Martyrs Against The Ethnoracism Being Generated By Trump's Version Of America

Feeling Rebloggy

     The actual title of the Salon Article is here-- 

Martyrs against racism in Donald Trump’s America: What happened in Portland was shocking, but not surprising

We will need more heroes like Ricky Best, Taliesin Namkai-Meche and Micah Fletcher. They acted selflessly to defend two young women against a white supremacist thug in Portland. 2 of them were murdered. 1 was seriously injured. Unfortunately, they will not be the last people to suffer harm by the hate mongers who have been aroused and excited by Donald Trump's regime. I explain more in my new piece that can be read below.

Micah Fletcher,  Ricky Best and Taliesin Namkai-Meche are heroes.
These three men acted selflessly and without concern for their own safety as they came to the aid of two women — one Muslim and the other African-American — who were being verbally assaulted and threatened by a white supremacist in Portland, Oregon, last Friday....

Christian allegedly slit the throats of Best and Namkai-Meche and then stabbed Fletcher. Best and Namkai-Meche are dead; Fletcher remains hospitalized with serious injuries. The two young women were able to escape unharmed.

Best and Namkai-Meche gave up their lives

...About two weeks ago, a 23-year-old African-American college student was stabbed to death on the University of Maryland campus by a white supremacist. Richard Collins III refused Sean Urbanski’s order to “Step left, step left if you know what’s good for you.” Urbanski then channeled the white supremacist logic of Jim and Jane Crow and the “black codes,” allegedly killing Collins for refusing an order from a white man....

These murders are part of a larger trend. There has been a record increase in hate crimes and other violence against Muslims, nonwhites, Jews and immigrants that began with Donald Trump’s presidential campaign in 2016 and continues through to the present. [Despite Jeremy Christian being an atheist], the Anti Defamation League has documented how right-wing domestic terrorists — almost all of them white and Christian [CINOs] — have killed hundreds of Americans since 2007.
