Opinion/Analysis: Biden Would Prefer You Obey the Law, But You Know, Whatever

What kinds of political vultures sit around bobbing their nasty little heads in search of rotten carrion after a human catastrophe? Well, Democrats, of course! (Joe Biden is the first vulture in history to get hair implants on his pale, beady little head. Which only makes him look even more unfit for civilized company.) Emerging from the worst economic collapse in U.S. history, the country last month posted the largest job expansion in U.S. history. But that was nothing according to Mr. Biden, who, along with President Barack Obama, presided over the slowest economic recovery in U.S. history. “There’s no victory to be celebrated,” complained Mr. Biden. “We are still down nearly 15 million jobs and the pandemic is getting worse, not better,” he said in a scripted, recorded video released by his campaign. Again, this from the guy who oversaw the slowest recovery in U.S. history talking about the fastest recovery. You start to see a pattern emerging here? In this titanic struggle between humans and the Wuhan Virus, these people are rooting for the pandemic. Anything for their own personal, political gain. In other words, more dead Americans mean more roadkill for them. And while they are at it, why not gin up some riots. After all, these are the very same people who think nothing of stoking racial discord for their own benefit. Loot some stores, firebomb some police stations and terrorize people in their homes. Just more dead people for them to pick through! The lawless governor of Virginia has conspired with the lawless mayor of Richmond to join the riots by pulling down statues on public property that hurt their feelings. Actually, these statues don’t hurt Gov. Ralph Northam’s feelings. He could not care less about anyone’s feelings. He just needs to get ahead of the nearest mob. Remember, this is the same guy who dresses up in blackface or wears a KKK hood just for fun. But he cannot remember which. Either way, the picture of him in blackface or a KKK hood is all he or his family will ever be remembered for. Which perhaps is why he has such lust in his heart to take down the statues of men who were loved and revered in their own time. It is a statue fixation he has. Compensating for something. His own inner demons. Neither Mr. Northam nor the Richmond mayor were on hand as the statues were removed by crane this week along Monument Avenue. City Councilman Mike Jones attended the removal of the statue of Stonewall Jackson. “It’s dope to see African Americans assist in taking them down but we didn’t have a voice in putting them up,” Mr. Jones told a blogger from a website called Courthouse News Service. “They came down because black, white, Latinx — we all came together to make it happen.” (Quick research on the Internet revealed “Latinx” is a newly invented “gender neutral” term for Latinos and Latinas. In addition to history and statues and freedom, our Virtue Czars are also determined to tear down gender.) Anyone hoping that Mr. Biden — once he is done picking through the carcasses of the cratered economy and pandemic — might stand up for the rule of law would be hopelessly mistaken. Asked about violent mobs tearing down statues, Mr. Biden said, “It’s always better to do it peacefully, but …” “But???” Peacefully? Or lawfully? Oh, never mind. There is a “distinction,” he said, between monuments to Thomas Jefferson and statues lawfully erected in the South to remember Confederate generals after the Civil War. “I think it’s better,” he said, if the monuments are taken down lawfully. “But I can understand the anger and anguish that people feel by having for years and years been under the statue of Robert E. Lee, if you’re an African American,” he said. “But don’t expect if you have sitting in front of you after all these years and we finally — finally — are going through another phase of maybe responding to the systemic racism in America and what we’ve seen happen, is don’t be surprised if someone pulls down the statue of [Confederate President] Jefferson Davis.” In other words, the man who wants to be commander-in-chief and oversee the Department of Justice — the highest executive in the land — would prefer that people obey the law and not tear down statues. But, you know, whatever. Joe Biden may be a lot of things, but one thing he ain’t is Atticus Finch. UPDATE: I would like to issue a formal apology to vultures. They provide a real service to humankind and do not deserve to be compared to Joe Biden or any other Democrat, regardless of whether they have hair plugs or not.

