A Bulldog Nation Divided

Original Article

Posted By: Magnante, 8/26/2020 9:11:44 AM

One of my least favorite responsibilities on social media is serving as an administrator for a large group of Georgia Bulldog football fans. (snip) Last night unexpectedly became chaotic because Herschel Walker, unanimously considered by Dawg fans to be the greatest player in Georgia history and believed by many to have been the greatest running back in the history of college football, spoke about his long friendship with the president at the Republican National Convention in order to defend President Donald Trump against unfair and untrue allegations of racism.

As far as I am concerned, Herschel made another touchdown. Go, Dawgs!

This just brings home the point that I discovered for myself just a few years ago... Liberals have such a twisted and narrow world view that, for them, there is no rational explanation for why conservatives even exist. They are so profoundly myopic in their dogma and so dyed-in-the-wool in their indoctrination that there is no possible reason for conservatives to exist other than to be an enemy. Their personal universe is so small that they lack the cognitive skills to think outside of their own flimsy reasoning. So... they respond in childish outbursts in fits of rage. Conservatives, for the most part, KNOW why liberals exist. It is because liberals fail to see the larger picture. This is why liberals pass laws while not seeing any of the inevitable unintended consequences that conservatives warn about. Conservatives, mostly, live in a universe of understanding that is INCLUSIVE of liberals. The Conservative Universe is much larger than the liberals. The liberal constraints on their own understanding are fully understood by the liberal. We KNOW why liberals think as they do. We can understand why they think as they do. And, we know they are dead wrong. Liberals are profoundly selfish and miserable people. When was the last time you saw a liberal display a genuine and heartwarming smile? They don't. They are trapped in their little intellectual cages and thrash about emotionally, making them angry for just being alive. Liberals also do not believe in any god but themselves for the most part. Again, small thinking. Conservatives are much more likely to be believers in God and attend Church. Conservatives are also much more likely to be generous to causes that actually help people. Conservatives want to tackle real world problems and achieve real world results. Liberals are content to battle symbols and demand everyone think like them. Liberals are toddlers in grown up bodies.

My favorite Hershel Walker story is when he was in grade school his mother tried to stop him from playing football because she was worried he would hurt one of the other kids. When Sonny Bono entered politics he said his hardest decision was deciding whether he would run as a Republican or Democrat since once he announced half the people who knew him would hate him. Some lefties just can't accept that many black people want to think for themselves and don't need liberals to tell them what to think and say. Not to go off topic, but the language filters do strange things. I was posting a review of an audio/video receiver because the vendor asked me to and it was rejected because it thought the satellite radio XM was a curse word.

Mr. Walker's speech was really outstanding, IMO, the best of the night, but there were a number that were just a hair behind his in 'wonderfulness'. And if someone else liked another speaker more, I won't argue much, wonderful speeches. Thank you Mr. Walker. Well done!

Turns out they did, and when they headed out to Kenosha, Wisconsin, the cops shut them down. Here's the weepy Washington Post report: A Seattle-based nonprofit group that serves food to protesters said Thursday that several of its members were still in police custody in Kenosha, Wis., after law enforcement officers sprang from unmarked cars and arrested them

As I began writing tonight, I had a lot of tabs open. Shall I write about the racist attack The Nation launched against black Trump supporters? Or should I write about Nancy Pelosi’s suddenly announcing that Biden shouldn’t demean himself by debating Trump?

Some respond like trapped rats with viciousness or frantic manipulations. Others, though, are feeling something akin to relief.

In recent weeks, not only have we seen some very large holes punched in the narrative of what happened to George Floyd, but we’ve also seen the very thin veil come off, as the “peaceful protests” by Black Lives Matter and Antifa rapidly devolved into perhaps the worst string of violent riots the country has ever seen.

What planet does Joe Biden live on? In his campaign for president, he's promised more lockdowns if the "experts" tell him to do it, maybe permanent lockdown, lockdown as a lifestyle, which means shutting down the entire country. It's bizarre stuff given that it's already been done, with plenty of unintended consequences. It's a supposed leadership redo of President Trump's supposedly bad leadership on COVID. This, according to Joe, is how one really does it, so rewind the reel to March 2020 and let him start the lockdowns from there as if nothing had at all changed (snip) the call of someone still living in March 2020, embedded in amber

The future of local police departments has become a top election issue. Rasmussen released recent polls showing that Americans pay close attention to debates about law and order. For instance, 50% of likely voters want to see harder crackdowns on urban unrest, while only 38% support continuing protests in cities. Overall, 72% are concerned about recent reports of urban violence. Over 60% of Americans said their feelings about the protests will have an effect on their November voting.

On August 20th, President Trump’s former Chief Strategist Steve Bannon was arrested on fraud charges relating to the “We Build the Wall” construction project on the U.S.-Mexico border. The news made for splashy headlines, but story behind the charges was more mundane. Brian Kolfage, a triple amputee veteran and Purple Heart recipient, used a crowdfunding website as part of a political gag aimed at raising $1 billion dollars to construct a U.S.-Mexico border wall. After unexpectedly raising $17 million dollars within the first week, Kolfage decided to hand off the suddenly real and ambitious initiative to someone with more experience, connections, and resources.

I can’t remember a wildcat strike ever happening by a pro sports team, let alone an entire league, let alone during the playoffs. My guess is that it’ll alienate more people than it’ll win over, but alienation never lasts very long in sports. A million fans will vow today that they’ll never watch the NBA again and most will be back next week, or at least for the Finals. And everyone who isn’t will be back next season. The Milwaukee Bucks violated the collective bargaining agreement with the league when they decided to protest by not playing today’s game against the Orlando Magic.

KENOSHA, Wis. — Downtown buildings set ablaze by arsonists were still smoldering from the night before when Kirk Ingram started to paint an angel on his boarded-up store front. Ingram, a Democrat who runs a massage therapy business, said the war-zone images of his city on TV — armed people running through the streets, burned cars and broken windows — were bolstering President Donald Trump's get-tough message. Maybe a few uplifting murals could start to tell a different story about Kenosha, Ingram said Wednesday. Trump has attempted to frame the violent unrest in the wake of Jacob Blake’s shooting as

Deciding to go Colin Kaepernick one better, the NBA's Milwaukee Bucks players decided to cancel their playoff game to protest the Kenosha, Wisconsin police shooting of Jacob Blake, a career criminal with a warrant out for 3rd degree sexual assault, who was resisting arrest. That act triggered racial grievance riots, along with lootings, destruction, and a likely permanent decline for Kenosha, as usually happens in riot-torn cities. But the NBA didn't want to leave it alone and let justice take its course. Someone in the locker room of the Bucks suggested a game strike, and then the rest of them, lemmings-like, jumped onboard.

The Egyptian-born suspect had been sought on a capital murder warrant since the New Year's Day 2008 fatal shootings of the two Lewisville High School students, Sarah Yaser Said, 17, and Amina Yaser Said, 18. Court documents list no attorney for the suspect.A police report at the time said a family member told investigators that the suspect threatened "bodily harm″ against Sarah for going on a date with a non-Muslim.
