Will White Supremacy In the US Ever Be Dealt with Effectively?

White supremacyThe problem of white supremacy will never be dealt with effectively in the US as long as people choose to stay in the state of denial that it still exists. Until people in this country acknowledge that white supremacy is alive and well in America, and we all take on the subject of racism, not much will change. In fact, white supremacy will probably increase to the point where it will create violent instability in this country. In most ways this would be a bad thing to happen, although I can actually see where this type of action may be necessary. Even though I embrace principles of nonviolence and pacifism, I can honestly admit that some type of “cleansing process” may be necessary.

By the term “cleansing process” I simply mean that it may be necessary for those of us on the Left to meet force with force, especially since most of the white supremacist organizations I’ve seen always seem to be well armed. I am suggesting that it may be necessary for those of us on the Left, to also be well armed and ready to use whatever means necessary to stop his ugliness known as “white supremacy” to end, or least be stifled to the point where it is no longer dangerous.

After the incident in Charlottesville, VA, we need to start considering the question, how does white supremacy affect society? Even though there have been other incidents of white supremacist violence, the incident in Charlottesville seems to bring the entire issue to a head. I, and I suspect other people, have come to the conclusion that every white supremacist group needs to be dealt with effectively. By effectively, I mean it’s such a way that it ceases to be a driving factor in today’s society, as it now seems. I think most of agree with we ask ourselves the question, “is white supremacy on the rise? The answer would seem to be yes definitely.

Even though I firmly believe in the U.S. Constitution and principles of freedom of speech, there comes a point when this freedom of speech should be controlled, especially if it leads to violence, as it did in Charlottesville. I’m not proposing we amend the U.S. Constitution or alter the clause dealing with “freedom of speech”, mostly because that would betray the very core principles upon which this document is based. I am suggesting that when this freedom of speech leads to violence, things have been allowed to go too far.

Like I said before, those of us on the Left and even those who consider themselves moderates, should be ready to meet force with force because the white supremacist have always kept violence as an open option for them to use when they see fit. Maybe it’s time we on the Left started thinking the same way. If they want blood, we on the Left should be ready to give it to them in full measure.

White Supremacist Rally in Charlottesville, VA Breaks out in Violence Against Counter Protesters

White Supremacist Rally in Charlottesville, VA Breaks out in Violence Against Counter Protesters

A white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, VA broke out in violence when a white supremacist attacked anti racism counter protesters. I can say is I’m at all surprised by this incident because I predicted that there may be some type of violence at this rally by white supremacists. I wrote about it in my last post.

Apparently, the violence began after someone drove a car into anti-racist counter-demonstrators. It is thought that this car was driven by white supremacists, who were probably trying to scare the anti-racists. Using violence to suppress opposers is nothing unexpected from people who thrive on hatred and violence against others who do may disagree with them. Typical fascist behavior!

Even though in a statement, Donald Trump addressed this violent incident he still refused to accept responsibility for the increase in hatred and racist violence in this country. He blamed “all sides” for the violence, still refusing to acknowledge that he has a “white nationalist”, Steve Bannon, on his cabinet. In case you do not know, the term “white nationalist” is a code word for white supremacist.

As if we can ever forget, Donald Trump used racist hate speech during his entire campaign for the presidency. He needs to own up to it and admit that this hate speech from his campaign may be a reason for the increased empowerment of white supremacists in this country. However, I will not hold my breath until he admits this connection between his campaign rhetoric and the increase in racist behavior in the United States. I don’t want to suffocate waiting for it!

 

The Left Must Always Oppose White Supremacists And Fascists

White supremacists and fascists must not be allowed to go unchecked by not only the Left, but society as a whole.

The Largest Fascist Rally in Recent Memory Is Expected This Week — Can the Left Unite Against It?

http://www.truth-out.org/news/item/41532-the-largest-fascist-rally-in-recent-memory-is-expected-this-week-can-the-left-unite-against-it

The Left Must Always Oppose White Supremacists and Fascists

White supremacists and fascists must not be allowed to go unchecked by not only the Left but society . These peddlers of hatred and racism must be stopped, by any means necessary. Even though I always embrace the concept of nonviolent resistance, it has gotten to the point where these people are so out of control that the time has come to resist them, even if it means violence.

After all, have they ever been afraid to use the tools of fear and intimidation against others, usually helpless minorities? No, they have not. And neither should we.

On August 12, many white supremacists and fascists I plan on having what they call “Unite The Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. The reason that Charlottesville, VA was chosen for the site of this rally is not to be because the city recently ruled that a statue of Confederate commander Robert E Lee was to be removed from a public park. This apparently set the wheels of racism in motion.

Even though some faith-based organizations have pledged to show resistance, as well as Black Lives Matter, no large-scale counter demonstration has been planned by most members of the Left. To me, this is a colossal mistake. By not responding to these white supremacists, we are conceding the field; something which leaves a bad taste in my mouth. I learned a long time ago that these types of hate groups cannot or should not be ignored.

