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.

This week’s e-letter update from Minnesota House Majority Leader Ryan Winkler is typical DFL spin/bullshit. The e-letter update starts with the announcement that the “House Jobs and Economic Development Finance Committee will hold a public forum today (Tuesday, June 30) at 5:00 pm on the Promise Act. Then it says “The Promise Act also establishes a Civil Unrest Investigatory Commission to conduct a neutral investigation into the government’s response to the unrest, with a public report due by December 15, 2020.”

Later in Winkler’s update, he writes “Unlike the neutral investigation that House Democrats proposed as part of the Promise Act, Senate Republicans recently announced partisan hearings into the civil unrest that followed George Floyd’s murder. We know Senate Republicans have been working from the start with Bob Kroll of the Minneapolis Police Federation and his allies to preserve the status quo for public safety. The forthcoming hearings they plan to hold will have zero credibility because they were organized without the input of any DFL Senator, including POCI Caucus members.” Winkler finishes by writing this:

It’s clear that Senate Republicans are focused on throwing red meat to their base on FOX News instead of working with us to create a system of public safety where everyone can be safe, no exceptions. I’ll have more to say later this week when the Senate holds its first hearing.

Apparently, one of Rep. Winkler’s gifts is that he knows what’s going to happen days before it happens. Apparently, this gift doesn’t work on gas tanker trucks, though. Don’t forget this:

Winkler doesn’t know what’s happening at this Senate hearing. He’s a typical DFL partisan hack. When Winkler tweeted about the oil tanker truck, he intentionally said that the vehicle had racist stickers on it. He couched it as ‘I just heard some things from friends who said …’ At a time when tensions are higher than Mount Everest, you don’t throw white gas on that fire.

It turns out that the guy who got into the near-accident was delivering to a gas station owned by an African-American gentleman. Winkler got virtually everything wrong about the incident. He put out gossip that might’ve ignited more rioting. That’s the definition of irresponsible. The first order of business at the next special session should be censuring Winkler for being this reckless. He’s a back bench hack who shouldn’t be House Majority Leader.

Democrats think the George Floyd murder is a political winner. It’s indisputable that it started that way. Unfortunately for Democrats, the political issue didn’t stop with the murder. That was just the start of things.

After that, the race riots started, complete with the looting destruction of minority neighborhoods. If you’re accusing whitey of hating minorities, why would the first targets be minority businesses and neighborhoods? The next thing that’s destroying the Democrats’ George Floyd ‘advantage’ is the Democrats’ calls to defund the police. Minneapolis took it a step further by voting for dismantling the Minneapolis Police Department.

CHAZ/CHOP happened next. Jenny Durkan, Seattle’s dipstick Democrat mayor, and Jay Inslee, Washington’s pathetic Democrat governor, just say idly by while Antifa and BLM anarchists took over 6 blocks of downtown Seattle. When asked about how long it might last, Durkan tried spinning it:

If you’re sensing a trend developing, you aren’t alone. It’s what happens after every major crisis. After every crisis, the Democrats insist that they have a mandate to dramatically transform American society. These Democrats are terrible at reading the public, mostly because they spend little time listening to the public.

The current overstep is tearing down the statues. While some will go along with eliminating the Confederate Flag, only Antifa and BLM anarchists think that tearing down the statues of U.S. Grant, Frederick Douglas and Abraham Lincoln is popular.

Like Yasir Arafat, Democrats never miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity. The Democrats’ biggest mistakes came this week. First, Dick Durbin described Sen. Tim Scott’s JUSTICE Act a token gesture. Next, Nancy Pelosi said that that “Republicans were trying to get away with murder, George Floyd’s murder.” Finally, Democrats voted against opening debate on Sen. Scott’s JUSTICE Act. These Democrats didn’t even want to debate the merits of the JUSTICE Act. Democrats didn’t want to amend the JUSTICE Act. Democrats wanted nothing to do with Tim Scott or the JUSTICE Act. Let’s hear Democrats respond point-by-point to Sen. Scott’s interview:

This might frighten Democrats but I’ll say it anyway. Tim Scott isn’t going away. The JUSTICE Act will get a hearing, whether that’s in the Senate as a complete bill or offered as amendments to the House bill when the Senate debates that bill. The only way for Senate Democrats to avoid voting on the JUSTICE Act is if they vote against debating the House Democrats’ bill in the Senate.

