Alarming Support for Effective Repeal of First Amendment in Favor of Laws Against Politically Incorrect Speech

Despite the Hope & Change inflicted by the bloated federal government through unaccountable agencies like the EPA and the IRS, people still refer to the USA as the “Land of the Free.” But will it still be considered a free country — and will it even be recognizable as America — if the First Amendment falls victim to political correctness? We may soon find out:

YouGov’s latest research shows that many Americans support making it a criminal offense to make public statements which would stir up hatred against particular groups of people.

In practical terms, to “stir up hatred against particular groups” means to say anything deemed critical (or opposed to the interests) of politically favored blocs like blacks, Muslims, illegal aliens, and homosexuals. No one is going to prosecute those who denounce white Christians; that would be racist.

Once we have crossed the Rubicon by discarding the First Amendment, the current slippery slope toward tyranny will be replaced by a plunge off a cliff.

Want to undo Obama’s undoing of welfare reform or reassert law and order in places like Baltimore? That could be construed as hateful toward blacks, who consume a disproportionate amount of welfare money and commit a disproportionate amount of crime.

Worried about terrorism or the rise of the Islamic State? Want to let people know what Islam is actually about? That would be hateful toward Muslims.

Want to secure the border and enforce immigration law before the country is completely overrun by the Third World? Keep it to yourself, lest you commit hate speech against illegal aliens.

Want to read aloud from the Bible? Mind you avoid passages deemed hateful toward homosexuals.

Due to the way cultural Marxism has configured our politics, there is nothing you could say to challenge left-wing ideology that could not be construed as stirring up “hatred” toward a sacred “victim” group. The concept of criminal hate speech effectively bans all intellectual resistance.

Yet look at the numbers they are able to achieve by making us forget the word “freedom” in favor of the phony word “hate”:

hate-speech-criminal-offense

If it were up to the majority of Democrats, I would be hauled off to prison for writing this.

Unsurprisingly, since it would render them immune from criticism, and since many of them are not on board with this whole America thing, 62% if blacks favor criminalizing politically incorrect speech, in contrast to 36% of whites:

hate-speech-criminal-offense

America’s deliberately engineered “changing demographics” make sense from the point of view of tyrants.

Consider the “progress” progressives have made in undermining Christianity by normalizing homosexual marriage in just the past few years. A stand that only recently was too extreme even for Obama and Hillary Clinton is now presented as mainstream, and those who resist it are snarlingly denounced as “haters.” Now consider what leftist social engineers will be able to do with plurality support for criminalizing speech deemed to be politically incorrect.

Reagan famously said that “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.” It looks very possible that this will be that generation — which would reduce the sacrifices we acknowledge on Memorial Day to heroic but futile gestures on behalf of a country that turned out not to be worth dying for.

Obviously we can’t let that happen. In the past we could count on heroes in the armed forces to defend our freedom. But now the primary enemy is within. In the information war, every American has a duty to fight by whatever means they can.

Lifestyles of the Rich and Mostly Useless

In the olden days, the truly rich were people like Henry Ford, Andrew Carnegie, and Andrew Melon. They acquired wealth by generating wealth. Their own money was dwarfed by the rise in the standard of living they enabled for the rest of us. Because of this they are denounced by our new ruling class as robber barons.

This new ruling class has produced its own crop of exceedingly wealthy individuals, who differ in every respect from the capitalist robber barons. Rather than raise the standard of living for the rest of us, they use government to lower it. Rather than produce steel or cars, they prevent others from producing. They found charities like the robber barons did; however, their primary purpose is not philanthropy but to launder bribes.

They are producing a new royalty. A story from March gives an idea of how this royalty lives, even as America’s standard of living declines because of them:

Chelsea Clinton, 33, and husband Marc Mezvinsky, 35, are about to swap their $4 million pad for a huge new $10.5 million one nearby.

The former first daughter and Mr Mezvinksy – who married in 2010 – are believed to have spotted the 5,000 sq ft property while out walking in the area.

The apartment is located in The Whitman building next to Madison Square Park, one of the most desirable corners of Manhattan’s Flatiron District. …

Ms Clinton and Mr Mezvinsky’s floor has four bedrooms, six and a half bathrooms, a home office and den. It also has a 252 sq ft planting terrace and a private storage unit is included with the property.

