eight startling and uncomfortable ways
the democrat party emulates the nazi party

friday, june 30th, 2023

The Democrat party has been a stain on the nation since its founding in 1828 by a virulently racist president, Andrew Jackson.  It was the party of slavery and the Confederacy, it initiated racial segregation by legislating and brutally enforcing Jim Crow laws.  It unabashedly aligned with and supported the Ku Klux Klan for over nine decades, thus promoting antisemitism, religious persecution and xenophobia.  Over the past 60 years, the Party has embraced and promulgated cultural Marxism which espouses the transformation of traditional American culture and society.  The Party has succeeded in undermining the family structure and religious freedom as well as mainstreaming abortions up to the point of birth and what was once considered deviancy.

The terms used to discuss consequential subjects is a key element of tyranny.

The Democrat party’s two most exalted figureheads are the fervently racist Woodrow Wilson who set the Party on the path of undermining the Constitution in order to remold the United States into a “modern administrative state” (i.e., socialist) and Franklin Roosevelt who was enamored with and utilized Fascist principles in his “New Deal” thus permanently embedding them in the Party’s psyche.

An unemotional examination of the underlying philosophies and the tactics the Nazi Party used to gain and maintain power reveals not just the common impulse to weaponize the judiciary to eradicate one’s political opponents (e.g., Donald Trump) but numerous other similarities between the Nazis and the Democrat party that cannot be ignored.  Here are eight uncomfortable dimensions of that resemblance.

First, racial and ethnic division was a central component of Nazi political strategy and philosophy.  The Nazi Party was the most racially obsessed political party in human history.  Today’s Democrat party is second only to the Nazi Party in their racial obsession.   Every piece of legislation, every accusation against their opponents, every aspect of American society, even weather and climate are framed in imaginary racism.  

The Nazi Party’s obsession focused on their perverted belief in the inferiority and superiority of the races or ethnicities.  This opened the door for blaming a specific ethnic group for all the problems facing their country.   The Democrat party is claiming the root cause of virtually all problems facing this nation is “systemic racism” as theoretically instigated by one particular race.

The country needs a speech in the vein of Dwight Eisenhower’s farewell address, when he warned us about the growing power of the Military-Industrial Complex. We did not heed that warning, and have been steeped in woe, ever since.

The Nazis used “fake news,” as does the Democrat party, in order to slice and dice the populace into identity groups and then promulgate grievance-riddled policies aimed at these manufactured factions in order to foment anger at a previously isolated group.  Which for the Nazis were the Jews; and for the Democrat party, white heterosexual Christians and Jews.

Second, In the 1920s and early 1930s, the Nazi Party relied on street riots, property damage and gratuitous violence utilizing their militant cadre, the Sturmabteilung (SA), to project power through intimidation while blaming others for the violence.  Their ability to terrorize the citizenry and national political leadership played a major role in their ascendance to power as they promised peace and impartial justice if elected.  Almost immediately upon assuming the reins of government, they transformed the judicial system into a vehicle of oppression directed their political foes and the Jews while their allies were not prosecuted for any criminal activity.

The Democrat party revealed in the summer of 2020 that they, too, have the wherewithal and inclination to acquiesce to street riots, property damage and gratuitous violence utilizing their militant cadre, Antifa and Black Lives Matter, to project power through intimidation while blaming white supremacy and police brutality for the violence.   In the presidential campaign of 2020, the Democrat party implicitly promised peace and impartial justice if elected.  Almost immediately upon assuming the reins of government, they transformed the Justice Department into a vehicle of oppression directed at their political foes, Donald Trump and all Constitutional conservatives, while their allies were either not prosecuted or treated extraordinarily leniently. 

Third, in January 1933, Hitler was appointed Chancellor of Germany.  Within four weeks a mysterious, and in all likelihood staged, fire broke out in the Reichstag (Congress) Building which the Nazis blamed on Communist agitators as their opening salvo in a violent coup.  Using this pretext, the Nazis rushed to arrest and harshly prosecute selected elements of their political adversaries, thus intimidating the balance.  They also forced through the Reichstag the Enabling Act of 1933 in March of the same year.   This law embedded the Nazis as the sole dominant political party and ensured that only the Nazis could win future elections. 

The Democrat party seized upon in all likelihood a setup disturbance at the Capitol on January 6, 2021 to proclaim that it was an “armed insurrection” and the opening salvo in a violent coup attempt by Trump, his supporters and white supremacists.  Using this pretext, the Democrats rushed to arrest and harshly prosecute those in attendance in order to intimidate their political enemies.   In the footsteps of the Nazi Party, the Democrats immediately pushed to pass the For The People Act, which would have overturned virtually all existing voter laws, embedded the Democrats as the sole dominant political party and ensured that only the Democrats could win future elections. 

