Time and time again, we are told that we must support the Black Lives Matter movement because if we don’t, then that obviously means that we are racist and don’t believe that black lives actually matter. But do black lives matter to the Black Lives Matter movement? The short answer is: no. No, they don’t.
On the night of our Independence Day celebrations, while plenty of Americans who love this country were celebrating the birth of our nation (and plenty of communists were busy living in constant vitriol, not that that’s anything new for them), a pair of parents lost their most significant treasure: their 8-year-old daughter, Secoriea Turner.
You see, over Independence Day weekend, a shooting occurred near the parking lot of the Atlanta, Georgia Wendy’s where Rayshard Brooks was (justifiably) killed by a police officer, perpetrated by “demonstrators” who were occupying the now-burned-down Wendy’s (CHAZ-style, sort of). The Turner family made the tragic mistake of pulling into the Wendy’s parking lot, seemingly a transgression warranting their car being shot up and their daughter being killed by armed terrorists.
The Black Lives Matter movement does not actually care about black lives, obviously, as they just took the life of an 8-year-old black girl, whom, if she had been killed by cops, they would’ve feigned outrage and demanded the officer(s) involved be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
Not too surprisingly, Secoriea’s father, who appeared with Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms in a press conference to address the incident, utterly decimated the BLM movement as being illegitimate and not actually caring about black lives.
“They say black lives matter. You killed your own. You killed your own this time… They killed my baby because she crossed the barrier and made a U-turn. You killed a child. She didn’t do nothing to nobody.”
Secoriea’s mother said: “They didn’t give us time to make a U-turn. They started shooting at my car before we could even make a U-turn. Shooting my tires out, like why?”
Even the Democrat mayor had to call out this insanity: “We’ve talk [sic] a lot about what we are demanding from our officers in our communities. We’ve protested, we’ve demonstrated, we’ve been angry, we’ve cried, we’ve demanded action. Well now we’re demanding action for Secoriea Turner and for all of the other people who were shot in Atlanta last night and over the past few weeks because the reality is this – these aren’t police officers shooting people on the streets of Atlanta, these are members of the community shooting each other, and in this case, it is the worst possible outcome.”
“You can’t blame this on a police officer, you can’t say this is about criminal justice reform. This is about some people carrying some weapons who shot up a car with an eight-year-old baby in the car. We got to stop this. We are doing each other more harm than any police officer on this force. We’ve had over 75 shootings in the city over the past several weeks,” the mayor continued.
When even a Democrat mayor can’t defend the actions of BLM rioters, you know they went too far. Granted, all of their actions in recent time have gone too far, from rioting to looting to burning down buildings (the Wendy’s itself was burned down, as I mentioned, because of the actions of criminals), but those are all Democrat-sponsored acts of violence, so it is quite the sight to see the Democrat mayor, who sided against the officer who justifiably killed Brooks, be against this. And let’s not ignore the fact that this isn’t the only black life lost over this time.
David Dorn’s life was lost. A 16-year-old’s life in the now-former CHAZ was lost, making him one of three people who died in that place. A number of other black people have lost their lives because they were either police officers themselves, and thus were targeted, or were simply in the wrong place at the wrong time, as with the case of Secoriea. On the same day as this tragic shooting, in the city of Chicago, a city whose streets run as red as the Bulls’ logo, a 7-year-old was killed in a shooting. Her crime? Visiting her grandma.
Last Tuesday, a 3-year-old girl was wounded in a shooting and a 15-year-old was shot just blocks away. A 20-month-old boy and a 10-year-old girl were killed in separate attacks last weekend and five children were fatally shot, including a 3-year-old, just last week.
Black lives don’t matter to Black Lives Matter. The only ones that do matter are the ones that are beneficial to their narrative. The killing of Rayshard Brooks, though it was justified, angered these people, but these are the same people who are now responsible for the death of an 8-year-old at the very least. These are the same kind of people who took the lives of David Dorn, Dave Patrick Underwood, David McAtee, Chris Beaty and Italia Marie Kelly. The same people who have dedicated themselves to tearing down and destroying the statue of FREDERICK DOUGLASS, a black abolitionist who helped countless slaves escape via the Underground Railroad.
The same people who lambast actor Terry Crews for asking for EQUALITY, that #blacklivesmatter would not be transformed into #blacklivesbetter, or black supremacy, in other words.
Black lives simply do not matter to the Black Lives Matter movement because it is a neo-Marxist movement, as admitted to by its own LEADERS. The movement itself is a communist movement under the guise of racial equality and justice. There is nothing just, racially or otherwise, about communism and the only equality to be found is equal sharing of misery. Communism renders people slaves to the state, so no one can dare tell me that this is an idea that would at all benefit the black community, or anyone who is not a part of the establishment.
The Left has NEVER cared for black lives and they only feign concern whenever the narrative is favorable to them. They see a white cop kneeling on a black man, leading said black man to die, and see not a tragedy but an opportunity. They see a cop shooting a black man armed with a taser after said taser was fired, showing the cop to be shooting in self-defense and see it not as a justified killing of a deadly threat but as an opportunity to sow discord and chaos, which obviously leads to the sort of tragedy that we began this article covering.
BLACK LIVES DON’T MATTER TO THE LEFT AND NEVER HAVE. Democrats used to own slaves and fought to keep them. When they lost that fight, they sought to enact racist Jim Crow laws that ensured the freed former slaves would practically have no ability to succeed financially or otherwise. In the meantime, they sought to create a terrorist organization, called the Ku Klux Klan, to terrorize and kill political opponents, namely Republicans, and black people used to largely be Republican back then because a Republican president had freed them. Democrats also sought to eradicate the black population through eugenics, namely abortion, as admitted to by Planned Parenthood’s founder Margaret Sanger.
And now, Democrats encourage black people to go out and “protest”, destroy as much as possible and be violent towards whomever they wish (so long as said Democrats are not personally affected in any way) and the Democrat fake news media will cover for them, claiming them to just be “peaceful protestors and demonstrators” literally as buildings are on fire as they utter such lies.
The Black Lives Matter movement itself is an enemy to black people, namely as they support communism, which makes slaves out of everyone, but particularly affects black people in a negative way.
This is who the Left is: a bunch of murderers with no remorse.
CNN, by the way, is covering this tragedy not as a tragedy of BLM terrorists murdering a kid, but as Secoriea being a victim of “gun violence.”
THIS, among many other reasons, is why the fake news media is the enemy of the people. The death of an 8-year-old at the hands of terrorists is covered as an opportunistic attack on gun rights. These people have absolutely no shame and their hearts are filled with nothing but the same evil that fills Satan’s.

Almost a month ago, I wrote about the great economic news for the May jobs report, in which 2.5 million jobs were created and the unemployment rate fell to 13.3%.
