Do you remember this?

So interesting to see “Progressive” Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly……

Then this….

….and viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful Nation on earth, how our government is to be run. Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. Then come back and show us how….

And finally, this….

….it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!

Take a look at the dates. July 14, a mere 16 days ago. Yep just over 2 weeks ago and it feels like ancient history.

Why? In part because over the weekend we were given these gems..

Rep, Elijah Cummings has been a brutal bully, shouting and screaming at the great men & women of Border Patrol about conditions at the Southern Border, when actually his Baltimore district is FAR WORSE and more dangerous. His district is considered the Worst in the USA……

….As proven last week during a Congressional tour, the Border is clean, efficient & well run, just very crowded. Cumming District is a disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess. If he spent more time in Baltimore, maybe he could help clean up this very dangerous & filthy place

Why is so much money sent to the Elijah Cummings district when it is considered the worst run and most dangerous anywhere in the United States. No human being would want to live there. Where is all this money going? How much is stolen? Investigate this corrupt mess immediately!

Elijah Cummings spends all of his time trying to hurt innocent people through “Oversight.” He does NOTHING for his very poor, very dangerous and very badly run district! Take a look…. #BlacksForTrump2020 https://t.co/seNVESZUht

Now I could go on and on and try to figure out how the Occupant of the White House is playing (and I love this term) “3 dimensional chess” or some other nonsense. Or how it’s a brilliant (or otherwise) campaign strategy for his upcoming reelection.

Or I could try to approach it from a martial artist perspective and try to engage in some deep philosophical discussion about how this is somehow really deeper than most “normal” people see.

But no, instead I’ll fall back on something my mom used to tell me when I was a kid growing up, “If it walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it’s a duck”

This person, this male person (because let’s be honest, this is someone who’s FAR from being a man), is a racist. A bona fide, card-carrying, 100% indoctrinated racist. No grey area here at all folks. Just total racist.

And let’s also be clear about one more thing, he’s proud of it. He wears it like a freaking badge.

……And he wouldn’t have it any other way.

Yet in spite of the obvious, news outlets like MSNBC and CNN will try to fill air time with pundits or “experts” who will go into such amazing convoluted explanations of how the Occupant is wrong. They’ll go on rants about how #MoscowMitch ‘s state or how other Republican districts are far poorer than Elijah Cummings’ district is. They’ll go on…and on….and on about how wrong the Occupant is.

And entertainment networks like Fox News will “racistsplain” how his cowardly Twitter attacks are in no way anywhere near racist. Because if there’s anything a bunch of white bread well-to-do folks on an entertainment network know better than anyone, is what racism is.

Then all of these networks will have folks from the Occupant’s camp get on their shows and explain to all of us what he really meant. Or they’ll tell us how he’s a “fighter” and always punches back, (oh for the love of God, don’t get me started on this garbage), or they’ll somehow try to blame this whole mess on either Hillary, Obama, or just the entire Democrat party in general.

Like my better half always says, “If you’re explaining, you’re loosing”.

At some point during the whole debate, the news networks will have yet another “expert” on their set(s) and they’ll try to tell us how to react. How we should or should not take the “bait” that the Occupant is dangling in front of us. How we should just ignore it, and keep our eyes on the prize, or not get into the gutter with him because that’s where he lives and you can’t beat him in his house.

No my friends, sometimes the truth is right there staring you right in the face. There’s no grand anything, no ulterior motives, not even the thought of laying the foundation for anything. This is just racism. That’s all. NOTHING ELSE.

So what should we do?

WE FIGHT!!!

We call it for what it is. We shine a light on it for the world to see. We fight fire with fire, we call it out, we do whatever we have to do to let not only this piece of garbage who’s occupying the White House, but those who support this vile outlook and those who sit silently and fearfully refuse to stand up to it, that we’re not going to allow this to continue.

We tell the world that this has gone on for far too long. That too many lives have been ruined or taken away from us.

And we never stop fighting.

Now, you may look at my photo and criticize me by saying that I wouldn’t know either. Fair point, but here’s what I will tell you. I have no idea what it’s like to be a minority. I have no idea what it’s like to fear for my life as I’m marching arm-in-arm across a bridge, or what it’s like to be a female in a male dominated world. I’m a middle-aged white male who’s not exactly struggling in life. I actually have it rather good. I have a strong family, a couple of good jobs, and I get to practice my arts in the way that I want with the people who I want to practice with. I have great instructors who are also good friends. So how can I call these folks out? Well, as someone smarter than I once said, “There’s a lot of things that I can’t explain. For example, I can’t explain what porn is, but I know it when I see it.”

Peace.
