Russell Walker is a Republican candidate running for a seat in the North Carolina General Assembly. Walker seemed a fairly viable candidate up until last week, when some alarming statements were discovered on a website thought to belong to him.
The now-controversial North Carolina politician made national headlines after someone unearthed blog posts written by him that explicitly argue in favor of white supremacy. The cherry on top? Walker insists God is supportive of it:
"What is wrong with being a white supremacist? God is a racist and a white supremacist. Someone or group has to be supreme and that group is the whites of the world ... someone or something has to be inferior ... In all history in sub-Saharan Africa, no two-story building or a waterproof boat was ever made."
Finding this type of head-scratching hate on the internet is not exactly newsworthy. After all, it's the internet. But coming from an established politician? That's certainly concerning.
What Was God Thinking When He Created Russell Walker?
Even as kooks go, Russell Walker is a rare breed a conspiracy-theory-spewing 75-year-old who has proudly penned multiple 'essays' on his website laying out religious justifications for white supremacy and other abhorrent views.
The website christdescendedfromjoseph.com features a strange vitriolic blend of racist headlines and political statements. Among them are assertions that "God made the races and he is the greatest racist ever"; that "The Jews are not Semitic they are Satanic as they all descend from Satan" and that Martin Luther King Jr. "wanted to destroy the Caucasian race through mixing and integration. He was an agent of Satan."
Although new to the national stage, Walker previously made local headlines when he sued to keep the confederate flag up in a state courtroom. He lost. Here's Walker on camera espousing his views on the matter and explaining that "God is the greatest racist on the face of the earth:"
GOP Pulls Support
After the revelations came to light, the North Carolina Republican Party quickly withdrew its support for Walker. GOP chairman Robin Hayes explained they would rather "spend their time and resources supporting Republican candidates that better reflect the values of our party."
But here's the kicker: Walker, who has refused to withdraw his candidacy and cannot be forced out, will face Democrat incumbent and African American minister Garland Pierce in November. You really couldn't write a better script than this.
White Supremacy: God's Will?
Within his many rantings, Walker uses the same basic logic to claim that white supremacy is both natural and just. The thinking goes: since God created the world and all the people in it the fact that Caucasians have dominated other races is simply an extension of God's will. If God wanted perfect equality, why wouldn't He just make everyone equal?
How's that for some impressive next-level victim blaming. It appears that in his hastiness to justify inequality with biblical logic, Walker has overlooked one of the most important principles upon which America was founded: that all men are created equal.
Unfortunately, thanks to people like Russell Walker, when this played out in the real world humanity's dark side was exposed. Does the fact that human societies chose to subjugate one another mean that's what God willed to happen? Doubtful.
A more likely scenario: the Russell Walkers of the world scoured the Bible to find passages justifying their evil behavior, then claimed they were acting in accordance with God's wishes.
About some with all this political crap. What happens with all the good things! Oh, no ! Can't write stories over that while trump is in office.
That's what they do. They just ignore all the good things in this world that deserve our attention like when a flower girl steals the show at a wedding or a minister starts a weed church. THOSE are the important things. I really don't need to know about babies being thrown in kennels or my medicare being stripped. Don't waste my time with that crap thank you very much
Babies aren't thrown in kennels. I just love the hyperbole.
OK. Change "babies" to "children" then his statement is correct. Close enough, I say!
Good justifies itself. Evil must be confronted.
Thank GOD the Insidious LEFT is confronted Daily by POTUS, an it DRIVES THEM INSANE, Probably because 80% of the liberals Have no higher Power Or GOD other than Themselves,. if we pray REAL hard GOD may show his will n allow President TRUMP a 3rd SCOTUS PICK. Amen
Is that like Jesus "praying real hard" not to have to die--so hard that he sweat blood?
I never sweat blood. As far as our (maybe Not yours) SAVIOR he knew What was to happen before the miracle birth .He HAD to Die because he was the only one who was righteous an sin free. With the punishment for SIN Being death JESUS was the ONE who could Pay for the SINS of man .An NOW Man can come back into the grace of GOD In JESUS Through FAITH in our savior.
Isn't that GLORIOUS? AMEN
So much Evil in the GOP these days. Its like the DEVIL himself is running the party. So much religious caca being pushed by conservative so called christians that have little in common with Jesus and his teachings. It seems like hate is the norm and lack of compassion the party line.
Yep. No evil in the DNC. Iron pot calling a copper kettle black.
So Paul I see by your comment you don't consider Yourself a Christian do you? Would Love to KNOW your definition of Compassion , Hate, an other things you don't like about Republicans. If Compassion is More welfare an less work Or OPEN Borders to the point it changes the make up of America Then NO Republicans Don't have that in them . Republicans would rather have folks work for a living an get self respect from it. An as far as Borders GOD was a firm believer in a lands Security.
