Why “Gay Pride” parades, events?

June 22, 2019

Deviancy goes mainstream 

The far-left Arizona Republic can’t devote enough space to homosexual or gender-bending entertainers, films, exhibits or activists. The steam powers the failing newspaper in the same manner Robert Fulton used steam technology to power river boats and war ships.

The Republic, previously led by Randy Lovely, acclaimed in the Advocate as the first openly gay chief editor and VP of News in the nation, devoted two pages to what it terms, “an international treasure,” and “a thoughtful cultural critic,” who is appearing for two performances in Phoenix this weekend.  Self identified as “gender fluid,” the entertainer no longer embraces “transvestite.”

The newspaper also gave Page One coverage, including an above-the-fold photo, to an illegal “immigration activist” who is being “honored as a Champion of Pride.” Not only is he illegal himself, but works to bring more illegals into the USA and is celebrated for it and for his homosexuality.

In 1980 the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of the American Psychiatric Association dramatically reversed its position that homosexuality is a behavioral disorder after being pressured by the Association of Gay and Lesbian Psychiatrists, now known as The Association of LGBTQ Psychiatrists.

if homosexuality is nothing more than the new norm, or an “alternative lifestyle,” what’s to celebrate?  LGBTQ+ has become the accepted acronym to describe every facet of what was medically described as perversion and today is mainstreamed and acculturalizing our children, permeating every aspect of their education and entertainment.

Dating back to 2008, Michelle Malkin showcased the San Francisco Folsom Street festivities that were actual celebrations of deviancy, featuring public sex acts, that resulted in no arrests — due to participants being members of a now not only protected — but celebrated class. She compares the “whitewashing” of the event by the San Francisco Chronicle to the reality to which she links. Malkin warns the readers: Don’t click if you have a weak stomach. The warning is necessary.

These events are now scheduled in cities throughout the United States.

Exposing left’s tactics: redefining words to alter culture

May 25, 2019

Today we have a gift for our readers, courtesy of The Federalist.How The Left’s War On Words Manipulates Your Mind,” by Benjamin Dierker pointedly illustrates the politicalization of language in reshaping our society by redefining words.

Those familiar with George Owell’s acclaimed book, “1984” will recognize what he described as “Newspeak,” the language of propaganda, the deliberate replacement of one set of words for another. The intent was to irreparably alter thought, and ultimately the entire culture.

Examples are rampant. The objective of indiscriminately hurling the slur “racist” is to silence Americans who object to hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens invading our sovereign border. Democrats welcome them as a future voting bloc.

The term “denier,” which initially entered the language to refer to someone who denied the monumental evil reality of the Holocaust, is now used to describe those, including many scientists, who don’t ascribe to liberal lockstep thinking on global warming. It morphed into climate change when the weather cooled. The word “lie” is used when a point lacks sufficient evidence, but no lie is actually intended.

Other examples are welcome.


Terrorist’s short term, early release, should be inconceivable

May 23, 2019

In 1953, turning on your country was a crime punishable by death. Ethel, 35, and Julius Rosenberg, 37, the parents of two young sons, were charged with conspiracy to commit espionage.

On March 29, 1951 the couple was found guilty of spying on behalf of the Soviet Union, and were executed in the electric chair on June 19, 1953, although the evidence against Ethel was weak.

Fast forward to 2019. John Walker Lindh, 38, a Californian who converted to Islam at age 16, provided support to the Taliban. He became known as the “American Taliban” after his battlefield capture in Afghanistan in November 2001, where he was fighting with the Afghan Taliban two months after the 9/11 attacks.

On February 5, 2002, Lindh was indicted by a federal grand jury on ten charges of conspiracy, including conspiracy to murder U.S. citizens and providing material support and resources to terrorist organizations. He could have received up to three life sentences and 90 additional years in prison.

Instead, Lindh, who now uses the name Abu Sulayman al-Irland, has preposterously been granted an early release from a federal prison after being sentenced to a paltry 20 years. Lindh is getting out 3 years early for “good behavior,” though his actions resulted in American deaths.

In 2010 Lindh and a Syrian-American prisoner, represented by the ACLU, sued to lift restrictions on group prayer by Muslim inmates. U.S. District Judge Jane Magnus-Stinson, an Obama appointee, ruled in their favor, saying that the government had shown no compelling interest in restricting the religious speech of the inmates by prohibiting them from praying together.

According to an internal report by the National Counterterrorism Center, Lindh told a visiting television news producer that he had not renounced extremist violence and continues to advocate for global jihad, saying, “ISIS,” the terrorist group that beheaded Americans, “is doing a spectacular job.”

The burning question is, what can we expect next as this America-hater is free?


