Archive for the ‘Racism’ Category

Last week, Democrats repeatedly told us that Americans were racists and that there was no escaping their racism. Then they told us that Joe Biden, who spent a half-century in the DC Swamp and contributed to this systemic racism, is the only cure for this racism. They said that the man who co-authored the 1994 Crime Bill that started mass incarcerations of black people was a fine man, a virtuous man, a man of unending decency.

My question for these Democrats is simple. How can a man who is virtuous and decent write legislation that put thousands of African-Americans in prison? This week, the Democrats’ dilemma will get exposed when Alice Marie Johnson speaks at the Republican National Convention. Ms. Johnson spent 21 years in a federal prison before her sentence was commuted by President Trump.

A campaign in support of her release was launched by the American Civil Liberties Union and the website Mic; activists who supported her release argued that the punishment was excessive and an example of disproportionate impacts on African-Americans. A number of individuals and organizations supported Johnson’s bid for clemency, including U.S. Representatives Steve Cohen, Bennie Thompson, and Marc Veasey, law professors Marc Morjé Howard and Shon Hopwood, and Orange is the New Black author Piper Kerman. According to her lawyer Shawn Holley, the warden supported her release.

Johnson’s was one of the 16,776 petitions filed in the Obama administration’s 2014 clemency project. In 2016, she wrote an op-ed for CNN asking for forgiveness and a second chance. Her application was denied just before Obama left office. In 2018, Kim Kardashian and President Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner sought to persuade Trump to grant clemency to Johnson. In late May 2018, Kardashian met with the President in the Oval Office to urge him to pardon Johnson.[19] On June 6, 2018, following Kardashian’s appeal, Trump commuted Johnson’s sentence, and Johnson was released. The commutation was one of a series of acts of clemency made by Trump in a “few high-profile cases brought to him by associates and allies.”

The Democrats’ dilemma is explaining how their standard-bearer and his running mate showed enthusiasm for putting drug dealers in prison without being part of the problem. I’d love hearing VP Biden explain why he didn’t lift a finger to get Ms. Johnson released from prison. Further, I’d love hearing him explain his justification for accusing President Trump for being a racist. He’s used Charlottesville as ‘proof’ that President Trump is a racist. I triple-dog dare VP Biden to find the racism in this full video:

Good luck with that. There isn’t any proof of racism. There’s just a baseless accusation of racism and Biden’s twisting of words. As people find out more about the Biden-Harris ticket, the Democrats will find themselves incapable of competing effectively with the Trump team.

The Democrats’ convention is over. The laser-focused attacks against him aren’t front-and-center anymore. Finally, the Democrats’ ticket is seriously undertalented compared with Trump’s accomplishments. In terms of popular vote, I don’t know what the margin will be. In terms of the electoral votes, I’m thinking that President Trump will get more for reelection than he got in 2016.

This WFB editorial perfectly highlights the Democrats’ situational belief that black lives matter. Democrats didn’t hesitate in partnering with Black Lives Matter, the organization. Democrats have been thoroughly reluctant to make the statement that ‘all black lives matter’.

The WFB editorial starts with “LeGend Taliferro was asleep in his Kansas City, Mo., home in late June when a gunman opened fire from the street outside his window, shooting him dead. He was four years old, one of the many black boys and girls killed in the past three months. Victims were front and center at the Democratic National Convention: of police brutality, of climate change, and of every other -ism. And while virtually every speaker said that “black lives matter,” not a single moment at the Democratic convention was dedicated to the dozens murdered this summer in America’s Democrat-led cities.”

Why can’t Democrats say that all black lives matter? Is it because they’re only aligning themselves with the BLM political organization? If that’s their sole consideration, then that’s a sad verdict on their party. I don’t believe that most Democrats think that. However, I think that the vast majority of Democrat politicians think that way.

Remember when we saw the horrific video of Derek Chauvin’s knee on George Floyd’s neck? People of all political parties united to express our repulsion with Officer Chauvin’s actions and rightfully so. Within 2 weeks, though, that unity was shattered by Senate Democrats when they voted against Tim Scott’s bill.

They didn’t vote against final passage. They voted against even starting the debate on Sen. Scott’s bill. Think of that. Democrat politicians won’t say that all black lives matter. Democrat politicians won’t even start debate on a police reform bill. How do those actions improve the lives of minorities? Muriel Bowser spoke about racial injustice but it was selective.

She spoke at the Democrats’ convention about George Floyd but she didn’t say a thing about Secoriea Turner of Atlanta. At the Democrats’ convention, Mayor Bowswer didn’t speak about Horace Lorenzo Anderson, Jr. of Seattle. Don’t their lives matter too? Horace Lorenzo Anderson, Sr. got a call from President Trump. He hasn’t gotten a call from Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan.

