Until America addresses the REAL PROBLEMS and stops telling Black Americans that “They are Oppressed, victims of the evil White Man” we will NEVER fix the problems! THIS is the “Democrat Plantation”
STOP putting young Black Americans into an inescapable box of self-pity and despair! There is nothing more EVIL than doing this to a young person! It is brainwashing them into failure before they get started in life!
The result of the “Victim Mentality” can be seen across America through young people with no self control or respect for the law, respect for other people or property! Burn, Loot, and Murder because I’m hopeless!
I can act how I want, be a racist towards other people, be violent, be a criminal, be disrespectful as I demand respect etc… ALL BECAUSE I’M A VICTIM and the left has allowed me to break the law based on skin color alone!
It is truly PATHETIC! This behavior is the result of the Left excusing illegal behavior and racist conduct and it will result in the total collapse of society!
Sorry folks, but Black people got to follow the law too! And your success depends on YOU! It is NOT my fault that you made the decisions which put you where you are!And while Police are in serious need of serious REFORMS, I believe the idiot in this video got exactly what she asked for and DESERVED!
Remember the potential re-education of Trump supporters that everyone said was a conspiracy theory? Welp, it turns out (as I said in this article where I “blew someone’s comment on social media out of proportion,”) it’s a fact. So far on a small scale. But having Americans re-educated politically in any way smacks of communism. Particularly problematic is that it’s been done on the taxpayer’s dime.
Defendants in the Jan. 6th Capitol case are being deprogrammed by their own lawyer.
A public defender named H. Heather Shaner, we’re assured by Ryan J. Reilly of the Huffington Post, has no option but to defend the January 6 “attackers” because “who can’t afford their own attorneys, as guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution and as laid out in the Criminal Justice Act.”
But she’s also taking the opportunity to re-educate her clients, so they aren’t racist anymore.
“Reading books and then watching these shows is like a revelation,” Shaner told HuffPost. “I think that education is a very powerful tool … So I gave them book lists and shows that they should watch.”
Shaner said her clients had poor educations and knew very little about the country. Her two female clients took to the task with zeal, Shaner said and got library cards for the first time in their lives.
“Both my women are like, ‘I never learned this in school. Why don’t I know about this?’” Shaner said. (A couple of the male clients weren’t quite as eager students, she said. “The men are very much like ‘Oh, I’ll get to it.’” But she said some of her male clients have been doing some self-education.) (source)
S0, if I understand this correctly, those poor dumb hick women just needed someone to help them see the error of their ways and introduce them to the joy of the public library, but the men refused to be womansplained to?
And how was this case race-related? It was purely political.
Shaner represents six of more than 500 Capitol defendants: Anna Morgan-Lloyd, Annie Howell, Jack Jesse Griffith (aka Juan Bibiano), Israel Tutrow, and Landon Kenneth Copeland.
What’s on the reading/movie list?
Shaner’s re-education program points out many of the worst moments in history (not just American history) to convince these white folks they have been racist. The program suggests the Capitol protest (even though it was based on what many believe to be a fixed election) happened due to their inherent racism.
Different political views? Get ready to face persecution.
While one of the books mentioned was not set in the United States, most will agree the rest showcase some low points in American history. However, when combined and forced upon a client by an attorney to “reform” them, it seems to be the beginning of another low point in America – the persecution of those guilty of having a different political opinion.
It assumes all Trump supports are actively racist and therefore need to be shown the error of their ways.
While Huffington Post cheers the actions of Shaner, not everyone agrees that the indoctrination of clients the government pays one to defend is an acceptable course of action.
Note:It would be as challenging to contest American Greatness as unbiased as it would be Huffington Post. So let me be clear when I say both of these sources have their own political agendas. But here, we like to take a look at both sides of the issue.
Let’s take a look at the other side of this.
Small newspapers across the country widely picked up an article written by Julie Kelly for the website American Greatness. Kelly wrote a powerful argument about the danger of Shaner’s actions. Here are a couple of excerpts:
Shaner’s legal captives are learning the hard way what the government will do when one resists their commands to comply. Not only have their personal lives been shattered, finances depleted, and reputations destroyed by an abusive Justice Department investigation, Shaner’s clients must be indoctrinated with leftist propaganda about America’s alleged systemic racism.
The purge of the populist mindset is underway, courtesy of the fetid Beltway judicial system and the Joe Biden regime. Judges routinely lecture January 6 defendants about the wrongthink of a “stolen election” while prosecutors openly mock their political beliefs, including homeschooling and gun ownership…
…On the face of it, there’s nothing wrong with watching or reading any of Shaner’s “booklist.” What is very wrong is a taxpayer-paid attorney—one who is supposed to fight the government’s charges related to January 6, not play along with its phony depiction that “white supremacists” attacked the Capitol—using her authority to reprogram the political views of people she is supposed to be defending. The presumption of racist beliefs is automatic. (source)
You support who? You must be racist.
Anyone who supported Trump – no – let me rephrase that – anyone who did not emphatically denounce Trump – was deemed “crazy” and “racist.” By the very nature of their political beliefs, conservatives are looked down upon by tech giants, the mainstream media, and our government. And, this has been the case ever since Trump announced his run for the presidency.
Thinking outside the far leftist box is akin to treason, and people who do so are now being treated like traitors in a country that was founded on freedom of thought.
Politically correct prosecution?
Kelly cites Joshua Rothstein, the assistant U.S. attorney handling one of Shaner’s cases, who said, “We don’t prosecute people based on their beliefs.”
But we all know that’s not really true…
More than 500 people involved in the protest-turned-riot on January 6 were diligently hunted down like dogs. Family members and “friends” proudly snitched on them and they are being systematically prosecuted with a range of charges.
Then we have the destruction that took place in Minneapolis, in which the city sustained over $500 million in damage. Only 14 people were charged with arson, despite dozens of fires. “91 others are facing state felony charges for looting. Hennepin County prosecutors have charged 35 people, mostly with third-degree burglary. Another 56 are facing charges in Ramsey County. One man, Jaleel Stallings, 28, of St. Paul, is accused of attempted murder for allegedly shooting at police on Lake Street on May 30.” (source)
Disney is pushing critical race theory on employees through a new plan called “Reimagine Tomorrow.” The program urges workers to recognize their “white privilege” in a battery of training modules on topics such as “systemic racism” and “white fragility,” according to internal documents obtained by City-Journal’s Christopher Rufo.
Staffers are told to reject “equality” for “equity.” They must “reflect” on America’s “racist infrastructure” and “think carefully about whether or not [their] wealth” is derived from racism, according to the documents. (source)
If we’re fighting against each other, we can’t stand up beside each other.
That, of course, is the goal. It’s “othering” at its finest, and it sets us up for civil war or the quiet disappearance of conservative views.
People have been put in a difficult place. Speak up, and you’re likely to lose your job. Disagree, and you’re deemed a heinous racist, homophobic, or some other flavor of bigot. That’s what cancel culture is all about – silencing anyone who dissents with the threat of social and financial destruction. The deprogramming of Trump supporters and the re-education of white people to believe we owe penance to every person of other races is dangerously divisive.
I’m not a huge government supporter, preferring instead to govern myself. However, our government was designed to have checks and balances to keep the pendulum from swinging too far to one side. Currently, that system is being overridden, and re-education is just the start.
Editor’s note: This is the first in a series Frontpage is running on Racist Mayors. See subsequent parts below this article.
Shortly after 9 p.m. on the night of May 24, a 17-year-old black youth named Keyshawn Williams was standing on a sidewalk along Chicago’s South Oakley Boulevard when someone in a silver BMW opened fire and killed him in a drive-by shooting.
The night before that, a 25-year-old African American named Ladell Arnold was riding in a vehicle along West Flournoy Street in Chicago at 7:10 p.m. when he was shot and killed by a nearby gunman.
The night before that, a 46-year-old black man named Johnnie Williams was standing on a sidewalk along Chicago’s South Michigan Avenue at 7:30 p.m. when some people riding in two passing vehicles shot him dead while also wounding two others.
And at 11:50 p.m. the night before that, a 15-year-old black boy named Dajon Gater was on the front porch of a West Lexington Street house in Chicago, when two armed males approached and killed him with a gunshot to the head.
Like four tiny grains of sand among many thousands in an hourglass, the names of these four dead victims blend imperceptibly into the long list of African Americans whose lives in recent years have been snuffed out by other blacks in the killing field known as Chicago. During the past 12 months alone, more than 820 people have been victims of homicide in The Windy City. And most of them were blacks killed by other blacks.
Of course, you’ve never before heard of any of the four individuals cited above – nor will you ever come across their names again – for the simple reason that none of their deaths can be traced to the actions of a white police officer – or to the actions of any white person at all, for that matter. Thus, there will be no Black Lives Matter protest marches held in their honor; no $25,000 celebrity-funded golden caskets eternally encasing their bodies in the grave; and no gaggle of reporters or “civil rights leaders” repeatedly recounting, with pained and pious countenances, the tragic stories of how these four individuals died, far too young, in America’s third largest city. No, the only words publicly memorializing these four people will be the names etched silently on their tombstones.
The chief political executive of the hell hole called Chicago is Lori Lightfoot, the latest in an unbroken, 90-year line of exclusively Democrat mayors extending all the way back to 1931. Under Lightfoot’s stewardship, homicides in Chicago increased by an astonishing 40 percent from 2019 to 2020 – a pattern that was seen in a host of Democrat-run cities after George Floyd’s death a year ago. And Chicago’s stratospheric homicide rate has continued well into 2021.
In light of the fact that violent death has become a way of life in Lightfoot’s Chicago, it was nothing short of remarkable to hear her recently announce that “on the occasion of the two-year anniversary of my inauguration as mayor of this great city,” she would be “prioritizing media requests from POC reporters,” an acronym meaning “people of color” — rather than prioritizing the urgent need to get the city’s murder rate under control. Chicago political reporter Mary Ann Ahern confirmed that according to the mayor’s spokeswoman, “Lightfoot is granting 1 on 1 interviews only to Black or Brown journalists.”
