‘On my daily bike ride, I had to stop and photo this. Standing in the street with my cell phone, photographing the yard with the yard signs, “Black Lives Matter,” “Hate Has No Home Here,” “Stop Asian Hate” and the ubiquitous sign with a list of virtues, the home’s resident came out the front door yelling, “What are you doing?” I replied, “I’m taking a picture of your yard for the Virtue-Signalling Yard of the Month Award.” “Get off my property, mind your own business, get a life,” she bellowed as an I rode away.’https://genzconservative.com/sights-to-be-seen-on-a-bike-ride/?utm_source=mailpoet&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=occupied-america-racist-anti-racism-and-the-contradictions-of-american-life_199

‘As a 22-year-old college grad working a nine-to-five job in advertising, Morgan Zegers wanted more. So she took a chance. That’s what one does in America, after all.
In 2019, Zegers quit her job and launched her nonprofit, Young Americans Against Socialism, or YAAS, a nonprofit dedicated to exposing the truth about socialism and communism while educating millennials and Generation Z on the benefits of classical liberalism and capitalism.
She did not tell her parents, and says she felt “very nervous” and knew there were “no guarantees.”
“Am I going to get paid one day?” “Is this going to fail after a week?” These questions and more filled her mind, she says, but she pushed forward. Then things started to happen, with appearances on Fox & Friends, Glenn Beck’s radio program and a speech at the national Tea Party rally.
She quickly knew she had made the right choice.
“You can work in a job that doesn’t make you feel fulfilled, and that will feel like you are slowly being waterboarded everyday. Or, you can choose to follow your passion,” Zegers told The College Fix in an interview.
Today, Zegers, 24, is a guest on a plethora of podcasts and has become a Turning Point USA darling and a frequent contributor to The First TV and Newsmax. YAAS, meanwhile, uses social media as a major tool in reaching young people.
On social media, add up her and her organization’s followers on various platforms such as Instagram, YouTube and Twitter, and it’s well over several hundred thousand and growing.’https://www.thecollegefix.com/meet-gen-zs-industrious-commie-fighting-warrior-morgan-zegers/
John Hopkins is or was a well respected name but it seems to have now become WOKE and is pushing systemic racism.
‘Thursday, June 17, 2021 – Today, the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Equity, the Johns Hopkins Center for American Indian Health, and the Johns Hopkins Center for Public Health and Human Rights at the Bloomberg School of Public Health announce the publication of a new supplemental issue of the peer-reviewed journal Health Security on systemic racism, US health security, and COVID-19. The open access issue examines how systemic racism is manifested in the practice of health security in the United States and how it has affected preparedness for, responses to, and recovery from COVID-19.
The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has substantially damaged population health, social fabrics, economies, and health systems across the world. In the United States, many of these costs are overwhelmingly borne by populations of color. These groups report disproportionately higher levels of COVID-19 morbidity and mortality because of ineffective response efforts and decades-long failures to address longstanding inequities in access to healthcare and other social safety net programs. More peer-reviewed research that examines the root causes of racial inequities in COVID-19-associated morbidity and mortality—and the systems that perpetuate them—is urgently needed. This new supplemental issue contributes to filling this gap.
The Health Security supplement includes 13 papers and 1 letter examining the relationship between systemic racism in the United States and the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The 5 original articles featured address practice- and research-based analyses of socioeconomic factors associated with COVID-19 incidence, risk communication challenges, mental health disparities stemming from the pandemic, and structural factors contributing to COVID-19 inequities. Two case studies describe healthcare utilization among communities of color and the impact of xenophobic rhetoric on healthcare access. The 6 commentaries examine a broad array of topics, including strategies to improve diversity and inclusion at academic public health institutions, the effects of immigration policies and refugee health organizations on migrant health, and the role of harm reduction treatment during the COVID-19 era. Finally, the letter responds to a previously published article on mass vaccination in the United States, underscoring the importance of incorporating racial equity considerations into routine planning and preparedness efforts
“This supplement… aims to shed light on how systemic racism contributes to inequities in morbidity and mortality, curtails access to lifesaving preventive and curative measures, and undermines the health and agency of hard-hit populations of color as the United States responds to COVID-19,” write Sanjana Ravi, Lane Warmbrod, and coauthors in the special feature’s introduction. “These papers illustrate various ways in which both COVID-19 and the ensuing response at national, state, and local levels have exacerbated racial inequities and transformed public experiences of care seeking, advocacy, and wellbeing in the United States.”https://www.centerforhealthsecurity.org/news/center-news/2021-06-17-SpecialissueSystemicRacism.html

‘Neurosurgeon and former U.S. Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson took on critical race theory in a recent interview, calling it “a bunch of garbage.”
