THIS IS HOLY TO ME….this is TRUTH, this man is ASTONISHING.    THIS is the type of man we need more of in America.

God bless him, keep him healthy, keep him talking….reward him for his hard work getting through two medical degrees with no financial help.

Thank you, God, for people like HIM.

Amen and Amen.

    Yeah, well . . . . his attack on CRT is on point and effective, but I suspect we’ll discover that his “two medical degrees” and “big brother to Candace Owens” claims are somewhat exaggerated.

    Here’s my take on CRT (sent it out yesterday as Claudette tried to get in my house):

    Rainin this mornin, and accordin to the “science” guys it’s gonna be an all-day thing, even an all-weekend event. So since I can’t do much outside and there will be absolutely NOTHIN of interest to me on the mind-pablum generator, there ain’t much left ‘cept readin . . . . which in turn stimulates writin.

    In the past hour or so I’ve read a collection of articles on this “critical race theory” that has so captivated acadaemia and much of our federal “leadership,” especially the SecDef.

    Looks to me as if “whiteness” breaks down to logical planning of your life, establishment of difficult but achievable goals, back-up plans for emergencies, getting a good basic education, being self-reliant, doing research and thinking things through, resisting impulse buying and self-gratification, keeping your word, and picking yourself up and starting over when things don’t work out as planned.

    In other words, racism . . . ‘cuz doing those things disadvantages people who DON’T do those things, such as illegal immigrants, young black males, and dropout wannabes. What CRT amounts to is commandeering racism and using it as a costume to hide the fact that it’s essentially Marxist elitism.

    The people who get their panties in a wad over racism, reparations, wealth redistribution, equality, workers’ rights, and other causes celebre are usually wealthy, powerful, greedy bastards whose goal isn’t to elevate the oppressed masses but to give them the edge over their own elite competitors. IOW, it’s all about gaining more power over people.

    For example, Castro came from a wealthy family and was a law student; Mao Tze’s old man was a wealthy landlord and racketeer; Bin Laden was a multi-millionaire; Lenin was a member of the Russian nobility; and Soros is a gazillionaire.

    Somehow those who preach CRT got it into their heads that blacks and latino immigrants aren’t intellectually sharp enough to compete with them and accomplish things on their own. If they suspected that young black thugs and babymaking girls were smart enough to finish school and make something of themselves, we’d have no BLM or AntiFa or La Raza ‘cuz they wouldn’t make the news or be funded.

    If the majority of young blacks and latinos became self-sufficient within the system and quietly but effectively began achieving the American dream on their own, the elites would accuse THEM of racism the way they now accuse the Jewish and Asian Americans who do it.

    CRT is designed to compel ordinary whites to consider themselves some kind of irritant, like eczema or psoriasis, and be treated that way by minorities as if THEY were the aliens, the invaders, the troublemakers.

    The idea is to isolate Caucasians and legitimize hate-based violence, including ethnic cleansing, against them. To give it a proper name, let’s call it Scapegoating. Statues of previous white heroes, including Jefferson and Washington, are torn down to make room for statues of people such as George Floyd, a thug who overdosed on lethal drugs. He’s made into a folk hero while white victims of black thugs are ignored because CRT says they don’t deserve any consideration since they’re privileged by society.

    What the proponents of this “theory” fail to recognize is that the people suffering the most are blacks and latinos whose businesses and neighborhoods are destroyed by mobs in what the lamestream media classify as “mostly peaceful” demonstrations. Yes, once in a while a white or Jewish or Asian is sucker-punched on the street by some oppressed black “SJW,” but the dead body counts are overwhelmingly in the black communities.

    The elite social-justice champions come out and stir things up, cause massive property damage and job loss, then retreat back into their walled compounds guarded by security teams and electronic devices. To them it’s all an abstraction, a fad, a virtue-signalling distraction. But wokeism itself is whiteness personified, and it’s not an abstraction but overt racism which ultimately victimizes minorities by keeping them on the plantation forever.

    The billionaire CEOs and technocrats demand that their employees endure sensitivity training and act “less white,” but you can bet that when the final numbers are in, THEY are the ones whose bank accounts have swelled by millions as old white or Asian ladies are beaten on the streets and blacks are killed in the ghettos of big cities.

    Well . . . that’s enuffadat – – – I’m gonna get a cuppa and try to find somethin more fun to give my fingers exercise with, since that’s about all the exercise I’m gonna get this weekend. Gotta give props to governors such as DeSantis and Abbot who aren’t puttin up with the crap and have banned CRT from school curricula in their states.

    Good news, of course.

    My guess is that there are thousands of similar “success stories” … people who, despite the conditions of their birth and early upbringing, had a vision for themselves and pursued it to its final conclusion. Thomas Sowell is another remarkable success story. The common denominator appears to be a realization that the key to success in a complex society such as ours is education. Education doesn’t produce the end result; it only opens doors through which anyone can pass. One open door leads to another.