Well, on Thursday, we received even better news for the month of June (which was a rather chaotic one, even by 2020 standards), and the numbers are even better. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the economy created 4.8 million jobs in the month of June and the unemployment rate fell to 11.1%, as the country continues battling with the Chinese coronavirus pandemic (though some governors have insisted on re-closing, which is the wrong thing to do, in my opinion).
The BLS said in a statement: “These improvements in the labor market reflected the continued resumption of economic activity that had been curtailed in March and April due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and efforts to contain it. In June, employment in leisure and hospitality rose sharply. Notable job gains also occurred in retail trade, education and health services, other services, manufacturing, and professional and business services.”
The report also showed that black unemployment dropped from 16.8% to 15.4% and Hispanic unemployment fell significantly from 17.6% to 14.5%.
Labor economist at the University of Tennessee told the Wall Street Journal: “We’re in the beginning of a slow recovery. I think the recovery will stall out if we don’t get control of the virus.”
While the virus does, indeed, have some impact on the current economic climate, there is no denying that the biggest factor was multiple governors’ decision to close down businesses (unconstitutionally). Naturally, businesses would have made adjustments to account for public health and safety, but being rendered inoperable via governors’ orders was going to cause far more economic damage than the virus itself.
So I think the economy will continue doing well, provided governors don’t panic (as some have done, including Texas Governor Gregg Abbott, ashamedly so) and look at the number of increasing cases (brought on by weeks of protesting and riots, not that the media would ever dare point to that as the reason) instead of the fact that hospitalizations have not increased that much or that deaths have still been going down (a rising number of cases also could be an indication of increased testing, since that is also what we are doing).
Provided that (Republican) governors don’t panic, we should still be seeing improving economic numbers. The issue, for the most part, is that the lockdowns have forced a number of small businesses to close and they are never going to reopen, or at least, most likely never will reopen. The biggest issue facing the economy right now isn’t the virus, but people’s reaction to it. And the American people want to go back to normal, as much as honestly possible. They want to be able to go back to work, understanding that certain things need to be changed in order to deal with the virus.
Now, the good news about the age we live in is that we will likely never see another situation like we saw during the Great Depression. Maybe statistically, but we likely won’t see the same sort of pictures we saw from that time period of people lining up at the unemployment line or people living in destitution (to the dismay of the Left, who would've loved to see people suffer financially just for the opportunity to score political points against Trump). The reason is simple: we have technology.
What I mean simply is that we have the ability to work from home, something that was not an option at all back during the Great Depression. I recently had a conversation with someone about this, and we noted the fact that, back during the Spanish Flu, the country simply did not have the option to lock itself down like we did. Of course, WWI was also happening at this time, but even without it, shutting down the economy was still not an option. Now, shutting down our economy is still a terrible idea and would definitely lead to economic turmoil no matter what, but many people have the option to work from home in this day and age.
If that option was not available, the economy would be in a FAR worse state today than it actually is (and I’m still assuming idiotic governors would have shut things down).
Let’s just hope and pray that these good economic news keep on rolling and we can get back to the great economic situation we were before the pandemic.

In this day and age, with the dominance of social media and its censorship of conservatives, not to mention poll after poll indicating a rise in popularity for socialism and communism among America’s youth, it is easy to get discouraged about the future of this country.
However, a recent poll by Young America’s Foundation (YAF) and Echelon Insights, reported by TownHall, shows a rather interesting picture about the way in which America’s youth views this country.
According to the poll, 82% of surveyors held a “very” or “somewhat” favorable opinion of the American flag, with 91% of high-school students and 73% of high school graduates saying the same. This tells us something very interesting which I will get to in a minute, though I doubt you haven’t figured it out yet.
In any case, 57% of respondents said “they believe America is ‘exceptional and unique’ and is a country that ‘values liberty.’” 54% also felt that America offers “opportunity for all who work for it,” and 46% said America is both a “good example for other countries” and that the nation “values justice”; 43% said the country “values equality.”
63% of respondents said they felt “extremely” or “very” comfortable standing for the national anthem and 58% were comfortable with reciting the Pledge of Allegiance.
80% of surveyors also reported a “very” or “somewhat” favorable view of war veterans, 75% favor the military, 72% the Constitution, 65% the Founding Fathers, and 57% favored the history of this country as a whole. Interestingly, 34% of respondents said they would be “extremely” or “very” willing to serve the country if we were to be attacked, 31% said they would serve if we went to war and 30% said they would serve during “peacetime.”
Now, there is a very important aspect to this poll, which takes me back to one of the figures earlier: the 91% of high school students and 73% of graduates who have a favorable opinion of the American flag. This is an indication of the sort of Marxist indoctrination that students go through post-high school, specifically in college.
The demographical makeup of the poll is as follows: 47% of respondents were male, while 53% were female. 42% of surveyors were high schoolers, or high-school aged, 13% were students working towards an associate’s degree, 31% working towards a bachelor’s degree and 7% towards a graduate degree. 21% of respondents reported being either “very” or “somewhat” conservative, 33% said they were “very” or “somewhat” progressive and 33% said they were moderate.
Perhaps the most important figure here is the number of high schoolers. A sizeable majority of the people surveyed here are still in high school, and while it’s been a long while since I have been in high school, I don’t exactly remember it as having been extremely Leftist to the point where I felt they were essentially indoctrinating me. Now, this was some time ago, as I said, and I was a bit more liberal at the time, so maybe I just didn’t really notice it too much, but I have no doubt that high schools generally indoctrinate kids less than universities do.
For example, there is this story about the daughter of a Republican Congressional candidate from Michigan who went on Twitter and outright begged for people to not vote for her father because he and she disagree on issues like socialism, communism, “systemic racism”, and other Leftist garbage. With the candidate being a conservative, I doubt he didn’t teach his daughter the right things. But whatever he may have taught her, it’s clear that the college he sent her to erased all of that and rewired her brain to be more like their desired communist puppet.
It’s no surprise at all that “college-educated” voters tend to vote Democrat, since colleges all attempt, to one extent or another, to indoctrinate kids to be against Republicans, conservatives, God and the country itself. So it really is no wonder to find such numbers in the YAF poll, considering that a sizable portion of the surveyors were still in high school. This is no knock on YAF, of course, but rather a warning of what sort of damage colleges do: they are meant to destroy any and all patriotism found within kids.
Parents tend to teach their kids to love this country, but colleges undo all of that. The ONLY reason the Left wants to make college free for anyone is so that more and more people attend and so that more and more people get indoctrinated.
People, including young generations, tend to be more patriotic when they are not subjected to mass indoctrination in colleges. Of course, government schools still try and do that, albeit to a lesser extent, but protecting oneself from the indoctrination of colleges is really the best solution, in my opinion.
