Political persecution: NC high school cheerleaders put on probation for posing with ‘Trump 2020’ banner

Source: Facebook

On Monday, Sept. 16, 2019, cheerleaders from North Stanly High School in New London, North Carolina, were put on probation for the remainder of the football season for posing with a Trump 2020 banner before a football game last August 30. The school district has not defined the terms of the probation and stated that the cheerleader team is expected to continue cheering.

The photo of the cheerleaders with the banner was posted on Facebook, prompting one commenter to write: “Why in the world would the school board allow this to happen. I am sad and very disappointed with NS. This is a High School football game, not a political rally. Shame on them.”

In a press release, North Stanly High School said:

  • During the football game that evening, the cheerleaders, while in uniform, held up a political campaign sign.
  • Neither Stanly County Schools nor North Stanly High School disciplined the cheerleaders for this action.
  • The focus of an athletic event should be on our students – not politics – which is why the school board has a policy that prohibits the distribution of political campaign material at school events or school publications. This policy is in place to ensure the school system remains neutral on political issues and the focus remains on our students. 
  • This policy does not prohibit students from speaking their minds or engaging in protected First Amendment activities. Because the cheerleaders were in uniform and were acting as representatives of the school, the display of the sign could be perceived as the school or school system endorsing a political campaign.  For this reason, the only action Stanly County Schools has taken is to ask the cheerleaders not to display the sign again.
  • Upon becoming aware of this matter, the North Carolina High School Athletic Association placed the cheerleading squad on probation for the remainder of the football season. Probation is not a punishment, but the school is put on notice that further actions or behaviors that go against NCHSAA Handbook Policy or expectations of sportsmanship and proper behavior by the same team or school will be subject to punishment, in accordance with Handbook Rule 3.2.
  • The NCHSAA did not suspend the cheerleading squad. The cheerleaders were present at the football game on September 13 and will be present at all remaining games during the season. 
  • The NCHSAA is the governing body for inter-scholastic athletics in North Carolina. As a member of the NCHSAA, Stanly County Schools is required to comply with all NCHSAA rules and regulations. 

NCHSAA Commissioner Que Tucker told McClatchy news group that probation is not punishment, but rather “serves as a notice of behavior or action that is against NCHSAA Handbook Policy or contrary to expectations of sportsmanship and proper behavior. One of the rules we have is that every contest should be conducted in a wholesome, athletic environment. We take that to mean that it’s in an environment where good sportsmanship is shown, where people feel safe…that respect for all people participating is being shown.”

The Stanly County School District also issued a statement saying:

Stanly County Schools respects the rights of its students, staff, and visitors to express their opinions in a respectful manner on their own time, however, Stanly County Board of Education policy prohibits the display or distribution of political advertisements on campus or at school events. Further, Stanly County Schools never makes political campaign endorsements. These policies ensure that all students, staff and visitors are able to attend school events in an environment that promotes students and not a particular political viewpoint.

Rep. Richard Hudson (R-NC) protested the probation. Hudson said in a letter to the NCHSAA:

I am appalled these students are being punished for exercising their First Amendment right to free speech. As leaders, we should be encouraging America’s youth to participate in our democracy and political process — not punishing them and silencing them. These North Stanly students respectfully displayed a sign and took a picture. They did not cause a scene, participate in a protest, or break any school code of conduct … At the end of the day, these students have a First Amendment right to free speech, and the NCHSAA should immediately reconsider thus unfair punishment. I ask this not only as the federal representative of Stanly County, but also as a proud graduate of North Carolina public schools and a former NCHSAA athlete.

Supporters of the cheerleading squad have planned an event this Friday, Sept 20, 6-8 pm. The announcement of the event on Facebook says:

The North Stanly High School cheerleaders have been wrongly put on probation by the North Carolina High School Athletic Association for the rest of the football season because of holding up a Trump banner before a home game on 8-30-2019. Please come out and help me show the school and the NCHSAA that freedom of speech is not dead. Please bring all your Trump and MAGA gear and let’s throw our support behind the North Stanly High School cheerleaders.

Does anyone seriously believe that these cheerleaders would be punished if they had held up a “Hillary Clinton 2016” banner?

