Feinstein: Require Schools to ‘Teach’ Climate Change

See the source image

Here’s more mischief that has to be stopped: Senator Diane Feinstein has proposed a “Climate Change Education Act” that would require public school teachers to teach “human-induced climate change” in every school in America (https://www.breitbart.com/environment/2019/02/20/dianne-feinstein-pushes-funding-for-climate-change-indoctrination/).

Here we go again with the “immediate danger” of imaginary “climate change.” Teachers will have to be trained and mobilized (more money! more money!) to convince American children that the “evidence for human-induced climate change is overwhelming and undeniable.

So no one is denying it? Coulda fooled me! And the evidence is not so much “overwhelming” as it is cherry-picked and manufactured.

Climate Change, which used to be “Global Warming,” is the religion of humanism’s End Times scenario, to be averted by ponying up higher taxes and giving government vast new powers that it doesn’t have. To require it to be taught in all our schools can be seen as an unconstitutional attempt to establish a religion.

Our public schools and universities are the temples of humanism, and teachers’ unions and college professors are its priesthood.

The 2016 Democrat platform proposed to give the attorney general power to “investigate” the supposed “crime” of “climate change denial.” Got that? It would be made against the law to disbelieve in man-made climate change. No First Amendment for you! Whoever has the keys to the jail house would get to decide what constitutes the settled science.

There is no bigger threat to America’s survival as a free country than the Democrat Party.


Another Good Guy Victory!

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?


My Newswithviews Column, March 7 (‘Creepy Little People’)

John Dewey introduced and preached the idea of schoolteachers as change agents. I wonder if he ever dreamed how many other groups of creepy little people would try to earn that title.

https://newswithviews.com/creepy-little-people/

Yes, they’re out there in the shadows, changing our world out from under us, accountable to no one.

I’m sure their master, Satan, is pleased with their progress so far.


Inside Facebook’s Censorship Playground

See the source image

Creepy little people, nameless, faceless, all of them hidden behind the scenes, in places where they can reach out and screw up our lives–

Whoa! It’s not a nightmare. No waking up from this one. In fact, it’s a rather long article from Vanity Fair, Feb. 26: “Men Are Scum”: Inside Facebook’s War on Hate Speech” (https://www.vanityfair.com/news/2019/02/men-are-scum-inside-facebook-war-on-hate-speech). I have to admit it scared me. Scared me pretty good.

The author had a free pass to the deliberations of Facebook’s “shadow government.” You wanna know what that is? It’s a group of “Obama administration refugees [in their 30s and early 40s] eager to maintain some semblance of the pragmatism that has lost favor in Washington.” But this is a left-winger writing, so “pragmatism” doesn’t mean what you think it means. Not by a long shot.

Heading this little group is a former prosecutor, Monika Bickert, backed up by a few dozen “deputies.” They all think they’re very important! And they are, I guess: they get to decide what some 2 billion people can or can’t say on Facebook.

Here are some of their detectable presuppositions–this is what makes them scary.

They really believe they have the right, the wisdom, and the authority to decide what people ought to be allowed to say.

They believe government has the authority to sort its people into groups and rank the groups according to whatever standard the government thinks is just. Thus some groups have greater rights than others.

They believe “rights” are granted by government, not by God, and that it’s one of government’s jobs to decide which group’s rights get to be queen for a day on any given day.

Oh, and all those new “genders”–they’re all real. If you think it’s only male and female, you’re a Hater.

And of course they believe there is such a thing as Hate Speech, that it should be silenced–then there won’t be any hate, right?–and that it’s government’s job to define it and stifle it.

And in all of the above, for “government” read “Facebook.”

So I’ll have to post a picture of a puppy up above this article, or one of those faceless little gawnks will censor me.


Good News: President Trump Acts to Protect Free Speech on Campus

See the source image

It’s about time!

President Donald Trump today told an audience at CPAC that he will sign an executive order to cut off federal research grants to colleges and universities that don’t support free speech (https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2019/mar/2/donald-trump-says-he-will-sign-executive-order-pro/?utm_source=RSS_Feed&utm_medium=RSS).

The announcement comes after a conservative student was physically assaulted at Berkeley–something which Far Left crazies have been doing rather a lot of, lately.