As an answer to this lack of large-scale response, most leaders of the Left seem to make excuses instead of engaging in a real, meaningful action. They always seem to give the reasons (or better yet, excuse) that their involvement will only draw more attention to these groups and that if you leave them alone, they will go away. This is naïve bullshit!

At some point, the Left needs to realize that even though nonviolence is an excellent practice to use when changing government policies, or protesting some type of government action that is deemed to be unjust when dealing with groups whose entire existence is based on hatred of others, sometimes violence may be necessary and justified.

Don’t get me wrong, because I’m not saying that we should just shoot these people down the streets because that is the furthest thing from my mind. However, showing up in force, possibly ready to do battle if necessary, is probably a good idea even though I grant it would be risky.

The Left, and others, should realize that these people will not just go away. This is particularly true because they have become emboldened by the rhetoric of Donald Trump. They have come to think that because the President of the United States engages in hate speech and even hate action, it’s perfectly okay for them to express themselves, no matter how offensive it may be.

It is a past time the Left, and other people, stop laying down for these people. They are nothing less than an offensive blight on this entire country and should be dealt with effectively. If “effectively” means hurting some of these people, then so be it.

A Small Part of the Legacy of President Obama

A Small Part of the Legacy of President Obama

president obamaPresident Obama was celebrated by the left because he was able to bail us out of the horrible financial situation that GW Bush left us in. President Obama was able to bring about one of the biggest economic recoveries in this country’s history. His reforms on Wall Street and the entire banking system could have been revolutionary if they had ever been carried out properly. Unfortunately, they were not because the right kept spreading lies about how his proposed reforms would wreck our economy, despite the fact that he pulled the automobile industry out of a financial disaster by loaning them federal money in what amounted to a bailout. This bailout of the automobile industry saved it from self-destruction and guaranteed it would survive. It, in itself, is proof that President Obama was responsible for a very large economic recovery. He was willing to take a gamble that federal loans to the automobile industry would eventually pay off, which they did. The automobile industry paid back these loans within a couple of years. When have Wall Street bankers ever been able to say the same thing?

When have Wall Street bankers ever been able to say the same thing?

Also, he was able to lower the unemployment rate much compared to his predecessor who only helped create the situation of high unemployment. Under President Obama, people started finding more jobs and working more. Granted, many of these jobs were substandard ones that paid substandard wages, but nonetheless, they were still jobs. Perhaps if the big businessmen that run this country would not have shipped all the good jobs overseas, things would have been different. However, President Obama was not responsible for this shipment of jobs overseas.

Another thing that President Obama is responsible for is extricating us from a costly and unjust war in Iraq. This war was not only costly in the amount of money that was spent on it, but more importantly, the cost in human lives. Over 4000 American GIs were killed in this ugly atrocity, created by President George W. Bush. An estimated 300,000 to 400,000 Iraqis were killed in this horrible war. For what reason were all these people killed?

The answer is, absolutely nothing. Present GW Bush accomplished absolutely nothing with his war on Iraq, but to create the current level of instability in the entire Middle East. This entire region remains unstable to this very day. There is very little that President Obama could do about the situation other than to do as much as he could to insulate the United States from it and protect this country from the terrorists created by it. Expecting him to solve it, would be asking a miracle.

The unfortunate thing is that President Obama continued the violence with his drone stop strikes on supposed “terrorists”, even though there was often times very little if any, evidence that these people on the ground were actually terrorists.  He is also responsible for starting up many “secret bases” from which our military work.  President Obama is somewhat guilty of maintaining the quest for an “American Empire”.Will this country never stop his quest for “Manifest Destiny”?  This type of mentality should have disappeared along with Theodore Roosevelt, but unfortunately, President Obama was guilty of playing into it.

Most of us on the left consider Obama to be mostly moderate and considered him to be a liberal only on occasion. However, we still celebrate the fact that a person of color can advance themselves to a position where they are able to hold the highest office in the land. Most of us on the left celebrate the fact that Obama symbolizes that white people of European descent no longer have a stranglehold on who controls this country. Obama’s symbolizes an end to the Eurocentrism that has always dominated the United States. There is nothing that scares wealthy old white man of European descent more than the thought that a person of color could actually be legitimately put in a position of power. Power is something that these people of Eurocentric values wish for more than anything, just as long as it remains in their hands.

Our current president or as many of us like to call him “the great pretender”, Donald Trump is a perfect example of this racist Eurocentric mentality.

 

 

The Dakota Access Pipeline: Another Case of Environmental Racism

The Dakota Access Pipeline: Another Case of Environmental Racism

There is another reason the Dakota Access Pipeline is going through the Standing Rock Reservation instead of going through another more densely populated area.  That reason is something called environmental racism.  It is very clear to me that if the Dakota Access Pipeline were going through a densely populated area occupied mostly by whites, there would be much more an outcry and there is already.

