In this Friday blast to constituents, Kansas City's top ranking official in Washington D.C. dreams of a more civil discourse from a leader who is renowned for his controversial statements.

Congressman Cleaver: A Nation that Tolerance Built

I thought I would share with you the same letter I sent to my colleagues on the House this week. Lately, I have been contemplating the President’s response to numerous athletes’ peaceful protests during the National Anthem. This is what I would have liked to hear him say:

My Fellow Americans,

Tonight, with heartache and frustration, I must report that our beloved nation is perilously divided. Over the past few nights, I have agonized over the fact that we have made progress on race relations but the controversy surrounding the refusal by some African American NFL athletes to stand during the ritualistic pre-game singing of the National Anthem has revealed that on the issue of race, our once fast-paced progress has stagnated.

I fully understand that many of you, honest and hardworking Americans, find offensive the kneeling during the singing of the National Anthem. While I would choose to protest in a different manner, I frequently recall the words I uttered at my inauguration on January 20, 2017, “I do solemnly swear…to the best of my ability to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States.” Any American has the constitutional right to protest, and even if I disrelish this form of protest, as the president of this great nation, I will and I must defend and respect their incontrovertible, guaranteed right to kneel during the singing of the Star Spangled Banner. And I will honor my pledge that I made upon taking office, a pledge which was purified by the blood of those Americans who selflessly fought to their dying breath for the freedoms we enjoy.

Finally, we must bring to a halt our mutating political and racial tribalism or it will bring to an arrest our capacity to “form a more perfect union.” We must proudly become the blessed nation that tolerance built.

 And, in an attempt to turn down the volume and volatility in the public square, I will hold a series of meetings here in the White House where I, along with Congressional leaders, can better inspire a new tone as we seriously discuss the issues that launched the protest in the first place. If our nation is to continue its euphuistic pursuit of that more perfect union, we must terminate our ultimate allegiance to a race, a tribe, an ideology or a cultural identity. Our destiny is unity not division. When we are engaged in fighting each other, we are unconsciously inviting our adversaries to test us. Yes, it is true that racial minorities see things quite differently from the majority, but our differences do not demand division.

James Baldwin said that “I love America more than any other country in the world and, exactly for this reason, I insist on the right to criticize her perpetually.” Calling a protester unpatriotic is in and of itself unpatriotic. It reduces patriotism to a falsity.

Emanuel Cleaver, II
Member of Congress

Both the Democrats and Republicans have been guilty of exploiting racial controversy. The fighting over the anthem is just the latest chapter.

This country wasn't built on tolerance.

That's absurd.

It was built on slave labor, & immigrant labor.

^^^^ Wasn't built by idiots like you that's for sure!

This country wasn't built at al. Parts of it we bought from Inidians and France. Parts of it we just flat out stole from the pussies from England, Mexico and other Indians. I don't see a problem with that.

The Blacks did not turn out for Hillary like they did for Obama.

The Democrats know that they have to get the Blacks worked up, and play the race card all the way this time.

Cleaver and others are going to do whatever they can to push the division.

Just watch.

Sadly, this racial game is how it's played and it's up to EVERYONE to reject it and talk about the issues instead.

Western Civilization is drowning in tolerance. Ethnic Violence is a feature of diverse societies.The greater the diversity, the greater the violence.Whites are told to learn to love it when Muslims, African Americans, and other non-whites are shooting, stabbing, raping, and blowing them up.Diversity simply means fewer White People. Did the (((Left))) really think that we would not fight back ? Did the (((Left))) never imagine that we would say no ? As the (((Left))) pushes harder and harder against White Christian Civilization--more and more Whites will resist.The political establishment bears 100% of the blame for the intolerance, hatred, and violence that are the predictable consequences of their policies.

Cleaver pay off your car wash debt and stay out of Trumps way. Stop resisting and help Make America Great Again. Obama is gone...the jig is pun intended.

Bryon makes sense sometimes. I'd take his comments over some of the trash on this blog any day.

If you want to live in an all white paradise. Please move to North Dakota and watch TV or the Internet. The world will go on without you.