California bank robber to get charged for cultural appropriation for wearing Mexican mask

Only in California.

Only in our upside-down America of 2019.

Stan Greene reports for the Santa Monica Observer that at 9:45 am yesterday, Sept. 18, 2019, a man wearing a Day of the Dead mask held up the Wells Fargo Bank on 9th St. and Montana Ave. in Santa Monica, California. Brandishing a shotgun, the suspect demanded money from the tellers, who were behind bulletproof window.

Witnesses described the suspect as a 6’4″ black male weighing 220 pounds, carrying a shotgun, and wearing a skeleton mask and blue shoe covers. A witness saw the masked bandit leave the bank with $3000 to $5000, scale an 8-ft. cinderblock wall, pass the Valet parking attendant and into a red SUV waiting in the alley.

Note: The Day of the Dead (Día de Muertos) is a Mexican holiday celebrated annually from October 31 to November 2 throughout Mexico and by people of Mexican heritage elsewhere, to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died. In 2008, the Mexican holiday was inscribed in the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO.

Santa Monica Police Department said in a press release that the bank robber is wanted on not just charges of bank robbery and assault, but also for “cultural appropriation”:

“It is important to recognize the inherent dignity of indigenous cultures. Use of a Day of the Dead Mask during a robbery can be a separate offense or an enhancement, under the California Penal Code. In this case, the suspect is sought for violating the rights of indigenous peoples, and for bank robbery.”

If sentenced, the bank robber could be made to attend training classes in cultural sensitivity and social justice, in addition to 20 years for bank robbery.

Wells Fargo Bank doubled its reward when they found out the charges against the robber include “cultural appropriation”. The bank said in a statement: “Wells Fargo Bank does not tolerate racism, cultural appropriation or discrimination of any kind.”

On Twitter, the bank robber is also accused of “cultural appropriation”. Below is a sample of the outraged tweets:

“Is this a bad joke or what? Día de los Muertos is one of our most sacred traditions in Mexico dating back to prehispanic days. STOP wearing Day of the Dead Masks now!”

“Cultural Appropriation Bank Robber is truly criminal. No! Day of the dead is a religious celebration for the indigenous ppl of Mexico. It is being used by white bank robbers to make $. No one believes a 6’4″ white dude celebrates Day of the dead. Cultural appropriation at its worst!”

Mattel is also being accused of “cultural appropriation” for releasing a limited-edition “Day of the Dead” Barbie in celebration of the Mexican holiday on November 2. The toy features “sugar skull” face paint, a headdress and a black, floral, Mexican dress and is available to buy at Walmart, Target and Amazon.com for $75.

Trump 2020 Campaign releases a devastating video of Dem frontrunner Joe Biden

In the latest National NBC/WSJ poll, taken on Sept. 13-16, of 506 Democrat primary voters, Joe Biden continues to lead:

Biden 31% (+5 from July)
Warren 25% (+6)
Sanders 14% (+1)
Buttigieg 7% (even)
Harris 5% (-8)
Yang 4% (+2)
Klobuchar 2% (+1)
Booker 2% (+1)

Trump 2020 campaign’s Trump War Room just released this devastating — and hilarious — video on Biden, the Demonrat frontrunner.

Townhall‘s Guy Benson writes:

If there’s any doubt about which 2020 Democrat Team Trump is working overtime to prevent from becoming their general election opponent, doubt no more.  The Trump campaign’s various social media feeds have been relentlessly negative about Biden for months — while criticizing others in the field, of course — and now the re-election crew has produced a truly brutal compilation of the former Vice President’s various gaffes and brain fog moments over the course of the still-young primary campaign.  Everyone is aware of Biden’s propensity to botch lines, ramble incoherently, and bungle facts; indeed, this flaw has barely fazed Democratic voters.  But watching so many of them in a single reel, interspersed with negative media analysis and fellow Democrats questioning his fundamental fitness as a candidate, is still an arresting experience

BBC teaches school-children there are more than 100 genders

Yesterday, our DCG posted about UK children as young as three getting “help” from the National Health Service (NHS) to change their gender via a simple Skype call.

The madness continues.

The state-owned and -operated British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) recently released a series of educational videos designed “in consultation with a PSHE education expert” for teachers to use with children aged 9-12.