    Ultimately, success stories such as this one heavily depend on the individual’s perseverance because there are plenty of opportunities in life to lose one’s focus. Success in life isn’t entirely dependent on college degrees, either. The last time I checked, a highly skilled engine mechanic, a welder, or an electrician can earn more in a year than someone who graduated from law school.

    I also suspect that there are as many remarkable stories among white, brown, and yellow-skinned people. I think that what distinguishes these success stories from everyone else in somewhat similar circumstances of birth and upbringing is “vision.” That is, being able to answer the question, “Where do you see yourself in ten years?” You may be surprised that 90% of our youth today do not know where they see themselves tomorrow much less a decade from now. Why is that? No vision … no dreams … no gumption … no sense of self.

    America is the land of opportunity; it has never been the land of guaranteed success. The harder the struggle, the sweeter success becomes — which is generally years down the pike. What I hope is that people who strive for success in life will give equal attention to their spiritual well-being. I’ve known a few people who achieved quite a lot in the middle years but ended up miserable sots, broke and dispirited … and this, too, is a real shame.

    Thanks for your upbeat post today.

    Fifty years from now when the U S of A is an Afrocentric Brown and Black Country will a state run incrementalism one day hand the country back over to the white man? Will the drug cartels be battling the Muslims in the streets for control of the drug trades?
    These and so many other seemingly silly questions will be answered in time.

    BOCOPRO, thanks for your thoughts on CRT….some good stuff there.
    He never said he was Owens’ brother; people labeled him that because he thinks like her. I doubt he’d ever say anything like lying about degrees…….

    MUSTANG…it’s hard with this crowd to post positive pieces; they get trounced fairly hard here…but I am remaining positive and am certain a man like Ty Smith is someone who can actually make a difference. If more did have spiritual well-being, perhaps we wouldn’t have the nightmare some of them are creating! Glad you liked this piece.

    KID…let’s hope THIS ‘one man’ survives the negativity and he apparently has a radio show so let’s hope he gets heard more and more! Thanks.

    PETER….who would you suggest are those ‘most blind’?

    We definitely need more with his attitude. That being said, what Ron said about doubting his having 2 medical degrees sounds more logical to me. I mean, he didn’t say he was a doctor. Example: He might be both an EMT and an R.N. Both could loosely qualify as medical degrees.

    BOCOPRO…they are not related…he’s from Decatur, Georgia, she’s from Stamford, CT….”Sister” meant something different, apparently…. like “sister in mind/opinion, Bro” HA!!!

    MAL and BOCOPRO….He specifically said MEDICAL degrees….and good luck finding which they are; I tried and tried. He actually has a radio show.

    I don’t care WHO he’s related to or what he’s got, other than hoping he’s not a liar…..I really like what he said at that meeting and it’s gone so viral it has to affect a TON of people.

    “the land of opportunity; it has never been the land of guaranteed success.” Well put. For all people. John Roebling is lionized for his advances engineering superior cable strands for suspension bridges, and later for his design and building of the Brooklyn Bridge. Smart guy. But still got some things wrong – like believing technology would make a utopia. (He should see it now!!). German immigrant. Came to America first class with his brothers. By the time the ship landed here they had redesigned and implemented an improved sanitary sewage system on the ship! Still … many failures awaited him on his road to success and fame.

    The belief that you should have no roadblocks and if you do then others are to blame (hey! they may be at times) then you are doomed to wallow in pity and lack the ability to foster forward momentum in yourself. Where you look for that then? Hmm. Right. Gov’ment. Excellent video! “I can’t believe we are even talkin’ about this right now!” Amen.

    I too have a little more hope. More than Kid. Less than you.

    Listened again. It’s just what we’ve complained about in the covid crisis, only one narrative allowed for profit and power. That man is doing the biggest NO-NO: standing up to authoritarian control of what he thinks for profit or power. It’s encouraging to hear him say “none of them [black folks] are buying this.” I’ve heard the same thing said about pockets of black resistance to the covid narrative too btw. Suggests to me that some people are actually thinking and it’s not in just one area. I think Trump did pry open a door when he asked inner city audiences to think about what their politicians had wrought in their daily lives. I hope so!

    It seemed like the BLM movement participants were in one of two camps. Dumbass white people doing the protesting, black people doing the damage and looting and not buying the BLM thing for a minute.
    Also, anyone hear of a black person complaining about the BLM co-founder buying expensive houses for herself with the donation money?

    Just hearing this podcast – Glenn Loury and John McWhorter – “A Takeover by Dumb” shows they get a lot of complaints from parents and such about all this stuff. Did not specify race, but it’s clear they see a backlash trying to drive toward sanity.

    Democrats thrive on social division. I am heartened to realize that while Democrats have their base in lockstep, there are an awful lot of people “out there,” black, white, Hispanic, Asian, who reject the progressive strategy and have the courage of their convictions to make their objections known. We conservatives must not allow the Progressives to win this fight. We must not allow Democrats to divide us, and conquer us. I keep wondering, though … if all the progressives have in their kit is skin color, how have they gotten this far?
