The Best Thing Most Americans Can Do to Make America Better


"Throughout American history until the post-World War II era, had you asked almost any American what constitutes living a good life, he or she would have offered any or all of these five responses:

No. 1: Developing one’s moral character.

No. 2: Getting married and making a good family.

No. 3. Taking care of one’s family, especially one’s parents.

No. 4. Going to church (or synagogue).

No. 5. Taking care of the poor in one’s community, usually by joining a service organization such as a church charity, a Kiwanis, Lions or Rotary Club.

My suspicion is that if one were to ask young people today, and certainly anyone on the left, you would not receive any of those five responses."

The politicizing of COVID has become a deadly game


The extreme politicizing of COVID makes it difficult (if not almost impossible) to know who to trust when it comes to preventing the spread of the disease. This is a terrible shame.

When it comes to being vaccinated, if I was sure the vaccine had no long-term side effects or dangers, I would get vaccinated every month if I knew I was helping to protect my family, my co-workers, and even strangers whom I met. (And yes, I’d gladly to do it every month if I knew it would protect me as well.)

The problem is that I’m not sure about any of this, and not simply because of the many conflicting reports.

Responding To Friends Who Do or Do Not Get Vaccinated


Word for my friends and family who have recently gotten their CV shot or who know they will get one soon, awesome for you. I can see how relieved you are and I’m so glad that this option is available for you!

For my friends who aren’t sure they will get one just yet, or maybe ever, or already know that they never will, I want to throw some love and respect your way, too. I am happy that you have that choice. Medical freedom is important.

The wonderful thing about informed consent is that two people with the same information, can make two completely different choices and neither of them is right or wrong. That is what medical freedom is and should be.

There are benefits and risks to every medical procedure. Doing the “right thing” means you’ve weighed the risks and benefits for yourself, and are making an informed decision! The only wrong decision IMO is made purely out of fear, social pressure or emotional reactivity. If you have researched your decision and are comfortable with it....great!

What’s right for one person, may be wrong for the other. Both, on an intuitive and biological level. We’re all doing the best we can with the information we hopefully have spent time digging into.

Let this be a gentle reminder *for all* to please respect each other and be mindful of the message we put out there.

Is everyone “wrong” because they believe differently than you? They very likely have just as strong of a reason for their choice as you do.

Reminder this information is also part of ones personal health information act and you have the right to not answer when asked whether you choose to get the shot or not.

So whether you

CV shot

No shot

You’re okay in my books and I respect YOUR DECISION

#medicalfreedom #slipperyslope

You’re NOT ok in my book when you start being rude to others because they made a decision that was BEST for them.

The "Scare-Monger in Chief": Biden's Vaccine Push


Joe Biden isn't a doctor, and he's certainly not your doctor. But that hasn't stopped the president of the United States from making every Americans' health decisions for them. The "scare-monger in chief," as former Civil Rights Division leader Roger Severino calls him, has decided that when it comes to COVID, the facts, the law, and the science don't matter. You will be vaccinated, this Democratic leadership says -- and surrender every constitutional right to privacy, employment, personal safety, and free speech until you do.

When the president announced his outrageous new COVID policy, that every federal employee cough up the information on whether or not they'd been vaccinated, even the liberal media was stunned. This raises "a lot of uncomfortable questions," the AP pointed out -- not the least of which is the profound abuse of Americans' civil rights. Who's going to pay for the testing? How will religious exemptions be accommodated? If federal employees are still working remotely, will they be required to test? What about HIPPA laws? Under this shocking new intrusion into people's lives, Biden has decided to make it so burdensome for people to be unvaccinated that Severino thinks there's a massive case to be made in federal court.

10 Scriptures to Help You Pray Through Grief

"God is close to those who grieve. 

We may grieve for a friend or family member who has died or a loved one who has strayed. We may mourn the loss of a pet or a job or a prized possession. We may experience grief when our health wanes or a relationship sours. Whatever the source of our pain, the Bible assures us that the Lord 'heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds' (Psalm 147:3 NIV). 

When we experience loss, it only hurts more to ignore it or deny it; healing comes when we acknowledge and express what we’re feeling. While it’s therapeutic to talk to friends and counselors, there’s no one better to hear our sorrows than our gracious, compassionate and loving Lord."

