The anti-Trump group the Lincoln Project, which defames Abe Lincoln with each mention of its name, also defamed the heroes of D-Day by comparing them to the equally misnamed Antifa (that stands for “anti-fascist,” even though they actually use fascist methods to attack anyone who disagrees with their radical ideology and falsely brand them “fascists.”)

To his everlasting shame, Brian Williams on MSNBC actually devoted some of his airtime to promoting this slanderous propaganda.

It was so jaw-droppingly outrageous that the website NotTheBee.com, which chronicles stories that sound like the Babylon Bee but are actually true, wrote it up:

https://notthebee.com/article/according-to-the-lincoln-project-antifa-members-are-just-like-the-soldiers-who-fought-the-nazis-on-d-day

I recommend as a must-read, to keep this ridiculous claim from ever taking root in your brain, this write-up from Instapundit, which includes the real history of the Antifa movement that started in Germany in the early 1930s.

Even then, they were a misleadingly named group of communist radicals whose primary goal was to destroy capitalism and who defined all other pro-capitalist parties in Germany as “fascists” so they could claim to be fighting fascism. In that regard, at least, the current Antifa does resemble some people who were around decades ago, but certainly not the heroes of D-Day.

Casting further doubt on the natural, animal origin theory of COVID-19, a new Oxford University study found that there were no bats or pangolins sold at Wuhan wet markets between May 2017 and the first COVID cases in 2019. (FYI: the university already had this data from a study of a different disease, which I assume is why the Chinese government couldn’t prevent them from gathering it.) The authors say bats are rarely consumed in central China (most of the photos of them in markets are actually from Indonesia), and there is a pangolin trade, but not in Wuhan.

Interestingly, the study did find 38 species of animals were sold in Wuhan, either as pets or for human consumption, including badgers, raccoon dogs, hedgehogs, peacocks and reptiles, but no bats or pangolins. I’m hoping most of those were pets.

So bats and pangolins appear to be off the suspect list for starting the pandemic, which throws even more suspicion onto the rats in Beijing.

There’s an article by Michael Dahlen at THE OBJECTIVE STANDARD that tells you everything you need to know about the “woke social justice” movement and anti-racism. It’s long, so find some time, but it’s a must-read.

Read this, and you’ll understand why "wokeness" as expressed in Critical Race Theory is such a threat, and why it has so quickly taken over academia and corporate life. There is absolutely no way to oppose it --- or even to insufficiently support it --- without being accused of racism and punished accordingly. This is a philosophy that’s designed to be impervious to rational argument, because, hey, it associates rationality with white supremacy. If you try to come at it with facts or reason –- which is very easy to do –- that only proves what a white supremacist you are. It’s like the mass hysteria associated with the Salem witch trials: “You are a witch! Better for you just to come out and say so. If you say you’re NOT a witch, that proves to us all the more that you ARE a witch.”

“Oh, and we don’t need evidence," they continue. "We can take your most innocuous statement, maybe from many years ago, and choose to be offended by it, or pretend we know your mind even better than you do and can tell what you really meant by it.”

This philosophy is a house of cards that can’t stand up to debate for five minutes. That’s why they built a protection into it: it doesn’t allow debate.

What “anti-racism” (actually, racism) does is flip the old white-over-black power structure of generations past into reverse. Instead of trying to extinguish oppression, as we’ve been working for many years to do, it asserts that oppression is always with us and always will be, no matter what, in EVERYTHING. And now, they say, it’s time for those “of color” (non-white) to be paid back by white people. White people were on the top; now they’re going to be on the bottom, and we will “guilt” them into going along with this. They believe we are in the time of “racial reckoning.”

What I don’t see “anti-racists” acknowledging is that this philosophy has turned them into the very thing they used to hate when it was white people doing it. THEY are the racists now, only they’ve re-defined “racism” so that in their own minds, they’re not. Language, you see, is a societal construct. And they get to control the language now.

They get to write the dictionary. That’s why we have to call these activists what they want and use their choice of 57 different pronouns to refer to them, but they also get to call us things like “cis-gendered,” even if that’s the last thing we want to be called. This is the new Newspeak. And there's new terminology we're all expected to learn.

Speaking of George Orwell, here’s a three-paragraph excerpt from the article that telegraphically shows how twisted and Orwellian the new “woke” social justice is...

……………….

“In George Orwell’s dystopian novel 1984, the ruling socialist party had three slogans: War is peace, freedom is slavery, ignorance is strength. To say that social justice ideology is Orwellian is an understatement: Reality is a social-linguistic construct—truth is culturally subjective—objectivity is a Western bias—knowledge is a power game—upholding American values is a microaggression—speech is violence—initiating violence is self-defense—earned success is privilege—equal treatment is privilege promoting—argumentation is privilege preserving—disagreement is fragility—merit is unfair—the rule of law is unjust—protecting individual rights is subjugation—individualism is racism—race neutrality is racist—racial discrimination against whites is ‘anti-racist’—color blindness is a preference for whites—diversity of thought is white supremacy—whiteness is domination—being white is to be complicit in racism—being male is to be complicit in sexism—science is racist and sexist—masculinity is toxic—everything is oppressive.

