When Homeschooler = Nazi

In Ohio (the Florida of the Midwest) there’s a network of home schoolers who are teaching their kids to be good Nazis.  And no, this is not The Onion.  They have over 2400 members receiving their materials.

Earlier this month, while the rest of the country was celebrating the achievements of civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., parents and children in the “Dissident Homeschool” network opened a lesson plan and were greeted with the words: “As Adolf Hitler wrote…”

The contents of the MLK lesson plan would be shocking for almost anyone, but for members of the 2,400-member “Dissident Homeschool” Telegram channel, this was a regular Monday at school.

“It is up to us to ensure our children know him for the deceitful, dishonest, riot-inciting negro he actually was,” the administrator of the network’s Telegram channel wrote, alongside a downloadable lesson plan for elementary school children. ”He is the face of a movement which ethnically cleansed whites out of urban areas and precipitated the anti-white regime that we are now fighting to free ourselves from.”

Since the group began in October 2021 it has openly embraced Nazi ideology and promoted white supremacy, while proudly discouraging parents from letting their white children play with or have any contact with people of any other race. Admins and members use racist, homophobic, and antisemitic slurs without shame, and quote Hitler and other Nazi leaders daily in a channel open to the public.

In America.  Who would have ever imagined that the fascists we fought in World War Two would sprout back up on American soil.  Despicable.

Ben Sira Making Friends

I would sooner keep house with a lion or a dragon than keep house with a spiteful wife. A woman’s spite changes her appearance and makes her face as grim as a bear’s. When her husband goes out to dinner with his neighbours, he cannot help heaving bitter sighs. No spite can approach the spite of a woman, may a sinner’s lot be hers! Like the climbing of a sandhill for elderly feet, such is a garrulous wife for a quiet husband. Do not be taken in by a woman’s beauty, never lose your head over a woman. 

Bad temper, insolence and shame hold sway where the wife supports the husband. Low spirits, gloomy face, stricken heart: such is a spiteful wife. Slack hands and sagging knees: such is the wife who does not make her husband happy. Sin began with a woman, and thanks to her we must all die. Do not let water find a leak, nor a spiteful woman give free rein to her tongue. If she will not do as you tell her, get rid of her. (Sir. 25:16-26)

Quote of the Day

I find it puzzling that Christians who believe Satan masquerades as a messenger of light (2 Cor. 11:14) rarely stop to consider whether Satan might also be masquerading as a messenger of the Right. – Michael Svigel

A Book Every American Probably Needs to Read

If the Guardian’s assessment is correct, then every American, especially those on the Right (the very people who need it most but certainly won’t bother with it) needs to read Myth America: Historians Take On the Biggest Legends and Lies About Our Past

This collection of essays by 21 exceptional historians has an ambitious mission: the re-education of Americans assaulted by lies more systematically than any previous generation.

The editors are two Princeton history professors, Kevin M Kruse and Julian E Zelizer. They begin with a concise history of how we reached this zenith of misinformation.

The assault on truth by a rightwing “media ecosystem” began with Rupert Murdoch’s invention of Fox News, augmented in recent years by even more fantasy-based cable networks like Newsmax and One America News.

The shamelessness of these sham journalists was best summarized by lawyers defending the most successful one, Tucker Carlson, in a suit accusing him of slander. The preppy anchor’s statements “cannot reasonably be interpreted as facts”, they said, because he so obviously engages in “non-literal commentary”.

Yes, this appears to be must reading.

Beza

bezaJesus therefore descended to earth to draw us up to Heaven. From the moment of His conception until His resurrection, He bore the punishment of our sins in order to unburden us of them. He perfectly fulfilled all righteousness so as to cover our unrighteousness. He has revealed to us the whole will of God His Father, by His words and by the example of His life, so as to show us the true way of salvation. ~Beza

Pelosi’s Attacker Wasn’t Treated By the Cops the Same Way Mr Nichols Was

The juxtaposition of the video of the murder of #TyreNichols and #paulpelosiattack show that a White guy can beat a dude with a hammer and not face cop murder but a Black guy can’t drive without being dragged out of his car and killed by a rabid gang of sadist cops.

The problem is not just racist cops. Or untrained cops. Or poorly trained cops. The problem is that too many racist cops fill the ranks along with too many sadists.

There’s something, it seems, about the profession of law enforcement that empowers racists and sadists. That must end. The ranks of officers must be rid of both racists and sadists. And at the first sign of either of those traits the officer in question must be immediately FIRED.

Whenever the Cops Murder Some Black Person Over a Trivial Nothing…

The government officials call for calm.

Instead, maybe these same officials should order their sadist cops to be calm when they interact with the public.

Then there wouldn’t be senseless MURDERS by cops every 4 days in this country.

Remove sadists from the police.  That would fix the problem.  But stop telling the public to be calm when your cops refuse to do it.

Today With Zwingli: The Unpublished Sermon on Worship of the Saints

On July 17th, Zwingli had a debate with Francis Lambert of Avignon, a Franciscan monk of twenty years’ standing, and prominent in the order. The subject was the Intercession of the Saints. Lambert had already imbibed Reformation ideas and was under the suspicion of his brethren, but had not yet left his order. In the debate Zwingli took the extreme Protestant position, and Lambert made but a feeble opposition. At the conclusion he expressed himself as Zwingli’s convert. The incident is interesting as showing that Zwingli had broken with the Old Church on a point of great practical importance.

Long previous to the debate Zwingli had preached on the topic and had meditated publishing his sermons, but he never did so. Cf. Haller’s letter of January 28, 1522 (vii., 189), in which he said that he was daily expecting to read Zwingli’s sermon on the worship of the saints.

Zwingli discussed the debate in a letter shortly afterwards:

“You should know that a certain Franciscan from France, whose name indeed was Franz, was here not many days since and had much conversation with me concerning the Scriptural basis for the doctrine of the adoration of the saints and their intercession for us. He was not able to convince me with the assistance of a single passage of Scripture that the saints do pray for us, as he had with a great deal of assurance boasted he should do. At last he went on to Basel, where he recounted the affair in an entirely different way from the reality—in fact he lied about it. So it seemed good to me to let you know about these things that you might not be ignorant of that Cumæan lion, if perchance he should ever turn your way.

“There followed within six days another strife with our brethren the preachers of the [different orders in Zurich, especially with the Augustinians]. Finally the burgomaster and the Council appointed for them three commissioners on whom this was enjoined—that Aquinas and the rest of the doctors of that class being put aside they should base their arguments alone upon those sacred writings which are contained in the Bible. This troubled those beasts so much that one brother, the father reader of the order of Preachers [i. e., the Dominicans] cut loose from us, and we wept—as one weeps when a cross-grained and rich stepmother has departed this life. Meanwhile there are those who threaten, but God will turn the evil upon His enemies.

“I suppose you have read the petition which some of us have addressed to the Bishop of Constance.… But I must return to Schuerer upstairs, where he is having some beer with several gentlemen and jokes will be in order.*

It’s a shame the sermon was never published.  It must have been fantastic.
