It was just hours after I read this that the video of the murder of Ahmaud Arbery began trending. I checked Redstate and Breitbart, and sure enough, the racist white supremacists are out in force trying to excuse this murder. Every. Single. Time. this happens, the racists circle the wagons and try to put the blame on the Black man.

What angers me even more is the fact that there’s millions of “conservative” Whites out there who use every excuse in the book to keep from examining what happened, who deliberately keep themselves ignorant just so they don’t have to acknowledge the fact that they’re standing with the white supremacists.

On a side note, a decade or so ago I went onto Redstate and posted a comment about how wrong some racist action was…and I was immediately banned. I knew it beforehand, but this was just further confirmation that they actually go out of their way to prevent any of their faithful to hear anything from outside the insanity they’re fed every day in their echo chamber.

The only difference between America’s right-wing and Nazi Germany, the Soviet Union, and North Korea is that in those nations, the people had no physical access to anything the government didn’t want them to see…whereas today’s right-wingers choose of their own free will to read only those stories and opinions that fit right-wing dogma.

Retired Navy. Inveterate contrarian. If I haven’t done it, I’ve usually done something close.
