FIRST THEY CAME

This poem is timeless and immemorial. It is so ‘on point’ that is has been used frequently to describe current happenings.

A friend sent me this site and a link to this modern adaptation. It’s befitting to the current reality of the nation.

All credit given to site, author and poet.

Martin Niemöller (1892–1984) was a prominent Protestant pastor who emerged as an outspoken public foe of Adolf Hitler and spent the last seven years of Nazi rule in concentration camps.

Niemöller is perhaps best remembered for the quotation:

FIRST THEY CAME

~Wikipedia~

GoldSwirl

“The famous poem by an anti-Nazi pastor, rewritten for Donald Trump’s America”

To see Donald Trump methodically lay into one group after another during the months of the presidential campaign has been to see Niemöller’s warning writ large across our screens.

But during all these months, I haven’t noticed much speaking out by one group in support of another.

It’s time for everyone to remember Niemöller’s words, and speak out in support of anyone who becomes the target of this hate-monger and his alt-right cohorts.

At the end of the day, Trump is coming for all of us.

DESPACITO

Yesterday I posted information about this hit single and included the music video. Since then I have found plenty of covers and parodies.

This is one which is very special.

To think that this song is covered by 2Cellos!!

Amazing!

Despacito” (English: “Slowly”) is a single by Puerto Rican pop artist Luis Fonsi featuring Puerto Rican rapper Daddy Yankee from the former’s upcoming studio album.

On January 13, 2017, Universal Music Latin released “Despacito” and its music video, which shows both artists performing the song in the La Perla neighborhood of Old San Juan, Puerto Rico and the local bar La Factoría.

The song was written by Luis Fonsi, Erika Ender and Daddy Yankee, and was produced by Andrés Torres and Mauricio Rengifo

There are countless versions and parodies of the Billboard Hot 100 chart-topper “Despacito” up on YouTube in every language. But this instrumental version by 2Cellos may be the most impressive yet.

The duo’s Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser covers the Latin hit with no accompaniment whatsoever, alternating their cellos through the melodic lines, rhythmic bass and percussion patterns of “Despacito” effortlessly.

The video, shot in what appears to be a storage room, ends with a rousing sing-along with Sulic and Hauser showing off their vocal chops after killing it on the strings.

INDEPENDENCE AND DIFFERENT AMERICANS 

Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness” is a well-known phrase in the United States Declaration of Independence.

The phrase gives three examples of the “unalienable rights” which the Declaration says have been given to all human beings by their Creator, and which governments are created to protect.

We don’t have to go back to Frederick Douglass’ time or race.

Just look at the current reality in this nation.

African Americans, Muslims, Latinos, Asians and other minorities aren’t totally free and equal.

They aren’t really equal in the eyes of the countrymen.

It won’t be getting any better any time soon!

What is there to celebrate?

On June 4, 1776, the Declaration of Independence was signed, marking the colonists’ independence from Great Britain

July 4th celebrations remind some Black Americans of America’s sordid racial past.
By Elizabeth Flock, Staff Writer

(July 5, 2012)

But some 75 years later, some black Americans weren’t ready to celebrate.

Abolitionist movement leader Frederick Douglass gave a scathing speech the day after Independence Day in 1852, saying:

“This Fourth of July is yours, not mine.

You may rejoice, I must mourn. Do you mean, citizens, to mock me, by asking me to speak to-day?”

Douglass reminded listeners that when the Declaration of Independence was signed, many blacks were still slaves. Even the British were more likely to offer freedom to blacks than the colonists.
Fast forward to 2012 and 2017, where many Black Americans still remember Douglass’ sentiments.

Gay Pride or LGBT Pride is the positive stance against discrimination and violence toward lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people to promote their self-affirmation, dignity, equality rights, increase their visibility as a social group, build community, and celebrate sexual diversity and gender variance.

Pride, as opposed to shame and social stigma, is the predominant outlook that bolsters most LGBT rights movements throughout the world.

STONEWALL UPRISING

~HONORING THOSE BRAVE SOULS WHO CAME BEFORE ME~

I was a teenager at this time.

I was barely 18 going on 19.

I wasn’t sure about my sexuality yet I knew I was different. I was living in Puerto Rico and cut away from these happenings in New York.

With time, I have come to learn about the importance of this uprising and I honor those who came before me and cleared the way that allowed me to accept and cherish my sexuality and live a fulfilling life, the way I am …

for I was born this way!

Forty-eight years ago today, New York City police began harassing LGBTQ patrons of the Stonewall Inn simply for congregating, those patrons decided they’d had enough.

~Human Rights Campaign~

The Stonewall Riots (also referred to as the Stonewall Uprising or the Stonewall Rebellion) were a series of spontaneous, violent demonstrations by members of the gay (LGBT) community against a police raid that took place in the early morning hours of June 28, 1969, at the Stonewall Inn, located in the Greenwich Village neighborhood of Manhattan, New York City.

They are widely considered to constitute the single most important event leading to the gay liberation movement and the modern fight for LGBT rights in the United States.

APPEASEMENT

“Let the country burn now rather than turn the fire out now!”

BLine

~DEFINITION~

To make concessions to (someone, such as an aggressor or a critic) often at the sacrifice of principles

Synonyms
conciliation, placation, concession, pacification, propitiation, reconciliation; fence-mending

~Wikipedia~

BLineGFireBLine

There’s no reason to continue on the bandwagon of appeasing this ‘little, orange man-child‘.

It’s time to stand up and call things are they are.

No more alternate facts, no more alternate universe.

The emperor is indeed naked and we all see it. 

The nation, Republican legislators, the sycophantic base, the elected Democrats, the media and some others may be added.

There are secondary gains for those who hold this position. The country is burning and they are waiting for a better position down the road.

“Resist … because these people are not going to do it for you!”

I feel this is important information about what is happening in the Republican Administration lead by Drumpf and what we need to be aware of.

Keith Olbermann series called “The Resistance” continues.

He has posted installment #91.

The video speaks for itself.

If this resonates with you, good.

If it doesn’t, just scroll away to the next blog.

Thank you!
