“Cultural appropriation!” Cried the cultural appropriator! 

Just as liberal African-Americans are seemingly immune from being racists, it is only the African-American culture that can be appropriated apparently.

Remember…, conservative African-Americans aren’t welcome in the liberal or “liberal Black” club though.

First, let’s see what cultural appropriation is defined as.

Cultural appropriation, at times also phrased cultural misappropriation, “is the adoption of elements of one culture by members of another culture.”

Your first impression might be, “so what?” or “that’s nice.”

I mean, haven’t we heard it said that, “imitation is the sincerest form of flattery?”

Well, I guess we need to add a caveat to that saying now, which would be, “imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, unless you’re a liberal or a liberal African-American.”

Here are some samples of liberal headlines addressing this “terrible” hijacking of the Black culture:

What is cultural appropriation and why is it offensive? – “The Week” website from the United Kingdom.

Why Cultural Appropriation Is Wrong – The “ThoughtCo” website.

Why cultural appropriation isn’t cool – reachout.com website.

… and,

A Point of View: Understanding the Harmful Impact of Cultural Appropriation – by Luiza Dreasher on the “Inclusion Solution” website who asks, “When Non-Black Minorities Adopt Black Style, Is It Still Appropriation?” …and answers, “The answer is simple: Absolutely.”

Bianca Lambert for the HuffPost (Huffington Post) website says, “We’ve seen a wealth of celebrities including Miley Cyrus and the Kardashians appropriating Black culture, plus countless fashion designers sending white models down their runways wearing ‘locs,’ braids and baby hairs. But what happens when we start to talk about Black appropriation among other minority communities?”

“Anyone can appropriate Black culture, including non-Black minorities, according to Keisha Brown, an associate professor of history at Tennessee State University.”

You know…, in America, Ms. Lambert and Ms. Brown, if you don’t patent something or copyright something you don’t own whatever that is and you don’t have the right to tell anyone else they can’t use it or copy it.

Just sayin’.

acapp 10

‘“So many facets of Black culture, both historically and contemporaneously, have become synonymous with mainstream American culture,’ Brown told HuffPost. ‘A related issue at hand is the separation of Black culture from the peoples and history that created it. People embrace the hip or popular elements of Black culture, but not Black Americans.’”

I guess it depends on what you consider “mainstream” American culture now doesn’t it, Ms. Brown?  And that’s a two-way street by the way.

“It’s all too common for designers to walk white models down the runway in cornrows.”

How dare they?!

If you want to start crying about “cultural appropriation…,” then let’s cry about ALL “cultural appropriation.”

acapp 11

You hardly see any Black actresses or singers with “natural” hair anymore.

acapp 19

Let’s take a look at their cultural appropriation of “white girl’s hair.”

‘“Cultural appropriation is an issue because of the history of systematic destruction and exploitation of Black culture,’ Day said [Lindsey Day, the co-founder and editor-in-chief of CRWN Magazine]. ‘America turned free people into “niggers,” and to everyone’s surprise, we created new forms of beautiful expression out of that pain. Those cultural expressions have become America’s greatest cultural exports and engines to build white wealth.’”

acapp 18

Didn’t anyone ever let you know that “life ain’t fair?”

Well, just so you know, it isn’t.

“Nicole C. Jackson, a psychotherapist who specializes in cultural and systemic oppression among emerging adults, works with many young African-American women who struggle with embracing their beauty and identity.”

‘“We often find ourselves in the role of educating everyone, from our children’s teachers, doctors and co-workers about what it means to be us,’ Jackson said. ‘While our voices are essential to the conversation, it is not our responsibility alone to educate others about their injustice and appropriation.’”

Do you include in “your education” for us, about you, that you all feel that you are the only ones who experience injustice?

Do you include in “your education” for us, about you, that you all feel that you are the only ones who experience cultural appropriation?

acapp 17

Do you include in “your education” for us, about you, that you all feel that you are the only ones worthy of any consideration?

Do you include in “your education” for us, about you, that you all are some of the ones keeping racism and culturalism alive and well in our society?

Just sayin’.

“Democrats have brainwashed Black Americans!” – Kanye West (Musician/Rapper)

You got that right, Kanye.

“Poor people have been voting democrat for 50 years…, and they’re still poor.” – Charles Barkley (Retired NBA basketball player and now basketball TV analyst)

You got that right, Charles.

Sam Dorman of Fox News reports that, “Kanye West calls out liberals for ‘bullying’ Trump supporters [and] the media’s liberal agenda.”

