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?
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.
By now you have probably heard that Major League Baseball (MLB) moved the All-Star Game out of Atlanta. MLB cowered like a frightened soy boy to a radical lunatic Democrat operative when it decided to join the Woke Supremacy in claiming the reason for its decision was that the new Georgia election integrity law was racist. Of course, the argument that the new law is racist is not real, but the fear of the crazy person pushing them to do it is.
As predicted by anyone who has kept up with Georgia politics, the lying miscreant applying behind-the-scenes pressure was failed Georgia lunatic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, the same woman who still refuses to concede her race against current Governor Brian Kemp.
On Wednesday evening, Fox News confirmed that Abrams was the culprit behind the MLB Commissioner’s decision.
“Major League Baseball (MLB) commissioner Robert Manfred decided to move the All-Star Game on his own after holding extensive discussions with voting rights groups associated with NBA loudmouth Lebron James, Stacey Abrams, and racist loudmouth Al not so Sharpton,” according to sources familiar with the situation.
“Abrams and Sharpton told the commissioner players would boycott the game if not. Sources say that Abrams’ current stance, that she is disappointed about the Georgia boycott, is suspect as she was a key player in the decision,” the report continued. “James has publicly supported the Georgia boycott,” adding to the commissioner’s pressure.
In other words, Abrams lied about being “disappointed” over the boycott when she was instrumental in the threats made to the MLB commissioner.
Threats like that are called extortion, a felony, and I wonder if the Georgia Attorney General will investigate?
“Abrams’ group and Sharpton also urged the commissioner to support other issues, including voter drives and H.R. 1, the For the People Act — sweeping election reform that recently passed the House,” the Fox report continued.
Apparently, Abrams was not the only one who lied here. When the MLB issued its statement, it appears that it lied to baseball fans and the players about the reasons behind its decision.
“Over the last week, we have engaged in thoughtful conversations with Clubs, former and current players, the Players Association, and the Players Alliance, among others, to listen to their views,” the statement read. No mention of LeBron James, Al Sharpton, or Stacey Abrams.
Those “among others” are radical leftist members of various levels within the Woke Supremacy who seem to be the actual force behind the MLB’s decision to move the game out of Atlanta, a decision that cost small businesses and the state of Georgia about $100 million in revenue.
MLB has since moved the game to blue-state Colorado, which has even stricter voting laws than Georgia. They moved the All-Star Game out of Atlanta, a city that is 51 percent black to Denver, a city that is about 91 percent white because they said Georgia’s new voting law is racist. And yet Colorado’s voting laws, at least in the Woke Supremacy’s mind, are worse than Georgia’s.
For example, Georgia has 17 days of in-person early voting, while Colorado only has 15. Colorado also has a photo ID requirement to vote in person. Colorado has the exact same rule that campaign workers may not give anything to voters standing in line that Georgia has.
Knowing all of this, does the MLB’s move make any sense at all?
Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms on Tuesday did her due diligence for the Supremacy and issued an Administrative Order that fights Georgia’s election integrity law, which she is not allowed to do. What is it with Democrats overstepping their authority, and what is it with the media never reporting on it?
Bottoms’ Administrative Order declares that the election integrity measures signed into law by Governor Brian Kemp make changes that “include empowering officials to take over local election boards, limiting the use of ballot drop boxes, and imposing new voter identification requirements and limitations for the use of absentee ballots.”
Well, I’ve got news for the mayor. The Constitution’s Article I, Section 4, gives state legislatures sole authority over election laws. Anything that Bottoms was used to at the local level for federal elections can be changed by the legislature. That’s how it works.
Bottoms also made the same old argument that “voting restrictions will disproportionately impact residents in cities and counties with high-density populations, including the City of Atlanta, and will impose barriers to their ability to vote.” She could have shortened it to the law is racist.
