How The Left Creates Heroes To Push Their Agenda

Published

on

Joseph Campbell said: “A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself.”
We all want to be remembered. In all of us, there is a need to play a part in the larger scheme of life. Participating in something that is bigger than ourselves has a mythic quality, a feeling of heroism. Generally speaking, humans crave the extraordinary, to be set free from the mundane and ascend to greatness. That is why old Greek myths have lasted for thousands of years. That is why we watch superhero movies; to live out powerful, mythic fantasies.
We all know that in reality, we can’t fly, or save the world from Zod, so we find small ways to make a difference in the world. However, the Left has found a way around the mundane; the Left has discovered how to create gods and heroes out of regular people. They take a person, and build a story around them, exaggerating the facts, and blowing everything out of proportion. It is through this creation of heroes that they advance their agenda.
First example: Matthew Shepherd. According to Breitbart:

“Almost everything you think you know about the Matthew Shepard narrative is false. Matthew Shepard was the winsome young homosexual in Laramie, Wyoming who in October 1998 was tortured, killed, and left hanging grotesquely from a fence. He was discovered almost a day later and later died in the hospital from his horrific wounds…Almost immediately Shepard became a secular saint, and his killing became a kind of gay passion play where he suffered and died for the cause of homosexuality against the growing homophobia and hatred of gay America. Indeed, a Mathew Shepard industry grew rapidly with plays and foundations along with state and even national hate crimes legislation named for him.”

An author by the name of Steven Jiminez is revealing the truth in his new title, The Book of Matt.
Second example: Michael Bloomberg. According to Breitbart:

“POLITICO’s September 8 Playbook signature letter contained an ad from NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s gun group claiming ‘seven kids are murdered with guns…every day in America.'”

As it turns out, once you run the statistics, that is not true in the slightest. It’s a patent exaggeration. This is Liberal hero-making in action.
First, you have Matthew Shepherd, whose image the Liberal community has used for years to wage their war on Conservatives. Obviously, what was done to Shepherd was evil, but that’s not the point I’m trying to demonstrate. The Left only needs this story for purposes of ginning up their base to fight the opposition. The Left saw a murder—among numerous others—plucked it out, and proceeded to build a myth around it. They glorified Shepherd. Any time anything related to gay people comes up in politics, the Left trots out Matthew Shepherd. It’s a glorified version of the victim game the Left is so good at playing, using people like Michael J. Fox to promote embryonic stem cell research. Because he’s a victim of disease, he may not be criticized. The same thing is going on with Shepherd. If you criticize the gay community, you are personally attacking the Martyr.
Moving on to Bloomberg: Michael Bloomberg cites a false statistic to build a case for gun control. In this case, the hero-making is a bit different. In this case, the hero is conceptual: a dead child. Any dead child will do, so long as Liberals can use them to get what they want. They begin by constructing the story that seven children are murdered every day by guns. The faux statistic seems just reasonable enough that many people won’t attempt to verify it. They then proceed to trot that statistic around, so that gun advocates will look evil and thoughtless. How dare those Conservatives! They’re practically killing the children themselves! But the statistic is a lie to begin with. The Left has lied to create a hero: fictional dead children.
The elite Liberals know that the average Democrat Joe will fall right into these hero-traps because they also know that human beings want to be extraordinary. And if the average Joe cannot be extraordinary, they will cling to people that are. Liberals will use the story of Matthew Shepherd, and the statistic about the seven murdered children to make their acolytes feel like heroes themselves. It’s a very attractive idea.
Truth is often simple, not grandiose. Matthew Shepherd was brutally murdered; that is the truth. Guns sometimes kill children; that is the truth. But it is the perspective applied to these stories that makes all the difference. The Left knows that, and they warp any story they can to advance their agendas.

ICE: Court Order Forced Them To Release 250 Immigrants With Criminal Histories

The public should know that the ruling undoubtedly places them at greater risk.’

Published

By

A California ruling has forced Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to release criminal aliens from detention in Adelanto.

“While opponents who continuously seek to discredit the agency might otherwise mislead the public to believe that those in detention pose no risk to public safety, nothing could be further from the truth,” he said. “ICE has complied with this overreaching court order; however, the public should know that the ruling undoubtedly places them at greater risk.”

