The Curse of Feminized USA Schools and their Gun Problems

Despite the political clap-trap being sold as “freedom”  in today’s American schools, kindergarten through to graduate school, fascism is not yet full blown, but it IS feminized, and it is conquering the American community.

Feminists of all sexes, colors, shape, and sizes are poisoning American education, and therefore. our America!…..They are from and in the mouthy Democratic leftist quadrant of Barack and Hillary where two and two do not necessarily  equal four……Especially if they are NOT IN THE MOOD to make the masses be equal and poor!

The modern  human females,  the today’s Hillary ones drooling and fevered at college, unless taught otherwise, have, at last “become free”!  Unlike the past, they now “own” their feelings.  They go to college, Harvard and Yale, California and Evergreen…..

Yes, Egyptian, Greek, and such MEN of the before and after,  invented arithmetic!

“We are the NEW woman… We can add or subtract, however, whatever  we please without those damned men telling us the answers!”

ELIMINATE THE PAST….BAN HISTORY! the Hillary Clinton act-alikes shout, compose, and write novels, rally at political gatherings, and teach at school!

I attended public schools from kindergarten through high school in St. Paul, Minnesota from 1939 to June, 1952…..Until my senior year when the leftists first began their assault to force everyone to think the same, be equal,  and so, know nothing,  decided to eliminate evaluating student achievement by grades beyond pass-fail.   (The rising fem class at university  thought students would feel better without pressure!  Better yet, the teachers wouldn’t have to know as much in their field of study.)

And then there arrived the mid sixties and the sexual, druggie, Abbie Hoffman  revolution…..where college gals felt and were taught they had as much right to screw as any guy around.

That old JudeoChristian human male was so boring, so wussy; human female so prissy…. without LSD, especially.

JudeoChristians were sent backstage to the new American catacombs, their living rooms, their mothers, their fathers…..but about half of our American ones were taught to turn  to “freedom”…to be free  to be a vulgar, programmed, leftist animal with heap big mouth, and no brain and feel great about voting for Hillary, Barack, and the Socialist from Vermont.

Shootings in schools have excited the vulgar American feminized leftists to the thrill  of blaming the…..the….human American WHITE male animal for its victims.

“THINK OF THE CHILDREN AND THEIR SUFFERINGS THESE WHITE AMERICAN MALE HUNTERS CAUSE WITH THEIR HUNTING  TOYS!  END WAR FOREVER, VOTE DEMOCRAT!”,  the feminist of all sexes, colors, shapes, and sizes shout at their rallies, and write at the New York Times and Washington Post, PBS, MSNBC, NBC, CBS, ABC, and so one!

Why don’t the Washington Post and New York Times, and all the rest of the still remaining newspapers, all lefties from coast to coast, offer the American public statistics of number of deaths by guns have occurred at schools since, let’s say 1875?

Could FEMINIZED  schools, GOD FORBID, BE TO BLAME?…..the disappearance of MOTHERS AT HOME AND NEIGHBORHOOD….like the beautiful ones who used to command the neighborhoods where I was born  and raised…..Or, the disappearance of  the family and school that used to teach decency in the name of God by which THIS NATION, UNDER GOD, WAS ORIGINALLY CREATED!!!!

 

To Know Islam is to Know Muhammad…..or?

To Know Muhammad Is to Know Islam

by Amil Imani   at  American Thinker:

Over fourteen centuries ago rose Muhammad, a supposedly illiterate hired hand of a rich widow, Khadija, claiming he was the bearer of a perfect life prescription from Allah: the Quran.  He claimed that humanity could do no better than to follow its precepts as well as to emulate Muhammad’s own life example for a guarantee of bliss and salvation.  In exchange for this, people had to embrace Islam – surrender – by surrendering their liberty to Muhammad.  Up to this day, the Muslim world considers a perfect Muslim as someone who follows in the footsteps of Muhammad, by action and by deeds.

You have an excellent model in the Messenger of Allah, for all who put their hope in Allah and the Last Day and remember Allah much. (Surat al-Ahzab 21)

To faithful Muslims, the Prophet Muhammad is a role model, and they must follow his Sunnah and learn how to implement its precepts and practices in their lives.  So to understand the Prophet Muhammad is to understand Islam.

