Trump Speaks - Too Little To Late?
It's good that Trump made this speech to the country and for his base to know that violence is unacceptable. He did not apologize for what he did and said at that Jan. 6th rally but this is good to calm people down.
Who is responsible for the insurrection at the US Capitol? Many blame Trump who spoke at a rally on January 6th. There was a "call" for people to come from all over the country. At the rally Trump again and again told his followers to fight and to march down to the Capitol and seek justice for the election that was "being stolen" from him. People are responsible for their own actions but did Trump incite a riot? Yes he did. He has been spewing false claims since the November Election in which Biden won. Trump has stated that the election has been stolen and their was widespread fraud. He said the only way he would lose is if the election was stolen. CNN has shown the footage again and again that Rudy Giuliani said there has to be "Trial by Combat". There was a senator who I can't remeber his name said at the rally, "It's time to start taking names and kicking ass." There were congressmen and women that objected to ratifying t
A few years back when the Black Lives Matter movement came about during the Trayvon shooting, and Fergueson and etc I don't think it was embraced as it is now. I think White America felt hesitant to embrace it because I think they felt "left out" or excluded in the protests somehow. You would hear the phrase All Lives Matter. Hillary Clinton used it during one of the debates. Eric Garner died uttering the phrase, "I can't breathe." When the officer had a choke hold on him for selling loosies (individual cigarettes). This was definitely a case of excessive force Fast forward to now with George Floyd died saying I can't breathe when a White officer pressed his knee into Floyd's neck for eight minutes. That awoke everyone, well almost. This case went world wide even during a pandemic. People of all colors risked their lives protesting. Those Black Lives Matter signs were everywhere as well as "I can't breathe." Even in Europe. Ac
Dr. Fauci one of America's leading doctors concerning an infectious disease Covid-19, is throwing the first pitch in tonight's MLB game: The New York Yankees vs. The Washington Nationals in Washington DC. A lot of people have been talking about this and how it will go over since it will be played with no fans. Today is opening day and we will see. No slight to Dr. Fauci, but I wonder with the protests and Black Lives Matter would major league baseball ever let one of their founders throw out the pitch or someone like Derrick Johnson president of the NAACP? Has Jesse Jackson ever thrown out a first pitch? Just curious. I did some research and the answer is yes. Jesse Jackson threw out the first pitch on April 6, 2013 between the Chicago Cubs vs. Texas Rangers. Rep. John Lewis who recently passed away threw it at Washington Nationals game back in April 2018. I caught the first pitch and Dr. Fauci threw it to the far right of the catcher. No biggie we know why he was there
