Let's get this straight before some conservative believes me to be a lefty or commie or whatever new word righties call people with opposing view points I am neither I take the good qualities from both and understand how it was used to seperate.
Now back to the topic at hand. We all know about the horrible tragedy that took place in one historically black church by a extreme white supremacists this past week. Not only was it a horrible thing to happen but we also got to sneak a glimpse into the deluded mind of the right wing conservative.
Instead of condemning the racist idealogy that spawned this hate many conservatives took a rather disgusting and some would say racist route to rationalizing the attack a route that conservatives have been pushing forever.
These two routes were as follows. The first which I saw plain as day on Fox news dismisses that there was any racial motivation to the crime at hand and that it was clearly an attack on "faith". It is a truly disgusting viewpoint. I don't understand how these people can be brainwashed into such a deluded world that they would believe this. This is the go to delusion of the right even when all evidence says otherwise they will believe that there religion is under attack and the whole world is trying to persecute them for being Christian. No you are being condemned for being a bigot it's that simple.
The second route conservatives took was that there was a vast conspiracy by the gov. To start a race war. The perpetrator would later admit this to confirm their own bias. Let me make one thing clear to conservatives everywhere right now if you as a human being believe in such fantasy that is a " race war" I am going to automatically assume that you are a foaming at the mouth top notch racist.
This fantasy has been pushed on conservative white Americans since the civil war. Maybe even stemming farther back. Anytime there is racial oppression going on this was there go to. And you must understand some racist southerners still hold this resentment I believe from the many slave rebellions of the past. Anytime oppression becomes visible to the forefront the agitators were "race baiters" and trying to start a " race war".
The last "agitator" to be given these attributes was the great Martin Luther king. From communist race baiter to race war agitator MLK was called every name in the book never mind he was a Christian man to most southerners he was the devil spawn. To this day right wingers will call you a "race baiter". If you are using a word that has been the excuse by racists to ignore injustice against minorities for countless of years what make you think what your saying is any different? It's not to me it feels like we took a time machine back into the sixties only we have modern technology. Same problems same excuses as before.
Back to the "race war" narrative. Righties let's get one thing straight there will never be a race war. Black Americans are not going to band together and start killing whites without mercy. It's not going to happen. The ones in poverty that are being oppressed are too busy trying to survive and not get shot by other black man. While the well off and middle class are trying their hardest to assimilate and be apart of this sick system all they want to do is fit in and get a little slice of the pie.
The thought process for their rationalizations is very simple. Most of the right extremists know that what happened throughout our history to black Americans was wrong. So they wait with baited breath for the snapping point. Right wingers must stop believing that everyone is after them. The commies aren't after you, Blacks aren't after you, and Athiwst lefties aren't trying to destroy your religion just stop being so paranoid and crazy already! This is one of the many reasons southerners are a so gun happy in their paranoid delusions they really do believe there is a dangerous entity that is always after them and I will honestly never know why. But you Righties need to understand black people don't hate you they hate the system we are under not you. They hate the system the same way all educated men who are not brainwashed by media hate it.
So I plead with you Righties and extreme conservatives SNAP OUT OF IT AMERICA IS IN DEEP # FROM ALL SIDES THERE IS NO CONSPIRACY AGAINST YOU NO ONE IS TRYING TO TAKE YOUR WAY OF LIFE THEY ARE TRYING TO TAKE ALL OUR RIGHTS NOT JUST YOURS ITS TIME TO STAND IN SOLIDARITY WITH YOUR FELLOW MAN THAT IS THE ONLY WAY.
