San Francisco Teachers Union Endorses Anti-Semitic BDS Movement While Accusing Israel of “Apartheid and War Crimes”

FoxNews.com reports that

San Francisco’s teachers union is drawing criticism from Jewish families after voting to endorse the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement and releasing a statement accusing America’s Middle Eastern ally of committing “apartheid and war crimes”.

The United Educators of San Francisco’s endorsement of the movement in mid-May during the recent fighting between Israel and Hamas is reportedly the first time a public school teachers union has backed that cause, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. The BDS movement seeks to pressure Israel to change its policies toward Palestinians.

“As public school educators in the United States of America, we have a special responsibility to stand in solidarity with the Palestinian people because of the 3.8 billion dollars annually that the U.S. government gives to Israel, thus directly using our tax dollars to fund apartheid and war crimes,” the union said in a resolution that it passed. “Therefore, be it resolved, that United Educators of San Francisco (UESF) express our solidarity with the Palestinian people and call for Israel to end bombardment of Gaza and stop displacement at Sheikh Jarrah.”

The union also called on President Biden to stop sending aid to Israel and that it “endorse[s] the international campaign for boycotts, divestment, and sanctions against apartheid in Israel.”

However, parents of students in the district are wondering why the 6,000-member union is getting involved in international politics during the coronavirus pandemic. Public schools in San Francisco only started welcoming children back to classrooms in April.

“The teachers union has failed in its most basic mission this year, opening schools and educating San Francisco’s children,” Todd David, a Jewish parent, told the San Francisco Chronicle. “Instead of focusing on that, they are weighing in on an international political land dispute that experts have been unable to resolve for 70 years.”

Parent Arik Luck – a member of the local Congregation Emanu-El — also told the newspaper that he feels the union has betrayed him as their statement “singled out Israel” and “did not even mention Hamas, an organization that is classified by our government as a terrorist group with a well-documented history of executing their political rivals and homosexuals.”

“I also question what my teachers union is doing wading into these waters at the expense of my kids,” he added. “There are many Jewish people in this city, public school parents who feel the way I do, and a statement like this causes us to worry for the safety of our children in school.”

The San Francisco Unified School District has not yet responded to a request for comment Friday from Fox News.

Union spokesperson Amanda Hart told the San Francisco Chronicle this week that “we stand by our call for the boycott, divestment and sanctions of Israel and we unequivocally stand against antisemitism in all its forms.”

Really?

Per their website BDSMovement.net,

The Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) movement works to end international support for Israel’s oppression of Palestinians and pressure Israel to comply with international law.

“BDS” stands for boycott, divest, and sanction.

According to MyJewishLearning.com,

The BDS effort officially traces its origins to a 2005 call by a coalition of 170 Palestinian organizations, though some observers see its roots in the Arab League boycott of Israel launched in the 1940s. The contemporary BDS movement began to take shape during the Second Intifada, which began in 2000. Escalating violence and various major Israeli military operations in the West Bank led to a number of boycott calls beginning in 2002. The construction of Israel’s West Bank barrier, which the Palestinians largely opposed, alleging that it was a land grab rather than an effort to reduce terrorism, gave further momentum to these efforts. The 2005 BDS declaration opens by noting that Israel’s construction of the barrier was continuing despite an International Court of Justice ruling a year earlier that it was illegal.

Do any Jewish organizations support BDS?

Very few, and none of the major ones. The best-known is Jewish Voice for Peace, a San Francisco-based group that does not endorse a two-state solution or the principles of Zionism and which the Anti-Defamation League lists among the top anti-Israel groups in the United States. Among mainstream Jewish organizations, there is wall-to-wall rejection of BDS. The Jewish campus group Hillel officially bars pro-BDS groups from speaking under its auspices, though this policy has been challenged at a number of schools. J Street, the liberal lobbying group, rejects BDS because the BDS movement does not support a two-state solution or recognize the Jewish right to a state. J Street does support boycotts that are targeted at Jewish settlements in Israeli-occupied territory, however.

So, the largest Jewish Group who supports the BDS Movement happens to be in San Francisco.

I’m shocked. Shocked, I tell you.

Boys and girls, are any of you actually surprised that a Liberal Teachers’ Union in Ultra-Liberal San Francisco are taking the side of a “movement” which The Squad champions because it speaks for the wishes of a bunch of Islamic barbarians (yeah, I said it) who want to take land away from Israel for a “country” with never existed?

Per discoverthenetworks.org,

The term “Palestine” (Falastin in Arabic) was an ancient name for the general geographic region that is more or less today’s Israel. The name derives from the Philistines, who originated from the eastern Mediterranean, and invaded the region in the 11th and 12th centuries B.C. The Philistines were apparently either from Greece, Crete, the Aegean Islands, and/or Ionia. They seem to be related to the Bronze Age Greeks, and they spoke a language akin to Mycenaean Greek. Their descendents, still living on the shores of the Mediterranean, greeted Roman invaders a thousand years later. The Romans corrupted the name to “Palestina,” and the area under the sovereignty of their city-states became known as “Philistia.” Six-hundred years later, the Arab invaders called the region “Falastin.”

Throughout subsequent history, the name remained only a vague geographical entity. There was never a nation of “Palestine,” never a people known as the “Palestinians,” nor any notion of “historic Palestine.” The region never enjoyed any sovereign autonomy, remaining instead under successive foreign sovereign domains from the Umayyads and Abbasids to the Fatimids, Ottomans, and British.

Here’s a suggestion:

Why don’t the United Educators of San Francisco shut up, open back up their schools and classrooms, and teach?

Wouldn’t that be refreshing?

Or, would that be too much like work for them?

United Methodist Church Conservatives Prepare to Form New Denomination

See the source image

Traditionalists decrying a lack of respect for Scripture have lamented that United Methodist evangelism lately has consisted mainly of spreading the social gospel of good works rather than the spiritual freedom of The Great Commission. In more than 18 months, only a couple stories of well over a thousand on the daily UM News feed have reported people accepting Jesus as Lord and Savior.

ChristianPost.com reports that

The United Methodist Church, the third-largest Christian sect in the United States, took another step toward schism over their longstanding debate on LGBT issues when theological conservatives recently unveiled their plan for a new denomination.

Known as the Global Methodist Church, it was the product of the 17-member Transitional Leadership Council, a group of theologically conservative United Methodists.

