OBAMA’S SOCIAL JUSTICE MILITARY EXPERIMENT

Monday, September 9th, 2019

 

 NEW YORK POST

How Obama turned the military into a social justice experiment

By Kyle Smith   September 4, 2019

A curious thing happened in the second half of the Obama era: The commander-in-chief began viewing the military less as an entity designed to destroy enemies but a tool with which to achieve progressive goals. Warriors were turned into social-justice warriors. Men and women with risible-to-nonexistent military records were made heads of the services. Navy Secretary Ray Mabus (who had logged all of two years’ service as a junior officer) named ships after Cesar Chavez and Harvey Milk.

James Hasson, a former Army captain who served in Afghanistan, stresses in “Stand Down: How Social Justice Warriors Are Sabotaging the Military” that he isn’t making a partisan, political case against President Barack Obama’s efforts to reshape the military.

He asks important, nonpartisan questions, such as what is the military really for? And is it career military people or civilian bureaucrats who are better equipped to understand how to optimize its potential?

Hasson takes a sobering look at such matters as drastically lowering standards in order to pass more women through Army Ranger school, ignoring data showing that all-male Marine units outperformed mixed-sex ones and that female recruits are more likely to suffer serious injuries.

Hasson reports on a program in which male soldiers were ordered to train in fake breasts and distended bellies so they could experience what life was like for pregnant soldiers. Ordering a recruit to do more than 10 pushups as punishment for minor misdeeds was declared unduly harsh.

The Obama policy to overturn centuries of precedent and treat troops in accordance with whatever gender identity they declared, writes Hasson, is widely deemed within the military to be unlike the issue of homosexuality. For one thing, transgender individuals were already serving. Yet because the military ranks combat readiness ahead of soothing the psyches of its members, those individuals were required to meet standards according to their immutable biological sex.

If you are born male, you may call yourself female if you like, but you will still be held to the physical-fitness standards of other biological males. (The Obama policy decreed that troops could change their gender marker without undergoing sex-reassignment surgery or making any other physical changes.)

ISLAMOMORIA – THE OPPOSITE OF ISLAMOPHOBIA

Saturday, July 20th, 2019

 

It has been amazingly easy to make the public  accept that homosexuality is normal and that Islam is peaceful by accusing people of being homophobic or Islamophobic.  This article tells you how it was so easily done.    Nancy   

Islamomoria — Countering the Charge of “Islamophobia”

JUL 18, 2019   9:00 AM  BY MATEEN ELASS35 COMMENTS

EXCERPT FROM THIS ARTICLE:  Islamomoria, then, would describe the pollyannish assessment of Islam as a religion or worldview which ignores the jihad mandate, hatred for the disbeliever, sex slavery, inherent gender inequality, and imposition of Shari’a law upon all (including execution of homosexuals and apostates, and dhimmitude for all non-Muslims allowed to live by the global caliphate.) Those preaching or under the spell of such a misguided, positive assessment of Islam would be known as Islamomorons. Perhaps the pejorative sense inherent in this term would serve as a wake-up call to those who listen mindlessly to pseudo-scholarly Islamophiles, while at the same time shaming and silencing the latter from further propaganda. It is the perfect word to describe “useful idiots” so eager to welcome Islam into Western life without realizing they are sowing the seeds of their own society’s destruction.

When words are weaponized and skillfully wielded in the moral battles of a society, they can change the debate landscape in short order — a few decades at most. Witness, for example, a word freshly minted in the early 1980s, when attitudes toward homosexuality were by and large negative. Gay activists coined the term “homophobia” and applied it not only to those holding an “irrational fear” of homosexuality/homosexuals (which is what the term literally meant) but also to those opposed to the practice or lifestyle for moral, medical, sociological or theological reasons. They successfully beguiled a dull-witted society into swallowing uncritically the judgment that anyone opposed to homosexuality as an equally acceptable lifestyle as that of heterosexuality must be intolerant and bigoted, and consequently should be ostracized and shamed into silence until all opposition to the homosexual activist agenda was squelched, and indeed a negative cultural perception was transformed into a positive one.

