If you read the conservative blogs, you would hear about how we are a bunch of Obama’s animals, but these commentators should look outside of America and see how most of the rest of the world works. In most western countries the cops don’t have guns, they have sticks, and tasers. In countries where guns are as readily available as in the US, when an oppressed minority are shot down, there are violent uprisings.
We were promised trickle down economics and they gave us trickle down stupidity. Do you really think these talk show hosts believe everything they say, or are they just trying to collect money like the politicians? I certainly don’t believe that any politician really denies climate change in their heart. It’s one thing to deny science for religion, because someone’s whole world is wrapped up in that perspective, and at the end of the day they are thinking, “give God the glory.” But to deny science to collect a corporate paycheck is purely for someone’s own short-term progress, and disgraceful.
But the sad part about saying things they don’t believe in, is that their followers will believe them. Leaders need to understand that their lies are destroying the heart of a people, black, white, brown and yellow. And it is all of our jobs, on the right, left and center, to learn to think for ourselves. To stop reading just the conservative or just the liberal news sources, because they all have a social agenda. It’s all propaganda first, news second. It’s up to us to look at the whole picture.
The Black Lives Matter movement is so dignified by the world’s standard of social unrest that it makes my heart ache when people don’t understand the heart of an African-American. I don’t normally say African-American, I say black, but after hearing Sarah Palin’s diatribe about how hyphens were destroying the country, I just had to point out that America is still a place where Martin’s shadow hangs heavy, and that is the glue that is holding our country together.
