The Re-Education Of Lauryn Hill

May 16, 2013 by  

The Re-Education Of Lauryn Hill
UPI FILE
Lauryn Hill must report to prison by July 8.

Ready or not, Lauryn Hill of Fugees fame has found herself sentenced to three months in a cage for extortion evasion. The extortionists call it “tax evasion,” but calling it by another name doesn’t change what it really is.

This sort of harassment and kidnapping is fairly par for the course in the USSA, of course. Just ask Wesley Snipes or Willie Nelson. But there is a new twist this time around. The tax-funded judge ordered that Hill undergo psychiatric care in what amounts to brainwashing and re-education. Why? Apparently, it’s simply for publicly proclaiming the fact that the music industry is designed to strangle true talent while promoting mindless drivel.

Let’s just take a look at some of Hill’s lyrics and compare them to some of the top Illuminati symbol-flashing pop stars in her genre today to see if perhaps she has a point. From “Mystery of Iniquity”:

Ya’ll can’t handle the truth in a courtroom of lies
Perjures the jurors
Witness despised
Crooked lawyers
False Indictments publicized
It’s entertainment…the arraignments
The subpoenas
High profile gladiators in bloodthirsty arenas
Enter the Dragon
Black-robe crooked-balance
Souls bought and sold and paroled for thirty talents
Court reporter catch the surface on the paper
File it in the system not acknowledged by the Maker
Swearing by the Bible blatantly blasphemous
Publicly perpetrating that “In God We Trust”
Cross-examined by a master manipulator
The faster intimidator
Receiving the judge’s favor
Deceiving sabers doing injury to they neighbors
For status, gratis, apparatus and legal waivers
See the bailiff
Representing security
Holding the word of God soliciting perjury
The prosecution
Political prostitution
The more money you pay… the further away solution

Now, let’s look at some of her modern-day peer group. Here are some lyrics to “I’m the Best” by Nicki Minaj:

I hear they coming for me.
Because the top is lonely.
What the fuck they gon say?
What the fuck they gon say?
I’m the best bitch doing it,
I’m the best bitch doing it.
I’m the be be best.
I am the Best!
Eh, Eh, it’s okay.
It’s okay.
Long as you know,
Long as you know,
Long as you mothafuckin know, I am the best best best best. I’m the best best best best…

OK. Maybe that is just one small example. Let’s look at one of Beyoncé’s latest hits, “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)”:

I got gloss on my lips, a man on my hips
Hold me tighter than my Dereon jeans
Acting up, drink in my cup
I could care less what you think
I need no permission, did I mention
Don’t pay him any attention
‘Cause you had your turn
And now you gonna learn
What it really feels like to miss me

‘Cause if you liked it, then you should have put a ring on it
If you liked it, then you should’ve put a ring on it
Don’t be mad once you see that he want it
‘Cause if you liked it, then you should’ve put a ring on it
Wuh uh oh uh uh oh oh uh oh uh uh oh
Wuh uh oh uh uh oh oh uh oh uh uh oh

‘Cause if you liked it, then you should have put a ring on it
If you liked it, then you should’ve put a ring on it
Don’t be mad once you see that he want it
‘Cause if you liked it, then you should’ve put a ring on it
Wuh uh oh uh uh oh oh uh oh uh uh oh
Wuh uh oh uh uh oh oh uh oh uh uh oh

I think Hill might have a point.

The Re-Education Of Lauryn Hill

Ironically, Hill released her album “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill” in 1998. Today, in the United States, Hill is about to be forcibly re-educated.

Her crime? Believing in “conspiracy theories” that the music industry pushes out people like her who try to speak about the truth in favor of those like Minaj and Beyoncé above. Whether she is correct isn’t the point, however.

The point is that the United States has begun “re-educating” countless people for any belief that doesn’t jibe with what is pushed out by the mainstream presstitute propaganda machine. Brandon Raub was kidnapped for doing just that and sent to be re-educated.

The term “re-education camp” was the official title given to the prison camps operated by the government of Vietnam following the end of the Vietnam War. In such re-education camps, the government imprisoned several hundred thousand former military officers and government workers from the former regime of South Vietnam. Re-education, as it was implemented in Vietnam, was seen as both a means of revenge and a sophisticated technique of repression and indoctrination.

We’ll have to see how outspoken Hill is after her internment. If she tones down her lyrics and contempt for the fascistic music industry, then it will be clear she has been repressed, broken and — to take play on a line from her most famous cover song — she has been killed softly because of her songs.