In an interview Sunday on NewsMax, Carson was asked to define critical race theory.
“It’s an attempt to use race as a mechanism for redefining our society,” Carson said. “It wants our people to believe that your race is the most critical determinant of who you are and what happens to you in our society. In other words, it’s a bunch of garbage.”’https://www.thecollegefix.com/neurosurgeon-ben-carson-on-critical-race-theory-its-a-bunch-of-garbage/
In Biden’s America ‘“Purge” is well chosen, because that’s exactly what this is, a nakedly political purge of the loyal opposition, and the forcible silencing of political dissent in America. It’s plain as day what is coming. What is not clear is whether or not there will be any significant number of Americans who stand for freedom and against tyranny.
And as a minor addendum, of course, Jihad Watch will be one of the many casualties of their campaign to “purge” the Internet of “extremist content.” We stand for the values of the Constitution of the United States and the denial of those rights to no one. We stand for the enforcement of the nation’s existing laws to protect the freedom of speech, the freedom of conscience, and the equality of rights of all people before the law. We do not support the supremacy of any race or any other group. But the Left and Islamic groups have for years insisted that to stand against jihad violence and Sharia oppression of women was “hate.” And they have all the power now.
“White House calls Capitol riot a ‘terrorist attack’, introduces Pentagon anti-radicalization to stop the ‘lethal’ rise of ‘white supremacy’ in the military and pushes to ‘purge’ the internet of ‘extremist content,’” by Rob Crilly, Daily Mail, June 15, 2021 (thanks to Henry):
The Pentagon is to start training for service members leaving the military to prevent them being radicalized by violent extremists, as part of Biden administration’s plan to combat the ‘lethal threat’ of white supremacy that was unveiled on Tuesday morning.
It follows a review that stated the most dangerous elements of the threat today come from white supremacists and anti-government extremists.
The White House also called the Capitol riot a ‘domestic terrorist attack’ in a report released on Tuesday and backed a ‘purge’ of extremist content online.
The strategy includes $100 million for the Department of Justice, the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security for analysts, prosecutors and investigators.
‘In addition, the Department of Defense is incorporating training for servicemembers separating retirements in the military, who may potentially be targeted by those who seek to radicalise them,’ said an administration official.
‘Domestic terrorist attacks in the United States also have been committed frequently by those opposing our government institutions. In 1995, in the largest single act of domestic terrorism in U.S. history, an anti–government violent extremist detonated a bomb at the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, killing 168 people – including 19 children – and injuring hundreds of others,’ the report says.
‘In 2016, an anti–authority violent extremist ambushed, shot, and killed five police officers in Dallas. In 2017, a lone gunman wounded four people at a congressional baseball practice. And just months ago, on January 6, 2021, Americans witnessed an unprecedented attack against a core institution of our democracy: the U.S. Congress.’
The move follows revelations that a disproportionate number of people arrested during the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol were active military personnel or veterans.
Experts in domestic terrorism have long warned that far-right militants were targeting people with military or law enforcement training for recruitment.
The new strategy brackets the Capitol assault – when thousands of Trump supporters descended on Congress – with mass shootings at a synagogue in Pittsburgh and a Walmart in El Paso as part of the country’s ‘tragic history’ of domestic terrorism
The strategy will also address the danger of ‘insider threats’ within the military or security agencies.
‘The Department of Defence, Department of Justice, and Homeland Security Department are similarly pursuing efforts to ensure that domestic terrorists are not employed within our military or law enforcement ranks, and that they improve their screening and vetting processes,’ said the official.
‘Training and resources will be developed for state, local, tribal and territorial law enforcement partners as well as for sensitive private sector partners, to enable them to enhance their own employee screening programme, and to prevent individuals who post domestic terrorism threats and being placed in positions of trust.’
The strategy will be launched by Attorney General Merrick Garland on Tuesday morning.
In a foreword, President Biden said America could not ignore the threat from domestic terrorism.
‘Together we must affirm that domestic terrorism has no place in our society,’ he said.
‘We must work to root out the hatreds that can too often drive violence.
‘And we must recommit to defend and protect those basic freedoms, which belong to all Americans in equal measure, and which are not only the foundation of our democracy— they are our enduring advantage in the world.’
The strategy comprises four pillars: enhancing analysis and information sharing between agencies; preventing recruitment and mobilization to violence, including targeting the online spread of hate; disrupting and deterring terrorism, including the $100 million cash injection; tackling long-term drivers such as racism and the flow of firearms….’https://www.jihadwatch.org/2021/06/bidens-handlers-unveil-program-to-fight-white-supremacy-in-military-and-purge-internet-of-extremist-content
The Victorian Police are acting like the Nazi Brown Shirts during Hitler’s time. It is terrifying what is going on in Melbourne, Victoria. Is this all a prelude to more CCP type take over of your freedoms?
