NEW YORK (AP) — The Uncle Ben’s rice brand is getting a new name: Ben’s Original.
Parent firm Mars Inc. unveiled the change Wednesday for the 70-year-old brand, the latest company to drop a logo criticized as a racial stereotype. Packaging with the new name will hit stores next year.
“We listened to our associates and our customers and the time is right to make meaningful changes across society,” said Fiona Dawson, global president for Mars Food, multisales and global customers. “When you are making these changes, you are not going to please everyone. But it’s about doing the right thing, not the easy thing.”
Several companies have retired racial imagery from their branding in recent months, a ripple effect from the Black Lives Matters protests over the police killing of George Floyd and other African Americans.
Quaker Oats announced in June that it would drop Aunt Jemima from syrup and pancake packages, responding to criticism that the character’s origins were based the “mammy,” a black woman content to serve her white masters. Quaker said packages without the Aunt Jemima image will start to appear in stores by the end of the year, although the company has not revealed the new logo.
The owner of Eskimo Pie has also said it will change its name and marketing of the nearly century-old chocolate-covered ice cream bar. Beyond food brands, the Washington NFL franchise dropped the “Redskins” name and Indian head logo amid pressure from sponsors including FedEx, Nike, Pepsi and Bank of America.
Geechie Boy Mill, a family-owned operation in South Carolina that makes locally-grown and milled white grits, is also planning a name change. Geechie is a dialect spoken mainly by the descendants of African-American slaves who settled on the Ogeechee river in Georgia, according to Merriam-Webster.com.
“We are in the process of changing our name and have developed a whole new brand. We look forward to sharing it with the public,” said Greg Johnsman, owner of Geechie Boy Mill.
Mars had announced in the summer that the Uncle Ben’s brand would “evolve.”
Since the 1940s, the rice boxes have featured a white-haired Black man, sometimes with a bow tie, an image critics say evokes servitude. Mars has said the face was originally modeled after a Chicago maitre d’ named Frank Brown. In a short-lived 2007 marketing campaign, the company elevated Uncle Ben to chairman of a rice company.
Dawson said months of conversations with employees, customer studies and other stakeholders led the company to settle on “Ben’s Original. She said the company is still deciding on an image to accompany the new name.
Mars also announced several other initiatives, including a $2 million investment in culinary scholarships for aspiring Black chefs in partnership with the National Urban League. It also is planning a $2.5 million investment in nutritional and education programs for students in Greenville, Mississippi, the majority African-American city where the rice brand has been produced for more than 40 years.
Mars said it has set a goal of increasing the ranks of racial minorities in U.S. management positions by 40%. The company did not give a timeframe for reaching that number.

Barack Obama openly boasted in 2007 that progressives planned a “fundamental transformation of America,” but few took him seriously. As a professional community organizer schooled by radical communist Bill Ayers [who was influenced by Cultural Marxist Saul Alinsky], Obama envisioned a post-Christian society where everyone looks at themselves, not as individuals created in the image of God but as a member of a “racial identity” or “sexual identity.” A society where biological boys are allowed to declare themselves girls, use girls’ bathrooms, engage in girls’ athletic competitions and then, after beating the girls on the field with an unfair biological advantage, showering with the girls in the school locker-rooms.
In this new social order, white children are not only taught that they come from an evil heritage, but they are taught how to diminish and denigrate those who haven’t bought into the “white is evil” narrative.
Since Black Lives Matter took the nation by storm following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, an army of race-baiting consultants have descended upon corporate HR departments, local police departments and cities of all sizes. They were already in our schools and many of our churches. It’s up to us to stop them.

A literal coup d’état – a bloody revolution against the American system – to depose President Trump and prevent a second term at all costs is looking like a foregone conclusion heading into November.
Reporting from the pro-Trump news aggregation site, Revolver News showed that the so-called Transition Integrity Project (TIP) is filled with Soros-backed operatives and Never Trumpers. Despite the obviously partisan nature of the project, it is being heralded as unbiased and non-partisan. Public policy is being crafted based on TIP’s recommendation to “secure the vote,” ie. doing everything possible to make sure Trump is not the winner.
