We Need to “Stand up” for America…

It has been a growing trend in recent years, especially after the 2016 election to find any way possible to disparage the country. This isn’t the usual healthy criticism America needs to hear to improve itself, but has become an increasingly one sided partisan attack! A wider trend can be seen in criticizing Western culture and civilization in general, but as far as America goes, it’s only been heating up and we seem to be at the pinnacle of it. Most reasonable Americans can see it happen pretty obviously, but for the truly uninformed, I provide some major examples:

Behind every great country is its history, both good and bad. America like everywhere else has had its good and not so good chapters and will continue to do so. No one denies that racism, sexism, discrimination etc… has made dark stains on our past in a variety of ways, but now it’s trendy to forget all the great strides we made to rectify those past mistakes and create a much better future for all Americans. In our schools, we now spend more time criticizing the Founding Fathers for views we find outdated by 21st century standards rather than focus on the enlightenment ideals of freedom and a democratic society that make up an integral part of our national identity today: A nation founded on the principles of freedom. Of course many of their views are rightfully outdated, such as slave ownership or women’s roles, but we have to remember they lived in a different time and culture and we’d be delusional to think we are at the moral zenith whereas our ancestors were backwards bigots with no gray area in between. Point is, we are ALL products of our time whether we realize it or not.

What makes a country great is not necessarily how few mistakes it makes, but how it chooses to address them and improve, and we have made immense strides in our development. I’m not old by any stretch of the imagination, yet I’m old enough to remember learning about America in a positive light in addition to not sugarcoating over the bad parts of its history. Now however, schools are teaching US history through the “woke” lens of seeing the country as a continuing cesspit of systemic and structural racism, sexism, and discrimination. Instead of focusing on the great strides made in the Civil Rights Movement, the emphasis now is on how bad Jim Crow was and white people are. Instead of focusing on the drafting and signing of the Declaration of Independence and the importance of the Constitution, we now have to focus on all the un-woke skeletons in the Founding Fathers’ closets then “cancel” them for being bigots! Not to mention, history is full of nuance and gray areas, and people make choices that in hindsight was the wrong choice yet if one looks, one can understand why they made that choice in the heat of the moment. Some of our less than stellar moments also arose in those circumstances, yet instead of trying to see ourselves in their shoes, we are now taught to condemn America for making hard calls that we can conveniently criticize having information they lacked at the time. It’s one thing to recognize when our country was not so great, but that doesn’t mean it hasn’t done some extraordinarily great things that we can all be proud of.

Coming around to the present, is it just me, or have you also noticed that almost any expression of patriotism is twisted into unhealthy nationalism and even a “dog whistle for white supremacy” by the Left? Sounds crazy? Apparently not for those like MSNBC contributor Mara Gay who was triggered by sight of pickup trucks sporting American flags which according to her, sent the message that the country belongs to white conservatives and no one else! Sadly she’s not the only one with those views, as the mere sight of our country’s flag is enough for the woke among us to scream “white supremacy!”. Even the word “patriot” is now a code word for the alt-right according to the Leftist media. Showing pride in our country, and also those who defend it is now distorted into something ugly by the Left, who only wish to “deconstruct” everything foundational to our national identity. Even something as simple as standing for the National Anthem is now politically charged! In light of that, it’s no wonder many on the far Left even call for cancelling the 4th of July as a “white supremacist, sexist, racist etc…. nation is nothing to celebrate!” and America is only great for white men. All American apple pie apparently is also racist and nationalist now! If this sounds like a stretch, I invite you to read Left leaning opinion pieces and scroll through social media! Rightfully defending our country is seen as unjust, and some even go so far as to say we deserved 9/11! This clearly goes beyond valid criticisms of our country, instead being a one sided attack that only seeks to tear down our national pride and identity, deconstructing rather than constructively improving our remaining faults.

Perhaps even more concerning than a movement to suppress expressions of patriotism like the 4th of July, the National Anthem, displaying American Flags and such, is the Left’s various social agendas dismantling our core values. Our country was and still is known around the world as the place where you can work hard and achieve your dreams. People flock to the USA from poorer countries, war-torn countries and regimes where that simply isn’t the case. No, life is still hard and full of obstacles here too, but the opportunity to better yourself and the resources to do it are still second to none! However now to even acknowlege that is deemed un-woke as of course, we’re steeped in systemic racism and structural inequalities that make it literally impossible to overcome your odds. Yet, try telling that to the many disadvantaged people born here and abroad who came here and beat the odds! No one denies they have had to face far more obstacles, including poverty, bias and discrimination, but never the less they made it and are proud of the country that helped them succeed. The defeatist attitude that you can’t only leads to a society of people who have no motivation to better themselves and blame the system for all their obstacles rather than actively try to overcome them. Relatedly, values such as personal accountability are also under attack. If you can simply blame systemic racism, sexism, or the “cisheteropatriarchy” for all your mistakes such as your unwanted pregnancies, broken homes, unemployment, financial struggles, the fact you didn’t get the job or admission to college etc… then that absolves you of your own personal choices you could control despite other circumstances you couldn’t! Shifting the blame onto excuses of unsurmountable oppression has chipped away at our moral fiber as a nation has enabled a chronic welfare state, broken families and homes, cycles of violence and abuse and poverty, poorer health outcomes, learned helplessness, underachievement and untapped potential. NONE of which helps our country!

Of course, it can’t go without mention that the Left seeks to put America last instead of first! America first has been mischaracterized as militant nationalism and even white supremacy, when in fact, it’s the right of all nations to put their own interests ahead of other countries or groups. We let in thousands of illegals and refugees while our own citizens struggle. We ignore the dangers of rising crime rates and backwards values that actually ARE racist and sexist brought over by many who want to take advantage of our bounty yet don’t appreciate our country in return. I don’t blame people who are only here for a better life, and I welcome those who come with an open mind and grateful attitude to share the American Dream like many of our own ancestors. However, along with the good ones, come criminals trafficking drugs or fellow human beings, gangs, and those who resent us and want to undermine Western values. Sounds paranoid and extreme, but those so called sanctuary cities have skyrocketing crime rates, and an overflowing welfare state. Even if only productive families came who would help the country, we can only take so many and must look after those already here as legal citizens. No one has the right to just enter any country and demand its resources. There are ways to officially become citizens and many immigrants honor this and it’s unfair to them to just jump the line! Imagine if I randomly decided to go to Canada and demand they give me all their resources without becoming a Canadian citizen! If that sounds ridiculous then why isn’t it for America? Don’t even get me started on how we’re treated internationally by other countries and how we let them step all over us…

