PROGRESSIVE INDEPENDENT POETRY: “Alternative Facts on Seven Countries’ Terrorists” / Black Agenda Report / Raymond Nat Turner ☮

by BAR poet in residence Raymond Nat Turner

This and every year since the dawn of this country, most terrorist acts in the US have been perpetrated by white Christian males. So how, our poet asks, do we make sense of Trump’s attempted travel ban and its effect on terrorism inside the US? Do they really fear that white boys will be trained in Somaila, Yemen, Iraq or Iran?

Iraq, Iran, Libya,
Somalia, Syria, Sudan, Yemen

Havens for White Boy Terrorist Training—

Love of Hitler, hatred of Jews and how to say ‘nigger’ in 19 languages
While organizing Lynch Mobs posing as Sports Fans and practicing
Foam Finger Fundamentalism: “U-S-A, U-S-A, U-S-A!” and singing the
“Star Spangled Banner” Bud-drunk, obedient to the 1%
Why, even FOX thinks they’re

Instruction from the White Boy Field Manual On Murder—
Stand Your Ground Studies: how to say with conviction,
“I feared for my safety…” after shooting ‘sand niggers’ ‘rag-heads’
‘camel jockeys’ ‘gooks’ ‘spics’ ‘spades’ ‘chinks’ and cutting off fingers

Hey, maybe the Drone Ranger’s bombing 7 countries
Makes sense?
Maybe he was taking out existential threats:
White Boy Terrorist Training Camps?
