Democrats forgot Harriet Tubman was a gun-toting Republican

Published

on

For once, last week President Obama may have done something right.

His administration announced that it’s replacing the image of a Democratic segregationist slave-owner on the $20 bill with that of a Second Amendment loving, gun-toting freedom-loving Republican.

On Wednesday, Treasury Secretary Jack Lew announced the change from Andrew Jackson on the face of the $20 to former slave Harriet Tubman, noting that she helped free hundreds of slaves via the Underground Railroad.

But it was what he didn’t say that was most interesting.

Daniel John Sobieski observed additional facets of Tubman’s life in American Thinker, with an assist of her biographer, Kate Clifford Larson.

“Harriet Tubman carried a small pistol with her on her rescue missions, mostly for protection from slave catchers, but also to encourage weak-hearted runaways from turning back and risking the safety of the rest of the group,” he wrote. “Tubman carried a sharp-shooters rifle during the Civil War.”

Tubman’s possession of firearms fits in well with the founding of the National Rifle Association.

Three years ago a group of black conservatives gathered at a press conference to voice their support for the NRA. One of them was Harry C. Alford, CEO of the Black Chamber of Commerce.

“The National Rifle Association was founded by white religious leaders who wanted to protect free slaves from the Ku Klux Klan,” Alford said.

Tubman was also a Republican — just like all African-Americans during Reconstruction. After all, they owed their freedom to the party of Lincoln.

“The first woman on United States bank notes will be the famous abolitionist and Republican Harriet Tubman, Politico reported, noted Sobieski. “She will give the boot to the nation’s sixth president and a major figure in the Democratic Party, Andrew Jackson, on the $20 bill, and save the founder of the nation’s financial system, Alexander Hamilton, from being kicked off the $10 bill.”

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee made the connection Thursday, and posted it to his Facebook page

It quickly assumed viral status, garnering over 7,800 “likes,” 3,600 “shares” and 1,900 comments.

Her reasoning is probably best expressed in her own words, which, according to National Review, have a distinct “Live free or die” bent.

“I had reasoned this out in my mind; there was one of two things I had a right to, liberty, or death; if I could not have one, I would have the other; for no man should take me alive; I should fight for my liberty as long as my strength lasted, and when the time came for me to go, the Lord would let them take me.”

National Review noted that in addition to firearms, Tubman was often seen with a pearl-handled sword.

Trump’s Motorcade Just Came To Abrupt Halt In Indiana After What’s Spotted Right Out His Window

Published

on

President Donald Trump didn’t hold back when he expressed his displeasure with the National Football Lague (NFL) allowing players to kneel during the anthem. This lit a fire under the controversy, leading to more protests and liberals speaking out in support of this divisive message that entitled athletes were sending. It’s been nearly a week of this tug-of-war between right and wrong on this matter that has come to a head in an unexpected way, just inches from Trump’s motorcade today.

The protests have always been about disrespecting our flag and showing a complete lack of appreciation for those who died defending it. If it was simply to bring about “unity” and attention to supposed police brutality in the black community, these players could have shared their opinion on the matter outside of the National Anthem. They wanted the attention and reason to get publicly irate at a perceived problem they brought to the surface and have taken way too far.

Since the president spoke out about their actions, they protests become almost entirely as a way to show hate to the Commander-in-Chief who rightfully addressed the issue. All manner of threats and accusations ensued from there. On Wednesday, he was in Indianapolis when his security detail noticed what someone was doing just inches from the armored vehicles and snapped a picture.

This shot speaks volumes more than what these athletes have been doing all week on their knees. This background behind what brought this man to Trump’s ride sends a stronger message that what he realized he was making.

A black man was on his knee outside the motorcade for a different reason than those in the NFL, based on who he is and what he was holding. While what he had to say was not an opinion that everyone agrees on, there was another message that he didn’t know he was sharing but is the one that really needs to be heard.

The Hill reports:

An Army veteran who took a knee with a folded flag as President Trump’s motorcade passed by him on Wednesday says the president’s criticism of NFL players who kneel during the national anthem is “totally wrong.”

Marvin Boatright told The Huffington Post that he hoped someone in Trump’s motorcade would notice him kneeling while wearing an American Legion hat and holding a folded flag as the motorcade passed by en route to Trump’s speech on tax reform.

