#TrumpProtest aka #TrumpRiot

Not even a week and the riots have started.  I can sympathize with those who PEACEFULLY protest, but when you start attacking people physically and destroying property you lose my sympathy.  Violence and hate is not the answer.  I understand that people are afraid of what the future holds, however I must ask….where was the outrage when the DNC was outed for sabotaging Bernie Sanders campaign?  Where were the Days of Rage then?  The system has always been rigged no matter who won.  It does not matter if you do not like nor voted for Trump he is our President.  These are the same words of wisdom stated by Liberals as a counter for those who didn’t want to accept Barack Obama as our President.  However, now it’s different.  Now it’s civil unrest for a process that hasn’t changed in over 200 years.

A Peaceful anti-Trump Protest

Word of advice, do something about the Democratic Party or, here’s a better idea, get a Third Party out of obscurity and into the light.  Did you know that had more people voted Jill Stein she f she had received at least 5% of the votes it would’ve entitled the Green Party $10 million and recognition as a valid opposing party.  But no, both Democrats and Republicans came together and shouted down those who supported Third Party candidates as “waste of votes” and told us to “vote for the lesser evil”.  Looks like those mind sets really did you pro-mainstream parties well.  Nicely done….thanks.

To those protesting peacefully and with compassion in your heart for your fellow American, I support you and applaud you.  To those destroying property and hurt people, I don’t support you.  You hurt the movement and make all valid points and arguments invalid with hate and violence.

Let the revolution be a revolution based on love for our fellow human being and American and not hate directed at those who oppose our ideas.  Hatred only leads to fascism.

Being Colorblind in America

This isn’t about the genetic condition of colorblindness, but rather not acknowledging the importance of ones melanin content of their flesh.  Today, being colorblind is somehow akin to denying the existence of racism in America, which is just a bullshit excuse to keep racialism alive and well in the country.

I was raised colorblind and it was quite effective.  The idea of “black” and “white” didn’t mean jack shit to me.  It made no sense to apply color to a human being.  I hung out with “black” kids, “white” kids and even a half Native American kid without ever a thought coming to my mind about how different they were to me.  In my mind, they weren’t different.  They were kids like me who wanted to have fun and that was it.  It wasn’t until high school did the racialist agenda get packed into my skull.  Race became important to acknowledge and bow down to.  My colorblindness was cast away for awhile as the education  system re-educated me on what race meant to others who weren’t lucky enough to escape the shackles of racialism.

Racialism are the shackles that keep us human beings subservient to the ruling elite.  It keeps us thoroughly divided without ever truly uniting against the common enemy we all have: the oligarchy.  The oligarchy is comprised of the Democrat and Republican parties. Despite their differences on the surface, beneath the exterior of benevolence lies the beating heart of a dark hydra (two heads, same body) that push the racialist agenda onto their constituents.  If power comes from unity then the idea of keeping us divided along racial lines is important to the two party oligarchy that seek to rule over us instead of working for us, which is the way it’s supposed to be.

There are those racialists who keep the lie alive by stating that being colorblind is false and denies racism. Being colorblind does not deny racism especially since we live in a racialist society.  Anyone who denies that racism exists from all sides of our society are delusional.  However, being colorblind and denying the existence of race is the first step in defeating racism.  By keeping race alive it keeps us divided along those lines which in turn keeps racism thriving in the deep, dark depths known white nationalism, black nationalism, hispanic nationalism…etc.  In order to bring down these walls of separation we have to acknowledge the fact that race doesn’t exist and is simply a byproduct of evolution and nothing more.  The melanin content of our skin does not make us any better or any worse than someone with a different melanin skin content.  Once we become educated on the facts will we then finally unite as human beings.

2016: The Fracturing of the Democratic and Republican Parties

Watching the insanity of Debbie Wasserman-Schultz dealing with the fallout of her comments on Bernie Sanders and the disunity at the RNC last week, what we’re witnessing is (FINALLY) the fracturing of the two parties dominance over American politics.  Since I’ve been politically active I’ve never seen such deep fissures develop within the two major parties.  I celebrate these developing fissures because it finally allows for the seeds of Third Parties to take root and grow through.  So far, it seems that the Libertarian and Green parties may be able to finally develop momentum to progress and start taking seats of power in DC.

