Not too long ago, I wrote about how likely voters agree with Trump that this country needs patriotic education, and I also agreed with that notion, knowing that the Left is teaching Marxist communism in our schools, indoctrinating the skulls full of mush into being commie puppets. Well, perhaps unsurprisingly, teaching kids the wrong thing begins by teaching kids nothing.
A recent study by the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany showed some astounding and shocking results, to say the least. According to the New York Post, “Nearly 20 percent of millennials and Gen Z in New York believe Jews caused the Holocaust…”
How, exactly, do you even manage to do this? What could you possibly be teaching kids about the Holocaust that leads them to believe that the most well-known victims of it WERE THE ONES THAT CAUSED IT?!
And this begs the following question: is this a failure of education or is it deliberate spreading of disinformation by the school system?
I really don’t know, and I certainly don’t have evidence to support the latter option, but this is, at best, a MONUMENTAL failure by the New York school system.
Now, usually, roughly 20% of people believing something isn’t a whole lot, but it is a massive deal when we are talking about this particular subject. You have to be trying really hard to get young people to believe that the Holocaust was caused not by Hitler or Nazi Germany but by the Jews themselves, despite the extremely well-known fact that six million Jews died in concentration camps during that time period.
Seriously, that particular fact is up there in terms of most common knowledge, like the Pythagorean theorem, the fact that the mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cell and that Columbus sailed the ocean blue in 1492 (not that that’s the most common thing taught regarding Columbus in the modern education system). If you’ve finished grade school, you know about how six million Jews died in the Holocaust and that they were the group of people most often killed in that horrific event.
Well, at least, I assume that people would know this. Given these news, and the fact that it’s been years since I’ve finished high school, let alone grade school, I’m not even confident that the school systems are even teaching this anymore.
Chances are that instead of teaching about the Holocaust, teachers might just be giving their students lectures about how racist this country is, how it was founded by racists and for racists, and how if you are a white kid, you have white privilege, while if you are not a white kid, you are a victim. Chances are that instead of teaching kids about history, the schools are teaching them about gender identity and other bullcrap.
I wouldn’t know since I don’t have a kid myself, so maybe a parent with a child in grade school could look over the assignments (as they should, particularly considering Leftist teachers don’t seem to want parents paying attention to what they are teaching the kids) to verify whether or not I am in any way correct, but I really wouldn’t be surprised if I’m not too far off.
At any rate, returning to the NY Post, they also reported that “although there were more than 40,000 camps and ghettos during World War II, 58 percent of respondents in New York cannot name a single one.”
This one is almost as bad as the nearly 20% who think the Jews are responsible for the Holocaust (and now that I think about it, considering how anti-Semitism has been on the rise in that craphole of a city, perhaps anti-Semitism is at least partly to blame for kids believing that nonsense). Nearly 60% of New York respondents couldn’t name even one concentration camp? Not even Auschwitz, which is undoubtedly the most infamous of them all?
But here is another number that is even more astonishing and awful: “60 percent of respondents in New York do not know that 6 million Jews were killed during the Holocaust.”
So I was kind of right, then. If that many young New Yorkers don’t know that fact, it’s because the schools aren’t teaching it.
How in the world is it that 60% of New York respondents don’t know that six million Jews were killed in the Holocaust? What exactly is being taught in those schools, because it's clear they aren't teaching historical facts relating to it.
Now, according to the study, 34% said they believe the Holocaust happened but that “the number of Jews who died has been greatly exaggerated or believe the Holocaust is a myth and did not happen or are unsure.”
Let’s begin with the first issue, that they think the number is exaggerated. I believe that one can be relatively explained by misinformation online and things like that, because there are people out there who outright deny that the Holocaust happened, despite the fact that we have people alive today WHO WERE THERE WHEN IT HAPPENED. One of them was even invited by Trump to one of his State of the Union addresses and Trump talked about how our U.S. military freed him and he thought they were angels sent by God (and basically, they were).
We have people who are alive today who are actual victims of the Holocaust, who were interned in one of the camps. Auschwitz has been turned into a memorial which one can visit in Poland. How does anyone come to the belief that the Holocaust didn’t happen, or it was exaggerated?
How does anyone miss that six million Jews were killed during this time? Well, I suppose by having far-Left teachers more focused on teaching critical race theory or gender fluidity or parroting climate cultist talking points than teach a class that six million Jews died during the Holocaust, and therefore, there is NO WAY the Jews could have possibly been responsible for it.
But here is a number that is truly shocking, more so than the others, which even I am at an absolute loss over: “A shocking 28 percent of respondents in New York believe it is acceptable to hold neo-Nazi views…”
Considering how much of an effort the American Left and the fake news media makes to paint Trump as “literally Hitler” or as a Nazi, you would think that considerably fewer people would find neo-Nazi views acceptable. Never mind that neo-Nazis are white supremacists who are Nazis themselves, and that alone should lead the vast majority of people to reject them, but it is especially surprising considering that the Left makes a great effort in painting Trump as one such person.
My best guess as to why this is is that, like I said before, there has been a massive rise in anti-Semitism in New York. Orthodox Jews have been, more and more often, the target of anti-Semitic attacks, discrimination, etc. Before the pandemic began, back in December of last year, I wrote an article that talked about a number of horrific anti-Semitic attacks happening in New York. Of course, there were a lot more incidents than the one I talked about in that article, but still, it was clear that New York had and likely still has a huge anti-Semitism problem.
This, perhaps, can explain some of the numbers we are seeing, but it is still unbelievable to see such numbers. Granted, I wasn’t exactly expecting the best out of New York, but still. Even going by the Leftist narratives that Trump is a Nazi, considering how many Democrats there are in that city, you would think they would be considerably less tolerant of neo-Nazi views (or at least, the ones that are openly neo-Nazi, considering that socialism is something that they seem to love).
That so many young New Yorkers think that the Jews are to blame for the Holocaust is baffling. It sounds like satire, but it’s reality. Granted, it’s not a majority and it’s nowhere close to a majority, but nearly 20% of millennials and Gen Zers in New York thinking that the Jews caused the Holocaust is a catastrophic failure in education, at best. At worst, it is a malignant attempt to literally blame the victim for the atrocity in an effort to sow further division and chaos.
There need to be SERIOUS changes made in the schools in this country. Not only do we need patriotic education, we need education IN GENERAL because clearly, these kids aren’t learning jack, and the things they are learning are useless garbage that won’t help them in the real world apart from making them communist puppets and useful idiots for the Left.
I hope something major is done about this, but changes need to happen at the top. Here’s hoping the people of New York have enough sense to boot their dangerous and lunatic leaders out of office and that the GOP can offer solid solutions for them.

As you may know, Vice Presidential candidate Kamala Harris this week during a virtual roundtable discussion referred to the “Harris Administration” and its plans for America. This is very concerning for two reasons, but before I get to that point let me share with you what she said:
“A Harris administration, together with Joe Biden as the president of the United States – the Biden-Harris administration will provide access to $100 billion in low-interest loans and investments for minority business owners.”
Some analysts think that this was a slip of the tongue and having a “Biden moment” (in reference to Biden’s declining cognitive abilities), while others think this is a message to the Democrat base and donors who are worried about Biden’s inability to lead the country due to the fact that he’s clearly not fit for office.
Regardless of the reasons why Harris mentioned a “Harris Administration” at all, the fact of the matter is that we know that a Harris Administration is what we're going to get if Democrats win in November. We know Biden’s not fit for office, clearly showing signs of dementia. And some speculate Harris will be sworn into office within the first month into the new Administration.
It's not just what some analysts think, it's also what Trump himself thinks as well. Let’s not forget that Trump himself has called Biden a “Trojan Horse” for the ultra-left to illegitimately gain power without really earning it through running for office, like the Constitution demands. Socialism or communism will never win elections fair and square, so they figure this is the way they’re going to steal it from American citizens.
