‘University: “No Such Thing as Free Speech”‘ (2015)

See the source image

From the Rutgers Looniversity student handbook, 2015: “There is no such thing as free speech.”

https://leeduigon.com/2015/08/26/university-no-such-thing-as-free-speech/

That’s gonna look pretty bad when President Trump’s executive order, cutting off research grants to all colleges and looniversities that refuse to allow free speech, goes into effect.

Then my old alma mater–where, once upon a time, “dissent” was a sacred cow–will be on the phone to me again, asking me for money.

I can hardly wait.


‘Dem Platform Committee: “Prosecute Climate Change Deniers” (2016)

See the source image

Tthey’ve got a brand-new Inquisition waiting for us

Not many people seemed to notice it at the time, but in 2016 the Democrat platform committee voted unanimously to authorize the attorney general to “investigate” the “crime” of Climbit Change Denial–that is, to criminalize the expression of a particular opinion on a controversial public issue.

It also seems that very few people remember that this was done. After all, Hillary lost, so they didn’t get a chance to put their scheme into action.

Please, remember this next year, when once again it’s time to vote. Please do not ever allow Democrats back into power. They do grow crazier with every passing year, and it’s not safe to entrust them with authority.

Because if they do get back in, this is the kind of mischief they have prepared for us.


Facebook Honcho: More Regulation Means More Freedom!

See the source image

In Nothing Studies you learn that “Wet wood burns the best.” Has Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg got a degree in Nothing Studies?

In the wake of the Christchurch, New Zealand, massacre, and the governments of New Zealand and Australia threatening to clamp down on social media content, Zuckerberg has called for “more active” government regulation of all social media, including Facebook (https://www.thesun.co.uk/tech/8756876/mark-zuckerberg-social-network-regulation-christchurch-watchdog/).

Ya see, more regulation means more freedom. Somehow. And Zuckerberg only wants government to come down on “harmful content”–wonder who gets to decide what content is harmful–“election integrity” (so The Russians can’t steal another one from another anointed Democrat candidate), privacy (they just can’t help themselves, when it comes to collecting and selling users’ private information!), and “data portability,” whatever that is. One can almost hear Sessue Hayakawa telling Alec Guinness, “Be happy in your work.”

Meaning, the government in the United Kingdom has promised to stifle Twitter and Instagram if they don’t consent to stricter regulation.

No one has asked this question: Is government any more fit to regulate the social media than the social media themselves? Is it any more honest, any more wise, any more benevolent? Do the personnel of government even obey the government’s own laws–or just ignore or circumvent them every time?

Freedom is not natural to sinners living in a fallen world. God has given us laws which, if followed, would bless us with both liberty and security. The world hates God’s laws and refuses to abide by them. The state of the world is testimony to how good an idea that is.

There is an important role for civil government in God’s scheme of things–to keep the peace, to protect us from those who would do us harm, and to punish evildoers (see Romans Chapter 13). In our Constitution, powers not specifically granted to the central government are reserved to the states and to the people.

You won’t find today’s theories of government in either the Bible or the Constitution.


My Newswithviews Column, March 28 (‘Freedom–An Endangered Species’)

See the source image

It’s so much more scientific to control people rather than letting them run free. C’mon–free-range human beings? Can’t be allowed!

https://newswithviews.com/freedom-an-endangered-species/

For sure, Britain is farther down this road than we are. But Democrats drool with envy when they see some of the speech-restricting laws that Britain’s got. Oh! Wouldn’t it be just so gratifying, to force people to say things they know are total lies, and throw them into prison if they won’t!

Why do police enforce those laws? Beats me. You’d think they’d be ashamed.


‘Feed the Kiddies Like Mrs. O Says, or Else’ (2016)

See the source image

Bon appetite!

Return with us now to those thrilling days of yesteryear, when the president’s freakin’ wife, whom no one voted for, who is accountable to no one, got to decide what millions and millions of kids in public schools could have or not have for lunch.

https://leeduigon.com/2016/03/29/feed-the-kiddies-like-mrs-o-says-or-else/

Want those days to come again?

