Hey Yale, y’all got any more of that “veritas” (truth)?   

The “Yale” I’m referring to is, of course, Yale University.

You know…, THE “holier than thou” Yale University…, although most Yale’s administration and faculty would downplay any interest in God.

And THE “smarter than thou” Yale University.

And THE “more socially correct” and the more “politically correct” than you Yale University.

Yes…, that Yale University.

ayale 5

This is also THE Yale University with like a $40 billion tax free endowment fund under its belt, but still found its way to inappropriately apply for the small business aid package from the government in response to the coronavirus effects on our economy.

This is also THE Yale University that felt it couldn’t afford to pay many of its “non-professorial,” servant class, employees during the covid-19 shutdown, even though the amount they would pay would be less that 1% of just the daily interest they earn on their endowment.

ayale 2

From Yale’s own website, “…our school motto is “Urim and Thummim,” which is Hebrew for “Lux et Veritas,” which in turn is just Latin for “Light and Truth.” Emblazoned in the Yale seal, in these two ancient languages, the words convey the most concise and rudimentary expression of the University’s mission: to enlighten the minds of its young students and impart to them truth through knowledge.”

Ahhh, the truth.

The truth, in Yale’s case, and in the case of most of our schools of “higher learning,” is a moving target.

ayale 7

The truth is in the hands of the disseminators, intent on influencing these young people.

ayale 6

They are in fact squashing freedom of thought and poisoning these kids against their own country.

“Yale University traces its roots all the way back to the 1640s, when colonial clergymen led an effort to establish a local college in the tradition of European liberal education.”

ayale 3

They had no way of knowing how “liberal” that education would become!

“The school officially became Yale College in 1718, when it was renamed in honor of Welsh merchant Elihu Yale, who had donated the proceeds from the sale of nine bales of goods together with 417 books and a portrait of King George I.”

ayale 1

A gift like that wouldn’t even get you in the front door these days!

And after 300 years of history, Yale University’s hypocrisy has finally come back around to bite it in its own, privileged, derriere.

ayale 8

What we find at Yale is, “an astounding tale of slavery and deceit,” according to the “NewsMinute.com” (TNM) Staff.

“Following years of debate and protests, Yale University recently announced that it will rename one of its colleges named after John Calhoun, a former US vice-president, who is remembered as an advocate of slavery.”

Hmmm?  An advocate of slavery, and Yale felt it was wise to name one of its undergraduate colleges after him?

Interesting.

“The Calhoun College, one of the University’s 12 undergraduate residential colleges, will now be named to honor Grace Murray Hopper, a computer pioneer who went on to become a US Navy rear admiral.”

‘“The decision to change a college’s name is not one we take lightly, but John C. Calhoun’s legacy as a white supremacist and a national leader who passionately promoted slavery as a ‘positive good’ fundamentally conflicts with Yale’s mission and values,’ Yale President Peter Salovey said.”

And Yale just discovered “Calhoun’s legacy as a white supremacist and a national leader who passionately promoted slavery as a ‘positive good?’”

That’s either not very scholarly, or it not only didn’t bother Yale until now, but they thought enough of him to name one of their school’s after him!

“Just last year, Salovey [Yale’s President] had said that the name of Calhoun college would not be changed.”

That’s quite defiant in your racism, Mr. Salovey.

“Referring to it [his comment about not changing the name], he told Yale News, ‘At that time, as now, I was committed to confronting, not erasing, our history. I was concerned about inviting a series of name changes that would obscure Yale’s past. These concerns remain paramount, but we have since established an enduring set of principles that address them. The principles establish a strong presumption against renaming buildings, ensure respect for our past, and enable thoughtful review of any future requests for change.’”

Well that’s a typical bunch of mealy-mouthed, liberal, gobbledygook.

“Founded in 1701, Yale is the third oldest institution of higher education in the United States.”

“The University got its name from Elihu Yale, a British merchant who served as the governor of the East India Company settlement in Fort Saint George in Madras, India.”

“Born in 1649 in Massachusetts, Yale moved to London with his family when he was around three years of age. After finishing his education, he started working for the East India Company in 1671, and reached Madras [a city in eastern India, now called Chennai] a year later.

“Though one of the most prestigious institutions in the world today bears his name [Yale University], Elihu’s reputation however was not exactly a good one.”

“This is how historian Vakula S. Varadarajan described Elihu, according to a piece in ‘The Hindu.’ ‘Arrogant, ruthless braggart (his garden-house was known for his scandalous relationships), Welshman Elihu Yale was born on April 5, 1649 in Boston, joined the East India Company in 1671, became president/governor of St George Fort in 1687, but was removed from the post for indulging in private trade.’”

“The reason for Elihu’s removal from office was self-aggrandizement at company expense. He was accused of amassing huge wealth, by cheating both his employers and the people of India, and made to pay a fine; he had to stay in Madras till 1699.”

“A blog titled ‘Elihu Yale was a Slave Trader’ on Digital Histories at Yale tells of a dark side of Elihu Yale that not many may know of.”

