It’s not easy being history’s supervillain. In fact, in recent years, suicide rates have spiked among white men between the ages of 35 and 65 https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/reading-between-the-headlines/201305/white-middle-age-suicide-in-america-skyrockets . This is going to be a composition that will include our people’s history in Europe, our lines of descent and how we got to the place where we are today. It all started 45, 000 years ago, as the last ice sheets were receding and hunter- gatherers spread throughout Europe. These indigenous hunters were of swarthy complexion and many were blue eyed, as well. Around 7,000 years ago, there was a movement of people from the Middle East, who introduced farming into Europe and were apparently of fair complexion. At last, from the steppes of Siberia, came ( to borrow a phrase from Mr. George R.R. Martin) horselords who effectively conquered Europe and introduced a patrilineal society around 4,000 years ago, with the help of domesticated animals ( such as the horse) https://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-29213892 , https://www.thelocal.de/20140918/study-reveals-migrant-makeup-of-europeans , https://www.thoughtco.com/ancient-societies-central-asian-steppe-172847 , https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-3569545/The-founding-fathers-Europe-DNA-reveals-Europeans-related-group-lived-Belgium-35-000-years-ago.html. Since that time, Europeans have shot up to become some of the most successful international players in history. European males have spread the ideals of Christianity, patriarchy, honor, community and individuality all over the globe, with the Age of Discovery followed by the Age of Reason, freedom of religion, thought, expression and creativity has gone to levels unmatched by any nation in the history of the world https://www.britannica.com/topic/European-exploration/The-Age-of-Discovery, http://www.newworldencyclopedia.org/entry/Age_of_Enlightenment, https://www.gresham.ac.uk/series/the-rise-and-fall-of-european-empires-from-the-16th-to-the-20th-century/. What happened? Well, in relatively recent years, it has pleased contemporary society to cast the young to middle- aged white male into the role of history’s supervillain. I fact, I would posit that those who accuse white males of a history of suppression would themselves suppress the freedom of expression that white males have encouraged for so long. In recent years, white people in general and white men in particular have been targets of directed malice from pressure groups who demand that they change their very nature from a dominant group to one subservient to everybody else. We are the last group in the world that is actively encouraged by society to hate itself and that self- hatred runs deep https://www.bostonglobe.com/opinion/2017/07/02/defense-white-male/Me9UoUrcPbcljxRkPFlXAP/story.html, https://thedailycoin.org/2019/02/20/self-hating-whites-2/, http://www.westernspring.co.uk/the-mental-disorder-of-white-self-hatred/. The role that the white male is used to playing, that of the explorer, the defender of Western Values, the provider and the protector, has been taken from him and he is told that ” it’s his own fault” https://www.louderwithcrowder.com/14315-2/. It’s that evil patriarchy again! Here is a video I want you to watch and I want you to see it without hating yourself for your reaction: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=90XLNQXN_74. It’s funny. The natural reaction is to laugh. Of course, once we do that, once we do that, then it is implied that we are culpable for every racist act that has been performed by every racist white on the planet since the first hunter- gatherer looked askance at the first Middle Eastern settler around seven millenia ago https://www.huffingtonpost.com/wendi-aarons/theres-nothing-funny-about-your-racist-joke_b_7656212.html. Here are some more suicide statistics: https://afsp.org/about-suicide/suicide-statistics/, https://www.bcmj.org/articles/silent-epidemic-male-suicide. It seems that the only demographic who should apologize for daring to exist is that of the young to middle aged white male. Why is that? In this world of multiculturalism, is there no longer any room for what used to be the largest and most productive demographic? Why can’t we laugh? Why are we singled out for daring to react in a way that would seem totally natural if anybody else were to do it? One could, of course, answer that our unique history gives us all a collective culpability in our reactions. That is a coldly analytic view of a spontaneous laugh at something intended to be a joke. Maybe we can be allowed to chuckle without writing a thesis justifying our reaction to the rest of the world? If we are going to have any kind of productive dialogue with people who are conditioned from birth to hate us simply because we exist, then we need to face the fact that we’re struggling with a poison of self- hatred that has been insistently and consistently inflicted on us. If we so easily hate ourselves, how much more easily, do you think, it will be for us to hate others? If our own humanity is debased in our own eyes, how much easier would it be to project that debasement onto others? I think this might be a good opening point of a serious conversation. All is not lost, of course. We can educate ourselves and each other, not only about a past that we can be ashamed of, but also one that we can take pride in. We can also learn from the mistakes of the past and actively seek to avoid such mistakes in the future. We can also develop those lessons and improve ourselves as we learn more about who we are and how we relate to the general human family.
