WHO ARE THE WHITE PEOPLE?

  “The founding revolutionaries excoriated and eviscerated religions creepy grasp on the VITAL ENERGY OF DEMOCRACY in the United States.”

a)  It all started with a Halloween costume
b)  The Vital energy of Democracy
c)   There is no Religion in the Marketplace
d)   Markets not Borders
e)   Dog Whistles
f)    Donut Shop Pundits
g)   Who are the White People?
h)   Intractable Dilemma
                           

    IT ALL STARTED WITH A HALLOWEEN COSTUME
           Here we go, we're buckled in and the ride into the future has started. You can go numb and pretend nothing is happening, or participate in the fun we are going to have making history and invalidating injustice.
           If the Constitution of the United States were embedded in all our hearts, this secret world of surveillance and spying would not exist. This is right wing authoritarianism run amok.
             Regime change in Libya was abhorrent, and it's why I could not find any enthusiasm for Hillary. I’m Bernie or Bust, and my opinion on Hilary was that she couldn’t even attract a disinterested cynicism, and was all for war of any sort. 
              Then there was the corporate invasion of Iraq which proceeded for 13 years with virtually no antiwar effort, once the wars began. In 2009, if Obama wound down the wars quickly after becoming president, it would have been all about what a coward and chickenshit he was.  This is how the GOP works, even after 13 years, members of the GOP say we should still be in Iraq. Hedging their bets, getting nothing done.
            The President somehow got his footing in the quicksand of Republican incontinence, and he salvaged George Bush’s wars, acting more like a republican than a republican. I called him the best republican president since Eisenhower. This is why Obama is sometimes called George Bush the Third for "engaging terrorists on the battlefield instead of in the homeland."   
            Some white people seemed obsessed with cleanliness and order, especially order. As my Facebook bio says, "White people have become sociologically inbred with their faith in authoritarian excess."  Unless it's a test range for bombs and weapons, then the messier the better. 



          As a youth, I would often note "Columbus didn't discover anything," and I would say,” the Indians were already here." People responded with, “ you know the first civilized people." The stupid made me woozy and this donut shop punditry is turning out to be far more dangerous than supposed.
          There haven’t been many people as deeply and severely critical of white people as me in many of my past essays, and conversations with people about it. Therefore, I am going to tackle the white supremacy problem and prepare for disagreements from all sides. Conniving hucksters on both sides pushing their agenda.  
          Trust me; there are scarier aspects to this whole alt right problem that people don't even see yet. First of all, what has happened in 2017 is white MALE supremacy. I want to help us all understand how to read between the lines with these people who speak in riddles and dog whistles.
         "Are you a white supremacist?" is the question that popped up in the break room one day. In the mind of the White Nationalist he is thinking that he is a white MALE supremacist which is different, so he says no. This is one way they avoid answering direct questions and this is how they lie to your face. 
                      Who are these white people, and how do you talk to them and refute their walls of fallacious arguments? Social media connects us, but living in this trumptown I think informal right wing militias are forming and are creating lists of enemies from online sources and lists of allies within the police and military from confidential sources.This is 35 years in the making even 55 going back to JBS. 
                        Fox News is the ultimate KKKool-aid and brainwashing tool for dumb white people. GOP politicians are probably the most despicable demographic going, but, on the other side, cultural appropriation is becoming a hot topic along with all the gender issues that people have gotten themselves mired in.
                      I am at my wit's end trying to understand what I can and can’t do with this extreme City Slicker Liberal agenda. 
                        I know the American Constitution has all the freedoms that I love, but I am also the last person who wants to insult someone about their culture.   
                         Do I now have to identify with “my” cultural group instead of considering myself a… global citizen?   I've been appropriating Yoga for over 45 years now. Do I follow “white” customs only now? Am I white enough though, to do an Irish jig? Am I white enough to drink tea at Tea Time without insulting someone?  .
                      Would my southern Mediterranean self be insulting the pasty white northerners from England and Ireland if I appropriate their customs?  Am I the right kind of white? Is there a wrong kind of white? What if my DNA profile shows I’m from Egypt or India? The point I am going to try to make is that some of us are going to use whatever we damn well please. "Life is tough, get a helmet" Dennis Leary.
                 
                    My favorite religious practice that I have found inspirational is a Pagan religion from Lithuania. It’s called Romuva today, but this ancient folk religion has always been there as folk tradition, and importantly, Lithuania was the last European country to be christianized. From their forums, I find out that they don’t want to know you, if you are not Lithuanian. I can't be authentic in their eyes, you know? Same thing with  Native Americans and Nordic Pagans. 
                      Natives and Nordics often believe they are reincarnated within their family clan. But if I say reincarnation doesn’t occur within a family or clan, people get miffed.  It couldn't possibly be true, I add. So it begs the question, what if I was Lithuanian in a previous life? Every body has a private club I suppose, I just haven't found mine yet.

                        THE VITAL ENERGY OF DEMOCRACY
         One prism of understanding the American Constitution is when you can comprehend why we don't put the Ten Commandments on court building walls, as fervent christians (read that white christians) want. As I said before, the founding revolutionaries excoriated and eviscerated religions creepy grasp on the VITAL ENERGY OF DEMOCRACY in the United States. 
             The Founding Documents is where the actual spirit of Liberty was born. The Founding Revolutionaries were most decidedly in favor of the separation of church and state and Liberty was the vanguard of the revolution, not the bible. Jefferson showed his scorn by way of making a Jesus Bible that deleted all the miracles. 



           The one constant that all the founding revolutionaries believed, was that religion is too often a corrupting influence on government, and they were determined to keep the clergy at arm’s length in this new country called The United States. Freedom of religion was to protect you from any coercive majority religion, and the forced conversions of islam and christianity was foremost in their thoughts with the Ottoman Empire and Inquisition in the news.
          It could be Quakers or Hindus 500 years from now, no religion, period, insisted the Founding Revolutionaries. This was on their mind as the documents were drawn up.
Careful Joe, could be a bomb in that collar


Capitalism has failed the world and depleted it's resource base.