There are two things that puzzle me about this.
The first one is this: why does the Democrat base even want to vote for the Biden-Harris ticket when they themselves rejected Kamala Harris during the primaries? She was utterly rejected by the base and was forced to drop out of the race quite early, really. If you remember, it was Tulsi Gabbard that finished her off in about 40 seconds during a debate. Remember what Tulsi said?
"Senator Harris says she's proud of her record as a prosecutor and that she'll be a prosecutor president. But I'm deeply concerned about this record. There are too many examples to cite but she put over 1,500 people in jail for marijuana violations and then laughed about it when she was asked if she ever smoked marijuana. She blocked evidence -- she blocked evidence that would have freed an innocent man from death row until the courts forced her to do so. She kept people in prison beyond their sentences to use them as cheap labor for the state of California."
So there you have it – in just those few seconds Kamala Harris was toast. She dropped out soon after that.
In other words, Tulsi Gabbard took Kamala Harris out as she EXPOSED the now VP candidate for the racist and corrupt piece of garbage she truly is. As a result, the Democrat base responded the only way they could respond: by withdrawing their support for Harris.
And now what? They rejected Harris earlier this year and now they’re about to vote for her as VP so that she can become the President they didn’t want in the first place? How do you reconcile that if you’re a Democrat? And I mean a regular Democrat, not a privileged Democrat like Hunter or Obama. I mean the base. How do you swallow this pill? You don’t want her but nevertheless the DNC imposes her onto you as the President you never really wanted? And you’re still going to vote her in? Why?
And the second thing that puzzles me about this is this: Do regular people realize that if we do indeed get a “Harris Administration” the level of violence in this country will go up? And pushed by the Harris Administration itself? I know a lot of people are talking about how violent democrats are going to become if they lose – they’re PROMISING to be more violent. So that’s a given. But if Biden-Harris win in November, history tells us that the violence will come from the Administration itself – there is no Communist or Socialist government in the world today or in history that hasn’t ruled and oppressed its people by force.
Kamala will remember very well that it was first the DEMOCRAT BASE that rejected her – she will make sure THAT doesn’t happen again and oppression will begin exactly there. The useful idiots that were supposed to make her the Democrat nominee will suffer the wrath of a rejected woman who won’t forgive or forget.
And, of course, then it’s the Republicans who will be targeted – it wouldn’t be the first time, as you know. The KKK was the terrorist army of the DNC back in the day with a mission to kill Republicans. Since black people were 100% Republican back then, you can imagine it was easy for the Dems to identify and massacre the enemy.
The Democrats MUST be utterly defeated this November. Our freedoms depend on it. Go vote in person!

Surprising Polls: Near-Majority Of Portlanders Favor Police Efforts Against Riots, Disapprove Of Mayor
Oregon is a deep-blue state largely because of the deep-blue city of Portland, where their motto is literally “Keep Portland weird,” demonstrating how morally bankrupt many in that city are. Which is why it’s so surprising to see the poll numbers that we see come out of that city and state altogether (though the rest of the state, being more agricultural, is understandably more conservative).
According to DHM Research, in a poll taken between September 3rd and the 8th, 42% of respondents believed that police should use more force against the rioters, with 18% feeling the current force is satisfactory.
This is surprisingly high, considering that the Leftist media has made it their mission to demonize the police as much as humanly possible, taking important context out of situations to make them look bad, naturally leading to incidents like the L.A. officers who were shot in cold blood (thankfully, expected to survive their injuries) and with BLM bastards gathering around the LA hospital the officers were taken to chanting “We hope they die.”
Despite the media’s best efforts to get officers maligned and killed (yes, I have no qualms about pointing out that the media has blood on their hands for every single officer who is killed as a result of their evil misreporting of events), the polls show that these efforts are not really paying off whatsoever for the Left (and thank God for that).
Even more surprising than the number of respondents who believe the Portland PD should use more force is the number of respondents who disapproved of the protests: 66% (and before you comment, there is a reason I called it “protests” instead of riots this time, which you will see momentarily). According to the poll: “Voters ages 18-29 are the only group to approve of the protests, with 62% saying that they approve compared to 33% who disapprove.”
That particular part is not quite as surprising, considering voters in that age group usually make up the body of the protesters and rioters. The rioters aren’t the ones who own any of these businesses or work in any of these areas, if at all. They are also among the youngest people, who have been recently, or in the process of being, indoctrinated into the communist, Marxist beliefs that the schools and universities spread. Of course they approve of these protests: they believe the lies fed to them about what they represent.
They buy into the idea that America is illegitimate and racist by its very founding and that these protests are Civil Rights-esque in trying to establish equality and other things which are already present.
But while the number of young people supporting the protests is not surprising, the number of people who disapprove of it overall is. Again, a full two-thirds of respondents disapproved of the protests. And it’s not like the respondents were all that far from the riots. DHM Research reported that “Nearly half of the participants said they lived in either Multnomah, Clackamas or Washington counties,” all of which are near or around Portland, with Multnomah and Washington counties being the closest.
A quarter of the respondents said they lived in Willamette Valley, which is also pretty close to Portland. So these are, for the most part, people who are near or around the sites of the riots. Given their close proximity, it shouldn’t be such a surprise that they would disapprove of the riots happening, but you never know with people in Portland (then again, having lived in Washington county, even while it’s pretty close to downtown Portland, there is a considerable difference between Portland and the smaller cities and counties surrounding it. You aren’t so likely to see a transgender homeless man with green hair and tattoos outside of downtown).
Point is, these are people who are right there and who are directly affected by the riots, the police response and the mayor and governor’s response to the situation.
Speaking of whom, let’s look over their approval ratings, shall we? The DHM Research poll also conducted a job approval poll for Governor Kate Brown and found that only 10% of respondents approve of her response to the protests. Still, Governor Brown’s approval rating was still slightly better than Mayor Ted Wheeler’s, whose approval rating was just 8%. Meanwhile, 46% of Oregon voters approved of the Portland PD response to the riots and 45% disapproved.
What’s more, according to DHM Research: “At the end of the survey, we asked voters what word is a more accurate description of the events in Portland: 55% said riot and 37% said protest.”
Keep these numbers in mind as I show you a different recent poll. According to Oregon Live, “a separate survey of 435 Portland voters published Tuesday showed Wheeler drew an unfavorable rating of 63%, around three-quarters of respondents said they supported the Black Lives Matter movement and close to 70% said they supported the Portland protests.”
Interesting numbers all around. First, of course, there is the 63% disapproval of Wheeler, which is not quite as surprising when you recognize that his approval rating (for the response) is just 8%. Unsurprisingly, people don’t like the uber-Leftist mayor who at every given chance attacks DHS Acting Secretary Chad Wolf, his agency and President Trump, blaming them for the violence which has been present for years due to the rise of Antifa in that city. Remember, riots and Antifa violence have been going on in Portland for far longer than the George Floyd riots.
Well, I say it’s unsurprising largely because it really shouldn’t be a surprising thing. If any mayor in just about any other town or city had the problems Portland has and acted in the way Wheeler has, they would receive a lot of scorn and scrutiny and bad poll numbers as a result. But I usually don’t expect such things to happen in deep-blue cities like Portland, Seattle, L.A., NYC, etc.
But let’s move on to the other two numbers that that particular poll shared: the roughly three-quarters of people who support the Black Lives Matter movement and the 70% who support the protests.