What really is race? It is part of your DNA, of your ancestral memory. It is just an indication or protection for your health. If you are born in Africa where the sun is extremely hot your skin is black because of pigment in your skin, will protect you from skin cancer, melanoma, by nature. You live in Indonesia or Thailand, India or other countries where the sun is less hot your skin will be brown, in Italy or Poland they are less brown but tan easily/more brown. The Skandanavian countries, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Iceland etc. Or Russia, You are white/Caucasian etc. because the sun is not very strong so people there do not need to protect their bodies from the sun, but from the cold! But under that skin we are all the same, maybe with some diseases we are prone to, according again to climate and ancestral differences. This has been going on for millions of years. There have been many races on planet earth that have died out! Every thing runs in cycles so what is the big deal. Wake up n look at things logically. Every thing is energy/vibration, so every thing, including the Source. We are part of Source, we are energy! Some vibrate fast, some slow if you vibrate so slow you become a straight line, dead! Or some things so fast you turn to stone. Petrified wood for example. It is just a question of degrees! Just learn a little quantum physics, putting it into words makes it easier to understand! Mr. Russel Walker is an ignoramus and neo-nazi. Like I call the Republican party, the party of the Ignorant, Stupid and Greedy, or any combination there of. Men was created in God's image, but since he was not a physical God, but his Spiritual Image! But for some Evagelicals and others with a pea-brain that is hard to understand specially when you take the bible literally! Hello America, wake up! ??????
The concept of race is no longer considered by biologists. Humans have very similar genes - much moreso than nearly any other animal or plant, Some people from some places have higher or lower incidence of genes which modify appearance, protect from disease, or cause disease. All humans have the same blood types and tissue types, such that if you need a blood transfusion or an organ transplant, the blood and tissue types are compared, not the ancestry of the doner/recipient. Genes that lead to one disease may protect for another - for instance, sickle cell genes protect one from malaria.
This isn't a matter for politics or religious beliefs. That is the fact.
I agreed with your post until you went off into pseudo science, energy, vibration, and pseudo-quantum physics, and what it means to be created in a "spiritual image".
pseudo science suks... pseudo-quantum physics suks donkey ballz
"Mr. Russel Walker is an ignoramus and neo-nazi." What is the difference between a neo-nazi and a nazi? Is one somehow better than the other? Should we feel relieved that Mr. Walker is a neo-nazi rather than a full-blown, let's invade Poland, nazi? Walker is just a nazi. There is nothing redemptive -- or neo -- about him.
Neo-nazi is a nazi who believes in a Nazi one world government. It is these people and others who consider themselves neo- liberal, neo-conservative, etc. They are for a one world government and the roots of it come from the Nazis.
Of course I expected everything I read from a Left Wing liberal .I think i'll believe the witness's that were around during the 1500 years it Took to finish the Holy Scriptures. As far as Race goes we r NOT ALL the same or have been CHANGED by the sun. There Are Obvious Physical features besides color that Are noticeable to an Honest open minded person. One FACT that they hide from people is the Proven fact that People of European decent have 2-5% Neanderthal In their DNA. But Blacks of Africa south of the Sahara desert DO NOT HAVE ANY. means the Two Races Mated with Different set of Sub Humans an developed at a different rate. you talk of Hate an Neo Nazi's its Childish, Whites have the same rights as any other race on earth . You DONT Attack BLACKS who are PROUD to be BLACK or have Pride in their Heritage , And You Should Not attack Whites who are proud of their Heritage. Settling an Creating America for Starters.
Amen, finally someone I find on line that has just plain common sense and looks at how the world is. I wish everyone would see we are all the same. We have the same inner organs, we bleed when injured, we feel when we love or get hurt or lose someone or even when we see tragedy to others. I can only pray that one day we will realize life is a gift given and taken away one day and we are here to learn something and love and respect everyone no matter what their color. God loves everyone and we should love and respect as well.
Thank you, Willie34. Maybe our educational system needs to start teaching quantum physics earlier on in school. Mr. Walker is obviously vibrating and the lowest frequency with his convoluted garbage. Indeed we are ALL ONE SOURCE. Why is that so difficult for humans to understand? Or maybe they do, but their egos and material things they value on earth blind them to the truth?
Willie34, you had me agreeing with you upto the point you started your anti-republican rant. At that point you compared yourself with Walker. The religious language you use may be diffrent in meaning but like you said, "But under that skin we are all the same", than why bash any political party or person.
Why is it as soon as a person has an audience they grab a wooden box and start their political rhetoric?
What do you find so offensive concerning our current government? Just being curious.
Those are just likely my own personal 10 reasons why I am disgusted by it. Keep in mind I only ask each pres to do one thing I think of as good for the people of the world to keep my mouth shut. With Obama it was his repealing the ban on stem cell research which he did pretty quickly once he was in office.
Trump has yet to do anything I consider as potentially so impactful in a positive light for the world. And done many things are think are potentially lasting in the negative impact. Among others being insulting and dismissive of world leaders that should be treated with respect as allies, while praising and endorsing tyrants.
