Will America’s “Democrat-Marxist” Tiger Sharks Tear the Nation Apart with Their Leftist Lies at School?

The Left’s Sirens Are Already Hinting Our Culture Wars Will End In Another Civil War

..
“The radicalization of the Democratic Party is transforming everything that happens in America into another battle in our unending culture war.

By John Daniel Davidson at realclearpolitics: John Daniel Davidson

Is there anything left in American public life that isn’t an occasion for political rancor and division? NFL games are now nothing more than crude pieces of political theater. On Sunday even Vice President Mike Pence got in on the act, showing up to a Colts-49ers game then leaving after a few players knelt during the national anthem. Next day was Columbus Day, which the cities of Los Angeles and Austin decided this year to replace with “Indigenous Peoples’ Day,” because Christopher Columbus is apparently the new Robert E. Lee. And it’s only Tuesday.

It should be obvious by now that our culture wars will henceforth be constant and unending; the next battle could be triggered by almost anything. Whether it’s the reactions (or non-reactions) of Hollywood celebrities to the unsurprising news of Harvey Weinstein’s sexual misdeeds or the outraged calls for the repeal of the Second Amendment the instant news broke of the Las Vegas massacre, very little can happen in America now without it being an occasion for an appeal to one’s own political tribe. No matter how tawdry or horrifying the news, there is vanishingly little room for solidarity because there is no appetite for it. Not even late-night comedy shows with their shrinking audiences can resist the urge to devolve into partisan political rants.

For all his eagerness to wage the culture wars in his improvised, bombastic style, this didn’t begin with Donald Trump. It didn’t begin with Barack Obama, either, but a recent studyby Pew Research Center found that divisions between Republicans and Democrats on fundamental political values reached record levels during the Obama administration. You don’t need a Pew survey to tell you that, of course, but the data helps illuminate an otherwise vague feeling that American society is coming apart at the seams, and has been for years.

Right and Left Are Moving Farther Apart, And Fast

The Pew study measures responses to issues Pew has been asking about since 1994, things like welfare, race, and immigration. On almost every count, the gaps between Republicans and Democrats held more or less steady up until around 2010, when they began to widen. Today, “Republicans and Democrats are now further apart ideologically than at any point in more than two decades,” with the median Republican more conservative than 97 percent of Democrats and the median Democrat more liberal than 95 percent of Republicans. Here’s what that looks like in a chart:

Pick your issue. On immigration, 84 percent of Democrats say immigrants strengthen the country, while only 42 percent of Republicans say the same. Ten years ago, those percentages were nearly identical. On environmental regulation, 77 percent of Democrats say more regulation is worth the cost, compared to just 36 percent of Republicans. A decade ago, that spread was 67 and 58 percent, respectively. On whether Islam is more likely than other religions to encourage violence, 65 percent of Republicans say it does while 69 percent of Democrats say it doesn’t. When Pew first asked that question in 2002, shortly after the 9/11 attacks, the partisan gap was just 11 points.

Here’s the other notable thing about Pew’s findings. Among the ten questions about political values that Pew has asked since 1994, the partisan gap is much larger than divisions based on demographic differences like age, race, and education. For example, the average partisan gap has increased from 15 to 36 points, whereas 20 years ago the average partisan differences on these issues were “only somewhat wider than differences by religious attendance or educational attainment and about as wide as the differences between blacks and whites (14 points, on average). Today, the party divide is much wider than any of these demographic differences.”

The Pew survey is a rich trove of fascinating survey data, but it mostly confirms what we can all see for ourselves: Americans are sorting themselves into political tribes that have less and less in common. Partisanship has even crept into the online dating scene. Last month the dating website OkCupid announced a partnership with Planned Parenthood that allows users to attach a badge to their profile, the obvious purpose of which is to avoid accidentally going on a date with someone who doesn’t share one’s views on abortion.

Identity Politics Is Poisoning American Civic Life

That brings us to something else that might get lost in the Pew numbers: the median Democratic voter has radicalized much faster than the median Republican voter, and most of this radicalization happened while a Democratic president was in office. That counterintuitive trend points to a larger problem with how the Left in particular understands the American project and our prospects for living together in peace and prosperity. Although it’s true that Republicans have moved further to the right as Democrats have moved further to the left, it’s the leftward slide that should worry us.

For all their shortcomings, conservatives at least have a limiting principle for politics. Most of them believe, for example, in the principles enshrined in the Constitution and maintain that no matter how bad things are, the Bill of Rights is a necessary bulwark, sometimes the only bulwark, against tyranny and violence. In contrast, here’s Timothy Egan of The New York Times arguing unabashedly for the repeal of the Second and Fifth Amendments.

