Video Podcast – Enough with NFL Social Justice Already

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

So I found a couple of articles from the Sun Sentinel in Miami Florida about the ongoing ridiculousness of this social justice movement crap and the NFL.

It’s about one head coach, Brian Flores, of the Miami Dolphins who threw in with the social justice crowd by claiming that his own story was one of social justice.

I discuss this being a problem on several levels, but mostly, the coach missed a golden opportunity to tell his real life story of working hard in America, to achieve your goal. read more

If America is Racist – So are the Democrats

Yesterday, on his radio program, Rush Limbaugh was talking about how many modern progressive leftists have given up trying to “fix” our country. Now, they claim, it must be torn down and rebuilt in the image that the left envisions – a socialist utopia, where one size really does fit all, because everyone is the same … or else.

Evidently, according to an ever-increasing number of leftists, there’s just no saving and no redeeming the United States.

Why exactly does this new breed of leftists feel this way about their own country?

Well, it goes back to the days of slavery. Then after emancipation – Jim Crow, segregation, racism and the Klan.

This they claim is America’s permanent legacy, and one that apparently cannot be erased or otherwise expunged. The only answer is to tear it down and start over.

But this poses a couple of problems for the left – namely, reparations and the democrat party. read more

Oh Rats!! Baltimore Does Have a Problem

And as has been confirmed by Dan Bongino this morning – it’s impossible to “spread the blame,” as Baltimore has not elected a single Republican in 70 years or so.

from the Daily Caller:

Baltimore Rat Infestation Is So Bad They Made A Documentary About It 2 Years Ago

The Baltimore rat problem President Donald Trump tweeted about Saturday is apparently so extensive that it was the subject of a documentary two years ago.

The president’s tweets took aim at Democratic Maryland Rep. Elijah Cummings, who has been very critical of the administration’s immigration and migrant detention policies, calling his home district in Baltimore “rodent infested.” read more

WND Exclusive – A New Proposal on Reparations the Left Won’t Like

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell continues to get verbally beaten by Democrats over his refusal to deal with reparations to the descendants of slaves in America.

“I don’t think reparations for something that happened 150 years ago, for whom none of us currently living are responsible, is a good idea,” McConnell said.

But naturally, this is not good enough for the Dems. They still insist that it’s only fair that America pay for its “original sin.” read more

Kaepernick Cherry-Picks Frederick Douglass – Ted Cruz Sets Him Straight

from the Blaze:

Ted Cruz handles NYT writer who said he has ‘no business’ using Frederick Douglass’ name

The backstory

Kaepernick quoted the following part of a Douglass speech:

“What have I, or those I represent, to do with your national independence? This Fourth of July is yours, not mine…There is not a nation on the earth guilty of practices more shocking and bloody than are the people of these United States at this very hour.”

 

Ruminations of the Day – Kamala Harris and Antifa

Sometimes, there’s just too much happening all at once, so it makes it difficult to decide on a topic. So instead, how about two?

One:

Here we go again with the birther thing. Really?! And it’s not even a birther question. People are just calling it that.

It worked so well last time, that someone said to themselves – self, I know we looked like complete idiots before with the whole Barack Obama birth certificate. Because of our idiocy, a new word was even coined: birther.

This time the sights have been set on Kamala Harris. No, unlike Obama, no one is claiming Harris was born elsewhere and thus not an American citizen. Websites and supposed journalists are just using the “birther” moniker because it’s more sensational.

Some black guy, Ali Alexander, tweeted that he’s tired of Kamala Harris trying to “rob American blacks of our history.” read more

Reparations – Who Pays and Who Gets?

from Walter Williams at Townhall:

Reparations for Slavery

Several Democratic presidential hopefuls are calling for Americans to make reparations for slavery. On June 19, the House judiciary subcommittee on the constitution, civil rights, and civil liberties held a hearing. Its stated purpose was “to examine, through open and constructive discourse, the legacy of the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade, its continuing impact on the community and the path to restorative justice.” read more

WaPo Can’t Help Itself – Trashes Military Even On Anniversary of D-Day

from NewsBusters:

It’s the 75th anniversary of D-Day. Getting a little choked up about the endless lines of white crosses and the few stooped and wizened survivors being rolled slowly among them? Feeling slightly in awe of men who could scale Pointe du Hoc, drag themselves up the shingle on Omaha or jump from an airplane into tracers and flak? Feeling, well, a touch grateful? That’s nice. Time’s up. read more

NYC Spending $23 Million to Check Teachers’ Whiteness

New York City, like most cities run by leftists, is heavily and desperately in debt. They currently have approximately $58.5 billion in assets available to pay bills totaling $244 billion. In other words, that’s over $64,000 per NYC taxpayer. Yet this never seems to matter when implementing another idiotic leftist feel-good program.

I mean – what’s another $23 million, flushed down the proverbial toilet, to advance the social justice, liberal agenda.

from the New York Post:

Teachers allegedly told to favor black students in ‘racial equity’ training

In controversial “implicit bias” training, New York City’s public-school educators have been told to focus on black children over white ones — and one Jewish superintendent who described her family’s Holocaust tragedies was scolded and humiliated, according to firsthand accounts.

A consultant hired by the city Department of Education told administrators at a workshop that “racial equity” means favoring black children regardless of their socio-economic status, sources said. read more

It’s Unfair to Judge the Past Through a Modern Day Lens

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

We in America have developed a nasty habit of judging past events with present day standards. This is a big mistake. And a bigger mistake is the judgment of individuals who’ve contributed so much, just because they had one indiscretion, or worse, a perceived indiscretion.

In both New York City and Philadelphia, the iconic singer Kate Smith is being erased from history.

After it was uncovered that Smith, “sang racially insensitive songs in the early 1930s,” the New York Yankees pulled Smith’s famous rendition of “God Bless America,” from their song rotation. The NHL team, the Philadelphia Flyers, had a statue of her torn down and hauled away for the same reason. They have also ditched the song. read more
