K.I.S.S. Explanation of the Difference Between Truth and a Lie

Apparently those who remain blinded to the defeated former President still cannot differentiate between truth and a lie.

We are forced to use the Keep It Simple Stupid approach to explain this rather obvious yet critical difference.

The DFPOTUS (Defeated Former President of the United State) said this, which is an example of a lie,

“I will tell you they know who shot Ashli Babbitt. They’re protecting that person. I have heard also that it was the head of security for a certain high official, a Democrat. And we will see because it’s going to come out. It’s going to come out.” — on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures.”

Here is the truth.

No, the officer who shot and killed Babbitt was not head of security for a Democratic official. He is a police lieutenant on the 2,000-member Capitol Police force that protects the buildings and grounds. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/ap-fact-check-trump-stokes-jan-6-conspiracy-theories

Here’s another example of a lie from DFPOTUS on another Fox Show

“The defeated president’s comments come as he and many of his supporters recast the pro-Trump insurrection as a patriotic display of “spirit and faith and love,” as he put it Sunday on Fox News Channel.”

“There must be some way outta here, said the Joker to the Thief”

All Along the Watchtower, Jimi Hendrix version (written by Bob Dylan)

Here are a couple of images from the Capitol that infamous day which illustrates the truth, unless your idea of “spirit, faith, and love” is quite different than most rational Americans.

Here’s an image from EDM.com which shows a gathering of almost 400,000 Americans at a true celebration of America’s “spirit, faith, and love” as comparison.

At Woodstock, there were less than a dozen police officers for the enormous crowd and none were injured.

On January 6th, where several officers died and hundreds were injured, the DFPOTUS would have you believe this was a celebration of “spirit, faith, and love” in the finest tradition of American patriotism.

From Woodstock we got the most memorable music and one rather crude but harmless chant.

“Gimme an F…Gimme a U…”

From January 6, 2021, we got this gem.

“Hang Mike Pence, Hang Mike Pence.”

I’ll leave it to you to choose which chant you want to recall with some sense of fondness, and which one comes closest to reflecting the worst of America.

The truly sad part about the DFPOTUS rants is that not one leader of the Republican Party called him for what he is, a liar.  Not Mitch McConnell, not Kevin McCarthy, none of the so-called Republican leadership has the courage or the sense of honor to call the DFPOTUS to task for his lies.

So, Mr. DFPOTUS, I have a new chant for you.

Gimme a S… Gimme a T…Gimme a F…GImme a U…”  What’s that spell? STFU! What’s that spell? STFU!

Please, Mr. DFPOTUS S.T.F.U. (Cue Jimi Hendrix “There must be some way out of here, said the Joker to the Thief”)

America Has a Problem

There has never been a more stark example of endemic racism than what happened in the days and hours leading up to the attempted coup on January 6th, 2021.

Now I don’t believe for one moment the Chief of the US Capitol Police intentionally underprepared for those days events in the hope the crowd would act as they did. But clearly there was a lack of preparation on their part. The same with the MDC Police who, three days before this planned and emotionally charged gathering of Trump supporters parroting the lies of a fraudulent election, refused the pre-placement of National guardsmen.

These inactions led to police officers being overwhelmed by violent protesters and the murder of a US Capitol Policeman. The restraint demonstrated by those front-line officers was remarkable. It is the only bright moment from this dark day. We can hope the restraint was a matter of choice, not simply being outnumbered or, worse, the racial makeup of the protesters.

But the evidence of differential treatment before our eyes is unmistakable. Those in a position to plan for such eventualities saw no need to prepare for the real possibility of violent confrontation. In contrast, the preparation for protests by Black Lives Matter and other such groups engendered an entirely different response, one that assumed there would be violence.

It begs the question why?

Either intentionally, or subconsciously, those in command of these agencies saw predominantly black majority protests as inherently dangerous and, in troubling contrast, saw the predominantly white majority protest as without similar risks.

The stark difference is black and white. They may not have said it out loud, but clearly the implication was, “you gotta watch out for them Black folk. You know how they can be.”

This piece will not endear me to many of my brethren in law enforcement, but the reality is endemic racism is insidious, dangerous, and fraught with peril unless we address it with determination. As my good friend Matt Horace said in his book, The Black and the Blue: A Cop Reveals the Crimes, Racism, and Injustice in America’s Law Enforcement

Whether unconsciously or intentionally, American society is suffused with a racial bias that must be eradicated. When it comes to the ailments and needs in the black community, the response is punitive and lacking. 
I thought about my fellow officers who are upset about a movement that is directed at fighting against police. But my brothers in blue are wrong. 
The suspect has once again been misidentified. These protestors are not saying that white lives don’t matter or that police lives don’t matter. Everything  in America — from educational institutions to social networks, television, news, films, financial markets — says white lives do matter. 
Instead, the message is a demand and a plea for society to embrace African American’s humanity, Black Lives Matter —-too.

The Black and the Blue: A Cop Reveals the Crimes, Racism, and Injustice in America’s Law Enforcement by Matt Horace and Ron Harris

Even the responses of those looking to rationalize the actions on January 6th, making outlandish comparisons that at least this action was less violent than the BLM-led protests over the summer, are troubling as if this false relativism equals a rational justification.

And the man in the middle of this firestorm, who once demanded Governors and Mayors summon the National Guard with historically racists taunts like, “When the looting starts, the shooting starts,” forcefully resisted calling in the Guard. When his Proud Boy, white supremacist, Confederate Flag waving anarchists were violating the sanctity of the people’s house Mr. Trump watched it on television as his “great patriots” made him proud.

Joe Biden faces an enormous task. To take back the bully pulpit from the racist mob and heal a shattered American reputation in a world horrified by the reality of our systemic racist legacy.
