Target projects over $1 billion in losses due in large part to shoplifting. And that is its own fault.

Target CEO Brian Cornell responded to the BLM race riots with a memo claiming that, “the murder of George Floyd has unleashed the pent-up pain of years, as have the killings of Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor.” Much of that pain was directed at robbing Target.

After a massive wave of arson and looting, targeted its own chain stores, Target doubled down on its Racial Equity Action and Change strategy. The Target Foundation was one of the signatories of the Philanthropic Collective to Combat Anti-Blackness & Realize Racial Justice statement attacking the criminal justice system.

Target committed to racial quotas for its workforce and forced diversity and inclusion training on employees. Kiera Fernandez, Target’s Chief Diversity and Inclusion executive, warned that employees had to go along with the DEI agenda “to be a part of this company.”

Meanwhile people were being stabbed and shot at Target locations around the country.

A 9-year-old boy was among those stabbed by a homeless psycho with a butcher knife at a Los Angeles Target and a 17-year-old teen was shot and killed behind another store in the same city. A 19-year-old was shot and killed in a San Francisco Target parking lot.  Earlier this year a gunman opened fire at an Omaha Target and a 23-year-old was shot and killed at a St. Paul Target store.

These are just a few of the crimes that have been committed in the vicinity of Target stores.

“The unfortunate fact is violent incidents are increasing at our stores and across the entire retail industry,” Cornell admitted, which is “putting significant pressure on our financial results.”

Rather than commit to law enforcement, Target chose to run away from it and championed anti-police and pro-crime radicals. This shortchanged shareholders, but was part of its larger commitment to leftist social agendas under the ESG umbrella.

In 2016, Target became the first major department store to allow men, who falsely claim to be women, to use changing rooms meant for women and girls.

Conservatives launched a boycott and Target suffered a 7% drop in sales. But the retail giant doubled down, declaring that, “we stand for equality and equity” and that we “welcome transgender team members and guests to use the restroom or fitting room facility that corresponds with their gender identity.”

Target’s equity policy made it all too easy for a series of incidents in which men photographed, shot videos and otherwise spied on women and girls in dressing rooms and bathrooms. The perpetrators included a man recording underage girls.

Now Target has lost an estimated $10 billion in value after promoting “chest binders”. These dangerous and damaging pieces of equipment are meant to groom girls into identifying as boys. The chest binders were allegedly being sold in sizes as small as XS. The company also offered baby onesies and bibs promoting transgenderism.

Target removed some of the worst items from its shelves, but CEO Cornell apologized to “the LGBTQIA+ community” claiming that he was trying to “alleviate these threats to our team’s physical and psychological safety” while assuring sexual identity activists that he was worried how backing away from grooming kids would “impact you and your wellbeing and psychological safety.”

The most serious of the bomb threats came from an angry transgender activist who claimed to have placed bombs in five Ohio and Pennsylvania Target locations and warned, “we will continue to bomb your targets until you stop cowering and bring back your LGBT merchandise.”

Cornell showed little interest in the “physical and psychological safety” of Target employees when people were being shot and stabbed at its stores. Target stores have been regularly robbed, looted and burned without any sympathy for Target employees. And there’s been no support for female employees and customers forced to cope with men using their facilities.

Target’s decision to put woke politics over its customers and shareholders has been disastrous.

Cornell claimed that Target’s “focus on diversity and inclusion and equity has fueled much of our growth over the last nine years.” In reality, it’s lost the company billions of dollars.

Target has generated repeated boycotts because of its hostility to family values and its support for pro-crime groups has helped unleash a wave of lawless violence and thefts. The chain’s multi-billion dollar commitments to racial discrimination in its supply chain, staffing and philanthropy have fed a larger breakdown in trust and unity inside and outside its business.

The question is whether Target’s shareholders are tired of bleeding cash for DEI and ESG.

Target’s largest shareholders include ESG stalwarts like Vanguard and BlackRock. Unless the corporation feels a great deal of pain, Vanguard and BlackRock will keep on subsidizing Target’s social justice policies the way that they do with so many other major woke corporations. And what Vanguard and BlackRock want matters more than what individual shareholders do.

Last year, Target scrapped its retirement age and announced that Cornell, like Xi, would be staying on even as the stores were struggling, but there will be no change unless it begins at the top.

Cornell had taken the lead in pushing the new woke corporate mantras, and he has doubled down on arguing that “it’s the right thing for society, and it’s the great thing for our brand”.

ESG is based on this false linkage between leftist politics, “the right thing for society”, and sound business practices. State regulations and consumer boycotts are attacking ESG at the level of pure profit and loss. If ESG delivers losses, not profits, it will become unsustainable.

That is why the corporate culture war matters.

Good business and social agendas are incompatible. The Target boycott, like the Bud Light boycott and the battering that Disney has taken in Florida, has the opportunity to hammer that message home. And if that happens, Cornell’s job and much of Target’s wokeness will go with it.

CEO Brian Cornell has turned over Target to criminals and perverts. By putting agendas ahead of profits, he has hurt shareholders, damaged the brand and betrayed his responsibilities.

It’s time for him to go.

The ‘Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion’ Progressive Gestapo How its insane agenda is dividing – and destroying – America.

The left-wing progressives, who are the driving force of today’s Democratic Party, view America through the lens of group identity. They portray white heterosexual males as evil oppressors who have supposedly used their alleged systemic monopoly of political and economic power to victimize people of color, women, and the LGBTQ+ community. The Left believes that a Maoist-style cultural revolution is the required corrective, which is where their “diversity, equity, and inclusion” (DEI) agenda comes in.

President Biden frequently calls Americans who believe that America comes first “MAGA extremists” whom he says pose a danger to America. But it is the DEI progressive extremists who pose the real danger to America as we know it. They want to use their DEI programs as a Trojan horse to fundamentally transform America’s schools, government agencies, military, and much of the private sector through indoctrination in group identity dogma and race-based entitlement.

In the Orwellian dystopia that the progressive Left wants to create to replace America’s constitutional republic, “diversity” means division into oppressor and oppressed identity groups. Diversity of thought is not tolerated. “Equity” means the replacement of individual responsibility and self-actualization on one’s own merit with race-based entitlement. “Inclusion” applies only to the favored identity groups designated by the ruling authorities.

“The choice is between normal or crazy,” Arkansas Governor Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in her televised response to President Biden’s 2023 State of the Union address.

The DEI progressive extremists are trying to impose their craziness on the rest of us. The “I” in their DEI programs should really stand for insanity.

Most Americans believe, based on clear biological scientific evidence, that it is fundamentally unfair to allow transgender girls and women to exploit their anatomical and physiological advantages over biological girls and women in sports competitions.

According to a recent poll by the Kaiser Family Foundation (KFF) and The Washington Post, for example, more than 60 percent of Americans are opposed to allowing trans women and girls to compete in sports against biological women and girls.

DEI progressive extremists, on the other hand, demand in the name of “inclusion” and “diversity” that transgender females must be able to compete in women’s and girls’ sports against biological females. These extremists are anti-science. And they are misogynists.

Most Americans believe in the crucial role that parents should play in the upbringing, emotional development, and education of their children.

Recent polling results released by Parents Defending Education, for example, show that “74% of registered voters believe schools should not help students change their gender identity without parental consent, compared to 18% of registered voters believe schools should.” Moreover, “71% of registered voters oppose letting schools withhold information about a child’s gender identity from their parents, while only 21% support this policy.”

Furthermore, according to the poll results, “78% of registered voters agree with the statement ‘A child changing his or her gender identity has major long-term medical and psychological ramifications. Parents should know, and have an opportunity to be involved in, such an important aspect of their child’s well-being.’”

The DEI progressive extremists, on the other hand, believe that the nation’s children belong to the state. Parents should just “shut up,” as a Democrat New Hampshire state legislator put it. The DEI progressive extremists want to take over the impressionable minds of the parents’ kids to indoctrinate them with gender identity and critical race theory dogma. These extremists aim to destroy the nuclear family.

Most Americans believe that merit and willingness to work hard are the primary ingredients for success in America. They believe that equality of opportunity should not mean guaranteed equal outcomes. Nor should extending a helping hand to the truly needy mean perpetual government handouts that foster lifelong dependency rather than personal responsibility.

