Teaching Old White Radicals Lessons

“I think Black Lives Matter has already had an incredible legacy of forcing the nation to have a serious conversation about its defects and blindspots. I think the legacy of Black Lives Matter is that it will have contributed significantly to the development of American democracy. It’s helping America be its best self by pointing to all the places where America currently is not its best self.”

“legacy of forcing the nation”

“legacy of forcing the nation”

How Democratic! But, there is room for improvement!

“America currently is not its best self.”

Young BurnYouOuts, and Angry Black Lesson Givers, did not vote for Hillary, and encouraged others to do the same. They claimed Hillary and Trump were just alike. How wrong can you be. These two groups think they taught old white liberals a good lesson, and we deserve whats coming to us from the Republicans. We should have listened to them, and let them lead us. We aren’t that stupid, and are teachable. If we don’t do as they say, the same thing is going to happen to us next election.

Because Ryan is going to cut medicare, and other huge hunks of the Social Safety Net, that will hurt the Baby Boomers at the end of their life, I suggest WE REGISTER AS REPUBLICANS and vote for our kind so they can hold office, and disrupt the system from within. Frank Leon Roberts and his bullshit history lessons – don’t matter! I challenge him to a debate. I will inform him of my Radical German Socialist grandfathers, who fought to free White Serfs from bondage in Europe, and when they lost, they fled to America, picked up some more guns, and killed Confederate slave owners, and their defenders, by the tens of thousands.

DON’T HANG YOUR GUILT TRIP ON ME!

Marilyn Reed and my black neighbor did not want to hear about the Forty-Eighters, because they elected themselves the New Lesson Givers. They were going to give me Biblical Lessons, and lessons on how I can improve my natural racists tendencies all white men are born with. When she came back there was a hidden SELFISH reason the Union fought the Johnny Rebs, I pointed the German Union soldiers didn’t know about any alleged conspiracy, and they lay down their lives so black slaves could be free!

Hillary is made out to be a Blatant Dictator who only wants power for her lily-white self. Power to do WHAT? The Democrats have been creating an umbrella of protection for many folks who have been persecuted. Planned Parenthood says it will never give up, and is putting forth REAL RADICAL plans on how to battle the Trumpites.

“aggressively woo minority voters”

aggressively woo minority voters”

Why is this even a consideration? Let BLM go bother the Republicans for stuff that matters – to them! Do they already understand Republicans don’t give a shit? So, they waste the caring of the Democrats? Who is wooing who?

Blacks are employing Angry Threatening Wooing! Have you lost your mind? You chose to spread the lie that Hillary was just promoting her self, so she alone would own power over all woman. Not like that unselfish Black Man. Trump needn’t bother going after her. Black Lives Matter was on the job, they in sore need of another image to glaze over the fact, many blacks are dangerous super predators who are armed to the teeth and shooting in all directions. These are Super Selfish Takers – not givers!

Hillary Clinton is using the Democratic National Convention to aggressively woo minority voters, whom she is relying on to put her over the top in November, and she enlisted President Obama to spearhead the effort with a keynote speech Wednesday.”

You Lesson Givers, can have the Democratic Party all to yourselves. WE Lesson Recievers will not be there for you. As usual, WE will be fighting the Real Bad Guys – where they live!  We will hold hundreds of Republican seats in Congress, and the Senate, and in State Government. We will disrupt. We will filibuster. We will demand more of a voice!  And, WE will not have to cater to, cowtow to, the Whiny Dictating Crybabies, who want to own power, and any power will do.

Come Monday, I am going to re-register as a Republican, and look for an office to run for in my town. I will do my best to further divide the Republican Party, and along with like minded White Radicals, make sure it is NEVER UNITED!

I am going to use the painting above as my rallying flag. Do I need to explain why?

WHITE PUSSY MATTERS

“The bitter infighting that plagued Donald Trump’s campaign during the Republican presidential primary is starting to spill over into his team’s efforts to establish an administration and political operation, according to more than half a dozen sources familiar with the planning efforts.

The tensions played a role in a Friday shakeup in which the president-elect replaced his transition team chief Chris Christie with his running mate Mike Pence. Sources familiar with the move say it was precipitated partly by clashes between Christie’s allies and rival factions on the transition team, as well as Trump’s influential son-in-law Jared Kushner.”

Karl Frick, a German immigrant who joined a Unionist Missouri regiment, wrote to his mother in Germany – who was as unfamiliar with America as though it was on Mars – about the treatment of blacks in America.

”The black people…are certainly human beings, just black instead of white, but…are treated like animals and sold at will, which any civilized human being must be against,” he wrote. He told his mother that he hoped that when the war ended the government would “free the Negroes and give them…land.”5

A Brooklyn woman who became an anti-bullying crusader after suffering a brutal attack was busted for assaulting a 74-year-old Donald Trump supporter, cops said Friday.

