Open Thread

Harris was picked because of her skin color and gender. That’s it. That is all she brings to the table. It is all she’s ever brought to the table. She has no accomplishments; no intellect…nothing except the right amount of melanin, the right internal plumbing and a (D) after her name in California.

In a normal world, President Trump would get a Peace Prize for the dealhe brokered between UAE and Israel…which does seem to be the precursor to the general recognition of Israel by the Arab powers. Only Iran and their proxies will be left out in the cold. Keep in mind: this was done and no one had a clue. In the crucial matters, the Trump Administration does not leak. Keep that in mind the next time an MSMer says “sources” are saying something. They either don’t have a source, or they are being played.

Let’s hope it works out…and now I think I see why Jared Kushner has been targeted of late. He’s been central to Trump’s dealings with the Middle East and someone got wind that something as in the works…someone who doesn’t like Trump and Israel, and so tried to play up an anti-Semitic angle against Trump’s son-in-law.

Sean Ono Lennon is…a bit red-pilled. I’ve been seeing his comments of late on Twitter…he’s, of course, got a deep respect for his father but he also doesn’t seem to have any illusions. He also seems to have a first-rate mind. Credit Yoko with raising a kid who knows how to think.

The thing about ‘Rona testing “errors” is that the error always seems to be an over-count. They are just making stuff up, guys.

A man murders, execution style, a 5 year old child. Rather newsworthy event, don’t you think? But you haven’t heard it, have you? Because the child was white and the man was black. Had it been the other way around, you would have heard about it – endlessly. I bring this up not to shove more horror into your daily life but to once again, and very graphically, illustrate what I’ve been saying: the MSM lies. They lie all the time. They lie about everything. No matter how one looks at this story, it is a major story…it is something for headlines and to lead the national TV reports and for a series of think pieces…but, nothing. Because it doesn’t fit the Narrative. Nothing outside the Narrative will be reported in the MSM…what you are getting in the MSM is a completely false idea of what is actually happening in America. The riots and the ‘Rona and all of that: just an op. The MSM saying what the DNC has ordered them to say because the DNC believes that such will help defeat Trump on November 3rd. And, who knows?, maybe it will: but it still won’t make what the MSM says true. For all we know, Trump is actually poised for a landslide victory: we won’t know until the votes are counted. The MSM will not report a reality which is working well for Trump…if they have to simply make up things out of whole cloth to make things look bad for Trump, that is what they will do.

    As a little experiment I have been saying, to people I have never met before (like the service manager at my new tractor store) or people I don’t talk to about politics (like the woman who cuts my hair) “I can tell you the exact day the panic over this virus will end” and every one of them instantly says “November 4th.”

    Nov. 4 is indeed the day the MSM will cease reporting on COVID because new impeachment hearings will take all the air time. And instead of “MSM”, let’s just call them “MSP” – main stream propaganda

    MSNBC may have accidentally said this out loud yesterday, but their third world authoritarian tendencies run strong … purge like strong

    JASON JOHNSON: Someone, once Biden takes office, is going to be tasked with going through this entire administration with a fine-tooth comb, and basically, expunging all of the Trumpists, like getting rid of the Ba’ath Party in Iraq. Like, somebody’s got to go through and find all of these incompetent, unqualified, corrupt, white nationalist-supporting people that Trump has burrowed into our State Department, burrowed into our Justice Department.

    And I think Senator Harris would be fantastic at finding those people and removing them. Because she will have the skill set to not only get rid of the officials and the bureaucrats, she can help us impeach some of these judges, these under qualified judges that Donald Trump has managed to push in

    If you listen to Democrats they eventually tell you exactly what they have been doing – projection is a concept not yet fully understood amongst the Left. If Biden wins a purge is coming folks, by a brown skinned third world authoritarian immigrant – just exactly what the Founders hoped for.

      1. Yes, Harris would probably be good at this kind of thing. It seems to match her personality.

      2. Personnel actions which discriminate among employees based on marital status, political activity, or political affiliation are prohibited by the Civil Service Reform Act (not that laws bother the Left)

      3. This “burrowing into” agencies reached its zenith when Obama elites moved in droves from his administration into executive positions in federal agencies to try to keep Leftist control active. The “burrowing in” comment is an inadvertent reference to the application of so many Obama people to other agencies.

