We reported last week after President Joe Biden and progressive leftists of the Woke Supremacy supported by the Fake News industry spread vulgar lies about the new election integrity law in Georgia claiming the bill has voter suppression throughout and that it disproportionately impacts people of color, and that in turn Major League Baseball (MLB) commissioner Ron Manfred cowered to the radical leftists and moved the All-Star Game out of Atlanta.
Atlanta is 51% black, and in the name of racial justice, the MLB’s action will cost the surrounding Atlanta area about $100 million in revenues. The MLB has moved the game to Denver, Colorada, a city that is only 9% black. Colorado has even stricter election laws than Georgia. As dumb a decision as this was, no one should be scratching their heads wondering how this could have happened.
It is not a mystery to anyone with a triple-digit IQ that over the last few years the top officials at MLB, the National Football League (NLF), and the National Basketball Association (NBA), have decided to go Woke and alienate a big chunk of their paying audience by giving in to the cries for social justice and cowering to the leftist Woke Supremacy.
Red Sox President Sam Kennedy last year said, “Silence in the face of injustice is unacceptable,” after the death of George Floyd. Kennedy has made a commitment for Social Justice, Equity & Inclusion under the banner of Black Lives Matter where they have created Employee Resource Groups and Race-based roundtables, a bias audit on HR policies and practices, enhanced education and training for employees, players, and coaching staff related to diversity, equity, and inclusion and more. A lot more. Other teams have done similar things.
For a long time now, the sports network ESPN has seen their ratings plummet after going Woke. In June 2020, the Woke sports network saw the lowest ratings it has ever had in 41 years, their entire existence. It’s hard to fathom that a sports network became more ideologically leftist than CNN and the left-wing conspiracy network MNBC combined, but it did. In some of their programming, they completely abandoned sports coverage. My point is the result of going Woke is they are going broke as viewers who up to that point were willing to watch ESPN during the COVID pandemic since there was limited sports activity everywhere in the world, they have now abandoned the network. Needless to say, the network went into panic mode. I’m talking full-on crisis mode level awfulness.
And now the sports business world may also come to regret their decisions to go Woke because they too are alienating large numbers of fans. People are bombarded with left-wing political crap day in and day out, and it is in every facet of their lives. You can’t go to school, go to work, shop online, or do most of anything else without being hit in the face with left-wing politics these days. Social media is the playground of the Woke Supremacy, where social justice warriors have a rigged system created by the leftist tech tyrants.
People loved sports because none of the leftist gobbledygook was found there. Instead of constantly being told America is evil and unfair and that our society is systemically racist and all the other nonsense of mentally ill racial agitators, sports was the one place left where God-given talent and hard work won the day. It was the last place in America with an even playing field, and that attracts Americans. And now the Left ruined sports too, the impact of which is already being felt.
After the MLB’s decision to move the All-Star Game to Colorado, Atlanta Braves fans are already asking for refunds on season tickets. In 2020, all the major sports leagues saw their TV ratings spiral down. You can’t really blame COVID totally for this because when regular television shows were affected by the pandemic lockdowns and there were more people staying home than ever before, sports viewership should have risen, but instead, it went the other way.
Sports leagues and their networks thought they had the fans locked up as a captive audience and that they could throw at them whatever political garbage they wanted because they were hooked on sports. They had to sit there and take it. Until they no longer did.
I don’t think sports owners and the corporate folks ever grasped the level of anger and disgust that watching spoiled millionaire athletes kneel for our National Anthem yet stand for the Black Anthem while disrespecting the American flag and trashing law enforcement did to their fanbase.
In 2020, during the NFL regular season, viewership dropped 7% from the previous year. That’s the lowest average audience since 2017. MLB’s World Series TV ratings dropped 36% from 2019. The NBA didn’t do much better with the viewership during the NBA finals between the LA Lakers and the Miami Heat, where viewership dropped from 15.12 million the year before down to only 6.4 million. That’s more than half.
These trends show that fans will not tolerate professional sports being ruined by politics, and they will find entertainment elsewhere. That means they take their money elsewhere as well.
Ratings mean revenues and when ratings drop, so do the revenues. The question is are the corporate businesspeople of the professional sports world willing to continue the trend of losing money all to kiss the rear end of the Work Supremacy or will they learn that to stay alive you have to give the consumers what they want?
