'Ameritianity' -- idolatry on its face!
They literally removed "Christ" from "Christianity" and replaced it with the name of the idol, "Ameri" -- to form a new nonword! Amazing.
And by that, I mean - more or less - "God damn white America!"
I will, however, grant you: to-MAY-toe, to-MAH-toe.
It is the legacy of white power not diffused and fading away underground like for most of us. It is the legacy of white power defended and hyperventilated. And it reveals the roots of what remains dying but undead in us.
I am proud to be an American. But my pride is precisely in those things about my country that has overcome white hegemony, white moral escapism, and white refusal to engage in clear sighted self-criticism.
My pride is in the communitarian democracy that is winning the day and that disallows me from holding a vision of America that does not also oppose white pride.
The site is the distillation of Whiteness; this is the source of its offensive vehemence.
Whiteness as Ideology (conscious or unconscious, intentional or unintentional)...
... rather than whiteness as identity, which, to be healthy, has to be largely conscious -- and consciously understood as self-authenticating and, at the same time, self-limiting.
And, most of it is just plain wrong.
Ineely: That makes my head hurt: A "green" "partner" with the EPA, in Texas, supporting Ameritianity. Lawl, indeed. Can you say "opportunist" ?
It isn't so much opportunism as it is shameless self-promotion and uninhibited egotism. He uses his business to promote his "ministry," and vice-versa.
Someone with a working knowledge of basic English grammar and spelling should proofread their articles for them. Anyone have a 3 year old they can spare?
(Why is it always the English Only folks who are the most illiterate?)
The above organization does not share your view of "Ameritianity." Looks like they post articles as they come in. Do you proofread all the junk posted on this site?
Still looking for something specific you can intelligently find wrong with the site.
"Looks like they post articles as they come in. Do you proofread all the junk posted on this site?"
Actually, the articles I looked at were written by the Amer-inanity folks themselves.
I'm assuming, from the tenor of "anonymous'" complaint, and grammar excellence, that we are dealing with someone we know, but is a bit too timid to use his blog identity. The dead giveaway is the insistence on specificity, even as specific complaints are rendered.
Judging by the responses they get from their readers, I'd say they seem to appreciate what they see there.
Anyway, thanks for introducing me to their site.
Oh happy day....I am not alone! So glad to find this site! Ginger 06/10/09
I love this site because factual articles, links, statements are made. I try to post a link to this website for on every post i make on left-wing blog spots, hoping the messages here will wake them up and make them aware as to why they need Christ and to make them aware as to the damage Obama and Congress are causing our nation. God bless those at www.ameritianity.com Ken H. in Alabama 06/08/09
Like so many, I also discovered Ameritianity while reading comments at Fox News. This morning I watched the D Day ceremony at Normandy, and was so touched by President Sarcozy's speech, the most beautiful playing of Taps that I have ever heard, and most of all the opening prayer. My search so far for the prayer has been unsuccessful. I would very much like to have it to read again. Also Mr. Sarcozy's speech. Can you provide that for your readers? Thank you for this fine website. Marge in Holton, Kansas 06/06/09
This smells like Tugboat Cap'n, who *has* been known to troll 'round here anonymously.
Here's one thing the Ameritianity people are utterly wrong about, and it's pretty much the premise for the whole rancid site:
America (sic; that is, the United States( has been blessed by God in the past because of its Christian heritage, and many of her troubles today stem from a drift away from those "holy" origins.
Well, let's see ... bullshit, bullshit and bullshit.
The USA "blessed by God"? Only if God blessed her with diseases that Europeans were immune to but the natives here weren't; with a worship of the free market as if it were ordained by God God's self; with naturally occurring geographic borders insurmountable by most of our enemies until relatively recently; oh, and the biggy: God blessed this country with goddamned slavery, upon which the South based its culture and agriculture, and the North based its financial infrastructure -- and God continues to "bless" this country withh all the good accruing to every one of is from each of those actual evils.
Bullshit onj the whole idea that this country has been "blessed" -- this country has, and continues to, for the most part, rape, pillage and burn what it can't fricking steal fair and square.
We need to repent, all right -- repent of patriotism and nationalism when it gets between any Christian and Christ.
If so, it's because they corrected a typo after I pointed it out.
What is wrong with a business person financing a ministry. Don't all causes raise money. Looks like Ameritianity raises all their operating expenses from their own legitimate business.
When someone has no moral or ethical foundation, when you have only the "opinion" of other men to rely on, and when that opinion is based on political motives, moral confusion follows. This President was confronted with pirates who had taken over 100+ ships off the coast of Somalia. No hostages have been killed. Pirates are teenagers. One hostage is taken and money is demanded. The decision is made to kill the pirates.
Yet, another President makes the decision, after a terrorist attack that killed 3000+ Americans, to "waterboard" three known terrorists, one who stated that he knew of additional imminent attacks on Americans, after members of Congress and the Legal Establishment gave advice and consent, and that President and his Administration are threatened with prosecution by the very people who authorized killing the teenagers who had not yet hurt anyone. All three terrorists who were "waterboarded" are still living, have their heads, arms, legs, fingers, and had an experience less traumatic than USMC Boot Camp or Navy Seal training, That is moral confusion and playing politics at a very dangerous level.
You missed the points of the protests. It's not just about "tax rates". It is about running up the "deficit" and the "national debt" which you and the administration propose to QUADRUPLE! Americans know that all debt will be paid back someday, that it will be paid with tax dollars which ultimately come from the American people whether it is by increased taxes in the future, inflation, taxes on business or productivity, or borrowing from Peter to pay Paul. The Boston Tea Party was also about the lack of "REPRESENTATION". It is about Congress signing off on spending bills they have not read. It is about a President insulting the American people and our previously elected officials by painting them as "ARROGANT" while Obama, the most arrogant President in history, speaks on foreign soil. It is about an administration that was NOT the first choice of 75% of the American people acting as if it has a mandate to "CHANGE" virtually everything about the USA. It is about a President who was not properly vetted by what is supposed to be an unbiased press. It is about calling Americans who disagree with the administration "un-American". And that is just the tip of the iceberg.
