NEO: Will COVID Crack America’s Racist Egg?

In early May 2020, a former police officer living in Brunswick, Georgia, a rural town just north of the Florida state line, aided by his son, ambushed and killed a 25-year-old African American jogger.

This incident isn’t unique, as we will see, but it tells a different story now than it would have at other times in America’s violent history.

The weeks of lockdown across America, that and not just the mass deaths but the orchestrated campaign of wild conspiracy theories coming out of the failed and disgraced Trump White House, has led to what can only be described as a “melt down.”

Americans are buying guns in droves but these aren’t the “normal” American gun owners with their penchant for right wing politics and bar stool bluster. Americans who never bought guns are afraid, not of their government, and nobody in America trusts the government, but of the possibility of violent unrest.

The most violent and ignorant of Americans are and always have been the best armed. Since 9/11, they have also been the best organized with millions, even billions, spent building a “Disneyland of the paranoids,” intended to not just radicalize but militarize and criminalize as well.

Whatever the source of COVID 19 will turn out to be, American labs, Chinese labs or a natural pathogen, the social destruction it has left in its path clearly serves the 1%’ers who dominate America.

Of the tools they have at their disposal, the most effective and most reliable is race hatred.

While many put their lives on the line, while many, even millions, are rising to meet the challenges, millions of others, of every race and ethnicity, not just the radicalized white underclass, are moving toward violent confrontation. This confrontation won’t be with police or government officials, though Trump has been working to orchestrate exactly that, it will be a race war, black against white and brown, a race war that may well ignite long forgotten hatreds against Jews, Asians and even Native Americans.

Nothing is reported of this but those living in America see it every day, name calling, shoving matches, cars and trucks festooned with Nazi or Confederate symbols and occupants better armed than most nations’ military.

America has become a racial tinderbox, waiting only for a spark to ignite something every American has always feared, that dark subtext of seething bigotry that defines the religious, social and political lives of millions of Americans.

You see, in a nation that has centralized wealth more than any other, where opportunity for education and advancement is closed off in ways no European could imagine, the sinister beliefs of the uncivilized past deepen, they ripen, they bloom and, under America’s current political climate, thay are ready to flower.

COVID 19 may well provide that spark.

Were it not for the dramatic video, this one attack, one chosen at random, would not be remarkable.

The Brunswick killing hit a chord. Perhaps it was the curious similarity between them and the armed lockdown demonstrators or, perhaps, the American mercenaries recently captured in Venezuela.

The attack was, as is now so often the case, recorded and posted on Twitter. Prior to a public outcry at perhaps one of the most brutal and vicious killings witnessed in recent years, local officials had decided to hide the incident and allow the killers to go free.

The killers were white, the victim was black, and the region is a hotbed of Trump support. Not so many years ago, within the lifetime of many who still walk the earth, it was considered legal and even “reasonable” to kidnap and lynch African American men in Brunswick, Georgia and in every other region of America’s South.

Many, very many, want to see those times again and are egged on by Qanon and other Trump hoaxes and, worse still, the steady drumming of fear and hate they receive from “snake oil” religious leaders, a veritable army of scamsters and propagandists who prey on the weak minded. Brutal crimes against minorities, typically by police, are always sanctified in the pulpit.

From the Guardian:

“A prosecutor in Georgia said he would ask a grand jury to decide if charges should be filed against a white former law enforcement officer and his son over the fatal shooting of an unarmed young black man as he ran through a small town.

The shooting of 25-year-old Ahmaud Arbery outside Brunswick, Georgia, in February was captured on videotape and posted on social media on Tuesday, stirring outrage over the reluctance of prosecutors to file charges against Gregory McMichael and his son, Travis.

The video footage, which was taken by an unidentified witness in another car, shows Arbery jogging down a narrow two-lane road and around a white pickup truck stopped in the right lane, its driver’s door open.

As Arbery crosses back in front of the truck a gunshot is fired. Arbery is then seen struggling with a man holding a long gun as a second man stands in the bed of the truck brandishing a revolver. Two more shots are heard before Arbery stumbles and falls face-down on to the asphalt.

The graphic footage has prompted an outcry and demands for justice; the activist Shaun King posted the video on Twitter, describing it as “one of the worst things I’ve seen in my entire life”.

According to a police report obtained by the New York Times, Gregory McMichael, a former police officer and district attorney’s investigator, told investigators the incident began when he spotted Arbery from his front yard “hauling ass” down the street.”

