Five items in total…

“They don’t want ‘common ground’, or our understanding, these totalitarian ideologues want the total destruction of any opinion that disagrees with them.” – Wes Walker, “If you need more proof Cher’s insane – read her latest anti-Trump screed” Clash Daily, June 3rd, 2019.

“If you are a woman reading this, I have failed you. Through my silence and an uninterrogated collective misogyny, I have failed you. I have helped and continue to help perpetuate sexism. I know about how we hold onto forms of power that dehumanize you only to elevate our sense of masculinity. I recognize my silence as an act of violence. For this, I sincerely apologize.” – George Yancy, a philosophy professor at Emory University, quoted by K. Walker in “NY Times op-ed: Male feminist apologizes for being a heterosexual male” – Clash Daily, June 4th, 2019.

“Iron-fisted Marxists stuck to revolution and purges for takeover of populations. Velvet-gloved neo-Marxists and their secular humanist colleagues prefer infiltration, ‘education,’ and shaming. The methods, whether hard or soft, sudden or gradual, are equally ruthless. They must be because the mission to pit the world and its inhabitants against their very substance and nature calls for action free of scruples. Where harsh force won’t work, subversion must be applied, so as to weaken resistance.” – Anthony J. DeBlasi, “The Marxist ‘liberation’ hoax” – American Thinker,
June 8th, 2019.

“The bright minds at the TDSB (Toronto District School Board) who put together the new dress code don’t say whether such sleepwear can be a nightgown, drawstring pants, straight pajamas or a Victoria Secret-style Teddy… I guess that’s open to interpretation, along with the myriad of tops and bottoms that will soon be perfectly acceptable to wear in class: Tops that are backless, bare the midriff and have plunging necklines that expose cleavage, as long as they cover ‘nipples’… This is all contained in the new dress code along with the permission to wear bottoms that expose legs, thighs and hips as long as ‘groin and buttocks’ are covered.” – Sue-Ann Levy, “The nearly naked truth about TDSB’s new dress code policy” – Toronto Sun, June 7th, 2019.

“Mayor Pete and his daddy love the socialist Antonio Gramsci, who said, ‘Socialism is precisely the religion which must overwhelm Christianity[.] … In the new order, socialism will triumph by first capturing the culture via infiltration of schools, universities, churches and the media by transforming the consciousness of society’… They could not beat us from without, but they are quietly succeeding from within. We are one fraudulent major Democrat election win away from having real justice slip away. Hannity likes to say ‘we’ll lose the country as we know it’ – but what does that even mean?… The reality is that we are in grave danger… Socialism is a horrific political cancer – and we have it.” – Peter J. Kennedy, “Are we the stupidest generation?” – American Thinker, June 7th, 2019.

Six items in total…

“Our work against organized hate is ongoing, and we will continue to review individuals, Pages, groups and content against our Community Standards.” – BuzzFeed News, “Facebook will ban Faith Goldy and Canadian White Nationalist groups in its latest crackdown” – April 8th, 2019.

“If you censor speech, you break faith with Canadians because you say we are not to be trusted with dangerous ideas and your job is to save us from ourselves. In which case it is impossible to understand why we should be trusted with ballots.” – John Robson, “Censoring free speech breaks faith with Canadians. Don’t go there” – National Post, June 4th, 2019.

“President Donald Trump criticized social media companies after Facebook banned a number of extremist figures, declaring that he was ‘monitoring and watching, closely!!’… Trump, who tweeted and re-tweeted complaints Friday and Saturday, said he would ‘monitor the censorship of American speech on social media platforms.’ He has previously asserted that social media companies exhibit bias against conservatives, something the companies have rejected as untrue.” – Assoc. Press, “Freedom of speech! Trump lashes out at social media companies after Facebook bans dangerous individuals” – Toronto Sun, May 4th, 2019.

