The Fundamental Transformation of the United States Has Now Become a Breakneck Mission to Dismantle, Defeat & Destroy It

Ignore the in-my-face obvious issues and lend all of my attention to unwarranted, groundless non-issues? Not happening!


We Were in a Good Place

America not only broke the chains of tyranny...America ended the practice of slavery!

A political party, the Republican Party, was formed, in order to do so and along with abolitionists, who were already working tirelessly, endangering their own lives, in order to put an end to slavery once and for all and with the leadership of one very special man, President Abraham Lincoln; this Country, the United States of America...did end it!

In fact, Fredrick Douglass, a man who escaped slavery and became an abolitionist, would later speak at the very ‘Emancipation‘ statue that militant Marxists are hellbent on destroying:

  • Former slaves commissioned and paid for this statue, they took great pride in raising funds and awareness and in seeing it through
  • Abraham Lincoln had nothing to do with it, he wasn't around to commission it or to do anything else for that matter, he was dead; assassinated, because of hate, because not all wanted an end to slavery

It's time to get it straight:

Slavery did not begin here, but it sure as heck ended here!


We went through some turbulent times during the 1960's, no doubt about it.
The assassination of a loved President, John F. Kennedy, the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, who had been such a crusader for equal rights, the controversial Vietnam war....times were bleak and civil unrest was rampant.

But, the 70's were better, as far as race relations go. I remember a couple of incidents in high school, but nothing that was anything close to the volatile 60’s.

It wasn’t perfect, we did have Jimmy Carter (D) as President and he was in way over his head, but if you don’t count the bad attitudes in the long gas lines or his screwed up foreign policy, it was a peaceful time.

There was continued peace and harmony throughout the 80's and 90's, continuing on through the time that my kids were in high school, the late 1990's/early 2000's

I don't remember any major cases of blatant discrimination until Clarence Thomas, a conservative, faced off with the Democrats, for a seat on the Supreme Court

He was not treated with respect, they did not treat him well at all and there was a woman, Anita Hill, who was to end him, before it could go any further.

But, she had no credibility, no story to tell, just what she perceived as sexual innuendo.
It was such a lame strategy, but as we’ve seen, time and time again, when a Conservative is being considered for the Supreme Court, it is what Democrats do!

We were doing pretty darn good, if you don't count the fact that Islamic Terrorists were trying to end us! But then...Barack Obama came along, with his "fundamental transformation", his pitting of one group against the other, his apologizing for the existence of America and his making absolutely everything about race!

What is going on today is still about pitting us against one another, keeping conflict alive and well, controlling the narrative in order to control the people, as they work to wreak havoc, disunite us and tear us apart!

Co-Founder of Black Lives Matter (BLM) Patrisse Cullors, said it herself, she and another co-founder, are "trained Marxists"

Their Bible is the Communist Manifesto

It is a mission of chaos, of tearing us apart, disrupting our lives and livelihoods and ending the U.S., as we know it.

It is all about installing something that none of us, regardless of our skin color, our job, our religion, amount of education, political party affiliation, etc., want any part of!


Defeating the Free World is their Primary Goal

As the video shared below indicates, in both the interview and with the heading chosen, “You’ve been donating to Marxists”, you begin to get a clear idea of what is really behind all of this modern day madness and mayhem.

Communism is never voted in, it uses the old method of conquering...which, incidentally, America ended, along with tyrannical rule and slavery, centuries ago.

While Abraham Lincoln was issuing the Emancipation Proclamation in the United States of America, an unknown German, by the name of Karl Marx would soon come to be known as, the Founder of Modern Communism.

Marxists/Communists use control measures over the people of a Country, via a three-pronged utilization of economics, politics and social relations/situations.
It has been said that war between capitalists and communists, is inevitable and that capitalism cannot stand up to communism.

When Karl Marx wrote the Communist Manifesto in 1848, it urged workers to revolt against capitalism (against those providing workers with jobs)
Even back in the mid-1800’s, peaceful protests were encouraged, but if that didn’t work, then it was necessary to turn to armed forces!

Defeating the free world, is their primary goal!

An Interview with Co-Founder of Black Lives Matter, Patrisse Cullors

Erasing the United States of America

Now, those wishing to erase our history...and erase us, have much bigger fish to fry {in reaching their goal} than mere one hundred year old memorials and crosses and books, they have their sights on statues of former U.S. Presidents.

