Jesse Lee Peterson: WILL YOUTUBE BE CENSORING YOU TOO NEXT?

Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson shreds far-left Big Tech reeking with intolerance

by Jesse Lee Peterson

After Vox host Carlos Maza, a radical homosexual who hates Christian conservatives, wrote a viral Twitter thread whining to YouTube about being harassed by conservative YouTube personality Stephen Crowder and his followers, YouTube demonetized my channel and purged many conservatives on its platform. Just a day earlier, YouTube had said in a series of tweets that Crowder’s alleged harassment of Maza (which consisted of jokes and parodies) did not violate its policies.

YouTube claimed it was updating its policy to ban videos espousing neo-Nazism, “white supremacy” and other “bigoted views.” The company also said it was changing its recommendation algorithm to reduce the spread of misinformation and conspiracy theories.

The censorship of conservative and independent view points by the liberal mainstream media has fostered the massive growth of conservative and alternative voices on YouTube. The tech giant’s attempt to purge these voices should exhort free thinkers to create new and better platforms.

Ironically, YouTube demonetized my channel minutes after taking down two of my videos condemning anti-Jewish hatred by Muslim Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and fringe white extremists who hate Jews. Other influential conservative and independent voices targeted by YouTube for censorship include my friends at PragerU, Stefan Molyneux, Gavin McInnes and others who expose left-wing lunacy and promote American values and exceptionalism. PragerU has filed a lawsuit to stop Google and YouTube from unlawfully censoring its educational videos and discriminating against its right to freedom of speech.

Order Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson’s book, “The Antidote: Healing America from the Poison of Hate, Blame, and Victimhood.”

My channel and many others demonetized by YouTube do not spread hate. Every day on my daily radio broadcast (streamed live on YouTube) I tell people to stop blaming and hating others. I repudiate all hatred, blame, and victimhood. In fact, I wrote an entire book on how to overcome it. I rebuke callers on my radio show who harbor hatred toward Jews, whites, blacks or any other group. I encourage them to drop their anger and forgive so they can go free.

What YouTube is doing is outright censorship. It’s no secret that YouTube and its parent company Google support far-left causes. YouTube supports “gay pride” parades and celebrates homosexual and transgender creators, and its chief executive endorsed Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election. President Trump and other conservatives have openly criticized YouTube and other social media networks for their bias against conservative views, and this latest censorship move is a prime example of their bias.

The “adpocalypse” targeted mostly conservative and right leaning YouTube creators, but it’s being applied in such a broad and sloppy manner that even channels that chronicle historical videos of Nazis have been demonetized or banned for having the footage on their channels.

By demonetizing channels, YouTube is restricting conservative creators from running ads and blocking “Super Chats” (which allows viewers to donate during live streams and have their comments highlighted). YouTube is choking the lifeblood of content creator’s ability to make money off their videos.

The mainstream media and big tech companies like Google and YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and others call conservatives “hateful” while they actively empower and embolden radical LGBT social justice activists who are the real haters. Vox host Carlos Maza and the radical LGBT employee/activists at YouTube who agitated and pressured YouTube to censor and ban conservatives are the true bigots. They always spout off about “love” and “inclusion,” but they are the intolerant and hateful ones.

Jesse Lee Peterson: YOUR LEADERS NEVER CARED ABOUT YOU

Jesse Lee Peterson offers the only hope for America

by Jesse Lee Peterson

I want people to understand that no one cares about them.

People live under a false illusion that their leaders care about them. Preachers, politicians, and parents – they don’t care about you. They care about themselves. Parents don’t care about their children; they’re emotional, egotistical, selfish and screw up their kids! Pastors knowingly mislead their flock by telling them that they can continue to sin and yet know God – because they themselves still sin. And we all know that the government does not care at all for the people. Politicians and bureaucrats support death and destruction, for power and wealth.

In truth, it’s not anyone else’s job to care about you. Only you should care about yourself, and let God take care of you. Your parents did the best they could in raising you, and came up short. You have to forgive them, and become an independent man or woman of God. You cannot trust the preacher or Bible scholar to lead you to God; many of them don’t know God. “Let no man teach you.” No other person can save you. You must seek first the Kingdom of Heaven, repent and know the truth for yourself.

Look at the black community to see the destruction that results from looking to others to care about you. At one time, blacks were independent, not looking to the government for help. Men were leading the homes, and “racism” was never uttered. Most blacks voted Republican, owned businesses, land and homes, worked and did not complain. Blacks were responsible and moral. I never heard of abortion while growing up. Out-of-wedlock births were a shame, not accepted; and blacks weren’t known for welfare, drugs and crime.

All of this changed after the horrible mistake of the Civil Rights movement.

Today, blacks are constantly crying “racism” for everything, begging to be included in whites’ institutions based on being black, and then turning and attacking the whites! You won’t find God in a black church, but you might find a pro-abortion Democrat politician speaking. Blacks still pretend to be Christians, but kill 1 in 3 of their children in the womb. Black mothers run the homes, raising angry kids, many of whom go out and kill more blacks and others. Blacks blame police when a black criminal gets himself killed running from, or fighting with, the officers.

Order Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson’s book, “The Antidote: Healing America from the Poison of Hate, Blame, and Victimhood.”

Blacks vote for Democrats who bring in truckloads of illegal aliens to take over blacks’ jobs, schools and healthcare, and force blacks out of their communities. They have to compete with the “immigrants” for free stuff, and for decades endless fights between blacks and Hispanics have been ignored by the media. Blacks are too dumb to realize they vote for their own destruction because they’re told it’s “white racists” who want to keep the illegals out. Now blacks openly hate the one president who’s actually fighting for them, trying to build a wall and send the illegals back home.

Everyone evil uses black people to advance their own agenda – the illegal aliens, the feminist women who hate men, the radical homosexuals and transgender activists. Planned Parenthood pretends to care about black women, fighting to keep killing black children in the womb, all for the money. At one point blacks knew homosexuality was wrong; today Hollywood and the media promote black homosexuals and transgenders to validate wrong as though it’s right. (If the children of the lie actually cared about so-called “LGBT” people, they’d tell them the truth instead of going along with them.)

Now the rest of the country is following in the same path to destruction as the blacks. You have most Millennials and Generation Z believing in socialism, looking to the government to take care of them. Hispanics produce more out-of-wedlock children than blacks, falling to gangs and crime, and taking a cue from blacks by always crying “racism.” Older whites continue to be “nice” while “people of color” walk all over them, so younger whites abandon Christianity and morality, identifying instead with race. White cowardice and anger is resulting in drugs, suicide and increasing death and violence.

We desperately need to rebuild men, who in turn must rebuild families, if we want to save this country from descending into chaos and destruction. Men and women of character raise strong children who are not easily influenced by the media, corrupt schools, bad friends and the outside world. Good men stand against evil and overcome it, in their private lives and in their communities. They protect their children from the emotions of angry mothers, and lead their wives instead of caving to them for sex and false peace. Today, most men are beta males who think and act like women.