Ouch!  That brutal smack-down of Joe Biden, and company, was courtesy of veteran columnist Charles Hurt.  Charlie can be reached at churt@washingtontimes.com or @charleshurt on Twitter.    Excellent!!     🙂

Trump, in fiery Mount Rushmore address, decries rise of ‘far-left fascism,’ calls on Americans to rise up

Speaking after the legendary U.S. Navy Blue Angels roared overhead, President Trump ushered in the July 4th weekend Friday night at Mount Rushmore in South Dakota with a full-throated condemnation of “far-left fascism” and a defense of “Judeo-Christian principles.” “This monument will never be desecrated,” Trump declared to cheers and applause. “These heroes will never be defaced. Their legacy will never, ever be destroyed. Their achievements will never be forgotten. And Mount Rushmore will stand forever as an eternal tribute to our forefathers and to our freedom.” The president asserted that recent attacks on the nation’s monuments, alongside “cancel culture” and the rise of the Marxist ideology of the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement, were symptoms of a “left-wing cultural revolution” that was threatening to “overthrow the American Revolution.” BLM explicitly advocates the destruction of the “nuclear family structure,” which Trump said was in fact the “bedrock of American life.” “We only kneel to Almighty God,” Trump remarked, in a clear shot at athletes who kneel in protest during the national anthem. “We will not be intimidated by bad, evil people. It will not happen.” “We are the country of Andrew Jackson, Ulysses S. Grant, and Frederick Douglass,” Trump said. “We are the land of Wild Bill Hickock and Buffalo Bill Cody. We are the nation that gave rise to the Wright Brothers, the Tuskegee Airmen — Harriet Tubman, Clara Barton, Jesse Owens, George Patton — General George Patton — the great Louie Armstrong, Alan Shepard, Elvis Presley, and Mohammad Ali. And only America could have produced them all. No other place.” Americans are the ones, Trump added, “that put up the Hoover Dam, laid down the highways, and sculpted the skyline of Manhattan. We are the people who dreamed a spectacular dream — it was called: Las Vegas, in the Nevada desert; who built up Miami from the Florida marsh; and who carved our heroes into the face of Mount Rushmore. Americans harnessed electricity, split the atom, and gave the world the telephone and the Internet. We settled the Wild West, won two World Wars, landed American astronauts on the Moon — and one day very soon, we will plant our flag on Mars.” The United States “gave the world the poetry of Walt Whitman, the stories of Mark Twain, the songs of Irving Berlin, the voice of Ella Fitzgerald, the style of Frank Sinatra — the comedy of Bob Hope, the power of the Saturn V rocket, the toughness of the Ford F-150 — and the awesome might of the American aircraft carriers,” Trump said. “Americans must never lose sight of this miraculous story.” “We will state the truth in full, without apology: We declare that the United States of America is the most just and exceptional nation ever to exist on Earth,” Trump said. “We are proud of the fact that our country was founded on Judeo-Christian principles, and we understand that these values have dramatically advanced the cause of peace and justice throughout the world.” Trump, who separately praised police officers and vowed to defend the Second Amendment, then announced plans to create “a new monument to the giants of our past.” He said he would sign an executive order to establish the “National Garden of American Heroes” — a “vast outdoor park” to feature the statues of the “greatest Americans to ever live.” After Trump spoke, the White House released text of an executive order establishing the garden, which expressly notes that it will include only lifelike representations and eschew “modernist or abstract interpretations.” A preliminary list of people to be honored in the garden includes John Adams, Susan B. Anthony, Henry Clay, Davy Crockett, MLK, Amelia Earhart, Benjamin Franklin, Ronald Reagan, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Antonin Scalia, Orville and Wilbur Wright, Douglas MacArthur, George Patton, Jackie Robinson, Christopher Columbus, Junipero Serra, and Betsy Ross In his address, Trump characterized endemic efforts to terminate and humiliate dissent as a form of “totalitarianism” and an “attack on our magnificent liberty” — and promised that it “will be stopped very quicky.” “One of their political weapons is ‘Cancel Culture’ — driving people from their jobs, shaming dissenters, and demanding total submission from anyone who disagrees,” Trump said. “This is the very definition of totalitarianism, and it is completely alien to our culture and our values, and it has absolutely no place in the United States of America. This attack on our liberty, our magnificent liberty, must be stopped, and it will be stopped very quickly. We will expose this dangerous movement, protect our nation’s children, end this radical assault, and preserve our beloved American way of life.” The “violent mayhem we have seen in our streets and cities,” which are “run by liberal Democrats in every case,” Trump said, “is the predictable result of years of extreme indoctrination and bias in education, journalism and other cultural institutions. Against every law of society and nature, our children are taught in school to hate their own country and to believe that the men and women who built it weren’t heroes, but villains. The radical view of American history is a web of lies.”

