I’ve already noted, time and time again, that the Left has convinced itself that there is no possible way that Trump wins in November. This was echoed in 2016, when they were really wrong, and I don’t expect it to be different this year.
The Left relies far too heavily on polls that they can manipulate and rig (and often do exactly that) and determine the likely results of the election from that alone. They look at national and state polls, particularly battleground state polls, and convince themselves that Trump is toast and there is little, if anything, he can do to save himself.
I’ve already expressed why this is utter malarkey time and time again, whether you are talking about the 2016 election or the 2020 one, but one writer for Spectator USA (not to be confused with the American Spectator) is not at all convinced that Biden will defeat Trump.
The title of his piece is: “Get ready for Trump’s second term,” and the subhead reads: “Much depends on whose hands control each House of Congress.”
So this writer, named Leonard Toboroff, is convinced of the exact opposite of what the Left is convinced about: Trump is going to win re-election.
He begins by noting who exactly Trump’s opponent is: “President Trump’s adversaries are running Joe Biden, a fallback Beltway lifer who is credibly accused of selling his office, leaking false intel about Gen. Flynn to the Washington Post and handsiness with female political allies. Oh, and it appears that a prosecutor in Ukraine is digging into the potential criminal liability of the one or more persons who gorged on Burisma’s trove of US taxpayer funds. Joe’s son Hunter is named, and so Joe, in a context not yet fully disclosed.”
Now, the fake news media will never pay attention to the graveyard that is Biden’s closet, but informed voters will take note of the many illegal dealings of Joe Biden, as well as his questionable character and record of failure as Senator and Vice President.
However, the election will be about far more than Joe Biden’s past. Toboroff notes that if there is a criminal investigation in Ukraine, nothing much will come of it, pending a potential Joe Biden plea of cognitive impairment that will allow him to walk (though, if such a plea is made before the election, that would be rather devastating to his campaign because it’s one thing to note he is mentally impaired, but it’s another thing entirely for him to admit it to a court – not that I actually expect anything to come out of Biden’s dealings with Burisma).
But Toboroff eventually begins talking more specifically about Trump and brings some much-needed logic to illogical fake news polls. He writes: “How is it possible for Trump to have 54 percent approval on the economy and 70 percent disapproval on the virus – and in the same poll? Nor would 300,000 people have donated a total of $20 million in a single virtual fundraiser by Trump if they believed the near-unanimous propaganda that he’s certain to lose in November. Nor would the ‘peaceful’ (Joe’s word) burning down of a courthouse in Portland, Oregon, cheered on by its mayor, edge Trump into a two- or three-point snap lead over Joe in a solid blue bastion.”
And he’s right about this. It makes no sense for so many people to be willing to donate to Trump if everyone and their grandmother believes it’s a lost cause. You don’t donate to a candidate you think will lose just because you might be trying to make a point or because you believe in their agenda or whatever else. You donate because you expect them to win and believe they will win.
The Saudis didn’t donate to the Clinton Foundation as much as they did because they expected Hillary to lose. They believed she would win, and when she didn’t, the Foundation saw a sharp decline in donations. The Saudis (and others) were trying to buy access.
But with Trump, regular people are donating their money and it makes no sense if they expected him to lose, especially in economic times such as these, when many people’s jobs have either been furloughed or eliminated completely.
People do not believe the fake news polls that claim Trump is toast. These polls were claiming the same thing LAST SUMMER, back when even the people RUNNING the polls didn’t really believe the polls and wholeheartedly expected Trump to sweep through reelection. These polls were claiming the same thing in 2016 as well, even up to election day itself, when some people had Clinton’s chances of election to be over 98%!
The fake news polls can claim whatever they want – reality will show something far different.
At any rate, Toboroff continued, noting the sort of approval ratings he is getting from Rasmussen, which is at around 48% and “trending up.”
“Translated logically, this gives Trump a wide lead in all battleground states that would translate into a bit more than 300 Electoral College votes. Let’s take this as grounds for examining what a second Trump term would lead us to expect.”
Toboroff notes that a lot will depend on which party gets control of both chambers of Congress. Like Lincoln, he writes, Trump “faces a House divided.” But he expects Trump and Republicans to win back the House, while also keeping the Senate as well.
With this expectation, Toboroff says that one of the biggest, if not the biggest focal point for the next four years will be the situation with China, specifically, militarily. “Trump will believe that a military buildup will propel economic growth – and it might, because now ‘military’ encompasses most all of the strands of American energy, from innovation to distribution.”
He notes that Trump won’t trust his intel community’s report on the military strength of China and will test and verify for himself just how strong they are, be it through pushing back against the ChiComs at the South China Sea or by possibly protecting Taiwan from a potential invasion (especially since Hong Kong has fallen to the Chinese communists and Taiwan was never recognized by China as an independent nation).
Now, I do not exactly want a conflict with China that would escalate into a war, particularly as we are trying to get out of endless wars in the Middle East, which establishment members of both parties have prolonged for as long as possible. But with a militarily-aggressive China, Trump will have to do something, especially if we wish to keep China from growing its influence (which has been a bit shattered by the Chinese coronavirus).
On the Homefront, Toboroff writes that “rebalancing the judiciary” aka turning the lower courts away from the radical liberals and towards the Constitutional conservatives, focusing on an American education system that does not promote the failed and dangerous ideology of communism and focusing on punishing the people that tried to undermine Trump’s first term with the Russia hoax are things that Trump will have to keep an eye on.
These, I would argue, are some of the biggest issues in America today. The Left’s influence is far too massive and obstructive in the lower (and highest) courts and we need to change that. Regarding education, I have long written about how we need to reform education so that communism does not get promoted and taught (in a positive way) in schools, while also bringing back God into the classrooms (and the atheists who have a problem with that can lick my boot).
Toboroff suggests charter schools, which is definitely a good option. Charter schools are schools of choice (not dependent on districting) and are independently run, though publicly funded. The Left HATES charter schools almost as much as they hate homeschooling because they can’t get their filthy paws all over the students to corrupt their young minds and teacher’s unions don’t apply to these schools.
They don’t like charter schools because they work fairly capitalistically: if they are better, parents will choose to send their kids there, as opposed to the crappy ones. The Left doesn’t want parents to have a choice as to where to send their kids to school (at least, as long as the parents live in a particular district and don’t move out).
Transforming the education system will be crucial for the future of this country, which the Left has had far too much influence in constructing.
In any case, to begin wrapping up, Toboroff fully expects Trump to win a second term and expects that second term to be rather full for Trump, what with having to deal with a 21st century USSR, having to ideologically reform the judiciary, having to practically reform the education system so as to not indoctrinate generations into foolishly and dangerously believing communism is not absolute crap, and dealing with American traitors who tried to cheat in the 2016 election, failed, and then tried to undermine Trump’s first term and remove a duly-elected president through the Russia hoax.
I, like Toboroff, do not buy into the idea that Trump is finished (as I have demonstrated in numerous articles). The only thing I will add is that no one should buy into the idea that Trump can’t lose and get complacent as a result. The Left will do what it can to cheat in this election; they will pull out every dirty trick they have to in order to ensure Trump doesn’t win again. We cannot afford to get complacent and believe Trump is guaranteed to win. I believe he will, but will go out to vote (IN PERSON) to ensure his victory.

The fake news media, for the past couple of months, was reporting on the riots as being “peaceful protests”, and only recently have they figured that showing a bunch of violence does not lend credence to their words, so they have just decided to claim they were peaceful while not showing any of the violence that is objectively happening in many places.
As always, despite what the media reports, reality is considerably different. However, there sometimes are fairly objective reporters, even in relatively Leftist organizations like the Associated Press, who are embedded in the thick of the stories and have to report what they are actually seeing themselves – or at least, feel compelled to tell the truth instead of denying the reality they themselves might be witnessing.
Mike Balsamo is an investigative reporter for the Associated Press who was in the thick of the riots in Portland, and more specifically, the riots attempting to destroy a federal courthouse.
Balsamo reports in a Twitter thread: “I spent the weekend inside the Portland federal courthouse w/ the US Marshals. Mortars were being fired off repeatedly, fireworks & flares shot into the lobby, frozen bottles, concrete, cans & bouncy balls regularly whizzed over the fence at high speeds.”
He continues: “We wanted to show you a look inside the protests from both perspectives – out in the crowd with protesters and inside the courthouse with federal officers. It was a really eye opening [sic] experience to see it firsthand. I was inside the courthouse & [a fellow AP reporter] was outside the fence.”
“I watched as injured officers were hauled inside. In one case, the commercial firework came over so fast the officer didn’t have time to respond. It burned through his sleeves & he had bloody gashes on both forearms. Another had a concussion from being hit in the head w/ a mortar.”
“The lights inside the courthouse have to be turned off for safety & the light from high-powered lasers bounced across the lobby almost all night. The fear is palpable. Three officers were struck in the last few weeks & still haven’t regained their vision.”
“When we were out inside the fence line, someone fired off a mortar. It exploded inches away from us, but no one was hurt. A large bonfire had been started in the street & people were aiming fireworks through the fire at officers behind the fence. It was almost 2:30 a.m. then.”
