None Dare Call It Child Abuse

Parents everywhere you, your child’s teachers, and professors have been emotional, socially, and mentally abusing your children.

We as a society are poisoning our children’s minds. We are teaching them to hate themselves, hate their people and despise their country all in the name of stopping hate.

The damage we are doing to our children has stunted their developmental, intellectual, and societal growth as well as critical thinking skills. Our kids can no longer react rationally or adapt to disappointment or loss or tolerate people who think different than them.

Our Schools and colleges are poisoning our children’s minds with “political correctness” that is anything but correct. How can correctness mean you believe that half our country hates other people because they are different or that they see hate as the primary motivator of other people? Their irrational fear is not based on reality or logic but on pure ignorance.

Triggers are terms used for people suffering from emotional and mental conditions. They are not part of well adjusted and happy people. Setting our children in safe spaces is emotionally isolating them and reinforcing their conditions.

We have denied our children the right to have a happy life regardless of their circumstances. Instead, we make them angry and miserable and full of hate. These conditions will hold them back for the rest of their lives and will affect them far more than any other outside influence. It is the oppression of one’s mind.

Demand your colleges and Universities stop poisoning our children’s minds. If we have to, we will need to start lawsuits to crush them financially if they do not stop. Demand they fire professors that are radicalizing them and turning them into mind numb drones. We must petition our government to withdraw funds from Schools that teach hate and stop sending our kids to schools that teach them intolerance and hate.

They may hide behind freedom of speech. But freedom of speech does not mean allowing our children to be mentally and emotionally damaged.

There is a word for hurting a child to pursue your hateful agenda.
It is called brainwashing and yes child abuse of the worst kind.

What Keeps People Down?

What keeps people down? Why do some people fare better while others struggle? Why do some groups of people, generally, do better than others? Is it some magical privilege bestowed on one group at the expense of all others? It is one group keeping the others down?
Let’s put all that to rest.
The problem is not all about our environment. Environment is the fuel to the fire. However,  the problem lies in our brain and how all of our brains work regardless of skin color, ethnicity or any other factor.
Our brain is not a single entity. We have the upper cortex which controls our higher brain function that gives us the ability to think, use reason and learn. Deep within our lower cortex is a small section about the size of an acorn that is our primitive brain. It deals solely on our most basic survival instincts. It hs no ability to think, and it does not reason; it has no higher brain function at all. It is the part of our brain that reminds us when we need to eat, breath, and gives us a kick of adrenalin when we are in danger or sense danger. It controls our fight or flight reflex.
When we are angry, offended, raged, outraged, fearful, anxious or threatened our primitive brain activates and in turn inhibits our higher brain function. It diminishes our ability to reason, use logic, and learn. People who are in a constant state of fear or rage or have a hair trigger sense of offense live in nearly a constant state of fight or flight and this keeps their primitive brain active which in turn inhibits their ability to use higher brain functions.
Even the most intelligent people lose their capacity to think rationally or cognitively when their primitive brain takes over. We have seen even Harvard and Yale educated students and even faculty reduced to mob like behavior lacking all of their higher brain function while in this state.
We simply cannot use both our cognitive ability and our survival instinct at the same time. However, there lies the answer. Our primitive brain inhibits our higher brain function, but our higher brain function also inhibits our primitive brain. In other words, when we apply reason and logic and use our higher brain function it turns off our fight or flight reflex and allows for an environment of learning, reason and higher cognitive thinking. That, in turn, leads to a happier, healthier, anxiety free, and a more prosperous life. We progress when we are not spending the bulk of our energy in survival mode.
As a society, we are doing it all wrong. We are feeding our primitive brain by encouraging rage, resentment, distrust, and division. Even the way we attempt to combat these things only causes more and perpetuates it. We call people racists and haters. We call people privileged or assign blame instead of using our higher brain faculties to solve problems. The answer is to appeal to reason instead of anger and to retrain our brain to not reflexively go into a state of fight or flight unless we truly are in danger. We need not listen to those who fan the flames because they are keeping people from using their higher brain function and realizing their potential. It is they who keep people in continuous survival mode and in a constant state of anger, rage, fear, resentment, and hopelessness instead of encouraging people to use their natural cognitive ability to solve problems and use critical thinking skills and react to their environment in an intelligent and deliberate manner. If this happened, you would see the world change for the better and unshackle people from a life of constant stress, fear, rage, resentment, hopelessness, and hate.
Some call that a privilege, but no. It is everyone’s birthright.

