So I see where the GOP’s constituents had a big parade and cosplay
party in Charlottesville, VA. They were on TV this past weekend
having a great time, wearing their Nazi garb, waving their treasonous
CSA flags, beating up people and intimidating them. Y’know, the kind
of fun the GOP just loves.
And there were some people counter-protesting too, in civilian garb.
Real losers, huh? The Charlottesville police were nice enough to let the Nazis
beat up the ones they could catch. They even let one of them murder an
innocent woman. Of course, after the cops let the Nazis and faux rebels
whip up on the civilians for awhile, then they made some ridiculously
oh-so-not-believable attempts to appear to be trying to protect the
unarmed civilians. But it was clear whose side they were on.
The police chief acted as if it was someone else’s fault that only four or
five arrests were made. Huh? The cops were right there watching
people rioting and getting beaten up in front of them. If they didn’t make
arrests, it’s because they didn’t want to. Because, apparently, the Nazis
and faux confederates are their peeps. What else could account for their
refusal to stop assault and battery going on right before their very eyes?
Not to digress but, shouldn’t the Charlottesville Chief of Police be fired
for incompetence after such a fiasco?
Police normally have relatively little trouble quelling riots and/or
collaring people who are illegally assaulting someone right in front of them. But in this case it sure looked as if they didn’t want to stop the violence, as if they wanted the Nazis and faux rebels to beat up the civilians.
My guess is that, if it had been black guys instead of white Nazis beating
up people, those police batons, night sticks, pepper spray and more
would have been used liberally.
Not to be realistic, but, let’s just take a look at the loser regimes the
Nazis and faux confederates want to emulate and see how they fared in
The CSA lasted four years. The treasonous South caused hundreds of
thousands of deaths and was pretty much turned to rubble. William
Tecumseh Sherman took the South’s measure and realized what it would
require to put down the rebellion. He marched from Atlanta to the sea. He started by burning Atlanta to the ground and kept right on destroying everything in his path–including crops and livestock–until he reached the sea. Georgia was a wasteland when he was finished with it.
Richmond, Charleston, Savannah, etc. were ravaged as well by the end
of the Civil War.
And it was all because white Southerners thought they should be able to base their economy on the stolen lives of millions of people, that they should be
able to own other human beings. (Those are “states’ rights” they’re
always going on about.)
Then, just to make things even worse for the South, another mindlessly
vicious idiot Southerner, John Wilkes Booth, murdered the one person in
the country who might have helped rebuild the South, Abraham Lincoln.
That was the end of “reconstruction”. As a result the South was ground into the dirt for nearly a hundred years.
The price? Incalculable. But, apparently, that lesson has been lost on
the people we all saw on TV rioting in Charlottesville for the last couple
How great would these Charlottesville faux Nazis/CSA rebels have thought slavery was if they were the ones being bought and sold, brutalized and treated to the most horrific torments? Would they be as enthusiastic about slavery and the confederacy under those circumstances?
Fast forward to the 20th century and Hitler’s vaunted “Thousand Year
Reich”. Turns out he and his dumbass dweebs botched their war too, in
part because the guy they thought was so great was stupid enough to try
to fight on two far-flung fronts.
It was actually the “Twelve Year Reich”.
So much for the wisdom of following some uneducated screwball whose
plan for world domination is based on stealing everything from a very
wealthy minority and murdering the people stolen from, through mass
asphyxiation. (Who even thinks such things, let alone does them?) It’s
incomprehensible and yet, here these people are again, on TV, going on about
what a great leader Adolph Hitler was.
The CSA confederates and the Nazis both ruined their countries and
were responsible for millions of deaths. For a combined 16 years in power.
Hmmm. That was really worth it, no? No!
And now we have a bunch of ignorant thug followers/admirers of our
president rioting in the streets under Nazi and confederate flags. (And
I’ll bet every last one is a registered republican.)
Unfortunately, we all wind up having to pay for their brutality and
stupidity. They’re more than just a royal pain in the ass. They’re
What is incomprehensible is that they’re lucky enough to have been born
in a free country and they are just pissing on it as if it were worthless.
They say they want to “take back our country”. But what they really
mean is they want to take away everyone else’s prerogatives. They want
to take away our country; “we the people’s” country. They want their
share and ours.
And don’t forget–they’re all republicans. The GOP courted them. The
GOP sucked up to them. The GOP loved them when it was election time.
I think the GOP loves them still but it’s just not practical at the moment
for them to admit it.
Unfortunately, it seems as if the GOP hates America. They prefer Russia
and its totalitarianism. Keep it in mind. I think at some point we’re
supposed to have another election, although, given what the GOP has shown me in the past few months, I’m not counting any chickens on that score.
Here’s a suggested campaign slogan for the GOP that seems to fit their world view and behavior. “Vote Republican. We’re not putting people in ovens. Yet.”