The rapid radicalization of Democrats along these lines follows a ruthless logic about the entire premise of the American constitutional order. If you believe, as progressives increasingly do, that America was founded under false pretenses and built on racial oppression, then why bother conserving it? And why bother trying to compromise with those on the other side, especially if they reject progressives’ unifying theory that America is forever cursed by its original sin of slavery, which nothing can expiate?

Before you scoff, understand that this view of race and America is increasingly mainstream on the American Left. To read someone like Ta-Nehisi Coates, whose recent article in The Atlantic is a manifesto of racial identity politics that argues Trump’s presidency is based on white supremacy, is to realize that progressive elites no longer believe they can share a republic with conservatives, or really anyone with whom they disagree.

Coates has attained near god-like status among progressives with his oracular writings on race and politics, which take for granted the immutability of race and racial animus. So it’s deeply disturbing when he writes, as he does in a new collection of essays, that “should white supremacy fall, the means by which that happens might be unthinkable to those of us bound by present realities and politics.”

What does Coates mean by that? It isn’t hard to guess, and lately Coates isn’t trying too hard to disguise it. In a recent interview with Ezra Klein of Vox, Coates expanded on this idea. Writes Klein:

When he tries to describe the events that would erase America’s wealth gap, that would see the end of white supremacy, his thoughts flicker to the French Revolution, to the executions and the terror. ‘It’s very easy for me to see myself being contemporary with processes that might make for an equal world, more equality, and maybe the complete abolition of race as a construct, and being horrified by the process, maybe even attacking the process. I think these things don’t tend to happen peacefully.’

This is the circuitous, stumbling language of man who knows precisely what he wants to say but isn’t sure if he should come right out and say it. Coates isn’t alone in feinting toward violence as a means—perhaps the only means, if Coates is to be taken at his word—of achieving social justice. On college campuses, progressive activists increasingly don’t even bother mincing words, they just forcibly silence anyone who disagrees with them, as a Black Lives Matter group did recently during an event featuring the American Civil Liberties Union at the College of William and Mary. (Ironically, the talk was supposed to be about students and the First Amendment.)

For a sincere progressive, almost everything that happened in the past is a crime against the present, and the only greatness America can attain is by repudiating its past and shaming—or silencing, if possible—all those who believe preserving our constitutional order is the best way for all of us to get along.

Seen in that light, the radicalization of Democrats is something qualitatively different, and much more dangerous, than the radicalization of Republicans. It means, among other things, that the culture war is now going to encompass everything, and that it will never end….”

Dictating Hate of President Trump from the Leftist Jewish Synagogue

From birth in 1934 to military service in 1956, I lived  in a modest  Christian urban  community more  Roman Catholic than Protestant, with a somewhat wealthier distinct Jewish minority of about ten percent.   All children in our school district attended the same public elementary school, K through eighth grade.

Jewish kids were very “clannish”, as the word was in those days.   They appeared very,  very competitive, energetic,  to achieve good grades, while the rest of us, with a few exceptions,  were quiet and polite.    They also attended a neighborhood Hebrew School two times a week after elementary school classes for a few years.

Throughout my lifetime about 70% of American Jews vote Democrat, the lefty variety over the past twenty years including a worship and advertising of  the  recent antiAmerican President, Barack Hussein Obama and candidate, Hillary Roddham Clinton.

How are their leftist rabbis handling Our Donald thus far in this newer world of American politics at home and abroad?   Please read on:

Gun Control, Civilization, and the TROUBLE WITH WOMEN

I was born in 1934.  I was born male, therefore,  born to be curious.  Nearly every mystery of life possible could stop my minute, my hour, my day.   I wanted to know what, who, and why, but not too swift on  practicing the how  beyond  my two major careers,  school teaching teens and teaching and practicing  landscape garden artistry.

I was born and taught at a time when learning knowledge was vital for country, me, a human  male, and my  future family,  to prepare me for adulthood.

God, family, society, culture, the neighborhood and  the nation depended upon me, when grown up,  to lead my family, my Church, our America to an ever better world.

Until the end of World War II almost all of my school and Sunday school teachers were old maids.  They were in command of their positions then, as not now.  I was profoundly dyslexic, a disorder not known then, which profoundly crippled my ability to read beyond a headline or paragraph.   Instead, unknown to all then,  I luckily commanded vision and memory well.   This confused my teachers.   Many a time they took me aside from second grade through fifth, the War years, placed their right handed fore finger three inches from my face to remind me, and explained:

“Glenn Ray…… THERE ARE TWO REASONS WHY YOU MUST LEARN KNOWLEDGE!!