The Wesleyan Covenant Association, a conservative United Methodist advocacy group, announced the launching of the GMC on March 1, explaining that it will not officially begin operations until a formal separation policy is approved by the UMC.

“Theologically conservative United Methodists have made no secret of their efforts to form a new church,” stated the WCA in the announcement.

“In late 2018, the Wesleyan Covenant Association created a Next Steps Working Group to begin drafting its own ‘Book of Doctrines and Discipline’ outlining essential theological confessions and governing structures for a new church’s consideration.”

The creators of the GMC and other United Methodists are holding off further action until the results of the next churchwide legislative meeting, known as the General Conference.

Due largely to the coronavirus pandemic, the global denomination has had to postpone the legislative meeting multiple times, with it presently being scheduled to take place Aug. 29 – Sept. 6, 2022, in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

On the agenda for General Conference 2022 will be a proposal to fund and create at least one new separate denomination for those who no longer want to remain in the UMC.

Before I begin, please allow me to be honest with you.

I left the United Methodist Church at the age of 39, when I realized that, thanks to those in control of the denomination, whose headquarters was in the Northeast, some parts of the UMC were beginning to value secularism more than it did the Word of God.

How did I come to that conclusion?

I walked into a Sunday School class and a theology student was teaching out of a book titled, “Rescuing the Bible from Fundamentalists”.

While I hated to leave the Choir Director whom I had sang under for 20 years, like Belshazzar, I saw the writing upon the wall.

That was over 20 years ago.

Now, after a long journey down a road filled with Liberals’ “religion of social justice”, the United Methodist Church is about to pay for following the word of man instead of the Word of God..

Right now, I can hear the Liberals who read my posts in order to raise their blood pressure beyond their usual catharsis, saying,

Well, what’s wrong with embracing the lifestyle of the LGBT “community” and allowing them to have leadership roles and to get married within the church?

Christ loved and embraced everyone.

Indeed He did.

Jesus was often found in the company of sinners…but not because He accepted their sins. He was with them because he loved them and loathed their sin. He was there to redeem them through His Loving Grace, so that they might repent and find salvation through Him.

When secular idolatry and popular culture is worshiped and celebrated, instead of Jesus Christ’s victory on the cross through His Blood as the expiation for the sins of the whole world, those who believe that the Bible is the authoritative Word of God have a decision to make: either stay and worship man’s word or attend a Bible-believing Church.

While Evangelicals, such as myself, welcome all sinners, including gays, into our churches, we do so because we view the church as a “Hospital for Sinners”, which we all are.

The Good News is that we are all sinners saved by His Grace and, as Christians, we are not perfect…just FORGIVEN.

Liberals, through their “religion of social justice”, view the church as the latest “Shrine in which to Worship Political Correctness”.

The problem with their belief is that God always has the last word.

Remember Sodom and Gomorrah?

First, Mr. Potato Head…Now Monopoly…Enough is Enough! Go Woke…Go Broke!

See the source image

“Wokeness” is a pseudonym for oppressive Liberal Cultural Stupidity. – kingjester

FoxBusiness.com reports that

The board game “Monopoly” will be the next classic entertainment brand to receive a socially conscious makeover, publisher Hasbro announced this week.

Hasbro will change all 16 of Monopoly’s “community chest” cards to remove outdated concepts. The company said the classic versions of the cards, which included prompts referencing beauty contests and holiday funds, were “long overdue for a refresh.”

New community chest cards will focus on topics that emphasize “community.” Hasbro asked the public to vote on potential replacements, with rewards for in-game actions such as rescuing a puppy or shopping local among the options. Other cards would penalize players for forgetting to recycle or blasting music too late at night.

“The world has changed a lot since Monopoly became a household name more than 85 years ago, and clearly today community is more important than ever,” said Eric Nyman, Hasbro’s chief consumer officer. “We felt like 2021 was the perfect time to give fans the opportunity to show the world what community means to them through voting on new Community Chest Cards.”

Patrice Onwuka of the Independent Women’s Forum calls the cancellation a ‘misfocus’ of priorities in education.Video
Hasbro said the updated version of Monopoly featuring new community chest cards will be available this fall. It wasn’t clear if a classic version of the game will still be sold.

Not everyone was pleased with Hasbro’s announcement. Critics took to social media to voice their displeasure with the company’s decision.

“Hasbro are wanting to “update” the game: I say, “Don’t tamper with a classic. I still want to win a Beauty Contest and collect £ 10!,” said Gyles Brandreth, a former European Monopoly champion.

“No. Just no. What makes the game so awesome is the dated quality….” another social media user wrote.

The change to Monopoly was announced weeks after Hasbro said it would rebrand its “Mr. Potato Head” product line to “Potato Head.” The company said the move was meant to “better reflect the full line.”

Earlier this month, Dr. Seuss Enterprises drew scrutiny from conservatives after it announced it would no longer publish six of its books due to “insensitive and racist imagery.”

What in the name of Marvin Gardens is going on here?

Who are these Liberal Lilliputians to tell average Americans that we cannot play the game that generations have grown up on just as it is?

Who died and made them the Arbiters of American Culture?

Who gave them any authority at all?

This makes about as much sense as Appointed President Sleepy Joe Biden telling us that “he might allow us ” to celebrate the Fourth of July with our friends and families.

Let me state this as plainly as I know how: Average Americans here in the Heartland think you overeducated and under-raised “Woke” Liberal idiots need to get out of your Moms’ basements and get a real job.

Y’all are just like the bully who tried to pick on me in 7th grade.

He was twice my size and just would not leave me alone.

Finally, one day I had had enough and hit him right between the eyes with my 2S drumsticks which I used to play the Tom in Junior High Band.

We both got sent to the office and when the Assistant Principal asked me what happened, I told him and he laughed and sent me back to class.

After the Mr. Potato Head Fiasco, you would have thought that you self-appointed Arbiters of American Culture would have learned your lesson.

Just wait until your revenue starts to nosedive like Fox News’ did, Hasbro.

You will wish somebody had hit you between the eyes with a pair of drumsticks before you made such a stupid decision.

Liberal Pundits on MSM Call for “Deprogramming” Conservatives

See the source image

“If you dissent, you’re a domestic terrorist, folks. If you dissent from whatever it is the Democrat Party today believes, they are claiming they have a right to shut you down, to delete your tweets.” – Rush Limbaugh

OANN.com reports that

The liberal media appears to be following the lead of Big Tech. Recent efforts have emerged from the left to continue to silence conservative voices.