When Democratic governors call federal law enforcement an “occupying force,” and when Biden’s criminal justice platform says more about investigating police forces than keeping crime down, voters should be afraid. They should be afraid for themselves and their families. But they should also be afraid for the young black men in Chicago and Baltimore and Kansas City for whom the chance of being murdered is 30 to 40 times higher than the national average.

The Democrats’ concern for African-Americans would be convincing if it wasn’t situational. Mostly, it’s purely for partisan purposes. Rather than seeing people, Democrats see a voting bloc.

Democrats should try being Americans first, politicians after that.

Michelle Obama’s speech at the Democrat National Convention was both bizarre and disgusting. She started by saying that she loves this country with all her heart and that it pains her to “see so many people hurting. I’ve met so many of you. I’ve heard your stories and, through you, I have seen this country’s promise.” So much BS, so little time to go through all of it.

First, there’s 18 minutes of my life that I won’t get back. Next, here’s a golden oldie that suggests Mrs. Obama isn’t being honest with us:

Twelve years ago, Mrs. Obama said “For the first time in my life, I am proud of America.” It’s impossible to love America with all of one’s heart when you weren’t proud of it the first 40 years of one’s life. I don’t doubt that Democrats bought that BS hook, line and sinker. I’m confident that most thinking people detected a bunch of BS in that part of Mrs. Obama’s speech.

Later in her speech, Mrs. Obama said that a president’s words “have the power to move markets. They can start wars or broker peace.” President Obama’s decisions brought an unstable region to the brink of war. President Trump’s diplomatic team have worked tirelessly to walk us back from that precipice. Then they went to work to undo the JCPOA that threatened the Middle East. Next, President Trump’s diplomats built a bridge between Israel and the UAE.

President Obama’s ‘experts’ said getting out of the JCPOA would destabilize the region. We were told that establishing relations with Iran would start building a framework for peace. By throwing Israel under his bus, President Obama destabilized the Middle East while unintentionally driving Israel and the Saudis into a partnership.

This morning, President Trump critiqued Mrs. Obama’s speech:

Trump responded Tuesday morning to the first keynote speaker, former first lady Michelle Obama, by launching more Twitter broadsides against former President Barack Obama. “Somebody please explain to @MichelleObama that Donald J. Trump would not be here, in the beautiful White House, if it weren’t for the job done by your husband, Barack Obama,” Trump wrote.

In her speech, Mrs. Obama said this:

“Whenever we look to this White House for some leadership, or consolation, or any semblance of steadiness, what we get instead is chaos, division, and a total and utter lack of empathy.”

Let’s clarify something, Mrs. Obama. President Obama exceled at creating divisions. The first act of dividing the country came when he rejected all of their ideas for his stimulus plan. Another act of division was when he was asked about a police arrest of a college professor. President Obama said “I don’t know what happened. I just know that the police acted stupidly.” Mrs. Obama, does that sound like a man of empathy to you? It doesn’t sound like it to me. It sounds like a man stoking the fires of racial tension.

When it comes to increasing racial tensions, President Obama was skilled at throwing gas on raging racial fires. That’s what he did in Ferguson. He bought the “Hands up, don’t shoot” BS hook, line and sinker. Racial tensions didn’t start during the Trump administration. They started with Cambridge, then got stoked with Ferguson, then Baltimore.

Mrs. Obama said that President Trump is in over his head. That’s an outright lie. Here’s President Trump’s Twitter reply to that statement:

Democrats aren’t the classiest people. We know that because they contributed mightily to the #wrongtrump hashtag. “Following the death of President Trump’s brother Robert Trump, critics of the president have been tweeting the hashtag #wrongtrump, as if to say that it should have been the president to die instead. As of Sunday morning, the hashtag was the second highest trending on Twitter, with more than 77,600 tweets, including a journalist and an NAACP leader.”

Bishop Talbert Swan is the NAACP leader referenced above. Here’s his tweet:


Swan is the pastor of the Hope Church of God in Christ. This isn’t Swan’s first brush with fire:

Bishop Talbert Swan, the president of the Springfield chapter of the NAACP and the head of Spring of Hope Church of God in Christ on Alden Street, has been permanently banned from Twitter.

He wasn’t banned for life for the above tweet. He was banned for life in 2018. It isn’t a stretch to say that Swan isn’t a Godly man of integrity. Here’s one of his latest tweets:


Here’s another:


If the pastor of a church said these things about President Obama, the MSM would thrash that pastor until that pastor resigned. This pastor won’t get punished by his parishioners. What’s disgusting is that these parishioners aren’t upset with this pastor’s fits of anger. How can he serve in such a position when he’s this consumed with hate?

To President Trump: I pray that the Holy Spirit guides you to complete emotional healing after the loss of your brother Robert.

