You know what? I don’t give a bat’s nether regions whether or not Halloween “marginalizes” anyone. It’s fun. It’s nostalgic. It’s at least a quasi-religious holiday that has special meaning to many. As such, it deserves respect. Halloween also has cultural connotations for certain ethnic groups and cultures. As such, it deserves respect–as much as Juneteenth, Ramadan, MLK Day, Cinco de Mayo, Chinese New Year, Diwali, and many other holidays, memorials, or celebrations. This, after all, is America, the melting pot of the world.

As mobs gather across our country to “honor” George Floyd, let’s take more than a moment to remember the brave, proud, patriotic, glorious young men who stormed the beaches of Normandy 76 years ago today, so that we all might remain free.
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.

Someone got a snap of President Trump’s notes from a recent press conference discussing the Chinese Coronavirus Pandemic. During the past few pressers, the President has been plagued by idiots in the White House press corps grilling and excoriating him because he says the pandemic is caused by a “Chinese virus.”
This, they say, is racist, offensive to Chinese-Americans, encourages xenophobia and “puts Asian-Americans at risk.”

We’ll soon see what “smart justice” will look like, under progressives. First, a little background, from the Los Angeles Times no less: [emphasis added to quotes]
… Robert McCulloch’s 28-year tenure as St. Louis County prosecutor came to a sudden, unexpected end.
In a Democratic primary election, McCulloch got trounced 57% to 43% by Wesley Bell, a city councilman from the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson, Mo.
You might remember McCulloch. For a brief moment, on Nov. 24, 2014, he was the most-watched law enforcement official in America.
That night, eastern Missouri was bracing for violence as McCulloch announced that a grand jury had declined to indict police Officer Darren Wilson for fatally shooting unarmed 18-year-old Michael Brown after a struggle in the city of Ferguson.

Several interesting items appeared in the news, recently. One national, the other local, but touching upon a national story.
The first item comes from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. The story provides local interest attached to the saga of Stormy Daniels, the woman who allegedly had an “intimate relationship” with now-President Donald J. Trump over a decade ago. Daniels entered into a “hush agreement” that she wants to go back on, now offering to return the $130,000 she took to keep quiet (among other things). She’s suing to have the agreement declared void. Her lawyer was the subject of a recent lifestyles column.

The canard that “whites” will soon no longer be the majority racial category in this country has become almost a “known known.” Whites currently comprise nearly 77% of the population, but because progressives have a vested interest in dividing the population along racial and ethnic lines, the Obama administration played games with statistics to ensure that whites become a minority as soon as possible.