Its Confirmed. The Republican Party (GOP) is Racist or Infested With Racists or Something

I think at this point, its pretty clear that racism is rampant in the GOP.  And I think it always was.  It just took a Black man becoming president to bring it back to the surface.


According to Michael Steel, former RNC chair, the Southern Strategy is alive and well.

I’m building a YouTube playlist for your convenience.

OWS Movement Imported From Spain But Made in America

When the Wall Street banks collapsed under the Bush/Rove/GOP, it sucked the wind out of the industrialized economies and quickly bled out to across the globe.  If you watched anything other than Beck/O’Reily/Hannity et. al. you will remember the first major protests took place in Iceland.

Meanwhile back at home, a suppressed albeit deeply, cherished, American tradition called racism was reignited when Empire Murdock planted the first images of two adorable, little, chocolate-colored girls playing in the Lincoln Bedroom into the collective brains of pasty White America some of whom in turn, strapped guns to their hips and took to the streets in costumes reminiscent our racist forefathers.

God forgive us for being distracted while the rest of the world began to burn.

The OWS movement came to the western world through Spain.  By early 2011, unemployment in Spain was approaching 21% (46% among youth) as the Arab Spring hit Egypt.  On May 15, 2011 a series of protest, coordinated through Twitter and Facebook, unfolded in 58 Spanish cities.

By now you’ve heard of the New York City General Assembly. They began this summer as a series of meetings “on the fourth floor of 16 Beaver Street, near Wall Street. In addition to New Yorkers, there were also Egyptians, Spaniards, Japanese and Greeks.  Dick Army was not among them.

Due to the lack of centralized coordination its hard to know for sure but as this writing there are an estimated 300 OWS protests in the US alone, over 3,000 arrests.  So far, no sign of the tea party.

Here’s the map.

One of the several Salt Lake OWS Facebook page is approaching 9000 members. You will not find a larger Facebook group specific to Utah. Here’s the local website

The biggest camp is at Pioneer Park downtown (map). Here’s a good video Larry found.

If you can’t camp, please at least go there and take them food (there is a full time kitchen) and warm weather supplies


Thanks George W. Bush. Your stumbling incompetence may have changed the world for the better.

Marilyn Davenport: A Racist Teabagger From OC California.


Speaking of nameless cowards, there is one alleged “coward” in southern California we should be grateful to for exposing Marilyn Davenport, a Southern California Tea Party activist and member of the central committee of the Orange County Republican Party, as a racist teabagger.  Indeed, a teabagger to which all the majority of teabaggers might someday aspire were they honest enough to come out publicly and admit their true feelings why they resent President and First Lady Michelle Obama occupying the White House.

Here is a shot at Davenport’s handiwork:

Her explanation?

Oh, come on! Everybody who knows me knows that I am not a racist. It was a joke. I have friends who are black. Besides, I only sent it to a few people–mostly people I didn’t think would be upset by it.

But Marilyn apparently does not see her being labeled a racist a joking matter:

After this story was published, she sent another email to fellow California conservative activists. It demanded to know the identity of “the coward” who supplied [The Weekly] with a copy of her offensive email.

Nice joke, Marilyn!!  Oh, and thank you Jesus for this “coward.”

“All them worthless Niggers that voted for that Nigger Obama.”

This is an actual voice mail received at Rep John Lewis‘ congressional office. The caller calls Obama and John Lewis “Nigger” a bunch of times. Is he a Tea “Partyer?” Sure sounds like one to me. But for the use of the “N”-word, the language and references are IDENTICAL to protest signs we see at KKK meetings Tea Party rallies.

Visit for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

Defenders of The Tea Party will argue that this caller does not represent them. The point is that the nature and origins (anti-Obama) of the Tea Party movement purposefully and UNAPOLOGETICALLY, appeals to and targets these kind of people, racists.

