The (second) American Civil War is already here

Do you, like I, have the sense that although Clinton lost and Trump won the election, things are even worse than before?

Daniel Greenfield, an expert on radical Islam and a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, has written a stunning and searingly truthful article that explains why things are even worse today.

That’s because the Left, having lost the election, are now in open rebellion against nothing less than our system of government. We are in a second American civil war — a war that stems from irreconcilable differences between conservatives and the Left who have formed a treasonous anti-government.

Nor can our differences be resolved by secession, because the Left do not want to secede. They want total control.

Below is Greenfield’s article in its entirety. I cannot recommend it more highly.

The Civil War Is Here

The left doesn’t want to secede. It wants to rule.

Daniel Greenfield • March 27, 2017 • Frontpage Mag

A civil war has begun.

This civil war is very different than the last one. There are no cannons or cavalry charges. The left doesn’t want to secede. It wants to rule. Political conflicts become civil wars when one side refuses to accept the existing authority. The left has rejected all forms of authority that it doesn’t control.

The left has rejected the outcome of the last two presidential elections won by Republicans. It has rejected the judicial authority of the Supreme Court when its decisions don’t accord with its agenda. It rejects the legislative authority of Congress when it is not dominated by the left.

It rejected the Constitution so long ago that it hardly bears mentioning.

It was for total unilateral executive authority under Obama. And now it’s for states unilaterally deciding what laws they will follow. (As long as that involves defying immigration laws under Trump, not following them under Obama.) It was for the sacrosanct authority of the Senate when it held the majority. Then it decried the Senate as an outmoded institution when the Republicans took it over.

It was for Obama defying the orders of Federal judges, no matter how well grounded in existing law, and it is for Federal judges overriding any order by Trump on any grounds whatsoever. It was for Obama penalizing whistleblowers, but now undermining the government from within has become “patriotic”.

There is no form of legal authority that the left accepts as a permanent institution. It only utilizes forms of authority selectively when it controls them. But when government officials refuse the orders of the duly elected government because their allegiance is to an ideology whose agenda is in conflict with the President and Congress, that’s not activism, protest, politics or civil disobedience; it’s treason.

After losing Congress, the left consolidated its authority in the White House. After losing the White House, the left shifted its center of authority to Federal judges and unelected government officials. Each defeat led the radicalized Democrats to relocate from more democratic to less democratic institutions.

This isn’t just hypocrisy. That’s a common political sin. Hypocrites maneuver within the system. The left has no allegiance to the system. It accepts no laws other than those dictated by its ideology.

Democrats have become radicalized by the left. This doesn’t just mean that they pursue all sorts of bad policies. It means that their first and foremost allegiance is to an ideology, not the Constitution, not our country or our system of government. All of those are only to be used as vehicles for their ideology.

That’s why compromise has become impossible.

Our system of government was designed to allow different groups to negotiate their differences. But those differences were supposed to be based around finding shared interests. The most profound of these shared interests was that of a common country based around certain civilizational values. The left has replaced these Founding ideas with radically different notions and principles. It has rejected the primary importance of the country. As a result it shares little in the way of interests or values.

Instead it has retreated to cultural urban and suburban enclaves where it has centralized tremendous amounts of power while disregarding the interests and values of most of the country. If it considers them at all, it is convinced that they will shortly disappear to be replaced by compliant immigrants and college indoctrinated leftists who will form a permanent demographic majority for its agenda.

But it couldn’t wait that long because it is animated by the conviction that enforcing its ideas is urgent and inevitable. And so it turned what had been a hidden transition into an open break.

In the hidden transition, its authority figures had hijacked the law and every political office they held to pursue their ideological agenda. The left had used its vast cultural power to manufacture a consensus that was slowly transitioning the country from American values to its values and agendas. The right had proven largely impotent in the face of a program which corrupted and subverted from within.

The left was enormously successful in this regard. It was so successful that it lost all sense of proportion and decided to be open about its views and to launch a political power struggle after losing an election.

The Democrats were no longer being slowly injected with leftist ideology. Instead the left openly took over and demanded allegiance to open borders, identity politics and environmental fanaticism. The exodus of voters wiped out the Democrats across much of what the left deemed flyover country.