The president said action is need to protect those who “challenge ridiculous ideas” promoted by the universities.

As the saying goes, “gotta start somewhere.” This is a good start. More is needed. Our whole “higher education” establishment is PC–Politically Correct and Philosophically Corrupt. We do not need to be funding them as hatcheries of neo-Stalinism.

Take away the tax money, and watch the Far Left shrivel up and die.


‘So You Think the Fight is Over?’ (2014)

See the source image

Remember this? In 2014 the lesbian mayor of Houston–shame on you, Houston–seeking to stifle opposition to her “transgender” bathroom ordinance, demanded that all pastors send her their sermons and other writings so she could vet them for “hate” or whatever.

https://leeduigon.com/2014/10/30/so-you-think-the-fight-is-over/

This flagrant, off-the-wall insult to religious liberty and free speech earned her the loud disapproval of practically the whole nation, so she deemed it the better part of valor to withdraw her demands. It seems nobody thought a pastor ought to have his sermon approved by the mayor before he delivered it.

I wonder what they’re thinking now.


‘P.C. Police “Diversity Squad” (Sponsors Wanted)’ (2016)

Cop shows of the Democrat-operated future–that ought to keep you awake nights. Here’s an example.

https://leeduigon.com/2016/01/31/p-c-police-diversity-squad-sponsors-wanted/

Think I’m kidding? Federal “investigation” and prosecution of Climate Change Denial was on their 2016 platform; you could look it up.

It’s up to all of us to work hard to make sure that future doesn’t happen.


Did Google Manipulate YouTube Search Results?

See the source image

Most of us around here believe the social media actively censor conservative posts and videos in favor of Far Left Crazy videos. Some of us have experienced it for ourselves. Nevertheless, last month the Google CEO told Congress that the folks at Google never “manually intervene” on any particular search result.

Now Breitbart.com claims to have received, via a leak from a Google engineer, information that Google routinely tries to skew search results in favor of left-wing causes (https://www.breitbart.com/tech/2019/01/16/google-youtube-search-blacklist-smoking-gun/).

Breitbart says Google has “manipulated YouTube search results for abortion, Maxine Waters, David Hogg,” and others.

After a Far Left “journalist” complained about too many pro-life videos on YouTube, Google went to work and pushed pro-life videos out of the top ten search results for abortion and replaced them with pro-abortion videos.

If this is true–and I find it hard to believe that it isn’t–then really the time has come for some kind of anti-trust action to be taken against the social media giants. It certainly looks like they’re using their technology to try to suppress conservative opinion and promote the agenda of Democrats and their Far Left Crazy clients.

If there were meaningful competition in the social media market, then Google’s Far Left prejudices would be their own business. But such competition does not as yet exist, and you can be sure there are people working to make sure it never will. We don’t have time to wait for competitive social media platforms to grow and become just as strong as Google–not with a national election coming up next year.

Because if Google’s Democrat friends ever get back into power, they’ll see to it that there’s no way to get rid of them.

Welcome to Venezuela North.


My Newswithviews Column, Dec. 20 (‘The Mask Falls Off’)

I will never understand why Americans voted last month to give the House of Representatives back to the Democrats. We must be terribly short on self-respect.

It’s the nearest we could come to selling it to a hostile foreign power.

Or to space aliens.


‘Flash! Eco-Fascist Prosecutor Backs Down’ (2016)

See the source image

Lest we forget! Here’s a story that would have turned out very differently, had Hillary Far Left Crazy Clinton been elected president two years ago.

https://leeduigon.com/2016/07/19/flash-eco-fascist-prosecutor-backs-down/

I fear a lot of Americans have forgotten just how serious Democrats were–and are!–about prosecuting the “crime” of “climate change denial.” They weren’t joking, boys ‘n’ girls: they really do want to pack you off to prison if you don’t believe in Global Warming/Climate Change.

This little flutter by the attorney general in the U.S. Virgin Islands was only their first tentative test of the political waters, to see if they could get away with it. When they ran into more opposition than they bargained for, they backed off.

But don’t think for a minute that they’ve abandoned their dream of jailing people for having wrong opinions.

Please don’t ever give them the opportunity to prove that I was right.
