One of the major themes of Bidens Inaugural address was, basically, a recognition of the Dangers of "White Supremacists" and "Domestic Terrorists" , and, that these groups must be overcome and defeated for the sake of the country. This disturbed me immesely and here's why:
1) First of all, who are the domestic terrorists? MAGA? The White Supremacists (which includes who?)? Conservatives? Except for the white supremacists, I sure hope not!!!
Also, Im hoping that the "list" of domestic terrorists that he's targeting will include ANTIFA/BLM dont you?? Sadly, I doubt that they make the list !! (though, I hope I'm wrong about that)
2) Who are these supposed "White
Supremacists" and where are they??Furthermore, How numerous are they in America today? I dont know about you guys and maybe this sounds naive, but, I dont know any white supremacists myself, dont know anyone who has have ever met one, so, where all they all? Do I have to go out to Idaho to meet one??
To be blunt, this a load of crap!! That doesnt mean there are , literally, NO white supremacists in this country mind you, but, are they really that big of a threat to be discussed so prominently in the Presidents Inaugural address? Hardly
It is my belief that each "side" of the political landscape in America today has their own perceived "Boogyman" who, in their view, is the paragon of evil. For the right, it is often the "Communists" or "Socialists" that are the existential threat and, for the left, its the Racist "White Supremacists". To be honest, I think that BOTH sides exaggerate these perceived threats and use it to their political advantage( though I do believe that there are far more real true Communists/Socialists out there than there are White Supremacists!!lol) , simply due to the fact that it is far easier to control groups of people when they are afraid of something. It stirs them up and keeps them inline, keeps them voting for your side, your policies , etc.
3)What will be the strategy for combatting these threats? Silencing them on social media? Re-education camps? War? (Sure Hope not!!)
What do you think?
