— Editorial by Bass Manski —
A couple of people dear to me said my posts on Charlottesville were anti-Semitic and pro-Nazi. Besides being the furthest thing from the truth, I am disappointed that as a writer I failed to make my point. I am also hurt, because these folks have known me for years outside of FB.
When I analyze a “news” event, I try to look beyond the quagmire of emotional trigger-points that so many of us get stuck in, often as intended by the perpetrator of the event. In a broader sense, many people interpret the chronology of history in general as “shit happens”. I tend to view it as powerful sociopaths engineering events and playing God.
Fringe-groups like the KKK, Black Panthers, Farrakhan’s Nation of Islam, and others preach hatred and violence. They are detestable and dangerous, but in the big picture I don’t see them as near-term threats capable of overthrowing the Republic of the United States.
That said, I do see a viable and immediate internal threat to our Republic; the result of years of planning and BILLIONS upon billions of dollars in funding. There is a very evil underbelly to this oncoming assault, including a culture-shift to “win at any cost” and “if you don’t like the message, kill the messenger.” Hence, the unabating character assassination and obstruction of President Trump; perhaps the only person powerful enough to expose and prosecute this sedition.
This orchestrated overthrow is about to crash head on into millions of Americans who still believe in doing the right thing and will protect their Republic at any cost. Me and my posts, I’m just the guy yelling that a train is coming, so get off the tracks! Most don’t listen or would rather not know. Plus, I could be totally wrong, but I’ve yet to find another scenario that connects these crazy events in such an un-crazy way.
And finally, YES, Nazis suck! During our lives, we’ve all heard different tales of cruelty both to people and to animals. Many disturbed me for weeks, and I wished I could go back and unhear them. One of them was in a documentary on the concentration camps as told by a camp survivor. Dr. Josef Mengele took two young twin-girls from their barracks to his operating table, where he butchered them and then sewed the two of them together to see if they could share internal organs. The children were returned to their bunk where they were heard whimpering as the stench of gangrene filled the air and they slowly, painfully died. No, I don’t support Nazis.
