Folks:

   "I used to think I was pretty much just a regular person but I was born ‟white,” into a two-parent household, which now labels me as ‟privileged,” racist and responsible for slavery. I am a fiscal and moral conservative, which, by today’s standards, makes me a fascist, because I plan & budget. But I now find out that I am not here because I earned it but because I was ‟advantaged.”
    I am heterosexual, which, according to some folks, now makes me a homophobe. I believe the Lord did not give me the heart, to judge others. I am not a Muslim, which now labels me as an infidel. I believe in the 2nd Amendment, which makes me a threat to the liberals and I get labeled as being part of a militia. I am older than 40, making me a useless person, with outdated ideas and values. I think and I reason and I doubt much of what the ‟mainstream” media tells me, which makes me a ‟right-wing conspiracy nut.”
    I am proud of my heritage and our inclusive American culture, making me a xenophobe. I believe in hard work, fair play and fair compensation, according to each individual’s merits, which, today, makes me a target of socialists and Antifa. I believe our system guarantees freedom of effort - not freedom of outcome or subsidies, which must make me a borderline sociopath.
    I believe in a strong defense and protection of America, for and by all citizens, now making me a militant. I am proud of our flag, what it stands for and the many who died to let it fly; so, I stand and salute, during our National Anthem. So, I must be a racist. I kneel only for The Cross, which makes me racist. I think that all lives matter, which labels me as a racist. I think the riots and destruction of property, around our country, are wrong and are just an excuse to push a political agenda. So, I’m now labeled a racist.
    I support our law enforcement, servicemen and women, which labels me as a racist. I question how fear is being used, to control us, during the COVID-19 pandemic and think the crisis is being used for political gain. So, I’m labeled careless and non-sympathetic. Yet, I know the virus is real.
    Liberals have tried to make me feel bad, about who I am! Based on everything above, some want me to believe I am a bad person; I’m not, I’m a good person, who loves my god, my family and my country.
    God bless America!"

Good news for a change.   Mexico has offered to pay for the wall after all, and Canada is going to build one as well.

To them, we're all racists, regardless of skin color, nationality or anything else, if we don't drink their kool-aid and spout their "wisdom."

I can sum it up even easier. I didn't vote for Obama, I'm rasist. I voted for Trump, I'm rasist.

I'm not even white. I'm Asian American and I get called all sorts of nasty things to for being conservative and pro 2A.

 

A week ago I was called a banana..... Yellow on the outside but white on the inside.

There will be no sides. The next civil war will be a large scale Battle Royal.

Unfortunately it is part of the agenda for some to perpetuate and keep the divide going. It's the typical divide and conquer strategy but some seem oblivious to the fact that they are being played. Of course more government control is the solution to fix all the isms except it leads right to totalitarianism.
