Freedom to Go 'n Grow Together in Christ
Oct 2019- Dec 2020
(12/28/2020) Professor asserts black votes should count twice. It disturbs me that academia can spew out such nonsense as this and there are no checks and balances. Almost not one is academia is willing to stand up and call it for the nonsense that it is. Why? They may be risking their jobs. Academia is on a downward death spiral. At least I hope it dies. Seeking truth and wisdom and facts and knowledge are no longer the objectives of academia. Pushing the progressive narrative through indoctrination and intimidation is the objective. And nothing that pushes that objective is too absurd to gain the full acceptance and support (or at least no push back) from fellow academicians. In many fields, the incompetent will be weeded out. In academia, they get promoted and gain tenure. Taxpayers should not be subsidizing this, yet we are.
(12/27/2020) Warnock’s gospel of hate. Rest assured, whatever the Democrats accuse conservatives of, the Democrats are 100% guilty of whether or not conservatives are. There are far, far more examples of hate doming from the Left than from the Right, but far more accusations of hate being directed at the Right.
(12/27/2020 Floodgates Opening? Student sues over Critical Race Training at Nevada public charter school. I'm not a fan of lawsuits, but the Left has been using them to great effect for a long time. It really is time to be fighting back. CRT is nothing but a tool to indoctrinate people in a lie. It is harmful to individuals and it is harmful to the country.
(12/27/2020) We missed our annual reminder that ‘Merry Christmas’ is white supremacy culture at work. The nonsense being spewed by supposedly mature adults is a condemnation of our education system. We are producing (and have produced) masses of emotional and intellectual infants.
(12/16/2020) San Diego Unified School District holds ‘white privilege’ training sessions for teachers. The Left indoctrinates people in their (false) narratives using public funds and pubic employees. Can you imagine the media outrage if the Right tried to do the same?
(11/23/2020) The war on standards: Magnet school admissions edition. In my first job coming out of grad school way back in 1976, there was an assumption that blacks were an affirmative action hire. Some were and some weren't, but those that weren't had to work hard to overcome the impression that they were. Why the assumption? Because blacks were held to a lower standard. Things have actually gotten worse since then. And it is the most capable blacks, the ones who didn't rely on the lower standards, who suffer most.
(11/21/2020) Critical Race Theory Threatens the Core of American Freedom. True. When people are judged based on group identity rather than their identity as individuals, nothing but trouble can follow. And we have many who now advocate going beyond mere judging. Funny how CRT advocates push for all sorts of benefits for the so-called oppressed while said "oppressed" need do nothing in return.
(11/19/2020) Cracker Barrel Apologizes For Racist ‘Noose’ In One Of Its Restaurants. It Was Just A Cord For A Soldering Iron. It is bad when people fail to apologize when an apology is warranted. It is worse to apologize when no apology is even remotely warranted. We are encouraging people to be perpetually offended by nothing at all because we are rewarding them. Don't be suckered in to this nonsense.
(11/18/2020) ‘They Sailed Up Out Of The Infinite’: An Introduction To The 1620 Project. The Left is happy to re-write history to support their current narrative, a la the 1619 "project." Don't be suckered into it. The truth - actual history - teaches us truth and is far more inspiring.
(11/18/2020) Correct Diagnostics Needed. You would think this would be obvious, but you would be wrong. If the correct diagnosis is not politically correct, we won't treat the actual problem. We will treat a problem that does not exist, making the actual problem worse and worse. What is the incorrect diagnosis? That problems in the black community are a result of racism rather than the result of a dysfunctional family structure and holding blacks to much lower standards than others.
(09/23/2020) Iowa State prof forbids students to disagree with BLM, abortion. University takes action. Note that this is an English class and the students are not to disagree with her concerning abortion, same sex marriage and Black Lives Matter. Of course, the "action" just amounts to modifying the syllabus and lecturing the professor about the First Amendment.
(09/05/2020) First the bad news: Obscene federal ‘diversity training’ scam prospers — even under Trump. Now the good news: Trump Deserves Re-Election For This Alone (banning federal funds to be used to indoctrinate federal employees in critical race theory and other 'diversity' scams). For decades, the Left has used federal taxes to fund all sort of left-wing training, indoctrination, promotion and propaganda. And just look at the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, to say nothing of our public schools. It is about time we fought back.
