I’m late to learning the details of what has transpired from the Nazi and White Supremacist terrorist attacks that took place in Charlottesville, Virginia. I refuse to use the term “Alt-Right.” These are militant, white, Nazi terrorists that want to usher in to this country an ethnic cleansing.
Their hatred and terrorism are without doubt fueled by Donald Trump, whose own father was arrested after a KKK riot in 1927 in Queens. Donald must be proud.
Their hatred and terrorism are without doubt fueled by Steve Bannon, Trump’s White House Chief Strategist and the former “executive chair of Breitbart News, a far-right[i] news, opinion, and commentary website which he described in 2016 as “the platform for the alt-right“.
So Trump didn’t want to condemn their murderous rampage. It took him days to decide to blame it on everybody. Bullshit! This man shames the office he holds. He is a deplorable. He is turning this nation into a more deplorable place.
And I thank all of my conservative religious friends who voted for this detestable man who encourages the basket of deplorables. This rests on you, make no mistake. You put this monster in office because you lack discernment. You can’t tell a serpent from a leader. Stop lying to yourselves: God had nothing to do with your vote.
And, mark these words, this is just the beginning.
I stand with my black friends. I stand with my Jewish friends. White Supremacist, Nazi, Anti-Jewish terrorism must be stopped in this nation. Full Stop.
I just watched this HBO documentary on the recent events in Charlottesville in utter shock and horror. How can this be my country? I stand against this. This is wrong. This is deplorable in every way! These people are domestic terrorists that are being encouraged by 45.
Watching this is mandatory. Dude says it out loud: ethnic cleansing in the USA! My God!
Don’t have the 22 minutes to watch and prefer to read a brief synopsis with photos? Check out this link.
And finally, let me drive home, yet once again on this blog, that the history of fundamentalism has very deep roots in the KKK and racism. I’ve shared this before, but it seems timely to share it again: The Real Origins of the Religious Right. And also, another piece I wrote: Still Outraged by the Big Con.
An aside: even the company that makes the Tiki lanterns these terrorists used (see top photo) has issued a statement condemning their actions and claiming that their products were manufactured to bring families closer together in their backyards not this despicable behavior.
The white supremacist, nazi, Christopher Cantwell, who was prominently featured bullying and blustering in the HBO special above, is now crying like a baby because there is a warrant out for his arrest. I hope he’s being charged with conspiracy to commit murder! Listen to him whimper. He actually says he’s scared of Chelsea Manning stomping his ass into the curb.
Dude is revolting. To prison he must go: domestic terrorism.