This is why I started my nonprofit BOND more than 29 years ago, dedicated to “Rebuilding the Family by Rebuilding the Man.” (We’re holding our 10th annual Men’s Conference the evening before Father’s Day in Los Angeles.)

Thank God, young men of all races are waking up, forgiving, and going free – no longer dependent on comfort, drugs or women. They’re returning to morality, strength and common sense. There is hope for America.

Alex Newman: Harvard Diversity Speaker: Christians & Jews Should Be “Locked Up”

by Alex Newman

Activist Tim Wise spoke at Harvard University’s annual “diversity” conference despite having said that Christians and Jews who believe the Bible “deserve to be locked up” due to an alleged “utter inability to deal with reality.” He later claimed to be “sorta kidding but not by much.” People of faith also should be “politically destroyed” and “deserve to be mocked viciously and run out of the public square,” he said.

The anti-Christian, anti-Semitic bigot, who styles himself an “antiracist essayist,” was the keynote speaker on April 25 at an annual “diversity” conference at Harvard Faculty of Arts and Sciences. Dubbed “A Decade of Dialogue,” the event, ironically, was supposed to provide “a retrospective look at diversity and inclusion, a discussion of current issues, and practical guidance on how we can move toward greater inclusion and belonging at Harvard.”

Presumably that “inclusion” does not apply to Christians, Jews, or even Muslims. Indeed, Wise — a straight white male, as The College Fix observed — has a long history of publicly expressing vitriolic hatred against people of faith. Harvard, however, described him as “a prominent anti-racism writer, educator, and activist.”

Consider some comments he made in 2015. “This is America…people basing their beliefs on the fable of Noah and Ark, or their interpretation of Sodom and Gomorrah…rather than science or logic…If you are basing your morality on a fairy tale written thousands of years ago, you deserve to be locked up…detained for your utter inability to deal with reality,” he said, with the ellipses all included in the original post.

“NO, we are not obligated to indulge your irrationality in the name of your religious freedom,” Wise continued. “But we will provide you a very comfortable room, against which walls you may hurl yourself hourly if your choose. Knock yourself out….seriously, knock yourself out, completely, for weeks at a time.”

After spewing his venom, he added, “I’m sorta kidding but not by much.” Then he proceeded to disgorge even more hatred. “I do think they have to be politically destroyed, utterly rendered helpless to the cause of pluralism and democracy,” he said. “They have no right to impose their bullshit on others. They can either change, or shut the hell up, or practice their special brand of crazy in their homes…or go away.”

He also made clear that he hates Muslims and other people of faith, too. “And this argument applies to any fundamentalist religionist of any faith who thinks they have a right to impose their beliefs on a secular, pluralistic society,” he said. “Go away.” It was not immediately clear why he felt entitled to impose his moral beliefs on society, or what his source of moral beliefs actually is.

Keep in mind that this anti-Christian extremist, who regularly and viciously demonizes Christians with terms such as “extremist Jeezoids,” spoke at a university that was literally founded to help spread the Gospel of Christ. Harvard’s original mission statement put it well: “Let every student be plainly instructed, and earnestly pressed to consider well, the main end of his life and studies is to know God and Jesus Christ which is eternal life (John 17:3), and therefore to lay Christ in the bottom, as the only foundation of all sound knowledge and learning.”

The Takeaway

The hatred against Christians and biblical morality is getting progressively more extreme, and most of it is due to the so-called “education” system. That Harvard would invite a violently hateful individual like Wise to give a keynote address is merely a sign of the times. And it is getting worse. If the government-sponsored anti-Christian indoctrination continues, the unhinged hate will increasingly move from rhetoric to action. Christians must be prepared.

Jesse Lee Peterson: WHY CHRISTIANS ARE LOSING THEIR COUNTRY

Jesse Lee Peterson blasts left for attacking people for telling truth

by Jesse Lee Peterson

America is a Christian nation, but that fact has been under attack by the children of the lie. The left has pushed immorality to the point we have so-called “same-sex marriage” and “transgender” nonsense trampling the rights of Christians. “People of color” and “women” join the attack on freedom of speech and our rights to self-defense. Good people are accused of “hate speech,” punished for telling the truth in public – or even in private!

Christians, men and especially white people are under attack. Christians are forced to bake “gay cakes” for homosexuals pretending to get “married.” Men are falsely accused of “sexual harassment,” “sexual assault” or of being “child molesters” – and they’re not allowed to say the women are lying! Children are abused by women, even killed in the womb, and the man can’t do anything to protect his children. White people are called “racist” just for loving their country, for telling the truth about “people of color,” or for standing up for white people.

A decade ago, the fallen messiah Barack Obama claimed America is “no longer a Christian nation.” He pushed homosexuality and transgender madness, and took up for Muslims at every opportunity. He was the first “feminist” president, and loved abortion.

Obama attacked whites and police, making blacks feel justified in their anger and false victimhood. He brought Black Lives Matter to the White House – a group worse than the KKK, founded by black lesbians, homosexuals and white “social justice warriors.” They killed the souls of black people by pushing anger, and their attacks on police resulted in an increase in murders around the country.

You cannot be a Christian and support the Democrat Party. After Obama, they’ve only grown more radical, electing far-left Muslims, homosexuals, and women – in order to attack a real men, President Trump. Donald Trump represents everything they hate – the goodness of America. The straight, white, conservative, Christian man of power built this country. But leftists don’t want America to be made great again, so they go after all males, white people, and Christians in order to take down Trump.

Order Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson’s book, “The Antidote: Healing America from the Poison of Hate, Blame, and Victimhood.”

This week, they went after Democrat Joe Biden – Obama’s vice president. They accused him of sexual harassment with no proof. For years, Biden openly kissed and tried to flatter women and little girls in front of cameras – never trying to hide it. But now people impulsively judge him as “creepy,” watching suggestively edited videos that play on the imagination and people’s anti-male brainwashing. In the old days, men warned you to believe none of what you hear, and only half of what you see.

But Biden as a hated “white male” is not welcome in the Democrat Party. They want a woman or a “person of color” to run for president.

Men have been trained by women to show affection, to worship women, make them feel special – but only with “consent.” Meanwhile, women throw themselves on men, hug and kiss men without permission, sexually assault them, and even rape men and young boys. Even Christians join in on this double-standard, in which every man is a suspected “rapist” or “child molester.” At our recent Men’s Forum at my nonprofit BOND, a home contractor said he wears a camera on himself all day to prevent being accused!

The city of Chicago recently elected a black lesbian for mayor. She’s pretending she will end the corruption in the city. But she herself is morally corrupt – she has no values. She’ll go after the Christians, white people and men, and only further destroy the city.

There are homosexuals who are stuck in that lifestyle but know it’s wrong. But this new mayor-elect, Lori Lightfoot, is promoting wrong as right. Similarly, Pete Buttigieg, a homosexual millennial mayorof South Bend, Indiana, is trying to run for president. The corrupt liberal media love him for being shamelessly homosexual. The former mayor of Houston, Annise Parker, is a lesbian with a pretend “wife.” Females on the Supreme Court and in Congress have conducted so-called same-sex “weddings.”