‘“In the 1680s, when Yale served on the governing council at Fort St. George on the Madras coast, a devastating famine led to an uptick in the local slave trade. As more and more bodies became available on the open market, Yale and other company officials took advantage of the labor surplus, buying hundreds of slaves and shipping them to the English colony on Saint Helena,’ it said.”

ayale 10

‘“Yale participated in a meeting that ordered a minimum of ten slaves sent on every outbound European ship. In just one month in 1687, Fort St. George exported at least 665 individuals. As governor and president of the Madras settlement, Yale enforced the ten-slaves-per-vessel rule. On two separate occasions, he sentenced “black Criminalls” accused of burglary to suffer whipping, branding, and foreign enslavement. Although he probably did not own any of these people– the majority were held as the property of the East India Company– he certainly profited both directly and indirectly from their sale,’ it stated.”

ayale 9

“Last year, when Yale announced the creation of a ‘Committee to Establish Principles on Renaming’, Roger Kimball, editor and publisher of the ‘New Criterion,’ in an opinion piece for The Wall Street Journal, wrote how Calhoun was just an ‘amateur’ when compared to Elihu [Yale].

‘“In the great racism sweepstakes, John Calhoun was an amateur. Far more egregious was Elihu Yale, the philanthropist whose benefactions helped found the University [Yale]. As an administrator in India, he was deeply involved in the slave trade. He always made sure that ships leaving his jurisdiction for Europe carried at least 10 slaves. I propose that the committee on renaming table the issue of Calhoun College and concentrate on the far more flagrant name, “Yale,’” he wrote.”

Wow.

Out of the millions and millions of people to name a college after, you picked thus guy?

And just a reminder to all of you “Yalies…,” I didn’t open this can of worms…, you and your liberal propagandist, gestapo, friends did.

Now you have to deal with it.

ayale 4

May I suggest you change the university’s name to honor a proud, but not an elitist, Indiana family, from America’s heartland, which originally immigrated from Germany?

Specifically, you could honor a proud member of this family, Francis “Frank” Anthony Eff.

You could change your college’s name to Eff University…, or Eff U!

Why do these liberals gotta be so mean?  

According to Talia Kaplan of Fox News, “New York Post columnist Miranda Devine said on Wednesday that Food Network host John Henson ‘should be ashamed of himself for targeting’ President Trump’s 14-year-old son Barron in a tweet over the weekend.”

abarron 5

You have to wonder, exactly what would motivate Henson to make a hurtful and mean-spirited remark like that?

I mean, who sits around thinking about Barron Trump, much less dreaming up hurtful tweets towards him?

abarron 9

I would have to assume that Jim Henson has some mental health issues going on here.

‘“You may hate President Trump, but don’t attack his child, his teenage son,’ Devine told ‘Fox & Friends’ on Wednesday.”

“Devine was reacting to a Father’s Day tweet where Henson reportedly questioned whether President Trump is Barron’s father.”

abarron 1

What the hell is up with that?

And how do you get 37,700 “likes” to garbage like that?

There are definitely some mental health issues going on here, along with some deep-seeded jealousy and narcissistic issues as well.

abarron 7

We see this quite often with “comedians…,” especially “comedians” who aren’t particularly funny or talented.

abarron 3

I mean, being a host on the Food Network is only about one step above selling estate jewelry on a cable channel.

abarron 4

“In a tweet, which has since been deleted, The Daily Wire reported that the television host and stand-up comic, wrote, ‘I hope Barron [Trump] gets to spend today with whoever his dad is.’”

Wow.  What an underhanded, despicable, and classless thing to say.

He may have a future in democrat politics!

abarron 10

‘“It’s utterly despicable that a Food Network host would use Father’s Day to target a child, a 14-year-old boy who has done nothing wrong,’ Devine said on Wednesday.”

“Melania Trump’s spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham said Henson’s comments about Barron were ‘inappropriate and insensitive,’ according to a statement to the Daily Caller.”

Yes…, “inappropriate and insensitive,” to say the very least.

abarron 12

‘“Sadly, we continue to see inappropriate and insensitive comments about the President’s son [Barron Trump]. As with every other Administration, a minor child should be off-limits and allowed to grow up with no judgment or hate from strangers and the media,’ she said.”

abarron 2

“Devine said that ‘We’ve seen a pattern of this,’ adding that ‘the first lady is famously very protective of Barron Trump.’”

As well you would expect.  She is his mother after all, Ms. Devine.

abarron 6

“Devine pointed to an incident last December where Stanford Law Professor Pamela Karlan, who testified during the impeachment hearing, used Barron Trump’s name to illustrate her point that President Trump can’t rule like a king.”

abarron 8

‘“The Constitution says there can be no titles of nobility, so while the president can name his son Barron, he can’t make him a baron,’ Karlan said in the committee room, prompting chuckles across the room.”

“Chuckles” from other clueless morons like herself.

And the fact that he named his son Barron, which isn’t even the same as a royal “baron,” and the fact that he named his son “Barron” more than 10 years before he even thought of running for the presidency, never even crossed her feebly biased mind.

What an absolute dolt.

abarron 14

My regard for lawyers has not been very high to start with…, and they seem to lower my esteem for them the more they open their mouths.

‘“A minor child deserves privacy and should be kept out of politics,’ the first lady tweeted in response. ‘Pamela Karlan, you should be ashamed of your very angry and obviously biased public pandering, and using a child to do it.’”

Mrs. Trump, I’m sorry to say that these people don’t get ashamed.

They have no shame.

“Karlan apologized for the remark, but not without making another dig at the president.”

They also never really apologize, because they’re not really sorry.

They only “apologize” because not apologizing may hurt their narrative in some way.

‘“I want to apologize for what I said earlier about the president’s son. It was wrong of me to do that,’ Karlan said during the hearing. ‘I wish the president would apologize for the things that he’s done that’s wrong, but I do regret having said that.’”