(09/03/2020) If you thought BLM was stoking a race war, wait until you hear Biden’s speech. The Left will be happy to destroy our nation if it helps them regain power. In fact, both are their goals: regain power and destroy the nation. Then they hope to rebuild America in their own image. One catch: destroying is a lot easier than building. When they destroy, they are also destroying the builders.
(09/02/2020) Critical Race Theory and the war on standards. Good article, especially if you don't know the history of CRT. Note that if whites do that which is necessary to succeed, it is white privilege. If blacks fail to do what is necessary to succeed, it is because of racism. How can the problems in the black community ever be addressed if this is the premise? They cannot. In fact, they can only get worse.
(08/31/2020) ‘In Defense of Looting’ Author Says the Value of Small Businesses Is a 'Right-Wing Myth.' It cannot be overemphasized: for the Left, narratives based on lies and deceit "trump" facts and reality. And when decisions and policies are based on lies and deceit, they are invariably bad.
(08/31/2020) Voters condemn Trump for racist comments — then learn Biden actually made those comments. But aren't so learning, they still plan to vote for Biden. They have already made up their minds that Trump is a racist and Biden is not. Why, all sensible people knows this to be true!! All contrary evidence, no matter how overwhelming, is to be ignored. This is the great danger to ourselves, to our country, to the world. Many a narrative is built and promoted based on lies, deceit, misrepresentations, out of context quotes and more. And once accepted by the gullible, they can be extremely difficult to dislodge. Note that no one claimed that Trump was a racist until he decided to run for president as a Republican. Why? Because there was (and is) no such evidence. But the endlessly repeated narrative is now that he is a racist, white supremacist. The actual evidence is quite to the contrary. Why do so many buy into it when they never would have done so prior to 2016? Because an assumption in their worldview is that Republicans are racists. As soon as Trump declared himself a Republican, that for which there is no evidence became blindingly obvious to those for whom truth and reality are no longer of value.
(08/28/2020) Juvenile detention officer suspended for 'racist' post about fatal shooting of 5-year-old Cannon Hinnant: 'Should've ducked.'
(08/26/2020) The BLM Mob Doesn’t Just Want You To Raise Your Fist, It Wants To Rule You. What I find most disturbing is the fact that almost all the diners raised their fists in solidarity. If you want to make a valid comparison to Nazi Germany, this behavior qualifies 100%.
(08/20/2020) Schools in Vermont District Ordered to Fly Black Lives Matter Flags.
(08/19/2020) Presbyterian Church Posts Racism Against White People: ‘White People Get to Settle and Colonize, Take and Own and Sell Human Lives.’ Specifically, this is a PCUSA church, which doesn't surprise me at all. I suppose it woudn't matter to them to point out that plenty of non-white people have done all those things and some are still doing it today!
(08/19/2020) Where Black Lives Matter Rioters Learned To Call Looting ‘Reparations’. Our schools and media may do a terrible job teaching good values and critical thinking skills, but the ability to self-justify is stronger than ever.
(08/15/2020) Mainstream media's silence on the horrific murder of 5-year-old Cannon Hinnant sparks Twitter hashtag #SayHisName. How do we get the false notion that blacks are disproportionately targeted by police, and that "hate" crimes are committed by whites against blacks but not vice versa? Simply by suppressing all stories that provide evidence contrary to the false narrative. Of major news organs, only Fox News has covered this story. None of the other networks, none of the major newspapers.
(08/14/2020) Math Professor: The '2+2=4 Trope ... Reeks of White Supremacist Patriarchy.' Academia should actually punish people for nonsense like this. They should not have a job teaching our kids and youth and literally corrupting them with nonsense like this. Instead, they are taken seriously by people who should know better and rewarded with high paying jobs. Our culture has a lot of problems. This is a big one.
(08/01/2020) Ocasio-Cortez Refers to St. Father Damien Who Served Lepers and Died of Leprosy as “White Supremacist Culture.” Yes, we have reached the point where good is declared to be evil and evil to be good.
