OpEd: WOKE, Yet Fast Asleep

 



theodore miraldi.

Let me illuminate a common misconception regarding this entire discussion about White Supremacy, Cancel Culture, and who it affects. The dribble coming from the Left and its Liberal Elites scattered about within our learning Institutions, Media and Entertainment Industry isn't just about people of color. The same elitists are targeting those who lead normal and less than prosperous lives struggling from the weight of those who consider themselves our superiors.

We, the majority of the population are suffering far more than any minority by those who are and may very well be white themselves. A bit of a conundrum by any measurable standards. Those on the top of the food chain whether deserved or not have become very judgmental of the rest. 

This faux egoism is tightly wrapped within selected groups that somehow have gamed and gained control of the Institutions that project cultural norms and behaviors better known as The Woke! For the most part, these Pop Culture proclivities are birthed in our Urban Cities and Metropolitan areas in past years and produced positive change. No longer so!

Whether you like the facts or not, the change in demographics has force-fed the populace a diet of dysfunctional narratives that only apply to specific groups leaving those outside relegated to the Status of The Other. Many of these newfound powerbrokers demand change and acceptance by any means. 

Unfortunately, the newly Woke are anything but aware. So selective in the acceptance of dysfunctions and irrational perspectives that the vast majority of the public have repudiated their true lack of personal and interpersonal social integration. Unwilling to accept common cultural views and seize opportunities with proven results to solidify their outsider status but, alienate the massive community now circling the wagons ready to strike. 

These are unsustainable methods of social control. The January gathering in DC was a shot across the bow. We are seeing a crack in their solidarity because of the rise in violence in areas of the nation which they control politically. 

One can't build a healthy environment on Lies and Mis-Direction. 

It's time for both sides to be shaken by reality. Judging others in their worst moments is a special kind of dishonor that only shames the accuser. Categorizing someone as deplorable is no different than the myriad of stereotypical names associated with the appearance of Bias, Bigotry, and Racism.

Woke refers to a perceived awareness of issues that concern social justice and racial justice. It derives from the African-American Vernacular English expression stay woke. As I have stated in the past and borrow from Plato; 'An unexamined life is not worth living.'

It can only be perceived as hypocritical and shameless that those who raise their fist in defiance of past inequality now using the same mindless methods against others. It might be refreshing to actually see communities who suffer violence and poverty on themselves to find a better way.

Be a part of something better, actions speak louder than empty words...

What Say You?




I’ve lived in a time of much tragedy and joy. I’ve soared through the clouds, and cried in the valley of despair.

I’ve seen armies marching, and illness cured, assassination change the face of policy and politic.

I’ve seen a nation rally to greatness, and bow its head in shame.

I’ve witnessed man’s betrayal of life in his quest to become god, only to start the clock of his own demise.

I’ve seen love like no other and felt its gentle hand and words screaming from mouths that hate man’s subtle hues.

I’ve seen praise for heroes, and praise for foe, and truth and lie intermingle as natural as mother with child.

I’ve seen force brought to its knees by a tear, an encouragement, a helping hand, and traveled the road that led from heaven to hell.

So, what say you of man’s silent courage to triumph over tyranny and moral decay.

For life is built of human tears, some sad, some joyous.

All to behold!

So, what say you?

OpEd: DEMOCRATS Race To The Bottom ... AGAIN!

 




theodore miraldi.


Democrats are in the bag with Division and not Unity. Their newest fig leaf to the minorities is RACIAL EQUITY

I beg someone to explain what the hell that means. 

In the face of a common stupidity that has been force-fed to their minority constituents, anyone in the state of consciousness realizes this to be just another non-sequitur fantasy of the Left's overactive Groupthink mantra. To them, it really doesn't have to mean anything, nor will they ever explain its meaning.

What's highly disturbing are Biden's initial Executive Orders on Transgender and Illegal Alien issues. While the nation is suffering illness and death nearing 500,000 this president's priorities are on bathroom use, men competing against girls
and allowing new caravans and their criminal elements to march into your neighborhoods. Now add to it codifying Roe v. Wade ... the killing of unborn children. 

What could he be thinking? 

This form of eclectic fantasy thinking flies in the face of non-secular reasoning, and policy that seeks positive outcomes.

Who the hell are these people in Washington?

As each new day arises in the Biden presidency we can begin to see a pattern of crippling edicts that have a direct and immediate effect on the well-being of Americans. Reinstituting failures with known adversaries who admittedly call for Death to our way of life. What is so attractive about government control and human abuse do Democrats find so appealing?

The assault Democrats have been pushing for the last 5 years has been a destabilizing force among the most vulnerable Americans, those with families and personal responsibilities. The government has no right to exacerbate the pain. Covid is a Health Crisis, not a National Emergency. 

It is apparent the Draconian effects of Lock-Downs have made things worse. Millions of Americans will be climbing out of the financial abyss while Washington sends taxpayer dollars overseas while demoralizing Middle America once more. This over-reach reeks of Centralized Power and Authoritarianism in the name of Unity. Just ask citizens of China, Cuba and Venezuela, and others if they feel free in their forced Unity!

Biden in less than a week has delivered a deathblow to Americans under the guise of Unity. We've seen this B-Movie before. Its title might read ... 'You Promised UsThe World, and Gave Us Tyranny and eventual Slavery.

