An Unexpected UnFollowing

`

Several days ago, some unpleasant circumstances surfaced, resulting in my unfollowing a WP website.

That was unexpected, too, considering how, in the short time I’d been aware of these latter-day nomads, I had [1] thoroughly enjoyed virtually camping out / exploring the Canadian wilderness “alongside” them and [2] wound up totally impressed by their breath of fresh air writing style and breathtaking photography; all of which had made their travel-blog the next best thing to actually being there.

Alas, only to have my feel good buzz abruptly drowned out by the deafening cacophony of oppression’s clanging, rattling chains.

The problem surfaced… when they began [1] blogging about paying visits to the U.S. southern states and [2] literally paying descendants of Confederate generals / soldiers (traitors ALL to America) to take them on guided tours of plantations and mansions dripping with slaves’ blood, sweat and tears.

There can be little doubt, that indecent docents have always been hellbent on wrongfully perpetrating / perpetuating / presenting / promoting America’s absolutely indefensible racist history; obviously inclusive of the brutal beatings, whippings and lynchings of enslaved blacks.

We ARE speaking of the unspeakable… the very hatred which still seethes and surfaces in the here and now; on a nearly daily basis; i.e., each and every time, each and every rocks in the head, stone beneath sternum, out on patrol, out of control cop [1] profiles and pulls over black motorists, [2] brutally beats and tases them, and, in the tragic end, [3] whips out his/her service revolver to, in cold blood, slaughter their black detainees… correction… the blacks they enslave; all over what is nearly always tantamount to a minor driving infraction (e.g., expired license plate tabs).

While I don’t actually believe… that I’ve severed ties with bigoted bloggers, it is their naiveté that’s most bothersome. Fleshing that out, it’s their apparent belief that one can hobnob with bigots sans getting their own hands stained blood red.

`

While it is true that “those who do not learn history are doomed to repeat it”, it’s worth pointing out that revisionist history does not teach anybody anything worthwhile!

`

And more to the point… there are not many, IF ANY, down south docents’ tours, which correctly dress down / strip off the white hoods and robes to fully expose knuckle dragging Klansmen, who’ve bloodied the pages of American History; who, in words and deeds, continue to do the same within each new day’s breaking news (aka, history in the making).

Since it’s unlikely that these travel-bloggers will ever read this post, I can only hope that they’ve not gone completely noseblind to the stench of America’s racist past and present; that, somehow, they’ll self-realize how…

The best, and oft ONLY way… to effectively shut up bigoted history revisionists is to make damned sure they take a hit in their damned wallets. All people of good conscience will flat-out boycott their (mis)guided tours and NEVER, EVER buy into any of their alternate reality published SHIT!

For what it’s worth… I do hope that when these nomads plan future travels, they do realize that there are plenty of savory destinations to pick and choose from; populated by decent people far more worthy of their spent travel dollars.

Year End Riddle: Who Is He?

`

He’s stoned high on himself; drunk on raw power
High on his high horse; holed up in high tower

He cedes high road to reign; his reins: ball and chain
Seeds storm clouds with filth, “green” eyes downpour rain

He stows stone beneath sternum; rocks between ears
Boasts high on hog’s life; toasts Fascist pig peers

Brutal Cops, Nazis, Klansmen, are best buds he treasures
Feeding off their vile vibe; he cops pervy pleasures

Depictions / descriptions; depressed regions; war-torn
All human suffering and death; are that sicko’s porn

Triple X starlets role play; become cheating cad’s crushes
Their bejeweled, plastic bods; afford him gold rushes

He shuns “raincoats” and masks, that fend off infections
In both daydreams and nightmares; he plots insurrections

His rallies roll out; all the known nasty “isms”
That fracture society; with too tough to fix schisms

He beds down, best bud bedlam; they cohabit and mate
They hate to make love; yet, love to make hate