“This is...wholesale intellectual corruption—the corruption of language, thought, and communication. Social justice ideology is brainwashing young minds. It’s rotting our cultural institutions. It’s sowing strife, division, animus.

"Recall that social justice activists want individuals purged for questioning BLM, purged for defending law enforcement, purged for saying “all lives matter,” purged for supporting peaceful protests over riots. They call for abolishing the police. They defend rioting and looting (or commit it themselves). They block, harass, and shut down speakers. They reflexively slander their adversaries as racists, fascists, Nazis, misogynists, or white supremacists."

…………………………………………..

I hope you’ll read this entire article. You’ll understand how deeply “anti-racists” hate America and how hard they’re trying to burn down every social convention. All must be “sacrificed on the altar of gendered racial identity.” And if you think this is some kind of fringe movement, think again. It’s infected popular culture, academia, corporate business, even the military and government agencies. A society based on this philosophy would be an absolute nightmare, a disaster of epic proportions. But we can beat this back, if we only have the courage to be vocal about it, and ABSOLUTELY REJECT IT. DO NOT SIT QUIETLY.

I’ll end with a few more quotes from the article –- about CRT'S rejection of reason and how we can and MUST fight against this –- hoping, again, that you’ll read the whole article.

…………………………

“The thuggish, authoritarian behavior of social justice activists follows not only from the specific tenets of their ideology, but from one of their deepest philosophic premises: the postmodernist rejection of reason. When facts, logic, science, and objectivity are off the table, the only alternatives are smears, deceit, intimidation, and violence....

“The only antidote to a corrupt, irrational philosophy is a rational philosophy, one upholding reason, logic, objectivity, and free will, one extolling the value and reality of the individual, one recognizing that the individual is defined and should be judged by his choices, actions, and character, not by his race or gender.168 Such a philosophy, moreover, is the only antidote to racism, sexism, and other forms of prejudice.

“Now more than ever, such a philosophy must be articulated, defended, and tirelessly fought for as if our rights, our freedom, and our nation depend on it—because they do.”

The latest large corporate entities that have prioritized leftist virtual signaling over the beliefs of their core customer base are…

Country Music Television (CMT), which is promoting the “Wear orange to support gun control” campaign. Many viewers – make that “former viewers” – are telling them bluntly that they only wear orange when they go deer hunting.

Pizza Hut is under fire for funding a fifth grade social studies “Critical Race Theory” curriculum that resulted in a shocking video of Brooklyn school children parroting the race-based, anti-American hatred they’ve been spoon-fed.

Incidentally, this isn’t just being used in Brooklyn; it’s even infiltrated to places like Iowa. Click the link to find out if your kids are being exposed to it. Also, it’s not just Pizza Hut: there’s a link to a list of a couple of dozen big companies that are also funding the teaching of racist CRT poison to our kids, including Intel, Ford, Ralph Lauren and, yes, Disney.

While we’re on the subject, here are some wise words from Dennis Prager to parents on the single best thing Americans can do to protect their kids and retake America from the hateful radical left.

"KKK Princess"

June 8, 2021

Ellie Kemper, star of “The Office” and “The Unbreakable Kimmie Schmidt,” broke under pressure from the Twitter mob and issued a groveling apology and a confession of her “white privilege” and made a donation to BLM.

https://redstate.com/alexparker/2021/06/08/the-office-actress-ellie-kemper-apologizes-for-attending-a-ball-acknowledges-her-white-privilege-n393163

And what was her heinous, racist crime? Someone found out that in 1999, when she was 19 years old, she participated in a beauty pageant that she didn’t know used to exclude blacks – a policy they did away with 20 years before she entered and a full year before she was even born. For this, she was vilified on Twitter, the cesspool of basement-dwelling “social justice warriors,” who branded her a “KKK princess.”

She made a serious strategic error in playing along with this. Now that they smell blood in the water, they’ll dig through everything she ever said and did, searching for more things they can twist to try to force more apologies from her, because apparently, their own lives are so empty, they have nothing better to do with their time than get jollies from bullying people.

I assume she must have thought she had to do this, since she works in Hollywood, the natural habitat of clueless rich leftists. (Don’t believe me? Check out Cher’s latest tweet, in which she furiously demands that the wrong Senator be driven from office for refusing to abolish the filibuster. As Jonah Goldberg notes, it's a perfect example of the yawning gap between liberals’ intensity of feelings and their actual knowledge of the issues: https://pjmedia.com/instapundit/454594/)

In a world in which Ms. Kemper didn’t fear being blacklisted over a false allegation, she would have told her attackers to get a life or ignored them. Or if she really never wanted to work in Hollywood again, she could have pointed out that every current member of the Democratic Party is supporting an organization with a shameful history of defending slavery, white supremacy, lynchings, the KKK and Jim Crow laws.