Poll: 3-in-4 Voters, Majority of Black Americans Oppose Tearing Down Mount Rushmore

The overwhelming majority of likely U.S. voters, including a majority of black Americans, oppose the tearing down of the Mount Rushmore National Memorial featuring Presidents George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln, a poll finds. While rioters, as well as some Republican and Democrat lawmakers, have sought to remove monuments, statues, and flags associated with the Civil War and the nation’s presidents, the overwhelming majority of Americans say they are opposed to such plans. The latest Rasmussen Reports survey finds 75 percent of likely U.S. voters oppose closing or changing Mt. Rushmore in Keystone, South Dakota. Less than 20 percent said they support the removal of Mt. Rushmore. By a 56-percent majority, black Americans said they oppose tearing down Mt. Rushmore, while only about 35 percent said they support removing the monument. Likewise, more than six-in-ten Democrats, 76 percent of swing voters, 82 percent of white Americans, and 88 percent of Republican voters said they oppose tearing down Mt. Rushmore. The Rasmussen Reports survey also asked likely voters if they opposed or supported removing statues in honor of Presidents George Washington and Thomas Jefferson from public places. More than 70 percent of all likely voters said they opposed tearing down statues dedicated to the two men. Majorities in every racial, income, age, gender, political, and educational attainment group said they oppose tearing down statues and buildings honoring Washington and Jefferson — including 54 percent of black Americans, 78 percent of white Americans, 57 percent of Democrats, 83 percent of Republicans, and 75 percent of swing voters. For years, Americans by huge majorities have opposed a post-structuralist agenda to tear down and remake the nation’s historical monuments and statues. In a 2017 Rasmussen Reports survey, nearly 90 percent of Americans said they oppose tearing down monuments honoring former presidents. The poll surveyed 1,000 likely U.S. voters from June 29 to 30 and has a margin of error of +/- 3 percentage points.

The idea of desecrating, or tearing down, Mount Rushmore is a sentiment held only by these who just hate America in general, and those idiot millennial punks who have been bain-washed by their Marxist teachers into thinking that our history is evil and racist all around…and who never were really taught American civics in school.  Glad the silent majority is still opposed to tearing down our history.  But, that silent majority now more than ever needs to stand up and fight back against these punks who are trying to tear our country down.