Associated Press’ 2019 guidelines veer further left

April 9, 2019

Reporters instructed on retooling language in an effort to reconfigure attitudes

It’s not just about grammar and capitalization conundrums. Nope. Those zany folks at Associate Press are hard at work attempting to recraft your attitudes via 2019 stylebook guidelines. Though President Trump is not specifically mentioned, anti-Trumpism is always bubbling beneath the surface in news coverage.

The terms “racist” and “racism” are deserving of their own chapter. It is 2019, after all, and the stylebook’s audience is aimed at reporters who put a premium on dividing us according to ethnicity. African American has lost its dash with the removal of the hyphen. Americans who prefer to just be Americans are out’a luck. Are you unfamiliar with the term “Latinx?” It’s the gender-neutral or nonbinary alternative to Latino or Latina. AP is not simply a news agency. It also constructs language.

Illogically the focus on race is followed up with, “Consider carefully when deciding whether to identify people by race. Often, it is an irrelevant factor and drawing unnecessary attention to someone’s race or ethnicity can be interpreted as bigotry.”

In 2013, SRAZ posted,Winston Smith: Alive and well at Associated Press. “

That was followed in 2017 byAP reconfigures language, tries to control thinking — again,” in which the stylebook urged journalists to avoid making references in news stories that suggest there are only two sexes in the human race.

In 2010, the Diversity Committee of the Society of Professional Journalists called on news reporters nationwide to stop using the term “illegal immigrant” in their news coverage —- preferring “undocumented workers” or “undocumented immigrants.”

As early as 2008, at the height of the war on terror, we exposed the absurd guidelines from the Society of Professional Journalists, which called for grouping white supremacists and “radical anti-abortionists” with Islamic terrorists. Jihad was not only verboten, it was sympathetically referred to as “exert[ing] oneself for the good of Islam and to better oneself.” None dare call it what it is: A militant Islamic movement threatening Western civilization.

These two gems were specific in their instructions:

– When writing about terrorism, remember to include white supremacist, radical anti-abortionists and other groups with a history of such activity.

– Use photos and features to demystify veils, turbans and other cultural articles and customs.

The 2019 stylebook’s lead editor Paula Froke, slickly states, “Our first audience is journalists, but the audience is very broad.”

The indisputable fact is, American citizens are the intended audience for the double speak and attitude adjustments. The majority of what you see and hear is fabricated with these leftist threads. Students are inundated with it from kindergarten through graduate school. What was once heralded as the free press, has grotesquely transmogrified to purveyors of mind control.


Leftist New Zealand PM irrationally blames guns for massacre

March 18, 2019

Gun restrictions are coming to low crime New Zealand

Following the horrific massacre killing at least 50 people and wounding another 50 in terror attacks targeting two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, the government has responded with exactly the wrong message. In this Guardian article, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern is gushingly and favorably compared to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortes.

PM Jacinda Ardern — now wearing a wearing hijab, in a sign of solidarity — has announced New Zealand’s government will reform the country’s gun laws in the wake of last Friday’s carnage. The hate-based slaughter of Islamic worshippers in was perpetrated by 28-year-old Brenton Tarrant, an Australian, who is a self-described white supremacist. He is in police custody.

Speaking after her weekly cabinet meeting, PM Ardern stated that government ministers had agreed “in principle” to reform gun laws. “Within 10 days of this horrific act of terrorism we will have announced reforms which will, I believe, make our community safer,” she said.

How much safer?  According the New Zealand police, there were 69 total murders with a firearm between Jan.1, 2008 and Dec. 31, 2017 in the entire nation.

Obviously New Zealand is reeling from the unspeakable assault perpetrated by a vicious criminal. Yet vowing to enact tighter gun laws is not the answer. Had some of the people in the mosques been armed, they would have been able to respond to the murderous rampage. Gun restrictions only impact the law abiding. Those intent on evil will always find a way to carry it out. We’ve already witnessed vicious knifings and intentional vehicular homicides perpetrated in Europe. The United Kingdom has some of the toughest gun control laws in the world.

The U.K.’s Sun newspaper in an article headlined, “Endless Knife Crime,” reported the total number of attacks involving a knife or bladed instrument recorded in 2018 rose 16 percent to 40,147, a seven-year-high.

London’s Telegraph News covered the lengthy series of intentional vehicular homicides in this report headlined, “Europe from Westminster to Nice: Vehicle rampage attacks in UK and Europe.” The gruesome list culminated with the July 14, 2016 Bastille Day slaughter in which 87 celebrants, including families with children, were killed and 458 were injured near the seafront of Nice, France, when a lorry was intentionally driven into the crowd. No gun was used to perpetrate this mass slaughter.

Watch this interview with Second Amendment attorney Stephen Halbrook, as he explains the current generous local gun laws in New Zealand, which is a peaceable society.