Lightfoot was more than eager to defend her clearly articulated intent to separate reporters into two separate classes, the preferred (nonwhite) and the non-preferred (white). Like the Black Lives Matter racists who felt wholly justified in terrorizing hundreds of American cities and towns last year, Lightfoot is more than proud to display her own particular brand of racism like a badge of honor. In a two-page letter to the media, she wrote that her decision to deny interview requests from white reporters was based on her commitment to “fight for diversity and inclusion,” “break up the status quo” that has been “failing so many,” and pay homage to the “historic reckoning” by which the nation has recently been forced to confront its own “systemic racism” and its “deep-seated legacies around institutionalized racism.” Lamenting “the overwhelming whiteness and maleness of Chicago media outlets,” Lightfoot wrote: “It’s a shame that in 2021, the City Hall press corps is overwhelmingly White in a city where more than half of the city identifies as Black, Latino, AAPI [Asian American / Pacific Islander] or Native American.”
“At the two-year anniversary of my inauguration,” Lightfoot told the press, “I am issuing a challenge to you. Hire reporters of color – especially women of color – to cover Chicago politics, and City Hall in particular. If you have only a white reporter covering City Hall, make sure there’s a person of color working with them as well.” In short, Mayor Lightfoot feels justified in dictating to private media companies exactly how they should allocate their limited financial resources, and whom they should hire to do which jobs. As is invariably the case with self-identified leftwing warriors for “racial justice,” the spirit of totalitarianism burns bright and hot in the heart of Lori Lightfoot.
Nor is racial obsession anything new for Mayor Lightfoot. She’s very comfortable with it. Indeed, just three months ago Lightfoot proudly announced that “a racial healing and historical reckoning” initiative known as the Chicago Monuments Project, which the city had launched six months earlier to confront the “hard truths of Chicago’s racial history,” had determined that no fewer than 41 separate statues and monuments situated in various locations across the city could be subject to removal from the public square because they: (a) “promot[e] narratives of white supremacy”; (b) “memorializ[e] individuals with connections to racist acts, slavery and genocide”; (c) presen[t] selective, over-simplified, one-sided views of history”; and (d) do “not sufficiently include[e] other stories, in particular those of women, people of color and themes of labor, migration and community building.” The purportedly offensive statues and monuments include those erected in honor of such notables as Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, Ulysses S. Grant, Benjamin Franklin, William McKinley, Leif Ericson, the French missionary Jacques Marquette, and the cartographer Louis Jolliet.
“This project is a powerful opportunity for us to come together as a city to assess the many monuments and memorials across our neighborhoods and communities—to face our history and what and how we memorialize that history,” Lightfoot said. This was particularly important, the mayor emphasized, in light of “the past year and in particular the past summer that made clear [that America’s racist] history isn’t past.”
The standards by which Mayor Lightfoot is prepared to pass judgment on the alleged moral deficiencies of historical giants and national heroes, stand in stark contrast to the standards by which she judges modern-day leftists.
Consider, for instance, how Lightfoot, in the early days of her mayoralty two years ago, gleefully celebrated the passage of Illinois’ so-called Reproductive Health Act (RHA), which repealed the state’s Partial Birth Abortion Ban Act; removed restrictions on late-term abortions and on the imposition of criminal penalties against physicians who perform them; and expanded insurance coverage for abortion procedures. When the RHA initially cleared the state’s Human Services Committee and was sent to the full Illinois House for consideration, Lightfoot issued a statement saying, “I applaud the legislators who voted yes tonight on the passage of the Reproductive Health Act…. The time is now to ensure that we preserve access to safe, legal abortion in our state. We won’t go backwards.” When the bill was subsequently signed into law by the governor a few weeks later, Lightfoot said: “Today, the state of Illinois sent a clear message that we will protect the fundamental right of residents and expand access to reproductive health care.”
So, Lori Lightfoot’s standard is abundantly clear. Statues honoring white people who made enormous contributions to America and to Western civilization — but who may have been insufficiently militant, by Lightfoot’s reckoning, in fighting to eradicate slavery — should be banned from the public square as punishment for the shortcomings of those individuals. But modern-day leftwing zealots who stand in favor of legalizing the killing of fully formed human beings in the womb – in the noble name of “reproductive rights,” of course – are to be hailed and celebrated as champions of liberty.
Racism has never been acceptable in America during my entire 52 years, and we are NOT starting now!
“Equity” is a code word for Communism. Just like CRT or “Critical Race Theory” is code words for Racism!
You must call these people out for the Communists and Racists they are! Don’t allow the English language to be manipulated by these Tyrannical Cowards! STAND UP TO THE RACISTS & RADICAL COMMUNISTS of America!
Once a year, in January, the U.S. Government asks me to give a day-long presentation to Foreign Service Officers, FBI agents and Justice Department officials on the legal systems of the post-Soviet world to help prepare them for a posting overseas in nations with a legal system that will certainly seem unfamiliar to them. For several years I have included in this, at the request of the MLAT and legal attachés (that is, Justice Department officials who will be liaisons with law enforcement officials in the countries) and the State Department human rights officers, a section entitled “How to Spot a Political Prosecution.”
In the nations of the former Soviet Union, of course, political prosecutions are rampant. This goes back to the Imperial era, but it also has its doctrinal anchoring in Lenin’s attitude about justice. For the Bolsheviks, the idea of neutral and dispassionate justice is all a bunch of sentimental liberal hogwash. As every good Communist knows, justice is a tool of the class and of the party. It is used to bolster the party and its political control over the state. Individuals may therefore be prosecuted because they presented a threat to the rule of the party, or simply because it is politically expedient to do so. The trial of the great poet Joseph Brodsky, from which I quoted yesterday, is a paradigm case which I used to teach in some of my seminars. With the collapse of communism and the adoption of liberal democratic models across the region, however, these doctrinal positions were rejected. Of course, some traditions are slow to die. And one of the problems faced by American justice officials is the proliferation of requests for assistance in connection with cases that look suspiciously like political persecution. What are the flashpoints to examine in making a determination of whether a case is politically motivated?
It now strikes me that this mode of analysis has some obvious relevance to things going on in the United States. But here are the questions I present for consideration by American Justice officials trying to grapple with the question in a foreign setting:
Identity of the Subject. Is the subject an opposition political figure of some sort? Is he a member of an ethnic or religious minority which the State Department believes faces persecution in the country in question? Even if not a political figure, has the subject criticized the Government or is there reason to believe that he could be harmful to the Government in a political way? Is the subject associated with a political party? Does the subject hold political office? Is the subject seeking election to political office? This is a threshold inquiry. Of course, a person can be an opposition political figure and still commit a crime; he or she has no expectation of immunity by virtue of being in the political opposition.
Nature of the Charges. Some sorts of charges are of an inherently political nature, and some charges go to acts which may be protected conduct under American law which should not be considered criminal. For instance, in this region criminal libel is a frequently charged crime, as is insulting the president. But in the American view, the conduct charged may well be viewed as protected free speech. Similarly, many of the Soviet successor states have a series of “economic crimes” which relate to the Soviet planned-economy past under which simply economic underperformance can be criminalized. With respect to other crimes, you should consider carefully the local law enforcement authority’s pattern of conduct in connection with charging this crime. Is it charged commonly? Are criteria for charging the crime evident? Has the crime been charged regularly in connection with political cases? One recurrent approach involves tax audits and tax charges.
Timing and Circumstances of Criminal Investigations and Charges. Secure information concerning the time line. When was the probe initiated and how did it come to be initiated? Does it comply with established procedures and rules governing investigations? All departures from the rules should be noted. Any investigator may make a mistake, of course, but chronic violations may suggest something else, especially if they consistently prejudice the rights of the target. Consider the parallels between this time line and potentially relevant political events, particularly elections and election campaigns. Charges brought against political candidates during an election cycle are particularly suspect. In several states in this region, certain criminal charges will result in disqualifying a candidate for office. Obviously when charges are brought against an opposition political candidate during an election cycle, this is suspicious. When the Government then seeks the candidate’s disqualification, this is still more suspicious.
Circumstances of Investigation; Arrest and Detention; Media Dealings. When political figures are involved, has an intrusive investigations been conducted? That is, does the investigation appear geared to disrupting the political figure’s work, for instance, as a parliamentarian or local official? Does it appear geared to embarrassing a candidate for election? If the figure was taken into custody and charged, how was this conducted? Was the arrest done in a way designed to maximize publicity and embarrassment for the political figure? Similarly, arrests conducted in the dead of night and at the crack of dawn are historically considered abusive and are associated with totalitarian regimes (as in the Nazi policy “bei Nacht und Nebel,” arrests conducted before dawn to maximize terror on the populace). Was the investigation played out in the media? Was the arrest and announcement of charges hyped in the media? Do media accounts bear any relationship to a political program or campaign which the Government is mounting? Is the allocation of resources and materials for the investigation and prosecution “normal” or commensurate with similarly charged crimes?
Conduct of the Preliminary Investigation. These countries all have a regime of investigatory detention unknown in the United States. The use of investigatory detention is not abusive per se, but attention should be paid to the amount of time spent in the investigatory detention regime. In general after a fixed period, a magistrate must approve the continued detention. Does the detainee have access to counsel? Consider the conditions of the detention facility and the length of detention. During the period of investigatory detention, has the prosecution made statements to the media about the case, suggesting crimes which are being investigated and charges which might be brought?
Conduct of Trial. Has the defendant secured access to counsel. Is the counsel permitted to interview and speak with the accused without a prison guard being present or being otherwise observed? Is the trial open to the public? Is the presentation of evidence open to the public? Has a gag been imposed on the defense counsel? In general, restrictions on access to the media and public should not be considered symmetrically. It is inappropriate for the prosecution to conduct its case in the press because this violates fundamental rules of prosecutorial ethics. Defense counsel generally is accorded much broader latitude in dealing with the press on defense. The conduct of the trial itself should be tested against the rules of criminal procedure of the country in question with a focus on the defendant’s rights. Was there a pattern of abridging or curtailing rights given to the defense in trial? In particular, was the defense precluded from presenting its evidence or its witnesses? Also consider the selection of the trial court and the assignment of the judge to handle the case. Was there any irregularity in connection with venue or judicial assignment? Was the defendant granted freedom pending trial in order to assist in the presentation of his defense? The old Soviet legal standard carried forward in each of these countries matched the U.S. standard, namely, the defendant is entitled to freedom to prepare his case unless he presents a threat to the community or is a flight risk.
