In both the 1934 original and 1971 remake, the movie “Death Takes a Holiday” means that there was-at least for the runtime of the movie-no more death while death, himself, was exploring humanity’s desire to cling to life. In the year 2017 AD, or the relatively new Politically Correct CE…Common Era, Truth has taken a holiday from all too many of the humans in America and has been replaced with both lies and misdirection. White people are apologizing for being white, whilst non-whites continue to berate them for being white and having some bizarre malady known as “white privilege.” If you believe that they US Constitution is one of the finest documents ever written, you are called racist, homophobic, Islamophobic (add your own disparaging words) etc. If your opinion is that the USA should-ultimately-be governed by the majority political party that won the election, and the victorious group happens to be conservative the winners are racist, homophobic, Islamophobic, racist (that’s correct as you’re at least two-times a racist for having the audacity to win) and a toothless, grade-school dropout and incessantly drooling Troglodyte. Again-remember-the truth is no longer permitted if it contradicts the ideology of the Luciferian Left…which it almost always does. And these are just the beginnings of your myriad and mortal sins. This will be a brief exploration into the bizarre and chilling developments that have recently begun to be thrust upon our nation, our President and we-the-people with the express purpose of effecting a Leftist coup and takeover-by force if and when necessary-of the United States of America.
First and foremost, let’s get something very straight for the snowflakes, “Antifa” and even, sadly, former-Communist-turned-Republican (sort of) Dr. Charles Krauthammer. Dr. Krauthammer last night said on FNC’s “Special Report” that both neo-NAZIs and the KKK were vehicles of the “far right.” Au Contraire. Neither NAZIs nor the KKK are on the far right. In actual fact, the acronym NAZI stands for Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei-the National Socialist German Workers Party. It is one of the demonic children of the far Left…as is the Ku Klux Klan. Even the left-leaning History Channel writes: “Founded in 1866, the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) extended into almost every southern state by 1870 and became a vehicle for white southern resistance [Democrat Party]* to the Republican Party’s Reconstruction-era policies aimed at establishing political and economic equality for blacks. Its members waged an underground campaign of intimidation and violence directed at white and black Republican leaders.”
Then, from “A Short History of Democrats, Republicans, and Racism,” we have the following: “Fact: The Republican Party was founded primarily to oppose slavery, and Republicans eventually abolished slavery. The Democratic Party fought them and tried to maintain and expand slavery. The 13th Amendment, abolishing slavery, passed in 1865 with 100% Republican support but only 23% Democrat support in congress.
“Why is this indisputable fact so rarely mentioned? PBS documentaries about slavery and the Civil War barely mention it, for example. One can certainly argue that the parties have changed in 150 years (more about that below), but that does not change the historical fact that it was the Democrats who supported slavery and the Republicans who opposed it. And that indisputable fact should not be airbrushed out for fear that it will tarnish the modern Democratic Party.
“Had the positions of the parties been the opposite, and the Democrats had fought the Republicans to end slavery, the historical party roles would no doubt be repeated incessantly in these documentaries. Funny how that works.”
In reality, it has been the Republican Party throughout US history that ended slavery, pushed the Civil Rights movement and legislation. On the other hand, the Democrat Party-contrary to what is now falsely being taught in US schools–has consistently opposed them. The Republican Party leadership has its own large problems…lack of work ethic and an, apparent, growing extreme laziness being but two. However, the Democrats are firmly and irrevocably-unless they finally manage to burn all the books containing accurate historical facts and truth and continue their leftist school retraining of all of our children with lies (parents…where are you?!?)-the political party of slavery, intolerance and racism. Despite its visible and all too often risible (think Sen. Lindsey Graham and his jumping so fast from Democrat to Republican ideology that he forgets which side he’s on at the moment) ongoing flaws, the Republican Party is not.