They are trying to say that it is all about racism, but when the WWII Memorial, the Holocaust Museum, churches and Abraham Lincoln are targeted, we know that something entirely different is behind it!

In fact, you just watched, one of the co-founders of Black Lives Matter, founded during the Obama Administration, make it very clear in this radio interview that she and another co-founder are, "trained organizers", they are “trained as Marxists”!

Karl Marx, atheist, communist, co-writer of the Communist Manifesto, is their inspiration and the Communist Manifesto, is their bible.

But, we are supposed to ignore all of that and pretend that BLM is something else, as we are all encouraged to get behind the movement of “something else”, follow them blindly or risk being labeled “racist” and “a part of the problem”.

I know, I have had it happen to me!

Quite the masquerade, we are all being drawn into...wouldn’t you agree?

To be clear, I do not believe that the majority of the people supporting BLM, understand their true mission, they are caught up in the masquerade and they haven't taken the time to do their homework.

Total Fraud

When I first read the story about Bubba Wallace NASCAR driver, and his team finding a noose hanging in the garage he would be using at the Talladega Speedway, I thought, no way!

There is high security and cameras everywhere at all of these racing venues. Otherwise, could you imagine if just anyone could get into these places and have access to the driver's cars?

Who could possibly get passed all of that security to get away with something so devious...especially now, with such civil unrest?

It didn’t make any sense to me whatsoever and I questioned it, as I always do, everything!

But, in the meantime, it did make perfect sense to mainstream media, to the Democratic Party, to those that automatically are programmed to think the very worst of their fellow man, neighbor, sports fan.....
They didn’t question it, it made sense to them, they ran for the cameras as quickly as they could, before anyone knew a thing about anything!

Before we found out that it was a rope used to open and close the garage door, in place, since last year, when another driver was using it, I was among those not buying it. If you’ve ever been around garages, it is not an unusual sight.

Why are all so eager to glom on, think the worst of their fellow man/woman....of their fellow American, of this Country?

How infiltrated are Marxists in this Country?

I think we now know how much influence BLM/Marxists have, they have become a part of the mainstream.

They have been accepted and embraced and instead of questioning their true motives, we are supposed to join in.

It really is, the perfect ruse, when you take the time to think about it.

You aren’t to question, you are to accept; for if you question, you are pointed at, singled out, labeled a racist, part of the problem...so best to just go along, with the complete and total fraud!

Where To?

I had mentioned in another article about a young man we met while on vacation in Aruba. He had escaped Venezuela and had found employment in Aruba. He spoke of his once thriving, with all of its natural beautiful, Country, which he no longer felt safe in.

He didn't know what he was going to do next, he was teary-eyed and clearly shaken when describing Venezuela's demise, as he urged us to stop the socialism {communism, Marxism) which we, Americans, seemed to be embracing.

Of course we all told him that we wanted no part of it!

The young lady in the following video manages to keep a stiff upper lip, but she too is reaching out, trying to get through to us!

I've thought a lot lately about the many immigrants I've heard about, read about, seen for myself talk about...who have made their way to the United States of America. They have worked to become U.S. citizens and always exude such pride and such optimism in that accomplishment.

This young lady in the video, these others just mentioned, were able to come to the United States of America for opportunity and freedom, but where do people go once we become no different than any other conquered Country?

Success! The left has done it, they've created enough chaos and confusion to pull the rug out from under us. They've cheated, lied, used scare tactics and threats and have intimidated their way into power! Seemingly to a point where it may be nearly impossible to find our way back.

I am not about to agree that both sides are responsible for this crumbling and deterioration of our foundation; it is one side, the left side that has pushed us to the edge.

It is one side, the right side, which is being canceled; shut out, mocked and shut down!

I still love America, I will always love my Country and will never give up on her.

I don't love what the enemies of this country think they have gotten away with, right in front of us -

My optimism may be on life support right now...but my faith is intact and I believe that good wins out in the end.

God Bless America!

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on September 26, 2020:

Thanks Demas for reading and commenting.

As we all know, it has gotten even worse since the writing of this article. Those shouting, "burn it all down", "tear it all down", "burn this Country down", "f--- it all up", are conquerors. They are enemies of this Country. There are no two ways about it!

