The Montgomery County Republican Party published the following piece from The MoCo Conservative. Read the full text below:
“There is a clear lack of diversity of thought in the D.C. Metro Area. The advent of technology has made the cancel culture mob even more vengeful as Democrat operatives order their minions and tech soldiers to dig through social media accounts of suspected free thinkers and conservatives.
The sole intent of these operatives is to destroy livelihoods and eviscerate reputations in supposedly “tolerant” D.C.-area communities led by the Democrat majority.
So, how can everyday citizens fight back? Named after and located in its namesake (Montgomery County, MD) I created The MoCo Conservative blog to solve a problem that many conservatives and independents are facing: their voices and influence have been diminished by the “woke mob” and they remain silent for fear of retaliation. The goal of my blog is to provide a “safe” space for those same targeted individuals to express their thoughts, concerns, and opinions anonymously (or named, should they choose that path). I only have two requirements (for now): the contributors must live in Maryland, Virginia, or Washington, D.C. and it must be original content. All but one of the blog’s commentaries have come from anonymous and named contributors and whistleblowers; I’ll let you figure out which one came from me.
I must be doing something right (pun intended): established in August 2020, my blog and new podcast have reached almost 100,000 people in the Beltway through social media, including over 30,000 individual blog views. My blog is a social and technological experiment in exercising the First Amendment of the Constitution as a private citizen, with no allegiances or affiliations except to this country. I am an independent, conservative, free thinker who sees that the Republic as I know it is being attacked by those put in positions of authority by the ignorant and intolerant liberal majority.
Debate is not illegal. Listening to opposing viewpoints is not illegal. Yet, the mainstream propaganda networks effortlessly manipulate public perception to make it so that people who question the narrative can be justifyingly and publicly shamed, ridiculed, and targeted for thinking differently. I refuse to bow down to the technocracy and cancel culture, the same way that I refuse to tolerate intolerance. I encourage you to do the same.”
Mekkah X Mohammed is a Muslim Republican Conservative who ran for Baltimore City Council District 10 in 2020.
I have analyzed the subject matter of which this letter pertains for many months now. As stated by Malcolm X in his letter from Mecca: “[T]he color-blindness of the Muslim world’s religious society and the color-blindness of the Muslim world’s human society,” not only influenced the change in Malcolm X’s mindset towards white people while in Mecca, but also influenced my mindset towards the Republican Party after seeing the color-blindness in the GOP and the color-blindness in conservatism.
I attended the Million MAGA March on November 14, 2020 in our nation’s capital, in a rally protesting the injustice of a rigged election and the denial of the people’s right to vote for whom they choose. Like Malcolm X was blessed by Allah to see the true meaning of Islam in Mecca, I was blessed by Allah to see the true meaning of patriotism in Washington, D.C.
As Malcolm X understood America’s racial dilemma in the 1960’s, I understand America’s political dilemma in 2021.
While in Washington, D.C., where the fifteenth amendment was passed, I felt a sense of pride, not only as an American (being born in America) but as a patriot- as Fredrick Douglas later in his life viewed himself as a citizen. I witnessed the presence of fellow patriots from all nationalities, backgrounds, and walks of life; we were there to fight for the integrity of this election and future elections, as well as for President Trump.
Many Americans need to understand true patriotism today, as many Americans needed to understand true Islam in the 1960’s and need to understand true Islam in the present day. Patriotism and Islam both create brotherhood, unity, and loyalty to one’s country and the belief in God/ Allah.
As we stood together as patriots, there wasn’t any focus on economic, religious, educational, racial, or social status, but the focus was on our rights as citizens:
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed…”
Now we know Malcolm X said “By Any Means Necessary,” which brings me to my next point. The United States witnessed many riots stemming from violence, from the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., to Rodney King, and most notably George Floyd.
As Dr. King said in the video above, riots are the result of the people’s voices not being heard. Now, in 2021, rioting is no longer a form of the people’s voices not being heard due to racism alone, but is used as an excuse by Marxists to steal and plunder. With the green light given by some politicians on the left, Marxists have become the most dangerous people in America today. They too are not restrained by anything, having no moral concept, religion, civic responsibility…nothing!
And just like the ghetto hustler back in the 1960’s, Marxists prey upon others and are ready for action at any cost to life or property. They have made up their minds not to respect anything or anybody, especially if anyone disagrees with them!
Sixty years later history has repeated itself; gone are the days of Jim Crow. Yet, social injustices on our first amendment rights and right to peacefully protest without being ostracized – like the civil rights protestors of the 1960’s – are in full swing. Now, cancel culture is slowly stripping away our first, second, and fifteenth amendment rights, turning our country into a socialist society.
This letter is to let you know how very disappointed I am in how you are representing me and the other citizens of our Congressional District 8. Specifically, I want to tell you how very unfair I find your one-on-one interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper.
Mr. Tapper asked you, “[w]hy go through the impeachment process?” Your blaming [of President] Donald Trump for the violence of a mob who stormed the Capitol on January 6 was not only appalling, it has also now been proven to be factually incorrect. But I suspect you already know that.
It has been reported that the FBI and the Capitol Police had information of premeditated plans of violence at the Capitol Building at least a day before January 6. How then could President Trump have caused the violence which had already been set in motion before his speech had even been given? There are more important matters Congress should be working on than to impeach Donald Trump. You are simply demonstrating hate.
I was one of the 99% of Trump supporters in D.C. on January 6 who were there to peacefully support the President in a law-abiding way. We were peaceful protestors who exercised our 1st Amendment rights of freedom of assembly and speech. None of us were violent nor were we incited to be violent. [President] Donald Trump did not incite me or my friends. We were practicing our Constitutional rights and were there to celebrate President Trump’s accomplishments.
The inflammatory rhetoric of the Left caused the January 6 mob to storm the Capitol. It is well past time for Democrats and the mainstream media to take responsibility for dividing Americans and attempting to humiliate, silence, get fired from jobs – and perhaps most menacingly of all, talk about “reeducation camps” – for those who support Donald Trump, like me and others who have conservative views. It’s time for careful reflection and change on all sides. You are failing to do this with your impeachment process.
