ANALYSIS/OPINION:

I know of no white person alive today in the United States who has ever legally owned a black slave, or any slave for that matter. Almost 700,000 mostly white men died 160 years ago to end slavery. Jim Crow ended generations ago. Yet black America, for the most part, is still locked in inner-city gang violence and economic hardship. Why?

Is it because America is racist?  Is it because of some overhanging white supremacy?  Is it because of the Illuminati?

No, unfortunately, it is because of black culture and the adoption of Democratic Party government dependency. 

We have just had eight years of the first black president.  Black athletes, and entertainers, routinely earn multi-million dollar incomes.  I can easily name several black billionaires without even trying too hard. A large percentage of black America is very successful. But, it is not enough. Too many black youth are being left behind.

And it is no one but black America’s fault. 

No one can solve this problem but black America.  No one can throw enough money at it.  We’ve tried that.  Black America needs to look in the mirror and stop blaming others, especially white people.

I am obviously white and conservative, and I served in the military, which, during my time, was as color blind as you could be. I can also honestly say I don’t give a damn what color your skin is, neither do any of my friends.  I do care about your actions. 

Blacks are around 15 percent of the population. Depending on what study you look at, they commit around 40 percent to 50 percent of violent crime in America. Of course, there is going to be a problem with police.  And, of course, there are some bad policemen. However, those bad apples do not kill black people statistically anymore than they kill white people.  Even Harvard said that recently. If you were a cop, and you had to work in a neighborhood infested with crime and murder, wouldn’t you act differently than in a neighborhood where there was little crime? The most effective thing black America could do to improve its relationship with police is to significantly reduce violent crime where they live.  Yes, that means change the culture of where you live and your community. 

I for one am tired of being blamed.  I am tired of dealing with people who only want something from others.  I don’t oppress anyone.  I don’t hold anyone down.  I’m tired of getting on the D.C. metro and seeing white people being harassed by roaming gangs of black youth with their pants around their knees.  Yes, you want a white person uncomfortable?  That makes me uncomfortable.  It’s our nation’s capital and it’s embarrassing. 

Blacks have nothing but opportunity in America.  Try finding the same opportunity anywhere else in the world.  If you are born in America you’ve won life’s economic lottery.  Take advantage of it. 

The problem is this generation has been taught an agenda of cultural Marxism by our education system.  They’ve been taught to be a victim, and it’s still going on.  All you have to do is watch the young black, female student at Yale screaming at the college president to understand that.  Blacks in America don’t even know how good they got it. 

Don’t kneel when my anthem is played.  Too many people died for that flag.  You are free to protest but not then.  I am free to not watch, or pay to watch you play if you do that.  The NFL should make it a rule that you stand for the national anthem.  There is no free speech to disobey a private employer on private property.  This would solve the problem immediately.

The NFL has deeply offended most of America.  They will pay an economic and reputational price, as they should.

We have a real cultural problem in this country, the result of the Leftist multicultural agenda.  Multi-ethnicity is perfect and should be encouraged.  Having more than one American culture is destroying the country.  But then again, that is what the Left wants.

Do Black Lives Matter?

It is your job to determine if this is a racist rant or just a review of factual data…

WHAT IF ALL THE BLACKS SUDDENLY LEFT AMERICA, WHICH IS 13.3% OF THE TOTAL U.S.POPULATION:

Amount of people in poverty would drop – 34%,

The prison population would go down by -37%,

Welfare recipients would go down by – – – 42%,

Gang members would go down by – – – – – 53%

Average SAT scores would go UP almost – – – – -100 points,

The average income for Americans would go UP over $20,000 a year,

BUT DEMOCRATS WOULD LOSE 76% OF THEIR VOTING BASE!!!

And, many criminal defense attorneys would have to find another line of work!

Yes, Black lives DO matter!

NY Times: Murder Rates Rose in a Quarter of the Nation’s 100 Largest Cities

The NY Times unsurprisingly completely misses the boat on the cause of the spike in homicides in major cities across the US.  They blame drugs.  No, drugs are just another symptom of the root cause.  The root cause is the decay in our moral foundation caused by a growing biblical illiteracy.  When the Bible and biblical principals were the foundation of our society, when they were taught in church, in school, and reinforced everywhere, we didn’t have these kinds of problems.  Whether or not you were a Christian is irrelevant.  The core principles were universal.  You were NEVER taught that it was acceptable to do drugs, destroy other people’s property, have children out of wedlock, engage in all manner of deviance and many of the other behaviors that are now tolerated.  Those who scream the loudest to remove God from our society are often the first to bemoan the inevitable results, and are ALWAYS wrong about the cause of those results.

