MORE ABOUT WHITE SUPREMACY IN THE UNITED STATES

Rush Limbaugh does it, Sean Hannity does it, Tucker Carlson does it, Bill O’Reilly does it and most every conservative pundit and talking head does it. What do they do? Before beginning a discussion on the recent demonstrations and protests such as Charlottesville, Boston, and Berkley, all folks participating in the discussion must first denounce white supremacy, white nationalism, neo-Nazism. For to not do so, would signal to the left in this country that you are not only a hater, but a white supremacy/white nationalist/neo-nazi yourself.  And once the left labels you as such, lack of evidence notwithstanding, you’re done.

As I indicated in my August 16 article, entitled, “Condemn the white groups first, forget the rest,” the citizens of the United States of America have been conditioned by the left that racism by whites or white groups, particularly white nationalists/white supremacists if the sin that can possible be committed on the planet, and anyone found guilty of this sin must die.

If a white nationalist group and a left wing radical group such as Antifa which has its roots in the old Occupy Wall Street movement and is a communist based organization, collide, you sure can’t blame both sides and let it go at that. You must first denounce the white supremacists/white nationalists/neo-Nazis as the biggest threat this country faces, forget about Kim Jung Un and a nuclear Korea, or the Islamic terrorist state of Iran and their continued violations of the treaty former President, Barack Obama made with them.

I also mentioned in my previous article that I had heard some talking head indicating that the number of white supremacists/white nationalists/neo-Nazis in this country numbered about 100,000. Plus, if there are regular cross-burnings and lynchings taking place in the country, I haven’t heard about it, and I live in central Alabama, the Birmingham area, to be exact. Furthermore, I’m not hearing of any Jewish people being rounded up and sent to concentration camps, have you? If cross burnings, lynchings, and the imprisonment of Jews are common place in this country, wouldn’t CNN, MSNBC, or other left-leaning media outlets be broadcasting it instead of Russia, Russia, Russia, and first lady, Melania Trump’s choice of shoes?

My point is that I don’t see these white supremacist/white nationalist/neo-Nazi groups as that prevalent or dangerous. Could they become dangerous and a threat to Americans? I’m sure, if provoked enough, they could. But right now, Antifa, the MS-13 gangs, and even Black Lives Matter are a bigger domestic threat to Americans than any of the various white supremacist/white nationalist/neo-Nazi groups. And let’s not forget ISIS or also known as the Islamic State, which had its origins in the vacuum created in Iraq when former President Barack Obama pulled troops out of that country. To date, ISIS is the evilest terrorist group on the planet, and they have a presence in the United States. Also worth mention are the Taliban, the Muslim Brotherhood (a favorite of former President Barack Obama), and Al Qaeda.

While we are all familiar with the Black Panthers, Black Lives Matter, Occupy Wall Street, and now MS-13 and Antifa, before the Charlottesville melee and “Unite the Right,” except for the Ku Klux Klan, I couldn’t name any individual white supremacist groups. Once again, they are just not that prevalent and practically no incidents of a national news level can be contributed to these groups.

We have recently discovered that the son of Vice Presidential nominee, Tim Kaine, is a member of Antifa, and was arrested at the Minnesota State Capitol in March after disrupting a pro-Trump rally (According to Gateway Pundit). Children, even raised in the best of homes often go astray as did young Linwood Kaine. But, can you imagine if it had been discovered that the son or daughter of a prominent Republican was participating in a so-called White Nationalist group. CNN, MSNBC, and other MSM outlets would have a field day. Most likely, half of their time would be spent on “Russia, Russia, Russia, and the other half spent on the Republican’s son or daughter. And this would take place after the prominent Republican condemned, condemned, and condemned the actions of his offspring. To date, I am not aware That Tim Kaine has condemned the behavior of his son.

It’s hard to find statistics on White Nationalist groups. Cursory Google searches virtually turn up nothing. While searches for statistics on international terrorism, including acts committed on U.S. soil by individuals linked to foreign terrorist organizations, yields a gold mine, according to Sarah Tate Chambers in an August 17, 2017 article in lawfareblog.com. In Search of Data on White Supremacist Violent Crime.

