82-year-old Maxine Waters is one of the most vitriolic racial antagonizers in the nation. During the George Zimmerman trial Maxine Waters demanded a guilty verdict. During the investigation of Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson she demanded a murder indictment based on the demonstrably false “hands-up, don’t shoot” claims. After the 2016 election Waters demanded that people physically confront Trump officials in restaurants and gas stations, “get up in their faces” and make them uncomfortable; in short, Maxine Waters consistently demands political violence.
There is zero doubt in my mind that Obama’s crew of racial antagonists are orchestrating and manipulating events around the trial of Derek Chauvin in the death of George Floyd. All political arrows are being deployed from the quiver of racial hate and division. Even the racially driven comments by Meghan Markle on the eve of the trial beginning were not random. The activated political leftists are once again drum-beating for violent confrontation.
Following her pattern, the California representative traveled to Minnesota’s riot-plagued Brooklyn Center last night and called for people to get even “more confrontational” if Derek Chauvin is acquitted. She is blatantly endorsing political violence and mob anarchy. “We’re looking for a guilty verdict” she said, adding “If we don’t, we cannot go away, we’ve got to get more confrontational.” WATCH:
Mercer University theology professor Chanequa Walker-Barnes wrote a prayer in which she asks God to help her “hate white people,” specifically, “the nice ones,” such as “the Fox News-loving, Trump-supporting voters” who “don’t see color.” She published the “Prayer of a Weary Black Woman” in the book A Rhythm of Prayer: A Collection of Meditations for Renewal.
“Dear God, Please help me to hate White people,” the professor began in her prayer, titled, “Prayer of a Weary Black Woman,” which was published in A Rhythm of Prayer: A Collection of Meditations for Renewal edited by Sarah Bessey.
“I want to stop caring about them, individually and collectively,” Walker-Barnes continued. “I want to stop caring about their misguided, racist souls, to stop believing that they can be better, that they can stop being racist.”
The professor went on to clarify that she is “not talking about the White antiracist allies who have taken up this struggle against racism with their whole lives,” nor is she even referring to “the ardent racists” who “plot acts of racial terrorism hoping to start a race war.”
“Those people are already in hell,” she wrote. “There’s no need to waste hatred on them.”
Walker-Barnes explained in her prayer that she specifically wants to hate “the nice ones,” who “don’t see color.”
“My prayer is that you would help me to hate the other White people — you know, the nice ones. The Fox News-loving, Trump-supporting voters who ‘don’t see color’ but who make thinly veiled racist comments about ‘those people,’” the professor wrote.
The people who are happy to have me over for dinner but alert the neighborhood watch anytime an unrecognized person of color passes their house. The people who welcome Black people in their churches and small groups but brand us as heretics if we suggest that Christianity is concerned with the poor and the oppressed. The people who who politely tell us that we can leave when we call out the racial microaggressions we experience in their ministries.
“But since I don’t have many relationships with people like that, perhaps they are not a good use of hatred either,” added the professor, who went on to ask God to instead help her “hate the White people who claim the progressive label but who are really wolves in sheep’s clothing.”
“Lord, if you can’t make me hate them, at least spare me from their perennial gaslighting, whitemansplaining, and White woman tears,” she continued.
“Grant me a Get Out of Judgement Free card if I make White people the exception to your commandment to love our neighbors as we love ourselves,” Walker-Barnes wrote.
Walker-Barnes is an associate professor of practical theology at Mercer University, according to the school’s website.
Mercer University did not respond to a Breitbart News request for comment.
Utah Rep. Burgess Owens (R) slammed The Salt Lake Tribune on Thursday in response to the newspaper publishing a “pathetic” political cartoon comparing the Black congressman’s rhetoric on the recent surge in migrants to that of the Ku Klux Klan decades ago.
“The @sltrib and @Patbagley compare me to the KKK, the radical hate group that terrorized me in my youth, because I am one of many sounding the alarm of the trauma being faced by women and children crossing the border. This is pathetic,” Owens tweeted about the longtime satirist Pat Bagley, with the hashtag “#wokeracism”.
The cartoon’s lefthand panel depicting Owens “last week” saying “They are coming to your neighborhoods!” next to a “border” sign, while the righthand panel features a torch-wielding klansman 70 years ago saying the exact same phrase.
Other members of Utah’s congressional delegation came to Owens’ defense and denounced the illustration, asking the newspaper to remove it and apologize.
“The Salt Lake Tribune recently published a repugnant ‘cartoon’ comparing Congressman Burgess Owens, our esteemed colleague and only black member of the Utah delegation, to a member of the Ku Klux Klan. This racially charged, perverse political statement is beyond the pale. We ask that The Salt Lake Tribune immediately take down this horrific image, issue a formal apology, and hold themselves to a higher standard,” said Sens. Mike Lee (R), Mitt Romney (R), and Reps. Chris Stewart (R), John Curtis (R), and Blake Moore (R) in a joint statement.
Bagley stood by his cartoon on Twitter.