Please make sure you and all the other members of Congress separate the violent offenders from the peaceful American people at a rally. Conservatives should be treated exactly the same as those who attended the BLM rallies throughout 2020.
We demand that the double standards and censorship stop. We demand that the threats to our personal safety and job security stop.
How can our country heal, if you make such poor decisions for the citizens you represent?

Those who have studied Hitler’s rise to power and the extermination of six million Jews should see the parallels to the events currently taking place in America today.
Step 1: Create A Villain
One of Hitler’s strategies was his plan to create nationalistic pride and a superior race. To support this goal, he needed to create a villain; he found his villain in the Jewish race. Between November 9th and 10th, 1938 the Nazis carried out a mission against the Jews while authorities looked on without intervention. This night became known as Kristallnacht, or “Night of Broken Glass”; on this night, Jewish homes, hospitals, and schools were ransacked as paramilitary and civilians alike attacked and demolished 267 synagogues and over 7,000 Jewish businesses. As a result 30,000 Jewish men were arrested and incarcerated in concentration camps. The pretext for these attacks was the assassination of German diplomat Ernst vom Rath by a 17 year-old German-born Polish Jew living in Paris.
Step 2: Censorship
A second strategy used by Hitler was censorship. Censorship within the Nazi party included control of mass communication, which encompassed paper, literature, radio, and film. The Reich ministry of propaganda produced their own literature solely devoted to Nazi ideals; this literature was also very anti-Semitic.
Hitler knew if he isolated people and created his own narrative, he could control his opposition. He used a strategy called Gaslighting. Those who spoke out against Hitler and his policies faced intimidation and threats from the Gestapo or imprisonment and in some cases execution. All political parties had been banned. Economic opposition was eliminated as trade unions had been banned. Sadly, many Germans genuinely believed that the Nazi’s were improving Germany.
Step 3: Control The Youth
A third strategy was to control the minds of Germany’s youth, and he did this through the Hitler Youth movement. Hitler’s goal was to control the activities and teachings in classrooms and make them loyal to him. Those within the youth movement were given positions of responsibility and rewarded for their loyalty, and curriculum was biased and supportive of the Nazi narrative.
Step 4: Eliminate Opposition
A fourth strategy was to eliminate the opposition. On June 30, 1934 Hitler authorized a purge of Nazi leaders he feared were too powerful. This night became known the “Night of the Long Knives.” Hitler ordered his elite SS guard to murder hundreds that night who opposed him.
Who Was Dietrich Bonhoeffer?
In Germany a pastor/theologian named Dietrich Bonhoeffer wanted the Church to speak out against the war and the atrocities that were taking place in Germany. Yet many church leaders were frightened of the consequences. In 1940, Dietrich was forbidden by the Reich to speak out; he was further required to report regularly to the secret police. Dietrich was deeply distressed that the whole world was falling apart in an orgy of suffering and pain while the Church was strangely impotent, even unconcerned to take a stand.
On September 19, 1941 a decree was issued that required all German Jews to wear a yellow star attached to their clothing. In October 1941, the first gas chambers were installed at Auschwitz. Dietrich felt the Church’s impotence was because of their lack of moral courage. Dietrich – even though he was forbidden to speak – continued to do so in opposition to German atrocities. Norway fell to Germany early in the war, but unlike the pastors in Germany, Norwegian pastors spoke out in opposition. This brought about many arrests, though Norway’s pastors continued strong in their resistance.
Dietrich was later detained and imprisoned for his resistance. In prison, Dietrich declared if the government demanded that Christians sign away their submission to Christ in order to serve the state, then Christians had a responsibility to resist that Government absolutely. Under a biblical view, such a government was a false one in that it was not operating within the sphere God intended. Dietrich was eventually hanged for treason on April 9, 1945 in a concentration camp just two weeks before U.S. soldiers liberated the camp.
Bonhoeffer showed that it is possible to grow in faith through any circumstance, and to take a stand in any situation or dilemma. He was willing to pay the price for his beliefs. I ask American pastors: Are you willing to do the same, or have you been rendered impotent by fear and intimidation? It’s time for the Church to stand up and speak out for what’s right or we will lose the rights given to us by the patriots who lived and died for the freedoms we enjoy today.
So now some liberals are beginning to talk of “cleansing” Trump followers. “Cleansing” like the Nazis “cleansed” the Jews. That kind of “cleansing?”
That kind of “cleansing” resulted in the murder of millions. Again, that kind of “cleansing?”
Is this what Biden promised when he recently spoke of healing the nation and bringing us all together? Is that before or after the “cleansing?” Just checking so I’ll know where I am in line.
Should all us “Trumpers” be required to wear yellow stars with bold “T” in the middle to identify us? Will you come and strip all of our possessions like the Nazis did? Will you separate us from our families? Will you try to herd us onto cattle rail cars in the middle of the night? Will you then ship us off to be gassed because of our beliefs?
Can someone explain also why this person acting like a Nazi, Rick Klein, still has a public voice on ABC News or anywhere else for that matter? Or do the liberal elite plan to just give him a pass, accept his alibi, and just tell him to lay low for a few months?
Where is the outrage from the Left had a Republican had made a similar statement? Oh that’s right: liberals always get a pass from their associates and the media. Republicans would get hung out to dry, chased from the public square, forced into hiding and assailed from any friends we had.
This is how actual civil wars get started. Perhaps that’s their plan…

Topics discussed on today’s podcast include:
Organizing a 1776-era militia is not feasible; what options do we have?
Will the GOP need to completely dissolve in order to herald in a new political party, ready to embrace all freedom-loving patriots?
What does the future hold for the Constitutional Republic of the United States of America?
