Meet Bevlyn Beatty

You’re gonna love this gal. I do. Two months ago, she was arrested in New York City for defacing the huge “Black Lives Matter” sign that had been painted on a New York City street with the approval of De Blasio’s leftist City Hall. To say Bev is not a supporter of De Blasio or BLM is to state it mildly. She is smarter than that.

She now has a YouTube channel with 117,000 subscribers, one of whom is me. There are only 12 videos to date. She is a successful business owner, from what I can make out, a very devout Christian, and she’s not a woman who keeps opinions to herself.

This 22 minutes will make you smile. It will make you laugh. And nod. Bev is not a fan of the victim mindset in the black community, the mindset encouraged by the Democrat Socialist Party. She is particularly critical of black men who consider themselves victims. She says they are girly men. Soy Boys. Really, I am not making this up.

The above video was made on August 30. The one below was released yesterday as she and a “partner in crime” were preparing to turn themselves into the police as requested. Bev has nothing but good things to say about the police. Blue Lives Matter to her.

The cops arrested her because they had no choice.

The second video ends with their playing Elvis’s rendition of Jailhouse Rock.

Understanding Democrats

In the next block, there’s a little grocery store, what we call abarrotes in Spanish. With few exceptions, they are very small, and they are all over the place. Some might say they are ubiquitous, but I just say they’re all over the place.

We patronize that store often. There’s another, perhaps 20 feet closer and just around the corner, that we long patronized, but the owner is such a distrustful sourpuss, we gave up on her years back. May she go bankrupt. Her husband is quite nice, however.

The store we now use has a fair stock, far better than a year or so ago when it was so poorly stocked that it was mostly useless. The owner has a daughter with severe Down’s Syndrome, and the owner is also the mother of the wife of the couple who own the house directly next to the Hacienda, a sour pair also. If someone tells you how friendly Mexicans are, come to my block for a dose of reality.

Lots of Mexicans are friendly, of course, but not as friendly as your typical resident of small-town Georgia or Mississippi or Alabama. Not even close.

Lots of Mexicans are friendly, but not as friendly as your average rural Georgia Cracker.

Our abarrotes sells us tomatoes, avocados, eggs and tostadas more than anything, but those are staples, so we go down there almost every day.

What has this to do with “understanding Democrats,” which is what the headline says? Nothing. I just thought I’d provide a little local color first. You’d like my abarrotes. No one wears masks in there. It’s like the olden days.

A year or two ago I opened a Facebook page for a while. I come and go on Facebook. I should go permanently, as should we all. At that time, I opened the Facebook account to see what my former Houston newspaper colleagues were up to. There are lots of them, and every one, 100 percent, were swimming in the Sea of Trump Hate.

A couple of old amigos who worked in the composing room downstairs exhibited good sense, but the newsroom types were all dizzy with Trump Loathing. This perplexes me. You’d expect some to dislike him, but 100 percent? And why not me? That’s the even larger question especially since I was a lifelong Democrat until 12 years ago.

Perhaps I’m just smarter than they are. Or maybe it’s because I live outside the United States. International living tends to make one less myopic.

It’s clear to me that Trump is doing an excellent job in the face of the rabid opposition he sees every day. His list of accomplishments are long and excellent. Of course, you must know where to get accurate information because most news media do not provide it.

They lie, slant and omit. CNN “fact-checked” the speakers at the Republican convention. It did not “fact-check” speakers at the Democrat convention. Could the bias be more bald-faced and arrogant?

This morning, I glanced at the Facebook page of a close, former coworker. She snarkily mentioned Trump’s “militias.” Of course, he has no militias. She was referring to Trump’s having legally and sensibly sent federal officers to protect a federal building in one of those Democrat cities where Antifa and Black Lives Matters tried to destroy it, and where the Democrat city administration looked the other way on purpose.

The Democrats’ four-year insurrection will worsen after the election.

Interesting how people can look at the same situation and come away with polar opposite impressions. I wonder what my former coworker thinks of President Eisenhower’s sending in the 101st Airborne to help black kids enter a desegregated school in Little Rock, Arkansas, in 1957? The desegregation was opposed, of course, by Arkansas Gov. Orville Faubus.

Like Abe Lincoln, Eisenhower was a Republican, and Faubus was a Democrat. No surprise.

The U.S. Army is better than a militia. Perhaps Trump will have to send in the troops, just like President Eisenhower did, after he wins the November election.

To New York, Seattle, Portland, Chicago and their disruptive ilk.