ABARRON 13

Just one thing Ms. Karlan; if you can’t even realize when what you yourself are saying is inappropriate, how do you pretend to know that The President has done things worth apologizing for?

Just sayin’.

You really should drop this whole testifying thing and go back to something you’re good at, like poisoning the brains of your students with all of your liberal propaganda.

What ever happened to “three strikes and ‘yer’ out!”

Somewhere along the line, that concept has apparently been expanded a bit…, to 100, and still counting!

Over 100!

Are you kidding me?!

How is a person who has been “arrested over 100 times” still seeing the light of day…, much less walking around free as a bird and harming other people?

aarrest 4

And this guy looks way too young to have already been arrested over 100 times.

I wonder what the record for times being arrested is?

I’m almost, no, I am, afraid to ask.

I would think this guy has a real shot at it before he’s through though…, whatever it is.

According to Reuven Fenton, Larry Celona and Craig McCarthy for The New York Post, “A career criminal with more than 100 arrests to his name was busted for cruelly shoving a 92-year-old woman into a Manhattan fire hydrant — leaving his victim too scared to walk alone in her own neighborhood.”

aarrest 7

“The injured elder, a Bronx native named Geraldine, spoke to The Post on Tuesday after cops arrested convicted sex offender Rashid Brimmage, 31, and charged him with attacking her.”

https://youtu.be/6jfN1kXPiak

‘“I thought a brick hit me or something hit me on the left side of my head, and I went right down and hit my head against the hydrant,’ Geraldine, who asked that her last name be withheld for safety reasons, said of the attack. ‘Blood was coming out, not spurting blood, but blood was dripping.’”

“Geraldine, who has lived in Manhattan for more than 50 years, was on her way to Duane Reade [a chain of pharmacy and convenience stores in New York City, owned by Walgreens] when Brimmage allegedly shoved her to the ground near Third Avenue and East 16th Street in Gramercy Park at about 3:30 p.m. on Friday.”

“She slammed against the fire hydrant and lay on the ground until a passerby called 911 and medics rushed her to nearby Beth Israel Hospital.”

“The former teacher, who never married but is dating an 89-year-old lawyer, said her physical wounds were relatively minor and have since healed — but the mental toll has been much more severe.”

‘“Mostly I’m shaken. My head still hurts where it was bleeding, where I hit the hydrant — or where he hit me, I don’t know,’ she said.”

‘“Mainly it’s psychological — just the fear of going out on the street,’ she added.”

‘“This damned guy put me in a state where I’m fearful to walk the streets alone. So, my super’s trying to find somebody who will walk me to a park nearby or to the supermarket, that kind of thing. So that’s the problem.’”

aarrest 1

“Brimmage was busted by cops Tuesday and charged with assault after investigators recognized him from video footage of the attack, authorities said.”

Oh, so, he was arrested…, again.

Why does this not make me feel much better?

“The frequent offender has now been arrested 103 times since 2005, sources said.”

“The creep was convicted of sexual misconduct in 2012, then arrested for two sex offenses in 2014, police sources said.”

“Creep?”

You better watch it, calling this guy a “creep.”

Soon you’ll have every liberal in New York taking offense at that language, and lecturing us all about what a fine, upstanding, young man this punk is.

“In May of that year, he was busted for exposing and fondling himself on an East Harlem street, the sources said.”

ahealth 15

“In 2017, he failed to notify authorities that he changed his address and had to register as a sex offender, state records show.”

“At the time of Friday’s attack, Brimmage had three open criminal cases in the city, according to court records.”

“Three open criminal cases,” huh?

I guess they don’t start holding you in custody until you’ve been arrested over 150 times in New York City!

I can’t believe I was actually considering visiting New York at one point in my life.

I would never step foot in The People’s Republic of New York City now or in the future.

aarrest 10

What a disgraceful excuse for an American city New York has become.  I’m actually ashamed to have to claim it as part of the country I live in.

“He was arrested Feb. 17 for a misdemeanor assault and harassment charge for an incident that happened in The Bronx a week earlier, according to records. He was released without bail in the case.”

No, of course, they don’t want to hinder his attempt at the record!

“He was busted in the borough again March 5 and slapped with trespassing summons, according to court records.”

“And most recently, he was arrested March 9 in Manhattan and hit with criminal possession of a controlled substance, assault and attempted assault charges.”

And please consider that these 100+ arrests are only the times this guy was caught!

How many thousands of times has this poor excuse for a human being broken the law and didn’t get arrested?

It’s just mind-boggling.

It is my belief that the City of New York should be held criminally and financially responsible for anything these habitual criminals are allowed to perpetrate on the unsuspecting, law-abiding, citizens in the city.

New York City has passed the “reasonable” threshold, in this case, a long, long time ago.

Habitual criminals, like this scumbag, should not be allowed to continually prey on the civilized people who are forced to share the city with him.

Sleepless…, uh, I mean Clueless in Seattle!

Seattle, one of the most liberal cities in America, is on the verge of absolutely falling apart.

ablondie 4

It’s like an episode of “The Walking Dead!”

ablondie 9

ablondie 10

The city is being torn apart by those with a brain, and those without a brain.

ablondie 11

According to David Aaro of Fox News, “The leadership in Seattle appeared to be in disarray [Wow! That’s about as nicely as you can describe that situation!] on Friday after the city’s embattled mayor called the protesters who took over an ‘autonomous zone’ in the city ‘patriotic’ while the official who ordered police to flee the nearby precinct has refused to come forward.”

Say what?!

