This is “The Chosen One”?

I cannot conceive of a more appropriate image for BMT (Bottomless Moral Turpitude…..aka that which occupies the Oval Office) than this fish flip flopping as it dies a slow death on the dock of the world sea.

BMT flip flops on positions and issues and “promises” every time his lips move, and his cohorts just keep trying to make that fish stay flat on one side, for one day at least.  It’s hilarious.  But, no, it’s not….BMT holds the highest and most powerful office in the world mind you, so these indicators that he is in need of a 72 hour psychiatric watch is some serious “s___!”

We should all mark on our calendars August 22, 2019, when he declared, looking toward the sky, that he is The Chosen One.  And right beside that annotation on your calendar, put “King of Israel,” another of his declarations for that fateful date that may be one of historical infamy.

How the Republican leadership, as apparently heartless and evil as they are, would continue to support someone who cannot even consistently articulate their own sordid philosophies of life perplexes me beyond measure.

Whereas the 25th Amendment provides means to lead him away in a white jacket, the whores of the Senate are content to have an insane person representing them, rather than risk losing their cushy lifestyles in DC.

Can the world tolerate this fool, so in need of intervention and mental care, for another two years?

Newt Gingrich (Citizens Council emeritus) says NY Times 1619 Project is All a Big Lie

When I first saw this news yesterday on Yahoo News (not my only source of information mind you), I was less concerned with his LIES, but rather interested in the Comments to that news story.  Leave it to Yahoo News postings on such subjects to draw out all the older white “conservatives.”  (I have been trying to figure out why there are so many of these “misinformed” Caucasians on Yahoo, and I conjecture it has to do with Yahoo being around for a long time now, but all the youngsters, who would mostly be much more liberal in views, have long ago migrated to other news platforms.)

As I expected, the cheese the ex-Speaker through on the floor brought out all the rats.  I did not spend any time at all reading the Comments, as they all fell into categories that I expected, all revealing, as we who seek love and peace know, the level of emotionally charged ignorance typifying BMT’s (Bottomless Moral Turpitude……that which occupies the Oval Office) baseless base.  I can summarize their common retorts here, along with the truths:

  • The NYT is out to get Trump:  “WE are out to get Trump, indeed, as citizens concerned about any common criminal should be.”
  • Slavery has been around throughout world history, so let’s keep slavery in America in its proper context:  “Slavery in America was on par or worse than any in world history.  The effects of slavery are embedded in American society, and have for decades given Whites the privileges born from the worst kinds of cruelties inflicted on African-Americans.  The shadows of slavery are alive everywhere in this country today, and without Light being Shone on that Vile Darkness, this Nation will fail, meaning everyone in this Nation will fail.  A song by Curtis Mayfield from ‘back in the day,’…..<If there’s a Heaven or Hell, We’re ALL gonna go!>”
  • We need to just move on, as all this discussion about slavery and race relations is holding back progress for the US:  “Ain’t gonna happen my friends.  We are going to keep this in your face till you amend or are 6-ft under.  There can be no Peace when there is no Justice! Do not tell Blacks that they must be satisfied to “move ahead” being trillions of dollars behind Whites and others, when the foundation of this Nation was built on their backs.”
  • But Whites contributed to the building of this Nation, not just Blacks:  “Now how f’ing selfish is that statement!  No one is trying to demean the contribution of Whites that was morally righteous then, or now.  But any attempt at equivalency is an old and fallacious argument, because of the relative price Blacks paid versus Whites.”

The photograph above is of KKK in Dallas, Texas back in the 1920’s.  I have lived in Dallas most of my adult life, and as I discovered just recently, when I began my career my first “boss” was the son of Dallas’ District Attorney during the years that the KKK ran this city.  So we are well aware that many of the son’s, grandsons and granddaughters of such men are alive today, wearing those RED CAPS.  Keep wearing them, we like knowing who you are, for there is nothing worse than a racist with a smile.

 

 

1619- 2019 400 Years and Counting

Angela was her name, an African woman, who might very well have been of royalty back in her home region, we don’t know.  Regardless, we can assume rightly that she lived in a well-ordered society, one full of the sounds of life, of domestic animals, of toddlers and small children playing around villages, while older girls worked with their mothers, contributing and learning the skills from a timeless past, such as pounding yam and braiding and adorning their hair.  Older boys were learning the skills of manhood, including hunting, wrestling,  and becoming warriors.  Angela’s people were colorful, were light on their feet, and the sounds of drumming and the sounds of dancing often filled the air.  When anyone of Angela’s people fell ill, there were potions and wetted plants placed topically, and the incantations of the priest to relieve the pain and illness, often as effectively as any Western treatment today.  The priest was also readily available, for the price of a chicken or yams, to perform a divination reading for those with a question about their lives (which was at least as effective as any psychologist or spiritual advisor today).  Life was good for Angela.