With the apparent sabotage of Bernie Sanders campaign by his own party perhaps we can see him break away from the Democratic Party and take up the reigns of another party that is willing to allow him to do his work in the way he wants to. What happened to Bernie Sanders was the act of a party willing to be tyrannical and unfair in its dealings with those whom they don’t agree with.  Bernie Sanders was right from the get go, that the system is rigged and he was the victim of a rigged system within his own party, the Democratic Party.

Ted Cruz, I wonder if he too was the victim of the rigged system within the Republican Party?  It would only make sense for the ascension of that Prince of Clowns Donald Trump.  Ted Cruz has the integrity to not bow down at the feet of Trump like all of the other fools in Jester Trumps court did at the RNC last week.  However, people have called into question the political future of Ted Cruz within the Republican Party.  That should concern Ted Cruz very much and should get the gears turning in his head whether or not he should jump off the sinking Republican ship and find a Third Party lifeboat waiting for him nearby.

As centrist I would rather be having an election between Ted Cruz and Bernie Sanders.  Such an election would make it difficult to figure whom I’ll vote for, but I’d rather have that than having the option of Criminal Hillary or Criminal Trump.  The current two choices just make me want to write in George Carlins name rather than have to vote for the Democrat or Republican criminal.

Yes, I relish the deep fissures within both the Democrat and Republican parties because their power over American politics will begin (hopefully) to wane allowing for a Third Party to take up the challenge of leadership in America.  A true democracy doesn’t have you choosing trash over garbage.  A true democracy allows the trash, garbage and fresh to campaign for leadership.  So let both parties fall apart, don’t try to mend them.  They must understand that they can’t hold power forever and that eventually their tyranny can end allowing a Third Party into DC.

First World Privilege

Having read an article talking about white, hetero, male, cis {add whatever stupid  label you wish} privilege, I thought the privilege that ALL Americans share which is First World Privilege.  Yes, First World Privilege, the privilege shared by those of all faiths, creeds, color, socio-economic class, gender, orientation and so forth, to complain about their lives being “oppressed” (while not suffering the consequences of what a truly oppressed civilization and people endure, I mean just ask a North Korean or a citizen of Eritrea). An oppressed, truly oppressed, nation and people do not enjoy such privilege. Lets also tack on the access to the plethora of available high tech gadgets such as cellphones, computers, gaming consoles, flat screen TVs and such.  A poor nation does not have this privilege.  Most citizens in poor countries barely have running water let alone access to the internet.

So, next time someone wants to lecture others on their supposed privilege remember, remember to check your First World Privilege.

This goes Right and Left, none of you are oppressed….except in your minds.

ThinkProgress and Its Blatant Ignorance on Asatru

One of my favorite Asatru groups, The Asatru Community posted an article written by the supposedly progressive website Think Progress titled The Religion of Choice for White SupremacistsIt illustrates the same stereotypical nonsense that Christians today use to demonize our Heathen faith, that it’s filled with primarily hateful minions of neo-Nazis and other white supremacy groups. As someone who s half Hispanic, I have to say I take offense to the misrepresentation of our Heathen faith.  First off, ThinkProgress is supposed to be a progressive site which means progressing past creating hateful stereotypes and mocking minority religious faiths.  For example lets look at this line:

“It’s a comic book religion in a lot of ways,”

Really?  That’s the same nonsense that conservative Christians have said to me many times.  Taking up this mantle of trying to discredit a valid faith is a low blow and only shows the similarities that ignorance of certain instills.  It’s much like how Donald Trump has tried to discredit the Islamic faith.  So, in order to further demonize a faith that some on the Left feel is catering to white supremacy they need to stoop into the cesspool that is Donald Trump?

I understand bringing awareness to the bastardization of Asatru by filthy racists, but the article smacks of painting a picture of a faith with a really broad brush.  Not all Asatruar are racists and not all Asatruar are white.  Perhaps an interview with non-racist Asatruar might have helped expand the minds of the authors of this hideous, hateful article.  Instead, they only cite white supremacists, which are only a minority in our Heathen faith.  If you replaced Islamacists with white supremacists and replace the cited material with quotes from jihadists ThinkProgress would be all over the article saying it was Islamophobic and offensive.  In this case, I think it’s proper to state that perhaps ThinkProgress has a tendency towards Asatruophobia.  How else do you explain such a ridiculous article that is offensive in its own right?  How do you explain the one sidedness and ignorance that is displayed?  Asatruophobia.  The same phobia that monotheists tend to be infected with.