Interview of Prosecutors and Defense Counsel. If called to make an assessment as to whether a criminal action is politically motivated, consider paying a call on the prosecutor and defense counsel to discuss the case. In the prosecutor’s presentation of the case, note carefully whether political considerations are articulated at any point. If a prosecutor speaks of a political party or movement as “corrupt” rather than the specific individuals charged, this is extremely telling. Ask the prosecutor whether the case has been coordinated or discussed with Government figures outside of the prokuratura, and whether the prosecutor’s decisions in the case are being controlled or overseen by the Procurator General. Ask the defense counsel whether he/she had full access to the client without being monitored, whether leave was given to present a full defense and whether the defense counsel personally was subjected to any reprisals or threats. Remember that discovery of the sort available in American proceedings is not generally available here, although defense counsel would have access to the prosecutor’s evidentiary file.
State Secrecy. Was state secrecy invoked in any aspect of the case? Why? Did this restrict the right to present a defense in any way? Was state secrecy invoked as a basis for silencing the defendant and his counsel?
Parallel Public Campaigns. Consider carefully whether the prosecution tracks any political campaign which is being run by the Government or the Government party? Is the prosecution being cited as evidence of “corruption” by the opposition? Does the Government appear to have access to the prosecution’s evidence? Does it have prior knowledge that charges will be brought? Is this information used for a political purpose?
Media Coverage. Particularly where the media is controlled or manipulated by the state (this includes almost every country in the region) or aligns itself with the political party which holds the prosecutorial power, consider carefully the tone and tenor of the media coverage. Does the media flavor the criminal case in political tones by stressing for instance the party affiliation of the defendant, by using the word “corrupt” and by generally tendentious reporting? (Suggesting that not just an individual, but “members of party X” are “corrupt”?) Does the media have prior knowledge of criminal investigations, of charges brought, of evidence which will be used? Does the media quote Government officials or prosecutors in connection with pending cases? Conversely, does the media quote the defendant or defense counsel? When the media “tries the case to the public” in advance of the trial, building public sympathy or support for the charges brought, this is a strong indicator of a politically motivated prosecution.
Beyond Guilt and Innocence. It is frequently impossible for an outside observer to form useful views as to the guilt or innocence of the defendant. Moreover, as law enforcement professionals you may be inclined to take the representations made by your local counterparts at face value. You need to approach them with a healthy level of skepticism when political figures are involved. In fact, I would recommend simply disregarding the question of guilt or innocence when you’re trying to form a view about whether a prosecution is politically motivated. These are separate questions. Remember that it is entirely possible both that a subject is guilty of the crime charged and that the prosecution is politically motivated. Remember Attorney General Robert Jackson’s famous statement that in a modern society with a sweeping criminal code, virtually every citizen can be found to have transgressed a criminal law at some point. This is doubly true for formerly totalitarian societies whose criminal law regime is highly intrusive into what Americans would consider the sphere of private conduct. In making this determination, you should be prepared to question the motives and conduct of the prosecutor. Is the prosecutor investigating and acting on a crime, or is the prosecutor “out to get” an individual? The latter case is per se abusive. When the prosecutor is “out to get” an individual as part of a political agenda, the act of prosecution is an assault on democratic institutions. Political considerations would drive whether the United States would publicly question or condemn such acts–this is a decision generally for the ambassador to take jointly with the State Department in Washington–but in any event, U.S. policy would strongly oppose cooperation with or support of a prosecution when there is strong reason to believe it is politically motivated.
Jackson’s view of the prosecutor rigorously detached from politics, who conducts a case without even a suggestion of political motivation, reflects the American ideal. But the post-Soviet space is haunted by a different legacy. The key historical figure is Andrei Januaryevich Vyshinsky, Stalin’s prosecutor. As Arkady Vaksberg wrote in his masterful biography of Vyshinsky, “his prime contributions were that ‘justice’ is flexible depending on what is ‘in the interests of the people,’ and his explanation that the ‘presumption of innocence’ is an abstract liberal legal principle that has a ‘demobilizing, demagnetizing effect … in the fight against crime.’” But Vyshinsky is best known for his use of prosecution as a political tool. Those identified as enemies of the regime could of course simply be liquidated, but Vyshinsky argued, and Stalin accepted, that it was far more efficient to use the criminal justice system to destroy them. They would be accused of both political crimes and the normal garden variety of crimes–petty corruption, for instance. They would be placed under strong pressure to confess their guilt. The pressure included coercive interrogation techniques, but more frequently it involved identifying the target’s family and friends and threatening action against them. Finally, Vyshinsky pioneered the notion of the “show trial” in which the defendant would be brought before the world, a broken and hollow man, to confess his crimes as one act in a longer play in which his crimes would be staged before the world. Through this technique, Vyshinsky argued, he could not only eliminate the opponent, but destroy even the memory of the opponent, limiting the likelihood that an opposition group might form around him.
I hate to sound as if I’m joking, because I’m NOT!
This is book about “Racism” according to it’s author. Well, excuse me, it’s a book on “anti-Racism” according to the author Henry Rogers, AKA “Ibram X. Kendi” who changed his name to peddle open racism in America, and like all other “anti-this and anti-that groups” they are NOT “ANTI” they ARE JUST “Racists!”
Antifa claims to be “Anti-Fascist” as they promote and exercise Fascism and endorse Fascistic acts! Okay, but this guy who has become the Left’s “god of CRT” is a MORON! I’m Not talking about just a little slow, or maybe not too sharp, NO……. This dude is a blatant MORON, an imbecile, a maroon, a snake oil salesman who is full of feces!
Watch the MORON Dr. “Ibram X. Kendi” (AKA Henry Rogers) The OPEN RACIST, WHO ADMITS HATING WHITE PEOPLE IN HIS OWN BOOK, attempt to “Define” the term “Racism.” What was that rule about using a word to define that word? You know like defining <A monkey> “is a monkey like creature who acts like a monkey and does monkey stuff”
You cannot use a word in the definition of the word there “DOCTOR!” This guy is a pathetic MORON! But the entire left worships at his dumb-ass feet! Blind to the FACT that the man don’t even know what Racism is! You can jump ahead to 6:15 if you just want to hear the definition! or type “t=370” at the end of this link.
It’s important to understand that if the military can force all the normal people to quit by requiring insane CRT Training then nobody will remain but Radicals!
I say this is the most dangerous thing America has ever faced! If these radical scumbags can get a majority in our military how long will it be before they are going house to house in America to “Get the imaginary Racists” that their sick and twisted minds have invented after years of CNN & MSNBC Propaganda??? SCARY!
Ibram X. Kendi is really Henry Rogers, a radical professor from the University of Florida, and he cannot even DEFINE the term “Racism” much less teach us all about it! How can you teach about something you cannot define? This moron and his book are everywhere!
Do like Dinesh D’Souza said! Fight these people the way they fight YOU! Watch the next video and learn how!
Guys and Gals… IT’S OUR TURN! Listen to me today and YOU CAN CHANGE THE CORPORATE WORLD OF MARXIST CRAP FOREVER! You have to adopt the tactics used by leftists and you’ll destroy corporate scum!
Cancel these companies distributors, badmouth people who sell their products! Lead demonstrations at stores selling their stuff! Write the corporate scumbags FIRST and tell them why you are about to do what you do! But then DO IT TIRELESSLY! Take THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE WITH YOU!
We really need to organize “action groups” to focus on advertisers and marketers AND ESPECIALLY THE CORPORATIONS THEY MARKET FOR! Get your kids involved! The most effective means is to go where their products are sold and give awful reviews!
Say you bought the product and it sucks, delivery was slow, customer service was non-existent! Learn to MASTER THE CANCEL CULTURE THEY HAVE WEAPONIZED AGAINST YOU!
TURN THE TABLES ON THEM!
And watch Dinesh D’Souza speak about when Costco cancelled his book! LOOK WHAT HAPPENED when his fans did EXACTLY what I’m telling you to do!!! They brought his book back, gave him his own display and made a special place for his new movies!!! it’s below!
Below is just one of several thousand articles saying this Racist is America’s best and only hope!
By no means is this drivel supported here! I’m just pointing it out! This is from the “Millenial Grind” grinding on the brains of children!
I just cut and pasted the nonsenser for you to see, if you want to read it you should go there for sure! It’s a PROPAGANDA CAMPAIGN LIKE MANKIND HAS NEVER SEEN!
The brainwashed masses just love this idiots book it would appear! But I’ll bet you that is another lie just like covid19 was made possible by using MEANINGLESS PCR tests to make it appear like a pandemic, when in fact there was NONE!
In How to Be an Antiracist, Kendi takes readers through a widening circle of antiracist ideas—from the most basic concepts to visionary possibilities—that will help readers see all forms of racism clearly, understand their poisonous consequences, and work to oppose them in our systems and in ourselves.
Kendi weaves an electrifying combination of ethics, history, law, and science with his own personal story of awakening to antiracism.
This is an essential work for anyone who wants to go beyond the awareness of racism to the next step: contributing to the formation of a just and equitable society.

The opposite of racist isn’t “not racist”. It is “anti-racist”.
What’s the difference? One endorses either the idea of a racial hierarchy as a racist, or racial equality as an anti-racist.
One either believes problems are rooted in groups of people, as a racist or locates the roots of problems in power and policies, as an anti-racist.
One either allows racial inequities to persevere, as a racist, or confronts racial inequities, as an anti-racist. There is no in-between safe space of “not racist”.
What’s the problem with being “not racist”? It is a claim that signifies neutrality: “I am not a racist, but neither am I aggressively against racism.”
There is no neutrality in the racism struggle. The opposite of “racist” isn’t “not racist.” It is “antiracist”.
The claim of “not racist” neutrality is a mask for racism.
The good news is that racist and antiracist are not fixed identities. We can be a racist one minute and an antiracist the next. What we say about race, what we do about race, in each moment, determines what — not who — we are.
Black people are apparently responsible for calming the fears of violent cops in the way women are supposedly responsible for calming the sexual desires of male rapists.
Racist ideas love believers, not thinkers.
Americans have long been trained to see the deficiencies of people rather than policy.
Like fighting an addiction, being an antiracist requires persistent self-awareness, constant self-criticism, and regular self-examination.
Denial is the heartbeat of racism, beating across ideologies, races, and nations.
We were unarmed, but we knew that blackness armed us, even though we had no guns.
Assimilationist ideas are racist ideas. Assimilationists can position any racial group as the superior standard that another racial group should be measuring themselves against, the benchmark they should be trying to reach.
The only way to undo racism is to consistently identify and describe it—and then dismantle it.
“Institutional racism” and “structural racism” and “systemic racism” are redundant. Racism itself is institutional, structural, and systemic.
To be antiracist is to think nothing is behaviorally wrong or right- inferior or superior- with any of the racial groups.