They have promised Unity as long as we Assimilate into a Culture and Society of Failure! Welcome to their NWO!

Clinton Hints Trump May Have CALLED Putin DAY Of RIOT at Capitol, Pelosi Wants 9/11 Commission-Type Probe

BAT-SHIT CRAZY!!
...tmiraldi




 Edmund DeMarche

Hillary Clinton, the former secretary of state, spoke with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on her podcast about the riot at the U.S. Capitol earlier this month and hinted that Russian President Vladimir Putin may have been receiving updates about the chaos from President Trump. 

Clinton, who hosts the podcast, "You and Me Both," told Pelosi that she would be interested in obtaining President Trump's phone records to see if he was on the phone with Putin while the Capitol was being breached.

Clinton lost to Trump in 2016 and said it is clear that Trump has a disdain for democracy, but its true depths may never be known. She said the president had "other agendas" while in the White House and hopes that one day it becomes known who exactly the president was "beholden to" and "who pulls his strings."

"I would love to see his phone records to see if he was talking to Putin the day the insurgents invaded our Capitol," she said. She asked Pelosi if she believed the country would benefit from a 9/11-commission-type probe to investigate what exactly led up to the deadly riot.

Pelosi said she is in favor of such a commission and she recalled telling the president that, "With you, Mr. President, all roads lead to Putin."

"I don’t know what Putin has on him politically, financially or personally, but what happened last week was a gift to Putin because Putin wants to undermine democracy in our country and throughout the world," Pelosi said. She said those that took part in the riot were "Putin’s puppets."

DEMS DIDN'T ALWAYS CONDEMN VIOLENCE

"So yes, we should have a 9/11 commission and there is strong support in the Congress to do that," she said.

Representatives from Pelosi and Clinton did not immediately respond to an after-hours email from Fox News.

The suggestion from a former top diplomat that a sitting president could have somehow interacted with a foreign leader during such a trying time in the country's history is remarkable and perhaps is an example of how divided the parties are in Washington. Trump supporters often tie President-elect Joe Biden to China.

Byron York, the Fox News contributor, retweeted a clip of the podcast and wrote, "There was a House investigation. A Senate investigation. A special prosecutor investigation with the full powers of law enforcement. Obsessive media inquiries. None found what Hillary Clinton wanted to find. So she wants another..."

Clinton called the breach an "invasion" while Congress was "doing the work of Democracy" and certifying an election. Earlier this month, she offered her support for impeaching Trump a second time, but claimed that the root problem that led to the riot at the Capitol last week – white supremacy – will still remain. 

She wrote in a Washington Post op-ed that the violent protest "was the tragically predictable result of white-supremacist grievances" that she said were fed by Trump's rhetoric.

"Removing Trump from office is essential, and I believe he should be impeached," Clinton wrote. "Members of Congress who joined him in subverting our democracy should resign, and those who conspired with the domestic terrorists should be expelled immediately. But that alone won’t remove white supremacy and extremism from America."

All Men are RIGHTEOUS? What are Communists/Socialists?

Communism failed. What about the ideal of global humanity? | Aeon ...


theodore  M I R A L D I.


There are some that may think this concept to be ill-conceived, yet how will history judge America's use of an Atomic Weapon on Hiroshima and Nagasaki? We live in a world where men and nations are given the power to eliminate their enemies with the use of technology in War and in Peace. Unfortunately, this creative/destruction paradigm is measured in the loss of life, and must always be seen as its most egregious outcome.

In my opinion, Covid-19 was a deliberate act against the West. Being driven into a financial disaster by changing economic policies, China saw the writing on the wall. Losing the power of the dollar has crippled their ability to complete what they have been boldly stating for decades ... surpassing the United State in Military, Economic, and Political Power around the world.

For reasons beyond logic, we have alloyed a Communist Nation bent of destroying our way of life and replacing it with a Utopian Nightmare. And don't blame China! We no longer resemble the nation that has fought for Liberty and Individual Rights. We now worship gilded Idols, not unlike the Israelites did at Mt. Sinai. This offense in the face of God lasted for 40 years of hardship. How long will humankind suffer?

The Chinese have gotten smarter as we dumb down our children and crush their future with Debt, Drugs, and Fear.

In Truth, the antagonists always get flushed out and suffer the consequences of the Evil they promote. It's as if free people are embedded with a notion of fairness and openness that ultimately through hardship prevails. This should make one wonder why some want to control the knowledge. It's what Communists and Socialists have done now for well over 100 years since Marx and Engles penned the Communist Manifest in 1848. 

It's perplexing as to why this failed paradigm continues to exist. The cost has been in the hundreds of millions and its radical sense of false liberty has doomed hundreds of millions of unborn children as well. In its 172 years, its evils have spanned the world leaving only death and hardship. 

If there is anyone left that may think China's form of Communism is new and improved, think again and count the friends, neighbors, and loved ones lost to another Virus created and spread by Communist China. 

China can afford to lose hundreds of millions of its people and still stage a million-man army. This is their luxury, not so for the West. 

There is a logic in these assumptions as history proved in WW2. No-one believed Japan would be so bold and bomb Pearl Harbor. In contrast, we would still be seeing the North and South Towers of the World Trade Center but for our foolish beliefs that all men and nations are righteous.