Fox News:

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) announced on Tuesday that it released 250 immigrants with criminal histories in response to a coronavirus-related order issued by the Central District of California.

The news came a week after U.S. Judge Terry Hatter demanded the agency either release or deport detainees at the Adelanto ICE processing center in Southern California in order to halt the spread of coronavirus infections.

ICE claims that “despite requests to transfer detainees to alternative locations,” it ended up releasing 250 from the facility, which is run by a federal contractor. Those released had histories of a variety of crimes, including assualt with a deadly weapon, driving under the influence, “lewd/lascivious acts with a child,” child cruelty, illegal re-entry after removal, and other offenses.

ICE’s Senior Official Performing the Duties of the Director Tony H. Pham slammed the order as a danger to public safety and accused the court of overstepping its authority. More

This is what it sounds like to me: The best way to halt the spread of Coronavirus is to release those who may be infected into the general public.

Those being released have histories of a variety of crimes, including assualt with a deadly weapon, driving under the influence, “lewd and lascivious acts with a child,” child cruelty, illegal re-entry after removal, and other many other offenses.

Kiddie Porn-Like ‘Cuties’ Show Sends Netflix Cancellations Soaring

Netflix lost a record number of subscribers after the backlash over its airing of ‘Cuties,’ the movie that sexually exploits little girls.

Published

Netflix lost a record number of subscribers after the backlash over its airing of Cuties, the movie that sexually exploits little girls.

According to a new review of the Netflix subscriber situation, the streamer saw its cancellation rate soar 800 percent as a result of its posting of the movie that turned 11-year-old girls into twerking strippers.

For those unaware, the movie hyper-sexualizes pre-adolescent girls by following a group of 11-year-old girls in France who start training to become strippers. They explore dressing in suggestive clothing, they begin learning to twerk suggestively, wear adult-like makeup, and generally try to emulate prostitutes.

Netflix recently claimed that it got “pretty close” to its forecast for new subscriber growth in the third quarter but didn’t quite make it.

But the numbers as analyzed by New York data analytics firms Antenna and YipitData did not find the same happy story that Netflix did with its report on subscribers.

Antenna, for instance, found that Netflix lost five times as many subscribers in September’s first couple of weeks than was lost in all of August. As it happens, the backlash against its posting of Cuties exploded at the beginning of September.

YipitData’s look at the numbers gave an even worse picture. YipitData revealed that September’s cancellations were 8 times of those in August. YipitData said the cancellation data was “a multi-year high” for lost subscribers.

Netflix has refused to bow to the boycott and has proudly stood up for its perverted film.

Looks like that was a very bad idea.

The streamer has also ben indicted for exploiting children.

Rapper Who Bragged in Video About Ripping Off Unemployment Arrested by Feds

Rapper Nuke Bizzle who rapped about ripping off unemployment benefits was arrested him for the fraud.

Published

on

Rapper Nuke Bizzle thought he was the fo shizzle by rapping about how he was ripping off unemployment benefits, but apparently the feds were not amused and arrested him for the fraud.

According to a Department of Justice statement, the rapper, whose real name is Fontrell Antonio Baines, “boasted in a YouTube music video about getting rich from committing unemployment benefits fraud.”

The government alleges that the Los Angeles-based Bizzle and several of his buddies used fake addresses to defraud the agency of up to $700,000 in unemployment benefits.

He was arrested on Oct. 16 “pursuant to a criminal complaint alleging a scheme to fraudulently obtain unemployment insurance benefits under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act.”

Authorities were alerted to the fraud by people who saw and reported the rapper’s own videos.

In one of the videos, for instance, Bizzle bragged about “go[ing] to the bank with a stack of” unemployment cards.

The government added:

The affidavit further alleges that Baines bragged about his ability to defraud the EDD in a music video posted on YouTube and in postings to his Instagram account, under the handles “nukebizzle1” and “nukebizzle23.” For example, Baines appears in a music video called “EDD” in which he boasts about doing “my swagger for EDD” and, holding up a stack of envelopes from EDD, getting rich by “go[ing] to the bank with a stack of these” – presumably a reference to the debit cards that come in the mail. A second rapper in the video intones, “You gotta sell cocaine, I just file a claim….”

