Do you think police lives don’t matter?

Hopefully you’re not one of these pathetic, conscienceless, neo-fascists.

But, who do we have to blame for remaining silent about this abhorrent behavior?

Who do we have to blame for encouraging these brutal executions of innocent men and women, moms and dads, sons and daughters, brothers and sisters, who are just out there doing their jobs and hoping to get home alive after their shift?

I’ve heard the agitators, paid and otherwise, cry for the death of all cops.

I’ve heard the racial parasites from BLM, the NAACP, the ACLU, and more, call for revenge against the police.

And I’ve heard the passive and silent liberal leaders and democrat politicians thusly condoning these actions.

These are the co-conspirators in the deaths and injuries to many of our law enforcement officers.

And make no mistake about it…, these are “hate crimes,” based solely on an individual wearing a police uniform.

If they’re white, all the better, but that’s not a definite prerequisite.

Let’s take a look at one of the big, bad, racist cops who was deemed worthy to be executed recently.

Her name is Claudia Apolinar.

Claudia Apolinar is smiling here for a photo with LASD Sheriff Alex Villanueva at her July 2019 graduation (Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Facebook).

She is a single mom who was a librarian before joining the police force only 14 months ago.

“According to Stephanie Pagones of Fox News, “One of the sheriff’s deputies ambushed Saturday night by a brazen gunman previously worked as a librarian before she applied to join the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department three years ago, according to a report.”

Describing this person as a “brazen gunman” seems too complimentary to me. I would use the words, cowardly, sub-human, and disgusting.

“Claudia Apolinar, who is being guarded by fellow members of the sheriff’s department while she and her partner – a 24-year-old deputy – continue to recover, worked as an aide in a Los Angeles Country library starting in 2011. In 2017, she applied to be a sheriff’s deputy, the Daily Mail reported.”

“Apolinar, who is a 31-year-old mother to a 6-year-old boy, and her partner were ambushed Saturday night while sitting in their car at a metro center in Compton. They were rushed to the hospital in serious condition.”

These cops weren’t harassing anybody.  They weren’t displaying any racist or socially unjust behavior.

They were just sitting there in their car.

For all we know, these two officers may be shining examples of what law enforcement officers should aspire to be.

But they were just randomly selected to be terminated…, just because they were cops.

“Moments after the shooting, the passenger door opens and a deputy stumbles out, hand on head, according to the newspaper. The driver-side door opens soon after.”

“Apolinar was struck multiple times in her face and torso but tended to her partner, who was also wounded after they were able to climb out of the police car.”

“In dispatch audio from the moments following the shooting, a weak-sounding voice can be heard saying: ‘998 Compton Pax,’ which is the code to signify a deputy-involved shooting, according to the Mail. When the dispatcher asks if it just happened, the barely-there voice reportedly responds: ‘Compton Pax, deputies down. Compton Pax 998.’”

“A reporter from local affiliate FOX LA shared a graphic image that shows the bloodied female deputy peering out from behind a pillar in the aftermath of the shooting.”

“Both deputies underwent surgery after the shooting Saturday evening and were expected to recover, Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva said Sunday.”

To tell you the truth, I’m sick and tired of hearing about cops being shot, and seriously injured, or killed.

It’s way past the time that justice needs to be impressed upon these punks.

The cops are being forced to do their jobs with one, or even both, hands tied behind their backs.

It’s time we insist their hands be untied.

It may also be time to install bullet proof glass into these squad cars.

Just sayin’.

Way to go Sleepy Joe!

Way to go Sleepy Joe…, AGAIN!

Andrew O’Reilly of Fox News reports that, “Biden botches military coronavirus death count, campaign says he accidentally cited Michigan numbers.”

I’ll tell you what, Sleepy Joe, and your collection of campaign oafs as well…, you “misspeak” on such a regular basis that I’m just going to assume that every time you appear somewhere you’re going to stick your foot in your mouth or just shamelessly lie.

From now on, only if you manage to speak correctly, coherently, and truthfully, will I consider it news!

“Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden misspoke during a campaign stop in Michigan, incorrectly saying that over 6,000 U.S. military members have died from the novel coronavirus.”

“Speaking in Warren, Mich., Biden cited the number of confirmed cases and deaths from COVID-19 in Michigan as being the numbers for the military, saying the armed forces had seen 118,984 cases and 6,114 deaths.”

That’s understandable…, MIIIICHIGAN and MIIIILITARY, MIIIILITARY and MIIIICHIGAN.

The correct numbers for the military are 40,026 cases and 7 deaths.

“Shortly after the event, Biden’s campaign quickly clarified that Biden had mixed up the numbers for Michigan with those from military. As of Wednesday, only seven members of the military had died from COVID-19.”

‘“Vice President Biden has the utmost respect for the men and women of the armed services and believes it’s the sacred duty of our country to properly equip them, look after their families when they’re deployed, and care for them when they return,’ Biden’s Deputy Rapid Response Director Michael Gwin said in a statement to Fox News.”

I’d have to say that’s a lie…, at least based on Biden’s prior 48 years in government.

And what do think about the position of Rapid Response Director?

He must be a very busy guy.

Clean up in aisle three!

“Gwin added: ‘To honor their service, the Vice President carries with him each day a card detailing the number of Americans who have given their lives for our country in Iraq and Afghanistan, and frequently cites that number to recognize their sacrifice.’”

C’mon…, seriously?

I think I’m going to have to call BS on that statement, Michael Gwin.

A card is a good idea, however, in Biden’s case, as he certainly wouldn’t be able to remember those numbers either.

Does he have a card in his wallet with his name printed in large letters and what office he is running for as well?

“Biden has taken criticism before for confusing statistics when it comes to the coronavirus pandemic.”

“In June, Biden incorrectly said 120 million people had died from the contagion in the U.S. [That’s close to a third of the country!].

‘“People don’t have a job, people don’t know where to go, they don’t know what to do,’ Biden said at the time.”

Speak for yourself, Joe.

‘“Now we have over 120 million dead from COVID,’ he added.”

“As of Wednesday, the U.S. has recorded just over 190,000 deaths from the virus.”

“While Biden appeared to immediately to catch himself after his gaffe in June — the pool video of Biden’s comments cuts off after he made the remark – President Trump’s campaign was quick to jump on the former vice president’s comment.”

