I can’t help but voice my opinion on the ‘white supremacy’ (not capitalized) movement currently spouting their racism! Listening to their ridiculous rhetoric especially recently, is enough to make me disgusted and angry.
I really hesitate to give any credibility even by writing about them or mentioning their name, but after watching the latest in the news, I just had to write something. The speaker was saying how ‘they’ … the Europeans and the white race ‘created’ America. I guess they don’t remember that Thanksgiving is this Thursday, when America celebrates the pilgrims coming, and meeting with the Native Indians that were already there and to give thanks for the blessings they have.
What really is troubling is that there seems to be too many people who spout this nonsense; too many who are anti-sematic, anti-immigration, anti-black, anti-anyone other than them. The United States was founded on Christianity but freedom most of all to worship or believe what they wanted to.
The key word being freedom. This white supremacy movement is all about squelching everyone else who lives there, that does not believe as they do! I wonder what exactly makes them think they are superior to anyone else? Do they really applaud Nazism and what happened in the Holocaust? What is warping their minds, because warped is what they are?
Freedom does not mean that you have the right to take it away others’. Freedom does not mean that you have the right to threaten, intimidate or cause harm to another person by words or actions. People are charged with hate crimes as individuals, and yet this group is ‘free’ to spout hatred and dissension it seems at will.
What is wrong with our laws? Something is for sure. It is called the alt-right but that’s just a pseudonym for racism. Whether you are Christian or not, we need to speak out and fight for those who are oppressed or threatened in any way with what I consider poisonous nonsense. I realize this is not just an issue in the United States, but at the moment that’s where the focus is right now.
I know what I say will likely not change anything, but to say nothing tonight was not an option for me!