That I’d pay to see. Tim Scott’s JUSTICE Act is supposedly a token bill so Senate Democrats won’t even debate it. The House Democrats is so bad that Senate Democrats won’t debate that bill either? I’d love hearing Schumer explain that.

The Democrats have a race crisis. Part of the Democrats’ crisis is that they’ve taken minorities for granted for 50 years. The other part of the Democrats’ crisis is Tim Scott, who can walk the walk.

When Nancy Pelosi, the Democrats’ Speaker of the House of Representatives, said that Republicans were “trying to get away with murder, actually, the murder of George Floyd”, Democrats sat silent. Not a single House Democrat expressed outrage over Pelosi’s statement. Some might’ve said something in official statements but nobody got on the morning shows and lit her up like a Christmas tree. The lack of outrage is disgusting.

Saying that Mrs. Pelosi is heartless isn’t news. That’s something we’ve known since 2006. I’ll say this without any political correctness. Mrs. Pelosi is the biggest bitch in the Democrat Party, including Hillary Clinton, Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren. Clinton, Harris and Warren are back-benchers compared with Pelosi. She is to bitchiness what Adam Schiff is to leaking and outright corruption. But I digress.

When Tim Scott, the point person for Republicans on police reform, went on Guy Benson’s show, he didn’t hold anything back:

“I thought to myself that how in the world does this woman sitting, standing in front of a twenty four thousand dollar refrigerator have the sense to jump into the bottomless pit of race politics? Why in the world would she want to do that? There’s only one answer, by the way. One answer. It’s because she’s lived so long in a state of privilege that she has forgotten. That is the Republican Party that voted more for the civil rights era legislation than the Democrats. It’s because she’s forgotten that it was President Trump and the criminal justice reform done in 2018 that made it for the Democrats 1994 crime bill. She’s forgotten. That is the school choice movement that frees more kids in poverty from the poor education system brought to us by the Democrats and the teachers unions than they’ve ever seen. She has forgotten so much about reality that she spends too much time in an alternate universe. But the facts are simple. Why in the world would she stoop so low? And is simply this they believe. I truly believe this. They believe that campaigning on police brutality is more important than solving police reform.”

When I said that not “a single House Democrat expressed outrage over Pelosi’s statement”, I said it because it’s important to this discussion. If people aren’t willing to set aside partisanship on this issue and do what’s best, they aren’t morally fit for office. Period. Full stop. Nancy Pelosi isn’t morally fit for this debate.

That’s before talking about the 45 Senate Democrats that voted against starting the debate on Sen. Scott’s JUSTICE Act. Rather than debating and amending Sen. Scott’s JUSTICE Act, Senate Democrats joined with Mrs. Pelosi. With their votes, they said that partisanship was infinitely more important than fixing a racial crisis. Think about that a bit. Democrats rely heavily on African-American votes but they won’t vote for a bill that will improve African-Americans’ lives.

That’s the definition of moral depravity. That’s what not having a soul looks like. This is what not having a heart looks like:

This interview is what it looks like when 2 thoughtful people of different political persuasions talk about fixing a crisis:

We need more people who want to fix this nation, fewer people who want to play politics during a crisis. In that America, Tim Scott towers over Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats.

Last week, Joe Biden insisted that “the moment has come for our nation to deal with systemic racism.” How does Biden know that there’s systemic racism across the nation? Coming from a guy who’s spent the last 40+ years of his life inside the Washington, DC echochamber, I’ll question how much he knows about what happens outside the DC echochamber. Remember that Biden’s alleged specialty is foreign policy.

I say alleged because former Defense Secretary Robert Gates once said “I think he has been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades.” Remember that the last time Biden got involved with major domestic policy was with the 1994 Crime Bill. That’s the bill that started mass incarceration of minorities. That’s the bill that President Trump started fixing with the First Step Act.

There is racism in this nation. There always will be because we’re a nation of sinners. There’s racism in every nation on earth because all nations are nations of sinners. South Africa’s population was majority black. There was a white minority government. That’s the definition of systemic racism. There’s nothing like that in the United States. There never will be.

