The militant blacks, who definitely got in on the fucking of white hippie gals, weren't hate-mongers, but they seethed with anger at the police, the lack of opportunity and good jobs and being passed over by whites for jobs, the fact that an inordinate amount of black kids were getting drafted out of big city ghettos and the deep south and turned into cannon fodder in Vietnam while rich white industrialists and munition manufacturers got rich. They were, as a group, much more justified in their angry protests, but unlike the white kids, they had neither the money or the means to resist the draft or the war or a move to Canada. They were, as always, shafted by the system, their lives deemed second-hand in the big plan to achieve the Norman Rockwell vision of the American Dream.
I remember taking place in a protest in 1969 (I was a veteran) at San Francisco state, where the protesters were baited into a frenzy by future senator S.I. Hayakawa and then, on cue, pummeled by the police in full combat regalia. At the time, as an ex sprinter, I managed to outrun the bastards before they beat me with batons. Looking back, there was none of the snarling ugliness in the faces of those protesters, only bitter outrage and anger at not being taken seriously, at being treated like adolescents and troublemakers and anarchists when every one of their causes and demands were justified and cogent, especially among the blacks who demanded ethnic studies at California state colleges.
The white plug-ugly haters at these latest rallies are there for no other purpose but to back the racism Trump spouted during his campaign for President and vent this hatred at anybody who disagrees with his policies and despises what they stand for, as well as the lies and vile invective he spews and tweets on a daily basis.
Seldom has such ghastly, ugly, demented viciousness been unleashed. These thugs on the fringes of the far right reek of the same mentality as the gestapo in Germany that goose-stepped a country into the most tragic genocide in the history of civilization and possibly are so collectively ignorant they have never read a history book, only the pamphlets for the internet and written and spouted on TV and radio by white supremacist pundits and organizers.
Just what is their mission? That they loathe those pussies who want to halt pollution and save the planet? That they would like to clout the living hell out of these humanitarians who want to pass some sort of gun reform so people don't slaughter each other? That they would like to persecute or jail people who are not white and to the right? That they would like to run out all immigrants and minorities back to where they came from and while at it bomb the hell out of those places? That women should be distilleries of reproduction and chattels to dominant blowhards? That gays hide in closets and get rounded up in their watering holes and hangouts and jailed, or, better yet, beaten?
Unlike most groups that run rallies and protests, their agenda is strictly blind nationalism and intolerance of anybody or anything that does not mirror themselves.
They have nothing to bitch about and have not the slightest clue as to what any amendment defending their right to free speech is. They are not oppressed, but in fact are blessed beyond all comprehension compared to most people of this world because they were born white in America! What they are is a mindless mob of carnivorous hubris and testosterone protesting against those protesting Trump's racist campaign promises and presidential policies that derail America and send it into a maelstrom threatening to turn world order into catastrophic upheaval.
Lastly, they are enthralled by a demagogue who refuses to refute their terrifying evil and follow him as obedient lemmings.
