There might be some of you who wish to see me talking about the case made against Brett Kavanaugh surrounding the accusations made against him, as well as the testimony that has been given by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford this past week. However, I will refrain from making any sort of comment regarding this until after Judge Brett Kavanaugh has either been confirmed to the Supreme Court (which is what I believe will happen) or he gets denied. As it stands, I believe you know my position: I do not believe any of the (now 4) claims made against Kavanaugh as not a single one of them offers any sort of evidence or witness that can or has corroborated the claims.
So until Kavanaugh is either confirmed or denied, I won’t talk about this. But rest assured I will cover as much as absolutely possible next week, barring any more b.s. delays.
With that topic taken care of, let’s get down to the crux of this article. And don’t worry, I won’t completely leave the Kavanaugh case out of this article.
The Swedish Advertising Ombudsman, a Swedish advertisement watchdog, went after an internet service provider named Bahnhof which had used the “Distracted Boyfriend Meme” (picture above) which was used to advertise to people searching for a new job.
Allow me to give you some background information as a Millennial who uses the internet more than he goes outside. The “Distracted Boyfriend Meme”, as depicted above, features a guy holding his girlfriend’s hand, but his gaze is directed towards a woman who is seemingly more attractive than his girlfriend. All-the-while, the girlfriend looks at her boyfriend in both disbelief and disgust at the fact that he is looking at another woman with that particular face, which seems to signify some sort of approval, or as if to say “ohhh, look at dat …” Ahem. Anyway.
This meme went viral last year and was still somewhat used this year. Bahnhof, the internet service company, used this meme to signify the target audience (the distracted boyfriend) might be looking for a better job than the one they currently have (the two girls).
However, The Swedish Advertising Ombudsman claimed that the meme itself was “gender discriminatory” aka sexist. The Ombudsman said: “It portrays women as interchangeable objects, and that only their appearance is interesting. According to the committee, the objectification is reinforced by the fact that women are designated as workplace representatives while the man, as the recipient of the advertisement, is being produced as an individual.”
Now, Bahnhof argued that they only used the meme to “show that Bahnhof is an attractive employer and that those who have a slightly less good employer could be interested in us.”
The statement continues: “Everyone who follows the internet and meme culture knows how the meme is used and interpreted. [Whether someone is a] man, woman or neutral gender is often irrelevant in this context. We are an internet company and are conversant in this, as are those who would look for a job with us, so we turned to that target group. If we should be punished for anything, it’s for using an old and tired meme.”
According to the Daily Wire, Bahnhof also “reportedly shared several variations of the meme with characters of varying gender and species to show that gender was not the driving factor behind the use of the meme.”
All of this comes some time after the European Union voted in favor of implementing a new copyright directive that would basically ban internet memes in European countries because those memes could be subject to copyrights claims if not credited to the proper creator. However, given that internet memes often come up out of nowhere and often times come from t.v. shows such as SpongeBob SquarePants, it can be difficult to give proper credit to the creator, thus making this directive pretty much a ban on memes.
While hardly anything too important, it does show the kind of dangers of globalism. While the directive isn’t law yet and it needs to be applied to all countries within the Union, the fact that a globalist organization like the E.U. voted in favor of banning what is effectively a form of free speech speaks volumes about the sort of power that they have and the sort of damage they could do. Sure, banning internet memes may not be too big a deal to most people, but it shows that the EU could go farther in restricting free speech in Europe.
But that is a conversation for another time. The main focus of this article is the fact that an “advertisement watchdog” has deemed the Distracted Boyfriend Meme to be sexist when it’s nothing more than a tool for dry humor that’s not meant to cause any sort of emotional or psychological harm to anyone.
But since this is 2018 and everyone gets triggered by everything, we have a company deeming a harmless internet meme “sexist”. Now, this being a watchdog and not a government organization, they can’t really do anything about the meme or to Bahnhof. According to The Local, an English-language news organization in Sweden, “Sweden’s Advertising Ombudsman has guidelines stating that advertisements should not depict women or men as ‘mere sex objects’ or in other ways which are ‘degrading and clearly sexist’. However, the body only has the ability to make judgments on adverts, not impose sanctions.”