In Ireland, they have a homosexual prime minister who brought his gay “partner” to America for an official event with Vice President Mike Pence. This man, Leo Varadkar, gave a slap in the face to Christians, speaking against “discrimination.” The radical homosexuals are allowed to discriminate against Christians, but not the other way around. There is no freedom.

Christians have lost their countries because Christians are no longer any different from the world. They believe that they can be born again of God and continue to sin. The men are controlled by women – they kiss up to women in their personal lives and in politics. The whites are afraid to tell the truth to the people of color. The Christians have anger in their hearts, playing God – there’s no love in anger, but only fear, doubt, worry and insecurity. Christian parents are sacrificing their children to corrupt schools where kids come out liberal, turning away from God.

If you want your country to be right, you have to be right. As Christ said, you must become perfect as the Father in heaven is perfect.

Bill Lockwood: Spiritual Guidance & Modern Superstition

by Bill Lockwood

In Mexico, and in Mexican communities in places such as Los Angeles, there’s a lively movement of prayer to Santa Muerte, Saint Death. You pray to her for protection from the dangers of the night, in the conviction that she can protect you from attack, accident, and violent death. She can also bring trouble to someone who has attacked you unjustly. Prayer to Santa Muerte goes back to the religious life of people in the area before the gospel came to the Americas. (1)

Our modern era is supposed to be a bold new age that has cast off its need for God and the supernatural. According to modernists who signed the Humanist Manifesto’s I & II and the Humanist Manifesto 2000 mankind has outgrown its need for “God.” In reality, however, modernists who reject God eventually opt for the false religious ideas of man—the “god of this age” (2 Corinthians 4:4).

By the “god of this age” the apostle Paul, who penned 2 Corinthians, referred to “all the floating mass of thoughts, opinions, maxims, speculations, hopes, impulses, aims, aspirations at any time current in the world.” (2) These are precisely what are lauded by today’s cultural leaders.

A recent Pew Research study found that a large and growing percentage of Americans believe in reincarnation, astrology, psychics, and the presence of spirits in nature. The shock comes, however, in that not only do 6 in 10 Americans accept these beliefs, but that the numbers are the same among those who are self-professed Christians. Even agnostics have adopted occult ideas.

According to a new research by Trinity College in Connecticut, Wicca is one of the fastest-growing religions in the country. Between 1990 and 2008, it saw a forty-fold increase in the number of adherents. One-and-a-half million Americans now identify as either Wiccan or Pagan. As The Christian Post put it, “Wicca functions as a spiritual patina on progressive politics.” The occult is becoming mainstream in America. Such is a culture that continues to reject God.

Multiculturalism

Multiculturalism is not simply the recognition that there are various cultures in the world, or even represented in the United States. According to Charles Tesconi at the College of Education at the University of Vermont, multiculturalism specifically views “all value systems as equal.” The multicultural view treats all diverse groups and ways of life as equally “legitimate.”  “Moral diversity” is the idea. This multicultural perspective therefore de-values biblical concepts as no more valid than any pagan or heathen belief. This is what is integrated into nearly all areas of public education and entertainment. “Diversity” is the watchword.

An example is the recent Disney movie Coco, a beautifully animated film that celebrates the Mexican tradition known as Dia de Muertos (Day of the Dead). Dia de Muertos has its roots in a “pre-Hispanic commemoration of deceased loved ones that is practiced by some Latin American indigenous populations” (Smithsonian.com). The film “draws its cultural inspiration from several Mexican variations of this tradition, which also happen to be those most commonly found in the United States.”

In the story-line, Miguel, a young boy is transported to the place of the dead in order to speak with his deceased ancestors. Cynthia Vidaurri, the writer of Smithsonian’s review, then asks:

So here is the big question: Did Disney Pixar get it right? My first response is to ask another question, ‘Right by whose standard?’ Are we talking about the indigenous traditions of celebrating ancestors as they were practiced before the arrival of the Europeans? … What about the Day of the Dead that merged with Roman Catholic practices after the arrival of the Europeans in the Americans? What about the Mexican national celebration? What about the Day of the Dead tradition introduced to the U.S. by Mexican Americans during the Chicano Movement of the 1960’s and 1970’s? Or maybe the Day of the Dead Traditions that are practices by recently immigrated Indigenous Latino populations in the U.S.?

The Smithsonian plainly challenges the cultural norm that was once common-stock in America—Christianity. Right by whose standard? There is no ultimate standard to multiculturalists. This is what we are being constantly fed, from the entertainment industry to the schoolhouse where “diversity” reigns. Little wonder that various forms of superstition such as Wicca, occultism, and prayers to Santa Muerte are being practiced. Remove the One True God from the culture and everything else becomes fashionable.

Isaiah 8

Many of Isaiah’s day (8 centuries B.C. in Israel) felt the same way. Turning away from God, however, they turned to superstition. Isaiah, the inspired prophet of God, relates that they sought spiritual guidance from “familiar spirits” and “wizards.” Some of these “chirped” and “muttered” out their instructions. Others among the Israelites assumed that dead people had access to information that was normally inaccessible to the living. They therefore sought to contact “dead people” in Sheol, especially their relatives to get guidance for the future or advice about coping with the crisis at hand—the threats from foreign nations (Isaiah 8:19).

Isaiah “bursts out” against all such occult practices that seek guidance from anything but God. “To the law and to the testimony!—if they will not speak according to His Word, there is no dawn of morning for them!” (8:20). Our culture condemns itself to the night from which there is no morning—if we do not seek spiritual guidance only from God.

Bill Lockwood: Mixing Politics and Religion

by Bill Lockwood

In a letter to his wife Abigail in May, 1780, John Adams famously wrote:

I must study politics and war that my sons may have liberty to study mathematics and philosophy. My sons ought to study mathematics and philosophy, geography, natural history, naval architecture, navigation, commerce, and agriculture, in order to give their children a right to study painting, poetry, music, architecture, statuary, tapestry, and porcelain.

To John Adams the most important element of life was family. His continual service to the nation included that he was a delegate to the Continental Congress, a delegate to the Constitutional Convention, an official Minister to England on behalf of the United States, and the second President of the United States. But this service he considered a “necessary evil” in order that he might enjoy pleasures of family and that his own future generations might enjoy the same.

In our modern era where warnings against “mixing politics and religion” are memorized and repeated without any real deep thought as to why or even what this means, Adams teaches us a few things about it. His keen mind was able to probe the issues of life and distill the principles and realities involved.

In analyzing what Adams meant when he said “I must study politics that my sons may have liberty to study …”, note the following.

What is Politics?

First, what is Politics? Politics simply means the management or administration of society. The word “politics’ is from the Greek word ‘politika’ meaning the “affairs of a city.” It is “the process of making decisions that apply to members of a group” (Wikepedia). Frequently the word “politics” is used negatively, such as in “play politics.” The root idea of the word, however, refers to principles by which people are to be governed.