The shadowy Democrat operative John Podesta, paying the role of Biden, refused to concede during a TIP wargaming exercise simulating election scenarios. He went as far to start a civil war while roleplaying as Biden in this theoretical exercise, suggesting that millions of deaths would be worth it to stop the American people from making the wrong choice. Similarly, Hillary Clinton has implored Biden to refuse to concede on election day, even if he gets drubbed by Trump at the polls. This is how reasonable Democrats protect Democracy against the pesky will of the people.
Opinion columnist David Brooks laid out the scenario in the New York Times of what happens if President Trump “doesn’t leave” the White House after the election. This is laying the groundwork for Trump to be removed if there is a tremendous amount of election fraud, which could very well be the case due to widespread mail-in voting, and the election is ultimately disputed. Brooks is giving marching orders to the hordes on what must be done in order to ensure that Trump cannot get a second term no matter what the people decide.
Vice Presidential wannabe Sen. Kamala Harris actually helped raise bail funds to get looters, murderers and terrorists back on the streets of Minneapolis while the riots were at their peak following the drug overdose death of violent felon George Floyd. Since becoming vice president, she has not relented – making an appearance on Late Show with Stephen Colbert to endorse the sustained violence and promise that it will continue until the election and beyond.
“They’re not going to stop before election day in November, and they’re not going to stop after election day, and everyone should take note of that on both levels that they’re not going to let up, and they should not, and we should not,” Harris said.
BLM leaders are proud marxists openly agitating for an overthrow of the capitalist system. And nobody seems to care or notice. Well, perhaps some of the commoners in flyover country care, but they’re in the process of being replaced by a third-world foreigner so their opinion does not matter much. Nobody in any serious position of authority within the federal government cares, certainly not Attorney General Bill Barr and U.S. Attorney John Durham, who have been criticized by Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch for their non-investigationinto deep state crimes. Despite Barr’s public pronouncements, his agents are more focused on going after former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon, and regularly makes excuses for ANTIFAwhile profiling supposed white supremacists as being the real domestic terror threat.
Our elected officials will not be saving us from the onslaught. It is not difficult to comprehend how the fake news media, which has lied about Russia, Ukraine, COVID-19, Black Lives Matter, and virtually everything else, could gin up another deception to cast the election into doubt even if Trump is the winner. These left-wing revolutionaries are remarkably brazen in their scheming to influence an election, stoke racial divisions, turn cities into dust, create an orgy of mayhem, and rip up the Bill of Rights and Constitution. This is who they are, who they always were, and who they always will be. But what are conservatives doing in response to this?
Sure, we all like to wave the flag and talk about how much we love our country, but what are we willing to do to actually protect it?
Unlike liberals, conservatives have the perspective to be able to enjoy and be thankful for their blessings. They are not constantly envious of their fellow man. They appreciate the privilege of living in a first-world Western country with the rule of law, private property rights, individual liberty, and the relative safety of their families. However, appreciation for these first-world amenities can become a false idol when they are cherished above all else. Too many Americans have become fat and happy with the good life; losing touch with the necessities of sacrifice and struggle. They are living their credit financed American dream, accumulating a great deal of material wealth, at the expense of the nation.
The Founding Fathers were men of nobility who were living incredibly well under the British crown, but they yearned for something more. They were not willing to look the other way as their liberties were deprived from them. They were willing to sacrifice everything to even have a chance at true liberty. Was their revolution perfect? Of course not. Was it one of the greatest acts to promote human freedom in world history? Yes, indubitably so.
It is true that King George, in comparison to the tyrants of today, seems pretty fair-minded by comparison. The tinpot despots of yesteryear never could have fathomed the ghastly bureaucratic monstrosity that lords over us today. However, the Founders were not willing to cede an inch to those who were oppressing them. The small group of patriots, guided by the provincial hand of God, were able to drag a captive population into a revolution that seemed so improbable as to be foolhardy. And yet, they achieved absolute victory, a fact that sticks in the craw of those who would wish to yield absolute state power to this very day.
The Founders achieved absolute victory because they were bold and fearless. Modern conservatives must be similarly bold and willing to sacrifice everything to stop their civilization from collapsing. The Left has already declared war. They are coming for everything. And because of the institutional systemic racism by the privileged white male patriarchy, or whatever, they have an unquenchable moral imperative to burn, loot and murder. After the Biden administration brings over 50 million or so climate refugees, not even the suburbs will be safe from the chaos.
