Indians Hunting Buffalo (Charles Marion Russell)
Mark Beasley, a member of the Navajo Nation, has started a petition for Buffalo, NY to change its “racist and offensive” name. According to Beasley, he speaks for his “Native American colleagues.”
Beasley writes in his petition that “Buffalo is the name of the animal that was driven almost to extinction by the non-Native forces in order to annihilate and drive out my ancestors from the American landscape.”
Further, “Within only a few years from the beginning of the campaign, all Native nations were driven off their lands and into reservations, where we have prior and since been unduly subjugated and and [sic] exposed to genocidal horrors unimaginable to the rest of the world and throughout history.”
For these reasons, Beasley writes, Buffalo “should change their offensive and racist names containing the word “Buffalo.””

Socialism is Not the Answer
I guess Rush said it best, “winners don’t compromise, losers do.” Well, I voted, and what I remember is the Republicans knocking the socks off of the Democrats and don’t remember being transported to another planet since then. Now, all of a sudden, the Democrats want to work with the Republicans. Well, I would like to respond to that.
Notice to all Democratic Politicians, the ones who called us domestic terrorist for believing and standing up for the American Flag and the U.S. Constitution, who called members of the Tea Party terrorist or tea baggers, who sent the IRS knocking at our doors, who called us racist for the past 6 years because we didn’t agree the Community Organizer in Chief, the Narcissist in Chief.
You know who you are. You are the same ones who refused to listen to The People when we said we didn’t want obamacare. Remember Nancy?
and lets not forget about this one…..
I remember, oh man do I remember and I will make it very simple for you to understand………
We the People are not your lap dogs, we are not your door mats for you to walk on. We are the ones that keep this Country moving, day and night and we are the ones who pay your salary…………….REMEMBER? You work for US, not the other way around.
WE VOTED and Socialism is not the Answer, in fact SOCIALISM SUCKS. We are America, we have a Constitution and a Bill of Rights, it has worked for over 200 years, it doesn’t need to be changed and if you don’t like it, I’ll help you pack.
GOD BLESS AMERICA and GOD SAVE THE REPUBLIC.
I am 1 Dragon and this is my opinion.
Last night, the talking points were already under way from Democrats on how now we must all work together, the time for partisanship is past.
No no, my dear Democrats. Given this election is a very specific and direct rejection of the policies that you and President Obama have espoused(in his own words), now is the time to work nonstop and eliminate those same policies in accordance with the will of the people.
Republicans, Conservatives. Please do remember as you are urged to act in a ‘bipartisan way’, what you have been called.
Here’s a list, compiled by Louisiana Mom since 2009, of names used for Republicans and Conservatives by Democrats and media:
Enemy, paranoid, greedy, Bible-thumping, gun-toting, fear-mongering, racist, sexist, bigot, birther, redneck, homophobic, xenophobic, global-warming denialists, anti-science, Neanderthal, barbarian, terrorist, hobbits, member of the Flat Earth Society, Nazi, bully, Yosemite Sam hillbilly, beer-toting, pot belly, church going, small-minded, whack-job, Evangelical, gun nuts, wing nut, knuckle-dragger, clueless, Teabaggers, narrow-minded, evil, redneck freaks, judgmental, backwards, sick, anti-intellectualist, slut-shaming, slimebuckets, forced-birther, neocons, Zionist, neo-Confederate, wild nasty hard-right fringe, extremist, sewer rats, wacko birds, bitter clingers, misogynist, you suck, Obamaphobic, chirper, white nativist, crazies, creepy azz cracka, unpatriotic, white grievance, dumb, cracker, white devils, rabid, squealing political pigs, anarchist, fanatics, extortionists, lemmings, gangsters, murderers, banana republicans, fakers, ideological crusader, Cruzites, anti-government idealoges, fraud, Taliban, arsonist, suicide bombers, suicidal lemmings, spoiled children, hostage takers, overlords, Jihadist, blowhard, religious fanatic, freedom fiend, kidnappers, Jesus freaks, dangerous, troglodyte, from the Planet of the Apes, resurrection of the Confederacy, lemmings with suicide vests, anarchy gang, idiots, wife abusers, frightened white people, right-wing loonies, tea-hadist, tea-tards, segregationist, freaking retarded, morally disgusting, Confederate flag-waving, breeders, Robert E.

