Dystopia

Woody Guthrie 2I am completely sickened by what happened last night and today in Charlottesville. I still can’t believe that I saw images of white supremacists walking down the street, fully embracing Hitler and Nazism, chanting things like “Russia Is Our Friend” and “Blood and Soil.” These men weren’t even trying to hide themselves.

What the fuck?

And then a car plows into a crowd of protesters, killing one. If this isn’t terrorism, I don’t know what is.

I am still thinking about the White Supremacist that murdered two people on the Portland MAX a few months ago, during the rush hour commute, in broad daylight.

What the fuck.

I just finished watching television series version of The Handmaid’s Tale. As I watched it I felt this really odd feeling when they flashed back to the scenes that took place before the dystopia started. It is supposed to be present day America. Watching it was creepy because it feels like we are living in this kind of world right now. The beginning stages of a dystopia. And it scares the hell out of me.

But fuck that. I am not going to let fear stop me from standing up for what is right.

Fuck Nazis. And fuck fascism.

And fuck Richard Spencer.

  1. This stuff has lurked beneath the surface of our society forever. As the middle class has disappeared and the lower classes have grown, they were waiting for some signal that they could come out into the light. Sadly, that signal was the election of our President.