Wow.  These people really do think we’re all as stupid as they are!

ablondie 5

“Despite the slow-moving disaster and protesters calling on Mayor Jenny Durkan and Chief Carmen Best to resign, the mayor resisted the call and raised eyebrows when she joked about considering a ‘Thelma & Louise’ moment in an interview, referring to the 1991 movie about two women on the run from the law.”

Again…, say what?!

They call this an “autonomous zone.”

I would say it’s more like “The Twilight Zone!”

ablondie 7

“At Thursday’s news conference, Best told reporters it wasn’t her decision to leave the precinct, while Durkan also denied responsibility, according to ‘The Stranger,’ a Seattle-based newspaper.”

‘“We were asked to do an operational plan in case we needed to leave,’ Best said. ‘The decision was made. We’re still evaluating about how that change came about but it didn’t come from me.’”

ablondie 8

“Despite the fact that police cannot gain full access to the police station, Durkan tried to downplay the situation on the ground. She claimed that Trump was wrong to call the protesters ‘domestic terrorists.’”

Ha! Ya…, he should’ve included you in that group, Mayor Durkan!

‘“It’s simply not true. Lawfully gathering and expressing first amendment rights, demanding we do better as a society, and providing true equity for communities of color is not terrorism. It’s patriotism,’ she said.”

ablondie 6

We would all agree with that, Ms. Mayor…, but what about the slight matters of looting, burning, vandalism…, oh, and forcibly taking over square blocks of a city, along with a police precinct that you seem to have overlooked?

“Durkan has tweeted that the protest is ‘a peaceful expression of our community’s collective grief and their desire to build a better world.’”

ablondie 2

“KIRO 7 reported, citing police, that demonstrators moved barricades near the police station and threw rocks and ‘improvised explosives’ at officers on several occasions. Best reportedly said that 25 cops were injured since the protests began.”

This is what Durkan describes as, “Lawfully gathering and expressing first amendment rights, demanding we do better as a society, and providing true equity for communities of color?”

These people have all lost their minds.

This situation with Mayor Durkin, and many other of these liberal mayors as well, reminds me of an old “Blondie” cartoon that I cut out of the newspaper at the time and kept.

ablondie 1

The cartoon showed Blondie’s husband, Dagwood Bumstead, at work talking with his boss, Mr. Dithers.  The cartoon went something like this:

Mr. Dithers: C’mon, Bumstead!  Come out and have a drink with me and the boys before you head home.

Dagwood: Okay, Mr. Dithers…, just let me call Blondie first.

Mr. Dithers: Call Blondie first?!  Aren’t you the boss around your house, Bumstead?

Dagwood:  Of course, I am!

Mr. Dithers: Well, why do you have to call then?

Dagwood:  Because, if I don’t call, Blondie won’t let me be the boss anymore.

I know this correlation is a bit of a stretch, but I hope you can see what I’m referring to here.

The point is, Dagwood isn’t really the one “in charge,” and neither is Mayor Durkin.

‘“You [the police officers] fought [Actually they were prohibited from fighting.  It was more like just standing there, like sitting ducks.] for days to protect (The East Precinct). I asked you to stand on that line. Day in and day out, to be pelted with projectiles, to be screamed at, threatened and in some cases hurt. Then to have a change of course [by their beloved mayor] early two weeks in, it seems like an insult [Oh, it was an insult!] to you and our community,’ Best said in a video, according to the station.”

“On Thursday, the crowd continued to occupy the six-block downtown area, named the ‘Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone’ (CHAZ) because of its location in the city’s Capitol Hill neighborhood.”

ablondie 12

“President Trump told Fox News’ Harris Faulkner in an exclusive interview Thursday that his administration is ‘not going to let Seattle be occupied by anarchists.’”

‘“If there were more toughness, you wouldn’t have the kind of devastation that you had in Minneapolis and in Seattle. I mean, let’s see what’s going on in Seattle,’ Trump told Faulkner. ‘I will tell you, if they don’t straighten that situation out, we’re going to straighten it out.’”

ablondie 3

“It’s clear @realDonaldTrump doesn’t understand what’s happening on five square blocks of our City. Cal Anderson and Capitol Hill has for decades been a place for free speech, community, and self-expression,” Durkan tweeted out in response.

“Durkan has insisted that CHAZ was ‘not a lawless wasteland of anarchist insurrection, but a peaceful expression of the community’s grief following the death of George Floyd in police custody on May 25 in Minneapolis.’”

Just because you say something isn’t what it obviously is doesn’t change the fact that it is what it obviously is, Mayor Durkan.

I hope that makes sense to you…, it makes sense to me.

WINNING!

Kneel before your masters!

akneel 18

Before I get started, let me say that I have been known to identify as a transgender black man.

akneel 10

akneel 11

akneel 12

You’ll have to take my word on the transgender part, and hey…, I’m at least as “black” as Kamala Harris is!

akneel 14

akneel 13

That being established…, I feel more comfortable discussing this whole kneeling thing.

It is my belief that people should be allowed to kneel (take a knee) whenever they want, and for whatever reason they have.

It’s a free country.

But “freedom” works both ways.

I, also living in this free country, am allowed to have my own interpretation of your kneeling, and to like it, be indifferent, or to not like it.

akneel 2

We have seen professional sports players kneeling, sheriffs and police offices kneeling, politicians kneeling, along with protesters of every gender, size, shape, color and cause kneeling.

