  • Obama's tweet in response to Charlottesville violence is the most liked ever

    Does that peace and love horse blank also apply to the liberal radical antifa thugs who showed up in Charlottsville to pick the fight they started???

    Obama is going to pontificate about peace and love now?? This acolyte of Saul Alinsky is going to talk of love??? Really????

  • Homeland Security Committee to Hold Hearing on 'Dangers Posed by Domestic Terrorists'

    “I strongly encourage members of both parties to engage the witnesses on the dangers posed by domestic terrorists and other extremist groups. Racial intolerance deserves no place in America and it is imperative that we find ways to rid our nation of the scourge of white supremacism.”


    I had not heard anything about white supremacists or neo Nazis in many many years, until this weekend. Now all of a sudden, they are the major topic in the news. Now all of a sudden, there’s a rush to remove historic monuments so as not to honor slaveholders and all this crazy stuff going on. Now all of a sudden, we don’t care about the alleged Russian interference in our elections, we don’t care about North Korea, now all we care about is the alleged scourge of white racism???? How the heck does the media decide which stories to push at any given time???

    And it was all instigated by the counter protesters who showed up at Charlottesville. Maybe someday we will learn that the whole damn thing was staged and created by the radical types, to try to trigger a reaction such as the car crash which killed a woman, which could then be blamed on the “white supremacists”.

    I never heard the term “White Nationalists” until this event happened. Now that term is all over the news. Is that a newly created term, such as how the media created the term “White Hispanic” to describe George Zimmerman in the Trayvon Martin case???

  • Change.org Petition: Tear down the statue of Robert Byrd in the US Capitol

    FDR ordered the imprisonment of Japanese Americans.

    By the liberals own criteria, no way that he can be honored for anything, because of that action.

    If the liberal radical types are going to tear down monuments to the sins of the past in our history, then to be intellectually honest, they need to go after liberal icons too.

    I never understood how the Democrats were ok with an avowed member of the KKK as a Senator. Or how he can be honored even today.

    Well, go for it, liberal/radical types. Rip the name and statues of Byrd down everyplace in West Virginia where his name shows up. Do that and you will at least be intellectually honest in your quixotic quest to cleanse American history.

  • Violent Tribalism on Display in Charlottesville

    Attempting to ascribe degrees of blame to the protest groups in Charlottesville misses the point entirely about today’s political violence. The Alt-Right’s venomous racism is no more, or less, contemptible than the Alt-Left’s belief that offensive speech must be banned at any price. Violence is violence, regardless of the politics behind it.


    He makes some good points, such as this one.

    The problem is, the media and the liberals have decided to take sides, and have decided the entire blame for the violence belongs to what they are again calling the “alt right”. Where did the “alt right” term come from? I remember Hillary said something about them last year, then dropped that from her campaign speeches. Apparently didn’t pass muster with her focus groups.

    But the point is, the media and liberals have taken sides. They have decided that the antifa thugs were the good guys, even if they behaved as thugs, they are being given a pass by the liberals.

    So now, as a result, they have pushed into overdrive to cleanse us of Confederate monuments. They are not letting a crisis go to waste. They are taking advantage of this moment to push that particular agenda item on their list of things they want to do.

    I don’t understand this from the standpoint of why do Moslems have any opinions on this? The civil war happened long before there were significant number of Moslems in this country. How does any of this affect Moslems?

    She feels she was protesting the legacy of slavery and all that.

    Question—. If someone gets injured when toppling a statue, can they sue the locality over their injuries incurred while involved in illegal trespass and destruction of property???

    Nice.

    You figure if these radicals get their way, we have to change much of our money.

    Washington on the $1 has to go. So does Jefferson on the $2.

    Is Lincoln ok on the $5??

    Hamilton can stay on the $10 because some idiot wrote a half assed play about Hamilton, which the liberals loved. So he can stay.

    Jackson is evicted from the $20.

    President Grant on the $50; is he ok? He fought the evil Confederacy in the Civil War.

    Ben Franklin should go off the $100, as he was one of those evil white men founding fathers, which we’re not supposed to call them founding fathers, even though all were men.