Demas W Jasper from Today's America and The World Beyond on September 25, 2020:

Good for you presenting actual facts vs. inflated ballyhoo. Keep it up, at least you can widely post the link!

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on September 20, 2020:

I just came across this interview and believe if we had more conversations like this, which seek to expose fabrications, which can never be supported or backed up, just repeated, we could begin to heal this Nation.

When we can begin... again...to understand that we are all in this together, non-hyphenated...just Americans, (that can all, always do better)...then we can finally move on.


A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on July 06, 2020:

Gotta laugh!

Shannon Henry from Texas on July 06, 2020:

LOL! Thanks for the laugh!

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on July 06, 2020:

Hi Shan, I am with your husband! (well...you know what I mean) lol!!

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on July 06, 2020:

Hi hard sun, they've been counting Trump out since the escalator ride. It would take a book to list all that has been done to end Trump, from the start.

He must really ruffle some deep state feathers and concern the America hating deep pockets folks.

We must keep him in office, he is all that is standing between us and them....and "them" is scary!!! I can live with his New York bluntness and abrasiveness.

No one is ever really sure why that hate Trump, they just do!

I heard an interesting analogy:

Everyone hates on the band Nickelback, but in the early 2000's, they were all the rage, topping the charts. Now....it's the cool thing to hate on them and pretend that you always did.

Just throwing that out there! ;)

Don Shepard on July 06, 2020:

Trump's Mt Rushmore speech was exactly what he needed to do politically, and for America, IMO. Of course, the media painted it entirely as Trump going full racist, which is full nonsense. I still don't know if I can vote Trump, but I cannot vote the ActBlue Liberal Biden machine either. It's insane that they are trying to count Trump out of the race again. He is almost in the exact same place polling wise as he was in 2016 against Clinton at this point.

Shannon Henry from Texas on July 06, 2020:

My husband just called out, "Do you really need the Supreme Court to tell you that?" When I asked what he's talking about, he read a headline out loud: Supreme court says a state may require presidential electors to support popular vote.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on July 06, 2020:

I think people are beginning to pay attention Shannon. It would take an enormous effort or a sabbatical in Tibet...to not see the hate on display for this Country, in many of our cities, towns and states.

The assaults currently taking place, aren’t just on historic statues, memorials, markers, symbols {such as our flags throughout our history}, but on the U.S. Constitution as well. The last great hope for mankind, as many historians refer to it.

I sure hope and pray they are paying attention! :( We must do better in educating our youth, they are being fed a lot of garbage. I know I have been saying this for quite some time and I am not convinced otherwise, yet!

Shannon Henry from Texas on July 06, 2020:

It's sad to watch. No one seems to have paid attention to Venezuela. Instead, they reference Europe for things like singular paid healthcare in lieu of insurance companies.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on July 06, 2020:

No doubt!

Kyler J Falk from California on July 06, 2020:

I think that was the point we were making. Illegitimate concepts perverting reality to destructive ends.

Shannon Henry from Texas on July 06, 2020:

Brainwashed? Some people.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on July 06, 2020:

Systemic racism, power class, critical theory.....

People can throw out all of the words, phrases, explanations, theories they want...in the meantime, we are methodically being conquered!

Shannon Henry from Texas on July 06, 2020:

Seems to me like it's just become a revolt against authority, Angie. I've avoided FB the last day or so because of the crap I keep seeing. Things about "power class," for instance, rather than necessarily a race thing, although I'm sure they'd tie it into race.

Kyler J Falk from California on July 06, 2020:

Something interesting I learned about the other day was critical theory and how it is being taught and utilized as a weapon of destruction against fundamental sciences and other seedy goals. Apparently the media won't touch the stories, but neo-progressive campuses are pushing for greater recognition and acceptance of the pseudoscience as a norm.

Many people are blaming it for things such as the destruction of statues, BLM, and much of the race crimes occurring that the media won't touch such as students being attacked for their race, by their own race, for associating with higher sciences deemed racist by critical theory thought.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on July 06, 2020:

.....and now, Fredrick Douglass' statue has been ripped from its base and vandalized!

Someone tell me again, what this is all about?!?

I am all ears!