Despite ‘Delta’ Alarmism, US COVID Deaths Are at Lowest Level

If you judged the US’s current COVID-19 situation only by the headlines, you’d come away thinking that we’re spiraling back into pandemic disaster. Localities like Los Angeles
 and St. Louis have reimposed mask mandates on their citizens, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention just revised its “guidance” to say that, actually, fully vaccinated individuals should still wear masks in certain situations. Meanwhile, mainstream media coverage of the rise of the “Delta variant” is soaked in alarmism

Yet at the same time that all this alarm is mounting, the actual number of COVID-19 deaths is at a nadir. Harvard Medical School Professor Martin Kulldorff pointed this out on Twitter, writing that “In [the] USA, COVID mortality is now the lowest since the start of the pandemic in March 2020.” 

He shared this graph from OurWorldInData which clearly shows how COVID deaths per million are at, relatively speaking, extreme lows. Far more people were dying from COVID-19 months ago as we were winding down restrictions than are dying today as some call to reinstate them.

Worth the 12 Minutes!: Be Careful, America



Watch the videos from the first 12 minutes. Well worth your time.

Change Your Food to Change Your Mood


Bad moods sap our energy, and if we aren’t careful, they can hurt our ability to focus, make
decisions, and manage our relationships. TalentSmartEQ’s data on nearly two-million people shows that highly emotionally intelligent people excel at managing their bad moods to minimize harm and stay effective, but managing a bad mood saps energy from everyone while good moods energize.

For this very reason, we look for practicable strategies to help people feel more positive emotions and less negative ones. According to recent research this simply strategy can go a long way to improve your mood: Add a few cups of fruits and vegetables to your existing diet.

The exact reason fruits and vegetables benefit our mood is still up for debate. From explanations like “connectedness to Earth” and “fruits and vegetables should make us feel good” to more scientific explanations like “fruits and vegetables are packed with nutrients (i.e., Vitamin C and carotenoids) that help dopamine reactions, a happiness-inducing neurotransmitter.”

Dr. Tony Evans: issues call for Kingdom Race Theology

“God is not colorblind, but neither is He blinded by color,” he said. “We are of every tribe and nation, and God sees us. But the only subject of the Bible is the glory of God and the advancement of His Kingdom. We are never to allow the politics of men to break up our
togetherness, so stand together as the Lord sends you.”

At the close of his July 21 address, Evans was asked by an attendee if, considering all of America’s historic faults when it came to race, was it even possible to be patriotic?

Frederick Douglass, Evans responded, called the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution “freedom documents” that America has yet to live up to. “The documents are perfect,” he said. “The application is flawed.

“The magic of America,” Evans continued, “is in the Declaration of Independence because it recognizes that there have been immutable rights granted by God that the government has been established to protect.”

Judeo-Christian values vs. Marxism

US Senator Marsha Blackburn said that this isn’t just a culture war—it’s a war between Judeo-Christian values and Marxism, which the Democratic party is pushing. She is absolutely right. I applaud her for calling it what it is and for working to preserve, as she put it, “our American values of faith, family, freedom.” May God bless her! It is so important that we pray for our leaders.  - Rev. Franklin Graham

The country is experiencing a "rising radical left influencing various American institutions from entertainment to sports, corporations to media and on to government," says Matthew Boyle in his article, Marsha Blackburn in Long-form Video Interview Urges Republicans to ‘Fightthe Culture War.’

Two-Thirds of Voters Want Congress to Investigate 2020 Riots


Now that House Democrats have created a committee to investigate the January 6 Capitol riot, most voters believe Congress should also investigate the Black Lives Matter protests that sparked violence in major cities last year.

A new national telephone and online survey by the National Police Association and Rasmussen Reports finds that 66% of Likely U.S. Voters think Congress should investigate last year’s violent protests, in which more than 2,000 police officers suffered injuries in the line of duty. Twenty-one percent (21%) don’t think Congress should investigate last year’s protests, and 13% were not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

The survey found strong voter support for law enforcement on issues ranging from display of the “Thin Blue Line” flag to prosecution of so-called “quality of life” crimes.

From Boy to Man—the Marks of Manhood

"When does a boy become a man? That interesting question was recently posed
to me, and it raises some of the most important issues facing Christians today. While the world seems increasingly confused about matters as basic as what it means to be male and female, Christians are called to frame our arguments in distinctively biblical terms.

All around us, cultural developments and media messages communicate a fog of confusion over questions of gender. In reality, these issues lie right along the fault lines of today's culture war and its most controversial points of debate. For many years, this society has been experimenting with the most fundamental realities of human existence. The essence of what it means to be male or female has been routinely discounted by a society infatuated with unlimited self-expression and assertions of personal autonomy.