The amenities of the first-world nation may still be intact but they are illusory. They are the spoils of a sinister, globalist-dominated system, which requires decent people to tolerate corruption, filth and decadence in order to sustain it. Americans have been bought off with luxuries and distractions. They have looked the other way while their nation has been devastated, taking a laissez-faire approach to their sacred birthright at their great peril. But there is one more chance to renew the country; however, the chance will not be around for long and will come at a substantial cost. If conservatives are not willing to consider this option, the Republic will be lost forever.
It is given that the plurality of Jews wouldn’t vote for Donald J. Trump even if Moses endorsed him. We shouldn’t look for logic here. As prominent Zionist Max Nordau once observed, “logic is a Greek art and Jews can’t tolerate it”.
Tom Teicholz, the author of the new book The Worst President Ever.: Prominent Republican and Former Trump Administration Officials Speak Out Against Trump, is not an exception. In it, rather than support his case, he offers an unending barrage of selective opinions of Trump opponents and disgruntled former employees who for the most part criticize the President’s intimidating personality and abrasive style.
Having said this, we agree with him that Donald J. Trump is the worst president ever… for the Democrats/socialists.
When it comes to the substance however, “the worst president ever,” is striving for new world order reversing his predecessors’ embrace of globalism, Islamism and Iran. His building blocks include a restored military, energy independence, defended borders, and notwithstanding a temporary setback caused by Coronavirus, a robust economy, not seen since the tenure of Dwight Eisenhower. This surfeit of blessing allows Trump to conduct economic and foreign policies in a manner previously unavailable to his predecessors since the decade following World War II.
In effect, he ushered in a New Age of Nationalism which horrified his critics, especially Jews, who had spent the last 80 years decrying Nationalism as an evil rather than a good. Whereas, Zionism was born in the age of Nationalism and has remained true to its origins.
Overall, his critics failed to grasp the essence and the benefits of Trump’s statecraft and foreign policy based on raison d’état — national interests.
The list of President Trump’s accomplishments is well beyond the scope of this article, so we limit them to the “Jewish issues.”
President Trump became the first US president to visit the Western (aka, “Wailing”) Wall
At the beginning of Trump presidency America expected an era of protracted confrontation with the Arab World. Toward the end of his first term, America is expecting an era of peace. He accomplished this coming down decidedly in Israel’s favor thereby convincing the Arabs that it was futile to resist Israel.
Trump’s the Middle East peace initiative is rival to Theodore Roosevelt’s balance-of-power diplomacy during the mediation of the Treaty of Portsmouth for which he was awarded the Noble Peace Prize.
Obama had alienated the Arabs by embracing the Mullahs of Iran and entering the nuclear deal known as Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). Trump withdrew from the deal and spent the last 3.5 years pushing Iran back thereby endearing himself to the Arabs who consider Iran a mortal enemy. Trump skillfully leveraged the USA position to induce collaboration between Israelis and Arabs against their common danger.
In the process, Trump:
The publicized criticism of Trump is a surrogate for a deep underlying ideological divide in America. The old adage, “There are two types of Jews — those who believe that Judaism is about social justice and those who know Hebrew,” perfectly reflects the current political environment.
The idea of social justice, in terms of helping the sick and the poor, is deeply embedded in Judaism. Living in ghettos and being persecuted for two millennia, the Jewish people have been struggling to reconcile their tragic history with contemporary reality. The experience has led them to take on and support the cause of every underdog and liberal movement in sight, no matter how unworthy, no matter how illogical or no matter how it imperiled their own interests or safety.
This is referred to as Tikkun Olam in the Talmud. Those who know Hebrew, know that it is an activity aimed at completing God’s work. Those who don’t know Hebrew divorce this activity from completing God’s work and think of it as a good in and of itself. Their divine mission is to change society upon their verities. This phenomenon explains why Orthodox Jews by and large voted for Trump in 2016 and are expected to vote for him in 2020 even in greater numbers.
The social justice crowd is not motivated by concerns for Israel and they are not motivated by the interests of the United States. Their obsession is social justice which they believe is not currently available. They believe that this can best be achieved through socialism and wealth redistribution.
