Ms. Thompson is a copy editor by trade currently residing in Tennessee. She formerly wrote for the Conservative Forum of Silicon Valley California Newsletter and the online conservative blog ChronWatch, also out of California.
She grew up in Southeast Texas during the waning years of Jim Crow-era legalized segregation, and she concludes that race relations in America will never improve, nor will we ever elevate our culture, as long as there are victims to be pandered to and villains to be vilified. America is better served without victims or villains.
If any Americans think that the Obama Treasury Department’s decision to change the face of paper money has anything to do with good intentions, they are sadly mistaken. This move is another ploy by Barack Obama and his cadre of sycophants, behaving badly, to provoke divisiveness throughout the populace.
Under whatever guise Obama is cloaking this despicable move, he has delivered another blow to the American people, especially white people. Another in-your-face to all who hold this nation’s founding and history dear. Gains we may have made in race and gender relations in this country, by design, are being set back decades. There must be fifty ways (a la Paul Simon) to honor women of the civil rights and suffrage movements without spitting in the face of America’s heritage.
Classic liberal Greta Van Susteren, on her Fox News show, called the plan to remove Andrew Jackson from the twenty dollar bill and replace him with Harriet Tubman “stupid.” I will venture to say it was much more sinister than stupid, but I’m pleased that even a liberal mind sees through Obama’s machinations on this one.
Van Susteren offered, reasonably, that if the goal is to honor Harriet Tubman and the honor has to be with a monetary bill, why not create a bill specifically for her? A 25 dollar bill is Van Susteren’s suggestion. I read that Dr. Ben Carson, former 2016 presidential candidate, suggested a two dollar bill for Ms. Tubman. He could also see through Obama’s machinations.
Harriet Tubman’s work was indeed for liberty, but liberty for only black people. The women’s suffrage movement was for only women. Past American presidents served for the good of the whole country. Neither service should cancel out the other, as Obama and his Treasury drones have so insidiously proposed.
This man Barack Obama could not sink lower in my estimation. He is like a cancer eating away at the soul of the nation.
I hope it is not lost on anyone that Andrew Jackson was from Tennessee, a state that chose not to kowtow to Obama’s half-blackness in his election bids of both 2008 and 2012. My “no” votes were included in that mix. On his second run, he received even less support from Tennesseans. His resentment of Andrew Jackson probably runs deep and if nothing else, Obama is a vindictive creature.
The plan to place on the backs of the five and ten dollar bills only women involved with issues of racism and gender inequality in America’s history is similarly pernicious. It’s intention is solely to keep alive the specter of a shameful past and to engender discord and chaos among citizens. Only evil minds work this way.
Animus and mistrust between the races, and men and women, had been resolving itself over the years, but Obama’s regime has purposely halted that healing process. He and his administration have ripped open wounds and rubbed salt into them. All under the safety net of his “blackness.”
The Obama administration knows that it has a limited time to wreak as much havoc on the nation as it can before it is assigned to the ash bin of history, where it belongs. The question becomes can the nation avoid a literal insurrection before the miscreants are officially removed?
I think Obama and his puppet masters have been angling for some time now to provoke just such an insurrection – an actual military or militia-styled attempt to take down his corrupt regime. Such a move would give him an excuse to turn military forces against the American people.
He has deliberately culled the military of many patriotic, ranking officers and made conditions throughout the corps so anathema to many young patriots who volunteered that they have left the military. He may think he can pit what’s left of the forces against the American people, should there be such an insurrection. Some military personnel will follow his orders, as Commander-in-Chief. Others most assuredly will not, and therein lies the chance he would have to take. He just might be insane enough to take that chance.
My observation of the conditions in the nation is that we are at the point of violent disruption, and such a turn of events would be detrimental to us all. But Donald Trump’s entry onto the political scene has rekindled a fire in many otherwise disillusioned citizens. There seems to be a sense that maybe a political way out is still viable. What else, one could ask, could be responsible for so many otherwise politically disengaged people suddenly entering the process and voting for this man Trump?
These are no doubt patriots, some of whom were at the point of total despair or worse, thoughts of insurrection. They can now rally behind a non-ethnic, non-female (or gender-confused), patriotic man (of the alpha male mode) to lead America back to its original greatness. Only time will tell if their hope is well-placed.
I say it is a good thing that such a leader has emerged. Let’s hope that Almighty God is also in on the plan.