Most appalling of all though, is the trend of utterly dividing the country along identity lines. Conservative vs. Liberal. White vs. Black. Men vs. women. Gay vs. straight. EVERYONE vs. white men! In a nation whose motto is “out of many, one”, the surest way to utterly destroy America is to divide us against each other! We did that once, and the results ended in 600,000 Americans dead, more than WWI and WWII combined! While there haven’t been calls of a literal second civil war yet, the violence this division is stoking is an all too real threat. With racial tension at an all time high, and BLM and Antifa around there has been an increase in violent protests, looting and overall lawlessness. Even more frightening, they get a free pass to do all of the above as it’s politically undesirable to hold them accountable to the law. Looting hundreds of dollars worth of merchandise is now okay in the name of reparations! If that doesn’t sound like insanity I don’t know what is… Now, the latest attempt at utterly dividing America comes from Critical Race Theory. This is the worldview that everything can be seen through the lens of racial injustice and oppression at the hands of white people, and that our country is inherently racist at its core. White people must renounce their “privilege” and people of color are inherently oppressed. This is being taught in schools across the country to our children as well as in higher learning to brainwash the next generation and divide them. Is this healthy for anyone? To tell white children they’re oppressors? To tell children of color they’re inherently oppressed and cant go as far as their white peers? If you ask me, it’s a fertile field for resentment to grow on both sides! Instead of being one nation, we now have two separate national anthems and “activist athletes” who instead of thanking America for the opportunity to have achieved so much and come so far and represent America at the Olympics of all places, decide to protest it in defiance of what we stand for. Segregation may have ended physically, but it seems to be very much alive psychologically in the form of two separate Americas! Families are divided over politics, children estranged from parents, siblings on opposite sides, tensions in relationships, friends “unfriending” over a political debate, this division is tearing us apart at the most personal levels. Politics is no longer about ideals, but identity, and every little thing you do now puts you on one side or the other regardless of your own complex opinions! It’s a surprise we aren’t in another civil war!

In light of all this, what can we do? Our history, our values, our identity, our unity, it’s all being “deconstructed”! Reasonable Americans everywhere regardless of politics want a more unified country and less of the increasing polarization going on. I think it’s going to be unpopular with the woke crowd, but the solution is worth it: We need to take more of a hardline stance on standing up for our country. It means putting our collective foot down and saying NO to open borders, (Un)Critical Race Theory, defunding our police, sanctuary cities, welfare cradle to grave, the deconstruction of our values and culture, being pushed around internationally, seeing our country as a cesspit of racism and discrimination, presenting our history in a biased and partisan way, being afraid to fly our flag, stand for our anthem, celebrate our freedom and do all things American! Luckily some states are starting to do that, such as several banning Critical Race Theory from the school curriculum and “sanctuary” cities for 2nd amendment rights. We as citizens can do our part too; voting for candidates who are pro-America, passing laws that put America first, building communities with values that lift up, not keep us down, treating others with true equality, not being afraid to express our patriotism among countless ways to support our country. There is a growing backlash against the anti-American lunacy and we can all take a stand!

Instead of “kneeling” to the Left’s pressure to deconstruct and undermine America, let’s stand up for America, not just during the Anthem, but always!

  3. Greetings, and Good Morning to all my Followers, Readers, and Conservative Allies.

    This is a project where you can add your voice and encourage your fellow conservative allies to stay strong in these derisive and troubled times… Even if you take away nothing else from reading my blog but this, I hope the message stays with you that you’re not alone and there is a silent majority out there just like you waiting to find their voices too!
    “What I would like to say is not to be afraid to voice your opinions and stand up for what you believe. Don’t be afraid to speak your mind. Remind the Lefties who you know that it’s okay to agree to disagree. If those people in your life can’t except the differences you have politically, don’t keep them in your life. It’s a waste of time and effort and honestly it just holds you back. And remember “Black Lives Matter” is simply
    a slogan and nothing thing else. We ALL know that their lives matter, as so every one else’s lives. But the race hustlers tell us that anyone who dares to say “All Lives Matter” is not sympathetic to their cause! I say, if they fell that way, then it’s just too freaken bad. But Jerry Nadler has no quarms about telling us that Antifa is a “Myth” when everybody knows that they are a terrorist organization.

    Like I said, “Black Lives Matter” is a SLOGAN has NOTHING to do with anyone else, and it does NO denigrate anyone who dares to say “All Lives Matter” that it’s just another race hustle that weakens the cause of these so called “Protesters”. It has nothing to do with police reform, or police brutality. . It fails to distinguish between the use of excessive force such as the case of George Floyd’s killing, and the Thousands of other police man, and women. do we abolish the entire police force because of a few bad apples in the bunch? I don’t hear ANYBODY praising the Millions of Police man, and women that had performed all this heroic deeds, and who had saved the tens, of thousands of others. Like the Brave police who RAN into the World Trade Center when it was being destroyed by those Terrorists.
    Or the Heroic Police officer who stopping that armed teen at that Illinois high school, and saved all those lives. Or that Cop who charged towards the School shooting suspect and confronted him, head-on. Because of his heroic actions, countless lives were . Not to many people talks about the Blue Lives that Matter!
    So keep your conservative beliefs strong and never back down from a debate ,especially when those loud mouthed. whining, drama queen Democrat calls you a Racist, Sexist, and Homophobic, as they love to do.
    Always, always defend your right to do, say, think, and believe as YOU choose. And no matter what, don’t let anyone take away the Rights, and Freedoms that our Forefathers gave to you, ever. And don’t be afraid of speaking your mind, or of saying what you are of thinking.

    The so called “moderate” Democrats in both the Senate and the House have done very little, if anything at all to benefit the average Americans during their first 7 months of Mr. Delusional’s administration, and in the face of the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. These “moderates” that are actually Democratic Socialists have done no better than the Republicans who were working around-the-clock during Donald Trump’s administration and had a list of accomplishment a mile long. And soon after the Coronavirus began to spread across the Country, and the other Nations, President Trump worked all day, and night, and his efforts let to the Vaccines that we have today. Make NO mistakes about it, if it weren’t for Trump we, and the rest of the world wouldn’t have these Vaccines today.

    Fortunately, the 81+ million Americans that voted for Biden have always known better than to listen to the endless crock of bull regurgitated by the lying, Zombi-in-chief. So, while the corporate controlled Democrats pander to the heads of Big Business and the billionaires, they may win the hearts of the fat cats, but they’re inviting their voters to stay home from the polls on Election Day and throw family barbecues, because I know damb well that most of the real Truman Democrats will NOT vote to return Delusional Joe, and, or that Moron Camala back to the White House. .