Note: Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) Education is a school curriculum subject in England which focusses on developing the knowledge, skills and attributes to keep children and young people healthy and safe and to prepare them for life and work.

The BBC educational videos tell children there are more than 100 “gender identities,” and that people who disagree “just don’t know any better yet” and can be arrested and imprisoned for disagreeing.

Joseph Curl reports for the Daily Wire, Sept. 16, 2019, that the videos feature young children asking questions to teachers on a variety of subjects, including human sexuality, gender, and relationships:

  • In one episode titled “Understanding Sexual and Gender Identities,” the BBC says gender is not a biological assignment, but rather reflects “who you are inside.” One teacher tells the children: “There are so many gender identities. So we know we’ve got male and female, but there are over 100, if not more, gender identities now. You’ve got some people who might call themselves gender queer, who are just like, ‘I don’t really want to be anything in particular, I’m just going to be me.'”
  • In an episode called “The Big Talk,” a teacher tells children that they can be jailed if they are found to be “disrespecting or being hateful to people because of a difference that person perceives.”
  • The video includes Leo Lardie, a female-to-male transgender activist, telling the children about its “transition” and genitalia, and that the only way to happiness is to be “true about who I was, and let other people in on this.”
  • Another episode features a head teacher married to someone of the same sex, who suggests to the children that you “might be gay” if you like someone of the same sex “in a slightly different way than you do normally to your friends.”

The BBC “educational” video series has caused a stir in Britain:

  • Stephanie Davies-Arai, founder of Transgender Trend representing parents concerned about children and transgenderism, told the Sunday Times: “This is made-up nonsense. People are free to identify as anything they like, but this does not change the reality that there are only two sexes.
  • In a heated exchange with “gay” journalist Benjamin Butterworth who defends the BBC videos, Piers Morgan, former CNN host and nhe host of “Good Morning Britain,” asked, “Can I identify as a penguin at the Sealife Aquarium in London, that is currently being reared as gender-neutral, apparently has gay parents. Let me just say this, can I under this new world of self-identification, can I identify as a two-spirit, neutrois penguin?” Butterworth said, “Well, you’re not a penguin, use some common sense. That’s not a thing that happens.” But Morgan shot back: “How dare you tell me I can’t identify as that! How dare you offend me!” 

About the penguins, see DCG’s “Aquarium to raise ‘genderless’ penguin“.

NASCAR turns to the Left; rejects gun ads

The public perception of the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing (NASCAR) has always been that NASCAR is all-American, pro-Second Amendment, and in sync with red-state values.

No more.

Stephen Gutowski reports for The Washington Free Beacon, August 30, 2019, that two gun companies said NASCAR rejected their gun ads because of the racing company’s “gradual shift on guns”. Both gun companies said a NASCAR advertising agency had solicited ads from them for NASCAR publications, but when they submitted ads, they were told NASCAR would not accept them.

The two gun companies are:

(1) Dark Storm Industries:

Dark Storm said an ad it submitted featuring one of the company’s AR-15s was rejected. Dark Storm wrote in an Instagram post:

“NASCAR decided to turn their back on their customer base, joining the likes of Yeti, Dick’s and Under Armour. We were approached by a NASCAR publication eager to earn our business, but after submitting our ad it was immediately rejected, stating that we cannot depict ‘assault weapons’. As we have learned, NASCAR has made a ‘gradual shift’ but this doesn’t seem very gradual to us. It seems as though NASCAR has turned their back on the overwhelming majority of their fan base in the most embarrassing way possible.”

(2) Online retailer K-Var Corp:

K-Var said NASCAR rejected an ad featuring an AK-47 and 9mm handgun. An April email exchange between K-Var and National Event Publications, which books ads for NASCAR publications, obtained by the Washington Free Beacon shows the ad booker working with the gun dealer on final details of an ad for the souvenir program sold during the Race for the Cup series. Dave Dolbee, general manager of K-Var, said the company thought the ad would be good for brand awareness since the NASCAR audience is considered to be very gun-friendly and notable gun companies had previously advertised in the program. However, the ad company emailed Dolbee in August to say NASCAR rejected K-Var’s ad because of the firearms included in it. Sunny Berlin, art director for National Event Publications, told Dolbee in an email:

“We just heard back from NASCAR on a number of gun related ads and unfortunately due to a gradual shift in their position on guns, these ads must be edited/changed– especially those that are depicted as assault style rifles/sniper rifles. They are still open to some ads featuring some of the less controversial gun accessories, concealed carry, or classes. Can you supply a new ad that would fit more along these guidelines? NASCAR will then review again.”

