Be “Perfect Victim”, “Do As They Say”: Minneapolis Govt Advises Citizens To Surrender to Criminals, Turn Over Your Valuables, Don’t Resist
By Pamela Geller / THE GELLER REPORT

They voted to disband the police. What did everyone think would happen? Not one taxpayer dollars to these barbarians. But buy plenty of guns and ammo.

The Minneapolis City Council voted unanimously last month to disband the police department, and Minneapolis Police Department offered resident tips that just may ensure the success of such a radical proposal.

In effect, police are encouraging residents to surrender to criminals as part of their “robbery prevention tips” — turn over your valuables and no matter what, don’t resist.

Two Different Shades of Black  
By:Diane Sori / The Patriot Factor / Right Side Patriots on Right Side Patriots Radio 
The liberals play the race card, because they have very little else to play when they want to try and attack conservatives, or attack somebody like me who considers themselves, I consider myself, an American black conservative.”   
- Herman Cain in a 2011 interview, and notice the word “American” comes before the word “black.”  
He was a good honorable and decent man...a true voice of conservatism, the Constitution, and the rule of law...a role model for those who strive for the American dream against all odds. A friend of presidents, a giant in the corporate world, a man who rose up from poverty who always said that his skin color was not what defined who he was as a man nor what he believed in.  
And so Herman Cain...former presidential candidate, Tea Party activist, Godfather's Pizza CEO, and co-chairman of Black Voices for name but a few of his many accomplishments...passed away in the early morning hours of July 30th from the nasty little virus from China. And while his cancer history put him at high risk for complications from COVID-19, even with his having the best care current medicine has to offer, his family's hope for a full recovery was simply not to be. 
Born on December 13, 1945, in Memphis, TN, Herman Cain was one of two sons of a cleaning woman mom and a dad who worked three jobs to provide for his family. Growing up "poor but happy" in an intact traditional family unit, Cain's mother's words set him on a path in life that sadly seems to be not trod upon by so many, a path that dictates "success is not a function of what you start out with materially, but what you start out with spiritually."  
A good lesson I'd say that many of today's young folks of all skin colors desperately need to learn. 
And learn it Herman Cain did for he lived his life via the virtues of hard work and a belief in God saying time and again that, “Success is not the key to happiness, happiness is the key to success,” something so very true. 
But this article is not solely about my eulogizing this great American patriot...since his passing so many folks have done just that and some quite eloquently I might add...but is also about how Herman Cain's passing will affect our nation's now volatile political landscape and whether that landscape can or cannot be changed...changed for the better I hope. But said change is something I fear will not be easy to come by for too many folks of a multitude of colors seem to be embracing the hard left manifestos of groups like Black Lives Matter (BLM) and Antifa...groups fueled on and funded by the very Democrat party Herman Cain ever so courageously turned his back on. 
And he did so while realizing that in today's America few Democrats of any color are taking personal responsibility for their own actions as personal responsibility has indeed taken a back seat to the Democrats “must do” list...a list espousing placing the blame on President Trump for all our country's current woes, most especially the Obama generated and ignited racial woes. And Herman Cain's passing is the political foil that they're now trying to add to that ever expanding list, and it's something that, for example, can clearly be seen in the uber liberal Washington Post's July 30th article, 'Herman Cain, former Republican presidential hopeful, has died of coronavirus, his website says.'  
And while in this article the three co-authors write that, “Although it is unclear where Cain, who was 74, contracted the disease, he was among several thousand people, most of whom did not wear masks, who attended a Trump campaign rally in Tulsa on June 20. Cain, who co-chaired Black Voices for Trump, was photographed maskless and not socially distancing at the event,” the reader needs to note how the authors focus not on Mr. Cain's many accomplishments but on the fact that the maskless Herman Cain was co-chair of "Black Voices for Trump." 

So even though no one knows exactly where or when Mr. Cain contracted the virus or is even posing those questions, the overtly left leaning authors willingly took it upon themselves to allude that President Trump is responsible for Herman Cain's death. And also being given but a cursory mention in the article is that Bob Jack, chairman of the Tulsa County Republican Party and one of the organizers of the rally did state that, “We have not received any reports of anyone contracting covid at the rally,” a message that surely needed to be brought to the public's attention. 
Yet honestly, we might never know those answers for COVID-19 has an incubation period of between two to 14 days, which means Herman Cain could have been infected before or even after the rally as he was not admitted to the hospital until July 1st. But did the authors state this they listed a few cursory Republican tributes to the man, but not one Democrat tribute was forthcoming.