Leftists might be calling to defund the police, but conservatives should be calling to defund universities (for a variety of reasons, not simply because they indoctrinate children, considering many colleges have ties to China, and that alone poses a massive national security threat for this country).
But apart from that, I am happy to see that even younger generations still typically hold conservative, patriotic beliefs. We must ensure, however, that the Left does not succeed in eroding such beliefs from our youth.
Happy Independence Day!

Well, it took all of three weeks for the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone (CHAZ) to have an incident of police brutality.
On Monday morning, CHAZ “security”, effectively the police of the zone, shot at a white Jeep repeatedly, killing a black 16-year-old and injuring a black 14-year-old in the process, supposedly due to the Jeep having driven through one of the barricades setting up the borders of the zone.
While few news sources are noting that it was the security force that perpetrated the shooting, AND Magazine makes the claim that it was CHAZ security, and security footage from the incident shows a woman shouting “Security! [unintelligible] We’re looking for a stolen Jeep. Multiple shots fired…”
Safe to say, if the woman was shouting “Security!” chances are that she is part of the CHAZ security force, as police tend to shout something similar.
As far as the reason for firing, supposedly, the people inside the vehicle had been firing at others, but seemingly no weapons had been recovered from the vehicle and the windows appeared to have been up (though the SPD reports that the crime scene aka the vehicle itself was tampered with, so it is certainly possible the kids inside the vehicle were firing, though much other evidence would have to come forward, such as what was shot and if people got hurt).
Regardless, one can’t help but look at this incident as “police brutality” perpetrated by people living in a zone that was created BECAUSE of police brutality. Counting this, there have been four shootings and, if I remember correctly, three of them led to black people being killed inside or near the CHAZ/CHOP zone.
CHAZ was illegitimately created as a response to the unjust killing of George Floyd, and in a matter of three weeks, you have what amounts to the police force in the zone going so far as to use lethal force, killing a black 16-year-old and injuring a black 14-year-old. The 16-year-old, I can assure you, won’t have his name trending on Twitter. The Left won’t be demanding people say his name. The Left won’t post a black square on Instagram in his honor. They won’t hold 738 funerals with hundreds of people risking infection to COVID-19 for this kid.
Now, the following day, on Tuesday, Seattle police forces shut down the CHAZ, following Mayor Jenny Durkam’s order, though let’s not pretend it had anything to do with the “police brutality” of the CHAZ “security” or any of the other violent crimes that occurred there in the last three weeks.
Late last week, Durkan announced she would be closing down the CHAZ by Sunday (she didn’t) supposedly due to the rampant crime going on in the zone, but it wasn’t until protesters, including communist councilwoman Kshama Sawant, showed up at her house to protest her decision.
Seemingly, as soon as the protesters began to be a threat to her, she decided to take action against them.
The Mayor’s office even had the audacity to claim in their statement that “Seattle can and should peacefully demonstrate but should not put families and children at risk.”
The communist mayor called the CHAZ the “summer of love” and claimed that Seattle was “fine”, despite a number of people having died already and numerous families having been put at risk. Remember, not everyone who was in CHAZ was there willingly. The insurrectionists outright took over a number of blocks. Plenty of people work and live in that area and were suddenly subject to the governing authority of college-indoctrinated communists who know very well how to destroy, but not build and run things. Families and children already were put at risk just by the riots themselves, let alone the insurrection, so don’t tell me the mayor did it because a number of families with children were put at risk. Just HER OWN family was put at risk. That was the only reason she decided to act.
And while I don’t blame her for acting for this reason, and in fact commend her for acting instead of bending the knee after being personally targeted like that, don’t try and tell me she did this because she was fearing the safety of the people of Seattle. She was perfectly fine with the insurrectionists taking over a part of Seattle, the CAPITOL HILL ITSELF, so long as she and her family were left alone and were totally unaffected. She is no different from the rest of the Left’s hypocrites, such as ESPN writer Chris Palmer encouraging the riots until the rioters got a bit too close to his neighborhood and home in specific, at which point he called them “animals”, or the mayors and council people who hired private security forces while calling for the defunding of the police.
Peace and safety for them, the ruling class, but none for you, the peasant class. Only THEY get to enjoy nice, peaceful lives. If you are the victim of violence because of the riots, it’s your fault for being in the way of “peaceful protesters fighting systemic racism”. If your life and the life of your family are at risk, too bad; don’t get in the way of “progress” and “healing”.
This is the same sort of mindset of the Soviets. John F. Kennedy, just about the only half-way decent Democrat in my mind (and even that is a bit of a stretch), once said: “We cannot negotiate with people who say what’s mine is mine and what’s yours is negotiable.” Communists have the mindset that what is theirs is theirs and what is yours is either negotiable, or also theirs. This is the mindset that comments like Obama’s infamous “you didn’t build that” comment stem from.
YOUR family doesn’t matter; theirs does. YOUR children don’t matter; theirs do. YOUR black life doesn’t matter if you stand in the way of the Left, as with the case of David Dorn and a slew of other black people and police officers who died trying to do the right thing. YOUR safety doesn’t matter if it stands in the way of the Leftist agenda.
And now, we have what is basically the police of the now-former CHAZ (in Seattle, at least, as there appears to be another CHAZ being formed in NYC, as if we needed another reason never to visit that crappy city) using violent and lethal force to take the life of a young black kid away, and injuring another one.
And don’t try and argue that they might’ve had good reason for it. You know the Left never cares about the reason a cop killed a black person. Michael Brown ASSAULTED the cop that ended up shooting him but the Left still hounded the officer, despite him having fired in self-defense. The Left gave no quarter to the officer in the Michael Brown shooting, despite it being self-defense, so what reason do I have to give quarter to the CHAZ security? The Left didn’t give Officer Wilson, the cop who killed Brown, the benefit of the doubt, so why should I give the benefit of the doubt to the CHAZ security?
Playing by the Left’s rules, the CHAZ “cops” killed a black teenager for no justifiable reason at all and should get the death penalty.
But either way, it is extremely ironic that an autonomous zone that was set up in response to police brutality (at least, that’s the official story) would feature a security force that would perpetuate police brutality.
Maybe the issue is about procedure and the circumstances surrounding an event, and not about the race of the officers and the suspect.

In the world of battling the outright insane religious beliefs of the climate doomsday cult, it is rare to see one who believes in climate change (at least, anthropogenic climate change, presumably) admit their wrongdoings and the dangerous nature of the climate alarmist movement that has traumatized young generations into believing the world will not even be around by the time they reach adulthood and that it is the fault of their parents and grandparents (and capitalism, because of course) that they are in such a situation. Usually, we just meet wacko after wacko pushing ever-more insane crap that has no basis in reality.
