Every Southern town, it seems has its memorial featuring a statue of some Confederate general or another. And whenever you point out that these were evil motherfuckers who fought a war to defend keeping human beings as livestock, I get the invariable whines of “but what if it was *your* ancestor there in the public square?”

Yeah? What if? I’d say the same goddamn thing: Tear the evil sonofabitch’s statue down. These evil motherfuckers killed more Americans than Hitler. You don’t see statues glorifying Hitler in every public square of America, do you? No?

And in fact, one of my ancestors did fight (and die) for the Confederacy. I tracked the family tree back to some dude who moved from North Carolina to the Cajun prairie of Southwest Louisiana in order to breed human beings as livestock. Yep, he had himself a regular business there, he had a big honkin’ stud, a fine collection of brood mares, and made his living renting his stud out to all the plantations in the area when he wasn’t selling the kiddos who popped outta his brood mares. Except these were human beings that he was breeding like livestock.

In short, he was one evil motherfucker. And for his sins, he condemned the next three generations of his family to bone-crushing poverty when he went out to fight to defend his right to own human beings as livestock and promptly got his ass capped by a Union bullet. (Or maybe he just died of dysentery in one of the unsanitary military camps of the area, whatever, all I know is that he never came back). He’d married a Cajun wife, who had been happy to marry this wealthy Anglo and escape her life of poverty. Guess what. She ended up back in the swamps with her relatives again, raising her kiddos, Anglo last name and all, as Cajuns. It always baffled me how my father’s side of the family for three generations back had spoken Cajun French at home as their native language and been raised in the Cajun culture despite their Anglo last name. Now I know. It was the family punishment for my great-great grandpappy’s sin.

Now, if I found out that my great-great grandpappy had been a high muckety muck in the Confederate army, would I want a statue in some public park commemorating his bravery? Fuck no. He was an evil motherfucker who went out to kill Americans in order to maintain the right to treat human beings as livestock. He no more deserves a statue in a public square than Adolph fucking Hitler does. Both wanted to kill Americans in defense of their right to do some evil, evil shit. If my ancestor had a statue on some public square, I’d fucking spit on the goddamn thing. Then pee on it for good measure. Because he was evil, evil, EVIL, and that evil does not need to be glorified in public, it needs to be documented in history books and in museums where that evil can be presented in its proper context.

Fuck these evil American-killing bastards. Melt down their statues for scrap. They were fucking evil, through and through, and deserve no statue, only disdain.

Charlottesville VA police department refuses to provide protection for Jewish synagogue and Jewish worshipers targeted by Nazis.

This is part of a pattern of behavior on the part of the Charlottesville police department. They target left-wing protesters and gas or arrest them upon the least provocation, but coddle right wing protesters and Nazis and allow Nazis free rein to do whatever they want to do — something which, BTW, the police in Wiemar-era Germany did too, thus allowing Hitler to come to power on the back of his brownshirts.

At some point we have to say that this pattern of behavior is not coincidence. At some point we have to ask, “which of the people leading the Charlottesville, VA police department are closet Nazis?” In my opinion, that point is now, because this has become too blatant to be a coincidence.

Because there’s no difference between Nazis carrying shields and pipes and wearing helmets, and people who punch Nazis.

Seriously. That was his argument. That it was okay for Nazis to beat the shit out of people because the “alt-left” (antifa?) started it by punching some Nazis.

The President.

Defended.

Nazis.

Because those nasty antifa attacked peaceful white supremacists, as this photo proves:

Fuuuuuuuck.

Y’know, about these anti-fascist “antifa”, I don’t think their tactics are necessarily good or wise, but I can’t find it in me to condemn people who punch Nazis, no matter how much the Nazis whine about being punched. That’s the difference between me and the Orange Racist Russian Stooge, an apple that apparently didn’t fall far from the tree.

I swear, I go out of town on vacation, getting some well-earned rest deep in the Sierra Nevada well away from anything resembling the Internet, cellular service, frantic calls from my boss that things aren’t working, and so forth, and what the fuck happens?

Nazis.

Goddamn fucking Nazis.

Even Attorney General Jeff KKK Sessions is appalled and called the attack on anti-racism protesters an act of domestic terrorism.

