Our “Civic Culture” Is Sick of Obama and the DNC Establishment Horror Show

Mr. Obama’s article at Politico, the hack site that never gives all the facts:

Obama, opening his foundation’s first summit, calls for fixing civic culture

He said:

“What we need to do is think about our civic culture, because what’s wrong with our politics is a reflection of something that’s wrong with the civic culture, not just in the United States but around the world.”

No. You’re playing party politics and catering to the establishment corruption. OUR “civic culture” is sick of it. OUR “civic culture” has had enough of the lies, the pandering, the lobbyists, and the legalized briberies.

We didn’t get Clinton elected because she was a BAD candidate. Her egotistical approach to campaigning for the job was “I deserve it”.  She acted like the job’s hers because she’s running and because she lost eight years prior to a 44-year old professor of law so this time, it’s her job.  It’s such a narrow tunnel-visioned approach to campaigning.  She’s not only corrupt, she gave us the middle finger.  Like the following:

She avoided us and the press for 8 months of the election cycle. She went around giving paid speeches instead.  She altogether refused to tell us WHY she was running.  “I’m With Her”, or that other slogan that I can’t even remember because it was so lame-ass, was a bomb waiting to go off.  She was supposed to be this smart person and she lost.  NOT because people voted for Stein or Johnson.  That’s a pathetic excuse to blame the voters instead of looking at yourself to see what it was that they didn’t like.  It’s like that crap with Gore v Bush in 2000.  The DNC is still fuming over that.  Gore actually did win.  BUT.  He would have won a lot more if he had adopted the Progressive platform and not gone further Right.  Sure, he was for the environment, but you can’t be “for the environment” and cater to the corporations’ tax dodging and annihilations of said environment.

So along comes Obama and he basically says the voters are to blame for Donald Trump.

People, please listen up.  “Civic Culture” is a euphemism for voter turnout.  We are to blame.  No.  Clinton is to blame.  The DNC leadership is to blame.

We. Are. Sick. Of. The. Establishment. Corruption.

You, Obama, and the rest of that lot?  You don’t do what we tell you to do.  You treat us as if we’re children acting up.  Only when we put a knife to our throats (Trump) do you sit up and take notice and ask what the hell went wrong.  YOU went wrong.

Mr. Obama.  The DNC got lazy.  They turned into GOP Lite.  They went Right instead of Left and they are in Congress for one reason only:  padding their wallet.  Only the Progressives who have to call themselves Democrats in order to get backing from the DNC care about us.  You don’t.  You started up wars we had no business getting involved in.  You should have apologized to the entire Muslim world for our arrogance and war crimes, but instead, you increased military contractors and our Zero Policy presence in the Middle East, Africa, Europe, Indonesia, and Asia.

Why don’t you use your time to tell everyone the truth?  Because you won’t get paid for all those lies you tell in those $quarter-million-dollar speeches.

You booted out Latinos for no good goddamn reason.  “Only the criminals” was a lie.  Trump has ICE outdoing your heinous deeds because you gave him the blueprints.  You went after whistleblowers because they exposed the criminals.  You killed the messenger.

Let’s make a comparison.

Men and women betray our country and they get a slap on the wrist, a stern talking to.  But “leakers” and “whistleblowers” get put in prison for exposing the war crimes we’ve been committing.  So they’re arrested and thrown in a dungeon or they’re forced to go on the run.  They exposed what you were ILLEGALLY doing so they had to pay.

We The People are sick of the lies that have torpedoed our bank accounts and livelihoods over the last 40 years, and all because we bought into the lies you fed us.  We are SICK of you, Clinton, and the DNC’s favoritism for the corrupt.

Progressive want to purge your kind out of government.  And for that, the new establishment hack leader of the DNC purged all Progressive democrats from leadership positions in the DNC.

That’s a message.  And we’re not gonna take it.  JusticeDemocrats.com, people.  Go support.

I fell for your bullshit, Mr. Obama.  I voted for you.  Twice.  The second time was because I absolutely HATE Mitt Romney and every single Republican out there.  He wanted to cut Social Security!  They all do.

And so did YOU.  The ONLY reason you didn’t get your cuts was due to the GOP’s plan of non-governing, refusing to do anything you wanted to do.

Voting for them is signing our death warrant.  But now voting for establishment democrats like you means the same thing, but in a nicer package.  Establishment Dems make speeches, tell us what we want to hear, and then they do the opposite.  Kamala Harris is just like you.  She was a Big Pharma lobbyist.  That’s enough to disqualify her from office.

I’m sick it.  I’m sick of you.  Buh-bye, asshole.  Go sit the fuck down and shut the fuck up.

History Lesson: Las Vegas Wasn’t the Worst in US History

Las Vegas was not the worst mass killing in American history: A history lesson

Many have argued this week and in the past that events like the Colfax Massacre and Wounded Knee are seen as separate because, within American history, the deaths of Native Americans and African Americans have not been seen the same as the deaths of white people — and that failing to specify “modern” history while talking about events like Las Vegas only underscores that idea by implying that earlier shootings don’t count.

