Fault Lines: The Social Justice Movement and Evangelicalism's Looming Catastrophe by Dr. Voddie T. Baucham, Jr., is the number one bestseller in its category in Amazon as of this writing in early August, 2021. The book was released in April, and yet it already has five thousand customer reviews, 94% of which award the book five-stars. Given that Fault Lines is not receiving the kind of major-media, saturation coverage that a bestseller might expect, many of those thousands of reviews are fueled by enthusiastic word-of-mouth.

Fault Lines deserves its phenomenal success. Don't let its "Evangelical" subtitle fool you. I'm no Evangelical, but I will happily join my five-star review to the thousands of others. Baucham's presentation of the history and current profile of critical theory is accessible to all readers. Even non-Christians can benefit from understanding how the majority faith of Americans is being corrupted. Finally, as a Christian, Baucham offers hope for the future. Even non-Christians can apply some of Baucham's recommendations.

Fault Lines is one of many recent books struggling to take readers by the hand and guide them through our current cultural moment, of pupils suddenly being asked to inform their teachers of their "preferred pronouns," of toppling statues, burning cities, and careers ruined by one suspect utterance. Fault Lines belongs on the same bookshelf as James Lindsay and Helen Pluckrose's Cynical Theories: How Activist Scholarship Made Everything about Race, Gender, and Identity – And Why This Harms Everybody, as well as Douglas Murray's The Madness of Crowds: Gender, Race, and IdentityCynical Theories goes into greater detail on the roots of today's hysteria, and its authors are Christophobic atheists who hold up a vague and unhistorical notion of "The Enlightenment" as our salvation. Douglas Murray, a former Christian and current atheist, appears to despair of any hope; rather, he's given to dire prognostications: "The US is on the brink of Civil War;" Murray has said; the Western world is "standing on the precipice" of cultural annihilation.

Voddie T. Baucham has one up on Lindsey, Pluckrose, and Murray. Yes, Baucham recognizes how bad things are. "The United States is on the verge of a race war, if not a complete cultural meltdown," Baucham predicts. But Baucham offers hope, and he offers healing. He finds both in Christian faith. Again, though, you don't have to be a Christian to benefit from reading Fault Lines.

Fault Lines is very reader-friendly. Lindsey and Pluckrose offer much more detailed and academic surveys of how Marxism's twisted evolution lead to the concept of "microaggressions" and social media videos in which obese women insist that if you aren't sexually attracted to them you are a bigot. Like those authors, Baucham also introduces his reader to influential progenitors of Woke like Antonio Gramsci, Derrick Bell, Kimberle Crenshaw, and Peggy McIntosh, but more briefly. Clearly, Baucham exhibits the Evangelical's zeal to reach the maximum audience with the deepest truths, while never allowing academic jargon to get in the way. This is a book you could understand even if you were reading it in a noisy and crowded subway car. Its ease of reading in no way diminishes its profundity.

Helen Pluckrose, a plump woman, has the courage and integrity to take on the excesses of extremist feminists and fat activists. Murray is a gay man who critiques extreme LGBT activists. Baucham is a black man, and a descendant of slaves. He grew up in the hood and he currently serves as dean of theology at the African Christian University in Zambia. He tackles Black Lives Matter and critical race theory.

Yes, Baucham has a Ph.D. and is a preacher and professor. But our Woke overlords judge qualifications not on training or intelligence but on identity, and on the grounds of identity, Baucham is qualified to stand head-to-head with Ibram X. Kendi and Robin DiAngelo. Baucham devotes 31 pages of his 251-page book to his own biography. Baucham has traced his maternal ancestry back to slaves in Alabama, Virginia, and Texas. He traced his paternal ancestry to a slave in North Carolina. He was born to a teenaged mother who married his teenaged father in a "shotgun wedding." The marriage didn't last and Baucham has no memories of being in an intact family. For decades, that lack of a father and a family life "haunted" him. His cousin Jamal was shot to death by a fellow drug dealer while he was selling crack. His absent father freebased cocaine in Baucham's presence, was shot five times in a crack-related incident, and eventually succumbed to the damage cocaine did to his heart.

"I grew up poor, without a father, and surrounded by drugs, gangs, violence, and disfunction in one of the toughest urban environments imaginable … I didn't just survive, I thrived! Not because of government programs or white people 'doing the work of anti-racism'" but because of his mother. Baucham credits his single mother with keeping him on the straight and narrow. She did this by impressing upon him a sense of agency and accountability. He was always certain of two things: "My mother loved me, and if I got out of line, she'd kill me." To conform to peer pressure from his black "homeboys," Baucham purposely underperformed in school. Baucham's mother visited his school and got him back on track. Young Voddie once wore a t-shirt featuring images of Malcolm X and Elijah Mohammad. At the time, "I was more black than Christian." In fact, his mother was a Buddhist and he was raised as a Buddhist. He converted to Christianity after contact with a Campus Crusade for Christ staffer.

Moving to Africa affected Baucham deeply. "Most Africans would give all they had to get to America." He realized he didn't have to, because he was American. He also realized that his ancestors were enslaved by fellow Africans. Those sold west were relatively lucky. "Thank God they were not sold to the Arabs! The Arab slave trade lasted more than thirteen centuries and ... few Africans sold to the Arabs even survived." Life in Africa taught Baucham that "culture does matter … not all cultures are equal … Christian culture has produced the highest levels of freedom and prosperity … in the world … transforming culture is a laudable and worthwhile goal."

These are remarkable statements that defy Woke at every turn. Baucham rejects cultural relativism that says that, say, a culture where girls undergo FGM is no worse than cultures that do not practice such mutilation. He refuses to join in Woke demonization of the West. And he says that "transforming culture is a laudable and worthwhile goal." Many on the left condemn calls for conforming to Western civilization, capitalism, or middle-class values as "imperialism." Rather, the larger culture must change to accommodate minority culture. If black kids are not doing well in school, that is because of racism, and the racist culture must be dismantled. Objective truth and the scientific method are denounced as white supremacist. Black children are presumed to possess superiority at music, sports, and storytelling about their own life experience. These "Afrocentric" skills must become the new standard, in place of "white" excellence at math, science, or literature.

"Our pursuit of justice must be characterized by a pursuit of truth," Baucham says, citing Leviticus 19:15. With that and other Bible verses in mind, Baucham interrogates the many lies of Black Lives Matter, a movement founded on lies. Baucham is fearless; his sentences advance like a warrior marching into battle. His weaponry consists of facts. Never does he quiver or hesitate or apologize, as some white critics might do, for fear of appearing "racist." Baucham recognizes that there is in fact nothing racist about truth. Baucham cites the research on police shootings published by Roland G. Fryer, Jr, the National Academy of Sciences, David J. Johnson, and the Washington Post. There is no epidemic of racist white police officers killing unarmed black men. In fact "it is white people who are actually shot at disproportionately high rates when the number of interactions with police is tallied up."

