A Note on Current Events

You’d have to have been living in a cave without wifi or living under a rock somewhere to not know about Charlottesville.

Let me go on the record here and say that I did not create this blog in order to espouse politics. But on this, I cannot stay silent. This was a disgusting display. There aren’t enough words in the English language to describe how angry and revolted I feel at this moment. I’m a child of the ’80s, a teen of the ’90s and I’ve seen some shit but nothing as repulsive as this.

This has no place in society. At all.

And by the way: you can’t be a Nazi and an American. There was a little skirmish about that in the 1940s that settled the issue. Other countries were involved. Bombs were dropped. Accords were signed. This was settled seventy years ago. The world kind of agreed that Nazis are bad people and they are not US citizens.

You can’t be a Confederate and an American, either. There was a tiny little dispute over that back in early 1860s. You might have read about it in school: it was called THE FUCKING CIVIL WAR. The South seceded from the Union. Confederates were not nor have they ever been United States citizens. They renounced the US! I should know: I spent most of my formative years in the South.

I know that I might lose followers for this. I can’t say that I blame you. This is upsetting. It is exhausting. Politics is an exhausting issue. But I cannot stay silent about this. Silence is tacit approval and that is something I refuse to give. Because there is someone who would be very disappointed in me if I said nothing.

Bumblebee-NaziFighter

Yes, you are seeing that correctly. Bumblebee fought the Nazis. If I am to follow his example, I can do no less.

About Silverwynde

I'm a Transformers fan, Pokémon player, Brewers fan and all-out general nerd. I rescue abandoned Golett, collect as many Bumblebee decoys and figures as I can find and I've attended every BotCon since 1999. I'm also happily married to a fellow Transfan named Prime and we are both owned by a very intelligent half-Siamese cat. Life is pretty darned awesome.

    As I told Joe recently, the capacity for human stupidity is limitless. In spite of that, thank Primus most Americans oppose Nazis and racists. That was one of the few bright spots in movie5 when Bumblebee is fighting Nazis. That expanded his character. 🙂