I applaud Kanye West for not being afraid to state the obvious and brandish the truth.

akanye 5

Are Trump supporters not being bullied in many cases?

Does the mainstream media not have a liberal agenda?

Well there you go.

“Rapper Kanye West [also] blasted Democrats on Friday, claiming the party was effectively forcing black Americans to abort their children.”

‘“Democrats had us voting for Democrats with food stamps for years, bro. … Guns in the 80s, taking the fathers out the home, Plan B, lowering our votes, making us abort our children,’ he said during an interview published on Friday.”

“In the same interview, with radio host Big Boy, West said black Americans are ‘brainwashed.’ ‘We’re brainwashed out here, bro. Come on, man. This is a free man talking,’ he said.”

Democrats have obviously taken Black Americans for granted for a very long time.

The unwavering 90%+ support of the democrats by Black Americans is definitely unwarranted.

Again…, like Charles Barkley said, “Poor people have been voting democrat for 50 years…, and they’re still poor.”

akanye 3

akanye 1

But the hold the democrats have had on Blacks is starting to show a few cracks here and there.

akanye 6

During the 2016 presidential election, President Trump asked Black Americans, “What do you have to lose by taking a chance on me?”

By my estimation, the only thing they have to lose is their front row seats for when their democrat masters throw their crumbs out to all of the black sheep living on their plantation!

akanye 10

“His comments echoed those of pro-life activists like Dr. Alveda King, the niece of Martin Luther King, Jr.  In June, King blasted Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., for suggesting that abortion was a civil rights issue.”

akanye 4

akanye 9

‘“I need for her to understand that abortion is a civil wrong,’ King told ‘Fox & Friends.’ ‘And of course, if you’re pro-life, you can’t be racist because you’re defending life for the most defenseless population on the planet — the little babies in the womb,’ King said at the time.”

“The pro-life movement has long pointed out the disparity between black and white abortion rates in the U.S.”

“The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported in 2018 that for 2015, ‘abortion rates and ratios remained 1.5 and 1.3 times higher for Hispanic compared with non-Hispanic white women and 3.6 and 3.5 times higher for non-Hispanic black compared with non-Hispanic white women.”

“At one point during the interview, West also claimed that it was racist for people to tell him he couldn’t support Trump. ‘The most racist thing a person can tell me is that I’m supposed to choose something based on my race,’ he said.”

Kanye’s absolutely right here.  It’s racist and un-American.

Why are Whites, Hispanics and Asians “allowed” to think for themselves, while Blacks are somehow expected to conform to some predetermined way of thinking or be shunned and labeled Uncle Toms and the like?

“West drew some criticism last year after he openly embraced [President] Trump and was seen sport[ing] a ‘Make America Great Again’ hat.”

akanye 2

Like Kanye said, “Come on, man. This is a free man talking.”

America is the land of the free, and we’re still allowed to believe what we want, think what we want and say what we want, even though the democrats are making their best effort to change all of that.

The thought police are out there and ready to go on active duty if, God forbid, we put the democrats in a position to let them loose.

“Try not to speak, Michelle,” said the people with a brain.

According to Dom Calicchio of Fox News, “Michelle Obama says whites ‘still running’ away from minorities, immigrants.”

“White Americans are ‘still running’ elsewhere when minorities and immigrants move into their communities, Michelle Obama observed Tuesday.”

“The former first lady made the remarks at the Obama Foundation Summit, held at the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago.”

Excuse me, but did you have to wear a bulletproof suit to and from the institute, Michelle?

I mean with all of the gun violence in your home city of Chicago there, and all.

“In a sit-down interview with journalist Isabel Wilkerson, in which Obama was accompanied by her brother, Craig Robinson, an executive with the NBA’s New York Knicks, Obama described when she first became conscious of what’s been called ‘white flight.’”

‘“We were doing everything we were supposed to do – and better,’ Obama said of her family, recalling when they got a new address on Chicago’s South Side. ‘But when we moved in, white families moved out.’”

A bit of an exaggeration, I’m sure.

And “doing everything we were supposed to do” according to who?

What are you talking about?

‘“I want to remind white folks that y’all were running from us,’ she continued, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. ‘And you’re still running.’”

Uh…, not racist at all are we, Michelle?

amich 3

So all 230 million of us “whiteys” all act the same and can be lumped into one group?

“Discrimination took another form as she advanced in her academic career, said the 55-year-old Obama, a best-selling author with degrees from Princeton and Harvard, adding she did her best to move forward and achieve despite the mistreatment.”