Dolbee said:

  • K-Var was unable to get any clarification from NASCAR on what it considered an “assault style rifle” or “sniper rifle” or other details of their “gradual shift” on guns.
  • National Event Publications were “cagey about it when they gave me that 24-hour deadline to resubmit an ad.”
  • NASCAR had not even been clear with National Event Publications and did not provide “clear enough guidelines to say ‘it was exactly this in your ad or it was exactly that in your ad.'”

Dolbee told the Free Beacon K-Var refused to submit another ad:

“Naturally we took the position ‘absolutely not’. You can’t do ‘this gun’s good, that gun’s bad.’ You know? I said we wouldn’t deal with them at all if that was going to be the case. We could never go forward with that type of a policy.

It’s just bad for business. I’m somebody who grew up on NASCAR. My father was a huge fan. So, he of course brought me into the sport as a fan. And you see something with that type of a legacy and heritage, instead of being a sporting organization, try and play politics.”

Neither National Event Publications nor NASCAR responded to requests for comment on the policy change.

Backlash to NASCAR’s ban on gun ads was swift:

  • A headline at Outdoor Hub said: “Turning Left: NASCAR Bans Firearm Ads, Cites ‘Gradual Shift’ on Guns.”
  • All Outdoor said: “NASCAR Goes Anti-Gun, Bans Black Rifle Ads”.
  • Radio show host and lifelong NASCAR fan Mark Walters said in a piece for Ammoland that the shift in gun ad policy tells him the racing association is “no longer the NASCAR I thought I knew. Go ahead NASCAR, try to fill the stands with a bunch of David Hogg, Moms Demand Action, Everytown for Gun Safety, urban, progressive, skinny jean wearing, soy sipping, man-bun wearing, Antifa loving, gun-hating socialists. I won’t be around to see how that turns out for you.”

See “Supreme Court ruled in 2008 that Second Amendment applies to individuals, not militias, and may include military weapons,” Feb. 27, 2018.

Pope Francis says we should obey the United Nations

Pope Francis conceals the cross to not offend Jewish rabbis

On September 10, 2019, while jetting from Madagascar to Rome, Pope Francis gave an in-flight press conference in which he said:

“I would like to repeat the doctrine of the Church, that international organizations, when we understand we give them the ability to judge internationally. We think for example to the international court of AJA, and many times also the United Nations, when they speak. If we are a humanity we should obey. It is true that things do not always seem right for all humanity, they are right for our pockets, but you should obey international institutions, the United Nations was created for this.”

Senate Democrats introduce new gun-control bill: federal license, registration, red flag & gun confiscation

Six days ago on September 10, 2019, Demonrat senators Cory Booker (New Jersey) and Richard Blumenthal (Connecticut) introduced a new gun-control bill, S. 2449: Federal Firearm Licensing Act, which will:

(1) Require a federal license to acquire or receive firearms, “and for other purposes”: “In general…it shall be unlawful for any individual to purchase or receive a firearm unless the individual has a valid Federal firearm license.”

(2) A Federal firearm license is required for each firearm: “each license issued under this section shall be valid for the purchase of a single firearm”.

(3) Each license is valid for only 5 years.

(4) The federal license in turn means the federal and local governments will keep a registration of all gun owners in the U.S.: “a license issued under the system is available at a designated local office, which shall be located in both urban and rural areas.”

(5) To acquire the Federal firearm license will require:

  • Training in firearms safety, including (a) “a written test, to demonstrate knowledge of applicable firearms laws”; and (b) “hands-on testing, including firing testing, to demonstrate safe use and sufficient accuracy of a firearm”.
  • Proof of identity of the applicant.
  • Fingerprints of the applicant.
  • A thorough background check of the applicant.

