  • New York City's Holocaust Museum BANS Florida Governor Ron DeSantis from speaking at event because he 'doesn't align with their values'

    05/09/2022 11:43:55 AM PDT · by algore · 29 replies
    Abrams and Eric Cohen wrote in the Wall Street Journal: 'We were working closely with the museum on the details for the June 12 event, until, out of the blue, we were told by the museum staff that Mr. DeSantis didn't 'align with the museum's values and its message of inclusivity.' They added: 'Either we disinvite the governor, they said, or our event was unwelcome.' But the museum were quick to dispute the claims, posting a scathing thread about the discussions on Twitter. They said: 'Let us be clear: No one was banned or cancelled. No contract with the Tikvah...

    There was a time not long ago when even the most based conservative was willing to live and let live with all manner of divergent and bizarre people, but live and let live has become “I live and you submit” and that’s just not going to work out in the long run. The tolerant have been rewarded for their tolerance with intolerance, and if you look, you can already see the backlash brewing. The breaking point may have been when the man who won the women’s swimming championship and all the smart, moral people of our garbage elite demanded we...

    The media continues to downplay mass inflation in today’s economy, including New York Times columnist David Brooks, who encouraged a "white-hot economy" and said he has a "high tolerance" for inflation. "I want a white-hot economy," he said. "I want a white-hot economy that will raise wages at the bottom, which is happening, that will bring people back into the labor force, which is happening, which is spreading wealth around the country and not concentrating in a few cities."

    One of the pro-LGBT activists quipped ‘Hail Satan,’ while others blew rape alarms in the ears of those praying.DUBLIN, Ireland (LifeSiteNews) — As Irish Catholics took to the streets once more to pray the rosary in reparation for a pro-homosexual “Pride” parade, they faced constant heckling and abusive language from the pro-LGBT crowd, including a shouted of “Hail Satan.” The Irish Society for Christian Civilisation (ISFCC) took part in a public rosary rally in Omagh, Co. Tyrone, organized by local activist Gerry McGeough, to make reparation for the pro-LGBT “Pride” parade taking place that day in the town, September 25....

    Dorian Abbot is an associate professor in the Department of the Geophysical Sciences at the University of Chicago. He spends his days studying climate change and extrasolar planets. In a piece written for Bari Weiss’ Substack, Abbot says he’s never been particularly political. He uses an online tool to decide who to vote for. But a few years ago he began to have concerns about academic freedom. He says he mostly kept his thoughts to himself for several years but that changed last summer. In the fall of 2020 I started advocating openly for academic freedom and merit-based evaluations. I...
  • Diversity Is Not Our Strength — And The Lie Is Deliberate

    The Federalist ^ | AUGUST 17, 2021 | Christopher Bedford
    Far from a strength, diversity in and of itself is at best a feature, and more often a weakness.. “Diversity is our strength.” You’ve heard it over and over again, and it seems simple enough. It doesn’t matter if it’s not true; it’s a basic feel-goodism — the kind of phrase that adorns the kitschy signs Bed Bath and Beyond sells for people to hang in their kitchen. A “live, laugh, love” sort of thing. If only. Rather, in America today, “Diversity is our strength” is a commanding ethos: It governs the minds of the Joint Chiefs, it informs the...
  • You Can't Be Friends with Conservatives?

    One of the most obvious misconceptions about liberals today is that they personify tolerance. The Oxford English Dictionary defines tolerance as "the ability or willingness to tolerate something, in particular the existence of opinions or behavior that one does not necessarily agree with. A recent poll by the Survey Center on American Life at the American Enterprise Institute found that Democrats are twice as likely as Republicans to report ending a friendship over a political disagreement (20% versus 10%). Liberals are also "far more likely than conservatives are to say they are no longer friends with someone due to political...

    I finished Part II of this "thinking out loud"-style series by suggesting two things. The first was that the Wokist devastation of our society suggests our society's original rules set the boundaries of tolerance too far apart. The space thereby created allowed this ruthlessly intolerant, totalitarian ideology to take root and spread. As predicted by Karl Popper's Paradox of Tolerance, Wokism is now exterminating the very tolerance which allowed it to thrive in the first place. It permits no other rival ideologies. It is our own Islamic fundamentalism. The second thing I suggested was that too much tolerance not only...

    I finished part one of this series by mentioning an even deeper level to our current predicament. I want to get to that, but first, I want to set that discussion up a bit more. I begin with this statement: Wokism is now the official state religion of the United States of America. By constitutional standards, this means something has gone wrong. The United States isn't supposed to have a state religion. The First Amendment specifically prohibits the establishment of a state religion. Yet it now has one, and its name is Wokism. Fuss about my characterization if you want—it...