Did you think you were imagining things about Candidate Obama during the campaign? Did you feel something running up and down your brainstem that said "something just isn't right about this guy"? Did the cheering crowds of people crazed by Obama cause concern, especially since little is known about the guy?
Is Obama set on destroying American as we know it in order to try to rebuild America in his own twisted image? Destroying or controlling all business. Stock Market at 50% of what it was before his nomination. Blaming the previous administration for everything. Breaking promise after promise. Here are one professionals observations.
If 93% of whites voted for the white candidate for President, what would you call it? What do you call it when 93% of blacks vote for the black candidate? Could Obama be setting race relations in the US back many years?
EDITORS NOTE: The "RIGHT TO PRIVACY" was never a "RIGHT" found in the Constitution until Roe V. Wade which legalized abortion. This new found "RIGHT" has never been applied to any issue except abortion. Is Obama applying a litmus test?
The Obama Deficit: "A fresh estimate of the deficit showed it coming in at $1.84 trillion -- representing a massive 12.9% of gross domestic product -- in the current 2009 fiscal year that ends on Sept. 30. A prior White House forecast released in February projected a deficit of $1.75 trillion, or 12.3% of GDP."
The Bush Deficit: Washington - The US government's deficit exceeded projections for the just-ended 2007-08 budget year, hitting a record 455 billion Dollars , federal officials announced late Tuesday. Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson and Jim Nussle, director of the Office of Management and Budget, issued a joint statement summarizing the government's revenues and spending for the 12 months through September.
EDITORS NOTE: So, to FIX the Bush Deficit of $455 Billion, Obama will grow the Deficit to $1.75 Trillion? Since November, 2007, the Democrats controlled the House and Senate and bragged about President Bush being a "Lame Duck" President. Obama often speaks about his "inheriting" this mess. Haven't heard him mention that his inheritance came from the Democrat congress.
Move on and find something a little less powerful to bash than people seeking to share their faith.
Cracks me UP when rightwads suggest or declare that I'm not a Christian because I think their politics are dangerous! L and OL
Somebody has to untie Jesus from the Talkin' Bass wall decoration he's tied to!
LIBERATE him from the warmongering, free-market-worshiping Church of the Golden Calf that has him held hostage.
Sign. Me. Up.
Re, "people seeking to share their faith."
My point: It's a false faith, if it's so tangled up in nationalism and nation-worship and capitalism worship. It's a Hydra. Sure ain't any God I ever grew up with -- not even in a chicken-fried Southern Baptist church.
THIS DOESN'T SOUND LIKE A FALSE FAITH TO ME...THE BOAT MAN
Guffaw. Settle down there, hoss. It's yer typos that got me so riled in the first place.
Like "(Christ is America)" -- that IS what it said. Pardone de moi if, considering the other bile on that site, I assummed you meant it and meant it literally. I see that you've taken that bit down now. Very good.
Now, quit insisting that Obama isn't a Christian because he's not a right-wing Christian; quit lying about him and the Dem Party being socialists; when pretending that Dubya hung the dang moon; quit lying to youself about waterboarding (it's torture by any definition but yours), and it's very, very non-Jesusy; and, you know, try tell the truth about something. Try it! You'll feel a lot better when you quit torturing (oopsie!) your conscience by telling all these lies. Srsly.
But since you brought it up. I promkise I will never have one. O promise I will do everything in my power to persuade my daughter not to have one, if she faced that, including volunteering to take the child to raise myself. Start a national fund to give unwanted babies a chance at life; I'll contribute; I'll also support any federal legislation, or state, to take unwanted babies to raise. I will.
But I will never support simply criminalizing abortion. So soddy.
No. Not it is not! Try again!
It's about living life NOW as a conduit of God's love, and working to advance the kingdom. It is NOT about what *I* GET! Or what *YOU* GET. It's about what *I* GIVE, and what *YOU* GIVE!!
You've ot your fire insurance, I'll bet. You walked the aisle. I can smell it. I did, too. Read your insurance policy carefully, man. It has to be updated regularly.
You were sarcastic relative to the "ministry" of Ameritianity in the face of hundreds of readers specifically writing about how they have benefited from the website.
The site has never stated that Obama is not a Christian. They have posted HIS OWN STATEMENTS via audio and video that are not found in the media so that citizens can make up their own minds about the qualifications of Obama.
... the hatred of white people ... defended and lied about ...
Why do so many of the people of the world long to come to the USA?
But it is fun to rile up the trolls sometimes.
Ah, for the days of the mimeograph and small levels of distribution of the weird.
Even so, back in the 60's my four page weekly mimeographed newsletter had a bigger "readership" than my current blog available world wide.
ER the site in question is small potatoes compared to the real bile flowing on the Internet.
Absolutely. I am sarcastic, and I am suspicious of anyone who testifies to having "benefited" from such hockey. Absolutely. Hell's bells, man, white freaks testify to "benefits" from the Ku Klux Klan's "ministry" too. That means nada.
Probably to do their small part to chip away at white hegemony. The principles of the country are wonderful. The market system is great, too, when kept in check by the people and the people's government. It sure ain't 'cause they love what white power has done with it lately.
Screw the deficit! I could not care less -- not until this "free market" run amok is arighted.
Keep it up!
ER: If I were a Christian, I would emit a loud and boisterous amen in response to your comments. Perhaps I will step outside of myself for a moment if indeed only to say, "Amen!"