(6) Red Flag: If it is determined that an individual “poses a significant danger of bodily injury to self or others by possessing, purchasing, or receiving a firearm,” s/he will be denied a gun license or if s/he already owns a gun(s), the license for which will be revoked and the firearm confiscated: “The Attorney General shall establish procedures to ensure that any firearm is removed from any individual when the individual’s license is revoked”.

Evil new sexual fetish: Couples repeatedly get pregnant, then abort

An evil person is somone who intentionally causes harm to another, whether by action or inaction.

As with all human attributes, evil is a continuum — an ordinal scale of more or less. The most evil is when one derives pleasure from intentionally inflicting harm on another.

By that definition, the new “breeding” sexual fetish is among the most evil.

Paul Joseph Watson of Summit News alerts us to a new sexual fetish of couples repeatedly getting pregnant then having their child aborted.

Watson alludes to a post on the chat-forum Reddit, wherein a Reddit user confided that her friend engages in this depraved and evil fetish with her male partner. Watson comments:

“Every day we stray further from God’s light…. Given that the left has turned abortion from something that used to be a shameful last resort into a celebrated virtue, it becoming a sexual fetish was always the next (il)logical step.”

I found the Reddit post and thread: click here.

Note that the spelling and grammatical mistakes in the Reddit quotes below are those of the Reddit posters.

The post was submitted by Reddit user u/Ooliava a year ago:

Question regarding abortions and breeding fetish

I have a female friend who has a really powerful fetish for breeding, she was never used any type of birth control. She is with a male partner currently who is just like her, into breeding and they have been practicing their fetish for quite a few abortions.

Responding to a comment, Ooliava writes more about her friend with the breeding fetish:

[S]he does it [abortion] in a hospital normally. It’s just that she likes getting impregnated and then lets it go on, she enjoys the nausea and the like symptoms knowing it arrives from pregnancy. She does the abortion in what she claims to be a safe time, before things get too difficult, I just want to know she is not putting herself in serious risk with her breeding fetish.

Another Reddit user Klaus-2018 writes:

I know this fetish. my girlfriend and me have the same fetish. My girlfriend enjoy her pregnancys and she enjoys the aborttation. Her preferred date for the abort is between 20 and 24 weeks of gestation. I enjoy it to make her pregnant. And i enjoy the time of her pregnancy. she has no menstrual period and she is sexual very aktive.

sexuality witout prevention is very emotional and inexpensive

in the last 10 years in our relationship we have done 7 aborts. and my girlfriend is pregnant again with a litle girl.

Aborttation fetish it is a great method for birth control

Reddit user Aborterrific applauds:

It is good (and rare) to hear of a couple (both man and woman) where both members are into abortion and pregnancy. This is a wonderful and potent example of personal power, where sex meets violence and creation combines with destruction.

Thank you for sharing your exciting romance and would like to know about how this latest abortion was for you. i can imagine that it is a very bonding experience between you and your partner.

Yet another Reddit user rapebreeder chimes in:

I have a breeding with strangers fetish where women I don’t know I impregnate. Not to brag, but I have knocked up over 40 women here in the United States and Europe. (I have a job where I travel). My main fetish is pregnancy risk fetish which I prefer to do with a girlfriend or female friend. We specifically have sex when she is fertile, but if I knock her up she has to have a baby. No abortion. It is a game of Russian Roulette. I was asked by a stranger to get her pregnant years ago because it turned her on and I just keep going with both.

These people are all going to Hell. Before that, they will face their Creator and will be confronted by all the babies they had aborted.

Sunday Devotional: The lost sheep

Jesus with black sheep by Jon McNaughton

Luke 15:1-7

Tax collectors and sinners were all drawing near to listen to Jesus,
but the Pharisees and scribes began to complain, saying,
“This man welcomes sinners and eats with them.” 
So to them he addressed this parable.
“What man among you having a hundred sheep and losing one of them
would not leave the ninety-nine in the desert
and go after the lost one until he finds it?
And when he does find it,
he sets it on his shoulders with great joy
and, upon his arrival home,
he calls together his friends and neighbors and says to them,
‘Rejoice with me because I have found my lost sheep.’
I tell you, in just the same way
there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents
than over ninety-nine righteous people
who have no need of repentance.”

May the peace and love of Jesus Christ our Lord be with you,