Fortunately, for both Muslims and non-Muslims, Muhammad is not around so that we can personally observe his conduct and be tempted to emulate him.  What is possible, however, is to go to authentic Islamic records and discern what Muhammad did during his life and judge it for ourselves.

The absence of Muhammad is fortunate for the Muslims because it enables them to spin many yarns about how virtuous he was.  There are more stories about the kindness, his generosity, his forbearance, and whatnot than any dozen men could do in ten lifetimes.  Muslims, heads in the sand, keep reciting to each other all these made-up tales.

It is fortunate for non-Muslims that we won’t be inclined to do some of things Muhammad did.  Many accounts of his actions, as recorded and reported by reliable, authoritative Muslim sources, would be considered criminal in the civilized societies of today.

Special Hatred for the Jews

Muhammad, for one, was a model of spewing hateful speech, cursing all non-Muslims repeatedly, with special venom reserved for the Jews.  In the Islamic scripture, headed by the Quran, the Jews are cursed and called all kinds of names so many times.

Is it Allah who so despises the Jews, or is it Muhammad?  Either way, it doesn’t make sense.  If it is Allah speaking these derogatory terms in the Quran, then I am shocked.  It is unbecoming of the creator of the universe, the source of all good, to devote so much of his book to cursing a few millions of his own creatures.  Recall that the Quran claims that not even a leaf falls without the permission and decree of Allah.  So why is it that he allows the Jews to behave in ways he condemns?

If it is Muhammad who is angry at the Jews, then it makes sense.  The Jews kept rejecting him and telling him to take his sale pitch somewhere else.  But what doesn’t make sense here is that Muhammad claims that every word of the Quran is that of Allah.  So which is it?

Abusing Women

Islamic records report that Muhammad had numerous wives.  Some even admit that they can’t provide an accurate count because he took wives so often and with great liberty.  A number of his wives were slave women – women taken as booty in battle.  Well, okay.  Maybe he was doing what the Arabs of his time did.  Make war; take everything, including women and children; and treat them exactly the way you would treat your own livestock.  If you found a woman you desired, she was yours.  That simple.

But he also married a child of one of his most senior followers, Ayesha.  The poor child was a nearly six-year-old little girl when he married her, and he consummated the marriage when she was barely nine and he was pushing sixty.  Now, Ayesha was not a slave girl with whom he could take that kind of liberty.  He could not treat her like a piece of property, rightfully his.  She was Abu Bakr’s daughter.  Did Muhammad bamboozle the old Abu Bakr, or did the old Abu-Bakr’s lust for power make him offer his little girl to Muhammad?

Either way, what Muhammad did establish was a shameful and criminal act of marrying little girls as a legitimate practice.  Not long ago, a member of the highest Islamic Council of Saudi Arabia issued a fatwa saying that in Islam, there is no age limit for marrying even infants.  Now, this is the kind of religious sanction that ought to make you cringe.

Other Practices

Just a couple more points here.  Muhammad also declared acceptable killing non-Muslims, plundering their possessions, and taking their women and children as slaves to be held or sold.  He legitimized slavery and even described how slaves should be treated as second- and even possibly third-class chattel.

Muhammad also established what amounts to a modern-day protection racket.  He actively encouraged his followers to attack non-Muslim caravans and habitats, get all the loot they could, give him his cut of 20%, and keep the rest.

But again, if you are the representative of the creator and owner of the universe Allah, everyone must give you a wide berth.  And people did.  It just so happened that men of Muhammad’s time very much liked what he did and preached.  Never mind women.  Women did not count in much of Arabia’s baby, Islam.

Muhammad’s Praiseworthy Acts

Let us set aside these well documented unseemly and even criminal activities and look at some of the good things attributed to Muhammad.

One particular case relates to Muhammad’s trying time in Mecca.  The story is that an old Meccan woman would throw tumbleweeds on Muhammad as he walked by.  In response, Muhammad would speak to her kindly and inquire about her well-being.  This is often cited as an example of how kind and forgiving he was.  Keep in mind that Muhammad was meek in Mecca and had lots of ill wishers and few friends.  He was in no position to retaliate in kind to any abuse he was subjected to.

