Teaching Kids That America Was Always Racist

If there are riots now in America, what will it be like 20 years from now if the New York Times gets its way?

The New York Times sponsored the 1619 Project, which postulates that America’s real beginnings as a nation are when the first African slaves were brought over….to Jamestown in 1619.

Many historians note that this is a distortion of our nation’s roots. Worse, it makes young people turn against this country. Despite our flawed history and their own personal sins, the founders created the framework by which evils like slavery could one day be uprooted. And it has been.

This battle over history and what is to be taught in our schools (when they reopen) has reached the highest echelons of power these days.

CNN reported (5/3/2021): “Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is asking schools to stop using the 1619 Project, a curriculum aimed at reframing US history around the date of August 1619, when the first slave ship arrived to what would become the U.S.”

McConnell and other Republican senators said, “Families did not ask for this divisive nonsense. Voters did not vote for it…Americans never decided our children should be taught that our country is inherently evil.”

In my humble opinion, Mitch is right to do this. If this curriculum continues to spread, all children will learn is a distorted view of our past.

In his classic book “1984,” George Orwell said, “Whoever controls the past controls the future.” And he added, “Whoever controls the present controls the past.”

There is indeed a battle over the history of America. Much of the rioting in the streets of the last year has constituted a war on America as founded. Statues of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Teddy Roosevelt, and many others have been torn down by the mobs. Even Abraham Lincoln has not escaped the wrath of rioters.

Although some historians support the 1619 Project, many historians vehemently disagree. A few months ago, the DailyWire reported that a group of scholars demanded that the Pulitzer Board revoke the Pulitzer Prize awarded to NYT writer Nikole Hannah-Jones’ Pulitzer Prize for her introduction to the 1619 Project.

Bob Woodson, an African-American scholar who has worked for decades on behalf of urban renewal, organized a number of scholars to oppose the 1619 Project.

In an interview I did with Woodson for D. James Kennedy Ministries, he told our viewers, “We at the Woodson Center organized 23-plus scholars and activists to confront this 1619 Project. We call ourselves 1776 Unites.” These scholars include some prominent Blacks, like Dr. Carol Swain, retired professor at Vanderbilt Law School.

Already the Woodson Center has seen some changes: “As a result of our essays that we wrote…Nikole Hannah-Jones, who was the author of the 1619 Project actually revised it…We forced them to back away from, and change, the reasons for the Revolutionary War.”

Initially, the 1619 Project promoted the false idea that America’s War for Independence was held for the purpose of protecting slavery.

That is an astounding claim, in light of the Fairfax Resolves of 1774, whereby George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and other Members of the Virginia House of Burgesses tried to abolish the slave trade into Virginia. King George III put the kibosh on their efforts. (This was before MP William Wilberforce’s successful crusade, motivated by his Christian faith, to abolish the slave trade and then slavery itself throughout the British Empire.)

Woodson adds this about the 1619 Project: “They are trying to define America by its birth defect of slavery and Jim Crow, and our counter is that no individual or nation should be judged by the worst of what they used to be. America is a country of redemption. America is a country of second chances, and so we at 1776 Unites believe that America is defined by its promise. And the Constitution is a mechanism for us to be self-correcting, and America is the only nation on the face of the earth that fought a civil war to end slavery.” [Emphasis added]

The above-mentioned Dr. Carol Swain argues that the 1619 Project sends a “very crippling message to our children” by conveying the idea that racism is in our national DNA. It basically says that no matter how hard you try, you will always be a victim of hopelessly racist America.

What is this all about? Dr. Richard Land, the president of Southern Evangelical Seminary, observes, “If you want to remake America, you’ve got to tear down belief in the country we have now. You have to make the country we have now and the founding fathers and our institutions illegitimate—that’s what the 1619 Project is about.”

There is a battle over history, and it is a battle we must win if we are to continue as a free nation.

