Of the roughly 4,300 shootings in Chicago last year, how many were perpetrated by NRA members? Less than one one-thousandth. Grossly misrepresenting the deranged actions of a mass murderer by no means makes the NRA a terrorist organization or its over 5 million law-abiding members Right Wing extremists…especially when a clear majority of gun owners support background checks, mental health stipulations and restrictions on high capacity, automatic rifles. Otherwise, the documented fact a majority of mass shootings are committed by disgruntled or radicalized leftists would support an immediate public outcry to permanently disband the Democratic Party; that same accusatory organization which espoused slavery, founded the KKK, repeatedly marginalizes Islamic terrorism, misogyny and homophobia, incited a nationwide war on police, wields racism as a unilateral weapon of ascendacy, and encourages an increasingly militant response to conservative views and politicians. Educating our youth on how to properly use firearms, respect human life while protecting the vulnerable, is a far more effective solution than contributing to a belligerent culture of hyper-partisan paranoia that displays little outrage over the exponentially greater number of defenseless victims of urban crime.
Whereas ignorant stereotypes and reckless accusations merely inflame societal divisions by needlessly politicizing human tragedy, real progress requires holding individuals accountable for their choices regardless of any societal failure or partisan agenda; including those media, congressional and celebrity opportunists who are quickly becoming the unrivaled harbingers of hypocrisy, hostility and hate in contemporary America. Within every inconvenient truth buried by Snopes or Politifact to protect a false narrative, those sacrificed pawns of abandoned reason, resides the means necessary to both save lives and preserve liberty.
Blaming guns for mass murders is like accusing cars of kidnapping drunk drivers. Until we somehow remember to respect our neighbor and value life, teach our children morals rather than brainwash them with soulless pop culture, the weapon of choice is moot. Better yet, it’s garnish for the logically impaired. Criminals rarely follow gun laws and will always find a way to unleash their hate. September 11, 2001 is case in point…a terrorist plot carried out with nothing more than box cutters. When mass death is the objective you could drive a semi-truck through a parade or public gathering and instantly kill hundreds without blinking an eye. Critics refuse to invoke morality, let alone God, because they’d rather exploit death for political gain,fulfill a predisposed campaign agenda, instead of addressing the actual source of the problem: the rapid decay of our most basic societal norms and a glaring lack of respect for our fellow man.
Contrary to the doomsday prophecies of political opportunists, the weapons Stephen Paddock used were already banned by state statutes and federal laws; he simply modified their magazine capacity to inflict maximum casualties. Like the failed policies of Chicago, the left’s gun control narrative is false, futile and naive. History has proven excessive regulation merely leaves law-abiding citizens defenseless because criminals – oppressive regimes included – will always obtain firearms and/or any other weapon necessary to terrorize society. You cannot stop mass shootings anymore than a government can legislate evil…i.e., human nature. The question isn’t why are guns legal; the question is why are so many people now comfortable ending a human life? A crisis of culture, an erosion of our everyday humanity, cannot be abridged by any law or solved by any soulless politician seeking to exploit a tragedy in the name of a lie. The Windy City boasts some of the strictest gun control measures in America and in a mere matter of months routinely exceeds the total number of individuals who were killed or injured in Las Vegas: the single, greatest mass shooting in American history. Progressivism no more mourn the victims of violence than it values a free, prosperous and independent populace capable of defending itself against all threats; most notably, a corrupt media, modern academia and celebrated anti-American hate groups.
I’m not foolishly claiming guns are the solution to all our problems, not by any means, but they’re a necessary liberty and viable defense in a world rife with crime, danger and tyranny. A majority of Americans fully support the safeguards of background checks, as well as those legal limitations placed on the sale and ownership of automatic weapons since 1986. Ultimately, however, these inanimate objects are only as “evil” as the souls pointing them. Accountability and America’s founding Judeo-Christian values aren’t revolutionary ideals; they’re abandoned “relics” in the name of “progress”. Instilling a sense of decency in our youth and demanding personal culpability from all people is not a matter for partisan debate, but a prerequisite for ensuring the survival of any civilized society.
Celebrity semantics aside, I’m confused as to how an Antifa sympathizing, anti-Trump lunatic targeting patriotic Americans constitutes a legitimate demand for responsible gun owners to further surrender their right to bear arms to the same conniving Democrats who have publicly advocated a hostile “resistance” since November 8, 2016. Perhaps if media propagandists and militant activists didn’t constantly preach class, race, and religious warfare – inciting mass paranoia with the goal of convincing millions Donald Trump is Hitler reincarnated – the world would indeed be a much more united, responsible and safer place. It’s pretentious at best to claim you’re part of the solution to end gun violence when the problem begins with your equally smug rejection of family values, a growing intolerance of political dissension, a hostile ignorance towards the Constitution, or better yet common sense, and an unrelenting desire to demonize America’s heritage and/or poison her future in the name of secular globalism. I fear the fascist goals of aspiring Marxists and the moral carnage of cultural terrorists far more than the inherent risks of living in a country blessed with free will, ample opportunity and natural born liberty.
The Las Vegas Sheriff has reported ammonium nitrate was found in the shooter’s car, along with a cache of rifles, automatic weapons and explosives (tannerite) in his hotel room and at his Nevada home. This attack was not some random act of violence committed by a depressed gambler. Stephen Paddock was a wealthy, retired accountant and real estate investor who frequently traveled across America and Asia; in fact, his girlfriend is currently in Tokyo. This mass murder was planned to exploit a vulnerable location and callously perpetrated against a specific audience: country music fans who have historically identified as patriotic and/or conservative. While many details will come to fruition in the weeks and months ahead, spare me the media narrative this coward was some deranged gun fanatic and probable Trump supporter who snapped after a drunken binge at the poker table. Anything but.
I find it amusing Donald Trump is routinely derided as “divisive” and hateful when his predecessor set race relations back by 50 years and weakened/disparaged America at nearly every opportune moment. For those rabid critics who “misremember”, it was Barack Obama who mocked middle-America voters as bitter, small town xenophobes needlessly clinging to their guns and bibles. If I may, when did supporting the Second Amendment, LEGAL immigration and honoring our nation’s founding Judeo-Christian values become a radical concept? And yet it was under his explicit direction the IRS admitted to singling out businesses and community organizations that identified as conservative, patriotic or even Christian. Yes, once again, nothing remotely discriminatory here. Why again did Homeland Security place proud, law-abiding citizens on the Terror Watch list by declaring “liberty lovers” as America’s greatest terrorist threat…in a country predicated upon liberty and amidst the horrific aftermath of 9/11, no less? The same government operatives who never punished Islamic businesses over their marriage beliefs and ignored the terror radicalization occurring within American mosques, harassed Hobby Lobby and Catholic churches for refusing to provide birth control or insurance coverage for abortions; a procedure that violated their faith and religious freedoms. Still not convinced yet? Of course not.
As much as Obama’s election was a watershed moment in American history, his proclivity for racial discord has been exponentially greater. He immediately politicized the cases of Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown and Freddie Gray, with little regard for the evidence or their criminal records, resulting in riots, destruction of property and further loss of life. Sadly, the former President made no such emotional tributes or pleas for justice after 25 year-old NYPD officer Brian Wilson was shot in the head or when Kathryn Steinle was murdered in San Francisco on July 1, 2015 by an illegal immigrant with seven felony convictions. In response, Democrats publicly vowed to save Sanctuary cities. Barack Obama sent sizable delegations to the funerals of all three black males, personally and very publicly mourned the passing of each individual, but failed to even mention the tragic death of American sniper Chris Kyle in February of 2013. Rather, the White House issued a statement commemorating the death of Whitney Houston later that month. When you’re busy bribing millions of minorities with free “Obama phones” using taxpayer money, who has the time for such colorblind statesmanship, or better yet, basic human empathy?
Anytime a sitting Commander-in-Chief plays golf during the funeral of General Harold Greene – the highest ranking service member killed in combat since Vietnam – no imagination is required to decipher his true loyalties. Mr. Obama’s incessant race-based rhetoric eventually gave rise to militant groups like Black Lives Matter and AntiFa, but more profoundly incited a partisan war on police which triggered an unprecedented wave of assassinations against law enforcement; including 5 officers gunned down in Dallas, Texas. Instead of bringing a troubled nation together, one increasingly fractured by his cynicism, anger and clear racial favoritism, he was content praising Colin Kaepernick for his “courageous” decision to kneel during the national anthem only a few months following the traumatic bloodshed. The same man who illuminated the White House in LGBT colors to spike the proverbial football of social justice, found no such nerve to honor those fallen officers murdered in cold blood while serving their communities.
Not to question the unifying theme of “Cops are Pigs” socks worn by a celebrated racist athlete, but did Barry ever condemn a single case of police brutality regarding a white, Hispanic, or Asian victim, justified or not, let alone publicly decry (without media coverage) a single cop murdered by a drug dealer or due to a violent suspect resisting arrest? No? I guess we should just be satisfied the media’s former Uniter-in-Chief spent hundreds of billions providing for and protecting illegals while our veterans slept in the streets or died waiting for inadequate medical care. Does it even matter the Obama administration denied the request and visa applications of countless Christians attempting to flee oppression in the Middle East and Indonesia in favor of transporting thousands of improperly vetted and/or tracked Muslim refugees into cities across America; many under the veil of night? After all, what American president in their right mind wouldn’t honor tyrannical Cuba as a progressive state, green-light extremist Iran’s nuclear aspirations – a country that vows to annihilate America and Israel on a daily basis – in addition to sending a $400 million dollar ransom payment, attempt to illegally transfer $221 million to the militant Palestinian Authority just before leaving office, characterize the murderous exploits of ISIS as the amateur actions of a “JV team”, or dine with the racist leaders of la Raza and the Muslim Brotherhood?
Any offended critic claiming Donald Trump is the most racially divisive and inflammatory leader in recent memory, must have been completely oblivious, asleep or complicit to the toxic rhetoric and subversive dealings of Barack Obama. At no point in our 241 year history has the needle of American politics moved as far left as it did during the course of his 8 year tenure. In fact, if his Marxist upbringing and radical beliefs received the same level of media scrutiny and hostility as his successor, he never would have even been nominated. Unless I’m completely foreign to the true nature of division and discrimination, nearly all of those who benefited from Obama’s ill-conceived policies and personal associations were either non-white, non-Christian/Jewish, openly hostile towards America, or all of the above. Are we talking about an equitable, patriotic leader defending the interests of all people – most notably the survival and sovereignty of America – or a bitter, divisive bigot who despises America’s heritage with his every breath and still seeks atonement by judging everything through the prism of race and wealth distribution? Until everyone is held to the same standard of accountability, offered the same level of innate respect, racism, sexism, and all other forms of hate will endure unchecked; especially when such distinctions are now repeatedly wielded as weapons to attack any dissenting opinion. It’s just too bad so many supposedly “educated” men and women at the forefront of our national media, entertainment world and social activism no longer have the desire or the decency to admit the difference because they’re still too preoccupied crying over an election.
If athletes, the media and racial activists want to claim injustice and oppression at every conceivable turn, shout racism from every corner, so be it. But if they truly want to make a difference and invoke meaningful change for millions of our youth, then America needs to have an open, honest conversation about crime and the countless lives, both victims and perpetrators, being destroyed on a daily basis. As someone who has friends from all walks of life, races, and economic dispositions, I’m by no means implying whites don’t commit crimes or that the prevalence of poverty, absentee parents, and a lack of education do not contribute to systemic, generational crime. Of course they do. And while it is not my intention to seem insensitive or haughty, these statistics are so damning and unacceptable that we as a diverse, civilized society can no longer be afraid to speak uncomfortable truths simply because they may offend others. There is simply too much at stake. More than ever, this country and our inner cities need role models with an acute sense of accountability, community, not grandstanding players/owners dedicated to publicity stunts or political vendettas that do nothing to address these failings or assuage the suffering of so many people. Giving children hope begins by giving them a sense of pride, moral obligation and an unbreakable belief in themselves that transcends all barriers or racial narratives. The intersection of crime and race is not a juvenile matter of screaming “I told you so” or solved by “taking a knee”, but represents a grave threat to the safety of our communities, the unity of this country and the future of all our loved ones. Denial, albeit by refusing to act upon this crisis of culture or by mastering the accusatory art of political deflection, is no longer an option.
There are dramatic race differences in crime rates. Asians have the lowest rates, followed by whites and then Hispanics. This pattern holds true for nearly every crime category and virtually all age groups. All statistics were provided by “The Color of Crime: 2016 Revised Edition” from Edwin Rubenstein of the New Century Foundation.
- The evidence suggests that if there is police racial bias in arrests it is negligible. Victim and witness surveys show that police arrest violent criminals in close proportion to the rates at which criminals of different races commit violent crimes.
- In 2013, a black was six times more likely than a non-black to commit murder, and 12 times more likely to murder someone of another race than to be murdered by someone of another race.
- In 2013, of the approximately 660,000 crimes of interracial violence that involved blacks and whites, blacks were the perpetrators 85 percent of the time. This meant a black person was 27 times more likely to attack a white person than vice versa. A Hispanic was eight times more likely to attack a white person than vice versa.
- If New York City were all white, the murder rate would drop by 91 percent, the robbery rate by 81 percent, and the shootings rate by 97 percent.
- In an all-white Chicago, murder would decline 90 percent, rape by 81 percent, and robbery by 90 percent.
- In 2015, a black person was 2.45 times more likely than a white person to be shot and killed by the police. A Hispanic person was 1.21 times more likely. These figures are well within what would be expected given race differences in crime rates and likelihood to resist arrest.
- In 2015, police killings of blacks accounted for approximately 4 percent of homicides of blacks, or approximately half of the total number of whites killed by law enforcement. Police killings of unarmed blacks accounted for approximately 0.6 percent of homicides of blacks. The overwhelming majority of black homicide victims (93 percent from 1980 to 2008) were killed by blacks.
- The great majority of people who died at the hands of the police fit at least one of three categories: they were wielding weapons, they were suicidal or mentally troubled, or they ran when officers told them to halt.
- Both violent and non-violent crime has been declining in the United States since a high in 1993. 2015 saw a disturbing rise in murder in major American cities that some observers associated with “depolicing” in response to intense media and public scrutiny of police activity.
- Roughly 6-7% of black Americans, mainly males between the ages of 20-40, constitute 38% of the federal prison population and 35% of local jail inmates.
Disregard those excuses claiming Donald Trump’s “divisive” rhetoric is to blame for all the conflict in America and turmoil in the sports world. This nonsense has been escalating since 2008 and he is one of the few high profile names who actually had the courage to expose their duplicity without mincing words. The truth is, despite all the partisan finger pointing and anthem publicity stunts, the President was embraced as a positive force of change by Democrats, Republicans, racial activists and even liberal Hollywood for over 30 years. He was a welcomed guest at their private soirees, regularly hosted celebrities/dignitaries at his hotels and resorts, won awards for his social philanthropy, was applauded for his random acts of kindness, appeared on nearly every syndicated talk show, garnered fans from all segments of society and routinely interacted with many of his most vocal critics from today on a first name basis. To suddenly proclaim he is the scourge of humanity is to condemn his newfound adversaries by their willing association and unmistakable admiration.
It wasn’t until Trump announced his candidacy, or more profoundly when he actually won the presidency, that Democratic operatives and the media establishment viciously conspired to paint him as a racist, radical xenophobe who kicks puppies on Christmas and rapes women for entertainment. Before the man sought political office, he was never condemned as a white supremacist, let alone called a bigot or once questioned by police regarding a single, alleged sexual assault. These shameless tactics were nothing more than a desperate attempt to slander his name and cripple public support for the extensive change his populist reforms would inevitably bring.
Likewise, this entire National Anthem fiasco, which began long before his campaign ever ensued, simply gave those critics who already hated him and America to begin with but another platform to claim injustice beneath the public spectacle of “racism”. Donald Trump is not responsible for the disproportionate amount of crime in urban America, the number of single parent households, the prevalence of drug abuse, a protected foreign workforce or a growing lack of respect for the law, America and our fellow man. That distinction overwhelmingly belongs to the incessant victimization narrative of pandering lawmakers who would rather collect a paycheck then demonstrate the competence and resolve necessary to exact meaningful, lasting change. Just because political opponents and ignorant athletes choose to believe such sensational propaganda, hardly makes it true or excuses coddled athletes for refusing to stand at attention for a mere 60 seconds before every game to honor the very country and those brave individuals who make our way of life possible; including those black Americans who fought in the Civil War and every subsequent war to protect this nation and secure freedom around the globe.
The American flag and the national anthem were never truly politically contentious until Marxist cultural terrorists sought out to destroy anything that conveyed patriotism or remotely honored America’s “imperfect” heritage. The fact not a single American flag was initially visible at the 2016 Democratic national convention and their delegates successfully voted to exile God from their platform in 2012 before party leaders sought to quell public outrage, leaves little doubt as to the sheer level of radicalization that has destroyed the once proud party of JFK. As long as “We the People” possess faith in a higher power, a steadfast belief in a set of indelible ideals that supersede any man-made, oppressive state seeking to dictate every aspect of our lives, progressives know they can never fully achieve their goal of erecting a dependent, obedient populace that is more concerned with earthly pleasures, entitlements, than any virtuous calling that defines progress as the character of individual liberty.
