CONFORM ! – WE HAVE WAYS TO MAKE YOU

Saturday, May 13th, 2017

 

It is appalling  that these institutions are letting themselves be intimidated by the Human Rights Campaign which is peddling  the  political agenda of the LGBTQ community.   Nancy   
THE WEEKLY STANDARD

We Have Ways to Make You Conform

The Human Rights Campaign’s sham rankings.

The grievance-industry racket is as old as the culture war itself. But rarely has it been practiced as transparently as it was this past week by the Human Rights Campaign.

You may recall the Human Rights Campaign from its two-decade drive to legalize same-sex marriage, which HRC cleverly packaged as an apolitical, universal “human right.” Having won their victory through the majesty of Anthony Kennedy’s pen, however, the folks at HRC decided not to press on for same-sex marriage in, say, Saudi Arabia and China, but rather to throw themselves fully into shakedown mode here at home, where they make busy with corporate outreach (companies pay them to achieve bronze, silver, gold, or platinum “partnerships”) and fundraising (you can get a specialty HRC Visa card to automate donations) and bullying the occasional doctor or scientist who will not parrot the current orthodoxy on human sexuality.

Last fall, for instance, Lawrence Mayer and Paul McHugh published a report on sexuality and gender in the New Atlantis, a journal on technology and society. Mayer is an epidemiologist trained in psychiatry who is a resident scholar at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. Paul McHugh is a professor of psychiatry at Hopkins. Their report, a review of the scientific literature on the nature of sexual orientation, sexuality, and gender identity, was a detailed yet accessible document written for a general audience. (We covered it in these pages at the time, “Studying the Unstudiable,” September 12, 2016.)

Right from the start, the Human Rights Campaign was unhappy with the report. The HRC began warning Johns Hopkins that it would take action against the institution if it did not take significant steps to distance the medical school from McHugh and Mayer’s report. The big threat: If Hopkins didn’t punish Mayer and McHugh, the school’s intransigence would hurt its rankings in HRC’s next Healthcare Equality Index (HEI).

THE NEW DEM CIVIL WAR: RACE VS CLASS

RACE VS CLASS: THE NEW DEM CIVIL WAR

Fight white men or Wall Street?

MAY 2, 2017

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is a New York writer focusing on radical Islam.

EXCERPT FROM THIS ARTICLE: 

The old left insists that social differences will fade away under Socialism. The intersectional left believes that without social deconstruction, Socialism will just mean white supremacy and hetero-cis power.

The old left believes that the true enemies are the billionaires and that working class white men must be enlisted to fight them. The intersectional left will take money from billionaires to fight working class white men who are the real enemy.  That is the Bernie and Obama split in a nutshell.  Obama will take money from Wall Street to fight white men. Bernie wants white men to fight Wall Street.   Both factions of the left are utterly deranged. Their ideologies are built on hatred and can only cause misery. And they are now fighting each other for control of the left, the Dems and the country.

 

The Democrats have ended their unity tour more divided than ever. Unlike Republican quarrels, their war is mostly ignored by the media. And yet it will define what the left and its plan to take over the country will look like.

When Hillary lost, she didn’t just lose the White House. She also lost the DNC. Her loyalists, already discredited for their brazen tampering to disenfranchise Sanders supporters, had to make way for Obama’s people. The Clinton legacy is over. The Dems belong to Obama now.

Or do they?

When Obama inherited the DNC from the Clintons, he also inherited their bitter enemy.

CULTURAL MARXISTS AT WAR WITH AMERICA

Tuesday, April 25th, 2017

 

Bigot, racist, islamophobe, xenophobe, not who we are as a nation, global citizen, safe spaces, civil society, social justice, inhumane, diversity – These are just some of the words we hear every day from the Cultural Marxists whose goal is to change our way of thinking about any issue that they want to control.
If we understand what their goals are, then we have a much better chance of being able to fight their insidious ideology.   Nancy  

Liberalism is not really freedom; it thrives on divisiveness, separation, and inequality.

Cultural Marxism and Euphemisms

By Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh —— Bio and Archives April 24, 2017

Cultural Marxist academics, their sycophant students, and the main stream media are at war with America—a war of violent Marxist ideology and a war of cleverly chosen words and euphemisms that appear time and time again in many college courses, high school classes, in propaganda literature, newspapers, conferences, and in the manufactured news. Cultural Marxists are regular guests on all the alphabet soup networks masquerading as real news, spewing their hatred, their disdain and disrespect for our President, and their calls to renewed violence in the streets through their masked Black Shirts.