The MoCo Conservative has received information from Ashley Mouktafi, co-owner of Clarksburg Tavern LLC, who believes she is the target of retaliatory measures from the Montgomery County Health and Human Services Department for filing a lawsuit to keep her business afloat and offer jobs to help end systemic discrimination the County is subjugating minority residents to experience during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Examples of the alleged intimidation tactics reported by the owners within the last week include:
The appearance of a Montgomery County government-owned vehicle and a MCPD cruiser in the dining establishment’s back parking lot for about 35 minutes. The occupants of both cars never came out of their vehicles while parking on private property. Mouktafi believes that this incident was an intimidation tactic to arouse fear and anxiety in her, Clarksburg Tavern staff, and patrons of the dining establishment.
The Licensure and Regulatory Division of the Montgomery County Health and Human Services Department sending an inspection report citing a non-existent violation claiming that owners and immediate family are not able to “sit and eat or drink” on premises (no such law or code exists). Mouktafi claims that the County “wants to fast track our warnings to get to the fines.” As of this article, the Licensure and Regulatory Division of the County Department of Health and Human Services has redacted the report and warning, after failing to acknowledge there is an ongoing lawsuit regarding this very matter in the County’s circuit court system.
A mentally unstable, non-compliant individual (not a customer) aggressively walked into the dining establishment, threw a mask at one of the owners, and called the owner a “murderer.”
The staff took a telephone order for ten entrees and two appetizers that was a no-show. When the call-back number was dialed and connected to the initial caller, the customer had no intention of purchasing the food and subsequently told the owner, “I hope you die of COVID.”
Mouktafi – a single mother of two young, school-age children who co-owns Clarksburg Tavern with her mother, Janice Allen – had this to say about the situation:
As a self-identifying female small business owner and single mother, I have had to work through the institutional patriarchy that is inherent within the business community and hospitality industry. I love and appreciate the diversity of my customers, community, and staff. What I don’t love is being strong-armed by a tyrannical male like County Executive Marc Elrich and being forced to lay off almost all of my employees, who rely on a paycheck to help break through the systemic, socio-economic institutional racism affecting communities in Montgomery County and the country.
Threatening me only exacerbates the problem. These intimidation tactics have caused undue stress to my staff and me, and I plan on taking additional legal action against those entities that are taking retaliatory measures against me.
Community and county-wide problems require community and county-wide solutions from residents, not just bureaucrats who don’t understand what it’s like living from paycheck to paycheck and who have never owned a small business as a single mother. I take my business and the health of my patrons and staff very seriously; it’s time that the local government does the same.
In the year 2020 AD we are faced with the most challenging health issue of our time – the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic. As a nation we have been locked down, let loose, masked up, unmasked, and locked down again and masked up again. We have been subjected to the whims and biases of questionable health officials who have ordered us to set aside our Constitutional freedoms for the greater good – with no Constitutional authority to order us into submission – yet submit we do.
Now, with the specter of a Biden/Harris administration getting closer, we are faced with the reality that defunding our police and releasing murderers, rapists & child molesters from our prisons is becoming a reality. We just have to look at what the new Los Angeles (L.A.) County District Attorney George Gascón stated a few days ago:
Based on what L.A. County District Attorney George Gascón is directing his office to do for the handling of murderers, you can expect that it will be coming soon to a jurisdiction near you.
No more prosecuting the street level drug dealer – “he does it because he is poor.” No more prosecuting the street prostitute – “after all, a girl has got to make a living.”
No cash bail, no death penalty, and no charging juveniles as adults. A lawless society in L.A. County.
Then we have Cancel Culture. Statues commemorating significant historical events on state land and in public parks have already suffered the wrath of Cancel Culture; even memorials that stand on Federal land upon hallowed battlefields places that were deemed to be “off limits” to this wave of history’s destruction have been attacked.
On September 17, 1862, 4,000 Americans died at Antietam; the battle is remembered as the single bloodiest day in U.S. history from both sides. Just this past week we were informed that the statue of Robert E. Lee is to be removed from the battlefield at Antietam.
History is being erased.
But it does not stop here… today the press reported that there is a school in San Francisco that is changing its name from Abraham Lincoln High School because: “he (Lincoln) didn’t show ‘black lives mattered to him.’ “
So, we have seen street and school names changed, so now we must ask just how long it is going to take this movement to convince our socialist democrat Congress to change the name of our Capital city: Washington, D.C. After all, we all know Washington’s history regarding slave ownership, so why should his name adorn the most enduring seat of government ever envisioned by man? Why should his monument stand when others have been removed?
You see, this is a never-ending erosion from within; the decline that will lead to the fall. Much like the Fall of the Roman Empire, it was the decay within that allowed it to become susceptible to the “Barbarians of Europe.” Our “barbarians” come much more neatly packaged in 2020. They are, in fact, the Chinese Communist Party, and our internal decay will be what they rely on to bring the “American Experiment” to its fall.

From a conservative teacher in the Montgomery County, Maryland Public School (MCPS)System.
Conservatism, Education, and Montgomery County Public Schools is a combination that is not welcome. I have seen it firsthand. My hope is through a series of articles, I can share my experiences as a conservative teacher within the MCPS system. I look forward to shedding some light on what is happening within our public school system.
“This is a safe space, right?”
This is what was said by one of my fellow teachers during an interview our school recently conducted.
She proceeded to explain why she felt one particular candidate was not a strong candidate.
No, it was not that this candidate was inexperienced. Her resume showed years of experience in the education field.
No, it was not that this candidate spoke of any educational theory or practice that conflicted with our school’s mission.
No, it was not that this candidate lacked the confidence her role would need in order to interact with our school community.
It was that she was white.
I have sat on several interview panels throughout my teaching career. The typical structure of the interview involves the panel identifying strengths and weaknesses of each candidate immediately after the interview.
“This is a safe space, right?”
Of course, our principal replied that we were in a safe space, allowing the teacher to explain to the panel that her whiteness was a weakness. That, despite the fact that this candidate’s way of life was almost identical to the teacher, she was still weak. You see, the candidate is married to a black man and is the mother of biracial children. The candidate even took the time to explain that she felt her family diversity was a strength of hers. The teacher who brought up this “weakness” also happens to be a white woman who was previously married to a black man and has biracial children.
And, if what she was stating is indeed a weakness, should this teacher even be teaching our children?