“The officers outside the Portland courthouse have been hit by an array of objects from canned food to ball bearings fired from slingshots. On Saturday night, a DHS officer was soaked completely in orange paint thrown from one of many paint cans later seized by authorities.”
Balsamo also reports that the “tactical decisions” made by the federal agents were “very thought out”, largely in order to avoid escalation and larger trouble. Reportedly, at one point, the rioters had cut a large hole in the fence and decided not to go out to avoid escalation. They only really acted and dispersed the crowd once the entire section of the fence was pulled down.
Before I move on, I would like to speak of a couple of things. First, while I can perhaps understand that this is the AP and they have certain “standards” for reporting on these things, it is still a shame that Balsamo referred to these people as “protesters.” They are not protesters; they are violent communist rioters. Many of them don’t even know exactly why they are there other than to spread chaos and try to “take down capitalism.”
This has LONG ceased to be about racism or police brutality or whatever else. Those things may be the excuses thrown by some of the rioters if one were to ask them, and certainly, those are the excuses thrown by the media and the Left, but they are nothing more than that: excuses. If this were about racism, black-owned businesses would not have been burned down within the first WEEKEND that this whole debacle started. If this were about police brutality, Nike stores and jewelry stores would not be constantly looted (not that I care one wit about Nike, considering they benefit from slave labor in China. If looting their stores hurts them financially, good).
Secondly, while I can understand decisions made by those in charge of the federal agents, particularly to try and protect the agents themselves, I don’t know why they don’t just stomp all over the would-be communist revolutionaries present. The riots in Portland have been happening for two months straight, and this is without taking into account that Antifa riots had been happening rather regularly in Portland for at least the last few YEARS. Granted, their hands may be fairly tied by the local government and the honest-to-God moronic mayor, but one would think they would try a bit more to defeat the riots, considering these are FEDERAL agents. Not sure if federal agents have to answer to the mayor of a city, but these riots are not going to end any time soon until they are UTTERLY defeated.
What that means could be a number of things. Maybe arresting the lot of them, but they can only arrest so many people, and not all of them are taking actions that directly harm the officers, so they wouldn’t be in jail for all that long and would quickly rejoin the riots because these people have no lives. Maybe electoral victories, but that would be outside of the agents’ power and it would have to mean a majority of people in Portland voting out spineless people like the mayor, but the riots would still go on (I also do not at all expect Democrats to lose in that city).
I don’t know what the solution to the Portland riots are, especially as they had been happening for some time now, apart from a show of overwhelming force that serves to completely demoralize these criminals, and even then, who knows how effective that would be?
At any rate, returning to Balsamo, he then goes on to report on what some agents he had spoken to had to say. A Deputy US Marshal had reportedly told Balsamo: “I am worried for my life, every time I walk outside of the building.” Balsamo reported that that sentiment “extends widely. They are offended by being told to get out of Portland. They live here, work daily to take violent criminals off the street & it is their city too.”
Eventually, Balsamo reported: “One thing is very clear: there’s no plan for the feds to retreat right now. Those protecting the building feel a personal & professional duty to protect the courthouse. Many raised the same point – the courthouse stands for justice, for all people. And they aren’t going anywhere.”
All of this chaos, as moronic Democrats claim that there is nothing violent going on in Portland (and other places) and yell at AG Barr during a Congressional hearing because he has chosen to DO HIS JOB AS THE HEAD OF THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE.
Of course, I perhaps shouldn’t be calling Democrats “morons” at least for this. While they are exactly that, they are also evil pieces of crap, who have accused Trump of trying to destroy the country while they are doing exactly that, quite literally at this point. They LOVE the chaos and violence happening right now in places THEY run. Even if their own mayors get insulted and have to have armed body guards protecting them from the violent peasants, those very mayors will still go in front of a news camera and say how “peaceful” the people throwing concrete at police officers are.
Meanwhile, they tell you, like mafia gangsters, that all of this violence and chaos (which they do not acknowledge is happening) will all come to an end if we all vote for Biden.
Scummier people have hardly been seen before.

Truth be told, there are far too many reasons I could list that would answer that question for me to fit into one single article. I have already brought up, in the past, how the polls were showing Clinton would win by a landslide in 2016, and even shown the specific poll numbers and electoral vote predictions from a number of people, so there is no need for me to bring that up again.
There exists another reason that is far more contemporary than the 2016 polls: 2019 and 2020 polls.
You see, Matt Mayer has an interesting piece on Spectator about how “Predictions of Trump’s demise may yet again be premature.”
Mayer begins by showing the following numbers coming out of battleground states: in Arizona, Biden is up by two points. In North Carolina, he is up by eight; 11 in Pennsylvania, 10 in Michigan, 9 in Florida and eight in Ohio.
Under normal circumstances, and in a world where the news media is honest and objective, such numbers would spell trouble for Trump. However, we know perfectly well that the latter is not true, as we are literally talking about fake news polls. But that is not the only reason those numbers are suspect, and in fact, are not exactly bad news for Trump at all.
You see, those numbers that spell doom for the Trump re-election campaign were from last summer, before the Chinese coronavirus (and subsequently, the administration’s response to it, which some would argue was botched or at least not as good as it could have been (not that I am such a person)) and the “racial” riots we are seeing across the country and subsequently, Trump’s response to that as well. Last summer, just about everyone, Left or Right, was just about convinced that Trump would steamroll through the election and easily get re-elected.
Now, the Left is convinced (to an extent) that Biden will beat Trump as a result of the last roughly half year. So, then, those numbers that already had Biden winning in those battleground states have to have gotten bigger for Biden, right?
No, actually. Aside from Arizona, where Biden is now “ahead” by six points (a four-point increase), Trump has “closed the gap” in the other battleground states, in some by roughly half or even more.
In North Carolina, where Biden was supposedly leading by eight last year, he now only leads by one. In Pennsylvania, where Biden used to lead by eleven points, he now only leads by five. In Michigan, his lead is now only 6 (four-point decrease); in Florida, his lead is seven (two-point decrease); Wisconsin, Biden’s lead is 6 (three-point decrease) and in Ohio, Biden supposedly leads by six (two-point decrease).
If Trump truly butchered the response to the Chinese coronavirus and has performed abysmally in terms of dealing with racial inequality in America, and subsequently, dealing with the rioting and the destruction and burning down of places of business, homes, etc., - if Trump is truly as big of a screw-up just in the last half year as the Left says he is, how is it that polls show him gaining ground as opposed to losing it?
Like I said, last year, just about everyone was fully expecting Trump to easily win reelection. Despite what the polls said, I don’t think even the fake news media carrying those polls were convinced that Trump would be defeated by any of the 666 Democrat presidential candidates. Despite Biden’s lead early on, he would tend to flounder and he inspired just about no confidence at all, or even any energy. NO ONE is excited to vote for Biden, even now. Bernie was the clear opposition candidate for the DNC establishment and they did whatever they could to ensure Bernie would not be their nominee. Bernie got cheated twice.
The rest were a random assortment of lunacy, idiocy and radical communism but little personal appeal or notoriety to get very far in the polls. Warren was a cultural appropriator (not that any on the Left would dare call her that), Harris was a cop and an AG who routinely and unjustly would send black people to jail. Bloomberg’s stint lasted all of a half a movie’s run time and was essentially shot out of the sky after his first debate was over; Buttigieg was just the “look at me, I’m gay but somehow also the only person on here who would dare invoke the name of God” candidate; Gabbard was the only one I could even slightly tolerate because of her seemingly actual desire to bring our troops back and her hilarious attacks on Hillary, and the rest were totally forgettable.
Seriously, look up the Democrats who ran for president in 2020 and I can guarantee you straight up have not heard of at least a few of them, or forgotten that some of them ran.
My point is, despite the large number of candidates the Democrats boasted, time and time again, they all demonstrated a variety of reasons as to why they would lose to Trump by either a little or a lot. And now, the Democrats are stuck with a rapist with Dementia who refuses to leave the basement or answer any questions to the media because any unscripted engagement is 100% likely to result in him saying something else that demonstrates just how mentally unfit he is to run for president, let alone actually be president.
And this is the guy they say Trump is guaranteed to lose to? Again, even in their own polls, Trump has only GAINED support in key battleground states, even amidst a period of time in which one could argue Trump wasn’t at his best.
And we are still months away from the election. I have said this many times, but a lot can happen in between now and November of 2020. I have said this before the changing of the calendar took place, back when everyone was super confident Trump would easily be reelected, and I say this now, after the last few months of relative struggle. The events that will determine the results of the election have yet to occur. While one would think that the last few months have destroyed Trump’s chances, such a belief is rather short-sighted.
Even my own predictions on certain things have not panned out. I expected the Tara Reade story to be one that would haunt the Biden campaign. And while other things have obviously overshadowed that story because they were more important (namely, the pandemic), the fact that Biden is a rapist and hasn’t suffered the consequences in terms of support from women shows I was wrong with my predictions. Even the “you ain’t black” comment didn’t do much to hurt him with black people and he will still likely pull a majority of black voters to him.