Coulter: Great Moments in Racism — the Dash Cam Tapes

If you were watching MSNBC last Sunday, you may have seen Imani Perry, professor of African-American studies at Princeton University, and wondered, as I did, Why do I know that name? Professor Perry’s delightfully original point was that we need to “think in serious contemplative ways about the depth of American inequality.” So perhaps we know her from her incisive commentary! I certainly haven’t heard anyone talk about American inequality. It really made me think. But then I suddenly realized it’s that Imani Perry! The one who nearly destroyed a policeman’s life by falsely accusing him of racism! Back in February 2016, Perry launched a series of tweets, alleging the following: — She was “arrested in Princeton Township for a single parking ticket three years ago.” — She was cuffed — FOR A PARKING TICKET — and not allowed to make a phone call “so that someone would know where I was.” — “I was afraid,” she wrote. “Many women who look like me have a much more frightening end to such arrests.” Oh my gosh, she could have been killed! — She was “working to move from being shaken to renewing my commitment to the struggle against racism & carcerality.” Naturally, her story became instant international news. The president of Princeton leapt to her defense, firing off a letter to the chief of police, demanding an investigation. (I know Perry is a professor, but you’d think that, by now, more people would say, Let’s wait for the facts.) Perry attributed the universal acceptance of her story to her “small build” and her association with “elite universities” such as Princeton. Just a thought, but it might also be because she’s black. The Princeton police spent several days investigating before finally releasing the dashcam footage. I’m hoping they dragged it out to allow public outrage to reach maximum velocity. Perry wasn’t arrested “for a single parking ticket three years ago.” After being stopped for going 67 mph in a 45 mph speed zone, officers ran her name and discovered her license had been suspended. She was arrested for driving with a suspended license. The officer was almost comically polite to the professor. He gently explained to Perry that because of her suspended license, “What you’re going to have to do is come with us, it’s $130, so if you have that money we’ll be able to post and we’ll be able to get you right back out.” He offered to drop her at the university, saying, “You really shouldn’t be driving because of your suspended license.” He informed her that police are required to cuff anyone being transported to the station and assured her that no one would have to know. As for not being allowed to make a phone call, he clearly told her that once they got to the station, “You can make as many phone calls and texts as you want.” A policeman was kind to her, so Perry turned around and accused him of racism, secure in the knowledge that no one would dare challenge whatever she said. It would have been firing offense for him, but not for her. She is still gainfully employed as a Princeton professor — and a sought-after guest on MSNBC and NPR! (It must be because of her “small build.”) There are dozens of these cases. Tweet me your favorites! Here’s another, from one of our blessed immigrants, Minati Roychoudhuri, professor at Capital Community College in Connecticut. (Really! That’s not one of my proposed new names for Yale, currently named for a slave trader.) In 2015, Roychoudhuri (B.A., M.A., Utkal University, India) wrote a letter to the commissioner of public safety, as well as “the Senator and Legislator of my constituency” (she teaches English), claiming a policeman had racially profiled her. Her letter said: “The officer did not give me any reason as to why had stopped me. His asking if I could speak English shows that he had racially profiled me and was not able to give me a concrete reason for stopping me. Further, the officer had checked ‘Hispanic’ in the race category in the infraction ticket.” The professor also noted that, “I teach about diversity and the negative impact of racial profiling, I have now become a target of the same insidious behavior! It is easy to connect the dots with the nationwide racial profiling which has led to serious consequences.” (It’s such a boon to have immigrants teaching about the horrors of “racial profiling” in America because we can’t get anyone to do that!) Then police released the dashcam footage. Below are relevant portions from the transcript. I didn’t include the part where the officer asked Roychoudhuri if she spoke English because he never did that. It was a bald-faced lie. Officer: Hi ma’am, do you know why I’m stopping you today? Roychoudhuri: No. Officer: OK. There’s that big gore area with white lines painted across it and you cut in front of it, in front of me, thinking it’s a lane or something. You have to wait until it’s a dotted white line. License and registration. … Officer: Ma’am. So I wrote you the infraction for that improper lane change that you did. Roychoudhuri: Please, you know, I probably crossed over there, and that’s why I did it. … Obviously I did that. … My (record) is absolutely clean. Officer: OK. So I wrote you an infraction for that improper lane change that you did. Roychoudhuri: OK. Officer: The answer date is on the front of it and the instructions are on the back of it. Roychoudhuri: Wait, what? Officer: It’s a mail-in infraction. All you have to do is mail in, either a check or money order, and mail it in. Roychoudhuri: OK. Officer: All right. Roychoudhuri: Thank you. Guess who’s still teaching at Capital Community College and paid by Connecticut taxpayers? Our sacramental immigrant! (NOTE TO MSNBC: Roychoudhuri would make another excellent guest to discuss racism in America.) After the 2014 killing of Mike Brown in Ferguson, Missouri — a justified killing according to everyone, including Obama’s Department of Justice — the big demand was that police be required to wear bodycams. OOPS! That was a miscalculation. Turns out body cameras are the best thing that ever happened to cops. Which reminds me: The public has still not seen the bodycam footage from the officers arresting George Floyd, explaining how he ended up on the ground. Maybe we should wait for the facts.

Agreed..  Thanks to conservative firebrand Ann Coulter for the common-sense smack upside the head.

Teen Vogue Tweets ‘Welcome to Marx!’

