Anniversary of Assassination of Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Today is the 53rd year of the assassination of Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. His activism and persistence led to the passage of the Civil Rights Act and desegregation efforts.

One of King’s important quotes: “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.” Yep.

Back then, most people agreed with that, and I believe that most black and other minorities agreed with that enthusiastically.

But today? Hardly. Today many people in academia, media and Hollywood are brainwashed with identity politics. Race and gender especially. They now believe that it matters what your skin color or race is, and you must act accordingly. They are mainly anti-individualists and identitarians. They don’t care about the content of one’s character. Sad.

Another issue with “liberals” is that, while during the 1960s and ’70s they were mainly anti-war, especially in their protests of the American involvement in the Vietnam War, now they are the warmongers of today.

The Clintons during the 1990s with their continuation of bombing and sanctions on Iraq, and bombing Serbia, Obama with his escalation of George W. Bush’s drone strikes over the Middle East and other bombing and war crimes and murders of innocent civilians, and now Harris-Biden the same. “Liberals” support them.

During the 2000s the people on the left protested Bush for his wars of aggression in Afghanistan and Iraq, they called him “Bushitler” and so on. But as soon as Obama became President and continued and escalated the bombing, drone strikes, warmongering and murderous rampages across the Middle East, it was crickets from the “liberals” of Hollywood, academia and media.

And now besides the Harris-Biden bombing such as in Syria, another abandonment of actual defense by the U.S. military is its new obsession with the LGBT agenda. The “defense” secretary Lloyd Austin endorses their priorities of transgender surgeries rather than concentrating on defending America. And further, they are cracking down on “domestic terrorism,” i.e. conservatives or “MAGA” advocates or those who want to “drain the swamp.” (Perhaps Steve Austin would be a better defense secretary than Lloyd Austin, although given current budgets it would probably cost $6 billion rather than $6 million. But I digress.)

Back to Martin Luther King, Jr. He was an outspoken anti-war activist, and he gave a passionate speech against the Vietnam War on April 4th, 1967 at Riverside Church in New York, Beyond Vietnam: A Time to Break Silence. (Video)

As Norman Solomon and Jeff Cohen write in this column, King was condemned by the “liberal” Establishment and media for such a “demagogic slander” and treasonous speech against what were really illegitimate and criminal actions by the U.S. military in Vietnam.

King also gave a different version of that speech later that month, at Ebenezer Baptist Church (video here and here).

Like the current U.S. government’s war on freedom of speech and diversity in thought and opinion that current apparatchiks falsely label as a “war on domestic terrorism,” even in the 1960s they didn’t like criticism of their policies and they cracked down. The FBI and NSA spied on Martin Luther King, Jr. and the FBI kept a dossier on him and harassed him.

King was assassinated exactly one year after his anti-Vietnam War speech on April 4th, 1968, and probably with FBI involvement. As with the JFK assassination, the national security state didn’t like King’s message of peace and non-violence and his outspoken opposition to their war crimes and murders of hundreds of thousands in Vietnam and unnecessary sacrifice of tens of thousands of Americans there as well. And all for nothing.

Some Thoughts on Today’s “Woke” Crowd

There are a lot of societal issues going on recently. As I mentioned a few days ago, it’s just too much, the number of issues to have to deal with. And these days, like in the old Soviet Union and Nazi Germany, you have to watch what you say or write or the intolerant stasi out there will get your blog taken down, get you fired or “canceled,” or burn down your home or business. Yes, the “woke” crowd are today’s Nazis, and I guess that’s just the way it is right now.

So anyway, a Smith College employee recently resigned from her job there because of how the anti-white racists there had been treating her. Former New York Times editor Bari Weiss, who resigned because of a similar culture war at the NYT, presents the Smith College employee’s letter of resignation.

And it isn’t just Smith College, these examples of intolerance and idiocy are happening at most of the colleges and universities here in USSA.

Are you one of those anti-white morons? Why do so many people now see others only in terms of their race or skin color? What the social or anti-social activists are saying now is that equality doesn’t matter, that viewing people by the content of their character is not good but rather we MUST view others by the color of their skin! That is what the crazed kooks are saying now. In the name of “fighting racism,” these nutjobs are themselves promoting racism!

And a lot of members of Antifa are white, like those young, 20-something white kids “living in their mother’s basement” addicted to video games and when they do emerge from their caves they join the other Antifa hooligans screaming about racism and “Black Lives Matter,” while they attack police with rocks and clubs and smash in store windows and loot and burn down whole businesses.

Yet these kids are apparently too dumb or Xanax-numbed to see that their destroying those thousands of businesses in those cities over the past year are causing many of those businesses’ workers there to lose their jobs. Many of those workers in those cities are black, and many of the owners of those businesses in those cities are also black! (“Black Lives Matter”? Sure.)

Did you hear about Coke soft drink’s recent training of their workers to “Be Less White”? How insulting. Why don’t you be less retarded, Coke?

And I have mentioned the new “critical race theory,” that the federal Department of Education had been pushing under Obama but Trump dumped, and now reinstated under OBiden. The “theory” says that all white people are racists and white supremacists, which is absurd. Well then I say that all black people are racists and black supremacists! So there! Isn’t that absurd? Are you one of those nutty college professors or high school teachers who thinks that way and wants to push those wacky ideas onto the young people?