    The Mainstream Media has completely ignored 99 Percent of President Trump’s accomplishments and all of the positive things that he has achieved while in office.
    Instead, they’ve decided to focus all of their time waging a war against President Trump, his supporters and the MAGA agenda. They have committed more Phoney Investigations . More “Hoax’s” and more lies about him then Andrew Cuomo has told.
    The truth is that Donald J. Trump has achieved more for America in 3 years than the Clinton, Obama and Bush administrations did in ALL their years in office.. It really makes you wonder if those past presidents have even been trying at all!?

    You may not have realized just how amny things President Trump had accomplished because of the media’s efforts to hide, or minimize his accomplishments.

    Many of President Trump’s accomplishments you won’t see mentioned on Television News at all, as the bias Media goes out of there way to avoid putting President Trump in a positive light, and instead go out of their way to portray him as a Menace, Liar, and a Narcissistic. So when there is “Pro Trump” news in the news, they will create another story which will then quickly bury the real story. Just like they have been BURYING the Andrew Cuomo stories, and ALL the evidence that they have on Hunter Biden presented on National TV. Bur Delusional Joey Denys it all. Yes, Ole Senile Joey refuses to admit the truth or existence of anything that Hunter did. No wonder, anyone with a Brain full of Mush wouldn’t remember it.

    The loss of the White House, the loss of the Senate and the Majority in the House of Representatives. has the Republican leadership at a loss beyond imagination . And it has given Speaker Nancy Pelosi a free hand to Point her boney finger at everything that she can dream up including her favorite topic THE RIOT ON JANUARY 6th. Fancy Nancy is not only “Ludicrous” bur as wicked and dishonest as anyone could ever dream of being. .She has rewritten the event to be the worst attack on America in two Centuries and pinned the death of four police officers who were brutalized by the mob of Donald Trump’s supporters, and twisted the facts to prove it. And has now started yet ANOTHER one of her Famous Investigations to prove it. With only having ONE SIDE OF THE STORY being told.
    Old Scary face Nancy is not going to get away with it, the American people are not that stupid to believe her Fairy Tales, not again!
    The Democrats are going to lose like they never have before….look it up for yourself and stop with the NUT-JOB, FAKE News stories….why do Liberals have to lie to themselves and try to convince themselves while knowing that they are committing another Hoax.?….They’d so better if they would find one lie and stick with it.

    The Voters are watching, watching the Gas Prices and Skyrocketing Inflation, the Administration handing out Free Money, the People are staying home rather than going to work, the ENORMOUS, and DANGEROUS CRISIS at the Boarder, and the Vice President handing out Cookies rather tan dealing with it. The Super Spreader theat they have created by allowing and PUTTING Positive Covid, Coronavirus diseased people on Busses and transporting them all over America, while telling us who took the Vaccine that we are going to need to wear those stupid Masks again.
    The latest J.D. Power report says that the average price for a new vehicle in the BIDEN/HARRIS economy is projected to be $41,044, a 17% Biden/Democratic Increase over Last Year Seventeen Percent! Did your income go up Seventeen Percent? I’, betting it didn’t.

    They don’t give a DAMN about us, all that Nancy and her stooges want is another January 6th WITCH HUNT.

    Donald Trump told us that this would happen if Biden won.
    We were ALL told what was going to happen if the Socialist’s won. And it is happening. Remember this…..when we get total Socialism, everything will not only go up, but things will be hard to get. Remember what happened during the Virus scare. And there won’t be enough milk, bread etc. . Going to the store and seeing a percentage of the products going up in price or getting less for the same amount of money is disgusting. This is pure Progressive doctrine. Taxes will increase as pay increases that just keeps even with inflation and people will also move into higher tax brackets. So theres your choice when you go to the voting polls.

The Politically Correct people sounds like a bunch of preachers . They still can’t believe he said it. But it’s the truth, and the truth is what the voters want to hear (for a change) .Delusional Joey Biden’s first 7-8 months have been the worse of any American President in history, and has reached a level of mental derangement never seen before in a world leader in history…and he must be impeached by the new Republican House in 2022 or I don’t know what will happen to this One Time Great Country if he is not. However the trouble we have is that if he IS impeached, then we will have Harris as our President, and I honestly think that she is even worse.
    So it won’t matter whether Biden stays or goes. Hell, at least the guy is good for Comic Relief, and just about every day he makes himself, ans his party look like crap.
    To Make This Country Great Again,, first we’d need to start with the puppeteers, Obama, Clinton, Pelosi, Schumer,, Alexander “O” Cortez , etc……..
    exterminate those vermin and then you can just impeach Biden and throw his disgusting Son into jail where he belongs. That’s what the 25th Amendment is for.
    Because if we don’t do anything, but just sit around and watch these people do their dirty work, the End of America Is In Sight! We already saw the beginning, with Burning, and Banning books, even Children’s books, Certain Pancake Syrup Banned because of a picture of a Black Women on its bottle, Imprisoning Political Dissidents, Raiding their home in the middle of the night, or asking for Papers, Riots in our Streets, Fixing Elections, Closing Private Businesses, Critical Race Theory, our Athletics taking a “Knee” when our own Anthem, is being Played, and our Flag is displayed!
    Law Officers standing around and just watching while Looters invade local shopping stores. Special Groups Rioting as “Domestic Terrorism” and being called “Peaceful Protesting” linked to “Antifa and Black Lives Matter” and other similar groups

    We have seen Donald Trump take a lot of abuse because of that remark about Mexican Bad Guys, for what? For “insulting” Mexicans? That’s a load of bull, and everyone knows it. What he said did NOT apply to ALL Mexicans, but to some of them who ILLEGALLY crossed our boarder, to peddle their drugs, and do harm to our country. Despite all the attacks from the mainstream media, the heard of 15 other Republican candidates, and the vicious attacks for the progressive lunatics, Donald Trump continues to surge in the polls, and continues to be the Front-runner for 2024..
    None of that matters…his message of giving AMERICA BACK TO AMERICANS is exactly what the American voters both Right-winger and yes even Left-winger want to hear.
    And a final note to all you Liberals and “Progressives”, no one ever lost an election because of a Bad Hair-style! There’s no way that the Dem’s can win without cheating
    And if you are still so Gullible to think that Biden received 81 million votes, then I think that you are beyond helping, and are as Delusional as he is.
    And a word about the Kneeling, or Disrespecting our Anthem, and our Flag at the Olympics.
    To kneel, the first thing you need is a small head on a large body.
    If you’re kneeling for “Racial Justice”, or because “You. And Your People are oppressed” Listen up Einstein, you are just an Idiot
    Second thing is you recognition you can’t bring attention to yourself by winning, so you invite attention through other methods.
    You have to be a hypocrite.
    You have to be ignorant, and disrespectful.

