Charlotte

There have also been some “protests” in Atlanta.  And the Charlotte rabble is threatening to cause trouble at the NFL game on Sunday unless Cam Newton kneels during the national anthem.

Before he clubbed Rotney King, Sgt Stacey Koon saved a black tranny prostitute by giving it mouth-to-mouth. Don’t know if he ever got to cash that check.

Confused reports about Washington mall shooting. Could still be a jihadi. Reports of a White guy. Gang-related. All kinds of BS.

Skagit County police and fire scanner audio described the suspect as appearing between 20 to 25 years old, with a “skinny build,” black messy hair and wearing a black shirt.

roflol. Did FBI have intel on the first attack? Or any others that they didn’t orchestrate themselves?

Talk of causing trouble at tomorrow’s NFL game in Charlotte until Cam Newton agrees to kneel during the national anthem.

That goes to show you how symbolism-obsessed these people are. What is someone kneeling really going to get them or their cause? Kneeling, to be followed by more kneeling.

Highly doubt Cam Newton will do that, he’s pretty apolitical. Plus he doesn’t need to rabble rouse to get attention because unlike Kaepernick he’s actually a very good quarterback.

Hey welcome back. Got some humble pie for you.

Yeah I was wrong about Trump, but so were a lot of people. I still say he doesn’t win the presidency.

If he does I look forward to Kardashian/Honey Boo Boo ’32.

Of all people, “Caitlyn” Jenner got Kim to come around to Trump.

As for your other prediction, I’m keeping a second humble pie ready.

BTW, I was thinking about generational change and I realized that the Baby Boomers have held on to power so long (both candidates are in their 70s) that Gen X might actually be skipped over for the presidency–assume Clinton or Trump serves two terms, that’s 2024, I’m in the middle of my generation and I’d be 39. it’s not inconceivable a young Millennial gets elected in the ’20s.

My Sunday wrap-up which I just posted has something of interest in that stead.

My thinking is the same as yours. Just as we will never have a Silent Gen President, it went from Greatest to Boomers when Bush 41 transitioned to Bill Clinton, I don’t think there will ever be a Generation X President, because I think there could be one more Boomer after HRC or Trump, and then by then the Millennials will start to get middle aged enough to get nationally credible.

The X candidates this year were Scott Walker, Bobby Jindal, Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio. And very marginally on the Democrat side, Martin O’Malley. Nothing to write home about.

Among my universe of white rightists, I find its Millennials to be a lot more politically talented than its Gen Xers, me included.

I think we’re seeing a tick tock cycle between a generation that is culturally significant but a political dud, and vice-versa.

Also could have something to do with the size of each generation–Silents, Xers, and whatever your kids are called are small generations.

If there is a God, he will kneel. Please. Hope against hope, that the NBA encourages all of their players to sit during the Anthem.

Steve Clevenger, fired because he tells the truth.

The NFL, the NBA, ESPN, filled with apparatchiks and commissars who bend us to their will.

I hate them.

Hate, my friends, is actually a good thing.

have duly elected or appointed gov’t OFFICIALS expertly identified the Gun as a Gun or the Rifle as a Rifle…This seems like very pre-mature Journalism with no warning the the Gun/Rifle shown on video is truly a certifiable Gun/Rifle or just an optical illusion…Seems that “shooter” or prehaps “booker”, guy may be a Hispo which means propaganda Press will id him as a “white man” for political propaganda “porpoises”

That’s a funny-looking book that Arabic-Hispanic is carrying.

In an early book, Pat Buchanan wrote how JFK’s phone call to MLK’s wife during the 1960 campaign had a big effect on the black vote. They were people who responded to the dramatic gesture more than a proven record.

They’ve always been “symbolism obsessed.”
