For the past eight years, I’ve spoken against the legalization of pot in Vallejo and America, being rewarded with threats, bullying, intimidation, and attacks on my business for my efforts.
I warned that pot was directly related to violence, and that the legalization of drugs was closely linked with the downfall of nations, states, and cities, as we saw with China over two hundred years ago. After opium was introduced, she completely collapsed in a century, and had Communism take over, murdering 60 million Chinese.
Was this warning heeded? No, it wasn’t. Though Osby Davis valiantly fought against it, the rest of the City Council buckled to it, including former police officer and cureent a Mayor Sampayan, who definitely knew how much drugs and crime are related from his years on the force.
The City Council meetings to legalize pot from 2013-2015, were some of the most rowdy, chaotic, and disruptive meetings ever to be held in Vallejo. One meeting had to be halted ten times because of interruptions, IN A SINGLE NIGHT. Councilmember McConnell and Councilmember Miessner were the two biggest proponents for weed legalization, and there was a young man who kept coming to speak up for legalizing weed, and lecturing the city on their “systemic racism”. His name was Hakeem Brown.
My first encounter with Hakeem Brown was back in 2014-2015, when I attended a meeting the city put on to discuss avenues for legalizing pot. As was my habit, I showed up to discuss why I opposed pot legalization, and spoke for about three minutes, with the usual effect of being ignored and given sour looks by pot dealers who loved their profits more than the people their product poisoned.
After I spoke, in the same manner I opened this correspondence with, remarking that drug legalization resulted in populations being enslaved, a young man approached me and said my comments sounded “rayciss”. Back then, I was young and dumb, and didn’t know about the Cultural Marxist hoax, and how that was being used to silence the 63% of Americans who were white, and the smaller percentage who happened to be conservative, and Christian. So, I honestly thought I had offended Hakeem, and tried to placate him by explaining I wasn’t a racist. Little did I suspect this was simply a tactic Hakeem and others use to silence those who disagree with them, make us feel guilty, and to give themselves an unearned air of moral superiority.
I sporadically saw Hakeem at City Council meetings in the next few years, only to speak up for his drug dealing, and he occasionally spoke at hot button meetings, like speaking against the Orcem Cement Factory. This earned him many radical leftist fans, who immediately turned on him a few years later when he was supported by the police and the pro-Orcem Jumpstart committee. Understanding the Hegelian Dialectic and how the Democrat party has functioned since Woodrow Wilson’s election to the presidency in 1912, I wouldn’t be surprised if pro-Orcem and pro-police, Jumpstart forces are funded by the same folks who fund anti-police, Anti-Orcem, anti-Jumpstart forces. However, I digress.
In about 2016-2017, I was volunteering at the former Franklin Middle School, and Beverly Hills Elementary School, two schools I once attended, when Hakeem came to attend meetings as well. At Franklin, we got into a conversation, the details of which I don’t especially remember, but I do remember that Hakeem, when disagreed with, brought the race card into the conversation, and that it was tense. I remember the teacher facilitating the event nervously trying to mediate, which, considering Hakeems temperament and clout in the community, was quite a task. If I was afraid of criticizing Hakeem in public, because of the intimidating aura and demeanor he used to bully people with, I am certain others felt the same way, especially women public employees, who could lose their jobs for offending a high ranking Democrat.
Hakeem has many good qualities, and it should not be forgotten, that the list of rules he gave his wife, which she and others viewed as “controlling”, are nothing different from the order God created for the genders to excel in their respective spheres. That said, these rules cannot be enforced with brute and cruel violence. A woman’s suitability to be a wife should be determined before marriage. If she refuses to obey her husband, no wise and virtuous man will have anything to do with her. She will have to settle for a cruel and a foolish man, who will often enforce his will brutally, as Hakeem demonstrated in his younger years.
However, Hakeems criminal past, including the murder of his own child by punching the mother in the stomach, leaves him unqualified for any leadership position. He has no moral authority, and would invite the lawlessness and disrespect of authority that is already running rampant in Vallejo, to multiply. It is no coincidence that the election of Hakeem to the City Council, who easily has the worst criminal background of any candidate in Vallejos history, has coincided with the explosion of crime, with Vallejo on pace to have the highest levels of murder, violent crime, and rape in its entire history.
Hakeem must resign, and forsake his campaign for mayor, for the sake of the city, his family, and all that is decent and good. His story is powerful and can be used to instruct others with, but not in a political leadership position. The crimes committed, which can be forgiven, are too serious of a nature to permit political leadership.
It is also necessary for all those who supported Hakeem for City Council and Mayor, to seriously evaluate themselves, and to ask themselves how is it they could have supported someone so obviously unqualified for public office?
Thank you,God bless.
