The “racial reckoning’s” reckoning

Original Article

Posted By: Dreadnought, 11/7/2021 1:05:33 AM

The Washington Post has a lengthy article about how Tuesday’s election has dashed the hopes of black activists. The article begins this way: The summer of 2020 brought a renewed focus on addressing racism, with protesters filling the streets after the police killings of Black men; statues of Confederate leaders coming down from their prominent perches; and the leading Democratic presidential candidate promising systemic changes to right the wrongs of the past on his way to winning the White House. But Tuesday’s election results underscored how much the political winds have shifted since the start of what many activists had hoped was a new national awakening

According to demonrats, everyone is a racist now. So nobody is a racist. Demonrats can stick that moniker up their arse.

How many more centuries will it take before blacks start doing something for themselves instead of trying to force whites to do it for them?

Someday, blacks will tire of the Democrap plantation. Until they do, stop agitating for handouts and 'racial justice', and pull themselves up, they will never improve their lot in life. Whites, not even smarmy BLM loving white guilt types, cannot do it for them. Blacks will either control their own destiny, or be subservient to someone else's interests.

wapo buy into the dems racist campaign ploy. To help black people they should deal with the underlying issues of no fathers in the homes, and poor schools. These root causes would be right up camela's alley!.

Remember how homelessness disappeared when a Democrat was elected president and re-appeared when a Republican came in? Same with Blacks, that is violent blacks resisting arrest and acting threatening--Blecchs Lives Matter. They don't get coverage; it would make Biden look bad. I don't think crime has stopped. I DO think that without the coverage, the riots have less purpose. This is also a 'shift in the political winds' but is ignored, rightly, in this article. And, BTW, George Floyd wasn't murdered. The Cops did not pump him with meth and fentanyl, make him overweight, give him counterfeit currency to pass and tell him to resist. I get that Chauvin was sacrificed to spare more bloodshed... doesn't make it right.

As much as I hate to say it, Democrats “tough on crime” policies worked. And they also emptied out black neighborhoods of their men and filled the prisons with them. What can I say, cause and effect anyone? Twenty years later the democrats are running away from those policies like their asses are on fire. But they worked. I truly believe if the marxists hadn’t taken over the dem party our society would be more stable and civil. But then the rabble rousers would be out of jobs.

The Dems are too far gone to the left to easily move back to any sort of even remote approximation of sanity. They are WAY off in the insane racism, extreme leftist woods and I doubt that they can, with any of their current "leaders" come back to any sort of a law and order, normal sane policy plan. I hope that they will suffer severe electoral defeats for several cycles, to purge this literal, objective insanity from our politics.

Here my critical race theory before Obama the community organizer came along to fundamentally change everything I never gave race much thought, live and let live. Sixty plus years then Obama was elected not by blacks but by whites to put him into the White House, I thought Oh well it's the way it is. The cracks started soon after in the ugly race baiting that followed. If I wasn't racist all my life I am now for sure. It's what is called triggered by the opposition. I can't believe a nation would let itself become so racially divided but here it is. Teaching children CRT is dangerous which would never let a nation heal if it wasn't healed before at all. It's sure broken now if I oppose the thinking of leftist then I'm racist. FCRT

Amazing how much stuff going on right now was predicted by the late, great Rush Limbaugh. He told his listeners that black activists would not be happy that Obama won the WH. He was right. A black former Marine won the Lt. Gov election in VA, defeating a nasty racist opponent. So between her and Youngkin, I am hoping they both make black activists want to eat their own liver in fury.

As Republicans sit sucking their thumbs in terror, the radical race baiters push the envelope to where Kendi is preaching genocide in US government schools. I'm not worried. Their culture is collapsing in promiscuity, deviancy and drugs. family structure non-existent, burning down their own cities. Our illegitimate government will learn to stay out of it when they get booted out for meddling in sociai issues.

Directed Verdict and Big Problems for
the Prosecution in the Rittenhouse Case
11 replies
Posted by Dreadnought 11/9/2021 9:33:17 AM Post Reply
We reported earlier about the bombshell testimony at the Rittenhouse trial from Gaige Grosskreutz — the third man shot by Kyle Rittenhouse. He admitted Rittenhouse didn’t fire until he advanced on him and pointed his gun at him. In other words, a perfect example of self-defense in that interaction. Here’s the take showing the position at the time Rittenhouse fired with the Grosskreutz’s gun pointed right at him. It was a perfect television moment, the kind you usually only see on law and order shows, not so much at real trials. Many may have wondered about the comment about a “directed verdict” mentioned in that first video. The defense can move