In response to another tweet from Owens saying, “We have heard of ‘mansplaining’ now we have ‘whitesplaining’ from a white man comparing a black man, who grew up under Jim Crow laws, to the KKK. Awful tone deaf @sltrib @Patbagley. Expect an apology but I won’t hold my breathe,” Bagley wrote: “My problem with @BurgessOwens, as with so many Republicans, is his promotion of dangerous conspiracy theories totally divorced from reality”.
He also gave a longer defense of his cartoon in a lengthy thread.
“If any one of these Utah pols uttered the white supremacist dogwhistle Burgess Owens used he would have been featured in the cartoon. Treating Owens differently because of his race is the definition of racism,” Bagley wrote. “If Owens doesn’t want to be dunked for using white supremacist talking points then he shouldn’t use white supremacist talking points.”
Bagley then cited a portion from a recent speech Owen gave in Edinburg, Texas during a trip he took with other Republicans to the U.S.-Mexico border as the one which prompted satirist to create the cartoon. In the speech, the Utah Republican told President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris to visit the overcrowded migrant detention facilities holding thousands of unaccompanied migrant children, saying, “Get some backbone. Get some compassion. Come down to the border and see what mess you’ve made.”
In one part of the quote Bagley cited, Owens said: “So, no Americans, this isn’t a border issue anymore. They are coming to your neighborhoods, not knowing the language, not knowing the culture, and there is a cartel influence along the way.”
While Bagley admitted that he “can’t speak to the Black experience (obviously)” of Owens, he refused to apologize, saying, “but I know from White experience Owens’ words are the very same words supremacists use to instill fear and hate towards vulnerable communities. The cartoon was accurate. No apologies”.
According to Owens, who grew up under Jim Crow in the South, his great-great-grandfather Silas Burgess came to America shackled in the belly of a slave ship and was subsequently sold on an auction block in Charleston, South Carolina to the Burgess Plantation. Silas, Owens said, was able to escape his enslavement via the Underground Railroad to West Texas, where he became a landowner and founded the first black church and first black elementary school in his town.
Utah Gov. Spencer Cox defended racism against white kids during a question and answer session with constituents on Thursday.
During the session, live-tweeted by the governor’s official Twitter account, one Utah citizen asked “if it’s racist that the Utah Jazz excludes white children from the team’s scholarship program.”
The program created by the NBA team allots a scholarship to a new “underrepresented student of color enrolling as a freshman for the 2021-22 school year” for every team win during the 2020-21 season basketball season. To qualify for the funds, students must have graduated from high school and be a “person of color.” Since the program’s start, the team has handed out nearly 50 full-ride scholarships to black and minority students only.
Despite the team’s deliberate exclusion of white students from the program, Cox said the scholarship requirements are not racist.
“It’s not racist. Ryan Smith and the Jazz can do what they want with their funds. All kids should have equal opportunities, and we’re proud of the Jazz,” he replied.
David from Highland asks if it’s racist that the Utah Jazz excludes white children from the team’s scholarship program.
A: It’s not racist. Ryan Smith and the Jazz can do what they want with their funds. All kids should have equal opportunities, and we’re proud of the Jazz.
When asked if Cox believes that excluding white people from amenities, finances, and programs is racist, the governor’s office reiterated his former claim but said it did not apply to government scholarships.
“Gov. Cox believes the Utah Jazz has every right to act according to their own corporate values and issue scholarships to whomever they choose. Government scholarships, on the other hand, are not based on race,” a spokesperson from the governor’s office told The Federalist.
The Utah Jazz also did not respond to The Federalist’s request for comment.
In addition to his comments about racism during the question and answer session, Cox claimed, without evidence, that masks are still required in Utah schools because education facilities “had high transmission rates early in the pandemic.” Cox also told a citizen concerned about the governor’s amassed power during the pandemic that he doesn’t support “reining in executive powers — especially on health and safety issues.”
John from Provo asks about reining in a governor’s power.
A: Power is on loan from the Legislature during emergencies because they can’t respond as quickly. We don’t support reining in executive powers — especially on health and safety issues.
The California education department is considering implementing a statewide math framework that promotes the concept that working to figure out a correct answer in math is an example of racism and white supremacy invading the classroom.
The framework, titled “A Pathway to Equitable Math Instruction: Dismantling Racism in Mathematics Instruction,” is intended to be “exercises for educators to reflect on their own biases to transform their instructional practice.”
The “Equitable Math” website states its training manual was funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the primary private source of funding for the Common Core State Standards.
“White supremacy culture infiltrates math classrooms in everyday teacher actions,” the document states. “Coupled with the beliefs that underlie these actions, they perpetuate educational harm on Black, Latinx, and multilingual students, denying them full access to the world of mathematics.”
The proposed California framework provides examples of how “white supremacy culture” has infiltrated math classes in schools:
The focus is on getting the “right” answer.
Independent practice is valued over teamwork or collaboration.
“Real-world math” is valued over math in the real world.
Students are tracked (into courses/pathways and within the classroom).
Participation structures reinforce dominant ways of being.