Classic example: Tea Party favorite for New York Governor, Carl Paladino refuses to apologize for racially charged comments. Why? Because HE KNOWS that racial rhetoric “appeals to the lowest instincts in man” and to “a mob mentality,” and the racist core of the Tea Party.

In other news today, Virginia’s Republican Governor Bob McDonnell has declared April to be “Confederate History Month,… McDonnell says that the Confederate history “should not be forgotten, but…remembered, [that its leaders] fought for their homes and communities and Commonwealth in a time very different than ours today.”

Everyone knows the subject of  “Confederate” means nothing more and nothing less than racism.  So why?

WHY would a politician deliberatly associate himself with racism? Answer, to appeal to racists voters.

And THIS is why The Tea Party cannot produce a platform much less a coherent reason for hating Obama because “you can’t say it out load,” unless hiding behind and phone.

Hypocrisy on Parade and the Sole Jewish Republican in Congress

In recent times, it has been suggested that the Republican party has become the party of white men. This has never been more true than it is today. Between Congress and the Senate, Republicans can claim exactly zero African Americans and one Jew; Eric Cantor, and he is a pathetic hypocrite.

To Wit:

To those still feeling defensive about the accusations of racism among Republicans, consider for a moment why there are ZERO elected Republican African Americans in our legislative branch. Its a hard fact to explain.

While we do see a few unelected token Republicans in the party, Michael Steele for instance, there is not much the party can do about the fact that the now 20% of Americans who self-identify as Republicans will simply NOT elect an African American.

Based on the evidence, of the two political parties in this country, one has become a small cluster of xenophobic, white supremacists?

Frankly, I don’t see how there is any hope for Republicans in 2010 elections

Rookie Republican Slips Up and Reveals Party Platform

Lynn Jenkins Racist RepublicanJenkins’ remark raises eyebrows

Created August 26, 2009 at 6:50pm
Updated August 27, 2009 at 12:22am

U.S. Rep. Lynn Jenkins offered encouragement to conservatives at a town hall forum that the Republican Party would embrace a “great white hope” capable of thwarting the political agenda endorsed by Democrats who control Congress and President Barack Obama.

Watch the video.

One commenter nailed it:

We knew that Grinnin’ Lynn was a brain dead Republican moron, but who knew she was dumb enough to leak their main party platform in public?

Republicans like to get all indignant when you accuse them of being racists, especially the racists ones.

Count on them invoking Lincoln first then a string of Uncle Toms like Michael Steele, Colin Powell, Lil’ Bobby Jindal, Condoleeza Rice, Alan Keyes and others.

…Ooops, correction. That’s it. There ya have it. All the remaining Black Republicans listed in half a line of 12pt Verdana. Did I miss anyone?

GOP: Racism = Patriotism?

There was a time not so long ago when racism in America was institutionalized. It was a winning political platform especially among Southern Democrats. The 1964 Civil Rights Act caused the party to split and the racist became Republicans (as Pres. Lyndon Johnson predicted).

The 1965 Voters Rights Act made it much easier for Blacks to register to vote, so the adopted new tactics to prevent Blacks to actually vote. The Republicans continue to employ such tactics today.

The only thing that has changed is that more moderate (educated) Republicans don’t pronounce their racism publicly but rarely take a stand against it.

From New GOP “Racist” Headache – The Daily Beast

Two minutes later, Piker posted again saying “Obama Bin Lauden [sic]  is the new terrorist… Muslim is on there side [sic]… need to take this country back from all of these mad coons… and illegals.

Eight minutes after that, at 2:02, Shay weighed in on Piker’s comments: “You tell em Eric! lol.”

Piker (Eric S.) is just an ignorant racist, but Audra Sigler Shaw is an ignorant racist endorsed by Bobby Jindal for President of the Young Republicans.

This pattern of racial remarks from grassroots Republican politicos highlights a real problem: As the party tacks right, it seems increasingly reluctant to challenge folks on its fringe for fear of offending the base—even, in this case, by failing to immediately rebuke racist supporters on a [Young Republicans] Facebook page. Let’s say that Shay’s “LOL” response was the online equivalent of nervous laughter, the kind of passive response to racist jokes that may have once been considered acceptable in pool halls and country clubs of the past. In the Internet era, it offers indelible evidence of acquiescing to something evil in our politics. There is a fear-based paralysis, a lack of moral clarity, which is in direct contradiction to their historic role as the Party of Lincoln.

