So let’s talk a little culture. You know Andrew Breitbart used to say that politics flows downstream from culture. While it is clear that politics is where actual policy and laws happen, nothing influences politics more than the culture.
It is the main reason for so many of the big changes we have seen in our country over the years. The left learned a long time ago that you could soften people up to be more accepting of the things they want, by saturating the cultural landscape with ideas they would like to see implemented.
It is why today even the U.S. military is woke. It is nothing strange to get emails in your inbox from high ranking officials pushing leftist narratives. Ask people in the military. They’ll tell you.
This acceptance of all things woke, no matter where you turn happened to a large extent because the left saw Hollywood, academia, and big business not just as different fields where people conduct business, but they saw each of these fields as places to influence the culture.
So while conservatives and the right in general were trying to engage people with ideas spoken from traditional platforms in seminars, conferences, political rallies etc. The left was pushing their agenda at Universities, in the business world, and most of all in the entertainment industry where they were much more effective getting people to accept their destructive ideas.
MacGyver was a very entertaining show for instance, but the people behind MacGyver admitted that apart from giving the people an entertaining show to watch, they were promoting an anti-gun message. Ben Shapiro, before he became known as a conservative stalwart, interviewed a few of these Hollywood bigwigs some years ago. He got them to relax, and they spoke freely about how they were pushing their agenda in their shows movies etc.
Just a few years ago people used to laugh and say, those woke lefty students with all of their unrealistic expectations were about to get a wake up call “when they enter the real world.” No one thought enough of the influence that lefty professors were having on these young skulls full of mush (as the beloved Rush Limbaugh used to call them), to counteract the leftist messaging at the Universities.
Today those students that we laughed at are now in the real world. They are running the businesses at PayPal, facebook, Twitter (until recently), Google, YouTube, Apple, Disney, and everywhere you turn. They are not just content to push their agenda in the arena of ideas, but they want to force their ideas on the rest of society by virtue of the influence they now wield in the world of business.
They recognized that they could influence the culture much more effectively using the means they have, rather that the conservative method, when conservatives give people nice sounding speeches about the virtues of capitalism, the free market, family, free speech, the constitution, God etc.
As a result today we not have Disney pushing the transgender ideology to children with a boldness that would have been unimaginable a few short years ago. The institution of marriage has been extended to include men “marrying” men, women “marrying” women. Pornography books are now displayed in school libraries, with a special emphasis on pushing the idea that gay sex is a beautiful act that is the most natural thing in the world.
The effect on the culture has been so effective that many of the parents who object to this kind of indoctrination are now deemed as the intolerable ones.
The idea of free speech is regularly attacked, and censorship is now viewed as a viable option when it comes to beating ideas that the left is considers to be unworthy of an audience.
This is the world in which we now live. People on the right cannot afford to stay out of the cultural forums where so much of the battle has been waged. They might be a little late to the game, but they can still participate.
They have a lot of ground to make up, but that’s ok. They cannot afford to have a defeatist attitude. Thank God for men like Dinesh De Souza, Ben Shapiro, the Director of the Film My Son Hunter, Robert Davi, PragerU with their videos, and others who have gotten in the game in the last few years.
Hi, my name is Obnocks Sius
I’m a hate monger, or at least so they say, but I’m a lefty. That makes all the difference. That makes it alright.
My hatred is righteous. I despise all things with which I disagree, and I hate the people who espouse these things even more.
When I rage, and I rampage, it’s usually for a good cause. It’s true I burn cities, destroy neighborhoods, and leave a trail of bloodshed, murder, mayhem, and billions in damages everywhere I go, and everything I touch turns to dirt, but never mind that. I do it all with good intentions and to strike a righteous blow to those right wing haters. Their violence is not righteous and must be judged differently than my violence, and the violence of my lefty compatriots.
Our violence is righteous! There’s is based on white supremacy. Everyone knows that.
Speaking of racism…don’t misunderstand, my racism is directed at those who indulge in the wrong kind of racism. Besides, it’s not reeeeeaaaly racism.
It is true they do not have a platform to spread their hate. It is true their racism is called out in the media at the drop of a dime. It is true that the FBI will move in on them without hesitation. It is true that their racism is usually not tolerated, and people lose careers for simple violations of the racism rules that we have established.
Don’t compare their racism to ours though. Our racism is righteous racism. We deserve our platform. Black conservatives deserve to be called Uncle Toms. They deserve, to have their blackness questioned. Who do they think they are walking away from the left? Race traitors is what they are. All of them. My job is to call them out and bring them back on the plantation…uh…right side.
Low taxes, freedom of speech, freedom of religion, small government, opposing the nanny state, support of the second amendment, etc. etc. etc? Who do they think they are?
