Texas Independence Day

Celebrating the 185th anniversary of Texas Independence and the fall of the Alamo. With one little problem, the attempted canceling of the whole enterprise by the chief historian of Texas State Historical Association.

“Walter Buenger, Ph.D. and TSHA chief historian, recently slammed the Alamo as an insignificant battle then and a monument to white supremacy now. The facts don’t support that at all.”

Secession?

Rush Limbaugh on how different the red and blue states are:

“There cannot be a peaceful coexistence of two completely different theories of life, theories of government, theories of how we manage our affairs. We can’t be in this dire a conflict without something giving somewhere along the way.”

Austin murder rate leads the nation

Not in raw numbers, but Austin’s homicide rate has increased about 64%. And that’s tops, says an analysis by the Wall Street Journal.

“Thanks to ‘defund the police’ and the Democrat cities going along with it, violent crime including homicide is surging in most of America’s largest cities. While the raw numbers are terrible for Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, and other very large cities, it’s Austin, Texas, that’s leading by percentage-increase year over year.”

Because some lives don’t matter

Protesters Spell Out ‘Love’ With Burning Homes And Businesses

Murderous BLM

I didn’t see it coming, the perpetual racisms of the week, however fake or laughable, that kept on piling up in recent years. The Smollett hoax, among them. Leading to what we have now, the murderous Black Lives Matter.

They are the rioters, the looters, the burners. Antifa is small potatoes, comparatively. Mere anarchists. BLM are self-declared Marxists, full-on communists. Who, despite having the perfect whining name, couldn’t care less about black lives. Defunding the police, for instance, will be worst for black neighborhoods, which already are crime-ridden. See Chicago.

I like Watters’ World

For years I avoided the common taters on Fox news, but lately I have been partaking and some of them are quite interesting, even compelling. Such as Jesse Watters of Watters’ World. He’s a good video editor too. Hey, he even promoted personal fireworks on the 4th, when most cities outlaw them. Cool.

UPDATE:  L.A. took notice, firing thousands of Roman candles into the air instead of at the police, as occurred elsewhere.

Morning of destruction

You were (so far) relatively safe if you lived in southwest Minneapolis. Otherwise…700 buildings were damaged, burned or destroyed. How many livelihoods?

“Cities like Minneapolis will struggle for years to overcome the destruction of these riots…Rioters burned down the very club where George Floyd had worked. They also wreaked havoc on the local community, black and white alike…It is absolutely heinous that speaking out about this destruction is considered anathema on the left.”

Which is why we don’t often see a map of the scale of the destruction, except on very bold media, like the Federalist, which NBC and Google are coincidentally (?) trying to shut down.
