James Mageau: Against Political Kneeling

It’s time for the people of Rhode Island to demand that Governor Gina Raimondo and her left-wing colleagues explain why the white people and others in this state are expected to fall on their knees to apologize for something they did not do. Why should anyone apologize to a bunch of subversives in “Black Live Matter” who were not subjected to slavery?

Of course, there are radical left-wing crackpots who have convinced themselves that they will sleep better by conforming, but not in my house. The only person I genuflect in front of is Jesus Christ!

Why is Raimondo so willing to ignore the approximately 360,000 Union soldiers who were killed in the fight to free the slaves during the Civil War? Why are they also willing to ignore the approximately 40,000 black soldiers who were killed?

It is disgusting and irresponsible that the radicals would not respect the Republican President from that time, a white man who sacrificed his life for the African American slaves. President Abraham Lincoln was assassinated by John Wilkes Booth, a Southern sympathizer, because he freed the slaves. Now the anarchists desecrate his memorial!

Anyone responsible enough to do the research will know that “Black Lives Matter” is a Marxist subversive organization. The leader of its New York City chapter said on TV last week that if they don’t get what they want they’ll burn it down! Maybe one of the weak-kneed liberals on his/her knees apologizing for something they didn’t do will tell us what they intend to burn down!

Governor Raimondo and her Democrat colleagues’ behavior is an embarrassment! She owes an apology to every Rhode Islander of a different ethnic origin for elevating the demands of Black Lives Matter and surrendering our culture and history to them!