Muslim activists in the West were quick to learn from this. In the 1990s, leaders from the Muslim Brotherhood in America and sister organizations, all committed to the ascendancy of Islam and its ultimate conquest of the USA in pursuit of a global caliphate, gathered to strategize a long-term plan for the advancement of Islam in American culture. Key to their vision was the makeover of the negative image of Islam in the West. To accomplish this the International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT) coined the term “Islamophobia,” and the 29 Muslim Brotherhood-related organizations began to wield it as a verbal weapon to shame and silence anyone critical of Islamic doctrine and practice.

One of the then members of the IIIT who later renounced his Islamic radicalism and left the organization, Abdur Rahman Muhammad, revealed the intent behind the coining of “Islamophobia”:

“This loathsome term is nothing more than a thought-terminating cliche conceived in the bowels of Muslim think tanks for the purpose of beating down critics…. Islamophobia” was a term designed as a weapon to advance a totalitarian cause by stigmatizing critics and silencing them. This plan was an outgrowth of the Muslim Brotherhood’s deceptive ‘General Strategic Goal for North America.’” [To see that document in Arabic, followed by an English translation, click here.]

OREO COOKIES – INDOCTRINATE KIDS ABOUT TRANSGENDER PRONOUNS

Monday, July 1st, 2019

 

There is a “certain segment” of our population that have lost their minds !  (I’m being “politically correct” in not identifying them but it is pretty obvious which side of the political spectrum they are on)  Thanks to Steve Bishop for sharing.  Nancy  

‘Special’ LGBT-Edition Oreos Indoctrinate Kids About Trans Pronouns

JULY 1, 2019 By Joy Pullmann

Oreo cookies, a division of international foods giant Nabisco, announced yesterday a “special” LGBT edition that includes lectures about how to use transgender pronouns.

“We’re proud to celebrate inclusivity for all gender identities and expressions,” the company wrote in its Facebook post announcing the change. “In partnership with NCTE, we’re giving away special edition Pronoun Packs and encouraging everybody to share their pronouns with Pride today and every day.”

NCTE is the National Council of Teachers of English. While it sounds benign, this massive organization that affects millions of teachers all over the country—and helped write Common Core—has been politically far leftist for decades. For example, the organization came out against allowing trained teachers to defend themselves from active shooters using licensed guns. Its influence on actual English curriculum has been to degrade instruction with politicization and gobbledygook, according to the most rigorous research. Yet still they keep being treated as credible, just like all the other corrupt education institutions in this country.

Thus NCTE is in fact largely a political organization, not a professional organization, at this point. Assisting with these “pronoun packs” only makes publicly obvious what has been true about NCTE for decades. This is not just limited to NCTE, but is true of most of the major organizations involved in K-12 and higher education that exist under the cover of professional associations.

COLORADANS FACE SERIOUS THREATS TO PARENTAL RIGHTS

It is now perfectly clear what Hillary Clinton meant by her famous  quote of “It takes a village to raise a child”   Wonder how she would of reacted if  Chelsea’s school tried to indoctrinate Chelsea towards conservatism ?  I would suspect, all kinds of condemnations would of come down on that school !      Nancy

Coloradans face serious threats to parental rights

By Jeff Hunt   Jeff Hunt is the director of the Centennial Institute        June 10, 2019

The state knows better how to raise your children than you do. That was the clear message sent by Colorado legislators during this contentious legislative session.

Bill after bill, many of which were written by special interest groups like Planned Parenthood and One Colorado, sought to strip rights and responsibilities from parents and hand them to the state.