February 13, 2019 Another great post by Monique LaBarr on the environment and healthy living. We all need that this year. Think healthy! Think smart. Another great one by Andrew Gooding. Why so great? Andrew has undertaken an analysis of the book ‘The 5000 year Leap.’ Are our Republican politicians acting like Republicans? Are our Democrat politicians acting like Democrats? I’d say more like Stalinist Russia. They flipped their friggin’ minds. The new party is the Constitutional Party and I am a Constitutionalist. That’s a new word, add it to your dictionary. We have to go back to the core document, the very core. The perfect document. Then we must start to review each and every amendment, law, ambiguity and department because there have been traitors all along the way. That’s why there was such a need to get rid of Andrew Jackson. The American Revolution is not over. What could not be taken by force has been taken by stealth. We have, at this moment, almost completely capitulated to the enemy. Hence, to be a Constitutionalist is to know the war isn’t over. What was it the British wanted here? It was a tax, it was exclusivity to the Empire, and it was a Central Bank. How could two countries that fought 2 wars with one another be such good buds not very long after? Think about it. The face of the threat looks nicer, but it is even a worse threat now. It’s close to game over. Be a Constitutionalist.
we celebrate Martin Luther King. Why haven’t things gotten better?
Answer: Because all it did was create more and more racial
“special interests” which can only stay in business by making you believe racism is alive and well, and, unfortunately, they receive lots of help there by the wealthy and political elites.
But, to know if what I just said is racist, we must go to work in a country that has anything but English for a language but, where all the other variables are the same, like being overworked and under the gun.
Q: What does treason look like? September 9, 2018 (updated from editor A response to anonymous Op-Ed by anonymous. Naturally, everyone wants to know what was said on the Op-Ed. It’s absolutely insidious, and the side-commentary by the Times is insidious. I think the people of this country should really think, not only about free speech, but who will be speaking it when it’s taken away. Well, let me cut to the narrow for you; It will be the Times. They love their free speech, and only their free speech, especially when we are hit with a piece that they obviously wrote and are trying to pin it on the administration to get them pointing at one another. As I said; insidious. I Am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration I would really, really hope this is not the work of someone within the administration, because if it is, there are childish larks about in the oval office. I work for the president but like-minded colleagues and I have vowed to thwart parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations. So far, I have to ask why would the Times even give this a hair’s thread of legitimacy? The Times is taking the rare step of publishing an anonymous Op-Ed essay. We have done so at the request of the author, a senior official in the Trump administration whose identity is known to us and whose job would be jeopardized by its disclosure. We believe publishing this essay anonymously is the only way to deliver an important perspective to our readers. We invite you to submit a question about the essay or our vetting process here. Okay, here’s my question: The better judgement of the writer and the publisher would mean that neither have any credibility whatsoever. Should we call the authorities and alert them one of the city’s largest offices is occupied by adolescents? President Trump is facing a test to his presidency unlike any faced by a modern American leader. How stupid could this possibly sound? It’s not just that the special counsel looms large. Or that the country is bitterly divided over Mr. Trump’s leadership. Or even that his party might well lose the House to an opposition hellbent on his downfall. The dilemma — which he does not fully grasp — is that many of the senior officials in his own administration are working diligently from within to frustrate parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations. To do that, is to put yourself above both President and voters. It is TREASON, and it is absolutely insane. I would know. I am one of them. You are so brave. About what, I don’t know. To be clear, ours is not the popular “resistance” of the left. We want the administration to succeed and think that many of its policies have already made America safer and more prosperous. To be clear? Obama doesn’t work for the administration. Does he? No, no. President Trump wouldn’t hire an avowed Communist. But we believe our first duty is to this country, and the president continues to act in a manner that is detrimental to the health of our republic. It’s clear someone is acting against the will of the President and voters. That is why many Trump appointees have vowed to do what we can to preserve our democratic institutions while thwarting Mr. Trump’s more misguided impulses until he is out of office TREASONOUS STATEMENT. The root of the problem is the president’s amorality. Anyone who works with him knows he is not moored to any discernible first principles that guide his decision making. So, you go to a rag that tarnishes an entire people’s religion, (the Christian religion), They regularly print garish, vulgar statements and print gross, perverted portraits, and mock these people with laughter while they want them to be so happy about all these other religious lest they be racist. What kind of person would this be working for the President? I wouldn’t want the person to be a low-level janitor. Although he was elected as a Republican, the president shows little affinity for ideals long espoused by conservatives: free minds, free markets and free