John Lewis got a Political Rally; Herman Cain Will get a Funeral

The Swamp holds a political rally, er, ‘funeral’ for John Lewis. – Now, you can’t go to church with more than 10 of your fellow Americans, but those who infest the DC Swamp can fill a church, ignore social distancing, and hold a political rally for a dead corrupt congressman who in his youth was a genuine champion of civil rights.

Barack Hussein Obama His Own Self was there, preaching about the glories of mail-in ballots and the evils of having to have an ID when you go vote. San Fran Nan was there, half in the tank as always. Slick Willie was there, his visage increasingly that of a wraith from a horror film, which is the only way one would expect a long-time running buddy of Jeffrey Epstein to age. Hell, they even rolled out George W. Bush, who likely knew Mr. Lewis about as well as he knew me.

Because this funeral wasn’t a funeral at all: Like the “funerals” for John McCain and Aretha Franklin and George Floyd before it, this was just another chance to brainwash the public and take shots at the Bad Orange Man who isn’t part of their club. That’s all it was: a gaudy and disgusting spectacle that has become sadly typical of the Swamp in general and Democrats in particular.

See, they can all do this thing that you can’t because they’re your betters. Just like Dr. Fauci can go to a baseball game and yuck it up in the stands while he ignores his own dictates that have become such an oppressive part of your lives. They’re the elite; the segment of our society that gets to ignore all of the stuff they tell you you must do or be tossed in jail.

If you don’t believe me, just watch and learn. Herman Cain, a hero for conservatives everywhere and a truly great American, died yesterday. Let’s watch and see if he gets a nationally-televised funeral in a church filled with Swamplings. Let’s watch and see if he gets a send-off in a church filled with people, period.

What Cain has received already instead is derision from the corrupt news media. Pretty much every outlet knee-jerked to the narrative that “Cain, who refused to wear a mask, died after he was diagnosed with COVID-19 just 9 days after attending a rally for President Trump in Tulsa.” To the Associated Press, the New York Times, Politico, CNN, MSNBC and all of the TV networks, that is apparently the story of Herman Cain’s life in its entirety.

For those unaware, Herman Cain was born in 1945 in Atlanta, the son of a father who worked variously as a barber, a chauffeur and a janitor and a mother who worked as a maid. Hard working, great Americans. Cain himself followed his parents’ example to become a hard-working, great American in his own right.

After putting himself through college and receiving a degree in mathematics from Morehouse College, Cain served his country as a civilian systems analyst for the Department of the Navy. He then moved into the business world, where he rose to national prominence, ultimately becoming the CEO of Godfather’s Pizza and the Chairman of the National Restaurant Association.

He ran for the GOP presidential nomination in 2012, a nomination that ultimately went to the Swampling RINO Mitt Romney, with disastrous results. Cain was running a strong race until it was revealed he had had an extra-marital affair, something that would have been a badge of honor for any Democrat, but which gave the corrupt media an excuse to hound him out of the race.

There will be no nationally-televised funeral for Mr. Cain. His body will not lie in state at the nation’s capitol. He won’t have 4 or 5 separate memorial services over a span of 10 days, as did McCain and Floyd and Lewis. Al Sharpton won’t be invited to deliver an hour-long, hate-filled diatribe. The Clintons will not travel to his funeral from Chappaqua, nor the Bushes from their ranch in Texas. Obama His Own Self will not deliver a eulogy filled with messages about mail-in voting or voter ID.

Herman Cain won’t receive send-offs from those former presidents, but he did get this tribute from the current one:

Rest in Peace, Herman Cain. Rest in the knowledge that, because you are neither a Swampling nor, like George Floyd, a convenient false idol being used by Democrats to justify mass riots, your funeral will be an actual, dignified service, not a disgusting political rally officiated by the fading wraiths of the elite.

That is all.

Saturday News Roundup: Antifa Gone Wild, Teachers Unions Gone Bad, and Racism at the New York Times

Antifa gone wild. – The summer remains hot and out of control in Lori Lightweight’s Chicago. No fewer than 18 under-armed Chicago police were injured by Antifa/BLM rioters last night as they defended a statue of Christopher Columbus that the rioters had attempted to tear down in Grant Park.

Watch this clip:

Note that probably 80% of the rioters are the classic pasty-faced white Millennials who staff, organize and foment Antifa/BLM/Democrat Party-sponsored riots all over the country.

From a report at the Chicago Tribune:

At least 1,000 people swarmed the Christopher Columbus statue in Grant Park on Friday evening in an attempt to topple it after a march turned tense and chaotic when some people began throwing fireworks and cans at the police, who in turn struck members of the crowd with batons.

Following a rally in support of Black and Indigenous people, hundreds of protesters marched south on Columbus Drive shortly after 7 p.m. Then a person shouted that some Chicago police units, whom they had been trying to separate the crowd from by using bike-wielding citizen “marshals,” had left to protect the statue of the controversial historical figure.

