Work 4 Peace,Hold All Life Sacred,Eliminate Violence! This is my often neglected blog mostly about my travels across country in my mobile billboard truck as I attempt to engage in dialogue with people in hopes to wake us up and inspire action to change our country and communities and selves. And it is froth with my opinions, insights, analyses toward that end of holding all life sacred, dismantling the empire and eliminating violence while creating the society and life we want

Fear

I think it is dangerous to name tRump things like 'baby' or 'stupid' or 'puppet' - or to call him anything but FASCIST or MISOGYNIST, RACIST, WAR MONGERING FASCIST maybe.

He is the epitome of the white and the male we've been fighting for decades now, since I've been alive - and for centuries before my birth. In fact, he is the epitome of the white males that 'discovered', colonized and committed genocide to take over this country and make it a safe and bountiful place for white people.

I express this opinion to the white womon who has flagged down my truck in the auto parts parking lot and is referring to tRump as just a boy with a boy's temper tantrum fits.

I classify her as a Buddhist when she objects to my "make racists, misogynists, war-mongering fascists scared again", turning doe eyes on me to declare these poor white bigots ARE already scared and driven by fear.

I have to inhale deeply when I ask what does she think they might be fear? Losing their lives, families, homes, she responds.

I say "losing their privilege and superiority and domination". She reluctantly agrees.

I let her know I'm saying make them be afraid to be overtly racist, etc.

She laughs uncomfortably, cheeks turning pinkish, but then says she gets it: racists have been given the green light to act out on their bigotry. Then she confirms my suspicions, she's a Buddhist.... hmmm, although struggling with the accept all concept.