‘“Joe Biden is very confused,’ the campaign tweeted out. ‘He’s not playing with a full deck, folks. #BarelyThereBiden.’”

“Biden’s verbal slip-ups have plagued him throughout his 2020 presidential bid, with the Trump campaign using them as fodder to argue that the presumptive Democratic nominee is unfit for the Oval Office.”

Why wouldn’t you use Biden’s unending parade of slip-ups as “fodder” in campaign ads?

The democrats go to the trouble of having to manufacture derogatory stories about The President on a daily basis.

Sleepy Joe just makes the republicans’ job a lot easier.

What in the Wide, Wide World of Sports is going on here?!

Okay…, so, let me get this straight.

A vice-presidential candidate, in the United States of America, mind you, is encouraging people to contribute money to the Minnesota Freedom Fund, which uses the money to bail criminals out of jail, who have looted businesses, burned down businesses and public buildings, and physically assaulted other people and police officers?

A current vice-presidential candidate, in the United States of America, is doing that?

Sadly, it is absolutely true.

Democrat candidate for vice-president, Kamala Harris, is encouraging people to contribute money to the Minnesota Freedom Fund, which uses the money to bail criminals out of jail, who have looted businesses, burned down businesses and public buildings, and physically assaulted other people and police officers.

This is not an issue at all for most democrats, but the Biden campaign has managed to recognize that a majority of the voters in America don’t see it that way.

So, as a result, they have sent their candidates, “Sleepy” Joe Biden and “Comrade” Kamala Harris, out to lie about their position, and pretend they care about law and order and protecting law abiding citizens.

David Marcus, of “The Federalist” website, reports, “Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have a problem. They know it, the media knows it, everyone knows it.”

“For three months they have ignored the deadly rioting that spread across the nation’s cities on both coasts and in between. They insisted that what we were seeing was ‘mostly peaceful’ protests and that Donald Trump and his evil allies were defaming decent Americans who just want social justice. Now they want to denounce these riots, but there is a problem: Harris is a financial supporter of the rioters she now claims to denounce.”

“Yes, that’s right, the Democrats’ vice presidential candidate was a huckster for a bail fund that sought to free violent criminals who were rioting on the streets of Minneapolis, and she was very effective at it.”

“In the wake of deadly fires and looting, Harris asked her five million plus Twitter followers to donate money to bail out the ‘protesters’ [criminals] arrested in the riots.”

Kamala wouldn’t want to help out any of the small business people who lost everything at the hands of these neo-fascist criminals…, she wants you to send in your hard-earned money to help get these neo-fascist criminals released from custody so they can go right back to destroying and looting more small businesses, and hurting more innocent people.

“Let’s meet a few of the beneficiaries of her [Kamala’s] largesse [generosity], shall we?”

“Fox 9 News in Minneapolis did the research for us. [That’s the kind of research MrEricksonRules likes!]”

“Here are a few of the criminals they found Harris did a solid for.”

“Among those bailed out by the Minnesota Freedom Fund (MFF) is a suspect who shot at police, a woman accused of killing a friend, and a twice convicted sex offender, according to court records reviewed by the FOX 9 Investigators.”

“According to attempted murder charges, Jaleel Stallings shot at members of a SWAT Team during the riots in May. Police recovered a modified pistol that looks like an AK-47. MFF paid $75,000 in cash to get Stallings out of jail.”

“Darnika Floyd is charged with second degree murder, for stabbing a friend to death. MFF paid $100,000 cash for her release.”

“Christopher Boswell, a twice convicted rapist, is currently charged with kidnapping, assault, and sexual assault in two separate cases. MFF paid $350,000 in cash for his release.”

And these are just a few of the many, many criminals Kamala sought to get released so they could get back to their business of destroying these cities and innocent lives.

“Kamala Harris and her friends in the corporate media, otherwise known as the propaganda arm of the Democratic Party [and fake news], will pretend this never happened and they are counting on voters to be too ignorant to know that it did.”

Definitely no shortage of ignorant voters!

“Harris was so eager to be on the rioters’ team that she literally raised money for them in the hopes that they could be released and foster further mayhem.”

And that’s what she thought was a good idea?

“That on its own would be bad enough. But the fact that she is now attempting to pretend she was against all of this violence, and looting, and arson, and destruction from the get go is an insulting joke. Did Harris really think that peaceful protesters obeying the rules were the ones arrested in Minneapolis? Of course she didn’t. She just assumed that justifying the unrest would help Democrats’ political chances. Now that this has been shown to be false, she is trying to change her position. But it’s way too late for that.”

“The American people aren’t stupid, they know exactly where Joe Biden, Kamala Harris and the Democratic Party stood on the riots.”

“They stood side by side with the rioters.”

“That they have now cynically come to regret that position is, I suppose, a good thing. But it does not erase the harm done in lives, property, and opportunity that their approval of rioting did.”

“We know whose side they were on, and it wasn’t the police.”

And it wasn’t on the side of law-abiding citizens either.

“The American people will not forget that.”

I hope not.

The latest China virus propaganda, courtesy of Esquire Magazine.

According to Jack Holmes of Esquire magazine, “The Hot New Conservative Talking Point on COVID-19 Is Extremely Wrong.”

Is it?

Is it really, Jack?

Is it really “extremely wrong?”

“The weekend’s big talking point for people more concerned with propping up the president’s campaign than grappling with reality was that a new CDC report found 94 percent of people who have been recorded as dying from COVID-19 have also had other causes of death listed.”

I’m not sure exactly how this can be viewed as, “propping up the president’s campaign,” unless exposing the truth about the China virus accomplishes this.

And you, Mr. Holmes, and your liberal friends, seem to be the ones “grappling with reality.”

Well, I guess you’re not really “grappling…,” it’s more like intentionally twisting reality.

“The thinking from some exceptionally large brains in the conservative media was that this meant only six percent of the recorded COVID deaths are actually deaths due to COVID, so that a big chunk of the 183,000 recorded deaths in the U.S. somehow shouldn’t count.”

Well, I gotta tell you, Jack…, 100% minus 94% does leave us with 6%, now doesn’t it?

And, these “large brained” people you speak of are not implying that the China virus had nothing to do with the deaths of the 94%…, they’re just correctly pointing out that only 6%, or 10,980 people died solely from the virus, with no underlying conditions, which would be about .0033% of the US population.

Even the entire 183,000 number is only .0555% of the US population.

