A ‘Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Summer Festival’ hosted by the U.S. Military featured “hyper-sexualized” performances by drag queens along with bouncy castles and face painting in a bid to encourage children to attend.
The event took place at the US military’s Joint Base Langley-Eustis (JBLE) this past weekend and was promoted by organizers as a “kid-friendly” get together.
The festival included a number of guest speakers and performances, including a drag show by Joshua Kelley aka “Harpy Daniels – The Navy Drag Queen,” reportedAmerican Military News.
“Organizers encouraged children to attend the festival, advertising that there would be “bouncy houses and face painting for the children.”
Colonel Gregory Beaulieu, commander of the 633d Air Base Wing at JBLE, approved the event and a base spokesman confirmed to the Daily Wire that military resources (taxpayer funded) were used to stage the festival.
Ahmad Alderzi (AA): Al-Assad’s visit to Aleppo took place in highly grave and complicated international and territorial circumstances for Syria. It was intended to carry a set of local, territorial, and international messages. Locally, it was intended to imply the return of the pre-war policies, in which Aleppo constituted a central concern for the president, Al-Assad, that made it claim its ordinary position as the most important economic city in Syria, and that the aftermath of the war policies, that prevented Aleppo and its industrial men from reclaiming their positions have come to an end. It also denoted that the next phase will witness a dramatic change concerning how to deal with the doomed city and that suitable circumstances and conditions for this return will be achieved, which made the people of Aleppo grasp that message and rush, as they are full of hope, to receive him.
Territorially, the message to Erdogan’s Turkey, which is still working on taking over Aleppo again, is clear; any new attempt to reoccupy Aleppo should witness a different way of military dealing, based on the positions of the Russian and Iranian allies, who firmly stood together with it against any new Turkish military movement.
Internationally, the sent message to the United States and the European Union, is that Syria’s position towards them will not change and that the Aleppo region, through which the Arab gas pipeline was supposed to pass in 2010, will not let the Israeli gas pipeline pass through it as well…
The political left as a movement has proven to be made up of some of the worst people imaginable – The kind of people that thirst for destruction and take joy in the oppression of others. They might think they are reveling in a form of anarchy, but they are actually the opposite: They are chaos creators, but only as a means to gain total control.
However, while leftists make my skin crawl with their pungent scent of evil, there is one group of people that is even more annoying, and that’s the fence sitters and fake moderates.
Though these people will never admit it, there are times when social conflict arises and one side is completely right while the other side is completely wrong. Fake moderates pretend as if there are merits to the side that is wrong even when there are none because they want to appear as though they are “wise.” The truth is they don’t have the guts to take a stand one way or the other, and so they act as if neither side is correct, or that both sides are partially right.
Meaning, the side of destruction is given license to continue their pillaging because, hey, we don’t want to seem like we are discriminating or biased, right?…
A United States Congressman has demanded that the Capitol Police release tapes from January 6th over “demonstrably false” allegations
Representative Rodney Davis (R-IL.) is demanding that Capitol Police release the footage from January 5th, 2021 over “demonstrably false” claims by the Jan. 6th panel against Republican Congressman Barry Loudermilk (GA.)
The panel accused Representative Loudermilk of leading “reconnaissance tours” at the Capitol on January 5th, 2021 in preparation for the protests the following day.
Representative Davis is standing up against the bogus claims for his fellow Congressmen.
This charge, Davis said, “is demonstrably false. As you are aware, [Administration] Committee Minority staff have reviewed all footage in question and have confirmed no ‘reconnaissance tours’ occurred.”
Davis also foresaw and rejected claims that the tapes he requested would pose a security risk if released to the public, noting that the same tapes have already been made public in some capacity.
“Any argument that this footage represents sensitive ‘security information’ was destroyed once the Board provided copies to Democrat impeachment managers for public dissemination or it otherwise became available to the public,” Davis wrote.
Davis concludes by stating that if the board refuses to release the footage, he will exercise his authority under 2 U.S.C. $ 1979 to release the footage himself.
Loudermilk is one of many congressmen to have been smeared by the January 6th panel and or the liberal media as “insurrectionists” for their support of President Donald Trump or for their decrying of the stolen election.