The most recent example of calls to so-called “deprogram” the right came from former NBC and CBS journalist Katie Couric.

On Real Time with Bill Maher Friday, Couric discussed congressional Republicans who continued to stand behind President Trump and voted against impeachment.

She said, “the question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump?”

Just last week, Washington Post editor and MSNBC contributor Eugene Robinson said the same of President Trump’s supporters.

“There are millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans, who somehow need to be deprogrammed,” Robinson said. “They are members of a cult, the Trumpist cult, and have to be deprogrammed.”

The calls to deprogram Republicans came as Big Tech has banned conservatives, with Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) as the latest GOP target. Greene’s Twitter account was temporarily blocked following her criticism of Georgia’s election results.

The efforts from liberals could worsen under the incoming administration with the formation of a close relationship between Joe Biden and Big Tech.

Former top-level employees of Facebook, Google and Twitter are preparing to join the Biden administration, giving Big Tech even more influence on censorship and the future of Section 230.

Welcome to the USSA, Comrades!

If you have been paying attention to what has been happening in the streets of our major cities for the part 3 weeks, you have seen a bunch of spoiled ungrateful wannabe anarchists, a “Woke Resistance” Movement, if you will, aided by the Far Left Democratic Party, attempt to erase our nation’s history through the toppling of historical statues and the defacing of our nation’s monuments.

Those who are acting in such a disrespectful and ignorant manner echo the sentiments of the 44th President of the United States of America, Barack Hussein Obama, and the rest of the Far Left self-proclaimed geniuses who cost the Democratic Party the Presidency in 2016 and who believe that anybody who works hard for a living and believes in God and Country, is a Jingoistic imbecile.

According to the dictionary, Jingoism is an extreme chauvinism or nationalism marked especially by a belligerent foreign policy.

In other words, being guilty of believing that America is the greatest country on the face of God’s Green Earth and believing in American Exceptionalism.

For the past 2 decades at least, children and young adults, attending American Institutes of Learning from kindergarten to college campuses have been taught by Liberal teachers and professors that America is “just another country” and to be a patriot is to somehow be close-minded, ignorant, and bigoted, not necessarily in that order.

Evidently, the overeducated imbeciles who planned this Marxist uprising which we have witnessed over the last 3 weeks have never understood in their ungrateful little lives what has made and continues to make our country exceptional.

Where the exceptionalism of America lies…is not in the Halls of Power…nor in the Halls of Academia. But, rather in the courage and spirit of the average American. A courage and spirit, which our history proves, has driven American Citizens to build a nation, which is indeed exceptional among all others.

The secret of this country’s exceptionalism is the “Average Joe”, the 9 to 5′er, working himself into the grave to try to provide for his family.

It was this same “Average Joe”, who fired the shot heard around the world and began the War for American Independence, who stormed the beaches of Normandy on D-Day in World War II, who waded through rice paddies in Vietnam, and who swallowed sand in Desert Storm and Desert Shield. The same “Average Joe” who, as a New York City Policeman or Fireman, ran up the stairs of the World Trade Center on 9/11/01, instead of running down them. The same “Average Joe”, who simply wants things to be easier in this life for his children and grandchildren, than he had it.

It is this same “Average Joe”, who takes family and friends in, when they are in the midst of a life-altering tragedy. The same “Average Joe”, who volunteers on a soup line or at a Senior Citizens Home, or, who begins a successful business in his basement.

And, it is this same “Average Joe” whom, being fed up with the Democratic Party’s Far Left Crusade against anything and everything traditionally American, went to the voting booth and elected Donald J. Trump, a Citizen Statesman, as our 45th President.

And that, boys and girls, is why, almost 4 years to the day when average Americans watched with a sense of prideful accomplishment as Donald J. Trump took the Oath of Office, Modern American Liberals are still showing the world their posteriors by claiming that the fellow Americans need to be “deprogrammed”.

To which I reply “BITE ME!”

Their ego-driven political ideology dOES not permit them to consider the reality that theirs is still the minority political ideology in this nation, as shown during last year’s Marxist uprisings by Antifa and Black Lives Matters, in which they demonstrated that they champion a Far Left Fascist political ideology which none but a small minority on the Far Left of the Political Spectrum embrace.

While the East and “Left” Coast are indeed heavily-populated in their metropolitan areas with Liberals (some of them even Legal Citizens), the reality of what actually happened on November 8th, 2016 can been plainly seen on any Electoral Map.

It was an overestimation of their own intellect and an underestimation of the intelligence and unbridled love of average Americans for OUR COUNTRY, that cost the Democrats the Presidency in 2016 and makes their victory in the 2020 Presidential Election very suspicious.

As George Orwell said,

Patriotism is usually stronger than class hatred, and always stronger than internationalism.

So, to summarize, by supporting last year’s Marxist riots in our major cities, by labeling Patriotism as “Jingoism”, and by ridiculing and accusing  those of us who love our country and hold fast to Traditional American Values as being “racists”, in need of deprogramming, the Democratic Party and “President-elect” Joe Biden demonstrate that they do not have a clue concerning what Americans believe.

If I was a Modern American Liberal with any sort of self-awareness, I would be writing Joe Biden a letter, telling him to stay in the squishy middle and not to rock the ship of state by leaning too far to the Left.

Unfortunately, the Far Left “Democratic Socialists” who have taken over the once mainstream Democratic Party are not self-aware.

And, it is this lack of self-awareness that is allowing average Americans to witness the implosion and political extinction of the Democratic Party right before our very eyes.

In the opinion of this 62-year-old, sitting in the Northwest corner of the Magnolia State in America’s Heartland, Modern American Liberals, and their ideological leaders, who trod the Halls of Power with impunity, underestimated the American Spirit, just as King George and the British Aristocracy did, so many years ago.

As our enemies, both foreign and domestic, have discovered since the birth of our nation, Americans will fight for our freedom.

We showed this fact to the world on November 8th, 2016.

And now, 4 years later, we face a new fight, defending our American Liberty which was given to us by God Almighty and paid for with the blood of brave young men and women who went before us.

May God Bless you and your family and keep you safe for these next four years.

New Years Day 2021: Facing America’s Uncertain Future

As we begin a New Year, we find our Sovereign Nation more divided than it has been in decades, almost as it was before the start of the Civil War.

Americans have had to endure a devastating coronavirus, released by Communist China, which took a  horrible toll in terms of American lives, businesses and jobs.

