Americans of Another Civil War

Original Article

Posted By: Ribicon, 7/3/2019 4:56:56 PM

Mayor Pete Buttigieg on Tuesday warned Black Americans of a new civil war if the federal government failed to end racist institutions and pay reparations for slavery. “If we do not tackle the problem of racial inequality in my lifetime, I am convinced that it will upend the American project in my lifetime,” he warned. “It brought our country to its knees once and if we do not act, it could again.” Buttigieg spoke about racial issues during a Chicago speech at Jesse Jackson’s Rainbow PUSH Coalition and Citizenship Education Fund. The South Bend mayor spoke about the burden he carried

Comments:

Stinky Pete demonstrates that he can kneel, and bend over too. Could the promise of Free Stuff outweigh the usual black opposition to uncloseted twinks? Stay tuned.

Warned? Sounds like he is justifying and encouraging open rebellion. All while bewailing his "burden". What garbage.

Gee - - I wonder if the Pubbies, RINOS, and NeverTrumpers will finally realize that this is a war - - and must be fought as such. Nah - - I guess not. Being a Pubbie, RINO, or NeverTrumper doesn't seem to be curable. We'll have to fight this ourselves.

I can't see where race would have anything to do with another civil war. Liberal craziness, yes, but not race per se.

What racist institutions is he talking about? The all black colleges, the black college fund, the black only dormitories, the black Miss America pageant, the Congressional black caucus, the NAACP and I could go on and on.

I am not aware of any racist institutions that the federal government has failed to end, except the demoncrat party, the SPLC, and such. If there is another civil war, it will be because so many blacks are preying on White folks and becoming increasingly uncivilized; and the same with leftists, who now seem to believe violence against conservatives and Christians is fun and justified. When we have had enough and start fighting back, it won't be so fun. The only question may be whose side the police and government will be on. They seem to have an irrational fear of patriots and armed Americans.

Inflammatory rhetoric like this is totally irresponsible and ignorant. And it probably thrills Barack Obama, Eric Holder, Valerie Jarrett, et al. What's next? Reparations for gay men? Wait...how would that work? Oh, never mind, if a transgender woman can get a free abortion, than we've already abandoned reality for crazy.

#11 nails it. The only remaining racist institution in the USA is the Democratic Party and its fellow travelers. Committed to keeping blacks dependent on government, cheerleading the breakup of the black family, tolerant of inner city crime, forcing them into underperforming schools. Wake up my friends. Observe which party wants you to succeed and which party wants to keep you on the plantation.

There is likely a civil war coming but the cause won't be racism. It will be because of people like Butgig who are trying to destroy the country through their radical socialist agenda. When actual Americans, those who love the country get enough of their BS, they will stand up. It takes a lot to move them to action, but when moved, watch out. Hopefully we will not be too far gone by then.

I don't want to say or type his name. I don't want to call him names because he is not worth the fuss. And that's the point: He and his rhetoric are not worth the fuss. We are not going to have a civil war. Most crimes against black Americans are by other ... wait for it ... black Americans. Blaming whitey ain't gonna cut it. And most African Americans don't blame white folks for inequality -- at least not the ones they are neighbors with. What this guy is pushing for is an expansion of what has destroyed so many in minority communities: Dependency upon government and the tacit destruction of the two-parent family. Sperm donors don't have to be fathers. And despite unprecedented forms and availability of birth control, women become mothers out of wedlock. Why? Because the Left has taught the poor -- who are often minorities -- that the government is their father and mother. The Left has not taught personal responsibility. The Left gives away free mobile telephones when the rest of us have to pay our own bills, for example. This guy needs to look in the mirror -- and not because he is white or gay. HE and his ilk are the source of so many problems in America today. And then these SOBs want to guilt the rest of us into giving them -- by force -- more resources to hurt the poor and minorities even more. Screw Mayor Pete! Screw him in hell!

It was REPUBLICANS that stood for the freedom of the slaves. It was DEMOCRATS that opposed it. It was REPUBLICANS who, in 1964, voted in greater number and in greater percent of their party FOR the Civil Rights Act of 1964 as compared to Democrats who tried to defeat it. Now it is DEMOCRATS who are trying to scare blacks into continued reliance upon their DEMOCRAT MASTERS instead of thinking for themselves and voting for what is best for them. DEMOCRATS have historically been the party of Slavery. The only thing different today is that, in stead of picking cotton and plowing fields in order to enrich their masters, they only have to vote for them every 2 years. The end result is the same. Blacks get nowhere and their masters get richer. If you are a black man or woman and reading this, please write this next sentence down and stick it in your Bible right after the Gospel of John and before the Acts of the Apostles, because it is a truth you should remember... 'The very day that blacks support conservatives with 30% of their vote is the very day that conservatives will pay attention to you because you are capable of being persuaded to vote for them, and it is ALSO the very day that liberals will for the FIRST TIME start to pay attention to you because you are willing to vote for SOMEONE ELSE'.

