In This Corner

By Gerry Garrison

 

A fter many weeks, I am back…and with a vengeance. I am sorry it took me so long to finally get a column out. Family has kept me busy.

So why the subject of racism in America?  I am so tired of the left accusing those of us, who don’t agree with them, or President Obama’s policies, or any number of subjects, as racist. This has gotten to be so old, it is ridiculous.  It is time to set get the story straight.

There are several issues that brought it to light who the true racists are out there, and it those who have been since before the Civil Rights Act, which was signed into law during the Johnson Administration, in 1964. 

For those who don’t remember or are too young to know what this law is, I will enlighten you.  This law forbids major forms of discrimination against blacks and women, which included racial segregation, allowed for equality in voter registration, in schools, at the work place and any public accommodation.  This was later expanded to all minorities.

But I digress.  Being a history buff, I often get off track as to what I want to write about.  Back on task.

In last few days, a huge controversy over the death penalty.  This was raised by the anti-death penalty crowd because they believed an innocent man was going to die for something he didn’t do. That could not be further from the truth.

Let’s the facts straight before I go on, so you, my readers, know the whole truth, instead of what the press wants you to read.  First of all, it’s nearly impossible to receive a death sentence these days.  That is unless you do something like shoot a cop in front of dozens of witnesses in a Burger King parking lot, after shooting at a passing car while exiting a party a few hours earlier

That's what Troy Davis did in August 1989. After a two-week trial with 34 witnesses for the state and six witnesses for the defense, the jury of seven blacks and five whites took less than two hours to convict Davis of Officer Mark MacPhail's murder. Two days later, the same jury sentenced
Davis to death.

For 22 years,
Davis’ lawyers put this country through appeal after appeal. while tax payers paid for his room and board,  Finally this week, the Supreme Court denied his last ditch effort and. his sentence was finally administered this week, and justice was served.

Many conservative writers, talk show hosts and journalists applauded this verdict and death sentence as justice served for this criminal and cop killer.  One of them, Michelle Malkin, an Asian-American columnist was one of those who applauded this victory of justice served. 

What was the reaction? Alex Baldwin went on Tweeter.com and blasted Michelle, asking all his fans to “…go all Town Hall on the supreme thinker @michellemalkin.  A world class, crypto fascist hater!”

T weet after tweet we sent by fans of Alex Baldwin, calling her a bitch, wishing her dead, calling her a chink and stating, “Hey, Michelle, my foot is going to stay on your neck, you noodle-slurping ho.” Several of them even threatened her life. Many comments were too disgusting for my column.

Believe it or not, I really feel sad for these people.

I’ll take my conservative Filipina-American wife over their, Birkenstock-wearing, Prius-driving, race-baiting, Cosmo-reading, MSNBC-watching, criminal mollycoddling, Obama-courting, election-stealing,  pot-smoking, overbearing women that any of these hobgoblins is married to.

So who are the racists?  This is not the only example of racism by those of the liberal left.  I spoke to a conservative gentleman the other day at the mall, who when he told some young man that he did not vote for Barrack Obama for president, that he was a racist.  When he asked the same young, white man why he voted for Obama, he was told because Obama is black.  Who is the racist here?

I didn’t vote for Obama either.  But it had nothing to do with the color of his skin.  It was because I didn’t agree with his liberal, socialist, anti-American rhetoric.  Does that make me a racist? To those who know me, they would call anyone who says that a liar.

Do you know that the Republicans, in the late 50’s, tried to pass a form of the civil rights act?  Do you know who opposed that from even coming to the floor in 1954?  That would be Senate Majority Leader, Lyndon Johnson.  The only reason he supported the Civil Rights Act in 1964, because he saw the need of the black vote if he was ever going to run for a second term. 

If you bother to pay attention to all that has happened, when it comes to liberals supporting blacks, it has been to “keep them in their place.”  They pretend to want to help them, using welfare and similar programs, to assist them to get out of poverty.

Instead, their policies have broken up the foundation of family for which they had for hundreds of years prior to the government getting involved in their lives.  Welfare prevented married women with children from getting welfare assistance.  The more children they had, the more the government paid them. Just as long as they weren’t married.

The family structure was completely destroyed.  Blacks and other minorities had more children out of wedlock than any other group of people.  Many of these children, without a father figure, ended up in gangs, selling drugs or becoming drug addicts themselves.

I could go on and on, my readers.  All any of you have to do is a little bit of research, and you will find that I may be right on this issue.  But that is up to you.  You decide who the racist is and who is not.

Anyway, what do I know?  Just sayin’ … # # #

Life is short. Forgive quickly. Kiss slowly. Love truly. Laugh uncontrollably, and never regret anything that made you smile.