And the white man. Don’t get me started.. He deserves the abuse, the name calling, stereo types and all the abuse he gets in the press. We must put an end to whiteness. Those universities courses on how to combat whiteness are legit. We support that church that fasted against whiteness for lent during the run up to last easter. The calls for white genocide by the number of University professors in the last ten years are well deserved. All the anti white sentiment we hear in the media everyday. That’s on the level.
And CRT, it’s not racist at all. We know that all of America is pretty much broken up into two groups, the oppressor group and the oppressed group. It is evident that the oppressors are white people, the white male in particular. Everyone else is made up of the oppressed. Every disadvantage the oppressed suffer in this life, every hardship, every misfortune, every bad circumstance in life. none of it is ever their fault, or because life is filled with adversity. It is all whitey’s fault. Everyone knows that. Why is pointing that out racism?
Don’t blame me for speaking the truth on any of these matters. Call me racist if you want. If it is, then it is righteous racism.
I make no apologies. I am Obnocks Sius. It is my calling to let you all know what horrible people you are. I just tell it like it is.
Deal with it!
Back in 2017 Ohio State University hosted a session called “Interrupting Racism: Tips & Tools for White People.” During the session, one guilt ridden white female self righteously declared “Whiteness grants you power and access to things,” she further added “As a white woman, I can walk into any space and know that my white privilege will grant me power and access to things that someone else is not going to experience.” Boom! That settles it. Nothing wrong with making such a blanket statement about a whole group of people. It is the truth. When asked by a black student if only white people can be racist, Angie Wellman, associate director in the Student Life Multicultural Center said yes. Only white people got the power so only they can be racist. There you go.
Recently one young black man by the name of John Fuller, a member of the same University said the following “I would absolutely love to live in a world where Black people were taught that they are superior,” He was not done. “I would love it because I full-heartedly believe that.” Then dropped this gem “By taking away the teaching of one race as superior to another, that is inherently white supremacy because white people learn from birth that they are superior. There is nothing that they need to be taught in school that tells them that,” Did you get that? Look at it again. Let’s break it down. Forbidding the teaching of race superiority in general is a form of white racism. Why?…because white people have it ingrained in them from birth. Now it it black people’s turn to get that benefit. Let’s go ahead and make it part of the curriculum.
Here is a goldie from a guest lecturer at one of our prestigious Universities, no lesser institution that Yale University. The lecturers name is Dr. Aruna Khilanani. Here are some of her inspiring words. The topic of the awe inspiring lecture was called “The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind.” She declared I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f**king favor They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath.’ Madam was not done “We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain’t gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It’s like banging your head against a brick wall. It’s just like sort of not a good idea.”
Some months back, some black female students at the University Of Virginia thought that it was a good idea to harass some white male students simply becaue these young man had the audacity to be in the same room with these black females. The young black females were having not of it so the did not hesitate to begin harassing the young men for being white and in the same space with them. They were offended by a police lives matter sticker that one of the students had, and they immediately got to work. “You’re offensive. ‘Police lives matter?” The harassment continued. “You’re making this space uncomfortable. You’re white. Do you understand what a multicultural space [means]? It means you’re not being centered.” One of the harassers demanded the young men leave if the “have any consideration for people of color and are marginalized.” The young men heard that “Every single part or the campus centers you,” the student cried. “This is the only space that you’re not centered, and you’re still trying to center yourself, which is white cis male bullsh***.” They were not done and they continued to harass the two white students for being white and daring to be in the same room with them.
This leftist poison has even invaded the so called church. Leading up to Easter during lent, one Church in Chicago decided that they were going to fast from whiteness. Responding to the backlash, the leadership said “In keeping with the Lenten spiritual discipline of fasting, our intent was to lay aside our usual frames of reference and open ourselves to hearing the Gospel message through the voices of Black People, Indigenous People, and People of Color. Our worship services in Lent have been diverse and beautiful, joyful and Spirit-filled. We pray that God oils the hinges of our hearts doors that they might swing open gently to receive the good news of Christ’s resurrection, which we all await at the culmination of Lent.” What do you say to this garbage? Make no mistake, the message of Christ is open to all. He is not respecter of skin color, but this is the kind of nonsense that has no place in the body of Christ.