Then, just as Americans were starting to see a light at the end of the tunnel, it turned out to be an oncoming train in the form of Election Fraud, in which a demented old man, who could not even draw a campaign crowd of 200, supposedly inspired 80 million Americans to vote him in as President of the United States of America.

And now, the Democratic Hierarchy and the Vichy Republicans are reticent to actually expose the truth about what actually happened on November 3, 2020, while polls show that the majority of Americans want to know.

Why are those who claim to be our “public servants” so adamant about going against the wishes of the American people?

According to a man who was an American Legend, it all has to do with the way Liberals look at things…

…I always thought I was a liberal but I came up terribly surprised when I found I was a right-wing conservative extremist…I have always listened to every human being I’ve ever met about how I should feel.  But this so-called new liberal group… they never listen to your point of view and they make a decision as to what you think and they’re articulate enough and in control of enough of the press to force that image out for the average person.  For some reason, maybe it’s these pictures, they have not been able to do that with me…it hasn’t affected my career in popularity in spite of the fact that they’ve tried to make them do it.  There isn’t a hell of a lot we can do to change human behavior.  We keep making laws to try to change human behavior but we can’t do it…You’re being conned into Keynesianism and socialism now but it isn’t going to stop the selfishness of human behavior.  It isn’t going to stop the greed.  If you take $20 and give a dollar to every son of a b!tch in the room, you come back a year later one of the b@st@rds will have most of the money.  It’s just human nature.  We’re never gonna whip it with a lot of laws. 

As communication gets better and you make people conscious of somebody in trouble, starving or something like that, the average person will help…I think there are people who try to affect a thinking where they know more than some other son of a b!tch and try to pull a false impression on what human nature is.  We’ve proven we go back to hope at the first opportunity…and bam they’re out there ready to grab it.  So we are optimistic; we have to be optimistic.  What else would we be if you lose optimism?” –  John Wayne

The negativity and bitterness of the Modern American Liberals to whom the Duke was referring has been on display for the entire world to see, ever since the night of November 8, 2016, when reality threw a bucket of cold water in their faces, putting them on notice that average Americans were tired of their failed political philosophy and their perpetually morose opinion about the Greatest Country on the Face of the Earth.

Ever since President Donald J. Trump took office and for 8 long years under his predecessor, Barack Hussein Obama, there has been constant chorus provided by the Nattering Nabobs of Negativism, now known as Modern American Liberals, concerning how uncaring, how bigoted, how xenophobic, how narrow-minded, and how just plain awful and stupid average Americans are to continue to love this country, to honor its flag, and to continue to hold dear the America Legacy of Traditional Faith and Values.

For proof of this, please check out the protests during the Confirmation Hearings for Supreme Court Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh, in which Liberals were bussed to Capitol Hill in order to not only disrupt those hearings but intimidate Republican Senators and the sham impeachment of President Trump over a normal phone call with the President of Ukraine.

Luckily, the overwhelming majority of those of us who live between the coasts did not live our lives like the mindless lemmings whom I have named the “New Bolsheviks”.

The rugged individualism of previous generations of Americans flows through our veins. The American “Can-Do” Spirit has taken us from the bottom of the Ocean to the surface of the moon.

The overwhelming majority of Americans will stand by one another in times of crisis, as shown be the outpouring of support throughout the past year’s hurricanes and horrible events such as the California Wildfires.

The intestinal fortitude that is our heritage as Americans…along with that Still, Small Voice which still resides in each and every one of us, will continue, I pray, to guide our nation, and spur us on, to stay vigilant and protect our American Freedom, just as my Parents’ Generation did, against the Axis of Evil.

It is that same Divine Spark which leads our Best and Brightest as they protest and serve our nation’s interests in all corners of the globe. It is also found in our First Responders and the men and women of Law Enforcement who are willing to give their lives to protect our municipalities, such as Corporal Ronil Singh,

I thank God that we have had an AMERICAN PRESIDENT who is not afraid to support them and to take the stand he has for our nation’s safety.

The Great Communicator, President Ronald Reagan, summarized what I have been trying to say better than I ever could.

In 1964, in his famous stump speech, “A Time for Choosing”, The Great Communicator said,

It’s time we asked ourselves if we still know the freedoms intended for us by the Founding Fathers. James Madison said, “We base all our experiments on the capacity of mankind for self government.”

This idea — that government was beholden to the people, that it had no other source of power — is still the newest, most unique idea in all the long history of man’s relation to man. This is the issue of this election: Whether we believe in our capacity for self-government or whether we abandon the American Revolution and confess that a little intellectual elite in a far-distant capital can plan our lives for us better than we can plan them ourselves.

You and I are told we must choose between a left or right, but I suggest there is no such thing as a left or right. There is only an up or down. Up to man’s age-old dream–the maximum of individual freedom consistent with order — or down to the ant heap of totalitarianism.

As we enter the New Year with an uncertain and frightening future facing our country, it will be up to us to continue what was begun on the night of November 8, 2016 and continue the fight to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN, regardless of what happens next Wednesday during the certification.

While I do not know what tomorrow holds, I know Who holds tomorrow…and me.

“And, life is worth the living, just because HE LIVES.”

Happy New Year, Americans!

“Morning Joe” Beats “Fox and Friends” in Morning Cable News Ratings…Actions Have Consequences

I’m so old that I remember when Fox News Channel was not a member of the Main Stream Media.

Newsmax.com reports that

MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” beat rival “Fox & Friends” in the morning cable news ratings for the first time since 2001 last week, AdWeek reported.

“Morning Joe,” hosted by Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski pulled in an average 1.6 million total viewers for the week vs. 1.4 million for “Fox & Friends.”

The news comes amid amid a ratings slide for Fox News Channel in recent weeks after conservative viewers announced on social media platforms their displeasure with Fox coverage, culminating on election night Fox called Arizona for Joe Biden earlier than other news organizations and proclaimed Biden “president elect” along with other mainstream outlets while President Donald Trump continues his election challenges and states have yet to officially certify results.

“Republicans grew tired of being lectured and insulted by some of Fox News’ anchors,” Red State said, reporting on the news. “We’ve seen it with Chris Wallace, Neil Cavuto, and Sandra Smith (caught on a hot mic). More recently, we saw Leland Vittert lose his mind on a Trump surrogate. Republicans don’t need a news network that lies to them. They do need one that doesn’t needlessly insult them and their viewpoints.”

