David Hogg may find himself Bar-B-Q’ed in Memphis

Published

on

On Wednesday evening, one of the most recognizable and outspoken gun-control activists in the country, thanks to CNN, David Hogg, posted a message on Twitter indicating he would be heading to Memphis, TN to stage a protest against Federal Express.

Memphis, Tennessee is home to Federal Express Corporations.

It is unclear why Hogg chose to post the address he did, as the company’s headquarters are located just off of Hacks Cross Rd, rather than Ridgeway.

David Hogg has, for months, been urging his followers to boycott the world-wide transport company. Federal Express Corporations offers discounted costs to customers whom belong to a variety of organizations, including the National Education Association and the National Rifle Association (NRA), among many others.

It is FedEx’s discounted cost offering to customers belonging to the National Rifle Association which has landed the company in Hogg’s crosshairs.

Hogg did not state when the protest would be held, but he indicated more information would be forthcoming.

In February, David Hogg appeared on MSNBC’s “AM Joy.” During his interview, Hogg exhorted FedEx to end its discount program for Americans belonging to the National Riffle Association.

Also during his interview, David Hogg claimed, erroneously, “The CEO is one of the biggest donors to the NRA, and we have to take care of them.”

Fred Smith, CEO and founder of Federal Express, is neither a member nor a financial contributor to the NRA. Back in February, spokesman Patrick Fitzgerald stated, unequivocally, that Mr. Smith “has never been a member of the NRA, nor has he ever contributed to the NRA … and his political contributions are a matter of public record.”

On February 26, 2018, in response to the David Hogg’s accusations, the company issued a statement which included the following:

FedEx is a common carrier under Federal law and therefore does not and will not deny service or discriminate against any legal entity regardless of their policy positions or political views.  The NRA is one of hundreds of organizations in our alliances/association Marketing program whose members receive discounted rates for FedEx shipping.  FedEx has never set or changed rates for any of our millions of customers around the world in response to their politics, beliefs or positions on issues.

Late Wednesday, after Hogg’s tweets, Federal Express Corporations issued a statement reiterating the company’s earlier statements:

FedEx is aware there are some continuing concerns related to the NRA, and we want to provide important, clarifying facts… the pricing program that is the focus of these concerns is not for the NRA itself – it is for American small businesses and consumers that are members of the association.

FedEx has also pointed out that UPS does in fact have a contract with the National Riffle Association.

David Hogg has not targeted UPS.

My Take:

This dude is about to become Memphis Bar-b-que!

When my father, who was a decorated USAF Captain, returned from Vietnam, he found himself, like many other veteran pilots of that time period, unemployable. He was 30-years-old, which, at that time, was considered too old for a new higher. My dad worked at a laundry mat until, by God’s divine intervention, he was introduced to Fred Smith, a guy who was just starting up a new company and needed pilots.

Fred Smith is also a Vietnam veteran.

Acquiring a position as a pilot entirely changed the trajectory of my family’s life. It was a genuine gift, a blessing.

We aren’t alone.

FedEx employs thousands of hardworking people in the Mid-South. You would be hard-pressed to find someone who wasn’t related to or friends of a FedEx employee. Thousands of families depend on this company for employment.

And… Most people don’t take kindly to others interfering in their jobs, their income.

Fred Smith and Federal Express have generously given back to our community, contributed millions of dollars for education and other charitable causes.

In fact, the FedEx St. Jude Classic, the PGA golf tournament benefiting St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital, kicks off next week. 2017’s purse was $6.4 million.

Federal Express Corporations has generously funded technology education through the University of Memphis’ FedEx Technology Institute, where students are trained in “data analytics, information security and testing, intermodal freight transportation, mobile sensors and quality data management” (Bizjournals.com).  Through a FedEx-University of Memphis Research Foundation partnership, students act as interns in a state of the art call center.

There are countless examples of the generosity FedEx has afforded schools across the country, such as here, here, and here.

Then, there is the matter of guns…

This is Memphis.

THIS IS MEMPHIS.

