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.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??!!
