Last week I ventured that the choice of Feb. 17th for Kosovo’s “National Day” may have been intended to suffuse it with Serbia’s National Day on Feb. 15th, yet another humiliation and part of the ongoing identity-stripping process of Serbia. I mentioned that John Kerry congratulated Serbia for its Feb. 15th National Day on the 14th, but chose the 15th itself to congratulate Kosovo for its Feb. 17th National Day. Now, one need not get so conspiratorial, given that Kerry probably picked the 15th simply because that was the last weekday (Friday) before the 17th which was a Sunday. But somehow, it just keeps working out in this general direction, don’t it?

Lo and behold, yet something else in this same general direction came up in connection with the two National Days. Olga Ravasi, of Chicago, informed me that on Feb. 15th, Serbian National Day, the Kosovo flag was being flown in front of the Daley Plaza. She reacted quickly, getting contacts from the consulate and intervening with the city. She actually succeeded in having it removed. (A link about the situation in Serbian here.)

She tells me that on Thursday Feb. 14th, the day of Kerry’s poisoned valentine to Serbia for National Day, the Serbian consulate hosted a banquet, with officials from the city present. She continued:

On Friday I drove by the Daley Plaza, accidentally, and was shocked when I saw the American flag, the flag of Illinois, and the flag of Kosovo.

I drove around 3 times, waiting for the wind, to make sure I see clearly and take a picture which is in the article. CRAZY.

So I called a friend at the consulate, we both called the City and they were telling us how that was an Albanian flag, and the Albanian community got permission because of their independence day. I mean, people who work there don’t even know flags or anything, they follow orders. But the consulate got involved, and they said they would take it down, and they did!!!!! I was proud of my little victory. Luckily, most people who walk around and go to work have no clue what flags are there, but it was such a slap in the face — on that day in particular. Especially when they said the Albanian community got permission. What community??? They have nothing here, no consulate, no reps of any kind. Idiotic!!!!

Nothing, no one, no reps. And yet. And yet. Someone, somewhere, somehow got to someone working for the City of Chicago, to have the Kosovo flag fly. On Serbian National Day. They don’t sleep, Folks, they don’t sleep. Serb-hatred is a more effective stimulant than cocaine.

But now we have to analyze the statement, “Oh, that’s the Albanian flag. It’s their national day too.” The latter half of that was dealt with at the beginning of this blog: the purposeful date-confusion seems to have worked. But as to the former — “That’s the Albanian flag” — there’s something extra special about this. Washington, think of all the effort you’ve expended on getting the “Kosovars” to accept the Kosovo flag, and getting the world to accept that Kosovo independence is about Kosovo rather than Albanian expansion, which is why you’ve assigned it that new, inorganic banner. And think about how the Albanians keep undermining the subterfuge of that message, by insisting on waving the more honest (i.e. overt in intention) Albanian flag. Just think of all your effort that’s gone into duping Americans about what’s really behind Kosovo — only to have instances like this pop up to show that it was all for naught.

Because Americans have outdone you in duping themselves, too stupid to even get the propaganda right. Except for our intelligentsia, we’re too ignorant to be brainwashed properly. We don’t even know we had a war there. On the eve of the millennium. The last pre-9/11 war. On behalf of Muslims.

These Chicago employees have inverted the propaganda you’ve been drilling, and mistakenly arrived at the correct conclusion and the end game you’ve been concealing: The Kosovo and Albania flag is one and the same. It’s Albanian. And this is Albanian National Day. (The one that’s in addition to the Nov. 28th Albanian National Day.)

‘It’s not the Kosovo flag, it’s the Albanian flag, so it’s OK.’ Nothing to get upset about. Because it’s all Greek (a.k.a. Albanian) to us.

And thanks to that, the propaganda wasn’t able to undo the most basic and obvious seed of understanding that Americans did have at some distant point: The Albanianness of Kosovo. As opposed to its Kosovarness.

To get us Amerkns to get the intended lie straight, you’d have to reduce the propaganda to its accurate components — which flag is which — thereby starting with the correct foundation from which to build the lie.

Good luck, Foggy Bottom. Fourteen years and counting. You’ve even got the entire intelligentsia on your side.

But really, there’s no need for all the effort. As I’ve said before, the U.S.’s sweating over its demon child is redundant, wasted on a populace that doesn’t notice or care what you do in that region to begin with.