VIDEO: Trump Launches New Communications Platform Months After Twitter, Facebook, Big Tech Ban

President Trump will now be able to communicate with his millions of social media followers in real time. President Trump’s social media followers need to support this new platform wholeheartedly. It is vitally important that conservatives support alternative communication platforms, if we are to have any chance in our fight against the Left. “The platform, ‘From the Desk of Donald J. Trump’ appears on www.DonaldJTrump.com/desk.”

Trump launches new communications platform months after Twitter, Facebook ban

The space will allow Trump to post comments, images, and videos

By Fox News, May 4, 2021
EXCLUSIVE: Former President Trump on Tuesday launched a communications platform, which will eventually give him the ability to communicate directly with his followers, after months of being banned from sites like Twitter and Facebook.

The platform, “From the Desk of Donald J. Trump” appears on www.DonaldJTrump.com/desk.

The space will allow Trump to post comments, images, and videos.

The technology appears to be powered by Campaign Nucleus— the “digital ecosystem made for efficiently managing political campaigns and organizations,” created by his former campaign manager, Brad Parscale.

The space allows Trump to post, and allows followers to share the former president’s posts to Twitter and Facebook, however, the new platform does not have a feature to allow users to “reply” or engage with Trump’s posts.

“This is just a one-way communication,” one source familiar with the space told Fox News. “This system allows Trump to communicate with his followers.”

Trump’s new platform surfaced Tuesday, after advisers had told Fox News that the former president planned to “move forward” to create a social media platform of his own after being banned from Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, and Snapchat after the Capitol riot.

It unclear, at this point, if this platform is part of those plans, or if there is a separate project underway.

The rollout of the platform also comes just a day before Facebook’s Oversight Board is expected to announce its decision on whether to indefinitely suspend Trump from Facebook and Instagram.

The board in January accepted a case referral from Facebook to examine the ban, as well as to provide policy recommendations on suspensions when the user is a political leader.

Fascist Facebook Oversight Board Upholds Trump Ban

Facebook’s far-Left oversight board has upheld their ban of President Trump. Yet they have no problem with some of the worst racists, terrorists, and dictators spreading their propaganda on Facebook. Americans must support alternative communication platforms, if we are to have any chance in our fight against the Left.

Facebook Oversight Board upholds Trump ban but calls indefinite suspension ‘not appropriate’

By Fox News, May 5, 2021

Facebook’s Oversight Board on Wednesday upheld former President Donald Trump‘s ban from Facebook and Instagram, but said it was “not appropriate” for Facebook to impose the “indeterminate and standardless penalty of indefinite suspension.”

“The Board has upheld Facebook’s decision on January 7, 2021, to restrict then-President Donald Trump’s access to posting content on his Facebook page and Instagram account,” the board announced Wednesday morning.

But the board gave Facebook six months to review the “arbitrary” indefinite ban, saying in a tweet that the company “violated its own rules.”

“Facebook cannot make up the rules as it goes, and anyone concerned about its power should be concerned about allowing this,” the board said in a statement. “Having clear rules that apply to all users and Facebook is essential for ensuring the company treats users fairly.”

The board in January accepted a case referral from Facebook to examine the ban, as well as to provide policy recommendations on suspensions when the user is a political leader.

“Facebook’s normal penalties include removing the violating content, imposing a time-bound period of suspension, or permanently disabling the page and account,” the board said Wednesday, insisting that Facebook “review this matter to determine and justify a proportionate response that is consistent with the rules that are applied to other users of its platform.”

As for recommendations on suspensions for high-profile users like Trump, the board said that “it is not always useful to draw a firm distinction between political leaders and other influential users, recognizing that other users with large audiences can also contribute to serious risks of harm.”

“While the same rules should apply to all users, context matters when assessing the probability and imminence of harm,” the board said. “When posts by influential users pose a high probability of imminent harm, Facebook should act quickly to enforce its rules. Although Facebook explained that it did not apply its ‘newsworthiness’ allowance in this case, the Board called on Facebook to address widespread confusion about how decisions relating to influential users are made.”