“For the commander-in-chief to call our citizens ‘sons of a bitches’ was totally wrong and beneath the dignity of the office that he holds,” Boatright told the Post.

A photo of Boatright kneeling went viral Thursday on Twitter.

While it’s Boatright’s opinion to think that what the president said was “totally wrong,” he has the right to feel that way without inciting violence since he did so in a respectable manner when the anthem wasn’t being performed. He knows what it means to honor the flag and respects what it represents while having a difference of opinion too.

The problem has never been people not showing compassion for their convictions or right to express them. It’s always been about a time and place and kneeling protesters knew what they were doing when they disrespectfully did so during our nation’s sacred anthem. It doesn’t make someone racist to expect respect either.

“As a veteran, and as an African-American, we have already and we continue to serve for God and country,” Boatright went on to explain to The Huffington Post. “But you can have a love of God and country and still be against social injustice. You don’t have to separate one from the other.”

While the injustice he speaks of is debatable, given that more black men are shot by other black men than they are by white police officers, he at least sets a good example that you can respect our flag and other people’s opinions while still making the point you say you’re trying to make.

I don’t agree with Boatright on this matter but can agree to disagree with him since he’s had the audacity to express his opinion in a peaceful manner that wasn’t meant as a distraction from honoring our country. He sent a powerful message in his own right and that’s what needs to be recognized by those who do it differently.

Trump can even appreciate this since his words have been twisted to mean something different than how he delivered them. All he wanted was for people to express their opinions in the right time and place, which Boatright did. If unity are what these kneelers are really after, then they can go about advocating for that in a way which actually promotes peace.

Chicago Cop Get Horrible News After His Entire Department Sees What He’s Posing With In Picture

Published

on

The national anthem protests reached a fever pitch this past weekend when hundreds of NFL players knelt when ‘The Star Spangled Banner’ began to play. This action ignited a social media firestorm with both sides of the argument battling it out online over why these players are being allowed to disrespect our veterans.

Some people claim that this protest is about fighting racial inequality, others argue that it is about police brutality, and then there is the logical option that is just about disrespecting our country and flag. In response, many conservatives have started staging their protests by boycotting the entire NFL season and canceling their NFL subscription channels.

One Chicago police officer wanted to make his feelings clear on where he stood on this anti-American protest. And, just as you would expect this officer has been reprimanded for sharing his “political views,” all while NFL players are treated like they are the second coming of Martin Luther King Jr.

A white Chicago police officer is in trouble today after he posted a picture of himself on Facebook holding the American flag. In the image you can see the officer holding the flag with a sign in front of him that says: “I stand for the anthem,” “I love the American flag” and “I support my president and the 2nd Amendment.”

Of course, there is nothing wrong with this image, but according to Chicago police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi, it violates policy.

Guglielmi states that while officers are on duty, they must refrain from making political statements which is why the officer was reprimanded. So, an officer that says he stands for the National Anthem, loves the American flag, supports the president, and the right to carry is a political statement? These messages are not political but have been our tenets for our country since we were founded.

Now, let’s couple this story with what a political statement actually looks like, shall we?

During the same time frame that this officer shared his love of country, two black officers were busy making a real statement. A black activist by the name of Aleta Clark entered a Chicago police station and asked the cops to kneel and put up a black power fist to protest the brutality of their profession.

Then these officers dared to take a picture of them doing this and post it on social media.

And, of course, the image has quickly gone viral.

Here is more from WSMV:

Two Chicago police officers will be reprimanded after they were photographed kneeling with a civil rights activist in support of nationwide protests.

Activist Aleta Clark posted the photo to her Instagram account Monday showing her kneeling between the two cops, while all three held their fists in the air.

She captioned the photo: “That moment when you walk into the police station and ask the men of color are they against police brutality and racism and they say ‘yes.’”

Clark also said the officers took a knee to back San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

The officers are now facing a reprimand for violating department policy against political activity while on duty, the Chicago Tribune reports.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel said he understands why the department is disciplining the officers, but can also see progress in his community.

“You have a community activist who felt comfortable enough to ask police officers, so the first symbol is we’re making progress on our community relations,” the mayor said.

More than 200 NFL players protested during the National Anthem on Sunday, opting to kneel or sit.

Kaepernick started the movement last year when he decided to take a knee during the anthem to protest police brutality.