If I was shocked by her statement, I cannot remember. What I do remember is becoming irritated by how the rest of the debrief unfolded. My principal, along with others in the panel, praised the teacher for her courage.
At the end of it all, the majority of the panel chose a different candidate. The job was offered to a candidate who maybe did not have as much experience, and may have not had the strongest interview. The job instead was offered to a candidate who was unburdened by the same “weakness” as the other candidate.
From The Editor: Below is a video produced by Act 4 Greater America. Our combined goal is to bring awareness to the dangers of Leftism (under the guise of the current Democrat Party) and how policies endorsed and enacted by county governments, especially in Montgomery County, are socialist in nature and detrimental to the success of our country and our citizenry.
Christianity, Constitution, and Capitalism.
Paraphrased excerpts below (unless quoted):
The combination of the three C’s mentioned above makes the greatness of America, and we must defend these values. China is trying to destroy these core values.
Like the human body, a nation can also succumb to a virus. In this case, the virus of ideology is even more dangerous and can cause even greater destruction. The virus of ideology is leftism/marxism/socialism/communism (however you want to call it, it is the same thing), and it has left a trail of destruction.
Institutions have been infiltrated by this ideology and young people are being indoctrinated by those same people in positions of authority. Handouts and government dependency are going to ruin the economic might of the country. Abortion-on-demand is forcing our faith in God out of our culture; Christians are being persecuted for their faith. Removing prayer from public school and replacing it with questionable material (LGBT++) in its place is also part of that effort to eradicate religion.
The Democrats use word control to control people’s thoughts by using labels and throwing them onto anyone who disagrees with you. It’s exactly what the Communist party used in China.
It wasn’t until 2016 that enough people fed up with these laws against freedom and the P.C. Culture woke up and said, “We’ve got to fight back.” President Donald Trump has kept his promises; he has lowered taxes, reduced government regulation, appointed judges who adhered to the Constitution, and surrounded himself by people of prayer.
When the Democrats couldn’t derail President Trump with their hoaxes and fake news, they adhered to the same playbook of using class and racial strife, and created a lot of chaos. You don’t have to go far outside of the U.S.A. to see what these tactics have caused. American cities, such as Chicago, Minneapolis, and Portland, have turned into ruins because of the failed policies of the Democrats in power.
You must vote for Donald Trump in this election; it is that serious.
FACT: Throughout American politics and mainstream media today, corruption runs rampant.
There are a handful of politicians, like Trey Gowdy, who came in believing in justice and tried to make a difference. He fought with conviction, passion, and always told the truth. Pay attention: Gowdy voluntarily left his seat in the House (which included the role of Chair of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee’s Select Committee on Benghazi) because he, like many of the good ones before him, became disheartened over the ugly truth. Watching Hillary Clinton go unpunished for her direct involvement in the Benghazi Scandal and blatantly lying to the American people and families of the slain… it all became too much.
I look around our Country today and everything is unrecognizable.
We must continue to support young agents of change like Candace Owens.
This woman gets it and no matter what some do in an effort to hurt, scare, and/or intimidate her, Candace comes back swinging, relying only on facts and data.
Never be afraid to stand up and tell the truth… regardless of the consequences.
Who knew there would be consequences for being honest? In any event, the corrupt people who sit in positions of power will one day answer for their crimes. No question about it. They might not answer to you or me but I promise you they understand they’ll be faced with a true day of reckoning, and there is no amount of money that will be able to buy them out of the mess they helped to create.
President Donald J. Trump and Vice President Mike Pence may not be perfect, but they have both been honest and have done their best to do right by the American People. The biggest and only failure I’ve witnessed over the last four years is the utter and complete downfall of American Journalism. The horrific behavior of Mainstream Media toward our President, and quite frankly the gross abuse of their “special privileges,” is horrible to watch.
People like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi need to be removed from office and criminally charged for the fraud, waste, and abuse of American tax dollars. That woman has spent MILLIONS solely on trying to hurt The President of the United States… last I checked, isn’t that considered treason?
I am supporting the Trump/Pence ticket (exactly as I did last election) because in this election they truly are the only choice.
From A Concerned Mother In Montgomery County, Maryland To A Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) High School.
Dear Principal X,
The mandatory re-education this morning in homeroom is appalling. Your school has been very good about telling my sons what racists they are by virtue of being white. I have not complained for these many years because I know that the people who believe this are hateful and vindictive people. They would baselessly brand me a racist and make my children suffer significant consequences.
My husband and I supported the candidacy of Dr. Ben Carson, a national hero. Dr. Carson disagrees with the stance of BLM, et al. We follow Dr. Carson’s lead. He is black and grew up super poor in a very poor, inner city neighborhood. He taught us about the soft racism of low expectations; we will not participate in that because we believe in the ability of black people to make it just like we believe in the ability of any other person to make it in a free country under a system of free enterprise.
We believe those to who think otherwise are racists who cause significant harm to our country, to the cause of true equality, to our communities, and to the black community, in particular.
I read that we will have to prove our son has had his “lesson” if he does not attend this morning’s atrocious lecture. Please understand, you have spent nearly four years now teaching my son how hateful a human being he is, just by the virtue of his skin. His textbooks contained it, his reading assignments were on almost nothing but this topic; you never taught him the other argument or about wonderful men like Dr. Carson, and X understands, viscerally, how much he is hated because of the color of his skin. So do we. That’s enough.
If you want to force my child into proving to you that he has adopted the DNC platform, heart and soul, we will take it public and ask the court to rule on it.

Throughout history mankind has been in rebellion against God.
Beginning with Adam and Eve and original sin, which is defined as disobedience of God, humans have consistently challenged God’s laws and commandments. Our nature has been to historically rebel against God. In biblical terms this is called sin.
Today, more than any other time in American history, we see the distinct differences in our two political parties. It’s easy to place our two parties into one of two categories, with God or against God. It’s obvious how the Democrat Party has sought to divide our nation using racial, socioeconomic, and religious themes.