Vile, Volatile Vigilante

`

Vile, volatile vigilante
Conceived in grubby grotto
Gestated in amniotic venom
Poisoned by toxic masculinity
Reared in evil environs’ dungeon

Vile, volatile vigilante
Schooled weekdays weakly
Sunday unschooled bleakly
Untutored in civics and ethics
Stripped naked of civility and integrity

Vile, volatile vigilante
Radicalized by hate traffickers
Brainwashed by propagandists
Sheeted/hooded Deep South white
Shirted World War II Scheisse brown

Vile, volatile vigilante
Militarized by gun nut sociopaths
Mollycoddled by militant gestapo cops
Freed by jury of like-minded, brain-dead peers
Unpunished by headless, bench warmer judges

Vile, volatile vigilante
Rewarded handsomely for ugly mayhem; murder
Morphed stick-figure role model
Trotted out fraudulent hero
Dubbed the abnormal new normal

Vile, volatile vigilante
Elevated soon to Sheriff?
Appointed soon to the Bench?
Elected soon to Congress?
Installed soon in Oval Office?

Running: More Ways Than 1

The following story is true. My not naming anyone by name is the best way to further emphasize how the disease of racism is omnipresent and adversely affects all people of color.

During election year 2020, there’s an African-American candidate who is running for high elective office. Regrettably, his best shot at emerging victorious is to establish a gun-nut voter base; to pander to their worst instincts; to concurrently rail out against his political rival’s anti-gun stance. The irony here:

Armed to the teeth rabble oft seethe with bigotry, too; so much so, that were this candidate to ever go out for a neighborhood jog… well…

Many of his newfound, vile, vigilante supporters would not react well. They’d summarily judge a running black man “guilty’’ of the “crime” of minority jogging. Their meted out punishment would be too horrific to put into words.

Our only consolation, here, is knowing how this political wannabe is too smart to ever attempt running such a dangerous experiment.

Mad Hatters and Haters

Seeing how the Trump Party “party hats”, which the white nationalist, Imperial Wizard fake prez traffics in, all bear the motto, “Make America Great Again”… a motto which is little more than his deplorable, “dog whistle” message “Make America White Again”…

Here’s a quick question to each of his diehard supporters…

Do you realize that your MAGA hat is little more than a Klansman’s white hood?

And a quick follow up question…

Is your MAGA hat even Made in the USA?

 

 

 

 

The Disgraceful Embrace ~ 1 Quick Limerick #066

 

He’ll ravish women, grab at private places,
He’ll sleep with white sheeted, brown shirted bases,
For tyrant peers he feels crushes,
Over his FOX friends he gushes,
He’ll lavish sychophants with his embraces.

Flushing/Fleshing Out Fantasyland ~ 1 Quick Limerick #049

 

Do fantasies dictate Don’s oft swinging moods?
His hard driven man crush, for dictator dudes?
Does white supremacist crud?
Also “reroute”, his red blood?
Much more than his porn stars, call girls, blue mag nudes?

Who Is He? / Who He Is! (One Quick Limerick #044)

 

He’s bankrupt of values and brimming with vanity,
He batters* less fortunate with inhumanity,
He’ll smooch alt-right / gun nut rump,
On free press / speech, He’ll take dump,
He suffers from ignorance and/or insanity.

 

* try subbing in the word “bullies”

 

Is it wrong to call out the hypocrisy?

Yesterday was Memorial Day… a solemn holiday to honor U.S. soldiers who… from the earliest moments in American History… have made the ultimate sacrifice in battles to secure freedom for their compatriots… to liberate oppressed peoples here and abroad. We, who have been the beneficiaries of their heroism and selflessness, must, forever, feel indebted to them… I know those are my heartfelt sentiments.

So, why am I one day late in stating them?

My silence was out of respect to these heroes. My sense of decorum would not allow me to go anywhere near the Memorial Day spotlight which… after all… had to only shine upon them. Additionally my sensibilities would not permit me to politicize their day.

