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.”

alveda 8

alveda 9

alveda 6

“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.’”

alveda 5

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.’”

alveda 4

“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 2

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

C’mon New York Times!  You’re letting the news get in the way of the party line propaganda!

Gerren Keith Gaynor of Fox News reports that, “New York Times headline of Trump’s remarks on mass shootings ignites backlash.”

“A New York Times headline about President Trump’s remarks on the recent mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton drew condemnation online– including some Democratic presidential candidates– and was subsequently changed late Monday.”

nyt 11

They changed their headline?

Wow!  That never happens.  That headline must have been pretty vile or grossly inaccurate.

What exactly was the headline?

“The newspaper summarized Trump’s comments, in which he denounced hate and white supremacy, with the headline “Trump Urges Unity vs. Racism” on the front page of its first edition.”

Huh?

That was the headline they were forced to change?

That headline was completely accurate and unbiased.  That was exactly what occurred.  President Trump urged for unity against racism, denouncing hate and white supremacy groups.

And therein lies the problem.

How can the democrats’ fairy tale narrative of The President being a racist be true if he is reported as being against racism and denouncing hate and white supremacy groups?

C’mon New York Times!

Get with the program!

Did you forget you’re a propaganda rag that works in concert with the democrats?!

nyt 8

It seems that in a moment of weakness you actually reported “the news” there.

Shame on you!

“A photograph of Tuesday’s first edition was tweeted out by journalist Nate Silver Monday night and was quickly slammed by critics who accused The Gray Lady of inaccurately representing Trump’s comments.”

“The Gray Lady?”

More like “Gray Lady Down!”

“Some Twitter users threatened to cancel their subscriptions and urged others to do the same.”

Really?!

Did you know that “some twitter users” can be found to be doing virtually anything?

Anyway…, I digress.

‘“I canceled my subscription,’ tweeted author and CNN contributor Joan Walsh, adding, ‘I can’t keep rewarding such awful news judgement.’”

Let’s get one thing clear…, Joan Walsh is a liar.  She didn’t cancel anything.  And by “awful news judgment” she means diverting from the “fake news,” liberal narrative.  She is associated with CNN after all.

“Prominent Democrats in Washington also took aim at the Times, including New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.”

‘“Let this front page serve as a reminder of how white supremacy is aided by – and often relies upon – the cowardice of mainstream institutions,’ the freshman congresswoman tweeted.”

What?

Please explain to me how “white supremacy is aided” by reporting that The President is calling for unity against racism and white supremacy groups?

nyt 3

These democrats are sooo confused and sooo disingenuous that it is almost beyond commenting on.

nyt 1

“Presidential candidates, many of whom blamed Trump’s rhetoric for the El Paso, Texas, shooting that left at least 22 dead, also decried the headline.”

“New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand tweeted, ‘That’s not what happened.’”

No, Kirsten…, that IS exactly what happened.

‘“Lives literally depend on you doing better, NYT. Please do,’ wrote Sen. Cory Booker.”

Thank you for your take on the matter “Spartacus!”

I believe we all can “do better…,” including you Cory.

“A photograph of the Times’ second edition of the front page hours later revealed that the headline had been changed to ‘Assailing Hate but Not Guns.’ Its website also showed a similar headline: ‘Trump Condemns Bigotry but Doesn’t Call for Major New Guns Laws.’”

nyt 6

I’m surprised these new headlines were even deemed acceptable.

There is a negative twist to them now, but there is still a bit of positivity there about The President.

“Times spokeswoman Eileen Murphy acknowledged in a statement the original headline was problematic.”

“Problematic?”

The headline was “problematic,” but it wasn’t inaccurate, huh?

‘“The original headline was flawed and was changed for all editions of the paper following the first edition,’ the statement read. ‘The headline in question never appeared online, only in the first print edition.’”

The headline was “problematic” and “flawed,” but it wasn’t inaccurate?

Gee…, that reaction to the original headline would seem to be a metaphor for the democrats and their co-conspirators, the mainstream media!

“Problematic” and “flawed.”

President Trump’s response to the shootings in El Paso and Dayton is “spot on.”

President Trump’s response to the shootings in El Paso and Dayton is “spot on,” in my opinion.

