#1 And Antifa would reject me because I think people who attack their fellow citizens are despicable and their theories of power and wealth are wrong and based on the crazy theories of Marx, the most overrated dead white man ever.  And because I’m tired of their trying to impose their ignorance and cultish beliefs on the rest of us.

Sarah Hoyt, a voice of wisdom amongst the barbarians.

#2 It's a matter of perspective, Mr Citizen.

#3 I like Sarah. I agree with a lot that she says, and she's a good writer.
She does seem to to be safety-wired to the 'Rant' position, though.

#4 G(r)om, I suppose it is a matter of perspective. I have not read much of her writings; I was reacting to what I posted. I'm a bit tired of those who impose their ignorance and cultish beliefs on the rest of us. These mobs are not about free speech and individual rights. They would rob the rest of us of our freedoms in a New York minute.

#5 John, all I meant by this is that: having grown in different culture, and being a natural born odd & a scholar, she has a different angle of view. To take one example - most Americans, even most conservatives, behave as if slavery/discrimination is something unique to USA. Now, I can't speak for Hoyt - but, I personally, believe that "African-Americans" have no idea what real suffering is.

#6 A lot of them do, but because their primary dominant culture consists of torturing each other and blaming whitey for the results, they never actually get around to doing anything to change the situation.

The whole statue controversy is an extension of this; it's something to soak up the energy and let the Mitch Landrieus of the world pretend they're actually helping black people instead of f___ing them over.

#7 Ironically, they're fighting for a political system that is f'ing them over, just like the confederate soldiers of a century and a half ago.

Which brings on a question - how many African-Americans are for Confederate statues removal?

#9 Now, I can't speak for Hoyt - but, I personally, believe that "African-Americans" have no idea what real suffering is.

I didn't mean to imply offense or to take offense.

Today we all have it exceptionally good in this country despite attempts by the left to create victim groups. I don't think there is much suffering in this country by African-Americans or anyone. There may have been suffering and deprivation in the past but not much today. I think there are people who often make bad choices that make future life more difficult. And sometimes things just happen and we have to dig ourselves out. There is opportunity here those who want to work. You try something and sometimes you fail. You learn from past history and then you try something else. But yes, I don't think African-Americans today have any idea about real suffering.

#10 Put a Serb and a Croat in the same room and see what happens....but that's o.k...must be their whiteness.

#11 Which brings on a question - how many African-Americans are for Confederate statues removal?

I don't know. But for additional relevant information, I'd suggest reading the following; I'm going to chance copying this over rather than copying all the links...

https://news.google.com/news/search/section/q/new%20orleans%20pumps/new%20orleans%20pumps?hl=en&ned=us

tl;dr: After spending probably over a hundred billion dollars spent rebuilding New Orleans, it's still an accident waiting to happen.

#12 how many African-Americans are for Confederate statues removal?

I saw a poll quoted that said 44% of African-Amreicans think they should be left alone -- I'm afraid I don't have the details. The push for this is coming from white Progressives white knighting the issue.

#13 Amreicans

Americans. For some reason I am having a dreadful time catching that typo at the moment. :-(

#14 DooDaaMan, once upon a time there was a holding 'prison' of sorts at Gitmo (long before they started storing Muslims there), filled with most Carribean types who had been caught 'doin off', as they say. The two largest populations were Dominicans and Puerto Ricans.
Some helpful soul decided that a sports program would help to calm things and keep people occupied. So they formed baseball teams.
The riot that ensued after the Doms beat the PR's in the final game caused the USMC garrison (Gitmo, remember) to call in backup troops from as far away as LeJune.
After that, it was decided that soccer would be better. No bats and all.