The board added that “considerations of newsworthiness should not take priority when urgent action is needed to prevent significant harm.”

The board also urged Facebook to “publicly explain the rules that it uses when it imposes account-level sanctions against influential users,” saying the rules should ensure that when Facebook “imposes a time-limited suspension on the account of an influential user to reduce the risk of significant harm, it will assess whether the risk has receded before the suspension ends.”

“If Facebook identifies that the user poses a serious risk of inciting imminent violence, discrimination or other lawless action at that time, another time-bound suspension should be imposed when such measures are necessary to protect public safety and proportionate to the risk,” the board added.

VIDEO: Argentina — Those who do not learn history are doomed to repeat it.

In the early 20th century, Argentina was one of the richest countries in the world. Over the next hundred years, a succession of charismatic Marxists lied their way to power, leaving the country’s once-vibrant economy in tatters. The parallels between what socialist rulers did to Argentina and what the Democratic Party is now doing to America are frightening. The video below was produced in 2015. Six years later, time is running out to save our Republic. We are living in perilous times.

Conditioned to Comply

Lokesh Gupta, from Jaipur, India, wrote that if a baby elephant is tethered to a rope, it will never attempt to free itself from that bondage despite its growing strength to do so.  This is conditioning, no different than what we see in our fellow humans.


I admit to my disappointment when I discovered a two-star review among the fives for my book, “Confronting the Deception,” with the only comment from Paul Wilson being that he considered it “hate speech.”  Hate speech is defined by the Cambridge Dictionary as “public speech that expresses hate or encourages violence toward a person or group based on something, such as race, religion, sex, or sexual orientation.”  Had Wilson been more astute, he’d have understood that in my extensively referenced book, I am actually combating hate speech, namely, the animosity that is expressed toward our conservative values. It is obvious that the accuser defines hate speech as any ideas or news he opposes, with the hope of encouraging others to act in collaborative censorship.  Elon Musk said, “They don’t ban hate speech; they ban speech they hate.”

I suspect Paul Wilson has been trained over the years to accept only what he learned from his respected sources (school, media), which, sadly, are reflective of Communism, Fascism, and Islam.  He will not read with an open mind or regard and discuss anything antithetical to his rooted comfort level, and he uses his freedom of speech to alert others to avoid and ban the speech they disapprove.

What might he have found so offensive?  My disclosure of the Islamic ideology and historic imperialism by any means, including lies, forced conversions, invasion and conquest by bloodshed; the massacre of 890 million people over 14 centuries; the way it continues to this day through Islamic relocation; and overcoming the native population with migration and their harsh Islamic law.  These are not opinions but facts that I thoroughly document and reference, and Wilson should be offended at the facts, not my readiness to expose them.

The label of hate speech is used to stifle unpleasant facts and, intentionally or otherwise, aid the enemies of America, just as, similarly, mainstream media secreted recent news of jihadi slaughter of 236 villagers in Niger; the beheading of 55 Christians and foreigners in Mozambique, their bodies left scattered in the streets; the shooting and killing of customers in a grocery store that sells Jewish food products; the vandalism of four synagogues in The Bronx.  Wilson is the emotionally tethered elephant who sees only what his societal group stipulates he see, unable or unwilling to analyze anything on his own.

He would also be offended by my exposé of how the power-seekers have changed our schools’ curricula, manipulating our children at all levels; influencing the adults in local church and synagogue outreach programs, including the peaceful literati who attend pseudo-intellectual, indoctrination vacation spots, such as Chautauqua Institution; and mass communication that continues to produce fake news reports to sway their audience to the left.

Wilson has joined the Cancel Culture, a benign term for those who seek to annihilate all that America represents, and replace it with a form of totalitarianism that, in reality, is domination by an elite group of the astonishingly wealthy and powerful.  He has absorbed the delusion that we, the masses, must all be regulated to sameness, regardless of growth and achievement, just as the elephant remains shackled despite his increased size and strength.  Only the free-roaming elephant is unstoppable.  Why is the human so easily hitched?