T-H-I-S  I-S  M-E-M-P-H-I-S!

There are thousands of bad guys with guns – especially illegally-obtained guns! In addition, our police force has been hemorrhaging officers for several years now.

Here, both Democrats and Republicans own guns: black, white, Hispanic, et al.

We may be a Democrat-driven area, but no one wants to be the chump who protects his home with flowers and sunshine.

We’d all love to have the bad guys’ guns taken away. We all cringe at the thought of any more babies losing their lives, whether by stray bullets or gangs or school shootings. Still, the fact remains, we live day-to-day knowing we must be equally armed in order to protect ourselves.

Gun-control isn’t very popular here. Sure, it has its cult following and we all know the criminals support disarming the law-abiding, but most people prefer to live in reality

So, in conclusion…

Federal Express won’t be the one getting skewered.

It will be David Hogg, himself, who will find himself on a hot burner.

He’d be wise not to live by such lofty expectations.

In Memphis, we aren’t so “high on the hogg,.”

Facebook uncensors Live Action after Ted Cruz, Josh Hawley intervene

Facebook uncensors Live Action after Ted Cruz Josh Hawley intervene

Pro-life activist group Live Action has been in hot water with Facebook since last month. They’ve been accused of spreading false news after a fact-check group claimed a video of Lila Rose saying “abortions is never medically necessary” was false. This drew the attention of Senators Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley, both of whom have been going after Facebook for anti-conservative bias in their censorship patterns for some time.

As part of Facebook’s International Fact-Checking Network (IFCN), a group called Health Feedback used the fact-checking of two physicians with ties to pro-abortion groups. This led to the group’s page and content being censored with reduced exposure and warnings placed on their content as fake news.

Cruz and Hawley sent a letter to Facebook calling for an investigation and noting they’ve already uncovered multiple cases of unabashed bias against conservative content on pages. Facebook replied in an unexpectedly compliant manner.

“We have been in touch with the IFCN which has opened an investigation to determine whether the fact checkers who rated this content did so by following procedures designed to ensure impartiality,” a Facebook spokesperson said in a statement. “While the IFCN investigates, we are removing the relevant fact checks and have communicated this to the members of the US Senate who brought this specific concern to our attention.”

Facebook removes fact check from anti-abortion video after criticism

The fact check was published by the group Health Feedback, part of the International Fact-Checking Network (IFCN), which is partnered with Facebook to crack down on misinformation on the platform. Health Feedback’s reviews rated Rose’s claim as inaccurate, saying, “Certain medical conditions such as placenta previa and HELLP syndrome can make abortion a necessary medical procedure in order to prevent the mother’s death.”

Live Action said that after the fact check was posted late last month, the group was notified by Facebook that its page’s content would be subject to “reduced distribution and other restrictions because of repeated sharing of false news.”

Censorship by Big Tech is an ongoing issue that requires both lawmakers and conservative users to stand out ground. They are protected as unbiased platforms by Section 230. They need to play fair.

Two presidential candidates attended conference conducted by gay- and Jew-hating Islamists

Two presidential candidates attended conference conducted by gay- and Jew-hating Islamists

America’s mainstream media is following around the major presidential candidates like ducklings chasing after their mothers. They cover every move they make, word they speak, and hand they shake. But there are times when the media goes silent and selectively omits an activity from being reported. Such was the case for those covering Bernie Sanders and Julian Castro, who spoke at the ISNA Convention two weeks ago.

Oh, you didn’t hear about that one? It’s because the ISNA Convention included a who’s-who list of known jihadists, anti-Semites, and people who call for the death of all homosexuals. That’s not the kind of event the mainstream media likes to publicize for their puppetmasters.

Bernie Sanders Attends ISNA Convention With Islamists Who Backed Killing Gay People

When ISNA, an Islamic group accused of supporting terrorists, announced a presidential forum for ISNACON 2019, the expectations were low. The Islamic Society of North America had been created by Muslim Brotherhood members and was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Hamas Holy Land Foundation trial.