So for anyone to believe the polls today, let alone a year ago, to be any indication of the results of the election is simply an exercise in madness. And even still, while I did say I wouldn’t bring this up again, I feel the need to mention that polls in 2016, specifically the day of the election, showed Clinton winning big and that obviously did not happen.
Not to mention the Cato Institute survey which showed people to be more reluctant to express their beliefs to other people because of fear of persecution, which could be one reason the polls say what they say: it’s entirely possible Trump supporters are either saying they “don’t know” who they will support or will say they will vote for Biden when they don’t actually plan to do so, and are just saying that to not be judged or punished by the pollsters.
The polls are wrong. Simple as that.

As much as the Left pretends there is no such thing as “cancel culture” (and we will see momentarily why it is that they say this), there really is no denying its existence. If anyone says something deemed “offensive” by people who have some amount of power – be it executive power or the power of pressure – that person runs the risk of being financially and professionally punished for sharing such opinions.
There were calls to have Houston Rockets’ GM Daryl Morey fired for sharing a pro-Hong Kong image on Twitter. Whenever a celebrity says something even remotely outside the lexicon allowed by the Left, that celebrity faces incredible pressure to take back what they said, and if they refuse, are threatened with financial repercussions, such as losing business deals. A good example of this is J.K. Rowling, who supposedly is “anti-trans” for sharing beliefs that do not align with the gender-dysphoric nutjobs, but she refuses to cave to the mob, and so, has lost business deals for publications for her popular Harry Potter books.
Now, J.K. Rowling has enough money that she doesn’t really have to worry about this. Even if no publisher will ever be willing to print another copy of her series, no book store – online or physical – be willing to sell her books, and no Hollywood studio ever be willing to work with her again or sell more digital or physical copies of the movies, essentially making it impossible for Rowling to profit off of her popular series, she has enough money to be entirely financially independent. She is, for all intents and purposes, uncancellable.
However, most people do not have Rowling money. Most people don’t have “screw the mob” money. Most people have to work five or more days a week, for 8 hours or more a day, in order to make a living. Most people need to be able to work and cannot afford to step out of line, saying or doing something that someone, be it an executive or a lowly intern, might find offensive, and risk losing their job as a result of it.
I’ve heard stories of people being practically interrogated by their employers for NOT sharing the black square on social media as part of a Black Lives Matter movement event. It’s no longer sufficient to simply be quiet about something, or not expressing one’s own views if they run contrary to the Leftist-approved narrative (and this explains why Leftists were making slogans like “silence is violence”). People are literally not allowed to be silent on an issue and must express the Leftist view, regardless of if they actually agree with it, otherwise they can be considered violent enemies.
There are also countless stories of people, such as media personalities, being fired or being threatened with termination for saying “all lives matter”, as though that is an extremely offensive term that is incorrect (though I do legitimately think the Left does not believe that all lives matter, and in fact, KNOW they don’t believe this, considering they are willing to kill babies in the womb and are willing to incite violence and terror against conservatives).
It’s no wonder, then, that Cato Institute found that nearly two-thirds of Americans (62%) believe they cannot safely express their views in fear of some form of retaliation.
According to Cato: “62% agree ‘the political climate these days prevents me from saying things I believe because others might find them offensive.’”
It’s more than just worrying people might find something offensive. If it stopped at that, nowhere near as many people would agree with this. It’s the fact that the “offended” party might retaliate in some form or another, often involving HR or the individual’s higher-ups, and get the individual punished for “offending” someone. And these punishments range anywhere from relatively mild suspensions to outright terminations from the companies.
And looking at things in terms of political demographics, one can see just who is more likely to be comfortable expressing their opinions and who is more likely to want to self-censor.
According to the poll, 58% of “strong liberals” believe they are free to speak their minds. In other words, uber-progressive, communist liberals believe they can say what they want without fear of repercussions (and this is one of the reasons why Leftists say there is no cancel culture – they hardly experience it). This stands in STARK contrast to everyone else, including even more moderate liberals.
According to the survey, 52% of liberals believe they have to self-censor, with 64% of moderates and 77% of conservatives agreeing with this notion.
Like I said, it no longer is enough to just be quiet on something. One must express the uber-Leftist view on everything. This, naturally, leads even more moderate liberals, those who might vote for people like Biden but don’t agree with the idea of defunding the police (because it is an asinine proposal) or destroying our economic system in order to fight a naturally-occurring event of climate change, to self-censor in fear of retaliation from people further Left.
And, of course, it’s not at all surprising to see conservatives being so willing to self-censor. I have mentioned this in various places, but the pillars of power in this country are largely owned by the Left. Conservatives stand in complete contrast to the Left, and so, are viewed as the natural enemies, and the out-of-power conservatives can only hope to not get in trouble by not expressing their beliefs.
Even objective, apolitical FACTS are cause for someone’s termination, such as in the case of Stephen Hsu, who was forced to resign from his position as vice president of research and innovation at Michigan State University after he shared a research paper (from the university itself) that found police were not more likely to shoot African-Americans than other races of people.
It’s a straight-up FACT that police are not more likely to shoot and kill African-Americans and last year, more unarmed white people were killed than unarmed black people. And yet, for sharing the findings of a research paper from the university itself and sharing facts about it, he was punished for sharing “scientific racism” and running contrary to the BLM movement and the Left.
Simply stating the fact that there are only two genders can get someone fired. Simply stating the fact that there is no man-made climate change can get someone fired or punished at some capacity, particularly for climate scientists. Simply stating that Trump is OUR PRESIDENT can get someone fired.
If you want any more proof that the Left does not operate using facts, there it is. Stating facts, if they run contrary to the Leftist narrative, has the possibility to get someone fired.
What’s more, the Cato Institute survey found that 50% of Strong Liberals support firing people who donate to Trump, while 36% of Strong Conservatives support firing people who donate to Biden.
I have a couple of things to say about this.
First, I am not surprised by that number from “strong liberals”. They are extremely intolerant and openly supporting Trump is seen as a crime against humanity itself, let alone making a donation to Trump.
Second, I do not see the Strong Conservatives as being equally or remotely as intolerant as the Strong Liberals, not simply because of the disparity in numbers; I see this as Strong Conservatives being willing to use cancel culture, a weapon designed by the Left, against the Left itself.
If a conservative can be made to suffer because of cancel culture, there is ZERO reason not to use it against the Left. As I have stated before, conservatives not using cancel culture against the Left is like someone refusing to use their gun in a duel, or like a side of a war refusing to fire against their attackers.
Think of cancel culture used by conservatives as a gun: we use it as a self-defense method.
Unlike a gun, however, I don’t exactly like cancel culture. Ideally, no one would be punished for sharing their beliefs – except maybe for communists, and we currently have in the law books the Communist Control Act of 1954, which outlawed the Communist Party of the United States and “prevents communists from holding office in labor organizations” according to MTSU. While many of the provisions of this act were eventually repealed, I think we should bring it back with full force to outlaw communist from serving in Congress and all types of offices.
Ideally, people should be free to express themselves without fear of retaliation, but we live far from an ideal world for a variety of reasons, chief among which is our very nature as human beings, which is evil.
So, since we do not live in an ideal world, we have to do certain things which are not exactly pretty. Such things include using cancel culture, which is largely awful, against the Left, since they have no trouble at all using it against us and it’s asinine not to fight back when one is at war if one wishes to not be defeated.
At any rate, we can clearly see the sort of damage cancel culture itself causes to people who simply want to live their normal lives, largely unplug from politics, and do honest work for a living – paying their bills and providing for themselves and their families.
People want to be able to go to their places of work without having to worry about what they say or do on their social media during their off-hours. People want to be able to freely express their support for either the Democrat or Republican presidential candidates, or simply abstain from engaging in these discussions, without being worried about being punished for it in terms of their finances or even their very employment.
I hope we can one day return to a time when people didn’t have to worry about this stuff. That time, however, will have to be after this cultural war of ours is over and the good guys have won.
One final note about this that I wish to quickly make is that this Cato poll really shines quite the light about other political polls. If so many people are afraid to be honest with their beliefs, exactly how many of those people do you think honestly answered a pollster who asked them who they plan to support in this election?
Just saying, this is another possible reason for Trump to supposedly be “behind” Biden in the polls, particularly by as many points as he supposedly is (apart from the fact that these pollsters always under-sample Republicans and conservatives).

It’s been nearly two entire months since the tragic killing of George Floyd, and Leftists in various places are still taking advantage of it by staging violent riots, so I think it is prudent for us to revisit just how bad of a political misstep this has been for the Left.
A little over a month ago, I wrote about an ABC News poll which showed 64% of Americans opposing the movement to “defund the police,” while 34% backed the idea. In a recent ABC News/Washington Post poll, the gap has somewhat closed a bit, but I think there is good explanation for it that does not support the idea that the Left’s ideology is gaining popularity.
You see, in that poll, “only 40 percent support cutting funding to police in order to spend more on social services, while 55 percent oppose such a move.”
