I saw #BlackKkKlansman this weekend, and just WOW. It was brilliant and right on time for our current dark moment in American history. Especially in light of the fact that White dudes are out here burning Nikes in protest of Black lives mattering. Past is prologue.
I won’t spoil the plot for y’all but suffice it to say that the whole movie is an indictment of “Make America Great Again” and the inherent White male supremacy of Republican politics. It’s no mystery how we ended up here or why shit hasn’t changed in 150+ years.
There were moments when the whole audience audibly gasped at how David Duke’s rhetoric from the past foreshadowed Donald Trump’s ascendency to the presidency. There’s no mistaking the role White supremacy’s played in radicalizing generations of White Americans.
As I’ve repeatedly stated #onhere, I think what most American political observers continually fail to recognize about the GOP is how it mainstreamed KKK ideology for public consumption by way of the Southern Strategy. They’re hiding a pig under infinite layers of lipstick.
Folk like to think that just because they don’t wear white sheets and hoods or burn crosses on the weekend they aren’t White supremacists, but voting GOP is how they manifest their hateful, bigoted beliefs in the modern day. We only aid and abet them by pretending otherwise.
Spike Lee wouldn’t even have to so thoroughly explain this to America in 2018 if folk had just listened to Lee Atwater spilling the GOP’s racist beans in 1981. Oh but fragility, guilt and denial...
You cannot walk out of #BlackKkKlansman without a clear understanding of how the KKK enmeshed itself with the Republican Party in order to enshrine its belief system into law. You cannot miss how Trump is both a beneficiary and benefactor of White male supremacy.
You cannot watch these White dudes burn their Nikes without remembering them lighting tikki torches in Charlottesville or burning crosses all over the South during the civil rights movement. White male supremacists light shit on fire when they feel inadequate and insecure.
They’re burning symbols of equality in retaliation for their Confederate symbols being torn down; they think diversity is genocide and equality is oppression. They’re marching in defense of subjugation by police brutality and apartheid. They ARE the KKK, hoods not required.
They may be saying they’re protesting Nike and Colin for “veterans and the flag”, but what they’re really incensed about is the declaration that Black Lives Matter and the modern day civil rights movement against White supremacist police violence.
Same shit, different day.
Russia aside, millions of actual White Americans voted for Trump in protest of President Obama & the multicultural America that elected him. They voted in protest of demographic change and the expansion of equal civil rights. This whole disaster is in protest of forward progress.
The GOP’s messaging is racist because its base is racist. This shouldn’t be a difficult concept to grasp, but mainstream White culture is uniquely adept at obfuscating the issue to the benefit of the status quo. They pretend that virulent White Nationalism is patriotism.
They also pretend that unyielding allegiance to demonstrably racist killer cops is patriotism, because nothing says American law and order like a good ole fashioned slave patrol and lynching posse.
Bottom line is people still need to wake the fuck up. History repeats because hatred and ignorance are generationally inherited and transmitted. Trump is a symptom of a systemic disease that’s afflicted America since 1492.
The disease is so insidious that some White folk who call themselves liberal and progressive still think it’s cute to fraternize with Nazis like Steve Bannon for the sake of “access” to White supremacy.
I could go on and on about this, but I already have and there are receipts. Republicans are still riding the red wave of racist White rage and resentment because it’s a strategy that works on the White American voting majority without fail.
Finally, if you haven’t yet seen #BlackKkKlansman, I HIGHLY recommend that you do. In 2 hours you’ll learn what the American MSM has willfully chosen to keep in the darkness for the last 50 years.
Go forth and be educated. 🔥
Don’t just take my word for it, hear it straight from the horse’s ass:

I don’t begrudge their secrecy either, but how exactly are the ~60% of White men who vote GOP ever going to evolve away from misogyny if not even the women in their lives feel safe enough to speak their minds? This is the American Taliban.
No one is explicitly addressing the narcissism and sociopathy of *mainstream* White American male culture from within its ranks. It’s literally shooting up the public square, desecrating the US government, waging endless war abroad/at home and killing the planet with IMPUNITY.
It’s already painfully clear they won’t listen to the marginalized groups they’re oppressing, but the fact that there’s literally been no appreciable impact of White on White peer pressure on the WM majority for so long in this country should be cause for much greater concern.

How are they possible Democratic voters if a) they don’t know or care what the party stands for b) they can’t be bothered to listen to or be intersectional with the marginalized groups that ARE the Democratic base c) they can’t tolerate confrontation of White male supremacy? 🤷🏾‍♀️
Listen Bros, I understand that you haven’t had a party to proudly call your own since GWB irreparably destroyed the GOP in the 2000s. I’ve documented it at length. None of this means you get to commandeer a coalition you don’t even actually support.
Rather than work internally to change the GOP or establish a viable 3rd party for Bros who are aware enough to be embarrassed by the GOP, they seek to meet their ends on the backs of the women, POC and LGBTQ who anchor the Democratic Party. HELL NO, Bro.

Respectfully, what you also aren’t getting is that the White privileged psyche of MAGAts, Klansmen, Nazis and other GOP isn’t unique to them or completely absent from the folk on the Left who routinely thwart Democratic objectives out of spite for women and POC. Slash that.
@philip_md1 I don’t make exceptions for racist/misogynist fuckery on the left. If these people want to actually join the Democratic Party, they need to listen for once in their lives and learn how to be RELIABLE allies to the base of the party. If not, they can GTFOH.
@philip_md1 You really need to take the time to read MLK’s Letter from Birmingham jail because if you still don’t see how White “moderates” are equally responsible for this disaster, you’re aiding and abetting it.

LOL if I’m honest I’d say I’m struggling to even figure out which one you’re referencing because aren’t they all?! 🤷🏾‍♀️🤪 Either way you’re guaranteed to find it on a) my wakelet page (link in bio) or b) my Moments tab #onhere.
@noralove It’s gonna irk me until I figure it out though 😂 is it this one?

Seriously though, where is Mark Judge? WTAF?!
I thought it was so disingenuous how Kavanaugh cited Mark Judge’s substance addiction as a reason why he shouldn’t be brought into this as if their mutual relationship with beer isn’t at the heart of this controversy.
Not only that but it’s also highly plausible that the sheer stress of keeping his and Kavanaugh’s dirty secrets concealed over the last few months triggered a relapse or exacerbation of Judge’s addiction.

I love how people keep declaring a constitutional crisis every day as if we haven’t already been in one perpetually since 1/20/17. 🙃
Who would’ve guessed that the illegitimately installed sociopath would behave like an illegitimately installed sociopath every fucking chance he gets?! Who would’ve guessed that his Republican enablers would actually use the rubber stamp they nominated?
Every Congressional Republican who’s up for re-election in November should be VOTED OUT simply on the grounds that they’ve aided and abetted Trump’s illegitimate and illegal occupation of the White House for going on 2 years. Mueller shouldn’t have to be doing their job for them.