We will never know how she came to be ripped from the Motherland, how she survived the Passage, how she was treated by the pirate sailors who took her and others, and in 1619 sold her and some 20-30 other Africans to European American planters in Jamestown, Virginia.  We do know that Angela and the hundreds of thousands of other African peoples brought to this land and placed in involuntary servitude and treated worse than any animal for hundreds of years, retained the strength and vibrancy of their ancestry, and without their magic –  America would have been, period.

The history of early Jamestown is readily available on the web, but in the last few days the New York Times has published what will become a publishing legacy to be read by generations to come.  Here is the link:

 

Just double click the above image, and just fyi you will have to at least enter your email and go through a few commercial “ads” to get to the article, but it is well worth it.  There are multiple essays, each quite lengthy, so be prepared to spend some time – quality time.

It should be apparent to anyone who is not themselves still shackled with the collar of racism, slaves to their emotional, primeval ignorance, that any claims of America being now in a post-racial society since President Obama was elected, are patently false.  Today we see the greatest rise of racism since the lynching days of Jim Crow.  America, the very foundation of this great experiment in humanity is now at risk.  Wake up!

A Case for Euro-American Studies in Universities

Does it not strike you, my fellow white American, that whereas there are various ethnic and gender studies programs in many universities and colleges across the US, there are really no equivalents (to my knowledge) that focuses on white people in America.

There are African-American programs, Asian programs and women’s programs – but no “white boy/girl programs.”

Does that not strike you as reeking of ignorance?  Here we are well into the 21st Century, and we white Americans think we know ALL about ourselves.  And from that perch we render judgement, demean, rob and pillage those who could be great allies within humanity.   The truth of the matter is we know very little, at least about that which should really count in our lives and relationships in a growing diverse, soon-to-be minority-majority Nation.

Sure, we know some of what was “taught” to us in school and later in college, for those who went.  Liberal college programs of course offered opportunities to study about European history and culture, and the white-washed versions of American history and government, et cetera.  But have you ever considered that you did not really learn about white America is its raw and unexpurgated nakedness?

Have you ever asked yourselves, what is white culture?  Is there one white culture in America?  Or questions like what really is the “white trash” class in America?  Or what traits and characteristics, driven by historical cultural antecedents and religious agents, has resulted in “us” being what we are today, especially with respect to living with those who are people of color?

By exploring for answers to such questions, perhaps we would find what caused and continues to cause, our hunger for controlling others, and our penchant for greed, violence and war.

Moreover, I think that within such studies, we should seek answers as to why so many white people are racially prejudiced, and of course, why so many are outright racists.  This topic begs critical analysis, for two reasons.

Presently those of us who are prejudiced and racist are creating a tension that may break the very core fibers of what America can be at sometime in the future:  a place of peace, of prosperity and acceptance for all interests and expressions of life.

Secondly, we white people really owe it to ourselves to shed the hard cocoon of enmity toward those who do not look like us (keep in mind we are mutants).  James Baldwin said once that (white) people’s history is impaled like a butterfly on a pin, which is even a better trope to make my point:  we white people will never realize our God-given potential as human beings while we continue to flutter, caught in the trap of our own hate.

So, this is the case I make for “white studies,” that we can begin to understand who we really are, and accept our place in a world of all colors and beliefs.

Also, I don’t know how much “room” there is left on Mt. Rushmore, but I do hope one day we will see a president of color, and of course, a female president there.

What could possibly go wrong in 2020?

I have always loved getting those little stickers as I leave the voting stations, the “I Voted” ones, you know.  My chest even sticks out a little more, at least in my mind.  This is a feeling that we all can partake of in this country, and at least in some other nations that right of voting is also enjoyed, although often surrounded by controversy.

I have no doubt that the election in 2020 will be surrounded by just that.  I have no doubt that BMT (aka…..crazy hair guy in the Oval Office, better known on my blog as Bottomless Moral Turpitude) will lose the popular vote by a wide margin, regardless of who the Dems put up to run.  However, as in 2016 the electoral college voting may very well  be that breathes new life into he who sucks life out of America.

The Republicans, aka Citizens Council, have totally stalled Congress from providing the level of funding to states needed to replace their voting machines and provide for backup paper ballots.  So, that is one problem.

Then there is the matter of alien forces diligently working to throw the swing states and the electoral college in their favor.  Russia obviously will want him re-elected, because many of the oligarchs stand to come out better in the long run with him remaining in office.  China and Iran likely will endeavor to push the vote toward the Dems.  So will the net result be a zero sum?  No one knows of course, but given the coziness of BMT with Vlad, and with BMT on record saying he would take information and assistance from Russia (again), the odds would tend to favor him.

