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!

Sleepy Joe will be a “no show!”

Yes…, Sleepy Joe will be a “no show” when it comes to any kind of presidential debate.

There’s no way the democrats let Creepy Joe out on a stage to go one-on-one with President Trump!

I’m calling this one right now.

adebate 4

Again…, there’s no way the democrats let Creepy Joe out on a stage to go one-on-one with President Trump!

adebate 1

Every time they let Quid Pro Quo Joe out of his basement, he sticks his foot in his mouth.

adebate 10

Most recently Sleepy Joe proclaimed that “120 million Americans died” from the Chinese virus, coronavirus, Covid-19, or whatever you want to call it.

adebate 8

Yes, Joe…, losing over a third of our country’s population would be a very serious matter, if that were the case.

Which it isn’t.

adebate 9

The democrats will use any and all kinds of excuses to avoid Biden participating in a live debate with President Trump…, and the fake news media, of course, will give him a pass.

adebate 7

We’ll hear how debates are actually not that important and how they really don’t add much to the process anymore.

We’ll hear that no debate is worth spreading the coronavirus and possibly killing others!

Why, it’s a matter of life and death!

Mark my words…, THERE WILL BE NO LIVE PRESIDENTIAL DEBATES.

That being said…, as a response to this, I humbly suggest that President Trump and his campaign produce their own version of a “debate,” using a stand-up cardboard cut-out of Sleepy Joe to stand at the opposing podium, and someone who sounds like Creepy Joe to provide his verbal “answers.”

Can you imagine?!

This world be hysterical, totally effective, and challenge the Super Bowl for the most watched television program of the year.

Would this type of event be right up President Trump’s alley or what?!

It would be an absolute win-win-win-win-win scenario!

BLM is BS!

Now I’m not saying I disagree with the belief that black lives matter.

Of course, black lives matter.  All lives matter.

What I’m referring to here is the BLM organization. The official Black Lives Matter organization.

These people have co-opted the whole concept of “black lives matter” and are attempting to use it as a racial wedge…, as a “smokescreen” to hide their real intent…, which is to take away our freedom and destroy America as we know it.

That’s why I say, “BLM is BS!”

ablm 4

Adam Ford, for DISRN.com, reports that, “A 2015 video clip has surfaced of an interview with Black Lives Matter founder Patrisse Cullors in which she assures her interviewer that the group has an underlying ideology, saying, ‘We’re trained Marxists.’”

ablm 1

“Trained Marxists,” huh?

Has anyone asked her where she got this training, and from who?

It would be interesting to hear that answer.

“Responding to the interviewer’s concern that the BLM movement might not have enough of a ‘clear ideological structure,’ Cullors responded by saying that she and another co-founder ‘in particular’ are dedicated to the ideology of Communist leader Karl Marx.”

ablm 3

‘“We actually do have an ideological frame. Myself and Alicia in particular, we’re trained organizers. We are trained Marxists. We are super versed on ideological theories.’”

“Alicia, whom Cullors mentioned, is Alicia Garza. Garza, Cullors, and a third woman, Opal Tometi, founded Black Lives Matter together.”

What’s funny to me is that Cullors and her friends actually think they’d have a seat at this “Marxist table of control” when the dust settled.

Believe me…, they’d be brushed aside by these Nazi/fascist/communists in a heartbeat.

“BLM’s website lists many far-left ideals in its list of core beliefs, including [but not limited to]:”

“We are self-reflexive and do the work required to dismantle cisgender privilege and uplift Black trans folk, especially Black trans women who continue to be disproportionately impacted by trans-antagonistic violence.”

Say what?

That’s the first item in a list of your core beliefs?

“We build a space that affirms Black women and is free from sexism, misogyny, and environments in which men are centered.”

I haven’t really seen BLM build anything…, in fact, just the opposite.  All I see BLM do is tearing things down, burning things up, taking things that aren’t theirs, generally vandalizing anything in their wake.

“We practice empathy. We engage comrades with the intent to learn about and connect with their contexts.”

Again…, say what?

As far as “practicing empathy” goes, I would suggest practicing a lot more.

And I get the “comrades” reference.  As a tie-in to The Communist Manifesto.

‘We make our spaces family-friendly and enable parents to fully participate with their children. We dismantle the patriarchal practice that requires mothers to work ‘double shifts’ so that they can mother in private even as they participate in public justice work.”