Left wing smear merchant, Slate.com, in an article entitled “The Long List of Killings Committed by White Extremists Since the Oklahoma City Bombing,” published on August 14, 2017, tells us that in the two decades since Timothy McVeigh’s attack killing 168 in Oklahoma City, the Southern Poverty Law Center has created a list of thirty-five deadly attacks, rending 74 victims, carried or believed to be carried out by white extremists. You can read the list for yourself. The Long List of Killings Committed by White Extremists Since the Oklahoma City Bombing.  Key words here are “carried or believed to be carried out.” We don’t know if all of these killings were white supremacist based. Furthermore, these are single incidents carried by either one person or only a few people It’s not surprise that Slate pontificates on how egregious this is, thirty-five attacks in twenty years. I wonder if Slate has ever written about the bloodshed in the south side of Chicago that occurs on a nightly basis where scores of black lives have been taken and continue to be taken.

In an article on revealnews.org, a piece was written outlining an interview Reveal’s host, Al Letson had with known and admitted White Nationalist, Richard Spencer. Of course, to the left, Spencer is Adolph Hitler incarnate. Without dissecting the article, my take is that Richard Spencer indeed believes that those of white European descent are superior to those who are not. He doesn’t believe in the mixing of the races and believes that the so-called mixing has not worked well. Thus, he claims to have a long-term dream of an “ethnostate,” a territory set aside for people of European descent.

The piece on Reveal links to another article on Mother Jones, another far left smear merchant site. Among other things, the article in Mother Jones indicates that Spencer envisions a future for the United States along the lines of a “renewed Roman Empire,” a dictatorship where the main criteria for citizenship would be whiteness. Meet the White Nationalist Trying to Ride the Trump Train to Lasting Power.

While this Mother Jones article is replete with lies and half-truths, particularly about President Trump, the writing does not paint Richard Spencer as a violent or otherwise dangerous person. And if he were, I have no doubt that Mother Jones would get that in there somehow, or perhaps devote the entire piece to it. If he walked into a restaurant where I was dining, would I be scared that he would pull out a gun and start shooting? No. Would I want him seated at a table or booth next to me? No, again. If I were a non-white, how would I feel. I can’t answer that because I am white. But I think I would feel much the same way. Spencer has extreme weird philosophies that are not shared by most Americans. In other words, they are out of the mainstream of thought. But again, there is no indication that he is violent or dangerous. And for his statement in Reveal that he sees “the election of President Trump as a precursor to white identity politics becoming an overt and welcome part of mainstream conversation in America for the first time,” is a red herring. How many pot-smoking, anti-establishment former “long haired hippie-type,” baby-boomers saw the election of former President, Bill Clinton, as way to re-establish their sixties’ radicalism? How many supporters of former President, Barack Obama, felt that, as America’s first black president, even though he was only half-black, they could undeniably declare their hatred for the United States of America and be given credence?

I can’t envision the current White Nationalist/neo-Nazi movement as anything to quake and shake over. In Charlottesville, the group “Unite the Right” had a permit to protest both Friday night and Saturday. It wasn’t until Saturday when Antifa and Black Lives Matter got into the mix that things deteriorated and one woman was killed. Yes, “Unite the Right” carried tiki torches and shouted pro-Nazi rhetoric on Friday night, and did the same, sans the tiki torches on Saturday. Had these white nationalists been left alone to protest the removal of Robert E Lee’s statute and the renaming of that park, I firmly believe they would have “done their thing” and dispersed.

Antifa has participated in many demonstrations where violence and the destroying of property and the injuring human beings was intentional. So has Black Lives Matter. And to the left, these groups should be given accolades because they dared to take on white nationalists who were legally parading around and chanting slogans, but not destroying property or injuring other people.

The average liberal might say to me, “the white nationalists, while marching in Klan-like fashion and chanting pro-Nazi rhetoric, even though they were not destroying property or physically injuring people, were offending many people to the point where their victims could be emotionally damaged for life.” Cry me a river. While I certainly don’t desire to downplay that people can be damaged by emotional abuse, particularly when the abuse comes from a loved one such as a parent or a spouse, or by situations of constant, over the years, bullying by peers or classmates, a couple of hours of listening to chants where you might be the subject of those chants, especially when you can leave the scene and not listen or watch anymore, pales in comparison.