Arbery, who was jogging, was murdered both out of historical racism but also because of a breakdown in society brought on by the COVID extinction event and the hateful rhetoric of the American president that has empowered criminal elements.

Tens of thousands were murdered for alleged crimes, but more often for political or social activism in what was one of many very real American holocausts.

Across the nation a parallel war was going on against America’s native population, which at one time had numbered over 100 million at the beginning of the 16th century. By the beginning of the 20th only 2 million remained.

This genocide is the backbone of America’s heritage, perhaps the greatest slaughter in human history.

The root of America’s two-party system originated after the Civil War in the mid-nineteenth century. Party names and platforms overtly change but, behind the scenes, there is one issue that is in the forefront in every election or in times of national emergency and that is racial or ethnic strife.

Trump’s near dictatorial rule has been dependent on purposefully Hitleresque policies, attacking the educated and successful and seeking to unite “lumpenproletariat,” the uneducated and fearful, those who normally have no interest in politics unless violence and hatred are instilled into the mix. This has been the “Trump base,” those left behind by the modern world, the intellectually crippled, the angry but, as stated, mostly the frightened.

To those who profit from pain, the pandemic has been a gift from the gods.

The Pandemic of 2020, assuming there will be others, something most experts agree upon, has unveiled deep flaws in American society. The “land of the free and the home of the brave” now seems to be anything but.

Race war isn’t the only distraction being orchestrated, as events unfolded in a bizarre May 2020 plot against Venezuela.

While the Trump regime in Washington sends armed thugs to kidnap or kill President Maduro in Caracas it also sends the same ilk, slovenly, overweight, uneducated and mentally unstable, as armed thugs to threaten domestic political opponents such as Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer.

Conclusion

While Trump and his Deep State backers, billionaires Betsy DeVos, Jeffrey Epstein (now deceased) and Adolf Coors, among so many others, believe social unrest will achieve their dark political goals and that COVID 19 is a “golden opportunity,” their dreams of empire may well come crashing down on them.

Perhaps the ignorant and slovenly can rise up and crush the sad remains of Western culture as it exists in the United States and the dreamed of society of slavery and tyranny can be brought into fruition as outlined in the Necon manifestos of the pre-9/11 era.

On the other hand, the belief held by those who seek to dominate, that all Americans are little more than sheep, may well prove wrong and meet their fate at the end of a rope.

This is certain to happen. The only question is whether it will be this pandemic or the next.

  1. They assaulted him with guns, assault with a deadly weapon, second degree assault. During that second degree assault he was killed, which is murder. I believe in any state of the union if someone is killed in the commission of a crime against them it is murder plain and simple! If they planed the assault which they surely did, it is first degree murder. Now in Georgia I think they still fry people in the electric chair, we’ll be watching…
    I think we are just arguing with Yahoos that think it is okay to shoot Black people…

  2. The “men” have zero cause to point weapons. There is no “both sides”. Arbery made a decision under threat and duress by hostile assailants in the middle of a public road. Clear self defense.
    There was no burglary in connection with this incident.

  3. How many shekels did they pay you to post that pile of shite?

    Are you even aware that only a minority of white Americans are Anglo-Saxon?

    It is the Zionist Jews who promote inter-race hatred, hey are also the ones responsible for the anti-vaxx conspiracy fraud, clearly they have paid you to do their job for them.

    The Bolsheviks were Zionist Jews in disguise.

    OMG, you really are very bad at this and make it far, far too easy to debunk your bullshit.

  4. Every builder knows once framing is up, people are attracted and neighbors often ogle the project 5 minutes after the trucks are gone. Cats too. They can’t resist. There are two philosophies , leave the doors and windows open and let them, secure the dangerous stuff to prevent accidents, or take 2 minutes and plywood or tyvek the 1st floor openings. it’s builders choice. The decision to invite, is to satiate the guaranteed curiosity. Leaving it open and presenting a clean site for oglers is a good way to get customers and maintain reputation. Common in suburbs. If there had been even a hint of burglary, plywood takes 2 minutes. Instead, openings were left, camera installed, job site presentable, nothing to take left on site. It’s an avenue of solicitation of work, which is nearly always word of mouth.
    The guy was an ex cop. A near certainty is unexplained deaths are found in his and others record. This was likely a factor in the decision to not charge originally. They were protecting the department. Standing their ground, which is more than shaky. This case is about more than one incident.