The American people are on the verge of revolt, they have had more than they can bear of the current Bidone/ Harris Presidency. And they looking for someone who will and can do what they have been wanted done for many years now…Protecting Our Elections!
    Trump speaks for the “silent majority” of Americans who are frustrated with the direction that the country is going in and want it stopped right now. The tide needs to turn, and it starts right now!
    Remember the speech that Richard Nixon gave when he gave reference to “The Silent
    Majority”? Well The Silent Majority” is back, and “we’re going to take the country back,” Trump said “We’re going to make America great again”..Again!

  9. I’m just curious, and I hope that you are as well. Lets ask this hypothetical question…. Let’s say that this young man that comes form Mexico, or any other one of those countries that these “ILLEGAL “ Migrant young men comes from, amd he is all alone, with NO money in his pocket, and as most cases he can’t can’t speak English, and doesn’t know anyone here in America to live with, or th help him, but he gets on one of Biden’s Buses, and gets dropped off in some big city Amd like I said, he doesn’t have and friends, or family here… But like a good guy, he starts looking for a job. But like we know, it’s going to be very heard to get a Job, not speaking English, So he gets absorbed into America as Biden allowed that to happen.
    MY QUESTION IS, where the heck does he go, and how the heck does he get along, with out a place to live, or money to feed himself,?
    What does he DO? Are we importing more Homeless people to live on our Streets? To add more Filth to our Cities?
    Are we importing the Prisoners that these other countries want to get Rid Of? Are these “Migrants” Shop Lifters, Burglars, or worse? Maybe Rapists, or Murderers? Are they Stable? Are they Sick? We already know them many of them are Covid Positive, and sick, and possibly, or PROBABLY Super Spreaders… So what’s to become of them will they work so cheaply that they will take the Jobs away from Americans?

    Simone Biles who many say is the greatest gymnast of all time, withdrew from the Tokyo Olympics team final competition.

    It is being said that she Quit the Olympics due to Pressure from Black Lives Matter To Protest the National Anthem!
    It was reported that Simone was heard telling her team mates that she couldn’t handle the pressure on her to protest the National Anthem. She was heard telling her team that Black Lives Matter was bullying her and threatening to “Cancel Her” if she refused to protest.

    After a long battle between Black Lives Matter and Simone Biles over protesting and disgracing our country, The Greatest Gymnast ever buckles to the pressure of the Evil Black Lives Matter organization. Simone walked out on her team and on the country due to bullying and credible threats against her from Black Lives Matter and the Black Lives Matter

  11. If you tuned in to that Academy Award show yesterday aka the Pelosi January 6th “insurrection” hearings , you were pretty much disappointed. Oh yeas, there was plenty of tears, and plenty of ONE SIDED testimonies’, and plenty of “Painful “memories. More than enough to make grown Police Officers Cry like babies. But were there any rebuttals? If there were, I surely didn’t see, or hear them.
    Somehow I felt that those hearings weren’t there to find the TRUTH, but to but the blame, and the shame on Donald Trump. Why? Oh that’s simple, because the Democrats, and the Socialists are so afraid that this Delusional, Senile, Mental Patient might somehow have to face The Former President again, or the Inept Vice President might instead. So much for Honest Elections.

    .If you find that you just need to watch that Circus Side Show about what happened on January 6th … and watch Adam Schiff, and those Big Tough Capital Police Officers CRYING while testify, about the “Mobs of Trumps Supporters” that stormed into the building….. I guess that they just FORGOT to say that they NOT ONLY LET THEM IN, BUT THEY WAVED TO THEM TO HURRY UP AND COME RIGHT IN.. They even held the Gate Open for them to come into the Capitol building. They even had casual conversations with them inside the Senate Chamber. Some of them had face paint, and carried flags. But for the U.S. Capitol Police force, who were supposed to be CHECKING ID’s and CHECKING for Guns, and Weapons Why were they taking selfies with the “Protesters instead?
    Instead of being responsible for enforcing the law, it looked as if they were having a good time. . That’s it. Now they’re calling for ideological inquisitions. That’s unacceptable. It should make you very nervous

    What I found to be very interesting was that Michael Fanone who was SO upset over this entire thing and sobbing like a 2 year old, didn’t even mention experiencing anything upsetting, or feel any trauma last summer during his time on the Capital Police force. Remember it was just last summer that rioters set Fire to St. John’s Church just a few steps from the White House. Where dozens of cops were injured, by having Bricks thrown at them among other things. The Secret Service had to escort the President out of there to safety. . Also no one seem to be upset few weeks later, when a mob assaulted Senator Rand Paul and his body guard as they left the White House. When a Black Lives Matter rioter named Brennen Sermon punched a Police Officer who was trying to get Senator Paul to safety. The injury was so severe that the officer needed surgery to fix the injery on his face…

    And no one called the Black Lives Matter Lunatic’s then, as they called the Trump Supporters at the Capital. Adam Kinzinger didn’t cry thinking about Senator Rand Paul Liz Cheney didn’t go on CNN to denounce Black Lives Matter . No one was put in Jail’s Solitary Confinement. In fact these RIOTERS were only detained briefly for their Looting, and Burning down Property, and destroying Police cars, and then released . NOT ON E of those Black Lives Matter thugs sat and rot in solitary for six months and still counting like so many of the Trump supporters on January 6th. Notice a difference? No one in congress seems to care about them.
    A so called witness who wasn’t even there gets to tell stories? Pelosi select who asks the questions, and rejects a KEY person from testifying, because she didn’t like something that he once said about her? .
    THIS IS THE VERY DEFINITION OF A KANGAROO COURT.
    And why didn’t anyone mention anything about the retired Black officer David Dorn, who killed in the St. Louis David Dorn Protest?
    David Dorn had put in 44 years of service as a Police Officer, and later hs serviced his Community while he was retired. On June 2, during the George Floyd “Protests” or RIOTS , David Dorn, a 77 year old man went to help a friend who was a Pawnshop owner and who was being robbed and was killed wile standing in front of his friends shop trying to protect it from those monsters that KILLED him, and set the shop on fire. .

    A National Police Association spokesman wondered why no one mentioned the hundreds of police officers who were injured in last summer’s riots or those who were killed. Here’s one of the hand picked Capitol Police officers who testified Tuesday

    No one mentioned the FACT that Capitol Officer Harry Dunn and his daughter at a BLM protest in Washington DC were seen at the David Dorn “Protest”, where they both were holding up their hand-made signs praising Black Lives Matter.
    And this is who testified? No one saw anything Bias about this?
    Black people are being murdered at an historic rate all over in America’s big cities and NONE of these people care.. Is the only problem in America the Capital Building? Is it all about politics to them?

  12. After watching those Capital Cops Crying, as they testified, I just had to think about Ashli Babbitt. And think about the
    obvious double standard in deciding if a police officer should be charged with violating a use-of-force policy.

