Tolerate Democrat Friends, or Sever Ties With Them?

Multi-millions of Democrats are gleefully willing to overturn our most fundamental democratic institutions

Published

on

For six months, I’ve been contemplating whether or not to sever ties with liberal friends, some of whom I have known for decades. Why?

By some polls more than 70% of Republicans and 30% of Democrats believe that election fraud gave Joe Biden the presidency. Many Democrats, and liberal friends of mine, ensconced in the mainstream media bubble that has perpetrated hoax after hoax for four years, still deny that any such schemes have occurred.

Stolen Elections Hurt Everyone

I have relatives who disagreed with my vote, and apparently they are fine with having elections stolen, as long as their candidates win. Despairingly, I’ve implored them to understand the enormous ramifications of stolen elections.

While many on the right assert that they will never regard the 2020 election as anything but stolen, a chilling reality sets in… Multi-millions of Democrats were gleefully willing to steal this election, to overturn our most fundamental democratic institutions, and to seize control of the country.

The schemes were varied, but all shared one common denominator: to usurp Democracy.

Historically Unprecedented Fraud

Considering the minimizing of ID requirements, ballot-box stuffing, not delivering ballots, backdating ballots, ballot harvesting, voting twice, voting in place of the deceased, forging signatures, doctoring ballots, re-running ballots through counting machines, restricting access of poll watchers, coaching voters at the voting booth, feigning water main breaks to clear out voting precincts and manipulate counting machines, and using software susceptible to vote-switching (as employed in dozens of states), the effort was widespread.

Also, in delivering truckloads of computer-generated ballots, “finding” stacks of ballots late, paying for votes, offering raffles prizes for voting, destroying opposition ballots, and so many other illegal and un-democratic schemes, the quest was the same:

To rob us of our 233-year heritage; to prevent the rightful candidate from assuming office, to steal other elections at the national, state, and local level; and to vanquish our fundamental right to vote in free and fair elections.

As such, more than six months after November 3rd, roughly one half of the population – and perhaps one-half of all the people we know, are either complicit or somehow unaware.

Unity, How So?

As you begin to realize that those who oppose you politically are willing to do anything to ensure that their candidates are elected, at any cost, it is difficult to fathom.

They look askance at anyone who doesn’t vote the way they vote. Indeed, recent studies have shown that people who vote Right are more tolerant than those who vote Left.

These developments do not make for a unified nation, nor are they useful in going forward, and seeking to restore some sense of equanimity or even semi-cordial relations. The division is becoming so wide and so deep, I have concern for the future of the United States.

Re-Programming on the Menu

Each day, a Robert Reich, an AOC, a pundit, a reporter, or some other politician suggests assembling lists of Trump voters (all 75+ million?) for future re-education camps, or ‘reconciliation’ programs. This is the language that I would expect from a Maoist.

Voters on the Right are called every conceivable name in the book, for example, ‘All Trump voters are Nazis,’ and this label is not issued as hyperbole.

Yet, Trump’s record on minority employment, historically black colleges, opportunity zones, prison reform, the apprentice program, school choice, the (medical) right to try, Veterans Administration reform, troop withdrawal, Middle East peace, Jews and the state of Israel, Hispanics across the country, and so much more, flies in the face of viewing Trump voters as ‘deplorables.’ Still we are consistently and relentlessly regarded as such.

The Left’s history of dealing with those who do not toe their line is not pretty. And today’s Left is eager to adopt the horrendous practices of their forebears. Biden and his puppet masters want us to be wary at all times.

What about the children we have in grade school, middle school, high school, and college? Will they have to knuckle under? Elementary schools, on up, are now breeding grounds for Leftist indoctrination.

Should we be silent at work, hiding our political views? Will we be relieved of our jobs? Do we get ‘canceled?’ Will our incomes suffer? Will our businesses be flagged? Should we be wary of our neighbors?

Joe Biden’s America is turning into a dreadful place.

Why are Red State Governors Using Democrat Public Relations Agencies?