Dr. Anthony Fauci (da Fouch), director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said that a federal mandate on having to show a coronavirus vaccine passport is unlikely, but added that some local governments and businesses might choose to implement their own standards.
This should frighten the hell out of a lot of you because we have a progressive corporate culture now that is doing things that would absolutely violate Constitutional and civil rights if it was the government doing them. The Democrats are using these Woke corporations to push draconian measures on the American people that they can’t do legally, and they are going to give them special attention in bills that are written in the future, at least until said corporations are no longer needed.
On Monday, the head of the previous and current administration’s coronavirus task force made the statements during an interview on the Politico Dispatch podcast.
“I doubt that the federal government will be the main mover of a vaccine passport concept,” said Fauci.
“The main mover” tells me he knows there will be a push for it but Biden doesn’t want to be the culprit.
“They may be involved in making sure things are done fairly and equitably, but I doubt if the federal government is going to be the leading element of that,” he explained.
And then the little left-wing fascist said that businesses and organizations might require a vaccine passport. I can see where the administration will tell certain industries that they would get either a tax break or other special considerations for forcing customers entering their businesses to provide a coronavirus vaccine passport all in the name of “public health.” Admittedly, this is speculation on my part because we can’t even get truthful information from this administration about the horrendous crisis they created on our southern border. What makes anyone think that they’re going to be honest and transparent about how they’re going to implement a vaccine passport? But make no mistake, the administration will be involved.
“I do believe that there will be individual entities that will do that, there may be theaters that say you don’t get in unless you have proof of vaccination,” da Fouch said. “There may be colleges or other educational institutions that do that,” he added.
“I’m not saying that they should or that they would, but I’m saying you could foresee how an independent entity might say, ‘Well, we can’t be dealing with you unless we know you’re vaccinated,’ but it’s not going to be mandated from the federal government,” Fauci concluded.
There is one thing that I have maintained over the years about corporations that go Woke. One of the goals of the officers of a corporation is to make the stockholders happy. The way that they do that is by increasing business products or services, increasing their customer base, and growing their position in the market all to make sure that the bottom line for the company rises. But when corporate officers engage in Woke Supremacist tactics the way they have been for over a year now, it seems that the Woke Supremacy is more important to them than the mission statement of the corporation. That is dangerous to the corporation because millions of Americans will not do business with many companies that enforce unconstitutional restrictions on them when they are clearly not necessary. It’s called Go Woke Go Broke. The NFL, MLB, Coca-Cola, and Delta are right now experiencing this. And the oddest thing of all is that apparently, the corporations don’t care.
Remember that all of this is over a virus that has a 99 percent survival rate, and now many doctors are coming out and saying that it’s nothing but the flu. This means that the administration will know exactly where you have been and will know the things you purchase in stores. They will have more control over you. Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene called the coronavirus vaccine passport Biden’s “mark of the beast.”
While da Fouch said things like, “I’m not sure the coronavirus vaccine is going to be mandatory from a central government standpoint, like federal government mandates,” back in January when he was asked about international travel and public schools he goes on to subtly warn that the vaccine passport is coming. “But there are going to be individual institutions that I’m sure are going to mandate it.”
Mark my words, the Biden administration is using Fauci to deceive the populace into thinking there won’t be coronavirus vaccine passports with the government involved when there will. This is why it is so important that conservatives and other freedom-loving Americans support an alternative economy where capitalism and common sense reign supreme.
Cancel culture has now attacked America’s pastime, and it has become clear that corporations fear the Woke Supremacy. They haven’t yet learned that there is a whole country out that with far superior numbers than the Supremacy and then you start to anger them by siding with her Wokers, it’s going to harm your bottom line.
“Baseball is already losing tremendous numbers of fans, and now they leave Atlanta with their All-Star Game because they are afraid of the Radical Left Democrats who do not want voter ID, which is desperately needed, to have anything to do with our elections,” Trump said. “Boycott baseball and all the woke companies that are interfering with Free and Fair Elections. Are you listening Coke, Delta, and all!”
Major League Baseball made the decision to move its annual All-Star Game out of Atlanta after President Joe Biden told ESPN on Wednesday that he would “strongly support” the due to his objections with the new election security bill.
“I think today’s professional athletes are acting incredibly responsibly. I would strongly support them doing that. People look to them. They’re leaders,” Biden said. “Look what’s happened with the NBA, as well. Look what’s happened across the board. The very people who are victimized the most are the people who are the leaders in these various sports, and it’s just not right.”