Not looking for free, just fair.

          I don't want police cars to say In God we Trust. I don’t want them to say In Allah we Trust either, if you get what I’m saying. When our gracious islamic brothers and sisters want to kneel and pray 5 times a day at work or in the public commons, I have every right to object to this practice. I think banning prayer in the common spaces would be covered by the Ninth Amendment. Your constitutional rights end where mine begin. 
             I do not want to see "In Allah, We Trust" on the dollar bill. Hey, I can pray five times a day too, and I guarantee you, it is disconcerting to hear my freedom of religion because I pray to my Metal Gods at full volume.  
             The best way to keep Sharia Law out of this country is to keep Biblical Law out of our Laws and Statutes and Ordinances. Take “in God We Trust” off our money, for crying out loud. Stop forcing politicians to use the Bible for oath swearing, and we are not one nation under god.  We are many united as one.  Sharia Law will gain a foothold only if you knucklehead repuglicans insist on Biblical Law. Leave shit alone!




               My thing is that we aren't colors, genders, or nationalities. Instead, think of all of us as workers, citizens, voters,children and former cave dwellers. 
          Before this foray into the white people controversies, I want it known I love everybody. Well, not really. There's a meme that goes "somebody out there loves you. Not me, but somebody must."  
           Vanishing cultures around the world say, "Hey we had a fine system here before Columbus came along; didn't need y'all." Tens of millions of Native Americans died from smallpox and other diseases even before Virginia was invaded in 1609 by the British. They died from diseases left behind  Columbus and subsequent barbarian European hordes left behind in the 1500's. 
              Colonialism by white people and then Industrial Capitalism, disrupted virtually all the cultures of the world. On the other hand all these white nationalist websites insist white people invented everything. They destroyed old traditions  and sustainable resources is what I see. Here is one of the basic imbroglio's with white people issues. It's just so sad we have to compare races. People of color all pissed about what happened 100 years ago. Perpetuating what most of us have gotten past. 


        
            Europe was Pagan and White and Africa was Pagan and black. Mecca was a great Pagan meeting place for polytheists of all colors to commingle and there was no religion in that marketplace because Pagans didn't have wars over the gods and goddesses. Religious people say the Pagans were corrupt and lawless during that period in Mecca before Mohammad.  Read that as having fun.
             Back to this cultural appropriation nonsense. Culture is as important as climate as the two clash, collude and confront. I find out I cannot have Dreads, hunt seals, or be monks and do the 6,000 other things that non-whites do.  
         We cannot appropriate the customs of other cultures willy-nilly, say neo-liberal totalitarians, or we risk being publicly chastised and ostracized, it seems. The Liberal PC crowd is brainwashing its minions saying white people have to like only white people stuff, or be prepared to be corrected in direct defiance of the first amendment. Don't insult other cultures by copying their traditions. 
           Trying to run through the swamp here, just keep going. 

          I have been attracted to Northern European Pagan traditions, but have lived in the warmer part of the United States for half my life, in USDA zone nine. Therefore, my email is zone9pagan@yahoo.com.  (I don't check my email much, but I'll get back to you sooner or later.) 
          My thing is to bring these northern European traditions down south and translate them into zone 9 kind of stuff  (read that European). White traditions, I reckon, but I can't say white, you know what I mean? This is where the white nationalists say gotcha and point out a double standard and this puts independents in a weak debating situation. How about we assume we are all equal. Liberals aren't prepared for a level playing field, they are fighting for their constituency, the dependent and needy. 
             I am trying to speak for Independent people, the #independentmajorityparty . 
           Traditions that white (read that not christian) Pagans had before the brown christians and brown islamics invaded Europe is what I am discovering.  The indigenous Europeans got invaded the same way North America got invaded, but historians won't point that out to you. Pagans were slaughtered, their sacred places buried or destroyed by these invading brown hordes.
           The kind prophet from Essene was an anomaly at the time, preaching about peace and freedom and this is why Jesus became a viral celebrity after his death or disappearance.⇎  
        People were sick of all the coercion and bullshit rules they had to live by with Judaic tradition and the Pagan Roman traditions, and this more spiritual form of faith inspired by this kind Prophet, became popular. Patriarchal forms of Christianity kept wedging themselves into the circle of truths discussed by Jesus and eventually stole the vital of this energy esteemed by women and slaves who were the early christians. 
           The Gnostics believed in only Jesus and they felt that the old testament god was an imposter. It was the Gnostics versus the Patriarchal Paulines, but the Gnostics got snitched out by the Paulines and the Gnostics were the ones thrown to the Lions. Christians killing their own.

            Here is where it gets dicey for me. I would like to ask, what in the heck IS white culture? We know we can’t say it. Can’t have a White television channel, that's ra’ist, right?  So I want to say I am extolling the best of what white culture could possibly be, but that’s racist once again. What is white culture anyhow?
           Therefore, it seems that we can no longer even talk about white culture because the discussion of it is racist. This is what the regular working folks are puzzled and pissed about. Everybody else exulting and exalting their particular cultures while white people have to shut the hell up because white culture represses all culture.
             Conservatives think black lives matter has charged the whole atmosphere with racial division, when it is the system that is sad and sick with the gangrenous pus of discrimination and division.  
          Academia’s politically correct city slicker liberal says, if we do things from other cultures, we are stealing from them with this newly concocted horror, “Cultural Appropriation.” However, they never explain what white culture is. The Culture Police need to tell me the right way to do things, so you know, email me, you over credentialed eggheads.↭
           From bullfighting in Spain, to Greek pottery, to Laplanders and their Reindeer, these are only a couple of the corners of European culture. But wait, my ancestors were from the Azores, there is a whole 'nother corner. Recent discoveries of pre-Portugeese artifacts has me asking who had these boats to travel that far. The Phoenicians, the Polynesians? Mali in Africa reportedly had an 800 ship Navy that sailed far and wide. 
           Don’t know when they got there, but that is 900 miles out into the ocean, away from Europe. As part of Portugal, it's European, I reckon. 
            My kin have been fishing and farming in the Azores for untold generations, and I am going to guess my poor ass peasant ancestors did not profit from the Portuguese Slave trade. Going back even further, it turns out that Jewish people civilized Portugal about 1500 years ago and gave them a written language, and this was part of the evolution of Portuguese culture. This begs the question, are Jewish customs okay for me to use? Can I dress my child up as a Talmud Scholar on Halloween? Would Jewish people be offended? 