Today’s Wilsons have been conditioned by all that academia, the media, and so many clergy have promoted – restricting our freedoms even to the extent of damaging our environment and our people.  Known as repressive tolerance, they are as eager to blindly accept new rules, restrictions, and a new narrative as they are to obliterate the memory of their own history, through all its representations – writings, buildings, monuments – as well as those who stand in their way. We see it  in the 1.8 billion adherents (24.1 percent of the world population) who have long forgotten their cultures and language from before the advent of Islam, and in Communism’s firm control over 1.6  billion people in five remaining communist countries.   And we watch as Palestinians continue to alter the narrative against Jerusalem and Israel to influence world prejudice for similar gain – obliteration and replacement.

Islamism and Marxism in America may not even have to formally brandish their swords.  The end game is being carried out, beginning with the creation of a toxic environment, where the youth (soon to be adults) are divided into sensitive, vulnerable classes of mutual disrespect and contempt.  Also known as identity politics, the singling out of meaningless differences is a divide-and-conquer strategy by the power-hungry elites to control and prevent the groups from (re)uniting under common purpose.

Five Big Tech Companies

The left is using our own Constitution to eliminate our heritage and our freedoms by renaming sports teams, buildings, schools, and reducing our police forces, as the anarchists destroy memorial monuments and private property.  The left uses the coronavirus, suspected of being biowarfare, to force lockdowns and curtail our freedoms of speech, assembly, and privacy.  Their mask mandates, already acknowledged as ineffectual to harmful, have our population adjusting to Islamic face coverings.  Big Tech cancelled customers, including President Trump,  from using their communication systems (Facebook, Google, YouTube, Microsoft, Apple, Amazon), upon which the world has come to depend. The Patriot Act, an invasion of privacy, was used to spy on Americans, including our President.  The government is now working toward forced vaccinations for the masses, contrary to the Nuremberg Laws.  Are these not bold tyranny?  We may well wonder when they will decide to change our country’s name.  If the elephants remain psychologically hitched, they will be unable to join together as a significant force to save themselves from total socialism.

Who are the powerful and influential?  Bureaucrats, corporatists, intellectuals, the military’s upper echelon, the media, and government swamp creatures who are in sufficient control to manipulate others, whether monetarily or by sympathy and threats.  They embellish historic events to arouse accusations, defense, humiliations, envy, and anger, so as to elicit obedience, whether through speech or action, on the streets and in our government.  Continually using catchword accusations, such as racism and hate speech, they foster imbalance and fear, and censor for control. The students, impressionable and vulnerable, are weaponized to turn against each other and, in fact, against their own families, all in the name of “social justice.”  We see a reenactment of both Stalin’s Marxism and Hitler’s Nazism as our children are taught that the importance of the state supersedes that of their parents.

Their vocabulary is taking shape to comply with the party line, limited by fear, opinions remaining unuttered or withheld, tethered while the war evolves around them.  What young child today has not heard of transgenderism, white privilege, social justice, masks and quarantine, but how many of our children know of sandcastles, fairgrounds, circuses, and trapeze artists?  Our population is becoming quick to shut down whatever refutes the narrative, and teachers are advised that certain lesson plans need not be revealed to parents – which attacks our Tenth Amendment.

Early in the process of their acquiring control, the schools began training our youths to accept what they’re told without question or verification, proceed without thinking, considering, reasoning, or analyzing whether something is true or false.  Today they are forcing The 1619 Project into the curriculum, a verifiably false narrative about our history.  They offer “safe spaces,” a retreat of hot chocolate and Teddy bears for college students who are recoiling from reality and encouraged to remain immature.  Universities, once the springboard for entry into the outside world, have become shelters from new ideas as well as places of propaganda, where lecture halls host only speakers who spew the leftist agenda.

