Enjoy Obamacare & No Wall – But at Least the Senate Passed an Anti-Lynching Bill
It’s hard to not become infused with seething, white-hot rage at the way the Republican leadership in the House and Senate squandered 2017 and 2018.
With control of the House, Senate and White House, the Republicans had a golden opportunity to keep their promises to the American people on issues like Obamacare and building a wall on our southern border.
Instead, all we got was Obamacare with some amendments and some replacement fencing on the border.
Anytime this was mentioned to Paul Ryan, Kevin McCarthy or Mitch McConnell, the excuse was always, “Oh, well, no room on the sacred calendar. We’re working on something very complex right now. Tut tut. No time for the wall or the Obamacare repeal. Next year, though. Pinky-swear promise!”
The “calendar” excuse only holds so much water when you see how Mitch McConnell dropped everything in December to pass an anti-lynching bill in the Senate.
Keeping a six-year promise to the American voters that they would repeal Obamacare if only we voters would elect Republican majorities in the House and Senate… well, that was too complex and couldn’t fit on the calendar.
But jumping to Democrat demands that we make lynching a federal hate crime somehow fit into the calendar at a time when the Senate is always eager to run out the door for Christmas vacation – and when Republicans were about to lose control of the House.
Has there been some rash of lynching in America that we were all unaware of? Our curious nature drove us to dive into this question a little deeper.
Like with all issues where the liberal media and academia has controlled the narrative for many years, most of what you think you know about the lynching of blacks in America is a total lie. You practically need a secret decoder ring to get through the Wikipedia page on lynching.
While Democrats have always hated blacks, it turns out that Americans effectively talked them out of lynching black people on a regular basis by the end of the 1930s.
The last two recorded cases of mobs of white Democrats hanging black people to death happened in 1939 – 80 years ago.
After that, the only black person who appears to have been partially lynched by Democrats was a 19-year-old man in Alabama, in 1981.
Michael Donald was strangled with a rope, but the actual cause of death was when his Democrat kidnappers slit his throat.
Most of the extrajudicial slayings of blacks by groups of white Democrats from the 1940s through 1965 were murders that liberal academics later retconned into “lynchings.”
For example, the three civil rights workers killed in Mississippi in 1964, which sparked passage of the Civil Rights Act and later the movie Mississippi Burning, were shot to death by Democrats.
And contrary to popular belief, the most famous “lynching” of the 20th century wasn’t actually a lynching at all. 14-year-old Emmett Till was tragically beaten and shot to death in 1955 by his Democrat killers – but he wasn’t lynched.
In a hilarious example of liberals trying to control the narrative, on the day that Jussie Smollett was finally arrested by Chicago police for faking his own attempted lynching by MAGA supporters, the New York Times ran a front-page story about Emmett Till.
There was no mention of Jussie Smollett on that day’s front page, despite it being the most sensational story in the country for the previous two weeks. Sure, it’s been 64 years since Emmett Till was murdered by Democrats – but it was a slow news day. Nothing else was going on.
This is not to downplay the seriousness of lynching or to try to make light of the issue. Lynching was awful, and Democrats should definitely apologize for the all of the times that they lynched innocent blacks, due to their deep-seated hatred and racism.
Murder was already a crime that was on the books and Americans effectively talked Democrats into no longer lynching blacks, so Congress never had to bother with passing a federal law to outlaw lynching.
Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan didn’t have anything else important that they could have been doing in the last moments of a Republican majority in the House.
That’s why we still have Obamacare and no wall on our southern border. But at least Democrats now have a reminder that it’s not okay to lynch black Americans.