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on July 01, 2020:

Lord help us Ken!

I read an article quite some time back about Xi Jinping and his fascination with Karl Marx. You'd (well, I'd) like to think that although China is a communist country, many are working to change that.

Then to read how the current leader not only rules with an iron fist, but in addition, is fascinated by the Founder of Modern Day communism....

Now, we have this BLM movement, which has become a part of the mainstream....in the U.S.!! Although they too are fascinated with, you guessed it! Karl Marx!!

It all goes hand in hand and the time you've described may come, but it will not go down without the mother of all fights. God forbid!

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on July 01, 2020:

Hi GreenMind,

Thank you for getting back with me on my questions, but you are associating conservatives with things that Dems (the Left) OWN!

It isn't the right; Republicans, Conservatives, that are holding people back. Conservatives want to see a thriving economy working for everyone and entrepreneurs launching and succeeding in their own businesses all across America. Yes, there are many greedy crony Capitalists, BUT, it belongs to each and every one of us, it isn't owned by any one party or by any one race, that's why we have a Constitution to ensure equal opportunity for all!

Do you think it's 'the right' setting up makeshift cities in places like Seattle, do you think Republicans are willy nilly tearing down any statue they come in contact with, do you think conservatives are actively working to defund law & order?

The Democratic Party has been hijacked by the most radical fringe.... of the left!

Who on the left is speaking out against anything that is happening right now? What do you think will happen in New York City or L.A. when the Police are defunded or when no new Police recruits are coming in to takeover for those retiring?

Do you know of any one person, a blue dog-type Dem, that is speaking out against any of this madness?

I'd love to hear about them or that movement and then, I will mention them and give them full credit for daring to stand apart.

Ken Burgess from Florida on July 01, 2020:

AB Williams: "To appease the agitators and the anarchists....in order to, what?!? Keep peace?"

This is just the first step, in what will be several steps.

What happens when the police are defunded, and those police that are left refuse to do their job and stop crimes (because they are given no choice or fear for their jobs/freedoms)?

Who will be used to restore order?

Not our military... we don't want martial law, and our troops aren't likely to be willing to use force against their friends, family, fellow Americans.

So, who comes in and restores order when you don't have police, and when the military isn't used to do it?

United Nation's Peacekeepers.

Troops from places like China, Pakistan, Rwanda... people who will have no problems doing what is needed to "restore order".

GreenMind Guides from USA on July 01, 2020:

YOU: I am sorry GreenMInd, I was at work when I read through your comment and I missed some things...that's on me!

So, third thing I'd like for you to address:

You wrote, "It's still still deep in our national DNA. We are still a deeply racist society, mainly because so many of us think of Black people as not having the exact same hopes, fears, dreams, worries, capabilities, potential, and every other human thing that we do."

Who thinks this way?

ME: Racists.

YOU: What type of people are you hanging around with?

ME: Not racists.

YOU: Is this what the Left, Dems think?

ME: No, racist policies like voter suppression, job discrimination, Jim Crow laws, and school segregation have been generally preserved in our country by the conservative/right. That's why I said racism is in our national DNA, and that's why I lean Left on social issues.

YOU: Does the Democratic Party think they must take care of blacks, because they don't think blacks are capable of taking care of themselves?

ME: Some might, but that's misguided and I don't look at it that way. I think that we could be doing better in recognizing the ways in which Black people have to deal with our unequal society. That's why I think BLM and healthy, powerful demonstrations and protests are good for our country, even though they can be upsetting. They are opening eyes and starting conversations -- like this one ; )

YOU: Of course black people have the same hopes, fears, dreams, worries, capabilities, potential and every other human thing that we do!

ME: YES I'm glad you agree. I know for a fact that not all Americans do.

Please know that I'm NOT saying you're racist, or all conservatives are racist, or trying to generalize about an entire side of our country's political spectrum (though it bugs me when you do that about the Left). I think you're incredibly smart and right about a lot of things, and I value our exchanges.

Shannon Henry from Texas on July 01, 2020:

OMG Wow.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on July 01, 2020:

New York City council members went through with it!

They voted to defund the police!

To appease the agitators and the anarchists....in order to, what?!?

Keep peace?


A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on June 30, 2020:

Thank you James....I am ready for happier titles, but....