Excuse me BLM, but your “spaces” appear anything but “family-friendly.”

“We disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and ‘villages’ that collectively care for one another, especially our children, to the degree that mothers, parents, and children are comfortable.”

We foster a queer‐affirming network. When we gather, we do so with the intention of freeing ourselves from the tight grip of heteronormative thinking, or rather, the belief that all in the world are heterosexual (unless s/he or they disclose otherwise).”

I encourage you to check out The Communist Manifesto for yourself.

https://www.marxists.org/archive/marx/works/1848/communist-manifesto/

The following is a small excerpt from The Communist Manifesto that may shed some light on BLM’s real goals.

“In short, the Communists everywhere support every revolutionary movement against the existing social and political order of things.

Finally, they labour everywhere for the union and agreement of the democratic parties of all countries [referring to the preferred New World Order].

The Communists disdain to conceal their views and aims. They openly declare that their ends can be attained only by the forcible overthrow of all existing social conditions. Let the ruling classes tremble at a Communistic revolution. The proletarians have nothing to lose but their chains. They have a world to win.”

The only real difference I see, is that The Communist Manifesto is aimed at workers, while BLM’s sheep want to do anything but work.

ablm 5

The “BacktoJerusalem.com” website adds, ‘“We are trained Marxists,’ Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors said, during an interview with Real News Network, further adding to the parallels between her movement and the rise of Mao Zedong’s Marxist movement in China.”

“Marxism is important for Christians to understand, because it is an ideology that pushes atheism and persecutes Christians. The Chinese believers understand this better than most, because they are still suffering under the banner of Marxism. Back to Jerusalem has written several books that talk extensively about the rise of Marxism in China and how the enemy used it to attack the church in one of the most systematically brutal ways ever seen.”

“One primary theme found in these books is this: once Marxism is adopted by a country, Christians die – in large numbers.”

“Karl Marx said, ‘religion is the opium of the people,’ and taught that his fight for oppressed people and religion were incompatible.”

“History has shown that more Christians have died from Communist Marxism than any other single ideology in the history of man. Marxism has been tried on nearly every continent, in different nations, by different cultures, but there has never been a nation on earth that has adopted Marxist teaching and not systematically killed Christians. Not one. Ever.”

“From the gulags in Russia, to the death camps in North Korea, to Red Terror in Ethiopia, to the Killing fields of Cambodia, to Cultural Revolution in China – Marxism has been one of the most brutal Christian killing machines in history.”

“Researcher, Antonio Socci, claims the untold story of the 20th century is the murder of 45 million Christians, mostly at the hands of Marxism and that massacres still continue to this day.”

And this is what “Black Lives Matter” espouses?

I can assure you that none of the fools making donations to this group, or those professing their allegiance to BLM in the name of racial injustice, have any idea about the real goals of this organization.

“Anyone associated with the history and rise of Mao Zedong can see the similarities between the two movements:”

Mao was a Marxist

Mao was an atheist

Mao used minority abuses to fuel his cause

Mao appealed to the youth

Mao inspired student and union protests

Mao used violence and fear to accomplish his goals

Mao destroyed statues and history books in an effort to erase history

Mao desired to destroy the government system to replace it with a Marxist structure

“The similarities should not cause fear or hate, but rather an awareness.”

Uh, I don’t know about that.  Some fear and hatred for this group would not exactly be a bad thing.

“[Most] Christians are unaware of the Marxist ideology of Black Lives Matter and their removal of faith-based solutions to racism. They are unaware of the war that Black Lives Matter has made against the traditional families with fathers. They are unaware of the militant LGBTQ agenda that they espouse. They are also unaware of the cop-killing communist matriarch Assata Shakur, whom the three female founders aspire to be like.”

The real question is, “Where is the mainstream media on this?”

The fake news, liberal propaganda, mainstream media obviously doesn’t want the American people to become aware of what is REALLY going on here.

The TRUTH is, the mainstream media and the democrats are totally complicit with Black Lives Matter and their goals.

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.

Oh, Howard, you’re such a tool…, and such a fool!

Yes, Howard, you’re such a confused, racist, ignorant, liberal tool.

At least that’s what my anonymous sources tell me!

Hey…, if it works for The Washington Post, CNN, etc….