To be antiracist is to deracialize behavior, to remove the tattooed stereotype from every racialized body.
Behavior is something humans do, not races do.
The idea that Black languages outside Africa are broken is as culturally racist as the idea that languages inside Europe are fixed.
No one becomes racist or antiracist. We can only strive to be one or the other.
What if we realized the best way to ensure an effective educational system is not by standardizing our curricula and tests but by standardizing the opportunities available to all students?
To be antiracist is to view national and transnational ethnic groups as equal in all their differences.
To be antiracist is to challenge the racist policies that plague racialized ethnic groups across the world.
To be antiracist is to view the inequities between all racialized ethnic groups as a problem of policy.
Culture defines a group tradition that a particular racial group might share but that is not shared among all individuals in that racial group or among all racial groups.
Every policy in every institution in every community in every nation is producing or sustaining either racial inequity or equity between racial groups.
Every single person actually has the power to protest racist and antiracist policies, to advance them, or, in some small way, to stall them.
Individual behaviors can shape the success of individuals. But policies determine the success of groups. And it is racist power that creates the policies that cause racial inequities.
Which quote from How to Be an Antiracist by Ibram X. Kendi is your favorite?
It amazes me that a man who cannot define the term “Racist” can write 20 Racist books on the subject!
Folks, there is nowhere on Earth the people pushing this radical, racist, ignorant theory based in Marxism called CRT should feel safe!
People like this scumbag should have every person selling their material inundated with negative comments, complaints, letters to corporate scumbags, letter to stores and bookstores etc…. But most importantly the negative comments on the pages selling this filth!
Claim you bought it and it sucks, the quality was poor, the theory wrong, and it took months to get it!!!
If you see grocers selling the book LOAD A BASKET FULL OF GROCERIES and pretend to notice the “offensive” & “Racist” book, tell the manager you will no longer shop at a place that sells this TRASH!
Create a group of “Action Warriors” to go after corporate scum the way the left has gone after YOU and Conservatives in general! You should be wortking the product pages of these people! Work the physical buildings too!
The US Military has forced members to attend training sessions authored by Racist twits like this!

Petition to Remove Admiral Michael Gilday as Chief of Naval Operations
Tue Jun 22, 2021
Our military is under attack by “anti-racism” activists whose message is that white America is racist.
“Critical Race Theory” is the academic discipline that is used to justify the attack. Critical Race Theory is a hateful Marxist fiction that maintains America is evil because the majority of its citizens are white, and that its Constitution is evil because it was written by white people. The agents of this dogma, including those lecturing at the Naval War College, teach that white people – from the Founding Fathers to the 200 million white people in the country today – are oppressors, who are an internal enemy,
Critical Race Theory began by destroying the moral integrity of colleges and corporations. Now its target is the U.S. Navy.
Chief of Naval Operations Admiral Michael Gilday has told the third of a million naval personnel that they should be reading and learning from Ibram X. Kendi, a mediocre, fact-challenged university professor who has become the go-to “anti-racism” expert for America’s woke elites.
In a congressional hearing, Admiral Gilday was asked by Representative Jim Banks to denounce Kendi’s view that white people are criminals – that they created the AIDS virus to kill black people. The Admiral refused to do so, dismissing it as a “cherry picked” quote about which he had no other opinion.
By adding Ibram X. Kendi’s book – How To Be An Anti-Racist – to the Navy’s Professional Reading Program, Gilday put the weight of the U.S. Navy behind Kendi’s hatred of white America and all white people as the allegedly racist oppressors of blacks.
Kendi defines anti-racism as opposition to America’s “systemic racism.” Systemic racism was outlawed by the Civil Rights Act of 1964. If it were an actual problem there would be a tsunami of lawsuits and a tsunami of judgments awarding millions of dollars in penalties to the victims. There are no such tsunamis because systemic racism is a myth manufactured by leftists to disarm their critics and force their retreat. In Kendi’s dogma, the only way not to be a racist is to agree with him that racism is in America’s DNA, and white people are racists because they are white.In Kendi’s own words: “There is no such thing as a not-racist idea, only racist ideas and antiracist ideas.” Either you agree with Kendi’s leftwing politics, or you’re a racist.Gilday was not only endorsing Kendi’s racism, but also his politically partisan agenda, which claims ridiculously that dissent from the left is racist even when it comes to global warming.“Do-nothing climate policy is racist policy,” Kendi argues, “since the predominantly non-White global south is being victimized by climate change more than the Whiter global north.”But the world’s greatest polluters are China, India, and Pakistan . – countries that are not white, and that refuse to implement the Paris Climate Accords.Gilday’s support for Kendi is part of his effort to divide and weaken the Navy by imposing Critical Race Theory and radical Identity Politics on the men and women who defend us. Last year Gilday promoted “conversations” that endorsed Black Lives Matter’s view that all whites are racists and encouraged recruits and naval officers to believe that, like America, the navy is systemically racist – no evidence required. According to Gilday-Kendi, life for black people is miserable in America, and white people have to be “transformed” by atoning for their white skin privilege . “White Skin Privilege is, in fact, a term invented by the Weather Underground: a notorious terrorist group which bombed the Pentagon in the 1970s.An official Navy video introduced by Gilday featured a black aviation tech complaining that, “being African-American in America is not fun;” a black lieutenant commander who claimed that he had experienced “systemic racism” and “implicit bias”, and a white female musician confessing her “privilege as a white person” and attacking America over unfounded claims of “systemic racism”The video of Navy personnel putting down America, blaming their problems on systemic racism, and reciting Marxist talking points was the centerpiece of what Gilday called vital “conversations” about racism. Usually, a conversation has more than one side. But not in today’s U.S. Navy which has become a Critical Race Theory echo chamber.While the theme of Gilday’s racial crusade is, “One Team, One Navy”, its real message is that there are two navies and two Americas: white and non-white. The goal of the admiral’s new “diversity and inclusion” mandate is for the victimized non-white Navy to defeat the oppressive and racist white Navy. Or as one crew member in the video declares, “Tomorrow’s Navy will finally stand on the right side of history when we realize that black lives matter.” Considering that the latest ethnic genocide, involving millions of Uighur Muslims, is taking place in a non-white nation, China, today, it would be interesting to know what “the right side of history” is, or whether history has a side.An official video sponsored by Gilday, broadcasts the anti-American claim that the 245-year-old Navy has been on the wrong side of history, that John Paul Jones, who fought the British, Stephen Decatur, who fought Islamic pirates, and the men who fought on the USS Kearsarge to end slavery during the Civil War, were all on the “wrong side” of history until Gilday and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez came along to set them straight.Please add your name to this petition right away, and demand the Senate remove Chief of Naval Operations Admiral Michael Gilday.
Under Gilday’s leadership, minority members of the Navy are being told that it’s okay to question whether they should be serving their country. They’re being encouraged to view all of their interactions with white personnel as racist because all white people are inherently racist. Including their commanding officers and their comrades in arms.Communist China could not be damaging the Navy’s readiness any more than Gilday is with his divisive accusations about the racism of the majority of his troops.In the two years since Gilday took over as Chief of Naval Operations, morale is down, and instead of preparing them to fight America’s enemies, he has set off a civil war within his own ranks. China doesn’t need to fire a single shot if Gilday is successful in destroying our military’s cohesion, morale and will to defend the country.Biden is slashing the Navy’s shipbuilding budget even as the People’s Republic of China is building more ships than the U.S. Navy. The United States is losing the command of the seas. While Biden is undermining the physical infrastructure of the Navy, Gilday is waging a relentless war against the moral infrastructure of the service men and women under his command.Gilday and other military leaders are replacing military readiness with military radicalism. Admiral Bill Moran, Gilday’s predecessor and President Trump’s choice, had a reputation for standing up for his people. America First was his guide. Gilday has focused instead on political wokeness and demonizing those who resist his new order.Gilday – a vice admiral – was unqualified for his promotion to Chief of Naval Operations in the first place. He got his job through a political coup.His predecessor, Admiral Moran was forced out over a fake scandal generated by Senator Kirsten Gillibrand. Gilday, a vice admiral, should not have been in line to be Chief of Naval Operations, but Democrat politicians and bureaucrats were determined to purge as many of President Trump’s appointments as they could. Their goal was to undermine his America First policies. They were so successful that no one qualified to be Chief of Naval Operations actually wanted it.As Chief, Gilday quickly showed why the same people who persecuted Moran left him alone. The men and women of the Navy can rely on Gilday to promote Black Lives Matter agendas, but they can’t count on him to watch their backs.Using race as the measure of all things, Gilday unleashed a political indoctrination campaign as the Black Lives Matter riots got underway. Video confessions of white privilege and condemnations of America are the heart and soul of that campaign. He initiated the Task Force One Navy whose report called for reinventing the Navy to fight “racism, sexism, ableism and other structural and interpersonal biases” – perfect Marxist slang for their war on America.White members of the Navy are being told to check their white privilege, to believe that they didn’t earn their ranks, but were awarded them because of systemic racism, and that the more they achieve, the guiltier they are of getting ahead at the expense of disadvantaged minorities.Officers are being told to stop thinking about ability and merit – racist categories – and to focus on meeting racial and gender quotas when it comes to mentoring and promotions. They’re being warned that their judgement is racially biased and that any decision they make will be racist. There is talk of using computer programs to achieve racial quotas for personnel and of subjecting officers to “implicit bias” training which is based on the hateful idea that whites are racists by virtue of their skin color.These are the same poisonous attitudes that destroyed American achievement on college campuses so that China’s educational system now outperforms our own, and racist mediocrities like Ibram X. Kendi become intellectual celebrities. Gilday and his allies are hard at work trying to reward activism over ability, and sow doubt about the merits of any sailor who is white.The Chief of Naval Operations is dividing the men and women of the Navy by skin color and turning them against each other. When you are a 19-year-old deciding whether to risk your young life for your country how does being told by your military commanders that America is a 400-year-old cesspool of white racist oppression help you to make the decision to fulfill your oath to defend that country and its Constitution?Gilday is undermining military readiness in the face of a possible naval conflict with enemies of the United States, especially the increasingly aggressive regime in Communist China.Gilday’s indoctrination program is already a threat to national security and must be terminated before it’s too late. And the best way to do that is for him to resign or be forced to step down.Our national security is at stake.

What we MUST REALIZE is that an attack on 1 of us is an attack on ALL of us!
