It is appalling that spineless politicians are cowering to calls that statutes of men like #georgewashington should be removed! All this talk is baseless and makes no sense, just a bunch of life long politicians afraid of losing votes. Yet they don't see that most of the people fighting for this aren't even real voters and second erasing the names of men that helped build America is absolutely disgusting! Some of these men may have made mistakes, but that's what history is and we learn from our mistakes. If we can't whitewash our personal histories we can't and won't whitewash the history of our great nation! #standupforhistory#spinelesspoliticians#learnfromourpast#america#patriotic#maga#foxnews#politicssuck#stopthehate#stoptheviolence
What did you really think "Make #America#Great Again" really meant... are you that naive??
#Trumpism boils down to one idea: #ethnic cleansing. When he says, “Make America Great Again,” his followers understand he is really saying, “Make America White Again.”
his core ideas involve eliminating entire groups from the public sphere. Millions would be physically removed. “Illegals” and Mexicans will be sent packing (the two are interchangeable in the minds of many supporters). He wants to shut off Muslim immigration through “extreme vetting,” Muslims here should be forced to register with the government and some mosques shut down. His website is even more radical. He has mentioned reducing immigration to “moderate historical averages,” which could only be accomplished by terminating immigration for decades or booting out 27 million immigrants. #wakeup people #revolt & #pray
VOLCAN VILLARRICA - PUCÓN
Cordillera de los Andes, Región de los Rios, Chile. El volcán Villarrica emerge en forma cónica perfecta desde las faldas del lago homónimo, ciudad de Pucón. Una fumarola incesante que al anochecer se vuelve roja y recuerda al que mira que sigue vivo, pinta el cielo oscuro con un halo de mística incandescencia. Para los mapuches un volcán representa la expresión por donde la Mapu (tierra) respira y brinda vida; Para el jesuita Alonso de Ovalle en cambio, la erupción de 1640 de este mismo volcán representó la voluntad divina de que los mapuches se rindieran de una vez al “suave yugo de la cruz y ley evangélica por medio de la obediencia y sujeción a nuestro católico rey” [sic]. Y lo hicieron.
Este suceso que puede dibujar una ligera sonrisa de incredulidad al lector es solo una pincelada más de como la corona española oprimió a cientos de pueblos indígenas y sometió a su fe y religión por medio de sangre y mentiras a civilizaciones con filosofías de vida muy diferentes a las católicas. Quizá, tales hechos puedan sonarte extraños, porque te los han enseñado desde pequeño con otra perspectiva y otro nombre: el “descubrimiento” de América.

My daughter loves the American flag, and she has a sense of pride about where she's from. She's lived in 3 different states, visited 20, and she claims the Midwest as home. Last time she went to the east coast she told her Mimi she was flying back to "her version of America" 😂. She doesn't associate the flag with divide, racial tension, riots, or politics. She sees this flag and thinks of her mommy's uniform and home.
I hope she continues to be proud of where she's from, and I hope she continues to embrace the fact the diversity we have here is what makes it such a great country. At the end of the day I'm responsible for teaching this little girl about morals and values. If I ever let her think for once second it's ok to dislike someone because of the way they look I have failed as a parent. In the words of My daughter, "the most important thing is being nice" 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