However, we do sometimes see actual climate scientists pushing back against the insane agenda of the climate doomsday cult (and suffer the consequences as a result). But even rarer than that is to see someone who used to participate in the very same climate alarmism and scare tactics recognize the error of their ways and attempt to not only atone but even apologize for it.
Which brings us to Michael Shellenberger, who wrote the following on environmentalprogress.org: “On Behalf Of Environmentalists, I Apologize For The Climate Scare.”
He begins by writing: “On behalf of environmentalists everywhere, I would like to formally apologize for the climate scare we created over the last 30 years. Climate change is happening. It’s just not the end of the world. It’s not even our most serious environmental problem.”
It must have taken a lot for the guy to come to grips with just how wrong the entire doomsday cult of climate change is and to come forward and apologize for having been a part of it. He further explains that he, himself, has been a climate activist for 20 years and an environmentalist for 30, has worked with the UN’s IPCC, serving as an Expert Reviewer of their Assessment Report. He even succeeded in convincing the Obama administration to invest in renewables.
He is, by no means, a “climate denier” (and that term has roots in “Holocaust denier” to delegitimize any opponents to the climate cult). He even explained that at 17, he lived in Nicaragua “to show solidarity with the Sandinista socialist revolution.” The guy is very much a Leftist, but at the very least, he is honest enough and sane enough to recognize the damage the Leftist climate cult has created.
Which is why he shares the following factoids:
So the guy is very much a liberal, and yet, he is willing to go against the cult by sharing these facts that directly contradict the cult’s narrative and rhetoric. Surely, there must be a reason, particularly for doing it now as opposed to any other time.
Well, as he explains, it wasn’t until last year that he began to be openly against the climate scare. Not because he believed it until last year, or because he was fully on board with the idea, but because of a couple of factors. For one, he says that he felt “embarrassed” about doing so, seeing as he, himself, was an alarmist for most of his life. As he explains, “for years, I referred to climate change as an ‘existential’ threat to human civilization, and called it a ‘crisis.’”
But that was only part of the reason for his avoidance of outspoken dissent. For the most part, he explains that he “was scared.” “I remained quiet about the climate disinformation campaign because I was afraid of losing friends and funding. The few times I summoned the courage to defend climate science from those who misrepresent it I suffered harsh consequences. And so I mostly stood by and did next to nothing as my fellow environmentalists terrified the public.”
“Gay Pride” month just ended, and I can’t help but make a noticeable connection between what Shellenberger said and what people on the Left often say about gay people: that it’s hard to come out to friends and family out of fear of rejection and consequences. That it’s hard to be gay or lesbian or whatever at work because of “persecution” or even for the potential of being fired just for that reason alone. However, the truth is that, in this day and age, it takes no courage at all to come out as gay or whatever else. Coming out as a conservative, a Christian, a Trump supporter, or even just as sane enough to not believe the climate cult’s agenda takes considerably more courage because THAT has more consequences in this day and age.
When you are a climate scientist and you offer a dissenting opinion towards the climate cult agenda, people will bash you into next week and there will outright be calls for your termination at your job. I have no doubt that Shellenberger truly was afraid of the consequences of doing what he’s doing and have no doubt that he already has, to one extent or another, suffer said consequences. I don’t know if he has suffered in terms of his job (and he wrote a book debunking the climate alarmists, which I will get to in a moment), but I have no doubt that, if nothing else, he has lost people he once considered “friends” for offering such dissent.
After all, being part of such a radical movement and then being outspokenly against it will brand you a traitor to the cause and leave you with few honest friends.
But what finally got Shellenberger to swallow said fear and come out against the insanity of the cult was a number of things. For one, there is what Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said regarding what will happen in a 12 years if we “don’t do something” about climate change. Though that’s not the ONLY thing that got Shellenberger to act, of course. As he explains, “last year, things spiraled out of control.” AOC’s doomsday “prophecy” and a high-profile environmental group from Britain declaring “Climate Change Kills Children” (didn’t know Planned Parenthood changed their name to “Climate Change”) were among the many reasons Shellenberger decided to be outspoken.
But perhaps what were the biggest reasons were a poll that said that “half of the people surveyed around the world last year said they thought climate change would make humanity extinct,” and another poll that said “in January, one out of five British children told pollsters they were having nightmares about climate change.”
The fact that the climate cult is TRAUMATIZING children with crap that is absolutely not true is what got Shellenberger to write his book: “Apocalypse Never: Why Environmental Alarmism Hurts Us All.”
The Left is outright abusing children, filling their minds with pessimistic outlooks of a grim world that they will inherit supposedly because of their parents and grandparents and because of the economic system of capitalism. These jackals are scaring children half to death just to obtain political power.
The fact that Shellenberger has a daughter himself was also a part of it, as she has had to tackle the topic of climate change, and even though Shellenberger has taught her well with regards to the topic, her friends are still misinformed and she would likely be the only dissenting opinion in her group of friends were she to try and correct them, which would undoubtedly cause her to suffer the consequences of such dissent.
So, Shellenberger decided to write a book and was kind enough to share some highlights from it for our understanding.
For example, he writes that:
As you can see, he is still used to using Leftist terminology like “saving the environment” as opposed to simply saying “protecting” it, as that would be a bit more accurate, I’d say.
As I have stated in the past, if the Left truly cared about moving away from fossil fuels while also truly helping the environment, they would advocate for nuclear power, since that would accomplish both, but alas they are adamantly against it for a number of reasons ranging from “they are extremely stupid and misinformed” to “they don’t actually care about the environment, just the power they can obtain through abusing it as a narrative”.
In the book, aside from these factoids, Shellenberger also explains the reasons as to why the climate cult operates as it does, and honestly, it’s not for reasons one would be shocked to hear: financial, political and ideological motivations. There is money in environmentalism for those interested and the political Leftists view it as a means to achieve global communism, a system in which they and only they get to profit and thrive, trying to replace God with government.
But regardless of that, I am glad that Shellenberger has realized the error of his ways and has recognized the dangers of the climate cult. I am glad that he formally chose to apologize for having been a part of it (apology certainly accepted) and more importantly, I am glad that he chose to speak out against the climate cult (even if he won’t necessarily call them that) and wrote a book debunking their lies.
What’s more, Shellenberger offers a good bit of hope for the future. Though he recognizes that the faulty ideology of Malthusianism, which has been repeatedly debunked for a couple of centuries now, even by yours truly, is “more powerful than ever” as a result of the Left’s indoctrination of children in school, there is reason “to believe that environmental alarmism will, if not come to an end, have diminishing cultural power.”
