✪ Stone Mountain Confederate Memorial, a nine-story-high bas-relief sculpture carved into a sprawling rock face northeast of Atlanta, is the South’s largest Confederate monument still intact. Despite long-standing demands for the removal of what some may consider a shrine to racism, the giant depiction of three Confederate heroes on horseback still towers ominously over the Georgia countryside, protected by state law.
NFL To Play ‘Black National Anthem’ At Beginning Of All Week One Season Games
✪ The NFL will reportedly play “Lift Ev’ry Voice And Sing,” which is also known as the black national anthem, before every Week 1 NFL game in the 2020 season, according to ESPN. The decision to play the song comes following the death of Minneapolis man George Floyd, which led to nationwide protests over racial inequality and police brutality.
✪ Last night, I guess in an effort to show solidarity with a handful of radical activists from the American Indian community, the official Twitter feed of the Democrat Party – @TheDemocrats – did this:
OP-ED General Michael Flynn: If We Don’t Act Soon, 2% Of The People Are About To Control The Other 98%
✪ I was once told if we’re not careful, 2 percent of the passionate will control 98 percent of the indifferent 100 percent of the time. The more I’ve thought about this phrase, the more I believe it. There is now a small group of passionate people working hard to destroy our American way of life. Treason and treachery are rampant and our rule of law and those law enforcement professionals who uphold our laws are under the gun more than at any time in our nation’s history. These passionate 2 percent appear to be winning...

Shaun King Calls For A Modern Kristallnacht Against Christians
✪ “All murals and stained glass windows of white Jesus, and his European mother, and their white friends should also come down. They are a gross form of white supremacy. Created as tools of oppression. Racist propaganda. They should all come down.” That was a June 22 tweet from Shaun King, and the “far-left activist,” wasn’t done...
✪ The World needs an overarching level of multilateral governance that can sideline problematic “national interests” U.N. Secretary General Antonio Guterres said Thursday, as he lamented existing U.N. instruments such as the Security Council have teeth but “show little or no appetite to bite.”
Who are these cultural revolutionaries? The conventional wisdom goes that this is the inner-cities erupting, economically disadvantaged victims of racism enraged over the murder of George Floyd. The reality is something more…bourgeoisie. As Kevin Williamson observed last week, “These are the idiot children of the American ruling class, toy radicals and Champagne Bolsheviks playing Jacobin for a while until they go back to graduate school.”
We’re devastated, grieving, and outraged by violence against Black lives,” states Planned Parenthood Federation of America in one of a series of tweets. “White supremacy and systemic racism permeate every institution — including the foundation of this country. As our nation confronts the COVID-19 pandemic, which is disproportionately ravaging Black communities, we must also address the public health crisis that racism presents.”
Cary, N.C., June 7th. Amidst nationwide Black Lives Matter protests, a black man and woman are seated on a park bench while a white woman wearing a sweatshirt that reads “LOVE” takes to her megaphone. “We repent on behalf of, uh, Caucasian people,” she says. A small crowd of white people comes to kneel before the two seated black folks, who are co-pastors of a local church. Some of the kneelers wash the feet of the black people. A white man with an English accent solemnly intones, “It’s our honor to stand here on behalf of all white people, . . . repenting, Lord, for our aggression, Lord, repenting for our pride, for thinking that we are better, that we are above…”
