Debating Racism - Soapbox Jr.

Trying something a little different this week. Our friends at Media Research Center and CNSNews who regularly ran dad's soapboxes - and my recent "Soapbox Jr.s" - on their website asked me if I wanted to try writing something about current events after largely writing about dad for the past 3 months, so here we go. I may not be my dad, and I'm not quite as eloquent as he was, but we were pretty simpatico when it came to politics. - CD, Jr.

Wednesday night while watching the vice-presidential debate, I had to turn off the TV or I was going to throw something at it when Kamala Harris, the Democratic nominee for VP said that at the presidential debate, Donald Trump refused to condemn white supremacists and that he told them to “stand down and stand by.”

I just about lost it.

So, I’ve devised the only sensible plan I can think of to allow President Trump to put this to rest once and for all. Donald Trump shall henceforth be required to condemn, white supremacists, neo-Nazis, anti-Semitists and all forms of racism every hour on the hour for the remainder of his life, and if he fails to do so, everyone will know with absolute certainty that he’s a racist.

There are multiple videos of Trump denouncing racism in all forms over many decades, but still, the lie persists.

First of all, that Trump said that some of the skinheads and neo-Nazis that were at the Charlottesville rally were “very fine people,” the very reason that Joe Biden cites as convincing him that he needed to make a run for the White House is unequivocally an absolute bold-faced lie.

Not everyone in Charlottesville that was opposed to Confederate statues being torn down that day was a skinhead neo-Nazi. Some were just people that opposed the tearing down of historical monuments, and not torch-carrying white supremacists.

Here’s the exact quote in context, unlike the mainstream media will give you, “I’ve condemned neo-Nazis. I’ve condemned many different groups. But not all of those people were neo-Nazis, believe me. You had many people in that group other than neo-Nazis and white nationalists. The press has treated them absolutely unfairly. You also had some very fine people on both sides.”

So, he starts off condemning white supremacists before he even says anything about the fine people on both sides.

It’s the opposite of the “mostly peaceful” protests that turned into burning buildings, riots and looting. According to the press, there are a very few bad apples, but most of the people out there looting and rioting are “very fine people.”

But double standards are the only standards that the media has these days.

And say what you will about the Proud Boys, which Biden sycophant Chris Wallace threw out in the debate as a white supremacist group, the only problem is that they are NOT a white supremacist group. They aren’t even exclusively white. Their leader is - in fact - Cuban. 

I saw a quote not too long ago that said if Donald Trump is a racist, he’s really bad at it.

For one thing, his daughter is married to Jared Kushner, who is Jewish, and she herself converted to Judaism, so his daughter, son-in-law and grandchildren are Jewish, no neo-Nazi in good standing would stand for that.

He also wouldn’t have worked so hard on criminal justice reform with the First Step Act which undid a lot of the Joe Biden 1994 “Crime Bill” which led to mass incarceration of African-Americans.

Before the pandemic, unemployment in the U.S. was at historical lows, including African-American and Hispanic, not to mention also female unemployment as well.

But there still seems to be this “well-known” fact that Donald Trump is really a racist, so to drive the point home, here’s some quotes about race that readers should be quite disturbing:

“Unless we do something about this, my children are going to grow up in a jungle, the jungle being a racial jungle with tensions having built so high that it is going to explode at some point.”

“You cannot go into a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent, I’m not joking.”

“I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy. I mean, that’s storybook, man.”

“I think the concept of busing…that we are going to integrate people so that they all have the same access and they learn to grow up with one another and all the rest, is a rejection of the whole movement of black pride is a rejection of the entire black awareness concept…”

“We should challenge students in these schools. We have this notion that somehow if you’re poor, you cannot do it. Poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids.”

“Well, I tell you what, if you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.”

All quotes courtesy of the incomparable Joe Biden.

What do you think?

Pray for our troops, our police, our country and the peace of Jerusalem.

God Bless America!

Now Or Never
Amen, Amen & Amen Charlie you are as spot on on this one as your dad ever was on any of his topics. I would use the phrase "the pot calling the kettle black" except that would imply that Trump has racist leanings like Joe Biden, which is as far from being true as the East is from the West. President Donald J Trump does not have racist bone in his body. It is fact jack, that from the beginning the Ku Klux Klan is a democratic organization, That planned parenthood founder Margaret Sanger was a racist white woman who spoke to the KKK about her eugenics plan for her " Negro Project". Folks it is now or never to turn from the socialism, racism, and communism of the democrat party and return to the principal that this great country was founded on. The Deceleration of Independence of the USA states “We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness…" Make no mistake about it, if the Biden Harris ticket takes over this country, we will never return to greatness. Harris stated the other night that her & Biden were people of faith, I must ask, faith in what? Not faith in the God of Abraham, Issac & Jacob that this country was founded upon. You have Pelosi now making a last ditch effort to remove Trump using the 25th Amendment, while they keep Joe Biden pumped full of drugs just to keep him vertical. They are scared that their day of reckoning is upon them, but hope that their fake news buddies can keep putting out the lie that Biden has lead in the polls so that when they try to steal the election with mail in ballots, dead people and illegals voting they will offer the polls as proof of Biden being the peoples choice. Rest assured that Trump is the Choice of people who work for a living, people of faith that know that life begins at conception and abortion is plain and simple murder, no matter how you candy coat it and try to say that it is the woman's choice. I saw sodomite South Bend mayor Pete trying to call out Pence for being on the ticket with a womanizer, As I have said before if Trump has any issues about women it is between Melania , Donald and God. At least Trump knows to leave the boys alone and chase women....... In other words these demons from hell are throwing out everything to create smoke and mirrors to deceive as many as possible in these last days......nuff said God Bless the USA , President Trump & Israel....Plowboy

Done Good
Well, you did real good on that. BTW: you spared another television from eminent destruction. I already heard stories that people were ready to destroy their TVs or even shoot them. How many were saved from that demise, we cannot know. But yours is about number 10 by my count. ~~NIMOC

"At least Trump knows to leave the boys alone and chase women[.]" Chasing women is just as much of a sin as chasing men. Either way it's sex outside of heterosexual marriage. And if Pete was heterosexual, he'd still be a liberal. -- Tru Cola

Great Article, Charlie!
Charlie, I'll probably dispute some of what you said. Regardless of that, great article. Keep up the good work. -- Tru Cola

Okay now, here's my dispute.
Charlie, you make some very good points. But he’s claimed that he can’t get a fair trial from a native-born judge because of his Mexican heritage. And he’s also said that non-white native-born congresswomen should “go back to where they’re from”. Those comments Biden made point out that he’s not much better as far as race is concerned, but it’s no excuse for what Trump said. Trump is still undeserving of praise, as far as his presidency in general is concerned. -- Tru Cola
