I clicked like because I like that Steve Benson calls attention to this tragic but important story. But I am sad for it, as I’m sure Benson also is.
In the age of Trump, those who carry the flags of the KKKonfederacy and Nazis — literally the flags of slavery, oppression and genocide that REAL AMERICANS crushed in World War II and the Civil War respectively — feel emboldened.
They march openly in Charlottesville and the fake “president” defends them. A Coast Guard lieutenant and former Marine is found to have a massive arsenal and a detailed plan to assassinate PROgressives and the fake “president” is silent.
And a major newspaper editor calls for a rebirth of the “Birth of a Nation” (D.W. Griffith’s epic tribute to the Ku Klux Klan as the ”nation” referenced) and, again, the fake “president” is silent.
