A student who said Abertay University investigated her for saying that women have vaginas and are not as strong as men has been cleared of wrongdoing.

29-year-old Lisa Keogh, who was studying law at the Scottish university, said she was subjected to a “modern day witch hunt” for arguing that biologically male transwomen should not be allowed to compete against natural-born women in athletic contests due to males’ strength advantage over the fairer sex, and was supported in her defence by Joanna Cherry, an MP for the left-separatist Scottish National Party (SNP)…

If the US Military are taught that their country is awful and racist, and needs dismantling, why should they lay down their lives to defend it? | The Wentworth Report

https://wentworthreport.com/2021/06/02/if-the-us-military-are-taught-that-their-country-is-awful-and-racist-and-needs-dismantling-why-should-they-lay-down-their-lives-to-defend-it/

If the US Military are taught that their country is awful and racist, and needs dismantling, why should they lay down their lives to defend it? By Bruce Bawer.

Last month, Lt. Col. Matthew Lohmeier, the commander of a Colorado-based Space Force squadron, published a book entitled Irresistible Revolution: Marxism’s Goal of Conquest & the Unmaking of the American Military.

On May 7, podcaster L. Todd Wood posted an interview with Lohmeier about the book. … A week to the day after the interview was posted, Lohmeier’s superiors abruptly relieved him of his command. …

Much of Lohmeier’s book consists of anecdotes about his encounters with the Marxist bilge now being endorsed by the Department of Defense in the name of “diversity and inclusion.”

For example, last year, after the death of George Floyd, Lohmeier and other men and women stationed at his base were shown two videos. One of them depicted American history as, in the words of its director, “400 years of white supremacy.” It portrayed the Constitution as oppressive and stated that all whites are racists, whether they know it or not. The other video described America as a “system of oppression,” accused Donald Trump of fueling “systematic racism,” presented Obama and the Clintons as anti-racist heroes, and promoted ideas about America that, in Lohmeier’s view, seemed intended “to justify…violent riots.” …

To feed members of the military this kind of propaganda is to plunge them into utter cognitive dissonance — into Orwellian Doublethink. If you’re going to promote such ideas — which paint America as a racist republic that shouldn’t be defended but overthrown — why have a military at all, unless you’re planning to use it to stage a Communist revolution?

Participating in an on-base discussion group, Lohmeier had to read the book So You Want to Talk about Race by Ijeoma Oluo, which “teaches that the United States is ‘a white supremacist society’ that must be ‘dismantled piece by piece,’” …

All this, mind you, was going on during Donald Trump’s presidency. When Trump got wind of it, he issued an Executive Order requiring that the Department of Defense “immediately suspend diversity and inclusion training.” Yet military leaders, ignoring the order, continued to abet the spreading of these ideas. Did they get in trouble for disobeying the president? Of course not. Only those who agreed with their commander-in-chief were in danger of punishment — and Lohmeier knew it. …

He tells of white officers who’ve left the military because they’re sick of being told that “they are racists solely based on the color of their skin.”

He mentions a “non-white female” officer who quit because she felt valued not for “her work ethic and the quality of her work” but for “her ethnicity and sex.”

He describes high-school students who are loath to join the services because “they are unsure what their country stands for anymore.”

And he cites black West Point cadets who are unsure about pursuing an Army career because, having bought the Marxist line, they’re “conflicted about swearing an oath to defend a white supremacist country.”

Lohmeier personally knows an officer who’s tweeted that America’s systemic race problem won’t end until “we burn the system to the ground.” Did he get in trouble? Certainly not. …

Meanwhile, Lohmeier is being roundly trashed all over the place by his moral and intellectual inferiors, who are flinging the usual lies. The host of one left-wing podcast summed up Lohmeier’s complaint by sneering that he’s simply “mad [that] black women fly planes,” while her co-host assured viewers that “diversity and inclusion” training amounts to little more than telling white people not to “touch black women’s hair.”

If woke is so terrific, why does it need to be protected by so much lying and cancellation of its critics? And compulsory indoctrination?

To distract from Gaza slaughter, Israel lobby manufactures antisemitism freakout, by Max Blumenthal | STRAIGHT LINE LOGIC

https://straightlinelogic.com/2021/05/27/to-distract-from-gaza-slaughter-israel-lobby-manufactures-antisemitism-freakout-by-max-blumenthal/

Israel and its US lobby certainly know how to shape propaganda narratives. From Max Blumenthal at thegrayzone.com:

With deceptively edited videos and dubious allegations, the Israel lobby has manufactured an antisemitism epidemic to turn the media’s gaze away from dead children in Gaza.

Following an 11-day assault on the Gaza Strip in which the Israeli army killed over 220 people, including more than 65 children, and days of videotaped rampages of Jewish extremist mobs against Palestinian people and property inside Israeli cities, Israel lobbyists in the US and Canada have launched a carefully coordinated public relations campaign to deflect outrage.

Having failed to successfully defend massacres of entire families in their homes and the deliberate demolition of civilian residential towers and media offices in Gaza City, the US Israel lobby and the Israeli government it advocates for have manufactured an epidemic of antisemitic violence with the goal of portraying American Jewry as the true victim of the crisis.

Led by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), Israel lobbyists have portrayed a series of street scuffles between supporters of Palestine and pro-Israel activists as anti-Jewish pogroms. In nearly every case, no evidence exists to substantiate claims that Jews were targeted as Jews for violent assault. There is ample proof of deception, however, as video and photographic evidence reveals pro-Israel elements provoking demonstrators, initiating violence and falsifying or embellishing their testimonies.