First, a distinction must be made regarding BLM. It makes sense to support the black lives matter movement because black lives do, indeed, matter, as do all lives. The “Black Lives Matter” organization, however, which I have begun simply calling “BLM” because I don’t believe they care about black lives and think that “Burn, Loot, Murder” is what they really stand for, given that is basically all they do with approval from local chapter leadership, is not something that ought to be supported, respected or at all thought of positively. BLM, like Antifa, is nothing more than the Left’s modern KKK. They are a military branch of the American Left and their job is to cause strife, division and destruction.
Black lives don’t matter to BLM because protecting black lives is not their goal. However, when one is asked “do you support the black lives matter movement”, usually, one will say that they do because they believe that black lives matter, which they do because ALL lives matter. The issue is that when someone is verbally asked if they support such a movement, one type of person will say they support it because they think black lives matter as do all lives (such as myself) while another person will say they support it because they support the Burn, Loot, Murder organization and what it’s trying to do.
So I wouldn’t put too much stake into 75% support for the Black Lives Matter movement because it could encompass different people with different beliefs answering it with different stigmas in mind.
However, that 70% support for the protests is puzzling because of the other poll from DHM Research. To remind you, DHM Research found that 66% of respondents disapproved of the protests. How then, could 70% support the protests and 66% disapprove of them?
And this is why I called them “protests” earlier as opposed to “riots”. Keep in mind the following two things:
1. The DHM Research poll asked what people thought these things should be called and 55% said they are riots while 37% called them protests.
2. The other poll cited by Oregon Live (conducted by FM3 Research) had a sample size of 435 Portland voters, which isn’t a whole lot.
The way in which one asks the question is also important. I doubt FM3 Research called them “riots” when asking if they supported the protests, not to mention that one could assume what is meant by “do you support the protests” to be something like “do you support the message of the protesters” as opposed to the methods.
Another key aspect is that those voters might not be seeing much news about the riots or think that they are awfully infrequent, largely depending on where they live in Portland.
My larger point being that there is a perfectly logical explanation as to why two polls show such contrasting results regarding one particular problem.
To the people in the DHM Research survey, a majority of them view these things as riots. To those in the FM3 survey, they likely do not, or interpret support of the protests as supporting the message rather than the actions or methods of those involved.
But regardless of these irregularities in polling, the rest of the numbers show just how bad of a misstep the Left took in inciting, supporting and defending riots. A crazy concept, I know, but destruction, violence, discord and instability are not things most people support or believe there should be more of.
Even in deep-blue Portland, we see a far-Leftist mayor and governor deep underwater in terms of their response to this and they could pay politically, at least eventually. That’s not to say I expect Oregon to turn red, much like I don’t expect California to turn red or New York to do the same, but it’s clear that the Left is, indeed, pushing the middle to the right.
In this day and age, not supporting riots, violence, death and (unrelated but still relevant) child sexual exploitation is a right-wing concept rather than a bipartisan one.
The Left severely overplayed their hand following the death of George Floyd. I hope they pay dearly for it.

I have, for a long time, said that the biggest way in which the Left has managed to make relatively mainstream economic and political ideologies like socialism and communism (one and the same, really), is through the indoctrination of children in public schools.
Children are very malleable and the things that they learn early on are things that they carry with them the rest of their lives, even subconsciously. While not all children who are subjected to this indoctrination end up as little Marxist puppets later on, it does negatively influence a lot of people and that has major implications for the future of this country.
One of the pillars of power I have talked about in the past is education. The side which controls the education system controls the future of the country and the Democrats have controlled it for more than half a century now.
And things are only getting worse and worse in that respect, with freedom of speech being stamped out in college campuses by both staff and fellow students. Holding a conservative point of view in a college campus is bound to get one heavily reprimanded or perhaps even outright expelled.
Which is why it’s so important to have patriotic education in our schools which undo the heavy damage the Left has caused over the past few decades. Kids today are taught that America is a hellish landscape born out of racism and bigotry, created by slave owners for the benefit of slave owners, when nothing could be further from the truth.
Great men in history like George Washington, Christopher Columbus and Thomas Jefferson are marred as bloodthirsty bigots looking out only for themselves, when history shows that to not be the case at all.
The Left is straight up lying about the history of this country (it took me doing research on my own to discover that Columbus didn’t genocide Natives or that the first Thanksgiving was held by the pilgrims celebrating a successful harvest after having tried and failed with a socialistic system) so that people believe it is not worth defending against the idea of globalism or against the idea of fundamentally changing it.
After all, if you’ve been taught all your life that this country is fundamentally and systematically racist, then naturally, you would come to the conclusion that it should not exist or that it should be fundamentally changed. This is the ignorance that many carry with them because the modern school system is not designed to teach them the truth of our history (or other subjects, as even math is becoming politicized). However, there is good news on this front.
A recent Rasmussen poll showed that a majority of likely voters agreed with President Trump on the idea of instilling patriotic education into our schools.
According to the poll, 57% of likely voters agree with the following statement issued by Trump: “The only path to unity is to rebuild shared national identity focused on common American values and virtues of which we have plenty. This includes restoring patriotic education in our nation’s schools, where they are trying to change everything that we have learned.”
Only 30% disagree and 14% are undecided on this issue.
Unsurprisingly, this issue is largely a partisan one, as 78% of Republicans agree with Trump compared to just 43% of Democrats and 49% of unaffiliated voters.
This sort of split is completely unsurprising, though it is rather interesting that that many Democrats agree with this. I can only imagine those are the types of Democrats seeing where their party is headed and cannot bear to go along with it.
Furthermore, 53% of Republicans and 49% of unaffiliated voters (a plurality) think most school textbooks are more preoccupied with being politically correct as opposed to teaching accurate information. 51% of Democrats think the books are more focused on providing accurate information.
What’s more, 73% of all voters (different from likely voters) agreed with President Trump when he made the following statement in his Independence Day speech last year: “[T]ogether we are part of one of the greatest stories ever told – the story of America. It is the epic tale of a great nation whose people have risked everything for what they know is right.”
So clearly, the Left hasn’t completely won in the fight regarding education, which is as I thought. There are still plenty of people out there who are patriotic and who love this country, even if they are drowned out by those with megaphones who scream obscenities about this country and those who support it.
When professional athletes are paid tens of millions of dollars under this capitalistic system of ours kneel in a sign of defiance against the country that afforded them such lives of leisure, many will boo those actions because they are worthy of being booed.
This is not a nation that deserves such hatred and scorn. And no, I don’t buy it for a second that they aren’t protesting against the country as a whole. I don’t buy it that they are kneeling for the “injustices” of the current justice system. They kneel only during the national anthem. Not at any other point. They do it to disrespect the flag and the country.
It also doesn’t help them when they stand in solidarity with a sexual assaulter (Jacob Blake) or people who were defiant against the police, in some cases, to the point of trying to harm them. It doesn’t help when they support a Marxist organization which does not actually care about black lives.
But even the examples that I have shared here are examples of a system of indoctrination. These athletes have been told that this country is racist from an early age and they believe it. They keep hearing it over and over again and assume it must be true. They see particular situations through the lenses that have been given to them by the evil Left.
This is among the many reasons why we need patriotic education in our schools. We need to teach our kids the TRUTH about this country: that it’s not racist, it was not built by racists or for racists, and that it is the single best nation in the world and can be even better if there were no Leftist communists here to try and ruin it.
I’m glad that so many likely voters (the people that actually have some amount of influence in elections) are in agreement with Trump’s statement. I just wish that the number was considerably higher, but I suppose that would come once such patriotic education is actually implemented and the anti-patriotic education is completely stamped out.

This, sadly, is not the first time I have talked about Leftists trying to take this country back in time with repackaging of segregation as being a good thing for minorities. A little more than a year ago (and this feels like it was a lot farther back in time than it was), I talked about white (mostly female) students in Columbia University wanting to segregate whites from blacks, supposedly for the benefit of black people.