For any logical person, it is clear which one is a politically motivated action and one that isn’t, and I will give you hint it isn’t the image with the flag.

The officers kneeling down on one knee with a fist raised is all about a political movement. Hello? Has anyone heard of Black Lives Matter? You know the group that calls for white genocide and the murder of police officers? Seriously, these police officers are actually protesting themselves.

On the hand, the white officer is expressing what we all have before liberal brainwashing took over our beautiful country. At least they are being consistent with their reprimands, but let’s be honest; the gentleman with the flag should be applauded and the other officers suspended. But that would make sense and we live in a world that is upside down.

NFL Just Received FINAL Blow With AWESOME NEW Pro-America League That’s Stealing ALL Their Fans

Published

on

When Americans turn on the TV to watch NFL football, the last thing they want is to be bombarded by the anti-American sentiments of “oppressed” millionaires whining about the “injustices” of our country. Over the past couple of weeks nearly-empty stadiums and viewership plummeting into the double digits has spelled disaster for the NFL of things to come, as angry fans prove they can easily find other ways to spend their money and precious time. Now the ladies from the The Legends Football League, formerly known as the Lingerie Football League, is making their sentiments about these protests known, and it will make you proud as hell to be an American.

The NFL has falsely portrayed itself as a patriotic organization, but we’re sadly realizing that’s not the case. The anti-American NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is encouraging these protests to continue, while lambasting outraged fans with the message that we need to “be more understanding” of these racist protests.

In an even uglier week of protests where players are now getting on all-fours pretending to pee like dogs and the continued black power salutes we see black players rendering when the sack white players on the field, the NFL stands to lose billions this season if something quickly isn’t done to stop this insanity. Now the outspoken ladies of the Legends Football League (LFL) is shocking America with their bold message for the NFL, whose stadiums they frequently play at with their female league.

“The LFL recognizes everyone’s First Amendment right to protest, but our nation’s flag and anthem are far too sacred,” the league said. “Too many fellow Americans have made the ultimate sacrifice so that our flag and anthem continue in all its majesty.”

They went on to say they recognize the “blood, sweat, and tears” needed to preserve the ability to raise the flag, and during a recent game, all the ladies joined to salute the flag and all those who have made America “the greatest country in the world.”

Looks like these ladies have a healthy dose of common sense to go along with their incredible athletic ability and good looks. Their defiance to take stand against the NFL is sending shockwaves across America, and these ladies’ games might serve well as a entertainment replacement for the hundreds of thousands of Americans who’ve sworn off watching the NFL forever.

If you’re not a fan yet of the LFL, these chicks are even tougher than most of the whiny protesters in the NFL, and I’m willing to bet most of them could give “oppressed” millionaires like Colin Kaepernick a run for his money.  Take a look at a few of these jaw-dropping plays. These ladies can not only inflict a serious hit, but they can take it like a champ as well, all while doing it in skimpy little outfits!

No doubt the LFL will be raking in an enormous amount of new fans after their patriotic decision to stand for America before their games. It will be fun to watch the NFL lose billions this season, as these protesting athletes as well as NFL officials are turning their backs on their fan-base that’s comprised of America-loving fans. Several days ago, we learned that the NFL is looking to expand these protests even further, as NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is now considering turning the entire month of November into a month for recognizing police brutality and demonizing our cops.

A memo sent to the NFL demanding that they turn November into an “activism awareness month” to protest police in America is being led by Seattle Seahawks’ Michael Bennett, Philadelphia Eagles’ Malcolm Jenkins, Eagles’ Torrey Smith and former NFL player Anquan Boldin. All these players have been very vocal with their protests all year, with Bennett swearing during preseason to continue Colin Kaepernick’s protesting “legacy.”

The NFL has been completely hijacked by race-baiting liberals who are now using America’s favorite pastime as a disgusting platform to spew their anti-American and cop-hating antics. It’s absolutely disgusting that the commissioner of the NFL is choosing to side with these protesters.

It’s refreshing to see these tough ladies taking a stand for what is right, and they rightfully deserve to be in the media spotlight. It’s time we start sharing stories like this, rather than giving these nasty NFL one more second of limelight, and send the clear message that if they want to continue to disprespect our country, they can do it in a stadium with zero fans.
