Only 1 person was killed in the January 6 riot

Published

on

Ashli Babbitt, the slain unarmed white demonstrator on January 6, was murdered without even a verbal warning by a capitol security officer, special agent. A police shooting of an unarmed protestor.
No public outrage? She was a 14-year military veteran whose worst offense that day was trespassing and not a lifelong criminal like George Floyd. No investigation? Who read her Miranda rights or warned her, “Stop or I’ll shoot!”?
Crickets from the media!

Where’s the justice for Ashli? Did her white skin make her fair game? She wasn’t armed nor even wielding a stick or stone. She wasn’t yelling nor angry in appearance. She was following the urging of others to enter the opening in the door. If anyone deserves public sympathy for being an innocent participant it would have to be her. But no, she has no marchers, sign makers, slogan writers, nor righteously outraged champions.

Set the record straight

The riots on January 6 were not Trump inspired nor was it a “murderous mob.”
They were led by paid instigators who had been organized, supplied, supported and unleashed so as to prejudice the country against Trump. And it worked. Damn shame, but it did. Now the mainstream media and leftist politicians including our president are telling us repeatedly that this was the “worst domestic terror since the Civil War,” notable omission of 9-11. They want you to think that Jan. 6 was the all-time low of conservative politics. But it wasn’t conservatives who did the harm. Rioters did harm, but they were mercenaries, not conservative demonstrators.

10,600 to 1, and the 1 wins? 

10,600 violent protests in 2020 but only January 6 is complained about! Two people died in connection with the Capitol riot. One was the unarmed white woman murdered by the Capitol security officer. The other was a police officer who died from unrelated causes two days later. But the media lied and said he was mortally injured by rioters. Not true. In 2020-21 there have been murders, beatings of innocents, looting, destruction, vandalism, attacks on police, fires, violent takeovers of cities, invasion of quiet neighborhoods in the name of race and yet no outrage in the leftist media or politicians. What kind of people are OK with releasing violent criminals from jail, bailing them out (Kamala Harris did this), and unleashing domestic terror everywhere? You’ve got to be a special kind of low life to not be outraged by that. So, it’s not killing and hatred and destruction they oppose, instead it is what, Trumpism? Is there such a thing? .

Many people think the police (even the black cops) are out to get blacks 

In 2020 there were 37 unarmed white people killed and 26 unarmed blacks killed by police in the USA. Surprised the number is so small? Most people are. In an early May 2021 poll of 2,000 likely voters; Biden voters were much less likely to estimate the correct quantity of police killings. Only 25% of them estimated a low number. Many thought it was in the hundreds or thousands. Among Trump voters the accuracy was only around 40%. But if you listen to mainstream media you’d have to believe that police killings occur every day and mostly among blacks. Not True!

Criminals George Floyd and a few others died at the hands of police but where’s the outrage over the 37 whites killed by police, compared to 26 blacks killed by police last year? It is not there. How come when 8 people were killed by a deranged white murderer claiming “sex addiction” only 6 of them were mourned because they were Asian. And this sparked huge protests and bills in Congress about Asian hate crimes. What about the 2 other victims? I suppose he didn’t “hate” them? Worse yet, where’s the outrage over the hundreds of blacks killed annually by other blacks?

Black people comprise about 13% of the US population and yet they commit 52% of the murders. Granted this is being done by the worst among them, just as white crime is done by the worst whites. If you were in charge of reducing violent crime what would you do? Wouldn’t you focus on the bad actors among the 13%?

I’m sick of the black racists accusing police and others of “systemic racism”, “white supremacy” and a lack of fairness! Let’s stop giving air time or press coverage to hate mongers like Al Sharpton, Maxine Waters, Nancy Pelosi, AOC and her sycophants known as the Squad. Angry Tlaib, Pressley, Omar, Beto O’Rourke and whoever else follows this hate culture needs to be ignored and shamed for their propaganda crimes and incitement of violence. Words matter and their words have incited riots, real riots with guns, Molotov cocktail bombs, looting and murders.

This isn’t about race. This is about integrity.

