Random Thoughts On The World Part 2: The Alt Right, Terrorism and White Supremacy

Back when I was in a movement conservatism, I met a few people who gave off a warning of the Alt Right. I wrote a few articles trying to warn of it and people told me I was crazy. At the time I tried writing about it, a man was arrested near Spokane with enough explosives to cause serious destruction during a Martin Luther King Day celebration. That along with other factors made me essentially throw in the towel. It seemed like no one cared to heed warnings.

Francis in the Missionary Position

There was a lot of hype about Pope Francis, all of which suddenly and abruptly dropped off. He came on to the scene speaking about income inequality, an issue largely neglected before the so called "populist revolution" broke out, and promised to vindicate the legacy of Oscar Romero and others who fought for equity. People like Bill Maher bought the hype of the new tone, saying he thought Francis was really "an atheist" when he was really fully prepared to protect the institution he spent his whole life in.

A Flashback To Nixon

Dag readers no doubt heard about Trump's offensive comments toward female Democratic congresswomen. I thought it'd be prescient to remember when a similar man was in the White House (Nixon even personally told Trump once that he would "make a great president"). Just imagine if he had had a Twitter account:

Mad Magazine Is Over

Dude, Mad Magazine is over. Maybe Pete Buttigieg made a good move in saying Donald Trump's nickname for him ("Alfred E. Neuman") was outdated.

TRUMP'S CYNICAL BUILD UP OF TENSION PART 2: MEXICO COOPERATES

When a leftist president was elected in Mexico, one who had attempted to win office but been passed over in favor of more centrist candidates, one might think that would mean confrontation between Mexico and America's president, who opened his campaign by saying Mexico was sending "drugs," "crime," and rapists." Apparently not:

Trump's Cynical Build Up Of Tension

There's a whole lot of jubilation out there that Donald Trump cut short a military operation that could have started a catastrophic war with Iran. Iran is a massive country with a population of 81.16 million. It is at the nexus of America's tension in the Middle East, from the implementation of the Shah to the revolution during Carter's administration to the Iran-Iraq war and then the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq. It is no mistake that so much blood and treasure was spent occupying two countries directly bordering Iran. Iran has ties with most of the world, located as it is at the heart of the nexus between Central and South Asia, the Middle East and Africa. It's an ancient and impressive civilization. Everyone seems to get this ... now.

Reparations Should Be Done Right

We should have slavery reparations, not just as reparations for slavery itself but also for the legacy of lynching, mass incarceration, and housing and workplace discrimination, which at its height, went to a level that crossed in to urban planning and design (Dan Crenshaw's congressional district geographically cuts out the predominantly African American area of Houston, Texas).
