Now Carey we are usually on the same page of ideology, but the one thing that i despise about liberalism is it's direct lies and distortions of historical events and cover-ups of the truth.
I am a trucker, independent businessman, i have had far more experience in dealing with corporations, businesses and banks than i care to mention, i know who runs this world.
I am not a Nazi, Nazi sympathizer or Ku Kluxer or any other name anybody wants to assign to me, but the one thing you will get from me is the absolute truth from me of what i believe, and i believe what i believe through life experiences.
I will throw out a few things and if you want dissect them, feel free to do so.
The Media: The media has an agenda, that agenda is to promote liberalism, or socialism to be more honest and that media/entertainment complex is run mostly by people of Jewish ancestry, we can mention names, but why bother.
This is the same media that virtually ignores the rampant black on black crime epidemic that is killing 10,000 young black men a year.
This same media grandstands the "rare" white on black crime while completely ignoring black on white crime which takes the lives of 6,000 whites a year, that's not even taking into account the assaults, robberies and rapes that are inter-racial, and of which inter-racial rape is almost virtually a black on white crime, in fact inter-racial crime period is virtually a black on white affair.
Entertainment: The filth and violence coming out of Hollywood is shameful at best, then again it is a propaganda tool.
Hollywood likes racial strife movies and tv, but have you ever noticed that it is always a bad white guy versus a good black guy?
The media and Hollywood would have us all believe every white man is a Klansman, and all blacks are victims.
Banking, or international banking: is almost entirely composed of Jews.
Immigration, legal and illegal: US, Canada, Australia and all of Europe is subjected to massive non-European immigration, even though the people of these countries don't want more immigration.
Why?
Why is it that only European countries must have multi-culturalism?
Non-native immigration?
Why not the Chinese?
India?
Africa?
Pakistan?
Why is it only European people who are subjected to this?
In less than a century with current immigration trends there will not be one, not one European people nation left on this planet that retains it's homogeneous population, in fact most will be a minority in their own nations.
I'll tell you why.
Fear.
Fear that a nation may rise up against the powers that be, that Nationalism may rise to challenge them and their agenda at world domination, they fear Europeans, and with good reason.
Historically Jews have been expelled from at least 109 nations, many more than once.
The agenda is very simple, destroy the fabric of any European nation by destroying it's culture.
Flood all these nations with many different cultures, nationalities and religions, that way they keep fighting among themselves and it prevents any unity.
Who pushes immigration and gay marriage in the US the hardest?
Diane Feinstien, Chuck Schumer and Barbara Boxer, all Jewish and all duel citizens of Israel, which btw: has tight border security, laws against gay marriage, in fact laws against marrying non-jews, which they support.
Separation of church and state: Why is it a manger scene is illegal now, but was a common sight in the US just a few decades ago in public?
Why is it CHRISTmas has been reduced to x-mas?
Why is it pushed to say "happy holidays" instead of Merry Christmas anymore?
It is illegal to have a cross or any depiction of christianity on the lawn or inside a government building in the US now, even in the White House, but curiously it isn't a violation of church and state to light the Jewish Menorah on the white House grounds.

Why is it ok to have black pride, Asian pride, Hispanic pride and gay pride, BUT bad to have white pride?

Love watching Riley and his ilk whine, whinge, screech and witch that no republicants were invited to the Washington event yesterday. Wrong again, you unfair and unbalanced folks!
Boehner and Cantor, the House’s two most senior Republicans, were invited to speak at the 50th anniversary of the historic March on Washington — but declined. According to a list obtained by CQ Roll Call, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., was also invited. Bushes too. and the silly Scott man.
“This was truly a bipartisan outreach effort,” said a spokesperson for the event in an email statement to CQ Roll Call.“All members of congress were invited to attend and the Republican leadership was invited to speak. Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s office was very helpful in trying to find someone to speak at the event. Making this commemoration bi-partisan was especially important to members of the King family, too.”

Wot wot, none of the republicants could take time to attend?
Perhaps the republicants thought Lincoln being there was enough.
Way to get votes, guys ---- the stupid party once again shows its true colors (or lack thereof). LOLL
Republican Party officials reached out to organizers of this week’s March on Washington commemoration with a series of suggestions for possible GOP speakers, but several of the people they recommended were never contacted with invitations to speak, according to Republican National Committee officials.

Miscommunication and lack of coordination appear to have played a role in at least some of the invites not going out to Republican office-holders. Event organizers say they assumed Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., couldn’t attend, based on a failure to RSVP to an earlier, more general invitation. But his office says he was never actually invited to speak, and he may have been able to attend if he was formally invited.

More than half a dozen different prominent Republicans were invited to speak, but several of the invitations went out quite late in the planning. All sent their regrets.

If Oprah really gave a shit about the black community, she would help clean up schools and neighborhoods here but she chose to build a school in Afric,a a country that has absolutely nothing to do with her black heritage. She was born here and so was her dad and his dad and his dad and on and on.

Oprah can't make black people better. They have to do it themselves. At some point you have to take responsibility for your own actions and unfortunately there is a huge segment of the black community that has learned to depend on the Gov for everything. Instead of taking their free education and using it to pull themselves out of poverty, they choose to talk like idiots, act like idiots, make gang banging seem like something to strive for and then whine about it when kids are killed before they even make it into their 30's. Stupidity breeds poverty and the more schools Rahm closes in Chicago, the more prisons that idiot is going to have to build in the future. Has Oprah addressed the school closings in her own town? Nope.

Good luck Oprah. Build some more schools in Africa. Maybe that will help the black community here.....NOT.

Yes, I'm sure a 50 yr celebratory event "snuck up" on republiKLANS and that's why they didn't attend. They are a little sidetracked trying to prove Hillary Clinton is a lesbian, a thief, a murderer, a deceiver etc. You know, important stuff like that. lmao

Your alibis are weak and carry no weight. Just as the military's absentee ballots were sent out late, so were the invitations to the right. It's a win win for the left. Lets go back to the original speech, were there any from the left there..........no, they were all republicans, because the Kennedy's were scared of King and were having the FBI follow him and build a file........bet you didn't hear that on Maddow.

Cantor was the busiest and could not attend because Cantor was meeting with a North Dakota oil and gas lobby group.

"They asked a long list of Republicans to come," civil rights leader Julian Bond said on MSNBC Wednesday, "and to a man and woman they said no."

Tells you a lot about the republicants ....