This article deals with religious differences. The attacks from Democrats on the religious faith of U.S. Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett show the extreme anti-God feelings that run deep within the Democrat Party. Barrett’s life and beliefs represents everything that the Democrats oppose. Amy Barrett represents what the Bible in Philippians 4:8 calls good, pure, noble, lovely admirable, and true:
“Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.”
Its opposite, as embraced by Democrats, would be defined as evil, hateful, untrue, dishonorable, impure, abominable, and deplorable.
It’s no secret the Democrats seek to remove the phrase “under God” from our national pledge. Nativities are banned in many Democrat-controlled cities and towns. Plaques showing the ten commandments have been removed from many government courthouses. Prayer has been banned in schools.
Teachers are not permitted to mention God. Churches have been closed and attendance limited during the recent China Virus. Churches have been issued huge fines and congregants arrested for violating local laws restricting church attendance and public worship. Abortion clinics are ruled essential and allowed to be open for business while churches are deemed non-essential. The phrase “Merry Christmas” has been replaced with the phrase “Happy Holidays,” while Halloween grows bigger each year. Christians are ridiculed by the Democrat-controlled media, and those who embrace Judeo-Christian values are scoffed at by Hollywood.
Sadly, life itself has been devalued by the Democrat left. Murder and violence in the streets is no longer criticized by them. The killing of millions of unborn babies through abortion is commonly embraced by Democrats. I would go so far as to say the Democrat Party has become the party of Satan.
Spiritual warfare is not a new word. The apostle Paul in the book of Ephesians addresses this issue. In the sixth chapter of Ephesians verse 12 he writes:
“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”
The army of Satan is alive and well in the Democrat Party. Never in my lifetime would I have envisioned this in America. One has to ask themselves: how long will God allow this to continue? If one believes in Biblical prophecy then they would understand that one day God will step in to reclaim the world He created. This is referred to in Revelation as Armageddon.
I believe the spiritual warfare, the battle between good and evil we are experiencing today, is placing us closer to God’s return to reclaim His world and defeat Satan and evil once and for all.
The battle lines are drawn. You must decide which army you embrace. I choose God’s army.
From an anonymous teacher and parent in the Montgomery County, Maryland Public School System (MCPS).
The graphics below are from a PowerPoint presentation provided to teachers in MCPS.
One look at Angel Kyodo Williams’ website and you will understand how important it is to educate yourself about what exactly is being taught to your children, and who is influencing these curriculum decisions.
The slide above makes the assumption it is difficult “to talk about race.” Making wide, generalized assumptions is once again furthering the divide and forcing people to have “conversations” about a problem that does not exist in the majority of the population, and an issue that was exacerbated by former President Obama.
The goal of this slide is to curb free speech, plain and simple. From the slide above, the definition of a “microaggression” could be anything that offends another person. ANYTHING. Best to shut up at this point in the event you appear racist.
Nothing like an MTV video to class this discussion up. Apparently, only White people can cause “microaggressions” by simply breathing air.
This slide comes from tolerance.org. Enjoy reading their entire guide to combating everyday prejudice, bias, and stereotypes. Another reminder to curb free speech and limit actual debates through interruption, “education” a.k.a. indoctrination, and “echo,” which sounds eerily similar to creating an echo chamber of intolerance.
Keep on reading.
Both slides above provide instruction on how to act, how to think, and what to do to prevent an offended person from….what? Lashing out and calling you a racist? Burning your car? Destroying your business? Are we supposed to be tiptoeing through life making sure we don’t offend someone?
This slide is showcasing how misinformation helps to further racial tensions. Note the need to provide “powerful” photographs to emotionally manipulate people into thinking and feeling a certain way. I’d like to know how many Hispanic residents were tested compared to other races, as well as what percentage of that entire population of the suburb is Hispanic. I’d like to know if Black children are so scared of dying, why are they out protesting instead of quarantining themselves? Who told that woman that her ethnicity is a “virus”? Are my questions “offending” you? Unlike the slides’ instructions, I refuse to apologize; guess that makes me a “racist” with “implicit bias.”
Didn’t think you needed to panic during a conversation about race? No problem, because the school system wants you to use this calming video to stop a panic attack before it even happens. This is classic psychological conditioning, folks: repeatedly telling someone that they will need to calm down after having a “courageous conversation about race” when they aren’t having any anxiety issues, will lead them to eventually associate having a panic attack or experience anxiety when discussing this topic.
I encourage all parents to click on the reference links below to get a better idea of where we are headed; if this continues, our children will not be educated to become productive members of society. They will become social justice warriors with no marketable skills, thereby relying more heavily on government handouts to create a comfortable standard of living.
Written by a former educator and a retired teacher of the Montgomery County, Maryland Public School System (MCPS).
What’s really being taught?
As a former educator I have a deep appreciation for education. What’s happening in the Montgomery County School System and systems across our nation is not education- it’s indoctrination. The children of Montgomery County are being programmed to accept the Marxist ideology by teachers whose jobs are at risk if they challenge the system. This is happening under the watchwords: equity, 1619 project, social justice, racism, police brutality, cancel culture, and social reform.
“We want our sons and daughters to know the truth.”
“Our country wasn’t built on cancel culture, speech codes, and crushing conformity; we are not a nation of timid spirits.”
My wife, who is a retired teacher from MCPS, recently contacted several of her conservative friends still teaching in the system. She asked them how the current cancel culture environment is affecting their teaching. Here are some of the responses:
“I was given the book ‘White Fragility’ and was told we’d be discussing it during staff development. We also received an email after the George Floyd incident that expressed the administration’s white guilt we all should feel. It was re-sent at the beginning of the school year. Conservative teachers are frustrated and many are ready to retire.“
“Teachers and para educators are required by the county to view 10 videos redefining race, sexual orientation, and inappropriate words considered politically and socially incorrect. Teachers and paras must adhere to these new standards or risk disciplinary actions or termination. Many of these new guidelines conflict with the moral and ethical values that Judeo-Christian teachers hold.“
“I assisted in a classroom where the teacher had a large picture of president Obama on the wall with the caption under it that read, ‘Greatest President Ever.’ The flag was placed next to the American flag so children were forced to view this every morning as the pledge was recited.”
