Political Potpourri

The professional football (NFL) season started Sunday on the fifteenth anniversary of 9/11.  I watched the pre-game ceremony in both New York (Jets and Cincinnati) and Dallas (Cowboys and NY Giants).  In both locales, the flag was stretched the entire length of the field and held off the ground by a multitude of people.  In New York, it bobbled up and down…so what!  In Dallas, it was held taut without an unintended squiggle.  The national anthem was literally butchered by a soul-singer in New York.  In Dallas, it was played excellently on the trumpet by a gifted musician.  The approaches/words speak for themselves.  The tune needs no embellishing.  Just the notes, ma’am, just the notes.

As if it mattered one whit, some of the players chose the day to exhibit their political/social stances, having been encouraged by Kaepernick, black quarterback of the Chargers, earlier during the exhibition season for not standing during the performance of the national anthem.  Some of the players also raised their fists.  Supposedly, this was to draw attention to injustices a la the menu of the “Black Lives Matter” movement.  Actually, at least for some if not most, the actions simply expressed their hatred for this country, in which mostly white spectators pay great gobs of greenbacks to see mostly black millionaires beat the stuffing out of each other…quite an irony.

Much is being made by the media reporters/gurus (is there a difference anymore?) about Hillary Clinton’s health problems at the Manhattan 9/11 observance/memorial.  She apparently fainted briefly and had to be helped into her vehicle for a short trip to daughter Chelsea’s house, where she apparently recovered, at least well enough to later be seen again in public.  It turns out that she had known since Friday that she was suffering from pneumonia.  She should have been cooling it until she gets better, especially at her age.  If she pushes it she may suffer a preliminary relapse instead of one that comes after this ailment is thought to be over and returns too soon to the grind…any grind.  

Speaking of which, in his excellent, just-published book (and major motion picture), Hillary's America, highly respected author/political analyst Dinesh D'Souza quoted famous (or infamous) eugenicist Margaret Sanger: “We are paying for and even submitting to the dictates of an ever increasing, unceasingly spawning class of human beings who should never have been born at all.” This is the elitist approach to the general population taken by the current “progressives,” of whom Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders have been the highest-profile agitators for more than a year. These are the folks—well, just half, she said—who make up the famous Trump-supporting “basket of deplorables” in her well-teleprompted speech (not off the cuff stuff) a few days ago. Since she is guaranteed 95-99% of the black vote and most of the Latino vote, she was talking about white citizens, Trump supporters. And to think of the heat Trump took (by Hillary?) over what he said about some Mexicans! Hypocrisy, thy name is Hillary! She called the white folks racists, sexists, homophobes, xenophobes and (worst of all—gasp) Islamaphobes. These are Hillary's typical white people.

Speaking of which as D'Souza mentioned, it was southern democrats (immediate ancestors of the “progressives”) who were determined to keep blacks on the plantation...just give them something to get their votes and keep them quiet. Lyndon Johnson referred to them as N******s. Senator Bobby Byrd, besides being a Ku Klux Klan honcho in the 1940s, wrote in a letter to Mississippi Senator Bilbo back in the day that he would never fight beside blacks and referred to them as “race mongrels.” The elitists such as Hillary, Bernie and Obama know what is best for everyone (but not the Wall Street bankers). It's called socialism...rule by the oligarchs. Completely taken for granted by the elite “progressives,” blacks have sold their souls. They are whom Sanger had in mind for extinction.

And so it goes.
