Free Speech Wins Out In New Hanover


Over the last week or so, LGBT activists took aim at New Hanover County School Board member, Tammy Covil.  She dared to express an opinion in a closed Facebook group and comments on a related topic, which were on her own Facebook page.

I know, the horror…right?

The initial reaction was about what you would expect.

These tolerant LGBT activists claimed she was being ‘intolerant’, while at the same time Covil received death threats, hate mail — most of which were anonymous. Some of these folks even suggested she should have a ‘date with wire hanger‘ for her views.

Then the tide turned, as it tends to do when the facts come out about what the ginned up outrage is truly about. The unspoken core of this fight is about parental rights and the increased amount of social issue agenda items taking precedence over actual academics.

At any…

When is enough, enough?

I don’t expose my children to everything in the world just because it is in the world.

What are we asking our children to ‘tolerate’?

Who will God hold accountable?

Who You Calling a Racist? Again

Last year I wrote a piece (same title as this one) on my blog about racism after both Cliven Bundy and Donald Sterling made news for comments they made about Black people.

Let it be known that I believe strongly that prejudice is something we all hold, yes even racial prejudice. But that prejudice does no harm until it becomes a demonstration of power against a race or individual within that race.

“Racist” is a trigger word for most people, but it holds a particular punch when applied to white liberals. If you call a black liberal a racist, you will be laughed at. If you call a white liberal a racist, they will cry, and cry loudly!

Why the differences in reaction to the potent ‘racist’ word?

I believe white liberals react so strongly because they know they fit the basic premise behind the word — that ‘racism’ cannot be true without the addition of ‘power’. They know it is the power that harms, not the word.

“Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.” ~ Baron John Emerich Edward Dalberg Acton
Whites have always understood how ‘power’ is the culprit behind racism.

One hundred years ago, they were conservative Democrats who enacted laws known as Black Codes and Jim Crow as their show of power over freed Black slaves.

Today, they are liberal Democrats who continue to demonstrate their power in a self-righteous false narrative that promotes income inequality, White privilege, and White supremacy as the cause of the plight of Black Americans.

So why is it that little has changed — that Black Americans are still the poorest, least educated, lowest in real property ownership, most jailed, and most unemployed within America?

In my mind, it is simple. Whites will do everything in their power to ‘help’ except give up their power.

How does one give up being middle class or wealthy? How does one give up ‘privilege’ and ‘supremacy’?

One can take all the money one has and give it to the poor, and there will still be poor. The others are so nebulous and indefinable, that in my mind, they are unworthy of the energy to discuss, much less seek to understand. While we are wasting dollars paying college professors and community organizers to teach the foolishness of ‘white privilege’, those are dollars that could go to a poor neighborhood and build a charter school.

Liberal Blacks understand the real deal, which is why they aren’t fighting for power, but are accepting of crumbs of power from the ‘masters table’. Liberal blacks are not taking what little power they have to become more powerful in their own housing complexes, schools, communities, and states — no they are begging for the powerful white man to do it for them. Expressly recognized is that when blacks like President Obama, the Congressional Black Caucus, the NAACP, and the National Action Network become individual one-percenters, they fail to reinforce and promote black power where it already resides.

And then there is the conservative side, who 100 years ago were the champions of freedom and civil rights. Yet today, these are they who are considered by the left to be the most racist, most oppressive, most uncompromising when it comes to helping the po’ Blacks (or helping the po’ period).

Yet, it is they (those racist conservatives) who continue to be the champions of the po’ Blacks, or the poor period, because it is they who believe that race is no deterrent to the man or woman who has a dream of succeeding and does those things which will get them there.

It is they who are willing to get out of the way of that man or woman, by eliminating bogus ‘helps’ from dogooders and the government that don’t change anything, but continue to preserve the ‘power’ that props up racism (and class-ism).

It is they who believe that where help is needed, it should be given, but a perpetual place of ‘help’ is not power.

As long as liberals continue to promote false narratives that do nothing to promote self-empowerment, they are, at the most, the racists, or at the least, the one’s who keep the racism narrative alive.

Blacks don’t need to keep hearing how Whites keep them powerless. Blacks in America are not powerless, until they start to believe it!