So, as it stands, Bahnhof likely won’t be punished for this meme. However, I would not be surprised if someone within the Swedish government were to try to do something to Bahnhof for this. The fact that we live in this day and age where just about anything can be considered sexist leads me to feel that way.
Now, I did mention earlier that the Kavanaugh case would not be entirely out of this article. Well, in the days running up to Ford’s testimony, the GOP had sought that a female attorney who is familiar with sex crimes interview Dr. Ford. Before they had done this, there was speculation from the Left that if the Republicans questioned Ford herself, it would be a “sham hearing” and a set-up. So the GOP got the aforementioned female attorney. The Left’s response? It’s “sexist”.
Yep. You can read these people like a book. I knew that regardless of what the GOP did, whether they interviewed Ford themselves or got someone else to do it, they would be disparaged and attacked by the Left and the media.
Tell me, how is it sexist to ask a female lawyer who is familiar with this sort of case to question the woman making accusations? I imagine if the GOP had hired a male lawyer with similar qualifications, the Left would have called that sexist as well because they would have “gotten a man to do this and we all know that men are pigs and rapists” or some other nonsense.
So it’s sexist if the GOP questions Ford themselves, sexist if they hired a male lawyer to question Ford and sexist if they hired a female lawyer to question Ford? What exactly were they hoping for? A gender-neutral human-dragon hybrid from the planet Krypton? Would that have sufficed the Left’s insanity?
But this is the world we currently live in. Everything anyone does, if they just so happen to disagree with the Left or even happen to use an internet meme that could somehow be considered “politically incorrect”, it is attacked and disparaged as racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic or any combination of all of them.
Similar to the EU’s meme ban, this is the Left’s attempt at restricting freedom of speech and alternative views. Anything that is deemed politically incorrect cannot be allowed on the internet. It must be taken down and the culprit shamed and be made an example of what happens to anyone who dares violate the rules set forth by the Left’s regime of oppression clumsily disguised as liberation.
I recently had a conversation with someone. We talked about a number of things, but primarily about the behavior the Left has been showing not just throughout the Kavanaugh case but throughout these last couple of years. We arrived at the conclusion that the next time the Left takes back power – be it the House, the Senate, the White House or any combination of the three – they would be out for blood. Not just for Trump’s blood (figuratively speaking, but I would not put it past them to try to Mussolini him throughout the D.C. streets) but for anyone who dared defy the Left at any point. We arrived at the conclusion that, if they return to power, they would make conservatives, Christians and Trump supporters everywhere pay for what we have done.
It wouldn’t be quick. We wouldn’t have concentration camps immediately, but I wouldn’t put it past them to do that sort of thing. In the Obama years, we saw a Democrat President dismiss the Constitution as irrelevant in much of what he did, a Democrat Party that backed everything he was doing, a Republican Party too scared to fight back and a Democrat base in love with anything and everything the President did.
So I wouldn’t put it past them to try and effectively destroy or render the Constitution as irrelevant or ineffective. DACA, Obamacare and many other things are already unconstitutional and not many have tried to push back against it, let alone be successful at it. With how rabid and thermonuclear the Left is, should they ever return to power, they will make all of us pay.
They already try to make the case that everything we do and stand for is racist, sexist, balloonist, unicornist etc. and they are the Party that’s OUT of power. Could you imagine a reinvigorated and powerful Democrat Party in Washington? It would effectively be the end of the United States as founded.
Earlier, I made the case that Europe’s meme ban was an infringement on people’s free speech. While largely inconsequential to most people, it does represent the sort of power the EU has. The problem Europe faces is that these people are not elected representatives. They are bureaucrats with too much power that influence too many people in Western civilization.
The advantage we have as a nation is that we elect our representatives. If we believe they are not doing a good job, we can usually kick them out. The problem comes when people don’t think that someone who is doing wrong is doing anything wrong. If the Democrats take back the House or the Senate, that is because we allowed it to happen. As such, we deserve precisely what would come after. As they say, “you get the government you deserve”.
