Active Engagement Continues, Parents and Teachers Begin Standing Up Against Virginia School Boards

Parents across the nation are beginning to recognize just how infected local school boards have become with the advancement of Critical Race Theory (CRT).  More and more parents and students are uniting to push back against the politicization of schools by ideologues within the school administration.

In Loudon County Virginia the school board is confronted by concerned parents.  One teacher from Fairfax County traveled to support the parents in Loudon County and sends a message of support to parents and students.   It is great to see a teacher confront the machine…

We need more teachers like her…  GREAT JOB !

If the education fractures or cleaves between Red States (Freedom, Patriotism) and Blue States (Indoctrination, Sheep), we will likely see an even greater intellectual diminishment amid the Democrat orthodoxy which is dependent on communal thought.

One example of the parent’s message:

Lebwrong, Shut Up And Dribble

When a policeman yells, “Stop, or I’ll shoot!,” it’s usually wise to do as he says. Similarly, if a knife-wielding teenage girl is chasing down another girl with a large knife and the intended victim is calling for help, it’s predictable procedure for the officer to yell at the perpetrator to get down on the ground. This was the case for 16 year-old Ma’Khia Bryant.  She refused to get down and was shot and killed. If the police officer had stood by and allowed her to stab her victim, the officer would be called racist for doing nothing.

Damned if you do, damned if you don’t

I don’t like police officers who are abusive, racist, overly-aggressive, militarized, or otherwise violating the Constitution, but people need to realize that they need to obey a cop’s orders in real time. If there is an injustice, it can be sorted out later by lawyers. These days, many don’t seem to understand this. They simply ignore the cops or resist in some way. In the case of police officer Chauvin, he followed police procedure with the resisting counterfeiter and convicted criminal George Floyd, who most likely died due to heart problems and an overdose of Fentanyl.

Like the OJ trial, mob rule took over in the murder trial of Chauvin. Political correctness and fear of what the mob might do has trumped justice. Instead of law and order we have no law and disorder. The mob is now in charge and that mob consists not only of protestors—peaceful or otherwise, but also politicians, Hollywood, and the mass media. They decide through force of opinion the fate of the accused.

Joining the mob is Lebron James, a sports figure. He tweeted out a very threatening message, “You’re next” along with a photo of the police officer who shot the teenager. The tweet was quickly removed. We at GrrrGraphics were banned from Twitter for the crime of being conservative. We never threatened anyone, but since James is ‘woke’ and supports communist China, he gets a break.

Threatening the life of a police officer should be a slam dunk reason to be banned from Twitter. It’s also another reason not to watch the NBA, or any other politicized sport.

Update: Ratings for NBA Finals were down 49%, Get Woke Go Broke…

37 Percent of Polled American Respondents Are Buying Less Coca-Cola Products


Posted originally on the conservative tree house April 22, 2021 | Sundance | 176 Comments

Rasmussen has a poll released today highlighting the corporate risks involved in entering politics.  Coca-Cola now discovering the cost of corporate wokeism as 37% of respondents say they are buying less product during boycott.

Thirty-three percent (33%) of Black adults say they are less likely to buy Coca-Cola because of the company’s involvement in the Georgia election law controversy, as are  35% of White adults and 44% of other non-white adults. As noted by the National Pulse:

[…] Respondents were asked several questions, including, “Is it a good idea or a bad idea for corporations to become involved in political controversies?”

Overall, 62 percent of respondents said that it was a “bad idea,” with only 20 percent saying it was a “good idea,” and 17 percent saying they were “Not sure.”  When asked if they had ever boycotted a company over “political issues,” 52 percent of those polled said “No,” while 41 percent replied “Yes.”

The third and last question on the survey asked: “After the Georgia legislature enacted a new election law requiring voter ID, Coca-Cola was one of the companies that publicly condemned the law. Does that make you more or less likely to purchase Coca-Cola products?”

Over a third of the respondents – 37 percent – said that they were “Less likely” to purchase Coca-Cola products due to the company’s interference. (more)

Perhaps one of the more telling statistics is that 45% of those aged 40 to 64 are boycotting Coke’s corporate wokeism.  This demographic is a key group with the majority of consumer spending power during the peak of their income earning.  Losing 45% of the U.S. market audience is a massive hit, even for a global (multinational) corporation.

The Face of Hate, Tucker Carlson Outlines Maxine Waters Long History of Inciting Political Violence


Posted originally on the Conservative tree house April 20, 2021 | Sundance | 180 Comments

Last night Fox News host Tucker Carlson did a lengthy historical review of California Congresswoman Maxine Waters and how she has requested and supported violence for several decades.  While many people know about Waters’ use of race as a tactic to advance division, the compilation of her support for violence is very disturbing when viewed in total.

