I think it’s fairly obvious that the part about Guam tipping over was not meant seriously. The question I would ask is why this little island with its fairly limited population should be colonized and garrisoned by an additional 25,000 people. Indeed why should the US rule Guam at all? The local magistrates with the backing of the overwhelming majority of the Guamanian people attempted to outlaw abortion on the island in the late 1980s only to be told by their Washington overlords that they would have to accept abortion on demand whether they liked it or not. Guam is a far flung outpost of the US empire and if that empire is to be dismantled, Guam would not be a bad place to start. Or is this a case of “if we don’t stop them in Guam, we’ll have to fight them in San Diego” – whoever “them” refers to.
Kirt Higdon: I don’t think that anyone here opposes the dismantling of the empire nor the right of the natural citizens of Guam to form their own ethnostate. However, why do you think Johnson is joking? I don’t see anyone laughing in the video. Everyone, around the blogsphere, seems to think he’s sincere in his comments.