Remember that .5 would represent one half of 1 percent.

Again, who do you feel is “grappling with reality,” Mr. Holmes?

Comparatively, in 2020, an estimated 606,520 people will die of cancer in the United States.

That’s 3 times the COVID related number, and 55 times the COVID only number.

And, the number of people who die from heart disease are pretty similar to the cancer numbers.

Holmes continues by saying, “This hasn’t yet spread as widely yet as some other right-wing tropes [please note that ‘trope’ is new liberal buzzword, meaning a ‘figurative idea’], but these days, you have to take it all seriously—and nip it in the bud early.”

Yes, we know Jack…, you gotta nip those nasty facts in the bud early, and put the proper liberal spin on them as soon as possible!

“It’s understandable that the president’s partisans would prefer not to confront his actual record on the pandemic.”

Now wait one darn minute there, Jack.

Who says, “The president’s partisans would prefer not to confront his actual record on the pandemic?”

I mean bsides you, of course?

Most people, who support The President, which would include me, feel he has done a good job dealing with the pandemic. It is the democrat governors and democrat mayors who have mishandled the handling of the China virus in my opinion, while Biden condemned President Trump’s early flight restrictions from China, and Pelosi and DeBlasio encouraged their constituents to ignore the virus and go out and have a good time.  You know, your friends, Jack.

Mr. Holmes then goes on to say, “Much like he’d [The President would] rather dwell on—and encourage—the unrest in the nation’s streets.”

I’m not sure where this bit of liberal propaganda BS came from, but it does give us clearer view as to where you’re coming from, Jack, if indeed we needed a clearer view.

Why, CNN…, you look like somebody just walked over your grave.

Brian Flood of Fox News reports that, “CNN’s in-house media pundit Brian Stelter was confronted by a C-SPAN caller on Tuesday who told him the liberal network is ‘dividing our nation’ and called CNN the ‘enemy of the truth.’”

Boom!

Bam!

Bingo!

“Stelter joined C-SPAN’s ‘Washington Journal’ to answer questions from viewers when a caller from Minnesota accused CNN of committing over 300,000 ‘distortions of truth’ since President Donald Trump took office.”

Oh, c’mon, 300,000?

Really?

It’s got to be much more than that!

‘“You guys always talk about how many times Trump has lied, I’ve calculated and, I think with your chyrons [electronically generated captions superimposed on a TV screen]…, I don’t know if there are any journalists left at CNN but I know that, if I were to estimate, about 300 different distortions or misinformation that we get out of CNN,’ the caller said. ‘And you have to watch them in the airport, which is harsh, but if you added all that up to 46 months, it comes out to be 300,000-plus distortions of truth.’”

“@TimJGraham tweeted, ‘Oh @brianstelter did not have a pile of fans calling in to C-SPAN today. This man really brought the pain, saying ‘CNN is the enemy of truth.’ Stelter said yeah, Trump has ‘radicalized’ people with this talk of media bias. Laughably claims MSM is structured to keep bias out!’”

“The caller then evoked Nick Sandmann, who famously settled a multimillion-dollar defamation lawsuit with CNN.”

‘“You defamed a child,’” the caller said, adding that CNN is ‘dividing our nation’ with partisan coverage.”

‘“And I don’t believe in dividing our nation, it hurts our great nation, and, so CNN is really the enemy of the truth,’ the caller said. ‘That’s my opinion, thank you.’”

“Stelter, who seemed to be used to such feedback and has been labeled media’s ‘hall monitor’ by critics in the past, said he was grateful for the call.”

Okay…, well that was just another lie!

‘“I know you’re not the only person that feels this way,’ Stelter said.”

Now that may be the biggest understatement of the year!

‘“There has been a process of radicalization that’s happened in this country with media bashing that is absolutely unprecedented.’”

Yes, Brian Stelter, there has definitely been a “process of radicalization in this country,” but it has nothing to do “media bashing.”

And, yes, the media bashing has been “absolutely unprecedented,” and rightfully so!

“Stelter then said that many journalists live in big cities and have ‘liberal leanings,’ but newsrooms should ensure that ‘bias doesn’t seep into the news coverage.’”

Oh, come on, Brian…, what we’re talking about here is MUCH MORE than “liberal leanings” and “bias.” What we’re talking about here is a concerted and coordinated liberal propagandizing effort.

‘“Yet sometimes it [regarding bias seeping into the news] does,’ Stelter said. ‘I absolutely acknowledge that. I think it’s different to talk about things as if they are enemies.’”

‘“No American is an enemy of another American.’”

Lie!

‘“No news outlet is an enemy of America.’”

Another lie!

So, now they’re willing to acknowledge their biases in an effort to buy their unabashed liberal propaganda campaign some time…, in their minds.

The media was intended to be the watchdog of the government on behalf of the American people.

Well, the American people have been sold down the river…, and what are left with is the equivalent of a fox guarding the hen house.

A more appropriate metaphor might be a nest of rats guarding your children.

In any case…, the liberal propaganda, fake news media was deservedly called-out here, and they are as guilty as hell.

In my mind, what these “news” outlets are guilty of is the equivalent of treason against our country.

Chicken Joe?

C’mon, Sleepy, Creepy Joe!

C’mon, chicken “dum-o-crats!”

C’mon, Crazy Nancy!

Nobody wants a president who’s a yellow-bellied chicken.

Except democrats, apparently.

adebates 10

Nobody wants a president who can’t stand toe-to-toe with an opponent.

Except democrats, apparently.

Nobody wants a president who can’t think on their feet without the aid of a teleprompter.

Except democrats, apparently.

adebate 4

It would seem they’re less afraid of being called chickens than of being called inept or incapacitated!

I don’t actually believe that Joe Biden is afraid to debate Presiddent Trump…, but he should be.

I believe Joe Biden believes he’s just fine, and capable…, but he isn’t.

I’m sorry, Joe…, but you’re just not “with it” anymore…, if you ever were.

According to Benjamin Fearnow, for Newsweek. “Democratic strategists and supporters of Vice President Joe Biden are urging him not to debate President Donald Trump in the lead-up to Election Day, citing Trump’s publicity stunts and disregard for the rules in 2016.”

adebates 5

adebates 3

adebates 6

Oh, you mean like how Hillary, her people, the DNC, and the fake news media conspired to get her the debate questions before one of the debates in 2016?