Tiffanny Cross of MSNBC had this to say about the Will Smith, Chris Rock slap “I will try to put this in context for our White fellow countrymen as best I can,” She explained “In really, truly Black America, (what is the criteria to be identified as truly black America?) there’s a commonality amongst us all. If we went to a White person’s home, and it was their family dinner, and we were sitting at the table, and the mother hauled off and slapped the father and everybody at the table has an opinion.” “If I weigh in as the guest in this home and say, ‘Yeah, you guys are terrible,’ Everybody’s like ‘I’m sorry. When did you get an opinion? This is our family table.’ That’s what this moment felt like for many of us. And there is a nuance that happened. “I want to be really clear, while we talk about family talk. I think it is utterly ridiculous to center this conversation in the opinions of White folks. This is just about what happened there. The jumping off point should not be what might the White people think about it. It is just this moment between those two men. I thought it was uncalled for,” Cross said.
Ok, one more for the road. This one is all the way back in the annals of 2015 from a radio show called Sunshine’s F***ing Opinion Radio Show (we did not get here overnight, there’s been a slow steady creep for years). A man called in to the show and opined, speaking about white people “when those mother f**kers are by themselves, that’s when when we should start f***ing them up. Like they do us, when a bunch of them ni**ers takin’ one of us out, that’s how we should roll up.” He said, “Cause we already roll up in gangs anyway. There should be six or seven black mother f**ckers, see that white person, and then lynch their ass. Let’s turn the tables.” The host did not find it necessary to check her caller. Instead she approved.
Now what is the point of highlighting all of this. It is to show how dangerous the left is to this country. These examples highlighted here demonstrate how the left has created a climate that makes people believe that they can say these things without any fear of negative blowback. They do not have to worry about getting cancelled, being ostracized, losing careers, getting called out on a 24 hr loop on CNN or MSNBC has Can you find white supremacists who hold similar views about their race. No doubt! Here is the difference though. They are not given a platform on college campuses to spread their bile. They do not get a prime time show to preach their propaganda. Go ahead and call Tucker Carlson a racist all you want. You cannot reference anything from Tucker’s shows that come even a pico fraction of an inch close to the examples I gave. All you have are your opinions.
Let’s take a look and examine the issues of Joe Biden’s cognitive decline, and his oft controversial statements on race.
Joe Biden: …Continue, which we must do every, every day. Continue to bear witness. Keep alive the truth and honor of the holocaust..horra, horra..the holocaust.
We’ve seen him turn around to shake the hands of invisible people, then watch as one of his handlers rush in to guide him off the stage, to the right corner or whatever.
We have seen him constantly refer to, or introduce his Vice President as the President of the United States.
When he announced his candidacy he said I’m Joe Biden, and I’m running for the United States Senate.
We’ve seen him in a room full of “dignitaries” walking around dazed and confused, absolutely lost in a situation where he should be commanding the room, in control, and be the main point of focus, before someone sadly dives in to rescue him.
A couple days ago he told the world that the United States will be donating one million doses of COVE VID – 19 to Gaza. Of course his usual defenders excused this gaffe. Oh it’s just Joe…we know what he meant. He did not mean deliver COVE VID – 19. He meant COVE VID – 19 vack seens. Yeah… sure. The guy never even corrected himself.
How many times have we seen him just go off on the press in ways we have never even seen Trump do? And we know how Trump was treated by the media. On top of all of that, he is unable to give impromptu interviews with the media. He simply cannot do it. On occasion he has attempted to engage the press, but his handlers would run in and drag him away.
Anyone remember his famous statement that Vladimir Putin cannot remain in power?
How many times have we seen his staff making real time corrections to his blunders…how many?
Did you ever see his staff frantically screaming “thank, you, thank you, thank you,”trying to rid the room of the press, because old Joey decided to go off script…ever seen it?
When questioned about it, they would tell you we are not saying anything different than the President has stated, or some version of that statement.
Let’s look at his history of controversial statements on race.
How can we forget this one “Well, I tell you what, if you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black,” said the old white male Democrat, to a black man who dared to challenged him.
Who cares though? It’s not Trump who said it. That’s all that matters. Go on bout yuh business now, you hear?
BIDEN: “Latinx” (whatever a Latinx is) people don’t want to get vaccinated because they’re worried they’ll be deported (if you are Latinx you are automatically here illegally…)?
Joey one more time: “Unlike the African American community, with notable exceptions, the Latino community is an incredibly diverse community with incredibly different attitudes about different things.”
One time Biden got angry at a black reporter who asked him about taking a cognitive test, and uncle Joey got angry. Here’s Joey, “That’s like saying you . . . before you got in this program, you’re take [sic] a test whether you’re taking cocaine or not. What do you think? Huh? Are you a junkie?”
No pushback whatsoever from our moral superiors.
Joseph: “The blinders have been taken off, they’ve all of a sudden seen a lot clearer. They’ve seen geez the reason I’ve been able to stay sequestered in my home is because some black woman was able to stack the grocery shelf.”