He says this because the Chinese coronavirus pandemic has led to the WHO and even the IPCC to lose credibility. Remember, it was the WHO that was doing the bidding of the Chinese, telling people that there was no “human-to-human” transmission even though that was proven to have been a lie from the Chinese. No one has any reason to trust the WHO anymore, and by extension, the other “scientific” institutions under the UN (or even in general).
I would say more, but this article is already rather long and I must draw it to a close. In conclusion, I would simply like to say that Shellenberger is certainly forgiven and that I hope he will not get discouraged by the Left’s tactics of destruction that will definitely come for him soon enough.
I hope and pray that Shellenberger is successful in at least convincing a good amount of people of the reality that is separate from the cult’s depiction of it.

It’s not a rare occurrence to see the fake news media being proven wrong by either other media or by itself, but what is a fairly rare occurrence is for the fake news media to make a bold claim and then proceed to disprove themselves with facts and data in the same article.
Last week, President Trump said the following during a White House event: “You hear about certain places like Chicago and you hear about what’s going on in Detroit and other – other cities, all Democrat run. Every one of them is Democrat run. Twenty out of 20. The worst, the 20 most dangerous are Democrat run.”
Philip Bump, writing for the Washington Post, insisted, as his headline suggested, that “Trump keeps claiming that the most dangerous cities in America are all run by Democrats. They aren’t,” and then proceeds to write the following: “It’s not clear how Trump is defining ‘most dangerous’ in this context.”
So the guy is trying to say “no, Trump is lying!” while also saying “I don’t know what Trump means specifically”. This is the caliber of fake news we are dealing with on a daily basis. They deny Trump’s claims while also not knowing exactly what he’s talking about.
What Trump is talking about in this current political context is the fact that Democrats are running the cities where there were riots, looting and burning of buildings supposedly over the death of George Floyd. Democrats are running the cities where ANTIFA and BLM are trying to tear down, or are succeeding in tearing down, statues of historical figures, regardless of what they supported: be they Confederate officers, abolitionists, segregationists, even Thomas Jefferson, George Washington and St. Louis IX, a FRENCH king, have been targeted. The ONLY places where there were riots, and in particular, where riots were ALLOWED to occur by governing authorities, are all run by Democrats.
That is largely what Trump means, but even according to Bump’s own interpretation of what Trump means, Trump is still largely right.
You see, Bump, likely believing the riots were either not real or they were “largely peaceful”, thought Trump meant “most dangerous” in terms of crime data; that Trump was saying that the 20 cities with the most violent crime and most violent crime per capita were all run by Democrats.
And technically speaking, Trump is wrong. Not all 20 cities with the most violent crime and most crime per capita are Democrat-run. Only ALMOST ALL of them are. Yeah, what a difference.
Bump shares the following data:
As you can see, only 17 of the 20 most violent cities in America are run by Democrats. Checkmate, Drumpf!
No, but seriously, Bump himself gave us this little gem and I think he realizes how much of an idiot he is for sharing it IN HIS OWN ARTICLE.
Likely after noticing that there is only ONE Republican in that list of most violent crime and ZERO Republicans in the per capita graph, Bump said that “it doesn’t really matter that the other mayors are Democrats.”
His reasoning? That cities generally have more crime than suburban and rural areas do, and cities tend to vote for Democrats.
While that may be true, it’s a red herring argument. It absolutely matters that the mayors are Democrats because Republicans and Democrats (usually) have different policies when it comes to crime, particularly in this current climate.
Democrats are calling for the “defunding” or abolition of police departments nationwide. Many demand the abolition of prisons. They demand asinine crap like bail reform that allows for violent criminals to walk in and out of prison like they’re going in for a haircut. They demand the decriminalization of things from prostitution to marijuana. They ENCOURAGE violent mobs destroying statues and businesses and even other people’s homes, provided that their own homes are never targeted. In Minneapolis, Democrats have voted to make a referendum for citizens to vote on whether or not to dismantle their police department this November.
Republicans, on the other hand, tend to be tougher on crime and friendlier to police (again, usually, though not always). They want criminals to be held accountable for their crimes and for citizens to be able to live peaceful lives as much as possible.
Given these differences, it’s ridiculous to suggest that it doesn’t matter that Democrats run 17 or 19 of the 20 most dangerous cities in the country (by violent crime standards, though also by the standards Trump used in his own context). If people keep voting Democrat, these are the crime rates they should be expecting to see. Do cities tend to have higher crime rates anyway? Perhaps, but that’s not the only or even the biggest contributor to that.
By the time Rudy Giuliani left office as mayor of New York City, the violent crime rate and murder rate dropped 55.6% and 66.4% respectively since he first took office. And while the crime rate was already going down somewhat before he took office, it PLUMMETED once he became mayor. And yet, what city did we see topping the chart for most violent crime in recent time? New York City, where a Democrat is running things.
Mayoral policies, obviously, affect what happens in the cities. What policies a mayor has and chooses to employ will have an effect on the city, and Democrats tend to be awfully soft on crime, which is why we see the numbers and figures that we’re seeing. It absolutely matters what political party a mayor belongs to and we are seeing the results.
Democrats run the “s**holes” precisely because their policies are designed to turn whatever place they run into such a hellish land. Yes, the fact that cities have higher populations is an important factor, but what is even more important is what sort of policy the mayor employs.
But enough with trying to argue against the deceiver’s red herring argument. The main thing is that the guy tried to “disprove” Trump only to come right out and say he didn’t exactly understand what Trump meant and went on to provide evidence that just about proves Trump right, for the most part.
No, not all 20 of the most violent cities are run by Democrats. Only 17 of them are, and 19 when talking about per 10,000 residents. What a great technical victory for the Democrats it must be that not all of the most dangerous cities are run by them, only almost all.

It’s late June of an election year, so it’s no surprise at all to see multiple Left-wing polls claiming that Trump is toast; that he’s going to lose and lose badly; that he is headed for a crushing defeat; that the walls are closing in and the American people are tired of Donald Trump. It’s the exact same song and dance we heard throughout 2016. Remind me, what was the result of that election?
Perhaps the only difference between 2016 and 2020 is that the media has fooled some Trump supporters into believing he is on the path to defeat. However, I highly doubt that’s the case at all for a number of reasons.
First of all, we were hearing this same bullcrap from the same people four years ago. Eddie Zipperer has a great thread on Twitter with numerous articles from 2016 that showed Hillary Clinton with 85-99% chance at winning, multiple electoral map results that showed she would win at minimum 300 electoral votes, and just article after article from the fake news media saying that Donald Trump had no chance in hell of becoming President of the United States. Four years later, they’re trying to tell us that the guy whom they said had no chance of winning but still won once again has no chance of winning.
