If the USA can survive as a nation another ten years I would be surprised. Why, would I say that? Well, ‘After Kyle Rittenhouse was acquitted of all charges from the Kenosha shooting, Best Buy and Levi Strauss reportedly offered their employees counseling to those distressed over the verdict. Levi’s offered a session with a “racial trauma specialist” for workers distraught over the acquittal of Rittenhouse — who is white — shooting three white men who assailed him.
Elizabeth Morrison — Levi’s chief diversity, equity, and inclusion officer — sent an email to employees of the San Francisco-based clothing company following the Rittenhouse verdict in Wisconsin.
“With the news that Kyle Rittenhouse was not convicted in the shooting of three individuals — two of whom lost their lives — during racial justice protests last year, this is a difficult day for many,” the email read.
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.
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.
Discipline in schools is racist again under Obama’s third term!
‘The U.S. Department of Education under the new Biden administration may reinstate an Obama-era guideline that incentivizes school districts to use racial quotas in school discipline, according to an education watchdog.
Washington D.C. attorney and education expert Hans Bader recently sounded the alarm on the development, writing in Liberty Unyielding that during a May event co-hosted by the Education and Justice departments that speakers signaled plans to bring back Obama administration guidelines that encouraged administrators to discipline racial student groups at the same rate.
It probably doesn’t come as any real surprise but the enemy has taken over the education system.
‘According to a terrifying report from the Heritage Foundation, as of 2019 there were already 4,500 schools teaching the New York Time’s incorrect and anti-American 1619 Project!
I couldn’t find more up to date data, but Heritage’s 2020 report is shocking enough. Thousands of schools are indoctrinating their students with the Marxist propaganda contained in that abominable project.
‘You may have heard of this concept in the media. Certainly it has become popular in universities and schools in recent years.It is part of the Left-wing drive to embed ‘post-modernism’ in our society: a belief that everything is fluid, that everything we know about ourselves, our identity, our gender, our history, even science, has been manipulated by the capitalist system to deceive us. Critical Race Theory (CRT) argues that racism is embedded in all parts of Australian society, in every person and every institution. Anyone who thinks otherwise is simply suffering from ‘unconscious bias’ – an inability to understand their own views and inherent bias against ‘people of colour’. Why has the Left popularised CRT now? The old Marxist view was that capitalism oppresses the workers to the point of revolution. But this fell over with the Soviet Union and fall of the Berlin Wall. So the new theory is that capitalism oppresses citizens as social beings. And the only way of ridding society of racism, they argue, is to rid it of capitalism itself. So CRT is just a replacement form of revolution theory, given that the last one (based on economics) failed.In truth, CRT distracts from the real challenge in race relations: ending Aboriginal poverty in places that these theorists never visit of even know about. This is the point Jacinta Price consistently makes. The first, overwhelming priority should be addressing Indigenous welfare dependency, family violence, drug and alcohol abuse and school truancy, especially in remote areas.Australia is NOT a racist nation. A series of international surveys have shown Australia to be one of the most racially tolerant places on Earth. Plus, millions of migrants wanting to come here hardly see us as racist against them.The tragedy for the Left is they had a valid, broadly agreed upon position on race that was accepted in society: the Martin Luther King ethos of looking through skin colour and focusing on a person’s character and innate worth. They have blown that way for the radical divisiveness of CRT, unsupported by evidence and public opinion.The true purpose of CRT is revolutionary. It’s a political propaganda exercise that must be driven out of classrooms before it poisons the minds of our young people.’https://www.facebook.com/MarkLathamsOutsiders/?ref=page_internal
‘For over a century, communist influence has worked to foment division and subvert democratic freedoms as well as Biblical Christianity around the globe. These days, that influence has found a different tack for sowing bitterness between “oppressed” peoples and their “oppressors”.
Classic Marxist Grievance: Proletariat (workers) vs. Bourgeoisie (capitalist/professional class).
Revised Neo-Marxist Grievance: “People of Color” vs. “White Supremacy”.