“Nearly two-thirds of Americans — including half of Democrats — back work requirements for Medicaid and Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program benefits,” according to a recent Axios-Ipsos poll. This is consistent with the work requirement for recipients who are able-bodied adults younger than fifty-six years of age and without dependents, which is included in the debt ceiling bill the House passed last month.

“Americans have a long-standing belief in the value of work. Consequently, when presented with work requirements for government aid, particularly aid most people don’t personally access, we see majorities supporting the policy change,” said Cliff Young, president of Ipsos U.S. Public Affairs.

DEI progressive extremists, on the other hand, reject such work requirements in the name of “equity.” They believe in an entitlement society. For example, contrary to any shred of rational thought, Rep. Ro Khanna, a leading progressive Democrat in the House of Representatives, claimed that “Work requirements don’t make people work more. What it does is deprive folks who need help. It’s just cruel.”

Pennsylvania’s Democrat Senator John Fetterman claimed that a plan meant to move people towards achieving self-sufficiency, gained from their own job earnings without losing their government support in the meantime, somehow “pushes people into poverty.”

The DEI progressive extremists believe in entitlement and perpetual dependence on the government for handouts instead of fostering a work ethic and the individual dignity that comes from taking personal responsibility for one’s own life.

But the insanity does not stop there. Not by a long shot. DEI progressive extremists are demanding reparations in the trillions of dollars to compensate black Americans today for the past bad acts of long-dead wrongdoers against long-dead victims.

House Democrat “Squad” member Cori Bush from Missouri introduced a resolution in support of reparations. She charged that “the Black-White wealth gap” of “$14 trillion” was due to “our federal government’s role in the enslavement and exploitation of Africans or Black people throughout our history.” Other Squad members such as Democrat Rep. Rashida Tlaib from Michigan chimed in. Tlaib said that a true belief in “equity” means making sure that “reparations is part of the movement towards equitable distribution of resources.”

Left-wing states and cities around the country have proposed reparations programs of their own.

Most Americans do not believe that white people living today should bear collective guilt and pay unaffordable reparations to black people living today as compensation for slavery that ended nearly 160 years ago with the Civil War. At least 110,100 Union Army troops died and 275,174 were wounded during the Civil War, a priceless sacrifice of life and limb to vanquish the Southern slaveocracy. Giving out windfalls, paid for by people who had nothing to do with the wrongdoing that occurred many generations ago, to other people based solely on the color of their skin trivializes these sacrifices. And it further divides Americans by race.

Most Americans also do not believe that white people living today should bear collective guilt and pay unaffordable reparations to black people living today for legalized segregation that prevailed in the bygone Jim Crow era.

The DEI progressive extremists have a completely different take to justify their call for massive reparations. They dwell on the “legacy” of slavery and the Jim Crow laws that followed, which they claim have entrenched systemic racism and white supremacism in America today. The result, the DEI progressive extremists charge, is a huge wealth gap between black people and white people that reparations to black individuals are necessary to narrow.

Most Americans agree that years of racial discrimination have caused harm to many black Americans, even with the substantial progress that America has made in redressing these harms through civil rights laws, affirmative action, and multi-trillion-dollar federal aid programs. There remains substantial support among the American people to continue government spending on education, work training, housing, health, and welfare programs to enable further improvements in the lives of black people and other marginalized groups.

Nevertheless, most Americans reject the DEI progressive extremists’ call for reparations in the form of cash payouts to black individuals and other race-based entitlements. A 2021 poll conducted by the Pew Research Center, for example, found that 68 percent of the U.S. adults surveyed did not support reparations for the descendants of people enslaved in the United States.

Going down the reparations path would open a Pandora’s box. Who would be next in line with their hands out for cash reparations?

Progressive Democrat Senator Elizabeth Warren, who once claimed to be a Native American herself, has already opened the door to considering reparations for Native Americans. Would that mean the descendants of the Indian tribe who supposedly sold Manhattan for $24 worth of goods to the Dutch in 1626 should receive reparations equivalent to the land’s estimated value today – $1.4 trillion?

Who knows how far the DEI progressive extremists would be willing to go with their insane policy agenda? Normal Americans cannot afford to find out.

Discredited But Massively Wealthy SPLC Working with Corrupt FBI

The Biden regime is determined to silence dissidents.

The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) is one of the Left’s premier, well-heeled, and most dishonest and ruthless attack dogs. It relentlessly smears legitimate conservative individuals and groups by labeling them as purveyors of “hate” and lumping them in with the likes of the KKK and neo-Nazis. Its name-calling and defamation would be just more of the same rubbish that comes daily from the Left were it not for the fact that the social media giants and numerous other major corporations still take the massively discredited SPLC seriously and use its smear pieces as a guide to shun and deplatform various dissenters from the Leftist agenda. So the SPLC sounds like the perfect organization for the Biden regime to work with, right? Oh, absolutely. Now this sinister and hateful group is partnering with the equally corrupt and politicized FBI.

The Daily Signal reported Sunday that the FBI “appears, at least briefly, to have joined the Southern Poverty Law Center’s attempt to demonize Roman Catholics who follow the church’s teachings on marriage and who celebrate the Latin Mass.” One of those Catholics, Michael J. Matt, editor of a newspaper called The Remnant and producer of Remnant TV, noted that his organization, which is not remotely connected with violence or terrorism, was listed on a “leaked FBI memo,”  along with other Catholic groups that he pointed out were “defunct.”

Matt declared that this was an example the “FBI phoning it in,” as its list of “radical-traditional Catholic hate groups” came from a 2007 list compiled by the SPLC’s Heidi Beirich and Rhonda Brownstein. Matt asked incredulously: “They took Heidi Beirich and Rhonda Brownstein’s word for it, from 2007?!” He added: “There has been an explosion of traditional Catholic groups since Pope Benedict XVI brought back the Latin Mass. None of the new groups who are in positions of real influence are targeted in the memo.” That’s good, but the fact that the FBI is working with the SPLC and targeting law-abiding citizens because it disapproves of their religious beliefs is disquieting enough.

The Daily Signal notes that the SPLC “has branded mainstream conservative and Christian nonprofits ‘hate groups,’ placing them on a map with chapters of the Ku Klux Klan.” This includes Jihad Watch and the David Horowitz Freedom Center, which have committed no offense other than standing for human rights for all people. The Signal goes on to note that “former employees have condemned the ‘hate’ labeling as a ‘highly profitable scam’ tracing back to the co-founder’s talents as a fundraiser. In 2019, the SPLC fired that co-founder amid a racial discrimination and sexual harassment scandal, the full truth of which has yet to be revealed.”

Nevertheless, “the FBI’s Richmond, Virginia, office cited the SPLC in a January memo, which the national FBI office publicly rescinded in February. That memo listed nine organizations, most of which the SPLC first added to the list of ‘hate groups’ in 2007. The SPLC suggested that those organizations espouse and support antisemitism, and it has kept most of them on the list and the ‘hate map’ for nearly two decades.”

The FBI is not just keeping a list. In early March, Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) asked Gestapo chief Merrick Garland, “Are you cultivating sources and spies in Latin Mass parishes and other Catholic parishes around the country?” Garland pleaded innocent, insisting, “No, the Justice Department does not do that and does not, uh, um, do investigations based on religion.” But it later came to light — okay, get ready for the shock of your life — that Garland was lying. The feds did have informants in Catholic churches, snooping around and looking for evidence of that domestic terror threat that the Biden regime keeps insisting is the worst such threat we face today. Nor is there any indication that they’ve taken these spies out of the pews.

Fox News reported on April 10 that the FBI “recently sought to develop sources inside Christian churches and Catholic dioceses as part of an effort to combat domestic terrorism.” This was clear from internal FBI documents that the House Judiciary Committee released to the public. The documents reveal that the FBI was attempting to use “mainline Catholic parishes” as “new avenues for tripwire and source development.”

The feds wanted to educate sympathetic Catholics about “the warning signs of radicalization,” and then get them to help stop the rosary-praying terrorist by obtaining “their assistance to serve as suspicious activity tripwires.” This is nothing short of breathtaking in its resolute determination to construct a reality other than the one we happen to be living in. If there were a steady stream of terrorists routinely “radicalized” in Catholic churches and going out to bring the wrath of the Immaculate Heart of Mary upon the populace, there might be some justification for this program. As it was, it was plain and simple harassment and scapegoating of Christians.

This criminal regime will not stop with Christians, either.