Shacara McLaurin, 23, got into a shouting match with victim James Durkan during a Thursday anti-Trump rally near the President-elect’s namesake building on Fifth Ave., cops said.

The fracas started as an argument over who should have won the presidential election — and quickly escalated, a police source said.

She was yelling ‘Black lives matter’ and he started yelling ‘All lives matter’ and it went from there,” the source said.

But the bid to reunite the coalition of black and Hispanic voters who were instrumental in Mr. Obama’s two White House wins ran into powerful headwinds Tuesday from the Black Lives Matter movement. Black protesters took to streets with calls to shut down the convention just as Mrs. Clinton received the nomination and made history as the first female standard-bearer for a major political party.

As several hundred Black Lives Matters protesters marched through the city toward the convention at the Wells Fargo Center, the crowd chanted, “Hell no, DNC/We won’t vote for Hillary!”

Werlau, a 26-year-old computer science student from Florida, voted for Libertarian Gary Johnson in this week’s presidential election, after supporting Bernie Sanders during the Democratic primaries. After Sanders lost the Democratic nomination, Werlau said there was no chance he’d support Clinton. “I kind of lost hope in the election,” he says. And Werlau says his vote for Johnson wasn’t a spoiler, because he “wasn’t going to vote for Hillary in the first place.”

I think Black Lives Matter has already had an incredible legacy of forcing the nation to have a serious conversation about its defects and blindspots. I think the legacy of Black Lives Matter is that it will have contributed significantly to the development of American democracy. It’s helping America be its best self by pointing to all the places where America currently is not its best self. So I think that’s a part of the legacy — and the fact that this came from young people, the fact that this movement came from people who were largely not college-educated will have a huge legacy in terms of showing people that everyday people matter. Not just fancy folk, but that everyday people can change a nation and can change the political and cultural climate of a country.

Too many black folks think it was armed black slaves who won their freedom by fighting the Confederates. Without the Germans, we would be two nations – and millions of black people would be slaves! Black people have a problem thanking some white people who were on their side. Why would they want all white people to feel guilty? Hundreds of thousands of white folks died fighting each other. Thousands of the dead were White Abolitionists.

Antagonism to American abolitionists did not lessen the anti-slavery impulse among Germans. That sentiment was on display in a letter written by immigrant Albert Augustin to his family in Germany a few months after the start of the war.

I’ve seen it often enough how the poor slaves are sold away from their wives and children and beaten with a whip until their skin hangs in tatters,” he wrote. He swore “death and damnation to the slave traders,” whom he blamed for the war as well as for the abuse of the slaves.4

An anti-Trump protester in Portland —  one of thousands who turned out in several cities nationwide Friday night and early Saturday — was shot and injured during a confrontation on a Willamette River Bridge, according to police.

The victim was taken to a hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries as police sought a male suspect, who apparently fled in his vehicle.

The march by hundreds through the city, some disrupting traffic and spray-painting graffiti, was one of several protests in major cities, including New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami, Washington, D.C., and Nashville in the wake of the election of Donald Trump as president. Small protests also were held in Detroit; Minneapolis; Kansas City, Missouri; Olympia, Washington and Iowa City.

The demonstrations in Portland began as a peaceful rally at City Hall on Friday afternoon only to be stopped by police after protesters reportedly split into groups and vandalized parts of the city.

Through the night, flash bangs and tear gas were used to disperse protesters. Police advised the crowd that their gathering was considered an unlawful assembly and they were subject to arrest.

The shooting on Portland’s Morrison bridge broke out following a confrontation between a man in a vehicle and a demonstrator, police said. It wasn’t clear whether the dispute stemmed from politics.

“The suspect got out of the vehicle and fired multiple shots injuring the victim,” police said in a statement. The victim, according to one witness, was shot in the leg, Oregonlive.com reports.

On Twitter, police said the suspect is described as African-American male in his late teens, wearing a dark hoodie and saggy blue jeans.

PHILADELPHIA — Hillary Clinton is using the Democratic National Convention to aggressively woo minority voters, whom she is relying on to put her over the top in November, and she enlisted President Obama to spearhead the effort with a keynote speech Wednesday.

But the bid to reunite the coalition of black and Hispanic voters who were instrumental in Mr. Obama’s two White House wins ran into powerful headwinds Tuesday from the Black Lives Matter movement. Black protesters took to streets with calls to shut down the convention just as Mrs. Clinton received the nomination and made history as the first female standard-bearer for a major political party.

As several hundred Black Lives Matters protesters marched through the city toward the convention at the Wells Fargo Center, the crowd chanted, “Hell no, DNC/We won’t vote for Hillary!”

White activists outnumbered black ones in the Black Lives Matter demonstration. But young black men and women in the crowd said they weren’t voting for Mrs. Clinton. Many said they would back Green Party candidate Jill Stein.

Samantha Eusebio joined the march spontaneously on her way home from work as a museum educator. She said she used to support Mrs. Clinton.

