In a time when people speak of raising awareness and sacrificing everything to stand up for what they believe in, some folks bring their “A” game right from the start. Many use the platform they are given for a variety of things, though many people do not often think of a beauty pageant as such a platform. Most associate it with vapid blondes talking about their wish for world peace or some other politically correct drivel such as when Miss Virginia Emili McPhail was asked what advice she would give to players about whether to stand or to continue to kneel during the national anthem in protest.
The 22-year-old went with the politically correct “safe” answer in the onstage question. McPhail said that the players have every right to kneel, replying that not standing during the anthem “is a right you have, but it’s also not about kneeling. She also said they should be acknowledged not for protesting the anthem, but for protesting police brutality. She is a graduate of Hollins University, where she studied communications.
Fox News reports “Some NFL players have said they take a knee during the playing of the anthem to protest police brutality and social injustice.
The protest has deeply divided the country, with some calling it disrespectful to the American flag and the military. President Trump has repeatedly criticized the NFL and the players over their actions.
After the competition, McPhail was asked by reporters if she was concerned that her answer would alienate those with opposing views.
“You’re entitled to your own opinion, but I stood up for what I believed was right,” McPhail said.”
Miss Michigan, aka Emily Sioma, took a different tactic. Despite not winning, Miss Michigan might be on her way to the most-viewed pageant moment ever for far more important—and even more badass—reasons.
Rather than use her introductory moment to highlight her personal achievements which is the usual custom – you know how it goes, “Hi, here’s all about me…but enough about that! Let’s talk more about ME!” – Emily chose to take the opportunity to remind the world that Flint, Michigan is STILL after FOUR years facing a water crisis.
“From the state with 84 percent of the U.S. freshwater but none for its residents to drink,” Sioma said, “I am Miss Michigan Emily Sioma.”
And cue that mic drop…
Sioma did not win the Miss America crown. That honor went to Nia Franklin or Miss New York, however, Miss Michigan, well let’s just say she stole the show during the opening interviews and put that image of vapid beauty queen to shame.
After nearly four years of an ongoing water crisis where something as vital as fresh drinking water right here in America, the lead-contaminated water pipes in Flint, Michigan are finally getting replaced. This is after a lawsuit in which the city of Flint and the state of Michigan were forced to agree via court order to fund the project replacing around 18,000 lead water lines by the year 2020. According to the settlement now filed with the courts, the state of Michigan is required to earmark $87 million for the project and to also set aside an additional $10 million for just in case.
Until all the pipes are replaced, the state will still have to deliver bottled water to residents under court settlement and ensure that homes are properly equipped with water filters as well as being properly installed. The people of Flint have dealt with a lot in the past few years.
NBC News reports “Flint’s water crisis began as a cost-cutting measure in 2014, when the city switched its water source from Detroit’s municipal service to water from the Flint River, which it treated itself. Unlike Detroit’s, the Flint system didn’t use chemicals to inhibit materials in the water that accelerate corrosion in lead and iron pipework — potentially exposing the city’s 100,000 residents to lead and other contaminants.”
Adding insult to injury after the city of Flint created the situation leading to residents’ lead exposure, the city warned 8,000 Flint homeowners that they could get slapped with tax liens if they are more than six months behind on their water accounts. Failure to pay a tax lien could eventually result in foreclosure. So basically the city of Flint said we are going to poison you and force you to pay for it. If you don’t? Well, we will just take your house.
And Sioma put all that on Front Street with just a few short words.
According to Elle Magazine – Sioma is from Grass Lake, Michigan and a graduate of the University of Michigan. She did not kneel, nor did she make millions in endorsement campaigns. She showed no disrespect toward any group and yet her message was loud and clear. She used her voice, raising awareness about a vital and important issue affecting people of color in America’s poorest city with an ethnic demographic that is 57% black and only 37% white. A city not even her own, yet believing her platform was one where she could be heard, she chose to speak and the world listened. World…stand up! Pay attention! THIS is what a leader looks like.

Alyssa Milano Struggles To Believe Jussie Smollett Would Commit MAGA Hate Hoax
Well…it seems whiny Celebrity Alyssa Milano is having a hard time believing that Jussie Smollett would actually fake a hate crime attack, wondering who “could be that hurtful.”
“If that man staged his own attack he is wrong in so many ways. No one could be that hurtful? To stage this? Right?” Alyssa Milano pleaded on Twitter.
“To fuck with all of us by playing into our weaknesses & make it even harder for victims to come forward?! No one could choose to be that hurtful? Right?! RIGHT?”