The five-story building also boasts ‘top-of-the-line’ amenities, including a full time doorman, residents’ only gym and a refrigerated package room.

I bet not even John D. Rockefeller had one of those.

Chelsea Clinton only appears to be the most useless person alive. Her corrupt plutocrat parents have acquired many $millions by monetizing power. They can’t take their ill-gotten fortune with them when the Devil calls them home, so it’s a good thing they have Chelsea to turn it over to.

Currently Shrillary is positioning herself to rake in many more undeserved $millions (if not $billions) by shrieking neo-Marxist rhetoric denouncing the rich. But she only has it in for the productive rich, not her own clan.

Saga of Saida Grundy Continues

When last we heard from the personification of the effect the Affirmative Action mentality is having on higher education, Boston University African-American studies professor Saida Grundy was taunting a traumatized rape victim who neglected to be of politically proper pigmentation. Before that, she was denouncing America and blaming whites for the institution of slavery, which was nearly universal throughout human history until it was brought mostly to an end by Anglo-Saxons at staggering expense. She has denounced white males as a “problem population.” Now we learn that in addition to all this, her curriculum vitae features felony charges:

[Professor Grungy was] reportedly charged in 2008 with felony identity theft after she made a fake account for another woman on the adult website Fling.com.

In December 2007, as Ms. Grundy was still attending grad school at the University of Michigan, she created a fake account on the adult website, according to court records obtained by Boston.com. The fake ad depicted a woman who was dating the same man that Ms. Grundy was also involved with.

Ms. Grundy had reportedly obtained the photos of the woman by accessing the man’s email account, Boston.com said.

According to Ann Arbor police, Ms. Grundy said it was a “jealous” act regarding another man.

She was charged in 2008 with felony counts of identity theft and using computers to commit a crime, Boston.com reported. She was also charged with a misdemeanor count of malicious use of a telecommunications service, the report said.

Ms. Grundy eventually pleaded guilty to the misdemeanor in exchange for dismissal of the felonies.

No worries…

The university’s senior vice president of external affairs, Steve Burgay, said Ms. Grundy’s conviction will not affect her employment at the school.

Saida is still a woman of color who hates white people and America. Her academic credentials remain solid.

Institutionalized Blasphemy: Church of England Considers Transgender Parody of Baptism

Once progressives take over a church, they hollow it out and replace the former content with their depraved moonbattery. This is why all attempts by liberals to subvert Christian churches must be fought tooth and nail:

The Church of England is to debate plans to introduce a ceremony akin to a baptism to mark the new identities of Christians who undergo gender transition.

The Rev Chris Newlands, the vicar of Lancaster Priory, has proposed a motion to the General Synod to debate the issue, after he was approached by a young transgender person seeking to be “re-baptised” in his new identity. …

He said he knew a number of trans people though his work with LGBT organisations.

For 2,000 years, the role of a Christian church was to give people the strength to overcome sin. Now its role is to validate sin and encourage people to wallow in it.

Stalin inflicted far less damage on Christianity by throwing priests and nuns into gulags than liberals have by subverting it.

DHS Let Child-Molesting Illegal Alien Edgar Covarrubias-Padilla Run Loose in USA

Now that it looks like the Boy Scouts will fold on the issue of sending boys out in the woods with people who make an issue of their homosexuality, more troop masters of the politically preferred sexual persuasion will be needed so as to hasten the demise of the hated (by progressives) BSA. In case there is a shortage, more should be brought in from abroad. Jeh Johnson is already on it:

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) knew last year that an illegal alien California camp counselor known as “Papa Bear” was being investigated on child molestation and child pornography charges but did nothing about it, Iowa U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley claims in a letter sent to DHS Sec. Jeh Johnson on Wednesday.

Edgar Covarrubias-Padilla was arrested May 7 and charged with four felonies including child molestation and the distribution of child pornography. According to local news reports, authorities believe that Covarrubias-Padilla also produced child pornography.

Covarrubias-Padilla recently worked as a night counselor at Walden West, an environmental science camp near San Jose. Besides the recovery of 600 child porn images from his computer, Covarrubias-Padilla has been accused of sexually abusing a 10-year-old boy. The Santa Clara County sheriff’s office told Grassley’s office that it had received over 100 phone calls and 50 emails from parents concerned that their child may have been victimized. Covarrubias-Padilla worked at two other camps over the past two years.