And the democrats’ reaction to his remarks are what I would have expected as well…, exploitative, hypocritical and disingenuous.

Oh…, and foul-mouthed tweets contributed by democrat presidential candidates, Cory Booker, Tim Ryan and Beto O’Rourke.

According to Brooke Singman of Fox News, “President Trump called Monday for reforms at the intersection of mental health and gun laws — including so-called ‘red flag laws’ to take guns from those deemed a public risk — in the wake of back-to-back mass shootings over the weekend that left at least 30 people dead.”

“In unequivocal terms, the president also condemned white supremacy, responding to reports that the shooter in El Paso wrote a racist manifesto.”

Is it just me, or is “the media” always quick to pursue the racism angle when a white perpetrator or a conservative is involved, but completely the opposite when a non-white perpetrator or a liberal leaning individual is involved?

The Dayton shooter appears to be a liberal whacko…, but they’re keeping that on the “down low.”

Just sayin’.

‘“In one voice, our nation must condemn racism, bigotry and white supremacy,’ President Trump said, standing beside Vice President Pence. ‘These sinister ideologies must be defeated.  Hatred has no place in America.’”

Spoken like a true racist…, right Bernie?

response 1

“Senator Bernie Sanders, asked that ‘Trump please stop the racist anti-immigrant rhetoric. Stop the hatred in this country which is creating the kind of violence we see.’”

It seems to me that it is the democrats who are promoting divisiveness between the races, cultural groups, and socioeconomic groups for their own benefit.

This statement by Bernie Sanders is just another example of it.

response 9

Then we have democrat presidential candidate, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, saying ‘“This is white nationalist terrorism.’”

‘“We need to acknowledge that this is a problem,’ Buttigieg said, claiming white nationalism has been ‘condoned at the highest levels’ in Washington.

Excuse me, Mayor Pete, but the only group in Washington that has a history of condoning white supremacy are the democrats.

My two best examples would be former Senator Robert Byrd and former Supreme Court Justice, Hugo Black.

Robert Byrd served in the Senate for 52 years, and was referred to as “her mentor” by Hillary Clinton!

response 7

response 8

response 3

According to Richard Stockton of ATI (All That’s Interesting website), “Byrd never once lost an election. Unfortunately, that last record includes the time he was unanimously elected Exalted Cyclops of the KKK chapter he founded and built into a major force.”

By 1942, “Byrd had already recruited at least 150 of West Virginia’s power elite into a Klavern (a local KKK unit) with himself at its head. In 1952, with the winds of change already blowing, Byrd claimed in an interview to have quickly become disillusioned with the KKK, and to have dropped out by 1943. Even if that account is true, it doesn’t explain why, in 1946, Byrd wrote the following to the Grand Wizard: ‘The Klan is needed today as never before, and I am anxious to see its rebirth here in West Virginia and in every state in the nation.’”

Regarding former Supreme Court Justice Hugo Black, “It was said of Black that in his youth he dressed in white robes and scared black folks, in his later years he dressed up in black robes and scared white folks.”

“Black started out as a country lawyer who defended a Klansman accused of killing a Catholic priest in what was an obvious hate crime. Soon after, Black joined the Alabama KKK.  Later, Black was elected to the Senate.”

“Black was an enthusiastic supporter of [President Franklin] Roosevelt, and in 1937, Black’s loyalty was rewarded with an appointment to the Supreme Court.”

“President Trump also tweeted about the possibility of ‘linking background check legislation to immigration reform.’ However, he said he is ‘open and ready to listen to ideas that will actually work.’”

Just remember, democrats are only interested in ideas that actually work on getting them re-elected, not ideas which would address an actual problem in our society.

shootings 1

“Among his list of proposals, Trump called for reforms to mental health laws ‘to better identify mentally disturbed individuals who may commit acts of violence,’ adding that we must ‘make sure those people not only get treatment but when necessary, involuntary confinement.’”

‘“Mental illness and hatred pulls the trigger, not the gun,’ Trump said.”

response 6

“The president also called for “cultural” changes, citing violent video games…, further, he called for policing the ‘dark recesses of the Internet ‘in a bid to catch mass murderers before they act.  We must also do a better job at identifying and acting on early warning signs,’ [President] Trump said. ‘We must stop the glorification of violence in our society. This includes the gruesome and grisly video games that are now commonplace…It is too easy for troubled youth to surround themselves with a culture that celebrates violence. We must stop or substantially reduce this and it has to begin immediately,’ he added”

“Within minutes of completing his address, 2020 Democratic presidential candidates were slamming his remarks as insufficient.”