Additionally, the document asserts the means by which teachers assess student learning in math is based on white supremacy culture, as demonstrated by:
Students are required to “show their work.”
Grading practices are focused on lack of knowledge.
Language acquisition is equated with mathematical proficiency.
The proposed California framework continues:
These common practices that perpetuate white supremacy culture create and sustain institutional and systemic barriers to equity for Black, Latinx, and Multilingual students. In order to dismantle these barriers, we must identify what it means to be an antiracist math educator.
In order to embody antiracist math education, teachers must engage in critical praxis that interrogates the ways in which they perpetuate white supremacy culture in their own classrooms, and develop a plan toward antiracist math education to address issues of equity for Black, Latinx, and multilingual students.
In the section that criticizes the concept of “getting the ‘right’ answer” in math, the document states:
The concept of mathematics being purely objective is unequivocally false, and teaching it is even much less so. Upholding the idea that there are always right and wrong answers perpetuate objectivity [sic] as well as fear of open conflict [sic].
Some in the education field are sounding the alarm about the “Equitable Math” framework.
According to Fox News, Lori Meyers, co-founder of Educators for Quality and Equality, said her organization sent a letter to California education officials, expressing its members are “deeply concerned about the draft 2021 CA Mathematics Framework, which contains discriminatory and divisive content that will impede us from accomplishing” important goals in math instruction.
“We ask that the state provide us with a mathematics framework that reflects sound, research-based practices over political ideology,” Meyers’ group added.
In February, the Oregon Department of Education defended its instruction of teachers via the “Equitable Math” training manual in how to teach mathematics by dismantling as “racist” the longstanding view of objectivity in math, as exemplified by the idea that one must obtain a correct answer to a math problem.
Breitbart News reported on the same “Equitable Math” manual:
The manual enumerates signs of “white supremacy culture in the mathematics classroom,” which include a focus on “getting the right answer,” an emphasis on “real-world math,” teaching math in a “linear fashion,” students being required to “show their work,” and grading students based on their demonstrated knowledge of the material.
“In order to embody antiracist math education, teachers must engage in critical praxis that interrogates the ways in which they perpetuate white supremacy culture in their own classrooms,” the manual declares, “and develop a plan toward antiracist math education to address issues of equity for Black, Latinx, and multilingual students.”
MSNBC analyst Claire McCaskill, a former Democratic Missouri Senator, left out critical details pertaining to the former criminal charges against Daunte Wright — a 20-year-old black man who was shot and killed in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota over the weekend during a traffic stop.
McCaskill claimed that Wright strictly has a prior charge of “carrying a gun without a permit.”
“You know why he had a warrant?” said McCaskill. “He had a warrant because he didn’t get a notice for a hearing. And you know what he was charged with? Carrying a gun without a permit in America. Are you kidding me? In most states, you don’t even have to have a permit to carry a gun.”
This claim is false. In addition to the warrant aforementioned, Wright had a warrant in relation to a case of aggravated armed robbery with a firearm. In December 2019, Wright and two men were charged with first-degree aggravated robbery in Ossesso, Minnesota. While Wright was released on $100,000 bail eventually, one of the conditions of his release was for him to not own a firearm, not use drugs or alcohol, and not speak to victims or witnesses. His bail was revoked in July due to owning a firearm, in addition to not remaining in contact with his probation officer, according to Fox News.
McCaskill added that people who are “targeted” by law enforcement can “never escape from” the justice system, while reiterating the false narrative that Wright was not “an armed robber.”
“In this instance, this young man paid the ultimate price for that, and that is his death,” McCaskill said. “And I do think that everybody in America is going, ‘wait a minute, this wasn’t an armed robber, this wasn’t a rapist, this wasn’t a murderer, this is a young man who didn’t show up for court on a charge that in most states wouldn’t even be against the law.’”
Earlier today, a prosecutor in Minnesota said Officer Kim Potter who shot Wright is being charged with 2nd-degree manslaughter. Potter was taken into custody by The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension and will be booked in the Hennepin County Jail. In the days since the shooting, riots have sprung up across the country.
President Joe Biden’s U.N. Ambassador Linda Thomas-Greenfield told the National Action Network Wednesday the United States must reckon with its own supposed rampant white supremacy before lecturing other nations on the Human Rights Council.
Other nations on the council include China, currently engaged in Muslim genocide of the Uyghur people and Russia, currently jailing opposition activist Alexei Navalny.
“When we raise issues of equity and justice at the global scale, we have to approach them with humility,” Thomas-Greenfield said. “We have to acknowledge that we are an imperfect union, and have been since the beginning.”
Thomas-Greenfield vilified the nation she represents at the world forum as an irredeemably racist country rooted in white supremacy and minority oppression based on her family history of discrimination.
“I’ve seen for myself how the original sin of slavery, weaved white supremacy into our founding documents and principles,” Thomas-Greenfield said. “Racism is not the problem of the person who experiences it … Racism is the problem of the racist, and it is the problem of the society that produces the racist. And in today’s world, that’s every society.”
