Reagan and BLM

reagan quote on guilt

How do you think Ronald Reagan would have handled the Black Lives Matter movement?  Or how people are distrustful of the police and police are so understandably nervous about doing their jobs? 

What do you think he would have said at the memorial service in Dallas yesterday?

Any thoughts on that?   I’m curious to see how people of great character and less bigotry than our sitting president might have handled yesterday………

Here’s the best quote from yesterday’s Memorial in Dallas…said by President George Bush:   “Too often, we judge other groups by their worst examples while judging ourselves by our best intentions.”  So well put.

I’m afraid to post this lest we don’t answer my question above, but just have to;  THIS is a FEEL GREAT STORY!

  1. I watched all of Obama’s speech yesterday in Dallas. He droned on for 30 minutes.

    He was doing quite well as Consoler in Chief — then veered off into scolding America and advocating, as always, gun control.

    As I received in email this morning from one of my friends, this is what Obama should have done in his speech:

    “Obama did not take it upon himself to merely bring comfort to the men in blue. That would have been appropriate. He seems to have no real sense of propriety.”

    More than likely, the Black Anarchist Lives Matter group might not have existed. But if they had, Ronaldus Magnamus might have called out the National Guard and that would have been that. Nothing like a few water cannons in the face to discourage communists from further outbursts.

    I believe that under a Reagan presidency this situation wouldn’t have degenerated to the point that it now is. The presence of B.O. in the White House is indicative of a dangerous national mind-set as he fosters the “victim” mentality, while doing nothing [positive] to create real jobs. That said, Reagan, never had to face the terrible problems in the Black Community caused by the fatherless results of the, so called, Great Society. That fiasco was yet to be felt during his term.

    George Bush has always been a class act. I miss his kind of person being in the White House.

    Barack Obama used the first person singular way too much in his speeches. As a matter of fact, he doesn’t give speeches, he gives lectures. What Obama did is totally in character for his type of person. He is a narcissist.

    AOW: “scolding” is EXACTLY how I see it…The way he stops….waits…as if “let this SINK IN, you morons”….ugh.
    He should NEVER have gone past the sympathy for the cops….no gun talk, nothing….he’s so full of himself he really think he is always right and we all just have to get with HIS program.

    I remember when neither Bush almost EVER used the words “I” or “MY”….Obama never misses a chance to say MY JUSTICE DEPARTMENT or MY OVAL OFFICE, etc etc…never

    Ed…that really does show who’s the better person…beautifully done, wasn’t it.
    and I thought the same thing..>Reagan would have definitely been more like Bush…but even more 🙂

    Sparky…I wonder how bad it’ll get in Cleveland? because it is going to BE BAD. You’re right; a few water cannons would do the job. But in today’s Obama-World, they won’t use them….they’d call it a form of water boarding….and GOD FORBID that happens! 🙂

    JMB..right…I loved when Chief Brown mentioned the huge amount of babies born to single mothers in the Black comm. and how the police shouldn’t have to handle THAT problem, too.

    Kid, that Chris Rock video is a good one…..I think Reagan would have had the GUTS to speak truth to the Black community…. it’s so awful to see Obama constantly BLAME everyone BUT that community.

    yes, “LECTURES” are what Obama gives…great point. You never felt ‘scolded’ when other presidents spoke, at least I didn’t. With Obama, I always feel guilty about something, or just plain BAD about something…..until I get my wits about me and remember who’s saying it.

    I’d never put that in words…I knew he made me feel scolded, but guilty is another word for that feeling. WHat country wants a president always making us feel guilty or bad or wrong all the time?

    And, if Trump keeps up what HE’s doing, we’re going to have HIllary for at least four years….honestly?: I can’t bear it.

    Hard to improve on the above consensus. But here is the conclusion of my rant 2 days ago on the BLM subject:

    When in the course of ordinary life it becomes necessary for law enforcement to terminate the activities of troublesome parasites which have latched themselves to entitlement programs and made great nuisances of themselves by flouting authority and flaunting their self-assumed roles of professional victimhood, common sense dictates that the lawful authorities explain the factors which motivate them to employ deadly force upon rampant truculents.

    Reasonable people hold these basic truths to be self-evident and self-explanatory, that some people are whiney professional victims, that they have rejected the customs and traditions of the majority of decent members of society, that they are irremediable, uncooperative, and counterproductive to the life, liberty, and general well-being of others. – That to protect the rights of the general public, law enforcement agencies are established at the municipal, county, state, and federal levels with standard training in the use of weapons, crowd management, crime investigation, and control of traffic on city, county, state, and federal lands and transportation infrastructure. – That whenever any moron becomes destructive of those ends, it is the duty of law enforcement personnel to control, alter, or end the behavior so that peace and normal activities amongst law-abiding individuals can proceed unencumbered.

