THE BLAME AMERICA FIRST CROWD IS ALIVE AND WELL

The following meme by a group entitled “The Other 98 Percent,”  obvious blame America First liberals has been making the rounds on Facebook.

When people say, “let’s make America great again,” what period of American history are they talking about? When we were a British colony with unfair taxes? When we enacted a genocide to seize control of land? When we hung women because we thought they were witches? When we practiced slavery? When women and minorities couldn’t vote? When we ignored the Holocaust? When we dropped two atomic bombs on Japan? When we interned Japanese-American citizens in camps? When we sent thousands of our men to Vietnam to fight and die under false pretenses? Or when we did the same in Iraq 12 years ago and are still doing today? What kind of America do you foresee us returning to when you say that exactly?

When I saw it on my news feed, I responded with today’s problems as follows:

First of all, our economy/GDP is only growing at a rate of 2%. High taxes, draconian regulations, skyrocketing health care costs, an out of control national debt, etc. are to blame. Lowering taxes for everyone, lifting burdensome regulations, and repealing Obamacare will go a long way in growing our economy, creating jobs, and paying off the national debt.

Illegal immigrants, including thousands of Muslims whose intent is to kill Americans, are pouring into this country. This has got to stop.

Our foreign policy is a joke. We’ve turned our backs on our allies, including our biggest ally in the Middle East, Israel. We’re now making nice with radical Muslims and Communist dictators. We entered into a nuclear agreement with Iran, the number one state sponsor of terrorism. Iran is already defying that agreement and plans to build nuclear weapons to use on us. ISIS and other terrorist organizations are growing by leaps and bounds. And while Islamic terrorism is the number one threat to this country, the current president won’t even say the words, “Islamic terrorism.”

When a deranged individual who breaks into a church and shoots innocent people is seen in a photograph on social media with a confederate flag, this administration including the current president indicates that anyone who displays or owns a confederate flag is a hater, racist, etc. However, this current president continually lectures the American people to not judge all Muslims by the actions of a few.

Even though the terrorist attack/shooting in San Bernardino was carried out by Muslims who had acquired their guns illegally, this administration chooses to advocate stricter gun control laws instead of going after ISIS and other Islamic terrorist organizations.

Political correctness has run amok, and race relations are at one of their lowest points since Civil Rights legislation was passed in the sixties. It is my hope that the next president will act on all of the things I’ve illustrated above plus others. Since its inception almost 250 years ago, America has seen its good times and its bad times. Furthermore, that has not been one day in the history of this country where things were perfect and there won’t be such a day until Jesus returns to earth and sets up his kingdom for 1000 years. While I think back fondly to the 80s, 90s (even though I despise Bill Clinton), and early 2,000s, I don’t want to go back there. Even if the presidential candidate I’m supporting does get elected, I’m not going to get everything I want. No one is. This country is presently in the worst shape that it’s ever been in my lifetime. I just hope it’s not too late to turn things around.

**********

“The Other 98 percent” is obviously part of the blame America first crowd. As you can see, he or she cites the following things wrong with America

  • Unfair taxes when we were a British Colony
  • Enacting genocide to seize control of land
  • Hanging women who were thought to be witches
  • Slavery
  • Not allowing women and minorities to vote
  • Ignoring the holocaust
  • Dropping atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki
  • Rounding up Japanese Americans and placing them in camps
  • Sending thousands to Viet Nam to fight under false pretenses
  • Sending thousands to Iraq to fight under false pretenses

Unfair taxes when we were still under British rule? Duh! For the second point, I’m sure “Other 98” is referring to the “white guys” taking away the Indians’ land. If the “white guys” had not come to America, none of us would be in America. Furthermore, we’d probably be living in an oppressed society. The witch trials and hangings were put to a stop. Slavery ended. Women and minorities were given the right to vote. Not recognizing the holocaust was a mistake, but just who was it that invaded France, took that country back and liberated Europe? Dropping the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki won the war, a war that we didn’t start. Even though we didn’t have a clearly defined purpose in Viet Nam, we were fighting the spread of communism. It was the liberals in Congress who defunded the war, a war we could have won. One of the platforms of the Clinton administration when President Bill Clinton left office was regime change in Iraq. All intelligence available to both Congress and the administration indicated that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction. President Bush went to Congress for approval and many Democrats including Hillary Clinton and John Kerry voted to go to war.