BLM counters that numbers alone do not tell the full story, because, they say, white cops murder black people under circumstances that would never result in the killing of a white suspect. On June 11, 2020, John McWhorter published "Racist Police Violence Reconsidered" in QuilletteQuillette is a fine publication, but this important piece should have appeared in McWhorter's home publication, The Atlantic, which has a larger circulation. Perhaps it was too controversial – that is, too truthful – for The Atlantic. McWhorter cites case after case in which whites died in police custody in circumstances that parallel the death of blacks in police custody, starting with a comparison between the deaths of George Floyd and Tony Timpa. Baucham makes the same sort of comparisons. Baucham cites numerous whites, adults and children, who died after brandishing fake guns, as did the African American child, Tamir Rice. Baucham similarly walks through misperceptions around the police shootings of Philando Castile, Michael Brown, and Breonna Taylor.

Baucham says that antiracism is a new cult, in competition with, and infecting, Christianity. Like Christianity, antiracism has its own versions of sin, law, gospel, martyrs, priests, means of atonement, new birth, liturgy, canon, theologians, and catechism. Baucham offers examples of each of these. Antiracism is unlike Christianity in that "antiracism offers no salvation;" only "perpetual penance" and "incurable disease." One thing antiracism does not have, does not value, and indeed condemns, is objective fact arrived at through traditional scholarly routes like the scientific method. "The quest for objectivity is tantamount to a quest for white supremacy." Baucham mentions one influential Woke classic, Peggy McIntosh's 1989 essay on "white privilege." Baucham points out that McIntosh's exercise "is a classic example of grievance studies in that it was based entirely on assumptions, anecdotes, and personal observations, and completely devoid of scholarly research."

The religion of antiracism directly contradicts Christianity in multiple ways, and yet Evangelicals are abandoning Christianity and embracing Woke. Except for passing mentions, Fault Lines does not mention Catholicism, but Catholics, too, are abandoning central Christian teachings in favor of critical race theory. America, the Jesuit magazine, is leading the way, for example hereSojourners is a prominent Christian magazine. It was founded by Jim Wallis, a self-described Evangelical Christian. Unless they confess to "the sin of white privilege," Wallis wrote, "white Christians will never be free." Baucham contrasts Wallis' fiat with Christian scripture, which declares that Jesus Christ frees those who believe in him and repent of their sins.

Baucham points out that antiracism concocts a Kafka trap, that is a rhetorical prison where no matter what any white person says or does, his speech and action will be interpreted to "prove" that he is a white supremacist. Concepts like "white fragility" and "white equilibrium" are tools in this trap. Anyone who disagrees with any aspect of antiracism is met with "That's your white fragility speaking" if they are white, or "That is your internalized racism," if they are not white.

Black people's "lived experience," recounted in anecdotes, is sacrosanct and must be honored, and never examined. Baucham calls this "Ethnic Gnosticism," that is, the belief that being a member of a certain ethnic group endows that group member with knowledge that no one outside the group can ever lay claim to. Ethnic Gnosticism insists that there is a "black perspective" that all black people share. If a black person disagrees with Woke, he is "broken." Baucham, because he criticizes antiracism, is "broken." He is not an authentic black person. The people declaring that he is not an authentic black person are themselves often white. The Woke similarly condemn, Baucham reports, black conservatives like John McWhorter and Thomas Sowell.

Be the Bridge is a self-described "non-profit organization." Non-profit or not, its founder Latasha Morrison has done quite well. She is represented by the same talent agency that represents Olympian Simone Biles, singer Alanis Morissette, and award-winning journalist Bob Woodward. Be the Bridge hosts an online store where one can purchase a $299, eight-course "Whiteness Intensive" indoctrination "taught by a diverse group of Be the Bridge educators;" a $40 "anti-racist hoodie;" and a free webinar entitled "A Discussion on [sic] Self-Care, Lament, & Trauma for People of Color." On its Facebook page, Be the Bridge offers a self-description. "We inspire and equip ambassadors of racial reconciliation to build a community of people who share a common goal of creating healthy dialogue about race."

According to one Amazon review of her bestselling book, Morrison, in a directly un-Biblical manner (see Ezekiel 18:1-4), holds all whites guilty for sins committed by other, long dead white people. Conversely, she does not hold blacks guilty even for contemporary crimes against non-black people, or against their own kin. "She holds Whites' skin color against them and calls them privileged … plenty of white people have not been born into privileged homes and have been labeled derogatory terms such as 'white trash.' Where is her call for Blacks to grieve black gang violence, violent crimes done against non-black people, or the cost of the abandonment of black children by their fathers that leads to societal evil affecting all people? Did I miss where she called for the Blacks whose ancestors were slave owners to lament over their part in slavery? Or for all the African-Americans whose ancestors played a part in selling/trading their countrymen?"

Baucham says that Be the Bridge it is a "go-to resource" for Evangelicals. Baucham, like the above-quoted Amazon reviewer, faults Be the Bridge for an unbiblical view of guilt. "Morrison's work … is replete with references to generational guilt." Baucham quotes the "rules" for white Be the Bridge members. Whites must never speak to non-whites as if they, the white people, are equal. They must always speak and act as inferior, submissive, guilty, and tainted. They must not share their understanding, they must assume themselves guilty no matter what their intentions are, they must never refer to objective facts, and they must remain silent and passive when being publicly cursed, insulted and accused of racism. Truth in advertising demands that Latasha Morrison retitle her work, "Be the Punching Bag." Indeed, Be the Bridge commandments for how white people are allowed to behave are reminiscent of requirements for the accused at Maoist struggle sessions.

Baucham mentions Southern Baptist Theological Seminary professor and author Jarvis J. Williams. In a shocking YouTube video, Williams claims or insinuates that white people have never been lynched, that white people invented slavery, that white people were never enslaved, and that the Confederate flag can mean only one thing to those who brandish it: white terror against black and brown people. Williams said he was so afraid when he saw a Confederate flag in Tennessee that he had to leave the area. In fact if Williams were open to actual facts, I could show him archival photographs of lynched whites, I could show him numbers proving that these lynchings of white Italian and other immigrants, including German immigrant Robert Prager were no one-offs, that white people have in fact been enslaved, in their millions, by Muslims, that there were white slaves in the US, see, for example, here, that the indenture system of whites was slightly better than, but in many respects comparable to, slavery, and that there are abundant images of African Americans wearing, flying, or otherwise embracing the Confederate flag, which suggests that not all black people interpret it as he does. One response to Williams' comments on YouTube reads, "I’m Hispanic  and brown when I see a confederate flag I think Dixie, a war that was won for freedom, the dukes of hazard and gone with the wind! Im not offended never have never will ! I recognize history and learn from it! I don’t dwell in it !" Finally, it is very disturbing to hear a Christian preacher insist that no whites were ever lynched, given the notorious history of the lynching of the Jewish man Leo Frank.

