Reject Modernity: Rebuild the Cathedral of Notre Dame the same as it was
Christianity suffered a great loss April 15, 2019. The Notre Dame Cathedral was maliciously engulfed in flames. This attack against the Christian faith comes at a time where we are weighing all considerations and peoples above the one faith that stabilized civilization — moreover, the world. At a time when ugly blocky buildings are being erected all across the West, we must reject this. We cannot allow the state and the secularists to influence the rebuilding of Notre Dame in a negative way. We must restore the Gothic architecture and its tribute to Heaven. We cannot allow postmodernism to further influence the church with its modern gross looking buildings. Newt Gingrich: "Tragic loss of Notre Dame. One of Christianity’s greatest churches and symbols. It must be rebuilt “as it was, where it was”. We should all help. Notre Dame belongs to humanity and humanity should rebuild it." President Emmanuel Macron: "This Notre-Dame Cathedral, we will rebuild it. All together. This is part of our French destiny. I am committed to this: from tomorrow a national subscription will be launched, and far beyond our borders." French billionaire François-Henri Pinault: "My father (François Pinault) and myself have decided to release a sum of €100 million from our Artemis funds (the family holding company) to participate in the effort that will be necessary for the complete reconstruction of Notre-Dame." Fashion tycoon Bernard Arnault: "The Arnault family and the LVMH group would like to show their solidarity at this time of national tragedy, and are joining up to help rebuild this extraordinary cathedral, which is a symbol of France, of its heritage and of French unity," donating €200 million. Additionally, can we really trust France to manage this project? They should consider turning over the cathedral to a Christian trust or the Vatican.
Restore Laura Loomer's PayPal Account — Commerce is Speech
Dear Fellow Serfs: Today, my friend, Jewish conservative journalist Laura Loomer was banned from PayPal, marking another instance of Big Tech using its power to silence dissenting and alternative voices. Laura has already been deplatformed from Twitter, Uber, Lyft, GoFundMe, and Venmo as a result of her advocacy journalism which the Left can conjure no answer to. Laura has sacrificed time and money— while subjecting herself to immense personal vitriol— to advocate for her beliefs, and PayPal has succumbed to outside pressures to silence this disrupting voice. In no way has Laura violated Paypal’s Terms of Service, nor did PayPal offer any sort of reasoning behind this decision. This is an egregious violation of Laura’s right to free speech and to present media content to the public, and if we do not stand up and fight back, the Left will continue its systematic effort to unperson those with dissenting ideas. The view from the ivory tower is an all-encompassing one, especially when Big Tech swears allegiance to assist individuals who want to silence you! Consider this, patriots; PayPal usually reserves disbarment for terrorists, drug dealers, serial criminals, and others who seek to send and receive money for nefarious means. Laura has simply advocated vehemently for causes she believes in, and has devoted her life to the pursuit of these causes. Regardless of our political ideology, can we truly, in good faith, say nothing while a singular 25 year old conservative Jewish woman is targeted and harassed by trillion-dollar corporations solely because they disagree with her politics? They hope you will say nothing. We cannot let them win. In this digital age, it is imperative for journalists to be allowed the right to perform commerce so they can continue their work. PayPal cannot be an industry leader if they selectively choose who may use their services based on their political affiliation. To lump Laura in with terrorists and criminals is dangerous, bad for America, and promulgates a very dangerous precedent. The Thought Police want to silence you, and have chosen to make an example out of Laura to remind us what happens when we step out of line. They want to train us like newborn puppy, and actually inform us what we can and can’t say, or think, instead of allowing their users to exercise our God-given rights and let the strongest ideas prevail. It’s time to fight back. We're demanding PayPal restore Laura's account ASAP! Stand up to our Tech Oligarchs!
The Students Of Covington Catholic Are Facing Expulsion and Need Our Help
The students of Covington Catholic High School are facing expulsion and need our help. On January 19, a now-infamous video took the internet by storm, depicting a gaggle of students from Covington Catholic High School looking on as an elderly Native American man played the drum in front of them. The boys, as they looked on, appeared enamored. However, when the video of this event hit the internet, their looks of enamor were soon mischaracterized. Scores of public figures flocked to social media, decrying the students supposed bad behavior, labeling them racists, bigots, and white supremacists. Many even called for their expulsion from Covington Catholic High School. Early Sunday morning, the Diocese of Covington and Covington Catholic High School released a statement: We condemn the actions of the Covington Catholic High School students towards Nathan Phillips specifically, and Native Americans in general, Jan. 18, after the March for Life, in Washington, D.C. We extend our deepest apologies to Mr. Phillips. This behavior is opposed to the Church’s teachings on the dignity and respect of the human person. The matter is being investigated and we will take appropriate action, up to and including expulsion. We know this incident also has tainted the entire witness of the March for Life and express our most sincere apologies to all those who attended the March and all those who support the pro-life movement. However, as this episode has played out, new videos have emerged, directly in conflict with the narrative of the mainstream media. It was not the students from Covington who approached the Native American. It was the Native American who approached the students from Covington. It was not the students from Covington who chanted "Build The Wall". It was, however, one of the Native Americans who told the students from Covington to "go back to Europe". It was not the students from Covington who instigated this fiasco. It was Native American activist, Nathan Phillips. The #BoysOfCovington need our help.