Fourth, antisemitism was a foundational principle of Nazism.  Antisemitism, through the Democrats’ nine-decade alliance with the Ku Klux Klan, has long been foundational in the Democrat party.  Today, many elected Democrats openly denigrate the state of Israel, glorify the Palestinian terrorists, and claim that Jews are disloyal.  Thus, fomenting an exponential increase in anti-Jewish attacks in America’s major cities.

Meanwhile, virtually the entire Democrat hierarchy bows at the feet of America’s most virulent antisemite, Louis Farrakhan, who has referred to Judaism as the “religion of Satan” and Adolf Hitler as “a very great man.”   This obeisance to Farrakhan and his ilk is concordant with the mindless acceptance of unbridled antisemitism by the hierarchy of the Nazi Party in the mid-to-late 1920’s.

Fifth, the Nazi Party was fixated on censorship and eliminating any cultural institution, publication or speech that did not fully support them.  Further, per socialist dogma, they were determined to destroy the family structure, replacing it with the state.   The Nazis were notorious for book-burning rituals to intimidate and send the message that they would shut down anyone and anything that did not align with their ideology.  Once in control of the national levers of powers, they did so with impunity particularly in the education sector whose revised primary purpose was to brainwash the youth.    

The Democrat Party is figuratively burning books as it uses social media mobs as the vehicle to send the message that they will shut down anyone or anything that does not align with their ideology.  Further, they, in league with the teachers’ unions, are hellbent on programming America’s youth and destroying the family structure replacing it with the state.

Sixth, the Nazis perfected the art of indoctrinating the citizenry through propaganda and “fake news.”  Joseph Goebbels, Nazi Minister of Propaganda, is credited with saying: “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.”    

This strategy has been and continues to be used to great success by the Democrat party and their fellow travelers in the so-called mainstream media.  Whether it is the Russian collusion hoax, the so-called armed insurrection on January 6, 2021, climate change as an existential threat to mankind, suppression of voting rights, white supremacy running rampant, the necessity of lockdowns for the Covid pandemic or a myriad of other fabrications, the Party hierarchy lies with impunity as a means to their ends… as did the Nazis.

Seventh, the Nazis, true to socialist ideology, preyed on class envy to stoke tensions and resentment as they blamed the Jews and wealthy capitalists for their nation’s economic woes.   The Democrat party hierarchy began in 2009 blaming so-called “white supremacy” together with their century-old tactic of blaming wealthy capitalists for income and economic inequality in order to foment class envy and resentment. 

But the similarity does not end there.  In an extraordinary juxtaposition, the Nazis were able to vilify the wealthy and the industrialists while the subjects of their vitriol financed the Nazi Party.  Hitler assured the German corporate titans that, despite their rhetoric, the Nazis would leave them alone and award them lucrative contracts if they sustained the Party through massive financial support.  

The Democrat Party has established a similar rapport with the corporate establishment, in particular the finance and tech sectors.  In the belief that they will be left alone by the Democrat party, the American corporate elites have financed the party out to destroy capitalism.

Eighth, Hitler, after serving in World War I, was an avowed communist who eventually joined the National Socialist Party, later renamed the National Socialist Workers (NAZI) Party.  He did so because it was larger and also espoused Marxism/socialism.  Influenced by Mussolini and his Fascist Party, in the 1920s the National Socialist Party adopted extreme nationalism and government-controlled capitalism as a part of their foundational Marxist/socialist underpinning.  

While flirting with it for a number of decades, in the latter half of the Twentieth Century the Democrat party began to fully embrace an American version of the Marxism/socialism that underpinned the NAZI Party.   Mark Levin in his seminal work American Marxism, lays out in detail this metamorphosis.  For all intents and purposes, the Democrat party could easily be renamed: The National Marxist/Socialist Party. 

The greatest threat to the survival of United States as founded is not offshore but within its borders: the Democrat party.

A Day In The Life.

Up at 8a on Friday, I went thru my finger stick to check my BSL (Blood Sugar Level) and recorded it on my Diabetes 2 chart, made coffee and breakfast, took two 50mg Tramadol and a 300mg Gabapentin for various back/shoulder/elbow pains, fired-up the 2009 Win-7 Pro x64 Pentium HP desktop, to let 32+ million lines of code load, had a couple smokes in the semi-cool garage and checked the leftover errands list.