The question now becomes, by what set of principles shall we govern society? Shall we use biblical principles or humanistic ones? Shall we use God-inspired principles upon which to base human laws, or shall we simply drift off into allowing people to do “what every man thinks is right in his own eyes?” The only issue in our society therefore is whether or not we plan to manage ourselves according to Christian principles.

This applies to a wide variety of social levels: the workplace, the office, the team, the church, or cities and nations; there is even “international politics.” All policies that are adopted in these various groups are called “public policies” precisely because those policies effect others. Once again, these policies will either reflect Christianity or humanism (non-religion).

These facts being so, whence comes the idea that Christian people should remain free from “politics?” Is it somehow inconsistent with biblical values that Christians should not influence public policy?

Freedom Politics is Pro-Family

Returning to Adams’ quote above, note that he was interested in freedom for his family. He wanted to construct a society along Christian principles that by this framework of freedom his family in future generations might continue to enjoy liberty. Specifically, limited government would allow personal freedom to flourish while at the same time curtail dictatorships or top-down controls that destroy freedom.

A sidebar note: Many confuse Roman Catholicism with New Testament Christianity. Not only were the colonists almost 95% Protestant in their belief-systems, but were afraid of Catholicism. The reason for this is clear. Roman Catholicism is an unbiblical political system that was constructed through the centuries to mimic Old World kingdoms such as the Roman. It too, therefore, is dictatorial and stifles freedom. Its record as a tyrannical power is matched only by other forms of government absolutisms.

Adams was well-aware of all of this. This is why that during the tumultuous formation of the United States he felt that he needed to invest time in order to create a political landscape such that allowed freedom to ring—but this was in order that his children might be able to enjoy more pleasurable pursuits. The political machinery of a nation is a direct reflection of religious values and presuppositions that underlie the society. For future family freedom, Christian politics was necessary.

Politics was not just one “hobby” that Adams chose among others he might have chosen, even though that is the casual way people view politics today. Adams showed this by couching it in his word “must.” In other words, politics was his “duty.” It functioned as an obligation. Political freedom is foundational to other freedoms.

To illustrate, Adams used “war.” Those who enjoy freedom and liberty rely on the sacrifices of untold thousands who study war and become warriors. A warriors’ occupation is not like playing sports, or collecting old cars or antiques. Without a fight for freedom, there would be no games to play or antiques to collect. Someone must do this business of war if we are to have pleasures of life. If we were all running for our lives from enemy soldiers, who cares about playing games?

So also is managing people by politics. It is foundational to freedom at large. For this reason, Cicero, the ancient Roman statesman at the time of Julius Caesar, observed: “For there is really no occupation in which human virtue approaches more closely the august function of the gods than that of founding states or preserving those already in existence.”

So exactly. Christians, being correctly informed, can change the character of the political landscape. By bringing the moral standards of Christ into the civic arena, society itself is transformed. The gospel of Christ not only changes lives and hearts of men, but the course of civil government. Why should Christians not be involved in politics?

Bill Lockwood: Democrats: The Anti-God Party of Karl Marx?

by Bill Lockwood

Several recent agendas pushed by the Democrat Party indicate that they are not only the anti-America Party which pushes for Open Borders and a larger socialist confiscation/redistribution program than already exists, but are aggressively adversarial when it comes to belief in God. From chiding judicial nominees who believe in God to removing ‘so help me God’ from oaths—the Democrat Party is adopting the mantle of atheism.

Sen. Cory Booker, for example, recently asked judicial nominee Neomi Rao if she believed that same-sex relationships were immoral. Rao has been nominated to be on the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. She would replace Brett Kavanaugh if confirmed.

Booker pressed her. “So you’re not willing to say here … whether you believe it is sinful for two men to be married, you’re not willing to comment on that?”

Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) asked Amy Coney Barrett, “Do you consider yourself an orthodox Catholic?” in a 2017 hearing. Barret was then a nominee for the 7th Circuit Court. Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) said to Barrett in that same hearing: “The dogma lives loudly within you, and that’s of concern.

Brian Buescher was nominated to be on a district court in Nebraska. His membership in the Catholic Knights of Columbus was something that brought out the hostility of Democrat Senators Mazie Hirono (D-HI) and Kamala Harris (D-CA). The thought patterns of these prominent Democrats is obviously that any sort of Christian belief is a hindrance to public service.

Removing “So Help You God”

Next, as reported by The Hill, the newly-minted Democrat-led House Committee on Natural Resources is seeking to have the words “so help you God” removed from the oath cited by witnesses who testify before the panel. The proposal was originally obtained by Fox News.

The rules proposal states that witnesses that come before the committee during its hearings would be administered the following oath: ‘Do you solemnly swear or affirm, under penalty of law, that the testimony that you are about to give is the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth [so help you God]? According to Fox News, the “so help you God” phrasing is in brackets in red in the draft and indicates that the words are slated for removal.

Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) probably summarized this Democrat-led move with the best critique: “It is incredible, but not surprising, that the Democrats would try to remove God from committee proceedings in one of the first acts in the majority…They really have become the party of Karl Marx.”

Art. VI. Sec. 3–No Religious Test

Some may suppose that these godless Democrats are in line with the Constitution at Art. VI, sec. 3 which forbids a “religious test” for public officers in government. But this is ignorant of the meaning of the Constitution.

Article VI of the Constitution gives Americans several General Provisions. One of them involves an “Official Oath” that is to be required of Senators and Representatives and all “executive and judicial officers, both of the United States and of the several states.” They shall be “bound by oath or affirmation to support this Constitution, but no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.”

First, there is to be an ‘oath’ of office. What seems to have escaped the modernist anti-theism approach is that the very nature of an oath assumes that the one giving that oath believes in God. By definition an oath is a solemn “calling upon God to witness the truth of what one says.” In effect it is to say: If I am not telling the truth then I call upon God to strike me down or to punish me

This is why Washington, when taking the first oath of presidential office, added “so help me God.” In the Old Testament an oath was to be taken in God’s name for the same purpose. To “take the Lord’s name in vain” (Exod. 20:7) then, is making a profession in “God’s name” and failing to live up to that profession. Primarily, this involved a legal oath. By extension the command meant “You shall not use the name of God, either in oaths or in common discourse, lightly, rashly, irreverently, or unnecessarily, or without weighty or sufficient cause” (Matthew Henry).

Obviously, by the flippant and irreverent manner in which Americans misuse the name of God has muddied their thinking about Deity and the very nature of an oath. And none are more confused than the Democrats who press for an “oath” without realizing the nature of it.

Second, the oath is itself is a recognition of God. James Iredell, a Justice of the State Supreme Court of North Carolina (1751-1799), during the founding period, commented on Article VI in the following manner.