      4. You are right, the Left IS telegraphing its intent to go full throttle on typical Leftist tactics, including purges

    SYSTEMIC RACISM

    A Justice Department investigation has found Yale University favored black students and illegally discriminated against white and Asian American applicants, in violation of federal civil rights law, officials said.

    The findings were detailed in a letter to the college’s attorneys on Thursday, following a two-year investigation after students had complained about the application process at some Ivy League schools.

    WOKE Democrats winning hearts and minds:

    At this point one of the other organizers called for a pause so he could say something. “Hey guys, do you know that you are living in a historically black neighborhood right now?” he shouted from the street. “Do you know that before your white ass came here this was all black people?” he added. “Do you know that people like you came in here and basically bought all the land from the black people less than what it was worth, kicked them out so you could live here? Do you know that? Cause if you don’t, now you f**kin do so do something about it.”

    “Open your wallet,” the woman with the bullhorn interjected.

    The other organizer shouted, “How do you plan to fix it because you are living on black people’s land right now.” He quickly corrected himself, “I mean native land but black people lived here too.”

    The woman on the bullhorn had a suggestion for how to fix it. “Is your name [inaudible] or John, whatever it is, give up your house. Give black people back their homes. You’re sitting their comfortably—comfortable as f**k as if they didn’t help gentrify this neighborhood.” She continued, “I used to live in this neighborhood and my family was pushed out and you’re sitting up there having a good time with your other white friends.”

    If white people were not in the world, would black people even exist?

      Before the Asian immigrants who crossed the Bering Strait to settle on this continent, or the black, or Indian or whoever took residence here, the land was occupied by bison, wolves and other wildlife. So we should all just relocate, somehow, to some place never previously occupied by any living creature, in the name of “restorative justice”. If only we could bring back the T Rex and the stegosaurus we could finally achieve true justice.

      Failing that, the white man can give the land back to the Indians and black people can go back to their own lands. Funny how the restoration concept stops at getting white people kicked out.

      And BTW, I am pretty sure the woman with the bullhorn was lying. I will bet she never lived in that neighborhood.

  6. Amazona August 14, 2020 / 10:42 am

    Speaking of laws not bothering the Left, the newly elected Progressive Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt is refusing to prosecute people arrested for committing crimes during the riots.

    He has stated his goal of establishing “restorative justice” and sees those arrested as merely participating in “protests” and therefore deserving of special treatment, “..to kind of honor the fact that they were there protesting and wanting to be heard.” He wants his office to be involved in “…creating a venue where they could do that as part of some sort of negotiated dismissal.”

    Hmmm. Funny, but that’s not his job description. I couldn’t find a signed copy of his oath of office, but I did find others for Assistant District Attorneys, and they all swore to “…support the Constitution of the United States, the Constitution of the State of Oregon, and the laws thereof, and that I will faithfully discharge the duties of Assistant Attorney General according to the best of my ability, so help me God.” This is a sworn oath.

    How does Mike Schmidt see his job? (emphasis mine)

    Schmidt, who took office a week ago after his predecessor unexpectedly announced an early retirement, said he worked with members of his transition team, activists involved in the protest movement and attorneys in the DA’s office to draft the policy.

    After 74 days of protest, Schmidt said the Portland Police Bureau and Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office expressed concern the policy would be interpreted as condoning violence.

    “I understand what they’re concerned about,” Schmidt said. “But at the same time, they have their job and their duties, and that means that they will make an arrest when they see that the law’s been broken. And then I have my job and my duties, which is to have the discretion on whether or not to pursue charges.”

    That is, he sees his job as one of consulting with lawbreakers and their organizers and then making his personal arbitrary decisions about which laws he will enforce, based on his personal political leanings. He admits that arrests will occur when officers “see that the law’s been broken” but then he will decide if the breaking of the law is justified under his “discretion”. And I wonder how many criminals get to take part in discussions about whether they should be charged. I think I know how most of them would vote.