Red State noted that while Fox has lost views, Newsmax TV has seen a “ratings boom.”

According to the Old Testament Book of Proverbs,

Pride goeth before destruction and an haughty spirit before a fall.

That scripture has never been truer than in the case of Fox News.

Americans have noticed that Fox news has been traveling in a Liberal direction ever since Rupert Murch left the running of the channel to his sons.

There are more Liberal Pundits and Anchors on Fox News than there have ever been in its history.

And, those who were not known not known until recently to be Liberal, such as Steve Doocy, Sandra Smith, and Jedidiah Bila seem to be relishing the opportunity to drive away the audience which made Fox News Channel number one in the ratings for many, many years.

What is maddening to me is the fact that President Trump went out of his way to be kind to them, helping their ratings over the last four years through live phone calls and exclusive interviews, including one morning when he made a spontaneous appearance on “Fox and Friends”, consenting to a live on the spot interview with Steve Doocy.

So, why has Fox News repeatedly bitten the hand that feeds them?

Poor management.

The change in political viewpoint at Fox Bews has to be the worst marketing decision since “New Coke”.

And, just like New Coke, it has left a bitter taste in the mouths of a lot of Americans.

So, have the powers-that-be at FNC issued an apology yet for the mistake which has driven them to the bottom of the television ratings?

Heck no.

They just keep doubling down on stupid, like AOC at a MENSA Meeting.

Fox News not only jumped the shark…they are gleefully feeding the crocodile known as the Democratic Party, hoping that it will eat them last.

Their arrogance is exceeded only by their stupidity.

Kimmel and Fellow “Liberal Elite” Use Emmy Awards Show to Attack Trump and the Average Americans Who Voted for Him

Overestimation of their own intelligence and underestimation of the intelligence and backbone of average Americans, here in America’s Heartland, is what cost Modern American Liberals the White House and a Congressional Majority.

You would think that they would be trying to suck up to average Americans, instead of didactically instructing us as to what we MUST believe.

Because when they do that, it always backfires.

Please reference November 8th, 2016. – kingjester, March 6, 2017

FoxNews.com reports that

The 2020 Emmys kicked off during unprecedented times with a fakeout that saw the host pretend to present the opening monologue for an audience that wasn’t really there.

The 72nd Emmy Awards are without a doubt the most unique award show in recent memory thanks to the coronavirus pandemic forcing the broadcast to go virtual and forego the large gathering of celebrities dressed to the nines on the red carpet.

Still, that didn’t stop host Jimmy Kimmel from making the most out of a bad situation, kicking off the show with an opening monologue that poked fun at the pandemic, Trump supporters and Hollywood.

The host took the stage to thunderous applause from the audience, all of whom appeared to be live and in-person as he mocked the “frivolous and unnecessary” awards show. However, midway through the opening monologue, it became clear that the footage was just being reused from a previous show. Kimmel hung a lantern on that fact when he spotted himself in the crowd.

“Of course I’m here all alone, of course we don’t have an audience!” Kimmel said. “This isn’t a MAGA rally, it’s the Emmys. Instead of the live audience, we took a page from baseball and did cardboard cutouts of the nominees.”

With that, the host highlighted some cardboard cutouts in the crowd at the Staples Center before awkwardly noticing that “Ozark” star Jason Bateman was there in person. The star asked if he could stay because he’s been going crazy in quarantine. When Kimmel suggested that he could stay despite safety regulations if he agreed to laugh at his jokes.

“I’m out,” Bateman curtly replied.

The show then forged ahead with Kimmel revealing that more than 100 cameras were dispatched to stars all around the country so that they could tune in and give their acceptance speeches if they won. Jennifer Aniston arrived in person to announce that “Schitt’s Creek” actress Catharine O’Hara took home the first award of the night for outstanding lead actress in a comedy series. O’Hara’s on-screen husband, Eugene Levy, took home the next award for his role on the same show.

The series pulled off the hat trick by taking home the first three awards of the night when series creator and star Daniel Levy brought home the Emmy for outstanding writing in a comedy series.

“Getting to write David Rose, getting to write this show, getting to tell these stories has been the greatest and most cathartic experience of my life,” the younger Levy said after tearing up thanking his Emmy-winning dad.

Things got slightly political once again before the announcement of Daniel Levy again as the winner for outstanding directing in a comedy series when “Barry” actor Anthony Carrigan somewhat reprised his role from the show. He engaged in a bit with Kimmel in which he pretended to be a Russian operative impersonating a mail carrier out to steal mail-in-voting ballots. When Kimmel wasn’t fooled, Carrigan’s character settled for handing over the Emmy winners envelopes.

The “Schitt’s Creek” winning streak continued for a fifth award when Daniel won outstanding supporting actor in a comedy series.

“OK, the Internet is about to turn on me,” he joked before giving his acceptance speech.

“Schitt’s Creek” continued its winning streak with Annie Murphy taking home the award for outstanding supporting actress in a comedy series. Finally, the show maintained its winning streak by taking home the coveted award for outstanding comedy series.

Daniel spent his moment speaking to encourage fans to register and vote in November.

“I’m so sorry for making this political,” he said before turning things over to his dad, who promptly gave thanks to everyone involved, including his son.

Kimmel kept the jabs at Trump coming by noting that he should have built his wall on the northern border of the U.S., taking a shot at the Canada-based “Schitt’s Creek” cast.

“Has he tweeted yet? Oh, it’s Sunday, he’s probably at Church,” Kimmel said, mocking the president.

David Letterman arrived next for a pre-recorded segment in which he announced the first non-”Schitt’s Creek” related award of the night, which went to “Last Week Tonight” with John Oliver.

As the show moved out of comedy, Regina King took home the Emmy for outstanding lead actress in a limited series or movie for her leading role in HBO’s “Watchmen.” She was the first of the night to acknowledge the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who died earlier this week at age 87. The actress was wearing a bright pink blazer and a black t-shirt with a photo of Breonna Taylor on it.

Mark Ruffalo kept the political ball rolling, giving a speech next after taking home the award for outstanding lead actor in a limited series or movie where he encouraged people to vote in November for “compassion and kindness” rather than a country of “hatred and division” that’s only for “a certain type of people.”

Damon Lindelof and Cord Jefferson got to speak next after winning for their writing on “Watchmen.” In his speech, Jefferson acknowledged the victims of the 1921 racially motivated massacre in Tulsa, Okla. that was used as the backdrop for the series.