Meanwhile a 32 year old paralegal, Heather Heyer, is dead and a lot of people injured. And James Alex Fields, Jr., the 20 year old neo-Nazi who slammed his car into the mass of protesters, has been charged with murder. Meanwhile His Fraudulency Donald the Trump was restrained in what he said about the attack, not name-checking neo-Nazis and white supremacists. Because the Orange Racist Pussy Grabber didn’t want to piss off one of his core constituencies, I guess. Because these racist asswipes were chanting “Heil Trump!” and displaying Nazi flags alongside Trump campaign posters as they marched around attacking protesters.

Here’s a hint: If you gotta restrain what you say in order to avoid pissing off fucking NAZIS, you ain’t on the side of what’s right and good.

Just sayin’.

Nazis. goddamn fucking Nazis. Again. Sheesh.

They were just trying to appeal to affluent black housewives. Instead, they opened a shitstorm of right wing racist whup-ass on themselves.

Every single black family of my acquaintance has had to have “The Talk” with their children. Especially the affluent ones who grew up in liberal racially-mixed communities. Their teenage sons, in particular, had to be sat down and told they can’t behave like their white teenage peers. Because if they behave like their white teenage peers when pulled over by the cops, they will be shot and killed. Because if they behave like their white teenage peers and smoke a little pot behind the schoolyard, they’ll go to jail for the next decade, while their white teenage kids will get a slap on the hand and sent home to Mommy and Daddy. Because if they behave like their white teenage peers and buy a fast flashy car, they’ll be pulled over every fifteen minutes by the cops on suspicion of auto theft and asked to prove that they own that car, or worse yet, arrested for auto theft and forced to hire a lawyer to prove their innocence. And don’t go into certain parts of town where white cracker kids hang out, and *especially* don’t go into their bars. And don’t expect to get served if you walk into a diner in small-town America and all you see are white faces. And so forth.

That’s life for black Americans. That’s the life that this commercial refers to. The Talk that this commercial refers to.

According to the bigots, white people are oppressed in America and black people are just making up all these things. Thing is, with all their racist rioting, all they’re doing is proven the point — that black people encounter bigotry on a daily basis, mostly from people who claim they’re not bigots.

But then, we’re talking bigots here, so I guess expecting intelligence from them would be like expecting flight from a cow.

Ain’t seen no cow flops fallin’ from the sky.

Just sayin’.

Turns out there’s *consequences* if you deport the workers that farmers need in order to harvest their crops.

But hey, there’s all these newfound good paying jobs that Donald Trump has created! The Central Valley has an unemployment rate amongst white people that’s hovering close to 10%, so surely all those white racist cracker Trump voters are praising his name and enjoying their new jobs picking crops, right?

Oh wait, they’re not picking crops?

In fact, farmers are *begging* them to come pick crops, are offering big bucks to come pick crops, and can’t get any of them to stay more than four hours after being hired? Because whiny white crackers got out in the fields, sweated for four hours while doing half the work of the Mexicans around them, and then said “f*** this, I’m gonna go cook some more meth” and quit?

Well fuck. That makes no sense. How do you think all those white crackers got into the Central Valley in the first place? They moved there from the Dust Bowl to work the crops! But at some point they quit doing that. I guess all the illegals who had no rights pushed them out. But now that the illegals are getting pushed out by ICE, they’re not willing to go back to work again in the fields no matter how much farmers are willing to pay.

No matter how much.

Racist cracker motherfuckers. We ought to deport’em all back to Oklahoma. Just sayin’.

Not even controversial amongst scholars. Criminalizing black people with discriminatory “black codes” enforced only against black people was one of the primary tools used to re-enslave black people in much of the USA after they were officially freed by the 13th Amendment to the Constitution.

In fact, the whole reason felons can’t vote in much of the US is exactly because of that — because it allowed the white power structure in much of America to remove the right to vote from wide swathes of black and brown people by simply arresting them and convicting them of crimes that would not have resulted in arrests and convictions if it had been white people. This is why Texas is a solid Republican state with a virtually all-white state government and congressional delegation right now, even though white non-Hispanic people are only 42.6% of the population in Texas (Hispanics are 39.1%, blacks are 12.6%, “other” for the rest). If you disenfranchise black and brown people, you can stay in charge even though you’re only 42.6% of the population. Yay.

But hey, we have Freedom(tm) here in America. U S A! U S A! U S A! Fuck yeah, land of the Free(*) and home of the Brave(**)!!!!
