Greetings from Chapel Hill, NC! I am here at the home of my former Brigade Commander at Ft. Bragg, Col. Denny R. Lewis, and his wife, Pam. It is great to be here and have a little mini-reunion with Col. Lewis, a man I wrote about in my first book, Guardian of the Republic.
I am here to address the Chatham County GOP Reagan Dinner this evening. I am truly and deeply honored to be asked to speak across the nation about Constitutional Conservatism and what we must do to restore our Republic, its principles and values. We are not there yet, but one thing aiding us in our quest is that our ideological adversaries no longer hide who they are . . . nor their delusional intent for our America.
If you are still unaware of who these people are, well, this past week many of them gathered in an assembled mass of stuck on stupid. Therefore, this week’s esteemed Old School Patriot “Stuck on Stupid Saturday” recognition goes not to a single individual, no, not to two or three, but to a collective grouping of a special kind of stupid.
They all gathered at Al Sharpton’s National Action Network (NAN) conference this past week. Yes, the King of Stupid hosted the clown car of candidates for the Democrat (socialist) Party presidential nomination. There they were all gathered in their splendor, ranting about the most insidious and absurd things, and receiving the fawning adoration of what can only be referred to as Lenin’s “useful idiots.” At a time when the unemployment rate for blacks continues to drop, and wages rise, the message from these charlatans — led by the premier charlatan — was one of victimization and, yes, a slave mentality.
Each of these chuckleheads had the microphone shoved into their face by the ultimate race hustler, Al Sharpton, demanding an answer as to their support on the issue of reparations. Their response told us all we need to know about who they are and what they represent. Consider the abject stupidity of the presidential candidates of the Democrat (socialist) Party saying that reparations for slavery is an important issue. Their damn party created the mess in the first place!
The American Democrat Party has been nothing but a hindrance — no, an enemy — to the black community. It is a party that has stood for slavery, created the Ku Klux Klan, Jim Crow laws (how stupid of Cory Booker to talk about a new age of Jim Crow), poll taxes, literacy tests, Black Codes, segregation, and lynching. If anyone should be paying restitution to the American black community, it is the political party of the jackass symbol. The Great Society programs of Lyndon Johnson destroyed the traditional two-parent black family. The polices, vision, of a white supremacist, racist, and Klan orator, Margaret Sanger, live on in the organization she founded, Planned Parenthood, which has over 70 percent of their clinics in minority, black, communities.
And the cherry on top of this very disconcerting sundae was the insidious pandering of one Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who, like Hillary Clinton, has somehow found a southern accent. But what was even more apparent was the deranged attempt of pandering to the audience. I suppose Ocasio-Cortez also carries a bottle of hot sauce in her purse?
If you have not seen the display of stupid from these leftist presidential candidates you should. Watching their inane stupidity is the best advertisement as to why none of them should ever be President of these United States of America. Ms. Ocasio-Cortez had best learn this maxim, “familiarity breeds contempt.” It has just been three months in her tenure as a new member of our US House of Representatives and her incessant, self-promoting, exposure will bring the advance her own demise.
Then again, what sustains this collection of stuck on stupid individuals? Yes, you guessed correctly, an audience of shallow, seemingly mindless lemmings, who lack the personal resolve to pursue their happiness, but believe this cast of clowns can guarantee it.
Let me reiterate: I find it condescending and offensive that these progressive socialist elitists, black, white, Hispanic, believe that they need to give me a monetary handout, a participation trophy for something that I did not participate in, nor did any of my immediate family. I reject the notion of being a part of the Democrat (socialist) Party’s 21st-century economic plantation. I refuse to have the present day overseers like Al Sharpton believe that they speak for me. I am a free man, a proud American black man. I will not have these people believe that they can economically enslave, denigrate, disparage, or demean me with their diabolical schemes, what they call reparations.
Therefore, this week’s “Stuck on Stupid Saturday” recognition goes out to all the 2020 Democrat (socialist) Party presidential candidates who spoke at Al Sharpton’s National Action Network conference, along with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for her pitiful, disrespectful and pandering attempt to fake a “black” southern accent. However, honorable mention for this week’s “Stuck on Stupid Saturday” Award goes to all of those at the NAN conference who clapped and cheered on this stupidity.