(07/26/2020) Jemele Hill says all Trump voters are racists, and there's 'no wiggle room.' Her mother voted for Trump. Suppose we have a societal objective, and that objective is to improve race relations in America. Is this sort of statement going to help? Of course not! Just the opposite. Conclusion: Jemele Hill and a huge portion of the Democrat party (she is hardly alone is statements like this) are not interested in improving race relations. They find it highly profitable, both personally and politically, to make race relations worse - and that is exactly what they are doing.
(07/16/2020) Obama DOD Started 'Indoctrinating Our Troops' on Racism and 'Privilege,' New Docs Show. I don't think that it is a coincidence that pretty much all the indoctrination was / is totally contrary to Scripture.
(07/15/2020) Christian University Expels Student for Posting Videos Critical of Black Lives Matter. It is bad enough that our colleges and universities are indoctrinating rather than teaching. Now they are expelling students for "wrongthink." This from a supposedly Christian school? Are there any genuinely Christian universities left? Not many!
(07/11/2020) What’s Wrong With Critical Race Theory? The short answer is everything.
(07/10/2020) Black Lives Matter protests claim two more lives over the weekend. There are two kinds of killings from the perspective of the media. The right kind, which they will cover, and the wrong kind, which they will not. These are the wrong kind.
(07/09/2020) 19 Points of Racial Unity that Lead to Solutions. Not a bad article, actually.
(07/09/2020) Black Lives Matter Was Violent From The Start, And Media And Politicians Knew It. Of course. But the objectives of the ploiticians and the media have nothing to do with what is best for the country - it has everything to do with what they think is best for themselves.
(07/08/2020) Hate Hoax: Oregon Politico Jonathan Lopez Admits He Wrote Racist Letter to Himself. Some are proclaiming America to be the most racist it has ever been. Meanwhile, since there is such a shortage of racist incidents, almost all such "incidents" are hoaxes. Two questions: Why do race mongers ignore this reality? Because they are race mongers. And why do people feel the need to make up racist incidents against themselves? For attention? To feel like the victim they want themselves to be? For narrative and political gain? Whatever, it is sick and it is destrutive and it is evil. I cannot think of a single "racist" incident in the news that was real - they are all hoaxes or figments of someone's imagination (Bubba Wallace and other "noose" incidents). We should be rejoicing that we have almost no genuine racist incidents and instead we are told that even though they are fake, we need to use them to come to grips with our racist selves. Disgraceful, but then there is an awful lot of disgraceful stuff going on right now.
(07/01/2020) The Source of BLM's Super-power. The fact is the Black Lives Matter is a Marxist organization whose objective is to destroy America. Why are so many giving in to its demands? Corporations have forked over $400 million to them. Even if not torn down, statues are being removed at their demand, and places renamed. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton must be jealous since their shakedown operations were nothing compared to BLM. This article makes the case that it is our mainstream media that is giving them this power. I'll add that white guilt, something that is totally uncalled for, is another contributing factor.
(06/30/2020) The Present Moment Has Set Blacks Back a Half-Century. Well, in some ways blacks (and race relations, in general) are much better than they were 50 years ago. But in other ways they are far worse. And sadly, it is in the interest of the Democrat Party to make race relations as bad as possible. They are working hard at it and for now, they are succeeding. Disgusting. Do not join the bandwagon of mea culpas and apologies for non-existent racism. Some racism still exists, but there are very few racists. Don't play their game and distract from the real issues - high crime in black neighborhoods, fatherless families, gangs and black on black homicide. Most of the places where blacks are the worst off have been run by Democrats (many of them black) for decades. Instead of helping blacks, they work hard to instill the culture of victimhood throughout the black community. Democrats prosper at the expense of blacks.
(06/30/2020) The Deep State, Elites and Democrats are Pushing a ‘Color Revolution’ on the American People But the Target is American Freedom. I'll settle for saying that the Left has taken over critical institutions - specifically academia - and have been wildly successful in creating mindless robots willing and able to carry out their commands. To harsh? Maybe, but probably not.