Republicans, remember you were not elected to be ‘bipartisan’, you were elected to serve the people. Do not bend over and allow yourselves to be kicked again.
Do your duty!
First they convince you that the worst thing in the world is to be a “racist.” Then they tell you that wanting to defend your own civilization is racist. Then they obliterate your civilization, presumably so as to replace it with their depraved notion of utopia.
The process is happening everywhere you look, but is particularly prominent at the site of Bill Moyers, who is best known for his many years of spewing ultra-left propaganda on our dime at PBS. There you will find a screed by Ian Haney Lopez, a law professor at U.C. Berkeley, who proclaims that even wanting to defend the border from infiltration by Islamic State terrorists is a thought crime because it is racist:
I knew this day was coming and have even written about it in past years’ columns. It was a fait accompli when Barack Hussein Obama entered what was once our White House and only a matter of time until he implemented this Orwellian portion of his program.
We are already being called racists if we object to having our country invaded by foreign entities; many of whom are diseased, many gang-banger murderers including the infamous MS-13 Latin gang and Islamist terrorists. So, soon the inevitable devolution into the following will be a reality: If you object to your own death at the hands of the illegals’ diseases, you are a racist…and probably white.
This is the insanity to which we-the-people are being subjected at the hands of a group of leftist globalist elites now running the planet. Think not? Well, consider what has been happening in the United States of America. Obama and his syndicate advisors have now created a wide open border between Mexico and the USA. People from virtually all countries–including Islamist terrorists–around the world are entering America with no one stopping them.
If this Judge is anything like Obama, the alternative title to this story should be, Border Fence is Racist. Now that sounds like an Obama supporter. Anything negative about Obama or any of his ideas is racist. I wonder if it will still be racist when a group of terrorist cross our Southern Border and start blowing things up? Hey, somebody has to ask. 1 Dragon
A Homeland Security initiative to put fencing along the U.S.-Mexico border could discriminate against minorities, according to an Obama-appointed federal judge who’s ruled that the congressionally-approved project may have a “disparate impact on lower-income minority communities.”
This of course means that protecting the porous—and increasingly violent—southern border is politically incorrect. At least that’s what the public college professor at the center of the case is working to prove and this month she got help from a sympathetic federal judge. Denise Gilman, a clinical professor at the taxpayer-funded University of Texas-Austin, is researching the “human rights impact” of erecting a barrier to protect the U.S. from terrorists, illegal immigrants, drug traffickers and other serious threats.
The list of beliefs, words and/or actions that can get you labeled as a “racist” by the political left in America seems to grow with each passing year. If you disagree with the current presidential administration’s policies and the overall direction it’s leading our nation, then you’re a racist. If you don’t think preferential treatment should be given to individuals based solely on the color of their skin, you’re a racist. Should you believe in T.E.A. Party principles of limited government and fiscal responsibility, you’re a racist. Heaven forbid you’ve ever actually attended a T.E.A. Party meeting or event, then you’re definitely a racist.
It now appears there’s yet a new way to earn one’s way onto the “You’re just a racist” guest list. If you’re willing to take a stand and say that jihadists who practice a form of Islam that is hell-bent on killing are jihadists who practice a form of Islam that is hell-bent on killing, you’re a racist.
The Obama administration and the political left in America are hell-bent themselves. Hell-bent on political correctness. And it’s making us all more vulnerable. This refusal to call Islamic terrorism what it is, is beyond irresponsible. This administration, which has taken such steps as ending our Space Shuttle program and re-commissioning the National Aeronautics and Space Administration to engage in outreach to Muslim nations of the world, conferring constitutional rights and privileges to non-U.S.-citizen terror suspects, and stripping language such as “terrorist” and “jihad” from military documents and training materials, either simply doesn’t understand or refuses to publicly admit what we all know to be true.
The fact is, there are people on this planet who believe the world is inhabited by infidels, and that they are called by their god Allah and his prophet Mohammed to destroy the infidels. This may be an over-simplified summation, but the elements of truth are known to everyone in America.
