by Helen Raleigh

The woke left has long professed that they love immigrants. But in truth, their love is conditioned on whether the immigrants accept its woke ideology. For those immigrants who reject its doctrine, the woke left has only detestation.

Gender ideology is not about liberation – it is about coercion and control.
 October 22, 2021

Transgenderism has emerged as one of the most influential ideologies of our time. It is shaping people’s behaviour and thought in pursuit of a specific political objective – the erosion of the significance of biological sex.

And it is undermining long-held cultural assumptions about what it means to be a man or a woman.

Above all, it is an intolerant, coercive force – and it has been thoroughly embraced by political and cultural elites in both the UK and the US.

In the UK recently we have seen Labour Party leader Keir Starmer criticise one of his MPs for daring to say that ‘only women have a cervix’….

Mother of Gender Fluid Biological Male Who Used Trans Friendly Bathroom School Policies to Rape Biological Girl Blames Rape Victim for being Raped

Mother of Gender Fluid Biological Male Who Used Trans Friendly Bathroom School Policies to Rape Biological Girl Blames Rape Victim for being Raped

This little male freak in the news story discussed below – a biological boy – slapped on a skirt, identifies as “gender fluid,” so he was given access to a public school’s girl’s bathroom, where upon he raped an honest to god girl, a biological girl.

Regardless of how this biological male identifies – whether he claims to be trans or something else – it is absolutely a ramification of the left’s push towards blurring any and all lines between biological males and females, including the notion of allowing natal males who “identify” as female into women’s only spaces (such as bathrooms, domestic violence shelters, and locker rooms) that makes male rape of females much easier and more likely to take place.

The liberal media disgustingly tried to cover for this by pointing out that the girl in question previously had consensual sex with the gender fluid, skirt wearing male freak rapist.

The school system tried covering up this rape for quite some time, until the story was broken by a conservative site.

Last I heard, the mother of the gender fluid male freak is victim-blaming the boy’s rape victim.

I can never again take another liberal or Democrat seriously when they say they are opposed to sexism or the sexual abuse of women when I keep seeing news stories like the one below.

(Link): Mother of “Skirt Wearing” Rapist in Loudoun Blames Victim for Being Sexually Assaulted

The mother of the 15-year-old boy at the center of the Loudoun County school rape spree has come out and slammed the young victim of the assault, claiming she was “willing” and that her son isn’t to blame for the rape.

The Loudoun County School Board came to international attention in October when a father revealed his ninth-grade daughter had been sexually assaulted in the girl’s restroom at her school by a male student “wearing a skirt.”

The assault took place at Stone Bridge High School in May, and was followed by a series of controversies including the father being violently arrested when trying to confront School Board members about the assault at a public meeting.

The boy would be promptly transferred to another school where he would later be arrested for sexually assaulting yet another young female student – this time confining the girl in an empty classroom and molesting her.

In October, the teen was found guilty of rape in the first case after being charged with two counts of forcible sodomy, one count of anal sodomy, and one count of forcible fellatio. He is awaiting trial on the second assault.

Today, the mother of the boy came forward to (Link): speak with the Daily Mail about the incidents, but rather than showing any empathy for victims – she slammed them while defending her son.

“He’s a 15-year-old boy that wanted to have sex in the bathroom, with somebody that was willing,” she stated, seemingly neglecting the fact her son had been convicted of rape, “And they’re twisting this just enough to make it a political hot button issue.”

She went on to blame the victim in the first case for her own sexual assault, saying “If I was in a position where I was about to be raped, I would be screaming, kicking, everything … You’re 15. You can reasonably defend yourself. You’re not just going to sit there and take it.”

The West Needs a Better System for Identifying Radical Islamists by Tawfik Hamid

The West Needs a Better System for Identifying Radical Islamists by Tawfik Hamid

The following piece was written by a Muslim who is a self-identifying ex-Islamic Jihadist.

(I conveyed some of the same sentiments as he does in his WSJ article in blog posts here years ago, and on my SoloLoner Twitter account, but the clowns 🤡 at progressive Christian Stephanie Drury’s “Stuff Christian Culture Likes” Facebook group ripped on me years ago for saying the same thing this Muslim guy does here):

(Link): The War on Terror Shifts to ‘Brainistan’  by Tawfik Hamid

Excerpts:

The West needs a better system for identifying radical Islamists and cutting out the religious underpinnings of jihad.

September 10, 2021

Twenty years ago, 19 of my fellow Arab Muslims carried out the worst foreign attack on American soil in history.

Slipping into the country legally and apparently without raising alarm bells among our intelligence and law-enforcement communities, these members of al Qaeda, a radical Islamist group bent on jihad, crashed two commercial airliners into New York’s World Trade Center towers and a third plane into the Pentagon.

