Akhirnya polisi bisa “put the handcuffs on criminals instead of us” kata White Supremacist Bob Kroll.

The death of George Floyd kulminasi police brutality. Trigger aksi massa. Forget coronavirus. No physical distancing. Riots pecah di banyak kota. Demonstrasi more diverse daripada March on Washington 1963. Black & white. Perempuan-lelaki. Tall short. Semuanya turun.

President Trump bereaksi. National guards di-deploy ke 21 states. Rubber bullets, flash bang, tear gas. Jurnalist Australia digebuk.

Aksi sampai ke White House. Vandalisme pecah di sekitar Lincoln Memorial. President Trump ngumpet di underground bunker anti teror.

On Monday evening, federal authorities menurunkan badai tear-gas di Lafayette Square. Demonstrans berantakan dipukul mundur.

President Trump berjalan di antara pepohonan. Heavily guarded. High level of security. Secret servis. Polisi. Militer. Percaya diri. Destinasinya ke Saint John Paul II National Shrine, a holy space maintained by the Knights of Columbus. Sekalipun dia bukan Katolik.

President Trump berpose di Rose Garden, di depan St. John’s Episcopal Church. Pegang Holy Bible. Moronic Sacrilegious big show.

Bahasa politik. Menang perang. Dominating the street. Demonstrators disebut thugs, Profesional anarkis, violent mobs, socialist dan extrim left. Antifa dikategorisasi sebagai domestic terrorist group.

President Trump branding diri sebagai “defensor fidei”. Defender of the Faith. Tradisi Monarki Inggris & Perancis abad ke 16. Ketika mengangkat diri sebagai raja, Henri I of Haiti awarded himself the title, “le défenseur de la foi”.

President Trump mengkonsolidasi kekuatan Conservatist Christians. Photo Op-nya berpesan Fight the socialist.

Menurut Professor of moral & political theology Luke Bretherton, American’s Cold War efforts to demonize socialism as viciously atheistic and amoral.

President Trump ingin mengembalikan America 1950s. No immigrant, no negros, no homosexual, no human rights, no equality, no muslim, no socialist. Yang ada hanya “White Anglo Saxon Protestants” yang dominate the space.

Sabtu ini, Anti Trump protesters berencana mengumpulkan 1 juta orang dari semua states ke White House. “Now is the time to plot, plan, strategize, organize, and mobilize,” kata rapper-cum-activist Killer Mike.