“This country neglects and forgets its own history at its own peril often and I think that we should never forget them,” he said. “Thank you so much for this honor.”

Fortunately for viewers, the show wasn’t completely without levity. Kimmel introduced a segment halfway through the awards show that saw famous TV celebrities like Will Arnett, Kene Thompson, Bob Newhart and more explain what they’re doing in quarantine. The bit featured former “Saturday Night Live” star David Spade dress up as “Tiger King” subject Joe Exotic. 

First off, what in the world is the matter with the Producers of the Emmy Awards?

Couldn’t they find someone who is actually entertaining to host the show?

Or, someone who actually knows that America is a Constitutional Republic, not a Third World Country, where our leader is chosen by mob rule?

I stopped watching awards shows, such as the Emmys, years ago, as they did indeed become more and more of a Sounding Board for Far Left Political Opinion and less of a showcase of the brightest and best in their respective entertainment industries.

Those “celebrities” on the Left of the Political Spectrum who voted for Hillary Clinton for President back in 2016, continue to throw the longest temper tantrum over the results of one of the biggest upsets in an American Presidential Election that the world has ever seen.

These self-proclaimed activists, are making a lie out of the claim that they have made for years that they are the most tolerant…and “gifted” among us.

In fact, these sore losers remind me of the hysterically sobbing children that you hear in every Walmart across the country.

It’s not that those children are crying because they are physically hurt. Just like these Hollywood Liberals, they’re crying because they did not get their way.

This epic meltdown by those who are paid handsomely to entertain us is a direct result of an isolated ignorance of average Americans’ desire to rid ourselves of those in the Halls of Power who told us repeatedly that they knew what was best for us and “who we were”, while their actual mission was to turn America into a Third-World Barrio in their quest to make us a Socialist Paradise.

All during the Presidential Campaign, the Democratic Party, along with those in “Showbiz”, through their minions in the Main Stream Media, assured us that it was a foregone conclusion that Hillary Clinton would be our 45th president.

There is a reason for that.

The Liberal Elite have always believed that our country revolves around the big metropolitan areas in the Northeast and in California. They have always looked down their noses at what they derisively call “Flyover Country”, the same area that many of us call the Heartland of America or simply “home”.

This meltdown which promises to last way past Inauguration Day, is a reaction caused by their own unbridled and unsupported arrogance.

Just like their fellow Modern American Liberals who run Democratic Party, the disconnected “dancing monkeys” in Tinsel Town and the Big Apple never saw Trump’s victory coming.

At this point, all their incessant national temper tantrum is doing, is making them look like fools.

I don’t remember any of us average Americans asking them for their opinion as to how we should vote, do you?

Isn’t it funny how those who claim to be the most tolerant among us, are actually the most intolerant of all of us?

Average Americans continue to be treated as subhuman by the self-proclaimed “Smartest People in the Room”.

These “spoiled brats”, such as those seen on the Emmy Awards last night, still weeping and wailing in the throes of self-afflicted agony over the miserable failure of Hillary Clinton to defeat Donald J. Trump on November 8, 2016, do not care about the “Will of the People”, but, rather, they are intent on reinstating. restoring, and enforcing their Far Left Political Ideology, resulting in a “Tyranny of the Minority”, which we are seeing play out, as their “Fellow Travelers” attempt to hold on to their “FREE STUFF” bestowed upon them by the “benevolent masters” of the Democrat Party, by trying to block President Donald J. Trump’s mandate which he was given by the average Americans who elected him the 45th President of the United States of America.

The use of Karl Marx/Saul Alinsky-inspired “Class War Politics”, as taught by Liberal professors in American Universities and preached by Far Left Radical Organizations like Antifa and BLM, who are in turn funded by Former Nazi Sympathizer and Billionaire George Soros, has inspired these “protesters”, leading to a divided nation, the likes of which has not been seen since “The War of Northern Aggression”.

When our Founding Fathers sat down to provide form and substance to the laws and procedures for governing this new country, which they had fought and won a bloody war over, by pledging their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor, they were very aware of the price of tyranny.

They determined that this new nation would be a Constitutional Republic, having had their fill of monarchies.

And, that Sacred Document, our United States Constitution, gives each of us out here in the Heartland of America, between the East and Left Coasts, the right, including President Donald J. Trump, the man whom the “Dancing Monkeys” of the Television Industry attempted to vilify last night, to speak our minds and be heard.

According to a Gallup Poll, published on January 9, 2020, Conservatives are still the leading Political Ideology in America at 37%, followed closely by “self-described” Moderates at 35%. Liberals remain the Minority Political Ideology in America, comprising only 24% of our population.

The fact is, a majority of those working in the Entertainment Industry are Liberal in their Political Ideology…at least, it is evident that the most vocal of them are.

Therefore, please allow me in summation, to address the Special Snowflakes of the Glitterati…

To those of you in Tinsel Town who believe that your ability to stand of a piece of tape on a set, mug for the camera, and read lines on a cue card or even memorize a few of them, somehow gives you the authority to insult, demean, and act superior to those of us here in the Heartland who were responsible for the election of Donald J. Trump as President of the United States of America…HERE’S A REALITY CHECK FOR YOU:

Average Americans, such as myself and my readers, really don’t give a tinker’s damn about your opinions of our intelligence or the Citizen Statesman whom we put into the Oval Office on November 8, 2016 and are about to reelect on November 3, 2020.

There is a reason why those of us who actually watch TV are spending more and more time on channels such as Circle, the Inspiration Channel, and MeTV:

The majority of modern television programs STINK ON ICE.

We would rather watch the old television programs which were actually entertaining…shows like Walker, Texas Ranger, The Virginian, Good Times, The Golden Girls…and even Lassie.

Come to think of it…when compared to y’all…Lassie was a better actor.

Bubba Wallace Calls NASCAR Fans “Simple-Minded”, Says That “You Do Not Give Yourself Enough Time…to Educate Yourself”

Richard-Petty-Motorsports-Black-Lives-Matter-car

https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1280117571874951170?s=20

FoxNews.com reports that

Fox News contributor and Fox Nation host Lawrence Jones sat down with NASCAR’s Darrell ‘Bubba’ Wallace Jr. to talk about a series of controversies that have ensnared him, his sport, and the country since the police-involved death of George Floyd in Minneapolis.