    There is an obvious double standard in deciding if a police officer should be charged with violating a use-of-force policy

    On January 6th an unarmed 5′ 2″, 110 pound Caucasian female was shot by police with minimal media coverage and even less outrage.
    A Google search reports approximately 1,060,000 results for Ashli Babbitt and 293,000,000 for George Floyd.

    Ashli Babbitt was a decorated Air force veteran and a Trump supporter.

    George Floyd, despite what the media is trying their best to portray him as a Hero, George Floyd, was a Career Criminal. George Floyd’s family received a $27 million settlement…. A TWENTY SEVEN MILLION DOLLAR SETTLEMENT!. Even that Ultra-Liberal Bleeding Heart Barbra Streisand donated an unknown number of shares of Disney stock to his daughter. Kanye West donated $2M for an education plan for her. She also received a full scholarship from Texas Southern University in honor of her father’s “powerful legacy.” The outrage was international, and several U. S. cities burned resulting in $2 billion in damage and 12 people murdered.
    NOBODY DONATED ANYTHING TO ASHLI BABBITT’S FAMILY, OR NEXT OF KIN.
    Both individuals were involved in a criminal act. Floyd was resisting arrest and his fate would have been different if he had cooperated. Babbitt was not given an opportunity to Resist Arrest, but was just Shot to Death on the spot. .Ashli was naive enough to follow ANTIFA infiltrators that lured her into the capitol. It really looks like a setup that the Capital Cop shot her and not any of the ANTIFA that were breaking the windows, or anything else.
    Not even for putting their feet on Nancy Pelosi”s desk.
    So where is the justice for Ashli? Where are the Statues, or Paintings on the walls? Or the Streets named after her? You’d think a 12 year Air Force Veteran would deserve something? But she didn’t even get an Honorable Mention

  21. I wrote my comment to the Lady of Reason’s most recent post just before the unrest in Cuba began. Other commenters mentioned that many of the Cuban protestors flew the American flag as a symbol of freedom while Antifa and BLM burn the flag in America’s streets. That merits further discussion. Consider the risks the Cuban protestors took flying the American flag. Despite the threat of prison, torture and death, they dared fly the stars and stripes because they knew it represents freedom and defiance of tyranny. The Cubans are not unique in flying the American flag during freedom protests, just the most recent. Hong Kong protestors did it last year when the PRC decided to end what freedom remained there.

    The true experts on socialism are the Cuban people and others who suffer under communist oppression. Cuba’s proximity to the U.S.A. and the regular communication Cubans have with their relatives here, put them in a unique position to compare the two systems. By flying the American flag, the freedom protestors in Cuba showed which they consider to be the better one and the price they pay for flying it, show the vehemence with which they hold that view. We, who grew up in a free society, take our freedom for granted, while those who are deprived of it, such as the Cubans, prize freedom as they prize light and air.

    The Lady of Reason mentioned how MSNBC contributor Mara Gay and other leftists are triggered by the sight of the American flag. That’s something that Ms Gay and her fellow leftists have in common with the Cuban regime and communist oppressors everywhere. Sadly, I suspect they aren’t bothered by that. Perhaps a conversation with a few Cuban refugees might provide them with some valuable insight.

  26. Leftwing protesters nowadays think nothing of toppling statues, burning buildings, smashing windows, looting, attacking police and Trump supporters. But what would these inferior protestors have done back in the 60s & 70s, when I was a leftwing protestor, protesting the Vietnam War ? The answer is NOTHING.

    That’s because these cowards generally only protest in cities with sympathetic, Democrat mayors, where they figure that can commit crime, and the police will be ordered to stand down, and leave them alone. In 2016, Black Lives Matter blocked traffic in downtown Tampa, endangering dozens of people in blocked cars.
    Worthless, wimp, Democrat mayor Bob Buckhorn let them get away with it.

    Interesting how, with Buckhorn now gone, replaced by former police chief Jane Castor, BLM now is nowhere in sight. Here’s where protestors are showing up and going nuts – New York, Chicago, Seattle, Portland, San Jose, Minneapolis, Atlanta, Washington DC, Denver, Philadelphia, Boston, Kenosha, Dallas, Detroit, Los Angeles, Trenton, Sacramento, Louisville, St. Louis, Phoenix, Oakland, Columbus, Des Moines, Atlantic City.

    2 dozen cities with violent protests, arson, looting, rioting – ALL with Democrat mayors.

    In May 1970, I attended a Vietnam War protest in Washington, DC. I remember seeing a cop smash his billy club into a protestor’s leg, who had spit at the cop, breaking the leg, and the sound of it sounded like a shotgun blast. So many protestors were arrested, that the jails filled up immediately, and they had to set up a concentration camp inside of a locked, fenced area, that filled up with hundreds of protestors, many of them injured and bleeding.

    A year earlier, in Washington DC, at another Vietnam War protest, cops were equally unsympathetic to protestors who went beyond peaceful protest. A year before that, in Chicago, cops made mincemeat out of violent protestors, no sympathy from then mayor Daley, and in 1967, it was about the same at a large protest in Washington DC at the Pentagon. Would today’s Antifa, BLM et al leftist radicals been on the front lines for those encounters ? Not hardly, because they would have been decimated, just like they would be in any conservative city today, and they know it.

    So why do I say they are “phony” ? Because they claim to be protesting about police brutality, the killings of unarmed black men. They aren’t so stupid that they don’t know that the killing of black men by police have been entirely justified, and caused by the stupidity of the men who were shot. Take your pick > Michael Brown, Philando Castille, Terrence Crutcher, Jason Blake, Alton Sterling, etc , etc – all ignoring directions of police to comply, resisted arrest, did not keep their hands visible, etc.

What gives me hope is, on a macro scale, the adulterers are accomplishing very little, if anything at all l. Yes, they have their little victories, but aren’t winning over the majority. Not at all a big return on their efforts.

  29. As people in Cuba begin to protest their government because of shortages and long lines and a failing economy, etc., government officials in Cuba blame the US for all their ills.

    So is the US to blame? On the one hand, Marxists want to destroy the US, but on the other hand, seem to complain when the US does not help them economically or boycotts them economically. Why then do they want to destroy the US economy that they seem to need?
    Or riot in our streets and beat up Asians, Jews and the Elderly for NO Reason? Why are they burning down the Cities where they live? WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH THESE PEOPLE??
    It’S beginning to look as if’s just a pure Domestic Terrorist group that has a free license to do whatever they want to, without any repercussions what so ever. In fact we see our own Politicians Bailing them out IF they are even caught and arrested!

