    "Bull Connor may be gone. But today we witness with our own eyes police officers kneeling on the necks of Black Americans. George Wallace may be gone. But we can witness our federal government sending agents to use tear gas and batons against peaceful demonstrators. We may no longer have to guess the number of jellybeans in a jar in order to cast a ballot. But even as we sit here, there are those in power are doing their darnedest to discourage people from voting – by closing polling locations, and targeting minorities and students with restrictive ID laws, and attacking our voting rights with surgical precision, even undermining the postal service in the runup to an election that is going to be dependent on mailed-in ballots so people don't get sick."

    These people are not idiots. Their followers are idiots. Count the lies in the paragraph I posted. Read the whole text.

    Look for words like "subjugation". subjugation: the action of bringing someone or something under domination or control.

    Which party wants to virtually control every aspect of life? They accuse others of the crimes that they commit. They fan the flames of anarchy.

    What's even worse about what ODumbo said, besides the fake southern accent, is that the people there seemed to agree, judging by the applause. Of course, the arrogant scumbag had his nose in the air like always. Looks like he's becoming Al Sharpton II.

    "Bull Connor may be gone . . . " but his fellow Democrats still regard all Blacks as their slaves.

    What needs to happen is simple. The GOP needs to send some of their dinosaurs home and run some young articulate people who are willing to go into a Black Church on Sunday morning and ask Black folks if they are better off after 56 years of voting for Democrats. Are your schools better? Are your jobs better? Are the incarceration rates for your young me better and how is paying young women to have kids and not have husbands working out?

    Yes: but dinosaurs could do it best because they were there to live it.

    Kodiac, the name of this thread is spot on, according to Dinesh D'Souza. This is what he said about ODumbo at Lewis's funeral:
    “He stokes the very fires that he pretends to be extinguishing.”

    What needs to happen is usually clear, but has yet to happen, as far back as I can see.

    How often do I have to tell you? One for the rich and powerful and one for the rest of us.