The left responded to democratic defeats by retreating deeper into undemocratic institutions, whether it was the bureaucracy or the corporate media, while doubling down on its political radicalism. It is now openly defying the outcome of a national election using a coalition of bureaucrats, corporations, unelected officials, celebrities and reporters that are based out of its cultural and political enclaves.

It has responded to a lost election by constructing sanctuary cities and states thereby turning a cultural and ideological secession into a legal secession. But while secessionists want to be left alone authoritarians want everyone to follow their laws. The left is an authoritarian movement that wants total compliance with its dictates with severe punishments for those who disobey.

The left describes its actions as principled. But more accurately they are ideological. Officials at various levels of government have rejected the authority of the President of the United States, of Congress and of the Constitution because those are at odds with their radical ideology. Judges have cloaked this rejection in law. Mayors and governors are not even pretending that their actions are lawful.

The choices of this civil war are painfully clear.

We can have a system of government based around the Constitution with democratically elected representatives. Or we can have one based on the ideological principles of the left in which all laws and processes, including elections and the Constitution, are fig leaves for enforcing social justice.

But we cannot have both.

Some civil wars happen when a political conflict can’t be resolved at the political level. The really bad ones happen when an irresolvable political conflict combines with an irresolvable cultural conflict.

That is what we have now.

The left has made it clear that it will not accept the lawful authority of our system of government. It will not accept the outcome of elections. It will not accept these things because they are at odds with its ideology and because they represent the will of large portions of the country whom they despise.

The question is what comes next.

The last time around growing tensions began to explode in violent confrontations between extremists on both sides. These extremists were lauded by moderates who mainstreamed their views. The first Republican president was elected and rejected. The political tensions led to conflict and then civil war.

The left doesn’t believe in secession. It’s an authoritarian political movement that has lost democratic authority. There is now a political power struggle underway between the democratically elected officials and the undemocratic machinery of government aided by a handful of judges and local elected officials.

What this really means is that there are two competing governments; the legal government and a treasonous anti-government of the left. If this political conflict progresses, agencies and individuals at every level of government will be asked to demonstrate their allegiance to these two competing governments. And that can swiftly and explosively transform into an actual civil war.

There is no sign that the left understands or is troubled by the implications of the conflict it has initiated. And there are few signs that Democrats properly understand the dangerous road that the radical left is drawing them toward. The left assumes that the winners of a democratic election will back down rather than stand on their authority. It is unprepared for the possibility that democracy won’t die in darkness.

Civil wars end when one side is forced to accept the authority of the other. The left expects everyone to accept its ideological authority. Conservatives expect the left to accept Constitutional authority. The conflict is still political and cultural. It’s being fought in the media and within the government. But if neither side backs down, then it will go beyond words as both sides give contradictory orders.

The left is a treasonous movement. The Democrats became a treasonous organization when they fell under the sway of a movement that rejects our system of government, its laws and its elections. Now their treason is coming to a head. They are engaged in a struggle for power against the government. That’s not protest. It’s not activism. The old treason of the sixties has come of age. A civil war has begun.

This is a primal conflict between a totalitarian system and a democratic system. Its outcome will determine whether we will be a free nation or a nation of slaves.

Miley Cyrus and Pizzagate

WARNING: Adult-theme images

We are familiar with Miley Cyrus’ obscene scantily-clad public displays: twerking, simulating masturbation, mounting a giant penis, licking a gigantic penis birthday cake, sitting with her legs splayed wide open, incessantly sticking out her tongue, mimicking the horned demon Krampus, and so on.

And then, of course, there’s this Vanity Fair picture of Billy Ray Cyrus with his then-teenage daughter Miley, looking more like lovers than father-and-daughter:

Some FOTM readers have suggested that Miley displays all the signs of having been sexually abused.

The other day, I accidentally stumbled across pizza-themed pics of herself that Miley had posted to Instagram. Now that Pizzagate has sensitized us to “pizza” as a pedophile code word for young girls, these pizza-themed pics of Miley take on new, sinister meaning.