These are the same Democrats who ignore, “…shall not be infringed,” when it comes to the Second Amendment and they don’t give a damn about a disproportionate impact on residents in cities when it comes to protecting themselves with a firearm.
Georgia law prohibits cities from creating a “sanctuary policy,” yet in 2019 Bottoms signed an administrative order blocking the city jail from holding US Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) detainees.
In short, Democrats have selective outrage.
And the data is not on the mayor’s side with her argument about the election integrity law impacting residents in cities and counties – read black voters – because multiple studies show that voter ID laws do not and have not suppressed any voter registrations or voter turnout. Bottoms subscribes to the racist argument that black people are too stupid to learn how to get an ID even though she is black herself and has ID. The mayor also cannot lie about black voters being too poor to get an ID because voter IDs in Georgia are free, paid for by other people’s money if you qualify. I would venture to guess that it’s probably higher than 98 percent of black people who live in Georgia already have ID. Otherwise, they could not function in society today. And it’s incredibly insulting to claim otherwise, even for political reasons.
President Joe Biden, Stacey Abrams, and other members of the Democrat Woke Supremacy have referred to the Georgia election integrity law as “Jim Crow” infuriating Georgia Governor Brian Kemp, causing him to go public and fight back at such an egregious accusation.
“There is nothing ‘Jim Crow’ about requiring a photo or state-issued ID to vote by absentee ballot – every Georgia voter must already do so when voting in-person,” Kemp said in a statement to The Hill.
“President Biden, the left, and the national media are determined to destroy the sanctity and security of the ballot box,” Kemp said, adding, “It is obvious that neither President Biden nor his handlers have actually read” the Georgia law. Did anyone really expect them to read it?
Nationwide, the number of homeschoolers doubled in 2020. Between April 25 and May 5, 2020, the Census reported 5.4% of all U.S. households with school-age children were homeschooling. That leapt to 11.1% of households by fall. In North Carolina, the increase was from 5% to 9.4%,” The Carolina Journal reported.
Differences by Race and Hispanic Origin
Homeschooling rates are increasing across race groups and ethnicities.
In households where respondents identified as Black or African American , the proportion homeschooling increased by five times, from 3.3% (April 23-May 5) to 16.1% in the fall (Sept. 30-Oct. 12). The size of the increases for the other Race/Hispanic origin groups were not statistically different from one another.
“It’s clear that in an unprecedented environment, families are seeking solutions that will reliably meet their health and safety needs, their child care needs and the learning and socio-emotional needs of their children,” wrote Census researchers Casey Eggleston and Jason Fields.
So, how significantly have homeschooling rates increased during the pandemic?
The U.S. Census Bureau’s experimental Household Pulse Survey, the first data source to offer both a national and state-level look at the impact of COVID-19 on homeschooling rates, shows a substantial increase from last spring — when the pandemic took hold — to the start of the 2020-2021 school year.
Using a large, nationally representative sample of U.S. households, the survey shows homeschooling is notably higher than the national benchmarks and offers a glimpse of changes in homeschooling patterns during the pandemic.
We compare survey results from the spring of the 2019-20 school year to results in the fall of the 2020-21 school year to measure the pandemic’s impact on homeschooling.
Meeting Education, Health Needs
In the first week (April 23-May 5) of Phase 1 of the Household Pulse Survey, about 5.4% of U.S. households with school-aged children reported homeschooling .
By fall, 11.1% of households with school-age children reported homeschooling (Sept. 30-Oct. 12). A clarification was added to the school enrollment question to make sure households were reporting true homeschooling rather than virtual learning through a public or private school.
That change represents an increase of 5.6 percentage points and a doubling of U.S. households that were homeschooling at the start of the 2020-2021 school year compared to the prior year.
It’s clear that in an unprecedented environment, families are seeking solutions that will reliably meet their health and safety needs, their childcare needs and the learning and socio-emotional needs of their children.