They failed with a fourth aircraft because of the actions of courageous and selfless passengers. As a result, nearly 3,000 people were murdered that day, and many more have succumbed to related injuries in the ensuing years.

I mention all this not to recall the obvious, but to make the point that such immense harm to our nation could be effected by a small group of dedicated terrorists.

Yet now, in the name of protecting Afghan nationals who helped our military and intelligence services—and of providing the prospect of better lives to the hundreds of thousands who stream across our southern border this year—we have created conditions favorable to another, perhaps much deadlier terror attack on the U.S.

Sad but true: In the 20 years since 9/11, we have continuously worked to fight only the symptoms of what transpired that horrible day.

[The author goes on to list steps that the U.S. government did to combat Islamic terrorism in the aftermath of 9/11]

Yet here we are, on Sept. 11, 2021, still vulnerable to the same sort of act that transpired 20 years ago despite our enormous expenditure of treasure and precious blood. I guarantee you, among those who are entering our shores and crossing our borders are men hell-bent on dwarfing 9/11 and declaring another victorious jihad.

How do I know this? I was once one of them.

‘The Taliban Will Enjoy Killing Us’: Gay Man Trapped in Afghanistan Says Extremists ‘Are Hunting Us’

‘The Taliban Will Enjoy Killing Us’: Gay Man Trapped in Afghanistan Says Extremists ‘Are Hunting Us’

Bear in mind as you read this story below that many American liberals and leftists often…

– especially the ex-Christians, or the guys who use the “Exvie” (ex-evangelical) tags on Twitter, or some of the Facebook groups that rant about Christian spiritual abuse and in favor of leftist identity politics –

…behave as though American evangelical Christians or Republicans are the biggest threats to homosexuals.

Aside from homosexuals, the Taliban (Muslim extremists) don’t like Christians; I just heard the other day that Christians trying to flee Afghanistan say that if the Taliban catches a Christian, they will set a living Christian on fire.

I’d be a little less concerned if someone won’t use my “pronouns” or refuses to bake me a wedding cake over my sexual identity or behavior, and more concerned over being shot or burned alive by Muslim extremists for political or religions disagreements.

A gay man trapped in Kabul has said the Taliban ‘are hunting us’ as he gave a harrowing description of what a life under the extremists’ rule would look like for the LGBTQ+ community.

The man, whose identity has been concealed for his own safety, said the Taliban would take pleasure in hunting down and killing LGBTQ+ people in an exclusive interview with MailOnline.

Washington Post: Why Didn’t Biden Plan to Get Female Activists Out of Afghanistan?

Washington Post: Why Didn’t Biden Plan to Get Female Activists out of Afghanistan?

So, for all the Never Trumpers (which would include former Southern Baptist Beth Moore) and the liberals and leftists who claim to be against sexism, to claim they were repulsed by Trump’s “grab ’em” line, I’d like for you to grapple with Democrat failure of women – this botched withdrawl was carried out under a Democratic Party administration (Joe Biden’s), with the first ever woman Vice President, Kamala Harris.

(Link): Washington Post: Why Didn’t Biden Plan to Get Female Activists out of Afghanistan?

Good question. The need to protect women and children from the depravity of the Taliban’s seventh-century ideology had been one of the driving forces for sustained American engagement in Afghanistan.

That includes Barack Obama as well as the two Republican presidents who bookended his administration.

Now, however, the NGOs and activists encouraged by those policies to work in Afghanistan find themselves stuck in the collapse, the Washington Post reports. It takes quite a few paragraphs to get to the reason why, however:

While the administration in recent weeks has acted to accelerate the processing of SIV applicants and began airlifting applicants and their families out of Afghanistan, it has not done so for others who might be targeted by the Taliban because of their affiliation with international organizations but who are not eligible for the SIV program.

Several people involved in the evacuation effort said they were shocked by the Biden administration’s lack of preparation for the possibility that female activists and other vulnerable Afghans would be at risk and require aid — especially given how central the issue of women’s rights has been to the U.S. project in Afghanistan.

It was an effort cited by successive American presidents as a justification for the U.S. presence. …

Amed Khan, a New York-based philanthropist and human rights advocate who has been working to evacuate at-risk Afghans, said that between the SIV applicants, women’s rights activists and other allies, thousands of people have “risked their lives implementing our agenda for the last 20 years.”

Outcry Over Plan to Educate ‘Bigoted’ Rape Survivors (biological women) About Trans Rights by Tom Gordon

Outcry Over Plan to Educate ‘Bigoted’ Rape Survivors (biological women) About Trans Rights

After having seen several news reports like the one below, I’ve found that the vast majority of persons – biological males claiming to be women – and the “trans rights movement”
– is about misogyny (biological men and some of their women allies harassing, threatening, and gas-lighting biological women), and also about harassing biological men and women who are homosexual.

