September 2021

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Ninety-four percent of U.S. adults now approve of marriages between Black people and White people, up from 87% in the prior reading from 2013.

The current figure marks a new high in Gallup’s trend, which spans more than six decades. Just 4% approved when Gallup first asked the question in 1958.

The latest figure is from a Gallup poll conducted July 6-21. Shifts in the 63-year-old trend represent one of the largest transformations in public opinion in Gallup’s history — beginning at a time when interracial marriage was nearly universally opposed and continuing to its nearly universal approval today.

Islamic Taliban Paint Over George Floyd Mural in Kabul – Some Muslims Don’t Care About Intersectionalism, LOL!

This is not the first time that Muslims show they don’t care about American, liberal Democrat woke, identity politics and “intersectionality” (see more examples below under “Related Posts.”) LOL.

A mural of George Floyd in Kabul has been painted over by the Taliban. The erasure is part of the Taliban’s project to replace secular murals with Islamic slogans and paintings of new, Taliban flags.

by Libby Emmons

A mural of George Floyd in Kabul has been painted over by the Taliban. The erasure is part of the Taliban’s project to replace secular murals with Islamic slogans and paintings of new, Taliban flags.

The George Floyd mural showed protestor in silhouette holding a poster of Floyd’s face with the caption “I can’t breathe,” standing next to another silhouette protestor holding an Iranian flag with people drowning depicted on it, with the caption “We can’t breath” in Persian.

The revelation that this mural had been painted over led many to wonder what a mural of George Floyd was doing in the nation in the first place.

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.”

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.

This episode features me (Travis Brown) and my story growing up in a fundamentalist Christian home and the similarities I see with Woke ideology. It also features Douglas Murray and Peter Boghossian.

The Culture War is a Leftist Offensive

The Culture War is a Leftist Offensive

I am not in agreement with all opinions of this author on other subjects, but on this one, yes, I sure am.

Republicans and conservatives used to participate in the Culture Wars (I’ve spoken out against this in older posts on this blog, such as this one or this one from 2013),
but in the last few years, it’s been the left, the liberals, and the Democrats, and the “Never Trump” Republicans who have been initiating and perpetuating the Culture Wars in the United States – but they keep acting as though the evangelicals, the Trump voters, conservatives, or Republicans, are behind the Culture Wars.

Democrats have become more extreme on social issues, and they aren’t prepared for the backlash.

July 8, 2021
by Peggy Noonan

The word now is radicalized. So many people feel pushed to the edge and are pushing back.  Go to social-media sites and search “school board meeting” adding descriptors like “explosive,” “outrage” and “chaos.” Parents are rising up. New York Democrats just picked an anticrime former cop as their mayoral nominee.

Other signs that suggests a spirit of having been radicalized: Longtime alliances based on natural affinity are loosening.

Conservatives by nature support and respect the military. That’s changing among some of them, or at least becoming less reflexive, under the pressure of changes of political correctness and a woke brass.

… There’s a sense in America of a continuing political realignment, that it didn’t all start and end in 2015-2016.

I think that what happened last summer, when the streets erupted and statues toppled, is being answered now with a pushback – a quieter one but no less consequential.

…. [Author Kevin Drum wrote a recent editorial on his blog.]

He titled the piece bluntly: “If you hate culture wars, blame liberals.”

Flags Worthy of Contempt and Should Be Burned at Protests (if you’re into protests)

Flags Worthy of Contempt and Should Be Burned at Protests (if you’re into protests)

I would include variations of the flags below as well.

I’ve seen variations of the following flags for sale on sites such as Etsy and Amazon – which would include, for example, the BLM (Black Lives Matter) fist symbol on top of the “Transgender Pride” or the original “(LGB) Pride” flag.

With one or two caveats for at least one of the flags below (I will explain below), all the following are worthy of contempt, and everything they stand for is worthy of contempt, rejection, and derision. 

Most all the following flags are deserving of being set alight with fire, stomped or spat upon.

I do not support, within the United States, yanking a flag out of someone else’s hands and vandalizing it, though – that flag is their property.

However, if you’re into protesting and want to make or buy, say, an Antifa, BLM, or Trans Pride flag, to spit on it, wipe your feet on it in the public streets, or set fire to it, during a protest, that would be okay with me.

The Antifa (Anti-Fascist) Flag

Sometimes  presented with a black, not red, field.

Wielded by fascist, anti-American, anti-free speech degenerates who claim to be opposed to fascism but who are not.