The chief U.S. representative to the United Nations had previously railed against America’s inherent racism less than a month ago, pledging her allegiance to the advancement of critical race theory as her focal point in office.
“Because black lives matter, we need to dismantle white supremacy at every turn,” Thomas-Greenfield told a UN meeting on International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination in March, pushing to elevate the racist doctrine of critical race theory as a secular religion. “Racism is endemic. It’s built in, like a rot in a frame, and it remains, and it festers, and it spreads because many of those in charge allow it to. Others look away and pretend it’s not there. But like a cancer, if ignored, it grows.”
If I had to boil down the political wisdom I’ve learned over four decades of observing, studying, writing, and debating, it would be this…
Life in Rural America (which is where Republican Trump voters live and govern), is clean, safe and racially tolerant. Most places in America where life is dirty, polluted, dangerous, violent, and plagued with racial hate and race riots, are cities that are almost exclusively populated by and governed by Democrats.
Outside of these Democrat-run cities, America is peaceful, safe, clean, and racially tolerant.
What’s more, if you remove these Democrat-run cities from our national statistics, you will find an America that is overwhelmingly peaceful, safe, clean, and racially tolerant.
Nevertheless, Democrats and their fake-media allies still blame Republicans for all of their problems.
According to them, it is Republicans who are responsible for racism, pollution, and gun violence — even though, out here where we all live, our air, water, and streets are safe and clean… We all own guns, but where we live there is no gun violence crisis… We are all supposed to be racists and responsible for all the hate crimes, but out here where we all live, there is no hate crime crisis.
Now, there will be exceptions, but those exceptions only serve to prove the rule.
Let me lay this out for you…
Leftists say they want to live in a Utopia free of gun violence, free of pollution, and free of racism…
Well, that place already exists.
It’s called Rural MAGA Land.
Out here in Rural America the environment is clean, no one worries about getting shot, and there are no racial tensions.
Let me start with a personal example…
For a total of 20 years now, I’ve lived in rural North Carolina. My wife is a Mexican immigrant. Our interracial marriage has never been a problem with anyone. My wife has never had a problem with anyone.
For six years, my next door neighbor was a mixed-race family. Black and white. They never had a problem.
On the other side of me is a couple with mixed-race grandkids. Black, white, and brown. They’ve never had a problem.
Riddle me this fake-media and Democrats: If Rural America is where all the racists are supposed to live, where’s all the racism in Rural America?
Everyone I know out here in Rural MAGA Land owns guns (plural), and yet I can’t remember the last time we had a shooting in my county, a county where shoplifting still makes the front page.
Oh, and get this… We’re all supposed to be anti-environment, and yet out here in Rural MAGA Land, our waterways, streets, parks, forests, and neighborhoods are clean and filled with greenery.
Think about that. I mean really think about it.
You would think that instead of blaming us for all their problems, Democrats who live in these shithole cities would be asking us for advice on how to live, how to fix their neighborhoods, how to ease racial tensions — advice we would be happy to give.
Let me give you some concrete data…
According to the Department of Justice, out here where I live in rural North Carolina, throughout all of 2019, there were a total of only 20 hate crime allegations in our 13 rural counties where the population adds up to 668,000. That means that throughout 2019, there were only 2.9 hate crime allegations per 100,000 people.
Guess what the hate crime number is in some of the most progressive, left-wing cities in America? Well, you don’t have to guess, because I have those numbers for you….
Portland, OR = 5.75 reported hate crime incidents per 100,000
Washington DC = 29 (not a typo) incidents per 100,000 (this is where the elite media live LOL)
I think you are starting to get the point, but let’s close with my personal favorite…
Golly, gee, will you look at that! It is two and three times — and even ten times safer for a minority to live in Rural MAGA Country than it is in a oh-so progressive city populated and governed by Democrats.
How is that possible when we’re told that we are the racists? How is it possible that where all of America’s so-called racists live, where we all congregate, gather, own guns, and govern ourselves, there is less racism — and in most cases — MUCH less racism, than there is in cities filled with Democrats?
Shouldn’t there be more racism where all we “racists” live?
Look at those hate crime numbers again and what you will see is that a racial, sexual, and religious minority is around twice as safe in Rural Trump Land than they are in America’s most left-wing cities, and TEN TIMES safer than they are in Washington, DC, where Joe Biden won 93 percent of the vote!
Now that your left-wing head is spinning, you might begin grasping for straws to explain this away. Allow me to disabuse you of all your bad arguments…
You might want to believe no minorities live in Rural America, which means there are fewer opportunities for we yee-haw racists to commit hate crimes. Wrong, wrong, wrong….
Now while it’s true that there’s a smaller percentage of minorities living in Rural America than your shithole cities, that only proves further that Rural America is much more tolerant than Democrat-run cities. Think about this…
Out here in Rural America, minorities are outnumbered by white people much more than they are in your cities, and yet, out here, even though they’re outnumbered, they’re much safer living among those of us smeared as racists.
