University Of Alabama Dean Steps Down After Tweets About American Flag Uncovered

Bit too harsh.

Published

We live in a day and age where being a fan of the United States and supporting your country by flying the flag that represents all it stands for is grounds for public shaming and even worse consequences.

However, every once in awhile, the opposite happens. Someone gets caught bashing the flag and immediately they end up regretting the high price they pay for their disdain.

Such is the case with the dean of the University of Alabama, Jaime R. Riley, who just stepped down from the post after some tweets about the flag were uncovered.

Riley’s resignation Thursday came after images of past tweets from Riley resurfaced — one of which tied the American flag and police to racism and another that said white people can’t experience racism, the paper said.

Chris Bryant, assistant director of the Division of Strategic Communications, added in his statement regarding Riley’s resignation that neither he nor the university “will have any further comments,” the paper said.

“The [American flag emoji] flag represents a systemic history of racism for my people,” Riley wrote in a September 2017 tweet. “Police are a part of that system. Is it that hard to see the correlation?”

Many folks around the Internet, including tons of conservatives, don’t feel like Riley should’ve lost his job over the flag incident.

Shapiro is right on the money here. We live in a country where freedom of speech is a principle that we should all be able to agree with and stand up for. Unfortunately, the left has been hostile on speech and has played by such hateful rules, that no both sides of the battle are fighting dirty.

This isn’t healthy or productive for our divided nation right now. We all need to learn to respect each other’s views, even if we disagree. That’s how hearts and minds are won and the truth rises to the top.

Here’s to hoping we all learn from this situation and start practicing some real tolerance.

Biden’s ‘Day of Prayer’ Remarks Never Mentioned God, But It DID Talk of ‘Racial Justice’ and ‘Climate Change’

Devout Catholic….

Joe Biden put out his first presidential proclamation for the National Day of Prayer, but it seems he forgot to mention anything about God, or religion… well, except for the left’s religions of climate change and racial justice. Biden issued his proclamation on Thursday to supposedly address the power of prayer. But instead of an ode to God, Christianity or even religion in general, Biden paid homage to the left’s fake religions and ignored real religions. “Throughout our history, Americans of many religions and belief systems have turned to prayer for strength, hope, and guidance,” Biden’s proclamation began. “Prayer has nourished countless souls and powered moral movements — including essential fights against racial injustice, child labor, and infringement on the rights of disabled Americans. Prayer is also a daily practice for many, whether it is to ask for help or strength, or to give thanks over blessings bestowed.” Biden added that the First Amendment protects “the rights of free speech and religious liberty,” which protects the right of all Americans to pray. “These freedoms have helped us to create and sustain a Nation of remarkable religious vitality and diversity across the generations,” the proclamation continued. Celebrating the “healing balm of prayer,” Biden added, “As we continue to confront the crises and challenges of our time — from a deadly pandemic, to the loss of lives and livelihoods in its wake, to a reckoning on racial justice, to the existential threat of climate change — Americans of faith can call upon the power of prayer to provide hope and uplift us for the work ahead.” Biden did not mention the words God, Jesus, or any specific religious concepts other than the general point of “prayer.” This is in stark contrast to every president before him. Even Barack Obama mentioned God. Check…

Biden’s Jobs Report Crashes to Worst Miss in History, Then He Blames Trump

The latest jobs report is the worst miss of estimated new jobs creation in history, and Joe Biden is desperately trying to blame Trump.

The latest jobs report is the worst miss of estimated new jobs creation in history, and Joe Biden is desperately trying to blame Trump even as he claims nothing is wrong at all. Economists had predicted almost a million new jobs for this past period, but on Friday Biden’s latest report came in at only 266,000 new jobs. This is a huge gap, and the worst miss of jobs predictions in history. Not only did Biden’s numbers come in at a massive miss of the expected new jobs, but the unemployment rate actually went up to 6.1%. https://twitter.com/axios/status/1390648052097163271 One of Biden’s problems us that the Democrats keep handing out free cash to the unemployed which has convinced them that they don’t even need to go look for a job. https://twitter.com/cvpayne/status/1390648212864839684 Not only was this latest period a big miss, but the last one was also downgraded from the original estimate of 916,000 down to 770,000. When the news broke, Biden initially said everything was juuuust fine. “There is more evidence that our economy is moving in the right direction, but it’s clear we have a long way to go,” Biden said on Friday. But on the other hand, he tried to blame Trump, saying, “When we came in, we inherited a year of profound economic crisis and mismanagement on the virus.” Lies. The fact is, the report showed unemployment rose in April for the first time since April 2020, when the economic fallout from the coronavirus pandemic first hit the nation.