But you won't, you'll keep bothering the rest of us with your hatred over your shitty lives which you blame black people for instead of taking responsibility for your own mistakes or just crying over bad luck.

The same problem I have with racists is the same problem I have with the SJW crowd.

Stop blaming everyone else for your problems!

6:15 Hits the nail on the head.

People are sick unto their souls of entitled, violent blacks and the chaos, dysfunction and heartache they bring to those citizens who are unable to escape the plague.

Let's hope there is a "Fundamental Change" in the other direction and the violence visited on us by way of the encouragement of people like 6:31, Byron and the liberal, hate America and especially HATE WHITE PEOPLE Antifa Anarchists, can be visited in turn, violently back on these thugs.

Nice job 6:15

Western Civilization, is drowning in tolerance. Ethnic Violence, i's a feature of daverse society' s.The greater the daversity. The greater the violence. White's are told, to learn to love it. Jesus sed, to love one another. But only if he look's like you. When Mudslim's, African American's, and other non-white's, are shooting. Stabbing, raping. And blowing them up. Daversity simply means fewer White People. Did the Left really thank, that we would not fight back. Did the lib's never imagine? That we would say no. As the Left push;s harder. And harder against White Christian Civilization. More, and more, and more, and more, and more, and more, and more. White's, will resist. The political establishment, bare's 153%, of the blame. For the intolerance, hatred, and violence. That are the predictable consequence's of there policy's.

MAGA = KKK version of whites only (no Jews or Catholics need apply). There is no doubt who they hate.

Anonymous said...

Peaceful protests???? NOT, this is nothing but black people using racism as patriotism. Funny how the start of this whole so called peaceful protest has changed two or three times on what they are protesting. It's actually about the hatred of cops and how black people want to kill cops like they did in Texas. They killed the very cops who were there protecting them during their so called peaceful protests.

BRYON the Jews had it way worse than black people ever did, WAY WORSE so why don't you people grow up and move on. Oh and the Arabs also took black people as slaves too.

Kaepernick’s foundation made the donation to Chicago-based Assata’s Daughter’s, named after former Black Liberation Army member Assata Shakur, in April as part of a $1million charitable pledge.

Shakur was convicted of first-degree murder in the 1973 shooting death of New Jersey state trooper Werner Foerster and sentenced to life in prison, but staged a daring jailbreak and now lives as a fugitive in Cuba.

Super Dave said...

Oh I forgot this came up in a conversation today wasn't my total idea but our President is a citizen the same as any other citizen of this country and he is protected but the Constitution of the United States the same as anyone else. Even as a President he is allowed to protest and make known his protests the same as Byron thinks we should have to listen to his crap all the time. Only difference is which one is the total nut job of the two?

But no it's true, the President is allowed by law to protest or make known his feelings on any subject taking place. Now the snowflakes , democrats, and losers living in Virginia don't think that should be so.

8:04, don't try to hide behind my daughter married a Jew so I can't be racist dodge. There is no cover there.

Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner's synagogue condemned President Trump's remarks. “We are appalled by this resurgence of bigotry and antisemitism, and the renewed vigor of the neo-Nazis, KKK, and alt-right,” Rabbi Emeritus Haskel Lookstein wrote, along with his successors Rabbi Chaim Steinmetz and Rabbi Elie Weinstock, in a letter shared on the congregation’s Facebook page.

“While we avoid politics, we are deeply troubled by the moral equivalency and equivocation President Trump has offered in his response to this act of violence,” the statement continued.

As for Catholics, Trump has zero respect. He doesn't believe in the need to ask for forgiveness (although to be fair, he said that he doesn't recall ever acting in a way that required forgiveness??? Really? WTF?). Not to mention his sacrament belittling when he "drinks his little wine and takes the little cracker".

Or when he called Pope Frances "disgraceful" last year. Then continued, saying "Who the hell cares? OK? I don’t care.”

Drumpf. Sacrilegious. Disgraceful. Reality.

So Cleaver has been a politician longer than he was a preacher. Exactly what has he done to fix all this shit he complains about? Talking out his ass doesn't count. While he sits on his ass in D.C. complaining about cabinet members travel expenses he forgets about his bullshit trip to Africa with BroBamy for, get this, foreign trade. Can one person tell me one fucking thing he has actually accomplished as a legislator?