The escalating racial discord and civil unrest engulfing America is hardly by accident, and by no means a coincidence, for it is a cultural coup of subversive design. The systematic unraveling of the traditional family unit, attacking our founding Judeo-Christian values and the increasingly crass and obscene behavior of violent activists are but a political means to an immoral end. As long as political agitators can hide behind false accusations of racism, homophobia and sexism as the media selectively reports the truth – immigration laws are cruel, only black lives killed by white cops matter, gay marriage will never legalize polygamy, gender conditioning is not child abuse, Obamacare is not an unmitigated failure, natural disasters are proof of unnatural global warming and patriotism is unchecked racial supremacy – they avoid having to engage in substantive debate, earnestly educating voters or being held accountable for their extremist views and endless litany of failures. Although freedom of speech and tolerance are always paramount, freedom from consequences and culpability are not human rights. They’re cracks in the foundation of any evolved, self-aware society inviting tyranny, dysfunction and corruption to conceive under the same roof.
Because the modern left knows it cannot logically defend a majority of their claims, not to mention their “moralized” fascist tactics, they attempt to create a sensational distraction by which to permanently polarize the masses and demonize anyone who dares expose their hypocrisy. If the American flag and national anthem are the unrivaled enemies of the black community, generations of minorities who now claim to be the sole victims of mass injustice and unfairly oppressed despite ample opportunities and special accommodations such as affirmative action, what exactly is Africa to all her descendants and indigenous people; a continent which continues to enslave, murder and impoverish millions of Africans with frightening efficiency and international indifference? Appreciation for one’s lot in life, respect for their country, would never duly exist if such conclusions were incumbent upon eradicating all dissenting opinion or politicizing every injustice and tragedy. Perspective is not a matter of favoritism or forced concessions, but a lesson in humility and personal reflection that demands our participation.
America is only forsaken when we take her for granted by allowing conniving malcontents obsessed with judging her past to divide us into bitter, warring factions incapable of reason or rationale recourse. Black and white, man or woman, rich and poor, gay, straight, or aspiring citizen…our strength is not in the brute totality of our numbers, but in the undying ideals we embody and our collective support for the one nation that tirelessly fights for their survival. If the struggle is indeed the glory and our journey a testament to how far we have come as a diverse and resilient people, the American flag has more than earned the right to fly free from politicized scorn or false strife on native soil. To protest or teach hatred of a respected symbol of freedom is to welcome the demise of the very country and natural born rights one claims to fraudulently represent.
Players are pledging to #standwithkap but refuse to stand for our flag, veterans and emergency responders? Selfish and ignorant! Those media apologists claiming these protests represent our most basic freedoms, forget the same “tolerant” NFL criticized Tim Tebow’s gestures of faith and rejected a team’s helmet decal honoring 5 slain police officers in Dallas, as well as a pair of commemorative cleats honoring 9/11 victims and heroes. Too bad Mr. Colin Kaepernick’s “Cops are Pigs” socks failed to generate the same level of outrage. Yes, liberalism is cancer, indoctrinated hate and a rejection of our most basic values: specifically that of respect and appreciation. The flag and national anthem are not the political property of any singular gender, race or party, they’re universal beacons of hope residing in a revered and blessed way of life…an ideal that transcends all agendas and agents of hostility. They’re timeless reminders, regardless of our struggles and triumphs, of those men and women who sacrifice daily so America may endure and continue to provide opportunities many across the globe still cannot fathom. The fate and survival of the country I love is far more important than any anti-American sports league that coddles spoiled athletes. I choose, and always will, to stand for America!
Yes, Mr. President, I too agree players are employees and should be fined, suspended or fired when they continue to use race as an excuse to disrespect America and exploit hard-working fans’ time and money. There are approximately 6,000 homicide victims of black-on-black crime and over 500,000 black babies aborted annually, but let’s raise a fist and kneel during the national anthem to protest the injustice of 200 black Americans shot by police each year; or roughly half the number of whites killed annually by law enforcement – some justified, some not – without one hijacked sporting event, political march or race riot. Only in America can 13% of the population account for 50% of violent crime and still labor under the delusion white racism is 100 percent to blame for all the problems in the black community. Numbers, unlike unemployed quarterbacks and overpaid players, don’t lie and ignorant political stunts do nothing to change all lives for the better. Respecting America should never be incumbent upon who’s president, but rather a universal respect for a way of life that transcends all races, struggles and ideologies.
If you enjoy watching a whining dog lick its own ass to the thunderous applause of detached sycophants, you would have loved the Emmy’s. Otherwise, this annual gala was but another exercise in futility as smug celebrities celebrated their universal hatred of Donald Trump because they still lack the critical thinking skills necessary to discern fact from fiction, grotesque exaggeration from mature discourse, or better yet find the humility necessary to hold themselves accountable for choosing to support the most corrupt, deceitful and despised presidential candidate in modern American history: Hillary Rodham Clinton.
Perhaps I’m confusing a good Monty Python farce with a Shakespearean tragedy, but any so-called human rights platform that openly invites spewing the stale epithets of racism and sexism beneath the glitz and glamour of catered bliss – blackballing conservative actors/directors/screenwriters while zealously inciting societal discord through the inflammatory stereotypes of identity politics – is a grave threat to the harmony of any society: i.e., Hollywood’s cultivated ignorance and vile intemperance towards civil decorum and intellectual diversity. Choosing to rejoice in the slanderous rhetoric and blatantly false narratives regurgitated by a media establishment that has abandoned any obligation of objectivity for the explicit goal of character assassination – a hopelessly biased medium that has actually stated it’s their job to tell us what to think or who to believe – hardly constitutes a public emergency worthy of our time, respect and undivided attention. The fact so many of these incensed celebrities were completely oblivious to the destructive and absurdly anti-American policies of the previous 8 years is exactly why so many everyday Americans chose self-preservation over self-aggrandizing propagandists and prudence over progresssivism. Unless white supremacy is now the prerequisite of patriotism and common sense the sworn enemy of social justice, color and gender have become the new “search and seizure” mantra of victimization activists seeking to discredit any person or ideology that dares challenge the sheer lunacy of the globalist agenda.
Instead of fostering mutual respect among all parties and holding everyone to the same standard, leftists incessantly conspire to replace what works, or proven effective over time, solely with what sounds good to the fickle armies of entitlement. Failing to reside in the real word where criminal acts and resisting arrest puts people of all color in harm’s way, where funded hate groups and political agitators are the real root of civil unrest – yes, immigration laws, sovereign borders and the doorbells on gated Hollywood communities exist for a purpose – doesn’t make Donald Trump racist or a xenophobe. It makes his critics woefully naive and undeniably incredulous. Likewise, giving credence to profane feminists publicly fantasizing over the President’s death – consciously ignoring the ‘deplorable’ detail news networks and Democratic operatives conspired to recruit false accusers who never filed a single harassment complaint – doesn’t make a man sexist or a rapist in any sense of the word. Such nonsense transforms grown adults into mindless, malicious drones who have no regard for the truth, the plight of actual sexual assault survivors, simply because spoiled children still refuse to accept the electoral results of a legitimate election.
And finally, when you cannot logically deny single-payer socialist medicine is an unaffordable affront to quality healthcare or convince people that single parent households, a crumbling work ethic and a glaring lack of basic decency are the greatest threats to America’s future, cinematic starlets resort to hurling insults and inane accusations to distract voters from the realization real change requires dedication and self-sacrifice rather than pompous displays of televised vitriol. Any contracted host who has the gall to call the leader of the free world a “Nazi” with no historical context of fascism’s atrocities, obviously has no semblance of respect for the fallen or the faintest idea what constitutes mass suffering. Until Mr. Colbert pulls gold fillings from rotting corpses steamrolled into ravines, literally starves to death in a forced labor camp or drags entire murdered families from gas chambers, someone needs to remind him soulless hysterics born from partisan paranoia do not even register amid the unmarked ashes of cremated victims denied the everyday liberties, or should I say the lavish amenities, of limousine liberals living in a brainwashed bubble where mere political dissent now equates to the brutal oppression exacted beneath the Third Reich. If I may, in what twisted heart is such a reference remotely humorous or a subect matter worthy of such intentional indignity on a national stage?
The moment industrious, law-abiding citizens are labeled bigots for exercising their solemn duty to vote or for questioning how their tax dollars are spent while only illegals are celebrated for “dreaming” of a better life and subsequently granted sanctuary from the consequences of their actions, is the moment your opinion is about as insightful as the cost of your six-figure outfit as you applaud those mistreated, millionaire athletes who disgrace our flag and disrespect the national anthem to fight injustice; but just not the variety which encourages rioting and looting based on the race of the acquitted in lieu of embracing the actual evidence. Who needs due process, an ingrained sense of law and order, as long as showcased elitists continue to labor under the delusion they’re the epitome of enlightenment, moral clarity, when in reality they’re the most dangerous embodiment of excused “hate” in America today? No, it is not bigotry or the dreaded “patriarchial society” that is to blame for systemic crime, violence, unequal pay and the inevitable existence of poverty, but a failing of culture and personal responsibility itself. Truly, little is more hypocritical than a cache of coddled fascists claiming to fight “intolerance” by hijacking entertainment forums as their personal pulpit for insulting those marginalized fans caught in the political crossfire of Hollywood’s privileged lifestyle.
As for those apologists who blindly disagree with my contention, when’s the last time your waiter, mechanic or doctor made it his or her business to lecture you about your political beliefs in a manner or setting completely unrelated to the nature of your business? Receiving a trophy and a standing ovation for pretending to be someone else does not make your viewpoints anymore relevant than the censored convictions of common men or women living in most rural reaches of America. And it sure as hell doesn’t grant you domain over the autonomy of individuals who desire nothing more than to watch a celebration of artistic expression, or say a national sporting event, without being endlessly sermonized in addition to being fleeced with outrageous merchandising and ticket prices. It makes you an inconsiderate, insufferable excuse for a human being who somehow believes fame justifies celebrities selfishly bringing their political baggage into the living rooms of independent Americans who are sick and tired of being treated as second class citizens incapable of thinking for themselves.
ESPN prevented Asian American Robert Lee from announcing a Virginia college football game out of fears his birth name was racially insensitive but the very same network has allowed Jemele Hill to continue working despite calling President Trump and his supporters white supremacists and Nazis. Not surprisingly, the same “idealistic” colleagues defending Miss Hill’s unabridged right to voice her opinion outside of work were rejoicing when Curt Schilling was fired for sharing his support of North Carolina’s transgender bathroom law or when Country music icon Hank Williams Jr. was removed from ABC’s Monday Night Football for criticizing one Barack Obama. Sadly, such unforgivable hypocrisy is hardly coincidental considering the “The ESPYs” once gave their annual Arthur Ashe Courage Award to a 65 year-old, cross-dressing celebrity instead of a female college basketball player who eventually died battling cancer or a double-amputee war veteran turned champion triathlete. There is syndicated propaganda and then there is choreographed political terrorism masquerading as social progress. Change the channel, cut your cable cord or end your ESPN subscription until their producers no longer justify insulting millions of sports fans – the very country that affords us the opportunities to enjoy such sporting events with family and friends – while religiously honoring an unemployed quarterback who calls all police officers “pigs” and America “racist” for not celebrating a jaded, millionaire bigot who proudly mocks our national anthem, ignores the unrivaled ravages of black-on-black crime and incites civil unrest with unbridled glee. No show is worth your dignity, the universal values we teach our children, let alone those innocent lives lost amidst the violent aftermath of such irresponsible rhetoric. Hate doesn’t need a misguided sports anchor to confirm its existence; it merely requires a morally bankrupt medium to spread the false narrative that injustice is a one-way street. Until Jemele Hill is fired and this incessant glorification of Colin Kaepernick ends, I refuse to even consider watching another second of their shameless political subversion of the games I have loved since my childhood.
America was not forged with the red hammer of conformity, nor was our revered way of life preserved by the idle hands of modern entitlement. This republic was erected as an ideological bastion from which to harbor ordinary men and women from the historical remnants of injustice and to protect the indelible liberties of all mankind. As a sovereign nation defined by stringent geographic boundaries, our founding creed has no such limitations for life, liberty, justice and the pursuit of happiness are universal birthrights derived from the dominion of God’s grace, creation and wisdom. And while it is true America cannot serve as the moral police of the world – bear the human cost of fighting every battle to free every forsaken soul from the clutches of oppression without their willingness to recognize and defeat tyranny themselves – there is no respite from the conscious aftermath of acquiesing to human atrocity.
Reducing our defenses to the point of non-existence, albeit for economic gain or misguided policy, is to leave ourselves at the mercy of malevolence. I do not subscribe to the pacifist conundrum that by burying our head in the sand, ignoring the atrocities of totalitarian states or Islamo-fascists, “We the People” make our country safer & the world a better place in which to reside. It is simply the equivalent of watching a rape across the street & doing nothing to stop it. Frankly, we are better than that. There is courage and then there is cowardice; no excuse will ever suffice in the annals of history or before the eyes of God. When our nation’s resolve was baptized beneath the ruddy carnage of Pearl Harbor our military was so vulnerable & neglected it took years of nationalizing private industry to rebuild our feeble defenses. For far too long the United States of America – the supposed fearless leader of the free world – callously hid behind a policy of isolationism as World War II raged on & millions were lost beneath the boot of German fascism & Japanese imperialism. In essence, by casting a shadow of weakness, our calculated indifference eliminated any hope of deterring or preventing such a horrific tragedy. Truly, how many more lives could have we saved? More profoundly, what if our families were the victims of Holocaust, the Ukrainian Famine or the Armenian genocide? Should I even have to ask such a selfish question?
Pretending evil does not exist, failing to prepare for its inevitability, will not save us from its wrath. Likewise, blaming America for 9/11 is but to embolden our enemies for they will never cease in their lust for our demise. If ISIS or North Korea can speak openly of their bloodthirsty hatred for Western Civilization, cultivate their culture of unapologetic brutality, why should this “last, best hope of mankind” cower in the politically convenient shadows of capitulation and appeasement? America is but a name, for it is freedom, tolerance, and our Judeo-Christian ideals they despise. To lower our guard out of some misplaced sense of guilt or to seduce political favor is to sentence this nation to that which we are already guaranteed: death. I do not fear death; I fear watching my loved ones needlessly suffer beneath the rolling fog of blind apathy as any chance for recourse or valor fades beyond the autonomy of my fingertips. For the sake of my children and the country I call home, I would rather fight for the soul of creation – the last vestiges of decency and hope – than to kneel before the soiled blade of subjugation of our. May God Bless the heroes and victims of September 11th, 2001 and may humanity forever honor its intrinsic duty to eradicate such unrepentant evil where ever it may exist.
Democrats never say they are committed to stopping voter fraud, merely that they’re dedicated to “everyone” voting. This slippery admission tells you everything you need to know, or in other words, nothing you didn’t already suspect. The truth is Voter ID doesn’t discriminate against or disenfranchise anyone. How can it when everyone is held to same standard of accountability? If you can’t even verify your identity, validate and protect the authenticity of your vote, how are you a victim of anything other than your own ignorance and apathy? Without proper identification how can election poll workers stop an unregistered voter who knows your name, date of birth and address, let alone someone casting multiple votes by assuming a different identity in each precinct? People have TWO YEARS in-between elections to obtain a photo ID; yes, the very same pertinence you need to drive a car, file for welfare, cash a check, win the lottery, buy beer, board a plane, adopt a pet or attend the Democratic National Convention! There are excuses and then there are outright lies. If our elected officials were truly dedicated to eliminating fraud and ensuring the legitimacy of our elections, our sacred duty as citizens, every American would be required to pass a computerized fingerprint or retinal scan before voting. Professional con artists like Hillary Clinton welcome and encourage voter fraud because 99% of its existence favors leftist candidates. And now you know why criminals hate red tape almost as much as they mysteriously misplace their mug shots. Apparently cameras are racist too.
Any party or politician that cannot stand on the merits of their own convictions and public service record without the benefit of voter fraud is inherently wrong for America and a disgrace to the people they claim to serve. If you need to invent injustice and incite animosity to rally support for your withering candidacy, perhaps your chauffeur can wipe the blood off your “Stronger Together” bumper sticker as you bypass the ghetto graveyard of broken promises on the way to your daughter’s lavish wedding paid for with pilfered disaster relief funds. I don’t need to resurrect the newly forged registration cards of the dead to realize most Democrats have little regard for the integrity of our elections, the viability of our laws or the sovereignty of this nation. If you actually believe illegal immigrants and Islamic refugees know what’s better for America than everyday, law-abiding citizens who are privy and loyal to our founding ideals, your God-given liberties, then you deserve to live in a corrupt cesspool as your freedoms, sanity and property are slowly liquidated from your naive grasp. Anyone that zealously courts or engages in voter fraud solely to win an election – albeit through absentee, repetitive or non-citizen voting – is a stain on the soul of those men and women who died to procure and protect our way of life. If I need photo identification to buy a gun, then so should those casting a vote to potentially strip me of my Constitutional right to bear arms and defend myself against all forms of tyranny; or more profoundly, legalized lunacy.
