America was founded on protests so Americans have an affinity for protests but there are good and bad protests. There are right and wrong protests. Because of the bad and wrong protests against American involvement in the Vietnam war millions were killed that should have lived. The killings are the fault of the American Left protestors who forced America to leave Indochina without defeating the totalitarian governments that came to power because there was no resistance to their power seeking.
One of the best set of circumstances that led to the American defeat and the rise of communist and totalitarian dictatorships is listed by Henry Kissinger in “Years of Upheaval”.
Some might try to diminish Kissinger’s and Nixon’s actions to win the war but they are clearly shown in Years of Upheaval to be the fault of a weakened bargaining position created by the massive protests caused inside America by the enemies of America. People like Jane Fonda ….developing .
Wearing her red cowgirl kiddie halloween costume complete with one of her child-like cowgirl hats, the bizarre Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-FL) reacted to President Donald Trump’s tweet referring to former White House staffer Omarosa Manigault Newman as a “dog,” asking “how dare” the president call a “woman of color” that.
Trump was correct to refer to Omarosa that way. He tweeted: When you give a crazed, crying lowlife a break, and give her a job at the White House, I guess it just didn’t work out. Good work by General Kelly for quickly firing that dog!
Maybe he should have called her a black dog to be sure he got Omarosa’s skin color correct.
OTOH, both Omerosa and Wilson can be referred to but not in any accurate way as befitting women of color.
It’s kinda nice that people are not the same. Not only is each person different but groups are different than other groups. Black NFL players are different than White NFL players and black people have race issues even when they are black and 100% in charge like in Southern Africa. Nelsen Mandela passed away while fighting to end racism but Southern Africa is still seen by the black people there as having too many white people. It’s sad.
Colin Kaepernick will probably never play in the NFL again because of the trouble he caused. Malcolm Jenkins in still playing but because of his leadership over race he’s no longer a fan favorite and he’s annoyed so many fans that the NFL stands to lose millions more that they didn’t have to lose.
At the end of the day, ….at the end of the protests, ….yes, they’ll end, . . . because they are a very bad idea, but race won’t go away and some black people will be offended and blame everybody but themselves for their miserable lives.
NOTE: black people who have happy lives aren’t protesting and they don’t want to be rockin’ the boat. Jenkins is, unfortunately, for lots of reasons, still going to be black for the rest of his life. If he wants to fight for equal treatment on black people by white people, …. maybe the idea is impossible because there’s always going to be black and white people, and many in betweens and people go to their own first. And Jenkins is going to be fighting the rest of his life. . .
