Well, the news of today is that a hispanic-looking man in San Antonio assaulted a group of teenage Americans because one of them was wearing a hat with a slogan that the hispanic-looking man did not like. Not only did the hispanic-looking man grab the hat away from the teens, he also leveled a racial slur at them (missing the mark, of course, because none of the teens were black) and threw the contents of a soda cup at them.
This anti-social action was shared by the teens on social media and the hispanic-looking man was immediately identified as a part-time employee at Rumble, a San Antonio bar. The bar made a post on Facebook explaining that the hispanic-looking man (Kino Jimenez, pronounced Key-no Hee-men-es) did not exemplify the standards of behavior expected from the drinking establishment, and had been fired.
Social media being what it is, of course, a number of people left comments on Rumble's facebook page, enough so that Rumble decided to delete their own facebook page.
Anyway, the War Between the States did not break out in a single day. It had been preceded by decades of antagonistic policies that drove North and South apart and left no avenues of communication. Things like keeping a balance between slave states and free states, and then the Kansas Nebraska act where the people would vote on whether the Kansas territory would be free or slave, that stuff was happening in the 1840s and 1850s. In Kansas, there was an incident where around 800 pro-slavery men descended on Lawrence, a town of 1500 people, and looted and burned the town. A dude named John Brown decided he would arm slaves and attempt to initiate a slave insurrection.
History doesn't repeat itself, but it rhymes. The question is, how to make the left stop whipping people into a self-righteous frenzy? How to make the left admit its own mistakes and renounce all lefty politicians that espouse violence?
So far we haven't had any legislation that has really pissed people off. The left is trying to make immigrant child separation a thing, but that's not catching on, I do not think. Most Americans know that the kids are separated for a matter of hours while their border-jumping parents go through deportation court. less well known is that parents can be immediately reunited with their children if they sign a piece of paper agreeing to their own deportation.
This came out more jumbled than I thought. The point is, I am going to make ruthless fun of those jerks on the left who use violence to intimidate people and further their inane political ends.
