The Morning Rant

During his sermon a couple of weeks ago, our pastor mentioned that recent events had caused to think about “privilege”, what it is and what it means. He suggested that a better word for it might be ‘blessings’. He didn’t specifically say this, but that fits in very well with the idea that progressivism is a heresy of Christianity. It’s actually not dignified enough to be a heresy, it’s more like a parody or lampoon.

The word ‘blessing’ carries with it the idea of fortune and favor, and concomitant gratitude, while ‘privilege’ immediately brings to mind envy, resentment, and bitterness. All of progressive religion is wrapped around those three (negative) things.…

…Another aspect of the progressive religion is that its disciples are taught that the reason they don’t have what they think they want (influence, success, a girlfriend) is because someone is deliberately preventing them from getting these things. This entity has been called such names as “The Man” or “The System” but lately has been called “White Privilege.” Like this is a zero-sum game where all of the white guys have taken all of it before anyone had the chance.

The Morning Briefing: We’ve Reached the Book Burning Phase of 2020 Riot Wokeness

You may have seen the phrase “decolonize your bookshelf” floating around. In essence, it is about actively resisting and casting aside the colonialist ideas of narrative, storytelling, and literature that have pervaded the American psyche for so long.

If you are white, take a moment to examine your bookshelf. What do you see? What books and authors have you allowed to influence your worldview, and how you process the issues of racism and prejudice toward the disenfranchised?

 

This racist drivel is from taxpayer-supported NPR.org. Several thoughts occur to me:

  1. Note how only whites have to examine our bookshelves? I have to assume that’s because blacks don’t have bookshelves seeing as how they are functionally illiterate.
  2. How DO I process ‘racism’? I don’t. It’s not an issue unless YOU are a racist and are constantly bringing it up. Hint: identity politics is nothing BUT racism.
  3. Disenfranchised? Again, a straw-man argument. If YOU are ‘disenfranchised’ you have done it to yourself. Your choices do that. Ditto for ‘marginalized’.

I refuse to examine my bookshelves, except to add to them using books most likely written by dead white males.

Seven Thoughts on the Civil War the Other Side Wants So Badly

6. The suburbs aren’t burning despite all the calls to burn them. It isn’t hard to understand why.

Brandon Morse has a great piece at RedState warning the Antifa clowns that if they actually follow through on their threats to invade the suburbs, they won’t like the result.

“Suburbanites have a lot more to lose and are going to be a lot more apt to go to extremes to make sure no harm befalls what they’re protecting,” he says. “Too much rides on it. In the city, you were the pack of lions seeking whom you may devour. In the burbs, you’re the gazelle.”

That’s certainly true, and the rioters know it. Some of the Antifa clowns have been trying to rally their people to descend on the suburbs, and so far it hasn’t panned out.

Morse’s warning is one reason why. Know what the other one is?

Because the pasty honkies in the black sweatshirts live in the suburbs. Where do you think mom’s basement is, Watts? They’re not going to burn down their own neighborhoods; that’s for the proles to do, not the Marxist vanguard.

Black Lives Matter: Nothing but domestic terrorists

BLM claim they want “justice,” which is an outright lie.  The last thing they want is to let any of their pet causes make their way through the American judicial system.  They want special treatment, but more than that, they want mob rule.

BLM: the slaves of the Democrat Party.

BREAKING: Antifa terrorists to be bused to Sparta, Illinois with orders to burn farm houses and kill livestock in rural “white” areas

Today Natural News has learned that Antifa operatives are organizing a plan to bus large numbers of Antifa terrorists to the vicinity of Sparta, Illinois, where they will be directed to target rural white Americans by burning farm houses and killing livestock. The purpose of the attack, according to sources, is so that Antifa can send a message to white America that “not even rural whites are safe” from the reach of Antifa, and that if their radical left-wing demands are not yet, all of America will burn (not just the cities).

Read the whole thing.

Why You Shouldn’t Add The Q To LGBT

Just as the LGBT person does not exist, neither does the movement or the coalition in actuality. LGBTetc. is an ideological and socio-political construct. It certainly does not refer to a unified, naturally occurring people group.

I agree it isn’t ‘naturally occurring’. It’s a personal choice. It certainly IS a unified group though. It consists exclusively of mentally-ill sexual perverts.

In their panic, the idiots in our government are creating a famine. 

“The shut down and slowed down packing plants are the reason. I don’t know what to do to get them back online. Some workers aren’t coming in. Some truly are sick. To maintain social distancing they had to “slow the chain”.

Because our ‘betters’ have no idea of how things like food get to the grocery stores. Because our ‘betters’ overreact to everything, like a new strain of flu from China.

Because our ‘betters’ are stupid. Because our ‘betters’ are liberals who think they are God.

Are We Witnessing a Targeted Hit Against Trump Voters? – American Greatness

Family-owned shops and workshops, the backbone of America, are closed. Fast-food franchises remain open—drive-through windows are operating at full tilt—but independently owned restaurants are shuttered or trying to survive at diminished capacity doing takeout only.

Conveniently, if not coincidentally, small-business owners make up an important segment of Trump’s base.…

Horowitz: While Americans are locked up without judicial review, courts grant new rights to criminal aliens!

Let’s review the outcomes from the COVID-19 crisis:

  • Most sweeping restrictions, surveillance, and confinement of Americans indefinitely without due process in the history of America? Check!
  • Endless welfare, debt, and spending? Check!
  • Mass release of criminals? Check!
  • More foreign workers as a time of record unemployment? Check!
  • More rights for illegal aliens to come and remain here? Check!

Why is it that every policy outcome from this crisis is a long-standing liberal priority, even when the several outcomes contradict the rationale underlying some of the others?

New York Will Allow Transgender Minors To Change Sex On Birth Certificate

“It shouldn’t take a minor and his family suing the state to get their rights recognized, but with this announcement, New York state eliminates an outdated and unjust barrier to transgender minors’ ability to be themselves and have accurate, essential identity documents,” Omar Gonzalez-Pagan, senior attorney at Lambda Legal, said in a written statement according to Dallas Voice.

What we have here is a group suing for a minor’s ‘right’ to OFFICIALLY LIE. There is no such thing as a ‘transgender.’ You are born male or female in every cell of your body. Period. Anything else is a mental illness. This will be true until you can change the chromosomes in every cell of your body.

Of course, lying is what the Left does best. Using the police power of the state to assist lying is pure evil.

Never Marry a Feminist | Suzanne Venker

If you believe sex roles are a result a patriarchy designed to disempower women, rather than on what they’re actually based on—the biological differences between the sexes—your relationship is doomed. A successful marriage relationship demands a deep understanding of male and female nature.

A strong marriage is in fact predicated on sexual inequality, or on how much couples let their differences shine.

Just say ‘no’ to feminists. They are a waste of time.

Environmentalists Want To Take Your Food, Your Home, And Your Children

  • The World Scientists’ Warning of a Climate Emergency letter published in the Bioscience journal boasted the signatures of 11,000 scientists lending the full weight of their useless degrees to order that “the world population must be stabilized—and, ideally, gradually reduced—within a framework that ensures social integrity.” Reducing populations for social integrity was the specialty of such innovative environmental activists as Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin, Pol Pot, and Mohammed…

  • And so a letter in Lancet Planetary Health by assorted scientists, grad students, people who claim to be scientists, and people who once watched an episode of Cosmos, demanded that meat consumption drop by 2030…

  • “We need another kind of escape route—away from our ideologies of ownership and property, and toward more collective, healthy, and just cities,’ the socialist rag argues.

What do you mean ‘we’? You keep using that word. I don’t think it means what you think it means.
