As best I understand confused US politics right now, the Democrats are busy destroying themselves as they become more and more radical, and pursue madcap schemes like de-funding the police.
How many Americans are likely to support that? Hardly any.
So I expect that Trump will be re-elected with an increased majority in November, and Republicans will tighten their hold on the House and Senate.
What else can possibly happen?
And with copycat protests and riots in Britain and Europe being fomented by the Left, much the same thing will happen there too.
The Left are their own worst enemies.
All of which is pretty much what what Steve Turley has to say:
This monologue by Tucker Carlson is worth a watch. At the end he basically says that we shouldn’t be complacent that the Democrats are destroying themselves because this movement, or whatever it is, is causing a lot of harm. The thought that the left wants to not abolish the police, but replace them with their own squads of idealogical, armed, social workers who will enforce their point of view, is frightening.
Kente cloth is indigenous to Ghana…
‘Kente comes from the word kenten, which means basket in the Asante dialect of Akan. Akans refer to kente as nwentoma, meaning woven cloth. It is an Akan royal and sacred cloth worn only in times of extreme importance and was the cloth of kings.‘
Funnily enough, I remote viewed an interesting documentary about Ghana last night with Cade Fon Apollyon in Texas. It’s a great series of six films charting the rise and fall of scientific belief in the 20th century, and I can highly recommend…
*What’s that, Clicky… /lights up and smokes… Alright, I’ll mention it…*
I do actually own a strip of Kente cloth…
The democrats have rejected Bernie Sanders in favor of Joe Biden. Most of these radicals are Bernie Bros. Marxist, socialists fringe voters. Last election the Bernie Sanders supporters were mad at Hillary Clinton for rigging the Democratic National Convention. Many did not vote for her.
It looks like a repeat this election cycle.
Joe Biden was doing poorly both in the polls and in delegate counts until Super Tuesday, when he conspicuously won a number of states and skyrocketed to the top of the delegate count. I think it is even more obvious that the powers-that-be within the Democrat party rigged this year’s primary (with respect to 2016). I believe the so-called “Bernie Bros.” are going to be even more pissed off this time around.
I’m not sure about Turley.i used to like him, but i find him too CAPSLOCK ON for my taste. Hysterical…..
Here is the epitome of hypocrisy and doublethink in one image. This is a screenshot from a local news station’s coverage of the “Black Lives Matter” protests here in Seattle, Washington today. The supposed message behind these protests is ensuring that a formerly oppressed group of individuals is treated equally and fairly. Speakers hearken back with disdain to an era where black people were forcibly segregated from white people while simultaneously forcing smokers to corral themselves in a small, cordoned-off area next to the portable toilets on the perimeter of the outdoor, open-air protest area:
I can’t help thinking looking at that image at the top of the page, that at last the Democrats are doing penance for the Jim Crow laws.
The Democrats’ Missing History
“As Democrats prepare to nominate Sen. Barack Obama to be the first black president, the Democratic National Committee and its chairman, Howard Dean, have whitewashed the party’s horrific and lengthy record of racism. The omission is in the section of the DNC Web site that describes the party’s history. The missing history raises the obvious question of whether the Democrats, unable or simply unwilling to put their party on record as taking direct responsibility for one of the worst racial crimes of the ages, will be able to run a campaign free of the racial animosities it has regularly brought both to American presidential campaigns and American political and social life in general.
What else to make of the official party history as presented by the DNC on its Web site? It is a history so sanitized of historical reality it makes Stalin look like David McCullough.
The DNC Web site section labeled “Party History,” linked here, is in fact scrubbed clean of the not-so-little dirty secret that fueled Democrats’ political successes for over a century and a half and made American life a hell on earth for black Americans. Literally, the DNC official history, which begins with the creation of the party in 1800, gets to the creation of the DNC itself in 1848 and then–poof!–the next sentence says: “As the 19th Century came to a close, the American electorate changed more and more rapidly.” It quickly heads into a riff on poor immigrants coming to America.
In a stroke, 52 years of Democratic history vanishes. Disappeared faster than the truth in the Clinton administration. Why would this be? Allow me to sketch in a few facts from those missing 52 years. For that matter, lets add in the facts from the party history before and after those 52 years, since they aren’t mentioned by the Democrats’ National Committee either.”
“So what’s missing?
There is no reference to the number of Democratic Party platforms supporting slavery. There were six from 1840 through 1860.
There is no reference to the number of Democratic presidents who owned slaves. There were seven from 1800 through 1861
There is no reference to the number of Democratic Party platforms that either supported segregation outright or were silent on the subject. There were 20, from 1868 through 1948.
There is no reference to “Jim Crow” as in “Jim Crow laws,” nor is there reference to the role Democrats played in creating them.
These were the post-Civil War laws passed enthusiastically by Democrats in that pesky 52-year part of the DNC’s missing years. These laws segregated public schools, public transportation, restaurants, rest rooms and public places in general (everything from water coolers to beaches). The reason Rosa Parks became famous is that she sat in the “whites only” front section of a bus, the “whites only” designation the direct result of Democrats.”
Now subscription only, to read the rest go to –
The first time I ever heard the expression “take a knee” was in A Knights Tale and it jarred then, so I assumed it was an Americanism.
To an English person , I have to say that all this kneeling as if you are about to be knighted, does look very odd.
All of this kneeling is a cringeworthy display of virtue signaling. These people are all imitating Colin Kaepernick, the mixed-race American football player who, in 2016, would “take a knee” during the singing of the national anthem–an event when Americans are expected to stand in honor of the country and all of those who gave their lives to defend it–as a form of protest because he believed black people were treated unfairly and were disproportionately more likely to be victims of police brutality.
Regardless of whether or not you agree with his beliefs, his act of kneeling was indeed a symbolic form of protest. Today, however, people are just kneeling in random places for the sake of being seen kneeling: in the street, in the middle of a protest, in hospitals, in the Capitol’s Emancipation Hall …
And to me, the most ironic thing about this new trend of kneeling anywhere and everywhere is that George Floyd, the man whose death sparked all of this recent “activism,” was killed by a police officer kneeling on his neck. Protestors are also calling on cops to “take a knee,” which I find bizarre, because this whole mess was started because an officer took a knee.
Apols, Frank, but I have a comment stuck in moderation. Can you free it please?