CNN must reprimand Jeffrey Toobin for his racism — Antifa is NOT a black group!
Just days ago Jeffrey Toobin, CNN's legal analyst who is wrong about everything (don't believe me? look!), maligned Black Americans by falsely labeling the left-wing political terror group known as "Antifa" (an ironically violent, fascist group that supposedly opposed fascism... through violence) a "African-American organization." Toobin, a Jewish man, was preying on the fears of CNN viewers and centuries old stereotypes about Blacks and violence. He has no business attributing this nationwide violence to Black Americans. Every measure of Antifa's membership shows it to be one of the least Black groups in America. CNN must apologize for Toobin's racism and consider terminating his contract or suspending him. Why is CNN standing with a racist? Toobin should try leaving his swanky New York apartment or consume real news if he wants an accurate picture of what is going on in America today. Call out the Fake News Media!
Commute Paul Manafort's sentence
Paul Manafort verdict: 5 counts tax fraud: Guilty 2 counts bank fraud: Guilty 1 count failure to disclose foreign bank account: Guilty 10 counts: Jury unable to reach consensus Manafort did commit multiple crimes—he is guilty, but he was pursued maliciously after it was found that he did not collude with Russia to subvert the 2016 American presidential election. We don't do malicious prosecution in America — or we shouldn't. Investigations shouldn't be a fishing expedition looking for crimes. President Trump should consider commuting Manafort's sentence. This wouldn't be a pardon, but a commutation. Let's restore our legal system. Bob Mueller shouldn't be picking winners and losers.
ANTIFA should have to play by the same rules as everyone else on social media. Suspend now
Recently, Alex Jones and InfoWars were censored by Facebook, YouTube, iTunes, Spotify, and other social media and big tech platforms. Twitter then suspended Gavin McInnes and his fraternity, the Proud Boys. Media tried to fake a connection between the McInnes and his enemies in the alt-right. With Silicon Valley suspensions flying around, why hasn't Antifa, the paramilitary arm of the Resist movement, been banned from social media? Antifa calls themselves anti-fascist, but they're anything but. They have a manual that trains them in terroristic tactics (Black bloc). They've bloodied journalists and conservatives in the streets. They're committed to violence and organized in very much the same way that Al Qaeda's terror network is. Social Media should not be a home for left-wing, violent radicalization. America cannot afford for another leftist to gun down a dozen GOP Congressmen at a baseball field or attack a US Senator in his own yard. Antifa is violating the Terms of Service of big tech and should be permanent suspended from all platforms. Tell the CEOs of Silicon Valley that Antifa and Democrats should play by the same rules as everybody else! Please spread the word. Enforce the rules: suspend Antifa.
Emergency: Tell @Disney Not to Re-Hire James Gunn!
Friday afternoon, James Gunn, the writer-director of the blockbuster comic book movie series, The Guardians of the Galaxy, was fired by Disney for hosting a large body of commentary dedicated to pedophilia (and worse). Far-right social conservative, but someone who lives and works among those in Hollywood, Ben Shapiro, quickly took to Gunn's defense. (Presumably, reciprocating for Gunn coming to Shapiro's defense just days prior.) Gunn is accused of not just making pedophilistic jokes, but writing over 10,000 comments on Twitter and an entire body of work on his personal blog, of the course of years, that he scrubbed off the internet Friday morning. Now, fans and Shapiro are trying to call Disney out. They believe Disney, which may have additional evidence, made the wrong decision. They want Disney to re-hire Gunn and restore him to a role where he is working with children and making a children's movie. Worse, Shapiro's piece is being used in Hollywood union halls and executive offices to suggest that Gunn's firing was only to "appease the Trumpists" and that conservatives actually protest the firing. Are you a conservative standing with Gunn and Shapiro against children? This is dangerous. We believe this is an error. Please petition and call Disney and Marvel and tell them NOT TO RE-HIRE JAMES GUNN. Please tweet this everywhere until Disney puts out a statement reaffirming their prudent decision.
