Sticks and Stones ….

…. may break my bones but names will never hurt me. That’s an old saying that we grew up with. We heard it from our parents, friends and classmates.

Today the opposite is true.

Let’s compare former Las Vegas Raiders coach Jon Gruden and Larry Miller.

Who is Larry Miller? You say you have never heard of him.

Larry Miller is chairman of Nike’s Jordan brand. He is a 72-year old black man. Last week he made a disturbing admission.

Larry Miller, the chairman of Nike’s Jordan brand, fatally shot a teenager in 1965, he told Sports Illustrated in an interview published Wednesday.

Miller told the publication that he was 16 at the time and in a West Philadelphia gang called Cedar Avenue.

Miller’s friend, who Miller considered “an innocent,” was stabbed to death in a gang fight in September 1965, Miller said. Later that month, Miller and others went out looking for anyone affiliated with the rival gang, and shot the first person they encountered, he said.

He said he didn’t know White and wasn’t sure whether White was even connected to the rival gang, which was called 53rd and Pine.

“We were all drunk,” Miller told the publication. “I was in a haze.”

He spent most of his teens and 20s in prison or juvenile detention facilities, he told Sports Illustrated, including for his role in the teenager’s death.

“By the time I was 16, I was just a straight-up gangbanger, thug,” he said. “I was drinking every day.”

He had tried to hide his criminal past from friends and colleagues, he said, before recently telling some of the people close to him.

In today’s world, the crime Larry Miller committed long ago – murder – forgivable. The crime Jon Gruden committed long ago – being politically incorrect in a private email – isn’t.

While Gruden has been the subject of non-stop news coverage in recent weeks, Larry Miller’s admission went pretty much under the radar. It’s the kind of thing CNN “embargoes.”

Miller didn’t commit a mortal sin (by today’s standards). He wasn’t politically correct. He also enjoys something Gruden doesn’t – black privilege.

The media called for Gruden’s firing and Raiders owner, Mark Davis, admits that the NFL forced it.

There have been no calls for Larry Miller’s firing – nor should there be. Kudos to him for turning his life around.

But the different treatment Miller and Gruden received points out the hypocrisy and double standards that exist in today’s world – murder is forgivable but words used in a private conversation aren’t. We are living in a screwed-up world.

Perhaps another old saying should be changed – from “At least he didn’t kill anyone” to “At least he didn’t say anything politically incorrect.”

Our modern-day “Minutemen”: PARENTS

2021 October 14

In the spring of 1775, General Thomas Gage, the British governor of Massachusetts, received instructions from Great Britain to seize all stores of weapons and gunpowder accessible to the American insurgents. On April 18, he ordered British troops to march against Concord and Lexington the next day…April 19, 1775.

Roughly 800 British troops were dispatched to Concord, Mass., to arrest Sam Adams and John Hancock and to seize a cache of weapons known to be stored at Concord. Adams and Hancock were considered Domestic Terrorists by the British. And the weapons and gunpowder were considered a threat to the British domination of the Colonies.

Roughly 250 years later, Attorney General Merrick Garland is ordering his “troops” (the FBI) to march out and arrest modern day “Domestic Terrorists”. And like then, these “terrorists” possess “weapons and gunpowder” that pose a threat to government domination.

The “Domestic Terrorists” are PARENTS…, the “gunpowder” is the TRUTH, and “weapon” is the 1st Amendment.

Who would have thought that PARENTS attending School Boards across the country would stand in for the Minutemen of 1775, and the Loudoun County School Board assembly hall would stand in for the commons of Lexington and Concord?

Yet here we are.

The Minutemen of 1775 knew that if the British seized their gunpowder and weapons, then their means of resisting tyranny would be greatly diminished…if not eliminated.

The “Minutemen” of 2021 (Parents) know that if Merrick Garland and his FBI stormtroopers are allowed to seize their First Amendment RIGHTS, then their means of resisting the tyranny being foisted on their children will be greatly diminished…if not eliminated.

The Colonies of 1775 were one spark away from open rebellion. That spark occurred on April 19, 1775.

The United States of 2021 are, seemingly, one spark away from open rebellion as well.

The British demanded that Colonists on the green at Lexington “drop your weapons and return to your homes”.

Captain Parker’s remarks to his men in response to that demand were: “Stand your ground. Don’t fire unless fired upon, but if they mean to have a war, let it begin here.”

The Department of “Justice” is demanding we drop our weapons (the First Amendment), and return to our homes.  (essentially: “SIT DOWN and SHUT UP!“)  And leave our children and grandchildren under their complete control.

