“If you are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem.” — Eldridge Cleaver

Lady, the kind of mentality you promulgate, victim-blaming and justifying the superiority of one human being and/or their actions of unjustifiable aggression or dominance over another, is one of the reasons we are facing the multitudes of epidemics of crises in America right now.

Your weak and blind opinions are held only by those who DO NOT ‘KNOW’; only by those who speculate, conjecture and continue to regurgitate the same old factless hash heard from other factless pulpit pounders.

Critical thinking is beyond you because it might involve you getting your hands ‘dirty’, getting to know your subject matter rather than espousing inaccurate and baseless ideologies from the protection of your white walls and couch potato “Idiocracy”.

Your participation in continuing to infuse life into false propaganda — ‘weaponized’ propaganda — draws a line in the sand you self-righteously and hypocritically accuse others of doing.

In fact it’s ‘pseudo-intellectual’ comments like yours that not only prove her point, but give credence and substance to her argument.

THANK YOU, DiDi, for saying it! Keep on saying it!

“First they came for the Illegals and Undocumented. And I did not speak out because I was not an Illegal or Undocumented.

“Then they came for the LGBTQs. And I did not speak out because I was the ‘Right’ Sexual/Gender Orientation.

“Then they came for the Poor, Homeless, Elderly, and Disabled. And I did not speak out because I was not Poor, Homeless, Elderly or Disabled.

“Then they came for the minorities, and People of The ‘Wrong’ Skin Color. And I did not speak out, because my skin was the ‘Right’ Color.

“Then they came for those who were not of their Religious Beliefs, Political or Philosophical Persuasions.

“And I did not speak out.

“I looked the other way.

“But then. They came for me.

“And there was no one left to speak for me.”