    The Left howls that Trump is a “dictator” but then choose and support officials who are not bound by the laws and who assume the authority to ignore and dismiss laws they don’t like, selectively prosecuting or not prosecuting people based on political agendas. Once laws are selectively applied we are on the slippery slope to anarchy and tyranny.

    • Cluster August 14, 2020 / 11:08 am

      Speaking of dictators, did anyone notice that Biden/Harris would impose mandatory mask wearing even in outdoor spaces for a minimum of 90 days?? There is zero science to support that policy but the media propagandists fawned over the “leadership”.

      Or how about Comey’s famous line – “no reasonable prosecutor” – the Left is already living in their own authoritarian banana republic and if Biden wins, they will compel the rest of the nation to live in that dystopia as well.

  7. Amazona August 14, 2020 / 3:55 pm

    Alex Pappas and Brooke Singman of Fox News are not only glaringly wrong when they proclaim Harris is a United States citizen born in California in 1964, making her eligible to serve as president or vice president under the Constitution they are contributing to the decline of Fox News as a reputable and unbiased news source. They are evidently firmly of the Left, depending as they seem to on the Magical Thinking that saying something makes it so.

    But that was topped by the hair-on-fire hysterics of the Biden campaign, breathlessly proclaiming “Donald Trump was the national leader of the grotesque, racist birther movement with respect to President Obama and has sought to fuel racism and tear our nation apart on every single day of his presidency,” Biden rapid response director Andrew Bates told Fox News in a statement. “So it’s unsurprising, but no less abhorrent, that as Trump makes a fool of himself straining to distract the American people from the horrific toll of his failed coronavirus response that his campaign and their allies would resort to wretched, demonstrably false lies in their pathetic desperation.”

    Speaking of “pathetic desperation”, that’s a pretty desperate-sounding screech.

    Back when Obama popped up on the national radar he was an unknown Senator with no background, no experience, and not much history other than years of claiming he had been born in Kenya. Therefore, responsible citizens taking their civic duties seriously sought to determine whether or not he was a Natural Born citizen. The level of strident pushback from the Left sent the message that this was such a sensitive subject any effort to investigate it would be met with adamant obstructionism and all-out attacks on anyone who asked. This has been cast, by the propagandists of the Left, as a “grotesque, racist birther movement ” and weaponized to use against anyone who ever asks any question about the eligibility of any future Democrat candidate, particularly one who checks enough Identity boxes.

    Andy managed to pack in as many talking screeching points as possible in his hysterical screed, going to his thesaurus for as many adjectives as he could string together. But what I heard was “Looking too hard at Kamala scares the snot out of us and we panic when you do” In other words, a toxic stew of freakout and the politics of personal destruction.

    • Retired Spook August 14, 2020 / 5:01 pm

      Bottom line, though, is that if she is NOT a natural born citizen, it will not matter, because they are above the law, and the Constitution is vague and stupid and outdated and was NEVER meant to exclude someone as special as Kamala from serving in the highest office in the land. And Republicans will say, Oh, OK — whatever. The ONLY remedy is for Trump and Pence to beat them so convincingly that they won’t even be a footnote in electoral history.

    The New York Times reported that the lawyer, Kevin Clinesmith, “who was assigned to the Russia investigation, plans to admit that he altered an email from the C.I.A. that investigators relied on to seek renewed court permission in 2017 for a secret wiretap on the former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page, who had at times provided information to the spy agency.”

      I wondered how long it would take to get from “Person of Color” to “black” to “African American”. Looks like it was a matter of hours, not days.

      But, you know, due to the lack of diversity among black people, any black has to be African American. Black is black, though if you vote for a Republican you aren’t really black.

    I don’t watch much TV in the summer but I had Fox on last night and was so ticked off I swore it would be the last time. The chyron said that Trump was fighting mail in voting although he votes by mail. Period. Who writes their copy? Adam Schiff? Trump has explained over and over again the difference between absentee voting, when the voter requests a ballot, and the scheme pushed by the Dems when ballots are just dumped out into the population without anyone asking for one, without even knowing if they are addressed to people still living, people still living in that precinct, etc. He has been unusually articulate about this, and Fox just lied.