According to the modern definition of an oath, it is considered a ‘solemn appeal to the supreme being, for the truth of what is said, by a person who believes in the existence of a supreme being and in a future state of rewards and punishments according to that form which will bind his conscience most.’ It was long held that … none but Jews and Christians could take an oath; and heathens were altogether excluded…Men at length considered that there were many virtuous men in the world who had not had an opportunity of being instructed either in the Old or New Testament, who yet very sincerely believed in a supreme being, and in a future state of rewards and punishments…. Indeed, there are few people so grossly ignorant or barbarous as to have no religion at all.

We have reached the point at which the “barbarians” are now running the government from the Democrat side. Iredell explained further pertaining to the oath:

…it is only necessary to inquire if the person who is to take it [the oath] believes in a supreme being and in a future state of rewards and punishments. If he does, the oath is to be administered according to that form which it is supposed will bind his conscience most. It is, however, necessary that such a belief should be entertained, because otherwise there would be nothing to bind his conscience that could be relied on; since there are many cases where the terror of punishment in this world for perjury would not be dreaded.

Third, what then of the No Religious Test? Article VI also states that “there shall be no religious test.” Many of the colonies were established by groups of people who subscribed to certain tenets of various faiths—that is, branches of Protestantism (see Thomas Norton, The Constitution of the United States, 183-84). Their state oaths would automatically exclude at a state level those who had contrary views.

But when it came to the federal government these same delegates insisted that it had no jurisdiction over religious matters. They were particularly fearful that a “federal test might displace existing state test oaths and religious establishments” (David Barton, “A Godless Constitution?: A Response to Kramnick and Moore,” Wallbuilders.com). In other words, the framers believed that religion was a matter better left to individuals and to their respective state governments, not to the federal government. No religious test primarily referred to the various exclusive doctrinal tests at the state level and kept the federal government in a neutral position.

However, whether one believed in God or did not subscribe to general biblical principles was far from what was intended in Art. VI, sec. 3. The idea that America might one day become a “godless state” as the current Democrat Party embodies was not in the framer’s minds. As Richard Dobbs Spaight (1758-1802), a representative from North Carolina to the Constitutional Convention, put it: “I do not suppose an infidel or any such person will ever be chosen to any office unless the people themselves be of the same opinion.”

This is what makes the comments of the Cory Booker’s and Dianne Feinstein’s so distasteful. They are not even in a “neutral position.” Their anti-God agenda, which is reflected across the board in the Democratic Party, is open hostility against Christian principles. Little wonder then that the socialism of Karl Marx appeals to them. It begins upon an atheistic platform.

Bill Lockwood: Catholic High School Students Harassed by Indians & The Liberal Culture

by Bill Lockwood

Covington Catholic high school students waiting for buses to pick them up after participating in the annual March for Life last Friday at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. were accosted by Indians led by Nathan Phillips.

Chanting an American Indian Movement religious song while beating a hand-held drum, Phillips approached the group of teens from Covington, KY, some of whom were wearing MAGA hats, and singling out one white boy, invaded his space continuing to chant. Other Indians joined Phillips as he confronted the teenagers. The boys appeared to remain calm and respectful.

The incident was recorded and has gone viral. Immediately, a firestorm of hatred was unleashed against the Catholic High School boys by the Main Stream Media, actors, and politicians for the boys’ supposed terrible treatment of “Native Americans.”

MSNBC announced that “Covington High School students wearing MAGA hats surrounded and taunted a Native American man as he performed the ‘American Indian Movement’ song about strength and courage.” How dare he!!

Reza Aslan tweeted: “An honest question: Have you ever seen a more punchable face than this kids’?” So much for toning down the rhetoric in America. In another tweet he referred to the boys as a “frothing mass of MAGA youth.”

Bishop Talbert Swan, an American prelate of the Church of God in Christ, referred to the students as “racist little white punks in MAGA hats spawned from the seeds of white supremacists harassed, mocked and ridiculed a Native American elder.” Talbert seems to be trying to get in front of the liberal hate-fest and lead it.

Jack Morrissey wrote, “#MAGA kids go screaming, hats first, into the wood-chipper.” He illustrated it with a bloody image.

Kathy Griffin wrote, “Name these kids. I want NAMES. Shame them.” The insinuation here is frightening.

Alyssa Milano added, “Without white boys being able to empathize with other people, humanity will continue to destroy itself.”

Not to be outdone, Rep. John Yarmuth (D-KY) intoned: “I am calling for a total and complete shutdown of teenagers wearing MAGA hats until we can figure out what is going on. They seem to be poisoning young minds.”

Probably worse than the frenzied rush to judgment by public figures, The Diocese of Covington and Covington Catholic High School hurriedly fell over themselves to apologize to the entire nation for the misconduct of the High School boys.

We condemn the actions of the Covington Catholic High School students towards Nathan Phillips specifically, and Native Americans in general, Jan. 18, after the March for Life, in Washington, D.C. We extend our deepest apologies to Mr. Phillips. This behavior is opposed to the Church’s teachings on the dignity and respect of the human person. The matter is being investigated and we will take appropriate action, up to and including expulsion. We know this incident has tainted the entire witness of the March for Life and express our most sincere apologies to all those who attended the March and all those who support the pro-life movement.

What is the Message?

The message is loud and clear to America. If you are a white conservative male, and especially if you profess Christianity—or if you are a Trump supporter: which is a double jeopardy against you; you are a cancer to society. You have always been the disease; you continue to be the plague that destroys the entire welfare of the planet. That is the plain bold unspoken assumption that moves our un-civilization at this point: there is nothing else that explains how our main stream culture so consistently ran with a patent lie and continues to spin the same negative news cycle on a daily basis.

This assumption also drives the ridiculous accusation of White Privilege that commentators continually chirp.

Some of the afore-mentioned comments about the Catholic boys from public figures are so grotesquely inappropriate as to stoke fires of rage across our nation.  These public figures, including the Congressman, are doing everything but putting guns into the hands of the ignorant minions and pulling the trigger.  To what other action could Kathy Griffith’s or Jack Morrissey’s tweets lead? And it only empowers these leftist haters that those who should bring some adult common-sense to the table—such as the Covington Diocese—are running backwards so quickly that they cannot see facts.

Actually, the Covington Diocese that apologized to Mr. Phillips regarding the incident appears to have been written before any incident occurred. The Diocese probably keeps this apology on hand for any future incident—because it will always be the white male that is blamed—regardless of facts. Any future altercation involving professing Christians will be the Christians’ fault. The cultural message here: “don’t embrace Christianity; we are sorry some people do.”

The same is true on Talbert Swan’s take. Since any controversy or dispute between a minority and a white person –especially if they are wearing a MAGA hat–will be the white person’s fault; don’t wear a MAGA hat. This is exactly what spineless mindless Rep. John Yarmuth said. Stop supporting Trump.

Further, as the Diocese and the Congressman shamed themselves by suggesting eliminating freedom of speech for conservatives, that in itself emboldened the communist-inspired American Indian Movement (AIM) to schedule a protest outside of Covington Catholic High School.  It was later moved to the Archdiocese of Covington.