We’ve written before about how the prosecution seems to have been imploding its own case in the trial of Kyle Rittenhouse. There was the opening statement where the prosecutor, Thomas Binger, claimed that Rittenhouse was chasing Joseph Rosenbaum rather than the truth that it was the other way around. Then he questioned his own witnesses without seeming to know what they would answer — with Richie McGinniss saying Rosenbaum lunged at Rittenhouse, said “F**k you!” and grabbed Rittenhouse’s gun and Ryan Balch saying Rosenbaum threatened to kill him and Rittenhouse. Today was perhaps the capper of them all that completely blew up the case. The defense was questioning Gaige Grosskreutz

The man wounded by Kyle Rittenhouse on August 25, 2020, during the Kenosha, Wisc., riots blew up the state’s case against the accused murderer under cross-examination on Monday afternoon. Though Gaige Grosskreutz spent a couple of hours on the witness stand, the man Rittenhouse wounded that night blew up the state’s case in one short span of cross-examination on Monday. Two other men were killed by Rittenhouse that night. Grosskreutz was a medic and was a peripatetic protester. He lived in Milwaukee and traveled to Kenosha to continue his 75-day protest streak following the death of George Floyd and the wounding of Jacob Blake in Kenosha. He live-streamed

My friend who reads the New York Times alerted me to this article about rural America’s continued movement away from the Democratic party. I’m glad he did. The article is well worth reading. The most noteworthy thing about the Times’ piece is the numbers it presents from Virginia: In 2008, there were only four small Virginia counties where Republicans won 70% or more of the vote in that year’s presidential race. Nowhere was the party above 75%. This year, Youngkin was above 70% in 45 counties — and he surpassed 80% in 15 of them. Virginia has 95 counties. The Times doesn’t say how many of them are rural,

Republicans probably wish the midterms were tomorrow, with the results of the elections this week, and now with the results of a latest poll on Joe Biden. It’s not looking good for old Joe and the Democrats. According to a USA Today/Suffolk University poll, taken Wednesday through Friday, many of the 1,000 registered voters contacted by pollsters delivered a very bad message to them — following up on the rebuke they got on Tuesday in the elections. Biden has the worst approval rating of anyone at this point in his term, 38 to 59 percent, except for President Donald Trump who was constantly being assailed by the leftist media,

That announcement from President Joe Biden about federal vaccine mandates that would affect nearly all workers in the private sector is about as solid as a slice of swiss cheese. Every time we think we’re getting our heads wrapped around it, more changes or exceptions seem to appear. The latest is being hailed by representatives of the trucking industry as “a huge victory” because the Department of Labor has now decided that most truckers will not fall under the mandate. And if they do, they will have the option of submitting weekly negative COVID tests instead of getting the shot if they wish. So what makes truck drivers so special?

The collective ability of Americans to fully appreciate global supply chain issues was called into question Saturday by President Joe Biden, who asked if “they’d understand” the topic and cut through to the main issues in the same way he does. The presidential observation came at a news conference as he answered a question from a reporter on criticism he drew from Rep. Abigail Spanberger ( D-Va). Spanberger said: “Nobody elected him to be FDR, they elected him to be normal and stop the chaos,” as Breitbart News reported. “I don’t intend to be anybody but Joe Biden, that’s who I am,” Biden affirmed.

Democrat President Joe Biden’s approval rating keeps sinking, now down to 37.8 percent in the latest USA Today/Suffolk University poll. The sharp turn against the sitting president comes as Republicans take a commanding lead in the generic congressional ballot, and the public sours on Biden’s agenda. A strong majority of 59 percent disapproves of Biden, with just 37.8 percent approving of his job performance and 3.2 percent undecided. Biden’s support crash, according to USA Today’s article accompanying the release of the polling, comes in large part because he “cratered among the independent voters who delivered his margin of victory over President Donald Trump one year ago.”

Former President Barack Obama called on world leaders to save the planet, but he couldn’t quite identify which country he was in. Mr. Obama’s speech Monday at the COP26 climate-change summit is being mocked for his reference to host Scotland as part of the “Emerald Isles,” which is a nickname for Ireland. “Since we’re in the Emerald Isles here let me quote the Bard, William Shakespeare,” Mr. Obama said. “‘What wound,’ he writes, ‘did ever heal but by degrees?’” Observers pointed out Mr. Obama actually committed two gaffes in the same breath. Shakespeare is considered the bard of England—yet another country. Scotland’s bard is poet Robert Burns.

Tacoma, Wash.—A metallurgist in Washington state pleaded guilty to fraud Monday after she spent decades faking the results of strength tests on steel that was being used to make U.S. Navy submarines. Elaine Marie Thomas, 67, of Auburn, Washington, was the director of metallurgy at a foundry in Tacoma that supplied steel castings used by Navy contractors Electric Boat and Newport News Shipbuilding to make submarine hulls. From 1985 through 2017, Thomas falsified the results of strength and toughness tests for at least 240 productions of steel—about half the steel the foundry produced for the Navy, according to her plea agreement, filed Monday in U.S. District Court in Tacoma.

Currently, gun shops can destroy their records after 20 years, thereby preventing the ATF from accessing the information in the future.