The Dakota Access Pipeline has received a significant amount of media coverage, although most of the best coverage has come from progressive or left-wing media via the Internet, instead of the mainstream media on TV or radio.  As usual, most of the coverage on mainstream media has lacked in the human interest aspect of this entire story and how this pipeline will significantly affect Native Americans.  Of course, ignoring key issues of Native Americans or any other people of power is the usual modus operandi of mainstream media.  It’s unfortunate that the first Americans are slighted this way.

They earned some credit for covering the Dakota Access Pipeline, although that coverage has been very useful for the pipeline.  They have failed to explain why the Dakota Access Pipeline is of such tremendous significance to the people who live there at Standing Rock.  They have also failed to deal with the issue of environmental racism, which I feel is the primary reason the Dakota Access Pipeline receives such lackluster coverage.

The issue of environmental racism is a subject that the mainstream media has always been uncomfortable with, much like every other type of racism.  It has gotten to the point where any talk of about racism of any kind is something mainstream media seems to avoid at any given turn.

I dare say if the Dakota Access Pipeline was going through Bismarck, North Dakota, as was originally intended, this entire story would be covered in a different way.

Ban on Muslim Immigration Will Make Americans Less Safe

Ban on Muslim Immigration Will Make Americans Less Safe

On the CBS morning news, former Deputy Director of the CIA, Michael Morrell, says that Donald Trump’s ban on Muslim Immigration to the United States will put Americans in more danger from terrorists than they were before.  He makes some very valid points in this interview.

Mr. Morrell says that none of the terrorist attacks committed on US soil since 9/11, and including the attack on the World Trade Center, would have been addressed by a ban on Muslim Immigration.  He says that none of these attacks would have been stopped if this ban on Muslim Immigration had been in effect at that time.

He says that the ban on Muslim Immigration will be the perfect recruitment tool for Isis, and plays into their hands because it plays perfectly into their narrative about the United States.  Mr. Morrell says that this ban on Muslim Immigration will make Americans less safe than before because it will further inflame radical Islamic extremists and give them some credibility.

Mr. Morrell also says that this ban on Muslim Immigration will not address a serious problem that already exists;  85% of terrorist attacks on Muslim US soil were committed by American citizens.  He says that of nearly 100 people indicted for terrorism by the federal government, 85% were American citizens.  Mr. Morel says that this ban on Muslim Immigration would have no effect on that, and does not address this crucial issue.

During this interview, Mr. Morrell also addresses the appointment of Steve Bannon, White House advisor to Donald Trump, to the National Security Council, something which Mr. Morel considers to be unprecedented. It would stop the Director of the Joint Chiefs of Staff from taking part in security briefings. He points out that this move would bring politics into a situation where it should not exist.

From a personal standpoint, the last thing I want is a white nationalist (a.k.a. white supremacist) be part of the security briefing. This change of protocol puts someone into a power position that should not even be part of the White House staff. Needless to say, Bannon will probably insert the same racist point of view against Muslims into these security briefings, that he did as editor-in-chief of Breitbart.

Bannon’s appointment to such an important position would be at the cost of the participation of the military because he would end the Joint Chiefs of Staff from having input into a situation where military expertise is crucial.  There is no way, members of the Trump administration should have this type of power that is unchecked by the military.

Since it is well-known that Steve Bannon has a racist point of view towards Muslims, he will most certainly tell President Trump that a ban on Muslim Immigration is a good idea, despite the fact that it has just the opposite effect that Donald Trump thinks it will.  Somewhere down the road, I would not be at all surprised if we were to find out that Steve Bannon was one of the chief proponents of the ban on Muslim Immigration to the United States.

At this crucial time, the last person that Trump needs to listen to is a white supremacist who has made no excuses for the fact that he hates Muslims.

Donald Trump Is a Believer in Eugenics. Should We Be Surprised?

Donald Trump Is a Believer in Eugenics.  Should we be surprised?

I wish I could say I was surprised when I watched this video of Donald Trump, but I wasn’t. It seems that Donald Trump believes in eugenics. Why am I not surprised? Should anyone be surprised?

Apparently, Donald Trump shares a common belief with Adolf Hitler; the so-called “science” of eugenics. Donald Trump believes that his business prowess if you can call it that, is attributed to the right genes. He also apparently believes that his genes give him a certain sense of entitlement to be President of the United States, even though this video doesn’t say that.

I find it extremely disturbing that a contender for president of the United States holds similar views as one of the worst mass murderers in the history of the world, Adolf Hitler. Eugenics was also used as an excuse to sterilize people with disabilities and others that some societies felt were inferior, and should not have children.  Does Donald Trump also believe that only certain people should be allowed to procreate?

Hopefully, this video, and others like it, will show people Donald Trump is a liar about who he is. I find this to be incredible that Donald Trump has not caught on yet that for every lie he tells, some piece of videotape from his past turns up to expose him as being dishonest to the American people whom he expressed to help him win the highest office in the United States.

For someone who believes that his superior genes give him an edge over other people, Donald Trump is ignorant to think that most of his bullshit can’t be proven to be just that, bullshit. One would think that his “superior genes” would help him to be less forgetful and a more skilled liar.