Is that the kind of “disregard for the rules” you’re referring to?

And we are completely aware of why “Democratic strategists and supporters of Vice President Joe Biden are urging him not to debate President Donald Trump.”

Because they know Biden is going to look like an incomprehensible old fool and an indefensible old fool, up against President Trump.

adebates 17

President Trump mopped the floor with the other 15 republican candidates in 2016, and then Hillary Clinton as well.

“Former White House Press Secretary, Joe Lockhart, joined several Democratic Party strategists in bluntly advising Biden, ‘whatever you do, don’t debate Trump.’ Speaking on CNN Saturday, Lockhart said Trump shouldn’t be given another platform which will enable him to ‘repeat lies,’ which he said occurred in the 2016 debates against Hillary Clinton.”

It’s hilarious!

adebates 9

These people are on their knees begging Sleepy Joe to bail out of the presidential debates.

They have obviously calculated that it’s better to appear weak and afraid, as opposed to exposing yourself as an incomprehensible old fool and an indefensible old fool.

‘“We saw in the debates in 2016 Hillary Clinton showed a mastery of the issues, every point she made was more honest and bested Trump,’ Lockhart told CNN.”

adebates 19

What debates were you watching, Lockhart?

‘“But Trump came out of the debates doing better I think because he just kept repeating the same old lies: “we’re going to build a wall and Mexico is going to pay for it,” “we’re going to keep all those Mexican rapists out of the country,” and “we’re going to make great trade deals” — none of these things have come to pass.’”

‘“Giving him that national forum to continue to spout — get him to 21,000 or 22,000 lies — I think just isn’t worth it for the Democrats or for Biden,’ Lockhart continued.”

“Several opinion columns published in recent months have called for an outright cancellation of the debates, describing them — alongside the party conventions — as outdated political rituals designed purely for TV ratings.”

“Longtime Democratic strategist and former Hillary Clinton senior adviser Zac Petkanas agreed with calls for Biden to back out of any and all debates with Trump in the coming months.”

“As it stands currently, there are three presidential debates and one vice presidential debate scheduled between September 29 and October 22.”

‘“Biden shouldn’t feel obligated to throw Trump a lifeline by granting him any debates at all. This is not a normal presidential election and Trump is not a legitimate candidate,’ Petkanas tweeted last week.”

“Speculation over the cancellation of the Biden versus Trump 2020 presidential debates increased last week after the University of Notre Dame withdrew its campus as host of the September 29 event over coronavirus concerns. The University of Michigan withdrew from hosting a presidential debate on its campus in June, which has since been rescheduled at the Adrienne Arsht Center in Miami.”

“Political commentator Bill Kristol, a so-called ‘Never Trump’ conservative, praised Notre Dame for withdrawing as host of the first presidential debate over coronavirus concerns.”

‘“Good. No need to go to any trouble to replace this debate. Indeed, I gather Biden’s already all booked up with zoom calls in those weeks. Also, the Jewish holidays. And the new Perry Mason series. Too bad!’ Kristol quipped on Twitter.”

What a pathetic “never Trumper.”

Kristol is just another tool of the old estabilishment politicians who really don’t want to accomplish anything.  All they want to do is blow hot air and kick the country’s problems down the road.

“The first presidential debate is now set to take place at Case Western Reserve University and the Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland on September 29; the first vice presidential debate is currently set to take place at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City on October 7. The second presidential debate is scheduled for the Arsht Center on October 15, and the third and final debate is set to take place on October 22 on the campus of Belmont University in Nashville.”

But wait…, there’s more!

adebates 18

Crazy Nancy is now joining in with the chorus!

adebates 16

Marisa Schultz of Fox News reports, “Pelosi says Biden shouldn’t debate Trump: ‘I wouldn’t legitimize a conversation with him.’”

“House Speaker Nancy Pelosi suggested Thursday that former Vice President Joe Biden cancel his three scheduled debates with President Trump because the commander-in-chief would ‘belittle’ the forum and engage in ‘skullduggery.’”

“Skullduggery?!”

adebates 12

adebates 11

‘“I don’t think that there should be any debates,’ Pelosi said out of the blue at a news conference at the Capitol, saying she doesn’t want the debates to be ‘an exercise in skullduggery.’”

adebates 13

“Biden told MSNBC Thursday he’s still planning on showing up to the high-profile faceoffs with the president.”

‘“As long as the [debate] commission continues down the straight and narrow as they have, I’m going to debate him,’ Biden said.”

What does that mean?

That sounds like you’re building-in a little wiggle room there, Joe.

‘“I’m going to be a fact-checker on the floor as I’m debating him,’ he added.”

Yes, please, feel free Sleepy Joe.

Will that “fact checking” apply to yourself as well?

adebate 7

Just keeping it real.

“Pelosi is just the latest high-profile Democrat to offer a major piece of advice to the former vice president.”

“Republicans pointed to Pelosi’s remarks as another sign that Democrats are trying to hide Biden.”

“Hide Biden?”

Really?

I think we all understand that Sleepy Joe has been relegated exclusively to his basement by now.

“Debates have been an issue of contention for weeks as the Trump campaign has pushed for an additional early debate to coincide with early voting that will be underway in states.”

It does make sense to have at least one debate before people can vote…, that is, if not afraid to debate in the first place.

“And the idea of abandoning debates all together made headlines after a New York Times op-ed earlier this August argued that presidential debates should be ‘scrapped,’ with critics suggesting that it’s the latest effort by the media to prevent Biden from debating Trump.”

“Pelosi made the comment at her weekly news conference, unprompted, and her advice was not in response to a question about debates. She cited Trump’s ‘disgraceful’ performance at the 2016 debate when he was ‘stalking’ Clinton as one reason Biden should break tradition and sit out the debates.”

If you watch that debate, the claim that President Trump was “stalking” Hillary, was completely and only imagined by Mrs. Clinton…, then regurgitated by ignorant democrats and their fake news media friends.

“So, I think that he’ll probably act in a way that is beneath the dignity of the presidency; he does that every day,’ Pelosi said of Trump. ‘But I think it will also belittle what the debates are supposed to be about. And they’re not to be about skullduggery on the part of somebody who has no respect for the office he holds, much less the democratic process.’”

adebates 15

adebates 14

‘“Why else would he try to undermine the elections in the manner in which he is doing?’ Pelosi continued. ‘So, if Joe Biden asked me what I thought about it, [I’d say] I don’t think that he should dignify that conversation with Donald Trump.’”

