The Unhyphenated American
First Lady Melania Trump was booed by students when she spoke at an opioid awareness summit in Baltimore. Snowflake adults said the students were justified because Melania’s husband hurt their feelings by saying bad things about their city.
Folks, this infuriated me. I am so sick of snowflake adults who create dumbed-down, brain-dead, wimpy snowflake youths. Taught to believe they are entitled, snowflakes are unable to submit to authority or deal with the normal pressures of life; living in their parent’s basements playing video games at age 30.
As a child, I lived in the Baltimore projects. I don’t remember any neighborhood so horribly out-of-control that no one dared to venture after dark. And yet, that is the ridiculous situation in Baltimore today.
Visiting Baltimore for my dad’s funeral, it was shocking to see endless blocks of empty rundown row-houses, rats, and trash. What the heck happened to my beloved hometown once renowned as “Charm City”?
In the 1980s, Baltimore’s first black mayor, Kurt Schmoke ordered that my song “Hello Baltimore” be placed into the city’s time capsule. To illustrate Charm City’s shocking transformation, I made a using footage of recent Baltimore riots.
Back in the day, the neighborhood around Pimlico Racetrack where the Preakness Race is held was safe and upscale. Today, the Pimlico neighborhood has dramatically declined, infested with drugs and crime.
In the 1990s, I saw the beginning of the end for Baltimore because of stupid liberal Democrat policies. Park Avenue was the place to enjoy dinner at an upscale restaurant. Smelly, dirty vagrants began sleeping on the sidewalks and aggressively pestering patrons outside the beautiful restaurants. Due to the city’s commitment to political correctness, restaurant owners could do nothing to save their business. Finally, every restaurant closed or moved away.
Living in the projects as a child, I loved exploring Park Avenue . “The lights are much brighter there. You can forget all your troubles, forgot all your cares. Downtown, things’ll be great when you’re downtown. Everything’s waiting for you.” Park Avenue has become another depressed section of the city unsafe after dark.
Incredibly, liberal Democrats who run Baltimore still have not learned to be friendly to businesses. During the recent Baltimore riots the mayor ordered the and allow thugs to destroy businesses to express their frustrations regarding racial injustice. Unbelievable.
The late Democratic congressman Elijah Cummings received billions in federal grants to clean up his rat and crime-infested district. The money was . By the way, idiot black relatives of mine who live in Baltimore still praise Cummings for his wonderful service to the black community. Sorry, I had to get that off my chest.
White liberals in fake news media claim to be advocates for black empowerment. The liberal Congressional Black Caucus and the NAACP also lie about their commitment to black empowerment. These black and white liberals viciously attack anyone who dares to address problems which plague blacks in cities controlled by Democrats.
Thank God president Trump cares enough to address the problems of blacks suffering in Democrat urban plantations. Therefore, I don’t give a rat’s derriere about the hurt feelings of spoiled-brat snowflake youths, upset because Trump told the truth about their cesspool city run by corrupt Democrats. Adults who defended the students for booing our first lady are a part of our nation’s morally bankrupt and wimpy culture. They should be ashamed of themselves.
This hypersensitivity to “hurt feelings” turns my stomach. For crying out loud, adults need to start instructing wimpy youths to grow a spine.
World War II-era Americans are turning over in their graves in disgust of this new generation of snowflake Americans. My black dad passed away at age 90. When my brother was a teen, he quit his summer job because his boss hurt his feelings by yelling at him.
Dad could hardly believe his ears. Annoyed at my brother, Dad said, “He hurt your feelings? Boy, you had better go back and get your job!” Dad was teaching my brother to be a man!
As a black civil rights pioneer in the Merchant Marines and Baltimore City Fire Department, Dad endured all kinds of humiliation and hurt feelings. But Dad knew a man has to do what a man has to do. He had a wife and five kids to feed. His hurt feelings were irrelevant.
To restore our youths, we need to have zero tolerance for all this hypersensitivity, wimpiness, and entitlement that liberals have instilled in our youths.
A snowflake reading this article will probably say, “Lloyd, you sound angry. I feel triggered. Your toxic masculinity makes me feel unsafe. You should be silenced and jailed.”
Can you imagine what a nightmare it would be if a snowflake ever became president?
Thank God president Trump is a real man.
In 1969, I was drafted into the Army and stationed at Ft Bragg, North Carolina. I remember a discussion in our room in the barracks in which white draftees Perkins and Carter ranted about America. “This f***ing country is so f***ed up. I would never bring a child into this f***ing country!”I was the black guy from the Baltimore projects amid our trio of hippies. While I knew America had problems, I did not hate or view my country as evil. What were these guys from upper-middle-class families so angry about?
Little did I know that the likes of Perkins and Carter would infiltrate government, Hollywood, and academia, creating a generation poisoned against their country.
