Colin Kaepernick; Civil Disobedience

la-sp-sn-49ers-colin-kaepernick-20151103-001

Listen up, Idiot America.

You know who you are.
1. Colin Kaepernick is not saying that HE has been oppressed by the Police. He is saying that Police Oppression does exist.
IT DOES EXIST!
2. He has more moral courage than the majority of his detractors. He has laid his reputation and his career on the line. He has put his ability to earn millions on the line.
3. Civil Disobedience in America has a long and proud history in America. First and foremost, we have Martin Luther King Jr and the Civil Rights Movement. The American Revolution started with Civil Disobedience. The Abolitionists exercised disciplined civil disobedience and took down the institution of slavery in the United States.
4. The Police are the State. They are not your friends. They are not your buddies. They aren’t going to give out lollipops and ice cream and hugs.
The are enforcers of the law. They say this. They repeatedly state that they don’t make the law, they only enforce it. They do so thoughtlessly. They will enforce the most benign laws and the most heinous and malicious legislation without thought. Morality means nothing to them.
There are laws now in America which are immoral. There have always been laws in America which are/were immoral. For instance, the Fugitive Slave Law was once the law of the land in America. Police enforced that law. Currently, we have drug prohibition laws which prohibit parents from saving the lives of their children and from healing their children. Police thoughtlessly enforce those immoral laws.
Police are not your friend. They are an instrument of the State. There is no law so insignificant over which the Police will not enact violence against a Citizen of the United States. They will brutalize, maim and kill to enforce laws. They have done so. They will continue to do so.
Police in America are above the law. They have qualified immunity. the Supreme Court has ruled that Police can lie to you. The Supreme Court has ruled that the Police have no obligation to protect or serve the Citizen. Police can break the law in order to enforce the law. They can rob you on the highways of America thanks to Civil Asset Forfeiture laws.
If you are ignorant of these terms and laws, educate yourself. It is not that difficult.

What Colin Kaepernick is doing is as American as Mom and Apple Pie. It is called Civil Disobedience. He has put more on the line in taking this stance than most Americans will place on the line in their entire lifetimes.

Colin Kaepernick has started a National Conversation on Police Brutality. Talk America and stop hating on your fellow Americans. Listen America, to the sounds of the people making their way through this life.

Think America! Before it is too late, learn to think.

P.S. I am a Veteran.

America is Funny

funny-Kenny-South-Park-death.jpg

 

When we are killing tens of thousands of their folks each year, we should probably think before we react when they kill a couple dozen of ours.

We’ve been waxing people in the Middle East for a while now.

We’ve been supporting corrupt, evil tyrants in the Middle East since the end of World War II.

We’ve installed corrupt, evil tyrants in the Middle East.

Yet, we, the Great Americans, get all huffy when they hit back. We’re ignorant peasants who believe patriotism is supporting a corrupt Federal Government that grows more centralized, more corrupt and more tyrannical with each passing election.

We vote for the lesser of two evils because we are too stupid to use our numbers to our advantage because we are more interested in being Republicans or Democrats than in being Americans.

We are easily led sheep wandering aimlessly down a pre-constructed path to our destruction and we love them for it. We fight each other for the right to be first into the meat grinder. We fight each other to show our love, support and blind trust of our respective “leaders” who are outright purchased by Big Banks and Big Corporations.

And we think this makes us exceptional.

America is funny. Deathly funny.

Iraq and the Coming War within Islam

Nothing in Iraq is about American Security. In the ’80s, our Iraq policy was about revenge and sowing division. In the ’90s, it was pure economics but advantaged for the dollar, Europe, India, Japan and China.

Now, I can’t really tell what it is. We false flagged our way into a decade of lunacy in Iraq to no apparent advantage. We’ve definitely sewn division amongst the Middle East.