Here’s a timely example…
The Asian population in Rural America is less than one percent. That means that out here in Rural MAGA Land, Asians are outnumbered by white Trump voters by, let’s say, 100-to-1… And yet, even though we are being falsely blamed for this recent wave of anti-Asian hate crimes, no one in MAGA Land is committing hate crimes against these vastly outnumbered Asians. There is no anti-Asian hate crime crisis in MAGA Land; the place where Asians are at risk are in cities populated and governed by Democrats.
Bottom line: Where Trump voters live and govern, there are almost zero hate crimes. Ahh, but where Democrats live and govern, look at all those hate crimes.
But somehow, even though we Rural Trump voters don’t live there, we’re still blamed for all the hate crimes that happen in cities mostly populated by and solely governed by Democrats.
Fact: There are no racial tensions in Rural America. People of all races and creeds and backgrounds live here together in relative peace and harmony. And it’s glorious. It’s a wonderful, wonderful way to live.
And to those of you who are stupid enough to believe that the only reason there are no racial tensions in MAGA Land is because “black people are afraid or intimidated,” look at what happened in my little town just last year. And guess how many hate crime allegations there were in my county (Watauga) in 2019…? ONE. Or, as I like to put it, 303 fewer than in left-wing Seattle.
Anyone of any race, religion, color, sexual preference, or creed is welcome in MAGA country. As long as you leave us alone to live our beliefs, we will not only leave you alone to live your beliefs, if you ever need help, we will be there for you.
Almost everyone in rural MAGA Land owns guns (plural). I own nine guns. And yet, the gun violence crises happen in cities that have been populated and governed by Democrats for years. In some cases, decades.
If guns cause violence and Trump voters are violent, why are there no gun violence crises in Rural America?
If gun control ends gun violence and Democrats are less violent, why is there so much terrible gun violence where there’s the most gun control and in Democrat-run cities where Democrats live?
If Trump voters were indeed violent, instead of being idyllic and peaceful, Rural America would look like Dodge City circa 1875.
Here’s a list of the top 15 cities in 2020 with the most murders and which party runs those cities…
Chicago – Last Republican mayor was 1931
New York City – It took Democrat Bill de Blasio six years to destroy Republican Giuliani’s miracle.
Philadelphia – Only Democrat mayors since 1952
Baltimore – Only Democrat mayors since 1967
Houston – One GOP mayor since 1974
Los Angeles – One Republican since 1961
St. Louis – Only Democrats mayors since 1949.
Dallas – One Republican mayor since 1995
Kansas City – One Republican mayor since 1930
Indianapolis – Since 2000, eight years of GOP rule, 12 years of Democrat rule
Washington DC – Only Democrat mayors
New Orleans – Democrat mayors since 1872 (not a typo)
Jacksonville – Two Republican mayors and one Democrat since 2003
San Antonio – officially a non-partisan office, but leftists have run that city for two decades
Atlanta – Run by democrats since 1879 (not a typo).
Except for Jacksonville and Indianapolis (which have had both Republican and Democrat rule in recent years), every one of America’s most murderous cities has been run exclusively by Democrats for decades, and not a single one of those cities — not one! — has been run exclusively by Republicans.
Here’s a list of 2020’s top ten most dangerous cities per capita (violent crime incidents per 100,000 residents) and which party runs those cities… Spoiler alert: Democrats.
Detroit – 1,965 per 100,000 – Democrats have run Detroit since 1962
St. Louis – 1,927 per 100,000 – Democrats have run St. Louis since 1949
Memphis – 1,901 per 100,000 – Democrats have run Memphis since 1992
Baltimore – 1,859 per 100,000 – Democrats have run Baltimore since 1967
Springfield (MO) – 1,519 per 100,000 – mayoral office is non-partisan, but the city is left-leaning
Little Rock – 1,517 per 100,000 – ruled by Democrats for decades
Cleveland – 1,517 per 100,000 – Ruled by Democrats since 1990
Stockton – 1,397 per 100,000 – Alternates between GOP and Dem mayors.
Albuquerque – 1,352 per 100,000 – One Republican since 1985
Milwaukee – 1,332 per 100,000 – Only Socialist and Democrat mayors since 1906
Want to know the violent crime rate out here in Rural America where I and a whole lot of other gun-toting Trump voters live? Ready for this… 132 per 100,000. The overall crime rate in my Trump-loving county — even though our poverty rate is higher than Baltimore’s (more on this below) — makes it “one of the safest regions in the United States.”
In the rural and more Republican areas outside of those small towns and cities, it’s even safer.
How is this possible in areas populated by “violent” Trump supporters who almost all own guns?
What’s more, how is it possible that all these oh-so progressive cities filled with oh-so progressive citizens and oh-so progressive political leadership are so full of violence and racism?
Are you still blaming Trump voters? Well, get this….
We North Carolina Trumptards, with all our guns, still have a MUCH LOWER violent crime rate than even the 50th most violent city in America (Rochester, NY – 748 per 100,000). Oh, and Rochester has been run by Democrats since 1974.
You want to blame the crime rate on density? Well, I invite you to take a look at parts of Hickory and Lenoir and even Boone. We don’t have the sprawl of a Chicago or Los Angeles, but we have plenty of densely populated areas, and they are nowhere near as unsafe as your oh-so progressive shitholes.
