Knitting with Only One Needle

Some thoughts during this time of chaos and hypocrisy.

August 3, 2020


Befuddled Joe Biden has promised that under his administration Islam will be taught in the schools. Are they going to teach about female genital mutilation, stoning of women, homosexuals being hanged or thrown off buildings, and honor killings? Does that mean that children will learn about Ramadan while Christmas and Hanukah displays remain verboten? Jovial Joe also assured voters that he will end what he calls the “Muslim travel ban” from known terrorist countries such as Somalia, Yemen, Iran, Afghanistan, Libya, and North Korea. Invite a terrorist to a BYOB event - Bring Your Own Bomb.

A white 2-year-old toddler was held down while a 20-year-old back man put his knee on the crying baby’s neck, his accomplice pinned the baby’s hands behind it’s back. The caption on the photo was “Black Lives Matter Now MF.”  Isaiah Jackson has been arrested, the child was taken to the hospital and released. The New York Times and all leftist media did not cover this event. If there had been a photo of a white man with his knee on a black toddler’s neck with a “White Lives Matter MF” caption – it would have been in the news for days, with endless stories about the perpetrator, his education, his family, his arrest record, and on and on. This did not fit the leftist narrative about a racist white society and was therefore ignored.

Bernell ‘Ras’ Trammell, a 59-year-old black Trump supporter, was often seen with large bold signs supporting the President. Last week he was shot while sitting in a lawn chair outside his store, by a black man on a bicycle wearing a mask. Police are looking for the killer. Did we see a photo of him, or talking points on the tragedy of his murder, on the nightly news?

The Civil War ended slavery in America in 1865. More than 360,000 Yankees from the northern non- slave states died to free slaves in the south. Shockingly many underinformed Americans think that slavery started in America. The evils of slavery have been around since 6,000 years before Christ. It is written about in the Hebrew Bible, the Old Testament. Slavery has existed in most countries in Europe, and in Persia, Saudi Arabia, African nations, India, Yemen, China, the Cherokee Indians, and more. There are 167 countries that have slavery today, including India, China, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Uzbekistan, North Korea, and others; this affects about 46 million people in the world.

The “1619 Project” undermines true American history. It states that the date of the first slaves in America was 1619; claiming it is the true founding of our nation. This is complete bull-crap poppycock put out by those that hate America’s culture and heritage. The ‘1619 Project’ is used to promote the false idea that America was founded on slavery, is a racist country, and that all racists are white conservatives – especially Trump supporters. 

Monuments and statues have been torn down, defaced, and destroyed; or they have been removed to safety by city governments and patriotic groups, in Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Delaware, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, Nevada, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Washington, and West Virginia.  Does it make you wonder why rioters and protestors did not find these statues and monuments to be racist symbols of oppression when Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, or Barak Obama was president?

“May you be unable to chain bears. May you lose every bear. May your nets be entangled.” This is a rough translation of an ancient curse from Carthaginia. May the anti-American forces at work have their nets entangled.

Well done Darlene. The American people's ignorance of it's history is as troublesome as its media's failures to publish fair dialogues. Nor is there much of a literacy effort to change the knowledge you've discussed. As Mr Franklin is reputed to have said, 'It's a Republic madam... if you can keep it.'

Well written Darlene. It’s a crying shame what’s going on right now.

Always so right on. Reading your comments and knowing that what you say is absolutely true is such a pleasure as well as informative. Miss your meetings at the Palm Desert Resort and Rotary, both leave a real empty spot in my not active life in these days.
