First things first, if you are a white supremacist or person who “isn’t racist but…” You should immediately stop reading this and unsubscribe from my blog.
Friday night as you may know, a protest took place in Charlottesville. When I first saw the pictures, I thought, “What are they protesting? Not ENOUGH entitlement?” Then the jokes of others started rolling out about these sissy, impotent white men holding tiki torches they bought on clearance at Walmart.
Micheal Rappaport on Twitter put it best and I agree. These men could have been on a date. They could have been asking a girl out to have something better to do on a Friday night. (He said some more colorful things so I will stop there.) Instead they chose to march to a university and threaten some students. These men (and a handful of white women) could have done a million other things. They could have trimmed their mustaches, they could have played a Dungeons and Dragons tournament, they could have even concentrated on becoming the next Picasso. No, instead they decided to march and hover around a small group of 17 to 23 year old students, defending their right to go to school; some of which were sprayed with mace or pepper spray.
One of the things these men were defending was “White Heritage.” They were protesting the university taking the statue of Robert E. Lee down. Seriously? If it means that much to you, instead of marching on a Friday night, like a bunch of villagers in a Frankenstein movie…put that effort into recreating a tiny sculpture of Robert E. Lee! Then you can have it mass produced and display it in your ridiculous white supremacist home. This is what a bunch of peaceful people do, but usually it’s a statue of a deity.
The university wasn’t enough for you though, was it? No, you had to also break off and have half of your homogenous- loving-excuse-for-existence, go protest at a church. You weren’t just protesting either were you? You were trying to get in and force the people out. These were people who had every right to be there and pray in peace with their families and church families. Then you had to go and ruin it with your “Old Navy ad” inspired get up. Luckily some people were there to stave you off long enough before you could even get in.
If white heritage means that much to you then go back to wherever YOUR ancestors came from. You call yourselves “White Nativists”. What does this even mean? We ALL know Native Americans were here first. Unless of course by the term nativist you mean your ancestors were bullies and used blunt force on the first Americans.
If your dumb impromptu protest wasn’t enough, then you had the audacity to have yet, ANOTHER protest. Granted this one was scheduled. You didn’t stop there though, did you? You weren’t satisfied enough. You took a life.
You took a life.
Not all of you may have been behind the wheel of that car, but you definitely stood with him in solidarity.
If your grandparents (or in some cases great grandparents) were here, what would they say? Think about that! You would probably get an old fashioned butt whooping from them. They fought against Nazis in WWII. Do you think they would stand for you and your “Heil Hitler” crap? If you’re still clueless let me give you the answer…
My grandfathers were devastated when they found out they were possibly related to those whom they fought against. They didn’t stand for fascism then. Their descendants, who they properly taught, certainly don’t stand for it either. Case in point, if you are a Neo-Nazi, Klansmen, or let’s just call you for what you are, a domestic terrorist, then maybe you should examine your social outlets. Racism is a learned behavior. You have time to change.
If you are still reading this, and happen to be affiliated with one of these groups, in all seriousness you can exit stage left…or alt -right. If what I’ve said isn’t enough to disenfranchise you, let me say this; I’m married to someone with Jewish ancestry and I myself am not 100% white.
