I got scooped in on this by a friend who is involved with  Solidarity US ( http://www.solidarity-us.org/ ) and I've spent the last 5 minutes literally going "WOW!  That was really, really good!"

Here's what it was:

It seems someone with the Twitter handle @JuliusGoat posted the "Best Twitter Threads in History", about the white supremacist/Nazi march in Charlottesville.

I've put them all together for you, but reading it straight is even better, IMO:

Image may contain: 4 people, people standing and night

"Imagine if these people ever faced actual oppression.

Nobody is trying to legislate away their right to marry. Nobody is trying to make them buy insurance to pay for 'male health care.'

The law never:

Enslaved their great-grandparents
Robbed their grandparents
Imprisoned their parents
Shot them when unarmed

There is no massive effort at the state and local level to disenfranchise them of the vote.

There is no history of centuries of bad science devoted to 'proving' their intellectual inferiority.

There is no travel ban on them because of their religion. There is no danger for them when they carry dangerous weaponry publicly.

Their churches were never burned. Their lawns never decorated with burning crosses. Their ancestors never hung from trees.

Their mothers aren't being torn away by ICE troopers and sent away forever. They won't be forced to leave the only country they ever knew.

The president has not set up a hotline to report crime committed at their hands.

They are chanting 'we will not be replaced.'

Replaced as ... what?

I'll tell you.

Replaced as the only voice in public discussions. Replaced as the only bodies in the public arena. Replaced as the only life that matters.

THIS is 'white people' oppression: We used to be the only voice. Now we hold the only microphone.

THIS is 'oppression' of white Christians in this country. Christmas used to be the only holiday acknowledged, now it's not.

I would so love to see these people get all the oppression they insist they receive, just for a year. Just to see.

Give them a world where you ACTUALLY can't say Christmas. A world where the name "Geoff" on a resume puts it in the trash.

Give them a world where they suddenly get a 20% pay cut, and then 70 women every day tell them to smile more.

Give them a world where their polo shirt makes people nervous, so they're kicked off the flight from Pittsburgh to Indianapolis.

Give them a world where they inherited nothing but a very real understanding of what oppression really is.

Give them a world where if they pulled up on a campus with torches lit and started throwing hands, the cops would punch their eyes out.

Put THAT in your Tiki torches and light it, you sorry Nazi bitches."

@Amy: Hate has to be taught, so start 'em young:

Circa 1992. Still relevant. “The State Patrol made me be there. His momma and daddy made him be there,” said the officer. (Interview here)

Sorry Safe Bet but you know I think they discontinued Peanuts sometime ago unless it's now syndicated. I know it was a mental challenge for you.

If they are going to allow the BLM to shout for the murder of the police on Independence Avenue in DC and allow 81 card carrying Communists in Congress while Soros backed radicals chase and beat down Teenagers supporting Trump in several US cities why is the violence of the left permissible in Charlottesville and not the presence of opposed groups?

Comment by Safe Bet's Amy on August 14, 2017 at 3:19pm

LOLOL  Doc Vega, you of all people should be careful of tossing terms like  "mental challenge" around, especially when those voices you hear tell you to do it.

As for 81 commies in Congress?  I WISH!  BTW, got any proof of that?  I'd really appreciate you sharing it with me because I want to send them each a big thank you note.

P.S.  You DO realize that Soros is one of your fascist loving buddies, right?  Who the hell do you think it is that keeps propping up the neo-Nazis in the Ukraine?
