One Word Explains SJWs Attempt To Change Our Culture

Chuck Yarling

Published

on

2017 is definitely the year that social justice warriors (SJWs) have been active in removing Confederate statues and anything else they seem to think should be removed from our sights. Indeed most people are unaware that it actually started in June of 2015 right after the Charleston, S.C., shooting. It was there that Dylan Roof murdered nine African Americans in their church during their service.

Since then, cities across the country began removing monuments and memorials related to the Confederacy on public property. It seemed that these social justice warriors believed these things glorified white supremecy and memorialized a government whose founding principle was the perpetuation and expansion of slavery.

Needless to say these idiots jumped on the Confederate flag too. However, everyone who did so were totally unaware (history-deficient, ill-informed, stupid?) that the flag to which they referred, with the crossed blue banners containing stars was not the Confederate flag but a battle flag of the northern Virginia. Everyone with a little historical knowledge learned that the “real” flag had the “Stars and Bars”. There is a difference, doncha know?

And ever since the Roof killing spree, Confederate stuff has been removed from the sight of mankind to distant places. So what’s going on here? It’s called presentism:

It’s defined in literary and historical analysis as the anachronistic introduction of present-day ideas and perspectives into depictions or interpretations of the past.

In other words, SJWs are removing our true history right before our very eyes. So here are some comments why presentism is the wrong way to view history.

One contributor on Reddit.com, a social media website, wrote:

Quit viewing the past through your modern eyes sometimes. Yes, what Columbus did to the Indians was terrible to us, but to really measure his worth you have to ask, “Was he a bad person by the standards of his time?” You can’t really apply modern concepts to past events.

And another one added:

History seeks understanding and comprehension, and that is best achieved in many cases by viewing the world not through the hind-sight of 21st century righteousness, but by trying to view and understand people and events in the contexts of their own times, places, and actions.

What we really need to do is look at our past through the WABAC Machine or Wayback MachineIt’s is a fictional time machine from segments of “Peabody’s Improbable History”, a recurring feature of the 1960s cartoon series The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show. Mr. Peabody and Sherman used it to transport themselves back in time to visit important events in human history.

So what’s wrong with presentism when it removes history from our sight, the public, and even our schools? George Santayana, a professor in philosophy a Harvard, said it best:

“Those Who Do Not Learn History Are Doomed To Repeat It.”

Yes indeed! Can anyone disagree with him?

BREAKING: Trump Suffers Targeted Attack – They Found It In His UMBRELLA!

THEY HAVE LOST THEIR MINDS!!!

Frank Lea

Published

on

President Donald Trump suffered a vicious attack from leftists and mainstream media when he was boarding Air Force One at Palm Beach International Airport. The attack came after he spent a fun weekend at Mar-a-Lago. Trump and family were boarding the plane while it was slightly raining and that’s where photogs shot Trump with a camera. They took numerous pictures of Trump holding an umbrella, waiting with for his family at the top of the stairs that lead to the plane. The leftists found the attack in his umbrella and conjured up a story faster than a Salem witch crafting a spell.

The attack that leftists created was to suggest that President Trump refused to hold an umbrella for his family. It’s a made-up story that was created using photography, but there is no basis nor reality to it. People are suggesting that Trump was more interested in protecting his hair from a little bit of rain, but not interested in keeping his family dry. The article makes it appear as though 11-year-old Barron and 47-year-old Melania were left to fend for themselves in the rain. However, it wasn’t raining that much, and they were trekking up a skinny staircase to Air Force One.

The stories attacking President Trump made it seem as though he purposely hogged the umbrella all to himself. They make it appear as though the Presidential family could not afford an extra umbrella. They made it seem like Donald Trump had the only umbrella left on the planet and he kept it all to himself to protect his hair. That’s just not true. Barron is seen in pictures wearing a t-shirt and Melania isn’t the type of woman who is afraid of a little bit of rain.

The truth about these photographs is that if they wanted an umbrella, then they would have one at the drop of a dime. The presidential family can get anything they want, so why would anyone think this falsified story about Trump protecting his hair is anything less than a sarcastic rag on the Trump family? There’s entirely no substance nor validation to their fake story.

Here’s what the Daily Mail reported about the situation, with my commentary on it.
“President Donald Trump along with wife Melania and son Barron boarded Air Force One amid rainy Florida weather on Martin Luther King Jr day. Photos show President 45 holding a large black umbrella close to his head – perhaps in an effort to keep his famous hair from being pelted by rain drops.”

To keep his hair from being pelted by rain? Apparently, that’s what an umbrella is used for. Umbrellas protect people from the sun and the rain. It’s impressive that they came up with such a beautiful invention. Thank goodness the 45th President of the United States had access to an umbrella. I didn’t know that was something that came with the job. It’s a good thing that people know what it’s used for. How else would anyone keep dry on a slightly rainy day?