What the news outlets should have said was that this was the worst recorded massacre by a single individual.

Worst Massacres, with more than one shooter, non-war.  The reason isn’t given because it doesn’t matter; these murders were against the law:

May 31-June 1, 1921:  Greenwood Community, Tulsa, Oklahoma.  Coined The Tulsa Race Riot by White historians

Victims:   300 African-Americans

Shooter:  White Mob

 

December 29, 1890:  Pine Ridge Agency (reservation) at Wounded Knee Creek

Victims:  200+ Lakota Native Americans

Shooter:  US Cavalry

 

April 13, 1873, Easter Sunday:  Colfax, Louisiana.  The Colfax Massacre(Whites in 1950 renamed it the Colfax Riots in order to dismiss it)

Victims:  150 African Americans

Shooter:  White “Southern Democrats” (Democrats were modern-day Republicans and the switch came during the 60s Civil Rights Era in what has been coined “the Southern Strategy”)

 

November 29, 1864:  Sand Creek, Colorado (the Sand Creek Massacre)

Victims:  70-163 Cheyenne and Arapaho (dead and dying)

Shooter:  Colorado volunteers under the command of Col. John Chivington

 

May 15, 1850:  Clear Lake, Lake County, California.  The Bloody Island Massacre

Victims:  150-200 Pomo Native Americans

Shooter:  1st Dragoons Regiment of the U.S. Army, under the command of Lieutenants Nathaniel Lyon and J.W. Davison

 

(BTW, I’m White)

 

Do You Object to Athletes Sitting During the Anthem?

Exactly WTF are YOU doing during the playing of the anthem?

1. At home, sitting on your ass.
2. In the stands, talking, scratching your balls.
3. At the game, buying beer.
4. Driving. Why don’t you pull over and stand outside your car with your hand over your heart?
5. Shopping. Eating. Shitting.

Doing anything but standing with your hand over your heart listening to a song written by a pro-slavery racist sonofabitch.  Why isn’t the anthem played in its entirety? Because you’ll quickly see that it’s a pro-war, pro-slavery song.

Why don’t y’all stop whatever you’re doing every single time the anthem is playing, in every single game, at whatever arena they’re playing at?

Take a moment and ask why the goddamn anthem is being played at a sporting event. THIS is what’s known as indoctrination.

L Ron Hubbard and Donald J Trump are Personality Twins

I was listening to this psychologist who determined that Hubbard was a malignant narcissist, which is partially defined as a person who aggressively attacks someone who criticizes them or tells them what to do.

If you think about it, compare the two men, it’s like they share the same soul.

Hated and evaded the press.

Hated the government.

Considered the IRS the enemy.

Hated exercise.

Had libertarian ideas but was more extreme in individuality.

Vehemently racist.

He evaded taxes.

Had everyone investigated.

Made shit up and turned it into a philosophy that he sold to people.

He was Trump’s spiritual daddy.

Your Personal Racism Meter

I think the best way to view your “racism” meter is to imagine a scenario.
It really doesn’t matter if you’re a woman or a man, but honestly, the threat meter ratchets up if you’re a woman b/c we live in a dangerously sexist society, never mind a racist one.

You’re walking down a sidewalk and you see a group of men. Young, old, take your pick, but they’re usually young and mid-range. (20s-30s and who the hell is afraid of a bunch of beginner teens)

They’re coming toward you. They’re joking, talking, whatever.

They spy you. If you’re a woman, you’re automatically on alert and feel threatened because society in general is blind where women’s fears are concerned. Honestly, we should go on the offensive and start belittling and catcalling, etc. and see how the hell they like it.

If you’re a man, you’re not threatened unless you belong to a minority that is daily threatened. Gay men, for example.

Now, if they’re white, how do you feel?

Black?

Personally, I’ve changed my outlook over the years. I used to feel threatened by black men because I was brainwashed by society in general to think this way. Now, I feel threatened when I see a group of white men congregating or coming toward me or even driving by. The racist ones think they’re being threatened by having this view put upon them, but the dumbfucks don’t understand that they’re the ones who rule and any condemnation toward their attitude makes them feel threatened and they literally can’t see how ironic that is, never mind seriously sick.

I’m a white woman (57) and I have a few prejudices against me–female, short, fat, poor, older. I have Native blood (1/8th, if my alcoholic dad could be trusted on his failing knowledge, and as a poor person, I can’t go get a DNA test just for shits and giggles) so I’m well aware of the racist history there.

I use this scenario as a test on my personal racism. I can say that I’m damn glad I’ve changed over the years, but it still pisses me off that I thought that shit to begin with.

Using Race When You Mean Skin Color or Culture

(repeating a facebook post)

Using Race When You Mean Skin Color or Culture

~

Dear … People:

When you say someone’s of a different race, you’re unknowingly (most of you) perpetuating a racist meme.