Once out of Mecca and in power in Medina, Muhammad hardly bothered inquiring about the well-being of old women.  He did treat his friends – his followers – kindly.  But he showed absolutely no mercy to his enemies.  He had his enemies – anyone and everyone who did not fall into his fold – treated by the sword.

A Muslim’s surrender of liberty is not merely a matter of personal choice.  Muslims abandon their most precious rights and are out to make all non-Muslims do so, too, by hook or crook.

In short: I, for one, would hardly want to take Muhammad as my exemplar and emulate him.

Hero Challenges Today’s Leftist Enslavement of Black Americans

THE REBELLION SPREADS

 

by John Hinderaker  at PowerLine:

This righteous Twitter rant was retweeted by Candace Owens. I have no idea who this guy is, but he endorses Kanye West’s call for blacks to think for themselves. He is wearing a “MAGA” hat and he understands where the real genocide is taking place. And while he has problems, he is sane enough to realize that being a slave is not one of them.

Warning: Really, really bad language. But this guy is smart and his message is sound:

HAPPY 160th BIRTHDAY, MINNESOTA!

ADMISSION OF MINNESOTA INTO THE UNION 1858


Acceptance by Congress is the final act in the process of being admitted as a state. A bill for the admission of Minnesota into the Union was submitted to Congress in December of 1857.

The bill for admission encountered several obstacles. The Minnesota bill was coupled with the bill for the admission of Kansas. It was customary to admit states in pairs to preserve the balance of power in Congress:  a state that permitted slavery would be linked with a state that prohibited slavery. Minnesota was to be a free state, Kansas a slave state. The proposal to admit Kansas was made under its fraudulent Lecompton constitution. The fraud in the adoption of the Kansas constitution was so glaring that admission under it was abandoned, delaying the Minnesota bill for several months. Minnesota’s bill also met with general opposition from congressmen from southern slave states.

On May 11, 1858, the bill for the admission of Minnesota was passed by Congress and approved by President James Buchanan. However, word of its passage did not reach St. Paul until almost two weeks later. Minnesota had no telegraph lines or railroads, so a telegram was sent to Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin, and carried up the Mississippi River to St. Paul by steamboat. On May 24, 1858, the state officers took their oaths of office and Minnesota’s state government began to function.

This ended the long trek toward statehood, which had seen the area of the state of Minnesota under four nations: France, Spain, Great Britain and the United States, and under nine territories: Northwest, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin, Louisiana, Missouri, Iowa, and Minnesota.

The above information is from the State of Minnesota.

I learned  the date of our state’s birthday  in 1942 when I was in the third grade taught by one of the best-in-every-way  school teachers there ever could be,  Mrs. Lucille Jaeger……filled  with knowledge and patience with a special  ability to share both so skillfully with the 40 children in that classroom.   No classmate ever disrupted…..only Brian Humphrey, as I remember, who through up his breakfast all over his desk one morning.   He didn’t have much say in the matter.

Throughout my K through 8th grade at Horace Mann Grade school of St. Paul, Minnesota, school never closed a day of teaching  untowardly, come weather or plague.  Winters were colder then.

We sang God Bless America on Mondays…We pledged allegiance to the flag every day of school…..it was wartime.  Most of my schoolmate fathers had already been sent off to some front or ship.   My dad was 41, and therefore too old to even sign up….However, he became our neigborhood air raid warden leader that Spring of 1942….also the first year of our neighborhood double-lot  Victory Garden, the one  I was chosen to manage.    (I loved being there especially harvesting or dive bombing cucumber beetles with insect poisons.)

I believe Mrs. Jaeger’s husband was killed in battle during the war…….on the Japanese front at Guadalcanal, as I recall.

The Disappearance of Beauty and Inspiration in Today’s Dying America

(I was born to be lucky.   My Mother was German, impatient, and determined to discover and be absorbed by beauty as her drug of choice.    She chose to seek and be  inspired by  beautiful music and landscape gardens.   Handel, Beethoven, Strauss Waltzes led her list of leaving ordinary life for an hour or so when she wasn’t at work.    In our life together before television, she chose me to be her partner in the world of picture puzzle making, one each week every winter for years.   Each magnificent scenery had to be made  of more than 2,000 pieces and every one a picture of a magnificent landscape garden otherwise the effort would be boring.  I have been under the influence ever since, now in my 84th year.)
