Neoliberals Have the Guns, The Courts, the Media, the Banks, So What Makes You Think Next Time It Won’t Be You?
The majority of America’s 197 million white people don’t understand that the physical suffering and direct beatings and shootings inflicted upon African-Americans absolutely do apply to them. They do not understand that the labor and other violations committed on undocumented people can absolutely happen to them. I am 56 years old with a master’s degree and I have worked ever since I was 13 years old and I have no savings, no house, and minimal retirement.
“Because I just didn’t work hard enough.”
“Because I didn’t marry a rich man.”
Oh! Maybe I wasn’t attractive enough to marry a rich man.
I was engaged to marry the heir to Conoco-Phillips. Rich enough for ya?
It isn’t just “There but for the Grace of God go I.” It’s there go you and will go you unless you rise up to stop this for your fellow Americans and human beings as well as yourself.
So my white, conservative friends — once again I am talking to you.
If you voted for Donald J. Trump and are MAGA — ask yourself how what the DOJ did in raiding Trump attorney Michael Cohen’s office and taking every document no matter which client it pertained to any different than what has happened thousands of times to a black person who is wrongfully incarcerated for a crime he didn’t commit? How is the current charge of the NY Attorney General against the Trump Foundation any different than a black person charged and incarcerated for a crime he didn’t commit?
This female states Mr. Trump can’t serve on the board of the charity with his name, nor can his son or daughter because it violates their fiduciary duty. This individual is stopping the so called “operations” of the Trump Foundation in its home state, New York.
To apply the law the way our appalling injustice system falsely states it is applied (“Justice is blind”), she should repeat this procedure — 40,000 times and start with the Clintons.
What about the Five-Star A++++++ rated Clinton Foundation?
Underwood and her predecessor Schneiderman, who recently stepped down due to beating and choking four former female sexual and romantic “partners,” seemingly have no issue with Clintons. Pure politics, right?
It’s impossible for money not to be involved. These “oversights” are in no way voluntary.
For over 15 years of its history there were two voting directors of the Clinton Foundation: Bill Clinton and his friend Bruce Lindsey.
Of course there are more now! This is the most extraordinary charity in the history of the world.
Much as 1920s Jim Crow lynch mobs accused their innocent black victims of extreme violence and subhuman behavior, so too do today’s so-called “law and order” professionals like Underwood and Schneiderman, like Strzok and Page, like the Clintons — accuse others of what they, themselves, are guilty of. Amply, extremely guilty of.
I have no idea what Trump did or did not do with his charity but it has a fraction of the funds of the Clinton charity and appeared to make some direct grants the last time I checked.
Here’s the 2017 “Financial” “Report” for the Clintons.
That circular chart could represent income of $50 or $500 million. Who knows? The Clinton Foundation. “Management & General” percentage hasn’t changed in 15 years. I’m sure you can see what full disclosure you have here. Look at that super-current, recent date: “View 2016 Financials.” They have until November 15, 2018 to file their tax return. It is always filed at the last minute every year and is always defective in some manner.
“It’s just politics,” right?
It’s not like these two, one of whom was in charge of Hillary Clinton’s “email investigation,” have any more class than the person they hate so much (Trump). With a slur thrown in for Bernie Sanders for good measure.
The only difference between these people and WW2 German Nazis is these people are telling blacks they are “on their side” whereas the Nazis were totally open about wanting to kill and destroy Jews and communists.
Strzok, Page, Clintons, Gingrich, Biden, Ryan: they know instinctively where the Nazis went wrong.
The Nazis publically vilified Jews, Gypsies, LGBTQ people, and communists. It was open and known. Those targeted had a right to fear and were victimized without remorse. Like black people in America today, few helped the Jews and communists Hitler’s thugs sent to concentration camps, then killed.
America has the highest incarceration rate of any OECD country. And of those incarcerated, African Americans are the majority.
The only reason, my white conservative friends, that you have difficulty seeing that what has happened to African American people and families over the last 40 years is the exact same thing as has been happening for over two years to Donald J. Trump and anyone associated with him is that Mr. Trump has the same skin color as you and you look up to him.
As my friend Michael Graham so cogently points out: 75% of white people do not have a single black friend.
Just like Mr. Trump doesn’t have a single friend in the FBI and DOJ leadership or “mainstream media” and his campaign associates and attorney sure as heck don’t.
Strzok, Page, McCabe, Lynch, all the rest didn’t specially select Donald J. Trump to persecute while letting Hillary Clinton get away with anything she wanted as some isolated circumstance based only in their political objections to him and political desire for Clinton to win. Any opponent to her would have been similarly treated just as Bernie Sanders is certain to be if he does run for President again either as a Democrat or an Independent.
Racism and money in the form of how people initially got rich and want to stay rich in this country is at the heart of all of this. Racism and greed are inextricably intertwined. Slaves made people rich in the South before and after the Revolutionary War. You’d be rich too if you had people working for you for free with no other choice.
You probably have not heard the information that Hillary Clinton “owned slaves.” She benefited from free prison labor in the Arkansas governor’s mansion. It was so uncontroversial to her that she spoke proudly about it in her famous 1996 book (she didn’t write it — she took advantage of the ghostwriter) It Takes a Village. If you needed any more proof nobody really reads Clinton’s so-called five-star bestsellers, most people did not notice this passage until after the 2016 election.
The Clintons also pay African-Americans to work for them. Some, like attorney Cheryl Mills, have become independently wealthy through their service, though not on the same scale as the Clintons themselves.
Others work for them online. Most of the David Brock #H8% (“hate percent”) trolls who harass actual progressives online are accounts either identifying as black, or as female. Or like this person: both.
Knowing that these statements in Hillary’s supposedly “progressive” book, the title alone of which outraged conservatives, weren’t good, the troll forces came out.
You, white conservative, are just as “valued” by the Clintons and their ilk as the average African-American person or as Donald J. Trump and people who volunteered for his campaign. Right now these same people are criticizing Trump because he sat down to talk peace with Kim Jong Un. “He shouldn’t talk to an evil dictator.” A Democratic member of Congress has introduced a “law” to order Trump never to remove troops from South Korea.
About you: they lie to others and attack to your face.
About African-Americans: they lie to them saying they are not racially biased and attack behind their backs.
The day you realize that black men and women are in fact: your American brothers and sisters. The day you come to realize that Native Americans are in fact: your American brothers and sisters.
The day you realize that we are all, all over the world, human beings and brothers and sisters, and that we should treat others the way we would, ourselves, want to be treated, is the day that the high-minded language in our country has a chance and a hope of coming true.
Equal justice under the law.
One person, one vote.
Land of the free and home of the brave.
There is no difference between Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders and how they were treated and any of the rest of us, of any color, ethnicity, or gender. Every single argument made here in this BBC overview of past arguments in favor of slavery is identical to arguments made today by neoliberals and neoconservatives about healthcare, U.S. constant involvement in wars, drone bombing, civil rights, voting, $15/hour and free college. Conservatives accept and swallow most of these as regards healthcare, college education, prescription drugs/Western medicine, credit and loan policies, employment/worker rights.
These people are an evil cancer and must be gotten out.
