Some People Just Don’t Get It…[DOT 4/1/20]

There is always a tweet:

…says the guy who has spent over $115,000,000 on golf which is millions more in three years than Obama spent in eight.

…most of that money went directly into his pocket as the fucking owner of the private golf clubs at which he golfs…

…one of which he sat in quite comfortably yesterday whilst on vacation – with his phone in his hand baiting Iran into war over war crimes he committed by blowing up 10 people without approval from Congress

…which is apparently OK to those who are against Americans’ right to protest so much that they use their right to protest protesting by burning their fucking sneakers…and smashing their coffee machines

They sure know how to “own the libs”…

They’ll stand for a flag without knowing what it represents. They’ll appreciate those who they claim fight for freedom when the freedoms they would see them fighting for include the freedom to not be able to vote, the freedom to not be able to be gay or trans, the freedom to not have control over their own bodies (and be deemed murderers) or healthcare, the freedom of religious intolerance, and the free-est freedom of all – the one true freedom enshrined in the fabric of America – of which all other freedoms are but pale shadows…to whit, the freedom to be (or at least act like) a heterosexual white christian male of means…and even that freedom comes with its limitations whether or not they’re pandered to.

Who is to blame? Centrists blame those on their left for not voting for the middle way. The leftists blame the centrists for, well, blaming the leftists instead of the right…all while the right move further and further to the right all the way to the point that white supremacists rigged the game…from the SCOTUS to the municipal courts…from gerrymandering districts to suppression of votes to the racist-as-fuck electoral college that somehow still exists…all the way to a POTUS whose failed business venture after failed business venture allowed him to fail upwards.

To the point that a lame wannabe internet troll with no skill, no smarts, and no BRAIN is willing to hurl your sorry asses into war without thought of the consequences…without approval from the house…and without stepping outside of his private club he is illegally putting your money into.

That is not what I meant by, “some people just don’t get it.” What I actually meant was that the editors and authors here at Deadsplinter never should trust me enough to leave me alone…

…they really should know better by now…

  1. There’s plenty of blame to go around. At the top of the list are the Kochs, the Mercers, and the rest of the robber barons who want to continue enjoying the new Gilded Age in America. Because this is ultimately a class struggle that uses racism as a tool to divide people with common interests. It’s not a new tactic, W.E.B. Du Bois wrote about it back in 1935:

    “Most persons do not realize how far [the view that common oppression would create interracial solidarity] failed to work in the South, and it failed to work because the theory of race was supplemented by a carefully planned and slowly evolved method, which drove such a wedge between the white and black workers that there probably are not today in the world two groups of workers with practically identical interests who hate and fear each other so deeply and persistently and who are kept so far apart that neither sees anything of common interest.

    It must be remembered that the white group of laborers, while they received a low wage, were compensated in part by a sort of public and psychological wage. They were given public deference and titles of courtesy because they were white.”

    There’s a great episode of Politically Reactive with Pastor Michael McBride from a few years ago that talks about setting us all free from Whiteness.

    For what it’s worth I trust you enough to leave you alone, and at the helm!

  2. The depressing part is for as eloquent and factual this entire monologue was, the people who need to read and hear it consciously choose to ignore it. Not the opinions and conclusions, mind you – they willfully overlook the objective evidence. SMH.
