We are quite literally witnessing a civil war, by its very definition, and the fall of a nation as a series of seemingly unrelated events all conclusively show exactly how out of control and dangerous discourse has become in America, where a Facebook screed (now deleted) about how decorations at Hobby Lobby that has cotton in it are "WRONG in SO many levels" because decades ago slaves picked cotton, goes viral, and grown men making multi-millions of dollars a year are "taking a knew" during the national anthem with liberals encouraging more to do so, daring to claim how "oppressed" people are in America, and caterwauling communists are allowed to disrupt events, news conferences, and shut down free speech by screeching the word "fascism!"
THE 'RACE-IFICATION' OF AMERICA AND 'COTTON-GATE'
A member of the perpetually outraged and offended, Ms. Daniell Rider, of Killeen, Texas, was shopping at Hobby Lobby and became offended over a decoration they sold because it contained cotton stalk, so she immediately snapped off a photo, ran home and took to Facebook to express how outrageous she found such a display, saying "This decor is WRONG on SO many levels. There is nothing decorative about raw cotton… A commodity which was gained at the expense of African-American slaves.”
"A little sensitivity goes a long way," she added. "PLEASE REMOVE THIS ‘decor.'"
The backlash was so severe over her rant that the post has apparently been deleted, but she has made national headlines in the aftermath of her screed, but the larger point here is that to those with victimhood mentality, everything is a "micro-aggression" and offends, where milk has been called a symbol of racism, talking about the constitution or of "respect for the founding fathers" is supposedly a message with "racial content," where white woman who wear hoop earrings is committing the crime of "cultural appropriation" (and racist to boot!), where being a white male is "toxic" and masculinity is "cowardly," where the electoral college, a system that has been used for generation upon generation to elect our presidents is an "instrument of white supremacy and sexism," math is racist too because it drives inequality, according to CNN.......... the examples are never ending.
It all comes down to what singer and comedian Chad Prather calls the "race-ification of America," in the short video below, where he highlights the utter idiocy of not only "cotton-gate" but the overall aspect of everything a "white" person does or says is automatically labeled "RACIST!"
I agree it is getting old, fast, to see the perpetually offended continue to try to manufacture reasons to be offended.
POOR 'OPPRESSED' COLIN & SPORTS FIGURES
The latest trend, being fully encouraged by liberals, is sports figures "taking a knee" during the National Anthem, where former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick decided to publicly humiliate himself by doing it "in protest of police brutality and racial inequality." (Source)
It became quite the controversy and Kaepernick was not signed this year, football ratings tanked, and now football and baseball players this year are making public spectacles of themselves by joining the latest trend, obviously not seeing the irony of men that are making multi-millions each and every year for running around on a field chasing a ball, speaking about America being "oppressive."
While we have seen readers commenting on this issue, providing some great commentary on the disrespect shown to the National Anthem by sports figures, we find offering video commentary redundant, so instead ladies and gentlemen, compare "Oppressed" Colin Kaepernick and other embarrassments to the U.S. in the sports industry, to the pride and glory of one of the best renditions of the National Anthem by another African American. The late, great Whitney Houston..... just look at the pride on her face as she belts out those words.
CATERWAULING COMMIES AND BERKELEY UPDATE
(Note- Livestream at Berkeley at the bottom of this article)
While there are a number of examples that can be listed showing the unraveling of America, I deliberately chose that are happening within, specifically the "race-ification" of America, but as we have been keeping track of all out war on free speech in America, or at least any type of conservative speech, the events in Berkeley today, is a prime example of how much has been lost on college campuses across America.
The official Free Speech Week unraveled after the student group, having been threatened by UC Berkeley officials, pulled their sponsorship from the event that was slated for September 24 through the 27th, and now will be an "unofficial" event to be held on campus grounds, rather than specific venues within buildings.
Antifa groups started their "protest" at 10 am local time, and Milo, Pamela Geller, Mike Cernovich and others begin their rally on campus at noon, so it is anyone's guess how much the security measures put in place (discussed in yesterday's article about Free Speech Week) and the guarantees to Milo and company by Berkeley police, will be effective.
In an ironic turn of events, UC Berkeley officials attempted to have their own press conference in order to contradict the claims of the student organizers that arranged Free Speech Week, and that presser was rudely interrupted by a caterwauling Antifa member of Refuse Fascism who hijacked the presser to the point where the Assistant Vice Chancellor of UC Berkeley, Dan Mogulof, told reporters he would return when she was done, then walked out into the hallway. Some reporters followed him and started asking questions which he was answering and then the little female commie, along with other members, interrupted that discussion with her screeching and finally Mogulof utters the very same words conservatives have been highlighting when he asks "I guess its just free speech for certain people?"
Sir....... You should look into a mirror when you say that because Berkeley has allowed those very same Antifa groups to force the cancellation of previous events, not just by shouting them down as they did to you Mr. Mogulof, but with physical attacks, firebombs, and destruction of property.
Talk about hoisted by your own petard.
Any number of us can highlight a dozen different things happening right now that shows how out of control things have become in this nation, I simply chose these three which spotlight the deliberate divisions being created by design, among different segments of the population in order to bring America down.
Civil War is defined as "a war between citizens of the same country," and anyone that cannot see that this is exactly what we witnessing throughout the country, is blind.
LIVESTREAMS AT BERKELEY
