THE ROAD DIVIDED
In the first of this series I talked about the Syrian refugees and others that are pouring into this country. The policies of the Obama administration opened our borders and strained our infrastructure to cope. Our hospitals, schools and workplace are now a breeding ground for diseases and cultural incompatibilities.
Then Comes Oprah
In a video now on youtube Oprah Winfrey makes shocking statement in a recent interview. She states bluntly that she feels “old white people are racist and should just die”. Wow ! Really? Well everyone one is entitled to their opinion but be so openly blunt about her feelings to me is the epitome of racism. Especially since I happen to be a old white guy. An old white guy I might add that has a black grandchild. Just when you thought we all were building bridges and walking arm in arm into a future that is more tolerant of all peoples we get a slap in the face from the very people that should be building rooms of trust not walls of hate. MLK changed this country and everyone’s lives by proclaiming peace not war. Its disgraceful and extremely bigoted for the way Oprah and others, Obama, Holder and Lynch to name a few feel and ACT.
In my book
Although as I have stated above everyone is entitled to their own opinions and policies. I am not one to claim that what Oprah said was “hate speech” or that it should be banned. Free speech shows no color or creed and should be shouted from any mountain top or soap box an individual has at their disposal. Granted the people that stand on the mountain should be fully aware of the echoes their voices perpetuate unto the masses. As for myself and from this little soap box from which I stand I wish for you all to understand. I believe in the concepts and dreams of MLK. I also believe in my god given right to defend, preserve and protect MY HERITAGE and that of my children. So while it comes as no surprise that Oprah would say such a thing I ponder on a few thoughts such as.
If the circumstances in this country changed for the worse though any means, natural disaster, civil disorder, wall street melt down or any other such events. What would it take for Oprah to put a weapon in her hand and carry out herself her wishes for most of middle America. Further what weapons does she and others like her already hold in their hands and how are they being used clandestinely now even as we speak?
One more thing?
This is directed straight to Oprah and anyone like her. I wish no harm to you or anyone regardless of your words or you intent. I wish peace to you and to all mankind regardless of race creed or religious beliefs. That said. MY INTENT is to lead a long and prosperous life and to do my best to ensure the cultural heritage my forefathers have endowed me with for future generations.
Words Are Weapons
And I hope this plays well my friends (enemies I have none) with you all.
