Martin Luther King Jr., an American clergyman and civil rights leader, was shot at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, Tennessee, on April 4, 1968.

He was rushed to¬†St. Joseph’s Hospital, and was pronounced dead at 7:05¬†p.m. CST. He was a prominent¬†leader¬†of the¬†Civil Rights Movement¬†and a¬†Nobel Peace Prize¬†laureate who was known for his use of¬†nonviolence¬†and¬†civil disobedience.

MLK52

Martin Luther King Jr.¬†(January 15, 1929¬†‚Äď April 4, 1968) was an American¬†Baptist¬†minister and activist who became the most visible spokesperson and leader in the¬†civil rights movement¬†from 1954 through 1968.

He is best known for his role in the advancement of civil rights by using the tactics of nonviolence and civil disobedience based on his Christian beliefs and inspired by the nonviolent activism of Mahatma Gandhi.

King led the 1955 Montgomery bus boycott and in 1957 became the first president of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC). With the SCLC, he led an unsuccessful 1962 struggle against segregation in Albany, Georgia, and helped organize the nonviolent 1963 protests in Birmingham, Alabama.

He also helped organize the 1963¬†March on Washington, where he delivered his famous “I Have a Dream” speech.

IT’S GETTING WORSE DAY BY DAY

Any American who has a shred of intelligence, love of country and stability, knows that there is something way wrong going on in the United States.

The problem starts at the ‘head’ of the country.

Literally in his ‘head’.

Listen to this video with an open mind and face the truth.

The Turd Truck president begins in nine days from today

Needless to say, President Obama has made friends and fans in plenty places.

His video thanking President Obama is a ‘must watch’.

Trae Crowder, the Liberal Redneck, wants to thank Obama – literally – for what he accomplished during his presidency

Look, he ain’t perfect. But I’m fully confident that history will favor him, particular as compared to the sentient tire fires that have bookended his presidency.

Goddamn, going from Bush to Obama to Trump is like having leukemia, it goes into remission, and then you get back in the gym, and slowly but surely, over years and years, you build your strength back up, you’re putting weight on, and you’re getting healthy again and everything, and then right when everything’s going good, you know, and you can almost Рalmost Рsee your abs, you get hit by a fucking truck made out of turds.

bline

Trae Crowder is an American comedian and co-writer of The Liberal Redneck Manifesto: Draggin’ Dixie Outta the Dark.

After business school, Crowder worked for the Department of Energy for six years.

In 2010, Crowder got his start as a stand up comedian following an open mic night at Side Splitters comedy club in Knoxville, Tennessee. It was after this that he evolved his main character, described as: The Liberal Redneck. His trademark comedic monologues have garnered both controversy and cumulative views now in the millions on YouTube. After his Liberal Redneck videos went viral, he appeared on a number of television and radio shows.

ctrump

In June 2016, Crowder began a stint as the official “Hillbilly-in-Chief” for the New York Daily News where he posts his politically-oriented videos for the newspaper’s YouTube channel.

On November 11, 2016, Crowder was a guest on the HBO series, Real Time with Bill Maher, where he discussed his book and gave his “redneck” take on the 2016 presidential election, held three days earlier.¬†On January 1, 2017, Crowder publicly announced through his Twitter account, “My wife’s packin our butter tubs for our move to LA. I’ll be workin on my @FOXTV sitcom Skeew!”

He is currently on the WellRED Comedy Tour with fellow comedians and writing partners Drew Morgan and Corey Ryan Forrester.

Something to think about ‚Ķ. ‚ÄúMake America White Again? …. Why?


WhiteNATRad

~~September 4, 2016~~ 

AMERICA WASN’T WHITE INITIALLY

This country has never been ALL white!

The degree of obvious racism and white supremacy sentiment, which has always been hiding in the wings of this society, has come forth and continued to grow.

Mexicans, Muslims, Latinos  and many other people of color have been the target of plenty vitriolic comments.

When whites arrived in this country, they had to “dispose” of the “red man”.

The policies of this belief have continued undaunted.

The current political climate has done nothing to stop it.

It reminds me of “Manifest Destiny”.

It seems to me that ‘the way’ has been lost!

MANIFEST DESTINY

In the 19th century, manifest destiny was a widely held belief in the United States that its settlers were destined to expand across North America.

Historians broadly agree that there are three basic themes to manifest destiny:

The special virtues of the American people and their institutions
The mission of the United States to redeem and remake the west in the image of agrarian America
An irresistible destiny to accomplish this essential duty

Historian Frederick Merk says this concept was born out of “a sense of mission to redeem the Old World by high example … generated by the potentialities of a new earth for building a new heaven”.