‘“As people doubted us coming through — ‘Are you Princeton material? Can you really make the grade? Can you cut it? — What do you do in those instances?’ Obama asked, according to The Hill. ‘All you can do is put your head down and do the work and let the work, your truth, speak for itself.’”

amich 4

Uh…, hello, Michelle.  I’m getting the impression that you think white people receive some kind of automatic diploma from Princeton or Harvard.  That white people don’t have doubts about whether they’re good enough, and that they don’t have to work hard to achieve anything.

Seriously?

You can’t possibly be that stupid, Michelle, can you?

Is this what a degree from Princeton and Harvard gets you?

“[Michelle] Obama added that she is mystified by the concept of discrimination.”

You might be mystified by the “concept of discrimination,” Michelle, but your execution of discrimination seems just fine.

‘“I can’t make people not afraid of black people,’ she said, according to The Hill. ‘I don’t know what’s going on.  I can’t explain what’s happening in your head.’”

Ok…, again, Michelle…, not all Black people are created equally.

White people, Hispanic people and Asian people are not afraid of “Black” people.

They’re afraid of any color person who walks around with a gun shooting other people.

They’re afraid of any color person who walks around acting uncivilized.

They’re afraid of any color person who walks around in gangs.

They’re afraid of any color person who walks around dealing deadly drugs to their children.

They’re afraid of any color person who walks around with no common courtesy for other people.

Are there some white people out there who are racist and just don’t like Black people because they’re black?

Yes.

Just like there are some Black people out there who are racist and just don’t like white people because they’re white.

Yes.

People like you, Michelle.

Well, these words are coming out of your mouth, aren’t they, Michelle?

amich 1

amich 2

People like that are out there, but you just can’t lump all white people together, just like you can’t lump all Black people together.

‘“But maybe if I show up every day as a human, a good human, doing wonderful things, loving my family, loving our kids, taking care of things that I care about — maybe, just maybe that work will pick away at the scabs of our discrimination.  Maybe that will slowly unravel it.’”

All I can say is, “Speak for yourself, Michelle…, just speak for yourself.”

The Sierra Club says climate change deniers are more likely to be racists!  Well, there’s killing two birds with one stone!

According to Heather Smith for SIERRA, The national magazine of the Sierra Club, “People who don’t believe that climate change is real are more likely to be old, more likely to be Republican, and more likely to be white.”

So you’re saying the smartest group among us don’t necessarily believe in all of this climate change mumbo jumbo?

Makes sense to me so far.

“They [the old, white, conservatives] are also more likely to have racist beliefs, according to a recent study published in the journal ‘Environmental Politics.’”

cons 8

“Environmental Politics.”  Now there’s a liberal rag of a magazine if ever I heard of one!

I take it they’re just assuming the racist part because we’re talking about white conservatives here.

I doubt they asked people in the study if they were racists or not.

Ms. Smith goes on to say, “This correlation is a relatively recent phenomenon—one that occurred in the wake of Barack Obama’s election in 2008.”

cons 7

Oh, okay…, now I’m starting to get where this is going.

“The paper hypothesizes that, however moderate his actions, the mere existence of our first African American president dropping climate change into the State of the Union Address and joining the Paris climate accord correlates with a significant number of white Americans deciding that they were done believing in climate change.”

“This correlation has also been documented with regard to health-care reform—after the Obama administration made it a priority, a subset of white Americans who had supported the issue during the Clinton administration suddenly switched their position.”

This last claim is just a plain fabrication.  Not many people supported government run health care at all during the Clinton years.  That’s why they failed to implement it.  ObamaCare was actually signed into law.  I don’t think their argument stands up here.

Their racist claims regarding President Obama and climate change are way off base as well.

cons 6

cons 4

When are these liberals going to understand that conservatives didn’t care about the color of Obama’s skin…, it was HIS policies, and HIS racism that turned conservatives off.

“Political messaging with racist over- and undertones has been deployed relentlessly by some politicians because appealing to prejudice and paranoia really does motivate racist, paranoid people to show up and vote.”

Now there something we can all agree on!

Except they’re referring to Republicans and I’m thinking about the Democrats!

cons 5

These crazy “studies” are about as valuable as their polling numbers!

But accuracy was never their goal in the first place.

It was the liberal messaging that was the most important thing.  It was only a means to an end.  Some hogwash to back up a failed narrative.

WINNING!

“I’m a racist, he’s a racist, she’s a racist, we’re a racist, wouldn’t you like to be a racist too?!

