There is an attack on America, today, coming from BDS, Boycott, Divest and Sanction, with the sole intent of destroying the country by attacking her at her very foundation, the Judeo/Christian ethic, which promotes freedom, free speech and free will and underpins the American Constitution.
Remember when Obama derided people who hold on to their guns and religion?
“You go into these small towns in Pennsylvania and, like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing’s replaced them… They get bitter, they cling to guns or religion…”
This was a direct salvo against the ethic that is meant to tie Americans, together.
This revolutionary, evolutionary ethic states all people are born with equal intrinsic value and all life is sacred. That means we never judge people based on their race, colour, creed, religion or sexual orientation; their characteristics, but rather their character. The ethic that came out of the desert 3500 years ago taught us that we are the subjects of our destiny, not the object of our fate. We are neither born into the manor nor to be subservient. We have what Jason D. Hill, author of We Have Overcome, professor of philosophy and Honors Distinguished Faculty at DePaul University in Chicago, calls moral agency: free will. And that same ethic promoted free speech. It was the prophet, Jeremiah, who died defending free speech.
BDS America is attempting to destroy America (because that is the sole purpose of BDS anywhere: to destroy); attacking America at its roots; first by denying her origins as a nation with a Constitution in 1776 by stating that America began in 1619. No it didn’t. The North American Continent was filled with British, French, English, Dutch, and Spanish colonies at that time. And then employing BDS tactics: boycotting and divesting of companies and censoring all that not fall into line with their left-wing ideology, aided and abetted by accusations of white oppression, diversity (divisiveness to divide and conquer), identity politics, and critical race theory, all supported by the Democrat Party; all contrary to her foundational ethic.
BDS is also working with BLM. Menka Sandrasagren, Development Intern at Minority Rights Group International explained the intersectionality of BLM and BDS.
“As settler-colonial States, both established on principles of white supremacy, the United States and Israel have had a long-standing relationship of solidarity that has spawned counter relationships of resistance between their subjugated groups.”
If this BDS America succeeds, the great experiment in freedom will die.
BDS in America is not new. BDS was first used in Nazi Germany to separate, alienate, bring the Jews to their knees, destory thier community and then murder them: all done legally via the Nuremberg Laws. BDS was used to bring the white supremacist government of South Africa to its knees, destroy the government in order to open the door to Nelson Mandel and the idea of equality. And now BDS is being used to eliminate, destroy, the only democracy in the Middle East, Israel, “Palestine will be free from the river to the sea”- because Israel is smack dab in the middle of the next Caliphate.
How does BDS America work? It targets politicians, journalists, professors, and businesses which refuse to bend the knee to their new ideology, with boycotts, divestment and sanctions.
I can think of nothing more evil in America, no greater attack on her Constitution than the calls by black people to white people to kneel before them and apologize for being white. Nothing. This call to kneel and the response is vile, divisive and malevolent. These are attacks on the very soul of America.
BDS America will not be happy with their calls for “diversity,” their attacks on “white privilege.” Oh no. They want to take down the “Republic for which it stands.”
For more than a year, mobs and rioters have destroyed or defaced thousands of American monuments, and not just those of Confederate generals. We have witnessed attacks on everything from the Lincoln Memorial to statues of Frederick Douglass and Miguel de Cervantes. In fear, officials have removed iconic statues such as those of Theodore Roosevelt and Christopher Columbus. We watched all summer as cities were burned and looted by Antifa, and the freedom loving Black Lives Matter, associates of BDS. Riots sparked by the police killing of George Floyd could cost insurance companies $1 billion to $2 billion. Demonstrations that sometimes descended into looting, arson and vandalism took place in more than 20 states from May 26 to June 8. Minority-owned businesses suffered at the hands of rioters and looters. We all witnessed city cores, like NY, boarded up.
What a way to divest. And yet, BLM, a major participant in the BDS campaign has been legitimized by a nomination for the Nobel PEACE Prize.
