The ‘purging’ of the South

new-orleans

One of the more despicable things that happened during 2016 was the movement to ‘purge’ America of the Confederacy.  There were those who were so righteous in their stance against the ‘evils’ of slavery and the idea that Confederacy equated slavery.  We can thank the liberal left, media and countless spineless brainless politicians for this lie being spread throughout many of the unthinking youth.  This misconception proves nothing if but our present generation has not be taught to think but merely to regurgitate that which their ‘educators’, or more properly their indoctrinators, have placed before them.  It appears we need a small lesson in history.

First I want to ask what is the difference between the liberal left, NAAACP and many of the Democrat party who promote this purge and the Nazi party of Germany?  The problem is that there is no difference.  The Nazi party burned books by the hundreds to eradicate anything and everything that was deemed unacceptable and opposed Nazi ideology.  This book burning to protect the minds and hearts of sensitive Nazis included works of Hemmingway and Helen Keller because she supported the rights of the disabled.  The liberal left wants any and all reference to the Confederacy removed from history because they find it offensive.  What I find so ironic is the number of Democrats who are part of this movement.  They find ‘racism’ under every rock except for in their own party.  The Democrat party was solidified in the middle 1800’s as a party to oppose the Republicans and their effort in abolitionism.  So according to their own rational the NAACP, liberal left, media and Democrat party must remove any and all references to any and all Democrat presidents or political figures, especially those prior to 1910 when I keep getting informed that the Democrat party change its ideology making it more in favor of the newly freed black person.  Unfortunately people such as Lyndon B. Johnson did not get that memo in that he was wildly racist.

Confederate statues and memorials are a part of American history.  Anyone who thinks that the Civil War was all about slavery has drank from the pool of liberal cool-aid and has yet to resurface.  There were free black Confederates fighting alongside white Confederates against what was seen as Northern invaders who were trying to take away State’s rights.  The North was not as noble in their cause as the left wants to present.  The North had to create an emotional issue in order to get the people behind a war action therefore created Uncle Tom and the horrors of slavery.  Now I am not here to say that there were not some things that were wrong but I am here to say that the North had no room in which to talk.  People of all ages who were put to work in the North in manufacturing businesses had as many risk if not more than the slaves of the South.  At least a slave had a value.  A child in the mills of the North had no value except for what he could produce.  If he or she got killed the owner simply went out and got another worker.  Irish slaves had no value.  Chinese were thought to be so worthless that they were not even included in census counts.  But those of the North who fears that the South would cut off the sea ports and the flow of raw materials knew that the people would not support war based solely on economics.  Therefore the ‘great evils of slavery’ became the scapegoat.  Do keep in mind that ‘slavery’ had been a part of all history and American history in both the North and the South for over 100 years prior to the Civil War when it suddenly because the great evil.  I find it interesting that the same people who are so self righteous against slavery say nothing about groups such as ISIS and areas of Islam around the world which practice slavery to this day.

Being a retired shrink I find people’s actions verses their words quite interesting.  The left and NAACP scream about slavery yet promote the Democrat cause.  Many of the radicals within the black movement are part of the Nation of Islam yet say nothing about the Islamic practice of slavery.  Those of the Democrat party who are so self righteous against slavery also sing the praises of the party totally overlooking how the party voted against the freed black person to have the right to vote or to become a citizen.  According to the actions of those who are so against anything to do with the Confederacy their issue is not with the South, Confederacy or even slavery.  Their issue is with demanding their own way and to impose their will upon others.  In the actions of the liberal left, many of the Democrat party and NAACP there is no difference between their actions and those of the Third Reich.  They want to control the hearts and minds of the youth and find the easiest way is to demonize anything which stand in opposition to a very narrow mindset.  The Third Reich did not want people to think independently and executed those who dared to speak out.  Today we have the ‘educators’ of the left who appear wise but are nothing but fools trying to infest the minds of the young with an ideology that is not based in fact nor history.