According to Dom Calicchio of Fox News, “Trump policies, racism, may cause some black women’s weight problems, a Rutgers professor says.”

blacks 1

“Brittney Cooper a Rutgers University professor believes President Trump’s policies and racism is causing black women’s weight problems.”

blacks 13

Okay…, all of these racism claims and Trump blaming are getting pretty ridiculous now!

blacks 2

Are President Trump’s racist policies causing me to stuff my face in order to make myself feel better?

“That’s the sort of question some black women may be asking themselves, a Rutgers University professor suggested during a recent appearance on the Oprah Winfrey Network.”

“Although, more accurately, the problem may be the stress and anxiety caused by the policies rather than the policies themselves, Brittney Cooper, who teaches gender studies at the New Jersey-based university, said on a recent episode of ‘Black Women OWN the Conversation.’”

blacks 3

It’s not the policies, stupid…, it’s the policies!

President Trump has not even been in office for three years.

I would be willing to bet that almost all of these women haven’t changed much since the “glorious” Obama years.

Just sayin’.

“Research shows black women lose weight more slowly than white women, and the Trump presidency may be exacerbating the situation, Cooper said on the program, according to CampusReform.org.”

This just keeps getting “stupider” by the minute!

‘“We are living in the Trump era,’ she said, ‘and look, those policies kill our people. You can’t get access to good health care, good insurance.’”

blacks 9

blacks 8

What?!

Excuse me?

President Trump’s policies are “killing your people?!”

blacks 14

Actually, millions of minorities have been lifted out of poverty.

Millions of minorities have been lifted off of food stamps.

Millions of minorities are finding jobs and getting better jobs and higher pay.

People have at least the same access to health care and insurance as they did under Barack Obama, and even better in most cases.

President Trump has implemented many new policies aimed at improving the economic situations of our inner-cities.

If you were being honest, you would have to say that minorities are definitely winning with President Trump.

According to the GOP website:

“President Trump has fostered a roaring economy for all Americans, driving down unemployment rates for minority groups, with African American, Asian, and Hispanic unemployment hitting record lows in recent months.”

“Under President Obama, African American unemployment was on average 5.2 percent higher than the general population, and Hispanic unemployment averaged 1.9 percent higher.”

“Under President Trump, not only has minority unemployment plummeted, but the unemployment gap has narrowed to 3 percent for African Americans, and 0.8 percent for Hispanics.”

The “Opportunity Zones” incentive is a new community investment tool, established by President Trump, in the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 to encourage long-term investments in low-income urban and rural communities nationwide. Opportunity Zones provide a tax incentive for investors to re-invest their unrealized capital gains into dedicated “Opportunity Funds.”

“President Trump has focused on providing jobs training programs that help Americans who can’t afford a college education earn money while they learn.”

“In an effort to promote the growth of Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), President Trump has increased funding for various HBCU programs.”

“Under President Trump, technical education and vocational studies, programs that are heavily utilized by minorities, have received $1.2 billion in funding.”

“Under President Trump, Obamacare’s harmful and costly individual mandate has been repealed and access to Short-Term Limited-Duration plans has been expanded in order to provide more affordable healthcare plans to the American people.”

“Premiums for these plans can be up to 80 percent lower than Obamacare healthcare plans.”

“President Trump has been an avid advocate of prison reform, supporting The First Step Act, sentencing reforms, and hosting a Prison Reform Summit where he sought input from over 100 activists, experts and policymakers. President Trump plans to address the partisan divide in Congress on improving prison conditions and better-preparing prisoners for re-entry into society.”

“The First Step Act, which would place federal prisoners closer to home, allow more home confinement for lower-level offenders, and expand prison employment programs, has also been signed into law.

And these are just a few of the horrible injustices and terribly racist policies, championed by President Trump, that should keep African-American women up at night and stuffing their faces!

blacks 4

‘“I hate when people talk about black women being obese,’ Cooper continued. ‘I hate it because it becomes a way to blame us for a set of conditions that we didn’t create.’”

We feel for you and your sisters Ms. Cooper.  I’ve heard reports that the day after President Trump’s inauguration day, hordes of republican staffers invaded our inner-cities, literally stuffing food down the throats of African-American women.

Damn those whiteys for building all of those KFC’s, Pizza Huts, Popeye’s, McDonald’s and Taco Bells!

“She added: ‘It’s literally that the racism that you’re experiencing and the struggle to make ends meet actually means the diet don’t work for you the same.’”

I’ve heard it said that we create our own hell.

