A Slave Auction in 2017 America

I don’t think anyone would ever mistake me for a leftist – not even being left leaning. There’s not much about them that makes any sense and the decisions they make, the opinions they have, tend to be highly contradictory at times.

Their views on children, for example. They teach children about separation of Church and State, but dress them up in Hijabs, conduct mock prayers to Allah and teach them the Five Pillars of Islam.

They teach children about the dangers of predatory men in the schoolyard, the playground, on the streets and online. Yet they insist that everyone should be able to use the same bathroom.

The left insists on coddling children – protecting them from every potentially dangerous or controversial situation (when it suits their political agenda). They claim that we must shield them from disappointment and anything which can damage a young student’s self-esteem or hurt their little feelings. read more

The Lefts Special Ability to See Racism

I find it fascinating that the only culture not worth preserving is Western culture, and particularly American culture.

No matter how long I lived in – pick a country – say – Mexico, I would never be afforded the title of hyphenated countryman. Regardless of my insistence, I would never be considered American-Mexican, or American Hispanic. No one would come to my aid and insist that my American heritage must be preserved – that it would add to or somehow strengthen Mexican culture. There would be no protests, no marches, no picket signs, no pressing two for English. And those in Mexico would have little patience with me flying the American flag. They would expect me to assimilate, and rightly so.

Yet, as we are well aware, there is no such expectation in America. Quite the opposite. We are the ones who are expected to accept and celebrate everyone else’s culture but our own, allowing them to live as they would like, as permanent house guests. This, we are told, is multiculturalism and is indeed to be celebrated as somehow strengthening our nation.

Because of this we are slowly losing our identity, our culture – what it means to be American.

Recently, Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, landed himself in hot water with the liberal elite for stating this very thing. He was interviewed  by the poster-boy of leftist elitism, CNN’s Chris Cuomo. Cuomo immediately began attacking King regarding a tweet by the Republican in support of a comment made by Dutch politician Geert Wilders. read more

Flint Lead Poisoning was Actually Caused by Racism

Remember in 2015, the headlines were monopolized by the Flint, Michigan water crisis? In 2014, a decision was made to begin drawing the city’s drinking water from the Flint River, while they waited to reconnect to another source. By 2015, it was discovered that some children had elevated lead levels. After that, mass-hysteria took hold and the blame game was off and running.

Regardless of whether the science mates properly with the hyperbole, which is does not, there is no putting the lead genie back in the bottle. If you care to compare the actual science with the unhinged, you may read my article entitled, “Flint Lead Problems Just Got Worse.”

Now, some two years later and the problems in Flint have resurfaced. Uh-oh…did they find more lead in the water…or arsenic…or old lace? What is it man?!

No – none of that. As it turns out, because Flint is 57% black and only 37% white, the lead crisis is racist. read more

Don’t TIP Your Wait Staff – It’s Racist

by: the Common Constitutionalist

People do some pretty dopey things in the name of idealism. But this is America, where a private citizen or even a private business owner can be as dumb as they wish.

Danny Meyer

Danny Meyer, the mega-millionaire owner and founder of the popular chain of “Shake Shack” burger joints has decided that the wait staff at his 100 locations will no longer be allowed to accept tips for good service.

And why? Well, he says tipping is racist. Yes tipping was developed to skirt post-Civil War slavery laws, despite the fact it was in use in Europe well before the war.

He adds that black wait staff also are tipped below their white counterparts.

Meyer calls the tip, which is short for “To Insure Promptitude,” one of the biggest hoaxes ever pulled on an entire culture. You don’t see it in Asia, you don’t see it primarily in most European countries.” Ummm…yeah you do – maybe not in Japan, but certainly in Europe.

Still if Meyer wishes to use a socialist model for his restaurants, where outcomes are equal, regardless of performance, he’s welcome to do so. He’s welcome to remove the incentive for his employees to do a better job for their customers.

This got me to thinking. What else in America should be ceased, halted or eradicated because of racism, or at the very least developed or promoted by racists? Turns out – lots of things. read more

Podcast – Obama Says Country Will be Browner – French Woman Engaged to a Robot

Like Mayor Ray Nagin said after Hurricane Katrina, that New Orleans will be a “Chocolate City,” outgoing (thankfully) president Obama tells NPR that regardless what happens, America will be a “Browner Country.”