In the case of all of these sports figures choosing to take a knee, during our country’s national anthem…, I don’t like it.

akneel 3

akneel 4

I’m not saying they don’t have the right to do it…, I’m just saying I don’t like it, as is my right.

akneel 1

They will say they are not intending to disrespect our flag, or the people who gave their lives for our country, or the people who sacrificed arms and legs for our country.

akneel 16

I counter by saying I don’t care what your intentions are…, we’re telling you how your actions ARE making us feel…, and yet knowing how those actions make us feel…, you choose to continue to kneel anyway.

That is intentionally disrespecting all of the people who feel like I do.

akneel 17

This is intentionally disrespecting all of the people who feel like I do, including those of us who are sympathetic and agree with your complaints and those of us who could be sympathetic and agree with your complaints, if they could get past your disrespect.

But, you want us to respect what, you say, is a sign of protest of the treatment of African-Americans in this country.

You want to protest police brutality?

Then go take a knee in front of a police station or in front of city hall.

Don’t take a knee in front of the people who are footing the bill for your exorbitant salaries.

Don’t take a knee in front of the people who have nothing to do with the object of your professed protest.

Don’t take a knee in front of the people who are choosing to watch your sporting event as a way of escaping all of the normal day-to-day crap…, which includes politics and political protests.

When we watch these sporting events, we don’t want to be antagonized…, we just want to be entertained.

If you want to make a statement, then please go make a statement on your own time.

This kneeling at work is really the laziest form of protest…, requiring little to no effort on the protesters’ part.

akneel 15

In the case of these politicians taking a knee…, please…, your disingenuousness and foolishness is overwhelming.

akneel 6

In the case of law enforcement and protesters taking a knee…, all I see are fools and tools bowing down to their liberal masters and their masters’ whims and desires.

akneel 7

akneel 9

Get off your knees people!

Get off your knees and stand up on your own two feet if you want to protest!

Nobody respects people, groveling, down on their knees…, not even the people being bowed down to.

Stupid is as stupid does…

… but these liberals are dangerous!

adefund 18

There is a growing movement across the US to defund many major metropolitan police departments and get rid of the police, as we know them, altogether.

adefund 1

I guess these big, liberal, cities can do what they want.  I just thank God I don’t live in one of these cities!

These liberals have literally lost their minds.

adefund 12

Who exactly is going to live and reside in these “policeless” cities?

What businesses are going to feel safe operating there?

What about utility services, as well as fire departments and emergency medical services?

What hospitals are going to want to operate in that type of environment?

What law-abiding and decent people are going to want to live in these places with their families?

Who is going to want to risk their lives visiting these places anymore?

adefund 15

The criminal elements in all of these cities must be laughing their a$$es off at these liberal idiots and licking their chops in anticipation of a cop-free environment.

I predict that these major, liberal, cities will become wastelands within a year if they manage to achieve their “policeless” goals.

Have you seen the movie “Escape from New York?”  Well, if you want to see a preview of life in New York City without a police force, watch it.

adefund 10

According to Sam Levin, in Los Angeles, for “The Guardian,” Activists say the way to stop police brutality and killings is to cut law enforcement budgets and reinvest in services.”

“The movement to defund the police is gaining significant support across America, including from elected leaders, as protests over the killing of George Floyd sweep the nation.”

adefund 2

“For years, activists have pushed US cities and states to cut law enforcement budgets amid a dramatic rise in spending on police and prisons while funding for vital social services has shrunk or disappeared altogether.”

“Government officials have long dismissed the idea as a leftist fantasy, but the recent unrest and massive budget shortfalls from the Covid-19 crisis appear to have inspired more mainstream recognition of the central arguments behind defunding.”

“A leftist fantasy?”

More like a social nightmare.

adefund 16

‘“To see legislators who aren’t even necessarily on the left supporting at least a significant decrease in New York police department [NYPD] funding is really very encouraging,’ Julia Salazar, a New York state senator and Democratic socialist, told the Guardian on Tuesday. ‘It feels a little bit surreal.’”

adefund 19

Oh, it’s surreal alright!

I’m also guessing that Ms. Salazar won’t actually be living in these “policeless” areas.

“Floyd’s death on camera in Minneapolis, advocates say, was a powerful demonstration that police reform efforts of the last half-decade have failed to stop racist policing and killings.”

I’m not sure you can lump all police problems into one big racial pile, Mr. Levin.

More than twice the number of whites have died in police custody as opposed to blacks, and many black officers have been involved with these deaths as well.

I’m sure race comes into play occasionally, but for the most part we’re just dealing with a handful of inept and/or uncaring cops who should really be in another line of work.

“Meanwhile, the striking visuals of enormous, militarized and at times violent police forces responding to peaceful protests have led some politicians to question whether police really need this much money and firepower.”

“Violent police forces responding to peaceful protesters?”

Excuse me, Mr. Levin, but are you taking some type of hallucinogenic medication, or are you just being intentionally disingenuous?

I’m guessing the latter.

How many protesters have been shot by the police in response to their actions?

Zero.

How many looters have been shot by the police in response to their actions?

Zero.

How many criminal vandals and rioters have been shot by the police in response to their actions?

Zero.

How many protesters, looters, vandals and rioters have been killed by the police in response to their actions?

Zero.

How many protesters, looters, and vandals have been injured in some way by the police in response to their actions?

There have undeniably been some…, and probably rightly so.

Overall, I feel the police forces across our nation have shown incredible restraint, unbelievable restraint, when dealing with all of these protesters, looters and rioters.

Now…,

How many cops have been shot during these “protests?”