As David Horrowitz said, “Worse yet, this is the dominant culture in our universities, in our media, in our judiciary, in government, in unions, and in the shadow political universe of non-profits, with billions of tax-free dollars at their disposal.”

Language is a powerful tool of discourse, mass political indoctrination and agitation. Marxist Democrats are quite adept at using inflammatory language and deceptive euphemisms to suit their nefarious political ends.

CALIFORNIA’S ABORTION INDUSTRY

Thursday, March 30th, 2017

 

CALIFORNIA’S MORAL ATROCITY
The state’s attorney general is going after, not people who confessed on camera to murders, but the investigative reporters who uncovered the crimes.
 In a parade of horrors exposed by the Center for Medical Progress, one episode stands out.
 In the seventh video released by undercover journalists David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt, former
StemExpress technician Holly O’Donnell describes an experience at Planned Parenthood Mar Monte’s Alameda Clinic in San Jose, Calif.:
 “I want you to see something kinda cool. This is kinda neat,” [says O’Donnell’s coworker]. So I’m over here, and . . . the moment I see it, I’m just flabbergasted. This is the most gestated fetus and the closest thing to a baby I’ve seen. And she is, like, “Okay, I want to show you something.” So she has one of her instruments, and she just taps the heart, and it starts beating. And I’m sitting here, and I’m looking at this fetus, and its heart is beating, and I don’t know what to think. O’Donnell is then told to “harvest” the child’s brain: “[She] gave me the scissors and told me that I had to cut down the middle of the face.” O’Donnell did as asked.
 
It’s not often that someone confesses to murder on camera, but that is what O’Donnell did, assuming her account was accurate. The California Penal Code defines murder as the “unlawful killing of a human being, or a fetus, with malice aforethought.” Not only did Planned Parenthood refuse to render care to a born-alive infant, as required by California law; it acted affirmatively to cause the child’s death.

PLANNED PARENTHOOD DONATED TO AG WHO CHARGED ACTIVISTS

Thursday, March 30th, 2017

 

THE DAILY WIRE

AG Who Charged Activists For Exposing Planned Parenthood Received Thousands In Donations From Planned Parenthood

By James Barrett      March 29, 2017
California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, who recently charged two pro-life activists on 15 felony counts for their work exposing Planned Parenthood’s sale of aborted baby body parts, received thousands in donations from the abortion provider, according to the numbers provided by Open Secrets.

 On Tuesday, Becerra charged David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt of the Center for Medical Progress on 15 felony counts for the role they played in an undercover investigation of Planned Parenthood’s “fetal tissue” trade practices. In 2015, CMP began to release videos of the footage they obtained in their undercover operation, some of which featured Planned Parenthood officials and former employees discussing the taxpayer-funded organization’s disturbing and potentially illegal practices regarding the selling of the body parts of aborted babies. Though the state of Texas pursued charges against the activists, the charges were eventually dismissed.

Now, Becerra has raised the stakes, throwing 15 felony counts at the pro-life journalists, claiming they violated California law by recording “private” conversations without the consent of both parties (more on that below).  But as it turns out, Becerra has a conflict of interest. Over the years, he has received a total of $5,535 dollars in campaign contributions from the organization at the center of the case.

Life News provides the breakdown: “$1,000 in 2014$2,000 in 2012$500 in 2004$1,000 in 2002, and $1,035 in 1998.”

NC SCHOOL FIGHTS TO KEEP PRO-TRANSGENDER MESSAGE IN FIRST-GRADE CURRICULUM

Tuesday, March 28th, 2017

 

NC School District Fights to Keep Pro-Transgender Message in First-Grade Curriculum

by DR. SUSAN BERRY27 Mar 2017
 

Public pressure has forced far-left officials at the Charlotte-Mecklenburg school district (CMS) to withdraw a pro-transgender book for first-grade kids — but the officials are now mandating a book with a disguised version of the same pro-transgender message.