As America continues to absorb the results of a truly contentious and historic presidential election, one group of voters may be particularly upset: Bernie Sanders supporters. For months over the course of the campaign, many in Sanders’ ranks said he was the only candidate with a sure shot at beating Trump, that he could reach working class voters better than Hillary Clinton could, and that he offered a true progressive agenda that Clinton could not.

But these supporters never got the chance to be proven right — or wrong. So now, some of them vent.

“Schadenfreude,” said Philip Werlau, a Bernie Sanders supporter, when asked his feelings about this week’s election results. “That is the German word for taking pleasure in someone else’s misfortune. … Because I don’t want Trump to be president. But I’m happy that what I perceived as unfair tactics lost.”

Werlau, a 26-year-old computer science student from Florida, voted for Libertarian Gary Johnson in this week’s presidential election, after supporting Bernie Sanders during the Democratic primaries. After Sanders lost the Democratic nomination, Werlau said there was no chance he’d support Clinton. “I kind of lost hope in the election,” he says. And Werlau says his vote for Johnson wasn’t a spoiler, because he “wasn’t going to vote for Hillary in the first place.”

Werlau said he is still angry about what he thinks was unfair treatment of Sanders and his supporters by the Democratic National Committee. He and many others felt the nominating process for the party favored Clinton and that the DNC actively fought to make her the nominee. An email dump from WikiLeaks during the week of the Democratic National Convention this past July, which Sanders supporters say showed proof of the DNC tipping the scales in Clinton’s favor, only confirmed those fears for many Sanders supporters.

“It’s far behind perception at this point, it’s factual that the party leadership definitely put its hands on the scale for Secretary Clinton,” said Dallas Fowler, a Sanders delegate turned Clinton voter from Los Angeles. “And I think post-primary not dealing with that effectively as a party drove a number of people [away from Clinton].”

Fowler, like most Sanders supporters, eventually ended up backing Clinton in the general election. The conventional wisdom was that Clinton could get most disaffected Sanders voters back if she moved further to the left after the convention. And she did, most notably with a college affordability plan Clinton announced after clinching the nomination, which borrowed heavily from Sanders’ agenda and was critical in securing the Vermont senator’s endorsement. But for some Sanders supporters, and maybe enough of them to swing the election, nothing Clinton could do would win them over.

As you mentioned, we tend to process things as mainstr

A lot of academia is focused on exploring moments in the past. How did you go about determining an appropriate syllabus for a course situated in the present?

There’s a lot of stuff that we don’t get to cover that I wish we did. Like, I wish we were able to spend much more time talking about the global dimensions of BLM; I wanted to do a whole week on Black Lives Matter’s relationship to Israel and the Israel-Palestine debate, which has become a really contentious conversation. In terms of what made it onto the syllabus and how I determined the material, I basically wanted students to be able to leave the class being able to have a dinner table conversation with their parents, or their friends, or whoever, on three topics: “What is the history of the Black Lives Matter movement? What are the specific demands or legislative concerns of the movement? What are the internal debates happening within the movement?”

With it being so contemporary in focus, that’s where I come in really as the lecturer to really provide historical context. For example, when it comes to the Black Lives Matter policy platform, I open up class by talking about the Black Panthers in 1968 Ten-Point Platform, which is in some ways almost identical to the platform of the movement for black lives in 2016. So my job is to help the students understand that our current moment is informed by historical precedents.

  1. Reblogged this on rosamondpress and commented:

    It is now being reported that Trump recieved 16% of the black male vote. I did not know about Bannon and his Garu when I authored this post where I talk about the Forty-Eighers that fought the confederacy to free black slaves. “Trump saw a 16.5 percentage-point increase in backing from African-American voters in a Los Angeles Times/University of Southern California tracking poll, up from 3.1 percent on Sept. 10 to 19.6 percent through Friday.
    Meanwhile, the same poll showed Clinton’s support among that group plummeting from 90.4 percent on Sept. 10 to 71.4 percent.” Reveal’s host Al Letson talked to Spencer the day after the election. You can hear the whole conversation above and read the transcript below. While the months of campaigning were often devoid of real exchanges of ideas, this is the opposite: a frank and deep conversation, revealing starkly different views of the same world.
    For instance, Spencer tells Al his long-term dream is an “ethnostate” – a territory set aside for people of European descent.
    “So that we would always have a safe space,” Spencer says. “We would always have a homeland for us. Very similar to … how Jews conceive of Israel.”
    Living all mixed together, he suggests, has not worked out that well.
    Spencer also says he believes that Trump opens the door for white identity politics to become an overt and welcome part of mainstream conversation in America for the first time.
    Al, who is African American, asks how Spencer is different from members of the Ku Klux Klan or other racists who “hung people up from trees.”
    His answer is worth hearing.
    Spencer is well-educated and well-spoken, from a mainstream conservative family. Reveal profiles him in our upcoming episode and podcast, in partnership with Mother Jones magazine.