Besides, if density causes crime and racism, why are Democrats pro-density? If density causes crime and racism, why are crime and racism blamed on guns and Trump voters? How about you idiots make up your sick minds?
I urge you to go through all 50 of the cities on the list linked above and look up who’s in charge. Yes, you will probably find some Republican-run cities, but once again, those are the exceptions that prove the rule. And I would like to add that there are places run by Democrats that are safe and clean and free of racial tensions. In fact, although my rural areas are Republican, Boone has a Democrat mayor.
That’s not my point.
So let me restate my point…
Out here in conservative, rural, Trump-loving America, we have no gun violence, pollution, or racial crises. But…. Nine times out of ten, when there is one of those crises, they are unrolling in places where Democrats live and govern.
Yes, like the rest of the country, Rural America definitely has a serious and troubling drug problem. Nevertheless…
Unlike Democrat-run cities, we have none of the murder, gangs, gun violence, carjacking, or homeless crises that go with it. No riots, no lootings…
Unlike Democrat-run cities, we have none of the murder, gang, gun violence, carjacking, or homeless crises that go with it. No riots or lootings…
Rural America is populated by Trump voters who are constantly accused of being anti-environment, but… My God, it is beautiful out here where we live. Green and lush, clear streams and rivers, clean streets, blue skies… Unlike the polluted, toxic waste dumps that are so many Democrat-run cities, we take care of our environment.
Democrats blame Trump voters for violence, racism, and pollution, but the truth is that where we all live and govern ourselves, we have no gun violence crisis, no racial tensions, and our air, water, and streets are safe and clean.
But in these shithole cities where Trump voters and Republicans have NO SAY AT ALL when it comes to governing and policy, where Democrats all live and govern themselves, there’s one gun violence, hate crime, pollution, and homeless crisis after another.
How can Democrats blame us for their own problems, especially when where we live we don’t have any of these problems?
If Democrats were truly interested in solving these problems, instead of blaming us, they would be emulating how we live, not criticizing and ridiculing it.
Until it interferes with someone else’s right to live their life how they wish, everyone is America has the right to live their life however they wish. So if you moron-Democrats want to live with violence, filth, pollution, racial tensions, hate crimes, feces-covered sidewalks, race riots, gangs, smog, mass-shootings, and homeless encampments, you have every right to. Godspeed. And if you want to live your life blaming the problems you are solely responsible for on us Trump voters, you have every right to do that, as well.
I could not care less how you live your miserable lives, because out here in Rural MAGA Land, life is sweet and the closest we come to your filth and crime and violence and racial tensions is when we watch the news. And when the news blames us for your problems, we just lean back in our Lazy Boys and LMAO.
You get what you vote for, and the idiots who live in Democrat-run shitholes are getting everything they deserve.

Left-wing pop superstar Cher believes Democrats are the only thing standing in the way of the GOP achieving what she says is the party’s “dream of white supremacy,” contending “they bring Jim Crow back” despite the fact that Democrats historically introduced, supported, and championed Jim Crow Laws in the U.S.
“’VOTER SUPPRESSION,’” Cher began. “2 Words That Define Immoral Republican Pols. They Bring Jim Crow Back, Wrap Themselves In The,&Have Gone 2 ‘Whites Only’2BLK, ETHNIC,& POOR DEMS FROM VOTING,& WINNING.”
“IF THERE R NO DEMS 2 PROTECT,Gop WILL ACHIEVE THE DREAM THEY’VE4. ‘WHITE SUPREMACY,’” the “Strong Enough” singer told her 3.9 million Twitter followers.
“VOTER SUPPRESSION.” 2 Words That Define Immoral Republican Pols. They Bring Jim Crow Back,Wrap Themselves In The🇺🇸,&Have Gone 2 “Whites Only”2BLK, ETHNIC,& POOR DEMS FROM VOTING,& WINNING.IF THERE R NO DEMS 2 PROTECT🇺🇸,Gop WILL ACHIEVE THE DREAM THEY’VE🙏🏻4. “WHITE SUPREMACY”
Cher later responded to a commenter who said “the right to vote shouldn’t come with barriers” in a democracy, triggering the left-wing activist to declare in all caps, “THIS IS NOT DEMOCRACY‼️”
“ITS GOP’S MANTRA ‘WHITE IS RIGHT’,& ‘ONLY THE RIGHT PPL SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO VOTE’ Why aren’t Dems Quaking in Their Boots About The Browning of. I’m Excited.We Are Better Together,” she added.