The latest assault, racial identity, is upon the natural and deserving progression of students due to merit alone, with claims for needing equity, equalized outcome for undereducated dark-skinned children, and the reward of benefits regardless of merit.  Those with higher grades, but white-skinned only, are said to be arrogant supremacists who earned those grades at the expense of others.   In essence, inadequacies remain unaddressed and unchallenged, with children not getting the help they need.  The quality of education is reduced to less than mediocre, and all are cheated merely because of skin color.  Rather than endeavor to find real solutions to societal ills and lower grades, the authorities sidestep the issues by blaming racism, the result being that the chains of control are tightened and tensions increased between the races.  The Biden administration is carrying this further into society by its recent announcement that only farmers of color would get subsidies because of the coronavirus, although all farmers were suffering from the virus, blights, and weather conditions.  It has just been announced that white farmers will sue the federal government.

We have entered an era of totalitarianism, where the features of our fundamental freedoms, guaranteed by the Bill of Rights, are being severely eroded.  We are losing our Freedom of Speech, upon which all other freedoms are based.  The small accusations of hate speech; the school curricula that change our language, history, and even the children’s self-perception; the overt lies in the media, and the technocrats who thwart our interaction with others, work in tandem.  To that, we have the manipulated voting ballots, an un-FDA-approved vaccination that we may not be allowed to refuse, and the virus masks and gathering bans that keep us estranged.  We Americans are in the Valley of Decision: we must either meekly comply with our own enslavement or resist.  The decision is ours . . . for now.

Florida Legislature Passes Bill to Regulate Social Media Corporations—But Excludes One Key Company

One of the most powerful companies in America was able to wriggle an exemption from Florida’s proposed law targeting social media companies.


The Florida state legislature recently passed—by overwhelming majorities in both of their Republican-controlled chambers—a new law that imposes fines on social media corporations for deplatforming political candidates.

Governor Ron DeSantis called for the legislation and is expected to sign it, which would make Florida the first state in the nation to enact such a policy.

The Florida bill prohibits social media companies from permanently deleting or banning political candidates, but allows suspensions of up to 14 days. It still allows services to remove individual posts that violate its terms of service as well.

If disobeyed, the state’s Elections Commission would be directed to fine a company $250,000 a day for statewide candidates and $25,000 a day for all others. Additionally, the law requires the companies to provide information about removals and to apply their rules consistently.

While Republican lawmakers have insisted this measure has nothing to do with former President Trump’s removal from Twitter, many have connected the dots between the two events.

Netchoice, a trade group for internet corporations, testified against the bill. Their president, Steve DelBianco, said that private entities should have the right to decide what’s best for their users without (government) interference. He went on to state, “The First Amendment makes clear that government may not regulate the speech of private individuals or businesses. This includes government action that compels speech by forcing a private social media platform to carry content that is against its policies or preferences.”

Republicans say the legislation is needed to curb the influence of the nation’s leading social media companies who have outsized influence over the national conversation, but notably, they exempted from the law the state’s most famous corporation: The Walt Disney Company.

A provision in the bill gives an exemption to “ any information service, system, internet search engine, or access software provider operated by a company that owns and operates a theme park or large entertainment complex.” This amendment was added towards the end of the process, proving the Tallahassee capitol may maintain more than a few mouseholes for Disney’s lobbyists.

Disney, as you may recall, recently “canceled” conservative Hollywood star Gina Carano, making the exemption all the more striking.

Republican State Representative Blaise Ingoglia said that exemption was included so that the Disney Plus streaming service “isn’t caught up in this.” Florida Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis says that 77 percent of the state’s budget is funded through tourism, and Disney brings in more than $700 million in tax revenue each year alone. Given these factors, it is unsurprising state lawmakers avoided any action that might spur Disney to move the cheese.

The law will inevitably be challenged in the courts where it will likely be overturned as unconstitutional. Forcing a private business to host speech by a political candidate is one of the most overt violations of the First Amendment’s right to free speech in modern history. And the carve-out for Disney means the law also violates the Fourteenth Amendment’s promise of equal application of the law. Lastly, the legislation violates Section 230, which ensures that First Amendment protections are applied in technology spaces.