Then there are the “woke” robots at the Big Tech companies. For example, to show how irrational and brainwashed the people at Amazon are now, they are censoring a Clarence Thomas documentary. Ooooh. I know, all that objectionable pornography and hateful speech! The “woke” morons don’t like to see a black person advance to the Supreme Swamp (unless he’s a far-left ideologue of course).

And now Dr. Seuss’s books are deemed “offensive” by eBay, who joins Amazon and Google loony-tunes in their Soviet-style ways of dealing with ideas they are too brainwashed to tolerate.

Another “woke” yet irrational modern phenomenon is the transgender crusade. Uh-oh. Sensitive territory here.

The transgender crusade has led to a situation in which “transgender females,” i.e. biological males, are competing in female sports as a way to cheat their way to championship wins. One guy who fractured a woman’s skull was named the “Bravest Athlete in History” by the woke “sports” wackos. Who ARE these people? (They’re NUTS! That’s who they are.)

So, the one who is a male and thinks he’s a female, or is a female and thinks she’s a male, that’s a gender identity problem, and in some ways it is a mental health issue. And there’s no “hate” or “transphobia” involved in my pointing these things out, I’m not being “hateful,” just rational and telling the truth. The brainwashed activists don’t want to hear the truth, because it goes against their inculcated fanatical dogma about gender and transgender.

And the real mental health issue is not even that much with those who are confused about their actual gender and their identity. No, the real mental health issue is with the older people in their lives who have been telling them, falsely, that they are really the opposite sex than what they actually are. The real mental health problem is with those parents out there, older peers and adults, teachers, and doctors who are psychologically screwing up those young people with this crap about being the opposite sex! Those older people in the youths’ lives are lying to them, and are committing child abuse, in my view. They are literally psychologically abusing the kids when they try to convince them they are actually the opposite sex.

Now, again, there’s no “hate” going on in my expressing my opinion on those issues. I think the real “hate” is on the part of parents, older peers and teachers who are not accepting of the kids being who they actually are. Forget about “societal norms,” or social dictates. But sadly, there is a cult out there.

But speaking of hate, there is a lot of hate being thrown at non-woke, non-brainwashed people, people who don’t go along with the irrational “woke” agenda and people who openly question and challenge it. And also a lot of hate thrown toward non-left people such as conservatives, Christians, Constitutionalists, believers in individual liberty, and those who believe in traditional values. And, as mentioned above, a racist hatred toward white people. Oh, well.

And, there is a lot of hate thrown toward those who challenge election results, such as the 2020 election, which the Trump side challenged, even though Democrats did the same damn thing challenging the 2016 election and electoral college results and the 2004 election and electoral college results as well. Talk about hypocrisy.

So, were I a psychiatrist or psychologist I would have those transgender-pushing parents and teachers, the race-obsessed fanatics, and others in my office and try to find out what’s going on with them. What’s making them want to psychologically confuse and torment kids by trying to convince them they are the opposite sex, or tell white kids they are racists when they are not? And, like Bob Newhart, I would tell them to “Stop it!!”

But then, today’s psychiatrists and psychologists are also brainwashed-woke and in some cases deranged, as well as sickeningly beholden to the pharmaceutical industry. Sick.

And I think that some of that whole crusade might be a part of the larger picture of the death cult, that also includes the “climate change” crusade. The activists want to destroy our standard of living and go back in time to a lower standard of living and impoverishment, frankly, without fossil fuels and “modern conveniences” (like mass production of FOOD to prevent mass STARVATION!). The activists are a part of a death cult, the population control fanatics, in which they want to kill off as many in the population as possible. That is also what this “COVID” and vaccine fanaticism is all about, too. And the LGBT and transgender crusade as well. “Don’t reproduce!” is their message.

Finally, on a lighter note, there’s a “crisis on the border” in the news, just as Barack OBiden becomes the new “President.” The “influx of immigrants” is because the Democrats need as many voters, legitimate or illegitimate it doesn’t matter, as possible in addition to their vote fraud schemes. Non-citizens, prisoners, anyone. They also want to justify their immense welfare bureaucracy. Bureaucracy is their religion.

The conservatives are worried about “sanctuary cities,” which are government-run and controlled sanctuaries for immigrants. I oppose such things because they are run by governments, not out of opposition to immigration or fear of foreigners.

But I do support freedom, the freedom of newcomers to come and make a better life for themselves and their families. But no welfare (for anyone), no government-run “sanctuaries.” Let Americans have the freedom to provide sanctuaries to immigrants if they want to. Let private charities and volunteer organizations, churches, businesses and residents take people in to help them, if they want to. Get the government out of immigration completely.

Unfortunately, the “woke” crowd who wants as many immigrants coming and government-run sanctuary cities are exploiters of vulnerable populations of people and for purely political reasons.

So, that’s what I have to say about all that.

Naomi Wolf on the Escalation of Covidiocy Police State

I obviously don’t agree with Tucker Carlson on everything, but here he discusses the lockdown fascism with Naomi Wolf who has been writing on the police state in USSA for many years now, whether it’s the “war on terror,” FBI harassment of Occupy Wall Street, and now the Covid totalitarianism that “liberals” are imposing. The book Carlson mentioned by Naomi Wolf is The End of America: Letter of Warning to a Young Patriot (2007).