    Totally off topic here,. but this has been bugging me for a long time now.

    Mark, you have written three books—lots and lots of words, presumably on a computer keyboard. So tell me—have you ever used the “Home” key? You know, the one that sends your cursor back to the beginning of the line?

    I’ve been trying to figure out why it is even there, and under what circumstances a typist would suddenly want to go back to the beginning of the line. A little experimenting taught me that the key next to “home”, which is “End”, will take the cursor back to the end of the line where I can continue, but I have been wondering if professional typists, such as authors like yourself, ever use this key or find it important.

    I keep hitting mine by accident, and suddenly finding my text all messed up and having to go back, delete what was crammed in at the beginning of what had been a perfectly fine sentence, and then pick up where I was interrupted. I am thinking of putting Super Glue on the key.

    Clearly I am tired of Biden and Harris and thinking of more interesting stuff.

    Like chickens. I have chickens this year and find them fascinating. I love my chickens. I’d rather talk about chickens than the endlessly boring and distasteful Democrats. One pecked me the other day and I identified her by her bigger beak, so I named her Kate—after Doc Holliday’s paramour, Katie Elder, also known as Big-Nose Kate. That’s how tired I am of Leftist antics and stupidity—it’s more interesting to name a chicken. (I’m having trouble naming the others as the only thing that is obvious about them is they all remind me of Mick Jagger. Can’t have 15 chickens named Mick. 14 now that I have a Kate.)

  12. Amazona August 15, 2020 / 11:32 am

    Basically, I’m just tired of stupid.

    I’m upset and concerned about the hard-eyed calculating and, to be honest, brilliant tactics of the leaders of the International Left. That’s one thing. That calls for serious analysis of what they are doing and serious countermeasures.

    No, I’m talking about bone-deep lack of intelligence blatantly STUPID. I’m just tired of it. And I’m tired of people who find it necessary to flaunt their stupidity, to make elaborate statements as if to call attention to it.

    Case in point: Some Hollywood moron ranted:

    There is no debate anymore. There’s no room for it in my book. We either make this happen. Or literally, more of us perish. People are dying. Someone I love died. This virus is real. If it hasn’t visited your doorstep, it will. Oh but, Kamala did this or she didn’t do that. I hear you. I know. And I don’t care. Because what she DIDN’T DO is abandon citizens in a pandemic, rip babies from their mother’s arms at the border, send federal troops to terrorize protestors, manufacture new ways to suppress Black and Brown votes, actively disrespect Indigenous people and land, traffic in white supremacist rhetoric in an effort to stir racist violence at every turn, attempt to dismantle most American democratic systems of checks and balance, degrade women all day everyday, infect the Supreme Court with another misogynist hack, demolish America’s standing on climate, actively cultivate and further white supremacist structures and systems across all aspects of American daily life. I mean, that’s what she DIDN’T do. So I don’t wanna hear anything bad about her. It doesn’t matter to me. Vote them in and then let’s hold them accountable. Anything other than that is insanity. It’s ego. It’s against our own interests. It’s selfish. It’s disrespectful to our elders. It’s nonsense. It’s talking to hear yourself talk. This is a matter of life or death. We need all our energy focused. This is a fight for more than can be expressed here. There is no debate anymore. Not for me anyway.

    It’s like she took a poll of her Hollywood fellow dumbasses and then listed their contributions to the Look How Stupid I Am screed.

    I can’t imagine what it would be like to go through life with this kind of vicious, vile, dark and hateful belief system. I would pity her, except that I dislike her so much for her spite and malice I think that being sentenced to live in her mind is appropriate.

    abandon citizens in a pandemic?
    rip babies from their mother’s arms at the border?
    send federal troops to terrorize protestors?
    manufacture new ways to suppress Black and Brown votes?
    actively disrespect Indigenous people and land?
    traffic in white supremacist rhetoric in an effort to stir racist violence at every turn?
    attempt to dismantle most American democratic systems of checks and balance (sic) ?
    degrade women all day everyday?
    infect the Supreme Court with another misogynist hack?
    demolish America’s standing on climate?
    actively cultivate and further white supremacist structures and systems across all aspects of American daily life?