If you continue to sit idly by as Patriots are having their God-Given, NATURAL RIGHTS violated by government, which are protected under the Constitution……… THEN THEY CAN ARREST US ALL, 1 AT A TIME!
You better get serious minded about that line in the sand folks!
Otherwise we’ll end up JUST LIKE Aleksandr Solzhenitson in his book “The Gulag Archipelago.” They’ll lead us away one at a time to the death camps as we fail to cry out or resist!
In America we have arms, should they continue pressing us and violating our rights, we may be forced to use them in preservation of our own lives and freedoms!
These government scumbags have NO AUTHORITY to violate the laws of this land, But they are doing it anyway!
So a response is going to be needed! You must draw a line in the sand! Government has already crossed mine! And they are doing so using OUR AUTHORITY! The authority YOU gave them with your consent to be governed!
It’s about time that consent is REVOKED!It is about time to declare our independence again!Law enforcement has failed to uphold our laws, yet they have no issue with violating our rights!
If you find no reason for alarm in the last video, you must not be a “white person”
Leftists have spoken about putting Trump supporters into “concentration camps” and “re-education centers” openly on national television! Their rhetoric has become more and more violent and laser focused on white people.
You are literally watching the exact same thing that Hitler did to the Jews being done to white Americans! These people are literally dehumanizing the white race in preparation for a mass “white genocide” exactly like Hitler did to the Jews in Germany!
In a country where the rule of law is intact, statements such as this would get you arrested and perhaps prosecuted and jailed! Unfortunately, in America the “Rule of Law” seems to be DEAD! We have a Federal Law Enforcement apparatus that protects the leftist criminals, as they arrest innocent people because they voted for Trump or are Conservative or white!
There are literally hundreds of innocent Americans in DC right now being held in solitary confinement, and have been since January 6th. These people were essentially arrested for attending a Trump Rally!
The video evidence shows that BLM and Antifa infiltrated the Trump Rally and caused the damage at the capital, and they allowed these people in the capital! They spoke to the police and only entered the capital with permission! But they are being treated as if they are “insurrectionists.”
I’d have to argue that the only insurrectionists are on the left in Congress and Antifa and BLM who burned down half the country for a year straight! These people have evidently devised another mass genocide like Germany committed against the Jews, only this time they plan to eliminate whites!
If government is too corrupt to uphold the laws of this country we need to speak to our states about calling out the National Guard to prevent mass bloodshed in our streets! I have a sneaking suspicion that white Americans are NOT going to lay down and allow these radicals to murder them like the Jews were murdered!
It is time to stop playing games and get a handle on the criminal element which has operated unopposed in America for over 1 1/2 years now before it leads to a hot civil war!
I’ve put together a couple of very relevant discussions on Marxism and Critical Race Theory that are absolutely needed to hold an intelligent discussion about either! Please read and watch the following videos and share them wherever you can! Take the advice in the videos! It’s some of the best I’ve seen! Most importantly is stay in the fight!
No Way does American’s accept CRT and Marxism in America! Both of these totalitarian systems are far inferior to the system America has always had and under no circumstances do we change for the worst!!! NO WAY!!!
You need to SHOW UP to school Board meetings, and run for a position on the school boards!!!
You need to SHOW UP to your state capital and to any corporation or institution trying to force these inferior principles on American citizens! You have simply got to get out of your “Safe Space” and make your voice heard!
Lastly, and the most important thing.. SUE! Sue government, sue corporations, sue schools and colleges, and sue ANYONE ELSE trying to force people to attend indoctrination at anti-white, racist “Diversity Training Sessions!”
SUE!It is time to challenge these totalitarian ideologies in courtrooms! Free Speech is your right, protected under the Constitution! It is a God-Given, natural right specifically protected by our Constitution!SUE!
The swear words “Marxist” and “revolutionary” are now thrown around by conservatives, such as those at Heritage, the New York Post, and Fox News, with the same abandon with which the left speaks about “human rights” or “marriage,” particularly in relation to the concept of Critical Race Theory (CRT). But as someone who has studied Marxism extensively, I believe it’s necessary to state that CRT is most definitely not Marxist, nor is it in any sense revolutionary. Instead, it is an instrument of repression brandished by those in power against those whom it is feared might resist them, and those labeling this instrument as Marxist misdiagnose the problem to their detriment.
An ideology does not become Marxist because it launches an attack on white Americans for being white, or on white men as intrinsically evil human beings. Nor is feminism a form of Marxism because it attacks gender differences or the assignment of distinctive social roles to men and women. One does not change established meanings by assigning one’s own invented descriptions to whatever the media and academics decide to extend them to. Marriage is between men and women, even if the state decides to extend marriage licenses to homosexual pairs and throws pastors in jail for disagreeing with this policy. Likewise, something does not become Marxist simply because it is socially dangerous and features the term “struggle.”
True Marxism focuses on socioeconomic distinctions and the struggle by which the working-class overthrows and replaces the bourgeoisie and establishes a socialist economy, presumably by force. It has nothing to do with downgrading whites, heterosexuals, or males, and even less with supporting transgender activists in combat with cisgender bigots. It must fit other criteria than these cultural issues in order to be genuinely Marxist; and the advocates of CRT do not escape this labeling problem by claiming to have come up with a more advanced form of Marxist ideology while rejecting “vulgar Marxism.”
It is the “vulgar,” or more traditional form of Marxism which is the only real one. Transgender crusaders or black nationalists going after “prejudiced” Americans or destroying their property have nothing to do with a Marxist class struggle, as understood by Karl Marx and his socialist followers. Nor do AOC or other members of her Squad calling for higher taxes together with the teaching of CRT make them true Marxists. If anyone thinks Joe and Kamala are going to inflict huge pain on the corporations that brought them to power, that person is suffering from self-delusion “bigly,” as the Donald used to say. Mark Zuckerberg, Jack Dorsey, Jeff Bezos, and the corporate managers of American Airlines and Coca Cola do not have to worry about being expropriated in an American Marxist revolution carried out by the Biden administration.
The intersectional left has gained social control because it is allied to government administrators and corporate oligarchs, a fact which both political commentator Pedro Gonzalez and I have written about. Yet this power constellation is no more revolutionary than the sclerotic Soviet nomenklatura that fell with the dissolution of the Soviet empire. These oligarchs pulled out all stops to get rid of the Trump interregnum and are now making sure that no effective opposition remains to combat their rule. Gonzalez is correct that what we are witnessing is the ruling class striking back.
Racial strife is a way of achieving this end of rooting out opposition, and that strife occurs by deploying black nationalists and other grievance-mongers against what I refer to as “normal people.” Moreover, with help from the media, corporations, and government officials, the “black revolutionaries” seem to be prevailing. They may even be given a share of power, which Biden is divvying up with black Democrats, like his CRT-intoxicated Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, and black racialist Kirsten Clark, whom the president’s advisers earmarked as the Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Rights Division.
But black activists are not in charge of this arrangement. They provide the front for those already in power to tighten their hold on the rest of us. The oligarchs may shift their favor from one group of grievance-mongers to another but that does nothing to seriously change the distribution of power.
What does pose a serious problem for the oligarchs and administrators are the raw emotionality and inherent conflicts among the groups they have weaponized. Why should we think that Muslim Fundamentalists, Black Lives Matter, feminists, and LGBT activists are united by more than a shared enemy, personified in the hated Deplorables? Is there anything else that holds this coalition together, other than hate, the availability of corporate money, and support from the Deep State?
Furthermore, in their eagerness to keep their motley crew of haters behind them, the electronic media giants commit massive indiscretions. New York Post columnist Bethany Mandel has justifiably scolded Twitter for abetting anti-Semitism on the left. The tech giants have kept open their services to the most outrageous “purveyors of Jew hate” after arbitrarily cancelling Trump and many of his fans. Mandel cites examples of anti-Semitic outbursts that would have seemed appropriate for the Nazi Ministry of Propaganda. This may underscore a difficulty that besets the ruling class: to keep its hateful mobs behind it, it trades in hate. This is entirely obvious in the way Critical Race Theory is designed to denigrate an entire race, which has nothing to do with traditional Marxism.

A new wave of censorship has arisen in the United States propelled by the January 2021 Capitol Riot and building upon “anti-racism” activism that arose in the Summer of 2020. In higher education, this has taken the form of new policies to limit criticism of various critical and Woke studies programs, as well as efforts to curtail academic freedom for faculty, teaching, and research deemed “racist.” Join us on May 6th at 1 pm ET as NAS board member and Oregon chapter head Dr. Bruce Gilley, Portland State University colleague Dr. Peter Boghossian, and Oregon Senator Dennis Linthicum discuss a new Oregon Association of Scholars report and accompanying video entitled “The New Censorship in American Higher Education: Insights from Portland State University.”
Save the above graphic and arm every American you can with it! The most diabolical thing about CRT and Marxism is that they are manipulating our language in a way where their sick and twisted, anti-white racist views cannot be challenged without you looking like the racist instead of the true racists………..The ones pushing CRT!
You have to learn to defeat their illogical logic!
(Natural News) The only group of people that it’s politically correct to hate and throw racial slurs at in 2018 is white people. And it’s fake news outlets like The New York Times that are leading the charge in institutionalizing this anti-white racism by hiring racist scum like Sarah Jeong.
During a recent episode of The Alex Jones Show that aired at Brighteon.com, Jones talks with Brandon Tatum from Turning Point USA about the modern double standard that sees all forms of racism as being evil, except racism against whites.
“There is no way on planet earth that what this young lady did would be acceptable if she said any of that about black people,” says Tatum, a former SWAT and police officer with black skin who advocates for conservative ideals.
“It’s not acceptable to say that about white people. But what I’m saying is the double standard that they have on the left. You can openly hate police officers, you can openly call for the death of police officers and hate white people, as much as you want, as long as it’s on the left. And what they do is they use propaganda to justify the hatred.”
Leftists are modern-day Nazis
What’s ironic about this type of behavior by the left is that it’s exactly what the Nazis did in Germany prior to World War II. The Nazis manipulated the minds of the public to believe that those they were persecuting were guilty of the things that they themselves were actually guilty of – which is exactly what leftists do today in condemning the right.
“They want to call us Nazis, they want to call us racists, to then be justified in hating us and wanting to kill us,” says Tatum.
“And these people are literally using brainwashing tactics to put people back on the proverbial plantation – not just black people, not just white people, everybody. They want everybody to be under their foot, they want to control everything at the top, and they want us subject to that. It’s the same thing the Nazis did, it’s the exact same thing being played out in America today.”