Trump’s election didn’t drive the Left crazy – it exposed their insanity. Having unmasked themselves as the monsters they are, it has become obvious that these people cannot be allowed anywhere near Washington D.C. or any other place of power. Unfortunately, many will see differently. Too many people are either ignoring what is happening or are HAPPY with what is happening.
With Judge Kavanaugh, the Left is happy because this guy is being destroyed not because he did something wrong but because he dared be Trump’s pick for SCOTUS and dares be a threat to the Left. Schumer and others have said as much that there is no presumption of innocence with Kavanaugh. As such, they display they could not care less about the rule of law. Because without presumption of innocence, there is no rule of law. Kavanaugh is guilty just because the Left says so.
That is the sort of carte blanche power the Left believes they have and could possibly have if we are not careful. They think they're ENTITLED to this sort of power.
Regardless, that is all to be discussed next week. Right now, I wanted to point out the ridiculousness of the Left and of the Swedish Advertising Ombudsman at calling anything they don’t like “sexist” or what have you.
It goes back to that Socratic idea of logic vs. ignorance. Unfortunately, it seems the ignorant are plentiful and powerful.

On the 26th and 27th of May, 2017, Europe held the 43rd G7 summit, in which Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the U.K, the U.S. and the European Union discussed multiple things, such as the Paris Climate agreement, the fight on terrorism, and other such issues.
This being the first G7 summit without Obama, the atmosphere was slightly different. And by the end of it, Angela Merkel, as well as other Globalist leaders in the summit were left dissatisfied with it. Here’s the largest reason why: the U.S. didn’t join the consensus on the Paris Climate agreement during the summit. And while that leaves them frustrated, it puts a smile on my face.
The Paris Climate agreement was signed in 2015 in order to deal with the hoax that is climate change and it would begin being financed in the year 2020. With our new president, who knows very well that climate change is nothing but a hoax, he’ll likely withdraw from the agreement that his predecessor Barack Obama put us in (UPDATE: He has actually pulled out of the agreement by this point).
Knowing this, Angela Merkel suggested that the U.S. was no longer a reliable trading partner for Germany, stating: “the times in which we can fully count on others are somewhat over… We Europeans must really take our destiny into our own hands.” To which Trump replied on Twitter with: “We have a MASSIVE trade deficit with Germany, plus they pay FAR LESS than they should on NATO & military. Very bad for U.S. This will change.”
I, for one, don’t really care for countries that are more than okay with destroying themselves and their own culture. What with Germany saying that they took more than 1 million refugees in 2015 that will eventually change Germany into a Muslim country, I don’t particularly care if the U.S. and Germany have trade issues in the future. And while Merkel also said that Germany should try to maintain a friendly relationship with the U.S. as well as the U.K. and Russia, I don’t think we can trust Germany to be much of an ally for us.
But knowing that Merkel said the things she said, and knowing the way the European Union feels about the president, it reassures me that we chose the right guy for the job of POTUS. We know that these people are all Globalists, a word that should now be synonymous with communism or socialism. And if these Globalists aren’t really happy with Trump as president of the U.S. (neither is the Pope, but that’s an article for another day), then we know that Trump was the right person for this job. Not that we didn’t know this before.
And here’s the thing: we now are able to clearly identify the enemy of freedom and liberty in this world. Those who are pro-EU, pro-U.N., such as Merkel and Macron, are easily identified as Globalists since we know that the EU is nothing more than a world-domination-seeking group of people. And if any of these people despise, hate, or merely dislike Trump in any way, we know who’s on our side (the president) and who our enemy is.
I had seen a Facebook post come up on occasion on how the more Trump is attacked by the Left and the MSM, the more we love him. Well, we can add foreign leaders who are Globalists to that list. They all see Trump as a threat to their cause. And it’s because they hate him so much that we love him even more. We know that he’s on our side and he’ll do things that will not only benefit the U.S., but also will slow down the Globalist agenda of world domination through diplomacy. Things such as possibly pulling out of the U.N., and NATO severely weakens those organizations’ cause, because a World Superpower is no longer backing them.
