Racial Inquisition — The Onset of American Stalinism (Opinion)

A sad sight to behold…

Published

on

What I am about to describe scares me more than anything. It should scare you too, regardless of your race, religion, or national origin. When I heard Tucker Carlson describe this, it sent icy shivers up and down my spine. The rapidly spreading influence of a Marxist organization known as Black Lives Matter has exploded to a new level of iniquity.

Seattle has inaugurated a racial inquisition aimed at a specific type of people. White people. The city’s Office of Civil Rights is holding a segregated training session for white city employees that will train them to “undo their whiteness” and affirm their “complicity in racism.” Known as “Interrupting Internalized Racial Superiority and Whiteness,” the session’s existence was exposed by Christopher F. Rufo, an editor for City Journal, and confirmed by Tucker Carlson on his Fox TV show.

An email to Caucasian city workers demanded that they examine their “complicity in the system of white supremacy.” In case any employees are not sure if they should be part of the program, an information sheet describes anyone of Arab, Jewish, Finnish, German, Italian, Armenian or Irish descent as white. According to Rufo, white staffers are being informed by their “diversity trainers” that their behavior patterns are rife with “vestiges of internalized racial oppression.” Participants are urged to cultivate “networks with other white people who are practicing antiracist accomplicehood so you can talk through your struggles in the work of undoing your own whiteness.”

Can you imagine if Seattle required all black employees to undo their blackness? Yeow!!! Doing it to white employees, however, is perfectly acceptable. It’s hard to believe that anyone would go along with this. We are not living in the Soviet Union.

Sadly, Seattle did not invent the racial inquisition. The January 5, 2018, Tucker Carlson Show reported that a school in West Bend, Wisconsin, is brainwashing adolescent children to confess that they are flawed if they happen to be white. Eighth-graders were given “a privilege test that identified them for being white or rich or having an intact family.” This is common, said Tucker Carlson, in schools across the country. School officials in West Bend argued that privilege education is important to “enable the students to succeed in their careers.” The officials failed to explain how shaming 12-year-old kids about their race will constitute a career booster.

If this is not an inquisition, what is? The privilege test is a manifestation of identity politics described by Scott Greer in No Campus for White Men as “bordering on an outright hatred for white people, especially white men.” Greer has exposed similar racial indoctrination training forced by many colleges on white freshmen. An example is the “Whiteness” conference at the University of Michigan designed to help white students recognize their alleged privilege. The purpose, says Greer, is to make whites feel badly about their skin color. Whites should “sit down, shut up, and allow their moral superiors to berate them.”

The New York Post exposed the Bank Street School, an elite private school in Manhattan where they are teaching white students as young as six that “they’re born racist and should feel guilty about benefiting from white privilege,” while their black peers are “taught to feel proud about their race and are rewarded with treats and other privileges.” White parents have complained about how their children are indoctrinated into thinking that systemic racism still exists, that they are part of the problem, and that “any success they achieve is unearned.” Parents are upset that the school “deliberately instills in white children a strong sense of guilt about their race.” A six-year-old came home in tears, saying, “I’m a bad person.”

The idea that white people are inherently flawed is absurd on its face. The value system that has made the US successful as a nation is an achievement of white people, especially white men. This is anathema in today’s “woke” culture. The payoff for the Left’s diversity agenda is racial discord. The goal is to divide and conquer. Minority special interest groups are using the banners of “equality,” “diversity,” and “social justice” to impose their agenda on the white majority.

It is a fight for equality only in the Orwellian sense. “All animals are equal,” George Orwell wrote in Animal Farm, “but some animals are more equal than others.” We are observing a grab for power by vocal minority groups who want to be more equal than others. Look out. If they succeed, they will institutionalize the inquisition.

When the inquisition becomes part of American life, it will be a victory for Marxist revolutionaries and a fatal loss for Americans. And that scares the hell out of me.

