  • If We Don’t Get Over The First Civil War We Might Have A Second

    DB Daily Update ^ | 8.20.2017 | David Blackmon
    When the news came out that a Civil War reenactment scheduled to take place at the Manassas battlefield in Virginia was being cancelled due to fears over possible violence from leftwing groups like Antifa and Black Lives Matter, I saw a tweet from some guy saying something to the effect that “The Civil War was 152 years ago – why can’t black people just get over it?” Now, I’m a conservative and I’m pretty sure I had ancestors who fought for the South in the Civil War, since both sides of my family came into this country in the late...

    The left’s Maoist Cultural Revolution is marching right on schedule in America. After the anarchy and carnage in Charlottesville last week, when white supremacists battled Anti-Fascist punks who are actually fascists themselves, the left has again plunged into a full-fledged fury over Confederate statues and monuments. And, just when you thought the insane banishing of the Dukes of Hazzard on TV Land put this issue to rest, for once and for all, the left is back and back with a psychotic vengeance. This week, an unhinged crowd of Marxists, special snowflakes and general, left-wing losers toppled a Confederate States of...

But now 400 migrants can cross the border in a single day. On the other side of the border is New York. There the language is English. In Saint-Bernard-de-Lacolle, the language of choice is French. But these days you’re a more likely to hear Arabic, Urdu or Haitian French being spoken here as Roxham Road fills with clots of migrants scampering out of America. They’re not the...

    HIGH POINT, North Carolina — A High Point man, who stood in front of the General Robert E. Lee statue at Emancipation Park in Charlottesville, has been removed from his college in Florida. Allen Armentrout stood in front of the statue on Tuesday, days after a deadly rally Saturday where a car crashed into a crowd and killed a woman after unrest and violence between protesters and white nationalists and neo-Nazi organizations. Armentrout says he made the trip to Charlottesville to honor Lee, calling him "the greatest American that ever lived." Armentrout stood at the statue with a semi-automatic handgun,...

    The American Declaration of Independence was written by a vile slave owner, Thomas Jefferson of Virginia. The American Constitution was written, at least in part, by vile racists and other "America Firsters." They tried, but fortunately failed, to prevent noncitizens from exercising their sacred right to vote in national elections. Both demonic documents must be repealed and we must rejoin England, nay even better the European Union, to signal our virtuous multicultural nature and emphatic rejection of all evil past and present. Antifa, Black Lives (only) Matter, La Raza, adherents to Islam (the Religion of Peace and tolerance), CAIR, the...

    So, essentially seven short months ago, Mr. Trump became the 45th President of the United States of America. CNN, MSNBC, NBC, CBS, ABC, HLN, and to some extent now Fox are all trying to take President Trump down. This peculiar phenomenon that appears to be occurring however, is that with each and every attack by the media, hollywood, and leftists the President only appears to get stronger!?! President Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton by winning 30 states including states like Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, states that went for obama in 2012 but went for President Trump in 2016 and...
  • 9 White Celebs, World Leaders Whose Families Owned Slaves

    9 White Celebs, World Leaders Whose Families Owned Slaves Anderson Cooper A rule of thumb is: where there is old money, you will find some connection to slavery. So of course it wasn’t hard to determine that Anderson Cooper was connected, in a familial way, to slavery. His bloodline is tied to the Vanderbilts, one of the richest families in American history. Cooper’s great-great-grandfather, Cornelius Vanderbilt – who was also Cooper’s cousin through inbreeding – was a tycoon who built his wealth from shipping and railroads. He also owned plantations: one in particular was in Georgetown, S.C., where Michelle Robinson...

    Gun Watch ^ | 13 August, 2017 | Dean Weingarten
    President Teddy Roosevelt was a big fan of silencers. The only silencers available to him were Maxim silencers. A silencer for his take-down model 94 Winchester 30-30, above, cost $9.70 in 1909.  He used the rifle frequently on his Sagamore Hill estate on Long Island, New York.  It was the classic use of a suppressed rifle. He used it to cull pests without disturbing his neighbors, the Duponts and the Tiffanys . From Whenever Winchester introduced a new model, Roosevelt was quick to put it through its paces. He acquired an 1894 similar to all his other rifles...

    A Janitor's View ^ | August 16, 2017 | reasonmclucus
    Jesse Washington has reported that many dark skinned Americans recognize that they are not "African" Americans in spite of what some racists say. Th e term "African-American" perpetuates the principle tenet of Southern racism: "part black, all black" under the "one drop rule". Those who use the term are in effect segregating Americans with dark complexions from the rest of the population they may be related to. Those who use the term believe that those with dark complexions should only be able to claim their African ancestors and should forget about ancestors who came from Europe, North America or Asia...

    A group of anti-Confederate protesters aren’t happy enough with the declaration by the city of Memphis that it wants to dig up and move the remains of Confederate general Nathan Bedford Forrest. They want it done now. A group surrounded a shovel Wednesday and ceremoniously removed a chunk of grass and soil. “We are going to bring the back hoe, the tractors and the men with the equipment to raise Bedford Forrest from the soil of Memphis,” Isaac Richmond with the “Commission on Religion and Racism” declared to awaiting TV cameras, CBS 3 reported.

    The Democrats’ Dangerous Dolchstosslegende The Master Party would rather destroy America than question its own superiority. August 17, 2017 Daniel Greenfield Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical left and Islamic terrorism. The Democrats went into the election certain that they were going to win. The New York Times rated Hillary’s chances at 93%. The Huffington Post raised that to 98%. That was still too modest for Obama campaign manager David Plouffe who predicted a 100% likelihood of Hillary winning. It wasn’t strategy or statistics that made...

    Assault against history goes way beyond the confederacy. It has become identity politics on steroids. The way to destroy liberty is to destroy the history, especially if the hero in history is a dead white European male. . . The liberal left’s desire to tear down any and all memories of the Confederate States of America is reaching a crescendo. Statues are being torn down. State flags are being redesigned and burned. According to the Democrats, and their Black Lives Matter brethren, all vestiges of the dark time when the Southern States practiced slavery must be stricken from the record....

    Reflections on the anatomy of a setup… The news of the hour is about Charlottesville and its many copycats. For decades, there have been people agitating to take down monuments to Confederate heroes, and for just as long, there have been people defending them. But only in the summer of 2017 did this issue vault to the top of the headlines, above far worthier issues. The question of the hour should not be what to do about the statues. The question should be "Why?" Why is this issue arising, when there is so much in the world that is so...

    Will They Be Removed?: 30 Places Named After Former Klansman Robert Byrd August 16, 2017 That's just a few. Since we're gonna rename schools and take down every sign and statue of people who have a controversial past. Are we also going to include Former Klansman and Grand Wizard Robert Byrd? If we are consistent, these are some places named after Robert KKK Byrd that should be taken down. You won't see this on cable news.