Baucham details behind-the-scenes politicking around critical theory and the 2019 Southern Baptist Convention. Concerned Baptists put forward a resolution on critical race theory and intersectionality. The original document boldly asserted that "critical race theory and intersectionality are founded upon unbiblical presuppositions descended from Marxist theories and categories, and therefore are inherently opposed to the Scriptures as the true center of Christian union." The rest of the document was equally forceful and clear. Politicking watered the document down and that watered down document was all the public saw. Baucham fearlessly names the names of those who promoted Woke at the expense of the Bible, and engaged in what he calls a "deliberate act of duplicity." It is never more clear than in this account why Baucham titled his book Fault Lines. Clearly, his own life will be quite challenging because of this book's forthrightness. As in the wider society, congregants at Christian churches are being separated by an ideological divide as difficult to mend as the fault line ripped into the earth after a large quake.

Baucham speaks to black people as his own mother spoke to him. Baucham's mother emphasized personal responsibility. Baucham, too, emphasizes personal responsibility. Like so many other conservatives, he cites the importance of fathers. He also emphasizes the importance of education and he is not afraid to talk about the statistics that indicate that African Americans commit a disproportionate number of violent crimes, and that most of those crimes are committed against fellow African Americans. Baucham points out the folly of many voices, like that of Lebron James, who insist that African Americans are afraid to leave their homes because white people might hunt and kill them. Rather, African Americans are much more likely to commit a violent crime against a white or Asian person than vice versa. "Black people are overwhelmingly more likely to victimize white people than the other way around … a police officer is 18.5 times more likely to be killed by a black assailant than an unarmed black man is to be killed by a cop." Black people themselves support the presence of police in their communities, and black voters and black politicians participated in tough-on-crime measures during the crack epidemic that devastated black communities.

Baucham believes that the deadliest destroyer of black lives in the US is abortion. "Though black women make up less than 13 percent of the population, they account for 35 percent of all abortions. In major cities like New York, Philadelphia, and Los Angeles, more black babies are aborted than born … nearly 80 percent of Planned Parenthood's abortion clinics are in minority neighborhoods."

Again, Baucham does offer hope. His hope is distinctively Christian, and it entails features that used to be part of everyday life in the West: repentance, forgiveness, starting anew, a belief in progress, a belief that all of us were created by one loving, creator God, and that we are all connected by that shared creation. Tom Holland, author of Dominion, and Douglas Murray are both atheists, and they are both astute observers who recognize that society needs routes out of resentment, recrimination, and the lust for revenge, and Christianity provided those routes. Baucham, a Calvinist, does not expect his every reader to become Christian. We must, therefore, find some way to respect these Christians traditions in a post-Christian society. Otherwise, the Pagan tribalism that Baucham labels "ethnic Gnosticism" and the no-exit, permanent struggle session mandated by critical race theory will destroy the bonds that hold Americans together.

"There can be no reconciliation without justice," Black Lives Matter claims. Baucham replies, and the all caps are in his original reply, "YES! AND THE DEATH OF CHRIST IS THAT JUSTICE! … Antiracism offers endless penance, judgment, and fear … I am not an African. I am not an African American. I am an American, and I wouldn't want to be anything else. America doesn't owe me anything. America has blessed me beyond measure. If anything I owe America. More importantly, I owe my Savior, and, by extension, I owe my brothers and sisters in Christ." What can one say except "Amen"?

Democrats Want to Hate Their Way Out of the Pandemic When identity politics is your answer to everything.

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical Left and Islamic terrorism.

"As Virus Cases Rise, Another Contagion Spreads Among the Vaccinated: Anger," the New York Times hisses. "Vaccinated people are ready for normalcy — and angry at the unvaccinated," the Washington Post jeers.

"It's O.K. to be mad at people who refuse to get vaccinated," America Magazine reassures.

Hating people is a hell of a prescription for a medical crisis, but to the Left all problems are political problems. And they deal with political problems by hating twice as hard as ever.

Our media, like that of most totalitarian countries, exists to tell regime loyalists whom to be angry at today while distracting them from the regime’s latest disaster. The American Left only knows and understands identity politics. Its view of the world is rooted in the same Marxist theories that made the Soviet Union and every Communist government so dysfunctional, but the need to juggle the intersectional dynamics of multiculturalism has made it especially insane.

Anyone who wants to understand America’s racial divisions need only look at the perverse skill with which leftists divided the country between the vaccinated and the unvaccinated in less than a year. In a short amount of time people had been taught to hate each other and to form deep divides over an issue that hadn’t even been on their minds last summer.

If the Left can do that with a shot, is it any wonder they were able to do it with skin color?

America’s Left has become an identity politics generator, literally creating new identities overnight (the average number of gender identities went from 48 in 2019, to 56 in 2020, to 64 today), to compete in a packed victimhood Olympics whose only purpose is political power.

The Left has succeeded so well that all of the country’s political discourse is about rival claims of victimhood and dueling accusations of oppression. The identity politics generator works so well that in under a year a new identity can be up and running, and ready to register victims and demand political power to repress the other side of their binary identities. But all this does is give the Left an exciting new way to seize power and posture as the victims this week.

Faced with a pandemic, the Left built a new political identity around masks and vaccines.

That’s what it does with every challenge or crisis. When all you have is a hammer, every problem is a nail and when all you have is identity politics, every problem is identitarian.

And every solution manufactures the same cliched binary identities, victims and oppressors, the enlightened and the reactionaries, and yokes them to the same tired narrative which organizes the latter against the former. The speed with which the Left turned personal medical decisions into an identity shows how the artificial assembly line of its identity politics really works.

Diversity isn’t really very diverse. Multiculturalism is really a single political culture. Identity politics offers the same product with a different coat of paint from the same identity factory.

Identity politics is a revolutionary tool, organizing everything from fifth columns to coalitions to seize political power, but revolutions solve the problem of who is in power, not real problems.

Revolutionary regimes are great at revolutions and bad at everything else.

The Democrats are great at identity politics and bad at pandemics. They excel at taking over institutions, rigging elections, and building narratives in which they’re the victims. They just don’t know how to do anything else. During the revolutionary phase, problems don’t need solving, only exploiting. As Lenin reportedly said, “the worse, the better.” A pandemic, a wildfire, tainted water, or an economic collapse is just another opportunity to churn out narratives declaring that identity politics groups have been hit hardest by the disaster before seizing power in their name.

This works about half the time. The half when Democrats are out of power. Revolutions work best when you’re not already on the throne and trying to blame someone else for your mess.