“By the way, you know, I sit on the stand, and it get[s] hot, I got a lot, I got hairy legs that turn blonde in the sun, and the kids used to come up and reach in the pool and rub my leg down so it was straight and then watch the hair come back up again. They’d look at it. So I learned about roaches, I learned about kids jumping on my lap. And I loved kids jumping on my lap.”
This was while he was pandering to a crowd of black people including kids (who could only be black if they vote for him, and their children grow up to do likewise).
There’s so much wrong with that statement. Who were the roaches? Was he having another senior moment? There’s even more but that’s for another time.
Poor kids (if you are not white you are poor…?) are just as talented as white kids.
Remember when he casually mentioned “‘Shylocks’” taking advantage of women and men.”
There is so much more, but this is enough to make the point. Pay attention also to the cavalier way they respond, on the rare occasion they do get challenged on these blunders. They are seldom apologetic. Its mostly how dare you, don’t you know who we are? WE ARE DEMOCRATS!
Now they will tell you that all of this is tolerable because…well…orange man, but do not believe them. It was never about how terrible Trump was per se, although it was necessary for them to frame it that way.
It was always about power, and if that meant voting for a man who is in an evident state of cognitive decline with dementia or some other cognitive disease, and excusing his countless racist gaffes, then so be it.
why wasn’t a diplomatic pause an option to pursue a possible deescalation when this thing started to heat up a few months ago. Why did the U.S. refuse to engage with Russia and treat them as equals?
Perhaps talking with partners in a strong diplomatic push effort with Russia could have at least delayed this.
I see a lot of arrogance on the part of the U.S. in the way they handled this, by refusing to address the issues and concerns Russia has been raising for years.
When it became evident that Russia really was going to invade, it seems that pursuing back door channels to convince Russia to take a different route might have been an option.
When it became evident that we were not going to fulfill our promise to protect Ukraine way back in 2014, we should have pursued another route, because Russia called our bluff and we did nothing. After that, it might have been time to take a different position.
Was allowing the the people in areas of Ukraine that have the strong historical, ethnic, cultural ties, and who are sympathetic to Russia, to hold a referendum to pursue independence an option?
If they chose independence at the time, Ukraine would have lost a small portion of their territory, minus the loss of life and destruction they have experienced since deciding instead of to go up militarily against the Russian juggernaut.
Now they have to contend with losing more territory that will be even more difficult to get back from Russia.
What about the idea of Ukraine being a neutral country? Why was that even off the table?
We strung Ukraine along for over two decades giving them a false sense of security. It is clear now that we were never going to back them up in the time of crisis, so as silly as neutrality seems; it may have been the better alternative.
Ukraine could have been light years ahead of where they are today.
So there is a lot of shoulda, coulda, woulda said in these statements. What do we do now?
What does “victory” look like for Ukraine and the United States? Is continuing to engage Russia militarily the best choice? We know how World War Two started when Arch Duke Franz Ferdinand was assassinated, and it led to a major conflation of small tinders that went untreated for years across the continent.
It seems that we are not even considering the possibility of this thing escalating to a point that could trigger something much worse, much more undesirable, and something for which we are not prepared.
Russia is not going to come out of this unscathed. Apart from the losses they have already suffered, they now have to contend with the fact that Finland which shares a 1300 KM border with Russia is now a part of NATO, and Sweden which has always refused the idea of joining NATO, will now be members of NATO.
They now hav to deal with that reality even though, they will succeed in keeping NATO off the border they share with Ukraine.
So what now? We can all agree that Russia is the villain in all of this, but to deny that we contributed to the fiasco that now exists means that we will learn nothing from it.
Acknowledging our role in all of this is a good place to start, then maybe making an effort to bring all of the sides together to find real solutions could get us on the road to peace.
While we are at it, the United States should stop giving other nations false hope, and stop making promises we do not intend to keep. We should stop being so flippant about these security accords that we sign. Every time the U.S. fails to live up to the obligations the country agrees to, it sends a message to the world that America no longer sticks to their word. America loses a little more of it’s prestige in the world and we embolden our adversaries.
This is not coming from a Russia/Ukraine expert, nor a Russian apologist…just from someone who has questions. What is victory in Ukraine supposed to look like? Did America and the West really expect to militarily defeat Russia who had their mind set on annexing the areas of Ukraine they did, and that has strong ethnic and historical ties with Russia?
With NATO moving closer and closer to the borders of Russia, making it possible for Ukraine to be a potential staging ground from where missiles can be launched into Russia, were Russia’s concerns not legitimate?
With the breakup of the Soviet Union and Russia not being the same threat that they once were to the United States, a case can be made that the continued eastward expansion of NATO into former Russian states were an unnecessary provocation of Russia. Again, to be clear; this is not coming from a Russian expert, but these are questions that we cannot simply discard.