You’ll Get Suicided

There’s a WHOLE lot more truth than poetry to this.  There is NO OTHER candidate or political figure in America with a trail of dead bodies behind them as long as the trail behind the Clinton’s.  If you know stuff about the Clintons, whether you are a foe or an ally who MIGHT POSSIBLY EVER rat them out, you don’t live long.

Was Justice Antonin Scalia Murdered?

A Supreme Court justice is found dead with a pillow over his face, in unwrinkled pajamas, after his security detail is told to stand down, coincidentally in a county where the cause of death can be legally pronounced on the scene, and no autopsy is then required, and the judge pronounced him dead of natural causes OVER THE PHONE.

If you want to fuel conspiracy theories, this is the way to do it.  Even though this is all conveniently legal because of Texas law, this is the first time I can remember the federal government NOT pushing to investigate to the max extent possible the death of one of their own.

Republicans in control of the House and the Senate, two crappy candidates for the democrats, Obama’s “fundamental transformation” stalled, and the only way to advance it being through the courts…  Yes, there’s a possibility that someone connected to Obama had Scalia killed, and the circumstances surrounding his death just open the door to these theories.

Have someone independently do one or more autopsies, just like they did for a simple street thug like Mike Brown.  They brought in coroners from the local, state, federal, and military sources to do autopsies on Brown to quell a LOCAL disturbance.  The death of Scalia has NATIONAL implications.  Shouldn’t we have the same due diligence in investigating the death of a pivotal Supreme Court justice?

Oh, by the way, the senate doesn’t owe Obama a vote or confirmation of his nominees to the court.  The same democrats who are whining most loudly about this are the same ones who obstructed EVERY Republican sponsored bill (Harry Reid), and also refused to bring up any George W. Bush nominee in the last year of HIS presidency (Chuck Schumer).  So, if they don’t like it, tough.  It’s time the Republicans start fighting as hard to protect our Constitution and nation as the democrats fight to destroy them.

Listen to Chuck Schumer decrying “judicial activism” in his own words.  He doesn’t mind it when it’s a LIBERAL judge legislating from the bench.

New York Sen. Charles E. Schumer, a powerful member of the Democratic leadership, said Friday the Senate should not confirm another U.S. Supreme Court nominee under President Bush “except in extraordinary circumstances.”

Update:  More info

“For the rest of this president’s term and if there is another Republican elected with the same selection criteria let me say this: We should reverse the presumption of confirmation. The Supreme Court is dangerously out of balance. We cannot afford to see Justice Stevens replaced by another Roberts, or Justice Ginsburg by another Alito. Given the track record of this president and the experience of obfuscation at the hearings—with respect to the Supreme Court, at least—I will recommend to my colleagues that we should not confirm a Supreme Court nominee except in extraordinary circumstances.”

Blue Army of Thousands March in Texas in Support of Police

#BlackLivesMatter is a terrorist organization.  They are advocating the random killing of whites and police officers.  The people in this movement, or who agree with it, are latching on to a lie that blacks are being indiscriminately murdered by police officers, especially white police officers, at some disproportionately high rate.  This simply isn’t true.  FBI crime statistics show that whites are killed at a higher rate, and in higher numbers than blacks.  But what the FBI crime statistics also show is that blacks commit crimes at a disproportionately high rate.  Guess what?  When you commit crimes, you’re going to have run ins with the police.  When you have a run in with the police, and you act in a violent or threatening manner, you are much more likely to get shot.  The Black lives matter folks should watch this video from one of their own for advice on how to handle an encounter with the police:  Chris Rock – How Not to Get your A** Kicked by the Police

We should all be marching like this to support our police, and ourselves.  Guess what?  Black lives DO matter, but so do white lives, and Hispanic lives, and Asian lives…  ALL lives matter.  Stop focusing on color, and focus on wrongdoing.  No sane person, regardless of skin color, wouldn’t join you in ferreting out corruption and illegal behavior.  If you continue this race war, a lot of innocent people are going to be killed, both black and white.



Blue Army of Thousands March in Texas — #PoliceLivesMatter

HOUSTON, Texas – A thin blue line of police supporters stretched for over a mile along a Texas highway on Saturday as over 8,000 Texans took to the streets. The marchers gathered in the #PoliceLivesMatter parade in memory of murdered Harris County Sheriff’s Deputy Darren Goforth and in support of all police.