The Myth of White Supremacy

BY DANIEL GREENFIELD

Republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, & research purposes.

America was never “white supremacist.” Nor was any other place.

The largest mob lynching in the South was of Italians.

The 1891 lynching of 11 Italians in New Orleans, after a roundup of over 1,000 Italians, grew out of an internal conflict among Louisiana Democrats and was praised by progressives of the era.

“These sneaking and cowardly Sicilians, the descendants of bandits and assassins,” the New York Times editorial board railed. “Lynch law was the only course open to the people of New Orleans.”

Future Louisiana Gov. John M. Parker, who helped organize the lynchings, described Italians as “just a little worse than the Negro, being if anything filthier in habits, lawless, and treacherous.”

Columbus Day was created as a quasi-apology to Italian-Americans for the lynchings which held only until Democrat identity politics began tearing down statues of the Italian explorer.

The myth of white supremacy is a story retroactively invented during the civil rights movement.

The KKK targeted Catholics and Jews. It hailed the “Anglo-Saxon white man” rather than viewing skin color as the only thing that mattered. The black-and-white view of history in which bigotry was as binary as the 1950s drinking fountains in Alabama reflected only a very brief reality during a decade or two in which the Irish, Italians, and Jews had come to be accepted. An era of growing tolerance for minorities was ironically the prerequisite for both the widespread acceptance of the civil rights movement and the distortions of civil rights history that we are dealing with today.

White supremacy was a myth born out of a more tolerant era in which prejudice toward black people briefly became the most defining form of bigotry. One that most people quickly rejected.

Baby Boomers, the most influential generation in history, mistook their youthful experiences for absolute reality. Knowing nothing of history and caring even less, they used their vast cultural powers to make the 60s into the ‘ground zero’ of American history. Generations have grown up with their ahistorical view of “white supremacy” encoded in education and entertainment.

The myth of white supremacy has divided Americans into an artificial racial binary created by the aftermath of the civil rights movement. The descendants of Italians, Irish, and Jews who faced persecution and lynchings are denounced for their “white privilege.” Historical revisionism has become even more grandiose with attempts like the 1619 Project to define all of American history around the racial binary. Critical race theory insists that the racial binary is inescapable.

The racial binary denies the oppression of anyone who can be seen as white. In an extreme example, Whoopi Goldberg sneered that the Holocaust was “white people doing it to white people. Y’all go fight amongst yourselves.” When the racial binary is the only measure of prejudice, thousands of years of Jewish, Irish, Slavic, Catholic, Protestant, and other histories of persecution, oppression, and martyrdom are irrelevant because the participants are “white.”

Outside the racial binary, no one else’s oppression matters and so no one else’s history matters.

The myth of white supremacy doesn’t just grotesquely twist American history around the racial binary, it usurps and eliminates the histories of Europe and even the Middle East. Jesus, a Jewish man, is depicted as black. Cleopatra, a Greek queen, also becomes black. The decade of distortion of the civil rights movement reaches thousands of years back to racialize the past.

And in the process, it eliminates the histories and struggles of much of the world.

White supremacy is a myth. The KKK was not upholding a racial binary, but the supremacy of its particular group, Southern Anglo-Saxons with a certain pedigree, against all comers, French, Irish, Italians, Jews, blacks, and anyone else who wasn’t a member of its narrow demographic. But that’s what inner city gangs also do with Latino and black gangs clashing over turf. It’s also reflected in the early 20th-century urban clashes between Germans, Irish, Jewish, and Italians.

The KKK was not a unique phenomenon. Similar identity politics battles go back to the founding of America with nativists fighting off the Irish in New York City even in the early 1800s.

The Nazis, another group that tends to be used to represent a simplistic racial binary, weren’t white supremacists either. National Socialist ideology believed that Germans were descended from the Aryan peoples who had migrated out of India. That was why they adopted the ‘swastika’, a Buddhist symbol, as their emblem. The Nazis conducted extensive outreach to Arab and African Muslims, to Asian and Latin America, and recruited black soldiers into the Wehrmacht. Hitler’s closest ally outside of Europe was Imperial Japan. The Japanese and Chinese were declared to be honorary Aryans.

While the Nazis were chasing people like my father, a blonde blue-eyed teenager who was valuable to the partisans because he looked a lot more like the Aryan ideal than Hitler, black entertainers were working in Berlin and Paris, and black soldiers were fighting for Germany. The Nazis despised black people and criminalized any relationship with German women, but they viewed Jews and gypsies as an urgent racial threat to be exterminated at all costs.

Black nationalists like Marcus Garvey admired Hitler. And the Nazis tried to influence African-Americans. “There have never been lynchings of colored men in Germany. They have always been treated decently,” Nazi propaganda aimed at African-American GIs claimed. “So you don’t have to be afraid to be with Germans.”

Liberal Jews struggle to tell the story of the Holocaust in the face of a dishonest mythical racial binary that groups Jews and Nazis together. And there is no way to tell that story or any other, those of lynched Italian immigrants, the Swedish immigrants on the plains, the Irish fighting for their rights, and the manifold conflicts that shaped Europe and modern civilization, not to mention the entire history of the Middle East, without demolishing the big lie of the racial binary.

America was not defined by “white supremacy” nor was any other place. The KKK and the Nazis were not “white supremacists,” they were upholding power for their own group while persecuting and killing a broad spectrum of people from other groups. Having light-colored skin did not mean getting a free pass from the KKK, let alone the Nazis who killed millions of people, the vast majority of whom would be considered white by today’s woke cultural establishment.

What we think of as “white supremacy” is a racist movement that arose largely in response to the civil rights movement. It quickly became marginalized and while its proponents hate black people, they also hate Jews. Recent domestic terrorist attacks carried out by self-identified white supremacists have been evenly divided between targeting Jews and black people.

A growing number of white supremacists are Latino making the racial binary even more senseless. But the idea of Latinos as a non-white race is an absurd addendum to the racial binary which is entirely detached from European and Latin American history and can be traced back to a liberal search for new minorities to recruit in the wake of the civil rights movement. Having decided that Latinos are non-white, liberals are confused when some Latinos decide that they are not only white but members of a white master race. But the entire concept of La Raza or ‘The Race’ came from a Mexican intellectual who was an enthusiast of Nazi Germany.

Marcus Garvey, the founding father of black nationalism, and Jose Vasconcelos, the founding father of La Raza’s Latino racial nationalism, were both admirers of Hitler’s racialism. Contrary to the myth of white supremacy, in which white racialism is evil and those of other races are good, white supremacy, black nationalism, and Latino racial nationalism derive from the same sources.

Racists of all races admire other racists. The greatest woke lie may be that the alternative to racism is anti-racism. Liberals used to know that the alternative to racism is not hating others.

But rather than admit that white supremacy and the racial binary are a myth and that the country is dealing with intergroup conflicts, as it always has, and that the boundaries between those groups are often artificial, Democrats and the media are doubling down on the racial narrative that lies at the heart of their power base that the civil rights movement still defines our history.

When we stop treating people as heroes or villains based on their skin color and actually look at what they believe, we will actually be able to address real bigotry, instead of convoluted exercises in racial power politics like redefining black racism as reverse racism or anti-racism.

Bigotry is inherent in human nature. No one of any race, ethnicity, or creed is immune from it, but that doesn’t mean that we need to be bound by it. The impact of different bigotries can be defined by power, but power comes in different forms, and it has been a very long time since any large racial group in America was powerless: either politically or physically.

America doesn’t face a problem of white supremacy, but a multitude of quarreling groups who distrust each other and who have come to believe that success is a zero-sum game. Democrat identity politics is so busy creating new groups from sexual fetishes and immigration that it never gets around to noticing that none of the existing groups get along with each other.

Diversity has ceased to unify, as it briefly did during the high points in American history, and has become a politically convenient source of division. The emphasis on a racial binary only makes all of that worse by turning Italians, the Irish, the Jews, and, these days even Asians and Latinos who can be accused of “internalized whiteness” into scapegoats for Democrat social disasters.

White supremacy isn’t the issue, identity supremacy is. Generations have been told by the Democrats, by their educational systems and entertainment that they are defined by identity politics and that positive change will come when they narrowly fight for the interests of their group, while suspecting the worst of members of other groups, especially white people.