The system that’s repeatedly let minorities down is unified Democrat governance in major US cities. Nancy Pelosi’s father, Thomas D’Alesandro Jr., was once Baltimore’s mayor. While mayor, D’Alesandro “spoke at the dedication of a monument to honor Confederate Gens. Robert E. Lee and Thomas ‘Stonewall’ Jackson.” That isn’t proof that Pelosi or her father were racists but it says that Democrats lecturing Republicans about racism better prepare for some stiff pushback.

Racism isn’t systemic as much as it’s individual. Each person individually is responsible for dealing with the issue. Saying that it’s systemic let’s the individual off the hook and invites government intervention, too.

When Democrats voted against opening debate on Sen. Tim Scott’s JUSTICE Act, they sent the message that they aren’t interested in fixing the problem. In each of the cities that had major race riots after the murder of George Floyd, Democrats could’ve fixed the problem before the murder. That’s because each of those cities have been run by Democrat mayors for decades. Most of those states have had Democrat governors for years and years.

Since they’re the ones in-charge, Democrats should’ve fixed the problems. Instead, they played politics with the issue. Since real police reform comes only at the local level, these Democrat mayors and Democrat governors should’ve fixed their problems long ago. The thing that’s important to notice is that Democrats don’t fix things. Democrats let things fester, then use them as campaign issues. Doing what’s right the first time isn’t part of the Democrats’ thinking.

That leads me to an old cliché about Democrats. It goes something like this: Democrats will always do the right thing — when it’s the only option left. I’d argue that this is only true part of the time. This is the Democrats’ solution to white privilege and systemic racism:

Republican Sen. Tim Scott has lived with racism all his life. Since entering Congress, he’s worked on race-related issues. He was the chief author of the Opportunity Zones section of the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act. He’s worked hand-in-hand with HUD Secretary Carson to bring economic opportunities to minority neighborhoods. Frankly, he’s got more credibility on race-related issues than any politician, including President Obama.

Democrats are losing credibility on race-related issues because they’re constantly thinking of how this or that event can be converted into a political advantage. That isn’t how normal people think. They just think about doing the right thing, then making it happen. Yesterday, Democrats ripped the mask off. They exposed themselves as interested in race-related issues only in the context of winning control of the Senate majority.

Yesterday, Senate Democrats exposed themselves of putting a higher priority on partisanship than on doing the right thing when they voted to not even start debate on Tim Scott’s JUSTICE Act. Democrats voted to not start debate on the bill. Democrats voted to not let the amendment process start. Minnesota senators Amy Klobuchar and Tina Smith are constantly touting their bipartisan record. They voted against starting debate. Think about that.

Democrat senators Amy Klobuchar and Tina Smith, who theoretically represent Minnesota, the state where George Floyd was allegedly murdered, voted against the JUSTICE Act, aka police reform. Minneapolis is the city where Floyd lost his life. Their city council wants to “dismantle” the Minneapolis Police Department, aka the MPD.

This pair should be leading the fight for the JUSTICE Act. Instead, these Democrats voted against it. That isn’t a sign of bipartisanship. That’s proof of bad faith negotiating. If I lived in Minneapolis, especially in one of those minority neighborhoods that were looted, then destroyed, I’d take it out on the politicians that didn’t protect me.

This is typical Democrat thinking:

This is typical GOP get-positive-things-done thinking:

That’s quite a contrast. Republicans want to fix existing problems. Democrats want to stoke racial fears ahead of their next campaign. It isn’t that Democrats want to fix things. That isn’t part of the Democrats’ recent history. Democrats used to be dealmakers back before they lost their minds. Daniel Patrick Moynihan and Bill Clinton were dealmakers. By the way, where is Bill Clinton these days? We see Hillary too often. Ditto with President Obama. Bill Clinton is nowhere to be found. That isn’t difficult to figure out. Bill Clinton doesn’t want his legacy tarnished by today’s Democrats.

