What a Revered Black Civil Rights Leader Says About the Confederate Flag
by S. Noble • July 1, 2015
Black civil rights icon and former Mayor of Atlanta Andrew Young says that debate over the Confederate flag is a non-issue which completely distracts from the real problem – “the fact that 93% of blacks are killed by other blacks.”
Young is widely recognized as a prominent activist for the African-American civil rights movement, having been a personal friend and supporter of Martin Luther King. Young marched with King in Selma, Alabama and was with King when he was assassinated. He was also instrumental in pushing through the 1964 Civil Rights Act and 1965 Voting Rights Act.
Andrew Young has a foundation named after him. Born in 1932 in New Orleans, he went on to become a diplomat, educator, Civil Rights activist, mayor, U.S. Representative, and a pastor.
The problems we face don’t have anything to do with a flag and he’s not interested in a big, divisive flag fight, he said.
“The flag is a symbol that means a lot of things to a lot of people” and he…admires “the restoration of Southern traditions.”
The challenge for us is “not to wipe out our past but learn to live together in the future.”
Maybe his attitude towards the flag stems from an understanding of what is really important. He once famously said, “It is a blessing to die for a cause, because you can so easily die for nothing.”
Thanks to Sara for letting me borrow this.
To start off this rant concerning the bizarre actions and ideas of the more loony leftists, I think I’ll start with the fact that our troops must adhere to the sharia during the Islamic month of Ramadan in Bahrain and other Muslim countries.

This is what the Obama administration and the US military are obsessed with as armies of jihad tear through the Middle East.
Military newspaper Stars and Stripes report:
“It actually made me want to do a lot more research into the religion,” said Petty Officer 1st Class James Ramirez.
Really? How about equal time for the Jewish faith? The Christian faith? The Hindu faith?
US military are encouraged “to experience Iftar in a Ramadan tent.”
Why anyone who is not a Muslim must stop eating (except in secret) during Ramadan is another example of Islamic supremacism. Unlike Jewish law, which pertains only to Jews, and Canon Law, which pertains only to Catholics, the Sharia asserts its totalitarian authority over non-Muslims.
During the Jewish holiday of Yom Kippur, Jews fast from sunup to sundown. Nowhere and at no time has the idea of no one else eating been considered. Nor should it.
The idea that our servicemen and women cannot have a coffee on their drive to work is outrageous and indicative of how far the West has gone in the norming of the sharia. Muslims eat a giant meal before sunup, but our boys and girls can’t have a coffee while we defend these countries in many cases? Supremacism and submission.
And it doesn’t stop there. Our soldiers (men and women) must wear long sleeve shirts. No alcohol or smoking is permitted, and if all this weren’t pathetic enough, soldiers are instructed to say “Ramadan Kareem.”
Hmmmm … I wonder if two same-sex personnel being in love, would be able to get married over there and parade around in their wedding outfits during Ramadan … or any time? I certainly wish they would give it a go. Then they might stop bitching about how bigoted and homophobic America is.
Next up, I read somewhere this morning some liberal line of certified b.s. claiming that right wing “gun lovers” have this notion that having a gun absolutely insures survival in any confrontation.
I own a bunch of guns and I don’t have that notion. I do have the notion that if someone attempts to break into my home that I’d rather have my guns than not have any. I’m sure the person who wrote the above ignorance didn’t watch the video I posted yesterday. The lady who had to wait many weeks before getting a permit to own a gun was stabbed to death … she wasn’t shot.
I think people who write the kind of crap above are the same ones who slander law enforcement … but are the first ones, because they don’t have a gun, to cry to them if something adverse happens. They probably have 911 on speed dial locked in their cell phones. My advise to them is don’t watch the clock while waiting for the cops. Just bend over and grab your ankles.
I keep reading that six black churches across the Sourh have been burned down by arsonists. Sigh … the left never gives up trying to sow the seeds of racism … Just don’t let facts get in the way.

