So much to be THANKFUL about....Kaepernick's disease

© 2016 Jim Spence - It’s Thanksgiving 2016. The presidential election was over more than two weeks ago now. It is time to give thanks.......but much of America does not seem quite ready for that.

Over the years I have written hundreds of columns on this site. Many of these columns have addressed the hostile takeover of our public education system by people who have no use for the United States Constitution. In fact, increasingly, those who have engineered the hijacking of American public education have received the help of the entertainment industry and so-called journalists. Accordingly, pop culture has replaced a nationwide reverence for the Bill of Rights with a lamentable reverence for the destroying of the true meaning of words. For example, the word "sanctuary" when coupled with the word "city," actually means, a place where laws are ignored. That is not a sanctuary, it is the beginning of anarchy. And the terms "divisive" and "polarizing" only apply to Republicans winners when Democrats lose. The truth is "divisive and polarizing," is actually the result of Democrat's inability to convince people that terribly failed policies are not failing. 

Earlier this month I made a trip to the San Juan River in Northern New Mexico to fish for trout. I did so to get away from the drumbeat of politics in America. I did the same thing back in November of 2012 when I sensed that the Obama policy wave (and court rulings) that took away my health insurance, raised my taxes, made it very difficult for me to arrange a loan at the bank, and increased my electric bills etc., were sure to continue. 

It turned out this year that I, like many others, believed the bogus polls the media used to justify forecasting the 2016 election outcome for Clinton. As we all know by now, Hillary Clinton will not be appointing another Ruth Bader-Ginsburg clone to ignore the U.S. Constitution.

Let's be generous here. It's Thanksgiving. Let’s set aside all of the personal failings of both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. The election is over. So much has already been written about the election. However, not enough has been written about what has happened during every election in America over the last fifty years. The Democratic Party has literally spent untold billions of dollars over the last five decades trying to convince African American and Latino voters that America is inherently racist. Like the sun rising and setting, the Democrats did so again in 2016.

How badly do Democrats want to divide America along racial and ethnic lines? When Donald Trump flipped more than 200 counties this year, counties that voted for Obama in 2012, Hollywood and the news media immediately suggested it was because the voters were inherently racist. These voters must be like the shape-shifter Odo on the Star Trek Deep Space 9 series. Apparently, these voters in these counties that flipped again were racists when they voted for Bush, NOT racists when they voted for Obama, and then racists again when they voted for Trump.

Of course Democrats can’t seem to offer any plausible explanations for how or why this "racism on, racism off, racism back on again, actually occurs.......mainly because there are no plausible explanations to support their tired old worn out racist labeling. In America, only Hollywood and the biased news media can pony up dumb assertions without any facts to support their ridiculous claims.

Allow me a couple more paragraphs to help you get a better idea of just how whacked out pop culture has become in America. Consider actor Brandon Victor Dixon. Dixon is one of the actors in the Broadway play, "Hamilton." This man, complicit with the entire cast of the play, thought it was perfectly acceptable to stop in mid script last weekend to lecture Vice President-elect Mike Pence regarding "equality, sexism, and diversity. It seems that Pence was in the audience, having paid, along with everyone else, to see a play.

Let's pause for a moment. Can you imagine what the mainstream media's reaction would have been if a GOP actor (are there any?) did the same thing to Tim Kaine that the cast did to Pence if Hillary had won? Can you say crucify? You can bet the GOP would have joined the condemnations.

Comically, it turns out that poor Mr. Dixon should be heeding his own advice. Dixon is on the record for having used extremely derogatory terms toward women when tweeting his own thoughts back in 2013. Here is an example of the morally superior Dixon's thought processes when he exchanged tweets with a woman named Tamika Lawrence:

@TAMIKASLAWRENCE tweeted: “Remember when NFL players would just play the game, bang mad ho's, and collect their checks? Guess that's not enough anymore.”

To which the model of moral superiority Dixon responded: “The problem is ho's aren't what they used to be. If ho game would step up, cats wouldn't get distracted.” 9:06 AM - 27 Jun 2013

Pardon me here. The last time I checked, the term "ho," was patently misogynist and exceedingly offensive. How did the news media handle the revelation of these vulgar tweets by a guy with the balls to lecture someone else on morality? Well.....while Dixon’s lecture to Pence was covered reverently (he was congratulated by news outlets controlled by Democratic Party group think), Dixon has yet to be asked by those same news outlets to explain his own disgusting misogynist tweets. Apparently everyone in the media was too busy casting the first stone at Mike Pence for being a Republican to confront Dixon with his hypocrisy.

Laughably, it turns out that Mr. Dixon has Colin Kaepernick's disease. This is a disease that also afflicts so many of the Trump protesters around the country. It seems that the public education system has coddled and pampered Dixon, Kaepernick, and the rest of the progressive children in our country for so long, millions of them are actually too lazy to vote. And it is this "collective" laziness that makes me so thankful on Thanksgiving 2016.

You should be thankful for this too!