It was a damp, cool 64° and my rain gauge showed that we'd gotten another ½" overnight; nice. The flora and fauna are pleased. Showers and t-storms were forecast for today, with more rain. Only a ***Fair Air Quality Alert***, but I'll be inside today at the York Galleria, with Sherry, so no real problem. And no complaints about the rain. I fired-up the furnace to take the chill off, and scanned the news and weather sites. Same old news crap as yesterday. The rain continued. I tuned into the Chris Stigall Show LIVE, 6-9, and then to the Chris Plante Show LIVE, from 9-12.

I had lunch and met Sherry around 2p, we walked and came back to my place to sit and talk. We had a great time together, as usual. The wind outside, dropped-off, and it felt like a wet sauna; so sticky and uncomfortable, we mostly stayed inside the condo, at 72° and dry. Sherry left early, to get back before Friday "rush hour" hit Rt 30, in the rain. People are nuts when it rains, don't slow down, and accidents happen too quickly. I had a light dinner and watched Discovery's "Hoffman Family Gold", "Mine Rescue w/ Freddy & Juan" (both "Gold Rush" spin-offs) and a new episode of "Gold Rush", until 11:30, and bagged it for the night.

Awake at 8a on Saturday, a cloudy, rainy 70° morning with no wind or breeze, again. It was another steam bath outside, even with the garage door opened. Mid-80s and t-storms forecast. I made coffee, took the pain pills, and had smokes in the humid garage. Only another day of "Fair Air Quality", which doesn't bother me. At least it's not 90°+. Yet. That's coming all too soon enough. No errands to do; I did them all, and I just lounged around all morning, listening to the "CP Show" podcast episodes on iHeart, that I'd missed during the week. Not even a slight breeze. Just a massive amount of humidity, like a dome, sitting on top of us, like yesterday. The clouds broke, the sun came out around 10a, but then t-storms moved into the area and dumped on us. And we got another ½" of rain.

I've just started (occasionally) listening to the Bulwark Podcast, and don't have an opinion on it, yet. AccuWeather's Maps show the bulk of the overnight t-storms are now up in New England, or blown out into the Atlantic. T-storm cells kept passing thru the area, dumping more rain -- no complaints! -- and I kept a watch out for hail warnings, since I have a massive, almost full-length, $7k Panorama Sunroof on the 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee HEMI V8. T-storms passed; no hail, just a little rain.

I ordered-in a 14" pizza, Philly Cheese Steak and Smothered w/ Cheese & Bacon Tater Tots, gorged myself, watched the news and tuned over to "Hoffman Family Gold" and last night's missed episode of "Gold Rush" in season 13. I dozed-off in one of the director's chairs, in front of the Samsung 82" QLED4 HD TV, woke around 1`0p, rewound the now twice-missed episode, and watched until midnight. Lights out. No F-1 race tomorrow morning, so I'm sleeping-in. There are IMSA (Int'l Motor Sports Ass'n) races on at 10-5, so I will watch during my condo chores.

So much for sleeping-in... I was awake and up at 7a on Sunday, a beautiful but very humid, sunny, blue sky, 68° morning, again with nary a breeze or wind; just dead still outside. That's 3 days in a row. Dangerous t-storms were forecast by AccuWeather.com, for today, tonite and tomorrow. I made coffee and had some smokes in the open garage. The neighborhood was quiet, birds were out and singing, and the sky clouded-up quickly, then cleared. Weird weather, from a major t-storm front in Ohio, coming this way, later today.

I just can't seem to handle the humidity and hot temps, with my COPD, but thanks to my Rx Emergency Inhaler -- Combivent Respimat 20mg/100dcl -- liquid mist (not that powder shit), I can cope OK with the Summer weather. I scanned the news and weather, but just more of the same ol' crap. Most of it's old news; from days ago and no new updates. Fox News sucks. The alternatives are even worse.

I stayed inside for most of the day, as the air and humidity combination was bad for me. High for the day was 82°, and ugly, with no wind or breeze. I had a few chores, some paperwork to do, and races to watch. After a late dinner, I prepped for the morning, watched TV until 12:30a, and unplugged.

Awake at 7a, from the 1st garbage truck (recycle truck come thru later) rolling thru the complex, it was another overcast, humid, poor air quality and 72° morning, with very heavy afternoon t-storms forecast. Still, no wind or breeze; everything is dead still outside. I had a light breakfast, tuned into the "CP Show", which had a sub host, and decided to leave around 10:30 for a lot of errands, so as to avoid any hail from the coming t-storms. I left at 10 to get a long list of errands done, before the nasty weather arrives this afternoon.