“We create our own hell, it is the sum of all our decisions – we are not sentenced, we condemn ourselves.” ― Gabrielle Estres

If we choose to see everything through a pair of racist glasses, that is exactly what we are going to see.

“In a separate interview, Cooper told CampusReform.org she was citing 1990s information from Dr. Arline Geronimus, a public health research professor at the University of Michigan.”

“Geronimus ‘argues pretty convincingly that black women have physiological stress responses to racial stimuli and this affects our long-term health,’ Cooper said.”

I don’t think many people would argue that stress in general can have a definite affect our health.

“I was citing this body of work and the president’s status as a racially polarizing figure that contributes to issues of racial stress for people of color.”

I would contend it is the sum of our democrat “friends” and the liberal propaganda main stream media who are fraudulently creating racial stress in our country at President Trump’s expense.

Ask a liberal to find a direct quote of President Trump’s or a real example of one of his policies that can be identified as being racist.

They won’t be able to do it…, because there aren’t any!

They have been told, and are continually being told there are, and they are taking these libelous accusations as the truth…, which they are not.

“Racism” is as “Racism” does.

By definition, racism is prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based solely on their race.

If we’re honest, we have to admit that we see racists in action all day every day…, but President Trump isn’t one of them!

divide 4

Liberal commentators, democrat politicians and liberal propagandist “journalists” tend to view everything through a racial prism.

divide 1

They see racism in EVERYTHING, and they promote racism in all they do, and then they have no problem at all calling everyone but themselves a racist.

divide 12

They are predisposed to a racist perspective.

It’s the unapologetic liberal agenda.

“Do as I say, not as I do.”

“Think as I think, or anything is fair game against you.”

“White people can only be critical of other white people.”

“People of color can only be criticized by other people of color, and only liberal people of color at that.”

According to Heather Mac Donald of The Wall Street Journal, “President Trump’s political opponents have accused him of sowing ‘division’ with his ‘racist language.’ Mr. Trump ‘exploits race,’ ‘uses race for his gain,’ is engaged in a ‘racially divisive reprise’ of his 2016 campaign, stokes ‘racial resentments,’ and puts ‘race at the fore,’ the New York Times has reported over the past several months.”

“Yet Mr. Trump rarely uses racial categories in his speech or his tweets.”

It’s all a liberal propagandist fairy tale.

divide 9

Ask them to give you examples and direct quotes of President Trump’s terribly racist remarks and they will quickly dodge, deflect and try to derail the entire conversation.

Ms. Mac Donald reminds us that, “It is the media and Democratic leaders who routinely characterize individuals and groups by race and issue race-based denunciations of large parts of the American polity [society].”

divide 10

“Some examples: ‘As race dominates the political conversation, 10 white Democratic candidates will take the stage’ (the Washington Post); Mr. Trump’s rally audiences are ‘overwhelmingly white’ (multiple sources); your son’s ‘whiteness is what protects him from not being shot’ by the police (Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand ); white candidates need to be conscious of ‘white privilege’ (South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg ); ‘white supremacy manifests itself’ in the criminal-justice, immigration and health-care systems ( Sen. Cory Booker ); ‘ Michael Brown was murdered by a white police officer in Ferguson, Missouri’ ( Sen. Elizabeth Warren ); whiteness is ‘the very core’ of Mr. Trump’s power, whereas his ‘predecessors made their way to high office through the passive power of whiteness’ (Ta-Nehisi Coates in The Atlantic).”

divide 11

divide 8

“Liberal opinion deems such rhetoric fair comment, even obvious truth, not ‘racially divisive.’”

In the liberal mind, it’s okay to be racially divisive if you’re attacking anyone who’s conservative.

White conservatives are labeled “white supremacists,” Black conservatives are labeled “Uncle Toms,” and Latinos, Asians and anyone else are just plain ignored.

divide 6

These are the standard operating procedures for the liberals, democrats, socialists and fascists of today.

Can we talk…, about racism?

Liberals are quick to accuse others of being “a racist…,” and we hear them making their accusations on almost a daily basis now.

race13

But there are a lot of aspects to the term “racist.”

What are they, and what are we really talking about here?

By definition, “racism” is the belief in the superiority of one race over another.

“Racial discrimination” is any discrimination against others based on the color of their skin, racial or ethnic origin.

Can we agree that there definitely are “racists” in every corner of the globe?

race 14

It’s just human nature and in our subconscious mind I believe.

Our view of the world and other people is influenced by our family, where we grew-up, the culture we grew-up in, and who we grew-up with.

