E Pluribus Unum

slide_33


America used to be different.

There are places on this planet where people raise their children to hate their neighbors. In the former Yugoslavia, the Middle East and large parts of Africa there are people who kill each other because of ancient grievances and allegiances that go back a thousand years or more.

One of the things that made America great is that we used to leave all that crap behind when we came here. It didn’t use to matter whether your ancestors came over on the Mayflower or crossed the border a few weeks before you were born. We were all Americans, with one history.

There was this thing we called the “melting pot” where all the different crayons melted down and mixed together and became one color. Yeah, there were some lumps in the melting pot, but we were working that out. We aspired to be a nation where people were judged on the content of their character rather than the color of their skin.

Then along came “multiculturalism” and “diversity” which are wholly incompatible with assimilation and the idea of e pluribus unum. The Democrat party became focused on “identity politics” which is all about the things that make us different.

And now they can’t understand why we are so divided and polarized.

  1. I’m in the lull between storms. None of these storms is really bad but they are coming one after the other and there isn’t enough time for things to drain off and dry out.

    Random thought after seeing yet another posting of those unprofessional meltdowns of the MSM.

    Has anyone else noticed the uncanny resemblance between Rachel maddow and pajama boy ?

    • DandyTIger says:

      And have we seen them together? Hmmm….

    • DeniseVB says:

      Rachel was “discovered” by Keith Olbermann when he had his MSNBC show, he lost his job, Rach keeps hers. Always thought Rachel and Chris Hayes were twins, yeah, pajama boys 🙂

      • 1539days says:

        At the time, Maddow was losing her job at Air America.

        • DeniseVB says:

          I remember Air America from my Lib days and it was more annoying than Howard Stern and Don Imus. I met a couple of AA’s other “jocks” at YKo7 and they were more annoying in person. I swear, death of the Dems started back in 2007 😦

          • lateblum says:

            So True! Remember Randi Rhodes or that other annoying woman Stephanie Miller? I turned it on after a brief vacation from it and realized just how crazed they were. And I was still a “Dem” at the time.

          • DeniseVB says:

            Randi and Stephanie, yes, met them at the YK07, it was held at the McCormick Center that year. Teamsters held a party and I got a tour of one of their semi-cabs. The living space was larger than a cheap NYC studio apt. Good times. Oh wait… 😉

  6. DandyTIger says:

    There’s another word for the salad approach, for identity politics and division, and keeping our own cultures separate. It’s called segregation. And funny that it’s the old segregationist party, the party of slavery and Jim Crow and eugenics, that’s pushing it. Hmmmm.

  7. Mt.Laurel says:

    I’ll take “Old Dogs and New Tricks” for $1,000 Alex. . . .?

    • DandyTIger says:

      Actually, that is one more thing I voted for when I voted for Trump. For insane SJW, identity/segregationist asswipes to feel less privileged. You’re welcome.

      • 1539days says:

        That’s a big ole ball of crazy. Southern + not crying about Trump winning = Trump supporter. On top of that, Trump supporter = anti-Semite who is also willing to beat up a random customer for being Jewish.

        That’s the bubble. These liberals live in communities where they don’t know anyone with differing viewpoints. If someone sneaks in, they don’t associate with them. So, when a regular person like a plumber shows up, they can’t even handle it.

    • Constance says:

      What a load of bigoted projection.

  9. lateblum says:

    Just finished half-watching FTN. Tammy Bruce was a superb spokesperson/defender for Trump. And, at one time, when Dickerson said that “Obama is in the rear view mirror”, Bruce said, “Let’s hope so”. She clearly was ready to take on the lies and innuendos that came her way.
    Oddly enough, my brother emailed me a lengthy article calling into question Trump’s “stiff upper lip” rt the intelligence report about the Russians’ trying to influence the election. I finally responded to my brother about the lies of Clapper and how I wouldn’t trust anything his name was on. I gave many examples of Clapper’s lies, and Obama’s lies and misdeeds. I suggested that all those people who are in a tailspin about Trump need to get a grip and realize that we’ve barely survived Obama’s WH.
    I added that BHO actively tried to influence elections in other countries including the threat to diminish trade with UK if the Brexit vote were to pass.
    I may never hear from him again. I hope that’s not the case.

