I cleared some tabs in the process (Google Doc):
Glenn Beck, an early owner of Glorious Hat, posted a list on FB of ten new realities in Obama's America. I anticipate more lists as the election season evolves. Lists are good.
9. Black lives matter organizer says it is open season on white people and blacks "need to pick them off one by one." TV networks ignore the threats and praise them, democrats meet with them and talk about their bravery.Fred tells us Why They Hate Us. "They" being the rest of the world. It isn't just the 'ugly American' stereotype that stacks the deck against us, but some permanent perceptions that will likely never change. He leaves out the many positive aspects of America to make his point, including the fact that he can live safely in a foreign country and type out and publish his article using American technologies.
May God forgive us for our apathy, sloth, self imposed ignorance, and arrogance.
My point is not that China is morally superior to the United States. It isn’t. However, if you want to understand why so many countries loathe us, you have to understand how they see us. Whether you agree is irrelevant. Nor does it matter whether their grievances are factual.Francis Porretto explains why he is bored with recent events in his post, Off The Cuff.
Yes, yes, some of that isn’t fair, and an American might ask, for example, how an Arab country, practicing female circumcision and not allowing girls to study, can lecture anyone on morality. I agree. But how they see things determines their attitudes.
I appreciated his comments about the goals of our government schools.
. . . our cycle of birth, growth, maturity, decline, and death is nearing its terminus. There’s nothing for it but to enter “the turd tunnel to oblivion.”
Americans don’t want to believe that this could happen to our own beloved country. No one wants to believe it could happen to his own precious Motherland, Fatherland, or Cis-Questioning But Undecidedly Polymorphous Perverseland. But it can. It’s happening before our eyes. Whether it can be halted is dubious. Even delaying it for a few more decades is open to dispute.
I shouldn’t need to say this, but I must: Watch out for what your kids are being told by others, especially if they’re students in the “public” schools. The schools are indoctrination centers for Postmodern Transnational Morally-Relative All-Cultures-Are-Equally-Valid Government-Uber-Alles poison. Your kids can be turned against you. Indeed, it’s the dearest and most ardently pursued goal of the adversaries of freedom. Don’t let it happen.
