If I had a dollar for every young and ill-informed brat in this country who believes that our nation is oppressive and in need of a communist â€œsocial justiceâ€ makeover, supporting the benched quarterback who kneels during the playing of our National Anthem, I would be rich.
It would seem that education would clarify the confusion these brats experience. However, since most educators are hard-core socialists and they indoctrinate every student who is unfortunate to enter their classrooms, to reject the very system under which their parents and grandparents have prospered.
As someone said on rightbias.com, â€œIn countries where people are free, people are not â€˜equal.â€™ In countries where everyone is â€˜equal,â€™ people are not free.â€
The benched quarterback in question is Colin Kaepernick, the face of Nikeâ€™s â€˜Just Do Itâ€™ newest ad, â€œBelieve in something even if it means sacrificing everything.â€ What exactly did Kaepernick sacrifice? What is that â€œsomethingâ€ that he believes in and is it good for America or even American?
Pat Tillman, a real American hero, left a lucrative NFL career to join the U.S. Army Rangers after the Muslim terrorist attacks on 9/11. He really made the ultimate sacrifice when he lost his life in service to our country. He is the face of an American hero, not Kaepernick.
Kaepernickâ€™s latest stunt is about money and about disrespect for our country. Half of the country will probably buy more Nike products while the other half will donate or burn their tennis shoes, switch to a different brand, and the Nike stock prices will drop.
It is a stunt about money and corporatist pandering to the faux narrative of â€œsocial justice,â€ a non-existent oppression in a country where Kaepernick, a minority, was given every opportunity to succeed and made millions as a footballer. His jihad against American values and truth will not endear him any time soon to the NFL fans.
Corporatist Pandering 101 is best exemplified by a Facebook meme showing a photo of Asian women making Nike shoes with the caption, â€œThese factory workers (which are 80% female) are making Nike shoes for 20 cents an hour, working 70-80 hours a week, so that Nike can profit enough to pay Colin Kaepernick millions to speak out against oppression and justice.â€
Sean Hannity said on his show, â€œThere are millions of men and women who really sacrificed everything for strangers they didnâ€™t even know so the world, this country, could be a better, safer, freer place.â€
Untold numbers of unknown American heroes, men and women, who did not make millions, are buried in graves around the world, having sacrificed their lives so that Kaepernick can disrespect our National Anthem to make the false point that American minorities are oppressed and thus America must be turned into the image of his fellow travelers.
Every minority member of this society has the same rights and responsibilities as the majority, to follow our Constitution, not Sharia Law, to obey our laws, to respect our flag and our National Anthem, to pay taxes, to work hard, to go to school, respect the police, and study hard to become the best they can be.
Minorities are not oppressed, on the contrary, they receive special benefits and allowances that are not available to the majority especially when they go to college, seek employment, receive adjusted entrance scores, special scholarships and grants, and other benefits.
Sen. McCain embodied real sacrifice when he spent five years of his life as a prisoner of war in a Vietnamese jail. Â No matter how you feel about him, he sacrificed those five years for his country. Only people who were in that hellish jail with him, captured and tortured by the Vietnamese, can really speak about the irretrievable loss of those five years.
The rest of us cannot possibly understand any more than the village idiots pushing socialism and communism, individuals who were asleep in class when lessons were taught about the Soviet gulags, torture, starvation, and the death of 100 million innocents living under socialism/communism who died by the hands of their socialist/communist tormenting masters, Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Ceausescu, Castro, Pol Pot, to name just a few.
Various unions were successful in organizing parades on Labor Day in the â€œflyover countryâ€ where Democrats control the voting block and the narrative agenda of communist â€œsocial justice.â€ It is easy to convince people to vote for and support socialism now as they are promised free healthcare, living wages, daycare, college education, and freedom from manufactured oppression of minorities in a country where tolerance, personal success, and wealth at every income level are not found anywhere else in the world.
Alexandria Ortasio-Cortez was pictured recently with school children, speaking to them about her Democrat Socialist ideas. Democrat Socialism is an oxymoron since by definition Socialists can only be Democrats. But school children do not understand history or civics. They are a rapt and impressionable audience, mesmerized by the confusing words and ideas of one young â€œsocialistaâ€ from the Bronx who is peddling socialism.
These social justice brats in the making, who are not missing any meals and amenities of a full and happy life, will become social justice warriors upon graduation from high school or college. Â Their brains would have been washed and re-wired to hate everything remotely resembling capitalism, adopting socialist ideas and slogans, while living economically successful lives when compared to the rest of the world. They will know â€œcapitalism and Christianity are evilâ€ because their smart devices, corrupt politicians, and teachers would have told them so at nausea
