Missouri Lawmaker Raises Anti-White, Anti-American Fist During Pledge

I think we could all agree that the most anti-black organization to come out of that period known as “The Reconstruction Period” after the Civil War was the KKK.  Although they also encouraged Protestantism, the anti-black component emerged to the forefront of their ideology. This anti-black sentiment stayed with us all too long as a political movement inside the Democrat Party where such notables as Chief Justice Hugo Black and U.S. Senator Robert Byrd affected the current racial divide we see today. (I should also add that Hugo Black was largely responsible for taking God out of the classrooms of America.)

So if the sentiment ‘most’ anti-black organization is agreed upon then we can also agree that the ‘most’ anti-white organization to arise out of the so-called “Civil-Rights” era is what is known as, “Black Lives Matter” (BLM)…and if you read their propaganda material, the only lives that matter.  Although we haven’t seen a lot of public admittance by politicians encouraging more racial divide that BLM instigates, that is soon to change.  Rep. Bruce Franks Jr, a St. Louis Democrat not only admits to participating in BLM activities, he brings his racist anti-American sentiments to the Missouri House.  God forbid that he rise to the prominence of Hugo Black and Robert Byrd, the affects would be astronomical.  (Mmm…a Democrat, the most divisive party in American history.) ~ Norman E.

Missouri Lawmaker Raises Fist During Pledge
‎January‎ ‎4‎, ‎2018

A Missouri lawmaker raised his fist rather than covering his heart during the Pledge of Allegiance in the Missouri House.
Rep. Bruce Franks, Jr. a St. Louis Democrat, explained why in a Facebook post.
“I won’t pledge allegiance to a flag, but I will pledge my allegiance to the people,” the Jan. 3 post reads. “All power to the people.”
Known as a leader of the Ferguson-Black Lives Matter protests, Franks Jr was elected to the Missouri House of Representatives last year. As a protestor, he once told the St. Louis Dispatch he can’t dress down without being racially profiled. He lamented not being take seriously as a college educated black man and owner of two businesses. Even when he wears a suit, some of his 33 tattoos show, including tear-stain tattoos on his face.
Franks Jr. told the Associated Press that people who look like him are often disproportionately affected by things. In order to avoid controversy, he told the AP he typically leaves the House floor during the Pledge. Yesterday, he was to introduce guests immediately following the Pledge, so he stayed and raised his fist instead.

Wreaths Across America...Cape Cod Massachusetts

Each December on National Wreaths Across America Day, our mission to Remember, Honor and Teach is carried out by coordinating wreath-laying ceremonies at Arlington National Cemetery, as well as over 1,200 additional locations in all 50 U.S. states, at sea, and abroad. ~ Wreaths Across America
Although it's only my second year of participation, I can honestly say it has become an annual event to lay a wreath on the gravesite of someone unknown to me...unknown by name maybe, but I know who they are.  I know these people like I've known them all my life for they are patriots that wore the uniform of their country in time of need...whether that need was peacetime or conflict, serving is an honor that cannot be explained in ordinary words but over 200 years ago someone came up with a summary of all the extraordinary words we can muster.  Esprit de corps...it covers camaraderie, fellowship, devotion, honor, friendship, morale, and a host of others.  Yes, I understand the meaning of esprit de corps because I too wore the uniform for twenty-one years and that alone makes me a member of the thousands who have gone before me...some who have gave their all in battle and others who as General MacArthur once said, "Old soldiers never die, they just fade away."
And one more thing before I display the pictures of today's events.  Today was special because everyone in attendance were patriots whether they wore the uniform or not.  Some were wives, uncles, brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers, cousins, and just plain old friends.  No one expressed their differences or politics we were all one...we were all Americans today.
And that's the way it should be today and every day.  Oh, and it was a bit cold but heck, that was nothing!  ~ Norman E. Hooben