ENOUGH!

national-anthem-protest

 

My daddy had an expression of ‘enough is enough and too much is right down nasty.’  That is how I feel about this national anthem protest.  Please permit me to be blunt.  It is beyond time that this silly assed protest stopped!  What are they actually protesting?  They keep saying that they are protesting the mistreatment of blacks in America.  Personally I question that whole idea.  Allow me to explain.

They keep going back to slavery which I find interesting since most of those who are protesting I doubt actually have roots in this country going back that far.  But with that aside, the blacks who were slaves at least were given a value.  The Chinese, Irish and Native Americans had no value.  The Chinese were not even included in the census process in many places because they were non-humans.  The Irish experienced a level of slavery that was beyond what was ever experienced by the blacks.  And I cannot ever recall any other race being given small pox infected blankets by the government with the pure intent of extermination of a race.  I do not recall any time when the government would stampede through a plantation shooting everything that did not get out of the way or move too fast.  There was never a war fought on behalf of the Irish, Chinese or American Indian.  So with these points just as a point of beginning I am going to fully disregard the argument going back to slavery.  One point of irony is how many of the modern black activists are Democrat considering that party was formed with the sole purpose of opposing the abolitionists.  The party loves to say how they changed their position on things around 1910 or 1920 time frame.  But even at the most kind and conservative opinions, taking about 50 years to figure out that racism is not a good thing does not bode well for the Democrat party as being made up of the brightest bulbs in the chandelier.

The next argument is that the blacks are targeted by the police more than any other race.  According to the FBI statistics of arrests 2013, 68.9% of all arrests were white with 28.3% being black.  Additionally, the numbers of blacks killed by whites accounts for 2% of the total number while the number of blacks killed by blacks are 97%.  The protesters like to say how the police are also targeting the blacks but fail to mention how the number of blacks killed by police is only 1% of the total deaths.  Yes there is a black problem in America.  It is a problem of blacks on blacks and not a national problem of blacks attacked by police or other groups!

These voices are trying to say how difficult the blacks have it in America because of racism.  Again let us have some facts.  The black activist in America seems to want to have their cake and to eat it too.  They are doing just that because Americans are afraid to call racism upon blacks.  There is the black caucus in the absence of any other racial caucus in Congress.  There are special black colleges, black magazines, black entertainment, black Miss America (which seems odd considering the animosity), black college funding and now black segregated dorms at the demands of black students.  Yet just think what would happen if there was a white segregated items of the same list.  There is a black problem in America but it is a black on black problem and not something for which America deserves the blame.

As these people are attacking the national anthem they are attacking something much larger than simply America.  They are placing themselves in a position of judge and jury in the face of all that America has ever done positive.  I would pose the idea that the blacks have not been treated any worse than any other group in America.  In many ways they have had a softer life but have not chosen to take advantage thereof.  I am really tired of hearing excuses.  I am really tired of blaming everyone else for their problems and not taking their own responsibilities.  If these black lives matter groups really cared about changing the course of lifestyle for the blacks in America they would have focused their energies in Chicago where young black people are being slaughtered by other blacks on a daily basis.  Statistically it is more dangerous for a young black person in Chicago at the hands of another black person than it was for our soldiers in the Iraqi war.

These people who are protesting the national anthem are usually also being paid by America and Americans.  If America is so bad then stop accepting what they obviously must be seeing as ‘blood money’.  These people are not activist.  They are nothing more than people wanting the lime light at the expense of everyone who died in a battlefield or every cop who died in the streets simply trying to do their jobs.  I personally dare every one of these protesters to get behind the badge for one month if they want to whine about the jobs being done by the police.  Standing for the anthem is more than a song.  It is standing for everyone who died since the American Revolution to give freedom regardless of race.  These people need to so simply research.  They would find that blacks were in Congress prior to the Civil War.  They would find wealthy black businessmen, many of whom were slave owners.  They would find key figures in American history who were black.  If these protesters want to protest I wish they would at least have the brains and ethics to do basic research first.  Without doing their research these so called protesters have done nothing but proven their ignorance and their hypocrisy.