Other than the Scriptures this is just another reason why I am an independent Baptist!
‘In what is shaping up to be a historic annual meeting of the Southern Baptist Convention in Nashville, Tennessee, this month, the denomination’s Resolution 9 acknowledging critical race theory as a useful tool to explain how race has and continues to function in society is the target of multiple resolutions seeking to strip it of its power.
Denny Burk, professor of biblical studies at Boyce College, the undergraduate school of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky, revealed in a blog post Friday that he was aware of nearly 60 resolutions being submitted to the Resolutions Committee asking SBC messengers to condemn critical race theory.
“I am aware that a number of people have submitted resolutions relating to CRT. I know of at least three that are opposed to CRT (here, here, and here) and one that is in favor of CRT (here). As I write this, it looks like there are about 57 people submitting the exact same resolution as Mike Stone’s proposed resolution,” Burk wrote.
Mike Stone, the pastor of Emmanuel Baptist Church in Blackshear, Georgia, and one of three nominees vying to become the next president of the nation’s largest Protestant denomination, recently proposed a resolution asking the denomination to condemn the theory.
The proposed resolution also seeks to affirm the controversial portion of the November 2020 statement from the Council of Seminary Presidents that states, “affirmation of Critical Race Theory, Intersectionality and any version of Critical Theory is incompatible with the Baptist Faith & Message.”
“And these are just the ones I know about because they’ve been publicized on the internet,” Burk added.
“I have heard through the grapevine that there are other proposals that haven’t been publicized and that we won’t know about until the Resolutions Committee reports on them at the convention. This means that the committee is not going to be able to please all sides and likely won’t try to. It also means that they have their work cut out for them.”
Regardless of what happens, Burk expressed confidence that SBC messengers “won’t leave Nashville without a strong resolution against critical race theory.”
“I have heard of at least one effort to rescind 2019’s Resolution 9. If that came to the floor of the convention, I would support it, but I’m not sure if it’s possible under the rules (someone else who knows more about Robert’s Rules can weigh-in),” he wrote.
“But I’m also not sure that it’s even necessary. If the convention passes a strong resolution against CRT, it would serve as a de facto rescinding of Resolution 9 (sort of like subsequent resolutions became a de facto repudiation of the SBC’s infamous pro-choice resolution of 1971). For me, the priority is getting a strong statement against CRT. That is the main thing.”
The professor expressed support for a resolution proposed by Stephen Feinstein, a pastor at Sovereign Way Christian Church in Hesperia, California, and a chaplain in the United States Army Reserve.
“What I like about this is that it defines ‘institutional racism’ not as CRT does, but in terms of willful discrimination,” Burk explained.
“In CRT, no human agency is required at all for racism to be present in a given institution or system (as I have written about here). CRT says that racism is everywhere all the time and that all white people are racists whether they choose to be or not. Any racially disparate outcome is racism even if no one willfully discriminated against anyone.”
Burk argues that such an argument is “completely incompatible with what scripture teaches about sin and judgment, but this resolution fixes that.”
“It recognizes that sinful partiality can affect institutions and systems while not alleging that all institutions and systems are racist by default (as in CRT),” he wrote.
Any member of a cooperating Southern Baptist church can propose a resolution for adoption by the SBC.
However, the SBC Committee on Resolutions may decline to recommend properly submitted resolutions to the convention for adoption.
Prominent Southern Baptist Pastor Dwight McKissic, who founded and leads Cornerstone Baptist Church in Arlington, Texas, warned earlier this year that if Resolution 9 is rescinded, he would leave the SBC.
His threat came after he quit the Southern Baptists of Texas Convention after leaders adopted a “strongly worded, anti-CRT policy that denounces all aspects of critical race theory.”
McKissic’s declaration also came amid an exodus of prominent black Southern Baptist pastors, such as Ralph West and Charlie Dates, over the Council of Seminary Presidents’ renouncing critical race theory and intersectionality.
The 2021 annual gathering of the Southern Baptist Convention is set to take place in Nashville, Tennessee, on June 15 and June 16. More than 13,000 messengers have pre-registered for the event, according to Ronnie Floyd, president of the SBC Executive Committee.
Only four other conventions have attracted at least 10,000 messengers since 2000, he said.
“This could be one of our largest gatherings since 1995 in Atlanta, when we had 20,654 messengers,” he recently noted.’https://www.christianpost.com/news/critical-race-theory-sparks-flurry-of-resolutions-for-sbc-meeting.html?uid=d3769f0ce2&utm_source=The+Christian+Post+List&utm_campaign=CP-Newsletter&utm_medium=email