In communist ideology, God is a threat to the unrivaled power of the State. Godless thinking has already achieved a great deal of control over much of the education system. For example, creation science has been censored for years, while evolutionism – with all its flawed and debunked arguments, including its racialized divisions of mankind – has been taught as fact.
Marxist strategy is to subvert the foundations of decency and freedom in civilization – if not by revolutionary fervor, then by a steady chipping away. Undermine the current institutions, and you can set things up for a new Tower of Babel – a new one-world elite-party rule. A consequence of Marxist influence in education is that America is often described as an evil nation whose every advance came at the expense of “people of color”. Yet, the truth is that America has advanced the ideas of freedom and equality more than most any other nation in history!
The ideals of “freedom under God” derive, of course, from the Bible, which has been observed accurately to be the main source for public good in civilization as we know it. From the Bible we get that man has been endowed with “God-given rights” of “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness”. From the Bible we understand that “the rule of law” transcends any one person or party. From the Bible we understand man’s inherently flawed and sinful nature so that for good government, we need checks and balances to prevent the accumulation of power. And from the Bible we can see why the Scientific Revolution took place in Christian Europe, not elsewhere, right on the heels of the Protestant Reformation.
In a biblical worldview, God was and is the great covenant-making, principle-giving, law-giving Creator. Therefore, His created works and the Bible can be studied directly, objectively, and literally – and they are expected to be dependable! There’s no need to impose a filter of outside philosophies, traditions or authorities. This is why western man came up with the Scientific Method which led to modern science.
In 1517, Martin Luther nailed his 95 Theses for reform of the Catholic Church on the door of the Wittenberg Cathedral. The moveable metal type printing press had already enabled high-volume printing for 70 years since Johannes Gutenberg in the 1440s and print shops were spreading over Europe. From
Luther and other reformers, printed tracts and pamphlets about the grand ideas of faith and freedom in Christ, the authority and blessing of the Bible, and the sacred scriptures themselves were able to flow into the hands of people throughout Europe and then the world. They stimulated a lot of thinking. Per the biblical “dominion mandate”, people realized that it is our privilege and honor “to search out a matter” established by our Creator (Proverbs 25:2).
By 1620, Francis Bacon had formalized the Scientific Method as a way to “study God’s works”. Isaac Newton (1642-1726) – still considered to be history’s most world-impacting physicist and mathematician – demonstrated the influence of the Reformation as did so many of the early scientific greats. His contemporaries considered him a very insightful and erudite theologian. And he wrote many religious tracts dealing with the literal interpretation of the Bible!
In effect, “the Christian base gave people faith in the possibility of science”, as described by Alfred North Whitehead, the famous philosopher of science. Even if individual scientists in the West were not Christian, they were living within the thought forms brought by Christianity. Indeed, when we look at history, Chinese science and Arab science, for example, faltered and fell far short of the achievements of Western Civilization.
History reveals the advantages of holding to a biblical worldview. It reveals that the solution to racism is not more racism, as with the reverse-racism of Marxist Critical Race Theory. Believing and living according to the Word of God, being energized by its infusing Spirit and the personification of that Word in Jesus Christ are the key. All peoples can equally benefit from adopting a biblical worldview and throwing aside pagan ideas, false religions and godless philosophies.
Once again, we can go back to Genesis and reading it as the true historical narrative that it is, we can note some historical foreknowledge of people-group differences currently being exploited by Marxist propaganda. Shortly after the Ark of Noah came to rest in the “mountains of Ararat”, Noah, having been found in the shameful aftermath of drunkenness, was essentially mocked by his youngest son Ham. But he was treated very honorably and with an act of restoration by his two other sons, Shem and Japheth. The Bible records that Noah then spoke in response to that treatment in prophetic foreknowledge. He said that the descendants of Japheth (progenitor of European people groups) would be “enlarged” and would “dwell in the tents of Shem” (Genesis 9:27). Shem was, of course, the ancestral line of Abraham who “believed God” and with whom God covenanted to become the spiritual father to all who would believe the gospel and be “counted righteous” such that in him “all nations shall be blessed.”
Blessings of all kinds, now and especially in eternity, follow from faith and fidelity to the truth of God’s written and living Word. This accrues to any and all “people groups”, all of whom are flawed and in need of the Savior. All are of one blood through Noah and Adam.