    Either that or there is some other hidden way the US is blamed for destroying Cuba
    While Protesters in America are Burning the America Flag, the Flag that is the a symbol of freedom, and liberty, the Flag that every real American loves but often takes for granted. Today’s Protestors in Cuba: are flying, and waving the American Flag and are even putting their lives on the line willing to die for the freedom, liberty, & justice that the American Flag represents. Those anti-American IMBECILES at the Olympics in Japan could learn a lesson from these Freedom Hungry Cubans.
    These stupid, Anti-American Moon Bats think that it’s “COOL” to turn their backs, or to “Take a Knee” during the playing of Our National Anthem, because THEY ARE OPPRESSED! Their so “Oppressed” that they are living in Million dollar homes and drive Exotic Cars. While signing MULTI MILLION dollar contracts to throw a ball around!
    And the only response from Joey Biden is that he condemns any violence. There is no support for any of these people who are willing to die for their Freedom as our Delusional President basically ignores what is gong on there.
    I think that it’s a no- brainer that Biden should help the Cuban people in some way.. , maybe a small a military action into Cuba that wouldn’t take more than a couple of hours before everything is done…the only reason Biden won’t do it is because maybe he is Communist himself? Who know? He certainly supports China.

    I can not understand how Biden, and the democrats can deny entry to Cuban refugees but accept others illegally STORMING across our southern border. It’s the height of hypocrisy? It’s just not clear that those Cuban refugees face certain death if they are forced to return, while these SICK, INFECTED migrants are give Bus rides across the USA.
    Remember the Elian Gonzalas-Bill Clinton case? Remember the sean where his relatives in Miami wanted to to keep him there, and what happened when Elian’s father and Miami relatives couldn’t come to an agreement, Bill Clinton, and his Deputy Attorney General Eric Holder, and Janet Reno, with a team of ARMED immigration officials Conducted to a Dawn Raid on their Miami house, and snatched the Terrified Elian being snatched from his Uncle’s arms at Gunpoint.
    Could it be because CUBANS TEND TO VOTE REPUBLICAN when they become citizens. Let that sink in…Joe Biden would rather let these people be tortured to death in Cuba than have them potentially vote against his party some day when they became able to vote… And that Biden, and Pelosi know that they won’t vote for the Communist/Socialist loving Democrats.

    The communist dictatorship in Cuba has been seeing its biggest anti-government protests in decades. Thousands marched on Havana’s promenade and elsewhere on the island on Sunday to demand President Miguel Diaz-Canel step down, shouting slogans like “freedom” and “unite.” There were also a smaller number of pro-government protesters that were chanting “Fidel,” referring to Fidel Castro, Cuba’s former long-time Dictator.

    Even after it was revealed that a suspected spy for the Chinese Communist Party.was working there for 4-5 years Eric Swalwell refused to say if he had sex with a suspected Chinese SPY who previously slept with 2 American Mayors for an Intelligence campaign.
    After ALL of this kind of BEHAVIOR from Fancy Nancy Pelosi, and even after Fancy Namcy was caught going into a Supposedly CLOSED Hair Salon that was “CLOSED “ by orders from Nancy the “Innocent Until Proven Guilty”, also known as the “Presumption of Innocence” does NOT apply as long as the Subject id Donald J. Trump.
    Forget about the fact that the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments both touch on “Due Process.” Due Process means that the Government cannot deprive you of your Freedom or your Rights, or your Property unless they go through the right processes. It is understood that your American RIGHT to be Presumed Innocent until Proven Guilty..

    When the Democrats in Congress were exposed as having not only having protected sexual predator politicians in Congress but had created a committee in Congress whose wole job was to use tax dollars to pay for the silence of their victims for DECADES, Democrats and their surrogate media quietly down-played the entire scandal while Democrats involved quietly retired, running like rats abandoning a ship.

    And Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh is the perfect example. Democrats, who praised his expertise as a judge before he was nominated to the Supreme Court, then tried every trick in the Dirty Book and attempted to destroy Kavanaugh completely, and Destroy his family, his career, and his ability to get another job, all based on the their “Presumption of GUILT” until proven Innocent..a complete twist of his Rights. .
    Even Mazie Hirono the Senator from Hawaii was ready to throw Justice Kavanaugh to the Wolves.

    But they failed, and failed MISERABLY.
    But Innocent Until Proven Guilty’ Doesn’t Apply to Conservatives , not by this lastest Pack of Democratic Giggling Hyenas!
    And now Biden’, and his latest pick to head the civil rights division Catherine Lhamon wants to strip Americans of their legal and Constitutional Right of ‘Innocent until Proven Guilty.. And Biden wants her to be THE HEAD OF THE CIVIL RIGHTS DIVISION? Where is Donald Trump’s “Civil Rights”?
    And if you noticed, those Progressive Bidenistas who laughed about the complaints about vote counts in those four or five Swing States, seems to have become obviously quiet.
    And while Biden supposedly won more votes than anyone in history (despite not being able to get out people to fill his events), he “won a record low of 17 percent of counties; he only won 524 counties, as opposed to the 873 counties that Obama won in 2008.” But supposedly had more total votes, how do they figure that?
    Could there have been a little cheating going on???
    And why late on election night did swing states stop counting votes when Trump was way ahead? And why were some observers stopped from getting to viably observe the counting?

    What had been happening to MY Country while I blinked my Eyes? Things have been
    getting more, and more ridiculous every day. How can “innocent until proven guilty” even be up for debate?

  32. Portland police officers will no longer be directed to stop drivers for low-level traffic violations.

    The funny thing about traffic stops, as most any police officer will tell you, is that they frequently lead to arrests for far more serious crimes. Handing someone a ticket for a cracked windshield might score the city twenty bucks in revenue, but when the driver turns out to have multiple felony warrants or their trunk is full of illegal firearms, you’ve accomplished a lot more in terms of public safety.

    Portland properly has a lot of problems, but “TOO MANY TRAFFIC STOPS” is not one of them, it’s probably several hundred places down on the list. The government has lost control of portions of the city and their police are regularly under attack. Law and order has taken a beating and Ted Wheeler hasn’t done anything about it. Does he really think that this announcement is going to appease the people who are literally and figuratively trying to abolish the police? It’s a fool’s errand.”

    Also, during the terrorist Antifa and Marxist BLM riots Democrats bailed out of jail terrorists who not only engaged in looting, destruction of public / govt property, and arson but those who were also arrested for attempting to murder / burn local police and federal agents alive …. while demonizing and inciting violence against police officers.

    The failed Marxist Democrat, and may I now add “Independent’s “Defund The Police” policy campaign is only part of the reason crime has exploded all over the US – their refusal to enforce laws and put criminals behind bars where they belong has emboldened the criminals. . So Portland Police, as well as their Court system are failing to do their duty.
    After two months of these Black Lives Matter, and Antiva THUGS , looting, violence and outrageous protests, while Democratic politicians have been sleeping.
    What is wrong with these so called Law Makers? Did their mothers drop them ALL on their heads or are they all just naturally stupid?

