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’.

Way to go Ivanka!  Way to tell these liberal turds where to get off!

According to Sam Dorman of Fox News, “Ivanka Trump rips ‘disgusting’ CNN panel that mocked her father’s supporters.”

“Ivanka Trump, the president’s daughter and senior White House adviser, had some uncharacteristically strong criticism on Tuesday after a CNN panel slid into suggesting President Trump’s supporters were dumb.”

aivanka 1

‘“You consistently make fun of half the country and then complain that it is divided,’ the first daughter said. ‘The arrogance, mocking accents and smug ridicule of this nation’s “Real Elites” is disgusting,’ Ivanka said.”

aivanka 6

Bravo Ivanka!

aivanka 9

Bravisimo!

I couldn’t have said it better myself.

These people do just absolutely make you sick.

“During a panel on Monday night, [anti-Trump Republican strategist Rick] Wilson joked that Trump couldn’t ‘find Ukraine on a map if you had the letter U and a picture of an actual, physical crane next to it,’ Wilson said.”

I would offer Wilson the same challenge!

What an Idiot.

I bet Wilson could where Dumfukistan…, I mean where New York City was on a map, though.

aivanka 5

“That prompted CNN anchor Don Lemon to keel over in laughter. Wilson added that Trump’s support came from ‘the credulous boomer rube demo [demographic].’ In a mocking Southern accent, he added that those people want to think that ‘Donald Trump’s the smart one and y’all elitists are dumb.’”

aivanka 2

Please recall that Rick Wilson is dubbed an “anti-Trump Republican strategist” by CNN.

He may be a strategist used by Mitt Romney, but that would be about it…, at least now that John McCain is gone.

“Lemon kept laughing hysterically before another guest, columnist Wajahat Ali, continued mocking Trump supporters.  ‘You elitists with your geography and your maps and your spelling,’ Ali said with a similarly derogatory imitation.”

‘“Your math, your reading … all those lines on the map,’ Wilson added in a mocking accent. ‘Only them elitists know where Ukraine is,’ Ali said before apologizing and blaming Wilson for the stunt. Throughout all their exchange, Lemon was laughing so much that he had to tell his panelists to ‘hold on’ before they continued talking.”

aivanka 4

‘“Rick, that was a good one. I needed that,’ Lemon told Wilson. CNN did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.”

Lemon, Ali and Wilson obviously don’t even realize how racist and culturally insensitive and demeaning they are.

aivanka 8

Like Ivanka said, “disgusting.”

“The President himself responded early Tuesday morning, blasting Lemon as ‘the dumbest man on television.’ Both Ali and Wilson seemed unrepentant on social media. By Tuesday afternoon, Lemon had not tweeted about the exchange.”

aivanka 13

“Ivanka Trump has tended to stay away from controversy, even refusing to fire back at comedian Samantha Bee when she hurled a crude expletive at her.”

Hey Lemon, Ali and Wilson…, don’t forget to bring your Kleenex to work election night!  I and all the rest of the deplorables will be looking forward to seeing you whimper after President Trump takes the democrats out to the woodshed…, again!

WINNING!

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.

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

You got that right, Kanye.

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

You got that right, Charles.

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

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

akanye 5

Are Trump supporters not being bullied in many cases?

Does the mainstream media not have a liberal agenda?

Well there you go.

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

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

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

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

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

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

akanye 3

akanye 1

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

akanye 6

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

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

akanye 10

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

akanye 4

akanye 9

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

akanye 2

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

A bit of an exaggeration, I’m sure.

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

What are you talking about?

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

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

amich 3

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

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

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

amich 4

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

Seriously?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Yes.

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

Yes.

People like you, Michelle.

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

amich 1

amich 2

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

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

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

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

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

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

Makes sense to me so far.

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

cons 8

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

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

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

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

cons 7

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

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

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

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

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

cons 6

cons 4

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

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

Now there something we can all agree on!

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

cons 5

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

But accuracy was never their goal in the first place.

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

WINNING!

“Racism” is as “Racism” does.

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

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

divide 4

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

divide 1

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

divide 12

They are predisposed to a racist perspective.

It’s the unapologetic liberal agenda.

“Do as I say, not as I do.”

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

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

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

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

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

It’s all a liberal propagandist fairy tale.

divide 9

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

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

divide 10

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

divide 11

divide 8

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

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

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

divide 6

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

divide 7

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.

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’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?

“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.

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!

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.

“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.”

“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.