    Hanksy’s ‘Dump Trump’ Mural on Orchard Street was Just Erased

  17. Somebody says:

    You’re correct Klown multiculturalism is anathema to what is the traditional American culture of a melting pot. Liberals seem to think assimilation means losing your culture, that’s not true. Part of what makes America the melting pot is that we absorb and adopt various aspects of many cultures, albeit mostly European customs and traditions, but not all are Eurocentric.

    Assimilation is critical for any immigrant to any nation in order to be successful. Assimilation doesn’t mean you forsake your “roots” either. I know plenty of immigrants that speak their native tongue in their home, but are fluent in English. They also carry on with various customs, holidays and traditions from their native country, but they are 100% assimilated. They are 100% American and damn thankful to be American citizens. I particularly enjoy celebrating the 4th of July with my 1st generation immigrant neighbors and their children. Man talk about love of country!

    I know Melania would be maligned for it, but I see such a wonderful opportunity for her as 1st lady. I know she wants to concentrate on cyber bullies, but I’d love to see her reach out to immigrant communities and talk about the benefits of assimilation. Talk about opportunities, talk about ways to integrate into American society, talk about the importance of learning English. Like I said she’d be maligned no matter how gracefully she handled it. We have an assimilation problem though and who better to talk about it than our immigrant 1st lady who has walked in those shoes AND been successful.

      Legacy admissions (and their sibling, dumb donor kid admissions) are the kind of affirmative action that nobody seems to get too upset about.

      • Lulu says:

        At state universities it is politician’s kids or relatives and they use taxpayer money appropriations sweeteners to get them admitted. At least the Kushner’s used their own money. One of my sons (years ago now) was in an engineering program (extremely competitive) and a high ranking state senator’s son was “placed” in the program. That boy was so dumb they HAD to eventually take him out and send him to Goat-Roper’s U as a volleyball major.

      This reminds me of a thing I read about how when more than 2 girls get together, a group of them will gang up on another. I can’t look it up because there’s no way to parse the search without a bunch of porno links.

      • Jadzia says:

        I remember that being kind of a “thing” back when I was a kid (having been upon many occasions the victim and upon one occasion, I am ashamed to admit, a perpetrator). But I don’t see that happening with my daughters and their classmates. Maybe times are changing.

    • elliesmom says:

      I thought the idea behind feminism was women are equal to men and deserve the same access to networking spaces. Like the clubs men join, golf courses, etc. Why would successful businesswomen want to pay money to join what is essentially a powder room? Don’t we take enough heat already for never going to the bathroom alone?

      • Lulu says:

        Feminism today seems to be about exclusion. Who can they exclude so they don’t have to compete with them? It seems insecure and more than a tat lazy ass.

      Fiat Chrysler will invest $1 billion in building manufacturing plants in Michigan and Ohio, expected to create 2,000 jobs.
      That’s just building the plants, not counting the contractors, building supplies being sold, workers from all the trades.
      Electricial, plumbing, welders, steel workers,etc.

    “Hillary Clinton confidante Neera Tanden says she doesn’t expect Clinton to run for New York mayor — or anything else, ever again.
    “I think she’s going to figure out ways to help kids and families. That’s been what she’s been focused on her whole life, and a lot of issues that are affecting them, over the next couple of years,” Tanden told CNN’s Jake Tapper on “State of the Union” Sunday.
    “But I don’t expect her to ever run for any elected office again,” she said.” http://m.cnn.com/politics/2017/01/08/tanden-clinton-will-never-run-for-office-again
    The “kids” shtick again. Always good for virtue signalling and a few bucks. How did Hillary’s “help” work out for kids in Haiti, Libya, and Syria?

    • Lulu says:

      Regulations. Miles and miles of red tape. Isn’t this one of the reasons Trump was elected? He can have fun tweeting about it. And every single person who has had a problem at the DMV or IRS will relate to it.

        Comments to his tweets this morning are brutal. Facts? We don’t need no stinkin’ facts, we’ll just pile on like the clueless CTRL-left thugs that we are.

        In other news, the New York Times is calling for a boycott of Breitbart News. Isn’t that special? Idiots don’t realize, after months of bashing Trump, that which doth not kill you makes you stronger. Sigh.