Published

on

Conservatives are always railing against using products and services from left-wing activists, so why are some who clearly have the option of choosing otherwise not doing so? One of the most glaring areas where this is taking place is in red state governments. They hire left-wing PR and advertising agencies, giving them millions of taxpayer dollars which enables the agencies to continue attacking conservatives, helping leftist causes and possibly even sabotaging the conservative governors they are supposed to represent. 

 

A classic example of one of these agencies is New York-based MMGY NJF, one of the largest PR companies for tourism offices in the country. It was founded by Democrat Nancy Friedman. Her Twitter feed is full of progressive posts, including retweeting Rachel Maddow and David Hogg. She gave money to Kamala Harris and the DNC in 2020.

MMGY NJF Vice President Danny Guerrero’s Twitter account is also full of hate. He retweeted Joy Behar urging Beto O’Rourke to run against Ted Cruz, and another person gloating that the Military Band played “Hit the Road Jack” outside the White House on President Trump’s last day. He also retweeted Robert Reich wanting to impeach Trump 10 days before the inauguration. MMGY gave Guerrero a big award this month. 

 

So who uses MMGY besides typical woke areas of the country like West Hollywood? Texas and South Dakota, both states with conservative Republican governors. South Dakota and Travel Texas are proudly listed as two of their clients. Their contract with South Dakota is valued at over $20.7 million. Visit Rapid City also uses the agency. 

 

MMGY recently bragged that Travel Texas and Visit Florida, Florida’s tourism office, are funding their woke study examining the “intersectionality” of “LatinX” tourism. It’s entitled “Latinx U.S. Travelers: Observations and Insights on Themes of Diaspora and Intersectionality.” Intersectionality is a Marxist term that means looking at political issues in terms of identity, viewing everyone as a white male, a queer transgender, etc., and how privilege and discrimination apply. LatinX is a term made up by woke white leftists to refer to Hispanics, which MMGY defines as a “gender-neutral” term. One Hispanic was so offended he wrote an article for USA Today denouncing the made-up word. 

 

Profits from the study’s sale will be donated to Travel Unity. Travel Unity puts on events featuring woke speakers such as Brandan Robertson, a “trusted voice on progressive faith and politics.” Speaker Adrienne Lee worked for a global social justice organization and has a love for “intersectional environmentalism.” Sara Emmert managed communications and public relations for the New York State Legislature Democratic caucus members and for Democratic Governor Andrew Cuomo. And speaker Alanah Keddell-Tuckey is a public outreach specialist for New York’s DEC’s Office of Environmental Justice. The list is devoid of conservative speakers but full of SJWs.

 

After the announcement, Visit Florida was scrubbed off of MMGY’s website as a sponsor. Maybe they wised up? Before MMGY, Texas used Edelman, the firm of Steve Schmidt of Lincoln Project infamy.

 

Democrats are great about hiring each other and canceling Republicans out of jobs. So why are these conservative governors allowing MMGY to stay on as a client? There are plenty of conservative PR agencies who would love the work, and may desperately need it due to the cancel culture.

 

MMGY is all about dividing people by race and other categories. It is not inclusive, it is perpetuating divisive stereotypes. Why are tax dollars in red states going to such an openly progressive agency? 

 

Some levels of government are doing the right thing and pushing back. North Carolina’s Surry County Commissioners recently announced that the county is banning Coke machines after Coke issued a statement denouncing Georgia’s new voting integrity laws. 

 

There is probably something going on behind closed doors that the American public doesn’t know about. There are a few people in those three states with power who stand to gain from contracts with MMGY. They’ve become buddies with the top brass at MMGY, and likely reap benefits, tangible or intangible, from the partnership. These types of sleazy people frequently use blackmail to force politicians to do what they want. 

 

When conservatives rail against RINOs, this is the epitome of the type of behavior they are ranting about. Many RINOs at the top echelons in government care more about their personal pockets than principles. Sadly, the American public rarely discovers these backdoor secrets, because those kinds of people are masters at covering their tracks. It’s allowed to remain a frustrating mystery.