I agree with most of what you said. Especially liked number 1. Ha! Roy Moore's "flock" were duped by this pseudo preacher. Our President needs to respect our allies. Not doing so weakens our counties place in world politics. Cozying up to Putin was a big mistake. The immigration problem has yet to be resolved by our President who seems to change his tune every time he opens his mouth. I've already commented about my belief in the need to separate church and state. States should govern their own destiny, not the government. Can't totally agree with no.7 though. Not all bikers are gang members. Most guys my age who ride a Harely with their"club members" are law abiding citizens and hero's like the Viet Nam vets club. How you feel about the war is a subject for another blog. Thanks for you insightful comments.
Gary, I agree with you completely. And I too was an independent biker, until my sixteenth spill almost killed me nearly thirty years ago. Now I pedal around town on a bicycle. My father was also an independent biker for far more years than me, and claimed to have never had a spill. He was a U.S.Marine Corps. veteran of both the Korean and Vietnam wars. A sniper scout in Recon. He rode Harleys and I rode American made Hondas, only because I wasn't nearly as mechanically inclined.
Hey Carl, Good to stay in touch with you. I also spent 6 years in the Corps. Best and most challenging experience of my life. Now I'm a pacifist and consider myself spiritual but do not follow any traditional, organized religion. I don't believe any person can feed me their beliefs and expect me to blindly follow them. Not gonna happen! My first ride was a Triumph 650 cc and later a Honda 750 and then a 900 cc kawi. which was an awesome ride until Suzuki came out with the 1100cc super bike. A good friend of mine who died some years ago was a Harley mechanic and I eventually bought a used shovelhead. Had it rebuilt by a local mechanic who was, believe it or not, a former Hell's Angel. He put a new engine and trans. in my bike and it was a rocket. The sound was unlike anything I had ever heard riding a crotch rocket. Real comfortable ride especially with a lady behind me. I can't even ride a bicycle anymore as I have a nerve disorder that has screwed up my balance. The dubious joys of aging!? I'll be marrying our oldest daughter later this month. Get to try out my ministerial wings. Hope it's a smooth flight. Later my friend. Gary
I'll return but for now I must leave there's been a death in the family.
About those biker gang members. I had a friend who was Los Angeles chapter Vice President of the Hell's Angels when he joined N.A. in 1972. He stayed clean for going on forty years, until he died. During some of those years he worked as a federal parole officer, but wore his colors for the rest of his life. Also, for many years I've had a female biker friend who rides a Harley, and is a very successful attorney. Gang members or not there are a lot of good people who are bikers. Never judge a book by its cover.
I belong to what may be the oldest still functioning MC in the world. Bikers are mostly like everyone else, with the exception of the fact that they belong to the club and look out for the club and its members. It is something like a cross between a fraternity and a tribe. They usually love to do good to all people, unless those people threaten or do wrong to their family.
All Lies an Untruths .
1 Men talking its called LOCKER ROOM HUMOR
2 They had a PERMIT to hold a peace full Rally but ANTIFA who did Not have the permit Illegal Started protesting
3 You can already run on a Church Platform
4The President has a Right to Free Speech an Religion an can Fill posts With WHO EVER HE Wants or needs .,R u Kidding?
5 ALL ROY MOORES ACUSERS Were FOUND an ADMITTED to Lies about Him AFTER the ELECTION. an he STILL only lost by 1.8%.It'll be fixed in 2020.
6 this makes No sense.
7The BIKERS you COMPARE to SAVAGE ANIMALS who RAPE an TORTURE KIDS MS-!3 ,Bikers are Military Veterans/ Police/TEACHERS/ Most MARRIED with KIDS You should Educate yourself T'Keran
8If your talking about the Land for rock Mining he opened up. That's for ALL AMERICANS to go Stake a CLAIM an GET 20 acers to Live an work on " FREE" Idiot I have My 20 acer Claim.
9 Yes he has Created SMALLER GOVERNMENT BUT STATES STILL must Follow Federal LAWS as to Immigration /Constitution SAYS it is The PRESIDENTS "RESPONSABILITY" to SET Immigration laws n Rules
10 Crossing the Border without permission is Illegal an a CRIME. Its is His Job to KNOW who is entering the Country With CHILDREN Some NOT their OWN for the Slave trade in sanctuary cities n else were. OBAMA Did the same thing in 2013 with 50,000 kids Most of the CAGE PICS were From THEN.. SOME of those Illegal alien parents if they r parents Should be CHARGED with CHILD ABUSE /Reckless ENDANGERMENT For Dragging kids across the Desert with ONLY a GALLON of WATER If An American did that just for the WEEKEND he would LOSE his KIDS n BE in JAIL.. RIGHT?? Dam RIGHT so they should not be Different
PEACE WITH N.KOREA that is Great for the WORLD. Having a HARDLINE Meeting with our Allies to Get them to PAY MORE ( AND THEY AGREED to IT) is going to Make all STRONGER. Perhaps you should Take your own advice an treat the OFFICE with The RESPECT it DESERVES in the WORLD. World Leaders Seem to like TRUMP because THEY KNOW exactly were he Stands. With AMERICA
GOD GIVES us LEADERS an PRESIDENT TRUMP WILL be there until 2024 AMEN GLORY BE
Thank you for identifying yourself as a waste of life that is unfit to share this world with civil and social minded people.