For those who oppose or are outraged by President Trump’s decision to end DACA, or Deferred Action for Child Arrivals, I have one question: when does a lie built upon another lie suddenly become an unjust truth? As an Executive Order issued by Barack Obama right before the 2012 election, DACA was never legally binding let alone whimsically constitutional. While any President can issue Executive Orders that expound on existing law or direct certain federal agencies to act in a prescribed manner, our Chief Executive cannot use this inherent power as an attempt to bypass Congress, unilaterally write new law or invalidate current legislation. In other words, “illegal” immigration did and still does denote a punishable crime according to federal statutes.
The failure of Congressional Democrats to both ram and coyly sneak Amnesty by their Republican constituents on multiple occasions merely emboldened an already rogue President to further abuse his powers. Considering the Obama administration was later ordered by a federal Judge in 2015 to cease and desist distributing millions of Green Cards through the Department of Homeland Security as part of his Executive Amnesty plan – an oxymoron also known as Deferred Actions for Parents of Americans (DAPA) – it’s evident DACA was the first stone cast in a series of calculated distractions designed to specifically circumvent jurisprudence with the intent of triggering an unprecedented wave of unchecked immigration. When your goal requires using grown children as media props to deflect criticism in order to achieve De facto Amnesty for entire families – i.e., to protect countless illegals from deportation until Congress officially issues a reprieve or sanctuary states like California fraudulently grant them the right to vote – the Constitution, the welfare of actual citizens, is obviously of little concern in the Kangaroo Court of public opinion.
As someone who fully appreciates and supports the premise that is America, I openly welcome all legal immigrants who respect our sovereignty and complete the required naturalization process to pursue a better life. However, there is a stark difference between political exploitation – pardoned ignorance or indifference to achieve a corrupt political goal – and equal deference in the eyes of the law. Illegal immigration is not simply a harmless matter of trespassing that is needlessly blown out of proportion by white, patriotic xenophobes. In today’s climate of global terrorism and rising anti-American sentiment, illegal immigration represents a tangible threat to our national security, the functionality/survival of our schools and hospitals, and an undue burden on taxpayers; those men and women, in addition to competing with an influx of foreign labor for American jobs, must now account for the over $100 billion spent annually to care for impoverished immigrants or to incarcerate those criminal perpetrators among their ranks. Sound reasonable or remotely equitable…regardless of one’s nationality, creed or color? Or, if you like, just ask the survivors of Hurricane Harvey who now must reclaim their lives amidst the aftermath of $150 billion in devastation.
While I do not blame children for the wrongful misconduct of their migrating parents, such conscious choices do not negate a crime’s existence or change the nature of our laws. I for one do not and have never believed that a child born on American soil to non-citizens, especially ones conceived by illegal immigrants who knowingly disregarded our laws, is a natural born citizen. That, in my opinion, is purely wishful thinking born from false assumption. Whereas some believe the term “anchor baby” is a derogatory term used to wrongfully describe mere extenuating circumstances, I believe the acronym DACA is even more offensive once you realize a former President, ever fearful of losing his re-election bid amidst sagging approval numbers, concocted a completely illegitimate program that was actually designed to save immediate or extended families of illegal children from deportation by pulling on the heart strings of America. The fact DACA has existed this long without being struck down by the courts, dismissed by states or defunded by Congress is an absurd failing of our government’s clearly enumerated checks and balances. Since when did false appearances and corrupt intentions warrant concessions to the very pandering bureaucrats responsible for this enduring mess?
The Obama administration knew quite well most American voters with kids, or God forbid anyone with a soul, would not want to witness families being torn apart once a child was granted a protected status. Likewise, because most illegal aliens are not at risk of deportation, unless they’re felons, militant agitators or identified gang members, I believe Donald Trump’s pledge to delay ending DACA by six months so Congress can rightfully take action and “do their job” is both prudent and compassionate. Any subject matter as vast as immigration reform should always include the input and approval of all necessary parties and government branches. Not only have conniving politicians muddled a simple procedural issue of due diligence for decades, but in what other country can my “American or white privilege” receive immunity for illegally entering a sovereign nation; not withstanding committing robbery, assault, rape, tax or welfare fraud while claiming to be the victim of racism? And yes, excuse my common sense, but why aren’t Asian, European or Russian immigrants also marching under the hollow cries of injustice? As a firm believer in Karma, or more profoundly respect, accountability and honesty are the antidote for 99% of our ills both as a country and a species.
Despite the devious ploys of Democratic “Dreamers” and anti-American agitators, sympathy should never be a fabricated crisis molded into political capital but rather a sincere reaction born from true concern or mistreatment. For those DACA participants seeking to remain in America past the program’s termination despite lingering claims of “victimization”, I have no problem granting such a request as long as these individuals are fully vetted, abide by all terms of their “guest” worker/student status, are barred from receiving federal or state assistance during their stay and permanently denied voting privileges unless they leave the country, apply for re-entry and are granted citizenship under the new RAISED standards of naturalization. If DACA was truly about allowing “Dreamers” a chance to appreciate the countless blessings America affords to all – and not some bankrupt, partisan scheme to subvert our laws, discredit our founding values and forever tip America’s electoral balance – than hard work, earned trust and ample opportunity should more than suffice for those seeking to escape the depravity of their native countries to dine from the preserved tree of liberty.
As Texas begins the arduous journey of recovering from the horrific aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, it is heartwarming to see so many complete strangers from different walks of life – regardless of race, wealth, or political affiliation – come together to selflessly help those in need. Although some critics will always attempt to politicize a natural disaster because they’re far too infantile to grasp the gravity of the situation or too callous to care for the true victims of misfortune, the courage and compassion shown by volunteers from across America are an inspiring reminder that it is not politicians or agendas that bind us, but a mutual love for life, liberty and an unwavering desire to protect our loved ones. And while we must not forget to grieve for those who died or to identity those soulless dregs who chose to loot property amidst the ongoing cries of human suffering, Texas is proof that a strong, independent spirit can also serve as the epitome of empathy and love. Just because fanatical factions within both parties tirelessly strive to dehumanize one another, to convince us hate, greed, and privilege are the most common modalities in society, by no means requires everyday people to accept their destructive premise or to follow the hollow prose of divisive parasites. For the moment we choose to abandon our humanity and God-given capacity to reason, to perceive one another as mortal enemies rather than innately seeing ourselves in all people and plights, is the moment America is forever lost. America is not a gender, a race, an economic class or the sum of a myopic two-party system where bitter pundits seek to drown our senses in misery and paranoia. It is the only country I want to call home. Tragedies like 9/11 or Hurricane Harvey should never have to remind us what it truly means to be an American; they should instinctively make us feel eternally grateful that we all are one.
When a scheduled Patriot Prayer Rally is reported as a white supremacist assembly by the media and therefore must be canceled due to security concerns, we’re no longer living in America – a country predicated on Judeo-Christian values and an indelible love of liberty – but George Orwell’s dystopian nightmare “1984”. Instead of Democrats and Republicans alike uniting in a civil setting for a peaceful demonstration of tolerance, a much needed refuge from the orchestrated hostility gripping our nation, AntiFa terrorists were allowed to harass and assault innocent bystanders as local police were once again nowhere to be found. Considering these brutal attacks would result in immediate arrests and an equal display of force by law enforcement on any other day, no excuse, degree of denial or apology will suffice. The only crime more hypocritical and egregious than hateful militants beating fleeing victims under the false flag of “stopping hate”, is for those officers who vowed to protect and serve our communities to consciously stand down in the face of such imminent brutality. When political allegiance or disdain for a President trumps common sense, duty, and any remote sense of remaining decency, the result clearly mirrors the madness.
Despite facing real injustice and oppression, Martin Luther King Jr. never hid behind a mask because true “social change” never validates violence, animosity through anonymity, it demands moral strength through visible courage. Those false accusers who blame the abused to justify smothering free speech or coerce undue concessions are by far the greatest embodiment of hate, societal division and civil unrest. The precedent we unwittingly set, or apathetically allow to endure, is the fire in which today’s children – America’s future – inevitably burn.
If progressives are not going to unconditionally condemn this proliferation of Marxist style propaganda and Nazi Gestapo tactics – justifying violence by fabricating fear and demonizing all political dissent as immoral extremism – it is only a matter of time before the oppressed bear arms against those seeking to put them, and their inalienable rights, in a permanent body bag. And on that perilous note, I call on President Trump, the FBI, and the Department of Justice to restore order, make arrests and to indict the unapologetic perpetrators of domestic terrorism. The single, greatest trick the media ever played was convincing millions of Americans “extremism” only pertains to the right side of the aisle, when in fact the intolerant left, the Democratic Party, is still the single greatest embodiment of radicalism in America today. How else can a political party built on racism, seduced by communism and now an adopted anti-American sanctuary of malcontents that increasingly moralizes mass conformity through the iron fist of fascism, continue to exist? Only in the alt-reality of disposable history, where indoctrinated ignorance and celebrated bliss converge to embrace the most notorious forms of human tyranny, are liberty and logic labeled as hate crimes for attempting to loosen the grip of tangible evil. The staged theatricality of blame and bigotry are powerful agents of deception in this escalated progressive war on truth, patriotism and ideological sovereignty.
Anyone who physically attacks Free Speech, terrorizes peaceful political rallies, should permanently lose their right to vote. Actual jail time/community service (no less than 30 days) and fiscal compensation should be dependent upon the severity of their crimes.
1) When confronted, threatened or attacked by a hostile Democratic Socialist, remove fascist coward’s mask because “innocent revolutionaries” should never be required to conceal their “honorable” identities
2) Take a picture or record a video of said “anonymous” criminal perpetrator(s) with the assistance of friends and/or like-minded associates. There is nothing illegal about defending yourself or identifying your assailants
3) Confiscate backpacks filled with AntiFa propaganda, weapons and other potentially unlawful pertinence
4) Document all materials for publication on an internent database entitled “AntiFa Unmasked” to expose militant thugs and warn fellow Americans of impending danger
5) Turn all acquired evidence into the police, along with signed affidavits of assaults, to secure indictments or at the very least provide law enforcement with an acute awareness of active anarchists and other radicalized suspects
6) Return to the scene of disbanded AntiFa hate, sing God Bless America and embrace/shake the hands of all willing pedestrians: regardless of gender, creed or color. Unity born from natural volition is never defined by uniform submission to fear or coerced conformity, but achieved amicably through a universal respect for liberty – the indispensable necessity of intellectual diversity – and by equally protecting all peaceful applications of dissenting opinion.
Only by standing together against the violent aspirations of organized hate, by demanding accountability and embodying civility in our communities, can decent, law-abiding Americans defeat the armies of intolerance – the applauded terrorist wing of the Democratic “resistance” – and restore our country’s founding premise of individual liberty for all and freedom from all forms of tyranny: both foreign and domestic.
Knock! Knock! Who’s there? Pizza? Fluffy? Absolute awareness? While creationism has left the door open for a secular crescendo of doubt, science has sought to rip the House of God off its theological foundation and definitively answer the most evasive question in human history: who or what created life as we know it? Thus, the intergalactic search for the fingerprints of divinity and friendly aliens has produced perhaps the most controversial hypothesis ever put forth: the Big Bang theory.
As both a disciple of Christ and the evolutionary embodiment of science, knowledge gained through observation and mathematical probability, I too love the Big Bang: that iconic moment when atheists magically appear to protest an imaginary God. Or perhaps, just maybe, all that mass and energy that was bottled up and inexplicably confined for eternity…but not in the form of an omnipotent being or conscious energy of course…was the catalyst of intelligent design. Where there is structure; there is purpose. Where there is purpose; there is intent. Don’t you love when a Mercedes materializes out of thin air without a single engineer, commercial or mechanical blueprint? The fact the humane genome stretches to the moon and back over 250,000 times shouldn’t scare any “nonbelievers” or raise any red flags of evolution. Yes, that was empirical doubt disguised as sarcasm. Fred Hoyle, the scientific author of the Big Bang, called his celebrated hypothesis dubious at best and highly unlikely due to the massive statistical improbability the right amount of force and mass would correctly mix in order to form celestial objects and in the process, exact life.
In order to keep from becoming the biggest dud in unrecorded history, or the biggest anomaly since Pop Rocks and Pepsi, the Big Bang had to essentially catch lightning in a bottle. How so? Balance, Danielson; balance! If this cosmic explosion was too strong, matter would only exist in a gaseous form, diffusing at such a substantial rate that stars or planets would be unable to take shape. Likewise, if the bang was too weak, gravity would have pulled the expanding matter back unto itself, eradicating any possibility of celestial bodies forming. As a primer to this singular event, our world renowned astrophysicist Fred Hoyle estimated the odds of life forming on its own to the tune of one shot in ten to the forty thousandth power. That number is so astronomical, excuse the pun, not even a socialist with a meth, yacht and gambling addiction could spend it. Wow, good thing our Indian ancestors taught us how to count. Forget that, I need a solar-powered calculator.
The probability that life started on its own is 1 x 10-40,000.
Therefore, we would naturally ask ourselves if some “entity”
was behind the beginning of life. When scientists test
hypotheses, they test what is called the null hypothesis
or a statement opposite of the hypothesis that presumes
the original hypothesis is wrong. In this case a scientist
would attempt to validate the assumption there was no
entity behind the beginning of life; that it began by chance.
The researcher then determines the probability that the
null hypothesis being tested is false. The standard used
to reject a null hypothesis is = 0.95. A 0.05 probability
can be restated as 1 × 10-1.3. As such, the probability
that life started on its own is many magnitudes smaller
than 0.05. Thus, a scientist using standard statistical
methodology would easily reject the statement that
life began by mere chance.
Life, in its most elementary form, is far from some archaic stew; a random assemblage of mix and match proteins. The DNA of the simplest bacteria contains nearly ten trillion bits of information, more than five million paired bases, all precisely encoded for the purposes of survival and reproduction. And you thought your computer was a dinosaur? Don’t flatter yourself! By contrast, a human’s DNA is a scintillating sequence of approximately three billion paired bases of four separate chemicals; each arranged in perfect order. To duplicate the supposed biological splendor of human evolution, you must flawlessly sequence our DNA through mere adaptation and chance alone. Furthermore, you will be completely isolated, unable to consult anyone or anything, and must finish this paltry paradigm in a little less than 4.6 billion years. Oh yeah, I almost forgot. You cannot begin until the first sign of life appears, which, according to some scientists, will take at least a billion years under the most ideal circumstances; not excluding, of course, that little meteor mishap, the occasional ice age or the ecological plunder from the unlicensed fireworks of super volcanoes.
If you feel like you just gave birth to an accountant, or better yet Carl Sagan in a turtleneck, you’re not alone. And what does Charles Darwin think about his fashion sense or better yet the butterfly collar effect of this biological quagmire; you know, that English naturalist who floated the supremacy of evolution as the genesis of life and not the divine blueprint from which engineered life evolved?
“To suppose that the eye, with all its inimitable
contrivances for adjusting the focus to different
distances, for admitting different amounts of light, for
the correction of spherical and chromatic aberration,
could have been formed by natural selection, seems, I
freely confess, absurd in the highest degree.”
~Charles Darwin, 1859
Other than the inevitability of death, neither science nor religion can definitively lay claim to the throne of creation. Science cannot disprove the existence of a god, though it can “theoretically” account for the origins of life. Religion cannot prove the existence of a god, though any account of creationism must ultimately utilize some form of intelligent design…a scientific framework. Thus, by some literary twist of fate, it seems our two competing notions of universal induction are cosmically linked, or in modern nomenclature, sleeping under the same roof! Please excuse me while I read a little “Genesis” before going to bed and magically begin to feel “genetically” enlightened. I don’t need to solve a riddle or look in the mirror to know life is an unrivaled gift that cannot be enumerated, dismissed or reduced to the palatable tastes of scientific conjecture.
“As for me and my family, we will serve God, we will serve this constitutional republic, we will serve America.” ~Allen West
Nearly 1,000 protesters descended upon the NFL’s headquarters in New York to demand Colin Kaepernick is signed by a new team. Yes, the very same man who turned the football field into his personal political playground and who forgot he was paid to play a sport, is somehow now a victim of racist owners who refuse to lose more paying customers by indulging his wanton disregard. Yet, not one of these outraged activists have organized a single demonstration (let alone mentioned) concerning the 6,000 black homicide victims of annual black crime, the roughly 40% on welfare, the highest unemployment rate of any racial demographic in the U.S., or the fact less than 50% of blacks currently own a home. Raising a fist of solidarity through social media or kneeling during the National Anthem does nothing to assuage the true source of urban America’s struggles: the moral decay of our communities, absentee parents, rampant crime and drug abuse, insufficient higher education and job training, a crumbling work ethic and a glaring lack of respect for ourselves, our fellow man and America itself.
