I shouldn’t have to tell any of my readers about the Charlottesville, Virginia melee that took place last weekend, particularly on Friday night and during the day on Saturday (8-11-2017 and 8-12-2017). It started with a white supremacist/white nationalist group, calling themselves “Unite the Right,” obtaining a permit to protest the removal of a statue of Robert E. Lee and the renaming of the park where the statue was located to Emancipation Park from Lee Park.
I viewed videos from Friday night where protesters were carrying tiki torches and shouting Nazi/anti-Jewish slogans. As far as I know, there was no violence resulting in property damage or bodily injury on Friday night. Saturday, or course was a different story as Unite the Right was met by liberal hate groups ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter. Both liberal hate groups have a history of violence. The protest didn’t end well with a young lady who was protesting on the side of the liberal groups being run-down and killed by an alleged member of Unite the Right as he plowed his vehicle into a group of the liberal protesters. In addition to the death of the young lady, nineteen others were injured.
Stories continue to surface. One such story indicates that the Charlottesville Police were told to stand down and let the groups involved in Saturday’s melee oppose each other. Another story that has been revealed by the Southern Poverty Law Center indicated that James Alex Fields, Jr., the driver of the car that plowed into the protestors had, until recently, been an Obama supporter and a far left radical.
Again, I don’t have to tell anyone about the backlash coming from the left and the mainstream media regarding their dissatisfaction with the comments of President Donald Trump in the aftermath of Charlottesville. Most all Democrats and some Republicans have pushed back against the president because he has blamed both sides for the fracas, and also indicated that there were good people on both sides. Furthermore, most all Democrats and some Republicans have elevated the left-wing hate groups, ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter to blameless entitles, indicating that they were lovingly protesting the racist white supremacy group, not seeming to “get” that everyone was going at one another, and ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter have histories of violence.
I have had very little contact with white supremacists. Liberals would be astonished at this since I grew up in Cullman, Alabama and currently live in the Birmingham, Alabama area. But it’s true. Back in the nineties, I was working at a concession stand at the Birmingham, Jefferson Civic Center Coliseum to make money for a service club in which I belonged. One evening, while I was working, about three or four people who looked to be in their twenties/early thirties, who were adorned with swastika tattoos, were just kind of hanging out close to our stand. I was a bit un-nerved and hoped they would move on. They eventually did, but it took them a while. To be perfectly truthful, they were not disruptive, they were just there. Still, I didn’t want them close to me.
I don’t know who these people are, what they do for a living, what they do in their spare time, etc. But I can tell you this, cross-burnings are not regular occurrences in my neck of the woods. Also, I don’t hear about cross-burnings in other parts of the country. Cross-burnings do not appear to be common like liberals would have you think. Black neighborhoods, at least those around here, aren’t terrorized by white supremacists/Nazis/the KKK. But many black neighborhoods, particularly in Chicago, Detroit, Los Angeles, etc. are being terrorized on a regular basis. Are they being terrorized by White Supremacists? No, they are being terrorized by other blacks, particularly black gangs. While I haven’t researched this, I’m going to speculate that more blacks are killed by other blacks than by white supremacists. Are Jews rounded up and transported to labor/death camps by these people? Not that I know of.
A few days ago, I heard some talking head had indicated that the number of white supremacists/neo-Nazis/white nationalists in this country numbered about 100,000. That’s less that the seating capacity of Bryant Denny Stadium. This is miniscule.
What are these people like? Are they bitter old white men? Are they twenty-somethings who still live in their parents’ basement and frequent Internet porn sites? Do they meet once a month and chant their racist and anti-Semitic slogans in some farmer’s cornfield? I really don’t know.
What I do know is that they’re not major causes of trouble such as violence, damaging property and injuring people. Other groups such as ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter do those sorts of things.
Yes, a possible white supremacy group demonstrated in Charlottesville the weekend of 8/11 and 8/12. Are they planning other demonstrations, particularly soon? I’m hearing that’s a possibility. Are these folks transitioning from a bunch of misfits, who possibly visit Internet porn sites, and possibly chant racist and anti-Semitic slogans once a month in cornfields, to violent demonstrators who clash with liberal hate groups such as Black Lives Matter and ANTIFA?
If this is indeed happening, it’s all the fault of liberals in the United States of America and their hate groups. And let’s not forget the mainstream media. Liberals are responsible for bringing these white supremacy groups to the forefront. Liberals, who are about nothing but hate and have as their goal the destruction of the United States of America are the ones who are elevating groups such as ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter to heroes because these groups, in the name of combating racism, are opposing a minuscule and rather silent, but dangerous segment of the United States population.
Liberals hate the middle class and seek to destroy it. They don’t want low energy prices, they don’t want lower taxes, they don’t want the United States to be a rich, prosperous nation. And they certainly don’t want those citizens who have worked hard to have a little money in the bank or in their portfolios to continue to prosper. They want to destroy those folks, because somewhere in their deranged minds, if you have worked hard and have a little something set aside, you must have cheated to get it, you must have stepped on someone else. Therefore, what you have must be taken away from you.
As of this writing, a “Freedom of Speech” rally was held in Boston, this past Saturday, 8/19/2017. The group holding the rally stated that they were not affiliated with the KKK in any way. From the news reports that have come out, the liberal hate group, ANTIFA came out to counter the freedom of speech rally. ANTIFA counter protesters significantly outnumbered the “Freedom of Speech,” marchers, labeled as a conservative group by the press, including Fox Cable News. It was also revealed that the ANTIFA counter protesters were responsible for the violent acts against the “Freedom of Speech” folks and law enforcement who were there to maintain order.
Whether these “Freedom of Speech” marchers were affiliated with the Klan or other white supremacy groups, I don’t know. But these groups are not necessarily visible to the American public. They haven’t occupied “news time” in the last few years like the terrorist hate group, Black Lives Matter, has. But the left, in their hatred for anyone who does not toe their line, including their hatred for President Trump and his supporters, may have lit a match under a “powder keg,” unlocking what was once a “below the radar” group. Thus, continuing to divide the United States of America, in hopes of destroying this great country, the country who gave them the freedoms to express their philosophies on how we should govern ourselves, the country who gave them the right to dissent, something they now consider patriotic, but declared racist when Barack Obama was president.
As I have previously indicated in my writings, when an alleged white supremacy group is involved, it is the crimes and actions of the white nationalist group that must be condemned. If groups such as ANTIFA or Black Lives Matter are involved, they cannot be mentioned because, according to the left, and some on the right, if the purpose of ANTIFA/BLM is to counter the white supremacy or neo-Nazi group, they are acting for a noble and holy cause. Forget the fact that both ANTIFA and BLM have histories of violence.
Yes, forget the above facts because liberals don’t care about facts, nor do they care about the truth.