SHADOW WAR: Judge Refuses to Reveal Info About FBI’s Raid on Project Veritas

The First Amendment itself is at stake here.

Published

on

You know that things are heading downhill fast for the Biden administration when the FBI is forced to raid home and offices connected to investigative journalists.

In this latest affront to the First Amendment, the Bureau took aim at Project Veritas – a provocative news outlet that just happens to lean to the right – and it’s founder, James O’Keefe, with both suffering raids of their homes after a story emerged regarding their potential possession of a “diary” that once belonged to one of the Biden children.

Now, in what appears to be an attempt to keep this whole debacle as quiet as possible, a federal judge is refusing to let materials related to the case be seen by the public.

A federal magistrate judge in Manhattan has turned down a bid by a journalism advocacy group to make public details about the legal basis for an FBI raid last month on the home of a conservative activist and hidden-camera video producer.

The FBI seized cellphones in the early-morning, Nov. 6 raid on the apartment of Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe in Mamaroneck., N.Y., as part of an investigation that appears to center on the alleged theft of a diary belonging to President Joe Biden’s daughter, Ashley Biden.

The use of a search warrant to seize O’Keefe’s records raised the hackles of some First Amendment advocates, who said O’Keefe’s activities likely qualify for protection for members of the news media under federal law and Justice Department regulations. O’Keefe’s critics say his deceptive tactics and evident partisan bias disqualify him from any claim to being a journalist.

The entire fiasco appears to be turning muddy in recent weeks.

In the 19-page ruling, the magistrate judge referred to O’Keefe as one of the “subjects” of the investigation. Federal prosecutors use that term to describe someone whose activities are being actively examined by the investigation but who is not currently seen as likely to be charged.

If Cave intended to use the term in that sense, it would raise further questions about the raid on O’Keefe’s home, since prosecutors are not typically permitted to use search or seizure warrants to get unpublished media materials about crimes allegedly committed by others.

O’Keefe’s attorney has said that the conservative provocateur bought the “rights” to publish the diary from two individuals who claimed to have obtained it legally. O’Keefe said the people who turned over the diary found it abandoned in a room where Ashley Biden had been staying.

Project Veritas’ First Amendment rights are very much a central issue in this case, and allowing the US government to decide which journalists qualify for these protections is a slippery slope to authoritarianism.

Vaccine Manufacturer Now Says Three Shots Required to Fend Off Omicron

At what point will this all end?

Published

on

Our third COVID-19 winter is now arriving, and there appear to be varying ideas about just what the world should expect.

Winter time has long brought about fears of an increased spread of the illness, thanks to the fact that many more folks will the gathering indoors, where the virus will have an opportunity to spread with less resistance.

But the newest variant of the virus has been described as “mild” by the doctors most familiar with it, and even the normally-glum Dr. Anthony Fauci seems to have backed off of his earlier concerns a bit.

Pfizer this week released a statement suggesting that their vaccine, originally administered in two doses, will require a third shot to be effective against omicron.

Preliminary lab studies show two doses of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine may not provide sufficient protection against the Omicron coronavirus variant, but three doses are able to neutralize it, the companies said in a news release on Wednesday.

Samples from people who had two doses of the Covid-19 vaccine saw, on average, a more than 25-fold reduction in neutralization ability against the Omicron variant than the earlier virus, “indicating that two doses of BNT162b2 may not be sufficient to protect against infection with the Omicron variant,” the companies said.

The companies said two doses may still provide protection against severe disease.

“Although two doses of the vaccine may still offer protection against severe disease caused by the Omicron strain, it’s clear from these preliminary data that protection is improved with a third dose of our vaccine,” Pfizer Chairman and CEO Albert Bourla said in a statement. “Ensuring as many people as possible are fully vaccinated with the first two dose series and a booster remains the best course of action to prevent the spread of COVID-19.”

The news is sure to elicit some grumbling from the masses, who are very much over the continued hysteria regarding COVID-19.