This Party is determined to become the ruling party once again, through any means including making false accusations, fabricating or destroying evidence and election fraud.
Tom Teicholz, uses a pen, the others, such as the Jewish Community Action, a Minnesota-based group, are actively participating in demonstrations and riots in support of the so-called racial justice and economic equality.
Some wealthy Jews, in an act of colossal memory loss, sponsor Antifa and Black Lives Matter just like their ancestors who financed the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia. They forget, if they ever knew, that their ancestors ended up facing a firing squad of triumphant socialism. Thus they support a party whose every postulate is a fraud:

First, we survived being born to mothers who may have smoked and/or drank – while they were pregnant.
They took aspirin, ate blue cheese dressing, tuna from a can, and didn’t get tested for diabetes.
Then, after that trauma, we were put to sleep on our tummies in baby cribs covered with bright colored lead-based paints.
We had no childproof lids on medicine bottles, locks on doors or cabinets, and, when we rode our bikes, we had baseball caps, not helmets, on our heads.
As infants and children, we would ride in cars with no car seats, no booster seats, no seat belts, no airbags, bald tires and sometimes no brakes.
Riding in the back of a pick- up truck on a warm day was always a special treat.
We drank water from the garden hose and not from a bottle.
We shared one soft drink with four friends, from one bottle, and no one actually died from this.
We ate cupcakes, white bread, real butter and bacon. We drank Kool-Aid made with real white sugar. And we weren’t overweight.
Because we were always outside playing…that’s why!
We would leave home in the morning and play all day, as long as we were back when the streetlights came on.
No one was able to reach us all day and, we were OKAY.
We would spend hours building our go-carts out of scraps and then ride them down the hill, Only to find out that we forgot about brakes. After running into the bushes a few times, we learned to solve the problem.
We did not Have Play Stations, Nintendo and X-boxes. There were no video games, no 150 channels on cable, no video movies or DVDs, no surround-sound or CDs, No cell phones, no personal computers, no internet and no chat rooms. WE HAD FRIENDS and we went outside and found them!
We fell out of trees, got cut, broke bones and lost teeth, and there were no lawsuits from those accidents.
We would get spankings with wooden spoons, switches, ping-pong paddles, or just a bare hand, and no one would call child services to report abuse.
We ate worms, and mud pies made from dirt, and the worms did not live in us forever.
We were given BB guns for our 10th birthdays, 22 rifles for our 12th, rode horses, made up games with sticks and tennis balls, and although we were told it would happen – we did not put out very many eyes.
We rode bikes or walked to a friend’s house and knocked on the door or rang the bell, or just walked in and talked to them.
Little League had tryouts and not everyone made the team. Those who didn’t had to learn to deal with disappointment.
The idea of a parent bailing us out if we broke the law was unheard of… they actually sided with the law!
These generations have produced some of the best risk-takers, problem solvers, and inventors ever.
The past 60 to 85 years have seen an explosion of innovation and new ideas.
We had freedom, failure, success and responsibility, and we learned how to deal with it all.
If you are one of those born between 1925 &1955, CONGRATULATIONS!
You might want to share this with others who have had the luck to grow up as kids before the lawyers and the government regulated so much of our lives for our own good.
Kind of makes you want to run through the house with scissors, doesn’t it….?
I have regrets in saying this, but most Americans seem to have been taught to engage in a certain way of thinking that just does not match Reality.
Most Americans seem to think life is a Hollywood script, and is supposed to work a certain way. That there are certain “truisms,” like Truth, and Justice. That all women are sacred. That elections matter. That people are basically “good.”
That writing about certain things in a polite, analytic manner is a way of “fighting clean,” as opposed to “dirty.”
Well…what if I told you “fighting clean” is the way you’re required by dirty Forces to behave? Because they’ve co-opted you and control your brain.
And what if I told you that “fighting dirty,” is the Way of Truth and a Clean Reality.
And that by fighting “dirty,” you’re really fighting “clean.”
See, the Left has us pretty well trained to view a certain version of Reality. We’ve been taught almost from birth by TV, stories, movies, entertainers, athletes, politicians, and Presidents. We’ve been expertly instructed and twisted in PsyOps that distort and distract us from the Truth. What’s real.