Reuters had Clinton’s chances of getting elected at 90%. The Monday before the election, CNN had Clinton’s chances of winning at over 90%. MSNBC had a “scientist” predict that Clinton had a 99% chance of being elected. Stanford University said the same.
The Huffington Post predicted that Clinton would win 323 electoral votes, with Princeton predicting the same. Joy Reid predicted Clinton winning 340. Moody’s Analytics predicted Clinton would win 332 electoral votes. FiveThirtyEight had Clinton winning as few as 375 electoral votes and as many as 471.
Day in and day out, for months on end until even election day itself, these “journalists” were all of the belief that Hillary Clinton was practically DESTINED to become President of the United States.
And what do we see today? Fox News having Biden winning Florida by 9 percentage points, Georgia by 2, North Carolina by 2 and TEXAS by 1. Redfield & Wilton saying Biden is winning in Pennsylvania by 10 points, Michigan by 11, North Carolina by 6, Florida by 4 and Arizona by 4. CNBC saying that Biden is 9 points ahead nationally. Reuters saying that Biden is ahead 10 points nationally. The Economist/YouGov saying Biden is winning by 8 points nationally. NYT/Sienna showing Biden winning 14% nationally. Fox News showing Biden winning 12% nationally. Quinnipiac showing Biden winning 8% nationally, etc., etc.
It’s the exact same song and dance and roughly the same numbers we were seeing back in 2016. And you’re telling me that this time it’s somehow different?
Let me tell you what is actually different this time around that will affect the election: Trump has a record now.
Back in 2016, he ran on policy but could hardly back it up with things from his past because he ran a real estate empire and was a reality tv star. People trusted him with the economy (still do in most polls, and that is always the biggest issue) because of his experience but had to just trust his word for the rest of the job as POTUS and he delivered. He delivered on the economy, that’s for sure. He delivered on being the most pro-life president. He delivered on his stance against illegal immigration (not that he got any help from the GOP) and despite the troubles we face today, I trust that he can still take care of it all (there are hundreds of DOJ investigations into the people tearing down statues, so don’t tell me he isn’t being a law and order president).
Like I said towards the beginning of the pandemic: the virus cannot be blamed on Trump, and neither can the actions of other people. The virus itself came from China because they are dirty liars opportunistically setting the world on fire. The lockdown orders came from the governors individually, and not even all the states decided to lock things down. The economy is not doing great right now, but it was for three years under Trump and he will do it again, provided we open back up in full (and we have to at one point or another).
As far as the cases go, that has more to do with increased testing than the virus being out of control. And considering the CDC chief said that Chinese coronavirus cases could be ten times higher than confirmed cases, that only means that the mortality rate is a tenth of what it is today: 0.26%, so if the chief is right, the mortality rate should actually be 0.026%, which is considerably lower than the flu.
In other words, we have absolutely no reason at all to be shutting things down or keeping things shut down. Once people begin realizing this, the economy will make a great comeback and that will definitely boost Trump’s chances at re-election.
While the last few months haven’t exactly been great for Trump (and 2020 has really been a huge mess for basically everyone), I’m not at all convinced that Trump is headed for an electoral defeat, especially considering who his opponent is.
Granted, Biden is really helped by the fact that he is being kept hidden in the basement for the most part, but at one point or another, he will have to debate Donald Trump and will actually have to make public appearances more often. That is something he nor the Democrats can allow to happen which is part of the reason they are so adamant about going back to the virus as a main talking point (and because covering wanton destruction of property and violence coming from Leftists won’t exactly help convince voters to vote for Leftist Democrats).
Of course, the biggest threat to Donald Trump right now isn’t Joe Biden but voter fraud in the form of mail-in ballots, which the Left is all too happy about implementing for this election considering how absurdly easy it would be for them to cheat through this system. But otherwise, I don’t see how Biden beats Trump (which isn’t to say that he couldn’t and this is no license for people not to vote for Trump).
Now, one last thing I want to talk about actually has something to do with what Zipperer said at the end of his Twitter thread regarding all of the fake polls about Clinton. Zipperer said: “These are all the same ‘experts’ now making all the same predictions because their predictions aren’t about being right; their predictions are about gaslighting you out of voting.”
And he definitely is right. These polls aren’t meant to be accurate. They are meant to make you feel demoralized, like you are headed for crushing defeat, and that there is no real point in going out to vote because defeat is assured. They are meant to keep you from voting by making you feel there would be no point in spending hours at the polling booth if your guy is just going to lose anyway. The ironic thing about this is that I believe this is a double-edged sword. It might get some people demoralized and believe there is no point in voting for Trump, but it also leaves some Democrats overconfident and believe victory is assured so there is no point in spending those same hours at the polling booth if their guy is going to win anyway.
We just have to make sure that our side does not get demoralized by what the fake news media is claiming is the reality at hand, when that’s not at all the case. What reason does any one of us have to believe the same fake news polls from the same fake news sources that have for the past four years tried to insist to us that Trump had no chance at getting nominated, elected, cheated to get elected, was planning on cheating to get re-elected through either Russia, Ukraine or China, and now has no chance at getting re-elected?
Why would anyone believe the words of known liars and biased, agenda-driven deceivers?

It’s nothing new to see radical Leftists invoke the name of the Lord to defend their outright satanic beliefs. Radical Leftists often tried to use the Bible to defend the institution of slavery and to defend segregation. Radical Leftists try to use the Bible to defend the mass genocide of babies in the womb. So it’s not surprising to see a BLM communist invoke the name of the Lord to defend the destruction of the United States.
In a recent interview with Martha MacCallum, Hawk Newsome, communist leader of the Black Lives Matter of Greater New York, did exactly that in his defense of the riots.
MacCallum brought up the following quote from Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. and asked what Newsome thought of it: “Let us be dissatisfied until that day when nobody will shout, ‘White Power!’ when nobody will shout ‘Black Power!’ but everybody will talk about God’s power and human power. Do you agree with that?”
Newsome then had the gall to say the following: “I love the Lord. And my lord and savior, Jesus Christ, is the most famous black radical revolutionary in history. He was treated just like Dr. King. He was arrested on occasion, and he was also crucified or assassinated. This is what happens to black activists, we are killed by the government.”
If he truly was a Christian, he would know not to compare Jesus with anyone, let alone “black radical revolutionaries”. Christ was NOT a black radical revolutionary.
Throughout the interview following that statement, Newsome tried to make the point repeatedly that Jesus was not white. Considering He was in the Middle East, I imagine He might not have been, but if He were white, black or whatever else, He is still the Lord and our Savior, so true Christians would still follow Him. Considering how adamant Newsome was about saying Christ wasn’t white, as though that matters, I don’t believe for one second that he would follow the Lord if He had been white.