I am a half Hispanic Asatruar and I am proud of my religion and thankful for the Gods calling upon me.  This is something that, unless experienced, many won’t ever know nor feel.   I don’t feel that I’m special because I felt the Gods calling me, it’s just an exhilerating feeling to feel the Gods walking nearby in the wooded groves or feeling the thunder rumbled the ground and believing that it’s Thor striking the anvil with mjolnir.  Call me silly or insane, so be it.  I’m not trying to convert to my belief system.  This is how my soul feels.  It’s simply a connection with the Divine, which is something anyone can feel deep in their soul.

Marxist Ignorance

Religion

This morning I read an article on this website called Socialist Appeal about science and how those of any religion tend to be ignorant of science.  It also speculates that once material wealth is abundant for all that religion would disappear entirely.

The coming socialist revolution will establish universal high-quality education, placing the wondrous power of modern technology at the feet of the people and allowing it to be used according a democratic plan in the interests of all. This revolution will be the negation of all traditional faiths and superstitious rituals, as people voluntarily drift away from these, on the basis of material wealth and security, available for the first time to everyone.

That’s a bold statement to make considering that in most cases becoming religious or spiritual isn’t because a lack of security and/or material wealth, but rather the emptiness produced by being solely reliant on such.  This is one classic example of the ignorance shown by Marxists in general, they believe that once people are “happy”, within a materialistic and superficial paradigm, that religion will disappear.  Well, Christians believed this very same thing when they converted our ancestors from paganism to Christianity, that once the light of Christ entered the souls of the pagan that “happiness” would become more common place in society.  However, with the resurgence of paganism, especially in Iceland a country that should be, by all means in the realm of socialism, “happy”, but somethings missing apparently that Iceland is the first nation in over a thousand years to build a pagan temple to the old Norse Gods. Scandinavian socialism is held in such high regard by socialists in the West, so shouldn’t the Marxist hypothesis be true in this respect?  Seems like the hypothesis is null and void because for a nation to be abundant and accepting enough to allow a pagan temple to be built shows that religion will never die out no matter how much the Marxists want their ideology to be held in sacrosanct.

I’m coming from this as someone highly into the sciences and currently attending college for a Biotechnology degree, so to assume because I believe in multiple Gods doesn’t mean I’m an ignorant simpleton.  In fact, the director of the National Health Institute and leader of the Human Genome Project, Francis Collins, is a Christian, though not a Creationist Christian, but a Christian who believes in Yahweh and Jesus Christ.  I seriously doubt this man would’ve been allowed to conduct such an important project if he were simply a feeble minded, Dark Age mystic.  Another example is my father, another Evolutionist Christian, who most likely has a genius IQ with all the things he DIYed and the problem solving skills shown. However, Marxists would figure him to be a superstitious dolt.

Race
Within much of the Leftist spectrum is a tendency to be shameful of the actions of their ancestors, which is called “white guilt”.  I find this trend to be ridiculous and a sign of a weak mind.  Since Lizzy Borden is my distant relative, should I feel shameful for her acts of violence?  Gods no!  Why would I since I wasn’t even born then?  So it must be asked why white Leftists should shame and induce shameful feelings within other white people about actions they themselves had no hand nor control over? No one should have any shame for what their ancestors did, because there is nothing you can do to change the past.  The past is an immovable mountain, however the present and future is quite malleable.  You affect change now instead of wasting your time feeling guilty for the past that you had no hand in.  One of those discussions we need is the discussion that eliminates the idea of melanin based racial labels and viewing all people as what they really are: The Human Race.  However, Marxists still enjoy dividing people up into small, easily controlled parcels of human beings in order to better control their attempt at social engineering.  It’s the same tactic used by the two major parties in power in America today, the Democrats and Republicans.  In order to keep absolute power the people must be absolutely divided.