    It truly is an alternate reality, in an alternate universe, with no relationship to the world we live in.

    She reminds me of the adage “Hating someone is like taking poison and waiting for the other guy to die”. She has taken the poison, all right, and you can see it bubbling through her system, much like we see with Joey and the Bimbo, Humpty Stelter, etc.

    Chaos erupted in Portland for a 79th consecutive night on Friday after police declared an unlawful assembly during a peaceful demonstration and stormed a protester shield line, beating people with batons. About 300 protesters had gathered in the city’s Peninsula Park around 9pm for a peaceful march across North Portland that was expected to end at the Police Association building on N Lombard Street. But even before demonstrators could begin heading towards their destination, cops – changing tactics from the previous nights – cut off access to the streets leading to the police union headquarters.

      One thing the media is NOT reporting is the number of deaths these riots across the country have produced. Most articles that even mention deaths are close to 2 months old.

      • Amazona August 16, 2020 / 3:07 pm

        As of June 4th:
        The death toll from the current riots is now higher than the number of unarmed African-Americans killed throughout the entirety of 2019.

        Of the 1004 people killed by American police in 2019, 371 were white, and 236 were black.

        ……………………….

        Of those people killed, 20 whites were unarmed and 10 blacks were unarmed.

        There have now been a total of at least 17 deaths as a result of the recent riots. Of those 17 deaths, just three were killed by police.

        On July 5: While the protests were peaceful, extensive riots across America emphatically were not. These riots came with a death toll of at least 21 people.

        But aside from versions of these stories….crickets

  14. Amazona August 15, 2020 / 2:30 pm

    I want to see lawsuits against every Oregon official who aided, abetted and enabled the riots. Period. I want to see them sued for every dollar the riots caused every person, and I want to see the state bankrupted (or bankrupted even further, given that it has been run by Democrats for so long) to repay those who have been victimized by their agenda-driven abandonment of their civil and legal duties.

    In the meantime, if the RNC and the state GOPs could get their heads out of their nether regions and stop being led down the garden path to focus on Biden and Harris, and start to focus on the reality of Dems in charge, we might be able to gain some traction. About Biden and Harris: THEY DON’T CARE We can have video of Harris riding a horse through groups of slaves whipping them for working too slowly, and THEY WON’T CARE. We can have video of Biden engaging in egregious corruption in China and Ukraine, and THEY WON’T CARE. Why do we think exposing these people will matter? DEMS DON’T CARE.

    Tell the people what it cost to allow these riots to continue, Start by pointing out the difference between a riot and a protest, and go on to outline the dollars cost, the businesses and livelihoods lost and the deaths caused by the abysmal abandonment of the jobs these people were elected to do. Screw the Dems. We won’t change more than a couple of Dem “minds”. We need the Independents, who haven’t been able to take a side on anything but might be swayed by the sheer insanity of Dem governance now that they can see its results in action. And we need black and brown people who are going to be less moved by the incompetence and corruption and sheer nastiness of the Dem ticket than by the end result of having them in power, which will be a plunge back into unemployment and general malaise.

    And put the original blame where it belongs—on the voters who put them in office, not necessarily because they believe in the political structure these people represent but just because they are not Republicans. Start hammering the utter foolishness of Identity Politics, and start seriously explaining the political structures that they represent. Make it clear that a vote is not for Candidate X but for the political structure his party endorses and will pursue.

    THIS IS THE LEFT. The rioting is what they do. The destruction is what they do. The intimidation is what they do. The looting is what they do. The purges are what they do. What we are seeing is tyranny on a small scale, as they strive to implement it nationwide. They are doing us the favor of finally doing it openly and publicly, and it is up to us to connect the dots and explain this to the public.

