    Political Correctness & Small Business: Restaurants

    Be Forewarned: A Personal Disclaimer
    In these days of hypersensitivity and arrogance, sometimes you have to explain to people just what you stand for and what you will put up with. And sometimes you have to be willing to "turn the page" on people you knew yesterday who really don't know you today, especially if they can't divorce politics and ideology from friendship. This week I put people on notice...in an effort to be transparent.

    TRANSCRIPT

    For the last 22 years, I have been fully engaged in the culture war. I have even been the executive director for a small non-profit that dealt with the threats of Progressivism, Islamofascism, and constitutional illiteracy. In addition, I have written for national publications, think tanks, and foundations on these topics and guested on many television and radio programs not because I am a zealot on these issues, but because I have been recognized as someone who is fair; someone who takes great pains to explore all sides of an issue and who seeks out credible, fact-based information, even when everyone else was acting emotionally.

    So, I find it troubling how far to the ideological Left many of my friends and family have jerked in the last 6 or so years. People I respected have suddenly stopped seeking perspective from both sides of an issue; stopped caring about whether what they are buying into is true and unmanipulated, and are full-throatily engaged in advancing political vomit as truth; ideological propaganda as fact. We, as a society – and this includes my circle, large that it is – have mistakenly misconstrued the easy of communicating our opinions with advocating provable truths.

    And before you knee-jerk assign me a label, know that I am just as severe on the elitists of the Right as I am on the oligarchs of the Left. Progressives exist on both sides of the aisle and their goals are the same: harness the emotions of the people to divide, advance opportunistic propaganda based on half-truths and manipulated innuendo, and attain power amongst the chaos. Both sides are guilty of it and for that fact, both sides are to blame.

    But that does not absolve us from our responsibility to see through the fog of politically charged misinformation, to do that we must dispense with the usual suspect media and start going to sources to read white-paper facts on issues and situations. We must have the courage to call people out when they advance media-driven propaganda and confront power when the elitists in control use emotional knee-jerk to manipulate the people into divide.

    No one gets a pass. If you post something that I have found, through my studies of both sides of an issue (and that study goes far beyond the mainstream media rags that do nothing but sensationalize headlines for profit) to be false, misleading or ridiculously conspiratorial I am going to call you on it and I am forewarning everyone, family and friends, that I am finished being polite about it.

    For 22 years I have been polite about explaining the information I have discovered, tested, and confirmed, and for some reason, today, because everyone has a Facebook account, opinions trump facts. This cannot and will not stand.

    So, for the record:

    ▪ I am a constitutionalist and not one who only values the Charters of Freedom when it is advantageous. I do not riot if my candidate doesn’t win. I do not loot when the media snaps its fingers. And I do not automatically believe that because someone thinks differently than me that he or she is an a*****e. That moniker is saved for when that person proves him or herself to be an a*****e.

    ▪ I do my research before I espouse my opinion. My...

    The Progressives Are Doing It Right Before Our Eyes

    The Progressives Are Doing It Right Before Our Eyes

    One of the tactics that Progressives enjoy using most is the tactic of redefinition. We see it every day and in every avenue of life. It is facilitated by the idea of political correctness which in and of itself is an attempt to redefine and actually rewrite the Bill of Rights to the US Constitution. The odd thing is this. Political correctness is not legislated. It is imposed. That’s what makes it the most dangerous weapon in the Progressives’ arsenal.

    TRANSCRIPT

    One of the tactics that Progressives enjoy using most is the tactic of redefinition. We see it every day and in every avenue of life. It is facilitated by the idea of political correctness which in and of itself is an attempt to redefine and actually rewrite the Bill of Rights to the US Constitution. The odd thing is this. Political correctness is not legislated. It is imposed. That’s what makes it the most dangerous weapon in the Progressives’ arsenal.

    Some of the more obvious examples of Progressive redefinition come in the form of the ever-changing labels they bestow upon groups and movements. Since the 1950s, Blacks in the United States, as a group, have seen language referring to their demographic change almost constantly. Negroes, African-American, Black-American, black with a small “B”, and now Black with a capital “B”, Progressives have always been on the hunt for what resonates with the Black demographic.

    Recently, the Associated Press – which has an unbalanced influence of our media outlets when it comes to “style,” has issued a rash of edicts mandating the redefinition of journalistic lingo. Aside from their edict about the capital “B” in the use of “Black” in news items, the AP has also decided that if the use of the words “racism” or “racist” is applicable, “racially charged” should not be used.