We’re constantly distracted by a seeming need to obsessively engage in repetitive behavior. Even if doing the same exact thing over and over and expecting different results is by definition psychotic. Their version of Reality is why nothing seems to make sense. It’s what they seem to want and have trained us for. And we Obey.
For instance, they seem to want us thinking UFOs—for one thing—are real and not just advanced Earth military hardware. A UFO always has a “story.” A UFO is always “good” or “bad.” It always comes with some sort of message or ending or duty we “must” take on.
Kids, if any alien race had the power and means to actually travel here from some wayyy distant planet, then they wouldn’t actually need to come here. Not for anything. They would already have everything.
There are billions upon billions of Galaxies, planets and stars. There are more galaxies in the visible universe than sand on all the beaches of planet Earth. There are uncounted tons of minerals, water, gas, ice, food stuffs—ANYthing you might require, all for the taking—elsewhere than on Earth.
There’s no reason for “aliens” to come here.
There’s no reason for alien wars depicted in movies and on TV. There’s no need for all the “Hollywood, BANG! BANG and SHOOT! SHOOT!”
To conquer another planet all you’d really have to do is tip an asteroid down into it, and KABOOM!
No. Other than the Asteroid Belt and its minerals—which are also found everywhere else—we have NOTHing such aliens could possibly want.
In fact, if Hollywood aliens really did land on the White House lawn we’d have to yell at them: “WHAT the hell do you want?” And, “Get the hell off the lawn!”
But that’s not what Hollywood tells us we must believe.
And how Hollywood and the Elites allow us permission to “analyze” and “comment” and “write” about current events.
We are REQUIRED to do these things a certain way.
We are REQUIRED to be polite, non-confrontational, and permissive. These are the rules, and anyone prominent who does not follow them fully can be destroyed.
Ergo to be published and widely read it seems one must almost always play by rules of the Left. And Hollywood. And TV. And entertainers. And athletes, politicians, and Presidents. One must Obey.
It’s a game. A show. Make believe. Unicorns and Rainbows.
It’s meant to keep you thinking a certain way and hoping.
Thinking whatever way “THEY” want you to think.
Whatever the controlling powers of any era deign to be the “reality” they want you to live in and obey.
Nothing has changed.
This is old stuff.
Fer chrissakes, this stuff comes from the distant past.
In fact, at one point even the ancient Greeks actually banned rhapsōidoi or performers from certain poems, songs, and stories because they were too much of a DISTRACTION from “Truth.”
When ancient kings put their profile on a coin, or bragged on stone cut with hieroglyphics, they were engaging in politics, propaganda, or the “news” as they wanted it perceived.
BlackOps, False Flags, and The Big Lie are nothing new.
And these same ops are designed and propagated to keep us tame, and in good herd-order. Ready for whatever our “leaders” see as coming “next.” Ready for whatever we are designated by them to Best do and serve their needs.
Ready for whatever we are supposed to do.
Peer through the screens of distraction, entertainment, and Reality.
Don’t play the game.
Be smarter than that.
After all, these so-called, “smart Elites” seem pretty damn dumb.
The Wuhan virus has sped up existing processes, such as hastening inevitable deaths, changing the business world, and exposing the left.
You’ve probably read that 94% of Wuhan virus deaths happened to people who already had compromised health, whether from extreme age or diseases that were already putting stress on their bodies. Statistically, the members of that 94% cohort were more likely to precede the rest of us in death, even without the virus. What the virus did was to grossly, and tragically accelerate the process.
Learning the above data made me realize that the Wuhan virus has been an accelerant in many areas of American life. That is, it’s presence in America resulted in existing trends suddenly exploding into warp speed. Or for those of us who still remember long-playing records, the Wuhan virus took trends that were proceeding at 33 1/3 RPMs and ramped them up to 78 RPMs.
First, as noted above, the virus struck people who were fragile because of advanced age or ongoing health conditions, but weren’t facing imminent death, and killed them.
Second, the virus speeded up the move to telecommuting. I’ve been telecommuting since the early 1990s. The technology then was already good enough for me to do my legal research online and email my word product to my clients (all of which were law firms).