Folks, this is the test of what the future will bring. Do we allow Democrats to continue to cheat during elections or do we stand up to them when they call us racist for wanting secure, free, and fair elections for everyone?
There was nothing racist in the bill. In fact, the new Georgia election security law expands voting hours and times, including on weekends. The only thing that the Democrats are upset about is the voter ID portion of the new law. Democrats for years now have resisted voter ID, giving the excuse that they believe it’s racist. That is another blatant lie. Only people with double-digit IQs could think that voter ID is a racist concept. Democrats want you to believe that black Americans are too stupid to know how to get a photo ID or how to vote online.
Joe Biden recently received Four Pinocchios from the Washington post for a blatant lie he told about the new Georgia law. Biden said that the new law in Georgia is “sick” and that the state is bringing back Jim Crow. The president of the United States said that the new law harms working people because they close the polls at 5 pm just when most folks are getting done work. The WaPo nailed him on that lie because there is nothing at all in the bill that says that. The law says that Election Day voting hours go from 7 am to 7 pm. Biden somehow twisted the expansion of voting times to a restriction.
In fact, the law expands voting hours and days for early voting. Think about how involved Biden’s lie was. He called it Jim Crow. He even said people can’t bring someone a bottle of water while waiting in line. That too is a bald-faced lie. The provision in the election bill allows voters to bring food or beverage in line, and they can even order food if they want. The provision Biden was lying about applies to people handing out campaign advertisements, or gifts, which is already found in similar laws in Minnesota, Montana, and New York, which has a likewise policy that applies to “meat, drink, tobacco, refreshment, or provision.” In other words, the law says that campaign workers cannot bring someone something when standing in line to vote. Anyone else can do whatever they want. In Biden’s home state of Delaware, election laws prohibit gifts and rewards during presidential primary elections. Biden lied because he wanted the Woke to believe that Georgia wanted to be mean to voters by not allowing someone to bring them water when they are standing in line to vote in the hot sun. It was a lie.
The All-Star Game was scheduled to be held at Truist Park, the home field of the Atlanta Braves on July 13. Atlanta has hosted the All-Star game only twice, once in 1972 and again in 2000. The game was expected to generate considerable revenue for the state’s economy. The MLB claims it moved the location of the game due to voting “restrictions” contained in SB 202. They were wrong about the bill, and I hope it hurts them in the pocketbook because there is no other way to stop Cancel Culture among corporations than to stand up to them and tell them that wed will no longer support corporations that cower to the Woke Supremacy.
“I have decided that the best way to demonstrate our values as a sport is by relocating this year’s All-Star Game and MLB draft,” MLB commissioner Rob Manfred said in a statement. “Major League Baseball fundamentally supports voting rights for all Americans and opposes restrictions to the ballot box.” Even though there are no restrictions to voting in the new bill.
JUST IN: @MLB announces it’ll move the All-Star Game and Draft out of Atlanta due to the state passing a new elections law last week. pic.twitter.com/rBVUQ6FMJG
Kemp criticized the MLB for its decision to cower to the Woke Supremacy, citing “cancel culture.” He told The Hill, “Today, Major League Baseball caved to fear, political opportunism, and liberal lies,” said Kemp. “Georgians — and all Americans — should fully understand what the MLB’s knee-jerk decision means: cancel culture and woke political activists are coming for every aspect of your life, sports included. If the left doesn’t agree with you, facts and truth do not matter.”
Republican Speaker of the Georgia House David Ralston said Georgia will not “be bullied by socialists and their sympathizers.” He added, “This decision is not only economically harmful, it also robs Georgians of a special celebration of our national pastime free of politics. But Georgia will not be bullied by socialists and their sympathizers,” Ralston said. “We will continue to stand for accessible, secure elections that are free and fair. And we will continue to speak truth despite extortion and intimidation.”
Republican Senator Tim Scott of South Carolina responded to a jab this week from a far-left Community Organizer on MSNBC that went viral, and as a Pro-Trump leader of “Economic Nationalism,” Scott said he used to the extra attacks for being Black, from the radical left activists, like Joy Reid of MSNBC.
“Woke supremacy is as bad as white supremacy. We need to take that seriously,” Scott said. “Unfortunately, I have become accustomed to hearing casual racism and insults from the ‘tolerant’ left.”
