Court, Imposed Race Quotas

Schumer AngryYeah, the comma in this post’s title is actually important. This isn’t about the courts imposing racial quotas; it’s about Chuck Schumer trying to impose race quotas on the Court. Chuck Schumer had the audacity and unmitigated gall to stand on the floor of the Senate and reject one of President Trump’s judicial nominees, Marvin Quattlebaum because and, if one is to lend Schumer the hand-out of credence, only because he’s White.

Not, of course, that Schumer’s racist narrative, childish actions, or Oppositional Defiance Disorder made any difference in the outcome. The Senate voted 69-28 – that vote included 19 Dem Yea’s – to confirm Marvin Quattlebaum as a US district judge for South Carolina.

No, this was just Schumer’s cynical ploy to paint his refusal to vote for any nominee put forth by America’s President, Donald Trump as an exercise in social justice, something that Schumer has an “interesting” track record with. After all, the only thing that Schumer and the Dems have is their narrative that President Trump is racist, sexist, and xenophobic…oh yeah, and nationalist.

The Highlights Of 2017

The Highlights Of 2017

2017 was a very interesting year, a true watershed in the history of the world, the West, and America. What makes it even odder to me that the one thing that sums up the highlights of 2017 actually took place in 2016, specifically on November 8th.

Yes! This video, though from 2016, sums up the foundation of what was 2017. It was, with the amazing and largely unexpected election of Donald Trump to the US Presidency, a year of America rebirth. Of course, like all births, it was accompanied by blood, sweat, and tears. In this case, the blood, sweat and bitter tears of Liberal and Progressives of all flavors as the weeped and gnashed their teeth over a birth that they unsurprisingly so wanted to abort. 😉

Yes, 2017 was the best of years…for we, the People; it was the worst of years for those others living within the borders of our once and future great nation.

A Dangerous Minority

That’s right; according to MSNBC’s Joy Reid, those Americans living in “rural” areas are a dangerous minority and a “core threat” to America’s democracy. She’s real concerned that “those sorts” will have too much say in the nation at the expense the interests and power of the urbanites.

Of course it’s blatantly obvious from her race, political affiliation, and employment that Reid doesn’t really mean “rural” when she says rural. No, “rural” is just a dog-whistle for White, Straight, Christian, Patriotic Americans who don’t live in major urban centers. She certainly wasn’t lambasting and bemoaning the non-urban Blacks in The South or the non-urban Hispanics in the Southwest and large swaths of California. No, it’s just a bit of code-switching since Reid can’t right up and out and say, “Fucking Crackas.”

And, of course, what Reid is really angry about and afraid of is that in her mind that supposed rural minority that is so dangerous are the 62,979,879 Americans who voted for Donald Trump. Yes, she both hates and fears the 46.1% of Americans – vs. the 48.2% that voted in vain for Hillary Clinton – who gave Trump a 306 to 232 Electoral College victory and the reins of our nation, at least insofar as any POTUS has the reins.

What’s truly funny and what showcases Reid’s stupidity alongside her racism is that Clinton only won in a very small number of geographically concentrated precincts, as the map above shows. To make that point clearer, if one removed the popular vote totals from any one of the big three Democrat strongholds – California, Massachusetts, and New York – Hillary would have also lost the popular vote.

And, to take that point even further, with the stark exception of Massachusetts, those dangerous rural folk took some big bites of those Democrat strongholds too. 😉 Hellfire! Trump won 45 of 62 counties in New York and 25 out of 102 in California. How deplorable!

Deplorables – A Dangerous Minority

And for your enjoyment and edification, here’s a sampling of beautiful examples of those ever so deplorable and dangerous rural minorities. They don’t seem all that scary and evil to me … though some sorts will disagree.