#WalkAway is about EVERYONE leaving the leftist plantation
This is why many former liberals are walking away as part of the #WalkAway movement. They recognize that modern-day liberalism is about top-down control, and not about freedom. It’s about harboring hatred and “tribalism” against those who disagree, while falsely accusing others of doing what you’re doing.
This is why the Democratic Party is in shambles: because it’s become a party of hate, intolerance, and utter insanity. Many people are choosing to go the conservative route because they recognize that it’s a movement of unity, regardless of one’s race or skin color.
“It’s Christianity that gets us past tribalism,,” Jones contends, revealing how blacks, whites, and everyone in between can be active participants in the conservative movement. “Christianity is where you say, I have a set of values, and I believe in the same God, and that’s what unifies us.”
What’s more ironic is that this was the message embodied by Martin Luther King Jr., whom the left has claimed for themselves even though his message is diametrically opposed to what leftists now advocate.
“This is like the stuff you’d read on Stormfront about Jews,” Jones adds about the rhetoric of Jeong, whom leftists are embracing with open arms. “This is literally like the worst KKK stuff from the ’30s, but turned around on white people.”
If you have paid attention at all you’ve seen the striking similarities between the Leftists and the Nazi Party! I have been pointing this out for some time now! The Left is NOT vilifying the Jews like the Nazis did though, they are using “White People” as the Jews in this Holocaust!
I simply find it hard to believe that lawmakers have done nothing to stem the tide of hatred coming from these people’s mouths! Whites would be fully justified if they declared actual WAR against these people who ARE trying to have them killed at the hands of radicals who have been brainwashed by their Propaganda!
Because quite simply, I WON’T sit around and wait to be murdered by some moron brainwashed by the mainstream media! It is time to take action! It’s time to SUE! You see the violence these people have created EVERY DAY in the real world! Yet NOBODY CHARGES THEM for the violence THEY ARE GUILTY OF INCITING!
Which takes us back to what I speak about daily, federal law enforcement Agencies who are not upholding the law “Equally and Fairly” but instead they FAIL TO PROSECUTE LEFTISTS as they throw conservatives in prison for trespassing! I don’t have the answers, but a good start would be filing a multi-million dollar lawsuit against the Department of Justice, the FBI, and every other federal agency guilty of these practices!
It is time that Federal Law Enforcement DO THEIR JOB or pay out!!!
I pointed this out last week after watching Shelby Steele’s “Who killed Michael Brown?” (A film I highly recommend) Barrack Hussein #Obama IS RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL THE RACIAL DIVISION IN THE US TODAY! He and Eric Holder made a national case that Michael Brown was killed because of #Racism!
The problem with their case is that Michael Brown was NOT killed because of Racism! He was killed because he attacked a police officer out of the blue, and continued attacking the officer until the officer SHOT HIM DEAD (Just as he DESERVED!)
They have re-written history and with the help of the #Propaganda spewing #Media (Which should be BANNED because they do NOTHING BUT LIE, they have convinced low information Americans that some sort of Racist environment exists in America. When in fact it’s ALL A LIE!
Obama, Eric Holder, and media personalities SHOULD ALL BE CHARGED WITH #SEDITION! Theirs was an organized, deliberate effort to subvert the country! To CREATE Racism where there was NONE! If there were ANY JUSTICE IN AMERICA They would ALL BE IN PRISON because they ARE GUILTY OF SEDITION!
Here is an article from American Thinker discussing just that! Enjoy and SHARE!

For nearly 50 years, until 2009, the United States experienced enormous progress in race relations. Thanks to the efforts of individual citizens in their communities and not the nation’s ruling elites and patronizing liberals, this country was well on its way to racial healing. In 2008 only 18% of all Americans were greatly concerned or worried about the state of race relations in the country. By 2017 that number had skyrocketed to 45%. Further, in 2008 66% of Americans thought race relations were good; by 2016, 63% thought race relation were bad. The common denominator in this freefall and primary instigator of the current societal chaos and national uncertainty: Barack Obama.
As President and a man of African descent, Barack Obama was in a position to permanently mend fences and end the exploitation of racial politics bubbling beneath the surface. In fact, the American people, in particular the African American community, were confident that race relations and opportunities for minorities would improve during an Obama presidency. A CBS poll taken just before the 2008 election indicated that 47% of Blacks and 29% of Whites thought race relations would improve while 42% of Blacks and 48% of Whites thought it would remain the same. Only 7% of Blacks thought that Obama would make matters worse.
However, true to his Marxist upbringing and indoctrination in Critical Race Theory, he created and exploited racial tension for political objectives and monetary gain for him and his fellow travelers.
Barack Obama and virtually all of his black and white collaborators on the left view the African American population as both useful pawns in their insatiable quest for self-aggrandizement, financial benefit and political power, as well as helpless minions to be paraded about and bought off whenever convenient to the overriding political, societal or self-serving cause.
In August of 1963, as a college student in Washington D.C., I participated in the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, the highlight of which was the “I Have a Dream” speech by Martin Luther King. Thereafter and for a couple of years I became involved in the Civil Rights Movement.
During this period of time, I noticed that a sizable majority of the white volunteers from northern and western states (and African Americans also from northern and western states) fell into two categories insofar as their motivation to participate in the movement.
The first, and most driven by ideology, were the hard-core leftists who viewed the black proletariat as potential foot soldiers and a gullible constituency to be manipulated into aiding them in overturning the government and establishing a socialist Nirvana.
The second, were white liberals who perceived participation in the Civil Rights Movement to be the latest in-thing while essentially viewing African Americans as a population to be ceremoniously pitied, patted on the head and made dependent mascots so these pompous narcissists could wallow in their self-righteousness.
My involvement in the movement ended when it became clear that by the mid- to late-1960’s the Civil Rights Movement and anti-Vietnam War crusade had both been hijacked by the radical left in order to legitimize and mainstream their anti-American Marxist movement.
At the same time, black militant groups such as the Black Panthers, the Nation of Islam and the Black Nationalist Movement were on the rise. They espoused Marxism and the overthrow of American society using supposed irredeemable American racism as the primary tool of revolution. They soon discovered the inherent power of the racism accusation and how so many among the ruling elites and sanctimonious liberals in the white population could be easily intimidated and driven by guilt to acquiesce to monetary and policy demands.
Over time it became clear to both branches of American Marxism, the hard left faction and the black radicals, that the path to revolution in the United States lay only secondarily in the centuries-old tactic of class warfare and primarily in unending racial politics, and so they unceasingly instigated racial animosity. The primary feature of that strategy was the unconscionable use of the black citizenry as unsuspecting pawns to be manipulated as victims when the circumstances could be exploited for incitement or monetary gain — and their plight ignored when the circumstances could not.
It was inevitable that these two Marx-sympathizing factions would merge. Legitimized and mainstreamed into American society by their anti-Vietnam War and militant civil rights activities, the radical left began successfully infiltrating and dominating the higher education establishment, the entertainment complex and the Democrat party. Within 30-35 years those institutions were essentially controlled by the Marxists. The last step would be the elevation to the presidency of an electable and personable stealth graduate of the movement who would trigger the revolution.
Meanwhile, the white-dominated Ruling Class, in an effort to catch up to what was happening on the ground and in furtherance of their in-bred condescension, opened its ranks to black leaders who were willing to betray their fellow blacks for a place at the table and monetary gain. This alliance resulted in the creation of countless failed welfare and social programs that destroyed the pride and cohesion within what was once a fiercely independent and noble people despite the obstacles placed before them for so much of the nation’s past. Rampant crime, 77% of births to unwed mothers, deliberate ill-education and a loss of self-respect has condemned nearly an entire race to involuntary serfdom dependent on the largess of patronizing liberals both white and black. Thus, a population that can easily be exploited and manipulated.
Despite the racial politics, avarice and megalomania of the ruling elites and radical leftists, the American people, both black and white, took it upon themselves to dramatically confront racism and race relations on a local and community level. By 2008, 77% of all Americans (60% of Blacks) thought that race relations were good in their individual communities.
However, the determination to reverse this trend and instigate racial animosity, manipulate the black citizenry, exploit the credulousness of white liberals and unleash racial opportunism began soon after Barack Obama assumed the presidency and became the titular leader of the Ruling Class. He and his henchmen deliberately set out to fan the dying embers of racism into a national conflagration.
As President, Obama unabashedly and falsely claimed that racism is permanently embedded in America’s DNA (i.e. systemic racism), He never missed an opportunity to pour gasoline on potentially volatile occurrences even if the facts were unknown or totally fabricated. Whether it was his spurious justification of overt voter intimidation by the Black Panthers in Philadelphia, his gratuitous and unfounded criticism of the police in the Henry Louis Gates affair, his inflammatory rhetoric and prejudgments about the Trayvon Martin incident in Florida, the Michael Brown shooting in Ferguson, Missouri or the Freddie Gray episode in Baltimore, among others.
Further, Obama gave his tacit imprimatur to the formation of the Marxist Black Lives Matter organization to exploit and profit off of the pretext that white police officers wantonly killed innumerable unarmed blacks annually. He implicitly sanctioned violence and lawlessness as a means of protest. Obliquely justifying the criminality by claiming that the United States is an irredeemably racist country. He promoted the denigration of and hatred towards the police which has resulted in an 25% increase the number of police officers murdered in the six years since the Ferguson riots versus the prior six years. He effectively espoused blatant racism and discrimination against the white population by promoting radical racist doctrines such as Critical Race Theory, thus, enriching the proponents and his former mentors.
Obama and his fellow-travelers in the Marxist movement within the Ruling Class knew that a substantial share of a pre-conditioned and ill-educated black populace would easily fall prey to this demagoguery and could be counted on to participate in marches and riots while accepting at face value that the United States was a “systemically” racist country. They also knew that the bulk of self-described, and also ill-educated, white liberals, in particular females under 40, seeking relevance and swept up in what they perceive to be a grand crusade of promoting all manner of “civil rights” in a heartless, capitalistic society, would be easily manipulated and not only accept at face value that the United States is a “systemically” racist country but would also participate in marches and riots.
Looking at the landscape of American society today, it not an overstatement to say that Obama’s treachery has, thus far, been wildly successful in creating societal chaos and uncertainty.