In the eyes of our moonbat overlords, all the animals are equal, but few are as equal as an undocumented Democrat who enriches our multicultural tapestry with sexual diversity. Maybe Covarrubias-Padilla will receive hiring priority, once it is official that he qualifies as a troop master in the fundamentally transformed Boy Scouts.

Biden Lectures Naval Academy Graduates With Global Warming Dogma

It wasn’t just a one-off lapse into hardcore moonbattery by the Community Organizer in Chief. Pretending that the primary military threat to the USA and its remaining allies is not the Islamic State, not Iran, not sundry other Muslims with a penchant for terrorism, not a resurgent Russia, not expansionist communist China but the weather is apparently the official policy of the Executive Branch.

On Wednesday Obama harangued graduates from the Coast Guard Academy with a lunatic diatribe promulgating the debunked global warming hoax; today the Navy got the same treatment from his Next in Command:

Speaking at a Commencement Ceremony for the Naval Academy today, Vice President Joe Biden warned graduates that they would have to be prepared for the devastating effects of climate change.

“We’ll rely on you, the United States Navy, to lead in solving these emerging problems,” he said, pointing to the massive devastation caused by a major typhoon in the Philippines.

Implicit in this nonsense is the liberal tenet that typhoons are caused by economic freedom.

This is not mere kookery but an insult to the military, which exists to fight very real and dangerous enemies, not to bob their heads to moronic lies for the greater glory of envirocollectivism.

Meanwhile, ISIS savages are laughing other people’s heads off as they set their sights on abandoned Baghdad.

Boy Scouts Will Cave to Government Pressure, Send Kids Into the Woods With Openly Homosexual Troop Masters

The people in charge of the Boy Scouts recently issued a fatwa against squirt gun fights while sanctimoniously intoning, “What part of pointing a firearm [simulated or otherwise] at someone is kind?” You had to know that this would follow soon:

Robert Gates, president of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA), said the organization’s “status quo” on membership, which prohibits openly homosexual adults, could not be sustained and strongly suggested that the BSA fall in line with the pro-gay “changes taking place” in America today, during a speech at the BSA National Annual Meeting on Thursday.

During his address, Gates referenced the Boy Scouts’ oath that mentions “duty to God and our country,” but he added that “our country is changing.”

That it is, thanks to liberal social engineers — and not for the better.

Gates did not mention that part of the oath where a Boy Scout pledges to keep himself “morally straight.”

Good thing. Merely mentioning the concept of moral rectitude could be construed as a hate crime.

Throughout his speech, Gates sought to balance his push for a policy change with a pledge to protect the religious beliefs of the thousands of churches that financially sustain the BSA.

That is, Gates is officially throwing these churches under the bus, but he will still take their money.

According to the BSA’s website, more than 70 percent of all BSA charters are supported by faith-based organizations.

You can see why liberals set their sights on the intolerably wholesome Boy Scouts.

Pules Gates:

“The country is changing and we are increasingly at odds with the legal landscape at both the state and federal levels.”

That is, he is folding to relentless pressure from our coercively degenerate liberal rulers.

“If we wait for the courts to act, we could end up with a broad ruling that could forbid any kind of membership standard, including our foundational belief in our duty to God and our focus on serving the specific needs of boys,” he continued.

Give the bully your lunch money, and maybe he won’t take your new sneakers too.

The current policy that is being chucked out in favor of total capitulation to militant homosexuals and their cultural Marxist enablers was an attempt to compromise, which one can never do with progressives:

The BSA voted in 2013 to add a provision in its membership policy stating that a boy could not be denied membership based on his sexual orientation alone. The provision passed with a 61 percent majority.

The BSA’s current troop leader policy states: “While the BSA does not proactively inquire about the sexual orientation of employees, volunteers, or members, we do not grant membership to individuals who are open or avowed homosexuals or who engage in behavior that would become a distraction to the mission of the BSA.”

Sorry, not good enough to suit Obama, Dan Savage, and the fanatics who run our courts.

Those who saw the results of the Catholic priesthood becoming infiltrated by homosexuals know what follows next: raped boys, lawsuits, the decline and end of the BSA. One more pillar of traditional America will have been subverted then destroyed.