This is one of those posts that is going to have some liberal who living in the basement of his or her parent’s house writing opposition posts to anything conservative going bat crap crazy.  It is clear and obvious that America has a huge problem with minorities.  Blacks, Hispanics, Muslims, Gay and Lesbian issues; these all are critical explosive points.  But one thing that most people are too afraid to say is that if there are to be resolutions where people live in peace these groups are going to have to start policing themselves better than they have in the past.  I watch young black college students going totally out of their minds because of a ‘wall’ that has pro-Trump writing on it.  I see university students being ‘afraid’ over chalk.  I see mass groups of blacks blocking freeways interrupting the life’s flow of everything from simply wanting to go either to work or home from work to emergency services trying to get someone to a hospital to save their lives.  I see Hispanic groups who are not here wanting a better life making it impossible for those who did simply come to America, legal or otherwise; just to have a fighting chance at a better life.  I see Muslims killing their children in the name of honor killings expecting the world to simply accept that their god approves of running their children over with a car because they looked at a non-Muslim male.  I see some Gay Lesbians who simply want to be left alone to live life and they choose while others are demanding to be allowed in the locker rooms of little girls simply because they ‘feel’ themselves to be a female in a male body.  This is totally ridiculous.  If there is ever to be answers it must come from inside these groups themselves.  If they cannot control their own people who is going to?  If the police get involved then they scream discrimination.  If others step up and speak out they whine about racism.  So if you do not want others to get involved they had better get off the dime and start doing something themselves!

When I owned my own security company I had a Hispanic who was my business partner.  We worked well together and watched out for each other.  In him I saw the meaning of family for a Hispanic person.  Yet as we worked the various clubs and parties I was disgusted at watching the celebration for their 15 year old daughters becoming nothing more than an excuse to get drunk, sell drugs and have gangs come in to start fights.  I was so tired of watching children in strollers being in a building at 1 AM where the music was so loud it hurt MY ears.  If people are going to claim to be family oriented then protect the family.  The ‘black lives matter’ group is another example of contradiction.  They scream how black lives matter yet they are doing nothing to stop black violence.  All they seem to want to do is protest anything that might ‘hurt their feelings’.  It is beyond time for these various groups to grow up!  They need to either put up or shut up.  I would begin by advising them that if black lives really mattered that they get off the freeway.  If black lives mattered then stop making black lives into road pizza.

In France it was determined that only 30% or less of the Muslim community would report violent extremist behavior of other Muslims to the authorities.  This means that 70% of the Muslim communities did not care if innocent people died at the hands of extremist as long as they were able to protect fellow Muslims regardless of their intent.  Is there any wonder why people do not trust Muslims?  Yet when you talk in this manner then you are ‘Islamophobic’ which really is not a word.  If they are not willing to control and change their own people then they have no room to complain when others step in to protect the innocent.  They have no room to complain when communities step up and say that they do not want Muslim populations.  They have created the problem and they need to either deal with the problem or get out of the way while others remove the threat.  This is equally as important for the Gay and Lesbian communities.  Now I do not believe that everyone who is Gay or Lesbian is a child molester.  That would be like saying everyone who wore a black hat was a villain.  But there are some common sense things which must be observed.  If you are a male with male parts, regardless what you might think yourself to be, you do not belong in the locker room of a 6 year old girl.  If you are a male with male parts most men are not going to sit idly by while you follow their wives into the bathroom.  This is just plain and simply common sense.  If these groups are not willing to keep those who very possible do have ulterior motives under control then they also have no basis to get upset when people step up to protect their loved ones.  If someone was protesting because he was not permitted into a child’s locker room or shower of the opposite sex, there probably is reason to deeply question that person’s motive.

What I am saying here is not radical.  It is just simple and practical.  It is reasonable and rational but that is the problem.  Today’s society is not reasonable and has no concept of rationality.  They want to ‘have their cake and eat it too’.  They do not want to control their own groups yet they want to reserve the right to get all upset when someone else steps up and says something.  Growing up if there was a brat child and the parents were standing by watching their little darling tear things up at someone else’s house or in public, it was not uncommon for someone else to step and say something to that child.  As a security office I often would have to tell a parent to take their child outside because they were misbehaving and being destructive.  Maybe that is a big part of the problem.  These groups that scream the loudest of family and community have forgotten that community includes discipline.

