Trump Goes After the Cancer
Another Tuesday is upon us, my Kruiser Morning Briefing friends. I sincerely hope you’re all having a good one so far.
The post-Labor Day home sprint to the presidential election is also now upon us. It’s time for the candidates to refine their messages and swing for the fences.
While Crazy Joe the Wonder Veep continues history’s most tragic struggle with teleprompter reading, President Trump is busy using the power of the incumbency to laser-focus and finish big. The reason that the media is working hard to keep the hit piece on Trump by The Atlantic alive is to deflect from Biden’s complete lack of a real campaign.
President Trump is getting around to something that I’ve been hoping he’d tackle for a while. The mainstream media has been writing a fiction story about Black Lives Matter for years now and really slathering on the glowing embellishments since everything hit the fan in May.
A few months ago, a good friend, who doesn’t bury her nose in political news 24/7, asked me to describe Black Lives Matter in just a few words. I replied, “It’s a Marxist, anti-cop movement. ”
If you’ve got a more succinct — and correct — description, please share it with me.
The big problem with celebrities who have been eager to agree with the sentiment that black lives matter is that most of them don’t understand that they’re endorsing the organization Black Lives Matter and all it stands for. The one exception is the National Basketball Association. I truly believe that the league knows exactly what it’s signed onto.
President Trump has the best platform to push back against the BLM-as-justice-seeking-saints narrative, and he’s doing it well now. Tyler wrote about Trump’s recent moves to counter the critical theory cancer that’s plaguing the United States:
On Friday, Russell Vought, director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), sent a memo to the heads of executive departments and agencies, ordering them to cease using curricula based on Marxist critical theory for their employee trainings.
“It has come to the President’s attention that Executive Branch agencies have spent millions of taxpayer dollars to date ‘training’ government workers to believe divisive, anti-American propaganda,” Vought wrote. The OMB director seems to have been referring to the 1,483 pages of Department of Defense (DOD) training materials Judicial Watch unearthed in July. An April 2015 training, for instance, branded the idea that “individual effort is key to success” as a form of “Racist Behavior.”
Vought referenced training sessions that teach that “virtually all White people contribute to racism” and others claiming that “there is racism embedded in the belief that America is the land of opportunity or the belief that the most qualified person should receive a job.”
Critical race theory is the rocket fuel that makes BLM violent. None of it is about George Floyd, despite the constant media reassurances that that’s what is motivating them.
The BLM/Antifa violence is obviously playing into Trump’s hands. The riots may guarantee his re-election. It speaks well of his leadership instincts that his detractors say he doesn’t have—that he’d rather expose them and shut them down even if it might work out better for him if they continued to rage on.
Trump also took aim at the execrable “1619 Project” from The New York Times. More from Tyler:
On Sunday, President Trump also brought a similar strategy to the Department of Education (DOE). He responded to someone warning that California schools have started teaching from the 1619 Project, which claims that America’s true founding came not with the Declaration of Independence in 1776 but with the arrival of the first black slaves in 1619.
(While the first black slaves arrived in the land that would become South Carolina as early as 1526, the 1619 Project is more concerned with branding America as inherently and fundamentally racist than with particular dates. The project’s founder, Nikole Hannah-Jones, has admitted that her enterprise is “not about history,” but rather about “memory” and the “national narrative.”)
As for schools teaching from the 1619 Project, the president tweeted that the “Department of Education is looking at this. If so, they will not be funded!”
Hit ’em where it hurts: the money.
The “1619 Project” is just another mainstream media work of fiction intent on keeping alive the critical race theory notion that all white people are racist all the time. It’s divisive, actually racist garbage that was funded and published by a pathetic progressive American media white guilt fever dream.
BLM’s Marxist roots are proof that the end game is the destruction of our institutions. We’ve seen that with the defund police stuff this summer.
Good for Trump for going after the academic commie crap that ignited and perpetuates the anti-American violence.

Great interview between Carson and Pryor here. Even Pryor’s digs at Reagan in the beginning were funny because his timing is perfect. He also didn’t dwell on politics, like the political screed hacks of today. You’ll lament the current state of late-night talk shows even more after this.
I’m just one raging ball of COVID questionable choices now.