Non-white people are taught to believe that white people are hoarding power. In San Francisco, black people are being urged to demand slave reparations from the Asian population. Women are encouraged to resent men. Transgenders are told to hate women. Within the LGBTQ movement, gay men have become scapegoats. California just passed a ban on “caste discrimination” among Indians. This is what the utopia of the perpetually aggrieved looks like.

This isn’t white supremacy: it’s identity supremacy. And if we don’t move beyond it, there will be no nation, only one long endless civil war across the fractured territories of what was America.

Biden Decries White Supremacy And Hate In Commencement Address To Howard University

BY ROBERT SPENCER

SEE: https://www.frontpagemag.com/the-threat-behind-bidens-latest-lie/;

Republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, & research purposes.

Old Joe Biden gave the commencement address at Howard University on Saturday, and as he has done so many times during his presidency, he stoked the flames of racial hatred, resentment, division, and mutual suspicion. That’s par for the course for this conscience-free, senescent corruptocrat, but his words at Howard had an ominous edge that all Americans should not fail to discern. Biden wasn’t just lying, as he always does. He was signaling future plans of his regime.

Biden repeated his frequently repeated lie that Donald Trump had called Nazis “fine people,” and also said: “But on the best days, enough of us have the guts and the hearts to st- — to stand up for the best in us. To choose love over hate, unity over disunion, progress over retreat.  To stand up against the poison of white supremacy, as I did in my Inaugural Address — to single it out as the most dangerous terrorist threat to our homeland is white supremacy. And I’m not saying this because I’m at a black HBCU.  I say it wherever I go.”

What’s a “Black HBCU,” Joe? “HBCU” stands for “Historically black colleges and universities,” so our alleged president, who is sharp as a tack and not at all in the throes of advanced dementia, was saying that he was speaking at a “black historically black college and university.” This ridiculous phrase could be the result of Joe’s speechwriter making lazy use of the acronym, but it’s more likely that Biden was going off-script and saying something incoherent. Again.

Old Joe lied yet again when he said that he repeats the lie that white supremacists constitute the nation’s biggest terror threat everywhere he goes, but he has indeed said it before. And not just Biden, but also Gestapo chief Merrick Garland, and the FBI have told us so, and they wouldn’t lie to us, now, would they? In November 2021, FBI and Homeland Security Department officials increased investigations of “domestic extremists,” reiterating the claim that they are today’s foremost terror threat. Yet no matter how often Biden and his henchmen repeat this, actual white supremacist terrorists in any significant numbers have been conspicuously lacking.

Ever so conveniently for Biden, no sooner had he uttered this false claim again at Howard on Saturday than a couple of hundred actual white supremacist terrorists miraculously materialized in Washington. All were young, physically fit men; not a single fat Nazi in the bunch. All wore the same blue shirt and khaki pants uniform, all with their faces covered, and once again, the feds showed no curiosity about who they are and made no attempt to determine where they came from or where they went. This clumsy false-flag operation was widely exposed and ridiculed on Twitter, but conservative writer Chris Brunet pointed out:

“What’s sad about this clip is that everyone here on my side of Twitter instantly knows this is a glowie/fed operation… pure theatre. But it is actually a really effective psyop, they keep doing it, because it works. Ask any normal person on the street, ask your mom, ask your sister, and they will be terrified of this clip and fall for it hook-line-and-sinker.”

The FBI has also been busy fashioning a white supremacist threat in other ways. Whistleblowers have revealed that Old Joe’s pure-as-the-driven-snow FBI has been hard at work pressuring agents to classify cases as “domestic violent extremism” (DVE) when they aren’t, and rewarding them when they do. That’s how you create a white supremacist terror threat.

This revelation came last year in a letter that Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) sent to FBI top dog Christopher Wray. Jordan stated that “from recent protected disclosures, we have learned that FBI officials are pressuring agents to reclassify cases as ‘domestic violent extremism’ even if the cases do not meet the criteria for such a classification.” This was no surprise. This is, after all, the same FBI that investigated angry parents who protested at school board meetings against the imposition of the woke agenda in public schools.

That’s the threat that was contained in Old Joe’s words at Howard. Old Joe said it plainly last September in his ominous red and black speech: “Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic.” The parents at the school board meetings were just the beginning. This regime aims to criminalize political dissent, and that will require demonizing and stigmatizing fully half of the electorate. Before too long it will be clear that when Biden claims that white supremacists are the biggest terror threat the nation faces, he means ordinary Americans who have never broken any law but who oppose his agenda. If everyone who opposes him is a white supremacist terrorist, then the nation has over a hundred million of them. Arrests and prosecutions on false pretenses will follow. That’s the threat that was contained in his words at Howard.

The Ominous Reason Why Biden Keeps Repeating His False Claim About a White Supremacist Threat

As Ben Bartee noted Saturday, Old Joe Biden’s commencement speech at Howard University “included a hearty condemnation of the alleged scourge of White Supremacy™ in America.” In fact, the alleged president called white supremacy “the most dangerous terrorist threat to our homeland.” Then on Sunday, Homeland Security Secretary and failed Disinformation Governance Board overlord Alejandro Mayorkas agreed with Old Joe, emphasizing that “domestic violent extremism is our greatest threat right now.” Many other Biden regime officials have said the same thing in the nearly two and a half years now that they have been inflicting themselves upon us. The reason why they keep making this false claim is clear and ominous.

At Howard, Biden first repeated his oft-stated lie that Donald Trump had called Nazis “fine people.” Then he said: “But on the best days, enough of us have the guts and the hearts to st — to stand up for the best in us. To choose love over hate, unity over disunion, progress over retreat. To stand up against the poison of white supremacy, as I did in my Inaugural Address — to single it out as the most dangerous terrorist threat to our homeland is white supremacy. And I’m not saying this because I’m at a black HBCU. I say it wherever I go.”

A “black HBCU”? As opposed to all the white historically black colleges and universities, Joe? But anyway, Old Joe’s lie about white supremacists being the nation’s biggest terror threat has also been repeated by Gestapo chief Merrick Garland and the FBI. In November 2021, FBI and Homeland Security Department officials increased investigations of “domestic extremists,” reiterating the claim that they are today’s foremost terror threat.

Yet no matter how often Biden and his henchmen repeat this, actual white supremacist terrorists in any significant numbers have been conspicuously lacking. Yet on MSNBC (of course) Sunday, “journalist” Jonathan Capehart perpetuated the myth, asking Mayorkas: “The president, yesterday at his commencement address for Howard University graduates, called white supremacy the major domestic terrorist threat in this country. Is that correct?”

Mayorkas, of course, answered in the affirmative: “It tragically is. And the terrorism context, domestic violent extremism is our greatest threat right now. Individuals are driven to violence because of ideologies of hate, anti-government sentiment, false narratives, and personal grievances. Regrettably, we have seen a rise in white supremacy. The principle underlying our work is that when one community is targeted, Jonathan, when one community is targeted, we as a country are targeted.”

Note how Mayorkas related “anti-government sentiment” to “white supremacy.” Old Joe revealed the game that is being played here last September when he said in his ominous red and black speech that “Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic.”

This regime aims to criminalize political dissent, and that will require demonizing and stigmatizing fully half of the electorate. It is increasingly clear that when Biden claims that white supremacists are the biggest terror threat the nation faces, he means ordinary Americans who have never broken any law but who oppose his agenda. If everyone who opposes him is a white supremacist terrorist, then the nation has over a hundred million of them. Arrests and prosecutions on false pretenses will follow. That’s the threat that was contained in his words at Howard.

And ever so conveniently for Old Joe, no sooner had he uttered this false claim again at Howard on Saturday than a couple of hundred actual white supremacist terrorists miraculously materialized in Washington. All were young, physically fit men; not a single fat Nazi in the bunch. All wore the same blue shirt and khaki pants uniform, all with their faces covered, and once again, the feds showed no curiosity about who they are and made no attempt to determine where they came from or where they went.

This clumsy false-flag operation was widely exposed and ridiculed on Twitter, but conservative writer Chris Brunet pointed out: “What’s sad about this clip is that everyone here on my side of Twitter instantly knows this is a glowing/fed operation… pure theatre. But it is actually a really effective psyop, they keep doing it because it works. Ask any normal person on the street, ask your mom, ask your sister, and they will be terrified of this clip and fall for it hook-line-and-sinker.”

Indeed they will. They still have no idea what game is being played. But as Old Joe’s henchmen continue to move to make it possible for only their point of view to be enunciated in the public square, their objectives will become obvious to everyone.

