While Democrat leftists caterwaul about “Gestapo activities” in Portland, these Democrat leftists ignore the fact that businesses are permanently closing their doors. Apparently, Democrats don’t care about the guys who run places like Old Town Pizza & Brewing. Old Town Pizza & Brewing recently finished the day “with just $18.75 in sales.”

It’s just another sad story in a series of sad stories radiating out from Democrat-run cities. Adam Milne, the owner of Old Town Pizza & Brewing, recently said “I think all restaurants are really hurting and struggling, but I’m not sure if the city and state officials realize that to be a restaurant and to be in downtown Portland right now is a double blow. Not only are we suffering from the pandemic, but we have an area of the state that everyone is avoiding eating and drinking.”

Thanks to Antifa’s and BLM’s nightly riots, only an idiot would venture into downtown Portland. Meanwhile, Democrat House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn said this on CNN:


Rep. Clyburn should be thrown out of the House for uttering that type of BS. Instead of challenging him on making such an incendiary statement, CNN just let it go. This isn’t some back-bench bomb-thrower. This is the third-ranking Democrat in the House. Further, he’s the guy that helped Joe Biden win the Democrats’ presidential nomination. Without Clyburn’s nomination right before the South Carolina Primary, Bernie would be the Democrats’ nominee.

Speaking of Mr. Biden, here’s what he said in an ad about uniting the country:

First, Biden hasn’t criticized Portland’s violence with the exception of him criticizing federal law enforcement:

Former Vice President Joe Biden said Tuesday that the Trump administration was deploying Department of Homeland Security officers in Portland without clearly defined goals, even as department officials defended their efforts to eliminate violent protests. “We have a president who is determined to sow chaos and division,” said Biden, the presumptive Democratic nominee to challenge President Donald Trump on Nov. 3. “To make matters worse instead of better.”

I guess that’s Biden’s way of uniting the nation. Criticizing law enforcement officers who are protecting a federal courthouse isn’t uniting people. It’s being a loud-mouthed jerk, then pretending to be a uniter.

The question is whether Americans will admit that they see what’s happening. Joe Biden isn’t pro-law enforcement. He’s for whatever keeps Democrats together. In his minute-long ad, Biden talked about representing all Americans, whether they voted for him or not. What we’ve heard from, though, are the words of a divider, the words of a hate-filled man.

Joe Biden won’t challenge Ted Wheeler, Portland’s mayor. He won’t stop the rioting, either. Frankly, Joe Biden doesn’t know how to challenge Democrats. Whatever they want to do is fine with him. Portland is proof of that.

FOOTNOTE: When Barack Obama was president and Biden was his vice president, they were openly hostile to the police. Read about what they did in Ferguson. Remember that they didn’t lift a finger to stop Chicago’s violence, either. If you want more of the same, vote Biden. If you want safe streets, vote Trump. It’s that simple.

Since Nancy Pelosi insists on getting rid of statues of former members of the Confederacy, Louie Gohmert is insisting on taking it a step further. Gohmert, along with fellow House Republicans, “introduced a resolution Thursday” that would force Democrats to change their Party’s name.

Specifically, the resolution would “remove any items that names, symbolizes or mentions any political organization or party that has ever held a public position that supported slavery or the Confederacy.” To stick it to the Democrats further, Gohmert issued a statement. Here’s what it said (in part):

As outlined in the resolution, a great portion of the history of the Democratic Party is filled with racism and hatred. Since people are demanding we rid ourselves of the entities, symbols, and reminders of the repugnant aspects of our past, then the time has come for Democrats to acknowledge their party’s loathsome and bigoted past, and consider changing their party name to something that isn’t so blatantly and offensively tied to slavery, Jim Crow, discrimination, and the Ku Klux Klan.

To avoid triggering innocent bystanders by the racist past of the Democratic Party, I would suggest they change their name. That is the standard to which they are holding everyone else, so the name change needs to occur.