    Authorities in Germany managed to take down one of the world's biggest child sex abuse platforms following a large-scale investigation which led to several arrests in mid-April, a police statement confirmed on Monday. The platform "Boystown" was active since at least June 2019 and had a membership of over 400,000. It was only accessible via the so-called darknet. Four German citizens between the ages of 40 and 64 were detained in relation to the case, three on suspicion of working as administrators for the platform — one of whom was arrested in Paraguay. Another man was taken in under suspicion...

    There’s a meme circulating on social media that goes like this… If you catch 100 red fire ants as well as 100 large black ants, and put them in a jar, at first, nothing will happen. However, if you violently shake the jar and dump them back on the ground the ants will fight until they eventually kill each other. The thing is, the red ants think the black ants are the enemy and vice versa, when in reality, the real enemy is the person who shook the jar. This is exactly what’s happening in society today. Liberal vs. Conservative....

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Wednesday criticized Senate Republicans, and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) specifically, for blocking Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer’s (D-NY) request for unanimous consent on approving $2,000 stimulus checks for the American people, contending the Senate GOP possesses “an endless tolerance for other people’s sadness.” McConnell, Pelosi told reporters, is standing as an “obstruction” to providing direct relief to the American people following his move to block Democrat efforts for quick approval of raising individual stimulus checks from $600 to $2,000.

    As we have witnessed in recent times, some groups have lawlessly removed from American streets and public buildings any vestiges of our history as well as religious symbols in general, Christianity in particular. The perpetrators hide behind masks and hide behind terms such as "social justice” and “diversity." They claim to be champions of protecting people of different minor faiths. As a non-religious person, I have lived in Christian America all my life. I have never felt anything less than welcomed from the time I could first formulate coherent and lasting thoughts to this day. Growing PainsI have visited 46...

Others are calling for banning those “complicit” from college campuses while still others are demanding a “Truth and Reconciliation Commission” to “hold Trump and his enablers accountable for the crimes they have committed.” Now, Daily Beast editor-at-large Rick Wilson has added his own call for “humiliation,” “incarceration” and even ritualistic suicides for Trump supporters in...

    No, there isn’t any sign the Church has learned from the McCarrick case The feeling is that one person has been made to pay so others may just continue along their way. The McCarrick Report reveals a substantial degree of tolerance towards homosexual conduct by the clergy, which is punished only if minors are the persons abused. This report also ignores the fact that the McCarrick case is only the tip of the iceberg of a power system controlled by the gay lobby. Whether it is a “truth operation” as announced, or a “surreal operation of mystification” as immediately defined...

    King Charles II and the British passed the Conventicle Act of 1664, making it illegal to hold church meetings of over five people. It prohibited "... more than five persons in addition to members of the family, for any religious purpose not according to the rules of the Church of England." The word "conventicle" is derived from the word "convenant" and referred to gatherings of church members according to Jesus' promise in Matthew 18:20, "Where two or three are met together in my name." The English Book of Canon Law, Article 11, stated: "All conventicles and secret meetings ... have...

Cecilia Loving, the department’s chief diversity and inclusion officer, is defending a decision to kick Lt. Daniel McWilliams — one of three firefighters in the iconic 9/11 Ground Zero flag-raising photo — off a color-guard procession so it would be all-black. Loving testified at a state Divsion of Human Rights trial on McWilliam’s complaint that he was the victim of racial bias. When McWilliams showed up at a 2017 memorial mass to honor deceased members of...

    Virginia kindergarten students will learn about institutional racism alongside the alphabet, according to a new curriculum created for the upcoming school year. Loudoun County is adding "social justice" to the mission of teaching elementary school students reading, writing, and arithmetic. The Washington, D.C., suburb—the richest county in the country—has teamed up with the Southern Poverty Law Center's (SPLC) education arm Teaching Tolerance to develop its new curriculum. The proposed lesson plan will restructure history and social studies classes to emphasize slavery as fundamental to American society for students from kindergarten to the fifth grade. "Sugarcoating or ignoring slavery until later...

    Teachers in Virginia's largest school district have developed a new "anti-racist" and "culturally responsible" curriculum that will be available to students as early as this fall. Social studies teachers from Fairfax County collaborated with other Virginia public school teachers to revamp their history curriculum, using a framework from Teaching Tolerance, the educational arm of the liberal nonprofit Southern Poverty Law Center. The new curriculum encourages students to "examine materials, events, and institutions critically attending to power, position, and bias" and will be available for use in 3rd, 4th, 6th, 7th, and 11th-grade classrooms.