After Thursday’s funeral for Rep. John Lewis, it’s clear that President Obama can’t resist playing the role of the Democrats’ Divider-In-Chief. Anyone accusing President Trump of being the most divisive president in US history hasn’t paid attention to the nasty things President Obama has said.

Yesterday, President Obama literally used the pulpit to say “George Wallace may be gone. But we can witness our federal government sending agents to use tear gas and batons against peaceful demonstrators.” Jeffrey Lord noted in his commentary of President Obama’s eulogy that “Fifty-seven years ago, the newly sworn-in Democrat governor of Alabama, George Wallace, delivered those words [“And I say … segregation today … segregation tomorrow … segregation forever.”] in his inaugural address. In other words: George Wallace, who was a product of a political party that built its political power by supporting every imaginable policy that divided Americans by race, was at it again. Using the momentary pulpit that was a governor’s inaugural to play the race card — again.”

Here’s what President Obama said:

George Wallace may be gone. But we can witness our federal government sending agents to use tear gas and batons against peaceful demonstrators. We may no longer have to guess the number of jellybeans in a jar in order to cast a ballot, but even as we sit here, there are those in power, who are doing their darndest to discourage people from voting by closing polling locations and targeting minorities and students with restrictive ID laws and attacking our voting rights with surgical precision, even undermining the postal service in the run-up to an election that’s going to be dependent on mail-in ballots so people don’t get sick.

Democrats should be punished for President Obama’s racist eulogy:

In another part of his eulogy, Obama advocated for “ending some of the partisan gerrymandering so that all voters have the right to choose their politicians, not the other way around. And if all this takes eliminating the filibuster, another Jim Crow relic, in order to secure the God-given rights of every American, then that’s what we should do.” What President Obama omitted is the fact that the Jim Crow laws were written by Democrats. George Wallace was a Democrat, too. This shouldn’t be ignored:

What is particularly despicable here is that the race card was played at a funeral for a man whose famous moment of heroism was protesting … racism. Not to be forgotten here is that the state troopers involved that day in Selma when John Lewis had his skull cracked were in the employ of Democrat Gov. George Wallace.

Democrat President Clinton signed the 1994 Crime Bill into law that started mass incarceration. Republican President Trump signed the First Step Act into law to fix the damage done by the Democrats’ 1994 Crime Bill.

President Obama’s appearance was part eulogy, part political speech. All of President Obama’s post-presidential political speeches have been intentionally divisive. They’re usually dishonest, filled with strawman arguments and outright lies. For instance, he said that “our federal government” sent in “agents to tear gas” peaceful protesters. That’s BS and he knows it. Just reading Andy Ngo’s or Julio Rosas’s twitter feeds proves President Obama full of BS.

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.

Charlamagne Tha God has heard enough from Joe Biden. In the article, it says “On Wednesday, Biden took aim at the president’s alleged racism, suggesting it’s historic compared to his predecessors. ‘No sitting president has ever done this… No Republican president has done this. No Democratic president. We’ve had racists and they’ve existed and they’ve tried to get elected president. He’s the first one that has,’ Biden said.”

Charlamagne replied “I really wish Joe Biden would shut the eff up forever and continue to act like he’s starring in the movie ‘A Quiet Place’ because as soon as he opens his mouth and makes noise, he gets us all killed, OK? There’s already so many people who are reluctantly only voting for Joe Biden because he’s the only option and because Donald J. Trump is that trash.”

Here’s the audio from Thursday’s ‘Donkey of the Day’ segment from the Breakfast Club:

Let’s be clear about something. Joe Biden is a racist. Biden worked on legislation with segregationist senators. This article exposes Biden as a racist:

In a 1975 Senate hearing, the legendary civil rights lawyer Jack Greenberg had something to say to freshman Sen. Joe Biden. Greenberg, longtime director of the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, took Biden to task for sponsoring a bill that would limit the power of courts to order school desegregation with busing. It was a move that followed the wishes of many of Biden’s white constituents in Delaware.

The bill “heaves a brick through the window of school integration,” said Greenberg, one of the lawyers who had won the Brown v. Board of Education case that ended legal school segregation 21 years earlier. And according to Greenberg, Biden was the man with his hand on the brick.

Joe Biden worked hard to pass the 1994 Crime Bill, which ‘featured’ mass incarceration of black people. If that’s Biden’s definition of racial enlightenment, then Democrats need to abandon him as their nominee.

“Joe, you got to hurry up and announce your Black woman VP [vice president] so I can be enthused about voting for her because I will never be enthused about voting for you, and you know America is a terrible place when Kanye West seems like a viable option,” Charlamagne added.

It’s obvious that Joe Biden is in trouble with African-American voters. It’s apparent that a significant portion of them see him as the lesser of 2 evils.