But of course no Democrat tributes were mentioned in this article...if there even were any...for Herman Cain himself said it best when back a decade or so ago he told CNN's Wolf Blitzer that,
"Many African-Americans have been brainwashed into not being open-minded, not even considering a conservative point of view." No truer words spoken...and yet even with there now being a growing grassroots black conservative movement...something those like The Washington Post so love to ignore...current black politicians with an 'R' next to their name are still being slighted, shamed, or completely ignored by the Democrats...even in death...for how dare they break ranks and cross over to the predominately white...what they deem racist...right side of the political aisle. 
And this clearly is now being seen in how the Democrats are basically ignoring Herman Cain's passing for in their eyes he was and will always be an “Uncle Tom”...a man not “black enough”...a sellout deemed not worthy of being cared about...   a black man that could not be manipulated into following their liberal ways...never mind that this one man has done more for black Americans than the collective sum of useless liberal black politicians that the Democrats absolutely love to idolize.  
After all, Herman Cain's was a true “can-do” story...a story of a man born into poverty who came to represent the rise of black Americans in business, industry, and conservative politics, as well as in black folks returning to traditional family values. Herman Cain didn't just sit back and hope that one day Dr. Martin Luther King Jr's “dream” would come to fruition...he actually lived it...he worked hard for it...and he succeeded. And his was the example set that showed other black folks how through self-determination coupled with individualism plus an education could separate one from those depending on Democrat handouts as their sole means of getting through life.  
Don't blame Wall Street, don't blame the big banks. If you don't have a job and you are not rich, blame yourself!” were words Herman Cain said many times, and those words speak directly to personal responsibility being the key to anyone's success in life no matter or in spite of the color of their skin.
And Herman Cain never let his black skin color hold him back nor define him, yet others shamefully use their black skin color alone to make a political name for themselves. Such is the case with the man who has become the newest media anointed black saint to the Democrat party...recently deceased Georgia Congressman John Lewis, the 'supposed' civil rights icon. This was a man who marched with Dr. King but who in the end, I believe, brought shame to Dr. King's legacy of Republicanism and equality. To read more on just that please refer to my Right Side Patriot's partner Craig Andresen's article, John Lewis – A Bridge Too Far 
And while John always vehement critic of President Trump and one who helped lead the fight for his impeachment...did serve 17 terms in the U.S. Congress...he did little to nothing to help the vast majority of black folks living in his 5th Congressional folks who on a 1-to 6 ratio continue to live in poverty. And while Atlanta, a major part of Lewis' 5th district, saw a total number of violent crimes increasing from 1,947 in 2018 to 2,004 in 2019 (as per the latest figures available), John Lewis willingly chose to be part of today's ongoing “defund the police” movement as well as being of the mindset that only black lives matter. 
And yet for John Lewis the accolades came from both sides of the political aisle, but I think from those Republicans who honored Mr. Lewis they spoke not of the man he now was but of the altruistic man he used to be when marching alongside Dr. King. But nevertheless Republican accolades did come for John Lewis, but from Democrats none have come for Herman least none that I could find while writing this article. Just goes to show how two black men are treated differently by those who put partisan politics above all else...even coming before both civility and decency by those who only see the party letter next to one's name instead of their seeing who accomplished what in the striving for black equality.  
John Lewis was a talker, a man who especially liked to hear himself talk, yet after his fighting to help end segregation, Congressman Lewis really accomplished little to nothing for black people living within his 5th district except to “talk the talk” black folks wanted to hear. Herman Cain on the other hand surely “walked the walk” by showing black folks that opportunities abound for them here in this country, and that they just had to reach up and grab them.  
Here was a man who inspired black people to better themselves instead of continuing to make excuses for their lack of ambition. In fact, when running for president in 2011, Herman Cain said this, “One of the things that I did before I ran for president is I was a professional speaker. Not a motivational speaker - an inspirational speaker. Motivation comes from within. You have to be inspired. That's what I do. I inspire people, I inspire the public, I inspire my staff. I inspired the organizations I took over to want to succeed.” And inspire black folks he did...inspired them to the point where, I believe, Herman Cain himself gave birth to the black conservative movement. 
And so that brings me back to the beginning as to how both men's passing will affect America's political landscape, especially in regards to race relations and the BLM and Antifa violence spreading throughout numerous Democrat controlled cities. First, know that while Congressman John Lewis loved to say that he was a man who was against the use of violence as a means by which to solve problems...that peace is the true way for change”...especially when related to what the Democrats still perceive to be continued racial inequality...he is also the man who along with his fellow Democrats in the House actually refused to formally condemn the ongoing violence and mayhem that's masquerading as anything but peaceful BLM and Antifa protests.  
Now Herman Cain just a few years ago had this to say about the Black Lives Matter movement, “It is a nonmovement that has two objectives — destruction and distraction. They don’t really have a mission,” adding that, “[It is] because all lives matter.” And those words alone sadly seem to reflect the future of America's political landscape for until folks of all skin colors and political persuasions recognize and accept as fact that all lives matter, BLM and their misguided supporters will continue to tear this country apart with violence still being their sole means to a self-perceived end. And John Lewis' inactions will be but one of the many liberal ghosts that eggs them on every step of the way. 
May Herman Cain...a man truly devoted to God, family, and country...may he Rest in Everlasting Peace...amen.
