The Inconvenient Truth About the Republican Party

When you think of the Republican Party, what comes to mind? If you’re like many Americans, you may associate the GOP with racism, sexism, and general inequality. It’s a commonly pushed narrative by left-leaning media and academia, but as former Vanderbilt Professor of Political Science Carol Swain explains, the Republican Party was actually responsible for nearly every advancement for minorities and women in U.S. history—and remains the champion of equality to this day."

Your Master Bedroom Is Being Renamed Over Alleged Slavery Ties

Your Master Bedroom Is Being Renamed Over Alleged Slavery Ties | INTELLIGENT WORLD TODAY | Scoop.it
The biggest bedroom in your house won't be known as the master bedroom for long—real estate agents are ditching the term due to slavery connotations.
Al Cannistras insight:

Yeap – no more MASTER bedroom because some don’t like it. They bring down our statues, they change our language, and they definitely are telling us HOW TO THINK (if you are not with them, you are considered against them). They are destroying a free civilization – and they are being allowed to do it. They got white folks on the run (how DISGUSTING to be born white!) – and corporations with no balls are falling in line with politicians suffering from the same problem.

 

They are DESTROYERS not builders. They tear down, not construct. America needs to rise to the occasion!

 

I suppose all the S&M folks are going to have to rethink their playrooms…  no more SLAVES, no more dungeon (ASSociated with SLAVES) – yeap, people are so offended these days. Of course, they OFFEND ME – what do I get to do about it – I am a WHITE AMERICAN.

 

Pull up your panties and quit letting yourselves be manipulated – or the dying nation will fall sooner!

Remove John Wayne’s name and statues from Santa Ana, Orange County Airport
Al Cannistras insight:

Just how long is this going to go on before REAL AMERICANS have had enough? – and DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!

 

THE USA we know, that people fought and died to build and protect, is being destroyed from within. Every skank who yells racism or discrimination is being heard. Corporations are all falling in line – out of fear - and that fear emboldens the dragon even more. REAL AMERICANS are not being heard.

 

The plan is well orchestrated. The very foundation of this country which allows these people to spew their own style of hatred is being challenged. Erase history.  Everyone who did anything to build this country is now being ripped apart – from tearing down statues to renaming buildings. Control the education system – rewrite history, do not teach civics, destroy capitalism, and feed the masses Marxism loaded with promises of equality and an unachievable promise of a level playing field. Everyone who does not follow the prescribed extreme thinking is deemed the enemy.

 

The media is espousing that WHITE is synonymous with evil. The BLM has been hijacked and has seized an opportunity for an unprecedented level of publicity to mindless followers unable to see the agenda. The country is in trouble fueled by radical extremist who need to be banished.

Social networks are broken. Here's how to rebuild trust

Social networks are broken. Here's how to rebuild trust | INTELLIGENT WORLD TODAY | Scoop.it
Facebook and Twitter can do much more to make their platforms trustworthy. Clear labeling—not mass deletions of dicey content—is key.
Al Cannistras insight:

Actually. broken social media pales to the fact that the entire nation is broken.

.

Frightening to see a nation honoring and memorializing idols and creating a hero where none exists.

.

Frightening in that lemmings fall in line and anarchy is allowed in favor of social order.

.

Frightening in that a powershift is rewriting history.

.

Frightening to seeing the collapse of yet another civilization.

.

Then again, history does repeat and, so it will as lessons of the past are erased.

.

Frightening for the children who will inherit the world.