Uh, hello, Mc Fly - your Affirmative Action President and First Lady Moochelle were totally aligned with their Pastor. The entire Trump Family gets insulted by left-wing nutjobs like you, in and out of the pulpit.

Check all the post-election results. It's been widely documented that Trump won the Catholic vote. So your response to this fact is to pull out the "Russians rigged the election for Trump" fantasy? Even CNN reported yesterday that Russia did indeed buy ads prior to the election - for Black Lives Matter. LOL

Say hi to Alice in Wonderland for us.

Anonymous said...

My god you're dumb. I'll go slowly. You said, "Most Catholics support Trump over this Liberation Theology Pope"

Who is more popular?

Pope = awesome.
In the U.S., Pope Francis remains as popular as ever, with seven-in-ten Americans saying their opinion of the pontiff is “very” or “mostly” favorable, according to a new Pew Research Center survey. 19% express an unfavorable opinion and just 11% say they don’t know enough to be able to rate the pontiff.

Not surprisingly, Pope Francis is even more popular among U.S. Catholics than he is among the public as a whole, with eight-in-ten or more American Catholics routinely giving the pope favorable ratings. Currently, 87% of Catholics express a favorable view of the pope.

Drumpf = awful
A majority of U.S. Catholics, 56 percent, disapprove of how President Donald J. Trump is carrying out his duties, a new poll from the Pew Research Center has found. Just 38 percent of Catholics say they approve of the president.

So, if this were a vote, Russian's best hacking couldn't overcome a 42 point gap. (Pope 80% approval, Drumpf 38% approval)

I can't help you if you keep huffing Drumpf's hairspray.

Holy crap, you don't even realize you just agreed the Russians help Trump win.

"So your response to this fact is to pull out the "Russians rigged the election for Trump" fantasy? Even CNN reported yesterday that Russia did indeed buy ads prior to the election - for Black Lives Matter. LOL"

Exactly - the ads were the same 'BLM are the scary new Black Panthers, be scared of the cop killer racist' shit you see on Fox. They placed those ads in front of white swing voters to link BLM with Hillary and scare them to Trump.

Remember when Dems backed Akin in the 2012 primary? They ran TV spots. "Akin's too conservative, vote for the other candidates" They pushed gullible voters right where they wanted. They voted Akin in the primary, and we all got Claire in the general.

Russians used BLM ads in the same way. Got it?

I doubt the ads worked on you. Sounds like you were racist and stupid before they aired.

You keep doubling down on stupid.

The Russians wanted to scare voters with BLM ads? Bwahahahahahahaha

Anonymous said...

I see you still can't defend your original point that Trump was more popular than the Pope, because you can't. Changing the assertion is not winning a debate. It's admitting you lost.

Glad you can laugh at your admission of the successful Russian hack with ad buys. Keep up the Bwahaha to cover yourself. You're not fooling anyone. Trump and his supporters are playing checkers (and not well) while the rest of the world is playing them. 3D chess.

Anonymous said...

^^^ you're the one that can't justify your original assertion @7:07 that generated all the follow-on debate - that "MAGA = white version of KKK (no Jews or Catholics need apply)".

You've floundered unsuccessfully in trying to continually move the goalposts. You continue with the Democrat pipe dream that the Russians put Trump in the White House.

Do you losers really think that anyone buys your agitprop?

Anonymous said...

You can't even copy and paste correctly. White version of KKK? Update your Vic 20, fuckwad, if your parents still give you an allowance.

When you excuse anti-Semitic groups and draw criticism of the Jewish community, then you get the racist label. When you insult the Pope and belittle sacraments, you earn the anti-Catholic label. It's that simple and true. If you listened to Trump's words, you would understand that.

But, you're more interested in defending white supremacist words and people, which makes you pretty racist too, and impossible to teach. Keep living your miserable existence full of ignorance. That's always a good life plan.

Kansas City's black community could use some fresh leadership talking about self improvement and behavior. Then at the same time some better support from the greater community and we might actually get a better result.