I don’t need a crystal ball to realize if Colin Kaepernick was a white player not one protest would have been held to validate his foolish actions. In what other universe can an athlete insult his fellow countrymen, disrespect their native flag, and not be attacked by fans, let alone keep his lucrative job? These volatile public displays concocted in the name of “social justice” are little more than opportunistic grandstanding designed to seek pity, fame or undue concessions through mass coercion, rather than getting in the unoccupied trenches of societal change and working tirelessly towards solving these perennial problems. Unfortunately for the resumes or Mr. Kaepernick, Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton, real “hope and change” requires responsible, competent leaders willing to lead by their actions – getting their hands dirty in the absence of fawning cameras and political agendas – without giving endless speeches, shouting racism at every misfortune and self-inflicted wound, or cashing seven-figure checks to further one’s professional aspirations. If you’re going to pawn off another decade of celebrated moral decadence, racial division and urban blight to the next sold-out generation of affirmative inaction, at least have the gall to admit the circus comes to town only once every four years. At least then the black community will know what the going price is for used stage props.
ESPN has temporarily replaced an Asian American employee who was scheduled to announce a nationally televised football game in Virginia because his name is Robert Lee. No, that is not a typo and yes I wish I was joking. Somewhere a black Elvis has a job for not being Elvis and somehow no one has rioted or asked for a paternity test! Forgive my functional spine, but how do these neutered, hyper-apologetic and spoonfed sponges even make it out their door without spontaneously combusting from exhaling carbon dioxide or drowning in a kiddie pool overflowing with their own unbottled, politically correct tears? Although I typically love to watch a good farce, here’s a little friendly FYI, ESPN: your attempt to place bubble wrap around the fragile feelings of coddled Antifa and BLM viewers who probably cuss, drink, discriminate and watch porn even more than your network needlessly interjects social victimization into sports…was distinctly and unequivocally racist! Sorry but Asian lives matter too; no matter how bad your ping pong ratings may be! Next time try sending every melting snowflake traumatized by the mere coincidence of a name, a box of chocolate laxatives, a “shit happens” t-shirt and a signed picture of Forrest Gump wearing his U.S. Army uniform while defending his white hippie crush from an abusive communist at a Black Panther meeting. Or, if you prefer insanity with a side of infamy, just hire a surly replacement named Joseph Stalin and not one of your liberal viewers will be offended or wonder why the Ukraine never brings halftime snacks. Who would have guessed Gulags don’t have cable? Or food?!! Ignorance, not reality, is now the most widely acceptable form of political flattery.
The reason the Supreme Court recently reaffirmed that hate speech constitutes protected free speech is because putting limits on self-expression inevitably invites further censorship, and if left unchecked, legalized tyranny. It is common knowledge the left wants to punish and even criminalize those political deviants who do not believe in global warming, gun control, abortion, illegal immigration or who refuse to address transgenders by their adopted pronoun of choice; and in some instances, some states and institutions have already sought to impose such nonsense. While I despise the racist rhetoric of the KKK, BLM, or La Raza, their right to do so is the crux of maintaining a free republic founded upon individual liberty. However, with that being said, please allow me to strongly digress. There is a stark contrast between detestable free speech and those who incite violence or seek to silence others through brutal oppression. The best way to confront the oxymoron known as AntiFa – the anti-fascist, fascist gang of partisan anarchists who oppose white supremacy with racial bigotry and defend democracy with death threats – is to confront them with overwhelming numbers wherever their hateful ranks seek validation through chaos. Only by recording their vile stupidity – their reckless assault on police, political dissent, patriotic Americans and the Constitution itself – can we defeat this rising tide of millennial fascism and educate the public, our children and future generations, as to the true destructive nature of the intolerant left.
The more the Democratic Party and the applauding media justifies the dissolution of discourse and all civility, the more likely these sponsored domestic terrorists are to exact further bloodshed and torment our communities. Nevertheless, as a fellow citizen and concerned friend, I must urge great caution. Never confront these masked cowards alone or without possessing some means of self-defense. The backpack brigade of college dropouts, gender militants, unemployed Marxists, and self-entitled video game assassins reside in a detached bubble, or quite possibly their parents air conditioned basement, where reality and empathy no longer exist. Any organization that is willing to drag an old woman with our flag, weaponize their bodily fluids against law enforcement, cut a pregnant mother, or ransack a public official’s home, obviously possesses no soul or any semblance of human decency. Because there is strength in numbers, but more profoundly providence by embodying unwavering resolve, “We the Everyday People” who come from all walks of life, who love our country and respect the rule of law regardless of our differences, will no longer be intimidated or accept living in a decaying state of perpetual moral depravity. Without coercion or needless savagery, our voices and mass demonstration of unity must dwarf any wandering band of sadistic malcontents or screeching bullhorn of blind contempt. The armies of ignorance who seek mass conformity to a regressive agenda, to demonize liberty and the voters of any election result they violently reject, represent the worst type of hate; fear born from the false propaganda of an aspiring police state. The only fate worse than living in a totalitarian nightmare is refusing to recognize the unopposed beginnings of one.
For those who believe removing monuments has nothing to do with whitewashing history along partisan or racial lines, allow me an antiquated moment of indulgence. Although institutionalized remnants of Hitler and his infamous Third Reich were rightfully removed across Deutschland, there are countless young Germans today who know of his reign but are completely oblivious to the numerous atrocities committed by Nazi Germany. Many of their native citizens still do not believe concentration camps existed or that 6 million Jews were even exterminated as part of the Final Solution. Due to national embarrassment and/or fear of further retribution, these inconvenient truths were commonly omitted from their classrooms and history books; which, ironically, parallel the attempt by some U.S. educators and historians to conceal the Democratic party’s racist roots, insistence upon slavery, legacy of obstructing civil rights and indoctrination of Marxist/Islamic beliefs.
Until progressives accept that light and darkness innately exists in us all, for only our choices ultimately delineate our past from our future, their refusal to condemn their party’s tainted symbol and sordid history should be far more offensive than any weathered memorial that doesn’t reduce a man’s contributions to whether or not he associated with human servitude. Otherwise, please explain how an intolerant ideology founded by a glorified pedophile, misogynist, murder and thief has nearly two billion ardent followers today without the civilized world demanding a single reformation of its most barbaric practices and beliefs? Rather, now the executioners of American history are demanding Western xenophobes assist the unapologetic immigrants of Islam’s destructive creed.
If removing Confederate artifacts has nothing to do with sanitizing history or discrediting our heritage – subverting our founding values by demanding concessions through incited racial conflict – please explain how the besieged memories of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson or Abraham Lincoln are suddenly the American equivalent of Adolf Hitler or even Vladimir Lenin: a ruthless communist dictator guilty of genocide against his own people who Seattle currently honors with no less than 7 statues. And yet in this epicenter of progressive thought and social justice, not one, angry, offended soul has defaced them or demanded their removal? Although the Egyptian pyramids are universally revered as one of the seven wonders of the world, a monumental achievement of our ancient ancestors, I can find no condemnation by world leaders or organized protests over the fact they required prolonged slave labor, the forced conscription of peasants, and mass death. Do their lives or rights not matter or is history essentially a platform from which to evolve, dissect and understand, not posthumously adjudicate for political gain in order to justify mob violence hundreds of years after such injustices occurred?
Does the fact New York City harbored more slaves than any other city (except Charleston) and was founded by Dutch slave traders warrant its dissolution; a thriving metropolis that now resides over a notorious “Negro Cemetery” because black slaves weren’t deemed worthy of being laid to rest with Christian whites? No, not even one toppled statue or public accusation of White Supremacy? Hmm, how not ironic. As expected, not one of liberal New York’s historical sites or erected personages of pride was vandalized to resurrect the forsaken or seek recompense if only for posterity’s sake.
Without perspective and unbiased reflection, it’s disturbing how quickly basic decorum morphs into AntiFa militants impersonating ISIS henchman by cursing free speech, assaulting innocent bystanders and destroying anything that contradicts or poses a threat to their hateful agenda. As “We the People” now wander aimlessly in this weaponized cloud of orchestrated deception, how many campaign issues that were so crucial to voters and Congressional candidates in November have resulted in meaningful discourse and earnest cooperation during past sixth months? The same public servants citizens elected to fulfill their solemn duty of working towards solving America’s most pressing issues in a civil environment, are now fully content spending every waking moment spreading absurd accusations, trading juvenile dispersions and waging petty vendettas that merely deepen partisan distrust, impede lasting progress and allow our government to toil in a perpetual state of dysfunction and undeterred corruption.
When politicians refuse to acknowledge the most glaring hypocrisies and toxic ploys used to suffocate common sense and poison unity, everything America has fought to overcome is surrendered to her salivating enemies as the social decoys of sexism, racism and inanimate objects are religiously blamed to justify the aftermath of false allegation. In a nation predicated upon helping the opressed escape the unjust whims of tyranny, who needs the annoyance of anecdotal history when pointing the sanctimonious finger of mass hysteria is sufficient enough for triggering cultural euthanasia.
When I watch a staged mockery of kneeling U.S. veterans weeping at the feet of modern tribal leaders, basically begging for forgiveness amidst a media circus of cultivated resentment for actions they did not commit, witness or entirely understand, it is nothing short of disgraceful. Such shameless propaganda validating Hollywood stereotypes merely inflames lingering tensions by seeking the blessing of those who willingly portray themselves as the living remnants of unprovoked American aggression – i.e., the helpless and unsuspecting victims of Anglo-Saxon brutality – but never as the descendants ruthless predators who routinely embodied animosity and death to conquer any vulnerable target or perceived enemy without fear or reservation.
As someone who has studied Native American history, the Trail of Tears and the legacies of Pontiac, Tecumseh, Sitting Bull and Chief Joseph, I take great umbrage with pundits who claim America was nothing more than a bloodthirsty invader who can never atone for its past transgressions. I make no excuses for our government’s measured betrayals or those rogue generals who sought glory and fame through the cross-hairs of hate. Such grotesque violations were wrong and unequivocally beneath our nation’s founding charter. However, if we’re merely being objective observers, and not coerced apologists, Native Americans were hardly the benevolent and peaceful “victims” of European imperialism as portrayed by cinema and liberal academia. Vicious tribes like the Apache, Comanche, Cheyenne and Lakota butchered each other in droves – attacked settlements, federal outposts and mere common transients out of spite – and even kept defeated enemies as trophy slaves; routinely engaging in human trafficking with other tribes or French, Dutch and English traders.
It is also of little coincidence that nearly all Indians were highly adept in the art of human suffering. From the infamous practice of scalping men, women, and children – which colonialists later adopted as proof of successful kills – to removing the organs of captured adversaries while they were still alive, the sheer animosity and distrust of competing civilizations, let alone neighbors, merely fed the incessant brutality of the day. If you can imagine being buried up to your chin in the desert, or left to rot beneath the glaring sun as a sacrificial snack for ants, scorpions, or snakes, “injustice” is hardly a historically exclusive term. It’s a human trademark.
The rise of the American Indian population was eerily similar to colonial expansion in that they displaced other supposed “invaders”, earlier nomadic cultures, by “infringing” upon their lands and/or using brute force to establish supremacy. In essence, those more adept at killing and conquering their enemy survived for sovereignty was only as relevant as the strength of your spear or the aim of your arrow. And unlike the countless victims of Indian hostilities, which are too often disregarded by history revisionists, many of these tribes received monetary compensation, land grants, and tax abatements…which modern day descendants now use for commercial ventures such as casinos and mining ventures, or via subsidized college tuition. If equality demands equal treatment and unconditional respect, why aren’t all victims viewed or paid the same? To say any sect of humanity owns the political rights to human suffering in a world defined by universal hostility is to claim one form of terminal cancer is far more tragic than another. Educating all subsequent generations and foreign creeds to unite against such senseless brutality, however, is far more beneficial to the moral evolution and survival of mankind than any misguided attempt at financial recompense.
Contrary to misconception, the so-called derogatory term “red skin” was first adopted by Indian delegations as a term of endearment and solidarity when meeting with then President James Madison, rather than a callous epithet created solely to belittle an entire race. Like our newfound republic, they sought strength in numbers to survive an inevitable battle of attrition. Regardless of how we judge one another through the spectrum of history, I will always revere Native Americans as fiercely independent, skilled survivalists who instinctively found a symbiotic relationship with nature. Although they were deeply spiritual and highly perceptive, their way of life inevitably succumbed, like so many others before them, to an even greater force of nature: technology, or more succinctly, the mind of man. While both groups adopted and assimilated advantageous aspects of each other’s culture over the centuries…horticulture, horses, medicinal applications, tactical weapons…the supremacy of any civilization has always resided in its capacity for war.
Unlike those European countries that evolved from perpetual warfare, American Indians simply lacked the numbers and technological advancement necessary to defeat a more powerful and versatile foe. And if they by some chance repelled the rapid proliferation of Western society, who knows how different the world would be today in the extensive wake of America’s absence, economic prowess, military might, transcendent discoveries and immutable ideals. Otherwise, in a parallel universe of political correctness and mandatory guilt transference, the rightfully proud society of surviving Native Americans could very well be asked to apologize to the victimized descendants of European colonialists for being the historically superior nation or for instinctively guarding their borders to preserve their country, their culture and their very lives. In other words, placing an asterisk on an epitaph marking historical injustice is as pointless as asking your newborn baby permission to forgive you for being born a white male who must now atone for his genetically inherited sins. We all possess an inherent right to forge a life free from the burden of assumed obligation and the wrongful allocation of past strife.
If more spoiled athletes refuse to honor the flag, respect our veterans/fallen heroes and recognize the countless blessings America innately affords all people, I suggest playing the national anthem before players are introduced or can even take the field. Why give a growing faction of ungrateful millionaires a national stage to needlessly politicize sports and thus feed the cultivated myth injustice is the private property of any sole ethnic group? Just because some foolishly choose to believe the senseless propaganda claiming a majority of Americans, Donald Trump voters and police officers are white supremacists, doesn’t make it so. It makes overpaid, fully-grown men recklessly paranoid and ostensibly gullible.
This country, those families spending hundreds of dollars just to attend a single game, deserve far better than such a grotesque display of ignorance and coddled lack of appreciation. Since when did insulting generations of loyal fans become an acceptable form of entertainment? The same whining activists currently threatening to protest NFL games because Colin Kaepernick is now unsurprisingly unemployed, were eerily quiet when Tim Tebow – a former Heisman trophy winner who won 6 games consecutively and beat the Steelers in the playoffs during his first season as a starter – was routinely mocked for his religious beliefs and couldn’t even secure a roster spot as a back-up quarterback on a last place team only one year later. Perhaps if he beat his girlfriend, wore socks portraying cops as pigs or partied with escorts on a yacht in Key West, he would have generated enough “street cred” to win the support of the anti-American establishment.
It’s an ominous failing of our culture, our most intrinsic values, when reciting an universally inclusive prayer during a nationally televised game would garner far more contempt from the media than those applauded opportunists inciting hatred of our country, the law enforcement community, with their misguided actions and morally select outrage. Until 70% of NFL players realize less than 10 percent of the population accounts for 50% of all violent crime in America – the fact a black athlete is 30 times more likely to be murdered by another black man than shot by a “racist” police officer – the only flag anyone should be protesting on Sunday is that of the yellow variety. Although bigotry and injustice will always exist in some form or facet of society, a hypothetical future forged upon the replayed cards of racial distrust and adopted victimization will inevitably falter beneath the collective weight of endless accusation. United we stand, but divided humanity falls.
A few final thoughts on Charlottesville…
This entire political melodrama reeks of an orchestrated ruse for two reasons. First, the “Unite the Right” march organizer, Jason Kessler, was a known Occupy Wall Street participant and a vocal Obama supporter who held many traditionally liberal views: such as, but not limited to, gun control, abortion rights and socialist healthcare. He is no more a voice for right-minded Americans than I am for Antifa. Second, no self-respecting conservative, libertarian, Independent or traditional Republican would align themselves with the KKK, white supremacists, knowing how tirelessly the media has worked to paint Donald Trump as a lifelong racist and Nazi sympathizer since the inception of his campaign. While I do not deny hate groups have held public events for decades, it’s obvious this specific gathering was targeted and hijacked by prodding leftists with the explicit intent of instigating violence and manufacturing national outrage to further undermine the President’s endlessly besieged credibility. Why else would local police from a known Democratic state stand down in the face of eminent hostility, anarchy and potential loss of life? If it smells like fire but looks like arson, the most plausible explanation typically resides in the spark of false accusation emanating from the sponsored bullhorn of those critics who unapologetically wish for your death.
Media charlatans and lynch mob Democrats want to censure, even impeach the President for saying he unconditionally opposes hate groups and violence in his original public response to Charlottesville. And yes, I’m pretty sure that universal maxim included white supremacists, Neo Nazis and those KKK members who fought with Antifa and BLM agitators in the name of “unity”. When your only goal is to slander, assassinate or remove the President by any means possible, the simplest statements become the most offensive and misconstrued truths. Or, if common sense is far too taxing on the average anarchist, anti-American mind, perhaps the unbiased jurors of mob justice should smash some more historical monuments to end racism, dig up a few more Confederate graves to combat depravity, or demand the posthumous inquisition of our Forefathers who apparently must now be evicted from the very Constitutional Republic they risked their lives to build – to provide a better life for the poor, the persecuted and the forsaken from all walks of life – but just not stricken from the transcendent document that provided the indelible means for America to overcome the most glaring injustices stemming from any culturally accepted norm during any socially imperfect era.