Lest any question the communist connection of AIM, note that the communist publication People’s World (which began as Daily Worker in 1924), champions AIM as necessary to divide America. The SocailistWorker.org also glorifies the AIM as a socialist movement designed to destroy the United States. The usage of American Indians to this end is clear. From an article published just last August on its website:

As we see a wave of Indigenous resistance on a scale not seen since the 1970s, with the rise of Idle No More in Canada, fights against pipelines at Standing Rock and countless other locations and the #NativeLivesMatter movement, its vital for us to learn the radical history of AIM.

The best way to honor that history is to continue to resist and fight racism and discrimination while calling on the U.S. for reparations and self-determination — and to put forward a vision of socialism and Native liberation that ends the exploitation of the earth and the destruction of Indigenous land, and puts the fight against capitalism and settler-colonialism at the core of our resistance.

America is already in the throes of a civil war. Carnal weapons on a bloody field are not yet in use—but not because the left is not seeking to inspire it. The daily news cycle shows one thing: facts do not matter. Only communist ideology of divide and conquer does.

Jesse Lee Peterson: WOMEN VICIOUSLY ATTACK BLACK TRUMP SUPPORTER AT WOMEN’S MARCH

Jesse Lee Peterson – ‘Repeatedly calling me a n-gger!’

by Jesse Lee Peterson

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” – Edmund Burke

This weekend I was physically assaulted at the Women’s March in Los Angeles.

My staff and I attended the march on Saturday, as we have in previous years to do street interviewsfor my web series “The Fallen State TV.” It was a typical Women’s March with a cadre of leftist Democrats (of all races) representing LGBTQ, Planned Parenthood, environmentalists, pro-illegal immigration groups and others radical leftists. Some of the marchers wore pink p—y hats and were screaming obscenities about Donald Trump and the “patriarchy.”

There was one universal theme at the Women’s March in Los Angeles: Donald Trump is bad, and conservative Christian men – especially white men – need to be stripped of their “toxic masculinity” and their “white privilege.”

While I wasn’t surprised by their awful signs and hateful words, this year’s crowd was more hostile toward Trump supporters and anyone else who disagreed with their leftist world view.

The rage and hatred these people have toward President Trump and for his supporters was on full display. During my interview with two feminists (who appeared to be lesbians), I was physically assaulted for supporting the president and the big beautiful border wall. The attack was sudden and violent. One woman repeatedly kicked me while the other physically assaulted me with blows to my head, neck and shoulders. They also threw drinks and liquids on me while repeatedly calling me a n-gger!

Meanwhile, I was surrounded by an angry mob screaming and cursing at me. It was wild, and I was shocked that these leftists were bold enough to attack me in public for being a black Trump supporter. This was a hate crime; these out-of-control feminists must be stopped.

Liberal Democrats and their surrogates in the mainstream media are constantly telling us that Trump supporters are intolerant and violent, but the violence is coming from the left, and it has been that way since Donald Trump was nominated.

This is not the first time that I’ve been attacked by liberals. In 2017, I was assaulted at Equinox Sports Club Los Angeles when the employees overheard me doing a radio interview backing President Trump. The Equinox manager and another employee cornered and attacked me while hurling racial epithets. As a result, I filed a civil rights lawsuit against Equinox.

Order Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson’s book, “The Antidote: Healing America from the Poison of Hate, Blame, and Victimhood.”

Leftists are getting bolder because conservative Christian men and women have allowed them to have their way. It’s pathetic that conservative men are afraid to speak up and fight for what is right without anger. They’re more concerned about not offending immoral liberals than they are about being right. Liberals know there are no real consequences for their violent actions, so they’ve become more brazen with their violence toward us.

The Women’s March has been embroiled in a controversy over their embrace of Louis Farrakhan, the virulent anti-Semitic, anti-white leader of the Nation of Islam. Tamika Mallory (co-president of the Women’s March) and board member Linda Sarsour (a Palestinian Muslim activist who has embraced the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions [BDS] movement) are openly hostile to Jews.

Tamika Mallory shares the same views as Farrakhan. She was groomed by Al Sharpton – another black bigot. Mallory attended the Nation of Islam’s annual Saviour’s Day in February 2018, an event she admits to regularly attending most of her life. Mallory also called Farrakhan the “G.O.A.T.” (Greatest of All Time), and she refuses to distance herself from Farrakhan. And during a recent PBS “Firing Line” interview, Mallory refused to acknowledge Israel’s right to exist.

Protesters at the Women’s March in Washington, D.C. called for free abortions, for President Trump’s children to be caged, and for Trump to “drop dead.” Rev. Jacqui Lewis, a black liberal and senior minister at Middle Collegiate Church in New York, spoke at the Women’s March and announced that Americans’ greatest enemies are “white supremacy,” “transphobia,” and “sexism.”

It’s disturbing that on the eve of Martin Luther King Jr. Day – a day celebrating the life and achievements of the late civil-rights leader – Women’s March organizers and Democrats have chosen hate and violence over truth and love. They embrace hate merchants like Louis Farrakhan and violently attack Trump supporters.

The Women’s March and the Democratic Party support violence and hate toward Trump supporters and conservatives. The organizers and their supporters are anti-Semitic, they hate President Trump, they hate men, and they hate Christians and unborn children. It’s time to face the truth so we can deal with the real evil that is dividing our country.

Bill Lockwood-The Value of History

by Bill Lockwood

George Santayana famously remarked, “Those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it.” History is an insightful teacher which helps guide us in the future. But if it is to be helpful and not harmful, we must have a realistic view of the past. For this reason, in order to turn societies on their heads, Karl Marx observed that “the first battlefield is to re-write history.” William Z. Foster, long-time head of the Communist Party in America, said “Our teachers must re-write history from the Marxian viewpoint.”

The reason that communists, progressives, and socialists wish to re-write history is perhaps best described by George Orwell. “Those who control the present, control the past; and those who control the past control the future.”

Distorting history has long been the stock-in-trade of all leftists in Western culture, from socialists, progressives, humanists, atheists, feminists, to Marxists and communists. Environmentalists paint grim pictures of Industrial America. Nativists wish to perpetuate the “indigenous” Indian culture on this continent in opposition to the Christian ideals of freedom and respect of human life enshrined in our Constitution.

Practically the only fact of history recited by schoolchildren from kindergarten to college is that America once had black slaves. The message inherent here is that the current generations should pay some kind of reparation.

This hatred of Americana is evident everywhere.  History classes regularly excoriate the founding generation for allowing slavery while completely ignoring the fact that not one slave was brought to America that did not originate with Muslim pirates who enslaved over 180 million Africans and over a million Europeans. Every single slave that came to America had been purchased from Muslim slave-traders. Not only is this a fact of history, but the Koran actually depicts Allah as teaching and demanding slavery. Yet, Islam is taught in a positive light in the same public schools. How can this be?

