Antifa destroys 100-year-old iconic Elk statue

Antifa destroys 100-year-old iconic Elk statue | INTELLIGENT WORLD TODAY | Scoop.it
Around two hundred Antifa terrorists and far-left militant protesters gathered at the Portland Justice Center on Wednesday night and torched the 100-year-old elk statue. They did so much damage, it will have to be removed. It certainly has nothing to do with racism or George Floyd. No one was arrested and that is the disgrace […]
Al Cannistra's insight:

these are terrorist - that should fall under the FBI - Trump should authorize use of the FBI - and all terrorist should be shot - end of story.

WAKE UP AMERICA - protests are fine, destruction and terrorism are not

Column: One wrong ‘like’ will get you canceled by cancel culture - Chicago Tribune

Column: One wrong ‘like’ will get you canceled by cancel culture - Chicago Tribune | INTELLIGENT WORLD TODAY | Scoop.it
“Cancel culture” is a force in Democratic politics now, much in the way Joe McCarthy once was for Republicans, John Kass writes.
Al Cannistra's insight:

Perhaps one of the most disturbing articles I have even shared here. Indeed, America has become a culture of lemmings. Follow the masses (over the cliff) because (1) brainwashed by the academia (that MUST be dismantled)  (2)  unable to think or process for themselves?  (3) fear?  (4) social pressure?

.

Extreme opinions, social divide, feelings of entitlement, hatred for oneself (if you are white), condemnation of those who are not of like mind….   all being manipulated by those with an agenda – and followed by those uneducated in history (or those trying to rewrite it)

.

We are at a turning point. The test of democracy is on the line. Read the article – and THINK IT THROUGH

Want to speak out like Ben & Jerry's? Here's how to earn it

Want to speak out like Ben & Jerry's? Here's how to earn it | INTELLIGENT WORLD TODAY | Scoop.it
Being an advocacy-minded brand means putting in the work, often years in advance.
Al Cannistra's insight:

Seems that some companies are stepping out of bounds. These folks jump on the BLM express because it is the lemming thing to do right now. Imagine – increase business by following the masses. This ALLEGATION of White Supremacy being spread by far-left individuals has no place in the consumer market. If anything, it fuels the social and political divide.

.

The only retaliation is to stop buying their products – and I encourage folks to start doing just that. If they want to take sides, we should have a buy and don’t buy list.

Your Master Bedroom Is Being Renamed Over Alleged Slavery Ties

Your Master Bedroom Is Being Renamed Over Alleged Slavery Ties | INTELLIGENT WORLD TODAY | Scoop.it
The biggest bedroom in your house won't be known as the master bedroom for long—real estate agents are ditching the term due to slavery connotations.
Al Cannistra's insight:

Yeap – no more MASTER bedroom because some don’t like it. They bring down our statues, they change our language, and they definitely are telling us HOW TO THINK (if you are not with them, you are considered against them). They are destroying a free civilization – and they are being allowed to do it. They got white folks on the run (how DISGUSTING to be born white!) – and corporations with no balls are falling in line with politicians suffering from the same problem.

 

They are DESTROYERS not builders. They tear down, not construct. America needs to rise to the occasion!

 

I suppose all the S&M folks are going to have to rethink their playrooms…  no more SLAVES, no more dungeon (ASSociated with SLAVES) – yeap, people are so offended these days. Of course, they OFFEND ME – what do I get to do about it – I am a WHITE AMERICAN.

 

Pull up your panties and quit letting yourselves be manipulated – or the dying nation will fall sooner!

Remove John Wayne’s name and statues from Santa Ana, Orange County Airport
Al Cannistra's insight:

Just how long is this going to go on before REAL AMERICANS have had enough? – and DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!

 

THE USA we know, that people fought and died to build and protect, is being destroyed from within. Every skank who yells racism or discrimination is being heard. Corporations are all falling in line – out of fear - and that fear emboldens the dragon even more. REAL AMERICANS are not being heard.

 

The plan is well orchestrated. The very foundation of this country which allows these people to spew their own style of hatred is being challenged. Erase history.  Everyone who did anything to build this country is now being ripped apart – from tearing down statues to renaming buildings. Control the education system – rewrite history, do not teach civics, destroy capitalism, and feed the masses Marxism loaded with promises of equality and an unachievable promise of a level playing field. Everyone who does not follow the prescribed extreme thinking is deemed the enemy.

 

The media is espousing that WHITE is synonymous with evil. The BLM has been hijacked and has seized an opportunity for an unprecedented level of publicity to mindless followers unable to see the agenda. The country is in trouble fueled by radical extremist who need to be banished.

Social networks are broken. Here's how to rebuild trust

Social networks are broken. Here's how to rebuild trust | INTELLIGENT WORLD TODAY | Scoop.it
Facebook and Twitter can do much more to make their platforms trustworthy. Clear labeling—not mass deletions of dicey content—is key.
Al Cannistra's insight:

Actually. broken social media pales to the fact that the entire nation is broken.

.

Frightening to see a nation honoring and memorializing idols and creating a hero where none exists.

.

Frightening in that lemmings fall in line and anarchy is allowed in favor of social order.

.

Frightening in that a powershift is rewriting history.

.

Frightening to seeing the collapse of yet another civilization.

.

Then again, history does repeat and, so it will as lessons of the past are erased.

.

Frightening for the children who will inherit the world.

The Inconvenient Truth About the Republican Party

When you think of the Republican Party, what comes to mind? If you’re like many Americans, you may associate the GOP with racism, sexism, and general inequality. It’s a commonly pushed narrative by left-leaning media and academia, but as former Vanderbilt Professor of Political Science Carol Swain explains, the Republican Party was actually responsible for nearly every advancement for minorities and women in U.S. history—and remains the champion of equality to this day."
