Hillary and the Liberal “Basket Wars”

photo by Chris Ayers

For the past several weeks, every time I drive down Tyvola Road in Charlotte I suffer a temporary case of road rage.  I’m not angry at other drivers.  What makes me flipping furious is the big church reader board sign that says, “STOP KILLING, DISRESPECTING BLACK PEOPLE”.

My visceral reaction is always the same:  “Are you talking to ME?”

I assure you, I have never killed black people.  And I have never disrespected black people.  At least not any more than I have disrespected white people or yellow people or red people who don’t deserve my respect.

So why do I have a sign in my face, demanding that I stop killing black people?  How does anybody who doesn’t know me assume I am a racist?  Or a murderer?  Or both?  And what about the other tens of thousands of people who see that sign every day?  How many of them kill black people?

I am so sick of being called a racist that sometimes I think I should become one just so I wouldn’t be so damn mad about being falsely accused of it all the time.  That sign doesn’t apply to the 99.9999% of the people driving by who don’t kill black people.  So what’s the point of sticking it our faces?  You don’t say, “Thank you for not killing black people.”  You just accuse us all of doing it.

Well here’s the thing.  I know a lot more about you, Hillary, than you know about me.  You must feel threatened, because every time a liberal feels threatened he or she falls back on false accusations, name-calling and race-baiting.  Your Chicken Little “everybody is racist” game has Martin Luther King turning over in his grave.  Thank God the American people, and especially our African-American brothers and sisters, are finally catching on to your evil, self-serving, manipulative treachery.

Despite the accusations, all of us who drive on Tyvola Road, and all of us who won’t vote for Hillary, are saddened by any untimely deaths of black people.  And white people.  And gay people and innocent Muslim people, and soldier people and truck driving people and Russian people and all people.  We are normal, compassionate human beings. When are the liberals going to knock off the “basket wars” and let us be a big, happy basket of Americans?

She’ll hang the baskets on the walls
Don’t you know I’ve seen it all before
She’ll hang the baskets on the walls
But I’ve seen it all before, heard the slamming of the door
Come summer, come fall
Come winter, there’ll be baskets on the floor

Who’s Naughty? Who’s Nice?

santa_naughty_or_niceNAUGHTY:

NICE:

  • The principled and honest conservative Congressmen and Senators: Many of our elected officials are actually doing what they promised their constituents they would do – they are working hard to stop the liberal onslaught against our economy and values.
  • Our men and women serving in the military: They put up with ridiculous rules of engagement, social engineering, politicized leadership, unjust pay and benefits, and utter disrespect and scorn from our administration and many of our legislators.  Our soldiers’ Christmas stockings should be STUFFED.
  • The American Taxpayers:  while our federal government forces them to fork over their earnings, and confiscates their property at will, the taxpayers work harder, take care of their families and employees, and find a little extra to give to those who truly need their help.

Don’t Back Down, Mississippi

mississippi-welcome-sign-close-up-1Mississippi Conservatives, I urge you – DO NOT VOTE FOR THAD COCHRAN in the general election.

At some point we have to take a stand.  We have been patient.  We have been loyal.  We have held our noses and voted for weak, establishment Republicans only in the hope that they might be marginally better than the Democrat opponent.

We have been threatened and bullied and cajoled to “take one for the good of the party.”  The establishment Republicans have counted on hard work, funds, and votes from conservatives for a long, long time.  They think we will have to vote for them no matter how many times they spit on us.

No more!

Over the last few election cycles the establishment Republicans have withheld funds from conservative candidates – case in point:  the GOP failed to support Tea Party favorite Ken Cuccinelli in the Virginia governor’s race, handing a narrow victory to unqualified, ethically-challenged and beatable Democrat Terry McAuliffe.  It gets worse.

The insider Republicans have consistently bad-mouthed the Tea Party movement, the last and only hope for honesty in government and economic survival for the nation.  They have pulled out all the stops to harm conservatives in every way possible.  It still gets worse.

Now the establishment Republicans have signed a pact with the devil.  They took out Tea Party candidate Chris McDaniel by playing the race card to entice low-information Democrats to vote for insider Thad Cochran in the Republican primary runoff election for Cochran’s US Senate seat.  This is the last straw.

“It’s too early right now to get those raw emotions out of the way,” McDaniel told Hannity. “… They used everything from the race card to food stamps to saying I would shut down public education. … I’ve fought for this (Republican Party) all my life, but they abandoned us, made fun of us and ridiculed us and brought in 35,000 Democrats to beat us.” — the Clarion Ledger, ‘McDaniel Still Pondering Challenge’, 6/25/14

For those who missed it, let me break it down.  Republicans leaders reached out to Democrats – to defeat a sharp, young, conservative Republican – to protect a weak, squishy, entrenched old Republican –  by claiming the Tea Party candidate is a racist –  like all Tea Party supporters – and that he wants to prevent them from voting [somehow].

They (Haley Barbour’s Super PAC) robo-called black Democrats with race-baiting lies.

 

They printed race-baiting flyers. 

Can you vote for a man – and a party – that will resort to these tactics against their own fellow Republicans?  If you do, you are perpetuating and encouraging such despicable acts.  We should no more vote for a Republican liar and race-baiter than a Democrat liar and race-baiter.

And black voters, why don’t you join us!  We in the Tea Party movement know how you feel – the politicians we have supported have disrespected us and only made things worse, not better.   We want the same things you do – an economic future for our children, good jobs and a government that is functional and solvent.  One that works FOR us, instead of the other way around.  Stop falling for all the lies!  You are better than that!

Mississippi, please stand your ground.  You will be blamed by the establishment for all kinds of terrible things, but don’t back down.  We can’t let them get away with this – again!  Don’t vote for Cochran.

Rockin' On the Right SideHey baby!  There ain’t no easy way out.
Hey yeah!  Stand my ground.
And I won’t back down.

Well I know what’s right, I got just one light.
In a world that keeps on pushin’ me around,
I will stand my ground.  And I won’t back down.