(06/29/2020) Pharrell Williams Calls for Paid Juneteenth Holiday, Reparations — ‘We Deserve That, You Know?’ Actually, the blacks who deserve reparations the most are the ones who need it the least - the ones who did all the right things and made a success of their lives, ignoring the excuses of "racism" and "slavery."
(06/28/2020) “Black Lives Matter is a Mandate – Pay Us What You Owe Us” – Top Democrat Demands Reparations. I don't think she qualifies as a "top" Democrat, but she is in Congress. Amazing how people who were never slaves, most of whom have never lived under Jim Crow, are demanding money from those who never owned slaves and never committed a racist act. Of countries that are genuinely mixed race, America is almost certainly the least racist of all! The lure of "free" money intoxicates, however. Very few that receive such largess will use it wisely, and the situation with black families and black crime will not change one iota as a result.
(06/28/2020) Why America Keeps Falling for Hate Crime Hoaxes. Because it serves the false narrative that America is a racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic and Islamophobic country and the MSM and the Democrats are happy to push that narrative even if they have to base it on lies and deceit. And no, "America doesn't fall for them, only the Democrats and the Left.
(06/25/2020) Christians Don’t Need The Black Lives Matter Movement To Defeat Evil. We not only don't need it, we need to reject it in its entirety. It has nothing to do with improving the lives of blacks nor with improving race relations.
(06/25/2020) BLM and the “Village”. Good article.
(06/24/2020) In Defense of “All Lives Matter.” The whole premise behind Black Lives Matter is to divide our nation based on race; it is to throw away all the progress we have made as a nation and replace it with political gain for one party. For shame.
(06/22/2020) My Kids’ Public School Held A Workshop Teaching The Police Are Racists. Conservatives do not push politics in their jobs. Progressives do it all the time and it is doubly bad because almost all of progressive politics are based on lies.
(06/21/2020) VP for Research at Michigan State U. Forced to Resign After Blog Posts Deemed ‘Racist’. Doesn't the tolerance of the Left impress you? If only we conservatives were as tolerant as they.
(06/20/2020) Planned Parenthood Calls Pro-Lifers White Supremacists, But It Kills 247 Black Babies Every Day.
(06/20/2020) Local Philly Residents – Black And White – Stand Guard Over Target Store – Chant “Four More Years” And “USA! USA!” They are also cleaning up. Gee, where have I seen that before? Not from the Left, that is certain.
(06/14/2020) Blacks’ White Problem. Excellent article. In short, life was rapidly improving for blacks when they were legally discriminated against. Since we've been "helping" them, not so much.
(06/13/2020) It Has Been Decided that Trump's 'Juneteenth' Rally in Tulsa Is 'Racist.' Trump was never considered racist before becoming the GOP nominee for president. Quite the opposite since he was honored by the Civil Rights community on multiple occasions. According to the Left, all conservatives are racist. No evidence is required. This is from people who treat blacks (and others) as anything but equal.
(06/13/2020) NBC's Craig Melvin asks Sen. Tim Scott if GOP is 'using' him as 'token.' Why not ask any of the Democrats why so many cities run by them for decades are such cesspits? It is a far more relevant question.
(06/12/2020) Do Black Lives Matter? Of course they do. But do they actually matter to most of the people currently marching in the streets, black or white? The answer is "no," and if you are not already aware of this, this article explains why.
(06/08/2020) Former Police Officer Delivers Incredible Response To Black Lives Matter Protesters And “Virtue Signaling” White People. The fact is, the "protestors" and the pontificators are doing far more harm than good.
(06/04/2020) ‘Racism is not dead. But it’s on life-support’: Thomas Sowell drops one helluva TRUTH-BOMB on Democrats about racism. In large part, racism still exists because it is in the interests of the Democrat party to keep it alive. So rather than trying to ease tensions, most Democrat politicians are gleefully throwing fuel on the fire and making things much worse.
(06/04/2020) Teens At Maryland Fair Fatally Punch, Spit On Man After Demanding Dollar. Black teens, white victim. Of course you haven't heard about it, but if the races were reversed, you most definitely would have. Here is the problem: when we try to address issues and problems that face us and we are provided false and incomplete information, we are going to make bad decisions. And that is what is happening in America right now: we are being given a lot of false information and a lot of important information is not being provided to us at all. Our MSM is truly a fount of fake news (and no news at all, when it doesn't suit them). Full disclosure of actual facts would show that whites are in much more danger from blacks than vice versa. And blacks themselves are in much greater danger from other blacks - one of the most uncovered stories of the last few decades.
