The enslavement of the Jews in Egypt was a slow slide to tyranny, prompted by a woke mob. The ideas promoted by the mob today are no more rational than they were then, and the hateful themes are evident. Appearing more woke will prove no escape in the end — but God always wins in the end.
Officer Delvin White of the Tampa, FL police force was fired — for speaking to another black man, and about other black men, in a way that is common in the black community. Woke leftists should be outraged — but they’re not. This is because they have replaced the fight against racism with the imposition of ridiculous speech codes. And because he violated the speech code (in a way millions of young black men do every day), he’s out of a job. You can see the video of him arresting a trespasser, but there’s a language warning and not just for the N-word.
I don’t think it is any more fair that Meyers Leonard of the Miami Heat has been suspended for a week, and fined $50,000, for using the word “k*ke,” a slur which I, as a Jewish rabbi, am presumably allowed to use — but I won’t spell out lest some podcast platform decide to cancel me!
Chris Cuomo says he can’t cover his brother Andrew’s scandals, and immediately people pile on, as if it were inappropriate for him to have entertained people with interviews with his brother before. While I am no fan of either Chris or Andrew’s views, the propaganda sold as news on CNN, or the Governor of NY’s murderous policies or personal problems, I’m not buying it. Chris didn’t do anything wrong.
And neither did CPAC, no matter how many people frantically pointed to their stage design and called it a Nazi symbol. For them to be morally consistent, these same people have to condemn all Democratic donors. Listen to find out why.
Thanks to Jerry Nadler, I had to go back for a second go at the Equality Act. His comment indicated that he hasn’t read the Constitution, and even more, that he is entirely uninterested in the moral principles that built America as a bastion of freedom in the first place.
The “Equality Act” is anything but equal. It declares the Jewish Bible to be a bigoted document, and you to be a bigot if you follow it.
For example, it refers to “the sex stereotype that marriage should only be between heterosexual couples.” So Genesis 2:24 is bigoted, not to mention all the Jewish laws of marriage. It’s a straightforward attack on traditional religious beliefs, with a whole series of negative ramifications for religious groups and biological women.
The fact that it is likely to pass means that once again, the Democrats have made themselves the party of hate.
As I thought it through this week, I realized that the Democrats are either terrified of the American voter — they don’t want them to have the option of choosing Trump, no matter how bad that would be for Republicans — or, alternatively, they know this is going to flop and they are hoping to use in in the future against Republicans.
I guess there’s a third option — they are so blinded by Trump Derangement Syndrome that they simply aren’t thinking rationally, which is as good an explanation as the first two.
And speaking of thinking irrationally, AOC had a panic attack in her office during the riots, which is nothing to particularly be embarrassed about. But then she tried to blame her panic attack on Trump, the rioters, and anyone who wants to tell the truth about where she was during the riots and how the media has lied about it.
I was the guest of Dr. Mike Chupp, CEO of the Christian Medical and Dental Associations, along with Dr. Jeffrey Barrows, their Senior Vice President of Bioethics and Public Policy, on CMDA Matters, their weekly podcast. With their permission I am passing it along to you as well. You will hear how heartening it was to them to hear a Jewish voice speak in favor of Biblical values, freedom of conscience, and even the divisions within the Jewish community.
When what was fine to say against Trump is encouraging violence against Cuomo, you know that neutral standards have been abandoned.
In fact there are a series of things said by Democrats that were totally acceptable, far worse than what Trump said that supposedly incited an insurrection.
And the left has now explicitly censored opinions they don’t like, simply for expressing views against their prevailing Orthodoxy.
None of us are safe in a society where thoughtcrime, rather than freedom of speech, is the order of the day.