Power and identity politics can exploit a pandemic, but they can’t meaningfully address it. Much as the Soviets couldn’t address agriculture, and China can’t fix its environmental disasters, the Biden administration and its leftist allies lack the intellectual tools to cope with the problem.

Communist regimes reduced all problems to class warfare, declared that they had eliminated classes, and then blamed problems on domestic saboteurs or denied that they existed at all.

The Democrats blamed the pandemic on the Trump administration. After taking power, they began blaming Trump supporters. Unable to deliver on their promises, they doubled down on identity politics as their way of evading responsibility for the job they claimed they wanted.

But lefties want the job, they don’t want the responsibility.

Fixing problems is dirty and unrewarding work that requires humility, patience, and a willingness to listen. These are not the attributes of a radical movement of egotistical theoreticians who use identity politics to trick people into letting them test out their theories and then when their theories fail in the real world, pivot back to identity politics to blame others for their failures.

The revolutions keep coming, but utopia never arrives.

The Left interacts with reality through a series of abstract constructs filtered through an ideological matrix defined by social relations. This is an unfit model for solving anything except social problems and hasn’t even seen any success there. Reducing the problems of a vast universe, or even a planet, to social injustice is the laughably stupid approach of our elites.

An ideology that blames everything from forest fires to viral outbreaks on social injustice foolishly treats human social relations as the greatest force in the universe. Elites who embrace these ideas are announcing their inability to grapple with problems outside social relations.

Instead of dealing with the problems, they attach them to another identity politics group.

Then they blame some other group for their own inability to grapple with the problem. Democrat politicians and the media have blamed the pandemic on church attendees, Chassidic Jews, spring breakers, surfers, Trump supporters, and an endless list of out-group scapegoats.

Every instance of scapegoating has been undone by their own hypocrisy from the French Laundry to Black Lives Matter riots to the rejection of vaccine mandates by their own health care and teachers’ unions. And Americans are growing tired of their cynical blame game.

Democrats and their media are encouraging Americans to hate each other as they have since the very beginning of the pandemic and the very beginning of their radicalization as a party.

Every problem is met with identity politics and hate.

The Left wants Americans to blame everyone for their problems except the ones in power.

“We are men and women created in the image of God, not guinea pigs or lab rats.”

LifeSite News sponsored an online conference with the Truth for Health Foundation featuring brave “scientists, religious leaders, attorneys and physicians” and others who are standing together fight the “dark cloud of censorship,” as explained by Texas Internist and Cardiologist Dr. Peter McCullough.

Some of the highlights during the presentation:

  • Dr. Elizabeth Lee Vliet kicked off the program, saying that “We are silent no more”.
  • Dr. Peter McCullough emphasized that Americans have not yet been given a safety briefing on the Covid vaccines. Dr. McCullough highlighted this fact as well during an interview with RAIR Foundation USA earlier this week.
  • Pastor Stephen Broden stated that churches will be teaming with the Truth for Health Foundation to get the truth to congregants with their initiative “Medicine and Ministry United“.
  • Former Pfizer VP Dr. Michael Yeadon made powerful statements about the potential effects of the mRNA vaccine on fertility in women. “The authorities are not giving us full information about the risks of these products.”
  • Attorney Thomas Renz, who works with America’s Frontline Doctors, claims that so-called “breakthrough cases” (those diagnosed with Covid after receiving the vaccine) account for “40 percent or more of the [hospital] admissions.”
  • Sister Deidre Byrne, who is also board-certified in family medicine and general surgery, is exasperated that citizens are being coerced to to take a vaccine meant to address a treatable virus with “a mortality rate near zero in children and healthy adults.”
  • German immunologist Dr. Sucharit Bhakdi said that the coronavirus is “less dangerous than seasonal flu.”
  • Dr. Jose Trasancos, CEO of Children of God for Life, stressed that the vaccine coercion elitists have disregarded safe, effective coronavirus treatments. Dr. Trasancos expressed sadness that many so-called religious organizations have joined to push the vaccine.
  • Pamela Popper of Wellness Forum Health reaffirmed that this period has been one of medical tyranny. Ms. Popper invited citizens to join her activist organization, Make America Free Again.
  • Reverend Bill Cook, Founder of America’s Black Robe Regiment criticized the pandemic for being based on false data. Reverend Bill Cook powerfully called for the mRNA vaccines to be pulled immediately.
  • Renowned Pathologist Dr. Roger Hodkinson expressed his outrage in no uncertain terms over the politicized pandemic which he referred to as “pure propaganda.” The 2019 coronavirus is “nothing more than a bad seasonal flu” and “nothing was needed except “good old common sense and early treatment.” RAIR Foundation USA was privileged to have interviewed Dr. Roger Hodkinson on several recent occasions (see herehere and here).

NATURAL NEWS: YOUR KIND aren’t welcome here~Unvaccinated people now treated worse than Blacks in the Jim Crow era as vaccine pushers turn to bigotry and segregation


SEE: https://naturalnews.com/2021-08-05-your-kind-arent-welcome-here-unvaccinated-people-now-treated-worse-than-blacks-bigotry-racism.html;

(Natural News) It is morally wrong to dehumanize and disrespect people because of the color of their skin, or for being gay, or for being physically disabled, and so on. In America, we build access ramps so that people in wheelchairs can have access to restaurants and public buildings. But now, thanks to the bigoted, racist, anti-freedom vaccine zealots, Black people who refuse to take part in the government’s vaccine medical experiment will be told, “You people aren’t welcome here.”

The appropriate question is: What do you mean, YOU PEOPLE?

In New York City, Mayor de Blasio has just announced that restaurants, gymnasiums, and soon grocery stores and public buildings will discriminate against the unvaccinated like a scene ripped right out of the Jim Crow era of racism and bigotry. The pharma-funded media is openly calling for unvaccinated people to be “shamed” and “shunned,” actually encouraging vaccinated people to dehumanize others who refuse to take the deadly jabs that are now linked to at least 20,595 deaths and 1.9 million injuries across the USA and the EU.

To see how insane this government-sanctioned discrimination really is, just take the recent announcement by de Blasio and replace “vaccinated” with “White” and “unvaccinated” with “Black,” and it turns out like this:

Bill de Blasio: If you’re White, you’ll have the key, you can open the door. But if you’re Black, unfortunately, you won’t be able to participate in most things. That’s the point we’re trying to get across, it’s time people see Whiteness as literally necessary to living a good, and full and healthy life. It will require Whiteness for workers and customers in indoor dining, in indoor fitness facilities, and indoor entertainment facilities. The ONLY way to patronize these establishments indoors will be if they’re White. The same in terms of work.

Can you imagine the outcry if de Blasio declared that Blacks could not have jobs, or visit restaurants, or go to the gym because of who they were? It would be immediately decried as a policy rooted in hate and racism, and those attempting to carry out such policies would be criminally investigated by the DOJ.