Yes, I’ve heard Howard Stern, and the cast of aging turds on his show, return to berating people who choose to not wear masks.

amask 4

They label these people as “irresponsible,” “dangerous,” and even as potential murderers!

amask 9

Just because they balk against the foolishness of wearing a mask 24/7.

amask 10

It’s mind-numbing how Howard and his sidekicks can say nothing about how dangerous rioters and looters are, and have been, in the City of New York and around the country, but God forbid some poor person chooses to not wear a stupid mask!

amask 12

The shame!

People can riot, loot, burn, vandalize, attack police officers and others without being arrested…, but don’t you dare refuse to wear a mask…, unless you’re a protester that is!

But it’s not just being a protester…, you have to be the right kind of protester, in their eyes.

Hey, I know!

Maybe what these people who don’t want to wear masks should do is, get some of their friends together, show up and protest the store, loot it, take what they want, and then burn it down!

That would be acceptable behavior in the eyes of these liberal zealots.

Anyway…, let’s get back to Howard.

I know Howard has been hiding in his home, deathly afraid of the coronavirus, for over three months.

And now, he finally has a valid reason to go into hiding!

According to Mike Fleming Jr. for “Deadline.com,” “The war of words between Howard Stern and his former friend (I believe using the word ‘friend’ is stretching it a bit), President Donald Trump, and the president’s son Donald Jr. escalated last weekend when Junior retweeted a conservative missive that the SiriusXM broadcaster appeared in blackface and used the N-word multiple times in a pay-per-view New Year’s Eve special — in 1993.”

amask 1

“Trump Jr. has been jabbing at Stern since the radio host has spoken critically of his father’s slow response to the pandemic [that’s Howard’s opinion], and his polarizing comments in the wake of the George Floyd murder and subsequent protests [that’s also in Howard’s opinion]. Stern in turn has jabbed back.  Then, Trump Jr. retweeted the clip of the performance.”

amask 6

What “polarizing comments?”

All of the comments I’ve heard from The President have been completely appropriate.  President Trump called the Floyd video “hard to watch” and “a disgrace.”  He has called for equal justice under the law and fair treatment by the police.  He also said, “We can’t let what happened to George Floyd happen again.”

amask 13

“Polarizing?”

I guess what Mr. Fleming must be referring to as “polarizing” would be President Trump’s desire to avoid these cities from being vandalized, looted and burned.

“Polarizing,” only, I guess, in the sense that you have Pro-America people on one side and Anti-America people on the other.

“The clip [of Howard Stern using the “N” word] was first posted by filmmaker Tariq Nasheed, and it was interspersed with Stern’s recent appearance on ‘The View,’ where he claimed during the appearance that he’d never used the racial slur.”

amask 2

amask 3

You have obviously intentionally “misremembered” this , Howard.

“In the clip, Stern was reportedly playing the part of Ted Danson, with Sherman Hemsley playing Whoopi Goldberg, Danson’s girlfriend at the time. It was picked up by the unabashedly pro-Trump newspaper New York Post.”

Now, honestly…, do we ever hear the New York Times or The Washington Post defined as “unabashedly” anti-Trump newspapers?

No.

Just sayin’.

“Stern addressed the retroactive controversy this morning on his show. He expressed some regret for lampooning Goldberg and Danson’s decision to dress in blackface for a Friar’s Club roast, but said that he has evolved. He charged that the Trumps have not.”

amask 5

Oh, so, Howard has “evolved,” and along with his evolution he has gained the wisdom to pass judgement on others as to their level of racial evolution.

Does anybody else the level of this pompous ass’ hypocrisy?

Howard goes on to say, ‘“Over the years, I did change the show. A lot of people who did like that humor, where I was completely pulling my pants off, those people are pissed off at me now. They think I’m a sellout and I’m not doing a good show anymore.’”

And those people would be right.

You have become a liberal “sellout,” and your show really isn’t very good anymore…, at least the shows you bother to actually be there a couple times a week.

amask 7

‘“Attacking me during the coronavirus and Black Lives Matter is absolutely f***ing crazy, concentrating on me.’”

I’m sure you think it is, Howard.

You know what they say about people who live in glass houses, don’t you?

‘“You want to concentrate on me and bully me, and expose me, with all the TV shows I’ve done?”

Oh, so, just because you’ve done a lot of shows, that somehow makes any criticism of you unjustified?