On December 29, 2014, Miley posted on Instagram a picture of herself in a pizza hat and onesie:

Miley likes pizza so much she covered her bed with a sickening-looking pepperoni pizza bedspread (source):

Here’s Miley posing on the pizza bedspread, once again with her tongue sticking out:

Here she is making an obscene gesture with her tongue at her birthday cake shaped like a giant pizza:

Do you remember Miley posing with giant teddy bears? Here’s an account of Miley at the 2013 MTV Music Awards (Hollywood Reporter):

Miley Cyrus climbed out of a giant teddy bear, sticking her tongue out of the side of her mouth.

She then strutted around the stage, accompanied by dancers wearing giant teddy bears, performing her controversial single “We Can’t Stop.”

Sporting a furry bustier designed to match the teddy bear motif, the 20-year-old singer at one point grabbed the rear end of one of her dancers before bending over to shake her own behind at the audience.

I had found the teddy bear to be disquieting, although I did not know why.

Beginning in the early 1950s, the CIA conducted mind control experiments on human subjects in a program called Project MKUltra. The experiments were intended to identify and develop drugs and procedures to be used in interrogations and torture, in order to weaken the individual to force confessions through mind control. The program engaged in many illegal activities, including the use of unwitting U.S. and Canadian citizens as its test subjects, the manipulation of people’s mental states and brain functions via the surreptitious administration of drugs (especially LSD) and other chemicals, hypnosis, sensory deprivation, isolation, verbal and sexual abuse, as well as other forms of psychological torture.

Project MKUltra was officially halted in 1973 — or so they say.

According to Vigilant Citizen, “Young mind control victims are often given Teddy Bears by their handlers to make them develop an emotional attachment to them. This attachment is then exploited by the handlers to create emotional trauma.”

Now we know the significance of Miley Cyrus and those giant teddy bears.

While searching on the net for “pedo-bear,” I found that Cafe Press actually sells “Mk Ultra Teddy Bears”.

Sick.

Et tu, Gateway Pundit? Report on yesterday’s Pizzagate March on D.C. disappeared into the memory hole

Memory Hole (definition):

A mechanism for the alteration or disappearance of inconvenient or embarrassing documents, photographs, transcripts, or other records, such as from a website or other archive, particularly as part of an attempt to give the impression that something never happened. The concept was first popularized by George Orwell’s dystopian novel Nineteen Eighty-Four, where the Party’s Ministry of Truth systematically re-created all potential historical documents, in effect, re-writing all of history to match the often-changing state propaganda.

Yesterday, March 25, 2017, as planned, there was a protest in front of the White House to raise awareness about Pizzagate.

The protest was planned to begin at 11 a.m.

At 12:09 p.m., AltMedia powerhouse Gateway Pundit published a report by its correspondent Lucian Wintrich on the protest, “#Make America Great Again Vets Rally Alongside #PizzaGate Protesters in Washington, D.C.“. That evening, FOTM received Wintrich’s article in an email from reader “GiGi”. By that time, the article had garnered 65 comments from Gateway Pundit‘s readers.

Wintrich’s article consisted of 4 photos of the protest, some pics taken at an earlier date of the interior of Comet Ping Pong, and two paragraphs of text written by Wintrich. Below are 2 pics from the protest.

This is what Lucian Wintrich wrote:

Outside the White House, hundreds have gathered to both show support for President Donald J. Trump while others gathered to raise awareness over the controversial #PizzaGate conspiracy. For those of you who might not know, #PizzaGate believers allege that a Washington pizzeria, named Comet Ping-Pong, is the home of a global pedophilia and child sex abuse ring organized by people including Hillary Clinton, Jon Podesta, among and other leading Democrats and members of the DNC.

While a member of The Gateway Pundit reporting staff did venture down to Comet Ping-Pong to investigate, the only thing we came away with is the fact the pizzeria is very creepy and does not seem child-friendly at all. We were not able to prove or confirm allegations of child trafficking, just creepiness (see pictures below, taken by a Gateway Pundit reporter inside Comet Ping-Pong).