It’s funny how “Other 98” cites the above, but fails to mention that the United States liberated France and other European countries from Nazi rule in World War II. “Other 98” also never mentions the billions of dollars in aid that the United States gives to foreign countries. Nor is the liberation of Kuwait from Sadaam Hussein. Furthermore, the Americans captured Sadaam Hussein and subsequently executed him for war crimes. He was considered the Adolph Hitler of the late 20th/early 21st century. The Americans also captured Osama Bin Laden, the master mind of the 9/11 attacks.

Among the many things that sets the United States of America apart from the rest, is that we willingly right our wrongs and have systems in place by which we can right our wrongs.

We ended slavery and instituted Civil Rights legislation. Women and minorities were given the right to vote. In the United States of America, people are given the freedom to experience the American dream. Americans also have the right to practice their chosen religion or to not practice any religion. While this nation was founded on Judeo-Christian principles, its citizens are free to worship as they please or not worship at all.

“Other 98” is obviously an Obama supporter, and is attempting to diminish the problems our nation is facing as a result of this far left administration by feebly pointing out a few of America’s dark hours. It’s not going to work.

GOTTA LOVE THE TOLERANT LEFT

One of my favorite topics to write about is the tolerant left, which we know is anything but. With a presidential election months away and a socialist/communist the presumptive Democrat nominee, educating voters is of utmost importance. The following not only illustrates liberal lies, but left’s intolerance of differing points of view and its overall dis- ingenuousness.

The following meme has made rounds on Facebook. “When a faithfully married black president who was the son of a single mother, the first black editor of the Harvard Law Review and a professor of constitutional law is considered unintelligent, immoral, and anti-American by the right while a xenophobic, misogynistic, serially philandering trust fund kid who quotes from the National Enquirer, peddles conspiracy theories, routinely calls women ugly and fat, calls McCain a loser for having been a prisoner of war, and who has advocated torture and the bombing of women and children has captured the hearts of a majority of Republicans. This is white supremacy folks. Plain and simple.

When this meme showed up on my news feed, I replied as follows. “Every president in my life time, and I’m sure every president back to George Washington has been accused of being unintelligent (dumb, a moron, etc.), immoral, and anti-American by his opponents. Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush probably took the most criticism of any two presidents in recent history. Like most Republicans, I have issues with Trump. He certainly was not my first choice for nominee, but I will vote for him. Some of the things Trump’s being accused of in this meme are questionable or flat-out lies. And I won’t get into that now. But how anyone can relate this to racism/white supremacy is beyond me. But it has been my observation that liberals amend the definition of racism to mean anything they don’t like.”

Like I said above, Donald Trump was not my first choice for Republican nominee for president, but I’m going with him because a Hillary Clinton presidency will mean the end of the United States of America as we know it. I do have issues with Donald Trump and felt that his comment about Senator John McCain was out of line and totally uncalled for.

The meme also indicated that Donald Trump was, among other things, xenophobic and misogynistic. I don’t know about the origin of these terms, but I had never heard these terms used until a year or two ago. According to Merriam-Webster, xenophobic means fear of hatred of strangers or foreigners, and misogynistic means, according to vocabulary.com, fear and distrust of women. As an international business man, I can’t possibly believe that Trump is scared of foreigners. I would have to guess that the tolerant left is labeling him xenophobic because he has pledged to stop the influx of illegal immigrants into our country. Again, that is no indication that he is xenophobic. As far as Trump being misogynistic is concerned. He is a successful business man and I have no doubt that he’s able to “get women.” However, there are women who have worked for him who have indicated that he was a great person and boss. His first wife had said some nasty things about him, but later indicated that these comments were made during their divorce, and she has nothing but admiration for him now. While there might be some problems between Donald Trump and individual women, this most certainly does not indicate that he hates of distrusts women. I thought the tolerant left was supposed to be open-minded, giving everyone the benefit of the doubt.

Next, the meme calls the presumptive Republican nominee a “serially philandering trust fund kid.” According to Slate.com, a far left website, Trump inherited 40 million from his father. Slate further states, “Throughout his career he has been a real estate developer and manager, a builder of golf courses, a casino magnate, a reality TV host, a celebrity who slaps his name on assorted buildings for a fee, a hawker of power ties, and much more. This cuts against the idea that he is merely a glorified trust-fund kid: Rather than sit on his wealth while someone else saw to its care, he decided to jump into a number of highly entertaining, risky, and at times ill-advised business ventures, which have collectively turned him into an international celebrity. He took risks with the money he was given, and they seem to have paid off over time, both financially and personally. Meanwhile, Trump runs a company with thousands of employees. Whatever wealth he has created for himself, the total value that his company has created over the years is probably far greater.” So, he has created thousands of jobs and many, many people have gotten rich because of Donald Trump. But wait! The tolerant left doesn’t like rich people or people who are doing reasonably well and don’t have to depend on the government. They’re obviously unhappy with the opportunities Donald Trump has created because he has kept people from becoming dependent on the government. Perhaps many of Trump’s employees vote Republican.