Islam: Inbreeding, Bestiality, Pedophilia, Adultery, and Prostitution

I’ve told you before, and I’m right, that islam allows and encourages inbreeding, bestiality (sex with animals), pedophilia, adultery, and prostitution.  Don’t tell me it doesn’t because it’s right there in their ‘holy’ book, and their ‘prophet’ (who sought to profit) Muhammed (excrement be upon him) engaged in ALL of these activities.  Now the so-called ‘holy’ men of islam issue their decrees on these subjects, and these decrees don’t get any less disgusting than what is printed in the koran to begin with.

Below are some videos and articles to illustrate these points.  I have also seen much of it with my own eyes, and if you’ve paid ANY attention to the news you have seen ample evidence that everything else I and others have told you about islam is true.  It is NOT a religion, but a theocratic system of government where a small handful of men decide what ‘god’ is telling the people to do.  It is a satanic death cult where inbreeding is called for and has destroyed the adherent population of islam.  It is a culture of perversion where pedophilia is the norm, and homosexuality is rampant even though they claim it isn’t (in my exposure to islam, if you’re the ‘giver’ they don’t consider it gay).  It is a violent culture that murders, beheads, executes, burns, and otherwise exterminates ANYONE who disagrees with them, or exposes the truth of about islam, placing it in an unflattering light.

In short, islam is INCOMPATIBLE with the rest of the civilized world, and is NOT to be tolerated.  I will tolerate any ideology, religion, or viewpoint even if I disagree with it up to the point where that ideology, religion, or viewpoint says that its followers must kill me for disagreeing with it.  Thus you have the reason that America MUST expel islam from our nation if we hope to survive.  You can NOT tolerate and accommodate an ideology that has sworn to destroy you.  That is suicide.  Again, I am reminded of the words of Sir Karl Popper on the topic of tolerance, which perfectly sum up our relationship with islam:

Unlimited tolerance must lead to the disappearance of tolerance. If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them. In this formulation, I do not imply, for instance, that we should always suppress the utterance of intolerant philosophies; as long as we can counter them by rational argument and keep them in check by public opinion, suppression would certainly be most unwise. But we should claim the right to suppress them if necessary even by force; for it may easily turn out that they are not prepared to meet us on the level of rational argument, but begin by denouncing all argument; they may forbid their followers to listen to rational argument, because it is deceptive, and teach them to answer arguments by the use of their fists or pistols. We should therefore claim, in the name of tolerance, the right not to tolerate the intolerant. We should claim that any movement preaching intolerance places itself outside the law, and we should consider incitement to intolerance and persecution as criminal, in the same way as we should consider incitement to murder, or to kidnapping, or to the revival of the slave trade, as criminal.

A Critical Look at the Koran

The article below is an excellent exposition on the koran, and what we MUST do to combat the ideology it preaches if we are to survive.  The evidence shows the koran to have been dreamed up entirely from the mind of a violent, lying pedophile, and foisted on unsuspecting followers who respected strength more than intelligence.  These followers now go beyond faith to blind adherence to the book, and act as though the god they follow isn’t strong enough to defend himself by killing ANYONE who disagrees with or disparages this ‘god.’  How do you combat such an ideology?  By proving the fallacy of it.

A Critical Look at the Koran

shutterstock_image of Koran

“May Allah accept this from me.”

“I’m doing it in the name of Allah.”

“To establish Islamic law—Allah’s law on earth.”

The above are statements made by would-be and successful jihadists to explain their motivations for planning or executing acts of terror in America. Jihadists in other parts of the world say much the same thing. Where, then, do they get the idea that this is what Allah wants them to do?

Jihadists usually cite the Koran as the source of their motivation. For example, Terry Lee Loewen explained his planned jihad attack on Wichita’s Mid-Continent Airport last December as follows:

I don’t understand how you can read the Qur’an and the sunnah of the Prophet and not understand that jihad and the implementation of Sharia is absolutely demanded of all the Muslim Ummah.

So how can we disabuse terrorists and potential terrorists of the notion that Allah wants them to kill infidels? The obvious place to start is with the Koran. We can’t say, however, that there is absolutely no warrant in the Koran for killing unbelievers, because there patently is. “When the sacred months are over slay the idolaters wherever you find them” (9:5) is typical of many similar verses. According to a content analysis conducted by the Center for the Study of Political Islam, 24 percent of the Medinan verses of the Koran are devoted to jihad. Or, as Taliban leader Baitullah Mehsud once declared, “Allah on 480 occasions in the Holy Koran extols Muslims to wage jihad.” Continue reading
