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.
Facebook, Amazon, Google, and Apple Shut Down Conservatives
Big Tech is waging war against conservatives. After the 2016 election, they are even more determined to go all in and censor free speech. Or at least speech that does not support their leftist ideology.
Here's some examples summarized from American Greatness online.
• Google announced it would partner with George Soros-backed Poytner Institute to "fact check" search functions. So now, Soros will be the arbiter of truth in search.
• Amazon admitted to removing negative reviews of Hillary Clinton's book.
• Apple removes pro-life prayer app from App store because the left wing complained
• Facebook employees admitted they were instructed to remove positive news stores that were trending about conservatives
And that does not even cover the shennigans going on at YouTube by their Big G overlords. Conservative voices are being shut down.
It is time for Congress to act to protect the First Amendment and the values fundamental to the republic.
Trump has shaken up establishment politics more than anyone in my lifetime. But he also needs to go beyond building a wall and bringing back jobs. Crimes of the elites like Hildebeast, Deep State cronies, and global banksters are due to be brought out into the light.
Halloween is upon us once again and GrrrGraphics.com is flaunting the haunting! Our annual cartoon offers a potpourri of twits and treats. It features creepy characters such as a McCain-o-Lantern and Obama as a happy undertaker. He enjoys dancing on a grave of deeply buried virtues. Obama’s evil jig of socialism could summon the spirit of Karl Marx himself.
Hillary is cackling, bats are battering, and the ghouls are ghouling. Elizabeth Warren violates SJW sensibilities by dressing up as an Indian. “Poca-haunt-us” has a lot of nerve! She’s attracted the lascivious attention of Bill “Bare Bones” Clinton.
And what would Halloween be without Frankenstein? Yes, the monster is here in all his and her glory. Frankenstein would make a great name for a presidential bid! And the trans-gender angle would appeal to the confused Democrats who have trouble differentiating the little boys room from the little girls.
Nancy Pelosi forgot to put in her brain. Robert Mueller continues to slither about in and bites Manafort with an indictment for FARA violations from 2006-2015 while the real shoeless criminal goes free.
George Soros is a spider who uses his money to weave a dark web of globalism. It’s not all about politics, either. We also feature that debonair ladies’ man himself: Hollywood Harvey Weinstein as the Wolf Man.
Last, and least…Frederica Wilson comes as herself. An “empty barrel” of Halloween fun.
