The President Was Right
Manny Holds a Vigil
Manny Prays for Peace
Good Morning, Breakfastpoppers. Today is Sunday, August 20, 2017. Our pious friend, Manny, is at the breakfast table this morning. He is upset about the violence that occurred in Charlottesville, Virginia this week. Two ugly hate filled groups collided and President Trump called both of them out. The Main Stream Media went berserk, the Dems went crazy and some Republicans joined the insanity as well. President Trump described this hate filled nightmare correctly, but he was criticized for not singling out the Nazis in his initial comments. He did later on, but this president cannot catch a break. He will be vilified for every single thing he does, and for every single word he utters.
Manny has asked me to extend an invitation to all the Poppers to join us for breakfast this morning. Manny will be preparing Banana Bread French Toast for our enjoyment. I will be mixing up a batch of Irish coffees to add to the pleasure. We hope to see you soon. I'll leave the door open.
Fake News and the Truth
Thanks so much for joining me this morning. The nightmare in Charlottesville was made worse by the bad reporting about what took place. The media seemed to suggest that Neo-Nazis alone reigned terror upon the city in order to prevent the removal of the statue of Robt. E. Lee. The opposing group was not a band of upright citizens trying to correct a wrong. They were a band of thugs who showed up to cause mayhem. The MSM reported that a 22 year old college student , Takiyah Thompson, toppled the statue. They portrayed this young woman as a hero, when in fact she was just another thug in attendance. The public wasn't informed that she was a member of the Workers World Party. They didn't mention it because doing so would paint a different picture of this woman than the one they were anxious to tell. The Workers World Party is an ugly offshoot of the Socialist Workers Party. The group believes that North Korea has an absolute right to have nuclear weapons. They are anti-America and pro- hatred and violence. These people came to Charlottesville to cause trouble, as did the Neo-Nazis. When the president called out both groups he was being accurate. The media doesn't "do" accurate, they prefer to exploit the emotions of a clueless public. The good news, if there could be any, in this incident is that these groups do not represent our nation, and their numbers are relatively small. I abhor their existence, but as much as it pains me to hear from them, I want to keep abreast of what they are up to. The other piece of good news is that Takiyah Thompson was arrested.
Destroying our History
These fools who are intent upon removing our history have unleashed a blind ugliness across the nation. First, it's Robert E. Lee, then it's Thomas Jefferson. The stupidity and insanity is spreading. The attack on American history is unprecedented. Cities are being pressured to re-name their streets and tear down their monuments. The mayor of Baltimore announced that the city will consider the removal of many Confederate statues in the city. The mayor of New Orleans did the same. I wonder, what comes next? Will we have book burnings in the streets the way the Nazis did? We will purge our school books of every reference to anything in our history that someone finds offensive? Will we stop teaching about the Holocaust? This craziness has to stop, and it is up to the saner people among us to make some noise. Congress is weak. The heads of major corporations are fools. Many of them resigned from the presidents council on economic affairs in a ridiculous act of protest. Who and what were they protesting? Who are they helping by refusing to cooperate with the effort to create more jobs and more opportunity? The ability to think straight is on the decline. This is a very shameful time in our history. Perhaps we should replace a statue of George Washington with that of a court jester. If we don't straighten up, we will become a nation of fools. If we insist on erasing our history we will, no doubt, repeat all our mistakes. I wouldn't be at all surprised if we decided that another war between the states was a fine idea. How in the world did we come to this?
The Core of the Problem
The core of the problem is the inability of the left to accept that Donald Trump won the election. Their "resistance" appeals to every idiot who has a love of trouble and hatred and a low opinion of our nation. It started with the election of Barack Obama. He and his chums elevated race relations to a new low. He made a habit of turning local incidents into national issues.The eight years of his presidency accomplished one thing and one thing only. Our moral compass was shattered. The left forbid free speech if what was being expressed was against their sensibilities. The MSM moved as far left as possible, and in the process fake news was born. The dumbing down of America reached new heights. Political correctness turned common sense upside down, and a generation of "forever babies" was born. Now we are erasing our past and destroying our future. I don't know where this road will lead, but it can't be good.
The moment I wake up
I say a little prayer for you.....