    The USA Today gave a platform to certain Progressive academics, who suggest that the words “violence,” “looting,” and “rioting” should not be used when referring to what happened in the streets of Minneapolis and other urban centers in the aftermath of George Floyd’s death. The academics claim these words don’t accurately reflect the protesters’ “rage” and hopelessness.

    These language usage changes may seem small and inconsequential but when the many changes are applied over time they work to “nudge” our society’s “acceptable language” to facilitate a singular ideological view. In doing so, organizations like the AP and other media outlets are incrementally engineering our culture to a preferred viewpoint.

    Then there are the passive inclusions to existing definitions that completely change the meaning of a phrase or, in this case, a perceived movement. In the article, GOP Candidate Is Latest Linked to QAnon Conspiracy Theory, reporters Jim Anderson, Nicholas Riccardi, and Alan Fram, cite a professor at the University of Miami in their attempt to marry the “Q movement” to

    The Media & First Amendment Protection: Abuse of Power

    The Media & First Amendment Protection: Abuse of Power

    The Framers established protection for the media so that it could speak truth to power; so the press was free to provide opposing views to a free people could so they could decide for themselves – at the ballot box – what direction they wanted to take our country.

    But the Framers never envisioned a media so corrupt, so ideologically agenda-driven, or so disingenuously manipulative as today’s media. If they did they would have dramatically narrowed the scope of media protection

    An Act of War: ANTIFA Marches on America

    An Act of War: ANTIFA Marches on America

    As our urban centers around the United States literally burn - stores being looted and citizens sleeping with loaded weapons at the ready, it has become abundantly clear that this destruction and violence has nothing at all to do with the death of a Black man in Minneapolis. In stead, it has everything to do with an act of war and the attempted overthrow of the US government by ANTIFA, a far-Left, Progressive anarchist group.

    TRANSCRIPT

    As of this recording, the city of Minneapolis and its surrounding counties – along with urban areas around the country – are on fire, literally. Monuments in Washington, DC – including the World War II Memorial and the Lincoln Memorial – have been defaced. A 204-year-old church complex, St. John’s, across from the White House, was briefly set afire. And posters are popping up all over urban centers organizing ANTIFA terrorists to “move the battle to the suburbs”. A federal agent in Oakland was killed and law enforcement – as well as fire and EMS personnel – are under violent attack from coast to coast.

    If anyone believes that this violence and destruction is related to the death of George Floyd they are delusional. This is a full-on attempt at crippling the country by Progressive domestic terrorists. This is an act of war at the hands of ANTIFA.

    By all rational accounts, the system – which in some cases used to ignore the use of excessive force by law enforcement – is working this time. The four cops who are accused of used excessive force in Minneapolis were terminated, Officer Derek Chauvin has been charged with 3rd degree murder and manslaughter, and the DoJ is looking into the application of Civil Rights violation charges. The system is working. Bad people who did bad things are being punished, investigated, charged and will get tried by a jury.

    Yet, in the face of the system working, legitimate protesters took to the streets of Minneapolis. They rightfully marched to protest a questionable death of a man in police custody. These protesters had the hearts and minds of every American. If these protests would have stayed non-violent that would still be the case today. Sadly, violent ideological opportunists; anarchists and hardcore socialists took advantage of the situation.

    Now, rioting, looting, and acts of arson on an scale that makes Devils Night in Detroit look like a quaint bonfire have exploded in many urban areas and are threatening to expand into suburban areas across the country. In some larger urban areas this criminal activity has ventured into the suburban areas. Shopping and business centers are closing out of an abundance of caution and county and suburban police forces are gearing up in preparation for the worst. All officers are on heightened alert, public works trucks are set-up as barriers at intersections, people are sleeping with loaded weapons at the ready.

    This unrest has spread across our nation in short order; from New York, to Chicago, Nashville to Atlanta, Louisville, Des Moines, Washington, DC, Los Angeles, and other major cities in the United States, and has done so in a curious sense of coordination and precision.

    These “protests” stink of being manufactured and pre-prepared, and evidence is pointing to the involvement of Progressive-Left ANTIFA domestic terror group from coast to coast.

    Adam Leggat, a former British Army counterterrorism officer and security consultant specializing in crowd management for the Densus Group, describes the ANTIFA agitators thusly:

    “The real hard-core guys, this is their job: They’re involved in this struggle...They need protests on the street to give them cover to move i

Finally, a news-based, fact-filled program without the fluff of the "gotta get the ratings to sell a widget" mentality. Hard-hitting but heck if it isn't spot on...Good podcast!