You have your head so far up your own sphincter that you fail to grasp that actually forcing tax payers to pony up reparations for a institution that no one alive today was responsible for or affected by may very well be the spark that lights the civil war powder keg.

Black reparations after the Civil War was 40 acres and a mule for a man, woman and two children. The acreage was on the frontier. At Civil War pricing, that's probably about maybe $300 total for a family of four. Between all the benefits and job help they have been given, I'd say we already paid more than that many times over.

Essentially what those fruitcake leftist Democrats are doing with their out of control rhetoric is trying to incite and provoke violent racial incidents on the streets of America between now and the 2020 election, and then if they occur will try to fraudulently blame them on President Trump and Trump’s supporters. Unfortunately for the leftist Democrats, racist institutions have been eradicated decades ago by the federal civil rights laws. Today any Black person or anyone else who is willing and able to work, because of the booming Trump economy has a job, and do not have the time to get involved in any sort of Civil War. Right now there are millions more jobs out there then there are out of work Americans who want to work, and that is certainly a problem for the leftist Democrats who want to keep minority communities dependent upon leftist Democrat social welfare largess.

"#Christmas planning has begun in the East Wing at the @WhiteHouse," Melania Trump tweeted. "I'm looking forward to sharing our final vision for this unique tradition in the coming months." Many questioned the timing of her tweet considering it came as Mueller was concluding his testimony in front of the House Judiciary Committee. He was testifying about the two-year long investigation that concluded that no member of the Trump campaign knowingly conspired with Russia to win the election.

Robert Mueller is a very impressive man. Until he opens his mouth. Or, perhaps, he is just a calcified, barnacle-crusted swamp creature long past his prime. If that’s the case and Democrats forced him out of his retirement home to just play along with their silly partisan fantasies, then they should all be rounded up and arrested for elder abuse. Either way, it’s no wonder why Mr. Mueller fought so hard against testifying publicly before Congress. But there he was: in the bright lights on national television sputtering, bumbling and doddering about some report these people kept talking about. Again and again, Mr. Mueller would wander off topic and his mouth would wander off

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) in an op-ed piece published Thursday said a July rally in which Trump supporters chanted “send her back” in reference to her will be a “defining moment in American history.” In the op-ed published by the New York Times, the freshman lawmaker discusses Trump’s ongoing attacks against her and three other progressive minority congresswomen, Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) and Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), which led up to the chants at his rally last Wednesday. “The president’s rally will be a defining moment in American history. It reminds us of the grave stakes of the coming presidential election: that this fight is not merely about policy ideas;

There is a reason why MSNBC host Rachel Maddow’s ratings have cratered so dramatically recently. Here’s what she told her viewers on Wednesday night about former special counsel Robert Mueller’s disastrous performance before House lawmakers. I will tell you, I was not quite sure what to expect from today’s testimony by Robert Mueller. If you had told me that today, we would get from Robert Mueller over the course of these seven hours such a blunt accounting from him…of who in the president’s campaign was compromised by Russia, and how, specifically how they were compromised by Russia, including the president. That’s certainly putting a positive spin on the day, isn’t it?

Two things can be true about former special counsel Robert Mueller’s congressional testimony yesterday. It was damaging to President Trump, contradicting the president’s key claims and defenses about the Russia probe. And it all but closed the door on the likelihood of Democrats impeaching the president – given the congressional math. Here’s a fuller breakdown on our six takeaways from yesterday: Mueller contradicted Trump’s story on the Russia probe: “It is not a witch hunt,” Mueller said… “It was not a hoax.”… Russia’s intervention helped Trump’s campaign — not Hillary Clinton’s… Trump was NOT exonerated by the report… And “problematic is an understatement” is how Mueller described Trump’s use of the WikiLeaks

Recently accused and previously convicted pedophile, Jeffrey Epstein was found inside his jail cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center late last evening after what is reported as a possible assault or suicide attempt. While the two sources for NBC did not say that any material was seen in Epstein’s cell to indicate there was a possible suicide attempt by hanging, they were able to include details such as Epstein being found in a “fetal position” with marks on his neck, and that he wasn’t fully conscious.According to the local report, an additional four sources are giving multiple accounts of the Epstein incident.