Rep. Gohmert was just getting started. He delivered this speech on the House floor:

Rep. Gohmert read this into the record, too:

Whereas, The 14th Amendment, giving full citizenship to freed slaves, passed in 1868 with 94% Republican support and 0% Democrat support in Congress; the 15th Amendment, giving freed slaves the right to vote, passed in 1870 with 100% Republican support and 0% Democrat support in Congress.

Just for good measure, Rep. Gohmert included this information:

Whereas, The 1924 Democratic National Convention convened in New York City at Madison Square Garden; the convention is commonly known as the “Klan Bake” due to the overwhelming influence of the Ku Klux Klan in the Democratic Party. 

Whereas, In 1964 the Democratic Party led a 75-calendar-day filibuster against the 1964 Civil Rights Act.

Just like Joe Biden, the Democrat Party is racist to its roots. Here are some of Biden’s greatest hits:

  1. You can’t walk into a 7/11 or Dunkin’ Donuts without hearing a slight Indian accent.
  2. I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American (Obama) who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy.
  3. Unless we do something about this, my children are going to grow up in a jungle, the jungle being a racial jungle.
  4. That people would come to him and talk about what was happening to them at home in terms of foreclosures, in terms of bad loans that were being … I mean these Shylocks who took advantage of, um, these women and men while overseas.

Then there’s this:

Biden has also had many friendships with infamous bigots and racists, including:

  1. George Wallace, a Democrat politician who served as Alabama’s governor and is remembered for declaring, “segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever!” Biden said the Democrats needed another candidate just like George Wallace.
  2. Biden also effusively praised Sen. John Stennis of Mississippi, another Democrat segregationist, calling him “a man of character.”
  3. Biden also cultivated a fawning friendship with James Eastland, yet another racist, segregationist Democrat senator. Eastland called segregation “God’s Law” and repeatedly referred to blacks as an “inferior race.”

There’s more than ample proof that Democrats are the Party of Bigots and Racists. Finally, what have Democrats done in the last 25 years to improve the lives of African-Americans? Did they push for the passage of the First Step Act? Nope. That was the GOP. Did Democrats push for permanent funding of HBCUs? Nope. That was President Trump.

Ben Ament’s monthly column is one of the worst monthly columns they’ve ever published. Some of the assumptions made are ridiculous or far-fetched.

For instance, Ament wrote that “The erectors of the Confederate monuments were white-controlled governments in mostly southern cities. These men knew full well that the monuments would intimidate the people of color who walked by them every day.” I’d challenge that, if for no other reason than the fact that minorities would’ve been too busy worrying about racists like the KKK and the bigots, mostly Democrats, who wrote the Jim Crow laws to worry about statues of dead people. It’s also quite likely that they were worried about raising their families or grateful for being able to attend inspirational churches to worry about dead generals.

Later, Ament wrote “White privilege is also the privilege of being blind to the existence of white privilege. It gives whites the right to claim they earned every cent in their 401k and they fully deserve to be paid more than others for performing the same tasks. This is not do deny that whites as a whole work hard. But so do minorities — often twice as hard.”

Talk about the mother of all assumptions. When’s the last time your co-worker told you that whites “deserve to be paid more than others for performing the same tasks”? As bad as that assumption is, this assumption is worse:

But some of these acquaintances want me to remove my blinders and see the response from the left of the political spectrum as somehow the same as or worse than that from the right. They ignore the swastikas and Confederate flags, torches and clubs carried by the so-called alt-right meant to provoke anger.

Mr. Ament’s paranoia notwithstanding, what is he talking about? Then there’s this:

Standing behind the cross of Christianity while doing so is doubly troubling. It seems, for some, the only reason for being kind and loving to another human is to get into heaven. If this is so, then the point of Christianity has been lost. I guess it is white privilege to define your beliefs as you see fit.

Mr. Ament is a totally ill-informed. Christians know that they can’t earn their way into heaven. Being nice to people is the right thing to do but that won’t get them into Heaven.

Those who led a rebellion against the United States for the express purpose of continuing to enslave human beings for monetary gain should not be honored. None of the statues in question were erected before or during the Civil War.

These statues are inanimate objects. Why can’t we use these inanimate objects to teach about that part of our history the treachery that these men visited on minorities? We don’t need to accept scenes like this:
