Whose children are they?

Published

on

Among the most basic of all human rights are to live according to one’s own religious faith and to bring up one’s offspring as one sees fit. For those of us in the Judeo-Christian tradition, the wisdom imparted by the Almighty to King Solomon expressed in Proverbs 22:6 instructs us “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”

Proverbs 226 meme

But today this right is being stolen by the government. California is not the only state depriving citizens of their parental rights, but they are often the most egregious. Imagine imposing a grades K-12 curriculum training children in the tenets of progressive sexuality with no ability for their parents to opt out for them. You don’t even have to imagine because this is now reality.

In every perverse policy implemented in California, Hawaii is seldom far behind in playing copycat. Those of you who have children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren in public schools today need to carefully monitor what they are being taught because their hearts and minds are being stolen from you.

Hitler Youth

The National Socialist German Workers’ Party, which has gone down in infamy as the Nazi Party, recruited adolescents to serve the Füehrer, a title which Adolf Hitler assumed meaning leader or guide. The totalitarian government would guide the children, not those who brought them into this world. Boys and girls were told to betray their own parents if they did not remain totally loyal and dedicated to Hitler.

China

Chairman Mao Tse-Tung also indoctrinated the youth of China. Now Xi Jinping is once again clamping down on freedom of expression and recruiting kids to turn in their parents even for just holding worship services in a house church.

North Korea

For the 18th year in a row, Open Doors rates North Korea as the most oppressive regime in the world and the hardest place for Christians to survive on Planet Earth. Young people are told to follow Kim Jong-un and worship him and to betray their parents if they see them with a Bible or hear them mention Jesus Christ.

Gaza Kids

Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad in Gaza are preparing both boys and girls to breach the border fence into Israel and to slaughter Jews.

Whenever governments co-opt the youngest generation for their own nefarious purposes and deny parents the right to raise their own kids, an entire generation is corrupted, the future course is set and predetermined and the people ~ their own people ~ suffer the consequences.

The common thread in all of this is that ideologies that are insecure need to enforce their dominance, being unable to rely upon people freely choosing their way of life. This applies to Communist governments in China, North Korea, Cuba, Vietnam. It applies to Islamic regimes from Iran to Gaza and back to Indonesia. The state and the religion are one and the same.

AOC Pelosi

Here in the good old USA, Democrat Progressive Socialist Old Guard embraces the New Guard. It used to be that liberals just wanted your money to pay for their extravagances. Now they demand your very soul. They also have their eyes set on ripping your children from your grasp.

So what are you going to do about it? First, those of us in blue States dominated by leftist ideologues need to regain control if we ever had it or to get it even if we didn’t. Don’t allow the public schools to continue indoctrinating our progeny and depriving us of our heritage and legacy.

Keep after your kids’ teachers, school principals, local school boards, boards of education, local legislators, mayors, governors and all officials that determine what your children are being taught in their classes. Also lobby your U.S Senators and Representatives. In a case such as Hawaii where you know you don’t have a snowball’s chance of changing their minds, vote them out of office!

If possible, put your impressionable boys and girls in Christian Schools which still know the difference between boys and girls. But, even if you can afford to do that, don’t neglect the public good by ridding our society of corrupt evil influences. Get involved in local campaigns and elect better men and women at all echelons of government. Consider seriously even running yourself. Sometimes the only way to get a job done right is indeed to do it yourself.

2020 Elections

The election on November 3, 2020 will be the most critical one you will have ever voted in thus far. Some of the Democrat contenders are far to the left of anything Hillary Clinton ever said about needing a village to raise a child.

They despise conservatives and everything we stand for. They realize that if they can’t dissuade us from our beliefs and sway us to theirs, that their control of the educational system will enable them to take away our children. The next generation of Americans will be lost if we don’t act decisively very soon.

I knew who I was at a very young age. There is absolutely nothing a socialist can say or do to remove that deep-seated conviction. The da`wah to get us to betray our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and convert to Islam will likewise never work on me.

My parents had free rein to raise me as they chose and as they believed was for my own good. Now that I am a senior citizen, those sound roots in American culture, patriotism grounded in a firm understanding of our country’s founding and history, and the good news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, will never leave me.

But think now of your kindergartener being taught that he or she is gender fluid. That sexual experiences can begin at any age and take any form whatsoever. Everything goes. Absolutely nothing is off limits.

The birds and bees discussion has been replaced by witches and cauldrons. They are brewing up a concoction to poison your child’s mind.

Cauldron

I’m trying to put this all into perspective. Consider if Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, John Adams, James Madison and George Washington had grown up under those conditions. If there had even been a Declaration of Independence and a U.S. Constitution, what kind of distorted values do you suppose they would have enshrined? Nothing like what has brought us through nearly two and a half centuries since then to this critical fork in the road where we now stand.

Fork in the Road

The people we elect at all levels of government are those who determine the course our country, our state and our local community will take. The values and belief system they embody will be imparted to our children.

It’s more than just our schools and educational system. It’s our entire national infrastructure. As responsible parents and responsible citizens we must get involved and we must stand up for what is right.

How far have we come since Benjamin Franklin, America? Have we replaced our national icons with the likes of Ilhan Omar? Who are the thought leaders of today? Are they firmly founded in the Judeo-Christian tradition? Do they believe that laws made by mortals are subservient to Sharia?

Omar

Or are they just too dense to learn from the mistakes of the past? How you answer this question and how you respond to this challenge will determine whether future generations of Americans will inherit the same wonderful country that our parents gave us!

Hashtag Authoritarianism: How the Left uses subtle methods to manipulate the electorate

Hashtag Authoritarianism How the Left uses subtle methods to manipulate the electorate

The danger of the Authoritarian Socialist Left using social media trends and tricks to alter opinions.

The dominant social media publishers are exerting their influence subliminally and the situation is only getting worse. It’s to the point that a small and exceedingly undemocratic elite could decide to swing future elections to the Left from now on.

This was extensively discussed in a recent congressional hearing where experts and victims of social media free speech suppression presented the problem in stark terms on the future of our representative republic

#Istandwith [insert name of SJW ‘victim’]

The danger in all of this was perfectly exemplified by the initial report of an alleged ‘verbal assault’ of Georgia Democrat Erica Thomas by a “white man” because she had too many items in the express lane. Suddenly the erstwhile hashtag #IstandwithErica trended and we were off to the races.

At first, she doubled down on her lies. Then she backpedalled, but not before showing the gullibility of several candidates for president.

What is rather interesting is that the hashtag in question started trending in the early afternoon Saturday, staying in the list for what was trending in the colonies for a few hours and then suddenly dropping off the list as though it has never been there. Then early Sunday another hashtag #HateHoax emerged.

These hashtags can easily drive a particular narrative, emphasising certain themes over others. These ‘trends’ are then picked up by a lazy national socialist media to drive the news cycle. All based on a hidden realm that decides what is ‘trending’ now.

Who determines what is trending?

According to Twitter, Trends are determined by an algorithm [In other words, we don’t want to tell you] depending on a number of factors. However, it is quite telling that certain trends can be ‘promoted’ or placed at the top of the list for money. What’s to stop some enterprising employee from adjusting the ‘algorithm’ to have a certain topic or issue trend?

There is a touch of mob rule in those who post in the trending twitter hashtag lists. People who want to be part of the crowd in adding their voice to the issue or cause. This is made easier with the ‘#Istandwith[insert name of someone of instant fame]’ format. Then it’s easier to go along with the SJW crowd – saying something without actually saying something.

If hashtags can be ‘promoted’ what is to stop the dominant social media publishers from ‘demoting a trending tag?

AutoComplete autocracy.

All hashtags are equal, but some hashtags are more equal than others to paraphrase George Orwell. This was seen in the little graphic added to the ‘#Marchforourlives’ or #Pride tags. Apparently, this is a perk of being of a certain political bent. Then there is the very useful feature of auto completing certain tags. Meanwhile, other tags don’t seem to engender this benefit because they don’t fit into the politics of the ‘algorithms’.

The hashtag #LibertyControl is a prime example, since it contravenes the #GunControl hashtag, framing this issue as being one of Liberty instead of inanimate objects of metal and wood, it does accrue the ‘perks’ of a more politically palatable tag.

Desire for control determines one’s place on the political spectrum.

Governmental power or desire for control is the only practical metric for arranging the political spectrum. It is to the advantage of some groups to obfuscate or confuse the issue, leaving it undefined, but with the implication that Left means good and Right means bad or some other nonsense.

These vague metrics are confusing at best and dreadfully false at worst. The metric of governmental power or desire for control is the underlying theme to almost all dictionary definitions of political ideologies, thus, this makes the most sense. Never mind that it eviscerates certain political lies or long-held but farcical beliefs.

For all of their false protestations over a desire for democracy, the far-Left radical socialists only want one thing: Power. For all their words about equality, they desire the exact opposite just as happens with their use of the term Liberal in connection with the cause of Liberty.

These examples show that the Left is using the dominant social media publishers to manipulate and control the electorate. Control epitomises the Left and the Left epitomises control, even if it’s by covert methods and hashtags.

The Takeaway.

While these issues may seem rather inconsequential, consider that we as a nation are on the razor’s edge in what happens in the next few years. Its not being overly hyperbolic to assert that if the national socialist Left attains control of the government in 2020 that will be the end of the country. Were they to win, they will no doubt open the borders and offer anyone and every free goodies all paid for by the taxpayers – until the run out of other people’s money.

Authoritarianism via hashtags is but one method the Left wants to use to accomplish that goal. Create a crisis or cause and have it trend and have enough people vote for their own enslavement almost subconsciously.

Ben Carson points to Trump’s policies as proof he is not a racist

Ben Carson points to Trumps policies as proof he is not a racist

HUD Secretary Ben Carson knows about racism. He’s dealt with it throughout his life growing up in Detroit. He knows how to recognize a racist and makes an important point about President Trump as the media and Democrats continue to paint him as a bigot. His point: If you want to see whether or not Trump is a racist, look at his policies.

I’ll take that sentiment up a notch and say look at the results of his policies. The unemployment rates for black and Hispanic Americans are at all-time lows. His attempts to thwart illegal immigration are designed protect and empower legal immigrants. And the freedom to live as an American citizen regardless of race or any other element of intersectionality has never been higher. If Trump is a racist, he’s very bad at it.

The point the media and Democrats point to is a Tweet that many question whether or not it was a racist sentiment. Don’t buy into the media lies that it’s a foregone conclusion; they are using the logical fallacy of “begging the question” in order to try to convince the American people that they don’t like Trump’s Tweet. But in reality, what he said in context was not racist. Irresponsible? Yes. Inappropriate? Maybe, maybe not. The House members he was referring to have a tendency to inflame people, mostly in a negative way, and have demonstrated clearly anti-American worldviews through their own words and actions.

Secretary Carson’s point should be heeded by all Americans. If Trump is a racist, his policies certainly don’t reflect that. If he’s trying to keep minorities down, he’s failing miserably. But look at the state of minorities in Democratic cities. Different story.

What the far-Left radical socialists do not understand: They are now a small political minority

What the far-Left radical socialists do not understand They are now a small political minority

Studies have shown that the far-Left radical socialists are an ever-shrinking but excessively vocal political minority.

This is one of those columns that’s been in composition for weeks, being a number of ideas that floated about in their own eco-sphere until they attained enough weight to gel together. Oddly enough, the spark was a piece on journalist Andy Ngo in Buzzfeed ‘News’. Apparently being attacked by a mob of the fascist Left that put him in hospital was the best thing for his career, never mind the neurological aftereffects.

Much like the stopped clock being right twice a day, the Far-Left media does get things correct on occasion. They have begun to label anyone not of their ilk to be on the ‘center-right’ or Conservative as in this case.

The Hidden tribes study showed this to be a stark situation for the far-Left radical socialists, with only 8% of the country self-identifying as such. These are what the study termed to be ‘Progressive’ activists [ a misnomer in itself since they want to go back to the failed ideas of socialism of the past – but we digress]. However, they do have it correct in that most who are not of their collectivist cadres are on the Pro-Liberty Right, the country’s political majority.

The political minority that is the far-Left radical socialists: The Totalitarian Ten Percent

We’ve rounded this up to 10% for generosity and alliteration to be the Totalitarian Ten Percent as an accurate and handy moniker for those who want to ‘Rule the population’. This is the ever shrinking true believers in socialism, that dismiss the stark evidence of it’s 400 years of failure as ‘not really being socialism’ or some such nonsense. Many on the Conservative-Right have eviscerated this mythology numerous times:

The study showed the rest of the population as being the opposite of the ‘Totalitarian Ten Percent’. The people in the 90% fall into the defined categories of the rational political spectrum as being on the Pro-Liberty Right moving from the political center with ‘Traditional and passive’ Liberals, those politically disengaged, moderates and Conservatives.

Studies on ‘Political correctness’ the culture and Liberty destroying scourge of our day also show a decreasing tendency for ‘concern’ on this issue. As has been the case throughout our history, we have fixed the problems that have plagued us. The issue is that while the political majority on the right has righted these wrongs. The political minority on the socialist Far-Left has taken credit for these actions and then come up with new issues no one else care about, such as the labeling of underground cable access points as ‘manholes’. The rest of us on the Pro-Liberty political majority right don’t care, we’re too busy living our lives..

The problem of the Totalitarian Ten Percent annoying everyone else.

The problem for the political majority is that Totalitarian Ten Percent holds the attention or is part of the nation’s socialist media. While their ratings and audience are shrinking at an alarming rate for them, they have an unfortunate tendency to lash out at the rest of us. Their desperation has driven them to want to burn it all down, causing havoc and chaos, so they can step in and offer their ‘solution’. These are, of course, the usual concepts of an ‘Ideal state’ born in the Socratic dialogues of Plato’s Republic from 2,400 years ago, ideas that have failed for centuries but are now supposedly ‘new’.

This is why they want the insanity of open borders, free health care for the world, gun confiscation and strict controls on the Liberty of free speech. This is their ‘Hail Mary’ play to avoid ignominious defeat of their precious cult of collectivism. Encourage as many illegal invaders from around the world, in addition to murderous criminal gang members and drugs, to stream over the border to be newly minted citizens that can vote for all kinds of goodies with other people’s money.

Their socialist national agenda is clear to all that are listening, offer free healthcare, free college, free housing, free food, free childcare, free money and anything else they can think of. To everyone and anyone willing to pay thousands to hop a flight to Brazil and cross the Southern border.

All of this ‘paid’ for by simply – and insanely – inflating the money supply.  The funds for this extreme largess eventually being other peoples’ money. Never mind that their ‘Flat Earth’ socialist ideology has never worked in 4 Centuries, or that one way or another, it will destroy the economy. That’s a feature, not a bug for them, because in their minds, when the whole thing inevitably implodes, they will run in and offer their ‘solution’. In much the same way that they are offering the same solution to Obamacare imploding.

In the case of the inspiration for writing this, the piece from Buzzfeed ‘News’ was essentially another case of the overly vocal socialist far-Left blaming the victim. The piece also expended a number of electrons describing virtually anyone not of their collectivist mindset as Conservative or on the right, hardly attributable to some media personalities who ‘rightfully’ [pardon the pun] consider themselves to be Liberal or moderate. Thus was the inspiration for this essay.

It’s time for the rational 90% to stand up for sanity.

There are obvious problems with a small political minority of ‘neo Bolsheviks’ wanting to run everyone’s life, beginning with their complete hypocrisy [what else is new] in making demands for democracy. But then again, these are people who disdain Liberty while pretending to be ‘Liberal’ or want to go back to failed ancient ideas while being ‘progressive’. Of course, Leftists have explained that apparently ‘Liberty’ and ‘freedom’ are imaginary constructs – along with the concept of money. Illustrating just how far they have gone in losing the plot.

The Authoritarian Socialist Left would like to run everyone’s life for various reasons, social justice, global cooling, or just because they somehow are more intelligent than the rest of us [Just as them]. We of the rational 90% would just like to be ‘left’ alone, we do not care about their ever changing sensibilities over language. We do not care about their repetition of the dangers of global cooling, global warming, Climate change, climate emergency, climate crisis, or whatever it is this week. We don’t care that someone else is making a dollar more than us, the economy is humming along nicely.

Were they truly interested in democracy, Liberty or Progress, the far-Left radical socialists would advocate what works in the real world: Economic freedom. The fact that they want to impose by force a system that has never worked by undemocratic means to the detriment of Liberty should tell us everything we need to know about why they should be rejected and opposed at every turn.
