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

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

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

And THE “smarter than thou” Yale University.

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

Yes…, that Yale University.

ayale 5

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

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

ayale 2

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

Ahhh, the truth.

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

ayale 7

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

ayale 6

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

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

ayale 3

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

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

ayale 1

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

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

ayale 8

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

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

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

Interesting.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

ayale 10

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

ayale 9

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

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

Wow.

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

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

Now you have to deal with it.

ayale 4

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

amask 4

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

amask 9

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

amask 10

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

amask 12

The shame!

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

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

Hey, I know!

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

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

Anyway…, let’s get back to Howard.

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

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

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

amask 1

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

amask 6

What “polarizing comments?”

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

amask 13

“Polarizing?”

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

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

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

amask 2

amask 3

You have obviously intentionally “misremembered” this , Howard.

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

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

No.

Just sayin’.

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

amask 5

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

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

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

And those people would be right.

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

amask 7

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

I’m sure you think it is, Howard.

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

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

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

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

Well…, right back at ya big guy!

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

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

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

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

amask 8

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

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

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

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

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

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

Just sayin’.

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

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

aoffended 9

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

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

aoffended 4

aoffended 14

For example:

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

aoffended 15

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

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

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

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

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

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

Meat eaters.

Gay people.

aoffended 10

Straight people.

Conservatives.

Liberals.

The Police.

White people.

Black people.

Words.

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

aoffended 5

aoffended 16

Free enterprise/capitalism.

Socialism.

Communism.

Freedom of speech.

aoffended 6

Guns.

Our flag.

Historical flags.

Cultural history.

Racial history.

History in general.

aoffended 20

Religion.

Our laws.

Music.

aoffended 13

Winners.

Irresponsibility.

Unaccountability.

aoffended 18

Our founding fathers.

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

aoffended 2

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

aoffended 19

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

These people who just want to ruin everything.

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

Stupid is as stupid does…

… but these liberals are dangerous!

adefund 18

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

adefund 1

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

These liberals have literally lost their minds.

adefund 12

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

What businesses are going to feel safe operating there?

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

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

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

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

adefund 15

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

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

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

adefund 10

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

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

adefund 2

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

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

“A leftist fantasy?”

More like a social nightmare.

adefund 16

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

adefund 19

Oh, it’s surreal alright!

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

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

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

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

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

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

“Violent police forces responding to peaceful protesters?”

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

I’m guessing the latter.

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

Zero.

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

Zero.

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

Zero.

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

Zero.

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

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

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

Now…,

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

Over a dozen, and counting.

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

Easily in the hundreds, and counting.

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

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

Abolishing police forces and closing prisons.

Who are running these community groups?

The Joker?

The Penguin?

Lex Luthor?

The Riddler?

I mean, really!

adefund 14

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

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

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

Just sayin’.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Well, there you have it.

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

Just the first step.

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

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

Ha!

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

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

adefund 9

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

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

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

The president of the city council!

adefund 21

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

abacklash 15

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

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

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

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

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

Ethnic culture.

Religion.

Geographic origins.

Current Geographic situation.

Wealth.

Politics.

Gender.

Sexual preferences.

And Education…, just to name a few.

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

abacklash 7

abacklash 4

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

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

abacklash 6

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

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

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

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

Where you been, man?

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

“I love my race?”

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

Good for you though, I guess.

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

Make what right?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

abacklash 13

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

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

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

That’s it.

Iowa is the new “whipping boy” for the democrats!

First of all, what’s a “whipping boy?”

A “whipping boy” is “a person who is blamed or punished for the faults or incompetence of others.”

Bingo!

Within a span of 24 hours the democrat party of Iowa and Iowa democrats in general went from being the esteemed representatives of liberal idealism and process to being a bunch of incompetent racists!

acaucuses 1

acaucuses 11

And all at the hands of their own co-conspirators…, the biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media!

acaucuses 10

The “establishment” democrats didn’t mind piling on either.\

acaucuses 5

It was amazing how quickly the Iowa democrats were thrown under the bus!

A round of denouncing their incompetence quickly deteriorated into questioning why Iowa is “allowed” to be the first primary state anyway…, especially since “Iowa isn’t representative of the country…,” racially speaking.

I have learned that Iowa is more than 90% white.

Well we might as well let the Ku Klux Klan pick the democrat nominee from Iowa!

Where were all of these racial concerns before the caucus debacle?

acaucuses 6

I’ve seen numerous commentators of color, on CNN and MSNBC, bad-mouthing the unenlightened, “whitey,” Iowa democrat voters.

Please explain to me again exactly who the racists are here?

I saw where African-Americans had a “beat whitey night” at the Iowa State Fair…, so I guess you could say they’re making progress!

acaucuses 3

acaucuses 2

And now they’re all onto New Hampshire, where only 94% of the people are racist whiteys!

I’m sure the media will figure this out shortly and begin the racial attack on New Hampshire as well.

I have a funny feeling that by the time the 2024 election rolls around, Iowa and New Hampshire will no longer be the first two states up in the presidential primaries.

Just sayin’.

Please…, don’t be an “American Idiot.”

Like the band Green Day says, “Don’t wanna be an American Idiot.”

Based on most of the polling I see, a solid 35%-45% of Americans could be considered “American Idiots.”

aamidiot 11

The funniest poll response I see show that only 55%, or so, of Americans approve of President Trump’s handling of the economy!