But that just addresses the “black” part. Let’s address the “radical revolutionary” part. Jesus never set out to overthrow the government of His time and repeatedly made note of that. Jesus said in Mark 12:17: “Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.” He didn’t call for an overthrow of Caesar (as the Pharisees believed and tried to trap Jesus into admitting as much). He didn’t call for a toppling of Rome. He made note that His Kingdom is not of this world, so He was NOT a revolutionary at all.
Next, and perhaps most importantly, Jesus was not killed by the government like a “black activist”. To insinuate Jesus was a “black activist” is a damnable insult. Jesus was killed by a BLOODTHRISTY MOB that DEMANDED His blood. Even Pontius Pilate said he found no guilt in Jesus. Luke 23:4 says: “Then Pilate said to the chief priests and the crowds, ‘I find no guilt in this man.’” Later on, it even says that Herod, who was the ruler in Jesus’ district of Galilee and also had the ability to judge Jesus, found no guilt in Jesus for what He was being charged with.
But the crowd insisted that Pilate would punish Jesus and would instead release Barabbas, who was, as verse 19 says: “a man who had been thrown into prison for an insurrection started in the city and for murder.” Similarly to the mob of today, the mob that called for the death of Jesus would rather have a horrible criminal and dangerous person be released than someone who is innocent.
Pilate further insisted on releasing Jesus but the crowd chanted: “Crucify, crucify him!” Soon after, Pilate relented and bent the knee to the mob, giving them what they wanted, and ordered the death of Jesus.
So Jesus was not killed by Rome. He was not killed by the government. He was killed BY THE MOB THAT DEMANDED HIS BLOOD BE SPILLED. He was killed because a government figure bent the knee to the mob.
That Newsome does not know this is not at all a surprise to me. HE ISN’T A CHRISTIAN! Christ is nowhere to be found in his heart, else he wouldn’t believe what he believes or say what he says!
Later in the interview, Newsome says that he wanted “black liberation and black sovereignty… by any means necessary.” Does that sound like something a Christian would say?
Blacks in the U.S. ARE ALREADY LIBERATED AND HAVE BEEN FOR A CENTURY AND A HALF! And of course, it’s hard to ignore the call for “black sovereignty”, which is, of course, black supremacy. The guy is no different or better from the neo-Nazis who call for white supremacy instead.
The guy demands black liberation when he claims to be a Christian. A Christian IS ALREADY FREE BECAUSE OF THE WORKS OF CHRIST AT THE CROSS! He wants black sovereignty or supremacy. That is not equality at all and shows us the type of person he is. Christ’s people will rule and judge the world alongside Him.
Revelation 20:4 says: “Then I saw thrones, and seated on them were those to whom the authority to judge was committed. Also I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for the testimony of Jesus and for the word of God, and those who had not worshipped the beast or its image and had not received its mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ for a thousand years.”
There is no black sovereignty. There is no white sovereignty. There is no human sovereignty. The only sovereignty that exists is strictly the Lord’s and we all have a single path to salvation.
That Newsome believes Jesus to have been equal to a black activist destroying property, setting fires, assaulting people and killing people is outright blasphemous and I hope he repents. What he said is nothing short of an insult to the Lord and a threat to this country, which he intends to destroy to bring about black supremacy.
This man is no Christian at all, and just because he professes to have faith, that does not mean he actually possesses it. It’s clear, from this single interview, that he does not speak as one who has Christ in his heart. He has hatred – Satan – in his heart.
Christ was not a “black radical revolutionary.” He was not a black activist. He was not even killed by the government. He is the Lord. He is the King. He was killed to satisfy a mob. Newsome is part of the mob we see today, making demands and threatening destruction and unruliness if the demands are not met.
Newsome speaks more like a radical terrorist than a Christian. He should look inside his own heart and be afraid of what is in there. He should repent of the blasphemous things he said and believes. But as a radical Leftist, I don’t really expect him to do such a thing.
Who knows, though? Maybe the Lord will bring wisdom onto Newsome and get him to repent. I won’t judge Newsome because it’s not my job to do so. But what he said and currently believes is damnable and I will condemn it to Hell.

Over the span of two days, failure of a governor Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) blamed the federal government, Republicans, and nursing staff workers for the effects of his March 25th executive order which sent sick people to nursing homes en masse.
On Monday, Cuomo appeared on MSNBC Live to lie to people about his failures as a governor, saying that they had more people in nursing homes die “because the federal government missed the boat and never told us that the virus was coming from Europe and not from China.”
This is a load of crap for a number of reasons. First of all, it ORIGINATED in China, but it’s always good to know just who is in bed with the Chinese, trying to absolve them of their crimes against humanity JUST relating to the Chinese coronavirus. Second of all, everyone, INCLUDING CUOMO, knew that the virus went to Europe too and went to New York from Europe.
Back on March 25th, the same day he gave the executive order to send sick people to nursing and retirement homes, Cuomo said that New York was the hardest-hit state because “we welcome people from across the globe… we have people coming here, we have people who came here from China, who came here from Italy, who came here from all across the globe.”
Cuomo, back in March, was paying as much attention to the situation in Italy and Europe as a whole as the rest of us were. So he absolutely cannot blame the federal government not warning people about the virus coming from Europe when that is a demonstrable lie and Cuomo himself was perfectly aware of the fact that he was getting people from Italy (and funny that he mentioned China here, whom he is now trying to absolve and say the virus didn’t come from there).
Third, it has been PROVEN that China was withholding information from everyone, allowing international travel but barring travel from within the mainland, and overall opportunistically setting the world on fire with this virus. We operated using the information given to us by the Chinese and the China-owned WHO. So if you wanna blame anybody, Andy, blame the Chinese for lying to the world for months.
In any case, he also attacked Republicans, not necessarily for the deaths of the virus, but for pointing out Cuomo’s failures and the effects of his executive order, claiming they are just "playing politics." The s.o.b. is trying to claim Republicans POINTING OUT HOW MUCH OF A FAILURE HE IS FOR PUTTING SICK PEOPLE IN NURSING HOMES are playing politics as he, himself, is trying to absolve himself of all blame and clearly doing very poorly. This is awfully reminiscent of Hillary Clinton blaming everyone from James Comey to married women to Barack Obama to Russia for her electoral loss in 2016. It’s a sign of desperation and cracking, blaming a number of things on everyone else, when in reality, Clinton’s failures are her own and in this case, Cuomo’s failures are his own.
And most recently, appearing on “Morning Joe” on Tuesday, Cuomo tried to defend his executive order, blame it on the federal government, say that the order, which he blames on the fed, was not a mistake, and goes on to blame the staff at the nursing homes.
Co-host Willie Geist asked the monumental failure: “Looking back now, with the information you have, was it a mistake to issue that March 25 order to send people back into the nursing homes, now that you have all the information you have?”