And going even farther back, roughly a month and a half after Trump’s inauguration, my associate wrote an article about black University of Michigan students wanting to self-segregate, demanding “safe spaces” to “fight ‘against oppression.’”
Funny enough, the University of Michigan is once again the subject of racism and segregation, though this time it’s in the Dearborn campus of the school and it comes from faculty rather than students.
At this campus, Leftists thought it would be a fantastic idea to host a whites only café, which they dubbed “non-POC café” probably because they realized that actually calling it “whites only” would have sent a worse message than this already does.
The university’s Center for Social Justice & Inclusion (so you already know how hilariously pathetic this entire thing is) invited whites to a virtual café where they would discuss what it’s like to be white and how to be a useful white person for non-white people, because if there is something non-white people love is white liberals coming in and virtue signal to the point where the white liberals expect something like this to happen:
More specifically, the invite reads: “Feel free to drop in and discuss your experiences as non-persons of color and hopefully brainstorm solutions to common issues within the non-POC community. The café will be held bi-monthly, generally to occur on the 1st Tuesday of every month at 2:00pm and the 3rd Wednesday of every month at 7:00pm. Dates and times are subject to change depending on feedback and demand.”
Suffice it to say that they absolutely got railed online, as they deserve, because they are literally hosting a segregated, whites only café where minorities are not allowed. Now, the university did apologize for this, saying the event was “not reflective of the university’s commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion.” The university has also made it so you can’t access either their “non-POC only” café or their “BIPOC only” café (Black and Indigenous Person of Color, and yes, this is still extremely stupid Leftist virtue signaling).
Speaking of which, I think they figured having a whites only café would have been a bit too outrageous if they didn’t also offered a coloreds café, because the mind of a liberal works in reverse.
Still, despite them walking this back, it is clear what the intent here is: return to segregation. The only difference between what it used to be and what the Left wants it to be now is that minorities aren’t the ones getting the crappy stuff.
Back when segregation was a thing, white people had nice water fountains, nice public restrooms, etc. and colored people had comparably worse water fountains and public restrooms. Now, the Left is trying to repackage segregation as a good thing for minorities because minorities wouldn’t be the ones getting the short end of the stick when it came to public utilities.
Is this the lesson the Left got from the Civil Rights movement? Do they think that if the water fountains and restrooms had been a bit more up to standard, that would have made black people fine with segregation?
The Left’s racism knows no bounds.
But even still, there is no doubt what the play here is: trying to divide Americans.
“Wow, Freddie, I couldn’t figure that one out on my own, durr.” I know, that was an obvious thing to say, but listen to me. Remember how I said that my associate wrote an article about black students in the University of Michigan wanting to self-segregate? This is the effect the Left wants to achieve nationally. They want black and white people to be so divided and separated (what do you think all of the attacks on white people are about?) that black people will see it as beneficial to segregate themselves from whites.
The aim of the Left is to have Americans so divided that they become easier to control. Division, deception and destruction are the Left’s most oft-used tools and pretty much the only ones they know how to use.
They can tear things down but not build things up. They can destroy buildings and statues, but not build them back up. They want power and will get it however they need. I wouldn’t be surprised if at one point or another, they began to argue for white slavery.
I know that that seems like a far-fetched idea, but considering we have Leftists openly heaping praise at a pedophilic movie, depraved things like the dissolution of the 13th amendment for the purposes of getting revenge on white people (who had nothing to do with the slavery of centuries past) are not things I would put past them to be willing to push for.
Already, we are seeing far-Left lunatic black people giving seminars and Ted Talks about how literally all white people are racist. It’s a nonsensical argument, but they are still trying to make it. Not to mention many are pushing for reparations, and the looting of stores has been excused by BLM leaders as a type of reparations (and BLM protestors have gone into residential neighborhoods demanding the white people give their homes to black people). The idea of white slavery, if it is ever pushed, would be pushed as part of “reparations”, which is really nothing more than a thinly-veiled attempt at revenge rather than justice.
Not to mention that if black people really wanted reparations, they should go after the DNC, which has been the number one enemy of black people and continues to be so.
But returning to the University of Michigan, I can’t say I’m surprised that a university is so fraught with blatant racism like this. And I know that they “meant well”, at least that’s what they will argue, but no one can tell me that racial segregation is anything short of racism, regardless of the supposed reasoning behind it.
If white people want to segregate themselves from black people because they don’t like black people, that’s wrong and racist. If white people want to segregate themselves from black people because they don’t want to “burden” black people (or something dumb like that) with their presence, that’s wrong and racist. If black people want to segregate themselves from white people because they believe they are inferior, that’s wrong and racist. If black people want to segregate themselves from white people because they don’t like white people, that’s wrong and racist.
SEGREGATION IS RACIST! That I have to say this is ludicrous, but here we are, thanks to the hateful and racist Left.

Before the rabid, cultish Left begins accusing me of “denying science” or claiming that I know more than scientists and experts (which, all things considered, I might, in some areas), allow me to explain the context behind this kind of story and roughly why it is that I believe I can explain what scientists can’t.
Furthermore, I believe a lot of objective, rational people could explain what scientists can’t in this instance.
But before I get to that, like I said, let me give you the context.
A recent New York Post article is titled: “Scientists can’t explain puzzling lack of coronavirus outbreaks in Africa.”
“The novel coronavirus has infected more than 26.35 million people, with just four countries accounting for over 15 million cases… Some [scientists] expected the African continent to be affected most heavily by the virus, but that wasn’t the case. South Africa stands out when it comes to the number of total cases, with nearly 631,000 infections. But fewer than 15,000 people have died of COVID-19. These figures are puzzling scientists looking to understand how the virus behaves and how it can be beaten.”
Before I bring in my own two cents about why this is happening, let me tell you what the scientists theorize could be the case.
Despite the fact that Africa is a very poor and densely-populated continent, two factors which were expected to lead to a disaster in the continent, the most infected country, South Africa, has a death rate seven times lower than the U.K.
Trying to figure out this phenomenon, the NY Post says that “one hypothesis that can explain the disparity between Africa and other continents concerns the overall age of the population. In general, the population of Africa is younger than in regions hardest-hit by COVID-19.”
This hypothesis is fairly sound, all things considered. Africa is pretty underdeveloped and the life expectancy in all of Africa is 63.24 years. For comparison, life expectancy in the U.S. is 78.93 years. It also makes sense because the virus hits hardest for those who are older, as the death rate jumps from 6.5% for those between the ages of 65-74 to 14.3% for those 75 and older. If the average life expectancy is even less than 65 in Africa, there is good reason to assume lower age is a factor here.
Of course, that is just a hypothesis, so it is not outright proven nor are scientists fully confident that that would be the entire reason (which is why they acknowledge their being puzzled by this).
Another hypothesis is that “other human coronaviruses that cause common colds can elicit an immune response that could provide protection against COVID-19. South African researchers went to work on that idea, attempting to analyze five-year-old blood samples that were conserved from a flu vaccine trial in Soweto. The plan was to look for any evidence that would explain why the African continent is faring much better against the illness than others. Those samples were compromised by technical issues that put a stop to the research.”
“But the idea still stands. The same crowded neighborhoods that would lead to the quick spread of other coronaviruses may have protected the population from SARS-CoV-2.”
So basically, the idea is that some other strains of the coronavirus, particularly the ones that cause common colds, could have provided some protection for people in Africa. The only issue here is that Africa isn’t the only continent in the world where people get the common cold. Just about everyone everywhere could get it, even if not necessarily to the same degree.
Here in the States, for example, when it’s flu season, people tend to get a flu shot (which is very strange that one supposedly needs to get one every year, since vaccines are supposed to work for far longer). Such shots are easy to get, which is not necessarily the case in less developed nations.