James A Watkins from Chicago on June 30, 2020:

Thank you for writing this awesome article. I could not have enjoyed it more. It is simply fabulous. I agree with you 100%.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on June 30, 2020:

Yep Shan, for example, I see that New York, NY is working very hard to be the New York of yesteryear, before Rudy Giuliani cleaned it up!!

I am thinking...if all of the NY council members do not agree tonight....to, basically, go backwards (by cutting the NYPD budget by a billion, discouraging new Police recruiting, propping up and encouraging crime and criminals, etc.) they and their families will be "the bad guys" and will be targeted.

But, this is where they are in NY tonight.

What a mess, I am running out of words.....I found a few;



Don Shepard on June 29, 2020:

Its always great to get away and even moreso nowadays with everything going on AB. We were camping for a few days when the worst if the looting and what not popped off so wasnt aware. That is until I went out to the local WalMart with my youngest and it was closed down suddenly just before 6 due to threats.

Kyle, hang in there man. Remember that there are millions of us out here, of all races, that see the madness. I had a conversation with a random guy at the grocery store just yesterday about how far gone this has gotten. Most of the people I grew up with see the lunacy. We were mostly lower middle class taught to be color blind. There is nothing wrong with that

Shannon Henry from Texas on June 29, 2020:

No, Angie, you don't!

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on June 29, 2020:

I agree Kyler, the world has gone nutso!!

I've spent a few days in the foothills of South Carolina...no internet!

I don't think I want to know what has happened since I've checked out! :(

Kyler J Falk from California on June 27, 2020:

I was just told in a conversation elsewhere that because British scientists during the colonial era tried and failed to prove that obesity was a sign of weakness, while observing other countries and focusing on people of color, that anyone who dislikes obesity is also a racist against black people. When I pointed out that devaluing an entire race based on fake sciences that have been disproved is, by its own nature, racist, they said that I was racist for trying to disprove the concept.

I am racist, because I tried to disprove already disproved sciences and say they aren't valid in any way, shape, or form in modern day science. When I said anyone who supports and propagates this idea as acceptable, that disfavoring obesity is racist, they then went on to call me fatphobic as well.

The world is F-ing nuts, and I'm getting pretty fed up with it. I didn't know where else to put this, but it seems relevant here.

Don Shepard on June 27, 2020:

"I am sorry hard sun I was doing to address your concerns and instead, got aggravated and went off in another direction."

No need to apologize A B. I understand your frustrations 100%!

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on June 27, 2020:

Just had a Google message come up on my phone, 'Downtown Orlando Black Lives Matter Mural defaced, Police say'


A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on June 27, 2020:

That was my point, I am away from it...or so I thought! I am at my Parents and BLM propaganda is on AMC and even on kid's programming.

We are inundated with it and people are absolutely fed up!

P.S. Weird dream! ;)

Shannon Henry from Texas on June 27, 2020:

Angie, I woke up this morning from a strange dream that involved a racist skit and a pool with green water (don't ask, I don't know). I think I've just had enough stressing over all of this crap. Someone (the government) needs to step up and get a handle on all of it. Because whether there are people who support BLM for the concept of being anti-racist and for the concept of unity or not.....there are still too many people encouraging violence. And I believe majority are not supporting that from anyone, including BLM. Anyway, sounds like we both need a vacation!

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on June 27, 2020:

I am sorry hard sun I was doing to address your concerns and instead, got aggravated and went off in another direction.

I keep waiting for a voice of reason that might get through to the 'loudest leaders', but I don't know if that person exists and if they do exist, if they could help at this point. This was all allowed to go too far, too fast!

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on June 27, 2020:

I can't tune out BLM, messages are in my news feed constantly presenting BLM as some holy, positive mission! Even watching AMC, I can't escape it. It is in our face 24-7 propoganda!?!

In the meantime, there is just as much destruction with BLM's name all over it, as Antifa!

As if we can't see BLM spray painted, drawn, inked, murialed, chalked, colored, you name it.... on private and public property; i.e. statues, monuments, buildings, businesses, vehicles....wherever there is pushover government in place! (Check out the pic at the top of this article)

I was involved in the Tea party {and although we were accused of this type of stuff all of the time!!!!!} there wasn't any evidence of it...because it NEVER happened!

