American confronts violence

by jake cosmos aller

Violence is as American as apple pie - erasure/found contrapuntal poem

Violence is as American
as apple pie
always has been
always will be
since the dawn of time

unpublished poem by Jake Aller

When I look at the United States today
I am inclined to believe
that the history we were taught
in school was an idealized romanticized
trove of half truths at best...

MAGA
105 thousands dead
riots across the land
George Floyd killed

America has always been a land of violence
... divisiveness...conflict ...

MAGA
105 thousands dead
riots across the land
George Floyd killed

..it Is a country
that at its core is racist
and suspicious of knowledge.
... especially empirical knowledge...

MAGA
105 thousands dead
riots across the land
George Floyd killed

found poem by Jake Cosmos Aller based on FB musings William Walton

But it is not enough for me to stand before you tonight
and condemn riots.
It would be morally irresponsible
for me to do that without,


at the same time,
condemning the contingent,
intolerable conditions
that exist in our society.

Martin Luther King

NYC, CALL UP THE NATIONAL GUARD. The lowlifes and losers are ripping you apart. Act fast! Don't make the same horrible and deadly mistake you made with the Nursing Homes!!!

Donald J Trump

I known
a lot of law enforcement
people over the years,

some are my friends
and best friends
are police officers,

I've coach with some
for years from Berkeley
Oakland to Elk Grove

FB musings James Felix

"These THUGS are dishonoring the memory of George Floyd, and I won't let that happen," Trump tweeted shortly before 1 a.m. Friday, adding, "Any difficulty and we will assume control but, when the looting starts, the shooting starts."

Donald J Trump banned by twitter tweet

"I must make
two honest confessions
to you, my Christian and Jewish brothers.

First, I must confess
that over the past few years
I have been gravely disappointed
with the white moderate.

Martin Luther King

Yesterday was a bad day for the Cuomo Brothers. New York was lost to the looters, thugs, Radical Left, and all others forms of Lowlife & Scum. The Governor refuses to accept my offer of a dominating National Guard. NYC was ripped to pieces. Likewise, Fredo's ratings are down 50%!

Donald J Trump

Are not police officers
classified as first responders?

If an untrained individual
of average intelligence
were kneeling

on someone's neck
and that person
said he could not breathe

would not the untrained individual
of average intelligence
lessen the amount
of pressure being placed upon the neck?

Or perhaps
use a different method
of restraint if he felt threatened?

FB musing William Walton

D.C. had no problems last night. Many arrests. Great job done by all. Overwhelming force. Domination. Likewise, Minneapolis was great (thank you President Trump!).


My Admin has done more for the Black Community than any President since Abraham Lincoln. Passed Opportunity Zones with
@SenatorTimScott
, guaranteed funding for HBCU's, School Choice, passed Criminal Justice Reform, lowest Black unemployment, poverty, and crime rates in history...

Donald J Trump


These conditions are the things
that cause individuals
to feel that they have no other alternative
than to engage
in violent rebellions to get attention.

And I must say tonight
that a riot
is the language of the unheard.


And what is it America
has failed to hear?
It has failed to hear

Martin Luther King

We have the greatest country in the world--and we will keep America safe.

Donald J Trump

that the plight
of the negro poor
has worsened
over the last twelve or fifteen years.

Martin Luther King

These are not acts of peaceful protest. These are acts of domestic terror."

Donald J Trump


it anger me to see
all of this violence on tv,

FB Musings James Felix

Anarchists, we see you!

i know their a few bad ones
out there,

FB Musings James Felix

SILENT MAJORITY!

Donald Trump

and i know
what has happen
wasn't right
and over the years,

FB musings James Felix

My first and highest duty as President is to defend our great country and the American people.

Donald J Trump

but people who are causing
all this damages
across the nation
is uncalled for

Martin Luther King

Our highest respect to the family of David Dorn, a Great Police Captain from St. Louis, who was viciously shot and killed by despicable looters last night. We honor our police officers, perhaps more than ever before. Thank you!

Donald J Trump

Washington, D.C., Was the safest place on earth last night!

...AND THE BEST IS YET TO COME!