But announce the same discrimination against unvaccinated people, and suddenly all the hate and bigotry is celebrated by the media, the government and Big Tech. Because hatred is endorsed by all those groups when it helps compel people to take Big Pharma’s depopulation shots. Never make the mistake of believing that this vaccine push is rooted in love or even a desire for public health. It’s all rooted in hatred, racism and raw bigotry.

In a nation where it would be abhorrent to deny someone access to a restaurant because they’re gay, trans, Black, female or physically disabled, we now see mayors literally encouraging discrimination based on vaccine status. This makes those government leaders bigots and racist since Black Americans have the least percentage of vaccinated people (about 26%) versus other races. So the war against the unvaccinated is, not surprisingly, actually a war on Blacks, now being waged by the very same lunatics (like Dr. Leana Wen) who have been running the Planned Parenthood genocidal attack on Black babies for generations.

Many people refusing the vaccines have been previously vaccine-injured, meaning they have a medical disability… so why is it okay to discriminate against the medically disabled?

What’s even more disturbing in all this is the fact that many people have made a conscious choice to avoid vaccines because of previous vaccine injuries or allergic reactions. This means they have a medical disability that prohibits them from taking additional vaccines without risking serious adverse reactions or death. Yet in a society where it’s illegal to discriminate against people with physical disabilities, it’s now being openly encouraged to discriminate against those with medical disabilities.

It’s the equivalent of a restaurant owner in New York City tearing down the wheelchair ramps and posting a sign, “Handicapped not welcome here” … which would be abhorrent (and illegal).

Or imagine if a fitness gym set up shop in New York City and posted a sign, “No lesbians allowed.” They would be burned down by angry lesbians wielding Molotov cocktails, pitchforks and torches.

Yet Mayor de Blasio essentially just told every NYC business to post a sign that says, “Unvaccinated aren’t welcome here,” thereby discriminating against people for who they are.

In a world where the left-wing media repeatedly tells us, “love wins,” when it comes to vaccine obedience, hatred is the real policy of those who currently hold power.

In America’s left-wing culture, you can be a pedophile and still be excused by the media.

Or you can be a trans female felon who’s actually a biological man raping women in the women’s prison, and you will be celebrated by the media. You can literally murder your own newborn child in New York, right after it’s born alive, and be applauded by the media. You can be almost any insane thing you want, but you’re not allowed to be unvaccinated because on that issue alone, you must comply or be destroyed.

Since all vaccines have expiration dates in vaccine passport apps, any person’s privileged status will end if they don’t continue to comply

Vaccine passports used in New York assign expiration dates to vaccine injections. Your “freedom” expires in one year, based on current vaccines, and with Moderna and Pfizer now pushing “booster” shots, those will likely expire in just a few months. Big Pharma is pushing for monthly spike protein injections, which means vaccine passport apps will have people on a short leash: Keep complying with the monthly bioweapons injections, or you’ll lose your freedom and plunge into the “unvaccinated” status, even if you’ve taken all the vaccines so far.

This means, incredibly, that even those who have taken all the hyped vaccines can very quickly find themselves categorized as “unvaccinated” and watch their “key to the city” privileges vanish.

The lesson in all this? Complying with medical tyranny will never bring you freedom. The only freedom comes from saying NO to tyranny in the first place.

CDC Discusses Confinement, Internment Camps for Those at High Risk of China Virus


SEE: https://thenewamerican.com/cdc-discusses-confinement-internment-camps-for-those-at-high-risk-of-china-virus/;

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

The Centers for Disease Control is openly discussing internment camps for individuals with a high risk of contracting the China Virus.

Although a document at the CDC website appears to refer to settings outside the United States, the suggestion that governments should erect safe zones to quarantine healthy but at-risk people should alarm Americans already faced with mask and vaccine mandates.

In New York City, for instance, hard-left Mayor Bill de Blasio has closed some public venues to those who aren’t vaccinated, and the state legislature has passed a bill to indefinitely arrest and contain those who don’t have the contagious disease. 

It’s a short step from those measures to mandated confinement of the type CDC contemplates.

Green Zones

Dated July 26, the CDC document listed under “Global COVID-19” discusses “green zones” in which those at “high risk” of contracting the virus will be housed. CDC’s euphemism for the internment is “shielding.” The goal is to “protect high-risk populations from disease and death.”

Though “this approach has never been documented,” the agency says, “considerations are based on current evidence known about the transmission and severity of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) and may need to be revised as more information becomes available.”8/5/2021