From the much-discussed “pandemic pods,” (small groups of students gathering outside a formal school setting for in-person instruction) to a reported influx of parent inquiries about stand-alone virtual schools, private schools and homeschooling organizations, American parents are increasingly open to options beyond the neighborhood school.
This is just unbelievable. A prominent Black Lives Matter activist, Maya Echols, literally threatened that cities will be “on fire” if former officer Derek Chauvin who is on trial for killing George Floyd as a Minneapolis police officer is not convicted.
Forget any evidence, forget the fact that Floyd had triple the lethal dose of fentanyl and his blood plus meth plus he had COVID, and forget the fact that the knee on the neck didn’t block his airway at all in fact it is in the training video for police officers. She doesn’t give a damn. She wants riots to happen if he doesn’t get convicted.
The autopsy found a mixture of methamphetamine and fentanyl in Floyd’s bloodstream. On top of that, he had heart problems, and he was suffering from COVID.
So how bad is fentanyl?
Dr. Paul Christo of Johns Hopkins University says he uses fentanyl as a really powerful anesthetic during surgeries and sometimes to manage a patient’s chronic pain. However, he underscores the point that it must be used very carefully.
“It’s about 80 to 100 times more potent than morphine,” Christo said. “So, a little bit of that can lead to an inability to breathe and then death.”
Chauvin is now on trial for being an idiot during the arrest by having his knee on Floyd’s neck for over 8 minutes. That’s not what killed him according to the autopsy report, and Chauvin was using an approved technique to subdue a suspect who is resisting arrest, something Floyd did from the moment the police approached him. Why I say Chauvin acted like an idiot is because of bad optics. He knew he was being filmed by bystanders. He knew people were yelling to him to get his knee off Floyd’s neck and that they too were being filmed. I don’t think there was a reason to keep his knee on the neck for that long, but then again, I wasn’t there and neither was Maya Echols who just threatened the civil society with more riots if the Woke Supremacy doesn’t get what they want. No matter how much of the video we can see, and there were a lot of videos convincing me that George Floyd was acting irrationally and the police went out of their way to calm him down and not get violent with him as he resisted getting into a police vehicle.
“If George Floyd’s murderer is not sentenced, just know that all hell is gonna break loose. Don’t be surprised when buildings are on fire. Just saying,” Echols threatened in a video. The video has since been deleted, but we have it here.
“Justice” apparently now means people riot in the street if they don’t get the conviction that they want…😳 pic.twitter.com/yeZ62Y6fWN
Don’t be surprised when buildings are on fire? I don’t think anyone with a triple-digit IQ would be surprised by that. Black Lives Matter wants to do a repeat of the riots over the summer. I bet she is hoping that Chauvin gets off just so that BLM and others can riot again. It’s what Marxists do.
Her threats are dangerous and authorities really need to take her words seriously because we all remember what happened throughout the summer of last year when BLM and ANTIFA acted like domestic terrorists toppling statues, burning down buildings, beating on people, setting churches and police precincts on fire, killing about 25 innocent Americans, attacking police and all kinds of other crimes.
We also remember that the Democrats in those cities did absolutely nothing to quell the riots throughout the summer. In fact, some of them encouraged them by ignoring the rioters and only beefing up the protesters. I remember when leaders in some of those cities acted as if then-President Donald Trump was the enemy after he offered to bring federal agents in to end the riots in their cities. Remember when Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler (D) refused to let Trump send federal agents in to quell the riots, saying that troops would just escalate the situation? What a dope.
Remember when our current vice president Kamala Harris went on TV and said that she encouraged the rioters and that they weren’t going to stop and that they shouldn’t stop? Of course, Harris will say now that she was talking about protesters, but she was really talking about rioters. How do we know? She also supported an organization that took donations to bail out rioters so that they could get back on the streets as soon as possible to create more mayhem.
Make no mistake about it, this video was made to send a threatening message to the jurors that they better vote to convict or else. Isn’t jury tampering a crime? Hello, FBI? If you were one of the jurors, would you vote to acquit? I don’t think any of them will out of fear of thugs like her and Black Lives Matter radicals.