Burning America to the ground will not make the world a better place, or right past wrongs, it will merely reaffirm who truly despises our way of life and seeks to divide us according to the identity politics of race, gender or any variety of “victimized” plights. Who needs the validation of foresight when fascism is offering ignorance by erasing history for free?
Free speech does not cease in a nation predicated upon individual liberty, nor does it inevitably qualify as a “hate crime” simply because you disagree with or are deeply offended by the personal beliefs of others. There are no ‘safe spaces’ from the self-inflicted micro-aggressions of reality…i e., one’s own insecurities or deep-seated biases. Tolerance, disregarding the newly socially engineered version that slanders or threatens divergence with now disturbing regularity, is a prerequisite of free will and the fundamental crux of open and constructive discourse; a Socratic ideal colleges should be obstinately preserving rather than forcibly constricting in the name of fostering political uniformity.
Students, our own sons and daughters, should never be afraid to speak their mind out of fear of condemnation or retribution in our institutions of higher learning, let alone in the sovereign confines of a constitutional republic that openly rebelled against intrusive government, religious persecution, and the oppression of mankind’s natural born rights. If the immediate goal is to label all conservative views as hate speech, then the ultimate objective is the dissolution of our nation’s founding premise and the justified demise of due process. Tyranny goes by many names and you don’t have to be a philosophy student to matriculate into the baited den of madness. One merely must realize that totalitarianism is a futile endeavor because human nature, regardless whether America is buried and replaced by the most progressive state, will always challenge the limitations of any authoritative society that seeks to stifle our unique faculties and man’s innate desire to be free. While freedom of speech does not guarantee freedom from consequences, nor does it pardon terroristic threats, those activists attempting to suffocate the rights of unwelcome perspective, using “racism” as a justifiable alibi to incite violence and civil unrest, represent a far more nefarious threat to America’s survival than those brash voices willing to speak their coarse minds and openly face their detractors. The first step in accepting tyranny or unconditional subjugation is to rationalize why you must first surrender your rightful independence.
Although I have no love, respect or earthly need for white or black supremacists, ANTIFA, La Raza, the Muslim Brotherhood or Marxist-Leninists, no one sect or ideology should be less entitled or more accountable for their actions. To quote Voltaire, and to rejoice in the “Common Sense” of Thomas Paine, I may disagree with what you say but I will defend to the death your right to say it. Democrat, Republican, liberal, conservative, Christian, atheist, white, black, gay, straight, rich, poor, Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton…to bask in the light of liberty, the transcendent gifts of humanity’s intellectual prowess, spiritual and empathetic capacity, is to shed the shackles of coerced silence. Those beliefs which cannot stand upon their own merits and withstand the natural rigors of honest scrutiny, will in due time wilt beneath the unsustainable of their own hypocrisy. When confronting “hate speech” requires the political distraction of false accusation, juvenile antagonism and welcomed brutality, the so-called justified response becomes far more deadly and divisive than an annual parade of fools or the mere deployment of words. I am far more wary of those lost souls who are willing to adopt the morally bankrupt premise of senseless rhetoric, then those who merely speak of it to solicit attention.
Right or wrong, I would much rather embrace the uncertainties of individuality, encourage the open exchange of competing ideas to challenge my convictions and unearth the best possible solutions, than to faintly exist amidst the blaring stigma of stereotype to justify mass conformity. Progress, our insatiable thirst for excellence and innovation, isn’t born solely from the comfort of serenity or the pulpit of self-righteousness; it is most often forged from the fires of failure, dissent, necessity and most notably, self-discovery. If people are not willing to discern truth from fiction, volition from fascism as sentient beings, then perhaps it is the media’s job to tell us what to think, feel, eat and drink. Two and a half centuries of Americans didn’t toil and sacrifice so their tepid descendants could bite their tongue and recoil in fear amidst the Orwellian tactics of glorified political terrorists. They risked their very lives and the welfare of their children so the flame of freedom, the very First Amendment of our inalienable Bill of Rights, would endure without condition. These unfiltered voices of free will knew what it meant to be an American; more succinctly, they overwhelmingly understood their liberties were a birthright, derived from the grace of God, and not ransomed by any government decree or bloodthirsty movement.
As long as the media wastes more time and resources manipulating public opinion to needlessly demonize or potentially “assassinate” our President – his repeated recognition and clear rejection of hate in all facets of America – instead of equally exposing the actual instigators and perpetrators of mob violence, hate will grow in congruence with society’s unwillingness to identify racism without the prism of political consent. Inflaming century old racial tensions simply to selectively report hate exists, does nothing to alleviate its existence or to responsibly condemn intolerance in any of its sprouting forms. Even if ANTIFA, the KKK and the sponsored armies of fascism beat their perceived enemies into submission, they would merely ensure the reciprocal means of their own demise. You can no more command the dead than a tyrant can earn the respect of the brutally oppressed. When “tolerance” requires bloody knuckles and hateful epithets – flash mobs of masked thugs assaulting political dissent – America becomes the first casualty of partisan contempt. Anarchy, however, eagerly invites them all.
The Confederate or “Rebel Flag” so widely commercialized today, the suddenly controversial symbol which replaced the original “Stars and Bars” of the Confederacy in 1863, was merely the battle flag of the Northern Virginia Army under General Lee. It later became the official embodiment of state sovereignty in the face of excessive or intrusive federal power; a struggle that continues today against militant groups like Antifa who believe centralized rule – silencing dissent, wealth redistribution and assigning conditional rights – is the answer for erasing America’s imperfect history and finally achieving racial/economic equality once and for all. Wheres the infamous Nazi swastika represented white supremacy, fascism and mass genocide under Adolf Hitler, the Confederate flag came to fruition long after human servitude first appeared in America. To those proud descendants outside of the race-baiting media plantation, the “Dixie Flag” remains largely symbolic of those fiercely independent states that were loyal to our founding creed of limited government, rather than the sole product of those racist attitudes so prevalent throughout the 19th century world.
Just because liberal academia has convinced a sizable portion of America the “Confederacy” possessed no redeemable achievements outside of slavery – such as our early agrarian prowess or saving America by defending New Orleans alongside black and Indian volunteers during the War of 1812 – doesn’t invalidate their contributions to a country that now affords millions of immigrants and minorities opportunities their native countries could faintly fathom. And yet as we stand in this Orwellian whirlwind of purging history and labeling politicians racist who dare employ reason rather than joining the firing squad, how ironic is it no one is asking the Dutch, the English, Portugal or Spain -nations who streamlined slave trading to the New World – to surrender their recognized colors or commissioned monuments of so-called national identity? If “We the People” are going to be historically accurate in this politically correct centrifuge of posthumously adjudicating justice, shouldn’t America give equal credence and outrage to those symbols, leaders and organizations that bear equal, if not more horrific legacies?
Unless knowledge now requires a press pass to buy Nazi memorabilia on Amazon, which it doesn’t, the Democratic Party fiercely defended the institution of slavery for over 30 years since its inception, forged the KKK as the terrorist arm of their party to dissuade blacks from voting, and opposed nearly every civil rights reform from the Emancipation Proclamation to the Civil Rights Act of 1964. If Dylann Roof was guilty of being an unapologetic racist, the twisted disciple of the KKK, Democrats are undoubtedly his founding father; the same ideological seed behind the fascist/supremacist factions of the Black Panthers, the Weather Underground, Occupy Wall Street, Antifa, and Black Lives Matter. Coincidence? Hardly.
The black flag of ISIS, an internationally despised symbol of religious intolerance and hatred – guilty of denying women basic civil rights, killing gays for merely existing, and beheading nonbelievers at will – has been spotted in Muslim communities across America and its representatives have even been invited to college campuses; the supposed safe harbors of enlightenment for our youth. Does embracing such antiquated evil not enable further depravity, degrade our societal values and inherently invite more death? How is it a flash mob of rabid delinquents “rightfully” destroyed a divisive city memorial that had nothing to do with the civil unrest their ranks consciously sought in Charlottesville, but the images of Che Guevara, Vladimir Lenin and Karl Marx, infamous Communists and/or known mass murderers, have become an honorable political statement and the preferred wall décor of students and educators nationwide; yes, notorious butchers also displayed in the election headquarters of the former President of the United States. If I may be so bold, where is the outrage, the acute awareness and ingrained sensitivity for mass injustice? Those who violently seek to eradicate history for the “common good” are typically the one’s most readily implicated its existence or most likely to repeat its timeless failings.
If people find solace in toppling statues and blaming a flag that has flown for 150 years for the misguided actions of a deranged driver triggered by the violent clash of orchestrated chaos, so be it. There is enough tangible guilt and cultured misconception to indict both sides. But know this; banning a colored piece of nylon or smashing monuments to sanitize history and appease anarchists will not heal America’s racial divide or assuage this culture war progressives are waging to achieve their goal of criminalizing American history. It is but a convenient scapegoat camouflaging America’s true ills and moral decay. And because most of these radical leftists view America as an evil construct of white imperialism and greed, where does this purge of the most transcendent country in modern history effectively end? Better yet, where would this “beacon of hope” be without our imperfect past and subsequent cultural growth from these transgressions?
Does the fact George Washington and Thomas Jefferson owned slaves during an era when it was culturally acceptable, diminish their indelible contributions to this nation, the Constitution, or somehow negate their life’s work? If a black athlete murders his wife or an illegal immigrant kills an officer while fleeing arrest, does that make their life moot and devoid of all meaning? Apparently not if you’re an anti-American radical who views all morality, one’s intrinsic value, almost solely through the prism of race. The more “anti-racists” view patriotism as the most prevalent form of enduring bigotry, how long will it be before our flag, the National Anthem, is stripped from our schools, the military or sporting events because its deemed just too offense for public consumption? Once you realize our sons and daughters are being sent home for wearing patriotic clothes, penalized by teachers for supporting the Second Amendment, Donald Trump or God forbid the rights of the unborn, the delineation between freedom and fascism has never been so frail.
America, like all noteworthy civilizations, clearly bears its share of misgivings and missteps. However, the United States Constitution, and not the flawed cultural norms of any era, provided the blueprint for overcoming society’s most daunting challenges and glaring injustices. Because of our Founder’s sacrifices and the foresight of their surviving wisdom, our capacity for self-reflection and societal evolution, I earnestly believe America has contributed far more to the dignity, potential and liberty of mankind – from her countless transcendent discoveries to centuries of economic liberation and by repeatedly confronting tyranny across the globe – than those despotic regimes and inhumane ideologies that continue to flourish today beneath the slumbering scorn of opportunists who continue to disparage America with unbridled pleasure.
While historians and media revisionists attempt to make America the immortalized epitome of human bondage, despite the fact less than 2% of all Americans owned slaves at the height of the Antebellum period, slavery was a global product of cultural relativism that stretched from Mesopotamia to the heart of Africa – the custom bartering practices of African tribes that sold their brethren for common trinkets and an industry that still thrives today with little to no protest or interference from the international community. Contrary to tales of unwavering moral clarity and universal symbiotic harmony, even Native American tribes engaged in slave trading and claimed conquered enemies as indentured servants. Are the armies of millennial mob justice picketing Indian casinos, protesting their federal and state tax exemptions, or burning Teepees dawning hundreds of Southwestern gift shops? Whether proceeded by a spear, a whip, or an Apache Attack helicopter, human nature is the most consistent trigger of injustice but the most grotesquely misconstrued fingerprint of politicized blame.
No, I’m not absolving the South for its sins, I’m just putting them into perspective. There are millions of decent, compassionate, law-abiding Southerners who aren’t racist or murderers, who proudly bear the colors of the Confederate Flag to honor their ancestors, and who also unconditionally weep for any man or woman killed by soulless bigots. If the enduring struggle of racism and mass violence can be pinpointed to the existence of inanimate objects and not the rogue acts of disturbed individuals, blind hate groups, then we should rejoice in the naïve delusion that wiping the enduring images of Islamic extremism and Communist oppression off the face of the earth will eradicate their destructive creeds forever. Or is their survival simply a matter of historical context and personal choice? Well that depends on whether or not you’re the modern disciple of 60’s radicals and subversive Marxists living in a land predicated upon individual liberty. Although disagreement is inevitable and discourse the innate blessing of living in a free republic, indulging militants who abolish civility for celebrated anarchy marks the end of everything our Constitution represents and what centuries of Americans fought to preserve.
Do not believe for one moment the same lynch mob mugging the moral high ground would not hesitate to destroy Mount Rushmore, drag “demonized” conservatives from their Congressional offices or ransack Corporate offices in the name of social justice. Any person or party that can support an organization founded by a Nazi supremacist with the founding goal of exterminating the black race – one that sells dissected baby parts for profit, no less – will have few qualms following in the soiled footsteps of fascist Germany or Maoist China to coerce conformity, imprison ideas and destroy the mindful teachings of mankind’s ascent from institutionalized persecution and lingering injustice. When the end justifies the means, the means of erecting an imaginary utopia is as easily concealed as the brainwashed bodies willing to bury any proof of their own graves. To each his own beneath the offensive flag of truth.
“…In this enlightened age, there are few I believe, but what will acknowledge, that slavery as an institution, is a moral & political evil in any Country. It is useless to expatiate on its disadvantages. I think it however a greater evil to the white man than to the black race, & while my feelings are strongly enlisted in behalf of the latter, my sympathies are more strong for the former. The blacks are immeasurably better off here than in Africa, morally, socially & physically. The painful discipline they are undergoing, is necessary for their instruction as a race, & I hope will prepare & lead them to better things. How long their subjugation may be necessary is known & ordered by a wise Merciful Providence.”
– A letter from Robert E. Lee to his wife, 1865
According to the unbiased media pundits and self-righteous soldiers of unity, Antifa represents “tolerant” revolutionaries, terrorists aren’t real Muslims, BLM advocates murdering police to end “racism”, the Democratic Party founded the KKK to politely educate black voters, Barack Obama empathized with race rioters in Ferguson/Baltimore to save lives, feminists urged the rape of Sarah Palin and Melania Trump to protect women’s rights, Hollywood fantasizes about Presidential assassination to promote compassion, gender conditioning empowers child transvestites by encouraging pedophilia, la Raza celebrates diversity by intending to demographically conquer America, but somehow a twisted faction of parading supremacists confronted by leftist militants speaks for Donald Trump, 63 million of his voters (including minorities) and all patriotic, white Americans? Naturally. What other insipid, irresponsible conclusion would I expect from the divisive, fake news, alt-truth, violence inciting media establishment?
Instead of unanimously agreeing hate is hate and holding all parties equally accountable without making reckless accusations designed to inflame tensions, partisan politics and petty vendettas are destroying any hope of racial harmony. When your only goal is to destroy Donald Trump and the common sense reforms so many Americans desperately crave – especially after the distinctly prejudiced and unapologetically anti-American policies of the past administration – anything will make sense to the millions of malcontents still conspiring to overthrow an election result by any means necessary.
Contrary to contemporary paranoia, i do not have a problem with nationalism – a fierce respect and undying love for one’s country, its welfare and survival – as long such reverence is not based upon the violent oppression or senseless discrimination of any sect of society. Racial supremacy, however, is a pointless, naive and entirely self-destructive endeavor. Even if one’s claim of racial superiority was rooted in incontrovertible fact, it’s of little relevance in a country as diverse as America, let alone one predicated upon individual liberty and tolerance. Refusing to “coexist” is as much of an attack on our founding values as coercing free will into mass conformity. Furthermore, attempting to silence or limit free speech, the most fundamental manifestation of our natural born rights and the cognitive domain of sentient beings, merely justifies the very form of tyranny censorship inevitably invites.
The greatest contention I have with the chaos in Charlottesville or anywhere else for that matter, besides the grotesque display of inhumanity and needless loss of life, is that professional political agitators like Antifa and BLM solicited protesters, distributed detailed “playbooks” and transported hundreds of militants into Virginia with the explicit purpose of ensuring confrontation and exacting bloodshed. These radical organizations have repeatedly called for the death of police, even proclaimed a need for white genocide, with little to no outrage from the mainstream media or our elected representatives. Since when did unabashed bigotry and orchestrated anarchy not become worthy of being declared hate crimes, or dare I say recognized terror threats, in this hyper-sensitive age of political correctness and publicized mass murder?
Being the KKK has been designated a hate group for over half a century, and rightfully so, shouldn’t the Black Panthers receive similar treatment for their vile rhetoric and cultivated animosity towards millions of white Americans, the very political party that ended slavery and our law enforcement community? Unlike Barack Obama who immediately exonerated and racially exploited Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown and Freddie Gray, triggering riots and a national wave of police assassinations, the President has made no such malicious assumptions or “call to arms” to fulfill a bitter, divisive agenda. He simply denounced the horrific hostility unfolding on national TV and made a renewed plea for mutual respect among fellow Americans; regardless of our skin color, political beliefs or inevitable differences.
