“Mutantism on the March” :Chapter 117: The Mutants Keep on Getting Shit Upon

The mutants thought it preferable being weak and sincere as opposed to strong and hypocritical. USSR mutant hate was secondary to USA hate. During the Vietnam “conflict” the Yankee mutants had ferociously diatribed the idiocy and brutality of their government which resulted to numerous braying’s of betrayal. Former United States President Affliction had made them one of his targets in his notorious Houston Plan implicating them in a Vietcong drug ring operating in the United States poisoning high school students with heroin laced candies. The naïve American public, at least those who ate Swanson frozen dinners in front of their televisions nightly, lapped Affliction’s barbs against the mutants, making it open season on the mutants. The mutants were exonerated later after an Affliction tape recording had been unearthed by the Washington Post where Affliction snickered, he was going to frame those “mutant bastards”. Southern United States had a special hatred of the mutants as over half the mutant cadres were non-Caucasian. They had always been actively fighting segregation in the Southern United States which riled the Fucked-Up Clan, a senile group of fascists service station owners that specialized in beating, hanging and maiming loud mouthed coloured’s and stupid Northern student communists that supported negro rights. More than a few mutants were gunned down by the Clan who retaliated by blowing up half the service stations in Georgia.

Many parents in the United States told their children that mutants were the monsters hiding under their beds and if they didn’t eat their broccoli the mutants under their beds would haunt them. Initially after the grisly Tate murders in Los Angeles the mutants were blamed. Farly Manson the mastermind and chief butcher in the Tate murders was labelled a mutant, A mind mutant he was but he had had no place in a mutant movement that rejected mutants who were murderers, perverts and the like. Americans began to fear a rash of mutant killings until Twiggy, one of Manson’s killers issued a statement that Manson detested mutants and called them “walking imperfections” who would be destroyed when his family seized power.

The mutants of the world assembled at the Hellsinkit United Nations Human Rights Convention in the hope of being able to address the delegates on the evils of mutant prosecution and violation of their human rights. However only “official delegations” appointed by their governments were permitted to speak and attend the Convention meaning of course the mutants were denied a voice. Squid wrote a statement in the International Mutant Herald:

Mutants of the world we have been rejected from participation at the Hellsinkit Conference on Human Rights. This is a body that supposedly is concerned with violations of human rights in the world. Very odd considering that governments are the biggest violators of human rights in the world yet only governmental delegations are permitted to speak at this conference. Consequently, this is a sham Convention which is nothing more than a media circus and a public swindle of the grandest proportions. We mutants are aware that nothing of consequence will emerge from such a circus of hot air performers!

The main performers in this Convention are the USA and USSR which are the two biggest violators of human rights in the world. In public they criticize each other but, in the bars, afterwards, where the real business is done, they laugh with each other over shots of vodka. Overt human rights repression in the USSR was evident with the liquidation of the kulaks. Writers and poets are imprisoned for “thought crime”. In the USA repression is a bit more subtle where that regime concentrates its repression in Central and South America. It really doesn’t have to dirty its hands as it has local lackies doing that for them.

We mutants are a nation linked by our common suffering. We have no need for a homeland. We asked to be treated decently in our homelands. We challenge all repressive regimes and for these concerns many of us end up imprisoned. We don’t ask much at the moment. Let the world treat us mutants with respect. If you don’t give us the status of mutants then at least give us the status of “normal people”. Perhaps we mutants are dreamers but didn’t Dr. Martin Luther King have a dream? It seems our dreams bring ridicule while their dreams bring them Nobel Peace prizes. For many of us our dreams are all we have left. That is a poor reflection on this world.”