Conclusion
I used to be a Marxist years ago and I have no regrets.  After all, it helped me formulate my slight socialist with a libertarian edge ideology.  I consider myself patriotic in regards to my country and I support the Constitution.  It’s perhaps one of the most perfect documents outlining our freedoms these days.  I support the 2nd Amendment to the point where I believe open carry should be allowed.  Though I would prefer a battle axe to a gun, but to each their own.  I support states rights and a decentralized form of government, meaning that the Federal Government interferes as little as possible with what states and their population vote and decide for themselves.  I support gay marriage and gay adoption.  I don’t see anything repulsive about this.   I support Universal Healthcare, which I think can still be decided by states to implement or not without the Federal government. I’m neutral on abortion.  I have my reasons, but I’ll keep them to myself. I believe in absolute religious freedom which extends to businesses as well.  If a business wishes to not patronize a certain group of people, that’s their right.  However, they must not whine about the loss of profits due to their decision.  This of course goes beyond Christian businesses, but also other religiously based businesses such as pagan ones who wouldn’t want to patronize Christians or other monotheists. I’m pro-animal rights and pro-environment, obviously.

That’s just a few things where no one can truly pinpoint my ideology, which I think if anyone follows one ideology to the T, then it’s nothing more than ignorance.  I believe both sides of the political spectrum have something to contribute to our political system.  Whether socialism or capitalism wins out for absolute control of a country it’s simply totalitarianism.

Ferguson Part Deux

So Ferguson is once again a flashpoint endemic of a society that thinks race is something to be held in a place of honor.  Sorry, but I don’t honor the illusion of race, I honor the Gods.  So, if you’re someone who believes is something to be proud of then please leave because this isn’t a blog that thinks race based on the melanin content (or lack thereof) of ones skin is something that should be held in sacrosanct.  I respect ethnic culture, but not race.  There is a vast different between the two.

Now, about Ferguson, even though I’ve never been to protest ever in my life I’m pretty certain throwing frozen water bottles at the police you say you fear is protesting really, but trying to instigate violence.  Ferguson protesters, the 1960’s called and they’re saying you’re protesting wrong! How are you going to say that you fear the police, but yet continue to provoke them, or try to anyway, into violent conflict?  Sorry, but I fear predatory creatures bigger than me so in no way would I provoke a lion or a tiger by throwing stuff at it.  Hel, I wouldn’t even do it if there were a group of people with me, because no matter what someone I call kin will get hurt in the process.  So not only are they trying to provoke the police, they’re being disregarding to the safety of their kin as well. How does that make for a peaceful protest?  How does that honor the slain?  It doesn’t.  It creates more problems than there should be.

I guess time will tell in what way this will all go in Ferguson.  I’m sure, like with everything in this society that relies on blurbs rather than in depth analysis, it’ll fizzle to nothing and on the next ratings inducing “crisis”. Black/White/Human Lives Matter?  Yeah, not really.  Ratings Matter, not the lives of people.  If people really, REALLY cared about others we wouldn’t be reducing ourselves to racial labels and uniting regardless of our melanin content.  If people really cared, there would be a diverse mosaic of people protesting PEACEFULLY (meaning not throwing stuff at police and trying to instigate violence) in Ferguson right now, but there isn’t and that’s absolutely disgraceful.

In a world that is in chaos politically, socially and environmentally, how can the human race sustain another 100 years?

In a world that is in chaos politically, socially and environmentally, how can the human race sustain another 100 years? – Stephen Hawking

I’ll do my best to answer this question posited by Stephen Hawking back in 2006.

First and foremost, humanity must recognize it’s kinship by disposing of the idea of race.  This very thing is the greatest barrier that plagues our species.  We are blind to our close relation to each other and deny the fact that the human race is only one race and NOT an amalgamation of races under the umbrella of the Human genus.  Race is nothing but traits produced by evolution within a given environment and nothing more.  It’s sadly held in sacrosanct these days all over the world, but it’s a disease and who in their right mind holds a disease as an idol?  It’s a disease that infects the mind, blinding human beings of their potential.  Potential is destroyed because once you apply that ridiculous label of “white”, “black” and etc. you pigeonhole yourself and everyone inside and outside of your “race” expects you to be something within the parameters of that “races” limited scope.  Once you discard “race” like garbage, you are free to wander the landscape before without any borders or restrictions.  You no longer have to worry about someone saying “You’re acting white/black/Asian/Hispanic….etc.” because it will no longer matter because it is no longer sacred.  Therefore your full potential can be unlocked.

