Fallen Patriots

Do not forget a live full of treachery ...

Giuliani was reportedly paid advocate for Iran group once listed as terror org. | Times of Israel - Nov. 16, 2016 |

Giuliani, who is a favorite to take the secretary of state position in the incoming Trump administration, gave a number of speeches on behalf of the Mujahideen-e Khalq (MEK), an Iranian Marxist organization that calls for the overthrow of the Islamic Republic and purports to be the true government of Iran, prior to its removal in September 2012 from the US State Department's list of foreign terror organizations.

The MEK was added to the State Department's list of foreign terrorist organizations in 1997, primarily for its role in the murder of US citizens in Iran in the 1970s.

Mitch McConnell Addresses His Comment Comparing 'African-American Voters' to 'Americans'

"This is 2022 and being American is not synonymous with looking or thinking like you," Virginia Rep. Donald McEachin said in a statement to McConnell on Thursday, part of a larger wave of backlash from Democratic lawmakers and social media users.

"Please take 19 seconds to watch this video to understand why we have to fight for voting rights for ALL Americans," California Rep. Judy Chu wrote on Twitter, sharing a viral clip of McConnell's comment.


A bit of irony don't you think?

The FBI's Surveillance of Martin Luther King, Jr. Was Relentless. But Its Findings Paint a Fuller Picture for Historians

Obama and Family

No one can match the legacy of All American Martin Luther King ... may many find purpose in life from his ideals ... anything is possible, find community spirit. Your country is failing you - democracy has been corrupted by $$$$. Corporations are people too ... shame on a Partisan U.S.  Congress not standing for All Men Are Equal.

A lynching in Georgia: the living memorial to America’s history of racist violence | The Guardian - Nov. 2, 2016 |

Between 1882 and 1930 the American South experienced an epidemic of fatal mob violence that produced more than 3,000 victims, the vast majority of whom were African Americans. More than 450 documented lynchings occurred in Georgia alone. Lynching refers to the illegal killing of a person by a group of others. It does not refer to the method of killing. Lynching victims were murdered by being hanged, shot, burned, drowned, dismembered, or dragged to death.

I don't nuthin about no Venn diagram, women and minorities edition.
They just don't mix no how.

McConnell says he made 'inadvertent omission' in voting remarks amid backlash
I don't no nuthin about no freudian slippers.

Some states dropping 'dehumanizing' terms for immigrants
I don't know nuthin about no a-word, a-word resident, or noncitizen and citizen.

this insidious business of institutionalizing race ideology
I dont't know nuthin about those census forms. "Black or African American" is all the same to me.

Constitutional Amendments and Major Civil Rights Acts of Congress Referenced in lack Americans in Congress
I don't know how many civil rights acts the US Congress has passed and don't care. Joe won the popular and electoral votes fair and square and that's why he's building back better voting rights for  black church ladies and people of color.

Besides, Mitch O'bama agree. "We've Elected An African American President"

TheHill.com crashed, taking with it a weekend report purporting to interpret the leanings of black party balloons.

I dunno how that "sensitive" material passed muster with global POC editorial management, BUT PressTV digested the gist of the pseudo-statistical profiling on which Democratic Party strategists have relied, lo, these decades of magical margin of error, attributed to The Black Bloc (not that one, the other one).

Oh, Turtleman is American alright, he just foolishly said reality in his out-loud voice, and that doesn't square with The Uninterrupted Parade of US Exceptionalism that passes for history and civics classes in the US indoctrination system.
