For the past four years I’ve listened to New York liberals complain about how embarrassed they are to be American with Trump as our president.
Congratulations Leftists, you've returned the favor 10-fold.
What an embarrassment this country has become in recent months, and it’s just getting worse.
On Wednesday of last week, New York Mayor Bill De Blasio, in the running for most embarrassing living American, had the statue of former President Teddy Roosevelt removed from its perch in front of the Museum of Natural History in Manhattan.
Roosevelt is seen on horseback, flanked by a Native American and a Black man on foot.
You can see where this is going:
The same mostly white, hypersensitive crybabies demanding we remove statues of George Washington and even Abraham Lincoln (seriously?!) have won another battle.
The question is, how did we let this happen?
How has such a small faction of the extreme left, this group of politically correct toddlers screaming in a temper tantrum on the floor, taken complete control of our country?
There are those responsbile we can unequivocally blame — ourselves.
Since late May when George Floyd died in police custody, in Minneapolis, Minnesota, the Left has owned the moment.
There is no real truth anymore, most people aren't even aware that George Floyd was committing a felony, resisting arrest, while high on a "fatal" dose of fentanyl, which may have actually killed him.
Most don't know these facts. If you try to raise the facts they'll scream "Racist!"
Two weeks ago, Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., told Jacob Blake she was "proud of him."
Blake was paralyzed in a police shooting.
From the media coverage, most would assume he was in a park reading a book to his kids when an evil white cop walked up and shot him multiple times in the back.
Sadly the racist facts differ from the narrative being pushing.
Blake, accused of sexually assaulting a woman and then stealing her car, broke a restraining order going to a woman’s house.
When police arrived, Blake violently resisted, then went for knife in his car before being shot.
This is not a tragedy, this is 1,000,000% Jacob Blake’s fault.
This is the man Kamala Harris is proud of.
Ten years ago Harris was throwing Black men in jail for smoking pot, now she's pandering to accused rapists.
If you want this lunacy to stop, its on all of us to call it out.
Its on all of us to quit living in fear of upsetting the politically correct mob.
When you see a Black Lives Matter sign in the front yard of your neighbor’s house, ask them how many blacks got shot and killed in Chicago this past weekend.
When they don't know (and they won't), laugh in their face.
We, the normal, productive, tax paying, reasonable members of society are oppressed.
We are being force-fed an extraordinary line of bs from the left, and the politically correct culture has us too scared to call it out.
Reasonable people, posting black boxes on Instagram, supporting BLM’s ridiculous anti-American nonsense because they're afraid of what happens if they don't.
Someone might call you racist.
That's the one line nobody has figured out how to respond to.
It's the reason corporations, media, politicians, actors, athletes, and even everyday folks are pandering to BLM.
It's the reason we are all too scared to speak up.
This is oppression.
It's extraordinarily effective, and it is so because we're allowing it to happen.
