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.

 

 

Racists Exposed By Refusing to Tip Waitress

Racists Exposed By Refusing to Tip Waitress

A couple of racists exposed themselves by refusing to tip a waitress of Hispanic roots. Then they actually had the gall to get angry when the young girls grandfather posted the check on Facebook, which the racist couple were stupid enough to sign. They act as though this young woman’s grandfather didn’t have the right to get angry when his granddaughter was not only stiffed on her tip, but had to endure have a very hateful message “we only tip citizens” written on the receipt. Oh, where do these people come from?

It turns out that this young woman was born and raised in the United States and her family heritage goes back three generations. It’s obvious that these two racists had no problem having their identity known by signing the check, which is a step above most racists who mostly wish to remain anonymous because they are cowards. After all, there is a reason members of the KKK wear masks and white robes.

The owner of the diner where the young woman works is to be credited because he stood up for his employee with the couple came back to cause more problems and to express their anger and this young woman’s grandfather for posting a photo of the signed check to Facebook. He 86’d the couple from his wet restaurant and said that if they ever came back he would have them arrested for trespassing.

However, this young woman is receiving an outpouring of support from a lot of people, which says something about how people basically feel that racists such as this are to be condemned, not condoned. Even though this story made me very angry when I first read it, in some ways it reinforces my belief that a lot of people are actually very good people.

I’m just glad to see racists exposed at every turn. They deserve it, and much more.