“But wife Melania, 47, and Barron, 11, were left to the mercy of the elements as they boarded the plane at Palm Beach International Airport in West Palm Beach. It is not clear whether Trump, 71, at any point offered space under his large umbrella to his wife or son.

One photo even shows the ever-careful Trump closing his umbrella from inside the plane – ensuring that at no point he would be struck by the water.”

Left to the mercy of the elements? Melania is a grown woman, and Barron is a growing boy. He’s wearing a t-shirt, so apparently, it’s not that cold or rainy. Is this person attacking the Trump family and suggesting that Donald Trump would not provide an umbrella or clothing for his family? This could be the most nonsense attack on the Trump family that has ever been seen in history. This is entirely bogus leftist propaganda that only a fool would consider reality.

At no point during a President’s job is there a time where they could not get an umbrella or shirt. This is preposterous and ridiculous at the most exceptional level of leftism.

It is embarrassing to see leftists and their journalists fall to such a low level of spite that the create a fabricated story with absolutely no basis of fact, nor relevance, nor much intelligence either.

Here are pictures of the day. There is absolutely no story to this other than a few people getting on a plane.

BREAKING!! What Oprah Said About White People In This Video Will MAKE YOU SICK!

SHE’S NOW INELIGIBLE TO RUN!!!

Published

on

They were searching for years. It finally happened. They eventually found their “one” true gem after last year’s failure. Now after years of searching, liberals finally feel like they’ve seen a woman who can win the Presidency. Ironically, the notion to find a TV star candidate was stolen from the fact that President Trump had a bit of a TV career to go along with the rest of his business ventures. It’s also not lost on anyone that there are no two names more synonymous with wealth in America than Donald Trump and Oprah Winfrey. It’s quite funny that people on the left kept spouting off that you can’t have a television billionaire run for President – but now they have their television billionaire they want to run for President. Funny how that works, right? The left has literally copied exactly what the right does because they’re unable to craft their own winning strategy.

Liberals have found President Trump’s antithesis and plan to run her against him in the next presidential election of 2020. Winfrey is also boosted by the fact that she has a couple of social justice warrior bonus points working in her favor; she’s black, and she’s a she. She has everything that they said Hillary had, but without that annoying and predatory Bill tagging along for the free ride.

The one other thing that Oprah has in common with President Trump is that her career hasn’t been in politics. She hasn’t had to look over her shoulder and watch her mouth for her entire life. She’s just been giving out prizes from under the seats of her show set and participating in other business ventures that have nothing to do with politics. In the case of President Trump, that didn’t matter too much, because he wasn’t running on a platform of political correctness. That’s where they differ. Oprah would most likely be on the plan with political correctness, something that America has gotten sick of hearing about.

Oprah has given numerous honest and very liberal opinions over the years, and that is now coming back to haunt her. To make matters worse, the bumbling mainstream media is jumping up to defend her, and it’s not going well.

It’s scary to think of Oprah Winfrey in the Oval Office as anything more than a guest taking a tour. Her unashamed opinion on race issues and disdain for white people could be a problem. The longtime TV host has become increasingly anti-white over the years, to the point that she’s handing down a proverbial death sentence to those who don’t agree with her. Her idea is that racism is a problem of the past, so to fix the problem, those who lived in that time just need to die. That’s right folks. It was a horrible thing she said, and this video would be the bane of her existence if she ever ran for President. Oprah said as much in an interview in 2013:

It’s difficult to see someone who is considered to be a national leader asking for the death of hundreds of thousands of Americans. It’s even more painful to think people would want her to run the country with that attitude. Now, to be fair, she’s probably right about a small fraction of the older generation. There will always be at least a few people who say racially inappropriate things, but they do not stand for or represent the majority of our good Americans. Even if there are a few old cronies with a racist bone in their body, that doesn’t mean everyone is like that. That also doesn’t mean Oprah should call for a mass genocide of old white people.  That is a terrible and racist thing to say. It makes Oprah look like the black female Hitler who calls for the killing of a particular kind of people. Is that who the American people would want to vote for? I don’t think so.  It is NOT EVER OK to suggest that Americans try to kill people off just because they disagree with someone. What Oprah said is unforgivable and disgusting. We cannot believe she would say anything like that.

This probably seems exceptionally radical, based on what she just said, that someone would try to kill an old person because they’re racist, but it’s perhaps not as far-fetched as you might think. Currently, California, Colorado, District of Columbia, Oregon, Vermont, and Washington have “death with dignity” laws that allow a terminally ill patient to voluntarily request and receive a prescription medication to hasten their death. This practice is also called euthanasia, which is a term that encompasses any physician-assisted suicide, and it dates back as far as ancient Greece and Rome.

The United States is beginning to accept the reasoning that a person might need to die before their natural time, based strictly on the quality of life. Right now, as with most of the new technologies offered to us, it’s optional. If we decide that our life isn’t worth living, we can end it. However, throughout most of history, it hasn’t been the patient choosing whether to pull their plug. In a socialist society, where it’s all for one and one for all, someone always has to decide what will be for the “greater good.”