Is it a sin to hate, even if the hate doesn’t manifest itself in the form of physical violence? Absolutely. Is it a sin to offend someone/hurt someone’s feelings? Absolutely again. We’re all going to be judged on these things one fine day, though. In the meantime, why are we wasting all this media time on white nationalist groups when most people can’t name even one specific group, and violence collectively by these groups doesn’t really exist? When, on the other hand, groups such as Antifa, Black Lives Matter, the Black Panthers, ISIS, etc. have histories of destroying property and injuring people, but the left, including the MSM, and even some conservatives tout these groups as being admirable?

WHITE SUPREMACY AND ITS AFFECT ON THIS COUNTRY

I shouldn’t have to tell any of my readers about the Charlottesville, Virginia melee that took place last weekend, particularly on Friday night and during the day on Saturday (8-11-2017 and 8-12-2017). It started with a white supremacist/white nationalist group, calling themselves “Unite the Right,” obtaining a permit to protest the removal of a statue of Robert E. Lee and the renaming of the park where the statue was located to Emancipation Park from Lee Park.

I viewed videos from Friday night where protesters were carrying tiki torches and shouting Nazi/anti-Jewish slogans. As far as I know, there was no violence resulting in property damage or bodily injury on Friday night. Saturday, or course was a different story as Unite the Right was met by liberal hate groups ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter. Both liberal hate groups have a history of violence. The protest didn’t end well with a young lady who was protesting on the side of the liberal groups being run-down and killed by an alleged member of Unite the Right as he plowed his vehicle into a group of the liberal protesters. In addition to the death of the young lady, nineteen others were injured.

Stories continue to surface. One such story indicates that the Charlottesville Police were told to stand down and let the groups involved in Saturday’s melee oppose each other. Another story that has been revealed by the Southern Poverty Law Center indicated that James Alex Fields, Jr., the driver of the car that plowed into the protestors had, until recently, been an Obama supporter and a far left radical.

Again, I don’t have to tell anyone about the backlash coming from the left and the mainstream media regarding their dissatisfaction with the comments of President Donald Trump in the aftermath of Charlottesville. Most all Democrats and some Republicans have pushed back against the president because he has blamed both sides for the fracas, and also indicated that there were good people on both sides. Furthermore, most all Democrats and some Republicans have elevated the left-wing hate groups, ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter to blameless entitles, indicating that they were lovingly protesting the racist white supremacy group, not seeming to “get” that everyone was going at one another, and ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter have histories of violence.

I have had very little contact with white supremacists. Liberals would be astonished at this since I grew up in Cullman, Alabama and currently live in the Birmingham, Alabama area. But it’s true. Back in the nineties, I was working at a concession stand at the Birmingham, Jefferson Civic Center Coliseum to make money for a service club in which I belonged. One evening, while I was working, about three or four people who looked to be in their twenties/early thirties, who were adorned with swastika tattoos, were just kind of hanging out close to our stand.  I was a bit un-nerved and hoped they would move on. They eventually did, but it took them a while. To be perfectly truthful, they were not disruptive, they were just there.  Still, I didn’t want them close to me.

I don’t know who these people are, what they do for a living, what they do in their spare time, etc. But I can tell you this, cross-burnings are not regular occurrences in my neck of the woods. Also, I don’t hear about cross-burnings in other parts of the country. Cross-burnings do not appear to be common like liberals would have you think. Black neighborhoods, at least those around here, aren’t terrorized by white supremacists/Nazis/the KKK. But many black neighborhoods, particularly in Chicago, Detroit, Los Angeles, etc. are being terrorized on a regular basis. Are they being terrorized by White Supremacists? No, they are being terrorized by other blacks, particularly black gangs. While I haven’t researched this, I’m going to speculate that more blacks are killed by other blacks than by white supremacists. Are Jews rounded up and transported to labor/death camps by these people? Not that I know of.

A few days ago, I heard some talking head had indicated that the number of white supremacists/neo-Nazis/white nationalists in this country numbered about 100,000. That’s less that the seating capacity of Bryant Denny Stadium. This is miniscule.

