    Christy Leung is a 21-year-old college student from Hong Kong. She feels threatened by Chinese censorship these days — but she doesn’t even live in Hong Kong right now. Instead, she attends the University of Queensland in Australia. Recently, when she and other students from Hong Kong organized a peaceful rally on campus to support the anti-extradition bill protesters in Hong Kong, they were met by a pro-Beijing counterprotest. A video shows some of the Chinese nationalists resorted to physical violence in order to shut down students from Hong Kong. According to a New York Times report, “A student...

    All your interests are belong to us. There was previous discussion of how Beijing would respond if/when their economic interests were challenged. In essence, the prediction was that China would drop the panda mask and revert back to their oppressive totalitarian tendencies.It is an interesting dynamic because the more the communist state moves to punish and control western business interests, the less likely any western investment flows into China. Its a simple question: Why would anyone want to engage a business relationship inside a totalitarian system that could move at any moment to control your business? (South China Post) China...
  • Political correctness propaganda on TV (Totalitarian modern left politicizes everything)

    I was watching netflix last night I saw there was a new season of slasher. The first two seasons weren't too bad so decided to give number three a shot. The show starts rolling along and there's a hijab wearing Muslim female high school student. Shes as sweet as can be. She helps a man in need. We soon find out the man she helped is a "gasp" white supremacist who secretly hates Muslims. Soon after that the slasher strikes, beheading a victim. At that point the slutty daughter of the "gasp" white supremacist attacks the poor wonderful Muslim girl,...

    UK companies failing to tackle climate change would be delisted from the London Stock Exchange under radical plans for greening the economy being drawn up by Labour. John McDonnell, the shadow chancellor, said he would consider changing the law if necessary to force UK-listed firms to take adequate steps to fight the climate emergency facing the planet....

During the promotion, customers received free bacon with any order. The demonstration saw to doctors holding red-and-yellow signs reading #BreakUpWithBacon, Colorectal Cancer: Im Riskin It, and Bacon Causes Butt Cancer outside of a Washington DC McDonalds restaurant. PCRM also handed out colorectal cancer screening kits.

    American Thinker ^ | January 12, 2019 | Bruce Deitrick Price
    What exactly is a socialist? You could spend all day studying encyclopedias and not settle anything. Using various definitions, you could probably prove that anybody is or isn't a socialist. So let's talk to a socialist. Ignore the verbiage and look inside his head. When someone announces to the world, "I'm a socialist," what is that person thinking? With this focus, everything becomes simpler. Socialists may not be able to claim experience, learning, smarts, or success. But they make up for all that by a boundless certitude about philosophical and political matters. It's as if they, albeit atheists, are guided...

    [...] Growing up as a conservative Christian, I was warned about secular, liberal relativism. Nothings really bad, who knows, its all relative. We had to be careful about such slippery slopes. After the gays got us to buy into such poor logic, then would come the goats, then the children, then the Satan worship would follow. But it turns out that this sort of relativism is entirely a myth of the right. The only people who ever try to implore relative logic (at this sort of crass level) are conservatives. Trying to play "gotcha" with liberals. And its exhausting. I...

    Tech-industry juggernauts Apple, Samsung and Huawei each have their own unique and strategic (yet often hilarious) way of taunting one anothers flagship devices. But amid recent events like the uncertain state of U.S. China Trade relations and arrest of the firms Chief Financial Officer, Meng Wanzhou, the riff between Chinas Huawei Technologies Co. and U.S.-based Apple, Inc. has escalated far beyond their typical friendly-fire. Some 20+ Chinese firms have already urged their employees to boycott Apple products and, in retaliation, encourage them to buy from Huawei instead. Most firms partaking of these anti-Apple boycotts are reportedly offering their employees up...

    Born on December 7, 1928, Noam Chomsky was raised by Ashkenazi Jewish immigrants in Philadelphia. Though his father was a Hebrew scholar who studied medieval grammar, Chomsky lacked direction through school and university and only committed to the study of linguistics when he took up a post at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in 1955. It wasn't long, however, before the young unknown scholar single-handedly revolutionized the field of linguists, his book Syntactic Structures (1957) kickstarting his concept of "transformational grammar" that argued contrary to the behaviourist fad of the time that our linguistic capacity is genetic...

