Alex Jones warns of Martial Law Takeover while this is happening.

  Early 2017 has been a blur, weve already been through a month and a half of this year. The air is riddled with tension due to protests, riots, equal rights movements, and all of the above. 2016 has really left tensions high after the election, we can all agree on that. 

  Days after the inauguration there was a Woman’s March which got more attendee’s than the inauguration itself. Raking in about 1,001,616 according to the Washington Metropolitan Transit Authority compared to the estimated 900,000 people that attended the inauguration.And this is perfectly fine right? What harm are they causing? They’re just advocating woman’s rights and there’s nothing wrong with that. I have no problem with a peaceful protest that’s a guaranteed right you have. 

  Just how successful are all these protests and marches?  Down below is a picture of a CBA question I got on a History test.Initially it just looks like a question I got wrong, nothing too special about this right? My answer is wrong yes I know but that’s besides the point.

  As stated in the question above these are all contributions of women’s groups in the 90’s. We’ve all seen the protests. We’ve all seen the public outrage of women not “being treated equal” we’ve all seen the protests and marches. 

  If women are not given the recognition they deserve then how did this end up on my exam? May I dare ask, if minorities are allegedly discriminated against and women ignored why must I spend a whole semester every year being reminded of suffrage and civil rights? 

  If America taught “racism” and “inequality” why would we be constantly reminded of civil rights and be forced to write about Martin Luther King every year? We all know the government wasn’t very big on equal rights back in the early days of the civil rights movement, that’s nothing new. But what about now? 

  Can we not ignore the fact that minorities reserve the same rights as any American born citizen? Apparently not. As a result of “systemic racism” Black Lives Matter was founded to stick up for African American lives. But why would they need such a group now? Do you see where I’m getting here?

  What you’re telling me is that just because a person is white they have privilege? I’d say that’s a pretty racist assumption. Wouldn’t you agree that “White Privilege”or “Male Privilege” is something that simply isn’t around anymore? 

  Let’s look at facts here, according to the bureau of labor statistics as of December of 2016 the unemployment rate in the black community was at a ratio of Men at 7.3 while women were at a 6.7. Not only does this disprove that men are favored over women in the workplace but shows that men have a higher chance of becoming unemployed no matter what way you look at it.  Either by sex or race women clearly have the upperhand in maintaining jobs in modern day society.

  I don’t believe male privilege or white privilege exists anymore due to these simple solid facts. If protesting in a predominantly African American city and breaking into businesses and establishments ran by African American families is the way towards so called “equality” then what does privilige have to do with it? If breaking into cars, destroying businesses, homes, property and teaching children to be violent and hate a race of people just because of their skin color leads to “equality” then who’s the real racist? Black Lives Matter… I’m talking to you.

This is how Liberals reacted to Trump…

Today I went to school and wore this sign on my shirt. By the way this is the sixth one I made today. As I’m walking into school around 6:50 people start staring me down and giving me looks. At 7:00 people start saying things to me and flicking me off. At 7:03 I already lost my first Trump sign being assaulted and verbally harassed in the process.

As we all know not many Hispanics like Donald but today’s events went to an extreme. As I was really disappointed I continued doing what I was doing and made another sign. It was the end of first period by that time and I walk up the stairs and I get another individual tugging at my shirt ripping my sign in the process.Video shown below.

But wait ! There’s more where that came from! As I’m standing outside of my classroom I get approached by yet another individual saying they hate me and they proceed to once again tear my sign. Video shown below

By the time I was in second period I had already lost 3 signs but what did I do? Make new ones! Because nothing can Stump The Trump!

After second period I’m walking to my next class but oh it does not stop here. As I’m walking there’s three outbursts towards me while I’m minding my own business.Video shown below

So my sign was intact and I finish third safe. But don’t think it was over just yet, it keeps going. After third while I’m walking down the hall even my friends approach, not believing I was serious about supporting Trump they attempt to go for my sign.

I don’t understand the hate. This is America and I have my first amendment that protects me from harassment for my political views. According to the FBI’s official website a hate crime is “A traditional offense like murder, arson, or vandalism with an added element of bias.”

Bias you might ask? According to Google Bias is ” Prejudice in favor of or against one thing, person, or group compared with another, usually in a way considered to be unfair.” As I slowly came to realize this was only the beginning.

In this video a group of girls not only harasses me but they assault me publicly in front of their Volleyball coach. After finding out that this woman was simply watching as I was assaulted and harassed by her students not only angered me but also disappointed me. To know that these individuals actions are deemed as acceptable only makes them believe that it is okay to do these things. That it is okay to violate someone’s freedom of expression and that it is okay to harass and assault an individual based on their political views and beliefs.

America is supposed to be a free country with the right to express myself freely to a certain extent where I don’t endanger or terrorize others. Many people said that they would not vote Trump because of racist hate crimes that would be committed against Latinos if he was elected. But are they really the ones at risk? From what I experienced today these were hate crimes I experienced simply because I didn’t have the right opinion. I thought you could have your own beliefs in America? Apparently 2016 is the rise of a new wave of hate against our rights.

