Vermont has been the new destination for carpetbagging BLM leftists looking to subjugate white people by shaming them. Lost on these new arrivals is the stark contrast between urban metropoli and the backwoods of Vermont, resulting in extreme toxicity leveled at Vermonters.
One black “artist” named Rajnii Eddins moved to Vermont from L.A., to “educate” Vermonters about their culture:
The homogeneity has increased my awareness of the need to speak up about white supremacy and to hold space more intentionally for a myriad of underheard voices and narratives…. The land itself being the original home to the Abenaki people has often spoken to me in profound ways and being in nature I feel there is so much to be gained from the spirit that existed here prior to colonization and is still here.
This New Age fanaticism is all very nice, but grossly ignorant. This guy entered a white area and immediately JUDGED that everyone there is racist — by virtue of being homogeneously white (he’d best not visit Poland!). A person could hardly be more wrong about Vermont.
Judging rural Vermonters…
This newly ruralized urbanite then applies his urban life to the Green Mountains, just as BLM activists used George Floyd’s inner city death to portray rural Vermont police as somehow complicit. While emphasizing the importance of “having empathy,” Eddins’ poetry exhibits something quite different:
…Stop murdering us in cold blood
Stop kneeling with your knees on our necks for writing good or bad checks or whatever the excuse of the day is
Stop running up in our houses for fitting the description of your insane fear
Stop killing us while running or jogging or walking or standing or being
Stop threatening to have us killed when your comfort convenience or fake-ass concept of superiority is threatened.
Stop telling us to stop.
Do not pass go.
Go directly to jail or be killed….
Tell [your children] there is nothing superior about white
Tell them Black is divine
And that if you think everything is fine then you have already lost your mind.
Did this guy just get off the bus from Soweto? Because not only is this not a picture of Vermont, but we have watched mobs of black people with bullhorns harassing white people in their houses. Has there been a single case in Vermont of white people “running up in our houses for fitting the description of your insane fear?” A single recorded Vermont case of a lynching or murder of a black person for racist motives, ever?
Many liberals exalt Rajnii’s Malcolm X rhetoric, oblivious that it is built on a history re-write and a slanderous assault against an entire heritage and people
Rajnii’s tongue is ancestral, and his spirit is free. In the tradition of sacred word-warriors, he names the fallen and the martyrs with extraordinary grace and a humbling consciousness that manifest light in all directions. His fiery poems ration out eternal wisdoms that call forth simply a substitution of love for hate and a spiritual reckoning so that we all can breathe.
If that ain’t lipstick on swine, what on earth is? Calling for murder and to jail people for blood caked on white Vermonters’ hands, is a “substitution of love for hate and a spiritual reckoning?” OK — who smoked dog poop in their weed again? If Vermonters have any blood “caked on their hands,” it is from a farming injury, or perhaps serving in the Civil War to abolish slavery.
This toxic insanity arises from an ideology seething with contempt for the Bill of Rights. Just as Vermont’s history is being turned upside down to comply with this newfangled “substitution of love over hate,” so too is the national effort to supplant the Constitution with this “new” and undefined kind of love — one in which race and identity are the dominant determiners of societal position; where wealth will be reallocated to achieve an impossible “equity”; where free speech will not be tolerated when it makes Left-leaning people uncomfortable.
Say Their Names….
If true Vermonters heard Rajnii, they’d be alarmed, and offended — not because they are clutching their purses, but because his toxic lies are an abuse of the privilege of living in the Green Mountain State. Vermont is not free of racists (especially since Rajnii arrived), but it is NOT systemically racist, any more than America — our Constitution has evolved to oppose all systemic racism. By definition it aspires toward equality.
BLM and the Far Left seek to exploit the scars of slavery to impose a new Orwellian racism, in the name of progress. It is a Dark Path, and the words of BLM — and its poets — only thinly disguise the hate and anger that fester within.
If you think everything is fine with BLM, you have already lost your mind. The United States Constitution can help you be well again.