You are certainly not worth taking further time to respond to. May the darkness consume your soul and keep it forever in the void.
There is NOTHING CIVIL about you or the Close minded LEFT,, Ive EXPLAINED it all to YOU an Now You KNOW
WE Will only put up with So much. Of the LEFTS WHINING an Crying. The WORLD WILL come to ORDER. AMEN
This is all a huge load! We are ALL ONE RACE.......HUMAN! The slight differences in the color of our skin, the way our eyes look or even whether we are short or tall in meaningless nonsense. Different race means different gene string...if that were true we would never be able to interbreed true! We evolved differently to cope with different environmental hazards. To say your Christian God is white is the epitome of stupidity! God is supposed to be spiritual, not embodied! Blessed Be.
That is the watered Down VERSION We were All humans but we Did NOT MATE with the same Sub-humans Blacks South of the Sahara Boundary Mated with different humanoids than the ones in North Africa Did also European Whites have 2-5% Neanderthol DNA. BLACKS DO NOT. There are ALSO STUDIES from SCIENCE that have Proven on Avrage Asians have IQ's avg. of 115 , Whites Avg. is 100, Blacks Avg. is 85 this is SCIENCE.
You will say Code words Like racist or Nazi, But you Cant just Dismiss Science an Studies you DONT LIKE.
The Moral is We are NOT ALL the SAME n Evidence SHOWS this to open minded Folks Jesus was Embodied an Many say GOD in the FLESH
Your eyes must certainly be brown as you are so full of s**t! There are NO subspecies of human, unless it is the ignorant tiny little minds like your! Sub Sahara, Sub Continent, Sub Strata....... those are REAL things. Wake up basta! The only thing that makes us different is the way we were brought up, the way we were taught, and the opportunities that we have. You are pining for a shrinking cause in this country and I am glad to see the "good ole days" of Male, White supremacy die! And, to make matters worse, you seem to think you are a Christian?!? You sound like another stupid evangelistic whore....willing to sell you soul to whoever will protect your perceived lifestyle. Nothing you say is proven, except by accepted nazi propaganda! May your God have mercy and enlighten you to truth!
keep heart Carrie. Those who fight for freedom beat back the nazi before and we shall do so again if we must. Pseudo science like they babble is as meaningless as a man yelling in outer space.
So you think we just CAME from APE n Gorillas?
So tell me WHY are there STILL APE n GORRILLAS that DIDNT Magically Change.
No SUB HUMANS? TYPE in the SEARCH BOX SUB HUMAMS an you will Find a LIST, What do you think Neanderthal Was? Or CROMAGNAM?? Its FACT ,Blacks Mated with what was around They have revealed it was a Large Ape likE creature BUT it walked upright. An whites Branched off with Neanderthals. Do your own Research
So you think I'm not a Christian BECAUSE YOU don't LIKE the SCIENCE FACTS? Or you DONT WANT to HEAR the TRUTH
the term is proto human not sub human. and actually every single population sample from every region of the world has shown bits of neanderthal. what your referring to Id guess is EEMH aka european early modern humans which used to be called cro magnon.
And its pretty well accepted that man of these various proto humans migrated, interbred so on until we reached our current form and pretty much dominated the world.
The simple fact is though we are all close enough to each other to have viable non sterile off spring which is as obvious as you can get that we are all part of the same human family.
The Basic Races of Humanity ~ Caucasoid ~ Mongoloid ~ Negroid ~ Australoid As of Present Day. These Races ALL originated in Different Parts of the World, a Simple explanation is Caucasoid Originated in Europe Mongoloids Came from Asian Area Negroid originated in Africa Australoid originated in south East Asia n south pacific All of these Mated with Different Sub/Proto Humans an have Distinctive Differences from each other.Differant Stamina, Facial features n ,Tolerances to Heat an Sun As Far as Neanderthal in Everyone I'll have to look even Deeper ,but How can that be with the Sahara Desert as a Natural Barrier in Africa? Doesn't make sense As Far as pretty ACCEPTED statement I don't buy because I'm after the Facts that are True but Have been SILENCED by mainstream scientists So NOT to cause trouble in Society if the TRUTH GOT out about the Races. Also The SUN didn't make us white or black or Asian , We are Different. Otherwise by now we would be all one color an If we came from Apes Why r there Still APES This could be debated to the end of times.
You are correct here, in my view, T'Keren. One of the seven proofs of God as Creator is that each kind only reproduces after its own kind. There can be varieties of that kind, but they cannot reproduce with another kind, and then have offspring that can reproduce. The fact that pygmies and Vikings are capable of producing fertile offspring testifies that they are from the same kind. This is one point I use to teach bible-thumpers that Nephilim are not descendants of cross-breeds between angels and human. That would defy the kind after kind law of God and nature.