Biden Calls ‘White Supremacy’ the ‘Most Dangerous Terrorist Threat’ in Speech at Black College

Biden Calls 'White Supremacy' the 'Most Dangerous Terrorist Threat' in Speech at Black College

Joe Biden is a born political panderer. It’s how he won the Democratic Party nomination, and it played a large role in his victory over Donald Trump.

Telling people what they want to hear is a political skill that most politicians possess. But there may never have been a politician as adept and skilled as Joe Biden in pandering to voters based on their race, their gender, their sexual identity, or any other aspect of their personhood that can be sliced, diced, and pureed to create a message tailor-made for a particular Democratic constituency.

Biden gave the commencement address to the historically black college of Howard University on Saturday and turned on the pander up to “10” in his bid to win over his audience.

Biden discussed racism and said that hatred “never goes away” and only “hides under the rocks.”  “A vivid demonstration when it comes to race in America, hope doesn’t travel alone. It’s shadowed by fear, by violence, and by hate,” he said.

Biden referenced the “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville in 2017 and likened the scene to “the same ‘antisemitic bile’ that was voiced in the 1930s in Europe during the leadup to the Holocaust along with Nazi banners and members of the Ku Klux Klan,'” according to The Hill.

Biden said white supremacy is the most dangerous terrorist threat to the country. He said the battle against racism is “never really over,” but enough people come together to stand up to choose “love over hate, unity over disunion, progress over retreat” and against the “poison of white supremacy.”

He said the graduates he was speaking to represent the future who are going to be leading the country.

“In our lives and the life of a nation, we know that fear can shadow hope, but it’s also true that hope can defeat fear,” Biden said.

To compare a few hundred neo-Nazis gathering on a college campus to hundreds of thousands of stormtroopers marching through the streets of Berlin in the 1930s was not only idiotic, but it was also nothing more than an effort to pander to the lowest instincts of his audience. Instilling fear in black voters is a national obsession with Democrats. And that includes trying to identify “white supremacy” as the greatest terror threat.

“And I’m not just saying this because I’m at a Black HBCU. I say this wherever I go.” The audience laughed, knowing the only reason Biden made the statement about white supremacy was that he was addressing a black audience.

Twitter wasn’t convinced either.

“White supremacy” is as much a threat as black nationalists, Muslim fanatics, and radical left revolutionaries. But it wouldn’t be a Biden speech unless he pandered to one of the Democrats’ primary special interest groups.

Biden will protect black people from “white supremacy,” but will he address the fact that more than 70% of black babies are born to single mothers? That’s just one of a half dozen “threats” more dangerous to black people than white supremacy. But pandering does not allow for bringing up uncomfortable truths. So white supremacy it is.

The Soros Activist at the Heart of California’s $800 Billion Slave Reparations

George Soros succeeds in turning black people against each other.

Citizens Club of Springfield, IL Conversation with IL Supreme Court Justice Lisa Holder White

In 2021, the Equal Justice Institute celebrated a settlement with the University of California in which the system agreed to stop using SAT and ACT test scores, objective merit-based metrics, in college admissions, until 2025. The racialist lawsuit claimed that test scores violate the California Constitution’s Equal Protection Clause as “indicators” of race.

The “SAT is a barrier to equal opportunity”, Lisa Holder, a counsel with the Equal Opportunity Institute, claimed.

Like a lot of destructive leftist activists, Lisa Holder received a Soros Justice Fellowship from the radical billionaire’s Open Society Foundation. The similarity in the names of the Equal Justice Society and Soros’ Open Society Foundation is more than strictly coincidental as Soros was one of the EJS’ founding donors.

Beyond drawing six figures in compensation from the Equal Justice Society, Lisa Holder has her own law practice that focuses on racial issues and occasionally draws a check for teaching at UCLA.

Holder is also a member of California’s Reparations Task Force which has proposed to bankrupt the state and its taxpayers with as much as $800 billion in racial reparations in a state that was never a slave state. Among the various aging machine politicians (along with Kamala’s minister) who staff the task force, she may be the most important and effective racial campaigner on it.

Lisa Holder had fought to end California’s ban on racial discrimination through affirmative action in a proposition backed by $1 million from George Soros’ Open Society Policy Center, along with former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer, the wife of Netflix CEO Reed Hastings and major corporations and nonprofits. Despite all the billionaires and companies in her corner, Californians turned down the proposition to legalize racial discrimination.

What voters wouldn’t go for, California’s extremist one-party legislature did. Holder claims credit for drafting two bills, AB 241 and 242, which mandated indoctrination in racist woke ideologies for doctors, lawyers, and judges. Implicit bias training has been linked to all sorts of racist ideas and discriminatory practices associated with critical race theory including ‘white privilege’. It has also been shown to encourage medical professionals to dispense treatment and prioritize triage based on race rather than medical need potentially using racial discrimination to kill people.

AB 242 claimed that “all persons possess implicit biases”, but that “most people have an implicit bias that disfavors African Americans and favors Caucasian Americans” and “other socially stigmatized groups, such as Native Americans, immigrants, women, people with disabilities, Muslims, and members of the LGBTQ community”.

Conveniently, Lisa Holder is also a “recognized racial justice scholar and equity consultant”.

The reparations proposal is a whole lot bigger than legalizing racial discrimination through affirmative action or forcing doctors and lawyers to hear about their white privilege.

Racial reparations had also been a longtime Soros cause. In 2021, former Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, since dispatched as Biden’s ambassador to India after an aide’s sexual misconduct scandal, revealed that the Soros network had offered funding for a racial reparations program in Los Angeles. The billionaire’s extremist network has also funded a variety of reparations activists including Nkechi Taifa, a senior policy analyst in the Soros network, described as a “principal player and catalyst in the reparations movement” and a “founding member of the National Coalition of Blacks for Reparations in America”  (N’COBRA)

Taifa is also a commissioner of the National African-American Reparations Commission (NAARC). Another NAARC commissioner, Cheryl Grills, is also a member of the California Reparations Task Force. Jeremiah Wright, the bigoted Obama mentor who cheered 9/11, is an honorary member of NAARC.

While it was a foregone conclusion that the panel would vote themselves millions of dollars, the real controversy within the reparations movement and the dozens of organizations that have sprung up to lobby for free money was whether it would be limited to the descendants of slaves or would be given out to all black people or perhaps all Africans: which might include Elon Musk.

The California task force brought in members from both camps. The National Coalition of Blacks for Reparations in America has vocally argued that all black people should get reparations. NAARC claims support for this position from BLM and other racist hate groups. That is also N’COBRA’s position. However, groups like the National Assembly of American Slavery Descendants and the American Descendants of Slavery have forcefully made the argument that only the descendants of slaves should be eligible for a check. This is at least legally tenable.

In January, the split commission voted to limit reparations to descendants of slavery by 5 to 4. That is the position of the more established black community and it was championed by chairwoman Kamilah Moore, but opposed by Lisa Holder and Nkechi Taifa. And the debate is still going on with pro-race activists claiming that tracing genealogy is unworkable and that black immigrants should be eligible for reparations because America is so fundamentally racist.

With a $22.5 billion deficit in the state, the difference between limiting reparations to those who can prove that they descended from slaves and everyone with the right skin tone could be massive. The $800 billion estimate widely discussed is based on the state’s over 2 million black residents. Limiting reparations to the descendants of slaves would produce a smaller, but likely still wildly unworkable number.

Cheryl Grills of NAARC condemned the “preoccupation with a dollar figure”, but the dollar figure remains the best argument for those advocating for limiting reparations to those whose ancestors were enslaved along with their contention that purely race-based reparations would be shut down by the courts. The Soros network’s activists however remain committed to universal reparations and $800 billion in payouts.

While the debate has largely played out within the black community, the intervention of the Soros network on the side of the most destructive and impossible position is typical.

The Soros networks, like all leftists, seek destruction, not healing, and making reparations as universal and as unworkable as possible would stimulate the most outrage and anger.

And that would further divide the races and tear apart not only California but America.

George Soros has dedicated his life to dividing people of all nations and backgrounds. With California’s racial reparations, the activists he has supported have turned black people against each other.