My take on all of this? You reap what you sow. It is no coincidence that excessive force, racism, hate, and anger happens in Democrat-run cities.
In every major city run by Democrats, we see the same thing: Chicago, Philadelphia, Camden, Minneapolis, Newark, Baltimore, Ferguson, Cleveland, Compton, St. Louis, you name it, they all have the same exact problems: high unemployment, high drug and alcohol abuse, high government dependency, high property crime rates, large high school drop-out rates, high gun violence, and it’s all because of progressive Democrats who have run these cities for decades, some a hundred years. Progressive Democrat policies breed environments of poverty and crime. They are anti-business, anti-capitalist, and anti-people.
It’s high time that we call it what it is. Democrat cities are a lost cause, they are unsalvageable in their current state. Democrats have run these cities into the ground so badly they are insufferable to live in. Democrat politicians are so evil that they have convinced whole communities for generations that “racism” is the reason why they live in such poverty with no chance of things getting better. Well, I got news for you. There are too many black people and people of color who do not live in Democrat-run cities who are doing very well for themselves, they are successful because they have not been taught and raised to believe that racism is a reason they will never amount to anything in life.
When politicians throw police under the bus for doing a very difficult job just to placate angry voters, it breeds resentment, anger, and paranoia against cops, and it is the cops who have to bear the brunt of what the filthy politicians started.
It is about time that people who live in these cities woke the hell up and started to realize that their lives do not have to be this way. They need to learn that they don’t have to feel oppressed because they have the power to make it all stop, and when they use their power, they can turn it all around very quickly. If the people who live in these armpit cities could learn one lesson, it would be this; you can’t keep calling it oppression when you keep voting for it, and you keep voting for it. Stop it!
On Fox News’s “The Ingraham Angle” on Friday night, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) blasted the Coca-Cola company for caving and jumping on the #MeTooAfraid movement after the Georgia legislature passed a bill to ensure election integrity in the wake of the 2020 Presidential election theft that every fact-checker reading this knows is true.
The senator from Kentucky pointed out that there are self-evident differences in what the Democrats are saying about the legislation and what is actually written in the legislation. In short, they’re lying, and that includes the president of the United States, Joe Biden.
“There is a distinction between in-person and by mail,” Paul said.
“All of these proposals are to trying to make it easy to vote but hard to cheat,” Paul said to host Laura Ingraham. “I’ve been involved with this. I’ve communicated with people in all 50 state legislatures, I’ve called them on the phone. I’ve talked to the conservative ALEC [American Legislative Exchange Council] group about this, and we’ve now passed it in Kentucky and we actually had more early voting days added, so it’s easier to vote, but you vote in person.
“There is nothing Jim Crow about this. In fact, what is very insulting and really just gets to me is they are implying that people of certain races are not able to comply with rules, show up, or have a driver’s license or figure this out.”
Paul added that people who implicitly believe that certain groups of voters (black people) would be disenfranchised by stipulations like obtaining a photo ID are “very racist in their thinking.” In fact, it never made sense to people with three-digit IQs when the Democrats first came out with the idea that voter ID was racist. Black people use ID every day to do common things in this country. Democrats are evil but they’re not that bright, and I think they were incapable of coming up with another argument to make, so they used their #1 weapon: play the race card.
“They think there are certain groups of our people who are incapable of following basic rules,” Rand continued. “I don’t think it’s true. I think the trend lines for all the different races voting have been good in our country for 20 or 30 years and all these election bills do is try to make it easier to vote but harder to cheat.”
Voter ID also secures the integrity of the vote for black people and people of color, just like everyone else. It’s across-the-board protection and isn’t that exactly what we want? Those nasty evil Republicans can’t steal their vote if there’s voter ID. That’s the argument that makes it so ridiculous on the face of it when Democrats call voter ID racist. It’s because voter ID really tamps down their ability to cheat in elections and Democrats absolutely 100% want to cheat.