What we’ve accomplished here is the pitting of Shi’a Iran against Sunni Saudi Arabia. We’ve made a showdown all but inevitable. The problem with this is that there is no guarantee that the current criminals who are our putative allies will actually be the power in Saudi Arabia. We have strengthened the Wahhabist movement in the Nejd at the expense of the Saudi Royals. Not that I am against that. I abhor the Saudi hypocrites.

I suppose now that the thing to do is to withdraw from the Middle East and await the inevitable showdown between the Saudi led Sunnis and the Irani led Shi’a.

Let them fight it out. That’s a good centuries worth of fighting there.

That will take Israel out of focus until Egypt gets dragged into the conflict. The seeds for this have already been laid.

even with Egypt, there is no guarantee that Israel would become a focal point. Instead Egypt could be led to focus upon Iran.

If the Saudis were smart, they’d ally themselves with Israel against Iran. There is precedent for alliances with infidel powers. Saladin did it. Several Muslim princes did so during the “Crusader era.”

It will all depend on who comes to power over the next several decades.

 

The Racism of the Gun Control Crowd

You may not have noticed it but it’s there.

A WHITE Person is killed in a firearms related incident.  The Liberal Left goes insane.  Full on berserker mode.  Heads spinning!  Exorcism worthy.

A BLACK Person is killed in a firearms related incident.

….

….

….

….

….

Yeap, that’s right.  That’s about what you hear.

Trayvon Martin had nothing to do with gun control.  Doesn’t fit.  The Martin-Zimmerman hullabaloo was all about Stand Your Ground Laws.  Even though Black folks benefit more from the “Stand Your Ground” laws in this nation, the Left will tell you that these laws are racist.  The only time that race comes into the question is when it is a Black Male shooting a White Male.  In those instances, Black Males are at a cultural disadvantage when it comes to Stand Your Ground laws.  The Left won’t tell you the full story.  One has to research this to find the truth.  The Right doesn’t want to talk about that last bit either.

The oddest bit about the Martin-Zimmerman contrivance was that Zimmerman isn’t a White Person.  He is Half-Hispanic.  If Half Black Obama is Black, why is Half Hispanic Zimmerman White?  That is the Left in action.  Duplicity.  Hypocrisy.

There have been approximately 9,000 Black on Black murders since Trayvon Martin was killed by Zimmerman.  Have you heard about this?  No, you haven’t.  Why?  Why does the left not use this as part of their Gun Control dialogue?  Maybe they don’t want to seem racist by highlighting Black on Black crime.  It’s taboo.  Discussing Black crime will see one branded a racist by the Left.  They can’t very well have an open dialogue about this issue if they won’t allow anyone else to honestly and openly discuss it.

 Black people in America suffer from gun violence so disproportionately as to be nearly unfathomable.  However, we can’t discuss this.  One problem is that discussing race is taboo in the Age of Obama and “post-racial America.”  The Democrats have painted themselves into a corner.  They won’t allow anyone else to discuss it.  This makes it nearly impossible for the Left to discuss it.  When Black leaders discuss it, they are marginalized and called Uncle Tom’s because “How dare they jump off message and out of the Democratic Plantation!”

America ignores the violence challenge of Black communities.  The only reason that Trayvon Martin received any press was that incident’s availability to the Left as a racial baton with which to bash America, the Red States, WHITEY, Red Necks and those who failed to obey by voting for Barack Obama.  If it weren’t for the political usefulness of Trayvon and his hoody, no Democrat in America would have given it one second’s thought.  That includes Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton who are the greatest race pimps in the history of mankind.

I will concede that Martin was murdered.  The reasons that I assign are quite different.  The Media has been portraying Black people on the news, TV and in movies as violent and out of control.  Reminders of Watts and Rondey King and O.J. Simpson are ubiquitous.  Black people are portrayed most often on TV as gang banging, hoody wearing animals on TV.  TV shows such as The Wire, Southland, The Shield and more portray all Black people as either corrupt or violent.  There are very few positive Black characters on television or in the movies.  The News may as well show pictures of Fallujah when they speak about Detroit or Chicago and it’s Black denizens.

