You guys are a joke
As much involvement as I’d like to have in talk radio and other formats where rational humans can talk, disagree and debate I’ve come to understand something. I will never, ever, be mainstream media.
You’ve quit, you’ve given up all honor, morals, integrity and objectivity. You have made it clear your job is to get Hillary Clinton elected integrity and morals be damned.
Your latest beauty?
Our current Secretary of State was in Brussels today. This is lifted directly from the transcript of his speech and follow on Q&A.
I mean, look, I’m here in Brussels and I want to be completely respectful, but I also want to be honest. I hear my fellow foreign ministers from one country or another talk about, sort of, how difficult it is to sometimes get things through, move fast, get Brussels to make a decision, or they feel imposed upon. I mean, we have this fight in America too. We have 50 states. We’re still developing, somewhat, the relationship between states and federal government. And the Supreme Court frequently comes out with a decision realigning it or adjusting it one way or the other. It’s a living institution. The Constitution that we are living by first wrote slavery into the constitution before it wrote slavery out. I can remember as a young college student being involved in the Mississippi voter registration drive and the fights for civil rights in America, and we passed the Voting Rights Act and Civil Rights Act. It wasn’t until 1975. We still are struggling with some things at the polls and so forth – in access to voting and other things. So everybody has to continue to fight, but what is – I’ve never heard the better idea from the other side about how they’re going to do things that actually works for everybody.
Why does no one question our “leaders” when they go abroad and lie, not only about our nation today, but about our past? Why do you in the media allow this? Is it because you yourself are ignorant of our past? Or do you just not care that truth be a part of speeches when our “leaders” speak around the world.
The word “Slave” and “Slavery”? Neither of those words appear ANYWHERE in our Constitution, nor our Bill of Rights. Nowhere, ever.
For all you fake history majors who want to allude to the “3/5ths clause”?
It had nothing to do with diminishing the accounting of slaves as “less than human” but recognizing a large portion of that population was in the south and would be used to gain a significant advantage in the House of Representatives as well as additional votes in the Electoral College.
During the period of 1865–1877, federal law provided civil rights protection in the southern US for blacks who had been slaves, as well as for free blacks. In the 1870s, Democrats (Dixiecrats) gradually regained control of southern legislatures through a myriad of ways, very few legal. Extensive voter fraud was also used (Wow, almost 150 years later and they’re still using voter fraud!). Adding that fraud to multiple local races that were close led to an increase in violence against blacks during campaigns starting in 1868. In 1877 the DNC compromised to gain Southern support in the presidential election which led to the government pulling the last of the federal soldiers out of the south. White Democrats regained political power in the south. These Southern, white, Democratic governments legislated Jim Crow laws, officially segregating black and white population.
Blacks continued to be elected well into the 1880’s all the while Democrats were passing laws to impede both blacks and poor whites ability to participate with changes to registration and in the electoral college. From 1890 to 1910, 10 of 11 former confederate states passed new constitutions or amendments that effectively ended the black and poor white voters participation. The lovely state of Mississippi led the way.
Voter turnout would dramatically decrease South. In Louisiana, by 1900, black voters were reduced to 5,320 on the rolls, although they comprised the majority of the state’s population. By 1910, only 730 blacks were registered, less than 0.5% of eligible black men. “In 27 of the state’s 60 parishes, not a single black voter was registered any longer; in 9 more parishes, only one black voter was.” The cumulative effect in North Carolina meant that black voters were completely eliminated from voter rolls during the period from 1896–1904. Just the first of many times a Democratic policy would stifle or destroy middle class growth.
So to repeat. Our country was NOT founded with slavery as a part of the future vision. “All men are created equal” actually meant just that.
And for those that just flat out refuse to read a book or study their history, or care to learn, remember this. The liberals, the Democratic party was, has and always will be the party of Slavery, segregation, Jim Crow laws and everything else they want people to believe about Republicans. Blacks voted overwhelmingly Republican into the 1930’s. Mainly because Lincoln was a Republican and also the Democratic Party didn’t welcome blacks then, and it wasn’t until 1924 that blacks were even permitted to attend Democratic conventions in any official capacity.
So as much as Killary and the gang want to rewrite our history, have at least an ounce of dignity and call them out when they lie… Oh wait, that ships sailed I guess. You keep doing what you do then, because it appears to me you clowns are slitting the throat of the mainstream media one lie at a time.
