Nana Weighs in on Paula Deen…

Look…I don’t like the use of the “N” word–period! I didn’t let offenders call each other that around me either when I worked at the prison, either. If someone is going to get offended by another group using it, then it is a word that should never be used at all in the English language when speaking to each other. I taught my kids this as well. If it is okay for one group to use it but not another, that is not acceptable. It creates problems that result in OTHERS being attacked for their skin color as well and that is RACISM regardless of who does it. That being said, I’m touching on one more thing here. Paula Deen…The woman did use the word in private conversations 27 years ago and when helping to plan her brother’s wedding. That does not mean she conducted herself as racist in the workplace. However Bubba Hiers did. HE is the one that made African-Americans enter and exit through the back doors and such.

I do not think this woman suing her is going to win the lawsuit because anything used in a private conversation off the workplace premises is not admissible in court in any suit of this nature–and the incidents in question happened while being supervised mainly by her brother at HIS establishments. She’s going after Paula because she is the goose that laid the golden egg. It’s that simple. She seems to have forgotten that if Paula Deen had not fought her brother, she’d have never gotten that job in the first place. He did not want to hire a woman. I also think the media coverage of this is nothing more than trying to stereotype the entire South. Look what they did with Dawg the Bounty Hunter…Do you think for one minute if someone from NJ  or CA were to do that they’d bother covering it? No. they did it because these two are from below the 36th parallel and if they can run a story that will make the South look bad, they’ll take that ball and run with it almost every single time.

Seriously…Remember the story about Vidor, TX some years back or Jasper, TX? Let me refresh your memory here:

Granted it was written in 2006 but makes a good point.  Here’s another one:

My only question here is, why was Barack Obama the one to sign in the legislation about these hate crimes? This should have been done a LONG time ago.

The ONLY time the media got away with this bullshit in CA was during the O.J. trial when they covered Mark Fuhrman’s testimony.  I do believe that there was so much focus on his use of the “N” word that the real evidence was ignored. In short, I think O.J. did it. I used to think he was innocent, but knew who did it, until other stuff came to light after the trial was over.

If members of the media are going to accuse someone of being racist, they need to open their eyes, quit shining their anchor chairs with their asses and look around them. Racism is alive and well in America and it isn’t limited to white people.  As far as I’m concerned, if a race war ever were to start, it will be because of the media antagonizing everyone by covering such stories. I’m sure Charlie Manson will gloat from his prison cell if he’s alive and that happens.  Coverage of this is a waste of time but it was well planned and calculated to feed the beast of another “-ism” that has a term of its own. It is called regional bias.

Let the courts handle them if it’s workplace related…It’s time for the media to learn how to STHU.  America is divided enough without the media covering this crap because the real aim is to further divide the country down geographical lines.

This is No Country for Old Racists…Seriously!

I am going to say this again and again until those of a collectivist mindset gets it right…RACISM in all forms is WRONG. It should not be allowed to be taught in our culture–whether it be  in academics or in society. To raise children to be this way is abuse and should be treated as such. It does not matter if it is a professor or a school teacher, if they teach anything like that, they should be permanently barred from teaching in all 50 states and barred from  setting foot on ANY campus, and if they are here on a work visa, it should be immediately revoked and they should be sent home.

Now what sparked this you ask? Aside from the fact that my ancestors were here long before anyone of European descent–including Spaniards set foot on the place?  It was one statement by this man:

There should be no tolerance for this type of teaching at ANY level of education in America and teachers/professors with these views should not be in ANY educational post in this country.

There should be no tolerance for this type of teaching at ANY level of education in America and teachers/professors with these views should not be in ANY educational post in this country.  This is hate speech. It must be stamped out.

This gentleman, and I do use that term rather loosely for him, doesn’t seem to realize that not even his people–many of whom were also Spaniards who came to this continent are considered “white”.  Yes, he probably has them in his family tree…I have no tolerance for such bigotry. My grandson is part African American and I am part Comanche. For his information, my people were here long before anyone’s and yes there is Irish in my family tree but many were most likely indentured servants.

Anyone who supports this ilk is part of the problem in this country.  No artist in film or in the music industry should remain silent when these people are getting away with such hate speech. This is not about the parties anymore. It is about the people and these racists are like a cancer and must be weeded out and removed from their posts–period!  As long as these people have control of our colleges and children in the classrooms, there can never be unity because they seek to divide and conquer.

 

Why Must this Nation Be Divided So?

Freedom…Does anyone truly understand what the word really means any longer?  I remember a day when people could speak their minds without being labeled and hated by their neighbors. They simply agreed to disagree and left it alone.  We now live in an age that seems to give rise to a sentiment that change of heart can be brought about by bullying in courts or in the educational field.  If there is one thing people need to realize is that all the legislation one puts on paper will not change the hearts of the oppressed.

