Knowing Where We Are and Who are the Real Halloween Monsters – OpEdNews Headline

Posted on

Knowing why we’re addicted to Horror Movies, hung up on how others enjoy sex, defining each other by our bank accounts and loving easily accessible guns, our 2018, October Surprise – wasn’t.

Bombs sent to those with whom we disagree; bonus smirks from bankers possessing, stay out of jail cards ten years after Bush/Cheney’s Corporatism co-created a Great Recession for 95% of Americans – and Pittsburgh gun violence, reminiscent of Charleston, reaffirm, our need for self-reflection.

Those now seemingly possessed by a heightened, more easily radicalized, sense of powerlessness, empowered by residue of foreign hacked election stealing, aided and abetted by social media platforms as bottom-line focused as international financial institutions masquerading as American – are addicted anew by the highest ranking self-proclaimed, Nationalist, in America.

No, Tom Bossert, Gun Violence is not a political issue, but a life-threatening one – and if we can’t purge ourselves of Open Carry, cleansed our politics of trumped idolaters and purify America of the dirty money masking demons as heroes, then we must at least become champions of electing to diminish the rising anti-American fear of Jewish-Americans, anti-diversity hate of African-Americans – and anti-cultural differences still branding Native, Asian and Latino Americans with the hypocrisy of anti-female Republicans.

The Trump Family didn’t originate avarice, any more than their clan leader originated what he needs Americans to become to impregnate America.

Until we internalize, it’s not banks but bankers protecting non-empathetic Boards; not just the self-deluded propelling tragedy with Second Amendment misinterpretations interrupting life with murderous gun violence and intimidating bombs – and it’s not just Donald Trump who is responsible.

All are accountable, not just marionettes droning nonsensical conservative talking points about, we need safe boarders, with little concern for those living within our borders enduring limited means.

Let’s not be Mike Pence taking the 5th on the sidelines – supreme clones of self-righteous supremacists – Congressional Republicans thinking themselves gods, controlling an administration of cuspidors spitting back onto the innocent, the vile rhetoric of fear and hate mongers.

Whether uncompromising Left or radicalized Alt-Right – both elevate Donald Trump.  The former as demagogue we can beat like a misogynist Piñata filled with Party bigotry, and the latter, a Johnny-Come-Lately Ku-Klux-Klan second coming, profiting off Americans, on both sides of centered civil debate.

Twitter Trump, despite teleprompter performances, is not remotely worthy of being hailed as the American Dream come true, for he cares no more for those who elected him than he does for his fantasized Caravan adaptation.

Every earthly hue has long believed in an America peopled by a saving grace, refugees, migrants and immigrants have sought, since the Pilgrims invaded the home of Native-Americans.

Time to admit where we are and that We the People got us here.

While there is little doubt that those among us who are, whether willfully or helplessly, more susceptible to a throw-back of Europe’s 1930s despot rallies, our real Halloween monsters are pawn manipulators costuming inhumane themes to justify righteousness as ordained exclusively for Caucasians – like Mitch McConnell’s Kroger constituent proclaiming, Whites don’t kill whites – unless, it seems, they are Jewish.

The deadliest attack on Jewish-Americans in the history of a united America aligned in globalism seventy-three years ago to defeat the fear fueled hate that still, in 2018, emboldens violent racists, self-aggrandizing bankers and villainous politicians.

On Tuesday 6 November 2018, we can choose to elect the America we insist we are:  a melting pot magnet simmering with justice for all – perhaps embracing more Emma Lazarus, than Reihan Salam.

Beware, however, our Mid-Term results may ignite more violence.  How we respond to it will determine where America is and from where our monsters have come.

On 12 September 2001, I drove to Gettysburg, not knowing why I was drawn to do so.  Since Donald Trump’s escalator descension of us and ascension to the presidency, I’ve realized the purpose of my journey:  at arguably the greatest violent expression of American division, there was cathartic motivation for unity and justice for all.

God knows where we are and who Trump is – it’s time for America to embrace this wisdom, knowing that it must begin with the reasonable, and forgiving, among us – exposing the money funding fear and hate into Domestic Terrorism.

Trump Team:  Accessories Before and After the White Supremacy Facts 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.

Although, not the light of the world, we are the dawns early light, eclipsing the bully’s hate, the politician’s fear and waging of endless war, in silence.