The race-induced riots and criminality in the summer of 2020, together with the overt participation of Black Lives Matter and other radical leftist groups in the fraudulent election results, eventuated in the placement of the avowed radicals in the corridors of power and a mendacious befuddled puppet controlled by the Marxists in the White House. Critical Race Theory is rapidly becoming mandatory at all levels of education and is now infecting corporate boardrooms. At present, many Americans ignorantly accept the lie that the nation is systemically racist, therefore, a radical transformation of society is necessary. In order to do so, the following is mandatory: universal censorship of any leftist-defined hate speech, the abrogation of religious freedom, reverse discrimination, the elimination of any political opposition, a dual-tier system of justice and the shredding and de facto replacement of the Constitution.
To the American Marxist movement, the century-old dream of pushing aside their confederates in the current ruling class and assuming near-dictatorial power appears to be in reach.
However, it will not happen. First, as the pre-Obama polls reinforce, this is not a racist country and on a local and community level people of all races know that, and that knowledge is beginning to prevail over transparent racial demagoguery. Second, the radical left will, and are, overreaching, thus opening the eyes of many previously indifferent citizens. Third, the Marxists, through their policy prescriptions, have begun to turn on their self-righteous white liberal allies who will eventually wake up from their desire to be a part of what they obliviously perceive to be the in-crowd. Fourth, the so-called mainstream media, also dominated by these same self-righteous liberals, is in a freefall and is rapidly losing its influence. Lastly, this nation of 330 million people the size of the continent of Europe has a 245-year history of individual freedom and independence that cannot be erased or overcome.
However, the American people must never again fall prey to a glib, personable presidential candidate because of his or her skin color. Barack Obama is not only the worst President in United States history — he is also guilty of sedition.

This post is about the strategy being used by the EVIL PROGRESSIVES trying to take over the PLANET!
If you have been staying on top of the actual news, and NOT listening to mainstream PROPAGANDA CNN, MSNBC, ABC, NBC, CBS, PBS, and FOX then you already KNOW the population of the world is under ATTACK by criminals and Tyrants who seek to control EVERY ASPECT of your life and to STEAL YOUR WEALTH & PROPERTY!
The most intelligent thing we as people can do is to GET OFFLINE and DESTROY YOUR TELEVISIONS!!! GET RID OF YOUR TRACKING/CONTROL DEVICE (Cell phones) Why do you think the government now gives you a cell phone? They are using military technology to control your mood and even your actions! They use it to track you and spy on your conversations! Get a landline and rid yourself of cell phones! STOP using the systems that they are using to subvert and then TAKE your freedom! Cell Phones ARE part of those systems!
Covid-19 is a HOAX VIRUS! If it were not a HOAX as I’ve claimed, then WHY EXACTLY DOES GOVERNMENT NEED TO PAY HOSPITALS TO MAKE A COVID19 DIAGNOSIS???
It has NEVER been a practice of government to pay hospitals for making a diagnosis! This is a simple FACT! They are doing this because the EVIL 1% SEEK TO CONTROL EVERY ASPECT OF YOUR LIFE!
Please click the American Thinker link below to read about 120 years of LIES about Climate that have been used to take your freedoms, usurp your wealth, grow government, destroy YOUR BUSINESS and take your customers through the use of Climate LIES and PROPAGANDA! It has become essential to the people of the world to EDUCATE THEMSELVES about how YOU ARE ROBBED to put money in the pockets of CRIMINALS within government and wealthy elite scumbags.
If you read the American Thinker article above you’ll know that MEDIA & GOVERNMENT has not only LIED TO YOU, but they’ve also LIED TO YOUR ANCESTORS! You heard me correctly. They have LIED to your mother and father, your grandparents, your great-grandparents, and your great-great grandparents!
I would even venture to say they LIED to your grandparents’ great grandparents as well! There is nothing as EVIL as people who feel a need to CONTROL & ROB YOU of your freedoms and your wealth through LIES! These scumbags belong in PRISON or on death row, but unfortunately, they CONTROL those institutions as well! These people are worshipers of SATAN and they have no problem whatsoever killing hundreds of thousands of people to make a few bucks! TRUE EVIL! It is what the Bible warned you about!
STOP listening to and believing their CLIMATE PROPAGANDA! You should visit Real Climate Science and SUBSCRIBE so that you’ll be able to recognize their LIES!
Follow the link below and PLEASE SHARE because their attack is now going to shift from covid19 to CLIMATE LIES. BOTH are works of fiction being used to manipulate & control YOU!
RACE has no role in human affairs except as a CORRUPTION. RACISM has become a tool for government and media to beat you over the head with if you are white OR used to make you a VICTIM, a powerless child who needs a government “daddy” if you are black.
Government KNOWS they MUST DIVIDE US! Because once people of ALL COLORS come together, government is no longer safe from scrutiny of all the people. They divide us for POWER & CONTROL of all of our lives.
White, black, brown, red, and yellow people must UNITE AGAINST THE TYRANNY OF GOVERNMENT, which can only coerce us if we remain divided! Should we join together they KNOW that the jig is up for them!
We DON’T need government control, we need FREEDOM! This EVIL racial division was created by the Communist scumbags Barack Hussein Obama & Eric Holder, with the help of a few race hustlers like Al Sharpton! They sew division for a living. It does not bother them in the least that they cause lives to be lost and racial division and violence where there was once only peace! They feed on YOUR PAIN as they count their ill gotten money.
PLEASE WATCH & SHARE “What killed Michael Brown?” by Shelby Steele, an actual civil rights advocate. This documentary will demonstrate to you where the Marxist BLM movement began. It will demonstrate how ALL OF AMERICA has been victimized by race hustlers and EVIL politicians for the sole purpose of sewing hatred & division & making a profit from it.
“Racism” was real in the past. The racism we see today is a work of fiction created by those seeking to control us all and profit from their evil lies.
And then I need you to understand that the “New World Order” is real and it seeks to create a totalitarian world government with total control over every person on the planet. If the phony “Racism” and the phony “Climate Change” and the phony “Covid-19” narratives are allowed to continue, the world will become a place that none of us want to live!A totalitarian one world government with total control of ALL PROPERTY on the planet, control over you like you have never seen before.
They wish to control YOUR DIET and your housing. Worst of all, they seek to control your MIND! They have been planning for years to force you into a “cashless society.” They want a cashless society to tighten their control over you.
Facebook, Google, and Twitter have already given you just a small preview of what will happen should they succeed with the censorship of ANY IDEAS that they don’t agree with.
Imagine, if you will, a world in which instead of censoring your social media posts, government can deny you the ability to work, buy groceries, worship God, obtain medical care, travel, and basically wipe you off the face of the Earth because they don’t like your opinion!
“Evil” simply is not adequate to describe these people. They are literally DEMONS walking the face of the Earth! China has been the “proving grounds” for what they plan on imposing ob YOU. “Social credit scores” decide on if you get to eat, see a doctor, get a job etc….
Governments around the PLANET are all in this together as we can easily see with the covid-19 Tyranny. People being arrested and beaten for not wearing a mask! An item which offers NO PROTECTION WHATSOEVER AGAINST ANY VIRUS! Much less against the HOAX VIRUS, covid19.
The mask is nothing more than a “ritualistic shame muzzle” used to control and demoralize you. It has been used throughout history. Slaves throughout history have been forced to wear masks, and in China they even force people to wear 6 foot high “Dunce Caps” so they may be publicly shamed and ridiculed.
Illegal Immigration is another weapon used by EVIL “New World Order” psychopaths to disenfranchise American voters, to dilute their votes, essentially stealing the entirety of a citizens political power to effect change! This is unacceptable and MUST CHANGE NOW!
When the Federal Government is violating their own laws you HAVE TYRANNY! Joe Biden and his administration are NOT legitimate “winners” of the Presidency to begin with. EVERY AMERICAN KNOWS THIS! Now they are using their illegitimately held office to DESTROY America and turn it’s citizens into SLAVES!
Tucker Carlson did a segment on exactly how the criminals inside of the US Government ARE disenfranchising ALL VOTERS of the United States by allowing illegal Immigration. Of course the progressives and media attacked instantly calling his TRUTHFUL CLAIM “White Supremacy”
“Voters” come in EVERY COLOR so I’m not quite sure how they figured this. It’s nonsensical PROPAGANDA, as usual. PATHETIC LIES.
IT IS A PROBLEM WHEN POLITICAL LEADERS ARE ATTEMPTING TO “Replace American #Voters OF EVERY COLOR” and that is EXACTLY what they ARE doing!
It is NOT A MATTER OF RACE!!! Black, White, Brown, Red, and Yellow people are ALL AMERICAN VOTERS!!!
So the claim this is somehow “White Supremacy” is not only a nonsensical, bald-faced LIE & PURE #PROPAGANDA it’s also a little #Racist if you give it any thought whatsoever!
I just searched for Tucker’s comments on this FACT of “Replacement Theory” that #Progressive morons have spoken about OPENLY all over the place….. And most of what I found were BS articles trying to convince people that it has something to do with ONLY WHITE PEOPLE
Tucker even SAYS IN THE SEGMENT THAT AMERICAN VOTERS BEING AFFECTED BY THIS ARE, NATURALLY, ALL COLORS!!!
They are disenfranchising blacks, whites, browns, reds, and yellows who are citizens of this country! THIS IS A FACT!!! And to claim otherwise is assuming black & brown & red & yellow people are ALL TOO STUPID TO UNDERSTAND THE CONVERSATION!!!
Which is RACIST! PERIOD!!!
Tucker Carlson Issues Fiery Response To Those Who Want To Cancel Him For ‘Replacement’ Remarks
It’s a simple FACT that the Biden Administration is GUILTY OF TREASON by the mere act of attempting to disenfranchise American VOTERS!
The media hacks can lie and call people “White Supremacists” all they want and it simply does NOT change the FACT that what they are doing is TREASONOUS and a CRIME AGAINST EVERY AMERICAN! ( Americans of ALL RACES & ALL COLORS! ) This is nothing more than a continuation of the dishonest “Americans are racists” claims made by Barack Hussein Obama, Eric Holder, Al Sharpton, and EVERY OTHER LIAR within the Democrat Party!
If you have not watched it, PLEASE WATCH & SHARE “Who killed Michael Brown?” by Shelby Steele! It fully explains how the entire “Racism” narrative began, and how it is maintained through constant Propaganda, Lies, and people who are creating an “Illusion” in their own mind, with absolutely NO BASIS WHATSOEVER IN REALITY!!!
The 2020 Election WAS STOLEN! We ALL KNOW IT! Voter Intimidation and harassment was documented! The vote count WAS ALTERED! There is irrefutable PROOF OF IT! But still they maintain the LIES! PATHETIC & Tyrannical!
