Today I discuss a bill that is being proposed in Kentucky, by a Republican, which will make it a crime, a Class B misdemeanor, if they (protesters or rioters), “accost, insult, taunt, or challenge a law enforcement officer with offensive or derisive words, or by gestures or other physical contact, that would have a direct tendency to provoke a violent response from the perspective of a reasonable and prudent person.”
Well isn’t that vague and ridiculous, lumping in words with violent acts. How convenient. And isn’t it always the way. Bad policy always begins with well-meaning Republicans, unable to comprehend the slippery slope they put us on, as not-well-meaning leftists eventually get a hold of it. read more
There is an idea or saying called Six Degrees of Separation, where all people on average are six, or fewer, social connections away from each other. A derivative of this is a game, called Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon, where you choose 6 celebrities, and through a similar process, all roads lead to Kevin Bacon. I’ve never tried it, but I understand it does work.
However, the left is more apt to play Six Degrees of Racism, where they choose six political or current event topics (one and the same for leftists), and eventually all roads will lead back to racism.
To the casual observer, this may seem incongruous, but as racism is a leftist’s go-to, can’t-fail play, it is logical that every thought or emotion will lead back to racism.
The Daily Wire has chronicled another such example.

Illinois ‘Anti-Racist’ Training: Expecting People Of Color To Teach White People Is ‘Covert White Supremacy’
In January of this this year I posted a piece on World Net Daily explaining how I was not at all convinced that new strains of COVID-19 even existed.
I expressed it as just another excuse to keep us masked-up and locked down.
Can you blame any of us for being, at the very least, skeptical, “after all the misstatements, half-truths and outright lies we’ve been fed, not only scientifically and medically, but politically, in regards to the election, I’m finding it increasing difficult to believe that a new, mutated strain of the virus has been discovered, just as the vaccine is being widely distributed.” read more
This is terrific and long overdue. States are finally getting smart – seeing the light, as it were. Red States are beginning to act like Red States – like free States again.
Finally following the lead of States like South Dakota and Florida, Governor Gregg Abbott has decided to once again be an intelligent conservative and open the State of Texas up completely. No more Covid restrictions. And worse, he’s has the audacity to allow individuals and businesses to decide if they wish to continue mask wearing and distancing – all on their own. Imagine that.
This, more than anything, will outrage the collectivist, one-size-fits-all left.
Mississippi soon followed the Texas directive declaring their State “free” again. Hopefully, many more Red States will follow. read more
Like the seamless transfer of Power, so shall there be a seamless transfer of crisis.
I recently had a rather enlightening discussion with a neighbor regarding Covid lockdowns and mask-ups.
She said, “If I have to wear a mask to keep others safe, I’ll do it. It’s a small price to pay.” I then asked how long she would be willing to do this. Her answer: “For as long as it takes. It’s not a big deal.”
She knows I disagree. She knows I don’t wear a mask, but thinks I do so out of some rebel-without-a-cause mentality.
I explained that she is looking at this issue more through a micro-lens, while I instead am just trying to see the big picture. read more
What will happen down the road a piece to those who simply refuse the COVID vaccine? Will they be allowed to continue to be productive members of society? Or maybe they will be forced to wear a colorful pin with the initials, “NV” for no vaccine, or “not vaccinated.” You know, akin to the yellow Star of David patch the German Jews were forced to wear.
Will the authorities allow this to occur, the NVs commingling with the vaccinated faithful?
What of those who simply don’t buy into the mask mandates? Will these heretical, non-conformist science “deniers” be permitted to coexist with the vast majority of masked-up, true American patriots?
Your Kids Would Be Better Off Feral Than Going To Schools That Make Them Anti-American Racists
Critical Race Theory in a Nutshell
State-sponsored instruction that makes your child a dogmatic racist relativist is not worth any benefit you feel schools give in return. Not a single one. Being Mowgli would be better.
To obtain or keep teaching licenses, Illinois now requires all K-12 teachers to indoctrinate their students in critical race theory, destructive lies about sex and gender, and other leftist mind poison. The rules clearly communicate that in Illinois public schools are no longer places to learn, but places children will be lied to, manipulated, and warehoused as wards of a corrupt and malevolent state. And this kind of schooling is spreading nationwide.
Every decent parent, family, and church should refuse to allow this kind of instruction to be inflicted upon the children in their care, and assume personal responsibility for securing their genuine education outside such anti-public schools. Those who do not are abdicating their sacred duty to teach their children to love and know the truth.
The new Illinois rules require teachers to demonstrate that they “embrace and encourage progressive viewpoints and perspectives.” It clearly specifies that these include incorporating into all their teaching and curricula neo-Marxist falsehoods about race and sex, and actively discriminate based on religion, viewpoint, and race. The rules require teachers to:
Directly oppose and undermine the concept of objective truth: “Understand and value… that there is not one ‘correct’ way of doing or understanding something, and that what is seen as ‘correct’ is most often based on our lived experiences.” This is an exercise in forcing people to affirm two contradictory things, as the rest of the requirements are extremely dogmatic, not open to any other “way of doing or understanding something.”
Treat themselves and students as a determined product of their race, sex, and sexual behavior: “Recognize how their identity (race/ethnicity, national origin, language, sex and gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, physical/developmental/emotional ability, socioeconomic class, religion, etc.) affects their perspectives and beliefs about pedagogy and students.”
There are a couple of sayings (at least) that are oft repeated, but bear repeating yet again. No matter how “woke” you think you are, you will never be woke enough, and, leftists will always invent something to fight against – they must always have an antagonist boogeymen.
And the following article from Daily Wire / Conservative Review proves both points once again.
It’s not bad enough that some retail outlets like Target began the policy of men dressed as women being able to use the ladies/girls in-store restrooms and changing rooms. No, now, in California, legislation has been proposed that not only forces retailers to designate “gender-free” shopping areas for children – toys, clothes, etc. – but proposes fining those non-conforming retailers.
Is it wrong to pray that California breaks off from the other contiguous 47 and floats out into the Pacific? read more
Let me just say that the present White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki gives me the willies. I just find her incredibly snarky and off-putting. And unlike her predecessor, Kayleigh McEnany, thus far Psaki , as far as I’ve seen, hasn’t giving a single, honest, straightforward answer to any question that wasn’t a served-up softball by the sycophantic leftist press.
This time was no exception, as Peter Doocy at Fox News, somehow got to ask a question as to why, after all the left’s wailing and gnashing of teeth accusing Trump of forcing illegal alien “babies in cages,” the Biden administration is reopening the same facility to, “put kids in cages.”
Kudos to Peter Doocy for calling out the hypocrites. But don’t expect a straight answer from Ms. Psaki. read more
