Emergency Democrat Votes

Emergency Democrat Votes

Funny how in these times, whenever a Democrat loses and election to a Republican – especially if said Dem is a Black and the Republican a White – and the votes are close, there’s now always some issue and there’s always some number of extra Democrat ballots found by them after the fact. 😯  It seems an awful lot like they have a supply of Emergency Democrat Votes, doesn’t it?

And it’s these sorts who rant so stridently that President Trump, the Electoral College, and anything, everything, and anyone except themselves is a threat to America’s democracy and the integrity of our electoral process.

Words can be important, but both actions and the results that really matter. Hence, a POTUS – any POTUS – should be judged upon his record and the records, if any, that he sets. 😉

#BelieveAllWomen 1889

#BelieveAllWomen 1889

Yeah, if we’re going to #BelieveAllWomen, we need to rethink how we consider and teach certain unpleasant parts of American people.  After all, those lynchings and the two massacres – Rosewood, FL and Tulsa, OK – that resulted from a Black male raping or trying to rape a White woman have to be taught in that context instead of the sole context of racism.

And yes, those Black males did rape or try to rape those White women. To believe anything else is to spit in the face of every female rape survivor in the world…as any of the vocal sorts of #MeToo will be sure to tell you at great length and with even greater vitriol. Remember, if accusation isn’t enough, you’re just a rape enabler.

So, if we’re going to believe them now and act upon those beliefs, we have to believe them then, and approach the lynching of Black rapists as merely an inappropriately extra-judicial response to these heinous crimes.

Yeah, think about that.