Women are now joined by men, who complain that traditional expectations about gender roles are oppressive, limiting, and intolerant. An entire generation of young women is trying to find a way to genuine womanhood against the tidal force of ideological feminism. Similarly, boys and young men are desperately looking for models of manhood and answers to their urgent questions of male identity, male responsibility, and male roles."

Baseball and Christianity

My friend and colleague, Lee Weeks, an avid sports fan, shares similarities between baseball and Christianity in his recent article, "To Be or Not to Be."

"True timing is the difference maker in the game of baseball. The timing of a pitcher’s release, a batter’s swing, an outfielder’s leap, or a base runner’s sprint can be the difference in winning or losing. Knowing when to go for it and make a move, or hold back and wait for another pitch makes baseball the proverbial cat-and-mouse challenge of the mind and body.

Similarly, knowing when to take a pitch or swing for the fences in the game of life is a hit or miss proposition. What might seem like the right decision in the moment can lack the wisdom of an eternal perspective. That’s why knowing whether or not to answer the door when opportunity knocks always requires supernatural wisdom.

God’s Word reminds us in Isaiah 55:9: 'For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts.'

Ponder this: if a Christian can trust Christ with his or her eternity, how much more should they trust in His plans for their lives this his side of Heaven? What might that entail? Will you exchange your goals, desires, ambitions, plans, longings, career, all of who you are—past, present and future, good, bad and in between—for God’s glory and a life rich with meaning, purpose and fulfillment?"

The Truth Will Set You Free: Incredible Message by MacArthur


"What elements of society and politics produce this willing kind of state slavery? Drawing from both Orwell and Huxley, this is what they say totalitarianism would look like. Here are the necessary elements. One: a crisis. A crisis puts freedom in danger because a crisis elevates government control. And the more severe the crisis, and the more control the government gets, the more freedoms begin to disappear.

Secondly, the collective is more important than the individual. The greater good is the good of society, not your good. “We don’t care what you want or what you think, we’ve got to stop global warming. We don’t care what your freedoms are, the things that you desire and you want, you can’t say that; you can’t believe that; you can’t do that.” Because the collective is far more important than the individual. “The advance of the LGBTQ is far more important on the social side for the good of society than anything you think about that.” So the collective dominates the individual. Everybody is forced into the collective.

Thirdly, you need a mass psychosis. You need a mass psychosis, something that makes everybody afraid—like a plague, like a pandemic, like masks—that create a greater threat than the giving up of freedom. People rushed into giving up their freedoms when there was a threat that created a mass psychosis. Keep up the deception so they continue to believe the lies, and you escalate control.

Number four: Control information. Control what people hear, what they therefore believe. And the way to control information is the following: Create confusion, send out all kinds of diverse signals so that nothing is really clear. So you’re creating a kind of acceptable irrationality, a kind of madness. Censor what you don’t want; control people by technology and media."

America: A Christian Nation


Contrary to the false claims of today’s secularists, America is a Christian nation, as the Supreme Court declared in 1892. Indeed, 52 out of the 55 signers of the
Constitution were evangelical believers. For example, Benjamin Rush not only said, "I rely upon the merits of Jesus Christ for a pardon of all my sins," but also stated that the Constitution "is as much the work of a Divine Providence as any of the miracles recorded in the Old and New Testament." James Dobson and Robert Jeffress discuss the historical record which shows America was considered a Christian nation until recent history.

Pelosi: On the Riot Side of History


Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council knock it out of the park again in his commentary from Friday, July 23, entitled, Pelosi: On the Riot Side of History . .

"When House Democrats started clamoring for their own January 6 commission, it was never about the facts. But the last person anyone expected to admit that is Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.). But this week, the California leader showed her cards when she booted two of the five Republicans off the roster because she was terrified they'd ask some hard questions. And hard questions, we all know, is not what this probe is about. Political theater is.

When House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) submitted his five names for the supposedly bipartisan investigation, Pelosi knew that Reps. Jim Banks (R-Ind.) and Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) wouldn't let her party get away with the pack of lies they've been trying to sell about that day for seven months -- namely that Republicans and their supporters were responsible for the tragedy at the Capitol. So, she made up some lame excuse that Democrats needed to protect the 'integrity of the investigation' and rejected the two conservatives. Seething, McCarthy fired back that if that's the way Pelosi wants to play it, then she can go ahead with their 'bipartisan' committee without them. 'Unless Speaker Pelosi reverses course and seats all five Republican nominees, Republicans will not be party to their sham process and will instead pursue our own investigation of the facts.'

