tearing it back down after building it back up. nothing learned, nothing gained in ferguson or across america


Some protesters watch as other protesters and police exchange lobs of fireworks and smoke grenades across South Florissant Road Saturday night May 30, 2020.

Businesses trashed, burned, jobs that were alive during a virus pandemic are now gone. This isn’t 2014 Ferguson, this is 2020 Ferguson. The questions are the same! The answers are the same. The rhetoric has not changed, we hear the same discussions. In reality NOTHING has been learned, nothing has been gained. We continue on a down hill spiral.

Ferguson set the blueprint for protesting and spinning it to rioting 6 years ago, and these protesting/rioting groups (Antifa and BLM) learned well. We see it in Minneapolis, New York, Louisville, Atlanta, Chicago, LA, Seattle, St. Louis…………nearly all the big cities across America.

I have been slow to blame Democrats for the destruction, the idea that Democrats want to tear down America……..lead it to a 3rd world country. But, I was awake at 1:30 to 2:00 AM Central Time last evening (actually early morning), that is 2:30 to 3:00 AM Eastern Time/NEW YORK TIME. America’s largest police force was NOWHERE to be seen while looters (criminal thugs) were going into and back out of Chanel and other businesses carrying merchandise after breaking out (vandalizing) windows. They weren’t even rushing to get away, they could not have been more casual. It is as if they knew the cops weren’t coming. They were right, they never did. The thugs, which included blacks, whites and Asians gleefully stole the night away. Where was this bragging ass mayor of New York (De Blasio), bailing his daughter out of jail perhaps? She was arrested on Sunday during the protests/violence. It isn’t just/all outsiders to blame. I guess the good mayor was going around asking people to coronavirus mask on! He was more concerned of that than saving businesses. By the way, the businesses were an easier mark because most were still closed due to the virus. It was De Blasio and the greatest police force in the world’s responsibility to protect these businesses. They did not, there was little to no attempt. Maybe there is something to the Democratic Party standing by planning, watching and praying for destruction of our cities and country.

PALE FACES WANT TO CHANGE YOUR INDIAN TEAM NAME


Atlanta Braves, are you going to change your name because of a few loud mouths?   Cleveland Indians, Chicago Blackhawks are you taking the logos off your jerseys?   The Washington Redskins, the only reason this is an issue now is location, location, location.   Harry Pale Face Reid and a few other no name politicians are trying to pressure  the team owner.    Quite honestly, I’d just tell them all to go to hell and not worry about it, when was last time any of them accomplished anything they set out to do, especially for a greater cause.

Don’t you just love how so few know whats best for everyone else?  Does anyone really know how the Native Americans really feel about having  Indian names/terms as team mascots, logos etc…?  No, they don’t, unless they actually took the question to the Authentic Americans.   I do know just by listening to and reading responses from Native Americans, they have mixed opinions just as the rest of the nation has an opinion on anti-gun laws.   Those pushing anti-gun laws are actually a minority.   53% oppose anti-gun laws, that is 53% of those that were polled.   But that is another article.  My point is the question on Indian mascots is as much a mixed topic as is other controversial topics in our society.  I am tired of a minority in this country getting their way only because they are voicing a protest.  They have nothing better to do ………?   Put your time to better use, go form a human chain at our southern border to hold back the illegals.

Getting back to the mascots; the Atlanta, Chicago and Cleveland fans are proud of their names, who and what they represent.   Players wear the logos with pride, not shame or ridicule.  There is no hate!  Most of these names represent strength and honor.  The word “Redskin” was even referred to by Native Americans themselves.  There is nothing offensive about calling a helicopter an Apache or Blackhawk, its fast attacking with power.   That should be flattering, only the think tank liberals would make it offensive.  I guess pirates and buccaneers around the world are offended too, will they be next? Where does it all end?

Harry Reid and others protesting need to spend their energy on more important issues.   Being politically correct is incorrect.  With some of the problems we face today, this is an issue?

For the record, I have Indian blood, though watered down,  Chief BlackHawk of the Sauk was my Great X 4 grandfather.  Of all that I have read and know about him, he would be proud to have his image on the front of  a teams shirt.