We can breed dogs n cats in a test tube they r not alike just not attracted to each other physically We r not all the same race
Dogs and cats cannot be bred in test tubes. Dog sperm will not fertilize a cat ovum or vice-versa.
Look, like it or not, God made assholes too. The problem is, he made too many of them. All assholes have one thing in common....they crave attention. Let's not give them any. Maybe if we, (yes I said WE), stop making them famous they will simply become irrelevant and then we can move on to more important things like what color to paint the kitchen.
Brien, how many people do you think read this blog? I don't think it's nearly enough to make anyone famous.
White Supremacy: God’s Will?
Within his many rantings, Walker uses the same basic logic to claim that white supremacy is both natural and just. The thinking goes: since God created the world – and all the people in it – the fact that Caucasians have dominated other races is simply an extension of God’s will. If God wanted perfect equality, why wouldn’t He just make everyone equal?
How’s that for some impressive next-level victim blaming. It appears that in his hastiness to justify inequality with biblical logic, Walker has overlooked one of the most important principles upon which America was founded: that all men are created equal.
I understand that people think that the bible says all men are created equal. But there is no scripture written in the bible that says all men are created equal. It was written by the forefathers of this country in the United States Declaration of Independence and not in the bible. I must say that I do not believe what Russell Walker believes.
The people of America believe that it is biblical and because of that it has created the rift that we have in this country. We need to be united as one America under God. We have been divided by this one non biblical phrase. It makes me wonder why our founders used it. They had to know it would cause all kind of problems. They weren't stupid. It makes one wonder doesn't it.
We are all God's children and loved by Him, but each and everyone of us are different. We are one in Him, not man. BYITNOJ
Our fotefathers right not have been as smart as you think they were. It doesn't necessarily take a whole lot of intelligence to win a war and start a country. And some of them might have been prejudiced too, by today's standards. At least that fool is seventy five years old and we we won't have to hear him for more than a couple of decades. And there's not a chance of anyone much older than that becoming our president. Considering his recent statements he probably will be laughed out of politics. He reminds me a lot of Archie Bunker.
George, the Repulican party has changed in the last 60 yrs or so. Specially since Pres. Reagon came in. Have watched the Supreme court changing also, more to the right. The more to the right the more Fascistic/ Nazi/Barbaric. The NRA is also a neo/Nazi organization. Under the guise of the 2nd amendment! They want to start a race war, that is, they want everybody to have a gun. The Nazis also slowly appointed their own judges. By militairizing the police they hope the next step will be making them into a new SS Nazi unit. And pres. Trump, the big Trumpeter has the right DNA. He has inherited the ancestral DNA of his germanic ancesters, autocratic, dictatorial, despotic, Tyrannical, draconian, oppressive, repressive, all fascistic n Nazi/neo-nazi traits! Thinking that debasing women makes him a real man. And separating the children from their parents is what the Nazis did also. Since they were not useful so the gas chambers first. Some men were used in forced labor camps. Women n the infirm n elderly to the gas chambers also. You probably were not Even old enough to have learned this history. Well I am well over 80 and was in WWII and my my memory is very good. I am a caucasion non Jewish female with a good memory! I would advise every body that does not know anything about the Nazis to watch or read about their history. All American men n women that died during WWII would be turning around in their graves watching the big Trumpeter now. Those that do not learn from their past, are bound to repeat it!!!
Yes unfortunately it can, and will if we don't do something about it. It's not what we talk about doing, it's not talking about what you want to to do, how your going to do it, or why your going to do that matters. What matter is what you do.
Therefore I suggest you tell the Democrat Party to dial down the confrontational dialogue before a civil war breaks out, like the first civil war where brothers are fighting brother just as before.
There's no reason to have people bothered, harassed, intimidated, bullied, and, and, and. Take your pick of adjectives. Is that what you want? If not all you have to do is call the local party and file a complaint; that's what I've done as a registered Democrat..
I'm not sure if one or two will make a difference but if a bunch complain it will make a big impact, big enough to perhaps make a difference. Then, mabe just then, we can start working together for the betterment of both parties and more importantly "We The People!"
George, it's the Republican Party who brought us to this level of discourse. The Republicans spent Obama's entire administration attacking him as a socialist pacifist, while we was expanding America's military presence around the world. They said he would bankrupt the country. They said his healthcare plan would bankrupt the government. They said he would bankrupt social security. They brought fear-mongering to an art. And now, as you parrot in your post here, they speak of civil war. Nobody in the leadership of the Democrats is talking Civil War, so if you want to complain about confrontational dialogue, I suggest you turn that back to the Republican Party leaders, and Fox News.
This guy, Walker is definitely a whako, bigoted, pea brain. We are all the same under the skin. We vary in body type, intelligence and ethnicity. Why people like this guy continue to exist is beyond me. He needs to be silenced at best or ignored at least. The problem is ill advised unaware people. Don't believe a word he says.