Take for instance one of the most contentious bills on comprehensive sex education. Since 2013, the state of Colorado has defined comprehensive sex education and forced any district teaching sex education to do so in line with Colorado’s newfound progressive agenda. This legislative session, they further expanded the definition of comprehensive sex education to embrace LGBTQ perspectives while attempting to specifically ban religious perspectives. You read this correctly, the legislature sought to solidify in statute the specific banning of religious perspectives when it comes to teaching human sexuality. Teachings like chastity before marriage, monogamy, and the importance of a both a mother and father, were sidelined because of their religious foundations.

The 2019 comprehensive sex education bill, written by Planned Parenthood, was a violation of religious freedom and parental rights.

Colorado state Rep. Mark Baisley asked the right question during a packed committee meeting, “Who defines healthy sexual relationships?” This is a parent’s role, not Planned Parenthood’s.

Rather than allowing parents to share values with their children regarding healthy sexual relationships, the state has forcefully assumed this responsibility.

EQUALITY ACT – WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

Friday, June 21st, 2019
  At the bottom of the email is the contact information for our senators  in the U.S. Senate who will be voting on this bill.  Make your opinions regarding this bill  known to our senators !   Nancy

“The Equality Act” sounds like a great bill. Who would be against equality? But, it’s not really about equality.

The Equality Act is really about using the full weight of the federal government to impose the ever-evolving sexual revolution on the American people, under threat of punishment or loss of federal funds.

Rather than allow a national debate on the issues of human sexuality and gender, the Act shuts down the debate and, in essence, labels as bigots those who will not bow the knee to the sexual revolution.

As Andrew Walker writes, “For progressives, the Equality Act is the rallying cry that would forever cement the legitimacy of sexual-revolution ethics into federal law.”

So What is the Equality Act?

The Equality Act— to be introduced by House Democrats in Congress—adds “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” to the list of protected classes under the 1964 Civil Rights Act.  This means that almost no area of American public life—including education, employment, public accommodation, housing, medical care, non-profits, and federal funding for example—will be left untouched.

Obviously, invidious discrimination is wrong, but that is not what the Equality Act is addressing. Americans are not being denied employment, housing, or public accommodations because of their sexual orientation or gender identity.

Rather, these types of laws have been used throughout the country to punish those that believe that marriage is only between one man and one woman, and believe that there are only two genders, male and female, both rooted in biology.

Some Problems with the Equality Act:

1. It threatens the fundamental freedoms of speech and religion

    • It could force faith-based charities, non-profits, and schools to operate contrary to their religious beliefs concerning human sexuality, or risk punishment or loss of federal funding.
    • Creative professionals— especially in the wedding industry— could be compelled to communicate messages about marriage that violate their conscience or be forced out of the wedding industry altogether.
    • In the language of the bill, it overrides the religious protections found in the Religious Freedom Restoration Act. This means that when alleged cases of discrimination involve religious beliefs, religious freedom loses.
    • It would force faith-based foster care and adoption agencies to shut down or change their policy of only placing children with a married husband and wife.

Transgender Illegal Aliens Get Special Treatment, Hormone Therapy Under Policy Issued by Trump’s Border Czar

JUNE 18, 2019

Immigration centers are dangerously overcrowded yet the federal agency slammed with an onslaught of migrants provides a separate unit for transgender illegal immigrants as well as costly hormone therapy and a number of other perks. Thanks to an Obama policy continued by the Trump administration, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) gives transgender illegal aliens special treatment, including their own detention center in New Mexico that offers hair and makeup classes, a recreation area, gym, television rooms, a lab and pharmacy. There are also meeting areas for trans detainees to consult with free legal services provided by advocacy groups. American taxpayers furnish the hormone therapy, which “is not cheap,”according to an ICE director quoted in a recent news report about the New Mexico transgender facility, which opened in 2017.

