The Gospel Coalition is one of the most influential advocates of Critical Race Theory to Evangelicals. While they do not daily write articles brazenly advocating the heretical ideology of Cultural Marxism, their podcast network is far more explicit with the organization’s views. Evangelical Dark Web reported in September, 2020 how The Gospel Coalition unveiled Marxist podcast series called “As In Heaven.” This podcast is designed specifically to empower Woke Evangelicals.
Christina Edmondson is a professional race hustler who serves at Calvin College. She joined The Gospel Coalition to rebut common arguments that people make to oppose Critical Race Theory and most specifically Black Lives Matter.
They start off with colorblindness which Edmonson takes not “seeing color” as denying part of people’s identity. Typically being colorblind is meant to denote that a person does not judge on the basis of race, not that they literally cannot see if a person is black or not. She argued that this trope was an overcompensation to a racist era. They used this to then argue that people who are colorblind are practicing a sort of Gnosticism. However, this is projection. Critical Race Theory and Intersectionality are naturally Gnostic ideologies. In postmodernism, there exists a need to sort out people’s experiences and ability to see truth, since truth is not objective. Therefore, Intersectionality ranks people’s “truths” according to their intersections of oppression. In essence, Critical Race Theory and Intersectionality teach that black people have greater insights on race because they are black. This is Ethnic Gnosticism, as Voddie Baucham describes.
All Lives Matter then was the focus. Now, I do not believe that “All Lives Matter” is a good response to “Black Lives Matter.” Edmondson argues that all lives do not matter until black lives matter. Therefore, she is arguing that “Black Lives Matter” is an incremental step towards All Lives Matter. This logic does blow the trite statement of “All Lives Matter” out of the water, which is why I don’t use it. It is vastly superior to deconstruct BLM’s apathy towards Black lives. Black Lives Matter only routinely cares about deaths that can be used to advance a political agenda, that is deaths of black people by police. It does not care about black on black crime, black abortion rates, or lives killed due to BLM riots. But if a criminal is justifiably gunned down by police, they are all over it.
Next Christina Edmondson sought to blame racism for black fatherlessness, arguing we should be looking for the root causes of this issue which she claims are economic opportunities. This is an ahistorical view. Black families were actually much stronger in the United State during periods of time when actual racism prevented several economic opportunities. Edmondson ignores that fact that welfare, drug use, and Democrat policies destroyed Black communities.
I did find myself agreeing with Christian Edmondson that about the stupidity and meaninglessness of the statement “Racism is a sin issue, not a skin issue.” Again this is not an argument I have made. I’ve heard this argument most from Craig Groeschel. So the pastor of America’s largest woke church, apparently is not woke enough!
I am breaking this rebuttal into two parts for the sake of brevity. But one thing that’s clear is that Christina Edmondson is not forthright about her belief that only white people can be racist, but she is very clear that disagreeing with her is racist in part one.
‘The Purge’ by Big Tech targets conservatives, including us
Just when we thought the Covid-19 lockdowns were ending and our ability to stay afloat was improving, censorship reared its ugly head.
For the last few months, NOQ Report, Conservative Playbook, and the American Conservative Movement have appealed to our readers for assistance in staying afloat through Covid-19 lockdowns. The downturn in the economy has limited our ability to generate proper ad revenue just as our traffic was skyrocketing. We had our first sustained stretch of three months with over a million visitors in November, December, and January, but February saw a dip.
It wasn’t just the shortened month. We expected that. We also expected the continuation of dropping traffic from “woke” Big Tech companies like Google, Facebook, and Twitter, but it has actually been much worse than anticipated. Our Twitter account was banned. Both of our YouTube accounts were banned. Facebook “fact-checks” everything we post. Spotify canceled us. Medium canceled us. Apple canceled us. Why? Because we believe in the truth prevailing, and that means we will continue to discuss “taboo” topics.
The 2020 presidential election was stolen. You can’t say that on Big Tech platforms without risking cancellation, but we’d rather get cancelled for telling the truth rather than staying around to repeat mainstream media’s lies. They have been covering it up since before the election and they’ve convinced the vast majority of conservative news outlets that they will be harmed if they continue to discuss voter fraud. We refuse to back down. The truth is the truth.
The lies associated with Covid-19 are only slightly more prevalent than the suppression of valid scientific information that runs counter to the prescribed narrative. We should be allowed to ask questions about the vaccines, for example, as there is ample evidence for concern. One does not have to be an “anti-vaxxer” in order to want answers about vaccines that are still considered experimental and that have a track record in a short period of time of having side-effects, including death. One of our stories about the Johnson & Johnson “vaccine” causing blood clots was “fact-checked” and removed one day before the government hit the brakes on it. These questions and news items are not allowed on Big Tech which is just another reason we are getting canceled.
There are more topics that they refuse to allow. In turn, we refuse to stop discussing them. This is why we desperately need your help. The best way NOQ, CP, and ACM readers can help is to donate. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well. We are on track to be short by about $4100 per month in order to maintain operations.
The second way to help is to become a partner. We’ve strongly considered seeking angel investors in the past but because we were paying the bills, it didn’t seem necessary. Now, we’re struggling to pay the bills. We had 5,657,724 sessions on our website from November, 2020, through February, 2021. Our intention is to elevate that to higher levels this year by focusing on a strategy that relies on free speech rather than being beholden to progressive Big Tech companies.
During that four-month stretch, Twitter and Facebook accounted for about 20% of our traffic. We are actively working on operating as if that traffic is zero, replacing it with platforms that operate more freely such as Gab, Parler, and others. While we were never as dependent on Big Tech as most conservative sites, we’d like to be completely free from them. That doesn’t mean we will block them, but we refuse to be beholden to companies that absolutely despise us simply because of our political ideology.
We’re heading in the right direction and we believe we’re ready talk to patriotic investors who want to not only “get in on the action” but more importantly who want to help America hear the truth. Interested investors should contact me directly with the contact button above.
As the world spirals towards radical progressivism, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report going.
