Let’s Talk About “Cultural Appropriation”

Perhaps you’ve heard people complaining of “cultural appropriation.”  If a white person opens a Chinese food restaurant, that’s “cultural appropriation.”  If a white person sings (c)rap music, that’s “cultural appropriation.”  Perhaps you’ve also noticed that the only people who are guilty of “cultural appropriation” are whites.  If the absurdity of this entire concept is immediately obvious to you, there’s not much of a purpose you serve to the human race.  So, let’s illustrate absurdity with absurdity, shall we?

Open Letter to the NFL and its Players

To the NFL and its players:
If I have brain cancer, I don’t ask my dentist what I should do. If my car has a problem, I don’t seek help from a plumber!  Why do you think the public cares what a football player thinks about politics?  If we want to know about football, then depending on the information we seek, we might consult with you, but even a quarterback doesn’t seek advice on playing his position from a defensive tackle!

You seem to have this over inflated view of yourselves, thinking because you enjoy working on such a large scale stage, that somehow your opinion about everything matters.  The NFL realizes the importance of its “image” so it has rules that specify the clothes and insignia you can wear, the language you use, and your “antics” after a touchdown or other “great” play.  But somehow you and your employer don’t seem to care that you disgrace the entire nation and its 320 million people in the eyes of the world by publicly disrespecting this country, its flag, and its anthem!  The taxpaying citizens of this country subsidize your plush work environments, yet you choose to use those venues to openly offend those very citizens.

Do you even understand what the flag of this country means to so many of its citizens before you choose to “take a knee” in protest of this “country” during our national anthem?

You may think because you are paid so much that your job is tough, but you are clueless when it comes to tough.  Let me show you those whose job is really tough.

You are spoiled babies who stand around and have staff squirt GatorAid in your mouths, sit in front of misting cooling fans when it’s warm, and sit on heated benches when it’s cold.  That’s not “tough” that’s pampered.

You think that you deserve to be paid excessively high salaries, because you play a “dangerous” game where you can incur career ending injuries.  Let me show you career ending injuries!

You think you that you deserve immediate medical attention and the best medical facilities and doctors when injured.  Let me show you what it’s like for those who really need and deserve medical attention.

You think you have the right to disrespect the flag of the United States, the one our veterans fought for, risked limbs and mental stability to defend, in many cases died for.  Let me show you what our flag means to them, their families, and their friends.

You believe you are our heroes, when in reality you are nothing but overpaid entertainers, who exist solely for our enjoyment!  Well, your current antics are neither entertaining nor enjoyable, but rather a disgrace to this country, its citizens, all our veterans and their families, and the sacrifices they have made to ensure this country remains free.  You choose to openly disgrace this country in the eyes of the rest of the world, yet with all your money, still choose to live here rather than in any other country. People with even the slightest amount of “Class” will stand and respect our flag.  Where does that put you?  You want to see heroes…here are this countries heroes!

You can protest policies, the current government, or anything else you choose, that is your right.  But when you “protest” our flag and anthem, you are insulting the nation we all live in and love, and all those who have served, been injured, or died to keep it free.  There is nothing you can do or say that can make your actions anything more than the arrogance of classless people, who care about themselves more than our country or the freedoms for which our veterans and their families have sacrificed so much, to ensure you have the “right” to speak freely.  Our country is far from perfect, but if you can point to any other country where your freedom and opportunities are better than they are here, then you just might want to go there and show respect for their flag!

Is America Now a Failed Socialist State?

Are we a failed socialist state

Two ‘Dreamers’ caught smuggling illegal immigrants into U.S.

This is just another reason NOT to legalize the so-called “Dreamers.”  Yes, they were brought here as children with little say in the matter, but contrary to what the left would have you believe, they are not all a bunch of doughy eyed pre-K school kids.  Most now are adults, and have had ample time to figure out that they are in fact here illegally, and could have made the decision to leave or make themselves known to the authorities.

THEY DIDN’T.

Once they reached the age of 18, there were no more excuses.  They were consciously breaking out immigration laws, and many are breaking all sorts of other laws, as evidenced in this article.  When the justice system turns a blind eye to the non-citizen while enforcing EVERY law on the citizen, you have a huge problem.

On contact with law enforcement, they must be sent back to whatever country they came from.  End of story.



 

Two ‘Dreamers’ caught smuggling illegal immigrants into U.S.

