If you have been following the events in Tennessee, you should know by now that it is a microcosm of what is coming soon to every State in the Union. The Republican Party hides no more its fascist or racist behavior. It’s in your face and out in the open. In fact, the GOP is morphing into American Nazism, using the latest move to expel two black Democratic House of Representatives as an experiment for a test tube political party that will ultimately use violence to dictate its agenda. That’s how it all started in Germany circa 1930. The few began cancelling all those that stood in their way.
What happened in Tennessee is truly historic for those who are paying attention. Historic enough for President Joe Biden to weigh-in with these heavy-hearted remarks:
Expelling or silencing duly elected officials are usually the first steps towards dictatorship, if one studies the history of how countries slide into the oblivion of evil doing.
THE EVIL WITHIN IS MORPHING BLATANTLY
The evil in the Tennessee legislators, men like Andrew Farmer and William Lamberth represent, is morphing before our eyes into a nightmare of gargantuan proportions. Long gone are the insinuative nuances and the long-tailed and twisted explanations of a policy to be replaced by open racism and open hatred of black Americans, and, more importantly, the making of a new political party heading towards fascism and Nazism as it belittles the voices, which elected officials to the legislative body of Tennessee.
Expelling or silencing duly elected officials are usually the first steps towards dictatorship, if one studies the history of how countries slide into the oblivion of evil doing. What happened in Tennessee is unmistakably anti-American and anti-Democratic. The GOP in that racist State, both Farmer and Lamberth have come to represent officially, are now flagrantly defying democracy and unashamedly exercising racism in one ugly move towards authoritarianism. Other legislators in red States are watching, and it won’t be long before Republicans use similar tactics to silence democracy.
In an effort to understand what happened in Tennessee, we urge you to spend 18 minutes watching this video of Lawrence O’Donnell explain it all in plain English. Trust us when we tell you it will be one of the best 18 informative minutes of your life this week.
Thanks to the danger of Donald Trump, we now have white racists legislators brazenly condem democracy and condone violence in schools.
THE RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS IS NOW THE RIGHT TO KILL CHILDREN
If you consider the reasons behind ousting the two black democratic legislators, the former Honorable Rep. Justin Pearson and the former Honorable Rep. Justin Jones, you would also get off your couch and vote for the first time in the next election.
Both legislators were peacefully protesting the fact that the Republican-controlled TN legislative body has refused to consider any law related to the use of assault weapons against our children in schools. Both Pearson, Jones, and Gloria Johnson the legislators failed to oust because of the color of her white skin, were upset that a gunman carrying an AR-15 killed three Christian white school children, while the white Republicans simply walked away from their responsibilities to the people of Tennessee.
And when three members of the legislators protested vehemently against gun violence in schools, the Republican racists in Tennessee, led by Andrew Farmer and William Lamberth, shut them down and threw them out.
Thanks to the danger of Donald Trump, we now have white racists legislators brazenly condemn democracy and condone violence in schools.
