They’re Not Transformative

Posted in Politics on October 27th, 2015

That’s the thing; despite various claims over the years that creatures like Obama, Hillary, and Sanders are a new age in Politics and/or are somehow “Transformative,” they’re really just another set of tares poisoning the fertile fields of America. And the only which any of them are Transformative is that they, like those before them, want to transform America into a failed Socialist state.

A White woman, especially a fresh-faced, all-American looking beauty like this, wearing a “Good Genes” tee shirt is just inherently racist because it says that White genes are good genes and we can’t be saying good things about being White; that’s racist and, at the very least, a microaggression against Blacks.

Dixie Defends Herself

Posted in Humor, Politics, Society on October 25th, 2015

A proper Southerner will always stand up for- and protect our way of life. A Southern gentlemen will also always defend the rights and virtue of a Southern woman.

In the latter circumstance, however, such protection is often appreciated but unneeded. The woman of Dixie are, by and large, well capable of defending themselves in any theater of conflict.