I’ve heard you freely throw around words like “racist and “liar” where The President is concerned.

Well…, right back at ya big guy!

How fast do you think all of your “Hollywood friends” are running away from you at the moment?

We should probably use the term “ran away” at this point, because it’s already a done deal.

‘“I paid a fortune to fix me, it ain’t easy,’ Stern continued.”

Some would even suggest that you may need to spend a little more money in this area.

amask 8

“Said longtime radio partner Robin Quivers: ‘I have long been a proponent of free speech…’”

“Free” meaning speech that you agree with, obviously.

Yes…, we all wish we could be as enlightened as you and Howard, Ms. Quivers.

Please let me remind you that your idea of “entertainment” includes watching one of your staff Neanderthals sip wine through his a$$hole!

You and your crew also likes listening to “Fartman” expel gas on your show, while you joke about the Columbine students after their nightmare, and refer to one of your usual contacts as Gary “the retard.”

And you perceive yourselves as being enlightened and the rest of us as clueless hillbillies?

Just sayin’.

I’m offended, he’s offended, she’s offended, we’re offended, wouldn’t you like to be offended too?

So, how far does the right to be offended go?

aoffended 9

I really don’t think there is a limit to our right to be offended by anyone or anything.

Where I have a problem with these offended individuals, or groups, is when they force their actions of recourse on the rest of us…, which may in turn result in infringements of my rights.

aoffended 4

aoffended 14

For example:

Infringing on the rights of others to pacify their feelings of “offendedness” is not a right.

Destroying public and private property which somehow offends them is not a right.

Defacing, wrecking, burning, and robbing public and private property as a response to their feelings of “offendedness” is not a right.

None of these things are a right, nor are any of them even legal.

If we all decided to take physical action against people and things we were offended by, or had a problem with, what would our country look like?  What would we be left with?

Let’s take a look at an “offendedless America!”

In no particular order, we have people who are offended by:

Meat eaters.

Gay people.

aoffended 10

Straight people.

Conservatives.

Liberals.

The Police.

White people.

Black people.

Words.

Merry-Christmas-Memes - Fresh Milk with regard to Merry Christmas Memes

aoffended 5

Thoughts.

aoffended 16

Free enterprise/capitalism.

Socialism.

Communism.

Freedom of speech.

aoffended 6

Guns.

Our flag.

Historical flags.

Cultural history.

Racial history.

History in general.

aoffended 20

Religion.

Our laws.

Music.

aoffended 13

Winners.

Irresponsibility.

Unaccountability.

aoffended 18

Our founding fathers.

And this list only scratches the surface as to what and who people get offended by.

aoffended 2

So, what would our country look like if we got rid of everything and everybody people were offended by?

I don’t think there would be hardly anybody left.

America would look just like it did before the Europeans discovered it and settled it.

I have heard humanity described as a virus…, a deadly virus.

Wherever civilization goes, it brings war, death, and confusion with it.

Don’t get me wrong…, I believe civilization is a good thing…, but it is corrupted and ruined far too easily.

We have just been fortunate enough to have lived through a relative high point of civilization in these United States.

But that civilization is most definitely coming under a more concentrated attack as of late.

aoffended 19

Civilized people still need to learn how to meet and defeat those uncivilized people who just want to ruin our civilization.

These people who just want to ruin everything.

I do have to say we’re getting better at meeting these liberal freedom wreckers head-on, but we still play way too nice.

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.

Defund your police!  I dare you!

According to Tyler Olson of Fox News, “In the wake of George Floyd’s death, calls to ‘defund the police’ have in a matter of days escalated from a fringe campaign to a celebrity-backed cause to part of the municipal mainstream — and now appear primed to spur official action, to varying degrees, in cities across the country.”

adare 6

These cities would include Minneapolis, San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Baltimore, and Philadelphia, amongst others.

You know…, your list of typical, clueless, liberal hotbed cities.

As I don’t live in these circus towns, I don’t really care what they do…, but I must admit, that watching the news every night after they got rid of their police departments would definitely be entertaining, to say the least!

Like I said…, I dare all of you liberal cities to get rid of your police forces…, I DARE YOU!

I DOUBLE DOG DARE YOU!

adare 1

“The stunning momentum behind the movement has fueled Republican criticism that ‘radical’ ideas are being readily embraced by Democrats.”

