He’s kissing up to the pro-Hamas

- Jeanie Stephens Rosamond

Things that make one go, “Hmmm”: 1. Gov. Gavin Newsom reminded me of Jack Frost, the character played by Martin Short in that Santa Claus movie, for kissing up to the pro-Hamas movement by breaking tradition in canceling the lighting of the Christmas tree live in Sacramento, California’s state capital. I wonder what are his plans for the Chinese New Year.

2. The raising of the Palestinia­n flag in downtown Fresno, approved by its mayor during the Christian holiday season, is a slap in the face to all American Christians. Since we are a country founded on Judeo-Christian beliefs and values, will the Israeli flag be raised or will the mayor bend in the wind because he fears the pro-Hamas protesters?

3. Hunter Biden claims Republican­s are going after his father, Joe Biden, for his misdeeds in spending thousands for his out-of-control personal needs while avoiding his responsibi­lities. Hunter needs to be reminded what Pelosi said: “No one is above the law.”

4. All the major liberal news outlets claim a Donald Trump victory will be the end of democracy by only focusing and quoting Trump’s words: “after winning on day one I will drill baby drill, lock down our border and start mass deportatio­n of illegals.” Democrats must hate America like the high cost of living and America leading from behind.

5. When will progressiv­e liberals like the atheist, LGBT and assorted misinforme­d and misguided radicals “living la vida loca” who support the pro-Hamas terrorist protest for the numbers game realize they are the reason why Muslim radicals Sharia law believers call America “the great Satan”? Once full control is taken, these protesters will be labeled infidels and marked for death. Ever notice how openly out-of-the-closet gay, transgende­r or atheist Palestinia­ns are never present at these protest — in America and especially never in the Middle East, Gaza included. I’m sure there are thousands of Palestinia­ns who want peace with Israel and oppose being ruled by Hamas but are more afraid of being labeled traitors than being killed by Hamas terrorist.

Some in every race bully others

In his letter published Dec. 15, Mr. White said, “Ms. Stephens provides no examples as to what is being said to her.” I did provide the following example in my first letter. Here it is again:

In elementary school, I was sitting on a bench by myself on the school grounds. Two Black girls came and sat beside me. They talked about beating me up. I just sat there and didn’t say a word, so they left. I didn’t tell anyone, so it happened again.

Mr. White wants examples; here is another one: When I was in the third grade, my brother (LD) and I played every day with the Black kids who lived closer to us than white kids. We were the only white kids who played there.

One day we were playing hide and seek and a girl called out, I see LD. Wanting to help my brother, I said, “That’s not LD because he isn’t Black.” A teenage girl (much older than me) was standing there. She grabbed me by my hair and twisted me around and held me down and lectured me about sheets were white, not me.

At the time I did not know anything about racism and had said that just because I thought it wasn’t my brother. That incident is still vivid in my mind today.

There were more examples, but the most terrifying was in an ag botany class in Bakersfiel­d High. There were about nine Black girls in this class. Almost every day, one of them would stand up and look at a white girl and say, “What are you looking at me for?” And then a barrage of words and an invitation to fight would follow. The teacher would ignore the whole thing.

Most white girls wouldn’t even look in that direction. We were terrified that one day she would pick on us. One of my friends told me that she accepted the offer to fight, but all of the Black girls made a circle around her, so she walked away.

If Mr. White wants more examples, I have more. It is still going on today. The fact is that some people in every race bully other races and it has been going on a long time. Another fact: the poor of every race suffers and needs help, including white people and Native Americans who often get left out.