And even if the 2020 Democrats were willing to overlook the minor matter of murdering Jews, which they usually are, Muzammil Siddiqi, ISNA’s former president who chairs its Fiqh Council, which dispenses Islamic sharia law, has assented to the death penalty for homosexuality.

At the 2019 ISNA convention, Siddiqi spoke on “Strengthening Our Connection with Allah.”

Imam Siraj Wahhaj, an unindicted co-conspirator in the World Trade Center bombing, was there at an Imam Round Table. Wahhaj has repeatedly endorsed violence against non-Muslims. That wouldn’t bother Democrats, but Wahhaj has also declared that “masculine women” are “cursed”, claimed that the “feminist movement” is headed by “lesbians” and then offered a reminder of Islam’s LGBT position.

“And you know, brothers and sisters, you know what the punishment is, if a man is found with another man? The Prophet Mohammad said the one who does it and the one to whom it is done to, kill them both,” Imam Wahhaj said.

Democrats who want to win the nomination need the Muslim vote. But many of the thought-leaders in Muslim communities promote an agenda that is antithetical to the Democrats’ stance, particularly as it pertains to the LGBTQ community. It’s for this reason we do not see reports of these activities in the mainstream media. They’d rather take an extended coffee break or bash on President Trump while major Democratic candidates speak to Islamists.

The symbiotic relationship between the Democratic Party and radical is not based on shared values, only a shared enemy. Both want Trump and as many Republicans as possible out of Washington DC in 2020.

Jerry Falwell Jr.’s closet endorsement of gay marriage

Jerry Falwell Jrs closet endorsement of gay marriage

On of the largest faces of Christian Conservative political activism is Jerry Falwell Jr who emerged in the age of Trump by being one of the first evangelical leaders to endorse Donald Trump. Since then he has been one of the most vocal proponents for Trump among Big Eva. Falwell has acquired a fair amount of political influence in that last three years, and is under fire from Christians for endorsing a Republican Congressmen, Denver Riggleman, who officiated a gay wedding. His endorsement below:

There’s a lot of BS in this endorsement letter, so let’s only look at the critical highlights.

“I was told they are assuming that because you officiated at a gay marriage recently, that you are not socially conservative.”

That’s not an assumption, that’s a logical conclusion. He officiated it, not merely attended. Therefore, we can conclude that he is not socially conservative. Now Jerry Falwell Jr. then makes an argument about the futility of resistance to gay marriage. But I challenge you to replace gay marriage with abortion.

“I was told they are assuming that because you officiated at a[n] abortion recently, that you are not socially conservative. I believe that excluding other conservatives over issues that have already been decided by the US Supreme Court does nothing but help the liberals gain more power. There is nothing that anyone in the House of Delegates or the Virginia Senate can do to change the law on gay marriage or abortion until the US Supreme Court reverses its previous decision”

So basically what he is admitting is he is no better that National Right to Life, who would refuse massive pro-life legislation because of the courts. While Jerry Falwell Jr is trying to be a strategic shill over the issue abortion, he does not trivialize the issue like he does gay marriage. In fact, he makes no effort to rebuke, disagree, or even empathize with why Conservatives, Christians would be have been outraged enough to censure him at a local party level. He either has no care in the world about pertinent religious issues in politics or secretly supports gay marriage. Let’s not forget, he went out of his way to endorse Riggleman prior to the primary because of this issue. How else is this to be taken as a closet endorsement of gay marriage, in the name of pragmatism.

He is the face of Liberty University. If he is unwilling to rebuke a mediocre low-notoriety Congressmen in his state, then what lengths will he go to to advance poor politicians who perpetuate our nation’s rejection against God. If he was unwilling to stand up against Denver Riggleman because he’s a Republican, then what is the point of him having any sort of sway in politics. Jerry Falwell Jr may fight against the Social Justice Gospel that is corrupting the church, but he is idolizing the Republican Party which is causing him to stumble on key issues. This shortcoming deserves rebuke. Our focus is to be on serving God, not the Republican Party.