Since the Israeli government and Palestinian political factions signed a ceasefire, the media has provided Israel lobbyists with an uncritical platform to baselessly accuse Palestine solidarity activists of triggering a wave of antisemitic violence, and even claim without a shred of evidence that Jews are being hunted in their homes.

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn: He Would be Canceled in Today’s America, by John Wear | STRAIGHT LINE LOGIC

https://straightlinelogic.com/2021/05/27/aleksandr-solzhenitsyn-he-would-be-canceled-in-todays-america-by-john-wear/

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn is one of the giants of the twentieth century. From John Wear at unz.com:

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn in February 1974. Credit: Wikimedia Commons.

Aleksandr Isayevich Solzhenitsyn (1918-2008) was one of the greatest literary and political figures of the 20th Century. For the first 25 years of his life, Solzhenitsyn was an ardent supporter of Vladimir Lenin’s Soviet Revolution. In fact, by 1938 Solzhenitsyn’s enthusiasm for Communism had grown to the point of obsession. As a youth, Solzhenitsyn even declared, “I would gladly give my life for Lenin.”[1]

This article documents how Solzhenitsyn eventually became an outspoken critic of Soviet Communism, as well as his conclusion that Jews were primarily responsible for the Bolshevik Revolution.

Early Years

Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn was born into an environment of chaos and suffering that rivaled anything he experienced in his later life. His young father died six months before his birth in excruciating pain from wounds received in a hunting accident. His grief-stricken mother rejoined her family in a nearby summer resort, only to find herself in the middle of a vicious battle then raging between Reds and Whites in Russia’s Civil War. Lenin and his band of Bolsheviks were fighting ferociously to consolidate their power, and the whole of Russia was awash in blood.[2]

How To Sabotage The Pro-Palestine Movement, by Caitlin Johnstone | STRAIGHT LINE LOGIC

https://straightlinelogic.com/2021/05/27/how-to-sabotage-the-pro-palestine-movement-by-caitlin-johnstone/

Is the antisemitism issue being used to divert attention from the plight of the Palestinians? From Caitlin Johnstone at caitlinjohnstone.com:

The US-centralized power alliance is losing control of the Palestine narrative as awareness continues to spread of the injustice of Israeli apartheid, and it’s one of the most interesting things happening in the narrative matrix today.

It’s very encouraging to see an entirely grassroots activist campaign get this far off the ground, where ordinary people online and in demonstrations around the world overpower an official establishment narrative by sheer numbers and force of will until the imperial media are forced to acknowledge the legitimacy of their position. Rather than waiting for the corporate media to begin covering the plight of the Palestinians in a just manner, the people simply seized control of the narrative by speaking the truth with their own voices and becoming the dominant perspective on the matter, forcing everyone else to play catch-up.

And now we see Ireland passing a parliamentary motion condemning the “de facto annexation” of Palestinian land. After the oligarchic empire expended all that effort sabotaging Jeremy Corbyn’s campaign in the UK to keep Palestinian rights from going mainstream in the western world, Israel’s own actions have sent them mainstream anyway.

This loss of narrative control is a problem for Israel, whose nature is premised upon keeping Palestinians from attaining equality which would effectively end the Jewish ethnostate. This in turn is a problem for the empire, who needs to keep the Middle East fractured, imbalanced, and as far under its control as possible so long as human civilization is dependent on fossil fuels; if it hadn’t done that the region could have seen the rise of its own global superpower decades ago, or fallen into alignment with some other power not aligned with Washington and London. The nuclear-armed military force of Israel has consistently played a key role in bashing Middle Eastern affairs into alignment with imperial interests; as Joe Biden once said, “Were there not an Israel, the United States of America would have to invent an Israel to protect her interests in the region.”

Facebook Ends Ban on Posts Asserting Covid-19 Was Man-Made – Nwo Report

Social media freaks policy shift reflects a deepening debate over the origins of the virus first identified in Wuhan, China

Source: Newley Purnell

Facebook has ended its ban on posts asserting Covid-19 was man-made or manufactured, a policy shift that reflects a deepening debate over the origins of the pandemic that was first identified in Wuhan, China, almost 18 months ago. The Wall Street Journal reported Sunday that three researchers from China’s Wuhan Institute of Virology became sick enough in November 2019 that they sought hospital care, according to a previously undisclosed U.S. intelligence report.

“In light of ongoing investigations into the origin of COVID-19 and in consultation with public health experts, we will no longer remove the claim that COVID-19 is man-made or manufactured from our apps,” Facebook said in a statement on its website Wednesday. President Biden on Wednesday ordered a U.S. intelligence inquiry into the origins of the virus. The White House has come under pressure to conduct its own investigation after China told the World Health Organization that it considered Beijing’s part of the investigation complete, calling for efforts to trace the virus’s origins to shift into other countries.

Earlier this month a group of 18 prominent scientists called for a deeper investigation into the circumstances in which the virus emerged, including the possibility that a laboratory accident released it. China has repeatedly denied that the virus escaped from one of its labs and accused the U.S. of hyping the lab-leak theory. On Sunday, China’s foreign ministry cited a WHO-led team’s conclusion, after a visit to the Wuhan Institute of Virology in February, that a lab leak was extremely unlikely.

Facebook in February began the ban on claims the virus was man-made or manufactured as part of a list of misleading health claims that aren’t allowed. “We’re continuing to work with health experts to keep pace with the evolving nature of the pandemic and regularly update our policies as new facts and trends emerge,” Facebook said in its statement Wednesday.