Rep. Davis is convinced that releasing the footage for the public to see would clear Loudermilk, who himself stated that he only met with a constituent family “with young children” at the House Office Building on January 5th.
January 6th has become the rally call against all patriots among radical left Democrats and RINOs, as they continue to persecute anyone they perceive as a political threat using bogus claims of insurrection.
erupted in Jerusalem on Friday during the funeral of Shireen Abu Akleh,
a veteran Palestinian journalist who had worked at Al Jazeera for more
than two decades. The reporter was killed earlier this week under
unclear circumstances during an Israeli military raid in the West Bank.
Israeli police blamed the violence on Palestinian “rioters” who allegedly pelted the hospital compound from which the funeral procession began with stones. Policemen “were forced to act,” Tel Aviv insisted, with security forces deploying crowd control measures to disperse the “rioters.”
from the scene shows Israeli police charging the funeral procession and
beating Palestinians with batons. People carrying the reporter’s coffin
were apparently targeted as well, nearly dropping the casket on the
ground. At least 10 Palestinians were injured in the violence.
Akleh was killed on Wednesday during a military raid on the city of
Jenin in the northern part of the West Bank. The Palestinian authorities
were quick to blame the Israeli forces for her death, claiming the
51-year-old journalist was shot in her head. Another Palestinian
journalist, Ali Samoudi, was reportedly wounded in the back during the
deadly raid on the city. He was hospitalized in stable condition.
Al Jazeera, a state-owned Qatari network, has strongly condemned the killing of the reporter, branding it a “heinous crime” and pinning the blame on Israel for her death.
“We hold the Israeli government and the occupation forces responsible for the killing of the late colleague Shireen,” the network said in a statement, urging an independent and transparent investigation.
Israel has expressed its readiness to conduct a joint probe into the
incident with the Palestinian authorities, it demanded they surrender
the bullet that mortally wounded Abu Akleh. The Palestinian Authority,
however, has rejected the initiative.
On Friday, the Israeli
military released an interim report on the incident. The report,
however, lacked any conclusions, merely stating it was impossible to
determine whether the fatal bullet was fired by Israeli troops or some
Specific Steps For True Genocide Recognition Equality: DEFINITIVE WORK. USHMM. Aharon
How Do We Remember the Armenian Genocide and the Holocaust, by Eldad Ben Aharon. 2020. PRIF Report 6/20, Frankfurt
Victim Competition, Genocide Recognition Inequality, and the Only Way To Overcome Holocaust Supremacism
This work, focusing on the Armenian Genocide, provides valuable lessons. It shows how non-Jewish genocides can try to be heard in our Holocaust-saturated world.
Throughout this work, Aharon overemphasizes the role of Turkey in preventing greater appreciation of the Armenian Genocide. In actuality, Israel has a deeply-rooted antipathy towards giving equal credit to non-Jewish genocides. For a frank admission of this fact, see:
CONFRONTING THE REALITY OF GENOCIDE-RECOGNITION INEQUALITY
Eldad Ben Aharon gets right to the point, “Over the last forty years, thememorialization of the Holocausthas becomea distinct aspect of Western culture, encompassing reparations, museums, memorials and documentaries, and even legislation criminalizing its denial. Education about the Holocaust, and its continued memorialization is led by, among others, powerful transnational organizations such as The International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA), and by national research institutions such as Yad Vashem in Jerusalem and the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum (USHMM).However, there is no comparable culture of memorialization of the Armenian genocide.” (p. 1. Emphasis added).
Ben Aharon writes, “For example, since the 1980s, parliaments in Israel, the Netherlands and Germany have tended to see the relationship between Holocaust memory and the Armenian genocide as a ‘zero-sum game’: in other words, the more the Armenian genocide is recognized, the less ‘unique’ the Holocaust will become.” (p. 18).
Notice the fact that the European Parliaments do not care if the Holocaust infringes on the Armenian genocide: Their only concern is that the Armenian genocide (and all other non-Jewish genocides) may infringe upon the presumed specialness of the Holocaust!