Scott is a well-respected Republican Senator who views him as more than his pigmentation.
“Liberals can’t grasp the fact that millions of minorities in this country refuse to be told how to think because of their race. So, they insult them. @SenatorTimScott is a fantastic senator and role model. Joy Reid should apologize,” Nikki Haley, an Indian-American who has reached the heights of politics, wrote in support of Scott.
Her response must lead others to question whether more Black Americans would run for office as Republicans if they didn’t face hysterical mobs who easily get into the media.
BizPacReview reported on a recent appearance by Scott:
“Trey Gowdy hosted Scott on “Fox News Primetime,” referring to Reid’s recent comments about Scott when she essentially called Scott a token for being the only black Republican senator, suggesting the color of his skin was his key qualification.”
“Tim Scott is a United States senator who worked his tail off to be part of nearly every significant policy conversation this country has,” Gowdy said. “He can stand wherever the hell he wants to stand and any group he wants to stand with because he has earned the right to be there. The fact that you see a black man as a prop, Joy Reid, says a lot more about you than it does about Tim Scott.”
In fact, the news broke at the same time that President Donald J. Trump endorsed Scott.
“Former President Trump has endorsed Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina.
“It is my great honor to give Senator Tim Scott of South Carolina my Complete and Total Endorsement,” the nation’s 45th president said in a statement. “He is both an outstanding Senator and person who works tirelessly for the people of his great state and the USA. Strong on the Military, Law Enforcement, love our Vets, protects our Second Amendment and our Borders. Tim will continue to do an OUTSTANDING job for our country!”
Scott, who is the sole black GOP senator, will be up for reelection in 2022.”
A WHITE LEFTIST MAN HAS SPOKEN – SO NOW SCOTT SHOULD HUSH UP, RIGHT?
A white man, Mehdi Hassan, host of MSNBC and NBC, posted in reaction, “Literally the dumbest thing a Republican senator has said in 2021, and that’s despite all the heavy competition for that title from Tim Scott’s colleagues.”
The White liberal “woke supremacist” mob called Scott names and told him he had to be quiet and remove his comments about his personal experience.
White liberals, like Slate correspondent Will Saletan, rushed in to squelch Scott’s voice and discredit him and also to reject his point of view on the state of racism against Blacks in the United States.
A PROPONENT OF WOKE SUPREMACY GOES EVEN FURTHER
So now Scott is a “mascot” of blackness but isn’t actually Black. And his ideas about racism from his own experience formed because he wasn’t taught to see history differently.
Make sense? That is “wokeism” as laid out in the following string of posts. See if you can follow this logic:
“Nostalgia is the intimate refuge of every man and every woman in a world seemingly gone mad.” – Author: John Larkins
It appears the Chicago Public Library has signed up for membership in the Woke Supremacy. On Monday the library announced that it will temporarily censor six Dr. Seuss books from its shelves while it assesses their future at the public library.
My argument here would be that since it’s a Public Library if one person wants the books there then they have to keep them available. If there are crazy people who see racism everywhere they look for it who don’t want to see the books there then they shouldn’t look for them. This is yet again a government-gone-woke story where the government workers only listen to the crazy woke jobs who won’t stop until all of America stops having a good time. What about the other side? The wokety woke wokes never give a damn about how they feel and they pay taxes to keep the Public Library around as well.
On Monday, a wokesman for the library told the Chicago Tribune that the six children’s classics that were banned for racism, that are in no way no how racist, are currently checked out, and that when they are returned they will no longer be made available because some idiot with a chip on their shoulder wants to show the world how woke they are.
“It is important to recognize that what society understands to be relevant and/or common knowledge changes over time, and so too does the Library and the needs of the communities it serves,” the library wokesman Patrick Malloy told the outlet.
Malloy told the Tribune that staffers compel readers of all ages who visit the wokebrary to “engage critically” with library materials, but those that “become dated or that foster inaccurate, culturally harmful stereotypes” (the latter of that insane statement probably makes up about 99 44/100% of his intentions) are yanked from the shelves to make room for more current and “comprehensive” books (probably like “Tommy Has Two Mommies” or “The GayBC’s”).
The way to end this is for people to stop using that Public Library. If nobody shows up then there is no reason to keep the place open. But the problem we have in 2021 is that there are enough stupid people out there who agree with this lunacy and who will use that library to be able to check out books that are offensive to conservatives.