  40. Joe Biden’s Presidency is an absolute disaster. Everything that this Drooling, Delusional President has done is destroying the United States at its very foundation. But hopefully this report could be the end of Joe Biden.

    Ever since being inaugurated, Joe Biden has been doing all he can to make sure America is transferred to some place unrecognizable. Whether it’s infecting the Military with Critical Race Theory or negotiating with terrorists on the international stage, Biden is slowly changing America into his Socialist “Utopia.” But one of his biggest blunders comes from the Southern Border.

    While Donald Trump was President, he oversaw a massive enforcement of our nation’s immigration laws. Unfortunately, Joe Biden is so rabidly against Trump that he reversed course when he became president and all but KILLED all of his accomplishments, not even caring if they were Good, or Bad.. The result has been an enormous border CRISIS where Tens of Thousands are held in cramped conditions, and Thousands more were released on to the Streets of America, many of them were Covid positive, .

    And Americans have had enough of Biden fumbling the ball. A new Harvard/Harris poll just came out that showed 80% of Americans believe illegal immigration is a serious issue that needs more attention from Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.

    Not only that, but “68% said that signals from Biden’s White House are encouraging illegal immigration, and 55% believe that former President Donald Trump’s border closing policies should have been left in place” according to the Washington Examine,
    Yup, Ole Uncle Joey Biden is restoring relations with our “allies” all right, So instead of them paying THEIR SHARES for NATO, they now go back to chiseling us, and paying less than their agreed to 2% of GDPs, WHILE WE GET STUCK WITH PAYING THEIR BILL. At G7, the weakling Biden RIDICULOUSLY “took the knee,” allowing the Europeans to once again take advantage of us. And showed the entire world what a FOOL he is.
    While he stopped our pipeline putting 15 thousands of American workers out of jobs. And yet thet are telling us that 81 Million Moron voted for him? .

    The China Virus Vaccines that wouldn’t have even exist without Trump’s incredible Operation Warp Speed. Trump did the hard part. And then Biden did the the easy part and then CLAIMED that the entire process was his Idea! And you lefties believed that? Shame on YOU! .

    Ths Delusional Puppet Biden hand that MORON VP of his America is returning to Globalist, and turning the Country into a bunch of Anti-America Citizens aka TRASH!
    He is an abomination to the country. An absolute pathetic, disgrace to this country.
    All we hear from that Pathetic excuse for a President is “white supremacists”, and “Jim Crow” Who’s side is he on? And GOD help us if he is replaced by that Walking Moron Kamala Harris, or if he has a 2nd term He’s a nothing, a front, a puppet .

  41. I’m not sure we will find much rationality in many leftist arguments these days, but it is true that our Constitution guarantees the right of idiocy to every citizen. As to the origins of cancel culture, there can be little doubt that its development was intentional and purposeful. Who are these people who would tear down America? Why would they?

    Our history is replete with examples of opposition (across a wide range of issues). We have been able to remove most of the wrinkles in our history — correct the wrongs, as you’ve said. Not all of them, though, because there are some people in our very complex society who seek advantages for themselves in exaggerating contentious issues — or as my grandmother used to say, making mountains out of molehills.

    We cannot see into a man’s heart; we can only evaluate what he says and does. In a society consisting of 328-million people, there is no shortage of opinions. Mr. Jones is certainly entitled to believe that all whites are racists (even despite the incredible irrationality of such a position), and in that vein, standing up for America must mean an acknowledgment of his right to express idiotic opinions. But if Mr. Jones makes the leap from expressing an imbecilic opinion to burning down Portland, then a responsible society must assume a less tolerant position toward such unacceptable behaviors — if we are a nation of laws. Every generation has produced an unseemly movement; wokeness is just the latest example.

    Our society is complex and there no shortage of opportunities to “disagree” with one another. No one has ever made a productive change to the human ills that plague us while remaining outside the mainstream of society. Change is only possible from within society, which suggests tolerance, rational debate, and time. It would help if we had a federal government that concerned itself with its enumerated powers and left “social engineering” to the natural evolution of human society.

    We cannot solve our problems by hating one another. If we had the capacity for learning from history, then we would have learned (by now) that the Civil War failed to solve anything; it only propelled the hatred that led to the civil war an additional 100 years into the future. None of us has a clear view into the future, so maybe Mr. Lincoln didn’t know any better — but Mr. Obama should have known better. Should have, given his educational background, but didn’t. Thanks to Obama, we are now going into 14 years of social unhappiness, which at the very minimum should tell us that elections have consequences. We reap what we sow. Lately, we aren’t very good sowers.

    • Portland?? The civil rights and anti-war movements of the 60’s did far more damage to our cities. Portland didn’t “burn down” (couple blocks?).. and that’s to another point.. the exaggerations and “what aboutisisms” that somehow prove applicable comparisons just to feed the bias. Jan 6th was an insurrection and as a Marine you’d think you’d be incensed by that. Some person thinks all whites are racists. Well.. out of 328 million people there’s likely more than one. But do those people have the power to make decisions? Change society? Change your life? Change the country? Or are you afraid too many Americans just might believe that message and vote some radical into Congress? Where does that fear even come from? Are you suggesting there are “mindless” Americans who will follow any loud voice that makes a stink, to the numbers that will change the country.. Socialist, or some similar nonsense?
      Here’s where you and I differ… my faith is in the Constitution.. not MY interpretation of the Constitution.. not MY interpretation that certain leaders don’t follow MY interpretation of the Constitution… not MY perception of how the Constitution SHOULD be interpreted… and most certainly I don’t deify the Founding Fathers that their word is never to be doubted, challenged, or otherwise considered anything but saintly. They were the risk-takers of their day to create a better country, founded on human principles.. at risk of their lives… and it was NOT easy (and I don’t mean just fighting the Brits). That being said… I believe in the Constitution and all the institutions that have spawned from it. If people have done wrong to it then the document itself has the remedy. I certainly do not favor each and every decision of SCOTUS.. nor do I favor individual opinions of a few that serve… BUT.. I most certainly take each an every decision they make as final authority.. until such time social norms change that might force a future court to change. If we don’t like how government may or not be enforcing the Constitution.. or areas where we “think” government has gone to excess… then we hold people accountable for breaking the law, or, we use our vote.
      But consider this.. right now “fear” is the language being used around the nation. Yep.. we reap what we sow.. because we are human.