    In a world that the identity politics has wrought, lived experience is a trump (apologies for the use of a triggering word) card: your viewpoint or opinion on an issue is automatically deemed invalid or at least less valid and valuable if youre not a member of a group whose plight is being discussed. Men cant really know what its like to be women, white people cant really know what its like to be people of colour, the straight ones cant really know what its like to have other sexual orientations. Your identity is your argument; You wouldnt know what...

    The thought of Karl Marx, a German political agitator whose theory of scientific socialism wreaked havoc on the world for most of the 20th century, would seem to have been consigned to the ash heap of history following the fall of the Eastern Bloc communist regimes from 1989 to 1991. After decades of mass murder claiming tens of millions of victims, as well as the totalitarian oppression of hundreds of millions more, the reputation of Marxism had been destroyed almost completely, seemingly assuring its final demise.However, a resurgence of interest in Marxs thought has been ongoing since 2008, when the...

    In the latest episode of Banished! by the Peoples Republic of California, Governor Jerry Brown is likely to sign a bill that prohibits restaurants from offering anything other than milk or water with their kids meals, under the pretense of preventing obesity. Effectively theyre telling parents theyre not capable of being trusted with their childrens health. Its Big Brother Knows Best vs. mom and dad. They want to control what little Johnny and Susie drink with their kids meal. If restaurants dont play along they could be fined up to $500. So now California isnt just the nanny state, its...

    Its now illegal in California to shower and do laundry on the same day, my husband read out loud to me a few weeks ago. How are they going to police that? I wondered. It doesnt matter, he replied. California is so out of touch with reality that it just doesnt matter anymore. It saddens me to watch my former home state implode, but thats precisely what is happening. California has been called the worlds largest insane asylum, and as headline piles upon headline illustrating the latest madness, the description seems apt. Its no wonder people are fleeing the Golden...

Thanosthe chief antagonist of the filmis, of course, a murderous thug. He has tremendous power and is bent on having things his way. And his way means killing off half of the universe.

They set in motion a chain of events that would kill millions and inflict a near-fatal wound on Western civilization. The revolutionaries capture of train stations, post offices and telegraphs took place as the city slept and resembled a changing of the guard. But when residents of the Russian capital awoke, they found they were living in a different universe.Although the Bolsheviks called for the abolition...

    It's a self-evident truth that fascism, Nazism, etc., are godless, evil, mass-murdering totalitarian ideologies as all freedom loving, non-brainwashed Americans readily admit. How many millions of people must be slaughtered in the name of communism and how many times must they threaten the entire free world with total annihilation until the brainwashed democrats denounce godless Marxism as evil and anti-American? Likewise, how many millions of unborn babies will be offered on the altar of "woman's choice" before they realize abortion is an evil, godless abomination? The Nazi's were and are an evil, godless, mass-murdering totalitarian ideology. The Communists were and...

    A "progressive parent" friend of mine was recently expressing enthusiasm over the fact that his children had taken to reading Young Adult dystopian novels. They were dying to see the new feature film adaptation of the book The Giver (see Sarah Palin's review, here), after having ploughed through the quartet of bestselling books by Lois Lowry. They had absorbed the blockbuster film adaptations of Divergent and The Hunger Games and had hungrily consumed the associated merchandise . They'd also made hundreds of new friends from all over the world who "shared" the same passion for dystopian teen icons Katniss, Tris...

    Families, societies, cultures and nations are based on agreed ground rules of behavior. John Locke called this The Social Contract. Recognizing that Man is not inherently good, we agree to give up a few freedoms in order to live in a law-abiding society that recognizes individual rights. These laws enforce good behavior on both government and individuals whose selfishness and lust for power would take our rights if allowed. Some believe that people cant handle freedom and must be forced to act against their own freedom For The Common Good. This goes back to Plato where a ruling elite decides...

There is a place in America where civil rights dont exist. The First Amendment doesnt apply. Neither does the Sixth Amendment. (Never mind the Second.)