“On the ground, however, there is a visible conflict between Democrats on board with ‘defund’ and those who want to seek reforms without actually dismantling police departments. This split, and the sudden power that activists wield over local officials on the issue, was perhaps best illustrated over the weekend when Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey faced a crowd of protesters asking him whether he would support abolishing the city’s police department.”

adare 3

“Frey, while promising reform to the city’s ‘systemically racist’ policing system and saying ‘the police union needs to be put in its place,’ was asked a ‘yes or no’ question by a protester [one of the organizers, I believe] if he would ‘commit to defunding the Minneapolis Police Department.’”

Ah, the dreaded “yes or no” question!

A good politician knows to disregard that stipulation!

‘“We don’t want no more police,’ the woman questioning him continued. ‘Is that clear? We don’t want people with guns toting around in our communities, shooting us down.’”

Oh, really?

This woman apparently isn’t aware that African-Americans are 4-5 times more likely to be killed by another African-American than a white person, and close to 300 times more likely to be killed by another African-American as opposed to being killed by a police officer.

Do they plan on banning their own black men, in general, as well?

Just sayin’.

Typical misinformed liberal, or doesn’t care to be informed liberal, or is informed but is just pushing the radical left’s narrative without any real concern for the people of the community.

I vote for the latter.

‘“I do not support the abolition’ of the police department, Frey said.”

Wow!  Even though I’m not a fan, this guy is not as stupid as I thought, and he definitely has some balls to respond honestly in the middle of a huge, antagonistic, crowd.

I do give credit where credit is due!

“He was immediately shouted down. ‘Get the f— out of here,’ the protester responded as others loudly booed [and threw things at] Frey, who later reiterated his commitment to reforming the department, despite saying he would not dismantle it entirely.”

adare 4

“Despite Frey’s reluctance to go along, Minneapolis’ left-leaning City Council members on Sunday announced a veto-proof push to disband the Minneapolis police.”

“Supporters of the move told Fox News, ‘We recognize that we don’t have all the answers about what a police-free future looks like, but our community does. We’re committing to engaging with every willing community member in the city of Minneapolis over the next year to identify what safety looks like for you.’”

“The calls for dismantling the city police are perhaps the loudest from City Council member Jeremiah Ellison, the son of state Attorney General Keith Ellison. The younger Ellison [a Muslim and a proponent of implementing Sharia Law] has said that after taking apart the police department, ‘we’re not simply gonna glue it back together. We are going to dramatically rethink how we approach public safety and emergency response. It’s really past due.’”

adare 5

I can’t wait to see what your idea of public safety and emergency response looks like…, and I imagine the criminals in Minneapolis can’t wait either!

Brian Flood of Fox News reports that, “Minneapolis City Council president Lisa Bender went viral on Monday morning when she told CNN that calling the police when your home is broken into ‘comes from a place of privilege,’ before being lampooned by everyone from Sen. Ted Cruz to Donald Trump Jr.”

adare 2

“Bender brought some attention to CNN’s low-rated morning show ‘New Day’ [ouch!] when she joined Alisyn Camerota to discuss her goal of dismantling the Minneapolis police department in the wake of George Floyd’s tragic death while in police custody.”

“Bender said the police are not keeping everyone safe, and the first step of fixing the problem is to admit the current system isn’t working. Bender has said she can imagine a future without police, and has urged money to be redirected from a ‘militarized police force’ to things she feels would greater benefit the community.”

‘“Do you understand that the word dismantle, or police-free, also makes some people nervous, for instance, what if, in the middle of the night, my home is broken into,’ Camerota asked. ‘Who do I call?’”

“BENDER: ‘Yes, I hear that loud and clear from a lot of my neighbors. And I know — and myself, too, and I know that that comes from a place of privilege.  For those of us for whom the system is working, I think we need to step back and imagine what it would feel like to already live in that reality where calling the police may mean more harm is done.’”

“BENDER: ‘We’ve done an analysis of all the reasons people call 911, and I’ve looked at ways we can shift the response away from armed police officers into a more appropriate response for mental health calls, for some domestic violence calls, for health-related issues.’”

Obviously, Ms. Bender doesn’t even realize she’s legislating herself right out of a job!

If no one lives or works in Minneapolis anymore, there won’t be a need for a Common Council either.