The six Dr. Seuss books the communists banned are “If I Ran the Zoo,” “And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street,” “McElligot’s Pool,” “On Beyond Zebra!,” “Scrambled Eggs Super!” and “The Cat’s Quizzer.’’
Forget the fact that Dr. Seus in real life was an activist liberal who took racism very seriously. He wrote an entire shelf of anti-racism books, but you can’t the Woke anything. They’re probably of the same ilk as the people who tore down statues of abolitionists over the summer and they were just too ignorant to know the difference.
“CPL is constantly reviewing our collections to ensure that the materials we circulate are responsive to the communities we serve,” Malloy’s statement said. “Staff will continue to evaluate all Library resources and consider bias, prejudice, and racism when making decisions about our programming, services, and recommendations, in addition to our collections.”
The New York Public Wokebrary, meanwhile, has said it will keep the books on its shelves until they’re no longer in “acceptable condition.” Be on the lookout for hordes of Wokers descending upon the wokebrary to make sure the books are no longer in acceptable condition. And I guarantee not a single one of the hoodlums will be prosecuted.
The Brooklyn Public Wokebrary mirrored that sentiment, keeping the books in circulation, while those who work at the Queens Public Library to their credit said last week they’re considering whether to move the titles to its reference section stating that the library stands “firmly against censorship.”
The Denver Public Library took the Queens NY approach saying it also will not succumb to the lunacy of the Left by pulling the six books by Dr. Seuss. Good for them.
Lark Grey Dimond-Cates was not a character in a Dr. Suess book but was his stepdaughter who told the New York Post that “There wasn’t a racist bone in his body,” when speaking of her stepdad. Though she agreed that for now the books should be pulled yet hopes that someday they maybe go back into print.
“I think this is a world that right now is in pain, and we’ve all got to be very gentle and thoughtful and kind with each other,” she said.
The Brits are known for their classic liberal approach to life, being the inventors of “Free Speech” with the literal invention of the citizen’s “soapbox” movement in Speakers Corner, and that still means something to a British commentator, Carl Robinson, who has had enough of the left’s divisive tactics on British society.
“These people on the hard left say they are campaigning for equality and diversity, but the moment someone expresses a different thought or opinion, they’re like, no not that kind of equality, no not that kind of diversity,” Robinson said on Saturday.
Robinson, a Black man, had been sent several racially bombastic tweets by far-left activists, who claim to be calling names to further social justice for minorities.
Mr. Robinson told Sky News, “It is bonkers, and as I say, this happens every day. This is a common occurrence.” “Anti-racists are the ones hurling racial abuse at people for just expressing a normal opinion.”
WHEN BLACK LIVES REALLY, MATTER
Foxholenews.com reported on Robinson’s recent appearance and covered the blowback Robinson has gotten on social media for defending the right to speak freely.
Robinson has his defenders.
“Common sense campaigner Calvin Robinson has spoken out against the vile racial abuse he has received over social media following shocking comments on Sunday from hard-left charity the Race Trust.
Robinson’s appearance on the BBC’s The Big Questions on Sunday prompted a volley of disgraceful tweets. The first, from the charity’s founder Aysha Khanom, scorned: “Please somebody deal with this man.” The second, from the Race Trust’s official account was unbelievably offensive.,” Fox Hole news said.
HARD LEFT JUST THROWS OUT OFFENSIVE TWEET
Aysha Khamon, a religious education lecturer and owner of ‘The Race Trust’ – an organization that claims to mentor children against racism – was widely condemned after calling another member of the BAME community a ‘house n*gro’ through her organization’s Twitter account.
Upon being criticized for her racist slurs by Twitter user @GlenGooner, Khamoon made further racist remarks and stereotypes, referring to his skin color and accusing him of having ‘white fragility.’
Robinson told the Foxhole on Sunday night: “These so-called anti-racists see dissenting voices as a threat. They want to shut us up at all costs so we don’t ruin their race hustle. It’s a shame their revenue models thrive on hate and division when the rest of us are working towards unity.”
When “unity” means tearing each other apart over the level of skin pigmentation, something has got to change.
Why can’t we all just get along? Because of the left. Exactly as Robinson claims. A “woke” woman of Asain descent who is a member of Black Lives Matter is harassing a Black man and telling him he has White Fragility and is a “White” racist because he claims that BLM is hurting the Black community.