Wallace, 26 years old and the only active Black driver in the NASCAR Cup Series, has been an outspoken figure in recent weeks. Following Floyd’s death, he painted his No. 43 car black and displayed the phrases “Black Lives Matter” and “Compassion, love and understanding.”

“People see the organization Black Lives Matter and they have their criticism of the organization,” said Jones, when they spoke on June 30 in a special episode of “One Nation with Lawrence Jones” on Fox Nation.

“But when you put Black Lives Matter on your car, what does it mean to you?” he asked.

“That Black lives matter, too,” said Wallace, “We just want to be treated equally, that’s what we’re fighting for.”

‘”Black lives matter just as much as White lives matter, just as much as Hispanic lives matter,” he continued, “We’re all equal. We were all made the same. We all bleed the same color. It hurts when we bleed.”

Wallace became the center of the attention himself after the FBI launched an investigation into a noose found hanging in a garage assigned to his team at Talladega Superspeedway in June.

The biggest names in NASCAR, including drivers and fans, rallied around Wallace in an emotional scene, which Wallace told Jones was very meaningful to him.

The FBI subsequently concluded that no federal crime had been committed after they determined that the noose had been there since at least 2019, and therefore it could not have been directed at Wallace.

In the aftermath of the investigation, Wallace received criticism from some, including President Trump, who suggested that Wallace should apologize to those who defended him against a potential hate crime.

This Fox Nation interview was recorded before President Trump wrote those remarks on Twitter.

Jones observed that Wallace quickly spoke out in defense of another NASCAR driver, Kyle Larson, who was overheard during a virtual racing event in April using the N-word.

“You immediately said [Larson] should be forgiven and there was still a place for them,” remarked Jones. “Do you feel like that same level of grace and forgiveness was extended to you?”

“By drivers — for sure. By the simple-minded fans — no,” said Wallace. “You’re never gonna get that from them.”

“They’ll always kind of carry that chip on their shoulder and do everything to knock you off your pedestal. So their job is to always deliver hate — immediately deliver hate before the facts are even given.”

In fact, Wallace said he has learned to generally disregard the opinions of so-called “simple-minded” fans.

“You don’t give yourself enough time to understand, to educate yourself,” said Wallace, describing the mindset of some of his detractors. “You quickly just jump to a conclusion.”

“People say the same about me, but I’m just doing what I was delivered facts on,” he continued, referencing the FBI investigation.

“The people that don’t want change, the ones that don’t see how removing Confederate flag creates so much more opportunities for our sport to grow — they don’t want our sport to grow,” he concluded.

You know, gentle readers, we should have seen this coming.

The destruction of NASCAR as Americans have known and enjoyed it is well underway, following the same path as the NFL…right down the ol’ porcelain receptacle.

If I could talk to Bubba Wallace, I would tell him,

“Bubba, it’s NEVER been about the color of your skin. A racecar does not recognize the color of its driver.

Fans were more than willing to support you.

Great black athletes throughout my 61 years of life, from Bob Gibson, Lou Brock, and Hank Aaron to Jim Brown, Walter Payton, and Paul Warfield have literally had millions of Americans of all races appreciating their skill and cheering them on in their chosen athletic profession.

The thing is, as fierce a competitor as Bob Gibson was, famous for “brushing back” hitters from the plate with one of his legendary fastballs thrown outside the strike zone, I do not ever remember as a lad hearing him call the fans “simple-minded”.

None of the other men that I mentioned did, either.

I imagine that your ego took a bit of a beating when the FBI came back with its finding that the rope which you identified as a “noose” was simply a rope.

However, that does not give you the right to insult Americans who saved and scrimped in order to attend NASCAR races.

And, as far as NASCAR Fans flying the Confederate Flag at NASCAR Races, they have that right as Americans.

Just as you have the right to drive a car bearing the name of an organization whose leadership have self-identified as being a Marxist political organization.

Yes, you have that right.

And, the Liberals who have taken over NASCAR have the right to attempt to ban Confederate Flags from a sport which originated in North Carolina and whose fans are mainly located in the Southern part of the United States of America.

And, just as happened with the NFL, the fans have the right not to attend NASCAR races and not to watch them on TV…and not to buy from those who advertise with NASCAR.

So, if you want to call NASCAR fans “simple-minded”, go right ahead.

However, considering the axiom that “actions have consequences”, you may want to look in the mirror before you call anyone else “simple-minded”.”

Liberals ruin everything.

Until He Comes,

Education Sec DeVos Says Federal Funds May Be Withheld From School Districts That Do Not Make an Honest Effort to Open This Fall

betsy_devos_staying_power_07273_s878x585

https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1280232979781111808?s=20

FoxNews.com reports that

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos told “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Tuesday that her department is “seriously considering” withholding federal funding from school districts that do not make a honest effort to bring students back for in-person classes this fall.

“We are looking at this very seriously, this is a very serious issue across the country,” DeVos told host Tucker Carlson. “Kids have got to continue learning and schools have got to open up. There’s got to be a concerted effort to address the needs of all kids, and adults who are fearmongering and making excuses simply have to stop doing it and turn their attention to what is right for them and the students and their families.”

Later in the interview, DeVos told Carlson that “if nothing else, this whole coronavirus has made more and more parents aware of what’s going on in their own children’s schools — or what isn’t going on.

“Right here in suburban D.C., one of the most elite public school districts in the country — over $16,000 [spent] per student per year — they had an absolute disaster this spring,” she added, apparently referring to Fairfax County Public Schools in northern Virginia.

“And now this fall they are suggesting that as a way to start school again you can choose zero days a week for your child to be in school or two days a week,” she continued. “That’s not a choice, that’s a pretense of a choice.

“So, more and more families are at a point of demanding that their kids would be able to continue to learn and they want more options and choices for their kids, too.”

At a White House event earlier Tuesday, Trump vowed that his administration would “put pressure on governors and everybody else to open the schools” after noting that administrators in Florida recently announced plans to reopen schools in that state starting next month.

Tuesday night, DeVos singled out Florida State Education Commissioner Richard Corcoran for praise, saying that he had given students and parents “a lot of latitude” for handling various issues thrown up by the pandemic.

“What the president and all of those at a roundtable today made very clear is the expectation that kids have got to continue their learning,” she said. “There’s no other reason to withhold full-time education.”

I agree with President Trump and Secretary DeVos.

Schools should be open.

Many parents are not equipped to provide an adequate education for their children at home.

