Being lectured on decency by these people

© 2016 Jim Spence - Many of us who journey through life embracing the idea that overall America is good, complete with recognition all of our country’s flaws, can only shake our heads at the contradictions all around us. The greatest contradictions to be seen are created by the elites in American pop culture.
Last night during the Grammy Awards Americans were basically lectured on the evils of Donald Trump by people with no business lecturing. Yet it seems despite a booming economy and a record low black unemployment rate, those in the music industry believe that half of America does not know how to think or vote properly. So, we need lectures. What follows in this column is the most offensive language to ever appear on this site. None of these words are mine. They are simply a sampling of pop culture including a few tidbits of lyrics sung by Grammy Award winners when they were performing before their adoring masses.
Rapper Jay-Z is a perfect illustration of how far off course Democrats have drifted. Jay-Z is married to fellow pop culture icon Beyonce, who has performed at the Super Bowl. Both Jay-Z and Beyonce were regular visitors in the Obama White House. Jay-Z garnered a whopping eight Grammy nominations for 2017. It is worth considering some of the lyrics contained in a Jay-Z concert in Philadelphia back in 2016. The following lyrics were being belted out by Jay-Z on the same night he emphatically endorsed Hillary Clinton.
The public address announcer began Jay-Z’s performance by screaming the following as he took the stage: “You’re tuned into the motherfucking greatest!” Imagine the seven, eight, and nine year-olds in the star struck audience. The rapper’s song titles that night included, “Fuck With Me You Know I Got It” and “Jigga My Nigga.” The latter song title, includes the line, “I’m Jay-Z, motherfucker!” And of course there were these memorable utterances of hip lyrics during the evening, “If you feelin’ like a pimp nigga, go and brush your shoulders off.” And this was followed by the classic refrain, “Ladies is pimps too, go and brush your shoulders off. Nigga is crazy, baby, don’t forget that boy told you. Get that dirt off your shoulders.”
Now, that is some fine art in popular culture. Apparently, Democrats think this is very classy mainstream art. When I read these lyrics, the first thing that came to my mind was, “Hey, I wonder who this guy Jay-Z is going to vote for, because I’m following him.” Then again, maybe not.
Enough about the music industry, let’s consider Democratic Party politics and public education in Pico Rivera, California. It seems that city councilman and high school history teacher Gregory Salcido was captured on video trashing the United States military. Salcido called service men and women, “dumbshits,” who are not “high-level thinkers.” He suggested that people in the military are dumb people who joined because they were poor students and that they are the “lowest of our low.” Makes you want to vote Democrat like this guy does and also see to it good old Mr. Salcido teaches your child history......doesn’t it?
There is so much more. Democrats defend immigration policies that endorse the idea of allowing Sharia Law advocates entry into America. They do so despite the fact that the females in the families of this version of Islam are subjected to genital mutilation at an early age so they will never experience pleasure during sex. My question is simple. Can this possibly be squared with supporting the freedom and dignity of women? Democrats seem to think so or at least rationalize looking the other way.

There’s even more. Recently a photograph of Barack Obama and his buddy Louis Farakhan surfaced. The picture had been kept a secret for nine years by a “reporter.” You see the photo’s protector understood that Obama’s friendship with Farakhan might be viewed dimly by non-partisans. He is probably right given a sampling of some rather infamous statements made by Farakhan. Here are a few:
“America is in trouble, and I say God is about to wipe this nation from the face of the Earth. I’m not crazy, I’m not drunk, how long do you think a nation can do evil and not face the wrath of god?”
“My god will wipe this country (America) from the face of the earth.”
“White people are potential humans – they haven’t evolved yet.”
Farakhan has had a few things to say about Jewish people over the years: “You are wicked deceivers of the American people. You have sucked their blood.”
“You see everybody always talk about Hitler exterminating six million Jews. That’s right. But don’t nobody ever ask what did they do to Hitler.”
 “The Jews don’t like Farrakhan, so they call me Hitler. Well, that’s a good name. Hitler was a very great man.”
Imagine that after hanging with Farakhan, Obama trashed Israel at every turn. Not much of a puzzle is it?
And finally it would seem that Hillary Clinton is thinking she may know how to get more voter turnout in the inner cities. She was on a video thanking all of the “activist bitches” and “supporting bitches” that helped her in her failed 2016 bid for the presidency. These ridiculous phrases were forced and unnatural, but when you are as thirsty for power as the Clintons are, you will pretty much lower yourself to any level to try to connect with those you need to manipulate.
