Pride and Prejudice

Our divided America has been caused in part by ignorance of our history (and by some rejecting it) and has resulted in ill informed and inflammatory rhetoric. I think the Leftist press has been most responsible for this.

Confusion and chaos reign in this forced multicultural society. It was predictable. The recent conflict in Charlottesville, Virginia illustrates damage done by the Obama racist revolution and the backlash to it.

A typist for the Associated Press (Sarah Rankin) recently made her contribution.  “A car plowed into a crowd of people peacefully protesting a white nationalist rally Saturday in a Virginia college town, killing one person, hurting dozens more and ratcheting up tension in an increasingly violent confrontation.” Rankin used the term white nationalist nearly a dozen times in her story.

A day later she wrote another story referring to the event as a white supremacist rally. She associated the 20-year old driver, with a history of schizophrenia, with “one of the hate groups.” A rally group denied any association with him.

First, what’s wrong with “white nationalists”? Nationalism is a devotion to the interests and culture of one’s nation. We white people have a perfect right to rally and honor our culture and history. Why the double standard; bad for whites, good for non-whites?

White people founded this country and established its laws. We take pride in that. Of course, this original “sin” stirs hatred from the Left for no rational reason. Why do they want to tear down our heritage? We wish them no harm.

Specifically, if it’s unacceptable to be a nationalist, why are so many nationalistic groups such as the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, Black Lives Matter, Black Panthers, and the Nation of Islam permitted to rally—and even allowed to riot in the streets?

Furthermore, as I understand it, the protesting rally was called “Unite the Right,” not “White Supremacist.” The leadership got a permit to gather at a park in Charlottesville, after the mayor denied them and the ACLU intervened. About 500 peaceful people showed up to protest the Leftist mayor and city council members’ decision to remove a statue of Confederate hero Robert E. Lee. Twice that number showed up to disrupt the rally.  Was that a coincidence or planned?

Eyewitnesses’ told that the police split the original rally group with barricades, and they were then surrounded by protesters using inflammatory language. When the police vanished the larger group of protesters became confrontational and violent.

Some people suspect the mayor created a “setup” to trap the rally organization and claim they were the bad guys. Reportedly, he (or his staff) arranged for the police not to interfere in the confrontation and, unconcerned, watched the violence from a safe place.

If that is true, he and his accomplices are responsible for the death and injuries that resulted.  We have heard that this activist mayor, last January, declared his city “The Capital of the (Trump) Resistance” and a “sanctuary city” for illegal aliens.  (Link below)

Sadly, President Trump and Jeff Sessions, his attorney general, fell into a trap set by the “fake news” and other Leftists (and Republicans). Trump was pressured to “forcefully denounce the organizations that had promoted the protest against the removal of a Confederate statue”—before they knew what this was all about. Remember when Obama jumped to conclusions about police actions?

The day of the rally Sessions announced a “civil rights investigation” into “actions (arising) from racial bigotry and hatred.” We wonder if that will include the mayor of Charlottesville and other Leftists in Virginia for their “bigotry and hatred” against Southern people and their heritage. But I doubt it.