I noticed this on my Jeep's UConnect® Screen and on my office-sunroom desktop unit, getting back home back around 1:15p, had lunch and garaged the Jeep:

• HAZARD: Wind gusts up to 50-70 mph and golfball-to-baseball-sized hail.
• SOURCE: Radar indicated.
• TIMING: 8:00 AM to Until 900 PM EDT.
• IMPACT: Gusty winds could knock down tree limbs and blow around unsecured objects. Serious golfball-sized hail damage to residences, cars, vegetation likely.
• Thunderstorms with locally heavy rain are expected across the watch area this afternoon and this evening. Rainfall amounts of 1-2 inches with localized amounts up to 4 inches are possible. These totals may result in flash flooding.
• Issued By State College (at Penn State) -- PA, US, National Weather Service.

After some pizza for a late lunch, I grabbed a 2hr snooze on the LR couch, and by 5:30p, I checked the weather maps and the progress of the t-storm fronts, as there were multiple purple cells coming at the York area. Temps had dropped from 94°, 65% humidity down to 85° and 50% humidity, and there was a noticeable breeze, finally.

At 8:12p, the sky darkened to midnight, and the t-storms hit us. Massive rolls of thunder for 4-5mins. Birds quit chirping and headed back to their nests, or to cover from the imminent storm. It REALLY thundered, poured and temps dropped 20°, at least. Wowzer, what a storm. Lights, computer -- everything electrical -- went out for 2-3mins, and then reset. Nothing damaged, but I had 3 digital clocks to reset in my BR and kitchen. By 8:40p, it was past the York area, and done for the night. I watched some TV until 11:30, and called it a day.

Up at 6a, to a 68°, very humid, ***Fair Air Quality***, partly sunny VERY humid, Tuesday morning, I made coffee and did the other routines, as I had JoAnne, my cleaning lady, in here at 8:30. I'd worked-up a food shopping list and would go to Weis Market after she finished and left, around 11:30. I scanned the news and weather websites. Looks like New England got hit worse than we did, from last night's t-storm front. More are forecast for today, tonight and tomorrow. Here's where to go, to find out about your power outage problems.

JoAnne finished-up around 11:30, and I left for Weis Market. $105 and 5 bags later, I was back home, unpacking all that stuff. I always do the self-service line, and get thru checkout very quickly. I had to stop at Royal Farms and get 21gals of Ethanol-Free 90oct Premium, at $4.29/gal, and get ahead of more t-storms coming thru. They passed with only scattered rain, and once again: zero wind or breeze. At 80% humidity, so it was hard for me to breathe, with my COPD. I stayed inside the cool, dry condo. Then around 5p, the skies opened-up and we caught 1" of a downpour.

I grabbed 2hrs on the LR couch, had dinner and watched History's "The Secret of Skinwalker Ranch" and "Beyond Skinwalker Ranch" until 11:30p, and unplugged for the night.

Up at 7:15a on Wednesday, a 64°, smoky and hazy, ***Poor-Unhealthy Air Quality***, from the Canadian Wildfires, 80% humidity, overcast morning. But at least there was a nice breeze. I made coffee, fed the squirrels, had a few smokes in the garage and back patio, and scanned the news and weather on my desktop PC. I took 2 50mg Tramadol and a 300mg Gabapentin for lower back, elbow and feet pain. Heh. I tuned into the "CS Show", which had a "Best Of" series on, as he was on vacation. Many Talk Radio hosts are doing the same thing, for the upcoming July 4th Weekend Holiday, and into Monday, though the 4th falls on Tuesday. Meh. I stay off the roads on the 4th, New Year's Eve, and Memorial Day, since there are so many drunks on the roads, and accidents/deaths are high on those 3 weekend holidays.

No, I haven't seen many or even any HoneyBees around in years, since the condo assn's lawn care company has used Scott's Turf Builder, to kill and remove all the Clover in our lawns. And the use of herbicides has also increased here, contributing to the Bee's absence.

With 20% of America's Airline Industry grounded because they're not outfitted with 5G Network hardware -- they're still using 3G or 4G hardware -- and the new 5G Law takes effect July 1st, will they ever catch up? I don't know and place the blame directly on Sec Petey Butt-Boy, "head" of the US Transportation Dep't. Butt-Boy should go on "permanent maternity leave", and quit f•cking-up our country, by doing NOTHING about anything.