However, tens of thousands of people die every year from the flu in the U.S. and obviously, far more people get it. And yet, the U.S. is the global leader in terms of cases and deaths to COVID-19 (at least according to official estimates, which as I have already mentioned time and time again, are not really trustworthy, particularly as seemingly only 6% of these deaths are actually to the virus).
What I’m getting at is that I don’t know if this hypothesis is all that good, though there is merit to the idea of immunity from getting the virus in the first place.
At any rate, those are a couple of the hypotheses that scientists have regarding this phenomenon, at least according to the New York Post.
However, I have a little theory of my own regarding this. Before I say it, however, keep in mind that I am not a doctor, a scientist or in any way an expert on this issue. I bring this theory up simply because it makes a good deal of logical sense, particularly knowing other stories that suggest the same.
My theory is that the numbers are particularly low in Africa because of malaria, or more specifically, the drug used to treat malaria: Hydroxychloroquine.
According to the World Health Organization (let’s spare our thoughts about this garbage organization for the time being), in 2018, there were an estimated 405,000 deaths from malaria worldwide, with Africa accounting for 94% of those deaths.
Simply put, Africa is a hotbed for malaria and Hydroxychloroquine has been used to both prevent and treat it since 1944.
Given its frequent use to prevent and treat malaria, and given that the drug has been used to treat the Chinese coronavirus in other places with good results (even leading some Democrats who got the virus and were cured by the drug to go so far as to THANK Trump for his promotion of the drug), it’s perfectly logical to assume that people in Africa were given the drug and have seen great numbers as a result.
While South Africa is the standout example given the number of cases but relatively low number of deaths, it still ranks at number 8 most infected in the world, according to worldometers. The next highest African country on that list is Egypt at number 31, with a little over 100,000 cases, but fewer than 6,000 deaths. After that comes Morocco at number 43, with over 75,000 cases but fewer than 2,000 deaths. After that comes Ethiopia at number 49, with over 60,000 cases but fewer than a thousand deaths.
While it was expected that the poor, dense populations of African nations would cause a massive disaster for the continent, reality has been the exact opposite so far: Africa is doing better than all other continents.
And while it could come down to the relatively lower average age and possible immunization from other similar viruses, there is no doubt that HCQ has at least somewhat of a hand to play here. It is widely used in that continent to prevent and treat malaria, as I just explained, and it has shown that it can also treat the Chinese coronavirus both in anecdotal stories and in some actual scientific studies, much as people like Fauci (who has a financial interest in not promoting that drug) might argue against it.
A big reason I suggest that this is a possibility is because the other scientists in the NY Post article seemingly didn’t even think to bring it up, despite the fact that the drug has been widely used for other purposes as well for nearly 80 years in that continent. It’s like the scientists didn’t even bother to try and connect the dots on this.
Now, am I saying that the drug is definitely the number 1 reason for these incredible numbers in Africa? No, and I cannot say that because I’m neither a scientist nor have I run a research study to find whether that is the case or not. However, there is no denying the, at the very least, massive coincidence that Africa is seeing great numbers in fighting the virus and it also has been using HCQ for decades in its population for fighting malaria.
I’m not saying that HCQ is definitely the reason for these numbers but I also cannot disregard the drug as having some impact here, especially knowing that it has worked in other places for other people.
I just wish that this whole thing weren’t so politicized (by the Left) that a plausible treatment that could save lives is largely disregarded just because a prominent politician hated by the Left and the media is the one who promoted it. Trust me, if, say, Bill Gates or Obama had brought up the idea that HCQ could help treat the virus, the media would have promoted the drug as if it had been sent by God Himself and they would have praised whomever brought it up as not only a genius but possibly as a savior of humanity.
But just because it was Trump that brought it up, it has to be avoided as though the drug itself were the CAUSE of the disease. The Left will literally let people die just out of disdain for Trump and to keep him from getting some sort of victory, political or not.
Again, I cannot possibly claim that the drug is definitely what is leading to the numbers Africa is seeing because I’m not a scientist, but it is ludicrous that some actual scientists are putting politics or money before lives and disregarding a drug which has clearly been at least fairly effective in dealing with this virus JUST because of who brought up its possible use (and again, people forget that Grandma-killer Cuomo also promoted the drug before the virus became a political war).
I hope that more and more scientists begin exploring the possibility of using this drug more frequently, because if they cared at all about people, this is what they would do: explore all possibilities for helping people and not disregarding such possibilities just because a politician Leftists don’t like is the one who brought it up.

Considering how deep-blue San Francisco is, I am not even a little bit surprised to find that the people who run that city are massive hypocrites. As it turns out, even as local and state politicians have argued and mandated that public gyms (as in regular people, as opposed to the politicians, use them) as well as other “non-essential” businesses must be closed, that seemingly did not apply to the amenities that affect the ruling class, only the peasant class.
According to The Washington Examiner, “Gyms within government buildings in San Francisco have been open for months, despite privately owned establishments being ordered to close due to the coronavirus.”
So, in San Francisco alone, we have a salon who had been ordered to be closed for months and was hemorrhaging money only to be told to reopen for one person in particular, that being her highness Nancy Pelosi (who hilariously tried to blame the salon owner, showing just how insufferable she is), and now, we come to find that gyms for government workers have been open this entire time, even despite the warnings those very people were giving public gyms about how “unsafe” it was for people to work out in indoor gyms.
What a sick joke it is to live in Commiefornia. Understandably, one gym owner told a local NBC News station: “It’s shocking, it’s infuriating. Even though they’re getting exposed, there are no repercussions, no ramifications? It’s shocking.”
Well, of course there are no repercussions and ramifications even while they are being exposed. YOU ARE DEALING WITH DEMOCRATS! Hypocrisy doesn’t stick to them. They do not get punished for blatant corruption.
For crying out loud, the current Democrat nominee has deep business ties with CHINA AND UKRAINE! He is essentially a puppet for Xi Jinping, but the media will never bring it up and they would even pretend that it doesn’t matter at all and play it off as a non-issue.
Sen. Diane Feinstein was caught employing a Chinese national for DECADES and literally NOTHING came of it, other than the Chinese national getting fired. No repercussions for Feinstein or anything. She was exposing national-security secrets and NOTHING came of it. Not to mention she was part of that whole pre-COVID stock market fraud, but the media focused largely on Sen. Loeffler.
The last Democrat nominee literally had a foundation that would take money from the Saudis and the Chinese (and whomever else, really) in exchange for “favors”. What do you think “pay-for-play” was all about?
Hypocrisy is a charge that does not stick to the Democrats because the media sides with the Democrats. The only standards the Left has are double standards, where we, the peasants, are supposed to listen and obey them even as they do something entirely contrary to what they tell us.
People are not allowed to go to salons, but Nancy Pelosi can (funny enough, in order to save some amount of face, the city began to ease on restrictions for salon owners following Pelosi being exposed). People are not allowed to go to the gym, but government workers can.
According to the Washington Examiner, the “gyms that have been open for government employees include those for police officers, judges, lawyers, bailiffs, and paralegals, according to the report. One such gym, the Hall of Justice gym, has been open since July 1.”
Now, I can understand gyms for police officers being open. Police precincts usually have gyms within them and it makes sense that out of everyone, they should still be allowed to work out in gyms (especially given the current social climate). They have to uphold the law and do many of the same tasks they usually do outside of a pandemic, so it makes sense for their gyms to still be open.
But what is a judge going to do with an open gym? Why does his or her gym get to be open for them? What need do government lawyers have to continue working out?
It makes sense for cops’ gyms to be open, given their line of work, but judges don’t go out hitting criminals with their gavel. Lawyers don’t go out hitting criminals with a case. Bailiffs, I suppose, could make sense given that they are supposed to maintain safety in the courtroom and they need to be physically fit to do so. But the others, apart from cops, don’t need their gyms to remain open, particularly as the rest of us plebs (I don’t live in San Francisco, but I doubt this double standard is exclusive to this city) are told we cannot go certain places or do certain activities.