           Portugal, the only country in both the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea, has seen many migrations of Greek and Egyptian sailors the last 3000 years when it was known as Iberia.  Iberians are supposedly from India and genetic testing is confirming these suspicions. Portugal is actually closer to Mali in Africa than Norway in Europe. The Azores is closer to New Jersey than Greece.⇟
                I am presumably white, yet the first Mexican to play American Major League Baseball, shared my last name, Mel Almada. Mexicans are brown right, derived from Spain? Spain is closer to Switzerland than The Azores. Therefore people from Spain cannot appropriate culture from Switzerland but I can, because Portuguese people are allegedly white and Spaniards are brown? What? They're not Hispanic? I'm getting confused. 
           Hispanic people can celebrate Cinco de Mayo with it's cultural link to Mexico, but French and Portuguese people cannot since that is cultural appropriation? We need some explanations here. I see this shit on Facebook, everybody yelling at each other and getting nowhere.
           But that's what Liberals do. It can be called enlightened despotism, doing things for your own good. This is why Democrats absorb every good radical impetus into it's managed maw. Calm down radicals, we got this, say the Democrats. They have been feckless ineffectual do nothings who can't stand up to Neo-con bullying. Two decades of clotted nothingness. This is why it has to be third party or bust. ⥁

           South of the Azores are the Madeira Islands that are primarily composed of black people. Further south are the Canary Islands whose people were slaughtered into extinction by the Spanish who were freaked out by the very strange people they encountered there and they felt compelled to kill them all.  WTF! Canary Island customs and language was never preserved because of the ferocity of the Spaniards attack. 
                 Spaniards were even more freaked out that the Canary Islanders were Brown people and not Black people. How could that be? It’s been speculated that the Catalans and Basques and other genetically isolated populations were scattered cultural remnants of Atlantis and were allegedly related to the mysterious Canary Islanders. http://www.ancient-atlantis.com/guanche/
              What can I dress my child up as for Halloween you ask yourself, with all this noise about cultural appropriation?  First, it seems people speaking for American Native Indians are the very most offended by cultural appropriation on  Halloween. So we are warned Indian Princess is now out as a costume for Halloween unless you are 1/16th Native American. Or is it 1/8th? So many rules.



           Even if the people who cluster-fucked Custer are heroes of mine, I cannot honor their customs? Or do whatever I want with them. Am I allowed to use dream catchers or play drums like Native Americans with their boom boom boom dynamics?  
            I can’t call myself Two Crows because I don’t have the genetic heritage? I fully understand names of great respect are given to people who deserve it, and White Eagle is one. When I used to live 15 miles from the O'odham People, I named my roommate Eagle that Walks with his 30/20 vision and I was Four Eyes. I feel for them with the proposed border wall that would block access to family in Mexico. 
            One of the funniest notions from the politically correct cultural appropriation police, is that even Yoga is now cultural appropriation! That's the one that made me realize that they are full of shit and my eyes were finally fully opened to the Liberal Brainwashing. The traditional stance of Liberals is managed Liberty. They rule us magnanimously “for our own good.” 
             They will save the environment for the good of the planet, but what they are actually doing is creating six figure jobs for them and all their friends.  You send money to preserve habitat and more than half of it goes to an elite white lollygagger and their do-gooder foundation.  Liberals want to create a carbon tax and a sprawling world bureaucracy so their compatriots all have six-figure jobs and their kids will have six figure jobs as Liberals institutions grow like coral colonies. 
           The problem is that we have reached the end of the line with managed liberty, enlightened despotism, and cronyism. We actually want anarchy, which is the absence of coercion.
             But yoga is cultural appropriation?  I don’t know what my Azorean ancestors did to stretch in the morning, but maybe the exercises were very much like Qi Gong or Yoga in their movements. Unfortunately, I will never know what exercises I am allowed to do because all the records of Azorean exercise have disappeared.  No exercise tradition handed down. I am clearly not Chinese so my cheesy reinterpretations of Qi Gong mixed with Yoga are clearly insulting on so many levels. I add light weights and call it Yogaerobics. Get a helmet 
              Meanwhile, what about that Halloween costume? Maybe my child can dress up as a Fish Monger or a Fish Mongers Wife since my children are Portuguese and French. They can rinse some Bacalhau (dried salted Cod), and carry it around since it’s said Portuguese people are able to tolerate the smell of rotting fish better than any other culture. "And what are you little boy?" 
               
             Then across the planet, what happens if some Saudi Arabian mother tells her child at Halloween time that he is not allowed to be a fishmonger since that would be cultural appropriation from white people. 
                In India, there a child pleading to his parents. “It is NOT cultural appropriation for me to dress in the style of the ‘Rockabilly culture’. Mother… I INSIST …it is my choice. Please listen to this and tell me you don’t feel the energy. I love Rockabilly!"

IT’S ALL RIDICULOUS AND WE KNOW IT.

              I have lived in the south now for 33 of my 63 years but my heart belongs to New England. With our neighbor New York, we can secede from this train wreck of moral hypocrisy and Fox News brainwashing, and survive with our trading partners Pacifica
(California/Oregon/Washington/Vancouver). Quebec Canada and the second Republic of Vermont would be two other countries. 
                 I am imagining The Republic of New America with Pacifica, New England, Quebec, and Vermont. Innovations, creativity, ingenuity, live free or die. That's right, secession. But secession created the bloodbath called the Civil War and surely the aforementioned surveillance apparatus would discover the plot. 


