Active Engagement Continues, Parents and Teachers Begin Standing Up Against Virginia School Boards

Parents across the nation are beginning to recognize just how infected local school boards have become with the advancement of Critical Race Theory (CRT).  More and more parents and students are uniting to push back against the politicization of schools by ideologues within the school administration.

In Loudon County Virginia the school board is confronted by concerned parents.  One teacher from Fairfax County traveled to support the parents in Loudon County and sends a message of support to parents and students.   It is great to see a teacher confront the machine…

We need more teachers like her…  GREAT JOB !

If the education fractures or cleaves between Red States (Freedom, Patriotism) and Blue States (Indoctrination, Sheep), we will likely see an even greater intellectual diminishment amid the Democrat orthodoxy which is dependent on communal thought.

One example of the parent’s message:

Founder of Moderna Canceled by Twitter for Confirming Truth

t is time that the people DEMAND the end to censorship. The immunity given to platforms was to prevent them from being sued for posts of others. Not that they are now the Censors of society. They are endangering people’s lives and they should be dragged out of their offices and put on trial for sedition. This is supposed to be a government by and for the people – not World Economic Forum, Bill Gates, and politicians lining their pockets to create concentration camps to reduce CO2 and the population.

The Democrats are protecting this consortium and not the people!

Why BigTech are State Actors & Violate our Civil Rights


Armstrong Economics Blog/BigTech Re-Posted May 27, 2021 by Martin Armstrong

As many know, I lived in London years ago. At the upper end of Hyde Park by Marble Arch, there is Speakers’ Corner. That is where anyone could stand up and talk about anything that they wanted. You were free to listen or just walk away. There would often be a crowd, and that was not an indication that they agreed. It simply meant that the topic was curious, worth listening to or just entertaining crazy talk.

Speakers’ Corner even shows up on Google Maps, showing that this is indeed a landmark. What is important about this is that Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube, especially those who claim to be public forums, also claim they have the right to censor what you say or even think. Section 230 only gave them immunity from suit because someone posted something another did not like. In that context, it was a reasonable grant of immunity. It would be like suing the city of London because someone at Speakers’ Corner said something that offended you.

You cannot be a public forum by deleting people and canceling anyone you do not like. Speakers’ Corner in London is what these forums were supposed to be. If someone is a Nazi and hates Jews, so be it. They have a right to say that just as the rest of us have the right to shake our heads and walk away as in Hyde Park. It used to be an easy world. If someone was talking to themselves walking down the street, we just looked at them as being strange. We didn’t run to the police screaming we were offended by what the crazy person said. Today, people are walking down the street and talking perhaps to themselves, but then again, maybe they have an earpiece for a phone. Life has become much more complicated. Now it seems the crazy people are in charge of the forums in BigTech and they are saying we no longer have the right to free speech.

Facebook whistleblowers have leaked documents detailing the effort to censor vax concerns on a global scale secretly. None of this is legal for Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube all have connections to the left side of government and that means that they are acting in violation of the Constitution under the pretense of being private when in fact they are acting as agents of the state. This needs to go to trial and the jury will decide if these people are state actors. If so, then they are violating every principle of the Constitution.

The removal of Lt. Col. Matthew Lohmeier from the U.S. Space Force this month after he publicly stated his opposition to Marxism and Critical Race Theory is part of a very dangerous new wave of censorship that is transforming the United States into East Germany under the Communists. Speakers’ Corner was the very core of a free society which once stood in contrast to Communism and authoritarian forms of government. This is precisely what these people are resurrecting — the worst of human history.

Twitter Warns Indian Government to “Respect Freedom of Expression” – Beyond The Hypocrisy, Big Tech is Now Telling Global Government What is Permitted Propaganda

Comrade citizens, pay no attention to the blatant propaganda inherent in this latest expression from the almighty Big Tech globalist alliance unit at Twitter.

Ignore the stunning hypocrisy of telling a foreign government to respect the “freedom of expression” from a platform that arbitrarily censors and deletes the “expressions” that do not align with their politics.

Be a good comrade and do not pay attention to the scale of hubris for a company to threaten a foreign government and publicly take the position that Big Tech Twitter is more important and powerful than the billion plus citizens and elected government of a sovereign state.

All your governments are belong to us.  Yes, quite remarkable but completely in-line with their outlook of self-importance.

(New York Post) – Twitter on Thursday said it is worried about the safety of its staff in India and called for the government to respect freedom of expression, days after Indian police visited its office in New Delhi over its labeling of a tweet by a governing party spokesman as “manipulated media.”

Twitter has been involved in a tense battle with the Indian government, which has often asked it to restrict content alleging Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s administration is trying to silence criticism, including of its handling of the coronavirus pandemic.

Twitter said it has “concerns with regards to the use of intimidation tactics by the police” and “the potential threat to freedom of expression for the people we serve.”

India’s IT ministry called Twitter’s statement “totally baseless, false and an attempt to defame India.” It said Twitter should “comply with the laws of the land” instead of “dictating what India’s legal policy framework should be.” (read more)

Lebwrong, Shut Up And Dribble

When a policeman yells, “Stop, or I’ll shoot!,” it’s usually wise to do as he says. Similarly, if a knife-wielding teenage girl is chasing down another girl with a large knife and the intended victim is calling for help, it’s predictable procedure for the officer to yell at the perpetrator to get down on the ground. This was the case for 16 year-old Ma’Khia Bryant.  She refused to get down and was shot and killed. If the police officer had stood by and allowed her to stab her victim, the officer would be called racist for doing nothing.

