“In 1997 Bill Clinton told a gathering of young White college students in Oregon that America was about to embark on its third great revolution. The first being gaining independence from England, the second the ending of slavery, and the third would be when America was no longer a European country… The young White college students in Oregon roared their approval of the demise of everything their ancestors created; they gave their thunderous applause to the idea of the suicide of their race… Such vicious self-loathing among those so young is deeply disturbing.” – Douglas Mercer, “The third American revolution” – National Vanguard, July 1st, 2020.

“We actually do have an ideological frame…,myself and Alicia, in particular, are trained organizers… We are trained Marxists… We are super versed on, sort of, ideological theories.” – Patrisse Cullors, quoted by Alicia Luke in “BLM founder: ‘Goal’ is to remove Trump; reveals ‘Marxist’ ideology” – Freedom Outpost, June 22nd, 2020.

“We will act quickly to improve museum processes and our policies, and to rebuild relationships and trust with our staff and those we have let down, especially the Black and Indigenous communities, people of colour and LGBTQ2+ communities… We apologize unreservedly for what has happened and we know that the fight against systemic racism, homophobia, inequality and all forms of othering must be ongoing, and must be a priority.” – Board chairwoman Pauline Rafferty, quoted in “Museum of Human Rights CEO resigns after allegations of systemic racism” – News, Toronto Sun, June 25th, 2020.

“We’re witnessing organization after organization being bullied into searching out thoughtcrime. We’re talking about not some KKK proclamations, but cases where people were punished for common sense that was found offensive. Even a UCLA professor may be placed under investigation for reading Martin Luther King’s ‘Letter from a Birmingham Jail’ to his students, or his colleague could be suspended from his job after refusing a student’s request to effectively cancel final exams for black students amid protests over the death of George Floyd.” – Veronika Kyrylenko, “Thoughtcrimes now prosecuted in the land of the free” – American Thinker, June 22nd, 2020.

“Early yesterday morning I received a worried note from one of our regular columnists saying our website no longer came up in any Google search results… Google and Facebook are the top gatekeepers to the global Internet, and in early May they had both purged us, with Facebook blocking our content and Google de-ranking all of our pages… Google search results had previously placed many of our pieces very high, but now they no longer appeared at all unless one included ‘unz’ in the search string. Thus, only those actually looking for us would ever find our content… But this latest blow was even more severe, and now neither searches with nor without ‘unz’ ever seemed to return any of our pages. Google had apparently ‘disappeared’ us from the entire Internet.”
