Random Thoughts While Not Out ‘Protesting’

At a time in America when one’s race has never been less important, the left has taught an entire generation of the most privileged Americans ever to view the world through race-tinted glasses.

There were 13 Baltimore high schools where, in 2017, 0% of students could do math at grade level, and another half-dozen high schools where only 1% were math proficient. Do you really think these students even know enough about Gen. Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson to be mad at him?

During the Chicago Father’s Day weekend, when 14 people were shot and killed and over 100 were wounded, how many Confederate generals were spotted leaving the scenes of the crime? Just curious.

Shouldn’t monuments and schools dedicated to Barack Obama come down? After all, Obama’s ancestors on his white mother’s side were slave owners.

In 2017, more than 60,000 cops were assaulted. In recent years, about 50 cops have been shot and killed annually in the line of duty. More cops are killed by suspects in the line of duty each year than unarmed Blacks are killed by cops.

Whoever called compound interest “the most powerful force in the universe” never encountered “white guilt.”

Next up on the “cancel culture” docket are movies whose names might be offensive under the new woke standard: “Blackboard Jungle,” fictional characters Boston Blackie and Sam Spade, and all Shirley Temple/Bill Robinson dance scenes.

Can we skip to the part where the “protesters” who burned and looted stores denounce business owners as racist for refusing to rebuild?

House Democrats voted to make D.C. the 51st state. If this new state would likely produce two Republican senators, we wouldn’t be having this conversation — just as our borders would be tighter than a clam’s behind if illegal-aliens-turned-citizens were expected to vote Republican.

“But if we are honest with ourselves, we’ll admit that what too many fathers also are is missing — missing from too many lives and too many homes. They have abandoned their responsibilities, acting like boys instead of men.” — Then-Sen. Barack Obama, Father’s Day, June 15, 2008.

San Bernardino County, California, has declared “racism” a “public health crisis.” A 2013 Rasmussen poll asked Blacks, Hispanics and whites whether “most” people, in each of these three groups, are racist. Whites and Blacks ranked Blacks as the group with the most racists. Blacks, according to surveys commissioned by the Anti-Defamation League, are more than twice as likely as white gentiles to be anti-Semitic. Now what?

If the USA is “institutionally racist,” why stop at defunding the police? Why not defund public school education? Or public transportation? Or the military? Or the Federal Reserve System? Or government-funded PBS and NPR? Or government-sponsored enterprises Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac? Or the federally owned Tennessee Valley Authority and the federally and state-subsidized Amtrak? Or government agencies like the Social Security Administration; the Internal Revenue Service; the Departments of Health and Human Services, Housing and Urban Development, Education, Labor, etc.?

There are far more bad public school teachers than there are bad cops. And it practically takes an act of Congress to get a bad public school teacher fired. So, when and where can we expect the #DefundPublicEducation rallies?

Hyperleft “activist” Shaun King wants the statues of “white European” Jesus Christ to come down because “they are a form of white supremacy.” There is no shortage of candidates, but is there a bigger idiot in America?

Social justice warriors promise not to rest until there is a complete and total elimination of racism. Really? Elimination? In a country where, 25 years after his death, 8% believed “there is a chance” that Elvis is still alive? Good luck.

Winning an argument is far less important than winning someone over to a new, clearer way of thinking.

“But the truth is, and people are starting to realize this — racism as a system is often more dangerous and destructive. You know, preventing Black people from getting loans, stopping Black kids from getting an equal education, racial disparities in medical treatment. You know, racism is like the corn syrup of society. It’s in everything. So, right now, thanks to this movement, the movement in the streets, we are being forced to look at all of the ways we might be further perpetuating negative ideas that enforce racism in the world.” — Trevor Noah, June 10, 2020.

So says Noah, the immigrant from post-apartheid South Africa, the product of a then-illegal relationship with a white man and raised by his single Black mom. Noah comes to the United States, gets rich and famous in the intensely competitive field of comedy, lives in a Bel Air mansion, which he reportedly bought for $20.5 million — and whines about racism in America!

Because I don’t think of myself as a victim, I’ve been asked, “How many times have you been called a ‘n-word’?” Rarely am I asked, “How many times have you been called an ‘Uncle Tom’/’coon’/’sellout’?” — even though I’ve long since lost count.

  1. This man is so correct in everything he says. Everyone should read as our country which has been great is being torn down by the Left and they are so wrong in their thinking.

  2. If Trump were to run his re-election campaign on term limits for congress he would win and unite the American people

  3. Democrats only care of two things..power and money.root of all evil.now evil has been unleashed all thru their cities in the name of blm. distruction, looting killings and spreading the virus..pelosi thinks it’s fine and her plan is working she can use it against Trump and blame trump while her fake news tryst to censor the truth and brainwash voters.TRUMP2020

    1. It isn’t money that is the root of evil…money is an inanimate object. Just like guns are not evil, they don’t move or shoot by themselves, it’s the person who USES A GUN to do evil.

      The verse is: THE *LOVE OF MONEY* IS THE ROOT OF ALL KINDS OF EVIL….”

  4. Since you mentioned Father’s Day in the report, it has been proven true numerous years that Father’s Day is definitely the most confusing day of the year in the black communities.

    1. I would imagine that it would be when no one knows who Is who. When there is no father figure in the home, you’ve got what we have here today. You have a choice, go out and riot and whine about how badly you’re treated, or you can stay at home and take care of your family and go to work every day. Pretty simple equation.

  5. Will Denzel Washington, Samuel L. Jackson, Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson (I could go on) have to change their names?
    PS….very funny John Kellerman….have you no shame?

  6. American history is not being taught in school so I’m told!! SO WHY ALL NECK BREAKING SPEED destroying all statue’s…. MORE OF THE Liberal/Left …. idiotic lunacy!!!!

  7. I’ve been saying this for decades now. There are more Black Racists in this Country than any other ethnic group.
    When I was ten years old, my thirteen year old brother and I went to the Los Angeles Coliseum to see a Dodger Baseball Game with a group of Herald Examiner newspaper boys. Our manager took us to the game. During the game my brother and I went up top to get a hot dog and a drink. When we started back to our seats through one of the tunnels, we were Immediately surrounded by 8-10 Black kids about 15-16 years old. They took our food and everything we had except the clothes on our backs; knocked my brother to the ground while making racial slurs; then kicked him and ran.
    We told our manager when we got back to our seats, and he took us back up top to report the incident to the police. Later during the game, we saw LAPD officers chasing the kids through the stadium across the field from us. Don’t know that they caught them, but we were never contacted by the police after that.
    This was my first up close and personal introduction to Black kids.

  8. Mr. Elder shares many years of his experience and dispenses it as wisdom and truth. He is on point. Perhaps that is why the black race baiter’s and black liberals disparage or ignore him. They, like most loony liberals can not face or accept facts and truth. If you never accept either you will never change your life trajectory. This is the path the loony liberals have been on since at least the mid ’60’s. Some would say it is the path they have been on since before the Civil War.

  9. Dont get that kind of truth out of the fake news or the nazi papers after we put trump back in we most go after these fake new pepole they are hurting our kids with there lying all the time they are no longer till.the news no where have they said anything about obama gate an biden no where about the hell about to come down with barr they are hideing it from you an again the fake polls lol just like last time keep beliveing them lol

  10. This guy is not only intelligent but he is also truthful to a fault. I found myself agreeing with him on almost every point!
