British-Themed Shop in London Denounced as Racist – Cultural Suicide – Was Brexit Too Late

Source: Moonbattery » British-Themed Shop Denounced as Racist

Patriotism is thoughtcrime. Chris Ostwald should have realized that he was asking for trouble by opening a shop in London called Really British:

He told local newspaper the Ham&High: “The shop is in no way meant to be ‘political’ or ‘pro Brexit’, but we have had a lot of complaints saying it is or we are ‘racist!’” …

Flashback: Obama had three 4-stars on his team and no one seemed to mind 

News outlets ran a spate of articles and columns in recent days reflecting a level of anxiety over President-elect Trump choosing a number of retired generals for top positions in his White House. But in January 2009, President Obama appointed the same number of retired high-ranking officers to posts that Trump has so far.

Jupiter’s chaotic storms

“While the Juno science team’s policy of making all their raw images available to the public is routine for a NASA mission, they are doing something a bit different by allowing the public to play with the images and then upload them on a Juno website for everyone to see. While some of the subsequent images have been a little silly, the image on the right illustrates how this policy can help scientists (and the public) better study the atmosphere on Jupiter. The processing has brought out all the storm’s swirls and twirls, and shown clearly how chaotic the storms are in Jupiter’s high latitudes.”

Democrats: From Temper Tantrum to Self-Delusion

Democrats: From Temper Tantrum to Self-Delusion – Larry Elder

The ‘Racist’ narrative just does not hold up to reality. Democrats, please continue your racist, sexist, xenophobic rants while ignoring what used to make you a viable party – the blue/white collar worker and their families.

  • “Based on exit polls, Trump got a ‘lower’ percentage of the white vote than Mitt Romney did in 2012, and a higher percentage of the black vote and the Hispanic vote than Romney.
  • Initial post-election tabulations find that nationwide, Trump won 209 of the 676 counties that voted for Barack Obama twice — in both 2008 and 2012.
  • And he won another 194 of the 207 counties that Obama took only once — in either 2008 or 2012. Did a raft of white supremacists move in and change the vote? Or did the voters’ latent racism suddenly erupt in 2016?

Fact: When Barack Obama took office in 2009, he had, with the exception of John F. Kennedy, the highest approval ratings, 68 percent, of any elected president since Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1953. It certainly appears that Obama was black or biracial back in 2009, just as he was black or biracial when his poll numbers declined. “