What are these people like? Are they bitter old white men? Are they twenty-somethings who still live in their parents’ basement and frequent Internet porn sites? Do they meet once a month and chant their racist and anti-Semitic slogans in some farmer’s cornfield? I really don’t know.

What I do know is that they’re not major causes of trouble such as violence, damaging property and injuring people. Other groups such as ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter do those sorts of things.

Yes, a possible white supremacy group demonstrated in Charlottesville the weekend of 8/11 and 8/12. Are they planning other demonstrations, particularly soon? I’m hearing that’s a possibility. Are these folks transitioning from a bunch of misfits, who possibly visit Internet porn sites, and possibly chant racist and anti-Semitic slogans once a month in cornfields, to violent demonstrators who clash with liberal hate groups such as Black Lives Matter and ANTIFA?

If this is indeed happening, it’s all the fault of liberals in the United States of America and their hate groups. And let’s not forget the mainstream media.  Liberals are responsible for bringing these white supremacy groups to the forefront. Liberals, who are about nothing but hate and have as their goal the destruction of the United States of America are the ones who are elevating groups such as ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter to heroes because these groups, in the name of combating racism, are opposing a minuscule and rather silent, but dangerous segment of the United States population.

Liberals hate the middle class and seek to destroy it. They don’t want low energy prices, they don’t want lower taxes, they don’t want the United States to be a rich, prosperous nation. And they certainly don’t want those citizens who have worked hard to have a little money in the bank or in their portfolios to continue to prosper. They want to destroy those folks, because somewhere in their deranged minds, if you have worked hard and have a little something set aside, you must have cheated to get it, you must have stepped on someone else. Therefore, what you have must be taken away from you.

As of this writing, a “Freedom of Speech” rally was held in Boston, this past Saturday, 8/19/2017. The group holding the rally stated that they were not affiliated with the KKK in any way. From the news reports that have come out, the liberal hate group, ANTIFA came out to counter the freedom of speech rally. ANTIFA counter protesters significantly outnumbered the “Freedom of Speech,” marchers, labeled as a conservative group by the press, including Fox Cable News. It was also revealed that the ANTIFA counter protesters were responsible for the violent acts against the “Freedom of Speech” folks and law enforcement who were there to maintain order.

Whether these “Freedom of Speech” marchers were affiliated with the Klan or other white supremacy  groups, I don’t know. But these groups are not necessarily visible to the American public. They haven’t occupied “news time” in the last few years like the terrorist hate group, Black Lives Matter, has. But the left, in their hatred for anyone who does not toe their line, including their hatred for President Trump and his supporters, may have lit a match under a “powder keg,” unlocking what was once a “below the radar” group. Thus, continuing to divide the United States of America, in hopes of destroying this great country, the country who gave them the freedoms to express their philosophies on how we should govern ourselves, the country who gave them the right to dissent, something they now consider patriotic, but declared racist when Barack Obama was president.

As I have previously indicated in my writings, when an alleged white supremacy group is involved, it is the crimes and actions of the white nationalist group that must be condemned. If groups such as ANTIFA or Black Lives Matter are involved, they cannot be mentioned because, according to the left, and some on the right, if the purpose of ANTIFA/BLM is to counter the white supremacy or neo-Nazi group, they are acting for a noble and holy cause. Forget the fact that both ANTIFA and BLM have histories of violence.

Yes, forget the above facts because liberals don’t care about facts, nor do they care about the truth.

CONDEMN THE WHITE GROUPS FIRST, FORGET THE REST

The citizenry of the United States of America has been conditioned by the left that racism by whites or white groups, particularly white nationalists/white supremacists, is the worst sin that can possibly be committed on the planet. And since the left makes up the definition of racism to fit its needs of the moment, they can accuse you on the spot and take steps to severely punish you, even to the point of ruining your life. And that’s okay.

This liberal directive has also spilled over into the conservative circles. No matter what the facts may be, or if the facts have yet to be determined, if an incident occurs where a white person, or white groups have possibly exhibited  acts of racism, that conservative leader, politicians, pundits, elected officials, etc. must race to the microphone to denounce the white person/white group. No facts are required and if the act turns out to be not true, it doesn’t matter. If the person(s) involved incur damages or if their live/lives are ruined, who cares. They’re white people and it’s our purpose to wipe out all white people or beat them into submission.