During the months of June 2016, a Donald Trump-inspired congressional candidate has sparked outrage by plastering “Make America White Again” on billboards in eastern Tennessee.

Rick Tyler, an Independent running in the 3rd District that includes the city of Chattanooga, almost immediately started catching hell for his racist spin on the presumptive Republican presidential candidate’s slogan, “Make America Great Again.”

THE LAW OF THE LAND

A historic day which I remember very clearly.

I was sitting in my office, scrolling through Facebook when the first meme/graph related to the decision of the Supreme Court came down.

Marriage equality was the “law of the land“.

I remember thinking that this was only the beginning.

There was a lot more to get done.

This was the first step and we had many more to take.

It’s said that the longest journey starts with the first step and there we were.

Pride was all arround.

Since this momentous day, the backlash has been incredible.

As noted below many anti LGBT bills have been introduced in several states.

The culmination was the Orlando Pulse shooting which claimed the lives of 49 members of the LGBT community.

Can’t rest on our laurels, the mission continues.

#LoveWins: Celebrating One Year of Marriage Equality in America

In a historic 5-4 ruling exactly a year ago, the Supreme Court of the United States ruled that bans on marriage for same-sex couples are unconstitutional, paving the way for nationwide marriage equality.

Two years prior, rulings in the historic Supreme Court cases United States v. Windsor and Hollingsworth v. Perry struck down Section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act and brought marriage equality back to California, respectively, laying the groundwork for Obergefell v. Hodges to make marriage equality the law of the land in all 50 states.

In 2016 alone, more than 200 anti-LGBTQ bills have been introduced in 34 states. HRC has been on the ground fighting back against these dangerous pieces of legislation. While most have been defeated, five of those hateful bills (one in North Carolina, Tennessee and Kansas and two in Mississippi) have become law.

Tragically, those who lost their lives in the Orlando attack two weeks ago demonstrate why our battle against hatred and violence is so important to the LGBTQ community.

As we honor and celebrate this historic day, we must recommit ourselves to ending discrimination against LGBTQ people and help realize a world that achieves fundamental fairness and equality for all.

ANTI-LGBT COUNSELING BILL

This is all a jumble,fumble of legal jargon.

Basically it’s an overt trampling of a group of citizens, in this great country, who simply are “different”. Different because others make them so.

The big kahunas, who live in some of the houses of law, elected by their constituents, are writing, reviewing and passing these draconian laws. These laws are stripping away basic rights of members of the LGBT community in their states.

At the time of this writing, these are the states, which I’m aware, have passed these laws, are attempting to and may be back pedaling now”

North Carolina

Mississippi

Tennessee

South Carolina

I’m afraid others will follow suit.

At least, some people have strongly come forward to clearly state that this can’t be allowed.

I’m waiting for the President to weigh in on this.

Not holding my breath, though.

Rachel Maddow explained the current situation in some of the listed states and speaks with Joel Ebert, political reporter for The Tennessean, trying to decipher what is going on.

Take a look.

Tennessee Passes Anti-LGBT Counseling Bill
Mental health professionals would be allowed to reject LGBT patients based on ‚Äúsincerely held principles.‚ÄĚ

Tennessee legislators on Monday, April 11, 2016,  passed a bill that could jeopardize access to mental health treatment for LGBT individuals, part of a string of recent anti-LGBT legislation in the South.

The GOP-sponsored bill, which now goes to Gov. Bill Haslam (R), allows therapists and counselors to reject patients they feel would violate ‚Äúsincerely held principles.‚ÄĚ

Gay rights and mental health advocacy groups have protested the bill and urge Haslam to veto it because it could permit mental health professionals to discriminate against LGBT patients without legal liability.

The bill passed by the legislature is a more discriminatory version of legislation approved earlier this year. That measure stated that therapists and counselors could turn away patients based on ‚Äúsincerely held beliefs.‚Ä̬†The state House last week passed a version that expanded grounds for shunning patients to ‚Äúprinciples,‚ÄĚ which the Senate approved on Monday.

What The Media Need To Know About Tennessee’s New Anti-LGBT Bill

Here’s what the media need to know about this unprecedented law.

On April 11, the Tennessee legislature passed HB 1840. The bill allows private practice therapists and counselors to reject patients if their ‚Äúgoals, outcomes, or behaviors‚ÄĚ would violate the ‚Äúsincerely held principles‚ÄĚ of the provider. The bill now goes to Gov. Bill Haslam (R), who has yet to indicate whether he will sign it into law.

This Isn‚Äôt A Typical ‚ÄúReligious Freedom‚ÄĚ Bill