The only problem is, Sleepy Joe’s wife, Jill Biden, already declared her man “would be there for the debates.”

And Sleepy Joe, himself, has said, “I can hardly wait to debate Trump.”

“Shortly after Pelosi’s comments, the Biden campaign responded that while they agree with the speaker’s characterization of Trump, Biden will go through with the debates as planned.

“The Biden campaign already agreed in June to three debates in September and October in a letter to the Commission on Presidential Debates, in addition to a vice-presidential debate.”

‘“We certainly agree with Speaker Pelosi on her views of the President’s behavior,’ Biden campaign spokesperson Andrew Bates said. ‘But just as she has powerfully confronted that behavior in the Oval Office and the Cabinet Room, Joe Biden looks forward to doing the same on the debate stage.’”

That’s good to hear, and that’s tough talk…, but talk is talk, and talk is cheap.

We’ll see.

“The first debate is scheduled for [Tuesday] Sept. 29.”

I’ll definitely be watching…, if Sleepy Joe actually shows up.

My favorite political memes!   

Here is my first collection of my favorite political memes!

“Meme” is pronounced [MEEM], and rhymes with “seem,” if you’re not familiar with the term.

meme 1

A “meme” is a humorous image that is copied and enhanced (often with the addition of a message, joke, or saying) and spread rapidly by Internet users.

So, without any further adieu…, bring on the memes!

Hershel Walker and Kim Klacic at the RNC: The whole truth, and nothing but the truth.

Caleb Parke of Fox News reports, “Raised a Democrat and a longtime friend of President Trump, former Heisman Trophy winner Herschel Walker told ‘The Ingraham Angle’ [a nightly news and opinion-based talk show on the Fox News channel] Monday night he wanted to give people a picture of who the president really is on the first night of the 2020 Republican National Convention.”

ahandk 1

‘“What this president has done for America needs to be known, and I think it’s not being known,’ the former Heisman Trophy winner told Laura Ingraham.”

“Host Laura Ingraham praised Walker for one of the ‘most powerful and memorable speeches of the night’ in which the former NFL player shared advice Trump gave him many years ago and why he is such a strong supporter now.”

‘“I don’t think people really know Donald Trump. I think they look at Donald Trump from a tweet or look at from what he says, and they’re not looking at what he does,’ Walker told Ingraham.”

On top of that, many Americans get a distorted impression of President Trump from the fake news, liberal propaganda media.  The media declines to give this president credit for doing anything positive, while at the same time focusing on negative witch hunts, hoaxes, and personal attacks.

‘“Donald Trump has done more in three years than most presidents have done in eight, and what’s so special about him is he cares about people and that’s what I wanted people to know.’”

“The Trump-supporting football legend spoke about his friendship and how he prays the president gets more time in office.”

ahandk 6

‘“I’ve had a personal friendship with Donald Trump for 37 years, and during all this time he has never, never, never asked Herschel Walker to speak for him, and after they’ve called him all types of names, and I know Donald Trump,’ Walker said. ‘I’ve been with him in very, very special moments and I’ve never seen that in him and that’s why I wanted to speak for him.’”

ahandk 5

Walker noted that he “grew up in the deep south” and that he “knows what racism looks like,” and that “Donald Trump is no racist.”

So, here’s a respected, genuine, and sincere Black man, who has had a “personal friendship with Donald Trump” for 37 years, but the racist and disingenuous commentators and talking heads at CNN and MSNBC continue to attack The President without and basis for their attacks, and claim to know him better.

“He [Walker] added, ‘What this president has done for America needs to be known, and I think it’s not being known. People do not want to mention even the things he’s done in three years … normally when you run for a political party, you don’t know what you say. This president here has done almost everything he said that he was going to do and that counts.’”

“Responding to Democratic Georgia state Rep. Vernon Jones’ comments about being attacked by his own party and given Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s controversial comments about Black Americans voting for him, Walker said, ‘I’m not going to call him what even his vice president called him during the debate, he had some racist tendencies.’”

“Walker, 58, said he’s not calling Biden a racist but questions how Democratic vice-presidential nominee, Kamala Harris, can support him now after what she said about him in the primaries [regarding race and sexual assault claims].”

Good question!

But remember, we’re talking about politicians here, and more specifically, democrat politicians. They have NO shame and NO moral standards.

‘“We have a Democratic Party, today, not telling anyone where they stand on anything,’ he said. ‘That is the honest truth, but they want you to go to a voting booth and make an emotional decision.’”

The democrats don’t want to advertise where they stand on issues because they stand with Communist China, and socialist/communist/fascist regimes all around the world, and they know they can’t get elected if this ugly truth is let out of the bag.

“Walker said he wants young African Americans to be free thinkers and educate themselves on the issues.”

‘“I was raised Democrat, and I didn’t know any better, and what’s strange is I’m not saying the Democrat Party is bad, I’m saying it doesn’t fit what I believe,’ he said.”

That’s okay Hershel, but I’ll say it…, I’ll say the democrat party is bad without any reservation.

‘“First of all, I believe in God, I believe in family, I believe in the American flag, I believe in the national anthem. I believe in law and order. While the Democrat Party has not said that they believe in any of those things. That’s what made America beautiful.’”

Walker also believes we can be patriotic and supportive of social justice at the same time.  It doesn’t have to be one or the other.

“The former running back for the [University of Georgia], Dallas Cowboys, Minnesota Vikings, Philadelphia Eagles and New York Giants says sports and politics should be separate.”

“It seems like we have a political civil war right now where people are afraid to speak their mind and that’s sad.’”

And in many cases, people aren’t “afraid to speak their mind,” but they’re being attacked, shunned, boycotted, censored and cancelled.

It is an all-out attack on the first amendment rights of all Americans who won’t bow down to the prescribed liberal narrative.

Megan Henney of Fox News reports, “Baltimore [congressional] candidate Kim Klacik puts Dems on notice over Black support: ‘You’ve Ignored us for too long.’”

Republicans Hold Virtual 2020 National Convention

“Kim Klacik says, “The days of Black voters blindly supporting Democrats are coming to an end!”

“Kim Klacik, a GOP congressional candidate who suggested that Democrats don’t care about Black voters in a viral campaign ad, took aim at Joe Biden in a speech during the first night of the Republican National Convention, accusing the Democratic nominee of believing that Black Americans ‘can’t think for ourselves.’”