Much of the discord currently enveloping America is a choreographed fire sale to give the illusion the country, if not the world, is coming apart because of one man’s ill-conceived policies and contemptible nature; or in layman’s terms, his resolute rejection of the corrupt, prejudiced and failed status quo. Despite his well documented past of social philanthropy, accolades and praise received from the same civil rights leaders now invoking racism, it’s obvious progressives are far more concerned with linking Donald Trump to white supremacy – yet another shameless ploy to disparage his name and discredit his presidency through false association – than fostering amity by addressing the true source of these avoidable hostilities: liberal fascism.
When societal apathy, clear political favoritism, allows criminal malevolence to fester and operate with reckless impunity, tragic events like Charlottesville are hardly aberrations…they are the acceptable aftermath of pardoned hypocrisy. Freedom of speech only becomes a buried anecdote when political charlatans preaching “unity and social justice” implore their followers to belligerently “get in the face” of anyone who disagrees with their partisan aspirations. As repugnant as some views are, our response to those ideas can be equally appalling if not more obscene than the mere exchange of words. When the battle of ideas recuses civility and the merits of one’s convictions for fisticuffs and homicidal threats, ignorance is always the last man standing.
Before 1965 roughly 200,000 immigrants were approved annually to reside in the United States; largely to pursue professional opportunities and/or to reunite with estranged family members. Regardless of their circumstances, these individuals had to demonstration a willingness to assimilate to our culture and provide for themselves without harboring any undue animosity towards America. In fact, applicants were required to demonstrate a working knowledge of our founding ideals, government procedures and laws, in addition to formally pledging allegiance to America while denying serving as a foreign spy or Communist agent. In essence, citizenship was a privilege with firm requirements and stark expectations. Not only were our immigration laws viewed as fundamental necessities designed to protect America’s interests, her citizens and sovereignty – yes, legislation written and ratified by both political parties – they were routinely enforced without any organized protest, media outrage or inflammatory rhetoric from duplicitous politicians plotting to grant Amnesty to an additional 11 million Democratic voters. Immigration was universally accepted as a matter of prudence, non-partisan pragmatism, not a destructive platform to invalidate intellectual diversity through electoral supremacy.
Since 1970, but even more so during the past 15 years, immigration has divulged into a chaotic dereliction of duty that now accounts for over one million immigrants entering America each year; a majority of which are illegal, unvetted, harbor almost no loyalty towards America but somehow were awarded federal benefits, healthcare and education at taxpayer expense. If this astronomical trend continues, 40% of all children in the US will have come from foreign born parents by 2060. To make matters worse, elected public servants who once swore to uphold our laws and the Constitution itself, including one Barack Hussein Obama, have purposely muddled an elementary issue of national security for political gain. “Hope and Change” were obviously the misunderstood, monosyllabic cousins of “Confuse, Conspire and Conquer”.
Despite the disturbing reality illegal immigration costs America approximately 100 billion annually, increases the prevalence of crime and threatens the integrity of our elections through the auspices of voter fraud, sanctuary cities are actually attempting to sue the Justice Department for upholding the law and doing their job. Illegal aliens account for over 25 percent of the current U.S. Prison population, with each inmate averaging 12 criminal offenses and 8 arrests for a total incarceration cost of 7 billion taxpayer dollars per year…ironically almost the same “unaffordable” price tag of building a border wall, minus the cost of deporting repeat offenders. Yet by some unintelligible form of “progressive” reasoning, our President is a radical supremacist for specifically ordering the deportation of career criminals and violent gang members who pose a threat and financial drain to all sects of society; including other illegals, and both naturalized and natural born citizens? Naturally!
Considering Los Angeles alone has spent an estimate 1.6 billion in the past two years providing for and shielding illegals, including offering driver’s licenses, tuition waivers and free legal assistance to sue actual American citizens, bankrupt California is the epitome of the detached bureaucracy attempting to dismantle America in favor of a globalist socialist utopia that criminalizes common sense and seeks to euthanize any concept of self-preservation; if you’re a patriotic, Christian American with a job, a gun and an acute awareness of history, that is.
Under the Trump administration’s new “RAISE” program, common sense will replace political chaos and points will earn the privilege of residing in America. Immigrants seeking work visas and/or citizenship will be given special preference according to their job skills, knowledge of the English language, and willingness to assimilate as productive, law-abiding members of society. In other words, the reignited “Don’t ask what America can do for you, but what you can do for America” creed of John F. Kennedy will help filter out those aspiring burdens who are more concerned with handouts, exploiting both the system and struggling taxpayers, than working towards the betterment and preservation of a free, independent and economically vibrant nation. And yes, these reaffirmed goals of naturalization will also help better identify those bitter transients who despise America and have no regard for her people or survival. Unless burning the American flag, cursing our heritage and attacking Amnesty opponents are now acceptable behavior for foreign guests – smugly waving the symbol of their native countries which so egregiously failed them – such unapologetic logic is long overdue and sorely unappreciated.
The problem with enacting policies rooted in reason, historical precedence, and beneficial to the U.S., is that progressives are bound to protest anything that makes too much sense. Despite the knee-jerk “resistance” prescribed by Democrats, the liberal commune of Canada utilizes a similar merit-based system and routinely denies or delays migrants entrance into their country for both economic and security reasons; despite Trudeau’s mindless proclamation “all refugees are welcome” to assimilate naïve Westerns. Of course, you will hear no such admission by the mainstream media for truth is not welcome in the production meetings of mass manipulation. When buying cigarettes or applying for a loan requires more screening and due deligence than stepping across the unguarded border of a sovereign nation, in a post 9/11 world no less, the insane asylum has obviously mastered the art of absentee voting.
If you thought Sitar music was the annoying aftermath of lazy indigents attempting to become existentially enlightened through hallucinogenic horticulture – the Marxist love child of Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren – the red Armies of Entitlement fed by the wealth redistribution scheme of the Obama administration quietly doubled our national debt by nearly 10 trillion and triggered the first two credit downgrades in American History; an astounding figure nearly equaling the accumulative debt accrued by all other Presidents combined. And to think publicly funded abortions and sex changes, albeit for prisoners and incarcerated illegals deported multiple times, are now being promoted as natural born rights by social activists.
Whereas his predecessor recklessly distributed over one million green cards each year, using them primarily as a criminal means to help illegals escape deportation, Donald Trump will limit that number to 5000,000 or less and require all approved immigrants to wait at least 5 years before qualifying to apply for public assistance. If you’re outraged by one man’s attempt to restore accountability and fiscal responsibility to a politically hijacked matter of national security, but are completely ambivalent towards the treasonous ploys of an anti-American propagandist seeking to supplant our founding values and electoral balance through an orchestrated demographic invasion, you definitely flunked Ethics and hate your grandparents’ powers of observation. How else can an American Governor, bound by the state ratified supremacy of the Constitution and subsject to the jurisdiction of the Department of Justice, refuse to release election data when 11 of his counties cast more votes than citizens or legal voting age?
When the argument is lost and all credible options of opposition are exhausted, one word always remains in the progressive pantheon of victimization: racism. Luckily for civilization, outside the regurgitated excuses of the irrational mind where photo identification is somehow the most unattainable form of pertinence but a nonnegotiable necessity to attend the Democratic National Convention, lies the single greatest manifestation of the real world: consequences. If a white American stood in the heart Mexico City, demanded the right to vote and free entitlements, all while waving the U.S. flag and cursing those Mexican “bigots” who dared to disagree, how long would it be before he was beaten, jailed, or buried? Would I be offered “sanctuary” for committing larceny, assault or raping a Mexican child? No? How quaint. Apparently logic has a passport with an undocumented carry-on of tuberculosis.
There are numerous cases of Americans jailed in Central and South American countries for imaginary or pedestrian infractions, corrupt nationals ransoming their life savings as recompense for their reclaimed freedom, with almost no public outcry of “racism” from those very critics demonizing our right to protect our borders. Yes, it is true, a border wall will not stop all illegal immigration, but such an ominous edifice, fortified by the public knowledge of our recommitment to enforce our laws, will discourage and stop far more people than it entices. I openly welcoming those individuals and families seeking a better life by contributing to a moral and prosperous America, as long as they respect the process and accept the inherent responsibility of becoming a citizen. I simply refuse to provide the kindling for opportunistic malcontents who would gladly watch America burn, bleed her dry behind the veil of political correctness, before lifting a finger to act on her behalf. If thousands can successfully immigrate from Asia, Europe and Australia without organizing a single protest or demanding a billion dollar door prize, our contemporaries South of the border shouldn’t require need a translator to explain why houses have locks and bank cards have pin numbers. Likewise, if the pompous Pope can lecture America behind a 1167 year-old wall designed to repel pillaging invaders, why can’t America build one to weed out aspiring terrorists, disgruntled anarchists and uninvited parasites?
As numerous sources have alluded to previously, former FBI Director Robert Mueller was not only privy to the secret sale of 20 percent of US Uranium stockpiles to Russia, he was a key participant. And now we know why the Clinton Foundation has never been investigated for receiving a total of 145 million in “donations” from the Kremlin, including various Russian banks and businesses. Oh and PS…even the notorious Russian Lawyer, Natalie Veselnitskaya – who was a personal guest of the Obama administration – has ties to the infamous Bill Clinton/Loretta Lynch tarmac meeting where this entire Russian narrative was set into motion as a viable distraction from investigating real criminality, collusion, and thus incriminating themselves. How deep is the swamp? Deep enough to hide the skeletons of every crooked bureaucrat, congressional kickback, awarded government contract, electoral scheme and treasonous foreign affair for over the past 100 years.
While convening an “impartial” Grand Jury in any investigation – especially one with so little credible evidence – is largely a procedural issue to request documents or solicit testimony, it is still a convenient political tool of public manipulation. Despite the remarkable feat Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton have endured no such invasive inquiry, a thoroughly debunked meeting stemming from an admittedly fake dossier, fabricated by a known foreign political agitator colluding with a Russian lawyer (and former White House guest) who was previously and “coincidentally” awarded an emergency visa by the Obama administration, apparently now deserves the ominous specter of a Grand Jury to possibly indict Trump or his son for criminal misconduct. Yep, I concur, truly amazing. Of course I’m completely disregarding Mueller’s relationship with Comey – a clear conflict of interest with a personal friend and FBI colleague who already admitted leaking classified information – his shameless ploy to load this partisan inquisition with bloodthirsty Obama/Clinton cronies and his abusive attempt to expose all of Trump’s financial records and business ties over the past 25 years. Keep in mind these are serious infractions prosecutors could not get away with in the most liberal court of law. Yes, if you can’t convict a man of electoral collusion, at the very least you can legally data mine his private information to be mysteriously shared and weaponized before the 2020 election.
This fiasco has become so blatantly absurd that it’s unmistakably clear Mueller is attempting to dupe Trump into dismissing him, solely to imply scandal and guilt in the court of public opinion because no hard evidence exists, or the swamp has simply abandoned all sense of legal protocol and ethical behavior in a desperate attempt to overturn an election result they still cannot fathom. Regardless of the juvenile posturing, I honestly do not fear the “truth” for all formal requests for clarification have been promptly answered, or even precipitated by the willing release of any relevant correspondence, and this so-called investigation has all the hallmarks of a “witch hunt” because the left is obsessed with drowning the President’s agenda and perceived legitimacy with an avalanche of obscene accusations, frivolous lawsuits and choreographed media ridicule. In the immortal words of Snuffleupagus, so be it. A lie takes far more effort to perpetuate and conceal, than the truth requires to expose the swarming rats biting your kicking feet.
For those who are appalled at the Justice Department’s decision to review the aftermath of affirmative action, please allow me to colorfully digress. Before the concept of affirmative action was introduced and implemented via Executive fiat by John F. Kennedy in 1961, discrimination was plainly prevalent and racism institutionalized throughout America. After all, segregation ended but a mere 7 years earlier and the Civil Rights movement was just beginning to gain steam; as noted by MLK’s Letter from a Birmingham Jail and his iconic “I Have a Dream Speech” during the March on Washington in 1963. While the introduction of these protections was justifiable, whether or not critics agreed, there was little doubt black citizens lacked equal opportunities in many facets of American society.
Unfortunately for the pallbearers of good intentions, 56 years of affirmative action has turned into a vindictive platform to exact social justice; that modern day construct used to consciously discriminate against people of non-color because of assumed “privilege”, an unpaid historical debt or to simply inflame racial tensions. In essence, rather than judging everyone based on the merits of their accomplishments and the content of their character, universities, our government, and supposed humanitarian organizations themselves have used race as a determining factor to reject more worthy candidates.
Now I’m not going to sanctimoniously decree every minority hired under affirmative action was unqualified or that some businesses do not consciously seek to favor white employees or students. Not at all. Humans are highly subjective creatures by nature and the ideal of racial harmony requires equally invested partners. I’m simply stating it’s wrong to deny an Asian American entrance into Harvard, or any race for that matter, simply to accommodate a Native American given preference due to historical transgressions which neither party were victimized by or guilty of committing. Empowering underrepresented segments of the population to find the means to succeed in the workplace or the classroom, albeit by individual mentoring or financial scholarships, is vastly different than giving a promotion to someone who is much less experienced or qualified solely because of the color of his or her skin. In fact, it’s legalized racism and moralized reverse discrimination stemming from an exceedingly false assumption: it’s needed. Oddly enough, despite the reality Irish and Italian immigrants were the routine victims of violence or cultural bias, no special edicts or state sponsored sanctuaries were declared to ease their plight.
Whereas common sense doesn’t require a political affiliation or agenda, obviously acceptance does. Until every member of society is held to the same applicable standard, regardless of one’s heritage or biological attributes, the concept of equality will remain as hollow as it forever will become unachievable. Considering 1960’s black America boasted higher employment numbers and lower crime rates than their contemporary counterparts, despite facing much more daunting challenges, I’d say the only crutch today’s generation needs is the one that spanks their sense of apathy and entitlement. Dysfunctional homes, absentee parents, and eroding family values – a glaring lack of respect for oneself and others – has contributed to a society that somehow believes oppression involves being required to do homework, respecting differing opinions or not spewing profanity in public, in lieu of being forced to use a separate bathroom, beaten for being black or forced to only apply for demeaning, menial jobs.
This grotesque lack of perspective and appreciation is as unforgivable as it is now justifiable in pop culture. If being chased by the Paparazzi and living the celebrity lifestyle of adored athletes and entertainers is the only cure for perceived prejudice, I deserve to play center for the Boston Celtics because 13% of the population constitutes 75% of the NBA and I twice beat my 10 year-old sister at “HORSE” while hungover. As long as the guardians of affirmative action continue to indulge this divisive fantasy rather than equally recognizing the efforts of all who sacrifice and aspire to achieve, “racism” will forever become a politician’s word used to feed off the buried cries of a hopelessly broken system.
Do responsible Americans, excluding the unemployed socialists protesting the cost of xbox live in their parents’ basements, actually believe private enterprise is obligated to share or “redistribute” their profits with the general public; albeit paid employees, the unemployed or complete strangers? If I have a job and my neighbor doesn’t, or God forbid I make more money, am I obligated to give this person a percentage of my income? Is “Bob” going to give me his money if I lose my job and become homeless? Hell no! People open businesses to make money…period! It’s not rocket science or a Right-Wing conspiracy. It’s called risk, work, reward!
If a business or an individual is concerned about economic inequality, wants to donate a percentage of their profits or income to charity, that’s their personal choice. No one – not the government, politicians or celebrities – has the right to tell you how to allocate your own property. Otherwise, these offended activists can open their own establishment, dig deep into their own pockets, and doll out every last dollar to whomever their baroque hearts desire. These smug propagandists will single out Corporate America as capitalist marauders, the purveyors of the poor, yet make no mention of entertainers, actors, and athletes who command astronomical salaries by fleecing struggling Americans with outrageous ticket and merchandising prices. But that’s not capitalism, right? Right?! If you have the gall to accept those million dollar endorsements, have the brass tax to admit you’re a convicted hypocrite who decries homelessness by shopping for “economic justice” on Rodeo Drive. The more able-bodied Americans no longer provide for themselves, prefer to drown in self-pity or willingly become a burden on society, the quicker our only remaining vessel of economic independence sinks.
Capitalism may be the convenient scapegoat of socialists who want to ensure your dependence on Big Government, but it is by far the most synonymous with liberty, opportunity and prosperity. In a market economy, the only limits or chains one must shed is that of their own device. If the armies of entitlement are going to orchestrate public demonstrations and demand $15-an-hour jobs for unskilled, fast food workers, perhaps they should start by buying their iPhone mafia a mirror. There are construction grunts who bust their back everyday and don’t make that much money. If you truly want a better job, try building a thriving business from scratch, educate yourself, learn a trade, or gain valuable experience by working your way up the proverbial ladder; anything besides standing on a corner and bemoaning your “woe is me” Twitter status. No one is forcing you to live in poverty, pay rent in Seattle or to work at McDonald’s. That, my friend, is entirely of your own choosing. For every city ordinance that recently turned the concept of minimum wage into a legalized form of political extortion, there is a cemetery of small businesses who paid their “fair share” without as much as a solitary thank you card or a single, deferred tax credit. But who’s counting, right?