In short, this law is an egregious violation of our Constitution, our founding principles, and our belief in individual liberty.

Disney is not wrong to lobby its way into an exclusion from an unjust and unconstitutional law, though it would be acting unethically if it initially lobbied for the bill and then worked to exclude itself. But their actions still show that the government is beholden to special interests, even while claiming to implement regulations that restrain them.

If applied, Florida’s bill would demolish small competitors who may be emerging in the field, while Facebook, YouTube, or Twitter could easily absorb the fine. Instead, officials who claim to value limited government should be working to remove regulations and make it easier for new competitors to enter the market.

It is clear that we are dealing with a culture (in politics, business, and the media) in which the spirit of free speech is increasingly under threat. But we don’t beat them by joining them or by using the government to violate free speech laws in the name of “protecting” free speech.

In this case, it is clear that the best laid plans of mice and men will go awry. It would be better to follow the plans laid out in the Constitution instead.

VIDEO: John Kerry’s Shocking Betrayal of U.S. Intelligence and Israel Security

Since Iran’s 1979 Revolution, the Islamic Republic has been widely identified as the world’s number one sponsor of terrorism. From then until now, the fanatical religious Iranian regime has funded, trained, armed, and launched clandestine attacks by numerous terrorist groups. Brookings Institute reports that Iran has backed “not only groups in its Persian Gulf neighborhood, but also terrorists and radicals in Lebanon, the Palestinian territories, Bosnia, the Philippines, and elsewhere. Iran calls this “exporting the Revolution.”

However, no country has been more repeatedly and specifically targeted by Iran — in word and deed and by proxies — than the Jewish State of Israel.

“Death to Israel” continues to be the hateful chant repetitively heard during Iran’s official state-sponsored rallies, parades and political gatherings. Iran’s tireless calls for the destruction of Israel is well-known by most Americans. And, of course, no one knows about Iran’s demands for violence and terrorism against Israel better than former U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry.

Yet, as we recently learned, John Kerry has apparently betrayed both America and Israel, and has done so with potentially deadly intelligence leaks about Israel to Iran.

As Tony Perkins recently explained on “Washington Watch,” according to news reports, Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif said John Kerry informed him about classified U.S. intelligence regarding some 200 Israeli strikes on Iranian targets in Syria.

In a shocking revelation, disclosed during a leaked three-hour recorded interview inside Iran, Zarif complained that Iran’s military has long kept him in the dark on crucial matters. He then said he had to find out about Israeli attacks against Iranian interests in Syria from none other than John Kerry.

In light of Zarif’s remarks, three GOP House Foreign Affairs Committee members wrote to the U.S. State Department’s Inspector General last Wednesday to demand an investigation into Kerry. The House member leading that charge, Congressman Andy Barr of Kentucky, serves on the House Foreign Affairs Committee. He spoke to Tony about Kerry’s alleged treachery.

“Imagine a former U.S. secretary of state,” Barr began, “divulging sensitive, perhaps classified top-secret military related information to a sworn enemy of the United States about our key ally in the region, the state of Israel. If these reports are true, not only did John Kerry undermine our critical American-Israeli alliance, he really turned his back on Israel. He betrayed Israel.”

Congressman Barr continued, “And, I would argue, because Israel is this island of moderation and a democracy in an otherwise very dangerous part of the world, Kerry really threatened and undermined U.S. national security interests as well. And this is a kind of a pattern for John Kerry. He has a very bad habit of cozying up with the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism.” We know this because he was not only the architect of the flawed Iran nuclear deal (JCPOA), but if these recent reports are true, he appears to be putting his own personal ego and his interest in salvaging this flawed deal way ahead of U.S. national security and certainly above the security of our friends in Jerusalem.”

Barr went on to say, “We know that John Kerry has admitted having two conversations with the Iranian foreign minister, Mohammad Zarif, during the period of time when Secretary Pompeo and the Trump administration — the previous administration — was directly in the process of withdrawing from the flawed agreement and reimposing sanctions and initiating a maximum pressure campaign.”

