Progress in the face of the Modern American Imperium
Oh my god. ohmygod.
I needed an antidote to the vomitous bile of the stormtroopers video, so here you go: a true hero. This young guy was protecting an old white man and himself from the neoNazies. (He actually works as a eldercare worker.) The only "weapon" he had was a can of spray paint that one of the assholes had thrown at him earlier in the day, so he lit the aerosol on fire and used the flame to hold the Nazis at bay, after one of them fired a gun at him. Read the story; amazing. This young man is smart and articulate. (And one might notice that he is really in fine physical shape, especially when compared to the paunchy white "master race" specimens who were shooting at him.)Photo and story at:https://www.theroot.com/interview-how-corey-long-fought-white-supremacy-with-f-1797831277
Thanks for the Root story on Corey Long. I'd seen some stuff on him around the web but nothing as complete as that. He did the right thing and apparently scared the shit out of the fascists and nazis.One thing I noticed was that nearly all the nazis were from out of town, out of state, out of their minds, whereas nearly all the counter-protesters were from Charlottesville or nearby. This point has been largely missed by the equivocators.I doubt the nazis will be back; but they will certainly show up elsewhere.