Interim Operational Considerations for Implementing the Shielding Approach to Prevent COVID-19 Infections in Humanitarian Settings | CDC
Interim Operational Considerations for Implementing the
Shielding Approach
to Prevent COVID-19 Infections in
Humanitarian Settings
Updated July 26, 2020
This document presents considerations from the perspective of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) for
implementing the shielding approach in humanitarian settings as outlined in guidance documents focused on camps,
displaced populations and low-resource settings.
This approach has never been documented and has raised questions and
concerns among humanitarian partners who support response activities in these settings. The purpose of this document is to
highlight potential implementation challenges of the shielding approach from CDC’s perspective and guide thinking around
implementation in the absence of empirical data. Considerations are based on current evidence known about the
transmission and severity of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) and may need to be revised as more information becomes
available. Please check the
CDC website
periodically for updates.
What is the Shielding Approach?
The shielding approach aims to reduce the number of severe COVID-19 cases by limiting contact between individuals at
higher risk of developing severe disease (“high-risk”) and the general population (“low-risk”). High-risk individuals would be
temporarily relocated to safe or “green zones” established at the household, neighborhood, camp/sector or community level
depending on the context and setting.
They would have minimal contact with family members and other low-risk residents.
Current evidence indicates that older adults and people of any age who have serious underlying medical conditions are at
higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19.
In most humanitarian settings, older population groups make up a small
percentage of the total population.
 For this reason, the shielding approach suggests physically separating high-risk
individuals from the general population to prioritize the use of the limited available resources and avoid implementing long-
term containment measures among the general population.
In theory, shielding may serve its objective to protect high-risk populations from disease and death. However, implementation
of the approach necessitates strict adherence
, to protocol. Inadvertent introduction of the virus into a green zone may
result in rapid transmission among the most vulnerable populations the approach is trying to protect.
A summary of the shielding approach described by Favas is shown in Table 1. See
Guidance for the prevention of COVID-19
infections among high-risk individuals in low-resource displaced and camp and camp-like settings
 for full details.
Table 1: Summary of the Shielding Approach
Movement/ Interactions
Household (HH) Level:
A specic room/area designated for high-risk individuals
who are physically isolated from other HH members.
Low-risk HH members should not enter the green zone. If
entry is necessary, it should be done only by healthy
individuals after washing hands and using face coverings.
Interactions should be at a safe distance (approx. 2
meters). Minimum movement of high-risk individuals
outside the green zone. Low-risk HH members continue to
follow social distancing and hygiene practices outside the
Interim Operational Considerations for Implementing the Shielding Approach to Prevent COVID-19 Infections in Humanitarian Settings | CDC
Neighborhood Level:
A designated shelter/group of shelters (max 5-10
households), within a small camp or area where high-risk
members are grouped together. Neighbors “swap”
households to accommodate high-risk individuals.
Same as above
Camp/Sector Level:
A group of shelters such as schools, community buildings
within a camp/sector (max 50 high-risk individuals per
single green zone) where high-risk individuals are
physically isolated together.
One entry point is used for the exchange of food, supplies,
etc. A meeting area is used for residents and visitors to
interact while practicing physical distancing (2 meters). No
movement into or outside the green zone.
Operational Considerations
The shielding approach requires several prerequisites for effective implementation. Several are addressed, including access
to healthcare and the provision of food. However, there are several prerequisites which require additional considerations. Table 2
presents the prerequisites or suggestions as stated in the shielding guidance document (column 1) and CDC presents
additional questions and considerations alongside these prerequisites (column 2).
Table 2: Suggested Prerequisites per the shielding documents and CDC’s Operational Considerations for Implementation
Suggested Prerequisites
*As stated in the shielding document*
Considerations as suggested by CDC
Each green zone has a dedicated latrine/bathing
facility for high-risk individuals
The shielding approach advises against any new
facility construction to establish green zones;
however, few settings will have existing shelters or
communal facilities with designated latrines/bathing
facilities to accommodate high-risk individuals. In
these settings, most latrines used by HHs are located
outside the home and often shared by multiple HHs.
If dedicated facilities are available, ensure safety
measures such as proper lighting,
handwashing/hygiene infrastructure, maintenance
and disinfection of latrines.
Ensure facilities can accommodate high-risk
individuals with disabilities, children and separate
genders at the neighborhood/camp level.
To minimize external contact, each green zone
should include able-bodied high-risk individuals
capable of caring for residents who have disabilities
or are less mobile.  Otherwise, designate low-risk
individuals for these tasks, preferably who have
recovered from confirmed COVID-19 and are
assumed to be immune.
This may be difficult to sustain, especially if the
caregivers are also high risk. As caregivers may often
will be family members, ensure that this strategy is
socially or culturally acceptable.
Currently, we do not know if prior infection confers
The green zone and living areas for high-risk
residents should be aligned with minimum
humanitarian (SPHERE) standards.
The shielding approach requires strict adherence to
infection, prevention and control (IPC) measures.
They require, uninterrupted availability of soap,
water, hygiene/cleaning supplies, masks or cloth face
coverings etc for all individuals
in green zones
Interim Operational Considerations for Implementing the Shielding Approach to Prevent COVID-19 Infections in Humanitarian Settings | CDC
coverings, etc. for all individuals in green zones.
Thus, it is necessary to ensure minimum public
health standards
are maintained and possibly
supplemented to decrease the risk of other
outbreaks outside of COVID-19. Attaining and
maintaining minimum SPHERE
standards is difficult
in these settings for the general
 Users should consider that provision
of services and supplies to high-risk individuals could
be at the expense of low-risk residents, putting them
at increased risk for other outbreaks.
Monitor and evaluate the implementation of the
shielding approach.
Monitoring protocols will need to be developed for
each type of green zone.
Dedicated staff need to be identified to monitor each
green zone. Monitoring includes both adherence to
protocols and potential adverse effects or outcomes
due to isolation and stigma. It may be necessary to
assign someone within the green zone, if feasible, to
minimize movement in/out of green zones.
Men and women, and individuals with tuberculosis
(TB), severe immunodeficiencies, or dementia should
be isolated separately
Multiple green zones would be needed to achieve
this level of separation, each requiring additional
inputs/resources. Further considerations include
challenges of accommodating dierent ethnicities,
socio-cultural groups, or religions within one setting.
Community acceptance and involvement in the
design and implementation
Even with community involvement, there may be a
risk of stigmatization.
 Isolation/separation from
family members, loss of freedom and personal
interactions may require additional psychosocial
support structures/systems. See section on
additional considerations below.
High-risk minors should be accompanied into
isolation by a single caregiver who will also be
considered a green zone resident in terms of
movements and contacts with those outside the
green zone.
Protection measures are critical to implementation.
Ensure there is appropriate, adequate, and
acceptable care of other minors or individuals with
disabilities or mental health conditions who remain
in the HH if separated from their primary caregiver.
Green zone shelters should always be kept clean.
Residents should be provided with the necessary
cleaning products and materials to clean their living
High-risk individuals will be responsible for cleaning
and maintaining their own living space and facilities.
This may not be feasible for persons with disabilities
or decreased mobility.
 Maintaining hygiene
conditions in communal facilities is difficult during
non-outbreak settings.
 consequently it may be
necessary to provide additional human resource
Green zones should be more spacious in terms of
shelter area per capita than the surrounding
camp/sector, even at the cost of greater crowding of
low-risk people.
Ensure that targeting high-risk individuals does not
negate mitigation measures among low-risk
individuals (physical distancing in markets or water
points, where feasible, etc.). Differences in space
based on risk status may increase the potential risk
of exposure among the rest of the low-risk residents
and maybe unacceptable or impracticable,
Interim Operational Considerations for Implementing the Shielding Approach to Prevent COVID-19 Infections in Humanitarian Settings | CDC
considering space limitations and overcrowding in
many settings.
Additional Considerations
The shielding approach outlines the general “logistics” of implementation –who, what, where, how. However, there may be
additional logistical challenges to implementing these strategies as a result of unavailable commodities, transport restrictions,
limited sta capacity and availability to meet the increased needs. The approach does not address the potential emotional,
social/cultural, psychological impact for separated individuals nor for the households with separated members. Additional
considerations to address these challenges are presented below.
Population characteristics and demographics
Consideration: The number of green zones required may be greater than anticipated, as they are based on the total number
of high-risk individuals, disease categories, and the socio-demographics of the area and not just the proportion of elderly
Explanation: Older adults represent a small percentage of the population in many camps in humanitarian settings
(approximately 3-5%
), however in some humanitarian settings more than one-quarter of the population may fall under high
risk categories
based on underlying medical conditions which may increase a person’s risk for severe COVID-19 illness
which include chronic kidney disease, obesity, serious heart conditions, sickle cell disease, and type 2 diabetes. Additionally,
many camps and settlements host multiple nationalities which may require additional separation, for example, Kakuma
Refugee Camp in Kenya accommodates refugees from 19 countries.
Timeline considerations
Consideration: Plan for an extended duration of implementation time, at least 6 months.
Explanation: The shielding approach proposes that green zones be maintained until one of the following circumstances
arises: (i) sufficient hospitalization capacity is established; (ii) effective vaccine or therapeutic options become widely available;
or (iii) the COVID-19 epidemic affecting the population subsides.
Given the limited resources and healthcare available to populations in humanitarian settings prior to the pandemic, it is
unlikely sufficient hospitalization capacity (beds, personal protective equipment, ventilators, and sta) will be achievable
during widespread transmission. The national capacity in many of the countries where these settings are located (e.g., Chad,
Myanmar, and Syria) are limited. Resources may become quickly overwhelmed during the peak of transmission and may not be
accessible to the emergency affected populations.
Vaccine trials are underway, but with no definite timeline. Reaching the suppression phase where the epidemic subsides can
take several months and cases may resurge in a second or even third wave. Herd immunity (the depletion of susceptible
people) for COVID-19 has not been demonstrated to date. It is also unclear if an infected person develops immunity and the
duration of potential immunity is unknown. Thus, contingency plans to account for a possibly extended operational timeline
are critical.
Other logistical considerations
Consideration: Plan to identify additional resources and outline supply chain mechanisms to support green zones.
Explanation: The implementation and operation of green zones requires strong coordination among several sectors which
may require substantial additional resources:  supplies and sta to maintain these spaces – shelters, IPC, water, sanitation,
and hygiene (WASH), non-food items (NFIs) (beds, linens, dishes/utensils, water containers), psychosocial support,
monitors/supervisors, caretakers/attendants, risk communication and community engagement, security, etc. Considering
global reductions in commodity shortages,
 movement restrictions, border closures, and decreased trucking and ights, it is
important to outline what additional resources will be needed and how they will be procured.