You can check out her campaign ad below.

https://twitter.com/kimKBaltimore/status/1295461903268040707?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1295930978582568963%7Ctwgr%5E&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.foxnews.com%2Fpolitics%2Fkim-klacik-republican-national-convention-speech

“Klacik, who is Black, is the Republican nominee running to represent Maryland’s 7th Congressional district, a Democratic stronghold that was represented for years by the late Rep. Elijah Cummings.”

You know…, Elijah Cummings the saint, Elijah Cummings the fearless fighter for civil rights and justice, Elijah Cummings the African American icon.

ahandk 2

Now ponder his perception with the reality of the condition of his congressional district.

What we’re really talking about here is Elijah Cummings the fraud.

I’ll give Elijah Cummings one thing though…, he sure was good at pulling the wool over the eyes of all of his constituents’ and keeping his flock of democrat sheep on the plantation!

‘“Joe Biden believes we can’t think for ourselves — that the color of someone’s skin dictates their political views,’ she said in her remarks. ‘We’re not buying the lies anymore — you and your party have ignored us for too long.’”

“Black voters as a whole helped Biden clinch the Democratic nomination after a decisive victory during the South Carolina primary. But that success hinges on his support among older Black voters.”

“Klacik rose to national prominence last week when President Trump shared one of her campaign ads, which shows her marching by abandoned rowhouses in a red dress and matching stilettos, lambasting Democratic politicians for abandoning Black Americans.”

‘“Black people don’t have to vote Democrat,’ she says at the end of the 2.5-minute video. Baltimore’s population is about 60% Black, according to the Census Bureau.”

“The ad, titled “Black Lives Don’t Matter to Democrats,” has been viewed more than 11.4 million times.”

“Klacik hit that same theme again on Monday during her address, accusing Democrats of running Baltimore — and other major cities across the country – ‘into the ground,’ despite high taxes.”

And who can dispute that claim?

‘“And yet, the Democrats still assume that Black people will vote for them, no matter how much they let us down and take us for granted,’ she continued. ‘Nope. We’re sick of it and we’re not going to take it anymore. The days of blindly supporting the Democrats are coming to an end!’”

Amen, Kim…, and let’s hope you’re right!

THE FAKE NEWS!

The mainstream media has been described and labeled many ways.

They’ve been called “Fake news.”

They’ve been described as having a liberal bias.

They’ve been called “liberal propaganda.”

And they’ve been described as the “communication arm of the Democrat National Committee.”

All with good reason.

acover 3

It wasn’t long ago that we were debating the existence of a “liberal bias” of those within the mainstream media.

Well, the debate is over.

The bias exists, and the mainstream media won’t even bother to deny it anymore.

In fact, we are way past “bias” at this point.

We are at a point where the mainstream media has chosen to abandon any sense of objectivity, and have become co-conspirators and operatives of the democrat establishment.

acover 2

Don’t believe me?

Brian Flood of Fox News reports that, “Evening newscasts are 150 times more negative toward Trump than Biden, study says.”

acover 5

‘“That’s not news reporting — that’s a negative advertising campaign in action,’ Rich Noyes [MRC research director] says.”

acover 10

“The evening newscasts on ABC, CBS and NBC have been 150 times more negative when covering President Trump compared to presumptive 2020 Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, according to a new study.”

And that’s only the major networks!

Can you imagine the negativity if CNN and MSNBC had been included?

acover 11

That number may well have been 250 times, 350 times, 500 times “more negative when covering President Trump compared to 2020 Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden!”

“The Media Research Center [MRC] analyzed all statements made by reporters, anchors and nonpartisan sources, such as experts or voters, made on CBS’ “Evening News,” “NBC Nightly News” and ABC’s “World News Tonight” from June 1 through July 31.”

“The findings showed that Biden has received eight positive evaluative statements with only four negative comments made about the former vice president in a two-month period. But when it comes to Trump, the study showed that coverage has been overwhelmingly negative.”

“CBS’ “Evening News,” “NBC Nightly News” and ABC’s “World News Tonight” made a whopping 634 negative evaluative statements about Trump over the same time period, according to the study. The evening newscasts made 34 positive statements about the president over the same time period.”

acover 13

“MRC research director Rich Noyes, who conducted the study, feels that ‘millions of viewers are witnessing the most biased presidential campaign coverage in modern media history.’”

acover 7

Without a doubt, although 2016 was nothing to sneeze at either!

acover 8

“Noyes noted that ABC, CBS and NBC evening newscasts focused 512 minutes of airtime on Trump over the two-month sample, which is nine times more than the 58 minutes spent on Biden.”

acover 9

‘“I’ve been studying the news media and elections for more than 35 years. Trust me — there’s never been anything like it,’ Noyes wrote. ‘Do the math, and viewers heard 150 TIMES more negative comments about Trump than Biden. That’s not news reporting — that’s a negative advertising campaign in action.’”

acover 4

acover 12

“{President] Trump regularly blasts the mainstream media for what he feels is unfair coverage and recently accused Biden of avoiding tough questions from reporters.”

‘“If you consider the evening newscasts a reliable gauge of the liberal media at large (cable news, big newspapers, etc.), it means Biden has enjoyed an army of so-called journalists conducting a massive negative information campaign against his opponent, while he is sheltered from any scrutiny,’ Noyes wrote.”

Again…, no doubt.

‘“Controversies from the spring, such as allegations from former staffer Tara Reade that he sexually assaulted her in the 1990s, completely disappeared from his evening news coverage in June and July,’ Noyes added.”

acover 14

acover 18

“As a result, Trump said on Monday that he ‘has no choice’ but to campaign during the Democratic National Convention because Biden gets preferential treatment from the media.”

acover 16

‘“We have a guy that doesn’t come out of his basement and the media covers [for him],’ Trump said on during a phone interview on ‘Fox & Friends.’”

acover 6

‘“When they ask me questions, I have these people, there is fire out of their eyes … they’re asking me questions and I see the fire is burning in their eyes,’ Trump said. ‘I look at some of them and say, boy, how can you have so much hatred?’”

“Trump then said Biden doesn’t have to deal with the same type of hostility from the press. In fact, the Democratic nominee doesn’t have to deal with the press at all.”

