Early Morning Triggers? Who Needs It?

Critical Race Theory is mass bigotry; nothing more.

The other day my significant other, known as a girlfriend, before the wokesters took over, sent me an article. It was about a bill being passed in Florida that, according to Leftists, represents an attempt to alleviate ‘discomfort’ for white people.

In Nearly Every Sentence

I read the article closely, denoting the bias in virtually every other sentence, and was perturbed. We had long ago agreed that we would not send triggering articles to each other, especially in the morning, without some kind of prior notice. I reminded her of our plan to explore issues one by one, together, sitting at the same computer, showing each other our sources, and intelligently discussing matters.

She wrote back to me, “So, are you saying that we cannot simply send information to each other when it becomes available?”

Well of course we can, but merely sending random articles early in the morning, on a variety of topics, each time one of us is triggered by something we encounter, was not my idea of methodically, sequentially approaching each issue and allowing for both sides to present their views.

CRT is Mass Bigotry; Nothing More

As a case in point, I explained, sending me an article with the title “Re: Florida Discomfort Bill,” does nothing to dissuade me that Critical Race Theory:

1) Represents bigotry towards whites in general (i.e. renown bigot Ibram Kendri is making a small fortune with his ‘lectures’ and ‘training sessions.’)

2) Is harmful to children, both black and white, essentially pitting them against each, and will cause decades of damage.

3) Polarizes an issue while leaving out other groups such as Hispanics and Asians, and first generation Africans and West Indians — who do rather well in America.

4) Ignores vast segments of history. For example, 1200+ white abolitionists were lynched for supporting Black rights and freedom issues.

5) Will historically be proven to be racial grift on a mass scale.

Can You Imagine

Suppose a movement was afoot that characterized American black culture as detrimental to society and, indeed, the Earth, and that Black people in general were at the root of all of social problems, not merely in the U.S, but worldwide.

I concluded by sending her an excerpt from a previous article I had written for Politicrossing: “Imagine the unending uproar if someone drew up a list of how hundreds of millions of black people all over the world could become ‘less black.’ The absurdity of regarding white people, hundreds of millions of them, as having a general set of characteristics, let alone having those characteristics be detrimental to society, is the grand facade of the ages.”

Pence v. Trump 2024? Former Veep Leaves the Door Open

WHOA!

Published

on

There has been an incredible amount of speculation as to whether or not Donald Trump will be again running for President in 2024, and there are a number of factors still at play that could create seismic shifts in the race to come.

For instance, if Trump’s former Vice President Mike Pence were to decide to run against him in 2024’s primary…

Mike Pence is not ruling out the possibility of going head-to-head with his old boss Donald Trump in a 2024 Republican presidential primary, a new report suggested on Monday.

‘We’ll go where we’re called,’ Pence told the New York Times when asked about the possible head-to-head.

‘That’s the way Karen and I have always approached these things.’

Trump was not thrilled with the idea.

Meanwhile Trump, despite not formally declaring a 2024 bid yet, has eyes on the competition – including Pence.

In a statement to DailyMail.com, his spokesman slammed his old deputy as ‘desperate’ and mocked him for trying to ‘chase’ his ‘lost relevance’ amid the former running mates’ latest divide over backing separate candidates in the Peach State’s gubernatorial election.

Former President Trump is said to be waiting until after the 2022 midterms to make an official announcement regarding 2024, but there have been plenty of hints regarding his potential campaign – the latest of which came from former First Lady Melania Trump.

Verdict Reached in First Russian War Crimes Trial

This is just the first of many, certainly.

Published

on

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has been a brutal one, and increasingly so as the Kremlin’s soldiers find themselves in more and more trouble of their own making.

As the war grows ever more impossible for Russia to win, the troops sent into Ukraine have been committing a series of worsening atrocities.  It’s terrorism at the least, (and very likely a full-fledge genocide), and it belies just how poorly things are going for Russia.

Now, in the first war crimes trial of the conflict, a verdict has been reached.

In the first of what could be a multitude of war crimes trials held by Ukraine, Russian Sgt. Vadim Shishimarin, 21, was sentenced for the killing of a 62-year-old man who was shot in the head in a village in the northeastern Sumy region in the opening days of the war.

Shishimarin, a member of a tank unit, had claimed he was following orders, and he apologized to the man’s widow in court.

His Ukraine-appointed defense attorney, Victor Ovsyanikov, argued his client had been unprepared for the “violent military confrontation” and mass casualties that Russian troops encountered when they invaded. He said he would appeal.

There was no doubt about the court’s legitimacy, either.

Ukrainian civil liberties advocate Volodymyr Yavorskyy said it was “an extremely harsh sentence for one murder during the war.” But Aarif Abraham, a British-based human rights lawyer, said the trial was conducted “with what appears to be full and fair due process,” including access to an attorney.

Given the sheer amount of heinous deeds the world has witnessed in Ukraine, there is no doubt that more war crimes trials will be coming.
