I can’t blame Trump for teens who shoot up schools, but the people who murder gay people, Muslim people, Jewish people, Black people and Native people wear Donald Trump hats like a talisman, a token of justification and righteousness. They share what he offers in the way of bogie men. That tends to be those not of Northern European descent – the people Trump credits for his “good genes.” “It’s not me stealing from you, it’s that guy washing dishes”
I have a problem with the way we who oppose such things address the wages of white racism and nationalism. We have factions and organizations and associations all of whom need to protect their turf and talking points and so to one it’s about “weapons of war” and another it’s about racist cops and to another it’s about Gay rights, Feminism, and a host of things that may be worthy causes even if the officers of the corporation sometimes may not be so great.
We don’t unite against the hate culture unless we are united against hate culture; recognize its source, recognize its voices, the most vocal of whom are Donald J. Trump and his gang of thieves and saboteurs. It’s not people born with white skin. It’s not people with money. It’s not big this or big that, it’s what we let them get away with by being stupid and selfish enough to go along with them. It’s not the economy stupid. It’s the Republicans.
