We may all easily recall Desperate Housewives, the 2004 to 2012 television series on the ABC network. But, we may not be sufficiently savvy to perceive desperate white supremacists in these United States. Perhaps this commentary will shed some light on the topic that may become a network television series, too, in the not-so-distant future on Sinclair Broadcasting Group nationwide for rednecks everywhere.
Look no further than to Charlottesville, Virginia in August 2017 to find clear-cut and very obvious examples of desperate white supremacists. Unfortunately, I suspect that after this commentary appears online, there may be other examples elsewhere outside of the Commonwealth of Virginia. I easily would anticipate such a violent outburst in the great state of Texas, for instance.
In August 2017, I happened to publish a fictional story that stands as an antithesis to desperate white supremacists. I offer this to anyone who is against desperate white supremacists. What I wrote is entitled Baja Clavius (link).
I am not attempting to cash in on the debate over white supremacy here in my country. I happened to have lived in the Commonwealth of Virginia for nearly 20 years, but now I live in Las Vegas, Nevada. What I wrote took decades to finish starting back in 1990. This work (finally!) was completed years before Trump promised to “make America great again” and other such blatant pandering to desperate white supremacists going on these days here in our beloved country, the United States of America.
If you are reading this you deserve to have an alternative to the pandering to desperate white people by Trump and his kind even if you happen to be one of those desperate white supremacists. Trump got elected primarily because white people in the United States were sincerely and undeniably afraid of being displaced culturally and politically by blacks from everywhere and by Hispanics from Mexico, in particular.
Whether Trump believes any of that pandering propaganda he espouses is beyond my expertise to discern. He may be brilliant. He may be insane. Who knows? I am not qualified to make that determination either way. So, you have to judge Trump for yourself.
But, I am qualified to write Baja Clavius as much as anyone is qualified to write science fiction nowadays. I promise you that this work of science fiction is an alternative to hatred of blacks and Hispanics.
Baja Clavius is an alternative to the commonly-held belief in these United States in an interventionist deity. He is popularly known as God the Father and/or God the Almighty.
If you believe the undeniable genius of the Dutch artists of the Renaissance, then you already believe that this interventionist deity sports a big white beard and has blue eyes. And, yes, of course, like the Dutch Masters, God in Heaven above has light-colored skin.
This Dutch-defined interventionist deity of certain Caucasian origins lives “up there” somewhere in another dimension otherwise known as Heaven. At God’s side is his only son, our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. And, there’s also a third deity as well. He is named the Holy Ghost. He completes the trinity that we all are supposed to worship if we are expecting to be going to Heaven when we die.
I was under the age of 10 when I was socialized (i.e., forced through years of brainwashing) to believe that these three gods-in-one are the basis of The One True Church. In comparison, all other religions are known to be “fake news” but we didn’t have the gall to use that sorry phrase back in the 1950s which Trump (who is older than me) believes was the sole time that American was, indeed, what he calls “great.” What Trump means, of course, is there once was at that time in these United States that had far less of cultural impact of black people as well as people from Central America. Those days are gone forever and cannot be ushered back by anyone.
I was born and raised in California. There I met many black people and people from Mexico, specifically. So, because of my upbringing in California, I naturally have a died-in-the-wool suspicion of people (like Trump) who were born in New York City. Nor do I accept the lies I’ve been sold about black people and people from Mexico.
I learned to think for myself. I learned to evaluate people based on the content of their character rather than the color of their skin or their country of origin.
Happily for me, over the decades I have met many wonderful people who were born in New York City who someone did NOT turn out to be chiefly arrogant and aggressive but lack sufficient content of character as do Trump and all his offspring.
My writing and my 3D digital art, and, especially Baja Clavius are, taken together, intended as a celebration for those of you out there who think for yourselves and who have learned the secret of evaluating people for their content of their character. But, who am I? Well, the honest truth is: I am a white gay male atheist over the age of 65 who was born in the leftist state of California.