Humanity has always been divided by it’s tribalistic nature and still is tribalistic today, but today people actually want that to remain because it is profitable to them.  What they don’t understand is that it’s helping pull our species towards extinction because all of the resources and energy needed to progress humanity is being wasted on petty things like racial division.  Despite our divisions we have done amazing things in the areas of science, philosophy, art and so forth.  Now, I dare you to imagine what we could do if we were united once and for all as the Human Race.  That is the crux of my answer and why it is absolutely important to overcome race all together. Once we discard race we will heave ourselves over the wall that has separated humanity and come together to figure out solutions for everything that ails our species.  Everything will come into play once we are united and nothing can stop us but ourselves.

This is how we progress in the universe.

Why Race Needs to Be Obliterated From Human Minds

As we progress further into the 21st Century, racial tensions have increased by the simplistic manipulation by the New Royalty aka the politicians of both the Left and the Right and the Race Baiting minions of said politicians. Race is the disease that infests the human mind like a virus running rampant destroying life giving cells on the body.  Instead of destroying the body of the host, it destroys the mind of the person and creates the illusion that we humans are different in any way.  Except we aren’t different, we are all of the same species.  The only thing different is the amount of melanin contained within the flesh of human beings.  This is simply superficial, but because we are a superficial species race tends to be held  sacrosanct, an idol of worship that a lot of people get on their knees and blindly follow.  Race, in other words, is nothing but an illusion created by the powers that be to control the population via forced culture (aka stereotypes) and absolute division.  With unity of the human species comes true solutions and power unlike anything we have ever seen.

If humanity were to cast aside their pride and realize the destructive nature of recognizing race, we would be able to solve the problems that afflict this planet because no borders would separate us anymore.  We would be united for the common cause of bettering our species.  We could finally prove to the universe that we are a species able to overcome our petty, superficial differences.  People like David Duke, Saida Grundy, and other race baiting, fear mongering zealots would not be able to profit anymore on keeping humanity divided.  We would be too educated afterwards to allow these hateful zealots room in our hearts and minds.  We would finally be set free from the shackles that recognizing race puts us in.  Our full potential would be used once and for all for everyone and not a select few.

Humanity must once and for all be united as one race, the Human Race!  That is who we are regardless of the traits of high melanin content or not given to us by evolution of our species in certain environments.  We are Human Beings, not black, white, red, brown, yellow or whatever else.  Those superficial labels destroy our species, keeps us divided, and harms people along the way.  Racial recognition is an evil that needs to be stamped out like an ember that threatens a forest on a dry, summer day.  Today, from here on out, make a commitment to yourself and others that you will no longer see them as one of those superficial labels, but as a fellow traveler on our planet Earth, as a Human Being!  Boldly proclaim that we are all Brothers and Sisters of Earth and of one race, the Human Race!  This is the revolution we truly need right now!

Why the Left and Right Need to Be Defeated

The current state of affairs between all races in this country are atrocious.  The Left have people believing that white people, their supposed privilege and ignorance are to blame the lack of opportunities for blacks while the Right screams, in varying volumes, white genocide.  Both are horrificly wrong.  If both sides would step down from their lofty towers down to the level of us common folk, they’d realize how wrong they are, but then this would mean they have been lying and reduces the likelihood of getting what they truly want: votes.  Creating a division between people establishes a power structure for both Left and Right to maintain via fear.  That power structure also allows politicians to keep their careers going while promising change that never comes to fruition.  The scapegoats tend to be the party opposite of the one scapegoating.  A stalemate is required to keep power while keeping busy with racial strife so that we the people don’t rebel against an inept system if government.  The real war isn’t between blacks and whites, but between the politicians and the people.  The Left and Right are both villains keeping people divided along racial grounds.  This doesn’t progress our society, it only hinders it.  Americans of all races need to unite against the behemoth of Left and Right oligarchy that wants a totalitarian system more than freedom and well being for all.