‘“The president is weak. And wrong. White supremacy is not a mental illness, and guns are a tool that white supremacists use to fulfill their hate,’ Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., tweeted.”

White supremacy may not be a mental illness, Cory, but liberalism sure appears to be!

response 5

“The attacks have revived the national debate over how to tackle gun violence, with many Democrats demanding the Senate return from recess to address the issue. A number of Democratic lawmakers and presidential candidates have also accused the president of fueling racial tensions with his rhetoric.”

Only when you are viewing his remarks through your own political and racially focused set of lenses.

When will “Black” politicians stop hiding behind the color of their skin?

Over the weekend, President Trump tweeted out some criticisms of Rep. Elijah Cummings, who happens to be part African-American and a democrat from Maryland, who represents a district in Baltimore.

These tweets were a response to Cummings’ comments which were critical of the conditions at border processing centers. Cummings last week had questioned crowded border conditions and criticized the lack of basic humanitarian needs such as sanitation being met.

cummings 1

“Cummings sarcastically asked Kevin McAleenan, the acting head of Homeland Security, ‘You feel like you’re doing a great job, right?’ according to Sommer Brokaw and Allen Cone of UPI.  ‘What does that mean when a child is sitting in their own feces, can’t take a shower, come on man, what’s that about?  None of us would have our children in that position.  They are human beings.’”

cummings 3

What a pompous ass.  What a disingenuous, pompous ass.

Oh, oh…, I guess that makes me a racist…, because you can’t question the integrity of an African-American politician you know…, unless they happen to be conservative that is!

cummings 9

You say “None of us would have our children in that position.”  Have you taken a look around your district in the last twenty years Congressman Cummings?

cummings 13

Many children in your district live in conditions much worse that the conditions you dreamed up, regarding our border processing centers, Mr. Cummings.

Why haven’t these children, these U.S. citizens, which you represent in your district, gotten the same level of your concern as have these illegal immigrants halfway across the country?

‘“I want to concentrate on these children and I want to make sure that they are okay,’ he continued. ‘I said it before, and I’ll say it again. It’s not the deed that you do to a child. It’s the memory.’”

Oh…, such eloquent words, Mr. Cummings.  You’re such a gifted orator!  Which one of your staffers fed you that line of crap?

“He added that the Trump administration was responsible for separating thousands of migrant children, some as young as 2, from their parents.”

‘“It is the Trump administration’s own policies that are causing these problems,’ he said. ‘They all increased the number of people being held and unnecessarily detained … The damage the Trump administration has inflicted and is continuing to inflict will affect these children for the rest of their lives.’”

cummings 6

No, it’s not the Trump Administration’s own policies, Mr. Cummings.  The Trump Administration is just following the laws established by you and your friend in Congress, Mr. Cummings.

If you and your friends in Congress had done its job anytime over the last twenty years or so, these situations at our southern border would not even be an issue now.

‘“I’m talking about human beings,’ Cummings said. ‘I’m not talking about people that come from, as The President said, shitholes. These are human beings. Human beings just trying to live a better life.’”

Oh, so none of these people come from your district in Baltimore, Mr. Cummings?

Sorry, but it was just too hard to let that one slip by!

People in your district aren’t “human beings?”

People in your district aren’t “trying to live a better life?”

And it was Senator Bernie Sanders who described your district as being akin to a “third world country.”

According to David Montanaro of Fox News, “[President] Trump was heavily criticized over the weekend after he branded Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., a “brutal bully” for his treatment of Border Patrol officials at committee hearings — and described Cummings’ district as “far worse and more dangerous” than the southern border.’”

cummings 15

“Radio host Rush Limbaugh said, “President Trump is speaking the absolute truth about problems in the city of Baltimore under Democrat-led administrations.’”

‘“What he’s saying here is the absolute truth, but it’s not supposed to be said about any place where the Democrats are in charge,’ he said Monday on Fox & Friends.’”