According to this resolution, racism is a health crisis. That isn’t my implication. That’s from HR1 from the House Second Special Session. The resolution starts by saying “A House resolution declaring racism a public health crisis. WHEREAS, race is a social construct with no biological basis; and WHEREAS, racism is embedded in the foundation of America, beginning with chattel slavery in 1619; and WHEREAS, much of the Black experience in America has been endured under slavery and Jim Crow, which created preferential opportunities for white people while subjecting people of color to hardships and disadvantages in every area of life;”

First, let’s dispose of the myth that the United States started in 1619. In 1619, the colonies were still under British rule. The Boston Tea Party, which was one of the first rebellious acts by the colonies against British governance, didn’t happen until Dec. 16, 1773. This is proof that timelines matter. The British indeed loved a two-tiered system of government. Royalty and commoners weren’t supposed to mix. The US didn’t want that system so they did something revolutionary.

The US said that our rights came from “Nature’s God” and that “all men are created equal.” The 56 men who signed the Declaration believed that each person was created in the image of Nature’s God. That’s why the US fought a civil war to end slavery. The US is the only nation that’s fought a war to abolish slavery. That isn’t something that a nation committed to systematic slavery would do.

Even after the Civil War, the Confederacy, the home of the Democrat Party, still insisted on building impediments to full-fledged liberty. That’s what Jim Crow was about. It’s a biological fact. Next, most of the embedded pockets of racism, especially slavery and Jim Crow, were mostly found in the South when Democrats reigned supreme:

Black codes were strict local and state laws that detailed when, where and how formerly enslaved people could work, and for how much compensation. The codes appeared throughout the South as a legal way to put Black citizens into indentured servitude, to take voting rights away, to control where they lived and how they traveled and to seize children for labor purposes.

If the DFL wants to admit that the GOP was created to end slavery and that Democrats were the party of the KKK, Jim Crow and the Confederacy, that’s fine. The things that Democrats have stood for have been evil. Recently, Democrats haven’t protected minorities, letting Antifa and BLM rioters destroy minority-owned businesses and minority-owned neighborhoods. Democrats called for the dismantling of the police departments that protect minority neighborhoods.

WHEREAS, public health disparities have persisted for over 400 years and there are long-standing, unaddressed disparities as well as systemic racism and other socioeconomic inequities;

That’s a lie. The problems within the black community first appeared after LBJ’s signing of the Great Society legislation. Since then, poverty in minority neighborhoods has tripled.

WHEREAS, more than 100 studies have linked racism to worse health outcomes; and WHEREAS, in Minnesota the highest excess death rates exist for Black and Indigenous communities, at every age demographic; and WHEREAS, Minnesota must address persistent disparities in health outcomes and the social, economic, educational, and environmental inequities that contribute to them;

Linking worse health outcomes to racism is BS. How many of these ‘studies’ are peer-reviewed and questioned? Might outcomes improve if schools taught the value of proper nutrition?

Last night’s Fox News Special, featuring Harris Faulkner, highlighted a major distinction between the Democrats’ symbolism vs. President Trump’s positive actions. This difference was best highlighted during a heated discussion between Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban and retired NFL star Herschel Walker.

During their discussion, things got feisty. “Walker, a known supporter of Trump, challenged the NFL and the NBA’s decision to incorporate the phrase ‘Black Lives Matters’ on their fields and sports jerseys, arguing ‘some people may not believe in BLM.'” I’m old enough to remember the USFL. Trump signed Herschel Walker after his junior season.

The Cuban-Walker dispute is about 28:00 into this video:

Right before that is Harris Faulkner’s interview with Sean Hannity. That’s the best part of the show. But I digress. Back to Cuban-Walker. The NBA is painting Black Lives Matter on the arena floor. That sounds good but it’s a divisive statement. Cuban tried justifying it this way:

Herschel, they’re not mutually exclusive. Every life matters but when someone is in trouble you address them first. The Black community has had issues and I think, you know, systemic racism has been here for generations and it’s not going away unless we do something about it.

That’s a cop-out in my estimation. There’s a bigger problem within the black community that’s been there for a generation or more. Black-on-black crime is killing far more African-Americans each year than police shoot in a decade. It’s worse than that though. It’s worse than that when little children like Secoriea Turner, an 8-year-old in Atlanta, gets shot while sitting in the back seat of her mom’s car. Why don’t those lives matter to the activists?

Rather than supporting an organization titled Black Lives Matter, which is a symbolic gesture, why doesn’t the NBA start an organization called All Black Lives Matter. Forget about the NFL contributing $250,000,000 over 10 years to address systemic racism. That’s ok but it’s mostly symbolic. Why haven’t the NFL and NBA combined to start a scholarship fund so disadvantaged students can get into private schools?

That would be infinitely more productive than the symbolic gestures that they’ve involved in now. The NFL and NBA could use their offseasons to teach the importance of keeping families intact. That would have a huge impact, too.

It’s time for the NBA and NFL to stop with the symbolic gestures. It’s time they started with something substantive.