    Raygun Ronnie wouldn’t have said that, of course, at least not for public consumption, but he’d’a thunk it.

  19. President Obama doesn’t simply lecture us, in my view; he castigates, chastises ridicules and scorns us. He oozes contempt and disdain for Americans and America. His disapproval is palpable and detestable! The next 7 months are going to be brutal.

    Had President Reagan faced the exact situation as we are facing today, he would have done three things. First, he would have spoken soaringly about the sacrifices of these police officers. He would have kindly and compassionately comforted the families, fellow officers and citizens of Dallas. He would have praised police officers across the country for their hard work, bravery, fortitude and resilience. He would have reminded all of us about their necessity to maintain law and order. He would have challenged us all to give more respect and gratitude to the men in blue.

    Secondly, he would have announced actions against Black Lives Matter, the New Black Panther Party and all other anarchist groups encouraging this heinous violence toward our law enforcement officers. He would probably have appointed some high profile individual to lead the investigation and engage the FBI to join forces with local law enforcement to root out these killers. He would not have given one iota of legitimacy to these lawless, violent, dangerous groups. He would have called them out, told them that they were going to pay a very heavy price for their evil. And he would have called it evil.

    Third, he would have spoken to the law-abiding Black Community directly about the violence in their neighborhoods, the lack of nuclear families, the poor condition of their environment and how he intended to implement positive programs to address the legitimate problems facing them. He would not pander to them, but he would have acknowledged their plight. More than likely he would have announced another high profile individual to head up a commission that would implement measures to lift them up. He would encourage those who are stopped by police officers to NOT resist arrest, to not threaten officers with firearms, to obey them even if they were innocent. He would have encouraged them to argue about it later, in a court of law. He would have spoken directly to them as the American citizens they are, not down to them as though they’re too stupid and pathetic to better their own lives, like Obama and so many other politicians do.

    So many things would be different today if we’d had Ronald Reagan in office all along…. Such a pipe dream, huh?

    I am listening to Hillary’s incredibly ugly speech in Springfield, Illinois just now and it’s brutal, and mostly true, about Trump. I don’t worry so much about this, though I believe she made some truthful points about him …OMG…he actually mentioned an ‘ARTICLE 12’ that doesn’t EXIST? WHY is he SO UNINFORMED, UNEDUCATED on the gov’t and constantly showing it?

    What I worry more about is TRUMP’S RESPONSE….if it’s anything nearly as brutal as what she’s said about him today, and you know how far Trump will go, his answer could completely screw us over…..

    Remember how nastily he responded to what Ginsberg’s said about him…he went WAY too far…when all he had to say was “The Justice was completely unethical in saying that…we should know that and be wary.” No, he had to call her names and say she should step down. (which I frankly believe is true, but he needs to act presidential..>SAY THE WORST but say it with DIGNITY…will he EVER learn?)

Trump is very capable of dishing that up if prepared properly. He should. As Dick Morris says, she’s running a racket and Bill is her bagman.

    Reagan projected a naturally positive vision of and for America. That’s another reason I don’t think he’d be in this same bind. The sanguinity of his persona is such a contrast to the thin-skinned victocrat in office now.

    Imp — I have very long conversations with my grandkids, all of whom are teenagers or 20-somethings except one.

    We discuss politics, religion, defense, education, literature, general science, and lotsa other stuff. Most of the conversations run from 45 to 90 minutes. One kid is named Jacob, and a week ago I took him thru the entire Abram/Abraham-Sarai/Sarah- Isaac-Yshmael-Jacob-Esau primogeniture stuff. He was fascinated.

    Yesterday afternoon it was beer and wine and why alcohol content can’t naturally progress beyond about 12% by volume because the bacteria producing it literally drown in their own waste product with a 16-yr-old named Adam. Explained stills to him and how whiskeys are produced. He drank it all in.

    About 2 weeks ago it was the principles involved in air conditioning, with outside coils and compressors forcing a gas into a liquid and then through the inside heat exchanger to absorb the heat required to turn it back into a gas with one named Nathan (22-yr-old).

    I am, as y’all might have guessed, a compulsive lecturer and will hold forth on topics from megavolcanoes to astronomy to weight loss to auto mechanics. Surprisingly, they actually listen. AND, they come to me for advice on reading material to prep them for college. Very gratifying.
