Trump’s Cult?
Try Trump’s Klan


"Yes, the hate is great, and it’s blind - we’re
all sub-human. History illustrates just that. The
deeds of white America, even before the inception
of the country, going back to Pilgrims exemplifies
that what we’re seeing today is merely . . .
'business as usual.'"

Same thing, right? Two sides of the same 1863 Confederate coin? Either way what’s the difference here in Trump’s America, 2018?

Dig it, even Republicans are now declaring the obvious: Lord Trump has a “cult-like” grip on the Republican TEA Party, from the top political tier, down-to the rank n’ file rednecks. From tow-truck drivers in Tupelo Mississippi to teachers in Tacoma Washington. There's no debate - this is the unofficial/official “Party of White people,” specifically and particularly white males, and their (possessive/ownership) “gutless” white women. Trump’s GOP is the party of “Global Manifest Destiny” and “American Exceptionalism“ which are both a polite, yet full of shit way of saying “White Supremacy,” akin-to putting’ lipstick on a Klansman . . . .”

This can only get worse, and it will.

Why didn’t we, we Americans of color, the descendants of those who were enslaved, interned and had genocide waged upon us, why didn’t we see this backlash coming?

How did this era of 21st century Negroes not see what I and I’d surmise maybe 10% to 20% of we Afro-Americans saw? We saw Trump coming like I’d see Beyonce’s “behind” comin’ from 2 nautical miles away . . . seriously.

I observed this “Confederate-backlash” brewing since 1980 with Ray-Gun launching his backlash presidency from Philadelphia . . . Mississippi. I saw the hatred ignited with the election of President Obama. I knew they’d “hound” him like Nat Turner on the run from day-one. And they did. However, I saw Trump looming on the horizon two-plus years ago and my peers dismissed me as the conspiratorial, listening too much to white folks paranoid dude who doesn't trust white folks and doesn't know enough “cool” white folks.

Negros please!.

Ponder this poignant point: the same racist mindset which facilitated cotton plantations, Indian reservations and Japanese internment camps still lives in the heart and soul of a damn near monolithically thinking white America today. As a people, as a culture, represented by Trump . . . they’ve no problem, no qualms about breaking-up Latino families at the southern border - Trump, Stephen Miller, Bannock, Giuliani - the poster-punks for White America who absolutely do represent, reflect and embody the morals, values and ethics of White America . . . don’t give a damn about breaking up families. White America - on a whole, and that’s scary . . . they sleep well at night, despite knowing they’re emboldening and enabling the tearing-of infants from their mother and father’s arms.

They’re good. They’re okay with it. No apologies.

Good lord, who does this?

Who does this? White America.

Who sacrifices children, uses them as a prop to deter others? White America. Who handed-out measles infected blankets to American Indians? Who injected black folks with syphilis unbeknownst to them?

How? Why? I’d argue there’s an culturally inherent “indifference” to other forms of humanity. And please note: they’re doing it for the financial profit: I’d wager there’re private enterprises who’re pimping these innocents. As well as this is “preventive” voter-repression as far “Trump-publicans” see it - these migrants are potential/likely Democrats in their small-minds.

Now wait, former GOP head Michael Steele, a black Republican was on MSNBC warning folks that if Trump is doing this to these children of color, what makes you think he won’t do it to yours?

Steele is the black crow in the mine shaft: I submit if Steele thinks we’re, as a nation, not too far from this “Confederate-minded” ultra-White House imprisoning/interning/detaining . . . whatever you want to call it Americans of color they've deemed as “home grown terrorist” - then I think we, as a people ought-to sit-up and take notice. We’re the dissenters and hard-heads Trump was referring-to when he stated he wanted his people to also “sit-up, and pay-attention” when he speaks.

He’s about to get our attention.