 

Why do the blacks complain?

baltimore black riots

The purpose of this article is to ask simple questions dealing with fact and not emotion.  It is possible to do so and not be a racist.  I am so fed up with the term racist that I personally believe Martin Luther King would have been giving his donations to the sewer gods by now.  I believe he would be sick at the misuse of the term.  Everything is not racism.  I listen to the media and basically all I am hearing is excuses for bad behavior.  The riots of Baltimore are because the blacks are oppressed and not heard or understood.  The riots of Ferguson were because the blacks are oppressed and not heard or understood.  Excuse me but I don’t buy it!

I can hear the liberals about now going into shock at such a statement.  But as I look at the data I do not see support for their excuses.  I am tired of their excuse that whites have all the privileges.  White people are not the only race capable of racism.  Living in Chicago during the 60’s and 70’s I remember hearing about the kids being shot on the basketball court by Black Panthers simply because they were white.  I remember my brother being harassed by the black kids simply because he was the new white boy in the junior high school.  I remember the fear in his eyes when I was beginning to roam around with a group of kids at a convention in the heart of Chicago and he told me to get back to the hotel.  He knew more first hand of the kids in his school that had been shot because they were white.  I have worked in environments when I was the only ‘white’ person on the American Indian reservation and I was blamed for everything from Custer to Columbus.  All the while knowing I was more ‘Indian’ than my blonde haired blue eyed antagonist.  Everyone who has ever done anything outside their comfort zone knows harassment and racism.  It is not something especially unique to black people.

I hear how the blacks have so many problems with the educational system not bending or making things so that they are able to fit into the vernacular and traditions of the black youth.   But the school system is attempting to teach that youth the correct way to speak in a world where people are supposed to act professional.  It is such a breath of fresh air when I hear leading people in the professional black community speak out about how a black youth will never get a job as long as he wears his pants around his ankles and tries to talk like an illiterate thug. I hear the excuses for the bad behaviors of some of the black youths as a result of police bias.  Incarceration rates of blacks are at approximately 22% within the prisons while the Hispanic rates are at approximately 9%.   The blacks say that the high incarceration is because they do not have an opportunity for education, jobs, family breakdown and poverty.  The Hispanic communities have a dropout rate 32% higher than the black communities and a higher teen pregnancy rate of 42% versus 39% yet the Hispanics receive approximately 11% less federal funding and have a significantly lower incarceration rate.

It is time to strip away excuses.  It is time to strip away all the other so called reasons for bad behavior.  It is time to take away the ‘poor me’ mentality.  Over the years every race has had abuse.  People do not hear about the abuse against the Japanese or Jews in this country.  This is mainly because both of those social groups have decided they would not allow certain behaviors to identify them.  They chose to succeed.  There comes a point in time when society must look at reality and facts.  There are some black youths who choose to succeed and do so.  They are not defined by a group of peers but choose to be unique and come out from the shadows and be productive.  They do not want to be defined by either a victim mentality nor do they want to be defined by a mentality of dependency.  They see opportunities and they take them.  This is again another reason against the idea that the poor black teen is a victim of his environment and held down by the masses.  There comes a point in reality where people must begin to see that many of these black youths are held down by their own choices.  They are their own worst enemy.  They are the product of their own making.  It is not ‘the man’ or society that has trapped them into a culture that has a downward spiral but themselves.  They have become their own worst enemy.

As long as there are no negative consequences for riots, burning other people’s property, destroying other people’s businesses, or attacking authority figures such as police, this type of behavior will continue.  As long as there are the Al Sharpton’s among us who make excuses for the bad and criminal behavior under the guise of a ‘poor me’ mentality these actions will proliferate.  As long as the media will pick up the mantle of the black youth and make him or her an example of martyrdom there will never be change.  Only as the black youth takes charge of their own behaviors and situations will there ever be change in the black communities.  Only as they choose to make change will there ever be change.  The enemy of the black youth is the black youth.
