By states that were majority controlled by Democrats sent to a house that had a majority controlled by Democrats accepting of these statues. Think the bill should go further. Maybe it's time the Democrats changed. Name of their party. It may be desperate. To pretend they're party has progressed from their days. Supporting slavery, pushing Jim Crow laws. Supporting the KKK. Republicans play the Democrats game on the Democrats field with the Democrat referees, enforcing the Democrat rules and wonder why they lose all the time. Constantly on defense constantly letting them pick the marriage or the decide the the rules of the game. Decide the narrative. Racist racism. What? Uh, I am not You are. Is that effective? Does that work politically? Well, I'm not racist. You're racist. What if and hear me out here. What if we're all too obsessed with race anyway? What if this racial obsession in this country is deeply deeply unhealthy in a gigantic distraction from the fact the worst people in the country still have power? They're not only keeping power, they're gaining more of it all while pitting one citizen against the other because of skin color. What if race is a gigantic distraction, and Republicans are falling for it once again, stop playing defense. And the next time they demand that you tear down a monument tear down this monument of Thomas Jefferson. I demand you tear it down. The response is not well. Okay? I What if we just cover it from from nine PM till six am, then it is the correct response when the Communists demand things of you. Is to double down on everything they hate. Oh, you want me to tear down my statue of Thomas Jefferson? Actually, I think I'll put lights around it So it's lit up 24 hours a day and I just put something in the budget to build 10 more of them. One of them is right outside your home. That's my response to your demands. Stop playing defense, start giving it back to these people.