“I recently posted a clip on my personal Facebook page following the attempted police assassination in Los Angeles that read Police Lives Matter. I was told by the administration that I must remove it or face disciplinary action.“
“As a history teacher I’m expected to teach the narrative, ‘It’s not a black fight but rather a human fight.’ Every teacher in every context is expected to teach something regarding it. It’s also taught in homeroom.”
“I see bias. When the kids go to a source to site examples during an assignment MCPS always uses very liberal news outlets like CNN, New York Times, Vox, etc.“
Another testimonial we got was from a Montgomery County police officer who shared that the police had been called because a teacher was offended during her zoom class because a student had a “Trump 2020” poster on his bedroom wall. She reported she was subject to cyber bullying and wanted the police to investigate. As it turns out, the student was suspended for two days. Sadly, we don’t hear this on the nightly news.
Another testimony quoted from The MoCo Conservative blog from a 1st grade mother was that her child was read to from a book entitled, Antiracist Baby, by Ibram X. Kendi. Another junior from Rockville High School had to write a report on the black lives matter (BLM) movement.
Another student at Montgomery College wrote a paper on anti-abortion. Her teacher told her the paper was written extremely well and would have received an “A,” but because of the content she would only receive a “C.”
Conservative teachers in Montgomery County are being bullied, intimidated, disciplined, and reprimanded for their conservative beliefs. They are mandated to teach using the new narrative. As a result, we see middle school and high school students standing on street corners holding up signs which support BLM, “social justice,” and de-funding the police. They are clueless and naïve relative to the history of Marxism and Communism.
Middle school and high school students are the product of our failed school system that devotes more time to social reform than teaching basic curriculum.
So, what are the solutions?
Remove the Marxist leaders governing Montgomery County, most of whom live in Takoma Park, Maryland, and replace them with conservative leaders who appreciate patriotism and embrace our historical past embedded in Judeo-Christian values;
Elect a school board that is willing to take a stand to resist the liberal teacher unions and Marxist leadership of Montgomery County;
Campaign for school vouchers so that those who cannot afford private schools can have the right to have their children receive a non-biased, normal education;
Place your children in private schools that reflect your moral and ethical values;
Move to a state or county that has a more conservative agenda; and
Accept that a do-nothing attitude will result in your child’s indoctrination and acceptance into the new narrative of Marxism.

The liberal establishment is working overtime to create propaganda in order to punish, accuse, label, and cancel those who disagree with their philosophy or who refuse to support the Democrat Party. They are the very ones creating division and racism in our country, right down to our local communities. It’s a “don’t look at the man behind the curtain” moment, where they try to create a diversion so that you don’t see the real people behind the scenes. They are the ones – the racists – who are dividing the people.
The term “anti-racism” sounds good and seems to make sense on the surface, but it’s deceptive. Dr. Ibram X. Kendi, an anti-racist activist and author of a children’s book titled, Antiracist Baby, claims that you are either a racist, or an anti-racist.
If you say that you are not racist, then you are racist. Unless you are involved in anti-racism activism, then you are a racist.
“There is no in-between safe space of ‘not racist.’” If you disagree or reject this philosophy, then you are an absolute, racist denier without exception. The interesting thing is that this philosophy is directed at white people as expressed in his interviews and writings.
Ibram X. Kendi is a toxic person who sows seeds of discord, hatred, and division while speaking in a subtle, gentle tone in order to deceive his audience.
Those who genuinely support this anti-racism philosophy are not purposed to eliminate racism or establish equality, but to dismantle society in order to establish an upper hand of power. It is a political play – it’s all about votes for the white liberals, and it’s about black supremacy, power, and retribution for those who want to be lawless without consequence.
Here is an example of Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) using racially discriminating propaganda. Which specific group is portrayed as the mad one?
If a white liberal pretends that they support anti-racism rhetoric, they are hoping to gain the minority vote. Yet, the politicians cater to this are the ones less likely to invite a person of color over to their home for dinner or to simply hangout.
Supremacy by any color is absolutely unacceptable. Nobody is better than another. Ever since Obama was in office, he has stoked the flames of racism and brought us nearly back to the 60’s with his rhetoric. If the majority in this country were made up of all white supremacists (as claimed the main problem today), Obama would not have been elected for two terms. Decades worth of healing and unity was all undermined during his terms. Yet, the very establishment that created this will blame it all on those who are not responsible.
“Privilege” is a political term. Everyone living in America is privileged to be in this great country. However, some disagree and covet (want) what others have so bad, they will do anything to demand or take it, even to go as far as murder. The term privilege is awful when color is paired with it. Whenever someone has something that the other desires, it is considered privilege even though the person has worked for it. The term privilege is loosely used as if the person who earned something got it for free, and that the anti-racists themselves should be entitled to have that also. This is what the welfare system has gotten us, from catering to it for all these years. This victim-hood/entitlement mentality is very toxic and destructive.
If anything, there is non-white privilege. There is preferential treatment for people of color receiving:
extra points on the SAT,
priority in college acceptance,
first right of refusal for government contracts,
lesser penalty for breaking the law (opposite of what is portrayed),
health prioritization and approval (opposite of what is portrayed), and
all hands on deck with formally filed complaints (establishment fears of civil rights violations).
White-filed complaints are mostly disregarded or dismissed. The liberal establishments and the legal system are rigged against white, heterosexual males.
Whites are more likely to be pulled over for moving violations than blacks, because it is assumed that whites will behave, comply, and are able to pay the fine (yes, that’s racist). Yet, if a white person told the officer “you pulled me over because I am white,” they would be laughed at. When a black person says to an officer “you pulled me over because I’m black,” the officer may not respond or buy into that statement, but they certainly would not laugh either. The bottom line is, whites are also profiled and yes, they receive different treatment that is not always positive or privileged as some would lead you to believe.
This machine, fueled by mere hatred and evil, includes: BLM, Antifa, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Nation of Islam, Black Liberation Movement, New Black Panther Party, the Democrat Party, Cancel Culture, Liberal States, and indoctrination mills. They use propaganda placed in school systems, news media, and social networking. There is nothing unifying about them or what they are doing.