Cultural Marxism | Politically Short

“We must be ready to employ trickery, deceit, law-breaking, withholding and concealing truth…We can and we must write in a language which sows among the masses hatred, scorn, and the like towards those who disagree with us”, wrote Vladimir Lenin.”

What is happening to America? Is the ‘promised change’ really the change we want? And if it is not the change we want, is it too late to turn aside?

The States won’t save us at an Article V Convention

There is a permeating fear among Americans who are starting to believe they are losing in a war against wrong-doing in government. The Article V Convention push is birthed out of that fear. Thank you for continuing to show Americans that they have not lost and how to change our country back to a Constitutional Republic.

“A State with No Republicans!”

via: @SamWhiskey on Twitter

“A State with No Republicans!”

Very interesting…Note this. A US State with zero Republicans in office

-The State of Illinois. Think about this…Some interesting data on
the state of Illinois:

-There are more people on welfare in Illinois than there are people working.

-Chicago pays the highest wages to teachers than anywhere else in the U.S.
averaging $110,000/year.

Their pensions average 80-90% of their income. Wow! Are Illinois and Chicago great or what?

Be sure to read till the end, never heard it explained better. Perhaps the U.S.
should pull out of Chicago?

Body count: In the last six months, 292 killed (murdered) in Chicago. 221
killed in Iraq; AND Chicago has one of the strictest gun laws in the entire US.

The Chicago chain of command:

President: Barack Hussein Obama .
Senator: Dick Durbin .
House Representative: Jesse Jackson Jr. .
Governor: Pat Quinn .
House leader: Mike Madigan .
Atty. Gen.: Lisa Madigan (daughter of Mike).
Mayor: Rohm Emanuel.
The leadership in Illinois – all Democrats.
Thank you for the combat zone in Chicago.

Of course, they are all blaming each other – can’t blame Republicans,
there aren’t any! .

Chicago school system rated one of the WORST in the U.S. Can’t blame Republicans, there aren’t any!

State pension fund $78 Billion in debt, worst in country. Can’t blame Republicans, there aren’t any!

Cook County (Chicago) sales tax 10.25% highest in country. Can’t blame Republicans; there aren’t any!

This is the political culture that Obama comes from in Illinois. And he is going
to fix Washington politics for us?/????????

George Ryan is no longer Governor, he is in prison.

Ryan was replaced by Rob Blajegovitch who is, that’s right, also in prison.

And Representative Jesse Jackson Jr. who resigned a few months ago, that’s
right, is also in prison.

The Land of Lincoln, where our governors make our license plates.

But you know what?

As long as they keep providing entitlements to the population of Chicago,
nothing is going to change, except the state will go broke before the country does.
“Anybody who thinks he can be happy and prosperous by letting the Government take care of him, better take a closer look at the American Indian.”

And check this last set of statistics!!

The percentage of each past President’s cabinet who had worked in the private business sector prior to their appointment to the cabinet…..

You know what the private business sector is – a real-life business, not a
government job. Here are the percentages: look!!!

T. Roosevelt………………. 38%
Wilson …………………….. 52%
Harding…………………….. 49%
Coolidge…………………… 48%
Hoover ……………………. .42%
F. Roosevelt………………. 50%
Eisenhower……………….. 57%
GH Bush…………………….51%
Clinton ……………………. 39%
GW Bush……………………55%
Obama……………………….. 8%

This helps to explain the incompetence of this administration, only 8% of them have ever worked in private business!

That’s right! Only eight percent — the least, by far, of the last 19 presidents!
And these people are trying to tell our big corporations how to run their business?
How can the president of a major nation and society, the one with the most
successful economic system in world history, stand and talk about business?
He never worked for one? Or about jobs when he has never really had one?

Bibi showdown with Iran a ‘replay of Bible story’

Esther 3:13 states: “And the letters were sent by posts into all the king’s provinces, to destroy, to kill, and to cause to perish, all Jews, both young and old, little children and women, in one day, even upon the thirteenth day of the twelfth month, which is the month Adar, and to take the spoil of them for a prey.”

But since the biblical day starts at sunset, Netanyahu’s speech Tuesday will actually begin the 13th of Adar here, and it will be the 13th of Adar in Israel as he is speaking.”