 

Indiana Councilman Comes Out as ‘Lesbian Woman of Color,’ (AMERICAN INDIAN) and Yet Leftists Are ENRAGED

Indiana Councilman Comes Out as ‘Lesbian Woman of Color,’ and Yet Leftists Are ENRAGED

Ryan Webb, Indiana Republican and Lesbian Woman of Color on Jesse Watters Primetime 5/01/2023:

BY ROBERT SPENCER

It should have been cause for celebration. According to a Monday report in the Daily Caller, Ryan Webb announced that he was “honored” to “shatter that glass ceiling” as he became the “very first lesbian woman of color” to serve as a county councilman in Delaware County, Indiana. Yet instead of celebrating, Leftist Hoosiers are enraged and are calling for Webb to be removed from the county council altogether. Webb has even received death threats. Wait a minute: Don’t they love men who claim to be women, and women who claim to be men? Doesn’t today’s Left celebrate gender confusion and mental disorders? Not in this case.

Ryan Webb started it all in late April when he posted on Facebook that “after much consideration, I have decided to come out and finally feel comfortable announcing my true authentic self. It is with great relief that I announce to everyone that I identify as a woman and not just any woman but as a woman of color as well. I guess this would make me gay/lesbian as well since I am attracted to women.”

This is just the sort of thing that makes one a hero to Leftists today, and Webb laid it on thick, adding: “Whew, that felt good to finally get that out there and start living life as my true self. I’m excited to bring some diversity to the county council. Until today we didn’t have any females of color or LGBTQIAPC+++ on the council. I’m glad that now we do!” But then he added: “To avoid confusion, everyone can continue to address me as Ryan or as Councilman Webb. I will also retain my preferred pronouns of He/Him, however, this will in no way diminish my true identity as a woman of color.” What? No pronoun nonsense? Webb concluded by saying: “God bless America!” God? What?

Webb also appears to have continued to wear men’s clothes, rather than go the full Sam Brinton route and embrace the full drag-queen look of skirts and feather boas, and garish eyeliner. Nor has he started wearing a silly-looking wig to hide his receding hairline. All that plus the fact that up to now Webb has been a Republican who has mocked the transgender madness, and even Leftists were sharp enough to see that something was amiss. The Muncie Star-Press adds that “the post was signed with a string of emojis, including the American Flag, a rainbow flag, a person of color, a winking smiley face and a bicep flex.” Charlize Jamieson, a man who claims to be a woman and lives in Webb’s district, began to suspect he was being mocked.

Jamieson wrote to Webb on Facebook: “Was this really necessary? It’s unbecoming of an elected official … or a decent human being for that matter.” Webb responded by turning the Left’s game on one of its players: “Charlize Jamieson do you think you have the only password to the forbidden world of coming out? When you decided to become a woman did people tell you it was unbecoming? Sorry pal but you don’t get to decipher who is acceptable and who isn’t. I was hoping that you and I could be friends now that we’re both ladies that used to be men. I’ll give you some more time.” This was great fun, but it all quickly got ugly.

Webb noted that a group with the Orwellian name “Indiana Progressives” began “a hate and harassment campaign against me and my family by publishing my address and encouraging people to unlawfully congregate at my home.” Then at the county council meeting last Tuesday, Jamieson and others demanded Webb’s resignation. “He has, purposely, and intentionally, misgendered me,” Jamieson declared, “ridiculing my own gender identity. That is not something transgender people do to one another.”

Another Leftist complained about “having to take time out of my day today to try to teach a grown man how to behave appropriately” and reminded the council that “jobs require a certain amount of integrity to be exercised. In none of my jobs in the past 21 years would I have been permitted to mock and disrespect my customers. If I did I would be fired. We are your customers. The people. You are a public official. He may mind his manners here in this room, but his behavior online absolutely casts shame on this entire council.”

Webb defended himself by saying: “You don’t get to question me. You do not get to require proof from me. You were part of the movement that helped establish these rules and set the bar, OK? You don’t get to come later when someone else joins the club that you don’t want in … You don’t get to question how I identify.” He also refused to resign.

How is Ryan Webb wrong? If Rachel Levine, Lia Thomas, and Charlize Jamieson can proclaim that they’re women and demand that everyone play along, why can’t Ryan Webb? Because he’s mocking them? He is indeed exposing how ridiculous they are before the world, but they themselves are mocking reality and embracing insanity. For Leftists, that mockery is just fine. Ryan Webb’s isn’t. If anyone deserves to be called “stunning and brave,” it’s Ryan Webb.

Biden Runs for 2nd Term to Protect Abortion and Grooming Kids

“MAGA extremists are lining up to take those bedrock freedoms away.”

Biden has tried to ban gas cars and stoves and has banned incandescent light bulbs, air conditioners, large mesh fishing nets, menthol cigarettes, charter schools, women in sports, conversion therapy, roads in Alaska, and mining in Minnesota among many other things.

Now he’s running for a second term on a platform of freedom.

“Freedom – personal freedom – is fundamental to who we are as Americans,” Biden, who had fought to force millions of people to wear masks, recited in a campaign video.

The last time he was this eloquent, Washington D.C. was all but under martial law and he rode to the inauguration of his stolen election past rows of National Guardsmen in a locked-down city.

The Biden video then went on to warn that, “the question we are facing is whether in the years ahead we have more freedom or less freedom, more rights or fewer.”

And if you doubt that, Biden’s infrastructure bill included a pilot program to remotely track drivers. His newly revitalized IRS is cracking down on moms who sell used clothes on eBay and his administration created a disinformation office to track political dissent on the internet.

Endorsing Biden’s exciting new freedom agenda was a politician antonymous with freedom.

“Our democracy is under attack. Our freedom is being stripped away,” Gov. Gavin Newsom of California, whose one-party party rule has banned singing in churches and synagogues, disposable utensils, fur coats, purchasing puppies, flavored tobacco, gas furnaces, salmon fishing, shark fins, rat poison, Indian mascots, leaf blowers and travel to half of America.

“It’s time to step up—and there’s no one better to lead that fight than President Biden,” Newsom urged in his campaign tweet. “Looking forward to another 4 years of his leadership.”

If there’s anyone who knows about stripping away freedom, it’s Gov. Newsom whose system forcibly shut down churches and synagogues, and banned protests on government property.

“Every generation has a moment,” Biden, who was born during WWII, claimed, “To stand up for their fundamental freedoms. I believe this is ours. That’s why I’m running for reelection.”

After dodging the draft in Vietnam, Biden’s reporting for duty at the age of 80 to fight for freedom.

On a word association test, Americans listed “dementia” and “old” as being among the words that they associated with Biden. “Freedom” did not make the list. That was back in 2020, but it’s hard to believe that in the years of misery since, “freedom” has beaten out “dementia” in either the minds of the voters or the mind of the man who has to remember how to walk downstairs.

But since Biden can’t run on a platform of promising to take his medication long enough to steal the rest of the money out of your wallet, he’s running on the same platform as Patrick Henry.

Sort of.

“Around the country, MAGA extremists are lining up to take those bedrock freedoms away,” Biden claimed, in front of pictures of Donald Trump and Ron DeSantis.

What sort of “bedrock freedoms” is he running to protect?

According to Biden, he’s going to fight for our freedoms against Republicans “dictating what health care decisions women can make”, a euphemism for killing babies in the womb, and “banning books”, a euphemism for keeping graphic pornographic books out of schools.

When the Framers met in Independence Hall in Philadelphia, they neglected to add killing babies and grooming kids to the Constitution as our bedrock freedoms. They did however bar the government from suppressing political speech and the right to bear arms. Those are actual bedrock freedoms that Biden has repeatedly violated and intends to go on violating.

While his supporters went on an arson spree attacking pro-life centers around the country for the crime of encouraging women to keep their babies, the Biden DOJ and FBI spent all of their time raiding pro-life activists who were engaged in non-violent civil disobedience.

Unlike arson and killing babies, the right to protest actually is one of our “bedrock freedoms”.

“Let’s stand with teachers and parents against politicians trying to score political points by banning books,” Biden had previously pleaded at a White House event. When actual parents had protested these ‘books’, including those featuring graphic sex with children, by speaking out at school board meetings, the Biden administration tried to investigate them as terrorists.

The right to assembly isn’t one of our bedrock freedoms, but pushing sex on 8-year-olds is.

Last year, the Biden administration sent in the feds to go after a school district in the Dallas-Fort Worth area for daring to remove books from its school library that included ‘This Book Is Gay’, which teaches students to use ‘sex apps’ to hook up and then “meet the trick in a public place”.

