Secular Democrats of America Demand Secularism in the White House

“Its political ideology is anti-democratic and anti-scientific. It provides constant cover for white supremacy.”

The secular Democrats of America prepared a report specifically for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. It was presented by representatives Jamie Raskin and Jared Huffman. It is essentially their demand and plan to make American government completely and totally secular humanist.

You can find the entire report right here.

Below are specific quotes from the report.

The rise of white Christian nationalism is a national security threat. We recommend you: encourage the Department of Homeland Security and Department of Justice to dedicate resources to the deradicalization programs at hate groups, including, but not limited to, white nationalists; increase monitoring of such groups, including the online environment and take action to address increased hate crimes towards minority faith communities; and shift rhetoric to label violent white nationalist extremist as terrorist

We believe that this is a moment not only to enact policies to advance constitutional secularism but position the democratic party to take back the mantle of religious freedom and pluralism from the republican party.

We urge you not to underestimate the institutional strength of what we refer to (interchangeably) in this document as the Christian nationalist movement or the religious right. This movement is extraordinarily well funded and well organized in the manifestation of its extreme Insectarium agenda is a constant display under the Trump-Pence administration. Its political ideology is anti-democratic and anti-scientific. It provides constant cover for white supremacy.

Its agenda rests on a pinched interpretation of biblical principles preached by Christian nationalist leader ship and thought leaders. With their political agenda sanctioned by a higher power, their base of support is disciplined, motivated, and deeply committed to a vision that does not align with our basic constitutional values and democratic principles.

We ask that you counter this movement narrative by actively working to dismantle its grip on our government and counter it’s in accurate and revisionist messaging around our nation’s founding.

Policy decisions that should be guided by science and evidence, on matters ranging from climate change to comprehensive sex education to federal funding for stem cell research, I’ve been scooter blocked entirely by powerful religious interest groups and further undermined at every turn by the Trump administration.

The first three areas where we believe President Trump has violated basic constitutional principles and elevated religious privilege over the Bill of Rights and the common good. The fourth area of focus is protecting the rights and dignity of nontheists.

According to Gallup the most mistrusted religious minorities in the United States are atheists and Muslims.

Utilize every mechanism at the administrations disposal to ensure that the Department of Education does not funnel taxpayer dollars to private schools.

Reverse all executive orders, rules, memoranda, and other actions that exempt faith based organizations contracting with the federal government from non-discrimination requirements that apply to secular organizations.

We are at your administration to disincentive eyes state funding for programs that are not evidence-based in which can cause harm by spreading misinformation, such as crisis pregnancy centers and abstinence only education programs.

Work with Congress to incentivize states to increase their vaccination rates by repealing all non-medical exemptions to mandatory vaccination for children in schools and day care centers.

Fully and robustly fund comprehensive, medically accurate sex education.

Donald Trump has empowered the religious right in ways no other administration has before, making significant advances in enacting their Christian nationalist agenda.

Oppose religious displays on government property and recognize this issue’s importance as a matter of basic constitutional respect.

Issue guidance that clarifies the duty and obligation of government officials to separate their personal religious beliefs from their work.

Crackdown on nonprofits operating as businesses, including mega churches.

Update the current guidelines to clarify the constitutional boundaries of religious expression in public schools.

Disentangle the conflation of faith and patriotism. In public statements, avoid phrases like “God and country.”

With the rise of Christian nationalism, there is an urgent need to reframe public discourse surrounding patriotism.

When listing faiths in public remarks or talking about religious pluralism, always include non-religious people.

The current motto, “In God We trust,” is a relic of McCarthyism in the anti-atheist hysteria of the 1950s, and it has been invoked by Christian nationalists to reinforce their historically revisionist narrative of our nations founding.

We urge you to avoid invoking the phrase “Judeo-Christian values,” as it has been Weaponized by the religious right to advancing agenda that has the veneer of inclusivity but actually undermines religious freedom and tolerance and does not represent tens of millions of Americans implicitly excluded from its formulation.

Why Mainline Republicans Should NOT Be Trusted in Latest Threats

When conservatives and populists finally got someone who they believed in, the mainliners were the first people to jump ship.

Published

We’ve all been told for years and years that we have to support the mainline candidates but when conservatives and populists finally got someone who they believed in, the mainliners were the first people to jump ship. And they still continue to perpetuate their angst ridden accusations. From this no-name guy who I can’t even remember who is threatening to pull people out of the party to Liz Cheney to your average mainline Republican, Chris Widener, the founder of PolitiCrossing take them apart piece by piece in his latest video.