Damned if you do, damned if you don’t

I don’t like police officers who are abusive, racist, overly-aggressive, militarized, or otherwise violating the Constitution, but people need to realize that they need to obey a cop’s orders in real time. If there is an injustice, it can be sorted out later by lawyers. These days, many don’t seem to understand this. They simply ignore the cops or resist in some way. In the case of police officer Chauvin, he followed police procedure with the resisting counterfeiter and convicted criminal George Floyd, who most likely died due to heart problems and an overdose of Fentanyl.

Like the OJ trial, mob rule took over in the murder trial of Chauvin. Political correctness and fear of what the mob might do has trumped justice. Instead of law and order we have no law and disorder. The mob is now in charge and that mob consists not only of protestors—peaceful or otherwise, but also politicians, Hollywood, and the mass media. They decide through force of opinion the fate of the accused.

Joining the mob is Lebron James, a sports figure. He tweeted out a very threatening message, “You’re next” along with a photo of the police officer who shot the teenager. The tweet was quickly removed. We at GrrrGraphics were banned from Twitter for the crime of being conservative. We never threatened anyone, but since James is ‘woke’ and supports communist China, he gets a break.

Threatening the life of a police officer should be a slam dunk reason to be banned from Twitter. It’s also another reason not to watch the NBA, or any other politicized sport.

Update: Ratings for NBA Finals were down 49%, Get Woke Go Broke…

37 Percent of Polled American Respondents Are Buying Less Coca-Cola Products


Posted originally on the conservative tree house April 22, 2021 | Sundance | 176 Comments

Rasmussen has a poll released today highlighting the corporate risks involved in entering politics.  Coca-Cola now discovering the cost of corporate wokeism as 37% of respondents say they are buying less product during boycott.

Thirty-three percent (33%) of Black adults say they are less likely to buy Coca-Cola because of the company’s involvement in the Georgia election law controversy, as are  35% of White adults and 44% of other non-white adults. As noted by the National Pulse:

[…] Respondents were asked several questions, including, “Is it a good idea or a bad idea for corporations to become involved in political controversies?”

Overall, 62 percent of respondents said that it was a “bad idea,” with only 20 percent saying it was a “good idea,” and 17 percent saying they were “Not sure.”  When asked if they had ever boycotted a company over “political issues,” 52 percent of those polled said “No,” while 41 percent replied “Yes.”

The third and last question on the survey asked: “After the Georgia legislature enacted a new election law requiring voter ID, Coca-Cola was one of the companies that publicly condemned the law. Does that make you more or less likely to purchase Coca-Cola products?”

Over a third of the respondents – 37 percent – said that they were “Less likely” to purchase Coca-Cola products due to the company’s interference. (more)

Perhaps one of the more telling statistics is that 45% of those aged 40 to 64 are boycotting Coke’s corporate wokeism.  This demographic is a key group with the majority of consumer spending power during the peak of their income earning.  Losing 45% of the U.S. market audience is a massive hit, even for a global (multinational) corporation.

The Face of Hate, Tucker Carlson Outlines Maxine Waters Long History of Inciting Political Violence


Posted originally on the Conservative tree house April 20, 2021 | Sundance | 180 Comments

Last night Fox News host Tucker Carlson did a lengthy historical review of California Congresswoman Maxine Waters and how she has requested and supported violence for several decades.  While many people know about Waters’ use of race as a tactic to advance division, the compilation of her support for violence is very disturbing when viewed in total.

Witness Intimidation, Racial Antagonists Throw Blood and Pig Head on Former Residence of Defense Witness in Derek Chauvin Trial


Posted originally on the conservative tree house April 19, 2021 | Sundance | 237 Comments

As the closing arguments of the Derek Chauvin trial wrap up today those who want to advance racial hatred attempt to intimidate a prior defense witness. Former police training officer Barry Brodd  testified for the defense.  His former home in Santa Rosa, California, was attacked Sunday with a pigs head left on the blood-splattered front porch.  Fortunately Mr. Brodd had previously moved away from that location, but the current owner was obviously mortified.

The far-left is once again using every resource to trigger violence and hatred around this case.   Without a doubt the activists inside Obama’s Chicago network are coordinating the effort.  They have been exploiting the death of George Floyd for maximum political value and antagonism from the outset.

CALIFORNIA – A group of as of yet unidentified vandals reportedly threw a bloody severed pigs head on the porch of the former home of a retired California cop who served as a defense witness in the trial of Derek Chauvin, the ex-Minneapolis police officer currently standing trial for the murder of George Floyd.

According to NBC, the current resident of former training officer Barry Brodd’s former home in Santa Rosa found the animal’s head on their blood-splattered front porch around 3 a.m. Saturday morning in what appears to be a case of mistaken identity – or, just stupidity by vandals too dumb to realize that Brodd hadn’t lived at the house for years.

The local police department says it seems the home was targeted because of Brodd’s witness testimony in Chauvin’s trial, in which Brodd likened Floyd’s death to an “accidental death.”  

“That isn’t an incident of deadly force,” Brodd said during the trial, according to the Associated Press. “That’s an incident of an accidental death.”

The unfortunate current resident of Brodd’s old house called the police after seeing multiple suspects, dressed in all black, fleeing the scene. The same group is thought to have soaked a local statue in blood and left a sign reading “Oink Oink” about 45 minutes later. (read more)

Rage, hatred and violence is the mantra of the far-left….

The people behind the coordination of this national division are the same communists who indoctrinated Barack Obama into the Alinsky methods.  It is all one large soup mix of various racial antagonizers in the same pot.  This is what they do…. this is how they drive division.