Biden’s idea of freedom is using the power of the state to crush local parents for refusing to let their kids be groomed to secretly prostitute themselves through their smartphones.

The freedom to suppress parents who want to protect their kids is “fundamental to who we are as Americans”. Almost as much as banning light bulbs, cars, and women winning at sports.

Running for a second term on a platform of killing and sexually abusing children is unique.

But it’s also a cunning strategy. As long as voters are debating the merits of Biden’s proposal to kill and sexually abuse children, they’re being distracted from their economic misery. All the talk of whether parents should face domestic terrorism investigations for opposing books that promote graphic sex to 8-year-olds may make them forget that they can’t afford to buy food.

“I pledge to make sure your kids can be safely raped or murdered,” may not be the best campaign slogan, but it is memorable. Especially if you wrap up Justice Department investigations of concerned parents and peaceful protesters in a drag act of freedom.

Freedom means different things to different people. To the Founding Fathers, it meant that Americans would be left alone by the government. To Biden and his party, it means that the people should never be left alone by the government for one solitary single second.

That generic totalitarianism has been infused with perverse ideological insanity.

The price of a government that never leaves you alone is economically enormous. Biden has proposed a $6.8 trillion federal budget and his corrupt inflationary spending is destroying the finances of the nation and the future of generations. But it’s also catastrophic morally. An intrusive state always needs crises to serve as a pretext for its crackdowns. And the warped morals of totalitarians tend to revolve around cruelty and debauchery. Especially to children.

Freedom to totalitarians looks like the right to kill and rape children. And the authority to force parents and all decent people to keep quiet while they do it.

Massachusetts School Official’s Job Offer Rescinded Because He Called Two Women ‘Ladies’

Massachusetts School Official’s Job Offer Rescinded Because He Called Two Women ‘Ladies’

The good little Maoist conformists of the Easthampton Public School District in Western Massachusetts dodged a bullet Thursday: they had very nearly hired a wrong thinker, an unenlightened, non-woke individual who was even a cis white male as their new superintendent. But just in time, the school district was saved: the sinister candidate committed an offense against all that is good and holy, and the job offer that had been extended to him was summarily rescinded. The errant near-superintendent’s crime? He called a couple of women “ladies.”

I apologize for not affixing a trigger warning to the immediate beginning of this article. I realize that you likely read that unguardedly, unaware of the enormity of the offense that had been committed. If you need counseling now, I certainly understand. It isn’t every day that one comes across such a flagrant crime against decency as this one, and the shock is indeed severe. The Daily Hampshire Gazette, a paper that publishes out of Northampton, Mass., reported Saturday that a man named Vito Perrone was a finalist for the job of superintendent and indeed, had actually been offered the job before he committed the unpardonable offense that led to the job offer being withdrawn.

Perrone “said Friday that the School Committee rescinded its offer to hire him in executive session Thursday night, alleging that the reason was a perceived microaggression contained in an email he sent to the committee chairperson.” The process of his hiring was so far along that he had already entered into salary negotiations with the district, “after he was offered the position the morning of March 24.” The Easthampton School Committee “offered Perrone a three-year contract with an annual salary of $151,000 — approximately $14,000 less than what he has made [sic] as an interim superintendent of West Springfield Public Schools.” Yet “despite the lower salary, he said he was keen on accepting the role.” He seemed like a good catch for Easthampton. But then he sent the fateful email.

Perrone recounted: “This job was not about the money for me. I honestly felt like I was coming home to Easthampton. I coached football here. I was the principal here when we built the school. I have such wonderful memories … I was excited to come back.” But as the contract negotiations went on, Perrone sent an email to School Committee Chairperson Cynthia Kwiecinski and the committee’s executive assistant, Suzanne Colby. In it, he addressed Kwiecinski and Colby as “ladies,” and all hell broke loose.

Kwiecinski, according to Perrone, charged that his use of the word “ladies” constituted a “microaggression,” and he should have known better. His clumsy word choice demonstrated his dangerous ignorance: “The fact that he didn’t know that as an educator was a problem.” Understandably, Perrone was dumbfounded at this woke lunacy: “I was shocked. I grew up in a time when ‘ladies’ and ‘gentlemen’ was a sign of respect. I didn’t intend to insult anyone.” But that’s how authoritarian societies work: you never quite know the rules, which are constantly changing anyway. That way the citizen is always living in fear and always on his toes, extra careful not to offend the elites, who could strike against him without warning at any time. A fearful populace is a compliant populace.

Kwiecinski has remained resolutely mum about this entire ridiculous (and ominous) incident, but Perrone thought it was important to clear the air: “I don’t want people to think I was not willing to negotiate in good faith. I have chosen not to just leave it as ‘negotiations stalled.’ I would rather share my truth, my sadness, and disappointment and try to find a way forward positively.”

While his disappointment is understandable, it’s really Perrone, and not the Easthampton Public School District, who has dodged the bullet here. Imagine having to work on a day-to-day basis with these woke harridans. It would be like living Kafka’s The Trial, in which the protagonist is charged with a crime but never told exactly what he is accused of having done. “Honestly,” Perrone reiterated, “I am truly, truly disappointed that I won’t be in Easthampton in that building. I’m just sad.” He should be dancing a jig, were it not for the fact that pretty much anywhere that he does ultimately get a job is likely to present him with the same humorless, censorious, and unforgiving Leftist environment.

Watchdog Group to Investigate Biden’s “Woke Army”

BY DAVID KELLY

Republished below in full unedited for informational, educational, & research purposes.

The Foundation for Government Accountability (FGA) announced Thursday they were launching an investigation into President Biden’s recent executive order (EO) that requires each major federal agency to assemble an “Agency Equity Team” — basically a permanent “woke army” — to “coordinate the implementation of equity initiatives and ensure that their respective agencies are delivering equitable outcomes for the American people.” 

Calling Biden’s egalitarian EO an “unprecedented scheme,” the FGA stated in a press release that they were “filing Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests targeting the 23 agencies addressed in the Equity EO, including the Departments of State, Justice, Defense, Labor, Transportation, Social Security, Education, … and Health and Human Services. FGA will share the information gathered with Congress, the states, and the American people.” 

All of the equity teams will report to an EO-established “White House Steering Committee on Equity,” chaired by the assistant to the president for domestic policy (currently Susan Rice). The Steering Committee members will be hand-picked, unelected, senior officials representing policy councils and offices within the Executive Office of the President.  

The FGA press release declared: 

“These equity teams are a Trojan horse planted in the heart of every federal agency to fundamentally change decision-making across the bureaucracy. Their goal is to continuously and permanently embed Left-wing ideology into every agency action,” said Tarren Bragdon, FGA President and CEO. “We cannot allow this new ‘woke army’ to force un-American philosophy into all corners of our federal government. They will degrade our nation’s capabilities and effectiveness, while undermining our liberty and security.” 

“We’ve seen the economic devastation over the first two years of the Biden presidency. If radical ideology is ingrained into every policy and regulatory decision at all agencies, the impact on the American people and economy will be widespread, devastating, and impossible to reverse,” Tarren Bragdon added.   

The FGA claimed the Biden administration will implement the EO using as a guide a left-wing activist group’s plan that is “designed to circumvent the normal, democratic process and instead force their ideology onto Americans using ‘government equity leaders and practitioners’ from within the government itself.” 

The fast-tracking of building this “woke army” comes at a time when Biden’s rule on the egalitarian-based environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) retirement-investment policies is being exposed and questioned in Congress and by conservative politicians. Woke ESG policies are also reportedly being blamed for the recent Silicon Valley Bank failure that has rattled the stock market. Now, just imagine how well our federal government will serve Americans when Biden’s equity teams are unleashed to ensure the U.S. becomes an egalitarian utopia. 

In Thomas Sowell’s 2001 article titled The Dangers of Egalitarianism, he explained quite well how Biden has been able to enforce his woke agenda:

To create even the semblance of “equality” [of results] requires a concentration of power in the hands of political leaders…. And, as the history of the 20th century has shown repeatedly and tragically, in countries around the world, once concentrated power is put into the hands of political leaders, they can use it for whatever purpose they have in mind — regardless of what others had in mind when they granted them that power. 

Becoming the pawns of politicians is a high price to pay for letting demagogues stir up our envy and beguile us with promises to equalize. 