When a group is oppressed by another group to the point to where speaking can lead to being severely penalized–whether speaking about beliefs or political philosophy, that is tyranny.  There is no freedom in granting rights for one group without extending the same rights to another group and this is especially true when it comes to freedom of speech and expression.

To prosecute one individual for a hate crime without prosecuting others equally under the statute is no better than the discrimination suffered by minorities in the 50’s and 60’s.  IT is still discrimination because such laws are only applied subjectively and enforced as such.

It is a sad day in our country when someone murders a Native American and no hate crime is prosecuted.  It is almost always downplayed in the legal system.  It is also a sad day in this country when a woman can be killed simply for being a woman, or a girl killed simply for being “too American” and yet no one sees these as the hate crimes they truly are.   If we are going to prosecute “hate crimes” in this country it needs to be made clear that if the motive for the murder has anything to do with race, gender, ethnicity, political affiliation, etc… then it should be equally prosecuted and punished under those same hate crime laws, otherwise the laws are worthless and will result (eventually) in chaos.  There have been murders of women of different ethnic backgrounds based on pure misogyny and yet EVEN when the perpetrator admits that was the motive, it is STILL downplayed in court.

Our country should not be basing legal decisions based on the cultures of other countries. That is not done when a citizen of this country is incarcerated or killed in other countries.  We are expected to know the laws and such and even in this country, ignorance of laws is not an excuse for breaking them so how is cultural background now being considered in such matters? It is ludicrous.

WE the people have one rule of law and that is based upon the Constitution of the United States and  courts should ONLY be operating under those laws–not those of another nation or entity.  We also have only ONE financial system and that is the ONLY one that should be allowed. To allow these practices to gain a foothold will result in this country being devoured from within. Remember the Texas Revolution? Remember the American Revolution? If not, I suggest that anyone unaware of what led to those should actually research what led to them.

Even with all of this there is new group of haters emerging in America and that hate based on the following things: Geographic location, which is regional bias and political haters on both left and right who are trying to force their agendas in such a way that if either side gains too much power, we could be living under a new type of apartheid system–if not a totalitarian regime in a few short decades. But no one seems to give a damn.  People are willing to conform to anyone that says what they want to hear. They will believe any false promise made, as long as they can believe it is not THEIR rights that will on the chopping block. They will feel secure as long as they are being spoon fed the load of crap that is keeping them from actually seeing that they are being used as well.

One can rest assured of one thing. Once they get what they want, they (those controlling the agenda) will go after supporters they didn’t desire to be in their little “clique” to begin with. This includes the artists, the dreamers, and those who towed the line until that line penalized them.  It all goes back to this:  Those who gain too much power are the enemies to America. There has to be a check and balance in this country to prevent that from happening–and that is slowly being eroded right before our eyes.

They are being eroded by those who, when they run out of opponents to “eat for lunch”, it is their own colleagues they will  harass, and when they either stop resisting or are silenced, they will then start on their own young. Such is the nature of this beast that is rising among Americans.  We must learn to work together. That beast is feeding off of, and encouraging the division.  It is time for citizens to sit down together and straighten this mess out.  The “divide and conquer” strategy is an old one and those who seek to divide us are doing so to keep us from working together.

WE cannot have “all or nothing”. That is not reality and people on both sides of the political fence need to sit down together and work on a new 3rd party manifesto in their own communities to address this issue and then fix this mess.  It may be what saves this nation because those in power now sure as hell won’t get the job done–that is, not without destroying those of us who know what it means to be  free and accept others as they are while allowing those who hate other Americans for various reasons to continue to unleash not only their verbal vitriol, but their violence toward each other as well in order to push their agendas upon each other…This is not the way to bring about change. It is a way to destroy our nation.

The only danger to free thinking Americans is the status-quo. This must change and our elected officials are failing the people–both parties.  They toss a crumb while they sit at the table of America like gluttons and devour the working people‘s earnings in their feasts and then try to justify this by saying it is to pay “the deficit” yet they exempt themselves from the very laws they pass upon us.  Is this the type of entity we want our children and grandchildren to be subject to? I don’t think so.

My ancestors learned long ago to never put any trust in the government. They break every treaty and they find a way to get around what they subject the rest of us to.  The sad thing is, the American forefathers and my ancestors would be very saddened to see what this nation has become today. Maybe we should take a lesson from Iceland.  Here is how they fixed their economy:

I think they should apply this here–to homeowners and to those who got duped in the student loan schemes, which has almost resulted in a new form of  “servitude”.
