The anger and frustration directed at the Anchorage Assembly is 100% their fault. We all got along just fine talking about tax caps and road construction until the far-leftist Assembly members ramped up their radical activism.

Since then, conservatives and genuine liberals have attempted to reason with the Assembly through public testimony only to get steam rolled – occasionally to actual sneers from some Assembly members.

People can only tolerate this treatment for so long. It is time for these Assembly members to back off their ideological attacks on area residents and listen to the people they are attempting to suppress.

In the meantime, if anyone thinks we can use politically correct language or images to fight maddened leftists, they are mistaken. The left is infamous for historically weaponizing the English language against their enemies (in this case American conservatives). You cannot counter them using only their approved words or gestures. You’ll lose every time.

The least we can do is begin to speak boldly and honestly. It is time to send a message to those who want to divide and scapegoat us. We will not comply with their madness.

If you violate their acceptable PC standards, they will label you a Nazi or xenophobe simply for wanting a legitimate national border. They’ll call you a homophobe if you disagree with any planks from their radical LGBTQ ideology.

Back in September, for example, some Assembly members condemned the yellow stars worn by members of the public at an Assembly meeting. Just a few months earlier, however, leftist Assemblyman Christopher Constant freely insinuated that a local rabbi is akin to a Nazi for wanting to clean up the homeless problem in his neighborhood. Do not fall for their game.

Those yellow stars were meant to remind the Assembly that creating two classes of people with different rights and privileges – the vaxxed and the unvaxxed – is a form of scapegoating and oppression. It is precisely the initial scapegoating of Jews which laid the groundwork for Hitler’s extermination camps.

To Assembly members who assert that this historical reference is “offensive,” I would remind them that history belongs to us all. Millions of Jews were killed in World War II, as were members of just about every family in the Western World in liberating Western Europe and East Asia. Everyone has skin in the game when it comes to safeguarding liberty.

Americans know an injustice when they see one. And I will stand with those being ostracized from society.

Modern methods of scapegoating may differ from the past, but they should not be ignored. Regularly overlooked by the far left is the fact that despotism by authoritarian regimes often begins by scapegoating those deemed unclean or undesirable.

Another way the left controls language (and thought) is by weaponizing scientific terminology. The so-called “party of science” now tells us that men can have babies, that “chest feeding” and “gender fluidity” are a reality, that boys can be girls and girls can be boys, and that there are some 58 different genders and counting.

Extremists on the far left recently intimidated the Journal of American Medicine Association (JAMA) into calling mothers “birthing people” so as not to offend transgender language fascists.

None of this is rooted in science, which draws into question the “science” of their ever-changing COVID mandates.

I do not trust the Assembly when they tell me they merely “follow the science.” Historically, science may support many different views on a subject. This is especially true with COVID.

It’s time to speak plainly – the unvaccinated and other non-compliers are a thorn in the side of the left as they attempt to create two classes of people – the acceptable who can show vaccine passports, and the demonized and ostracized who decline the jab.

Americans know an injustice when they see one. And I will stand with those being ostracized from society.

The next time the left tries to silence opposition for being too “divisive,” remind them of what their own U.S. Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-California) said about people who disagree with her: “when you see these people [Republican politicians] at a restaurant or when you see them at a gasoline station, you make a crowd, you push back on them and tell them they are not welcome.”

It’s just “passion” when the left does it, but conservatives are deemed “divisive” or worse for simply speaking out against injustices.

Too many have died for our right to free speech. The least we can do is begin to speak boldly and honestly. It is time to send a message to those who want to divide and scapegoat us. We will not comply with their madness.

