“White (CR)ISIS” #TheyAreUs

Important Disclaimers: I am NOT a clinically trained medical or mental health professional, nor am I trained in any forms of law enforcement or public safety.

If you or someone you know is in danger of hurting themselves or others, please contact emergency services, immediately.

Oh, here we go.

Call this the sanctity of human life manifesto of someone who dabbles in human rights, but to add a touch of fun for my haters, I’ll add I’m white, female, old, fat, Jewish and ugly.

Well, on the outside, which is obviously what only matters to people who hate.

And where we differ religiously, politically, culturally, gender, socioeconomics and race, for those who are intellectually, mentally and spiritually impotent who will hate aggressively and sometimes their rage will be deadly.

This the my take on the massacre yesterday at 2 mosques in New Zealand, that horrifically killed 49 people.

Anyone who is capable of that kind of evil horrific devastation in a place of worship, ANY place of worship, is an evil coward.

I’d like to use profane words, but I’m trying to make this blog a safe space for people who might find that language offensive, because I honestly think in the end, an evil coward is the worst thing anyone could be.

For someone who leans liberal but does have a conservative streak, like I do,  I’m not trying to cause pain when I say, I don’t think a huge concentrated effort in gun control will help prevent some of  these massacres.

We are in a different era, a sensational one spawned from what’s bad about the internet and social media.

Anyone who could kill innocent people praying, in a place of worship, if they can’t shoot at them, will try to kill people they hate in a different way, even we could come up with supersmart technology that could render guns ineffective, people will still continue to die from numerous ways that can be used to commit mass murder.

Because, these massacres that keep happening over and over again, aren’t rooted in the HOW or even in the WHERE, they are rooted in the WHY.

I get that as a reclusive activist, maybe people aren’t ready to accept that you cannot legislate hate and addiction, away.

I came up with the title of this blog when trying to figure out privately, why these particular hateful  racist, islamophobic and antisemitic mass murders committed by white supremacists keep happening over and over again.

And I thought, that it’s pathetic  they are “White ISIS/White “(CR)ISIS”, but worse, because there is usually some organic privilege, that whether or not these people where sometimes they grow up in an environment of hatred,  become enraged at an older age at a population for a multitude of reasons, if they weren’t nurtured in it, when they were young and will still commit or at least try to,  these atrocities.

I’ve been trying as an activist/blogger to figure out if it’s possible, if empathy and trying to instill in people the fundamental right all humans should have of a peaceful life with without risk of physical  mental harm and/or death, can be taught, in hopes of preventing all and any kind of murders and other horrific acts of violence, in the digital era.

I don’t know, I can only hope that more initiatives are introduced that teach the importance of how we can all peacefully coexist with people who look, think and have beliefs differently then we do, is actually possible.

Starting from the time when people are very young to lifelong and hopefully this will happen sooner than later.

And then maybe, just maybe,  we might have a shot of preventing some of these horrific tragedies.

My thoughts and prayers are with the victims, the families and friends of the victims who were murdered at the New Zealand mosques and the entire Muslim community.

Note: Any comments that aren’t constructive to peace and people, will not be posted. Because this isn’t my first time calling out a group of haters (i.e. Project Harpoon) any death threats that I should receive because of this blog, will be forward to law enforcement.

Because, while there isn’t much that’s enviable about me, I still know how to help people and when I don’t like someone who’s operating on the offensive in their transactions with me or others, am still intelligent enough to use words, because one thing I’m not,nor should anyone be, is an ignorant, stupid, hateful and  violent coward.

An Open Letter to Meghan McCain…

5b807e2d8ea82f32008b587b-750-374

Dear Meghan, (not that I ever expect “open letter” type of blogs to make it to the famous people, that I write to, it’s more of putting it out to the universe, in hopes to help while I still hope to retain my privacy as a reclusive introverted activist and private person).

I saw today’s clip of The View on You Tube, and it’s hard not to feel your pain, when topics regarding cancer come up, such as the interview with Ricki Lake.

It’s also hard, if one is stupid enough like I am, to read the comments such as today and in past interviews where your grief is still so raw but so understandable.

I think of your dad, often.

I feel bad because some of the reasons why I miss John McCain are purely selfish.

Our country needs him, now more than ever.

There would’ve never been a good time for him to pass, in that regard.

But it goes beyond my scope of comprehension of the loss that you feel but so bravely show, that you show that people have to grieve the loss of their most beloved on their own terms and there are those of us, even if we can’t comprehend the magnitude of your loss, admire that bravery and immense love you have for your Dad.

The one thing that was crystal clear, that your Dad was so proud of all his children.

Another was that he trusted you would find your own path and would be of greatness unique to you, as much great that you’ve already done, that there was more greatness in you, to come out, as you grow even more into the wonderful woman that you are.

I believe that you will be a part of what’s needed to find a cure and less invasive treatments for Glioblastoma, like Joe Biden has, with the tragic loss of his son, Beau.

I believe that will only though be a part of what amazing legacy and wonderful things you will do, you’ve already showed that people can be conservative but with somewhat of an open mind, not seeing conservatism in black and white, you’ve already accomplished so much with that.

My objective with writing this, is that just like your Dad was a one of a kind national treasure, you are an an amazing woman with a lot of gifts, your intelligence, your inner and out beauty, your love and your loyalty and passion to do the right thing and to do so, in front of a global audience which can be so difficult when there is so much hate in this world, something I hope you can not let deter you from being you, which I don’t think it can and doing what you feel is right, that will continue to help make the world a better place.

Not just because of your amazing father, but because of who you are, Meghan McCain.

Peace, Lisa