Let’s take the definition of “racism” and substitute the word “racism” with a few other words.

Let’s start with “culture-ism” and “culture.”

Culture-ism” is the belief in the superiority of one culture over another.

We see displays of “culture-ism” all of the time, and it doesn’t seem to be much of an issue.  We see people displaying pride in their “ethnic origin,” country of origin, or culture of origin and people don’t get all bent out of shape over it.

We see displays of “ethnic origin,” country of origin, or culture of origin pride during the Olympics.  We see Irish pride displayed on St. Patty’s Day.  We see Mexican pride displayed on Cinco de Mayo.  We see African-American pride displayed on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s Day.

Can anyone deny “Greek pride,” “Italian pride,” Japanese, Chinese, Jewish, German, Middle Eastern, Australian, English, Scandinavian, etc. pride?

Of course not.

I apologize if I left out your particular “group” of pride, but the list could go on and on.  This is just a display of my innate “racism” or “culture-ism” I guess!

Do people of these groups feel their “group” is “better” than people from other “groups?”

I’d say, yes.

And is there anything particularly wrong with that?

I’d say no.

We see examples of this in many different areas.

We have pride in the town we are from or live in.

We have pride in the state we are from or live in.

We have pride in the High School and college we attended.

We have pride in our families.

We have pride in the sports teams we support.

Are you “a dog person?”

Are you “a cat person?”

Are you a liberal or a conservative?

How much money do you have?

How much formal education do you have?

And how about our religion?!

The point is, we all believe in the superiority of one “group” over another “group” in many cases.

We discriminate against others, based on many different factors, all of the time.

race 11

race 8

If we are really honest with ourselves, we all have to acknowledge this.

For some reason skin color is treated differently, however.

Being labeled a “racist” nowadays seems to be the ultimate sin.

race 9

race 7

Skin color is as good a reason to discriminate as any of the other reasons, I guess.

Oh…, and by the way…, no one is actually “white.”

No one is actually “black.”

No one is actually “yellow.”

And no one is actually “red.”

And if our government, educational institutions, and any manner of other businesses or associations aren’t “racist” or “culture-ist…,” why do they keep asking us what race we consider ourselves to be on all manner of forms, applications and surveys?

Why?

race 6

race 10

We are all a million different varying shades of many different colors.

Did you know that African-Americans actually discriminate against each other based on the degree of their “blackness” or the degree of their “lightness?”

It’s true.

Regarding this, I guess you could label them as “colorists” or “shade-ists!”

One thing is for sure…, there are plenty of discriminatory factors to go around.

Just consider everything we’ve discussed here the next time you see a self-righteous liberal casting “racist” lightning bolts down at “whites” and conservatives mostly, from atop their race enlightened perches.

race 12

For anyone to believe they are above being discriminatory against others in any fashion, for any reason, is just foolish and disingenuous.

But I guess they’d label me as a racist for saying that.

“President Trump is NOT a racist.” – Dr. Alveda King, niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

In light of all of the garbage liberal propaganda flying around out there, characterizing President Trump as a racist and even as a white supremacist, Dr. Alveda King has come to the defense President Trump.

Jason Lemon, for NEWSWEEK, reported that “Dr. Alveda King, the niece of iconic Civil Rights activist Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., told Fox News on Tuesday that claims by Democrats, pundits and activists that President Donald Trump is a racist are inaccurate.”

“During a Tuesday morning segment of Fox & Friends, King appeared for an interview with the morning show’s co-host Steve Doocy to discuss a meeting she and other African American pastors had with Trump at the White House and to comment on The President’s recent attacks on Democrat Representative Elijah Cummings and his city, Baltimore. After Doocy played a clip of politicians and analysts criticizing The President and arguing that he is racist, [Dr.] King disagreed strongly.”

‘“All of that news is absolutely fake,’ [Dr. Alveda] King, who formerly served as a representative in Georgia’s State House, insisted.  She told Doocy that The President told her and the others in their meeting this week that ‘he cares about all Americans.’”

What does Dr. King have to gain by defending The President?

Why would she say these things if she didn’t believe they were true?

‘“You know, we all believe the same. That’s something the president has said, one race, one human race,’ Dr. King said. ‘He’s not a racist, absolutely is not,’ she continued, ‘and the programs that he has moved forward, the higher job market is helping African Americans. The criminal justice reform, helping African Americans.’”

“Trump on Saturday lashed out at Cummings, who represents Maryland’s 7th District which includes more than half of Baltimore, arguing that the representative’s city is a place where ‘No human being would want to live.’”