Barr explained, “If that timeline is accurate, then we have John Kerry working directly at odds with U.S. foreign policy, in something akin to a shadow diplomacy that was undermining the official policy of the United States. John Kerry was actively trying to undermine the official policy of the United States — a policy that was intended to reestablish deterrence against the world’s state sponsor of terrorism.”

Was John Kerry’s activity illegal? According to Congressman Barr, most likely it was. He, along with Congresswoman Ann Wagner (R-Mo.) and Congressman Lee Zeldin (R-N.Y.), have written to the State Department’s Inspector General asking for immediate answers to some key questions:

We want to know what the State Department knew and when they knew it. We want to know the status of John Kerry’s security clearance. We want to know whether these leaks and shadow diplomacy put the Israeli Defense Forces in danger of retaliation. We want to know if there were any retaliatory attacks launched on Israeli allies.”

Barr concluded, “We need to get to the bottom of this. And we want the State Department Inspector General to take it seriously.”

BRILLIANT: Florida will fine any business or school $5,000 each time it requires a ‘vaccine passport’ or proof of COVID-19 vaccination

Awesome governor. Imagine what America would be like if every state were governed like Florida. #DeSantis2024.

Senate OK needed to send Florida vaccine passport ban to DeSantis’ desk

By Washington Examiner, May 3, 2021

Florida will fine any business or school $5,000 each time it requires a “vaccine passport,” or proof of COVID-19 vaccination, for entry or participation under a bill bound for Gov. Ron DeSantis’ desk.

The House Wednesday passed Senate Bill 2006 in a 76-40 vote and sent it to the Senate to endorse a newly added amendment before the session ends Friday.

Sponsored by Sen. Danny Burgess, R-Zephyrhills, SB 2006 was passed by the Senate on April 22 in a 27-9 vote.

The 49-page SB 2006 amends the state’s Emergency Management Act to place limits on local emergency powers and installs fines for businesses or institutions that require vaccine documentation. The relatively technical amendment added Wednesday clarifies COVID-19 screening protocols.

Under SB 2006, violating the state’s vaccine passport ban would be punishable by fines up to $5,000 per violation.

Under another provision, local government emergency powers would be limited to 10 or 30 days. To extend the emergency order beyond 30 days, a vote needs to take place with a majority of voters approving the emergency order extension.

Opponents argued the bill infringes on business owners’ property rights and would impair the travel industry and the state’s cruise line operators, who say their customers want fellow travelers to be vaccinated.

“What about the cruise ship industry? What about the hospitality industry? They can’t make those decisions?” asked Rep. Michael Grieco, D-Miami Beach.

Rep. Omari Hardy, D-Lake Worth, said Republicans support for a vaccine passport ban undermines their pro-business claims, especially when it comes to the state’s $8 billion cruise industry and overall $90 billion tourist/hospitality economy.

“If you care about our business community as certain elected officials in this state say that they do, why would you prevent people from enacting policies that give their customers the assurance, the confidence, that they can walk into a business, and that they’ll be safe?” Hardy asked.

Rep. Tom Leek, R-Ormond Beach, who carried SB 2006’s House companion, said forcing people to be vaccinated to go to work or to patronize a business discounts legitimate concerns about the shots.

“We have vaccines, through some miracle of science, that work. We also must recognize that COVID-19 vaccines don’t have the same proven history as the same vaccines we require our schoolchildren to get,” Leek said. “We must recognize that vaccine hesitancy is real and understandable.”

Leek said the ban also prevents discrimination of minority communities with lower rates of vaccination.

“Let’s return to normal, but recognize that it is fair for certain segments of our community to be hesitant about getting the vaccine,” he said. “And it is absolutely true that the largest segment of our community that is vaccination hesitant is our minority population.”

Wednesday’s floor debate on SB 2006 occasionally evolved into a referendum on Gov. Ron DeSantis’ pandemic policies.