These anarchists are really beginning to piss off a lot of people!

Don Shepard on June 27, 2020:

Indeed, what is enough? What is the end game? Every time I've had a reasonable discussion about BLM with a supporter, and these have mostly been with people from the local community that I at least know of, they end up breaking down and just calling me ignorant, racist, etc. when I present them with facts and a reasonable opinion. Ironic when this is what they say every right winger does..and some do, but...really? They make up flow charts to tell us why we are racist. Without even going into the legitimacy of these charts, I say that if you need a flow chart to explain why someone is racist, then maybe the finger needs to be turned around at you! My hope is that some of the most radical supporters will start to come out of the fog soon and understand they can be anti-racist without being BLM.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on June 26, 2020:

While we wait for a BLM supporter to respond KC, I think we already know the answer...it is not enough, it doesn't matter, they don't care, they are an angry mob tearing down any statue they have access to....Abolitionists and All!

KC McGee from Where I belong on June 26, 2020:

Here a question I have for those of Black Lives Matters. Is it not enough that almost 400,000 white Union Sodiers died during the Civil War to end slavery? Or the half million white Union Soldiers who where wounded and nearly lost their lives fighting the same war to end slavery?

So, I ask you BLM, Was the sacrifices of nearly a million white Union soldiers enough during the Civil War to end slavery or were their death and wounds not good enough for you?

Don Shepard on June 26, 2020:

That is insane Kyler J Falk. I work from home and they had an optional "learning" session where white people were only aloud to ask questions and we were to be "learned" by minorities. Sorry to hear that.

And they think BLM is helping race relations?

Kyler J Falk from California on June 26, 2020:

@Don: You're lucky you don't feel deeply that your work would fire you for saying all lives matter. Over here, we had to sit through an online seminar for an hour and a half where they forcibly trotted out our fellow employees, those with black skin color, to have them explain to all of us why saying all lives matter will get you fired. It is considered bigoted, racist, and contributing to an unacceptable culture to say it.

Those same employees don't believe the script they were made to read, but the incentive for participation was too good to pass up; not to mention the inter-company political boost the exposure offered. If I knew my stalkers wouldn't immediately report me, I'd expose the company for the racist trash it is.

Alas, money is more important as everything stands now, but there will be a day I let loose on this racist entity under which I toil.

Don Shepard on June 26, 2020:

"I just know what I believe, at more core and that's my compass."

There is more to be said for this than some people like to acknowledge. I think basic right from wrong comes from this "core." No "mental gymnastics" can convince me it's wrong to say all lives matter. I could go on and on about this subject, but I don't think that's needed. of course anti racist is good, but that's not BLM to me. I will say this: I did not believe that there were many liberals that truly hated America, but I've been shown otherwise recently.

I'm not sure if my work would go so far as to can me for all lives matter, but gotta follow that core either way. I like my job for the most part so I'll hang in and see how it pans out. I try to follow the golden rule as that's what I know to be right. I do think moderate Dems should be able to speak out but I don't think many of the will or the fortitude to do so.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on June 26, 2020:

Good morning hard sun, of course I remember you and many of our discussions.

I certainly hope that you don't lose your job for believing that ALL LIVES MATTER!

Perhaps you've outgrown that Company and it is time to move on!

I just know what I believe, at more core and that's my compass.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on June 26, 2020:

No Green, we cannot agree that anything about BLM is good for this Country right now. I do not believe that every Democrat or left-leaning person is okay with any of this, but they don't get a say right now! Shame on so-called Democratic leaders, they've let this lie and fester, thinking only President Trump, would be hurt by it! They do have a platform, they do have a spotlight, but not ONE will call it what it is, domestic terrorism! I will say the same about Never-Trumpers, so-called Conservatives, thinking the same, that only Trump would be hurt by it...where are they now?

So proud and pompous; embarrased by Trump's abrasiveness and how dare he come into their world and try to make things better for ALL people....shame on them!