    Woke U.S. Military Recruiting Ads
    By Douglas R. Satterfield | October 25, 2021
    [October 25, 2021] Several months ago, the U.S. Army and Russia came out each with radically different military recruiting ads. The contrast is telling.
    In the new U.S. army ad, begins with
    “… a little girl raised by two moms,” the narrator says, “Although I had a fairly typical childhood, took ballet, played violin, I also marched for equity. I like to think I’ve been defending freedom from an early age.”1 When I heard this, I nearly threw up my breakfast. You don’t defend anything by playing a violin or marching in a parade. See it here.
    The Russian military ad takes a serious tone.
    I have no idea what they are saying but you don’t need to know. Just watch the video to understand the meaning. They are telling us their soldiers are all about commitment, strength, and endurance. Their job is to kill enemies of their nation without mercy, period. No equivocating. See it here.
    Our recruiting ad tells us of a military focused on explaining micro aggressions and critical race theory of Afghan Tribesmen. It says the most important thing for us is to be from a victim group and our soldiers will help you in sensing sessions and training how to find yourself. They probably brought back “stress cards” they can waive if they have to do too many pushups or get dirty.
    A former U.S. Army recruiter took to Twitter to voice his frustration, “Pick your fighter.”2
    Our military is now the laughingstock of the WORLD and we deserve it. Thank you Woke Gen. Mark Milley and Sec Def Lloyd J. Austin III. Maybe if the U.S. picked some real men for these jobs, things would change.
    PATHETIC!

    PUTON WARNS WOKENESS Is Destroying the West: It Happened in Russia, It’s Evil, It Destroys Values
    By Ryan Saavedra
    Oct 22, 2021 DailyWire.com
    •Russian President Vladimir Putin slammed during a speech on Thursday the far left woke ideology that he said is causing societal ills throughout the Western world, saying that it is no different than what happened in Russia during the 1917 revolution. (when Lenin was in power)
    “We see with bemusement the paralysis unfolding in countries that have grown accustomed to viewing themselves as the flagships of progress,” Putin said during an event where he spoke for a few hours. “Of course, it’s none of our business or what is happening, the social and cultural shocks that are happening in some countries in the Western countries, some believe that aggressive blotting out of whole pages of your own history, the affirmative action in the interest of minorities, and the requirement to renounce the traditional interpretation of such basic values as mother, father, family, and the distinction between sexes are a milestone … a renewal of society.”
    Putin said that Western nations had a right to do whatever they wanted to do but that “the overwhelming majority of Russian society” rejected these new ways of thinking.
    “The preparedness of the so-called social progress believes that the bringing a new conscience, a new consciousness to humanity, something that is more correct,” Putin said. “But there is one thing I would like to say: The recipes they come up with are nothing new. Paradoxical as it may seem, but this is something we saw in Russia. It happened in our country before after the 1917 revolution, the Bolsheviks followed the dogmas of Marx and Engels. And they also declared that they would go into change the traditional lifestyle, the political, the economic lifestyle, as well as the very notion of morality, the basic principles for a healthy society. They were trying to destroy age and century long values, revisiting the relationship between the people, they were encouraging informing on one’s own beloved, and families. It was hailed as the march of progress. And it was very popular across the world and it was supported by many, as we see, it is happening right now.”
    “Incidentally, the Bolsheviks, Lenin- dedicated to creating a communist utopia, it failed miserably. were absolutely intolerant of other opinions, different from their own,” Putin continued. “I think this should remind you of something that is happening. And we see what is happening in the Western countries, it is with puzzlement that we see the practices Russia used to have and that we left behind in distant path, the fight for equality and against discrimination turns into an aggressive dogmatism on the brink of absurdity, when great authors of the past such as Shakespeare are no longer taught in schools and universities because they announced as backward classics that did not understand the importance of gender or race.”
    “In Hollywood there are leaflets reminding what you should do in the cinema, in the films, how many personalities and actors you’ve got, what kind of color, what sex, and sometimes it’s even tighter and stricter than what the Department of Propaganda of the Soviet Communist Party Central Committee did,” he said. “And the fight against racism, which is a lofty goal, turns into a new culture, cancel culture, and into reverse discrimination, racism on the obverse. And it brings people apart, whereas the true fighters for civic rights, they were trying to eliminate those differences. I asked my colleagues to find this quote from Martin Luther King, and he said, ‘I have a dream, that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.’ That is a true value.”
    “You know, the Bolsheviks (a radical, far-left, and revolutionary Marxist faction founded by Vladimir Lenin, were speaking about nationalizing not just the property, but also women,” Putin continued. “The proponents of new approaches go so far as they want to eliminate the whole notions of men and women, and those who dare say that men and women exist and this is a biological fact, they are all but banished. Parent number one, parent number two, or the parent that has given birth, or instead of breast milk, you say human milk. And you say all of that, so the people who are not sure of their sexual agenda are not unhappy.”
    “And I would like to say that this is not something new, and the 20s and the 1920s, the Soviet couture Tagore came up with the so called ‘Newspeak’, and they thought that thereby they were building a new consciousness and coming up with new values, and they went so far that we feel the consequences up until now,” he concluded on the matter. “There are some monstrous things when from a very young age, you teach to children that the boy can easily become a girl and you impose on them this selection, this choice. You push the parents aside and make the child take these decisions that can destroy their lives. And if we call the spade a spade, this is nigh to crime against humanity and all of that under the banner of progress, while some people just want to do that.”