    IF these liberals can’t stand Washington, let them give me all their dollar bills. I’ll take those offensive portraits of Washington off their hands.

    How long till we get new dollar bills, with Obama or some other liberal icon???

    but of course. This is what Trump was getting at yesterday in that press conference. Now we can’t have the name of George Washington out there because he owned slaves.

    The liberals derided Trump in that press conference, in part because of what was thought to be an absurd suggestion, that Washington was next.

    The very next day, we see Chicago talking of taking the name off of Washington Park.

    What the heck is going on behind the scenes to drive all this? Someone is not letting a crisis go to waste .

    Does anyone question how it is, that all of a sudden, the issue of Confederate monuments is the most important issue in this country???

    All of a sudden, we now have many localities removing or discussing removing Confederate monuments.

    Just because of a car crash at what was probably a staged event in Charlottesville, because of a girls tragic death, now we have to move to remove Confederate monuments???

    How the heck do people jump to these conclusions???

    If we are intellectually honest, then, every time there is a Moslem terror attack, shouldn’t we remove a mosque???

    The negro youth should be happy. Their lives are now complete now that evil reminders of the past are gone. Now they can stop protesting the legacy of slavery and all that.

    Baltimore asks people to promise not to kill anyone over a weekend. That’s their solution to the problems of violence and shootings there.

    Recently some Civic leaders in Baltimore had a conference and concluded that Baltimore has an image problem. They lamented how middle class families with children have moved out of Baltimore. They wondered what to do to bring back people.

    Good will the president received from whom?? The media?? The liberals?? Are all events to be viewed through their lenses, and interpreted through their filters??

    This makes it sound like the baseline for viewing any situation is from the point of view of the media in the New York/Washington axis.

    “Your child is genetically predisposed to buckteeth. We recommend - strongly, we should add - immediate termination.”


    That’s what I’m talking about. Where will it end when you start down that road??

    And, we can imagine being “strongly recommended” to terminate the pregnancy.

    In China, as I recall, with their one child policy, those who violated that policy were penalized with regard to various governmental benefits, schooling for the child, and other sanctions were put in place.

    Of course we aren’t a totalitarian society such as China. Not yet anyway. But as we move down that road too, these scenarios become more plausible.

    Witness how bakers are forced out of business for not baking a cake for a homosexual wedding. There are already aspects of totalitarianism in our culture. Extend that to decisions about aborting a less than perfect baby, it’s not such a long leap if you think about it.

    Part of it is political correctness.

    We live in a politically correct world now.

    There is such fear of being called racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, all that stuff — this affects our social/political debates and discussions of what our laws and policies should be in this area.

    So in the area of immigration, we are told “we are a nation of immigrants”, and how you are xenophobic if you oppose illegal alien amnesty, and then the debate is shut down. Then people are put in the position of trying to show they are not bigoted or xenophobic, rather than being allowed to discuss the merits of the actual issues involved.

    The same thing happens with other issues too.

    If you oppose affirmative action, you are racist.

    If you oppose all this LGBT transgender bathroom business, you are bigoted against transsexual peoples.

    If you opposed homosexual marriage, you are likewise bigoted against LGBT peoples.

    If you oppose global warming, you are said to be in favor of pollution.

    If you favor repeal of Obamacare, you want 20 million people to lose health insurance. You are a heartless bastard.

    If you favor making changes to Medicare so it doesn’t go broke as scheduled, you want to throw Granny off the cliff. Likewise, you are a heartless bastard.

    The left does this on so many issues. They call you vile names, and put you in the position of trying to demonstrate that you aren’t some sort of heartless bigot, rather than being able to discuss the merits of laws and policies. And the politicians among us have those fears too.

    it is a slippery slope. What’s next?

    Abort any babies with a predisposition to various diseases, cancers, when such tests are developed?

    We have lost certain moral values, certain ethics.

    NPR laments how “conservative media” shapes opinion????

    Then do they accept the premise that the media try to shape opinion? Then if so, do they accept that liberal media, such as themselves, anchored as they are in the New York/Washington axis, try to shape opinion in a liberal direction???