Cuomo pathetically answered: “First, it was a – it was federal guidance that we put out, Willie… No, it wasn’t a mistake. Because if you look at the facts, not that anybody looks at facts anymore (projecting onto others what he does), by the time – you didn’t want to leave a senior citizen in a hospital for two weeks if they didn’t need to be in a hospital bed for two weeks… And what all the data says is, the reason you had infections in the nursing homes [was] because the staff brought in the infection… So, it is that the staff got infected, they came to work, and they brought in the infection.”
What a pathetic liar. Again, the executive order was not federal guidance at all. It was HIS OWN ORDER. And now, he’s blaming the staff for “getting infected and showing up to work anyway”. Every state worked hard to ensure that doctors, nurses and overall medical staff was able to take care of patients safely. Usually, whomever got sick would NOT show up to work, because that’s common sense. Every state operated this way, and yet, New York was the only one with this bad of a problem? So it’s not that the staff was bringing in the infection (or at least, that was not the major reason). Over 6,000 senior citizens died precisely BECAUSE of the March 25th order sending sick people, not even exclusively older people, into retirement homes to spread the virus like a wildfire.
So to keep count, Cuomo is blaming the federal government for “not warning” him that the virus was coming from Europe, even though he’s been shown to have noticed it came from there too, is blaming the federal government for HIS executive order, while also saying that it was not a mistake to issue the order, is attacking Republicans for pointing out the fact he is responsible for the deaths of over 6,000 senior citizens, and is blaming the NURSING STAFF at those homes for bringing in the infection into the homes, as if sending sick people to those homes was not at all going to contribute.
I honestly don’t know who the bigger clown is out of him and Bill DeBlasio.

Earlier this week, Black Lives Matter protesters showed up to protest defenders of a monument to former Vice President John C. Calhoun, who was an advocate for slavery in a time when it was being heavily debated and his dedication served as the ground work for the South seceding from the Union (though Calhoun specifically did not want the South to secede, ironically).
Amidst all of the chaos and vandals destroying and tearing down statues of various historical figures, from George Washington to Thomas Jefferson to Cervantes (who was, himself, a slave at one point in his life), a group of people sought to defend the monument dedicated to Calhoun from people who might target it and further seek to destroy our nation’s history.
This defense of Calhoun’s monument was discovered and BLM activists showed up to (actually) peacefully protest the defenders and the monument itself. However, at one point, a group of white people showed up pretending to be slaves, carrying signs that read: “Cracker for Sale”, “Hang that Cracker”, “What if this was your (white) history?” and “What if the roles were reversed?” Some of these white protesters even had put on make-up on their bodies that made them look like they received whip lashes.
Before I get to the funny part about this where some BLM protesters were outright ticked off, let me say the following: these white people are disgusting and dangerously misinformed (not that this is anything new).
For one, simulating being slaves is awful, no matter how you look at it. It’s outright offensive towards those who were actual slaves and who actually had scars due to whip lashes and general abuses. And you know I’m being serious because I don’t often use the word “offensive” without also mocking whomever might be “offended.” This is actually and really offensive, which is probably why BLM protestors were ticked off.
Secondly, let’s discuss the signs, particularly the “what if this was your (white) history?” That question presupposes that the people defending Calhoun are also defending slavery, which is not at all the case. No one in this country today (at least, not sane people) would defend the atrocity of slavery. Not one person who was there to defend the Calhoun monument was there to defend his beliefs.
To give you a very brief history of Calhoun, the guy served as VP to John Quincy Adams in 1824 but switched to the then-recently-formed Democratic Party in 1828 to run with Andrew Jackson against Adams (obviously, Jackson won). Throughout Calhoun’s tenure as VP and eventually as a Senator, he was a strong proponent of slavery, argued that the Constitution didn’t give Congress the power to abolish slavery (this became the basis for “State’s Rights” for the South’s secession), and asserted that the South “cannot remain here in an endless struggle in defense of our character, our property, and institutions,” and that “we must become, finally, two peoples… Abolition and the Union cannot co-exist.”
The guy himself, obviously, was not exactly the best person in the world. Slavery was never a moral thing and the guy was, himself, rather immoral for wanting to protect the institution of slavery. However, tearing down a monument dedicated to the guy does nothing towards making amends for slavery and racism. All it does is further eliminate our history, which is what the Marxists want in order to create an eternal present dominated by them.
But in any case, let’s return to the actual protesters. Like I said, BLM was livid at the liberal white people pretending to be slaves. One of the BLM protesters shouted: “Put that s*** down, sister! Don’t do that! Why are you here? Your attitude! I know you’re f***ing kidding me! I know you’re f***ing kidding me!”
It is pretty evident that the BLM protesters were not exactly fond of the behavior of the entitled white liberals parading around like slaves, supposedly in support of the Black Lives Matter protesters. Not that one ought to expect much else from such people.
This is what white guilt brings to people who subscribe to the idiocy. These white folk are so ridden with guilt over their very skin color (and no one, for some reason, is saying that such a belief is racist and you know very well that if we were talking about black people feeling guilty for being black, there would be an outcry about racism) that they think it is appropriate to showcase themselves in reversed roles to the historical reality: the white people as the slaves and the black people as the owners. How you come to believe this is in any way okay is beyond me, but this is the sentiment brought about by white guilt.
White guilt gets white people to outright feel bad for being white. It gets them to believe they are at any capacity responsible for the atrocities of DEMOCRATS in the past and that simply being white, not even necessarily being related to slave owners, but just being a white person, is enough to condemn someone of past racism.
Do you know who else acts like this? Who else brings up people’s past and puts feelings of guilt and shame in their hearts? Who else makes people believe that any sort of atonement is insufficient and that forgiveness cannot really be achieved? Satan. Only these people are condemning an entire race for what few members of it did in the past.
I’ve already used this example before, but saying that white people today bear the responsibility of slavery from the past is the same as saying that the son of a serial killer bears the responsibility of their serial killer father and ought to be punished for that link. It’s not just in the least.
Slavery is a thing of the past. Not one black person today (in the U.S. at least, since many countries in the Middle East allow for slavery and Libya has open slave markets, but no one is talking about that slavery) has been a slave. Not one black person was owned by another person today. Not one black person today was forced to pick cotton or other plants. And not one white person today has owned a slave. To blame today’s white people in general for the sins of DEMOCRATS in the past is not just. And if you want to blame anyone, blame the actual DEMOCRATS who were a part of it. Blame the Democrat Party which fought for slavery, was split on segregation (and Joe Biden’s best friends were segregationists) and even today is entirely focused on race, only playing things a little bit differently.
Not that I expect white liberals to really be able to understand why this is all so insane. White guilt poisons the mind.