  44. As usual, I fully agree with the Lady of Reason. America is a great country and it is worth standing up for. Of course, it’s not perfect and that’s why we call it “The United States of America” instead of “Utopia” which means “nowhere.”
    Even our flaws are praiseworthy. Critics fault the founding fathers and the constitution because of slavery, but slavery has existed around the world from prehistoric times. So, at worst, the U.S. was not unique in that respect.
    On the other hand, America, along with Great Britain were pioneers in ending the slave trade.

    Granted, African Americans, were brought here in chains starting about 400 years ago. European and American slave traders purchased slaves from African slavers, That was a small portion of the African slave trade. Most African slaves remained in Africa or were sold to Arabs. Muslims, both African and Arab dominated the slave trade. For example, Timbuktu was the launching point for caravans from sub-Saharan Africa north to the Arab world with the three “golds;” ” white gold”, meaning salt, “yellow gold” referring to the metal and “black gold” meaning the slaves who carried the salt and gold and were sold along with them at the end of the journey.

    Without external compulsion, the U.S. outlawed the importation of slaves in 1808 and joined Great Britain in anti-slave trading patrols. The U.S. made slave trading a capitol crime and executed at least one ship captain for the offense. The U.S., again on its own, freed its slaves at the price of a terrible civil war. By comparison, North African slavers continued to raid Europe and beyond for its slave markets well into the 19th century, until Britain and others forced them to stop. Of course, the internal African slave trade persists to this day.

    It is typical of the race hustlers and other leftists that America, one of the leaders in abolishing the slave trade, is the subject for criticism while Africa and the Arab world seem to escape their attention. Of course the reason is that people in America are willing to listen to criticism and that all too often, race hustlers are rewarded for peddling their nonsense.

    For all their faults, the U.S. and Western Culture in general have proven quite praiseworthy. We have an objective measure of that, immigration. While American falls short of Utopia, it appears to be the preferred destination in the real world. We don’t see many people trying to get into third world dictatorships or the socialist paradises that the leftists consider so wonderful. On the other hand, we continue to experience an influx of people of all races from around the world, often at great cost and risk. Funny how so many people who are in a position to compare the U.S. with their homelands don’t seem to think that the great strides we have made are a delusion. Perhaps, that’s why immigrants often are the most enthusiastic in standing up for America.

    Ronald Reagan told of how he commented to a Cuban refugee that we don’t realize how lucky we are to be born here. The refugee said to him: “No, I’m the one who is lucky because I had a place to go. If America turns socialist, to where would you flee?” That’s the best argument I’ve heard for standing up for America.

Dissent can be the catalyst for change, improvement, etc. Without dissent would America have given up on slavery? I’m out so sure. You’re minimizing the struggle in America over slavery; “The U.S., again on it’s own….” That is just simple nonsense. It was years & years of arguing, debate, and violence even before the issue of slavery became so intense that states were willing to succeed from the Union over it. At one time the single largest asset in America’s Gross Domestic Product were slaves, that says a lot. Change only happens trough dissent, period. If everyone were content, nothing would ever change.

I remember when I was in elementary school (I’m 53), singing bastardized versions or our national anthem that was derogatory to white people. Showing national pride was frowned upon. Being all in your face patriotic was an *American* thing, and we weren’t like those rude, crude Americans (dissing the US was another popular thing among the “in” crowd). People have been making a big deal about things like the Residential schools and how our government treated indigenous peoples, as if it’s some new discovering. It’s been talked about for as long as I can remember. Even in a junior high textbook, there was a section on Canada becoming part of the US, complete with a hypothetical map. I remember Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba were portrayed as one giant state, with a mashup of the three names. According to that textbook, Canada was already a non-entity.

        Thankfully, I grew up in the boonies, and my parents were immigrants and survivors of WWII Poland. They were extremely proud of both their Polish heritage, and of being Canadian. My mother still goes on about how Canada is the best country in the world, in spite of our current Prime Minister. Me, I’ve become a Western separatist. The Canada I loved no longer exists.

For you to think we’ve made “great strides” to create a greater country for all is simply delusional. While GOP states perpetuate the Big Lie that the election was stolen from the Orange Orangutang and then use that lie to rig the election laws is just another sample of America’s basest racism. That’s all there is to it. The biggest racists of all, unfortunately for America, reside on the right side of the SCOTUS. They just don’t seem to think there are any issues at all for non-whites in America.

    • What really pisses me off is that many ICUs are full in some states so that means someone who has a heart attack or another major emergency will be turned away while someone who refused to get vaxxed is taking up a bed in ICU!
      A perfect example is what’s happening in New York because of their Crooked Governor Andrew Cuomo!

  47. Pretty much we all belong to some ideological, racial, physical appearance, genderized, economic, political,yada-yada, classification for doing things some “other” finds offensive. I’m a white European male (Ancestry tells me a Viking heritage.. so I very likely had ancestors who pillaged, looted and raped the cattle across Northern Europe).. which makes me, my race, my gender.. totally responsible for all the ills ever experienced in North America, nay, the world, and likely beyond… to all cultures, indigenous and imported. In fact, I am also a Baby Boomer, which makes me part of the generation that’s alleged to have caused all this “disgruntled-ness” since WW2.. just ask any GenZ’er or GenX’er. So, when it comes to feeling victimized these days across all the social spectrum… me, and others like me, are at the top of the heap. I have been so conditioned on watching what I say so as not to offend the other gender I am now completely proficient in pointing out such verbal violations with ’70’s & ’80’s game show hosts in past re-runs (“Did that letcherous Gene Rayburn just say that to that female contestant??”).
    My present job as a security guard at a county CPS office (because being a Senior now means I can’t hold my traditional educated and occupational job anymore.. I’m put out to pasture…) places me in relatively the same space as minors.. of all ages. This means I have to “protect” them and at the same time never, ever put myself in a position where I might be alone with them (especially teenagers) both for legal liability (not being a trained social worker) and of course… finding myself on some sexual predator list because of fanciful teenage angst against authority, their abusive parents, or life in general. So far, so good. Not to mention the uniform alone I wear just makes for an easy target for the next random shooting from some parent who wants their kid back, or a disgruntled employee here in the office. Best part.. I do it all for minimum wage. Hot damn, have I got it made!

    I actually enjoyed your rant, albeit I don’t share your ideology. My “thing” here is simply to point out that many times what we experience as a nation is the proverbial swing of the social pendulum to the extremes… and generally speaking things will find a center. Also.. in some ways each of us is a “victim” of something. Do yourself a favor… take a trip somewhere away from people (as best as you can do that) and go find some nature.. mountains, rivers (before they all dry up), the wide open spaces… very few things in life can help to re-boot one’s perspective than being humbled by nature. When you are standing in the middle of all that beauty… it makes one see that mankind is just bullshit…. and… it makes you appreciate being human and in being able to perceive the beauty that IS man. In the end we can all make that choice… either lead, follow, or get outta the way.