Really?!

So 45% of Americans, according to these polls, don’t approve of the way President Trump is handling the economy?!

Seriously?!

He has only set every possible, positive, measurable, record regarding the economy in the history of our country!

aamidiot 2

So what does this tell us?

About 45% of Americans either:

Have no clue what’s really going on, thanks mostly to the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media” and the ever disingenuous democrats.

aamidiot 10

aamidiot 7

Don’t really care what’s going on…, and they just hate President Trump.

Are just plain ignorant and/or stupid.

aamidiot 8

Promote the phony liberal narrative to remain socially acceptable within their liberal dominated environment.

Don’t care about the American people, and are only concerned with maintaining and attaining power and control.

Are anti-American, and want to see America do poorly and ultimately fail.

I also talk to my share of “American Idiots” all of the time.

When they discover I like President Trump, they immediately start verbally throwing erroneous charges they’ve “heard from somewhere” in my face.

The first one is always, “He’s a racist!”

aamidiot 3

aamidiot 6

aamidiot 5

Then, “He’s a sexist!”

I respond, “Why do you say that?”

Their answer usually is, “Because he is.”

They obviously aren’t aware that Donald Trump has a great record of promoting and empowering women at his companies.

aamidiot 9

aamidiot 10

The GOP website points out, “​The Washington Post Headline: ‘Donald Trump, A Champion Of Women? His Female Employees Think So.’”

“Women who have worked with Trump say he was ‘Ahead of his time in providing career advancement for women,’ and he ‘Promoted women in a male-dominated industry.’”

“Louise Sunshine, former Trump Executive Vice President: ‘From the standpoint of being a woman, I just thought he was phenomenal, so supportive and encouraging.’”

“There are more women than men holding executive positions in the Trump Organization, heading such departments as human resources, golf and hotel management, and global licensing, even though women make up just 43 percent of the overall workforce.”

My over-riding response to all of the “American Idiots” would be, “Actions speak louder than words.”

Check out what President Trump has actually done versus the words of his detractors.

In only his first three years in office, President Trump has these tangible accomplishments to point to:

Created 7 million new jobs.

Set an all-time record of more than 158.5 million Americans employed.

Overseen the reopening/opening of 10,000 more factories in America today than on Election Day in 2016.

The unemployment rate for Americans without a high school diploma is at the lowest rate ever recorded.

The unemployment rate for disabled Americans is at the lowest rate ever recorded.

The youth unemployment rate has reached the lowest rate in nearly 50 years.

Hispanic-American unemployment is at the lowest rate ever recorded.

African-American unemployment is at the lowest rate ever recorded.

The jobless rate for African-American youth, ages 16 to 19 fell to 19.3 percent last month, the lowest rate on record.  Black teenage unemployment peaked at 48.9 percent in 2010, in the heart of the Obama years!

Asian-American unemployment is at the lowest rate ever recorded.

Women’s unemployment is at the lowest rate in over 65 years.

Income per household has increased $5,205 since 2017 and is still growing.

Average wages have been on the rise for the first time in over 20 years and are still on the rise.

The U.S. is now the largest producer of oil and natural gas, surpassing Saudi Arabia and Russia. We are a net exporter of energy for the first time since 1957.

Established 8,764 “Opportunity Zones” to promote new jobs in low-income communities.

Poverty rates for African-Americans and Hispanic-Americans have reached new all-time lows.

In addition to all of these historical accomplishments, the President has:

Donated all of his quarterly salaries to different departments within our government,

Seen all-time highs in the stock markets on his watch,

Lowered personal and corporate tax rates, which brought trillions of investment dollars back to America, and put more money back in the pockets of working Americans,

Seen over 7 million people come off the food stamp program,

Signed the “Right to Fire” VA bill, which has seen 500 incompetent employees fired, 200 suspended, and 33 demoted,

Signed the VA “Choice” law, which allows veterans access to private medical care if their VA care is unresponsive or inadequate,

Renegotiated unfair trade deals with China, Canada, Mexico, Japan and South Korea,

Rebuilt our military,

Established the creation of the U.S. Space force, a new sixth military branch of the armed forces,

Signed the Criminal Justice reform Bill, which reforms the system by reforming sentencing for a wide range of first-time misdemeanors or by eliminating incarceration time. It also got rid of mandatory minimum sentences for felony drug offenses.

Signed the “Right to Try” law giving critically ill patients access to potentially life-saving cures,

Been the first U.S. President to meet with a leader of North Korea, and the first President to actually step foot in North Korea.

Removed thousands upon thousands of business and progress strangling federal regulations.

And many more I’m not taking the time to mention.

Pretty amazing, isn’t it?

Well, isn’t it?!

My point is…, there has been no other president in our nation’s history who can produce a list of accomplishments (in only his first three years no less) that even comes close to that of President Trump.

Promises made…, promises kept…, PLUS!

Like I said…, don’t be an “American Idiot.”

Be an informed American.

Be an American who thinks independently and thinks critically.

Be an American who can identify the true enemies of our country and our way of life and an American who will hold these enemies accountable.

Be an American who realizes that President Trump is one of the few people in Washington without an ulterior motive.

Be an American who realizes the President Trump’s only desire is to do what is best for the American people and to do what is best for America.

“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.”

acapp 7

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.”

acapp 16

acapp 6

‘“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.