Over a dozen, and counting.

How many cops have been injured in some way during these “protests?”

Easily in the hundreds, and counting.

If you’d like to see the police officers who have died in the line of duty, just doing their jobs, I’d like to invite you to visit the Ofice Down Memorial Page at https://odmp.org

“Community groups advocating for defunding have put forward differing strategies, some merely opposing police budget increases, others advocating mass reductions, and some fighting for full defunding as a step toward abolishing police forces. Some initiatives are tied to the fight to close prisons. All are pushing for a reinvestment of those dollars in services.”

Abolishing police forces and closing prisons.

Who are running these community groups?

The Joker?

The Penguin?

Lex Luthor?

The Riddler?

I mean, really!

“Amid the protests, some local leaders with budgeting powers have started proposing modest cuts to policing. The most substantial change so far, has come in Minneapolis where the school board on Tuesday voted to end its contract with the police department. The University of Minnesota has also pledged to stop working with police.”

‘“People have been fighting for years to get cops out of schools, and now it’s happening overnight,’ said Tony Williams, a member of MPD150, an abolition group whose literature on building a ‘police-free future’ has spread on social media in recent days. One elected Minneapolis ward member said this week that the city’s police department was ‘irredeemably beyond reform,’ the kind of remark that would until recently have been unthinkable to organizers.”

I don’t believe that the people and students of Columbine High School, Sandy Hook Elementary School, or Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School were too upset about the cops being in their schools.

Just sayin’.

adefund 22“Kelly Lytle Hernandez, a UCLA historian and recent MacArthur recipient, said this could be a pivotal moment for the US: ‘We’ve created over the last 30 to 40 years a sense that our safety and wellbeing always comes from investing more and more in police.’”

Well, Miss MacArthur award recipient (let’s just say you won’t see any conservatives winning that award), how else would you recommend spending money to promote safety in our big cities?

I do agree with you, however, that this is “a pivotal moment” for many of our big cities.

Either they can choose to use common sense when approaching these problems, or they can go off the deep end, following these know-nothing, anti-American, liberal pied pipers.

I’m guessing that common sense will not prevail amongst these idiots and liberal provocateurs.

‘“This week, it seems there is increasing recognition of this failure,’ she said, adding, ‘Defunding the police is the first step in a much broader historical transformation that I’m hoping you’re seeing broad-based support for on the streets today.’”

Well, there you have it.

“Defunding the police is the first step in a much broader historical transformation.”

Just the first step.

And the “historical transformation” involves the abandoning of our American values and the surrendering of our freedom as we devolve towards a socialistic/communistic/globalistic mess.

Tyler Olson of Fox News adds that, “Several members of the Minneapolis City Council this week have expressed support for radical changes to how the city handles law enforcement, including a move to ‘dismantle’ the police department and replace it with ‘a transformative new model for public safety.’”

Ha!

I’m anxious to see what these daring young fascists have in mind.

“Jeremiah Ellison, the son of Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison and a representative of the city’s Ward 5, explicitly led calls to ‘dramatically rethink’ how the city keeps its people safe.”

adefund 9

‘“We are going to dismantle the Minneapolis Police Department,’ he tweeted. ‘And when we’re done, we’re not simply gonna glue it back together. We are going to dramatically rethink how we approach public safety and emergency response.’”

I’m sure their “rethinking” will include Sharia Law in there somewhere, based on his family’s Muslim background.

“His call was echoed by Lisa Bender, the president of the city council.”

The president of the city council!

adefund 21

‘“Yes,’ she said in response to Ellison. ‘We are going to dismantle the Minneapolis Police Department and replace it with a transformative new model of public safety.’”

“That was not the first time Bender had addressed calls to ‘dismantle’ the city’s police force this week, however. On Wednesday she posted a thread about how a ‘white person’ should think about dismantling the police.”

I honestly don’t think you’ll have many white people left in your city by that time, but let’s hear it anyway, Ms. Bender.

“If you are a comfortable white person asking to dismantle the police I invite you to reflect: are you willing to stick with it? Will you be calling in three months to ask about garage break-ins? Are you willing to dismantle white supremacy in all systems, including a new system?  I mean this quite sincerely & seriously: just look at recent conversations about City-funded neighborhood organizations to understand how explicitly we would have to work to establish alternative systems that do not replicate the same problems. White ppl need to show up for this.”

I’m really not sure what to say about this racist individual or her confused train of thought.

I always wonder, “how do all of these idiots get elected?

“According to the Minneapolis Star Tribune, Bender sees the city’s potentially revamped public safety force as potentially sending social workers or other civilian personnel into situations that are traditionally handled by police.”

Oh, ya…, that’s going to work out real well!

It’s confirmed.  These liberals HAVE all lost their minds…, at least what little minds they had.

Liberals like everything to be free…, except thought and speech!  

The First Amendment to The Constitution guarantees our freedom of speech.  If our freedom of speech is guaranteed, then by default our freedom of thought and beliefs are also protected, since our speech is just a verbalization of our thoughts.

abacklash 15

We may not like or agree with other people, but we must allow them to exist and say what they want, and vice versa.

For example…, The KKK and The Nazi Party are generally disliked, but they must be allowed to exist. The same could be said about Pro-life supporters versus Pro-Abortion supporters, depending on your stance here.

In America, we are allowed to dislike or hate whoever we want and for whatever reason(s).

Just as we are allowed to like or approve of whoever we want for whatever reason(s), or for no reason at all.