Based on the numbers alone, you would think the communist movement to defund the police is gaining traction. After all, the number of people who support such a move went up by 6 percentage points while the number of people who oppose it went down 9 points. However, in every poll, how a surveyor phrases a question is extremely important (as well as the political demographics of the polls, which routinely underpoll Republicans).
Note exactly how ABC News reported the figures: 40% support defunding “in order to spend more on social services.” The way the Left can make their insane proposal of defunding the police appear to be less insane (which still is just as insane as ever) is by directing people’s attention away from the defunding of police and towards the increasing of funding for other social programs.
Many Americans have gotten used to supporting social programs, ashamedly so, and many would want to see an increase in funding for such social programs, if they actually help people (which they hardly do, largely depending on the program). It’s like a simple magic trick: a magician directing the audience to pay attention to what the magician wants them to pay attention to, getting them to look at one hand, while doing something else with the other hand to perform the trick.
It’s pure misdirection, but the point still remains, as people should realize, that the Left wants to defund the police, which means cutting off their entire funding and rendering them functionally inoperable.
That’s probably the best explanation I have about the difference in the numbers, as it’s still clear as day that people DON’T want to live in a society that is objectively less safe due to an absence in police.
The poll also talks about the popularity of Black Lives Matter (63%) – but even that number is a bit iffy, since there are people that make the distinction between the phrase and the Marxist organization, but there are those who view the phrase and the organization as inseparable – and the popularity of removing statues that commemorate Confederate officers (interestingly, 52% oppose removing the statues with 43% being in support), but the most important aspect of the poll, in my opinion, was the “defunding the police” aspect of it. And even with the b.s. spins they want to put, this is a losing issue for the Left, which is why Biden isn’t throwing his “full” support.
Of course, anyone with a brain would understand that he will support whatever his Leftist bosses will tell him to support, and his comment about “absolutely” being willing to defund the police demonstrates this.
At any rate, moving on to the next poll, we have a Fox News poll about how concerned Americans are about the breakdown of law and order in various cities and how serious of a problem this is. And suffice to say, the Left REALLY is stepping on a rake by supporting this lawlessness.
When asked, “How serious is the problem of a lack of law and order right now?”, 79% of respondents said that it was a serious problem, while only 17% said it wasn’t serious. In other words, 79% of respondents are concerned, to one extent or another, about the breakdown of law and order in many American (Democrat-run) cities.
This includes 78% of men, 80% of women, 80% of whites, 81% of blacks, 77% of Hispanics, 78% of non-whites, 73% of people under the age of 30, 75% of people between 30-44, 82% of those aged 45-64, and 82% of those 65 and older.
Breaking things down by income and political parties, 81% of those making under $50k a year are concerned and 78% of those making more than $50k a year agree. 75% of Democrats, 86% of Republicans and 74% of Independents are also concerned, which is fairly eye-opening. 73% of Democrat men, 75% of Democrat women, 84% of Republican men, and 88% of Republican women are concerned about lack of law and order.
Among political ideologies, 71% of “liberals”, 77% of moderates, 84% of moderate/conservative and 87% of conservatives are concerned. Of those who approve of Trump’s job as president, 85% are concerned about lawlessness and of those who disapprove of Trump’s job as president, 75% are also concerned. 79% of those in battleground states are also concerned about lack of law and order.
Finally, breaking things down by education, we find what white people with a college degree (77%) are a bit less concerned about this than whites without a degree (83%).
89% of white evangelicals are concerned, as well as 79% of those living in urban areas, 80% of those in sub-urban areas, and 80% of those in rural areas. 79% of parents are also concerned about this issue.
Now, out of all of those numbers, there are obviously quite a few that stand out.
For one, the general response from everybody was overwhelmingly in the direction of “people are concerned about there not being law and order here.” While I perhaps shouldn’t be so surprised that this is as much of an 80-20 issue as it is, it’s good to see the actual numbers on paper (or my computer screen) to understand how badly the Left chose the wrong side on this issue.
People want to be safe, and taking away the ability of police officers to do anything jeopardizes that safety. Do you want to know why there have been record numbers of gun sales in recent time? Precisely because of this. And while the media will lie and claim that the record number of gun sales is responsible for an uptick in crime, anyone with half a brain can tell that the uptick started WELL before people started rushing to get guns. Or at least, it somewhat precedes it. Law-abiding citizens legally purchasing firearms are NOT the ones SETTING BUILDINGS ON FIRE, STAGING AUTONOMOUS ZONES AND RULING LIKE MINIATURE WARLORDS.
When police funding is threatened, particularly to the extent that it is – that they would be rendered totally ineffective to stop crime – it becomes people’s jobs to defend themselves because no one else will do it. People were buying guns in response to the anarchy and chaos of the riots, in an attempt to defend themselves, their families and their property should these terrorists find their way to their doorsteps (such as the McCloskey’s, who are being punished for demonstrating their willingness to defend their homes from people who broke into their community).
When the Left threatens police funding, they turn the country into the Wild West. People HAVE to have some assurance of their safety, so they seek out weapons with which to defend themselves.
Like I said, it’s really not surprising at all that this is so much of an 80-20 issue, with the 20 being the hardcore Left and people who actively participate in these acts of terrorism, while the 80% are sane, rational individuals who do not wish to live in an American Somalia.
That 71% if liberals, another stand-out figure, also agree is quite telling.
Virtually EVERYONE is sick and tired of a lack of law and order, which is probably a good part of the reason as to why Trump is beginning to send the Feds in even more force in crime-riddled cities.
While the Left and the fake news media will cry about this being Nazi Germany and compare the Federal agents to Nazi Stormtroopers (like the drunkard occupying the seat of House Speaker recently did), the numbers show that the VAST majority of people are sick of this nonsense and want an end to it.
The Democrats cannot win running on anarchy, but they will seemingly do their darndest to do it, even while trying to gaslight people and lie to them, misdirecting them as to what their true intentions are.
People want to be safe. If Trump can prove that he can provide that, he will win in an absolute landslide.

We have talked plenty about the demonization of police officers as a whole, but have hardly gone deep into those demonizations. White cops get automatically called racists just because of their skin color (and the people calling them such things do not realize the irony in their actions), and non-white cops, be they black or Latino, etc., essentially get called traitors to their race for being police officers.
The Leftist mentality is a sick and depraved one, full of nonsense and error that does not reflect reality in the least. To the Left, the police are a symbol of oppression and tyranny, built specifically for those purposes, when in reality, they are there to protect and serve (as if that slogan on the side of police cars wasn’t enough to tip people off).
Granted, not all of them manage to accomplish that, considering officers like Chauvin, the one who killed George Floyd, had 17 complaints levied against him for use of excessive force. Sometimes, a police officer does more to hurt than help, but the purpose of the police, and actions of the overwhelming majority of the police, is/are to the benefit, not the detriment, of people.
But the Left sees them as nothing but monsters, which is why they call the white cops “racists” automatically, not knowing who they are, what they believe, what they’ve done, where they come from, etc., and call the non-white cops “race traitors”, also not knowing their stories.
Well, one black cop held an interview with KGW8 recently to talk about the protests happening in Portland day after day and night after night (not that the media is covering these protests because that does a disservice to the Left and I think the media has figured this out, finally). Officer Jakhary Jackson was interviewed in a press conference about being on the frontlines at the Portland protests.
The interview (video below) was rather long at roughly half an hour, so I won’t cover everything that was said, just the most important parts, at least in my opinion.
One of the things Officer Jackson said was: “I got to see folks who really do want to see change like the rest of us that have been impacted by racism. And then I got to see those people get faded out by people that have no idea what racism is all about. Never experienced racism. They don’t even know that the tactics that they are using are the same tactics that were used against my people.”
He added: “Coming from someone who graduated from PSU with a history degree, it’s actually frightening… They say if you don’t know your history, you’re doomed to repeat it. And watching people do that to other people just because of what they’ve decided to do with their life.”
Speaking more about the earlier thing he said, about people that were actually impacted by racism get faded out by those who have no idea what racism is all about, Officer Jackson provided a very good and crucial example of the sort of idiotic “white knighting” white liberals do for black people when no one asked them to do anything of the sort.
The example is that, often times, he, as a black officer, is approached by black people and asked his opinion of the George Floyd killing or some other issue relating to race and the police. But every time he attempts to engage in conversation with people of color, and seemingly, this ONLY happens when minorities talk to him, a white liberal protester will come in and shout, saying “F the police. Don’t talk to him,” or something akin to that.
Seemingly, this is such a frequent occurrence that Officer Jackson can tell when it’s coming. Recently, Officer Jackson explains, a young black girl came up to him to ask him why he wouldn’t talk to the protesters, and as he began to explain that every time he tried doing so, he would get cut off by some white protester, as if on cue, a white protester came in and interrupted him. Jackson said: “right when I said that, this white girl pops right in front of her,” cutting him off from conversating with her. The black girl was amazed that it happened, saying: “He just said that was going to happen.” Jackson then said: “I told you,” to the girl.