What sounds like a blueprint for a future action describes three levels of confinement. The targeted will be “temporarily relocated to safe or ‘green zones’ at the household, neighborhood, camp/sector or community level.” Each involves isolation. 

The lucky high-risk people will be at home, but “physically isolated from other [household] members,” CDC says:

Low-risk HH members should not enter the green zone. If entry is necessary, it should be done only by healthy individuals after washing hands and using face coverings. Interactions should be at a safe distance (approx. 2 meters). Minimum movement of high-risk individuals outside the green zone. Low-risk HH members continue to follow social distancing and hygiene practices outside the house.

The same rules will apply for the “neighborhood” level, and the “Camp/Sector Level” is next:

A group of shelters such as schools, community buildings within a camp/sector (max 50 high-risk individuals per single green zone) where high-risk individuals are physically isolated together.

Rules in the camp “green zone” will be tight. No one in, no one out:

One entry point is used for exchange of food, supplies, etc. A meeting area is used for residents and visitors to interact while practicing physical distancing (2 meters). No movement into or outside the green zone.

High-risk kids are not exempt from the “operational considerations.” They will be “be accompanied into isolation by a single caregiver who will also be considered a green zone resident in terms of movements and contacts with those outside the green zone.”

“Dedicated staff” will monitor the “green zones,” meaning they code and track the movements of the “green-zone” inmates.

New York has already moved to quarantine the healthy. A newly enacted law that awaits disgraced Governor Andrew Cuomo’s signature will give him the power to lock up anyone he deems a threat, including those only “suspected” of infection with a contagious disease.

The governor or one of his underlings “may order the removal and/or detention of such a person or of a group of such persons by issuing a single order, identifying such persons either by name or by a reasonably specific description of the individuals or group being detained,” the law says:

Such person or group of persons shall be detained in a medical facility or other appropriate facility or premises.

The state has considered the idea for at least six years.

It goes without saying that certain “high-risk individuals” will not be trapped in “green zones” should the Biden Regime implement the confinement/internment plan. They include President Joe Biden and family, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her bunch, Senators Chuck Schumer and Mitch McConnell and their relatives, tycoons such as Bill Gates and Warren Buffett, and anyone else with money and power. They will remain free to do as they please.

Border Invasion

One reason Americans might be subject to confinement is the illegal alien invasion at the southwest frontier with Mexico. As The New American reported last month, official data from U.S. Customs and Border Protection show that agents have caught more than one million illegals since October 1, the beginning of fiscal 2021.

Unofficial data reported by the Associated Press put the latest monthly total for August at 210,000, not counting 37,000 who slipped into the country.

The Biden Regime is dumping those illegals, many infected with the China virus, into American communities. In some cases, they are flown into the heartland; in others, they board buses. In either case, they scatter where they wish.

On August 2, Bill Melugin of Fox News tweeted footage of buses arriving at processing centers from the border.

Biden has dumped 7,000 infected migrants in McAllen, Texas, including 1,500 in the last week.

In late July, police in La Joya, Texas, learned that illegals with the virus were freely running about town, and in one case were caught sneezing and coughing in a Whataburger.

Biden weaponized covid to invade Texas with infected illegals, Gov. Abbott warns

(Natural News) At the same time that the Biden regime is threatening mandates and lockdowns and other measures to get more Americans vaccinated for COVID-19, the ‘president’ is literally weaponizing the virus to ensure that it spreads faster and farther across the country, and he’s using illegal immigrants to do it.

No sooner than Joe Biden settled in behind the Resolute Desk in the Oval Office, he began to sign a series of pre-written executive orders — an unprecedented amount of them for a president on his first day in office.

Among them were several orders aimed at dismantling President Donald Trump’s border enforcement orders and agreements with Mexico and Central American nations. The result: A steady, quickening stream of illegal aliens bum-rushing our border, inundating our country with third-world poverty and disease.

Including COVID-19.

But instead of turning back anyone who tests positive for the virus, the regime is allowing them safe passage into our country; the Department of Homeland Security has been instructed to ‘seed’ the country with migrants, making it far more difficult to find them later and to ensure that as much of the virus as possible can be spread, especially to red states, where vaccination rates are lower because the people who live in those states don’t trust Biden, Anthony Fauci, or the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Now, at least one state is fighting back.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, a Republican, has implemented several of his own measures to crack down on the illegal immigrant tsunami. He’s ordered his National Guard to the border to assist state law enforcement agencies, while also empowering the Guard to make arrests. He has ordered state police to interdict vehicles suspected of moving illegal aliens inland. And he’s preparing to fund border wall construction while putting hundreds of migrants in detention for breaking and entering.

These actions have earned him the threat of a lawsuit by the ‘InJustice’ Department, though Abbott is undeterred. And he knows what Biden is up to.

“The Biden Administration is knowingly admitting hundreds of thousands of unauthorized migrants, many of whom the federal government knows full well have COVID-19,” he said in response to the DoJ suit.

“While the Biden Administration is openly pondering looming shutdowns and mandates on U.S. citizens to control the spread of COVID-19, at the same time the Administration is knowingly worsening the problem by importing COVID-19 at extreme rates,” he added.