‘“He doesn’t take any questions from reporters,’ Trump said. ‘Here I am getting bombs thrown at me every day by people that are totally, you know, frankly dishonest reporters, they’re espousing the view of the radical left, but here I am, bombs every day … but this guy doesn’t come out of his basement.’”

acover 19

With all due respect, Mr. President, and I am saying “with all due respect,” Sleepy Joe did do a hard-hitting interview with rapper Cardi B (her real name being Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar) the other day!

I mean, let’s give credit where credit is due!

The “1619 Project:” What the hell is it, and why the hell is it?

In a nutshell, the “1619 Project” is just more racially divisive, liberal propaganda…, but let’s dissect this “project” a bit more.

a1619 28

This “1619 Project” may be something new for many of us, or something you may have heard about, but aren’t really sure what it is.  Or, you may think you know exactly what it is.

In any case, here’s what the 1619 Project is.

The 1619 Project is an ongoing project, developed by The New York Times Magazine in 2019 [Warning! Warning! Danger Will Robinson!], with the goal of “reframing American history” around slavery and the contributions of African Americans.

a1619 7

a1619 9

a1619 8

Can we not properly reflect back about slavery, and highlight the contributions made to our country by African Americans, without “reframing American history?”

The answer, of course, is “yes…,” but not if you’re going to use these topics to push an anti-American agenda, and hopefully create racial divisiveness.

The project was timed for the 400th anniversary of the arrival of the first enslaved Africans in the Virginia colony in 1619, and suggests that this date represents the “nation’s birth year,” not 1776.

a1619 5

I cannot see how this could be the case…, in any case!

There was no “nation” present at the time to even be born.

Nor was there even any idea of an independent nation being conceived.

a1619 1

The 1619 Project is an interactive project [not really] directed by Nikole Hannah-Jones, a reporter for The New York Times, with contributions by the newspaper’s writers, including essays on the history of different aspects of contemporary American life which the authors believe have “roots in slavery and its aftermath.”

a1619 2

Hannah-Jones, who is supposedly an “investigative journalist,” has written about topics such as racial segregation, desegregation and re-segregation in American schools, and housing discrimination, civil rights, and social justice and injustice, and has spoken about these issues on national public radio broadcasts (NPR).

I would call her more of an opinion writer, or an historical fiction writer.

We know that some people see EVERYTHING through racial goggles.

a1619 22

“The project” also includes poems, short fiction, and a photo essay. Originally conceived as a special issue of The New York Times magazine, for August 20, 2019, it was soon turned into a full-fledged “project,” including a special broadsheet section in the newspaper, live events, and a multi-episode podcast series.

The term “project” seems like it is being used as a cover word for what is an “indoctrination curriculum” and a propaganda vehicle.

The fact is, African Americans would like us all to think they make up about half of America’s population.

a1619 6

But that simply is not the case.

In 1860, those of African descent accounted for about 14 percent of the population.  In 2020 they comprise about 13½ percent of the population.  Yet they would like their influence and representativeness to look more like 50 percent.

Joseph Carroll for the Gallup News Service reports that, “The latest U.S. Census findings on the increasing diversity of America have received considerable attention this year. Americans seem to realize that the United States is a diverse nation, but recent polling suggests the public thinks the nation is more diverse than it actually is. Americans generally overestimate, to a significant degree, the percentage of the U.S. population that is either Black or Hispanic.”

“Perhaps because lower-income and non-white Americans are more likely to come into contact with blacks and Hispanics, these subgroups are most likely to overestimate the U.S. black and Hispanic populations. The average non-white estimates that 40% of the U.S. population is black and 35% of the population is Hispanic. Americans earning less than $20,000 estimate the black percentage of the U.S. population to be 42%, and the Hispanic percentage to comprise 37%.”

Anyway…, getting back to “the project…”

“The project” has sparked criticism and debate among prominent historians and political commentators, however. In a letter published in The New York Times in December 2019, historians Gordon S. Wood, James M. McPherson, Sean Wilentz, Victoria Bynum and James Oakes expressed “strong reservations” about “the project” and requested factual corrections, accusing “the project” of putting ideology before historical understanding.

Really?!

a1619 26

Imagine that!

Followers of MrEricksonRules already know that far be it for any liberal to let those nagging facts get in the way of their prescribed narrative!

In response, Jake Silverstein, the editor of The New York Times Magazine, defended the accuracy of the 1619 Project and declined to issue corrections.

What’d I tell you?!

Jake Silverstein probably still thinks “Russian collusion” is a factual thing!

a1619 23

a1619 24

In March 2020, historian Leslie M. Harris, who served as a fact-checker for the 1619 Project, wrote that the authors had ignored her corrections, and was told that “the project” was a “needed corrective” to prevailing historical narratives.

Like I said, facts be damned!  The end justifies the means!

“Project” creator Nikole Hannah-Jones was awarded the 2020 Pulitzer Prize for Commentary on the 1619 Project.

Oh…, of course she was!

Does winning a Pulitzer prize actually mean anything anymore?

Pulitzer prizes are now solely handed out to liberal propagandists as a reward for being good “useful idiots!”

“The project” addresses “the beginning of American slavery.” which it places in 1619.  It was launched in August 2019 to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the arrival of enslaved Africans in the English colonies and its legacy. The first enslaved Africans in the English colonies of mainland North America arrived in August 1619. A ship carrying 20–30 people who had been enslaved by a joint African-Portuguese war on Ndongo in modern Angola, landed at Point Comfort in the colony of Virginia.

“The project” was based on a proposal by Hannah-Jones to dedicate an issue of the magazine to a re-examination of the legacy of slavery in America, at the anniversary of the arrival of the first slaves to Virginia.

Please note, the truth is, these 20-30 slaves were brought here to be pedaled, THEY WERE NOT REQUESTED TO BE SENT HERE.

Michael Guasco for SMITHSONIANMAG.COM says, “As historian John Thornton has shown us, the African men and women who appeared almost as if by chance in Virginia in 1619 were there because of a chain of events involving Portugal, Spain, the Netherlands and England. Virginia was part of the story, but it was a mere blip on the radar screen.”

The plan of “the project” was to challenge the notion that the history of the United States began in 1776.

a1619 25

1776 is celebrated in the United States as the official beginning of the nation, with the Declaration of Independence issued on July 4, even though we did not officially declare nationhood with this act.