‘“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,’ Trump tweeted, before calling for an investigation into why Baltimore received so much federal funding.”

cummings 7

Ya…, let’s open up an investigation checking into what has happened to all of those hundreds of millions of dollars earmarked for Elijah Cummings’ district in Baltimore!

From what I’ve seen, Mr. Cummings seems to be a big fan of investigations!

“Limbaugh added, ‘It’s about time somebody pushed back against the human misery caused by Democrat leadership.’”

“Cummings, the chairman of the House Oversight Committee, responded Sunday by declaring he has ‘no doubt that Trump is racist.’”

cummings 5

Really, Mr. Cummings?

Why can you be critical of him, and that’s not racist, but as soon he’s critical of you that’s considered racist?

Just sayin’.

This seems to be a typical case of someone being able to “dish it out,” but not being able to take it himself.

Remember…, you started this Mr. Cummings.

cummings 11

“Limbaugh continued by adding, ‘The Democrats get to claim they are compassionate and that they care, but they never do anything that actually improves the quality of the lives of their constituents. Their constituents are as unhappy today as they were 50 years ago.’”

The “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media” is of course co-conspirators in this “racist” charade which has been perpetrated on the American people.

Hopefully our African-American friends will increasingly wake up to this fact and run these frauds right out of town and right out of Congress!

All the Dems are Kung Fu fighting…, their tongues are fast as lightning!

What we’ve been seeing is that, apparently, a white person cannot be a “true” liberal, and that it’s okay for one liberal to drop the race card on another liberal…, if that other liberal happens to be white.

A couple of weeks ago we had Kamala Harris insinuating that Joe Biden had demonstrated racist behavior in the past…, and now we hear Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez accusing Nancy Pelosi of discriminating against and singling out some of the house representatives of color.

Interesting.

This is much better than watching “The Young and the Restless,” or “As the World Turns!”

Scott Jennings of USA Today says, “The Democratic Party is a mess.”

“If we learned anything lately it is that the Democratic Party is an absolute mess.

Fault lines are deeper than ever between the young socialists and the old establishment figures who run the place.”

Aka, “The Squad” and the “term limits poster child,” Nancy Pelosi.

Additionally, “At the first primary debate, Harris assailed Biden for opposing federally mandated busing, an extremely unpopular policy among people of all races and political parties. Debate viewers were left to believe that Harris — who emotionally attributed busing to her getting a quality education — supported the federal mandates.”

mess 12

Harris also said on the debate stage that she, “would eliminate all private insurance,” and then the next day said she, “wouldn’t.”

“The prospect of nominating an old white male for president continues to deeply divide the Democratic Party, and the Woke Folk (at least the ones not supporting Bernie Sanders) are desperate for someone — anyone — to destroy America’s elderly political patriarchy. Policy, principle, and experience are irrelevant — race, gender or sexual orientation are the only credentials required to satisfy the angry [liberal democrat] mob.”

The House speaker recently gave an interview to the New York Times in which she cast aspersions on Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and three other young Democratic women of color who criticized her for giving in on the Senate border funding bill.

Though she didn’t mention them by name, Pelosi was referring to Reps. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts, in addition to Ocasio-Cortez. Otherwise known as “The Squad,” or “AOC plus three.”

‘“All these people have their public whatever and their Twitter world,’ Pelosi said. ‘But they didn’t have any following. They’re four people, and that’s how many votes they got.’”

“Insulting AOC’s ‘Twitter world’ is to the “Woke” Folk what a good ‘yo mama’ joke was to my friends on the school playground. Predictably, AOC punched right back at Pelosi, calling the speaker’s legislative moves ‘a huge mistake.’”

In case your wondering, “woke” is a trendy and relative new term used among our liberal friends which means,  “having an awareness of issues concerning social justice and racial justice.”  “Woke people are allowed to point fingers at all the rest of us “deplorables.”

According to Veronica Stracqualursi, Manu Raju and Sunlen Serfaty of CNN, “Ocasio-Cortez calls Pelosi’s ‘singling out’ of Democratic women of color ‘disrespectful’”

‘“It’s really just pointing out the pattern, right? We’re not talking about just progressives, it’s signaling out four individuals,’ Ocasio-Cortez told CNN on Capitol Hill. ‘And knowing the media environment that we’re operating in, knowing the amount of death threats that we get, knowing the amount of concentration detention, I think it’s just worth asking why.’”

