This tweet was read by over 300,000 people….

Sturgeon goes on TV to declare there is not a shred of evidence for Salmond’s claims and asks him to produce it. Then her government bans him from producing that evidence. This is not a Monty Python skit. This is Scotland in 2021.

Harvard Slavery –

Amazon ban When Harry Became Sally.  See my earlier review for why this is important

 Amnesty ban Alexei Navalny

 

The good son has sat and often wept

Beneath a malign star by which he’s kept
And the night-time in which he’s wrapped
Speaks of good and speaks of evil
And he calls to his mother
And he calls to his father
But they are deaf in the shadows
Of his brother’s truancy
The good son

Did you write the book of love, And do you have faith in God above, If the Bible tells you so? Do you believe in rock ‘n roll, Can music save your mortal soul, And can you teach me how to dance real slow?

  1. Hello Pastor David,

    Here’s today’s woke madness:

    Mr Potato Head goes gender neutral.

    The article reports there is another set of gender neutral chikdren’s toys akready out there:

    “Mattel’s Creatable World dolls, released in 2019, are the first line of gender-neutral dolls produced by the company famous for Barbie.”

    Meanwhile, this is from a communist party website so read with discernment but the classics are under attack for being too white:

    “Earlier this month, as part of its ongoing effort to racialize every aspect of human existence, the New York Times Magazine published an article by Harpers editor Rachel Poser about the work of Dan-el Padilla Peralta, a race-obsessed professor of Classics at Princeton University (“He Wants to Save Classics from Whiteness. Can the Field Survive?”). Padilla upholds the view that his discipline—the study of ancient Greek and Roman history and culture—is a mainstay of the conception of “whiteness” and should be done away with.”

    So even the communists are distancing themselves in disgust from their identity politics liberal left “cousins”.

    While all of these distractions are taking place, the real news is that Joe Biden’s first piece of warmongering has begun:

  2. Bring back the “Monster Raving Loony Party” and Lord Such.
    What’s that? I hear you say, “it’s never left.”
    It dominates….such and such and such, so, and so and so much Loch cultivated”fish” pie in the sky!!!

  3. Re Harvard , this overrated institution has an endowment of almost 42 billion dollars.

    Financing a Harvard education is like paying tuition fees to a giant hedge fund.
