This song has been running through my head a lot lately. This morning it struck me. I've been acting just like the misguided people in the song.
I'm not a Southerner and most certainly not a white supremacist, but I admit I've been a bit put out about a bunch of "politically correct" Soros-backed self-righteous outsiders shouting to pull down monuments to people's great grandfathers (many times removed) who fought in a war that was as much about state's rights as anything else, or at the very least to protect their own version of "the village green," a cause which might be considered no less noble than the right for Halliburton to make money in Iraq.
As Scott Creighton points out in this video, slavery still exists in this country and no one's doing a damn thing about it. Think of all the prisons that break up families and take good jobs away from "law-abiding citizens." They're packed with people of color whose only crime was possession of something the Deep State has been selling them for years. Then there's the sex slaves I've seen so much evidence of in San Francisco. That's real slavery, folks. Who's making money off that shit?
If you want to know who the real white supremacist racist fascists are, read this article: The story of Charlottesville was written in blood in the Ukraine.
So, what is the answer? To march around with pipes and hoods and torches fighting each other while the real fascists sit back and laugh in their halls of power, or refuse to play the game?
God/the universe is about to make a sea change on this planet. It will happen no matter what we do. I encountered this quote from Les Visible's Smoking Mirrors website yesterday. It gave me a lot of hope. It's from Romans 8:28 -- "All things work together to the good of those who love God." Sometimes you've got to let go and let the changes happen. I think the most important line in this song is the last one in the chorus, and it's got a deeper meaning than first appears: "What more can we do?"
