Troubled Waters

Updated: 5 days ago

Another week and more absurdity from the left. It’s actually hard to understand the actions and to decode the language of the far left, but it is not at all difficult to discern the anti-American agenda.

Georgia Dems are Liars

After spending years railing against voter ID laws as attempts at voter suppression, this week former Georgia gubernatorial candidate (who still has not conceded her 2018 loss) Stacey Abrams just flat out lied. In 2018, candidate Abrams said that Georgia’s voter ID law was meant to "scare people out of voting" and “make it harder for them to vote” (The Hill). In 2019, she claimed voter ID laws was akin to “rigging the game” (ABC News).

All of a sudden, with poll after poll showing Americans, including people of color, overwhelmingly in favor of voter ID laws, Abrams asserted this past week, “That’s one of the fallacies of Republican talking points that have been deeply disturbing… No one has ever objected to having to prove who you are to vote.” Really?

She’s not alone, as Senator Raphael Warnock of Georgia has also recently suffered selective amnesia. The man who described voter ID laws as a “poll tax” in 2012, claiming they were “unjustifiable,” and during a sermon in 2015 said, “Dealing with these voter ID laws, this is not about voter verification, this is about voter suppression” (Fox News), now says, “I have never been opposed to voter ID” (Washington Post). He also said that such laws “…were designed to exclude women, Black people and the poor from voting…” and wrote in 2019 that Republicans in Georgia’s past were “turning the clock back on voting rights by passing unnecessary and discriminatory voter ID laws…” (Washington Examiner).

Anyone who votes for either of these two, and for their comrades in the race-hustling politics of the modern Democrat party, should do so knowing that they will never get what they are promised.

The Far Left is Racist

Let’s be clear, racism is prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against a person or people on the basis of their membership in a particular racial or ethnic group.” According to Merriam Webster, it can also be defined as, “the systemic oppression of a racial group to the social, economic, and political advantage of another.” Racism is alive and well in 2021 America, but it is not the sole purview of white nationalists. While racism in the past has generally been aimed at minorities, we are seeing a rise in a different kind of racism being perpetuated by so-called antiracists.

In Seattle this past week, a supposedly free event, white attendees were required to pay a “reparations fee” of anywhere from $10 to $50. The Seattle Human Rights Commission, another leftist farce, wrote to those who lodged a complaint regarding the racist fee, "We would like to recommend, if possible, that you educate yourself on the harm it may cause Seattle’s BIPOC community in your pursuit of a free ticket to an event that is not expressly meant for you and your entertainment." How does white people attending the event harm non-white people if they are there to support the cause of the event?

The Washington Post homepage, a post has a subtitle that reads, “Mental health experts talk about why understanding your whiteness is an important part of self-awareness for white people.” They recently aired an episode of The New Normal podcast, hosted by Nicole Ellis, which had guests spewing anti-white vitriol. Trauma specialist, Ilyse Kennedy, recommended white people undergo a “period of deep shame for being white and for acknowledging the harm that our ancestors have caused,” with Professor Rebecca Toporek further asserting that this may be needed to separate oneself from white supremacy. This is what the Washington Post condones, an ultimatum to white people that they either shame themselves for their skin color or admit to being a white supremacist? Author Resmaa Manakem suggested that white people need to form “accountability groups” and participate in such groups for many years to properly align themselves. Align to what? He also said, “An antiracist culture does not exist among white people…” Considering that antiracism seems to be racist, that might be a good thing. If this condemnation and revulsion of a race is the new normal, what would be different from the past?

Critical race theory, being promoted in our schools by zealous Marxist activists in school districts and the White House, divides people by skin color, condemning one group of people for past transgressions against another. Young Americans are being taught that all whites are oppressors and racists, incapable of understanding the truth of racism, and all blacks are victims being held down by the white majority. White children are being shamed and taught to hate themselves simply because they are white, while such hatred does nothing to help the mental or emotional well-being of black children. Critical race theory fosters divisions, promotes hatred, and empowers racism… this is the reality of the new left.

The “Hypocritical” Oath

In 2017, while in the minority in the U.S. Senate, 29 Democrats signed a letter urging the leadership not to eliminate the legislative filibuster. Among them, Kamal Harris, Corey Booker, Kristen Gillibrand, and Chris Coons. Coons, who actually joined Republican Susan Collins in leading the effort, now supports ending the filibuster. In fact, most of the Democrats who signed that filibuster-supporting letter are now open to its elimination. Now that the Republican minority is using the tool to block leftist legislation, the Democrats are crying foul. Schumer says it is ok to get rid of the filibuster now because the Dems are talking with the GOP about legislation, whereas Mitch McConnell never did that as Majority leader. However, on March 21st of last year, a day before Democrats blocked a Republican-led Covid Relief bill, Schumer said on CNN, “The initial bill Leader McConnell put in didn’t have any Democratic input and we were worried they would just try to put it on the floor, not consult Speaker Pelosi because the House still needs to pass this. But actually, to my delight and surprise, there has been a great deal of bipartisan cooperation thus far” (The Hill). Which is it, Chuck? There is nothing but hypocrisy regarding the filibuster. The same Democrats who supported filibustering President Trump’s agenda a record number of times now decry the legislative tool as racist. Obama calls it “a relic of Jim Crow,” and other Democrats have jumped on the Jim Crow bandwagon. The problems is… it was Democrats who always used the filibuster to fight against civil rights legislation – in 1957, it was Strom Thurmond; in 1964, it was Robert Byrd. Despite leftist claims, it is not the Republican party that has used the filibuster as a weapon of racism, but when has fact ever impeded the propagation of a liberal false narrative?

The left sermonizes tolerance but then attempts to cancel those who dissent from their dogma. Tolerance is only granted to those who support Black Lives Matter, denounce Trump and the Make America Great Again movement, condemn all whites as racists, support socialist redistribution policies, and preach anti-American revisionist history. If you disagree, they believe the first amendment is not absolute; if you oppose critical race theory, then you are a racist; if you voted for Trump, then you are a white supremacist. To the hypocritical hordes on the left, tolerance does not mean a world in which diverse opinions flourish and different thought is accepted, but rather a world in which all kowtow to popular leftist thought and those who disagree are eradicated… they are tolerant only of conformity.

Finally, how about the dedication and commitment the left shows to causes that touch their hearts. Bernie Sanders rails against economic inequality, the greed of the wealthy, and the inherent evil of American capitalism, all while he has amassed a net worth in the millions, including his three homes worth at least half a million dollars each. John Kerry, the nation’s climate czar (whatever that means), preaches the desperate need to sacrifice on behalf of our critically damaged climate and end our reliance on fossil fuels as he travels around the world in private jets. Hillary Clinton preaches the importance of believing victims and supporting those who have experienced sexual harassment and abuse, all while attempting to destroy the reputations and lives of the women who accused her husband of the same deplorable behavior.

We never see or hear the truth as the media is complicit in the Democrat deception. The liberal socialists are attempting to destroy our republic, institute a socialist state, restrict our liberties, and create a tyrannical government… all under the guise of compassion, tolerance, equality, and fairness. It’s time for America to wake up before it’s too late. Promoting racism is the liberal strategy to divide and conquer the American people. Lies, half-truths, distortions, and illusions are their tactics for gaining public approval for destructive, anti-American policies. Americans must be strong enough to withstand the onslaught of hyperbole and false narratives, contend with criticism and disparagement, and stand up for the principles that have made the United States the greatest nation in the history of the world. Our nation is in troubled waters, and politicians cannot bring our ship of state to a safe port. Only the American people can do that.
