Trump To The Friends And Family Of The El Paso, TX And Dayton, OH Mass Shooting Victims, “Mental Illness Killed Your Loved Ones!”

So, according to Donald Trump, white supremacy is a mental illness and to cure white supremacy mental illness, treat it like you would if whites only had affluenza,

1.af·flu·en·za
1.a psychological malaise supposedly affecting wealthy ‘white’ young people, symptoms of which include a lack of motivation, feelings of guilt, and a sense of isolation.

And so now we have white supremacyenza, a psychological malaise affecting racist whites, symptoms of which include posting white nationalist manifestos on Facebook, acquiring massive stock piles of assault rifles, hundreds of thousands of rounds of ammunition due to the belief that white people constitute a superior race and should therefore dominate society, typically to the exclusion or detriment of other racial and ethnic groups and therefore, all other groups should be targeted for annihilation and so get to shooting.

To cure this affliction, the subject should be given a few therapeutic sessions on a couch, some anti-white supremacy medications, a pat on the head and be released back into society, so suggests Donald Trump.

Trump focuses on combating mental illness over new gun-control measures

He outlined a number of possible steps, including so-called “red-flag laws,” that focus on better identifying mentally ill people who should not be allowed to purchase firearms.

“Mental illness and hatred pull the trigger. Not the gun,” said Trump, who did not take questions from reporters.

Inciting racists and fanning the flames of hatred have no impact on why white males have been going on mass shooting sprees or so Trump would have us believe. He is as usual assuming no responsibility for what he has encouraged with his racist rhetoric. To get re-elected, he has stated that members of hate groups were “good people,” even as their actions led to murder when a member of said group used his car to mow down protesters that resulted in one death in Charlottesville, VA. His racist rhetoric at his rallies has promoted discord among attendees resulting in numerous fights breaking out.

Meanwhile, violence across America escalates to the point whereas in Chicago, a hospital had to go on “on bypass” due to the fact that too many people had gotten shot and the hospital could not take in any more gun shot victims.

Chicago hospital stops accepting patients after trauma center is overwhelmed with shooting victims
Chicago’s Mount Sinai Hospital temporarily stopped accepting patients Sunday morning because they were at capacity following a series of shootings, a hospital official said.

The hospital went “on bypass” in the early morning, said Roberta Rakove, Senior VP for External Affairs.

Hospitals use the term “on bypass” when they stop accepting ambulance runs and those ambulances are diverted to other trauma centers. Mount Sinai Hospital is one of five trauma centers in Chicago.

So while folks were getting shot to death in El Paso, TX, and Dayton, OH, multiple people were getting shot in Chicago to the point whereas one hospital was so overwhelmed with trauma victims that it could accept no more. When are we going to understand that we have a serious problem in America? When will the endless rhetoric about mental illness committing mass murder cease and those like Trump and others who make up the GOP start calling it what it is? When is the lamestream media going to call itself out for helping to perpetuate this whacked shit by sensationalizing it? When are we going to realize that all of this so-called mass surveillance of us is being used for other purposes since it damn sure as hell is not being used to stop mass shootings? With cameras everywhere and with the NSA supposedly spying on our every keystroke, one would think that someone, somewhere would have knowledge about this shit before it takes place. Why is it that white nationalist manifestos posted on Facebook and other so-called social media sites are always found AFTER the shooter has killed his targets? Why are our tax dollars being wasted paying for the Department of Homeland Security, The National Security Agency, The Federal Bureau of Investigation and even the Pentagon since they are doing fuck all about stopping these killers that have posted their intent for ALL the world to see? Those government agencies are not dropping the ball on this shit, they are deliberately letting this shit happen. Why else is the Pentagon claiming that it has launched unmanned surveillance balloons only in an effort to locate drug pushers? Why not use that surveillance shit to monitor hate groups?

Pentagon launching drug surveillance balloons over Midwest

The Pentagon is testing the high-altitude, solar-powered balloons across six states, The Guardian reported on Friday.

The balloons were launched to provide “a persistent surveillance system” for narcotic trafficking and homeland security threats, according to a filing with the Federal Communications Commission.