Senator Paul likened what’s going on here to the extortion racket saying, “Jesse Jackson would do it years ago.” He continued, “He would protest in front of a big corporation that wasn’t doing anything wrong until they gave money to his organization, and then the protest would leave the organization.
“That’s what they are doing, they think they can bully.”
That’s what Cancel Culture is. It’s a bunch of losers who get a thrill out of being able to destroy someone’s life. They don’t care if there’s a reason to do it or if the reason they are using is legitimate or not. They feel power stomping on an innocent person and it makes them look like they truly are a legitimate member of the Woke Supremacy.
“Now Coca-Cola are telling people to apologize for being White, apologize for being arrogant, apologize for all of these things supposedly that white people are doing, and that’s a very racist sort of philosophy,” he said. “It’s this Woke sort of Critical Race Theory, but it’s now infected a publicly-traded company, and when they start saying things like that, they are actually going against what their mandate is. Their mandate is to maximize profit, but now they are turning off 40% of the country who don’t really want to be woke up and told that we’re horrible people.”
Critical Race Theory teaches that a certain group of people are inherently (read genetically) racist; they were born that way. Folks, that is the very definition of racism.
President Joe Biden and the rest of the Democratic Party circus minced no words about their anger over Georgia’s new voting law that Republican Governor Brian Kempsigned into law last week.
Biden just got slammed for lying about the Georgia law by none other than the Washington Post that gave him Four Pinocchios, which means a bald-faced-lie. Biden said there were things in the law that aren’t in the law. You can’t lie more blatantly than that.
Now they’re going to attack Major League Baseball.
Folks, there is nothing in the bill that should have sparked a mental breakdown for Democrats, that is, honest Democrats. The ones who are screaming bloody murder are upset that the new law shuts down a lot of their cheating during elections.
Regardless, Democrat activists are pushing the league to move the All-Star game out of Atlanta, and now they have President Joe Biden’s support.
The Midsummer Classic on July 13 is scheduled to be hosted by the Atlanta Braves at Truist Park, but haters of the new voting law want the MLB Players Association and the leaders of the organization to move the game.
It’s interesting that no one is talking about anything in the bill that is a real problem for black voters, yet they’re all saying that all the changes in the bill are a problem for minority voters. I had it out with a knucklehead leftist on Twitter this afternoon who kept telling me that changing the voting box deadline to 5 PM was going to harm black voters. I had to point out to him that the law adds an extra early voting day for primaries and general elections, and that people can vote all day long on Election Day, Georgia has early voting, and they can vote by absentee ballot. There is no reason under the sun to lose your mind over that part of the bill.
The liberal then repeated talking points by his leftist masters, saying that the state will now have more control in the election over County workers. I had to point out to him that the US Constitution says that the state legislature has sole authority over election laws; it says nothing about County workers. Democrats are upset about this because County workers were able to get away with changing rules and election laws, which is illegal, but no one pressed it because who wants to be labeled a racist?
Pretty soon all sports teams are going to be located in California.
MLBPA executive director Tony Clark allegedly said he “would look forward” to discussions about punishing the city over the new voting law. Translation: Holy Crap, why does this kind of nonsense have to happen now?
Sage Steele of ESPN interviewed Biden Wednesday night on the eve of Opening Day and asked him about Clark’s comments and about the insane argument of moving the All-Star game.
I don’t think Joe Biden has ever said no to any direct question about taking a policy stance on something that is bad for America and good for the Woke Supremacy. So naturally, he said he was all for it.
“I think today’s professional athletes are acting incredibly responsibly,” Biden began. “I would strongly support them doing that.” I wonder if Biden even knew what they were talking about?