Congresswoman Maxine Waters Demands Guilty Verdict in Derek Chauvin Trial, Without It She Encourages Violent Confrontation In The Streets


Posted originally on the conservative tree house April 18, 2021 | Sundance | 197 Comments

82-year-old Maxine Waters is one of the most vitriolic racial antagonizers in the nation.  During the George Zimmerman trial Maxine Waters demanded a guilty verdict.  During the investigation of Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson she demanded a murder indictment based on the demonstrably false “hands-up, don’t shoot” claims.  After the 2016 election Waters demanded that people physically confront Trump officials in restaurants and gas stations, “get up in their faces” and make them uncomfortable; in short, Maxine Waters consistently demands political violence.

There is zero doubt in my mind that Obama’s crew of racial antagonists are orchestrating and manipulating events around the trial of Derek Chauvin in the death of George Floyd.  All political arrows are being deployed from the quiver of racial hate and division.  Even the racially driven comments by Meghan Markle on the eve of the trial beginning were not random.   The activated political leftists are once again drum-beating for violent confrontation.

Following her pattern, the California representative traveled to Minnesota’s riot-plagued Brooklyn Center last night and called for people to get even “more confrontational” if Derek Chauvin is acquitted. She is blatantly endorsing political violence and mob anarchy. “We’re looking for a guilty verdict” she said, adding “If we don’t, we cannot go away, we’ve got to get more confrontational.” WATCH:

WOKE = Divide & Conquer


Armstrong Economics Blog/Politics Re-Posted Apr 14, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

I seriously doubt that people understand the true implications of how these governments have handled this pretend pandemic which has a kill ratio of a minimal 0.028%. This has been a grab for power and it will not end with everyone getting vaccinated. Even after the deluge of vaccines, they may allow the reopening of theatres, cinemas, hotels, and restaurants. People may return to commuting to work (unlikely), but the idea that this pandemic is nothing but a bad memory and they will put this all behind us, well, no such thing will take place.

This pandemic has been orchestrated right from the start. The United Nations sold pandemic bonds, and if they declared there was a pandemic, they did not have to repay. They fleeced all those investors and now only a mindless idiot would dare buy another. There have been countless after-effects from bankruptcies, job losses, countless fake studies with predetermined conclusions, and teenage suicides because their dreams of a future vocation were erased. All the pension funds and unions have been destroyed during this fake pandemic. There is no hope of returning to normal.

From here on out, every time society sneezes, governments will exert this newfound power. In their goal of wiping out the next disease, they can lock down the people and revert the world into a communistic prison camp. There will be endless emergences of new variants resistant to the current vaccines, for viruses are a form of life that will adapt to carry out their objective — to reduce the population whenever possible. There will be new lockdowns while waiting to produce billions of doses of new vaccines that will once more get emergency approval without long-term testing. Where governments were once there to protect society from untested drugs, today they are in league with the pharmaceutical industry because it justifies their power.

The discussion of climate change and overpopulation continues behind the curtain and this is no different from mass genocide to save the planet. We will have to endure this treatment every year, for decades to come; for this disease and no doubt for many others are now the source of political power. We will then have to decide if life is worth living in an internment camp, which is what they are transforming society into while simultaneously pushing the cancel culture and this woke movement designed to keep society divided to prevent a revolution.

Even Amazon’s internal documents exposed that the company rates their stores using a “diversity index,” and determined the threat of unionization is “higher” at stores with “lower diversity.” This is what the WOKE movement is all about — DIVIDE & CONQUER! Julius Caesar was able to conquer Gaul despite being outnumbered more than 10 to 1 because the Gauls never united until it was too late. Even in the final battle during September 52 BC, Julius Caesar sealed his fate as a legendary military commander at the Battle of Alesia where his army of 50,000 Romans defeated 200,000 Gauls in what is now modern-day Burgundy, France. The Celtic tribes were never united. Caesar defeated the Belgae tribes as well as the Helvetia. Had they all united, Caesar surely would not have conquered Europe. Hence, keep your opponents divided and you will win. This is the entire object of the woke movement — divide and created hatred between the groups.

The solution is clear — Unite & Conquer

•The situation started just before 2 p.m Sunday when officers tried to stop a vehicle for a traffic violation on the 6300 block of Orchard Avenue in the Brooklyn Center area of Minneapolis. •During the stop police learned the driver, Daunte Wright (20), had an outstanding warrant.  •Police attempted to take him into custody, but Daunte Wright fought with police and got back into the vehicle. •As the man got back into the vehicle an officer fired her gun hitting Wright.  •Daunte Wright was able to drive several blocks before hitting another vehicle. •Police said they attempted to revive Wright but he died at the scene.

Today police released the body camera video of the police shooting of Wright during the traffic stop in Brooklyn Center.  Police Chief Tim Gannon said the fatal shot was the result of an accidental discharge, and that the officer who shot Wright had intended to reach for her taser, but discharged a handgun instead.