    My compliments to Mr. Cannon: well expressed and thought out. If a person wants to change their name, I will respect that. If they insist that not using the current pronouns offends them, I say, “But your demands offend me, so I guess we’re even. I will never allow someone to put words in my mouth. If you deserve respect, so do I.”

    And they also deserve prayers and pity. The prayers will hopefully help them, but — “You cannot help the mad by becoming mad yourself.” — C.S. Lewis in The Great Divorce.

    We already discriminate in our society: rich/poor, whites/people of color, man/woman…..what’s a little more?

  • Michael Hughes says:

    They are already making criminals out of a majority of normally law abiding citizens with their mask mandates, I see more and more people who refuse to wear them and we are all technically breaking the law by doing so.
    If this continues, more and more of us will begin ignoring other laws, as I am am getting to the point of doing. The left calls riots peaceful protests and the property damage and murders committed during them just retribution against “systematic racism”. They are the racists and fascists, not us, and we have to call out their outrageous views whenever and wherever they state them. I have done so in what begin as normal conversations.
    , albeit in a pleasant manner. I don’t care that they get indignant and I will no longer refuse to be cowed into submission by them. We HAVE TO confront this now, whenever it happens, among friends, acquaintances, co-workers or whoever is in our daily preview or it will only get worse.

    The Big Chief has spoken:
    Former Attorney General Bill Barr, in his first speech since leaving the Justice Department, railed against what he called the “secular progressive orthodoxy through government-run schools,” and
    QUESTIONED the constitutionality of “funding such public institutions”. (He thinks we should not be funding public schools!)
    “The time has come to admit that the approach of giving militantly secularist government schools a monopoly over publicly funded education has become a disaster,”
    Barr said public schools have become totally incompatible with traditional Christianity and other major religions in the U.S., and therefore, “it may no longer be fair, practical or even constitutional to provide publicly funded education solely through the vehicle of state-funded schools.”
    The former attorney general also pointed to an Iowa school’s week of Black Lives Matter curricula, a plan that had forced the school on defense, saying the goal was to “promote focusing on our Black students.”
    Separately, Barr said he’d seen school materials which told children that everyone could choose whether they were male, female or neither. “This is not established science,” he said, but rather the “moral, psychological, metaphysical dogma of the new orthodoxy.”
    The former attorney general said these ideas were relatively unheard of in the U.S. until recently but have become fully instituted in many public-school systems.
    Barr called such ideas “a broadsided attack on natural law.”
    Barr also took a shot at former President Obama for “waltzing into Washington,” and enrolling his daughters in the prestigious private schools, while at the same time eliminating a scholarship for needy kids in Washington.
    ***On the subject of Critical Race Theory, Barr called it “Marxism substituting race, for class antagonism.”
    “It’s monstrous of the state to indoctrinate students into alternate belief systems,” he added.