The recent Charlottesville, VA debacle and tragedy is the latest in a long series of Deep State moves against President Trump, his supporters and the US Constitution. The “White Nationalists” group had permits to meet and peacefully protest in Charlottesville, VA the planned tear-down of a statue of General Robert E. Lee. Note: This Civil War General-as described by the LL-fought for the South…which (according to the American Left) was the ‘wrong side’ upon which to be and to fight. Knowing that the group would be in the park-where they were legally allowed to be-the Soros-funded “Antifa” (which is fully fascist unto itself) decided (we suspect were paid and told) to incite and engage in rioting and fight the White Nationalists. They did. A young woman was killed. The White Nationalists strongly appear to have been ‘infiltrated’ by the left-for example, Jason Kessler the organizer of “Unite the Right” was a huge Obama supporter and a paid member of the “Occupy Wall Street” movement. Is this beginning to sound like a set-up to you? It appears that the original, permit-holding protestors may not have been violent, but were strongly and unmercifully provoked with baseball bats. It also appears that the “KKK,” “White Supremacists” and NAZIs-either real or fabricated paid leftist operatives–knew about the protests and came down specifically to start trouble.
And, what about the car that was said to have intentionally hit the crowd of leftists? It appears that may have, also, been a misreported. According to the below video which shows that the car driven by James Alex Fields was moving very slowly and carefully through the crowd to allow people to move out of the way…until the car began to be hit by a man wielding a baseball bat (Note: Many of the Antifa group were videoed carrying baseball bats). It was only after the attacks on his car began that Fields appeared to begin swerving, in order to get out of the way of his attacker, that screams were heard. Watch it then let me know what you think. Is it enough to at least question the media’s story?
Isn’t it interesting that the RINOs who seem to hate President Trump the most-including those believing they are our intellectual superiors-are some of the most vocal and demeaning to President Trump’s truth-telling? Has it been that long since these poseurs told the truth that they’re afraid it just might choke them?
And…isn’t it time that we began delving into what really happens in these cases before we jump to our own conclusions? Isn’t our Republic, at the very least, worth that? Is truth simply no longer important? If not…we’ve already lost.
Liberal fascists must be running out of Confederate generals to banish to the memory hole. Now they are going after heroes of the Texas Revolution, starting at the top:
The Sam Houston statue has been at Hermann Park since 1925, but a group that calls itself Texas Antifa has started a campaign to take down this and any other landmark that bears the name Sam Houston. …
[Last] Thursday, the group posted on its Facebook page saying, “Texans agree the disgusting idols of America’s dark days of slavery must be removed to bring internal peace to our country.”
The group also suggested Mayor Sylvester Turner should back the removal of the statue, because of his ethnicity and political affiliation.
Turner is a black Democrat.
Sam Houston owned 12 slaves and therefore is subject to demonization and expurgation from history — as are many of the Founding Fathers of the USA.
When Sam Houston was a senator in the 1800s, he repeatedly voted against the spread of slavery to new territories of the United States. He was also ousted as governor of Texas for refusing to align himself with the Confederacy.
Yeah, but he owned slaves. Plus he was white, and fought Mexicans. Any historical figure who is not in total compliance with the up to the minute requirements of political correctness is fair game.
Antifa … alluded to a partnership with Black Lives Matter.
Despite having similar objectives where historical monuments are concerned, BLM Houston denies a connection. We may or may not be able to judge who is telling the truth by the quality of the spelling when moonbats start defacing Sam Houston monuments with graffiti.
Although a fight currently waged against metal and mortar, the glee attending the left’s dismantling of New Orleans’s Confederate statuary has taken on the stink of bloodlust. Down go the statues of Beauregard, Davis, and Lee; up come the cries for those of Jackson, Washington, and Jefferson to follow. Never mind who owned a slave and who didn’t; among them were men who, at the certain risk of their lives, liberty, and sacred honor, brought about that document that’s served to liberate mankind generally.
Perhaps ironically, it was 18th-century slaveholders among those now under attack who did more than anyone in history to end slavery. With human bondage now resurgent on certain parts of the world, one feels compelled to inquire what the Confederate monument destroyers are doing to abolish it. Google that, and you’ll find that they have little argument with slavery as pursued by its third-world practitioners. This may be because the know-nothing ninjas of the regressive left regard slavery as less criminal than are those dead white males who established the right of all to freely pursue happiness. With that the case, it’s not just a handful of old American icons who are to be laid low by the Caterpillar’s blade; nor is it just that American history itself is slated to be reworked into a Spanish-language comic novella of Approved Ideology (bad as that is). Rather, it’s that our Taliban-toadying leftists intend to reduce the Constitution and its Bill of Rights to the same rubble that the Bamiyan Buddhas now occupy.
