    above should read “rampant reverse racism”

  • [2] March 27, 2015 at 12:29am

    Would it not be more helpful, if you wish to comment, for you to research the good, the bad, and the ugly regarding the Civil War, and give a balanced editorial on it? Because that is what is sorely needed here in America, not just on this subject, but on any subject. We desperately need real journalists who will present issues from the non-partisan side of the fence, a side that did still have some facsimile of existing in 1980.

    In the end, however, I agree with you. The license plates should remain under states rights, as should many, many other issues. The federal government has become too powerful, and the states themselves along with our elections are becoming irrelevant. We are supposed to have local elections to avoid “one-size-fits-all.” Isn’t it ironic, as good as it was that slavery ended, that it was the Civil War that devastatingly weakened states rights? This editorial on plates wouldn’t have even been necessary.

    Food for thought: Southerners are stubborn with long memories. I honestly believe the reason racism is still so prevalent is because the black community took the brunt of the Southerners anger in the aftermath for losing the war, and the attitude was handed down generations. If the North had not been unjust to the South (I’m not talking about the slavery), would slavery have ended in due time on its own, and the racial relations not be so bad today? Or would slavery still exist? Maybe. We won’t know.

    Mr. Granger, I respectfully do not understand you. You make it clear at the end of your article that you understand that the “War of the States” was not all about slavery for all Southerners fighting it, and you do not question “the love and loyalty felt by southern Americans for their country.” And yet, having admitted that, still do not understand that the Rebel flag s not a racist symbol?

    I know that racist southern groups have used the flag. I know racism still exists in the south (and can you genuinely say it does not exist in the north? Pot Kettle Black). Them I ignore, as should anyone. I refuse to allow the Rebel flag to be tainted by such as they, when for me, and a host of other people, the Rebel flag is a part of my heritage and nothing more… or will you contend that the Dukes of Hazard was a racist show?

    Of far bigger concern to me is the repent reverse racism that says I should be ashamed of my color and my heritage. Are you aware that, after attempts to ban and taint the Rebel flag, anything to do with the Confederacy is now a target by the same groups who called to thank you? Banning the Confederate uniform, removing statues of Confederate soldiers, and now recently, banning hoop skirts… HOOP skirts from a Georgia university campus? Do we southerners have you to thank for aiding in an attack on our heritage, a culture which apparently you do not understand, much less are qualified to comment on? (To be continued)

    16. You said, ‘No, we will flee on horses.’
    Therefore you will flee!
    You said, ‘We will ride off on swift horses.’
    Therefore your pursuers will be swift!

    17. A thousand will flee
    at the threat of one;
    at the threat of five
    you will all flee away,
    till you are left
    like a flagstaff on a mountaintop,
    like a banner on a hill.”

    18. Yet the Lord longs to be gracious to you;
    therefore he will rise up to show you compassion.
    For the Lord is a God of justice.
    Blessed are all who wait for him!

    Isaiah 30

  • [2] March 23, 2015 at 4:47pm

    No. What it indicates is that God knew how people were going to act, even though He gave them every chance not to.

    1. “Woe to the obstinate children,”
    declares the Lord,
    “to those who carry out plans that are not mine,
    forming an alliance, but not by my Spirit,
    heaping sin upon sin;

    5. everyone will be put to shame
    because of a people useless to them,
    who bring neither help nor advantage,
    but only shame and disgrace.

    9. For these are rebellious people, deceitful children,
    children unwilling to listen to the Lord’s instruction.

    10. They say to the seers,
    “See no more visions!”
    and to the prophets,
    “Give us no more visions of what is right!
    Tell us pleasant things,
    prophesy illusions.

    11. Leave this way,
    get off this path,
    and stop confronting us
    with the Holy One of Israel!

    12. Therefore this is what the Holy One of Israel says:
    “Because you have rejected this message,
    relied on oppression
    and depended on deceit,

    13. this sin will become for you
    like a high wall, cracked and bulging,
    that collapses suddenly, in an instant.