Jackson then tried talking to the white girl who had interrupted his conversation with the black girl, saying: “I’ve been called the N-word. She’s been called the N-word. Why are you talking to me this way? Why do you feel that she can’t speak for herself to me? Why is it that you feel you need to speak for her when we’re having a conversation?” The white girl seemingly just replied: “Someone told me to do it.”
Peculiar. Considering I believe Democrat orgs are in charge of organizing these protests (I mean apart from BLM and Antifa), and have seen videos of Leftists recruiting people (bribing them) to participate in these protests or just do something to someone, I wouldn’t be surprised if that “someone” who instructed her to interrupt the conversation was a member of a Leftist organization.
The reason I theorize this is because we all know Leftists hate the truth, hate facts and hate knowledge. If the black girl had a real heart-to-heart conversation with the black officer, she might reevaluate certain things and actually grow in her understanding of the world. The Left can’t afford this, what they view as an atrocity – a black person leaving the Democrat slave plantation of thought – so they have random white people interrupt the conversation (or will do it themselves) to keep the free exchanging of thoughts from happening.
If the officers are allowed to explain things from their side, understanding might occur from some protesters, and the Left can’t afford that to happen if they want their pathetic little “revolution” to succeed, so they keep it from happening in a multitude of ways.
In any case, moving on from my little theory (of which I have little evidence to outright prove), Officer Jackson went on to describe other kinds of experiences he has had in dealing with protestors, many of which are not quite as mild as conversations being interrupted.
“I had taken an explosive, I had been hit with a full beer can, a rock in my chest, frozen water bottle had hit me.” Clearly, he has seen and experienced a lot of hatred just because of his desire to protect and serve his community – a community which would be in total shambles without a police presence.
Thankfully, not everything he shared was quite so grim, as he also noted that, after a protest, he met two young black men who were cleaning up the street (the Left always leaves litter and garbage on the streets in their protests, almost as if the idea that they care for the environment is total crap). “I was so moved by that and so impressed,” Officer Jackson said, that he went over to them to shake their hands.
Then, Officer Jackson said something pretty noteworthy. When asked by an interviewer about “some of the hateful and racist things” he and other minority officers have had to endure during the protests, Jackson said: “It says something when you’re at a Black Lives Matter protest; you have more minorities on the police side than you have in a violent crowd. And you have white people screaming at black officers ‘you have the biggest nose I’ve ever seen.’ You hear these things and you go ‘Are these people, are they going to say something to this person?’ No.”
“And that’s just one example. Having people tell you what to do with your life, that you need to quit your job, that you’re hurting your community but they’re not even a part of the community. Once again, you as a privileged white person telling someone of color what to do with their life.” The interviewer suggested that such a thing was “hypocrisy” from the protesters and Jackson “absolutely” agreed.
I, for one, am not at all surprised to see Leftists being racist. Anti-white racism (which we’ll get to in a minute) is not only allowed, but celebrated and encouraged, if the incident with Nick Cannon is any indication, but even anti-black racism, if thrown at acceptable targets, is also not only allowed, but celebrated and encouraged.
Black police officers get called traitors to their race, just like black conservatives do. Hell, Joe freakin’ Biden said that if you are black and you are on the fence about whether you support him or Trump, “you ain’t black.” The jackass had the audacity to tell this to a BLACK radio show host, Charlamagne Tha God, who just ignored that statement basically or took no offense to it at all, probably because he’s a Leftist and he intends to vote for Biden anyway.
The Left will claim they aren’t racists while DM’ing black conservatives on Twitter and calling them the N-word. The Left will claim they support women and hate sexists while passing around rumors about Hope Hicks, a female Trump campaign staffer, sleeping around with multiple male Trump campaign staffers, making jokes about her being “passed around” like a hake sack in a college dorm room.
The same Left that kept black people slaves and FOUGHT to keep them as such today attack black people who leave the Democrat plantation of thought or who just want to serve their communities by being police officers.
The ONLY difference between today’s Left and the Left of the 19th and 20th centuries is that today’s Leftists are also anti-white. They are still every bit anti-black that they always have been, but they pretend to be pro-black and pro-minority. In reality, they see minorities as property that exists solely to get them elected.
Speaking of anti-white rhetoric, the Left definitely employs it against police officers. Unsurprisingly, Officer Jackson has also defended white police officers, knowing the sorts of things that they have to go through on the regular (things that snowflake Leftists would never dare to do once, let alone as a job).
Officer Jackson explains that, whenever someone uses the N-word against him, he has seen white officers jump in to defend him against such a person. Jackson also notes that he has witnessed these white officers try to save black residents in the city from dangerous situations:
“When you’re standing on the line and they’re getting called those names and they’re being accused of being racist when you’ve seen those officers helping people of color, getting blood on them trying to rescue someone who has been shot – gang violence, domestic violence – and you see them and they’re truly trying to help save someone’s life and they turn around and are called a racist by people that have never seen anything like that, that have never had to put themselves out there. It’s disgusting.”
The Left foolishly believes that entire police departments can be eliminated and we would only see improvement in this country in terms of racial equality and crime. They believe all you need to take care of and diffuse a potentially dangerous situation is an unarmed government worker trying to talk people out of being evil like they’re a cartoon character.
Reality, as always, is far different from what the Left perceives it to be. Cops aren’t intended for “tyranny” or “oppression.” They don’t exist to “keep black folk down.” They exist to protect and serve their communities, and statistically, many black communities need plenty of policing due to the violence present there (largely due to the Left’s economic policies that hurt people from the bottom-up).
I remember in my first year of high school in South Florida seeing police officers a lot of the time, not because the kids were overwhelmingly black (the school was located in the outskirts of Little Haiti), but because there were fights that happened just about every single day. And not small or silly fights that at most got people sent to the principal’s office either. I mean fights that were big and bad enough that cops needed to come in to separate and, in some cases, detain the kids and put them in handcuffs and in the back of the squad cars.
Again, the reason wasn’t because the kids were black or because the cops are racist, but because there were situations where the cops NEEDED to be there.
Just as cops are NEEDED in many places today, especially in the places run by Democrats (if the WaPo chart showing crime in a number of cities is any indication).
I pray for Officer Jackson’s safety (and the safety of the other officers as well) as the city of Portland is run by a dangerous and unstable clown.

Racism courses through the blood of Leftists, so it is not at all surprising to see them do something like what I’m about to show you.
The National Museum of African-American History & Culture recently released an article, and more specifically, a graphic, that attributes positive things to “whiteness” and “white culture”, while insinuating that said positive things are actually bad because they are attributed to “whiteness” and “white culture.”
Let me show you what I mean.
In the graphic, they have several items which are generally positive things, but in the context that the museum is using them (and despite what the name might suggest, the graphic itself was created by a white woman), they are bad things because they apparently belong to white people and white culture alone (all-the-while they insist white people don’t have culture).
Let’s go over these items.
First, there’s the section of “Rugged Individualism”:
The Left, unsurprisingly, insists that individualism and personal independence are bad things, and because they are intolerant racists, they have to attribute these things to white people, even though ALL RACES strive for independence and individualism. You would think, having fought to keep their slaves, the Left would realize that even black people value independence and individualism, wanting to be self-reliant and financially independent.
Next, there’s the “Family Structure” section, which unsurprisingly, attacks the nuclear family (because the nuclear family is the basis for Western civilization and destroying it means destroying the West):
I already mentioned the point of attacking the nuclear family, so let’s move to the other points here. The reason for the husband being the breadwinner and head of household and the wife being the homemaker and subordinate to the husband is because that is the way God intended the family structure to be.
Ephesians 5:22-33 says: “Wives, submit to you own husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife even as Christ is the head of the church, his body, and is himself its Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit in everything to their husbands.
Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, so that he might present the church to himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish. In the same way husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ does the church, because we are members of his body. ‘Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.’ This mystery is profound, and I am saying that it refers to Christ and the church. However, let each one of you love his wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband.”
And 1 Timothy 5:8 says: “But if anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for members of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.”
Due to this, and the fact that America is a Judeo-Christian country, the godly family structure should be that the husband is the head of the household, provides for his family, and the wife is the homemaker, submitting to her husband, and taking care of the children, that they might grow into faithful followers of Christ themselves.
These are not strictly “white” things, especially considering this is from a people who were IN THE MIDDLE EAST. The Left loves making the assertion that Jesus wasn’t white, so if He wasn’t white, wouldn’t it also follow that His followers, like Paul, weren’t exactly white either?
It simply makes no sense to attribute this as a “white” thing, considering people of all races do something similar.
And as far as the kids having their own bedrooms, I don’t know how that’s a white thing either. Some families are wealthy enough and small enough to be able to do that. Some are not as wealthy and have bigger families, so the kids have to share rooms. It’s not a white thing.
Next is, hilariously, attributing the “Scientific Method”, or the process by which we discover facts, as a white thing:
Is that to insinuate black people don’t think right? That black people, or Hispanics, or Asians, or Native Americans, or anyone who isn’t white doesn’t think objectively or rationally, going from a logical point A to point B?