Here are 4 pics of Comet Ping Pong in Lucian Wintrich’s article:

Early this morning, when I clicked on the embedded link to Wintrich’s article (http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2017/03/maga-vets-rally-alongside-pizzagate-protesters-washington-d-c/), I got this message:

Not found, error 404

The page you are looking for no longer exists. Perhaps you can return back to the site’s homepage and see if you can find what you are looking for. Or, you can try finding it by using the search form below.

I did just that:

  • I went on Gateway Pundit‘s home page (http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/) and scrolled through its recently published articles. There is no article titled “#Make America Great Again Vets Rally Alongside #PizzaGate Protesters in Washington, D.C.“.
  • I searched for “PizzaGate protesters,” “PizzaGate protest,” “vets rally”. Again, there is no article titled “#Make America Great Again Vets Rally Alongside #PizzaGate Protesters in Washington, D.C.“.
  • I then went on Lucian Wintrich’s author’s page (http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/author/lucian/). As you can verify for yourself, the page shows that Wintrich’s most recent article was published on March 22, 2017 on London Mayor Sadiq Khan. The page shows no article written by Wintrich since March 22, and most certainly no article on the Pizzagate protest.

In other words, Wintrich’s Pizzagate protest article had been disappeared into the memory hole, with no explanation from Gateway Pundit.

A day before the Pizzagate protest, Alex Jones of InfoWars, another AltMedia powerhouse, publicly apologized to James Alefantis — the owner of Comet Ping Pong whom GQ magazine named the 49th most powerful person in Washington, D.C. — for having broadcast videos and published articles on Pizzagate, which Jones now calls “an incorrect narrative”. See “Alex Jones apologizes for Pizzagate ‘fake news’ on eve of March on D.C.“.

Sure looks like the Alex Jones virus has infected Gateway Pundit as well.

Update (March 27, 2017):

Although Gateway Pundit took down Wintrich’s report, it is preserved (for now) in the Internet archive, aka Way Back Machine. Here’s the link.

Alex Jones apologizes for Pizzagate ‘fake news’ on eve of March on D.C.

“Pizzagate” is the term given to speculations and assertions that there is a pedophile network connecting powerful Democratic Party élites and two Washington, D.C. pizzerias, Besta Pizza and Comet Ping Pong. The latter is owned by James Alefantis, listed by GQ as the 49th most powerful person in D.C. and a former boyfriend of Clinton crony and Democratic Party operative David Brock of Media Matters.

Below is a picture that Alefantis posted to his Instagram account (source: The Tap Blog). After this and other pictures were uncovered by 4chan, his account is no longer accessible to the public:

Using Comet Ping Pong’s Instagram account, a Comet Ping Pong barman named joshuaryanv posted an obscene picture of two people having sex on top of a giant slice of pizza. To see the pic, click here.

Given the gravity of the accusations and the many compelling circumstantial evidence, it is curious that no official investigation has been made by either law enforcement or the MSM. See “Failure of American Journalism: Pizzagate and the muzzling of Ben Swann”.

Today, March 25, beginning at 11 a.m., there will be a peaceful demonstration in Lafayette Park across from the White House, asking for an official investigation into Pizzagate.

Yesterday, on the eve of the planned March on D.C. against pedophiles, InfoWars’ Alex Jones publicly apologized for having propagated fake news (“an incorrect narrative”) on Pizzagate.

Jones’ apology was specifically directed at Alefantis who, last month (February 2017), wrote Jones asking that InfoWars retract statements made about Alefantis although:

  • Jones had already removed broadcasts concerning Alefantis from both InfoWars’ website and social media.
  • Jones and InfoWars already had “dissociated” themselves from Pizzagate months ago in December 2016.

Despite all that, Alex Jones still felt compelled to issue a public apology, not just to Alefantis, but for participating in the Pizzagate narrative in general. Moreover, Jones blames his Pizzagate involvement on others — “third party accounts of alleged activities and conduct at” Comet Ping Pong, as well as “accounts of reporters who are no longer with us.”

Here is Alex Jones’ “A Note to Our Listening, Viewing and Reading Audiences Concerning Pizzagate Coverage” (I added the bold highlight in red):

Last fall before the Presidential election, a large number of media outlets began reporting on allegations arising from emails released by Wikileaks that appeared to come from John Podesta, who served Presidents Clinton and Obama and was the chairman of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.