“VOTER SUPPRESSION.” 2 Words That Define Immoral Republican Pols. They Bring Jim Crow Back,Wrap Themselves In The🇺🇸,&Have Gone 2 “Whites Only”2BLK, ETHNIC,& POOR DEMS FROM VOTING,& WINNING.IF THERE R NO DEMS 2 PROTECT🇺🇸,Gop WILL ACHIEVE THE DREAM THEY’VE🙏🏻4. “WHITE SUPREMACY”
Nowhere in Cher’s tweets did she mention the fact that the Democrat Party is solely responsible for pushing and enacting Jim Crow Laws in the United States. The Democrat Party championed slavery and segregation, dating back to the country’s founding through the Civil War era. All the while, Democrat Party figures stood hand in hand with the pro-slavery KKK and worked to usher in the era of Jim Crow. While history may be lost on modern-day woke leftists, Republicans, such as Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX), remember and have made a point to bring the facts to the forefront of political discussions.
Last year, Gohmert introduced a privileged resolution to ban the Democrat Party for its roots of racism and ties to the Confederacy — a call which came as Democrats, ignoring their own history, began to demand historic statues to be taken down while calling for reparations in the name of equality.
Gohmert provided a list of key instances of the Democrat Party supporting and promoting racist policies, as Breitbart News detailed:
The Democratic Party platforms of 1840, 1844, 1848, 1852, and 1856 stated “that all efforts of the abolitionists, or others, made to induce Congress to interfere with questions of slavery . . . are calculated to lead to the most alarming and dangerous consequences; and that all such efforts have an inevitable tendency to diminish the happiness of the people and endanger the stability and permanency of the Union, and ought not to be countenanced by any friend of our political institutions.”
The Democratic Party platform of 1856 declared that “new states” to the Union should be admitted “with or without domestic slavery, as [the state] may elect.”
The Democratic Party platform of 1856 declared that “we recognize the right of the people of all the Territories . . . to form a Constitution, with or without domestic slavery.”
The Democratic Party platform of 1860, in seeking to uphold the Fugitive Slave Law of 1850 that required law enforcement officials to arrest any individual suspected of being a runaway slave, stated that “the enactments of the State Legislatures to defeat the faithful execution of the Fugitive Slave Law are hostile in character, subversive of the Constitution, and revolutionary in their effect.”
No Democrat in Congress supported the 14th Amendment, which gave full citizenship to freed slaves. It passed in 1868 with 94 percent Republican support and zero support from Democrats.
No Democrat in Congress supported the 15th Amendment, which gave freed slaves the right to vote. It passed in 1870 with 100 percent Republican support and zero support from Democrats.
Various state Democratic Party officials enacted policies to disenfranchise and “systematically suppress” the right of African Americans to vote. The resolution specifically cites the 1902 Constitution of the State of Virginia that disenfranchised about 90 percent of the African American voters at the time, forcibly reducing the number of eligible African American voters from about 147,000 in 1901 to about 10,000 by 1905. The resolution notes that this measure was “supported almost exclusively by Virginia Democrats.”
The administration of President Woodrow Wilson, a Democrat, “began a racial segregation policy for U.S. government employees and, by 1914, the Wilson administration’s Civil Service instituted the requirement that a photograph be submitted with each employment application.”
When the Democratic Party held its national convention in 1924 in New York City at Madison Square Garden, the event was commonly referred to as the “Klan-Bake” due to the influence of the Ku Klux Klan in the party.
Senate Democrats held a 75-calendar day filibuster against the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
Former Sen. Robert Byrd (D-WV), a known recruiter for the KKK, led the Democrats to oppose civil rights for African Americans.
Democrats “enacted and enforced Jim Crow laws and civil codes that forced segregation and restricted freedoms” for African Americans.
In June, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) ordered the removal of the portraits of four previous Speakers of the House who served in the Confederacy, stating that these portraits “set back our nation’s work to confront and combat bigotry.” However, Gohmert’s resolution notes that the Speakers that Pelosi removed (Robert M.T. Hunter, Howell Cobb, James L. Orr, and Charles F. Crisp) were all Democrats.
Despite that, leftists, including Cher, have continued to ignore their own party’s history while accusing Republicans of attempting to usher in the era of Jim Crow by pursuing basic election integrity measures in states across the country.
“Some of these voter suppression laws in Georgia and other Republican states smack of Jim Crow rearing its ugly head once again. It is 160 years since the 13, 14, and 15th amendments abolished slavery, and Jim Crow stills seems to be with us,” Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said during a Senate Rules and Administration Committee hearing on S. 1, or the “For the People Act,” last month.
Notably, a majority of voters, including a majority of black and Hispanic voters, support basic election integrity measures, such as voter ID.
In his first press conference in March, President Joe Biden claimed Republicans seeking to ensure election integrity in Georgia and other states “makes Jim Crow look like Jim Eagle,” insinuating the GOP is worse than segregationists. The president has continued to parrot this illegitimate sentiment, claiming the newly passed Georgia election bill mandating voter ID for absentee ballots, among other things that should be uncontroversial, is “Jim Crow in the 21st century.” Speaking on ESPN’s “SportsCenter,” Biden said the measure was “Jim Crow on steroids.”
“This is Jim Crow on steroids what they’re doing in Georgia and 40 other states. What is this all about? Imagine passing a law saying you cannot provide water or food for someone standing in line to vote,” Biden said. “Can’t do that? Come on. Or you’re going to close a polling place at 5:00 when working people just get off.”