Those who carry this flag with conviction usually also consist of current day teens, 20-somethings, and occasionally, aimless, unaccomplished 30-somethings, who lack life experience and were not expected to actually achieve anything in the schools they attended.

BLM – Black Lives Matter Flag

Wielded by a bunch of anti-American, pro-neo-Marxist, hypocrites and racists (who support racism against all groups, yet while claiming to stand in opposition to racism).

Democrats, Never Trump Republicans, Progressive and Apolitical Christians – A Double Standard – “You Can’t Vote For X And Be A ‘Real’ Christian and be in the ‘Cult of X'” – The Left Have Turned Politics Into a Religious Cult

Democrats, Never Trump Republicans, Progressive and Apolitical Christians – A Double Standard – “You Can’t Vote For X And Be A ‘Real’ Christian and be in the ‘Cult of X'” – The Left Have Turned Politics Into a Religious Cult

I did not vote for Trump in either election (nor did I vote for Hillary or for Joe Biden), but I am baffled at the avalanche of on-going animosity not just of the man (i.e., Trump) but of anyone who did vote for him.

Even now that Biden is the President Elect and will be taking office in about a month’s time (meaning Trump will be on his way out shortly, so there is no point in salivating in fury over the man any longer), Trump’s up-coming exit to a Democrat entering the office, has not done much to put a dent into the non-stop Trump hate I see on my social media time lines.

The sanctimonious warnings and index- finger- waving, scolding, tut-tuttings, usually by liberals, (but sometimes by “Never Trump” conservative or apolitical or milque-toast Christians), who write pieces saying that other Christians should not turn Trump into an idol, are particularly grating.

I am not a Democrat.

I never enjoy it when a Democrat wins any office, but especially not when we have a Democrat President.

I sat through Jimmy Carter’s time, Bill Clinton’s and Obama’s. But I recognized that each guy, due to term limits, will get only four to eight years in office at a time, and so I grit my teeth and put up with it until, mercifully, another Republican got into office. Why Democrats and Progressives cannot cope this way, I have never understood. 

The thing I find perhaps the most grating, other than the constant vilification and bullying of anyone who voted for a particular politician (in this case, Trump), are these condescending editorials shaming Christians about their vote, who say “Trumpism has become a cult, beware.”

Sometimes, these annoying pieces are written by conservative Never Trump Christians or, at other times, by progressive Christians.

These pieces strike me as being terribly smugly pious, and I am very tired of them. 

But there is a double standard or two going on here.

Trump haters, whether conservative or liberal, have turned politics into an Idol. It’s not the right only doing this.

Leftists see the government, politics, and forcing liberal views on to school children, office workers and everyone else, (views such as “Critical Race Theory,” “white fragility,” and more), as being the solutions for American society.

Anti-Trump conservatives and liberals have turned concepts such as “white privilege” and so forth into religious-like dogma which they defend and promote, well, religiously.

They will burn anyone at the stake as heretic who doesn’t agree with their liberal views or who doesn’t agree with unvarnished Trump hate.

Black Lives Matter Vs. All Lives Matter

Black Lives Matter Vs. All Lives Matter

Does the phrase “Black Lives Matter” suggest that white lives, and other non-black lives, do not matter? Yes, that is exactly what the phrase now suggests, despite claims to the contrary by its supporters; explanation to follow.

There is a difference between the sentiment (lower case letters) “black lives matter” (which I think, Neo-Nazi skinheads aside, most people agree with – yes black lives do matter) and the organization or group who call themselves Black Lives Matter (their site is (Link): here).

The leaders of the BLM group have (Link): admitted to being Marxists.

For further research: (Link): (video on You Tube): Black Lives Matter is a MARXIST, Anarchist Movement and They Admit It! 

The BLM (Black Lives Matter) group is not really about racism, fighting racism, and at this point, the many protests (affiliated with them or not), are not about fighting racism, or about George Floyd.

It’s all about overturning the entire American nation – ditching all of American history, free market capitalism, and ushering in some kind of Maoist, socialist hell-scape. That is their goal.

(Some of the black members of BLM, or those sympathetic to their group, are not above trying to exploit white guilt to get monetary funds – I may be mentioning more about that in a future post.

So, their concern is not about equal opportunity for, or gaining respect for, black people with this crowd; it’s about Marxism and getting money.

White, left wing authors who sell books about “white fragility” are also con artists, getting a piece of this pie. )