And speaking of “philandering trust fund kids.” Wasn’t one of the left’s most esteemed icons, Edward Moore Kennedy, a “philandering trust fund kid?” How many jobs and how much wealth did Teddy Kennedy create? But I must remember that the late Senator was an advocate of putting as many folks on the government dole as possible. That’s what the left likes.

Yes, Trump has called certain women ugly and fat, but I wouldn’t say he routinely does it. And he’s going to have to quit that.

In a Republican candidate debate on Fox News in March, Donald Trump did indicate that he approved of water boarding and going further if necessary in fighting ISIS and other terrorist groups whose purpose is to destroy the United States of America. He also indicated that he would possibly order the military to kill the family members of militants who threaten the United States. The following day he backed off of that with his campaign issuing a statement saying he would not order the military to take actions contrary to international of U.S. law.

To say that Donald Trump has captured the hearts of a majority of Republicans is a stretch. He did get the votes, though. However, every Republican I have communicated with, seems to feel the same way I do about him…not their first choice, but they will vote for him, Hillary would be beyond disastrous.

Notwithstanding all of the above, the most ludicrous statement in this meme is the next to the last sentence. “This is white supremacy folks.” How is this remotely related to race? The author accuses Republicans of calling President Obama unintelligent, immoral, and anti-American. This president, like all other presidents, has, of course, been called names by his political opponents and detractors. Unintelligent, immoral, and anti-American are not racial slurs or indications that the person describing the president using these adjectives is a racist or advocates white supremacy.

Why should any of us be surprised, though? This is the tolerant left at its finest, always boasting that they are the ones who respect different points of view, always giving folks the benefit of the doubt, etc. Yeah, right!

A DIVIDED REPUBLICAN PARTY – IS THAT SO BAD?

You cannot tune into political commentary without hearing about the divided Republican Party. Republicans admit it and Democrats use it against the Republicans. Fellow Republicans admit the party is divided and are hoping that its members will re-united before the November 2016 presidential election and elect a Republican president. The Democrats are using this so-called divided Republican Party to get more votes for Democrat candidates.

Is a divided Republican Party all that bad?

In the past, I have authored several blog posts illustrating the differences between Democrats and Republicans. In review, Republicans believe that items/issues should be handled in the private sector or the lowest level of government possible; whereas, Democrats believe in a stronger more centralized government. Republicans and Democrats – What’s the Difference

Is a divided Republican Party so bad?

Yes, the Republican Party has it’s disagreements. Smart people generally do.

Republicans frequently use the term, “government over-reach” to indicate areas in which the federal government has taken control over individual freedoms and areas once controlled by states or the private sector. Don’t you think that it would be natural for individual Republicans to disagree on what may constitute “government over-reach?”

Just the other day I had a brief online discussion with a person who was very “anti-Obama” and while he didn’t indicate that he was a Republican, I think he probably is. This person, however, is a proponent of the president’s new overtime directive whereby certain salaried professionals, those making $47,000 or less, must be paid overtime by employers when they work more than 40 hours per week. I think this directive is “the plague” and will be a giant leap in destroying corporate America. This gentleman and I, both Republicans, disagreed.

The abortion issue was another issue in which Republicans were quite divided on, especially in the eighties and nineties. Many, many discussions ensued over abortion and still do today. However, with modern technology indicating that an embryo takes on many human characteristics immediately upon fertilization, the dialog of pro-choice versus pro-life is not as lively because many Republicans have converted from pro-choice to pro-life.

Democrats, on the other hand, simply and without apparent consideration, fall in lockstep with anything  the Democrat party leaders (the president, congressmen, and other party officials) declare. If it includes growing the government, raising taxes, especially on the rich, and deviating from any traditional moral behavior, the Democrats all fall in lockstep. There maybe one or two so-called conservative Democrats still left in Congress; Democrats like former Georgia Senator, Zell Miller, but for the most part these Democrats are a dying breed. Many such as Alabama Senator, Richard Shelby, have switched to the Republican Party; while many have passed away.

