This kind of groin attack is actually a war crime under the Geneva convention.

I mean, don't get me wrong, I love all of this.

But this is timely in that the panel of the Klan unmasking themselves as cartoonish fuckoffs, misfits and losers is doing something that the Charlottesville terrorist attack directly disproved: 'othering' the racists.

The lesson taken from that attack, by many, is that the racists aren't just hiding in their parents' basements or in poorly-dug bomb shelters. They're in your office, or stocking your shelves, or frying your burger. They're out there.

We've always known that they were out there. They're emboldened now because they feel like they have the White House on their side, but the hoods never fooled anyone. We know. That's why when they get brave and take off the masks, whether made of cloth or the safety of internet anonymity, the pushback against them is strong.

And let's not get it wrong here: they are cartoonish fuckoffs, misfits and losers. Even the most successful of them.

What's more, shaming people for their bodies ain't a good thing. Having a small chin isn't a moral failure. Yes they're terrible people, but that's kind of the point; we don't counter racists by holding ableism against them. If we're going to do the same sort of thing, why be progressive?

The part about fat old sows isn't very nice, either, to be wildly euphemistic.

I swear, it is just like Ennis to write a soliloquy when that scene should have gory mess.

I mean, Ennis is just totally backwards. He kills some characters off in the most violent ways, and then when he should kill certain characters off, he just gives them a long speech.

I get what you're saying, but honestly? I enjoy watching them be humiliated a lot more than if they were just obliterated in a shower of bullets and/or Jesse using the word to make them, I don't know, go hang each other one by one.

They're pathetic. And that's how I like them.

Yea - in this situation the humiliation works better. Dead folks become martyrs. Scared idiots shitting themselves don't.

Making them all shit themselves instead of just that one guy would have been a marked improvement on this scene.

And even people that shit themselves can still hate and spread hate. Dead people don't and the rest of them get the message.

Jesse killed a bunch of racist rednecks, his own family, who had literally tortured him his entire childhood, in the first story arc and for some reason he won't do it now. BS. He would have enjoyed putting these guys in the ground. I mean, he was just telling his Mom about it like two issues before this and she told him she was proud of him. This scene was just dumb.

"for some reason he won't do it now"

The reason is that at present Jesse is serving as an officer of the law, and as his deputy Cindy has kept reminding him, he needs to act at least kinda sorta vaguely within the parameters of the law,* which means not simply killing them all. When he killed Gran'ma, Jody and T.C., he was acting solely in his own capacity and indeed in self-defence.

*In real life, squeezing someone's balls until they bleed would most definitely not be kinda sorta vaguely within legal parameters for a law enforcement officer, but I give Jesse a pass here because even with Cindy having his back, he's outnumbered, so verbal threats alone wouldn't instill fear in them.

Jesse is literally surrounded by a a crowd of masked men who say they are going to kill him. Him killing them would be self-defense.

Maybe you are saying Jesse doesn't want a huge investigation or something but something tells me small-town sheriff Jesse could deal with it. Stranger things happen in this story.

Ah - this is beautiful to see. As someone who lives in Texas on the edge of Klan land - this is a lovely little fantasy.

Also I feel it's slightly on topic to mention the recent news I heard of folks in the Klan signing up for those genetic tests and discovering that they are not as white/pure/aryan as they told themselves. They are now reassuring themselves that the tests are all a lie, or seriously doing mental gymnastics over who is allowed or not to be part of them.