Things aren’t working too well for the anti-police Democrats:

A progressive Minneapolis neighborhood that pledged not to call the police in the wake of the death of George Floyd is now dealing with a 300-strong homeless encampment in a local park, according to reports. Traffic has reportedly increased in the neighborhood around Powderhorn Park, as drug dealers seek to meet their clientele displaced during the civil unrest, rioting and looting following Floyd’s death at the end of May. At least one person overdosed inside the park and was brought out by an ambulance. Prostitution has also been reported in the area. Residents though have agreed to “check their privilege” and “protect people of color” by not involving law enforcement to report instances of property damage, according to the New York Times.

By checking their privilege, there’s been an upsurge in prostitution and drug overdoses. Isn’t that lovely? Thanks to the Democrats’ bad faith and their unwillingness to negotiate during this historic opportunity, major cities are falling apart. Needless to say, these cities are run by Democrats.

If you think that Democrats care about crime, you’re kidding yourself. There’s no proof that Democrats are willing to do the things that are required to maintain a civil society.

It isn’t every day that you see an article where a prominent African-American citizen criticizes Black Lives Matter, aka BLM. This article quotes Muhammad Ali’s son, Muhammad Ali Jr., as saying “Don’t bust up s–t, don’t trash the place. You can peacefully protest. My father would have said, ‘They ain’t nothing but devils.’ My father said, ‘all lives matter.’ I don’t think he’d agree.”

Ali Jr. continued, saying “It’s not just black lives matter, white lives matter, Chinese lives matter, all lives matter, everybody’s life matters. God loves everyone, he never singled anyone out. Killing is wrong no matter who it is,’ Ali said during an hour-long interview with The Post. On police brutality, Ali defended law enforcement in general. ‘Police don’t wake up and think, ‘I’m going to kill a n—-r today or kill a white man. They’re just trying to make it back home to their family in one piece.'”

That isn’t the most incendiary part. This is likely getting the most backlash:

Speaking of Floyd’s killing at the knee of a white Minneapolis police officer, Ali said, “The officer was wrong with killing that person, but people don’t realize there was more footage than what they showed. The guy resisted arrest, the officer was doing his job, but he used the wrong tactic.” He agrees with President Trump that Antifa fomented violence during the Floyd protests and should be labeled a terrorist organization.

“They’re no different from Muslim terrorists. They should all get what they deserve. They’re f–king up businesses, beating up innocent people in the neighborhood, smashing up police stations and shops. They’re terrorists, they’re terrorizing the community. I agree with the peaceful protests, but the Antifa, they need to kill everyone in that thing. Black Lives Matter is not a peaceful protest. Antifa never wanted it peaceful. I would take them all out.”

That will get some attention. This will too:

This, though, will attract the most heat:

“I think Trump’s a good president. My father would have supported him. Trump’s not a racist, he’s for all the people. Democrats are the ones who are racist and not for everybody. These [Democrat politicians] saying Black Lives Matter, who the hell are you to say that? You’re not even black.

Democrats don’t give a s–t about anybody. Hillary Clinton doesn’t give a s–t; she’s trying not to get locked up. Trump is much better than Clinton and Obama. … The only one to do what he said he would do is Donald Trump.”

The biggest question I have is what effect people like Jack Brewer, Pastor Darrell Scott and Sen. Tim Scott are having within the African-American community. Couple that with Candace Owens’ #Blexit Movement. I don’t have the answer to this question but it’s one worth paying attention to — are these this year’s hidden Trump voters?

Columbus—Explorer vs. Conqueror // Enrichment vs Destruction
By Ramblin’ Rose

Recently the US championed that after a lengthy hiatus, we again launched a shuttle from our soil to outer space to continue explorations. Humankind has always dreamed of what lies beyond the horizon.

Well, not all, apparently. As the mourning of the wrongful murder of George Floyd morphed into protests into vandalism into anarchy, the focus of the emotional outbursts had changed from white vs. black to the rejection and destruction of anything of this country, its history, its foundation. Rather than following the agenda stated to explore changes to better civilization, the morphed plan seems to be to destroy this country and return to the glory prior to 1492. Or, maybe even prior to 1700 B.C. when slavery was recorded—the domination of one person over another for forced labor.

