We Need To Defeat the White Supremacy Virus

Thom plus logo From the first colonization of North America, guns have been the principle instrument to enforce white supremacy. This racialized violence isn't new. From the Slave Patrols of the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries to the reincarnation of the Klan after the movie Birth Of A Nation came out early in the 20th century, to the Turner Diaries novel animating an entire new generation of white racist terrorists, The economic and political undercurrent of American culture and politics has always been one of white supremacy. It is not only rising in America right now, but in Europe and Australia as well.

Until this poisonous thought virus is defeated, it will continue to function like a cancer in our society. We need to make it as much a criminal act to advocate white supremacy as it is to advocate the cause of ISIS and Al Qaeda. Reasonable gun control, like regulating guns the way we do cars, is also an important first step."

Some very wealthy people helped put Donald Trump in office, and have continued to subsidize the Trump presidency and those Republicans who enable it.

"If you wonder why and when giant corporations got the power to reign supreme over us, here’s the story."

From Cracking the Code:
"No one communicates more thoughtfully or effectively on the radio airwaves than Thom Hartmann. He gets inside the arguments and helps people to think them through—to understand how to respond when they’re talking about public issues with coworkers, neighbors, and friends. This book explores some of the key perspectives behind his approach, teaching us not just how to find the facts, but to talk about what they mean in a way that people will hear."

From Cracking the Code:
"Thom Hartmann ought to be bronzed. His new book sets off from the same high plane as the last and offers explicit tools and how-to advice that will allow you to see, hear, and feel propaganda when it's directed at you and use the same techniques to refute it. His book would make a deaf-mute a better communicator. I want him on my reading table every day, and if you try one of his books, so will you."
