On January 6, the world took a memorable snapshot of White Supremacists storming the Capitol because they fairly lost an election. This kind of behavior demands that we put the whole group under a microscope. In this case, please count the people that suffered at the hands of White Supremacists. Their barbarity and their savagery span centuries of wars against the innocent with tragic results.
We could start with colonialism, but that’s for another Blog. Let us start with the groups that suffered in Europe and the Americas over the last four hundred years.
“The centuries-long genocidal program of the US settler-colonial regimen has largely been omitted from history.”
FIRST CAME THE NATIVE INDIGENOUS INDIANS
You will find no history books that detail the real history of what the White Supremacists did to the native Indian population in this country ever since the Mayflower landed on U.S. shores. Unless you delve into privately-written books non white historians were compelled to write. Books like An Indigenous Peoples’ History of the United States, by Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz, which debunked the theories of earlier history books that America was vastly a wasted land thinly populated by inferior humans.
A synopsis of the book reads:
Today, the White Supremacists have relegated the native Indians to arid lands with little or no education to lift them from their abject poverty and the white man profiting from selling them alcoholic beverages. This is the ugly face of the White Supremacists like Senator Ron Johnson and all the white men in the GOP trying to suppress the minorities from voting.
As many as 200,000 Confederate soldiers died in the civil war just for the right to own a black slave.
THEN CAME BLACK AMERICANS
Slavery is one person owning another practiced often by the same Bible-touting hypocrites who claim their immoral behavior as sanctioned by their God. Even when some moral God-fearing white people among them forced them to relinquish slavery, they hardly abandoned the practice. Do read about “apprenticeship” in Mississippi post 1865.
As many as 200,000 Confederate soldiers died in the civil war just for the right to own a black slave. It’s the White Supremacists ultimate sacrifice for the right to reign supreme over all other races, and even though they lost the war, statistics today show just how far they would be willing to go to continue killing black people. Their barbaric commitment is a danger to this republic and the future of our nation. How many blacks must die before we wage a serious war on White Supremacy?
Today, those doing most of the killing are police White Supremacists who infiltrated the law enforcement agencies across all its layers. Among those who forced their way into the Capitol are armed forces, policemen, fire fighters, politicians, and the garden variety of Neo-Nazis.
Just count the people that suffered at the hands of White Supremacists. There is a lot more than you think. Let us keep counting.
In economics, there is a concept economists call “opportunity cost”, which, if we apply it in our example, means that the White Supremacists have really killed 19 million Jews, not just six millions.
COUNT THE PEOPLE THAT SUFFERED: JEWS OF EUROPE
One can read and watch many mediums on the subject of Hitler’s Arianism, a form of extreme White Supremacy, that tragically befell the Jewish people in the 12 years of Hitler’s reign of terror. Six million innocent Jews perished at the hands of the White Supremacists in Europe, and if that is not enough, the persecution and the hate continue today as we witnessed among the Trump supporters storming the Capitol.
According to an article in Haartez, there would be 32 million Jews living globally today, as opposed to 13 millions, had the Holocaust not take place. All the result of White Supremacy that Donald Trump has energized in this country. In economics, there is a concept economists call “opportunity cost”, which, if we apply it in our example, means that the White Supremacists have really killed 19 million Jews, not just six millions.
I apologize to no one when I blast people like Senators Ron Johnson, or Representatives Mo Brooks or his racist White Supremacist buddies Reps. Andy Biggs and Paul Gosar. They and their ancestors have too much blood on their hands to keep quiet about their barbarity.
We need to eradicate them fully from ever harming, with their violence, more people that don’t look like them, nor wish to.