The Inevitable has been avoided?

 

In the photo above is Abraham Lincoln, 16th president of the United States. Lincoln lead a vital role in the freeing of African-Americans during the 1800’s by helping pass the 13th amendment which led to the eventual freeing of slaves in America.

Most can agree that Lincoln was a great man and had great influence in America during his time. But alas all good things must come to an end. On April 14th 1865 John Wilkes Booth assassinated Lincoln while he was at Ford Theater in Washington.

But why? Why would someone kill someone with such good intentions? Another example would be the assassination of MLK or Gandhi. They were great men who achieved great things but why must they be punished for bringing out the good in the world?
  

On November 5th an assassination attempt was conducted on presidential candidate Donald J. Trump during a rally in Reno. As Trump was giving a speech a man in the crowd began yelling “He’s got a gun” and immediately security restrained the man now known as 33 year old Austyn Crites and immediately took him to interrogation.

Many great men have been killed because of one simple fact. You can stop slavery. You can stop racism and segregation. You can stop inequality in a country and even make peace in the world but there is one simple fact that cannot be ignored. Man cannot stop a bullet.
   

As it later turns out the suspect was not attempting an assassination as he wasn’t armed or even posed a threat. Which causes many questions to emerge from the situation. The man who claimed to be a “nonviolent protester” came to a Trump rally to protest. He caused a huge scene and almost had the rally be over and done with.

But of course Trump returned five minutes after to finish his speech and thank his security for ensuring his life wasn’t on the line  “Nobody said it was going to be easy for us. But we will never be stopped. Never, never be stopped. I want to thank the Secret Service. These guys are fantastic. They don’t get enough credit. They don’t get enough credit. They’re amazing people.” stated Trump.

Just as this happened you have to also think of the important consequences this could have had. Such as the rally being cancelled or Trump leaving the premises being unable to finish his speech.

As we narrow down to November 8th more and more ludicrous acts will be acted upon in order to stop Trump. They’ve went as far as attempting to stop a rally. What’s next? We don’t know to what lengths they will go to stop him. But what we do know is, nothing can Stump The Trump.

Americanization in America?

 Is this what you think when you hear or think Americanization? Well i’d agree that that’s accurate. What about modern day Americanization? You’d think about American businesses such as McDonalds in Asia and India things of that nature. But what about schools in America?

Before you rule this out as being clickbait or a overstatement think of this. In any school in America they pledge allegiance to the United States flag, ever since I can remember we have done the pledge of allegiance in school. What does this mean?

Well not a definite sign of Assimilation into American culture but this isn’t all I’m bringing to the table, as a latino resident of Texas I know that there is a variety of people immigrating from South America to the United States. In that transition from the South to the North, Texas is amongst the first states that people immigrate to upon getting here.

Here in Texas we have ESL(English Second Language) classes where the students learn to speak English socialize in a school environment and to respect rules. After a few years of ESL classes you are moved to a regular English class in an effort to assimilate you amongst other students. Upon this switch students pick up on different music, trends, different points of view and different beliefs amongst youth.

In most states we take World History as a requirement to graduate but we also have U.S history. We learn the history of the U.S and the world but isn’t the U.S part of the world? Must we learn about the history of the United States for a year? Some would beg to differ but in most states a year of U.S history is mandatory due to the fact that many people immigrate here from other countries and do not assimilate into American culture.

They go straight into jobs like construction, restaurants, housekeeping and more because of the fact that they do not need social security or anything to work in these fields. They don’t have the oportunity to go into school and learn their basic human rights, but let’s not drift off the topic here.

In U.S history they learn their basic rights, that they have these rights to a certain extent. Every school has core classes where they learn basic math and analytical skills such as english. They are taught Darwinism  the reason the Earth is the way it is, biology to have an understanding of their body works and then they’re sent on their way. American schools are not supposed to have any religious bias in their teachings due to multiculturalism. They learn to accept other races and other beliefs amongst their own which in tune leads to a certain set of beliefs they begin to see as their own and begin to assimilate into modern American culture.

We are taught to speak English, pledge allegiance to the flag of the U.S and learn to fit into American society. What will make sure we assimilate into American society through schools you might ask? That’s a simple question with a simple answer, compulsory education laws in the United States make it mandatory by law that all children in America must attend school for a certain amount of time from a certain age to enroll to a certain age when students are allowed to drop out.

Americanization is still very well and alive today not in such an aggressive form as the times of westward expansion but now we have a more mild form of Americanization that’s forced unto people inhabiting the U.S in a legal and formal way. Whenever you think of Americanization don’t just think of Native Americans, think of yourself, your children and generations to come. Because it’s clear that Americanization is going to be something practiced and perfected for a long time.