 

It sounds like Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis may have finally put the lid on MMGY. Now it’s time for Texas Gov. Greg Abbott and South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem to do the same. If they don’t, MMGY will be like a ball and chain following them around if they run for higher office. It may seem like a very small move to dump the agency. But every little bit counts pushing back against the woke progressives’ indoctrination, and since they control so many areas of society, fighting piecemeal may be our only option.

Education

Why are Schools Failing Our Children?

Published

on

There is a feeling in this country that we are more divided, more violent, less informed and willing to just go along to get along. Why is that? Why are people willing to take to the streets and burn and loot? How can even a small vocal minority support communist regimes that have murdered hundreds of thousands thru out history? Why do those popular “man on the street” interviews show so many citizen’s ignorant of even basic civic knowledge? Possibly a closer look needs to be taken at how the youngest of Americans are taught and where their views are shaped.

In America we have compulsory but not mandatory Kindergarten thru 12th grade. Like almost all government type programs the users pay nothing but the taxpayers pay dearly. The costs for education has outpaced inflation for quite a few years.  Despite what some say more money does not equal better students. Using almost any matrix American students are falling behind their counterparts in the rest of the western world. In some blue state’s average property taxes can equal almost half of the federal income tax paid.

There was a time when schools concentrated upon the three “R’s”, Reading, writing and arithmetic. The goal of school was to prepare students for the real world. Today we have books banned in school so it doesn’t offend or inform students about the real world. In quite a few school cursive writing is no longer taught since it is difficult and beside we have Bill Gates and Microsoft helping us to write and spell. Math or arithmetic has been branded “racist” because laws of math are absolute and to teach students that they might be wrong just might damage their self-esteem. Advanced placement classes are being defunded across the nation to make room for more special education placements. Because some doing better than others could hurt some students and parents feelings.

If the basic three “R’s” are no longer being taught what is happening in our schools? Reading classics like “Huckleberry Finn” has now been replaced by “Heather has two mommies”. Writing assignments might consist of a short essay on your heroes. But make sure it’s a woke hero and not anyone like Jesus or Trump. Arithmetic in use for at least since the pyramids were built is now being performed by the “Common Core” method instead of the traditional time honored way.  Which is probably why cashiers these day can’t figure out change without the machine. Don’t forget the latest fad “Critical Race Theory”, where if you are not the correct shade of brown you don’t even deserve your change back.

Education and schooling has always been about building a base for a better future and short on actual practical knowledge. There is some truth to the saying those that can do and those that can’t teach. So what are our most vulnerable being taught in public schools these days? To be an activist, a social justice warrior, to despise the very foundations that allow them the freedom they enjoy today? It has either accelerated lately or maybe just become more open as a result of remote learning. Many parents forced to stay home during the Conovirus scare were able to witness what is usually hidden behind school walls.

So this is the education children are getting for all of those tax dollars. Learning to hate the very people footing the bill for this “education”. Not only thru property taxes but that same money pays teachers salaries. In spite of many districts being Union Free it doesn’t mean what you think. A percent of every teachers pay is sent off to the teachers union who then uses their power to make sure their voice is heard loud and clear by the politicians that make up the rules. Don’t think the unions don’t care at all about students, why just this year the head of the American Federation of Teachers warned teachers not to post photos of their exotic vacations while insisting neighborhood schools remained closed.

What can be done to alter the course of our failing schools? Budgets can be voted down but those are just increases and most time re-votes are scheduled until they get what they want.  School boards whose job it is to speak for the citizen’s mostly don’t know what is going on in the very schools they represent. They spend their time defending the status quo. Just like our local and national politics we must be informed and active. Ignoring the problems won’t make it go away.

The only hope for future citizens is that there are good teachers out there, their voices are suppressed like in most industries. The students themselves might rebel against authority realize they have be lied to and manipulated thru out their school days and reject the indoctrination they received during their primary education.

The only hope for parents present and future is one of three: 1) Private school if it is economically feasible, after first a thorough due diligence, 2) Home school if someone at home can afford the time, 3) If public school is the only option the time must be found to stay involved and informed to counter act any socialist training.