Black Ministers Welcome Netanyahu to Congress – YouTube

“This act of sabotage on the part of the Black Congressional Caucus is a betrayal to the Black church and our faith. We will preach of this betrayal from our pulpits and let it be known that our black elected congressional leaders have betrayed us, have betrayed our faith, have betrayed our Bible, and have betrayed our God!”

A Black Conservative Kid’s Thoughts Get the Beat-Down by Black Liberal Adults! Smh!

Recently I visited a black website, The Grio, to read an article entitled, “12-year-old CJ Pearson becomes Tea Party hit for claiming Obama ‘hates’ America in Youtube video”. (see video here)

Because of the title of the article, I was ready for the article and the readers’ comments to be left-wing, Tea-Party-rejecting, liberal, and Democratic-conforming.

What I was not ready for were the hateful, spiteful, demeaning reactions from the posters, especially the black posters (they had proud pics as avatars). The things said about his child and his parents read as following…

“Another one of the Black Devils!!! #clown”

“You dont  (sic) know what you are talking about child have a seat.”

“WTH?!?! will somebody sit this kuntre (sic) boy down somewhere. i think he just likes to hear himself say “merica” smh poor tink tink…boy has no clue!!!”

“I’m not surprised the Republicans are using a 12 yo as their spokesperson, that is about the mentality of most of the Republican leaders these days. But it seems a bit cruel to use a young child in this way.” (this one is white)

“Young coon in training sound like the nigga from back woods atl”

“He need to read a book and take his little self to bed!”

“He’s a white boy with a deep tan. Sit down little boy. This nation was not designed for Africans who were forced Americans. Stop following what you hear your parents speak on and learn the history of this great nation you speak on.”

“Whoever put this young child up to do such a stupid video must be as stupid as Mr. Rudy. This is how mis information (sic) gets it’s (sic) roots. Go speak with your elders first next time; Please!”

There are over 200 posts on this article! Please feel free to read them all (if your stomach can take it).

I love our freedoms and strongly support our First Amendment rights, therefore I have no problems with these folks stating what they feel/think about the video. What I do have a problem with is the hatefulness, dismissal, and intolerance they display in their words. The effects of this kind of unwillingness to listen to, respect, and value all contributions is what is contributing to the racial, political, and class polarization in America.

To be fair, I have visited other websites and found such polarization evidence among white posters as well. But here today, I want to focus my attention on members of my own racial group, black people.

I have three observations as a Black American which don’t shine favorably on my fellow Black Americans, 1) Blatant hypocrisy, 2)Racism, and 3)Political Tribalism.

Here I am focusing on the first, blatant hypocrisy. (I’ll tackle the other two in later articles)

Black folk are marching in the streets carrying signs that read, “Black Lives Matter”, and “Stop Killing our Sons”; yet when a 12 year-old, young black male expresses himself in a video; his blackness becomes irrelevant and the brutality against him becomes unmerciful.

This young man was called ‘a black devil’, ‘country’, ‘stupid’, ‘coon’ (an ole’ standby used for Black Conservatives), ‘white’, ‘tanned’, ‘little’, and ‘nigga’!

He was told to ‘sit down’, ‘read a book and go to bed’.

In addition to the personal character assassinations, this child was never given the benefit-of-the-doubt that his feelings, statements, and intellectual position were his own. What! A twelve-year-old is incapable of thinking, forming opinions, and passionately stating them in a video?

As a parent, here is something I know for sure — you keep telling a child that what he/she says is unimportant, to sit down, and shut-up — that is likely what you will get. You will have played a significant role in that child’s inability to communicate a position, argue in a debate, settle disputes respectfully, resolve disagreements, and assert himself respectfully.

Perhaps being told to sit-down, shut-up, and speak and be like everyone else is a contributor to why some of our boys can only speak in ‘hip-hop’, resolve conflict with their fists or guns, seek acceptance in gangs, and believe that a man is defined by his ability to make babies than raise and care for them.

Yes, black lives do matter. But here, with this young, black boy, not so much — it’s sit down and shut-up. Do you see the hypocrisy here?

If this young black boy decides to sit down and peruse the Internet to get a feel for what people thought about his video, he will find tremendously supportive and encouraging comments from white, Tea Party leaning, conservatives. But when he encounters those who look most like him, Black Democrats or Liberals, I pray he wears a spiritual armor. The shots taken at him are not coming from a gun, but they are just as intellectually lethal as any bullet!
