Re: “Biden’s Big Border Lie”
“If people from Central America are coming in droves to cross the border into the U.S., it’s safe to say that either something in their home countries is repelling them, or something in the U.S. is attracting them. With only one of those two conditions is it our fault. I’m sorry, but Trump’s border wall and tightened security just can’t be anything that’s attracting them, and thus this crisis of migrants at the border cannot be Trump’s fault. It began to ramp up as soon as it was clear that Biden was to be our new president. This is all as obvious as the long ears of a jackass. No one should be surprised at Joe Biden’s attack on our sovereignty and Jen Psaki’s lies to cover it up.” —Illinois
“While blacks can get ahead in America by working hard, that is not the whole story. I worked hard. I got laid off from jobs because when the economy got bad, the last in was the first out. I’ve been fired for political reasons. I’ve been mistreated and screwed by superiors because they were incompetent and I was a threat. But, this is America! Because I lost one job, I was forced to get a better job. When the Navy threw me out after 18 years, with no retirement, I was able to get two years reserve time and get that retirement and a civil service retirement. I retired in 2008 at age 62 and have been living the life. The point? In America, great things happen to all people who are willing to put in some effort and stay out of trouble.” —Nevada
“I am completing my degree, which began when my hair was thicker and dark. It is appalling that a ‘Colonial Period U.S. History’ course is simply the 1619 Project in a cloaked guise. There’s one sentence on the Pilgrims and no mention of why they fled England or about the Magna Carta. We are treated to three full chapters on America’s racist slavery policy. Muslim involvement, African tribal involvement, and ‘indigenous people’s’ involvement are ignored or downplayed with hogwash such as ‘slaves were often made a part of the family’ in the text. George Washington can’t be mentioned without noting he owned slaves. I understand why the young are so anti-American. Most have been thoroughly brainwashed. It’s not an education at all. Sign me ‘soon to be expelled.’” —Texas
“There is an elephant in the room! I have friends of color who emphatically resent the whole idea of CRT and the 1619 Project. Their opinion is, succinctly, mine as well. The ‘elephant’ is the monumental chip many people of color have on their shoulders. They walk about and dare anyone to challenge their perverted self-delusion. The fact is that America has, indeed, enslaved hundreds of thousands of people of color. That’s historically correct. In the same vein, America has committed an egregious genocide of the original natives of this North American continent. Both atrocities are condemned in the gravest of terms. Given an honest retrospective, America has recognized its errors and has attempted to make atonement for these acts.” —Oregon
“If an adult manipulates a child with an end goal that is sexual in nature, exploiting that child’s inexperience or lack of knowledge and understanding of a situation, that is called grooming and that adult is called a predator. If the same adult takes the same action with an end goal that is political in nature, that is called progressivism and that adult is called a Democrat.” —Illinois