Another gym owner put it how I just described it: “It just demonstrates that there seems to be some kind of a double standard between what city employees are allowed to do and what the residents of San Francisco are allowed to do.”
Yep, you, the peasant, have to obey and eat bread, if you can get some, while the ruling class gets to do basically whatever they want (see: Nancy Pelosi, again) and get to eat cake (and then burn all those calories in government gyms).
“But Freddie, COVID can spread quickly if all gyms are open,” the ignoramus will argue. Okay, what sense does it make to claim that public gyms are dangerous but government gyms are not? If the argument is that the virus can spread quickly in an indoor area with plenty of people, who are naturally not going to be wearing masks as to avoid getting a lack of oxygen, then why is a public gym at all different from a gym in a government building?
Not that I expect the liberal ignoramus to be able to answer, let alone honestly. The Left will actually argue that, even as people are not allowed to go to the beach, people are allowed to protest and riot for a Leftist political cause. No masks or social distancing or other health and safety guidelines are required at such protests, but other people not participating must still abide by those rules.
You can’t go to church to pray but you can to set it on fire. You can’t go to a park with your family but you can with your communist revolutionary friends to tear down statues and deface public property.
These double standards are BLATANT and the Left does not get punished for it, apart perhaps from the polls. And even then, the polls didn’t show that they were suffering until the media began to cover and justify obvious criminal acts of destruction as being “mostly peaceful”, all with even a garbage study that says that 93% of the protests were peaceful, while ignoring that that means that there were nearly 600 RIOTS IN 220 LOCATIONS because there were THOUSANDS of protests all across the country in the last three months.
The Left is filled with hypocrites but that hardly seems to matter to some people or event to many. I hope that, given this, things will begin to change a little.
I cannot imagine that the local business owners in places like San Francisco, which have suffered some of the strictest lockdown measures in the country (alongside other deep-blue cities and states), will be too keen on continuing to vote for the Democrats that ruin their businesses and live like royalty, borderline literally.
Do I expect California to turn red this year? Not really. But I do expect some people to recognize just how the Left has been running things and see the results of such governance. San Francisco was literally a “s**thole” before this pandemic began, let alone during it. If there is any hope of cities getting out of the craphole that they are in and return to prosperity, they have to stop voting for those who blatantly hate them and enact policies that are meant to hurt them in every way possible.
The Left must be defeated at all costs and everywhere possible.

Back in April, I talked about a story that indicated Osama bin Laden was confident that, if he and al-Qaeda were to be successful in assassinating Obama and making Biden the POTUS, the United States would go into a crisis because, according to the now-dead terrorist, Biden is ‘totally unprepared’ to be the president.
Well, now, we seem to have a relatively similar story. The New York Post has a recent story out regarding one interesting person’s thoughts surrounding the November election and the effects of the results.
Noor bin Ladin (whose side of the family has always spelled their last name differently from the terrorist), the niece of Osama bin Laden, warned that another 9/11-type attack could occur if Joe Biden becomes president.
Bin Ladin said: “ISIS proliferated under the Obama/Biden administration, leading them to coming to Europe. Trump has shown that he protects America and us by extension from foreign threats by obliterating terrorists at the root and before they get a chance to strike.”
Yes, as you can tell, Noor is not exactly on the side of radical Islamic terrorism. Matter of fact, it’s just the opposite. While she seemingly does not follow any particular religion, she is very right-wing conservative, a supporter of President Trump (as you can see her above wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat) and a fan of Fox News’ Tucker Carlson.
The NY Post reports that bin Ladin, though she lives in Switzerland, considers herself “an American at heart”, had a “full-size US flag hung in her childhood room at age 12 and her dream vacation is an RV trip across America.”
She also has conservative views regarding things like Spygate, big tech censorship of conservatives, mask mandates, the historically inaccurate garbage that is the NYT’s 1619 Project and Cuomo’s fatal executive order sending sick people to nursing and retirement homes.
So it’s pretty safe to say that she is a massive supporter of President Trump and while she lives in Switzerland, is extremely patriotic for the United States. It’s pretty sad that the niece of the most hated and notorious terrorist of all time is considerably far more patriotic than most people in D.C.
At any rate, bin Ladin also said to the NY Post: “I have been a supporter of President Trump’s since he announced he was running in the early days in 2015. I have watched from afar and I admire this man’s resolve. He must be re-elected… It’s vital for the future of not only America, but Western civilization as a whole.”
She continued: “You look at all the terrorist attacks that have happened in Europe over the past 19 years. They have completely shaken us to the core… [Radical Islam] has completely infiltrated our society. In the US it’s very worrying that the left has aligned itself completely with the people who share that ideology.”
Indeed, it is very worrying that the Left aligns itself with radical Islamic terrorists, but it’s not exactly surprising. Both share the same goal of destroying the U.S., even if by different means (though considering the past few months of social and civil unrest and violence, those means are becoming more and more similar).
Regarding radical Islamic terrorism as a whole, that is something that is often ignored or forgotten about the Trump administration. ISIS is functionally inoperative in the U.S. The last time we had a relatively major terrorist attack (in which more than 4 people died) on U.S soil was back in 2017, in that Halloween day attack by a radical Islamic terrorist who stole a U-Haul truck and ran people over in New York City. Eight people died in that attack. Since then, the deadliest attack we have had (at the hands of Islamic terrorists, not domestic ones) was in late 2019 when a Saudi national shot and killed three people and injured 8 others at a naval air station, according to thereligionofpeace.com
According to the site, only 18 people total have died in a radical Islamic terrorist attack on U.S. soil since Trump became president. Compare that to the 116 people who died in a radical Islamic terrorist attack on U.S. soil during Obama’s tenure and the difference is clear.
“But Freddie, you’re comparing four years of Trump to Obama’s eight years. How is that fair?” Very well. Let’s look at Obama’s first four years in office. Looking at the data on the website from February of 2009 to January 15th, 2012, roughly the first four years of Obama’s first term, we find that 29 people died in a terrorist attack in that time span. This is particularly impressive (not the good kind, obviously) and horrendous because it means that in Obama’s second four years, 87 people were killed in U.S. soil to a radical Islamic terrorist attack.
So which four years would we rather look at, the one where 29 people died or the one were 87 people died? Either way, that is still more than what Trump has seen so far in his own three and a half years (granted, that still could change, but he’s been kicking major terrorist butt this entire time, so ISIS knows not to mess with him, which is the biggest reason Noor is saying what she’s saying).
Trump has practically destroyed ISIS and is a major threat to any and all radical Islamic terrorists. Noor knows this and understands that a Biden victory would mean going back to rampant terrorism in the U.S., likely seeing numbers closer to Obama’s last four years than his first four.
While there is plenty more I could say about Noor and her views, particularly with things such as her criticism of The Squad and Ilhan Omar specifically, I believe the point of this article has been made. A Biden presidency would be utterly disastrous for this country in every possible sense.
The economy would be in shambles, our rights and freedoms would be eroded, our safety compromised by domestic and foreign terrorists and particularly the safety of Trump supporters and all conservatives (which, at this point, basically means everyone who even slightly disagrees with the Leftist hive mind) would be in jeopardy.
Radical Leftists are already calling for our heads, basically, and have made numerous threats against Trump, his supporters and other conservatives (not to mention Rand Paul has already been attacked and Congressional Republicans were shot up in a baseball game by a Bernie supporter whom none on the Left denounced). Could you imagine the state of this country if these demons were in power?