people. At best, he has invoked these ideals in scripted settings. At worst, he has attacked them outright. Okay, now we are hitting low-level delusional scum. This person wouldn’t have the faintest idea about being a conservative. In addition to his mass-marketing of the notion that the press is the “enemy of the people,” President Trump’s impulses are generally anti-trade and anti-democratic. Reading what you just wrote, and to the Times, President Trump, unfortunately, is 110% correct. Don’t get me wrong. There are bright spots that the near-ceaseless negative coverage of the administration fails to capture: effective deregulation, historic tax reform, a more robust military and more. A Communist statement meant to rouse the overwhelming amount of NON-citizens of our country. But these successes have come despite — not because of — the president’s leadership style, which is impetuous, adversarial, petty and ineffective Why did you work for him? You thought he was Obama? From the White House to executive branch departments and agencies, senior officials will privately admit their daily disbelief at the commander in chief’s comments and actions. Most are working to insulate their operations from his whims. A senior official who doesn’t know how to write “Commander-In-Chief.” Meetings with him veer off topic and off the rails, he engages in repetitive rants, and his impulsiveness results in half-baked, ill-informed and occasionally reckless decisions that have to be walked back. You mean like tightening the border up? “There is literally no telling whether he might change his mind from one minute to the next,” a top official complained to me recently, exasperated by an Oval Office meeting at which the president flip-flopped on a major policy decision he’d made only a week earlier. I would say that about the media and the Demagogues, I mean Democrats(?). If ever the words “gone fishing,” had meaning. They brought it. Fishing for one fish and catching everything else but a good reputation. The erratic behavior would be more concerning if it weren’t for unsung heroes in and around the White House. Some of his aides have been cast as villains by the media. But in private, they have gone to great lengths to keep bad decisions contained to the West Wing, though they are clearly not always successful. It may be cold comfort in this chaotic era, but Americans should know that there are adults in the room. We fully recognize what is happening. And we are trying to do what’s right even when Donald Trump won’t. The result is a two-track presidency. Please quit. Please. Take foreign policy: In public and in private, President Trump shows a preference for autocrats and dictators, such as President Vladimir Putin of Russia and North Korea’s leader, Kim Jong-un, and displays little genuine appreciation for the ties that bind us to allied, like-minded nations. Astute observers have noted, though, that the rest of the administration is operating on another track, one where countries like Russia are called out for meddling and punished accordingly, and where allies around the world are engaged as peers rather than ridiculed as rivals. Astute observers would also recognize that citizens have come to their senses all over Europe and are now electing people who pledge to protect their sovereignty. On Russia, for instance, the president was reluctant to expel so many of Mr. Putin’s spies as punishment for the poisoning of a former Russian spy in Britain. He complained for weeks about senior staff members letting him get boxed into further confrontation with Russia, and he expressed frustration that the United States continued to impose sanctions on the country for its malign behavior. But his national security team knew better — such actions had to be taken, to hold Moscow accountable. This isn’t the work of the so-called deep state. It’s the work of the steady state. It’s the work of a rogue state that doesn’t care about the will of the people or votes or the Constitution. It’s a vile portion of the state. Given the instability many witnessed, there were early whispers within the cabinet of invoking the 25th Amendment, which would start a complex process for removing the president. But no one wanted to precipitate a constitutional crisis. So we will do what we can to steer the administration in the right direction until — one way or another — it’s over. TREASON. You should be arrested for TREASON. The bigger concern is not what Mr. Trump has done to the presidency but rather what we as a nation have allowed him to do to us. We have sunk low with him and allowed our discourse to be stripped of civility. The media and you have made little of the murders committed by illegals and refugees and the people you have riled up to murder police officers ,riot in the streets, throwing rocks, starting fires and committing multiple assaults. But, you must think we are all stupid, you know like we didn’t see it. Senator John McCain put it best in his farewell letter. All Americans should heed his words and break free of the tribalism trap, with the high aim of uniting through our shared values and love of this great nation. The hypocrite rarely sees that they are the embodiment of what they hate. There is a quiet resistance within the administration of people choosing to put country first. But the real difference will be made by everyday citizens rising above politics, reaching across the aisle and resolving to shed the labels in favor of a single one: Americans. The writer is a senior official in the Trump administration. Who are you working for? That’s the question. I think the New York Times is a Communist Subversive magazine. We don’t have to gather evidence. They are giving it to us. We don’t have to seize the records. They are giving it us. Part 2 of this post will be much shorter, as we will have it in posted facts. In it, we will show the dangerous hypocrisy and double standards of the left’s take on “free speech.”