And this is supposed to make me believe Leftists AREN’T the racist ones? How is an argument that ONLY white people think rationally an argument AGAINST white people and not against everyone else? I get that white liberals don’t think rationally, but that has more to do with political ideology than race.
“Cause and effect relationships” are strictly a white thing? You mean to tell me that white people see, let’s say, a ball falling on the ground, attribute that action to gravity as the cause, and other races think “AHH, BLACK MAGIC! THAT BALL WAS IN THE AIR AND THEN IT WAS ON THE GROUND! HOW DOES ONE EXPLAIN THAT?!”? How do you come away making such a blatantly racist argument that only white people think rationally and think to yourself that you’ve stuck it to white people or are defending non-whites?
Anyway, moving on to the other non-sensical and racist bullcrap from these neo-Nazis.
The section of “Protestant Work Ethic.” There technically is a section before that about “History”, but all it said is that it’s “based on Northern European immigrants’ experience” in the U.S., has a “heavy” focus on the U.K. and has a primacy of Western and Judeo-Christian tradition, which are fairly obvious, so I can’t really make arguments against that. It’s just the history of the country, and while I get that the Left hates it, it has nothing really to do with whiteness.
The Left is coming at this one with a mentality of “structural racism”, but this still is nothing but loser talk. Of course hard work is the key to success. Ever head of a successful couch potato? Even if you foolishly believe that being a CEO takes zero effort to do, one has to work hard to just get to that point in the first place. No matter how long I wait, Microsoft isn’t going to name me their CEO if I’m just sitting on my couch (then again, I’m Latino and we don’t think rationally, apparently, so maybe it will happen!).
“Work before play.” I personally had to learn this one the hard way because yes, even in Latin American countries with THE VAST MAJORITY OF THE POPULATION BEING LATINO, I have to do my work before I get to play, else I will have less time to finish my work, it gets rushed, and it gets sloppy. This isn’t a white thing. It’s a “not a total lazy piece of crap” thing.
The final point is also fairly obvious. You have to work hard to meet your goals, and while SOMETIMES, there are things that obstruct you despite your hard work (systemic racism isn’t a thing, so no, that’s not one of those obstructions), most of the time, it’s up to an individual to determine how successful they will be in doing anything. Matter of fact, in understanding this, plenty of people are conservatives because we KNOW that the government more often than not gets in people’s way. But no matter what, it’s not exactly a white thing.
Next, there is the “Status, Power & Authority” section. Like the last one, there technically was another one before this one, but I’m pressed for space and time in this article and want to prioritize this one. The previous one was similar to “History”, it was “Religion”, and basically the same points are made, though one of them was “no tolerance” for straying from a “single god concept”, and I will just say that there is just a single God, so it’s not a white thing. Muslims believe in a single god and are intolerant of deviation from that belief.
This more accurately describes white liberals than white people as a whole. To them, “your job is who you are” because when they have a doctorate or are, for example, epidemiologists, they define themselves as such and operate with smugness about it.
“Respect authority” is not just a white thing either. The Chinese Communist Party demands people respect their authority. Black parents demand their children respect their authority. Latino parents do the same (really, all parents do, but seemingly, white liberal parents seem to be the ones who will allow their children to walk all over them).
The final point is an obvious jab at capitalism, though let’s not pretend communists don’t do the same. The Obamas bought a house in Martha’s Vineyard as they, for more than a decade, have insisted that anthropogenic climate change would make such places completely uninhabitable for humans. They also love to flaunt their wealth, buying expensive suits and dresses. So this also isn’t a white thing specifically.
Next, I will combine two sections, “Future Orientation” and “Time” since they both say basically the same:
Right, because only white people have ever planned for the future. If that were the case, there would only have ever been one Christian Crusade because Muslims (and people in the Middle East in general) wouldn’t be ale to plan for the future (or think rationally, according to these people).
“Delayed gratification” isn’t a white thing either, it’s a smart thing. White liberals expect instant gratification for everything. All liberals do, really. It’s also a bit more of a millennial thing than anything else.
“Progress is always best.” Not in the commie context, but in the actual context of improvement. Apparently, non-whites think it’s best to sit in one spot forever and ever, never improving. Again, the Left fought to keep their slaves because the slaves wanted to be free. If black people didn’t believe that progress is always best and wanted to stay in one place forever without improvement, they wouldn’t have wanted freedom from the Left’s bondage.
“’Tomorrow will be better’”. Apparently, optimism is a white thing.
Now, as this article is pretty long and I still have a few points to go over, I will just mention one “point” in each subsequent section.
“Aesthetics”: “Man’s attractiveness based on economic status, power, intellect.”
I’ve said this plenty of times, but women find financially independent, strong and smart men attractive. It’s not a white thing.
“Holidays”: “Based on white history & male leaders.”
Yeah, white history holidays like Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
“Justice”: “Intent counts.”
Apparently not when it’s Hillary Clinton, you know, a white woman of immense privilege?
“Competition”: “Must always ‘do something’ about a situation.”
You mean to tell me that non-whites don’t “do something” about a situation? So the riots and the protests about George Floyd just didn’t happen because black people don’t “do something” about a situation?
“Communication”: “’The King’s English’ rules.”
Yeah, it’s so white to speak proper English. Actually, that section has another “point” I want to discuss: “Be polite.” Apparently, politeness and not being rude is strictly a white thing.
Black people and general non-white people are rude to others. How is this a statement in FAVOR of non-whites?
In any case, there are more hilarious “points” in the graphic, but this article is plenty long and you get the point.
Jim Crow is alive and well in the Democrat Party.

I have often spoken to some extent or another about my own experiences having lived in socialist Argentina. I didn’t live there for too long (thank God), but I remember enough to know what it’s like to live under socialism, which is why I so adamantly and fervently speak out against the evil ideology.
Cuba is another country ravaged by communism and that is where the man I will speak about today, Maximo Alvarez, came from.
Cuba is straight-up communist and has been under a communist regime for the past 60 years. It wasn’t exactly great before, mind you, but communism has gripped the country and absolutely zero progress has been made in that country ever since, both in terms of politics and in terms of technology, etc. For crying out loud, the people still have to drive in the same cars our parents and grandparents drove back in the 1950s and 1960s!
Cuba is a communist country and the people that live in it, when they get the chance to get out, will adamantly speak against communism, having learned what it is, similarly to how people leaving Venezuela will often speak against socialism. Experience is everything, and once you experience communism, you understand how abhorrently oppressive it is.
The people clamoring for the ideology today are either people who have never actually experienced living under it, or are people who will benefit tremendously from it because they get to be the ones in total power. However, once people experience socialism/communism, their eyes are opened to the truth of how horrible it is and often times will want to do away with it, but cannot because communists disarm the populace long before they can rise up.
When the communist revolution in Cuba happened, according to Maximo Alvarez, a lot of people “swallowed the pill,” meaning that they believed each and every one of the promises made by Castro and the communists that were all lies.
But before we get to that, let me tell you some of what Alvarez shared about himself in this speech. During the round table discussion, Alvarez noted that in 1961, as a 13-year-old, Alvarez arrived to the States by himself because his parents, particularly his father, wanted a better life for him and his brother (who had been sent to Spain some time earlier than Alvarez).
In his speech, Alvarez generally spoke about how great this country is, noting that “everybody in the world wants to come over here. Nobody’s ever forced to come over here. We come over here, in my case because my parents chose that I would not be indoctrinated by the communist country, by the totalitarian country, by the totalitarian regime. They don’t educate children.”
And he is absolutely correct. Those who come here come here because they WANT to come here. People CHOOSE to come to the States because they want a better life for themselves. This is the only place in the world that can provide that for them.
And with regards to the communists indoctrinating children, that is also correct. For crying out loud, we are seeing it even here, in college campuses! Remember, young people tend to be rather patriotic until they go off to college, at which point the percentage of patriotic young people practically falls off a cliff. Our universities are not places of higher education, but rather, higher indoctrination of Marxist ideology.
At any rate, Alvarez continued, noting that Castro made plenty of promises to people, and even tried hiding the fact that he was a communist, until he actually got to power. “I remember vividly all the promises that a guy named Castro gave, and how 99% of the people swallowed the pill. It took many years later, after I read somebody named Saul Alinksy, that I realized that all those people were nothing but useful idiots.”
Alinsky, for those who don’t know, was an American communist famous for quotes such as: “Control healthcare and you control the people,” and “They have the guns and therefore we are for peace and for reformation through the ballot. When we have the guns then it will be through the bullet.”
Communism is not a logical or rational ideology. It is an evil ideology that promises paradise on earth, and in doing so, grip the hearts of plenty of people (because who wouldn’t want to live in paradise, especially if you don’t believe in Heaven?) and through emotions, uses such idiotic people to achieve its ends. The people leading such communist revolutions (and there always has to be a revolution for it to happen) are the ones who benefit, but particularly the main guy who leads the revolution.
Today, we see such useful idiots like people supporting BLM, Antifa, etc. and even the people belonging to those groups themselves. The useful idiots will destroy statues, attack people verbally and/or physically, and demand systemic change away from capitalism, which they foolishly view as evil, and towards communism, which they foolishly view as good. When the dust settles and the system is actually changed to communism, however, such useful idiots are usually the first ones to be eliminated.