Racism is the latest inexcusable social infraction du jour…, but there are many forms of discrimination and -isms we all face every day regarding:

Ethnic culture.

Religion.

Geographic origins.

Current Geographic situation.

Wealth.

Politics.

Gender.

Sexual preferences.

And Education…, just to name a few.

Expressing unacceptable beliefs, in any of these areas, as determined by the liberal speech and thought police, can be detrimental to your livelihood, and social freedoms, like losing your job, being boycotted, and being harassed and even assaulted in public.

abacklash 7

abacklash 4

And many of these “belief infractions” are not even close to radical in nature.

Take the latest liberal hissy fit, for instance, regarding professional football player, Drew Brees, of the New Orleans Saints.

abacklash 6

According to Ryan Gaydos of Fox News, “Drew Brees created an uproar Wednesday when he defended his stance against players kneeling during the national anthem…”

“While Brees was getting hammered from the likes of LeBron James, Aaron Rodgers, former wide receiver Joe Horn told ‘The Athletic’ that people like the Los Angeles Lakers superstar should get to know Brees first before making any decision.”

‘“People should not be throwing Drew Brees under the bus, and they definitely need to pump the brakes on labeling him a racist,’ Horn said. ‘I know Drew Brees. Drew has done a lot to help black families and the black community in New Orleans. If Drew Brees didn’t love black families and low-income families he wouldn’t have helped the way he has over the years. People that are criticizing him like LeBron James and other celebrities don’t know him. They need to check his resume.”

I’m sorry, Joe, but don’t you know what you say is way more meaningful than what you actually do these days?

Where you been, man?

‘“I love my race. And I love New Orleans to death. But I know Drew Brees. And Drew is a good person. And until you have walked beside him and gotten to know him, his wife and family, you definitely have to give him a pass on this one and allow Drew a chance to think about what he said and come back and make this right. And I know he will.’”

“I love my race?”

I’m sorry, again, but I can’t even relate to what that means.

Good for you though, I guess.

And you think Drew will “think about what he said and come back and make this right?”

Make what right?

Even the people defending Drew Brees are misguided, confused and displaying their own level of racism.

abacklash 9

“He was reacting to [LeBron] James’ comments on Twitter which read, ‘WOW MAN!! Is it still surprising at this point. Sure isn’t! You literally still don’t understand why Kap [Colin Kaepernick] was kneeling on one knee?? Has absolute nothing to do with the disrespect of and our soldiers (men and women) who keep our land free. My father-in-law was one of those.’”

abacklash 10

Here’s an idea SheBron…, why don’t you quit crying, put your big boy pants on and realize everyone has a right to their own beliefs and their own opinions. We don’t need you to tell us what we need to understand either.

abacklash 19

Personally, I don’t believe someone who plays a game for a living should be paid like they won the lottery every year…, but hey, that’s just me.

“Marcus Davenport, who is currently Brees’ teammate, tweeted his defense of the quarterback.”

‘“Drew wasn’t talking about the current protest, the riots or really anything besides HIS feelings on kneeling during the National Anthem,’ Davenport wrote. ‘He even explained what they were, the basis and that he actually stands with us. Do we have to entirely agree with him, no.’”

You better watch it, Marcus…, because OH, YES HE DOES have to agree with EVERYTHING the left professes!

I’m sure we’ll be seeing Marcus issuing a clarification of his remarks very soon, if he hasn’t already done so.  That goes for Drew Brees as well.

abacklash 17

“Brees told Yahoo Finance that he would never agree with players protesting during the national anthem.”

‘“I will never agree with anybody disrespecting the flag of the United States of America or our country. Let me just tell you what I see or what I feel when the national anthem is played and when I look at the flag of the United States,’ he said.”

‘“I envision my two grandfathers, who fought for this country during World War II, one in the Army and one in the Marine Corps. Both risking their lives to protect our country and to try to make our country and this world a better place. So, every time I stand with my hand over my heart looking at that flag and singing the national anthem, that’s what I think about,’ he said.”

‘“And in many cases, that brings me to tears, thinking about all that has been sacrificed. Not just those in the military, but for that matter, those throughout the civil rights movements of the ‘60s, and all that has been endured by so many people up until this point. And is everything right with our country right now? No, it is not. We still have a long way to go. But I think what you do by standing there and showing respect to the flag with your hand over your heart, is it shows unity. It shows that we are all in this together, we can all do better and that we are all part of the solution.’”

This Drew Brees just sounds like such a terribly insensitive racist, doesn’t he?

abacklash 13

These protesters can try and explain their protests anyway they want, but that doesn’t stop anyone from feeling how they feel about their protests, and that is their right.

You have the right to protest anyway you like, and I have the right to not like it.

You have the right to dislike anything I say, but you don’t have the right to silence me, nor I you.

That’s it.

Liberal Lunacy 101!

OK…, I’ve enrolled you in this new class.

Welcome to class.

Now let’s get started.

alunacy 7

A few days ago, all of these confused, liberal democrat mayors and all of the equally confused, democrat, “blue state,” governors were only worried about making sure people didn’t gather in churches, that people practiced social distancing and wore masks everywhere, and made sure no one could operate their business…, unless their business’ name was Walmart, Costco, Target, Home Depot, etc.

Apparently, people are immune from the virus in these stores only…, and nowhere else.

Oh…, but now…, what a difference a day, or a couple days, makes.

alunacy 2

George Floyd dies while in police custody, in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and this gives “protesters” carte blanche to loot, burn and generally destroy whatever they want to.

alunacy 11

Now here are some real crimes!