If your future prospects require soliciting “guilt” or protesting “white privilege” to get paid, you don’t deserve to get paid because minimum wage was never intended to be anything but pocket change. Just don’t make me pay $15 for a Big Mac because you refuse to accept what every right-minded American already knows: life is unfair, there are no magic rainbows and no one owes you a damn thing except yourself! In other words, just like two centuries of Americans before you, get off your ass and make it happen. Until then, get off my lawn! You have to EARN that right.
Every time I hear someone invoke slavery or demand reparations, albeit a politician, academic or unhinged activist, I literally cringe. Unless I’m mistaken, the Emancipation Proclamation was issued over 150 years ago, only 1.6 percent of the American populace owned slaves at the height of the Antebellum period and nearly 400,000 white soldiers died to procure their freedom; not that race should ever discern the value of a human life or disregard an abolitionist movement spearheaded by white, evangelical Christians. It is also common misconception the Civil War was fought solely to end slavery when in reality it was far more about state sovereignty (as intended by our Founders), economics, the rapid industrialization of the North, a lack of railway access in the South, and tariffs. Likewise, it is obviously of little concern to reparation revisionists that no living American breathing today “is” or ever has been a legal slave of this Republic.
For anyone, black or otherwise, to consciously compare themselves to lifelong servants – those who toiled, suffered and died under the auspices of slavery – is offensive and illustrates a complete disregard for these victims’ horrific plight. If the millions who were sold into bondage had the liberties every American enjoys today, there is no dollar amount that could quantify their sheer joy and appreciation for reclaiming their God-Given rights and forging their own destiny as equals. Martin Luther King Jr. didn’t identify as a Republican out of some misplaced or partisan need to bury the truth. The civil rights icon knew that if not for the efforts of the anti-slavery party founded in 1854, the dignity of every black sentient being would have remained shackled to the fields of Democratic apathy for years to come.
Not to question the sterling anti-American credentials of the United Nations, but why has no official condemnation or financial recompense been sought in memory of the astounding 5 million African slaves transported to toil in Brazilian gold mines; a sum 10 times greater than the number brought to America between 1750 and 1860? And while we’re on the subject of globalists posthumously adjudicating guilt, why haven’t the Spanish, Dutch or Portuguese governments been implored to pay reparations for sponsoring and harboring notorious slave trading operations for Icenturies on end? Furthermore, unless thousands of Irish families have unceremoniously received a check as compensation for their ancestors being starved, driven from their homes and forced to work as indentured servants in English colonies, perhaps I’m confused as to the true definition of crimes against humanity worthy of absentee enrichment.
Between 1641 and 1652 alone, half a million Irishmen, women and children were murdered by the Crown and another 300,000 were sold as “white” slaves in the West Indies and New World, causing their native population of 1.5 million to plummet to 600,000 in less than a decade. Yes, numbers far more daunting than the estimated 3,000 blacks lynched in America; a grotesque atrocity regardless of the totality. Apparently “victimization” in the modern theater of social justice requires an invitation to sequester an equally detached alibi to not give a damn.
History was never intended to serve as a politically correct blueprint fortuitously spared from the ravages of human vice, conflict and folly; rather it is a road map for mankind to consciously elude the missteps of an imperfect past to forge a universally beneficial future where the innovative prowess of the human mind is as poignant as its cultivated respect for the lives, welfare and rights of others. If I may be so brash, how does paying blood money to disjointed descendants who have little or no knowledge of their own legacy – let alone a respectable appreciation of the opportunities their ancestors’ pain made possible – honor or alleviate the gross injustices committed against the actual victims? Simply put…it doesn’t. Such an exploitative ploy would merely reward those shameless opportunists seeking a free paycheck while punishing innocent taxpaying citizens who never owned a slave or supported its vile existence in any manner whatsoever.
Considering how much the U.S. Government has doled out in public assistance and disingenuous disability claims over the past 25 years, not to mention the eight and nine figure bank accounts many black athletes and entertainers now command, I’d venture to say the term “slave” is about as irrelevant as a black president in a White House. It’s just too bad the modern day pawn brokers of historical “injustice” are so incredibly immune to the human trafficking epidemic that continues to plague the Middle East, Asia and Africa because the perpetrators lack the proper nationality for an indictment of racial iniquity. Apparently the allure of the almighty dollar, appeasing America’s “unpaid” political detractors, is just enough moral recompense to dull the contemporary screams of unchecked human suffering.
History is littered with the human aftermath of tyrannical regimes and aspiring dictators who sought global power, coerced adulation, at the expense of the oppressed. And yet the only revelation more hypocritical than the “civilized” world’s willingness to appease such evil is their concerted effort to marginalize the suffering of their victims; so-called statistical aberrations too often relegated to the triviality of banned history books.
Kim Jong-un is far more than the mindless byproduct of neurotic nepotism compensating for a Napoleonic complex and a bad hair cut, he is a displaced relic of the Cold War. While a petulant child wastes billions of dollars pursuing his recurrent wet dream of a nuclear arsenal – a singular intercontinental ballistic missile that can reach American mainland – the North Korean people toil in poverty, lack basic amenities including a functional infrastructure, and are incarcerated, even terminated, for the slightest signs of dissent or acts of misconstrued disrespect. For a country that allocates the least per capita on healthcare in the world, wastes millions brainwashing children with history revisionism and the mandatory deification of a tyrant – the very man responsible for their unapologetic suffering – it’s of little surprise the North Korean Education Minister was executed for not sitting properly during a cabinet meeting. Who needs critical thinking skills, universal standards of basic human decency, when native children are taught Kim II-Sung used teleportation to single-handedly defeat one million Japanese? More profoundly, who knew Star Trek wasn’t science fiction?
The Korean Demilitarized Zone, considered the most dangerous strip of land in the discovered world, is but a microcosm of the institutionalized denial present in Western Society. Whereas media propagandists and detached progressives love to morally equivocate Donald Trump with Adolf Hitler, a mass murderer guilty of some of the most grotesque atrocities in human history, their love of Marxist principles leaves their ranks almost completely oblivious to the true nature of Communism. Who in their right mind would tout Cuba as a ‘progressive”, modern state – an indigent, totalitarian cesspool its citizens are fleeing in makeshift rafts – let alone acquiesce to the insatiable demands of Iran and North Korea – barbaric and intolerant manifestations of fascism – to grant a homicidal madman the means to murder millions in one rash moment of unbridled hate? Sadly, their identity is as unmistakable as it is treasonous: they are the same delusional 60’s radicals and entitled millennials who need safe spaces from accountability, who religiously attack free speech on college campuses and who still linger under the academic delusion Communism is the ethically superior choice for a Constitutional Republic predicated upon individual liberty and limited government.
I find it insulting, morally irreconcilable, the United Nations and self-proclaimed humanitarian organizations such as WHO and CAIR zealously demonize America for enforcing its immigration laws, combating terrorism and preserving its citizens’ right to defend themselves against all forms of tyranny, only to consciously dismiss and politically pander to jihadists and tyrants guilty of unyielding crimes against humanity. Yes, those disregarded transgressions that far exceed denying ‘transgenders’ a dress on the battlefield or the unique gender privilege of using the bathroom of their choice; requests that would result in their imprisonment, torture or execution behind the very fortified walls of bloodthirsty rulers globalists spitefully protect. Rather than encouraging these tormented populaces to rise-up and reclaim their homeland, restore the dignity of all human life and their natural born rights, the New World Order is content pardoning murderers and thieves to procure the downfall of Western values.
In the early 1980’s, unprovoked terrorist attacks rippled across Europe targeting civilian cafes and nightclubs, which culminated in the deaths of 241 sleeping American servicemen after their barracks in Beirut, Lebanon were bombed. President Reagan, acutely aware of the state sponsors of Islamic militants and their ties to the Kremlin, bombed Libyan military installations and even the palace of Muammar Gaddafi himself under the veil of night. Unbeknownst to critics, the perpetrators of these “mysterious” attacks immediately ceased. Kim Jong-un, if he so foolishly desires, can conduct missile tests and hurl spitballs at America’s geographic sense of security until he turns blue in the face. However, know this truth; for every singular missile that can reach our mainland or strike our allies, the United States possesses the means to annihilate North Korea with a solitary launch for the next 4,000 consecutive days without refrain. If you’re going to tug on Superman’s cape solely to solicit a pre-emptive response of unrivaled recompense, do not decry the results when your research facilities, missile silos, secret bunkers or your lavish living quarters are buried beneath the midnight rubble of pinpoint bombing campaigns; an ability your scientists can faintly fathom.
Like the unwavering “Peace through Strength” doctrine of Ronald Reagan, Donald Trump, General Mattis and Chief of Staff John Kelly do not believe the best way to defeat unrelenting evil is by apathetically waiting for the inevitable body count of senseless appeasement. Therefore, in the immortal words of “The Gipper”, I leave Kim Jong-un with one final straw of prophetic advice: “They counted on America to be passive…they counted wrong.” If self-preservation requires no explanation, the unannounced reminder of our resolve will be as short lived as your vile legacy.
Although I commend Reince Priebus for ceasing his ankle-biting criticism of Donald Trump long enough to help him win in November, he is representative of the new spineless GOP that is far more afraid of being called “conservative” – torchbearers of those timeless ideals most synonymous with America’s ideological founding, independent spirit and economic vitality – than being a willing accomplice to the suicidal progressive agenda. Contrary to the incurable misery of victimization peddlers, you can’t drain the swamp when you’re content drowning with the same dregs incessantly inciting race, class and gender warfare to achieve their anti-American dream of establishing a soulless, centralized state. Make no mistake about it, the President is going to war with Congress because the once proud Party of Reagan has become so afraid of its own shadow, its retreating ranks have abandoned their sworn duty of preserving this last, best hope of mankind for future generations waiting to be baptized by the abundant blessings of liberty. Whereas Mr. Priebus preferred tip toeing across Washington to passively avoid breaking the skeletons of the corrupt status quo, General John Kelly will unceremoniously bust balls, take out the trash and make grown babies cry before having his morning “covfefe”. Leakers, propagandists and Benedict Arnolds beware…there are no apologies, social graces or half measures when the only remaining option on the breakfast menu is to Make America Great Again. Yes, garnish is for suckers.
The United States Military is not about indulgence, political agendas or pointless self-expression; it’s overriding mission is to mold a group of men (or women) into an effective fighting force designed to achieve a strategical objective with a minimal loss of life. These protocols are not an open invitation to debate, nor a stage for interpretation, for they are intended to instill respect, minimize distractions and foster an undying sense of unity. From the rigid specifications of uniforms to the perilous details of combat training, the single greatest modality of interest to our Armed Forces is that of conformity. Furthermore, any perceived physical weakness or sensory impairment, such as obesity or a lack of visual/auditory acuity, are routine grounds for denying applicants admission. While their unflattering methods and stringent regulations may seem harsh or even unnecessary, they are deeply rooted in scientific observation – psychological precursors and suppressed deviant behaviors – forged by centuries of military training and global conflict. Maintaining a modern army is far more of an applied science focused on cultivating a productive environment…definable roles, unwavering discipline, steadfast resolve and group morale…in lieu of entertaining a social experiment designed to stretch the whimsical boundaries of gender identification.
So what do my boring textbook affirmations have to do with Trump’s “discriminatory” transgender ban? Everything. Supporting one’s right to be gay, a private matter and sexual orientation, is by no means the equivalent of indulging a recruit’s fantasy to live as the opposite sex; a psychological disorder known as gender dysphoria and recognized by both academia and the medical community. While I highly commend anyone’s willingness to serve their country, a truly honorable endeavor, that selfless commitment must respect the privacy/safety of other soldiers and abide by universal gender norms. Wearing a dress no more grants one the unabridged right to shower and bunk with actual women, than it affords a man a special accommodation to wear female attire or present himself as a woman among a male company of servicemen. It’s not a matter of tolerance; it’s a matter of functionality.
If enlisting is truly paramount to your beliefs, distinguishing yourself according to your actions instead of merely collecting a check and free government healthcare for a complimentary sex change, who in their right mind would confuse their wardrobe with their career? Considering recruits must bunk with the same sex and wear the same standard issued clothes regardless, what is the purpose of declaring your imaginary gender except to bring undue attention to yourself or seek special treatment? On the binary battlefield of life or death, whether pulling a trigger or residing in its cross-hairs of denial, any issue that distracts from your mission and threatens your camaraderie is but another senseless casualty of the progressive culture war on common sense. “Transgenderism”, which provides the perfect vessel for political terrorists to further erode self-evident truths and societal values, is far more of an adopted coping mechanism to physically accommodate one’s sexual orientation than a gross violation of civil rights; i.e., a gay man attempting to become a woman or a masculine lesbian identifying as a man to consciously compliment her more feminine or submissive girlfriend.
Before the Obama administration rejoiced in mocking our military and societal values, the U.S. Armed Services, like a majority of reasonable Americans, only recognized two God-given genders; that genetic dichotomy defining every human being’s anatomical birth. (And please spare me those rare genetic mutations and birth defects contrarians invoke as irrefutable proof of gender fluidity) These military institutions do not believe bathrooms or gender exclusive units are a matter of personal preference and wishful thinking. Being denied a locker room of your choice or entrance into a military branch hardly constitutes discrimination simply because you refuse to accept reality by acknowledging the tangible genitalia of your natural born sex. That is your failing alone. Likewise, any attempt to link the historical fight for racial equality or women’s rights with this campaign to secure transgender privilege is a callous and ignorant disregard for the millions who suffered under a sordid legacy of oppression, human servitude and bigotry. Could a runaway slave magically change the color of his skin to evade his captors any more than a mother could alter her anatomy to cast a vote in 1919, avoid sex trafficking in Asia or become a Catholic priest? Nor should they have too. There’s a stark contrast between the systemic persecution of one’s biological heritage, an involuntary target of circumstance, and decrying the uncooperative consequences of one’s actions or blatant lack of accountability.
While I do not deny the transgender community endures ridicule and hate, often stemming from their insistence to demand acceptance, supporting one’s conscious decision to identify as “transgender” does not transform his or her true identity. Asking society to forgo verifiable truths, those natural constructs of gender delineation used to identify our strengths and weaknesses or ensure your safety, is as absurd as calling your poodle a cold-blooded invertebrate because it likes to drink from the toilet. Honestly, how long will it be before uncooperative bystanders are reprimanded, expelled, fired or sued for not entertaining the gender delusions or advances of their peers? Enjoying the individual freedom to pose as the opposite sex, for better or worse, does not change your gender, suddenly invalidate the legitimacy of public standards or displace your neighbor’s right to reject your lifestyle without reason or explanation.
Conspiring to make the world “gender neutral” will not end discrimination, save more lives or heal the planet by placing our cognitive abilities in a plastic bubble of “unoffensive” ambiguity. And it definitely won’t improve the mental health and emotional stability of our youth – those impressionable minds now being conditioned by schools and pop culture to question or reject their natural gender while attempting to overcome the everyday challenges of adolescence. Teaching our sons and daughters to appreciate their innate differences and symbiotic connection is not regressive; it’s indigenous to our survival and evolutionary proliferation as a sentient species. Nevertheless, a biological woman or man can still play sports, fire a gun, open a boutique and love the gender of his or her choosing without regret. However, breaking barriers solely for the spiteful sake of eradicating biological order or any remaining sense of basic decency is about as logical as a man who identifies as a pregnant mother attempting to publicly breastfeed his own baby to protest gender bias; excluding those cute little pink or blue blue booties of course. The more the rational world accommodates this destructive nonsense, the more future generations will be unable to distinguish the most elementary truths or God forbid complete the simplest tasks without having to first visit the Island of Misfit Toys in hopes of saving the malformed appendages of gender fascist capitalists.
The difference between a privilege and a right is that neither you nor I can dictate the terms of our desired acceptance. The same LGBT activists demanding political concessions to appease a blissful state of mind, are also oblivious to the fact “old, sexist” generals originally spurned women in combat roles because studies confirmed their male counterparts became psychologically distraught by the mere site of their deaths and needlessly lingered over their dismembered bodies. Should I even mention the exponentially higher risk of rape at the hands of enemy combatants, including the increased incidents of abuse, fights or operational dysfunction among transgender integrated troops? Contrary to the victimization propaganda of science fiction fans, not every pragmatic decision requires a politically correct pronoun to appease any one of the approximately 58 genders now claiming dominion over the human anatomy and the social gentrification of modern warfare. It merely requires a sensible leader willing to understand the mental manifestation of transgenderism, an aesthetic desire for sexual transfiguration, does not supersede biology or negate the necessity of maintaining gender norms in the private barracks and front lines of national security.
Ever since the orchestrated hysteria over Russia collusion and electoral interference emerged as a marketable excuse to better contextualize Hillary’s loss, one thing is for certain: the liberal media and Democratic hierarchy are irrevocably invested in the mere suggestion, dare I say the indictable hope, of conspiracy and scandal. In fact, by pushing all their collective chips to the center of the political poker table, it’s clear many progressives believe this is their last, best chance to undermine Donald Trump’s reforms, but more profoundly to derail his re-election chances. The problem with playing Orwellian roulette is you must either push a known lie to the proverbial edge of the cliff, thus potentially implicating and destroying yourself, or you must relinquish your remaining political capital to your opponent who subsequently sits that much higher on the throne of public perception. As long as those bitter, conniving voices occupying the Halls of our Forefathers increasingly view public service as a vindictive game of selfish recompense rather than a solemn duty to preserve our founding values and the symbolic pinnacle of intellectual discourse, the results will mirror the malevolent nature of their despotic intent.
