Here are some takeaways in the aftermath of the events in Charlottesville, VA on Saturday August 12, 2017.
I disavow all people and groups associated with, or representing, Nazism, national socialism, and the KKK.
Nazism was dead and gone long ago. It’s only trotted out by simple-minded fools who are trying to be edgy, or when there is a legitimate target to smear, as the corpse of David Duke keeps doing.
President Trump disavowed David Duke 17 years ago. Now he endorses Trump as revenge. Dukes comments wreak of a paid smear job.
National Socialism is of not the Right; it’s of the Left. National. Socialism. Is. Not. Of. The. Right. Nazi LARPers are not a part of the right, let alone the One Real Alt-Right.
“White Nationalism” makes no sense. Only Americans with a vague sense of white/black/other nationality distinctions use the phrase.
Most Americans don’t stop to realize that Swedes, Poles, French, German, Brits, Welsh, Irish, Scottish, Dutch, Finns, Swiss, etc, are ALL WHITE, but of DIFFERENT NATIONALITIES. Have Europeans found solidarity in the color of their skin, or do they value a much deeper understanding of their own distinct peoples and culture? When the white nationalist William Wallace fought the white imperialist English, was he the good guy or bad guy? Continue reading
At least the portion applied to freedom of religion.
The City of Belle Plaine has received pressure from atheists and Satanists to remove a war memorial that
featured a cross. After their efforts failed, the Satanic Temple proposed their own monument, called the “Baphometic Bowl of Wisdom.”
It is a black, steel cube. Inverted pentagrams (a universal Satanic symbol) are etched into the sides of the monument. A pitch black, overturned soldier’s helmet is planted on the top.
It is named after Baphomet, an androgynous half-goat, half-man demon.
Satanists are claiming that this monument respects veterans. And the city of Belle Plaine has accepted it.
I wonder how many years out America is from restricting or amending the 1st Amendment to the Constitution. Or more likely, no legal change will be made, but rather the spirit of freedom and tolerance for other beliefs, which is quickly eroding, will simply disappear.
This is the catch-22 of American freedom that allows the existence of beliefs and behaviors that undermine the core values it rests on.
For example, Libertarianism is completely untenable; as follows. Libertarianism > freedom of commerce, association, and travel > libertarian values allow no restrictions on who can move into the community or what values they should hold > new arrivals much prefer authoritarian policies > poof! Your free society is gone. Libertarian values restrict the group’s ability to maintain its libertarian community. Sown into core of the system is its own self-defeating value.
Same is true for Christian communities (or those who wished for one). When your societal ideal rests on freedom of religion, tolerance, acceptance, and not the Gospel of Jesus Christ, you’ll soon find you have no ability to influence your culture or community. Your own values require you to support the rights and access and influence of Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, and even Satanic worship.
Well, that certainly is diverse.
As opposed to how I used to do it in high school, I actually read books now. I can’t believe how easy it was to get through class without actually reading the material, and I probably missed out on some classics. I have to re-read Animal Farm, but I digress….
I have more books that I’m currently reading than have completed for 2017.
You are witnessing insanity. I am not referring to the insanity of Islamic terror – that’s not insane, just demonic.
You are watching the destruction of a culture, built over thousands of years – destroyed in a few generations. I am not referring to the destruction of jihadis who just detonated a nail bomb to rip apart children, including 8-yr-old girls, as they enjoy an Ariana Grande concert.
The insanity belongs to the people of the West; the so-called “leaders” of democracy and liberal values. To those who continue to spout banal, poopy-talk like
The destruction is not by suicide vests, but by a domestic security policy that allows, nay invites, a foreign invasion on a scale unprecedented in human history. I say again – unprecedented in human history.
Newly declassified CIA documents show that the CIA was paying journalists and media companies to plant stories or suppress others. Among them, the New York Times, Washington Post, Fortune Magazine, Los Angeles Times, and Wall Street Journal.
But that was way back in the 1950’s – 1970’s. Nothing like that happens today.
Of course a coordinated political hit must take place against AG Jeff Sessions before he rolls up all of the previous President’s DOJ officials or investigates any money laundering schemes (involving this guy who just suicided himself).
As a primer on Fake News, here’s what you need to know:
Fake News is a powerful rhetorical shiv when applied correctly. It’s a term that’s so broad and all-encompassing you’ll often see it invoked by anyone of any political leaning. But, it’s most effective when wielded with a marked truth about the dishonesty of the news-faker. This is why the use of Fake News now belongs exclusively to the right. So much so, that the Washington Post has called for an end to the term’s use, because it was so quickly, and viciously, and accurately applied to the mainstream media (MSM).
Per this Google trend chart below, you’ll see the explosion of the term “fake news” at the climax of the 2016 US presidential election. Many would have you believe that purposely false news stories made their rounds on social media during that time and may have swung the election results. But I’m here to help you set the record straight.
The real intent of the political left’s (and their foot soldiers in the MSM) use of the term “fake news” (before it was turned around on them) was to discredit real and legitimate stories and scandals. Nothing exemplifies this better than a November 6th tweet by Hillary Clinton communications person, Jennifer Palmieri.
You get that? Without knowing if a new allegation would surface, or the nature of any future allegation, or Continue reading