At least two black churches in South damaged in arson fires, investigators say
Arsonists are suspected of attacking at least two black churches across the South last week, but no arrests have been made or suspects identified, officials told the Los Angeles Times on Monday.
None of the late-night attacks have been a declared a hate crime and it’s unclear whether any of the fires are linked. Social media reports that six black churches have been burned down in arson attacks are not accurate, according to local officials’ accounts of the fires.

Here are some examples of what innocent Americans get when liberals are in charge. One year after Baltimore became a sanctuary city for illegal aliens some illegal a$$hole rapes a nine (9) year old little girl. And there are much, much more.

A year after Baltimore’s mayor signed an order officially converting the city into a sanctuary for illegal immigrants, federal authorities announce the arrest of an undocumented Ecuadorian national “wanted for the brutal rape of a 9-year-old girl.”
It marks the latest in a series of heartbreaking examples involving an illegal alien haven blowing up in a local government’s face. We’ve seen this nationwide in municipalities that enable illegal immigrants to commit atrocious crimes by protecting them from the feds. There are too many cases to list here, but examples include a Salvadoran gangbanger who murdered a father and his two sons in San Francisco, an illegal alien member of a notoriously violent street gang who killed a high school football star in Los Angeles and a Bolivian with an extensive criminal record who killed a nun while driving drunk in Virginia.
Thanks Obama for flooding America with those who will do the crimes Americans won’t do. But hey, a little rape and murder of innocent Americans isn’t a big deal to liberals. Just as long as the victims aren’t victims of “gun violence.”
I saw where a liberal is gloating that some judges in Texas are refusing to marry same sex couples, yet there are licenses being awarded. I happen to personally know one judge in Johnson County who won’t perform the ceremonies. There are a couple who will. But, and this is rich, the place where the licenses are being awarded wouldn’t give them out … until a picture of a traditional bride (woman) and groom (man) was removed from the premises. Hey I don’t have a problem with gays getting married. The gloater can marry his boyfriend and I won’t say a word. Just don’t expect me to attend or bake a wedding cake.
I noticed today that Chris Christie has officially thrown his hat in the ring for the Republican nominee for president. This is going to be rich. This is one of the most arrogant s.o.b.s I’ve ever seen and I have to say I see or hear nothing that backs up his arrogance. Just another RINO who thinks he smarter than every one else. Here’s an example of what we’re going to get if this clown becomes president. He can’t even protect the citizens of the piss-ant state of New Jersey. I’d hate to see what he’d to the 350,000,000+ Americans in the U.S.
Two or three years ago the Chief Operating Office for Chick-Fil-A spoke out against same-sex marriage. The gay “community” went ballistic, calling for a boycott. It didn’t work out well for the rainbow crowd. The company I work for bought over two hundred (200) chicken sandwiches for the employees at lunch. Hours later I stopped at the one in Burleson, Texas and the line of cars in support of the place was literally endless and had been all day. You see folks, just because the left wing numbskulls along with a not too far left wing justice at the Supreme Court allegedly found a Constitutional right to same-sex marriage, doesn’t mean the decision is right or … Constitutional … or popular in America.
The outrageous lesbian-gay supporters blocked a couple of franchise stores from opening on some college campuses and other nonsense because their panties were in a wad. On a side note the Chick-Fil-A stores never treated lesbians, gays, transgender folks, etc. any different, never ‘discriminated’ against anyone.
Here’s a little tid-bit that most of you never heard about. You know, according to loons on the left, it’s only conservative “Christian” hate-filled right-wingers who go crazy with hate and shoot a bunch of people. How about this …
On August 15, 2012, a gunman attempted to enter the Washington, D.C. headquarters of the Family Research Council, carrying 15 Chick-Fil-A sandwiches, a 9 mm handgun and a box of ammunition. He shot a security guard in the left arm, and following his arrest he told police that he wanted to use the sandwiches to “make a statement against the people who work in that building … and with their stance against gay rights and Chick-fil-A”, and that he planned “to kill as many people as I could … then smear a Chicken-Fil-A [sic] sandwich on their face”.
Well, despite all the bitching, crying and blowing snot by the gay groups …

