More Backup Blog thoughts Under the Fedora, Rittenhouse surprise, a lesson, Mrs. Mahoney, the FBI and approaching the line.

It amazes me that we have not had a directed verdict in the Rittenhouse case.

There was apparently a walkout at a Massachusetts school over what has been described as racist comments by a student that were in a video as students demanded an explanation.

Now I haven’t seen the video so I don’t know what these comments were, but let me provide an explanation for these students that will apply no matter what was said:

  1. Teenagers’ do stupid things
  2. In America people have the right to say stupid things

I’ve been called a cracker for making these points, but in fairness to the idiots who did so young people don’t know they are ignorant because they don’t have the experience to realize it. It isn’t till you are older that you realize how little you knew when you were young.

That story reminded me of the favorite teacher of my youth. Mrs. Thresa Mahoney died recently at the age of 97. Born the same year as my mother she was my 4th and 7th grade teacher at St. Anthony di Padua Catholic school, she taught English and always challenged us to think and more importantly taught us to think critically.

That was back in 1972 and 1975 Twenty five years later when My sons were at St. Anthony she was in the library and still teaching a Latin course that my oldest took before retiring in her early eighties She ended up outliving the school that she loved.

Oh if those idiots only had teachers like her, but alas she was not only a faithful Catholic but still knew how many actual genders there were so they would have chased her away .

Was it not just 5 years ago that if an FBI agent had knocked on my door that I would have let him or her in and presumed that they were functioning in the best interest of the country?

That the FBI has been willing to throw this away amazes me to no end, but even worse that there are apparently not enough people within the organization who are willing to fight this internally.

But then again as I’ve gotten older I’ve learned that for people it takes more courage to risk one’s life than to risk one’s pension and position particularly if your position involves risking one’s life anyways.

This is the natural and logical cost of a stolen election that people didn’t see when they decided to let it go.

Finally we seem to be getting closer and closer to the point where to quote King George III on Americans “Blows must decide if they are to be subject to this country or independent.”

The left continues to act as if the people of the right are going to continue to meekly take blows, but I would remind them of this opening scene in the movie Casino Royale.

Once we get to that opening scene then it’s going to get very bad and I really don’t think people understand what that is going to mean for the life we’ve enjoyed in America to this point.

Unless we are very careful as a nation we are going to get an education in just how good we had it before surrendering our institutions to the left.

It’s my fervent hope and prayer that we don’t’ cross that line because I suspect once it’s crossed it won’t be uncrossed