But… that was yesterday and today is today. From this point onward… the best way to call out some glaring hypocrisy is via political scrutiny.

Full disclosure: I’m a pacifist, who believes that intelligent, sane and selfless world rulers must become the rule and not the exception. Such leaders must respect one another, never engage in territorial pissing contests and always encourage their peoples to behave similarly.  From the top down, all members within these societies must understand that… in our world of plenty… there are sufficient resources to ensure that all law-abiding, able-bodied, industrious citizens become and remain psychologically, physically and fiscally fit. And for the record… the same must apply to the less fortunate… e.g., the aged, ailing and disabled. Wherever / whenever basic needs are met, one would expect warfare to become rare.

Of course, I’m also a pragmatist, who understands how my above paragraph likely describes an unattainable utopia. And… more to the point… that adjectives such as intelligent, sane and selfless rarely can be uttered in the same breath with _____________ (<— you insert the proper noun… i.e., the name of your chosen offensive king, prime minister, president, etc.).

Indeed, the leaders we actually get are frequently undereducated, unscrupulous, unbalanced and power-hungry. And let’s not forget to call out their hypocrisy, either.

So, WTF does any of this have to do with Memorial Day ’18? Well, I’ll flesh that out by inserting my chosen proper noun…the offensive, undereducated, unscrupulous, unbalanced, power-hungry HYPOCRITE Donald J. Trump!

During my formative years, my spot on parents both reminded me that, throughout life, I’d be judged by the company I keep. That inescapable truth applies to all… be you a pauper, president or anyone in between… inclusive of that emotional pauper / fake prez.

Since the birth of the United States… and onward… American warriors have defeated a slew of evil adversaries… inclusive of Klansmen and Nazis who were the forebearers of the very Klansmen and Nazis who have aided and abetted Trump’s rise to power… the very same, deplorable, white-robed and brown-shirted bastards he sucks up to and honors.

And… in honoring Klansmen and Nazis… he’s also dishonoring each and every American soldier who ever fought and died during the Civil War and WW-II.

Folks, in reality, on Memorial Day 2018, while addressing the Arlington Cemetery mourners, Donald J. Trump was spitting in the faces of the very patriots who had perished while toppling Jefferson Davis’ Confederacy and Adolf Hitler’s Nazi Germany.

At the very least… the fake prez MUST flat out denounce his Nazi and Klansmen pals AND return each and every 2016 campaign contribution they ever made AND… NEVER AGAIN… accept another penny from any of them.

At the very most… Donald J. Trump owes his heartfelt apology to each and every soldier who has ever perished in battle to preserve freedom… to protect and defend America… indeed the entire world… from the very hate and oppression both he and his scum of the earth Nazi / Klansmen pals embody.

 

 

Will Don Don Duds’ Duds? (One Quick Limerick #041)

 

Towards white supremacy, Don doth aspire,
His Klansman / Nazi base feels stoked, afire,
To coddle both sets of buds,
He’ll model both sets of duds?
‘Neath Don’s White Sheets he’ll don Brownshirt attire?

 

The so-called prez has a deplorable history of pandering to his hate mongering alt-right / white nationalist / Klansman / Nazi base. Even in the wake of the Charlottesville, Virginia bloodshed… vehicular manslaughter… where one of his goon pals deliberately plowed into a crowd of anti-racism protestors… murdering one woman and maiming dozens more… the soft on domestic terrorism, fake prez still categorized the sociopathic, bloodthirsty, deplorable alt-right vermin as “fine people”.

Ergo, it’d not be much of a stretch to consider the following (fortunately hypothetical) alternate timelines…

Had Donald Trump been “prez” during WW-II he would’ve been in bed with Adolf Hitler… had he been “prez” at a time leading up to America’s Civil War, he’d have sided with the vile slave owners… perhaps pissing off the northern states to the point of seceding from the United States.