         The word is that Newt Gingrich is going to have a new Un-American Activities Committee and there will be money for his goons to investigate private citizens, but hypocritically, none for the Meals on Wheels program.  
        The NSA can screen every email that discusses “secession” and you will find yourself under investigation. The white van with the tinted windows down the street listening to what you are talking about. But right wing deplorables go yeehaw whenever someone talks about Texas secession, and it would seem to me that we could talk about an anarchic secession all we want with our First Amendment protections.
           Vermont (The Republic of Vermont 1777-1791) has an active secessionist movement currently. In Canada, the very large province of Quebec has voted on separating from Canada but so far they are remaining as part of Canada.  
                Lord knows the current situation in the United States is dire. The countries largest demographic, dumb white people, have opened the floodgates to all kinds of kooks and deplorables and your well educated white nationalists.  After beating back white male authoritarianism for 50 years, it has come alive again like a fucking alien popping out of our chest or something, with the electoral victory of Stupid Bigly. 
                          
                2008 was one of Americas most difficult years mired in the abyss of the two ill-conceived, unconstitutional wars and billion dollar businesses failing while the housing market crashed.  Even after 13 years, some members of the GOP say we should still be in Iraq.
             Don’t even mention reducing the military to anybody. Our foreign policy is about the 1,000-year-old Holy War between Islam and Christianity, and I am stunned people are oblivious to that fact.  A new counter-Revolution needs to happen against this religious right wing kookism. This unconstitutional intrusion of being under god and in god we Trust, needs to be dealt with.
           We are going to have a revolution in music to get the white people back on track. Rock and Roll was created by the fusion of black boogie-woogie and white hillbilly music and created the greatest art form the world has ever known. That’s right Rockabilly fathered rock and roll and they boogied all night long.
                       The mission is to go into the heart of rural culture and de-program these bewildered hillbillies and flummoxed flatlanders that voted for Stupid Bigly using an Americana based band. I’m starting a Hillbilly band for the purpose of dancing but also commonality and consensus. "I knew if I had the chance that I could make those people dance and maybe they'd be happy for a while"


         White liberals overcompensating with their white guilt will tell you black people invented rock and roll. It’s even racist to suggest otherwise. Rock and roll was invented when all the sub-genres of music came together, but particularly boogie woogie and hillbilly music. Some people say Rocket 88 by Ike Turner is considered the very first rock and roll song in 1952. Some say rock around the clock among others. However, I suggest the Delmore Brothers song "Hillbilly Boogie” in 1946.  This is when hillbilly and boogie-woogie were fused together and the song was about playing the boogie-woogie on the guitar instead of the piano. That would make rock and roll 70 years old. 
           Bluegrass, Blues, Western Swing, Boogie Woogie and Hillbilly music were streams that fed the river that became known as Rock and Roll "If you don't want my Peaches, Honey, don’t shake my tree".

          All the streams for social justice and workers rights are currently flowing into one river. Anti-fascist movements are over 100 years old and people need to know that with all the GOP fear mongering. One of the first labor strikes was in 1834 by children demanding an 11-hour limit to the workday. Workers fought and died to work a 40-hour week because nobody should be slaves. Newt Gingrich would have poor children work in their schools as janitors while the rich kids go to Sea Camp. 
             
               The 2 billion working poor in the world are suffering so the Donald tRumps of the world can have gold toilets. We have had about enough of this shit and the long-awaited worldwide worker's revolution is about to begin. The only problem is white workers have been voting against themselves during this Reagan Era of Greed because white male supremacy operatives have wormed their way into our political, law enforcing, and educational systems with right wing brainwashing. This is why an outreach is needed and why I am starting a Hillbilly band. Why we all need to reach into their fox ‘hole den and pull them out into the sunlight.
                 Other white people have maliciously maligned hillbillies and many of these mountain people were actually industrious and fun-loving redneck survivalists.  Americana, you know, Rt 66 and everything uniquely American such as blues and rockabilly. So today, because of all the fights for equality in the last 50 years, we are theoretically all on an equal footing. Unfortunately, cops are still racist, and the whole system is still toxic. It's sad to realize this, but the worst problem is white intolerance of Mexicans, witches, handicapped people, and just about every demographic going. I always thought they were the snowflakes since nearly everything makes them uncomfortable.



            One strategy by White Nationalists since 1960 was to make sure felons became unable to vote, and there are now 3 million black felons finding it difficult to get work and unable to vote. This is one of the reasons why Driving while Black can be a fatal enterprise. Then the honkies say welfare is what broke up black families. 
                  Many of us have been shocked that so much racism still exists. My old relatives are dead, my Unitarian brothers and sisters embrace all, even crazy me. My children are post-everything and I have learned a lot from them. My 20 customers are all jovial, nature loving people and we never discuss politics. so I am surrounded by kind loving people and don't hear bigotry anymore because I am about sick of nasty white people. 
           I saw in my grandmother a person who was bigoted against blacks then finally realized, "every group of people has its good and bad."  She even had a lawn jockey once upon a time. It seems that nearly everyone saw the absurdity of being racist in my lifetime and we were living liberty and justice for all from here on out. I don’t hear any racism anymore, honestly. I did hear the “he’s the wrong color” meaning white discrimination at Wal Mart the other day. I let those kind odd comments hang in the air like the rotten fruit they are.
               White enclaves known as echo chambers continue to delude the trump humping bumpkins, the cock holsters of gangrenous greed and authoritarian excess.