Dozens of those stories and articles raised or discussed theories that some of Podesta’s emails contained code words for human trafficking and/or pedophilia. Stories also included allegations connecting members of the Democratic Party with a number of restaurants involved with a child sex ring. These stories were cited and discussed in social media and went viral on the Internet.

One of the persons mentioned in many of the stories in the media was a Washington, D.C. restaurant owner named James Alefantis, and his pizza  restaurant Comet Ping Pong. It is fair to say that Mr. Alefantis is a prominent individual who has been mentioned as a power player in Washington. Mr. Alefantis and his restaurant were mentioned in many stories published by a lot of different outlets. Mr. Alefantis was quoted in many subsequent stories, and he denied any involvement in such child sex rings. These denials were reported in national media and many other media outlets and news websites.

The volume of stories was substantial, generated national headlines and came to be known across the country as “Pizzagate.” We at Infowars became a part of that discussion. We broadcast commentary about the allegations and the theory that the emails contained code words. We raised questions about information in Mr. Podesta’s emails and the Comet Ping Pong restaurant. We believed at that time that further investigation was necessary. In December 2016 we disassociated ourselves from the “Pizzagate” claims and theories, a position we reiterated last month after being contacted by Mr. Alefantis.

In late February 2017, we received a letter from Mr. Alefantis asking that we retract certain statements that he says were made in seven of our broadcasts between the last week of November and the first week of December 2016. We have attempted, through our lawyers, to contact Mr. Alefantis to discuss with him what sort of statement he would like to see made.

In our commentary about what had become known as Pizzagate, I made comments about Mr. Alefantis that in hindsight I regret, and for which I apologize to him. We were participating in a discussion that was being written about by scores of media outlets, in one of the most hotly contested and disputed political environments our country has ever seen. We relied on third party accounts of alleged activities and conduct at the restaurant. We also relied on accounts of reporters who are no longer with us. This was an ever-evolving story, which had a huge amount of commentary about it across many media outlets.

As I have said before, what became a heightened focus on Mr. Alefantis and Comet Ping Pong by many media outlets was not appropriate. To my knowledge today, neither Mr. Alefantis, nor his restaurant Comet Ping Pong, were involved in any human trafficking as was part of the theories about Pizzagate that were being written about in many media outlets and which we commented upon.

I want our viewers and listeners to know that we regret any negative impact our commentaries may have had on Mr. Alefantis, Comet Ping Pong, or its employees. We apologize to the extent our commentaries could be construed as negative statements about Mr. Alefantis or Comet Ping Pong, and we hope that anyone else involved in commenting on Pizzagate will do the same thing.

Here’s what we have done to clarify to the public. Months ago we took down the majority of broadcasts/videos including ones that only mentioned Pizzagate. This happened months before we were even contacted by Mr. Alefantis. Mr. Alefantis objected to portions of seven particular radio broadcasts. We have taken down those seven broadcasts and we have attempted to take down any broadcasts that mentioned Mr. Alefantis or Comet Ping Pong. We have attempted to do so not just on our website but also social media sites such as our YouTube channel. If Mr. Alefantis has other objections, we invite him to let us know. Two reporters who used to be associated with us are no longer with us. In a recent broadcast, I invited Mr. Alefantis on our program to state what he wanted to, and I again do so here. He has given interviews to many media outlets, and he is welcome to come on our show.

In issuing this statement, we are not admitting that Mr. Alefantis, or his restaurant, have any legal claim. We do not believe they do. But we are issuing this statement because we think it is the right thing to do. It will be no surprise to you that we will fight for children across America. But the Pizzagate narrative, as least as concerning Mr. Alefantis and Comet Ping Pong, we have subsequently determined was based upon what we now believe was an incorrect narrative. Despite the fact that we were far from the genesis of this story, it is never easy to admit when your commentaries are based on inaccurate information, but we feel like we owe it to you the listeners, viewers and supporters to make that statement, and give an apology to you and to Mr. Alefantis, when we do.

We encourage you to hold us accountable. We improve when you do.

Alex Jones,
Infowars

In a departure from standard InfoWars practice, readers are prevented from commenting on Jones’ apology as “Comments for this thread are now closed”.

