So pipe bombs for Soros, Obama, Clinton, CNN—are we surprised? I mean this is what we want right—or at least what any budding fascist would want.
Today’s news about domestic terrorism should come as no surprise.
By far and away most domestic terror is caused by the right and that was before Trump and his enablers unleashed the evil genie to roam freely, with the White House blessing, amongst us.
With Donald Trump encouraging his supporters to beat up protesters at his rallies, the dehumanizing of anyone not on board with white supremacy, encouraging GOP politicians to assault journalists, rationalizing the neo Nazis at Chancellorsville who ended up killing people, encouraging his supporters to disobey judges, especially if they happen to be Mexican. When you have a openly avowed nationalist as President, whose supporters have similar views about certain races, the afflicted, homosexuality as the Nazi’s in Germany in 1933—then you cannot be surprised when such mindless and unwarranted hate turns to violent acts.
So of course it should be no surprise that antisemitism has increased by 57% since Trump became President and unleashed his storm troopers on to society, a society were hate is becoming normalized. Every day we see viral clips of the police brutalizing people for breathing whilst being black, or whites verbally assaulting, or calling the police on people who appear to be foreign. This is not normal. This is not acceptable—yet with every word from the President… this is the new normal. Likewise it should be no surprise that hate crimes have been steadily increasing.
Hate crimes on Latino’s have increased by 50% in California alone The dislike of immigrants by the GOP –which is caused by stunning ignorance about both the economic value of immigrants and the fundamental cause of illegal immigration. The main culprit? That would be the US Chamber of Commerce who want the cheap labor and refuse to outlaw it—but yet the same congressman who are funded by this group are given carte blanche to incite the pitch fork mob—all so that that GOP have their cake and eat it.
As for being a women, do not expect any respite there… with men using Donald Trump as a role model for the acceptability of sexual assault the USA Government refusing to allow the FBI to properly investigate Kavanaugh and his gang. If Kavanaugh had been wrongly accused he would have welcomed, demanded, a thorough investigation—an investigation that would have required hundreds of interviews in order to substantiate an obvious pattern that was visible when one viewed the stories of the three women and their peer group at that time. With the White House now run by white misogynist supremacists and now with a supreme court with two probable “pussy grabbers” do not expect the path to enlightenment to be adopted until after a lengthy trip back to the dark ages—for we are now venturing back into the heart of darkness.
Virtually all Domestic terror attacks since 2010 have come from the American right, anti-government, anti-abortion (because fundamentalist pro-lifers are actually pro-death) anti blacks etc. — or Americans inspired by the Quran. This “teaming up” is not a co-incidence, since the far right in America, who often proclaim themselves to be Christians—when in fact their actions are the polar opposite of the teachings of Jesus.
Thus and possibly because of massive ignorance about what Christianity actually stands for, they really are far more closely aligned with a different prophet, a different religion, that by its nature is more right wing and seemingly provides more leeway in interpreting how one can go beyond peaceful actions.
As America moves to the right, they get ever closer to values of Saudi Arabia—and as the President himself becomes more aligned with and respecting of—tyrants, (N Korea, Russia, the Philippines) we will also see how the White House rationalizes the butchering of Khashoggi. Trump clearly could not give a flying fig about a Journalist for the Washington Post (or any human being), but rather mourns the murder as ‘worst cover-up in history’.
But the beauty of Trump is the transparency of who he is and of the people who enable him. Are they indeed deplorable? Well you decide once you are armed with the facts… . The rest of us can see with clarity how such individuals would have behaved if they lived in Germany in 1933. The German people had two excuses at that time 1) they were coming off the great depression that had ravaged their lives and savings 2) they probably did not foresee that tribal hate would lead to the genocide of Jews, Poles, Gypsies, homosexuals, Freemasons and the disabled etc.—leading to their own destruction.
What excuse do Americans have in 2016 and now in 2018—Americans who presumably were taught history in school—and thus should have the benefit of historical hindsight? What excuse do Americans have who have access to countless dystopian movies and books—none of which has ever depicted salvation coming from a fascist, a racist or a bigot—Deliverance will never come from such ignorance. So what is the excuse?