Alvarez continued by pointing out that Castro fooled people into believing he wasn’t actually a communist by posing as a Catholic (does that not remind you of a certain New York governor, a certain Speaker of the House and a certain Senator from Vermont, who uses Judaism to hide his communism?) and only revealed his communism once he was in power.
“I remember Castro while in the mountains being interviewed and asked if he was a communist. He went crazy. ‘How dare you’, he says… [a] Roman Catholic. Educated by the Jesuits, he was. ‘How dare you! We even have a priest in the mountains.’”
Often times, communists hide the fact that they are communists until they feel that it’s not necessary to do so any longer.
Much of this, basically all of it, we are seeing happen in this country. The useful idiots, the empty promises of “free education”, “free healthcare”, “free land”, the communists hiding that they are communists, etc.
This is why he was so adamant about speaking out on this, because he is seeing the same thing happen here as he saw in Cuba in the 1950s and 60s.
“My God, no freedom. But [Castro] never said that until after he was in power, got rid of all the police, got rid of all the military – been there for the last 60 years and counting. And he destroyed each and every one who helped him. The Catholic church, everybody.”
One of the many interesting things he said in his speech was his description of his father, who was very smart, fled Spain when it was going through its own communist revolution, went to Cuba and could tell right away that Castro was a communist, even when he was pretending he wasn’t.
There were two aspects that stood out to me about how Maximo described his father. One was that the guy could have enjoyed the fruits of his labor, having owned golf courses, but gave it up to afford his family a better life in a better place that wouldn’t be destroyed by communism. Maximo notes that Trump is “exactly the same,” a guy who had it made, could have enjoyed the fruits of his labor, but decided to sacrifice it for something bigger than himself.
And this is an aspect a lot of people I feel do not appreciate about Trump. They will say that he is an egomaniac, selfish, narcissist, etc., but his actions do not reflect such a profile. The guy, like I said, had it made. His family was set for as long as they had money and a means to earn more of it. Generations of Trumps would have been just fine, financially, by Donald Trump not running for President and just remaining a real estate mogul, owning multiple high-end buildings, golf courses, etc. and doing whatever else he could to make more money.
He had ZERO obligation to do any of the things he has been doing for the past four years. He had no obligation at all to run for POTUS. But he chose to forsake such a life of extreme luxury that even escapes a president in order to do something for the country that he loves. He wanted to be president, not in order to gain anything, because in reality, he only stands to lose by doing so, but in order to Make America Great Again.
Choosing to run for president has all but ruined everything Trump had been building for his whole life. He is loved by many, yes, but he is also hated by many, when before, that wasn’t the case. He was loved both by Democrats, having donated to them and championed their causes (to some extent, particularly as they were not openly as radical back then as they are now) and loved by Republicans, having also donated to some of them and being the embodiment of a Republican’s dream in this country.
In choosing to become president, he has gotten roughly half the country to hate him, believing that he is a racist and all these other things that he is definitely not, and has jeopardized his family’s ability to make money by the vitriol that communists have for his very name and brand, and he, himself, only loses money by being president, not taking a salary for his work.
If there ever was anyone who did not have to be president and only stood to lose by becoming president, it’s Donald Trump, and yet, he forsook that life of luxury just to be able to save a country he loved and he viewed as worth saving. In his position, I don’t know if I would have done the same. Not to say I don’t love this country, but that is to say that I don’t know or think I would have made so many sacrifices for the mere chance of saving the country. Keep in mind, his reputation was being tarnished just by him RUNNING for office, let alone obtaining it. Had he lost, he likely would be ruined by now, and once he leaves office, the Left will most likely come after him with everything they’ve got and he will no longer have a presidential immunity to being indicted.
Maximo Alvarez loves Trump because that aspect is a lot like his father: someone willing to take great chance, at their own peril, for something bigger than themselves.
The other thing that Alvarez noted about his father that also stood out to me was something he once told to Maximo: “Don’t lose this place because you’re never going to be as lucky as me. Because if you lose this place, you have no place to go.”
That, to me, struck me as extremely Reagan-esque because those words are almost verbatim what Reagan once said: “If we lose freedom here, there is no place to escape to. This is the last stand on Earth.”
Maximo’s father likely loved Reagan, as Maximo loves Trump. The two presidents are people who value this country for its freedoms and know that we must fight to preserve them. Granted, I think Trump mostly saw America in economic shambles and wanted to make it great again based on that, but I think Trump’s 2020 message is, or at least, it should be, about saving America not from economic turbulence but from the ideological evil that is communism.
The Left has made itself known to all about who they are. They want communism and they want it now. They will do whatever it takes to get what they want. Trump, I think, understands that he is a buffer for America against such communism. He stands practically all alone against communism and I think he needs to accentuate that fact in his campaigning.
Alvarez knows what it’s like to live under communism and is seeing Americans spewing the same bullcrap that communists spewed in Cuba. My own family also mentions that the things people like Bernie Sanders and other communists are promising were promises that were made to Argentinians and are promises that are still being made to them, despite the fact that socialism is the law of the land.
What we are seeing in America today is what people living in socialism and communism saw decades prior. We know what socialism and communism is and does. It’s a regressive, highly oppressive regime that destroys people’s souls, jails them for being out of line with the regime’s beliefs, and is overall a cancer on this earth. And we are seeing useful idiots on TikTok, Twitter, other social media and in real life altogether espousing beliefs they know nothing about, believing communism lifts people up when in reality, it brings people down.
America must never be allowed to fall to communism, because if it does, there is no place else on earth to go to. I just hope people realize how important our freedom is before it is taken away from us.

Democrat State Representative Vernon Jones probably doesn’t belong in the Democrat Party – and this is a good thing, actually. No sane person, no one who loves life and respects ALL people would ever consider joining the Democrat Party or even voting for the Democrat Party.
Rep. Jones said last week “If the Democrats are looking to eradicate every thing with a “racist history”, when will my party confront and apologize for its own?
If racist relics of the past must come down, shouldn’t we start with the Democrat Party?”
And this is why some of us have come to the realization that Liberalism must be, indeed, a mental disorder. It’s irrational to hate racism and vote Democrat. You cannot be thinking straight if you hate racism and support Democrats - it's contradictory. It's irrational. Anyone who has any knowledge whatsoever of the history of the Democrat Party knows with 100% certainty that the Democrat Party IS the party of RACISM.
Just as a reminder, let me summarize quickly a little bit of the Democrat Party’s racist history. The Democrat Party was so racist in the 19th Century that we needed to found another party, one that would once and for all end the travesty that was slavery.
You see, the Republican Party was founded in 1854 with the specific objective to abolish slavery. Slavery had been a cause of friction with the racists in America and even with the King of England well before the American colonies signed the Declaration of Independence on July 4th 1776. There had been efforts to eliminate slavery for a long time both in the UK and in the colonies unsuccessfully, but by the Grace of God the signing of the Declaration of Independence paved the way to abolish slavery later on in our young Republic for this reason: “ALL men are Created equal” it reads…all men, not just white men. All men…are created equal. This phrase was included by anti-slavery patriots, who were mostly Christians, and to whom slavery was a sin against people and against God.
When the Republicans gained power in the North they abolished slavery, but the Democrat South decided to secede and formed the Confederacy. It’s the Democrats who own the Confederate Flag. It represents THEM. They chose to go to war JUST so they could keep their slaves.
It was a Republican President - President Lincoln - who led the war against the Democrat South and when they finally lost the Civil War, Republicans won gubernatorial elections in the South consistently because the Black population voted overwhelmingly for Republican candidates each and every time.
Losing power in the South was not something the Democrats were just going to take lightly and without a fight. So what did they do? They founded the KKK. After the massacre of Black people that the KKK embarked on, Blacks in the South began voting Democrat again – I suppose because being alive and poor is better than being killed by the Democrats.
Once the Democrats regained power in the South, they implemented Segregation. They defunded Public Schools and made sure to keep Black Americans segregated from white Americans.
I know what you're going to say: "that's old news! Who cares?" Well, racism runs in Democrats blood even today!
Joe Biden has a history of racism, beginning with his opposing busing to achieve desegregation in the 1970s. He also wrote the 1994 Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act, which is responsible for the mass incarceration of black people ever since it was passed. And let’s not forget his most recent comment “you ain’t black” if you don’t vote for him.
Also worth pointing out is the brutal Black-on-black crime that takes place daily in Chicago, a city run by Democrats since 1931! Why is this happening, if Democrats love Black people as much as they say they do? Why is it that minorities in Democrat-run cities or states never seem to make progress?
Chicago isn't the only Democrat-run city where these things are happening. My colleague wrote a couple of articles recently citing the recent shooting of black people by black people in other Democrat-run cities such as NYC, Atlanta and others. In this case, the victims are black kids.