Biden makes two false claims here. First, food and water are not prohibited at the polling place. The statute says, “This Code section shall not be construed to prohibit a poll officer from distributing … or from making available self-service water from an unattended receptacle to an elector waiting in line to vote.” The provision applies to solicitors, advertisers, and strangers handing out gifts. Additionally, people are more than welcome to bring their own food and water.
Biden’s second lie is that Republican Gov. Brian Kemp’s signed measure forces all polls to close at 5:00 p.m. This is also false since choice hours can expand voting from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. The bill also expands weekend voting, which the left-leaning Georgia Public Broadcasting acknowledged, saying, “One of the biggest changes in the bill would expand early voting access for most counties, adding an additional mandatory Saturday and formally codifying Sunday voting hours as optional.” The legislation itself states:
Requiring two Saturday voting days and two optional Sunday voting days will dramatically increase the total voting hours for voters across the State of Georgia, and all electors in Georgia will have access to multiple opportunities to vote in person on the weekend for the first time.
The president continues to float “Jim Crow” around, dangling it before seething and corrupt media, but the comparison doesn’t stand.
Segregation and Separation in Schools
The “separate but equal” doctrine, confirmed by the case Plessy v. Ferguson in 1896, upheld discrimination in facilities. Schools down south were still segregated, and white schools received more funding. The landmark decision passed 7 to 1, and the doctrine was reaffirmed again in 1927 in Lum v. Rice, which said Chinese students being excluded from schools did not violate the 14th Amendment. Jim Crow moved northward, as equality under the law in education was cast aside until the 1954 landmark decision Brown v. Board of Education, and thereafter as the government shifted course, such as in the 1964 Civil Rights Act.
Today, schools are not segregated — far and away the opposite. According to statistics compiled by an education website, the average amount of minority students in a private school stands at 27 percent. In Hawaii, the average is 72 percent, followed by New Mexico at 52 percent, District of Columbia at 46 percent, and California at 45 percent.
Is Biden really claiming voter-law improvements are the same as black people not having access to schools?
States outlawed interracial marriage long before Jim Crow. The first legislation on this dates back to 1788, when the commonwealth of Pennsylvania banned it (Maryland and other states had banned interracial marriage before 1776). This was followed by Massachusetts in 1843, Missouri in 1871, Alabama in 1883, Georgia in 1912, and so on. More than 30 states maintained laws banning interracial marriage, which Loving v. Virginia in 1967 ruled violated the 14th Amendment. Now you may marry who you wish, and same-sex marriage was upheld on a federal level in the 2015 case Obergefell v. Hodges.
Is Biden equating gross bans on interracial marriages with Georgia’s common-sense voting law?
For 13 months, civil rights leaders participated in a boycott that would pave the way for the 1956 decision in Browder v. Gayle that struck down segregation laws on public buses. The Montgomery Bus Boycott was in response to Rosa Parks being arrested and fined for famously refusing to give up her seat on a bus. Prior to the Browder ruling, blacks were routinely kicked off public transportation, with writer Ida B. Wells in 1884 notably being told by a conductor to change seats, prior to being removed by a group of men. Wells won a lawsuit and $500, but the Chesapeake and Ohio Railroad Company appealed the case in the Tennesee Supreme Court, and the decision was reversed.
Today, you can ride in a car with whomever, in addition to board any bus, train, or plane regardless of your skin color.
Is Biden really saying Georgia’s reasonable election laws are the same as racist public transportation policies?
In the 1830s, you had to be a white male in order to vote. Poll taxes beginning in the 1890s were a way for whites to take advantage of the blacks who were disenfranchised and poorer, with fewer opportunities. A “grandfather clause” allowed poorer whites to avoid the poll tax if an ancestor fought in the Civil War.
The 24th Amendment prohibited poll taxes in 1964 for federal elections, and the Supreme Court ruled five states’ efforts to continue the process leading up to 1966 unconstitutional in Harper v. Virginia State Board of Elections. According to James Cobb, a history professor at the University of Georgia and a former president of the Southern Historical Association, black voter registration increased by more than 70 percent upon the passage of the Voting Rights Act of 1965.
An Offensive Comparison
The bad-faith comparisons Biden is making are so perverse. Apparently, weekend voting, asking people to provide a driver’s license on an absentee ballot, and attempting to secure drop boxes are all “Jim Crow.” Not only is the president misleading the American people when he says this, but he is disrespecting black Americans whose ancestors endured legitimate discrimination at the hands of actual oppressive laws.
“President Biden is very adept at race-baiting. He and all of his cohorts and colleagues are,” Alveda King, the niece of Martin Luther King Jr., said on Fox News on Wednesday. “If you throw skin color into a discussion and you step on the emotions of people who have fought to be considered equal in the United States, then you’re going to immediately get support and confusion for that position.”
Let’s remember who our president is. This is the same guy who said, “You ain’t black” if you weren’t going to vote for him. Biden may continue to preach that it’s “a time to heal,” but healing can’t include falsely maligning the opposing political party as racist segregationists.