'[She] just proved what we said all along,' Banks said on "Washington Watch." 'We said at the beginning that this was a political sham, a stunt by the Democrats to distract from everything going on in the country today. Democrats don't want to talk about rising crime waves around the country, inflation rampant and growing. They don't want to talk about the border crisis. They don't want to talk about the anti-Americanism and critical race theory that's being taught in our institutions [and] in our schools... They want to talk about Donald Trump. They want to talk about January 6. They want to drag Republicans through the mud and they want to drag 75 million people in America who voted for Donald Trump through the mud. That's what they want to focus on. They don't want to focus on anything else.'

Raising Children of Honesty and Integrity


Our five-year-old son developed a habit of lying, and I was determined to stop it!  After numerous attempts at spanking as punishment, I wanted a creative approach to discipline.  Surely there was something I could do to nip this in the bud.

Finally, I devised my plan.  One year earlier, Hendrix became interested in the Star Wars movies.  One of his treasured possessions was my old collection of Star Wars action figures.  He thought they were gold. 

I decided that when he lied, he needed to feel pain in an area that mattered to him.  So, the new rule would be that he loses one action figure for every lie told.  One evening when he and I were home alone I initiated what I thought was the perfect tactic of creative discipline.  Hendrix told a lie, and I instructed him to bring me one Star Wars man and meet me in the kitchen.  He listened to my speech about the destructive nature of lies.  Then, I proceeded to heat up the frying pan.  I told my son that what I was about to do to his action figure would illustrate what lies do when they are told.  Hendrix and I watched as Han Solo slowly melted away until all that was left was a puddle of oozing plastic goo.

In my mind I thought, “What a great plan.  The little guy will remember this forever.  This may just break the pattern of lies tonight.  James Dobson and Kevin Leman will probably feature this idea in one of their books.”  I looked up at Hendrix, expecting him to break into uncontrollable sobs, wailing, “Daddy, I will never lie again!  I have learned my lesson!” 

Instead, Hendrix, who had not taken his eyes off of the frying pan, flashed his bright eyes at mine and excitedly asked, “Can we do another one, Daddy?”  So much for creative discipline. 

Children catch many of life’s values as we model them in life – not as we plan the perfect lesson with a frying pan.  Several years after the Han Solo incident our family experienced an object lesson in integrity and truth-telling that Hendrix still remembers.    Vacationing in Pigeon Forge, we ate supper at one of the infamous pancake houses.  The restaurant had a large, separate foyer and gift shop where people paid for their meal.  After eating, we left the dining room and waited for several minutes in the unattended foyer.  My children began looking at some pocket knives for sale.  Finally, a manager entered.  He apologized for the delay and said, “Thank you for your honesty.  You have no idea how many people in your situation just leave the store and do not pay.”  Then, seeing Hendrix looking at the pocket knife, he said, “Please, you all may have the pocket knife at no charge.  That is my way of saying thank you for being honest.” 

Today, my family still has that knife with “Pigeon Forge” carved on its side.  And occasionally, one of the children will say, “That is the knife the man gave us because we were honest.”  That small knife reminds us of the importance of integrity. 

Here are some practical ways we can work at instilling integrity in our children.

Explain what integrity means

Teach children that integrity means to be the same on the inside as you claim to be on the outside.  The word is associated with the testing of metals.  Some rings are gold-plated.  Others are solid gold all the way through.  God wants us to be the real deal.

Read and memorize key verses

During mealtimes or family devotions, review Bible texts about the importance of truth-telling.  Some examples are Proverbs 12:19, Ephesians 4:15 & 25, John 8:44, John 14:6.

Read stories about people of integrity

As a family, read age-appropriate books or listen to radio theater stories of people with integrity (
Gladys AylwardCorrie ten Boom, and George Muller for example).  Then discuss lessons from their lives.  Also recommended are William Bennett’s The Children’s Book of Virtues and The Children’s Book of Heroes.  Three excellent sources for high quality radio theater are Lamplighter TheaterAdventures in Odyssey, and Focus on the Family's Radio Theater.   Our family has enjoyed dozens of hours the past several years with fabulous radio theater dramas!