What?

And no, we don’t know the amount of “death threats” you get, or from who.

And what does “concentration detention have to do with any of this?

And how do you “signal out” people?

I’m assuming she means “singling out” people.

BUT, when asked if she thinks Pelosi has racial animus or is racist, Ocasio-Cortez said unequivocally, “No, no, absolutely not, absolutely not.”

Ha!

Well, then what were you exactly saying Alexandria?

I mean, we all have ears, we all understand English, and we all heard you basically call Speaker Pelosi a racist…, whether you want to come right out and it or not.

Then…, Democrat Rep. Lacy Clay of Missouri accused Ocasio-Cortez of using “the race card” in her comments to the Post.

mess 10

‘“What a weak argument,’ Clay said. ‘Because you can’t get your way, and because you are -, you’re getting pushback, you resort to use the race card? Unbelievable. Unbelievable to me.’”

OH – MY – GOD!!!

Wait…, let me read that again.

Are you kidding me?!!!

Democrats do this all day, every day, to conservatives…, but that’s okay?

But it’s “unbelievable” and “weak” when a democrat resorts to this when dealing with another democrat.

Does the hypocrisy know no bounds?!

Representative Clay then added, “It tells you the level of ignorance to American history on their part as to what we are as the Democratic Caucus.  It shows their lack of sensitivity to racism. To fall back on that (trope) is a weak argument. It has no place in a civil discussion,” according to Sam Dorman and Chad Pergram of Fox News.

Ooooh, “level of ignorance.”  That’s a good one!

And again…, “It has no place in a civil discussion,” UNLESS they’re dealing with conservatives.

The far left wing of the democrat party has just adjusted their parameters.  Democrat moderates to them are now on the same level that conservatives are to democrat moderates.

Ha!  Isn’t it funny how that works now?

“The lawmaker closed his remarks by suggesting the four freshmen could hurt Democratic chances in upcoming elections.”

Oh, we can only hope Representative Lacy, we can only hope!

We’ll all tune in next week for the continuing saga of “The Young and the Restless” meets “All My Children!”

WINNING!

He’s in a “squad,” she’s in a “squad,” we’re in a “squad,” wouldn’t you like to be in a “squad” too?!

We’ve been hearing a lot lately about “The Squad,” but what exactly is its deal and what’s going on with it?

squad 7

As usual, MrEricksonRules is here to clear things up and give you an unadulterated view of the situation.

By definition…, a “squad” is a small group of people trained to work together as a unit.

Most “squads” have a name, like a firing squad, a death squad, a cheerleading squad, a military squad, a police squad, a suicide squad, a practice squad, the “Geek Squad,” a rifle squad, the “Mod squad,” a bomb squad, a rescue squad, for example.

squad 9

squad 8

squad 6

squad 3

squad 5

squad 4

Now we have four of our freshmen congress women who have deemed themselves “THE SQUAD.”

That alone is pretty bold. It’s actually pretty ignorant and self-aggrandizing for them to believe they are worthy to be members of “THE SQUAD.”

“The Squad,” according to its own members, supposedly form a unified front to push for progressive changes such as a socialistic form of government, the Green New Deal, Medicare-for-all (including illegal immigrants) and open borders, while opposing support for Israel, Christianity, and anything that could be construed as traditionally “American” or patriotic.

The members of “The Squad” are Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY).

squad 1

Okay…, so now we know what “The Squad” is.

Now what’s all of the commotion about “The Squad” as of late?

Well, it started when they basically accused Nancy Pelosi of discriminating against them and because they were people of color.  By definition, that’s accusing her of being a racist, isn’t it?

Pelosi then got into a twitter battle with them…, and not to be outdone, President Trump had to enter the fray.

He has since been accused of being a racist…, again, and a sexist…, again.

Rather than interpreting what The President said, and telling you what to think about it, like “The Squad” and the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media,” along with the rest of “the swamp…,” we’re going to just look at what The President tweeted, so you can decide for yourself.

First he tweeted:

“So interesting to see ‘Progressive’ Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly and viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful Nation on earth, how our government is to be run.”

Then he tweeted:

“Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!”