  5. That’s a YUUGE Catch 22 for Black men.

    And being armed never stopped a bullet. Which is why police, gang members, and Americans in general are OPPOSITE of the safest people in the world.

    GunNuts never admit this truism for some reason, (hmm?…) but vests are a far better self defense tool than guns, especially when ALONE, with no HEADS UP (like others being shot first, armed or not).

    • Oops!

      That was a response to Mike’s comment at bottom.

      Also…

      Choose your scenario, WITHOUT being warned by the “bad guy with a gun”, where you’d take a gun over a vest.

      A dense forest, with the bad guy very far away, LOL!?

  6. 💯!!! Great article Gordy.

    Especially American Mammon worship/service (wealth concentration) and Native Americans being 2% population in their homeland – most of a continent: probably unprecedented in human history, yes.

  7. It’s a bad idea for a black guy to hitting a white guy with a rifle in his hands.
    The black guy was either drugged or mentally unstable.
    But I wouldn’t like it if a black guy with a gun wanted to arrest me, either.
    But I wouldn’t attack an armed man, that’s for sure.
    There’s nothing wrong with my head ))

  8. Here in Baltimore you can experience extreme black hatred towards whites. There is no other way to explain it. Of course as the income level elevates so does the ethnic tolerance. Middle income blacks avoid the thuggery as if it were the plague.

  9. Edward Dodge: Thank you for the most ignorant, bigoted, moronic comment that I have seen here in some time. Only an idiot would argue semantics over genocide. I live in an area where I view the results every day.(Think Custer) Slugs like you can’t imagine the trap that these people exist in. Virtue signaling?, a tired phrase used by half wits with nothing to say.

  10. Maybe so Bernie, I recently spent a month in Waycross, the epitome of backwoods southern Georgia. Nice folks but I am not Black so I was allowed to eat in the White establishments. I always say taking a shotgun away from a man is a fool’s errand. So maybe it just becomes a question of why two armed men were confronting an unarmed one out jogging. In NY and correct me if I’m wrong every other civilized place in the world you go to jail for that for a very long time…

  11. 20 years as an investigator for the district attorney and stupid enough to get into what is now multiple crimes. As there was no witnessed crime, no citizens arrest, with no arrest powers, this is a homicide tied to a hate crime, an armed assault, conspiracy with special circumstances, meaning execution.

  12. Current republicans are domestic enemies.

    Always remember that the first is always backed by that second.

    This is going to come to a head eventually….

  13. “America’s native population, which at one time had numbered over 100 million at the beginning of the 16th century. By the beginning of the 20th only 2 million remained.
    This genocide is the backbone of America’s heritage, perhaps the greatest slaughter in human history.”

    One must assume that this is what the Trumplodytes mean when they say make America great again…

    • “This genocide is the backbone of America’s heritage, perhaps the greatest slaughter in human history.”
      That backbone of genocide played no less a role in the founding of Mexico or Canada, I’m sure, and probably every current nation-state. I don’t like the word “indigenous”. Go back far enough and there’s no such thing. It’s nothing but a politically fashionable construct by people virtue-signaling their moral sanctimony.

    • Everything Trumptards* demonize, America had “#WhenAmericaWasGreat”!

      #OpenBorders, (which didn’t close for the “Spanish Flu”) noncitizen voting (ended in 1996 by… “Liberal Clinton!) higher tax rates…

      The only thing left is racism. That’s what MAGA means.

      * Pronounced “turd” like dotard.

    • The epicenter on the Navajo res, was a christian church, that res now has the highest rate of infection in the country per capita. The Oglala Sioux closed the roads because they knew purposeful spreading would be one of the first things deployed. The convert or die campaign by the church is active to this day. quite active.

  14. American is a country born and bred on the blood of innocent people and every year we must sacrifice additional innocent people for our blood lust!
    Between 8 and 12 million indigenous people were slaughtered in this county but yet we have more monuments for the holocaust than we do for the indigenous americans who were here long before our whites cannibalized asses came here!

    • It’s not my business to judge, but yes. You are right. The same was in Australia.

  15. G,
    The murder actually occurred on February 23,2020. The DA Jackie Johnson apparently blocked their arrest. And now she’s claiming she didnt block the arrest. Maybe every single black person in this country should go and apply for legal conceal and carry license!
