Individual Free-Will Racism

Standard

If it wasn’t for the extreme anti-Conservative bias of the Media clouding the minds of many Americans, they would be able to clearly focus on the causes of the current social unrest and violence.

One of the primary causes of social unrest, in the summer of 2017, is the absolutely false belief that “institutional racism” still exists.

Right now there are American citizens who are so confused and who hold so much irrational anger that they are attacking statues and monuments, erected to honor people who long ago died for what they truly believed were noble causes. Anger can bring about positive change when it is properly directed but irrational anger changes nothing and is offensive to everyone but the actors.

Today’s confused citizens who are smashing and defacing historical symbols can’t possibly be deranged enough to think that they can change history. The majority of these vandals don’t even understand American history. The War Between the States happened! Slavery happened! Slavery, however, was not limited to the Southern States, nor was it their invention, nor was it the sole cause of the War Between the States.

The Southern States had their own established government, had their own flag and they held those things sacred. The newly organized government in the North was viewed as a threat to their independence and to the very existence of the Confederacy.  The South also had a profitable agricultural economy that was dependent on having workers to plant, tend and harvest crops. The South was fighting to keep it’s economy going, and yes, that economy was dependent on slave labor, but it was also fighting against a government in the North that threatened its very existence; which is the same thing the Northern States would have done if the South had been powerful enough to threaten it’s existence.

Today, there is no doubt that racism still exists and individual groups of racists are still actively trying to make us believe that they are somehow relevant . . . but they are not! Institutional racism, the racism that can be controlled by laws and government edicts, has been all but eliminated; but ‘individual/free will racism’ is still alive. This is the racism that has been passed down by generations; a racism born of fear and ignorance that has morphed into modern society one individual at a time; It is fear and hatred based on tradition, not fact . . . but tradition has a longer memory than fact.

The President spoke about Charlottesville, VA . . . now it’s my turn

Standard

In Charlottesville, VA this past weekend, intolerance took control of the hearts and minds of the participants on ALL sides. It’s always been there and the white separatists are partially at blame in this case, but NOT, as the media wants you to believe, totally to blame. These KKK, Neo-Nazi and etc. organizations are indeed “hate” groups but they came to stage a Constitutionally protected and state sanctioned legal protest, as is their right to do. The protest was purportedly against the planned removal of a Confederate War Memorial statue but possibly they came just to stir up the hate groups on the Left they knew would come to challenge them and start trouble. They received permission from the city of Charlotteville to hold their protest . . . but then, sure enough, the troublemakers, the instigators of violence on the Left showed up uninvited.

Granted, this country should have very little tolerance for ANY organizations or groups that promote hatred, but that includes groups not only from the far Right but also from the far Left. The media, of course, makes very little mention of the fact that this was a legal and sanctioned peaceful protest on the part of the white separatist organizations, and it could have been just that, a peaceful protest; but it appears that there are many Americans on the Left who feel that the Constitutional Rights granted under the First Amendment, the right of “freedom of speech” and the “right of the people peaceably to assemble” should not apply to these organizations.

Many ‘counter-protest’ groups arrived (notably, because they are “Lefties” they remain unnamed in the media) apparently for the sole purpose of denying the free speech of the protesters. One ‘black separatist’ organization, BLM, named itself by carrying it’s banner. They had no legal right to be there protesting on that day, they arrived only to stir up trouble.

The lack of tolerance among Americans (and others) is a disease with no real cure. It seems that a basic tenant of humanity is believing you are right, defending that belief, and never admitting you are wrong; even if you are proven wrong and know it . . . all in the name of an ignorant, misplaced pride.

You might have noticed that the Left continues to blame hatred, violence, prejudice, poverty, and even North Korea on President Donald Trump.

Donald Trump was not elected president to champion political correctness, to kiss the posteriors of those on he Left, or to make nice with the media. He was elected president because he spoke clearly and told American citizens what is wrong with: this country’s economy; it’s infrastructure; it’s lack of security; it’s deteriorating cities, and it’s weakened military. By doing this, he clearly defined the damage that Liberalism has caused and continues to cause this country, especially during the rein of President Obama, who clearly hated the United States and what it traditionally stood for. The American people heard Donald Trump speak and clearly agreed with him. In spite of the many misstatements and outright lies you read in the Washington Post and New York Times, I firmly believe that the American people still do agree with Donald Trump.

The glaring fact that the Democratic Party is attempting to block everything that Donald Trump tries to do to keep his promises is not lost to the American people, and if there is any justice left in our political system, the Democratic Party will begin to pay for their lies, dirty deeds, and intransigence during the next midterm elections.