Jones’ curious timing — issuing a public apology for having engaged in the “incorrect narrative” about Pizzagate on the eve of the March on D.C. to raise public awareness on Pizzagate — can only discredit today’s March, as well as any and all efforts in the Alternative Media to uncover and shed light on D.C. pedophilia.

That there are pedophiles in Washington, D.C. is not farfetched given the Franklin child sex-ring scandal of 1988-1991 which involved GOP élites in Washington, D.C., and Nebraska’s Boys Town and assorted prominent citizens. The scandal is documented in two books:

Then there is the more recent case of former Congressman and House Speaker Dennis Hastert (R-Illinois) who, in April 2016 at his sentencing hearing, admitted under pressure from the judge that he had sexually abused boys. The judge in the case called Hastert a “serial child molester” and imposed a sentence of 15 months in prison, two years’ supervised release, and a $250,000 fine.

David Seaman asks “What do they have on a man [Alex Jones] who’s been so vocal on other issues plaguing our society, what did they have on him that the day before the national protest against Pizzagate and against Pedogate he has to issue a public apology?”

Fake Anti-Semitism: Dual US-Israeli citizens made bomb threats against Jewish groups

We are awash in fakery. Nothing is what it seems.

Our intelligence agencies concoct fake intelligence. The DSM (Deep State Media) report fake news. Go to end of this post for links.

We can add fake anti-Semitism to the ever-growing list of fakery.

Of late, there has been a rash of seemingly anti-Semitic incidents — of bomb threats to Jewish community centers and schools, as well as vandalism of Jewish cemeteries in St. Louis and Philadelphia.

Notwithstanding President Trump’s condemnation of these acts, as well as the lack of any evidence of culpability on the part of Trump supporters, he is accused of being at least indirectly responsible for the surge in “anti-Jewish” sentiment because Trump’s alleged “polarizing rhetoric” allegedly “emboldens” anti-Semitic white-supremacist groups.

Early this month, police arrested Juan Thompson for making a series of bomb threats to Jewish organizations. Not only is Thompson not a Trump supporter, he had voted for Bernie Sanders! Nor is Thompson a white supremacist: he is black. (See “Fake Anti-Semitism: Black-racist Bernie-voter made bomb threats to Jewish groups to make ex-girlfriend look bad”)

Now police have arrested another perp who had made bomb threats against Jewish groups.

Surprise! It’s a Jew!

Yonah Jeremy Bob reports for The Jerusalem Post, March 23, 2017, that sources indicate that most of the threats against the Jewish Diaspora communities and organizations led investigators back to Israel.

Israel Police arrested an 18-year-old dual American Israeli living in Ashkelon, a coastal city in Israel, who is suspected of being behind most of a series of bomb and other threats to Jewish communities in the US, Europe, Australia and New Zealand that date back around six months.

The unnamed suspect used very complex methods to shield himself from identification and being caught, and law enforcement had to use a variety of their own complex methods to find him.  and finally searched the suspect’s house on Thursday. They are only now able to piece together the breadth and methodology of his operations.

There are few details available about the suspect’s profile: he is not in the IDF (Israeli Defense Force), not ultra-Orthodox, at some point made aliya (“return” to Israel) and possibly has psychological problems. His lawyer reportedly said the suspect has a nonmalignant brain tumor.

The suspect’s father has also been arrested for involvement in most of the same crimes and many of the threatening telephone calls. Their home was outfitted with an unusually large antenna and other unusual hardware. The suspect’s mother was questioned, but is not currently a suspect.

Israel intends to indict the suspect in its own courts, but it is unknown as of Thursday whether other countries such as the US might also seek to extradite and try him.

Liberal Insanity: Milk is now racist

Samantha Diaz is a staff writer of 49er, a newspaper of California State University, Long Beach, which it claims to have “won local, regional and national awards for reporting, photography, design and multimedia.”

In a March 13, 2017 op/ed for 49er, Diaz writes that the federal government’s dietary recommendation for drinking milk is racist because black people are lactose intolerant. She also claims that “neo-Nazi white supremacists” use milk as a racist tool against anti-Trumpers.

