Toxic femininity celebrates killing children up to their 1st breath without anesthetic

Please use that response or something similar whenever any Leftists whine about “toxic masculinity” (which to them means any form of masculinity, because men = bad).

That goes double for anyone from the “Christian” Left.

This video is awesome.  Please share.  Hat tip: Dalrock  Bonus from Dalrock to work into conversations as appropriate: “He’s the kind of man who shaves with Gillette . . .” Ouch.

P.S. And yes, they are children.  At least that’s what the folks at dictionary.com say.

Will Procter & Gamble put out ads shaming women for killing their children?

Because if having your children killed isn’t “toxic femininity,” then what is?

I’m sure you’ve seen or read about the anti-male, anti-white, and especially anti-white male Gillette ads.  I refuse to watch them, even for analysis.  But it raises the question: Why don’t these virtue-signalers shame women for killing their children via abortion and shame Leftists for making legalized child-killing their #1 political goal?

Oh, right, because they are hypocritical Molech-worshiping ghouls.

“Bruce Jenner is still a man, homosexuality is still a sin.”

The Captain Obvious quote in the title was posted on a church sign in a presumably conservative area and still got the rabid Leftists outraged.  The pastor was forced out, as it turns out that only he and one family in the church know the Bible and/or basic biology.

I encourage you to share these truths while you can.  Again, if the winner of the Men’s Decathlon 1976 Olympics is a female then anorexics really are fat and the “loving” thing would be to encourage them to diet more.  And the Bible couldn’t be more clear that homosexual behavior is a sin.

Like George Orwell is said to have said, in a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act. Unlike the phony rebels of the entertainment industry, real revolutionaries tend to get in big trouble, like the pastor in rural Northern California who was forced out of his church over a sign that read, “Bruce Jenner is still a man, homosexuality is still a sin.” The sign, shared on the pastor’s Facebook page, sparked protests and national news coverage. Justin Hoke announced his departure on the Trinity Bible Presbyterian Church Facebook page on Saturday evening.No one can dispute that what the sign said is true. They don’t have to dispute it. It was thoughtcrime. The truer, the more criminal. “I was informed that essentially all but one couple in membership would leave the church if I continued as pastor of TBPC,” Hoke said in his post.If there are any Bibles in the church, Hoke ought to take them with him; the congregation won’t be needing them. The Bible confirms the latter part of the sign’s forbidden message repeatedly. Biology books would confirm the part about Bruce Jenner.

 

Study proves what we already knew: Leftists are the real racists who patronize minorities to virtue signal

I’m not surprised at the results of this study, but I am surprised it didn’t get suppressed — though of course, the Leftist media will ignore it.  Way too much truth for the Left to handle!  Via Source: White liberals ‘patronize’ minorities by downplaying competence — conservatives don’t.

White liberals present themselves as less competent when addressing minorities, while conservatives use the same vocabulary no matter what the race of their audience, according to a newly released study.Yale and Princeton researchers found that white Democratic presidential candidates and self-identified liberals played down their competence when speaking to minorities, using fewer words that conveyed accomplishment and more words that expressed warmth. On the other hand, there were no significant differences in how white conservatives, including Republican presidential candidates, spoke to white versus minority audiences.“White liberals self-present less competence to minorities than to other Whites — that is, they patronize minorities stereotyped as lower status and less competent,” according to the study’s abstract. Cydney Dupree, assistant professor of organizational behavior at the Yale School of Management, said she was surprised by the findings of the study, which sought to discover how “well-intentioned whites” interact with minorities.

This explains why the Left — including the “Christian” Left — is so patronizing to minorities.  Rachel Held Evans is a typical example, where she often says how we need to read black female writers, but never explains why.  But Leftists like her think that they are virtuous because they pat minorities on the head.  Predictable, but sickening.  Conservatives act virtuously towards minorities, but Leftists just react in meaningless and hypocritical ways and think that qualifies as good works on their part.

Here’s another example.  Sadly, this seems to work on minorities.

“Jesus Calling” is still being recommended by people who should know better

Tim Challies has a great post called 10 Serious Problems with Jesus Calling.   There are two very disappointing things about that book:

  1. That people are so biblically ignorant and/or desperate that they can’t see what a fraud Sarah Young is.
  2. That church leaders are equally fooled and/or too cowardly to tell their flocks how awful the book is.

In one of the many reasons you should not trust CBN (home of Pat Robertson), look what book they put at the top of their recommended “Christian” best seller list.

Walk into a Christian bookstore and you will be greeted with shelves and shelves of faith-based novels and Bible teaching books. Log onto an online store and even more titles are at your fingertips. So how do you know what to buy?

Take a look at these best-selling Christian works. They are ones you should definitely keep in your book collection at home.

1. Jesus Calling by Sarah Young
Missionary Sarah Young shares uniquely inspired spiritual insight in memorable, thought-provoking daily devotionals. Jesus Calling is written from Jesus’ point of view in a touching first-person format that enables readers to experience the Savior speaking directly to them through scripture.

“It felt a little awkward the first time I tried it, but I did receive a short message. The content was biblical, and it addressed themes that were current in my life: trust, fear, and closeness to God. I responded by writing in my journal as usual; at that point my journaling changed from monologue to dialogue. Day by day, messages began to flow more freely.” – Sarah Young, on beginning a “dialogue” with God

A leader at my former church (one of the reasons it is my former church) though it was a good book and read it often.  Sad.

Please share Challie’s link and help educate people on how to improve their discernment.

Thoughts on “Iron Curtain: The Crushing of Eastern Europe, 1944-1956”

As previously noted, I saw this fascinating historical fact in a book I’m reading about the Cold War.  The book was published in 2012, so it predates Antifa by many years.  The author was describing the spread of the secret police (the NKVD / KGB) into Eastern European countries and how they relentlessly went after fascists, or more specifically how they called anyone they didn’t like a fascist as a pretext to imprison or kill them.

