Calling Out Racists

So, Candace Owens was on Laura Ingraham last week with some racist Democrat. 🙂 Yeah, in a sense, I’m kidding, but in a pretty serious way, I’m not. Let’s take a look, via CNS News.

Owens debated Democrat strategist Monique Pressley about whether President Donald Trump is a racist. Owens said Trump wasn’t considered a racist until he ran for president.

PRESSLEY: I’m not here to defend anyone who takes the side of a racist, so when the president retweets or comments about Nazi enthusiasts or people in Britain who are saying things that are hateful or —

LAURA INGRAHAM: So you don’t think he was a white supremacist in the ’80s but you do today? You didn’t think he was a white supremacist in the ’80s or the 90s?

PRESSLEY: I said I didn’t disagree that he received those awards. I think when he was taking out the article on the Central Park Five who was then the exonerated Park Five, I think that he was a racist then.

INGRAHAM: That’s fine. No one’s gonna follow Central Park Five but I’m just asking you because I really do want to understand. Do you believe in the ’80s and ’90s that Donald trump was not a white supremacist or he’s been a white supremacist his whole life but hid it from everybody?

PRESSLEY: I can’t speak about what he hid or what I believe. All I can go with is what is factual. So what we know — if I can just answer, what I’m basing my belief on is the fact that he 1) took out an article for people who were ultimately exonerated – a full-page ad for those young men who were citizens — …

So Obama was someone who, according to him, was not born in the United States – I guess Hawaii is not part of the United States. The immigrants from the first time he came down the escalator were coming.

INGRAHAM: He didn’t say immigrants. He said illegal.

PRESSLEY: The Mexicans. I’m sorry. The Mexicans – not just the illegals, and I’m not here to defend —

OWENS: So basically, your argument is that he went from being so not racist that Al Sharpton was hugging him to suddenly one day he decided to run for president and boom, just like that he became an avowed racist and all of a sudden we’re digging back into Central Park Five, which by the way in his ad said that if anybody is found guilty, any person of killing somebody in the park, then they should be put to death.

Guess what? Nobody got killed in a park that day, so that’s completely irrelevant. All the points just made about Central Park Five were completely irrelevant, because the woman did not die. She actually survived. We can debate that another day. What we’re talking about today is nobody suddenly becomes racist, okay, as time goes on. You decide that one day he goes, oh, you know what? Never mind. Forget me hugging and doing so much for black America that I was receiving awards. Suddenly today, I’m a racist.

You want to know why he’s a racist suddenly? Because he ran for the presidency and this is how the Democrats try to score points in order to enslave black Americans ideologically.

PRESSLEY: When his entire family was running slum landlord tenements and then refusing..

OWENS: Actually that’s wrong. In Mar-A-Lago, he launched a lawsuit against the state because he felt that they were discriminated against Spanish people and black people. In 1995, Trump did that. You can look it up. So much for being a racist.

See what I mean? Not only do they lie, they tell stupid, obvious lies, and then they have the hubris to demand that we accord their every lie the status of given, unchallengeable truth. Yeah, well, no. It ain’t happening, not anymore. If you want to be taken seriously, your story must at least make superficial sense.

It is one of those obvious lies that President Trump was one of the leaders of the black community in the 80s. No that’s mot the lie, he was trying hard to help them then, as now. The lie is that suddenly when he became President he became a racist.

What he became is a truthful man, and the liars and yes, the racists, who work every day to keep the black people down on the plantation, are both horrific racists and liars. How many black people have had their lives ruined by this bigotry in our lifetimes? That doesn’t even cover their support for the Klan, for Jim Crow laws, and yes, for slavery itself.

Thank God, some of the blacks are finally awakening to what has been done to them.

CPAC 2019

So, the annual post of the CPAC videos, the ones I liked best anyway, for various reasons. We showed you the President’s the other day, you can find it here, well worth watching again. Enjoy

So let’s get started with Nigel Farage

Perhaps Candace Owens has something to teach us.

Common sense from the young ones, what’s not to like love.

Mark Levin put it together faster than any of us. He tells us about it.

So does Senator Cruz

Dr. Sebastian Gorka is pretty good, as well

And here is Charlie Kirk. Yes, I love these kids from Turning Point USA, and the fact that more than half of CPAC attendees that are of their generation. They mean that whatever we’ve screwed up, and it’s a lot, the message of freedom still rings across the land.

Michelle Malkin, who is one of my heroes, brings it and brings it hot and unvarnished. And she is spot on correct.

Here is one of the ways that they will try to impose totalitarianism on us. From Wayne LaPierre of the NRA.

Then there is, of course, my fellow Hoosier, the Vice President, Mike Pence.

There’s quite a few more, and you can find them on the internet. None are bad, these are just my favorites.

And you know, this has become one of those festivals of freedom that celebrate America and all we have done for the world, not to mention keeping us on track. And showing the world how, as well.

Spreading the Fire

On December 11. Candace Owens and Charlie Kirk spoke to a group at the RAC Club in London about the formation of Turning Point UK. It is interesting, and heartwarming to see the interest of the cousins across the water in their message, of freedom.

We have been called “the last, best hope of mankind” for years now. What is contained in that phrase is that we are the keeping of the flame, in that city on a hill that we remember so well. Watch and enjoy, and carry the message far and wide.

