Wow. What’s that? Well, you have scads of followers on social media: people who look up to you, and take you for some kind of oracle. If you tell them something’s cool, they’ll think it’s cool (maybe “think” is the wrong word here; but let it stand). They watch you on TV and breathlessly await your next utterance.
And out on Long Island, a high school football coach has been suspended—for winning. It seems the government in Nassau County has a rule against your football team winning by more than 42 points, and has set up a special panel to “investigate” and punish such mischief. No job is too trivial, too small, or too inane for government to thrust itself into.
Seattle’s public schools, and the unionized communists who “teach” there, have proposed to bring in “Social Justice Math”. That’s math “infused” with leftist blather. “If Johnny has two apples but his great-great-grandfather fought for the South in the Civil War, how many apples should Johnny be *allowed* to have?”
In Britain local police have launched an “anti-hate” campaign that depicts white people as “haters” and declares, as it were, open season on them. Victims of hate [barf bag, please] are exhorted to report any and all “hateful behavior” to police—“even if it isn’t a crime”, and don’t worry about proving your complaint because “you don’t even need evidence.”
Teachers’ unions have known that for years. Study the nooze reporting, if you can find any, of any teachers’ strike. As if tenure, almost ironclad job security, pensions, and, in many school districts, salaries higher than those of the defenseless taxpayers whose labors support them, teachers’ unions sometimes go on strike for higher pay. Heated public meetings follow.
How do you pray to any god who has neither the power nor the authority to determine good or evil, right or wrong—those standards being revised day to day by Nancy Pelosi and her merry band of moral imbeciles?
God Himself put the kibosh on the first globalist enterprise, the building of the Tower of Babel, when he confounded the builders’ universal language, divided them into nations, and spread them out all over the world.
First we’ve got a sales pitch for robot priests, their theology grounded on Artificial Intelligence, a euphemism for Artificial Stupidly. To illustrate just how much thought has gone into this, check out this headline. “Robot priests more acceptable to Protestants than Catholics, says professor.”
Despite the climate cult having been caught lying and cheating, fudging figures, suppressing some data while overstating others, times without number, they refuse to leave the stage, clinging to the biggest scam in history for all they’re worth.
The publicly stated position of the Democrat Party is that Christians—meaning most of you—are the bad guys who’ve made America a racist, sexist hell-hole. They are against you, boys and girls. Most of them insist there’s no such thing as boys and girls.
In Portland, Oregon, where the mayor orders the cops to stand down whenever Antifa thugs feel like rioting, fans of the Portland Timbers soccer team are making the soccer league increasingly uneasy over their mix of politics and sports.
Facebook censored me again this week, and that little quote above was all the explanation I received—which is, of course, no explanation. I received it literally within seconds of composing my blog post and attempting to share it on Facebook.
The false doctrine of salvation by works of the flesh—that is, if you’re “good enough,” and have done a certain number of good works, God has to let you into Heaven—well, that was bad enough, even in its mildest forms.
In many school districts, “teachers” earn much higher salaries than the taxpayers who pay the school tax—to say nothing of fabulous pensions which the rest of us can only fantasize about. Oh, we get to elect the school board members; but they don’t represent us. They’re only there to carry out the state’s dictates.
They have passed a resolution—the Constitution forbids them making it a law—blaming “religious people” for the high rate of suicide among persons who practice homosexuality. If we take the Bible at all seriously, we know that such practices are sin. Therefore it’s our fault that the “gays” aren’t happy.
As hard as it may be to believe this, the Chicago Teachers’ Union recently sent a “delegation” to Venezuela to, er, “learn” from the failing socialist regime and demonstrate their “solidarity” with its dictator.
I refuse to be ashamed of the moon landing. I refuse to be ashamed of George Washington. If anything, this latest tantrum by the Far Left Crazy makes me all the prouder of these men’s achievements.
In 1935 a Russian-born communist painted a 1,600-foot-long mural on the walls of what is now a San Francisco high school. His theme was the life of George Washington; and he emphasized Washington as a slave owner and a persecutor of Native Americans.
Unless you say the right things, the nice progressive, politically correct things, there are a lot of Real Smart People who say you should shut up.
In his science-fiction/fantasy novel, “That Hideous Strength,” C.S. Lewis imagined a post-World War II Britain dominated, and that’s putting it mildly, by a scientific consortium empowered by the government. Written in 1943, the book portrays the kind of Britain you’d expect to see if the Third Reich had won the war.
Is it fair to be punished for something that you didn’t do? Like, for instance, own slaves. Or to be punished for something that someone else did, that you couldn’t possibly have prevented?
Our culture has gone “transgender”-mad. Not that there’s any such thing as “transgender.” There are only profoundly disturbed people, and liars who encourage them, who say they’re “transgender.” I have to put quotes around it because it isn’t real. Nowhere does “transgender” fly so high as in our public schools.
This is, like, so simple! All you’ve got to do is slow the clock way down and reverse that universal law of thermodynamics that says that all systems naturally and inevitably grow more random with the passage of time, until they break down. God addresses this by translating souls to a place where time is not an issue; but in this fallen world, it is. So you hire lots of Science and you cure aging! No sweat.
The new generation of sex-bots is on its way; and they’re gonna have Wi-Fi, so you won’t even have to plug ‘em in. But best of all, scientists—sorry, I mean Scientists with a capital “S”—say these new sex-bots will be “indistinguishable from human beings.”
It would be an America in which a tax rate of 70 percent and up would shatter the economy. An America of unlimited abortion, even of babies born alive. An America of “open borders,” with millions of illegal aliens swarming in unchecked, importing crime, poverty, and societal chaos.
But the real problem is that too many of us get spoon-fed everything from day care right through college, which is a kind of day care, only more expensive… and suddenly you’re done with college and the spoon mysteriously disappears.
After Alexis DeToqueville toured America in the early 19th century, he predicted that the United States would be a great, successful nation. America will be great, he said, because America is good; and the thing that made it good, he said, was the nation’s strong attachment to the Christian religion.
Some years ago, back in the 1990s, I was substitute teaching at a local high school—U.S. History, Advanced Placement class: smart kids. Their teacher had left an assignment for them to do in class, so I didn’t have much to do.
You work like a dog to earn the money for your kids to go to college, they’re still going to be saddled with a student debt that’ll take years to pay off—and what do you get?
Are you tired of trying to learn the names of politicians’ lawyers? Worn out with keeping track of how many Far Left wackos are seeking the Democrat 2020 presidential nomination? And trying to decide which one is the craziest of them all—a hopeless task?
The United Kingdom, a country with no First Amendment to protect free speech, is preparing to set up an “Internet safety czar” to promote “Internet safety” and prevent “online harms,” with full powers to regulate the social media and shut sites down if he sees fit. “Huge fines” will also be on the menu.
I twist truth into “your truth” and “my truth,” which means no objective truth at all; and my servants in the schools and colleges see to it that my truth always wins and yours always loses.
Well, heck, what’s the point of being a member of the ruling class if you’re not going to rule people? Our rulers want to rule us. Tell us what to say and what not to say, tell us what to think and what not to think. Back it up with cops and prison sentences. And they call themselves “progressives.” That kind of progress, we don’t need.