In addition to the fellow who felt that Obama’s overtime ruling was a good thing, I’ve had many discussions with Republicans on healthcare, the environment, abortion, gambling, taxation, affirmative action, LGBT rights, etc. A number of these Republicans have disagreed with me on many of these issues.  Also, there are many Republicans out there who will tell you that they are fiscal conservatives, but social liberals. This is common among many gay and minority professionals here in the south.

Republicans are not always going to agree with their presidents either. There were a few things where I differed from Ronald Reagan, George H. W. Bush, and George W. Bush. That’s because I think, I reason, I research, and I’m my own person, a unique individual.

Democrats/liberals/progressives will continue to shed a negative light on a so-called divided Republican Party and claim that Democrats are always united. Sometimes I wonder just how many Democrats actually agree with everything Barak Obama has done as president. There are those Democrats who do and readily admit to worshiping him.  I call those folks “Obama zombies.” Do other Democrats really feel that we need to immediately eliminate the use of fossil fuels and flip over to the more expensive and less “green energy?” Are they okay with the demonization of the nation’s law enforcement? Do they feel that the actions of the Occupy Wall Street and Black Lives Matter organizations in their protests are a good thing? Are they also okay with destroying a person’s life just because he or she believes that marriage should be between a man and a woman? I say we’ll never know the answer to these questions because many Democrats sit silent on these matters refusing to respond to questions. And when forced to respond, they become shrill and start hurling their usual bogus accusations at Republicans.

LIBERALS AND TRANSGENDER

In the last few weeks, I’ve read a number of articles posted by liberal Facebook friends about transgender individuals. The authors of the articles have attempted to convince the readers that transgender folks are not perverts or deviants, but are individuals through no fault of their own simply identify with the sex opposite to their anatomy. In other words, they may have a man’s anatomy, but feel trapped in that male body.

The king is issuing a decree that school children may use the restroom of their choice or else!

The king is issuing a decree that school children may use the restroom of their choice or else!

According to https://baptistnews.com/2016/05/13/seven-things-im-learning-about-transgender-persons/, “For a small part of humanity, the visible parts and the inner identity do not line up. For example, it is possible to be born with male genitalia, but female chromosomes or vice versa. And now brain research has demonstrated that it also is possible to be born with female genitalia, female chromosomes, but a male brain.”

So, in their push to destroy the moral fiber of our culture, liberals seem to be telling us that transgender individuals are harmless and just want the right to use the restroom where they feel the most comfortable.

It has been indicated that 3/10 of 1 percent of the American population is transgender with the population of the United States being approximately 318.9 million. So that calculates to 956,700 transgender individuals that live in the United States. So, the liberals, including the Obama administration is telling us that we have to make sweeping changes in order to accommodate 956,700 people. Ridiculous!

There are many things that make me uncomfortable out there and perhaps I need the government to provide me a safe place. One of those things is the video of the “kick six.” It makes me sad, it makes me mad, and it offends me. However, some of my friends and neighbors have it on their phones and tablets and constantly play it. Also, every time the University of Alabama and Auburn University square off for a sporting event, whether it be the Iron Bowl itself or women’s volley ball, the network is sure to show the “kick six” video. The “kick six” took place over two years ago and I’ll probably be subjected to replays of it for decades to come or until something more bizarre takes place.

The population of the state of Alabama is approximately 4.849 million. It’s been shown that approximately 2/3 of Alabamians cheer for the University of Alabama and 1/3 cheer for Auburn University. And there are certainly folks that live outside the state that cheer for these two teams. But for simplicity’s sake, I’m going to use the above stats. Two-thirds of 4.849 million is 3,234,283. So, approximately 3,234,283 people are like me and get mad, sad, and offended when the “kick six” video is played.

3.234 plus million to 956,700. I’m demanding that the government ban the “kick six” video. It is offensive to more people and makes more people uncomfortable than the measly few that have to use a restroom in which they might feel uncomfortable. If you don’t know what the “kick six” is, google it.

Furthermore, just how much time do you spend in public restrooms? If you have a day job and work outside your home, you will be using the facilities at your work place. Being generous, you probably spend a little over an hour a week in the restroom. And just how uncomfortable do you feel using the facilities at your workplace? The point I’m trying to make is that such a small segment of the population might feel uncomfortable for such a short period of time. Is this something for which we should be changing our culture and making over 317 million of our citizens uncomfortable.