After lunch, I left to meet Sherry, at 12:45p. We had a nice, long walk, as usual, and stopped into Boscov's Dept Store, to get 2 more Versa 3-Arm 20,000 Lumens LED ceiling lights (can't find a pic, but similar to this unit.) -- on sale from $19.99 to $9.99 -- for the basement, to match the one I'd installed in my garage. Back to my place after 1½hrs, we relaxed and talked until 5, when she had to for errands, and then home. A nice day when I'm with her. The 2 overhead, screw-in, 3-arm, 20,000 lumens lights did a nice job of lighting the basement. I had dinner, and listened to the "Mark Levin Show" on WMAL from DC, and relaxed on the back patio, in the nice breeze.

After some dinner, I watched the news, and switched-over to old, missed episodes of "The Secret of Skinwalker Ranch" and "Beyond Skinwalker Ranch" until 11:30, and bagged it for the night.

I woke to a left foot cramp, at 7:15a on Thursday, but massaged it and went back to sleep, for a little while, but decided to get up. Another cool, humid, 61°, hazy, overcast """Very Unhealthy Air Quality*** day. Damn. No outside walking today. I had 2 carafes of House Dark French Roast Coffee, breakfast and tuned into the "CS Show" and "CP Show" -- both of which were hosted by subs -- until 10:45a, and left for my 11:30 Dr's appt.

After scanning the news and weather websites, I'd had enough of the same old shit stuff, and went back to the "CP Show" and just relaxing. I fed the 3 tame grey squirrels on the front driveway, and enjoyed watching their antics. I cleaned-up the kitchen, and got ready for the day.

The SCOTUS just gave the boot to the unconstitutional crap of Affirmative Action, in place since the 60s. Good riddance, racist crap. But libtard and progressive heads are exploding, all over the place, and they're going to "find ways around the ruling". AFFIRMATIVE ACTION IS/WAS RACIST! SCOTUS found that race-based admissions programs at Harvard and the University of North Carolina (UNC) are unconstitutional, and in violation of the 14th Amendment. Good! It's a start toward reform.

And then there's this:

• HAZARD: The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection has issued a CODE RED Air Quality Alert! for all of Central & Eastern Pennsylvania due to smoke from Canadian wildfires.
• SOURCE: Radar indicated.
• TIMING: From 05:35am EDT, Jun 29 2023, until 12:00am EDT, Jun 30 2023
• IMPACT: A code RED air quality alert means that air pollution concentrations may be unhealthy for some members of the general public. Members of sensitive groups including young children, the elderly, and those with respiratory problems may experience more serious health impacts. The effects of air pollution can be minimized by avoiding prolonged or heavy exertion.
• Issued By State College (at Penn State) -- PA, US, National Weather Service.

The Dr's appt went well, but they were so overbooked, and had several emergencies, that I had a 1hr wait. No problem. I was back home by 1:15p, made a Ham & Swiss on Rye Sandwich, pasta salad and Talenti Gelato for lunch, and tuned into some podcasts of the morning's missed "CP Show". Lunch and dessert made me so tired, I laid down for 2hrs, rather than go out for a walk in the *unhealthy air*. Nice nap. It took me a while to fully 'wake-up', but I had some things to do to get ready for the coming evening. I called Sherry to make plans for next week, and I'll check back in with her over the weekend.

Still full from the late and large lunch, I skipped dinner, had a few smokes and iced teas on the back patio, and at dark (8:40p), got out of the "campfire smelling air" from Canada. I watcxhed some TV until 11:30, and called it quits for the night.

Tomorrow starts a new week here in the "Journal", and it's a totally clear one for me. Nada. Sherry and I have 2 days together, and maybe we'll do somethoing other than walking; perhaps a road trip or something.

U.S. Navy Heard What It Believed Was Titan Implosion Days Ago.

The Biden regime KNEW days ago the Titan and all aboard were dead on Sunday..but they pushed the whole “We hear pinging sounds” nonsense to deflect attention from Hunter and the info we found out today.

A top secret military acoustic detection system designed to spot enemy submarines first heard what the U.S. Navy suspected was the Titan submersible implosion hours after the submersible began its voyage, officials involved in the search said.

The Navy began listening for the Titan almost as soon as the sub lost communications, according to a U.S. defense official. Shortly after the submersible’s disappearance Sunday, the U.S. system detected what it suspected was the sound of an implosion near the debris site discovered Thursday and reported its findings to the Coast Guard commander on site, U.S. defense officials said.

While the Navy couldn’t say definitively the sound came from the Titan, the discovery played a role in narrowing the scope of the search for the vessel before its debris was discovered Thursday, the officials said.

“The U.S. Navy conducted an analysis of acoustic data and detected an anomaly consistent with an implosion or explosion in the general vicinity of where the Titan submersible was operating when communications were lost,” a senior U.S. Navy official told The Wall Street Journal in a statement. “While not definitive, this information was immediately shared with the Incident Commander to assist with the ongoing search and rescue mission.”