1. LEARNING KNOWLEDGE WILL MAKE YOU CLOSER TO GOD, FOR GOD KNOWS ALL!   and, 2.  LEARNING KNOWLEDGE WILL HELP YOU MAKE BETTER DECISIONS WHEN YOU VOTE!”…..this, in public school, by the way, GOD BLESS THEM!

These reverent women, most in their fifties, were well prepared to teach knowledge,  for the culture was disciplined.    The dominant male culture then  wouldn’t allow disorder or unlearnedness.   Adult females were caring for family at home and in the neighborhoods.

Today’s hordes of unlearneds, instead, wrestle with their own  children without much knowledge of their own required in  today’s  culture, and  without reverence for learning.     In countless communities in America today,  there is no father around,  nor mothers at home to nurse and guide, and Churchless.

I eventually did learn that the human male animal is born a killer by Nature’s GOD.  When young,  I was told the ancient Greeks claimed:  “There is neither good nor bad……ONLY THINKING MAKES IT SO”.   The human male  fought and sought Truth for centuries.  He, not she, has created the industry and knowings of today.

The human male is born to seek Truth regardless of its degree of discovery.  HE, NOT SHE,  is Nature’s  protector of his offspring, his flock, his tribe, his country.

The human female animal has delivered “the He’s” who have been able to build, defend, and destroy what has been developed for modern human life and death…..and “the She’s” who have continued to bear the species.

The human female animal is born ditsy, however.   Seeking knowledge is not at all her primary drive.  To “the She”  FEELINGS COUNT FIRST over TRUTH!   Safety also dominates Truth, at least in search.

Today, pharmaceuticals are absorbed in America like candy.   America’s  human animals are sold pills and thrills  are good for  health resulting in the rise of  all sorts of sexes, shapes and sizes of dependent people.   Big Business profits from conning its customers by selling health whether good or bad.

Today’s American adults  under age 50  have been made exceptionally uneducated in accumulating truth’s knowledge by  the leftwing educational  establishment from K through graduate school.   Every year a little knowledge becomes ever more dangerous.

Twenty million legal and illegal immigrants invading  from fascistic, corrupt, and poor nations, have settled  in  California over the past decade or so.   They  know nothing about Truth of  our American centuries of struggle to become and remain free of  leftist fascist tyrant rule until now.

Our  American urban black populations have been kept in Leftist Democrat Party stockades of collective ignorance for generations being bribed by the Democrat Party itself!

What does the above have to do with gun laws?    Only ditsies,  mostly  Democrats believe, and believe hysterically,  that its the gun, not people,  that kills and maims people.    Many Republicans also  vote for “however, whatever” is needed to win an election, just to stay in office.

Whatever happened to the Godfearing America of my childhood and youth, those years before the vulgars’ revolt of the late 1960s  and the beginning of the disappearance of American JudeoChristianity?

Skip the ditsy….What must a free America need to do to begin its  rise from its cultural  tar pits the  leftwing has caused now  over the past half century?  Will feminists ever overcome their ditsy disorders?   Will the American family ever be restored, led again by JudeoChristian principles, or is the evil of atheism here to stay?     Can laws stop the lawless?    Do read on below!

Dept of Defense Severs Relations with Marxist, Hate-White Southern Poverty Law Center

DOD DROPS SPLC FROM EXTREMISM TRAINING MATERIALS

by Paul Mirengoff a PowerLine:

“The Daily Caller reports that the Department of Defense has officially severed all ties to the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). The DOD’s Office of Diversity Management and Equal Opportunity, which teaches about racial, gender and religious equality and “pluralism,” had been using SPLC material.

In 2014, the Pentagon told CNS News it would remove information on hate groups provided by the SPLC, but continue to rely on SPLC data. It will no longer do so.

This is good news, though it’s shocking that the DOD has been relying to any degree on the SPLC until now. The SPLC is a powerful left-wing interest group that tags as “hate groups” those with whom it strongly disagrees about matters of public policy. Its abuse of that appellation and the term “extremist” has attained an alarming degree of acceptance.

Mark Pulliam observes that the SPLC has branded Somali-born reformer Ayaan Hirsi Ali an “anti-Muslin extremist” for her opposition to female genital mutilation and other oppressive Islamic practices, and designated the respected Family Research Council as a “hate group” for its opposition to same-sex marriage. In addition, the organization deems mainstream immigration-reform advocates such as the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) and Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) as hate groups. British Muslim activist Maajid Nawaz — regarded by most observers as a human rights leader — is suing the SPLC for listing him as an extremist.