Baby-boomer hippies have created an army of SJW (social-justice-warrior) zombies infected with hatred for America more extreme than they anticipated. Like movies in which a mad scientist loses control of his monster, old hippies have lost control of their SJW monsters. SJW zombies seek to eat the brains of all who do not have vitriolic hatred for America, capitalism, Christianity, gun-owners, free speech, normal Americans, and straight white men.
SJWs scored a huge victory when SCOTUS outrageously awarded civil rights to sexual behavior. The ruling empowered SJWs to declare war on normal. Backed by government, SJWs punish anyone whose conscience prevents them from surrendering to the LGBTQ agenda. SJWs 12 new perversions, which include pedophilia and bestiality. They say opposing deviant behavior is bigotry, hate, and discrimination.
SJWs have added the word “triggered”to their lexicon. Speaking opinions about women, race, homosexuality, and transgenderism that SJWs do not like “triggers”them; justifying them physically beating the crap out of you. Obesity has been added to SJWs’ list of things they no longer allow us to speak the truth about. A study cited obesity as a cause of cancer. SJWs attacked the study, calling it fat-phobic, bigotry and hate speech. SJWs want to repeal our constitutional right to free speech, empowering them to throw you into jail for whatever they declare “hate speech.”
When hippies like Perkins and Carter took over public education decades ago, they banned free speech and free thinking. Consequently, SJWs are programmed to “cancel”anyone who dares to behave or think on their own.
For example: A photo of black actor, Michael B. Jordan, was of him vacationing on a yacht in Italy. SJW zombies went ballistic because all the women on the yacht were white. They launched a vitriolic campaign to “cancel”Jordan; attempting to end his career. SJW zombies tried to cancel a student for her Asian-influenced prom dress, calling her dress oppressive, bigotry, and “cultural appropriation.”
While schadenfreude is not good, I feel vindicated hearing extreme leftist comedians complain that SJWs are out-of-control. Comics say they are forbidden to joke about anything that has negatively impacted their careers.
Democratic congresswomen Ilhan Omar, AOC, Rashida Tlaib and Ayanna Pressley are poster girls for the horrific consequence of hippies dominating Hollywood and public education. These four SJWs seek to overthrow leftist Nancy Pelosi as House majority leader. They believe Pelosi is not on board with their party’s move to the far left, passionately committed to an anti-American, socialist/communist agenda.
SJWs believe the entire planet is victimized by America and straight white men. Therefore, illegals have moral authority to invade our country. Women and minorities should not be held accountable for bad behavior. Vagrants in California have a right to create obstacle courses of piles of poop on the streets.
California’s proposition 47 allows theft of up to $950 per day without it being a felony. Law enforcement says why bother arresting criminals for misdemeanors when they will be released back on the streets within hours? . Gee, I wonder why?
Quoting Dickens, “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.”In the midst of all this out-of-control SJW craziness, I see evidence of young people recognizing and rejecting it. Movies like Terminator: Dark Fate which promote SJW political correctness have bombed at the box office.
A minister said whenever he hears “impeachment,”in his mind, he hears “crucify him!”This minister has an excellent point. Despite all the for America, SJW zombies are essentially screaming, “crucify him!”SJWs dominated fake news media for two weeks with their kangaroo court impeachment hearings. Incredibly, Trump’s
Everyone knows the way to stop a zombie is to shoot him in the head. Young people are fed up. They are bravely shooting SJW zombies between the eyes with logic, truth, and common sense.
Winston Churchill said, “If you are not a liberal at twenty, you have no heart. If you are not a conservative at forty, you have no brain.”I wonder what my old hippie Army buddies, Perkins and Carter, think about walking-brain-dead SJW zombies terrorizing America today.
A rabbi once said that one of the reasons why Jews have prospered despite being the most persecuted people on the planet is that Jews never view themselves as victims. This powerful truth hit me like a ton of bricks. From as far back as I can remember, Democrats have deceived blacks by drilling the lie into their heads that they are victims of eternally racist America.
Insidiously, Democrats continue to sell blacks the lie that America is a hellhole of racism in which Republicans and conservatives are obsessed with conceiving ways to keep blacks down. Consequently, far too many blacks absurdly believe a majority of Americans (Trump voters) are white supremacists and their only hope of keeping them at bay is to continue voting for Democrats.
As a child, I instinctively knew Democrats were scamming blacks. When I was around nine years old, my parents and three younger siblings moved from a leaky roofed ghetto to a new 11-story government project in Baltimore. Everything was brand new, kitchen appliances and so on. Extremely excited, we were among the first families in the building of all-black residents. Within a short time, that building became a huge ghetto. The elevators were routinely out of service due to vandalism. Our apartment was on the 6th floor. Entering the pitch-black stairwell to walk up to our apartment was like walking into the shadow of death, as the sound of stepping on broken wine bottles echoed off the concrete walls. I suspect my fellow residents were Democrats. They believed every problem was always the fault of white racism.
At nine years old, I sarcastically said, “How can we stop mean white people from sneaking into our building at night, breaking light bulbs in the stairwells, peeing, breaking the elevators and smashing wine bottles?”Even at that young age, commonsense told me whitey was not responsible for problems we could fix ourselves.
