Does Marxism by any other name smell as bad?
A note (which has now been placed in the website version): this quote is evidently not from Voltaire. The “fact-checkers” are attributing the quote to “white nationalist Kevin Alfred Strom”, (who they also point out was convicted of child porn) but the truth is - this is not his quote either. What he said in a 1993 broadcast was:
”To determine the true rulers of any society, all you must do is ask yourself this question: Who is it that I am not permitted to criticize?”
So, let again review:
Who are we not allowed to criticize? Those who rule over us. The implication that a government is “ruling” over us - is not well tolerated. Hence, the electric fence around this topic. Proving that this phrase- whoever did or didn’t first say it, made the "fact-checkers” behave exactly in the fashion that one would expect. Someone, probably our government, paid money for the major fact-checkers, such as Reuters, to attack this silly meme.
The question is, why? Even though it is clear that Kevin Strom did not say that quote, but something similar THIRTY years ago, it was in the ruling classes’ interest to attribute it to him. To dirty the idea that there is a ruling class. To attach that idea to white nationalism and child porn, which are horrible things. Because that is how our government plays the propaganda game. By linking a public uprising to topics that are illegal or unpalatable. Never forget - Fifth-gen warfare is a dirty war that our government has been using for a long time.
I love This is my Pride Flag! Also the difference of opinion. Thanks for the funnies!
Then after “Animals with Misleading Names,” we can do “Government Agencies and NGO’s with Misleading Names.”
Happy Sunday! May today be a day of blessing as we thank God for His mercy, love, grace and provision. Pray for wisdom, discernment, a tender heart and the ability to see others as God sees them.
Still over the target Robert, appreciate your hard work.
I think this whole trans movement is part of the effort to remove "toxic masculinity" from our men. I say: "Let men be men!! Let them build bridges, skyscrapers, computers, and let them use guns to protect us!"
Fathers: stay with your children, and teach your boys to be men.
As always, all on point! My favs The flag I have pride in and the happy animals clapping (poor snake).
Looks like another nice day from here. Have a happy one! Lotsa positive thoughts to you and your flocks :) Bestest + ♡♡
The funnies this week knock the ball out of the park. As a old maid prude, I laughed so hard at JP Sears’ interview, I fell off my chair. I’m still laughing 😂.
Note about the crocodile meme:
Version 1: Crocodiles do not go in the water it is unsafe for you and we protect our predators with signage (like baby clothes with pride / queer messages)
Version 2: Crocodiles, do not go in the water. People and other eatable life forms, there are predators here that will happily eat you. This sign is free speech information you may chose to use.
The second amendment👍. Off the beaten path. Our world is an amazing place filled with life, new beginnings, the change of seasons from spring to summer... But as in all of peoples lives there also are things that come to an end. It may be a job, a relationship, a pandemic, or life itself. In my business one of the most important issues when building is scale. Imagine our world as an atom that has a nucleus (the sun) and we are beings standing on an electron (the earth). Could our world be scaled down to an atom flying through this universe on a tail above a large dogs ass? This is a possibility with our time based on the orbit around the nucleus being relative only to us. As to the scale of time, our lives may be as short as the May fly in comparison to other worlds or other atoms. But I digress. One definite accepted theory of science is that energy never dies. It can neither be created nor destroyed. But when a person dies what happens to that persons energy? Our bodies may die but as Einstein said, that means nothing, our consciousness continues to exist. When people on earth, good or bad, get to that point of death, and their is a judgement of one’s life, does one’s life energy propel that soul to the next world? If so should those who have lived a good life be conveyed to heaven, while the energy of the evil propel their soul to hell? These are questions and thoughts you may digest with your breakfast. Hope you all have a productive Sunday and summer. J.Goodrich
The first 5 minutes or so of this episode of the Andrew klavan show from this week, about Disney and Uganda, has me laughing out loud, y’all might like it too
“Here’s to All the People with Different Opinions” is a much-needed message for all and reminds me of this Thomas Merton quote:
“When I criticize a system, they think I criticize them—and that is of course because they fully accept the system and identify themselves with it.” (h/t Micky Z. @ https://mickeyz.substack.com/p/hello-is-it-meme-youre-looking-for)
Robert, you may want to remove the Voltaire meme as that is being used to smear people who cite it since it appears to originate from White Nationalist Kevin Alfred Strom:
It is still a valid sentiment, but, as usual, the propagandists are coyly conflating it with “anti-semitism” as a way of suppressing criticism of the rulers, just as castigation of George Soros is ludicrously deemed “anti-semitic”—a perfect shield for the philanthropaths.
Bumpersticker seen in my old university city neighborhood: “Bernie can’t be bought by a Billionaire!” My response: “After the second or third place on Lake Champlain Bernie is wholly owned and they aren’t selling!”
A side note: Several decades ago when I was last in Burlington on Lake Champlain I observed the kind of lake bottom plant life that only thrives on abundant nutrients also known as raw sewage. Unless they have done a lot of expensive mitigation recently too many of those lake front mansions have a short pipe directly into the lake!
Here @ TARGET....We are a proud sponsor of luring the unsuspected into our closets every day.
We never close the doors to opportunity for change! We're just like a Rainbow after the Rain.
“To attach that idea to white nationalism and child porn, which are horrible things.”
One of those is a horrible thing. The other is PR generated label crafted with the message that it is not ok to be white and not ok to be patriotic. Now they want you to associate “white nationalist” with “white supremacy” or racism (if we even know with that is any more after years of racist everything). And if he was those things, then yes, that is two horrible things.
But the opposite of nationalism is globalism, not “butterflies and rainbows”. And the powers that want to rule the world are surely behind this PR slight of hand. You of all people should know about the dangers of these labels designed to squash debate and control the free thinkers; anti-vaxxer, science-denier, conspiracy theorist, climate denier.
I noticed I am not allowed to comment on content I have NOT paid to view..
I never paid attention to this, until today.
