Trump Team: Accessories Before and After the White Supremacy Facts https://www.tremr.com/ Staff Pick
What causes wars and loses elections is fear not hate; fear of losing something real or imaginary; fear of being overlooked, forgotten or ignored; fear of being left behind, thought stupid or not being able to keep up – but when fear and hate marry, equality and justice for all, are rarely the resulting issue.
Whether the rippling effect of a Trump election or not, in 2017 fear of equal opportunity, heritage of immigration diversity and becoming America’s new minority – has thrown its panicked gauntlet at the feet of America’s character.
American History is a continuing roller-coaster ride of memories from differing points of view. Rattled by suspicions of betrayal, drives many to betray, love thy neighbor as thyself.
Our history is in the making, and the maker, but only in America do we celebrate rebellion against our Constitution, which guarantees Freedom of Speech when in union with the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government.
As incompetent as Donald Trump is, it’s not just his dishonesty, or even his Pilate-like washing his hands of Afghanistan, turning it over to generals for endless war — it’s that, 67% of Republicans support his response to the domestic terrorism invading American cities.
When Native Americans protested the Dakota Access Pipeline to protect water, environment and their sacred land, they were shot with rubber bullets by North Dakota police, but when armed white supremacists attacked interdenominational clergy, who were obeying their permit to peacefully assemble, police protection was frozen in place, until Charlottesville citizens put themselves between the assaulted clergy and the Brown Shirts style menace.
Seven score and twelve years ago American families fought over preserving, protecting and defending a new nation conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men were created equal vs. the right for plantation owners fearful of economic loss to incite secession from America.
750,000 Americans died from decease, malnutrition, imprisonment and combat. In 2012 numbers, 7.5 million died for opposite definitions of America – in a war more temporarily muted by presidential Emancipation and assassination than ended by two generals exchanging personal interpretations of the greater good.
Still David Duke and company deny us, peace and goodwill toward all, and in 2017, statues are the latest excuse for incivility, gerrymandering, second-class citizenship, Hate Speech for Free Speech and murder, when an American’s skin is a tanner hue, religion non-Christian, gender female, politics not Conservative, sexual preference not hetero – when not Bannon/Gorka/Miller clones.
Arguably, Alt-Right and bigots are interchangeable, but the former portends fresh faces – not older Open Carry, carrying neo-Nazi and Confederate flags. From eye-witnesses to the University Tiki-torch parade Friday August 11, 2017, the Alt-Right are, Bannon babies — twenty-somethings being radically educated, not to be the tip of the spear, but the point of a sharpened cue stick.
The descendants of Jefferson Davis and Generals Lee & Stonewall Jackson have condemned the violence in the name of their ancestors, and joined the call to put Confederate statues in museums where they can be venerated by anyone wishing to relive the 19th century in 21st century air-conditioned comfort.
Any nation so conceived and so dedicated, was not lulled back into civil war because of a February 1915 Birth of a Nation, promoting good guy images of the Klan. Nonetheless, to be vigilant, we need emulate the nine Tougaloo College students who, on May 27, 1961, exercised their right to do homework in a Jackson Mississippi library. Their read-in illuminated what they were for — not forces they opposed.
What if, in the 1930s, no Germans attended Hitler rallies?
What if we fired McConnell’s GOP for having physically challenged Americans in peaceful assembly, dragged from their wheel chairs and removed from the halls of Congress?
What if we ask DHS why it’s halting funding plans for, Life After Hate, Sammy Rangel’s anti-white extremism group?
It’s not about statues. Racism is not symbolism. It’s people so fearful of national evolution, they elect international isolation.
People get ready, there’re trains a comin’ – one from Station Realization and the other, the madness of King Trump’s McConnell Courtiers. One fueled by self-righteousness, the other empowered by the foundation of hope – each destined to trigger signaling switches, at our national station in life.
On the left track, the Express train, pulling in somewhat disabled, but on time. On the right side of the platform, the Local, running late, in support of Congress debilitating Medicaid, while serving up hacking passes on a Gowdy Trey.
This is not a railway do-over race against billionaire pharmaceutical and health insurance Hot Shots (for each train clickety-clacks along its track of choice, with independently designated time tables for transporting and transferring passengers) – but it is a journey to the Township of Truth Be Told.
How many more will choose to get on board, Left or Right, and how many will continue to opt out — to straddle the third rail — is up to Free Will. But increasingly there’s room on the right, to elbow through the crowd of boisterous wingers. Across the platform, however, the Express line, increases capacity for healthy realization: the hypocrisy of politically protecting those without economic needs punching truth with extreme projectiles from podium of real Fake News — is too much baggage for the trip to Reason.
Ultimately destination for both trains is the same, but, like, Bull Run and Manassas, labeled alternatively, Home of the Brave and MAGA. Nonetheless, when each train reaches their Base of the Y on track to Future, the direction chosen can foreshadow the life journey yet left to live, reflect a life destined for the rails, or just reveal how much time one chooses to be taken for a ride.
Passengers bombing foreign children, denying needy American children, or emulating money changers of old, be prepared for blinking lights ahead, warning: conductors may yet demand, show me the money whether in your PAC suits, off-shore accounts or MIA tax returns.
Instead of election draining change, constructive compromise was annihilated and independent investigative thinking exposed evolution of re-cycled disabling disgust for differences.
On the Express, all are welcome to share nurturing through curiosity and enlightened perception and preparation, for the bullet trains a comin’:
- Disabling of America by Opioid Addiction
- Denying health equality for Medicaid Expansion
- MIA Executive Orders to preserve, protect and defend the United States of America from hacking by foreign & domestic powers
Both known and unknown Malafort and Kushner travel mates sway 60% of Americans to detrain at stations assuring benefits for, Pre-Existing Conditions, Opioid Overdose Prevention, and Medicare for All.
At the Deborah Lipstadt v. David Irving Avenue stop, passengers can transfer to the Local for Alternative Facts on Track 45. However, switching too right, expect delays in The Trump Tunnel of Secrets, where preyed on infrastructure is endangered from Flynn-flam and Russian Roulette.
Boarding for the Land of the Donald Free, however, passengers can ADAPT for more positive options to secrecy and polarizing resistance, because all the Express stops, Left, support Mueller’s probe for truth and accelerate focus on issues that unite us: family life, economic liberty and the pursuit of personal happiness.
Isn’t this why we boarded the train to Independence?
Nonetheless, when very nice people put their faith in those faking out all of us, truth and justice appear as a blur flashing by our window seat, unless, trained by the mental health of Dr. Benjamin Franklin, we, hang together.
Passengers respecting justice for all, don’t need a ticket to board the Express to Progress, but Caution: since European immigrants invaded Native Americans: choosing between being a citizen voting for responsibility and ethics on all railroads to Washington vs. heading the wrong way on the Right track, has too often required a disproportionate sacrifice by hyphenated Americans – particularly women, LGBTQ, the disabled and economically disadvantaged, blessed with color. Yet it is not enough to redundantly media headline political podium puppets, without streaming, we are the engine driving the train.
For the Union, you just get on board.
