The Casual Bigotry of Elite Black Americans: National Museum of African American History & Culture

 

Today I came upon a tweet by Byron York that startled me. York’s tweet included an attachment from the National Museum of African American History & Culture describing what they call “Aspects and Assumptions of Whiteness & White Culture in the United States”. Let me post Mr. York’s tweet below.

Quote of the Day: Being Woke

 

“The goal of our culture now is not the emancipation of the individual from the group, but the permanent definition of the individual by the group. We used to call this bigotry. Now we call it being woke.” – Andrew Sullivan

I know it is Andrew Sullivan. And he helped build the culture he is decrying in this quote. But a true statement is a true statement. If you are woke, you are a bigot. Even Andrew Sullivan realizes that.

This came up in my Twitter feed and I clicked on the video without actually reading the tweet. Half way through I was pretty sure it was an ad for The Daily Wire. Then I looked at the tweet more carefully and realized the video was compiled by Media Matters to show us that the […]

In hearing about the latest outrage, with the young boys waiting for their bus after the March for Life in Washington, D.C., I had to look up another “new” word. Apparently, this is part of the process of hate that has permeated our culture in this modern world. Doxxing: (from dox, abbreviation of documents) or […]

Short and Sweet: The conservatives that jumped to the conclusion the smiling kid at the Pro-Life March face-to-face with the Native American was hateful are a disgrace. One understands the left’s bias, which is actually bigotry, but when conservatives join their bandwagon and railroad a teenager based solely on a smile one needs to take […]

No More Protected Classes

 

@susanquinn has brought to our attention the new Conscience and Religious Freedom Division of the Department of Health and Human Services, and specifically this division’s director. On the one hand I applaud the concept that the religious freedom of healthcare providers should be aggressively defended, but on the other hand I cannot but see this as a bad omen.

You see, this is an admission that religious people are the objects of discrimination by our own government, by businesses, and by other groups of people. But it is also yet another declaration both that our government needs to protect entire groups of people from other groups of people, and that the federal government is the sole arbiter of which groups get protecting from whom, from what, and where those protections extend.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America are not all surprised by President Trump firing Secretary of State Rex Tillerson given their distant relationship and they hope Mike Pompeo can be effective as America’s top diplomat.  They also unload on Hillary Clinton after her ugly overseas explanations that Trump won the red states by appealing to people who don’t want blacks to have rights or women to have jobs and that white married women backed Trump because they did what their husbands or bosses told them to do.  And they slam liberal school administrators for actively supporting Wednesday’s National School Walkout to push for gun control.

Are You a Racist or a Bigot?

 

At the Diaspora Museum here in Israel, I saw a video of an Ethiopian Woman, and this was her story:

As a child, her mother deserted her with no explanation. Understandably her sense of abandonment was overwhelming. She waited for her mother to return; she checked every woman on the streets to see if one might be her mother. She never saw her again. When she came to Israel, she continued relentlessly to search for her mother. In the meantime, she became a sculptor, married, and had a family.

She said that once she became a mother herself, she stopped looking for her mother, although many of her sculptures represent her mother; when she sells one, she makes another to replace it. In telling her story, not once did she claim racism, although Ethiopian Jews are known to be victims of racism in Israel. She knew she was entitled to choose her view of the world.

Note that this is merely a current list of evil ideas.  It changes by the week, if not the day. 1. Capitalism is inherently and demonstrably superior to socialism (including “democratic socialism”). 2. Ronald Reagan was an excellent president—the best of my lifetime. Preview Open
