They Must Find Undeniable Comfort In President Trump

It provides this awkward solace they crave by way of sustaining what waning entitlement and privilege whiteness offers

I have been reading alot about the hidden tensions coming out of the Republican Party as it tries to justify, defend, and even apologize for their White House leader’s missteps and mishandlings thus far. It has been assauged, glossed over or made to be forgotten because there is this spoken or unspoken awkward comfort that they can all share or chuckle about under Trump’s presidency. No matter what stupid things he says or how ill-advised and stupid his policies are, or even in how stupid he sounds, they can find comfort in the underlying premise of delusional entitlement and unearned privilege afforded by whiteness — his and theirs.

…Trump supporters who have been convinced by conservative media pundits like Fox News contributor , who during an April 13 interview on Fox, argued that the virus is actually less deadly than the seasonal flu and that “this was not and is not a pandemic.” —

After reading about the impending political implosions that have only accumulated since Trump’s inauguration it seems we have reached a climactic hum during the covid 19 pandemic. The brazen privilege and entitlement of anti-lockdown protests on display while 50,000 and counting in the U.S. (unofficially, the number is expected to be much more) have died from the virus, reinforces the fact that ignorance is very difficult to crack, especially when it has and is still being incentivized via political, social and capital gains.

The steps taken to voice, print, or sing about the injustice imposed by a corrupt collective has been effective — to a point. The steps taken with civil rights protest, defiance, and with mixed results — instances of retaliation, has also contributed some effectivity in scope and degree towards a resistance to the vanity and insanity of this phenomena. Utilizing our inalienable right, whether it be: by taking a legal stand; by popular demand; by being undaunted; or by being overly credentialed and overqualified, has also contributed to severely weakening the racial hierarchy that posits them on top.

Nonetheless, what we need in order to galvanize under, and implore more of, to greater degree and scope is the actual denouncing and or stripping away of this psuedo-profound privilege and entitlement that they have institutionalized with all its ignorance and its anti-blackness. We need to continue to delegitimize it to a point that it becomes unlawful to start with and not be corrupted by it to advance wayward individualism or become acculturated by awkward but lucrative application to any opportunistic devices of unfettered capitalism.

We need to debunk and dismiss the very idea of whiteness as a standard infinite source of power and influence, much less a race or even a plausible societal group, because it really just isn’t.

Being white is the default identity in America. Whiteness is our cultural tapestry. It’s America’s norm, against which all others are measured, and there is a special kind of security that comes along with being the norm. So when you suddenly do not have free rein to go about your business unchecked, it can feel like a massive threat. And in turn, protesters have taken to the streets to fight to keep that security. That feeling of “oppression” these white protesters have voiced is the residual effect of living in a country that has been shaped to cater to their racial majority status, and consequently, their perceived loss of power and privilege. —

White persons feeling oppressed in this country are experiencing persecutory delusions.

It is a concept that has no basis. A construct that is faulty and absurd. A belief that is easily challengeable and can be characterized as simply a virally sick and contagious mental representation of inhumanity.

Mental representation is the mental imagery of things that are not actually present to the senses. —

This mental representation is informed by propositional attitudes (desires and beliefs that are insensitive to empiricism) that are intentional in the distortion of reality such that it becomes semantically agreeable or comforting and therefore commonsensical to ones benefit at the other’s expense, when in fact it is pseudo profound, contradictory, filled with dissonance, and fallaciously contrived.

The mental representation of white supremacy or its imagery is repetitive and caricatured out in film, in business, and in institutions to great effect and affect as this narrow mental content that is devoid of their true environment —which actually is shared and coordinated by the interdependence of a diaspora of humans that contribute and participate in an evolutionary progress of humanity.

The narrow mental content of leaderships and its mental representation in the U.S. is primarily entitled and privileged to white males, which brings us to Donald Trump.

nymag:

There is a contingent of whites who can’t bring themselves to acknowledge that Donald Trump is unfit to be president and has thoroughly proven himself to be incompetent for the task, simply because of the underlying premise of his remarkable anti-black and anti-brown rhetoric that is comforting to them and socially distances them in terms of class, race and wealth from their fellow Americans. The consequential self-destructive qualities to a nation of immigrants can be summed up as no pain no gain to them. The idea of unearned privilege and entitlement seems more important to them than the possibility of dying from covid 19. The great lengths this collective would go to to uphold the delusion of white supremacy has no bounds.

The fact that history serves as substantial evidence, and our present-day indicates the persistence of this ongoing criminal enterprise and conduct is hard to ignore, unless you are stricken with motivated ignorance, or its stupidity rather.

We should avoid at all costs playing their game. It is what got us into this race-based mess to begin with.

There is no bigger example today than the President of The United States Donald J. Trump, which emphatically is an indication that acknowledges their inconvenient truth, and the observant empiricism of fact, that white people are not and should not be privileged in any way shape or form, nor should they be so entitled to simply lead.

It appears the more that I write the better I perceive.