(06/02/2020) The Left Couldn't Care Less About Blacks. Absolutely true.
(06/02/2020) In search of the elusive white nationalist. The Democrats are desperate to blame all this chaos on "white supremacists" and the like. So they just make stuff up, lie their heads off, and most of the MSM goes along with them. What is appalling is that this guy was beaten, but it was he that was arrested, not the people who beat him! And it gets worse. Not only is he not a white nationalist, not only is he not a racist, he is the exact opposite: That elusive white supremacist (not). A large number of people in this country are behaving disgracefully, and it isn't just the rioters.
(05/25/2020) ‘On this Memorial Day, we give thanks …’ Ted Cruz takes the NYT to the SHED for op-ed accusing U.S. Military of celebrating white supremacy. It is bad enough that the Left injects race into political campaigns. What is far worse is that they inject race into everything. You would think that Memorial Day should be immune from racial political slander, but you would be wrong.
(05/20/2020) Clarence Thomas Isn’t A ‘Symbol Of The Trump Era.’ He’s An American Icon. I've been a Clarence Thomas fan since he was appointed to the EEOC way back when. The Court may be getting more conservative, but Thomas is definitely the Justice most faithful to the Constitution.
(05/20/2020) Dear GOP: Stop Cowering Before Bad-Faith Race Card Attacks. We aren't racists and such cowering simply reinforces the notion that we are and are trying to cover it up. Much of what the Democrats scream is racist is, in fact, the exact opposite: treating blacks just like we treat everyone else.
(05/04/2020) One Christian’s Response to Racism. Good column, food for thought. Don't get hustled by the race hustlers.
(12/15/2019) Nature Magazine Jumps the Shark. Apparently, using the term "supremacy" in the context of quantum computing is "racist." I have to presume that using "supremacy" in the context of anything now qualifies as "racist." Did anyone think that people could sink to such a level of stupidity? We have totally destroyed the concept of mankind evolving to some kind of "higher state" as we are clearly sinking and sinking fast.
(11/27/2019) Who Are the Racists? You cannot solve a problem if you refuse to diagnose the cause of the problem. The primary cause of "the problem" regarding race relations has nothing to do with almost non-existent "white supremacy" and everything to do with the collapse of the black family.
(11/10/2019) The Religion of White Supremacy? Nope. White supremacists do exist, but have you ever met one? They are almost as rare as the dodo. Attributing "white supremacy" to all white evangelicals who support the president is worse than dishonest, it falls in the blood libel category.
(10/24/2109) Critical Race Theory – a bait-and-switch tactic infiltrating the Church. Sadly, the big mucky-mucks at the SBC seem to have fallen for it. Any time you start judging people and treating them on the basis of what they are rather than who they are, you are asking for trouble. And it is totally non-biblical.
(10/08/2019) Tom Brady's popularity tied to rise in 'white rage and white supremacy,' professor says. what is funny is that Brady is one of the least popular quarterbacks in the league. Just like Aaron Rogers, people accept that he is a great quarterback. But they don't like him. But what is disturbing is that there are no standards in academia any more. Peer review? Pointless. to put it bluntly, there is no reason to pay attention to anything coming out of academia today, because none of it can be trusted. Well, some can, but it has to go through a long review process post-publication. Most academic journals publish 95% garbage. Virtually none of what they publish will be remembered even a few short months after publication.
(10/08/2019) Beto O’Rourke’s Finest Hour is Debunked in Banned Video. His "finest hour" is his statement: “This country, though we would like to think otherwise, was founded on racism, has persisted through racism, and is racist today.” The video, banned from YouTube, debunks every single point O'Rourke used to back up his totally false claim. Why are the Democrats - O'Rourke isn't the only one - so determined to make race relations worse in America? Simple. Their electoral success is dependent on getting something around 90% of the Black vote. Getting that vote is far more important than improving the lot of Blacks and having racial harmony in America.
