Letter To Editor
By Jake Pickering
A pro-Trump White supremacist, partisan Republican fan of Fox News from Grover, North Carolina drove his mud-caked pickup truck up onto the sidewalk of the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. on August 19, 2021, where he parked for five hours.
All the while, he filmed himself on Facebook live-streaming his right-wing political bomb threats against President Biden, Democrats, and the residents of D.C., including this pro-Trump terrorist filming his apparently inert, improvised explosive devices all on Facebook for any cross-burning QAnon crackpot to copy.
For some reason, this 49-year-old attempted bomber by the name of Floyd Ray Roseberry seemed to individually personify traitor Trump’s political base as it’s become known generally: a violent, racist, low-IQ, neo-Confederate numbskull who is completely out of touch with reality and is in desperate need of psychiatric medication, much like the deranged and delusional dimwit Donald Trump himself.
I don’t know if it was the brain-damaged sounding, slow Southern drawl with which this White supremacist spoke, or if it was Mr. Roseberry’s bulbous shaved head and unnecessarily large pickup truck with unnecessarily large tires, but if one were to hypothetically be able to look up a picture of the average Trump supporter in the dictionary… a photo of Floyd the barber from Mayberry (I mean Grover), North Carolina is surely what one would find.
And as far as Floyd’s idiotic insistence live on Facebook that “The South shall rise again”, please! I’ve watched “Gone With the Wind” too, but if you’re actually taking your American history lessons from a pro-Confederacy, pro-slavery cinematic crapfest that was so racist (even for its time) that it actually portrayed Black folks as happy to be enslaved, well then, you’re probably too racist and clueless to be cognizant at all.
Speaking of clueless racists, Republican Texas Governor Greg Abbott recently contracted COVID-19 after spending the past several months issuing dictatorial edicts from the Governor’s Mansion in Austin against local mask mandates and blocking other necessary public health safety measures, instead of repairing Texas’ broken power grid before the upcoming winter.
Hopeless, hapless Gov. Abbott and his pro-Russian Republican comrade from Canada, Rafael “Ted” Cruz, should both plan on making another mid-winter escape to Cancun, Mexico in the midst of what is sure to be another disastrously deadly power grid shutdown season in Texas. Both Governor Greg Abbott and Senator Cancun Cruz will no doubt continue to complain about law schools teaching “critical race theory” as a manufactured distraction from their own personal political corruption and their continuing criminal negligence.