                Thomas Jefferson is one of my gods.  Thank God, Biblical Law is not constitutional, or we would not have any freedoms at all. This is what the warriors for Christ do not seem to understand. Biblical Law and Sharia Law are kissing cousins and they would be the death of me, for heresy and blasphemy.  Christians"patriots" will be thanking God for atheists when Sharia Law finds they hit a stone wall anywhere they try to establish Sharia Law in the United States. 
                    Thanks to the Founding Revolutionaries, we are given a shield to protect us from coercive religious authority, because otherwise, heretics would be in prison and gay witches would be dragged to the center of town and burned for entertainment. That really hurts you know, to be burned alive. Or scraped to death with clamshells like Pagan scholar Hypatia was by a christian mob.
             The influence of Paganism is everywhere, and yet this word stirs up the ancient hatred, a brainwashing and induced delirium that has been going on for many hundreds of years, by the most fraudulent, illegitimate authority in history.  I keep wondering when the right wing kooks are going to discover the millions of Pagans and Pagan tolerant and Pagan curious people there are in our country.  You know booga booga, demons and all that shit.
             The founding revolutionaries subverted religions insidious grip on power. Christians would still be burning the Witches, I am sure. On the internet, I find the witch demographic as the friendliest by far, and the most gracious and wise group of people that I have ever encountered.  
             You watch by the end of 2017 there will be a major government official who will antagonize this freedom loving demographic. Trumpoons will add Pagans to their Gay, Islamic, and Mexican list of people to harass and we will then realize we haven’t advanced much since the Salem Witch Trials in 1692 or the Zoot Suit riots of 1943.
            There was friendliness and trade between the natives and the roughneck pioneers at first.  The founding revolutionaries were familiar with native freedoms. From their pulpits of hate, the ‘elitist clergy’ actively promoted the slaughter of the Red Man to all would listen. The slick talking, rubber jawed, city slicker preachers had a convenient target for focusing the rage of the  Pioneer peasants in the New World. The Native Americans were seen as far too pagan to be managed and assimilated and being extremely earth-centered, they could never really be Christians. 
         Washington Jefferson Adams Madison and their ilque were the actual greatest generation. The complacency and blind obedience of the misnamed greatest generation gave the world 20,000 nuclear weapons. It gave us a surveillance nation contrary to the bill of rights. Normandy survivors worked in weapons plants that have filled the world with weapons and gave them a great retirement. It's ironic they gave everything they could to fight fascism during WW2 but allow it today with the neo-con coup of our government leading the way.
         Subservience and fealty to corporate greed have destroyed unions but greatly benefited stockholders. Meanwhile, our young people (parent of 5 here) can far better articulate why racism is wrong and why sexism is incomprehensible. Millenials will not allow "war without end" that Boomers have allowed. They mistrust the pedophiles (catholics) and demagogues (baptists) that claim to be christians. They have far more expansive vocabularies than high school graduates of 1940 that memorized Shakespeare but accepted "colored bathrooms". 


            There is no comparison in my mind between these nasty retirees I meet who have replaced "feelings" with fear and submission to authority.  Men are taught to crush their feelings and rumble inside with restrained emotion. When I was 20, I remember being oddly proud that I hadn't cried since I was ten years old. 
            There has never been a generation that has allowed so much bad policy to prevail or accumulated so much wealth. Myopic vision of short-sighted opportunists has left us with radioactive waste, plastic filled oceans and mercury-tainted fish leading us to the brink of environmental collapse.  Sorry bro, but I've taken it upon myself to defend Millennials when I see them maligned at the expense of the close minded dupes, lackeys and sell outs of the older generations.

                                      DOG WHISTLES      
    Hillbilly is a word for white people.  Metal is another word for white people.  Didn’t know that, did you?  Boogie Woogie still stirs my soul, and Hillbilly and Metal music know how to build up momentum.  I like what I like when I like it and it does not mean I am a racist if I like white music or make a white playlist.   I'm still trying to figure out what the hell is white culture anyways. 
           Then sure, Barack Obama. The problem there,  is that his white half was sensationalized as communist, and then ignored.  During my adult life, white people are often on the ropes about how they are not racists and white men are constantly accused of being sexist along with being racist.  All white men are maligned because of the wealthy whites who have blacklisted many demographics from their lives unless you're a maid or janitor. 
             Liberal city slicker whites fall over themselves overcompensating on the equality issue, gushing over non-white everything. What is white culture anyways? I mean really. European? Japanese people are pretty white aren't they, but crazy white people put them in camps during WW2 and the media convnced regular folks that he Japanese couldn't be trusted. The fight for freedom, remember?
        Not many people have been as critical of the whites as I have and WASPy greed masters have been my primary target for many years. Their Capitalism is Americas worst nightmare and I've always called it Predatory Capitalism. I think I am Iberian and Egyptian and am more brown than white but the truth is that I don't give a care like most people.  
                  I want to delve into white issues because I see some perspectives that can get us to a higher level, but it is nearly impossible to talk about white people issues without somebody blowing a gasket. I've heard mostly negative things about white people and it does get tiring. I wish people could accept each other.  Tolerance is not enough. One world one people.  Unity without hierarchy. Workers, citizens, and voters “I don’t want to spend my life being a color.” Michael Jackson.