Next election, just refrain from voting Republican.

By and by, they won’t be satisfied with controlling what your kids can eat. They’ll tell you what to eat!


Climate Cult: ‘This is How We Stopped Climate Change’

See the source image

Honest, you’ll like it! (Or else)

Paid for by the defenseless American taxpayer, National Public Radio recently featured “It’s 2050, and This Is How We Stopped Climate Change” (https://knpr.org/npr/2019-03/its-2050-and-how-we-stopped-climate-change). Yowsah, yowsah, “A world without climate change!”

Where do you even begin, with such fat-headed hubris? A world without climate change? Hey, aren’t you guys the ones who are always clubbing us over the head with “settled science”? Do any of you have a Geology 101 textbook? Aren’t you supposed to be able to look at the rocks and tell what happened in the past? I mean, how did all those seashells wind up on the tops of mountains? What are all those whale fossils doing in the middle of the Sahara Desert? Think there might have been some climate change involved there? Don’t you bother to learn your own “science”?

So where the devil was this “world without climate change”? Oh–what’s that? It couldn’t happen until you guys came along, to make it happen? Hubris, man. That’s hubris.

Anyway, here’s how they’re gonna “stop climate change” by 2050, creating a paradise on earth.

*Solar and wind power will replace any and all other methods of generating electricity, giving us a “zero-carbon world.” See, we gotta have zero greenhouse gases by 2050, or we’re all gonna die. Or something.

*”Urbanization of everything”! Oh, peachy. No more suburbs allowed, no more cars, no more private homes, shove five families into every house–a la the Soviet Union, circa 1930. All housing will be multifamily housing, you’ll walk to work and like it, and no one, but no one, will ever be stressed out by being forced to live without space, without privacy.

Wait a minute–hasn’t that book already been written? Sure it has: The Hunger Games. They want us to live like we’re in The Hunger Games.

*Cut way back on the consumption of beef, replacing it with lots and lots of artificial food brewed up in the labs (“Soylent Green is people”) and it will taste real good, you won’t want White Castles anymore.

What do you want to bet our noble and glorious leaders, and their pet savants of Science, will continue to enjoy lavish mansions, private jets, limousines, and all the beef they can stuff into their mouths with both hands?

Boy, if we actually let them do this stuff to us–! Well, then we’d deserve it, wouldn’t we?

 

 


NY Mayor to Force ‘Meatless Mondays’

See the source image

I wonder if they should call it “Brainless Monday.” But that would imply the presence of a brain elsewhere in the week.

Demonstrating once again that there is no aspect of life so mundane, so trivial, but that Democrats lust to control it, New York Mayor “Bill De Blasio” (real name, Warren Wilhelm Jr.) has announced that he will enforce “Meatless Monday” at all the city’s public schools (https://www.dailywire.com/news/44523/nyc-mayor-bill-de-blasio-announces-meatless-emily-zanotti).

Why? Oh, come on. “To Save The Earth,” he intones. “To Keep Our Planet Green For Generations To Come.” “Because I’m a big shot and I can do whatever I like.” Oops, strike that last remark.

And so there will be “all-vegetarian menus” at all the city’s public schools on every Monday, beginning with the 2019 school year. Why does this remind me of President *Batteries Not Including scarfing down double handfuls of Kobe Beef while his wife tried to control all of the lunches at all of the schools in the country? But Saving The Planet is always “Austerity for thee, but not for me.”

Think De Blasio himself is going to go meatless every Monday? Give a convincing and coherent explanation, in 25 words or less, of why you think that, and win a genuine Al Gore T-shirt.


Flee High New York Taxes–and Get Audited

He’s after your money.

They can’t afford to build a Berlin Wall all around the state of New York to keep people in, but they’ve been doing the next best thing: if you move out of New York to escape high taxes, they’ll audit you (https://www.foxnews.com/politics/new-york-goes-after-residents-fleeing-overtaxed-blue-state-for-low-tax-states-with-intrusive-audits).

Far Left New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo laments, “This is the flip side [of federal tax cut legislation]. Tax the rich, tax the rich, tax the rich. We did. Now, God forbid, the rich leave.”