And what about MASKS that do ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to prevent illness? Many schools are requiring small children, who ARE almost completely immune to catching or spreading Covid-19, are being forced to wear MASKS even in Cleveland, Texas! It MUST STOP!
PREPARE TO TAKE BACK THE FOUNDING PRINCIPLES OF THIS COUNTRY AT ANY COST! I’m willing to DIE folks!
I’m NOT WILLING TO DIE A SLAVE! LOCK AND LOAD!
Get out in the REAL WORLD and share this information! NOT just on the internet! burn these videos to disk and take them to church and get your Pastor to show them on SUNDAY! There is NOTHING The Lord would want more! I’ll be adding to this post, but this is a pretty good start on things YOU MUST KNOW TO FIGHT THIS INFORMATION WAR!
Mike Lindell’s new platform “Frank Speech” has been under attack constantly since it’s launch!
So … if you’re White and are the proud parent of a Black Lives Matter placard or bumper sticker, or any derivative thereof, there’s a more appropriate decal missing from your car’s rear window — “Punked By My Black Brothers.”
If America is a racist country, can someone tell me why is it that the majority of African immigrants become successful, in short order?
Over the years, being curious about how Africans regard Black Americans, I have spent lots of time having that conversation with a number of Africans, and they have all disclosed the same, surprising response.
On balance, African immigrants have disdain and contempt for American Blacks and vehemently discouraged any inferred likeness … nor any empathy or sympathy for American Blacks. They believe that American Blacks are a “mongrel” breed that is lazy and in constant pursuit of entitlements that are not theirs to have. And chief among their objections has been the appropriated “African-American” moniker.
Does anyone find it odd that few … very few Blacks of my generation (66) and older have little-to-nothing to say of racism, leaving the majority of race-centric grievances to come from those too young to have experienced the grief about which they habitually complain?
These young and malevolent malcontents know nothing … absolutely nothing … of racism. Their plight simply is what I call, “victimhood entitlement.” They have been coddled for so long that they have evolved … or devolved … to demand a “right to be victims,” even though their chief victimizers stare back at them from their bathroom mirrors.
Yes, I agree. There is, in fact, something “systemic” about America, nowadays, but it has zilch to do with racism. Instead, it is Black America’s enslavement by denying themselves the binding of children to fathers and establishing the much warranted social parity and foundation upon which a meaningfully successful life can be built.
And sitting at their elbow, as Grand Pretorians, are guilt-ridden, Liberal White America, sanctioning, securing, and also demanding the notion of unrelenting victimhood for these grieving malcontents. Liberal White America have lain themselves prostrated in sacrificial homage to a cause about which they know no more than it obliges them with emotional release.
Instead of realizing the ruse on which they have been taken, Liberal White America has willingly come to its knees, puckered up, and are now fattened from the long suckling of the guilt teat. Through their participation in marches and riots, they have canonized their self-loathing and bestowed exotic royalty upon Blacks by the over-use of “African-American” as a new distinction and recognition of Authentic Blackness — a jewel of denial.
And the inherent danger in this behavior should not be ignored, for victimhood entrenchment is self-selective and, worse, self-fulfilling, meaning “…so long as ye both shall live.”
What Liberal White America is missing is that there is no real solidarity among Blacks … none, at all, as evidenced by the horrific incidents of Black-on-Black violence and murders. This guise of “togetherness” is a ruse, a notorious Snipe Hunt designed to “punk” Whites and gain their participation in their everpresent threat of mob violence, which, to date, has worked without any signs of abatement.
As those of us keen on the absence of raw racism look across the landscape to observe Whites joining in the incendiary protests, teetering on violence, we know that such White participation amounts to one of the most egregious displays of racism possible, which simply says that, without the involvement of Whites, the Black throngs simply are too marginalized, too racially insignificant to matter and, so, are undeserving of any serious consideration. Therefore, it is up to them, the Whites, to weigh in and bring warranted might to the fight.
Isn’t it time for Liberal White America … and their woke comrades … to take a different sort of knee? Let alone the Black rioters, the Black majority predictably ignorantly vote against their own interest, when they queue up behind Democrats who have never gained them anything. As such, they bear striking resemblance to what Russian demigod, Vladimir Lenin, referred to as “the Useful Idiots.”
If these Blacks are Useful Idiots, who and what does that make Liberal Whites who, by those idiots, are punked? Huh?!!
Perhaps, this creates the need for those Liberal Whites to take a break and slip into something comfortable … like a coma?

The Obama administration is obsessed with race and sex. Many know about the administration’s scheme to collect information on the racial composition of American communities in an effort to force neighborhoods to “diversify.” Now the government is applying the same philosophy to businesses in order to “equalize” wages. It’s an effort, critics point out, that will make it harder for white men to find jobs. Writes the New York Post’sBetsy McCaughey:
Claiming women aren’t getting paid enough, President Obama wants to make it easier to accuse employers of gender discrimination and hit them with class-action lawsuits. A new regulation proposed on Friday will require all employers with 100 or more workers to report how much their workforce is paid, broken down by race and [sex].
The rule, slated to go into effect in September 2017, will cause headaches for employers and anyone — man or woman — who works hard and expects to get ahead based on merit. The winners are federal bean counters, class-action lawyers and the Democratic Party, which is playing up the [inter-sex] “wage gap” as usual during this election year.
McCaughey points out that this regulation will hit white men the hardest, and this is echoed by American Thinker’s Thomas Lifson:
Your employer will have to lump workers into 12 salary bands. If you’re a white male up for a raise, but the band above yours already includes too many while males, tough luck. Your boss will be pressured to give the raise to a woman or minority to avoid triggering EEOC scrutiny.
This data collection is a godsend for EEOC regulators looking for targets, and it hands class-action lawyers the statistics they need on a silver platter.
Even worse: the presumption is that the employer discriminates, unless proven otherwise.
The “guilty until proven innocent” standard Lifson refers to seems to reflect “disparate impact” theory; this principle states that if a group cannot measure up to a standard as well as another group, that standard is by definition considered unjustly discriminatory. Applied by the government for decades, it has been used to compel police departments and other entities to scrap qualification exams because women and minorities underperformed on them. As an example, the Obama administration sued the Pennsylvania State Police in 2014 for treating women equally — because doing so yielded unequal outcomes.
As for different salary outcomes in business, McCaughey explains the consequences of the new regulations:
Employers will have to change their policies to avoid these differences — for example, not preferring the job applicant who has a college degree over the applicant who doesn’t, unless the job can be shown to require college skills. The burden is on employers. It’s assumed they’re discriminating, in other words, and they have to prove they’re not.
Jenny Yang, chairwoman of Obama’s Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, defends the massive fishing expedition, saying, “pay discrimination goes undetected because of a lack of accurate information about what people are paid.”
Of course, it’s impossible not to discover pay “discrimination.” All that term refers to is the process of choosing one or some from between/among two or many. And since meritocracy dictates we discriminate between the intelligent and the stupid, the educated and the ignorant, and the qualified and the unqualified — and since groups have different proclivities and interests — it follows that Yang cannot fail in her mission. But she clearly isn’t interested in the real question: Are inter-group pay gaps actually caused by prejudice?
Demagogues love the slogan “Women make only 79 cents on a man’s dollar!” Yet the same data-collection entities reporting that fact also tell us why — and it has nothing to do with unfair discrimination. I explained this in the 2014 New American piece “Equal Pay for Equal Work: Means Paying Men More,” but female commentators such as Carrie Lukas have made the same points. Here are some of the main factors influencing the inter-sex pay gap:
Men tend to choose more lucrative fields than women do (e.g., the hard sciences as opposed to the soft ones).
Related to the above, women avoid the most dangerous and dirtiest jobs — such as iron-working and commercial fishing — which often bring great compensation.
Full-time men work more hours on average than “full-time” women.
When climbing the corporate ladder, women are six times more likely than men to change positions and career tracks; consequently, men generally have more seniority and experience.
Women are more likely to decline promotions and “tend to place a higher priority on flexibility and personal fulfillment than do men, who focus more on pay. Women tend to avoid jobs that require travel or relocation, and they take more time off and spend fewer hours in the office than men do,” as Lukas wrote in 2007.
The reality is that women don’t get less money for equal work — they get less money for lesser work. Moreover, it seems that some pay gaps are more equal than others. There was much talk late last year about Hollywood actresses making less than actors (poor Jennifer Lawrence had to settle for $52 million, $28 million less than Robert Downey Jr.). Yet no one troubles over the top 10 female fashion models earning more than 10 times as much as their male counterparts do. And even among rank-and-file models, the women make 148 percent more.
But isn’t this “sex discrimination”? Aren’t the models doing equal work? This question gets at a generally ignored but central issue: What constitutes equal work, anyway?
Models don’t get paid because they’re capable of posing, wearing clothing, standing under hot lights or parading down runways; I could do that. They earn wages because their “work” helps satisfy a market — and the female models command more because their “work” satisfies a bigger market than the men’s work does. This is the same reason NBA players make more than WNBA players and heavyweight boxers generally out-earn lightweights. The “work” isn’t just shooting baskets and throwing punches; it involves succeeding in, respectively, the NBA and heavyweight ranks.
This brings us to another significant point: Is it really true that sex and racial discrimination is always unjust? Consider that a quality integral to doing the women models’ work is being female. If the male models were women, they might be able to do the same “work” and satisfy the market equally. There are many other such examples. As I wrote in 2014:
My local hardware store provides knowledgeable workers, all men, who render valuable advice on products and how to perform various home repairs. If it was determined that people found a female in that role less credible and were then not quite as likely to buy from the establishment, would even a highly competent woman be able to do “equal work” in that capacity?
What about the little West Indian restaurant, with all-black workers, I loved when I spent a few weeks in Tampa? If hiring a white person made the eatery seem less authentic and negatively affected its appeal, would that individual be able to do “equal work”? The same, of course, could be asked about a black person working in a German restaurant. In these cases race would be integral to the “work.”
The reality is that the government has no idea what constitutes “equal work,” yet it feels qualified to mandate equal pay. But while one might not expect bureaucrats to have pondered deeper issues such as the above, simple facts can be easily apprehended. And here’s one: Women in the Obama White House make only 84 cents on every male staffer’s dollar. Is this driven by bad intentions? If not, a desire to ascribe such motives to a wider society exhibiting the same phenomenon just might be driven by bad intentions itself.
