This headline is not a typo.
Last weekend, the rest of America was awakened to what most people of color have known since imperialism first started to take over the world: White Supremacy Is Real. Many people did not believe that this statement was true in 2017, but the events in Charlottesville got everybody woke now.
It is not something new to see groups such as the Ku Klux Klan have rallies and protests where they chant and force hate speech, but considering the amount of people that showed up and the fact that somebody died as a result of a terrorist attack from a white supremacist, the reminiscence of previous era in America has reared its ugly head again. White “nationalists” are getting brave again and the reason behind it is because of…
To be fair, he did condemn all Neo-Nazis & other kinds of white supremacists groups after 2 days, but then seemed to roll back on his comments, pandering to the white supremacists again by questioning the taking down of Confederate monuments yesterday. However, regardless if you want to blame him or not for this uproot, they are rejuvenated and plan to repeat what they did last weekend again, this weekend. Only this time, in 10 different cities.
The “Alt-Right” have planned “March on Google” rallies to protest the firing of Google engineer James Damore for writing an essay expressing that ‘the push for diversity has gone too far’ and is pushing away potential far-right users. He (Demore) claims to not be part of the “Alt-Right” and doesn’t plan on attending the rally, but the rallies plan to continue.
At this time, Neo-Nazis and the KKK have aligned themselves with the “Alt-Right” movement, so you know they’re about to come through to the function and turn up with the gang (which is what these white supremacists groups are).
The “March On Google” rallies are happening at Google locations in Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Los Angeles, Mountain View (CA), New York, Pittsburgh, Seattle, Washington, D.C. A separate “Alt-Right” rally is happening in Boston.
Some of you may be wondering why the headline for this post calls these white supremacist groups “The American ISIS”; that’s because that is what they are. Allow me to break it down as to how so:
- They try to indoctrinate impressionable minds into their movement.
- They are willing to commit violence in the name of their beliefs.
- They are willing to die for what they believe in.
- They have and continue to commit acts of violence against innocent civilians. That’s terrorism.
- They try to blend in with the rest of the society.
- They believe that their people are being attacked and so they believe that any acts of violence is just self-defense.
- They believe that they are preserving their culture.
This is who they are. They are terrorists. They hate a lot of people – particular groups of people. They are trying to get rid of these people from “their” country. The biggest difference between them and ISIS is that they believe they have a friend in the White House.
This weekend, they plan to rally in some diverse cities, Atlanta being one of the blackest cities in America, very different from Charlottesville – they are getting very brave. As more and more Confederate statues are coming down all across America, the hoods are off. This is not over. Stay Safe.