“As the Governor of Texas, I have a responsibility to protect the people of Texas — a responsibility that grows more urgent by the day while the Biden Administration sits on the sidelines,” continued Abbott.

“I have the authority, and duty, under the constitutions of the United States and of Texas to protect Texans and our nation. I also have the authority under long-established emergency response laws to control the movement of people to better contain the spread of a disaster, such as those known to have COVID-19. My duty remains to the people of Texas, and I have no intention of abdicating that,” the GOP governor vowed.

He went on to say that the Biden regime must “stop admitting migrants who are not authorized by Congress to be admitted,” which would “substantially reduce the importation of COVID-19 while also fulfilling the federal government’s role to faithfully execute the laws of the United States.”

“It is clear that the Biden Administration fundamentally misunderstands what is truly happening at the Texas-Mexico border,” Abbott noted correctly. “It would be of some solace if the federal government was conducting appropriate COVID-19 testing and other mitigation strategies, but to the contrary, we hear too many reports of the federal government recklessly failing to do so and instead admitting into the United States — and Texas — migrants from over 150 countries, many of whom are testing positive for COVID-19.”

“In short, the Biden Administration is jeopardizing the health and safety of Texans on a daily basis by refusing to follow the law. And it’s not just Texans; these irresponsible policies and actions by the Biden Administration are endangering the lives of many Americans as well as the unlawful immigrants themselves.”

Shocking Photos Show the Horrifying, Inhumane Conditions of Biden’s Border Crisis


SEE: https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/matt-margolis/2021/08/05/new-photos-show-the-inhumane-conditions-of-bidens-border-crisis-n1467244;

Joe Biden’s laying out the welcome mat for illegal immigrants has resulted in “a human disaster at multiple crossing points,” according to photos provided to the Washington Examiner by the former acting commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Mark Morgan.

“This is crazy what’s happening,” Morgan told Paul Bedard of the Washington Examiner. Morgan’s photos of several crossing points show cages (yes, cages) of illegal immigrants, absolutely disgusting bathroom facilities, and thousands of migrants crammed under bridges as they wait to be processed in 100-degree heat.

“It’s nuts. There are 4,000 people under that bridge. We’ve had storms. They were outside …100 degrees outside,” he said.

“The White House said migrants are being handled in a humane and orderly way,” Morgan said. “This isn’t humane or orderly, and it’s not the Border Patrol’s fault. They are doing all they can to deal with the disaster created by Biden.”

One photo provided to the Washington Examiner shows a toilet at the Anzalduas International Bridge holding area at the Rio Grande River near Mission, Texas.

In addition to this, there are either too few or no showers or toilets available for these illegal immigrants—which Bedard notes is a “situation that during the Trump years resulted in a parade of lawmakers and media outlets going to the border to decry the conditions there.”

But the conditions are so much worse now under Biden, which neither the administration, Democrats in Congress, nor the media seem to care about.

“We were eviscerated day after day,” said Morgan. “Where are they now? The hypocrisy and double standard is undeniable. And the difference is we were doing everything we could to stop the flow while the Biden administration continues to encourage, incentivize and facilitate the flow of illegal migrants,” he added.

And then there’s the COVID factor. While fully vaccinated Americans are now being told to mask up indoors, a reported 7,000 illegal immigrants who tested positive for COVID were released into the United States in McAllen, Texas, alone.

RHODE ISLAND: Gigantic Teachers’ Union Sues Mom for Asking What the Local Public School Is Teaching Her Daughter


SEE: https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/bryan-preston/2021/08/05/gigantic-teachers-union-sues-mom-for-asking-what-the-local-public-school-is-teaching-her-daughter-n1467245;

republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

There was a time when parental involvement in our kids’ education was seen as a good thing that all parents should do. We were invited to meet our kids’ teachers and even participated in class once or twice a week. This was all part of making sure our kids obtained the education our tax dollars paid for.

The COVID pandemic and the moral panic following George Floyd’s death destroyed all of that. Unionized teachers advocated for closing schools and keeping them closed and started sneaking in critical race theory teachings at every level during online classes. When parents noticed and asked, they tended to get a run-around or worse. In Loudon County, Virginia, public school administrators and teachers formed a cabal to hunt down and smear parents who questioned them.

Rhode Island mom Nicole Solas wanted to know what her daughter was being taught in kindergarten. So she asked the school for copies of the curriculum. She is entitled to that, as a parent and as a taxpayer. Public school curricula are public documents.

Instead of accommodating her, the school fought her. That naturally raised her suspicions, so she asked for more and more, about 200 public information requests, and got more and more of a runaround from the school. The school even tried to stick her with a bill for $74,000 as a way of making her go away.

Now the all-powerful National Education Association-Rhode Island has sued Solas. She was served with the lawsuit this week. The NEA is the largest teachers’ union in the United States, and it backs using public schools to teach critical race theory. It proudly states that its president, Becky Pringle, is a “fierce social justice warrior and defender of educator rights.” NEA’s bio of Pringle doesn’t mention parents at all.

The NEA’s complaint is available here. The Goldwater Institute is representing Solas.

Boiled down, the gigantic union is begging the court to silence the mom, Nicole Solas, from asking questions about her child’s education. They want the court to enable public school administrators to hide documents that may be subject to FOIA laws (called APRA in Rhode Island, for the Access to Public Records Act). For instance:


I’ve dealt with public records from both sides, as a vigilante journalist and as a state agency employee, though not under Rhode Island’s APRA. Why is someone writing a “private” email or document to a public body? Why would a member of the NEA, in particular, do this? Its members are almost all public employees, making their electronic communications largely public information when a public body such as a school is also involved. Those communications may not be private at all. It can depend on the content and purpose of the communication or document. Typically a state’s attorney general is asked to weigh in on questions regarding documents such as these. NEA-RI seems to have chosen to use an intimidating lawsuit instead. Rhode Island’s attorney general is a Democrat, Peter Neronha. Depending on how APRA works, appealing to him rather than filing a lawsuit may have been the NEA’s smarter play.

Legal Insurrection has followed Solas’ case from the beginning. Law professor William Jacobsen says:

My initial take is that this smells collusive. South Kingstown doesn’t want to produce records and the union is helping them out. The lawsuit purports to prevent disclosure of “private” information, but the public records laws and Solas’ requests pursuant to those laws only require the district to produce public records. The district has been very aggressive in asserting exemptions and redacting documents, so the union’s concern and rush to court seems peculiar, at best.

It’s worth noting that the South Kingstown NEA previously targeted Solas, as we reported, by holding a special membership meeting singling her out as a danger.

Solas has been on the union’s radar very much as a target. She seems to have caught public employees violating the state’s open meetings law.

Now the monstrous teachers’ union is suing her.
