Lately we have heard more and more of the persecution and oppression supposedly found in the United States of America. The definition of oppression is: “prolonged, cruel, and unjust treatment or control.” This is 2017, almost 2018, and there are people, mainly on the left, who whine and complain on a continual basis. What do these individuals find so oppressive about living in America?
Unfortunately, there are several groups crying oppression. Recently, many men in the NFL have protested our flag and the National Anthem in the name of “social justice”. Social justice for whom? These are the very fortunate ones who make millions of dollars for playing a game, and live a lifestyle that most of us could never afford.
Then there’s the spoiled college students who claim that they feel threatened if someone disagrees with them or, if an invited speaker happens to have an opposing view. Illegals and their lefty buddies say that they are oppressed because they may be deported. Does the word “illegal” mean anything? They broke the law, so they should be deported.
One of my favorites are the fake feminists who declare that they are oppressed, and I still cannot figure out how they came to that conclusion. They better stop listening to the likes of Linda Sarsour, the well-known fake feminist and avowed stealth jihadist.
Some black Americans feel oppressed because they can’t seem to get out of the poverty merry-go-round that they’re on. They live in bad neighborhoods, where kids are raised in fatherless homes, and the quality of education is poor. Teen pregnancies are common. Sadly, scenarios like that are found in cities where Democrats have been consistently elected for years, but have done little or nothing for their constituents. The time has come for blacks to break away from the plantation environment encouraged by the Liberals.
Obviously, many of those screaming about oppression have never been oppressed and don’t know what they’re talking about. If you want examples of oppression, how about the persecution of Christians, Jews, and those of other religions, who are being tortured and killed, just because of their religion, in primarily Muslim areas. The madman in North Korea controls and starves his people, and that’s oppression. In countries where Sharia law is practiced, women are treated badly and have no rights. In countries where the citizen is not able to speak freely, that’s oppression. Americans are not oppressed.
I resent the protests and fuss these coddled ingrates have started. These spoiled, rich, snowflakes, who don’t know American history, don’t bother to get the facts, and insist upon opening their big mouths to voice an opinion on a subject they know little or nothing about.
In our past there was cause for concern because there was oppression, especially to black Americans. However, much has been done to alleviate that horrible situation. Unlike some on the left, let’s get over it and move on. It also took a while for women to get the vote, but that too was finally accomplished. There’s nothing wrong with protesting and speaking out about important, and real, issues. It is certainly our right, as Americans, but let’s make sure that it’s a real issue and not a frivolous distraction.
Last word: Instead of trying to help those Americans that need help, and realizing how lucky they are to be American citizens, they show disrespect for this great country and act like a bunch of ignorant jackasses. The United States of America is the greatest country in the world, in which to live. So, the complainers need to stop with their rhetoric and actions and love where they live or leave.