In the last few years, I tried telling progressive persons, especially ones who host Facebook groups and so on, that despite the fact they often claim to care about victims of churches and of Christian culture,
that they have become so very partisan about politics,
that they are already excluding or bullying victims of sexual abuse (or other types of mistreatment) caused in and by churches, and they  do not care, all because these other victims don’t share their progressive political views.

That is what you see at work in this article below.
The rights and feelings of biological men who like to pretend to be women are now taking precedent over the rights, feelings, and safety of actual (biological) women. It’s disgusting.

You can see how this biological man who is pretending to be a woman who is at the head of this Rape Crisis Center is valuing “intersectionalism” above the safety of actual women.

With the far left, and “useful idiot” liberals, the politics always comes first and foremost – not the people who may be impacted.

This is no different from conservative Christian churches who teach biological women to stay in abusive marriages to men, and who teach divorce is not permissible, all because the church preachers place respect for the institution of marriage above the safety of the people in the institution. It’s the same thinking.

(Link): Outcry Over Plan to Educate ‘Bigoted’ Rape Survivors About Trans Rights

Excerpts:

Aug 12, 2021
by Tom Gordon

The head of one of Scotland’s biggest rape crisis centres has suggested “bigoted” rape survivors should be re-educated about transgender rights as part of recovering from their trauma.

Mridul Wadhwa, a transgender woman, said people would not truly recover unless they addressed their “unacceptable beliefs” because “therapy is political”.

She [he] said: “We will work with you… but please expect to be challenged on your prejudices.”

The comments imply rape survivors may be treated differently according to their political views.

One expert said “pushing a political view onto a woman at a time of profound trauma and crisis” would be “inappropriate, unethical and unprofessional”.

Gay Campground Gets Accused of Hateful Transphobia for Banning Female Genitals

Gay Campground Gets Accused of Hateful Transphobia for Banning Female Genitals

I’m sitting here as a conservative, a non-woke, never- been- woke, non- ally,  watching in some amusement as the left eats one other!

I remember when a lot of homosexual men, the “g” in LGB(T), used to harass Christian bakers, photographers, or florists, for not wanting to provide their services or artistry, in, or for, homosexual weddings. Many Christians were sued out of business, or almost, over that.

Now the shoe is on the other foot!
This is the third or so blog post I’ve done in the last couple of months of how the far left, usually the “T” in LGBT, harassing cis (biological) male homosexuals.

I hope any of you homosexual guys who used to harass straights or Christians over the legalization of gay marriage, whether IRL or on social media and on blogs,  are now feeling sheepish or remorseful over that, because you are now on the receiving end of the same behavior you used to dole out. How does it feel?

March 21, 2021

We’re living in interesting times.

An easy example: the evolving concept of gender and its inclusion in a gay/lesbian alliance.

Originally, “gender” related to grammar. Then we were told it’s the same as “sex.” Then we were told it’s a societal construct. Then we were told it’s within us when we’re born.

And also:

(Link, off site): Official Harvard Guide: Gender Can ‘Change From Day to Day’

Meanwhile, homosexuality — an absolute attraction to the same sex (as opposed to gender) — holds down the “L” and “G” in the same grouping amid which “T” defies the convention.

As society evolves, we’re working our way through:

Apropos, in Michigan recently, a clash of initials occurred.

Businessman Bryan Quinn had an idea: Open a gay camping area in the spring.

The co-owner of Camp Boomerang RV Park and Campground — in the city of Orleans, roughly 50 miles north of Lansing — posted to Facebook an explanation of the camp’s concept.

Biologically speaking, Bryan envisioned the vacation destination as exclusively male.

These days, what’s the best way to put that into words?

Last month, here’s what he composed:

Camp Boomerang is a private, membership-only RV park/campground that allows only “guys.” A “guy,” in terms of this discussion, is defined as a person with a penis, [who] presents himself as male and has a state-issued ID that says “male.”

Clear?

Bryan must’ve braced for a bit of backlash:

We understand this statement, unfortunately, may not make everyone happy, but feel it needs to be clarified.

“Being a ‘private membership only’ entity,” he wrote, “allows us the ability to build a like-minded atmosphere.”

….As reported by the Advocate, not everyone was on board.

While some critics declared they definitely weren’t “like-minded” toward the policy, one nay-sayer inquired as to whether there would be “penis checks” at the entrance.

The Religion of Wokeness (video)

The Religion of Wokeness (video)

(The video entitled “The Religion of Wokeness” is embedded and linked to towards the end of this post. I may embed and/or link to other videos from this series below)

I’ve noticed for well over a year now that Wokeness, CRT, Identity Politics, intersectionality, Whiteness Studies, Black Lives Matters, and all these other leftist movements and lingo are religious in tone.