The point is: this lop-sided instruction demonstrates that our culture is seeking to make some value-judgments of these things. Cultural leaders are almost completely leftists who are controlling the past and thereby controlling the future. Scholars call this “historical negation”—an illegitimate distortion of the historical record.

Columnist Bill Federer (World Net Daily, 9.12.17) reminds us of the methodology of communism. (1) Say negative things about a country’s founders so people emotionally detach from them. (2) Then the people are moved into a neutral position where they don’t remember where they came from. (3) Then they can be easily brainwashed into the communist future planned for them.

This sums up well what is occurring in America. Consider the ways this distortion of history influences society.

First, a political influence. The beginning point of shaping the future is to shape the politics of the day. Once historical myths such as Indian Genocide by Americans is perpetuated, politics are influenced. The Welfare State as a means of “reparation” continues—regardless of the plain facts that joblessness, alcoholism, fatherless families, depression, suicide and other societal problems are sky-high on Indian reservations. But these are directly related to the fact that those who live on reservations have been on the government dole for over 100 years. Individuals have little or no dignity remaining.

Exactly the same issue regards admissions into colleges, universities and graduate schools. Minorities, whose ancestors, it is held, have been oppressed in one fashion or another, have preference over other potential students regardless of academic qualification. We do not have an even playing-field nor are we likely to see one as long as history continues to be misrepresented and abused.

Second, an ideological influence. Michael d’Ancona, a columnist for The Guardian and one of the UK’s liberal political journalists, stated that historical “negationists” “seem to have been given the task in [a] nation’s cultural development, the full significance of which is emerging only now: To redefine [national] status in a changing world.”

He was speaking of Great Britain and the desire by many Brits to exit the European Union. In other words, history is being used as a “social resource” that helps shape “national identity” as well as the culture and its “public memory.” “Through the study of history, people are imbued with a particular cultural identity; therefore, by negatively revising history, the negationist can craft a specific, ideological identity,” correctly notes an article on Wikipedia.

There is that ideological identity which speaks to who we are as a nation. History is being manipulated to re-shape our identity as an American nation under God.

Third, a religious influence. The Bible in the Old Testament continually admonished the Hebrews to “teach their children” not only the ways of the Lord (Dt. 6:4-6); but to constantly remind them of their own past.  When Joshua led the Israelites through the Jordan River safely to the western bank, he erected a monument with the specific instruction: “When your children ask in time to come, What means these stones?” they were to remind them of the event it commemorated. The entire 78th Psalm can be entitled: “Remember to Remember.” Don’t forget your history.

The psalm tells the Hebrews “do not forget.” Teach your children (v. 4); Do not forget the works of God (v. 7); the generations before us “forgot God’s doings” (v. 11); the generation of Jews that came out of Egypt ended up “not believing God” (v. 22); they “did not remember his hand when He redeemed them from the adversary” (v. 42). Because of their forgetfulness God delivered them to enemies (v. 61). The nation finally went to captivity and slavery in foreign nations.

Americans have the same forgetfulness. Our nation was established to be “A Christian Nation” precisely because of biblical and Christian principles that were engrafted into its legal fabric. For this reason and this reason alone we have enjoyed the greatest liberties that history has ever known in any society. But who reads history any more? Our forgetfulness of these fundamentals is turning us into a secular society that more closely resembles a socialistic state of Europe than the free nation of our forefathers.

Bill Lockwood: True Religion Results in Free-Will Giving: Not Jizya or Socialistic Forcible Taxation & Redistribution

by Bill Lockwood

By speaking of the reign of Solomon (970-931 B.C.), which was a foreshadowing of Christ’s kingdom, the Psalmist in chapter 72 depicts the expansive coming reign as being from “sea to sea, and from the river to the ends of the earth” (72:8). During this reign of the Messiah the kings of Tarshish and of the isles shall bring presents: the kings of Sheba and Seba shall offer gifts (10).

Charles Spurgeon, the matchless commentator on the Psalms, observed at these verses,

…true religion leads to generous giving; we are not taxed in Christ’s dominions, but we are delighted to offer freely to him… This free-will offering is all Christ and his church desire; they want to forced levies and distraints [to seize by distress], let all men give of their own free will, kings as well as commoners; …

Free will offerings. This is the only giving known in the New Testament. Paul writes in 2 Corinthians 9:7 “Let each man do according as he has purposed in his heart; not grudgingly, nor of necessity, for God loves a cheerful giver.” For this reason, Paul writes the letter and encourages by persuasion the churches to freely give. How beautiful is this precedent compared to other systems and man-made religions and systems!

Compare Giving to Islamic Jizya

Mohammed absolutely established that people of other religious persuasions must pay a poll tax to Muslims called the jizya. This was specifically that they might recognize they were inferior to Muslims. “Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which has been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book (Jews and Christians), until they pay the jizya with willing submission and feel themselves subdued” (Koran 9:29).

From the religionofpeace.com website:

Traditionally the collection of the jizya occurs at a ceremony that is designed to emphasize the subordinate status of the non-Muslim, where the subject is often struck in a humiliating fashion. M.A. Khan recounts that some Islamic clerics encouraged tax collectors to spit into the mouths of Hindu dhimmis during the process. He also quotes the popular Sufi teacher, Shaykh Ahmad Sirhindi:

The honor of Islam lies in insulting the unbelief and the unbelievers (kafirs). One who respects kafirs dishonors Muslims… The real purpose of levying the Jizya on them is to humiliate them… [and] they remain terrified and trembling.

The jizya (or extortion) is one of the main cornerstones of the entire system of Islam. It institutionalizes forever the fact that, in the eyes of Muslims, non-Muslims have an inferior status in Muslim nations.

Another example is this that there is no way to live peaceably with Islam. Where it has dominated a culture, it has exacted a forcible toll on all non-Muslim peoples throughout the centuries—without exception. As it develops and engulfs a culture, Islam is designed to extinguish all Kafir civilizations. It is but a reflection of Mohammed himself who did not stop the conquering of Arabia until 100% of his demands were met.

This is just one example that demonstrates that Islam is not a religion of God, depending upon thoughtful reasoning and persuasion by argumentation; but a man-made totalitarian system relying solely upon force. When one comes out of the dank dungeon of Islam, and stands upon the mountaintops of Christianity, he is able to breathe the clean fresh air of a religion of the heart whose founder, Jesus Christ, never used violence or force to subjugate man, but died on the cross for the sins of the world.

Compare Giving to Socialism or Social Justice

Social Justice is not simply doing humanitarian acts of kindness as Buckley and Dobson suppose in Humanitarian Jesus: Social Justice and the Cross. “The Social Gospel asks Christians to be concerned and invested in the world around them” (p. 42). The authors suggest that the entire issue is about whether first to give a tract or a sandwich to those in need? (p. 43) This is ignorance as to what is social justice or socialism.

