Issa Calls for Hearing on White Supremacy
I don’t know about anyone else, but I am sick and tired, tired and sick, of hearing the banter regarding “alt-right, white supremacy, white nationalist, racists, bigots” by media for those who support keeping Confederate monuments, memorials, statues and tributes.
I am sick and tired of those who think or believe racism, bigotry, race supremacy, and nationalism are crimes.
While racism, bigotry and race supremacy are deplorable, these ideas and beliefs are moral issues, not criminal ones.
Nationalism, on the other hand, is the support of the Constitution, the equality of law, upholding of the law, and support of individual God-given rights.
One can be a nationalist and be of any race.
t is the farthest thing from “white supremacy” as can be and certainly is not criminal.
This has gotten so out of hand that Darrell Issa (R-CA) called for the House Judiciary Committee to initiate hearings on white supremacy.
According to the Washington Examiner:
“As the nation grieves and heals from the scenes of this past weekend, we have a duty to more fully understand what led to these terrible events and the persistence of these hateful, extremist ideologies,” Issa wrote to House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va.
He noted the House Homeland Security Committee has a hearing scheduled for Sept. 12, and said Judiciary should also examine the issue.
“As members of the committee of jurisdiction on issues related to civil rights and democracy, we too have a unique duty to examine the impact recent displays of hatred from white supremacist groups have on civil rights in America,” he wrote. “Therefore, I write today to call for the full committee to hold a hearing on this topic when we return in September.”
“While Congress cannot legislate respect, decency, or acceptance of others, we have an obligation to use our platform to lead our country forward on these matters,” Issa added.
Not to be sarcastic, but, isn’t that just special.
When Black Lives Matter went around protesting, committing crimes of looting, vandalism, and assault, and engaging in shooting law enforcement officers, there was not one call for a hearing on this group or any off-shoot of it.
Black supremacists spouting hateful rhetoric were “excused” while local governments allowed these individuals to decimate businesses — many black owned, destroy private property, and disrupt society by blocking roads, disturbing restauranteurs and patrons, and basically relegating much of the public to their homes.
All of this was over a justified police officer shooting of a black criminal thug.
If this wasn’t bad enough, the laissez faire attitude of both chambers of Congress continued with the “turning a blind eye” to numerous crimes committed against Trump supporters during the election cycle.
Individuals who were exercising their rights to free speech and peaceable assembly were given no quarter by anti-Trumpers, Democrats and Black Lives Matter.
Law enforcement officers stood by while violent assaults against Trump rally attendees were committed.
Not one call came for a House Judicial Committee hearing on these crimes.
Not one call came for a House Judicial Committee hearing over Hillary Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Sobarkah calling for continued violence against those who supported Trump.
And, it continued right up through the inauguration and afterward.
Yet, both chambers of Congress ignored it. In fact, many in both chambers of Congress stood with the violent – and still do.
What is even more ridiculous is that no one in either chamber of Congress, the lamestream enemedia, or other television news personalities can even bring themselves to admit this entire division along every demographic was sliced open, fomented, and supported by Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Sobarkah, his ilk, Democrats, some Republicans, communists, socialists, and anti-freedom groups such as the Southern Poverty Law Center and the American Civil Liberties Union.
Being white under the previous administration was considered almost criminal with every individual who is white being accused of “supremacy” and “white privilege.”
No one in government dared criticize the “boy king” for fear of being called a racist, bigot or supremacist.
And, let’s not forget the support the previous administration gave to Islamic terrorist groups, the Muslim Brotherhood, and the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) to further beat American nationalists over the head to attempt to subjugate them to the religion of pieces.
Now, leftist liberal progressive supremacists have become so emboldened they have intimidated government – state, local, and federal – into agreeing to remove Confederate memorials, monuments, statues and tributes that have been a reminder of a portion of US history.
It isn’t stopping there either.
Some groups are calling for the removal of monuments, statues, memorials and tributes to the founding fathers over the issue of slavery.
Why is there not a House Judicial Committee hearing being called on “antifa” or Black Lives Matter or black supremacy?
What about their role in suppressing civil rights? Civil rights pertain to all individuals regardless of color, sex, sexual orientation, religion, etc.
Here’s the kicker; the First Amendment protects all speech, including that which is found offensive, distasteful, and unpopular.
There is no crime in spouting racist, bigoted, supremacist or offensive speech.
The crime comes in when individuals who espouse these opinions and beliefs commit vandalism, assault, looting, trespassing, and violence in any form or those who do not like that speech engaging in crimes against the speaker.
The First Amendment does not protect protests that are violent and riotous under the tenet of recognizing and guaranteeing the right to peaceful assembly. The operative word is “peaceful.” Law enforcement has the duty to arrest violators of the law.
Each individual is responsible for his or her own actions.
While one may find another’s speech offensive, deplorable and unpopular, it does not give one the right to commit a crime against that individual.
And, while this may be unpopular, no one has even touched on the role that blacks and other groups have had in reviving “white supremacist” ideology in some of the population.
BLM, the LGBTQ multiple alphabet extension groups, illegal alien invaders, and other groups have shoved their ideology down the throats of the American public without relent and with the support of all levels of government.
Is it any wonder a section of the population would feel disenfranchised?
Some, rightly or wrongly, believe this is a war against the white population in this republic.
Let’s face facts here.
Obama, BLM, and all the other groups, including both chambers of Congress, have done more to revive the “white supremacist” ideology, as well as “black supremacy,” to come out of the shadows than any KKK organization ever could.
So, one could say that government fomented both groups to create discord, engage in violence, and provide a reason to hold hearings to initiate some intervention through law or otherwise to infringe further on the rights of the people.
No one should need to wonder why local law enforcement officers refuse to enforce the peace, arrest lawbreakers or keep opposing groups separate. It is ordered by government to “stand down.”
And, all of this is being used for nefarious purposes by government.
The problem that now exists is this “white supremacist” label is being applied by the lamestream enemedia, both chambers of Congress, and many state and local governments to those who support the Constitution, identify as conservative, have a nationalist point of view, support keeping all US history and its statues and symbols intact, and are white.
Those who advocate for keeping all history are dubbed “Nazis” and “neo-Nazis;” but, who are the real “Nazis” and “neo-Nazis?” It is those who seek to destroy history and remake it to their liking.
Just as Hitler staged events to stir the German people into accepting and adopting hatred for the Jewish people, supporting the invasion of Poland, and engaging in war against multiple nations, these clashes are being organized in a manner to generate incidences of violence and crime to justify government to clamp down further on the American public.
When the lamestream enemedia and others pointed to “white supremacy” as rearing its head in Charlottesville as the perpetrators of violence; even though counter protestors started the incident and the police almost encouraged conflict, members of the central government latched on to this narrative rather quickly.
This has now led to one member of Congress calling for a judicial committee hearing on the “white supremacy” problem while ignoring the “supremacy” problem on the opposing side.
As a reminder, when government gets involved in anything, one can bet individual rights, liberties and freedoms will be infringed. Moreover, the infringement will be applied unequally and it will also affect those individuals who have not been involved in these “conflicts” and who do not possess these ideologies.
In other words, everyone loses except those in government and those groups protected by government.