Here is Diaz’s op/ed, “Milk new symbol of hate?“:

When you think of milk, what first comes to your mind? If you’re a millennial, you probably think of strong bones, Got Milk? commercials, or maybe eating your favorite cereal while watching cartoons on a Saturday morning.

What about racism? White nationalism? If you’re having trouble finding the connection between these institutions and milk, you’re not alone. You, along with the rest of the nation, have been so accustomed to hearing the benefits of milk that you probably didn’t even realize the subtle racism hidden in our health facts.

It may not surprise you that the United States was founded on racism. That every institution we uphold has racist roots that are sometimes difficult to catch and even harder to fight against. This phenomenon affects our voter ID laws, state testing and,  yes, even our federal dietary guidelines. But how can our health guidelines, a system meant to be built upon scientific fact alone, have racist messages? Where there is a deep-rooted tradition to suppress an entire race’s existence, there’s a way.

The federal endorsement of milk in American diets contributes to the problem by uncritically pushing people to drink milk, despite the potential detriment it has on non-white people’s health.

Our current federal dietary guidelines urge people to drink three cups of milk a day, according to the 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans. The main health benefit of milk is to guard against osteoporosis, a disease that weakens your bones — hence the “stronger bones” rhetoric. While this is a very practical health benefit, osteoporosis affects Africans at a significantly lower rate than it does most Americans, according to an article on Mother Jones.

These facts about milk were brought to attention by a scientific magazine that got trickled down into the world of 4chan, where the facts were distorted and exaggerated to fit a racist rhetoric for white supremacy. The online trollers decided to take their milk jugs to the public using Shia LaBeouf’s social experiment livestream project, “He Will Not Divide Us,” which began as a protest against President Donald Trump. The installation has since been shut down by the host, The Museum of Moving Images, for being being “a serious and ongoing public safety hazard,” according to a February article by USA Today.

This is the basis that white supremacist milk chuggers used for their bring-your-own-milk-jug party using Shia LaBeouf’s camera to advance their hateful message. In an effort to prove their masculinity, a dozen middle-aged white men showed up shirtless, shouting about how they need to “secure the future of our diet and the future for milk drinking.” One man proudly displayed his neo-Nazi tattoo while spitting milk into the livestream camera.

This odd form of white supremacy also received cinematic attention through Jordan Peele’s horror movie “Get Out,” a movie that highlights racism in a post-racial America. Peele artistically addresses the new medium of hate with one of the film’s most eerie scenes, which shows a white woman meticulously sipping milk from a bendy straw. The scene would have gone unnoticed in the movie, but audiences were forced to notice the long, drawn-out frame of the woman taking a sip; Peele wanted people to notice.

These seemingly coincidental acts of racism are backed by the way milk continues to be represented in American diets.

The Mother Jones article states that not only is milk non-beneficial to Africans, but following the guidelines may actually be detrimental to their health. There is a strong correlation to calcium consumption and an increased risk of prostate cancer, unproportionally [sic] affecting African men. Furthermore, both black children and adults generally secrete less calcium on a daily basis than white people, making them less dependent upon milk.

Remember that this is the dietary guidelines for Americans. I want to emphasize that last word. These guidelines are for Americans. This means they should reflect the health needs of the ethnicities that make up America which, news flash, isn’t just white people. And since the African American community in the U.S. is continuously rising, it seems only logical to acknowledge that while something may be beneficial for one group of people, that may not be the case for another.

These differences are now leaving the world of health and spilling into our political and social lives. Milk has now become a symbol of racial superiority for white nationalists and neo-Nazis, claiming that their ability to process milk makes them racially superior. . . .

The milk scene in “Get Out,” along with LaBeouf’s livestream, turned what started out as internet trolling into yet another form of nonsensical white superiority. And while there is little logic to the train of thoughts involved in choosing the next inanimate face of racism, our country’s health guidelines certainly take part of the blame for this one.

Until we recognize the racist roots in our own systems of government and fight to remove them, we are all in part responsible for the white, creamy form of racism currently taking hold in our country.

