Kahomono - It Means Lucky

Random musings on whatever subject strikes my fancy that day.

Nazis Again

Or as Pumpkin calls them, very fine people.

Some of last year’s national shame — CNN 

They’re marching again today in Charlottesville and Washington, DC.  Last year they only killed one person.  I’m sure they would like to expand on that total this time around.  I hope they fail.  In fact, I hope every single person supporting these racist displays fails in every single way imaginable.

All the articles I read wringing their hands over how Pumpkin supporters never waver no matter how much corruption and graft he flaunts, or badly his policies damage them economically.  In my Google+ stream, I have a collection I post these stories to: It’s the Racism, Stupid!

I am eager for America to prove me wrong.  My expectations are nice and low, however, so I am unlikely to be disappointed.

Sarcasm Works

This is sarcastic, not that a lot of Twitter commenters were wise to that fact.

And the point underlying the sarcasm, that Trump supporters are human tire fires who are not worthy of understanding or dialog, is spot on!  The only way to deal with them is to shun them now and to vote your own – and America’s – self-interest in November.  The racists, Nazis and grifters need to be sent crawling back under their rocks.

 

#WhileBlack

In a racist nation, is it possible to live while black (LWB)?

Racists have decided that the way to express their hatred of black and brown people is to call the police.  For every damn thing.  Who knows, maybe they get lucky and a racist cop shoots one?

So the police get called if black or brown people are having a cookout.  Or napping in the lobby of their dormSmoking a cigaretteGoing homeBeing at home.

The dreary list goes on.

The world is not white.  White people are just now starting to realize that.  They are also realizing that they are not going to be able to change it exercising arbitrary amounts of power.  They are scared, and scared people strike out in many ways.  Calling the police, when you know in your heart that it’s a racist act, invoking a racist institution* to take action against a member of another race, is the act of a desperately frightened person.

* – don’t take my word for it, look it up.

Slime-Pit of Racism

This is Amerikkka now.  Something sounds Hispanic?  That is literally a reason to call the police, to have them respond with deadly force.  Hell, I don’t know why they didn’t send SWAT.

You think these reports are isolated incidents?  These reports are just now becoming OK to make!  People are not thinking they have to just accept this anymore, so it’s getting publicized.

That’s progress but it’s up against human garbage like (many residents of) Kingman, AZ

(check out Who Is America? by Sacha Baron Cohen.  Disgusting… and brilliant!) 

UPDATED: Kingman respondsPumpkin would be so proud.

Nazis, or as Pumpkin has called them, “very fine people.”  On the other hand, the 1933-45 German version probably did indeed have Germany’s interests at heart, even while going about it very badly from every point of view.  They were certainly not trying to sell it out to Russia or any other foreign power.

Rick Wilson (no friend of Pumpkin, to be sure), says in this Newsweek piece that the cruelty of the “zero tolerance” immigration edicts and stripping babies from their mothers plays well on TV, revving up their base of shitty, shitty people.

And their core supporters want anybody who’s darker than a latte deported. They’re not happy about immigration of any kind. They don’t believe in the asylum process. They want to take and separate these families as a matter of deterrence and as a sort of theater of cruelty. I think it really doesn’t speak well to their moral standing.

Everyone darker than a latte!  What do you want to bet that will also mean Jews and LGBTQ+ people before this is over?

That last sentence, by the way, is Wilson’s entry in the Understatement Olympics.
