Angry White Men In Charlottesville Against The Rest Of America

August 12, 2017

The news today from Charlottesville showcases what is wrong with angry white men. They need to let everyone know they are really upset about their slave-holding heroes, in the form of statues, being removed from public property.  And yes, you uneducated hicks, slavery was America’s original sin.

White men just seem incensed about everything these days.  They can no longer beat women without the law stepping in, they need to respect gay legal rights in the country, and can not demand that brown-skinned people just ‘go home’.    Times are rough for Bubba and his big-bellied buddies.

So they decided to gather in Virginia and put on a display about how upset they are with grave injustices they have had to endure.  In the process they killed three people, injured others, and demonstrated why they must be stopped.

The angry white men gathered in Charlottesville were goons on steroids.  The bigoted white nationalists, many of which I need to point out were mimicking soldiers in the way they were dressed, were working over-time to incite violence.  I might add if they had ever worked over-time at their education they would not have such a sorry place in their family genealogy.  Looking at the coverage on the news today you just know many of those family trees would be more like a wreath.  How many of them did find dates at their family reunions?

The vile words and antics of the white angry men were confronted by patriotic ones who showed up to proclaim what America looks like in the face of putrid and rancid bigotry.

But it was just not the angry white men who made for a profile in national embarrassment today.   An equally humiliating experience for this nation was the limp-dicked response of President Trump to this mess.

Let us recall that once news broke of a terrorist attack in Paris in November 2015, Trump immediately tweeted that he was praying for “the victims and hostages.”    It was only minutes following a a shooting at a gay Orlando nightclub in June 2016, when Trump tweeted he was “right on radical Islamic terrorism.”

So where was the Muslim hater today today when a protest led by white nationalists who arrived with torches and chants in Charlottesville already on Friday night turned violent?  Why did it take so long for the modern-day Mussolini to tweet a response?

What was galling on top of galling was Trump, who can not stop tweeting on the toilet any other morning, kept quiet even as hate-monger David Duke, the former leader of the Ku Klux Klan, dumped his sewage out.  Duke declared Charlottesville is a “turning point” for a movement that aims to “fulfill the promises of Donald Trump.”

It was only hours later that Trump was able to feebly give a tepid and mealy-mouthed statement without using words such as “white supremacy” or “white nationalism.  He plays so cozy with the vile angry white men who are his political pawns.  They were so easily played in the election for the saps they prove themselves to be.

But others across the national political landscape today did speak out.

Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee tweeted: “ ‘White supremacy’ crap is worst kind of racism-it’s EVIL and perversion of God’s truth to ever think our Creator values some above others.”

Senator Marco Rubio, and Senator Cory Gardner both urged the president to use the words “white supremacists” and to label this as a terrorist attack.

Senator John McCain released a strongly worded statement that said, in part: “White supremacists and neo-Nazis are, by definition, opposed to American patriotism and the ideals that define us as a people and make our nation special.”

Senator Hatch tweeted: “We should call evil by its name. My brother didn’t give his life fighting Hitler for Nazi ideas to go unchallenged here at home.”

What we witnessed today was simply wretched.  It was so bad it forced the hand of the governor to declare a state of emergency.  I was thinking as events unfolded that some of the game plan for North Korea might have been used as a training exercise against the white goons in Charlottesville today.

As I kept being updated on the news I thought back to a statement made by Abraham Lincoln.   I knew the gist of it and needed to locate it so the wording would be accurate and here it is. This is how I feel today.

“As a nation, we began by declaring that ‘all men are created equal.’ We now practically read it ‘all men are created equal, except negroes.’ When the Know-Nothings get control, it will read ‘all men are created equal, except negroes, and foreigners, and Catholics.’ When it comes to this I should prefer emigrating to some country where they make no pretense of loving liberty – to Russia, for instance, where despotism can be taken pure, and without the base alloy of hypocrisy.”
