|My tribute of flowers in memory of Heather Heyer
Heather Heyer was killed in Charlottesville while protesting against the racism of the Alt-Right. The moment she was killed was the moment that racism had reached its nadir this year because she was fighting against something that by any normal and moral standards of decency is WRONG.
The Alt-Right exudes a privilege that it has no moral or legal right to lay claim to but, by dint of being of being born White, these knuckleheads think they are superior. They stoke fear and division and thrive on it because this is the only way that they are capable of demonstrating their so-called laughable ‘strength’.
Heather Heyer was White too.
Her murder shows us that the Alt-Right’s logic is no different to Jihadism which kills more Muslims in the Middle East than Westerners in the West. Unless you are a clone of theirs you are not on the ‘right’ side and are worthy of violence.
The Alt-Right created and enabled an environment in which one of their members killed an upright member of society who had made it a mission of hers to keep fighting for justice.