 – The Washington Times – Thursday, October 12, 2017

Two young illegal immigrant “Dreamers” in the U.S. under protection of the Obama-era DACA deportation amnesty were caught smuggling illegal immigrants in separate incidents in Texas, authorities announced Thursday.

The arrests come at a time when Congress is debating what to do about Dreamers, and the arrests could complicate the picture painted of Dreamers as law-abiding standouts who are victims of circumstance.

Customs and Border Protection said the first smuggling attempt was broken up on Oct. 4, after Border Patrol agents stopped a car at a checkpoint on Interstate 35 and discovered two illegal immigrants from Brazil hiding in the trunk.

The driver of the car was from Guatemala, a juvenile who had been approved by the Obama administration for a DACA permit in 2016.

Three days later the same checkpoint snared another DACA recipient from Mexico smuggling an illegal immigrant from Mexico in his trunk.

Neither of the Dreamers’ names were released.

They and the illegal immigrants they were trying to smuggle are all being processed for deportation, CBP said.

To qualify for the DACA program illegal immigrants must assert they were brought to the U.S. as children and have kept a relatively clean record.

Immigrant-smuggling violates the terms of the agreement, as does gang membership or other serious crimes of violence.

As of this summer, some 2,139 Dreamers had had their DACA status revoked, out of nearly 800,000 people who’d been approved for the program — an incredibly low rate of about a quarter of 1 percent.

President Trump last month said he was phasing out the DACA program, saying otherwise it was likely to have been struck down by the courts, which the administration said could have sparked chaos.

Instead, Mr. Trump announced a six-month phaseout, with those currently protected allowed to serve out the rest of their permits, which are good for up to two years.

The president said he wanted Congress to use the six months to pass a more permanent solution.

Democrats and some Republicans have called for a quick legalization and a full pathway to citizenship, while the Trump administration says it doesn’t support full citizenship, and wants to see any bill coupled with stiff enforcement measures.

More than 100 Million Gun Owners Did NOT Kill Anyone Today, but Abortion Doctors Did ⋆ Constitution.com

Why is it that we correctly see one nut with a gun killing 59 people as horrific, but shrug our shoulders at one “doctor” with a scalpel who kills THOUSANDS of babies? Why aren’t 55 MILLION dead babies since Roe v. Wade making America sick to its collective stomach? What about blacks, who were/are SPECIFICALLY targeted by the eugenicists who brought us abortion? You would think that blacks would be doing everything they could to end abortion since it is being used to eliminate them BECAUSE they are black.

Using the “logic” of the left, shouldn’t we be banning scalpels?

YouTube Targets Mike Rowe for Restriction, You’ll Never Believe Why! ⋆ Constitution.com

Have you ever watched Mike Rowe?  If you honestly have, then you know he’s not much of a political person, at least in his public life.  The values he tends to support could be considered traditional, and perhaps conservative, but he very much tends to keep his politics to himself.  If you’ve watched the video in question in the linked article, and you AREN’T wondering how in the world YouTube could find it offensive, I question your sanity, morality, and mental stability.

Conservatives have been noting for some time how increasingly progressive outlets like YouTube, Facebook, and Google are doing everything they can to stifle conservative thought and opinion, but Mike Rowe???  Seriously, YouTube.  At least TRY to hide your anti-conservative bias.

Bret Stephens & Second Amendment – Fundamentally Wrong | National Review

Regardless of what the screeching progressive left tells you, you need to understand ONE thing about our 2nd Amendment rights. The 2nd Amendment was NOT put in place because of hunting, and the argument that the founding fathers couldn’t foresee AR-15s and AK-47s and didn’t intend people to have military arms is a strawman because ALL weapons at the time were military weapons.

The 2nd Amendment was put in place primarily to serve as the last line of defense against a tyrannical government. Do I need to repeat that for you? Let it sink in for a moment.

The British kept trying to confiscate colonists’ weapons so they couldn’t resist the king. A defenseless populace could not resist the oppression of the government. After winning the war, the founders were determined NEVER to allow that to be the case in America again, which is why they codified their hard-earned knowledge in the 2nd Amendment.

So, as politicians begin talking about gun control again, limiting your rights to keep and bear arms, and as the democrats are now finally OPENLY discussing confiscating your weapons, you are seeing the 21st century manifestation of the King of England and the British Parliament here on American shores.

The only difference between the 1700s and now is that the oppressors are on THIS side of the ocean.



Bret Stephens is fundamentally wrong about gun rights …