November 20, 2017 Everything is volatile. Everything is subject to change. But does it ever seem the changes are good? liable to change rapidly and unpredictably, especially for the worse. “the political situation was becoming more volatile” synonyms: tense, strained, fraught, uneasy, uncomfortable, charged, explosive, inflammatory, turbulent; How much can the most alert person take? Case in point: My own following of the stock market. Even with the data in front of my face, for the most part, I don’t even see it. I have been following certain stocks since the beginning of the year but, now I’m lucky if I have a handle on half of them. Along the way, I swapped a few out for others, but forgot to check their price at that point. Now, as we get near the end of the year, I’m missing the original price on a lot of them, (probably the critical ones). They were probably big losers. The ones I have left are half and half. Big winners, big losers. This is the stock market for people who assume that companies grow at a steady pace. Are they still around? I’ll research that later. So, it’s a draw. In this crazy world, I cannot afford a draw. Can you afford a draw? What is the solution in this world for being alert 24/7 for the things we need to be alert 24/7 for? My belief is the solution is 1 or 2 more yous to keep track of the stuff you can’t keep in mind all the time. What happened here? I don’t know, but maybe I can find the data somewhere in my huge mess of data. Why is it high tech has made things more volatile and less beneficial? Now! How about everything else? How about the account updates I get every week from multiple websites, all in nice small print? Updates to mortgages and insurance and utility bills, with eye-straining confused language? How about all the appointments that come and go and get rescheduled? How about the ones that change their rules, whatever, and then your account gets shut down or you get charged for things you didn’t want? Hey, you got that project done yet? Your boss wants to know. How about all the outside things you must do on doctor’s orders? Don’t forget to brush your teeth. The trash is full again. You gonna make that poor dog cross her legs all day? The days of the corporation have made it much more impersonal and time-consuming; Press ‘1’ if you would like to dance, press ‘2’ to just stand there, there are several callers ahead of you even though we have workers from all over the world. How about the missed communications while you were waiting for an operator? Oh, geesh! Another traffic jam! What happened to work-at-home? Did you get that inspection yet? You may get a fine. Don’t forget the mail, and pick up some more bread. You still have to get the wash done, but the washer is broke. By now, you know you must be superhuman in terms of alertness. But, that’s not enough because, even if you are very alert and cross all the t’s, you will run in to many, many others who make mistakes for which you have to bite the bullet or spend an incredible amount of precious time trying to correct. It’s either one of two things; 1) The biggy big management people and corporate heads are more than ignorant of the ‘little people’ in this matter. or… 2) They do know and that’s part of the plan. Think about it slave. Think about it. You may find some time out there in the interstate parking lot. How is it that companies talk about making life easier and instead, it continually gets more confusing and complex? Two hundred year-old laws are still on the books. We always conjure up the past in order to repeat the worst of it. Think slave. Think. It is possible to get beyond this insanity. All you have to do is make peace with the people next to you. But, you aren’t afraid, Mr. Steel pants. Here you go: When I look a lot at the division on YouTube and the local news continuing to drudge up the worst to keep the corruption game going, it is obvious that may be really hard. But, if you really are modern-if you really want change-why are you carrying signs bought for you by the same-said people and creating division? Still don’t want to get real? Okay, here’s a steal: . Yes, this has been updated because I see people love to read it. My advice is teamwork. Doing everything yourself is certainly no fun. In fact, it can become outright unbearable. It can drive you crazy. I want my readers to succeed. Don’t burn yourself out. What has been termed the Millennial condition out there in the Wide World of Sports is everyone’s condition. The ignorance is incredible at the top, isn’t it? Millennial indeed!