The left has jumped the shark. That’s it. There is no other way to describe their actions, which they claim are for social justice.
Last week I covered a story about the French pushing back on creepy American wokeism, and now some Brits are chiming in that they have also had enough.
When the Brits and the French have had enough of the Woke Progressives, they have really gone too far.
On Tuesday, Republican Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon signed a bill into law that now requires state residents to provide identification when they go to cast a ballot in an election.
The bill called HB0075, stipulates that Wyoming voters must show “acceptable identification” when voting in person and that “in-person voters can be challenged for failure to show acceptable identification,” when voting either on Election Day or during early voting.
State Representative Chuck Gray (R) was the primary sponsor of the bill, which nearly two-thirds of the Wyoming legislature co-sponsored.
“Today’s signing of my Voter ID legislation is a victory for the citizens of Wyoming,” Gray said on Tuesday, as reported by the Cowboy State Daily. “It is a necessary function of our Republic to provide our citizens with confidence that our elections are secure, fair, and valid. I am proud that we were able to meet this important milestone for Wyoming.”
Forms of identification that include a valid Wyoming driver’s license, a US passport, a Medicaid or Medicare insurance card, will all be acceptable under the new law.
“You really have every available type of identification to be used in this case, so no one has to feel like there’s an ID they can’t get,” Wyoming Secretary of State Ed Buchanan said during a Senate committee meeting last week. “One of the important things I emphasized early on this was in no way disenfranchising any voters.”
Some people on social media are already saying that hardly anyone lives in Wyoming, so they must all know each other. Idiotic comments aside, voter ID is about more than that.
In every state, dead people and people who moved out of the state remain on voter rolls. Democrats are famous for finding out voter registration information for those people and use it to vote in their name, either in person or by absentee or mail-in voting. That type of voter fraud made up the bulk of voter fraud cases during the 2020 election, at least according to the testimony of whistleblowers and more importantly data experts who analyzed the 2020 voter data.
Queue screaming Democrats.
Every time someone attempts to purge the dead and non-residents from the voter rolls, a screaming Democrat will pop up shouting “VOTER SUPPRESSION!” Democrats know that the more states that have voter ID, the fewer elections they will win.
Wyoming law prior to now has always required people to show proper identification when they go to register to vote, and not when they go to vote in person. Think of how many dead people and non-residents have voted because of that. Not anymore, at least not until Democrats figure out how to scam the system.
HB0075 goes into effect starting on July 1 and it will not apply to absentee voting, so you can bet the farm that absentee voting is what Democrats will switch to in order to cheat in future elections. Remember, give the Democrats an inch and they’ll steal an election.
After the 2020 election, a lot of states are going to be similarly doing election integrity laws just like what happened in Georgia. Georgia received an enormous amount of backlash and it was patently obvious that the Democrats were lying their tails off about voter suppression and claims that the new election integrity laws Georgia passed recently were akin to Jim Crow. Democrat lies about the new law caused Major League Baseball to pull the All-Star Game out of Atlanta with the MLB claiming they did it because after the new election integrity bill was signed into law it was “the best way to demonstrate our values as a sport.” Even though there is nothing racist or suppressive to black people in the new law, the MLB moved the game from a 51% black city and gave it to the 91% white city, Dever, Colorado. The potential of $100 million in revenues for the surrounding Atlanta area would have gone to black-owned businesses, and black communities in Atlanta are now gone because the MLB caved to the Woke Supremacy’s hysterical lies.
I believe the Left went so nuts over the Georgia law just to send a message to other states about what will happen to them if they follow suit. It didn’t work. Wyoming is now a voter ID state and hopefully, many more states will follow.
Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) has received more hateful commentaries online by the leftist Woke Supremacy after he firmly stated that he will not vote to end the filibuster and his explanation is that the January 6 riot at the US Capitol is what changed his thinking.
On Thursday, during an interview with CNN, Manchin, 73, explained how the Capitol riot changed his mind.
“January 6 changed me. I never thought in my life, I never read in history books to where our form of government had been attacked, at our seat of government, which is Washington, DC, at our Capitol, by our own people,” Manchin said.
“So, something told me, ‘Wait a minute, pause. Hit the pause button.’ Something’s wrong. You can’t have this many people split to where they want to go to war with each other,” he added.