In a bizarre move, a major magazine designed to influence an entire generation of teenagers — Teen Vogue — tweeted “Welcome to Marx!,” promoting a 2018 article hailing Karl Marx as a “legend” and adding that the communist philosopher’s ideas “are more prevalent than you might realize.” “You may have come across communist memes on social media,” begins the 2018 Teen Vogue piece. “The man, the meme, the legend behind this trend is Karl Marx, who developed the theory of communism, which advocates for workers’ control over their labor (instead of their bosses).” But of course, anyone who has studied communism understands that the results of the ideology being put into practice isn’t what anyone in good conscience would refer to as “workers’ control over their labor,” but rather, a worldwide death toll of roughly 100 million. The Teen Vogue piece says the Communist Manifesto by Karl Marx is taught in schools, and that Marx is one of the most assigned “economists” in U.S. college courses. So Teen Vogue sat down with two educators and interviewed them regarding how they teach their students about “the legacy of Marx’s ideas and how they’re relevant to the current political climate.” One of the educators the magazine interviewed was former Drexel University professor George Ciccariello-Maher, who “challenges his students to envision a society without capitalism,” and who also said in 2016 that all he wants for Christmas is “white genocide” — which is actually fitting for someone who flirts with Marxism, as “everyone who advocated genocide called himself a socialist,” according to George Watson’s 1998 book, The Lost Literature of Socialism. “Marx says we live under capitalism [but] capitalism has not always existed,” said Ciccariello-Maher to Teen Vogue. “It’s something that came into being and something that, as a result, just on a logical level, could disappear, could be overthrown, could be abolished, could be irrelevant.” “There’s this myth of the free market, but Marx shows very clearly that capitalism emerged through a state of violence,” added Ciccariello-Maher, ironically. Teen Vogue ominously went on to say that “many Marxists” believe “the current socioeconomic system is precarious and can be overthrown at any time.” The magazine also interviewed public high school teacher Mark Brunt, who said that he likes to do “a little role-playing” with his students, where he plays the bourgeoisie, and his students play the proletariat. “I do a little role-playing with [my class],” Brunt told Teen Vogue. “[I tell them,] I’m the boss, you’re my workers, and you want to try to take me down. I have the money. I own the factory. I control the police. I control the military. I control the government. What do you guys have?” Brunt goes on to explain that his students usually react by blinking at him and appearing clueless, until he hints that they have one thing that he, as “the boss,” doesn’t have. “It’s always just one student, whose hand shoots up and goes, ‘We outnumber you!’” added Brunt. Brunt said he goes on to introduce his students to Marx’s definition of the “proletariat” and the “bourgeoisie,” adding that the tension between the two groups make up the class conflict, or class struggle. Why Teen Vogue decided to dredge up this piece now remains unclear. But one can only assume what the magazine — which claims that “the proletariat will come together to overthrow the bourgeoisie and ultimately, win” — is suggesting.

Indeed!  Holy crap!!  If you, or your teen, subscribes to this rag, cancel it!  Communism is responsible for the slaughter of MILLIONS of people in (the now former) Soviet Union, China, North Korea, Cuba and elsewhere.  And, wherever it has been tried, it has FAILED economically.  Heck, Stalin murdered over 10 MILLION of his own people alone.  Why academia still looks up to that failed ideology, is beyond me.  Its really a failure of education.  These uber-liberal professors with their PhDs, who couldn’t begin to get a job out in the real world, use their positions in academia to brainwash “young skulls full of mush”…and that’s how this stuff is still perpetrated.  This article terrifying, and is a HUGE wakeup call to all parents.  Thanks to Alana Mastrangelo for bringing this to our attention!  You can follow Alana on Twitter at @ARmastrangelo, and on Instagram.

Editorial: The use and abuse of history: Removal of statues means historically rudderless America

Two days ago, the mayor of Detroit ordered a bust of Christopher Columbus removed from its pedestal. It was a peaceful removal for the Italian-born discoverer of the new world. After all, last week in Boston he was beheaded and in Richmond he was pushed into a lake. One supposes he is used to the harsh treatment. In many cities and states, his namesake holiday has long been replaced with Indigenous Peoples Day. In a few decades, it is not inconceivable he will be relegated to a proverbial footnote of history. Of course, who or what Columbus will be a footnote to is now a live question. Statues of Confederate generals are also being torn down and desecrated. They were on the losing side of history, so many Americans proclaim they won’t be missed. Since they remind us of an ugly time in our past, better to eradicate their presence altogether. Then it will be as if it never happened. Or so the logic would appear to run. But wait! After wiping out the leading lights of the Confederacy, it seems that Northerners, too, have a little housekeeping to undertake. This week, Boston Mayor Marty Walsh supported a circulating petition to disappear (let’s not sugarcoat matters) a statue of Abraham Lincoln standing before a freed, kneeling African-American. The petition reads: “My name is Tory Bullock and I’ve been watching this man on his knees since I was a kid. It’s supposed to represent freedom but instead represents us still beneath someone else. I would always ask myself “If he’s free why is he still on his knees?” No kid should have to ask themselves that question anymore.” Of course, the erstwhile slave is not kneeling before or even looking at President Lincoln. He is staring off into the distance, in a position, shackles now broken, to rise. The scene, seen from a perspective different from Mr. Bullock’s, is of hope and vitality. Lincoln is less the author of the slave’s freedom than a midwife. And in a sense, he is already forgotten as the rising figure looks out and away into the distance, expectant and resolute. What will happen next is easy to predict. Statues and depictions of the Founding Fathers will come down. It does not matter if you authored the Declaration of Independence. You’re out. It will take a little while, but the will and hatred on the progressive left is strong. Their ability to instill knee-jerk fear in average Americans is pernicious (see the Mayor of Boston), and common-sense and knowledge of history has so departed any would-be opponents that in the coming decades an outright revision of American history — both as it’s symbolized in statues and memorials and as its published in books and taught in our schools — will occur unimpeded. It won’t stop with the Founding Fathers. Anyone, of any gender, found with a less-than-ultra-progressive stamped passport is on the chopping block. This is a race to the bottom. And in the end, we will be left with a historically rudderless America. Gone will be any shared sense of purpose or pride. In its place we will find new totems, decided by those in power. The wholesale eradication of a person’s (and a people’s) history is a tactic most commonly seen in authoritarian countries. Mao and Stalin and Castro understood this well. If you go back far enough, these are the great teachers of America’s progressive left. They are loathe to admit it, but it’s right out of the totalitarian playbook. And now that playbook is being put to use in our country. If this does not sit well with you, if you sense the Founders of this country, imperfect though they were in private life, nonetheless created a republic with good and true ideals to aspire toward — timeless principles like “all men are created equal” and the “self-evident” notion “all men are created equal” — and that these ideals are worth preserving, then now is the time to push back against the progressive agenda. In a few years, it will be too late.