The Charlottesville melee has fully confirmed the above. Even though the white nationalist group, “Unite the Right” was acting in unacceptable Nazi-like fashion, the groups, ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter, with histories of hate and violence themselves, showed up and the protest site ready to rumble. But, according to Big Brother (the left and the main stream media), ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter have no responsibility in this. In fact, these two hate groups should be applauded because, according to the left, excuse me, Big Brother, they were there to confront racism.

When watching The Five on FNC last night, I observed that Kimberly Guilfoyle and Dana Perino, both conservatives, were displeased with the president’s responses to Charlottesville, thinking that he should have barreled out, grabbed a microphone, and denounced “Unite the Right” as being the sole perpetrator of the events in Charlottesville. Jesse Watters was the only talking head that seemed satisfied with the three addresses by the President. I couldn’t get a feel for what Greg Gutfeld was thinking, and of course Juan Williams thought the President’s actions were unacceptable and that ANTIFA/BLM had no blame in the melee whatsoever.

As I write this, I’m reviewing an article posted on townhall.com in the last hours. According to townhall.com, House Speaker, Paul Ryan, is taking issue with President Trump’s statements regarding the Charlottesville melee. Speaker Ryan tweeted the following: “We must be clear. White Supremacy is repulsive. This bigotry is counter to all this country stands for. There can be no moral ambiguity.

In addition to Speaker Ryan, GOP Chairwoman, Ronna Romney McDaniel corrected the president as to who is to blame for the violence. Chairperson McDaniel tweeted the following: “In Charlottesville, the blame lays squarely on the KKK and white supremacists.”

Speaker Ryan Questions Trump’s ‘Moral Ambiguity’

Like I said above, with respect to acts of racism committed by any white individual or white group, the entire nation appears to have been conditioned to zero in on the white folks/white groups involved and exclude any other groups which may have behaved badly also.

I’m currently listening to Rush Limbaugh and what he’s saying parallels to what I’m writing. Of course, I will be demonized by the left and perhaps some on the right for my observations and opinions. While I may have known this all along, the Charlottesville incident has made me more aware than ever of how the left in American has continuously brainwashed and conditioned the American people and will continue to do so.

In fact, the United States of American is dangerously close to becoming Oceania in the George Orwell novel, “1984.” In fact, I’m going to say it…We are “1984” with the left, including the main stream media assuming the role of “Big Brother.”

DEMOCRATS WHO CELEBRATE THE BIRTHDAY of MARTIN LUTHER KING ARE HYPOCRITES

With all this white privilege garbage being bantered around by the left and something new added to the definition of racism almost on an hourly basis, I was thinking about the words of Dr. Martin Luther King in his “I Have a Dream” speech.

While we’re five months away from celebrating Dr. King’s birthday, I can’t help but be saddened at how far away we have deviated from his dream.

In reviewing the text of his speech, I was searching for the following: “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.” “I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia, sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave-owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.”

In searching for the above, I also came across this: “We must forever conduct our struggle on the high plane of dignity and discipline. We must not allow our creative protests to degenerate into physical violence. Again and again, we must rise to the majestic heights of meeting physical force with soul force. The marvelous new militancy which has engulfed the Negro community must not lead us to distrust all white people, for many of our white brothers, as evidenced by their presence here today, have come to realize that their destiny is tied up with our destiny. They have come to realize that their freedom is inextricably bound to our freedom. We cannot walk alone. And as we walk, we must make the pledge that we shall always march ahead. We cannot turn our back.”

All my life, I have interpreted these words of Dr. King and the Civil Rights movement in its entirety to have as a goal a near color-blind society, where skin color is likened to hair color or eye color, used predominantly for identification purposes. Having said the above we can’t ignore the facts that the disease, sickle cell anemia strikes only blacks and melanoma/skin cancer strikes mostly whites.