In fact, Euthanasia comes from the Greek words, Eu (good) and Thanatosis (death) and it means “Good Death, “Gentle and Easy Death.” This word is used for “mercy killing.”  Withdrawal or with-holding treatment was practiced in history, the correct term for this is orthothanasia, which means ‘passive death.’

If you combine that with the incredibly scary, and over-reaching liberties taken in the Affordable Care Act (aka, Obamacare), then you can see how we were (and maybe still are) a hop, skip and a jump from the government choosing who lives and dies. If racism is considered cancer that should be cut out, then racism is redefined to mean anything liberals want, they would be able to hand down a death sentence to anyone the government wanted, by withdrawing care.

“Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” That is what we were promised in the constitution, but we’ve now come full circle to the point where we need to depend on another truth given to us by a founding father:
We must, indeed, all hang together or, most assuredly, we shall all hang separately. – Ben Franklin

Barack Just Made Disturbing Comment About Sasha While She’s On Beach Vacay – We Knew It!

WHO SAYS THAT ABOUT THEIR DAUGHTER!

Frank Lea

Published

on

The Obama family was spotted by paparazzi doing what they’re best at doing. This time it was only partially paid for by taxpayers. Half of the Obama family was on vacation in Miami, soaking up some sun, spending taxpayer money on security that had to travel. That’s when it got bizarre. Former President Obama became quite strange and creepy, even though he wasn’t spotted on the trip, but sure had something odd to say about it. Only Malia and Michelle were located in Miami, trying to soak up the taxpayer sun, and Barack still found his way to be mentioned in the article about the girl’s vacation. Nonetheless, Barack was pathetic, but that’s nothing new considering he went on an ‘apology tour’ during his Presidency.

The Daily Mail captured Malia and Michelle Obama in photographs as they pranced around Miami, hitting up elegant restaurants and flaunting their body in bathing suits while the taxpayer-funded security loathed behind begrudgingly. The article spoke about what the Obama girls were wearing, where they were going, and it was quite stalkerish. The job of a paparazzi to legally stalk people while they’re doing things is creepy. But then we bring it back to Barack Obama and his chat about his daughter, and that’s where it becomes strange.

Daily Mail reported:
“The former first lady also sported a long white blouse, a bandanna and large fold hoop earrings for the outing. Malia was looking similarly casual alongside her mother in a tan hoodie over her swimsuit, of which just her black bikini bottoms were visible. The tall teen toted in her hands a pair of white sneakers and her iPhone with a charger. She also was carrying a hefty-looking book – perhaps a bit of holiday break homework from Harvard University, where Malia is due to return later this month.

The ladies looked as though they didn’t have a care in the world, appearing as though the post-White House life suits them just fine.
The day at the beach appeared to be all about girl time as former president Barack Obama was nowhere to be seen. The former first lady also sported a long white blouse, a bandanna and large fold hoop earrings for the outing. Malia was looking similarly casual alongside her mother in a tan hoodie over her swimsuit, of which just her black bikini bottoms were visible.

The day at the beach appeared to be all about girl time as former president Barack Obama was nowhere to be seen.”

The Daily Mail spoke about the details of the girl’s vacation before it transitioned into what Barack Obama was up to and talking about. He was babbling on about his talk with Letterman, and that’s where it became ‘pathetic’ and readers must have become a bit creeped out. Obama’s chat with Letterman was a drooling confession to his pathetic self, something many readers have known about since watching the former President rule the greatest country in the world with no guts, glory, or manhood that fellow men would look up to.

Daily Mail continued:
“He discussed her move-in day with David Letterman on the talk show legend’s new Netflix project My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman.

Obama told him that he speaks with his daughter regularly because he is ‘pathetic,’ adding President Barack Obama said he was a wreck when he dropped his daughter Malia off at Harvard University. The 44th commander-in-chief discussed move-in day when he appeared as the first guest on David Letterman’s new Netflix talk show ‘My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman’.

Obama then described how he speaks with the 19-year-old regularly because he’s ‘pathetic’.

‘It was like open-heart surgery man,’ Obama told Letterman of moving his oldest daughter into her college dorm in August 2017.

‘And it was was interesting to see how everybody handled things differently. Michelle had a cleaning glove and was scouring the bathroom…Sasha tries to be cool because she didn’t want to admit that she was going to miss her sister so she was helping make the bed and fold clothes. I was basically useless.”

Useless? Pathetic? Why don’t they tell us something we don’t know? It’s peculiar to describe yourself as inadequate or pathetic. That’s not what people want to hear considering this was the 44th President of the United States. Former Presidents aren’t supposed to be pathetic. They’re supposed to be leaders and not weaklings bowing down to their daughters. How can she look up to him if he’s self-professed as pathetic?

That was a bizarre conversation with Letterman.