I doubt Democrats will settle down and accept democracy after Trump’s re-election. Their apoplectic, four-year insurrection will just worsen.

Irredeemably stupid?

Those who are working overtime to delegitimize white Americans have coined a term that they use as a weapon — “white privilege.”

The propaganda is that being white is a racial privilege that elevates white Americans above other Americans and enables white people to oppress blacks. It doesn’t strike those who use the term as a weapon that these same “racist white people” are the ones who elected Obama president and put Kamala Harris in the Senate.

“White privilege” conveys the idea that white people have impunity. They can abuse, even kill, people of color without consequence. Yet, it is white officer Chauvin who is in jail charged with the murder of black George Floyd, while the two black Maryland teenagers who murdered 59-year-old white John Weed at the county fair for not giving them a dollar were sentenced by white female judge Julie Stevenson Solt to “anger management training” and “behavior modification” but otherwise unpunished.  Here is the report.

The story was covered locally.

But it was kept out of national news while white Americans were pumped full of guilt for their “racism.”

The story is more than the lack of justice for John Weed and his family. Unlike George Floyd’s relatives who benefited from millions of dollars in donations from white people, money did not pour into the coffers of John Weed’s relatives. Unlike George Floyd’s death, John Weed’s did not become a national sensation.

White supremacists did not riot, loot, and burn their way through black neighborhoods. You were never even told about John Weed’s brutal murder and the pass that white justice gave to the two black thugs who murdered him, spit on his body, and danced around it in glee. So much for “white privilege.”

The outcome of the November election will tell us if Americans are irredeemably stupid.

But judge Julie Solt did much more than deny justice to John Weed and his family. She denied justice in the abstract. Sentencing a murderer to anger management conveys that blacks have impunity from punishment for injurious consequences of their actions.

Obviously,  privilege lies with black Americans. They benefit from racial quotas in employment, promotion, and university admission. There are crimes that only whites can commit and only blacks can suffer. That black teenagers have no qualm about assaulting and beating to death a white man in public at a county fair is proof that blacks are aware of their impunity.

The response to rioting and looting by the mayors of Portland, Seattle, Minneapolis, New York, Chicago and other cities have reinforced the belief of blacks that the racism of white people gives them impunity from their illegal actions. The kneeling of elected public officials before Antifa and Black Lives Matter, the imposition of stand-down orders to police, the absence of property protection against looting and destruction, the release without charges of looters, the public apologies made to the criminals by public officials, all of this clearly conveys to blacks the impression that they have impunity.

The impression of impunity that white liberals have given to blacks has obvious implications for public safety and law and order.  This is what you get.

The vicious propaganda in the United States against white people is as bad if not worse than the Nazi propaganda against Jews, and it will have the same result. Indeed, it already has. What is the difference between kristallnacht and the looting and burning of white businesses?  

Theaters, concert halls, and museums in downtown areas of America’s racially diverse cities have an uncertain future. People who live and work in downtown areas and use public transportation will find life increasingly risky. Indeed, cities could collapse as apparently is happening in New York.

What is the difference between kristallnacht and the looting and burning of white businesses?  

The propaganda against white Americans never lets up. We have the anti-white propaganda film, “The Long Shadow,” which defines “social justice” as prevailing over white people. This summer PBS has broadcast this indoctrination film in 50 cities, and a second wave is on its way. It is the kind of film that softens up white people to accept widespread looting and burning as  justified “peaceful protest” over George Floyd’s death, a death that they were never told occurred from Floyd’s overdosing on fentanyl, a dangerous opioid.

The demonization of white people in the United States has reached the point that the media, the universities, and the Democrat Party are anti-white. The Democrats have selected an anti-white “woman of color,” Kamala Harris, as their candidate for vice president. Harris has even called her running mate, Joe Biden, a racist, although she is now backing away from this accusation, accusing him only of being friends with racists in Congress.

If Democrats win, the likelihood of visibly impaired Joe Biden serving four years is slight. He will be succeeded by Harris, and many suspect that is the plan. Biden’s only function is to serve as the way to put an anti-white female of color into the presidency. What comes next? Gun confiscation and defunded police? An open season on white Americans? You might scoff, but this is already the case in sections of some cities.

A racially diverse political entity cannot exist in peace with equal rights and protection of law if one race is taught to hate another, or races are taught to hate one other. In the United States for many years blacks have been taught to hate whites. Blacks and whites are taught that being white is a privilege that prevents social justice. This privilege allegedly comes from whites as slave owners who have continued their dominance over blacks.

