Just look at the word. It sounds like it could be a 1970’s disco dance craze. Or perhaps it’s a racist jungle cry from an old Tarzan movie. It’s neither. It’s something far worse, darker, and it’s here.
The second most deadly terrorist attack on US soil was committed by a white nationalist. Yes, not a “Muslim” terrorist. Not a foreigner, but a white, native born American. Read it again slowly: The second most deadly terrorist attack on US soil was committed by a white nationalist. Tim McVeigh, April 19, 1995, Oklahoma City, OK, The Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building.
Ask yourself what that means. The second most deadly terrorist attack on US soil was committed by a white man. Yet? Federal law doesn’t allow for designating white, domestic terror groups as terrorists. Why?
Tree of Life Synagogue. “Defend” the whatever in Charlottesville. Pulse night club, Orlando. Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church, Charleston, SC. The list is long. Go look. I won’t do the work for you. By and large, the terror in this country is done by white men. Yet….
Federal law does not allow for the designation of domestic groups as terrorist.
So about that “disco craze”, the boogaloos Hate without the white hood. Read it. I won’t do the work for you. You want to be anti-racist? Then commit the time and learn. I won’t, can’t, do it for you. Look up the Manson murders. This is not new. Charlie taught his crew that a race war was coming. The Tate/LaBianca murders were about racial supremacy. This is nothing new. Charlie taught that we’ll kill a few, the blacks will be blamed, we’ll hide in the dessert when it starts, and come back when it’s done to create the proper white society.
Boogaloo. It’s not a dance craze.
Attomwaffen Division. OK. That name doesn’t sound so benign. And it’s not. It’s hate. Started here. In the FUCKING UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. Yes, the language and capitalization are meant to offend. If this doesn’t offend? Don’t care. WAKE THE FUCK UP. The Attomwaffen? They trained. To beat, to hate, to divide. It includes showing up at #BLM and other rallies, starting violence, beating protestors. They were part of the violence in Charlottesville. Apparently they were the “good people” on that side. Some crossed a line, violated laws. So what did they do? Went to Europe to join their “white brothers”. Hate doesn’t know national boundaries. I’m calling you out to learn. Offering pebbles on a path. But? Educate yourself. I can’t do it.
Even Germany, where hate reached a level that we must fight to never know, a place that teaches it was wrong, who holds themselves to be accountable for their past, can’t stop it, can’t get past it. It persists.
“Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty; power is ever stealing from the many to the few.” – Wendell Phillips, 1852
Hate is alive and well in our United States of America. And it’s not sleeping.