Dozens of people in the crowd who were clad in all-black clothing rushed the nearby statue, surrounding the short stone wall that circled it. Some began throwing objects, such as cans and fireworks, at the officers. A few people tried to climb over the wall and were met with officers smacking their batons at them.

About 18 officers were injured, some of whom were treated at the scene and others at area hospitals, Chicago police spokesman Thomas Ahern said. About a dozen people were arrested and face pending charges ranging from battery to a police officer to mob action, Ahern said. He said the aerosol used by officers was pepper spray.

[End]

The key thing to remember here is that these 18 officers would have had a far better chance of avoiding injury had their terms of engagement not been so absurdly limited. Why would anyone want to be a police officer in a city where the corrupt Mayor expects them to go into harm’s way completely unable to properly defend themselves?

The people in these mobs are cowards, and cowards will only continue to grow bolder until someone punches them in the face. The rioting will continue so long as Democrat mayors like Lori Lightweight are in control. Sadly, the mass exodus of good officers from the nation’s police forces will continue as well.

John Lewis has passed. – Long-time Georgia Congressman John Lewis, who Nancy Pelosi has been illegally allowing to “vote by proxy” as he lay bed-ridden and semi-lucid in a hospital bed for the past several months, passed away last night at the age of 80.

Unlike the gangs of Marxist/fascist thugs we see the Democrats funding to destroy our cities today, Mr. Lewis was, in his younger days, a true hero of the real civil rights movement of the 1960s, and a close associate of Dr. Martin Luther King.

Can there be any question at all that the Democrats will now demean and tarnish Cong. Lewis’s memory by staging 10 days worth of politically-driven “funerals” around the country? Of course they will. That’s what the Democrats do. He deserves to pass with more dignity than that, but San Fran Nan and Chuck Schumer and Al Sharpton just cannot allow that to happen.

Rest in Peace, John Lewis, if they will let you.

Dear public school teachers: This is the kind of thing that gives you all a bad reputation in the minds of millions of Americans. – Following the lead of the main teacher’s union in Los Angeles, a North Carolina teachers union – the Durham Association of Educators (DAE) – announced on Friday that it will only allow its members to return to work this fall if congress enacts universal healthcare and gives welfare benefits to illegal aliens.

From a piece in the Washington Free Beacon:

A North Carolina teachers’ union is calling for the implementation of universal health care and welfare benefits for illegal immigrants in order to reopen schools in the fall.

Just days after the Durham Association of Educators (DAE) issued a statement railing against the school district’s reopening plan, Durham Public Schools voted unanimously to hold all classes virtually for at least the first nine weeks of the school year. Included in the DAE statement was a call to adopt a variety of far-left policy goals before holding in-person classes, including Medicare for All and “direct income support regardless of immigration status.”

“There are concrete policies that have permitted other countries to flatten the curve and return to public life: moratoriums on rent and mortgage, universal health care, direct income support regardless of immigration status,” the statement reads. “We must fight together, collectively, for changes that will permit our communities to thrive during this pandemic and beyond.”

[End]

Utterly absurd. The average six year-old child has better associative reasoning skills than that on display in this letter. This is Marxism, pure and simple.

Public school teachers are the least of the problems with the nation’s public schools, although they tend to get most of the blame because they are ones who most often interact with the parents. But teachers unions, on the other hand, are the very heart of the problem, not just with the school system but with our society at large.

These are nothing more than thuggish leftwing political machines that use their funds to support socialist/Marxist causes. A sane society that wished to be preserved intact would order them all to be disbanded.

Being an anti-white racist means never having to say you’re sorry at the New York Times. – New York Times staff writer Nikole Hannah-Jones admitted this week to white people as “barbaric devils” and “bloodsuckers.” Naturally, no one at the Times is demanding that Jones – the lead author of the paper’s utterly false and inherently racist “1619 Project” –  apologize.

From a piece at the Daily Caller:

Hannah-Jones wrote that “the white race is the biggest murderer, rapist, pillager, and thief of the modern world.” in a 1995 letter that was originally obtained by The Federalist. Hannah-Jones also compared Christopher Columbus to Adolf Hitler, and claimed the “white race used deceit and trickery, warfare and rape” to steal land.

Hannah-Jones is the lead author of the New York Times’ 1619 project, and has defended violence and looting that occurred during protests in the wake of George Floyd’s death.

“And so when we think about someone taking an act to take something from some big box name store, it is symbolic,” she said of the looting. “That one pair of shoes that you’ve stolen from Foot Locker is not going to change your life. But it is a symbolic taking.”

[End]

Yes, surely, nothing says “social justice” like a spanking new TV or pair of Nikes.

Holy crap.

That is all.