Don Shepard on June 26, 2020:

Hi AB. You may remember that we don't often agree on much politically. However, you are correct in that the left has been radicalized. I don't think BLM is for the good of minorities, or any of us, and it has become mostly one and the same with the Democrat party. I've been called every name conceivable in efforts to twist my words into being those of a bigot because I don't support the methods of BLM. I may say this at the risk of losing my job, as the CEO advised us to "resist the urge" to say all lives matter..but hey..all lives matter. Thanks for not being intimidated.

abwilliams We can agree that the few people burning and destroying are not helping anything. I think the BLM movement is anti-racist, and I hope we can agree that that's good. I think our country is improved by protest and public action, even when I disagree with the agenda, and I bet you do too.

We disagree about some things. For example, "Democrats" or "the Left" are not monolithic. They're millions of people with a wide range thoughts and beliefs. So I don't agree with you saying they all do this or that or they all believe this or that. It's like me saying "Republicans! They're all racists who love it when cops beat people bloody! They hate nature and deny science! They hate our country and are afraid of change and the future!" Obviously (to me at least) this is not true. How could we get anywhere if I were to start spewing out nonsense like that?

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on June 25, 2020:

I am sharing this because it goes hand in hand with what I have been writing about...FREQUENTLY, for the past few years.

Check it out:


A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on June 25, 2020:

P.S. When I speak of "thugs", it is any and all that tear things down and burn things up!

It is any and all that intentionally do harm to others and target Police officers!

It is any and all that loot, steal and destroy!

It is NOT directed at those whom ATTEMPTED to peacefully assemble in protest... ONLY to be drowned out by the "THUGS"!

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on June 25, 2020:

Good morning Shannon, the thugs in the streets, unfortunately, aren't just talking louder than everyone else, that are destroying everything in their path!!! They don't care one little bit about this Country and if it was burning from one coast to the other, they'd be celebrating {before they went up in flames right along with it}

That's funny that someone thinks WE shouldn't talk about it and it will just go away... Yeah right!!!

We can see for ourselves, what NOT being the loudest voices and giving thugs their space has done thus far!

Yes I have a few questions lying in wait for GreenMind to respond to, don't know if we will hear back from him/her though?!

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on June 25, 2020:

Good morning Kyler. I am not sure why people think only blacks have been slaves in the past. I suppose it is the way it's taught, the way it is depicted in illustrations?

I am just glad that we ended here in this Country....as I stated earlier, it is an ugly, demoralizing practice.

But, it was ended here, a long, long time ago.

We cannot continue to allow anarchists, such as Antifa, Marxist organizers such as BLM, foreign influences and deep pockets, such as George Soros, etc. etc. ....... continue destroying this Country.

The President needs to do whatever he needs to do to end it. This is madness!

Shannon Henry from Texas on June 24, 2020:

Angie, I think my first comment may have gone to your spam folder, but I also want to know what GreenMind meant by so many people think that blacks don't have the same human tendencies as the rest of us. I wouldn't count anyone who thought like that as part of my life in any capacity and I don't know anyone else who would either.

Shannon Henry from Texas on June 24, 2020:

This isn't quite the same rant, Angie. Not quite what I was expecting anyway, but it goes with some things I was saying. People are taking it way too far. In fact, I think the person who commented to me saying that talking about it so much is helping to keep it going front and center. But I don't think that most people are truly interested in talking for the sake of working problems out. There are too many controlling the show by being louder than everyone else and denouncing everyone that doesn't agree with their objectives.

Kyler J Falk from California on June 24, 2020:

Concerning the slavery of my people, I come from a long line of servants and slaves who served the wealthy and had their history immortalized by those they served. Truly, a privilege to be enslaved to kinder and softer masters, but physical torture in lieu of their compliance was a regular situation. Many of them learned to write, and by extension so did their kids and so our history has been passed down through the ages.

Unfortunately, our family's history is barely anything more than that of slaves. Jewish, Native American, white Christian, and even a few African slaves worthy of note in my blood. Many people have said this can't be possible, that racism against me cannot be possible, and that my white skin makes me part of the evil here in America. The only evil I see is the evil that targets the marginalized, and that marginalized statistic of individuals is growing.

It is upon everyone to stand up for the lives of all, to show that we all matter, and to not let anyone fall by the wayside to push for a singular justice. Alas, I rant because this is an emotional topic.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on June 24, 2020:

I am sorry GreenMInd, I was at work when I read through your comment and I missed some things...that's on me!

So, third thing I'd like for you to address:

You wrote, "It's still still deep in our national DNA. We are still a deeply racist society, mainly because so many of us think of Black people as not having the exact same hopes, fears, dreams, worries, capabilities, potential, and every other human thing that we do."