As NATO wooed Ukraine and made moves to draw in the country as part of the military organization, it is likely that the Russians had a legitimate case that this was a step too far. They may have felt they had to respond, to drive a message home to the West that Russia will no longer stand by as NATO expansion comes closer and to their doorsteps. For years Putin has sought to voice Russia’s concerns to NATO, but was continually ignored.
When it was clear that Russia was about to move into Ukraine, the United States missed an opportunity to launch a high pressure diplomatic campaign aimed at addressing the concerns of Russia. Instead, the United States took an increasingly aggressive tone toward Russia and adopted an even more hostile posture, and chose to instead fight a proxy war with the Russians via Ukraine.
A while back Rep. Seth Moulton, D-Mass. said “We’re not just at war to support the Ukrainians. We’re fundamentally at war, although somewhat through a proxy, with Russia, and it’s important that we win.” So once more, what exactly does victory in this war against Russia look like?
So far the United States has sent $56 billion dollars to Ukraine in their war effort, but the situation has nevertheless continued to deteriorate. How much more are we willing to spend?
After Russia recognized the Ukraine regions of Donetsk and Lunansk as independent States, it was clear that Russia was not going to back down in their demand that Ukraine not be a staging ground for NATO. Of course they had a bunch of excuses to use for their incursion, but that was always something they had raised concerns about to NATO and the United States in particular.
The west had already abandoned their agreement to protect Ukraine after they convinced that country to give up its Nuclear weapons back in the 1990s. When Russia invaded Ukraine in 2014, America and the other signatories of the agreement to stand with Ukraine and ensure that Russia respect Ukraine’s territorial integrity, stood by and did nothing.
Obviously an all out conflict with Russia is nothing to take lightly, but the agreement did more or less say that the United States will not allow Russia to bully the former Soviet Republic. The least the United States could have done was engage with Russia, treat them as an equal, to try and assuage their concerns, deescalate tensions and try to convince them that it is in Russia’s best interest to honor their part of the agreement, that said Russia will respect Ukraine’s territorial integrity.
Perhaps that was the point when the idea of Ukraine becoming a truly neutral country should have been considered, and negotiated with the Russians. Various sweeteners for all of the parties involved could have been included in any such agreement. Maybe the regions of Ukraine with ethnic ties and a strong affinity to Russia could have been given the opportunity to decide for themselves if they wanted to break away from Ukraine and become independent States. This may sound far fetched, but as it stands; these regions now are no longer a part of Ukraine as it is. They have been recognized as independent states by Russia. Russia is willing to lend their might to help protect those states new found sovereignty.
The bottom line in all of this is that nations will always act in their own self interest (for the most part), and it appears that Russia has chosen to do what they have determined is in their best interest.
By any measure, their invasion of Ukraine is wrong. The destruction they have wrought on that nation since the war began is devastatingly heart wrenching, and has triggered a humanitarian crisis that seemingly could have been avoided if all parities had calmed down and taken a dispassionate, more measured, diplomatic approach to resolving the issue.
Throughout the whole process all we’ve gotten was saber rattling, threats, posturing and an apparent complete lack of leadership from the United States. Even now with Russia having the obvious upper hand in the war against Ukraine, and Ukraine continuing to suffer more devastation, no one is attempting to deescalate the situation and bring this senseless war to an end.
How much longer are we willing to prolong the war in the effort to avoid the inevitable? All indicators seem to suggest that Russia will come out on top. How much more territory is Russia going to take control of before people even consider that continuing this war will be to the detriment of Ukraine, and to the benefit of Russia. This is not going to be another Afghanistan for Russia. They have the support of the people in many regions they have seized, so there’s that.
There are many other considerations to keep in mind as this war prolongs, mainly the longer it does; the more there is the possibility of other nations getting involved on either side increases. Cooler heads need to prevail. The people in charge, continuing to pushing this war need to consider the full economic ramifications, the effect of the geo political shifts, and realignments that are a likely consequence of this war. In addition, the humanitarian crisis, the possibility of more escalation, and the ever present threat of nuclear war need to always be on the minds of the power brokers in the midst of what seems at least, like a partially self made crisis.
According to the Washington Free Beacon, today, there are reports of Russia, China, and Iran holding Joint Military exercises in Latin America “in a show of force meant to signal how these militaries can reach the United States.” It makes one wonder how our mishandling of the Ukraine/Russia crisis, and other issues, has served to embolden these nations into coming in our own back yard to engaged in military exercises, in what was once an unlikely scenario?
In light of the recent Roe vs Wade Supreme court decision, and the left’s unhinged response to it; let us revisit when Senator Chuck Shumer threatened two members of the Supreme court.
