The Right is Afraid to Speak Up

from the American Spectator:

More Evidence That Trump’s Silent Majority Is Real

When President Trump insisted last month that his supporters included a substantial silent majority that isn’t represented in the polls, the Democrats and the corporate media devoted a surprisingly large amount of energy to “debunking” the claim. Indeed, their reaction was so shrill and ubiquitous that they seemed, to paraphrase Hamlet’s hapless mother, to be protesting too much.

A new poll released Wednesday by the Cato Institute suggests a reason for this frantic reaction to Trump’s assertion. The survey of 2,000 Americans 18 years of age and older unambiguously indicates that the reluctance of moderates and conservatives to share their political views has increased significantly since 2017. read more

Another Milestone for SpaceX

Using a ship out at sea to catch pieces of falling pieces of rocket might not be the most sophisticated of SpaceX’s recovery techniques, but it is a key part of its mission to recycle as many materials as possible. The company has today ticked off this significant milestone, after its Falcon 9 rocket successfully launched a satellite into orbit for South Korea. read more

Teacher Gets Fired over Support for Trump

Imagine being fired from your job over a lousy tweet.

Did you tweet your undying love and support for mass killing? Did you tweet your hatred of the Black Lives Matter movement.

Nope – none of the above.

Michigan High school social studies teacher and coach Justin Kucera was on with Glenn Beck to explain his capital and fireable offense. He tweeted his support for President Trump, by simply stating, “I’m done being silent – Trump is our President.” That’s it, but evidently enough for the leftist academia.

But that wasn’t really why, according to Beck. He postulates that Kucera was actually fired for daring to speak up and speak out. And that won’t fly with the shut-um down leftist mob. Beck is correct.

Now being ‘Healthy’ equals White Supremacy

Have you ever known anyone you think just can’t be happy unless they are complaining about something?

Well here ya go!

from the American Spectator:

‘Healthy’ Is Now Racist

How “woke” are you? No matter how attuned you may be to social-justice ideology, you’re probably not as woke as Maxine Ali. She is the kind of young feminist who spells “women” as womxn while slinging around academic jargon about “normative gender binaries.” Ms. Ali does most of her “activism” on her Instagram account, which, until a few years ago, was a typical sort of “influencer” account about food and exercise. But that was before Ms. Ali got herself a master’s degree from King’s College London, where critical theory is a central component of the curriculum. Critical theory is to cultural Marxism what a hammer is to carpentry; Ms. Ali is now qualified to identify systemic oppression wherever it may be found, which is to say, everywhere.

“The social construction of the ‘healthy’ body promotes norms that preserve white supremacy,” Ms. Ali proclaimed last month in an Instagram post, which detailed at length how BIPOC (black, indigenous, people of color) are oppressed by the “white normativity” involved in “discourses of health”:

When people talk about health and refer to a “healthy body,” Whiteness is often assumed because it is what we have always seen in visual representations and performances of health.…

The prevailing dietary and lifestyle practices that constitute “healthy living” glorify White middle-class standards of food consumption and living as the singularly correct standard. Within this is also an inferentially racist logic that only by embodying White norms, and by downplaying ethnic difference, can BIPOC achieve a state of health and success.

White dominance is bolstered by healthism. The strategy of charging individuals with a moral duty to stay well obscures the effects of structural racism that underpin society and produce health inequity.

Discourses of health function to re-secure white privilege. The conflation of the thin, white “healthy” body with beauty, morality and desirability aims to preserve racial hierarchies. Health discourses position Whiteness as “good” and “pure,” whilst simultaneously devaluing Brown and Black bodies and framing them as “bad,” deviant and pathological.

We cannot use the term “health” uncritically. We cannot have conversations about Wellness without acknowledging how its structures and performances facilitate the exclusion, marginalisation and harm of BIPOC. It’s time to call it out. [Emphasis added.]

Mr. President – No Federal Troops in American Cities

by: Brent Smith

The York Times writes that President Trump plans to expand the use of “federal troops” from not just Portland, Or., but also other cities like Chicago, maybe Philadelphia, New York City and Detroit.

“Governors and other officials reacted angrily to the president’s move, calling it an election-year ploy as they squared off over crime, civil liberties and local control that has spread from Portland, Ore., across the country,” the Times bloviated.

An election year ploy? This whole Marxist driven mess is nothing more than an election year ploy.

Let me remind you who is driving this train. The bogus Black Lives Matter movement and their bankroll of $1.6 billion and counting.

You read that right.

And how do I know it’s an election year ploy by the BLM? read more