    14. It will break in pieces like pottery,
    shattered so mercilessly
    that among its pieces not a fragment will be found
    for taking coals from a hearth
    or scooping water out of a cistern.”

    15. This is what the Sovereign Lord, the Holy One of Israel, says:
    “In repentance and rest is your salvation,
    in quietness and trust is your strength,
    but you would have none of it.

    “Given the diverse demography of our community it was suggested by the advisers that the students come in maybe national pride theme so they could represent their individual nationalities,”

    American IS your nationality!!

    “Excuse me, I see you are of a different pigmentation and ancestral cultural background than my own. Would you please have a cup of coffee with me so I can fill my Starbuck’s Racial Relations quota?”

    In other news, the University of Georgia banned hoop skirts because they are racist.

    “…Nonetheless, we have all had firsthand experience with the harsh backlash that follows when the dominant view of “gay parenting” as universally positive is questioned. We know that you will come under tremendous pressure, especially now when both Italy and the United States are being pushed to override our concerns for our rights to a mom and dad, in order to please a powerful gay lobby.

    Nobody receives more vicious attacks from the lobby than those who come from the gay community and question its policies: children of gay couples just as much as the gay men who defend them (like the two of you). ”

    The Blaze needs to publish the letter she and the others signed. I have thought of, and as a child of divorce, personally experienced the hole in her life she described. As such, I take great exception at both Harry and Blink for writing her off. I never once thought about that the gay community would direct their tyrannical hostility at children, but of course, that absolutely makes sense.

    Thank you for speaking out, Miss Barwick.

    Slashing open a woman is insane, but slashing open and tearing a baby to pieces is not.

    Right.

    I’m not saying I’m perfect. I’m definitely not. But, with humbleness, it doesn’t make sense to me how morally-bankrupt people can sit on TV (or starbucks) and try to instruct us on morals.

    Christian principles do not call for “tolerance,” they call for love. That is, including but not limited to:

    “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.” I Corinthians 13:4-6 (NIV version for the sake of those KJV illiterate)

    All this talk that acts like whites owe something… it is directly against Biblical morals. The MSNBC might not hold the Bible in high esteem, but many of the Black community do, do they not?

    In any case, Starbucks, MSNBC, and those upholding this “line” of conversation don’t know what they are talking about when it comes to morality. Therefore, they can hardly hold a conversation about it. :(

    So let me see if I understand. The Democrats passed this law with the intention of forcing people to buy health insurance. However, after it is now affecting their own constituents, now they are concerned about its effects?

  • March 5, 2015 at 11:57am

    @ King

    You didn’t offend me. :) I was in a hurry for personal reasons, and in my haste my last comment may have come off a bit sharper than I intended.

    As for the 60′s and 70′s… There is a quote from the Bible, “Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.” I have found this to be true. Even if said child out of his mouth rejects God, he still will operate according to the basic principles he has been taught. To say the protests didn’t ruin the generation… I think are you both correct and incorrect. Immoralities that are opened to the public do not affect the current generation… they are not the ones who will follow it. It is the generations to follow. I disagree profusely that we have not been affected. The man in the white house is proof enough.

    I wish I had more time to discuss this, but I’m afraid I do not.

    Sincerely, Good day :)

    Those students acted as such because that is what they are picking up from the professors. That is indoctrination. Those stories are piled on more, while piled on more. This isn’t a local phenomenon. It is widespread, with reports coming in from campuses across the U.S. If you really are someone who looks at things fairly, then you would not be dismissive of the facts. Instead, you bury your head in the sand, making yourself no different than those students.

    After all, you concluded we hate education.

    Good day

  • [2] March 5, 2015 at 11:05am

    That’s what is coming out of the universities, KingofPrydain. What challenge of beliefs took place?

    Those are courtesy of Campus Reform btw.

    continued:

    ““I’m going to be honest with you, Alex. I never advocated for you. I never would have,” Brown said. “I would never represent you because, I couldn’t because, you directly conflict with my life. Period.”