So You Believe He doesn't Have a Right to free speech an Should be SILENCED ?? So Any THOUGHT others Don't agree with Should not be Aloud , Even his extreme Views are Protected, And If you DUG DEEP into the Hidden unspoken Science World were Scientists have BEEN Silenced for their Discoveries Because it would Cause Havoc an Panic in the Population. He is quoting some of those Discoveries an LOOK how this BLOG reacts , an NO GOD is not a White Supremisist .
FACT is WE are NOT all just the SAME Some Groups are Smarter some are more Physically Gifted Look at SPORTS.
All that JUST THE SAME an EQUAL is LIBERAL HEAD in the SAND CRAP
Why is it then the left are the ones making all the accusations and name calling. Why is it nobody on the left can see that Obama is the one that started this racial split within our country, denounced the police force, and stripped our military of much needed funds. Why can't the left acknowledge the fact that the some of the top people in the DOJ and FBI corrupted the government in favor of the person they thought was going to win. They didn't want to do anything that would jeopardize their position by actually investigating Hillary if she won.
As I asked previously, you cant' find one thing Trump has done to better the nation that deserves at least a bit of praise. I voted for Obama twice and half way through his second term I realized that I had made a terrible mistake. He made America look weak through out the world by drawing lines in the sand and not backing his words -- the same words that represents the USA. I was a lifetime Democrat until Obama's second term.
I didn't vote for Trump because I felt he was not of presidential material. But, he is the president and I still feel that his actions and many times his tweets are right off the wall. Yet I can see a lot of good that he has done and is trying to do if the democrats and the media would cut him some slack and support some of the programs he's trying to implement.
I watch both liberal and conservative TV stations and find the liberals bash everything Trump does, wears, says, how he acts, and just because he doesn't fit what the democrats feel he should be their revolting. My main thought is this a plot to overthrow Trump based on the fact that he's draining the swamp meaning those individuals in high places that are afraid of losing their power and at worst winding up in prison are passing down the message to revolt and interfere into everything Trump or his supporters do just to protect their butts?
How would you and your neighbors feel if a bunch of individuals confronted you verbally on your doorstep or if a coward placed a burned decapitated carcass on your doorstep for your wife or child to find, or how about running around with their faces covered? Why are they afraid to show their faces are they ashamed and just think their having fun by smashing windows and causing vandalism. Is that what you want to be associated with; to be a part of? I mean really. Way to go democrats and you claim Trump is evil--look in the mirror and see Lucifer staring back with a large grin on his/your face because he knows he has captured another soul..
George, are you seriously saying that President Obama started the racial split within our country? Really, there wasn't one before he became President? Well, then, a lot of time was wasted on segregation and riots and lynching and the Civil War and school busing and slavery and all other race-related issues before he came into office, don't you think, since none of that, according to you, was any kind of racial split in this country and we were all just waiting for Obama to come along to give us one? And he didn't do anything to heal this racial split, by becoming the first black President here and trying his damnedest to fix this problem here as much as possible? Really? What more could he or anyone (including you) have done to fix this problem? Has Trumpelstiltskin done anything to repair the racial split in this country, by separating children from their families at the border or trying to ban Muslims from coming into this country (just because 1% of 1% or less of them might, possibly, be terrorists or radicals), but 1% of 1% or less of Americans' being terrorists or radicals don't get all Americans evicted or barred from this country, and ruining our relations with other countries? Conservatives (more socially respectable Nazis) such as yourself just are totally self-contradictory and operate on a double standard, in which people who are trying to bring the country together and heal racial splits are "really the ones who are causing the racial split" and those who are actually causing and maintaining the racial split are "really the ones who are trying to heal it" and you just see everything ass-backward from the way that it actually is!
He has The BLACK UNEMPLOYMENT RATE DOW to the LOWEST it has Ever BEEN. Blacks are Leaving the Victim Group n Becoming Proud Americans an will Vote for him This go around in 2020 COUNT on it.. It was REPUBLICANS in the 60's that Beat The DEMOCRAT Filibuster to Stop the Civil Rights Bill , Democrats Said that REPUBLICANS gave too much away
Democrats Use Kids /the border /Blacks /Women, an Everything is a CRISIS or People are Going to die if we PASS TAX CUTS. That was ridiculous when Pelosi said that. People are tired of the Constant VOTE Grubbing FEAR MONGERS On the left Just Live your life an if Your Neighbor Doesn't LIKE it PUT UP a FENCE, But DONT Force your lives on OTHERS. to make yourself FEEL Good. about yourselves, Just some words to the GODLESS LEFT. AMEN
George, your entire post reveals your incredible privilege and your near complete ignorance of your own racism.
The "racial split within our country" has existed since before the country. What changed was having a black man in the White House, saying the same things the American Black community has been saying for decades, while we the white majority ignored their experience. Every study of the American justice system shows that Black people are incarcerated more often for the same crimes that white people are given a warning and released. Studies of our school systems show that Black and Middle Eastern students are punished and told they're going to grow up a criminal, while the white students who do the same things are told to settle down and grow up.