             Now, in the 21st century, our modern sensibilities are not able to comprehend how women were not allowed to vote until 1920. People are finally able to embrace women equally as men, as we should embrace the Goddess as well as the God/ Lately, however, I have been visiting these alt right websites and they are as angry as ever and they have a desire to marginalize women.
              In 1789, just before the bill of rights had been formally ratified, southern racists were having a tantrum and would not sign on as part of the 'United States' unless they could keep their slaves. Northerners thought this unfair since they had to pay their employees.
                  During the Civil War, the 1% of the southern population that owned slaves, convinced the poor whites to fight for them and I can't help but think of this lackey attitude when I see some 'rebel's' flag fluttering behind them as they drive by. Brainwashed bigoted chumps. No offense. 
             In 1789, northern economies were primarily community-based and agrarian. You could buy, sell, repair and trade nearly everything that you needed to run the family farms that were 80% of the population. The Industrial North had yet to arrive. 
             Meanwhile, before the civil war, Unitarian ministers were prominent in the safe house underground railway movement. Onwards to 1960 when only 10% of the black population in Mississippi was registered to vote, prompting the need for civil rights legislation in a country founded on freedom. 
              In 2008, a liberal hating lunatic burst into a Unitarian Universalist church with a gun killing two and injuring seven. The shooter, Adkisson, stated that he had targeted the church because of its "liberal teachings and his belief that all liberals should be killed because they were ruining the country." 
              On the contrary, racism has hurt this country far too often in our history, and black lives matter is our great teaching moment as we attempt to drag the fungus of hatred out into the sun to dry it up. Racists are traitors to Liberty. Freedom and Compassion got married and their first child was named Liberty. 
              In 1895, children were working in factories and Protestant CEO's took great delight in hiring the Catholic wave of immigrants from 1875 to 1895, and recreated European feudalism in the cities of America. 
      Two kinds of white people? Privileged whites and working whites. The ruling class and the working class. I have Facebook friends who are quite antagonistic to whites and I want to say, hey don’t raise your babies to be racist. They learn that shit, it’s not in the genes. 
          Greedy oppressors and yeah,  we know all that. I saw in my youth how white people participated in the marginalization of handicapped people, and keeping blacks out and making the Browns pick fruit with no opportunities to further themselves. The Yellow Peril is another embarrassing chapter of white privilege in a previous area. With Enlightenment at hand, we have become post-race and post-gender and participation in prejudice is a thing of the past. I had thought.
            Most people don't want to spend their life being a color. As a teen, there was a disturbing amount of bigotry with my Uncle Joe as the most prominent with his hate.  Then it got to be the 70's and while most went on a success track, I rejected the white collar world and the college edumacated idiots, as all of us working people of all colors called them.
             I was content to work a second shift janitorial job because the steady paycheck gave me enough money to do what I really wanted to do. At work, my friend Dewitt would say 'you got?' or 'I got' and we'd take a nice long break when the work was nearly done. One great time was when we said forget the work and we all watched the entire Young / Ali fight with much discussion when it was done. Young won, but judges felt Ali needed to be beaten decisively to have the crown taken from him.
                In the 80's bigotry was viewed as favorably as a canker sore or really bad breath and in the working world the need to survive was a common struggle with all colors and all genders and we all helped each other best we could.  Today I see black racists as bad as my Uncle Joe
             They go to bourgeois(white) locales and the Ivegotmine upper middle whites are as uncomfortable with a black dude walking around with a kill all the cops and wonder why people don't talk to them. Because white people suck his facebook friends yell in caps. Try to conceptualize that they are also standoffish with me and my hillbilly truck, my nasty face hair, and Union cap which confounds the confederate flag waving racists that remain. The North won bitches, we are the UNITED States.  
          What I'm trying to say is don't be my Uncle Joe and perpetuate the cycle of atrocity and reprisal whatever your race is. I get into some interesting conversations with my Union cap. The South will rise again they say and I say 'and do what exactly, I ask?' #unitywithouthierarchy

      Was it my ancestral whites fishing and farming on the Azore Islands during the American Civil War that were the slave masters? You check on this, but the sources of prejudice from white people were the White Anglo-Saxon Protestants. WASPS. As the much discriminated Italians found out, participate in the system and you will no longer be targeted. Political correctness is not giving the good white people a fair shot. It's a new source of hate that will take decades to eradicate.
                              DONUT  SHOP PUNDITS 
            They needed a smooth talking anti worker, anti- environmentalist who makes white people feel good. Someone the 'white guy with a clipboard' demographic can embrace. Someone the old white people in the Donut Shop can quote. The three legs of the stool of power ---The Donut Shop Pundits/the white person with a clipboard/and alcoholic white trailer trash will elect the next President. McCain, Romney, Trump, and Newt  cannot relate to real Americans.   The real Americans I have worked with all my life. 
           The black and brown donald trumps have raised their children to hate 'the man' and 'whitey' when a large percentage of white people are like, what the hell? Race can't be an issue anymore, anywhere, and all racism needs to be addressed. The good white people are emerging after 35 years of sleepwalking through this military corporate and right wing religious coup of America. Time for all of us to unite as workers/voters/and citizens. out of many, ONE. "Is anybody in there? Nod if you can hear me" 
                Stupid Bigly is walking into a fascist police state 35 years in the making.  El-Rushbo has paved the way with Alex Jones and others right behind him. Roger Ailes has been our Joseph Goebbels but the difference is this.  25 years of brainwashing is already in place by Ailes alone.  Ailes was his program director and, Limpbaugh endlessly repeated phrases such as 'the rich are the job creators', which is a lie that has become truth to his truth-impaired fans,  believable because of the relentlessness of the repetition. 
             Then at Fox News Roger Ailes’ motto was to brainwash the nation with a white male supremacy agenda without them knowing it.  'The lies became truth' and Fox News Director Ailes created an army of Herman Goring’s wannabes, sitting in their living room with their gun in their lap, waiting for the liberal bloodbath they are eager to participate in. 
                    With an enemy of public education, Devos in the cabinet, Blackwater is now in the inner circle of the White House.  Why would this be, other than anticipating the rise of an elitist Himmler style attack force?   A mercenary army that is already embedded in police departments and the military that is KKK inclined and are the 3% Warriors for Christ at the least. Fence keepers and Soldiers of Odin and 984 hate groups.
              This is what I mean when I say most people have no idea the danger that white nationalists pose. Importantly it’s a white Male supremacy agenda and not a master race thing that includes women. "You are going to bear a child for Hitler and the master race. Instead of a regional conflict, we are looking at a worldwide explosion of war as Putin and Trump divide up the world as slow moving, long term planning China is completely taken by surprise and marginalized.  
            They will do it to "contain China". Therefore, you wake up one day and you can’t get online with your laptop or phone. You turn on the TV and chief executive Stupid Bigly is on every channel explaining the crisis. "China did a very very dumb thing by bombing our refineries with neutron bombs.”  It actuality, Oil and gas companies had sabotaged loosely capped wells and weak pipelines creating environmental havoc but blamed it all on China. 
            The article presented here exhibits some amazing sociological similarities but we need to be prepared for the unexpected advancement of the right wing coup that has been in place the last 35 years. Personally, I think the golden age of humor #theorangeageofhumor has arrived as I call it on Facebook.  
             Grassroots solidarity will finally blossom with the inspiration of Independent Bernie Sanders and it will be either The Final Slaughter or the worldwide workers union depending on how the battles go.  We see the potential for colossal incompetence with Steve Bannon and others in the White House. The nation is certain to be in an uproar if things go really badly. It’s a big ship to turn around but I see a Nixon-Agnew type of exit for our chief executive and the vice chief executive.