Approximately 44 years after modern day civil rights legislation was passed, the United States of America elected its first black president, Barack Obama. I didn’t like Barack Obama, and I still don’t. He’s a Democrat and I don’t identify with Democrat party politics. I oppose the major expansion of government entitlement programs, including the government takeover of one-sixth of the nation’s economy (the health care industry). I oppose punishing and demonizing the wealthiest Americans just because they are rich, and don’t adhere to the Democrat theory that anybody who has money obtained it off the backs of those less fortunate. I believe that it is necessary to have a strong military to protect American citizens from the invasion of foreign regimes intent on destroying this country. I believe that it is necessary that Americans have the right to bear firearms in order to protect themselves from those who intend to harm. I could, of course, write more, but I’ll end it here.

But the fact that I, along with millions of others, didn’t like Barack Obama, doesn’t change the fact that in 2008, we elected a black president. This event should have signaled to the nation and the rest of the world that we’ve achieved a society in which skin color, with few exceptions, holds little more importance than hair color or eye color.

With blacks making up only 13% of the United States population, Barack Obama had to have some white votes to get elected.

After the 2008 election, and to some extent after the 2012 election, Obama supporters/Democrats demonstrated their hatred for those who didn’t march in lockstep with their policies regarding how this country should be governed. The typical Democrat rant went as follows: “You lost, get over it. We’re in charge now, we’re going to do what we’re going to do. We don’t care what you think.”

Instead of being proud that the nation’s first black president was a Democrat, and looking forward to the probability that their dreams of a socialist utopia would be closer to becoming a reality, Democrats/liberals/progressives displayed their fangs and claws in numerous attempts to “beat down” those on the other side of the political spectrum.

To be labeled a racist during this time was the worst thing that could happen to a person, something from which he or she would never survive. Thus, everyone took extreme measures to avoid having this label slapped on them.

Unlike former Democrat presidential candidate, Jesse Jackson, Barack Obama, during his campaign made it clear that the United States would no longer be a red country or a blue country. Instead it would be a purple country. He was going to be a president to all Americans. And that’s how it should be.

There was one little thing wrong with this. He didn’t mean it. From early on in his presidency, Obama flaunted his racism and disdain for those who weren’t in lockstep with what he wanted to accomplish as president. While most presidents, including previous president, George W. Bush, recognized that in America, we have the right to disagree with our leaders and the right to express those disagreements, Barack Obama vehemently resented all those who were against his governing philosophies.

The hate of Barack Obama toward his political opponents, gave license to the left wingers of this nation to continue the hate toward those who failed to toe their political line. Thus, anyone who didn’t go along with Obama and the Democrats was a racist. I witnessed the plight of many of my conservative friends attempting to explain to liberals that their differences with former President Barack Obama had nothing to do with his skin color, but where he stood on the issues facing this country. To these explanations, the left was deaf, dumb, and blind, continuing to hammer home that anyone who didn’t like or agree with Obama had to be a racist. Seeing that explaining to liberals about why I didn’t care for Obama was an exercise in futility, I simply referred them to this website and challenged them to find anywhere in any of my writings where I belittled Barack Obama because of the color of his skin. Of course, there are not any.

Even after visiting my blog and admitting there’s nothing in my writings where I’ve besmirched BHO with regard to his skin color, liberals will still accuse you of being a racist. They’ll say you’ve used certain “buzz” or “code” words that connect to racism. When a liberal does attempt to do this, I let him or her know that our conversation is now over. I don’t deal with “buzz words.” End of conversation.

Since the election of Donald Trump to the presidency and his subsequent inauguration, the left has been on a tear regarding not only racism, but sexism, homophobia, and xenophobia. And I understand that misogyny is the new term for sexism. White people are to acknowledge they are privileged because they are white and can’t possibly comment or have any opinions where race is concerned because they haven’t experienced the “black experience” or “the people of color” experience. It sounds like we’re on a collision course to punish white people, particularly white men and render whites powerless. Liberals seem to think that’s okay.

Tell a liberal that you don’t see things in terms of race and seek to judge people by the content of their character as opposed to the color of their skin and see what all things will get said to you. Here’s an example: “Nancy Graham do you feel better now telling us all you don’t see color? You’re a liar and that should make you feel kinda awful. Because you are awful.”

