In spite of the fact Cuyahoga County has been declared a coronavirus “hot spot” due to the recent increase in positive test results, actual cases of infection and deaths, there still are some suburban school districts (primarily in Republican-leaning bergs like Brecksville, Westlake and North Royalton) where many parents are demanding that classes be allowed to resume, the scientifically documented danger to students and teachers alike be damned.
And some students have been so indoctrinated by their parents they are set to hold rallies and demonstrations to force school officials to allow them to place their health and lives in jeopardy, not only in Cuyahoga County, but in other parts of the state and country as well.
Which begs the question, just what the hell is happening in America?
It’s this: White nationalism is running amok in our beloved land. Those on the far right have come to the conclusion that the reelection of tRump is so vital to their plans to change the form of government we live under they are willing to put the lives of their progeny on the line to achieve their goal of continued white domination. And they see the reopening of schools — as well as businesses — as critical to winning in November.
Their plan, should the orange-haired demagogue win reelection, is to move to alter our form of governance from a constitutional republic based on one man/one vote, to something akin to apartheid, where a smaller white minority continues to rule over a larger majority of persons of color.
Nonetheless, the extent to which these ideologues are willing to go — so far as to place their children’s lives in danger — is absolutely astounding and augurs badly for future racial peace. Even if tRump is defeated in November (as it appears he will be), it’s going to be extremely difficult to get these diehard bigots to crawl back under the rocks from whence they came.
These rabid racists — once their leader is defeated — will no doubt attempt to embark on a plan to destroy the Republic they cannot continue to control … if they don’t already have a “Plan B” in place for such an eventuality. Heaven help us all if they are allowed to put their diabolical schemes into action — there goes the country.