Get Out

The chorus one of Hill’s 2002 songs, “I Get Out,” states:

I get out, I get out of all your boxes
I get out, you can’t hold me in these chains

Unfortunately for Hill, she didn’t realize she should literally get out long ago. Artists, more than most, have the ability to easily escape slavery in the United States. If she had been a The Dollar Vigilante reader years ago, she would have realized that she should have become a citizen of another country like St. Kitts, the Dominican Republic or Paraguay without re-education camps and with no taxes that apply to her work and lived the Permanent Traveller/Prior Taxpayer (PT) lifestyle that we promote. As an artist who is regularly touring, it would have been incredibly easy to do.

She would have saved millions of dollars in extortion payments. And no matter what she said about the U.S. music industry, it is quite doubtful that the governments of places like the Dominican Republic or Paraguay would find her statements cause for psychiatric internment.

Unfortunately, Hill is learning all of this too late. She probably never heard of options like this from her financial adviser or manager. It’s too bad. But you don’t have to make the same mistake.

If you have the capability, we suggest you look at your options to get out now from one of the most dangerous and oppressive countries on Earth, the United States.

    Why dat nobody call dat racizm? Des aaah caaa ev’thin ess racism. I’z yo bo wha do dat tu yu! Yus gaa da do now…yo baa na tu! ge use t’a it! Yo in da same bo now!

    • Hawk!

      You are right we are all in “da same bo now”. But racism cannot be tolerated in any situation. If the system wants to do that then the system has to go…. Period!

    • Jeff

      The irony is you probably can’t even detect your own implicit racism. She is a Black woman likely far more intelligent and articulate, and certainly more creative and richer, than you’ll ever be. She had a difference of agreement, shall we say, with the government over how much income she should have reported. While I know nothing about how much she made or claimed, I really cannot fathom the nature of a “mind” that instantly goes to a bad “Amos and Andy” riff. I’m sure your next “post” will deal with her caloric need for watermelon and fried chicken.

  • Chester

    Mr. Berwick, if you are so sure of being robbed BY the United States, why, may I ask, are YOU still a citizen here? Authors, like musicians, are subject to being taxed on their work, as are lawyers, doctors, mechanics, and carpenters. I hear a lot from people who enjoy all the privileges of living here, and even more from people like you who think there should be no responsibilities to go with those privileges. Oh, and yes, paying taxes on your income IS a responsibility, like it or not.

    • Nadzieja Batki

      You apparently are supported by someone else who pays taxes because you reek of immaturity.

    • Charles

      Chester, the “responsibility” to pay taxes does not mean meekly handing over more than half of what you earn, or even three-quarters of what you earn. The government is not supposed to be our masters, with absolutely no regard for our beliefs. No-one has said there should be no responsibilities. Your use of that lie makes me believe that you are a liberal.

  • TheSilverRanger

    This won’t be the first time that the parasites in the federal government try to make our lives miserable by making it a practical prison camp worse than some of the acts North Korea even wishes it could dream up. And it certainly won’t be the last. The Communist parasites and the Marxist altruists are nothing more than losers who want to hurt people because they themselves failed to succeed, and want to blame others beside themselves.

    Lauren Hill is just another example of how the parasites in the government trying to silence the artist or anyone who opposes their agenda. I can only pray that Lauren Hill will still have the ability to fight after this brainwashing by them. Here’s what I’m talking about:

    In America, an artist strives to frame his ideals in an image; to challenge his audience and to make his vision immortal. But the parasites in the government say NO! “Your art must serve the cause! Your ideals endanger the people!”

    The parasite makes nothing for itself. It’s only tools are taxes and tithes meant to trick you into offering that which is not earned. In America, we’re supposed to keep what is ours. What’s more, lacking its own ingenuity, the parasite fears the visionary. What it cannot plagiarize, it seeks to censor. What it cannot regulate, it seeks to ban. America was founded on an idea, and those ideas were supposed to be held inviolate.

    • Jeff

      Since when does any of that have anything to do with tax evasion? If she made a million dollars and claimed she made half a million, that’s called tax evasion. I don’t know what she did and clearly neither do you. But if you think she was convicted and sentenced over artistic differences with the government, I say you’re crazy. Every newspaper in the country would be running multiple-page stories about her if there were even the slightest hint of that. Her lawyers would be on every TV news show telling us the details if that were the case. Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar!

  • Jeff

    She was sentenced for tax evasion. I know nothing of the details of her case. You may know some of them, but your article reveals none of them. Of one thing I am fairly certain. She was not sentenced because of her lyrics.