Note that Diaz provides no source or evidence for her accusation that “white nationalists and neo-Nazis” claim racial superiority because their bodies can process lactose — the disaccharide sugar in milk that accounts for lactose intolerance in blacks.

Taxpayer-funded Florida university has a socialist ‘Fight Club’ to train students to beat up Trump supporters

A student club at the taxpayer-funded University of Central Florida (UCF), Orlando, with an enrollment of about 55,000, openly advocates and trains members in “leftist fight clubs” to undertake violence against political conservatives.

The student club is called Knights for Socialism (KFS).

Thanks to a public records request by the nonpartisan D.C.-based citizens’ watchdog group Judicial Watch under Florida’s Sunshine Law, UCF released to Judicial Watch the records the university has on Knights for Socialism, which consist of:

  • The Constitution of Knights for Socialism
  • New Student Organization Proposal Form, submitted on September 2, 2016.

The Constitution of the Knights for Socialism describes the student club as “a coalition of Marxist-Leninists, Anarchists and Democratic Socialists seeking to increase class consciousness” and its mission as:

to establish a new society based on socialism in which democracy is extended from politics to the economy and where production of goods and services is based on human need instead of private profit, a society in which all exploitation has been abolished and where human rights will come before property rights.”

Campus Reform uncovered additional disturbing information about this explicitly Marxist student club which is not included in the documents that KFS submitted to the university.

On February 5, 2017, KFS held a “Leftist Fight Club” workshop, from which Republicans were banned, to teach students how to “BASH THE FASH”.

Note: The dictionary defines “bash” as “to strike with a heavy crushing blow”; “to beat or assault severely”. “FASH is the Left’s abbreviation for Fascists — their term for anyone who supports President Trump who, to them, is a new Hitler.

Below is KFS’s announcement of the workshop, “Leftist Fight Club: The Rumbles at Lake Claire,” on its Facebook event page, which not only has since been deleted from Facebook but also scrubbed from the Internet archive:

In response to the record number of hate crimes against Latinxs, Immigrants, Muslims, Women, the LGBTQIA+ community, Jews, African Americans and other minorities since the rise of Donald Trump and other Alt-Right Neo-Nazis, Knights for Socialism has decided to host a series of self-defense clinics for anyone that wants to learn how to BASH THE FASH.

*For our first seminar, a local amateur boxer will teach us the basics of hand to hand combat. Following his instruction, we will all have the opportunity to face off against one another and practice what we learned.

*We have have gloves and pads, no bare knuckles yet 😉

*Even if you would only like to observe us we invite you to join us! Don’t wait until it’s too late to learn how to defend yourself!

*This event is open to everyone and anyone, EXCEPT REPUBLICANS.

*Ladies: The Commander-in-chief is a sexual predator and rapist. He has normalized sexual assault, and it is expected that sexual violence against women is going to skyrocket in the next 12 months. Please join us!

After the “leftist flight club” announcement was picked up by the Alternative Media, KFS denied ever saying that Republicans were barred from the fight club. Fortunately, KnightNews.com managed to take a screenshot of the announcement before KFC took it down:

In its fight club announcement, KFS claims that since “the rise of Donald Trump,” there is a “record number of hate crimes” against racial minorities, “immigrants” and women.

That is simply NOT true.

On the contrary, it is the Left who have committed acts of violence against peaceful Trump supporters. Just because the fake-news MSM don’t report it, doesn’t mean those crimes of violence didn’t happen. See, for example:

Predictably, KFS’s Facebook page shows it to be a rabid supporter for Planned Parenthood, illegal immigrants, the racist La Raza, and against President Trump’s construction of a US-Mexico border wall and a temporary visa ban.

The KFS student club’s chairman and contact person is a sophormore student named Dylan Tyer, whose phone number is (407) 247-2203.

In her letter to Judicial Watch of February 22, 2017, Tanya Perry of UCF’s Office of General Counsel said that KFS “has only recently submitted their materials to become a registered student organization” and that the university has not yet reviewed or approved what the club submitted.

If the university approves and KFS becomes an official, registered student organization, in the words of KFS, the club “will gain access to all of the perks that come with such status”. Please contact U. of Central Florida’s president, John C. Hitt, to state your objection:
