    The first country to stop slavery was the USA and then went on to convince other countries. Some of the large slave owners is the US were black. The American Indians had black slaves. All of this will not be talked about.

    I think I'll borrow this to prove a point elsewhere.

    Apparently, the founder of Yale University, Elihu Yale, was not only a person who owned slaves; but also was a slave trader himself. Time to start changing the name of the college, or is this not offensive like a bottle of maple syrup is ?

    On another note, here is how antifa is celebrating Independence Day this year.......

    That sounds like a plan, Yvonne. I was doing some concentrated thinking about the days of Hitler and leading up to WWII. Winston Churchill, on the eve of the Battle of Britain addressed the House of Commons and he spoke rather eloquently regarding the need to stand up and meet this head on even though he knew his air power was out numbered. He said that to permit this sinister evil to prevail would sink all of civilization into a darkness beyond our understanding. Those were not his exact words, but the idea. We seem to be facing this same sinister evil today and it is present in several parts of the globe, but if we stand up to this and overcome this toxic mess, we shall prevail for over a thousand years and it will be said it was our finest hour.

    I had to put a like on this “heads up” because the Gettysburg Cemetery is a National Cemetery. That means that it is Federal Property which also means that it is under the protection of the Department of the Interior, a not so funny ha-ha department when it comes to events held that they have not issued permits for.

    Perhaps the announcement is just some wry satire but if it isn’t, there are indeed going to be some fireworks on the 4th and it ain’t gonna be a bunch of flags being burned.

    One of the biggest stories on social media today, is probably about the McCluskeys, a St. Louis couple who were forced to defend themselves and their home from the armed rioters.
    After seeing the horror stories on the news recently about all of the rioting, looting, and innocent people being injured and losing their homes or businesses to the rioters, this couple (both in their 60’s) were understandably concerned when the rioters came to their gated community, tore down the gate and started going through private streets.
    They first called the police and reported what was happening, but the police did not respond, so as a last resort, they took their weapons and stood out on their own porch to protect themselves and their home, as over 300 angry people came by, yelling and threatening them.

    Here is a short video showing the protestors and the McCluskeys , and their appearance on the Tucker Carlson show.

    God bless the people who stand up against this insanity. But if they are in a leftist democrat governed area they will be dragged through the legal system for anything that they can find.

    I'm sure it was scary to see a crowd forcing themselves into a gated community. But... in my opinion "the McCluskeys" should have kept their butts inside their freaking museum... er, house. :rolleyes: Get the guns ready, but why stand outside like a moron, waving a pistol around?

    Too funny Beth! Truth is, when I lived in Seattle, it was common knowledge that you’re going to get rained on 4 days per week and pooped on by the seagulls at least 1 day a week and the pigeons well, their aim isn’t as accurate as the seagulls.

    You can burn down a house from the outside. It is not like they do not burn things down.

    Remember back a couple of years ago, when we had all of those refugee caravans coming into the United States, across the Mexican border ? While most of them probably did come from Central America, there were a mix of militant Muslim refugees that were coming from Africa, and they moved into several different states once they crossed the borders.
    I remember seeing the pictures of the violence in some of the predominantly Muslim areas, and there was even a little child that they threw off of a balcony at a shopping mall, for no reason, except to do it.

    Even though these are black people, living in America, they are NOT the same as the African-Americans who are part of our country, and since they came from countries where violence and being militant was a part of life, they are now doing the same kinds of things here, and because of their skin color, are accepted by groups like BLM.

    We have escalated from antifa, who are good at protesting, waving signs, and rioting, to the BLM protestors, who were led by organized leaders, and now we have the very militant new Black Panther group, who are actually carrying weapons and dressed like para-military. They are in Georgia at the Stone Mountain park, and have been stopping traffic along the road.
    These people are not bored college kids who think that protesting is “cool”, and the right thing to do. These are dangerous adults carrying assault rifles.

    Look at this picture, and tell me that you think that they are wearing those masks to protect them from spreading “corona virus” !