And who can forget Hillary and Bill Clinton's best buddy and mentor, the late Senator and former KKK Kleagle Robert Byrd?. How does someone call this KKK Recruiter a mentor and run for office in the 21st Century? I don't know how, but I know who did it: Hillary Clinton.
It seems to me that everything Democrats run has this sort of racist tendencies. Why would that be?
Well, the only possible explanation is that it’s the Democrats who are racist. Show me a city or a state or any organization (Big Tech?) run by Democrats and I’ll show you a racist system!
Big Tech is another example – run by Liberals, for decades telling us they're “an equal opportunity employer” and that they have “diversity and inclusion” programs. You would think that after decades of “leadership” in this area they’d have something to show for it. But they don’t. Never mind that the only thing they need is a decisive CEO to give the instruction and minorities should be perfectly represented at all levels of the organization.
Do you know what they do to minorities in Big Tech? They SEGREGATE them. Yes, you’ve read correctly. They don't call it "segregation", of course (they have great marketing groups that wouldn't allow them to be so honest!), but they form these “minority groups” (Women’s group, Latinos group, Blacks groups, Gay and Lesbian groups and so on) and they put them in different conference rooms every so often to discuss why they don’t seem to make enough progress in their careers and “representation” at the top levels of these companies. "What the heck is wrong with us"? they're forced to ponder. But do you know what white males do in the meantime? They network and work on their next promotion.
There’s nothing wrong with these minorities. There’s everything wrong with the Democrat leaders that encourage minorities to waste their time whining and complaining (and therefore growing depressed) rather than invest it in networking and fighting for their own careers where it matters: at the top.
Racism is owned by the democrats, my friends. They own every bit of it. Not to say there aren’t Republicans who are racist. But the foundations of racism are found within the DNC. So if Black Americans want reparations, I suggest they sue the DNC.

While I wrote an article similar to this one yesterday, I am compelled to write a sort of “sequel” article to it, considering what sort of information I will be sharing here. As noted in the headline, 16 children have been shot, some of whom have been killed, amid a rise in violence following the unjust killing of George Floyd.
The Left loves to sow discord and chaos and that is exactly what we are seeing, as people see that their violence is being encouraged by the Leftist media, and so, join mobs to outright run insurgencies in many places (the Wendy’s that I talked about in the last article was a sort of CHAZ/CHOP zone) and the punitive mayors that agree with the discord and violence simply roll over and allow these dangerous terrorists to do whatever it is that they please.
Unsurprisingly, this leaves everyone in those communities entirely unsafe and at risk of death, especially considering the anti-police rhetoric and actions taken by many of the Leftists in these cities.
Let’s look at five distinct cities in which children have been shot, with some of them killed. We will look at the cities of Atlanta, New York City, Philadelphia, Seattle, and Washington D.C. We easily could run up the numbers a bit more by looking at Chicago alone, and you would have at least 20 children shot over the past couple of months, but let’s just look at these other cities, since Chicago is usually extremely dangerous anyway (and because I don’t want to make the article too long, which adding Chicago’s list of minor fatalities would do).
In Atlanta, as I wrote yesterday, we find the killing of Secoriea Turner, who was just 8-years-old, and was shot and killed by insurgents who took over the burned-down Wendy’s. Following this horrible death, Mayor Keisha Bottoms ordered the insurgency shut down, declaring it to be “over.” “The discussions have ended,” she declared.
Won’t spend too long on this one since I already wrote an entire article on it, but the tragedy is still no less difficult to handle. Deranged animals opened fire on a car that made the wrong turn and a child’s life was lost. Whatever violence these people might accuse police of doing, it PALES in comparison to something as barbaric as this. How, then, can anyone continue to tell me that the police are the problem?
And that’s a sub-topic I will get to in a moment.
Moving on, let’s talk about New York City, and be prepared, because we have a LOT of people to go over from this city alone.
First, an unidentified 7-year-old who was wounded on June 25 after some teens began fighting. The child was not seemingly the intended target and is, thankfully, expected to survive.
Next, an 11-year-old named Treshawn. Treshawn was shot during a drive-by on June 30th while playing outside his home in Flatbush. He was not the intended target and thankfully was only injured in the leg, but there is still no excuse for this barbarism. Treshawn’s grandfather told ABC 7: “They drive fast and shoot, man, that’s all the little babies. They’re little kids, nobody big out here.”
An unidentified 14-year-old was shot in the neck and back in Queens this past Monday and is in the hospital in critical condition.
An unidentified 15-year-old was shot in the chest on June 5th in East Harlem. It’s worth noting that on this day, the city of New York saw 23 shootings, resulting in 43 victims and 9 casualties in a 9-hour time span.
An unidentified 15-year-old was shot at a graduation party in the Bronx on June 12. Thankfully, the victim was in stable condition as of the 14th of June.
This graduation party also saw another teenager, a 16-year-old, be shot and said teenager is also in stable condition.
Brandon Hendricks, a 17-year-old, was shot and killed on June 28th just days after graduating high school. The kid was reportedly attending a barbeque where he was allegedly shot by 22-year-old Najhim Luke. Hendricks was reportedly a local basketball star, intending on attending the college of St. John’s and was reportedly the unintended target of the shooting.
Community activist Kirsten John Foy said: “We have to stand and bury one of our own because of one of our own, that’s unacceptable and it’s unsustainable.”
Hendricks’ mother said: “You took away my life, you have no idea what you did to me. My son has my heart. Nobody knows how I feel, I don’t know how I feel.”
To remind you, these are just from New York City. I still have three more cities to go through and plenty of cases.
An unidentified 6-year-old was shot and killed on July 5th. Police have not revealed what exactly led up to the shooting, or even if the boy was killed by someone or if it was suicide.
An unidentified 11-year-old girl was injured by a gunman in southwest Philadelphia. Thankfully, she was treated at the scene and is in stable condition.
Angelo Walker was a 15-year-old who was shot in the head and died of his injuries at the hospital he was sent to. Walker was reportedly a high school football player, seemingly with a bright future before it was taken from him.
Rahim, a 15-year-old, was shot 17 times on June 22nd outside a store where he stopped to get some food following a game of pick-up basketball with his friends. A detail surrounding this shooting is that, ironically, Rahim was expected to participate in a career development program that aims to stop such violence. As of now, it is unclear what his current condition is, though he and a friend of his were hospitalized.
Finally, for Philadelphia, at least, an unidentified 17-year-old was shot though he is in stable condition as of last Saturday.
In Seattle, specifically near the CHAZ/CHOP zone, we have the two teenagers I talked about recently, a 16-year-old, identified as Antonio Mays Jr., who was shot and killed after driving his Jeep near, allegedly through, the barriers of the CHAZ/CHOP zone, and an unidentified 14-year-old who was also critically injured in said shooting.
Finally, in Washington D.C., we have the death of Davon McNeal, an 11-year-old who was shot and killed on the Fourth of July after a group of five males opened fire, shooting McNeal in the head, before fleeing via a vehicle, according to the police.
McNeal’s grandfather told Fox 5: “He was a good kid. I mean, his life gone. Eleven-years-old, he hadn’t lived his life yet, 11-years-old. We got to stop killing each other. Stop it. Put the guns down.”
None of these deaths or shootings had to happen. And there is no doubt about what exactly allowed for these things to happen: anti-police rhetoric and actions, specifically.
Just look at the number of kids I mentioned from NEW YORK CITY ALONE. 7 of the 16 kids, or 43%, were from New York City, where Mayor Bill Dumbassio has taken it upon himself to cripple the NYPD, cutting their budget and making it that much harder for police to do their job properly in a city that was already dangerous enough as it was.
And let’s not ignore the fact that each and every one of these cities are run by Democrats. They are lucky that I am choosing to omit Chicago, though I easily could have added that hellish city on this list as well, though the article would’ve been too long for my liking if I had.
Police are being demonized even by the very mayors that are supposed to have their backs, and not only that, they are being restrained from being able to do much of anything in these cities. And even when they do try something, even just defending themselves, they get all the crap in the world for it, as was the case with the Atlanta officer who killed Rayshard Brooks in self-defense and the Atlanta DOJ wants his head for it.
Either they are restrained by budget cuts or they have no reason to do their job properly because they would just suffer the consequences as a result. Atlanta police have no reason to serve due to their own leaders either not caring, at best, or calling for their heads at worst.
Do you want to look at case after case after case of people killing each other and still tell me that the police are not only the biggest problem, but the only problem worth discussing? That black-on-black crime is a myth and that it doesn’t happen and we shouldn’t talk about it even as we are seeing black child after black child suffer the consequences of such censorship and inaction?
What justice is there in this sort of sentiment? What justice is there in these actions? No justice, is the answer, which shouldn’t be surprising considering just what side of the political aisle is dominating these cities and the overall discussions the country is having.
Let’s discuss black trans lives and racist cops, but never the real problem of blacks killing other blacks, especially in Democrat-run hellscapes like Chicago or Compton, etc.
No real progress will ever be done if action is not taken regarding these things. Not that the Left actually cares about progress. They will literally advocate for segregation and call that “justice” and “progress.”
The Left is evil and their policies bring nothing but heart-break.