Obama never -- not one single time -- denounced the police. He recognized that a large part of the population doesn't experience the police as their protectors, but as their abusers. Again, the only thing that changed was having a Black man in the White House. The problem hasn't changed; only the discussion. He very publicly supported the police, championing their hard work, and said we needed to do more to prevent police violence, a problem our free nation should be without.
Obama, like Clinton, never, not once, decreased military spending. First, the President doesn't control the federal budget; Congress does. Second, under both administrations, federal spending on military and border control increased.
Hillary was investigated by the DOJ multiple times. According to public records, she was the most investigated member of our government ever. She also spent more time testifying in front of Congressional committees than any other individual in the history of our nation. And every time -- every single investigation -- she was proven to have done nothing illegal. In several cases, she received a full apology from the members of Congress who had accused her in the first place.
The USA's reputation was one of communal partner under Obama; now it's war monger and brutalizer. The lies about Obama not backing his words are irresponsible. and partisan bullshit. He was criticized while in office for having our military in too many places, while being simultaneously criticized for making America look militarily weak by not using them enough. It's irrational fear-mongering. Fear is not respect. We were respected during the Obama years, and not the world is afraid and holding their fingers on the red buttons, just waiting for the USA to overreact and cause a new war. 5. The drain the thing has been proven wrong over and over. He hasn't drained anything. He has filled the Executive Branch with his billionaire friends, and his own family. We have never in our history had a President who so blatantly and openly gave positions of power as favours to his backers. More than 20 people in the President's campaign and advisory team -- people he then hired to fill White House positions -- have been charged in the collusion investigation, and many of them have already pleaded guilty to their crimes. If he drained the swamp, it was only to fill it with toxic waste.
Chad A. Craig - I am in full agreement with your words above. Thank you for saying what I was thinking - but so much better than I ever could.
George July 4, 2018 at 12:17 pm " Why is it nobody on the left can see that Obama is the one that started this racial split within our country, denounced the police force, and stripped our military of much needed funds. Why can’t the left acknowledge the fact that the some of the top people in the DOJ and FBI corrupted the government in favor of the person they thought was going to win. "
Easy on the Kool-Aid. Just sayin'
"Why is it nobody on the left can see that Obama is the one that started this racial split within our country...."
Right. It was Obama who started slavery, Obama who started Jim Crow, Obama who started the KKK and Obama who started segregation.
You might want to dip into a history book.
incurious george you are spouting serious extreme right alex jone conspiracy shiite at this point and given up any right to be treated with tolerance let alone civility from this point on.
You focus on fantasy when there is plenty of very real racist abuse being directed at people just for the color of their skin. Which the only thing Obama did as president was intimidate the racists scum enough to keep them under their rocks and afraid to openly threaten women and children which has since cadet bone spurs got elected become a sadly too regular occurrence.
Yep. I think the only reason this guy is getting any publicity at all is to try to paint non-democrats as racists, and keep pushing the false narrative of a vast white supremacist/nationalist movement. If this man received 2% of the WHITE vote in his area, it would shock me. These kind of morons would make me ashamed to be white if I didn't know that stupidity doesn't discriminate by race, religion, creed, national origin, or sexual preference.
I guess some of us have forgotten about the separation of church and state.
Maybe next time it should be politicians who are burned at the stake. That would wake them up and help them remember. We'll start with the most prejudiced politicians. Now all we have to do is form a lynch mob.
Do we really need to argue over this as long as his backing has been pulled? There will always be jerks out there with radical ideas and the first amendment guarantees him the right to do that. We need to work on the positive to over come his evil. The overwhelming publicity over stuff like this just muddies the water. I personally think he should fall off the face of the earth, but that's not very Christian, is it?? I do think he would have been lynched just.....not even 100 years ago! Wouldn't that have been a shame? NOT!!!
Of the thousands of mythologies, and tens of thousands of dieties, I often wonder why people use the word 'god' as if it meant anything.
Anything can be a god... not much weight in such a generic word.
Which mythology system are you referring to ?
What particular diety are you claiming to speak for ?
Why would other gods, divas, spirits, or entities listen to anything ?
The Natrual Creator if all of creation, obviously plays NO favorites - just ask a T. REX. Oh, you can't the dinosaurs are all gone.
Most life forms are EXTINCT. The current set of life forms are experiencing mass extinctions - all because of humans.
Homo sapien seems like a well advanced and developed species, to themselves.
But the T. REX thought the same about themselves...
Right up until the end.
If you wamt to know more about the Creator, just study the creation...
EARTH is a well written book, millions of years old and containing many chapters.
Homo sapiens would do well to pay attention to the Ice Age Chapters, and the up and coming " SNOWBALL EARTH ".
Not much survives the cold snaps.
And in the far future, one day the next new top species might marvel at the dead and empty cities, wondering about humans the way humans wonder about the first dinosaurs...
WE WERE NOT HERE FIRST and WE WON'T BE THE LAST.
