    On Wrongthink and Intimidation

    Here is a great video from Prager U and Kimberley Strassel, author of The Intimidation Game. This topic has been written about in the pages of Salvo: The Battle of Walkerton Kevin O’Connor & the Defiant Survival of Memories Pizza by Terrell Clemmons

    . . . People of conscience would do well to reflect on the attempted takedown of Memories Pizza. Fjallraven Kanken Big Crystal clearly told the reporter that Memories would never deny service to a gay couple who came in to eat. But in response to a pointed question, she did say, “If a gay couple came in and wanted us to provide pizzas for their wedding, we would have to say no.” As if people routinely call upon pizza joints to provide their wedding reception dinner. mochilas kanken It was clearly a setup—a sting interview cavalierly crafted to get multiple page views; good-faith reporting be damned. At that, it was wildly successful, but it also roused an alarmingly malicious mob demanding obeisance or blood. They got neither, at least not from Kevin or Crystal. And there’s something else to reflect on here. In Maoist China, when an individual fell out of favor with the powers that be, he or she would be summoned to a “self-criticism” session—something akin to an ideological tarring and feathering. The entire community would loudly denounce the person, usually for no other reason than to avoid becoming the next self-criticism subject. Nike Pas Cher As I watched the mob tactics play out in Indiana, I couldn’t help but think of this practice of conspicuous denunciation—the difference being, in America, that subjects don’t have to attend their own denunciation. .

    I would also like to draw your attention to another instance of this kind of bullying. This time it’s happening at a Catholic university towards a brilliant professor for holding to Catholic views regarding sex and marriage. Rod Dreher writes of it at The American Conservative:

At the present moment, the literature professor, Dante scholar, and orthodox Catholic Anthony Esolen is under severe attack at his own institution, Providence College, for having recently written a couple of essays criticizing the present conception of “diversity” on his Catholic campus, and reflecting on the persecutorial phase of our culture (here’s one, and here’s the other).

    Essential Articles from Salvo on Communism and the State

    25gardner State Purposes Utopian Creep & the Struggle for Human Rights & Freedom by Terrell Clemmons

    . . . Consider that this Ameritopia’s Leviathan-sized federal government has become the nation’s largest creditor, debtor, lender, contractor, grantor, insurer, health-care provider, regulator, and pension guarantor, to name only a few of the many extra-constitutional roles Uncle Sam has assumed. Worse, an alarming segment of the population has foregone self-reliance and individual industry in favor of dependence on the rest. In such an environment, those traits which represent the best in the nature of man—initiative, drive, and selflessness—inevitably languish and falter, while, as Shin Dong-hyuk warns, those which represent the worst—indolence, envy, and predation—thrive. . . .

    Statism’s Deadbeat Dad Jean-Jacques Rousseau by Terrell Clemmons

    . . . mochilas kanken baratas The expressions of Rousseau’s ideas took different forms in the different nations to which they spread, but one thing they had in common was the elevation of the state to the role of supreme liberator of the people and ultimate authority and caretaker over them. Whereas the original American understanding of liberty valued and recognized inherent human rights that the state may not transgress, Rousseau’s view of liberty was the diametrical opposite. As Nancy Pearcey explains in How Now Shall We Live?, to Rousseau, “freedom meant liberation from the forms and institutions of society—family, church, class, and local community.” And the state would and should be the liberator. “Each citizen would then be completely independent of all his fellow men,” she quotes Rousseau, “and absolutely dependent on the state.” . . .

    . . . nike air max nettbutikk I suffered eleven years in Communist prisons. air max pas cher They put me in prison because I was a teacher; I was teaching religion and the Romanian language in high school. Nike Air Max 2016 Heren Zwart When the Communist government came into power, they immediately said everyone in the schools would have to interpret everything in the Marxist, materialistic way. But I didn’t want to lie to my students. It was not only me; many thousands of other Christians and intellectuals in Romania did the same. We wanted to educate young people to be themselves the way that God created them, to know who they were. Personality is something given by God. Each one is unique. God never creates standard types, like bars of soap coming down the conveyer belt in the factory. It may seem that I exaggerate, because I came out of Communism, where the individuals were just numbers, like bricks in a building, all the same, and they don’t have any other function. . . .

    Che Guevara The Making of a Marxist Martyr by Terrell Clemmons

    . . . Although Che had left Cuba under a cloud two years earlier, Castro responded to the news of Che’s death by declaring a three-day period of national mourning. “If you wish to express what we want our children to be,” he told a crowd in Havana’s Revolution Square, “we must say from our hearts as ardent revolutionaries, ‘We want them to be like Che!'” From then on, Cuban schoolchildren began their day saying, “Pioneers of Communism, we will be like Che!” It makes perfect sense that Castro would want everyone to be like Che, for Che served Castro to his dying breath. It also makes sense that Cuban schoolchildren would be forced to pay tribute to this would-be role model. They have no choice. What doesn’t make sense is why anyone in the free world would follow suit. . . .

    On “Deeply Held Beliefs”

    bruce-springsteen-north-carolina__oPtFrom The Daily Caller:

    A petition on Change.org has garnered nearly 500 signatures in support of Bruce Springsteen’s decision to cancel an April 10 concert in Greensboro, NC. “Bruce Springsteen has a right to his deeply held beliefs. He has a right to control his business and refuse to do business with those he disagrees with.”

    It appears that the boss can get away with denying his services to those with whom he disagrees based on his “deeply held beliefs” that men and women NEED to be able to share a toilet. Not so much for those who are on the other side such debates. Do you remember Memories?
