“It blows my mind that despite losing mega-millions Hollywood is undeterred, hellbent on cramming SJW political messaging down our throats. As a Christian, I believe a spirit of anti-Christ is driving Hollywood’s financially illogical behavior. Hollywood producers love to poke fun of and demonize Christians. They freely use Jesus’ name in vain. And yet, they would never dare to use Muhammad’s name in vain… In response to the failure of the 2016 Ghostbusters movie, the filmmakers attacked the fans, calling them woman-hating trolls. The star of the ‘Batwoman’ series, Ruby Rose, attacked viewers for the show’s plummeting ratings. Rose said the show is not for old white men.” – Lloyd Marcus, “Young adults fed up with SJW and LGBTQ tyranny” – American Thinker, October 26th, 2019.

“In that order, particular identities – race, religion, ethnicity, nationality, cultural tradition, class, gender and any other category that distinguishes one ‘person’ from another – will be forbidden. There are enough statements on record from the architects and prophets of this new order to know that national sovereignty itself will have vanished. And the order will not just be somewhere else, it will be everywhere, including in what used to be the United States,” Sam Francis, quoted by Cesar Keller in “The Nobel Prize in Literature and the politics of selective outrage” – Unz Review, October 25th, 2019.

“While many students come to school with costumes, there are a number of students that don’t celebrate Halloween or may not wear a costume for a variety of reasons… It was with that in mind that we had considered the idea of not encouraging students to wear costumes this year. After hearing from students, staff and parents about that possibility, we’ve decided to as we always have and students will be able to wear their costumes at school that day. Thank you for that input.” – Roberto Wakerell-Cruz, “Halloween cancelled? Ontario school discourages costumes to ensure all kids are included” – The Post Millennial, October 18th, 2019.

“Peterson’s ‘conservative perspectives on feminism and gender,’ according to an opinion piece in The New York Times, ‘are very popular among young men and often are a path to more extreme content and ideologies.’ Think about this. Conservative speech is dangerous because it is a slippery slope to the adoption of conservative ideas? This must be satire. Do these clueless cranks know how ridiculous they sound?… It is instructive that efforts to muzzle speech almost always come from the left, not the right, because the left is insecure about the popularity of its kooky ideas.” – David Limbaugh, “The totalitarian American left” – The Patriot Post, October 18th, 2019.

“A 2015 Pew poll found that women were almost 50% more likely to support government censorship of ‘statements that are offensive to minority groups’ than were men. Women, particularly left-wing women, are more politically intolerant: one survey found that 30% of Democratic women had blocked, unfriended or stopped following someone online for their politics, as against only 8% of Republican men. The London Times reported in May 2016 that female students overwhelmingly supported censorship of university publications if these were ‘considered offensive to certain groups’.” – Guillaume Durocher, “Big mother: The decline of men and . . . truth-telling” – Unz Review, October 27th, 2019.

“What we are facing now is not partisan warfare, it’s not a mystery novel, it’s not politics-as-usual. We are facing an attempt to tear down the foundations of our republic by corrupt, unelected bureaucrats who have decided the will of voters is subordinate to their will to power. It represents a fatal threat to our system of government, and if this coup succeeds – whether through impeachment proceedings, or through an election that (if the last three years are any indication) the other side is clearly willing to steal by hook or by crook – the nation will cease to be a constitutional, democratic republic.” – Mollie Hemingway, “GOP has a choice: Fight anti-Trump coup effort or surrender government to Democrats” – The Federalist, October 25th, 2019.