    “For anyone on this Commission to represent you would be to represent racism, sexism, homophobia,” Brown said. “And clearly you just spent two hours of your time listening that this body would like to be an anti-racist institution. So what you seek should not come from here. At least not this body with these people.”

    “There will be no resolution written for your racism,” she continued. “It won’t happen. No one will support you. If you want to do this, whatever you call yourself, disrespecting, burning bridges, having no reason to create open dialogue, you’re going to continue to be the lone ranger, who from my perspective is threatened by black and brown people. So no. I will not advocate for you to get a gun to shoot me because you feel scared in the middle of the night when you see me in my black hoodie. I will not. I would not.”
    Ross told Campus Reform that he had been deemed a racist by his peers in the past because of his support of allowing those with appropriate permits to conceal carry on campus, but never to this extent.

    “I don’t know why they’re calling me racist, or a sexist, or a homophobe because none of those things have anything to deal with what I’m asking them to do,” he told Campus Reform, adding that his peers’ behavior at the meeting was “ch

    Student advocating for campus carry to student government: “I’ve been here for five weeks and I’ve talked to two of you” Ross told the Commission, which according to its website, has over 23 commissioners.

    “Sorry, I’m gonna have to interrupt you because you as a white male talking to me,” protested an unidentified member of the Commission midway through Ross’s remarks.

    “Seek out people who think differently than you instead of shutting them down as wrong,” Ross responded. “It’s extremely childish to call me names,” he said, but the name calling had just begun.

    Another student commissioner at K-College, said Ross was “disrespecting” people on the Commission as he was “talking to [another student] like that as a person of color when you’re coming from a white male privilege stance in life.”

    “And what’s interesting right now is that you actually can’t respond to me because your time is up,” a student identified as Vice President of the Commission Rian Brown said at the meeting. “And I know that’s going to be hard for you because you come from a place of such privilege that you felt it was okay to disrespect people of color in this room.”

    Members accused Ross of “racism,” “homophobia,” and “sexism,” and some even went so far as to accuse Ross’s pro-Second Amendment position of desiring to kill students in black hoodies.”

    “Parker (pro-abortion speaker) was perfectly amiable in his outward demeanor, but his manner of answering questions demonstrated extreme intolerance of pro-life activists,” Princeton student Zach Horton told Campus Reform. “Among the many softball questions, only one side really had the floor, barring our four questions [of opposing viewpoints].”

    Prior to the lecture, Princeton College Democrats sent an email to its members, obtained by Campus Reform, that ‘members of the College Republicans and Anscombe Society are planning on attending en masse and monopolizing the Q+A portion of the event with disrespectful questions… It would be great for some progressive students to be there and show our support for women’s reproductive freedoms and for Dr. Parker’s advocacy.”

  • [5] March 5, 2015 at 10:48am

    I think you misconclude.

    People here aren’t against education. It’s what the universities are calling an education. In addition, 10-20 years ago when those parents graduated, most of what was coming out of universities was still useful.

    There used to be this joke… “I’m giving him an education.” and the answer would be, “Education in what?” It is no longer a joke.

    And yet your analogy demonstrates the fallacy in the homosexual argument. Homosexuality is a behavior and absolutely CAN be imitated and/or learned. People cannot choose to be white simply because there are only black people around them. They can, however, choose homosexual behavior.

    The homosexual argument in establishing themselves as a class must rely on that they cannot choose, and they cannot change. There is no proof of this, and plenty to the contrary. Homosexuality easily falls under immoral, socially destructive behavior. When a person is inclined to a destructive behavior, his or her genetic inclination to that behavior is irrelevant. All people are not permitted to hit someone under the law. That law is distributed evenly regardless of personal inclination to anger. This is the true meaning of being treated equally.

    Homosexuality might not be illegal, as sexual relations in general are not illegal, but that does not in the least require that the populace disregard the blight on the general health and stability of the public that sexual promiscuity and deviancy generate.