Jesus is in the room

We try to teach our children that we always live in God’s presence.  At times we will say, “I need you to answer me with Jesus standing in the room with us.”

Sour tongue

When children do lie, take a small dab of vinegar and put it on their tongue.  We call this “sour tongue.”  The awful taste reminds them of how lies taste to God.

Model honesty and integrity

No better training exists than Dad and Mom living lives worth replicating before their children.  Those little ones see us day in and day out.  Remember, they catch what we do and say – and what we don’t.

May our children find us to be people of integrity – the real deal on the inside.

Blackpool Settlement, Apology Sends Strong Statement for Religious Freedom in UK


This is the type of ruling and settlement that could have ripple effects impacting religious freedom protection beyond the U.K. and even the EU. This remedies settlement can’t be appealed, and the order approving it is public, meaning both the ruling and the remedies can serve as precedent for other cases.

“This is an important moment for religious freedom in the U.K.,” Franklin Graham said. “We’re grateful to God for the final outcome of this case, and for what it will mean for churches and Christians across the U.K. in the years ahead.”

The settlement underscores the judge’s ruling from the spring that Christians who hold Biblical views on human sexuality, including Franklin Graham and the organizers of the Festival, are not extremists and must be treated fairly.

“This is the antithesis of the manner in which a public authority should behave in a democratic society,” the judge said in April.

Franklin Graham: American Freedom Is Being ‘Defeated From Within’


"As we come to Independence Day and commemorate our freedoms, we shouldn’t celebrate too quickly. We need to look seriously at what is happening around us. We are losing our freedom and we are being defeated from within—and no one had to fire a shot.

It takes a North Korean defector to point out a common thread in North Korea’s education system and ours—communism.

As many news outlets reported, Yeonmi Park fled to America with her mother to escape oppression and later enrolled in an Ivy League school. She was excited to attend this prestigious university that was supposed to help her think independently and expand her horizons. However, she has been shocked at what she found.

The educational institution indoctrinated students with anti-American propaganda. She found deeply troubling similarities with the country she had fled from in search of freedom. Those similarities include anti-Western sentiment, collective guilt, and suffocating political correctness, including mocking her for enjoying English literature classics such as Jane Austen."

Court Says Law Mandating Trans Pronoun Use A Violation Of Free Speech


A California appellate court ruled Friday that a provision in a state law passed four years ago mandating that certain health care workers use transgender pronouns is a violation of free speech, protected by the First Amendment.

CA’s Third District Court of Appeal upended SB 219, which in part forced nu
rsing home workers to use preferred transgender pronouns and names for patients.

Notably, violators of the law “could be charged with a misdemeanor and subject to punishment of a $1000 fine, or even up to one year in jail,” according to California Family Council.

The Mystery of God's Will - Swindoll

RHETT-orical e-newsletter for week of 07/19/2021


Here's my e-
newsletter for this week: Celebrate America and Common Sense!

Remember Correctly - Celebrate America


Oh, wonderful July! Fireworks, barbecues, and community parties welcome this hot summer month. How wonderful to be an American and live in the land of the free.

My wife and I try to instill in our children a taste of the incredible heritage we have as citizens of the United States of America. That heritage is one to be embraced and valued. A careful look at our Founding Fathers and their documents reveal an overwhelming bias toward biblical Christianity.

Fifty-five delegates attended the Constitutional Convention of 1787, which produced the Constitution of the United States. The religious sympathies of this core group of men shaped the foundations of our republic: 28 Episcopalians, eight Presbyterians, seven Congregationalists, two Lutherans, two Dutch Reformed, two Methodists, two Roman Catholics, one unknown, and only three deists. So, 93 percent of the attendees were self-proclaimed Christians.

The American Patriot’s Bible shares, “While much has been written in recent years to try to dismiss the fact that America was founded upon the biblical principles of Judeo-Christianity, all the revisionism in the world cannot change the facts. Anyone who examines the original writings, personal correspondence, biographies, and public statements of the individuals who were instrumental in the founding of America will find an abundance of quotations showing the profound extent to which their thinking and lives were influenced by a Christian worldview.”


America’s Founders shared a high view of the Lord.

U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Marshall wrote, “With us, Christianity and religion are identified. It would be strange, indeed, if with such a people our institutions did not presuppose Christianity and did not often refer to it and
exhibit relations with it.” 