“People look to them; they’re leaders,” he added, referring to the Woke Supremacy that has dominated professional sports over the last few years, especially at ESPN, which is why their ratings dropped drastically. Of course, they will blame everything else under the sun, but the fact of the matter is that the American people turn to sports to get away from the daily barrage of leftism that is thrown at them through every other facet of life. So when ESPN went Woke, it turned a lot of people off. And apparently, the network doesn’t care, because they’re still invoking politics into sports.
“Look at what happened with the NBA, as well. Look what’s happened across the board. The very people who were victimized the most are the people who are the leaders in these various sports, and it’s just not right.” Did Joe Biden just say that multi-millionaire athletes are victims?
“This is Jim Crow on steroids what they’re doing in Georgia and 40 other states,” he said. “What’s it all about? Imagine passing a law saying you cannot provide water or food for someone standing in line to vote. Can’t do that? Come on. Or you’re going to close the polling place at 5 o’clock when people just get off? This is all about keeping working folks that I grew up with from being able to vote.”
People forget the Jim Crow was a Democrat thing, not a Republican thing. The Republicans have always been for civil rights. They passed an Amendment that gave women the right to vote. They fought for the 15th Amendment, which says that the federal government may not discriminate against anybody from voting based on who they are. Democrats have party machines that control the county level of election workers. For decades they have had irregularities during elections that always seem to wind up in favor of Democrats. Article I, Section 4 of the US Constitution says that state legislatures have the power over state election laws. Therefore, Joe Biden is arguing against the Constitution by coming out against the Georgia legislature because the new law hurts the Democrats’ ability to cheat in elections, but the despicable thing is he’s playing the race card to do it.
The new voting law keeps the current Election Day voting hours of 7 am to 7 pm and will expand voting hours and voting days for early voting, despite what the Left is telling you.
A political commentator for CNN and avowed communist, Van Jones said Monday on CNN’s “Cuomo Prime Time” that if Derek Chauvin, former Minneapolis police officer, isn’t found guilty of killing George Floyd, America will find itself in a “dangerous position as a country.” Let’s be honest. There will be riots regardless of the outcome of the trial and the Democrats who run Minneapolis will let it happen again.
That’s pretty much because of people like Van Jones and Chris Cuomo. They are supposed to be news people, and yet the overwhelming majority of Americans heard the arguments made by the Defense Counsel during yesterday’s opening of the Floyd trial for the first time. That is an indictment of the news industry of America. Instead, they are together sending out threats to the jurors and dog whistles to rioters. CNN is extremely irresponsible in this regard.
The news media, including Fake News like CNN, are supposed to give both sides of a story and let the viewers decide for themselves. But CNN, and most of the mainstream news media today, do not believe there is another side of most stories they report. Instead of being real journalists, the people today who sit at news desks drinking from their coffee mugs with corporate logos emblazoned on them are left-wing activists who only see one side of an issue and it always leans Left.
There are rarely any journalists left who know how to be a journalist, and that is what a dangerous position our country is in today. Our news media has failed us miserably and now, even with evidence that shows it’s not the case, most of America believes that the former Minneapolis cops murdered George Floyd.
Jones said, “Everybody I’m talking to are frustrated, re-triggered, re-traumatized. Seeing that video, seeing the complete contempt for life. You have a generation of African-Americans and their allies, I’m talking this entire young generation that is watching this to see if America, listen, the system is on trial here. The system is on trial. And I can’t tell you, people have tried to push away from this, move on from this. Today brought it all back home for tens of millions of people. And if this is considered legal conduct from a police officer, if you can do this in broad daylight and not go to jail, it will be perceived as open season, telling police officers from coast to coast you can literally get away with murder in broad daylight. So, this was, I think. Today was a brutal day for the people who were able to watch. A lot of people weren’t even able to watch. They said, I just can’t even put myself through it again.”
A couple of weeks ago I wrote about why I think Chauvin will not be found guilty of the charges, possibly one of the lesser. It’s because what he did at the scene of Floyd’s death does not match the actual statutes, and unless the jury is Woke, he should be found not guilty. I know it sucks that he died, but George Floyd killed George Floyd and you would know that if our news media hadn’t died years ago.