At the epicenter of the riots and anarchy in the metro area in Minnesota, the indigenous peoples toppled a statue of Christopher Columbus. (Yes, similar destruction occurred in other cities. In fact, monuments commemorating historical leaders and events in many “Western” countries have met similar destruction.) But why Columbus? Why the native Americans? How did the events of May 25th turn to the hatred for Columbus?

Columbus, as the prototypical Western white male, not Columbus the man, epitomizes the perceived prejudices of the Europeans against the native peoples, according to the multiculturalists. Dinesh D’Souza, an Indian-born American author and filmmaker, defines multiculturalism as “a denial of all Western claims to truth.”

Was Columbus an explorer or a conqueror of the New World? Our world?

Columbus sought a shorter trade route to India and sailed west. But he never set foot on the soil of North America in any of his four voyages to the New World. History credits him with calling the indigenous peoples “Indians” because he thought he had discovered the way to India. On his first voyage, he landed on an island in the Caribbean, probably San Salvador.

Yes, initially Columbus expressed his prejudice about the peaceful islanders, the Tainos. He said that the men were handsome and the women beautiful. D’Souza writes “…He praised the generosity and lack of guile among the Tainos, contrasting their virtues with Spanish vices. He insisted that although they were without religion, they were not idolaters; he was confident that their conversion would come through gentle persuasion and not through force.The reason, he noted, is that Indians possess a high natural intelligence. There is no evidence that Columbus thought that Indians were congenitally or racially inferior to Europeans…” Reportedly, other explorers (Pedro Alvares Cabral, Amerigo Vespucci, Ferdinand Magellan, and Walter Raleigh) provided similarly positive impressions about the native peoples.

Later, Columbus found another reality in the islands. The men he left when he returned to Spain were savagely murdered by the Arawak tribes who also inhabited the region. That reality also contradicts the rosy history reported by the indigenous peoples, specifically the American Indian Movement, aka AIM.

While the exact history and origin of those called Native Americans are still under debate, it seems certain that they were not native to the Americas. Nor is the date or the path of their arrival without discussion. What is widely accepted is that they came from somewhere else. Many theorize that they arrived from Asia (some claim Africa) via the Bering Strait…probably in waves. They were not all from one homogeneous people; they identified as members of different tribes, and they fought and conquered one another for land, property, slaves, and power. Their battles were brutal.

By the time that Cortes arrived at the Yucatan Peninsula, the migrations had reached through the Americas. The Mayans had suffered defeat at the hands of the Aztecs who inhabited central Mexico. The Mayans welcomed the Spaniards, thinking that they were gods—armor, horses and weapons, and also allies in battling the Aztecs when they learned that the Spaniards planned to attack the Aztecs for their gold.

But one must also ask, who had extracted the gold from the mines? Could they have been the slaves captured from other indigenous tribes conquered by the Aztecs prior to the arrival of the White Man? Definitively, yes, according to historians.

In a Twitter exchange between Senator Ted Cruz and Ilhan Omar, Cruz schooled Omar with these words: “As an ‘indigenous person’ myself, I am amused by the left’s cherry-picking of history. My people, the Choctaw, were in a constant state of war with other nations, prior to European colonization of North America. My tribe also owned slaves and fought for the Confederacy in the Civil War, and instead of a rebuke, we get cradle-to-grave free health care at the expense of taxpayers. If Columbus hadn’t stumbled across Hispaniola, Cuba and the Americas, someone else would have. Discovery of the region by European nations was inevitable, as were the diseases and innovations they brought with them. My region in Oklahoma was a battlefield before a single European ever set foot on the continent. Some tribes in the area, prior to the Indian Removal Act, beheaded some of their enemies and captured others as slaves.”

Those clear descriptions do not fit the narrative of the Leftists. Maybe even the modern history curricula in our schools do not match history as much as they align with the 1619 project. D’Souza observes “…Columbus has metamorphosed from a grand crusader into a genocidal maniac and a precursor to Hitler. American Indians are now beyond reproach, canonized as moral and ecological saints.”

It appears that the riots are not really about the death of a black man on May 25th. It appears that BLM, Antifa and now AIM found a moment that afforded them an opportunity to attack Western civilization and realize its destruction. What will follow? Anarchy just as with primitive cultures. We are living the dark side of Humanity.