This was Chucky:
“I want to tell you Neil Gorusch, and you Brett Kavanaugh, you have unleashed a whirlwind, and you will pay the price,” Schumer said. “You won’t know what hit you, if you go forward with these awful decisions.”
He made these threats on the steps of the Supremen Court. In a very rare occurence the Supreme Court felt it necessary to respond to this threat, and Chief Justice John Roberts put out a public statement addressing the Senator’s threat.
Shumer was not phased though. He responded “For Justice Roberts to follow the right wing’s deliberate misinterpretation of what Sen. Schumer said, while remaining silent when President Trump attacked Justices Sotomayor and Ginsburg last week, shows Justice Roberts does not just call balls and strikes.”
Did you get that? Trump criticizing Sotomayer and Ginsburg was the same as Shumer threatening Gorsuch and Kavanaugh. This is who these people are. They never fail to redirect. They never fail to project.
In addition, why do they always have this cavalier attitude towards their opponents? They know that the media, Hollywood, Big tech, academia and all of the left wing voices with the megaphone will never hold them to account
Now imagine a right wing politician, lets say Ted Cruz, saying something like this to Justice Breyer and Justice Sotomayor. What would the response be? But Chucky Shumer had no such worries. He is a leftist you see, and being on the left means never having to say you are sorry.
If on the rare occasion that you do say sorry, all is immediately forgiven, but most of the time the media would just make excuses for you, divert attention away from the behavior, and find some way to turn the attention to some right winger who did something bad some time ago.
The same virulent protestations that we usually see toward the right when they step out of line is seldom (if ever) ginned up against the left.
Black people, please refuse to look at any man as privileged just because of the color of his skin, and you as disadvantaged because of the color of your skin.
Do not harbor any feelings of inferiority because of your skin color. We’ve been wonderfully made by God. It is a part of our make up, but blackness in itself should not define us.
Let’s treat everyone the way we expect to be treated. Do not make any blanket statements about any group of people. The same way that you do not want a person from any group making blanket statements about blacks en masse don’t do it to others.
To make it a lil more personal, the day that I look at any white man in America and deem him as privileged just because he has a shade of skin that is lighter than mine, is the day when I need to turn myself in for a mental self examination.
Some no talent, unintelligent, white dude or dudette who does not put himself or herself in the position to be successful, plus has a poor work ethic should never be viewed as a threat to any black person simply because that person has a lighter shade of skin.
Why would anyone automatically adopt a mind set that says a person has a better chance than one’s self of making it in the world simply because of skin color and hair texture? Please do not continue buying in to that if you do. Do no set such low expectations for ourselves, or take on a can’t do attitude because people keep telling us as black people that we are starting at a disadvantage in every endeavor that we set out to accomplish. Do not put that extra mental burden on yourself, fighting bogeymen and demons that do not exist.
Keep yourself in a frame of mind that prepares you for real battles that you will no doubt encounter because life is often filled with struggle. From time to time you may encounter bigotry. When you do, just confront it like you would any other problem, but do not make a bed of self pity, to lie in while feeling sorry for yourself. Do no burden yourself with a mentality that is perpetually aggrieved because you think someone is out to get you for no other reason than your race. Do not live in that prison.
For those white people with the talent, the intelligence, the work ethic, and who put themselves in positions to be successful, they should get nothing from you but respect as a black person. Do be envious of them. Do not stereo them because of a physical characteristic over which they have no control. Stop falling for that nonsense.
Look at these people to see what you can glean from them, and continue to put in the effort to be successful. Don’t fall for the leftist trick that constantly portrays us black people as victims. Poor us, we just can’t do better, because of whitey over there. Whitey has such an unfair advantage over us. His skin is light and he has straight hair. That alone, absent of any other factor makes him more likely to be successful. We as black people, with our dark skin tone and nappy hair are more likely to to face hardship and failure, absent any other factor.
Are you serious? Are we really giving such power to the people who tell us this, by believing their low opinion of us as black people. Is that really a message we want to embrace as black people?
Do not buy in to that leftist victim mentality. Ask yourself this question black person, what is it that any white person can do that you cannot do in America if you put your mind to it, and put in the work.
No white person determines how far any black person can go in life in 2022 America. The success of no white individual is going to be a hindrance to how successful any black person can be.
Even if white people have some residue of privilege left over from a bygone era, that is not enough for us to whine about, nor is it enough to hold us back in any way, or stop us from being successful. In life we all face obstacles. Deal with them and keep on moving.
Utopia is a dream. There is no scenario in which every circumstance is perfect to do life. The bigger question is do we have the tools that we need to be successful. There is no doubt here, I am convinced that we do.