He went on, “This is the system on trial for a generation. And, you know, listen, you can ask any of the people who have been marching out here in the middle of a pandemic, this is going to be there will be half a billion people watching when the verdict comes out.”
It sounds to me like Van Jones himself finally heard the defense’s arguments based on the facts, and he’s afraid his team is going to lose. It’s terrible that George Floyd died, as it is when anyone dies. But what happened to Floyd is because of what he did to himself. For example, Fake News outlets never told you that Mr. Floyd had enough Fentanyl in his system that he would have died later in his home. On top of that, you didn’t know that Floyd also had methamphetamine in his system; he had an underlying heart condition, and he had COVID.
I guarantee Fake News didn’t point out to you the glaring inaccuracies given by the prosecutor during his opening statement yesterday. Like when he said Chauvin had his arm around Floyd’s neck when Floyd was resisting arrest inside the police vehicle yet there is no video that I’ve seen of Chauvin doing that. The prosecutor kept making it out as if the coroner’s report said that Floyd died as a direct result of Chauvin’s knee on Floyd’s neck, even though we all know by now that the original coroner’s report said he died of a Fentanyl overdose and was later changed when the Woke politicians got involved. They had a country to destroy and they couldn’t let a good crisis go to waste.
The Fake News never told you that Minneapolis police officers all go through the same training program, and part of that training is how to place your knee on the neck of a suspect you have on the ground that is not cooperating. Officer cadets lie down on the ground while someone places their knee on their neck while other cadets hold down their legs. They do this so that the officers know what it’s like. It does not cut off a person’s airway, and it certainly didn’t kill George Floyd. A real news media would have informed the American people of that information.
Jones added, “You’re putting us in a very dangerous situation when you do that because what you’re now saying is it doesn’t matter if you follow the rules. We are still going to come and get you. Once you have 40 million people in the country who, no matter what we do, we break the law, we get in trouble. We follow the law. We get in trouble. No matter what we do, you are not going to accept us, then what do we have here? You’ve got a potential time bomb on both sides. And I think on the other side, what I’m seeing is we talk a lot about white rage, white anger, the angry white man. There’s some white grief that hasn’t been talked about. This country is changing in ways that a bunch of white folks did not sign up for, didn’t expect, and don’t know what to do with. So, a lot of this rage is unprocessed grief that we need to be able to talk about. No. We are not going to back off. It is true. It may be the fact that your grandkids may not look like your grandparents. This country is changing. But it can be a greater country as a result. We need these white voters who are supporting Republicans doing stuff that they know is wrong need to be called to a higher purpose. The Republican Party, which used to be the party of Lincoln, should not be the party of Steve Bannon and all these terrible ideas. There’s no reason for it. So, you got fear on one side, grief on the other side, and the clock is ticking. I’m going to tell you right now, these bills that are being passed to chop us off at the voting block and juries coming out saying it’s okay to kill us are putting us in a dangerous position as a country and as America.”
The city of Oakland, California is instituting a pilot program for universal basic income (UBI) that will affect six hundred low-income families this summer, but the program is intentionally excluding poor white families from being able to participate. Racist much?
This UBI program is only for “Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC)” who have “low incomes and at least 1 child under 18, regardless of documentation status,” East County Today reported. So illegal aliens are welcome, but white American citizens should get lost.
“The term ‘family’ is defined broadly to recognize that families come in all shapes and sizes,” ECT noted. Except for white families.