“Virtue Signaling,” Just Another Part Of A Larger Problem. “You’re talking a lot but, you’re not saying anything.” – (Psycho Killer, Talking Heads, 77). “Why don’t they do what they say? Say what you mean. One Thing Leads To Another.” – (One Thing Leads To Another, The Fixx, Reach The Beach, 1983) “Subtle innuendos follow, must be something inside.” – (Adam Ant, Goody Two Shoes, 1982). All songs – http://www.songfacts.com. (Relative then. Relative now.) Virtue is virtuous. The left accuses the right. The right accuses the left. The Boston Globe says a journalist from the Spectator came up with it.¹ The Spectator guy gives himself credit.² Someone else says it was first coined way back in ’04.³Everyone has a stick in their craw over the way the last guy or girl was using it, and whom or what the definition truly fits. I say, ‘who threw mud in the water?’ It’s a nifty term, it’s more descriptive than I would put it. I would call it plainly, “false virtue.” It all lends itself to the blurring of the lines that has taken place in America, over and over again. It has led to the double standards, hypocrisy, one-way streets and narcissism, ‘there’s what’s good for me and then there’s everybody else.’ It has led to the same crime calling for different convictions. The big believable screen is telling us lies or leaving out pertinent information. Politicians and talking heads make insinuations and then talk about them as if they were true. This is the establishment-your government=media=Hollywood=sports=corporate=repeat, repeat, repeat=judicial=purgatory in which all the cops are criminals, and all the sinners saints. This is they. This is them. But, wait-that was yesterday. Today, we talk of the cops’ heroism. Yesterday, we worshiped the First Amendment, today the Veteran, like never before. It depends on what the expediency of the day can contribute to the Big Plan.4 Today, what is bad may be good, depending on how our ‘corporate’ media wishes to view it. It is definitely trial-by-media and the courts are just an extra sideshow. There is something very dangerous taking place, and I would particularly ask the men, the women, the five races, the religions, the conservatives, the liberals, the Millennials and Boomers and X’ers, and Yada, yada, yada. Please take notice; your “shadow” government has created the very divisions they hoped would take place all along. And of course, we now have different applications of morality, ethics, laws and justice. Therefore, a bad person can be redeemed, and a good person made bad. Historical figures can go from heroism and importance to irrelevant, or a pariah. You, who probably know much more than I, are a revisionist, (bad), while I can be a revisionist, (good). We can have a statute of limitations or go back a lifetime. To them, it depends on the day and the narrative they are going for. Payday is coming up and I know you got the memo. The fiat bankers have been angling for control of this country since its birth. The death grip has been tightening starting with the years following the Civil War and the years of the Industrial Revolution. Banks and Robber Barons accumulated unprecedented wealth and power, leading up to the two World Wars. They have been slowly taking control of the government. It’s lucky for all us little specs that, at particular times, not everyone has wanted to play ball. I mean, guys like Louis McFadden. (love that guy). But they are still working on the same thing, the wealth is more concentrated than ever, and they are very close: a World Government-A big center of power by which you will all be controlled. Of course, I’m a crazy conspiracy nut, so, help me with the sane people who are are happily proclaiming it and writing about it in the MSM. Explain them. And, most are the go-along-to-get-along types. Most are helping them, their masters. There are people who are “virtuous,” but there are those that would like to blur the lines; blur the virtue, blur the differences of so many things. But, back to the virtuous virtue signalers. First, let us take the attacks of the Dems, all racially-aligned groups, the media, and our lovely popular movie and sports stars when now-President Trump stated that we must ‘stop the violence at the border.’ Hillary, to her talking heads to CNN, to stars Eva Longoria and every single star of Latin descent and sports stars galore seized upon it to make candidate Trump a ‘racist.’ What Mr. Trump said was actually true; there was a crazy amount of violence at the border. Movies were made about it, Juarez was the murder capital of the world, and gangs became a regular part of the American landscape. How does that make Mr. Trump ‘racist?’ It doesn’t. You would to conceive it in your own mind-and, then, we know something about you, don’t we? We know that you have a one-sided way of deciding in your own mind what is true. That you had to conceive it entirely without evidence. Then you proclaim it over and over. You make yourself a Savior of the Races. Nope. You are taking a selfish stance beneficial to yourself, or those who fund or represent you. Isn’t that what Hillary has done again and again? One had to know she would do it. I was already buh-bye. Amazingly, an unprecedented number of people jumped on board. Let’s talk about them. First-the Latino factor-self-serving-Period. Second-White people be racist-It’s all about the African Americans. Third-anything at all that seems like it could be discriminatory is all about the black people. Fourth-people wanting a better life. Too many numbers here to go that deep. All those “old white men” may have started talking about social justice warriors and virtue signaling. The SJWs tried to turn it on the conservatives. (Still trying). I watched a debate between Jorge Ramos, (Univision) and Jared Taylor, (white supremacist, racist, segregationist, nationalist, (etcetera, etcetera, and etcetera.) I mean, (American Renaissance), and it was quite interesting to say the least. Mr. Taylor seemed to make Mr. Ramos look like a Latin Supremacist, a racist, a segregationist, self-serving and selfish beyond the pale, (pun intended), caring about his own people and not giving a damn about European Americans, their land, or any of their interests as being American. Did I say seemed? He did. That’s because that is what Mr. Ramos is. He is a self-server of La Raza, (“The Race.”) There are way too many examples to cite. But one of critical note is Colin Kaepernick. Oh boy! Is he a good one? And how about all the sexual accusers? Maybe I’ll be able to point out how these lovely virtuous people don’t really care about the country or it’s countrymen, but about their own quest for power, to erase the American identity, and make it either their land, or a no man’s land, believing they have every right.* But, I’ll get to that issue. Let’s go to Colin. Colin Kaepernick was applauded by the media and fellow sports stars, and took a risk, saying he would do what he had to do to draw attention to ‘racial inequality.’ I read a brand new blog trying to shed light on this as a black man, so I’ll give him a shot here: There has been much tuhdoo about Colin Kaepernick and “virtue signaling.” Here is the opinion of one such, and a new guy on the block, so we welcome him: Matt Infald.5 What can I say? Where should I start? Like Mr. Ramos, it appears he sees things in “Univision.”6 I have no qualms with his first few paragraphs. After all, a lot of conservatives repeat what other conservatives say simply because it is negative towards liberals. He says, we don’t know what they really mean until we can equate them to actions. Good. Rather than take issue with his statements against President Trump, I’ll say what he says, what he does, is debatable. The Ohio governor, (Republican), would like him to know there’s another half of the country, but that half just wants him gone. Every time he has stuck his neck out, from top to bottom, the democrats are looking to take his head off. I’d have to review tapes of Obama. I do not believe he was under such relentless, consistent, attack…Establishment darling that he is. Kaepernick! Kaepernick! Well, Matt goes off on Mr. Trump, how he’s a Castro-styled blowhard (?), and self-aggrandizing. All those who voted for him are lobotomized, conspiracy-theorist, victims. I had to think back to Obama’s inauguration where all the white people who voted for him said he was for everybody, while all the black people thought he was just for them, and they laid all their expectations out that way—to which Obama was one huuuge disappointment. He believes Trump does not care about the flag, he doesn’t care about vets, he doesn’t care about the country, and he is the epitome of “virtue signaling.” Really, Matt? Matt cites his criticism of Senator McCain, which is correct. Mr. Trump had no room to talk, there. He called the country Third World, and said it is going to Hell. He’s right, Matt. The evidence is massive. He may not care about the country, but, I have a feeling he does. I believe, even if doesn’t do a professional job, he’s out there doing what is required. He pretty much financed his own campaign. He is foregoing the salary. His agenda seems quite aggressive. Perhaps he didn’t start out caring. Now, I think he does and he has to. I think if you haven’t done much for the country yourself, you’re not in a position to talk about it. He does call soldiers’ parents. He does honor his countrymen at the Cemetery, (Arlington National), and he honors the holidays along with every American. Nah, he’s not the epitome, Matt. Can we move on to Colin? Well, Matt says that Colin was just exercising his ‘First Amendment rights,’ and he thought if we loved America, we should see no problem in burning the flag. Matt says he was just protesting racial inequality. First, Matt, where was that First Amendment, when the alt-right, or whoever was trying to speak. Let’s say White Supremacists, even. Well, I heard several anti fa and Black Lives Matters supporters shout them down saying they had no right to speak. In the wake of