother is actually used to support their child or children. If a father pushes to find out he will eventually be punished but will learn nothing. And yet the “custodial parent,” almost always the mother who almost always initiates the “no-fault” divorce in which the father is treated like a criminal but lacks the protections that law affords to defendants in criminal cases, receives these monies and alimony tax free to use as she sees fit. Here is one of the perversions that characterize our darkened days: a Veteran that gives his health in national service has his tax free disability compensation taken at least in part and given tax free to a spouse or girl friend who often, in effect, has kidnapped his children since that is the reality that no-fault divorce creates: it not only legalizes but rewards and exalts maternal kidnapping, desertion of marriage and theft.
There are several ironies here: let us note just one that dates to the origin of modern feminism and relates to the super-people the media dumps on us daily. In A Vindication of the Rights of Women (1792) Mary Wollstonecraft argued that marriage was a form of prostitution in which a woman sold herself in exchange for maintenance instead of being fully independent and “equal.” That same ‘argument,’ disdaining nature, tradition and the basic unit of stable and prosperous societies has been a feminist truism but only in recent decades with no-fault divorce have we seen the claim vindicated in a way very different than the first feminist intended. Since women gained the right to initiate divorce early in the twentieth century (and then the right to vote which did not exactly lead to an era of peace, foreign or domestic, as they claimed but a state of perpetual and unnatural wars) they have indeed, with state sanction made marriage into a form of prostitution. A woman ‘contracts’ knowing that whenever she wishes she can dissolve the ‘union’ with a phone call and unsubstantiated claims of “abuse” or of being “in fear” and then seize the children, home, and most of whatever other assets there are, even the disability compensation of a crippled Veteran. Those who want America destroyed are pleased.
Confirmation of this chaos was provided by one of the newer talking hairstyles on FOX news. During a discussion of Paul McCartney’s divorce settlement in which his newly ex-wife secured about $130 million after four years of marriage, the pert blond hairstyle boomed out, “well, she earned it!” When the anchor asked if she realized what she was saying, she beamed, nodded and affirmed her view.
Hurray for feminism, the Nanny State and its infinite compassion! No-fault divorce has let women turn marriage into predatory prostitution: men be damned, children be damned, the family, the nation, the future all crumble in the mad greed and power lust of these surpassingly cruel times.
This is the context, and these are the views suggested by the terrible situation in which divorced disabled Veterans find themselves. Perhaps this horror will rouse people to corrective action. There still is enough shame in this culture that few politicians will stand before a parade of disabled Vets and their supporters protesting these kinds of abuses.
