Earlier this week I was on the Jesse Lee Peterson show out of LA.
It was a short segment early in the morning and we briefly discussed the NFL kneelers. I spoke about how they offended the fans, the veterans, and US history in general. I pointed out that black Americans have just as much stake and heritage in this country as anyone else. The first person to die in the Revolutionary War was Crispus Attucks, a black man. There were black Minute Men. I mentioned Andrew Jackson and the black battalion that was vital in defeating the the British in the Battle of New Orleans.
Peterson had one call for me—a woman who angrily denounced Andrew Jackson and how those slaves were forced to fight. I was taken aback by this, because those men were heroes and veterans to be honored regardless of slavery. Shamefully, some of those men did not get their freedom, but it does not take away from the fact that they put their lives on the line for their country. I might have added that nearly 600,000 ‘privileged’ white men died in the Civil War to end slavery.
The kneelers seem to have forgotten that.
Increasingly our country is divided. Civility is being replaced by name calling–and even violence. People want others with whom they disagree to lose their jobs. Accusations of sexual impropriety are widespread. Censorship is being implemented by the tech left. Rational debate is replaced by name calling and fear. Racial hatred is very real and always has been, but it seems worse nowadays—and our first ‘black’ president, Obama, actually set back race
relations. Too many people now hate our country, our history and our culture.
What is that culture? For most of our history it has been predominately European and Christian. For years we’ve had a huge influx of immigrants ‘of color’ who have a lot of children. White people will soon be a minority in the USA. There are some on the alt right calling for the protection of whites by means identity politics and segregation. Many black nationalists also want the return of segregation, after they fought so hard against it. Muslims naturally segregate themselves and demand special food, special treatment, and Sharia Law, which is completely at odds with our Constitution. The rich are getting stupendously richer and segregate themselves in gated communities. Three men in America now control more wealth than the bottom half of the US population.
Immigrants, illegal and otherwise, are now encouraged to keep their own cultures and languages. Some consider the traditional melting pot to be offensive—they say it’s ‘racist’ and ‘nativist.’ The end game of that kind of thinking will be the proliferation of ‘no go’ Balkanized zones in the United States.
Trump’s brand of nationalism may be the glue needed to keep our country together. At least for a while longer.
Judge Roy Moore, a Republican candidate for the Senate, has been the target of sexual misconduct allegations. As a result, many establishment Republicans are trying to block his nomination—even though all the allegations and ‘evidence’ have been revealed to be bogus.
These establishment Republicans include Mitch McConnell, Mitt Romney and John McCain. They are all part of the Deep State swamp and they’re determined to thwart President Trump’s agenda.
They were happy to tell us they were going to expel a potential Senator because of sexual assault allegations made right before an election. These same Deep State Senators stay silent when picture evidence emerges against a sitting Democrat Senator Franken emerges.
Powerful men continue to be drawn into the morass of shame that is the ‘Sex Scandal Swamp' including...
• Al Franken who now has more women coming forward with new sexual allegations.
• Bill Clinton is facing another lawsuit from women he is alleged to have abused. The former president has a history of rich payouts to his victims and even had an official “ Bimbo Eruption” squad created to pay off or destroy his many accusers.
• John Conyers used taxpayer money to fly in women for his hotel trysts. Some Congressmen may have settled sexual harassment cases. If they used taxpayer money to do it, they need to go to jail.
Not all accusations should be believed. “The Rolling Stone” published a story about rape on campus based on one woman’s tale. It was completely false and they famously published a retraction.
The accusations against Judge Moore also hold no water. The sexual assault claims against Trump were proved over and over to be bogus, but the legacy media enjoys calling him an abuser regardless. Judge Moore is in a similar situation. That is, it’s all about hardball politics, not sexual impropriety.
He’s doing well to fight the charges and voters will see them for what they are—baseless.
I tip my cowboy hat to Judge Moore for fighting back against the horrendous lies.
So today Al Franken admits he groped Leanne Tweeden.
Tweeden wrote “You forcibly kissed me without my consent, grabbed my breasts while I was sleeping and had someone take a photo of you doing it, knowing I would see it later and be ashamed.”
The virtue signaling of these hypocrites is beyond the pale.
Last month, as sexual assault accusations began to mount against Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein, Franken took to Facebook to applaud the bravery of the women who shared their stories.
“It takes a lot of courage to come forward, and we owe them our thanks,” he wrote. “And as we hear more and more about Mr. Weinstein, it’s important to remember that while his behavior was appalling, it’s far too common.”
Agreed. Franken apparently knew it was far too common from his own first hand(s) experience harassing Tweeden.
Yet, the Double standard Dems and RINOS circle the wagons on their own. While Roy Moore is told by Mitch McConnel to drop out and drop dead.
Meanwhile, Franken gets a wrist slap and protection from the establishment cronies.
