Different Strokes for Different Folks

In the world in which we now live–where certain people are not allowed to speak or write about certain topics–it’s heartening to learn that even though some folks are silenced, others are not (but only because the silencers are confounded when it comes to treating these other folks the same way they treat the silenced folks).

Equity. It’s only a word. In this instance, it’s a blessing to us that equity isn’t being delivered to certain folks.

POV Potpourri

newsies

A potpourri of items from the web and in the news, with some (let’s hope) pertinent comments upon them:

First up, Chicago Mayor Lightfoot spends long minutes quibbling with a reporter because he called violence in her city last summer “race riots.” After excoriating him for his opinion that these were race riots, she then admonished him for criticizing her own opinion, false though it may be, that 99.9% of criticism thrown her way is only because she’s black, female, (and lesbian). So reporters don’t have a “right” to critique her opinions but she seems to believe that she has a right to critique theirs. Different strokes!

No Justice

pic1 - Copy

Presenting three different situations for your consideration. Above is a photo of the McCloskeys defending their home from “protesters” in St. Louis, MO, who were actually trespassers. There is no doubt that these people were trespassing on a private street and some even on the McCloskeys’ private property. Whether or not they broke the gate, they walked right by a “no trespassing” sign, opened the gate, and entered a private subdivision. The McCloskeys, seeing the militant, chanting trespassers, felt threatened and defended their property with weapons, one of which was not even functional. This case is well known. The McCloskeys, the victims, were indicted by a grand jury and await trial. No “protesters” were arrested for trespassing or for threatening the couple.

Détente with the Left?

In the aftermath of the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Steve Hilton has called for  people to embrace their “humanity” and end the “madness” exhibited by most Democrats, some members of the media, and all the radical leftists who now promise to “burn” the system down, or “blow” it up, or riot, because once again they intend to do everything in their power to deny President Trump the powers of the office to which he was elected in 2016, in this instance the power to nominate Ginsburg’s replacement.

Puppet and Panderer

Ok. I’ve had it with Democrat politicians and the media hiding facts from the public so they can pursue a false narrative. Their blatant lies divide our nation along racial lines and they don’t care because their goal is to defeat President Trump by any means necessary.

Saul Alinsky Says: Fight Back

In a letter to the editor of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, a reader argued that U.S. Representative Ann Wagner’s votes align 95% of the time with President Donald Trump’s policies, despite that women have accused him of alleged “sexual assault.”

The headline placed above this letter by the notoriously progressive leftist newspaper editors sums up the letter thusly:

You can’t vote for Trump and be against sexual abuse

A Timely Reminder

Cleaning clutter, whiling away dreary locked-down hours, I ran across a little book, stored away among the effects of a small but mighty man, a legendary figure in our family, who fled to the U.S. as a political refugee during the early 1920s. His copy of the book, What Every Citizen Should Know, was printed in 1940, at the beginning of WWII, apparently a gift from a friend in the American Legion. I was particularly struck by the following two pages from the book.

Institutional Racism

This is exactly what institutional racism looks like.

The City of Seattle held a racially segregated employee training session aimed at White staffers and instructing them on “undoing your own whiteness” in order to be held accountable by people of color, according to documents obtained by a public records request.

Fueling Fires

Never one to refrain from pouring gasoline on any racial fire, promoting racial division, or invoking and exploiting racial identity politics, former president Obama today cited an incident in Central Park, comparing it to the death of George Floyd in Minnesota, a death which has sparked violent rioting and caused at least one other death.

The War on White Males

After the past few weeks, who doesn’t have PTSD? The Kavanaugh confirmation process has left everyone in the country stressed, whether they were for Kavanaugh or against him. At least those of us who support the rule of law, the Constitution, and our Republic have the satisfaction of knowing that justice has prevailed (as the Justice has prevailed).