Thomas Sowell once said that property rights “belong legally to individuals, but their real function is social, to benefit vast numbers of people who do not themselves exercise these rights.” Nobel laureate economist and philosopher Friedrich Hayek made a similar point, remarking that “The system of private property is the most important guarantee of freedom, not only for those who own property, but scarcely less for those who do not.”(emphasis mine)
Let’s take a look at the BDS America pressure to silence opposition with boycotts and calls for divestment.
BDS America is taking down companies that supported Donald Trump and therefore the Republicans who voted for him
Nathan Lerner, executive director at the Democratic Coalition Against Trump launched the Boycott Trump app, last November, a simple database that allows consumers to know which companies support Donald Trump.
“By boycotting companies that are supporters of Trump, consumers can hurt Trump and his allies where it hurts most—their wallets.” Boycott Trump app has more than 325,000 users and lists about 250 companies that the app’s developers believe are pro-Trump. Another app called Buycott allows consumers to avoid certain products by scanning the barcodes of items in the store aisle and learning whether the manufacturer supports Trump. The app’s “companies to avoid” include KitchenAid,, New Balance and Miller Coors.
DoneGood, an organization devoted to outing “Trump” companies shared the names of all corporations that supported Trump for 2020. Forbes called it “The Amazon for Social Good.”
I don’t recall a hit list like that for the Democrats.
My Pillow, an American company that hires American workers, sells made in America products is under attack because the owner, Mike Lindell supported Donald Trump.
When in American history has the Party in power called for the banning of people in the Military for supporting a different political party?
But it happens in fascist governments.
Microsoft said its political action committee won’t contribute to upcoming campaigns for members of U.S. Congress who voted against confirming the Electoral College results of the 2020 presidential election. Pardon me?
Hallmark Cards Inc., a family owned company based in Kansas City, Missouri, and a large employer, requested Missouri Senator Josh Hawley and Kansas Senator Roger Marshall, both of whom objected to Biden’s certification, return all campaign contributions. The announcements by Dow Inc., American Express and Marriott International, among others, threaten to throttle fundraising resources for Republicans. This is spreading like wildfire.” Jeffrey Sonnenfeld, a professor at Yale University’s management school who consults with CEOs, told the Associated Press. “The US business community has interests fully in alignment with the American public and not with Trump’s autocratic bigoted wing of the GOP.”
But BLM, Antifa and previous calls by Democrats to attack Republicans is OK.
One of the greatest dangers to America from BDS is the censoring of differing opinions in an atmosphere of calls for “diversity.” It is free speech (from the Bible) which enables a “marketplace of ideas.”
While BDS America calls for honouring diversity regarding people, there is no diversity of opinion permitted. It is no secret that Main Stream Media is the propaganda arm of the Left. What is more frightening is that Big Tech supports one party; the Democrat Party. Google, Apple, Facebook, Amazon and Twitter do everything in its power to censor, silent the right. Donald Trump, as Public Enemy No. 1, was banned from Twitter for life and barred from most other social media indefinitely. So were many conservatives, some high-profile, some you’ve never heard of.
For those illiterate in history – this is Fascism.
According to AOC, this is great. If you are a supporter of Donald Trump you are not allowed to share your opinion, anywhere. “Is anyone archiving these Trump sycophants for when they try to downplay or deny their complicity in the future?” she wrote. “I foresee decent probability of many deleted Tweets, writings, photos in the future.”
A group calling itself the Trump Accountability Project is following in the footsteps of AOC and promotes the deletion of Tweets, writings, photos in the future of those who are Trump Republicans.That is 75 million people. “Remember what they did,” the group’s sparse website declares. “We should not allow the following groups of people to profit from their experience: Those who elected him. Those who staffed his government. Those who funded him.”
The “enemies’ list is rarely a healthy sign in any democracy. How is this different from China, Russia, Iran?
Our children in university are being taught to stifle free speech. Chicago University student author Kelly Hui wrote:
“emphasis on free speech, which is so often used as a right-wing talking point (emphasis mine), opens up room for bigoted language and bigoted actions, and how university administrations—including our own—enable this. In a post-insurrection society, we must re-examine the Chicago principles and find a way to balance freedom of academic inquiry with protecting our marginalized students and creating an inclusive community for all.”