Those people did not want to go to war with each other. They were frustrated to the max. They just wanted what they knew was a rigged election fixed. You cannot expect people to watch a presidential election get stolen the way it was from President Donald Trump, have the Fake News media refer to any calls for investigations into mountains of credible evidence of election fraud as spreading disinformation and misinformation, and then watch the tech tyrants of social media censor any speech about election fraud issues without getting angry. Up to that point, those people had put up with non-stop attacks for over four years. They watched their president be impeached twice over things he did not do. Those people felt that they did everything by the book, they followed every rule, every law, and they were crapped on every time. That frustration comes from being picked on by tyrants too long. It was Joe Manchin’s party that broke rules and laws for four years to get rid of one man who stood in their way of turning America into a utopian heaven on earth that they would rule in a brave new world.
Manchin’s vote has become a drag against the schemes of the most radical Democrats in the Senate. Because the Senate is split 50/50 between Democrats and Republicans, and his fellow Democrats want to push through legislation without any resistance, Manchin is standing in the way of getting the Democrats’ mission of destroying our country going on steroids.
At this point, all they need is one Democrat to cave on any bill and they would lose. Democrats don’t like to lose. They don’t like to meet on common ground either. Bipartisanship to Democrats means the Republicans cave and let them have what they want. Democrats like a rigged system. It’s what they always try to do. To end the filibuster rule which forces both parties to come together to find common ground in order to pass legislation, Democrats would need Manchin’s support.
Democrats who are trying to end the filibuster are openly saying that they do not represent all Americans who live in their states and/or districts, only Democrats.
“I’m not killing the filibuster. I’ve been very, very clear,” he said to CNN. Manchin has been clear about this, so clear that I feared he was lying about it. He said all along he would not support ending the filibuster, so I don’t understand why the party faithful are having a conniption fit.
Some on the left lashed out at Manchin for not supporting the effort to pass liberal legislation without some support from Republicans.
Failed congressional candidate Chunk Yogurt of The Young Turks on social media had a typical libtard reaction:
“Joe Manchin is the most deeply dishonest man in America. He’s now saying the Capitol riot changed him and that’s why he’s blocking all Democratic legislation. What? What an absurd bullshit claim! No, you’re blocking it on behalf of your corporate donors. Ask him about the donors!”
Joe Manchin is the most deeply dishonest man in America. He's now saying the Capitol riot changed him and that's why he's blocking all Democratic legislation. What? What an absurd bullshit claim! No, you're blocking it on behalf of your corporate donors. Ask him about the donors!
The Meathead, Rob Reiner, also chimed in with his anger that the Democrats can’t go Soviet Politburo in the US Senate.
Getting sick and tired of Joe Manchin controlling the Senate. Passing legislation that is supported by the vast majority of the American people should not rely on courting Republican Senators who stand for nothing but obstructionism and White Supremacy.
“Passing legislation that is supported by the vast majority of the American people should not rely on courting Republican Senators who stand for nothing but obstructionism and White Supremacy,” he added.
At least Joe Manchin is sticking to his principles. They are trying to wear him down, and who knows, maybe they will. But for now, the senator from West Virginia seems to be the only rational thinking member of the Senate Democrats.
This story is the height of racism. When people use racism as a weapon when there is no racism to be found, they’re being racist. When people throw out accusations of racism without sufficient evidence, they’re a piece of garbage.
Media political and financial commentator Eric Bolling shut down an interview he was doing on the BBC on Wednesday when another guest who was on with him simultaneously said he was faking his concern for black communities.
Bolling suddenly left an interview by walking off camera with BBC’s “Newsnight” after the other guest, political commentator, and racial agitator Aisha Mills said that his concern for black communities wasn’t real.
The two of them were discussing Georgia’s new voting law as well as Major League Baseball’s (MLB) decision to pull the All-Star Game from Atlanta and moving it to Denver, Colorado, as a punishment to Atlanta over the new law.
Bolling pointed out that the MLB’s decision to pull the game from Atlanta hurt minorities, including minority-owned businesses. Bolling was responding to how the Democrats made the issue racial from the minute Governor Kemp signed the bill into law.
