Trapped in a topsy-turvy world
Many of these stories are examples of parents that have failed at raising their children to be strong self confident adults who are capable citizens participating in a free society. The sticks and stones idiom has been cast aside and buried deep in the ground decades ago. We are now faced with a generation of immature, juvenile grownups that insist on still receiving a trophy even though they are failures in life. There are people that have been raised completely unable to live in a free constitutional republic. Your article is evidence. A quick story; as I have mentioned my wife works at a major Boston hospital. Last week a nurse mentioned to a person of color that she is a republican. The person of color went to her coordinator and Human Resources saying the nurse was insensitive. The hospital demanded that the nurse write a letter of apology for her insensitivity which she refused to apologize for being a republican. The nurse was forced to resign and no longer has a job.

Very revealing in today's news is Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook doing spin control saying he was just following orders from the government to 'silence vaccine critics' and 'origins of covid counter narratives'. He had the resources to do his own investigation at the time but did not do so. I expect to see a lot more celebrities back track on their support for the dangerous vaccines. Too late for the many killed and debilitated by the jabs.
Three years ago I heard a comedian say he had retorted to his teenage sons' ribbing with the "sticks and stones" rhyme we all know from childhood.
The conversation with his sons devolved into a true argument when they both corrected him, saying the phrase is: "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can REALLY hurt me."
They told him they had been hearing that in school their entire lives.
Two young people I know personally verified hearing the updated phrase repeated by teachers throughout their public school years.
Ponder the difference that one word makes: the correct version instills confidence, but the new version immediately turns you into a victim.
Government schools are a toxin.
Conversely, even if it turns out the city scapegoated Penny for its own dereliction of duty, no one will be held to criminal account. This is a perverse incentive structure. As someone commented: “If he was identifying himself as a female and wearing a dress and eye makeup and did the exact same thing he would be invited to the White House by Biden & Harris.”
What an observation! More like an alarm horn on the local fire station roof.
OMG!!! This is exactly our new reality and worst possible nightmare for your personal safety!!!
This is, of course, all true. It is becoming obvious to more and more Americans who could not see the train approaching but cannot now ignore the roar and shaking ground as it passes.
For the first time in American history the great majority of citizens are all alone politically. We have no one representing us or fighting for us on the playing field, where it matters. We have memes and social media commentary. We have jawboning in congressional hearings, knowing nothing will come of it. On the playing field, where it matters, there is only one team. We are forced to watch as that team runs up and down the field, scoring at will, all to our detriment. It is a non-sensical display of lawless gamesmanship. What is supposed to be the opposing team is in fact on the sidelines. They sometimes seem to walk onto the field but we see that they are just yelling at the referees. The referees will occasionally throw a flag. The next play in an onside kick.
Americans were caught by surprise by all of this. We don’t know what to do, but we should know that it will take more than memes to turn this around.
Thank you, Dr. Malone. You continue to impress with your ability to scour the world for reporting on so many different subjects and find other excellent writers with insightful analysis in context within the dystopian culture in which we now find ourselves. My subscription has been well worth the price.
This article crystallized our current world with such clarity and simplicity that I can share it with my high school kids. Thank you.
Thank you, Ramesh, for alerting me to the letter in defense of Andrew Bridgen written by Jewish scientists, doctors, and researchers.
A few months ago, I published an Open Letter in Commemoration of Clemens Arvay co-signed by Jewish groups condemning the weaponization of “anti-semite” accusations against dissidents like Andrew Bridgen:
• “Requiem for a Smear Victim: Clemens Arvay” (https://margaretannaalice.substack.com/p/requiem-for-a-smear-victim-clemens)
They wrote, in part:
“The anti-semitism cudgel is used as a weapon against critics of government measures. Like any weapon, it causes destruction. Like any weapon, it is a means of oppression and violence. This we do not want!
“Why do we see ourselves in the position of saying, ‘Enough is enough!’? Because the impression is created that it is we, the Jews, who hold the anti-semitism cudgel in our hands. That it is we who want to be protected from the ‘swearers,’ ‘conspiracy theorists,’ ‘Nazis,’ and ‘right-wing radicals.’ That we were the ones who supposedly wanted to be protected from Clemens Arvay.”
I know the signatories of this letter would appreciate this being shared as widely as possible as this strategy not only drove the gentle Clemens Arvay to suicide but also continues to be wielded against some of our most powerful voices, including:
• “Profiles in Courage: Prof. Dr. Sucharit Bhakdi” (https://margaretannaalice.substack.com/p/profiles-in-courage-prof-dr-sucharit)
• “Political Satirist (me) Under Criminal Investigation in Berlin” (https://cjhopkins.substack.com/p/political-satirist-ie-me-under-criminal)
Today's young people are pawns in the hands of the totalitarians They want everything to be exactly as they think they want it. Although they seem to be powerful, they really are completely powerless. Ironically, if they don't wake up soon, they wind up in a world where they will be told exactly what to say, what to do and what to think every minute of every day.
I was just considering The Lord's Prayer and the part where it goes "...forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us" and trying to reconcile that with what goes on in politics these days.
We have one group of politicians, the Democrats, who are practicing selective forgiveness of anyone and everyone who will in turn forgive them for all their wrongs. They will absolve you of responsibility for your trespasses, so long as you are on their team and have trespassed against those on the opposing team. This revelation brings new meaning to the word – ‘demigod’.
It's so ironic that those are the ones who have the "coexist" bumper stickers on their cars but are completely intolerant of people with traditional beliefs.
It’s beginning to look like Christians and their basic concept of forgiveness are being abused and taken advantage of. I'm beginning to think that we are misapplying our prayer. It's one thing to have a double standard with regard to law and quite another when it comes to Faith. Are we trying to play God when we forgive the anti-American and anti-Christian activities of Democrats and their ilk?
I think we are on the verge of having a mass formation epiphany.
The question we must ask ourselves is what is working to combat these attacks on the truth? One can only judge this from observing different groups of young adults and kids. Historically, educated kids would embrace truth but no longer. The only group of young adults and kids where truth still permeates them are Bible taught fundamentalist raised young adults. This might offend sensibilities but it is the truth and what is working. Get your grandkids into church, now!
In early America, civil disorder was met with a day or two or three in the town square stocks. A hard bench with arms in chains no food and the jeers of citizens. I suggest we bring this back. Go directly from shouting obscenities to the stocks for an overnight stay. I bet civil protests would immediately reappear.
Morning all. Tucker Twitter post on a forgotten word. Taboo.
Having in mind former New Zealand Prime minister Ardern winning a price for guiding the country out of the Pandemic, how long before there’s a Nobel Price for the genuine transgender, drag queen? Fake news opportunist or the censorship ghostbuster?
People who are “lost” have no compass to guide them. They wander around trying to find purpose in life. These are the people jumping on the bandwagon . Fighting for the “underdog” . Or should I say their blurred vision of the underdog.
You get a bunch of these lost souls together and you have your crazies fighting for a cause.
Then you get the deep state feeding these lost souls more propaganda and they feed on it.
Then you have people who put their head in the sand. They just follow the crowd . They don’t want to dig in and search for truth. They just want to go to work and come home. They turn on their tv and watch mainstream news and believe everything they hear.
From what I have read, the deep state has been conducting psychological testing through the years on how to carry out this global take over.