Pay no attention to this white privilege nonesense. Just stop for a minute and think about it. These people are telling us that the color of our skin automatically makes us victims, and a disadvantage. We could never be good as the white man unless they make it easier for us.
We have it so bad, we are in such terrible shape that we don’t even have what it takes to get an ID card to vote in the two year time periods between elections. Black people are such awful parents and caregivers that for the eighteen years they raise their children they do not know how to instruct their children to get an ID card to vote. You have got to be kidding.
This is what our white leftist protectors, and the black bourgeoisie enablers think of black people. They want black people to see them as their heroic benefactors. They continue to infantilize black people, treating them as their pet projects who are forever victims, and who just can’t catch a break in America.
Is this really the identity we want to continue grasping, and holding on to so tightly as black Americans?
It’s time to kick these people to the curb, and take our rightful place not as so called “African Americans,” but as Americans.
We never hear a message of hope from these elite clowns. We never get a message of encouragement from them. It’s a steady diet of how terrible it is to be black in America, and a constant barrage of gloom and doom.
Look folks, there are some issues that we face as black Americans that affect us more than they do other groups, but instead of looking outside and blaming the white man, the system or any other outside influence; can we take a look deep inside ourselves to see where we need to make changes? Ask ourselves what we are doing to contribute to our own problems. Can we do that? Can we be honest about the cultural issues we have that contribute to our struggles?
The first step in solving any problem is recognizing the problem, then admitting the problem exists. We can then go on to looking for possible solutions and testing them to see what works. Then we could go on to implement what does work best and reap the benefits.
Let’s not voluntarily wear the chains that white power hungry, guilt ridden, virtue signaling, sky is falling politicians, their black elite counterparts, and their minions everywhere want us to wear.
Man, do I have a Ghish Gallop for you!
It is hard to address these issues in sound bites because, I think the argument gets lost when we do not address them with a little more thought. I can’t do sound bites on these topics, so read it if you can. You do not have to address every single one if you read it, but it would be nice if you address the central point illustrated throughout the entire piece.
I am holding out hope that if you do decide to continue this discussion, you will address the actual points I make, and the examples I give, to show me why I am wrong…hoping…praying…without you jumping all over the place to divert from the main point.
Now, observe what I am doing. I am not just basing my argument on how I feel. I am taking stuff that has been prominent in the news over the last few years to make a point. I am giving examples to illustrate why it is I hold to the views that I hold. I am attempting to lay it out in a manner that clearly demonstrates why I think my statement is accurate.
There are so many more examples I can give, it will require a tome to show them all.
You asked which idea that I am personally being forced to accept. And then tell you how I am being forced?
Well I have to say that I don’t think that anyone is trying to force anything on me personally. No one has targeted me as an individual per se, but from what I can tell, the left is trying to force their sexual agenda with all of it’s radical views about sex on society as a whole. They cannot convince people on the strength of their ideas so they use the force of law, societal pressure, cultural pressure and other scare tactics to push that agenda forward.
Why do I say that:
Well maybe it’s when I see videos like below from the San Francisco gay choir, boasting “we’ll convert your children.”
Check it out, there is about a minute of commentary at the beginning:
Maybe it’s because of what the leftist Democrat candidate said during the Virginia campaign for Governor last year. When confronted about all of the sexually explicit material, transgenderism, CRT etc that children were being taught in schools, the Democrat candidate had some interesting feedback. Check out some of it below:
Youngkin (Republican candidate): “In Fairfax County this past week, we watched parents so upset because there was such sexually explicit material in the library they had never seen, it was shocking.”
“You believe school systems should tell children what to do. I believe parents should be in charge of their kids’ education,”
McAulliffe (Democrat candidate): “I’m not going to let parents come into schools, and actually take books out, and make their own decision,” McAuliffe said.
“Yeah, I stopped the bill that I don’t think parents should be telling schools what they should teach.”
Why else did I make my statement? I do not know, maybe it’s because we have seen Colorado use the power of the state and the courts to go after the Masterpie baker shop for years, because they did not want to cater to a gay wedding. Let me state that again, they have used to power of the state to harass, and go after these people because of their deep personal convictions that marriage is between a man and a woman, and they do not want to participate in the event.
The next thing you know they’ll be trying to force animal rights vegetarian caterers to serve meat to a carnivore wedding.
Note the shop has never refused to serve gays. They simply do no want to participate in gay weedings, but the courts, the state of Colorado, and the left would have none of it.
Check out the story here. This is just a brief piece, but the story with Masterpiece bakery, the gay community and the state of Colorado is a never ending saga of the left viciously going after a man who has done nothing to them. Go read about it for yourself. From all indications, this man is a decent human being. The left will not leave him alone though. The message is clear. He must conform or feel the consequences.
