The Dumbing Down Of America?

12 12 2022

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

History must be accurate, or it provides no perspective or foundation or frame of reference for future generations.  The Democrats gave us slavery, and perpetuated it after our Civil War with the Ku Klux Klan (or KKK), segregation and later, Lyndon Johnson’s “Great Society” programs that destroyed black families and consigned them to economic servitude.

Abraham Lincoln and his Republicans brought slavery to an end, at a terrible price.  That story is never told as the Democrats and their thugs are defacing our monuments and the like.  Lincoln, Ulysses S. Grant and William Tecumseh Sherman won the war militarily, but Lincoln was assassinated.  After his successor Andrew Johnson’s presidency, Grant was elected and served two terms.[2]

Once again, the Democrats sought to roll back the freedoms afforded to black Americans, as if they never existed.  Military units were segregated for almost a century after the war ended.  Indeed, Edward W. Brooke—for and with whom I worked, and who was the first black U.S. Senator following Reconstruction—served in a segregated American army unit in Italy during World War II.[3]

While many of America’s blacks were and are deeply and genuinely religious, and trust in God, others have turned their backs and scoffed at religious beliefs.  The thugs, slugs, hoods and mongrels of “Black Lives Matter,” Antifa and other far-Left groups have burned our cities, killed or hurt innocent Americans including our police, and destroyed black and other businesses.[4]

In the process, they have remained at the bottom of the economic totem pole, while Hispanic-Americans, Asian-Americans and other minority groups have risen above them and passed them by.  Yet, incredulously, the Democrats have pandered to them by proposing reparations for slavery, preferences in college admissions and other governmental benefits.

Today, African-Americans constitute less than 14 percent of our population, but turn on the TV and one might think that they are in the majority.  Barack Obama and Meghan Markle project their hatred of white America in essentially everything that they do.  And thugs like George Floyd are deified, exacerbating racial tensions.[5]

America has been “dumbed down” because uneducated blacks have often ridiculed their educated counterparts.  Years ago when I took taxis in Washington, D.C., they were often driven by well-educated and very articulate blacks from Africa, who spoke perfect English and were attending Howard University and other schools, and looked down on their American counterparts.

The bright side to all of this: there is a God that will lead each of us through this.  Slavery should not have existed—nor should human trafficking and slavery exist anywhere in the world today.  All of us are equal, and yes loved, in the eyes of God.[6]  And racial hatreds and stereotyping should cease to exist.  Every American should be given an equal chance to excel, and to do his or her very best.[7]

During the time that the author worked for and with Brooke, he was a conservative Republican.  Indeed, the only black professional staff member who worked for him quit because he was not outspoken enough on racial issues.  Later, his staff was coopted by Democrats, and Brooke lost his reelection.

[7]  A listing for a PBS TV show entitled “Love & Respect With Killer Mike – Fab 5 Freddy” said the following:

“Mike sits down with hip hop pioneer Fab 5 Freddy for a conversation about his groundbreaking life and career in music and pop culture.”

First, hip hop is not mainstream American music, or so the author believes.  Second, who on Earth has ever heard of “Fab 5 Freddy”?  Third, perhaps “Freddy” is giving his very best; and stereotyping or prejudices underlie lots of non-black Americans’ beliefs.





Twitter Engages In Racist Censorship, And Is Un-American

18 09 2022

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

Twitter—based in the uber-Leftist and crime-ridden San Francisco—has suspended the accounts of those who tell the truth about Oprah, Meghan Markle and others.  This constitutes racism.

Oprah has admitted that she was a prostitute.[2].  By the same token, the UK’s Prince Philip warned about marrying Meghan Markle.[3]

For decades, Hollywood’s “casting couch” has been the way that young, aspiring actresses have risen in Tinseltown.  The sleazebag Harvey Weinstein used it to the nth degree.  Jeffrey Epstein had his on the East Coast and elsewhere.

Certainly, Meghan Markle is a racist ho, who has used the casting couch to reach the British Monarchy, which Prince Philip warned about.  But Twitter wants to whitewash both Oprah and her.

Having grown up in Hollywood—and having two friends who just retired at the very top of Hollywood’s two biggest studios—and having worked in the U.S. Senate where I saw young women prostitute themselves and be used and abused like groupies at rock concerts, Twitter would be engaging in wholesale and blatant racist censorship by suspending the account of anyone who tells the truth.

Twitter and Facebook are part of “Fake News,” which may have skewed the 2020 election results by “burying” the Hunter Biden laptop story, and other potentially-damaging disclosures about the Biden family’s criminal enterprises.

Also, they lionized the thug George Floyd, and championed “Black Lives Matter,” Antifa and other far-Left groups, whose thugs, slugs, hoods and mongrels burned our cities, killed or hurt innocent Americans including our police, and destroyed black and other businesses.

By engaging in the wholesale distortion of the truth, and the insidious burying of history, such disseminators of “Fake News” have fanned the flames of racism against our police and other Americans. The results are evident today in unchecked crime and lawlessness, unsafe cities, and the deterioration of our great nation and the lives of millions of Americans.

Lastly, will Elon Musk clean out the woke worms at Twitter if he takes over?  Time will tell.  If he doesn’t, Twitter should be shut down permanently.  It engages in the denial of free speech, which is a fundamental right of all Americans.

Also, like the rest of “Fake News,” it attempts to shut down and/or destroy those who support our great President Donald Trump, at a time when our enemies—China and Russia—are determined to weaken or destroy us.