“It is wrongheaded in the extreme to give a bunch of self-righteous, politically correct bureaucrats and academic grandees the authority to define what constitutes hateful speech, then determine whether someone is guilty of it… Consider that from the time the CHRC was given the power to go after hate speech (1977) until it overstepped its bounds and charged several journalists for complaining about Muslim extremism (2006-09), the CHRC had a 100% conviction rate… Every person who was ever dragged before one of its kangaroo courts was found guilty.” – Lorne Gunter, “ Why Canada’s hate speech provisions were wrong then and still wrong now” – Toronto Sun, June 4th, 2019.

“On May 31, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signed a bill that prohibits anti-Semitism in public schools and universities throughout the state. However, the legislation also equates criticism of Israel with anti-Semitism, effectively censoring the advocacy of Palestinian rights… Two days before DeSantis officially signed HB 741 into law in Florida, he carried out a symbolic signing during a ceremonial state cabinet meeting in Israel. The session featured a variety of Israeli speakers and culminated with Florida lawmakers issuing a declaration of support for the country.” – Michael Arria, “Florida’s Governor just signed a bill that will censor criticism of Israel throughout the state’s public schools” – Mondoweiss, June 6th, 2019.

“Hungarian leader Viktor Orban and Canada’s Dr. Jordan Peterson met last week and ‘slammed Illegal Immigration as well as the ideological premise of ‘political correctness which in their view ‘make sensible public discussions virtually impossible’… Peterson also said that Islam is not compatible with democracy and the issue is not ‘allowed to be discussed’, a message which has been repeatedly expressed by Jihad Watch… His latest defense of free speech couldn’t have come at a better time. News emerged in Canada this week that opposition Conservative leader Andrew Scheer threw Tory MP Michael Cooper out of a House of Commons ‘Justice and Human Rights’ committee hearing – examining online hate – after Cooper’s confrontation with a Muslim witness.” – Christine Douglass-Williams, “Professor Jordan Peterson declares “Islam is not compatible with democracy” amid Canada’s battle for free speech” – Jihad Watch, June 5th, 2019.

“Random Quotations – Israel

Saturday, June 8th, 2019

Five items in total…

“Certainly, the voting record in Congress would suggest that there are a lot of congress critters who embrace dual loyalty, with evidence that the loyalty is not so much dual as skewed in favor of Israel. Any bill relating to Israel or to Jewish collective interests, like the currently fashionable topic of anti-Semitism, is guaranteed a 90% plus approval rating no matter what it says or how much it damages actual U.S. interests.” – Philip Giraldi, “No, dual loyalty isn’t okay” – The Unz Review, March 12th, 2019.

“On May 31, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signed a bill that prohibits anti-Semitism in public schools and universities throughout the state. However, the legislation also equates criticism of Israel with anti-Semitism, effectively censoring the advocacy of Palestinian rights… Two days before DeSantis officially signed HB 741 into law in Florida, he carried out a symbolic signing during a ceremonial state cabinet meeting in Israel. The session featured a variety of Israeli speakers and culminated with Florida lawmakers issuing a declaration of support for the country.” – Michael Arria, “Florida’s Governor just signed a bill that will censor criticism of Israel throughout the state’s public schools” – Mondoweiss, June 6th, 2019.

“Israel works hard to influence the United States at all levels. Its tentacles dig deep, now extending to local and state government levels where candidates for office can expect to be grilled by Jewish constituents regarding their views on the Middle East. The constituents often insist that the responses be provided in writing. The candidates being grilled understand perfectly well that their answers will determine what kind of press coverage and level of donations they will receive in return.” – Philip Giraldi, “Yet another senator from Israel” – The Unz Review, April 9th, 2019.

“Israel’s three largest banks – Hapoalim Bank, Leumi Bank and Mizrahi Tefahot Bank – have all been ordered to pay record fines, which collectively are set to total over $1 billion, to the U.S. government after the banks were found to have actively colluded with thousands of wealthy Americans in massive tax-evasion schemes… The scandal, though it has been reported on in Israeli media, has garnered little attention in the United States. The media black-out has been so surprising it was even directly mentioned by the Times of Israel, given that similar revelations about other banks and offshore tax-evasion schemes – such as those contained within the Panama Papers – led to global protests and even the resignations of some world leaders.” – Bradford Hanson, “Israel’s biggest banks helped US Jews break tax laws” – National Vanguard, March 25th, 2019.