Bizzle faces a maximum of 22 years in prison related to the charges if he is convicted.

Young Black Voters No Longer Loyal to the Democrat Party

More and more, Gen Z black voters are questioning why blacks should be loyal to the Democrat Party that they see as severely lacking in appeal.

Published

More and more, Gen Z black voters are questioning why blacks should be loyal to the Democrat Party that they see as severely lacking in appeal.

According to a report at Politico, many of these young blacks born after 1990 are wondering just why they should be all fired up about the Democrats when every single Democrat-run city in America is an absolute, bankrupt mess.

Certainly, blacks in the U.S. are still holding onto the outmoded idea that the Democrat Party is the “party of civil rights,” a false notion that gained steam in the 1970s. But things seem to be on the verge of changing.

A 2019 Pew Research Center study, for instance, found that liberals make up a majority of the Democratic voting bloc, but blacks are not so ready to claim to be liberal. 43 percent of them said they identified as moderate and 25 percent even identified as conservative.

Some of these blacks who consider themselves more conservative are realizing that the Democrat Party stands against families, for one. And that activism against traditional marriage and families is detrimental to the black community.

Many of these young black conservatives are organizing and talking amongst themselves about how bad the Democrat agenda has been for them.

As Fox News noted:

For example, Congress’ 1994 Crime Bill is being scrutinized anew by Gen Zers across the country. Many feel the bill, which Biden co-authored, disproportionately affects Black communities — even though the ban on assault weapons was popular among Black lawmakers almost 30 years ago.

Young Black conservatives say their support for Trump is based on policies that work for them: the First Step Act, the FUTURE Act and economic success leading to historically low Black unemployment numbers.

This growing movement is important for Republicans. Because, even though the Democrats have been able to count on the near total, blind support of blacks in the past, with elections often as close as they have been recently, even if 10 to 30 percent of blacks stray from the Democrats, it could hurt the leftist party’s chances of winning elections.

Trump Was Right-Harvard Admits Patients Over COVID Have ‘Long-Lasting Immunity’

Twitter censored what it called “Trump’s false claim” that he has immunity from COVID-19, but now even Harvard is admitting that Trump may be right.

Published

On Wednesday, social media giant Twitter censored what it called “Trump’s false claim” that he has immunity from COVID-19, but now even Harvard is admitting that Trump may be right.

“A total and complete sign off from White House Doctors yesterday. That means I can’t get it (immune), and can’t give it. Very nice to know!!!” Trump wrote on Twitter Sunday.

But Wednesday, Twitter had added a warning label that claimed that Trump’s tweet “violated the Twitter Rules about spreading misleading and potentially harmful information related to COVID-19.”

Twitter’s operatives — who are now apparently posing as scientists and doctors when not a one of them are either — took it upon themselves to “correct” the president of the United States.

But now, even Harvard University is admitting that Trump was on to something with his claims of immunity.

In an October 8 posting, the university noted that “people who survive serious COVID-19 infections have long-lasting immune responses against the virus.”

“The study, published in Science Immunology, offers hope that people infected with the virus will develop lasting protection against reinfection. The study also demonstrates that measuring antibodies can be an accurate tool for tracking the spread of the virus in the community,” the story added.

So, who the hell does Twitter think they are censoring the president when actual doctors and scientists have said that Trump is probably right. He does have an amount of immunity now that he has come through the coronavirus.

Ah, but Twitter knows better.

CNN Analyst And Former FBI Agent “We Have A Biological Terrorist In The White House”

Asha Rangappa, an analyst for CNN and a former FBI special agent tweeted: “We have a biological terrorist in the White House.” This follows President Trump’s return to the White House on Monday evening after treatment for the Coronavirus.

Defending her claim, Asha Rangappa cited a Justice Department memo stating back in March that the novel Coronavirus “appears to meet the statutory definition of a biological agent” and that those who engage in the “purposeful exposure and infections of others” could be charged for terrorism-related offenses.

While there are allegations that he knew about his positive diagnosis significantly earlier than he had announced it on Thursday evening, there is no certifiable evidence that he knowingly exposed officials and staffers to the virus.

Twitter took aim!