    Governor Kristi Noem, one of Trump’s most vocal allies, said the state did not need to accept the additional federal jobless aid because workers are being rehired and its economy is on the mend after enduring economic fallout spurred by the outbreak of COVID-19. Trump signed an executive memorandum on August 8 to replace the $600 boost an unemployed resident received in their weekly payments with a $400 weekly payment, a quarter of which will be paid by the state. Noem said Friday that she opted to forgo the cash in South Dakota entirely, claiming the state had recovered around 80 percent of its pandemic-related job losses.

    Instead, the media chooses Cuomo and Newsome as their COVID authorities. Do you think Democrats have a problem with “strong women”

      Do you think Democrats have a problem with “strong women”

      They definitely have a problem with strong CONSERVATIVE women, which tells you everything you need to know about the Democrat Party’s support for “women.”

        Well, they mistake “strident” for strong, so worship screechers like AOC, Jamie Lee Curtis and Alyssa Whosis.

    It’s beginning ….

    Protests across the United States calling for an end to police brutality were held on Saturday – frequently descending into brawls and tense stand-offs. In Chicago rioters hit police, while shots were fired in Portland. In Michigan, a brawl broke out in Kalamazoo between far-right Proud Boys and anti-racism activists, at a rally organized by a local church. Saturday marked the 80th day of protests since George Floyd was killed on May 25.

    These WOKE progressives are soon to find out who real Americans are.

      These WOKE progressives are soon to find out who real Americans are.

      They are starting to get a taste of Real America. They got literally run out of two Colorado towns, chased out by crowds making it clear they were not welcome and thumped a little on the way, and then decided go for the gold in the Just How Stupid Do You Think I Am? sweepstakes when a handful of Antifa stooges went to…..STURGIS!!!!

      Yeah, like that’s gonna end well. For the stooges, anyway. When you send some weenies like Antifa to a town packed to overflowing with bikers wearing shirts like “Stomp My Flag and I’ll Stomp Your Ass” you are showing a serious disconnect with reality.

      But then, they ARE Antifa, so that is already baked in.

      Lucky for them, Sturgis has not defunded its police department. Lucky for them, the Sturgis police have a lot of experience in dealing with motorcycle gangs and their various antics so were able to protect the stooges from their much-deserved whuppin’.

      Hey, Daily Mail—start practicing a little real journalism and stop calling these riots “protests”.

      • Cluster August 16, 2020 / 12:01 pm

        I noticed that too … in fact in one paragraph they called Antifa “counter protestors” … ugh

    Stupid is as Stupid does …

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez blasts the NYPD union’s endorsement of Trump and says there’s a ‘potential problem’ over law enforcement choosing ‘preferred candidates’

    Ummm Sandy honey, the police unions have always endorsed candidates and 9 times out 10, each year that candidate was a Democrat. But now that you have hijacked the Democrat Party …. police unions want nothing to do with you. It’s called Choice … Democrats use to be pro choice you dimwitted POS.

    You know the good thing is … no one has to speculate what a Biden Presidency would look like. It’s playing out in real time:

    Makeshift tents line the popular tourist destination of Venice Beach, centre, while a homeless man is pictured inset on Hollywood’s Walk Of Fame. Another homeless person is seen top right. More tents in Melrose Place, one of the trendiest addresses in Los Angeles, are pictured bottom right. Junkies and the homeless, many of whom are clearly mentally ill, walk the palm-lined streets like zombies – all just three blocks from multi-million-dollar homes overlooking the Pacific. Stolen bicycles are piled high on pavements littered with broken syringes. TV bulletins are filled with horror stories from across the city; of women being attacked during their morning jog or residents returning home to find strangers defecating in their front gardens. Today, Los Angeles is a city on the brink.

    For the life of me I have no idea why people continue to vote Democrat. Their dishonesty, criminality, and incompetence is on full display every single day.

    RIP Robert Trump

    The Democrats/Media obsession with the USPS is bizarre. FedEx and UPS are multi billion dollar companies because the USPS is so ineffective and yet Democrats want to change the way everyone votes less than 90 days before an election using the USPS. That doesn’t even pass the smell test.

