Political Crazy: Censure, $20 Bill, And D.C. Wall

Three different pieces of crazy. Let’s start with

Putting Harriet Tubman on the $20 Bill Is Not a Sign of Progress. It’s a Sign of Disrespect

The Biden Administration announced its plan to return to an Obama-era initiative to put Harriet Tubman’s face on the U.S. $20 bill. Her image would replace Andrew Jackson, the notoriously racist President, known both for owning hundreds of slaves and for his brutal and genocidal policy of Indian removal. Based on current designs, a statue of Jackson would remain on the back of the bill, while Harriet Tubman would grace the front. Many Americans, across the racial spectrum, are excited about this tribute to Tubman. They view it as progress, as a necessary and long overdue disruption of the American Founding Fathers narrative. I do not.

I know in a country that worships at the altar of capitalism–an economic system made possible by the free Black labor procured through the Transatlantic slave trade–a Black woman’s face on our currency seems like the highest honor we could bestow. But what a stunning failure of imagination. Putting Tubman on legal tender, when slaves in the U.S. were treated as fungible commodities is a supreme form of disrespect. The imagery of her face changing hands as people exchange cash for goods and services evokes for me discomfiting scenes of enslaved persons being handed over as payment for white debt or for anything white slaveholders wanted. America certainly owes a debt to Black people, but this is not the way to repay it.

You just can’t win. Now it’s a case of wondering whether this become the big view of the SJWs.

Capitol Police Chief: U.S. Capitol Needs ‘Permanent’ Wall to Protect Congress

The United States Capitol needs a “permanent” security wall around it to protect members of Congress, Acting U.S. Capitol Police (USCP) Chief Yogananda Pittman says.

In a statement on Thursday, Pittman said the security at the Capitol building must include a “permanent fencing” barrier — a similar barrier to the one halted by President Joe Biden’s administration at the U.S.-Mexico border.

“As I noted earlier this week, even before September 11, 2001, security experts argued that more needed to be done to protect the U.S. Capitol,” Pittman said in a statement. “In fact, a 2006 security assessment specifically recommended the installation of a permanent perimeter fence around the Capitol.”

You just know that the Democrats are going to approve of this, right? They love walls to protect themselves, but, not the border.

And here’s the kicker

Senators are working on a bipartisan resolution to censure Trump as it becomes more likely he’ll be acquitted in impeachment trial

Democratic Sen. Tim Kaine of Virginia said on Wednesday that he’s drafted a censure resolution against former President Donald Trump.

Kaine told reporters that there “maybe a little more interest now” in a censure resolution after an overwhelming majority of Republican senators hinted on Tuesday they are likely not going to convict Trump in an impeachment trial. GOP Sen. Rand Paul argued on Tuesday to dismiss the trial, claiming that it goes against the Constitution as Trump has already left office. He was joined by 44 Republicans, including Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, who voted to declare Trump’s impeachment unconstitutional. The motion ultimately failed as 55 senators, including five Republicans, voted to kill it.

If the Democrats had been smart that would have done this to start with. But, they’re unhinged, so, now it’s on to Plan B.

    Yahoo news needs to be renamed WooWooWoo news.

    It’s all opinion, and hallucinogen-induced opinion at that.

    • There are days where I look at it and wonder why I do it to myself, especially on celeb stuff and TikTok insanity. I ran across one on their front page about a Big TikTok hack for great eyelashes as I was scrolling, and, literally, people were obsessed and freaking out about….commercially available glue on eyelashes. People are weird.

    “All members of Congress, their staffs, and anyone who works in the U.S. Capitol complex should be able to work in a safe and secure environment.“

    Well…

    Shouldn’t everyone…everywhere…have the right to work, operate a business or exercise their First Amendment rights in a safe and secure environment, shielded from the violent acts and intentions of true domestic terrorists and insurrectionists?

    Like antifa and blm and the U.S. Congress and Joey B?

    I do not understand the Demofascists resistance to a border wall. I understand why drug cartels, sex traffickers, terrorists, MS-13, smugglers, criminals and people looking for free-bees don’t want a border wall but what is the Demofascists excuse?

    At the same time I don’t understand the hysteria (again) over the wall and such for the Capitol. If they are afraid or insecure then they are to blame. Learn to live with it. We do. They had one little riot and they are like terrified pussies. Millions of us have lived in cities that are being burned by insurrectionists, traitors and terrorist BLM/Antifa mobs daily for MONTHS and the Congress does NOTHING.