The governor – a leading 2024 GOP presidential candidate not named Donald Trump – has been promoting his open policies during the pandemic against “lockdown states” on national media circuits for months.

FASCISM: Simon & Schuster Employees Demand Publisher Drop Books They Disagree With

Over 200 employees of Simon & Schuster have gone full fascist, signing a petition calling on the publishing giant to stop providing a platform for everyone except fellow leftist fascists. The haters of the freedom of speech made three demands:

  1. Cancel the two-book deal with Mike Pence and do not sign any more book deals with former members of the Trump administration.
  2. End Simon & Schuster’s distribution deal with Post Hill Press [which publishes conservative books].
  3. Commit to ongoing reevaluations of all clients, authors, distribution deals, and all other financial commitments that promote white supremacist content and/or harm the aforementioned marginalized communities.

The fascists claimed that “when S&S chose to sign Mike Pence, we broke the public’s trust in our editorial process, and blatantly contradicted previous public claims in support of Black and other lives made vulnerable by structural oppression. Simon & Schuster has chosen complicity in perpetuating white supremacy by publishing Mike Pence and continuing to distribute books for Post Hill Press, including predator Matt Gaetz’s FIREBRAND. By choosing to publish Mike Pence, Simon & Schuster is generating wealth for a central figure of a presidency that unequivocally advocated for racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, anti-Blackness, xenophobia, misogyny, ableism, islamophobia, antisemitism, and violence. This is not a difference of opinions; this is legitimizing bigotry.”

Of course. No dissent from the left is a legitimate “difference of opinions,” because leftists see the world in a way that religious fanatics throughout history would find familiar: they alone have the vision of what is good and just, and since all those outside the fold are ignorant and evil, they have no rights that the arbiters of what constitutes acceptable opinion are bound to respect.

So far, however, Simon & Schuster’s chief executive Jonathan Karp has shown himself to be among the unredeemed. Karp reminded the fascists in his employ that the job of a publishing house was to allow for “a diversity of voices and perspectives.” Diversity! Karp’s choice of words must have driven the petitioners up the wall, because like all leftists, they are no doubt extremely proud of their commitment to “diversity” in all forms except, of course, a genuine diversity of thought. Black and brown and queer and trans voices and all the rest are welcome among them, as long as they all think the same way and say the same thing. But here was Karp gently making it clear that the petitioners weren’t really in favor of diversity in any meaningful way. “We come to work each day to publish, not cancel,” he said, “which is the most extreme decision a publisher can make.”

For that he will likely be canceled himself before too long.

The American left long ago embraced authoritarianism and fascism, and is increasingly intolerant of any point of view other than its own. Note that the petitioners included in its laundry list of denunciations the spurious propaganda neologism “Islamophobia.” “Islamophobia” is an illegitimate conflation of two distinct phenomena: crimes against innocent Muslims, which are never justified, and honest analysis of the motivating ideology of jihad terror, which is always necessary. It is inconceivable that anyone would want to publish a book calling for attacks on innocent Muslims or any innocent people, but there are many books discussing the motivating ideology of jihad terrorism.

Islamic advocacy groups and their leftist allies have been insisting for years that such books, too, constituted “Islamophobia.” Such analyses are what these fascists at Simon & Schuster want to stamp out. If the left succeeds in consolidating power, it will be impossible to publish, and likely illegal to enunciate publicly, any opposition to jihad violence and Sharia oppression of women and others, for there is no example of any such opposition not being considered “Islamophobic.”

The fascist employees also demanded that Simon & Schuster cut ties with my publisher, Post Hill Press (my last six books have been or are in the process of being published under Post Hill’s imprint, Bombardier Books), with which Simon & Schuster has a distribution arrangement. The petition libelously asserts that Post Hill “openly supports and normalizes violence against minors, Black women, and all Black people by individuals and the state.” This is, of course, not remotely true. It is how left-fascists lie in order to demonize and destroy their opponents. Although Karp has rejected this petition, expect to see much more of this sort of thing. We have not yet reached the high tide of left-fascism in America today.