Who will be our “John Parker”??

A Government Working Against the People

In a democratic republic the will of the majority used to be respected. But today political decisions, forced by the elites and a small group of leftists whose presence on social media makes them appear to be far larger than they actually are.

  • In the latest Rasmussen Reports survey, 56% of respondents said, “It’s likely that cheating affected the outcome of the 2020 presidential election, including 41% who say it’s ‘very likely.’”
  • Only 30% of Americans believe the country is moving in the right direction (Rasmussen)
  • An overwhelming majority (81%) of respondents also said they support voters being required to show ID in order to vote, including 62% of Democrats, even as critics contend voter ID laws suppress turnout and unfairly discriminate against groups like low-income, elderly and minority voters (Monmouth)
  • 65% of Likely U.S. Voters believe that wider use of mail-in voting will lead to more cheating in elections, including 51% who say it’s Very Likely (Rasmussen)
  • Only 41% of American Adults now have a favorable impression of Dr. Fauci, down from 44% in August. Forty-five percent (45%) now have an unfavorable impression of Fauci, up from 42% who had a negative view of him in August (Rasmussen)
  • 56 percent of Americans don’t trust President Biden to make wise immigration policy decisions (Rasmussen)
  • Twenty-seven percent say they are “not too confident” and 28 percent say they are “not at all confident” that the government is adequately screening the refugees, the latest Pew Research Center survey showed
  • More respondents had a negative opinion of Black Lives Matter, than had a positive opinion (48.1% to 44.4%) – Competitive Edge Research
  • An overwhelming 86.6% of respondents opposed schools teaching the concept that people are natural “oppressors” or victims based on their sex, race, and physical characteristics – Competitive Edge Research
  • When asked if schools should teach that “achieving racial justice and equality between racial groups requires discriminating against people based on their whiteness,” the vast majority of respondents (84%) said no. Only 6.3% of the people polled thought that was a good idea, and 9.6% were unsure Competitive Edge Research

Of course, the Democrats and their media allies will spin the numbers any way they can. For example, they show polls indicating a vast majority of Americans favor admitting Afghan allies as refugees. But 80%+++ of Afghans admitted to the US never helped US Forces in Afghanistan. And neither did the 100,000+ additional Afghan refugees Biden wants to admit.

US Colleges: No More Free than North Korea

2021 October 11

Would you believe indoctrination at US colleges is as bad as North Korea? This statement comes from a former North Korean who is attending Columbia University.

Life experiences provide us with an opportunity to develop an expertise in certain areas. For example, teachers develop an expertise enabling them to quickly identify students with learning issues, which the educator can then help them overcome. But what about a situation in which these roles are reversed – the rare situation in which a life experience has imbued a student with a certain expertise the teacher lacks? And, more importantly, if the student wishes to share the benefit of such expertise, will the teacher even listen?

Such is the case at an Ivy League college where a student with a unique background is pursuing an education. The student is Yeonmi Park. She lived in North Korea for 14 years before escaping to China in 2007, where she was forced into the sex slave trade, later making her way to South Korea before moving to the U.S. in 2014.

What then is Park’s area of expertise? She says she is grateful for two things in her life of 27 years – first, being born in North Korea and, second, escaping it. Her reasoning is that it is both these events that have shaped who she is today. They are experiences she would not trade for an ordinary and peaceful life. Having spent half her life in North Korea where school begins at an early age to start the indoctrination process of a new generation to support an historically brutal family dictatorship that has ruled the country since 1948, Park knows brainwashing when she sees it. She clearly recognizes when what is supposed to be a teaching experience stimulating independent thinking by students is, in reality, something entirely different. Thus, she can sniff out propaganda indoctrination that seeks to strip the student of independent thinking. After all, some of the best propagandists in the world attempted to do this to her as a child in North Korea.

But what has shocked Park after settling in the U.S. and attending college at Columbia University is that she is being exposed to that which she sought to escape in her native country. She undoubtedly has provoked Columbia professors with the statement, but she maintains not even North Korea was “this nuts” in their brainwashing efforts as is the university in undermining Western cultural and social achievements. And, unlike in North Korea, she is paying a “fortune” to the university to be so indoctrinated.

In an interview, Park said, “I expected that I was paying this fortune, all this time and energy, to learn how to think. But they are forcing you to think the way they want you to think. I realized, wow, this is insane. I thought America was different, but I saw so many similarities to what I saw in North Korea that I started worrying.”