Cole James Bridges went to a high school in Clarkesville, Tennessee and worked at a Papa Johns pizza place near Akron, Ohio before joining the United States Army. Mateo Ventura was a high school student in Wakefield, Massachusetts.

Within a week of each other in June 2023, Bridges pled guilty to plotting to help ISIS kill American soldiers, while Ventura was arrested for trying to provide aid to the Islamic State.

Bridges and Ventura, 20 and 18 years old, like Trevor Bickford, 19, of Maine, who was hit with federal charges this year for attacking NYPD police officers with a machete in Times Square, and Xavier Pelkey, 18, also of Maine, who pled guilty in April after trying to recruit two underage teens for a terrorist attack in Chicago, show the rate at which ordinary American teens are converting to Islam and plotting terrorist attacks.

While we made everyone take their shoes off at the airport and labored to win hearts and minds in Afghanistan and Iraq, Islamic terrorists won the hearts and minds of our children.

Our national security establishment feverishly imagined vast Al Qaeda attack plots while ignoring the real attack. An attack so deep and so wounding that it is far more devastating than September 11. It was an attack aided and abetted by the government, our cultural establishment and entertainment industries which urged Americans to learn about and embrace Islam.

Teenagers like Bridges, Ventura, Bickford, Pelkey and many others did. While Muslim immigrants still make up a significant percentage of Islamic terror plots, they increasingly come from American teenagers who converted to Islam. And, unlike past Muslim terror converts who followed a familiar path from drug dealing to prison to terrorism, these are our boys.

Except they’re not ours anymore.

Bridges lyrically spoke of the Islamic terrorists of ISIS as “brothers who have been fighting to establish a khilafah” or caliphate, and “have inspired me a lot, they’re (sic) love for Allah.”

Ventura wanted to fight a “war on kuffar” or non-Muslims.

Bickford carried an Islamic text and had underlined the words, “fight in the Name of Allah and in the Cause of Allah. Fight against those who do not believe in Allah. Wage a holy war.” He wrote in his journal that he wanted a traditional Muslim burial and did not want to be buried “in the land of the kuffar”. If he died while killing Americans, he did not want to be laid to rest in America.

Pelkey, who changed his name to Abdullah, wrote that he wanted to “burst thru the door of Jihad in america and strike fear in the hearts of these kafirun nothing pisses these american kuffar off and scares em more than a term they use ‘homegrown terrorist.’”

Their plans for Islamic mass murder, Bridges wanted to attack the 9/11 memorial, Pelkey was going to burst into a synagogue separate the adults from the children, and then kill the adults, have received what little attention a broken country has to spare for the kind of story that people don’t even pay attention to anymore. We are so busy fighting each other that we hardly even look up when the next generation converts to Islam and signs up with Al Qaeda or ISIS.

Americans used to associate Islamic converts with black nationalist groups, but this is no longer the case. Latinos, like Bridges (raised by a stepfather, his mother’s last name was Gonzalez), are the fastest growing population of converts, but a quarter of converts to Islam are white.

In the UK, young white Muslim converts like 19-year-old Matthew King, whose mother turned him in after an attack plot on British soldiers, or Lewis Ludlow, who changed his name to Ali Hussain and pled guilty to scouting out targets like St Paul’s Cathedral and Madame Tussauds, are also becoming more commonplace.

There are certain common denominators among Muslim converts as there are among school shooters. Bickford was being raised by a stepfather while Ventura had been bullied in school. Bickford’s father had died of a drug overdose, and Pelkey was living with his mother and an autistic younger brother.

Like most cults, the new mosque recruits are lost and looking for somewhere to belong. Missing fathers and a general sense of alienation are a common theme. America no longer provides a sense of identity and even institutions like the U.S. Army don’t offer any real purpose. Falling through the spreading cracks of an imploding culture, they join gangs, movements and Islam.

What too few Americans understood after the September 11 attacks was that this was a culture war. Foreign Muslim terrorists could kill us by the thousands and perhaps even one day the hundreds of thousands, but even at expanding immigration rates it would take generations for them to demographically conquer us. Unlike Europe, America has a more robust birth rate, in part because of migration from south of the border. We would have to conquer ourselves.

The Bush administration responded to 9/11 with an ambitious effort to democratize the Muslim world, unaware and uncaring of the Muslim world’s parallel effort to Islamize America. The withdrawal from Afghanistan, like the failure of the Arab Spring and the rise of ISIS, collapsed the project to democratize the Muslim world. But the Islamization of America is succeeding.

