Biden’s Money for Drugs

There are many reasons to worry about President Biden’s huge stimulus proposal, but one I haven’t heard is that it will benefit the Mexican drug cartels.  One of the main ingredients of the proposal is to help blacks on welfare through various mechanisms.  One of the things we have learned from all the news reporting on killing of blacks by police officers is that the black community is deeply involved in drug trafficking.  Almost all of those killed were connected in some way to the drug business if only because they were using drugs when they confronted the police. 

George Floyd was high when he tried to pass a counterfeit $20 bill and had a drug dealer in his car when he was arrested, who declined to testify at Floyd’s trial by taking the 5th Amendment.  Brianna Taylor was sleeping with a drug dealer when police broke into her apartment and killed her while confronting her drug-dealer boyfriend.  Andrew Brown was killed when sheriff’s deputies were trying to serve a warrant on him for drug dealing. 

Lesson of the police shootings reported almost daily in the press is that drug use is widespread in the black community.  Thus, much of the billions or trillions of dollars that Biden is proposing to give the black community will go to drug use, to local drug dealers, but eventually to the cartel drug lords in Mexico.  Biden’s immigration policies are already big money makers for the cartels, which have branched out into providing coyotes to smuggle aliens into the US illegally.  Much of the additional “soft infrastructure” money will go for drugs and boost drug use throughout the black community.  It will be a huge boost for the drug network, enriching dealers all along the chain from users to cartel drug lords.  Money that is meant for childcare, elder care, unemployment compensation, food security, etc., will end up paying for drugs. 

Blacks Should Stop Complaining

The main lesson I draw from the non-stop coverage of cops shooting blacks is that blacks as a race are violent, dangerous lawbreakers.  This New York Times article about a Supreme Court decision highlights the degree to which cops are threatened daily by blacks.  Almost all of the cases espoused by Black Lives Matter have involved blacks who were violating the law, threatened other people, and tried to escape from the arresting policeman.  Usually, the black person was not shot until they tried to escape. 

While white cops might treat blacks roughly and arrest them more often than whites, it looks like if the blacks did not resist arrest, they would not get shot.  In many of these cases the blacks being arrested already had police records.  While they may have been stopped for “driving while black,” the problem was that when the police checked their name, there was an outstanding warrant from their arrest.  These were bad people and, in most cases, violent. 

Black Lives Matter is holding up some of the worst role models for black youth — violent felons or mentally deranged people who were a threat to their community.  George Floyd was a convicted felon, who was engaged in a criminal act (passing counterfeit money) and resisted arrest by the police while he was high on drugs.  Black fathers should have “the talk” and tell their children not to commit crimes and not to resist arrest. 

The news reports of the black men killed by cops make the black community look awful: violent, dishonest, uncivilized.  It’s no wonder that cops are afraid of blacks.  After watching the news, I am afraid of them, too. 

Although blacks as a race appear terrible in the news, there are many individual blacks who are outstanding and should be held up as role models by the community, rather than scum like George Floyd.  At the top of the list is Barak Obama, who was an excellent President for eight years.  Colin Powell was an outstanding general and Secretary of State.  Jeh Johnson was a great Secretary of Homeland Security at a difficult time.  Jim Clyburn was responsible for getting Joe Biden elected President.  Biden has named many good blacks to his administration. There are many other outstanding blacks, but they don’t matter to Black Lives Matter, which wants every black person treated like a king even if he is a violent felon. 

The black community needs to take some pride in itself.  It needs to stop asking for handouts, welfare, and “reparations,” and go to work.  Black people need to be productive members of society, not weights on the system.  They should not need “affirmative action.”  They should be able to compete on a level playing field.  Blacks have been in America for 400 years.  Jews have only been in America in great numbers since World War II but have become leaders in many fields.  Asian Indians have only been here for about a generation, but already they are leaders in many areas – particularly science and business.  Asians have become leaders in tech and finance. Where are the blacks?  They need to study, work hard, and move ahead, rather than complaining and demonstrating. 

Enough about the Holocaust

I have heard enough about the Holocaust.  Perhaps this feeling started while I was stationed at the American Embassy in Warsaw, Poland, in 1995, the 50th anniversary of the end of World War II.  The Holocaust was everywhere, because of Americans, not so much because of the Poles or the Germans.  Now it’s 25 years later, and the Holocaust industry is still going full steam. 

I think it has been amplified by the recent turn against Southerners in the US.  I am a Southerner, and I find the general public attitude is that killing a Jew in the Holocaust was terrible thing that should be condemned by the world but killing a Southerner in the Civil War was a wonderful thing that should be praised by the world.  Memorials to dead Confederates are being destroyed all over America, while new memorials to Holocaust victims are still being created

Southerners fought for what they believed in, while Jews in Europe did not.  They should have died in the streets of Berlin, Paris, and Warsaw instead of in the gas chambers of Auschwitz.  There was a one-month Ghetto Uprising in the Jewish ghetto of Warsaw, but it had relatively little effect on the Nazis or on the ghetto residents.  The Warsaw Uprising by the ethnic Poles did have an effect, but it was put down brutally by the occupying Nazis.  The advancing Soviet army waited for the Germans to put down the Warsaw Uprising and destroy almost every building in Warsaw before the Soviet troops occupied the city. 

The Holocaust was an example of some Jews’ ability to survive horrible conditions. There is a question of how many survived because they cooperated with the Nazis as “kapos,” although some survivors who did not cooperate would have known who the kapos were.  Conditions were so terrible that it is not surprising that some prisoners would have chosen to make their lives a little easier by cooperating.  But surviving Auschwitz may not always be a mark of heroism. 

It is time for the Jews to let the rest of the world move on past the Holocaust.  Israel and Jews around the world can certainly commemorate and memorialize the Holocaust but let the rest of the world get on with their lives.  Jews use it as a weapon against Americans, making Americans feel guilty for letting the Holocaust happen, for not accepting more Jewish refugees before the war, and for not invading Europe earlier to free the prisoners in the death camps.  Underlying all the talk about the Holocaust is a smoldering hatred of America and non-Jewish Americans, an accusation of cowardice against President Roosevelt and the American generals leading the war in Europe. If the Jews accuse Americans of cowardice, then I accuse the Jews who walked meekly into the gas chambers of Poland of cowardice as well.  They should have died on the streets, not in the gas chambers.   

So, Jews, please make the Holocaust a Jewish thing and don’t blame me and hate me for it.  You bear some responsibility for it, too.