                        WHO ARE THE WHITE PEOPLE?
I research so you don’t have to be my motto. The search starts with who are the white people?  At first,  I follered the Caucasian People to the Caucasus Mountains they are supposedly derived from. It’s out near Armenia or something. Well, they migrated to Romania and then eventually over the entirety of Europe. Then I found out another branch of the Caucasian People went to India for a couple thousand years and then they came back and took a more Northerly Route than the first Caucasians. This was as the last ice age ebbed and unconventional wisdom has Europe settled much earlier than Conventional Wisdom states. 
                     Now I read people from India are closer to Caucasoid than any other genera.  Lithuania to India saw many white people migrating back and forth and there is a secret there I am trying to uncover. 25,000-year-old stone houses scattered across Europe and vivid artistically rendered cave paintings. H.G. Wells discussing the cave painters or Reindeer Men as he called them.
              “They had vivid perceptions, an acute sense of animal form; they had the real artist’s impulse to render. These races of Reindeer Men were in undisturbed possession of Western Europe for a period of at least ten times as long as their interval between ourselves and the beginning of the Christian Era, AND THROUGH ALL THAT IMMENSE TIME THEY WERE FREE TO DEVELOP AND VARY THEIR LIFE TO IT’S UTMOST POSSIBILITIES.”  
          But we are taught that the first civilized people were the brown people from the desert filled with crazy religions, remember? Mesopatamia and the cradle of civilization was drilled into our heads in school. The indigenous White People were the Reindeer People. Maybe the original Denisovans, or the Neanderthal, but people seem confused when I tell them that it was the brown people and their Holy Rampage of Conquest that disrupted and destroyed the indigenous white people along the indigenous black people and their triple gods.