This is how the fire will spread. John Kennedy said it well

  We dare not forget today that we are the heirs of that first revolution. Let the word go forth from this time and place, to friend and foe alike, that the torch has been passed to a new generation of Americans—born in this century, tempered by war, disciplined by a hard and bitter peace, proud of our ancient heritage—and unwilling to witness or permit the slow undoing of those human rights to which this Nation has always been committed, and to which we are committed today at home and around the world.

Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, in order to assure the survival and the success of liberty.

And who later that day also said:

  Now the trumpet summons us again—not as a call to bear arms, though arms we need; not as a call to battle, though embattled we are—but a call to bear the burden of a long twilight struggle, year in and year out, “rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation”—a struggle against the common enemies of man: tyranny, poverty, disease, and war itself.  Can we forge against these enemies a grand and global alliance, North and South, East and West, that can assure a more fruitful life for all mankind? Will you join in that historic effort?

  In the long history of the world, only a few generations have been granted the role of defending freedom in its hour of maximum danger. I do not shrink from this responsibility—I welcome it. I do not believe that any of us would exchange places with any other people or any other generation. The energy, the faith, the devotion which we bring to this endeavor will light our country and all who serve it—and the glow from that fire can truly light the world.

We truly are the Revolutionaries, for we have maintained our freedom, we have kept the fire burning, and it may well again spread like a California wildfire. Remember when we won our freedom, a direct consequence was the French Revolution and the freeing of South America, and we continue to lead the world, even in freedom’s ancestral home, from which she has been increasingly driven.

But as long as America stands, the dream lives.

And thrice in a hundred years, America and Britain have together rescued Europe and the world from the dark night of tyranny. Now it is a new century, but the old enemy remains, as he always will.

Video Wednesday

These have been accumulating so lets watch them together, and clean out the files a bit.

Via The Conservative Woman, Thanks, Laura

Saturday Videos

Some videos to make you think, and maybe smile.

Haven’t had a new Bill Whittle for a while, and this is a good one.

 

Well, I can’t say I actually know much about Kanye other than he seems to think for himself, and that’s a lot. I do agree with him about liking how this woman thinks.

 

This is a bit long, but good, and shows how she got to here her thinking is today.

 

Two old friends: Tucker Carlson and Katie Hopkins

 

Peter Hitchens always make you think, you may not agree with everything, I don’t, but he makes me think, and that is not a bad thing at all.

 

And a badass campaign ad.

Time for the Red Pill?

An interesting story came out of Fox News last week. It speaks of women, minorities and such who are coming to understand just how oppressive the Democratic Party has become, and are making YouTube video explaining how they took the red pill, and how it is down the rabbit hole. Here’s some of it.

The mainstream media failed to see the rise of Donald Trump in 2016. Now it’s overlooking another grassroots movement that may soon be of equal significance— the growing number of liberals “taking the red pill.”  People of all ages and ethnicities are posting YouTube videos describing “red pill moments”—personal awakenings that have caused them to reject leftist narratives imbibed since childhood from friends, teachers, and the news and entertainment media.

You might say that those who take the red pill have been “triggered.” But instead of seeking out “safe spaces,” they’re doing the opposite, posting monologues throwing off the shackles of political correctness.

Their videos can feature the kind of subversiveness that was once a hallmark of the left—before the movement lost its sense of humor.

Candace Owens, a charismatic young African American, posts commentaries on her YouTube channel whose titles seem expressly designed to make PC heads explode.

A sample: “I Don’t Care About Charlottesville, the KKK, or White Supremacy.” The commentary calls out liberal fearmongering over white supremacists. “I mean there are, what, 6,000 Klansmen left in our nation. You want me to actually process that as a legitimate fear every day when I wake up?”

Here’s one of hers, on escaping the Democratic Plantation…

That’s some powerful stuff, I think. Continuing:

Not insignificantly, her video got nearly 500,000 views and overwhelmingly enthusiastic comments. (“you rock, girl!” “this woman is awesome.”)

A later episode about Black Lives Matter got nearly 700,000 views and had the distinction of being briefly taken down by YouTube. Unapologetic, Owens responded with a follow-up commentary — “What YouTube and Facebook REALLY Think of Black People.”

She declared, “There was only one version of a black person that these platforms are willing to help propel towards fame and notoriety—and that is an angry black victim.”  Owens calls her channel “Red Pill Black.” It invites viewers: “Sick of the alt-left. Welcome, I prescribe red pills.”

The term “taking the red pill” derives from the movie “The Matrix,” the trippy sci-fi classic. Morpheus, the resistance leader played by Laurence Fishburne offers Neo, the movie’s hero played by Keanu Reeves, a choice: He can take the blue pill and remain in the repressive artificial world known as the Matrix where “you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe.” Or he can take the red pill and tumble down the “rabbit hole” where he will come to realize that everything about his life was a lie.

The left’s intensifying war on free speech has produced a surge of red pill videos. Some take Owens’ in-your-face approach. Others are meandering, hipster confessionals delivered with the wordy earnestness of characters in a Duplass brothers movie.

In his YouTube Channel, Dissent Report, a young, one-time “Bernie Sanders supporting progressive Democrat” admits from behind large sunglasses that he’s made “a pretty hard turn to the right.”

Well, its far enough from my experience that I don’t have much of an opinion, but all my life I have hope that minorities would someday see that many of those who claim to help them mere want to rule them. Maybe they are finally waking up. That would make the pain of the last few years almost worthwhile. And besides, this talk of rabbit holes reminds me of this, maybe we can reclaim it too.