    On the No Such Thing As Voter Fraud Via Mail In Ballots claim:

    In Michigan, “… state election authorities rejected 846 ballots from people who were dead and another 1,100 ballots from people who had moved.”

    We are assured that this does not NECESSARILY mean anyone tried to commit fraud. After all,
    Those individuals listed as dead or moved include voters who died or moved out of the jurisdiction after submitting their absentee ballot…

    The key word here is “include”. I wonder if there is a real journalist somewhere in Michigan willing to look into this and find out just how many of these ballots were cast by people who THEN died or moved away. This also points out the danger, or at least disadvantage, of extremely early voting.

    There is also an interesting article on ballot harvesting.

      When my wife and I were kids school always started in the fall on the Wednesday after Labor Day. It’s been moved up about 3 days every decade since till this year one of the area school districts was scheduled to start this year on August 5th. They’re doing the same thing with voting. Before you know it we’ll just vote whenever we feel like it.

    The Democrats are unifying this country, no question about that. Their words are welcoming, their policies really do help the “average Americans” (just ask small business owners), and their advocates are truly genuine people of tolerance. Here’s Elie Mystal on MSNBC:

    ELIE MYSTAL: The only reason that we’re here is that we’re struggling to capture the ninth black man because two out of three trifling white men are going to vote for the bigoted, misogynist President, right? Our bench has to play like stars because a majority of white men are going to play like scrubs, all right? ……….. He also charged that “the average African American experience” is to be “predated upon” by whites as he portrayed “every white woman” as a potential predator who could ruin (even end) a black man’s life by calling the police without justification.

    Got that white women? You are an existential threat to black men. I wonder if Elie realizes that in his zeal to label all white people as evil, he reduces all black men to subservient, ineffectual beings incapable of rising above the tentacles of whiteness. But if that’s who they want to be ….

      So how does this comply with so many black men dating and marrying white women? Are they mindless fools lured into losing their souls by the eeeeevil machinations of those eeeeeevil white women?

      These poor people are just losing it, absolutely losing it—and more to the point, losing it loudly and publicly and happy to flaunt their insanity to the world.

      • Retired Spook August 17, 2020 / 1:24 pm

        It’s said that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. That someone would then “flaunt their insanity” is akin to……….well, I can’t think of an apt analogy, but it definitely should preclude someone from participating in governance at any level.

      • Amazona August 17, 2020 / 5:12 pm

        So let’s be logical.

        1. Many black people loathe all white people, with their entire beings. They hate us, they distrust us and they hate having to share the planet with us.
        2. Many black people think white people owe them reparations for things that happened to their fairly distant ancestors, in spite of the fact that their ancestors’ situation is responsible for them being born in the least racist nation on earth, with the most opportunities for all.
        3. A huge chunk of America’s entitlement funding goes to these same angry, resentful and America-hating black people.

        Wouldn’t it make sense to take the money we would be giving these hate-obsessed America-hating black people anyway and buy them a country where they wouldn’t have to live under the boot heel of white privilege, blah blah blah? Where they would not constantly be held down by the Man, where their natural talents and abilities could flourish unimpeded and they could develop the natural resources present in so many African countries and show us how a nation of good honest non-white people can excel?

        Because as much as they hate us, I am getting pretty tired of them, too. So give them a chance to put up or shut up.

    LET THEM ROT. Indeed. Let them swim and fester in the sewer they themselves created. Only then might they realize how destructive their political agenda is:

    A Trump supporter who ended up tweeting people to ‘Leave democrat cities. Let them rot.’ ended up being retweeted by President Donald Trump. The tweet was accompanied by video footage of a group of people driving in their car in New York City and being stopped by protesters in the street. The tacit approval of the president appeared to anger many in certain media. The tweet comes as pictures of homeless people lining streets of Los Angeles and New York City have become ever more commonplace in recent months.

    • Retired Spook August 17, 2020 / 8:51 am

      I can’t think of any better way to get rid of Leftists than to let them self-destruct. Just the savings in ammo alone will be significant. There’s even an old phrase to describe it: “When your adversary is engaged in self-immolation, the best strategy is to hide the fire extinguishers and get the hell out of the way.”
