IF CONFEDERATE STATUES TRIGGER LEFTISTS, DO MOSQUES TRIGGER VETERANS?
The Confederate Statue controversy has opened the door to some interesting new discussions about what is fair and equal justice under the law for all Americans. Do all Americans have the right to preserve their heritage and rights, or is that only for a select few in special groups?
Recently Marine and Oklahoma Representative, John Bennett chimed in on the debate about whether Confederate Statues should remain standing ,by offering his unique point of view as a Veteran who served in Afghanistan.
Yet, the Media that covered his Facebook comments got his point of view wrong. Again.
In this article Representative Bennett’s words were clearly quoted and posted , yet the writer of the article decided to add a slant to his written statement with an inflammatory Title.
However, this is no surprise to Rep. Bennett, who sits on the Committee for Veterans and Military Affairs for the State of Oklahoma. He has been embattled for a long time over his concerns of American’s eroding rights and the rise of Sharia Law in America. He is used to the fight with Media.
As an American Veteran who has served in Muslim countries, one would think he would be considered an expert, and not the enemy to be dismantled.
In an interview with Big League Politics, Representative John Bennett was asked if there was anything he would like people to know about how his statement was presented in that article. “Yes” he said “I didn’t call for the removal of Mosques out of the blue. I said IF Confederate Monuments have to be removed, then Mosques should be removed as well”.
Asked why he feels the Media gets his statements wrong he said, “The Media don’t investigate. They don’t call to clarify anything or understand. The Media just goes right into calling me names and claiming I am a racist”.
Would the Media even report this if it were a Democrat Representative? Of course not.
Representative Bennett served as a Marine in Afghanistan and recalls that American Military have taken fire from Mosques, and there have even been specific Rules of Engagement on whether they can return fire from a Mosque. “It is very frustrating,” says Bennett, “to be told a Mosque is a Religious symbol and we have to use restraint when taking fire because it is a Religious ground, but our Cross is removed.”
It sounds as if Mosques are symbols of conquest. Asked if Mosques could serve as a Trigger for a Veteran with PTSD, Bennett agreed that it could possibly make a Veteran or a Family member of a Veteran very uncomfortable.
The Mosque as a Military Compound is something many Veterans see and understand. Representative Bennet has years of research and data , as well as personal contact with other national leaders on the topic who agree with him in his assessment on the dangers of Islam and the Muslim Brotherhood and the appearance of Mosques in American Culture.
So why does the Media choose to misrepresent his statements and also marginalize him from National discussions?
Bennett doesn’t claim to have a perfect answer to that. “It could be because they don’t understand, or they don’t take the time to understand what I know, or it could be because they are scared”.
Whatever the reason, the Media doesn’t seem eager to include all Americans and our different experiences and points of view in the discussions of what to protect and what to dismantle.
Representative Bennett is not sorry for his statement and he will not retract it. In fact, he doubles down.
George Floyd Had Tested Positive for Coronavirus Before His Fatal Police Encounter
Floyd once tested positive for the evil Chinese virus.
George Floyd, who has become a national rallying cry for rioters and looters across the nation since dying during a police encounter, tested positive for COVID-19 in the months prior to his death.
The full autopsy for Floyd was released on Wednesday from the Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s Office. Chief Medical Examiner Andrew Baker said that Floyd had tested positive for the coronavirus on April 3 but was reportedly asymptomatic. He also noted that Floyd’s lungs looked fine at the autopsy but he had narrow arteries in his heart, which may have resulted in the heart attack during the police encounter.
Floyd died after former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin placed his knee over his neck for nine minutes. He has now been charged with second-degree murder, as authorities tack on more charges against him in order to placate the left-wing mob at war with America.
Big League Politics has reported on the dueling autopsy reports, one from the Medical Examiner that claimed Floyd died due to a heart attack with another commissioned by Floyd’s family that claimed he died of asphyxia:
The Hennepin County Medical Examiner has announced that George Floyd, whose death during an encounter with Minneapolis police has set off nationwide riots, had fentanyl in his system during his passing with the cause of death being a heart attack.
The medical examiner claims that Floyd suffered “a cardiopulmonary arrest while being restrained by law enforcement.” In addition, the report claims that Floyd had used methamphetamine recently in addition to the fentanyl. They listed his cause of death as a homicide.
This comes shortly after the news that another medical examiner, brought onto the case by Floyd’s family attorney Benjamin Clump, determined that Floyd died from asphyxia. Forensic specialist Dr. Michael Baden determined that Floyd was dead for several minutes as he was being restrained with a knee to the back of the neck by former law enforcement officer Derek Chauvin, who is being charged with third-degree murder and manslaughter…
Baden made the case that Floyd was in good health, and the asphyxia was caused solely by Chauvin’s actions. He also determined that the handcuffs and positioning of Floyd on the ground did not allow his diaphragm to function properly, which exacerbated the asphyxia.
“When he said ‘I can’t breathe,’ unfortunately, many police are under impression that if you can talk that means you’re breathing. That is not true,” he said during the news conference.