We already see some of it which is why it’s so important to defeat them in every place we can. This means, of course, politically, but also socially and other pillars of power. We must take back our country from these monsters and that means defeating them intellectually, morally and spiritually.
Morality has been eroding in this country for a long time due to secularism. We see, today, people supporting the idea of letting children “change their gender” and undergo life-altering chemical “treatment”. We see people defending the genocide that is abortion. We see people beginning to defend the idea of political violence as a means to an end for the sake of communism. Heck, communism in itself is highly immoral due to what it brings, even if it is advertised as this great thing that everyone can benefit from (except, of course, for its political enemies including opponents, landlords, etc.).
Beating these ideas back and bringing about a Christian revival (which is not something we alone can do, of course, as it depends entirely on God to allow it) are the way in which we can defeat the Left and its horrible, Satanic ideas.
This, of course, means beating them politically and means soundly defeating Joe Biden, who I hope suffers the greatest political defeat in the history of mankind.
Returning to Noor, however, it is interesting that she has turned out to be a great patriot, even if not actually American, and a supporter of the president. Her story is interesting and the NY Post itself writes a good deal about it and goes on to explain what she went through following the 9/11 attacks perpetrated by her uncle.
I wish her well and, returning again to Biden, like I said, I hope he loses badly.

If you were to ask a Leftist which country he or she believes is the most oppressive, regressive and tyrannical nation in the world, 9 times out of 10, they will say it’s the U.S. and the tenth time will be a non-answer because they are groggy from nap time. However, we all know very well that the U.S., while not perfect, is still FAR from the dictatorial and oppressive nation that the Left claims it is.
You don’t have to look very far to recognize this – the fact that the Left can attack Donald Trump without fear of imprisonment is enough evidence. However, let’s ignore such facts for now and focus on an actually dictatorial and oppressive regime which, unsurprisingly, the Left is all buddy-buddy with: the Islamic “Republic” of Iran.
According to the Jerusalem Post, the Iranian Supreme Court “confirmed the death sentence of national wrestling champion Navid Afkari for his 2018 protest against the regime in Tehran. The news website Iran International reported on Saturday that Iran’s clerical regime imposed two death sentences, six years and six months in prison, and 74 lashes on Afkari. His brother, Vahid Afkari, received a prison sentence of 54 years and six months in prison and 74 lashes. The third brother, Habib, was slapped with a prison term of 27 years and three months and 74 lashes.”
A national wrestling champion is being executed and his two brothers are being given lengthy prison sentences for the “high crime” of protesting the regime in Tehran two years ago.
This would just about be the equivalent to LeBron James being arrested, tried and sentenced to TWO death sentences (which really goes to show just how ridiculous the “justice” system works in that third-world craphole) for the “crime” of having protested against Donald Trump’s administration.
It would be very hard to imagine such a situation happening here, let alone the absolute outrage that would come as a result of such an injustice. And yet, this is what’s happening in Iran and somehow, someway, the Left is still convinced that America is anywhere close to that level of oppression.
Let me tell you what oppression is. Oppression is Facebook deleting posts that support Kyle Rittenhouse. Oppression is Twitter “accidentally” banning people who defend Rittenhouse, including the kid’s LAWYERS. Oppression is the fake news media attacking a teenager, lambasting him and smearing him, maliciously changing his life forever JUST because he is a political opponent. Oppression is being sentenced TO DEATH for protesting the government.
Notice that each instance of oppression I talked about that exists in this country is NOT coming from the federal government itself, but rather, from Left-wing businesses and organizations. This is because Leftism is oppression itself. This doesn’t mean that the government itself hasn’t been oppressive to some extent. Dinesh D’Souza, for example, was given five years probation and 8 months in prison for campaign finance violations (giving more than $20,000 to a GOP candidate in her race) back during the Obama administration. Yet, the Clintons are allowed to receive millions from foreign agents with total impunity JUST because they technically did not donate to her campaign directly, but rather, to the highly corrupt Clinton Foundation.
So the government definitely is capable of being rather oppressive, but to allege that it is on par with some of the most oppressive and tyrannical dictatorships to have ever existed is utter madness.
Leftists will claim that particular sets of people are “oppressed” because in many instances, they see a white cop JUSTIFIABLY shooting at a suspect who happens to be black. Despite the fact that there is NO defense of Jacob Blake, the Left will defend him to no end. Despite the fact that Rayshard Brooks was justifiably killed, the Left has insisted that “yet another white cop hunted down and executed a black man”.
They have convinced a lot of black people that they are practically hunted down by police just because of their skin color. They have convinced a lot of people in general that police are the bad guys and that defunding them completely will bring about a utopia where nothing bad ever happens and unicorns fart rainbows. They haven’t convinced a majority, thank God, but have convinced far more people than they should have been able to.
There is no rhyme or reason to believe ANYTHING that the Left says about any given topic, be it climate change, abortion, homosexuality and transgenderism, race relations, etc. And yet, many do, not because it is a logical attachment, but because it is an emotional one.
We can PLAINLY see that America is nowhere close to the level of oppression that regimes like Iran, North Korea, China, etc. are, and yet, many are convinced that they are all practically the same (and some will even argue that those countries are better, again, indicating that this is not an intelligent or logical attachment).
Returning to the situation with Iran, another aspect of it is that, allegedly, two of the Afkari brothers were tortured into giving confessions. The reason this is highly credible is because it comes from Iran International itself, and considering how “journalism” usually works in these dictatorships, I wouldn’t be surprised if this is a government-run website.
Iran International reported: “Navid and Vahid Afkari were severely tortured to give confessions, and the testimony of witnesses about their beatings and torture are even referenced in the case, but the court has ignored it.”
Now, one could ask: “Why would an Iran-owned website admit this?” To which I say: do you really think Iran cares how it is viewed by someone who gives enough of a damn to read through their news sites?
They are openly hostile to their own people when they protest against the regime (as evidenced by this very case). Remember when a bunch of women were protesting against wearing the hijab? Yeah, the regime would routinely make arrests and even open fire on demonstrators.
Compare that to what we are seeing in Democrat-run cities across the country today. We have rioters being DEFENDED by the fake news media (when the polls don’t show people being opposed to riots, at least) and many on the Left pretending that everything is fine and there is nothing to see. That some peaceful part of Portland is “obviously” an indication that there is nothing wrong anywhere else in the city, an argument which is the equivalent of December 7th, 1941 being rather peaceful because not ALL of Pearl Harbor was attacked.
Rioters assault cops and destroy property, both private and public, with much impunity because the fake news media (which, as the days go by, more and more, they prove that they EARNED the moniker of “enemy of the people”) runs cover for them by saying they are “peaceful protesters” or by sticking their heads in the sand and ignoring all the violence that proves they are b.s.-ing everybody. And while arrests are made, the Leftist DA’s of the various cities release the rioters without bail so the destruction and chaos may continue largely unimpeded.
Compare and contrast the two situations in Iran and the U.S. In America, rioters get to destroy buildings, assault people and cops, and get released a few hours after their arrest. In Iran, a guy gets two death sentences for having actually peacefully protested the dictatorial regime, and his two brothers also get lengthy prison sentences. Oh, and reportedly, all of this comes after having been tortured into confessing to the “crimes” levied against them.
According to the Jerusalem Post, “Iran’s judiciary charged the brothers with 20 different crimes including ‘attending illegal gatherings, assembly and conspiracy to commit crimes against national security, and insulting the supreme leader.’”
Meanwhile, in America, that first charge is levied not against the rioters but against people who attend funerals. Not against those who illegally gather during a pandemic to “protest” and cause chaos, but against those who want to visit family next door (which also goes to show the government’s ability to be oppressive, particularly when it is a Leftist government that is in charge).