We can protest peacefully
without destroying someone property,
we're going their this covid 19
and people are trying to open back up

New York City put on an 11:00 P.M. CURFEW last night. No wonder they ripped the place apart. Should be 7:00 P.M. CALL UP THE NATIONAL GUARD. #SAVENYC

NYC, CALL UP THE NATIONAL GUARD. The lowlifes and losers are ripping you apart. Act fast! Don't make the same horrible and deadly mistake you made with the Nursing Homes!!!

and get back to work,
do it right as the o;d movie title
said, ( Do the Right Thing).
If you feel I'm wrong

FB musing James Felix

"Media Falsely Claimed Violent Riots Were Peaceful And That Tear Gas Was Used Against Rioters"
The media glommed onto the narrative that Trump was a monster who tear-gassed peaceful protesters to do something meaningless. None of that was true.

Donald J Trump re tweet

Note: live coverage showed tear gas,
and flash bangs
and rubber bullets
were fired at the crowd at 6:30

prior to curfew at 7 pm
and no one confirms
the park police claim that they
were under fire by projectiles thrown by the crowd
who is zooming whom?

then feel free to unfired me,

"My Administration will always stand against violence, mayhem, and disorder.

Donald J Trump

It has failed to hear
that the promises of freedom
and justice have not been met.
And it has failed to hear
Martin Luther King

We will stand with the family of George Floyd, with the peaceful protesters, and with every law-abiding citizen who wants decency, civility, safety, and security."
Donald J Trump

that large segments of white society
are more concerned about tranquility
and the status que
than about justice and humanity."
Martin Luther King

..have Been greeted with the most vicious dogs, and most ominous weapons, I have ever seen. That's when people would have been really badly hurt, at least. Many Secret Service agents just waiting for action. "We put the young ones on the front line, sir, they love it, and....
Donald J Trump

I have almost reached
the regrettable conclusion
that the Negro's great stumbling block
in his stride toward freedom I

s not the White Citizen's Councilor
or the K Klux Klanner,
but the white moderate,
who is more devoted to "order"
than to justice; who prefers
a negative peace

which is the absence of tension
to a positive peace
which is the presence of justice;

Martin Luther King

....It was spoken as a fact,
not as a statement.
It's very simple,
nobody should have any problem
with this other than the haters,

and those looking to
cause trouble on social media.
Honor the memory of George Floyd!

Looting leads to shooting,
and that's
why a man was shot
and killed in Minneapolis
on Wednesday night -

or look at what just happened
in Louisville with 7 people shot.
I don't want this to happen,
and that's what the expression
put out last night means..

Donald J Trump quoting Miami Police chief
and notorious racist from a 1967 speech

who constantly says:
"I agree with you in the goal you seek,
but I cannot agree
with your methods of direct action";

who paternalistically believes
he can set the timetable
for another man's freedom;

Martin Luther King

"And to our African-American fellow citizens,
I say this: Given his own experience
with an out-of-control FBI
and unfair investigation,
given all the work on criminal justice reform,

President Trump knows how poisonous
and out-of-control law enforcement process can be,"
Ingramham proudly declared,
concluding her mini-monologue.

who lives by a mythical
concept of time
and who constantly advises

the Negro to wait

Shallow understanding

Martin Luther King

..got too frisky or out of line,
they would quickly come
down on them,
hard -
didn't know what hit them.
The front line was replaced
with fresh agents, l

Big crowd, professionally organized,

to breaching the fence.
If they had they would....

Martin Luther King

Great job last night at the White House
by the U.S.
@SecretService
. They were not only totally professional,
but very cool.
I was inside,
watched every move,
and couldn't have felt more safe

. They let the "protesters" scream
& rant as much as they wanted, but whenever someone...

Donald J Trump

Lukewarm acceptance
is much more bewildering
than outright rejection."
Martin Luther King

..good practice."
As you saw last night,
they were very cool
& very professional.
Never let it get out of hand.
Thank you!
On the bad side,
the D.C. Mayor,
@MurielBowser
, who is always looking
for money & help,
wouldn't let the D.C. Police
get involved. "
Not their job."
Nice!