But in every country occupied by the Red Army, the definition of “fascist” eventually grew broader, expanding to include not only Nazi collaborators but anybody whom the Soviet occupiers and their local allies disliked. In time, the word “fascist,” in true Orwellian fashion, was eventually used to describe antifascists who also happened to be anticommunists. And every time the definition was expanded, arrests followed.

Some of these “fascists” had been identified in advance . . .

But the book had so much more about Communism in Eastern Europe that you don’t often hear about.  The parallels to current Leftists is chilling but not surprising.  Political correctness — that is, making people say things they know aren’t true – isn’t new.

The loss of freedom, tyranny, abuse, hunger would all have been easier to bear if not for the compulsion to call them freedom, justice, the good of the people … Lies, by their very nature partial and ephemeral, are revealed as lies when confronted with language’s striving for truth. But here all the means of disclosure had been permanently confiscated by the police. —Aleksander Wat, My Century

The “progressives” in the U.S. are mostly useful idiots who will be eliminated first.  They have no idea how Communist states will restrict the freedom and creativity that these people take for granted.

In order to buy paints and brushes, artists had to have a tax number issued by the association and a membership card confirming the tax number. Anyone who wanted to paint, in other words, had to conform at least enough to remain a member of the association. Choosing not to join could mean choosing not to work as an artist at all.

The current Commies have been successful at destroying the Boy Scouts and Girls Scouts and other social organizations, just as their predecessors were.

At several points in 1947, Polish authorities considered shutting the Scouting movement down altogether. They worried, however, that a ban would send thousands of young people into the arms of the underground, or into the woods with the partisans. So they waited. And eventually, they adopted the tactic which, as noted, would become a standard tool in the Eastern European communist arsenal: they resolved to destroy the movement from within.

From the “sound familiar?” category, the campus snowflakes who shout down opposing views are nothing new.

Although his party allegedly controlled a third of the seats, whenever he spoke—or when any of his deputies spoke—the whole room would erupt in boos and catcalls, making it impossible to hear a word.

And one more “sound familiar?” bit:

Although they didn’t necessarily say so in public, most communist leaders shared Lenin’s loathing for small business.

The good news is that no matter what they Commies tried – and they tried everything from propaganda to murder – they could never accomplish their goal of making everyone support the regimes.

Like the CIA, the KGB, Khrushchev, and Dulles, Arendt had come to believe that totalitarian regimes, once they worked their way into the soul of a nation, were very nearly invincible. They were all wrong. Human beings do not acquire “totalitarian personalities” with such ease. Even when they seem bewitched by the cult of the leader or of the party, appearances can be deceiving. And even when it seems as if they are in full agreement with the most absurd propaganda—even if they are marching in parades, chanting slogans, singing that the party is always right—the spell can suddenly, unexpectedly, dramatically be broken.

The bad news is that unlike parts of the Eastern European churches that gave in to Communism, the “Christian” Leftist in the west volunteered for the mission to oppose the real Gospel and to spread Communism.

Random post-election thoughts: Generally positive

Somehow the Republicans (or someone posing as them) got my mobile number and sent a dozen or more texts for donations.  Before blocking them permanently, I’d usually reply as follows: “Try again after you start the wall and defund Planned Parenthood.”  I’ve been thrilled with much of what Trump has done, but the Congress has no excuse for not starting the wall and for not continuing to let Planned Parenthood and Democrat politicians take turns giving each other my money.

That Senate majority is huge.  They can get lots done and more quickly now that people like Murkowski are superfluous.

Make no mistake: As painful as the Kavanuagh nonsense was to go through, if the Democrats hadn’t done such unethical things with it they would have won the Senate.  And their stunts will harm them for years.

Trump is already epically trolling the Dems by supporting Pelosi.  They will make people afraid to support her and/or undermine her if she wins.

Prediction: The House Dems will overplay their hand and push independents to the right, or they will underplay it and de-motivate the Leftist extremists (which is pretty much the entire party these days).  Either way, Trump will probably be better off than if the House had barely stayed in Republican hands.

Keith Ellison and other Dems accused of sexual misconduct won, which will give the Republicans fodder for pointing out the Leftist #MeToo (“PoundMeToo”) hypocrisy.  After all, he had a credible and much more recent allegation of harming women that the Democrats and the Leftist media deliberately ignored.

People say gridlock like it is a bad thing.  I think some gridlock is good.

Stunts like demanding Trump’s tax returns will distract the Leftists from realizing their leaders are accomplishing nothing.  There is nothing in the returns which would harm Trump, or the IRS would have done something already and probably leaked it.  The economically illiterate Leftists couldn’t understand the financial and tax concepts anyway, and they’ll be the only ones fooled if the Dems try to distort what is in the returns.

Maxine Waters gets more power!  Great move, Dems.  If you created a fictional character like Maxine, it would be considered extreme racism.

Beto was a perfect example of Leftist deception. While not fleeing the scene of accidents he caused while under the influence, he pushed eminent domain abuses to help his billionaire father-in-law. Yeah, he’s a real man of the people. And looser borders? Insanity. But of course the Left bought into his cult of personality bit (“Oooh, he skateboards!!  And uses the F-bomb in concession speeches!!”). So glad they wasted their money.  Sure, run him for President and we can watch more videos of him getting blasted by the Hispanics whose property he was trying to steal.

It was sweet, sweet schadenfreude to know that people like Racist Held Evans, who bragged about giving lots of her money to the Beto campaign (even though she lives in Tennessee), lost so badly.  Bonus: Marsha Blackburn won big even though Evans and Taylor Swift came out in favor of Bredesen.  Love it!