In recent months, we have witnessed a wave of accepted segregation from the left. According to the Washington Examiner, http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/black-lives-matter-group-bans-all-other-races-from-their-open-meeting/article/2619392, The Black Lives Matter organization based in Philadelphia created a public event on Facebook for a gathering they were hosting which they marketed as an “open meeting.” As many know, the supporters of the Black Lives Matter movement are very diverse. However, for the Philly chapter of BLM, their meetings and events are strictly “black spaces” according to their FB event announcement. When pressed via Twitter, the official account of BLM Philly explained that anyone is free to support the movement from a distance, however, their meetings are only for black people. They even cited Malcom X, the human’s rights activist who advocated for segregation.

And remember, Evergreen College, that liberal bastion in Washington state? The students sponsored a “Day of Absence & Day of Presence demonstration for which white students, faculty, and staff were asked to leave campus for one day. Biology professor, Bret Weinstein was berated by dozens of students outside his classroom on the day of the event for refusing to participate in the event.

It seems that liberals are poised to steer the American culture toward a culture that supports segregation and judging people by the color of their skin. It’s perfectly okay to call someone a racist, or for that matter, a misogynist, a xenophobe, homophobe, etc. with no concrete proof. We’re liberals, we’re superior, we make up definitions to suit our needs of the moment, and if we say you’re something, then you are. The end.

Dr. King said in “I Have a Dream,” “We must not allow our creative protests to degenerate into physical violence.” Well, so much for that. According to liberals, it is okay to riot, destroy property, injure, or even assassinate or murder when something happens that we don’t like.

“The marvelous new militancy which has engulfed the Negro community must not lead us to distrust all white people, for many of our white brothers, as evidenced by their presence here today, have come to realize that their destiny is tied up with our destiny. They have come to realize that their freedom is inextricably bound to our freedom.” Again, so much for Dr. King’s dream. We’re now told that all white people, especially white males are evil. Even those who stand with us in our efforts to destroy property, injure, maim, and even kill, are not to be allowed in our inner circles. They must realize their evilness and submit to whatever punishments we wish to inflict upon them.

“We cannot walk alone. And as we walk, we must make the pledge that we shall always march ahead.” This instruction from Dr. Martin Luther King is obviously out the window with the left advocating separation of the races and the banning of whites from anything and everything involving “people of color.”

And yet, in five months when Martin Luther King’s birthday rolls around, we’ll be treated to a sickening display of liberal leaders, including Barack Obama, Michelle Obama, Sheila Jackson Lee, Maxine Waters, Corey Booker, Keith Ellison, etc. singing the praises of Dr. King. I have a couple of close friends who are black and liberal. They will certainly attend the many local celebrations held in the Birmingham area.

The folks I mentioned above, including my friends are hypocrites, yes hypocrites. If you support what’s currently taking place in this nation with respect to race, you’re a hypocrite. You’re no better than George Wallace in his early years as governor of Alabama. You’re no better than Birmingham Police Commissioner, Bull Conner, of firehose and police dog fame. In fact, you exist on the same plane as the Ku Klux Klan. How can you even celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King’s birthday when you’re an advocate of today’s racial politics?

Wait! I know! You’re liberals, you have no scruples, no sense of fairness, no sense of wrong and right. It’s whatever suits your needs of the moment and gives you a euphoric complex of superiority. And anyone who dares to disagree with you…well, we know about that.

BLACK LIVES MATTER EXPLAINED

BLM

I shared the above meme from my personal Facebook page stating: “If Black Lives Really Mattered to You, You’d be Gunning Down Gang Bangers and Dope Dealers Instead of Cops.”

This was about the Black Lives Matter movement not hesitating to destroy property, injure people, destroy businesses, and interrupt people’s lives if someone black was shot (and killed) by a policeman, particularly a white policeman before an investigation of the incident could be completed, and the facts determined.However, when it comes to black on black crime, such as on the streets of Chicago and Detroit, the movement doesn’t seem to care, along with many blacks.

A FB friend took issue with me, indicating first that this was not how BLM worked, nor was this how the justice system worked. In the United States of America, innocence is assumed until proven guilty. However, BLM seems to be out there rioting and destroying before an investigation and trial can be conducted. While some of the BLM folks in certain incidents have indicated that they want to protest peacefully, they have generally never waited until the facts of the case were determined. Then there’s always those folks who never intended to protest peacefully, with their actions leading to property loss, bodily injury and total disruption.