        • Venus says:

          Yeah lib heads exploding all over the place because he and KellyAnne responded. Republicans are supposed to fall into a fetal position and beg for mercy when Hollywood and/or MSM attacks, not fight back.

      • votermom says:

        “over-rated” is one of those – what did Scott Adams call them? – perfect words to undercut Streep because a lot of people think that although she’s good, her acting is too hyped.

        • Lulu says:

          I never saw anything special about her. She picked some good roles with good writing but that was a long time ago. She always made the actors look better because she is so plain. Her accents are also terrible to the point of funny. Now she is just a pretentious old fart.

          • mothy67 says:

            Everytime I see her now I will think of this. Hers aren’t the kind of movies I see in te theater anyhow. Large screen at home and chinese is way cheaper.

    • Somebody says:

      Excellent Denise, thanks for sharing. I hope someone sent it to Streep.

      • DeniseVB says:

        I’m dropping it off in the comments on tweets bowing to Streep’s Greatness. Also reminding people she gave Roman Polanski a standing ovation at a previous awards show. Yeah, she’s a dilly 😉 Makes me sad because I usually enjoy Streep’s projects, I hate when I lose interest in entertainers who think they’re smarter than me, then clearly prove they’re not.

        • elliesmom says:

          I usually enjoy her movies, too, but once a celebrity becomes part of a real-life narrative, whether it’s taking a political stand, abusing a child or a spouse, being repeatedly arrested, it puts a mask over their performances for me. It doesn’t mean I necessarily boycott them, but I don’t get as excited because I see they’re performing. I weigh whether the pleasure I’d get from the performance is enough for me to get past not wanting to support them financially. It depends a lot on what my grievance with them is. Flying around the country to promote global warming issues won’t keep me away as much being a serial abuser would. One celebrity is stupid. A lot of performers aren’t very bright. Abusing your kids is vile.

          • DeniseVB says:

            Well said em. I’m not a boycott person, but I tend to lose interest also. It has to be affecting the box office and tv ratings. Like my semi-annual NYC fix, since DeBlasio defending BLM over his police and political lectures from Broadway cast members, just lost interest. It’s been a couple of years and not missing it 😦

          • DeniseVB says:

            Polanski was forgiven for years by the celebrity elite because Charlie Manson made him do it. I wonder if Obama will pardon him after all these years and that California decriminalized child prostitution, so it’s no biggy anymore.

        Oh I hope you can get retribution !

      • Somebody says:

        I would think your home owner’s insurance would cover it. Most likely they will seek judgment against the driver and if by chance they manage to collect you could get reimbursed for your deductible if they get all the money back. You can also take a casualty loss on your taxes.

        • lyn says:

          Thanks for the info. Have not done this before.

          • lateblum says:

            Good luck, lyn. I’m still fighting with my insurance because they attributed the cause of my accident to me. The driver that hit me also had no insurance.

          • lyn says:

            Grrrrr. Our deductible is $1,000 for the homeowner’s insurance. We have to file a separate claim for the car under its insurance.

          Why didn’t they choose a larger venue? One of the sports places will have held a bigger crowd. I mean, it’s Chicago, they love their Prince of Darkness there.

          • lateblum says:

            He’s going to speak at McCormick Place. It’s pretty big. And it’s on the lake where there is parking. Trump was to speak at the UIC Pavilion. The daytime parking is bad as it is on the university campus and students, faculty, and staff take up all the parking. I doubt this venue will be half-filled. This is Chicago;the Prince of darkness is king. No, really.

    OMG just turned on my TV to FNC to see what’s happening in the world today……haha, the show What’s Happening was on.

    Rich Lowry was on discussing media coverage of campaign. He says and I quote “I think a lot of people in the media and certainly a lot of people on the left think it is their job not just to fact check Donald Trump, but to oppose Donald Trump and that’s something else entirely and that’s wrong”.

    I guess Rich has forgotten about his special anti-Trump edition of NRO or at least he hopes the audience has.

  45. dm says:

    These holier than thou celebrity types always amuse me…the gossip on Streep is that for many years now, she trolls the coffee houses/bars of a local college town looking for some smart young men with raw talent to take under her wing…and, of course, under her sheets as well. Sort of like Susan Sarandon’s character in Bull Durham.
