Racism in America? Prove it!

The leftist Democrat tactic of silencing free speech by blocking speakers, a cancel culture in the workplace and social media banning is a detriment to our republic. Some cancellations stem from a fallacy of systemic racism. We do not live in a racist society. Racism is defined as an institutionalized system where a race of […]

Wokeism – A New Religion

Anyone who enters into a moral argument does so at the risk of being labeled a virtue signaler. I make no claim of virtue, nor am I an ethicist or Biblical Apologist. Most of my thoughts today are not my own but, come from the teachings of Fr. James V. Schull S. J. and Pope […]

Racism Is A Public Health Crisis

Very recently there has been a massive push towards creating the myth, or what is really a theory without any scientific proof, that racism is a public health crisis, and if not already in your city or county, may be coming to your local government soon with a resolution to adopt it. It is Critical […]

President Donald Trump has condemned racism, white supremacy, bigotry, sexism, “and all and any forms of hatred” more than any other President in history. And anyone who desires can prove it. Like Abraham Lincoln and unlike most modern day politicians President Trump renounced all forms of hatred before he ever entered into politics. Unlike Lincoln, […]

Democrat Party – Still the Party of Racism

Systemic Racism is Very Real – But It Is Not What the Left Says It Is The Democrat party did not suddenly metamorphize from being the party of racists to a party of black salvation. They simply changed their tactics. The Democrat party was the party of slavery. When that failed it became the party […]

Not Woke

Here’s what Black Lives Matter explicitly says about itself on its own website: “We do the work required to dismantle cisgender privilege. We build a space that is free from sexism, misogyny, and environments in which men are centered. We dismantle patriarchal practice, we disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure, we foster a queer-affirming network […]

Now is The Time to Make a Stand

For a very brief moment in our country’s history, we were united. Republicans, Democrats, Liberals, Conservatives, Blacks, and Whites. All were disgusted by the video showing a psychopathic cop murdering a handcuffed suspect while three other cops watched. The murder of George Floyd was soon politicized by groups that had little interest in national unity. […]

No Bitter Angry Agenda

‘Just an Honorable Black Man’s View’ I believe that there is racism in our country and in all the world. There always has been. Each generation must vow to suppress and defeat it, but as long as there are men and women walking the face of the earth there will be sin. How sin and […]

Linguistic Terrorism

My letter to the editor, as submitted to Spokesman-Review: In modern American politics, the word “racist” and its synonyms are often used in the same way “communist” was in the 1950s: to smear and destroy political opponents. Last week, we saw it play out in Spokane County. The word strikes fear in the hearts of […]
