Liberals are “Green Book” With Envy January 12, 2019

Liberals are simply insane. I pray that this insanity will be their ultimate demise but that is for another post.

I just saw “Green Book”. It’s a period piece that tells the story of a white, Italian mobster wanna-be who’s hired to drive and protect a black musician while on a concert tour of the deep south.  The movie is based on the true story of pianist Don Shirley’s eight- week concert tour leading up to Christmas in 1962.

I had never heard of Shirley or the Green Book, an actual publication for blacks, that advertised where it was safe for them to eat and sleep in towns throughout the segregated South.

The movie begins by establishing the characters through well-crafted scenes and dialogue. Both characters are revealed to be deeply flawed but on such different levels.  Short of doing a full-blown movie review let me just say when a movie can enrage me, make me laugh and force a tear all inside 130 minutes, it was well worth the price of admission. But it was far better than that. (and the musical scenes were awesome!)

The movie’s subject touched the third rail in American culture, racism. Through this exquisitely acted feature, the tragedy of racism was exposed through the eyes of both its victims. That has set off the Libs in an attempt to destroy this movie from achieving the accolades that would corrupt their narrative.

From the movie trailer: Viggo Mortenson plays Tony Lip, a tough-talking bouncer from an Italian-American neighborhood in the Bronx. Mahershala Ali plays Dr. Don Shirley, a world-class African-American pianist in need of a driver and protection. Despite their differences, the two men soon develop an unexpected bond while confronting racism and danger in an era of segregation.

At the end of the movie (which BTW has a very “It’s A Wonderful Life” feel) we are refreshed by the knowledge that while white America sinned horribly against black America in the past, like Tony Lip, her heart has changed. Unfortunately, there are those who don’t acknowledge that.  

To reward “Green Book” with an Oscar will be rewarding what is good with humanity.

To ignore “Green Book” will be to continue hating and living with a closed heart.

An Open Letter To Mitt Romney January 2, 2019

Hey Mitt, you’re a loser. Just shut your pie hole.

You lost to Obama and Trump kicked your ass and became President.

So now you got yourself a new gig as the junior senator from Utah and it’s time to start spouting off against the President?  Your anti-Donald Trump op-ed was an act of ‘calculated political treachery’ against my President and the conservatism I stand for.

You attack the President’s character as if this was the first time for you to see how he rolls.  Don’t you remember how he spanked you during the 2018 primary and showed America he doesn’t take prisoners?

I admit I was excited when you ran in 2012 against Obama. Not so much about your political skills but as you weren’t Obama.  I went to see your rally at the convention center in West Palm Beach.  You were charming and said all the right things—I thought you had what it takes to win and I voted for you. But you lost because you underestimated your adversary. You needed a killer instinct to defeat Obama and his media propagandists. You needed to be like Trump.

I don’t want gentile Mr. Romney. I want a General Sherman marching his way to victory and not afraid to burn down anything in his way. You establishment Republicans will always lose because it’s in your DNA to do so.  You don’t have the stomach to destroy your enemies. You’re happy to play the power sharing game where each side sits for a spell and then swaps spots.  Unfortunately, the Left has no desire to play that game anymore Mitt. They are playing for keeps; to destroy capitalism.

So you’re angling to primary the President in 2020. You think you have the grace and charm, the gravitas to be the President you think America wants?  You’re wrong. Only weak minds will follow you—the same people who think getting a participation trophy is more important than actually winning.

Do yourself and America a favor and stay holed up in Utah with your mouth closed until 2024.

I don’t care what my neighbors think, I don’t care what other countries think and I certainly don’t care what you think about our President. He is doing what needs to be done to save this country from the evils of Socialism.

And if you do decide to challenge the President in 2020, just be prepared to  frequently change those Mormon underwear.
