"Its too dangerous here, lets go home" said police at a violent white nationalist riot on a University of Virginia campus in Charolettesville, Virgina. Lets be clear, these white nationalists are domestic terrorists and should not be allowed any rights as citizens in our country. We strip rights of canibus smokers, and minor offences by blacks and people of color in a heartbeat, making sure those rights are permenently stripped by facilitating lengthy prison sentences and undue bail practices by the masses. When Black Lives Matter protests they are demonized and criminalized, leading to violent responses by police in their own communities while in Charlottesville, VA. police allow a speeding car to maim and kill protestors that are protesting AGAINST nationalistic ideologies. When Black Lives Matter protest police gass and arrest masses of African Americans, how many arrests have been made in Virginia at this clearly violent protest? None. This racist double standard has to stop if we are to again assume a super power position in a global environment.
In Germany it is illegal to waive the Nazi flag, why is it not illegal here when so many lives were lost to protect the lives of innocent people. While I understand the dogma of freedom of speech, white nationalist movements that create a violent atmosphere should be shut down with the speed of wind. Too many people have died in a country founded on the economics of slavery. Why are we even facilitating the advancement of white nationalist groups in America, have we not come far enough only to take several steps backward?
The face of terrorism has changed on a grand scale and America seems to be oblivious to the fact that 73% of mass killings in the US since 1983 have been commited by white men, they are the face of terrorism in America. The United States has continually treated white supremacists with more sympathy and respect than folks standing up for civil rights. When are we going to realize that freedom of speech that leads to violence perpetrated on another because of their race, ethniity, religious beiefs and sexual orientation is a gross injustice instead of saying ..."Its too dangerous here, lets go home".
No one is born haing another person because of the color of his skin or his background or his religion. Peole must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love. For love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite. -Nelson Mandela