Over the years, it’s gotten even better. Back then, I had to get my court filings to the clients at least 24 hours in advance so that my clients could create the multiple hard copies needed for filing with the court and sending to opposing counsel. Now, the briefs never even become hard copies, while all the evidentiary documents are instantly scanned. Many courts don’t want paper filings. The valiant bike messengers who used to keep San Francisco legal practices afloat by whizzing through traffic to get last-minute filings to the courthouses became unnecessary.
I’ve just given you one anecdote about one field. However, the Wuhan virus suddenly turned the white-collar world into a telecommuting world. Take this story about Pinterest, one of the many entirely online businesses that realized that office space is an unnecessary expense:
Pinterest, a social-sharing site popular for pinning recipes, home inspiration and more, has canceled its large San Francisco office lease.
The lease was for 88 Bluxome, a high-rise complex to-be-constructed near Pinterest’s existing San Francisco headquarters. The company cited a shift to work-from-home due to the coronavirus pandemic in its decision. Pinterest will keep its current city offices, however.
“As we analyze how our workplace will change in a post-COVID world, we are specifically rethinking where future employees could be based,” Pinterest Chief Financial Officer Todd Morgenfeld said in a statement Friday. “A more distributed workforce will give us the opportunity to hire people from a wider range of backgrounds and experiences.”
The termination fee for the 490,000-square-foot office space is $89.5 million, Bloomberg reports
In New York, it’s currently a big question whether the highrises that have stood vacant for months will ever fill again. This article notes that New York office towers emptied before — after the 1918 Spanish flu epidemic and after 9/11 — only to fill up again. Back then, though, telecommuting was not an option. (Even in 9/11, the technology wasn’t the same as it is today.) Also, back then, big-city mayors (at least, Democrat big-city mayors) hadn’t welcomed crime and intentionally driven out the middle and the monied classes.
Third, the virus speeded up the left’s antics. Antifa is nothing new. When Trump was elected, Antifa mobs started flexing their muscles in Berkeley and Oakland. Those were warm-ups. The dislocations of the Wuhan virus was like the starting gun for the Antifa mob. They were warmed up and waiting on the starting blocks for the signal. I’m willing to bet that what’s helped their virulence is the fact that a lot of people who previously had jobs are now getting money for free. This is especially true for teachers and criminals, both of whom have seen a diminution in their work thanks to the Wuhan virus:
Apparently we can’t open schools because doing so would severely deplete the number of available rioters and anarchists… https://t.co/tikzWL6aMA

Fourth, alternatives to disastrous public schooling have gotten a giant kickstart. Parents have been unhappy with public schooling for a long time, but it was always easier to keep the kids in the schools while hoping for the best. With schools refusing to teach, parents are opting for pods, tutors, and homeschooling. Many are discovering that their students are doing very well when they’re removed from the pathologies of public school. The ones who were beginning to run with a bad crowd aren’t, because there are no more crowds, let alone bad ones. Parents who were dismayed by leftist indoctrination are enjoying its absence.
Fifth, Americans got a really swift look at the Democrats’ dark heart thanks to its Zoom convention. If it hadn’t been for the virus, the convention as televised would have looked like an energetic, ebullient affair. We would have had endless crowd shots of visually diverse people happily screaming their support for Kamala and Biden. There would have been speeches complete with applause and balloons and all sorts of happy stuff.
For their convention, though, the Democrats opted for grim settings, dark colors, and small spaces. Not only was the convention visually terribly depressing, but the depressing speeches without applause lines became even grimmer. And then there was the fact that, without a visually diverse audience that the TV cameras could pan (Look at all the black people! Look at all the Hispanic people! Look at all the people with rainbow flags!), it became very obvious that the people leading the Democrat party are mostly old and white.
As the Republican convention showed, it didn’t have to be that way. Republicans opted for visuals that were expansive, bright, and uplifting. In addition, they chose diverse speakers, rather than the Democrats’ tried-and-true reliance on diverse spectators. Americans were treated to people white people, black people, Native American people, Hispanic people, handicapped people, and more, no longer on the floor cheering, but on stage speaking. And they didn’t speak about misery and hate. They spoke about an American unity premised on values and hard work.
I don’t think those fundamental differences in vision would have been so obvious with traditional conventions. That was something else useful that the Wuhan virus accelerant exposed.
