Bob Frantz has a wide-ranging interview with Peter Kirsanow, commissioner on the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, about the #walkaway campaign, Lebron James and BLM overlooking the overwhelming interracial crimes against whites, the entire Democrat party devoted to false narratives, media blackouts the rise in violence in Democrat-run cities, and Joe Biden plagiarism while campaigning.Read More »
Recent surveys show public opinion closely divided over local and federal decisions to remove Confederate memorials, but no one has polled reaction to violent vandals who topple monuments on their own in spurts of wanton destruction.
In Portland, Oregon, thugs tore down statues of both Washington and Jefferson, while San Francisco radicals trashed a bust of General Grant, the commander whose Civil War victories meant the end of slavery. Decent people may disagree over proper disposition of various commemorations, but there’s no defense for vicious vigilantes who assault public places and property, generally without consequences for their destruction.
Black Lives Matter, along with leaders of the left from Biden to Bernie, ought to speak out clearly and unequivocally against such rampant mobs, or else the public will spurn their other aspirations with appropriate indignation.
Rule of law, and orderly consensus must prevail in coming to terms with America’s past—and our future.Read More »
Black lives matter.
We need to affirm that sentence, but not the movement.
“Black lives matter,” taken as a sentence, is profoundly true. God made every human being in his image, which means every life on the planet—every human life, at every stage, matters.
Yet that sentence is understood today—nearly universally—as expressing approval of a movement rooted in critical race theory, which is grounded in destructive Marxist ideology.
The Black Lives Matter Global Network adopts and promotes the entire worldview of the sexual revolution and seeks to liberate humanity from the oppressive chains of biological gender. The movement also seeks to put an end to the traditional nuclear family.
While we should affirm the sentence “black lives matter,” period—without hesitation and with full enthusiasm, we simply cannot use the sentence as it is now, because it will be heard, nearly universally, as a movement, not as a sentence. The movement has an agenda of revolution that is destructive to God’s creational order.Read More »
In late April, hundreds of Orthodox Jews gathered for the funeral of a beloved Chassidic rabbi, but New York’s mayor deemed their rites “absolutely unacceptable” and threatened mass arrests if it happened again.
A month later, tens of thousands of angry, often violent protestors, rallied for Black Lives Matter but the same mayor encouraged them, boasting of his own daughter’s participation. Simultaneously, 1,300 medical and public health professionals who had previously advocated strict social distancing, signed a statement in support of mass demonstrations and, idiotically, called them “vital to the national public health.”
This ludicrous, illogical switch demonstrates that so-called “social justice activism” has become a substitute religion for secular progressives—with its own saints, martyrs and intolerant, unassailable creed. In this replacement faith, the holiest sacrament is public protest—not because it achieves anything practical but because it amounts to a form of self-destructive, fanatical, secular worship.Read More »