‘“Cumming’s district is a disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess. If he spent more time in Baltimore, maybe he could help clean up this very dangerous & filthy place,’ The President wrote.”

“Many Democratic lawmakers and commentators quickly defended Cummings and Baltimore, arguing that the president’s remarks were yet another racist attack on a black American leader and an area with a largely minority population. But King disagreed with that assessment, arguing that the president was pointing to real problems.”

Here we go again.

alveda 7

What about all of the people suffering and living in squalor in Baltimore?  Who quickly defends them?

Anytime you dare to criticize and African American leader and/or politician you’re a racist.

Are these people that weak and insecure that they can’t defend their performance and their policies before playing “the race card?”

alveda 10

Is anything they do or say beyond reproach?

So are these “Democratic lawmakers and commentators” who “quickly defended [Congressman] Cummings” saying that Cumming’s district isn’t “a disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess?”  Are they saying his district isn’t a “dangerous and filthy place?”

No…, of course not.  There is no defense for Congressman Cummings, so they just whip out their “race cards” to absolve him of all responsibility and accountability.

‘“You look at his [Cummings’] community and you see individuals suffering, you see the community suffering and families suffering,’ she said.”

“The conservative Coalition of African American Pastors, which King is a part of, met with Trump on Monday and defended the president against claims that he’s a racist. Although critics suggested the meeting was just cover for the president, King told Doocy that was not the case and that the meeting had been planned before his criticism of Cummings.”

alveda 1

“Bill Owens, the president of the coalition, praised Trump after the meeting, pointing to ‘the things he’s done for the black community, positive things for the black community.’”

The truth is, these democrat politicians really aren’t worried about helping anyone but themselves…, period.

ALL ABOARD!  All aboard the liberal “crazy train!”

Yes…, it’s all aboard the “liberal crazy train…,” again!

The liberals/democrats have lost their minds when it comes to President Trump.

crazy 8

Every time I hear their latest rounds of accusations, name calling and profanity laced “stupidness…,” I don’t think they can get much worse…, but then manage to up their “crazy ante!”

Now, regarding the Dayton and El Paso shootings we hear:

“NBC News contributor raises suspicions over Trump’s order to fly US flags half-staff until Aug. 8,” according to Lukas Mikelionis of Fox News”

“NBC News contributor Frank Figliuzzi said Tuesday that President Trump’s decision to fly American flags half-staff until Aug. 8– in response to the El Paso and Dayton mass shootings– could be seen by white supremacists as a nod to Adolf Hitler.”

What?!

“Figliuzzi, a former FBI assistant director for counterintelligence, made the claim during an MSNBC broadcast with Brian Williams. Trump issued the order on Sunday ‘as a mark of solemn respect’ for the victims of the shootings.”

‘“The President’s either getting really good advice and rejecting it, or he’s getting really bad advice,’ he [Figliuzzi] said. ‘We have to understand the adversary and the threat we’re dealing with, and if we don’t understand how they think we’ll never understand how to counter them, so it’s the little things and the language and messaging that matters.’”

‘“The president says that we will fly our flags at half-mast until August 8, that’s 8/8.  Now I’m not going to imply that he did this deliberately, but I am using it as an example of the ignorance of the adversary that’s being demonstrated by the White House,’ Figliuzzi continued. ‘The numbers 8/8 are very significant in the neo-Nazi and the white supremacy movement. Why? Because the letter “H” is the eighth letter of the alphabet, and to them, the numbers 8/8 stand for “Heil Hitler.”’”

They say that Mr. Figliuzzi, is “a former FBI assistant director for counterintelligence.”  I would have to agree that his statements are “counter-intelligent!”

Cuckoo, cuckoo!

crazy 1

Please keep in mind that President Trump said, “Our nation is overcome with shock, horror and sorrow.  We are outraged and sickened by this monstrous evil.  In one voice, our nation must condemn racism, bigotry and white supremacy.  These sinister ideologies must be defeated. Hatred has no place in America.”

How you can translate these words into a “Hitler love fest” is beyond me.

crazy 2

Next, according to Joseph A. Wulfson of Fox News, “MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace issued an apology Tuesday evening over remarks made during a panel discussion stemming from a guest’s suggestion that President Trump has been ‘talking about exterminating Latinos.’”

Again…, What?!

“On Monday, Wallace led a conversation where USA Today opinion columnist Raul Reyes slammed Trump’s remarks condemning white supremacy since he had ‘basically declared open season on Latinos’ during his entire presidency.”

