The “Light-Skinned” Men Threat to America

by TIMOTHY KOECHLIN

After the explosion in West, Texas, witnesses across the country report having seen groups of “light skinned” men plotting to endanger innocent Americans.

There is mounting evidence that the explosion of a fertilizer plant in West, Texas — which killed 14 and injured more than 200 — was the result of “deregulation” and other extremist policies advocated by an extensive and powerful network of white men.  This cabal of white extremists (many of them also intolerant proponents of “Christianity”) has reportedly infiltrated America’s most powerful institutions – including the supreme court and both houses of congress — in large numbers, spreading their anti-government, anti-union, free-market “gospel.”

This vast, well-funded network is also known to have elaborate plans to stifle democratic participation, poison America’s air and water, deny health care to millions of Americans, and impose their extremist views on American children.  (Members of this network apparently refer to their extremist vision of America as “a good business climate.”)   These men are reportedly very heavily armed, and they are accumulating increasingly powerful weaponry at an alarming rate.   This confederation of organizations and individuals appears to be backed by an extensive, shadowy network of wealthy donors – although detailed information about these donors is difficult to find.

Careful observers of this movement believe that the explosion in Texas is not an isolated event.  Elaborate, coordinated plots to endanger and dis-empower workers, women, people of color, homeowners, tenants, retirees, anyone born outside the USA, the LGBTQ community and others are apparently widespread — extending across the USA and beyond.

Law enforcement agencies have been criticized for not monitoring this group more carefully.  Progressive, egalitarian, and anti-racist organizations are asking for the public’s help.   If you see any suspicious “light skinned” men, please alert your friends and neighbors.  These extremists are often seen driving expensive cars or carrying expensive briefcases, and they are often accompanied by lawyers, lobbyists, and anti-choice activists.

If you see something, say something!