Some are, but others do not have the educational background nor the temperament to facilitate the appropriate education of their child.

And, yes, there is indoctrination going on in some school systems,

That is where responsible parents come in.

Be involved in your child’s education. know their teachers and talk to them.

Help you child with their homework.

Look through their textbooks.

School is much more that reading, writing, and ‘rithmatic.

It’s about learning how to get along with other people.

it’s about learning discipline.

It’s about learning how to talk to other people.

It’s about learning about yourself and what you are capable of achieving.

Today’s young people are ahead of preceding generations in terms of understanding technology.

However, they are behind previous generations in terms of people skills.

Learning how to communicate with others is a skill which children will use all of their adult lives.

It is imperative that schools reopen.

You can hug a Playstation or an iPad…but they can’t hug you back.

Finally, those who are intentionally spreading fear are clamoring for the schools to remain shut for a very simple reason: control and isolation.

Like the Marxists before them, they are trying to control our children and to raise a generation of “useful idiots”.

We must keep our Sovereign Nation free, strong,…and educated.

Liberals are Doing to NASCAR What They Did to Country Music…and It “Ain’t” Good

Richard-Petty-Motorsports-Black-Lives-Matter-car

https://twitter.com/toddstarnes/status/1275618763258441728?s=20

Back on February 21st of this year, Zachary J. Lechner, a historian at the State Historical Society of North Dakota and author of “The South of the Mind: American Imaginings of White Southernness, 1960-1980.”, wrote the following op ed for WashingtonPost.com

On Sunday, President Trump went racing. More accurately, this “man of the people,” in the words of driver Kurt Busch, opened the Daytona 500, known as the Super Bowl of auto racing. Besides calling out, “Gentlemen, start your engines,” and taking a lap around the track in his presidential limousine, Trump reinforced the Republican Party’s recent success in yoking itself to the cultural allure of NASCAR.

The president reminded the enthusiastic crowd of more than 100,000 people (and an even larger television audience) that “NASCAR fans never forget that no matter who wins the race, what matters most is God, family and country.” This rhetoric recalls comments made by President Richard M. Nixon during the opening of the Grand Ole Opry House in Nashville in March 1974. On stage that evening, Nixon told musician Roy Acuff that country music “talks about family, it talks about religion, the faith in God that is so important to our country and particularly to our family life. And as we all know, country music radiates a love of this nation, patriotism.”

The similarity is no coincidence. While country music and NASCAR have grown in national popularity over the past 50 years, both are still distinguished by their associations with white Southern culture. These two moments expose how the GOP has adopted a symbolic politics based on a singular version of working-class white Southernness as a predominantly right-leaning cultural entity. Privileging patriotism, Christian faith, family-centeredness and masculinity — basically anything conservatives consider “traditional” — and harnessing the power and popularity of country music and stock-car racing, the GOP has redefined the common man and staked out a challenge to the Democratic Party’s claim to be the party of the common man.

…The GOP’s NASCAR/Nashville linkage is a crucial aspect of its divisive efforts to weaponize working-class white Southernness as uniquely authentic and quintessentially American. Trump critic and country artist Maren Morris lamented that the country music community was deeply polarized (in more colorful language). So, too, is the nation. And with savviness — and a fair amount of cynicism hiding behind the flag-waving — Republicans continue to deploy their cultural Southern strategy to profit from that polarization.

Now, what it the name of Cousin Minnie Pearl’s Hat Tag a professor from North Dakota has done to consider him to be an expert on NASCAR or country music is anybody’s guess.

Judging from the content of the article, I would say, not much.

Anyway, if you will notice, the professor trashed both NASCAR and traditional country music as being too masculine and too Southern.

As a lifelong Son of the South, I would answer in return,

“So, what’s wrong with that, Skippy?’

Evidently, in the eyes of Modern American Liberals, a lot was wrong with both, as they have turned country music produced in Nashville into pop music, sung by guys and galls whose only experience riding a horse lasted as long as their Dad put quarters in the machine in front of Walmart.

Having been successful in infiltrating country music with a bunch of “pajamaboys” and “Karens”, the Liberals have now turned their sights on Nascar, beginning with banning the historical flag of the region in which the sport began and where the overwhelming majority of their fans live and work.

According to History.com

NASCAR held its first Strictly Stock race on June 19, 1949, at the Charlotte Speedway in North Carolina. Some 13,000 fans were on hand to watch Glenn Dunnaway finish the 200-lap race first in his Ford; however, Jim Roper (who drove a Lincoln) collected the $2,000 prize after Dunnaway was disqualified for illegal rear springs on his vehicle. In the early years of NASCAR, competitors drove the same types of cars that people drove on the street–Buicks, Cadillacs, Oldsmobiles, among others–with minimal modifications. (Today, the cars are highly customized.)

In 1950, the first NASCAR-based track, the Darlington Raceway in South Carolina, opened. More new raceways followed, including the Daytona International Speedway, which opened in 1959. Lee Petty won the first Daytona 500, which was run on February 22 of that year. The Daytona 500 became NASCAR’s season opener and one of its premiere events. Lee Petty’s son Richard, who began his racing career in 1958, won the Daytona 500 a record seven times and became NASCAR’s first superstar before retiring in 1992. On February 18, 1979, the first live flag-to-flag coverage of the Daytona 500 was broadcast on television. An end-of-the-race brawl between drivers Cale Yarborough and Donnie and Bobby Allison was a huge publicity generator and helped boost NASCAR’s popularity on a national scale.

In 1972, France’s son, William France Jr., took over the presidency of NASCAR from his father. Over the next three decades, the younger France (1933-2007) was instrumental in transforming NASCAR from a regional sport popular primarily in the southeast U.S. into one with a global fan base. France led NASCAR into a new era of lucrative corporate sponsorships and billion-dollar TV contracts, which continues to this day. 

As recent events, such as the banning of the Confederate Battle Flag and the kerfluffle over Bubba Wallace seeing a noose that wasn’t really there, demonstrate, Liberals are well on their way to taking over the “divisive” product of “Southern Culture” that was the glorious, gritty, exciting sport of NASCAR.

So, with Bubba Wallace proudly displaying “Black Lives Matter” on his car, can we expect the LGBTQ Pick Satin Special to be at the Daytona 500 in the near future?

That would give “Drag Racing” a whole new meaning, wouldn’t it?

…Forgive me, Lord, and be with all the starving pygmies in New Guinea. Amen.