And U.S. Supreme Court Justice Joseph Story wrote, “One of the beautiful boasts of our municipal jurisprudence is that Christianity is a part of the Common Law. There never has been a period in which the Common Law did not recognize Christianity as lying at its foundations.”


The New England Primer, America’s first textbook, taught the ABCs to children by memorizing basic biblical truths and lessons about life: A. In Adam’s fall, we sinned all. B. Heaven to find, the Bible mind. C. Christ crucified for sinners died. The Founding Fathers stressed the relationship between a sound education based upon biblical absolutes and the future of the nation.

Noah Webster wrote, “The moral principles and precepts found in the Scriptures ought to form the basis of all our civil constitutions and laws.” In 1791, Benjamin Rush, signer of the Declaration and Constitution, Surgeon General of the Continental Army, and leading educator, argued why the Bible should never be removed from public education: “In contemplating the political institutions of the United States, I lament that we waste so much time and money in punishing crimes and take so little pains to prevent them.” In his Essays, Literary, Moral & Philosophical, he wrote, “The Bible, when not read in schools, is seldom read in any subsequent period of life… [T]he Bible… should be read in our schools in preference to all other books because it contains the greatest portion of that kind of knowledge which is calculated to produce private and public happiness.”


Until the Warren Court of the 1950’s-1960’s, which worked to secularize America, even the Supreme Court understood that the historical record – as opposed to the modern progressive bias - overwhelmingly affirms that the United States “is a Christian nation” (1892 SCOTUS  - Justice David Brewer in Holy Trinity vs. United States). He wrote, “Because of a general recognition of this truth, the question has seldom been presented to the courts….”

The Founding Fathers’ documents shaped the genesis of this nation, springing from a common understanding, or what we today call “worldview,” of how the Creator designed life to work. This approach to life is known as the Seven Principles of the Judeo- Christian Ethic, rooted in values from the Old and New Testaments.

1. The dignity of human life. God made every person in His image, and thus every human has certain “unalienable rights.”

2. The traditional monogamous marriage. The biblical family unit is the basic building block of our society.

3. A national work ethic. Working hard represents dignity, and our free enterprise system encourages it.

4. The right to a God-centered education. Our forefathers intended an education system that taught the Bible, Creationism, and moral obligation.

5. The Abrahamic Covenant. Covenantal theology understands that obedience to God yields blessing for a nation or individual.

6. Common decency. America is great when her people follow the Golden Rule, treating others as they want to be treated.

7. Divinely ordained establishments. God established the home, civil government, and the church.

The founders of America understood the constitutions, laws, and agreements of federal and state governments depended on the acceptance of these basic ethics.

The Left doggedly tries to rewrite our history, demonize patriotism, and teach people to remember wrongly.

As Christian parents, may we instead instill in our children a love and respect for our nation. And may we proudly proclaim, “In God we trust!”

A Monumentally Poor Decision

"Before long there will be no monuments, memorials, or United States history left in America, as textbooks will have to be canceled as well ...

Commenting on France’s President Emmanuel Macron’s opposition to those seeking to cleanse France of its history, Mark Steyn said: 'President Macron of France is not my favorite chap - he’s a sinister globalist for one thing. But he made an admirable stand when he announced that not one French statue would be taken down and not a single French street name would be changed, because they are all part of French history. And ‘Bingo!’ ... the statue toppling and street-name changing in France went away.'

If only America had valiant and judicious political leaders.…"

You Don’t Have a Right To Expose Yourself To Women.

WHAT SICK, TWISTED THINKING. THE LEFT PERVERTS (to corrupt morally; to interpret incorrectly) TRUTH.

"A man who identifies as a man and exposes himself to a woman, let alone to a group of women
and girls, is deemed sick and arrested. But, according to the left, a man who says he is a woman and does the exact same thing — with the exact same disturbing effect on women, let alone girls — is to be given universal support. In fact, however, this individual is the apotheosis of narcissism. And is still a man: As one woman pointed out to me, his engaging in such behavior is demonstrative proof that he is still a man (one with an exhibitionist streak). Women don’t expose themselves like that.

Members of antifa, the closest thing America has to the Hitlerjugend (Hitler Youth), attacked the woman who led the demonstration against the Wi Spa.

Such is the state of America and the West in the year 2021.

When the right of a man — regardless of whether he identifies as a woman — to expose his penis to girls supersedes society’s obligation to protect girls’ innocence and most women’s sense of decency, we have reached a new low."