So, while white nationalists are online posting white nationalist manifestos that reveal that they have amassed a shitload of weapons and are about to shoot up some folks, the massive surveillance system installed by the Pentagon is only aimed at locating “narcotic traffickers?” Seriously???!!! They had that shit up in the Midwest while dude was in the Midwest shooting up people in Dayton, OH and they didn’t see dude with a gun since their spy shit can carry sensors and communication gear capable of detecting every vehicle in motion in a 25-mile range beneath the balloon, but cannot detect a guy carrying a high-powered assault weapon? I demand my goddamn tax money back that paid for that shit!

Meanwhile a cousin of two victims who were shot dead in Dayton, OH has a message for Donald “mental illness killed your cousins” Trump!

Unfortunately, his message falls on deaf ears and is only good for soundbites. And soon, if the stock market continues to free fall thanks to Chinese tariffs, even this will no longer be news.

A person who wishes to remain anonymous asked me to post a poem that I wrote and though I had posted that poem for other reasons, they thought that it was fitting for what is going down because people are now extra fearful over going about their daily lives what with hate being spewed, left and right from the halls of congress and especially from the WhiteRight House. I don’t think any poem is going to help matters in this country as things have gone beyond crazy and there will never be anything to approach rationality. However, I will post the poem.

Fear Is Not A Halloween Mask!

Fear is not a Halloween mask,
nor is it a walk through a graveyard.
Fear is waking up behind a dumpster
knowing that you can never let down your guard.

Fear is not ghosts and ghouls in fiction books,
nor is it a jack-o’-lantern’s evil grin.
Fear is having a pain in your side
and a bullet mark on your skin.

Fear is not a witch riding on a broom,
nor is it a cauldron boiling hot.
Fear is looking into the eyes of a killer
right before you’re about to get shot.

Fear is not a vampire biting on a neck,
nor is it a movie about a Nightmare On Elm Street.
Fear is the life you live of desperation,
hopelessness, misery and defeat.

No, we don’t need Halloween
to bring out the fear in our lives.
All we need do is live another day
to know real fear and why it thrives.

So no, we don’t need Halloween to bring out the fear in our lives. All we need do is face another day to know real fear and why it thrives. It thrives because hate thrives. That hate is meant to induce fear. And hate thrives because there are those who incite others to act out on their hate, whether it is to get elected or re-elected or to promote an agenda of an ‘all white Amerikkka’ or for some other reason. Fear is a real part of our lives, the fear of just going to the store to shop for back-to-school items and realizing that anyone can be carrying a high-powered assault weapon ready to aim it at us because Americans are armed to the teeth. The calls for gun control are too little, too late because as I have already stated, Americans are armed to the teeth. And now people are beginning to fear ‘living’ since it is quite clear that hatred kills and hatred is everywhere!

Welcome to AmeriKKKA! Why would you want to come here??!!

Centers For Disease Control (CDC), Go To Hell!

suicide of the rich is a public health problem for the CDC

 

 

And here we go again! Read the headline and if this isn’t some goddamn shit, then I don’t know what is!

CDC investigates why so many high school students in wealthy Palo Alto have committed suicide

Over the course of nine months in 2009 and 2010, six Palo Alto teenagers committed suicide. Between 2010 and 2014, an average of 20 children and young adults died of suicide annually in Santa Clara County.

In response to what Santa Clara County officials have called an urgent public health problem, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is launching an epidemiological study on teen suicide in the area. A team of suicide prevention specialists are arriving in Santa Clara this Tuesday for a two-week site visit.

While these federal teams generally act on infectious disease outbreaks, the San Jose Mercury News reported, this investigation signals a rare instance of CDC dispatching a unit for a chronic health issue.

Let me get this straight! Twenty rich white kids die annually from committing suicide and the CDC considers this to be a ‘public health problem’ and decides to investigate. How is this a public health problem? And why is it that inner city kids who get gunned down by the hundreds is not perceived as a public health problem? Why is it not a public health problem when Black people are gunned down by the hundreds annually by racist KKKops? Why is there no investigation being initiated by the CDC over this public health problem? Twenty white kids kill themselves and an investigation is launched. Hundreds of Black kids die because of their situation of lead in the water as is the case in Flint, MI, NO water as is the case in Detroit, MI and Baltimore, MD, getting caught in the line of gang-related gun violence, getting themselves shot dead by KKKops for playing in parks and yet, there is no cause for alarm or for a CDC investigation. I just cannot make this shit up!