Pulliam laments that the SPLC has “borrowed itself into the civil rights movement, the organized bar, the cloistered culture of large law firms, the education system, and even law enforcement as a champion for ‘the exploited, the powerless and the forgotten.’” The civil rights movement, big law firms, and the education system are probably hopeless cases.

Law enforcement and the Defense Department aren’t. The FBI reportedly has already purged itself of SPLC materials. Now the DOD is joining in.

These are important steps in the process by which SPLC becomes recognized for what it is — an advocate, and a particularly noxious one, not an arbiter.”

Germanic Fascism Alive at Deutche Welle Election Night, Nov. 2016

The United States, Canada, the Queen’s Great Britain, the West  in general establishments, pretend and advertise to be democratic in the languages they speak to themselves and their public.  THEY LIE!

These elitists live in the same leftist closets….one Party, one Thought, one Press….fake news.   They sold their fake news throughout the minutes and hours to the very end and beyond the SHOCK FROM THEIR BIGOTRY….”Something wasn’t measured”.

Do explore that election evening, that popular victory of Our Donald, that November.  Do review the nearly universal fascism reported  as news at CNN, MSNBC, PBS, NBC, CBS, ABC, and abroad in particular CBC, Deutche Welle and its “whitest of counties”, in a country who’s wildest most vile practicing racists  today are black in color, not only in per cent of population but very likely by statistics if TRUTH be told.

Listen to these fascist pundits reviewing the American character who dared to vote for Our Donald as racists….FAKE NEWS, folks.   It took Our Donald and his courage to expose the LEFTIST PARTY COLLEGE “EDUCATED” think alikes  who don’t work for a living, have no interest or ability to seek truth, but enjoy and protect their cultural status!  Please view the following for starters:

Klobuchar and Franken Block Minnesota’s David Stras to the U.S. Court of Appeals

KLOBUCHAR’S IMPOSTURE

by Scott Johnson  at PowerLine:

Minnesota Senators Amy Klobuchar and Al Franken are blocking the Senate from taking up President Trump’s nomination of David Stras to the United States Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit. Stras is a justice of the Minnesota Supreme Court; he is widely respected. His nomination is opposed by approximately no one, not even by Klobuchar or Franken. Yet they have withheld their blue slips to prevent the Senate Judiciary Committee from acting on the nomination.

Senator Klobuchar is using the Stras nomination for narrow partisan purposes. She seeks to have a hand in the appointment of Democrats to four federal vacancies in Minnesota: United States Marshal, United States Attorney and two federal district court judgeships. Klobuchar and Franken actually convened a panel of attorneys to recommend a nominee for United States Attorney. I believe that Klobuchar supports the appointment of Democrat Joe Dixon for United States Attorney. Neither Klobuchar nor Dixon has responded to my request for comment since I first reported this three weeks ago.

Klobuchar is negotiating with the White House over Minnesota’s federal vacancies. Her role in this scenario shows her to be a partisan player. She doesn’t talk about it and her friends at the Star Tribune have left the story alone since July 8.

Appearing at the Minnesota State Fair yesterday and sitting for an interview with Minnesota Public Radio, Klobuchar was asked about the Stras nomination. The interview generated an AP story by Kyle Potter (posted at the link along with the audio of Klobuchar’s MPR interview) that also made it into the Star Tribune.

Klobuchar denied that she’s blocking Stras’s nomination. That’s what she said, anyway. This is a lie. Klobuchar is blocking the nomination pending a deal with the White House that has nothing to do with the merits of the nomination of Justice Stras. Klobuchar referred to the pending federal vacancies and to discussions with the Department of Justice as well as the White House counsel’s office without acknowledging that she is holding her blue slip on Justice Stras in connection with these discussions.

Franken asserts that he’s still reviewing Justice Stras’s “lengthy record.” Justice Stras is a young man. His record can be mastered without an exorbitant expenditure of time. If only Franken hadn’t spent so much time promoting his new book — he even took a turn hosting SiriusXM’s Grateful Dead channel for a day — he’d be done by now. But this is not to be taken seriously. It’s a joke, so to speak, of the unfunny political variety that Senator Franken now retails.

The editors of the the Star Tribune editorial page do not encourage op-ed columns that break local news the Star Tribune itself hasn’t gotten around to reporting. Today, however, they let Third District Rep. Erik Paulsen report that Klobuchar and Franken have in fact blocked the Senate from taking up Stras’s nomination. Rep. Paulsen tells the story in “Klobuchar, Franken impede the path of an outstanding judge.” It’s a good and even important column on the merits of the Stras nomination. Please read it all.