‘“President Obama used the power of the presidency to try to pass comprehensive immigration reform, with the Latino community, Latino leaders, at the table. You now have a president, as you said, talking about exterminating Latinos.’”

Cuckoo, cuckoo!

crazy 1

How this “talking head” can extrapolate ANYTHING President Trump has said into him wanting to “exterminate Latinos” is pure craziness or an intentional attempt at pathetic misinformation of the highest degree.

crazy 3

“After her remarks went viral on Tuesday, the ‘Deadline: White House’ host took to Twitter to clarify that she ‘misspoke.’”

‘“I misspoke about Trump calling for an extermination of Latinos. My mistake was unintentional and I’m sorry,’ Wallace said.”

I’m sorry Ms. Wallace…, but you didn’t misspeak…, your comments WERE completely intentional…, and you are totally NOT sorry.

You are simply a liar and you’re crazy.

crazy 7

According to Sam Dorman of Fox News, ‘“Morning Joe’ host claims Trump ‘seems to want’ white nationalist terror attacks.”

“MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski Tuesday shockingly floated the idea that President Trump — despite his speech denouncing white supremacy on the previous day — actually wanted white nationalists to carry out attacks like the mass shooting that left more than 20 dead in El Paso, Texas on Saturday.”

‘“You have to ask the question, Joe, and I’ll ask you, isn’t it okay to deduce that at this point this is what he wants?’ Brzezinski asked on ‘Morning Joe.’”

Cuckoo, cuckoo!

crazy 1

‘“He is inciting hatred, inciting violence, inciting racism if he doesn’t unequivocally call it off and say, this is wrong and we stand together against this and we are doing this, this and this to help fight hate crimes.’”

‘“I mean this is a president who seems to want these things to happen. How else can this be explained?’ she asked.”

“Rather than pushing back on her claims, husband and co-host Joe Scarborough piled onto the idea that Trump was ‘inciting hatred.’ ‘As you know, he’s inciting hatred now and he’s been inciting hatred up until yesterday because he sees that as a good political strategy,’ Scarborough said.”

crazy 9

AGAIN…, please keep in mind that President Trump said, “Our nation is overcome with shock, horror and sorrow.  We are outraged and sickened by this monstrous evil.  In one voice, our nation must condemn racism, bigotry and white supremacy.  These sinister ideologies must be defeated. Hatred has no place in America.”

What are Mr. and Mrs. Brzezinski talking about?!

The only way to describe their remarks is by saying they are delusional.

They are obviously living in some strange “Trump derangement syndrome” fantasy world, and they have a show on MSNBC which broadcasts their craziness on a daily basis.

crazy 10

Then, lastly (at least for now), we have Mr. “one percent in the polls” Beto O’Rourke.

According to Joseph A. Wulfsohn of Fox News, “Over the past several days, O’Rourke has slammed the president, who he has placed blame for the massacre.  The former congressman declared that Trump is a ‘racist’ and compared his language to Nazi Germany’s Third Reich.”

Cuckoo, cuckoo!

crazy 1

‘“That is a leader reveling in the hatred and the racism of the people that he purports to serve and to lead,’ O’Rourke said Monday.”

AGAIN…, please keep in mind that President Trump said, “Our nation is overcome with shock, horror and sorrow.  We are outraged and sickened by this monstrous evil.  In one voice, our nation must condemn racism, bigotry and white supremacy.  These sinister ideologies must be defeated. Hatred has no place in America.”

It seems it doesn’t matter what The President actually says.

No matter what The President says, the democrats have this narrative they attribute to The President which highlights racism and hatred.

crazy 3

They just keep spouting this stuff with no apparent concern for the truth.

As always, the democrats’ only concern is bad-mouthing President Trump, regardless of the divisiveness or hatefulness that creates.

It’s just CRAZY!

 

“Crazy Train” – by Ozzy Osbourne

All aboard!

Hahahahaha

Aye Aye Aye Aye Aye Aye…

Crazy, but that’s how it goes

Millions of people living as foes

Maybe it’s not too late

To learn how to love and forget how to hate

Mental wounds not healing

Life’s a bitter shame

I’m going off the rails on a crazy train

I’m going off the rails on a crazy train

I’ve listened to preachers, I’ve listened to fools

I’ve watched all the dropouts who make their own rules

One person conditioned to rule and control

The media sells it and you live the role

Mental wounds still screaming

Driving me insane

I’m going off the rails on a crazy train

I’m going off the rails on a crazy train