Cities are being burned and people are being labeled, blamed, and assassinated. The machine consists of lynch mobs, and their goal is to destroy America.
In addition, the blame game, degrading others, and a fight for policy changes cannot address racism. Racism exists in the heart of man, regardless of color. Policy cannot change heart, where the true problem resides. Racism is also not a one-way road. Certain groups get a pass-go and are allowed to be justified in their racism as if it does not exist or apply to them. This is the real systematic racism that exists today.
School systems are pandering to this philosophy, and they work to establish that stereotypes and racism can only stem from white people. Ironically, they themselves are the ones stereotyping and being racist through their anti-racism activism, curriculum, and mandated training for teachers.
We as citizens are calling on ALL people of ALL races to be as one. We cannot let the establishment segregate us into groups, turn us from each other, and destroy our country. It’s time to replace this hatred with love and respect for others. We need to clean up our act, get it together, and not allow others to control or mandate the evil that they call good, and the good that they call evil.
There’s great danger in allowing emotions to dictate our decision making. In business it means lost sales; in politics it can translate into something much worse. Our nation is “drunk in emotion” and people’s reactions about how they respond to things are all based on their political beliefs.
It’s time we stop allowing what we FEEL in our hearts to override what we SEE with our eyes.
We’re living in a time where it’s become borderline impossible for everyone to get along with each other. Whether it’s with co-workers, family members, or our social media contacts, it’s more important than ever to understand how to accept opposing points of view. Mental Toughness is the answer.
Below is a list of some of the secrets mentally tough people use to help them handle people in any situation.
1. They don’t let their feelings get in the way
Mentally tough people understand that maintaining control of their feelings at all times is absolutely imperative (especially when dealing with a difficult person). Feelings and emotions are great, but allowing them to get the best of you when dealing with a hostile situation will spell disaster. The secret is to have a very thorough understanding of when you’re becoming emotional and to offset it with logic. Mentally tough people understand that logic and emotion are inversely related; as emotions go up, logic goes down. They have mastered their emotions and they NEVER allow their feelings to cloud their judgment.
2. They’re willing to suspend their beliefs
This is definitely easier said than done, but mentally tough people work hard to master it because they understand how powerful it is. Our nation has become incapable of accepting opposing points of view. Mentally tough people are very self-aware. They’re able to analyze their own beliefs and also the beliefs of others – even if they’re not in line with their own. Temporarily suspending their beliefs gives mentally tough people the ability to see someone’s stance with an open mind, devoid of any bias.
3. They use compartmentalization to find common ground
Compartmentalization is the ability to focus on one problem or challenge at a time, without allowing your emotions to “spill over” from one problem to another. Compartmentalizing gives mentally tough people the ability to keep their opposing views separate from other views they may actually agree on. Finding common ground on things that you agree on can be critical in a difficult situation. Without keeping your feelings under control, it can be very easy to find disagreement on things you might otherwise agree on – simply because you’re “emotionally charged.”
4. They’re professional listeners
We’ve all heard the old saying –
“There’s a reason we were given two ears and one mouth.”
Mentally tough people are experts at one of the most underrated skills available to humans – listening. We all have an innate desire to be heard and understood. Listening is an interactive process, and showing someone you’re truly comprehending their words is critical. Mentally tough people listen with the intent to understand, not the intent to reply.
“Racism” and “racist” are two of the most overused words in the English language.
Today the word “racist” is used to define any person, black or white, who makes a public statement that could be construed to be anything but complimentary. Loosely translated, if I disagree with you or your politics, I’m considered a racist.
Human beings are now afraid to speak for fear of being labeled a racist.
One could potentially label me a racist for speaking out against these two men and organizations.
If one would ask my view on racial equality, I would begin by sharing my family history. My ancestors were in fact abolitionists and members of the underground railroad. My grandfather, several generations removed, was in fact a defendant in a year-long trial because of his involvement in harboring a fugitive slave. He lost the case and was forced to pay punitive damages to the slave holder. This case, which took place in Philadelphia in 1823, became one of the many legal cases used to determine the right to own a slave. Later in January 1863, another grandfather of mine fought for the Union Army. He was captured at the Battle of Murphysboro, Tennessee and incarcerated at the Libby prison, a confederate prison located in Richmond, Virginia. The hardships he endured in this deplorable prison were inhumane and cruel. Mind you, he fought and suffered greatly so black men could be free and equal.
My past is deeply rooted in the advocacy of civil rights. I should not have to apologize for having white skin.
My ancestors would be saddened to learn how civil rights and equality are defined today. The term racism and racist have been cheapened to reflect political rhetoric without true meaning. Sadly, I see reverse discrimination in today’s society.
It’s politically incorrect for me to say this, but it is the elephant in the room. Why do we have a NAACP and not a NAAWP? Why do we have negro college funds and not white college funds? Why do we have Black Entertainment Network and not White Entertainment? Why do we have black history month and not white history month? Why do we have black Miss America and not White Miss America? Why aren’t professional sports teams more racially balanced? Why are 90% of the players on men’s basketball teams black? Does affirmative action only apply to black?
I just said what most white Americans think but are too afraid to say publicly for fear of being called a racist.
I had a dear neighbor who is black tell me she is fearful of police. She is fearful of being singled out because of her skin color. She has never personally been arrested or detained. Her husband and children are very successful and hold prominent positions in the government and academic world. She is very down on America even though America gave her husband and children opportunities for success. I fail to see the logic in her fear and hatred, but it is impossible to have an honest, open conversation with her when it comes to this subject. Sadly, I believe she has bought into the leftist narrative of oppression and truly believes what she hears on the news.
The reality is her family was successful not because of their skin color, but because of hard work and determination in an America that provides this opportunity for ALL.
This article will explore my theory on how cancel culture’s ultimate goal is that of a civil war in the United States, and how certain spending habits of Americans, particularly involving firearms, will help determine the outcome.