As science and history continue to play catch-up to the Bible, we are finding more and more reason to believe it literally. Five months ago, we discussed in these newsletters how the Bible is incredibly accurate in its presentation of God as creator of time, matter and space. The God of the Bible transcends time and space – which we now know to be another example of biblical foreknowledge since time and space are linked together as the time-space continuum. In fact, the more we learn about space, the more we understand that the Bible is literally true, even in its opening portions.’https://creationmoments.com/newsletter/how-biblical-is-critical-race-theory/?mc_cid=f683507e58&mc_eid=00c1dcff3c
‘Contrary to a widespread idea, President Biden does not intend to guarantee “equality in Law” of all Americans without distinction of race. On the contrary, he intends to be the champion of “racial equity”, that is to say a form of equality between, not individuals, but what he considers as distinct racial groups. In this article, Thierry Meyssan will use the term “racism” in its literal sense and not in the common sense of “discriminatory behavior”. He will show that by announcing their intention to extend “racial equity” to the whole world, President Biden and the Democratic Party are threatening world peace.
President Biden’s top priority is to impose the ideology of the “1619 Project” on US society and the world.
In a federal state, somewhere in the world, the Department of Education decided to teach in primary and secondary schools that humanity is divided into distinct races.
Although these races are distinct, it is possible to mate them and give birth to children. However, these children will be sterile, like the mules of a donkey and a mare. This is why federal government statistics include whites, blacks, etc., but no mixed-race children.
Since there is an implicit hierarchy between these distinct races and, unfortunately, half-breeds are not sterile, they are automatically counted as belonging to the inferior race. The superior race must be preserved from all defilement.
This federal state was the Nazi Reich, but it is also the United States of Joe Biden and his Secretary of Education, Miguel Cardona.
We are witnessing the return of the “scientific racism” that caused the Second World War and its 70 million deaths. No one seems to be aware of the danger, however, and many people think that the U.S. Democrats are examples of openness to others.
Let us remember that the racism of the 1930s had all the trappings of science. It was researched in many scientific institutes and taught in universities in both the United States and Western Europe. To preserve the master race, many “modern” states had banned interracial marriages before World War I.
Racism is neither of the right nor of the left
In the collective imagination, racism would only develop in right-wing nationalist circles. This is absolutely false.
For example, at the end of the First World War, France occupied the Ruhr coal region militarily. Among the troops were Africans from Senegal and Madagascar for two years. Soon a protest movement developed in Germany, the United Kingdom, the United States and Canada to denounce the ignominy of the French who placed 20,000 blacks to dominate the German whites and rape their women. This racist movement was led by the main anti-racist figure of the beginning of the century, E. D. Morel , and gathered all the international feminist organizations in large demonstrations .
In France itself, socialists joined this racist movement, including Karl Marx’s grandson, Jean Longuet, a journalist at L’Humanité and future leader of the SFIO (Socialist Party).
It must be admitted that, in troubled times like the interwar period or the one we are living today, people follow their impulses whatever their ideas. They are often in complete contradiction with themselves and do not realize it.
The slavery and racist past of the American Democrats
In the United States, slavery and racism were mostly defended by the Democrats against the Republicans.
The Democratic Party platforms of 1840, 1844, 1848, 1852 and 1856 asserted that abolitionism diminished the happiness of the people and endangered the stability and permanence of the Union. The 1856 program declared that the member states of the Union may or may not practice domestic slavery and write it into their constitutions. The 1860 program describes the efforts of abolitionist states that refused to arrest runaway slaves as subversive and revolutionary. The 14th Amendment granting full citizenship to freed slaves was passed in 1868 by 94% of Republican Party legislators and 0% of Democratic Party The 15th Amendment, which granted the right to vote to freed slaves, was adopted in 1870 by 100% of the members of the Republican Party and 0% of the members of the Democratic Party In 1902, the Democratic Party passed a law in Virginia removing the right to vote from over 90% of African Americans. President Woodrow Wilson instituted racial segregation of federal employees and mandated a photo on every job application. The 1924 Democratic National Convention at Madison Square Garden in New York City was called the “Klan-Bake” because of the influence of the Ku Klux Klan in the party.