He then responded to reporters at the White House by saying that, “If somebody has a problem with our country, if somebody doesn’t want to be in our country, they should leave.”

“When will the Radical Left Congresswomen apologize to our Country, the people of Israel and even to the Office of the President, for the foul language they have used, and the terrible things they have said?” The President added.

“They are anti-Israel, pro Al-Qaeda, and comment on the 9/11 attack, ‘some people did something.’ Radical Left Democrats want Open Borders, which means drugs, crime, human trafficking, and much more.”

“Detention facilities are not Concentration Camps! America has never been stronger than it is now – rebuilt Military, highest Stock Market EVER, lowest unemployment and more people working than ever before. Keep America Great!”

“We will never be a Socialist or Communist Country. IF YOU ARE NOT HAPPY HERE, YOU CAN LEAVE! It is your choice, and your choice alone. This is about love for America. Certain people HATE our Country….”

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump)

So there you have the actual tweets from The President.

Can you see why they’re blasting him for being a racist?

Can you see why they’re blasting him for being a sexist?

Hmmm, I really don’t see it either.

I can see where he’s challenging their politics and their ideas, but I don’t see racism or sexism there.

I just see four anti-American liberal democrats who can’t defend their radical narrative, so they just lazily accuse The President as being racist and sexist in order to deflect the attention away from themselves, while attempting to devalue his remarks.

If you want to, you can “see” racist and sexist intonations in “Mary had a Little Lamb,” “Baa Baa, Black Sheep,” and what about “The House that Jack Built?”

He didn’t build that!

Sorry…, I couldn’t resist.

Rebecca Morin, of USA TODAY, reported that, “On Monday afternoon, the lawmakers responded to Trump’s comments in a press conference on Capitol Hill.  Pressley said the president’s recent comments were just a ‘disruptive distraction’ from a ‘callous, chaotic and corrupt’ administration.”

“Omar accused Trump of pursuing a ‘white nationalist’ agenda.”

Excuse me, but isn’t that a racist remark?  Just sayin’.

“While the congresswomen were speaking, Trump continued to tweet about them, ‘The Dems were trying to distance themselves from the four “progressives,” [The Squad], but now they are forced to embrace them,’ The President wrote. ‘That means they are endorsing Socialism, hate of Israel and the USA! Not good for the Democrats!’”

‘“THIS is what racism looks like,’ Pressley tweeted.  “WE are what democracy looks like. And we’re not going anywhere. Except back to DC to fight for the families you marginalize and vilify every day.’”

Isn’t this a racist calling out President Trump for racism?

Why does everything always have to come down to what someone “looks” like instead of what they stand for?

“Omar, who has been criticized by Republicans several times due to controversial comments she made about Israel, also criticized Trump’s online postings and Trump himself.  ‘Mr. President, As Members of Congress, the only country we swear an oath to is the United States,’ she tweeted Sunday. ‘Which is why we are fighting to protect it from the worst, most corrupt and inept president we have ever seen.’”

‘“Want a response to a lawless & complete failure of a President?’ Tlaib tweeted. ‘He is the crisis. His dangerous ideology is the crisis. He needs to be impeached.’”

Yes…, and in your oath you swear to uphold the laws of our country…, the laws that you are in charge of establishing.  Yet you encourage other politicians and illegal immigrants to ignore and break our laws.

“Ocasio-Cortez, who is a self-described Democratic Socialist, tweeted a thread responding to the president, saying that Trump is ‘angry because you can’t conceive of an America that includes us.’”

It’s not YOU Ms. Ocasio-Cortez…, it’s your dangerous socialist ideas that worry him.

‘“You rely on a frightened America for your plunder,’ she tweeted. ‘You won’t accept a nation that sees healthcare as a right or education as a #1 priority, especially where we’re the ones fighting for it. Yet here we are.’”

What?  AOC’s level of confusion is truly impressive.

It is the democrats who have traditionally employed “scare tactics” with seniors, women, minorities and the underprivileged in general.

Now…, adding insult to injury…, Chad Pergram and Frank Miles of Fox News report that, “House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Bennie G. Thompson, D-Miss., was seeking extra protection for members of Congress [from Senate Sergeant at Arms, Michael Stenger] on Monday after President Trump’s tweets and remarks about the ‘progressive squad.’”

