Amy Coney Barrett has some
‘splainin’ to do on white racism

Amy Coney Barrett has some ‘splainin’ to do. Last week, Judge Barrett said the death of George Floyd from “racist” police was “very personal” to her. She worried that someday her adopted black children -- and grandchildren -- might suffer the same kind of “brutality.” She even told the national audience turned in to her Supreme Court confirmation hearing that her family cried about all the violence white racism could wreak upon them. One way or another, sooner or later, Judge Barrett’s family will learn the real threat to their safety in their new hometown of Washington, D.C. is not white racism but black violence

While I strongly support Amy's elevation to the Supreme Court - - I was appalled by her ignorant and whiny comments about George Floyd's death. Floyd was not "killed" - - he died from a severe drug overdose. He was not choked, asphyxiated, or smothered. The police actually extended his life by a few minutes by keeping him immobile until medical help arrived. I hope Amy's comments about Floyd aren't typical of the judgments we'll get from her. Ignorance and maudlin commentary are not what we bargained for.

It's true, George Floyd died while in police custody. To the best of my knowledge, it has not yet been proven that "racist" cops killed him. I keep reading that George Floyd died at the hands of the police. That has not been proven. but at least one medical examiner reported he had enough drugs, fentanyl for one, to kill him. We will see. Jes' sayin!

There is nothing to explain. White people are evil, corrupt, and guilty. This is an axiom and not open to question. Please ignore the historical fact that slavery has been common since the dawn of history. Most ancient Greeks were slaves. Slavery was common practice (and continues) in Africa. The United States abandoned slavery 165 years ago. But white people are still guilty of slavery. And oppression of Blacks. Western Civilization was once taught in most colleges and universities. Now this teaching concerned a type of civilization taught by white people. Since it was instituted by white people, it is a priori racist and evil. To follow the tenets of Western Civ is to act white, and thus be inherently evil. The notion that one must follow the precepts of Western Civ to be successful is an abomination. Such things as going to work on time, working while at work, proper grooming and dressing, common courtesy, using the common language, and refusing to use obscenities are all acting white and therefore forbidden. Just because some blacks have done this and succeeded is no reason to imitate them. We must free ourselves from the outmoded dictates of Western Civilization. We must adopt the anti-woman and anti-police and anti-business view of BLM. We must look to Antifa for leadership. How else can we return the United States to savagery? The savages WILL have their way. We WILL submit to the thugs.

It’s a little late now. As a a dim might say, such monolithic, purely ideological, unthinking, unhinged from factual reality statements are “troubling.” No doubt her adoption choices were racially motivated, which the Dims tried to turn into something evil. Such adoptions are fashionable. But if you’re adopting, one has to choose. Television is preferring hybrid colors to avoid choosing. At least if she is an originalist she perhaps doesn’t see the Constitution as racist. The article was not clear about the context. If a questioner asked her about racism, then she would necessarily answer in terms of racism. Fearing “racism” is not the same as seeing a group of people as racists. Let’s hope she’s an honest person; she really can’t be ignorant of the facts, but she could be wilfully oblivious to them. Let’s hope she’s not a “sleeper” for the dims.

In 1965 there was ZERO racial prejudice at Howard University. NONE, including students, other staff, and the entire administration. I was an eye witness. That's why the following is so disturbing: "From the moment they stepped on the campus of Howard University -- America’s most notorious black college -- they were threatened, assaulted, and robbed. Then run out of the cafeteria and off the college grounds because they were white, and one was wearing a Trump hat. The school paper opined about how proud they were of the Howard students for protecting their school. Soon after the school president tweeted in agreement."

As much as some people would like to ignore reality, fact is Floyd had enough drugs in him to kill several people. The cops didn't kill him, it was proven by toxicology reports, video evidence and other testimony. He killed himself, and he committed what I would classify heinous crimes. I feel no sympathy for Floyd, especially since he held a knife on a pregnant woman and threatened her unborn child. The good judge needs to educate herself on a few things. It isn't whites her Haitian kids need to worry about. It is the other black kids willing to do them harm.

I have noticed in American History that the french were not adverse to marrying American Indians, that the Spanish were not adverse to marrying American Indians, but the English folk were not a part of that idea. If my observations points toward a kind of discrimination, then, the idea of racism is in the (eastern part of the) since about 1620.

Perfection is the enemy of progress. It is far too late to second guess this. If Colin insists on waiting for a better Bork, the rats will appoint another communist lesbian like Kegan or Sortofamirror. Too many Republicans helped to earn the title of the stupid party. It took a total outsider like Trump to pick up the banner and push past all the certified Republicans and gather more people behind him voting Republican than anyone Colin could name. For goodness sake, fight. Seize the opportunities when they happen and work to make more happen. Scalia was happy to work with her, so a nobody like Colin should be willing to trust that judgment.

Biden’s most revealing gaffe yet 10 replies

Joe Biden has a well-deserved reputation as a gaffe machine, but an offhand comment yesterday in Pennsylvania while addressing a parking lot with a few cars in it, tells us exactly what we need to know about him at this precise moment. Hillary Clinton’s notorious “basket of deplorables” slur about those who supported Trump has become immortal (snip) Joe’s insult does even more blowback damage to him. Watch as Biden refers to those who oppose him as “chumps” (and coughs into his hand – don’t shake hands with him, folks, ever) (snip) Snobbery is bad, no doubt, but openly characterizing common folk (aka, the voters) as chumps reveals felonious intent.

The moment Donald Trump and Joe Biden appeared on the stage, Trump was in control. He looked robust, while Biden appeared frail and slow. Trump’s dominance extended beyond looks. He ably defended his record against attacks from both Biden and the moderator, Kristen Welker. He also politely, but insistently, pressed Biden on his decades of failure, the damage he caused to the black community, and his corrupt dealings with his son, Hunter. It was a rout. Those expecting Trump to be a bit of a madman, as he was during the first debate, were disappointed

Democratic nominee Joe Biden holds a slight lead in Texas over President Donald Trump among likely voters in Texas, according to a poll released Sunday by the Dallas Morning News and the University of Texas at Tyler. The poll showed Biden with the support of 48 percent of likely voters, compared with 45 percent for Trump. The results represent a shift from the same poll in September, when Trump led by 2 percentage points. One difference from September is that Biden has expanded his lead among Hispanic voters from 30 percentage points to 48.
