Of Charlottesville, Trump, Nationalism, and Hypocrisy

Posted by Troy on 14th August 2017 in Current Events, Human Nature, Political

Everyone is jumping over Trump over not denouncing white supremacy.  Let’s have an HONEST discussion.

What happened in Charlottesville?  A group of reprehensible people (white supremacists) came in contact with an equally group of reprehensible people (the “antifa” movement).

Now, what would be the logical conclusion when you have two groups of moronic, single-minded, and violent groups who hate one another meet?  Gee…I wonder if they will clash?  Yep.  That’s what the hell is going to happen.  This is why a competent mayor or police chief could have kept the groups separated.  Of course, they didn’t.  Interesting.  It is almost as though they wanted violence.  Why would they want violence?  So they could link it to Trump.  Much like when protesters showed up at Trump events to instigate confrontations.  Regardless of what was said or who threw the first punch, it was because Trump inspired violence.

So why didn’t Trump call out the white supremacists?  You know… I don’t recall one time that Obama called out white supremacists.  Obviously, he loved the KKK.  Do you see how moronic the point is?  No doubt, the Black Panthers supported Obama over McCain or Romney.  And yet, no one demanded Obama denounce the Black Panthers.  Why not?  Well, on one hand, it is probably because it is obvious that a well-heeled person would naturally look down their noses at brutes such as the Black Panthers OR the neo-nazis–as the average politician looks down their noses at ALL of us.  As such, why bother asking someone to denounce them?  When was the last time someone was called upon to denounce child molesters?  YOU DON”T NEED TO DENOUNCE certain groups of people.  They are denounced by default.  The other reason is that, by forcing someone to denounce a group, you make them seem as though they are secretly sympathetic to that group.  As the man said, “I just want him on video denying having sex with a goat.”

Second of all, this was not an act of terrorism.  Sorry.  This is a crime.  An act of terrorism is done to affect the political environment and to make people scared to go about their day to day life.  On some level, it is a planned event.  This appears to be a murder.  This does not appear to be an act of terrorism.  It could be that the guy’s declarations will change my opinion, but murder does not naturally equate to terrorism.  Sometimes, murder is murder.  Someone that takes a gun into a school and shoots the place up is a mass murderer.  Someone that does the same thing shouting, “If you want common core, these kids are better off dead!” and kills the same kids, is a terrorist.  Get the difference?

I don’t remember anyone having an issue with Obama after San Bernardino, after Ferguson, after Baltimore, after Fast and Furious, after Benghazi, after they blamed the Tea Party for bombings time and time again or the shooting for Giffords, and on and on and on.  At every time where he demonized the cops when he had no information to go on.  When he referred to his grandmother…the WOMAN WHO BOTHERED TO RAISE HIM after his OWN father abandoned him as a “typical white woman…” not once did anyone question his racial bias.  Why is that?

So we talk about nationalism.  Well…what is a nation?  As words matter.  As definitions matter.  A nation is any group of people that identify with each other.  Isn’t it interesting that only one group seems to have a problem when they nationalize?  Black people acting as a nation?  That’s cool.  Native Americans acting as a nation?  That’s super mega cool!  LGBLT (kidding… LGBTQIA) Super Uber Fabulous Mega Cool!!!!!  HELLLLLOOOO!!!!!  But white people acting like a nation?  Daaaaawg…that’s just racist!  Why is that?  Frankly, it is because one is politically beneficial for the Left (as supported by the media) and one is not.  I also think it’s interesting that viewing all Americans as a single nation is also soooooooo not cool.  Why?  Because keeping us divided, yet again, helps the Left.  Bonus points as being united as a nation would also preclude open borders.  Can’t have that, now can we?

I can find many examples of people calling out white supremacists.  I can’t find hardly any people calling out black supremacists.  Black power… oh…we won’t say anything about that.  White power…daaaaawg…that’s just racist.  Now, you can say that it is because white supremacists view themselves as superior to others, whereas the black supremacist does not.  You are fooling yourself.  I cannot say that I know that much about the black power movement.  The white supremacy movement, however, is rooted in the science of Charles Darwin, who had a desire to prove that the white man was more evolved than the other races because they had a larger brain pan.  This was used as proof positive and justification for the colonization of the other races of the world.  But the same people that condemn the Right as racists love to elevate Darwin’s theory as de facto God… when Darwin clearly states that whites are superior to blacks and whereas God did not create anyone inferior to anyone else.  You will not find anywhere where Jesus says otherwise.  But let me assume that black supremacists do not believe that they are genetically superior to whites.  Just by the very nature of the argument, they must think that they are morally superior.  This cannot be denied.  For if you believe that the races are truly equal, there can be no X power, no Y power.  There can only be conversation.  There can only be reconciliation.  They cannot even be nationalization, because why would you bother nationalizing if we are the same?  If we are equal?

So, why might we see a rise of nationalism or even white nationalism?  Did it ever occur to people that when you separate people into groups and you demonize one group and elevate another group, that this might be a side effect?  If you are told time and time again that white people are the devil, that whites are inherently racists, that you have white privilege and on and on and on and on… did it ever occur to anyone that there are plenty of white people that get up every day and go to work and struggle to make ends meet…and that don’t feel like they have white privileged.  They feel like they bust their ass and get demonized just the same.  Over time, the drone of “white is evil” stops becoming effective or even encourages them to nationalize.  In fact, the racism of the past is a direct cause of why blacks decided to nationalize int he first place.  When a group is demonized, when they feel they are getting the shaft, the nationalize as they believe that there is safety in numbers.  When did the KKK form?  During the Reconstruction Era…when most whites were precluded from voting or holding office.  How did that work out?  The KKK and Jim Crow were all direct results from the backlash.  And the process is repeating.

Charlottesville was a non-event.  Two violent groups came together, and violence happened.  Anyone with half a brain could have predicted it.  Anyone with 51% of a brain could have prevented the violence.  Regardless, it is not worthy of the amount of covering the event is getting.  Let’s be honest, nothing Trump could have said would have gotten him out of trouble.  Nothing he could have said past, “I obviously caused this by being President…so I’m resigning as President of the United States” would have sated them.  Even that would not be enough as the media would have shifted the blame as being equally attributable to Mike Pence.

Trump was correct to call out anyone who starts violence.  White supremacists have a right to assemble and to free speech.  They do not have a right to run over people.  Antifa people have a right to assemble and free speech.  They do not have a right to attack people or set cars on fire.  Black Lives Matter have a right to assemble and to free speech.  They do not have a right to burn cities and loot.  NAMBLA people have a right to assemble and free speech.  They do not have a right to molest children.  In all cases, I do not attack the right to have an idea or even to express it.  Because in each case, I believe in my logic and intellect to counter their arguments.  This is why I do not fear ideas or groups.  Any group that seeks to deny these rights are pathetic, small-minded, fascist, and un-American.

Long Live the Constitution!