Agreed..  Thanks to the editorial staff at The Washington Times for the timely piece.  This whole purging of our history is very very dangerous.  Its what the Germans and Japanese have done with respect to their involvement in WWII.  History is what happened; NOT what we wished had happened, don’t want to talk about because it hurts our precious tender feelings.  The Civil War happened.  To those who have a problem with that fact,  get the hell over it!  We need to fight to ensure these statues of Christopher Columbus, Confederate generals and so on stay standing.  They are reminders of what happened and where we came from…and in many respects, how far we’ve come.  And, we need to revisit American civics in school.  If you have kids,  a MUST read is “The Politically Incorrect Guide to American History” by Thomas Woods.  Its all the stuff you weren’t taught in junior high, and high school from our country’s founding through about the Bill Clinton presidency.  You can get it at Amazon for under $20 new…and it’s worth it.

Boy Scouts to require diversity and inclusion merit badge for rank of Eagle Scout

The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) announced Monday it will implement a specific “diversity and inclusion merit badge” in support of the Black Lives Matter movement that will be required to achieve the rank of Eagle Scout going forward. In a letter to scouting families, the organization said it will also require diversity and inclusion training for all BSA employees starting on July 1, and a review of property names, events, and insignia, will be conducted “to build on and enhance the organization’s nearly 30-year ban on [the] use of the Confederate flag.” “The Boy Scouts of America stands with Black families and the Black community because we believe that Black Lives Matter,” the letter said. “This is not a political issue; it is a human rights issue and one we all have a duty to address.” The BSA used the term “murders” when discussing George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, and Breonna Taylor. Their deaths ignited recent protests against systemic racism and police brutality in the U.S. The organization said all those not named were are equally important, adding it hears “the anguish, feel[s] the heartbreak, and join[s] the country’s resolve to do better.” “As our country reckons with racial injustice, we all must consider our role and our failures and commit to meaningful action,” the BSA said. “There is no place for racism – not in Scouting and not in our communities. Racism will not be tolerated.” The organization said the new diversity and inclusion badge will build on components within existing merit badges that require Scouts to learn about and engage with other groups and cultures. To ensure diversity and inclusion are “engrained at every level” the BSA will also be reviewing “every element of our programs.” The changes come nearly four months after the BSA filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection early Tuesday, halting the hundreds of lawsuits it faced after decades of sexual abuse claims within the 110-year-old organization over the years. Sexual abuse settlements had reportedly strained the Boy Scouts’ finances, with states passing laws last year so victims from long-ago abuse can sue for damages. On Monday, the BSA said it wasn’t as brave as it should have been in the past, but said, as scouts, “we must always stand for what is right.”

