White “Christian”©®™ conservative and racist Murica‘ likes to bandy about the word “Thug” as if it was their word.
It is not. I am taking it back from these knuckle dragging miscreants. They do not deserve it, and it is dangerous for them to possess it. I propose we adopt Federal legislation that makes any of these bigots found in possession of the word “Thug” a hate crime punishable by public shaming.
Donald Trump hosts what is effectively a Klan rally and all of his followers spew the venom of misinformed malice upon that which is unfamiliar in a desperate and flagellating effort to make up the meaning of America as only applicable to their self-interests. It is the last bastion of a waning empire of entitlement. It is the foaming rabidity to rage against the reality that they are not special. It is the best attempt of low information stupid to cat call at their own cacophony of an unjust cause. In order to make it all better, the rest of our diversified nation must be not only wrong, but we must be Thugs, especially if we are black or brown.
If we see injustice in the form of unwarranted police brutality that results in the death of a human being and we rise up to oppose it?
We immediately become Thugs.
If we say George Zimmerman was not a pleasurable and pleasing person to have on the Neighborhood “Watch”, then we are Thugs.
Trayvon Martin and his Skittles?
Clearly a Thug.
Michael Brown in Ferguson?
The protestors who then screamed out in fear at a system of government that did not represent them or their families?
All of them Thugs.
They wish to claim the word Thug as if it were their excuse to explain the nature of their idiotic cognitive dissonance- their own self-loathing hatred for the mantle of entitled discontent at losing privilege that never belonged to them in the first place. They use it freely when cornered by the internalized faux righteousness they possess to define and label the indignation any human with empathy (and two IQ points to rub together) has to rise up and fight against the tyranny of their “moral” blathering and hatred and fear of the unknown.
The word Thug does not belong to you anymore. I am taking it back.
I AM RECLAIMING THE WORD *THUG*
It is my word and I like it. To the bigots and zealots and the fear-filled racists of my Country? It is not your word anymore. It belongs to me now, and I will use it for its intended purpose and meaning.