“In the letter for House Sergeant at Arms Paul Irving and Senate Sergeant at Arms Michael Stenger, Thompson argued that the Capitol Police Board should meet to ‘analyze the current threat environment and set thresholds for enhanced safety of Members.’”

Well isn’t that special!

Yes…, by all means…, let’s all be concerned about “enhanced security” for our “open borders” congress people who have no concern about the security of their American citizen constituents, when it comes to letting anyone and everyone into our country, and then fighting to keep illegal immigrant criminals in our country by opposing federal law officers when they try and do their jobs to protect American citizens.

Only in America.

Discrimination…, check.  Racism…, check. African-Americans…, ch…, wait! What?!

It’s true folks. African-Americans are not immune from demonstrating a little discrimination and racism from time to time.

Really!  Believe it or not!

Here…, I’ll show you.

At some event, in Detroit, Michigan…, a group that puts on something called “AfroFuture Fest,” was actually charging one price for whites and a different [lower] price for Blacks or “people of color.”

festival 2

It’s true.

I kid you not.

This, by definition, is both discriminatory and racist.

There is no arguing that…, at least you would think so.

festival 7

Nicole Darrah of Fox News reported, “A Michigan music festival that was charging white people twice the amount for a ticket than ‘people of color’ backtracked its ticketing structure on Sunday.”

“AfroFuture Fest, scheduled to be held in Detroit in August, appeared to change their ticket prices to $20 general admission after receiving backlash for a ticketing inconsistency that offered ‘people of color’ tickets for $10, while ‘non-POC’ tickets cost $20.”

‘“I was immediately enraged just because I am biracial,’ the rapper [Tiny Jag], whose real name is Jillian Graham, told the Detroit Metro Times.  ‘I have family members that would have, under those circumstances, been subjected to something that I would not ever want them to be … especially not because of anything that I have going on.’”

festival 1

“Graham, who said her grandmother is white, said while she understands the goal of equity and equality for the black community, she called the moved ‘non-progressive’ and ‘not solution-focused.’

Oh, and you were doing so good Jillian!

But you finished up with a real bunch of liberal gobbled goop there.

I’d call it a bunch of BS, myself.

“The founder and co-director of AfroFuture Youth, the group which put the event together, told The New York Times that organizers changed the event prices after receiving harassment regarding the pricing structure.”

Ya think?!

‘“For safety, not anything else but that, the new ticket structure will be a standard set price across the board of $20,’ Adrienne Ayers said Sunday afternoon. ‘However, there will be a suggested donation for non-people of color.’”

Oh…, of course Ms. Ayers…, of course.  All of us “non-POCs” would be more than happy to donate our hard earned money just because our skin happens to be a lighter shade than yours!

festival 3

And by all means…, standardize those ticket prices for Safety’s sake!

WHAT?!

You must think we’re all as dumb as you are, Ms. Ayers!

“She said the previous ticketing plan was implemented because ‘events often designed for marginalized black and brown communities can easily be co-opted by those with cultural, monetary and class privileges.’”

Again…, WHAT?!

festival 5

festival 4

And charging “whitey” twice as much for a ticket would stop white people from taking over something called “AfroFest?!”

“AfroFuture explained their policy and rationale for it on their Eventbrite page. Organizers cite ‘equality’ and ‘equity’ in their ticketing, and state their structure ‘was built to insure that the most marginalized communities (people of color) are provided with an equitable chance at enjoying events in their own community (black Detroit).’”

So these People of Color are saying that only People of color can truly be poor?

Please…, tell us more about your racist rationale and racist policies!

Hey…, this is fun!  I can understand now why these guys love playing the race card so much!

racist white memes Lovely Search i hate racism Memes on me

‘“Affording joy and pleasure is unfortunately still a privilege in our society for POC and we believe everyone should have access to receiving such,’ organizers wrote.”

What planet are these people living on?

What country are these people living in?

I know Detroit is a pretty messed up place, but this is REALLY messed up!

‘“Ayers said that as of Sunday, the festival sold 71 tickets — including 13 that were set aside for white people.’”

Whew!  71 tickets?!

What are they going to do with all of that money?

Have these guys ever considered setting up a lemonade stand?

Just sayin’.
