Gun Nuts, Donald Trump, and the Up-Coming Race War They Want to Start
Why are so many Southern and rural white men building arsenals in their basements?
Why are so many Southern and rural white men so afraid of blacks, gays, women, immigrants, culture, education, and science…and therefore support the Fascism of Donald Trump? Why are they trying to foment a race war? So many of them remind me of the Germans of the 1930’s. Hurting economically, ready to lash out, and blaming everyone but themselves.
Indeed they do cling to their guns and their bibles. I like the Bible (most of it at least), and I respect trained self-defense. I support the military and the police when they act lawfully. But those preparing for the up-coming race war with their arsenal, bunkers, and tinfoil hats are indeed armed and dangerous.
Yes, today’s paranoid gun nuts (still, thank God, a minority of gun owners) are extremely dangerous. They blame Democrats for Trump. They blame Israel for Hitler. They blame gay people for Matthew Shepard. They blame blacks for racism. They blame immigrants for corporate outsourcing. They blame anyone and everyone without ever looking in the mirror. Or realizing that they look and sound ridiculous. Ridiculous and pathetic but still dangerous. A lot like the KKK.
Boy, a heckuva lot of Southern and rural white men sure love bullying, violence, and war. I know. I grew up in Tennessee.
Maybe the better example is not Germany in the 1930’s but the South in the 1860’s.
