White Nationalists Rampage... And Trump Says Nothing

Is this the New America?

Welcome to Bethel, Ohio, population 2,711.  Bethel is in every way your average Midwestern American town.  One High School.  One Middle School.  Surrounded by farms.

A group of Bethel citizens decided to stage a Black Lives Matter demonstration.  Not an ANTIFA riot, which our President and his cronies have labeled the entire movement, (Side note... where exactly is ANTIFA?  They keep telling us they're here, all of the protests are them... yet I can't find a single example of ANTIFA violence)

Less than a hundred people.  Teachers, councilmen, even a retired policeman.  Holding signs, chanting slogans.  Nearly all white.

But word had gotten around.  Rumors of busses full of those phantom ANTIFA rioters were on their way.  

And where did these rumors start?   Did ANTIFA post online that they were coming?  Did they post an announcement?  Why would these folks think that, in a country with demonstrations going on daily across every major city in America, they would descend on tiny Bethel, Ohio?

Because this is what their president tells them.

But it wasn't ANTIFA who stormed Bethel.

Twice you just saw protesters... small white women, not big scary ANTIFA "terrorists", assaulted.  The second one was struck... and if you noticed, a police officer simply escorted her from the pack of dogs.... saying nothing to any of them.  Imagine if those had been black men.  Half would be dead now and Trump would still be tweeting about them.

You may have noticed the police officer standing there....

The man with the beard is a Bethel resident.  All of the protesters were local.  And yet you have the actual rioters chanting USA  and telling him to "go back where he came from".

Welcome to Trump's new America.  As he and his minions keep screaming at us about the ANTIFA hordes, the truth is they have been, up until now, nothing more than phantoms.  Meanwhile, 65% of the acts of violence perpetrated on people during the riots have been committed by white people, most of whom are members of far RIGHT hate groups.  It's happening all over America; Black Lives Matters protesters march, and these right wing anti-protesters show up... often armed to the teeth... and bring violence to what were peaceful protests.  After which Trump Tweets about the violence, blaming ANTIFA.  Look at David Underwood.  Both Trump and Kayleigh McEnany continue to mention the federal officer's death during the riots, but not ONCE has either mentioned that he was killed by two WHITE people... mambers of the "Boogaloo Bois", a white nationalist group that has been committing violence across America and blaming the Black Lives Matter movement.

But this is, as I said, Trump's new America.  He spent the entire Independence Day weekend railing against his imaginary ANTIFA terrorists, speaking about people pulling down statues... many of men who owned other men, many of men who killed other men for the right to won those men... as if they were Nazis.  Meanwhile, many people who actually ARE Nazis are running around terrorizing Americans who are trying to ACTUALLY Make America Great Again.... Men armed with assault rifles, screaming racial slurs, assaulting not statues of concrete, but actual American people.

Yes, this is Trump's America.  As a pandemic is slaughtering waves of Americans, he is focused on riling up the hatred of this land, pitting Americans against each other,  inventing dark skinned villains for people to hate as his own disciples spread hatred and violence.

And the most terrifying aspect?  It's all obvious.  Did you see all of the Tweets Trump sent out condemning all of these actual acts of terror and violence?  You did not.  Nor did I.  Because these are Trump's people. 

The man is starting a race war in America.  And we are allowing it to happen.

Here is what he said today:

Dangerous MOBS of far-left groups are running through our streets and causing absolute mayhem. They are DESTROYING our cities and rioting - it’s absolute madness.
It’s important that EVERY American comes together at a time like this to send a united message that we will not stand for their radical actions any longer. We're calling on YOU to make a public statement and add your name to stand with President Trump against ANTIFA.
Please add your name IMMEDIATELY to stand with your President and his decision to declare ANTIFA a Terrorist Organization.

But not a word about the people actually commiting most of the acts he speaks of; he's literally no different than the Racists burning black business while wearing brown paint and calling local news to make sure they catch these "black" protesters in the act or the white men stringing black me up from trees in California.  (And yes, both of those things actually happened.)

Do not sit and be quiet.  Bethel could be your town.  It could be mine.  Many of us ignored COVID for far too long.  And now look at us.  Are we going to ignore this as well?  Stand the f*ck up.  Be heard.  If we don't... we are part of the problem.  And in November, send a message.

This is a time of revolution for the United States.  A time where we will, as a country, choose who and what we will become as a nation.  One saying keeps coming to mind... perhaps outdated, perhaps obsolete.  But terrifyingly true nonetheless.

United we stand.
Divided we fall.