No doubt they will hate the president if and when he does those things. They hate us and they also hate the fact that they NEED us - the most powerful nation on Earth. And they hate the fact that they have to try to work with a man they consider to be unfit for his position. And the fact that they hate him so fervently for all those reasons makes me like him even more.

The media and much of the country has solely been focused on the whole ‘Russian hack’ or ‘Trump-Russia collusion’ stories. Let’s be honest, until Trump leaves the White House, the media will never stop talking about it because they will never be able to prove either of those things happened. And, unless there’s a clear need to talk about it, either due to a new development in the story (created by the media, of course), or another reason, I’d rather focus on a larger and more real issue today: Globalism.
Over the whole of the 20th century, the largest threat to liberty and freedom throughout the world was communism. Don’t get me wrong, it still is. We just have to be able to realize what people are calling it now: Globalism/progressivism. During the Democrat Party Primaries, Bernie Sanders called himself a socialist. He was the first openly socialist candidate to run for president. But here’s the thing: everyone that runs for president in the Democrat Party (and Republican Party, if they’re from the establishment) is a socialist. Hillary said that she wasn’t socialist, but rather ‘progressive’. In reality, they are both the same.
Both aspire to increase the size of the government and replace God with government. Socialists, communists, progressives, liberals, globalists - call them what you will, they all want the same thing: to have unrivaled power and have people under their control. That’s why the Democrat Party fought the North during the Civil War to keep black people as slaves. That’s why the Democrat Party today insists in creating more and more government programs that cripple those with low-income salaries and force those people to be entirely dependent on government ‘assistance’.
The Democrat Party, as ‘progressive’ as they claim to be, hope to repeat the cycle of world history. What I mean by that is, having a country become an empire run by its massive government in which the king, or pharaoh, or emperor, or Caesar is the supreme leader of everyone. That’s why this country is so special. This country was founded a Christian country. Christianity has not only survived, but thrived in this country. And this country has not only survived, but thrived thanks to Christianity. That’s why, even after over 200 years, this country is still capable of electing Reagans and Trumps into the White House.
We know the history of the world. It’s a history of rebellion (against God, mostly), invasion, and destruction. A history of mad kings and evil empires. This country offers its people something no other country in the world has offered before: true freedom. The freedom to be as successful as you can be, provided you put in the effort to accomplish it. Freedom guaranteed by the country’s most basic laws: Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.
But the Left wants that gone. They surely don’t care about life, demonstrated by their desire to encourage women to have as much ‘fun’ as possible without having to worry about a pesky kid. They don’t want anyone other than themselves to have liberty, demonstrated by the fact they fought, died and killed to keep black people as slaves. And they don’t care about people's pursuit of happiness. If someone is living in a nice house, drives a nice car and is genuinely happy (not that material possession means happiness), they think it’s because they stole from the poor or they got those things illegitimately. The Left wants communism, but they can’t flat out come out and say that. Instead, they will say they want ‘Globalism’ because that way, the world is ‘united’.
Don’t let yourself be deceived, Globalism isn’t world unity and world peace. It’s governmental unity. Globalism isn’t about uniting people, it’s about uniting governments, with a governing system above the people. That’s what the U.N. and E.U. are. Ironically enough, the U.N. was created in order to avoid another Hitler rising up and trying to wipe out a whole race of people (*ahem* The UN is cool with Iran *ahem*).
Globalism is the ultimate from of big government. It is based on the communist idea conceived by Soviet Leon Trotsky of global communism. That’s why I’ve said in a previous article that Globalism is about world domination. Though not done through war or bloodshed, Globalism is simply a diplomatic way for a council of people to rule the world.
You know how conspiracy theorists believe in the Illuminati? Well, this would be a real Illuminati, if the Leftists of the world get what they want.