Senator Josh Hawley’s book was dropped by Simon and Shuster for his political views but thankfully was picked up by Regnery. This is modern day book burning as is the removal of books deemed racist by “woke” people.
At the same time, BDS America is calling for “deprogramming” young people who hold Conservative views.
President Biden is busy calling on social media platforms to reduce hate speech. One must ask who is defining hate speech and who is implementing the “reduction?”
Journalists, like Lou Dobbs, who supported Trump have been taken off the air while on-air personalities like Rachel Maddow and Don Lemon continue with their left-wing propaganda. Nicholas Kristof of the New York Times called for “pressure on advertisers to withdraw from Fox News so long as it functions as an extremist madrasa.” Thomas Friedman in the Times called for a business boycott of some Fox News shows and announced that Facebook needs to “surprise us by once and for all stopping the elevation—for profit—of news that divides and enrages over more authoritative, evenhanded news sources.” Max Boot in The Washington Post argued for legal and extra-legal consequences against “a whole infrastructure of incitement” guilty of aiding and abetting Trump’s grotesque riot. “We need to shut down the influencers who radicalize people and set them on the path toward violence and sedition.” (I don’t recall a word from him, or anyone on the left, when America was put to the match by left-wing Antifa and BLM; CNN and MSNBC referred to them as “peaceful.”)
The “we” here includes “large cable companies such as Comcast and Charter Spectrum” who Boot believes should drop Fox News, Newsmax, and One America News. Boot notes that he is “a global affairs analyst” at CNN, meaning that he is explicitly arguing for his personal competition to be thrown off the airwaves by the combined forces of government and corporate power.
The Associated Press: “Just a reminder that neither @Verizon, @ATT, nor @comcast have answered any questions about why they beam channels like OAN & Newsmax into millions of homes,” media reporter Oliver Darcy recently tweeted, in promoting a CNN segment dedicated to the urgent issue of throwing other cable networks off television. “Do they have any second thoughts about distributing these channels given their election denialism content? They won’t say.”
Alex Stamos, former Facebook chief security officer and a Stanford adjunct professor, said on CNN that “we have to turn down the capability of these conservative influencers to reach these huge audiences,” especially on “the Facebooks and YouTubes.” Veteran “journalist” Katie Couric says “the question is how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump,” and ABC political director Rick Klein insisted there needs to be a “cleansing” of the Trump movement, which is “straight-up fascist rhetoric.”
Only Glenn Greenwald, an independent left-leaning journalist, said the “real aim” of the “new domestic war on terror” is “to criminalize that which should not be criminalized: speech, association, protests, opposition to the new ruling coalition.”
Then there is the sanctioning of Republicans for being Republican. Inclusivity does not include Republicans aka Trump voters. A Latina model– Latina-was fired because she supported Trump.
A literary agent was fired for signing on to alternative social media platforms! Someone found her and voila-gone. Ahh snitches.
A woman performing sign language for a Biden presentation was called out and attacked because she voted for Trump. What if she misleads people in her signing? What?
Kevin Roos, a New York Times reporter has suggested President Biden appoint a “reality czar,” who would lead “a cross-agency task force to tackle disinformation and domestic extremism… can help solve our reality crisis.”
Former CIA officer Kevin Carroll wrote in the Washington Examiner. “We defeated al Qaeda and can do the same to the fascist thugs who attacked our democracy last month, but only if we take similar hard measures against the enemy within.”
Enemy within. Aided and abetted by snitching – a tactic beloved by all Fascist governments.
BDS America, using the events of January 6, has led to the encirclement of the Washington Capitol protected by the military as a sign that America is under attack.
Because it is under attack from BDS America. Still marching through the Capitol calling for its destruction.
The late great Canadian journalist, George Jonas wrote “Don’t let Western civilization—the best and most humane form of civilization developed by mankind—perish by default.”
If left unopposed, BDS will destroy America.
Silence is collusion.
