It’s ‘offensive’ to be black and conservative.

The Detroit school board is considering renaming Benjamin Carson High School because it is “offensive.”

The school was named for current HUD Secretary Ben Carson, renowned neurosurgeon.

In other words, it’s offensive to some to be a black man and hold conservative views.

From Daily Wire:

The board will seek comment over the next several months on whether to change Carson High, which was named for Dr. Ben Carson before he became active in politics, and well before he became an ally of President Donald Trump, something the Detroit School Board apparently doesn’t appreciate.

[…]

“Board member LaMar Lemmons had pushed to rename Carson school, which is named after the Housing and Urban Development secretary and former Republican presidential candidate who graduated from the district,” the Detroit News said.

“Lemmons cited the neurosurgeon’s name being added when the district was under an emergency financial manager, saying some residents objected to Carson representing the city,” they added, quoting Lemmons as noting that “Residents ‘don’t support the (Trump) administration.'”

Talk about a slap in the face.

And why do this?

Because Carson works in the Trump administration?

What about the fact that Carson became uber-successful and ran for president? Does that count for nothing?

What happens when people find the Barack Obama High School name offensive?

Will it, too, be renamed?

Ridiculous.

Obama was photographed with noted anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan sometime before the 2008 presidential election.

The picture was kept hidden until recently.

Farrakhan recently compared Jews to termites in a tweet but was hardly given a slap on the wrist by Twitter, the Democrat Party, or the mainstream media.

While in Iran, Louis led a chant calling for “Death to America” and Israel.

From Daily Wire:

A video published by Iranian state television shows Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan leading an Iranian audience in the infamous “Death to Israel” and “Death to America” chants so often heard at political rallies in the country.

“Marg bar” the footage shows Farrakhan declaring; “Israel,” the audience responds. “Marg bar,” repeats Farrakhan; “Āmrikā,” the audience chants.

Obama was always credited as a good orator.

He always appeared calm and cool under pressure, even when appearing to lie through his teeth – as is the case with most politicians at any given time.

However, a body language expert has analyzed Obama and results are stunning.

In short, Obama is coming off as desperate.

“This is not the same Obama I’m seeing. His head goes down a lot more in that downward position. It’s like a defeatist position. He’s no longer that confident, head held high, arrogant mentality… This is desperation.”

Enormous Confederate Carving Subject of Renewed Debate

Will Stone Mountain be vanquished by an army of virtue signalers?

Published

Over the course of the last several years, and with a vast acceleration in 2020, municipalities around the nation have been removing, renaming, and re-dedicating a number of Confederate monuments now deemed offensive in the wake of the Black Lives Matter Movement. Not everyone is a fan of the move, however, with opponents often suggesting that this is a revision of history, and that these men were also American soldiers, in a way. Now, one of the largest Confederate monuments in the world, the carving on the side of Stone Mountain in Georgia, is facing renewed calls for removal. Crowds are growing larger at the monthly meetings of the Georgia board considering what to do about the giant carving of Confederacy leaders in Stone Mountain. But officials seem no closer to an answer. The Stone Mountain Memorial Association decided to make a few changes last month, but they weren’t enough to placate people who want the monument removed. A museum exhibit will tell the story of the carving, as well as the site’s ties to the Ku Klux Klan. But having to make those decisions could increase the volume and the pressure on the board, NPR reports. Critics have pointed out that the carving is a modern piece, and not a relic of a bygone era. “Where we go from there?” asked the board’s chairman, the Rev. Abraham Mosley. “I don’t know.” Putting the site in a Georgia context seems like a challenge. None of the three men—Confederate Gens. Stonewall Jackson and Robert E. Lee, and Confederacy President Jefferson Davis—was from the area, and no battles were fought there. As a piece of history, it’s not that historic, having been completed in 1972. The monument sits within Stone Mountain Park, an amusement park of sorts, that has lost a number…

Russia Continues Harassment of American Military Just 35 Miles Off US Coast

That’s a little too close for comfort.

Published

When it comes to dealing with Russia, much of the US policy is straightforward, and likely on account of the fact that the Kremlin has been pulling the same, silly stunts for decades now. In fact, it’s getting a little stale. Russia loves to use her military as a nuisance to the United States, posing danger at times, certainly, but most often just being undeniably annoying. This week was no exception. Russia’s defense ministry has announced it sunk an aircraft carrier just 35 miles off the coast of Hawaii in a huge war games exercise that has alarmed the US. At least 20 Russian warships, submarines, and support vessels, flanked by 20 fighter jets, are taking part in the exercises – the biggest since the Cold War. Russia says that they are 300 miles off the coast of Hawaii, yet unconfirmed satellite images from June 19 appear to show them much closer – within 35 miles of the U.S. state. The moves have forced the US military into action. Twice this month – on June 14 and 18 – the U.S. scrambled F-22s from Hawaii in response to Russian bomber flights. Neither time did the bombers enter the U.S. Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ) perimeter, and so they were not intercepted. On June 17 the Navy admitted that the USS Carl Vinson and her strike group were operating near Hawaii, without revealing when they had arrived, or why. It has been only a few days since Russian President Vladimir Putin met with US President Joe Biden in Geneva, in a meeting that both men seemed to suggest was a success. This latest Kremlin aggression begs to differ.
