Translation: he was a White dude so we have to pretend that premeditated fabrication of explosives and terroristic murder by mail are just the sympathetic growing pains of White young adulthood.
He wasn’t too “challenged” to figure out how to obtain the materials and construct multiple pipe bombs, then strategically mail them and avoid detection long enough to kill 3 people. Y’all need to stop willing innocence to these White dudes, all it does is give them permission.
Conditt = Vanilla ISIS. End of story.
Ever stop to think that White dudes are the main ones committing domestic terrorism because the predominately White male law enforcement in this country routinely grants legitimacy to killing sprees as a coping mechanism for the emotional stressors of White American existence?
After every single one of these terrorist acts committed by White men, other White men are rushing to microphones to assure us that all the White men who do this shit are no different than the average White man next door, they just had a bad day. Try being Black, Bro.
I lived in Austin for 4 years in college, and my husband was born and raised there, so I can attest. The LAST thing Austin is for White dudes is challenging. For that part alone, I call bullshit.
The Black population of Austin, TX has literally plummeted over the last two decades because the city has become too racist to inhabit. Y’all don’t get to just use the word “challenging” when you don’t even know what the fuck it really means.
When I moved to Austin in 1999, they still didn’t even have a major black radio station. I drove home to Houston to get my hair done b/c there weren’t any Black salons near campus. It’s one of the Whitest places on earth.
My husband was called a nigger by a few of his peers for much of his elementary school experience until he beat the shit out of one of them. One of his teachers told him all he’d ever be was a mechanic. We vowed not to raise children there b/c of it. Y’all don’t know challenge.
ICYMI my point is even the most “challenged” White man doesn’t know the challenge of being a Black man (or woman) in America. So much so that when a White man murders Black men w/bombs, the “challenge” in the story isn’t living under constant threat of White supremacist violence.
We live under unyielding threat of indiscriminate White supremacist violence every day, and the White powers that be are constantly telling us that there’s nothing to see here. Where does that register on the “challenge” scale?
Better yet, where does #everydayracism register on the challenge scale and by this same logic, why aren’t Black men committing domestic terrorism at the same astronomical rate as White men given their numerous challenges in navigating American life?! 🤷🏾‍♀️
Let me grab the receipts, because I’m not playing with y’all this morning....
I’m not even gonna break down the statistics b/c y’all can read and this is old news. The bottom line is White men don’t get to keep using “challenged” as an excuse b/c men & women of color are FAR more challenged and we aren’t out here mailing y’all bombs/shooting up schools.
You look stupid as FUCK ascribing the word “challenged” to any member of the most privileged demographic group in American society. #protip
This *domestic terrorism* in Austin is a prime example of how we remain at such high risk for mass violence due to the maintenance of White male privilege. Even without a gun, the sense of entitlement to cope by killing remains.
In other words...
If the tried and “true” excuse is always going to be that the lone wolf White terrorist who killed and/or maimed numerous people was simply “challenged”, then we damn sure need to start investigating how and why they specifically are granted such an atrocious privilege.
Better yet...
America is radicalizing White men (young and old) every minute of every hour of every motherfucking day. They control the airwaves, the internet and the entire federal government. They own the vast majority of the guns, ammo and military weaponry on this planet.
Do the math.
This centuries long epidemic of White male extremist violence will not be cured by thoughts, prayers or compassion for folk who don’t deserve it. That’s the trifecta that got us in this whole fucking mess in the first place.
The more mainstream White American culture attempts to normalize that which is not normal or safe, the more normal the abnormal atrocities become.
Mainstream White America has stoked and normalized White male rage and resentment to the extent that it elected it president and refuses to reign him in, no matter how much he reveals himself to be an unchangeable sociopath.
What they won’t tell you is that these White American men and boys are unable to cope with the “challenge” of not being given preferential treatment and/or acceptance for the mere fact of their Whiteness and manhood. They kill to right perceived wrongs and settle the score.
They don’t have to declare themselves sociopaths or terrorists or even espouse any hatred, the mere fact that these predominantly White men feel preferentially entitled to take other people’s lives, and are granted the “excuse” of narcissism & poor coping skills is OUR CHALLENGE.
The world around these White men and boys is rapidly changing in such a way that they are no longer at the top of the food chain. They feel “challenged” by our audacity to expect them to compete on a level playing field. Their response is to shoot/blow the field the fuck up.
Don’t even fucking utter the word “challenged” out of your mouth about these White male terrorists unless you’re also willing to elaborate further and explain how the “challenge” is really inability to function without undue White male privilege. Tell the fucking truth for once.
Let me guess, you’re “challenged” because you can’t get a girlfriend or stay afloat in college or hold down a decent job, or you suspect your dick is smaller than all the men of color you know so that’s why you decided to become a mass murderer/serial killer? Fuck your challenge.
That’s ALL the “challenges” ever amount to with these White dudes, basic life shit that most of us encounter every single fucking day (and more) without committing acts of terror. It’s a shitty ass excuse and anyone who defers to it is endorsing White male privilege/supremacy.
Your challenge is NOT accepted, Bro.

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.