What does Islam offer that we don’t? Patriarchy for fatherless boys, the illusion of belonging to a global Islamic Ummah, the promise of a system of moral order with the creation of the Caliphate, and the escape from a culture that no longer stands for much except comic book movies and politics.

Pop culture and politics have become the religions of a declining nation. In the midst of the culture war, many Americans from both sides have developed hostility and contempt for their own country. Others retreat to imaginary pop culture universes to debate the ins and outs of their devotion to Marvel, Star Wars or Taylor Swift with the intensity once reserved for theology.

Americans are becoming less patriotic and religious and the falloff is most pronounced among the young. It is no coincidence that Islamic recruitment of American teens is booming in areas where traditional organized religion is declining. Is it surprising that Maine, the third least religious state where barely a quarter described themselves as Christians, produced two Islamic terror converts? A decade ago, only 34% of people in the state believed religion was very important. But just because people abandon traditional churches, doesn’t mean that teenagers and twenty-somethings will give up on religion. They will find people who really believe.

And the Jihad really believes.

We are not just losing the military and demographic wars, but the even more important cultural war. America’s political and cultural establishment embraced Islam. And this is the result.

All the episodes of ‘24’ envisioning complicated plots of mass murder were off the mark. What happened instead was that the plotters got on planes, landed and moved here. They set up mosques and schools, they became reporters, executives and members of congress. Like their leftist allies, they fought the war from the inside and we did not so much lose as surrender.

A generation of young men, born after 9/11 and the end of the War on Terror, were urged to learn about Islam, the way they’re encouraged to learn about sex changes. Some castrated themselves and pretended to be women, others joined ISIS instead.

When life looks senseless and meaningless, each day filled with mechanical routines and hollow entertainments, the human soul needs to reach for something that promises more.

America is not becoming irreligious, it is losing its religions and finding new gods. Some of those gods tell their followers to kill the infidels, attack the 9/11 memorial and kill until America is Islamic.

As we take off our shoes at the airport, a new generation is losing its soul.

[JS: I've been warning about this, here in the "Journal", for years, since 9-11. We've been infiltrated and compromised beyond belief, thanks to our communist/socialists/Marxist/"culture warriorsw" who've made this happen, so gradually that no one even noticed.]

The Bottom of The Slippery Slope.

The long ordeal of Pride Month is almost at a close, but this festival would not be truly complete without prominent figures advancing the argument for child sexualization. Adults exposing themselves to random children on the street is de jure illegal; those who do so are criminals who should receive a prison sentence and a spot on the sex offender registry.

Until a few years ago, this was the obvious and unspoken consensus across America. No discussion on the issue was needed; perverts who waved their genitals at children went to jail and were viewed with scorn for the rest of their lives. Very little discussion was had on the issue, and no indecent exposure laws were really changed, but America finds itself in a place where proudly flashing a crowd full of children has been de facto legalized.

Police now stand idly by as grown men enthusiastically display themselves to the public while confused children look on, hoping that some adult will recognize the absurdity of the situation. Officers ignore the law, knowing better than to disrupt a state-sanctioned religious festival, and simply allow the public abuse and grooming to unfold. Doing otherwise would mean immediate personal and professional destruction for an officer or deputy who made the mistake of intervening. America has arrived at a very dark but entirely predictable place, paying the cost of apathy and decadence with the innocence of its own children.

At a Pride parade in Seattle over the weekend, a group of nude adults rode bicycles in the middle of the street as they waved giddily at a crowd full of children. Twitter accounts like Libs of Tiktok and the Post Millennial broke the story, including video of the shocking event, and the response from progressives was rather telling.

The left was outraged, not at the adults who had exposed themselves to children, but at the conservative media outlets that had dared to reveal what actually happened to minors in one of America’s largest cities. Attorney and progressive pundit Ron Filipkowski tweeted out, “As I said when Pride Month began, the Right uses this stuff to win elections and then pass laws and appoint judges to take away your rights.” "Star Trek" actor and outspoken activist George Takei quickly replied, “Even if there were no naked guys on bikes this year, they would find picture or generate them and push the same agenda anyway. There’s no 'fixing' this by calling for self-censoring.” The horrific honesty of this exchange is stunning. It would seem that grown men exposing themselves to children is not the real problem; it is, in fact, a right and a form of self-expression.

Takei characterized covering one’s genitals as self-censorship, which can only lead to one question: Why does he see getting naked in front of a crowd full of children as an essential expression of LGBTQ identity? The implication is that this activity is both normal and encouraged at Pride events and was only being curtailed due to concerns about optics now that minors are regularly in attendance. Takei, sure that the right will continue to oppose Pride events no matter what, simply sees no reason for LGBTQ parade participants to censor themselves by wearing clothes in front of children.