“AIPAC (the American Israel Political Action Committee) is a seriously threatening organization with income of more than $100 million per annum, nearly 400 employees, 100,000 members, seventeen regional offices, and a ‘vast pool of donors.’ It clearly includes a lot of smart and savvy folks who know a lot about what is going on in the Middle East, but its panels will not include a single word about shooting unarmed protesters, declaring Israel to be a ‘nation state for Jews alone,’ its own acceptance of laws attacking freedom of speech, or its use of Jewish donated money to corrupt the American political system encouraging ‘allegiance to a foreign country’ on the part of U.S. citizens.” – Philip Giraldi, “AIPAC is coming to town – again!” – The Unz Review, March 19th, 2019.

Random Quotations – LGBTQ

Six items in total…

“The ‘trans woman’ never becomes a true woman, but is forever in transition, permanently rowing against the tide of biology. But the diagnosis ‘transsexual’ wasn’t meant to last long. By 1980 in American politics the bold vanguard of homosexual empire building needed a new outpost to plant their flag. The mental disorder ‘transsexualism’ was fast-tracked to become a non-disorder, just a happenstance of mind called transgenderism. The DSM IV published in 1994 introduced the term ‘gender identity disorder’. Then in the DSM V in 2013, the process of normalizing a gross abnormality in the most fundamental psychological identification of human experience, i.e. whether one is a male or a female, was completed. Transgenderism stopped being an identity disorder at all. It became merely a ‘dysphoria’ or an unpleasant feeling.” – Deborah C. Tyler, “Is transexualism a disassociative personality disorder?” – American Thinker, April 12th, 2019.

“A reminder that Catholics should not support or attend LGBTQ “Pride Month” events held in June. They promote a culture and encourage activities that are contrary to Catholic faith and morals. They are especially harmful for children.” – Bishop Thomas Tobin (Providence, RI) quoted by Pam Key in “ABC’s Hostin: I know Jesus would be attending a Pride Parade” – Breitbart, June 3rd, 2019.

“Japan’s government should stop forcing transgender people to be surgically sterilized if they want legal recognition of their gender identity, Human Rights Watch said in a report released today. Requiring a medical intervention as a condition of having their gender identity legally recognized violates Japan’s human rights obligations and runs counter to international medical standards.” – Eurasia Review, “Japan is compelling sterilization of transgender people, says HRW” – March 20th, 2019.

“Folks, LGBTQ activists’ domination of our culture has come a long way from the days when they claimed they only wanted tolerance. Today, they demand that we bend a knee in total submission and approval of their lifestyle in education, entertainment media, and even Christian churches. LGBTQ activists are aggressively seeking to ban the Bible, declaring it bigoted hate speech. LGBTQ activists seek to make it illegal to counsel those who wish to transition from LGBTQ lifestyles.” – Lloyd Marcus, “Ignorance, fear, and LGBTQ” – American Thinker, May 2nd, 2019.

“The U.S. organizers of a ‘Straight Pride’ event in Boston planned for August sparked outrage on Wednesday after saying on their website that ‘straight people are an oppressed majority’… ‘We will fight for the right of straights everywhere to express pride in themselves without fear of judgment and hate,’ one of the event’s organizers John Hugo, a Republican candidate in the 2018 mid-term elections, said on the website… ‘The day will come when straights will finally be included as equals among all of the other orientations’.” – Reuters, “Boston ‘Straight Pride’ event sparks controversy” – Toronto Sun, June 5th, 2019.

“Although the pride flag can and is being flown elsewhere on embassy grounds, including inside embassies and on exterior walls, the decision not to allow it on the official flagpole stands in contrast to President Donald Trump’s claim to be a leader in supporting LGBTQ rights overseas. Trump’s administration has announced a campaign to decriminalize homosexuality overseas and this month issued a tweet and formal statement to ‘celebrate LGBT Pride Month and recognize the outstanding contributions LGBT people have made’.” – Josh Lederman, “Trump admin tells U.S. embassies they can’t fly pride flag on flagpoles” – NBC News, June 7th, 2019.