A teacher raised concerns about the transgender-validating book, Jacob’s New Dress, at a school board meeting. The book celebrates a young boy who wears dresses to school, and it stigmatizes boys who urge their peers to wear boys’ clothes. After lawmakers in Raleigh heard the concerns, the book was removed from the “anti-bullying” curriculum — but it was replaced with Red: A Crayon’s Story, which focuses on a red crayon that believes itself to be blue, reports WFXB.

Professor Mike Adams, PhD, UNC Wilmington, was the guest speaker at ICON Lectures on Tuesday, March 7, 2017.  The subject of his talk was the detrimental roles of Cultural Marxism campus-wide in the erosion of conservative values and the suppression of Constitutional rights, particularly concerning free speech.  Some of the issues he discussed included  campus safe spaces and hot  spots, trigger warnings, same-sex marriage, reverse discrimination and political correctness. 
Dr. Adams is Professor of Sociology and Criminology at UNC Wilmington and was awarded Professor of the Year for both 1998 and 2000.  His promotion was initially denied based on the university’s denouncement of his politically “incorrect” writings.  The US Court of Appeals found he had been illegally retaliated against, and ordered restitution. 
A video of Dr. Adam’s talk will be posted on the ICON website in about a week for those of you who were unable to attend the lecture or who live outside our immediate area.    www.iconlectureseries.com

MARYLAND LIBRARY CANCELS LESBIAN POLE DANCER’S SEX-ED CLASSES FOR TEENS

Saturday, March 11th, 2017

 

An example of “culture rot” that is being pushed in our country.  Thankfully, the parents and citizens pushed back !   Nancy

Maryland library cancels lesbian pole dancer’s sex-ed classes for teens

Sex educator Bianca Palmisano
Fri Mar 10, 2017

LEONARDTOWN, Maryland, March 10, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — Citizens voiced their concerns to St. Mary’s County commissioners on Tuesday night regarding a sex-ed class for minors without parental consent to be taught by a lesbian prostitution advocate in publicly-funded libraries.

The public forum lasted more than three hours, with men and women imploring civic leaders to do all they can to “restore good, wholesome, moral family values again.”

The classes for children ages 12-17 without parents present were canceled.

Lexington Park Library director Michael Blackwell apologized to attendees for making the “mistake” of scheduling the sex-ed class and said he hopes residents will forgive him. Rev. Larry Crabtree of Seek and Ye Shall Find Bible Church vouched for Blackwell’s sincerity.

“It truly was something to behold,” Georgia Kijesky, the homeschooling mother who rallied concerned citizens to call their local libraries, told LifeSiteNews. “Witnessing so many coming together and hearing the sincerity in their pleas made me so very, very proud to be a St. Mary’s County resident.”

Deacon Eamon Ripple of St. John Francis Regis parish in Hollywood, Maryland, gave an impassioned plea to “restore sex as a life-giving sacrament of matrimony instead of reducing it down to a recreational activity bringing harm to our children.”

St. John Francis Regis youth minister Rich Olon exposed lesbian instructor Bianca Palmisano’s bias toward “homosexual education” and transgenderism.

Palmisano was a keynote speaker at the 2013 “Slutwalk.” Olon pointed out that during her speech Palmisano promoted a sex toy shop where she said “polyamorous leather dykes could hang out with kinky bisexuals and couples and compare notes with lifelong swingers, and still welcome those just beginning to explore their sexuality.”

Palmisano added in her “Slutwalk” keynote address, “We host workshops twice a month, bringing in speakers from across the country to share their expertise on everything from blowjobs to threesomes to rough sex.”

Palmisano supporters also spoke at the public forum, calling objections to the sex-ed classes “censorship” and parents “homophobic.” They claimed the public favored the classes and chided county commissioners for caving to pressure.

“Much of the opposition stems from the feeling that an agenda was being pushed in the choice of such a radical liberal extremist to teach, or ‘groom,’ our children on sex,” Olon explained in a letter to the editor of a local paper. “She describes herself on her website as a ‘sex educator, vivacious queer, feminist … ‘ She provides seminars on bondage, sadism and masochism. She is an LGBT activist, a promoter of the legalization of prostitution, and a self-described ‘pole dancer.'”

“Do we really want someone who wears the title ‘Slut’ like a badge of honor teaching children about sex?” asked Olon, who also heads up religious education for the parish. “Should someone who believes that violence has a place in sex be charged with educating our children on sex?”