It is the obligation of all Republicans to stand up against the racism so deeply rooted in their party, starting with Bobby Jindal.

But don’t hold your breath.  Spineless people prefer to run and hide.  Case in point: Both Audra Sigler Shay and Eric S Piker have disappeared from Facebook…just more racism shoved back into the shadows.

Limbaugh Accuses Obama of Forced Reparations

Limbaugh: Obama administration’s economic “objective” is “unemployment” and “more food stamp benefits … think forced reparations”

This is, plain and simple, straight up white supremacy speak. This is the kind of stuff that lands you on the Southern Poverty Law Center’s special map.

Visit for Breaking News, World News, and News about the Economy

If this is allowed to go unpunished, every American should be worried. I suppose we’ll have to make a choice between an America that allows hate speech, race baiting and the promotion of ethnic cleansing or an America STOMPS out pigs like Limbaugh and a Republican Party who bows before him.

Is this protected speech?

Defending the Indefensible

CNN reports that “Republican Party reaction is divided over the decision of a candidate for party chairman to distribute a CD that features the parody tune “Barack the Magic Negro,” with the majority of Chip Saltsman’s political rivals criticizing the move.”

Divided? I can understand that idiot Rush Limbaugh thinking this was a good idea. But honestly, there are others? Browsing around the blogs, I’ve found a lot of defense for Saltsman in the guise that Democrats want everything to be racist. Those poor Republicans feel like they just can’t win because the ‘libruls’ always play the race card and the media lets them win when they do.

Here’s a news flash for the Repugs who think this: You are racist. You apparently have no ability to discern what is humor or parody from what is worthy of a KKK barbecue.

My African-American friend emailed this little joke to me.

A stranger was seated next to a little black girl on the airplane when The stranger turned to her and said, “Let’s talk. I’ve heard that flights go quicker if you strike up a conversation with your fellow passenger.”

The little girl, who had just opened her coloring book, closed it slowly And said to the stranger, “What would you like to talk about?”

“Oh, I don’t know,” said the stranger. “Since you are a Negro, do you think that so-called President Elect Barack Obama is qualified for the job?” And he smiles.

“OK”, she said. ‘That could be an interesting topic. But let me ask you A question first. A horse, a cow, and a deer all eat the same stuff – grass -. Yet a deer excretes little pellets, while a cow turns out a flat patty, And a horse produces clumps of dried grass. Why do you suppose that is?”

The stranger, visibly surprised by the little girl’s intelligence, Thinks about it and says, “Hmmm, I have no idea.”

To which the little girl replies, “Do you really feel qualified to discuss President Barack Obama… when you don’t know sh*t?”

Post-Racist U.S.? Sadly, Not

One of our readers here commented that he was too young to remember the Black Power fist symbol as he was growing up in a post-racist generation. But as a CBS News story points out, racism isn’t dead in the U.S., it’s just been in remission.

CBS/AP) Cross burnings. Schoolchildren chanting “Assassinate Obama.” Black figures hung from nooses. Racial epithets scrawled on homes and cars.

Incidents around the country referring to President-elect Barack Obama are dampening the postelection glow of racial progress and harmony, highlighting the stubborn racism that remains in America.

There have been “hundreds” of incidents since the election, many more than usual, said Mark Potok, director of the Intelligence Project at the Southern Poverty Law Center, which monitors hate crimes. (snip)

Four North Carolina State University students admitted writing anti-Obama comments in a tunnel designated for free speech expression, including one that said: “Let’s shoot that (N-word) in the head.” Obama has received more threats than any other president-elect, authorities say.

Before the election while looking at the Google searches that brought readers to my own blog, I ran across some alarming search text from Wasilla Alaska that said ‘why Barack Obama should be shot in the head’. Reallizing that search text had brought someone to my blog left me literally shaking.

You can read more incidents in the CBS article. I gently suggest to our young reader that if he sees America as post-racist, perhaps he’s been wearing blinders. I wonder if in my own lifetime I will see our country reach a place where we really are blind to race, gender, sexual preference, age, or other categories that still garner prejudice today.