“Mayor Schaaf Announces $500 a Month “Guaranteed Income” Pilot for Oakland Resilient Families”:
Oakland will host one of the largest guaranteed income pilot projects in the country to give 600 BIPOC families with low-incomes an unconditional $500 per month for at least 18 months. Oakland Resilient Families is a collaboration between the Oakland-based community organization Family Independence Initiative and the national Mayors for a Guaranteed Income. The project will support 600 Oakland families while building momentum for strategies to eliminate racial disparities in economic stability, mobility, and assets through a guaranteed income. “The poverty we all witness today is not a personal failure, it is a systems failure,” said Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf. “Guaranteed income is one of the most promising tools for systems change, racial equity, and economic mobility we’ve seen in decades. I’m proud to work with such committed local partners to build a new system that can help undo centuries of economic and racial injustice, and point us all toward a more just society.” […] “One of my hopes in testing out a guaranteed income is that other cities would follow suit, and I’m thrilled that Oakland is among the first. I applaud Mayor Schaaf’s leadership and am looking forward to working with her to move from pilot to policy,” said former Stockton Mayor and Founder of Mayors for a Guaranteed Income, Michael Tubbs. “By focusing on BIPOC residents, the Oakland Resilient Families program will provide critical financial support to those hardest hit by systemic inequities, including the pandemic’s disproportionate toll on communities of color.”
“Oakland Resilient Families is 100% funded through philanthropic donations anchored by an investment from Blue Meridian Partners’ Place Matters portfolio,” ECT reports.
Can you imagine the uproar if a program was even considered for poor white families only? We would never hear the end of it, but white people don’t complain when overt racism is thrown in their faces.
This isn’t anything new coming from the Democrat Left. They passed racism in their recent COVID relief bill that discriminates against white people by listing a $5 billion giveaway for non-white farmers.
“White farmers blast $5bn promised to minority farm-owners in Biden’s relief bill as discrimination and ‘racism’ with Sen. Lindsey Graham claiming it is a form of ‘reparations'”:
White farmers have voiced their frustration after President Joe Biden’s $1.9 trillion COVID relief package this week awarded $5billion to minority farmers while not offering them the same aid. The Emergency Relief for Farmers of Color Act was introduced to the relief package by Georgia Senator Raphael Warnock in early February to provide immediate financial relief to black, indigenous, and Hispanic farmers. The bill provides $4billion in direct payments to farmers of color and has allocated $1 billion to address systemic racism at the U.S. Agriculture Department (USAD), providing legal assistance to farmers of color and grants and loans to improve land access for minorities. The $4billion will provide direct payments of up to 120 percent of a ‘socially disadvantaged’ farmer or rancher’s outstanding debt as of January 1, 2021. Yet white farmers believe the add-on to the relief package is discriminatory as South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham blasts the money as ‘reparations’. The American Rescue Plan will provide $10.4 billion in total for farmers of all races and farm-related programs, according to CBS, but most of the money is earmarked for debt foregiveness for minority farmers. Half of the fund is going to them, despite white farmers in the US vastly outnumbering their minority counterparts. According to the USAD, which last issued figures in 2017, there are 3.2million white farmers in America. However, there are only 45,500 black farmers, 112,500 Hispanic or Latino farmers, 58,200 American Indian or Alaska Native farmers and 22,000 Asian farmers. This totals only 238,200 minority farmers who will be in recent of 50 percent of the offered aide. White farmers outnumber them more than 13 times.
It makes you wonder if the Woke Supremacy even remembers the millions of white people who fought since the 1960s to create set-aside programs for non-white business owners, who promoted official government-sanctioned racism by supporting affirmative action programs and who worked for organizations that specifically helped underprivileged non-white children and families? They supported those efforts because they didn’t like the exclusion of black people in our society. Now, the same Democratic Party that caused the need for affirmative action programs in the first place is doing it again, only this time they are attacking white people.
Folks, this is the nature of systemic racism. The Democrats are creating a system of racist policies, but they’ll tell you they are committing racism against white people to end systemic racism by white pFolks, government-sanctioned racism is the nature of systemic racism. The Democrats are creating a system of racist policies, but they’ll tell you they are committing racism against white people to end systemic racism by white people.
