Rusty Warner: A Pedophile Kills them self who cares?…


Talk_About_Pedophiles
…. Many of the things expressed in this Sub-Blog, I’ve addressed any number of times over the years. I don’t wish to analyze every video, etc., but I do find it valuable to share these kinds of video, etc., even if I disagree substantially with any of it…It’s important to acknowledge and embrace, that there are people out there, who are engaged in levelheaded discussion about “pedophiles”. – Steve

Aunt Jemima Changing Name & Logo, Along With Uncle Ben…

01) Aunt Jemima Changing Name & Logo, Along With Uncle Ben


I first encountered this campaign to banish Aunt Jemima [Uncle Ben, etc.] in the 1990’s…

…They haven’t been too interested in making these changes the last few decades…Not until now, after people are taking to the streets…and they’re probably getting really worried this might come back around to bite them.

As icons go…I have to ask, what happens when an icon transcends it’s original meaning or intent?…

I grew up with these successful, national brands…If you’d have asked me to describe Aunt Jemima…I’d have said she was a smiling southern lady wearing a dew rag…and not thought much else about it..because an icon that old doesn’t really have many old enough left, to genuinely connect it with racism and slavery…does it?…

You’d have to go searching for this information, in order to ever know anything about it.

What I find trippy…is that Mrs. Butterworth’s pancake syrup is also pulled into this…

…the magical bottle of syrup that comes to life and talks in the commercials…

If you’d have asked me to guess her biological race…I’d have honestly said she was probably white…she seemed like a classic, English maid…Nothing about that character ever made me presume it was supposed to be black…I mean, the color of the bottle was very dark…but it was a pancake syrup bottle…what other color was it supposed to be?

It feels crazy after all this time, being told that Mrs. Butterworth is black.

I’m at a loss as to how this translates into being “racist”, though…but it sounds like they’ve succeeded in banishing Mrs. Butterworth, also…

…and that black cook on the Cream of Wheat boxes.

01) The REAL Reason Amy Klobuchar Removed Herself From VP Consideration


“The DNC is terrified to have a progressive as part of the Biden administration.

Sen. Amy Klobuchar on Thursday night removed herself from consideration to be Joe Biden’s running mate, citing the ongoing national discussion about racial injustice and police brutality to suggest the former vice president should choose a woman of color.

“This is a historic moment, and America must seize on this moment. And I truly believe as, I actually told the vice president last night when I called him, that I think this is a moment to put a woman of color on that ticket,” Klobuchar, a Minnesota Democrat, told MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell.

These Trump Ads Were So INSANE Even Facebook Rejected Them…

01) These Trump Ads Were So INSANE Even Facebook Rejected Them


“Trump is using Nazi dog whistles.

Facebook on Thursday took down Trump campaign ads against antifa that prominently featured a symbol used by Nazis to designate political prisoners, a spokesperson for the company confirmed to The Hill.

“We removed these posts and ads for violating our policy against organized hate,” Facebook said in a statement. “Our policy prohibits using a banned hate group’s symbol to identify political prisoners without the context that condemns or discusses the symbol.”

The ads featured an inverted red triangle, which was used by Nazis to identify political opponents including communists, social democrats and liberals at concentration camps.
