We have faced the enemy, and they are us.
It seems the world has turned upside down. Young people today are being fed a re-engineered view of history by racist people who call others the same. Even with a Black President in the White House, the blame is still placed on old white guys.
Our colleges and our legislators seem to have forgotten the Civil War and the thousands of white men who died to free the slaves. Or the World Wars fought under the American flag so these yoyos could have the right to say stupid things.
In 2010 at Cinco de Mayo, Mexican students allegedly threatened violence because of shirts with Old Glory on them. School officials, consequently, suspended the right of other students to wear those shirts. Political correctness at its worst. “What’s wrong with these white people holding up American flags in Morgan hill??? Racist a–holes,” Gia Lee wrote.
Really, are the Morgan Hill Hispanics, not American citizens? Did no one from that area fight and die for this country. The American way of life should not be disrespected like this. Who is the racist? Why did the school system cave in to the pressure?
The situation in our country has deteriorated from there. In the last few days, the Declaration of Independence has come under attack as being racist a well. Louisiana lawmaker Barbara Norton (D-Shreveport), argued that America’s founding document was racist during debate on a bill requiring public school students in the state to recite the Declaration of Independence daily.
“For the Declaration of Independence only Caucasians (were) free,” Norton, who is black, said Wednesday during the debate on the floor of the Louisiana House of Representatives. “And for you to bring a bill to require that our children will recite the Declaration of Independence I think it’s a little bit unfair.”
But aren’t black children in America free today? Free because of white men and women who gave their lives and aid during the fight for their freedom. The principles of the Declaration of Independence were worth fighting for then and now. I’m an old white guy. I say when blacks in political office make the kind of statement she made, she is attacking the sacrifices white people gave, including their lives. That is racist.
Actions like these above bring dishonor to all those who served this country, be they White, Black, Hispanic, American Indian, or Asian American. Shame on you.