And the BSA continues it’s downward spiral…  Of COURSE there shouldn’t be any discrimination on the basis of race in the Boy Scouts.  That’s always been the case!   But, this over-the-top pandering to the latest politically correct racial trend is beyond ridiculous.  And a diversity brainwashing merit badge?!?!  Seriously?!?!?  Those things were for things like swimming, first aid, tying knots, etc.; NOT liberal social justice bs.  I was in Boy Scouts all the way from Cub Scouts, Webelos, and then Boy Scouts…was even in the (once upon a time) elite “Order of the Arrow.”  Just glad I was out LONG before all of this nonsense started.  If you’re looking for an alternative to the BSA, that’s more like it used to be before all of this politically correct bs destroyed it, try Trail Life.  https://www.traillifeusa.com/

Poll: Americans Believe Confederate Statues Should Remain Standing by 12-Point Margin

A greater percentage of U.S. registered voters believe Confederate statues, which have been targeted by protesters in recent weeks, should remain standing despite activists’ demands to remove them, a Morning Consult poll released this week revealed. The survey, taken June 6-7, showed that a greater number of Americans believe Confederate statues should remain standing, 44 percent, as opposed to the 32 percent who say they should be removed. Twenty-three percent expressed no opinion on the matter. The fundings reflect a slight shift in opinion over the last three years. In August 2017, 52 percent of voters indicated that the statues should be left alone, with just over a quarter, 26 percent, indicating otherwise. However, Morning Consult reported that the purported increase in support over the years is largely driven by Democrats: The rise in support for removing the statues was driven by Democrats, a majority of whom now take that position, and independents, who still favor keeping those statues standing by a 10-point margin. Eleven percent of GOP voters say the statues should be removed, virtually unchanged since 2017. The vast majority of Republicans, 71 percent, believe the Confederate statues should remain standing, whereas the majority of Democrats, 53 percent, believe they should be taken down. Forty percent of independents believe they should remain standing, with 30 percent vying for their removal and 30 percent expressing no opinion. The survey was taken among “roughly” 1,900 voters, with a margin of error of +/- two percent. The survey comes as protesters vandalize and, in some cases, tear down Confederate statues and others they deem offensive, including statues of Christopher Columbus. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has also embraced the calls for change, requesting in a letter on Wednesday the removal of Confederate statues occupying the U.S. Capitol, or as she called them, “monuments to men who advocated cruelty and barbarism to achieve such a plainly racist end.” “Monuments to men who advocated cruelty and barbarism to achieve such a plainly racist end are a grotesque affront to these ideals,” she said in a letter to Committee Chair Roy Blunt (R-MO) and Vice Chair Zoe Lofgren (D-CA). “Their statues pay homage to hate, not heritage. They must be removed.” Interestingly, Pelosi has remained silent on her own father’s role in the dedication of a Confederate statue in Baltimore’s Wyman Park in 1948. Her father, Thomas D’Alesandro, Jr., oversaw the dedication of such a statue in Baltimore’s Wyman Park — the Stonewall Jackson and Robert E. Lee Monument — as mayor of the city in 1948. At the time, the Speaker’s father said people could look to Jackson’s and Lee’s lives as inspiration and urged Americans to “emulate Jackson’s example and stand like a stone wall against aggression in any form that would seek to destroy the liberty of the world.” World Wars I and II found the North and South fighting for a common cause, and the generalship and military science displayed by these two great men in the War between the States lived on and were applied in the military plans of our nation in Europe and the Pacific areas,” D’Alesandro said at the dedication ceremony, as detailed by the Baltimore Sun. He continued: Today with our nation beset by subversive groups and propaganda which seeks to destroy our national unity, we can look for inspiration to the lives of Lee and Jackson to remind us to be resolute and determined in preserving our sacred institutions … remain steadfast in our determination to preserve freedom, not only for ourselves, but for other liberty-loving nations who are striving to preserve their national unity as free nations. Pelosi’s office did not return Breitbart News’s request for comment.