I was raised white christian. I was drafted to a different path. Then suddenly I am treated like a piece of trash! Freedom of religion for white mainstream christians ONLY! That is the only religious freedom in America!
(and of course worshiping 40 ft Owls on redwood groves, making snuff films with children)
" The Buddha divided all questions into four classes: those that deserve a categorical (straight yes or no) answer; those that deserve an analytical answer, defining and qualifying the terms of the question; those that deserve a counter-question, putting the ball back in the questioner's court; and those that deserve to be put aside. The last class of question consists of those that don't lead to the end of suffering and stress. The first duty of a teacher, when asked a question, is to figure out which class the question belongs to, and then to respond in the appropriate way. You don't, for example, say yes or no to a question that should be put aside. If you are the person asking the question and you get an answer, you should then determine how far the answer should be interpreted. The Buddha said that there are two types of people who misrepresent him: those who draw inferences from statements that shouldn't have inferences drawn from them, and those who don't draw inferences from those that should. "
What answers decrease your suffering?
What Questions cause you to suffer?
What meaning can you find in your pain?
Well put and accurate in content. The Four Noble Truths do not speak of suffering but rather a way to end it..... be mindful of your thoughts and actions. Control your desires and you will be much happier.
He's 75 years old? It's got to be Dementia. It seems once Dementia sets in, these old people say racist things and start acting weird.
The Rebel Flag thing was stupid, totally a 1st Amendment issue. No reason to take away the Rebel Flag because of it's history, just like the Cuban Flag represents communism or Haitian Flag represents wide spread, unchecked corruption.
Also, the author of this article referred to one of this kook's comments as "victim shaming". It's time to stop referring to minorities as "victims". It's actually demeaning and as long as society labels them as such, they will never be seen as anything else.
I'm with you on victim shaming, but disagree regarding dementia. Walker didn't just start spouting racist, anti-Semitic ramblings when he reached senescence. He's been a moron for a long, long time. A lot of people with dementia are gentle souls, at peace with everyone.
Oh! Goody! In the African culture their has always been that odd light skin member of a tribe. That odd one that is different only by the lack of pigment in his skin. I see that it is true that it also runs in Mr. Walker family history that ever so often a person is born of light skin. I wonder if he has sickle cell also?
The one and only thing I thank Donald Trump for is that his lack of candor, fueled by his unabated need for attention, has drawn out the racists, the fascists, and other social miscreants... even in my day to day work, I am finding that people who on the surface are perfectly lovely people, and who think they are progressive, not racist, etc. are, in fact, people who would turn their own family members over to the Nazi's.... It is perhaps the one and only good thing I can say about the man: he has drawn them out and made them bolder, and by their acts (and what they say) we now know who and what they really are.... Take Care out there...tk
Yes! Like the cockroaches they are, we can stamp them out, once and for all!
I have scrolled through the comments made by all of the ULC ministers that are posted and I find some very disturbing. When we joined the ULC movement, generally speaking, we were pledging ourselves to the oneness of our group. No matter what the culture, or faith doctrine they followed. I assume that it also meant whatever their political agenda might be, that when it comes to our ministers, they leave their "racial hatred" and "political hatred" at the door and treat everyone as brothers and sisters, respecting their individual beliefs.
When you address "race" it is a scientific fact that none of us is a "pure blooded" anything! Our ethnic roots go back into history in many different directions. This may surprise some but if you take a DNA test, you will understand what I am saying. But one thing is certain, we all do belong to the human race.
You find people on both sides of the political fence who are on the wrong path. Satan does not differentiate between Democrat or Republican. This is an easy decision, do not vote for him. Be careful who you vote for! Look at the background and voting records of each candidate. In the last election I voted for Democrats, Republicans, a Libertarian and an Independent. If you vote only for Democrats or just for Republicans then you are lazy and what is wrong with this country.
Satan Rome's among us looking for Evil hearts n weak Minded people, Those who are Confused about what they Stand for or Against Both are as Important as the Other, Voting a Totally Split ticket sends Mixed messages to our Leaders n Makes it Hard to Govern. Democrats r Constantly Disrupting Society with Dividing the Country into MANY Radical Victim Groups outside of Mainstream Americans. You know the ones who live in "FLY OVER COUNTRY" an are not from NY. or The Left coast. Many Libertarians an Independents are Also Making Give away Promises they CANT KEEP after Election time. Nothing is FREE if it Comes out of Another persons Pocket So called Haves n Have Nots..If this Candidate Was Black or Mexican an was Real Proud of it There would not be a PROBLEM. Its ONLY when WHITES Male or FEMALE is Proud of their Heritage an Voices it Is when the VICTIMS jump up n say That's not Right ,Racist, Nazi,
We ALL Have FREEDOM of SPEECH An you people May not Like it when your View is SHUNNED But You just don't Vote for him or Her. But don't get MAD when A lot of People Do vote for Someone you Disagree with
GOD = LOVE.... How can love have a color, gender, shape or size?