The great author and thinker Thomas Sowell explains: “Central to the concept of social justice is the notion that individuals are entitled to some share in the wealth produced by society, and irrespective of any individual contributions made or not made to the production of that wealth.” (A Conflict of Visions, 216)

But if all people in society are entitled to a share in that which I produce, how shall this be enforced? For this reason, socialism by definition implies the “expansion of the government domain to produce social results to which particular individuals are morally entitled.”

So states The National Association of Scholars. The term “social justice”, or socialism, they explain, is today understood to mean the “advocacy of egalitarian access to income through state-sponsored redistribution.”

But state-sponsored redistribution of my production begins with theft. Forcible removing from me of the fruits of my own production to give to others. This is not even remotely associated with the free-will giving taught by Christianity. If it is, why must there be a gigantic state to enforce it?

The French writer, Frederic Bastiat was correct therefore to explain socialism as plunder.

See if the law takes from some persons what belongs to them, and gives it to other persons to whom it does not belong. See if the law benefits one citizen at the expense of another by doing what the citizen himself cannot do without committing a crime. . . It is impossible to introduce into society a greater change and a greater evil than this: the conversion of the law into an instrument of plunder. (Bastiat, The Law, p. 17).

That the above has already occurred in America is obvious. The evil is already upon us. A gigantic welfare state.  Former Texas Congressman Ron Paul summarizes it well.

From lower-income Americans who rely on food stamps, public housing, and other government programs, to middle-class Americans who live in homes they could not afford without assistance from federal agencies like Fannies Mae and Freddie Mac, to college students reliant on government-subsidized student loans, to senior citizens reliant on Social Security and Medicare, to billionaire CEOs whose companies rely on bailouts, subsidies, laws and regulations written to benefit politically-powerful businesses, and government contracts, most Americans are reliant on at least one federal program. (Dec. 31, 2018. Ronpaulinstitute.org)

Make no mistake. The Welfare State is nothing akin to the free-will giving of Christianity. Once again, instead of relying on force to confiscate and redistribute, the early church in the book of Acts willingly and freely gave of their possessions to assist others (Acts 2:43-47; 5:1-4). There is a world of difference between the Bible and the systems of man.

Jesse Lee Peterson: OSCARS SO GAY! LESSONS FROM KEVIN HART

Exclusive: Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson blasts radical LGBTQ activists who hijacked Academy Awards

by Jesse Lee Peterson

Comedian Kevin Hart announced on Twitter that he was stepping down from hosting this year’s Oscars ceremony after the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences asked him to apologize for “homophobic” tweets he sent eight years ago.

Hart initially refused, but later caved to pressure. “I have made the choice to step down from hosting this year’s Oscar’s,” Hart tweeted. “This is because I do not want to be a distraction on a night that should be celebrated by so many amazing talented artists. I sincerely apologize to the LGBTQ community for my insensitive words from my past.”

Some quick background: After it was announced that Hart would host the 91st Oscars ceremony on Feb. 24, internet trolls began scouring his Twitter account and found these tweets:

“Yo if my son comes home & try’s 2 play with my daughters doll house I’m going 2 break it over his head & say n my voice ‘stop that’s gay,’” read a 2011 tweet that Hart deleted this week, according to BuzzFeed News.

Hart’s forced apology is proof that the Academy Awards have been hijacked by radical LGBTQ activists.

Kevin Hart shouldn’t have apologized, but he is too weak to resist the pressure. During a 2014 interview with former BET News anchor Ed Gordon, Hart admitted that he no longer jokes about homosexuals because it would destroy his career.

“I don’t joke about it. … I don’t want that problem. … I don’t need any enemies – at all.” He acknowledged that not only can it end a career, it “can throw you under the bus” and you’ll end up in out of work in that “check cashing line.”

It seems today, the only group that comedians can make fun of is straight white Christian conservative men with power

Order Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson’s book, “The Antidote: Healing America from the Poison of Hate, Blame, and Victimhood.”

During the 2018 MTV Music Awards last August, Hart was applauded by liberals for taking jabs at President Trump when he bashed Trump for his criticism over NFL players “taking a knee” as a form of protest during the national anthem. But liberals have zero tolerance for politically incorrect jokes about homosexuals, even from liberal black comedians.

Black comedian and actor Nick Cannon has come to Hart’s defense by posting tweets containing “homophobic” language from liberal white female comedians Chelsea Handler, Sarah Silverman and Amy Schumer.

In a series of tweets, Cannon called out the female comedians for their past “homophobic” tweets. In a past tweet from Handler, she used the term “fag bird”; and Cannon commented, “Interesting I wonder if there was any backlash there.” His commentary was similar to Silverman who once tweeted, “I dont mean this in a hateful way but the new bachelorette’s a faggot” and Schumer who wrote, “Enjoy skyfall fags. I’m bout to get knee deep in Helen Hunt #thesessions”

Some homosexuals refer to the Oscars as the “Super Bowl” for the gay community. And according to GLADD, the 61st Annual Grammy Awards “are going to look extremely queer this year with a huge number of LGBTQ artists nominated across all the categories.”

GLAAD CEO/president Sarah Kate Ellis said, “We were hoping this was going to turn into a teachable moment that Kevin Hart would still be hosting the Oscars and he would be using this moment to show, not only his evolution around the LGBTQ community, but also to then use the Oscar stage … to help build unity and awareness around the LGBTQ community and how we are marginalized in this country.” In other words, they didn’t expect him to put up any resistance.

The black community still doesn’t accept homosexuality as normal; therefore, Hollywood is intentionally targeting blacks with movies and TV shows that celebrate homosexuality.

Fox’s series “Empire,” with its openly gay character of Jamal Lyon (Jussie Smollett) created by the openly Gay filmmaker/TV producer Lee Daniels, has been shamelessly promoting black homosexuals in a positive light, as has CW’s new series “All American” – a show geared towards young people. Representations of black homosexuals on film and television before “Empire” didn’t glorify the deviant lifestyle.

Hollywood’s effort to emasculate black men on screen by casting them as weak, gay or transgender has been going on for decades. It seems like almost every major black man in Hollywood, has at one point in his career, put on a dress, wig and lipstick to portray women. Here are some examples:

  • Will Smith played a gay con artist in the 1993 movie “Six Degrees of Separation.”
  • Ving Rhames played a drag queen in “Holiday Heart.” And in Quentin Tarantino’s sadistic “Pulp Fiction,” Rhames played a high-level crime figure who gets brutally sodomized.
  • Tyler Perry has made a fortune playing a woman in his “Madea” movies.
  • Jamie Foxx started out playing a female character in the ’90s comedy TV hit “In Living Color.”

Other notable black actors who had to dawn dresses include Chris Tucker and Wesley Snipes.

And actor Terry Crews testified in Congress during the whole #Metoo hysteria that he was sexually assaulted by a Hollywood executive in front of his wife.

Hollywood and the Oscars are a vehicle to promote homosexuality, feminism and other deviant behaviors that make a mockery of masculinity and traditional family values.

It’s unfortunate that Kevin Hart apologized; but most black men today have been emasculated by their mothers and cannot stand firm for what is right.