With that in mind, White people start to see Black people as they are portrayed.  This country is only 13 to 15% “African American.”  Most White people have never had meaningful interaction with Black people.  They know of Hollywood stars, rappers, assorted other artists and Sports figures who are Black.  We’ve all heard of Marion Barry and Roy Nagin, Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson.  For many White people, these people ARE Black People or “African Americans.”  This picture of Black America is informed by the news which is always about violence (if it bleeds, it leads) or corruption.  If this was the only thing that you knew about a group of people, how would you react when you encountered them.

I’ve known Black folks my whole life.  I worked with Black folks in the Army.  I work with Black folks overseas in Afghanistan and
elsewhere.  I’ve had very few violent encounters with Black folks.  The one truly violent and racial encounter that I had with Black people was in Baumholder, Germany. Image I was jumped by eight black guys who thought that I was alone.  They jumped me and tried to beat me down while calling me a “dirty ——ing CRACKA!” and “F—-ing Honkey” and that sort of thing.  One of them yelled; “I got your massa’ right here” as he hit me with a brick in the face.  I yelled for my friends who were around the corner.  They came to my aid.  Two of those friends were Black guys.  We rough them off together.  I’m proud to say that I broke one of their shoulders with the brick with which they had earlier hit me.

How does one hate Black people for a bigoted beating attempt when those who came to your aid were also Black?  It’s kind of difficult.
This leads me back to WHITEY and the Gun Control Crowd.  There have been somewhere around 80 “mass gun murders” in the past decade killing approximately 200 people.  Primarily WHITE people.

In that same time frame, there have been thousands of BLACK folks killed in America.

Yet, the only time that the Left gets it’s faux outrage up into a self righteous lather is when it’s WHITE people being murdered in White neighborhoods.

I find this interesting.  I, also, find it further proof of the duplicity and callous bigotry of the DNC.  Race is only a problem in America when it is convenient to the Democratic National Party.  If race cannot be politicized, it is rarely raised as an issue.  This is the very definition of hypocrisy.  This is the Democratic National Party or Committee as it is called.

 

 

P.S.  Now think about all of the Police murders in Black communities.  The numbers are bewildering.  But let us not talk about this.  We’ll be branded “extremists” by the transparent Obama Administration.

 

Reparations for Black Americans

Image

Why should a non-victim or partial victim or co-victim have to pay reparations for a crime, oppression, repression or suppression which they did not commit and against which they have or would have fought if they were alive at the time.

I have been a victim of racism on several occasions. I was jumped by 8 black men simply because I was White. I was lucky as I wasn’t as alone as they thought I was and several friends, including Black friends, came to my aid.

How can I blame Black people for beating my ass when Black people were among those who came to my aid?

It’s the same with Slavery.

African Slaves were sold into slavery by Africans. They were sold to Europeans, other Africans as well as to Arabs and Asians.

African Slaves were ultimately freed, in America, because White people fought to uphold the Union. That fight, ultimately, ended slavery for the African in America.

Ironically, Slavery is still legal in some African Nations. It still exists. IN AFRICA.

Somehow, Bill Clinton thought it wise, humanitarian…an American duty to apologize to Africa for African Slavery.

That never made sense to me.

“Africa, we apologize Slavery by which I mean we apologize for purchasing slaves from African Slave traders who enriched themselves off of the African Slave trade.”

And now others wish for those who are descendants of non-slave holding Americans to pay folks who were never enslaved but who were descendants of slaves some 150 odd years ago or more because Africans sold Africans in to slavery to peoples of other nations thereby creating for all future Americans a period of indentured servitude that is essentially unconstitutional by enslaving future generations of said Americans to the Federal State and their minions at the IRS who will be forced to pay off the debt created by said reparations.

Something about that makes zero sense to me.

Maybe it’s just me.