Those of us who aren’t prejudiced, bigoted, asshole racists have gotten into the habit of calling different cultures “races”.

What we all have to understand is that we’re all part of the human *race* and to refer to someone who’s Black, Asian, Indian, Mexican, Arab, Iraqi, etc. as a different race is actually a racist slur intended to dehumanize non-Caucasians.

I know you’re not doing it on purpose.  I think, however, that it’s high time we all acknowledge what we’ve been doing and to put a stop to it.  As for me, I’m not a member of the White race.  I’m a member of a race abbreviated as human being (homo sapien) with a mostly Caucasian background.

We should all be more vigilant, especially given the current climate of “last gasp” racist dicks who are so lost and afraid of a uniting of cultures that they’ve come out of the woodwork–mostly as a result of two electoral events:

  1.  The election of Barack Obama.  Twice.
  2.  The election of Donald Trump.  It will be only once.

We’re 8 months into a hate-filled, hate-condoned presidency.  Please.  Let’s put down the phones and bills and remotes and pay attention to what’s happening and what we can do about it.

American Terrorism

Truthdig’s Paul Street: The United States and the Crucifixion of Yemen

“I do not share other world citizens’ willingness to pardon ordinary Americans from responsibility for U.S. government crimes, both direct and indirect, around the world and in Yemen. The real story of what the U.S. is doing globally is readily available for those willing to look beyond “mainstream” sources and doctrine. Most Americans remain willfully ignorant of terrible transgressions regularly committed in their name by Uncle Sam and his allies and clients abroad.

“This ugly indifference extends even to many on the nominal left, including Bernie Sanders fans who gave unconditional support to Sanders even after he told a peace activist in Iowa City in 2015 that the Saudis “are going to have to get their hands dirty” in the U.S-led “war on [of] terror.”

““For Bernie and his supporters,” 2016 Green Party vice presidential candidate Ajamu Baraka wrote two years ago in an essay titled “The Yemen Tragedy and the Crisis of the American Left,” “the mischief that the Saudi government and private individuals have been engaged in across the region financing groups like [Islamic State] wasn’t dirty enough.”

“Neither, apparently, was Riyadh’s U.S.-equipped campaign to bomb Yemen back to the 19th century—a campaign that has turned Yemen into a shameful humanitarian disaster of epic proportions.””

He’s right.  We are guilty.  All of us.  We let this happen through our apathy and our willful ignorance.

You can’t continue to wear rose-colored glasses when viewing our own history (past and currently making) and still call yourself an American. We have to stop our government’s continuing campaign of terror on the world at large. WE are the terrorists who have spawned other terrorist groups in retaliation for what we’ve done.

We were all so shocked by 9/11.  We’re thinking, “Why did they do this to us? What did we do to deserve this?”

THIS:  We have ignored what our government has been doing for a few centuries, and with our access to information for the last 80 years, we have no excuse.  We’ve been willing to accept lies and misinformation, all because we’ve been spoon-fed “patriotism” by our leaders whose sole mission is to rob us blind while they yell “squirrel” and point to carefully selected blame games.

We can’t afford to ignore our government’s war crimes and war-mongering behavior anymore.  We can’t.  If we continue on this road, we’re complicit in all war crimes our military and intelligence agencies commit in our name.

“The United States has killed, maimed, displaced and otherwise harmed an astonishing number of people in its 241-year record of murder and mayhem—including more than 20 million killed in 37 nations since 1945.”

Here ya go, Presidents (except Jimmy Carter), Congress, FBI, CIA, NSA, etc. One more goddamn fucking word about Russian meddling and the American people should kick your duplicitous, corrupted, evil asses.  Woodrow Wilson invaded Russia during their revolution because he hated communism, and began a campaign of interventionism, calling the action White Russian.  This action was the source of the upcoming Cold War and our rivalry with Russia.  We interfered in their elections, and Americans have been ignorant of this fact thanks to the government being in charge of the making of our history books.

This blatantly racist bastard (he held a private viewing of the hideous White Supremacist film “Birth of a Nation” and personally re-activated the KKK) was responsible for the murder of civilians in Haiti, the Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Guatamala, Honduras, and other nations, thanks to his interference in their democratically-elected governments.  Why did he do this?  His belief that we were superior and had the right.  We aren’t and we never did.

“Hiroshima (146,000 killed with a single bomb—what President Harry Truman called “the greatest thing in history”) and Nagasaki (80,000): The arch-criminal atom bombings were unnecessary and savagely carried out even though the U.S. high command knew Japan was defeated and ready to accept U.S. surrender terms.”

What you should know, fellow Americans, is that dropping bombs on Japan was NOT due to winning the war or trying to stop more bloodshed (choke on that stupidity for a sec). It was to send a clear message to *Moscow*. All our military commanders told Truman it was unnecessary but he ignored them. The fucker should have been hung for war crimes.

We have to put a stop to this terrorism by our government, ladies and gentlemen.  We have no right to interfere with other nations, never mind declaring non-wars on their peoples.  No right whatsoever.