It wasn’t until 1783 that the colonies defeated the British to gain their independence.

And it wasn’t until 1789 that The Constitution was adopted, and George Washington became our first president.

The initial “project” quickly grew into an even larger project. “The project” encompasses multiple issues of the magazine, with related materials in multiple other publications of the Times as well as a project curriculum developed in collaboration with the Pulitzer Center, for use in schools.

So, we’re going to be teaching this stuff in schools, even though, as stated before, “In March 2020, historian Leslie M. Harris, who served as a fact-checker for the 1619 Project, wrote that the authors had ignored her corrections, but that ‘the project’ was a ‘needed corrective’ to prevailing historical narratives,” and that “the project” was accused of “putting ideology before historical understanding.”

a1619 12

The project employed a panel of historians and had support from the Smithsonian, for fact-checking, research and development. The project was envisioned with the condition that almost all of the contributions would be from African-American contributors, deeming the perspective of black writers an essential element of the story to be told.

Of course…, even though none of these contributors were actual slaves, nor were their parents…, but they were “an essential element of ‘the story’ to be told.

And, oh, what a “story” it was.

The Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting has made available free online lesson plans, is collecting further lesson plans from teachers, and helps arrange for speakers to visit classes. The Center considers most of the lessons usable by all grades from elementary school through college.

Wow…, this is really a full-blown indoctrination pity party, designed to make white people feel as guilty as possible, and black people to feel as victimized and as important as possible.

a1619 27

a1619 14

a1619 21

According to Vox [an internet news site], as of August 19, 2019, the project, harshly criticized by some conservatives, had “largely earned praise from academics, journalists and politicians alike.”

Ahhh, the three liberal amigos! Always ready to worship at the altar of racism and social injustice.

a1619 17

The positive reviews include the analysis by Alexandria Neason for the Columbia Journalism Review, and the review by Ellen McGirt, published in Fortune magazine which declared the project “wide-reaching and collaborative, unflinching, and insightful” and a “dramatic and necessary corrective to the fundamental lie of the American origin story.”

I guess that would depend on what “American origin story” you’re referring to.

Timothy Sandefur who deemed “the project’s” goal worthy, but observed that the articles persistently went wrong trying to connect everything with slavery. Phillip W. Magness who wrote that “the Project” provided a distorted economic history borrowed from “bad scholarship” of the New History of Capitalism (NHC), and Rich Lowry who wrote there was much truth and much to learn from in Hannah-Jones’ lead essay but it left out unwelcome facts about slavery, smeared the revolution, distorted The Constitution and misrepresented the founding era and Lincoln.

Is that all?

a1619 15

The World Socialist Web Site criticized what its editors consider the Times’ reactionary, politically motivated “falsification of history” that wrongly centers around racial rather than class conflict, and published a series of interviews with prominent historians critical of the project.

Marxist political scientist Adolph Reed dismissed the 1619 Project as “the appropriation of the past in support of whatever kind of ‘just-so’ stories about the present are desired.”

Let’s be clear…, the socialists and Marxists like using African Americans when it’s convenient, but they definitely have their own agendas.

In February 2020, a rival project called the 1776 Project, published with the support of The Washington Examiner, was launched by a number of African American academics who dispute the narrative of the 1619 Project.

Hmmm…, well isn’t that interesting?

I’m sure they were quickly shuffled off to a corner of some unimportant library somewhere.

In December 2019, five leading American historians, Sean Wilentz, James McPherson, Gordon Wood, Victoria Bynum and James Oakes, sent a letter to the Times expressing objections to the framing of the project and accusing the authors of a “displacement of historical understanding by ideology.” The letter disputed the claim, made in the Hannah-Jones’ introductory essay to the 1619 Project, that “one of the primary reasons the colonists decided to declare their independence from Britain was because they wanted to protect the institution of slavery.” The Times published the letter along with a rebuttal from the magazine’s editor-in-chief, Jake Silverstein. Wood responded in a letter by saying, “I don’t know of any colonist who said that they wanted independence in order to preserve their slaves.  No colonist expressed alarm that the mother country was out to abolish slavery in 1776.” In an article in The Atlantic, Wilentz responded to Silverstein, writing, “No effort to educate the public in order to advance social justice can afford to dispense with a respect for basic facts.” and disputing the factual accuracy of Silverstein’s defense of the project.

The publication of the project received varied reactions from political figures.

And these reactions were split along party lines, as you would expect.

Democratic Senator Kamala Harris praised the project, in a tweet, stating “The #1619Project is a powerful and necessary reckoning of our history. We cannot understand and address the problems of today without speaking truth about how we got here.”

a1619 20

Several high-profile conservatives criticized the project. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich criticized the project as “brainwashing” and “propaganda,” in a tweet, and later wrote an op-ed characterizing it as “left-wing propaganda masquerading as the truth.” Republican Senator Ted Cruz also equated it with propaganda.

In July 2020, Republican Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas proposed the “Saving American History Act of 2020.” prohibiting K-12 schools from using federal funds to teach curriculum related to the 1619 project, and make schools that did ineligible for federal professional-development grants. Cotton added that “The 1619 Project is a racially divisive and revisionist account of history that threatens the integrity of the Union by denying the true principles on which it was founded.”

But wait, there’s more.

alabor 16

According to Desi Gomez of the Los Angeles Times, “The ‘1619 Project,’ the New York Times’ award-winning multimedia series that examines slavery’s lingering effects on contemporary life, is about to go widescreen with the help of Oprah Winfrey and Lionsgate.”

a1619 4

“Creator Nikole Hannah-Jones, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist for the New York Times Magazine, and the NYT will work with Winfrey and Lionsgate to adapt “The 1619 Project” into a set of feature films and television shows.”

“Hannah-Jones and Winfrey will produce all adapted content alongside Caitlin Roper, an editor of ‘The 1619 Project’ and head of scripted entertainment at the New York Times.”

“Winfrey expressed her honor to be involved in the adaptation in a tweet, recalling that she ‘stood in tearful applause for the profound offering that [the project] was giving our culture and nation.’”

“A timeline for its adaptation has not yet been revealed.”

I can’t wait.

Please remember, while whites in this country are berated on a daily basis by angry African Americans, that 360,222 men died, from the North, in the Civil War, to free the slaves and end slavery in America.

I wonder if that will make it into “The 1619 Project” movie anywhere?