Black skin doesn’t make you good or bad, your culture and choices do. White skin doesn’t make you a racist, your culture and choices do. Your attitude is a choice. Once you are an adult you are responsible for your attitude as well as your actions, no matter what color skin you wear. You can claim prejudice, disenfranchisement, marginalization, discrimination, lack of privilege, poverty, domestic abuse, bullies, crime or all of the above as the reason for your actions, but…YOU are still responsible. You choose whether to break the pattern. You choose to either become bitter or  better.

Blacks, Asians, Whites, Latinos and all races have risen above the many limits described above. They have ascended to the highest positions in government, business, media, entertainment, sports, education, literature, science and art. Race doesn’t determine your achievement. It only determines your starting point. Same as physical limitations, if you are short, basketball isn’t your best sport. If you are missing some limbs then wrestling or gymnastics might not be on the table. If you are blind, deaf, female and abandoned as Helen Keller was, that’s your starting point. Not your destiny.

I’m so sick of racial politics! The human race is the only noteworthy one. Let the racism go. Stop measuring it, reporting on it, and writing about it. Write about people not labels or categories.

Ashli Babbitt died without deserving to be shot. The special agent may have acted out of fear rather than anger. I don’t know but I do know that the color of their skin doesn’t matter.

What Does the Term African American Mean?

The Left vehemently champions racial division

Published

on

I’ve never understood why Black Americans for several decades running were referred to as African Americans. Even if their ancestors were from Africa, the majority of the nation’s 44 million Black Americans has never been to Africa, have no viable connection to the continent itself, and have little or no concern about it.

Please Explain it to Me

Now here’s the really confusing part. Black Canadians, to my knowledge, generally have never been called African Canadians. Black people in Mexico have not been called African Mexicans. There’s little use of this type of terminology in Europe such as African French, African Italians, African Spanish, or African Portuguese.

Why, only in America, did the description of Black Americans, namely African Americans ever take hold? Overarching names for the various races have fallen out of favor in recent years. White Americans generally are not referred to as Caucasians. Black Americans are not referred to as Negroes.

Endless Morphs

You have to wonder how and why terminology, for various segments of our population, keeps morphing into something new. At one time white Americans referred to black people as colored people. If I were a member of the black community and was referred to by white people as a colored person, I would be upset. We all have a color!

Later, the most appropriate way to address someone of color was to say they were a person of color. However, that is also a misnomer as once again, we are all of some color.

Scientists, anthropologists, social researchers, and others have pointed out that theoretically there are no races. If you lined up every single person on Earth from the lightest skin to the darkest skin the gradation from person to person would be so slight as to be virtually undetectable.

I like the approach that actor Morgan Freeman has taken, and I wish that more people would adopt it. He has eloquently stated, on many occasions, that one way to stop being obsessed with race is to stop talking about it.

Obsessed with Race

A large faction within the U.S. – Democrats — are populated by subgroups with overlapping views: liberals, progressives, socialists, and Marxists. They want to keep race at the forefront of all public discourse. In their eyes, virtually any topic that you can address – the total eclipse in April, for example – has some underlying racial component embedded within it. Not all topics have a racial component, but that is what they propagate on a daily basis.

What’s more, people on the Left are on the ever-present lookout for anything which they regard as a transgression when others are referring to minorities. They particularly are focused on anything that a Conservative says, at any time, even if it was 30 or 40 years ago, that to the Left some way represents a slight or lack of respect for minorities, particularly Black Americans.

For these ‘race police’ it’s like a game. They are delighted when they are able to find something, anything, that they can aggrandize to the hilt, have the mainstream media pick up, and whip into a social and cultural frenzy.

This bit of historical news might be hard to recall, but four years before Barack Obama was elected U.S. president, the topic of race was less contentious. A Gallup Poll revealed that 74% White Americans and 68% of Black Americans felt that race relations in the country were good. 19 years later, 43% of White people and 33% of Black people reported the same.

If we could only return to those pre-Obama days when Americans, of all types, had some common goals and shared the same types of aspirations such as succeeding in their professions, building a strong financial base for their family, and raising happy and healthy children.

Divided Forever?

Alas, with so many on the Left vehemently championing racial division it looks as if we don’t have good prospects, at least for the immediate future, to return to those hallowed, pre-Obama days. As an eternal optimist, however, I believe that one day the clamor will die down, and once again, we will simply all be Americans.