HAHAHAHA!!!  Doh!!  Hey Nancy!  How ’bout them apples??  That lying, hypocritical windbag just got BUSTED!  Some enterprising reporter needs to ask her these questions on camera, and see how she tries to dance around it.  Of course that won’t happen, because she’s a Democrat.  They’ll just look the other way, and let her get away with that. Typical..   Of course her at The Daily Buzz, we are right there with the majority of those registered voters and don’t believe we should be tearing down statues or monuments to any historical figures on either side.  Those that want one of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (“MLK”) should have those statues.  And, those descendants of Confederate Generals and other figures from that timeframe (especially in southern states that were part of the Confederacy during that time of our history), should have every right to protect and keep those statues and monuments.  History is what happened; NOT what we wished had happened, or that hurt our tender feelings.  People who have a problem with the facts of our history really need to get over it and move on.  Same is true for the renaming of Army posts in our southern states.  That is beyond ridiculous, and we support President Trump’s position NOT to do that.  Shame on our legislators of BOTH parties who are caving to pc police and are trying to rename those historical posts.

Ricky Gervais mocks celebs in the ‘I Take Responsibility’ anti-racism PSA

Comedian Ricky Gervais had some fun at the expense of the A-listers who appeared in a new public service announcement attempting to combat racism. n a video for the “I Take Responsibility” campaign, multiple high-profile white celebrities are featured taking “responsibility for turning the racist tide in America,” denouncing police brutality and committing to learning more “about issues facing the black community.” Some of big-name performers include Julianne Moore, Sarah Paulson, Aaron Paul, Kristen Bell, Debra Messing, Justin Theroux, Stanley Tucci and Ke$ha. “Black people are being slaughtered in the streets, killed in their own homes. These are our brothers and sisters, our friends, our family. We are done watching them die. We are no longer bystanders. We will not be idle. Enough is enough.” The video also alludes to the recent deaths of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor and Atatiana Jefferson, which have sparked global protests in support of the Black Lives Matter movement. “Going for a jog should not be a death sentence,” the celebrities continue. “Sleeping in your own home should not be a death sentence. Playing video games with your nephew should not be a death sentence. Shopping in a store should not be a death sentence. Business as usual should not be life-threatening.” Gervais, however, took to Twitter with a zinger. “Terrible lack of diversity in this video,” the British comedian jokingly pointed out. Gervais, 58, isn’t afraid to skewer Hollywood. In January he sent shock waves through social media when he shaded a room full of A-listers at the Golden Globe Awards. Gervais’ message at the time was that many celebrities were being too preachy and were much too out of touch to speak on issues plaguing the common man. And in April the comedian slammed celebrities for their words of advice during the coronavirus outbreak. “I’ve got nothing against anyone being a celebrity or being famous,” Gervais said during an interview. “I think that people are just a bit tired of being lectured to. Now celebrities think: ‘The general public needs to see my face. They can’t get to the cinema – I need to do something.’ And it’s when you look into their eyes, you know that, even if they’re doing something good, they’re sort of thinking, ‘I could weep at what a good person I am.’ Oh dear.”

Ricky strikes again, and i’s a beautiful thing.  These self-important, self-righteous, nauseating liberal celebs drive us crazy with their sanctimonious bloviating.  Thanks Ricky!!       🙂

Gutfeld on the canceling of “Live PD”

“Live PD” has been pulled by the A&E network. The show was a hit, revealing an unspeakable truth: that cops are human. Maybe that’s why it was canceled, for showing the police as hardworking folks facing unpredictable and sometimes dangerous circumstances. And because that didn’t fit the current narrative, it got pulled. And this reveals that the real censorship doesn’t arrive via autocracy, but via the emasculation of network execs. Here’s an idea: replace “Live PD” with a show called “No PD.” Just show crimes committed without cops around. So will “Live PD” come back? Not when the media see police as somehow worse than criminals. And the crime of “Live PD” is showing the reality of policing ignored by other networks, where cops are either relentlessly heroic or horrifyingly bad. And so A&E cancels the show. Censorship out of fear. Do you know up to that up to 440,000 Americans die each year from preventable hospital errors? That’s the third-leading cause of death in the U.S. Shall we cancel “Grey’s Anatomy?” And cancel all those other hospital programs that show health care workers in an aspirational glow? And I say all of this knowing full well that “Live PD” was competition for my show Saturday nights. “Live PD” put up great numbers on Saturdays. I should be thrilled it got knocked out of the lineup. I could be No. 1. But that would be stupid and wrong. Because I may not be No. 1. I may be next.

Yeah… No kidding..  For over 20 years, the liberals have been trying to figure a way to censor Rush Limbaugh on AM radio.  As usual, Greg Gutfeld nails it.  That was adapted from Greg Gutfeld’s monologue (otherwise known as a “Gregologue”) on Thursday, June 11, 2020.
