Almost every day we hear about one radical group or another demanding that they get their way even if it violates the rights of the rest of America. I truly believe that this mindset is the result of the liberal ideology of ‘everybody gets a trophy’. When that was first implemented my kids were still in grade school. I was even a Democrat at the time and I knew that this would create big problems later on if that idiotic concept was followed through with for too many years.
I think I understand why they thought this was a good idea but still think the concept is/was without merit on any level. What the fools that initiated this didn’t even think about is the real world does not operate in that manner! Liberals are obsessed with equality and on the surface, that is a good thing but they want equality on the end and that is impossible. The only way that can happen is take away from those that worked harder and give it to those who couldn’t or as in most cases, wouldn’t work hard. Life is not fare. Scripture says that it rains on the just and the unjust (Matthew 5:45). If we are not trained to accept loss or defeat we will be unable to deal with real life. That is exactly what we are seeing today with the riots because the Democrat candidate lost and now the will of most of the people, conservatives that is, is being implemented.
I don’t recall conservatives having meltdowns, rioting, burning police cars and the businesses of innocent people because Obama had been elected. That is the difference between those that have been raised to deal with life and those who were raised to believe that you always get what you want no matter how it affects others.
The miserable group Black Lives Matters, which Obama invited to the White House, even though they advocate for the killing of all cops, is an example of these immature brats. They are, in reality, a cancer on a civil society. It’s time to expose the Black Lives Matter [BLM] movement for what it is: a racist, violent hate group that promotes the execution of police officers. The evidence is in their rhetoric and written on their shirts.
If you take a look at the Black Lives Matter Twitter feed, you’ll find photos of activists wearing shirts that say, “Assata Taught Me.”
They’re referring to infamous cop killer Assata Shakur, otherwise known as Joanne Chesimard, who shot and killed a New Jersey State Trooper back in 1973. In 1977, Shakur was convicted and sentenced to prison but quickly escaped and has been a fugitive in Cuba ever since. She’s also on the FBI’s most wanted terrorism list. BLM glorifies Shakur as a hero and uses her writings and materials during training sessions. Lee Stranahan has more:
BlackLivesMatter—the activist group that demands a “racial justice agenda” that includes constant criticism and activism against police—invokes the words of convicted cop killer Assata Shakur at “all its events.” 1
These immature people seem to think that they can do anything they want and it must be accepted. This group was founded after a black known for criminal activities was killed when he attacked a Hispanic person.2 In Ferguson we saw riots when another black criminal, Michael Brown, who had just robbed a convivence store and then was shot when he attacked a cop attempting to take his gun and then tried to walk away. The cop ordered him to stop but he turned and charged the cop. For some reason these fool protestors don’t seem to think that the cop has a right to defend himself.
We have had cops gunned down just because they are cops. 3 Then in Dallas at a BLM protest 5 of Dallas’ finest were gunned down. Breitbart Texas reported on July 7, that Micah Xavier Johson killed five police officers, and wounded six others (including one civilian) at a Black Lives Matter protest in Dallas. The former Army Reservist said he wanted to kill white people, especially white officers. He was killed by Dallas PD when officers sent a robot to where he was hiding and detonated a bomb. As reported, a Facebook profile search showed that Johnson’s profile photo showed him dressed in a dashiki, holding a clenched fist in the air. His cover photos was a black liberation flag and a black power fist. And although he did not expressly say he was a member of the black militant Muslim Nation of Islam, he had liked pages relating to the deceased founder, Elijah Mohammed. He also liked several militant and black separatist groups such as The New Black Panther Party and the African American Defense League. 4
There are also complete fools that seem to think that everything is offensive and must be banned. Late last week, Daniell Rider of Killeen, Texas posted a photo and a message to the craft chain’s Facebook page, saying cotton – a prime export of the pre-Civil War South – in a glass vase was “so wrong on so many levels.”
“There is nothing decorative about raw cotton. A commodity which was gained at the expense of African-American slaves,” she wrote. “A little sensitivity goes a long way. Please remove this decor.” 5 In another cotton controversy, the president of Nashville’s Lipscomb University offered an apology after cotton stalks were used in a centerpiece at a dinner at his home for African-American students. After the dinner, a student complained on social media that the centerpiece was offensive. 6 This behavior is nothing but a sign not being able to cope with everyday life. If these snowflakes find the display of cotton so offensive I wonder if they buy anything made of cotton?
If BLM was/is so concerned about the black community why are we not hearing about the convoys of trucks taking food and water to the black communities devastated by hurricanes Harvey and Irma? It’s because they don’t care about the black communities unless they can get publicity or make a profit. Kind of like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton.
We can’t forget about the women’s march, you know the one where they wore, excuse the term, ‘pussy hats’. I have yet to understand what point they were trying to make with those hats. And how about the people, especially blacks, that walk around with a Che Guevara tee shirts. These uneducated fools use him for a symbol of hope and freedom and they don’t even know he hated blacks, murdered gays, hated music and burned books. The truth about Che now has its boots on. He helped free Cubans from the repressive Batista regime, only to enslave them in a totalitarian police state worst than the last. He was Fidel Castro’s chief executioner, a mass-murderer who in theory could have commanded any number of Latin American death squads, from Peru’s Shining Path on the political left to Guatemala’s White Hand on the right.
“Just as Jacobin Paris had Louis Antoine de Saint-Just,” wrote French historian Pascal Fontaine, “revolutionary Havana had Che Guevara, a Latin American version of Nechaev, the nineteenth century nihilist terrorist who inspired Dostoevsky’s The Devils. As Guevara wrote to a friend in 1957, ‘My ideological training means that I am one of those people who believe that the solution to the world’s problems is to be found behind the Iron Curtain.’…He was a great admirer of the Cultural Revolution [in China]. According to Regis Debray, ‘It was he and not Fidel who in 1960 invented Cuba’s first corrective work camp,’ or what the Americans would call a slave labor camp and the Russians called the gulag.” 7
What is the real danger in America? Ignorance period but especially ignorance of history. Those who don’t know history will no doubt repeat it. We don’t teach it. We don’t rehearse what mankind has learned throughout the ages with our kids. One of our Founding Fathers, Noah Webster stated: “Every child in America should be acquainted with his own country. He should read books that furnish him with ideas that will be useful to him in life and practice. As soon as he opens his lips, he should rehearse the history of his own country.” This has not been done for the last 50 years and the results are what we are seeing on the news every day. People say that education has gotten so expensive, which it has because of federal government involvement, but the cost of ignorance may be the loss of our freedom and our national sovereignty.