In the consciousness that has been created for blacks, whites were the only slave owners and blacks the only slaves. As the syllogism goes, slavery is racism. Therefore, white Americans are racists. This is the lesson in school and university classrooms, and it is the message of The New York Times 1619 Project.

This is not a formula for the success of our racially diverse society. Yet it is the formula that white liberals, white progressives and white leftists have created and institutionalized.  

Donald Trump is especially hated, because he was elected by the “racist white working class,” the “Trump Deplorables.” All propaganda organs are allied against Trump. If white Americans cannot see through the propaganda and put Democrats in control, they will have cut their own throats. The outcome of the November election will tell us if Americans are irredeemably stupid.

Why I left the Democrats

fat
Sports Illustrated “model.”

AND WHY YOU should do the same.

It started for me in 2007 when it came to light that the Obamas had sat for 20 years in the church of the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, he of the “Goddamn America” sermon. Wright was quickly muzzled by Obama’s handlers.

It went downhill from there between me and the Democrat Party for which my entire family had proudly voted for decades.

There was Political Correctness, that ham-fisted ideology that blossomed in the 1990s and just got worse. Later, the lunacy kicked in. Putting fat gals in the Swimsuit Edition of Sports Illustrated in the name of “equality.” Obesity is a serious health issue, not something to be glorified. Obesity isn’t just another valid lifestyle choice.

And there is Cancel Culture. Share our opinion or be fired. From the disturbing, it’s descended into madness. Take Aunt Jemima off the syrup jar. Change the names of sports teams. Don black clothing and masks to march and riot in the streets.

Can’t dress like Pancho Villa for Halloween unless you’re Mexican. Actors can’t play disabled people in movies unless they are themselves disabled.

Last night at the restarting of the NBA games, every player and coach on both teams, 100 percent, took to their knees before the national anthem, thumbing their noses at the flag of the nation that made them wealthy and privileged.

Conservatives are squelched online by Big Tech. Black Lives Matter — which consists to a great degree of white leftists whose aim is Marxism, a word they wisely removed from their website not long ago — still laughably states on its website:

We disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family.

The film classic Gone With the Wind is blocked from online streaming. Statues are toppled, not just of Gen. Robert E. Lee but the Great Emancipator Abraham Lincoln himself, which demonstrates a dizzying level of ignorance.

And nincompoopery.

The owners of a Michigan Bed & Breakfast were browbeaten recently into removing a Norwegian flag outside their business because it resembles a Confederate flag.

Defund the police! Imbecilic.

Speaking of nincompoopery, here’s a very smart and brave girl who goes by Cringe Panda online. Her internet fame has skyrocketed since the first of the year. Watch her address the appalling state of public education.

No need to watch the entire thing. The first five minutes will educate you.

All of the above and much more flows totally from the left side of the political divide, those people who vote Democrat. All of it, 100 percent.

And if you are unaware of the things I mentioned, consider finding news sources other than The New York Times, Washington Post, Huffpost and MSNBC.

You’re being duped.

If you are aware of the things I mentioned, and you still vote Democrat, that is far worse, and I’m ashamed of you. But let’s move on to:


JOE BIDEN

The presumed Democrat presidential nominee is that hated thing, an old white man, and decades-long political hack. How did this happen?

It happened because actual Democrat voters, most of whom are not Marxists, participated in the primary elections, and apparently grass-roots Democrats were not happy with the radical choices they saw on the debate stages. Every Democrat, for instance, raised a hand when asked if they supported “free” healthcare for illegal aliens. Even Joe.

Voters opted for the old shoe they knew, smelly as it is.

Tulsi Gabbard, the best of the sorry lot, would have shot her candidacy skyward had she the bravery to leave her hand down to the question of healthcare for illegals. The move would have stuck out like the proverbial sore thumb but in a positive way. She killed her chances with that one raise of the arm.

She was the only one who had a prayer of beating Trump.

Biden is old, older than Trump, and plainly has cognitive issues which makes his vice-presidential choice far more important than usual. If you vote for Biden in November, know that you’re actually voting for the vice president to be president.

He will nominate a radical woman “of color” because the leftist party bosses have him by the short hairs. He’ll do anything to be president. He’d get on all fours and bark.

Take a close look at the vice-presidential nominee, and think hard about how Democrats are running cities and states these days. The riots, lawlessness, Antifa, BLM, high taxes, vagrancy, high-priced housing, tent cities, and so on.

Again, if you’re unaware of these things, consider finding news sources other than The New York Times, Washington Post, Huffpost and MSNBC.

You’re being duped.

Consider doing what I did in 2007: Leave the Democrat Party.
