Since Cain killed Abel, the world has experienced hate and violence in varying degrees.
Racism, a characteristic of those who hate others because of their immutable attributes, has now moved from the local neighborhoods, up to and including some in Biden’s White House administration.
Hundreds of millions of humans have been killed by communism, world wars, slavery, and more recently gun violence in urban areas and violence committed by domestic terrorists including BLM and ANTIFA.
The fake news network, CNN, just followed up on the Kyle Rittenhouse “not guilty” verdict by leading with an op-ed from John Blake proclaiming there is “nothing more frightening in America today than an angry white man.”
In it though, Blake admits the “vast majority of White men are no menace to society,” citing the numerous left-wing men who “wallowed tear gas and braved rubber bullets while marching with demonstrators during last year’s protests over the murder of George Floyd,” Blake asserted that the time has come to put a certain character trait on trial: “a vision of White masculinity that allows some White men to feel as if they ‘can rule and brutalize without consequence.’”
“This angry White man has been a major character throughout US history,” Blake lamented. “He gave the country slavery, the slaughter of Native Americans, and Jim Crow laws. His anger also helped fuel the January 6 insurrection at the Capitol.”
In what goes against all the FBI and local police departments’ gun violence and domestic abuse data by race and per capita rate, Blake subjectively insists that “It’s this angry White man — not the Black or brown man you see approaching on the street at night — who poses the most dangerous threat to democracy in America.”
Though Blake acknowledged the 2017 attack in which a Bernie Sanders supporter attempted to assassinate Republican members of Congress, he once again reveals his own bias by saying he believes that too many white conservatives fantasize about killing their opponents:
Talking about assaulting and killing political enemies has become so normal — and seemingly acceptable — in conservative circles today that a White man felt comfortable enough to ask a right-wing activist at a public forum in Idaho last month:
“When do we get to use the guns? … How many elections are they going to steal before we kill these people?”
Add to this toxic political atmosphere another element: Laws that not only protect White vigilante violence but, in some cases, seem to embolden vigilantes.
Even though no guns were brought by the Trump supporters to the January 6th protest at the U.S. Capitol building, Blake further feared that the conservative-leaning Supreme Court could make gun ownership more legal throughout the United States, which he says would therefore encourage vigilante justice similar to what America witnessed during the post-Civil War reconstruction.
He cited the January 6 riot on Capitol Hill as a “sequel” to those violent years.
“The January 6 insurrection wasn’t unprecedented. In many ways, it was a sequel,” he added, citing an 1898 case in Wilmington, North Carolina, where white supremacists killed members of the multi-racial local government.
People with views like Blake are divisive, and part of the anti-white movement making it impossible for those like him, in many communities, to work together for safety in their communities.