As stunning as that admission may seem, the reaction of progressive journalist Brian Krassenstein provided an even bigger mask-off moment. Like Filipkowski, Krassenstein took to Twitter to express his outrage, not at the adults who had exposed themselves to children, but at the conservative media outlets that shared the video taken at these events. Krassentein was wise enough to initially frame his protest as concern for children who might see the footage on Twitter, chastising conservative outlets for complaining about child exposure in one instance but facilitating it on another platform. It was obvious that his real intent was to shame conservative outlets for revealing what happened at the event, but at least he was clever about the way he went about it.

That changed once another account challenged Krassenstein, asserting that he was more angry with alternative media sources that had revealed the truth than he was with adults who flashed children in the streets. The journalist quickly replied, “Seeing a man naked on a bike isn't going to have much of an impact on any kid. They have likely see their father or bother [sic] naked before.” Krassenstein would later attempt to backtrack, stating that he opposed the men exposing themselves to children, but it was too late. The initial reaction painting the incident as insignificant had already revealed his true position.

Chants of “We’re coming for your children” were heard repeatedly at this year’s New York City Drag March. The phrase become infamous after a video of the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus singing a song with those lyrics went viral in 2021. As you might imagine, the normalization of this phrase among LGBTQ activists had many parents understandably concerned. NBC news decided to smooth over public relations by running a piece explaining that “We’re coming for your children” is a phrase that gay rights activists have been chanting for years and that there was nothing new about its usage at Pride events. Again, this article was meant to inform parent that their concerns were unfounded because Pride attendees had been chanting “We’re coming for your children” for a very long time.

The cycle of normalization has repeated so often that by now every conservative should be able to identify the phases on sight.

Step one: Claim nothing is happening and paint those who notice as conspiracy theorists. Step two: Acknowledge that some isolated incidents may be happening, but assert that those who notice are motivated by bigotry. Step three: Admit that yes it might be happening, but claim that most people do not really oppose it and that focusing on it is the real problem. Step four: Openly force celebration of the fact that it was always happening by threatening the livelihood of anyone who opposes you. We are firmly in the “Okay maybe gay men are regularly exposing themselves to children in public, but it’s fine actually” phase of the normalization discourse, and things will only accelerate from here.

Honestly, it is somewhat tiring to continually hear those who ask how we could have gotten this far. We know exactly how we got this far. America was warned repeatedly by the religious right what this path would look like, what would happen when the critical foundations of morality and tradition were demolished. But the prophecies came from those who had been coded as old, low-class, and desperately uncool, so they were discarded and mocked.

These predictions were characterized as ridiculous hyperbolic fantasies, illogical slippery-slope arguments made by ignorant and backward people. The slippery slope has remained undefeated, however, as prediction after prediction has come to pass. It should surprise absolutely no one that removing every traditional barrier around sexuality would eventually lead to a culture in which adults expose themselves to children with reckless abandon.

In 2021 the Washington Post ran an article by Lauren Rowello titled, “Yes, kink belongs at Pride. And I want my kids to see it.” The article was met with outrage, but two years later the position has become thoroughly mainstreamed. LGTBQ identities are sexual by their very nature. When those like Takei or Rowello characterize obscene public sexual displays as self-expression integral to those identities, perhaps it is time for conservatives to stop arguing with the activists and listen to what is being said. The truth might be uncomfortable, but if progressives are willing to loudly declare it and conservatives refuse to face it, then who is at fault? Fox News might be selling "Caitlyn Jenner conservatism," but this strategy is just as doomed to fail as the weak and cowardly half-measures that came before.

So I come to you with what has, in the year of our Lord 2023, become a radical proposal: Adults exposing themselves to children in public should be a serious crime, one that lands them in jail and makes them unable to interact with children for the rest of their lives. This should be the case even if it happens during the state-sanctioned holy month of Pride. Sheriffs or police chiefs who do not stop this behavior should be removed and prosecuted for child endangerment. People should fear the legal and social consequences of exposing themselves to kids. There should be no discourse around the issue. Progressives will probably declare this position bigoted and intolerant, but I really could not care less. If those who oppose wokeness think things are bad now, they have no idea what is coming. As shocking as it may seem that parents are celebrating as grown men publicly expose themselves to their children, it is important to understand that we are nowhere near the bottom of the slippery slope. But on our current trajectory, we will inevitably arrive at that incredibly dark and dangerous destination.