The 90-year Shame of the New York Times

Despite its constant lies, propaganda, and censorship, the New York Times is regarded by many as the ‘newspaper of record,’ offering ‘all the news that’s fit to print’

Published

on

The New York Times deliberately buried the story known as the Terror-Famine, in 1932 and 1933, which astoundingly killed 3.9 to 7.0 million Ukrainians, at least one out of every eight people, perhaps one out of every four people.

The editors at the Times were well aware that the famine was orchestrated by Joseph Stalin who forbade outside food and aid shipments, confiscated household food items, and restricted the mobility of Ukrainian citizens.

What made Stalin do this to a region known as “the world’s breadbasket”? He sought to punish independence-minded Ukrainians, quash anyone who represented a threat to his totalitarian government, and vanquish Ukraine’s small farms in favor of Soviet state-run collectives. Stalin lost no sleep over the legions of emaciated bodies, near death, scratching for any morsel of food they could find.

Maniacal and Mendacious

Why did The New York Times bury this heart-wrenching, world-shaking story? Then, as now, their leftist bent was so intense and so all-encompassing that they couldn’t help themselves. The blunt truth is that they do not care who is hurt as long as socialist/Marxist/communist ideology prevails on earth.

In another 10 years, it will be at least 100 years since the Times and other heavily left-leaning organizations, which today comprise the highly biased ‘mainstream media,’ have been dominant.

In 2121, one hundred years from now, is it realistic to believe that the facade which the mainstream media has foisted on Americans and on free people around the globe will not continue to dominate?

Will their maniacal ideology, somehow, finally be exposed by some new form of information dissemination or some fundamental shift in media coverage?

Sheeple at the Trough

Just how biased and detrimental their slanted news coverage has been to humanity, globally, is difficult to fathom. For decades on end, when you prop up socialist, Marxist, or communist regimes, are you helping anyone?

The mainstream media has held a news and information monopoly for so long, so skillfully, that the facade is not remotely understood by those in its spell, and bitterly denounced by those who see the mainstream press for what it really is. In the long run, truth generally prevails.

Even today, after five years of attempting to prove it, not a shred of evidence indicates that Donald Trump, his administration, or his campaign colluded with Russia.

Still, you have Adam Schiff, Eric Swalwell, and all the other dolts in Congress who will readily appear on TV and spew lies. They play the ‘talking head’ game with sympathetic hosts and continue the guise, holding sway over those who don’t know how to find out the truth.

A Stranglehold for the Ages

The stranglehold that the Left and the mainstream media has on humanity leads to some intriguing philosophical questions. Even before the mass media came into being, has there always been some entity that enforced its will upon the unwitting masses?

Throughout history, dictators and other rulers imposed their version of the truth on the unwitting masses. Even in societies where news and information was somewhat freely exchanged, has there always been a faction that sought to slant reality and the will of others? It seems likely.

In the 21st century, roughly half of the U.S. and roughly half of the globe are still subject to Leftist manipulation. Despite all the information sources that exist today, why does so much of the world still fall for obviously manufactured and manipulated news?

How can people keep tuning in to CNN or MSNBC, or for that matter the nightly news on ABC, NBC, or CBS? How many times does CBS have to be caught red-handed doctoring the news, slanting stories on 60 Minutes, and laying traps for people like Governor Ron DeSantis, only to be exposed?

And then, within a matter of days, having learned nothing, CBS reverts right back to more of their insidious ways of presenting information.

Living with Perpetual Lies

How often can The New York Times offer a story the latter proves to be completely untrue, and its editors knew was untrue at the time, and yet its readership is unfazed?

How can the Times continue to be regarded by many as the ‘newspaper of record,’ offering ‘all the news that’s fit to print’? What tidal wave of human understanding, once and for all, needs to occur before we universally recognize highly biased reporting sources for what they are?

In the U.K., news publications openly advocate a position, left or right, and don’t play pretend. Consumers understand the bias that each media outlet or newspaper maintains, can read articles, and judge them accordingly.

In the U.S., the mainstream press continues to push lie that they offer an objective, balanced view of what’s happening in the world. How can they continue to do this? Sadly, enough fools buy what they say… lock, stock, and barrel.