            Imagine it’s thousands of years ago and you are a teen with a sense of adventure living in Georgia, south of Russia. You and your posse go off in the spring intending to come back by winter.  You visit the ancient ruins of Atlantis at the south end of the Black Sea. As you approach northern Italy’s mountains you head back after being blocked by the Alps. Then you come across a remnant tribe of Grimaldi People.  The Grimaldi people had migrated from Africa and arrived in Europe 50,000 YA via the Straights of Gibraltar. Yes black people were among the first Europeans.
           The ancient cave painters had moved east and north, assimilated Neanderthal man, and then met the migrating Caucasians 10,000 years later as they migrated a little further north in Europe. 
              You spend a night as the guest of the Grimaldi Village and note the children riding the amazing posteriors of the First Homo Sapiens sapiens in Europe.    Then you and the boys stay and forget the way home. So now, ask yourself where did these two sets of people come from? It appears that the first religions and the first cave paintings in Africa occurred around 50 thousand years ago and a northerly migration was also occurring as the Ice Age ebbed away. 
                    In addition, there was an eastern African migration that the Proto- Nubian People had around 100,000 years ago. It is as if there was an evolution of spirit somehow around 120,000 years ago, as Homo sapiens became our final form, Homo sapiens sapiens. H. sapiens sapiens around the world had evolved and ancient prototypes became extinct
             This is where my freedom of religion comes in. I take different threads of very ancient history and try to weave a sensible carpet that suits our purpose. In my religion (from a very ancient secret source), the Goddess Venus arrives on earth on a clamshell, I would guess around 120,000 years ago.  The water levels of the Red Sea were at their lowest point when she arrived as a previous Ice Age was in place. 
         The red haired whitey white goddess was Venus the soul seeder. She “came from a distant star” and had 13 children with the blackest black man of the largest tribe who settled the Black Sea area after an African migration. The area near the Red Sea, now covered in water, was a Garden of Eden in lusher times. Many fruit trees originated from this area and was a temperate zone during previous ice ages.
                74,000 years ago, there was a monstrous volcanic explosion and 80% of the humans and 50% of the animal species died and/or went extinct.  The Goddesses (ladies of the afterlife) were amazed at the power of the earth.  The Humans rebounded and Atlanis came into being about 60,000 years ago. Atlantis was the hub of all migration routes and now lies 70 feet below the surface of the Black Sea. All traces buried in the sand but we do know the mix of black and white created brown.    
                   The humans found it natural to co-operate and share the bounty of fruits and vegetables. Then they traded salt and gemstones, eventually discovering gold and silver. Figs, Jerky, and Palm nuts too. People were not inclined to kill each other but to have a nice day and a quiet night.  
                     So where did white people come from? How about the so-called Yellow People?  Supposedly derived from Denisovans (a separate human species) from Siberia.  Then you realize that for all the folderol about race and wars, we all come from a similar place not really all that long ago geologically speaking. 
                 Evolution is real and not a theory. Where did the Chihuahua come from you ask? That’s right, in less than 20,000 years the wolf became the Chihuahua because of evolution. 
               Look at pandas; they all rather look the same. Squirrels Camels  Elephants are indistinct from each other. Whereas cats have genetic variety, and bovines evolved into many different looking ones some creatures never change or evolve. Then look at the people in line at 7-11. The pasty white rich people, the drunken painters, the black roofers, Mexican landscapers, nurses and secretaries of every color are in line   
             One question I had was, are there two distinct two white races? They are elite whites and worker whites, but are they the ssame color? If you look  at who owned the factories where children worked or who owned the plantations or who dumped toxins into watersheds or who stands to make billions off the Keystone Pipeline or who owns the City of London, it has always been the WASP White Anglo-Saxon Protestant. 
          They give all Europeans a bad reputation with their cold, bleached egomania. My people from the Azores fished and farmed for centuries before coming to America as did many other Europeans running from the religious kooks.  They were simple forest folk that became Hillbillies when they came to America. The black/white schism had me wondering what could be a way to unify all people.
             In Africa, going back to a tribe 70,000 years ago, to the Reindeer People who were the indigenous Europeans 15 to 40 thousand years ago, these Pagans lived with their triple gods and goddesses and people of Europe and Africa had very similar lifestyles for thousands of years.  Tens of thousands of years. As I explained, the Grimaldi People were the first black people to inhabit Europe and those Pygmies assimilated with the people they met as they drifted eastward and it's why Mediterranean whites are shorther than northern whites.
                What happened was the so-called civilized people of the Middle Eastern area created capitalism with their overproduction of wheat and began invading the lands of the indigenous Europeans and indigenous Africans. These brown people invaded the villages of black and white tribes as they moved northwards and southwards. Thousands of years later, Islam and Christianity (those crazy desert people) usurped peaceful pagans with violent, forced conversion and the millions of slaughtered pagans. Black and white alike. Unity without hierarchy----heed the call.
                 Compare the 13 goals for a witch, to let's say, the 10 commandments where the whiny god of Canaan exhibits his jealousy of other gods and is quite prepared to torture you with fire for eternity if you get on his bad side. Then there is islam where a husband is allowed to beat or kill his female property. Can you see now why both of these bloodthirsty religions have demonized Paganism and Witchcraft over these many years?
                They needed a scapegoat. There are no demons in the craft as far as I can tell and I’ve been studying and practicing Paganism for years.  Racism is the new kid on the block compared to Pagan Hatred. The Holy Rampage of Conquest by Islam and Christianity over the African people and the indigenous European tribes is a slaughter your ancestors want you to address. 
                   The Brown invaders became the white invaders as they moved north. When these ruling whites got to America, the Natives were considered Pagans---plain and simple, and the upper class was delighted as Baptist Preachers promoted genocide. 
             A book from 1928 called Lady Chatterley’s Lover, describes post-WW1 England. The ruling class has power because they are the most qualified to lead, they told themselves. He who has the gold makes the rules is the actual golden rule. In the book, the coal miners in the town drag their feet home every day after 12 hours of slavery in unearthly, horrible conditions. The local oligarch, the owner of the mine, looks on their parade of gloom with pity, and repeats that he has “been given the burden of keeping the rabble in line.” 
        Maybe he could give them a free ham for chritsmas and the pitiful masses would be thankful, not realizing the actual criminal class that the Oligarchy is. They are mobsters and criminals as regards to the theft of a livable income when they keep people in chronic poverty. Keeping entire towns impoverished, what kind of asshole does this? Look at these extreme capitalists; they have many WASPS among their ranks. These are the white people the people of color should be upset with.
                The people of the single god theory and their political machinations began burning and banning the meek. Hell, they even "burned their own daughters if they playeth the whore" as it says in their book. A schism developed and this new book called the New Testament and its adherents, Christians,  tapped into the exoskeleton of the dying Roman world and thus became the "Holy" Roman Empire.  
           They banned the meek in 395 AD and began a thousand year campaign to eradicate the meek and their thousands of gods and goddesses, finally conquering the last remaining Pagans in Europe in 1384 when a 15-year-old prince of Lithuania married the 12-year-old christian princess of Poland. 
              They named buildings, rivers, and towns after their saints and they stuck the heads of dead meek people on poles to convince other meek people to give up their kind and fun loving cultures. 
             Meanwhile, a little south of the holy empire, the last prophet and the people of the scimitar began THEIR holy rampage of conquest. They considered themselves great warriors but they married little girls and beheaded many of the meek and we say "yeah right dude, real manly". The ancient stories of the meek were burned at the library of Alexandria so all traces of them would disappear. 
           The cross and scimitar invaded the indigenous cultures of the meek of Africa and Europe and took their gold and forced conversion became the order of the day. Their great holy leaders surveyed the world years later, and found that the meek had finally been subdued, the blood and money cults of Abraham were victorious and the meek were subsumed. 
           Today the meek have begun to make their voices heard. "There is no god" and "there are many gods and goddesses" the Pagans and Atheists declare. These are the new people of the word. Their great goddess holds the lamp of liberty aloft to light the way and the great journey of the meek has begun, guided by the words of the first true covenant of the people called the mutrfukon United States Constitution, bitches. Every day gets a little brighter as the dawn of civilization approaches and the meek (today they are known as Pagans and Atheists) cautiously are coming out of hiding to reclaim the cultures of the world
                The white WASP elite needs to feel the sting of the workers discontent from the inevitable worker's revolution.  Like in the south during the Civil War, how did less than 2% of the population convince the other 98% that secession and war was necessary?  600,000 deaths for bullshit. Cold-hearted elite, the slave owners, sent the working white people to their gruesome deaths. 
                 Maligned no longer, the meek are poised to rule the earth. Ecosystem Stewardship is the word to replace resource gobbling for gold. When the dumb white demographic catches on, we will have another Progressive Revolution.
                                 INTRACTABLE DILEMMA
          Unitarian Universalists have no exclusionary ethos like the way hyper-patriarchal Christianity and Islam does. Unitarian Universalists are the kindest people you will ever want to meet. We had a lifelong Muslim visit our UU church and talk with us. Everybody in the congregation is fine with Islamic people worshipping down the street. UU's want to get to know you, not your religious beliefs. Bring something to the table, some conversation, some volunteer work, that is what the UU’s are about and what freedom of religion is all about.
              Well, we were not impressed with our Muslim visitor as our liberal Reverend asked questions and we listened as the Muslim preacher articulated his Stone Age opinion of women’s equality. The enlightened, liberal Muslim opinion about gay people is that it is up to Allah to judge you. “We cannot judge you. “ Then Allah burns gay people in Hell of course. It is a religion of peace but we see nightmarish strains of embedded violence. 

            Catholics and Protestants have been willing to fight for decades in bloody wars in the past, but the civil authority has constrained their violent excess in the last century. A Secular framework in the United States has penned in biblical law finally, and kept it from being implemented, except now in state legislatures the people drunk on needing power are promoting. We have to do the same with Islam. Ban them both, get it?  The 9th amendment is about precedent.