Yet there are those who believe the true root issue is not jihad but rather understanding and mutual respect. These people naively think that if we just treat these jihadists well, understand them and encourage them to understand us, acknowledge the contributions of Muslims to human culture and science, that then they’ll stop blowing people up. Frighteningly enough, people who believe this are now running our country and are responsible for protecting us. Sadly, with the cooperation of a complicit media, they have successfully carried out a PR campaign that says if you do not agree with their world view it is because you are a frightened bigot. You are so hateful of people with darker skin than your own that you are not rational in your assessments of the world in which we live.
This posturing is now more dangerous than ever before. The most recent acts of Islamist terror in the USA beg the question: “Is the face of domestic terror threats in the United States changing?” It appears that it is, and the U.S. counter-terrorism efforts, intelligence and police agencies charged with keeping us all safe had better be changing with it. The days of massive scale operations like 9/11 are likely gone. Having lost the element of surprise, the larger, more powerful combatant has been awakened and taken measures to protect itself. Hence the Islamists have adopted an approach employed in much of the rest of the world.
In boxing and combat sports there is a technique known as “stick-and-move.” It’s employed when confronting a larger, more powerful opponent. The idea is to get in a small shot then get out, stay away, look for an opening to land another, and sooner or later wear the behemoth down. In isolation each individual blow does not inflict a significant amount of damage, it’s the cumulative effect that begins to fatigue the opponent. In this scenario the USA is the behemoth, Islamic terrorism the smaller combatant.
We in America have never seen this nor really been forced to think about it. Citizens in much of Eastern Europe and nations of the Middle East live in an almost constant state of awareness over when and where the next attack may be lurking. These smaller scale attacks, most often carried out with small munitions and/or improvised explosive devices, can come from anywhere. They typically are carried out in a very public place and kill a relatively small number of people, sometimes just one or two, and maim a dozen or so.
This is clearly the tactic that Islam is pivoting to in the USA. From the Ft. Hood shootings to the Boston Marathon murders earlier this year, smaller attacks, smaller numbers killed, carried out by one or two individuals. Not the massive, global-scale, 9/11 type attacks that require coordination across oceans, dozens and dozens of people involved, complex communications networks and years of architecture.
In certain cities and nations of the world (think Beirut, Jerusalem, etc.) random, small-ish terror attacks are a fact of life. Going to the market, getting on a city bus or any number of activities you and I take for granted are a leap of faith and could well be the last thing you ever do. The killers are in many cases homegrown, they look like everyone, blend in with everything and you never really know what’s in the backpack that young man is wearing.
Yes, I typed “young man.” Why? Because there is a general description that all of these terrorists fit. They are males, generally between the 20 and 40 years of age, with dark hair, dark eyes, and middle-eastern/Arab features and names. But. If you point this simple fact out, you’re a racist.
Exactly how those responsible for protecting us from this new reality of terrorism in the United States plan to do so is somewhat unclear. By some estimates there are as many as 15,000 people are in America from nations where Islam is the predominant faith on visas to attend college, but who never showed up for classes. They simply got here then dropped off the grid. Many of these “students” fit the general physical description of the 19 hijackers who carried out the 9/11 attacks. Where are these people and what are they doing? Is this a question that can even be asked? Is it time to take a more careful look at the student visa program and begin placing more tight restrictions on it? Or does doing so make you a racist?
It’s a common sense question that conservatives on Capitol Hill probably will not ask. Why? For fear that the R-word be used against them in the next campaign season and the racial divide in this nation grow even deeper, possibly costing them a job. The business of labeling racists is very real, very effective, and growing by the moment. And continuing to do so could ultimately result in the cities of America being much like cities of other nations — giant paranoia zones where we’re on count down to the next attack. All because of the progressive left’s insistence on blind political correctness.

A Kentucky man has sparked a public outcry after he put up a statue of President Barack Obama eating watermelon. His critics say the display is blatantly racist.
When asked why he chose to depict Obama, the nation’s first black president, eating watermelon, Danny Hafley said he “might get hungry standing out here.”
Hafley told LEX18 in Lexington said he is merely exercising his right to free speech and the statue is protected under the First Amendment.
“The way I look at it, it’s freedom of speech,” he said. “I don’t know how other people will take it.”
