My brothers and sisters, this is not a partisan issue. This is about confronting evil.


Charlottesville verses to tune of “My Country Tis of Thee”


Alt-Right was underground

Until it felt it found

White House allies.

Charlottesville tragedy

Fits Alt-Right strategy:

Make the headlines for the world to see

Neo-Nazis rise.



The Klan now needs no hood

Because it’s understood

They helped Trump win.

45’s in a bind

Can’t publicly malign

White supremacy of any kind.

Bannon has a grin.


Potus coerced to pan

Bigotry of the Klan,

And Alt-Right, too.

Hate groups called out by name

But backtracks with the claim

The “Alt-Left” has to share the blame

Follows Bannon’s cue.


My Country ‘Tis of Thee

Rejecting bigotry

Of thee I sing.

May the sins of our history,

And the hope of our future be

Reconciled for posterity

And Let freedom ring.


NOT fake news.