Now, I wish I could tell you something along the lines of “thankfully, God won’t allow such a thing to happen in this world” but I can’t. The Book of Revelation talks about the fact that Satan will rule over the Earth (through a number of beasts) until he’s imprisoned for 1000 years, after which he will be thrown in the lake of fire and sulfur. Every Christian knows that there eventually will come a point in which the Earth is destroyed by God. That there will be a Rapture and a Judgement placed on the whole world. So I can’t tell you that God won’t allow there to be a One World government. The Bible does, after all, speak of an anti-Christ.
However, here’s the important part: It’s ok. Since it’s in the Bible, we know that it’s part of God’s master plan. Those who follow Christ won’t even be taking part in it anyway. Us Christians won’t be present for the Judgement of the world. This world is merely temporary. Heaven awaits those who believe in the Lord Jesus Christ.
“… I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their 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 hands. And they came to life and reigned with Christ for a thousand years.”

As we all know, Emmanuel Macron won the French presidential election of 2017. This man was the socialist champion for the American Left, running against someone who is essentially the female version of Trump (as much as that is possible knowing how many socialists there are in France anyway). The Left is super ecstatic over this win, but not because Macron won. More so, because Le Pen lost.
Bernie Sanders tweeted “Congratulations to the people of France who today, by an overwhelming vote, rejected racism and xenophobia.” Crazy Bernie sees the election results and the first thing he says isn’t a congratulatory message to the winner, but a message to the people of France for beating what leftists consider “racism and xenophobia”. Macron doesn’t matter to them, all that matters is that the right-wing candidate lost. Because they really needed a win, and they really wanted it to be against Trump, so this will have to do.
The Left will probably make this whole thing to be a far bigger deal than it really is. They will likely talk about it for about a week and then stop covering it and basically forget about it. Meanwhile, it’s been half a year since Trump destroyed Hillary and they’re still recovering from that.
France, unlike the U.S., is not a super power in the world. It has little to do around the world. This election won’t affect the world so much, unless it pulls out of the E.U., which, thanks to this new president, they definitely won’t. But to the Left, this is almost equal to Hillary beating Trump. They really want to savor this small victory for as long as they possibly can until they return to being completely miserable and reminded that they lost to a candidate they considered to be an absolute joke.
But looking directly at France, I have to say, I feel sorry for these people. They, by making this terrible mistake, have voted for the same socialist policies that they despised from the previous president. The previous president of France had a 4% approval rating by the end of 2016, which explains why he didn’t run again. The French clearly disliked what he has done, but were deceived into voting for more of it with Macron. Macron isn’t of the Socialist party, unlike the outgoing president. Macron founded his own party: En Marche! Which translates to Forward! By the name of the party, you can tell that he’s a progressive, which means he’s a socialist.
Now, here’s the thing: France isn’t America. France wasn’t founded on the principle of freedom from oppression and persecution for Christian beliefs. Much like the Spaniards and British, the French were conquerors in the American continent. They were trying to accomplish the same thing as the Brits and Spaniards: conquering America. France is no different from other European countries, in that it was founded centuries and centuries ago. America’s founding was special. Being founded under Christian beliefs and building a government of the people, by the people and for the people, and maintain it for this long is special.
Therefore, France is not as likely to elect a Trump-like candidate, or even a Reagan-like candidate. There just aren’t any. France has lived under socialism for quite a while now, not just since this president (Macron) or the previous. From absolute monarchy to emperorship to socialism, France has no experience with small government like we do.
But the fact of the matter remains: Macron was the worse candidate for France. Unlike Le Pen, he is more than happy to keep France in the Globalist, world-domination-seeking European Union. Macron was the Obama-like candidate in this race and Le Pen was the almost-Trump-like candidate (again, hard to have someone be like Trump in issues when they were brought up in different cultures and countries).
The people of France have voted for more terrorism and less security in their country, without them knowing it (that's were the deception part comes into play). I pray that they stay safe as the inevitable waves of terrorism are bound to hit them and I also pray that they open their eyes and see that progressives and socialists are evil people that don’t care about their citizens’ lives.
I encourage the people of France that voted for Le Pen to read and reflect on the following Bible verse:
“Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.”