Atlanta is 51% black, therefore many businesses in the Atlanta surrounding area have to be black-owned. The potential for $100 million of revenues from the game was taken away from Atlanta businesses. The point Bolling was trying to make was that the MLB was pressured by Stacey Abrams and others to move the gave upon a threat that they would get MLB players to boycott games if they didn’t. Imagine that every game. Bolling pointed out that the MLB’s decision, which they claimed in a statement was based on the new voting law hurting black voters, actually hurt black people by killing the $100 million in revenues and gave it all to a city that is about 91% white.
Bolling is a financial guy. It’s one of the things he does for a living. He is qualified to talk about this subject.
Mills started out referring to what Bolling said as rubbish.
“Well, first of all let me just go back and address the rubbish that was just said, you know, this attack on liberals and boycotts, as if, um, somehow one holding corporations accountable, uh, is a problem…” Mills said.
Here is the problem with the asinine logic of what she said. First off, it wasn’t Major League Baseball that added voter integrity laws to Georgia law. They are about baseball. The same goes for Delta Wokelines, Woka Cola, and other businesses that cowered in the face of race-baiters like Mills, Stacey Abrams, Al Sharpton, LeBron James, and others. Those corporations didn’t act irresponsibly at all, so there was nothing they had to be held accountable over. That part was all made up by lying leftists like Aisha Mills.
So are we to believe that established corporations are now supposed to just get up and move out of a jurisdiction that the Woke Supremacy deems a problem for whatever is the issue of the month and they just happen to be unfortunate enough to be nearby? That would be a hell of an economic boom for U-Haul. But then again, U-Haul may have to up and haul ass out of Pheonix, Arizona if some Woke Supremacist race hustler wets their pants during a temper tantrum over something that has nothing to do with renting a moving truck.
Aisha Mills and her ilk are dividing our country based on racial sophistry.
During the exchange, Mills said, “I think it’s really rich for any Republican — especially a white man — to run around and claim they care about the economic condition of black communities and black businesses when that’s all a lie.”
“Especially a white man?” How racist is that? Eric said nothing out of line, not even coming close. But this is how it is today. Black race-baiters feel that they can say anything they want regardless of it being racist to make their point. They all have the same self-righteousness about them as if the world owes them something. It’s called Black Woke Privilege and it’s just as dangerous to the civil society as the gibberish rhetoric of white nationalists.
Bolling shot back, “That is not fair! You don’t know me. You don’t know who I am.”
Mills threw a “how dare you” at him while turning herself into a racial victim, claiming Bolling was only showing empathy for black people to create a wedge.
“I am … a black person in America,” Mills said. “Everything that these voting laws stand for … is all about racial discrimination. How dare you try to act like you are somehow a proponent of black people and businesses just to make a point and try to create a wedge? It’s ignorant, and it’s disrespectful.”
Did you catch her bizarre leap in logic? Mills was saying that being a white person, Bolling would not normally show empathy for black people or black-owned businesses and that he only mentioned how a majority-black city got screwed out of $100 million in revenues by MLB’s decision just to stir up racial problems in the country and create a wedge between racial groups.
That’s nuts. Who thinks like that? A sick person, a racist nut job who wears race on their sleeve, that’s who.
At that point, Bolling had enough and shot back, “That’s disgusting. I’m done. Put me off. That’s disgusting. I am nowhere near anything you are painting me to be, and the problem with American politics is exactly that. Because I’m white, you think I’m racist? That’s BS! I’m done.”
As Bolling moved to leave the interview, “Newsnight” host Emily Maitlis asked if he would remain for a question.
Bolling sat back down saying, “I don’t know why I’m staying here.” He followed up saying, “I need an apology.”
Mills fired back, “I’m not going to apologize for being offended.”
Can you believe this crazy woman? SHE was the one who was offended! She fabricated what she claimed to be offended about.
Folks, this is why I am believing more and more every day that this country is divided so badly it will never come together again. I don’t believe the country is divided by race. I believe we are divided by ideology and it is the Left’s decision to be this divided. They are the ones who use cancel culture, racial sophistry, and reverse racism disguised as righteous indignation. When you have people who are capable of making up disgusting things about other people out of whole cloth, knowing they can do it with impunity, and they share absolutely no values with anyone outside of their political ideology, how can you go on as a society? You cannot. Decent people of all walks of life, all races, colors, and creeds do not live this way, they do not think this way. And the decent people among us have absolutely nothing in common with the Woke Supremacy of the leftists.
After adding insult to injury Bolling finalized his intentions saying, “I’m done” and he walked off not to return.