Trump and the White America which willingly and proudly supports him, they well understand what’s about to happen, we, the little people will be out in the streets protesting this and other Draconian measures coming down the pike, and Trump’s stormtroopers can’t wait to let the dogs, tanks, anti-aircraft guns loose on Americans of color.

The Purge.

Americans of color are 3rd class Americans - this administration, and the white nation that supports them will have no trouble locking our asses up, taking our children.

Wake-up black and brown people. Yes, Trump’s heading-up a national coast-to-coast cult, but it’s also the reincarnation of the Ku Klux Klan on a mass bases, merely minus the white sheets. Trump’s supporters are blindly in his racist/sexist/elitist coffin-corner. Yes, you bet, Trump could have black folks lynched in Times Square and 89% of his Republican TEA Party would back him, just as they’d rationalize, minimize and justify the heartless and cruel breaking-up families at the southern border.

US History 101 is replete with this-type barbaric behavior. That’s why I’m so disgusted with the “shock n’ awe” response I see and hear all around me. Let me be brutally sharp, blunt and honest: there’s not a damn thing “shocking” about what we’re all witnessing, nothing. This is what I expected this administration to do, and this is the response of his “cult/base” I anticipated. Why my black n’ tan brothers n’ sisters are “taken-aback” by these inhuman acts of inhumanity, I don’t know.

Oh yes I do.

These people, my people are “lost,” blinded by the 400 year long process we’ve endured, and over the last three or four generations of daddy-less families we’ve “raised” - and I employ that word with hesitation n’ reservation, for this is an era of Negroes who don’t know “jack-shit from Shinola . . .” And I can defend that sentiment all day long.

Tragically, most don’t know anything about math, science and literature compared-to their Euro-American (white) student peers. And don’t say a damn thing to me about their knowledge-of and thrust-for Afro-American history, American history, African history or world history. They know the history of rap maybe, or” Nike” or the NBA since 1990. Sorry, I’m telling the sad, embarrassing and highly uncomfortable burning-bush truth!

The vast-majority don’t know Isaac Newton from Huey P. Newton - and I can’t and don’t just blame the white power structure, I expect it from them! I blame the black family/church/village . . . Negroes and flies. Please!

Black America needs an “historical enlightenment” . . . or an suppository.

As Malcolm X offered “a people who don’t know their history, are doomed to repeat it.”

Which is exactly what we’re doing because we, as a people are, once again, lost. If more Black men, ages 18 to 80 would have voted in 2016. . . King “Lear” Trump wouldn’t be at the throne. Had not 10% of Black America voted “for” this despicable, deplorable creature, those Latino immigrant families, fleeing the delayed and prolonged fallout of European colonialism and contemporary American intervention in their homelands, wouldn’t be torn apart like there are today.

Black America could have halted the Trump train, derailed it, but brother’s didn’t show-up.

We’d best show-up in the 2016 midterms elections, or this grand pooh bah of the Invisible Knights will show-out. It’s the “ballot or the bullet” in 2016 - if we don’t stop them now with our ballots, we’ll be defending our families with bullets sooner rather than later.

I Can’t even speak to the 35% or so of Latinos who backed this man - you’ve been employed as “useful tools” and “helpful idiots.” I hope what you’re witnessing is the 2:37 am wake-your asses up call you people, yes you people, who struggle with the notion of being “white” desperately needed.

Trump and White America don’t see you as “almost” or damn near white. You’re “brown niggers” as far as their concerned. Just as Indians are “red niggers” and Arabs are “sand niggers. Yes, they’ve multiple terms of endearment for those not like them. Yes, the hate is great, and it’s blind - we’re all sub-human. History illustrates just that. The deeds of white America, even before the inception of the country, going back to Pilgrims exemplifies that what we’re seeing today is merely . . . ”business as usual.” Columnist, Desi Cortez, who also writes for &, was hatched in the heart of Dixie, circa 1961, at the dawning of the age of Aquarius, the by-product of four dynamic individuals, Raised in South-Central LA, the 213.