All of the liberal, loser, governors and mayors aren’t worried about those “virus violations” now, at least for the time being.

There’s no doubt George Floyd would be alive today, if not for the careless and unnecessary behavior of one or more Minneapolis police officers.

alunacy 12

And these individuals are the ones we and any protesters should be focusing our anger towards…, not the police in general, not the cities in general, and certainly not towards innocent business owners.

alunacy 4

There are bad and misguided people in every line of work and in every type of business and organization, but we don’t hold everyone accountable for the actions of one or a few people, do we?

alunacy 14

And to tell you the truth, this isn’t what’s really happening here, for the most part, anyway.

What’s really happening here is, we have people protesting peacefully during the day, voicing their frustrations with “the system,” and then there are whole other groups of individuals coming out at night, who could care less about George Floyd, but who just generally want to cause unrest and damage things, and others who just want to take advantage of the situation in order to loot any businesses they can in order to get free stuff.

alunacy 5

alunacy 1

alunacy 16

The people just trying to get stuff for free I can understand…, but what about these people burning down buildings and generally destroying their neighborhoods and cities?

alunacy 13

This group can be further broken down into a few more sub-groups.

The first group are just the idiots that enjoy wrecking anything they can just because that’s how they get their rocks off. The enjoy getting back at “the man,” and inflicting pain on anything and anybody in an attempt to ease their own frustration.

alunacy 10

I’m not a licensed psychoanalyst, but I have stayed at a Holiday Inn Express before.

The next group are those individuals who are being paid and directed to cause this destruction by individuals who hate America, and will do anything to cause problems in our country.  And don’t think these people don’t really exist, because they do…, and they’re aligned with the anti-American democrat party.

alunacy 9

Then, there are the attention starved, liberal fools, who make themselves easy pawns to get sucked in by the before mentioned group, in order to help them create their havoc.

This is where these idiotic liberal tools…, these liberal mayors and governors have a hard time understanding what’s really going on.

They’re afraid to do anything about the rioters at night because they’re afraid they’ll be seen as infringing on these peoples’ right to protest, when in reality, the people at night could care less about protesting.

Oh, sure, you’ll see a person with some feeble sign here or there, or someone yelling at the cops, but these are a few out of a hundred…, and believe me, the other ones who are burning buildings and police cars, throwing rocks, and looting, appreciate them for providing cover for their criminal activities. Some of these “protesters” are even planted there by the ne’er-do-wells themselves.

All in all, these liberal mayors can at least take comfort in knowing that they won’t have to worry about many of the businesses in their city wanting to open up anymore!

And most of the rioters were wearing masks, after all!

We wouldn’t want any of our friendly neighborhood vandals catching the virus while they’re busy expressing their frustration by destroying our city!

“Which way did he go, George…, which way did he go?!”

This phrase is from a 1940 Looney Tunes/Merrie Melodies short film titled “Of Fox and Hounds.”

The cartoon focuses on a sly fox, George, and a lovable but dimwitted hound, Willoughby, who repeatedly asks George where the fox went, never suspecting that his “friend” George is the fox.

According to Julia Marsh and Jorge Fitz-Gibbon of The New York Post, “It is ‘unconscionable’ that Rikers Island inmates who were released due to coronavirus concerns are committing new crimes, Mayor Bill de Blasio said Monday.”

ageorge 2

ageorge 7

For my purposes here, De Blasio would be Willoughby, the lovable but dimwitted hound, minus the lovable part, and the released inmates would be represented by, George, the sly fox.

ageorge 1

‘“I think it’s unconscionable just on a human level that folks were shown mercy and this is what some of them have done,’ the mayor said during his morning briefing Monday, which came on the heels of a Post report outlining the issue.”

This article tells you all you need to know about the naive and clueless liberal mindset.

AGEORGE 12

“De Blasio said the number of re-offenders remains relatively small and that the city was ‘buckling down’ on monitoring and supervising released prisoners.”

“The number of re-offenders remains relatively small,” Mr. Mayor?

The number should be really small…, LIKE ZERO!

Everything else over zero is on you at this point.

‘“We’re going to just keep buckling down on it, making sure there’s close monitoring and supervision to the maximum step possible. And the NYPD is going to keep doing what they’re doing,’” de Blasio added.

Just for the record, “More than 1,400 city inmates have been granted early releases due to concerns about the spread of coronavirus.”

ageorge 9

The Post reported Sunday that, “At least 50 of the newly released Rikers Island prisoners were rearrested for new crimes in recent weeks — and in some cases were cut loose again.”

Wait, what?!

ageorge 3

THEY WERE CUT LOOSE AGAIN?!!!!!!!!!!

The level of irresponsibility and idiocy displayed here, by de Blasio and other New York City officials, is truly impressive!

ageorge 11

ageorge 10

ageorge 4

ageorge 6

ageorge 5

ageorge 13

“The Legal Aid Society, Bronx Defenders and other legal defense groups have been petitioning courts since the outbreak of the deadly global pandemic, arguing that inmates, particularly those who are older or have medical conditions, are more vulnerable to the deadly bug within the confines of city jails.”

What “defense groups” are petitioning the courts regarding the vulnerability of law-abiding citizens who will now be forced to deal with over a thousand convicted criminals being released into their midst?

The survivability rate for the coronavirus is 98.5%

The “survivability” rate of being affected by these criminals committing another crime is only 96.5%.

And the Mayor’s “virus of ignorance” is completely preventable!

Just sayin’.
