Ellie Goulding Bullies Salvation Army

These days it isn’t hard to figure out who the bad guys are. Like a horde of demons unleashed from hell, the legions of the woke will subjugate and defile anything that is good. Now they are coming after the Salvation Army.

Via the Dallas Morning News:

Grammy-nominated singer Ellie Goulding is threatening to cancel her performance at the Cowboys’ Thanksgiving halftime show.

Goulding made the announcement after fans took to her Instagram to accuse the Salvation Army of trans and homophobia — and condemn her for supporting the organization.

That’s the sort of country we live in now; people are accused of supporting the Salvation Army, and are forced to make amends.

Goulding responded to this bullying with some bullying of her own:

“I have reached out to The Salvation Army and said that I would have no choice but to pull out unless they very quickly make a solid, committed pledge or donation to the LGBTQ community,” she wrote.

A well-established Christian organization must explicitly support unnatural behavior that is repeatedly condemned throughout the Bible, because some idiot pop singer says so.

The show, which is set to appear on national TV on CBS during the Dallas Cowboys game against the Buffalo Bills, serves as the kickoff for the Salvation Army’s yearly Red Kettle Campaign. …

The campaign that the halftime show heralds, now in its 129th year, ends on Christmas Eve and is geared toward providing shelter and meals for people dealing with homelessness and hunger. It also supports Christmas toys for children, as well as other social service programs.

None of this counts as doing good works anymore. Either you promote the up-to-the-minute progressive agenda in all of its malevolent sickness, or you will be unpersoned. This goes for institutions as well as individuals.

The Salvation Army in no way is hostile to nor does it discriminate against those who indulge in abnormal sex acts. But that’s not enough. You have to obediently endorse degeneracy and depravity, or Ellie Goulding will tell her fans that you are icky.

Rod Dreher comments:

For certain progressives, there is no amount of good in the world that an organization can do to make up for the fact that it holds religious views that were in the same ballpark as Barack Obama’s public position less than a decade ago.

That’s because for progressives there is only one good: pushing the agenda full steam ahead. It is forbidden to think the way they told you to think yesterday. You must think the way they tell you to think right now.

Now Ellie Goulding says she will perform at the halftime show after all. Via NBC Sports:

The Salvation Army apparently satisfied her concerns.

I hope this did not involve groveling before an advocate of the LGBT agenda. The Salvation Army may have been better off in the long run if it had left Ellie Goulding’s concerns unsatisfied.

LA Derelict Attacks With Diarrhea

Just how filthy a place is moonbattery-rotted Los Angeles? Heidi Van Tassel could tell you. She was getting into her car near the Walk of Fame when a homeless man ran toward her across Hollywood Boulevard. KNBC tells the rest:

Van Tassel was parked in Hollywood after having a pleasant evening out with friends at an authentic Thai restaurant. Suddenly a man randomly pulled her out of the car, dragged her out to the middle of the street, and dumped a bucket of feces on her head, Van Tassel said and public records confirm.

“It was diarrhea. Hot liquid. I was soaked, and it was coming off my eyelashes and into my eyes,” Van Tassel said. “Paramedics who came to treat me said there was so much of it on me, that it looked like the man was saving it up for a month.”

At least justice was done…

The man who attacked her, identified in court records as Jere Blessings, was charged with battery and taken to jail. Blessings was described as a transient with “schizophrenia and psychotic disorders,” records show.

…or maybe not:

Blessings got help, but only for two months. He was sent by a judge to a residential facility for people with mental health issues, and released in August.

Blessings may be psychotic, but he is probably not so out of touch with reality as to think he would receive any significant punishment. Sociopaths have good reason to grow ever bolder as California incrementally decriminalizes criminal behavior.

Another reason homeless lunatics are making Left Coast cities unlivable is that the liberals in charge are spending massive amounts of other people’s money to “solve” the problem by subsidizing it.

There’s no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren’t enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for me to live without breaking laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What’s there in that for anyone? But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed or enforced nor objectively interpreted - and you create a nation of law-breakers - and then you cash in on guilt. - Ayn Rand

Anthem Veterans Memorial

Among the noteworthy attractions here in the Phoenix metropolitan area is the Anthem Veterans Memorial. Via 'Nox & Friends:

At exactly 11:11 AM every Veterans Day (11/11), the sun aligns perfectly with the Anthem Veterans Memorial in Arizona to shine through the ellipses of the five marbled pillars representing each branch of the Armed Forces, illuminating the Great Seal of the United States.

Keeping with the 11 theme, the monument opened on 11/11/2011. More on this admirably creative tribute to veterans from Arizona Capitol Television:

History of Veterans Day

Today isn’t just any Monday. sponsor gives some background on Veterans Day.

It started off as Armistice Day, celebrating the armistice that stopped the live fighting in World War I at 11 am on November 11, 1918. On 11/11/1921, an unidentified American soldier was buried in what became the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington.

In 1926, a Congressional resolution was passed, making Armistice Day a recurring federal holiday, stating that it should be “commemorated with thanksgiving and prayer and exercises designed to perpetuate peace through good will and mutual understanding between nations.”

Good will and mutual understanding did not prevail. Following the War to End All Wars came WWII and Korea.

By the end of the summer of 1953, after the Korean War ended, about one in every two service-age men were veterans and it was decided that Armistice Day would be officially be changed to Veterans Day – honoring all veterans from all wars.

They tried changing the date a couple of times, but now the holiday is firmly established on November 11.

Different areas celebrate Veterans Day in different ways. Most public schools close (normally on the Monday closest to the holiday), as do all federal buildings, most banks, and many businesses. There are parades and celebrations to honor veterans. Perhaps the most iconic is the annual wreath laying ceremony that happens at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

If you have a flag, make sure it is flying. Thank any vets you encounter. Observe a moment of silence at 11 am. All but the most obdurate moonbats should appreciate America’s veterans.

Read the rest at, and as always, stock up on discount ammunition while you are there.
