No, they embrace war and violence as cleansing and even a holy deed, especially if you can spin it through the Just War theory.
And that what they want is to get rid of anyone who is not like them. They want an ethnically cleansed country, or at least one where only certain people have civil rights and the rest of us accept our second class citizenship.
They won the peace, which gave them another century of white supremacy.
Let’s hope that works in our favor, especially now that we can expect a spike in cases where ever we saw uprisings.
I think that’s because you’re not an asshole? But it depends on who you read. History of war and politics are written from a much more human perspective and even our popular histories tell those stories in a much more nuanced way since Vietnam. But if you’re right wing, you’re not reading those histories or watching those movies that are more humanistic, you’re reading classics on war and politics (which is war by other means) that reinforce you’re world view of what you think war is about, which is glory, not pain and destruction. Those histories are still being written as if wars do not destroy people and communities.
Yes, because human-centered history is marxist and politically charged in their view.
I don’t know what Kemp would do. He’s shown a willingness to buck Trump, and he knows he needs ATL in the state, as we’re one of the major economic engines of the state economy (along with the southern farming region that has yet to recover thanks to Trump’s policies). He ran to the far right, but he’s governing not far from where he predecessor did, who was pro-business, but not out on the fringes. However, he’s also tried some power grabs (the shit with two seats on the State Supreme court, trying to take control of the airport, etc), though, so it’s a toss up if he’d accept troops. If he did, the city would be fucked.