Who thinks this way?

What type of people are you hanging around with?

Is this what the Left, Dems think?

Does the Democratic Party think they must take care of blacks, because they don't think blacks are capable of taking care of themselves?

Of course black people have the same hopes, fears, dreams, worries, capabilities, potential and every other human thing that we do!

You have really opened up a can of worms and I'd love to hear more from you!

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on June 24, 2020:

One more thing GreenMind, the U.S. didn't exist in the 1600's, where are you getting that information?

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on June 24, 2020:

You've made my day then! I love it when people want to learn more and don't just jump on the latest bandwagon because everyone else did.

p.s. What do you mean by "a reckoning I hope"?

GreenMind Guides from USA on June 24, 2020:

Oh okay! No I just wanted to learn more.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on June 24, 2020:

You said you "checked out" the video and I was just stating that anything I write checks out. I should not have assumed that you use a fact-checking service.

GreenMind Guides from USA on June 24, 2020:

?? what facts did I get wrong? I was saying thanks for the tip-in re Barbary coast. But okay... what are you saying here? That 100 years after the Const, slavery in the US was ended by the Civil War? No argument here.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on June 24, 2020:

Everything I've written in 150+ articles over 8 years checks out, I wouldn't include otherwise.

On July 4th, 1776, by Action of the Second Continental Congress, the Declaration of Independence was written and the Declaration was a unanimous decision of the thirteen United States of America.

On Sept. 17, 1787, All States, with the exception of Rhode Island (R.I. wasn't represented) approved the Constitution, during the Constitutional Convention.

It took us nearly 100 years, but the ugly, demoralizing practice of slavery {which has existed since the beginning of time} ended here.....with US!

That's the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

Careful where you fact check.

Always good to hear from you.

GreenMind Guides from USA on June 24, 2020:

A B Williams This is a pretty fascinating story. I did a little more searching and it checks out. Cool -- I learned something!

However I think that bringing this episode up when the context is American slavery and structural racism (which I guess is where you started with your article), is problematic.

Nothing about the Barbary coast slave trade excuses or forgives the American slave trade, or the need for White Americans to understand and own what happened.

What we're dealing with now, and why the country is facing a reckoning (I hope), is the result of the myths, junk science, lies, reflexes and etc that White people created about Black people in order to justify slavery in the US starting in the 1600's. It's still still deep in our national DNA. We are still a deeply racist society, mainly because so many of us think of Black people as not having the exact same hopes, fears, dreams, worries, capabilities, potential, and every other human thing that we do.

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on June 24, 2020:

I am anxious to hear from Kyler on the question posed, but, while researching for this article, I came across this video. Didn't seem appropriate to share it with this particular article, but I did save it. Seems apropos now.


GreenMind Guides from USA on June 24, 2020:

Hi Kyler -- I'm curious -- what do you mean by "the slavery of my people"?

A B Williams (author) from Central Florida on June 24, 2020:

Hi Kyler,

I share in your disgust and frustration.

How do we get through to people?

Is it too late?

I too will go down fighting, but I don't want it to come to that!

I am just one person, I have had a good life, if it comes to the point, that I am singled out, because I've spoken out against these Marxists, so be it.

I want my grandchildren to have a chance in this amazing Country which has provided freedom and vast opportunity to multiple generations...of ALL PEOPLE!

Kyler J Falk from California on June 24, 2020:

It is truly an unfortunate situation here in America, and compounded by the way I know kids are being taught to hate themselves for their race in school. This infiltration of poisonous ideals isn't just at the political and social levels, it is at the education level; the level where our most vulnerable are.

Growing up, school didn't discuss the slavery of my people, we discussed how my skin color made me a responsible piece of slavery and racism. We didn't get taught how to take part in society as a force for change, we were taught to listen to those who spouted the most radical ideals and cried the loudest. The worst part was being white in all this, because if you spoke out about the untruths they taught then you were laughed at, disregarded and silenced, and at worst you were threatened with punishment ranging from detention to expulsion.

At this point, all I can say is that America has reached a crossroads and we can all fight against evil or succumb to equality in slavery to a tyrannical system. I'll be going down fighting.
