RACE TALK

Americans are at an impasse in their understanding of racism today. The activist slogan “Black Lives Matter” is met by the rejoinder “All Lives Matter” or “Blue Lives Matter.” Colin Kaepernick’s NFL protest about racial injustice is perceived only as an anti-American blast. President Trump tells reporters he is “the least racist person” they will ever interview. In each of these cases, conservatives feel deeply that they are not the bigots they are made out to be, declaring wide-eyed innocence in the face of any charge of racial animus.

This claim to racial innocence is not a new feature of the conservative movement, but rather one woven into the development of modern conservatism, part of an effort on the right to cleanse itself of its support for segregation and other racist policies, while heaping the blame for any racist outcomes in American society on their opponents on the left.

RUMOR MILL

 

That’s it for Friday.  It’s a light entry because Saturday sucked.  I’ll cover it on the Monday and Weekend post, but Kavanaugh was confirmed in a very narrow vote.  It’s been rough.  I’m writing this on Sunday night, and just opened Twitter for the first time since Saturday Morning.  It’s a hard battle to lose, but it’s just that: a battle.

We are at war to save the Republic from corruption and criminals that would abuse, pervert, and destroy the very system that they claim to love, all to further their own personal gains.  In war, there are casualties.  Battles are won and lost.  Some battles are harder than others.  However, victory can sometimes secured for the war by losing a battle.

I honestly feel that long term the Kavanaugh confirmation will become a Pyrrhic victory for the Republicans.  We’re not stopping the effort to expose his corruption with him taking the bench.  Oh, fuck no.  We’ll continue the fight to make sure that his finances and statements are investigated.  We’ll continue the fight until he, like the rest of the corrupt and traitorous, are removed from power and receive the punishment their crimes demand.

The first part of this plan is vote, and vote Democrat in November.  None of this split ticket bullshit.  Vote every Republican out of office for the foreseeable future.  The Republican Party no longer stands for law and order, but abuse and corruption.  It no longer stands for the protection of this country, but for selling it out to the highest bidder.  It no longer protects the weakest in our society, but tries to exploit them them make a buck.

I’ll be back likely Monday night or Tuesday with the update for this past weekend.  See you then.

 

Thank you, and have a good one.