Thankfully, the FGA has drawn a line in the sand and is taking action to hopefully force the Biden administration to disband their “woke army” before they destroy what few liberties we have left. The FGA knows what’s at stake, and is ready for the battle ahead, stating

“The clock is ticking on President Biden’s term. And the radical forces inside his administration and their partners on the outside know they have limited time to embed their ‘leaders and practitioners’ into every federal agency before they lose power. If successful, this ‘woke army’ will outlast the Biden presidency and become a permanent fixture deeply entrenched in our government,” said Stewart Whitson, FGA legal director.  

“Through this investigation, FGA is fighting to expose this attempted ideological takeover of our federal agencies, and we won’t stop until we’ve uncovered the truth. We will share the information we uncover with Congress, the states, and the American people so that, together, we can help stop this unconstitutional effort before it’s too late.” 

What Did the Failed Silicon Valley Bank Get for the $70 MILLION It Gave to BLM and Similar Groups?

Maybe if the people who ran Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) had not been so profligate, the bank wouldn’t have failed. As Catherine Salgado reported Tuesday, according to the Claremont Institute, SVB gave a staggering $70,650,000 to Black Lives Matter (BLM) and like-minded entities, and according to a report in The Daily Beast, BLM’s leadership took the largesse it had received from guilty corporations hoping to avoid charges of racism and squandered much of it on “high-end real estate, familiar consultants, ambitious grants, and more.” For the BLM leadership, it was time to let the good times roll.

It wasn’t just BLM, either. Just The News reported Friday that SVB had promised to fork over no less than $5 billion to various organizations in order to help companies that were endeavoring to assist with “the transition to a sustainable, low carbon, net zero emissions economy.” Then, after the bank collapsed, it was criticized for “prioritizing eco-conscious environmental, social and governance (ESG) investing over sound investment principles while also focusing on diversity and social justice in hiring over strict merit.” And not just in hiring, as the massive payout to BLM indicates.

But for all the money it gave to Black Lives Matter, did Silicon Valley Bank get diversity and social justice? Not quite. The Daily Beast’s May 2022 report notes that BLM co-founder and former sole voting director Patrisse Cullors “authorized a six-figure payout to be given to her child’s father for various services, paid $1.8 million to companies owned by her relatives, and ensured that her brother, Paul Cullors, was one of the highest-paid employees of BLM.”

Even worse, “tax documents not only proved that Cullors lied about misusing some of the funds (such as hosting a birthday party for her son and throwing a private Biden inauguration celebration in the multimillion-dollar property intended for activists and creators), but that she did so repeatedly.” Ah, racial justice at last!

What did you expect? Patrisse Cullors herself said in 2015: “We are trained Marxists. We are super-versed on, sort of, ideological theories.” In practice, Marxism doesn’t mean actually spreading wealth around. It means that the wealth of those who have no political power is confiscated for the benefit of those who do have political power. That’s the way Leftists always rule.

In the old Soviet Union, while all the rhetoric was about how the workers had thrown off their oppressors and were now in charge, the common people were actually more impoverished than ever, as well as more powerless. Those who really had the political power, and were supposedly running this “dictatorship of the proletariat,” meanwhile, lived it up in sumptuous dachas and feasted on gourmet meals served on the finest china. They deserved reward, after all, for all their efforts for The People, and so does Black Lives Matter today.

SVB was, of course, by no means alone in financing the luxury lifestyle of Patrisse Cullors and other Marxist BLM leaders. Just The News reports that “other big-name corporations listed in the BLM donor database included: CitiGroup and Facebook, which each gave over $1 billion, Amazon (almost $170 million), Apple ($100 million), and American Express ($50 million), among dozens of others.”

What did they all get for their money? In a certain sense, it was akin to the protection money that the Mafia would collect from small businesses: you got a really nice picture window here in your shop. It would be a shame if it were broken. For $100 a week, I can make sure that doesn’t happen. After Antifa and BLM rioted all over the country in the summer of 2020, the point was made to the big corporations: demonstrate your commitment to “social justice,” or else.

When asked about the donations bonanza it received and the possible connection of SVB’s failure to its massive donation to BLM, the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation (you guessed it) charged racism: “Associating a multi-billion dollar bank failure to supposed donations made to Black organizations is quite literally the definition of white supremacy — especially when it’s a bank that has been and continues to be largely run by white people.” It added in a sly pitch for Marxism: “We need to be demanding real accountability both from the private sector and the government, which leads to immediate policy change, including public banking options. Until we stop protecting the interests of tech executives, shareholders, and billionaires and start protecting Black people from their gruesome exploitation, then we will, unfortunately, witness many more big bank bailouts.”

As everyone should know by now, “real accountability” doesn’t really mean that everyone should be held accountable. It just means that the people who are left unaccountable should change. But the BLM leadership is already in that category.

Air Force Will Pay Big Money for Diversity, Equity, Inclusion Jobs

Air Force Will Pay Big Money for Diversity, Equity, Inclusion Jobs

The United States Air Force is looking to hire people for several diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) positions, offering a minimum salary of $82,830, but as much as $183,500 annually for the top position.

The jobs, which are posted at USAJobs.gov, are located in Alabama, Alaska, and Virginia. But don’t think that means you have to relocate if you want to brainwash America’s military with DEI, which is basically a euphemism for the racist principles of critical race theory. All these positions are telework-eligible, though occasional travel may be required.

The highest-paying role, identified by the military service branch as a first-level supervisor for “diversity equity inclusion and accessibility” efforts, has a starting salary of $155,700, reports Just The News. The primary duty of the position is to strategize, organize, and oversee the activities of the Office of Diversity and Inclusion within the branch to guarantee compliance with legal and regulatory requirements for “diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility education and training, and strategic outreach and engagement complies with legal and regulatory requirements.”

I’m sure our enemies will be really intimidated by our military now.

All diversity positions are accessible to current or previous federal employees, veterans, military spouses, and individuals with disabilities, among other eligible candidates.

Flashback: Marine Corps Disgraces Itself With Pride Month Pandering

The military has come under significant scrutiny in recent years for prioritizing “wokeness” over military readiness. According to a recent report, the U.S. Air Force hosted 67 pride celebrations in 2022.

“Among those events, top Air Force leaders participated in the first service-wide LGBTQ+ Pride event organized by a new volunteer team within the Air Force focused on LGBTQ+ issues, the newsletter, dated Feb. 10, shows,” the Daily Caller reported last month. “The LGBTQ Initiatives Team (LIT) participated in 67 Pride commemorations across 33 Air Force and Space Force installations throughout 2022 and intends to organize more events this year.”

According to the report, there are also several  “Air Force Barrier Analysis Working Groups” dedicated to promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in the Air Force, including the LGBTQ Initiatives Team, the Black and African American Employment Strategy Team, the Disability Action Team, the Women’s Initiative Team, and more.

The military’s increased prioritization of promoting social justice issues is alarming. The primary duty of the military is to protect our country—not host pride events and post concepts that divide people based on race under the guise of promoting “diversity” and “inclusion.” Our nation deserves better than this. Our enemies will look at what we’re doing and realize we no longer have the strong military we used to.

Drug Cartels And Opium Wars: How HSBC Hid Dirty Money In Hong Kong

PLEASE WATCH ON YOUTUBE FOR EVEN MORE CORRUPTION AT HSBC:

If HSBC were a country, it would be the fifth world economic power. Founded during the golden age of the Opium trade to enable the British Empire to access the Chinese market, it has created a unique network to move dirty money around the world. From tax evasion to money laundering for the mafia and manipulation of currency, “this bank had done everything bad that a bank can possibly do.” In 2012, HSBC nearly lost its license to operate in the US for laundering the money of the Mexican and Columbian drug cartels. Criminal charges were filed and HSBC’s executives were hauled before a Senate committee. But George Osborne, UK’s then Chancellor of the Exchequer, wrote to his counterpart in America and to the Chairman of the Federal Reserve to plead for leniency. He claimed that if HSBC received a harsh punishment, it would have serious repercussions on the world’s financial and economic stability. The letter worked and HSBC was fined 2 billion euros. The equivalent of one month’s profits. As the center of international finance moves to Asia, HSBC is in a prime position. It is the most Chinese of Western banks and the most European of Chinese banks. Protected by London, blessed by Beijing, who would dare attack it? This documentary was first released in 2017.