How memories Pizza shop in Indiana? Remember them? Remember when the state of Indiana made the religious protection law to protect people like the owners of the Masterpiece bakery who have businesses in Indiana. Like the Masterpiece bakery, the owner of Memories pizza shop said she has no problem serving anyone, including gays. She just will not cater to a gay wedding, again, because of her convictions of that marriage is between a man and a woman.
That was all the fascistic left needed. I do not know if you paid attention to the story back then, but these poor people initially had to close their business because of all the harassment from the left including Hollywood, the media, Democrats and the rest of the mob.
California banned their officials from travel to Indiana. The NCAA pulled out one of their tournaments from the state. There was such a backlash from the left, that those on the right had to point out so many of these hypocrites do business in countries where homosexuality is a crime, where being gay could literally be a death sentence. None of that mattered though. They had to teach these Christians that they are not allowed to think marriage is between a man and a woman.
How about the North Carolina bathroom bill from a few years ago? Again, how did the left react? Well, once again California banned their officials from doing business with the state. Hollywoke threatened to stop filming in the State. The NBA moved their all star game, etc. etc. etc.
Imagine that at 15 you can’t smoke, buy or drink alcohol in Oregon. You can’t get married. You can get married at the age of 17, but you need your parents permission. Guess what? In Oregon, you do not need your parents’ permission to begin “transition” surgery. So once again the values of the state take precedence over parental rights.
At the following story in the link below, a judge removed a 17 year old teen from the custody of the child’s parents, and placed her under the care of the child’s grand parents. Why? Because the parents refused to allow the kid to get hormone treatment.
Said the judge, “It is unfortunate that this case required resolution by the Court as the family would have been best served if this could have been settled within the family after all parties had ample exposure to the reality of the fact that the child truly may be gender non-conforming and has a legitimate right to pursue life with a different gender identity than the one assigned at birth.”
Remember Chick fil A. and how the left tried to put them out of business a few years ago. It does not matter all of the good work that Chick-fil-A does. What matters more than anything is that they have traditional beliefs including traditional beliefs about marriage. Seems like they eventually won. Chic-fil-A has blinked.

Ok, so that’s all for now. See what I did? I laid out my case in a manner that is clear and easy to understand, with examples to support my claim.
Tell me why I am wrong.
How’s that for a Ghish Gallup?
As Dennis Prager says all the time, “being on the left means never having to say you are sorry.” They can cheat, lie, steal or do whatever they want to do without the fear of consequences.
President Joe Biden can be seen creeping women and girls all over the internet. There is a myriad of videos of this man behaving inappropriately with women all over the place. He’s sniffing their hair, he’s touching them, making improper comments and just behaving like a creepy old man.
He’s still doing it even as President.
No one is making this up. Just type this man’s name and do a Google or YouTube search, and the videos are innumerable.
We don’t have to make unsubstantiated accusations, or launch ad hominem attacks. We have the videos. We can see the women and girls squirming. We can see them trying to avoid his hansy pansy. We see the body language, and the looks of discomfort on their faces. No mind reading necessary.
How has the media responded to all of this over the years? Oh that’s just Joe being Joe. You know, Joe is the crazy uncle at the wedding. He does not mean anything by it. Come on now, we all know Joe. He’s a decent guy, etc, etc, etc.
When a woman who has accused him of sexual assault for years brings up the issue again, all talk about believing women goes out the window. Media houses make a left turn and she becomes the villain.
The double standard is thick and palpable!
The same goes for Joey’s racist comments and behavior over the years. Once again, you don’t have to pretend to know what’s in his mind. You don’t have to sling accusations his way. And you don’t have to do any deep diving to find him making all kinds of racist comments all over the place
Here are just a couple of his racist comments over the years that leftists who claim to hate racism make excuses for:
If you vote for Trump you ain’t black.
Unlike the African American community, with notable exceptions, the Latino community is an incredibly diverse community with incredibly different attitudes about different things.
Unchain Wall Street. They’re gonna put y’all back in chains.
The reason I was able to stay sequestered in my home is because some black lady was able to stack the grocery shelf.
This dude said that the woman he is going to pick to run as his running mate for Vice President has to be a woman from a particular race of people. Then a year later he exempted the people of every other race in America to fill a vacancy on the Supreme Court, a federal job, violating all kinds of civil rights laws in the process.
The mindless sycophants on the left shouted yay, awesome, yippee. Our racism is righteous racism.
The guy is a walking gaffe machine, race baiting hustler.
His record, his actual record matters not to the left. He serves their purpose. Pay no attention when they send their virtual signals your way. These people are hypocrites of the highest order. Everything they accuse you of, just look around the corner from where they stand, they are guilty of doing it.