Things did not really change until 1964, when, just after the Kennedys’ efforts, President Lyndon Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act into law. This was a painful turnaround, as Democratic lawmakers managed to block the legislation for 75 days.
The “1619 Project” is an operation of the New York Times Magazine. It aims to rewrite American history.
The “1619 Project
The Biden administration claims to be anti-racist and no one doubts its good faith. But it is so in the manner of the Democratic Party of the years 1840-1961. That is, in practice, not at all. Quite the contrary.
Its educational decisions are designed to promote the ideology of the « 1619 Project ». According to this ideology, the United States was not founded by the War of Independence against the British Crown, but more than two centuries earlier, in 1619, with the idea of enslaving black people.
The “1619 Project” was marked by a series of supplements and then dedicated articles in the New York Times since 2019. In doing so, this daily newspaper has moved from trying to report the truth to becoming a propaganda tool for Puritan ideology. According to the NY Times, Native Americans were slavers like the Europeans. However, the Spaniards freed the Amerindian slaves who fled their masters on the condition that they converted to the true faith, Catholicism. In the end, the European colonies in the Americas only really developed after the arrival of black slaves from Angola on the territory of the current USA, in 1619. The War of Independence was not against the unjust taxes of the British Crown, but to preserve the slave system. This is why the United States is systemically racist. It is the duty of every white man to realize the undue privilege he enjoys and to redress the crimes of white patriarchy.
This theory does not rise from history . It mixes slavery and racism (for example, Native Americans enslaved their enemies, but they were not racist). It ignores white slaves (among the first slaves in North America were Englishmen who were convicted by the courts). It despises the emancipation of the colonists from England. Finally, it was not the United States, but the Portuguese who brought slavery to the colonists and traded it. Moreover, this theory is American-centric and ignores the slavery of blacks and their systematic castration by the Arabs for a thousand years.
This theory is religious. It takes up the myth of original sin, which it transforms, and for which it makes every white man responsible. Like the iconoclasts, the Puritans or the Wahhabites, its supporters destroy the impure representations of those who have sinned, starting with the Southern generals.
Each lie begets a new one. Indeed, the Southerners were not defending slavery (which they abolished before the end of the Civil War), but the right of each Confederate state to have its own customs.
The supporters of the “1619 Project” acted exactly like what they intended to fight: men were no longer guilty for what they did, but at birth, by heredity.
Joe Biden’s institutionalization of racism
When the Biden administration’s Secretary of Education, Miguel Cardona, decided to promote the “1619 Project” in elementary and secondary schools, there was a nationwide protest.
The most interesting reaction was in Oklahoma. The local Congress passed a bill, which was immediately signed into law by Governor Kevin Stitt. The latter is a Cherokee Indian and a Jacksonian like Donald Trump . This law, HB 1775 (download the text at the bottom of this page), prohibits anyone from teaching the following eight racist propositions:
1. one race or gender is inherently superior to another race or gender. 2. an individual, because of his or her race or gender, is inherently racist, sexist, or oppressive, consciously or unconsciously. 3. a person should be discriminated against or treated adversely solely or in part because of his or her race or gender, 4. members of one race or gender cannot and should not attempt to treat others without regard to their race or gender. 5. the moral character of an individual is necessarily determined by his or her race or sex. 6. an individual, because of his or her race or gender, bears responsibility for the past actions of other members of the same race or gender. 7. any individual should feel discomfort, guilt, anxiety, or any other form of psychological distress because of their race or gender. 8. meritocracy or traits such as a hard work ethic are racist or sexist or have been created by members of a particular race to oppress members of another race.
The legislation banning the teaching of all or parts of these eight propositions in Oklahoma schools was passed by 100% of Republican lawmakers and 0% of Democratic lawmakers.
We must measure the consequences of the “1619 Project” ideology that the Democratic Party and the Biden Administration intend not only to apply in the United States, but to spread throughout the world. It can only lead to massive violence.