Chick-Fil-A Ranked Nation’s Top Fast Food Chain, Liberal Haters Hardest Hit
Looks like liberals have another reason for gnashing of teeth and rending of clothes since Chik-Fil-A was just ranked as the nation’s number one, biggest selling fast food chain.
It’s the highest ranking fast food restaurant in the U.S. for customer satisfaction, according to the American Customer Satisfaction Index Restaurant Report 2015.
The chicken restaurant was the subject of controversy and protests a few years ago after its CEO made remarks that offended the LGBT community.
But that hasn’t stopped fans from flocking to its restaurants, and giving it high marks for customer experience.
“It is laser focused on a particular product,” said Forrest Morgeson, director of research at ACSI. “It focuses on one thing and does it exceptionally well … and that is chicken sandwiches.”
This is Chick-fil-A’s debut on the list and its score is the highest ever achieved in the category.
I think I’m stopping by on my way home!
You see Lorra B this doesn’t fit the Marxist Barack Obama’s narrative. Let a couple kids get killed via “gun violence” and he’s on it … wiping phony tears from his eyes, grim faced and lecturing us about how we must stop the violence. This is the perfect example of how much Obama, Democrats and liberals genuinely love the lives of children.

Unless you live in a cave — in which case you wouldn’t be likely to be reading this anyway — you are familiar with the Supreme Court decision involving gay marriage. You’ve also likely seen the flood of rainbows in celebration, including our own White House being lit up in a vibrant display.
However, did you know that there’s been a petition requesting the White House be lit up gold for just one day to support another cause? The request has been made for years — and denied.
When I first saw the Facebook post above, alleging that the pediatric cancer community has attempted for years in various forms to persuade our leaders to turn the White House gold for just one day, but were denied, I was skeptical. Could it just be someone not pleased with the ruling on gay marriage trying to stir the pot? Unfortunately…

I’m trying to grasp any common sense in this.

“Arizona citizens can continue to participate in voter registration drives without worrying about not having proof of citizenship documents,” Shirley Sandelands, of the League of Women Voters of Arizona, said in a statement Monday.
So, when Democrats hit the streets conducting voter registration drives (In Arizona … think illegal aliens out the wazoo) no one has to prove they are a U.S. citizen.
“This is an important win for the National Voter Registration Act and an important step forward in making sure that all that are eligible are registered to vote,” President of the League of Women Voters of the U.S. Elisabeth MacNamara said in a statement.
Now that statement is meaningless. What Elisabeth is saying is that if you’re registered to vote … you are eligible without proving you’re eligible. I thought being eligible is proving you’re eligible. It appears to be working in reverse. But right now the entire nation is turned around … working in reverse.
Barack Obama and his ilk has been flooding America with illegal aliens, many of them have criminal records and many of those have been set free to continue committing serious crimes. And illegal alien sex-offenders are being released into American neighborhoods without being monitored. But we’re not allowed to ask the for proof of citizenship? I’m trying to come up with some logic behind this …
With the Supreme Court finding some Constitutional “right” for same-sex marriage, they have essentially redefined what marriage has been for thousands of years in every society since the beginning of time. This is a box that should never have been tampered with. Hocuspocus13 brought something to my attention which I’ll share with the good folks here. There will be many consequences of this bizarre Supreme Court decision …

I’m pretty disgusted right now. When I look at the Democrat front-runner for the presidential nomination I can’t get past the fact that this female is the best they got? An entire life-time of the stench of corruption followers her and Bill Clinton … yet Democrats, liberals, and the most unsavory and abominable human rights violators on the planet are pushing hard to make her president.
And then there’s this …

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch today released new State Department documents showing that Hillary Clinton and the State Department’s response to the Benghazi attack was immediately determined by top Obama White House officials, particularly Ben Rhodes, then-White House deputy strategic communications adviser, and Bernadette Meehan, a spokesperson for the National Security Council. The new documents were forced from the U.S. State Department under court order in a Judicial Watch Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:14-cv-01511)).
Michelle Obama continues her world tour with her daughters and mother at tax-payer’s expense, justifying the multi-millions of dollars being spent on her globe-trotting with a phony campaign called “Let Girls Learn.” Money well spent I’m sure.