A French Woman named Lilly has expressed her love and devotion to her robot partner, whom she 3D printed herself. She says she is love with her Robot and wishes to marry it. Who didn’t see this coming. read more

Same Old Lies Emerge Regarding Jeff Sessions

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Any reasonable individual would consider Senator Jeff Sessions to be a good man and a defender of the Constitution. However, the left is hardly reasonable and has already vowed to make it difficult for him to be confirmed as the next U.S. Attorney General.

I have no doubt that they will play the card which has been successful in the past – the race card. This is of course is their go-to attack against any Republican or conservative they find distasteful – which is all of them.

We should prepare ourselves for the attacks by democrats Senators and their stenographers in the press to dredge up all the old lies and accusations from Sessions’ past confirmation hearing in 1986 when he was nominated, but denied, a federal judgeship.

The leftist press, with fresh marching orders from the dems, is already working overtime to reintroduce the racist Sessions to the people and other lawmakers too young to remember what a terrible person he was and must still be. read more

Post-Racial Obama

from Michelle Malkin:

Here is what eight years of President Obama’s “post-racial” reign have wrought.

The weekend before Election Day, Hillary Clinton grinned from ear to ear at a Cleveland rally while reciting a verse from Jay-Z’s remix of Young Jeezy’s “My President is Black.” As the rapper and his Black Lives Matter-promoting wife, Beyonce, beamed on stage nearby, pandersuit-clad Clinton twanged with a stilted accent:

“Remember, Jay memorably said: ‘Rosa Parks sat so Martin Luther could walk, and Martin Luther walked so Barack Obama could run, and Barack Obama ran so all the children could fly.'” read more

A Unique Look at Woodrow Wilson

Stu Burguiere of the Blaze and side kick of Glenn Beck present a nice little history lesson regarding one of the left’s heroes, progressive icon and 28th President of the United States, Woodrow Wilson. I guess we really weren’t any smarter back then, for until Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton – there has never been a more evil Chief Executive (save for FDR).

Enjoy the history lesson: read more

People Demand Professor be Fired for Saying Black Lives Matter is like the KKK

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Sorry – no Audio Version

It almost seems like a broken record, reporting and commenting on the death of college free speech. If there weren’t so darn many examples of bias and outright animosity toward free speech on college campuses, it would easier to ignore.

Douglas Muir is a rather unassuming restaurant owner and engineering professor at the University of Virginia. However, he made the critical mistake of posting a comment, “responding to a Facebook post that included a photograph of a recent appearance by BLM co-founder Alicia Garza in Charlottesville.” Garza was speaking at a nearby theater on “Rooting Out Injustice…”

Anyone who is familiar with Garza knows she is a leftist radical and professional race-hustler. Evidently Professor Muir is acquainted with the work of Garza, as he posted that, “Black Lives Matter is biggest racist organization since the Klan. Are you kidding me. Disgusting!!!”

Of course he is correct, but on college campuses today, being right is as good as being white – and completely immaterial. Phony calls for diversity and inclusion (of all who agree) are the only things that matter, and will be the only things considered.

For stating his opinion, Professor Muir is paying a steep price. In no time flat his University threw him under the bus, stating: “A recent comment regarding the Black Lives Matter movement, posted on social media by Doug Muir, a lecturer in our school, has raised serious concerns about UVA Engineering’s commitment to diversity, inclusion and support of populations that are traditionally underrepresented in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.”

Yes, let us not concern ourselves with teaching engineering and math. Let us instead make a “commitment to diversity and inclusion.” That will keep America competitive with the rest of the world. read more

Saturday Night Live Diversity Hire Backfires

by: the Common Constitutionalist

I am not a fan of Saturday Night Live. Frankly I’m stunned it is still being aired. In my opinion, with few exceptions – Chris Farley comes to mind – the show hasn’t been any good since the members of the original cast left – amongst them were Dan Akroyd, John Belushi, Jane Curtin, Lariane Newman, Garret Morris and Gilda Radner. It’s still hard to believe the show is almost 42 years old, as the first airing was in 1975.

But in all that time and with hundreds of different cast members, there has not been a single Hispanic woman who has done anything more than a guest appearance.

You may be thinking – so what – who cares – least of all the Common Constitutionalist. After all, is this not just liberal group think – what the left preaches to us regularly – that thinks are not fair unless everyone is somehow “represented.”

Yes of course, which why I’m bringing it up.

On September 12, 2016, Saturday Night Live (SNL) finally did something about. Amidst much ballyhoo, it was announced that Melissa Villaseñor was joining the cast for its upcoming season. It was to be a “seminal moment” for representation of Latinos in comedy. Evidently this is important to the left – I guess because a black or white woman telling jokes or starring in skits is completely different. read more