Sixth, the Wuhan virus is speeding up the inevitable, and much to be desired, demise of American colleges and universities. These institutions have been ground zero of the leftist takeover of America. If you’re wondering why corporations not only paid obeisance to Black Lives Matter, but also paid millions in hard cash, it’s because their managerial ranks are filled with graduates of those colleges. All of the worst ideas in society today were incubated in American colleges. Readers know that I’ve been complaining for years about how much they cost, how little they teach, and how completely they indoctrinate.
Thanks to the virus, though, the colleges are afraid to re-open. They’re holding online classes, but refusing to give tuition refunds for all the social, hands-on, in-person experiences the kids aren’t getting. The refunds should also cover all the infrastructure costs the colleges and universities aren’t incurring.
Parents who see what their kids are learning are going to realize that they’re paying for nothing or for worse than nothing. Instead of encouraging kids to go to college, parents will start urging kids to get a job or learn a trade. They’ll realize that the knowledge colleges once had something of a monopoly on is freely available online.
The parents of boys will be grateful that their sons are no longer constantly at risk of being accused without due process of sexual assault. And all those parents who mindlessly believed that fake statistic that 1 out of every 4 college women will be sexually assaulted will no doubt be happy to have their daughters safely at home.
That’s six things that got sped up thanks to the Wuhan virus, and they’re all fundamentally important. Do you have more ideas?
This is the Democrats’ platform.
BLM Threatens to Rip President Trump from White House: “We About to Go Get that MotherF***er!”
Most people don’t realize the Black Lives Matter organization is a Marxist anarchist group.
By David Harris, August 30, 2020:
The three black lesbian founders, 2 of them self-proclaimed trained Marxists, proudly promote black advancement, transgenderism, the dissolving of the traditional “nuclear” family, and women supremacy by ending male-dominated environments, to name a few.
They identify their members as “Comrades”, the standard form of address in the Russian Armed Forces and Police of Russia.
From their website:
“We are unapologetically Black in our positioning. In affirming that Black Lives Matter, we need not qualify our position. To love and desire freedom and justice for ourselves is a prerequisite for wanting the same for others.”
“We engage comrades with the intent to learn about and connect with their contexts.”
We make space for transgender brothers and sisters to participate and lead.
We are self-reflexive and do the work required to dismantle cisgender privilege and uplift Black trans folk, especially Black trans women who continue to be disproportionately impacted by trans-antagonistic violence.
We build a space that affirms Black women and is free from sexism, misogyny, and environments in which men are centered.
We disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and “villages” that collectively care for one another, especially our children, to the degree that mothers, parents, and children are comfortable.
We foster a queer‐affirming network. When we gather, we do so with the intention of freeing ourselves from the tight grip of heteronormative thinking, or rather, the belief that all in the world are heterosexual (unless s/he or they disclose otherwise).
Now the BLM street activists may or may not be behind all of them, but we do see they are anti-white violent activists who feel entitled to take from white Americans, forcing everyone to lift their fist for Black Lives Matter, and are demanding the end of police departments.
Charlie Kirk put out a Tweet featuring a video clip of The Black Lives Matter leader from Utah, who made it to Washington DC for a rally and march on Friday.
(Rand Paul said they were funded and sent here from out of state!)
During his time with the microphone, the Utah leader of Black Lives Matter John Sullivan called on BLM to “rip Trump from the White House!”
He called for a “Revolution!”
That’s what they want.
That’s where this ends.
BLM will be able to grow as long as our culture tolerates it.
With less than 13 percent of the population and with the most annual abortions per capita, they will either be allowed to terrorize communities or if different leaders take over, or they can connect with church leaders and others who can work things out peaceably and locally.

Please take a moment to consider this. Now, more than ever, people are reading Geller Report for news they won’t get anywhere else. But advertising revenues have all but disappeared. Google Adsense is the online advertising monopoly and they have banned us. Social media giants like Facebook and Twitter have blocked and shadow-banned our accounts. But we won’t put up a paywall. Because never has the free world needed independent journalism more.
Everyone who reads our reporting knows the Geller Report covers the news the media won’t. We cannot do our ground-breaking report without your support. We must continue to report on the global jihad and the left’s war on freedom. Our readers’ contributions make that possible.
Geller Report’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe our work is critical in the fight for freedom and because it is your fight, too.
Make a monthly commitment to support The Geller Report – choose the option that suits you best.