Leftists sound and act like they are in a cult.

It’s perhaps most glaring with people who say they left conservative or fundamentalist Christianity and behave as though they have just merely swapped out those former religious beliefs for the secular religion of Wokeness.

Most of these liberals / progressives who’ve left conservative Christianity remain blind to the fact that they’ve merely made Leftism / Leftist causes into their new religion.

Regarding: ‘Imagine Thinking the Holy Spirit Will Protect You from Covid but Not from CRT’ – some thoughts

Regarding: ‘Imagine Thinking the Holy Spirit Will Protect You from Covid but Not from CRT’ – some thoughts

So, there’s this guy named Scott something- or- other (surname Coley?) who I muted or blocked on Twitter about a year ago, but sometime recently, Julie-Anne retweeted him (on her Twitter account). I don’t know if I can find his tweet again.

Every so often, this Scott guy posts something critical of Christian Gender Complementarianism I agree with, but I often find his bashing or mocking of conservatives or Trump-voting evangelicals on other issues to be hypocritical, condescending, or smug.

He may not come right out and name names, but it’s usually pretty obvious that his barbs are aimed squarely at “Trump evangelicals,” or any Christian church or group that is not progressive.

The tweet I saw recently via Julie Anne by this guy said something like this (link to Tweet):

‘Imagine Thinking the Holy Spirit Will Protect You from Covid but Not CRT’

Please note that sometimes leftists and liberals refer to CRT (Critical Race Theory) under other monikers, including “Culturally Responsive Education.” It’s all the same thing, just under different labels.

First of all, as I just posted the other day to this blog:

Secular Americans Less Likely Than Evangelicals to be Vaccinated: Poll

Secular Americans Less Likely Than Evangelicals to be Vaccinated: Poll

Well, well, well. This is sure to throw a wrench into the arguments or beliefs of liberals, leftists, certain classes of atheist, and Democrats, or anyone who hates Trump, Trump voters,  evangelicals, or anyone who is a YEC (“Young Earth Creationist,” or just “Creationist.”)

The left, liberals, and those who oppose a belief in a six day, literal creation of the world (something believed by some Christians) love to ridicule anyone who expresses vaccine hesitancy, or who may believe in Creationism – the vaccine hesitant or Creationists are said to be unscientific, barely literate, red necks.

I don’t care one way or another if others choose to get the vaccine or not. Nor do I care if people believe the earth is millions of years old or only six days old.

But if you’re one of those people who is quick to assume that any one who is Republican, evangelical, a Creationist, a global warming skeptic, or a vaccination hold-out is an idiot, anti science, or a hillbilly from the backwoods, note what this poll is showing.

If you’re measuring “getting vaccinated” to mean “someone who believes in science!,” you’re going to be disappointed by this.

Americans who are younger and identify as non-religious are less likely to get vaccinated than evangelical Christians, according to a recent report on polling data compiled by Ryan Burge, who says it shows the media “needs to be turning the spotlight a bit away from evangelicals and toward the … young and secular.”

Burge, assistant professor of political science at Eastern Illinois University, analyzed findings from a survey published on May 11 by Data for Progress.

Harvard Professor Who Refuses to Use the Term ‘Pregnant People’ and Insists on ‘Woman’ is accused of Transphobia By Her Woke Ivy League Colleague

Harvard Professor Who Refuses to Use the Term ‘Pregnant People’ and Insists on ‘Woman’ is accused of Transphobia By Her Woke Ivy League Colleague

If an adult born of one biological sex later in life wants to pretend to be of the other biological sex, I don’t entirely care (so long as it does not negatively impact me or other people), but I DO NOT support this idiocy, where facts of life, like biological sex, are denied!

People should not be hounded online, or banned or suspended from social media, or receive hate mail from people, or face being fired from their job, for knowing and saying that most humans are born one sex or the other, or for stating or acknowledging truisms, such as men don’t get periods or get pregnant, and women don’t have testicles or penises.

Woke-ism does not respect science – but then, I suppose the idiots on the left consider science “whiteness,” and hence “white supremacy” (eye roll), so they’re fine with ignoring it, I suppose.

The far left activist crack-pots (and many in the Democrat Party) are demanding everyone else in society speak in their woke terms and deny scientific realities. This is not okay.

Harvard lecturer Carole Hooven took heat from her own colleague after an appearance on Fox News this week in which she asserted that biological sex is real and defended the continued use of terms like ‘pregnant women’ and “male and female.”

“The ideology seems to be that biology really isn’t as important as how somebody feels about themselves, or feels their sex to be,” Hooven told “Fox & Friends” Wednesday. “The facts are that there are in fact two sexes — there are male and female — and those sexes are designated by the kind of gametes we produce.”
