How does this constitute pain? Attacking American Democracy from SOME of our Deaf neighbours up North (Canada) is showing ignorance as the political tensions gearing up into the presidential election in 59 days from now on, specifically on November 3rd, 2020, I’ve been studying hate crimes since 2007, communicating with a hate crime expert who taught me everything. Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) writes last March 2020:
“The number of white nationalist groups identified by the SPLC rose for the second straight year, a 55 percent increase since 2017, when Donald Trump’s campaign energized white nationalists who saw him as an avatar of their grievances and their anxiety over the country’s demographic changes.
White nationalism poses a serious threat to national security and pluralistic democracy. It’s a virulent and profoundly authoritarian ideology that infects our political system with hate, fear, and resentment.”
Those Deaf Canadians who are living in Canada are not even full-fledged Americans when they think they know it all about American democracy, they are supporting Trump’s Fascism, raising the alarm of threatening the United States Constitution should not be a norm. Some Deaf Canadians are also bystanders to the growing dangers of Fascism, if they are, then they are supporting the Fascism in Canada’s future as well, too.
Abraham Lincoln: “Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves.”
Deaf Americans must stand strong and work diligently to defend the constitutional rights, and to ensure the reason, the First Amendment must prevail for once and all. It cannot undo the mental suffering, erase false hope, that Donald Trump encourages violence to uproot the hatred by calling out for white supremacy, getting past their attitudes, and tearing the fabric of America and that is precisely where we find ourselves now. Hate is built on the foundations of America. We must continue to defeat hate and it begins with us.
We must support the right to live free of racism, fascism, tyranny, and white supremacy. We exist to give our eyes for the oppressed and marginalized as well as America. We believe in democracy that is seen by truth and justice.
White supremacy is an serious examination of the physical, social, mental, and psychological warfare that isolated and paralyzed America. Hate, systematic racism, more to the list by those survivors who have to deal with their horrific stories to self-preserve. This hatred creates a dissociative state and fragments their sense of self-identity.
For example, using “100 Toros” from Spain and letting them roaming through the American streets, and gore peaceful protesters up their neck or throat, it is a form of violence, is it an act of murder to oblige Trump? That reminds me of a quote years ago written by Thomas Merton, in his book, Conjectures of a Guilty Bystander:
“There is a pervasive form of contemporary violence to which the idealist most easily succumbs: activism and overwork. The truth and pressure of modern life are a form, perhaps the most common form, of its innate violence. To allow oneself to be carried away by a multitude of conflicting concerns, to surrender to too many demands, to commit oneself too many projects, to want to help everyone in everything, is to succumb to violence. The frenzy of our activism neutralizes our work for peace. It destroys our own inner capacity for peace. It destroys the fruitfulness of our own work; because it kills the root of inner wisdom which makes work fruitful.”
History might imply that Civil War II is in the picture, when I visited Heather Heyer where she was murdered by a white supremacist in Charlottesville, Virginia, it might mark the start in Trump’s America. Trump is willing to go that far just to get re-elected, he even said in one of his rallies, “I am a white nationalist”—inciting hate in America, and that means some Deaf Canadians are also fraternized with white supremacy, and supporting the status quo policing, and that is what white supremacy looks like.
A Trump-inspired white vigilante and the propaganda network of the Trump party is perpetuating hate, we will end Trump’s party legally and peacefully, and Trump cannot escape history, the Constitution, or the will of the American people.
We need to be aware of hatred: shame, isolation, exposure to hate itself, and inability to meet one’s economic needs, and it is sad to see some Deaf Canadians supporting the power dynamics of hatred, if not, bloody violence, they are also enablers of dismantling of the web of denial that dehumanizes American democracy, and it makes perfect sense to fund how to stand up against the hatred and white supremacy. Defund the hate!
The Deaf community between Canada and the United States of America has been drawn. Justice will prevail, and the soul of America, we will win and sweep denazification in Trump’s America and prevent a constitutional crisis.
Fascism, both explicit and systemic is the storm that is attempting to sweep over America within space, at the center of the eye storm, and the world is watching us. Not only that, but we must also stop tyranny, too. On November 3rd, 2020: Election. Without question, it is the most important election in American history. We must lift our heads, raise our fists, and vote! We must!