This same individual also indicated that there had been no cases where the BLM movement has been charged or correctly accused of causing any physical harm to any officers. The organization, as a whole, may not have shot any police officers because organizations are not tangible. But, according to TheGatewayPundit.com, as of July 17, 2016, at least eleven police officers have been shot dead, and several shot and injured by Black Lives Matter activists since the movement began in August 2014. The FB friend indicated that the movement was one thing and then there are just people who are consistently mad at the perfect law enforcement officer, no matter what color his or her skin may be.

If the BLM movement is indeed unicorns, puppies, and justice for all, why didn’t they denounce these isolated individuals who were rioting? Why didn’t they denounce those individuals who were alleged to have shot the police officers? Why were alleged members of BLM protesting at the Minnesota state fair and in the streets of New York City,  yelling, “Pigs in a blanket, fry ‘em like bacon,” and “What do we want, dead cops, when do we want it, now?” Why did they unabashedly interrupt a Bernie Sanders rally when Bernie was running for the Democrat nomination for president?

The person objecting my sharing of the meme  also referred to “perfect” law enforcement officers. No one ever said that all law enforcement officers were perfect. Yes, there are bad cops, but overall, our police officers are fine people. I have law enforcement officers in my family, and I was engaged to one. I’m on the side of law enforcement.

My nemisis went on to indicate that this meme was outright false, political fodder, conformation bias material, divisive props, and not even close to being finished on this list, but completely dismissive of what the cause actually stands for. This meme was asking a question, no conclusions were drawn. Political fodder? Perhaps. Most liberals have no problem with the actions of BLM and most conservatives do. Confirmation bias? Confirmation bias is defined as the tendency to interpret new evidence as confirmation of one’s existing beliefs or theories. I haven’t seen any new evidence that would indicate that Black Lives Matter is something else other than a violent organization where its members take the law into their own hands and create havoc when something happens that they don’t like. The leaders have not come out to explain themselves or the organization. Divisive props? The meme is one with which most people are either going to agree or disagree. I’m not sure what the person who took issue with this meme may have meant in the allegation following divisive props, but he/she did indicate that people like me are dismissive of what the cause actually stands for. Again, maybe if Black Lives Matter is about justice for all, why don’t their representatives come out and explain themselves? Why don’t they explain why isolated incidents of police officers shooting blacks get their attention and the daily, sometimes hourly black on black murders in Chicago, Baltimore, Detroit, etc. get dismissed? Don’t these people also deserve life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness?

My FB friend further indicated that BLM was being treated like a joke. I can tell you, the Black Lives Matter movement is no joke, and I don’t know anyone who thinks it is. It’s a dangerous organization, and has failed to prove otherwise. Of course it’s not okay to take the law into your own hands. The meme was illustrating that since BLM expends so many resources and energy causing havoc whenever a policeman shoots one black person, without regards to the facts of the case, wouldn’t those resources and that energy be better served in situations where multiple blacks are sometimes killed in one evening.

While representatives of billionaire Democrat activist George Soros have vehemently denied the funding of the Black Lives Matter movement by Soros’s Open Society Foundation, documents have been published which show that two months before the denial, the OSF board approved $650,000 to BLM. This is according to thenewamerican.com. Instead of using this money to actually help improve the lives of poverty stricken blacks, it was used to create more unrest in the form of violent protests and staged riots, also according to thenewamerican.com.

You may remember that George Soros once said that he would be willing to spend every penny of his vast wealth to defeat George W. Bush in the 2004 presidential election. He’s still wealthy and George Bush was elected. According to humanevents.com, Soros would like nothing better than for America to become subservient to international bodies. He has repeatedly said that he sees himself as a messianic figure.

Divide and conquer is one of many ways that a nation can be weakened and eventually diminish and or dissappear. Certain elements have been seeking to divide this country along different lines, including racial, social, economic, and political for decades. George Soros has no love for the United States of America and is allegedly funding and promoting groups that seek to divide the country.

Food for thought.