Ed Supe Kathy Hoffman proves too much is never enough

February 6, 2019

Hoffman’s ‘State of Education’ speech demands additional teacher’s salary increases, as she thumbs her nose at 20% raises

It was easy enough to miss — but Democrat Kathy Hoffman, Arizona’s newly elected Superintendent of Public Instruction, delivered her fledgling State of Education speech.

A committed leftist, her campaign of smoke and mirrors promised a sound education benefiting Arizona’s school children, many of whom are in ESL classes and not up to speed in the basics. Yet Hoffman regards sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression, including clear policies, support groups, and activities for LGBTQ students on the top of her list.  Her campaign website stated, “Welcoming family diversity promotes exclusivity and must be a priority for our state.”

Hoffman’s intransigent opposition to charter schools is abundantly clear, with these irrational words addressing her fears, “I do not support the expansion of ESA vouchers and will be voting NO on Prop 305 come November. If passed, Prop 305 would further defund our public schools. This is terrifying.”

The proposition was ultimately defeated by the public school teachers’ union activists* who couldn’t compete with the proliferation of excellent Charter Schools and want to deny parents choice in the education of their own children. While public school teachers went out on strike, none of the charter or parochial school teachers joined their Socialist-led parade.

Paid month’s long maternity and paternity leave is another of the policies Hoffman advocates, saying such plans would help retain teachers. Apparently working a part-time job, with lengthy holiday vacation days and summer’s off isn’t enough of an enticement.

Kathy Hoffman notes she “proudly voted to walk out” with her fellow #REDSforEd striking teachers who abandoned a reported 840,000 Arizona students for over a week in violation of their contractual agreements as they followed Socialist Pied Piper Noah Karvelis a 24-year-old hip hop music teacher and avowed Socialist. She says she was “inspired by unity within the movement.”

Lacking any leadership experience, Hoffman has spent more time as a student than as a teacher, having taught preschool for two years and two additional years as a years as a speech therapist.

After initially rejecting the outrageous demands for a 20% pay increase for their part-time jobs, Gov. Doug Ducey caved in to their threats while lying about the lack of a tax increase, using inventive language to deceive Arizona taxpayers.

We’ve been had…by politicians of both parties.

Odd border comparisons underscore news dishonesty

December 27, 2018

“Mormon migration” was never illegal. LDS settlers were American citizens

The local newspaper is up to its trickery again. This one is so bizarre readers can be excused for wondering when the punch line was coming, thinking it was a gag —- as in funny story, not retch. April is months away, but this could have passed as the intro to an April Fools’ joke.

The Arizona Republic is simply reprising its old antics, but with a new twist. The difference between illegal aliens invading and Americans relocating is clear.

Reporter Dustin Gardiner begins his article about a proposed bell monument with these words:

Tens of thousands of Arizonans trace their roots in the state back to a mass migration of Mormon settlers, who made a harrowing journey from Utah over a century ago.

They walked hundreds of miles, through rugged desert and winding red-rock canyons. The most perilous portion of the journey came when they crossed the Colorado River, then a raging force without dams. At Lees Ferry, the only safe crossing between Utah and Arizona for hundreds of miles, they ferried or floated countless wagons and livestock across the untamed river.

They made the fraught journey in search of fertile farmland and new opportunity, directed by leader Brigham Young. Many had already fled religious persecution in the Midwestern United States. Today, the legacy of that migration can be seen throughout eastern and southern Arizona, where they established communities like Mesa, Gilbert, Safford and Snowflake.

It’s the sixth paragraph where the bell, being considered for a state monument, is described as being used at the Lee’s Ferry schoolhouse.

The obvious scheme is to entice readers to make the comparison to thousands of Guatemalans, Hondurans, and El Salvadorans caravanning from Central American through Mexico to breach the U.S. border, waving flags of their native countries and hurling rocks and bottles at ICE border agents as they stampede our border. Make no mistake, the magnet is birthright citizenship.

Drawing parallels between Mormon settlers and illegal aliens is the driving farce of this force — not a typo. The Mormons were Americans. There is a vast difference between invaders and Americans moving from one place to another. Facilitating moves within your own nation is how the Schoen family who founded the U-Haul trailer and truck rental empire became billionaires.

It’s easy to envision members of the open borders editorial board thinking this comparison was nothing short of sheer brilliance, especially on the heels of U.S. Rep. Luis Gutierrez’ (D-IL) sneering rant (brief video) comparing the birth of the Christ child to illegals, though he admittedly had his facts skewed. He then rudely walked out of the hearing before the response from U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen.

The AZ Republic, which inventively used the word “seekers” in place of the overused and erroneous “migrant,” in a recent front page headline, gets it wrong again.
