Holyfield: ´What About
Just People´ Instead of
Parties and ´All Lives Matter´?

PJ Media, by Nicholas Ballasy

WASHINGTON – Urging Americans to stop putting a “label” on other people because “that’s when the problems start,” boxing legend Evander Holyfield told PJM that America’s two-party political system was “set up to divide” the country. Holyfield, who was in town for the National Prayer Breakfast closing dinner, also weighed in on the state of race relations in the nation, saying “every life matters” when asked about the impact of the Black Lives Matter movement. “When two people can forgive and come together and truly love each other, you know, to love someone, to know that you’re a human being, and it’s

As long as everyone agrees with me I’m fine with just people. Until everyone agrees with me we better keep the battle lines drawn.

I really want to kick back and smoke a cigar with you OP. And Holyfield too. Skin color means nothing, nothing at all. Eye shape, hair type, lips, nose... all mean nothing. There is always something else attached to those things that people choose to put meaning to. You can also choose not to put meaning to it. Both ways. I know of what I speak. He said "truly love each other". It´s not so difficult. First ting to do to be able to "truly love", then the world changes around that.

Well, Evander, everything you say is true. We should stop labeling people by race, gender, or physical appearance. But in truth, there is a political party out there that is build on division. Think about it for a moment: if there were no class warfare, no race-baiting, or no gender harassment going on, would a democrat ever win another election?

The entire democrat party is built on division. Its very existance is us vs. them. Take that away, and what do you have left? I´m not saying the GOP is completely innocent in this. But at least the GOP stands for something (most of the time) and seems willing to put the country first. So if guys like Evander are willing to step up to the plate and start knocking some heads of their own kind, then we might have a chance to turn things around.

This is one of those "War is not the answer" type of statements. OK in theory but impractical to the point of being useless in the real world. Like trying bipartisanship with Schumer.

I remember Holyfield from the 1984 Olympics, where, as the consensus has it, he was robbed of the gold medal by a controversial disqualification in his semi-final bout. He took it like a gentleman, was supremely graceful thoughout, and was recognized by the equally graceful Yugoslavian boxer who pulled him up onto the gold medalist´s stand alongside himself at the awards ceremony. Apparently Holyfield is still a class act. BTW, at that ceremony he brought a small American flag with him and waved it as he received his "consolation" bronze medal.

Yes, #4, skin is merely the cloak we were born in. I´m interested in what´s beneath that, and have always tried to treat others as fellow human beings, each equal in the eyes of the Creator. (My black friends are just as close to my heart as my white friends. We´re just people.) Holyfield´s Christianity is his most salient identifier. My admiration for him is great. He´s a good example for all. If he´s not being heard, that´s tragic.

We have been going down the wrong road for a long time. I believe President Trump is trying to change that, but even in 8 years it can´t be done.

Iranian forces in Syria have sent rockets hurtling toward army bases in the Golan Heights, across the border in Israel, according to reports. Israel fired back on Thursday, hitting dozens of Iranian targets in Syria. The exchange was the first outbreak of military violence since President Donald Trump pulled out of the Iran nuclear deal, a move that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu strongly supported. On Thursday, the White House condemned Iran’s rocket attacks but failed to mention Israel’s strikes on military targets in Syria. “The United States condemns the Iranian regime’s provocative rocket attacks from Syria against Israeli citizens,

Noam Chomsky may not be a household name in most circles, but the philosopher and linguist has a reputation in academic and political circles for his outspoken radical left worldview. In a recent 90-minute speech at St. Olaf College (no word if Rose Nylund is an alumna), Chomsky declared that he knows the biggest threat to the world. And boy, is it a doozy! So, is the truest threat to the world North Korea? Is it Iran or ISIS? How about Russia or China? Nope. According to Chomsky, nuclear war and climate change are pretty scary, but the big threats

U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson is a fitness fanatic who does crunches and push-ups at age 75. He says he approaches every campaign "scared as a jackrabbit" and consistently wins. But he may have met his match in Gov. Rick Scott, who puts in 16-hour days and crisscrosses the state in a personal jet. A month into their Senate battle — one with implications about the control of power in Washington — Republican Scott has set a torrid pace, forcing the low-key Democrat Nelson into a position he´s never faced: playing catch-up. • Scott alone has spent $5 million on TV commercials, one

A new poll partially released Wednesday indicated a huge surge for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud party following US President Donald Trump’s withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal. The survey, conducted immediately after Trump’s Tuesday announcement and partially released by Army Radio, found that if elections were held now, Likud would win 42 seats, a huge jump from its current 30 seats in the Knesset. According to the poll, Likud would have more that twice as many seats as any other party in the 120-seat Knesset. A series of previous polls had Likud more or less holding steady at its current

President Donald Trump’s announcement Tuesday that the United States would withdraw from the nuclear deal with Iran marks a dangerous phase for American national security. It gives Iranian hardliners the cover they need to rekindle Iran’s nuclear program, threatens Israel by weakening the oversight of Iran’s nuclear activities and sends a message to North Korea that the United States cannot be trusted in a deal to rein in the North’s own nuclear ambitions. Once again, Trump has removed U.S. leadership from the global stage without any meaningful purpose, thoughtful explanation or even a Plan B. Trump’s move was as senseless as

News that "Eric Schneiderman, New York’s attorney general ... long ... a liberal Democratic champion of women’s rights, and recently ... an outspoken figure in the #MeToo movement against sexual harassment" may himself have been an abuser is a reminder that public virtue may conceal private vice. If the accusations prove true his fall from a height will make the disappointment of former admirers all the greater. It is human nature to fear unseen danger more than one in plain view. Nothing is more feared in military strategy than the surprise attack. Horror movie writers know that by concealing rather than

With more than 60 percent of West Virginia’s precincts reporting, Patrick Morrisey, the state’s Attorney General, holds the lead in the Republican Senate primary. He’s at 36 percent. Rep. Evan Jenkins is in second place with 28 percent. Don Blankenship, whom we criticized here, is in third place. His share of the vote is just under 20 percent. In raw vote terms, Morrisey leads Jenkins by about 7,000 votes and Blankenship by about 15,000. Early in the ballot counting, Blankenship admitted that the returns didn’t look good for him. He was right. Blankenship has suggested that he might run in the general election

'Without the JCPOA, the United States could eventually be left with a losing choice between a nuclear-armed Iran or another war in the Middle East,' he said.

Years ago, Henry Kissinger wisely observed that Iran had to decide “whether it wants to be a nation or a cause.” Kissinger made that comment in 2006, and in the years since, Iran’s leaders have made their choice bloody obvious: Iran is a cause, and that cause is spreading a violent Shia revolution throughout the Mideast and across the world. In making the decision to commit murder and mayhem abroad while oppressing their own people, the ruling mullahs sealed their fate with President Trump.

John McCain’s Republican Party is over, perhaps before it even got started. That’s the argument Daniel McCarthy makes at Spectator/USA. It is worth considering. McCain has always enjoyed being called a “maverick”—a moniker used by friend and foe alike in describing him.(Snip)Yet McCain, in spite of his fairly unoriginal path to advancement (is there a quicker way for a Republican to get the attention of the media than to denounce his own party?), did manage to stumble into a formula that for one brief shining moment looked like it might work for him and for the GOP in 2008.
