  • The history erasers: First they came for the Confederate monuments

    08/22/2017 12:35:54 PM PDT · by Liberty7732 · 31 replies
    It’s a story as old as civilizations passing away, history looping without end… First they came for the Confederate monuments, because they represented those who fought to maintain slavery. Then they came for Confederate flags, because banning them would alleviate the hurt of slavery they represented. Then they came for Confederate names on buildings, on schools and on streets. That which causes offense is not acceptable in our society. Then they came for the history textbooks, which were revised to avoid causing pain to students confronted with the ugly past in their own country. How could the children endure this?...
  • Protesters On Replicas Of Christopher Columbus Ships: Those Are Black Ships Of Death

    Forget Lincoln, forget Confederate generals, and forget former Supreme Court justices—it’s Christopher Columbus’ turn to be put in the crosshairs of the progressive left. Replicas of the Niña and the Pinta, two of the three ships that sailed with Columbus to the new world, sailed into Traverse City, Michigan, where they were met with protests, some calling them “black ships of death,” while others saying the ships represent nothing but genocide. So, even learning about the discovery of the new world is racist, especially if it’s not done through the revisionist lens of progressives—only they can really teach our true...
  • Abraham Lincoln Monument Torched In Chicago

    Abraham Lincoln has joined George Washington on the list of those targeted by Chicagoans in a national debate over Civil War-era monuments. Alderman Raymond Lopez took to Facebook Wednesday night to decry a defaced statue of the nation’s 16th president in the Englewood neighborhood. The giant bust appears to have been damaged after someone in the 15th Ward sprayed and ignited a flammable liquid. “What an absolute disgraceful act of vandalism. This bust of Abraham Lincoln, erected by Phil Bloomquist on August 31, 1926, was damaged & burned,” Mr. Lopez wrote, a local NBC affiliate reported. “If anyone has any...

Thompson is now one of four people as of Wednesday afternoon who have been arrested for damaging the monument, a move that many are calling out as unjust.

    The Guardian published a cartoon on Thursday claiming there “unfortunately” isn’t “a plan to eradicate white people from the Earth.” In the Guardian‘s “First Dog on the Moon” cartoon, which was titled “‘Will even white people die?’ How to explain nuclear war to your kids,” two dogs can be seen discussing Donald Trump, North Korea, and Steve Bannon. After one of the dogs claims that “white supremacists” are in the White House, Dog 2 asks whether “there is a plan to eradicate white people from the Earth,” prompting Dog 1 to reply, “Unfortunately no.” The two dogs then engage in...

Mike Holmes, 72, is one of ten volunteers at Felbrigg Hall facing relegation to back-office tasks for refusing to wear the badges. “There’s a group of about ten of us that have volunteered for more than ten years, and we have now been told that if we don’t toe the...

    The wars between Trump, the media, the deep state, and the progressive party — replete with charges and counter-charges of scandal, collusion, and corruption — are merely symptoms of a much larger fundamental and growing divide between Americans that is reaching a dangerous climax. ...... we are engaged in yet a fifth revolutionary divide, similar to, but often unlike, prior upheavals. The consequences of globalization, the growth of the deep state, changing demographics, open borders, the rise of a geographic apartheid between blue and red states, and the institutionalization of a permanent coastal political and culture elite — and the...

    Teen Vogue, a publication designed for kids, published an article this week about the wonders of anal sex. I won’t provide a link. You can look it up for yourself. But don’t. “A Guide to Anal Sex,” goes the headline. “How to do it the RIGHT way.” I confess that I didn’t read the entire piece, but I can report that it is quite lengthy, and it goes into extremely specific detail. Whether you want to try sodomy with a girl or a boy, the article, written by a sad pervert named Gigi Engle, outlines the procedure and gives some...

    Transgender and gender-nonconforming employees will receive greater and more explicit protections this week as new California employment regulations take effect Saturday. But some worry the new regulations might put employers in a difficult place: wanting to do right by their employees and follow the law, but lacking the resources — and the training — to do so. That’s why state Sen. Ricardo Lara, D-Bell Gardens (Los Angeles County), gutted his own higher education bill to put forth a new proposal that would institute mandatory workplace training around gender identity and expression in the same way that sexual-harassment training is required...

    On Tuesday, a statue of the Ten Commandments was installed at the Arkansas Capitol grounds. Less than a day later, it had been run over by a car and destroyed. Michael Reed, a 32-year-old from Van Buren, Arkansas with a history of mental illness, recorded himself ramming his car into the monument, shouting "freedom" shortly before impact. Reed has previously been accused of destroying a similar Ten Commandments monument in Oklahoma.

    [I]t is important to point out that the popular image both of Angela Merkel and of modern Germany is deeply flawed. Because far from representing a negation -- or a misguided attempt at negation -- of past German policies and attitudes, the modern German mentality is in many ways a mutation or an update of the same mentality that has guided Germany since the eighteenth century, and especially since the unification of the country in 1870. Let us begin with the more obvious parallel: German support for further European integration. Despite all the German talk about subordinating narrow national interests...

    Are We Approaching the End Game? by Emmet Scott It is becoming more apparent by the day that the end game, in Europe at least, is now imminent. Things cannot go on like this much longer. Something has to give, and soon. To all appearances, what we have come to know as “European Civilization” is doomed. The proximate cause of this, however, is not the mass colonization of Western Europe which has stepped up several gears in the past two years. Not is it primarily the chaos, lawlessness and terrorism which these colonists have brought with them. These things are...

    A pro-immigration advocate says the hard-hit mostly white working-class communities in the United States must be wheeled into “political hospice care,” and a Washington Post columnist commended his solution “as a way forward.” “Economic dislocation and demographic changes are fueling discomfort and desperation among white working-class voters,” wrote WashPo columnist and editorial board member Jonathan Capehart, continuing: While [university professor and author] Justin Gest says that both Republicans and Democrats have exploited these voters, he sees a way forward. “The only way of addressing their plight is a form of political hospice care,” [Gest] said. “These are communities that are on the...

    The science-deniers are running the LGBTQ show over at the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS), and dissenters will not be tolerated. The department’s new “enhanced” policies promoting the “well-being of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer/Questioning (LGBTQ) children and youth in the Department’s care” ratchet in one direction only: encouraging children towards LGBTQ identities. DCFS has drawn a rainbow-colored line in the sand, announcing it “will not tolerate exposing LGBTQ children and youth to staff/providers who are not supportive of children and youths’ right to self-determination of sexual/gender identity.”

    Workers have begun to dismantle the statue of a Greek goddess from Bangladesh's Supreme Court complex, after an outcry from Islamists. The sculpture of Themis - the goddess of justice - wearing a sari was less than six months old, but Islamist groups demanded its removal by Friday. They claimed it hurt the religious sentiments of Muslims and it prompted mass protests in the capital, Dhaka. PM Sheikh Hasina agreed to its removal, but secular groups opposed it.

The circus gave the final performance of "The Greatest Show on Earth" to a sold-out crowd at Nassau Coliseum, showing off its death-defying stunts and exotic animals for the last time after 146 years.

    Cussing their way back into power, two middle fingers at a time.: At the increasingly profane Democrat Party’s annual convention in California, the 84 year-old outgoing state party chairman, some guy named John Burton, closed out the proceedings by sticking both middle fingers in the air and leading gleeful party members in the chant of “F*** Donald Trump! F*** Donald Trump!” The fake national news media largely ignored the incident. Try to imagine the fake media outrage that would ensue if a state GOP party chair led a GOP convention in a chant of “F*** Barack Obama!”, or “F*** Hillary...
