Where do we grow from here under the White Supremacist-in-Chief?!

Like the majority of Americans, I am irate, revolted and saddened by what happened in Charlottesville. Three people lost their lives and dozens were seriously injured by a car that plowed into them, driven by a Nazi.

As a result, it’s possible that for the first time in many white people’s lives, they felt terrified theirs would be extinguished for publicly denouncing racism, Nazi’s and the KKK. Everyone involved in the opposition protest should be applauded for their courage and willingness to risk their lives to stop hate, period.

Yet, something is gnawing at me, white privilege. Every single day in America, African Americans live side-by-side with dread that they won’t make it through the day. They can be pulled over by a racist cop, say the wrong thing to a shop clerk, or walk down the street with their hands in their pockets minding their own business, and be shot to death. African Americans are forced to raise their kids differently. White people can move about America without looking over their shoulders, fearing danger. African American children can’t. At young ages, strategies are implemented for dealing with police, how to carry themselves, what to and not to say, and a thousand other things that white people can’t fathom.

Though long overdue, it is time to admit that African Americans are not treated equally under the Constitution. If we’re going to heal as a nation, now is the time to admit that white privilege is real. If you’re a white person, acknowledging that being white affords you privilege is the first step towards healing.

We need to come together now more than ever as activists and humans. Trump is exacerbating racial tensions. He’s a Nazi sympathizer and a white nationalist. Look at his response to what happened in Charlottesville, “Trump Saw ‘Many Sides’ While Some Republicans Saw White Supremacy, Domestic Terrorism.” Shortly after taking office, Trump took white supremacists off the terror watch list. Hate crimes continue to surge, bullying in schools is rising. White hate groups are emboldened and inspired by Trump, and commit crimes in his name, AND HE FUCKING LOVES IT.

Trump and Bannon, and the whole administration is banking on a civil war between the races. They want it so badly, their toothpick sized pricks have semis, sans Viagra. Nobody is stopping the Trump family, the Trump Administration, or Donald Trump. The GOP has turned an alarming blind eye. Patriotism under Trump, a sadistic narcissist, means worshiping him and kowtowing to his bullying. It means being afraid of all non-white Christians and scapegoating other ethnic and religious groups.

People that continue begging Trump to denounce White Supremacists need to wake the fuck up and stop—just fucking stop. Trump has shown us who he is, 100% racist. If we want to stop Trump, we must get him and Pence impeached, and rid America of the infestation that is his entire administration, family and appointments.

While writing this, a news alert popped up with this headline, “Trump denounces white supremacist groups by name after Virginia violence.

Racism is evil and those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans,” Trump said in a statement to reporters at the White House.

Feel better? Me neither, because it’s meaningless.

A real leader, the Governor of Virginia slammed White Supremacists in Charlottesville, saying, “SHAME ON YOU! WE’RE STRONGER THAN YOU,” and spoke to Trump, asking him to “Stop the hate speech, stop the rhetoric, we have got to bring people together.”

Another leader, Charlottesville Mayor Blasts Trump’s ‘Repeated Failure’ To Denounce White Supremacists, Michael Signer Mayor Charlottesville, Virginia

“Look at the campaign he ran. Look at the intentional courting … on the one hand, of all of these white supremacists, white nationalist groups,” Signer said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” as he discussed the deadly violence that afflicted his city on Saturday sparked by a “Unite the Right” rally.

“And then look on the other hand at the repeated failure to step up and condemn, denounce, silence, put to bed, all of those different efforts just like we saw yesterday. This is not hard,” he said.

“There are two words that need to be said over and over again ― domestic terrorism and white supremacy,” he said.

Yet, another leader, the Vice Mayor, “‘You’re their leader’: Charlottesville vice-mayor calls out Trump’s silence on white supremacists.”

They can continue to come, but our community will not break,” said Bellamy, should white supremacists “under the guidance of their president, number 45” decide to return to Charlottesville, the people will not stand for it.

The White Supremacist in Chief has no intention of bringing Americans together. Rather, he wants us as divided and afraid of each other as possible. Let’s prove him wrong.

    The words coming out of this Puke in Chief’s blowhole are moot & meaningless. It took “someone” (way too late,also, too) to take him aside & verbally FORCE him to say them. What a disgusting waste of ‘human’ flesh.

        Ain’t it the truth. Trump’s voice makes me almost physically ill. I can’t stand it!

        Re the shoes, sometimes a huge shock literally knocks one out of his/her shoes. Years ago I wrote a book about WWII bomber crews. Never forgot a vet telling me that they had been warned before bailing out to take their shoes off and tie them together with shoelaces around their necks because when the chute opened the shock would make the shoes fly off their feet. This looks like the same thing.

        Red,
        Neat story, but they were told an untruth. The forces involved in a car crashing into a pedestrian are far greater than a parachute opening, even a high-speed opening under an old round. I’ve done that, and gotten torn intercostal cartilage, and kept my shoes on. It’s something about the relaxation of the foot as everything else tenses up when you’re hit. Don’t know why, but it’s very common.

    • Redhand, Thanks for sharing that. I had no idea, but it makes sense.

      I’m so screwed if there’s a scenario in which I die and my shoes fall off. I can’t die naked or without shoes.

        Remember, Plummet, we didn’t have “shoes” on while pop-stopping under those old rounds; we had bazillion-eyelet boots laced to the top, then the trailing ends encircling the outside leather, and finally neatly “bloused.”

        I do remember the blousing pulling up my calves, though…

        Not “pair”. Look at it again. That is a scene in motion. The car is still moving. Two bodies are in the air falling to the ground or onto the car. Move is happening in front of the car. The single shoes behind the car are also – in motion! The wearer was hit so hard the impact ripped their shoes off like it was a battlefield.

Shit, last week I read that one of the top ranking GOP senate leaders said that Trump could push the 2020 election back if he wanted to. Of course, he can’t. Still.

    • It’s so true, Roket— The Orange Menace (good one), is out of control. Nothing seems to get the GOP to wake up. I understand they’re as self-dealing and narcissistic as Trump, but oh my fucking God, millions of Americans are outraged. Trump’s hit an all time historical low in the latest polls. I want to scream, IMPEACH, MORONS. Not that it would help

    I give up trying to give a link so here’s a summary: later that night, trump retweeted a post from jack posobiec, noted right-wing ‘pizzagate’ conspiracy troll about how, over the weekend there had been 39 shootings and nine deaths in chicago (dog whistle for black-on-black crime)
    that had been supposedly ignored by the national media while attention was only being paid to the incident in charlottesville.
    posobiec has been described as a member of the ‘alt-right’ but because he says he has spoken out against bigotry and hate groups.he says he prefers the term ‘new right’. besides his advocacy of the ‘pizzagate’ hoax, he has also been connected with an attempt to discredit anti-trump protesters by planting a ‘rape melania’ sign at one of their protests, anti-muslim tweets against clinton aide huma abedin and harassing her in person. he also tends to fall in step with the ‘alt-right’ views on immigrants in general and their hatred of feminists.
    posobiec later thanked trump for his retweet which actually seems to be a nod-and-a-wink to people like posobiec that regardless of my words, i’m with you. mind you, i just may be reading into things.
    again, sorry for my previous fkups.