Duh–!

New York has a $2.3 billion budget deficit, and, in recent years, has lost 48,000 residents who fled the state’s high tax regime, where the top 1 percent pay nearly half the taxes in the state. Illinois, another Blue State paradise, has lost 45,000 residents.

“The rich” don’t want to stay there and get raped, so they leave; and New York pursues them with “intrusive audits,” calling them “defectors.” Iron Curtain, anyone?

But they can’t lower the taxes, because then the Democrat Party couldn’t dole out free stuff to its voting base.

If they could afford to build a wall, they would.


Another Good Guy Victory!

See the source image

Something tells me I’m gonna need the happy puppy to get this once past the censors.

Wow, three in one week! That’s got to be some kind of record.

We salute Marquitta Ford, who just a few days ago finally prevailed in a two-year-long struggle against PC tyranny in the state of Georgia (https://www.massresistance.org/docs/gen3/18a/MR-GA-Marquitta-protest-and-arrest/court-win.html). Hail, Marquitta! We need more like you!

In 2016, Far Left Crazy in Georgia, abetting Organized Sodomy, put on a full-court press to allow men to invade women’s public rest rooms. All alone, with a hand-lettered sign–leftids always carry professionally-printed protest signs, and we always wonder who’s paid for it–Marquitta Ford protested outside the Georgia state house. For three months. Until the state government decided “to set an example” to scare off other protesters, and tried to shoo her away to some ridiculous “free speech zone” where speech is free because no one’s there to see or hear you. When she wouldn’t go, two cops arrested her; and she spent 36 hours in the county jail.

Uh, what was her crime? Why was she in jail?

First they charged her with some horse**** about “unlawful activities” in or around the state capitol. Then they discovered the State Supreme Court had voided that law back in 2006. So then they charged her with “disobeying a lawful order of a police officer.”

Terrified of having the LBGT crowd sent after them, pro bono lawyers refused to take Ms. Ford’s case. But Mass Resistance and Eugene DelGaudio’s Public Advocate organization shopped around until they found a really good lawyer, and agreed to pony up his fee. As for Ms. Ford, she rejected offers to plea-bargain–because she wasn’t guilty of anything!

As it turned out, they tried twice to have a trial, but both times, neither of the arresting officers showed up in court. After the second no-show, the judge dismissed the case. After two years of persecution, Ms. Ford is off the hook.

Why do these things happen, in a country full of Christians? Why are Far Left extremists allowed to bully the whole population?

And why do we allow it to be so?


Another Win for the Good Guys!

Free to create his art as he sees fit

I can hardly believe it–two wins for our side in the same week! (See Monday’s post, March 4, “The Good Guys Win One”)

Yesterday the Colorado “Civil Rights” Commission agreed to drop its campaign against a Christian baker’s civil rights if he’d agree not to sue them (https://christiannews.net/2019/03/05/colorado-drops-action-against-christian-baker-who-declined-gender-transition-cake-order/).

Jack Phillips, of Masterpiece Cake Shop, was in the nooze last year when the government bullies in Colorado tried to force him to design a cake for a homosexual “wedding”–which, it being an abomination, he refused to do. The case went to the U.S. Supreme Court, who ruled that the state of Colorado had judged Phillips unfairly, being motivated by the commission’s hostility to Christians and Christian belief. [Question: In a country full of Christians, how do people who hate Christians wind up with power over Christians? Can anybody explain how that works?]

On the same day SCOTUS announced its ruling, the commission came after Phillips again, this time with a complaint that he’d refused to make a “gender transition” cake, celebrating some guy calling himself a girl–which, of course, is another abomination. So this time Phillips sued them–and this time they’ve backed down.

Now, is his persecution over, or will they go for the hat trick and try to force him to design, oh, a cake celebrating pedophilia or some such thing?

But for the time being, it has not yet been established in America that any agency of government, or any little gang of whining kooks, has the authority to dictate the content of a work of art. For the Left, stifling dissenting speech isn’t enough anymore: they want to force you to say and do things that lacerate your conscience.

May God smite them.