I’ve always started papers and articles with a specific quote in mind. For this particular topic, the quote comes easily:
We live in an age of technological advancement that is not only rapidly advancing our quality of life, but is also rapidly deteriorating our peace of mind. As a certain three-star General once stated, “[w]e live in a digital battlefield.”
Going on Twitter and, to a lesser degree, Facebook, you can clearly see that humanity is already at war in a battle hosted by servers, where the opposition (a small but loud and dangerous army) is aided by tyrants like Zuckerberg (Facebook) and Dorsey (Twitter), who brazenly carry an unlimited supply of artillery and ammunition (e.g., angry liberals, bots, shadow banning, blacklisting, blocking, suppression algorithms, etc.).
Digital warriors consist of conservative-leaning individuals who fight against left-leaning radicals online with memes and rhetoric intentionally mischaracterized by the Left as “divisive.” Both sides are pawns in the clash of ideas and morals; where one side’s sole intent is on damaging a person’s livelihood no matter the cost, the other side is fighting a behemoth of rage and idiocy funded by billionaires with a twisted agenda.
This is cancel culture.
Where just one “errant” or unpopular opinion psychologically triggers the snowflake social justice warriors and causes an avalanche of action to destroy reputations, families, and livelihoods, causing irreparable damage to those without job protection.
Cancel culture is, at first glance, an exercise of power to prevent the open debate of ideas. But I see its goal as more violently oppressive.
Journalist Jonathan Rauch recently created a “Cancel Culture Checklist” containing six warning signs explaining how to determine if you are an impending victim of cancel culture. The warning signs include: punitiveness, deplatforming, organization, secondary boycotts, moral grandstanding, and truthiness. It’s a good read for those who wish to learn more about specific actions being taken against those who refuse to adhere to the tenets set forth by the marxist mob of the Democrat party.
Below are the different phases of how cancel culture’s movement and its operatives work, based on my observations and research:
Utilize sleeper cells in all institutions to shove the same agenda down the throat of every student, customer, and viewer to increase reach;
Force defectors to apologize in order to create a feeling of shame for others who wish to do the same;
Dox and “swat” famous and well-known conservatives as a tool to prevent naturally-occurring, and at this point, increasing defection;
Slowly and consistently introduce radical, marxist ideas that your loyal followers must now obey in order to remain compliant and in the “popular” clique; this includes sanctioning murder of those who disagree with you;
Take the agenda out in the streets when an event (staged or not, but usually with a preventable casualty) provides the perfect opportunity to further divide based on issue/label of the day;
Declare war on anyone who lives in the suburbs, no matter what their political affiliation, because they are all selfish and evil; and
Stage a physical, tangible war between law abiding citizens and brainwashed, paid, and “zombified” communists of the Democrat party.
I believe we are currently, as a nation, somewhere between numbers 11/12 and 12/13 (depending where you live). Before we go into what needs to happen to get to the last two, however, let’s take a step back and talk about the types of behavior that allow cancel culture to flourish in our society.
The types of behavior that allow cancel culture to permeate in our society:
Apologetic/no backbone. When someone in the public eye takes a stand on an issue and provides a counter argument to the ideas put forth by the leaders of the radical, progressive Left, they are usually pressured to issue a public apology. When the apology is made public and shared, the Left has once again controlled opposition through their cancel culture agenda. So, what happens when that person does NOT apologize? Apart from clearly becoming persona non grata, something shifts in the narrative; since the Left can no longer control the individual, they employ tactics to make sure that the resistance to their ideals does not reach many people. Since they control the news and social media (to a certain extent), this is easy to do.
False sense of moral superiority. How many times have conservatives heard that we are selfish for putting our needs and our children’s needs above other’s needs? How many times have conservatives and to a lesser extent, moderate liberals, been told they need to “check their privilege”? The Left strategically brainwashes its loyal followers to believe that what they are espousing, the public shaming they are doing, is for “the greater good” of humanity. Don’t have kids! It’s bad for the environment. Don’t start learning pods! Your kids will have a higher chance to succeed later in life than others. Don’t go outside with your mask off! You can kill someone. The list is never-ending.
Overly emotional. Leftist liberals are the most hyper emotional people I have ever met. They rely on their emotions to guide their decision-making skills, thereby prioritizing goals and actions that make them feel good, instead of focusing on long-term, realistic, and pragmatic solutions that will do good. Is there a middle ground? Absolutely! But not for the cancel culture mob, which brings us to #4.
Refusal to compromise. Time and time again, the cancel culture mob’s devoted followers have stated that they refuse to listen to the “other side” and refuse to compromise. This means that it’s basically their way or the “highway.” No wonder they sound like they’re little children throwing a tantrum- would you teach your children to never compromise? I didn’t think so.
Will the suburbanites fight back?
At this point, I am confident that we can follow specific consumer spending trends of American citizens to find a solution/deterrent to cancel culture’s ultimate goal of instigating a civil war.
There is no doubt in my mind, and in the minds of millions of first-time gun owners, that there is a shift happening based on the number of firearm-related purchases by law-abiding citizens.
In case you weren’t paying attention, that is a HUGE number. You can clearly identify consumer spending habits with how safe a consumer is feeling at that time. Based on the number of gun sales alone within such a short time frame, it’s clear that personal, physical safety is being prioritized by many citizens living in the cities and suburbs.
“Gun sales have skyrocketed during the past three months, and a record-breaking 80.2 percent increase in sales was reported in May compared to last year, according to the shooting foundation. April’s data showed a 71.3 percent increase from 2019, and there was an 85.3 percent increase in March, according to information previously released by Small Arms Analytics and Forecasting.”
So, what is the point of showing you this data? It’s clear that more and more people are preparing to have to defend themselves, their families, their homes, and their businesses.
Firearms are the most effective threat deterrent.
You will kill cancel culture’s main, long-term goal of destroying and wreaking havoc on suburbia when you: legally buy at least one firearm (per adult); learn how to use that firearm; and practice self-defense techniques (with a trained professional) that will help you and your family stay safe and eventually escape from immediate danger when (not if) the mob comes for your community.
P.S. Did you think that I would tell you to “fight back” with words and feelings? We are way past that stage, don’t you think?