If Russia is now the eye of the political hurricane, Robert Mueller is undoubtedly the surly dealer with a score to settle for either partisan or posterity’s sake. No matter what his true intentions or how much he tilts the odds in favor of his true allegiance, albeit for the integrity of truth or to feed personal distaste, there are basically two likely outcomes. One, he admits there is no tangible proof of Russian Collusion, i.e., a smoking gun, and concludes the Trump campaign made some questionable but innocuous contacts without any criminal intent or obvious wrongdoing. Or two, despite possessing no damning evidence of real conspiracy linking the President directly to punishable misconduct, Mueller opts for the theatricality of implied guilt by weaving every coincidence, chopped communication and circumstantial crumb into some passable pattern of misbehavior solely to support the media narrative of “probable” collusion and a complicit subversion of the Democratic process; something the DNC, Bernie Sanders and their marginalized primary voters know all too well.
Regardless of his final conclusions, I’m of the humble opinion Mr. Mueller is grasping at straws, questioning anything that moves or anyone who has ever mentioned “Russia”, because a house of cards cannot withstand the faintest whisper of its own hypocrisy. Any career disciple of “Fidelity, Bravery and Integrity” who intentionally stacks the deck with Democratic lawyers and Clinton donors is either foolishly hostile to the concept of “objectivity”, has no discernible regard for his own reputation and due process, or he is smugly trying to solicit a rash response from a known impulsive leader who will not hesitate to tweet at three in the morning. In other words, if Trump fires Mueller and his “Ides of November” assassins – a justifiable course of action being both James Comey and the former Head of Homeland Security testified there was no evidence of collusion – every liberal politician and media pundit would interpret such a move as a glaring admission of guilt; a desperate attempt to avoid prosecution and the impending humiliation of impeachment. When the judicial adage “beyond a reasonable doubt” is far too stringent for the foaming lynch mob, the court of public opinion requires no such logical restraints. And to think documented perjury, obstruction of justice and a little blue dress autographed by DNA in the Oval Office were by no means worthy of Presidential disbarment.
Buried beneath the media’s endless minefield of accusations lies perhaps the most disturbing and disregarded revelation of them all. Almost every misreported meeting, misconstrued conversation and twisted detail used to the slander President, his family and his cabinet, was gleamed from Barack Obama and Susan Rice illegally wiretapping his campaign, his presidency, and through the premeditated leaks of remaining loyalists. Yes, all egregious crimes. Likewise, it’s also painfully obvious Natalia Veselnitskaya was a private Russian citizen, not a Russian government agent, when she sought a meeting with Donald Trump Jr. under false pretenses or when the Obama administration gave her a Disney Express Visa Pass into the epicenter of our government; thus allowing party constituents to fortuitously dust her off when needed as a prop to insinuate a massive cover-up of alleged treasonous activity.
Maybe my recollection of “collusion” or “election interference” is a bit hazy but it doesn’t take a private investigator or a political scientist to realize the possibility of a Trump presidency caused widespread panic within the Washington establishment and a fair amount of doomsday planning. Then again, when your vacationing conscience forgets plotting and spending millions to taint the legitimacy of Israeli elections, flying in unvetted refugees or encouraging mass illegal immigration to tip America’s electoral scales and incite a seditious culture war, you’re hardly an innocent bystander or a traumatized victim of Russian deception after claiming “more flexibility” to willingly collude with our supposed enemy after your re-election. The same raucous media inquisition designed to invalidate an election result by condemning Donald Trump over mere wishful thinking, despite his unrivaled transparency, religiously ignored much more nefarious and substantiated charges levied against his obstinate predecessor. Apparently advocacy and accountability are now entirely symbiotic in the moonlit studios of political prostitutes.
While I typically digress to more private means of communication, especially in the poisonous vacuum of political theater, Donald Trump is understandably upset for being incessantly persecuted by the same toxic sewer he adamantly campaigned against simply because his Attorney General needlessly recused himself from debunking the left’s syndicated Russian hoax. To make matters worse, Robert Mueller – a known progressive confidant and personal friend of Comey who partook in Hillary’s notorious Uranium deal – has hired an investigatory team almost solely comprised of Clinton cronies, Democratic donors and the rabid anti-Trump “resistance”; all dedicated to maintaining the control of the corrupt establishment at all costs. And yet no matter how much progress the President has procured in strengthening the economy, cutting fiscal waste, curbing illegal immigration and negating the destructive regulations and executive orders of his predecessor, his success has been obstructed by the endless media circus that has ensued and the unforgivable fact the GOP has repeatedly empowered his enemies while Hillary and Obama have yet to be held accountable, dare I say earnestly investigated, for a laundry list of clearly illicit activities and treasonous foreign collusion.
Whereas Donald Trump Jr. and Jared Kushner have freely testified before Congress and shared all relevant information regarding their private interactions, Susan Rice refused to testify (i.e., incriminate herself) and Hillary Clinton has been pardoned by the 95% liberal mainstream press – the so-called principled lynch mob – despite deleting 33,000 emails, bleaching hard drives and ordering her subordinates to destroy their phones and laptops because she obviously did absolutely nothing wrong. The hypocrisy is so undeniable, so unbearably insane, I too would question any decision or misstep that allowed such hypocrisy to fester and threaten the future of my family. Although I do respect and commend Mr. Sessions for his relentless efforts in exposing pedophile rings, human trafficking and banking corruption, none of these illegalities threaten the legitimacy of Trump’s presidency, the integrity of our elections, or the concept of due process as much as this partisan mockery of justice currently infecting Washington’s corridors. You cannot embody the fight against injustice by consciously sidestepping real impropriety for the sake of avoiding public outcry or the inherent challenges of prosecution; you must unravel every instance of its embodiment with equal discernment and conviction.
As one of the most successful and misunderstood CEO’s in American history, Donald Trump does not confuse “results”, expectations, with “loyalty” or friendship. Why? A man’s livelihood, his legacy and the indelible promise he made to voters to reclaim a country’s abandoned founding charter, extends far beyond common pleasantries and the convenience of company. It resides in one’s capacity to lead without fear of ridicule or reservation; even when wrong or seemingly inconsiderate. Although I fully respect Jeff Sessions and believe he is fully capable of restoring the rule of law and draining the swamp, only one man is ultimately responsible for his triumphs and failures. Whether or not I agree with Trump’s tactics or timing is moot, for tough love, the unapologetic art of survival, rarely seeks permission in the political arena of tireless predators.
Do I have a problem with the modern feminist movement? Hmm, that depends if that’s a multiple choice question! Before feminism was hijacked by militant activists such as Code Pink, and yes, even the heralded NOW, it was designed to empower, support, and defend the rights of women regardless of their personal lives and affiliations. Now, no pun intended, it is a twisted political platform that discriminates against women who don’t adhere to a malformed stereotype of what progressives deem as worthy of their ‘cause’. Today’s feminist cults pick and choose whom they defend, they maliciously incite discord and tarnish lives with imagined slights – i.e., Gloria Allred’s political theater of phallic defamation – and anything overtly masculine/paternal is labeled as misogynistic and a palpable threat to their esoteric vision of an “evolved” society. In other words, these radical feminists are hopelessly insecure, biased, and extremely vindictive when they cannot discount or emasculate the traditional male role model into a submissive tool of political servitude. For some unresolved childhood issue, perhaps their socialist dream of secular serfdom put to show tunes, it makes them feel better about themselves and the Boy Scouts!
Unfortunately for country music and the “XY” chromosome, the strong jaw, blue collar, gun-owning, meat-eating, God-fearing, flag-saluting silhouette of manhood is now classified as a predator to women everywhere; regardless whether “said man” is a good father, treats women with the utmost respect, and leads a moral life. The reality such misguided activism places effeminate, emasculated males on a pedestal of exceptionalism and enlightenment – because it’s least offensive to their frail sensibilities and innate to their “gender simplification” mantra – begs to the exact degree of their sexual neurosis. I believe Mr. Freud called it penis envy, or more profoundly, jealously without snow tires. A true woman requires no such infantile generalizations for she is fully content in whom she is, confident in what she can achieve, and seeks only to be judged according to her actions; that is, equal opportunity does not necessarily dictate equal outcomes or demand profane displays of juvenile rage whenever life’s inevitable struggles ensue. Dying your armpit hair, refusing to bathe or reducing your self worth to objectifying your vagina doesn’t empower generations of impressionable young girls, it repels the civilized world. Our innate biological differences are not our weakness, a bitter platform of insecurity from which to discriminate or breed discontent. They are natural gifts, blessed with unique attributes and God-given strengths, designed to foster symbiotic relationships that compliment both genders for the benefit of all humanity.
So, do I have a problem with feminism? Hmm…I have a problem with the validity and intelligence of any movement that happily allows Sarah Palin to be called a slut, the hopeful victim of a rape, because her detractors – most notably the liberal media – would rather disparage her as a conservative woman, her right to express herself in a land predicated upon liberty, than simply refute the factual strength of her argument. (Yes, slander is the tool of the defeated) I have a problem with anyone who demeans a woman for staying at home to personally raise her children and maintain her household, rather than seek out a professional career of advancement and accolades. As a true believer in equality, I always assumed both were highly commendable and solely a woman’s choice. Obviously, I’m wrong.
I reject any bankrupt ideology that judges the worthiness of a woman’s plight according to her sexuality, gender, wealth, race, religion or whether she believes in abortion or not, rather than recognizing her as a sentient being blessed with certain unalienable rights. And last but never least, I detest any hypocrite or fascist faction that finds it necessary to discriminate against and belittle men, individuals worthy of respect until proven otherwise, in order to justify the type of unapologetic sexism some women are tragically fighting. True men, not the extreme cases of misbehavior used to objectify our entire gender and ignite political firestorms of opportunism, see themselves and the struggle for gender equality through the eyes of their sisters, wives, daughters, and mothers. It’s called empathy, objectivity, humanity. No political affiliation or gender bias is necessary or required!
There is the foul stench of political desperation, and there is the echo of fumbling footsteps loitering in their own delusional waste. In the curious case of the American media chasing yet another Red Herring, it’s hard not to pin the tail on the drunk donkey wearing a Ushanka while selling party favors in Red Square. In other words, if you can’t defeat a politically incorrect capitalist with a bad comb-over who suplexed your credibility on the wrestling mat of social media, blaming a hated political rival for the identical crimes committed by your absolved constituents, why not besmirch the prodigal son who bears his very name but never ran for public office?
Not to burst the 99 balloons of Russian roulette, exactly what law did Donald Trump Jr. break; regardless of his intent or status as a private citizen? It’s well known English publicist Rob Goldstone initiated contact on behalf of Russian attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya, she recently admitted to not possessing or passing any notable information during their meeting despite misreported claims of damning revelations, and the President’s son freely and adamantly released all records of their so-called “scandalous” correspondence. Hmm, color me cognizant of the difference between Caviar and fish sticks, but this woman sounds far more like a political plant, a wealthy sycophant and convincing decoy used to imply misconduct, than a rogue character assassin conspiring to conquer the world with a married man from New York who religiously takes selfies with his kids in his waders.
And yet every election season, with little to no criticism or ethical standards, the DNC hires an army of lawyers and private investigators to find any crumb of usable intelligence to slander Republican candidates into submission. Not that Herman Cain would or Gloria Allred would digress! After all, just because the Clinton campaign initiated a quid-pro-quo rendezvous with Ukrainian officials last year to discuss trading Trump’s dirty laundry for possible future political concessions, or Ted Kennedy begged a Russian diplomat to defeat Reagan by directly interfering with the integrity of our elections, there’s no need for mass hysterics over real collusion and unpunished treason. Naturally the liberal press rarely mentions such shameless behavior because they’re the DNC’s proud propaganda pimps pushing an endless array of salacious narratives with zero discernible proof. Considering the Clinton’s longtime ties with the Kremlin, Uranium One and Moscow banks like Renaissance Capital sponsoring $500,000 speeches – yes, no foreign government is more acutely aware of Bill and Hillary’s sordid past and shoddy dealings than Russia – you would be a fool not to exhaust all leads blatantly ignored by the mainstream media when the most corrupt and dishonest candidate in our nation’s history was mere months away from permanently liquidating the American dream.
This entire, nonstop Russian conspiracy fiasco is but an absurd microcosm of how desperate the Fourth Estate has become to deflect from Trump’s growing list of successes and thus derail his extensive reforms loosening the grip of the Washington establishment. If anybody needs to be investigated for consciously colluding with Russia, China, Europe and the Middle East, for intentionally demonizing America’s heritage and values at every conceivable opportunity, it’s Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. Does anyone honestly believe the $100 trillion dollar Paris climate agreement was actually about addressing global temperatures – a proposed scant reduction of .3 degrees by 2100 when solar activity alone can account for such variation in a single year alone – in lieu of perpetrating a globalist Ponzi scheme clearly designed to redistribute America’s wealth, sovereignty and historical influence? Why was Iran, a radical Islamic regime and sponsor of jihad against the West given permission to “eventually” build nuclear weapons, with almost no enforceable oversight, let alone made the beneficiary of a 400 million dollar ransom payment made out to “sorry”? Did Valerie Jarrett, a self-admitted anti-American Marxist, not possess ties to both Iran and the Muslim Brotherhood while serving as Obama’s most trusted adviser in the pinnacle of our government? Apparently not.
Unfortunately for “We the Pawns” of public perception, the media isn’t interested in ascertainable truth, exposing real impropriety through objective research, merely fabricating false appearances to incite further societal division and discord for the explicit purpose of destroying the President and his family by any means necessary. And to think Seth Rich’s death – a DNC operative gunned down outside his home in our nation’s capital – generated far less genuine concern or moral outrage than a completely legal and fully justifiable series of communications regarding one Hillary Rodham Clinton; a notorious lifelong politician and reckless reprobate whose name is synonymous with pathological deceit, inappropriate associations and personally profiteering from foreign dissent. It’s a tragic failing of journalism, our national ethos, when an unsolved, cold-blooded murder of a young man “resisting” rigged primaries, or God forbid a presidential nominee using her own “charitable” foundation as a campaign slush fund to defraud disaster relief victims in Haiti or for accepting “pay-to-play” bribes from foreign governments, doesn’t quite equate to the delusions of rabid partisans obsessed with chasing a figment of their imagination by ‘wagging the dog’ of implied indiscretion. Although there are no doggy bags big enough to dispose of the incalculable intellectual waste produced by the proud lapdogs of the progressive state, for the first time in modern history a man has dared to stick their collective noses in it. And the smell is glorious!
Deport all police officers in lieu of those illegals who have criminal records, gang affiliations and are receiving public benefits at taxpayer expense? Sure, George Lopez, and turn America into the same destitute, lawless abyss known as Mexico; that corrupt cesspool of disrepair millions are fleeing for any semblance of a normal life? No, thanks! Don’t blame us because your ancestral homeland is incompetent and struggles to provide basic sanitation and a high school education, let alone passable drinking water. Rather than criticizing our laws, mocking our servicemen and women who put themselves in harm’s way each and every day, you should be grateful centuries of immigrants have benefited from the unique opportunities, abundant liberties and revered quality of life America affords.
For those who actually honor and welcome the privilege of becoming a U.S citizen, I have one suggestion: fill out the damn paperwork before crossing an internationally recognized border of a sovereign country. Millions have done it, millions more have foolishly refused or abstained. It’s a not a racist conspiracy, nor rocket science, but a universal necessity designed to ensure the security of any civilized nation and the safety, economic efficacy, of her citizens. Of course that would require common sense, the faintest hint of humility and an ounce of respect for those American lives and livelihoods outside of Hollywood’s self-indulgent bubble. And apparently you have none. If your blind pride and myopic political beliefs are immune to the “racist” concept of accountability, perhaps you should start a petition to ‘Make Mexico Spain Again’ before surrendering your identity and the keys to your lavishly, secluded home. At least then the joke would be on you and no “foreign” citizen would ever be denied the right to vote for a government that doesn’t expect its neighbor to pay for their 200 year-old bar tab. Until that improbable and refreshingly sober day, please remind all visitors to kindly knock before permanently entering.
If anyone needs a psychological exam, Maxine, I suggest testing the mental health of the man who has been stalking Donald Trump around the globe and operating under the delusion he is still president: one Barack Hussein Obama. The very same megalomaniac who became the first American leader to wiretap a Presidential candidate and his newly selected administration, also empowered his remaining staff within the Executive branch to leak classified information with no regard for national security. As for Mrs. Waters, she proved long ago that psychological distress and progressivism are one in the same by asking why the CIA only sells Crack in black neighborhoods. Hmm, forgive my Johnny Cash but my guess is because the “CIA” was purposely placed and misspelled on speed dial to better patronize, dare I say victimize, all those non-white voters illegally profiled and bribed with free Obama phones at taxpayer expense. Or, in your own words, did I just pull a “360” on you, Congresswoman? Apparently mathematics, just like “the truth”, isn’t your friend either.