In my mid-twenties, I again noticed the devastating negative consequences of Democrats infecting blacks with victim mindsets. I became a born-again Christian. Excited about my new life in Jesus, I began visiting reform schools and prisons sharing how Jesus changed my life. Shockingly, the majority of the inmates were young black men. Many were gifted and talented. Their glaring problem was not white racism, but hopeless victim mindsets instilled into them by Democrats. I repeatedly heard, “Why even try when whitey has systemically stacked the deck against you?”
Blacks today do not know that the Democratic party has become the home of socialists, communists, progressives, and anti-Americanism. All Democrats care about is furthering their anti-God agenda. The folks they claim to advocate for (minorities, women and LGBTQ) are nothing more than useful idiots. Democrats want blacks hating their country. This is why Democrats say all black success is despite America’s rabid racism.
Americans are good, fair-minded people. This is why white America elected Obama, the first black president, exempting him from the normal vetting process. It is unarguable that white America elected Obama because blacks are only 12% of the population. Hidden by his black skin exterior, Obama was the socialists/progressives’ to further their godless, anti-American agenda. White Americans naively assumed that electing a black president would finally end their being branded racist. They had no idea that Democrats would exploit Obama’s skin color, using it as a bludgeon to force their agenda down the throats of Americans.
Anyone who dared to speak out against Obama’s numerous unconstitutional executive orders was immediately attacked, high-tech beaten, and lynched in the public square, an “r”branded on their forehead for being a racist.
My conservative, self-reliant, the-world-does-not-owe-me-anything mindset came from my parents. Particularly my dad, the late Dr. Rev. Lloyd E Marcus. In 1952, the ban was lifted, allowing blacks to take the civil service test. Dad passed the test and became a Baltimore City firefighter. White firefighters at Engine 6 resented Dad and treated him like scum. Dad was assigned separate eating utensils, restroom and sleeping area. He could not even pour himself a cup of coffee from the same coffeepot as the whites.
Whenever the humiliation become too overwhelming, Dad retreated to the storage room to pray and read his Bible. Mean-spirited firefighters named the storage room, “Marcus’ Chapel.”Dad courageously endured because he had a wife and four kids to feed and knew he was a trailblazer.
Rather than wallowing in a victim mindset, Dad chose to represent Jesus by striving to be excellent. Dad won Firefighter of the Year two times, also winning respect and lifelong friendships with white firefighters. He went on to became Baltimore’s first black paramedic and fire department chaplain. Dad competed with whites for Firefighter of the Year without the Democrats’ insulting demands that standards be lowered to compensate for his skin color.
I hate that Democrats always send blacks the message that they are victims, repeatedly demanding lowered standards and special concessions. For example: Democrats say that being required to present a photo ID to vote disenfranchises blacks. This is extremely insulting. In essence, Democrats are saying unlike other Americans, blacks are too stupid to acquire a photo ID, which is absurd. You need a photo ID to cash a check, board an airplane, and countless other transactions. And yet, far too many blacks view this attack on their intelligence as Democrats advocating for them.
The true evil goal of Democrats is not to empower blacks neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson, former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, and businessman extraordinaire Herman Cain. The success of these blacks pokes a huge hole in Democrats’ lie that blacks can only succeed in racist America via Democrats’ intervention and lowered standards.
Tragically, blacks have voted monolithically for Democrats for 60 years with nothing to show for it. Baltimore, Washington D.C., Chicago, and every other city controlled by Democrats are hellholes of black misery; , out-of-wedlock births (fatherless households), high incarceration, , and school dropouts. And yet, Democrats are still deceiving blacks with their tired old lie that every issue plaguing black Americans is the result of white racism.
My stomach turned upon hearing Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren promising to end environmental racism. I thought, “Here we go again with another Democrat attempting to fill blacks with more victim nonsense while trashing America, claiming that even the weather in the U.S. victimizes blacks.”
As the rabbi stated, viewing oneself as a victim is not empowering. It weakens you.
President Trump is the best thing for blacks since sliced bread. Under Trump, black unemployment is at an . The record of Trump’s extraordinary business career is filled with examples of advocating for and hiring blacks.
For decades, I pleaded with the GOP to make a strong effort to reach out to black voters. The cynical response was, “Why bother? African-Americans will always vote for Democrats no matter what we do.”My retort was, “Republicans have a moral duty to counter Democrats’ destructive lies by taking the truth about America’s greatness to black communities.”Trump is the in my lifetime to seriously and sincerely court black voters.
Branding Trump as a racist is yet another evil Democrat lie to steer blacks away from a Republican who has their best interests at heart, implementing policies beneficial to them.
Unlike the Democratic party, the Republican party does not treat me like a poor inferior child in need of constant government intervention.
Folks, the bottom line is America is the greatest land of opportunity on the planet for all who choose to go for their dreams! This inspiring truth is as repulsive to Democrats as showing Dracula the cross.