It’s in the pursuit of this aim that Beauregard’s statue has fallen – for he and the others who are to follow now form the Constitution’s guardians. To slander and revile them is to slander and revile it, and to physically strip them away from history and law is to do no other than expose it to the same fate.
Just as leftists hate the founders for their elevation of mankind to a state of freely functioning citizens, they hate the document created to codify the idea that principle rather than passion serves as the wellspring of liberty. The left is all about passion – mercurial, virtue-signaling, subjective, contradictory, hypocritical, and fashion-driven passion. Leftists might talk a good game, but in keeping with the Leninist doctrine of ends justifying means, they’ll freely abandon whatever noble principle they espouse one day to accomplish some nefarious goal the next. That’s how those who pretend to advocate for women and gays come to support Islamist doctrine; how those who pretend to advocate for free speech and non-violence become violent in free speech’s denial; and how those who espouse equality before the law have come to have the most restrictive view of who is to be tolerated as most any of us have seen in a lifetime.
So by all means, let us switch out Lee for Che and tear down U.S. Grant for H.C. Minh. While we’re at it, let’s give the statues of Washington and Jefferson the same earthward tumble that planted Saddam’s bronze proboscis in the turf. “Après eux, le deluge,” as Napoleon might have said of this phenomenon – to which Churchill might have added that we’re neither at “the beginning of the end, nor even the end of the beginning” of its pursuit. For once the founders have felt the bulldozers’ bite, and after the schools bearing their names, and the currency bearing their likenesses, have been given the Stalinist heave-ho, the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the rule of law itself will be easy pickings.
Obama and his supporters loved talking about history. His victory was historic. They were on the right side of history. History was an inevitable arc that bent their way.
The tidal force of demographics had made the old America irrelevant. Any progressive policy agenda was now possible because we were no longer America. We Were Obamerica. A hip, happening place full of smiling gay couples, Muslim women in hijabs and transgender actors. We were all going to live in a New York City coffee house and work at Green Jobs and live in the post-national future.
The past was gone. We were falling into the gorgeous wonderful future of dot com instant deliveries and outsourced everything. We would become more tolerant and guilty. The future was Amazon and Disney. It was hot and cold running social justice. The Bill of Rights was done. Ending the First and Second Amendments was just a clever campaign away. Narratives on news sites drove everything.
Presidents were elected by Saturday Night Live skits. John Oliver, John Stewart, Stephen Colbert and Samantha Bee were our journalists. Safe spaces were everywhere and you better watch your microaggressions, buddy. No more coal would be mined. No more anything would be made. The end of men was here. The end of the dead white men of the literary canon. The end of white people. The end of binary gender and marriage. The end of reason. The end of art. The end of 2 + 2 equaling 4. This was Common Core time. It was time to pardon an endless line of drug dealers. To kill cops and praise criminals. To be forced to buy worthless health insurance for wealth redistribution to those who voted their way to wealth.
The debate around Muslim violence all too often centers around doctrine-around what the Koran and Hadith (words and deeds of Muhammad) really mean and say. Forgotten in this debate is that Islamic scriptures are unnecessary in determining whether Islam teaches violence and war against non-Muslims.
Consider some facts, attested to by both Muslim and non-Muslim primary historic sources: A mere decade after the birth of Islam in the 7th century, the jihad burst out of Arabia. In just a few decades, Muslims had permanently conquered what was then two-thirds of the Christian world. The heart of the Muslim world today-nations like Egypt, Syria, all of North Africa, Turkey and more-were, in the 7th century, the heart of Christendom.
Thereafter it was a continuous war on Christian Europe. Among other nations and territories that were attacked and/or came under Muslim domination throughout the centuries are (to give them their modern names and in no particular order): Portugal, Spain, France, Italy, Sicily, Switzerland, Austria, Hungary, Greece, Russia, Poland, Bulgaria, Ukraine, Lithuania, Romania, Albania, Serbia, Armenia, Georgia, Crete, Cyprus, Croatia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Macedonia, Belarus, Malta, Sardinia, Moldova, Slovakia, and Montenegro.