Beyoncé’s rude entertainment at the Super Bowl, those White Supremacists, or whoever they were, probably saw all the black people wiping their bottoms with the flag. You know, I didn’t see President Trump doing that, Matt, did you? They probably saw all those green,black and red flags being waved. I didn’t see the White Supremacists waving those flags, Matt. Did you? You want the Confederate Flag down? Take those down. Also, they felt, rightly so, that his protest was misguided; wrong forum, debatable reasons, escalated from a police to a national issue. And, they would be right. First, we know, in the numbers, police kill many more white people-they just don’t have a fellow racebaiter around filming. They believe in justice. Definitely, two or three videos clearly showed police officers going way over the line. What I didn’t see was any indication whatsoever it was because of their race. Sometimes, when we talk race, we have to talk the truth, whether it benefits our side, or not. Next, would be the fact that black folks have done much better in this country than any other country by FAR. Not a little. By FAR. So, the question is: How can this country be so racist?** Every reason ever cited is a problem from within, not on the outside. But! If conservatives don’t like it, they can move to a country that doesn’t allow flag burning. Right, Matt? First, why should they leave a country they love? They aren’t complaining, Matt. Colin is. You are. What we know and you know, (unless you’ve had a lobotomy), is that the protest was disingenuous, and for more than one reason. Tell me, why is the virtuous Colin, who himself stated he was taking the risk, he was sacrificing for his people, now suing the NFL and trying to get his job back?????? What is virtue signaling? Well, to me, it’s when you say or imply how genuinely concerned you are, so much so, that’d you risk a career, as in Colin’s case. But, the country-haters got some blow-back. Too, bad. Now, you want your First Amendment rights? They were never against that, in case you’re still not getting it. They are against it being so untrue, just so untrue. They are against the false altruism. They are against people taking a family sport and turning it into a political grandstand like Beyoncé, like Colin. He’s not a hero. I guess he doesn’t really care about your plight as much as he said, because now he wants his job back. And finally, most of us, and I would agree, that the alleged plight is bogus to begin with. I can’t speak for President Trump but I can say Colin is a much better example of “virtue signaling,” -“Of false virtue.” Next, the sex scandals, another abysmal example of the “alleged” virtuously, brave women. The media, on and on and on, about “brave women.” Really? Good corporate maneuvering because they are either completely ignorant, or in absentia, or both. News flash: Anyone with two cents of power abuses it. Sad, but true. We aren’t talking just about women. This country is littered with its victims. In fact, it is a much bigger, monolithically bigger, problem that would be worth highlighting. But, back to the ladies: Being molested, or assaulted and speaking out years, indeed decades, later about it is not too brave at all. Maybe the first, not any other. You see there has to be risk. The ladies were not only not willing to risk, but now they are seeking reward! Bogus, bogus, bogus. That is virtue signaling. What brave women, who wouldn’t risk their job, and Colin, what a brave person who wouldn’t risk his job. So, there had to be many, many other victims to come. It still doesn’t address the larger issue of the abuse a multitude of people, man and woman, suffer behind company walls. Much, much more damaging, played out daily by the thousands, (a guess). It doesn’t get you elected though, does it? Even if one employee manages to speak up for another, it goes hush-hush. The extent of the problem hasn’t even been touched. “In the twentieth century, it almost a joke in the Western world to use words like ‘good’ and ‘evil.’ They have become old-fashioned concepts, yet they are very real and genuine. These are concepts from a sphere which is above us. And, instead of getting involved in base, petty, shortsighted political calculations and games we must recognize that a concentration of evil and a tremendous force of hatred is spreading throughout the world.” -Solzhenitsyn.  https://www.bostonglobe.com/ideas/2015/12/24/virtue-signaling-and-other-inane-platitudes/YrJRcvxYMofMcCfgORUcFO/story.html  https://www.spectator.co.uk/2015/10/i-invented-virtue-signalling-now-its-taking-over-the-world/  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virtue_signalling  N.W.O.  https://medium.com/@mattinfald/colin-kaepernick-the-flag-fetish-and-conservative-virtue-signaling-49b2caab81a  White Racist/ Brown Racist  “Warning To The West”, Alexander Solzhenitsyn, First Edition, 1976, p.43.< datetime=”2017-11-12T21:11:43+00:00″ (anyone of such virtue may give up their personal land and personal rights may be so inclined.