Anyone still wanna tell me that America is at all on the same level of oppression as the Iranian regime is? Just look at that last charge of “insulting the supreme leader” to find that the two nations are entirely incomparable. If it were a crime to “insult the President of the United States”, every single person working in the fake news media, every single Washington establishment politician and roughly half the country would be in prison.
The American Left doesn’t know real oppression, but they are all too excited to try and oppress the rest of us.
“Woe to those who decree iniquitous decrees, and the writers who keep writing oppression, to turn aside the needy from justice and to rob the poor of my people of their right, that widows may be their spoil, and that they may make the fatherless their prey!”

I have said on multiple occasions in recent articles that one of the Left’s biggest insistences is that we lock everything down once again due to a “fear” of rising Chinese coronavirus cases. Obviously, that is just a ploy to try and destroy the economy once again and blame it all on Trump to try and make sure their sock-puppet of a candidate wins the election. However, it is still an insistence and they are pretty adamant about keeping businesses and everything else closed “for safety reasons.”
A load of crap, considering that Democrats, including Nancy Pelosi, have frequently either gone out of their states to do things like stay in a hotel or dine out, or have ordered a small business which has been closed since March to open just to service them. This is what Nancy Pelosi recently did with a hair salon in San Francisco.
According to Fox News: “House Speaker Nancy Pelosi visited a San Francisco hair salon on Monday afternoon for a wash and blow-out, despite local ordinances keeping salons closed amid the coronavirus pandemic, Fox News has learned.”
In security footage (below) from the salon, Nancy Pelosi can be seen walking into the San Francisco salon with wet hair and without a face mask to cover her mouth or nose.
All of this, suffice to say, makes her a complete hypocrite (not that this is any surprise to us). She herself had ordered, back in late July, that face masks were required in the House chamber, and the state of California, as well as the coastal, far-Left cities, have imposed some of the strictest lockdown measures in the country.
And like I said earlier, this salon had been ordered closed since March. The salon owner is a single mother of two and her business is her only source of income (or, rather, it WAS her only source of income).
Fox News reports that “[s]alons in San Francisco had been closed since March and were only notified they could reopen on Sept. 1 for outdoor hairstyling services only.”
“You see, she did nothing wrong! The salon was allowed to open somewhat on September 1st, so what’s the issue, Nazi?” the ignoramus will argue. Plenty is wrong here.
First of all, she went in on Monday, August 31st, the day BEFORE the salons were allowed to partially reopen, or at least perform services outside.
Second of all, the service was not done outside, but inside. And like Fox News mentioned, she didn’t have a face mask with her.
Now, I’m of the belief that face masks are largely unnecessary, especially with few people in any given place (and the hairstylist that blew Pelosi’s hair was wearing a mask himself). However, Leftists are of the belief that face masks must be required if you are outside, inside, walking, driving, meeting your friends and family, chatting over Zoom, going to the bathroom, taking a shower, getting surgery, going into labor, getting a tan, mowing the lawn, going scuba diving, assaulting police officers, setting churches on fire, shooting people and sleeping.
Again, it’s not surprising to see Pelosi being a massive hypocrite, but considering all of the restrictions that the Left is IMPOSING on us and on small businesses, in the words of the very salon owner she told to service her, it’s a “slap in the face.”
You and I aren’t allowed to go to a hair salon (well, I don’t frequent one anyway for a number of reasons apart from the fact that I am a straight man), but her Majesty the Queen, Nancy Pelosi Antoinette, is well within her rights and liberties to go there. Even as that hair salon is struggling (and no, that particular salon can’t do services outside because they specialize in hair coloring and they can’t legally use chemicals outside), even as the single mother of two has been worried sick for the past roughly half a year wondering how she is going to feed herself and her family, Nancy Antoinette is indifferent to her struggle and demands she be catered to, local guidelines and restrictions be damned.
I believe the salon owner said it best: “We’re supposed to look up to this woman, right? It is just disturbing.”
Now, I don’t look up to any politician. I have particular hopes for certain politicians, such as Trump, Pence, Ted Cruz, Josh Hawley and other conservatives, but I don’t particularly look up to any of them, wishing I could be them or waiting for them to be my personal savior. This is because politicians are not God, and often times, are extremely stupid and hypocritical (case in point the very she-devil prominently featured in this article).
But it is true that they are meant to be held to a sort of relatively higher standard. If it is okay for them to do something, it is only right that it be okay for us to do something. If it is okay for Pelosi to go to a hair salon (without a mask the Left is always screaming at people to wear), it is only right that others be allowed to go to a hair salon for whatever they need to get done.
It is unjust that politicians be allowed to do these things while we the peasants are told we cannot “for safety reasons.” If it’s for “safety reasons”, then doesn’t Pelosi care about her health? She is the third-most powerful politician in the country, as she is third-in-line to the presidency were anything to happen to the POTUS and VP. She is the House Speaker. Most importantly, she’s EIGHTY-YEARS-OLD, or in other words, she is in the most-vulnerable age group for the Chinese coronavirus.
Now, she certainly has the money to be treated and has a higher chance of surviving it than most others around her age due to that fact alone, but it’s no guarantee that whatever treatment she were to undergo would be successful.
Either she cares more about her hair than her health, or she knows just how bogus these lockdown measures are and how overblown the virus has been (though, again, she is in the age group that is most vulnerable, so even as I believe the virus has been blown way out of proportion, someone her age should take care of herself better than this).
Anyway, my point is that it is unjust that Nancy Pelosi, a woman in a high-risk group, would be allowed to get service in a salon, but others, including people far younger and healthier than her, are not allowed. It is unjust that, just because she’s a prominent politician (particularly one with a “D” next to her name), she gets more rights than the regular person when it comes to these lockdowns.
That salon has been hemorrhaging money since March and the business owner has put into place measures that go along with health guidelines (making sure chairs are six feet apart, putting plexiglass partitions between the sinks and chairs, proper air flow with open windows, etc.) and yet, she has not been allowed to reopen except to service one person in particular; someone who feels she is above everyone else and her needs and desires are more important than that of the regular peasant.
It doesn’t help either that San Francisco is almost literally a “s**thole”, what with homeless people defecating everywhere and with all of the violence going on. The salon owner explained to Fox News that she has “lost 60 percent of my clientele because everyone is fleeing the city.”
She also said that the area where her salon is located has basically become “a third world country,” saying that “every other storefront is completely vacant and shut down and boarded up.”
“And because of the shutdown, and the store closures, we’ve lost people, my clients, and my employees, and that is due to the politics in San Francisco.”
Bingo! THAT is the number one issue with much of this. The ONLY reason any stores are still shut down is purely because of politics. The Democrats are only trying to hurt Trump’s chances at reelection and one of his biggest strengths has always been the economy. Democrat states and cities being shut down means the national economy is negatively affected, which the Left and the fake news media will blame on Trump (and don’t think they haven’t tried their best at this. For crying out loud, they’re trying to blame THE RIOTS THAT THEY HAVE ENCOURAGED, SUPPORTED AND COVERED FOR on Trump and his supporters!).
I can guarantee that if, God forbid, Joe Biden wins, all lockdowns would end THE DAY AFTER THE ELECTION. Not because it would magically and suddenly be safe, but because it has been safe to reopen for a long time now (never was it a good idea to close down anyway) and everyone knows it.
The ONLY reason this business owner, and all other business owners, are suffering is because of the local and state politics of insanity and vengeance.
While I doubt the entire state of California would ever go red again, I wouldn’t be surprised if enough people recognized how awful the Left is at governing and some counties kick them the hell out of there.
While I haven’t been paying attention to American politics for as long as plenty of other people, I can safely say that I don’t think I have ever seen a party less qualified to run things and more deserving of losing absolutely everything.
I hope the 2020 election will be such a massive Trump and right-wing landslide that it makes 1984 look like 2000, if possible.