Less than three decades after the traditional date of Islam’s founding (622), three of the five original Christian centers (“sees”) founded by the apostles-in Alexandria, Antioch, and Jerusalem-were forever swallowed up by Islam; the fourth, Constantinople, valiantly resisted the Islamic onslaught for centuries, but was finally conquered in the name of Islam in 1453. Though sacked and burned by Muslims as early as 846, only distant Rome-the Vatican, fifth of the ancient Christian sees-remained unconquered.
The few European regions that escaped direct Islamic occupation due to their northwest remoteness include Great Britain, Scandinavia, and Germany. That, of course, does not mean that they were not attacked by Islam. Indeed, in the furthest northwest of Europe, in Iceland, Christians used to pray that God save them from the “terror of the Turk.” This was not mere paranoia; as late as 1627, Muslim corsairs raided the northern Christian island seizing four hundred captives and selling them in the slave markets of Algiers.
Nor did America escape. A few years after the formation of the United States, in 1800, American trading ships in the Mediterranean were plundered and their sailors enslaved by Muslim corsairs. The ambassador of Tripoli explained to Thomas Jefferson that it was a Muslim’s right and duty to make war upon non-Muslims wherever they could be found, and to enslave as many as they could take as prisoners.
The deadliest time in United States history was four years of Civil War, when 640,000 Americans were killed or wounded. Over 260,000 of them were Confederate soldiers. In recognition of those appalling losses, southern and northern states named public buildings, parks, and schools for their fallen soldiers. The U.S. Army named facilities for brave Union officers, and even named ten bases for Confederates. But Hollywood now wants to rebrand the Civil War as a progressive event, acceptable to all Americans.
Julianne Moore, an Oscar-winning actress in her late 50s, has edged back into the publicity spotlight by petitioning Virginia’s Fairfax County Public School Board to change the name of J.E.B. Stuart High School to Thurgood Marshall High School. In defense of her petition she and her producer friend wrote that they felt they had to apologize for the school’s name “our whole lives.” It seems, however, that not everyone in the Fairfax community sympathizes.
At a meeting at the J.E.B. Stuart High School in late May, county officials listened to differing opinions on the name change issue. Local news station WTOP reported the meeting, noting that petitions have also been created against changing the name, and that school alumnus Paul Clarke said, “When you start changing names and revising history just because somebody doesn’t like that particular name I think you can run into some real trouble.”
In a survey to test how the community felt about a change, 56 percent said the name should not be changed. “Hopefully they’ll leave the name the way it is,” Clark added.
I keep wondering what it must have been like to be a young student at West Point listening to their Commander in Chief’s platitudes and ignorance wash over them. West Point is where our nation’s future leaders in war receive an education in how to protect the nation by crushing our enemies, if Presidents and Congress will let them.
Unfortunately for them, this President seems to think that climate change is the nation’s biggest enemy and that a loose coalition of Islamic fanatics is the other. There was no talk of an increasingly aggressive China, a Russia that seized Crimea and would like a chunk of the Ukraine, or an Iran that got out from under some strong financial sanctions and will continue to build its own nuclear weapons no matter what Obama and other negotiators may want.
The most anti-Israel President in US History We were warned.
BUT THIS IS STUNNING– A top Obama official this weekend told the Palestinian Al-Quds newspaper that there is no need for Palestinians to recognize Israel. Israel National News reported:
The United States believes there is no need for the Palestinian Authority (PA) to recognize Israel as a Jewish state as part of a peace agreement, State Department Spokeswoman Jen Psaki said Saturday.
Psaki, who spoke to the PA-based Arabic-language Al-Qudsnewspaper, said, “The American position is clear, Israel is a Jewish state. However, we do not see a need that both sides recognize this position as part of the final agreement.”
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has been adamant on the PA recognizing Israel as a Jewish state, explaining that the Arabs’ refusal to recognize Israel stands at the heart of the conflict.
