When I first saw this news yesterday on Yahoo News (not my only source of information mind you), I was less concerned with his LIES, but rather interested in the Comments to that news story. Leave it to Yahoo News postings on such subjects to draw out all the older white “conservatives.” (I have been trying to figure out why there are so many of these “misinformed” Caucasians on Yahoo, and I conjecture it has to do with Yahoo being around for a long time now, but all the youngsters, who would mostly be much more liberal in views, have long ago migrated to other news platforms.)
As I expected, the cheese the ex-Speaker through on the floor brought out all the rats. I did not spend any time at all reading the Comments, as they all fell into categories that I expected, all revealing, as we who seek love and peace know, the level of emotionally charged ignorance typifying BMT’s (Bottomless Moral Turpitude……that which occupies the Oval Office) baseless base. I can summarize their common retorts here, along with the truths:
- The NYT is out to get Trump: “WE are out to get Trump, indeed, as citizens concerned about any common criminal should be.”
- Slavery has been around throughout world history, so let’s keep slavery in America in its proper context: “Slavery in America was on par or worse than any in world history. The effects of slavery are embedded in American society, and have for decades given Whites the privileges born from the worst kinds of cruelties inflicted on African-Americans. The shadows of slavery are alive everywhere in this country today, and without Light being Shone on that Vile Darkness, this Nation will fail, meaning everyone in this Nation will fail. A song by Curtis Mayfield from ‘back in the day,’…..<If there’s a Heaven or Hell, We’re ALL gonna go!>”
- We need to just move on, as all this discussion about slavery and race relations is holding back progress for the US: “Ain’t gonna happen my friends. We are going to keep this in your face till you amend or are 6-ft under. There can be no Peace when there is no Justice! Do not tell Blacks that they must be satisfied to “move ahead” being trillions of dollars behind Whites and others, when the foundation of this Nation was built on their backs.”
- But Whites contributed to the building of this Nation, not just Blacks: “Now how f’ing selfish is that statement! No one is trying to demean the contribution of Whites that was morally righteous then, or now. But any attempt at equivalency is an old and fallacious argument, because of the relative price Blacks paid versus Whites.”
The photograph above is of KKK in Dallas, Texas back in the 1920’s. I have lived in Dallas most of my adult life, and as I discovered just recently, when I began my career my first “boss” was the son of Dallas’ District Attorney during the years that the KKK ran this city. So we are well aware that many of the son’s, grandsons and granddaughters of such men are alive today, wearing those RED CAPS. Keep wearing them, we like knowing who you are, for there is nothing worse than a racist with a smile.
