WHEN IT COMES TO OUR BLINDE SUPPORT TO ISRAEL, REP. ILHAN OMAR TOOK A KNEE

 

 

The problem in this country is that Arab, Palestinian and Muslims’ suffering and grievances are mostly ignored.  Western reporters when they go to the middle east, they use  ;Thomas Friedman taxi drivers reporting style . I wonder what would they do when,  Uber introduce driverless Cars service oversea.

The art of the apology is to never say “if” or “but”, but to just admit mistakes and move on. Conservatives never apologize, their motto is the three D’s: deny, deceive and distract, and if they do, they usually blame it on the offended victims; sorry if my action/comments offended you. However, liberals can hardly wait to apologize, they believe in redemption and their ego is not as big as conservatives. When liberals apologize they don’t use “if”, they use “but”.

Last Wednesday around 9 p.m., Dylan Roof, a 21-year-old white supremacist, entered the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina. According to police, during a weekly Bible study meeting, he opened fire killing nine people. Mr. Roof’s racism and hatred toward blacks was demonstrated in his website, which was discovered Saturday. The website appears to offer the first serious look at his deep and twisted mind. A mind of lots of Americans who still think Civil War is not over and still raging on. “I hate the sight of the American flag,” he wrote. “Modern American patriotism is an absolute joke.” He enlightened us in this way as he posted a picture of himself burning, stomping and spitting on the Stars and Stripes while grasping and waving the Confederate battle flag and holding a gun.
This heartbreaking tragedy opened up a serious debate in America over the Confederate flag, raising questions about the true meaning of this subversive symbol, which haunt us until today.