The author then brings up Michael Rothberg (pp. 19-20) and his so-called“multidirectional memory”as a means of ending victimhood competition. It does no such thing: It merely pretends that the zero-sum game does not exist, and creates a disguise for continued Holocaust supremacy. See the link.
NOT ONLY THE JEWS’ HOLOCAUST HAS THE INFERRED PROPERTY OF PREVENTING FUTURE GENOCIDES
A canned rationalization for emphasizing the Holocaust is that it is necessary to prevent a repetition of genocides, to “fight extremism”, to “promote tolerance”, etc. If so, this is equally true of the teaching ofallgenocides. Eldad Ben Aharon comments, “…recognition of the Armenian genocide could also help to reduce competition among victims’ groups, specifically the assertion that the Holocaust is ‘unique’ in human history, and to underpin the universal lesson of the Holocaust by affirming protection of minority rights.” (p. 2).
What exactly is a “minority”? Ironically, Holocaust supremacism infringes upon all the non-Jewish minorities. Aren’t the Armenians a minority? Frankly speaking, aren’t the Poles also a minority–at less than 1% of the world’s population?
President Jimmy Carter got a report from the Presidential Commission on the Holocaust, and this led to the construction of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum right in the U. S. capital. The author thus evaluates the report:
“The report issued by the commission was greatly influenced by the concept of the uniqueness of the Holocaust. This led to recommendations for special days of remembrance for the Jewish victims of the Holocaust, a dedicated education program, and the establishment of the USHMM as a national memorial.” (p. 7).
Needless to say, there was no Presidential Commission for any other genocide. And if, as Ben Aharon suggests, we are moving away from the “uniqueness of the Holocaust” (in favor of the “Holocaust unprecedented” vague rhetorical construct: p. 10), it is clear that the USHMM was built on false pretenses. So shouldn’t all the more the USHMM be torn down, or transformed into a museum of all genocides (on an equal footing with each other)?
LIP SERVICE TO NON-JEWISH GENOCIDES DOES NOT REMEDIATE HOLOCAUST SUPREMACY, MUCH LESS DO JUSTICE TO NON-JEWISH GENOCIDES!
We often hear the line that the over-attention to the Jews’ Holocaust is not a problem because, after all, Holocaust museums usually mention other genocides, and the non-Jewish genocides (occasionally) make an appearance in the American classroom. And of course American students can always learn about non-Jewish genocides on their own time (assuming that they ever will). This is far, far from genocide-recognition equality.
Even if the Armenian genocide was everywhere recognized as a bona fide genocide this, by itself, would not redress the grotesque imbalance of the memories of different genocides. Aharon shows the many steps that would need to be taken in order to make theArmenian genocide equal to the Holocaust, and the same steps would have to be completed by all other non-Jewish genocides:
“Parliamentary recognition of the Armenian genocide could also be critically important to what next steps could follow becausethere is a ‘spectrum of acts’ of recognition. This concept should also be clarified: on that spectrum, the above recognition is the first step. But it could be extended at a later period to further action and measures. For example establishing a special commission of experts as with the ‘Presidential Commission on the Holocaust’ instituted by President Carter. This future commission could possibly recommend that the country hold official commemoration days, build local memorials and museums and set up educational programs. Moving further along the spectrum, the Armenian genocide could be included in national curricula which, after implementing the above practices, could be more easily grasped and assimilated by educators and minorities as well as immigrant communities. All in all, the measures that go beyond symbolic recognition, however, are quite advanced steps which could take some time (years) and come at a later time or not at all.” (p. 21. Emphasis added).
Will all or most of this ever happen? Not very likely, certainly not as long as the Holocaust sits on the throne.
It was an absolutely wild Friday in Washington, D.C. Earlier,as Matt covered, D.C. police responded to an active shooter in our nation’s capital, close to several embassies. Now, as Fox News’ Chad Pergram revealed in a video tweet from Friday night, a man has been taken away from the U.S. Supreme Court in a helicopter for medical attention, after he tried to light himself on fire.
AFox News reportfrom Pergram and Louis Casiano did not include a reason why the man tried to do such a thing. “The condition of Friday’s patient was not disclosed. Fox News has reached out to the Supreme Court Police,” the report also mentioned.