The reality is that ICE has long offered transgender illegal immigrants special services under an Obama-era policy that the Trump administration can easily reverse but has chosen not to. ICE officials and frontline personnel are outraged that the Trump administration continues the policies, which some in the agency refer to as dangerous, expensive and foolish. Rank and file are at their wits end, according to ICE officials interviewed by Judicial Watch this week. “Two and a half years of the Trump administration and we still have Obama detention standards,” said Chris Crane, president of the National ICE Council, which represents 7,600 officers, agents and employees throughout the U.S. “This is not a new policy for ICE. It came out under the performance-based detention standards in 2011 and was updated in 2013 and 2016.” Crane said the National ICE Council addressed the agency’s detrimental detention issues with Trump’s first Homeland Security Secretary, John Kelly, who ordered changes that never materialized.

GAY PRIDE EVENT – DURHAM CHARTER SCHOOL – FEATURES DRAG QUEEN STORY HOUR

Friday, May 10th, 2019

 

This information is especially upsetting  to me as two of my grandsons attend this charter school in Durham, North Carolina.   I am posting this article on our website under Culture Rot !!!  Please share with your email lists.   Nancy

DURHAM CHARTER SCHOOL TO HOLD GAY PRIDE EVENT FEATURING DRAG QUEEN STORY HOUR
by A.P. Dillion    May 6, 2019
The Central Park School for Children sent an email to staff this week announcing their first “Pride & Liberation Event” to be held on May 13th. The school will hold LGBTQ themed “mini-lessons” and activities in all K-8 classes during the week prior to the event.

Staff was given these reasons for children as young as 5 being exposed to sexually charged LGBTQ materials for a week straight in the classroom:

1.) Increased visibility for queer members of the community, with a focus on centering queer People of Color. 
2.) Education on race, gender, queer history, and intersectionality, as well as advocacy, contributing to spaces of inclusiveness and liberation, and upstanding/anti-bullying. 
3.) Challenging common misconceptions and the increasing instances of exclusionary, demeaning, and threatening language and actions amongst students, disproportionately affecting students of Color, LGBTQ students, and female students.

North Carolina’s sexual education instruction does not begin until 7th grade.

A TALE OF TWO MICHIGANS

Thursday, April 25th, 2019

 

Ever wonder why the Far Left Marxists continually attack religion, marriage and traditional values ?  These traditional values and institutions   are the glue that keeps communities healthy and prosperous.  Marxists  do not want healthy and happy communities.  They want desperate and unhappy people who will be drawn to their siren call of equality for all.     This is an interesting article that  draws a comparison between the prosperous Grand Rapids area of Michigan and the struggling Detroit and Flint, Michigan areas.   Nancy  

THE WASHINGTON EXAMINER

A tale of two Michigans

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Grand Rapids and Detroit are at opposite ends of Michigan. While both cities and their broader environs have been tossed by the rises and falls of the automotive industry, the two ends of the state have generally moved in opposite directions. In the west, Grand Rapids and nearby Holland have thrived. In the east, Detroit and Flint have struggled. At the same time, the rural counties in central Michigan have collapsed, economically and socially.

Why the divergent paths?

If you’ve been to Rust Belt towns — maybe you covered Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign — you’ll be shocked as you drive around Holland and Grand Rapids. The downtowns are bustling. On the outskirts, you’ll find a small manufacturer around every turn. Grand Rapids’ unemployment has been below 4 percent for most of the past year, and it has been below 5 percent for most of the past 5 years. Holland hasn’t seen unemployment above 5 percent since mid-2014.

It’s not that they haven’t had their downturns. Western Michigan has a long reputation as a supplier for the automakers near Detroit. When GM bleeds, the pain is felt at both ends of I-96. But some places bounce back from economic body blows better than other places.

Imagine you’re a business owner in 1983 or 2009. You want to set up a business, and Michigan appeals to you for one reason or another. Statewide unemployment is around 15 percent. Economics would tell you that’s a good thing from the employer’s perspective: A greater supply of available labor means lower wages.

Obviously, employers have chosen Western Michigan over, say, Detroit or Mecosta County. Why?