According to reports over the weekend, Chicago police now believe that Empire actor Jussie Smollett orchestrated an attack on himself by paying two men to beat him.
“Chicago Police believe Jussie Smollett paid two men to orchestrate the assault. The sources tell CNN that the two men are now cooperating fully with law enforcement,” tweeted CNN crime and justice reporter Shimon Prokupecz Saturday evening.
Earlier Saturday, Fox 32 Chicago’s Rafer Weigel, citing several police sources, reported Abimbola “Abel” and Olabinjo “Ola” Osundairo — the two Nigerian brothers arrested and later questioned by police about the alleged incident — purchased the rope found around the actor’s neck the night of the alleged attack at an ACE hardware store.
CBS Chicago’s Charlie De Mar reports at least one of the brothers bought the rope at Craft Beaver hardware store the weekend of January 25th. The rope was purchased at the direction of Smollett, De Mar, citing sources, added.
Hoaxster Smollett previously claimed that he was the victim of a racist and homophobic attack in downtown Chicago in January. The “attackers” also allegedly shouted “This is MAGA country!” during the attack.
When the news originally broke of the alleged attack, many Hollywood celebrities used it to cast blame on President Trump and his supporters.
“Heartbroken and furious reading about the attack on JussieSmollett. I want Trump and all MAGA lunatics to burn in Hell,” actor Billy Eichner said last month.

Faking a hate crime, faking a lynching, in order to frame a group of people you don’t agree with, should be charged as a hate crime! This is how mentally ill the left is. It’s time for lawsuits. Apologies don’t mean anything so we should stop asking for them. These mentally ill folks are hell-bent on destroying innocent lives.
I saw this meme someone had posted recently. Which explains this so well.
“Only in 2019, would a gay black actor, pay Nigerians $4k a piece, to buy a rope, throw it around his neck and beat him up in order to blame white folks. Happy Black History Month!”
Sure explains the mentally ill left well. How sick you have to be to pay people to beat you up so you can blame it on white people. Because you hate white people that bad..
Welcome to the racist left,folks!
Malia Obama’s Secret Facebook Account Reveals How Much She Hates Trump
Can you imagine being brought up with so much hate at such a young age?
Well..it seems Malia Obama’s secret Facebook page has reportedly been found, and it divulges her true feelings about President Donald Trump.
Malia Obama described President Trump as ‘evil’ on her secret Facebook page where she exchanges messages friends including Joe Biden’s granddaughter, Daily Mail revealed.
The Facebook page operates under a pseudonym and does not appear to have been publicly updated since 2017.
Its cover photograph is of a row of pink post-it notes which read: ‘Donald Trump is President,’ ‘This is not normal’, ‘Donald Trump is evil’ and ‘Don’t be complacent.’
Among the comments written beneath the photograph is one by Biden’s 20-year-old granddaughter Finnegan.
She said: ‘Never saw this. I like it.’
There were some other political activity on the page, including a petition demanding action after the shooting at a Las Vegas country music festival left 58 people dead.
Malia is attending Harvard and had moved into freshman dorms in August 2017, a few months after she posted it on her profile.
She had been living in New York City in the months beforehand while interning at The Weinstein Company. Weinstein offered Malia an internship as a favor to her father, Barack Obama.
There are some other personal posts and pictures as well, showing the travels Malia took during the year before starting Harvard University.

Amazing how she calls President Trump “evil”….yet she was interning for Weinstein who has sexually abused many women in Hollywood. The left never ceases to amaze me. And nothing is scarier than when radical leftists have children. They raise them to be hateful human beings. These kids are subject to full-court-press Leftist propaganda 24/7.
Malia Obama is another example of a brainless liberal. Once you’ve declared someone “evil” there are no barriers for anything you do to them. No more analysis or intelligent evaluations to be made.
She has long since joined the ranks of “useless idiots.”
Funny… She doesn’t want to talk about her daddy who financed terror via Iran to the tune of $150 billion dollars.
She doesn’t know the definition of evil. The apple sure doesn’t fall very far from the tree.. this poor soul is just about as dumb as her racist father and mother.