If they’re thinking with two brain cells, liberals might say that it doesn’t just apply to restrooms, what about locker rooms and showers. A man showering in a women’s locker room? No, that’s just wrong!

Also, do liberals think that only innocent transgenders are going to attempt to use their restroom of choice? Knowing liberals, they probably do. However, the rest of us know that won’t be the case. Allowing men to use the women’s restroom and other facilities, or allowing women to use the men’s restroom and other facilities just allows any pervert to enter the restroom of his or her choice by simply saying he or she identifies as the opposite sex of what their outward appearance indicates.

With President Obama sending letters to every public school district in America, suggesting that they allow boys to use the girls’ facilities and vice-versa and threatening to withhold federal funds if the school district doesn’t comply is unfathomable and actually bordering on evil. Obama does not have the power as president to do this.

Liberals and the left-leaning media have condoned and even championed what this president has done in issuing executive orders and acting without Congress because they think what the president does is “good and caring” because he cares so much about the American people.

Well, what Adolph Hitler initially did in Germany was dismissed because what he did was perceived as “good and caring.” The German people bought in and drank the Kool-Aid. Before they knew it, those “good and caring” deeds evolved into evil deeds and the rest is history.

While liberals and the left-leaning media have given Obama passes when he’s acted like a dictator, this president’s “good and caring” deeds may very well be turning evil.

TAKE COVER CONSERVATIVES, THE TOLERANT LEFT IS COMING AFTER YOU!

It’s approximately six months until the 2016 presidential election and the “tolerant left” has already declared a “no holds barred” war on Republicans, conservatives, Christians, and of course, presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. So, take cover conservatives, the tolerant left is coming after you!

As an alumnae and fan of the University of Alabama, who won the national championship for the 2015 football season, I sometimes get irked when our rivals only chant, “Beat Bama.” Would it hurt you to occasionally cheer for your own team instead of being constantly obsessed by the Crimson Tide?

This obsession by Alabama’s opponents reminds me of the obsession the “tolerant left” has with conservatives, Christians, and Republicans. Because the left can’t win arguments on the merits of the issues, they have to resort to denigrating their opposition, conservatives, Christians, and Republicans.

One of the first times I took on a liberal was on Facebook where I indicated that all the Democrat party cared about was getting as many folks dependent on the government as possible. This liberal then started accusing me of hating people that were receiving benefits from the government, including Social Security and Medicare. This person was a Ph.D. and well-informed regarding political matters, but still it didn’t seem that she was able to read and understand what I was writing. Like I do with most liberals, I had to ask her to go back and re-read what I wrote. I doubt she did because she just kept on with her false accusations that were totally off the subject of my post. I admit that I was shook up after our exchange and had second thoughts about continuing this blog.

In the following months, I learned that discussions with liberals followed mostly the same path. Because liberals don’t care anything about facts and statistics, they can’t discuss an issue with any sort of reasonableness. Therefore, they get emotional and accuse you of hating the poor, hating minorities, hating public education, not wanting people to have access to healthcare, etc. Then they call you names. I’ve been called the following names: nut case, moron, idiot, ignoramus, buffoon, brain dead, and others. Because of their intense hatred for Fox Cable News, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, etc., they will denigrate you for watching Fox or listening to Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity. I was having a back and forth with two liberals about six months ago. After I had won the argument, one of the liberals addressed the other liberal saying, “give it up, she probably thinks Fox News is real news.”

Because facts and statistics are hard to remember and liberals will be shrill and emotional when they come at you, it might be a good idea to keep a few notes in your wallet or on your phone.

A few issues to keep in mind include energy policy, foreign policy, healthcare, ISIS, immigration, and race relations. These are a few of many things that Obama has messed up. In fact, Obama has messed up everything he has touched since becoming president.

So, my fellow conservatives, Christians, gun owners, Trump supporters, be brave and be strong, and continue to read Wing Nut Gal.

You can win arguments with the left, it’s not hard to do. Just don’t get discouraged when you’re called names and accused of things that just aren’t true. It’s a fact that liberals are not tolerant of different points of view. They are also much more racist and bigoted than conservatives. And if you really want to make one mad and perhaps defriend you, point out to them how racist and bigoted they actually are. This seems to drive them crazy. It’s not going to be easy, but we’re strong and confident. We’ll weather the storm.