Because rich white kids’ parents have the money to persuade lawmakers and the CDC and every goddamn body else to get onboard with finding out why their kids are committing suicide, therein lies the reason for this investigation. How many poor Black parents have the resources to get the CDC off its ass to look into the plight of our Black children who are suffering through no fault of their own in inner cities that haven’t yet gone through the gentrification process? And why hasn’t the CDC initiated an investigation into how many poor Black kids have been rendered homeless by gentrification? Why is that not a public health problem? Why did the water shut-off crisis in Detroit not get the CDC off its ass and declare that to be a public health problem? Even the United Nations declared the Detroit water shut-offs to be a human rights violation. Why didn’t the CDC intervene on behalf of the poor Black children in Flint, MI when it was found that lead was poisoning their water? If anything is a public health problem, poisoned water is a public health problem. But from the CDC, all we heard was the sound of crickets chirping. I fucking wonder why! Like hell I do! Money talks and those Black people don’t have any to talk for them!

Black folks, do you still not know where you stand in this shithole? Are you seriously thinking that you are going to get some relief from mass incarceration, poisoned water, skyrocketing rents while your wages remain stagnant, gentrification, a school-to-prison pipeline, mass unemployment of inner city youth, homelessness, drug addiction and the goddamn list is endless? Of course not. You don’t have any goddamn money and therefore, you are rendered voiceless. Our children have no need to commit suicide simply because they have too much shit and don’t know what to do with it, our children are too busy being a victim of genocide. But we need to focus on twenty rich white kids who committed suicide because THAT right there is a public health problem; a crisis of the highest magnitude and stop that shit right now, goddamn it!

You see, it is a really ugly ass nightmare being the kid of rich parents. There is just so much pressure to achieve and succeed and follow in mommy and daddy’s footsteps because they expect everything from their children. They expect them to become investment bankers and corporate lawyers and the expectations are just too much for the kids of the filthy rich to deal with and so they have no choice but to go and play on the train tracks. They have no choice but to bungee jump off a really high ass cliff. So little Black kids, this is why you don’t want to be rich. It comes with too many issues and problems and bungee cords attached. Of course, there is no problem of where you are going to sleep at night; what with fifteen bedrooms to choose from. There is no problem of what you are going to eat because all you need do is grab your wallet with twenty credit cards in it, jump into your brand new Bentley and cruise in style to the nearest upscale restaurant and voila! Carte blanche! And if you mow somebody down after having shown the bartender a fake ID and got wasted, well there’s that ‘Affluenza’ defense that can be put to use to get the lily white-assed shits off. But being the kid of rich white parents is not at all easy and so committing suicide is en vogue. All the rich white kids are doing it and their parents can pay for some officials to come down hard on the CDC to investigate and put an end to that horrible new public health problem of “Too Rich To Want To Live!” That is THE public health problem of today! Never mind, the real problems that plague Black communities all across this shithole that really is of epidemic proportions. Who cares about that shit? Certainly NOT the CDC. They’re too busy running around in rich neighborhoods trying to find out why little bad ass Johnny can’t deal with being rich. Ain’t that a bitch?

Here’s an idea! What about the parents? Where are the parents of these suicides? Why haven’t they stepped up to the plate to find out why their offspring are ‘offing’ themselves? Why are the parents not trying to figure this shit out? Because as usual, they just pay someone else to figure shit out while they enjoy the relaxing facial treatment at the spa, while they engage in a much needed game of golf, while they are busy taking an around-the-world-cruise. Let the CDC figure it all out and fill ’em in when they get back from that extended vacation. Meanwhile, little bad ass Johnny, here’s another credit card, now get out of my face!

I am past fed the fuck up with this endless, in our face shit that is almost too outrageous to be believed. I still cannot wrap my head around the fact that the CDC has initiated an investigation of twenty rich white kids in California that committed suicide and this has all but been declared, a public health emergency. For the love of ……!!!!!!!!! Meanwhile, there ain’t a goddamn thing wrong in poor Black communities all across this country that has resulted in hundreds if not thousands of deaths, annually. No cause for concern. No cause for alarm. No cause for a CDC investigation. It is just the business as usual of the genocide of the Negro race! Now let’s celebrate this shit during Black History Month!