I have no doubt at all that If BMT does not get the win, he and the Citizens Council will file many, many lawsuits to confuse the entire election decision, very likely the matter winding up at SCOTUS.  Well, we know how that will go.

So with all the excitement presently as to who will win the Dem nomination, ultimately it may not matter.  However, if the election seems to be going in BMT’s favor, I am equally fearful that Dems will pour into the streets in protests across the country, and do everything possible to block his “coronation.”  This could get very ugly, very fast.

I am always an advocate for having a Plan B.  I highly advise Americans who long for a new president, to have a Plan B, and be ready to put it into effect immediately at that time.

 

Trump’s Human Shield

Forgive me for breaking my vow of not using “his” name, as I had committed to using BMT (Bottomless Moral Turpitude).  Today though I wanted there to be no doubt about what my headline is about:  the President of the United States of America using Hispanics as a human shield to protect him from what really is inevitable, his conviction as a super criminal.

BMT will do anything to win the next election, not to facilitate any program for “making America great again,” rather to assure he stays in office, thereby delaying indictment on multiple offenses due to time elapsed since he committed certain crimes.  He knows that he faces criminal charges and probably the collapse of his empire built of Joker cards if a Democrat wins in 2020.

Backing up BMT is of course Moscow Mitch (I like Massacre Mitch better), who, along with other sorry ass human beings, aka Republican Senators (no all, but most) who only care about maintaining their office in a cushy situation in D.C., who could care less about any people of color, and Hispanics make a handy scapegoat based on the false logic and lies that BMT has promulgated the last three years.

So, it really doesn’t matter how many more brown lives are lost in the minds of these people, so long as their NRA/ scared white men back home get what they wave their guns about.

Most of our Presidents have been racists.  But I never thought I would live to see one who hides behind people of color to protect themselves.  BMT is no better – no he is worse – than Islamic terrorists, who have used innocent civilians to shield them.  The fact that he is our President amplifies this atrocity exponentially.  How many more will die as a result of his cowardice?

White men lost in the matrix of hate.

What is it about some white men that leads them to the worst kind of hate: hating another human being for the way she or he was born?  I do believe that if one could, by means of some super sleuth device that’s part time machine and part AI God, trace the origins of racism in white men in America, one would find they have been caught up in a matrix of naivety, ignorance and confusion that manifested a few hundred years ago, and has been a force that has lurked in the recesses of twisted minds since.

I have come to believe that racism in large part, is a form of mental illness afflicting a particular demography of white males within every generation in our country.  (Note: of course what I say applies to many white females, but thankfully they do not often express themselves by being creators of carnage.) I don’t think one can challenge an argument that America has many historical and cultural attributes, at the intersection of which is a mental “black hole” like those in deep space, that literally sucks in susceptible white men’s minds.  Once in the pull of the black hole, they cannot escape after passing a certain point.  Their mental and moral decay at that juncture radiates an anger that is entirely destructive, in fact, is evil itself.

Now racism is a form of hate based on an invalid Zeitgeist that has traveled through time, morphing along the way, generation by generation.  In the mid-Twentieth Century it was manifested profoundly in Germany, infecting a large part of the population, even though it had already taken hold here in AmeriKKKa long before.  Really this country has been built on hate, when one takes a serious look at our history.  Every immigrant group that has come to theses shores has hated the other group, with those arriving more recently receiving the brunt of the hate of those already here; and, then there is the matter of the genocide of First Peoples.  But the racism of white men hating people of color is a unique brand of such hate, giving them the “justification” to commit atrocities like at Wounded Knee, and the now countless mass murders over the last three years.

Here is one article asking if racism should not be considered a mental illness, or at least explored as such.  I agree with most of the article, as it lays out what to me is obvious, that one way to begin to “cure” racists is by exposing white racists to those persons of color in a way that can lead to person to person transaction.  I don’t know where one might begin to practice such an experiment at large, but within our prison industry might be a good starting point.  It is a fact that if two people of different “persuasions”  are forced to confront one another in a situation that depends on their mutual cooperation, they tend to begin to see the other as “human” and not a mere object to receive their hate.

I think this approach should be seriously looked into.  Of course, we can not use pleas of insanity by domestic terrorists or other racists that have harmed innocent people; but, we can attempt to root out the mental/spiritual cancer of racists and try to “fix them.”

Another “approach” to preventing or curing racism, I believe wholeheartedly could and should began in secondary education.  In previous posts I have suggested that a reason for so much of our problems as a country is the inability to critically analyze problems, or “problems.”  Using the  Socratic method of discussion, showing young people how to analyze and unravel the threads of a problem or condition, so they can separate the real threads from the perceived fallacious threads, would without a doubt contribute to youth who carry that ability to seek truth into adulthood.  Racism will not flourish where there is truth.
