Democrats Win Not The End, But The Start Of A Better Group To Lobby…

Washington DC police officers crushed at Capitol Riot gets letter |  wusa9.com

This is a Patriot, not the ter­ror­ists who sought to kill him to destroy the wold’s old­est democracy.

It is anoth­er cel­e­bra­tion of the birth of Doctor Martin Luther King. As February approach­es we will also be cel­e­brat­ing Black Histor month.
Every year we go through this rou­tine of com­mem­o­rat­ing his birth, and cor­rect­ly so, and yes we cel­e­brate Black Histor Month.
Nevertheless, we run the risk of sim­ply pass­ing time, if we fail to rec­og­nize that each gen­er­a­tion must fight the fights that those who went before us fought.
Today, the sons and daugh­ters, grand­sons and grand­daugh­ters of those who fought like hell to keep our ances­tors in sub­juc­ta­tion, are fight­ing like hell to estab­lish that they are the right­ful heirs of this land that have been drenched with the blood of enslaved Africans who were forced to toild for hun­dreds of years with­out compensation.
On that basis, African-American women have stepped for­ward, not just to rep­re­sent, but to save this frag­ile democ­ra­cy from the rav­ages of those who claim to be patri­ots but are indeed trai­tors to America’s ideals.

Josh Hawley

This is Josh Hawley US Senator from Missouri who was the first to object to Biden’s win.

Through vot­er reg­is­tra­tion, get­ting peo­ple to the polls, black women like Stacy Abrams have changed the tide of his­to­ry, and repo­si­tioned America away from destruc­tive abyss of autocracy.
It start­ed in South Carolina where African-American women stepped up and made sure that America would have a can­di­date that could defeat tyranny.
Black peo­ple vot­ed in droves to make sure that Donald Trump does not turn America into a banana repub­lic. he attacks against black vot­ing rights will be intense in the future. it is up to every black American to ensure that their efforts to turn back the clock will not happen.
It will hap­pen at the state lev­els in states in which Republicans have con­trol of state hous­es. They will pass laws that makes it even more dif­fi­cult for peo­ple to vote. They will try to reduce and do away with ear­ly vot­ing, they will elim­i­nate drop=boxes on elec­tion dates, they will engage in purg­ing vot­ers names from vot­ers lists.
And they will do worse.
The Democrats will have the white House , the Senate, and the House, they must forth­with pass leg­is­la­tion to shore up the Voting Right Act that was unnec­es­sar­i­ly evis­cer­at­ed by the Republican Supreme court.

Ted Cruz a mod­ern day Joe McCarthy…

Doctor King did not die a cel­e­brat­ed man; his meth­ods put many peo­ple off. They thought his non-vio­lent meth­ods weren’t work­ing. However, even as Doctor King preached non-vio­lence, White mur­der­ers were mur­der­ing Black men and women across America; despite all this, the nation remained com­plete­ly disinterested.
They blew up four lit­tle girls at the 16th street Baptist Church in Burningham, Alabama, on a Sunday morn­ing. Ask your­selves, “who kills babies”?
Do you con­sid­er those who devised the idea of blow­ing up peo­ple in a church human beings?
How do you appeal to the bet­ter Angels of demons who blew up lit­tle girls in Sunday school?
If we move past the killings of the peri­od in which white ter­ror­ists mur­dered Medger Evers, Dr. King, and all of the stal­warts not a great deal has changed.

Here are the United States Senators who betrayed their oaths and object­ed to Joe Biden’s win In order to facil­i­tate Donald Trump’s cor­nu­copia of lies.

Blacks con­tin­ue to believe in turn­ing the oth­er cheek to the most stri­dent racists. We wel­come them into our most sacred places of wor­ship, pray with them and com­fort them, only to have them turn right around and mur­der us.
On February 6th, oper­at­ing on a lie, throngs of those same kinds of demons who mur­dered Dr. King and bombed lit­tle chil­dren, over­ran the nation’s cap­i­tal with their flags of hate. Their message?
Overturn the results of fair elec­tions, kill law­ful­ly elect­ed offi­cials, includ­ing the vice pres­i­dent, and install a fraud­u­lent and demon­ic socio­path­ic wannabe King.
We even believe that God sanc­tions the abom­i­na­tion of slav­ery because of course, there are vers­es in the Bible extolling the virtues of slaves required def­er­ence to their enslavers. One right-wing for­mer mil­i­tary leader told racial arson­ist Glen Beck, that in the South [where he is], (Junior and Bubba) are get­ting tired of what’s hap­pen­ing in their coun­try, that what we saw in the Capitol on January 6th, was Junior and Bubba stand­ing up. Yes this came from a for­mer General.
At a time when the nation is about to swear in a new pres­i­dent, at a time when the FBI is try­ing belat­ed­ly to vet mem­bers of the National Guard that are sup­posed to secure the inau­gu­ra­tion, that kind of arro­gant mind­set sums up where we are.
This coun­try con­tin­ues to be on edge because one group of peo­ple in the believe they have the right to deter­mine and dic­tate the rules of the game.

These are the 147 House Members who vot­ed against American Democracy

Let us stop pre­tend­ing that the peo­ple who invaved the halls of Congress are patri­ots.
Let us stop pre­tend­ing that Josh Hawley , Ted Cruz and the oth­ers who sup­port­ed this das­tard­ly act of insur­rec­tion against the United States Government are any­thing but trai­tors to America.
Any [per­son who par­tip­i­at­ed in any way, includ­ing to give aid and com­fort to those who engaged in the acts of ter­ror­ism on January 6th, are no less cul­pa­ble than those who broke the doors down, beat and killed a police offi­cer , defe­cat­ed in the halls of our democ­ra­cy in an effort to over­turn the ver­i­fi­able clean and fair elec­tion of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.
Anyone can claim to be a patri­ot, it is hard­ly what one says, it is what they do.
How long are we going to pre­tend that those peo­ple who broke down doors , shat­tered win­dows , killed a cop, and beat oth­ers in a venge­ful quest to com­mit even more mur­ders are patriots?
When will these destruc­tive ele­ments be seen for what they tru­ly are?
Those who sup­port an insur­rec­tion against the legit­i­mate gov­ern­ment of their own coun­try are not patri­ots, they are trai­tors and terrorists.
White nean­derthal insur­rec­tion­ists against the gov­ern­ment deserves no def­er­ence , nei­ther by law or moral­i­ty. They are regres­sive ele­ments of a time gone by that should nev­er be allowed to return.

This is what a patri­ot look like

The Trump move­ment must be seen for what it is a clear and unequovi­cal attempt to turn back the clock through vot­er sup­pres­sion, vot­er intim­i­da­tion, and final­ly through insurrection.
Make no mis­take about it, none of this was about eco­nom­ic anx­i­ety. The cor­po­rate media fed the nation that non­sense dur­ing the racist t‑party upris­ing under the pres­i­den­cy of Barack Obama, we knew that it had noth­ing to do with any of that. Obama took cau­tious steps to bring the econ­o­my back from the brink. Republicans did every­thing in their pow­er to sobatage his efforts in a scorched earth approach that led to slow­er than nec­es­sary econ­o­my recovery.
As soon as the demogog­ic Trump was elect­ed they signed on to his tax give­aways to the very rich in fur­ther­ance of the failed the­o­ry of trick­le down economics.
The fail­ures that con­tin­ue to set this great nation back is not of immi­grant com­mu­ni­ties but of peo­ple who refuse to be trans­formed to a pluras­tic soci­ety in which all peo­ple have a fair shot.
That is the America that John Kennedy and Ronald Reagan spoke about. That America is with­in reach and all of us should ensure that she gets there.