    The protesters didn’t even get within sight of any Congressman and they are acting like their lives were in danger. I seem to recall back in 1983 the “May 19th Communist Organization” set off a bomb IN THE SENATE specifically to kill Republicans. Some commie klunt named Susan Rosenberg was arrested for the bombing but CLINTON PARDONED HER!!!!! Now the terrorist bitch is doing fund raising for BLM. Can you believe this shit? And fools like Elwood call a group of protesters “insurrectionists” and such for breaking a few windows. Fuk these hypocrite bastards.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      The 1983 bombing injured no one and was not intended to injure anyone. Ms Rosenberg was charged for an explosives violation and her sentence was commuted (not pardoned) after serving 16 years.

      The insurrectionists that the pussy Kye ignores killed an officer and tried to overthrow the government. Would 16 years be appropriate?

      • drowningpuppies says:

        The 1983 bombing injured no one and was not intended to injure anyone.

        The little lyin’ pussy Rimjob shamelessly trying to rewrite history again ignoring all the other bombings in which Rosenberg was involved.

          Does the lil lyin’ cumguppie agree that the 600 or so who stormed and ransacked the Capitol should serve 16 years in prison?

          What about those who murdered Officer Sicknick? Those on video who assaulted the other officers? Is 16 years enough?

          All those involved in the 1980s bombings served time. Should all the insurrectionists who tried to overturn an election also spend time in prison? If not, why not? Because you think they’re “patriots”? LOL

          • the American junta says:

            You always devolve into stupid nonsense and ridiculous hyperbole. You’re so predictable. Leftists ALWAYS have to dial their “rage” to eleven.

            Your hatred for us is your endearing feature. We know we’re right the more shit you shovel.

            Of course when you stoop to stealing elections like a common fascist criminal from South America the banana republic attitude becomes understandable.

            A lying, corrupt follower for a lying corrupt fake president. Figures.

      • Jl says:

        “It wasn’t intended to injure anyone”. Are you still a mind-reader?

        • Elwood P. Dowd says:

          The explosion occurred at 11 PM and a call was placed beforehand warning of the bomb. No one was injured.

          The Jan 6 right-wing attack on the US Capitol occurred at precisely the time Congress was in session to certify Mr Biden’s victory over trump. Coincidence? The hundreds of terrorists were chanting “Where’s Nancy?” and “Hang Mike Pence!” The terrorists murdered Capitol Officer, Brian Sicknick. Dozens of other officers were injured, some seriously.

          Rosenberg served 16 yrs in federal prison. What would be appropriate for those that damaged the Capitol on Jan 6?

          • drowningpuppies says:

            There he goes again.
            The little lyin’ pussy Rimjob equating Rosenberg and her fellow terrorists who actually detonated numerous bombs with the mostly peaceful protestors demonstrating at the Capitol.

            Pathetic.

            Lil CumGuzzler ignores the obvious in his fealty to the seditious tRump.

            Actually tRump and his mob are more of a threat than Susan Rosenberg ever was, dumbass.

            The US gov’t OPPOSED the terrorist actions of Rosenberg and her fellow communists. Donald tRump ENCOURAGED the terrorist attack by thousands of violent tRump supporters. A right-wing movement that includes tRump and his supporters, right-wing media and even some Republican officials want to OVERTHROW the current US gov’t. This movement has been ignored, if not encouraged, by the nuGOP. They have cultivated fears of “replacement” and “white genocide” in weak-minded followers. And here we are, with millions of Americans unclear what is truth and what is propaganda.

            Rosenberg and her band of 6 terrorists also wanted to overthrow what they viewed as a gov’t that was too adventurous regarding foreign entanglements. She and her confederates were arrested, tried and convicted. She served 16 years for her crimes.

            16 years sounds about right for trump, as well.

          • drowningpuppies says:

            Rimjob, the little grammar nazi, can’t even spell Trump correctly.

    The fence around the capitol is a great idea. Too bad there will be gates in it. Since the telephone was invented 100 years ago, i dont know why congress even needs to meet in DC. They could all work from home.
    If the censure doesnt work, they should pass a resolution to vigorously shake their fingers at Trump.

    • david7134 says:

      Bad part is that every thing in DC is accessible via underground passages.

    • Jl says:

      Libs and fences-hard to understand. They open up the border before they open up restaurants…

      • Professor hale says:

        Not that hard to understand. The ones in charge are stuffing their pockets with cash. All the rest believed the communist agitprop and hate america.