Rep. Paulsen omits elaboration of Klobuchar’s game here (he leaves it at “partisan game-playing in Washington”). Senator Klobuchar is sensitive about it. No one involved wants to ruffle her feathers. I sympathize, but let’s get the full story out.

Ditsy Judge Howell Okays Democrat Mueller’s Move to Disrupt President Trump’s Presidency

MORE ON THE LEFTIST JUDGE WHO APPROVED MUELLER’S GRAND JURY

by Paul Mirengoff at PowerLine:

Beryl Howell is the judge who signed off on Robert Mueller’s request to convene a Washington, D.C. grand jury, and who apparently will continue to “umpire” disputes over the grand jury’s work (which, in reality, is Mueller’s work). As I discussed earlier today, Howell served for ten years as a staffer for Sen. Patrick Leahy, the hyper-partisan leftist.

An unnamed Washington lobbyist assured the Daily Beast that Judge Howell has been a”very straight-arrow as a judge.” He compared her to Robert Mueller — the quintessential alleged straight shooter, now that James Comey has been discredited.

If you’re a conservative and you hear a pillar of the Washington legal community described as a straight shooter, your best response is to duck.

With this in mind, let’s look at a few of the things I’ve learned today about Beryl Howell’s actions as a federal judge. I’ll exclude rumors unless and until they are corroborated.

Item: Judge Howell presided over a trial in which left-wing talk show host Ed Schultz was sued by a sound engineer for breach of an alleged partnership agreement. According to the Daily Caller, Howell showed blatant favoritism for Schultz and contempt for the plaintiff’s lead lawyer.

If so, it might have been because she ruled for Schultz in the first trial only to be reversed on appeal. In any event, one trial watcher reportedly expressed concern that Howell’s behavior would taint the jury’s ability to be fair, especially the impressionable younger jurors who may be influenced by her obvious hatred for the plaintiff’s lawyer.

Plaintiff did lose the case on retrial. In the appeal of that case, plaintiff argued, among things, that Judge Howell belittled plaintiff’s counsel as a Jacksonville, Florida attorney who does not understand the “highly educated, experienced, professional people [of] Washington, D.C.” According to the Daily Caller, Schultz’s lawyers acknowledged that Howell’s comments were “stern” (very probably a euphemism) but not grounds for reversal.

If the picture the Daily Caller paints is even close to accurate, Judge Howell is not a straight shooter.

Item: According to this report from PJ Media, Judge Howell left out the words “so help me God” from a naturalization ceremony. These words are part of the oath prescribed by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.

Title 8 of the Code of Federal Regulations provides for a religious exemption from saying “so help me God.” When a petitioner or applicant for naturalization, by reason of religious training and belief (or individual interpretation thereof), or for other reasons of good conscience, cannot utter this phrase, the words “solemnly affirm” shall be substituted, and the oath shall be taken in such modified form.

However, again according to PJ Media, Judge Howell did use the words “solemnly affirm” either. If she was going to exclude God, she should at least have used the alternative expression of solemnity.

Item: Speaking of immigrants, according to the same PJ Media article, Judge Howell rejected a challenge to Obama’s executive actions that would have provided work permits to undocumented immigrants who met certain requirements. As we all know, the Supreme Court later blocked this blatantly illegal order from taking effect.

Judge Howell’s ruling strongly suggests that, for her, left-wing ideology trumps law.

Item: Judge Howell sided with a liberal law professor who sued to obtain records regarding fences the federal government intends to build along portions of the Texas-Mexico border. “Revealing the identities of landowners in the wall’s planned construction site may shed light on the impact of indigenous communities, the disparate impact on lower-income minority communities, and the practices of private contractors,” she wrote (opinion here).

This ruling was clearly a victory for liberals, who have taken all kinds of actions to block implementation of the federal law requiring the building of fencing. This doesn’t mean Judge Howell’s ruling was wrong. Although the quotation above from Judge Howell seems lame, the issue is fairly complicated, and I haven’t had time to do the analysis necessary to reach a conclusion. However, I think it’s worth bringing the case to the attention of readers who are trying to get a handle on the judge who finds herself in a position, potentially, to do great harm to the U.S. president.

Such a judge needs to be a true straight shooter, not a Washington-issue one. Judge Howell does not even come across as the latter kind. She appears to be a doctrinaire liberal, just as one would expect a former Leahy staffer to be.

I live in the Washington, D.C. area. I know plenty of people around here who aren’t nearly as leftist this judge appears to be, but who despise President Trump. There’s a good chance Judge Howell relishes the chance to stick it to him.
